Growing anti-Americanism will change the USA/UK world order

Rodrigo Duterte


The President of the Philippines has decided to move further away from the USA:

3 October 2016

TAIPEI —Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is rebalancing his foreign policy away from old ally the United States to former U.S. Cold War foes China and Russia, in a move that may generate a windfall of aid for the developing Southeast Asian country.

Duterte said last month his country would reject U.S. military aid in patrolling the contested South China Sea and fighting a violent Muslim rebel group in his archipelago’s south. The Philippines will cross to “the other side of the ideological barrier,” and work on alliances with China and Russia, the 71-year-old president was quoted telling reporters last week.

China has said it wants talks with Duterte’s government, which took office June 30, to settle a knotty maritime sovereignty issue. Duterte sent an envoy to Hong Kong in August to start making amends. China is likely to provide infrastructure financing for projects the Philippines “so sorely needs,” said Carl Baker, director of programs with the think tank CSIS Pacific Forum.

Beijing has already helped build infrastructure in other poor regions of Southeast Asia, from a pledged $6 billion railway in Laos to Cambodia’s first oil refinery, leading to speculation the Philippines may be next.

“In terms of an economy such as the Philippines, after so many years developing it’s still a question mark over the extent of infrastructure improvement,” said Song Seng Wun, an economist in the private banking unit of CIMB in Singapore. “The Philippine president obviously has seen what Chinese money has done for the Indochinese economy — Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia in particular.” …

Duterte has also said the Philippines would stop working with the U.S. Navy in patrolling the disputed South China Sea after two years of joint exercises. He also asked U.S. military advisers last month to leave Mindanao, the southern island where Philippine forces have stepped up a battle against Muslim insurgents since July.

U.S. military advisers have been in Mindanao 14 years, but some Filipinos fear their presence only makes the Muslims angrier and complicates the Philippine government’s campaign. The United States has also irked Duterte by raising questions about his use of extrajudicial killings to fight the drug trade.

Who would have thought that the Philippines would have moved towards China?

Well, as regular readers of this news page are aware, I have written about that possibility for years. Notice, for example, something I posted here over 5 years ago:

Fidel V. Ramos, a former president of the Philippines, is calling for Pax Asia-Pacifica to replace Pax-Americana:

One of the main sources of tension in Asia nowadays are the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, where the Philippines, Vietnam, China, and others have conflicting claims…

More broadly, the urgent task for Asian statesmen over the next 5-10 years will be to replace the region’s Pax Americana, which has guaranteed regional stability for decades, with a more comprehensive Pax Asia-Pacifica that is built on inclusiveness and burden-sharing. But such an Asia-Pacific peace will be durable only if it is based on a balance of mutual benefits rather than on the balance of power.

Clearly, this concept implies burden-sharing by all Asia-Pacific countries to ensure the region’s harmony and security.

So, despite the conflicts currently between China, Vietnam, and the Philippines there is still interest in developing a Pax Asia-Pacifica to replace Pax-Americana.  This is consistent with biblical prophecy as it indicates that a confederation of Asian powers will come together at the end and many will gather at Armageddon.

The fact that Fidel Ramos hopes for/expects it in the next 5 -10 years is also of interest and is consistent with my own prophetic understanding of these matters.

While one would think that the Philippines would be more wary of the USA than China, at least one major Philippino leader believes that the future is one in which the USA is not the guarantor of peace.  A new world order is developing, and this is an order in which the USA is no longer on top. (Thiel B. Philippine’s Ramos Calling for Pax Asia-Pacifica to Replace Pax-Americana. COGwriter, July 14, 2011)

That is now happening!

But it is not just in the Philippines that leaders are upset with the USA.

Notice something related to Germany:

October 3, 2016

When we first heard the news that the US DOJ had slapped Deutsche Bank with a $14 billion settlement on September 15, a number that looked oddly similar to the $14 billion fine the EU slapped on Apple, we determined that this was likely nothing more than “blowback” on behalf of the US, saying “just a few weeks after the EU slapped Apple with a $14 billion bill for “back taxes,” the U.S. has apparently responded with a $14 billion fine of their own to Deutsche Bank to settle an outstanding probe into the company’s trading of mortgage-backed securities during the financial crisis.”

