The Anglo-American Special Relationship

//The Anglo-American Special Relationship

My question is regarding a verse in the book of Revelation. It is Revelation 17:10: How is it that the seventh king is said to “remain a little while,” yet the Anglo-American world power has been around for a while, hasn’t it? Or was there an interruption between the 6th and 7th kings domination (Rome being the 6th “the one who is”) in other words they didn’t rule consecutively? I kindly appreciate your words on the matter.

Here is the verse in context, which reads as follows: “This calls for a mind that has wisdom: The seven heads mean seven mountains, where the woman sits on top. And there are seven kings: Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet arrived; but when he does arrive, he must remain a short while. And the wild beast that was but is not, it is also an eighth king, but it springs from the seven, and it goes off into destruction.”

The over-all context of this portion of Revelation has to do with the “woman” who “sits on top” of the seven mountains. Those seven mountains represent seven empires that have existed in an unbroken succession from before the time of Christ — going back to Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia and Greece. Those were the five that had already fallen by the first century. The king that the angel spoke of in the present tense when he said “one is,” was, as you know, the Roman Empire.

But before proceeding, we must first come to understand (“this calls for a mind that has wisdom”) that empires are not necessarily a single nation. In fact, the nature of empires is that they are supranational — ruling over individual nations and peoples.

For example, the Babylonian Empire ruled over many national groups. That is evident from the account that relates the setting up of the golden image on the plains of Dura, which states: “So when all the peoples heard the sound of the horn, pipe, zither, triangular harp, stringed instrument, and all the other musical instruments, all the peoples, nations, and language groups fell down and worshipped the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.”

As regards Rome, historians refer to the fall of the Roman Empire as taking place during the 5th century. (The Eastern Empire in Byzantium, now Constantinople, continued to rule for many centuries)

But that leaves a considerable gap of approximately 1,400 years until the British Empire became the dominate world power. However, empires have a way of morphing into other forms, as the British Empire has done over the course of its existence. So too, the Roman Empire.

Although the emperor of Rome was unseated in 475 CE., the popes of Rome retained power and perpetuated the system. And that meant the feudal system. That is evident from the fact that in the year 800 Pope Leo III crowned the Frankish King, Charlemagne, Emperor of the new Holy Roman Empire. So, it appears that the woman remained sitting on top even after Rome was sacked. And it was the Holy Roman Empire empire that ruled Western Europe until Napoleon wrecked Europe in the beginning of the 19th century, which paved the way for the ascendency of the British Empire. It ought to be noted that King Henry VIII’s break with the Catholic Church was a turning point from which the English gradually began to accumulate power and become dominate.

At any rate, although the United States was eventually dragged into the First World War on the side of Britain and France, the Anglo-American alliance really did not come into existence until the Second World War. That is when the so-called Special Relationship was formed. Most likely from Jehovah’s standpoint that is when the 7th king arrived on the scene. So, in that sense it has only been “a little while,” especially in comparison to the centuries-long reigns of previous empires.

Of note, the seventh chapter of Daniel only portrays a single beast in succession from Greece — the unusually strong beast with iron teeth and 10 horns, with an 11th horn that comes up in the end — no doubt the 8th king. Whereas, Revelation reveals a seventh and eighth king. (Daniel does not include the first two, Egypt and Assyria.) That reflects the fact that the British system is merely a form of the original Roman Empire. 

As regards the transformation of the British Empire, textbook versions of history regard the British Empire as a relic of the past. That is because they only consider the formal, colonial empire. But the empire of The City of London (PDF) has always existed outside the boundaries of nations – including the United Kingdom.

bush-blairGoing back to the establishment of the Federal Reserve in 1913, which is a privately owned central bank and only ostensibly part of the US Federal government, the financier oligarchy associated with the British Empire of yesteryear was able to gain control of the US monetary system.

Particularly since the gold standard was abolished in 1973 the City of London has used money to acquire power over virtually all the nations, since the value of the currency of sovereign nations is actually controlled by speculators. The City of London is the hub of the three-trillion dollar per day global financial turnover. (Wall Street is merely an extension of the City of London)

Of particular importance, since the beginning of 2015 the BRICS had confidently announced they were moving to set up a few monetary system, and an Asian infrastructure bank to rival the Anglo-American IMF and World Bank. Since then, though, Russia has come under attack. China has experienced two massive industrial explosions and its stock market has been hit with massive short-selling. South Africa and Brazil (Especially Brazil) — the “S” and the “B” of the BRICS acronym — have had their currencies come under attack. Is India next?

