War & Economics – Just Follow the Money

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; You have pointed out that both Republicans and Democrats have voted for wars and they really seem to have no differences on this issue. You have said they use the social issues to distinguish themselves, but war and economics they seem to always agree. Do you have any insight on this phenomenon? Continue reading

The latest World War 3 update has revealed Russia’s plans of attacking the United States in the coming 15 days while German army proceeds towards the Russian border.

According to the reports, Russia is encouraging its navy for final preparation for the international conflict, which shows the nation is all set to attack the Western nation anytime in few weeks. It has been discovered that President Vladimir Putin’s nation has initiated warships that are now cruising close to the North Sea while they plan to cross one mile from British shores in the English Channel. On their way to the Mediterranean, they would launch supportive operations in Syria. Continue reading

How Dangerous Ideas Crumbled France in Six Weeks

The results of relying on the wisdom of man

The outbreak of World War i was met with cheering crowds in Paris. Frenchmen and eager youth jumped at the opportunity to join what they thought would be a short, victorious war. Propagandists sprang into action.

“I hope,” wrote France’s minister of public instruction as teachers prepared for the 1914 academic year, “that on the day schools reopen, in every town and every class, the teacher’s first words to his students will raise their hearts to the fatherland and that his first lesson will honor the sacred battle in which our armies are engaged.” Continue reading

The New World Order

Not to be confused with the “Illuminati” NWO nonsense, which is a Russian red herring, we’re talking about a restructured global leadership and direction based on communism.

 

Recently the Russian military force deployed an advanced anti-missile system and sophisticated radars over Syria. In doing so, Russia and its allies in Iran and Hezbollah realize the ability of the U.S. to assist the rebel groups in Aleppo is severely limited. Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate for president, may not know what Aleppo is, but for anyone following current events this city of 250,000 is now a “killing field.” Continue reading

Major media outlets are starting to notice parallels between modern Europe and the Holy Roman Empire. Are these similarities to be celebrated? Check history.

“The Holy Roman Empire Can Help Inspire a Different European Union.” This was the headline of a January 20 article in the Financial Times of Britain.

Many authorities today believe returning to the ways of the Holy Roman Empire would vastly improve Europe. This reflects a dangerous ignorance of history. Continue reading

Canada’s Military–A Shameful Shadow of Its Once Glorious Past

Canada’s military services can no longer defend the nation’s borders—much less its citizens. According to the new commander of the Royal Canadian Navy, Vice Adm. Ron Lloyd, Canada’s last destroyer, hmcs Athabaskan, will be retired from service in the spring of 2017, leaving the nation to rely on its allies for defense for at least the next seven years. Over the previous decades, Athabaskan and other similar vessels provided the capabilities of command and control for both the Royal Canadian Navy and the area air defense. By next spring, the Navy will be left with only 12 frigates, 12 coast defense vessels and 4 submarines. Canada will need to rely on the United States for its area air defense.

China Seeking to Succeed Where Japan Failed in Yuan Global Push

As China’s yuan takes the first steps toward becoming a global reserve currency, Japan offers a lesson on how hard it is to rival the dollar’s supremacy.

The Japanese yen’s share of global reserves reached a record 8.5 percent in 1991 as the nation’s post-War industrial boom made its economy the world’s second-largest. But its economic decline soon resulted in its clout shrinking as the euro gained ground and the greenback re-asserted its dominance. While the yen is still ranked third for trading and fourth for payments, it now accounts for just 4 percent of world reserves, compared with the dollar’s 64 percent and the yuan’s 1 percent.

