Over the last 200+ years, America has been the dominant world power. Not only that, but America has stood for the cause of freedom and democracy around the world and has successfully defended these concepts, most dramatically during WWII, but also throughout the 20th century.
We also know what is in store during the Tribulation - a world dictatorship a world religion, a world currency and these changes set the stage for the second half of the Tribulation during which time a forced worship of the antichrist will take place and those who do not accept such worship will be beheaded.
This is hardly a world which is consistent with a strong, dominant America.
To add to this - we notice when reading the book of Revelation, particularly chapters 6-18 - those chapters which present a very detailed view of the world during the Tribulation - there is absolutely no reference to America. Not even a vague, tangential reference. Meanwhile, the world powers (the revived Roman Empire, the Kings of the East, Russia, from the north and the powers coming from the "South") receive a lot of attention in the scriptures. Again, no mention of America.
So what happens?
For years, many of us speculated that the Rapture of the Church would disproportionately affect America and that alone could account for the demise of America (and this could still play an important role).
Recent events however have made it clear that America's decline from its status as the world power is already well underway:
American Hellholes: A Glimpse of the Future?
The U.S. economy is dying and we are heading for the next Great Depression. The talking heads in the mainstream media love to spin the economic numbers around and around and they love to make it sound like the economy is improving, but the truth is that it doesn't take a genius to see what is happening to the U.S. economic system.
All over the nation many of our greatest cities are being slowly but surely transformed into post-apocalyptic wastelands. All over the mid-Atlantic, all along the Gulf coast, all throughout the "rust belt" and all over the entire state of California cities that once had incredibly vibrant economies are being turned into rotting, post-industrial hellholes.
In many U.S. cities, the "real" rate of unemployment is over 30 percent. There are some communities that will start depressing you almost the moment that you drive into them. It is almost as if all of the hope has been sucked right out of those communities. If you live in one of those American hellholes you know what I am talking about.
If you live in one of those American hellholes you know what I am talking about. Sadly, it is not just a few cities that are becoming hellholes. This is happening in the east, in the west, in the north and in the south. America is literally being transformed right in front of our eyes.
The paragraphs are just the introduction to this article. There's more, and this article is well worth reading in its entirety. After describing the plight of several American cities, we come to the following conclusions:
But this is not just a "California thing". The truth is that what is happening in California, in Detroit, in Camden and in hundreds of other communities is also going to happen where you live.
The U.S. economy is slowly dying. Only 66.8% of American men had a job last year. That was the lowest level that has ever been recorded in U.S. history.
People are getting desperate. There are ten percent fewer middle class jobs than there were a decade ago and the competition for good jobs has become insane. More than 44 million Americans are now on food stamps and that number grows every single month. Millions more American families fall into poverty every single year.
It is time to face the truth about what is happening to America. Our economy is not growing and becoming stronger. Rather, the cold, hard reality of the matter is that our economy is very sick and it is dying. The seemingly boundless prosperity that we have enjoyed for decade after decade is coming to an end. Our communities are being transformed into absolute hellholes.
Those that are telling you that the U.S. economy will soon be better than ever are lying to you. The U.S. economy is going to go down and it is going to go down hard.
You better get ready.
How is this happening? Why is this happening?
Some of those questions and discussed here:
The Globalists' Takeover of Argentina is a Blueprint for America
This article bolsters the view of many, including myself - the view that the collapse of America is a planned event. And once again, guess who's name pops up? That's right. None other than Mr George Soros:
Yes, George Soros was involved in the global elites’ takeover of Argentina which de-industrialized their country, eliminated their middle class and plunged their citizens into massive starvation and unspeakable poverty.
Yes, Argentina’s President and politicians were “in” with the global elites, and their Unions were “in” with the corrupt government officials… just as America’s President Obama, Congress and Unions are “in” with each other, with George Soros and with the other global elites.
That said, what happened in Argentina is what’s happening in America right now.
How many times do we have to see Mr Soros behind the scenes when it involves this specific situation?
What happened in Argentina looks exactly like what we are seeing happen to America in real time:
Argentina was a socialist country whereby the government controlled the means of production and doled out to the people via the “rights” their government granted. Because their government controlled everything, government had the ability to take everything away and sell off the revenue producing sources/resources to the global elites. And that’s just what they did… at bargain-basement prices.
They stripped Argentina of its assets, sold them off to the fat-cat global elites, and they increased Argentina’s national debt through massive out-of-control government spending that could never be repaid. This took money directly out of the pockets of the people in order to put it in their own pockets, to destroy their middle class and plunge the people into poverty – and of course to set the conditions to justify placing Argentina under International Monetary Fund (IMF)/United Nations‘ (UN) control
And how does this parallel events in America?
