A thousand years ago, when money meant coins, China invented paper currency. Now the Chinese government is minting cash digitally, in a re-imagination of money that could shake a pillar of American power.

It is obvious that the world is on the cusp of a complete and total, once-in-a-millennium paradigm shift with regards to national and global currency, and it is equally obvious that digital money like cryptocurrency is readying itself to replace paper money. But for the bible believer, we’ve seen this coming for the last 30 years, why? Because the Mark of the Beast from Revelation 13 shows us that the Mark is implantable, digital currency that allows you to buy and sell things. See? Not so hard to understand Revelation, is it? The Mark of the Beast is cryptocurrency that goes inside your body.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18 (KJB)

That is why you see all of the big tech titans spending millions and billions to create digital money and cryptocurrency, with devices that go inside your body, in unwitting obedience to the scripture of truth contained in your dime store King James Bible. Kinda funny how all that works, isn’t it? And yes, you are watching the Mark of the Beast system coming into place.

China Creates its Own Digital Currency, a First for Major Economy

FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: It might seem money is already virtual, as credit cards and payment apps such as Apple Pay in the U.S. and WeChat in China eliminate the need for bills or coins. But those are just ways to move money electronically. China is turning legal tender itself into computer code.

Cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin have foreshadowed a potential digital future for money, though they exist outside the traditional global financial system and aren’t legal tender like cash issued by governments. China’s version of a digital currency is controlled by its central bank, which will issue the new electronic money. It is expected to give China’s government vast new tools to monitor both its economy and its people. By design, the digital yuan will negate one of bitcoin’s major draws: anonymity for the user.

Beijing is also positioning the digital yuan for international use and designing it to be untethered to the global financial system, where the U.S. dollar has been king since World War II. China is embracing digitization in many forms, including money, in a bid to gain more centralized control while getting a head start on technologies of the future that it regards as up for grabs.

“In order to protect our currency sovereignty and legal currency status, we have to plan ahead,” said Mu Changchun, who is shepherding the project at the People’s Bank of China.

Digitized money could reorder the fundamentals of finance the way Amazon.com Inc. disrupted retailing and Uber Technologies Inc. rattled taxi systems.

That an authoritarian state and U.S. rival has taken the lead to introduce a national digital currency is propelling what was once a wonky topic for cryptocurrency theorists into a point of anxiety in Washington.

Asked in recent weeks how digitized national currencies such as China’s might affect the dollar, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell have said the issue is being studied in earnest, including whether a digital dollar makes sense someday. The dollar has faced challengers before—the euro, to name one—only to grow more important when rivals’ shortcomings became apparent. The dollar far outstrips all other currencies for use in international foreign-exchange trades, at 88% in the latest rankings from the Bank for International Settlements. The yuan was used in just 4%.

Digitization wouldn’t by itself make the yuan a rival for the dollar in bank-to-bank wire transfers, analysts and economists say. But in its new incarnation, the yuan, also known as the renminbi, could gain traction on the margins of the international financial system.

 It would provide options for people in poor countries to transfer money internationally. Even limited international usage could soften the bite of U.S. sanctions, which increasingly are used against Chinese companies or individuals. Josh Lipsky, a former International Monetary Fund staffer now at the Atlantic Council think tank, said, “Anything that threatens the dollar is a national-security issue. This threatens the dollar over the long term.” READ MORE

Did You Know That The Biden Administration Is Allowing Communist China To Set Up Secret Police ‘Service Stations’ In The United States?

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Communist China has opened dozens of ‘overseas police service stations’ around the globe to monitor its citizens living abroad, including one location in New York City and three in Toronto.

While they distract you with nonsense about Donald Trump and ‘Russian collusion’, in reality the Democrats are opening the floodgates to Communist China here in the United States. The Chinese Secret Police have been allowed to open up a ‘service station’ armed with Chinese police, to ‘keep an eye’ on Chinese citizens in New York, and when they find them, force them to return to China. Who on earth thought that this was a good idea? The New World Order Democrats love it. Up in Canada, they have three such service stations.

“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.” Revelation 16:12 (KJB)

America in 2022 is a nation who has forgotten its identity, a nation that is weak and disorganized, a nation that is ripe for takeover. In Russia, Putin is succeeding in gradually drawing in NATO and the US into his little war, and now we have the Communist Chinese Secret Police setting up shop in the exact same city where the Towers were intentionally brought down to bring in the Patriot Act. Here’s a fun fact, the world’s most-visited website and the world’s most-popular app is TikTok, that is downloading private data from each and every American who uses it. Wake up, America, the wolf is past the door and in the house.

