The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

The attacks against Qatar aren't about the funding of Islamic terrorism, but rather the fate of the petrodollar

It is not a coincidence that just a few weeks after President Donald Trump visited Saudi Arabia and solidified their long-standing partnership with a historic arms deal that nearly overnight, OPEC nations converged en masse against one of their own who had been potentially leaning towards joining the new energy coalition being created in Eurasia.

Diplomats involved in the agreement between Russia and OPEC saw the extensive oil diplomacy as an area of non-confrontation that both sides used to open up channels at the highest levels to secure a common goal, namely to bolster oil prices. The deal involved direct talks between Putin and his Saudi and Iranian counterparts, while the breakthrough came from a late night phone call between the Russian and Saudi oil ministers. 
Similarly, when Qatar bought a 19.5 percent stake in Rosneft in a 10.2 billion-euro ($10.6 billion) deal that also involved Glencore Plc this month, one attraction for the tiny gas-rich emirate was geopolitical, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. Qatar saw the investment as a path to potential business and political links, said the person, who declined to be named due to the sensitivity of the issue. 
Changing Picture 
“What is occurring now is about the bigger picture,” said Theodore Karasik, senior adviser at Gulf State Analytics. He sat on Dubai’s Russian Business Council until this year. “It’s not just about Syria, but all of the Levant and, because of Egypt and Libya, North Africa too.” 
The changes are likely to accelerate with U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s more transactional approach to foreign policy, he said. 
The deal with the Qatar Investment Authority is also notable because Russia and Qatar have had a particularly difficult relationship. Moscow sees the emirate as a sponsor of Islamist terrorist groups in Chechnya during the Russian republic’s long separatist war, and again now in Syria. Russian agents assassinated the Chechen rebel leader Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev in Doha, the Qatari capital, in 2004. 
That made it all the more striking last week, when Emir of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani called Putin to talk business, even as Russian aircraft were bombing Qatar-backed rebels into submission in Aleppo. According to a Kremlin statement, the two leaders discussed the Rosneft deal and how to “further promote political, trade, economic and humanitarian cooperation.” - Bloomberg
Qatar is a incredibly ripe and enticing fruit for both Russia and Saudi Arabia, but for different reasons.  This is because Qatar is the largest exporter of LNG in the world, and for Russia to get them into their fold would solidify their goal of becoming the new replacement for the dying OPEC cartel.  On the flip side Saudi Arabia, who has by far more ties to funding terrorism than Qatar does, is desperate to find a new alternative to their diminishing oil production and is in large part the reason behind their attempts to conduct a war in Yemen.

Should Qatar fully move into Russia's camp, then the acceleration of the breakup of the petrodollar system will become inevitable.  And according to some analysts in the Middle East, these swift overnight threats against Qatar are a last ditch effort to stop the petrodollar's hemorrhaging, and perhaps even formulate a replacement as the oil-dollar system is getting ready to come to an end.
The blockade of Qatar by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen is not a problem that will affect the Gulf states, North Africa and the Middle East alone. This is one of the most important and distinctive historical phases of the global crisis that we are now in. The blockade of Qatar is aimed at replacing the petro-dollar system developed in conjunction with the 1973 oil crisis in both economic and political terms, and making a new economic-political order in the region. - Daily Sabah

New report shows that Bitcoin is not a primary currency for terrorist funding and money laundering

As a modern day axiom likes to say, 'Don't steal, the government hates competition.'.  And this is exactly why both governments and central banks despise monetary forms and systems that are outside their control.

Bitcoin of course was created to be a completely de-centralized form of money through which governments and central banks could not destroy using their well oiled processes of monetary expansion, devaluation, and inflation.  And now that it has become an ever growing part of the mainstream, one of their new fears is that because they cannot control its price in the open markets, Bitcoin is acting in the aspect that gold used to by revealing how insolvent the dollar and other world currencies really are.

