‘Mentally Unstable’ Obama Looking To Start A War With China?

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

Obama SelfieThis week, Barack Obama sent a guided missile destroyer into disputed waters in the South China Sea to see if the Chinese would start shooting at it. Yes, this is what he actually did. Fortunately for us, the Chinese backed down and did not follow through on their threats to take military action. Instead, the Chinese have chosen to respond with very angry words. The Chinese ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai, says that what Obama did was “a very serious provocation, politically and militarily.” And as you will see below, a state-run newspaper stated that China “is not frightened to fight a war with the US in the region”. So why in the world would Obama provoke the Chinese like this? Yes, the Chinese claims in the South China Sea are questionable. But there are other ways to resolve things like this. My friend Rick Wiles began his radio broadcast yesterday by suggesting that these kinds of actions show that Barack Obama has become “mentally unstable”, and I would have to agree. You don’t risk military confrontations that could potentially spark World War III unless you have a really good reason to do so.

The Global Times is a Chinese state-run newspaper that has very close ties to the Communist party. After Obama’s provocation in the South China Sea, it published an editorial entitled “After the show, it’s time for US destroyer to leave“. The following is the most alarming portion of that editorial…

In face of the US harassment, Beijing should deal with Washington tactfully and prepare for the worst. This can convince the White House that China, despite its unwillingness, is not frightened to fight a war with the US in the region, and is determined to safeguard its national interests and dignity.

Beijing ought to carry out anti-harassment operations. We should first track the US warships. If they, instead of passing by, stop for further actions, it is necessary for us to launch electronic interventions, and even send out warships, lock them by fire-control radar and fly over the US vessels.

Another major Chinese newspaper also responded very angrily

The People’s Liberation Army Daily, China’s leading military newspaper, used a front-page editorial to accuse the US of sowing chaos in countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq.

“Cast-iron facts show that time and again the United States recklessly uses force and starts wars, stirring things up where once there was stability, causing the bitterest of harm to those countries directly involved,” the newspaper said, according to Reuters.

But the Obama administration is not backing down.

In fact, CNN is reporting that the decision has already been made to send even more patrols cruising by the disputed islands.

What do you think that will do to our delicate relationship with China?

Most Americans assume that an actual shooting war between the United States and China is not even within the realm of possibility, but many of our leaders see things very differently. For instance, just check out what CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell thinks

The current posturing in the area has led to heightened tensions between the world’s preeminent military powers, and in May Former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell told CNN that the confrontation indicates there is “absolutely” a risk of the U.S. and China going to war sometime in the future.

And Barack Obama’s good buddy George Soros has warned that the threat of a third world war involving the United States and China is very real

Earlier this year, billionaire investor George Soros also cautioned that the ruling Communist Party may see fit to rally its population around an external threat in order to head off a societal collapse in the aftermath of an economic implosion.

“There is a real danger that China will align itself with Russia politically and militarily, and then the threat of third world war becomes real,” said Soros.

Needless to say, if our relationship with China breaks down that is going to be really, really bad for the global economy. China accounts for more global trade than anyone else in the world, and the U.S. is number two.

And already we are witnessing a slowdown in global trade which is more than just a little bit alarming. So far in 2015 total global trade is down 8.4 percent, U.S. exports are down 11 percent, and Chinese imports during the month of September were down a whopping 20.4 percent from a year earlier.

So what do you think that an actual shooting war between the two great economic superpowers would do?

Meanwhile, the Obama administration continues to move toward sparking World War III in the Middle East as well. On Tuesday, we learned that Obama has authorized “direct action on the ground” in Iraq and in Syria. That means that our boys and girls could potentially end up in combat in areas inside Syria where the Russians are currently conducting operations. The following comes from NBC News

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Tuesday that the U.S. will begin “direct action on the ground” against ISIS forces in Iraq and Syria, aiming to intensify pressure on the militants as progress against them remains elusive.

“We won’t hold back from supporting capable partners in opportunistic attacks against ISIL, or conducting such missions directly whether by strikes from the air or direct action on the ground,” Carter said in testimony before the Senate Armed Services committee, using an alternative name for the militant group.

When pressed, Carter admitted that U.S. soldiers “will be in harm’s way, no question about it“.

Wasn’t Obama supposed to be the president that brought all of our troops home and ended all of the wars?

Instead, his arrogance just seems to grow by the day and he is threatening to plunge the entire planet into World War III.

So what do you think of Barack Obama’s recent “foreign policy decisions”?

Please feel free to share your perspective by posting a comment below…

  • J.L.W

    I was kind of prompted by your little question at the end there.

    I’ve been following Zerohedge and I loved his bit about how stupid the whole thing is. With US supporting Iran back Shiite militias in Iraq but when they go over the border, the ‘moderate’ groups the US is supporting are at war with those same Iranian militias.

    I also follow Benjamin Fulford and he is talking about elements of the US military having turned against the Cabal side of things and GENUINELY working to kill ISIS, and that they are having trouble convincing Iraq this is so, so with all the fanfare about killing ISIS recently. (And with the head of ISIS operations stepping down a few weeks ago, being replaced by this Dunford guy.)

    I’m surprised the US is doing it themselves when they would probably be better placed to have Israel, Turkey or Saudi Arabia kick it off. The South China seas? Well I don’t know. But I generally think the Chinese would win (bigger army and gold backed currency!). However, to the negative ET’s at the back of a lot of this really do very well from war.

    I think when it really comes down to it the US is losing, and these matters somewhat obscure the truth rather than reveal it. I cannot look at any country, or any part of this cabals plans that looks like it’s working.

    • kfr

      Funny that Soros said that the Chinese could be ready to cover up financial collapse. Ha! Maybe that’s what Obama is doing.

  • Mondobeyondo

    Obama backed down when it came to Syria and Iran, but he’s trying to make up for it by provoking a confrontation with China?! Ooohhh, now you’re playing for keeps. Remember, China has a bit of leverage in this game. Our massive debt, for one thing. And our trade imbalance. And our consumer-driven economy built on “made in China” trinkets. Not to mention Taiwan and other territorial issues.

    This president scares me.

  • tacoma

    You can count on the next global scale war to be initiated by the U.S.A.

    There are a number of reasons, all of which have little to do with the people of America but everything to do with those who control state powers.

    1. The U.S. became a super power after winning WW2 in the Pacific and western Europe. It has enjoyed such power since, 75 long years. Such enjoyment of massive power has created generations of people now in charge who believe their impunity is gift from god. This is why Americans is the most arrogant of people, calling themselves ‘exceptional’. Politicians therefore believe, since the U.S. gained superpower status from winning a global war, no other country will be allowed to challenge it without it winning a global war against the U.S. The rise of China, Russia or any other big states poses such a challenge and will be provoked by the U.S. military for war to see who is the next boss. About 100 million people will die of course in such a game. This is of little considerations for the neo-cons now in charge of foreign policy no matter who is the president. After all Obama got his Nobel Peace Prize and look at him trying to hit China the moment Chinese president Xi returned home after his state visit. A black president with the mind of white military imperialist.

    2. Due to stupid policies the U.S. has inflicted great harm to itself economically. But being the big hegemon saved the day. The Federal Reserve printed trillions of new currency to compensate for the economic loss and dared any foreign country take actions to hurt the dollar value. (Saddam tried, not accepting the USD for Iraq oil and see what happened – bombs overhead.) But even such monetary impunity has it’s limit and today has reached that limit. So what to do? Why start a war, or wars of course. It’s quite simple: Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan stated wars with the U.S., the result is to bail America out of its Great Depression. Well, do it again. This is why the Pentagon is hell bent on using Georgia and Ukraine to hit Russia. That didn’t quite work out. So now you see the Pentagon trying to create a Tonkin Gulf incident (which gave LBJ the excuse to start the Vietnam War) with the Chinese. The 7th Fleet admirals are really bored and desperate for war actions. The question is: How many Americans are willing to die for hegemonic glory of their politicians?

      Very well stated.

      ur mistaken, nazi germany declared war on europe.
      it took the sinking of US ” commercial” ships by germany for the US to enter the war.
      years after war had ravaged europe.

      • Michael Edwards

        Hitler declared war on the USA following the Japanese Empires attack on Pearl Harbor.

        • tacoma

          Correct. Hitler did so as part of the Germany-Italy-Japan ‘axis’ military cooperation treaty. Romania and Finland was also part of the axis.

          The U.S. and Great Britain supported Hitler during his military build up. The reason was the fear of communism…mainly the Bolsheviks.

      • Watchman

        Nick you should not confuse World War 1 with World War 2.

      • tacoma

        Nazi Germany DID NOT declare war on Europe – historical fact. Hitler sent a navy ship into a small sea port in Poland, which have always belonged to Germany but took away by the Versailles treaty as Poland demanded a prize for WW1 which it did not take part. He did it as part of his plan to nullify the treaty hated by all Germans. UK saw it coming and quickly signed a mutual defense agreement with Poland, in effect dared Hitler to do this small symbolic act, which he did. The next day UK declared war on Germany over this symbolic act. Hitler was shocked, saying how stupid UK was declaring war on such a tiny thing. The week after France declared war on Germany. As soon as this happened, Hitler said enough is enough and invaded Poland. The Europe part of WW2 was on. In a ironic twist, after the war UK ‘lost’ Poland to the USSR.

    • Jersey_Prophet

      A Tonkin moment? While we entered the Vietnam for VERY questionable reasons, a nation claiming sovereignty over a vast swath of international water is quite another thing. If the US does nothing, we have effectively told the world “The South China Sea belongs to China.”

      I’ll remind you the South China Sea is no more China’s than the Gulf of Mexico is Mexico’s. If Mexico suddenly built artificial Islands with airstrips and military barracks in the Gulf and claims that body of water is Mexico’s, would you find that quite acceptable, too?

          • tacoma

            China claims sovereignty within 15 km of the island it built. Not the entire S China Sea. Any country can claim sovereignty on land it created out of nothing over neutral territory. If the US built an island right in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico it can file a claim for 15 km around it. As Mexico can do same.

          • Jersey_Prophet

            You are wrong! It doesn’t matter what YOU think. China has NO claim. Submerged atolls are not considered islands – even after China dredged and filled them. READ the damn LOS, p. 9 pp3! Page 13 further amplifies this by stating, “(A)rtificial islands, installations and structures likewise do NOT generate any territorial, sea or other maritime zones.”

            China DOES claim sovereignty over not just the islands it created, but
            both the sea and air space over the entire so-called “Nine Dash Line.”
            No one recognizes this fantasy that was created out of whole cloth in
            the mid 20th century. It goes totally contrary to the Convention of the
            Law of the Sea which recognizes a 12 mile limit from a country’s low
            tide coastline.

