Barack Obama to the Rescue! Err... Whupps...

For those whose allegience is to the World and its system of oppressive governance, Barack Obama is a bright light. He is the one to whom to look for all good things to help us all out of our moribund impotence. This is a truth as true as any verity. Many hate it, revile Obama ("He's a socialist!") and rail at the moon for how good ol' America is being driven into the ground.

Jesus Christ is the Lord of those who want to live in the Kingdom. He is an entire universe away from anything that Barack Obama does, but He allows Obama to reign in the World over World dwellers for the benefit (as it is) of World dwellers. Kingdom people have given up getting anything and always risk enduring the most heated vitriol, or worse, complete and abject marginalization.

They wait with gentleness and longsuffering for they know their Lord gives them His Kingdom, and its infrastructure is nothing but the deepest widest highest charity.

But then there is the perfectly reasonable World. Right there for World revelers. Smiling and sloshing and pretending the World actually has anything of lasting value.

Today we saw Barack Obama sign into law the near-$800 billion "stimulus package," which added to the previous near-$8 trillion bailout money, added to the near-$12 trillion debt, added to the quite definite gobs and gobs of liabilities on the Social Security and Medicare books, makes for a ballpark-$70 trillion liability for the United States of the World.

No wonder the stock market tanked today.

It plunged down a bit closer to the 7,000 mark. What?! No moral boost on Wall Street from the gallant heroics of Obama and his legislative compatriots? What's with that?

What's with that is that too many people see the lies for what they are. The problem is, sadly, they still want to stay in the World, still gritting through their smile that they can figure out what to do. Most will just try to find a way to be on the side of the exploiters.

Jesus Christ? Nah, that's for Sunday morning. For now, grr, grr, grr, how to fix this, how to fix this...

Two last things. Today a major investment company was raided by federal marshals. Think it all that high-level financial hanky panky ended with Bernard Madoff? Oh, you're laughing too. You get it.

And tonight on PBS is a Frontline documentary about the collapse of the economy and Wall Street and the beltway failed to do about it. I'll peek at it to see how much they are going to make it look how inept they all were, and are, and grr grr grr grr grr how mad we are at them grr grr grr what can we do about it think think think grr grr grr.

Makes for a nice show, at least there's that.

The Davos Answer

Every year the most elite power brokers across the globe meet at a conference barely anyone knows about. They gather in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum to discuss new ways to merge innovative business with visionary politics. Some shout in fear about the fascist bargains being arranged there, but they haven't a clue.

The fascist bargain started millennia ago with Cain.

These guys are just blithering about more novel ways to do it.

With the heavy economic crisis being carried around on every attendee's back, the desire to discover that one wonderful financial cure-everything was welling up in everyone's conversation. New York Times uber-columnist Thomas Friedman was covering the conference, and in a National Public Radio interview this week he said everyone was wandering around looking for THE answer. He said it just like that, repeating it a number of times.

THE answer.

What is THE answer?

In Newsweek this week were a couple of pertinent financial items. One was from Robert Samuelson, who said these words: "A temporary stimulus can't fuel a permanent recovery. This requires a strong financial system to supply an expanding economy's credit needs. How we get that isn't clear."

Of course it isn't clear. The Davos people will flail about looking for THE answer but this is really only blind people bonking about or a set-up for some "radical innovation" to "reshape the world" which is always the rhetoric that spews forth from these things. People fearing "New World Order" madness just don't get that it has always been here. No matter what the economic potentates do, as long as people lie, cheat, steal, exploit, and enslave in the pursuit of better and easier value extraction, the New World Order is there to crack heads, take its cut, and see it all happen again.

That other Newsweek piece was about the supposed foresight of Robert Shiller, who's been working for years to perfect a hedge against unfortunate price swings. He believes derivatives is the answer, because an innovative form of this investment tool could be used as a form of insurance. Just like car insurance is used to protect the driver against an accident, special types of derivatives could be used to protect a home owner against falling prices.

The problem is that in the long run a hedge fairly used is just something to ensure you break even. If the hedge favors someone at the expense of the other, however, then it is really just value extraction. Do you have your house to live in or to make it available so it is easier for someone to have a well-deserved home? Or are you trying to hack value off the side of some "investment" for doing nothing other than getting a piece of the scam? This is not to disparage speculators at all, for they do have a job to do for the most accurate value assessment. But if they've signed on to a conception of a future price, then they should be held to account for that judgment just like anyone else.

People like Schiller, Samuelson, and the Davos attendees are devout World inhabitants. They are the best enablers of World operatives (if they are not operatives themselves) whose sworn duty it is to get more people to have more devotion to an anti-Christ. This is really what the squawking is all about, whether it comes from Davos or the basement of a struggling low-income family.

It is quite simple actually. You'll have a devotion to Christ or you'll have a devotion to an anti-Christ. The top bankers, financiers, and politicians of every stripe are merely anti-Christs in the service of the legacy of Cain. Samuelson could be seen as one of the brutally honest ones because in his World ignorance of anything about Christ, he does confess, "How we get that isn't clear." But it could be just as easily he's echoing the World's mantra: "Let us manage things since it is all so difficult. There is no one else to do it for you."

Well, there is.

That Someone Else is Jesus Christ.

No, not the piddly Jesus in a boffo picture on the 501c3 church wall.

This is the One who created the universe, reigns over it all, came among us and died so we may have life in abundance, now and forever.

Doesn't sound like an anti-Christ to me.

Go ahead, trust in one of those guys, or a bunch of them. You might have to, to keep from being so confused.

But you can trust Christ instead.

Then it becomes very clear.
