What do this week’s stock market crash and events in Turkey have to do with each other? Find out in this week’s Jerusalem Report! You won’t want to miss this one! If I’m right, there are many more wild rides to come and you’ll want to be prepared.
Punxsutawney Phil, the famous Spring-predicting groundhog, came out of his hole on Friday, February 2, 2018, saw his shadow and scrambled back inside his hole, the same day the Dow fell an ominous 666 points. Was there a connection between this large rodent and the Stock Market’s plunge? Did Punxsutawney Phil forecast, not only that Spring won’t be peeking out from behind the grey doldrums any time soon, but the Stock Market might not, either? Whether Punxsutawney Phil prognosticated prophecies of powerful problems in the Stock Market long term remains to be seen. However, just a few days later, the Market took a historic turn for the worse falling another 1,175 points on Monday.
The Dow Jones suffered its biggest one-day point drop in history, plunging 1,175 points on Monday which meant it gave back all its 2018 gains. It was a wild day on Wallstreet this past Monday. The Dow suddenly spiraled down almost 1,600 points at one moment — in what some analysts said was a computer- and machine-generated drop – only to then recover and end the day down 1,175.21 points.
On Tuesday, the Dow plummeted another 567 points, but at the closing bell it was up 567 points. That is a swing of more than 1000 points, but what is more surprising is the exact symmetry of those numbers. Is this just some sort of bizarre coincidence?
While the pounding in point terms was historic, the Dow’s 4.6% decline on Monday was not sizable enough for Wall Street pros to describe it as a crash.
According to Michael Snyder of TheEconomicCollapseBlog, Wednesday would be a key day. If the markets were nice and calm, that would be a really good sign.
But if we saw tremendous movement in one direction or the other, that could indicate that more shaking is on the way.
In any event, the absurdly inflated stock prices of today are simply not sustainable. Stock valuations always return to their long-term averages eventually, and that will be true in this case as well.
What goes up must come down, and we have certainly witnessed this with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies lately. As far as stocks are concerned, the best that we can hope for in the long-term is a soft landing, but history tells us that is usually not how giant financial bubbles come to an end.
Can you make this stuff up? Probably not. It is up to end times believers to see, to discern, the meaning behind events and understand what is happening. In the case of last Friday’s Stock Market crash, YHVH was speaking.
Connect the dots. The Dow falling 666 points on the same day that a rodent – really, a big rat – prognosticated that Spring really isn’t here yet could be a significant message that the United States’ economic recovery really isn’t here, yet, either.
Put the number 666 with the word ‘rat’ and what do you get? A prophecy from God about the U.S. and global economy. ‘666’ is not just any number and the connection between Punxsutawney Phil and the Stock Market on that day are not coincidence. That score was the sixth-largest (there’s that prophetic number ‘6’ again) daily point decline in its nearly 150-year history.
Why? According to David Haggith, of the ‘Great Recession Blog’: While there are various influences around the world, one answer seems most apparent above all — at least for what happened in the US: the benchmark 10-year yield rose to 2.85 percent (a four-year high), and 30-year US treasury bonds saw their worst weekly increase since the election (breaking through the feared 3% top-of-the-trend barrier and ticking up midday almost to 3.1% before settling solidly above the barrier at 3.08). This steepened the US yield curve — too long too flat — the most since the election.
Almost everyone in the major media outlets agreed that …“The key for the market today is rising interest rates,” said Mike Baele, managing director at U.S. Bank Wealth Management. “The old adage is: ‘Bull markets don’t die of old age, they are killed by higher interest rates.’ That looms large.” (CNBC)
And all of this is what I have been proclaiming for, at least, a couple of years now — that the end of the Federal Reserve’s fake recovery and particularly, of late, the trumped-up rally would come from the real rise of interest rates when the Fed starts real quantitative squeezing. That has barely begun, and yet it is already creating serious tremors that could signal a rout in bond funds. What has people running scared is the potential collapse of the biggest bond bubble in the history of global finance.
For now, [David anticipates] that the Trump’s tax cuts will create a lot more levity for the market than the weight of interest pressing down upon it.
Keep in mind that Deutsche Bank, one of the largest globalist banks, is still trying to crash. Does that matter? Well, even the bank’s own Binky Chadha is waving a red flag about the risk of global contagion in the global marketplace because the correlation in market moves between asset-classes is now at its highest. That correlation in movements and momentum now matches its previous peaks of 2012 and 2010.
