‘Currency Crash’ Drives British Pound To A 31 Year Low As Deutsche Bank Sinks To The Lowest Level Ever

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

British Pound Brexit - Public DomainThe fallout from the Brexit vote continues to rock the European financial system.  On Wednesday, the British pound dropped to a fresh 31 year low as confidence in the currency continues to plummet.  At one point it had fallen as low as $1.2796 before rebounding a bit.  As I write this, it is still sitting at just $1.293.  Meanwhile, the problems for the biggest banks in Europe just continue to mount.  At one point on Wednesday Credit Suisse hit an all-time record low, and German banking giant Deutsche Bank closed the day at an all-time record closing low of 12.93.  Overall, Europe’s Stoxx 600 Bank Index closed at the lowest level in almost five years.  What we are watching is a full-blown financial meltdown in Europe, but because it is not personally affecting them yet, most Americans are not paying any attention to it.

The collapse of the British pound that we have seen since the Brexit vote has been nothing short of breathtaking.  In fact, CNN says that this “is what a currency crash looks like”…

This is what a currency crash looks like. The pound has slumped to $1.28, its lowest level in more than three decades.

Investors are dumping the pound following Britain’s vote to leave the European Union on June 23. The pound has dropped roughly 15% since the referendum day, when it reached $1.50.

After appearing to stabilize, the pound resumed its decline this week after three big asset management firms halted withdrawals from real estate investment funds.

Of course this is likely only just the beginning.  There are some analysts that are suggesting that the British pound could eventually hit parity with the U.S. dollar at some point.  We are seeing seismic shifts on the foreign exchange market right now, and this is going to affect trillions of dollars worth of currency-related derivatives.  It will be exceedingly interesting to see how all of this plays out.

Meanwhile, Deutsche Bank continues to get absolutely hammered.

If the biggest and most important bank in Germany is not completely imploding, then why does the stock price continue to crash time after time?

Since the start of 2016, the value of Deutsche Bank has fallen by half, and many have pointed out that the trajectory that it is on is very, very similar to Lehman Brothers in 2008.

My regular readers are probably sick and tired of hearing me warn about Deutsche Bank, so today I will let someone else do it.  According to an article that was just published by the BBC, Deutsche Bank is now “the most dangerous bank in the world”…

Deutsche Bank shares hit a new record low today. It’s value has halved since the beginning of the year.

So is it now the most dangerous bank in the world?

According to the International Monetary Fund – yes.

Last week, the IMF said that, of the banks big enough to bring the financial system crashing down, Deutsche Bank was the riskiest. Not only that, Deutsche Bank’s US unit was one of only two of 33 big banks to fail tests of financial strength set by the US central bank earlier this year.

At this point Deutsche Bank is scrambling to raise cash to stave off an imminent implosion.  Just today, I came across a report about how they plan to sell at least a billion dollars worth of shipping loans in order to bring in some much needed funds.  Many of the steps that they are taking are reminiscent of what Lehman Brothers tried to do just prior to their collapse, and that alone should tell you something.

At the same time all of this is going on, things in Italy just continue to get even worse.  As of this moment, approximately 17 percent of all bank loans held by Italian banks are considered to be “non-performing”.  In other words, they are absolutely swamped by bad debts.  At the height of the 2008 crisis, only about 5 percent of the loans held by U.S. banks were bad.  So what we are watching unfold in Italy right now could definitely be described as “cataclysmic”.

Since the Brexit vote, Italian banks have been hit harder than anyone else.  The following comes from CNN

Shares in Italy’s Banca Monte Dei Paschi Di Siena have crashed 45% in 10 days, forcing regulators to temporarily ban short-selling in the stock. The bank has been given until Friday to come up with a plan to reduce its bad loans by 40% by 2018.

It’s not alone. Other Italian bank stocks have fallen by about 30% since June 23, when the U.K. voted to leave the European Union. Italian officials are trying to find ways to shore up the country’s financial system.

Italian banks have been choking on bad debt for years, but the U.K. vote has thrown their problems into sharp relief.

Personally, I have been amazed that the European financial system has been able to hold it together for this long.  A total collapse was inevitable, but I really thought that it would have started before now.  Up until this time we have seen small crisis after small crisis, but in 2016 the full-blown meltdown has finally arrived.

And this growing crisis in Europe is going to have a dramatic impact on the entire planet.  Everywhere you look the economic fundamentals are getting worse, and if you won’t believe me, perhaps you will believe this editorial by Tim Quast on CNBC

The bottom line is that the fundamentals of the economy and market don’t look good: Whoever you’re listening to — the Federal Reserve, to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, to the International Monetary Fund — hoary heads of the dismal science see deepening malaise worsened by the Brexit, creaky European banks, possible copycat flight from the euro zone — even a slowdown for the U.S.

