We start this article with few quotes from the Bible (Revelation)
1. And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 
- And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
- And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
- And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
- And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
- And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
- And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
- And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
- Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
– Revelation 13, King James Bible
The Woman on the Beast
- And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
- With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
- So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
- And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
- And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
- And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

– Revelation 17, King James Bible
Is this prophetic quote related to our times???
– – –
We’ve now arrived at the tyranny of the body politic – snooping on the media – snooping on you and your organization by your friendly IRS agent – and fundamentally snooping around the Middle East figuring out which war to either stay out of or get involved in!
The other day Dene McGriff was down in San Diego talking to a native Chilean now living in the USA – the conversation was pleasant about Bible prophecy and then the biggie came up: Who do you think could be Mystery Babylon of the Last Days – What great commercial colossus from whence all the nations of the earth and her kings who trade with her are made wealthy?
Without hesitation, the Chilean said: That’d be the USA, no question! So, why is it that everyone else outside of the USA knows who Babylon on the Hudson is but Babylon on the Hudson?
We now arrive at the 10 Kings/10 Horns of the Revelation – talk about unraveling the Numbers of Revelation – well, times are a’changin’ (i.e. “changing”) and in case you’re wondering who this “club of 10″ might be – this will be an eye-opening article to read…a mysterious RF, actually the name is RAF (as in Royal Air Force) – who wishes to remain anonymous lest his cover is blown (mine is big time blown) wrote most of this piece, with my brevity at the end.
– – –
We find ourselves purposefully bogged down in Revelation 13 – somewhat mesmerized by the 10 horns and the 10 kings – let alone the accounts of the Dragon and that of the Beast from the Abyss.
I dare say that for many moons I’ve conjectured over these 10 Kings/10 Horns – pun intended insofar as our reflections concerning the four Blood Moons upcoming arising over Israel’s landscape and the potential for commencing the Seventieth Week of Daniel…although certain brethren find my possible conjecture naught but theatrical date setting – I, of course, deny any resemblance to one, Harold Camping – a man who in olden times would have been stoned for his false pronouncements – I, on the other hand, get away with mere conjectures and live to fight another day!
Well, that somehow brings us to the “10 Horns and 10 Kings” in both Daniel and the Revelation and their “whereabouts” at the “time of the end.”
Another View of the 10 Horns – 10 Kings
I purposefully have not specified the identity of these latter-day “ten kings.” Are they nations? Previous colonial powers? Nor of the “ten horns” – and, for that matter, nor of the “three” who shall be plucked out by the younger horn: Are the three horns plucked up – England, France and Spain who occupied the “land the rivers divide” – making room for the Little Horn, America? Suffice it to say, hereunder is a VERY REAL POSSIBILITY – more like a very real probability from RF, one of our Midwest “correspondents” who wishes to remain anonymous – and that’s O.K. – I’d like to remain as such as well – only problem is we’re such massive targets that such obscurity has long passed out of sight! I told Doug Shearer that I at least have the presence of mind NOT to let out my address! I’m not sure that’s absolutely trusting the Lord or using what’s left of my brain….now some remarks on the “10 Kings” by the mysterious one …with some comments of mine at the end….
There are two sections to this piece – rest assured, you will find this exceedingly insightful on the issue of the “10 Kings”….
Now, from R.F. …
The world has reached a new state of economic change. We are transitioning from “bail-outs” to “bail-ins” for “too big to fail banks”.
I believe we are witnessing those end-time events that will lead to unveiling of the ten horns spoken of in the book of Revelation. I believe the ten horns will emerge (by design) from the financial reengineering that we see playing out before us today. The ten horns are prophetically important because it is from among these that the AC will arise … displacing three in the process through some form of power struggle. These are “like” kings and will yield their power to the beast in a single hour. They are part of the end-time composite image used to describe both the dragon and the beast. They are an important part of the story.
Anyone who has studied the history of central banking knows whereof I speak. The world is changing quickly around us and it is the power elite (banksters) who are shaping what comes next. Remember, the central banks and the too big to fail banks are made up of the people. The board at the Fed is comprised of big banking elite. Should we be surprised that the Fed is giving $40B a month to the big banks? I think not.
