"When the lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, 'Come!' I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, 'A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages..."
As political tensions heat up it is becoming clear that the world’s super powers are vying for control of resources like oil, water, metals and food. And though developed nations have thus far avoided any significant clashes with each other, the proxy wars being waged in the middle east and Europe are a slow burning fuse that will soon lead to widespread military confrontation.
Throughout human history one key factor has been behind every major war: a battle for resources. As the following documentary warns, this time will be no different:
“The Pentagon told Fortune Magazine that World War III will be a fight over basic human needs – food and other commodities.”
The following are excerpts of Putin’s speech delivered at the Valdai conference in Sochi. The speech was directed at Western elites.
If anyone wants to see where western civilization is headed they need only to look at Venezuela today. The Bolivar has gone from 6.3 per dollar to 1,000 per dollar in the past few years. Last year farmers were ordered to turn over certain crops to the government for dispersion in government owned stores. About 100 shopping malls are now having their power cut for several hours a day as power shortages become a problem. But, as one citizen said, it doesn’t really matter because there isn’t anything to buy anyway. Last year their economy dropped 10% and this year it is expected to drop another 8%. They just had 36 747 cargo aircraft deliver newly printed cash to keep up with inflation.
This is the price of socialist programs and lack of sound economic practices. With currency inflating at this rate it is impossible for anyone to save from one year to the next. With government taking farm commodities how long will farmers continue to produce crops they will not get paid for or be paid in increasingly worthless currency. With power shortages commerce cannot continue in any serious way.
Saudi Arabia, Turkey the UAE and other actors in the Mideast are massing troops to intervene in the Syrian crisis. They must move soon or rebel forces which include Al Qaeda and ISIS troops will be destroyed by Syrian, Russian and Iranian forces that now threaten Aleppo and soon Raqqa which will end the civil war in Syria once and for all. The latest reports indicate about 350,000 troops, 2,000 tanks, 2,400 airplanes and over 400 helicopters are massing in northern Saudi Arabia. If this force invades Syria it is possible Russia may be forced to utilize tactical nukes to stop them. Once that line has been breached there is no telling where it might end.
Let the difficulties in Venezuela be a fair warning of what can happen when the system no longer works properly and you are left to your own devices to get by. The ability to care for yourself is critical when large systems fail. When they fail everything you normally depend on stops and no amount of wishful thinking will change things. If you cannot touch it, you will not have it. A smart man learns from his mistakes. A genius learns from other peoples mistakes. Learn now or pay dearly later.
Globalists Inducing "End Game For America" As More Signs Emerge 2016 Is The Year It All Comes Crashing Down
Across the country and the world we're witnessing signs 2016 will be the year the globalists bring America crashing down. The signs we see of preparation for the 'end have been documented many times on ANP and as we learn in the videos and stories referenced below, everything that we've been warning about is now accelerating. The globalists see a rapidly closing window with an 'awakening America' and Donald Trump looming in the background, ready to undo much of what they've 'accomplished' for America.
Between promising to take on NAFTA to Trump going after 'Obamatrade' to his promise to undue 'Obamacare' to promising to audit the Federal Reserve as shared in this story from Snyder, will Obama, Clinton and the globalists allow any of those things to happen via Trump? The fact that Trump has also recently stated that if he becomes , he will prosecute as shared in the 1st video below and he will address the federal government land grab that has been going on out West for many years with the Feds owning a huge percentage of the land leads us to believe that a 'Trump presidency' may never be 'allowed' to happen. The globalists who are watching and allowing the Chinese to just 'buy up' America while the American middle class is totally dismantled simply have too much too lose with Trump in the White House and an 'America great again'. Remember, according to Deagel.com, America will be merely but a decaying shell of what we are now and what we once were by 2025.
The signs we're watching they're rapidly inducing the 'end game' for America include economic news, and more unfolding news on the WW3 front as we know, when they can no longer hold the economy together, they will bring in war. Could it be upon American soil? The collapsing economy is bringing in more talk of a cashless society and as we learn directly below in the new SQAlert, those who want to get rid of the $100 bill are walking a very slippery slope.:
Michael Snyder of the Economic Collapse Blog joins Greg Hunter from USA Watchdog in the 2nd video below to talk with us about this 'perfect storm of financial collapse' we're watching unfolding before us including the signs we're watching that the beginning of World War 3 could be soon. Snyder tells us that one fifth of the stock is already gone in this 'process' called collapse yet we still have four fifths of the value to go. Telling us that we've already seen junk bonds and oil collapse and are now witnessing the collapse of commodities and now the biggest bank in the biggest and most important economy in Europe is on the verge of coming apart.
Erdogan's policies will adversely affect Turkey's relations with the United States, particularly after Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu called on Washington to give Ankara unconditional support in its fight against the Syrian Kurds, Turkey's former ambassador to Iran, Norway, Sweden, Germany and France Osman Korutürk told S
Davutoglu made the comments after a terrorist attack in Ankara claimed 29 lives. The Turkish leadership blamed the US-backed People's Protection Units (YPG) for the attack, which the Syrian Kurds say they did not commit.
The United States does not view the YPG or the Democratic Union Party (PYD) as terrorist organizations. Moreover, the Kurds have proved to be one of Washington's key allies in its anti-Daesh efforts in Iraq and Syria.
Washington has set a trap for impulsive Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, US journalist Mike Whitney notes, adding that a 'color revolution' in Turkey may one day become a reality.
On February 19 Washington dismissed a draft resolution by Russia aimed at preventing a Turkish invasion of Syria at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC); by making move the Obama administration is in fact giving the green light to Ankara's ground operation in Syria, US independent journalist Mike Whitney believes.
Although it is believed that Recep Tayyip Erdogan has "dictatorial powers" and can launch the much-discussed ground operation in northern Syria whenever he wants, it is not true: Turkish generals do not want to bear the responsibility for invading a sovereign state. Therefore, Ankara is seeking either US/NATO or the UN's blessing, the journalist explains.
"The ultimate objective would be to foment sufficient social unrest to incite a color-coded revolution that would dispose of the troublemaking Erdogan in a Washington-orchestrated coup, much like the one the CIA executed in Kiev," he stresses.
American researcher, historian and strategic risk consultant F. William Engdahl shares the similar stance. The historian has repeatedly warned that Washington's cunning geostrategists have set a trap for both Erdogan and King Salman in Syria and Iraq.
As a result, "the trap will likely see the map of the entire Middle East redrawn fundamentally for the first time since the secret… Sykes-Picot Plan," the historian stresses.
And there is a good reason to think such a trap is not a "conspiracy theory."
Whitney draws historic parallels between the ongoing Syrian conflict and the Gulf War of 1990-1991.
