CIVIL WAR COMING WITH MAJOR REVIVALS
During my soaking prayer time I keep getting CIVIL WAR. Well interesting is The Movie Marvel Movie CIVIL WAR is on the Day of National Day of Prayer. As I looked at the Poster board its says Divided we Fall. Well Scripture says,
A House Divided Cannot Stand
22 Then one was brought to Him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute; and He healed him, so that the blind and[a] mute man both spoke and saw. 23 And all the multitudes were amazed and said, “Could this be the Son of David?”
24 Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, “This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub,[b] the ruler of the demons.”
25 But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. 26 If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? 27 And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. 28 But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you.
Devil's plans is to cause division. But The Lord's plan is to bring Unity.
How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Lord show me in April that The Spiritual Real and The Natural Realm are coming closer Together
In April When Asuza Now happening. you noticed that it was Raining in the Nature and The Spiritual Realm.
Moving on, MAJOR REVIVALS
MAJOR REVIVALS broke out in the Civil War armies. In the Union Army, between 100,000 and 200,000 soldiers were converted; among Confederate forces, approximately 150,000 troops converted to Christ. Perhaps 10 percent of all Civil War soldiers experienced conversions during the conflict.
Abraham Lincoln, though he knew the Bible thoroughly and spoke often of an Almighty God, was never baptized and was the only United States president never to join a church.
By 1860, there were nearly 4,000,000 slaves in the United States. One of every seven Americans belonged to another. (Yet most Confederate soldiers didn’t own any slaves.)
Before 1830, many leaders in the anti-slavery movement came from the South.
A “Great Revival” occurred among Robert E. Lee’s forces in the fall of 1863 and winter of 1864. Some 7,000 soldiers were converted. Revivals also swept the Union Army at that time. Sometimes preaching and praying continued 24 hours a day, and chapels couldn’t hold the soldiers who wanted to get inside.
Chapels often were built in soldiers’ quarters. In 1864, the Army of Northern Virginia alone boasted 15 chapels. One chapel built by the Army of the Tennessee seated more than 1,000 people.
Before the Civil War, it was rare to find chaplains in American armies. During the war, they earned a lasting place.
The Constitution of the Confederate States of America specifically invoked “Almighty God”—unlike the Constitution of the Union. Further, the Confederate Constitution prohibited the foreign slave trade.
What Was Meant for Evil, God Uses for Good
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive. — Genesis 50:20

Blood Moons, Volcanos, Last Trumpet Perry Stone 2014-2015
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1N8.... There are 3 things that are hidden from us. 1) the day of our death. 2 ) the day of trouble - it comes upon us unexpectedly. 3) The return of the Lord for the church. He spoke on the Feast Days. Saying that the Rapture would happen on the Fall feast because of the many trumpets blown on this feast day. The last trump is connected to the Fall feast. The Feast of trumpets. He also spoke about Matthew 24:36 how it is connected to Roshashanna, the 48 hour window when the Priest would see the sliver of moon. No man know the day or the hour. He closed out with THE BLOOD MOONS. He said that there were 3 things that must happen to show that we are really in the last days, or if this was just another lunar cycle. The Scriptures he used was Joel 2:28-31. 1) The sun has to turn to darkness in Joel 2:31 must fall in line with the Blood moons. 2) In Joel 2:30 And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire and pillars of smoke - is volcanic activity and eruption underneath the earth. This must happen before the tribulation period. 3) He said that in the next 15 months if you start seeing the ring of fire, massive volcanic eruption underneath the earth/Indonesia etc before the great and awesome day of the Lord. -This is it. Joel 2:28-31 must happen before the tribulation period. Last days dreams and visions also must happen. This is already unfolding. Every one keep a close eye on the volcanic activity. The moon must turn to blood also before the great and awesome day of the Lord.

Chuck Pierce: Prophecies for Malaysia and Thailand
Prophecies for Malaysia and ThailandThank you so much for praying and giving toward our trip to Asia. That assignment was non-stop, but we saw breakthrough from Korea to Thailand to Malaysia. As I previously shared, it is difficult to navigate through Malaysia's political and religious factions. In the middle of one of my sessions, Daniel Ho, a leading apostolic leader, received a call from the state's Sultan (Islamic leadership) to come in for questioning. The week before, his fellowship had hosted a "thanksgiving meal" where people of other faiths were invited. The religious police actually stormed his facility, creating national and international news. I made time to visit their church, and immediately sensed an incredible angelic presence.