            Whatever your allegiance matters not. China does not have the right to unilaterally claim territory, and if it so chooses, will pay a heavy price.

        Sovereign territory of any state is legally regulated by UN – both US and China are founding members. Under UN laws sovereignty is legit if there is long historical presence and a land either won by legal war or created out of nothing. China did just that. China has claimed most of the South China Sea islands as their since the 1500’s. In fact use some of them as navy ports for their ships trading with Vietnam and Philippines.

        The UN has full authority to grant legal sovereignty. Not the US, or any other country.

        • Jersey_Prophet

          Where do you get your absurd taking points? National sovereignty existed before there was a UN. They are not the arbiters of China’s absurd claims. If the UN had power over sovereignty, the General Assembly – dominated in number by a gaggle of tinpot dictatorial nations would long ago have declared Israel and the US illegitimate nations.

          What ports are you talking about? These Pacific islands islands are uninhabited, mostly submerged at high tide. They are located in the open sea between Brunei on the Malaysian atoll, the Philippines and Vietnam.

          I never said the US has authority to grant sovereignty – any more than does China. And because China suddenly claims it has claimed these islands for 600 years doesn’t make a case for sovereignty. They have NO claim based on any invented history, any more than the Arabs claim that biblical Israel never existed and the Temple Mount is theirs.

          Unless challenged, this sudden fantasy claim of Chinese sovereignty over the Spratlys will morph into Chinese regulation of international commerce over shipping lanes used by many countries. It will not stand.

            Ah yes, you certainly do sound like a classic Neo-con of the American kind. Global dominance is your game. You’re not in power but there a lots of your kind running around in D.C. in power. They think and act like they run the world, classify friends and enemy, define good and bad, make Earth’s laws from the tip of a cruise missile, do war as they pleased. You are precisely the kind I referred to in my first post here. ‘It will not stand’ is your famous motto. Another one is “Your are with me or against me.” Your kind are the one who will start WW3 for real. But this big one will not be the same as the one in the Cold War with USSR. That one ended without a shot fired before the Neo-con’s time. This one, with China, Russia, even India on one side you will face what happened in Vietnam. Remember Vietnam? The McCarthy type who started that war ended up starting a civil war at home in 1968 and and epic defeat in 1973. 65,000 KIA GIs and 4 times that in casualties wondered what the heck they fought for. They fought for the glory and fun of a few in DC. I have a challenge for you: Vietnam unified for 40 years is today still very much Communist. Very friendly with all of its neighbors. But why don’t you call for an invasion of Vietnam to purge it of evil Communism? This time you can win with a few nukes. But watch out for those nukes flying over from Beijing. Let me assure you this Made in China things are not toys you can buy in Walmart.

          Nothing escapes me, least of all your cluelessness. The US does NOT ‘control’ the Gulf of Mexico. Past 12 miles from shore, it is international waters. Get informed before you spout off nonsense!

          The South China Sea is nowhere near China’s ‘backyard.’ Check your maps! If anything, it borders the Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei and Malaysia’s front yards. The waters China suddenly claims are also international waters and not subject to arbitrary, sudden claims of sovereignty.

      I can feel your hatred for this country coming through. Not sure if you meant to write it up that way or not, but it’s here. First you state this has little to do with the American people. Then you must believe that the votes were rigged and the American people had nothing to do with getting to where we are now, even though we had two cracks at it. (Elections)
      You’re snide about the term American exceptionalism, which leads me to believe that you believe in revisionist history.
      You also say the Nazis and Japanese started a war with us, which is true, and which is quite different than us starting a war with others. We had to defend ourselves in the early 40’s after Pearl Harbor, but truth be told, we should have been fully in that war long before, aiding our Allies against the ISIS of that day. But we weren’t due to the FDR love of the Nazis, or hatred of the Jews (take your pick)The Fords and other very influential families and corporations financially supporting the NAZIs, and quite frankly, our country starting a movement toward socialism (remember where the NAZIs came from). Truth be told, we should have stopped financial pentagon/CIA funding of ISIS years ago, and hammered them out of existence after they crucified the first Christian and beheaded the first little child in the MiddleEast 4 years ago. The American people have everything to do with what’s transpired over the last 8 years. We placed this mentally ill freak in the most powerful position in the world, and now we are sitting pacively in silence. Neither is good!

          I do realize that, that’s why I said we should have stopped funding them. You and I aren’t much different in our beliefs, I think you are using the term exceptionalism to apply to the wars of today. I was using it in a totally creative sense from years past when our pioneers in various fields were making breakthrough discoveries and advancing technology and quality of life routinely. We definitely set ourselves apart from the non-free world countries. Now things are slowed down in a pile of red tape and regulation.

        With all the lying, stealing, cheating and murdering this regime in power has committed you still really think our votes are counted honestly or accurately????

        All three branches of government are corrupt to the core as well as our voting system.

        All wars were initiated by false flags. All wars are bankers wars. — ALL OF THEM —

        Those illegal invaders coming up here – engineered herding (migration) of the masses, not to get “votes” but to coral (like cattle) a huge mass for extermination. America will be one of the ground zeros.

        The rich elite if you’ve been paying attention have been leaving the Northern Hemisphere and buying and building in the Southern Hemisphere.

        Why? Because the Southern and Northern ocean and air currents don’t mingle (radiation).

        Bush Jr. bought a 100,000 ranch in Paraguay which happens to sit on the largest underground fresh water source.

        Stand back, consider the big picture.

        This all has been planned for a very long time.

        “Order out of chaos.” The rest of your post is most insightful and correct except I still suspect our votes are not counted honestly.

        Again, these illegal invaders aren’t being allowed up here to “vote” that’s a side issue.

        Doesn’t anyone else see the massive HERDING going on. This “migration” has a purpose to it. Read the number one objective on the Georgia Guide Stones.

          I do agree with what you say, and the fact that party affiliation matters not. I guess the thing that irks me most about obama is how Devisive he is, and then the sad fact that we had so many repeat idiots who voted for him twice. And I’m sure as you say, some of the ballots were rigged, others were cooped by black panther groups, and I’m sure many non obama ballots just plain disappeared, like people are starting to do.

      If Obama is a whack job, then isn’t the Defense Department nutty too? They have been pressuring the administration to take this action in the South China Sea and so have some members of Congress ( notably Senator John McCain).

Freedom of the seas is essential and allowing China to claim territory just because can lead to conflict as well. Only the US Navy has the power to exert pressure. What people want is isolation and we have gone far beyond those days. Just the way things are. The US depends heavily on trade though our balance sheet is off and in China’s favor. China and Russia are taunting Obama and that is not a good thing. For my part I am far more concerned about Obama giving a massive blanket pardon to a million or more criminals the day before he leaves office. Not a thing can be done to stop it either. You watch.

    • Mike Smithy

      Interesting perspective. A Presidential pardon for a million convicts just before the election whom will overwhelmingly vote Democrat. When it comes to President Zero’s tactics, anything is possible.

    • tacoma

      The US is not the arbiter of international laws. It does not run the world, sit in the world court, pass judgements or approve everything in the world. There are legal bodies who do that. If the US, with a population of 330 million, send its military all over the world to police it, the lives of the other 7000 million people, there will be WW3.

          you mean lust for power

          • robert

            Everyone lusts after something. Might as well be power. Power makes stuff happen. Ask people who have no power. Everyone wants it or at least to be heard even commenting on a blog.

          • Lennie Pike

            There are two types of power in the universe, and there are only two types. One is incredibly stronger than the other. Many people with the weaker type mistakenly think that those with the stronger type have no power. There are countless examples throughout history of this Truth.

        I do not pretend to be concerned about morality in regards to what the US does or does not do regarding foreign issues. I take the Roman view of things which is keep the legions strong and when needed hammer down the problem. I have an issue with our rules of engagement which prevents killing what needs to be killed. If we indeed control the GM, then I am happy about that. I remain chagrined that we gave up the Panama Canal. I have no problem with waterboarding the right people to elicit information. I do not believe you can pick up a piece of fecal material by the clean end. The real world is harsh, ugly and that is the world we live in. Europe has had peach since WW II because of the US presence there. European friends tell me they hate the idea of there never being a US military presence there. They know what will happen. While I respect your positions and views, I am inclined to disagree on occasion. Rome lasted as long as it did because of their military. Some say the US is an empire. I do not agree but if we are, then we need to maintain the legions else someone else will take our place and that is not a good thing. And yes, I have served. Drafted Vietnam. Bless my neighbor’s hearts.

          wow, so much BS so little time.

          • robert

            On the contrary, it is very effective. As for barbarians you get to define that for yourself. I was forced by my neighbors and fellow citizens to serve. That great liberal Hubert Humphrey called it a “dandy little war”. It broke LBJ that liberal from Texas so it wasn’t all bad. I used to think a bit like you but then reality showed up and I no longer care. I have to live in this nation and thus I want it to have the biggest, baddest legions ready and able to kill whatever threat is out there. I have found in my over 7 decades that all humans are barbarians at some level. Even if you believe abortion is ok even barbarians ought to cringe at selling body parts. I’d say the nation is pretty darn barbaric.

          • Gay Veteran

            hey Einstein, we hung Japanese soldiers for water boarding POWs.

            “…The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy.

            I must confess I “enjoy” your vituperative comments and replies to various commenters on this blog. You provide entertainment value which is a good thing in a dark environment. But,you might consider that you have set yourself up as the sole arbiter of truth and morality. But no, I do not worry or concern myself with the world’s woes and ills. The American “empire” may fall due to its own decision to pull back and draw down the power of its military. A power vacuum will be filled. It can get worse. If Michael is right, it will get much worse.

            sole arbiter? no, the Golden Rule is part of many religions.

            you want empire, then YOU go fight for it, and if you can’t go then send all your money to pay for our endless wars.

            and I guess you haven’t noticed how our infrastructure is rotting. gee, wonder why? can’t be because we spent $TRILLIONS just in Iraq, eh

          • robert

            GV, of course you are judging the ideas and morality of others. Your attacks and name calling hardly reflect a golden rule person who has an idea to share but shellacs others who have a different view. You are the resident bully here but as I said, you are at least entertaining. Reality is though, “the one with the gold makes the rules.” Such is life. As for fighting for the “empire”, done that, got the t-shirt etc. Loved it. Vietnam was good for me and to me. This country has been good for me though admittedly the several generations behind me are not doing nearly as well. Infrastructure where I live does ok. I think it varies by state. Love Florida bridges where you can fish from those. You are correct about spending so much on two country wars that should not even be countries. Bit of a waste there. Hardly an empire when you do not keep what you fought for. The Israeli folks understand that. No kumbaya here though.

          yet more proof you support war crimes

          “…Europe has had peach since WW II because of the US presence there….”

