"Pope Warns Global Economy Near Collapse"

While the US was obsessing over the Washington Redskins dropping their "racist" name, Pope Francis was busy trying to wake up the sheeple.

"Our world economic system can't take it anymore," he told Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia. "We discard a whole generation to maintain an economic system that no longer endures."

"Inequality is the root of social evil," he recently tweeted and during a UN address he said, "Equitable economic progress will be made by the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the state."

Liberals are crazy about the guy and conservatives blast him as a socialist.

The real question? Is he right about the global economy? Is he correct in assuming that what goes up, must come down?

Financial expert James Rickards, author of the best-selling book, The Death of Money predicts "...the coming collapse of the the international monetary system."

"We are on the precipice now," says Rickards. "The mistakes have already been made. The instability is already in the system; we are just waiting for a catalyst. It's coming because the instability is already here."

Rickards explains, "It is the thing you won't see coming that will take the system down."

According to Rickards: "The international monetary system has collapsed three times in the past hundred years. Each collapse was followed by a period of tumult, war, civil unrest."

Pope Francis has challenged the world's business-elite to do more to help the poor and vulnerable. If James Rickards' predictions prove correct, they're going to be needing all the help they can get.

James Rickards on financial collapse...

A wise man once said: "One of the greatest disservices you can do to a man is to lend him money he can't pay back." --Jesse H. Jones, US Secretary of Commerce

"Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.' That is why we can say with confidence, 'The LORD is my helper, so I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?'" (Hebrews 13:5-6)

"'Common Core': Revolutionary Reform or Ominous Foreshadow?"

The school year of 2014-15 will see the full implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in most school districts. If you have school-aged children or grandchildren, you better hang on to your hats.

According to Truth in Education:
"There will be a massive data tracking system on each child with over 400 points of information collected. This information can be shared among organizations and companies and parents don't have to be informed about what data is being collected. They will collect information such as: Your child's academic records, health care history, disciplinary record, family income range, family voting status, and religious affiliation, to name a few. Big Brother will be watching your child from pre-school till college (P-20 Longitudinal Data System). You, the parent, are UNABLE to opt your child out of this tracking system."
Got your attention?

(The above quote is a negative spin on the P-20 Longitudinal Data System (SLDS). For the positive spin, click on the link: P20 Longitudinal Data System

Common Core, a sweeping educational system touted by its proponents as a "revolutionary new way to teach our children" and "fundamentally flawed" by its opponents, will change this nation forever. For instance: The curriculum replaces the classics with government propaganda! (More on that in a future blog).

The Land of the Free and Home of the Brave is about to become alot less free.

With such comprehensive data systems, the government will soon have a file on everyone now in the school system (including teachers and those being home-schooled).

SLDS is a citizen tracking system, and a grant program that rewards states financially for participating. It's also called P-20, which means pre-school through age 20. In other words, they continue tracking into college and/or the workforce.

The government claims this data will be kept confidential except as permitted by federal/state law. What's that suppose to mean? Except if they decide not to?

While the ramifications of Common Core are epic, we chose to zero in on P-20 because we found it to be the most disturbing of its mandates.

Listen up Mom and Dad: It's time to do your homework. Revolutionary education reform may be needed, but Common Core isn't all it's cracked-up to be. P-20 and some of the other worrisome aspects of this system (stay tuned) seem like an ominous foreshadow of things to come.

A wise man once said:
"We are rapidly entering the age of no privacy, where everyone is open to surveillance at all times; where there are no secrets from government." -- William O. Douglas, Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court
"Here is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey His command, for this is the duty of every person. God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad" (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).

"Pope Francis & Revelation 17"

What do Jews, Muslims, Mormons and Catholics all have in common?

Not much, unless of course you happen to be the new Pope. Then they are all one big happy family, with invites to the Vatican to pray.

During his recent visit to the Middle East, Pope Francis made an historic call for unity: He invited Israeli Jewish and Muslim leaders to join him at the Vatican, which they did on June 8th, Pentecost Sunday.

An impressive delegation of rabbis, Islamic imams and Catholic Cardinals, met with the Pontiff for an inter-religious gathering to pray for peace in the Middle East.

Not to rain on the Pope's parade, but is he oblivious to the Bible's predictions of a one-world religious system?

And is he unaware of the fact that most interpreters understand the seven mountains of Revelation 17 to be a reference to the seven hills along the Tiber River, a well-known designation of the city of Rome?

Last October Pope Francis went out of his way to call the Vatican system "a woman" and "a mother".

Is he completely out of the loop? Google Pope Francis and the false prophet to see what Revelation 17, which is famously connected in the minds of most biblically-literate people with the Vatican says:
"And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. And upon her forehead a name (was) written , Mystery, Babylon the Great, The Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth" (Revelation 17:4-5 emphasis added).

With the pedophile priest debacle still fresh in the public mind, the Vatican makes a popular target in regards to the above scripture.

Sometimes, it seems like Pope Francis is unwittingly (?) adding fuel to the fire.

A wise man once said:
"It is the bouden duty of every Christian to pray against Antichrist, and as to what Antichrist is no sane man ought to raise a question. If it be not the Popery of the Church of Rome there is nothing in the world that can be called by that name." -- Charles Haddon Spurgeon

"Has Obama Gone Rogue?"

The President broke the law over the weekend, defied Congress and set a dangerous precedent: He negotiated with terrorists.

All on his own, he decided to swap 5 terrorists in Guantanamo Bay for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who has been held captive in Afghanistan by the Taliban for the last five years.

The problem? America does not do business with terrorists.

According to the Council on Foreign Relations,
"The argument against negotiating with terrorists is simple: Democracies must never give in to violence, and terrorists must never be rewarded for using it. Negotiations give legitimacy to terrorists and their methods undermine actors who have pursued political change through peaceful means. Talks can destabilize systems, undercut international efforts to outlaw terrorism, and set a dangerous precedent."
Oh, and the five terrorists our President decided to set free? High-level Taliban militants, who Senator John McCain (R-AZ) said were "possibly responsible for the deaths of thousands."

Not to mention there is a legal requirement to give Congress 30 days advance notice when prisoners are released from the detainee facility at Guantanamo Bay.

The Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) said,
"Some notion that this was so secret and so sensitive that that couldn't be done is just wrong."

And then there's the little matter regarding Sgt. Bergdahl's fellow soldiers. It seems many of them believe Bowe was captured by the Taliban while deserting his platoon and may have actually collaborated with the enemy.

Traitorous allegations have surfaced to muddy the waters even further and must be investigated despite the White House attempts to make him a hero.

One thing is clear: Obama has unilaterally decided to throw US policy of "never negotiating with terrorists" out the window. Politico calls his non-compliance with the law "going rogue." They think that is good. We think it's dangerous.

A wise man once said:
"America will never negotiate with terrorists." -- every US President in history (until now)
"And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret."  (Ephesians 5:11-12)
