The Financial System Is A Larger Threat Than Terrorism

In the 21st century Americans have been distracted by the hyper-expensive “war on terror.” Trillions of dollars have been added to the taxpayers’ burden and many billions of dollars in profits to the military/security complex in order to combat insignificant foreign “threats,” such as the Taliban, that remain undefeated after 15 years. All this time the financial system, working hand-in-hand with policymakers, has done more damage to Americans than terrorists could possibly inflict.

The Collapse Of Italy’s Banks Threatens To Plunge The European Financial System Into Chaos

Source: Economic Collapse Blog | The Italian banking system is a “leaning tower” that truly could completely collapse at literally any moment.  And as Italy’s banks begin to go down like dominoes, it is going to set off financial panic all over Europe unlike anything we have ever seen before.  I wrote about the troubles in Italy back in January, but since that time the crisis has escalated.  At this point, Italian banking stocks have declined a whopping 28 percent since the beginning of 2016, and when you look at some of the biggest Italian banks the numbers become even more frightening. On Monday, shares of Monte dei Paschi were down 4.7 percent, and they have now plummeted 56 percent since the start of the year.  Shares of Carige were down 8 percent, and they have now plunged a total of 58 percent since the start of the year.  This is what a financial crisis looks like, and just like we are seeing in South America, the problems in Italy appear to be significantly accelerating.

Queen Elizabeth Says Devotion to Christian Faith Is Why She Won’t Suport Gay Marriage

WEB Notes: This is second hand information so we do not know… What we do know is the church of England is embracing homosexual marriage. For the record, this is not only about homosexuals becoming “married”, this is about being accepted and promoted not only by society which is troubling, but by “Christian” churches. Your Father in Heaven does not waver on issues nor does He provide slack concerning His promises and neither should we (Leviticus 20:13, 2 Peter 2:6, 2 Peter 3:1-9).
