If you are following current events today and wondering if things are just a bit off, or, your head is about to explode at the absurdity then you have arrived at a state that you have come to expect the unexpected. But these days, these aren’t minor upsets, these are major league mind blowing events that we once thought impossible and this week we are likely to witness some unbelievable happenings.
There is a Chinese proverb that says, “May you live in interesting times.” Like it or not, we live in interesting times and while these are times of danger and uncertainty; but they are also the most fascinating of any time in the history of mankind. I read that this Chinese proverb is actually an ancient Chinese curse and that living in uninteresting times is actually living in a time of peace and tranquility. Peace and tranquility truly do not exist at these times. Some even say that the saying is Apocalyptic which is the Greek word for a “great awakening to hidden truths.”
And the truths are everywhere for those with eyes to see and ears to hear and hearts that are not hardened. Sadly, the messages we get these days from the media, our governments, the entertainment community, the world of finance, our education system, our medical “experts” and even our religious leaders has to be sorted out for what is truth and what is misinformation.
The Bible makes it clear why God is sending a strong delusion in the end times: “They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness” (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12). Simply put, God sends a strong delusion to those who choose not to believe the gospel of Christ. Those who take delight in mocking and rejecting Him, He will condemn. And all one has to do is look at the liberal agenda worldwide to see the evil, the hatred and the lies.
There is so much to unpack in those last two paragraphs and I am by no means an expert on any of them, but I do have the blessing of discernment and am able to form an opinion and am not afraid to share despite not everyone agreeing with me. I am not here to win a popularity contest but rather to share the truths even if it makes someone unpopular.
With that said I make a conscious decision to share my truths in order that people may decide on whether they wish to follow my lead or not and while I could write a long diatribe on most all of the topics mentioned above I will stick to politics and finance as the two seem to be so inexplicably intertwined it isn’t funny. I mean, it isn’t a joke; it is a sad testament to how far we’ve devolved as a society.
So this week we have what is being called the biggest political election in the history of the USA, the mid-terms tomorrow. And the Republicans are already claiming voter fraud and exposing that Pennsylvania for example sent out 400,000 ballots to non citizens with some people in Canada even receiving them. I am not sure that is true or not but it is countered by the Democrats claiming Russia is colluding with the Republicans to disrupt the election. I especially get a kick out of the Russian accusation, as they have nothing original. Russia gets blamed for everything and has for years yet nothing ever proven. One thing is certain, nothing will be settled tomorrow night, neither side will concede and results will be questioned. And yes, that is what our world has come to.
On the economic front we have the inflation report due out of the USA on the 10th. Not that the numbers can be trusted nor the actions the market decides to take are rational. The market makers play a guessing game these days with what the Federal Reserve is going to do and frankly, it really doesn’t matter. The eventual outcome and direction of the market is down and the evidence lies in the global debt and what is happening on Main Street as opposed to the casino on Wall Street. I have attached a great 30 minute clip of Lynette Zhang where she outlines in depth that the debt we see now in the USA is much worse than 2008 and the fallout will be the same, much worse. It will come like a thief in the night when we least expect and it will be quick and it will be fast.
My clients have been using these upticks to sell their equities at high prices and invest into tangible assets like gold and silver.
If you haven’t bought gold or silver yet you should. Give me a call and we can walk you through it and then you can make a decision. There is ample reason to believe that gold and silver will rise sharply when the current financial system collapses taking the US dollar and other fiat currencies down with it. There is also currently an increasing inventory shortage, especially in silver and that is being reflected in the price rise.
We have had much time to prepare for this financial reset and gold and silver are the perfect insurance product for what is to come.
Enjoy your week and call me anytime.
Yours in Faith, Family and Finance,
