Brazil, the Next (Regional or Global) Threat to the U.S. Economic Supremacy?
In 2008, I met Chuck Pierce. He told me and a group of evangelical leaders in Brazil that God had removed his national anointing from the U.S. in 2008. For me, the confirmation came next year, when Obama (a pro-Islam, pro-sodomy and pro-abortion creature) became the U.S. president. Under his presidency, the U.S. has become the biggest exporter of the homosexual ideology in the world.
Pierce also said that God was looking for another nation to grant this anointing. He told that if Brazil got closer to Israel, God was going to give the anointing to Brazil. Then he had a vision about what would happen if Brazil began to develop into an international power: He saw the U.S. government encircling and stifling Brazil economically and militarily. He saw the U.S. filled with envy. He saw the U.S. totally determined to hinder Brazil’s economic rise.
What I understood from his vision is that the U.S., as the only superpower today, will not accept the rise of any other nation to rival its hegemony. The development of every nation is to be under the submission of U.S. interests, and these are wicked interests, because the U.S. government has abandoned the Lord long ago. The U.S. sees the economic rise of other nations as competing with its power.
I highly doubt that God is going to give his special national anointing to Brazil, my nation, because Brazil has not gotten closer to Israel. But I do not doubt that the U.S. has lost, or rejected, this anointing. As the anointing-less Saul, it will try, moved by envy, to do everything in its power to hinder and weaken any nation resembling an emergent, anointed David.
If Pierce’s prophecy is correct, God will look for another nation, not Brazil. Yet, if Brazil really changes its ways and gets closer to Israel, honoring the Jewish nation, which has always been the most honored nation by God, Brazil will prosper and rise to a superpower status, not to smash nations for economic ambitions, but to protect and honor Israel.
Probably, God will have to raise another nation, because currently Brazil is a strong moral ally of the U.S., always supporting the U.S. in every anti-family agenda in the UN system. Sadly, on abortion and sodomy, the U.S. can always count on Brazilian support. If over these reasons the U.S. lost its anointing, Brazil will not need to worry about losing what it has never gotten.
As Mary, Jesus’ mother, I kept Pierce’s vision and words in my heart, wondering if he was right about Brazil, about a U.S. envy against a possible future Brazilian rise in the global power stage, etc. Then, in 2011, George Friedman launched his book “The Next Decade: What the World Will Look Like,” by Knopf Doubleday.
Friedman is the founder of Stratfor, a Texas-based global intelligence company whose members have intelligence and military experience. With such experience, Stratfor makes strategic forecasting.
While Pierce saw America’s and Brazil’s future and their turbulences (America as an envious superpower and Brazil being stifled by her) by spiritual revelation, Friedman “saw” the future by sheer technical analysis of current events and behaviors, with U.S. intelligence data.
Pierce saw the U.S. feeling threatened by Brazil as an emerging a global superpower. Friedman saw the U.S. need to contain the rise of Brazil as a regional power.
Friedman saw no need to forecast about Brazil rising as a global superpower, because, in this respect, Brazil represents no immediate threat to U.S. interests.
Actually, only God can raise Brazil as a global superpower.
So, as forecasted by Friedman, if the U.S. should get prepared against just a regional power, what would the U.S. be capable of doing against an emerging global superpower?
Friedman’s strategic forecasting vindicates Pierce’s prophecy. Therefore, I mention several excerpts of Friedman’s book, where he says:
What happens in Latin America is of marginal importance to the United States, and the region has rarely held a significant place in American thinking.
During the Cold War, the United States became genuinely concerned about Soviet influence in the region and intervened on occasion to block it. But neither the Germans nor the Soviets made a serious strategic effort to dominate South America, because they understood that in most senses the continent was irrelevant to U.S. interests. Instead, their efforts were designed merely to irritate Washington and divert American resources.
There is only one Latin American country with the potential to emerge as a competitor to the United States in its own right, and that is Brazil. It is the first significant, independent economic and potentially global power to develop in the history of Latin America,
Right now Brazil is not a power that is particularly threatening or important to the United States, nor does the United States represent a challenge to Brazil. There is minimal economic friction, and geography prevents Brazil from easily challenging the United States.
The only challenge that Brazil could pose to the United States would be if its economic expansion continued enough for it to develop sufficient air and naval power to dominate the Atlantic between its coast and West Africa, a region not heavily patrolled by the United States.
Even though Brazil is not yet in any way a threat to American interests, the underlying American strategy of creating and maintaining balances of power in all areas requires that the United States begin working now to create a countervailing power. There is no rush in completing the strategy, but there is an interest in beginning it. In the next decade, while maintaining friendly relations with Brazil, the United States should also do everything it can to strengthen Argentina, the one country that could serve as a counterweight.
The American goal should be to slowly strengthen Argentina’s economic and political capabilities so that over the next twenty to thirty years, should Brazil begin to emerge as a potential threat to the United States, Argentina’s growth rivals Brazil’s.
The United States also should be prepared to draw the American military closer to the Argentine military, but through the civilian government, so as not to incite fears that the U.S. is favoring the Argentine military as a force in the country’s domestic politics. The American president must be careful not to show his true intentions in this, and not to rush. A unique program for Argentina could generate a premature Brazilian response, so Brazil should be included in any American program, if it wishes to participate. If necessary, this entire goodwill effort can be presented as an attempt to contain [socialist bolivarianism] in Venezuela. It will all cost money, but it will be much cheaper, in every sense, than confronting Brazil in the 2030s or 2040s over control of the South Atlantic.
The American relation with the hemisphere divides into three parts: Brazil, Canada, and Mexico. Brazil is far away and isolated. The United States can shape a long-term strategy of containment, but it is not pressing.
The United States has a secure position in the hemisphere. The sign of an empire is its security in its region, with conflicts occurring far away without threat to the homeland. The United States has, on the whole, achieved this.
Above all else, hemispheric governments must not perceive the United States as meddling in their affairs, a perception that sets in motion anti-American sentiment, which can be troublesome. Of course the United States will be engaged in meddling in Latin American affairs, particularly in Argentina. But this must be embedded in an endless discussion of human rights and social progress. In fact, particularly in the case of Argentina, both will be promoted. It is the motive vis-à-vis Brazil that needs to be hidden. But then, all presidents must in all things hide their true motives and vigorously deny the truth when someone recognizes what they are up to.
Brazil must be worked with and long-term plans for containment must, if necessary, be laid.
By Friedman’s analysis, Latin America represents no threat to U.S. interests today. By his forecasting, Brazil could, in the long run, represent some threat. Yet, by Pierce’s prophecy, it is certain that if God raises Brazil after Brazilian leaders embrace Israel, the U.S. will see Brazil as a threat to be immediately contained.