          NATO now enables our wars of aggression in Iraq, Syria, etc.

          I agree with Gerald Celente:
          (1) bring the troops home

    This article makes it sound like China is some kind of untouchable force, that it can’t be dealt with, the fact is it is China that’s forcing the US hand by militarizing international waters, claiming it belongs to them when the world knows it doesn’t.

        • Lennie Pike

          WW3 is not going to begin by a war between the U.S and China. I had suspected WW3 had already begun with this seven countries in seven years or whatever, but today I’m sure it did with the announcement that U.S. Special Forces ground troops will be deployed inside Syria with many more regular troops needed soon, with no timeline for it to end other than ” the U.S. Military will be there for a very long time.”

          Sounds more like the beginning of Armageddon than WW3.

          One of the reasons given by the propagandists on all of the T.V. news networks was that without ground troops ISIS can not be defeated – not by airstrikes alone. What did Russia just accomplish then? They have proven time and time again that they can only lie.

          Got to get Assad out of there, he’s killing too many of his own people and causing them to flee to Europe.

          Gadhafi was loved by most Libyans and they had a more democratic, peaceful, content, and economically thriving population than we do – and “”we” murdered him and left Libya in shambles – stole his gold also – research it.

          The NDAA also made it legal to stream police state military complex NWO propaganda 24/7 – and it is obvious they are. No truth in the media – one can tell by the constant contradictions if by nothing else.

          One CNN story had six photos of six different “terrorists” along with their different names lined up side by side. The only problem was all of the photos were of the same person, and I’m pretty sure they had claimed this guy had been killed several times before. It must be a test of the gullibility of the American People to know how far they can go next time.

          There’s not much further they can go than to force the beginning of Armageddon. We will know who the forces of “evil” were by who remains victor. All I know is that self proclaimed satan worshipers are the puppet masters of the U.S.A. that and are attempting to take the entire planet.

          • jack nichols

            Lennie I had a friend that counted cards using his feet to keep track of the Aces. He was good at it and made some good money but never enough to retire. The casinos caught on to him through his betting pattern $ 5.00…5.00…5.00, 500.00 500.00. Once he was made through their face recognition program he was asked by name to leave the moment he entered a casino. Disguise could never out smart the eyes in the sky. How did you avoid that and go on to win the several $million necessary to afford a comfortable retirement?

          • Lennie Pike

            Yeah you finally got me with that one. If I didn’t want to keep working, and I’ve already taken many very long breaks from working – I wouldn’t have what most consider a comfortable retirement – but to my wife and I it would be comfortable – at least everything we need, thanks to God.

            I was never detected or thrown out of a casino because I severely limited my play time, took breaks in playing lasting sometimes months so as to appear like a tourist, and employed a hit and run strategy and a good act.

            The easiest way to get barred is with a 1:100 bet spread – $5, $5, $5,……… $500 and consistently win. Occasionally changing up your minimum to 1:4 on a negative shoe, with your maximum no more than 10, can buy you a lot of time but backcounting a table that is drawing a lot of attention from spectators (or not) and making one or two very large bets and then leaving win or lose is even more difficult for casinos to detect especially if you returned (occasionally) to the same table (to try your luck again) and made a much smaller bet when the count was negative.

            There were many ways to deceive casino personnel – most of them had the same mentality – tough guys with huge egos – street wise know-it-alls. Satisfying their need to feel that way was my biggest advantage over them.

            Being allowed by the casinos to keep playing was almost as much work as becoming good enough to win consistently. Winning consistently required constant practice – kind of like a concert pianist has to practice, and becoming good enough to win required probably about the same amount of learning a concert pianist has to do.

            I quit playing in 1990 because that was when they changed the game making it unbeatable by stacking the decks. Back then they didn’t have facial recognition technology – they just took your picture a lot which worked pretty much the same for them – maybe just required a little more work for them so it doesn’t matter.

            Many people counted cards back then. Most of them consistently lost because they were not good enough or disciplined enough to be consistent winners. The casinos wanted those people to keep on playing and to ban the ones who consistently won. They never made up their minds whether I was a loser or a winner.

            I should not be talking about myself here but you asked so I answered in my usual long winded way.

            Maybe I am wrong, but I am starting to suspect you are Snot or similar.

            From now on I will not direct any of my comments to any other commentator unless I am sure I know who they are (hard to do these days) due to trolls infesting this site.

          • Lennie Pike

            I became suspicious because of “your friend who counted aces on his feet” – previously here I had mentioned that the counting system I used employed that, and I have never known of you to comment on this site previously. It could be that you had previously only read The ECB and never commented, and the odds are this is true. It’s just that the probabilities that you are Snot have recently gone up just like a constantly changing blackjack shoe due to my statement that I would ignore Him/Her/It and must be frothing at the mouth to deceive me into a reply.

            I think these trolls should be closely monitored and barred from The ECB.

            Also, I now remember that recently, and many times previously, I have made allusions (not illusions – Hard-on) to one of my favorite movies – One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest starring Jack Nicholson. Leave off the last two letters of your name, and there you go.

If I am on to something here, even though the odds are still that you are who you claim, then you have achieved your huge victory over me – the idiot you can manipulate at will. Just in case this is so, I will grant your wish for one last response to make you day:

            You fearful, pothead, control freak, atheist, emotionally and mentally damaged, progressive children can not perceive anything correctly – you have zero ability to perceive things through the prism of normal human emotions and believe that people who do perceive through that prism perceive everything incorrectly. It is true that a lot do, but those that do not, do perceive through that prism. I know first hand, and know there’s no way that sounds like the truth to you. It is though – it just doesn’t sound that way because you are being deceived. In reality it is you that are the haters and have zero chance of perceiving what is real. You have this point of view because of your drug induced confusion and/or rejection of God – and there’s only one way there.

            This biggest mistake possible is going to catch up with you and slam you down very hard very soon.

          • jack nichols

            I am a man, not a Snot, I Didn’t pillage your previous statement about using your feet to count that is the way my friend Dan actually counted. I ought to know I was with him as a distraction using my wit to distract the dealer and the pit boss. Please don’t reply because I have become bored you and your braggadocio. Signed Johnny Torrio?????

          • Lennie Pike

            This is for everyone else then: It is impossible that his friend Dan made some pretty good money counting cards in the era of facial recognition technology because it became impossible to make very good money if any at all during that era.

            Beginning around 1990, way before that era, was when casinos began stacking the decks through shuffling techniques and overly frequent deck changes and destroyed any mathematical advantage a card counter previously had. Stacking the decks caused the cards to remain in an order resulting in huge almost solid clumps of small value cards (2-8), and of high value cards (the rest).

            A card counter increases his bet size incrementally as the small cards are eliminated from the deck/decks because his advantage increases incrementally as the ratio of high value cards to low value cards increases. The main reason this is true is that with a deck consisting of a high ratio of low cards remaining, the Dealer will win much more often than the player because of the game’s rule that he must stand when he reaches 17 and not take another card. With a deck consisting of many more low value cards than high value ones, it is very likely the Dealer will NOT go over 21 and break – giving the win to the player. For instance – The Dealer has 16 (probably consisting of four or five small cards) and he must take another card. Guess what, it’s a 5 and not the 10 you thought it easily could have been – and you watch your huge bet raked of the table – if you’re foolish enough to be playing in the first place.

            When all of the high value cards come out of the deck, because there will be an abnormal amount come out just like the small ones since the cards are in clumps, they will do the player no good because there will be a lot of ties – nothing but 10 value cards coming out, causing many 20 to 20 ties.

            Like I said, when the decks of a shoe are shuffled at least half way randomly and are not intentionally stacked, as low value cards come out of the deck, the card counter increases his bet incrementally as he should assuming that the probability is that a natural clump of high cards are due to come out – but then they don’t because he is experiencing a huge artificial clump of low valued cards.

            I was only defending myself against Torrio who initiated my defense with a personal insulting attack – so what I defended myself with could easily have mistaken for “braggadocio” – wrong again! I must admit though my level of self confidence is high. You got to have it to be real good at anything difficult like golf, boxing, auto raceing – but especially 21- at least ………….back in those days.

            Like I said, this man’s probabilities of being a troll (probably paid government) had gone up – had to mention it with this infestation we have here.

            ps – Stay away from 21 – Stick to the Pass or Don’t Pass Line only on the craps table, probably the Don’t Pass is better because everyone plays the Pass Line giving the casinos an incentive to rig that game also (the dice) – it’s is where your rate of loss will be the slowest of anywhere else in the casino.

            The Nevada Casino Regulators are kind of like the CFTC and the SEC – big surprise.

          • Lennie Pike

            And no casino ever allowed a player to play a 1:100 bet spread for the time necessary to make some pretty good money. They nipped that in the bud real real quick even back then.

            Wow! I didn’t know the Federal Reserve had a 100 year mandate. So it is illegally operating right now with the cooperation of Congress.
            Mind you, the FRS is not only Jewish, as the Rockefellers are lifelong partners in destroying this country while they get rich. So in essence they are not just hurting gentiles as we are called, but Jews themselves.

          • Rowwdy Colt

            The Federal Reserve Act was 23 Dec 1913. Expired 23 Dec 2013. Signed by that old socialist Woody Wilson. He ultimately apologized to America for what he had done.

            Yes jsmith, congress is still pandering to them. They are literally afraid of them.

            Rockefellers are a little bit of a “Johnny Come Lately” to the party.

          The Jews are not the ones ruining our Country. Read the book: “Men Rule But GOD Overrules”. It is written by a Former Catholic who came out of the Catholic Church after many years of being a Catholic. When you have finished this book, you will know who is running America in the ground; And it is not the Jews, like everyone wants to say. The World today is just like it was in the days of Hitler. In the World’s opinion the Jews are the cause of every problem, which is a lie from the pit of Hell. I can’t help but wonder how anybody comes up with the idea that Jews run everything. Take Israel for instance, they own 0.6% of 1% of land in the Middle East. The Arabs and Muslims own the other 99+ percent; Yet the World says Israel should split their little 0.6% down the middle and give it to Terrorist who say over and over every day their intention is to kill every Jew. But, this is all predicted in GOD’s Holy Word that the whole world will turn on Israel in the “Last Days”. We are there and JESUS is coming soon. Praise GOD.

          Michael was WRONG about widespread summer rioting. Michael was WRONG about the Greek Deal. Michael was WRONG about a September stock market crash. Mike was WRONG about the official USA stand on Assad. and MIke is WRONG that the USA is trying to start a war with China.