Prior to this blog post, David had, on January 20, 2018, publicly announced that he was betting his blog on an economic collapse in 2018. [His] 2018 economic predictions follow through on the accurate predictions made in 2017. In [his] last article, [he] stated that [he] had bet [his] blog the stock market would crash by January 2018. That was [his] thinking back then based on where Obama had been taking us. But when he reviewed his predictions, [he] found [he] had revised [his] thinking even [during the election] and had [changed his prediction] due to the Trump factor.
[He says he then] realized even at the very start of Trump’s term that, for the short term (2017-2018), Trump would seriously alter the timing of our trajectory toward economic collapse that had been laid in during the Obama years, …[but he] also predicted …that Trump would not improve things over the full length of his term because our underlying economic woes would only get worse … even under Trump.
One of David’s predictions, which did not happen in 2017 as he thought, may have now happened. What prediction was that? That globalist banksters might even collapse the economy on purpose just so they could use Trump as the scapegoat for their failed economy.
Natural News offered this opinion: That the stock market plunge is a Deep State nuclear attack on Trump. The Health Ranger said, in his article, “When it comes to big moves in the stock market, there are no coincidences. Following President Trump‘s approval for the release of the damning FISA memo that proves the Hillary Clinton / DNC collusion with the Obama regime to illegally spy on Trump campaign officials, the Deep State [run now by Obama] is now “going nuclear” by attempting to decimate the stock market and remove Trump from power”.
Recall a couple of weeks ago, I reported that John Kerry told a close friend of PA President Mahmoud Abbas that Trump would be out of office within a year. When I broke that story, it was only coming from Maariv, Israel’s premier evening newspaper, and Maariv was the only news outlet running it at the time. On Facebook, I was the target of a snide comment about publishing untruths on my website. Within a day, other major media outlets were running the story proving that I wasn’t just publishing a rumor. The snide remark had to have been from an Obama supporter. Was the Maariv article the first warning of a Deep State operation? Did that Deep State operation start with roiling Trump’s economic successes?
Understand that, in order to take out Trump, the Deep State is willing to destroy America in the process. Democrats and the Deep State, it turns out, would rather see America decimated than witness President Trump achieve economic abundance for this nation. “These people are so evil and so power drunk that they’ll burn the nation to the ground rather than let Donald Trump live another day in office,” warned Michael Savage.
Four prominent opinion leaders across independent media are now sounding the exact same alarm on all this. They are Peter Schiff, Michael Savage, Alex Jones and Mike Adams, the Health Ranger.
Michael Savage said, “Trump’s stirring SOTU (State of the Union) speech last week was so great that even CBS admitted 75 percent of the people who watched it approved of it and loved it. So what happened right afterwards? The Establishment, meaning the ‘Deep State,’ …went into overdrive to destroy Trump …[by] taking the market down”.
Peter Schiff said that “the Fed would be happy to see a bear market… blamed on Trump”.
Despite its independence, the Federal Reserve may quietly want a bear market that takes down a president that loves tweeting about the stock market.
Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, told The Street that “[Janet] Yellen’s put “in the markets could expire under President Trump. “Maybe the Fed would be happy to see a bear market that could be blamed on Trump.”
Schiff thinks the markets could easily correct 20%.
Alex Jones: The mainstream media… is in the news simultaneously trying to drive down markets [by] saying, “For those of you who supported Trump, his antics are the reason why the stock market is down.” No, it was up three trillion plus dollars because of exuberance, the talk of tax cuts and the belief that America was back to being business.
Health Ranger: “Globalists are setting up the perfect storm of financial apocalypse to be unleashed once Trump takes office…”
Mike Adams also noted that [he] saw all this being engineered in December of 2016, where he warned in a Natural News article:
The rigged markets that now seem to defy gravity will be deliberately and destructively imploded under President Trump for all the obvious reasons. There will be financial chaos like we’ve never seen before: Investors leaping off tall buildings, banks declaring extended “holidays” that freeze transactions, and California pensioners slitting their wrists after they discover their promised pension funds were just vaporized by incompetent bureaucrats.
