October 30, 2014 51 countries declare banking secrecy ‘obsolete’, sign pact in Berlin Finance ministers from over 51 countries signed an agreement in a step closer to ending the dark financial underworld of tax-evasion and money-laundering. Another 30 countries pledged to join by 2018. The deal is called the Multilateral Competent Authority Agreement and will look to build a collective exchange of bank accounts, taxes, assets, and income held outside local tax jurisdictions. The two-day summit was organized by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes. It was hosted by German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble and held in Berlin. "Banking secrecy, in its old form, is obsolete," German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said in an interview in Bild on Wednesday. The practice is "no longer appropriate at a time when people can transfer their money all over the world at the press of a button via the internet," said Schaeuble. Germany is a staunch opponent of Bank secrecy by geography. On its southern border lie historically secretive Austria and Switzerland, and on the western frontier is Luxembourg, also known for its tight-lipped financial institutions. Members like the Cayman Islands, the Virgin Islands and Liechtenstein – all notorious for being tax havens, signed the agreements. Asset hideouts like Austria, Switzerland, and the Bahamas didn’t sign the agreement itself, but promised to join the initiative by 2018. The new American anti-secrecy measure, FATCA, added a sense of urgency to the debate. FATCA legislation, signed into law in 2010 and enacted on July 1, 2014, requires overseas financial institutions to identify their American customers to the IRS. The law applies to any account with more than $50,000. source

Tonight is the most important night on the Satanic calendar.
Thousands of men, women and children will be murdered tonight, and the vile Luciferians will have made progress in their attempt to defile God’s creation.
Of course, the Luciferians have been doing this for thousands of years, so you might wonder why we should be making a fuss over all this.
Well, the problem is that these Satanists are being given help by those who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ. Just as we look for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the Luciferians are looking for the coming of their Antichrist. *CLICK HERE FOR FULL ARTICLE

China, Japan set to resume maritime ties After indicating a possible meet between the top leadership of the two Asian giants, China and Japan’s defense agencies are moving forward with expert consultation needed to resume maritime liaisons, said a Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman on Thursday. The two countries restarted high-level consultation on maritime affairs last month. Replying to a query on recent US-Japan military drills, Chinese Ministry spokesman, Yang Yujun, told a monthly press briefing that Beijing hoped military cooperation could be conducive to regional peace and stability, instead of the other way round. In a meeting last month in Qingdao, in eastern China, officials from both countries exchanged views on East China Sea dispute and maritime cooperation. They agreed, in principle, to resume bilateral maritime liaisons. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Wednesday that China will accord all due respect to visiting leaders during the APEC Summit in Beijing next month, fueling speculation that Chinese President Xi Jinping might hold talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to end tensions. Abe has not held talks with Chinese leaders since he returned to power in December 2012. Tensions between the two countries have risen in the past year, with each side accusing the other of flying military aircraft too close to its own jets in a long-running territorial dispute over a cluster of islets in the East China Sea. Abe’s visit to the Yasukuni shrine, regarded by China as a symbol of Japan’s wartime militarism has also infuriated both China and South Korea. Economic ties have suffered in recent times although trade between Japan and China is expected to grow this year for the first time in three years. Japanese exports to China grew 2.5% to $78 billion in the first half of 2014 from the same period a year earlier, according to official Japanese figures. China is Japan’s biggest trading partner while Japan is China’s 3rd. source