Can a market characterized by declining money flows, weakening fundamentals and arbitrage that has posted no material gain in over 18 months gather steam? Anything is possible. But it’s not a sound conclusion.

Whenever I post an article about Europe, it tends to get significantly less response than many of my other articles do.

But I hope that my fellow Americans will start paying attention to this growing crisis, because it is going to deeply affect all of us.

What is happening to the European financial system right now is truly history in the making, and I believe that it is going to be one of the biggest news stories of the second half of 2016.

      Just about every chart and graph seem to indicate that everything has much further to fall over the next several months.

  • Robert

    EU members never had a chance. National cultures too different in values and work ethics. Diversity does not appear to work at any level. There must be a common set of values besides the negative value of banking greed and corruption. It does seem that one result is “forcing” more Jews out of mainland Europe to Israel. Watch for brown shirts.

    • retired22

      Different currencies are needed for different national economies,the one currency,…the Euro will kill the EU!
      The British were smart to keep their own currency.
      Otherwise Brexit & freedom might have been impossible!

  • billtheguy

    England did the right thing. It’s gonna hurt for a while, but they’re better off. Sometime in the past the whole world started living off future debt. It never works. Here in the US, I’m waiting on the big one, but it seems as though the public is being “let down easy.”

    • aldownunder

      Short term pain for long term gain

    • MIchael in Chicago

      They will only be better off if taxes are

      significantly reduced and reforms are made to banks and businesses. Someone with some intelligence is going to need to get things up and running.

  • MIchael in Chicago

    DB might be a buy at $8-9 a share. Eventually they will get bailed out and years from now and many years from now the stock will be at stupid new highs.

    • alan

      Exactly. Wait for it to go low and buy in. Then comes the bailout and watch it go up. It will be a miracle, then sell and get the hell out.

  • Tim

    It’s hard to say what will happen. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that during the last crisis the Federal Reserve made $16 trillionin loans to corporations and financial institutions both domestically and abroad. Why wouldn’t the Federal Reserve bail out Deutsche Bank? I guess it’s a matter of how long The Powers That Be want to keep the current world order going before they try and implement a “new world order.” Is that what this Brexit matter is all about, i.e. an effort at further centralization?

    • Bob332

      Fed Res cannot “bail out” the D Bank. We’re broke too!

      • Tim

        Yes, this nation is broke, but the Federal Reserve is not part of the U.S. government. It is a privately owned corporation that can print as much currency as it pleases. So why can’t it bail out Deutsche Bank?

      • Lennie Pike

        Tim spoke the truth – except the figure was a lot more than $16 trillion and they weren’t loans – they were gifts stolen from those who will pay for the crime through inflation – primarily by ignorant Americans as yourself – that is if you are an American.

        They can keep this up until hyperinflation sets in but before it does, which will be very soon, they will cause the ignorant of the world to gladly accept a cashless financial system.

        After a couple of years under the cashless system all ignorance of things financial will be gone but it will not matter any more – like in North Korea, criminal thugs will be in total control until God intervenes.

        • Lennie Pike

          “Loans” in the billions were stolen through inflation and given to individuals also. Like those two picks in the movie Trading Places – Mortimer and whoever – they see it as their money and will do as they damn well please.

          • none

            How can I get one of those federal Reserve bank loans?

          • Lennie Pike

            I will never know and don’t wanna know.

  • Bill

    Brexit happened because the people had a chance to tell the world they had enough of being told what to do by the elite. The same can happen in America “if” we work together to #DEFEATtheELITE.

    • Lennie Pike

      Mexit!

  • Yesterday

    There is a end to all great stretches in time. Call them societies or whatever but the time line is 600 to 800 years. Whether it was the Egyptian’s, Romans, even the Islamic rule right before the time we are in right know they all ended, probably for the same reason our time will end. This time started around 1300 AD after the fall of Islam. How long it will take? Most take hundreds of years and will not be clear for hundreds more. It will probably be looked back as the 20 the century as the beginning of the end. Whats is most important is what will be next. Since the time was mostly a Christian ruled time my guess would be some sort of pagan type ideology. Its sad that so many will live and die with out knowing the love of Jesus.

  • greanfinisher .

    A Deutsche Bank collapse would likely cause a domino effect that would impact the big U.S. banks. That would trigger a severe financial crisis in this country which would give the tyrant in the White House the perfect pretense to invoke martial law, cancel the November elections and confiscate all firearms.

