The following are the key world indicators that we monitor closely and statements.
Israel – This very small Middle Eastern country is not the key to Middle East peace or world peace.
Middle East tensions – Most Middle Eastern countries are at different stages of internal conflict. Many of the battles are between the Sunnis and the Shiites. A peace deal in Israel will not improve a single conflict.
Iran – The leadership in Iran believes they are to usher in the coming of the 12th Imam, the Muslim Messiah.
Russia – The Putin led government wants to be a major world player. They want to control the world’s major oil assets. Russia is rapidly increasing their Middle Eastern influence and providing military weapons.
US economy – The US financial catastrophe and contagion has numerous sources: Wall Street greed and the lack of regulation; US banks’ lending practices and the funding of corporate takeovers; corporate greed; record low savings due to cost of living increases and materialism; health care costs; the lack of a national energy plan; years of ill-advised legislation, deficit spending, a nine-million word tax code, 11,000 Washington lobbyists, Congressional ineptness and White House policy.
World economy – The world economies have been devastated by the US sub-prime fiasco and Wall Street greed. Just under $40 trillion of worldwide stock mark capitalization has been wiped out, $10 trillion in the US.
US moral condition – Man’s free will in opposition to God’s will. Civil rights are replacing morality.
Radical Islam – Radicals cannot be defeated so they have to be managed.
One-world order – Russia, China, Iran and radical Muslims will never participate in the move to one-world order.
Global Warming – Princeton University physicist Dr. William Happer told a congressional committee hearing in February 2009 that global warming fears are “mistaken” and that the earth is currently in a “CO2 famine now” when you look at carbon dioxide (CO2) levels through geological time.
He said, “At least 90% of greenhouse warming is due to water vapor and clouds. Carbon dioxide is a bit player. The current warming period began about 1800 at the end of the little ice age, long before there was an appreciable increase of CO2. Research papers with scientific findings contrary to the dogma of climate calamity are rejected by reviewers, many of whom fear that their research funding will be cut if any doubt is cast on the coming climate catastrophe.”