I then remembered the word the Lord had given me early on the morning of Sunday, June 26: "Daniel will withstand his testing!" At the time I received it, I really did not know to whom or what it applied. However, when I was with Apostle Daniel, the Spirit of God quickened that word and I declared it over him. He will need great wisdom and favor as he moves through the legal process that may ensue. Continue to lift him up as well as the other apostles of God's Kingdom in the nation of Malaysia.
Incredible revelation came forward in every meeting. Below are several of the prophecies that were released during our time there:
"You Have Entered Your Next Three Years"
And the Lord would say to Malaysia, "You have entered your next three years. This night represents a transition into the three years ahead. The warfare will grow very strong in the next sixteen months. Do not, do not, do not back off, but enter into celebration and enter into rejoicing. And in the midst of the warfare coming against you there will be breakthrough after breakthrough after breakthrough for My people in this land!
"You will enter the season called 'contending,' but these three years I am changing the rule of the heavens. I am changing the rule of the heavens, because tonight represents that in the earth realm. My people are taking a stand in a new way, and where they have not been fully understood in one season, I will now raise them up and they will begin to rule the atmosphere of the heavens in this land.
"These three years are important to understand. You are entering your next three-year transition this night. From this, a new administration is beginning. You are moving into a Kingdom administration that has never been fully expressed in this land or that which has come from this land to other lands.
"You have been waiting for Me, but I have been waiting for you. I have been waiting for you to get positioned, because I have a sound in you that has never developed and come forth with power. This year, choose for the sound of Malaysia to rise up in the worship of this rainbow nation. And if you will do that, I will unlock the riches of the promise that I have put over the land. If you'll worship from north to south, and from east to west, and then gather for three days, I will re-sanctify this land in days ahead. You are a people that will roar mightily in days ahead, so allow Me to draw My sound out of you.
"Enter in With Me"
"There will be a consolidating of ministries. I am going to have people cross over and I'm going to cause them to begin to be grafted into new councils, in new ways. I am going to cause revelation from one season to be brought into a new season. I am going to cause a people to be trained up to hear. I am going to cause a people to rise up to worship. Behold, I do a new thing and you are on the verge of entering in that new thing. You are closer than you know.
"Come beyond your 11 season and enter with Me into 12. But enter in with Me and know there is a new administration, and a new way of doing things, and a new core mission, and a new way of aligning. Recognize the fathers and mothers in your midst and enter in with Me. And if you will enter in, I will come with My power, I will come with My glory, and I will create a people that begin to express Me in a way that will shake the lands around this nation.
"For the dragon nations are now at a place of choice. But I have a people who I am rising up like oxen and lions. And because I am rising up the oxen and lions in My nations, they will roar with a sound that changes the atmosphere and creates a new prophetic covering. I have new sounds and new songs over you. I have new ways of expression I am calling you to. I have new ways of prosperity. For I am a God, who, if you align with My covenant, you will prosper.
"I am preparing the people to come up out of the wilderness as a Bride to meet Me in a new way. I am preparing a people who are going to raise the veil from the last season and see Me new and fresh in a new season." (I saw a lace veil of His glory coming down on the people, and they only needed to reach up into it!) The Lord says, "I'm clothing you for a new season. I'm clothing you. I'm giving you new identities. This new identity that I'm putting on you is creating conflict where you walk and what you do. You will have grace to deal with your conflict."
Some of you are pressing for your life out of the last season. You have had bad diagnoses physically, and the Lord says you're going to press out! Watch the signs. I hear Him saying there will be dramatic healings in this new season. Dramatic healings! That's what God is saying. I don't know even what that means. Dramatic healings in the new season.
"You Will Now Dance a New Dance of Triumph and Victory!"
The Lord said, "There will be such a worship shift. For this new veil will enable you to dance in a way you've never danced before. The wedding dance is beginning over Malaysia, and His people will dance. Where they couldn't dance in the last 16 years, they will now dance a new dance of triumph and victory!"
