Recession Stories: Is There A Hidden Political Agenda?

USA - All of a sudden, it seems like the mainstream media just can’t stop talking about “the coming recession”. If you go to Google News and type in the word “recession”, you will literally get dozens of articles from the last couple of days with “recession” in the headline. And of course it is true that there are signs of global economic trouble all around us, and I have been documenting them on my website all throughout 2019. So we don’t want to criticize the mainstream media when they actually decide to tell the truth, because a recession is definitely coming, but could it be possible that there is also a hidden political agenda at work?

Trump Threatens to Pull US Out of World Trade Organization

USA - US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that the United States may pull out of the World Trade Organization (WTO), following what he claims are years of mistreatment at the hands of the organization. "We will leave if we have to", Trump said during a campaign rally in Pittsburgh. "They have been screwing us for years, and it's not going to happen any longer". Trump said the United States does not need the WTO if the organization fails to address loopholes that favor certain nations.

Norwegians on collision course with EU

NORWAY - Norway could be on collision course with the EU in the next few weeks with eurosceptic parties aiming for huge gains in the Scandinavian country’s local elections. Norwegians will head to the polls on September 9 to vote in their next government, with three anti-EU parties keen to drop the nation's membership of the European Economic Area (EEA). The right-wing populist Progress Party, Centre Party, and the left-wing Socialist Left Party are hoping to make gains at the polls, which could mean they could be influential in forming the next government. This could see Norway on collision course with the EU if any of the three parties, who are calling for Norway to leave the EEA, form a coalition with the leading centre-left Labour Party. Although Norway is not a member of the EU, it is part of the EEA. As a member of the EEA, Norway has access to the single market so has to abide by EU laws and regulations when it comes to trade.

 
US House Foreign Affairs panel threatens ‘swift consequences’

USA - Any violence used against “peaceful protesters” in Hong Kong would be a “mistake” for China and will trigger a “swift” response, a congressional foreign affairs panel has warned, insisting Beijing is responsible for the unrest. The ranking members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee – Chairman Eliot Engel (Democrat for New York) and Michael McCaul (Republican for Texas) – issued the warning in a statement on Wednesday, drawing parallels with 1989 protests in Tiananmen Square that ended in bloodshed, also known as the ‘June Fourth Incident’. “We urge China to avoid making such a mistake, which would be met with universal condemnation and swift consequences,” the lawmakers said.

 
China, Russia Look to Each Other for Support

RUSSIA/CHINA - Similarities between the protest movements in Hong Kong and Moscow have not gone unnoticed by the authoritarian rulers of China and Russia. Russia’s state-run Tass news service on Wednesday quoted the new Chinese ambassador calling for the two countries to “cultivate our relations at a higher level” and “open a new page” in their friendship. Zhang issued a warning from Moscow on Wednesday that Hong Kong is not “American” or “English” but Chinese, so the US and UK should not “stick their noses in our affairs.”

 
Google search engine ‘blacklist’

USA - Google appears to have maintained a ‘blacklist’ for dozens of websites on one of its mobile apps, as well as a ‘fringe ranking’ system that scored sites for “quality,” according to documents leaked by a company insider. Published on Wednesday in a report by conservative transparency group Project Veritas, the documents appear to include hundreds of pages of technical details describing Google’s behind-the-scenes projects, as well as internal communications between employees. The insider, Zachary Vorhies, told Project Veritas he spent over a year collecting the documents – noting they were available for any full-time employee to see – and said he feared the American “election system was going to be compromised forever” by Google’s control of the flow of information online. “I saw something dark and nefarious going on with the company and I realized that they were going to not only tamper with the elections, but… to essentially overthrow the United States,” Vorhies said.

 
19 Million Acres Of Farmland Were Not Planted With Crops This Year

USA - If that headline sounds really bad to you, that is because the situation that we are facing is really bad. Over the past few months, I have written article after article about the unprecedented crisis that US farmers are facing this year. In those articles, I have always said that “millions” of acres of farmland did not get planted this year, because I knew that we did not have a final number yet. Well, now we do, and it is extremely troubling. Of course there are some people out there that do not even believe that we are facing a crisis, and a few have even accused me of overstating the severity of the problems that US farmers are currently dealing with. Sadly, things are not as bad as I thought – the truth is that they are even worse. According to the US Department of Agriculture, crops were not planted on 19.4 million acres of US farmland this year.

