World Risks Deflationary Shock as BRICS Puncture Credit Bubbles

(Telegraph) – Half the world economy is one accident away from a deflation trap. The International Monetary Fund says the probability may now be as high as 20pc.

It is a remarkable state of affairs that the G2 monetary superpowers – the US and China – should both be tightening into such a 20pc risk, though no doubt they have concluded that asset bubbles are becoming an even bigger danger.

Lesbian Mothers Featured on Disney Channel’s ‘Good Luck Charlie’

WEB Notes: This is absolutely indoctrination of our children. There is nothing natural about same sex couples, not only is it an act against God it is an act against nature itself. Turn off your TVs, we have become as Sodom and Gomorrah.

(Video, Christian Post) – The Disney Channel has featured a lesbian couple on kid’s TV program “Good Luck Charlie,” sparking controversy at what is the first same-sex couple to be featured on the family-focused network.

Obamacare 2.0: More regulation

(Politico) – The president’s health care law may finally be up and running, but the regulatory lift to get the Affordable Care Act working at full capacity is far from over.

Four years after the law’s passage, some major provisions still await regulatory action or have been delayed because of the Obama administration’s struggles to get core elements in place in time for the start of enrollment last October. Large businesses haven’t seen final rules for the employer mandate, and insurers are waiting for more details on the benefits they’ll have to offer in the future.

At least 49 dead in Egypt as throngs commemorate revolution

WEB Notes: Isa 19:1  “The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it. 2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom. 3 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards. 4 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts.”

(Video, CNN) – At least 49 people were killed and 247 wounded in violence marking the third anniversary of the January 25 revolution that brought down longtime dictator Hosni Mubarak, Egyptian state media said.

House Leaders Sell Immigration Blueprint, While Terlling Obama Let’s Do a ‘Year of Action’ Together

(Politico) – The House Republican leadership is trying to sell their colleagues on a series of broad immigration principles, including a path to legal status for those here illegally.

Speaker John Boehner’s leadership team introduced the principles at their annual policy retreat here. Top Republicans circulated a tightly held one-page memo titled “standards for immigration reform” toward the tail-end of a day that include strategy conversations about Obamacare, the economy and the national debt.

NSA Program For Children Makes Spying on Americans Fun

(21st Century Wire) – “We hate to bug you, but… we at the NSA are thrilled about all the attention we’ve been receiving lately for our PRISM program.”

It’s comforting to know that the US federal government has extra money available to groom children to top-up the ranks for the next generation of domestic snoops. The NSA’s latest ‘child-friendly’ initiative must be seen to be believed…

Nothing Lasts Forever; World Bank Ex-Chief Economist Calls For End To Dollar As Reserve Currency

WEB Notes: These calls for a new world currency have been ringing across the globe for several years now from global banking leaders. The global economy is starting to fall a part as the Federal Reserve pulls back on treasury and bond buying. This is by design, the world will then come together as a one world body and Satan will head that system claiming to be Christ.

(ZeroHedge) – In the past we have discussed at length the inevitable demise of the USD as the world’s reserve currency noting that nothing lasts forever. However, when former World Bank chief economist Justin Yifu Lin warns that “the dominance of the greenback is the root cause of global financial and economic crises,” we suspect the world will begin to listen (especially the Chinese. Lin, now – notably – an adviser to the Chinese government, concludes that internationalizing the Chinese currency is not the answer (preferring a basket approach) but ominously concludes, “the solution to this is to replace the national currency with a global currency,” as it will create more stable global financial system.

Who’s ‘godless’ now? Russia says it’s U.S.

(Video, Washington Times) – At the height of the Cold War, it was common for American conservatives to label the officially atheist Soviet Union a “godless nation.”

More than two decades on, history has come full circle, as the Kremlin and its allies in the Russian Orthodox Church hurl the same allegation at the West.

Chick-fil-A gives free food to motorists stranded in Southern snowstorm

WEB Notes: Chick-Fil-A is a Christian business.

(Fox) – A snowstorm in the South is about as rare as a glass of unsweetened tea at a church supper. Folks around Birmingham, Ala. weren’t all that worried though. The storm was only supposed to dust the city – not even enough powder for a Southern snowman.

So when the first snowflakes began to fall, no one paid all that much attention. But then, the flakes kept falling. Before too long folks in places like Hoover and Inverness realized it was much more than a dusting. By that point, it was too late for anyone to do anything.

Iran can now build and deliver nukes, US intel reports

WEB Notes: It truly does not matter what you believe concerning this issue. We have heard for years Iran will nuke Israel and it will happen next week. Time moves on and nothing happens. What does matter is that you understand Biblical events are unfolding at an enormous pace right now. The peace talks concerning Israel, Iran and Syria are extremely important to pay attention too. Scripture tells us Iran (Daniel 8) and Syria (Damascus, Isaiah 17:1) will be destroyed in the end times and 1 Thes 5:3 proclaims “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them”. We are also told there is no peace for Jerusalem yet the peace calls are ringing across the globe (Ezekiel 13:16). Meanwhile, the global financial system is showing signs of destruction as well. Are you paying attention to the signs you are given?

(Times of Israel) – Iran now has all the technical infrastructure to produce nuclear weapons should it make the political decision to do, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper wrote in a report to a Senate intelligence committee published Wednesday. However, he added, it could not break out to the bomb without being detected.