Continue to pray for the worship shift which must occur in Malaysia. Whereas Korea and Thailand have broken into a new dimension of worship, the Body of Christ in Malaysia must go beyond where they have been before and enter a new season where their worship presses them past conflict and contention, into a level of authority and victory they have never before experienced.
When we were in Thailand in August 2008, I prophesied, "Get ready! You will open the gateway of the divine worship." When we returned in October 2010, I prophesied that "the world would know Thailand as the Land of Worship." Consequently, Apostle Nimit saw the need to host a gathering that would focus on: Unlocking the true call to worship of the Thai people.

The Bible says that in the last days, men’s hearts will fail them for fear. I believe we live in an era that has been prophesied for millennia.
The earth suffers all manner of geophysical, economic, political, religious, and war issues. We see fear mounting in the hearts of men and women across the globe. Truly, it is a difficult time — for those who don’t know God. However, for those who do know God, this time doesn’t need to be difficult. If we are willing, it could be the most exciting time of our lives.
In Judges 7 when Gideon finally realized there was no reason for him to be afraid anymore, the Bible says he “worshipped.” The Hebrew word used here for worship implies that you first bow in humility, then you stand to your feet, raise your hands and in a loud voice proclaim God’s glory. That is a very brave thing to do when you’re right outside the enemy’s camp.
But something had happened to this man, who had once hidden from his enemies in a winepress and described himself as the weakest person he knew. Essentially, he stood up, and in the face of all his fears, he declared, “You can’t kill me! Nothing you can do can harm me. I can defeat you. The angel has said it. God has shown it. I will do it.”
Fear and faith
It is difficult for fear and faith to exist in their fullness in the same place at the same time. Both are the belief that something that hasn’t happened is going to happen. Fear is the expectation of something bad, and faith is the expectation of something good. One cancels out, or neutralizes, the other, and one or the other is going to exist as the plumb line of a person’s life.
Fear produces a desperate survivalist mentality. We dare not help the person next to us because if we do, we might fall off the cliff ourselves. The more self-concerned and self-focused we are, the fewer people we impact, because all of our effort and energy is consumed with ourselves. Gideon was hiding in a winepress! What impact did he have on his community while in a winepress?
Yet it was there, in the winepress, that God met him and proclaimed him to be a mighty man of valor. The winepress was not his destiny, though he clearly thought it was. Instead, God called him a hero, and a hero is what he became.
Out of weakness made strong
The people of God are not born strong. We become strong:
"And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets: who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle."
Out of weakness, God’s people are made strong. We become valiant in battle. We don’t start out valiant — we become valiant.
The enemy has created a realm of fear to keep us shackled to inaccurate images and concepts of who we are. But God wants to take you and raise you up as a hero. He wants to take the “impossible” destiny He has written for you and bring it into existence.
I will never forget what the Lord once spoke to me: There is no limit to what I can do if you can restore hope in the heart of the people.
Faith is “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). What do you hope to become? Who has God called you to be? The day is coming when you, like Gideon, will stand before your foes and declare, “You are defeated!”

Did you know Nasa says COMET ELENIN is coming to the Earth.
COMET ELENIN CLOSEST TO THE EARTH
ON OCT 20TH 2011
ON SEPT 25TH 2011
COMET ELENIN , EARTH, SUN, AND MERCURY IN LINE.
.Well This May cause strange Weather paterns, Earthquakes. etc.
Comet Elenin related to earthquakes? from Oliver Silverstein on Vimeo.
GET AWAY FROM FAULT LINES, AND MAJOR CITIES.
Is (Comet?) Elenin Causing The Devastating Earthquakes?
On December 10, 2010, just a few short months ago, supposedly a Russian amateur astronomer by the name of Leonid Elenin, using a 0.45-m (about 18 inches) reflector telescope, discovered a "comet" that is destined to pass relatively close to Earth in September, October and November of 2011 (this year).
You can read the Wikipedia page about Elenin here: Comet C/2010 X1 (Elenin)
There are many troubling factors regarding this alleged "comet." In the video below, I use the trajectory tool from NASA's jet propulsion laboratory to reveal three very incredible "coincidences." These are very alarming, or at least they are to me.