…The Trump administration will be targeted for termination via a punitive, engineered financial firestorm…
Initially, [Mike] saw this potentially taking place in 2017, but it took a little longer for the Deep State to unleash the “nuclear” financial option, so we’re seeing this in 2018 instead.
Be warned: America is in the crosshairs of demonic, destructive forces hell bent on absolute obliteration of liberty and prosperity …It’s clear that Deep State elements are unleashing a “nuclear option” to decimate this nation as a strategy to remove Trump from power (and de-legitimize Republicans forever). The …long-term goal has always been to thrust America into a civil war, install Obama as the head of the United Nations, then call for UN “peacekeeper” troops to disarm American citizens under martial law.
Billionaire Carl Icahn told CNBC on Tuesday there are too many exotic, leveraged products for investors to trade, and one day these securities are going to blow up the market.
The market is a “casino on steroids” with all these exchange-traded funds and exchange-traded notes, he said.These funds, especially the leveraged ones, are the “fault lines” that will eventually lead to an earthquake on Wall Street, he said. “These are just the beginnings of a rumbling.”
Icahn says “the market itself is way over-leveraged” and predicted that “one day this thing is just going to implode.” He described the possible implosion as “maybe eventually worse than 1929,” making reference to the stock market crash that contributed to the Great Depression.
Investors are piling into index funds thinking they’ll never go down”, Icahn said. “Passive investing is the bubble right now, and that’s a great danger.”
But as much as he was sounding alarm bells, Icahn said, “I don’t think this is the explosive time.” The market will “probably bounce back,” he continued. “I don’t think this is the beginning of the end.”
While YHVH used the ‘666’ number and an oversized famous rat to send his message, it appears the New World Order sent a message of their own. Do you think it was a coincidence that after the ‘666’ point fall last Friday, and the 567 point drop with a sudden rise to end the day at 567 points above was not also a message?
YHVH sent America an economic message last Friday. The New World Order defiantly manipulated the numbers on Monday and Tuesday to let God and everyone else know who is in charge on this planet!
Let’s look at what happened on Wednesday. As Michael Snyder said, Wednesday would tell a long-term tale of either recovery or destruction.
As of the date of this article, Dow futures had already dropped about 150 points on Wednesday morning as the volatility that has rocked markets for more than a week lingered. The premarket losses signaled a decline of about 200 points at the open.
U.S. stock-index futures …suggested the recent dramatic swings on Wall Street were nowhere near over. The stock market was struggling to stabilize after heavy selling on Friday and Monday, and after a wild day of trading on Tuesday.
Tuesday’s powerful bounce had given hope to the bulls that the market has begun to find a bottom …but Wednesday’s premarket retreat signals that the rebound may be fragile. Overseas markets have mostly calmed down after plunging earlier this week. Asian stocks closed mixed overnight, while European indexes are mostly higher. But recovery was not seen on Thursday, either.
The question now is whether “this draws a line under the recent stock market correction or whether this is merely a dead cat bounce,” analysts wrote. Despite the market slump, analysts believe the fundamental backdrop looks solid. Corporate earnings have never been higher and U.S. and global economic growth has gained steam.
Business Insider’s article, The stock market is not the economy, touts the new Wallstreet axiom that people shouldn’t worry about the Stock Market because it is not really an economic indicator. We can only surmise why economists continue to point at the Stock Market crashes over the last 150 years, starting with the one in 1929, as something to pay attention to since their Wallstreet counterparts are trying to disconnect the Stock Market from the operation of the economy. That’s like car dealers telling you not to put sugar in your gas tank while the manufacturers tell you it’s ok.
Stock Market crashes have always – and I do mean always – started panic outside Wallstreet. But the Street wants to prevent another run on banks and mass mortgage defaults by telling you to look somewhere else when the Market plunges.
The wild ride ain’t over as long as the liberal and conservative globalists are fighting each other. YHVH is still setting up Babylon USA for the BIG fall and part of His method was to make a breach in the New World Order starting in the late 1990s.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE OR IS IT JUST COINCIDENCE?
Lindsey Williams, a New World Order watch dog, a few years ago said the New World Order was having internal struggles with Obama, but also that the younger, more liberal New World Order kids were in a stand off with the older more conservative New World Order adults. Obama is part of that liberal New World Order that is fighting the old conservatives. Now, the liberal New World Order is in control of the Deep State where the real power is located.
