Many are the signs pointing to the imminent return of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach and the beginning of the Tribulation period.  In Part Three of the Burgeoning Signs Series, we examine the possible demise of the United States, the establishment of global surveillance measures, and the replacement of cash and currency by digital money.

The Next Detainees
In January 2009, the National Emergency Centers Act (HR 645) authorized the Department of Homeland Security to build no fewer than six detention centers.   The detention centers could be used as concentration camps for political dissidents, such as occurred in Nazi Germany.

Children all over the United States are being taken out of their classrooms, put on buses and sent to “alternate locations” during terror drills.  Since 9/11 and the Columbine school shootings, school emergency drills have become much more realistic and intense.  The children are rapidly herded onto buses and must surrender their cell phones.  Our schools are more and more closely resembling detention camps, and the children that are suffering because of it.

Administrative Power Grabs And The Fear of Martial Law
On March 16, 2012, President Obama signed a new Executive Order allowing for control over all US resources, which expands upon a prior order issued in 1950 for Disaster Preparedness.  It now gives the office of the President complete control over all the resources in the United States, not only during wars and national emergencies, but also during peacetime.

The Hard Left may use the Trayvon Martin incident to organize a street army for this summer which will link up with the Occupy movement and other elements.  If they get sufficient numbers, they may try to destabilize the government and overthrow it.  If it gets bad enough, Obama could call for marshal law and suspend the elections.

National Security Threatened
In the future, when wages for military recruits will be substantially reduced by large deductions for medical coverage, recruits will most likely prefer to apply for civil service positions where medical coverage is provided at no cost.  This may eventually destabilize the all-volunteer military force and reduce its numbers, requiring additional security forces.  This would fulfill Obama’s July 2, 2008campaign promise that: “We cannot continue to rely only on our military. … We’ve got to have a civilian Security Force just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Barack Obama plans to neuter America by unilaterally dismantling most of the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal, as we lead the way to “a world without nuclear weapons”.  However, if the United States did not have nuclear weapons, anyone with just a handful of nukes could easily threaten our national security, as it would no longer be suicidal to attack us.  We just have to wait until after the election for him to be more able to do so and he has asked Russia and other countries to give him some space until that time!

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has announced that the Obama Administration will be working closely with the United Nations to pass its Small Arms Treaty.  The treaty will likely be packaged as legislation to assist in the fight against terrorism, insurgency, and international crime syndicates, but is really nothing more than a massive, global gun control scheme that would force law-abiding citizens to greater bureaucratic red tape just to legally own a gun, and would ultimately lead to the confiscation of firearms owned by private citizens.

Total Information Awareness:
In 2005, the Congress passed the Real ID Act, which mandated nationwide standards for a drivers’ license database, which was seen as a method that would have enabled the government to track citizens, jeopardizing the privacy rights of Americans.  The plan, although made into law, was never implemented, as about half of the states adopted resolutions or other prohibitions on the federal plan, and fifteen states adopted laws barring its implementation.

On March 23, 2012, sweeping new surveillance measures were approved in the US when restrictions on how counterterrorism analysts may retrieve, store and search information about Americans were relaxed.  Data may now be stored on Americans up to five years, instead of just 180 days, even when there is no suspicion that they are tied to terrorism, intelligence officials said. information about

Under construction, Canada’s new $880 million electronic spy headquarters in Ottawa, will spy on Americans and the whole world.  One may now assume that all of one’s communications are being monitored and one lives in a disguised police state already.

The Department of Defense is hoping to develop and bring online systems that will be able to understand and interpret the growing amount of data being gathered by military sensors.  The system will combine sensing, perception, and the ability to make decisions to create a truly autonomous system that will be agile enough to both make decisions by itself, and yet also know when to call upon a human.

The National Security Agency is building a new, heavily fortified, Data Center in Bluffdale, Utah as part of a secret NSA surveillance program codenamed “Stellar Wind”. The $2 billion center should be up and running no later than September 2013. Its purpose is to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast amounts of the world’s communications including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital transactions.  The NSA, of course, firmly denies that any warrant-less eavesdropping or word parsing is taking place.

A silent communications system, called “Silent Sound Spread Spectrum (SSSS),” was originally developed for military in 1992. In layman’s terms, this device, simply allows implantation of specific thoughts, emotions and even prescribed physical actions into unsuspecting human beings.  This system would only show up as static on analog TV, but with HDTV, it becomes undetectable. The conversion to HDTV has been orchestrated to allow for the potential puppeting of mankind; to allow government to dictate every thought, emotion, and movement of its people; to allow all to become electronic toys remotely controllable for political and commercial purposes.

Lastly, I-Pads, cell phones, and all internet connected items can already spy on the user.  One technology is able to analyze the background noise during phone calls and serve up ads for you based on the environmental conditions.  In addition to this, it also analyzes the backgrounds of photos and videos you’ve taken. These household spy devices “change our notions of secrecy” and prompt a rethink of “our notions of identity and secrecy”, says General Petraeus.

The Demise of the US Dollar
For generations we have been making change by taking bills and coins out of our wallets to pay for purchases.  However, a growing technology is changing how we pay for items.  Today we pay primarily by credit card, direct payments from one bank account to another, or by check.  Ninety-five percent of the transactions in America no longer have anything to do with physical pieces of paper or coins.  Pay phones, parking meters, even taxis no longer accept cash, all proof that the days of cash may be numbered.  The day of Digital Cash has been birthed.

By March 2012 as many as twenty-seven percent of all student loans were at least thirty days delinquent.  And who guarantees these loans?  Why, the American taxpayer, of course. This debt bubble could burst just as easily, quickly, and as devastatingly as the housing bubble of 2008.  When the student loan bubble pops it will bring another $1 trillion in unintended consequences on the shoulders of the US taxpayer, who once again will be left footing the bill.
