Today, I will address a number of issues to clear the air on what is happening around our planet. Let’s cover each issue briefly for your consideration:

  1. The elections over in Sweden occur on September 9 (16 days from now). What is likely to happen? My perception is that a chaotic situation will develop as none of the 8+ parties will emerge as dominant. The Social Democrats might get around 22%, the Euroskeptic Swedish Democrats around 22%, and the Moderates around 20%. The September elections will see all 349 seats in the Swedish parliament – named the Riksdag – up for reallocation. So who will rule Sweden after September 9? Who can put together a coalition of 50+ % (175 seats in the Parliament) to rule? My sense is that NONE of the parties can do this. So chaos will result if this happens. Sweden could experience a situation where no single ruler gets support of the majority. This would surely lead to chaos within the political system of Sweden. Watch the results and we all can witness the chaos as it develops (after Sept. 9)!
  2. Trump’s financial gatekeeper (see WSJ page 1, August 25-26) for his Trump Organization was given immunity by the Federal Authorities in New York. This person, by the name of Mr. Weisselberg, is aware that Mr. Trump had his personal attorney, Mr. Cohen, reimbursed for the $130,000 paid to Stormy Daniels for her remaining silent to their prior sexual affair. All this happened prior to the election of 2016 and this could lead to the impeachment of the Donald at some point (his character is falling apart daily…so it seems). Also, granted immunity was Mr. David Pecker, of the National Enquirer. Mr. Pecker is reported to have protected the Donald with respect to his public image (for years). Where does all this lead? It leads to more political chaos and eventually our cyber/digital stock markets will respond to all this corruption.
  3. Looks like Arizona, Senator, John McCain has only days or weeks left on this planet. His brain cancer battle is advancing and he is now going to avoid any further treatment for the malady. This means more political chaos (for Americans) as this event happens. Who will get selected to replace this icon?
  4. Our stock indexes continue to be elevated to record heights. The S & P index has reached a new record high, the Russell 2000 crossed an all-time high last week, the NASDAQ Composite has racked up 26 new records this year (2018). What is happening? Our Central Banks have continued to pump-up these indexes with their trading activity. Yes, our Central Banks now trade our corrupt digital markets. All this corruption is temporarily allowing consumers and investors to think that all is well economically. In reality, however, all is not well. The markets are in bubbles and a prick of one major market will send the house of cards to the graveyard. Watch (the cyber markets on your Smart phone) as the precise date (the crash) is uncertain. The collapse, however, is certain IMO (at some point).
  5. Mr. Trump’s tweets on the issue of Fed interest rates reveals his uncertainty about a continuing upward trend in our markets. The Donald says that if he were impeached (quite likely now) the Donald says “I think the stock markets will crash” (Barron’s, August 27, 2018). I agree! It takes just a change in trader sentiment for the house of cards to come tumbling down. The entire digital economy is built on ‘sand’ (emotion and deception). Digital money is technically non-physical and illegal when we think of our constitution and our system of legal tender laws. Get out of digital money and into physical items (like silver coins and gold coins).
  6. Cryptocurrencies are now crashing daily. Bitcoin Cash (a creation from a fork in Bitcoin) has crashed some 88% from its peak of $4355.62. Bitcoin has crashed some 68% from its peak of $20,089 in December, 2017. I predicted this crash after our authorities created a short sell option for investors. Naked shorts can drive these virtual (imaginary) currencies to zero (if our corrupt authorities desire this result). Get out of crypto’s and into a physical item like silver coins and gold coins. Ignor the price (which is suppressed artificially by our Plunge Protection people). Buy at these suppressed prices and stock-pile a supply for later barter and/or exchange. When traveling to other nations which have these virtual/imaginary currencies you may need something with historical credibility. All money is now mostly digital/virtual. Virtual means IMAGINARY! Think on this reality! Virtual currencies (like our dollar, euro, yen, etc. can go to ZERO). Get out now with some of your $$$$$$$. A Reset is likely in the very near future!
  7. The trends are now dire for a continuation of prosperity and progress. Our System is the problem. Our money is now merely a ‘bookkeeping entry’. Dollars are used to balance the accounting books but the units are imaginary/virtual (without substance). Banksters create these bookkeeping units by merely thinking up numbers and setting up new computer accounts. All this is technically illegal and unconstitutional. We live with criminal money and criminal administration of our money. See Article I, Section 8 and 10 for constitutional money. It’s not the digits which our Central Banks create in the $trillions. Real constitutional money is PHYSICAL (silver/gold).

 

Wake-up to all the financial corruption as all this corruption will eventually lead to chaos. Political chaos is starting to happen in Sweden, America, Iran, Turkey, Syria, Russia, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Greece, Yemen, Libya, Iraq, Brazil, Argentina, and soon in many more nations. The digital house of cards (money system) is our problem. Imaginary money can not work longer-term. Think of our system as corrupt, inner, and an ILLUSION. Watch as it starts its descent from bubble levels to eventual inner hot air (nothing). What is built upon ‘sand’ can not survive a real financial storm. Think for  yourself to discern these realities!
