The CFR issues a STARK warning: ~~COLLAPSE OF EMPIRE IMMINENT~~
A few months ago I stumbled on this strange post that was on the CFR's (Council on Foreign Relations) own website. It appears to be a sinister message, from the elite, to the elite. It was directing the 'illuminated' to review the 200 year old series of paintings entitled "Course of Empire". There was also text--the full text is only available to direct CFR members--but we got it.

Summary:
Imperial collapse may come much more suddenly than many historians imagine. A combination of fiscal deficits and military overstretch suggests that the United States may be the next empire on the precipice.
 Quoting: CFR

Webpage: [link to www.foreignaffairs.com]

Inspiration:
A direct source of literary inspiration for The Course of Empire is Byron's Childe Harold's Pilgramage (1812-18). Cole quoted this verse, from Canto IV, in his newspaper advertisements for the series:
There is the moral of all human tales;
'Tis but the same rehearsal of the past.
First freedom and then Glory - when that fails,
Wealth, vice, corruption - barbarism at last.
And History, with all her volumes vast,
Hath but one page.
 Quoting: Byron Childe

Now lets take a look at these 200 year old paintings....
:savage2:

:pastoral2:

:consummation2:

destruction2

:desolation2:



As if that wasn't clear enough... here is the message along with it:

February 26, 2010 "Foreign Affairs" - March/April 2010 Edition -- There is no better illustration of the life cycle of a great power than The Course of Empire, a series of five paintings by Thomas Cole that hang in the New-York Historical Society. Cole was a founder of the Hudson River School and one of the pioneers of nineteenth-century American landscape painting; in The Course of Empire, he beautifully captured a theory of imperial rise and fall to which most people remain in thrall to this day.

Each of the five imagined scenes depicts the mouth of a great river beneath a rocky outcrop. In the first, The Savage State, a lush wilderness is populated by a handful of hunter-gatherers eking out a primitive existence at the break of a stormy dawn. The second picture, The Arcadian or Pastoral State, is of an agrarian idyll: the inhabitants have cleared the trees, planted fields, and built an elegant Greek temple. The third and largest of the paintings is The Consummation of Empire. Now, the landscape is covered by a magnificent marble entrepôt, and the contented farmer-philosophers of the previous tableau have been replaced by a throng of opulently clad merchants, proconsuls, and citizen-consumers. It is midday in the life cycle. Then comes Destruction. The city is ablaze, its citizens fleeing an invading horde that rapes and pillages beneath a brooding evening sky. Finally, the moon rises over the fifth painting, Desolation. There is not a living soul to be seen, only a few decaying columns and colonnades overgrown by briars and ivy.
Conceived in the mid-1830s, Cole's great pentaptych has a clear message: all empires, no matter how magnificent, are condemned to decline and fall. The implicit suggestion was that the young American republic of Cole's age would be better served by sticking to its bucolic first principles and resisting the imperial temptations of commerce, conquest, and colonization.
 Quoting: Empires on the Edge of Chaos - Niall Ferguson - Writer for CFR


I found a remake of the above plates, lets see if they shine even more light on this.... as if that's possible...

 Quoting: Solon


Yes, they are waiting... They don't want to fabricate the collapse to where it will be completely obvious that it's an inside job... they are waiting for the right "season".

Severe natural disaster and/or war. Then they can blame the collapse on outside forces rather than inside forces.

Draw near, O nations, to hear; and listen, O peoples! Let the earth and all it contains hear, and the world and all that springs from it.

For the LORD'S indignation is against all the nations, And His wrath against all their armies; He has utterly destroyed them, He has given them over to slaughter.

So their slain will be thrown out, And their corpses will give off their stench, And the mountains will be drenched with their blood.

And all the host of heaven will wear away, And the sky will be rolled up like a scroll; All their hosts will also wither away As a leaf withers from the vine, Or as {one} withers from the fig tree.

For My sword is satiated in heaven, Behold it shall descend for judgment upon Edom And upon the people whom I have devoted to destruction.

The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, It is sated with fat, with the blood of lambs and goats, With the fat of the kidneys of rams. For the LORD has a sacrifice in Bozrah And a great slaughter in the land of Edom.

Wild oxen will also fall with them And young bulls with strong ones; Thus their land will be soaked with blood, And their dust become greasy with fat.

For the LORD has a day of vengeance, A year of recompense for the cause of Zion.

Its streams will be turned into pitch, And its loose earth into brimstone, And its land will become burning pitch.

It will not be quenched night or day; Its smoke will go up forever. From generation to generation it will be desolate; None will pass through it forever and ever.

But pelican and hedgehog will possess it, And owl and raven will dwell in it; And He will stretch over it the line of desolation And the plumb line of emptiness.

Its nobles--there is no one there whom they may proclaim king-- And all its princes will be nothing.

Thorns will come up in its fortified towers, Nettles and thistles in its fortified cities; It will also be a haunt of jackals and an abode of ostriches.

The desert creatures will meet with the wolves, The hairy goat also will cry to its kind; Yes, the night monster will settle there And will find herself a resting place.

The tree snake will make its nest and lay eggs there, And it will hatch and gather them under its protection. Yes, the hawks will be gathered there, Every one with its kind.

Is 34:1-15

The magnetic Pole Reversal by the Mother is going to collapse it, no inside job necessary, this is how nature works. it is global so the collapse by nature will be global. Otherwise empire always does collapse and so far on earth, the light has never manifested out of the collapse. this time, by divine decree it will. But the collapse has to happen first.