Using this tool, I show that three devastating earthquakes of the past year have all happened on the exact day, or within a couple of days, of a perfect alignment of the Sun, the Earth, and Elenin. To tool in the video below is taken directly from NASA's website. You can replicate what I do in the video by going to NASA's website and using the tool yourself. You can find the page with the tool here:
Here's the video, simply click play. My commentary continues below.
In the video above, there are three major earthquakes, and each is associated with an alignment of Elenin, Earth, and the Sun. Here are the dates, alignment, and distance of Elenin from Earth:
Date Location Alignment Distance Magnitude
February 27, 2010 Pelluhue, Chile Elenin-Earth-Sun 6.04 AU 8.8
September 4, 2010 Christchurch, NZ Elenin-Sun-Earth 6.26 AU 7.2
March 11, 2011 Tohoku, Japan Elenin-Earth-Sun 2.16 AU 9.0
As I see it, there are two possibilities. First, Elenin is indeed merely a comet and these alignments are mere coincidence, and nothing more. Once would be a mighty large coincidence. Twice would be borderline far-fetched. Three times goes beyond the realm of coincidence in my mind, and leads me to rule out mere chance. I'm leaning towards a connection between Elenin and earthquakes.
Which brings up the second possibility, that Elenin is somehow involved with triggering devastating temblors here on Earth.
I find it very peculiar that "Leonid Elenin" discovered this celestial body (I am not calling it a comet for reasons that will follow). There are only two pictures of Leonid Elenin online. This person seems to not have existed before 2008. That makes me wonder...
Also, amateur astronomers that I've talked to report that "comet" Elenin cannot been found in the sky where it is reported to be, even though it is much closer than Jupiter. If Leonid could discover, with an 18-inch telescope, this "comet" over three months ago when it was more than twice the distance from the Earth compared to now, why can't amateur astronomers using the same 18-inch telescope view Elenin today, especially when it's location is directly pin-pointed by NASA?
Is it possible that Elenin isn't a comet at all? To me, that seems likely. If it is not a comet, then what exactly is it? That's a question that I have for NASA. Could Elenin be dark matter? A brown dwarf star? Something as yet undiscovered? After all, the first brown dwarf was discovered just 17 years ago, in 1994.
If Elenin is just a comet, it certainly would NOT have the gravitational pull necessary to stress the Earth's crust to the degree needed to cause the earthquakes listed above. If Elenin is a brown dwarf, that would explain why it cannot be seen, as brown dwarfs are very difficult to detect.
An astronomical unit (AU) is the distance from the Earth to the Sun. If Elenin has caused the earthquakes listed above when it was several AUs from Earth, how much worse will be the damage when it is less than half of an AU from Earth?
I claim not to have the answers. Nor do I claim that the future dates shown in the video above will witness catastrophic events here on Earth. What I do know is those earthquakes happened. I do know that this trajectory tool for Elenin's path is provided by NASA. I do know that every time there was an Earth-Sun-Elenin alignment, there was a severe earthquake here on Earth. I do know that NASA's tool shows Elenin coming much, much close to Earth later this year. I do know there are two more alignments yet to come. I do know Earth will be passing through Elenin's path.
Regrettably, I also do know there is a total silence from officialdom regarding the issues raised in my video.
Lastly, for the conspiracy-minded, if Leonid Elenin doesn't exist (as there are no records of him existing prior to 2008), who chose the name of this fictitious person, and why? Leonid translates to "meteor shower."
And Elenin? Where did that come from? Take the first three letters from each of these numbers:
ELEven and NINe
9 and 11. Do those numbers have any significance?
I'll have more to say about this in the coming days...
Cornell University has just published a paper by Dr. Mensur Omerbashich of the European Royal Society, and is titled, "Astronomical alignments as the cause of M6+ seismicity."
You can view it here: Comet Elenin
Dr. Omerbashich concludes that "Comet C/2010 X1 (Elenin) has been adding to robustness in terms of very strong seismicity since 2007," and that "Elenin will continue intensifying the Earth's very strong seismicty until August-October, 2011."
In the coming days and weeks I will be continuing to publish updates regarding the approach of Elenin, and what disasters might unfold as a result. In discussing this with my scientific sources, those disasters will not be limited to earthquakes. I would invite you to subscribe to my daily report in order to receive new information in the most timely manner possible.