A few days ago, I shared an article on Canada’s “Economic Action Plan 2013”—which is modeled on the “bail-in” policy we now see happening in Cyprus. Cypriot banks are claiming a new tax on deposits in excess of $100,000 Euros. This tax is excessive with reports ranging from 40%-80%. The important takeaway here is the “what” that is being taxed—it is the bank deposits of regular Cypriot citizens. The entities forcing these policies upon Cyprus include the IMF and the ECB.
That’s the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Remember, the IMF is the world’s central bank—it’s a super central bank. Central banks have the power to create money. The IMF is no different. It creates money in the form of SDR’s (Special Drawing Rights). The SDR’s are then acquired by nations. The IMF is a powerful central bank—it ranks #3 in global gold reserves behind the US and UK.
Back to Canada’s “Economic Action Plan 2013” … the architect of this plan is Mark Carney. Mark Carney will assume a new job in June—the British government has appointed him to become the head of the Bank of England. Think about that for a moment—this doesn’t bode well for the average British citizen. Mark Carney is the guy who created the “bail-in” legislation in Canada—what we see playing out in Cyprus now—the confiscation of the bank deposits that belong to regular people. He’s now going to head up the “Old Lady of Thread Needle Street”!
Wait, it gets better. The FSB (Financial Stability Board) is the regulatory agency behind these new “bail-in” policies. The FSB is chaired by—can you guess? That’s right, the governor of the Bank of Canada, Mark Carney. But guess what entity the FSB belongs to? The BIS (Bank of International Settlements) in Basel, Switzerland. You’ve heard me speak about the BIS before. The BIS is “the” bank. It’s the banker’s bank. It’s where the central banks—all of them—go to do their banking. It’s also where the G7 finance ministers meet regularly.
So what we see here is the IMF and the ECB working hand in hand with the FSB (an entity of the BIS) to CONFISCATE the money of regular citizens in Cyprus. Further, the Cyprus model has been adopted by Canada—and the chief architect of Canada’s “Economic Action Plan 2013” is now moving on the Bank of England—probably to accelerate the same policies – since the UK can’t seem to embrace the euro.
In the meantime, our own central bank (the FED) is putting more than $80 Billion a month into circulation as part of ongoing quantitative easing [aka, “inflating the dollar”]. The economic recovery in the US is non-existent (as evidenced by today’s paltry job numbers) despite what Wall Street would have you believe.
Remember—the US Stock Market is now controlled by international powers. And, of course, the FDIC is under attack.
There is a lot of mischief going on …
Professor Michel Chossudovsky says:
What is at stake is a process of “financial cleansing” whereby the “too big to fail banks” in Europe and North America (e.g. Citibank, JPMorgan-Chase, Goldman Sachs, et al ) displace and destroy lesser financial institutions, with a view to eventually taking over the entire “banking landscape.”
The underlying tendency at the national and global levels is towards the centralization and concentration of bank power, while leading to the dramatic slump of the real economy.
What this means is that the money confiscated from bank accounts would be used to meet the failed bank’s financial obligations. In return, the holders of the confiscated bank deposits would become stockholders in a failed financial institution on the verge of bankruptcy.
Bank savings would be transformed overnight into an elusive concept of capital ownership. The confiscation of savings would be adopted under the disguise of a bogus “compensation” in terms of equity.
The bailouts are “rescue packages” whereby the government allocates a significant portion of State revenues in favor of failed financial institutions. The money is channeled from the coffers of the State to the banking conglomerates.
In the US in 2008-2009, a total of $1.45 trillion was channeled to Wall Street financial institutions as part of the Bush and Obama rescue packages.
These bailouts were considered as a de facto government expenditure category. They required the implementation of austerity measures. Together with massive hikes in military expenditure, the bailouts were financed through drastic cuts in social programs including Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
In contrast to the Bailout, which is funded from the public purse, the “Bail-in” requires the (in-house) confiscation of bank deposits. The bail-ins are implemented without the use of public funds. The regulatory mechanism is established by the central bank.