War Clouds Are Gathering

 

“The widespread instability in Europe, China, Russia and the Middle East … is something we haven’t seen since before World War ii,” George Friedman wrote earlier this month. From the proliferation of nuclear weapons to America’s waning power, the stage is being set for another world war to suddenly shock the globe—except this time it will be much worse than the previous two world wars. On today’s program, Stephen Flurry explores some of the most dangerous trends that are quickly leading toward World War iii. Continue reading

A New World Power Takes Shape in Europe

 

Seventy years ago, when Germany was in rubble after World War ii, Herbert W. Armstrong boldly proclaimed that it would rise up to lead and dominate a European military power. Most people scoffed at that predication, but now it is happening. After decades of reliance on the United States and nato, the members of the European Union are pushing hard to form their own military force. For more about the latest developments on the European military project and where this will lead Europe, listen to today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show. Continue reading

‘EU is a DICTATORSHIP’ Furious campaigners want to move German state to PUTIN’S RUSSIA

ANGRY residents of a region in Germany have lashed out at the European Union ‘dictatorship’ and launched a petition to move the state to Russian rule.

The petition calls for fellow Saxons to join the campaign to exit Angela Merkel’s nation.

In a statement, the group, known as the Pro-Putin Party, said: “As we have repeatedly and constantly experienced, there is nothing the EU dictatorship committee would recoil from! Continue reading

The Real Russian Mole Inside NSA

The media has finally noticed that the National Security Agency has a problem with Kremlin penetration

Moles—that is, long-term penetration agents—are every intelligence service’s worst nightmare. Though rarer in reality than in spy movies and novels, moles exist and can do enormous damage to a country’s secrets and espionage capabilities. They’re what keep counterintelligence experts awake at night.

The recent appearance on the Internet of top secret hacking tools from the National Security Agency has shined yet another unwanted spotlight on that hard-luck agency, which has been reeling for three years from Edward Snowden’s defection to Moscow after stealing more than a million classified documents from NSA. As I explained, this latest debacle was not a “hack”—rather, it’s a clear sign that the agency has a mole.

Of course, I’ve been saying that for years. It’s not exactly a secret that NSA has one or more Russian moles in its ranks—not counting Snowden. Now the mainstream media has taken notice and we have the “another Snowden” meme upon us. Continue reading

U.S. Position in the Middle East Continues to Decline

While President Barack Obama and his would-be successor Hillary Clinton try to convince the American people that everything is fine in regards to the U.S. position in the world and the security of the nation; foreign adversaries are celebrating what they see as the country’s decline. For example, an August 18 editorial in Global Times, the official media outlet of China’s ruling Communist Party, proclaimed “US suffers new setback in Middle East.” The column hailed its axis partner Russia for basing long-range bombers in Iran to attack targets in Syria in support of the regime of Bashar Assad. It is official Washington policy to remove Assad from power to end Syria’s civil war, but Russian and Iranian military intervention has thwarted the half-hearted, slow-motion effort of the Obama administration to aid the Sunni rebels. “More sadly for Washington” continues the Chinese editorial, “Iraq also consented to the passing-through of Russian military aircraft under some symbolic limits.” This is not surprising given that U.S. policy has allowed Baghdad to become a Shiite satrap of Iran. Though this error goes back to the Bush administration, Obama’s withdrawal of all American troops in 2011 allowed the Iraq regime to openly embrace Tehran. Continue reading

Last month, in a number of speeches, Hossein Salami, deputy commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), focused on the might of Iran’s Islamic Revolution at home and its impact on the region and on the world, and also on threats to it and to the Islamic world by the West and its agent – Sunni Saudi Arabia.

On July 4, 2016, at a Memories of the Iran-Iraq War conference, Salami attributed Islamic Iran’s steadfastness to its independence from the superpowers, to global recognition of its greatness, and to its martyrs. He said that Iran is the only country that challenges the world order and does not submit to the dictates of the superpowers. Continue reading

US-China tension: Maneuvering for pacific front of WW3?

https://www.intellihub.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/2015-11-23_0533.png

 

The US is not the only one building up forces. China has been building artificial islands in the South China Sea’s

US-China tension in the last few months has sharply increased, with both nations exchanging some heated dialogue over the contested issue of the South China Sea. Although the prospect of the US and China actually engaging in battle is still an abstract idea, the notion became a little more concrete recently with the decision of the RAND corporation (long-time New World Order think tank) to release a study entitled War with China – Thinking Through the Unthinkable.
