The rest of the world goes West when America prints more money

Last Wednesday was a hinge point in history. The United States decided to drop all pretence of being interested in leading – or even being part of – a coordinated global policy response to the most serious economic crisis in more than 70 years.

The White House, where some tough economic decisions have to be made By Liam Halligan America is now isolated and the rest of the world is furious. The widespread use of capital controls and even a lurch into 1930s-style protectionism are both far more likely than just a few days ago.

The Federal Reserve’s words may have been anodyne. “We will adjust the programme as needed to best foster maximum employment and price stability,” said the US central bank’s Open Market Committee. But by announcing another round of “quantitative easing”, America is rightfully incurring the wrath not only of the emerging giants of the East, but the eurozone too.

Muslims chant Death to America and Israel during Hajj Pilgrimage

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu Follow Israel news on and .

Tens of thousands of Muslims chanted “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” at the annual Hajj pilgrimage, which the Ayatollah of Iran called “a symbol of spirituality.”

The Arab Ahlul Bayt News Agency reported, “The pilgrims chanted anti-US and anti-Zionist slogans during the ceremony, also attended by the Supreme Leader’s representative for Hajj affairs, Hojatoleslam Ali Qazi-Asgar.

“God is the Greatest”, “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” were among slogans chanted by the masses in unison as they gathered in the Desert of Arafat near Mecca, where more than 2 million Muslims have gathered.

The Almighty, Liberals and Liberty

In a recent column, New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow wrote: “It’s sometimes easy to lose sight of just how anomalous our (America’s) religiosity is in the world. A Gallup report issued on Tuesday underscored just how out of line we are.”
Given Blow’s leftwing politics and his point was that all rich countries except for the United States are secular and that all poor countries are religious, he was obviously not making this point in order to celebrate America’s “anomalous” religiosity.
He should have. America’s anomalous religiosity is very much worth celebrating — not because it leads to affluence, but because it is indispensible to liberty. Had Blow made a liberty chart rather than an affluence chart, he might have noted that the freest country in the world — for 234 years — the United States of America, has also been the most G0d-centered.
Yes, I know that the Islamic world has also been G0d-based and that it has not been free. But that is because Allah is not regarded as the source of liberty, as the America’s Judeo-Christian G0d has been, but as the object of submission (“Islam” means “submission”).
Since the inception of the United States (and, indeed, before it in colonial America), liberty, i.e., personal freedom, has been linked to G0d.
America was founded on the belief that G0d is the source of liberty. That is why the inscription on the Liberty Bell is from the Hebrew Bible (Leviticus 25): “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.”

Will the Hindenburg Omen be here in thirty days ?

I want you to know, first of all, everything that I say on the program, please do not take my word for it. Please look it up yourself. Look up all of this stuff. But please, try to go to the original sources.

The progressives have controlled the history books for so long, read their own words, read their own diaries. There’s plenty of books that people in the Wilson or the Roosevelt administration wrote themselves. They’ll tell you. They’ll tell you exactly what happened.

I said to you — it must be hundreds of times now — I hope all of this stuff is wrong. I do. If I’m right, you know, things aren’t good for me either. I have nothing to gain here. And really, quite honestly, I think I have more to lose, because if I am wrong, I’ll be so wildly discredited nobody will listen to me. We just have to see what happens on the other side.

I have nothing to gain and I have everything to lose. I shouldn’t say I have everything — I have nothing to gain. I do. I have a country to pass on to my children if I’m right.

My batting average is pretty good. It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty good

The Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the American government

The Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the U.S. government as part of the movement’s drive to promote holy war against the West, a report

So far, the government was said to have done nothing to stop the Brotherhood infiltration. The report by the Center for Security Policy cited the success of one Brotherhood operative in gaining access to the White House under both Democratic and Republican administrations. “Relying on Brotherhood operatives for ‘outreach to the Muslim community,’ let alone appointing them to influential government jobs, is a formula for disaster,” the report said. “It gives prominence and legitimacy to enemy agents engaged in covert and not-so-covert acts of sedition. It facilitates their penetration and influence over the intelligence, law enforcement and national and homeland security agencies responsible for discerning and defeating such threats.”

The U.S. is now facing Americanization of terror threa

“The U.S. is arguably now little different from Europe in terms of having a domestic terrorist problem involving immigrant and indigenous Muslims as well as converts to Islam.”
U.S. faces “Americanization” of terror threatNine years after the September 11 attacks, the United States faces a growing threat from home-grown insurgents and an “Americanization” of al Qaeda leadership, according to a report released on Friday.

Former heads of the 9/11 Commission that studied the 2001 attacks on New York and Washington presented the 43-page study, describing it as a wake-up call about the radicalization of Muslims in the United States and the changing strategy of al Qaeda and its allies.

“The threat that the U.S. is facing is different than it was nine years ago,” said the report, released by the Washington-based Bipartisan Policy Center.

Newt Gingrich on the Mosque

One of our biggest mistakes in the aftermath of 9/11 was naming our response to the attacks “the war on terror” instead of accurately identifying radical Islamists (and the underlying ideology of radical Islamism) as the target of our campaign. This mistake has led to endless confusion about the nature of the ideological and material threat facing the civilized world and the scale of the response that is appropriate.