            Usa stands against Assad regime thats why Obama fuhrer supported Isis….about the greek deal….they didnt have other solution beacuse the germans made them a ultimatum…..but that is a nuclear bomb that will explode and could do domino effect in others countries…just a question of time…..Really the USA dont want to start a war with China ????of course not….if the chinks would do everything what they want that will be more easy dont you think????You should get out of your coffin more times and see the world……but you must be a modern vampire because you already have internet in your castle…..Send my regards to Mr Dracula

    • FinalMythology

      No, it’s called freeing China from oppression and imposing our will on them. It looks like no one would change their mind on blocking out China. Worry more about Iran, that’s what the globalists want more than anything else cause it leads to perpetual war and more money for oil corporatists in share prices.

      • John Noyb

        Point well taken.

  • Vizar

    “So what do you think of Barack Obama’s recent “foreign policy decisions”?

    I think we are all scre*ed and we had best get the draft ready once again. Few are old enough to remember the sh&t of Vietnam.

    That said, China’s ridiculous “9 Mark” border in the South China Sea is pure BS given the geography. But, that is really Vitenam’s border issue, let them deal with it as they did us once. And the Philippines as well, though they will depend totally on the US, that is guaranteed.

    Real fun for people who have never been to war to pontificate about it. Actual war is hell, terrible hell. Never believe otherwise.

    • K2

      US is screwed by going a against a weaker power ?wow. Although china has a formidable size, its weaponry and power projections are not as advanced as the US.

      Micheal i dont understand this article, US is helping out its allies in SE asia just like it helps israel, whats wrong with it?. China is militarizing the spratly islands, that dont belong to it. And if US wont do anything about it, tomorrow china will do it even more with other islands.

      • K2

        US should always take care of its allies like israel and southeast asians countries.

          I agree with Gerald Celente:
          (1) bring the troops home
          (2) seal the borders
          (3) rebuild America.
          NO foreign entanglements!

            If i was an american and i was fit enough to qualify, i would do that. If you want to be the most powerful country in the world, if you want you dollar to be the reserve currency of the world you should be prepared to defend it.

            refer to my comment above. If going to war is psychopathy then every nation on earth including china is guilty of it. Why single out the US. China is neck deep in debt too.

          • Gay Veteran

            what war has China been in lately???

            and at least China spent most of their money on infrastructure

          • K2

            You are right they werent in a war lately, you know why? because they didnt need one. They just occupied inner mongolia, tibet and xingian , and now spratleys without a need for war.

          • Gay Veteran

            Tibet 1950
            Xingian for over a 100 years
            but you sound really concerned!

            Tibet 1950, xingian for over a100 years, so?

            as compared to the U.S. from just 2001: Afghanistan (STILL), Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, etc.

            So?

          • Gay Veteran

            hey Einstein, if you were an American you would know that the infrastructure of this country is rapidly approaching Third World status, it is falling apart while we spend $TRILLIONS on wars

            you have to have the expensive ships in the first place.

            People who are so concerned are doing it anyway. And people who arent, arent. Like i said, if my country decided to go to war over this and if they accept me i will.

            Now this part i agree, i only voiced my opinion, and your comments forced me to repeat it. But since i am not an american stressing it furthur doesnt make sense. But dont portray china or russia or any other country as a saint that is nicer than the US.

          • Gay Veteran

            Russia and China are less of a threat to world peace than the neo-con controlled DC

            what wars has China recently started?

            China? NO
            U.S.? YES

            who uses business to influence other countries? China

            Lol so what if china hasnt been in war in 30 years? or attacked anyone halfway across the globe, it doesnt make china nicer.
            China also uses trade to influcne african countries, north korea. It doesnt use war to influence because its not strong enough to do so.

          • Gay Veteran

            bash China all you want, but the FACT remains that it is the neo-con government in DC that starts wars of aggression

            heh, with the neo-con government in DC you don’t even have to go back 53 months!!!

          • K2

            Only because china hasnt been as militarily powerful as the US.

            Also if i advocated what you thought was war you say no foreign entanglements, if i dont…you call me a chicken hawk…you dont know how to win an argument using logical means.

            You have nothing to argue, hence you are repeating the same thing. And falsely accusing me of wanting americ in harm’s. China wont fire on american ships in the spratley’s. It wont. Its common sense to know that it wont, which you dont seem to have.

          • K2

            And that is why china wont launch a missile. And they are not (china or US) that desperate to start a world war.

          • CASTIEL

            wont lauch a missile……so they let their warships pass near their islands….and nothing happens…..is that what you believe???? you think if this recession dont end a war will start remember the great depression…..and what happened next?????you think if hitler had nuclear wepons he would not use them????

          • K2

            Well thats what happened didnt it? Warships passed by their islands and nothing happened.

          • CASTIEL

            You think they will sunk a warship just beacuse they passed at first time????? shut up kid

          • K2

            You really are imm*ture. They wont , thats what i have been saying.

            US and china wont go to war over these islands. Grow up! This is not a movie, this is the real world.

          Its not china’s business too. US has nothing to lose by sending those ships.

          • Gay Veteran

            are the “islands” closer to China or America?
            and nothing to lose? hey Einstein, we can start WWIII

          • K2

            Do those islands belong to china? Well anybody who is strong enough to start world war 3 can start world war 3, but that doesnt mean they will.

            I am not saying should start a war, iam saying the war wont start if the US sends ships, thats why they should.

          • CASTIEL

            You are naive because you defend the elites who are destroying the world and you are ready to fight for them?????have see how a war its like…have you shoot someone ????have you seen your comrades falling down…..???people like you deserves a slow death just for the stupidity you have….

          • K2

            You want US to be a super power, then you should be ready to defend that status. Without it the standard of living…in the states will be much lower.

            i dont want superpowers in this world…….and i dont defend elites pigs who ruined the world….i already said that

          • K2

            ‘You’ in my comment means the united states.

    • K2

      Having said the things below, I dont think a war will break out between china and US over this as the two are deeply linked through trade.

      • CASTIEL

        you really think that? if the US continue the pressure you think the chinks are going to continue to eat their rice and do nothing?

        • K2

          What choice do they have, if they fire, the US will fire back.

          This is why they didnt do anything despite warning they will do something.

          • Gay Veteran

            more like us sailing within 12 miles of these “islands” is not worth a war, and the Chinese will continue to build their “islands”
            impotent gesture by U.S.

          • K2

            SO let me get this straight, one one hand you imply US should send ships, and if they do you call it impotent.

          • K2

            I meant ‘shouldnt’

          • Gay Veteran

            jeez, you don’t read well do you.
            I oppose the U.S. empire sending ships

          • K2

            Then what gesture were you referring to when you said ‘impotent’?

          • Gay Veteran

            learn to read. I never said the neo-cons should send ships.
            now that they did it was a sign of impotence since China continues to do what they are doing

          • K2

            Its china that turned out to be the impotent one, they warned they will take action against US ships, but they did nothing

          • Gay Veteran

            not very bright, are you
            the U.S. sailed a ship to within 12 miles of the island and the Chinese keep on trucking

          • K2

            That was not meant to stop china from trucking, it was meant to enter into waters claimed by china as its waters. China warned if US enters into its waters it will shoot, US entered and china did nothing.

            Now trying to stop china from trucking now that may start a war. Not just entering their waters.

          • Gay Veteran

            a sign of impotence, America sends a ship and the Chinese keep on building (and I’m sure the Chinese knew the ship was there for signal intelligence reasons)

          • K2

            China didnt stop the US from doing what the US wanted to do. Not the case with the US though, they never intended to stop the building.

          • Gay Veteran

            then for the U.S. it was an exercise in futility while China continues to build.
            besides, NONE of your business, you FOREIGNER

          • K2

            ”besides, NONE of your business, you FOREIGNER”

            I am no longer advocating US send its ships. We are arguing about who is the impotent one. And china is…not the US. It was not an exercise in futility. US is trying to prove that a) it will be there for its allies b) It doesnt recognize chinese soverigniety over those islands.

          • Gay Veteran

            awww, you sould like a good little sheeple, buying into government lies

          • K2

            it’s the fact and the way of the times
            It’s moving emotion, it’s high and it’s low, no matter where you go

            There is something for all who
            look, there’s a story in every book

            All of the pages, between all the lines, so much that you can find

            [Chorus]
            But there’s too many empty lives my friend

            And we just can’t let them waste away

            For this life is a precious thing my friend

            And we just can’t wait another day

            There’s a message in every word,
            and it’s more than the word you heard
            It’s moving emotion, it comes like a sea,
            washing all over me

            For there’s nothing that we can’t do my friend,
            cause the spirit is with us all
            And it’s here and it’s now, it’s up and it’s down
            You can feel it surrounding us all.

            After all we’re all the same, only difference is a name and where we are
            In this crazy mixed up deal, there’s so much that you can feel
            Near and far it’s where you are

            And there’s times when I can’t contain all the feelings of love I’ll gain
            It’s there for the asking, it’s for all of you if you would take it too

    I’ll grant that Obama has done a lot of stupid things, even evil things, and if our own law makers were not also drinking the cool aid they would have already started impeachment. However, this is not one of them. Any administration would have challenged China in this. A republican administration *definitely* would have challenged China in this. What makes it additionally risky at this time is that we’ve seen China scoping out our homeland defenses in recent weeks.

      They could both act in tandem. It quite possible that if they act in a manner that is “ambiguous” then the US may either have to attack both, or neither! The short time to work out what is actually correct could be all they need to win.

  • VigilanteCaregiver

    Obama knows how to ruin a nation. And this is all intentional.

    He goes on an apology tour making his record that the US is the world’s villain. Those of his cult believe this epistle and spread it. Since there’s not enough in his cult following, the administration hires trolls.

    He throws Cloward and Piven’s ideals into 5th gear. Establishment folks get their payoffs to continue support (the establishment elites, which I finally found their info, are not loyal to the US nor are many citizens). America is torn down from the inside, the majority not of his narcissistic church to himself are punished, those of his cult are also punished (but grateful for it). Meanwhile, folks are harmed internationally by his ‘well-meaning intentions’ which were intended to cause harm regardless are blaming the US, not him.

    And this same dichotomy is occurring worldwide with other national and local leaders; in countless countries. They know very well these problems are manufactured by a small minority not really affiliated with American ideals or foundations. Yet, are going with the narrative. This is a concerted, intentional effort.

    Expect to see Gog anytime soon. I don’t think it’s Obama or Soros. There’s someone else to fill that role.

    Should the world allow China to build islands all over the China Sea, far away from China’s mainland? Since China claims ownership of the entire sea, all commerce going through there will controlled by China. Is this what we should allow?

    • Orac4Prez

      No, but they should start in the UN first.

    • Gay Veteran

      gee, those islands are a hell of a lot closer to China than America

  • coreyb

    Which country is powerful enough to confront China’s island creation project? None, except the US. The surrounding countries are too weak militarily to do anything against China. China will do whatever they want and make up their own rules.