    • Guest

      I doubt it. He’s ready to move on. He has become quite wealthy over the past 8 years, and he’s looking forward to continuing to live the good life with his ill-gotten wealth. He played his part in destroying this once great nation, and sadly the next puppet to hold that office will most likely be worse than the current one.

      Meet your new boss. Worse than the old boss.

      • greanfinisher .

        Even worse than Carter?

        • Brian

          Are you serious? Obama is by far the worst President in the United States history! The damage done by him will take many years to recover from. If Hillary takes the baton from Obama then things will simply go from really bad to hellish!

          Our only hope is Divine Intervention, and that is exactly what i am praying/fasting for.

            The nation will NEVER recover from Obama. Never!!

            “Where will you be stricken again, as you continue in your rebellion? The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even to the head there is nothing sound in it, only bruises, welts, and raw wounds, not pressed out or bandaged, not softened with oil.

            Your land is desolate, your cities are burned with fire, your fields- strangers are devouring them in your presence; it is desolation, as overthrown by strangers (the godless). And the daughter of Zion is left like a shelter in a vineyard, like a watchman’s hut in a cucumber field, like a besieged city.

            Unless the LORD of hosts had left to us a few survivors, we would have been like Sodom and we would be like Gomorrah.” (Is. 1:5-9)

            The tribulation for the U.S. comes before the one for the world. We are the forerunner! BUT, I know Whom I have believed in and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him, against “that day”!”

      I agree with your first statement, the “domino effect”, BUT concerning “martial law” good luck with that. The majority of the military can’t stand the POS CIC as do most law enforcement.When the SHTF they WILL be thinking of their families not the POS and his “directives”.!

      • greanfinisher .

        Barack Obama purged the military so it will likely follow orders from the dictator-to-be. In the case of martial law, all law enforcement would be carried out strictly by the military.

      • bc

        Foreign troops will do the heavy work, aiding the wussies that are left in the military that will follow orders. The real soldiers will not obey.

          Sadly, from what I’ve read the FBI has closed its investigation, so it looks like she will go unpunished. What a travesty! This nation is gone. Lawlessness abounds!

            This is spot on today as well under the current nitwit running things. If you supported Obama’s re-election you cannot say you are appalled or upset at the sniper killing of police officers or the state of race relations in this nation. It was apparent what he was and where we were heading and the majority of voters opted for continuing the decline so long as the EBT still got reloaded monthly. Self reliance is a lost art but its absence will assure a complete parasitic purge once the storm breaks!

      A Deutsche Bank collapse would trigger the global collapse . You see what’s different about this is we’re talking Sovereign Banks as opposed to mere players. There is no back up for Sovereign Banks when they go , and believe me they’re going soon, all global finance will be taken over by the IMF using SDR’s. It will be at this time a new global currency will take the stage and at this time when ” social cohesion ” breaks down. ( diplomatic term for riots and civil disorder )
      When people go to ATM’s and they don’t work just watch what ensues after a few days of these failures.
      People get ready for peril on scale you’ve never witnessed. In America there’re thousands maybe millions of people who will refuse to be told their life’s work in $’s is suddenly wiped out and no longer exists. The same thing goes for European citizens.
      We’re about to witness the death of Ponzi Banking or the Fiat credit currency we now use and it’s going to be severely unpleasant.
      Prepare !

    They don’t want it to go down. But, they also have to continue on with their manipulative practices…

    Brexit does not effect anything economically for certain. Except perhaps banks, that don’t give anyone any specifics on what it is they actually do most of the time. But because people are so afraid of what the remain campaign has put out thus far, they are trying to sell property and property funds are not letting them.

    Add onto this there has been no brexit yet. Article 50 has not been declared.

    Friends of mine have just bought an apartment in Rome. They paid cash and were very happy because it only cost them $40,000 (AUS) whereas an equivalent place in Sydney would have been over $500,000 (AUS) They get reasonable rent and are planning to move there.

    When Deutsche Bank implodes it will create an inescapable financial black hole.

      At least I should have gotten a “comment deleted” for my truthful comment concerning J B’s historically accurate avatar.

      Again – with all of the good stuff redacted – the star of David has absolutely nothing to do with Judaism or King David.

        If that “comment deleted” above is mine – thanks a lot, but any truthful comment which is deleted that doesn’t equate to yelling fire in a crowded theater makes it seem like you are afraid of losing what the people I was critical of could take away from you.