Radical Islamism is more than simply a religious belief. It is a comprehensive political, economic, and religious movement that seeks to impose sharia—Islamic law—upon all aspects of global society.

Many Muslims see sharia as simply a reference point for their personal code of conduct. They recognize the distinction between their personal beliefs and the laws that govern all people of all faiths.

For the radical Islamist, however, this distinction does not exist. Radical Islamists see politics and religion as inseparable in a way it is difficult for Americans to understand. Radical Islamists assert sharia’s supremacy over the freely legislated laws and values of the countries they live in and see it as their sacred duty to achieve this totalitarian supremacy in practice.

The Trumpet Has Sounded

Today, August 28, 2010, may be another one of those amazing days that goes down in infamy. Months ago, Fox talk show host, Glenn Beck, began sounding a call to repentance and a gathering together of God’s people for the purpose of unity. Repeatedly he has said, “America, get on your knees and pray.” Then he began inviting us to join him for a day of miracles, a day of unity and oneness.

Today, we watched in awe as thousands upon thousands of Americans from every corner of the country joined together at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. for this occasion – of honoring our military and repenting of the way our country has drifted away from the things of God. There is no doubt that political pundits will discuss the event for the coming weeks and even months ahead and the effect, if any, it had on the political outcome of the November elections but they will have missed the point. This wasn’t about coming together for a political purpose. This was about coming together, some at great sacrifice, for a spiritual purpose. This was John and Jane Doe Citizen bringing their children across the country for the purpose of oneness – that same oneness we had nine years ago on September 12, 2001, when we were all Americans.

The timing was extraordinary. Talking heads of every channel weighed in on whether it was a demeaning of the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s, I Have A Dream speech, delivered at the same location. Beck was accused of racism, of sensationalism. His motives were questioned, discussed, dissected, analyzed and shredded. But they all missed the real significance of the day, which was the 18th of the Hebrew month of Elul.

Elul, which began on August 11 this year and will run through September 8, is the traditional Hebrew month of repentance, of return, according to Jewish tradition. It is a thirty day time frame of inner reflection, of righting wrongs done to others, of repenting and seeking the face of God before the Day of Judgment which occurs on Rosh HaShanah. Starting with the second day of Elul, the trumpet (shofar) is blown every day to awaken the sleeping spirit, those who are not awake to the things of God. It is a time of returning to the Creator and repenting from having walked away from Him.

At a time when our country is in the most serious period of political unrest, financial despair, and racial upheaval of our lifetime, we see a man used of God to cry out to America that we would humble ourselves, and pray and seek God’s face, and turn from our wicked ways, then He promises He will hear from heaven, and will forgive our sin and heal our land. Do we need healing? Oh yes. We have watched for months – even years – as our country has slid into a deeper abyss of non-belief, of debauchery, of thievery, of lying, of cheating and any other adjective we can think of. Crime is on a rise. Our borders are not secure. There is tremendous chaos and confusion in the land. Do we need to cry out? If ever, now is the time

How long can America fight off the dragon?

China overtakes Japan to become world’s number two economy #imag2 The Chinese march towards becoming the next global superpower passed another notable mark yesterday when it replaced Japan to become the world’s second biggest economy.

China’s growth – at about ten per cent per year – has been spectacular, its voracious appetite fuelling demand for resources, machinery and products from the developing world.

Analysts believe it is only a matter of time before it usurps the U.S. from top spot, with some predicting this could happen as soon as 2020. A Chinese worker waits for customers at a gold shop in Beijing earlier this month. Today China overtook Japan to become the world’s second biggest economy Japan, China’s top trading partner, has held the spot since 1968.

China’s ascent to second place emerged after growth figures were posted. The Japanese government revealed that the country’s GDP grew at an annualised rate of just 0.4 per cent in the second quarter, far below the 4.4 per cent growth seen in the first quarter, and the 2.3 per cent expected by economists.

Could a solar storm send us back to the Stone Age?

In 1859, a powerful solar storm burned telegraph wires all across Europe and America and electrified the skies. As the sun awakens from a period of dormancy, it’s worth remembering that a storm of that magnitude today could bring modernity to a sudden halt.

The 1859 Carrington Flare produced auroras that were visible as far south as Cuba. It also made telegraph systems go haywire.

The Great Solar Storm of 1859 is now known in history as ‘the Carrington flare’ that burned telegraph wires all across Europe and America lighting the skies in many parts to the extent that miners awoke to start their day with breakfast in the middle of night. It was the largest single solar eruption from a sunspot in recorded solar observation history, described in Stuart Clark’s book, The Sun Kings.

Did sun eruption spawn zombie satellite? Huge spacequakes shaking Earth’s magnetic field Blog: Huge blasts of sun’s plasma hurtling toward Earth Within twenty-four hours, the Aurora Borealis electrified the skies glowing in red, green, and purple colors so bright that newspaper print appeared as if it were daylight in numerous locations throughout North America as far south as Cuba but normally keep to the cold Arctic Polar Regions. The lights resulted from the electromagnetic energy fields created by the solar wind plasma colliding with the Earth’s upper magnetosphere on a significant larger planetary scale, as told in Clark’s 189-page book published in 2007.
