As mentioned before, we are headed towards some form of a global government - a structure which will ultimately serve to support the antichrist and the false prophet and their world reign.
7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
According to arguably the most passionate globalist, George Soros, first comes a global financial structure and currency and then a global governance to run things. Indeed, this is what we are seeing evolve every day.
The Group of Thirty (or G-30) describes itself as “a private, nonprofit, international body composed of very senior representatives of the private and public sectors and academia,” which “aims to deepen understanding of international economic and financial issues, to explore the international repercussions of decisions taken in the public and private sectors, and to examine the choices available to market practitioners and policymakers.”
Its membership consists of roughly thirty major figures in the global financial world, from central banks, academia, international institutions and major private financial institutions. These figures hold regular meetings, conduct research and produce highly-influential reports through various “working groups,” providing a forum for top policy makers and private sector market “actors” to meet and hold discussions, while helping shape consensus and give recommendations to policy makers on issues of finance and governance.
This institution, though not widely discussed, is enormously influential. And here’s why.
The history of the Group of Thirty goes back to the Rockefeller Foundation, which provided the organization’s initial funding. In its 1978 annual report, the Rockefeller Foundation – which represents the interests of highly centralized corporate and financial power – recalled that it was created in 1913 as a response to “the Populist assault on the massive concentration of wealth in the hands of few.” (Annual Report, 1978, Rockefeller Foundation.)
The 1978 report noted that a former managing director of the IMF, Johannes Witteveen, “agreed to assume the chairmanship of a Consultative Group on International Economic and Monetary Affairs made up of leading bankers, officials, economists, and businessmen from the developed and developing world.” The objective of this group was, the report stated, was “to help analyze, through scholarly inquiry and international consultations, some of the vexing economic and monetary problems facing the world today, and to make their findings widely known.”
The Rockefeller Foundation expressed a keen interest in structuring the global economic and monetary issues of the day, noting that: “The international economic system is not functioning well – as evidenced by slow economic growth, persistent unemployment, and high inflation in many countries, growing skepticism about the capacity of floating exchange rates to correct imbalances of payments, increasing fears of protectionism, and relatively little progress in meeting the needs of developing countries and the quarter of the world’s population that is very poor.”
Fast forward more than three decades and the Group of Thirty remains a highly influential organization in matters of global financial governance. Members of the G-30 have included notable figures such as Josef Ackermann, Pedro Aspe, Alan Greenspan, Andrew Crockett, and the newly-anointed Chair of the Federal Reserve System, Janet Yellen.
In March of 2009, the Financial Times published a list of “the 50 people likely to be the most influential in shaping the world debate” on “tackling the many problems” of the global financial and economic crisis, “and charting a course through them to a new world order.”
The article noted that, “networks and institutions will matter as much as individuals,” and in particular it referenced the Group of Thirty as “one interesting connection between these players,” with 11 of the 50 individuals selected on the list being members of the G-30. Four years after the list was published, the number of its individuals who were also members of the G-30 increased to 14.
One of those is Jean-Claude Trichet, the former President of the European Central Bank and current Chairman of the Group of Thirty. Upon assuming his role as chairman in 2011, Trichet stated: “This is a time of exceptional challenges to the global economic and financial system, and the G30 will continue to make significant contributions to the policy debate and enhance understanding of the critical paths to stability and to economic growth.”
This is but a brief introduction to the Group of Thirty, its members, and its influence, which will be elaborated upon in future installments of the Global Power Project. Stay tuned for the second part in the series next week.
The Coming Global Wealth Tax – Indebted governments may soon consider a big one-time levy on capital assets. Between ObamaCare, Iran and last quarter's uptick in U.S. economic growth, taxpayers these days may be distracted from several dangers to come. But households from the United States to Europe and Japan may soon face fiscal shocks worse than any market crash. The White House and New York Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio aren't the only ones calling for higher taxes (especially on the wealthy), as voices from the International Monetary Fund to billionaire investor Bill Gross increasingly make the case too.