At the outset of Obama’s first term in January 2009, a bank bailout of the order of $750 billion was announced by Obama, which was added on to the 700 billion dollar bailout money allocated by the outgoing Bush administration under the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP).
The total of both programs was a staggering 1.45 trillion dollars to be financed by the US Treasury. (It should be understood that the actual amount of cash financial “aid” to the banks was significantly larger than $1.45 trillion. In addition to this amount defense allocations to fund Obama’s war economy (FY 2010) was a staggering $739 billion. Namely the bank bailouts plus defense combined ($2189 billion) eat up almost the totality of the federal revenues which in FY 2010 amounted to $2381 billion.
What is occurring is that the bank bailouts are no longer functional. At the outset of Obama’s Second term, the coffers of the state are empty. The austerity measures have reached a deadlock.
The bank bail-ins are now being contemplated instead of the “bank bailouts”.
The lower and middle income groups which are invariably indebted will not be the main target. The appropriation of bank deposits would essentially target the upper middle and upper income groups which have significant bank deposits. The second target will be the bank accounts of small and medium sized firms.
This transition is part of the evolution of the global economic crisis and the impasse underlying the application of the austerity measures.
The purpose of the global financial actors is to wipe out competitors, consolidate and centralize bank power and exert an overriding control over the real economy, the institutions of government and the military.
Even if the bail-ins were to be regulated and applied selectively to a limited number of failing financial institutions, credit unions, etc., the announcement of a program of confiscation of deposits could potentially lead to a generalized “run on the banks”. In this context, no banking institution would be regarded as safe.
The application of Bail-in procedures involving deposit confiscation (even when applied locally or selectively) would create financial havoc. It would interrupt the payments process. Wages would no longer be paid. Purchasing power would collapse. Money for investment in plant and equipment would no longer be forthcoming. Small and medium sized businesses would be precipitated into bankruptcy.
The application of a Bail-In in the EU or North America would initiate a new phase of the global financial crisis, a deepening of the economic depression, a greater centralization of banking and finance, increased concentration of corporate power in the real economy to the detriment of regional and local level enterprises.
In turn, an entire global banking network characterized by electronic transactions (which govern deposits, withdrawals, etc), –not to mention money transactions on the stock and commodity markets– could potentially be the object of significant disruptions of a systemic nature.
The social consequences would be devastating. The real economy would plummet as a result of the collapse in the payments system.
The potential disruptions in the functioning of an integrated global monetary system could result in a renewed global economic meltdown as well as a drop off in international commodity trade.
“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Revelation 13:17).
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS & CLARIFICATIONS:
The Bernanke takeaway here is of utmost importance because it underscores the serious nature of what’s happened in Cyprus (the IMF has taken a very serious blow). Let me try to explain.
Bernanke has been leading the effort to put the proverbial lipstick on the pig that is the US economy – and this is one ugly pig! The US economy has remained tepid through multiple rounds of QE. Remember, trillions of dollars have been injected courtesy of the Fed. What is the one thing Bernanke has achieved in this? He has maintained the appearance of stability.
This is very important to understand. The appearance of stability creates “hope” and this is the only thing keeping the system from flying apart right now.
Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the IMF, just did terrible damage to Bernanke’s handiwork. The Troika (IMF, ECB and EC) decided to use Cyprus as a lab rat to test their newest central banking tool, “bail-ins”. This is unprecedented – up until now, the central banks have relied on bail-outs, they haven’t gone after depositors.
In the aftermath of Cyprus, we also know that the use of bail-ins has been on the drawing board for a while. Mark Carney is the Governor of the Bank of Canada. Carney is the architect of Canada’s “Economic Action Plan 2013″ – which explains how bail-ins will be used in Canada. Carney also chairs the FSB (Financial Stability Board) which is the regulatory agency providing bail-in consultations for various Western countries including the US. The BIS (Bank of International Settlements) in Basel, Switzerland has been the host for the high level multilateral talks. Remember, the BIS is where the Western central banks do their banking – it’s the central banker’s bank. Carney will change jobs in June. He has been appointed to head up the Bank of England. No doubt he will bring his bail-in expertise to bear at the Old Lady of Thread Needle Street. It’s also interesting to note that Carney cut his teeth as a senior executive at Goldman Sachs before becoming a central bankster.
