The time has come… You were told! Your acceptance or rejection will not alter what is about to happen!”

“A voice DID cry out”

A voice did “cry out” - for over 50 years - and for the most part the warning went totally unheeded. But the warning still stands!

The time has come when this world must be warned!

The present strife between major nuclear powers – the constantly accelerating international tensions – the internal upward spiral within nations of crime, race riots, violence of every sort – are combining to plunge the world into a holocaust of destruction and death such as never happened before – and never shall again!

The God of Creation knows human nature and its inevitable END. Every gigantic step in world events from here is pictured in God’s prophecies!( Revelation Unveiled at last!)

Why The American Living Standard IS Going Down!

The following advert appeared in the Wall Street Journal March 9th 1981.

“IT’S TIME we awaken to CAUSES! Human survival has become the world’s No. 1 problem. What brought the world to this frightening brink of human extinction? What brought on the myriad problems, upheavals and evils that engulf the world? And, paradoxically, amid awesome progress?

It’s easy to become so engrossed in the day to-day activities that we overlook underlying impending disasters. It’s no time to fiddle while America and the world are burning!

The ‘GET’ incentive led to competition – too often to strife and violence – between the two divisions of the same company or industry.

It is enormously significant that in those years American mass production enjoyed lower actual production costs because of mass machine production. Other nations could not compete. With labor getting its full share of the enlarged prosperity pie, the American standard of living soared to a high never attained by any people in world history! A huge middle and upper-middle class emerged in the United States.

It is a competitive world. The way of ‘GET’ is the impelling motive! And ‘GET’ is the overall CAUSE of all world troubles and evils!( The Worldwide News – February 23, 1981)

Huge Middle Class Now Fading Into History

That “huge middle and upper-middle class” is now disappearing – fast! As the following article points out, they have been destroyed by greedy corporations and banks striving for greater profits.

“When are America’s global corporations and Wall Street going to sit down with President Trump and explain to him that his trade war is not with China but with them? The biggest chunk of America’s trade deficit with China is the offshored production of America’s global corporations. When the corporations bring the products that they produce in China to the US consumer market, the products are classified as imports from China.

In other words, to put it in the most simple and clear terms, millions of Americans lost their middle class jobs not because China played unfairly, but because American corporations betrayed the American people and exported their jobs. ‘Making America great again’ means dealing with these corporations, not with China.

‘Too big to Fail’ Banks Saved

The way the Federal Reserve saved the irresponsible large banks, which should have failed and have been broken up, was to raise the prices of troubled assets on the banks’ books by lowering interest rates.

To achieve its aim, the Federal Reserve had to lower the interest rates to zero, which even the low reported inflation reduced to negative interest rates. These low rates had disastrous consequences. On the one hand low interest rates caused all sorts of speculations. On the other low interest rates deprived retirees of interest income on their retirement savings, forcing them to draw down capital, thus reducing accumulated wealth among the 90 percent. The under-reported inflation rate also denied retirees Social Security cost-of-living adjustments, forcing them to spend retirement capital.

The low interest rates also encouraged corporate boards to borrow money in order to buy back the corporation’s stock, thus raising its price and, thereby, the bonuses and stock options of executives and board members and the capital gains of shareholders. In other words, corporations indebted themselves for the short-term benefit of executives and owners. Companies that refused to participate in this scam were threatened by Wall Street with takeovers.

Consequently today the combination of offshoring and Federal Reserve policy has left us a situation in which every aspect of the economy is indebted — consumers, government at all levels, and businesses. A recent Federal Reserve study concluded that Americans are so indebted and so poor that 41 percent of the American population cannot raise $400 without borrowing from family and friends or selling personal possessions.

A country whose population is this indebted has no consumer market. Without a consumer market there is no economic growth, other than the false orchestrated figures produced by the US government by under-counting the inflation rate and the unemployment rate.

Without economic growth, consumers, businesses, state, local, and federal governments cannot service their debts and meet their obligations. The Federal Reserve has learned that it can keep afloat the Ponzi scheme that is the US economy by printing money with which to support financial asset prices.

Normally so much money creation by the Federal Reserve, especially in conjunction with such a high debt level of the US government and also state and local governments, consumers, and businesses, would cause a falling US dollar exchange rate. Why hasn’t this happened?

…the central banks of the other three reserve currencies — the Japanese central bank, the European central bank, and the Bank of England — also print money. Their Quantitative Easing, which still continues, offsets the dollars created by the Federal Reserve and keeps the US dollar from depreciating.( paulcraigroberts.org)

Some Can See The Problem…

The US economy may find itself in dire straits, unless measures are taken as soon as possible , the US Office of Government Accountability (GAO) warned the US Congress on June 21, 2018.

