Do Godly People Need Help Reading the Scriptures?

Written by Donald Hank on Tuesday, 24 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Varieties of gnostic heresies have often led Christians astray. Rather than something out of the past, they are still with us today, and they still lead Christians astray, with terrible consequences.

Do Godly People Need Help Reading the Scriptures?

I am often asked what I think of the Blood Moons theory, which is tied to religious leaders, notably John Hagee, who use a convoluted analysis of certain passages from the Bible to convince Christians that the Second Coming is imminent and will happen in their lifetimes, something that many Christians have believed since the days of Christ. Something that will be true, at least for a future generation.

Why World Bank Can't Compete With Chinese AIIB

Written by Donald Hank on Friday, 20 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

After years of abuse, with the rise of China the supremacy of the petrodollar system is in question.

Why World Bank Can't Compete With Chinese AIIB

My translation into English of a press conference given by the top China monetary policy expert Chen Yulu appeared in December of 2014 at American Daily Herald. Mr. Chen showed that the internationalization of the RMB had nearly doubled YOY in 2013 and reported that RMB clearing centers were opening up in major European capitals and in Asian countries allied with the US. Based on such data, he predicted meteoric growth of the RMB, namely, in 3-5 years, the Chinese yuan (RMB) could be the third most widely used currency in world trade, even though at the time it was ranked only ninth. Though Mr. Chen emphasized that China did not intend to replace the dollar in world trade, it would be hard to conclude otherwise from the facts and figures he presented.

How the Petrodollar Perpetuates Islamic Terror

Written by Donald Hank on Monday, 16 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Nixon abandoned the gold standard and propped up the dollar with Saudi oil. Are we now about to reap the seeds of destruction planted so long ago?

How the Petrodollar Perpetuates Islamic Terror

Casey Research has done an outstanding job of explaining the origin and workings of the petrodollar.

Saudi Arabia (Not Iran) Ranks 2nd in Religious Persecution, After N. Korea

Written by Donald Hank on Tuesday, 10 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

The political elite badly want Americans to blindly hate Iran. That this is a staple of daily propaganda in the US makes it especially suspect. And, in fact, Iran appears to be a veritable fount of freedom when compared to favored US ally Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia (Not Iran) Ranks 2nd in Religious Persecution, After N. Korea

When discussing or analyzing reports from the Muslim world, we need to always keep in mind: The Saudis are SUNNI (the more fundamentalist and violent sect) while Iran (along with Syria) is predominantly SHIITE, a sect that is less radical and violent toward other religions and sects of Islam. The actual differences in behavior of these sects are less due to theology than to culture.

Here we go again: Bibi pulls a Dubbya

Written by Donald Hank on Monday, 09 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

The political elites that run the government are attempting again to mislead the American people into fighting a war that is in no one's interests.

Here we go again: Bibi pulls a Dubbya

There are 2 important developments that Americans need to keep their eye on:

U.S. vs us

Written by Donald Hank on Saturday, 07 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

A new peer-reviewed study finds what most attentive Americans have known for some time, that political elites run America from behind the curtain and that the apparent calamities of our foreign and domestic policies are no accident.

U.S. vs us

Groping about in a thickening fog of cognitive dissonance, Americans absurdly refer to two antagonistic groups as the "US," namely, (1) the American people (We the People) and (2) the American political class. These two classes are divided by a vast gulf, which is only growing wider, to the extent that an increasing number of voters are staying home on election days. The term "US ally," in the vernacular of the media and politicians, is de facto only an ally for the political class, although they will insist that their allies are our allies (if you are not for us you are against us – meaning US (2) but slyly suggesting US (1)) because they want to deceive us into thinking we and our "leaders" all have the same interests at heart, when in fact, the interests of the elites are wholly antagonistic to our interests. Thus, as counterintuitive as it may seem, the arch enemy of the American people is truly not a foreign power, as we are led to believe, but the political class in Washington, DC, as I attempted to show here.

Effete Elites Will Not And Cannot Fight

Written by Donald Hank on Monday, 02 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Bullies have taken away our rights, upended the Constitution and imposed new regulations without Congressional approval. But, they are empowered only so long as the people fail to oppose them. Remember the opening line of the Constitution:We the people...