So if governments and central banks are unable to control, regulate, manipulate, or even co-opt the crypto-currency, this leaves one final arrow in their quiver to try to dissuade the masses from moving into it.  And that of course is propaganda.

Over the past few years governments have used their controlled mainstream press to try to label Bitcoin as the currency of drug dealers, money launderers, and of course, terrorist groups.  But a new report out on March 2 shows that in fact the use of Bitcoin in financing terrorism or in laundering money for illicit groups is nothing more than a canard.

Image result for bitcoin is freedom
Ever since bitcoin started gaining popularity, claims have been made as to how this “anonymous” currency facilitates terrorist financing. That has always been a very disturbing claim, even though there was never any solid evidence to back up these claims by any means. In fact, this particular UK report goes to show how cryptocurrency is not used by terrorists, and most likely never will. 
It is evident government officials overreact when they are greeted with new and innovative technologies. Particularly when these innovations take place in the financial sector. Terrorist financing has been a thorn in the side of government officials for quite some time now, yet they are no step closer to finding out where the money is coming from. Blaming bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for this issue is a logical conclusion, even though officials are incapable of providing this is happening. - The Merkel
Ironically over the past few years, it has been proven that it is more likely that highly regulated global banks participate in money laundering, illicit activities, and aiding in terrorist funding far more than any other type of alternative banking or currency mechanisms.  And there is even one report that suggests that the major Western banks would have gone insolvent if it weren't for their participation in laundering money for the drug cartels during the 2008 financial crisis.

The rise of Bitcoin has almost moved in tandem with the rise of populism and the growing rejection of fascist government controls and central bank monetary destruction.  And when you include the growing rebellion coming against the mainstream media, who are today seen as little more than a propaganda arm of each, the labeling of Bitcoin as a currency for criminals by governments no longer holds any water, and the facts are now coming out to prove it.

Obama to give $800 million to fund terror groups in Syria and Ukraine

Earlier this year, President Obama signed legislation that provided $500 million to fund ‘moderate’ Syrian groups that just happened to also be on the Terror watch list.  This program also blew up in the President’s face as it was later reported that the money sent to train hundreds of Syrian fighters only ever trained five of them.
So it should be no surprise that Obama is going back to the well again, and in the newest Defense appropriations bill, the President is designating $800 million now that will go to support terrorist groups in both Syria and Ukraine.

Watchdog reveals that the London banking system protocols allow for money laundering by terror groups

Since 9/11, most of the draconian laws instituted in the West under the guise of ‘fighting terrorism’ were never meant to actually fight and stop these radical groups, but instead they were created to instill fear, and remove liberties from the people’s of these countries.  And one does not have to go very far to realize this than to look just 10 days ago in Paris where a small group of terrorists were able to inflict massive amounts of violence under the noses of a government that already had massive surveillance and wiretapping systems already in place to protect against incidents like this.
But besides communication and coordination,  terrorists also need funding to be able to carry out their horrific objectives.  And in a new report from the watchdog group, Transparency International, a study on one of the most surveilled cities in the world shows that very little has been done to secure their banking systems from being used as a monetary conduit for terrorists, and that their banks are wide open to playing a big role in today’s terrorism.

Here we go… EU goes after Bitcoin under guise of ‘funding terrorism’

In the aftermath of the terror attacks in Paris last weekend, leaders within the European Union (EU) are functioning as expected by engaging in a reactionary crisis mode as they attempt to appear relevant following the deaths of over 100 people.  And using the axiom coined by former U.S. Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel where governments should never let a crisis ‘go to waste’, EU ministers have begin focusing on Bitcoin rather than the root causes of the attacks by claiming the crypto-currency is a primary platform for the funding of terrorism.
Bitcoin in itself is amoral, and acts as a medium of exchange between any number of paper currencies, or in direct trade for goods and services.  And like the failed arguments made by a small section of the population that claims that guns kill people, even though it is little more than an inanimate tool used for good or evil, the real reasons behind Europe’s new push to regulate Bitcoin is more about control than it is about halting terrorism or illegal activity.
