US Dollar Crisis
Introduction The US Dollar has had a special status for centuries. When I (a Canadian) wanted to withdraw some cash from a bank machine in Lima, Peru the only currency available other than Peruvian was the US Dollar. It has been used as the standard currency of trade and has been the currency that traders always go for when there is an international crisis. But what if the crisis is the very value of the "almighty American dollar"? It will be interesting to see what happens in the near future. The world will soon face a terrible crisis and you might be wise to have your financial house in order and do some planning for financial hard times. Even more important is to get your spiritual house in order and be sure that your real treasure is in heaven.
Note that I am simply sharing items of interest. That does not imply that I agree with everything presented.
"And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars ... nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes ..." (Matt 24:6-7)

The US Dollar Crisis
US Dollar: Ring-Fenced & Checkmate
The currency will be required to submit to
"An unstoppable sequence of events has been put into motion finally. The pressure has been building for months. Some themes are plainly evident, except to those who wear rose colored glasses.
"The US Treasury Bond will be brought home to the US and British banks, where it will choke its bankers, then be devalued for survival reasons, after a painful isolation.
"The Chinese and Russians will conspire to finance the Eurasian Trade Zone corridor foundation with USTBonds, held in reserve, put to usage. The British will play a very unusual role, selling out the United States in order to be squires to the Eastern Duo. The process has begun; it cannot be stopped. The events are already being grossly misinterpreted and minimized in the US press, where devoted lapdogs, artistic swindlers, and creative writers prevail. The following blueprint is the result of years of planning, with steady information and hints and confirmations by at least two Hat Trick Letter sources. The sunset of the US Dollar has a blueprint."Click here to read it all
Sorry, Mates, Strictly Business: Australia Wants To Cut Out US Dollar In Trade With China
Pictured are bank notes denominated in the
Australian dollar and Chinese yuan.
"Australia is seeking to bypass trading in the US dollar with China in an effort to avoid the commercial uncertainties that come with the recent fluctuations in the greenback. For example, just a half a year ago, the US dollar traded at about $1.20 to the euro; by February, it had weakened to $1.34 per euro and now it is going for $1.27.
"Eliminating the dollar in trade will be the focus of Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard's trip to Beijing next week. Trade with China, Australia's primary trading partner, totaled $120 billion in the last fiscal year. China buys nearly one-third of Australian exports.
"The Australian government has made no secret of its aims to shift away trade from the US dollar, the world's primary reserve currency used in international commerce.
"Canberra's aims to build on a $30 billion currency-swap deal with China signed last year that makes funds available for business transactions between the two countries through their respective state-run banks."Click here to read it all
Jim Rogers: "I Suspect They'll Take The Pension Plans Next; I For One Am Worried, And I'm Taking Preparations"
If people have money in any account,
anywhere in the world ... cut it down
to under the guaranteed amount.
"Speaking towards the frightening implications of the Cyprus banking collapse, Jim said that, 'It's been condoned [now] by the IMF, the European union, and everybody else in sight; that a government in need, can take assets. We all knew they could tax us...but this is the first time that I'm aware of, that they've gone in and taken bank accounts. They took gold from people in the U.S. in the 1930's ... but I've never heard of them taking bank accounts. [Now] they're doing it. So be careful [because], now they can take your bank account under this precedent.'"Click here to read it all
Biden Calls for a New World Order
Vice President Joe Biden called for the
creation of a "new world order."
"Delivering the keynote address at the Export-Import Bank Conference in Washington, D.C. on Friday, Biden stated "the affirmative task we have now is to create a new world order."
"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.'"Click here to read it all
Global Tension Mounts: Iran Warns U.S. an Attack on Nuclear Facilities Would Trigger World War III
IRAN -- ratcheted up its vitriol against Israel and the United States over the weekend, warning that an attack on the Islamic regime's nuclear facilities could lead to global war. The rhetoric eerily matched that currently coming out of North Korea against its perceived enemies.
"The commander of the Islamic regime's ground forces, Brig. Gen. Ahmad Reza Poordastan, in his speech at Friday Prayers, also warned 'the enemies' that the country's army has its finger on the trigger and that any attack on the country will make the 'enemy' regret its actions. The regime's PressTV ran an op-ed analysis on Saturday with a headline 'Iran deals deathblow to U.S. global hegemony.' The analysis, by Finian Cunningham, an Irishman whom the outlet calls 'a prominent expert in international affairs,' blames America for much of the world's problems and warns of its decline."Click here to read it all
Israel may face wars with Iran and Syria within two months say analysts
"Israeli intelligence officials say the moment is fast approaching when the country's so-called 'red line' triggers for military action in both Syria and Iran will have been crossed. "President Bashar al-Assad is already believed to have crossed the line in Syria by using chemical weapons. "And there is now a widely shared view within Israeli intelligence that Iran will have the option of a nuclear capability by the end of the year. "Amos Yadlin, the former commander of Israeli Military Intelligence, said of Iran: 'We are headed toward a collision course by the end of this year.' "Mr Yadlin explained that by the summer it may be almost impossible for Israel to stop Iran developing nuclear weapons: 'We have about two months to sleep soundly, until the Iranian elections. After that, I believe the Iranians will have to make a difficult decision.'" "Meanwhile, Brigadier-General Itai Brun, commander of the IDF's Military Intelligence Research Directorate, was unequivocal that 'the Syrian regime has made use of chemical weapons.' "This has always been seen as a 'red line' issue which would prompt Israeli military action. Click here to read it all

