Yahoo_Limit Down_2020_03_22_802pm

Yahoo finance reports US stock futures in ‘limit down’ status on Sunday, 3/22/2020.  Worth noting is Yahoo’s attribution of the crisis to the “coronavirus crisis.”  This is incorrect.  Our financial crisis is the responsibility of the Fed and those who justify and encourage its ungodly practices of debt creation, monetary debasement and bailouts.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose.”

Romans 8:28

That was an interesting week.  Last week, I’m talking about.  The one where, if we are still working, we’re doing so from makeshift home offices, the one where governors are locking down the citizenry of entire states and shutting down their economies, the one where the financial markets continue of crash at a rate comparable to, or even exceeding, that of 1929, and this at a time when the Fed is printing more funny money faster than it ever has.

It would seem that Humpty Dumpty indeed has fallen, and all the king’s horses and men are working feverishly to put him back together.  Will they succeed?  That depends on your definition of success.  It may well be that by printing enough money and bailing out not just individual companies, but entire industries, the powers that be may succeed in extending the current politico-financial system a bit longer.  Maybe another year of so.  Who knows?  Longer term, it is doubtful that the current governmental and financial structures currently in place will be able to survive in their current form.  Change is going to happen.

Just to give you a idea about how desperate some in the political establishment haver become, last week a member of Congress suggested  that the federal government provide every person in America – she did not say citizens, but every person in America, which includes, among others, illegal aliens – with a pre-loaded debit card in the amount of $2,000, which would be renewed with $1,000 per month for a year.  That works out to $660 billion for the first month, then $330 Billion for the next eleven months.  If I’ve done my math correctly, this works out to almost $4.2 trillion.

How does she plan to pay for it?  This Congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), wants the Treasury to issue two $1 trillion platinum coins, have the Fed purchase the coins, then have the Treasury sweep the funds into the Treasury General account, from which the money would be disbursed to “every person in America.”

This is nothing but a massive dollar devaluation scheme, not unlike what FDR did in 1933-34 when he forced everyone to turn in his physical gold, then devalued the dollar about 70% against gold.  The biggest difference is that Tlaib’s scheme would be far more aggressive in devaluing the dollar, meaning it would be massively inflationary.  This can easily be seen if we consider the current price os platinum and the amount of investment grade platinum that is currently available.  The current price of platinum in US dollars is $618.61.  According to this article, there are about 8 million total ounces of investment grade platinum bullion available in the world.  At current prices, this means the total value of all investible platinum is about $5 billion.  If the US federal government used this entire 8 million ounces to mint two huge coins weighing 4 million ounces each, this implies that the dollar would be devalued against platinum to approx. 1/400 of its current value.  Put another way, platinum would go from $618.62 per ounce to around $247,444 per ounce.  Other prices would rise accordingly.  Put another way, the dollar would lose 99.75% of its value against platinum.  This is even enough to make an inflationist such as FDR blush.

Of course, it’s highly doubtful that, even if Tlaib’s scheme were put into practice, the coins – if you can call a 4 million troy ounce object a coin at all – would almost certainly be far smaller than in my example above.  This means that the devaluation of the dollar would be far greater than 99.75%

Further, Tlaib claims that her scheme is deficit-neutral, not requiring any new debt to be issued.  Perhaps I’m missing something here or have done my math wrong, but the cost of her program for one year is more than double the $2 Trillion value of her two proposed coins, so where does the other $2 trillion plus come from?

I went through the above exercise in some detail just to give you an example of the sort of absurd nonsense that passes for thinking among our leaders in Washington.  And while Tlaib’s scheme is ridiculous, it’s really not all that much more absurd than proposals being floated by the Trump administration.  Trump is talking about bailing out whole industries, having the federal government own stock of bailed out companies and sending checks to everyone as well.  President Trump himself has gone on record arguing for negative interest rates and quantitative easing.

As in 2008, so it is in 2020.  Government officials are running around with their hair on fire desperately trying to fix a debt crisis by, wait for it…taking on more debt!

Pope Francis addresses joint session of Congress, September 2015.

I like the alternate media, don’t get me wrong. I have great respect for those who, with little fanfare and even less pay, put themselves out there as bloggers and YouTubers, as Podcasters and independent journalists. As a blogger myself, I suppose you’d expect me to say that.

But while the alternate media has done some wonderful work in educating people on how the world really works, as opposed to how the mainstream corporate media wants you to believe it works, the subject of the Papacy and the Roman Church-State is rarely discussed.

GND_Announcement

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), Roman Catholics themselves and graduates of Jesuit Boston College, unveil the Green New Deal, February 7, 2019.  Alex Wong/Getty Images   

So I finally started reading the Green New Deal (GND) tonight in preparation for what I hope will be an upcoming series on socialism. With the rise of openly socialist politicians in the US, it is imperative for Christians to speak out against this ungodly political and economic system, both to preserve our remaining liberties and to witness to the system of truth as revealed in the pages of Scripture.

The GND is almost certainly the most aggressive attack on the Bible’s system of economics and politics, what John Robbins called constitutional capitalism, launched in my lifetime by an American politician. It’s so aggressive that my first thought is that the papal Antichrist must in some way be connected to it.

And guess what? It is.

The House Resolution “Recognizing the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal” begins with the following sentence, “Whereas the October 2018 report entitled ‘Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 ˚C’ by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change….”

So, the GND is to a large degree based on a report issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which notes on the groups homepage that it “is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change. Anyone with a passing familiarity with the UN and the politics of the Roman Catholic Church-State (RCCS) knows that Rome and the UN are intimately connected. As John Robbins noted, “In the judgment of the Church-State, the United Nations is, at the present time, the likeliest vehicle to achieve the political and economic world unification that the Roman Church-State desires” (Ecclesiastical Megalomania, 194).

Since the GND’s socialist call to action is based largely on the IPCC’s report, and since the IPCC is part of the UN, and since Rome has a long history of supporting the UN and it various programs designed to promote world government, it is worth reviewing what Rome has had to say about the document that is so foundational to the GND.

No big surprise here. Rome loves it. For example,

  • “The complexity of this task, however, is amplified by the great sense of urgency to act, as was unmistakably stressed in the last Intergovernmental Panel on climate Change (IPCC) Special Report.” Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin
  • “Catholics urge action as UN report forecasts climate crisis in coming decades” National Catholic Reporter
  • “Members of the Holy See delegation spoke clearly during the meeting of the need to listen to scientists, particularly in the latest IPCC report, which echoes the cry of the earth and shows clearly the devastating impact of climate change on communities around the world” Vatican press release, 12/12/2018.

Worth noting the two sponsors of the House Resolution, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) are themselves both Roman Catholics and graduates of Jesuit Boston College.

Doubtless there are further connections between the GND and the RCCS to be discovered, but it seemed good to point out even the little bit that has come to light in just a few minutes research.

Rome’s ungodly Thomistic philosophy combined with its undisguised ambition to usher in world government make it imperative that Christians not only not be ignorant of Antichrist’s devices, but also that they refute his ideas, including his destructive environmental teachings, from the Scriptures.