In his November investment commentary for bond giant Pimco, Mr. Gross asks the "Scrooge McDucks of the world" to accept higher personal income taxes and to stop expecting capital to be taxed at lower rates than labor. In October the IMF floated a bold idea that didn't get the attention it deserved: lowering sovereign debt levels through a one-off tax on private wealth. – Wall Street Journal
Dominant Social Theme: More tax revenue is needed to make governments around the world work.
There are three major conclusions that we would draw from this. First, those globalists who want homogenized, high-tax societies have no intention of lowering the pressure on increasingly harassed people around the world. Second, this is a coordinated attack. Third, those launching it don't seem to care how transparent it is. They will continue.
There is a fourth conclusion as well, which is that no matter how much tax revenues governments get, that revenue will be basically wasted – and then still more revenue will be needed. If governments were allowed to do so, the amount of revenue a given government could waste would surely approach 100 percent of a given nation's revenues.
From New York to London, Paris and beyond, powerful economic players are deciding that with an ever-deteriorating global fiscal outlook, conventional levels and methods of taxation will no longer suffice. That makes weapons of mass wealth destruction – such as the IMF's one-off capital levy, Cyprus's bank deposit confiscation, or outright sovereign defaults – likelier by the day.
The most telling statement above is this one: "And with a chilling candor, the IMF admits that its revenue-maximizing approach takes no account of the well-being of top earners (or their businesses)."
In fact, what is contemplated is not an approach but an attack. It is evidently and obviously one being coordinated from the top. Those internationalists that run the current system want to raise taxes and have no concern for "top earners."
That's because taxes are not really about raising revenues. The expansion of taxes around the world is all about destruction. Destruction of civil resources. Destruction of culture. Destruction, even, of society itself.
This is what we have been predicting – and discussing – regularly. Our current crop of globalists, alarmed by what we call the Internet Reformation, has surely expanded their attacks.
It does not seem to us any coincidence that the BRICs have risen up at the same time as Europe and the US have fallen down. Both the dollar and the euro are under attack and BRIC currencies are far stronger than they were a decade ago.
Is the world being forcibly evened out prior to the implementation of an increasingly internationalist monetary regime? War stalks the world. China and Japan are facing off. The Middle East has been undermined by the US State Department and the CIA.
And as we pointed out above, as there is no way to control government spending, governments can and will spend all the revenue they receive, up to and including the entire gross national product.
The war has apparently commenced in earnest. Increasingly confiscatory strategies are now to be set in place and coordinated around the world. Buy precious metals, farmland and food. Keep your wealth close to you and pay as little to the government as you legally can.
1 Thessalonians 5: 2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. 3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
Of course we're just seeing the preliminary basis of what is to come later. It is interesting however, to see the early stages of the ultimate 'covenant' forming:

He said the security plan he presented in Jerusalem and Ramallah this week was the most thorough analysis ever “of the Israeli requirements that arise from the potential of a two-state solution” and that the US was working with Jordan and the Palestinians to “create a layered approach that both guarantees Israel’s security and fully respects Palestinian sovereignty.”
Kerry also stressed heavily the importance of peace with the Palestinians and the two-state solution to the conflict.
“We are convinced that the greatest security [for Israel] will actually come from a two-state solution that brings Israel lasting peace, shared prosperity throughout the region, good relations among neighbors, peace of mind for the people of Israel and for Palestinians alike. None of this is possible without addressing Israel’s legitimate security concerns, and ensuring that as a result of peace, Israelis feel more secure, and are more secure, not less,” he said.
“That is why security led our agendas in Jerusalem and Ramallah this week,” Kerry stressed.
A lack of a final status agreement, “leaves things to mischief, and to all the worst forces that can fill a vacuum,” he warned.
Echoing remarks made earlier Saturday at the same forum by President Barack Obama, Kerry said: “There is no mystery about what a two-state solution looks like.”
He added: “If you care about Israel, its future, if you care about Palestinians, we need to believe that peace is possible and we need to act on that belief,” he went on.
Speaking of US efforts in ongoing peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, which recommenced in July under heavy US pressure, and of security proposals he unveiled to the Israeli and Palestinian leaderships in Jerusalem and Ramallah this week, Kerry said that “never before has the US done such a thorough security analysis of the Israeli requirements that arise from the potential of a two-state solution. Never.”
