Greece is Going Down. You’re Next.

I’ve been tracking the possibility of a Greek default for a while, and there have been moments when it looked like Europe might come through with a plan to save Greece. I’m afraid that this ‘rescue’ is looking less and less likely to happen, and when Greece goes down, the EU will go with it.

America will not be far behind.

Greece might survive past the October 17th default line. They might. But, even if they do get past that one, it’s only a matter of time before Greece fails to meet its obligations on a 17th sometime in the near future.

The Federal Reserve Is Watching You

If this doesn’t creep you out, you are made of sterner stuff than I.

The US Constitution Erodes Away

Erosion creeps up on you. It happens a bit at a time, with each seemingly insignificant bit falling away, one insignificant moment at a time. Until you wake up one day and realize that it’s all gone.

I think that we’ve pretty much reached that point.

Here’s how I can tell:

The Soviet Union Rises Again

Just when you thought that they were gone, they’re back. And no, I don’t mean your in-laws.

(By the way, I’ve only got two weeks before mine descend on Taipei.)

As bad as your in-laws might be, the Soviet Union is worse. Lots worse. Oh, they’ll not call it the Soviet Union. They’ll call it Putin’s Russia, because it’s Putin who’s resurrecting this new version of the Soviet Union. I guess that we could call it Soviet Union 2.0, but let’s stick with Putin’s Russia. It sounds nicer that way.

I just read this on Pajamas Media:

Building Our Next God

Men and women have always been trying to create something that can replace God. Up to a few hundred years ago, we built statues and temples and worshiped those. But, they didn’t satisfy. They weren’t really awe-inspiring. They weren’t smarter. They didn’t talk. They didn’t interact. They were nothing but bits of stone, wood and metal.

A few hundred years ago we discovered the worship of ideas. “Isms” proliferated, Communism, Socialism, Nihilism, etc. Everyone built an ‘ism’ and behold, they thought it was good. However, a lot of our isms have fallen. They’ve become unsatisfactory.

Iranian Nuclear Weapons Get More Real

The possibility that North Korea would supply Iran with weapons-grade uranium has bothered me for some time. It seems to me like the most logical thing in the world for Pyongyang to hand over nuclear weapons material to a nation hell-bent on using the material against an arch-enemy, the United States.

I mean, if I was North Korea, I’d do that in a heart-beat. And, it seems that the possibility has become real enough to catch the attention of the Main Stream Media. If THOSE idiots catch on to something like this, you know we’re in trouble.

A New World Religion

There has always been a movement to unite the world’s religions, either by stamping them out or co-opting into a ‘new world religion’. Mohammed tried to do it by mixing Christianity, Judaism and Arab tradition. Hitler tried to impose himself as the object of worship. The Soviets tried to get people to worship the state. The Romans worshiped Caesar.

Well there’s this new movement out there that bothers me, and it tries to meld religions together. It’s called Faith Shared, and it’s a project of the Interfaith Alliance.

Here’s a description of what they are trying to do:

Automated Killing Machines

Yesterday, the Washington Post wrote the following article:

A future for drones: Automated killing

By , Published: September 20

One afternoon last fall at Fort Benning, Ga., two model-size planes took off, climbed to 800 and 1,000 feet, and began criss-crossing the military base in search of an orange, green and blue tarp.

The automated, unpiloted planes worked on their own, with no human guidance, no hand on any control.

Another Hook for Gog and Magog

It is becoming more and more clear that Gomer (Eze. 38:6) is Turkey.

It says in Ezekiel 38:

Ezekiel 38

  1. And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
  2. Son of man, set thy face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
  3. and say, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal:
  4. and I will turn thee about, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them handling swords;
