THANK GOD FOR GOLD, PART ONE

Leave a comment

Why do we say, “Thank God”, when the world is on fire?  Do we really have anything to be thankful for this Thanksgiving?  And why is gold such an undervalued asset?

While we fight our way through numbness and Weimer hyperinflation posing as a 1930s depression I’m not dumbfounded to learn that debt continues to mount exponentially everywhere I look.  It’s in the tea leaves of global financial stress and it’s the bottom line of every paycheck we earn.  Everybody’s heading for bankruptcy, and nobody seems to have a really solid answer on how to avoid it.

No business or governmental entity appears to be immune.  Financial writer John Rubino says nothing demonstrates the “imminent bankruptcy” problem for cities, states, and countries that are swimming in unrepayable debt better than the financial obligations of New York City.

“They just announced that they have unfunded liabilities for retiree healthcare, just retiree healthcare and not the rest of their pensions, of $100 billion,” Rubino, founder of blog and news aggregation site dollarcollapse.com, says.  “That’s for a city, not a state or a country, and if you add their unfunded liabilities for their pensions, which is another $50 billion or so, and their official debt, which is $50 billion or so, you get $200 billion that New York City is on the hook for that they have not put money away for.”

Across our nation many cities are having major financial problems that run parallel to debt.  Unfunded liabilities for pension funds are a real liability.  Unfunded liabilities for retiree healthcare alone, not the rest of their pensions, can be astronomical, as the New York City example illustrates. 

We’re talking about a city filled with generations of unlimited healthcare for life for those who retire at age sixty, which is a really big expense.  Then you add in the pension fund unfunded liabilities, that cities and states are on the hook for, but have not put the money away for. 

So if you’re a fireman, cop or school teacher, and you worked ten years for New York City, you got health care coverage forever.  Baby Boomer cops, firefighters and teachers are retiring in greater numbers now and they’re going want to get the benefits of that healthcare coverage and retirement pension as cities’ finances fail into bankruptcy, so where’s it going to come from?

Major cities like New York and Chicago and Los Angeles are facing bankruptcy because of these unfunded liabilities, and who’s going to be the first one to blow and how will that affect your family and state?

The city of New York’s problems aren’t my city’s problems, exactly, yet, but they are the type of problem facing pretty much every major city and state tied to every country in the world that’s tied to the U.S. dollar.  Think Puerto Rico, Turkey, and Chicago, Illinois.  Who is going to pay their debt bond holders when their revenue streams dry up?  Who’s going to pay to haul the trash and clean city streets?  It can be difficult trying to be thankful in a world that seems to be at war with everyone while we all go bankrupt.

WHO WILL BE THE FIRST DOMINO TO FALL IN THE PUBLIC PENSION CRISIS?

A hundred other states and cities are in the same position, says John Rubino to Greg Hunter on usawatchdog.com.  When one goes they all go.  At some point, the whole thing blows up.  We’re talking about our financial system here, and it’s all interrelated through debt.

Unfunded liabilities in many cities and states are greater than the amount of official debt.  They are real obligations.    

Financial stresses are cyclical, Rubino says, and the question for New York is will they be able to raise the revenue needed to continue to keep the city going and to pay off their bonds?  Running a city or government is expensive.  Where will NewYork – Chicago, LA, Illinois, Turkey, Puerto Rico or the US – continue to get their revenue from to pay their growing debt?  New York has Wall Street, and New York does well when there’s a bull market and everyone’s making money and paying taxes.  But what happens when there’s a bear market? Where then do they raise the capital to pay their bills? 

Ongoing expenses can eat up a tax revenue quickly, and then you throw in massive public sector obligations like pensions and healthcare that will break the bank for these municipalities.

 States and cities must have the money to take out the trash and keep the water running which can pose tremendous conflict when it comes time to pay their bond holders.  If they don’t they will be closed out of debt markets forever.  Forced to live within their means.  Make cuts, or raise taxes.  Taxes go up, services diminish, and everyone leaves.  The tax base moves out, which is what we see here in the Golden State.  Think San Francisco.

In California our problem is that we rely on Silicon Valley and tech IPO capital gains and when that goes away during a bear market our tax revenues plunge too, Rubino says.  What happens when the cash flow simply isn’t there for us anymore?  Do we all have to move to Reno?  If we get to the point of where nobody can pay their debts and the bondholders get stiffed, then what?

The government comes and bails everybody out, right.  When major companies like GE or a state or locality goes bankrupt the government usually steps in and assumes the bankrupt balance sheet of that company, municipality or state.  This has been the American way of doing business for many decades.  The taxpayers take on the burden, having assumed all of the risk, and our national debt expands.

WHAT IF NO ONE BAILS THEM OUT THIS TIME?

We don’t have to bail out failing cities or corporations.  We can allow them to go belly up and learn their lessons.  That’s how it goes with capitalism.  There’s room for failure.  It’s called bankruptcy. 

Of course even if the federal government doesn’t bail them out the Federal Reserve could step in with loan guarantees or some other kind of tools to bail out bankrupt entities, Rubino says.

President Trump can help teach a lesson to those who control the financial system, but will he?  Or are the numbers too great and will the threat to destabilize the entire system be too scary to most?  Everyone wants to know who will be the next Lehman Brothers.  Will it be Chicago?  Goldman Sachs?  Apple?  PG&E?  New York City?