Kerry said the US was coordinating with the Jordanians and the Palestinians to “create a layered approach that both guarantees Israel’s security and fully respects Palestinian sovereignty.”
“We are examining every potential security scenario, something on the border, something in the future, terrorism in the future, a weakness in the Hashemite Kingdom, whatever it might be,” he said.
Having this week unveiled an American plan for security arrangements between Israel and the Palestinians under a permanent peace deal, Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly also intends to set out American proposals in the near future to resolve the other core issues — Jerusalem, the borders of a Palestinian state, and the Palestinian refugees.
The secretary was relieved that the response was not furious opposition, and intends to proceed with the “gradual” unveiling of a comprehensive American blueprint for a permanent accord, covering all the key issues of dispute, the TV report said. Launching the current Israeli-Palestinian talks in late July, Kerry expressed confidence that a permanent peace accord ending the conflict could be reached within the following nine months; almost half of that period has now elapsed.
Kerry left Israel Friday after three meetings in two days with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and one session with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. In contrast to previous visits, he was accompanied this time by retired US Gen. John Allen, who detailed the American plan for security arrangements.
The US, under the proposal, would provide an additional security “envelope,” which would utilize drones and other high-tech equipment to provide real-time intelligence on any terrorist threats and other unlawful border activity.
An earlier version of Kerry’s proposal had apparently suggested the presence of an international force in the Jordan Valley. This was dismissed as absolutely unthinkable by Netanyahu, Channel 2 reported.
Kerry told the Israeli leadership in Jerusalem on Thursday and Friday that 160 people had worked on the security plan. He is to meet Saturday in Washington with Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman to discuss it further.
A nuclear arms race is now arising in the Middle East, starting with an Iranian nuke, then a Saudi and Egyptian one. Nobody knows the end game. Obama's biggest legacy may be worldwide instability for years to come.
This administration is coming to an end. If you take away its corruption and thuggery, its constant scapegoating, its weird cast of characters, its astronomical spending, its drone killings of terrorists who were supposed to be dead last year, and itshealthcare debacle -- everything comes down to imperial overreach.
Obama's "peace deal" in Geneva blamed a thousand years of Muslim warfare on the innocent Jews of Israel rather than the bloody mullahs of Iran, the Wahhabi throwbacks of Arabia, or those Al Qaida child-killers in Kenya. The Bamster just pulled off another PR stunt to keep our idiot media kissing the ground while the "Geneva peace deal" goes rolling straight into the rocks. All we need is a laugh track and popcorn.
Obama brings out comedy even in dour Russians like Vladimir Putin, who supposedly said that "Negotiating with Obama is like playing chess with a pigeon. The pigeon knocks over all the pieces, shits on the board and then struts around like it won the game."
Europe is in even worse shape, because it has been run by Eurosocialists like Obama for fifty years. The EU is so brainlocked that no policy is ever changed, no matter what. Europe has cannibalized its military on the assumption that the U.S. could always be suckered into defending them, but that is now changing, as we are in retreat. The southern and eastern part of Europe is in economic despair, but the ruling class hasn't changed one little bit. Neofascist parties are rising, and one has taken over Hungary. But nobody elected the EU and nobody can vote it out.
A few weeks ago Obama got the EU and Putin to sign a "peace deal" that put Israel on the spot to give chunks of its tiny territory to the terror regimes, for nothing in return. As part of Obama's stab in the back, Israel was confronted with a giggling Mullah Rouhani snapping up the ultimate deal. Netanyahu stood up to relentless browbeating from our Bully in Chief and said No.
Our despicable media instantly smeared Netanyahu, the way they always do.
It was a Churchill moment for Netanyahu.
None of the Euroconnivers who signed that "deal" have any faith in Iran. Their purpose is to squeeze Israel's government and people to bend over backwards. The Pals played along by staging small terror attacks in Israel, never reported by the U.S. media, but big enough to worry their people. In full genocidal rage, the European left mounted "Boycott Israel" demonstrations. Our Organs of Propaganda formed their own high-tech lynch mob. American treasoneers like Noam Chomsky were trotted out. Jerusalem didn't budge.