Idaho to be first Chinese state:
Governor Butch Otter, in league with notorious Marxist, B. Hussein Obama, have hatched a plan to make Idaho the first Chinese owned state in America. Otter and company have named this Project 60. Sounds innocent enough, until you realize that Otter and his minions are afraid to call it what it is, globalization of America and surrender of sovereignty. If it were called that someone may want to charge Otter with sedition. Under B. Hussein Obama it has become increasingly difficult to do business in America, unless you are from a foreign nation. Idaho, under the stewardship of Governor Butch Otter, has opened the door for a Chinese invasion wherein the sovereignty of Idaho and America will be sodomized by all parties involved.
Project 60 takes advantage of a federal program that grants permanent residency to foreign nationals, in this case, Chinese. This program comes with special tax exemptions to the foreign firms moving here. American companies do not get the tax exemptions; So much for the Constitution and equal protection. Idaho is struggling financially and it is widely known that America is broke, so why tax breaks for the Chinese? China wants to limit its exposure to America’s debt. China needs to maintain its trade deficits, so it does not collapse like a house of cards. In order to accomplish this, China must unload currency and excess dollars. Buying Idaho is a good way to accomplish this. But, do not worry, China is looking at buying Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania as well. China will not allow its currency to become stronger, so it must eliminate some of America’s IOU’s. What better way to do this than buy America?
Top Idaho officials have been traveling to China and entertaining the Chinese here, in order to help facilitate this. Idaho is a resource rich state and the Chinese know it, as does Obama, who keeps snatching Idaho land. Otter, Obama and the attack on business in America paves the way for China to own us. A Chinese firm is building a fertilizer plant in American Falls Idaho. Ironic. China has bought fifty square miles of land south of Boise, thirty thousand acres of Idaho gone to foreign nationals. Governor Otter says this will help reinvigorate our American industrial base. Just how this will do it, since the plants will be staffed with foreign nationals is a question that remains unanswered.
Continue reading on Examiner.com Idaho to be first Chinese state - Boise Conservative | Examiner.com http://www.examiner.com/conservative-in-boise/idaho-to-be-first-chinese-state#ixzz1Rqk9mHBK
There are local and national security concerns to go with this immoral and illegal act. Governor Otter and his minions have agreed to give China ‘hassle free’ landing rights at Idaho’s main airport. There are two problems with this, one of which is the airport in question is used by the Idaho Air National Guard, and the other is Mountain Home Air Force Base is just miles away and the home of some of the Air Forces best kept flight secrets. The Bible says the borrower is the lenders slave. It appears that officials in Idaho and the Obama Administration have realized that and the term “Buy Idaho”, has become more than just a brand for Idaho goods. China took it literally.
Governor Otter, B. Hussein Obama, Congress and the Idaho Legislature have done nothing to protect the sovereignty of Idaho and America. What will the citizens do? What will you do? Freedom is something that is lost if not acted upon. When will China come for your state? What will you do?
Call Governer Otter: 208.334.2100

China Wants To Construct A 50 Square Mile Self-Sustaining City South Of Boise, Idaho
Thanks to the trillions of dollars that the Chinese have made flooding our shores with cheap products, China is now in a position of tremendous economic power. So what is China going to do with all of that money? One thing that they have decided to do is to buy up pieces of the United States and set up "special economic zones" inside our country from which they can continue to extend their economic domination. One of these "special economic zones" would be just south of Boise, Idaho and the Idaho government is eager to give it to them. China National Machinery Industry Corporation (Sinomach for short) plans to construct a "technology zone" south of Boise Airport which would ultimately be up to 50 square miles in size. The Chinese Communist Party is the majority owner of Sinomach, so the 10,000 to 30,000 acre "self-sustaining city" that is being planned would essentially belong to the Chinese government. The planned "self-sustaining city" in Idaho would include manufacturing facilities, warehouses, retail centers and large numbers of homes for Chinese workers. Basically it would be a slice of communist China dropped right into the middle of the United States.
According to the Idaho Statesman, the idea would be to build a self-contained city with all services included. It would be modeled after the "special economic zones" that currently exist in China.