Effete Elites Will Not And Cannot Fight

I just got done reading a news report in an email from Dutch radio station BNR (Business News Radio). It seems a member of the Dutch 2nd Chamber by the name of Buma made an angry speech condemning the hypocrisy of the Euro Zone, which gave Greece only 4 months to get its house in order or lose its opportunity for a new loan arrangement but gave France, which also has an illegal deficit, 2 more years, until 2017, to get its house in order. Don't worry. Predictably, neither country will comply.

US Elites: Can’t Make Peace? Make Way For Someone Who Can

Written by Donald Hank on Wednesday, 18 February 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

People who want a fair and negotiated peace in the Middle East are vanishingly rare. More common by far are those extremists on all sides who seem eager for war and bloodshed.

US Elites: Can’t Make Peace? Make Way For Someone Who Can

Don Feder recently wrote an article titled “Christians and Jews – Same Boat, Same Sharks,” showing that Christians and Jews are both targeted by ISIS, the terrorist du jour in the Middle East, and should therefore understand each other’s situation and help each other out.

Divide and Conquer not Working Out for US Elites

Written by Donald Hank on Thursday, 12 February 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

The behind-the-scenes skullduggery of US foreign policy pitting Russia vs China has been an abject failure and the elites who devised it and implement it are looking increasingly like the deer in the headlights.

Divide and Conquer not Working Out for US Elites

Something smelled rotten back in the 70s when Nixon and Kissinger started pushing Most Favored Nation (MFN) status for China, claiming, absurdly, that China was a potential market for US goods, even though China couldn't afford them at the time. It was an obvious lie and naturally, smart people knew there had to be an ulterior motive.

The Alternate Media Are Catching Up To Me

Written by Donald Hank on Friday, 23 January 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

If the Satanic forces in Washington succeed in taking out Assad and plunging Syria into chaos, it is hard to imagine salvation for the US. What kind of God would forgive us?

The Alternate Media Are Catching Up To Me

Back on June 15 of last year, I wrote an article so controversial and scary that some of my usual blog publishers passed on it. I knew they would and I knew why. I had come out and said that Washington DC was the seat of the Muslim caliphate, and I had provided details to demonstrate that.

Good Jihadi Bad Jihadi, the Winning Formula

Written by Donald Hank on Friday, 16 January 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Western elitists among the ruling intelligentsia have become apologists for Islam and Jihad, and they are leading Western culture to its death.

Good Jihadi Bad Jihadi, the Winning Formula

Have you noticed?

Even though Angela Merkel took part in the "I am Charlie" demo, she condemned "hate" (just before a German newspaper was torched by Muslims) and continued to badmouth Pegida, the German grassroots group trying to slow or stop the rampant immigration from Muslims countries.

Europe: Nous sommes tous des Islamophobes

Written by Donald Hank on Tuesday, 13 January 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

With the terror attacks in France, Europe, heretofore blind to the dangers of its progressive addiction to tolerance, confronts a new, more divisive and dangerous, world.

Europe: Nous sommes tous des Islamophobes

There is a mass demo in Paris this morning, which I watched for about an hour on cable channel TV 5.

Charlie Hebdo: Sad People Don’t Fight

Written by Donald Hank on Tuesday, 13 January 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Don't be surprised by the ruling oligarchs' lack of action in stopping terrorism. The ruling class likes its subjects to feel defeated and fearful.

Charlie Hebdo: Sad People Don’t Fight

An old friend, a linguist who follows the original-language versions of the European press, asked me if I was saddened at the terror attack on Charlie Hebdo in France yesterday. My response:

Is the Dollar REALLY Getting Stronger?

Written by Donald Hank on Tuesday, 06 January 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

It looks as if the dollar has a rosy future, but only if you don't pay attention to China.

Is the Dollar REALLY Getting Stronger?

You've probably heard that the dollar is getting stronger against other currencies these days. Short sighted investors are pretending this means that the USD will never fall as long as they walk the earth.

Warning From Top Chinese Monetary Policy Maker

on Tuesday, 23 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Chinese monetary expert Chen Yulu: "...the United States accounts for 20% of the global total economy, but supplies 52% of international currency as a public good. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak."

Warning From Top Chinese Monetary Policy Maker

My translation of a report in Economic Daily (Jingji Ribao) on the July 20, 2014 interview with Chen Yulu re. RMB internationalization follows below.