Communist China has opened police stations in US and Canada to monitor Chinese citizens

FROM THE NY POST: “These operations eschew official bilateral police and judicial cooperation and violate the international rule of law, and may violate the territorial integrity in third countries involved in setting up a parallel policing mechanism using illegal methods,” reads a report by Safeguard Defenders, a human rights watchdog, released earlier this month.

The report, titled “110 Overseas: Chinese Transnational Policing Gone Wild,” details China’s extensive efforts to combat “fraud” by its citizens living overseas, in part by opening several police stations on five continents that have assisted Chinese authorities in “carrying out policing operations on foreign soil.”

Europe is home to most of the police stations, with locations spread across the continent in places such as London, Amsterdam, Prague, Budapest, Athens, Paris, Madrid and Frankfurt. North America is also home to four of the stations, with three locations in Toronto and one in New York City. In all, there are 54 such stations in 30 different countries.

The report details how China has attempted to “combat the growing issue of fraud and telecommunication fraud by Chinese nationals living abroad,” running operations that have resulted in 230,000 Chinese nationals being “persuaded to return” to China “voluntarily” over the last year to face criminal prosecution.

The Chinese government has claimed that the stations provide vital services to its citizens living abroad, though the report notes that many of the services are those that would be traditionally carried out by an overseas embassy. Instead, the report argues that the stations have been used to enhance China’s overseas law enforcement capabilities in possible violation of international law. The report also outlines the potential human rights abuses associated with the stations, including using harassment and intimidation methods, such as threatening the family members of the overseas citizens. The stations have also served as centers to spread Chinese government propaganda and monitor the behavior and opinions of Chinese nationals.

“As these operations continue to develop, and new mechanisms are set up, it is evident that countries governed by the standards set by universal human rights and the rule of law urgently need to investigate these practices to identify the (local) actors at work, mitigate the risks and effectively protect the growing number of those targeted,” the report concludes.

According to a report, China has opened illegal police stations worldwide. The move comes amid its quest to emerge as a global superpower.

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army Releases Video Strongly Indicating Their Willingness To Shoot Down Nancy Pelosi’s Plane If It Goes To Taiwan

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army has issued another warning to Nancy Pelosi ahead of her expected trip to Taiwan with a video simulating a missile strike, aircraft carriers advancing and fighter jets in formation – and a stern warning from state media.

What Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and the ‘failing and flailing’ Democrats need right now more than anything else is a really, good distraction. The American people, so easily deceived and led down the garden path due to their short attention span, need to be distracted from gas prices, Bidenflation, and the ‘technical recession’ Democrats say doesn’t exist. So since monkeypox hasn’t distracted too many people, try though they may, maybe having Nancy Pelosi shot out of the sky by the Read Army will do the trick. At the very least, it’s a pretty good distraction.

“Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?” Isaiah 60:8 (KJB)

One one hand, it’s not overly likely that China will shoot Nancy Pelosi out of the sky, but then again, former Democratic National Committee head Ron Brown didn’t think he was booked on a one-way flight, either. We live in an age and time where literally anything is possible. Global lockdowns? Sure. Forced injections of citizens? Yep, we got that. Digital ID? On it’s way. Nancy Pelosi? If the New World Order decides that their cause is better served with her plane blown to pieces, you can bet the farm it will be.

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army has issued another warning to Nancy Pelosi ahead of potential trip

FROM DAILY MAIL UK: The video was posted on WeChat on Monday morning following reports the U.S. House Speaker will arrive in Taipei on Tuesday night – despite Beijing warning they could shoot her plane down and launch a military response.

Chinese state media personality Hu Xijin also issued a grim message to the top Democrat: ‘Let her go to Taiwan. But pray before departure: wish herself a safe journey and wish herself not be defined by history as a sinner who starts a spiral of escalation process expanding military frictions to a large-scale war in the Taiwan Strait.’ Senior Taiwanese government officials and a US official both told CNN that the stop is on her trip, even though it is not on her public itinerary.

Reports from TVBS News in Taiwan have said Pelosi could arrive in Taipei as early as tomorrow night and her team has booked two hotels, although there is no mention of the visit in her official itinerary. The US official added that defense department officials were working on securing a plan to keep her safe, according to CNN.  The visit will inflame tensions with China, which considers Taiwan one of its own territories.