Due to all the debt America has taken on we’re going to see a collapse in the U.S. dollar, the financial writer tells Greg Hunter.  That much is clear.  There’s too much pressure on the system.  That pressure has to be released somehow.  It could be released through the deflationary path, where we let them go bankrupt.  Or we could bail them out.

But is that a legitimate solution to our financial issues at this time?  Rubino says that it only masks the problem.  “If you bail out all that debt, you shift the pressure over to the currency markets,” Rubino says.  “In other words, we’re creating trillions and trillions of new dollars, dumping them in the system propping up the bond market.  And then people realize the currency itself is in oversupply.”

That’s when people convert their currencies into hard assets like farmland, rental properties, or gold and silver.  The currency has collapsed and smart investors want value.

But the economic model is still going to have to be replaced.  The present system is destroyed beyond repair.  That’s why Russia, China and other Asian countries are bailing on the U.S. dollar and buying up all the gold.

“You reinstitute some kind of sound money,” Rubino says.  “So that is the most likely way out of this for us.  This is what happens when people understand fiat currencies and that giving government an unlimited printing press is a bad idea and we have to rectify that.”

How we rectify that will be discussed in part two of Thank God for gold.

WILL GOD’S AGENDA STIFLE DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE IN CALIFORNIA?

Leave a comment

Ah, us liberal Californians, you got to love us or leave us, but we’re going to look good either way. That’s because we work hard at it. It takes time and ambition to soak up sun like George Hamilton and remove lines in our faces like Jane Fonda. We like buttocks surgeries because they make us look like Ms. Bumbum and vegan diets because they make us look thin in our mirror’s reflection. Some of us spend lifetimes and fortunes never succeeding but always finding better ways to look even better in our quest to entice the other side.

California lifestyles say “rich” while we work endless hours to make the kind of money it takes to attract a like inclined individual from the opposite sex. This is how it was taught back in the 70s and it’s how it’s still being played out by many today. Once we set our magnet tentacles into this new person of interest, we can then work on what we’ve spent a lifetime being programmed into dreaming about — tying the proverbial knot with a White Knight and living happily ever after.

We see it happen all the time on the Disney Channel. It’s embedded into the romantic subplot of inane stories designed to program underdeveloped minds. Of course eventually, after we’ve grown up and had our own kids and family dissension has set in and everyone’s kind of gone off in different directions; when the lightening juice of love and lust of overrun hearts that got us together in the first place has simply dried up, stark reality can be very painful. That’s when we put the alcohol and pain medications down and get on our PC or mobile phone device and hire the best divorce lawyer our money can buy. We pay her handsomely to undue “it” at all cost. For many, divorce is by far the easiest segment of the cost of doing life here on the Gold Coast.

HAVE THE WINDS OF DIVORCE SHIFTED IN CALIFORNIA?

The skies have changed in California and it has nothing to do with the smell of sun tan lotion and chemtrails. There was a Red Tsunami of Evangelical Christian proportion that has swept through our state along with the 2018 Midterms, overturning tiny little blue umbrellas and flooding castles made of champagne sand. Liberals have been diagnosed with spinning heads and PTSD. With this overtaking of Biblical proportion comes an attempted reform of values centered around Christian Doctrine, of which many Californians generally aren’t really that familiar.

Thus it seems like a good idea for all married Californians – or non married Californians who are thinking about getting married – and all divorce attorneys to understand the divorce game is undoubtedly about to change forever. No matter how we look at it Jesus and Church inspired voters are back in town and there’s no reason to believe they’ll be leaving anytime soon. Thus they promise to spread tremendous influence affecting all aspects of our lives.

THE EVANGELICALS HAVE SET UP SHOP

The New York Times talked about how the Evangelicals have set up shop in and are fighting to retake California. That’s a fact. They say they’re tired of being stepped on and they’re aiming straight for our hearts.

Try to imagine Jesus espousing conservative political undertones, while bringing back his messages to a state with vast evangelical pockets of population. This equated to many Christians recently running for city council seats, mayorships, and every level of government to help effect change in California. Change is happening whether we voted for it or not.

The mission is pretty simple. It’s about faith and Jesus with a parallel message of conservative cause. The conservative approach opposes hot button issues like same sex marriage and abortion. It supports conversion therapy which is intended to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. In 2012, California passed a law restricting the practice on minors.

How does that bode for other conservative values supported by the Evangelical Christians, and the Catholic Church, that intersect with contradicting liberal values practiced by many longtime Californians? We know those who support abortion and same-sex marriage are willing to march into the streets and protest in support of their beliefs. We also know what Jesus and the Church have always taught about divorce and remarriage, and that makes for great conflict for many who like to divorce and remarry quickly in California.

The teachings expressed by Jesus, the Church, and Evangelical Christians similarly offend many core liberals. Jesus is about sanctity of matrimony. Many Californians are about looking tanned, making money, divorcing and moving on to new relationships, and not necessarily in that order. Something is going to have to give eventually here and no matter what it is we are going to witness change, on many levels, marriage and divorce being a major one.

JESUS, THE CHURCH, DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE

It is taught that Jesus elevated the act of matrimony to the status of a sacrament. This means a valid marriage between two baptized people is considered a sacramental marriage that cannot be dissolved, writes Fr. Richard Heilman at romancatholicman.com. Divorce is out of the question if you belong to the Catholic Church.