    • Orac4Prez

      Hardly confronting. Once the island and its defenses are up, perhaps the Chinese will start firing a few warning shots over the bow of a few boats.

    • Gay Veteran

  • John Noyb

    Does anyone remember the missle launched from a sub 35 miles off the S. California coast about 5 yrs ago? The question of who it belonged to is still a mystery (to the public anyway). Due to the efflux trail (dirty smoke) it left there was a lot of discussion about it possibly being Chinese. How did they get in that close and what do you think the message was they were sending? Since 2000, the Chinese have been heavily investing in upgrading thier navy and air force – one could make the case they might be anxious to test them against the U.S. as they as well as Russia smell “blood in the water” with the increasing weakness and lack of resolve in foriegn policy that has been demonstarted by this administration. We are in a dangerous time with both the Chinese and Russians wanting to “flex” thier military prowess knowing there will be little “push back” from the U.S. Sending a missle frigate to the Spratly Islands is hardly a show of force.

    I think the Russians will discover the truth about the US’s supposed war against IS – its a fake. That is why all the US diplomats are running around talking about a peace plan. They even have asked Carter to help push this plan. The elites do not want the public to know what really has been going on in Syria for the past 4 years.

    • Orac4Prez

      They’ve known it was phoney since Afghanistan.

      • Watchman

        The Russians only began to wake up during the Libyan 2011 intervention. Prior to that they still had a hope of normalizing relations and closer EU ties. There are two conflicting theories on this and I am more inclined to believe Anatoliy Golitsyn on the long-term plan for Russia and the “Perestroika Deception”.

    Actually virtually all the countries in the area are building or have built islands in the Pacific. The Philippines, of course backed by the US has the most at 28 islands they have built.

    Didn’t our dictator in chief say about a year ago that we had no strategy at this time to fight ISIL? And that we would be evaluating options? He’s from the radical Islam ilk, so was just stalling until others around the globe took action (Russia). During this time he has directed an horrific strike against a Doctors Without Boarders facility to signal to the Russians and the world that “mistakes happen, our bad”. That means once we commit real troops, boots on the ground to this affair, our soldiers may mess up the orders again and shoot or bomb the wrong people (Russian Troops). And since he’s obama, King of the world, one with a Nobel Peace Prize I should mention, he gets a pass. Just another mistake, sorry, move along, nothing to see here folks, Dancing With The Stars is coming on soon, go back to your boob tubes zombies and free loaders…

    All a Kabuki show for a reason – to buy time so the sheeple will not revolt against D.C. I will say it again and again and again – China and the U.S. Government are allies. China has all of the manufacturing and Gold that used to be here and it was intentionally given to them by a very small number of traitors. Some of these traitors did this to enrich themselves with slave labor and an environment with very few regulations, and the other traitors – “our” representatives were ordered by their puppet masters to allow it so to have a one world satanic fascist government based on the present Chinese authoritarian police state. Thousands of Chinese lobbyists visit D.C. every year – the Supreme Court (yet more traitors) ruled that anyone in the world can bribe “our” “representatives.

    Control the fiat money – control absolutely everything!!!

    George Soros says China should own the NWO and they pretty much already do – seems like the U.S. would have already threatened them militarily by now if they were so concerned with China’s power – WHICH WAS VOLUNTARILY GIVEN TO THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    While this distraction was happening, the Secretary of Defense psychopath decided to put American Troops on the ground in Syria either present with Russian Troops on the ground if deployed, or to be attacked by Russian military aircraft. China as an enemy is a diversion. Has anyone notice that everything is a lie coming from D.C. – including that they were fighting Isis? All a fabrication – it’s what satan’s people do and are very good at. If you are not for Him, you are against Him, and as far as I know, Christians in China are still either killed or enslaved in prison camps. “We” already have like prison camps set up and ready in the U.S.

    Russia could be part of the show to, we will see.

    They still have to get our small firearms – a very difficult task without the total destruction of the U.S.

    The Defense Department forgets, to our peril, the following:

    Either there will be NO war or it will be the last.

    Michael…I’ve followed you since your inception and have always felt you had your finger in the pulse of what was happening financially in this country and in the world, as a whole. However, in this most recent piece, you’ve spoken about a man whom you called a “friend”, Rick Wiles, and that has caused me to shudder for a moment. Wiles has had and continues to claim some of the most outrageous “prophecies” ever spoken and exactly NONE of anything he has ever stated has come true. This man is a false prophet extraordinare and I find it somewhat unnerving to discover that you have anything to do with him. All one has to do is a tiny bit of research to realize just who this man really is and it is one who does all he can to seperate people from their money and their common sense. he has been proven wrong on so many supposed words from the Lord that many have stopped counting. He certainly does not deserve the respect or even the legitmate attention that any rational Christian has to offer. I’ll end my diatribe with a so-called “prophetic” message that he issued in 2010, word for word, that should emphatically call into question his connection with the Lord and what He is saying today:

    By May of 2010, Wiles was even more specific as to the nature of the upcoming disaster.

    My friends, we’re on the verge of a nuclear explosion in this country
    – the Lord told me at the beginning of this year, January 8, 2010. I
    came out of a fast and walked into this studio and told you what the
    Holy Spirit told me, and I’m standing by it. If I did not hear from God during that week of fasting, then I’ll never hear God. And I hope I’m wrong, I hope I hope I hope I’m wrong. With all my heart I hope I’m wrong. I hope I’m totally humiliated and never prophesy again, because I don’t want what I saw to come true. But what I heard the Holy Spirit tell me during that week of fasting at the beginning of this year, was that we had three months to seek Him in prayer and fasting, to seek His face and He would give us a plan. We would have 6 months to prepare and the last 3 months of 2010 – He said we will need His mercy to get through the last 3 months. I’m going to stand by it. Again, if I didn’t hear God, then I can’t hear God. If that wasn’t God speaking to me then I will never again as long as I live say that the Lord spoke to me. And I’m telling you tonight that everything is lining up towards a World War this year. One of the things the Holy Spirit told me in January was that many people will die in 2010, including many Christians. And He said ‘do not mourn or grieve the death of so many Christians. It is my mercy, I am taking them out of this world as tribulation starts’. The time of tribulation is near. We are in the time of sorrows. The earth is groaning. The signs are everywhere – wars and rumors of wars, pestilence and plagues, famines. The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back, and the Church isn’t ready. Arouse yourself and prepare yourself, for the Lord is coming. Arise and wait for Him. Be prepared and tell everyone you know. Jesus Christ is coming. Trunews broadcast 5-24-10

    By his own words above, “if I didn’t hear God, then I can’t hear God”, he is quite simply a false prophet and anyone who listens to anything he says should not be surprised at their duplicity when it occurs.

    Everything is about greed, personal greed that affects personal relationships, greed between families, greed between towns, greed between countries. What does the US do where they are not called? Must she be nosing everywhere? Doesn’t she feel well and happy just by herself? Must there always be fear of others taking action against her? Is it because she has caused so much suffering everywhere by her aggression, that she feels compelled to be at the defensive, not by defending herself, but by harassing other countries (the best defense is to attack)? The solution is easy, but requires a lot of will: change your beliefs, don’t belief what your parents, the system, your schools, your religion has told you since you where born. Hatress must be learned, says Nelson Mandela. You are born with the natural emotion of love, that is then transformed by the teachings of the adults as conditional (very important word for them) love, which is love no more. Our actions always bear consequences. I agree with those provoking a Third World War, that they would not like to accept this, they would like to just harm others, saying it is because of the obvious superiority in culture, war hardware, and what have you, and the Law of Life (false law, including darwinism) mandates that you strive to be superior. So, if you are superior (not like the nazis against the jews, of course, american racism against the ex black slaves and nowadays Furguson, etc., is “different”) you just impose that superiority on others, and nothing happens to you, as you are following the rules of nature. But if you accept it or not, what you do to others you do to yourself (Jesus saying somewhere “what you do to the smallest of my brethren you do to me is, of course, forgotten). America is doomed to fall, since George Bush declared war to terrorism (terrorism of everybody else, not himself, of course – ask the world out there, if they don’t feel terror of the US). Remember: What you do to others, you do to yourself, as a person, as a group, as a country. So, even people who are commenting here that a $400,000 dollar helm is cheap compared to a fighter plane, keep suggesting using borrowed money (the money the Fed is printingf out of thin air) to harm others, You feel in your comfort zone, but you went beyond the limits long, long time ago. And that bears consequences. Don’t make a mistake (a wording Obama and the politicians love). It is a petty that President John F. Kennedy was killed, because the elite didn’t want him to proceed with his good will. He said, seven days before his assasination: “There is a plot in this country to enslave every man, woman and child. Before I leave this high and noble office, I intend to expose this plot”. Now it is too late, of course, the US economy is centrally planned (something that was critisized about the Communist), the government is a dictatorship after Bush’s “Homeland Security” laws. Now there are FEMA detention centers all over the US to “indefinitely detain people for the suspicion of what they might do in the future”, and Obama has the necessary “executive orders” signed for all this. Yes Obama is mentally insane, as well as war criminal Bush and so many others. God bless America. I really hope for peace and undersatnding, for happiness and love, for real christian values on which America was build, and is the cause of her greatness, in the past, of course.

    If I were the Chinese I would put economic sanctions on the USA.
    Those sanctions would effectively cut all Chinese retail off.
    The entire thing is ridiculous on both sides of the fence.
    Let us see if either co-dependent country can survive without the other.
    Go into any store in this country and flip the label and see where it is made. Because from about 1971 on, we have been co-dependent on one another to feed our populations.
    China has in its possession a very large number of American Dollars that they have earned through very hard work. War would mean no one wins. Because those dollars would immediately be worthless paper. You cannot collect money from a dead man. And even if they are able to win a war with us, how do you collect?
    China used to have a season of starvation under the communist rule.
    Many died.
    Once they formed a trade partnership with us, almost no one died of starvation.
    The biggest threat to China is not us.
    The biggest threat to China is Russia. Followed by an economic threat from India taking over their economic feast with us.
    I do not see us as a threat to anyone.
    But the idea of deliberately provoking them? I think the man needs to be examined by a doctor to see if he is mentally competent to do the job. Which means Joe Biden better be prepared to take over that job if necessary.
    That might require a whole lot of decision making that Joe is unlikely to be able to do.

