Between Now and Disaster – Part 1 – The Buildup of ISIS

In my series last week, I talked about why and how America might be destroyed, but I mentioned very little about the events leading up to such a cataclysm. This week would be a good time to cover that.

(Click HERE for Part 2)

There are a fairly common series of moves that governments make before taking their countries to war. We saw this in World War I as European countries jockeyed for position to pick up the pieces of a failing Ottoman Empire. We also saw it in World War II as Japan sought to increase hegemony in the Pacific, and as Germany tried for a Third Reich. And, now we get to see it yet again as the US seeks to defend the Petrodollar System, and as Russia tries to avoid being crushed by imperial America.

Between Now and Disaster – Part 1 – The Buildup of ISIS

In my petrodollar series that I called, Orders from Riyadh, I examined the petrodollar foundations of the American Empire. I, myself, had never really understood all of the implications of the Petrodollar System before last month. It was an eye-opening experience for myself, and I’m getting just a little tired of having my eyes opened like that.

It makes me wonder about what else I’ve been missing. We’ll see. You can bet that you’ll hear about it.

(You should feel sorry for my poor wife who has to put up with
the antics of her shocked and outraged husband
every time he stumbles across something awful and outrageous.

So, we should ask ourselves what imperial America’s next moves will be. And, I think that we have a hint about what the US will do, by what she has done recently.

America Fanning The Flames Of War

One thing that the United States did just a few days ago was this:

Swap deal for Snowden? Russian MP’s son kidnapped by US security service

YouTube shortlink:

THAT was shocking, and it makes me sick. I have no idea whether the kid was guilty or not, and I’m not sure that it really matters. The point is that this is gasoline on the flames of war. And, I am still shocked at how blatant this is.

Was there even a warrant out for his arrest?


So, expect to see more of that as the US seeks to build this bonfire higher.

Ukraine And ISIS

But, there are a couple of other things that have happened that lead the way towards the future:

  • Ukraine
  • ISIS

You AND my poor wife have already heard me jump up and down in outrage over what the US is doing in Ukraine. What you haven’t heard me talk about much is ISIS, also known either as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). Of course, they’ve shortened all of that to IS – the Islamic State.

There are many organizations like ISIS throughout the Middle East, and I lived ‘next door’ to some for years when I lived in Israel. ISIS is nothing new.

So, why is ISIS so successful, when the others haven’t been?

Money. Lots and LOTS of MONEY.

Follow The Money

Anyone who has EVER studied counter-terrorism knows that terrorist organizations require massive amounts of money to succeed in their attempts to terrorize the world. Bases of operations, manpower, security and weapons require a lot more money than you think. And, I have been fascinated for years by the game of terrorism that so many countries play. And, you might be surprised at who has been playing these games.

We all know about Russia and her support for the PLO and the IRA. We know about UK support for ‘protestant’ terrorists in Northern Ireland. We know about French support for terrorism in Africa. And, we know about American support for terrorism in South and Central America – and Africa, too. But, all of that is just the tip of the iceberg.

The CIA Creates ISIS

The CIA, along with Turkish and Saudi intelligence agencies, has been deeply involved in supporting the uprising in Syria. They’ve been training, funding and arming a bunch of different groups, and they’ve gone as far as to release dangerous al-Qaeda leaders from jail – so that they could take over some of the ragtag outfits that were desperate for good leadership.

One of those people released from jail was Ibrahim Awwad Ibrahim Ali al-Badri al-Samarrai, also known as ‘Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi‘, and is the head of ISIS. When he was released by the US in 2009, he turned to Army Col. Kenneth King, and said:

I’ll see you guys in New York.


There is a certain brutal logic to what the CIA is doing. By funding and arming all these different terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq, eventually one group will survive and thrive. Think of it as a kind of ‘natural selection’. Only the brutally smart and efficient will survive to reach the top.

What The CIA Wants

Well, it looks like the CIA and the Saudis have the organization that they’ve been looking for, and they’ve been pouring more and more money into ISIS as they’ve become more successful. And, ISIS is doing EXACTLY what the CIA wants.

But, what DOES the CIA want?

Well, there are two things:

Another Bogeyman – They need another bogeyman to scare citizens around the world into giving up their rights for more security. Osama Bin Laden is dead and this al-Baghdadi guy would make a great replacement.

Threat to Saudi Arabia and OPEC – The Saudis and the Persian Gulf Arabs have been flirting with the idea of tearing up the Petrodollar System and selling oil in other currencies. The ISIS threat will help keep them from doing that.

Originally, I hesitated to treat ISIS seriously because we couldn’t be sure that ISIS had a smart enough leadership to consolidate their gains. It now appears that they really HAVE been able to set up a political infrastructure and gather local support in the areas that they control.

That is the situation now, with ISIS. What they do with ISIS in the future will be the important part.

We’ll talk about THAT tomorrow.