        • Lennie Pike

          Wow!!!! I just noticed – all of J B’s comments were deleted due only to his avatar being the Star of David with a swatztika in the middle of it which is proof that the author of this blog hasn’ a clue of the root cause the world is falling apart. He has either been fooled as many have by Satan’s people – the fake Jews of the synogouge of Satan who are installing a one world totalitarian government, or he is afraid of losing what they can take from him. The evidence is everywhere and it is not being caused by the Jews – Gods Chosen People. That’s it for me here – ever.

            Except for one last message to the stupid Sheriff’s Deputy and his stupid commanders I’m assuming who work at NSA: words have specific meanings and many of them may seem to have the same meaning to know it all control freaks such as some of you – when in reality and depending on the context in which they are used – have a completely different meaning. So if you need to go back to school or need to learn how to think a little better – you should do it. In your line of work it is very important (to others at least) that you learn the differences so that no peaceful innocent law (just and Constitutional law) abiding people such as myself get accidentally hurt. No one wants you hurt either.

            There is a huge difference between the words “resist”, and the word “refuse”. 99.999% of the time that someone is arrested when they are “resisting” arrest, they are not killed by the Police, and if by chance they do die it is usually accidental – although we all know that number is heading in the wrong direction.

            It is possible for someone to refuse to be arrested – you figure out how – and if one is being arrested for giving food to a hungry man, I can’t think of any better reason to peacefully refuse arrest and would if he situation made that possible. Then what?

            If someone came pounding violently on the side of your house at the equivalent of 4 a.m. in the morning, then entered your house and began to open the door to your bedroom where you had been dead asleep with your wife, and then went back outside and around to the bedroom window and opened it – WHAT WOULD YOU DO!!!!!!! The intruder would never had made it back out of the house or away from the bedroom door is the answer because in that case 99.999% of LEO’s would have killed that intruder. Lucky for you I’m as smart as .00001% of the LEO’S out there. Way too many of the exact wrong type of people go into law enforcement – everyone knows it but there are a lot of good ones too.

    Bond bubbles, toils and double global troubles! What will America do? Will we repent as a nation? Warning comes before destruction and our financial markets are pointing to just that – the end of a fiat currency that was designed to collapse from its inception. The central banks have been propping the economy up for years and the money honeymoon is coming to a “controlled” end.

    I read a statement a while ago, not sure by whom that the Western world, I assume they were talking about America, would need an alibi if the Fed, and the Bank of England are forced to resort to even more funny money. I am afraid the feds are in a nowhere to run situation along with all of the global bankers. The (fiscal) chickens are coming home to roost. The financial markets and the money hand that controls them must now face the consequences of their bad deeds. It is going to be a bumpy ride indeed.

    It’s an interesting story that unfolds. First off, as to the devaluation of the pound, it should be noted that the island is highly educated with a large manufacturing base, as well as some of the greatest financial institutions on Earth. This means that imports from Britain will be much cheaper. You may actually see a large hiring streak and optimistically, growth in manufacturing, which is unheard of in First World countries. If that happens, expect to see the EU disintegrate. In the short run, expect to see inflation in Britain. But the manufacturing centers are hard assets that still exist. They may do quite well. What they HAVE done is lit the fuse on the destruction of the welfare states of Europe: Greece, Italy, Spain. Warm and sunny, with an abundance of illegal immigrants seeking social handouts, which the local populations cannot possibly support. As wages collapse and jobs evaporate, only an elitist would think it’s a good idea to inject millions of welfare recipients that will work for next to nothing and compete head on with local populations, already in a job crisis.

      you made my royal mountain stand firm;
      but when you hid your face,
      I was dismayed.

      To you, Lord, I called;
      to the Lord I cried for mercy:

      “What is gained if I am silenced,
      if I go down to the pit?
      Will the dust praise you?
      Will it proclaim your faithfulness?

      Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me;
      Lord, be my help.”

      You turned my wailing into dancing;
      you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
      that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.

      Lord my God, I will praise you forever.

    “Can we believe that the real God, if there is one, ever ordered a man to be killed simply for making hair oil, or ointment? We are told in the thirtieth chapter of Exodus, that the Lord commanded Moses to take myrrh, cinnamon, sweet calamus, cassia, and olive oil, and make a holy ointment for the purpose of anointing the tabernacle, tables, candlesticks and other utensils, as well as Aaron and his sons; saying, at the same time, that whosoever compounded any like it, or whoever put any of it on a stranger, should be put to death. In the same chapter, the Lord furnishes Moses with a recipe for making a perfume, saying, that whoever should make any which smelled like it, should be cut off from his people. This, to me, sounds so unreasonable that I cannot believe it. Why should an infinite God care whether mankind made ointments and perfumes like his or not? Why should the Creator of all things threaten to kill a priest who approached his altar without having washed his hands and feet? These commandments and these penalties would disgrace the vainest tyrant that ever sat, by chance, upon a throne.”
    ― Robert G. Ingersoll, Some Mistakes of Moses

    “You can cite a hundred references to show that the biblical God is a bloodthirsty tyrant, but if they can dig up two or three verses that say ‘God is love,’ they will claim that you are taking things out of context!”