‘According to the 2017 Financial Report, the federal deficit in fiscal year 2017 increased to $666 billion — up from $587 billion in fiscal year 2016 and $439 billion in fiscal year 2015. Federal receipts increased by $48 billion, but that was outweighed by a $127 billion increase in spending, driven by Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, and interest on debt held by the public (net interest),’ the congressional watchdog noted, stressing that ‘the longer action is delayed, the greater and more drastic the changes will have to be.’

On March 15, 2018, the US national debt exceeded $21 trillion for the first time in history.

‘If you don’t start doing it now, then in ten years you’ll have no choice. You can inflate your currency, you can default on your debt, you can try to raise your taxes and kill your economy — these are the choices that we’ll be looking at in about eight to ten years,’ [Congressman Andy] Biggs said, emphasizing that short-term pain is the least evil to fix the problem. For comparison’s sake Russia’s national debt — one of the lowest in the world — is currently 18.7 percent of GDP or $525 billion.

On June 24, The Chicago Tribune published a letter by one of its readers, eloquently titled: ‘Is anyone in Washington worried about the national debt?’

‘Federal deficits have been prevalent for many years now, but our current debt is staggering and almost unfathomable,’ Michael Imhof from Aurora wrote. ‘Spending needs to be pulled in because America is on a train speeding toward national ruin. Pray for America to slow this train’.” ( sputniknews.com)

Why AMERICA Is Going Down!

The “get” way of life is now firmly entrenched in America, not just in trade and finance, but in politics as well!

There was a time when Americans could disagree with each other without hating each other – not any more! The situation is now so bad that some think that America is heading for a civil war!

“The United States is heading towards civil war, Congressman Steve King has warned. His sentiments are mirrored by a troubling new poll which shows that 31% of Americans believe a second civil war is likely in the next five years.

The Republican congressman from Iowa made his eyebrow-raising comment in response to a report about protesters occupying an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office in Portland, Oregon. He tweeted that ‘America is heading in the direction of another Harpers Ferry,’ adding that ‘after that comes Fort Sumter.’

Jesus Christ warned:

Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.(Matthew 12:25)

King was referring to the siege of Fort Sumter in the harbor of Charleston, South Carolina in April 1861, which marked the start of the Civil War. Harper’s Ferry was a Virginia town where militant abolitionist John Brown led a raid against a federal armory in October 1859, in a failed attempt to spark a slave uprising.

Upheaval over US President Donald Trump’s ‘zero-tolerance’ immigration policy, as well as a child detention practice which was reversed last week via executive order, has left America deeply divided.

And while many Americans appear to be bracing for some kind of violent internal conflict, others believe that the second civil war has already begun. Tennessee Law Professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds argued in a recent USA Today column that a new civil war is ‘well underway,’ while Bloomberg columnist Thomas Schaller declared that America was ‘at the beginning of a soft civil war.’ But pundits aren’t the only ones raising the alarm: Provocative statements about the rise of ‘fascism’ and the need for ‘revolution’ have become commonplace among American actors, musicians and activists.” ( rt.com)

America: Torn Apart From Within?

“Civil conflict is coming to America, and it is going to tear our nation apart. In my entire lifetime, we have never been closer to a ‘civil war’ in this country than we are right now. Let us work for peace, but it would be foolish to ignore the forces that are ripping the fabric of our society to shreds. In this day and age, the coming conflict will not be between two armies from specific geographical locations. Rather, it will be between groups of Americans with fundamentally different ideologies. However, just like in our first civil war, American cities will burn before it is all said and done.

First there will be massive protests, then there will be widespread violence, and ultimately there will be mobs of lunatics running around smashing things, looting, stealing, killing and setting things on fire. I have been warning about where we are heading as a society on The Economic Collapse Blog for quite a long time, but now the warnings about a coming ‘civil war’ are becoming very loud in the mainstream media.

Civil wars don’t emerge out of a vacuum. You can usually see them coming a long way away, and they are the result of tensions that build up over a long period of time. America is a very deeply divided nation, and it is getting worse with each passing day. The left has already shown that they are willing to become very violent when push comes to shove, and what we have seen so far is just the small tip of a very large iceberg.( theeconomiccollapseblog.com)

The Media Stoking Division In America

“When President Trump tweeted ‘The FAKE NEWS media is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!’ the media quickly went ballistic.

Wolf Blitzer, speaking on behalf of CNN, replied: ‘A lot of his supporters believe that we are the enemy of the American people, and that is really an awful situation. We are not the enemy of the American people. We love the American people.’

The media loves the American people?

The media may love some Americans, but certainly not Trump voters. How else to explain the increasing frequency with which Republicans, and Trump voters specifically, are described on air as racist, Nazis, and undeserving of common courtesy (such as eating a dinner without being harassed)?

