Kingdom Economics - One central bankster can counterfeit the euro to infinity (if he chooses). Money is now a virtual unit of nothing (a number/name) created from the MIND of a bankster! Amazing! The European Central Bank has been run by Mr. Mario Draghi these past eight years. His basic policy has been QE and negative interest rates. […]

Kingdom Economics - Let’s think about today’s financial world and compare it to our prior world of physical monies. For most of my life I lived with physical monies (paper notes and metal coins). I also viewed gold coins and silver coins as money. But today, my financial world is inside my ‘head’. Everything has changed (mostly since […]

Kingdom Economics - The precious metals prices are obviously slammed on a regular basis by someone. This has been occurring for over 8 years. All this happens because select elites do not want investors to desire these safe havens for their security. So why this slam? Today, the slam occurred around 1 p.m. and the silver price lost 4% […]

Kingdom Economics - Yesterday and today our digital Dow Index was pumped up some 200 points (Wednesday) and some 300 points (Thursday). This was done at the opening of the market. I have noticed this situation for years (it happens on a regular basis). Some traders (prior to opening of the markets) will pump up (and sometimes down) the […]

Kingdom Economics - The Ultimate battle:  Political Power vs. Individual Freedom! The situation over in Hong Kong reveals this ultimate battle of mankind. Political power vs. Individual freedom is this ultimate battle. Today’s Wall Street Journal reveals the tension over in Hong Kong between the political leaders (Xi Jinping and Carrie Lam) who desire to control the freedom […]

Kingdom Economics -   According to our central planners (banksters), we live in a multi-polar world. This means that the U.S. dollar needs to be replaced with a global digital currency (a multi-polar currency). This was the thinking of Mark Carney at the recent Jackson Hole meeting. We now must wait to see what happens with this idea which […]

Kingdom Economics - That which I have been expecting is starting to happen. Mr. Mark Carney, Bank of England, announced that a virtual/digital currency for the world is coming (now in the planning stages). His words are that a multi-polar world needs a new virtual currency for trade. The dollar creates issues for many countries and spillover effects are […]

Kingdom Economics - My Wall Street Journal is saying that RV sales are down some 20% and Nordstrom sales are down some 45%.  Trump changes the focus to Greenland (interesting). These items point to a coming RECESSION IMO. This coming recession could have already started. We should know more in the next few weeks. My sense is that […]

Kingdom Economics - After watching the demonstrations over in Hong Kong for the past two weeks my question is ‘what do these demonstrators really want’? I think I know! The word is ‘Freedom’. The demonstrators desire continuing freedom from a dictatorial hierarchy in the mainland who desire to control their behavior. It is natural for the young in Hong […]

Kingdom Economics - Consumer sentiment is down from prior highs, rental housing is down from prior highs, China is slowing, Europe is slowing, Argentina is crashing, Venezuela is in a depression, Iran/Russia/Turkey are suffering from U.S. sanctions. The markets are gradually imploding as events continue to play out globally. The moral climate is deteriorating with this Epstein saga. I […]

Kingdom Economics - Today’s article in the Wall Street Journal entitled “Modern Monetary Theory Is Ancient” by Jason De Sena Trennart reviews the theory as follows: 1. The government of the USA has a monopoly power over the dollar. Recognize this favorable factor. 2. Governments do not need to tax and then borrow. Governments should spend first to guarantee full […]

Kingdom Economics - The digital stock exchange over in Argentina is crashing and their currency is declining.The Peso may soon go into oblivion like the Venezuelan Bolivar. This currency could set the tone for a number of weaker currencies as investors seek safe havens and get out of emerging market assets. I sense that a correction in all […]

Kingdom Economics - A mere word from our leader, Mr. Trump, on the issue of tariffs creates huge cyber market manipulations (both up and down). Silver was slammed today and our cyber stock markets were pumped UP (as I write). It all happens at the New York Fed and traders on the 8th and 9th floors in this building. […]

Kingdom Economics -  Is this concept called ‘money’ an illusion? Is it a mere symbol within my consciousness? Does this item called money ‘exist’? What is this item which I call the ‘dollar’? Is it fake, funny money, an illusion or what? Let’s think about this concept (idea) called money and especially this currency called ‘dollar’ for this missive. […]

Kingdom Economics - Let’s start with a definition of this concept (word) called VIRTUAL: Virtual:  COMPUTING not physically existing as such but made by software to appear to do so. Virtual:  an artificial environment which is experienced through sensory stimuli (such as sights and math data) provided by a computer and in which one’s actions partially determine what […]

Kingdom Economics - Past Fed administrators desire FED independence to further control the American economy. Do the American people understand this institution? The Donald wants a pumped up economy, lower interest rates, more counterfeiting of the virtual dollar, and more central planning. Is this what America needs going forward? Let’s talk about this organization called The FED! Two […]

Kingdom Economics - We now live with VIRTUAL currencies…mere reflections of a real bank note. As a bankster I can create ‘virtual’ money from my thinking. The above image in the mirror is a virtual image (an illusion). Today, our money is an ‘illusion’ as it is ‘virtual’. Banksters type an image ($1.00) into the computer screen and call […]

Kingdom Economics - A digital stock exchange index can go UP or DOWN even while the general goods economy does the opposite. This is happening in Venezuela as I write this missive. This is crucial for everyone to understand. My clubhouse friends now understand! Digital stock exchanges use virtual monies to measure value! This means that the exchange […]

Kingdom Economics - I now trade and pay with a smart phone using cyber digits as my money! What do you use to buy, sell, and trade? What does all this mean? Today the Dow Index dropped some 500 points in a matter of minutes. This happened due to comments by Mr. Trump regarding tariffs on Chinese goods. […]

Kingdom Economics - Today, the U.S. Fed (via Chairman Powell) dropped the FFR by 0.25%. This was a meaningless action IMO which reveals the impotence of this institution. Going forward, I expect a further decease in this FFR (federal funds rate) in the September meeting. The next meeting is scheduled for September 17-18 and I now expect a 0.50% […]

Kingdom Economics - Let’s think on this concept called ‘consciousness’. This concept is key to understanding money, finance, debt, and investments. It’s my consciousness where my money is stored (virtually). Virtual money is what we use today for our monetary transactions. See here for all this virtual money living within our consciousness:   http://www.usdebtclock.org   When I say the […]

Kingdom Economics - http://www.usdebtclock.org Think about this situation called debt and deficits. America’s trade deficit is now over $886 billion (up some 34 fold since 1980). America’s national debt is now some $22.5 trillion (up some 25 fold since 1980). It appears that America can live off the world system of production indefinitely. Or is there a limit to […]

Kingdom Economics - Fed speak is often difficult to interpret. The testimony today of our Fed Chairman, Mr. Powell, suggests that he is uncertain about where our economy is going. He claims the economy is ‘strong’ (his words) but the crosscurrents are also present. What does this mean in layman’s language? Let’s decipher the jargon!   I would suggest […]

Kingdom Economics - I now live with cyber money, virtual money, digital money, imaginary money, fake money.Are you aware of what has evolved since 2008? Our banking system and our financial system has gone virtual and all our money now lives in THE CLOUD. I have no real physical money any longer. I transact my financial affairs in […]

Kingdom Economics - The celebration of our Independence from Great Britain (1776 and after) created a SYSTEM which espoused the above ideals but we have not realized these ideals. It is now some 243 years since the founding of our SYSTEM (called a Republic) and the people are now more enslaved than when the founding documents were written. Celebrating […]