    If in the depiction of the statue in Daniel has legs made of iron and feet of iron and clay, wouldn’t it be that when the stone is hurled at the feet it is still the remnants of the Roman Empire that the stone is being thrown at?

    • Yes, as I said, the British Empire is the inheritor of the Roman system. The iron represents the empire. The clay represents the republic, the people, since man was made from the clay. Together the iron and the clay symbolize the Anglo-American duo – a fusion of the empire and democratic republicanism.

      The image itself represents the 8th king to come, which stands upon the Anglo-American feet of iron and clay.

        If the image represents the 8th King, what or who are the Kings that are represented by the (10) toes and /or the 10 horns of the beast? I know that some things must exist in some form before they actually become blatantly obvious, but doesn’t the two headed (Anglo/US) beast turn up or appear after the other beast (7 headed) has been made defunct and then sort of restored?
        Robert, if the chest and arms of the Nebuchadnezzar dream represent Persia and the Medes, the arms representing the duo, shouldn’t the legs represent a dual power system all of the way from not only Rome but Greece as it was the founder of Rome through one of the generals. The King of the North and South also started according to Daniel with he Greeks and therefore the Greeks were represented in the image singular abdomen and then moving to the thighs as the King of the North/South started, the two would then continue on all of the way until the end shifting power between them along the way?

        If the USA represents the king of the south and is destined to fall as you say or brought down as a tree by the lords of London then why would it be revived unless the london oligarchy wants to control it to the point of morphing it into the 8th king? it seems unlikely that America will actually hand over its power due to the fact that America has been the spearhead of all the world’s major inventions and medical progression ,since capitalism is what drives the world and America is the major foremost capitalist country it would seem unimaginable for America especially the military to take the back seat to any other country, wouldn’t it be more that America is in actuality the king of the north on earth since its teeth and tyranical disposition has been in the forefront for the last 100 years? Perhaps America as we know it will change such as the Republic policy. It would be major stretch to say that any other country comes out on top other than America when the system goes down and the 8th king rises out of the ashes of the former American Way of life.perhaps London is Satan’s financial throne,but I think the US military is the soon to be Satans world wide tyrant. I just cannot imagine any other people but the Anglo American race pulling the levers behind the scenes if the UN is actually the 8th king.after all the UN Headquarters is right in our own backyard the good old USA!

          I have never stated that the US will be conquered militarily. It is the republic that is destined to be destroyed. Already the US military is being deployed against its own citizens. That is apparent from the Jade Helm operation and the ongoing militarization of local police to circumvent Posse Comitatus Act that forbids a standing army on US soil.

    I have read that CFR, Council of Foreign Relations established in 1921 made a great impact in establishing this Special Anglo -American relationship. I read something on their website about it. And it mentions that in the beginning all members were from New York.
    So could it be that CFR is the brain of the Anglo-American relationship?

    • The CFR is the American counterpart to the British Royal Institute of International Affairs, also known as Chatam House. Those sister institutions were established for the purpose of bringing America under the influence of British imperialism. It was a big set back for the one-worlders when the US senate refused to join the League of Nations. So, the CFR’S first mission was to prepare independent minded nationalists to accept the UN 25 years later.

      Although there are more exclusive and secretive organizations, like the Bilderberg Group, and British freemasonry, the CFR recruits influentials in the field of politics, journalism, media, education and so forth, for the purpose of reshaping public opinion and policy in various fields.

      I wrote about the conspiracy to bring about a new world order in the chapter on the King of the North.

    Especially fascinating is the multi-national aspect of this prophetic drama. I can totally see something similar being demanded of Jehovah’s people from the 8th King…

    Dan 3:4 The herald loudly proclaimed: “You are commanded, O peoples, nations, and language groups, 5 that when you hear the sound of the horn, pipe, zither, triangular harp, stringed instrument, bagpipe, and all the other musical instruments, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar has set up. 6 Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into the burning fiery furnace.” 7 So when all the peoples heard the sound of the horn, pipe, zither, triangular harp, stringed instrument, and all the other musical instruments, all the peoples, nations, and language groups fell down and worshipped the image of gold that King Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar had set up.”