Furthermore, it was these liberal New World Order brats in the West that caused the formation of yet another New World Order in the East that is headed by Russia and China. This economic breach is on President Donald Trump’s agenda as needing to be fixed.
His efforts have gotten the United States further entrenched in the Middle East and is endangering Israel by using Saudi Arabia to provoke Iran. Rather than healing the breach, Trump has made it worse. Americans are now in danger from the war that Trump could be bringing directly to American soil, but his nemeses within the Western New World Order could bring about complete economic collapse before he is out of office. Trump is one man fighting two New World Order factions!
The Stock Market plunge, along with those strange prophetic numbers, are not coincidence. The New World Order folks know about that number, ‘666’, just like the rest of us. That was YHVH’s hand, but the market’s symmetrical numbers on Tuesday tells the tale of the New World Order’s defiance, the same defiance that will have them shaking their fists at YHVH during the Great Tribulation (Revelation 9:20-21, 16:9, 11).
The Wallstreet Journal had another take on this wild Stock Market ride. That is the banks are relishing in the mess they’re making. The article titled, Banks Cheer Return of Wild Markets – Placid markets led to weak returns. Now banks hope for a fee boost as volatility makes a comeback, tells us that banks have blamed placid markets for lackluster returns in their big trading operations. This week they’re cheering the big market swings, seeing hope for a boost in fees that dropped off a cliff last year.
“Anything that brings back volatility would be good,” said Peter Tchir, macro-investing strategist at New York-based Academy Securities LLC. “Maybe we could see a return to better quarters” for banks across their fixed-income trading businesses, from currencies to interest-rate hedging.
Dull markets during most of 2017 pushed lenders’ trading revenues to historic lows as clients saw little reason to shuffle their investments or buy derivatives to hedge risks in ever-rising markets. Now, with stocks plunging on expectations of rising bond yields and higher inflation, the same banks, analysts and investors see a brighter picture.
Trading volume for the shortest-duration U.S. Treasury bills hit their highest monthly average in January since October 2008, according to data from the securities industry trade group Sifma. Corporate-bond trading volume jumped to $29 billion a day in January from $18 billion a day in December, while stock trading volumes hit a seven-month high.
And with expectations of interest-rate increases, traders report higher demand for hedges, swaps and other instruments that protect investors from the effect of rate swings.
“Is it the light at the end of the tunnel? No. Is it temporary relief? Yes,” said George Kuznetsov, global head of research at London-based consultancy firm Coalition.
The renewed volatility in the market may push revenues on trading desks up by 10% to 15% in the first quarter of this year, Mr. Kuznetsov said. Foreign exchange, macro trading and credit trading are expected to be the big winners of the market moves, said analysts.
One risk for trading desks is that they’ll get too much of a good thing. Excessive volatility, particularly when asset prices depreciate, can chill investor appetite to trade more. And banks and dealers often hold inventories of stocks and bonds that they have to mark down in value during a broad selloff in prices.
For now though, the focus is on staying busy. Asian markets saw a rush of panic selling Tuesday morning, compared with calmer, more measured European markets, London traders said.
“Market conditions can change and turn rapidly, and they have,” Martin Chavez, Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s chief financial officer, told analysts on a January earnings call.
It is too early to tell whether recent volatility will sustain better revenues in the long term, bankers and analysts said. Over the past few years, big market swings, such as those around the U.K. Brexit vote, were followed by periods of calm. Bankers saw little benefit as investors sat on the sidelines during nervous or panicked buying or selling.
Banks need a steady drumbeat of market churn to keep business flowing.
Did you catch this? Did the Wallstreet Journal really just tell everyone who is willing to read the newspaper once in awhile that the bankers NEED Market turmoil? Why, yes, it did. Now you know why the global bankers are always against a steady and good economy that it best for us ‘useless eaters’, as Obama called ‘the little people’ and why they are constantly trying to stir the cauldron. They don’t want the money, or the power, in your pockets, my friends. They want it in their own and they will kill your economy, your household budget and put you on the street in order to fill their coffers!
Now back to the Wallstreet Journal:
“The pull-through to trading requires a bunch of things: increased volatility, client activity, market events, central bank actions. All of those things could be drivers for greater activity,” Mr. Chavez told analysts on the January earnings call.
There are some signs that the trading freeze is starting to thaw. Even before the wild market ride of recent days, investment banking chiefs sounded more upbeat about the first quarter of the year, which is traditionally a busy time for them.