In an article entitled, What Jesus And The Church Have Always Taught About Divorce & Remarriage, Fr. Heilman writes that if “anyone so married attempts to divorce and remarry, he enters a state of perpetual adultery which is a mortal sin.” This of course can lead to many family problems for Catholics. But how many mortal sinners would those rules make out of us ordinary citizens who live and marry in California? Do we really have to be a church member to be a mortal sinner? Could these rules some day apply beyond the Church into everyday life? And does the rule apply equally to men and women?

Jesus appears to speak on behalf of men when he said: “Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and he who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery” (Luke 16:18, cf. Mark 10:11-12). That’s a lot of adultery for men to watch out for, transgenders need not apply. This is about a “man” and “woman” who have commingled their lives through holy sacrament. Through the Church’s eyes they are bound for life.

According to God’s law once we make the sacrament of marriage we are bound to it for the life of either party. Paul seems to have spoken for women on the issue when he said: “Thus a married woman is bound by law to her husband as long as he lives … Accordingly, she will be called an adulteress if she lives with another man while her husband is alive” (Rom. 7:2-3).

“Adulteress” is a situation for the Church to be handled from within the institutional framework. It has been through the turn of many centuries and cultures. This does not apply to California divorce courts or “man’s” laws. Fr. Heilman notes that these strictures only apply to sacramental marriages – those between baptized people. For marriages involving an unbaptized party, a different rule applies (1 Cor. 7:12-15).

Although various cultures have allowed for divorce legally Jesus and the Church have always been consistent with their message. The Greco-Roman culture, for instance, allowed for easy divorce and remarriage although Church Fathers proclaimed Christ’s teaching on the indissolubility of marriage. This is the same thing the Catholic Church has done today in our over-the-counter divorce culture (cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church 1614-1615), Fr. Heilman writes. Many churches have modified their teachings to accommodate the pro-divorce ethos that dominates modern culture, but the Catholic Church remains consistent in teaching what Jesus taught.

Under marriage today a baptized couple can “remarry” after divorce only if the Church finds that a valid sacramental marriage never existed in the first place (a decree of nullity; see CCC 1629), Fr. Heilman writes. The “remarriage” is actually their first marriage. If, however, the parties were genuinely and sacramentally married, they may in some cases live apart and even obtain a legal separation, but they are not free to remarry (CCC 1649). A divorce is simply out of the question.

AN ACT OF GOD

This is “not a command of men”, but one that “comes directly from Jesus Christ”, Father Heilman writes. As Paul said: “To the married I give charge, not I but the Lord, that the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, let her remain single or else be reconciled to her husband) – and that the husband should not divorce his wife” (1 Cor. 7:10-15). This is an important issue that many Californians will be looking at under an entirely different light than they have in the past. Times have changed. “American culture” is transforming back to American culture. After all, we were once a nation created under God.

Divorce will never again be looked at with the same liberal attitude we in America have displayed since the 1960s “cultural revolution”. Things have changed since then and that continued transformation just might begin to accelerate for the good of us all.

 

 

2018 MIDTERMS: CIA DEMOCRATS VERSUS GOD’S AGENDA. WHO YOU VOTING FOR? PART 2

Leave a comment

As if the 2018 Midterm Elections aren’t complicated enough consider this factor: The Central Intelligence Agency is in league with the Democrat Party to take control of the United States House of Representatives. At least that’s how economist, columnist and former Reagan Administration Treasury Assistant for Economic Policy Paul Craig Roberts, who was recently banned by Twitter for expressing the wrong opinion publicly, frames it in a guest contribution piece he posted at paulcraigroberts.org entitled, “The CIA in league with the Democratic Party is Moving to Take Control of the House of Representatives.”

This is a very serious issue facing Americans who believe in something called “Freedom”. We do need to come to terms with those with whom we are truly dealing, once we identify who they are.

“An extraordinary number of former intelligence and military operatives from the CIA, Pentagon, National Security Council and State Department are seeking nomination as Democratic candidate for Congress in the 2018 midterm elections. The potential influx of military-intelligence personnel into the legislature has no precedent in U.S. political history,” writes Patrick Martin in the original article posted by Roberts called, “The CIA Democrats: Part one.

Writing for something called the World Socialist Web Site Martin notes the Democrats have gone the way of the military intelligence candidate. If the Democrats capture a majority in the House of Representatives on November 6 candidates drawn from the military-intelligence apparatus will comprise up to half of the new Democratic members of Congress. They will hold the balance of power in the Congressional lower chamber.

Democratic party leaders are known to have actively recruited candidates with a military or intelligence background for competitive seats where there is the best chance of ousting an incumbent Republican or filling a vacancy, frequently clearing the field for a favored “star” recruit, Martin writes. “The Democratic leaders are promoting CIA agents and Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans,” he writes. There are far more former spies and soldiers seeking the nomination of the Democratic Party than of the Republican Party.

The military-intelligence candidates are disproportionately favored by the party apparatus, encouraged to run in districts that are the most likely takeover targets. Military-intelligence candidates account for 10 of the 22 districts selected for the most high-profile attention as part of the “red-to-blue” program, or nearly half, Martin writes. In some cases, military-intelligence candidates have amassed huge campaign war chests that effectively shut out any potential rivals, an indication that the financial backers of the Democratic Party have lined up behind them.