The experiment in Cyprus has been an unprecedented disaster for the elite.
It has caused a bright spotlight to be shined on their shadowy world. It’s somewhat unclear to me but it appears that Lagarde’s calculus was off the mark when the IMF selected Cyprus to be their lab rat. Jim Sinclair indicates that it was the Cyprus bankers who messed up. Whatever the case, nobody took into account the KGB. Cyprus is Russia’s Cayman Isles (or was). When the Troika decided to tax deposits above $100,000 Euros in the Cypriot banks, apparently they didn’t consider what Putin’s KGB friends might have to say about it.
The Troika had similar plans for Spain and Italy. According to Sinclair, they thought they could administer bail-ins (and keep control of it) if they kept the percentages low (10% in the case of Cyprus). Their motivation, of course, was to limit central bank exposure (QE).
Of course now we know it all blew up in their face. By inadvertently drawing in the KGB they caught the attention of the entire globe. Every now and then, we get a peek behind the curtain!
Immediately after Cyprus imploded, Christine Lagarde’s flat was raided by the French police. She is being questioned for alleged crimes that occurred twenty years ago. Coincidence? I think not. The world now knows what happened in Cyprus. There was a run on the banks. The Troika has suffered a significant blow and their masters are not pleased. And if that isn’t enough, they stole lots of money from the KGB. Don’t these people watch James Bond?
The Western NWO (I am referring to the system of central banks) knows that it’s now going to be exceedingly difficult to implement its bail-in policies. The appearance of stability has been shaken.
You can bet old Ben Bernanke knows exactly what this means. As Sinclair said, Lagarde just wiped out everything he did. He knows now that the collapse is imminent and he doesn’t want to be left holding the bag when it all comes crashing down.
To that end, please note that financial advisor, Jim Sinclair, did NOT give us two years. After Cyprus, he issued a new warning to his subscribers. He advised them all to cash out immediately. He’s telling them to cash in their IRAs and 401Ks, pay the fee, pay the taxes, and get out.
It’s no secret that the central banks have been shorting gold for the past few months. This too has been done to create the appearance of stability. There is an excellent article on Global Research about this right now. Sinclair is saying this has now run its course and it’s time to buy gold again. He says it will go to $3500 minimum … probably more like $5000. He’s also predicting hyperinflation to hit this summer.
My question to you guys is this … if Sinclair and others are right … Hmmm … Then I would say the timing of these heightened tensions with North Korea are interesting. Especially since 10 year Japanese government bonds are now yielding only 0.525%! Have you noticed all the yen flooding into the PIGS? The contagion in Europe is spreading. The dollar is gasping.
Further Considerations by RF on the 10-horns & America’s Role as Babylon the Great:
My focus of late has been on the ten horns. I’m trying to discern from whence these will come. It’s a difficult task because they do not yet appear on the world stage. Nevertheless, viewing current world events through this lens is fascinating.
Babylon you say? Hmmm, do you mean Novus Ordo Seclorum? I read about that on the internet. NWO, that’s the Illuminati, right? Adam Weishaupt?
The Rothschild? The Fed? The American New World Order System? Wait a minute … what the heck is the NWO? Google it and good luck!
Right now, the world is split. Oh yes, its split big time and along financial fault lines. On the one hand we have what our contemporary Western leaders call the new world order. This is the NWO of Bretton Woods. It is a post WW II pro Western world order. On the other hand, we have the “newer” world order. These are the BRICs. I know, I know, two world orders? Honestly, isn’t one enough?
The BRICs include Brazil, Russia, India and China. Sometimes they include South Africa (BRICS) and sometimes they include Indonesia too (BRICSI). They represent the fastest growing economies … the economies of tomorrow. They see themselves as the future, and very recently they met to create their own world bank. The BRIC World Bank will be a lot like the West’s IMF & World Bank.