Credit Suisse Group AG Chief Executive Tidjane Thiam said in interviews at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that the Swiss bank sees a strong pipeline of deals coming through which it expects to be reflected in first-quarter numbers. UBS Group AG Chief Executive Sergio Ermotti also said at the start of the year that he expected volatility to return to the market.
Why, how would they know?
Banks are starting from a low base. Full-year 2017 revenues across the investment banking industry were on course to decline 3% to 5% compared with the previous year, the worst since the financial crisis, according to consultancy Oliver Wyman.
There is little chance of trading desks morphing back into the mega revenue generators of yesteryear. Greater capital requirements have made it harder for banks to take on the risks they once did, such as by holding piles of securities themselves. (Or by lending money for families to buy houses, I might add.)
Let me insert this headline from Wednesday, February 7, 2018, by CNBC which says, the following: The first week in February usually marks the start of the busy spring housing market, but you wouldn’t know that from the mortgage market.
Total mortgage application volume barely moved last week, up just 0.7 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis from one week earlier, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. Volume was 5 percent higher than the same week a year ago.
Applications to refinance a home loan, which usually fall when rates rise, eked out a 1 percent gain for the week and were nearly 2 percent higher than a year ago, when interest rates were lower. Some borrowers may have jumped to get the last low rates now, fearing even higher ones coming soon.
The refinance share of mortgage activity decreased to 46.4 percent of total applications, its lowest level since July, from 47.8 percent the previous week. Refinance volume hasn’t moved much in the last several months, signaling it may have hit a floor.
The average contract interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages with conforming loan balances ($453,100 or less) increased to its highest level since April 2014, 4.50 percent, from 4.41 percent, with points increasing to 0.57 from 0.56 (including the origination fee) for 80 percent loan-to-value ratio loans.
“While the stock market leapt into the New Year with strong gains, only to give it all back over the past few days, interest rates have generally moved higher, with the 10-year Treasury and 30-year mortgage rates about 30 basis points higher than where we started at the beginning of January,” said Mike Fratantoni, MBA’s chief economist. “A strong job market, accelerating wage growth, and expectations of faster rate hikes from the Fed all have played roles in pushing up longer-term rates.”
Mortgage applications to purchase a home were unchanged for the week, despite strong showings at open houses in neighborhoods across the nation. Buyers are out in force, but home prices are high and there is record low supply of homes for sale in most major markets. Purchase applications were 8 percent higher than a year ago, a sign of increased demand even amid the low supply.
Mortgage rates pulled back slightly at the start of this week, after the wild freefall in the stock market sent investors back to the bond market. Mortgage rates loosely follow the yield on the 10-year Treasury. That yield was moving higher again Tuesday, when the stock market swung back to the positive. Volatility will likely be the rule with yet another possible government shutdown looming.
The truth is that the bankers fill their pockets when times are good for them – like after the 2008 bailouts that the U.S. government handed them which were intended for consumer loans that they refused to lend – and when times are bad. The banks have been riding high on the unstable Stock Market that has ensued since the 2008 crash. They call us the ‘useless eaters’ and ‘the little people’, but I call them the ‘great blood suckers of all time’!
Now, back to the Wallstreet Journal which is so blatantly announcing the bankers’ lying schemes:
Banks have already slashed thousands of trading jobs to cut costs. And not all volatility brings good news. Fees from merger advising, debt issuance and initial public offerings could be dented as clients put deals on ice.
The boost in trading revenue could generate hundreds of millions of dollars for banks if the market volatility continues through the quarter, said Jonathan Wills, a London-based partner at Oliver Wyman. “It is going to be a good thing for sales and trading franchises,” he said.
The Business Insider article did leave us with this: That inflation — a force unseen really anywhere on earth since the bottom dropped out in 2008 — has returned. That could inject uncertainty about interest-rate policy into what was our incredibly stable mix, creating an environment where central-bank cooperation will no longer serve as a buffer against the realities of the world.
In other words, the thing is just about likely to fall apart. And it’s not me predicting it.
Interest-rate policy is not the only place where we can observe cooperation fraying more dramatically thanks to inflation. Consider the weakness of the US dollar, another piece of the inflationary puzzle. Its weakness already has some on Wall Street warning of a “cold currency war,” with an administration making unconventional statements about the strength of the dollar injecting a new level of uncertainty around the world’s reserve currency.
