Some may view you blog as stirring the masses but for me it is a calming force. Not that I like what is happening but at least I know who, what and why. That’s better than freaking out and wondering if everyone else is insane.
This may seem naive but I use to think the SPY was too big to manipulate. Looking at Renko bars it’s easy to see computer programming and manipulation.


REPLY: I get a lot of information from sources around the world I was informed of the protests being organized in Germany to weeks ago. I am careful to cover such thinks only when they happen. Otherwise, yes, I could be accused of organizing them. That is not my purpose. It is to explain what is in fact unfolding and I try desperately to ensure I am not just spinning conspiracy theories. I have probably better sources than anyone, especially because all our clients are on the same mindset and we are all sharing what is happening around the world to better understand the global trends.

It is total nonsense that the Russian influenced the 2016 election. Government try always to influence elections. All the propaganda put out by the various news organizations is never questioned by their core readers because they are incapable of thinking for themselves. They BELIEVE what they want to BELIEVE. I have explain that the independent forces account for probably 10%. That can increase with exposing the lies but only when the BELIEVERS are confronted with the realization that they have been stupid sheep. That is the tipping point. That can be determined cyclically.

It is far better to understand what is unfolding, for it does bring calm. You can then watch it unfold. We are in the last 12 years period of this cycle. They are the equivalent to a long-term Panic Cycle. This is how the West falls. The British Empire fell. They people survived. When the Greek Empire of the Heroic period fell, the people migrated because of Climate Change. When Rome fell, it split into many pieces and the separatist movement led to  individual city states.

This is not Armageddon – the end of the world. This is just the end of the political system, and unfortunately, this Virus-Climate Change nonsense is deliberately trying to destroy the economy. They have no idea how to create the world they think needs to be created. They are ending Capitalism to be replaced with tyranny. They will not succeed, but this will come at the cost of blood in the streets which will vary depending upon where you are. The Midwest and the South will stand against California and New England – the stronghold of the Marxist believers.

In Florida, we had a “voluntary” stay at home. I would routinely go shopping and other than the mall and restaurants, most else was open. Police never pulled me over nor did they harass the people. The beach was supposed to be closed, but as long as you were walking the beach the police said that was fine. Of course, I live on a Private Beach so that was never an issue anyhow. In New England, police were nasty, ticketing people, arresting them, and generally acting as the right hand of ruthless illegal decrees.

So where you live will definitely be critical during the next 12 years.
