Of the many themes that will go down in history for the year 2016, perhaps one of the most significant will be the pivot of nations away from the U.S. sphere of influence, and their move over to America's perceived adversaries. Yet even this is just a microcosm of the great frequency change taking place that seems to even go beyond the 'Shmitah' phenomenon, and is similar in scope to changes incurred globally during the second decade of century 100, 200, and even 1600 years before.
Late on Friday in the U.S., which was October 1 for many parts of the world, the Chinese RMB currency was officially placed into the IMF's Special Drawing Rights basket. And despite the fact that China has been internationalizing the Yuan at an ever accelerating rate since 2013, this move into the SDR will be just the first step into much greater changes according to Beijing.
On Sept. 21, the internationalization of the Yuan currency just took a big leap as the Federal Reserve Board confirmed an agreement with the Bank of China to begin operations of a new RMB clearing house in the United States.
The first music video ever shown by MTV back in 1981 was of course, Video killed the Radio Star, and it was a microcosm of how everything in respect to consumer demands and technology changes or replaces the old with the new over time in nearly every industry.
Almost 100 years after President Calvin Coolidge declared, 'the business of America is business', the Obama administration has established a new label for the empire which says, 'the business of America is the stifling of business'.

After a subsidiary of the Chinese state purchased the J.P. Morgan HQ building directly across and connected to the New York Federal Reserve a few years ago, it was rumored that China not only held a large stake in the bank itself, but are also now a partial shareholder with ties directly to America's central bank.
The above is the full quote that has been watered down by time to mean, America would never fall from an outside influence, but by the actions of the men and government within. And 160 or so odd years later, that apocalyptic prediction appears to be coming to pass.
America was at its greatest when it remained isolationist in foreign policy, but entirely open in supporting free trade around the world. And it was only after World War II when the government was taken over by globalist ideologues bent on becoming the sole power over the earth that its doom would one day be assured.
While Barack Obama tours Saudi Arabia, Britain, and Germany in an attempt to get them to sign on to the secret trade pact known as the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), two different nations are looking to join Russia with open arms for a new day of economic prosperity.