Make no mistake however, these are competing world orders – and all joking aside, you can’t have competing world orders on the same planet. The BRICs want to get rid of the dollar as a fiat currency. They want a currency that better represents their own financial interests – and something more stable than the dollar.
But wait … others have tried to throw off the yoke of the petro dollar in recent years. Let’s see, there was Saddam Hussein … hmmm, that didn’t go so well for him. Then there was Muammar Gadaffi … er, that didn’t go so well for him either. What about Dominick Strauss-Kahn? He was a former head of the IMF who was expected to become the President of France. He thought the euro could be used as an alternative to the dollar for buying Middle-Eastern oil. Hmmm, didn’t he have problems with his maid?
In November of 2011, Obama gave his Asia-pivot speech before the Australian Parliament. Since then, America has taken a tougher stand against China. Obama said, ”As a Pacific nation, the United States will play a larger and long-term role in shaping this region and its future…The United States is a Pacific power, and we are here to stay.”
In the Biden article that Doug shared today:
At a banking conference on Friday, Vice President Joe Biden called for the creation of a “new world order” with new financial institutions, updated global rules, a level playing field, and a prosperous China.
Note that this is a banking meeting (Ex-Im) so NWO talk is appropriate … but is he speaking about Bretton Woods?
He continued: “Because the global order is changing again, and the institutions of the world worked so well in the Post-World War II era for decades, they need to be strengthened, and some need to be changed.”
Clearly he’s not! Interesting? Biden has just told us the NWO created after WW II, the Bretton Woods system, is no longer relevant. We need something STRONGER. This is really important stuff Joe is sharing. The changing global order is code for the BRIC threat and our need to do something about it vis-à-vis Obama’s Asia-Pivot. By the way, is the Asia-Pivot anything like the old Potomac two-step?
So what’s going on in North Korea?
On Friday, WND published an article asking whether the Obama administration’s military build-up in the Pacific is part of the President’s so-called pivot-toward-Asia strategy, a move that could demonstrate the biggest shift in world power since World War II?
It is difficult for most seasoned observers to explain why Obama is suddenly responding to North Korean aggression when the White House did little in 2008 when North Korea refused to allow United Nations’ inspectors into its nuclear plants.
The Obama administration also took little action when North Korea in 2009 carried out at least two nuclear tests, one of which is believed to have been the cause of a magnitude 4.7 seismic event.
The White House did not allow the U.S. military any significant response when in 2010 North Korea torpedoed a South Korean navy ship, killing 46 sailors. North Korea then shelled a South Korean island with little U.S. reaction.
My friends, I think the Asia-Pivot has BRIC all over it!
As an aside, the new ship that’s mentioned at least twice in the article Doug shared is the USS Freedom. An old shipmate of mine (and my best man) is the Deputy Program Director for this new class of ship at Lockheed Martin.
Now, purportedly in response to aggressive action by North Korea’s new leader, the White House is sending to Singapore a new class of warship designed to fight in coastal waters.
The USS Freedom is an LCS (Littoral Combat Ship) meaning it’s designed to operate in the Littorals – i.e. close to shore. I spoke to my friend about a month ago just as the USS Freedom was finishing sea trials off the coast of Southern California. The Navy has plans to build 50 of these ships. They are extremely fast and agile. They are basically a torpedo boat on steroids. The LCS can be configured many different ways for different combat situations.
Time magazine says the “U.S. pivot toward Asia – and the potential for confrontation with China – became a little more real this week with the arrival of a new class of warship designed to fight in coastal waters.”
Back to the BRICs…
The U.S. military shift comes as the so-called BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – seek to create a monetary system to rival and even surpass the West.
While it received little U.S. media attention, last week at its fifth annual summit the BRICS group unveiled what it said was a new development bank aimed at breaking the monopoly held by Western-backed institutions.
The bank would use $50 billion of seed capital shared equally between Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa but would clearly be dominated by China.