        Russia is encouraging China to go to war with the United States.
        There is a treaty between the two nations to allow Chinese Troops to travel by land across Russian Territory to get to Alaska.
        The deal is that if they go to war, Russia gets Alaska and China gets everything south of Alaska. Meaning that Canada becomes Chinese as well as the United States. In other words they divide the North American Continent between them.
        The logistics of such a situation do not make sense to me. They are planning this for sometime in the future.
        The plan is for several billion troops to do this by overwhelming any technology advantage we have by going overland. In other words human waves of troops willing to die enmass to get what they want, which is fertile land.
        If they do this in winter . . . I just do not see those troops being able to support themselves off the land.
        If they do this in summer . . . the entire strategy might work short term because both Alaska and Canada are thinly populated. And roads will provide material support from China.
        The only reason I give this credibility is that it is supposed to start with the sinking of an American Ship near Taiwan. Obviously China will then invade Taiwan and take it. Thus providing the excuse to start a war.
        I am well aware of the Russian influence in all the countries mentioned. They use chess like thinking in their war approach.
        The Chinese for centuries have used the approach of surrounding the enemy with troops, then consuming them. I believe their national military game is GO.
        The Russians use the technique of hiding a bishop behind a knight in the game. Often hiding everything behind a pawn. Then when it unravels in the game, the pawn, the knight, are sacrificed to give the bishop a clean shot at the opposing king. I am just saying that is the kind of thinking a Russian would come up with in a real war.
        China’s main blessing and curse is a huge over abundance of people.
        It is a blessing because they are quite capable of having the largest military in the world on paper. It is a curse because those people have to be fed. So wasting huge amounts of people in a war is a population reducing technique.
        It has not been used for a long time.
        The people are in a situation where they are dependent on the world to feed them.
        In return for which, China, is one of the greatest manufacturing countries producing goods and selling them dirt cheap all over the world.
        IF something disturbs that ability, then they have no choice except to go to war to reduce their population. And that is what I see happening, how about you?

So who is in charge in Washington is the next question to be asked?

  • A spartan woman

    Dear Americans,

    Obama isn’t mentally unstable. As a leader of U.S gets orders from those who REALLY RULE your country and the rest of the world as well.

    I think that U.S’s real problem is Russia and not China. All the conflict in Middle East is about oil and mainly about geostrategical power. Russia has changed that geostrategical status the minute she started
    air strikes against ISIS in Syria, sending a message to U.S that she wants to be the new “boss” in the region.

    U.S and Russia play “dirty” games. The question is when the WW3 will start and not if.

    • Gay Veteran

      “…I think that U.S’s real problem is Russia and not China….”

      then why the pivot to Asia?

  • Seen2013

    “What do you think that will do to our delicate relationship with China?”

    Chimerica has been heading for divorce for quite some time:
    1). The only reason they bough US debt is to leverage OPEC nations namely Saudi Arabia who exports most of its oil to China utilizing US debt.
    2). China also purchased the debt for the collateral. Most Americans forget other nations bomb nations who default, which was one of the justifications to the Monroe Doctrine as well as depriving foreign nations from acquiring a foothold within range of the US in particular Cuba that pivots at the US underbelly in the same exact fashion Syria, Israel, Iran, and Afghanistan pivot against Russia’s underbelly.
    3). China is Russo friendly and according to defectors are allied utilizing appearances of strife to give each experience.

    To put a fine point on it, Russo-US and Sino-US relations were largely lip service. Globalization modernized Russia and China enabling two of the best reverse engineering nations to modernize.

    “So what do you think that an actual shooting war between the two great economic superpowers would do?”

    1). North Korea invades South Korea. Estimates place US decimation in South Korea within 2 weeks maximum 7 days minimum.
    2). Russo-Sino bomb Japan and US forces stationed in Japan.
    3). China invades Taiwan. Destroying the US fleet.
    4). Russian aerial support aids ground movements of Indian-Pakistani-Sino forces into Afghanistan from the east (India now has a draft, and it positioned 50K on a transport hub capable of moving west more so than east or north as justified).
    5). Russia invades Western Ukraine, Latvia, and Lithuania. Bombs NATO warships of the Baltic launching tactical warheads against European NATO targets. (Without the Baltic presence, Russia has Lithuania and Latvia in a pincer maneuver).
    6). Syrian-Iranian supported by Russian aerial and ground forces counter pincer Afghanistan-Iraq pincer.
    7). Nuclear launch against Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and other OPEC nations. Before the Ukraine Civil War, Saudi Arabia threatened to unleash Chechynan terrorists, and Russia responded that Saudi Arabia could become a parking lot. Considering, OPEC is the main leverage of the world’s reserve currency on the Dollar; OPEC becomes the principle Nuclear Target. Kinda hard to justify buying US Treasuries when the nations who require it by treaty for US military protection went up in Mushroom clouds.
    8). Russo-Sino invades Alaska.
    9). Russo-Cuban forces invade Florida and Louisiana
    (Any conflict that utilizes conventional warfare will require invading Alaska, Florida, Louisiana, and if they can swing it invasion of New York.
    Alaska is the gateway from the northwest.
    Florida is the gateway from the southeast.
    New York is the gateway from the northeast.
    Louisiana is the entrance into the old river pilot system that Russia, China, and their allies actually still use while the US discontinued it and several historical societies seem to keep maintained, which is quite extensive. [Does Russia’s Arctic massing make a bit more sense to anyone?]).

    “Wasn’t Obama supposed to be the president that brought all of our troops home and ended all of the wars?”

    Yes, he also emphasized that Iraq was the wrong war, and Afghanistan should have been the priority that he’d end as soon as possible.

    “So what do you think of Barack Obama’s recent “foreign policy decisions”?”

    1). Strategic disasters.
    2). His policies like those before him including W. Bush was leveraged by OPEC and Arabian Alliance to route out OPEC rivals namely Israel, Syria, and Iran in the Middle East as well as cutting Russo-Sino involvement which is great to those who believe competition is a sin albeit sowed the seeds for another major war.
    3). According to Thomas Friedman, the eras of conquest and colonial eras were globalization 1.0 and 2.0, and today’s globalization of technology and globalized businesses are 3.0.

      • Seen2013

        “Russia and China have one thing in common: leave us alone!”

        I’m afraid not:
        First, Defectors have already blown the whistle on Russo-Sino strategic planning decades ago.
        Second, the US and NATO have largely contained USSR while attempting to do the same with China via South Korea, Japan, and the Asian Pivot, which is in point of fact is why Russia has no more than 10 naval, ground, and aerial bases outside its own territories to my memory off hand. China will have at least 1 or 2 finished between the end of 2015-2017.

        Now, I am compelled to agree with you that US interventionism even at the behest of the Arabian Alliance leveraging the US Dollar under OPEC Treaty is indeed placing Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Iran, Syria, North Korea, and several others on death’s ground.
        There’s 3 pivotal differences between now and World War I and World War II:
        1). The US is strongly dependent on deficit spending enabled by the US Dollar’s world’s reserve currency status. It’s actually loses capital and wealth to do this alone.
        2). The US has been much more aggressive than during either World Wars. The most the US was doing was aiding China with river pilots and maintaining the Monroe Doctrine keeping the actual battles further away. That’s not the case, if World War III breaks out, the war will be felt in the US itself. The US is actually creating capital flight over this, and it’s going to hurt it for decades to come.
        3). Russo-Sino have rather out-maneuvered the US in multiple fields. The US has to force a conflict that is short and decisive; otherwise, the nutrition advantage as well as numerical advantage is in Russo-Sino’s hands.
        It doesn’t help several military developments are also largely b/s waste that doesn’t work as advertised, and some have such apparent weaknesses that makes them only useful against insurgents, which has been the US focus for over 10 years…
        Stupid. Truly stupid.

          OR Russia is content with not being a global imperial power (unlike the U.S.)

          “…China will have at least 1 or 2 finished between the end of 2015-2017….”

          1 or 2?!?!?!? shocking

          “…The US has to force a conflict that is short and decisive….”

          • Seen2013

            I’ll simplify it:
            Russo-Sino-US and their allies are Big Government regimes. Big Government regimes require public-private partnerships or mergers to maintain its physical and diplomatic influences largely through aspiring or maintaining world’s reserve currency status that enables maintaining deficit spending to prevent Oligarchy (regulatory favorites), Kleptocracy (public-private partnerships), and/or Plutocracy (public-private mergers) from collapsing.
            To put it another way, Keynesian Economics and Globalization practically guarantee these two sides will eventually enter a conflict.

            No, Russia and China are not defensive simply because they want to be left alone.
            They both have maintained strategic plans dating back to Stalin and exposed by defectors. This is why Putin emphasized the Arctic among others.

            The US and its allies would have been better served maintaing defensive positioning like the Monroe Doctrine, which people these days ignore was derived by trade pacts after multiple defaulted on debt owed to European nations like Great Britain who bombed villages and cities of Venezuela…
            The Monroe Doctrine was designed to utilize the geographic choke-points to limit and maintain distance from balance of power geopolitics and extended alliance agreements…
            No need, the geographic choke-point is a natural bottle-neck enabling defense with less expensive costs…

          Russia and China do not need to attack us since we have already destroyed ourselves.

          from Paul Craig Roberts:

          “…The collapse of the Soviet Union was the worst thing that ever happened to the United States. The two main consequences of the Soviet collapse have been devastating. One consequence was the rise of the neoconservative hubris of US world hegemony, which has resulted in 14 years of wars that have cost $6 trillion. The other consequence was a change of mind in socialist India and communist China, large countries that responded to “the end of history” by opening their vast under-utilized labor forces to Western capital, which resulted in the American economic decline that this article describes, leaving a struggling economy to bear the enormous war debt.

          It is a reasonable conclusion that a social-political-economic system so incompetently run already is a Third World country.”

    One large suburb of L.A. next to Monrovia consists of 80% new arrivals from Mainland China. I was there recently – I thought I was in China – and they can’t drive worth a $h!t!!! Wonder if they’re required to hve drivers licenses? Where I live, for a long time, Central Americans were not required to have them. They could even drive drunk, cause terrible accidents and injuries, and be sent home scott-free. I know – I was called by the police many times to the scene to drive them home in my taxi while a dying sober American got driven to the E.R. in an ambulance!

    High end homes and mansions sell immediately to these Chinese with paper bags full of cash leaving their homeland behind – well actually what’s the difference? – U.S.A, China, pretty much all the same thing – same type of police state and most people of both countries profit from the same corporations. My sister put her very nice house on the market and it sold the next day for more than the asking price because several Chinese were bidding on it.

    She should have sold it for less to an American, but I guess it could have been a long long wait to find one with credit or a job.

    I bet banking and IRS regulations are different concerning all that cash for these poor immigrants. I don’t know if they just breeze through U.S. Customs with the cash, or just head down to the local Peoples Bank of China branch and make a withdrawal. I wonder if they have to give the bank advance notice if they’re going to withdrawal more than $3,000 cash?