Today, after three weeks of unprecedented volatility in the stock price of the German lender which sent its shares to all time lows as recently as Friday, Germany has latched on to this line of attack as German politicians accused the US of waging economic war against ­Germany as, in the words of the FT, “concern continues to rise among its political and corporate elite over the future of Deutsche Bank.”

The German parliament’s economics committee chairman Peter Ramsauer, in an interview with Welt am Sonntag, said the move against Deutsche “has the characteristics of an economic war”, adding that the US had a “long tradition” of using every available opportunity to wage what amounted to trade war “if it benefits their own economy”, and the “extortionate damages claims” being made in the case of Deutsche Bank were an example of that. According to the German politician, the threat to force Deutsche Bank to pay a $14 billion fine over its mortgage-backed securities business before the 2008 global crisis “has the characteristics of an economic war.”“Extortionate damages claims” in the case are an example of that, said Ramsauer.

Another German politician, Merkel ally and MEP Markus Ferber suggested, as we did, that the Deutsche Bank investigation is a “tit for tat response” from the US Department of Justice after Brussels imposed a record €13 billion penalty against Apple’s tax misdoings in Europe. It’s not just Apple however: earlier this year, Germany’s Volkswagen agreed to pay $16.5 billion in the US for cheating on American diesel vehicle air pollution tests between 2008 and 2015. The fines still risk growing by billions and VW needs to recall 85,000 vehicles.

So, Germans believe that the USA is causing it major financial problems by engaging in “economic warfare.”

Yet, this is not all. The Germans have been very upset since learning how much the Snowden leaks revealed that the USA was spying on it, both for military and economic purposes (see The Snowden Leaks are Leading to the Destruction of the USA).

Some will say, so what?

But the Germans are really upset with the USA.

As reported here a couple of weeks ago, the protests in Germany against the TTIP agreement were mainly related to anti-Americanism (see TTIP & CETA protests show European anti-Americanism).

Notice also something related to the espionage scandal from a while back:

NSA Spying: The world is laughing at the naive EU leaders

| Posted: 2:07:13, 12:35 | Updated: 2:07:13, 00:50 |

The rulers of Europe were obviously extremely naive: How could it happen that the U.S. install a bug in the middle of the EU embassy in Washington?…

Divide and rule – according to this principle, the Americans went in scrutinizing EU ago by the NSA. With the code name “Dropmire” a bug was smuggled into the EU encrypted fax message…

A central question is how the EU could be so stupid as to leave to join the Americans a bug to the central fax.

What, exactly, is the purpose of the National Security Agency? Security, as its name might suggest? No matter in what system or to what purpose: A monitored human being is not a free human being. And every state that systematically contravenes human rights, even in the alleged service of security, is acting criminally...unexpected flare-up of American imperialism serves as a reminder of the necessity for Europe. Does anyone seriously believe that Obama will ensure the chancellor and her interior minister that the American authorities will respect the rights of German citizens in the future? Only Europe can break the American fantasy of omnipotence. One option would be for Europe to build its own system of networks to prevent American surveillance. Journalist Frank Schirrmacher of the respected Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper recommended that over the weekend.

Notice that some in Germany believe that the EU has been stupid in overly trusting the USA.  Notice that the Germans are incensed with both the USA and the UK.  Many Germans will long remember this and decide that they will always have to mistrust the USA, despite future assurances by the USA. And they want their own espionage system (cf. Revelation 13:15-18).

Notice the following chart:

October 3, 2016

Notice that this chart basically shows that the world’s finances are dominated by the USA and the United Kingdom (abbreviated as ‘GB’ for Great Britain above). It will not stay this way!

Many people want to change the current world order. Furthermore, China just got its currency to have Special Drawing Rights (SDR) with the International Monetary Fund (IMF, see G20, SDR, China, & JR’s ‘Timetable for the Dollar’s Demise’).

Despite the current situation, the President of the Philippines sees China as offering Philippines more opportunity for a time.  And the Germans (abbreviated as ‘DE’ above) believe that the USA is trying to stop them from rising further.