I’m not saying all these risks are going to bring us down. I’m saying our defenses are lower now. Everyone in the market has new risk factors to consider. This is what Wall Street is spending days of horror reimagining.
Like it or not, dear Business Insider, interest-rate policy and Market bidders trying to protect themselves are two of the trends that might bleed into the American and global economies.
Here is some information for you that if you pay attention, you will see the connection between the Stock Market volatility and events happening in Turkey.
A liberal Syrian opposition leader lobbied the Trump White House and conservative think tanks in Washington last week to support a plan to counter growing Iranian and Islamist domination in Syria. Kamal al-Labwani says he received a favorable reception from his contact at the National Security Council and from the think tanks with which he met.
He wants American help to manage a force of non-Islamist Arab and Kurdish rebels to push out the Assad regime and in building a credible non-sectarian democratic government in its place.
Current U.S. policy has focused on arming and supporting the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) against ISIS. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced two weeks ago that the U.S. would keep troops in northern Syria to keep ISIS from re-emerging.
Al-Labwani wants the United States and Israel to provide military support to a coalition of Arab non-Islamist rebels fighting under the banner of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) Southern Front along the Jordanian border in southern Syria. Reports last fall indicate that Israel has been arming FSA groups. In one video, FSA fighters were shown emptying ammunition containers marked with Hebrew letters.
Al-Labwani met with Israeli authorities in 2016, asking them to enforce a no-fly zone over southern Syria, including over Damascus and southwestern Syria using their air defense systems. The Israelis told al-Labwani they could cover an area at least 62 miles deep inside Syria, but that has yet to happen. But Israel has implemented al-Labwani’s suggestion to allow Syrian fighters to obtain medical care in Israeli hospitals.
In an interview with the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) al-Labwani proposed training these forces in Jordan and in areas controlled by the FSA Southern Front and the SDF. He plans to meet with SDF representatives in Geneva next month.
The FSA Southern Front would cut off Iran’s land bridge to the Mediterranean by linking up with the SDF, now fighting ISIS in northern Syria, in eastern Syria along the Iraqi border.
According to Michael Pregent, adjunct fellow at the Hudson Institute, al-Labwani’s proposal has merit, but it could face difficulties due to likely infighting between Arabs and Kurds.
Al-Labwani says tensions among Syria’s competing ethnic, tribal and religious groups can be minimized by building a new federal Syria that would give a greater say to these groups in running the country.
Al-Labwani founded a group called the Syrian Liberal Democratic Union in 2001. His warning that year that a civil war was in Syria’s future landed him in prison for three years.
Al-Labwani also served six years in a Syrian prison for meeting with Bush White House officials in 2005. He then joined the opposition Syrian National Council (SNC) but resigned due to Qatari and Muslim Brotherhood control of the body. Al-Labwani predicted in 2012 that having Islamists take over the revolution against Assad would be disastrous. He also belonged to the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces in 2014, which has supported Turkey’s recent assault on Syrian Kurds in Afrin.
“Turkey, Qatar, and Jordan, and everybody ask us to be loyal to [their] country, not loyal to Syria,” al-Labwani said about their overlordship over the SNC and its successor bodies. “That is the big problem. You need money; ok, you have to obey us. You need weapons; you have to take orders. So this makes division inside this [society] and … is not loyal to my case because I spent 10 years in prison not to be agent to Jordan or agent to Turkey [but] to help my people, my family.”
These nations have no interest in letting Syrians build their own civil-society institutions or in having their own representatives, al-Labwani said. He wants no part of any institutions controlled by Qatar, Turkey or any other foreign power.
Al-Labwani has strong connections with leaders of opposition groups in the south and plans to meet with SDF representatives in the coming month in Vienna, Austria to discuss his plan.
Undercutting Iran requires working with tribal leaders to promote conflict in Hizballah-controlled areas. The Iranian-controlled terror group enjoys hegemony over neighboring Lebanon, and it counts Christians such as Lebanese President Michel Aoun as key allies. Hizballah and other Iranian-backed Shiite militias have served as Assad’s shock troops fighting to restore control of areas formerly controlled by ISIS and other militias.