 
The global gag on free speech is tightening

UK - Last year 25 governments imposed internet blackouts. Choking off connectivity infuriates people and kneecaps economies. Yet autocrats think it worthwhile, usually to stop information from circulating during a crisis. This month the Indian government shut down the internet in disputed Kashmir — for the 51st time this year. “There is no news, nothing,” says Aadil Ganie, a Kashmiri stuck in Delhi, adding that he does not even know where his family is because phones are blocked, too. In recent months Sudan shut down social media to prevent protesters from organising; Congo’s regime switched off mobile networks so it could rig an election in the dark; and Chad nobbled social media to silence protests against the president’s plan to stay in power until 2033.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Death: Inconsistencies

USA - On Saturday the most notorious prisoner in the US prison system committed “suicide.” Since his death we have learned a number of things that make you question this man’s death. Here is a Complete List of Inconsistencies in Prison Policy Surrounding Jeffrey Epstein’s Death:

Those screaming loudest about climate change...

USA - Those screaming loudest about “climate change” are flying around in private jets and living in luxurious, energy-wasting homes. Hollywood A-listers like Leonardo Di Caprio, George Clooney, Harry Styles, Chris Martin, and Katy Perry recently attended a Google Camp to raise awareness about global warming.

Germany's Global Policy Aspiration

GERMANY - German military experts have presented their first concrete plans for an EU naval operation in the Persian Gulf. According to the draft of two well connected government advisors and a Bundeswehr professor, warships should be cruising at the two entrances to the Strait of Hormuz. Supplementary warships should escort oil tankers through the strait with armed troops on board to ward off possible attacks - depending on the disposition to escalate. This would necessitate "between 10 and 30 percent of the EU's naval capacities," and Berlin should be in command of the deployment to demonstrate its aspiration to shape global policy. Whereas sectors of the SPD and the opposition reject the operation, the chancellor and foreign ministry are promoting the plan also within the EU. Previously, Foreign Minster Heiko Maas had rejected the US demand for Germany to deploy warships in a US-led naval mission in the Middle East. Berlin is positioning itself to be an independent power in global politics.

 
The 4th Largest Single Day Point Decline In US Stock Market History

USA - You had better buckle up, because it looks like we are in for a bumpy ride. On Wednesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down a whopping 800 points. Not only was that the worst day of 2019, but as you will see below, there have only been three days in US history that have been worse. An inversion of the yield curve sent investors into panic mode, and the selling was fast and furious. And of course back on August 5th we witnessed a 767 point decline. So this is now the second historic decline that we have seen so far this month, and the month is only about half over.

Equities tumble as global bond yields ‘scream recession’

UK - Financial markets around the world tumbled on Wednesday as a slew of ominous data suggested economies are ­being pushed to the brink of recession by increasing trade tensions. One of the most reliable recession signals flashed red at the same time as Germany’s economy contracted, ­eurozone growth was slashed in half and Chinese factories suffered a shock setback. The US Treasury yield curve – one of the most closely watched harbingers of doom in bond markets – inverted for the first time since the run-up to the ­financial crisis. The Treasury yield curve – the difference in the returns of two-year and 10-year US government bonds – has a formidable track record of predicting US recessions…

 
What Would Happen in an Economic Collapse

USA - If the economy collapses, you would lose access to credit. Banks would close. Demand would outstrip supply of food, gas, and other necessities. If the collapse affected local governments and utilities, then water and electricity would no longer be available. As people panic, they would revert to survival and self-defense modes. The economy would return to a traditional economy, where those who grow food barter for other services. A US economic collapse would create global panic. Demand for the dollar and US Treasury's would plummet. Interest rates would skyrocket. Investors would rush to other currencies, such as the yuan, euro, or even gold. It would create not just inflation, but hyperinflation, as the dollar became dirt cheap.

Argentina: A One Day Stock Market Plunge Of 48%

ARGENTINA - We are watching a complete and utter financial meltdown unfold in Argentina, and many are concerned that the panic could start spreading elsewhere. When you go into way too much debt and you just keep devaluing your currency, this sort of thing is inevitably going to happen, and this is why I am endlessly criticizing the path that the United States is currently on. If we do not reverse course, we will end up just like them. On Monday, we witnessed the second largest one day stock market decline that we have seen anywhere in the world since 1950. It is hard to believe, but the most important stock market index in Argentina actually plummeted 48 percent in a single trading session…

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
