An Economic Commentary On Our Times And How We Are Rapidly Approaching An End To The Age Of Grace And The Beginning Of The Messianic Age – Part 1


In the Bible we read of a short period of time at the End of the Age of Grace, or as some refer to it, the Church Age, and the beginning of a new age – the Millennium.   That transition period is referred to as the Tribulation, and it consists of a 7 year period that ends with the return of Jesus to reign on earth for 1,000 years.  Suffice it to say, things will have gotten really bad on earth as we finally begin that countdown to the return of Jesus.

That is what I want to discuss in this multi-part series.  My discussion of the matter won’t deal exclusively with the things we read in the Bible, rather I want to focus on economic things; political alignments, both domestically, and in the geo-political sense; decades long efforts to consolidate wealth; and I want to explain how futile it is for us to make any attempt to participate in our political system today.  This essay will be an eclectic journey into the world most of us don’t even know exists – and I am not talking of some sort of parallel dimension, rather I am talking about the things that go on in our world every day that are agenda driven, and that will inevitably be the catalyst that ushers in that very short period of time known as the Tribulation.

A short walk back in time

In 1966, Carroll Quigley wrote a book entitled Tragedy and Hope:  A History of the World in Our Time.  In its current release it is 964 pages long.  Here is what one reviewer wrote about the book:

This tome reveals the inner workings and machinations of leaders in each country and how they worked behind the scenes to control the operations of the country politically and economically. Great read. The book was so revealing that after it was published and started to become popular the publisher stopped publishing it and suppressed the book. You will see how Quigley by accident uncovered what the insiders did not want to be revealed.

Quigley was a Georgetown professor of history, and a mentor to Bill Clinton.  In his book he does indeed describe the “inner workings and machinations of leaders.”  Here are a few quotes from Quigley – not necessarily from his book – that inform us:

“For the first time in its history, Western Civilization is in danger of being destroyed internally by a corrupt, criminal ruling cabal which is centered around the Rockefeller interests, which include elements from the Morgan, Brown, Rothschild, Du Pont, Harriman, Kuhn-Loeb, and other groupings as well. This junta took control of the political, financial, and cultural life of America in the first two decades of the twentieth century.”

“The Council on Foreign Relations is the American branch of a society which originated in England … [and] … believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.”

“Each central bank sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.”

“Inflation, especially a slow steady rise in prices, encourages producers, because it means that they can commit themselves to costs of production on one price level and then, later, offer the finished product for sale at a somewhat higher price level. This situation encourages production because it gives confidence of an almost certain profit margin.”

“The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences.”

Those quotes speak volumes of truth on what is going on behind the scenes, unbeknownst to the masses, but designed by the moneyed class to control every aspect of societies around the world, and it is indeed their control of vast amounts of money that allow them to do the things they do to enrich themselves, and to empower themselves.  Furthermore, the people exert no control at all, although the perception by some is that their vote does matter.  Here is what Quigley had to say about the two party system:

“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.” 

Carroll Quigley died in 1977 so all the things he said over 40 years ago can be compared to the events that have happened since then to understand just how incredibly accurate Quigley was in describing what he referred to as a “corrupt, criminal, ruling cabal.”  As current time validation that all the things Quigley said are true, in a 2014 research paper entitled Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens, Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page arrived at the following conclusion on who controls government policy:

The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence. Our results provide substantial support for theories of Economic-Elite Domination and for theories of Biased Pluralism, but not for theories of Majoritarian Electoral Democracy or Majoritarian Pluralism.

In 1991 we see the “cabal” Quigley spoke of emerge from the shadows.  They were apparently so confident at that time of their plans for a one world government that there was no reason to remain in the shadows.  Sometimes we hear words spoken that are so profound, so seminal in time that we repeat them over and over.  The words David Rockefeller spoke back in 1991 fit into that grouping of profound and seminal words.  Here is what he said:

We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a World Government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries

David Rockefeller to Trilateral Commission in 1991

Here is further confirmation that a “cabal” had been working for decades to bring about a one world government just as Quigley warned 20 years earlier.  This quote comes directly from Rockefeller’s published memoirs in 2002:

Some even believe we [Rockefeller family] are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – One World, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.

David Rockefeller

If I insert a video link, I usually do it at the end of my essay, but this video needs to be viewed in context.  Click on it and watch – it is the short 10 minute version of the full length video that is 1 ½ hours in length.

Aaron Russo, in my opinion, is entirely credible.  His detractors launched an all-out assault on his credibility by painting him with the conspiracy theorist brush which is what always happens when someone gains traction in terms of exposing the negative aspects of the globalist plans.  As long as a truth teller can be held at bay – that is, his message is only reaching a small sector of the population – they are left alone.  Russo crossed over that line of demarcation, thus requiring an army of detractors to start their attacks on his credibility.