“We need to defeat Hizballah. To go inside the society, inside his society and make conflict between each other. We have to fight them from inside the Lebanese society,” al-Labwani said.
Working with Arab rebels in the south, al-Labwani says he can help provide a credible alternative to the Islamists supported by Qatar and Turkey.
Sheikh Muhammad Yaqoubi is an influential Syrian anti-Islamist cleric who works with al-Labwani. Yaqoubi told the IPT that Syrian rebel leaders in the south, who were snubbed by the Obama administration due to their lack of Muslim Brotherhood connections and support from Qatar, could get the job done.
Now it’s up to the Trump administration to embrace anti-Assad forces who want a peaceful, non-sectarian Syria in contrast with the prior administration’s policies.
Speaking of the Muslim Brotherhood, Turkey just made a behind-the-scenes move with terrorists operating on American soil with a meeting of its own held by the country’s Directorate of Religious Affairs, Ali Erbas. The meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood was the arena where Ali Erbas declared the United States an enemy of Turkey. No longer are the U.S. and Turkey NATO allies, according to Ali, but now the two countries are enemies.
Herein lies the connection between the Stock Market volatility and Turkey. What did Turkey have to do with it? Keep listening.
TURKEY’S SYRIA GAMBIT
Much has happened between the U.S. and Turkey since the Syrian war began. The latest is that Turkey’s President Erdogan is getting barraged about his Syria offensive by both France and the U.S. But guess what? It appears that the U.S. and Iran are on the same side of this matter, as well. Iran called for Turkey’s withdrawal from Syria this week, along with France and the U.S.
In the latest Turkish-French war of words over the ongoing operation against Kurds in northwest Syria, France’s foreign minister said Ankara is violating international law through its actions. But France went a step further and …called for the withdrawal of all forces that “ought not to be in Syria, including Iranian militia and Hezbollah.”
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani [also] called on Turkey to stop its military operation in the northern Syrian enclave of Afrin, saying it will only result in more deaths on both sides.
So while France and Iran were calling for Turkey to withdraw from Syria, and Turkey was calling for the United States to do the same, another important instigator against Israel, Sami Al-Arian, a deported Palestinian Islamic Jihadist and PIJ board member spoke at a conference, sponsored by Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs, in Istanbul last Tuesday where he denounced the United States as Turkey’s enemy.
“The United States, which gives Israel so much confidence, is our enemy,” Al-Arian said, telling the conference Muslims needed to stand against the U.S. That includes an embargo on the United States by Muslim nations, he said. He also claimed that Israel wants to control the entire region.
While Turkey seems happy to give Al-Arian a base to stir up anti-Israel and anti-American sentiment with Muslims in Turkey and the Middle East in general, President Erdogan also is working with allies within the United States. Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) leaders met Erbas last month at the Turkish government-supported Diyanet Center of America in Lanham, Md. where he said Muslims “need to fight is Islamophobia”.
Wait! Not so fast! Both of these events could be a part of Deep State’s playbook against President Trump. Do you recall that Obama and Erdogan were best buds? Do you think they still are? And could they be even more united by a common enemy called Donald Trump? Is it possible that Obama and Erdogan cooked up a plan to stir up trouble for Trump using CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood? If you think the answer to any or all of these questions might be ‘yes’, you might be right.
Another question: Is it possible that Obama would unleash an Islamic assassin against Trump?
Remember, two weeks ago, I said that the only reasons a president does not finish a term is due to incapacitation, resignation or impeachment by Congress. But none of these scenarios is currently in the offing.
I also said there is another way to get a President out of office. It is called assassination. The U.S. government used it against John F. Kennedy. However, assassinating Trump would leave Pence in office and others of Trump’s cabinet to take the reigns in such an event. So, unless the Democrats, under the advisement of Barack Obama, intends to fulfill the suggestion offered in the TV series, Designated Survivor, where the entire White House staff is killed during the President’s annual State of the Union address, we will have to wait and see what malicious strategy they will use.
Now, back to the article:
Also, Mahmoud El Sharkawy, spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Egyptian Americans for Freedom and Justice (EAFJ), attended a “special meeting and breakfast” with Erbas at the Maryland Diyanet Center during last month’s visit. El Sharkawy has a close relationship with exiled Muslim Brotherhood leaders living in Turkey. Egypt’s Al-Bawaba newspaper identifies him as a member of the “International Organization of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
CAIR also held its weeklong “Leadership Development Program” for the leaders of its various chapters in conjunction with Georgetown University at the Maryland Diyanet Center last week.