WHAT WOULD A CIA INDUCED DEMOCRAT VICTORY IN 2018 MIDTERMS LOOK LIKE?

Democrat and House minority leader Nancy Pelosi is described as already “plotting her return to the speakership,” laying out an agenda for “when – if – she wins,” Breitbart News reports. The former speaker of the house promises to introduce a package for campaign finance reform as the first bill of the 116th Congress.

Should the Democrats take the 2018 election Pelosi’s next priorities as speaker, she told Politico, would include new gun control laws and amnesty for illegal aliens. “After that, Democrats are looking at lowering drug prices and then will try to work with Republicans on a gun background check bill and protecting so-called Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children,” Pelosi told Politico.

If the Democrats win the House we can expect more gun control measures, open border policy, amnesty and sanctuary cities. The Politico article does not mention impeachment, but other Democrats have, so we can expect that too.

A Democrat victory in the 2018 Midterms promises an attack to impeach President Trump while others like Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who will likely head the House Judiciary Committee if Democrats take over, will continue investigating United States Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

If November’s elections put the chairman’s gavel in Nadler’s hand he expects the House Judiciary Committee to immediately subpoena records from the White House and the F.B.I. and try to interview Justice Kavanaugh’s accusers and the dozens of potential witnesses they identified.

BUT WHAT IF GOD WINS THE 2018 MIDTERMS?

All the Democrats have planned for this 2018 election is to gang up with the mainstream media to terminate Trump’s agenda. They have no other platform.

If “God’s Agenda” were to actually affect the 2018 Midterms what might that look like for the average homeless layman on the American street? According to the President of the United States it would begin with more tax cuts. “We are looking at putting in a very major tax cut for middle-income people. And if we do that it’ll be sometime just prior to November … “, POTUS is quoted on Twitter as saying.

Fortune.com cites the president as floating the idea of a 10% middle income tax cut. Critics argue that might be a better idea if there were actually a middle class left in America to tax.

President Trump has also told us that we can expect this election to be about law and order which means he will continue his quest to drain the Washington D.C. swamp. There have also been less than subtle indications that Trump could maneuver to break up corrupt monopolistic institutions like big media, the Silicon Valley, and big pharma.

And what about the national debt that is almost $22 trillion strong and growing, exponentially? We can only imagine how steep the debt will climb after America’s next qualitative easing binge which we are quickly approaching. How much more debt will we then be printing up just to keep our central banks afloat?

President Trump was brought aboard the revolution by American patriots and U.S. military leaders so he could deal with a country in bankruptcy and at never ending war. With tremendous backing he is using a multi-prong attack on our economy by bringing back to the U.S. manufacturing, employment, and tax cuts for the average citizen. He is instilling strength into what would otherwise be a truly bankrupt domestic economy. That’s why we will continue to see heavy finger pointing at the Fed by our presidential Tweeter.

President Trump holds the Federal Reserve Bank directly responsible for our country’s financial problems. He’s been heavily critical of the Fed for raising rates and acting way too independent for any of our good. The central bank operation acts on behalf of central bankers only. There’s no consideration given to us the people of America or the world or the economic realities we face every day. That’s why Trump blames the Federal Reserve for badly damaging the American real estate and automobile markets by pricing out consumer loans.

So what is going to happen to America’s debt problem with the Fed after the election? One option is to default on it. Completely erase the debt like Trump is said to have done with Puerto Rico. But that would wipe out central banking as we know it here in the U.S. and that’s probably not going happen if Democrats win the House and impeach Trump.

So does prosperity ever come into play for our families in all of this? Do we have to drain the swamp in the financial system too just so our children will have a future to live for? And does that mean getting rid of the Federal Reserve might be a good idea?

American politician and former businessman David Stockman believes it does. “There is no need for central bankers at all when it comes to economic growth, jobs, incomes and prosperity,” Stockman writes via contra corner blog.

If there’s no need for the Federal Reserve Bank then what will American families need to do to succeed financially? “Work, effort, production and enterprise are what create both current income and future growth,” Stockman writes. “Demand flows from supply and spending flows from income; capitalism doesn’t need any U-3 obsessed central bankers to make it all happen.”

Simple economics of which President Trump seems well aware. We need to bring U.S. dollars and manufacturing back home, with jobs to run them, of which we are beginning to see the results.

Which is probably why the Chicago Tribune recently called the United States the most competitive economy on the planet. We are beginning to witness prosperity and the mainstream media is reluctantly telling us about it. Maybe that’s how God planned it the whole time.

Like the New York Times declaring in a major headline: “Competitiveness Rank Of No. 1 Makes It Official – U.S. Economy Is Great Again”. God is talking through Trump to the people of the world and the mass media is starting to take notice.

Did you see the World Economic Forum just named President Trump’s America as having the best economy in the world. That’s our America too. Yours and mine. And maybe we will be great again some day. The Midterm Elections are going to play a big part in that. Especially if there’s a “Red Tsunami” that’s all part of “God’s Agenda.”