But, the real test of his credibility is to look at the world we live in through the lens of his alleged conspiratorial rantings.  We can do it this way – we can say this is what Aaron Russo said, is it true?  Or, this is what he said – is that true?  Well, these are just a few of the things he said:

  • He said there is a cabal working to establish a one world government.
  • He said 9/11 was a hoax, a false flag.
  • He said that there is a plan to implant microchips in people and do away with traditional bank accounts as well as physical currency.

Well, we know there is a cabal in place to establish a one world government.  How do we know?  Well, one of the most prominent businessmen and bankers of our times – David Rockefeller – told us so, and he even used the word “cabal” when he admitted to being a part of that conspiratorial group.

How about 9/11 – was that a false flag event?  According to the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth it was absolutely a false flag.  Was it the event Nick Rockefeller spoke about to Aaron Russo?  Well, we don’t know with certainty that Nick Rockefeller talked to Aaron Russo about this – all we have is Russo’s word for it.  I believe Russo, but the fact remains, we can’t prove he is telling the truth.  What we can prove is that 9/11 was a false flag event.  The best I could do on this one is the following video.  It is a little long, but well worth the time as the evidence presented in this video – by architects and engineers – is beyond any sort of credible refutation.

The official government explanation was a bald face lie, and you will not take exception to that statement if you take the time to watch this video.  It is long, about one hour – and at about the 48 minute mark you here a woman explaining her emotional reaction to the idea that her government would be complicit in this false flag event, and there is no rational way after watching this video, and looking at the evidence that you can conclude anything other than what she concluded – our own government was in fact complicit.

And, what makes it much more alarming is the fact that to this day, and in spite of irrefutable evidence, nobody in Congress has done anything about it.  Surely most of our senators and representatives have seen the evidence, and nobody in their right mind would have the audacity to challenge the legitimacy of these architects and engineers – there are just to many of them, and all making the same claim.

Attacking Aaron Russo by calling him a conspiracy theory nutcase is one thing – calling almost the entire community of architects and engineers nutcases is going to make you look like the nutcase.  Yet, nothing!  Who, one has to ask, has the power to silence so many?  It is beyond the comprehension of most of us – yet the facts are the facts.  These towers weren’t brought down by terrorists – at least the ones flying those airplanes on that fateful day.  And, the official story we were told was a lie.

Finally, those we sent to Washington to represent us have somehow been silenced. Again, who has the power to pull such a thing off – to silence so many of our elected officials?  If you don’t listen to the entire video, at least listen to the last 10 minutes.  It deals with the psychology of denial, and the dangers in doing so.  Odds are these psychologists and psychiatrists will be explaining exactly what your own response is when confronted with the truth of 9/11.

So, if the buildings collapse was the result of a controlled demolition, who did it, and why did they do it?  The answer to that question is more involved than I want to get right now.  We will address the subject in more detail in the 2nd part of this multi-part post.

The third thing on the short list above is the elimination of cash across the globe.  Do we have evidence suggesting this is going on, or at least in the planning stage?  There is absolutely a movement in place to do away with cash.  And, the microchip implant, or something like it, is a part of that plan.  For now though, I want to defer to another video.  The simple truth is this – these videos, if well done, do a better job of driving home important points than do words on paper.  In this video, Richie Allen is interviewing German economist Richard Haering as he helps us to connect the dots on how we are moving toward a cashless society, and how tech companies will facilitate the move.  Haering sees Bill Gates as one of the major proponents of such a system.

Haering also explains an experiment in India where roughly 80% of the cash in that economy has been removed.  This isn’t a plan that is on the table, it is a fait accompli – it has been done already, and it has produced incredible hardships on the society, a society where large numbers of the population don’t even have bank accounts.  Keep in mind, we are not talking about a small island country as a test case for what will happen when governments do make the move – we are talking about a country with 1.3 billion people.

At about the 21 minute point in the video Richie Allen states that patented eye scans and cashless payment wrist bands are straight from the pages of George Orwell.  I suggest the more accurate depiction is straight from the pages of the Bible:

Revelation 13:15-17

It was allowed to give breath to the beast’s image so that the beast’s image would even speak and cause anyone who didn’t worship the beast’s image to be put to death. 16 It forces everyone—the small and great, the rich and poor, the free and slaves—to have a mark put on their right hand or on their forehead. 17 It will not allow anyone to make a purchase or sell anything unless the person has the mark with the beast’s name or the number of its name.