      The one who created all things is worthy to dictate the dispensation of those things. Rejection of God’s authority is rejection of God himself culminating in idolatry.

    • JC Teecher

      Many try to argue over why God does this or that. The mistake comes when people try to blame God for something.

      He tells us, by His Word…”I Am that I Am”

      In other words, He can be whoever he wants to be and change His mind whenever He wants to.

      He made/created us…”for His pleasure”, and not the other way around.
      Too many people believe that we were created for our own pleasures, and self fulfillment.

      God himself, set the rules for our lives.
      Just like he said to not touch the Ark of the Covenant. Uzza put his hand on it and God smote him and he died. Why?
      Is not for us to ask why, it is for us to obey.
      God has His way and His reasons. If we obey, we get blessings. If we don’t obey, and scoff and mock we get a gourd thumping.
      sometimes it is a gourd thumping we don’t recover from, like ole Uzza got. sometimes it is cursings that continue until we make it right.

        • mtntrek3

          Hi Preacher62…… hasn’t the Lord changed His mind at times? As in punishment upon certain ones after they repented? Just asking. Thanks.

          • Preacher62

            To assume that God changes his mind would be to apply human attributes to God. In my humble opinion God is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, and immutable. To say that God changed his mind would be to assume that his first plan was going to be a mistake. I for one will never assume that God can make a mistake nor that he needs to repent of a decision. To say such things is twisting scripture as I have been accused of. IF God needs to change his mind then that leads to the conclusion that either he did not know what was going to happen already insinuating that he is not omniscient, or worse yet that he does not have the power to alter the end results to make them fit his will, leading to the conclusion that he is no omnipotent.

            Taking repentance for example; depending on your theology there are a couple of ways that this could play out. Being a Calvinist, I believe that God is in charge of all things and no one comes to Christ unless the father calls them. I also believe that no one seeks God and no one fears God until and unless God cuts away our sinful rebellious human nature (Colossians 2) and replaces it with his own Holy Spirit. Or as stated otherwise, replacing our heart of stone with a heart of flesh. Only God can do this and it is entirely supernatural. Man cannot and has no desire to change his own heart. It is ALL of God.

            Most familiar story would be Ninevah. Jonah was forced by God to do his bidding to preach to Ninevah, which God had intentions of sparing from the get go or else he would not have sent Jonah to preach to them, nor would he have changed their hearts of stone to hearts of flesh so that they would repent. Yet scripture still says that he changed his mind about destroying Ninevah. So in a sense God does change his mind but he did so at the dawn of creation. All of mankind is lost, hates God and is headed for hell because of our sinfulness. God condemned all of mankind to Hell BUT, he decided that he would save a remnant for himself to bring glory to his name as attested to in (Romans 9). To some that might appear to be a change of mind but I believe that it was God’s plan from the very beginning.

            As stated, this is my theology and I will not frown on you if yours differs. We must each work out our own salvation with fear and trembling not with arrogance and diatribes. I hope this was understandable. Its a book’s worth of information condensed to 3 paragraphs. God Bless

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            Sorry You Are Wrong There Are Examples In the Bible Of God Changing His Mind………

          • Preacher62

            So the God you worship makes mistakes and must be corrected by humans with superior intellect. I can’t buy into that. God is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent and IMMUTABLE. God does not make bad decisions that need to be changed.

          • mtntrek3

            Thanks for the reply. I mostly agree w/you. Good info. . God changing His mind about punishing people or groups of people to me doesn’t mean God made a mistake….. because if He did go ahead and punish them, it would’ve been because the ones the punishment was directed towards didn’t repent. Sometimes He changed His mind about punishment because they repented. So, to me that would be right for God to do also (not that I’m one to say whether God is right or wrong, God is always right). He wouldn’t be making a mistake either way. And yes, He is perfect . God Bless you also. Chris.

            God Is A Spirit Not A Man…..God Cannot Lie…..

            Maybe what We Are Speaking About Is Confusing Because Gods Ways and Gods Thoughts are Higher than Ours….So We Use the human expression ” changing our mind ” but God knows the future the past the present all at once and God does not move in our limited existence SO to use the human expression ” change mind ” is a gigantic human oversimplification…..but Moses did fall on his face and pray for mercy for those worshipping the golden idol and God did grant this mercy…..so did He change his mind or did he know all along where this was going and what was going to happen….I try to use my frail mind to understand The Almighty Creator Of All…and this doesnt work too well. God Bless and Shalom

            JC accused me of twisting scripture and needing to renounce my status as a preacher. Then you said I should thank him for doing so. Pretty Nasty. Biblical discussions should be more than that I would think.

