Christine Lagarde, new head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), predicted "real nasty consequences" for the global economy if the U.S. fails to raise its debt ceiling. So? What about the even "nastier" consciences for America if she does? It has become a fore-drawn conclusion that the "savior of the world" must once again be the "sacrificial lamb" that allows the economies of the world to flourish as her own lifeblood slowly ebbs away.
Why? America is the last bastion of free enterprise not under international control. This cannot be allowed to continue. The foundation is now being laid for a new monetary policy that will require the economic systems of the world to come under singular control. Surprisingly, this convergence was predicted two millennia ago:
"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" (Revelation 13:16-17).