 

IS GOD RIDING HIS SURFBOARD TO THE “RED TSUNAMI”? PART ONE

Leave a comment

Like many of those who suffer from PTSD, former firefighter Mark Taylor knows what it’s like to fight through sleepless nights of sweat while facing an unbearable attack of mind, body and soul from forces greater than oneself. It’s a scuffle to survive, where the will to live can become weak with fever as the desperate struggle for truth becomes paramount for existence. For Mark Taylor it’s always been about him recognizing God’s guidance to truth in time of need to help raise awareness to a greater understanding of The Creator’s relationship with the awakening of the collective human consciousness.

In 2011 Mark Taylor had already predicted Donald J. Trump would become president of the United States. He wrote a popular book about it called Trump Prophecies and they made a terrific movie out of his book.

The humble prophet has also predicted former U.S. President Barack Obama will be going to prison and President Trump is going to appoint a total of 3 to possibly five new “Constitutionalist” United States Supreme Court Justices before he leaves office. The recent political battle against the Democrat Socialist Leftists just to get Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court is Trump’s second of five SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) victories.

Taylor is a proponent of bringing to light the severe PTSD issues firefighters face. He says that firefighters and other first responders suffer from PTSD with similar frequency as do military war veterans and police officers. Taylor speaks publicly to bring about answers to complicated problems that face citizens living in every community in America.

Regarding the upcoming 2018 Midterm Elections Taylor says the conclusion is foregone. “It’s going to be a Red Tsunami,” he says.

IT’S GOING TO BE A RED TSUNAMI

Donald J. Trump has played a major roll in helping to save America from a deep threat stemming from multiple fronts. He has helped stave off a complete collapse of the global financial system, helped reduce unemployment in the African American community, and is helping to bring prosperity to the American economy in ways we haven’t seen in decades.

As promised President Trump is lowering taxes and taking on the Communist Chinese regime with tariffs and a trade war that is helping to balance the world economically. China’s communist regime has been out of control for many years and they have played a major part in the problems that plague America domestically in every facet of our country.

With one hand President Trump is giving tough love to Russia and pulling out of the landmark nuclear weapons treaty over Russia’s new impossible to defend against hypersonic missiles while pointing the big finger of the other hand at the Federal Reserve Bank as a major culprit in the blowing up of our domestic economy, the ever expanding U.S. debt, and the financially devastating raising of interest rates.

Trump has been attacked from the mass media and the left ever since he announced he was running for president back in 2015. The whole focus of the left is to at all costs remove Trump from power. They’ve been citing his agenda as an excuse, the talking heads of the leftist mainstream media distorting facts and disinforming the world to shape a confused public opinion.

So what exactly is Trump’s agenda? Is it to destroy the Democratic party so the Republicans can win the House and Senate? Is it to destroy the Federal Reserve Bank and return printing America’s currency to the United States Treasury?

Actor James Cromwell calls it “nascent fascism,” and warns of “revolution” with “blood in the streets”, which means Trump supporters are nascent fascists and it will be their blood flowing in the streets.

Mark Taylor says it’s all about humility. He says the President isn’t pressing any kind of agenda. Taylor calls President Trump the same type of down to earth human being acting as a servant of God as he turned out to be. President Trump is humbly serving the will of God and this is not about his having an agenda at all.   What this is about is God’s Agenda.

GOD’S AGENDA IN REAL TIME U.S. POLITICS

If God’s Agenda applied to present day politics the 2018 Midterms might be a good place to show up. Across America there are major political battlefields for state governorships and the U.S. Senate that are going to need to be taken if God’s Agenda is to be fulfilled.

The U.S. House of Representatives provides a key battlefield that has witnessed President Trump stumping all across the country on behalf of GOP representatives. This might also provide a major window into how God’s Plan might (or might not) be applied this November. There appear to be twenty pivotal races that some political experts say are expected to determine which party controls the House of Representatives after voters go to the polls on November 6. The result of this election will reverberate through our family’s futures for generations to come, so we will want to make it count. It’s that important.

Many experts say Democrats already hold the lead. The generic ballot advantage of Democrats in Congressional races in the midterm elections holds steady at around 7.6 percent, says RealClear Politics. This is slightly above the five percent generic ballot advantage most political experts believe Democrats have needed to win a majority in the House since the gerrymandering of congressional district boundaries by Republican controlled legislatures after the 2010 census.

Breitbart News previously reported that only 95 of the 435 House races are considered competitive. Of the 340 House seats that are not competitive, 150 are safely Republican, while 190 are safely Democrat.

Breitbart News estimates that 66 of the 95 competitive races are now likely Republican, while nine are now likely Democrat. Breitbart has classified the remaining 20 key competitive races as election day toss-ups. Nineteen of those seats are currently held by a Republican. Only one is currently held by a Democrat.

As things stand at the time of this publication 209 seats are likely Democrat, while 206 likely Republican. In order to maintain a majority in the House of Representatives, Republicans must win 12 of these 20 key races that are the remaining toss-ups.

Right now the polls give the Democrats the edge in winning the House of Representatives. The truth is there appear to be a range of outcomes in which either party ends up with a majority in the House.

A best outcome for the Republicans scenario according to Breitbart News would have them winning 14 of these remaining 20 toss-up races and emerge with a narrow five vote margin over the Democrats when the 116th Congress convenes in January. That would make the score 220 Republicans to 215 Democrats.

The best outcome for the Democrats would see them running the table on these 20 “toss-up” races and end up with a 23 vote majority in the 116th Congress, 229 Democrats to 206 Republicans.