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            We cannot understand God’s Ways and Thoughts….and Teecher took This Scripture at its Face Value which most people do….Moses did Plead and Pray and a Far Different Outcome was Realized….did God ” change His mind ” or Did God ” change the outcome ” It Is Semantics.

            Teecher did bring up a good point which got us to think “change of mind or change of outcome”

            I apologize to you for saying to apologize to Teecher as that is your decision….I just wanted to see this end SO will you change your mind and change the outcome and we can move on.

          • Preacher62

            Apologies as well and no I was/am not offended. I have not been offended in decades. Far too thick skinned and argumentative for that. lol

          • JC Teecher

            Preacher, you need to read a little slower and read with understanding. I never directly accused you of twisting scripture, but I “inferred” that the scriptures I had used, to make my point, could not be twisted to make any other conclusion than the fact that God did change His mind about the destruction, based on Moses interaction on their behalf.

            If God does not change His mind and position towards sinners, based on intercessory prayers, then why even bother? Why even have “freewill”?

            The fact is, He does change His position and mind about individuals.
            If you want to twist the words to mean that God changing His position or thoughts towards people, “does not mean He changed His mind”, then i stick to my statement that calling yourself a Preacher, may bring judgment since “judgment does begin at the pulpit”. You could be just simply making a play on words to support your own previous statements that you stand firmly on.
            I don’t know and at this point i really don’t care, because that is between you and your Heavenly Father. Just know I did not set out to offend you or cause you to get your feathers ruffled and hackles up.

            I stand firmly on my interpretation of the facts as I read them from the Word.

          • Preacher62

            My questions still stand. This is a discussion, not a battle I hope.
            So do you believe that God knew Moses was going to ask for mercy? Do you believe that he already knew that he was going to have mercy?

          • JC Teecher

            I have given a reply to your questions, not so much out of a need to oblige you, but for the sakes of others that may learn something here.

            My fairly long response is held up in moderation. You may get it in twenty minutes or it may take twenty hours, who knows.

            It definitely is a discussion, because i don’t argue scripture, nor do i see any benefit to battle. I will battle with a heathen, though.
            I hope you are still my friend, even if we have a different style and difference of opinion.

          • JC Teecher

            We got hit pretty hard. At the foothills home we got minor damage with limbs and debris.

            At the b/o, mountain top home, we got pummeled hard, and have major limb and tree damage. I lost a 70 year old red oak and many tops. Luckily no property damage, since it was laying about sixty feet from the back porch. Will make for some good firewood this winter, if I can get it worked up and stacked pretty soon.

            Still no electricity at the b/o. Nuthing like Hugo in ’89 though. Was down for two weeks then.

            Folks should take this as a sign of future events. Prepare with whatever means they must, and plan to live without electricity or fuel for long periods.

          • JC Teecher

            Sorry Preacher62,
            I came not to offend or make arrogant statements. My intention is to bring forth truth as is evident by the Word.

            I don’t think you can convince anyone that God did not change His mind about destroying the Israelites, based solely on Moses intervention, after throughly reading Deuteronomy 9.

            There are more examples, but God made concessions to Abraham on the destruction of Sodom, based on conditions. Of course we know the conditions were not met, but if they had of been, God would have changed his mind about that total destruction as well.

            To say God can, and has changed His mind is “not” saying, God made a mistake…never. He just made a different decision is all.

            I understand your position, but you can’t have it both ways.
            Just make sure you are teaching rightly and dividing the word rightly is all I am suggesting.

            I too, make mistakes and accept my chastisement for doing so. In fact, i want it, because that shows me that my Heavenly Father is watching my words and sending understanding…as long as I am patient and listening, and not operating under my own assumptions, and steadfastness, just to try and prove a point.

          • Preacher62

            The point I am trying to make is that God knows all, sees all, and is in control of all. For that I cannot apologize. To say that “he just made a different decision” means that somehow God did not know in advance what a person or persons were going to do given a certain set of options. Thus the questions I submitted earlier. Again, this is a discussion not a battle. I am listening.

          • mtntrek3

            Hey Bill. Well, actually it does seem to me God changes His mind at times, but to me that doesn’t imply God makes mistakes……. because He is perfect. Whether He goes ahead w/His initial plan or not depends upon our actions or inactions. Either way He decides upon will be correct. Anyway, take care. God Bless. Chris.