Perhaps the most famous of these "special economic zones" is Shenzhen. Back in the 1970s, Shenzhen was just a very small fishing village. Today it is a sprawling metropolis of over 14 million people.
If the Chinese have their way, we will soon be seeing these "special economic zones" pop up all over the United States.
So exactly who is "Sinomach"?
The following description of the company comes directly from the website of Sinomach....
With approval of the State Council, China National Machinery Industry Corporation (SINOMACH) was established in January 1997. SINO-MACH is a large scale, state-owned enterprise group under the supervision of the State Assets Supervision and Administration Commission.
As you can see, Sinomach is basically an arm of the Chinese government.
The borrower is always the servant of the lender, and now China is buying up America.
The reality is that Sinomach is not looking only at Idaho. Sinomach is in discussions to develop "special economic zones" all over the United States.
Sinomach has recently dispatched delegations to Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania to explore the possibility of establishing "special economic zones" in those states.
Will such "self-contained communities" soon start appearing from coast to coast?
According to Dr. Jerome Corsi, the U.S. government has already set up 257 "foreign trade zones" across America. These "foreign trade zones" will apparently be given "special U.S. customs treatment" and will be used to promote global free trade....
"The FTZs tend to be located near airports, with easy access into the continental NAFTA and WTO multi-modal transportation systems being created to move free-trade goods cheaply, quickly and efficiently throughout the continent of North America."
So what do our politicians think about all of this?
Most of them are greatly in favor of it.
"Idaho’s the last state that should say we don’t want to do business with Asia," Idaho Lt. Gov. Brad Little said last year. "Asia’s where the money is."
So will all of this "foreign investment" really bring jobs back to the American people?
Perhaps a few, but the truth is that these "special economic zones" that the Chinese are setting up are designed to be self-contained communist Chinese communities. Some Americans will likely be employed in these areas, but not nearly as many as our politicians would have you to believe.
In addition, these "special economic zones" represent a massive national security threat. The communist Chinese could potentially be able to bring in and store massive amounts of military equipment virtually undetected.
In the days of the Cold War, we would have never dreamed of giving the Russians a 50 square mile city in the middle of Idaho.
But today we have become convinced that the communist Chinese want to be our great friends.
The following quote originally appeared in the Idaho Statesman, but has since apparently been taken down....
"The Chinese are looking for a beachhead in the United States," said Idaho Commerce Secretary Don Dietrich. "Idaho is ready to give them one."
If relations between the U.S. and China go south someday, we will deeply regret giving China so many open doors.
The truth is that you can never fully trust the communist Chinese. Their top military officers talk about a coming conflict with the United States all the time. China is extremely interested in North America. In fact, the Chinese and the Mexicans have even been holding talks on military cooperation.
But even if you don't consider the communist Chinese to be a military threat, you should be deeply concerned about the economic implications of what is happening.
Today, tens of millions of Americans are wondering why the economy is so bad.
Well, there are a lot of reasons, but the fact that we have sent China thousands of our factories, millions of our jobs and trillions of dollars of our national wealth is a major contributing factor.
If you do not know the truth about how badly the Chinese economy is wiping the floor with the Americen economy then you need to read this article: "40 Signs The Chinese Economy Is Beating The Living Daylights Out Of The U.S. Economy".
Beautiful new infrastructure is going up all over China today, and meanwhile many of our once great manufacturing cities are turning into rotted-out war zones.
China would not be what they are today if we had insisted that they abandon the communist system and respect basic human rights before we ever opened up trade with them.
But that did not happen. Instead we enthusiastically welcomed China into the WTO and we let the predatory Chinese system run wild.
In 2010, China had a "current account balance" of over 272 billion dollars, which was the largest in the world.
In 2010, the United States had a "current account balance" of negative 561 billion dollars. According to the CIA world factbook, that put us in last place in the entire world. In fact, our negative current account balance was more than 9 times larger than anyone else in the world. If you go check out this chart it will give you a really good idea of how nightmarish our trade situation has become.
The world is changing and nothing is ever going to be the same again.
Just ask the residents of Boise, Idaho - they are about to have a 50 square mile self-contained communist Chinese city plopped right into their backyard.

Praise the Lord!
"Ants are creatures of little strength, yet they store up their food in the summer" (Proverbs 30:25, NIV).