This excerpt from a paper authored by Haering further informs us – first on the obvious hardships placed upon the people of India, and second, on the role the US played in this experiment including the American companies who will benefit from a cashless society.

A well-kept open secret: Washington is behind India’s brutal experiment of abolishing most cash

If Rajan was involved in the preparation of this assault to declare most of Indians’ banknotes illegal – and there should be little doubt about that, given his personal and institutional links and the importance of Reserve Bank of India in the provision of cash – he had ample reason to stay in the background. After all, it cannot have surprised anyone closely involved in the matter, which this would result in chaos and extreme hardship, especially for the majority of poor and rural Indians, who were flagged as the supposed beneficiaries of the badly misnamed drive for “financial-inclusion”. USAID and partners had analysed the situation extensively and found in the Beyond-Cash report that 97% of transactions were done in cash and that only 55% of Indians had a bank account. They also found that even of these bank accounts, “only 29% have been used in the last three months“.

All this was well known and made it a certainty that suddenly abolishing most cash would cause severe and even existential problems to many small traders and producers and to many people in remote regions without banks. When it did, it became obvious, how false the promise of financial inclusion by digitalization of payments and pushing back cash has always been. There simply is no other means of payment that can compete with cash in allowing everybody with such low hurdles to participate in the market economy.

However, for Visa, MasterCard and the other payment service providers, who were not affected by these existential problems of the huddled masses, the assault on cash will most likely turn out a big success, “scaling up” digital payments in the “trial region”. After this chaos and with all the losses that they had to suffer, all business people who can afford it, are likely to make sure they can accept digital payments in the future. And consumers, who are restricted in the amount of cash they can get from banks now, will use opportunities to pay with cards, much to the benefit of Visa, MasterCard and the other members of the extended Better Than Cash Alliance.

Why Washington is waging a global war on cash

The business interests of the US-companies that dominate the global IT business and payment systems are an important reason for the zeal of the US-government in its push to reduce cash use worldwide, but it is not the only one and might not be the most important one. Another motive is surveillance power that goes with increased use of digital payment. US-intelligence organizations and IT-companies together can survey all international payments done through banks and can monitor most of the general stream of digital data. Financial data tends to be the most important and valuable.

Even more importantly, the status of the dollar as the worlds currency of reference and the dominance of US companies in international finance provide the US government with tremendous power over all participants in the formal non-cash financial system. It can make everybody conform to American law rather than to their local or international rules. German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung has recently run a chilling story describing how that works (German). Employees of a German factoring firm doing completely legal business with Iran were put on a US terror list, which meant that they were shut off most of the financial system and even some logistics companies would not transport their furniture any more. A major German bank was forced to fire several employees upon US request, who had not done anything improper or unlawful.

There are many more such examples. Every internationally active bank can be blackmailed by the US government into following their orders, since revoking their license to do business in the US or in dollar basically amounts to shutting them down. Just think about Deutsche Bank, which had to negotiate with the US treasury for months whether they would have to pay a fine of 14 billion dollars and most likely go broke, or get away with seven billion and survive. If you have the power to bankrupt the largest banks even of large countries, you have power over their governments, too. This power through dominance over the financial system and the associated data is already there. The less cash there is in use, the more extensive and secure it is, as the use of cash is a major avenue for evading this power.

Summarizing Part 1

As I noted in my opening remarks, this multi-part series is going to be an eclectic assortment of facts, that when looked at in isolation don’t necessarily paint a picture of foreboding, but when looked at together, paint a very vivid picture of a time in the near future where we will likely have some kind of event that shocks the world.  My gut feeling is that event could be a stock market crash of epic proportion, although it could materialize in another form – maybe a military encounter of some sort – perhaps with Russia.  Another possibility is the collapse of the European Union.

Attempting to predict what it will be, or when it might occur with any short term specificity is a fool’s play.  That said, I don’t think it is foolish to understand the possible trigger events that might signal the beginning of the Tribulation.  In Part 2 of this series we will discuss some of the specific economic factors that virtually assure me we are going to see an economic implosion at some point in the very near future, and thereafter, we will see plans implemented for ushering in a new era – a feudal construct similar to what Aaron Russo talked about, and one that is more clearly defined by the United Nations Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 plans.

Most of you are probably not aware of these plans, but they do exist, and they are being advanced.  The language of these plans paints a glowing picture of the world we will live in once they are implemented.  On the other hand, biblical prophecy paints an altogether different picture, one where those who refuse to cow-tow to the system will be frozen out of the system – unable to buy goods and services.  No doubt the cashless society experiment in India is coming to the place where you live in the near future. Stay tuned for Part 2 as we investigate further into this New World Order, and how it interfaces with Bible prophecy.