How bad is the anti-American sentiment.  Last month, I noticed the following from Politico (which I put in my article Donald Trump in Prophecy):

Why Europe Secretly Roots For Donald Trump

September 21, 2016

European Parliament President Martin Schulz warned recently that Trump “would be a problem not just for the EU but for the whole world.”

And yet, in some quarters at least, the Trump cloud carries with it at least a sliver of silver lining. No European politician will say so publicly, but to some on the Continent, Trump presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity for emancipation from American influence.

To varying degrees, America-bashing has been a mainstay on both the Right and Left of European politics for decades. From GMOs to Guantanamo, from the drone war to the death penalty, European politicians have rarely had difficulty finding reasons to rail against the U.S.

In fact, the evils of U.S. influence is one of the few things that European politicians from nearly every slice of the political spectrum can agree upon. In Germany, for example, one is just as likely to see an “Ami Go Home” (Ami is German slang for American) poster at a rally for the Left party as at a gathering of the far-right Alternative for Germany.

Just as the EU served as a convenient whipping post for British politicians of all stripes in recent decades, culminating in the Brexit vote, the U.S. serves a similar purpose for many European politicians. Even those who profess a deep commitment to the transatlantic relationship often can’t resist using the U.S. as a rhetorical foil to deflect attention from their own vulnerabilities.

Just last week, Jean-Claude Juncker, hailing the Commission’s crackdown on Apple’s Irish tax penalty in his State of the Union speech, declared: “Europe is not the Wild West.” Anyone listening knew that “Wild West” means America. “We are not the United States of Europe,” Juncker added, to applause from the assembled MEPs. “We are much more diverse in Europe and stronger.”

Most Europeans at the center of Europe’s political spectrum genuinely fear the consequences of a Trump victory and a weakening of the Transatlantic relationship. But others smell an opportunity too good to be allowed to pass.

As long as moderate politicians like President Barack Obama or U.S. Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton occupy the White House, anti-American politicians will find it difficult to turn their rhetoric into reality. A Trump presidency would force a rethink. …

The birth of an EU army: The U.S. has guaranteed Europe’s security for decades through NATO, effectively placing a giant security umbrella over most of the Continent. That reliance doesn’t sit well with everyone.

Though Europe doesn’t have anywhere near the military resources of the U.S. (American military spending accounts for about 75 percent of the NATO total), politicians in France and Germany are eager to get to work on a European defense force. The idea isn’t new and faces myriad hurdles, mainly the question of how to finance it on Europe’s shoestring budget.

Nevertheless, a Trump victory would give the initiative a major boost. As with the trade deal, Trump would likely be happy to let the Europeans fend for themselves. He has made no secret of his distaste for Europe’s reliance on the U.S. military. Conversely, few Europeans would welcome Trump as commander-in-chief. If he wins, proponents of a European army would finally have the compelling argument they’ve been looking for.

I have been saying for a long time that Donald Trump’s rise would encourage the Europeans to arm. Others are starting to come to the same conclusion.

Whether Donald Trump wins or not, his rise is giving some in Europe a reason for Europe to distance itself from the USA as well as to work for its own army. The Brexit vote in the UK has also effectively reduced the UK’s ability to veto the type of European military that many leaders in Europe want. Prophecy reveals that Europe will end up with a “great army” (Daniel 11:25).

The Bible tells of the final time of the Gentiles. (Luke 21:23-24; Revelation 11:2), which means the time when the descendants of Israel will no longer dominate the world scene.

Growing anti-Americanism will be a factor in the rise of the end time European, King of the North, Beast power.  A power that will destroy not only the USA (Daniel 11:39), but also (directly and/or indirectly) its Anglo-Saxon descended allies such as the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand (Jeremiah 30:7; Daniel 8:24).

Forbes’ Brexit Monster is the Beast of Revelation
Various ones have been properly convinced that there is a plan for a European superstate. Forbes’ writer Tom Worstall wrote that the Brexit vote was about the United Kingdom “not joining the monster of the European Union to come.” The Bible tells of a Beast monster that will arise in the end times in Europe. Dr. Thiel cites news reports, as well as the Old and New Testaments, to show that the monster many fear will arise in Europe, despite the vote by the British to exit the European Union.