Russian President Vladimir Putin gave support for the bank while India’s trade minister said BRICS will “have a defining influence on the global order of this century.”
Iran likes the idea…
Iran’s Press TV described the deal this way: “The BRICS bank will present an alternative solution to the Western-dominated global banking system comprised of the Bretton Woods institutions – the World Bank (WB) and International Monetary Fund (IMF).
“The new bank will provide a collective foreign exchange reserve and a fund for financing developmental projects in order to address the needs of emerging and poor economies.”
Challenging the US Fiat Currency…
Press TV reported, “BRICS members say the current global balance of power is unworkable, with institutions such as the WB, the IMF and the United Nations Security Council irrelevant in addressing matters concerning global economics.”
Under the deal, the two largest economies of the emerging power groups, China and Brazil, agreed to remove nearly half of their trade exchanges out of the U.S. dollar zone – a significant blow to the U.S. dollar.
Now, the big question is (and getting back to the question who is Babylon or can America be Babylon?) … what about all of this financial chaos in the EU? And what about Jim Sinclair’s predictions for hyperinflation in the US? Are the Western central banks (led by the Fed) in trouble? What about the IMF?
If this banking system fails, how can the West (USA) be Babylon? Might a different scenario play out? Might the Fed implode creating a situation where the IMF takes over?
I don’t know!! But one thing is certain. American is becoming increasingly more aggressive and imperialistic.
We are fomenting a war in Syria, exiting Afghanistan, occupying Iraq, holding on Iran, ready to start a new war with North Korea and reclaiming the Pacific Rim!
The answer I think is obvious, but I still don’t see those ten horns!!!
Latest Update from R.F.
There is an incredible amount of financial stress building globally. We all know this. Though the situation is murky, given all the players and changing alliances, I think we can discern some of what is happening if we simply look at the facts. We are very likely witnessing the end game. I believe the global economy is about to undergo a radical change. I also believe the ten horns will emerge from this process.
There are several important things to bear in mind …
First, we have witnessed a major schism on the global stage. This has to do with the West (Bretton Woods) and the emerging BRICs (namely Brazil, Russia, India and China) lead by China. With the recent formation of a new BRIC world bank, much of the world has put the dollar on notice. It is now an undeniable fact that a large part of the world is openly moving away from the dollar as the global fiat currency. The West will not willingly relinquish control of global trade to the east.
And this is precisely what we are seeing. Immediately after the BRICs announced the creation of a new world bank, BoJ (Japan’s central bank) initiated its own massive QE program. In Europe, where the IMF, ECB, EC has been implementing austerity in place of QE, we now see significant pressure being applied to ease money and start printing Euros en masse. So what we have here, seems to be a concerted effort, on behalf of leading Western powers, to strengthen the dollar by maintaining its exchange rate — at least in the West — despite the fact that the Fed is printing more than $1T a year with no end in sight.
Now lets consider gold. Over the course of the last two weeks, the price of gold on the COMEX has gone down even though there is grave uncertainty in the world regarding the dollar. Indeed since 2008 we’ve seen a run up on gold – which, of course, makes perfect sense because gold has always been the de-facto standard … ALWAYS. So why now the sudden drop in gold pricing? The experts tell us this is due to a very well orchestrated effort by the central planners. You see, this event too appears to be directly linked to the West’s intention to preserve the dollar as the globe’s fiat currency at all costs.
The games being played at the COMEX are somewhat unprecedented, though the experts point to events in the ’80′s as a comparison. There is, however, a major difference between what happened at the COMEX in the ’80′s compared to today — and that has everything to do with physical gold. What has the leading gold traders so up in arms (they are panicking) is the fact that it is becoming exceedingly difficult to take physical delivery of gold. Already wealthy gold owners are being turned away by Swiss banks when they go to take delivery on their gold. The banks are telling these people that they will be paid in cash instead. Where is the gold? Who has it?
I offer another data point to consider … in January of this year Deutsche Bundesbank (the central bank of Germany) tried to take physical delivery of its gold from the NY Fed. The Germans were turned away. They’ve been told they have to wait seven years! As we all know, a lot can happen in seven years!