    If relaxed regulations have been put in place for them (and that’s a small if) it would be because their ethnicity is needed to increase diversity. Actually that translates into – the more immigrants (or military members) the better so as to destroy American traditions – especially Christianity and freedom – the primary motives of the admitted satan worshipers at the very top of the NWO and Vatican. How many Chinese non-elite or non-military are allowed to leave China? The answer is NONE! How many of these people ARE Chinese military?

    Let’s start raising hell and take our country back. The Germans are doing just that as we speak. I do raise hell and have been arrested for it.

    That Ashole Carter lies when he says, “We won’t hold back from supporting capable partners in opportunistic attacks against ISIL”. Russia is more than capable and asked the US for help and got silence in return. The only reason for putting troops in Syria is to disrupt the Russian offensive on the CIA’s asset terrorist group.

    The above picture of Obama with his tongue out and his right eye open was disturbing to me because clearly it shows someone who is deeply disturbed as well as possessed and I mean possessed literally.

    Everyone sits around waiting for the other shoe to drop doing absolutely nothing.

    I’ve been in contact with my state reps and THEY DON’T CARE. They have sold their souls for a cushy paycheck, medical and retirement package most Americans can’t even dream of, all for just nodding yes, smiling and voting exactly how they are told to vote.

    Obama thinks he is the madahi foretold in the Bible. He is insane and will usher in antichrist’s one new world order.

    “Order out of chaos”

    America has fallen and we let it fall. I hope I’m at ground zero, however more than ruining the land I suspect we will have a EMP which will disable all our high technology.

    Our enemies will sit back for awhile and watch us eat each other then move in.

    Short of divine intervention, 90% of us aren’t getting out of this alive. We allowed God to be taken out of our country, the family to be destroyed and replaced with weird sexual perversions that are tooted as being “cool” and we even turned a blind eye to our unborn being butchered and sold like meat……….America deserves to perish.

    You dance with the devil expect to get clobbered. satan never plays fair.

    • HeisKingofKings

      You nailed it. We have turned our back on GOD, and this is what we get. I called my local State rep, Congress and Senators, I received the same, An attitude of indifference from both Congress and Senate. My local State Rep., at least he acted like he cared. That is what his staff said anyway. What a flipping mess we are in.

    • Gay Veteran

      interesting, not a single word about our war of aggressions

  • Pale Writer

    Obama and his offshore Bank and George Soro’s funding is trying to get a fight going just about anywhere and with anyone. But that’s not going too well for him. China doesn’t even have anything against most of us Americans or America. China knows we don’t have any real wealth or true value of much of anyone and anything any longer in this country. So one only needs to ask this question seriously to themselves if they think Russia or China or really anyone in the world and their country,government and military……What does anyone really honestly truly have to gain for themselves and or their country by going to war against America and or the American people? ANSWER” Not a damn thing!

    That’s why war will never happen at least not while on Obama’s watch. Nobody that matters takes Obama seriously. And nobody who really matters will do whatever Obama orders. And nobody in positions of power bought off by funny money has anything but contempt,disdain and utter disgust for Obama and his continuous lose lose policies.

    So anybody with any common sense to them knows. That there are some things worth going to war for. And the are many more reasons and things why you don’t go to war. A petulant,rebellious child in the White House is not one of the good reasons for anyone on the planet to go to war against him of this whole entire American nation.

    What would need to happen for war is a good enough reason. And Obama has long been out of reason,excuses,causes and effects that have ALL backfired on him and his ENTIRE regime!

    Do you really want to know how to destroy a people and nation? You empower it. You love it. You care for it. You prosper it. And then if it doesn’t rot out at the core because typical human heart weakness and decadence? Then at least there would be something of real value in that country to war for in hopes to gain. But here in America since the at least the last three decades have been mostly all deindustrializing,shipping the jobs overseas due to high government regulation and bankrupting businesses by deliberate intentional Cloward and Pivon divide and conquer. So now there’s basically nothing left functioning inside America but a skeleton crew.

    So what does anyone have to gain by taking out any countries last vestige of skeleton crew? In the case of America where most of those Americans bones don’t even have real good form of calcium in them. The attacking country doesn’t even have to gain the calcium out of the bones of that countries skeleton crew so to speak.

    Folks that want to kick off civil wars and world wars ALWAYS want to slant the table of advantage to them IMMENSELY! That also means that they want their cake and they want to eat it too. And that simply is no longer possible for any of them.

    There’s a saying. “You can’t get blood from a stone.” Likewise. None can take anything from anyone or their country if it’s already been taken and even sold out upon. There is both what is obvious. Like QE3 unlimited and the there is also that which is of and the same with any and all of that which is not so obvious and is the Greater.

    So good luck with any of that Obama,China,offshore Banks or whosoever. Frankly even if you were all together as some huge international coalition of SWAT Teaming Armies against America and Americans none of you individually or all together could ever successfully pull off any war with American people now. Because even though most of us Americans and America do not truly deserve Creator Holy God interceding for any of our/their persons,places or things. We NOW do have HIM for Sure! Even as Hosea (God with Him) Still Unconditionally Loves his unfaithful whore wife (Gomer). So for the most part. America and the Americans are nothing much more then Gomer slut,whore prostitute worthless women who been Rode Hard and put away wet! There’s not much left of real value to her anymore but to keep doing some more of that same old same old screw job to her. Cuz now she doesn’t even feel any of it anymore. And for some Really REALLY strange REASON, Holy Creator God STILL wants to Love her. He wants to Heal her. And He would like to somehow teach her how to love Him back properly also.

    So whenever any person place or thing has all that with God Really Truly going for them? Then even if all of Hell itself. With all that within and about all HELL were to be unleashed against against that whore (Gomer) America/Americans? Then even all of HELL and all of Hell’s hosts and inhabitants past,present and future even all together wouldn’t be able to successfully come against Her to have any real true lasting victory over that almost completely worthless prostitute. Because God STILL Unconditionally Loves Her and that doesn’t have anything to do with common sense or even HIM getting anything back from her. In fact God is use to not getting a damn thing from her. But HE Loves her and is providing for her and is protecting her and is delivering her even if she doesn’t know it, recognize Him doing any of it or not. It never did stop God from being God if any didn’t consent or recognize Him doing it or give HIM credit for looking out for their well being,love and care. Sometimes God just does whatever HE wants because HE’s God.

    That is also when the Real and True One with Unlimited POWER and COMPLETE OMNIPOTENCE and OMNIPRESENCE verses the impostor one is clearest revealed to all.

      “…But here in America since for at least the last three decades that have been mostly all deindustrializing,shipping the jobs overseas due to high government regulation and bankrupting businesses by deliberate intentional Cloward and Pivon Divide and Conquer….”

      BS, greedy companies moved millions of American jobs overseas to take advantage of near slave labor conditions and NO environmental laws

      • Pale Writer

        And the Americans, The Evangelical church in America and the real true Light of the people all around the world all united together in utterly failing themselves and each other and their GOD in that process you just described! Now we will make the best of it. And if it doesn’t produce right results then it will be torn down and another even an American might have that chance to gain it back to their homeland.

        This much is true and I have learned from my life. There is not one thing that man or governments or even the false impostor god can do that GOD cannot undo,nullify,rectify,heal,correct or resurrect and even make new again!

        Revelation 21:5 “Then the One seated on the throne said, “Look! I am making everything
        new.” He also said, “Write, because these words are faithful and true.”

        1. So if humanity sets it’s course on LIGHT instead of just dwelling and doing business and government and war in darkness. 2. And if people of and with true conscious stand up,speak up,attempt to move up,grow up and insist on themselves nothing but walking “IN THE NEWNESS OF LIFE” even “making all things new again”? Then NOTHING can stop us. Not even GOD Himself because He WILL be in it and of it!!!

        Romans 6″4 HCSB last part of verse. …………………”so we too may walk in a new way of life.”

        We “may” walk in the new way of Life……IE…with LIGHT.

        But if WE do not? If We refuse not to? If we keep on insisting on all our old way of life in darkness and sleep and slumber and apathy and complacency of fools even without conscious? Then we will die. And we if we live that death then we will live a life of all dieing everyday and in EVERY WAY of all death through out all that thing we might call our life also.

        Reason isn’t always greed. Forced into bankruptcy or move abroad isn’t any actually any company,CEO or corporation ever actually having a choice. It’s a suck suck system. Even a suck or be sucked off of system. It doesn’t have to stay that way. Slaves MUST refuse to be treated like slaves! And people and companies MUST learn to NOT exploit,harm,defile and treat poorly it’s workers!

        1 Timothy 5:18 NLT “For the Scripture says, “You must not muzzle an ox to keep it from
        eating as it treads out the grain.” And in another place, “Those who
        work deserve their pay!”

        God is sometimes for a people even if they are not for Him exactly. That’s also saying God avenges the worker who doesn’t get his earned wages.

          • Pale Writer

            May the Love of our Lord Jesus Christ radiate into and out of your heart to reflect His Greatness,His Power,His Place and Person. So that HIS LIGHT with HIS Incredible UNDERSTANDING might Illuminate your own mind and body to propel any of that down (or up) a path of Life that brings honor and glory to our Lord Jesus Christ Creator GOD. And in that same process bring to you into a more deeply rooted sense of satisfaction,hope, purpose, fulfilling excitement and comprehension of the Limitless,Boundless Unconditional Love of God that HE has for you. So much that He desires to have relationship with you through His Son who died on the Cross to atone for your Sins. So that at least sometime in your conscience adult life you might fully mature onto at least the point in the sight of Holy Creator God to where you are forgiven of all your sins. So also that you then might not have any problem or coherency projection with anyone else (including from or to yourself) even on any subject matter as could relate to coherency challenges you alone must be having for some cognitive,spiritual,mental,biological,radio logical,pharmacological,physical and metaphysical reasons that all can be rooted and grounded in the power and loser person of Sin. Who alone causes confusion,chaos,divide and conquer with or without me or anyone writing coherently to any of it’s targets,victims or host.

            So you might want to try that? Or another website that might be alot closer to your own IQ level that you are able to resonate with in your own body,matrix, artificial reality or imagination. Because none of that with you currently matters here with Us. But your own Sin and your own SIN problem sure matters to the Holy Creator God who made you and breathed life into your human body so that you might do a whole lot more with it (and that thing you call life) then you ever could all on your own and even with all the rest of creation apart from the Creator who is Blessed and Holy and True forever and and ever.

    A couple weeks ago I awakened twice in the night with the visual image of a white sign with old black writing on it saying:
    THINGS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM.
    I am using that thought to screen everything I see and hear. There are motives and background workings that we know nothing about. the Globalists have an agenda and most of what goes on is pre planned by them. The president is only a mouthpiece/ puppet for them. As insane as the things he is doing, appear, don’t be fooled! It’s all part of the plan. While certain events are out of their contoll, the end result is all part of the New World Order they have been planning for many years.
    The only way they will not be successful is by Gods intervention. God may be allowing the things that are happening as a judgement for the turning of our backs on him.