In America, Obama has nationalized our banks, our car industry, student loans, healthcare, food, etc. These industries are now ripe and ready for sell-off to the fat-cat global elites.
Obama has added over $4.3 Trillion to our national debt in just 2 ½ years – with a complicit and corrupt Congress. To put that into perspective, it took 233 years to accumulate a national debt of $10 Trillion. In just 2 ½ years, Obama added 30% ($4.3 Trillion) to it through massive, massive spending that has to come directly out of the pockets of American citizens and businesses who already give approximately $2.1 Trillion to the Federal government every year.
Union leaders who brag about their daily interaction with the White House could care less that union employees will lose their jobs; they clearly state their primary objective is to suck as much money out of the government as possible, thus causing our national debt to go even higher in hopes of collapsing States under the weight of such massive government costs
And once again, Soros' name comes back in the picture:
Now we’re hearing George Soros say that our government needs to spend more (increase our debt further), institute a ‘managed decline’ of our dollar (already in progress), and we hear that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geitner and the head of the largest private bank in America – the Federal Reserve’s Chairman Ben Bernanke are considering IMF/UN control of America’s economy and transition to a global currency which will abolish the dollar. How many pennies on the dollar do you think the exchange rate will be?
Obama is purposely causing energy prices to skyrocket (just as he promised during the 2008 Presidential campaign) because he will not let oil company’s drill; oil company’s and refineries are closing down operations in America and moving to globalist-favored countries like Brazil. Obama is also putting our coal industry out of business just as he said he would.
Can you see the parallels? Argentina was set up by their government in much the same way that George Soros, Obama and their comrades are setting America up.
Below we see even more parallels with Argentina:
Small businesses in Argentina where choked to death because they were being charged 50% interest on small business loans. Clearly the globalists were ensuring complete de-industrialization of Argentina. How easy is it for small businesses in America to get loans right now?
Argentina’s people never got justice and weren’t able to hold their corrupt politicians accountable because the politicians and courts/judges were all in on it and they had all the power. Sound familiar?
Obama, George Soros, Cass Sunstein, Hillary Clinton and their comrades in Congress are writing a new Constitution for America which gives government the power, not the people, to grant “rights” such as jobs, healthcare and food. Once they abolish our current Constitution (which purposely limits government control and places the power in the hands of the people) and institute their New Constitution giving government the power to give and take away our rights, the set-up is complete.
If you don't believe it - just keep watching. Its happening rapidly right now.
The bottom line?
This is why potential candidates who know what’s going on, who want to restore our Constitution, and are against the globalists’ takeover of America… like Michelle Bachmann, Allen West and Sarah Palin… must be smeared and destroyed by our government-controlled media and globalist politicians on both sides of the aisle.
What’s happened in Argentina is important for us to know because we have a President whose actions are following the blueprint of destruction that befell Argentina.
America is now a heartbeat away from being sold out to the global elites just as Argentina’s government did to their citizens.
The following 12 part video series tells the tale. Pay particular attention to the American players and global corporations we’re all familiar with. Also notice that the people of Argentina kept waiting for their government to give what they promised and many died as they waited. It wasn’t until they joined with their neighbors and began to occupy land and work together to feed and take care of themselves and each other that they were able to survive.
The videos referenced are in the article.
One more highly germane article:
Maxed Out America: Coming Sooner Than You Think
How far can a government run up its debts before lenders either decide to stop lending or raise their interest rates? As PJ Institute economist Laurence Kotlikoff noted in an early April column, there is a consensus that a country reaches “a critical insolvency threshold” once its public debt hits 90% of GDP. At that point, lender cutoffs and interest-rate premiums become real possibilities. Call it the point where we become “Maxed Out America.”
The real problem, of course, is spending, which, even after the budget deal, will have grown by over $1 trillion in four years, or about 40%, by the end of fiscal 2011. Maxed Out America cannot be avoided at currently projected spending levels.
The PJ Institute’s Maxed Out America Special Report has a stern warning about the consequences of doing nothing: “Our sixteen year old kids, entering the tenth grade of high school in the fall, may face this economic impact when they graduate from college in 2017, if not sooner.” Are we as a nation willing to accept that possibility?
Given the oncoming calamity, Washington’s lack of serious urgency is scandalous. The Maxed Out America initiative intends to change that. Readers should ensure that their congressperson and senators understand that they, and we, are quickly running out of time.
One way or another, America has to be taken out of the big picture before the rise of the antichrist.
The America that I once knew would have never ever allowed for a world dictator to take over and impose his draconian rule. But we know that America will not be a powerful player on the world stage during the Tribulation, thus, something has to happen.
Its all part of this ongoing process to pave the road to the Tribulation and the antichrist's rule. And we're watching it happen. We shouldn't be surprised.