To do so the Democrats will need the help of the CIA. We will find out why in Part Two of this Midterm Election special.

 

 

HOW MUCH GOLD DOES THE U.S. REALLY OWN AND HOW MUCH WILL IT COST US?

Leave a comment

Two weeks ago we published an interesting article regarding the situation where the U.S. may or may not have enough gold to back our new U.S. currency when it debuts on the international financial marketplace. The United States Federal Reserve Note is soon to be history and it’s only a matter of time before it is replaced with a new U.S. currency that will have to be gold backed.

We received many positive responses regarding the article one of which was from a former client who works in the international institutional banking industry, which is completely different than the commercial banking industry we have become used to here in the U.S. These are the organizations that deal in assets with banking institutions that fund national central banks all around the world. These are the entities that own the real assets of the world, not the green backed paper with the ink that’s printed on it that we trade here in the West and call value.

Rita and I hadn’t spoken with each other for some time but she said she liked my article and it felt like old times. A mutual friend had sent the link of my blog to her. Back in the good ol’ days I used to tease Rita and call her “Lovely Rita meter maid” because she was a very lovely lady. She still is and very bright, a well educated woman who has always been very supportive of my writing. But this time she said there was “a problem” with some of the information I had provided. She zeroed in on the amount of gold I claimed the United States government claimed it owned. I thought the focus of her response to be odd since I had researched my information impeccably, but it was right at the center of what my article was about and I had to respect it. She was very succinct in what she said.

Regarding the actual amounts of gold in the United States I wrote that, “America claims to hold 8,133.5 tons of physical gold in its official reserves.” The disagreement my former client has with this figure is that she believes it is actually much lower. “I think the total amount is not the massive amount quoted with the real figure being far below the quoted figure,” Rita writes.

It is a fair response and I know Rita knows exactly of what she speaks. She’s been working the international financial industry game a long time, much of her time these days spent dealing with computers, financial documents, attorneys, banking officials, and members of international law enforcement. She’s precise with her work and provides specific statistics.

The problem is there is one factor that no one appears to have caught on to, Rita writes. “That is that the World Gold Council has stated that there have only been about 165,000 MT (metric tons) of the precious metal ever produced.”

That “official” figure had oddly grown since 2010 in amounts that make no historical sense. “Back in 2010 the figure was 135,000 MT (metric tons), so there is a 30,000 MT addition in 8 years which practically is just not possible because all the gold mines in the world cannot produce that much gold in 8 years, which is 3,750 MT per year,” Rita writes.

Rita is an international banking and precious metals expert and I trust her experience and reasoning for the steep increase in physical gold in U.S. possession. She’s saying that somehow Uncle Sam obtained it illegally. “Therefore I can only assume that the US is adding in some of the gold that they have stolen,” she writes. “In which case the real figure for the U.S. gold holdings is likely to be somewhere between 1,000 MT and 1,500 MT, if that.”

There are several disturbing prospects raised by Rita the first of which is that if she is correct, and the U.S. does in fact only have 1,000 MT to 1,500 MT of gold, then how does that figure suddenly rise to the 8,133.5 tons of gold I cited in my article? That’s the official figure. Or is the officially stated 8,133.5 MT figure a lie?

Rita writes that, “Russia and China are snapping up everything sold by the global legal bullion Markets, so the big question is, ‘Where has the United States suddenly got their gold from?????'”

DO WE HAVE THE GOLD OR DON’T WE?

If it’s true, that America has dramatically increased our amounts of gold assets, beyond the gold industry production capabilities, then how did we do that?

Rita says it’s obvious that we stole it from her clients. She sites specific U.S. military assets as being used in the transporting process. “We have calculated a loss of 1.2 million MT of gold from my clients’ banks,” Rita writes, “which we have traced as having been stolen by American interests, and shipped out … by U.S. Navy ships and U.S. Air Force C17 and C130 aircraft.”

Rita sites specific instances of United States government agents in the U.S. military as being responsible for stealing American gold from other countries around the world, particularly Asia and Europe, and bringing it back to American soil (or elsewhere). She also says we steal gold out of South America, The Middle East, and Africa. She says it’s been going on for a long time.

Which of course brings us back to: How much gold does America really have? Do we have enough gold to back a new currency to replace the Federal Reserve Note? If not, where are we going to get it from since the U.S. dollar is being replaced globally, and other countries aren’t going to sell us valuable assets like gold for worthless paper?

And if we do have enough gold to back a new U.S. currency, how did we get it? How much did we pay for it? Do we have receipts? Or did we steal it? And if so, wouldn’t we have to pay it back?

WHO’S GOING TO PAY WHOM FOR WHAT GOLD?

The number repeatedly stated by the government and media for the U.S. national debt is $21 trillion. Who is going to pay that off when the U.S. dollar crashes?

Michigan State University economist Mark Skidmore and Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD), claim that another $21 trillion has come up missing from audits of HUD and the Department of Defense (DOD). That’s another $21 trillion in debt our children and our children’s children are never going to be able to repay.

That’s $42 trillion of debt that we know America owes and then if we have to pay for the gold that Rita says was stolen by our government, how much would that cost us? How much would the interest alone be? To whom would we have to pay it back? And does that mean our families are going to be indentured servants in perpetuity?