        • JC Teecher

          I beg to differ. God was about to destroy the whole lot of those worshiping the molten calf when Moses returned with the Ten Commandments that God had written in Stone.

          Moses, fasted, prayed and “pleaded” with God to not destroy them. It took forty days and forty nights, until God…”changed his mind”, and did not destroy the people.

          Now, are you still holding your ground that God “does not change his mind”?
          I believe i would backtrack on that opinion and admit you were wrong, otherwise; claiming to be a preacher may not be the best position to be in when you can’t follow scripture.

          Twisting scripture to fit your opinion or ideology is what God warns about throughout all the Bible.

          I’m just sayin’, and in no way am I trying to be mean about it. I just follow truth as it flows from the Word and the Spirit.

          • Preacher62

            Arrogance is not a virtue. Lashing out with personal attacks sets a bad precedent for the non-believers watching. Yes I hold to my ground. To assume that God changes his mind assumes that God makes mistakes. See my response to mtntrek3 if you are interested.

        Your interpretation of “I Am that I Am” is the strangest interpretation. How do you come to your conclusion that we only exist “for His pleasure” ? Here’s the original Hebrew. When I read this it seems to me it means some kind of panentheism or pantheism type expression.

        • df NJ

          I Am that I Am (אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה, ehyeh ašer ehyeh [ehˈje aˈʃer ehˈje]) is the common English translation (JPS among others) of the response God used in the Hebrew Bible when Moses asked for his name (Exodus 3:14). It is one of the most famous verses in the Torah. Hayah means “existed” in Hebrew; ehyeh is the first person singular imperfect form and is usually translated in English Bibles as “I am” or “I will be” (or “I shall be”), for example, at Exodus 3:14.

          • df NJ

            Ehyeh asher ehyeh literally translates as “I Am Who I Am.” The ancient Hebrew of Exodus 3:14 lacks a future tense as modern English does, yet a few translations render this name as “I Will Be What I Will Be”,

You know df I’m sorry that you can’t be God and there is s being greater than any of us including that moron in the White House that you probably worship line so many fools in this country. How sad. Yes, Rome is falling.

        • df NJ

          Actually, I’m one of the many in NJ who just don’t care about politics. You are completely delusional if you think the Republicans are any better than the Democrats and vise versa. Obama is a puppet and really doesn’t have any power at all. The Speaker of the House has more power than the president. We do not live in a dictatorship, yet.

            Ok, we can agree on some issues. Have a great weekend.

    • Mark

      I agree 100%…That idiot in the White House needs to go too. Obozo the clown has been slowly destroying the foundations of this country for the last 8 years. His comments on the Dallas riots last night shows how pathetic a leader he has been.

      • Jerry C

        he’s not an idiot by any stretch of the imagination. Even an idiot would get something right once in a great while. After almost 8 years, he’s got a perfect record. Man. Of. Lawlessness.

        • Mark

          True…He is a Man of Lawlessness.

    Assk away.. but Hillary will be our new Radiantly Glorious President! 😀

    • Bill G Wilminton NC

      Would Be A Sad Day For America….But For A Nation That Kills 3000 Babies a Day….A Corrupt, Immoral, Debased, Abortion Supporting Hillary Fits.

      VOTE ANTI-ABORTION VOTE TRUMP

      • SnohtBlossom

        How much prior political experience does Trump have?
        NADA!!! ZIP!!!! ZILCH!!! ZERO!!!
        He talks the talk, but never walked the walk.
        But hey.. it’s only THE PRESIDENCY!
        Maybe next we’ll grab people off the street w/no medical training to do surgery!

        Neither did Ulysses Grant or Dwight Eisenhower have a prior politcal position, though both had a strong military background. Dwight being ” The Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in World War II”
        and Grant “Commanding General of the United States Army”
        How much military background does Trump have? NADA!!! ZIP!!!! ZILCH!!! ZERO!!!

        “no major U.S. company has filed for Chapter 11 more than Trump’s casino empire in the last 30 years.”
        He has filed four business bankruptcies. Maybe he thinks it’s just as easy to f

          Farmers on Small Farms, Miners 5 Miles Down, Manufacturers and Machinists…. All Made The WEALTH Of This Country.

          Not One POLITICIAN Added even One Penny THEY Have Only Taken !

          A Businessman Like TRUMP knows that WEALTH is either Mined, Grown or Manufactured.

          VOTE TRUMP we may have a chance !.

    Brexit was the cleverly engineered trigger the PTB Banksters were always going to use for Phase One of the final collapse, but in order to hide the cause from Joe Bigmac & his Dad, they needed something to blame.