Seeing their dream "deal" falling apart, the mullahs and the Pals stopped smiling and went back to daily death threats. Death to Israel! Death to America!
Vladimir Putin gets the next turn. Obama has no chips left. Yes, he got Zbig Brzezinski to threaten Israel with the U.S. Air Force if they dared to strike Iran's nuclear plants. I want to see our domestic backlash if that ever happens.
The U.S. has now ended up on the side of evil in the Middle East: We protect nuke-hungry fanatics; we support neo-Ottomans to betray an Israeli spy network in Iran; we supply arms to 60,000 Al Qaida monsters who murder children in Christian villages. Obama keeps having to fix the warfare he unleashed in Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Yemen, Tunisia. The Arab world is in chaos. Iran is winning. Only Israel is democratic, modern and stable.
This is what Putin wants, of course -- more Russian power and an American retreat. Putin only has to pick up the pieces Obama keeps dropping.
RE: Global Financial Structure
From Wheaton College, the INSTITUTE FOR THE STUDY OF AMERICAN EVANGELICALS, (a revised 2012 study)-- a general estimate of the nation’s evangelicals could safely be said to range somewhere between 30-35% of the population, or about 90-100 million Americans.
When you add in other Christians that profess Christ as Savior, but may not identify themselves as being Evangelical, the percentage goes even higher than 30-35%. Once the Rapture takes place that’s a whole lot of law abiding, tax paying people who will be gone.
Scott, just curious, if in your research over the years, if you’ve ever run across an analysis of what the Rapture would do to this country (and the world) financially? Are you of the opinion that the Antichrist coming on the scene, after the Rapture, will be more a geopolitical reason with financial reasons to follow, or vice versa?

“As God’s chosen people clothe yourselves with kindness.” Col 3:12
Since there is no other way to get this message to you, I’ve waited until this will go into older posts.
I wanted to personally apologize to you for the circumstances surrounding my coming onto your website. I was wrong. It really was “the perfect storm”-- my circumstances, combined with you being at a Hillsong concert that night, and a tornado in the US with those of different beliefs making comments about God judging us because of sin.
I have an adult daughter with severe brittle diabetes whom I care for because she’s so ill she can’t live with her husband. Her husband has become involved with the Prosperity theology & has actually crossed the line into physical/mental abuse toward my daughter because of his beliefs. I have another daughter with polyglandular syndrome who has 48 hrs to get to an emergency room (if she were ever to miss her medication) or she will die. I have a husband who is a cancer survivor, and I, myself, am legally blind & have a severe hearing impairment.
Why tell you all this? Because I wanted you to understand why I reacted the way I did. My family & I aren’t bad people who are being subject to "passed on generational sin"-- we are all believers who love the Lord. You said you didn’t really read everything that was posted that night, but my comments were “in response” to others. In addition, as I recall, I was the only one who sincerely apologized to the others. As I said, I reacted, and it was wrong. Forgive my need to justify myself. I came onto your site because I have a zeal for prophecy, but it is very obvious you don’t want me posting, so, bowing out.
“There are no issues only people with issues.” No, not quite true. There are those of us who are in the trenches, everyday, dealing with life’s “issues,” and it is messy. We don’t all get the opportunity to attend worship concerts with 20 thousands others, but we all, do, have to learn to accept the circumstances that God gives us in this life & do it "in kindness." Oswald Chambers said, “There’s always one fact more that you don’t know about a person.” Please try not to judge me too harshly.
May God bless your continued efforts to speak His truth through prophecy.
I'm actually not sure what you are referring to (?)
I recall deleting a "block" of comments after reading a couple, as I didn't have time to read them all and it was late. So I'm completely in the dark as far as anything you were referencing above, so I don't know how to respond. I assume the topic had something to do with generational sin (?) - which isn't something I haven't spent a lot of time on, so I don't really have feelings or opinions one way or the other on that particular topic. So unfortunately, I don't have much to add - only that I'm ignorant of that discussion
