Amidst all the incredibly dysfunctional antics of the White House and Congress to try to reach an agreement to fund the US government and extend the bloated national debt limit yet again, Americans may not realize that the rest of the world is watching this tragic soap opera in Washington, DC and is steadily losing faith in American global leadership. Small wonder!
China has especially excoriated the incompetence of Washington, DC politicians with some unusually strident criticism of the US Government. China’s official press has called for the rest of the world’s nations to create a “de-Americanized world” to protect the rest of the world from “a hypocritical nation with a dysfunctional government.” China uses some very angry language as you will see in the first link. China stated that “all nations must try to shape an international system that…ensures the US keeps out of the domestic affairs of others.” Most importantly, China pointedly called for “an end to the use of the US dollar as the international reserve currency.”
In the second link, China’s anger is more specifically described. China calls for “the creation of a new international currency,” and for “a new world order [to] be put in place.” China accuses the US of “abusing its superpower status and introducing even more chaos into the world by shifting financial risks overseas…and fighting unwarranted wars under the cover of outright lies.” 
China’s angry language about the financial bumbling of the US Government may evoke a hearty “Amen” from a lot of Tea Party Republicans. Interestingly, China’s call for “a new world order” that repudiates the US dollar may be a hint where the global elites are taking the world financial system.
The above language continues to build the stage for the eventual fulfillment of Revelation 17-18’s prophecy that the current global system based on the US dollar will collapse when it is forcibly torn down by an alliance of “seven heads and ten horns” (nations or entities not named in the prophecy). China’s adamant call for a new global order that is not based on the US dollar indicates that the fulfillment of that prophecy is drawing ever-nearer. I believe that many nations and (based on current polls) even many Americans would agree with China’s denunciation of President Obama’s administration and both Houses of the US Congress for their financial incompetence and bumbling.
The greatest problem is the stubborn refusal of the Obama administration and Congress to drastically cut federal spending to make the US federal budget credible in the eyes of the world instead of a laughingstock. Since the “agreement” that was finally hammered out only “kicks the can” down the road, I believe many more nations besides China will agree that Washington, DC’s reckless financial madness will have to have an “intervention” to bring order out of the chaos in the US federal budget. Whether the solution comes as a new global currency is introduced or whether it begins via a group of regional gold- and commodity-backed new Euro, Yuan, Dinar and Ruble currencies, the era of the US dollar dominating all other economies is drawing to a close. The US dollar may be devaluated by all other nations whether the American government wants that to happen or not. When that day occurs, the AAA rating of US federal debt (already a joke) will be revoked by all ratings agencies and the American public will experience real financial and economic pain. Then Americans may start marching in the streets like the Greeks did when other nations forced Greece’s national budget to be cut and its financial house to be put in order. As always, I make no predictions re: when this will occur, but the orgy of incompetence in Washington DC by both the Executive and Legislative branches of government are hastening the arrival of such a crisis and the fulfillment of Revelation 17-18.