    Now they must have a major event, or even start a real World War to take everyone’s mind off the cashless, one world currency restart which is Phase Two.

    • df NJ

      I think the people of Britain just voted and it wasn’t engineered.

  • df NJ

    People just keep copulating and buying into the system:

    “WASHINGTON (AP) — Employers shook off two months of weak hiring by adding 287,000 jobs in June, a robust pace that suggests a resilient U.S. economy recovering from a slump early in the year.”

    It’s like it’s never going to end.

    • Bill G Wilminton NC

      Half the jobs were minimum wage and a large percentage of the rest were not much better. Most of the hires were age over 55…..and all the numbers were questionable…just like all else with this administration.

    It sure smells like a implosion is about to take place. You can kind of feel it.
    Deutsche Bank will take the hole system down the drain, Ross Perot once described a giant sucking sound with NAFTA, we are about to witness this giant financial implosion, how big time will tell.

    I said to myself,
    I’m going to quit complaining!
    I’ll keep quiet, especially when the ungodly are around me.
    But as I stood there silently the turmoil within me grew to the bursting point.
    The more I mused, the hotter the fires inside.
    Then at last I spoke and pled with God: Lord,
    help me to realize how brief my time on earth will be.
    Help me to know that I am here for but a moment more.
    My life is no longer than my hand!
    My whole lifetime is but a moment to you.
    Proud man! Frail as breath! A shadow! And all his busy rushing ends in nothing. He heaps up riches for someone else to spend.
    And so, Lord, my only hope is in you.

    Save me from being overpowered by my sins, for even fools will mock me then.

    Lord, I am speechless before you. I will not open my mouth to speak one word of complaint, for my punishment is from you.

    Lord, don’t hit me anymore—I am exhausted beneath your hand.

    When you punish a man for his sins, he is destroyed, for he is as fragile as a moth-infested cloth; yes, man is frail as breath.

    Hear my prayer, O Lord; listen to my cry!
    Don’t sit back, unmindful of my tears. For I am your guest.
    I am a traveler passing through the earth, as all my fathers were.

    Spare me, Lord!
    Let me recover and be filled with happiness again before my death.

    but alas.. there is a solution to all the world’s chaotic chaos and it has always been the solution..a new jew one world order,where the rule of law[ not the rule of the jungle] will dictate nation’s conduct..
    and…
    .a one world digital currency [Bitcoin] ,AND..
    a one world religion[the 666 satanic beast system ruled by the one world dictator,the Anti-Christ..
    and yes..folks will stand in line and beg for their mark and chip,but by sheer co-incidence many already have their mark and many already have chips too..the beast mark is their tattoo,and no..there is no such thing as a “Christian” tattoo..in fact..Christ forbids any marking or marking for the dead on the body whasoever [Leviticus 19:28]

  • Puty

    Just goes to show ya that all these idiots that think they are ‘Elite’ and can make $ out of nothing are idiots. When is it time to get rid of all of them and the various groups like the World Bank, IMF, etc and push the reset button and pull in our horns and rebuild!?!?! It used to be good enough to want to run a country but now all these ego-maniacs want to control all of us in the world! In the meantime Russia and China are licking their chops waiting.

  • Preacher62

    I also believe in freewill, however I believe that unregenerate man’s freewill is to Hate God and seek his own way. I can appreciate your thoughts though as your first paragraph aptly describes my doctrine for most of my life, actually till about a year ago. This changed when I came to the realization that God has no need to be loved. He created man for HIS own glory not because of some need or desire.

    God will be glorified in those he regenerates because he does so even though they do not deserve it. He will also be glorified in those he condemns because it is the righteous and just thing to do. Our calling is still the same regardless. To go and preach the Gospel and then let God do with the hearers as he so chooses. God Bless

    Bank of America, its actually at a lower price and has some surprise danger in it.

  • Chris

    I looked at Deutsche Bank in Aug 2015. There net-worth a year ago negative $1 Billion. Yet the Octopus-Squid Federal Reserve probably has there back keeping them alive – for example the $16 Trillion in secret loans they gave European banks in 2008. Deutsche Bank has $55 TRILLION in derivative exposure, it’s a number larger than the GDP of the PLANET. This is probably the *real reason* why Britain split from the European Union – a secret multi-national bailout was underway and it was too odious for the Brits to be bailing out a nation that they had been at war with seven decades ago..

  • Chris

    ALL DEBT – Sovereign and Personal must be Cancelled. To do anything else is to leave the chains of tyranny upon the people of the planet. Jail the bankers..