Are you ready for this?

  1. Hi John,

    If you read: G. Edward Griffin’s “The Creature from Jekyll Island”, you will understand that the control of currency is the root of all the madness in the world. The world’s banking families understand that if they control the world’s money mechanism, they will control the world, which leads to…

    Rev 13:16 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:
    Rev 13:17 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.

    1Ti 6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
    1Ti 6:8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
    1Ti 6:9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
    1Ti 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

    • Hi Michael Haller,

      Very, very true.

      Of course, what you are talking about is the ‘end game’. Each of the groups that we call The Elites… Each of these groups wants to be THE ONE to control this monetary system that you refer to.

      This lack of unity is probably one of the few things that has kept us from being enslaved long before now.

      Thank you, Michael. Good points.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  2. I am a little suspicious of your constant quoting of RT and taking for granted all they say is true. They too engage in much lying and I think we need to be very careful in accepting all the charges they make as automatically true.
    Yes, I too believe the CIA engages in constant lying, but because they obviously do, does not mean the Russians do not.
    Experience has shown us almost ALL public statements by both powers are usually untrue.
    I continue to believe the Club of Rome (an international conspiracy, USA and Russia included) is hard at work to create all sorts of tensions and fears worldwide in order to justify a greater buildup of a police state, worldwide.
    We should treat Russian propaganda with just as much skepticism as we do CIA (American) propaganda.
    The ultimate aim is world government in which both Russia and the USA will share great authority. We have been in bed with the communists since the Bolshevik revolution in 1917 when American banksters financed the ouster of the White Russian government.

    • Hi Willard Aztec,

      I’m sorry that you feel this way. But, if you want to get a Russian view of events you have to get Russians to tell you – which was the point of the two RT videos that I’ve used in the past two weeks.

      I probably only use two videos from RT a month – if at all. So, I’m not sure what the problem is.

      Please understand that I only post videos that corroborate information that I have verified to be correct. I’m pretty careful about my sources – which is why I rarely post anything from ABCCBSNBCNPRCIA.

      Thank you, Willard. ALWAYS be careful of the information you get – even if it is from me.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  3. IF PUTIN doesn’t nuke every city on the east coast,and drop an extra four or five on DC,and new york,I will be sadly disappointed in him,THE AMERICAN people have been murdering people all over the planet for two hundred years and NEVER been brought to justice for it,and its way beyond time,ANYTHING he does to america is less then deserved..THEIR NOTHING but a pack of YELLOW COWARDS anyway..WHO ONLY PREY ON CHILDREN and people who can’t fight back………………..

  4. sorry to disagree…. al-Baghdadi, the new Caliph of the IS Caliphate is not a CIA paid stooge…
    sure the developing ISIS-ISIL-IS may have poached $$ and material from the USA flood-of-monies that grew the Syrian Free Army that fought against the Assad regime forces

    but the inspired Caliphate, turned away from being a war-puppet for the USA in the Syria Theatre-of-War and decided to overturn the Iraq puppet gov’t of Shia oppressors by taking Fallujah in Jan 2014, for starters,

    the ISIS=Caliphate Blitzkreig ensued in April-May… and the Caliphate was Declared on June 29th (Sunday) by al-Baghdadi…
    but he as so-far deferred to engage in the conquest of Baghdad..(I wonder why)

    this guy has a lot of expansion/growth coming to the Caliphate —which might oust the Maliki gov’t in the near future—which would legitimize the ISIS combative take-over of Iraq into a Caliphate (minus Kurdistan no doubt)

    • Hi StUdio Musi,

      Of course al-Baghdadi is CIA paid.

      However, I did not say that he was a stooge. Please remember that the CIA funds those who would do what they want, naturally. Stooges aren’t necessary – in fact, maybe even counterproductive.

      Will he go after Baghdad?

      We will see.

      Thank you, SM.

  5. Hello there John!

    When you get the opportunity, please read the short article that I have linked to below and give us your thoughts concerning this article.

    The article is titled: — “Finding Biblical Truth: The Bible vs. the Newspaper”.

    Okay, directly below is the link to this article:



    • Hi Steve,

      That article was painful to read. You have bought the lie of the pretribulation rapture, and now you are telling people to IGNORE what is going on around them.

      I have repeatedly asked someone to refute this article, but no one has come forward to do so:

      I challenge you to refute just the three proofs that I have provided there. No one else has.

      Luke 21:36 called us to watch, and that meant looking looking at events and comparing them to what the Bible told us to expect. Do you dare to go against what our Lord and Savior told us to do?

      If I do not hear from you, Steve, I will assume that you cannot disprove my article, here:

      And, I will also assume that you have chosen to serve a lie, and not the truth – and to continue teaching that lie.

      There is a grave judgment reserved for those who do such things. So, prove me wrong, Steve – or, turn from this evil path.

      Choose well, Steve.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