This next article explains a little of the establishment of the US dollar as the world's reserve curency.
The Blueprint for WWIII
"My next set of articles are not for the faint of heart. If you desire to keep on burying your head in the sand, then go watch the NFL Draft.
The Birth of the Petrodollar
"A novel system for monetary and exchange rates were established in 1944. The Bretton Woods Agreement was developed at the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference held in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, from July 1-22, 1944. This conference established the US dollar as the reserve currency of the world.
"As a result of the Bretton Woods Conference, all nations desiring to purchase Middle East oil had to first purchase dollars and use these dollars to complete the purchase of oil.
"Nearly everyone inside of our country benefited from this system. Americans basically enjoyed a stable currency minus the inflation rates of about 5% per year which served as an informal tax that went into the Federal Reserve banksters' pockets. Thus, the Petrodollar was born. If the Petrodollar were to ever be successfully undermined, our currency would sink faster than a submarine with screen doors because there is nothing backing up our money."
Israeli Expert: Iran Has Crossed Nuclear Red Line

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"The former head of Israel's military intelligence said last week that Iran has already crossed the 'red line' Israel previously set as the point beyond which it would be nearly impossible to stop the Islamic Republic from attaining nuclear weapons.
"In remarks carried by Israel National News, Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, who today heads the Institute for National Security Studies, explained that by this summer, Iran will 'reach a distance of one or two months between a decision and a bomb.'
"What that means is that as soon as the Iranian leadership decides to build an atomic bomb, it will be able to do so in a mere month or two. Far too short a time for Israel or the international community to act.
"US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was in Jerusalem last week to discuss the Iran threat with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu." Click here to read it all
Overfished and Under-protected: Oceans on the Brink of Catastrophic Collapse
Bottom-trawling is causing irreversible
damage to coral reefs.
Bottom-trawling is causing irreversible damage to coral reefs. CNN -- As the human footprint has spread, the remaining wildernesses on our planet have retreated. However, dive just a few meters below the ocean surface and you will enter a world where humans very rarely venture.
"In many ways, it is the forgotten world on Earth. A ridiculous thought when you consider that oceans make up 90% of the living volume of the planet and are home to more than one million species, ranging from the largest animal on the planet -- the blue whale -- to one of the weirdest -- the blobfish.
"Remoteness, however, has not left the oceans and their inhabitants unaffected by humans, with overfishing, climate change and pollution destabilizing marine environments across the world.
"Many marine scientists consider overfishing to be the greatest of these threats. The Census of Marine Life, a decade-long international survey of ocean life completed in 2010, estimated that 90% of the big fish had disappeared from the world's oceans, victims primarily of overfishing.
"Tens of thousands of bluefin tuna were caught every year in the North Sea in the 1930s and 1940s. Today, they have disappeared across the seas of Northern Europe. Halibut has suffered a similar fate, largely vanishing from the North Atlantic in the 19th century.
"In some cases, the collapse has spread to entire fisheries.
"The situation is even worse in Southeast Asia. In Indonesia, people are now fishing for juvenile fish and protein that they can grind into fishmeal and use as feed for coastal prawn farms. 'It's heading towards an end game,' laments Roberts."
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." (Luke 21:28)