 

 

DON’T WALK IN FEAR, WALK IN FAITH – GOD’S MOVEMENT TO SAVE AMERICA COMING TO A THEATER NEAR YOU

2 Comments

This is the true story of a silent and powerful prayer movement that is sweeping America…

On February 18, 2017, First Lady of the United States Melania Trump (FLOTUS) led the audience in the Lord’s Prayer at a rally in Florida.  She was bringing God back into the mainstream of U.S. life.  And then she was attacked for doing so.

First Lady Melania Trump’s efforts to bring God back into America’s way of doing business is consistent with what her husband U.S. President Donald Trump has been doing since before the 2016 election through his support base with a deeply guided political direction.  He represents our country which houses the largest Christian population in the world and this scenario was all specifically predicted by several people going back long ago.

One prophet was named the Hermit of Loreto.  The “Roman Catholic Man” reports a fascinating story of a man’s encounter with the Hermit of Loreto, the author of the blue “Pieta” prayer book (which has sold over ten million copies), at the site of the Holy House of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Loreto, Italy.

Loreto is an important Christian site for Catholics and in this video Father Giacomo Capoverdi shares an amazing premonition by the Hermit of Loreto.  The story dates back to the 1980s where the hermit speaks about “A man who is living right now who I believe in the future is going to lead America back to God,” Father Capoverdi says.  The man named in this 1980’s premonition was Donald J. Trump.

GOD DID NOT DESERT AMERICA

If you get your news outside the mainstream you might be aware that there have been thousands of CEOs, judges, politicians, bankers, entertainers and the like who have resigned or been forced out of their elite positions and cushy paying jobs. This is no coincidence. Either is the fact that almost 52,000 secret indictments wait in court files as U.S. prosecutors prepare to further drain the swamp by prosecuting in military tribunals many of the really bad players who have tried to destroy America.

Experts predict this is going to likely result in a rough few months while the U.S. government is rounding up these people.  There’s going to be civil unrest and Martial Law and we’re going to want to make sure our families are prepared and safe.

We need to stock up on cash, food, and water and prepare for more hurricanes, fires, and other kinds of natural disasters, says Christian author and former firefighter Mark Taylor.  But when we come out of it America’s going to be a much better place.

In 2011 Mark Taylor also predicted Donald Trump would become President of the United States. That’s why he wrote his book and he says it’s all about the Trump Administration cleaning out the swamp.

“This cleansing has to happen,” Taylor says.  “Don’t walk in fear walk in faith.”

GOD IS IN CONTROL

We are assured that God is in control.  Everything we are experiencing, all the difficult times, the desperate needs of impoverished citizens, it’s all part of God’s Plan.  As is Taylor’s movie, “The Trump Prophecy”, which is only going to be shown for two days, October 2nd and 4th, in 1,200 theaters nationwide.  That’s it, so get your tickets now while you can.

God told Mark Taylor to premiere his movie thirty (30) days before the midterms “to help out with the midterms, period.”  The 2018 midterms are the most important election in the U.S. since the Civil War and that’s why we’ve got to go out and vote.  The future of mankind is dependent upon our placing the righteous politicians into a position of power and them changing the laws to make for a healthier and more prosperous society for all Americans.  We need to do that now, this year, pronto.  The swamp needs to be cleansed as soon as possible.  The fate of our collective future depends upon it.

IT’S ALL PART OF GOD’S PLAN

The Trump movie is based upon “The Trump Prophecies” book.  It covers Mark Taylor’s back story as a firefighter and how the “Trump Prophecy” came about, ultimately leading into a national prayer movement which ended up with God performing a miracle on November 8th, 2017.

“Keeping the most evil person out of the White House, “Taylor says, “and bringing in a man of righteousness, Donald Trump, period.” God’s Plan.

“The Trump Prophecy” is the true story of a silent and powerful prayer movement that took place during the 2016 election.  It was a movement that began as people across the nation started praying for our country where God would hear our cry and begin to turn the people back to Him.

A NATIONAL PRAYER MOVEMENT

The Prayer Movement is not over.  Many people all over America are still praying.  It was not a prayer movement to elect President Trump – that would be a short-sighted prayer and it would be putting hope in man rather than in Whom our hope belongs.  The prayer movement is much bigger as the fate of humanity hangs in the balance of what we can achieve. There are many changes we need to pray for.

Mark Taylor says he is affiliated with two “alive and well” prayer groups.  They are:

1)  strikeforceofprayer.com and

2)  rockingthewestcoastprayergroup.com

Many people are still praying five days a week for this country, our president, what is about to go down, and how we are going to react to it.

The bible says, Pray and He will heal your land.  It truly is time for us to pray, to turn away from our wicked ways, to have our sins forgiven and America healed.  There’s plenty of work to be done for everybody and our children and children’s children appreciate our efforts in the long run.

 

 

DOES THE U.S. HAVE ENOUGH GOLD TO BACK THE NEW U.S. DOLLAR?

1 Comment

The U.S. dollar as we know it is about to be replaced by a new currency. We don’t know when. It could be this year, or maybe next year, we don’t know. The question is not if? the Federal Reserve Note (U.S. Dollar) will be replaced but when? When it does, it’s going to have to be gold backed with value. Real assets like gold will have to back the new U.S. dollar at least in part for America, and Americans, to get back onto the global financial carousel with economic independence and the ability to coexist with foreign currencies that are backed by gold.