“[The meeting with Erbas] was part of Erdogan government’s systematic and deliberate campaign of wooing U.S. Muslim leaders, mainly Brotherhood figures, with a view of creating a proxy group so that he can mobilise (sic) them for political goals when he needs it down the road,” Turkish journalist Abdullah Bozkurt said.
“I think it undermines the national security of the US when a foreign power, especially a dangerous Islamist like Erdogan, tries to meddle into communal affairs, support proxy groups and provide sanctuary when Islamists kicked out of the U.S.,” Bozkurt said.
Indeed, it does undermine U.S. national security. And it raises the question of interference by the Deep State against President Trump, too. The question is whether President Trump understands the danger he may be in? Erdogan is putting together a mobile force to do his bidding for a specific purpose on American soil. Remember Jeremiah 51:46 – And now, so your heart does not grow faint, and so you don’t become frightened because of the rumors that are heard in the land—a rumor comes one year and then after it another rumor comes the next year about violence in the land and one ruler against another ruler.
Obama’s Deep State is trying to derail President Trump’s administration using the Stock Market to create the illusion that the economy is doing well so that when they dump it, the people will be disheartened over Trump’s lack of ability to run the U.S. government. As a matter of supporting this fact, I just read a headline saying that Trump doesn’t know much about the Stock Market. They’re trying to undermine him. I think it’s possible that Obama is, indeed, planning to assassinate President Trump, too. These two methods of dealing with his successor may not be Obama’s final attempts, either.
In line with the Deep State agenda, Google is now partnered with Islamist terrorists. Google and YouTube are partnering to provide a forum for Islamists who approve of Sharia-imposed “death by stoning.” This Wednesday’s online conference by the British-based Imams Online features a rogues’ gallery of Islamists and virulently anti-Semitic, anti-Israel speakers – and it’s all being done “in official partnership with Google and YouTube.
Google and Youtube use algorithms to affect your searches. In other words, they control what you receive in searches. Is it possible the time will come when they will pull the trigger on searches about how good Trump is doing and that what you will see is how bad he is doing, instead? This would greatly and negatively affect public perception of Trump.
Google is a Deep State operation. Obama and Erdogan may be cooperating to bring President Trump down and most certainly Monday and Tuesday’s Stock Market fluctuations were New World Order made to cuase Americans to stop believing in Trump.
Connect the dots. The enemy will come from everywhere around you, in every situation that is happening at the moment.
For the economy, there will come a day when the New World Order will pull the plug on the Stock Market, and, despite their claims that the Stock Market is not the economy – which is a lie! – people will react, from the economy, by doing bank runs and defaulting on loans. When this happens, when the money at the banks run out, violence will occur all over the place.
I hope you are able to now see how the tendrils of Obama’s friends Erdogan of Turkey and the Deep State in Washington DC are insidiously preparing a big downfall for President Trump and the United States.
I wish I had time to tell you about Egypt’s trouble with ISIS around the Sinai airport and how Israel is working with Egypt in a secret alliance to defeat ISIS there. According to one report, ISIS may be losing on some fronts, but they are not down and out yet.
US troops arrived in Israel for the 9th biennial drill simulating a massive missile attack on Israel.
Also, Dore Gold, the president of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs think tank said this week that a crisis is brewing in the Red Sea. I’ve reported on this upcoming problem many times on Beast Watch News.
There is another potential threat brewing over the Arctic Circle, too. Russia and China are vying to beat the US in the trillion-dollar race to control the Arctic. This has been reported by me many times over the years. As part of the Edomite ‘red’ push for global hegemony, China is pushing its way into the Arctic, announcing last month its ambitions to develop a “Polar Silk Road”.
China moved 300,000 troops closer to the North Korean border this week. One newspaper said China made the move because of U.S. President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address last week that indicates “risks of US military action are growing”. It doesn’t help China’s perception of impending war since President Trump asked the Pentagon to plan a grand parade of the U.S. armed forces in Washington this year to celebrate military strength. These kinds of parades are rare in the United States, but not so rare in Russia and China when they want to muscle flex. Well, it appears Donald is going to do his own muscle flexing.