Even Texas is trying to move its gold to its own repository in the state of Texas! A lot of people in lofty places seem to be placing their trust in gold rather than dollars.
So where is the gold, and just what is going on here? I think the central planners know the dollar is in trouble. Obviously the BRICs don’t trust the dollar, and the West is pulling every lever it can to keep the dollar afloat. At the end of the day, however, there is clearly great uncertainty amongst even the central planners. We know they are hoarding gold. Physical gold, not the paper garbage. People like Sinclair and Celente are predicting the demise of the COMEX as a result of what we see playing out now. When the COMEX crashes, due to all the worthless paper, the price of gold will sky rocket again. Sinclair is saying gold will jump to $3500. I’ve heard others say $5000. Those who own physical gold will realize unprecedented gains.
The formation of the ten horns represents a major “reorganization” of power under either a Western or Eastern power center (very likely brought about by some form of economic schism). I think we’d all agree that the West best fits prophecy.
I find it very interesting that Christine LaGarde (Managing Director of the IMF) is widely reported to be one of the two most powerful women leaders in Europe. The other is Angela Merkel. Merkel is, of course, a legitimate head of state. LaGarde is a banker. LaGarde now has greater stature than many European heads of state. Lets not forget that some European leaders have been put into office by the banks. We live in interesting times.
I offer one last data point that further underscores the lack of confidence. Bail-ins. Bail-ins are a wealth redistribution tool devised by the BIS (Bank of International Settlements) – the bank where the central banks go to bank. Bail-ins are supported by the G7.
This tool was recently used in Cypress, and it is ready to be used elsewhere. Bail-ins probably won’t be used in the too big to fail. Instead they will be used to destroy smaller banks and steal wealth just as was done in Cypress. The fact that this tool has been deployed globally by the BIS indicates that either those in the know don’t trust the current system, or that they willingly plan to bring down the system.
It’s difficult to say what will happen to the dollar with all that the central planners are doing to maintain control. Four things are very clear however …
- The ten horns must come to be.
- The central planners have the gold.
- The US government has purchased 2 trillion rounds of ammunition.
- Monetary systems require one thing … trust.
Doug Krieger’s Final Note:
I know that many of you wonder why we don’t spend more time on such matters of this magnitude – well, we are but a very small fish in an enormous pond. It is obvious to all, if you read any of our material, that we, as are a number of pundits – and our little “club” seems to be growing in number of late – contend that THE FINAL BABYLON – a book soon to be published by Doug Woodward – is clearly the final Commercial Empire of the Canaanites – the Ancient Phoenicians – the Punic Peoples who colonized the Mediterranean and advanced their commercial pursuits, as the Ships of Tarshish, to the uttermost reaches of the New World…for the Spaniards once were thoroughly colonized by these Ancient Canaanites/Punic Peoples…inexorably moving West (even their Visigoth past prepared them well for the journey). Furthermore, as can be easily ascertained in this and many of our articles, the West is the dominant “empire” which shall have the greatest of influences in the Middle East, and, in particular, Israel in the “latter days.”
The Bible’s clear about this prospect in reference to the Western Civilization found in Daniel 7-8 wherein on both the Four Horns (“younger/little horn”) who came out of the “Notable Horn” of Alexander the Great (Greco) and the Fourth Beast (along with his ten horns and the eleventh which plucked out three of the ten before coming forth) which has been the “continuation of Gentile World Power” in its relationship to Israel these past 2,000 years (primarily “Roman” in its orientation) – for most of the Jews in the Diaspora found their lot in the West; hence: GRECO-ROMAN MAN – Western Civilization.
That said – what of the West’s Cardinal, though “little-younger” Son: the United States of America? Obviously, during the past decade, with the supreme technologies for squeezing oil out of the immense oil-shale deposits in North America – especially in the USA – the uncontested POWER HOUSE – the Commercial Machine of the World – will be the uncontested Commercial Empire of these “ancient Canaanites!”