Sometimes the seemingly simple things in life can teach us some of the most important lessons. Take ants, for example. Even though their "brain" (central ganglion or nerve) is less than one-tenth the size of a pinhead, ants live in highly organized social colonies. Some collect food, others build the nest and keep it clean, and some look after the queen ants. Nurse ants clean and feed the larvae. Soldier ants guard and protect the food-collecting ants.

In a widely anticipated speech at the State Department today, President Barack Obama laid out a sweeping vision for U.S. policy in the Middle East and North Africa. Obama stressed a renewed U.S. support for democracy and human rights, and drew heavily on the "Arab spring" popular rebellions of the past six month, which have challenged and in some cases upended, seemingly stable authoritarian regimes in the Arab world. At the same time, Obama defied expectations he would only briefly discuss the stalemated Israeli-Palestinian peace process, laying out a more detailed U.S. vision for how the Israelis and Palestinians should resolve their dispute over borders for a future two state solution, based on pre-1967 war lines with agreed swaps.
The president touched on the speech's two principal themes at the beginning and end of his remarks. "It will be the policy of the United States to support democracy and civil society in the region," Obama said in recognition of the Arab spring's legacy. And toward the end of the hour-long address, he cautioned that "the dream of a Jewish and democratic state cannot be fulfilled with permanent occupation."
In a statement released after the remarks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took issue with key elements of the president's plan. While thanking Obama for his "commitment to peace," Netanyahu—who meets with Obama at the White House Friday— said Israel would not "withdraw to the 1967 lines which are both indefensible and which would leave major Israeli population centers in Judea and Samaria [the West Bank] beyond those lines."
Netanyahu asked Obama to reassert a promise Israel received in a 2004 letter from President George W. Bush that three major Jewish settlement blocs in the West Bank would become part of Israel under the establishment of a Palestinian state.

In Obama's view, the United States needs to join forces with global community to work through a two-state framework for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement. "What America and the international community can do is state frankly what everyone knows: a lasting peace will involve two states for two peoples," he continued. "Israel as a Jewish state and the homeland for the Jewish people, and the state of Palestine as the homeland for the Palestinian people; each state enjoying self-determination, mutual recognition, and peace.
"The United States believes that negotiations should result in two states, with permanent Palestinian borders with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, and permanent Israeli borders with Palestine," Obama said, laying out the U.S. position. "We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states. The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves, and reach their potential, in a sovereign and contiguous state."
Mideast experts called it a "moment of truth" and expressed relief that Obama chose to outline a U.S. vision for resolving the conflict at this time.
"I think the president intuitively understood that if he did not offer a legitimate way forward toward resolving the Israeli Palestinian conflict, that this broader vision for how America would engage with the citizens of the Middle East and North Africa would seem hollow," said former Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fl.), now president of the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace and a close Obama administration ally on the peace process.
"By stating for the first time as an American president the American position that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will be resolved based on '67 lines with agreed upon territorial swaps, Israeli prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian president Abbas now have decisions to make," Wexler continued. "And the decisions that they must make are not to be juxtaposed with the other sides' position, but with America's position. And this is a moment of truth."
"For the Israelis and Palestinian publics ... President Obama has offered the way forward," Wexler continued.
Obama's laying out the U.S. vision that Israel and Palestine should negotiate borders on the '67 borders with agreed swaps is "a huge advance," said Stephen P. Cohen, a former Middle East consultant to the National Intelligence Council.
Obama's speech also emphasized U.S. political and economic support for democratic change and human rights in the region, and a broader compass for America's ties to the people of the Arab world beyond narrowly defined U.S. interests of fighting terrorism, securing energy supplies and ensuring stability.
"Our support for these peoples is not of secondary interest: it is a top priority that must be translated into concrete actions," Obama said. The White House proposed over two billion dollars in foreign investment incentives and debt relief for Egypt among other measures to try to lend economic support to fledgling democracies in the region.
Obama's speech heralded "the first opportunity for a serious American Middle East policy that we have had since the end of World War II," Cohen continued. "Now I must tell you, it is going to be not easy to implement. But he has spoken clearly about some of the steps can take now to implement which include not only verbal support of these groups but also to work hard on economic development of Egypt."