    • sandman

      “The only way they will not be successful is by Gods intervention. God
      may be allowing the things that are happening as a judgement for the
      turning of our backs on him.”

      This is stupid and makes no sense at all. Please you trite and pathetic christians stop with all the god nonsense.

      Do you even know what this country has done to so many innocent people in our country and especially other countries generation after generation?

      The bad and murderous things your beloved country has done that you stupidly believe god was looking out for in the past.

      If god really was behind the USA with all the things it has done, then I would not want any part of that god, because that god is evil.

      • Lennie Pike

        What makes no sense to you?: That we will be judged by God for turning our backs on Him, or the that we have turned our backs on Him only and that there may be no judgement, or both?

        How can any of those options make no sense to you?

        If they make no sense to you, the only possible reason would be if you were not alive yet or present in the U.S. before we turned our backs on God.

        If that’s the case, it’s not a good enough excuse.

        • sandman

          Ahh Lennie you are one of those christian simpletons. The type of person that refuses to use logic and reasoning and common sense.

          No one has turned their backs on god. If anything your god has turned it’s back on you and your kind. Foolish half wit.

          Just today my fil said that he prayed and asked god to help him lose weight. And he did. I guess that is why bad things happen to other people because god is too busy helping his believers lose weight and find close parking spots at walmart.

          If the US is gods country then god is a very very bad thing. Wake up. Stop believing the false religious paradigm.

          • Lennie Pike

            Then let’s get rid of Family Guy, South Park, and Gangster Hip Hop, and bring back Leave It To Beaver, The Rifleman, and The Carpenters – actual music which has a melody and human emotions other than hate involved. Music does not even exist anymore – county music included. It does still exist in some foreign countries.

            Might as well get rid of abortion, and widespread drug use also -especially marijuana while we’re at it.

            The destruction of the family and sexual morality – soon people will be doing it out on the street like stray dogs in Brazil – that is if they’re not doing it with the actual stray dogs – and it will be legal – being critical of it will be illegal hate speech.

            Attacking other countries without first being attacked and killing millions of innocents would be another good one to put on the list.

            The U.S. is largely a lazy population of obese materialistic zombies with zero level of humility, empathy, or respect for others and if not alcoholics or potheads, on Prozac or some other mind altering substance – just like God wants us to be so that daily we can do something for His cause.

            “People will be only lovers of themselves and their money.” “Hardheaded and quick to anger”

            The problem must be that if you are of the age to know what the U.S. used to be like, that you just don’t know and have never known God because believe me, the U.S. has turned it’s back on God.

            You didn’t make yourself clear yet again: Do you consider all Christians to be simpletons, or only some of us?

          • Lennie Pike

            And there is a great article I could point you to written by a very good writer about the reasons why people use the word Paradigm. You will never use that word again if you read the article. Just let me know. It pertains to the simpleton’s attempt to sound otherwise.

            sandman: It just dawned on me that this whole thing could have just been due to your of Prepper Girl. I’m sure she meant that the American People have turned their backs on God, and you took it as meaning the U.S. Government – right?

            A huge portion of the American People have done a 180, the Government has remained pretty much the same evil entity it’s mostly always been especially since 1913. Governments are pretty much the same everywhere – they’re where satan’s people can get the most accomplished.

    In the book of Revelation, it describes a war with 200 million soldiers coming from the Kings of the East leading to 1/3 of the entire world population dying. Russia and China are unquestionably the Kings of the East, although North Korea & Iran could certainly be added in there *as they are both east of Jerusalem & have all threatened to nuke the United States. Moreover, in Revelation it says the river Euphrates will be dried up, there are currently a series of dams in the river Euphrates making this entirely possible. …In my opinion, this biblical prophecy may be unfolding in our lifetime.

    *Here are the two connecting passages from Revelation I may referencing:

    And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By
    these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the
    smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
    For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were
    like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.
    And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
    Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. (Revelation 9:13-21)

    And
    the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and
    the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east
    might be prepared. (Revelation 16:12)

      “In some ways, the process of emotional ‘education’ that goes on when we experience a piece of
      music is completed by the act of externalizing the music in some way, be it through ‘giving voice’ to the music within or through ‘moving with’ the music,
      either by bodily movements or singing or playing along…
      This outward act of participation or ‘externalisation’ helps to establish and consolidate ideas and
      beliefs in the individual’s consciousness…”

    Let us not believe for a minute that the actions of the worlds political leaders are their own but rather they are being Divinely gathered to the final confrontation with the Sovereign God and His legal claim to earth and all within it. All this marching to war Will culminate in the greatest tribulation the earth has ever seen.
    This system of human rule Is just about complete. The only prepping any one should be doing is realizing this most basic fact and aligning themselves with Gods’ Kingdom Rule in the hands of His son Jesus, for when the violent storm of Gods’ war at armageddon has cleared ,only those who have forsaken the notion of human rule and have put complete faith and trust in the God of Abraham,Isaac,and Jacob will be the only ones left standing on a cleansed earth.

    but the aftermath of events now might be a 7 year covenant of the many huh. Broken midway by the seating of an anti-christ.

    does the devil want a ‘all hail caesar’ event, and part of that entails the grand seating and declaring to be god by a man of sin so a good set up for an all hail event is masses worn down by hardships and wars beforehand, the world coming near the precipice and great fear…
    Then peace!, ah peace and safety, finally wars ended and a peace covenant signed by the many and up steps some man who’ll claim it all and claim to be God, and they’ll worship him, all whose names are not written in the Lambs book of life.

    they forget God and Christ, and peace? without the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ there will be no peace, instead the man they’ll hail and his seating and worship is the very abomination that brings desolation.

    jeremiah 17, cursed is the man who looks to man and forgets God..but blessed is he who trusts in the Lord, and there’s a reason that the Lord included in the new testament that Christ and the kingdom is not ‘of’ this world. How wonderful is the Lord, praise Him daily and if your names not written get it written in Christ’s book of life, He came that a sinner might have life forever in Him.

    Obama is just a puppet. It seems to me the US miltiary is no longer under the US government’s control.

  • Clyde

    Are you kidding me? China is building artificial islands within internationally recognized territories belonging to the Philippines. Obama certainly deserves criticism on certain issues, but here he’s more than justified to protect a staunch ally of the U.S. We ought to be protecting the Philippine’s strategic, internationally granted right to the Spratly reef areas. What poor journalism.

    If the book of Revelation was really pinned after A.D. 70, then it’s most disingenuous for John to have not referenced it.

    The Temple was still standing when John pinned the book.

    Here is the believers daily bread today….

    “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of his glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself” (Phil 3:20–21).

      • CASTIEL

        • K2

          Freedom to do what? Live a better life, a better life involves money mostly. Not just american soldiesr but every soldier fights for a cause that mostly involves money.

          • CASTIEL

          • K2

    • K2

      Ease up on the swear words, otherwise i will begin.

    First of all you made a mistake assuming that my criticism of the Rothschilds and other fiat money bankers was based on “the reason for my financial failures” and of “being a fool for blaming Jews for my shortcomings and inability to thrive.” I have never had any problem thriving financially – actually one could say I am better at thriving than these “Jews” you speak of because for many years I took their money from many Las Vegas Casinos as a Professional Blackjack Player (Card Counter) of which they were majority stockholders. I enjoyed the challenge more than the money. But I took enough of their money to last the rest of my life and sustain the non-materialistic lifestyle that I prefer. I would drive a taxi for free because it is what I enjoy doing. For me friendship and connecting with people, and having a positive effect on their lives in the countless ways imaginable is the only valid reason I know of for living – it is living. War making, killing innocent people, and crass materialism is not living.

    If it were not for Blackjack, I have proven that there are countless other ways that I could thrive, even become extremely wealthy if I wanted to be. And if I needed help (doubtful), you would be very surprised by the extremely financially and otherwise powerful people that would help if I asked.

    But why did you make that the issue without knowing? It has nothing to do with any of my claims even if it were true.

    Everything that you stated that is true I already knew.

    I am not going to pick apart every untruth you spoke, analyse it and prove you wrong with known facts unless you ask for it – remember I have played 21 for a living. You probably have no idea what type of analytical mind, focus, and b.s. detector one must have to be successful at that.

    I will just point out one huge contradiction you made and you can take it from there: ” These people are extremely smart, gifted money changers that have a significant part in creating the prosperity we live in today” but that depends on who “we” is and if this we would be better off financially (now and especially in the near future) using either gold and silver coin for money, or at the least INTEREST FREE MONEY CREATED UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF THEIR DULY ELECTED GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES AND NOT PRIVATE SATANIC FEDERAL RESERVE WAR CRIMINALS – who do nothing but bribe and own “our represetatives”. Your contradiction is that you followed that by stating that Jesus threw these money changers out of the temple.

    Jesus gave these people a certain name and said that they were not real Jews. It’s there in the Bible for you to look up. That’s where I get the info to form the opinion I have on what I said.

    God does hate evil – I have no problem hating evil.

    • jack nichols

      So how do you feel about the Jews

      • Lennie Pike

        The actual real Jews? They’re God’s chosen people and I also have known many. I am very fond of them actually and my best friend (other than Jesus Christ) happens to be one. Thanks.

      • Lennie Pike

        I’m not trying to be insulting here and am not serious – but just to make another point cause nobody is perfect including myself of course – You’re not related to Johnny Torrio are you? Your picture looks a little similar, but it’s more the expression on your face. Please – no offense – that was a compliment. I place his type of gangster in an entirely different category than these people who are trying to completely take over the world. I’d bet Mr. Torrio was a Christian and doing the best he knew how and not an intentional devotee and follower of you know who.

  • Lazarovic

    Blatant political propaganda like this opinion piece discredits the often very good information found on this blog. If I were you, I’d avoid this kind of nonsense, It makes you look crazy and unstable.

    • df NJ

      Quoting the book of Revelation makes you look crazy and unstable too!

  • grumpyhillbilly

    It’s all about the BRICs. Obama’s masters have decreed that pesky organization needs to be destroyed. So fund some radical leftists in Brazil. Keep poking the Russian bear til it’s goes on the offensive ( like blowing up a passenger plane). Try to scare the Chinese, and their nu-dynastic dreams, with a decrepit, albeit rainbow, navy. (Cue the Village People’s “In the navy”.) Barry is just being obedient..

  • df NJ

    Does anyone really think the US military is under Obama’s control? The generals pretty much do whatever they want.

  • Ken Griffith

    Is it really Obama who is in charge?

  • K2

    I didnt say people fight only and only for money, i said money is involved too.

  • Io Midiland

    What will our planet become while governed by assholes and maniacs?