The important question to us as Americans with family members to provide for and a desire to see our spending power grow is how much if any gold does the U.S. actually possess? A legacy of secrecy still surrounds how much gold America has, author James Ledbetter, editor of “Inc. magazine” and the author of “One Nation Under Gold: How One Precious Metal Has Dominated the American Imagination for Four Centuries”, writes for the Los Angeles Times. “Some of the conservative and libertarian figures who demand that the Federal Reserve be audited, for example, grumble that there may be a lot less gold — maybe none! — in Fort Knox than official numbers allow,” Ledbetter writes.

Others believe U.S. central bank vaults possess more gold than America’s been letting on to. On August 21, 2017, Bloomberg reported that U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin had paid a rare official visit to Fort Knox to in fact confirm the nation’s gold stash.

Is our financial inventory in tact? U.S. Treasury Secretary says it is, sort of.

“I assume the gold is still there,” Mnuchin, a former Hollywood producer, recently told an audience 40 miles north of the U.S. Bullion Depository. After the visit, the Secretary of the U.S. Treasury playfully reassured America that the treasure was still secure. But is it? What if Mnuchin is wrong? Or lying? And what if the U.S. really doesn’t have enough physical gold to back the greenback?

DO WE REALLY HAVE ANY GOLD?

Our President appears to believe in a gold standard but he has expressed doubts as to America’s status as a present legal custodian of the precious metal. “We used to have a very, very solid country because it was based on a gold standard,” Ralph Benko of Forbes cites President Trump in March 2016 as telling WMUR television station in New Hampshire, “but it would be tough to bring it back because we don’t have the gold. Other places have the gold.”

Other places have the gold and America does not? Could that be true?

As if doubling down on our president’s position regarding America’s gold possessions Benko cites Trump as telling GQ: “Bringing back the gold standard would be very hard to do, but boy, would it be wonderful. We’d have a standard on which to base our money.”

Which makes it all seem obvious that there’s no way the U.S. actually has the gold to back a new currency, right? Wrong, Ralph Benko writes, objecting strongly to the President’s position saying Trump has been misled to believe that “we don’t have the gold. Other places have the gold.” The United States, Germany, and the IMF have about as much gold as the rest of the world combined, Benko informs us, with America having well more than Germany and the IMF combined.

America claims to hold 8,133.5 tons of physical gold in its official reserves. Fifty-eight percent is reportedly held in Fort Knox, Kentucky, 20 percent at West Point in New York, 16 percent is said to be at the U.S. Mint in Denver, Colorado, and five percent is held at the New York Fed, an RT article says.

Singapore’s BullionStar precious metals expert Ronan Manly is quoted as telling RT that America’s actual gold reserves are likely much smaller.

“The entire story around the U.S. gold reserves is opaque and secretive. There has never been a full independent audit of the U.S. gold reserves, and the custodians of the gold, the U.S. Mint and the Federal Reserve of New York will not let anybody into the vaults to view the gold or to count it,” Manly told RT.

Besides, even if there were gold in American vaults there’s a very serious question as to the purity of the precious metal.

“Even the details that have been provided on the supposed U.S. gold holdings show that a majority of the gold bars are low purity and in weights that don’t conform to the industry standard ‘Good Delivery’ gold bar specifications,” Manly is quoted as telling RT.

This would make the gold un-tradable on the international market because of its low quality. There have been rumors that in the past the U.S. government has attempted to pay off debts with China using tungsten bars painted gold. China was reportedly deeply unimpressed with this payment method and returned the tainted bars back to the U.S.

WHERE WILL AMERICA GET GOLD TO BACK ITS NEW CURRENCY?

Like they say, if you’ve got it, show it. There’s a major question as to whether America actually does have the gold to back a new U.S. currency. If we don’t, where are we going to get it and how much will it cost?

President Trump has already told us that we don’t got it and someone else does. We know Russia has been buying up gold like there’s no tomorrow. China’s Royal Families and Elders are said to possess tremendous amounts of “unofficial” gold and other precious treasures from the ancient past. If we don’t have it in the U.S., would we get our gold from Asian countries in spite of the trade wars, billions of dollars in tariffs, South China Sea military standoff, and North Korea?

Or would we get our gold from Russia whom we’ve been targeting with the nuclear war drum roll for decades? Would Russian President Putin just forgive the United States for bringing the Communist Curtain down upon all Russian people in 1991, the destruction of the ruble, and the deaths of more than a million Russian people whose lives depended upon it, and just give the U.S. another 70 million metric tons of gold as the Russian Tsar reportedly did back in 1913 to help gold back the Federal Reserve Bank and the U.S. dollar?

There are rumors, myths, and stories that there are other greater hoards of golden wealth stashed out there in other countries belonging to someone that has yet to be legally established in the public eye. Might they lend a few million ounces of precious metals to Uncle Sam to help us in a time of need? Or not?

The rest of the world is turning to a gold standard. Our president and members of congress think gold backing of the U.S. currency would be a good idea. The Federal Reserve Bank and the Federal Reserve Note are breaking. The U.S. dollar and all markets tied to it are exploding into thin air on a global scale. Who’s going to give America its gold and save us? Who’s going to give our families a break?
