Many people are spinning wild scenarios around the current US situation, tying it to every conspiracy theory ever propagated. ...US Treasury to become effective Dictator...Detention camps (Rex 84) built throughout the US...UN vehicles seen being prepositioned at US staging sites...black unmarked military style helicopters seen over parts of the US...US elections to be canceled due to (insert emergency type here: multiple natural disasters, economic, terrorism threat) making US president effective dictator...trilateral commission crashing US economy to devalue currency and force regional adoption of Amero - then to merge with Euro for a one world currency and financial control...CFR (council on foreign relations) operating beyond congressional control to foment (insert world event here: war, terrorism, anti-terrorism, world domination)...Russia is controlling the weather and particularly hurricane patterns & strength to weaken the US and destroy US oil resources...the Illuminati have infiltrated the highest levels of everything and are marshaling all world resources to their one world dictatorial scheme...
Mix in a few religious and/or racist overtones, and you get da joos are causing it, or the devil is causing it, the Rothschild's, or the merged Shabtai Tzvi & Frankist descendants, the aryans who escaped after WWII, or wait I almost forgot the Freemasons, no no no, the Shriners, or maybe its....da jews!!!!
Friends, take a deep breath. We need to point a few things out.
America is broken. It has spent the last 40 years shutting down it's own industries, selling off it's assets, and transferring it's wealth overseas. It was able to sell itself as the dream, and most of that wealth circled back to invest itself into America. But it's over. The pyramid of debt, massively increased by the last 10 years of spending growth and debt to pay for it by the US government and a corresponding massive personal spending growth paid for with an impossibly high amount of personal leveraged debt, the pyramid has exceeded the ability of the foundation to support it. The foundation was sold off, shut down, sent overseas, the foundation was whittled away while more was piled on the top.
The supports holding it all up were foreign reinvestment. But something funny happened, the foreigners decided to start investing some of their money at home. With some of the supports removed, the pile (no longer a pyramid with a nice supporting base, now an unstable tower) started to fall.
With it, the foreign investment cycle supporting it all has ended. Even if a true crash is stopped, the reality perceived no longer matches the dream and the investment cycle, the foreign support, is simply over. No longer will the world finance massive US government debt - or corporate debt - or personal debt at ultra-cheap rates. The US, the tower of babbling debt, is too risky. That giant tower built on cheap supports with the foundation sold off and pocketed will now incur a much higher support cost.
Meaning: Those debt bills are now due in full, and will get paid over the next couple of years.
That's what there is to worry about. Massive business closure, job loss, bank closure, home loss, governments being forced to work within their means - which includes paying the current debt bill, all the way up to economic shutdown. In other words - a full fledged crash and depression.
In the midst of this (interesting timing, huh) we've got Russia on the rampage, a Haman HaRasha in Iran who wants to blow up the world (but Israel first) to bring the Islamic end of days and has the material in hand to do it, the US financial crisis leading to a major US and * world * economic decline, and an Islamic movement that wants to crush the West and doesn't mind sacrificing their own lives to do so.
Regardless of whether we are in the time of the geulah or not, EVERY nation the Jews have prospered in and assimilated into - every Jewish golden age - has ended unpleasantly. You DON'T need conspiracy level stuff to have a complete disaster on your hands. Concerns about Barak Obama, or a Bush dictatorship, election conspiracies, weather control, the Illumanti or tri-lateral commission or Council on Foreign Relations running the US from the inside, all pale beside the REALITIES going on.
Whether we are in the chevlay Moshiach or not, we have moved from a time of world stability to a more chaotic time. Simple wisdom suggests planning appropriately.
