Gasp: The point of exhaustion, death, or completion.


Today (Thursday) the NIKKEI index is up some 401 points based upon what? This is a sham. The DOW index was up some 545 points yesterday and is up some 71 points as I write…based upon what? Is our economy growing? What I witness is a final ‘gasp’ (of hot deceptive air) which ends with collapse in a few days or weeks. Our metaphysical markets are not reflecting reality and this means that this last ‘gasp’ could be exhaustion and then death. Anyone with some discernment can derive this conclusion! Evidence is ubiquitous for those with some critical thinking skills!


Our real markets are now slowing rapidly. Retail and finance are laying off thousands (witness Mattress Firm, Sears, K-Mart, Pennys, Payless Shoes, Toys ‘R’ Us, Albertsons, Verizon, Movement Mortgage, and even Chase Mortgage). Liquidity is drying up slowly but relentlessly. All this is creating this last ‘gasp’ economy. BMW just reported a 24% drop in revenues for the third quarter. This is symptomatic of a drop in global liquidity and borrowing. The auto industry is now in trouble and this will magnify.


The events over in the Middle East also reveal that our markets are near collapse as sanctions are not working for America. Russia is bartering with Iran for their oil and then selling this oil to prior customers of Iran. This points to serious change and a slow down in trade as currencies get revalued (some are collapsing similar to the Venezuela Bolivar). Current inflation in Venezuela is reported at 1.3 million percent by the IMF. Locals report 488,000 percent. What a joke and sham for thinking investors.


As for real estate, Canada has a serious bubble real estate market. Britain and Australia have serious bubbles within their real estate markets. Sweden has a bubble in their real estate market. California, New York, and Chicago have serious bubbles in  real estate. I also see Phoenix and Tucson as bubble markets as apartments and single family homes continue to be built with few to no buyers. Move-in ready homes are growing in supply with few buyers arriving. This means that the slow down within real estate is real. Credit is drying up gradually and relentlessly.


Mortgage applications are down some 18% in most markets and this is just starting to affect all these bubble real estate markets. Higher interest rates are the culprit. The last ‘gasp’ is also happening in our electronic stock markets and this will end with a silent digital bang prior to year-end IMO. What happened over in Venezuela reveals the ‘nature’ of our metaphysical markets and this concept called ‘value’. It’s all a joke and a sham for anyone with some wisdom and discernment. Few, however, seek wisdom!


Today, computer digits operate within cyberspace and act as our money. When the digits crash they also vanish and disappear (as they have zero substance). This concept called ‘value’ (denominated in cyber symbols $$$$$) is really nothing but ‘hot’ metaphysical ‘air’. In reality, ‘value’ is inner/subjective/mental and without any outer existence. When these digits in cyberspace crash ($$$$$) all this ‘hot air’ value vanishes and disappears into nothingness. Confidence disappears and people are left with nothing to spend. The evidence is stark for those over in Venezuela.


I think our elites within our Central Banks recognize this metaphysical nature of ‘value’ and our ‘digit’ currencies ($$$$$). But they do not desire a CRASH of these ephemeral markets. To avoid a CRASH they continue to ‘pump’ up the index numbers (our stock exchanges) to keep investors deceived about reality. Investors do not want a CRASH to happen. So pumping up the electronic markets with more money digits works for a time period. All this is ephemeral, however, and temporary. The END is assured (similar to what we now witness over in Venezuela).


We are now reaching the point of a last ‘gasp’. Exhaustion is emerging and I sense this exhaustion among all my investor friends. The game can not continue much longer. The game is rigged, managed, and manipulated on a 24/7 basis. Deception is everywhere. Prices are distorted and illusionary and eventually the algorithms will sell these distorted assets into oblivion. Algorithms rule over all our computer driven markets. A crash could happen any day as our markets are now totally rigged and managed. In one hour America’s hegemony could end. The ‘dollar’ ($) could vanish from existence.


Prepare for a metaphysical digital collapse prior to year-end. I sense that a LAST GASP is emerging. The collapse will be silent as digits in cyberspace are units of nothing. We live with illegal cyber currencies (tender which is unconstitutional) which are mere units of our imagination. Personally, I would buy some tangible goods with most of my savings. Preppers have wisdom. Most investors live within their delusional imagination (with little to zero critical thinking). Historical silver and gold are good options and products (like food items) which can be traded in your community are also good options going forward.


Notice that Russia is bartering machinery for oil over in Iran (today) as sanctions restrict trade of Iranian oil. Barter is real trade. Our digital currencies are units of our imagination (units of nothing and without any VALUE). Mr. Trump’s continuing sanctions will force countries to barter as their currencies will become like the Venezuelan Bolivar (a unit of nothing, created from nothing, and living in cyberspace, our extended consciousness). What a joke and sham on people with critical thinking skills.


Think for yourself and prepare for this LAST GASP by year-end. After the last ‘gasp’ the game will continue to deteriorate for years. We have no real official solution which will work longer term. Our problem is systemic and historical. Our money is an illusion of the human mind. We now need a NEW ECONOMIC SYSTEM for the entire planet. I have written about this reality for years! We need a NEW MODEL based upon REALITY! Our current model is a total illusion/delusion/deception. That is my view! Think for yourself!


I am: Help me with a donation if you can. Money allows me to advance my agenda of education for the planet. Deception must end if progress is to continue! Enjoy the delusion for today! The END is assured!
