Where Did the Bail Out Money Go – and Why?
How many ba-zillions has the government spent on bailouts?
According to an article on World Net Daily, the amount admitted to is currently 2.2 trillion.
Who got the money?
Nobody seems able to give an account of who got what.
And, how does this affect you?
It affects all of us adversely in the long run, and pretty much in the short run as well. Don’t think the government is ‘worried’ about the drop in your retirement account value. You are just collateral damage in their true agenda. In fact, the liberal/socialist/rinos prefer that you fail. They WANT every citizen to come to them begging for a handout.
The thing is, there never was a ‘need’ for a bailout’. The free market system works properly when allowed to. Everything the government has done has made the economy worse for working people.
The sad truth is the government has no thought to make the economy better for working people. Their agenda is a socialist/communist state that is global in scope, and where the government is looked to for help instead of God. This explains why Obama is not concerned with the stock market plunge. I suspect that privately he is elated by the plunge. This makes it more likely that more people will wind up living on the pittance of social security. THEN – more people will be crying to the government for help. This is not limited to the United States alone.
Their agenda is global in scope.
They are not interested in stimulating the economy of the United States specifically.
They are intent on making the currencies of the world ‘equitable’.
That means one dollar or its equivalent will have the same purchasing power no matter what country or region in which the money is spent.
That means the dollar of the nations with greater purchasing power be devalued to fit the dollar of the poor nations.
That also means that the eventual implementation of a one world currency will not be a really big deal, because all the money has the same purchasing power anyway. In fact, the entire crisis was intentionally created by those with globalist ideology, and their blind/ignorant followers in congress.
This is not rational thinking. Rational thinking would be to work toward the poor countries building up and producing goods and services. This would bring the value of their dollar equivalent up. The value of the currency of the richer nations doesn’t need to be dragged down to accomplish this. Look at Japan and the United States. Japan should get down on her knees and thank the God of the United States they were helped and encouraged in building a strong economy after WWII. In today’s world, Japan would be pitied; given handouts, and doomed to poverty and dependency on foreign handouts.
At the end of WWII, nations and leaders were very patriotic and nationalistic. They saw the success of individual nations as crucial in building a world that was safe, prosperous, and free.
Today, the leaders of the nations see things differently. They see the world as better off under one leadership. This requires one currency, probably under the authority of the IMF.
Here is what is going on with some current world leaders seeking global currency:
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, EU heads such as Joaquin Almunia and establishment media outlets like the Wall Street Journal amongst many others have all used the economic crisis as an excuse to argue for greater financial power, a “new world economic order” in which control is concentrated into fewer hands - with the IMF and the World Bank enjoying the spoils.
UK Business Secretary and top Bilderberg member Peter Mandelson has also pushed for a “Bretton Woods for this century,” to help build the “machinery of global economic governance”.
Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy all made the same appeal at a conference in Paris on the future of capitalism last month.
Merkel called for the creation of a new global economic body under the UN, similar to the Security Council, to judge government policy.
Sarkozy called for a “new world, new capitalism” during his speech, as he commented “In capitalism of the 21st century, there is room for the state.”
Meanwhile, Blair called for a new financial order which he said should be constructed upon “values other than the maximum short-term profit.”
The tragic trend toward globalism is impossible to reverse. It may be possible to slow its progress through intercessory prayer to God Almighty through Jesus Christ the Son.
Lest you think I am suggesting that Christians ‘fiddle while Rome burns, there are things that need to be done. Christians need to do three things.
First, pray. We are supposed to that regardless of current problems.
Second, do our job! As Christians our job description is to tell the world about Jesus. We are to start with our own families, and go out into the world. The ‘Great Commission’ is not negated by government scandal and treachery.
Third, lift up our eyes and look for the return of our King.
And, for your specific personal benefit, do one one more thing. Enjoy the day as much as is possible. In some instances, such as recent grief or loss, the world is pretty much in limbo for a time of mourning. If that is not your situation at this time, then just go forward with your life. Enjoy the blessings that God has given you today.
Do the best you can for the day. Do what is right. Do what you have an opportunity to do.
Take no thought for tomorrow. Just deal with the problems of today. God will deal with the problems of tomorrow. Just do your duty today.
Read Mathew Chapter 6 and Luke Chapter 12 for comfort in this time of uncertainty and peril.