And, this is to say NOTHING of the gazillions of cubic feet of LNG (liquid natural gas) – which is simply overwhelming! We’ve got 300 Billion Barrels and a whole lot more just in Monterey Bay!
Oh, and that’s not counting gazillions throughout Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, the Dakotas and on and on and on and then going back in Oklahoma, Texas and through the USA’s old oil fields like in Ohio/PA – it’s endless and then there’s the Gulf and all the off-shore stuff in the Middle Atlantic States – it’s simply overwhelming to the tune of, says the illustrious Dene McGriff, upwards of 300 TRILLION Barrels and counting – the very idea of suggesting just 3 Trillion Barrels! I tell you folks, the Illuminati is lying! We’ve got so much of this stuff that it’s beyond belief – so absorbed in oil is Babylon the Great!
If you want to see how all the liars fight over how much oil is just in California alone – check out this site – it’s absolutely laughable!
Dene’s calculations are really not all that suspect. My own private research has concluded that with recent breakthroughs in fracking technology, America is poised to become the world’s foremost EXPORTER of oil within years – that means we don’t have to import anymore oil – of course, the LIARS will tell you otherwise – good grief, I might as well tell you how I really feel about this!
I’m getting to be somewhat like Paul in these matters: “I said in my haste that all environmentalist wakkos are liars” – which of course, they aren’t, but when it comes to how much oil is down there, let alone coal and gas and the like, listen – if for one Texas minute you think that Babylon the Great will let a bunch of BRICSI nations (I included Indonesia in that mix.) tell us where to get off, you’ve got another thing comin’. That ain’t gonna happen G.I. – like NEVER! Take a gander at this map and you’ll see why the Merchants of the Earth shall on that day weep over her:
Now, this map doesn’t include ALASKA nor our Canadian and Mexican compatriots who understand “how the game is played” – so don’t tell me that Babylon the Great is not called Babylon the Great for no reason! Furthermore, this map shows NOTHING of the true Monterey Bay, California “play” of upwards of 300,000,000 billion barrels of oil and unlimited natural gas!
And, these maps are terribly outdated in that 2009 and 2011 is four or five years behind schedule and things have RADICALLY CHANGED in the fracking business since these publications were made. The gas fields are so extensive that if we wanted to, we could supply the whole earth with enough energy from gas alone to last a thousand years! Whatever you do – don’t light a match!
Likewise, all I’m showing you doesn’t even include existing oil (not oil-shale) – that’s just as dramatic and maybe more so – just can’t imagine – meanwhile the Russians have to drill through enough rock that atomic bombs might be more suitable in order to get to their so-called mass reserves in Siberia – fat chance that will EVER happen and neither India or China, or for that matter, South Africa, have any such potential – and Brazil has some but compared to Uncle Sam – there is absolutely no comparison!
The collaboration among the antagonists of Tyre, Babylon, Greece and Rome are united under the banner of the West and that dominance is none other than the United States of America – notwithstanding the childish efforts of the BRICs or any other bland effort sought after by other Gentile Powers. Ezekiel 38-39 is absolutely clear as to who are the antagonists confronting the efforts of Gog-Magog – i.e., the Islamic belligerents surrounding Israel vs. The Ships of Tarshish and the commercial powers of the Saudi Arabian Peninsula, partners of the West – OIL IS KING.
These are not all that strange bedfellows – viz., the Ancient Canaanites and their compatriots among Sheba and Dedan…for they have been trading partners for thousands of years…and, at the end of days they shall find common cause to refute the aspirations of even their Moslem brothers (Gog-Magog) – even so, as “rumors from the East and North will trouble him” – therefore, he – the Antichrist – will arise and annihilate many – Daniel 11:40-44…don’t think that the BRICs will get away with it much longer…but “he will come to his end and no one will help him” (Daniel 11:45).
One further comment – don’t think that the Israelis are not way ahead of the curve on this oil and gas business – they’ve got plenty and I mean PLENTY. Don’t let a few bogus “gas ventures” detour you from thinking that Israel doesn’t know how to work an oil patch – to the contrary – Europe better reconsider their little relationship with Israel and real soon!