Amid the threat, Taiwanese officials reportedly have cancelled leave for soldiers and officers ‘to immediately prepare’ for the prospect of war.

Last Friday, Chinese state media said the government was prepared to shoot Pelosi’s plane down if it was detected in its airspace accompanied by a fighter jet escort.

The latest warning was issued during a Chinese foreign ministry briefing by spokesperson Zhao Lijian, who said that because of Pelosi’s status as the ‘No. 3 official of the US government’, a visit to Taiwan, which China claims as its own, would ‘lead to egregious political impact’.

Lijian added that it would be ‘a gross interference in China’s internal affairs’ and would lead to ‘very serious developments and consequences.’ READ MORE

Tensions Mount In South China Sea As Chinese Communist Party Official Threatens To ‘Shoot Down’ Nancy Pelosi’s Plane If It Flies To Taiwan

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

As tensions mount over US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s potential trip to Taiwan, the Chinese navy has been monitoring the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier’s activities in the South China Sea.

A Chinese Communist Party mouthpiece said on Friday that it could shoot down Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plane if she makes a stop in Taiwan, a move he said is tantamount to an “invasion” of the island. If US fighter jets escort Pelosi’s plane into Taiwan, it is invasion. The PLA has the right to forcibly dispel Pelosi’s plane and the US fighter jets, including firing warning shots and making tactical movement of obstruction. If ineffective, then shoot them down. That message on Twitter has since been removed.

“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.” Revelation 16:12 (KJB)

Personally, I do not see China ‘shooting down’ Nancy Pelosi’s plane should she actually take her proposed trip to Taiwan, but that’s not to say that China will just sit idly by and watch it happen. China has no intention of letting go of Taiwan, and just as Russia invaded Ukraine, the possibility of China mobilizing in Taiwan is fairly high. One thing’s for sure, though, the ‘big three’ in end times prophecy – China, Russia and Iran – have all been quite active, and there is no reason to think that won’t continue and escalate. As far as China is concerned, I think Nancy Pelosi is using this proposed trip to Taiwan to attempt to jumpstart a failing Democrat Party sagging under the dead weight of Biden’s  impotent pretend presidency.

Pelosi Taiwan visit: region ‘tense’ as Chinese navy watches US warships, holds drills in South China Sea

FROM MSN: The nuclear-powered warship was cruising about 185km (115 miles) from the contested Fiery Cross Reef in the Spratlys chain on Thursday, according to publicly available satellite images. Two other vessels – identified by Vietnam-based maritime observer Duan Dang as a Chinese Type 052D destroyer and a Type 054A frigate – were seen 27km and 23km away.

The Reagan and its carrier strike group left Singapore on Monday and headed for the South China Sea, as Pelosi’s trip – which she has not confirmed – causes a ruckus, with Beijing warning that the United States will face “forceful measures” if it goes ahead.

“Preparing for war!” This short social media post by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) 80th Group Army generated over 300,000 thumbs-up in 12 hours on Friday, amid high morale among Chinese soldiers ahead of the 95th anniversary of the founding of the PLA and escalating tensions across the Taiwan Straits.

Beijing sees it as a move that would “seriously violate China’s sovereignty” – it regards Taiwan as part of its territory and has vowed to bring the self-ruled island under its control. The People’s Liberation Army has called on the US to commit to its pledge not to support independence in Taiwan.

Pelosi, despite being an American lawmaker and not an official of the executive branch which spearheads foreign policy, has been repeatedly described by Beijing as the “No 3 of the US government”.

The US aircraft carrier strike group – which includes the USNS Tippecanoe replenishment oiler and the USS Antietam cruiser – has been travelling northeast and if the vessels continue in that direction they will reach the Taiwan Strait.

It comes as the PLA Navy is conducting routine military drills off its southern coast near Guangdong, following exercises in nearby Hainan province.

An area in the South China Sea about 89km from Macau will be closed to ships on Saturday for military exercises, according to a notice issued by China’s Maritime Safety Administration. The Gulf of Tonkin off southwestern Guangdong will also be a no-go zone on Tuesday and Wednesday while gunnery exercises are carried out. READ MORE

Chinese officials have threatened military action if U.S. house speaker Nancy Pelosi visits Taiwan during a congressional trip to Asia. China claims the self-ruling island of Taiwan is a part of its territory. Christina Ruffini has more.