The frequent media invocations of ‘racism’ and ‘Nazi’ to describe conservatives and Republicans is leading some to worry that the media is needlessly stoking division in America, perhaps risking increased episodes of harassment and violence.

When the Virginia restaurant, The Red Hen, on Saturday kicked out Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family due to her affiliation with the Trump Administration, some in the media defended the provocative act. CNN’s Symone Sanders, for example, endorsed the Red Hen’s actions and said people ‘calling for civility need to check their privilege.’

‘I believe movements and people talking and speaking up for things, whether we’re talking about the civil rights movement, whatever else,’ Sanders continued, ‘those movements should be non-violent but not non-confrontational.’

MSNBC contributor Zerlina Maxwell likewise endorsed refusing service to conservatives.

‘These policies that this administration is putting forth are intentionally cruel,’ she said Monday. ‘They are racist. It is our job as citizens to speak out against that. Now, does that mean that we are going to be violent? No. But does that mean that Sarah Sanders can have a nice quiet dinner with her family when she is taking our tax dollars to implement this policy? I don’t think so’.” ( news.grabien.com)

What This World Cannot Understand - Wicked Spirits Are In Control

“Whether or not human beings like to admit it, the Bible plainly teaches that supernatural powers control and operate this world. The apostle Paul was inspired to write that human beings must struggle ‘against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against wicked spirits in high places’ (Ephesians 6:12, Authorized Version, marginal reading).” ( The Good News – August 1984)

Now – Threats Of Violence!

The left is actually warning the country of bombings. The left has gone from harassing and abusing Republicans at restaurants to bomb threats in less than one week!

This Is Just The Beginning…

Do you think that being asked to leave a restaurant, or having your meal interrupted, or being called by the public is bad? My fascism-enabling friends, this is only the beginning…

Read a recent history book. The US had thousands of domestic bombings per year in the early 1970s. This is what happens when citizens decide en masse that their political system is corrupt, racist, and unresponsive. The people out of power have only just begun to flex their dissatisfaction. The day will come, sooner that you all think, when Trump administration officials will look back fondly on the time when all they had to worry about was getting hollered at at a Mexican restaurant.

Stop working for this man. Stop enabling him. Stop assisting him. Start fighting him. The people who are responsible for what is happening are not going to get out of this with their happy wealthy respectable lives unscathed.” ( 12160.info)

The Left Needs To Face Reality

“To understand the madness gripping American leftists, try to see the world through their eyes. Presto, you’re now part of the raging resistance. Like the Palestinians who mark Israel’s birth as their Nakba, or tragedy, you regard Donald Trump’s 2016 victory as a catastrophe. It’s the last thing you think of most nights, and the first thing most mornings. You can’t shake it or escape it. Whatever you watch, listen to or read, there are reminders — Donald Trump really is President.

In the fifth century BC, Greek dramatist Aeschylus said,

In war, truth is the first casualty.( internationalman.com)

You actually believe The New York Times is too nice to him, so you understand why a Manhattan woman urged a reporter there to stop covering Trump to protest his presidency. And now this —Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring, and Trump gets another Supreme Court pick. The court might tilt right for the rest of your life. He’s winning. NOOOOOOOOO!!!

Their loathing for Trump is bone-deep and all consuming. This is war and they take no prisoners. For most marchers, border policies offer a chance to vent. They didn’t make a peep when Obama did the same thing.

Instead, they give in to Trump Derangement Syndrome, which causes them to immediately and absolutely adopt the opposite position of the president’s — facts and common sense be damned.( nypost.com)

Where Are We Now?

The Wall Street Journal article of 1981 concludes…

It is a competitive world. The way of ‘GET’ is the impelling motive! And ‘GET’ is the overall CAUSE of all world troubles and evils!

Abraham Lincoln knew, and said, we Americans did not come to our unprecedented prosperity and affluence of our own efforts. The Great God bestowed it on us - and is holding us ACCOUNTABLE! We have not used this unearned material birthright according to God’s basic spiritual Law of Love (‘GIVE’). It is now being taken away from us!

It’s time we WAKE UP - and THINK! This is no impractical or superstitious maudlin religious statement. It is the hard cold facts that stare us in the face!

We are going to be made to pay for our transgressions of the basic spiritual LAW of life set in just as relentless motion as the power of gravity!

Then, not because we deserve it, that super strong ‘Unseen Hand from Someplace’ is going to intervene, and save this beloved country – and the world – from ourselves!

It will not be done by us, but to us - ushering in the utopian WORLD TOMORROW – world peace, happiness, universal well-being, eternal salvation for all who will!

The time has come! A voice cries out! You have been told! Your acceptance or rejection will not alter what is about to happen!( The Worldwide News – February 23, 1981)
