Nov 13, 2016 The Lord answered Christians prayers but Trump is not our saviour

with 5 comments

The Lord Jesus Christ answered the prayers of Christians who interceded in favor of Trump to win the election. As this wonderful article below clearly states God answered our prayers and prevented Mrs. Clinton from winning the presidency.

It is clear that plan of the evil one has been thwarted, but it would be naive to think that the prophetic word of God will not be fulfilled 100% as written.

The word tells us that these are the end times and that the Apocalypse is around the corner, so read the article below and continue praying for the intervention and protection of God for the believers and the Nation of Israel as things are going to get pretty rough in the days ahead.

Still Not Our Savior

By Donna Wasson


“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” 1 John 2:15-16 (KJV)

“It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.” Psalm 118:8 (KJV)

“Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.” Jeremiah 17:5, 7 (KJV) (Emphasis mine)

Well, the fat lady sang and Jezebel was cast down from her high tower, spattering blood and guts all over the pavement for the dogs to lick up. Excuse me for mixing metaphors here, but you get the idea. Poor Hildabeast. The brass ring she’s worked 40+ years to grasp was at her fingertips, only to be snatched away by a neophyte with a spray-on tan and a bad comb over. Just think of all the animals sacrificed and infant blood consumed during those pot-luck, Spirit Cooking sessions she attended, in her quest for power; all wasted.

My son Ben gets the prize for the best description of the shocking upset of Donald Trump winning the presidency: “Well, now Hillary Clinton knows firsthand what it feels like to be aborted right before birth!” That’s my boy!

There are a few things about this election that the Lord wants me to point out to you, dear readers. First of all, there is no doubt the defeat of Hillary Clinton was a bona fide miracle resulting from Almighty God’s gracious answer to the pleas of His people all over the world. Do not forget that, and be sure to give glory to the One to whom glory is due.

According to WND, believers all across the world were corporately praying throughout election night, interceding, repenting, and begging for the mercy of God on this nation. The timing of when the election results began to turn around is astounding! Simply astounding. Our God reigns and DOES hear the prayers of His people. Please take a couple of minutes to read the following article.

http://mobile.wnd.com/2016/11/signs-of-divine-intervention-in-trump-victory/

However, despite this unfamiliar, delightful tinge of hope in the air, Trump is STILL not our savior. He is only one man, up against a House of Representatives and Senate filled with corrupt, globalist elite who live to engineer methods of lining their pockets through backroom deals, and who schemed to ensure he wasn’t elected. You’re deluding yourself if you think Mr. Trump will be able to keep 1/10th of his promises, even with a Republican congress. He plans to upset their applecart, “drain the swamp” so to speak, and they aren’t about to allow that!

He’s also going to have to continue to deal with a very angry liberal mainstream media who hates his guts, and will go to any length to derail his presidency before it even gets started.

Add to all that the thousands of liberals currently rioting and sniveling in their tai-soy, sugar-free lattes, while damaging the vehicles and businesses of hardworking Americans, all because things didn’t go their way for once. These people have nothing better to do than post vitriolic hatred on their Facebook pages and tweet whining appeals for someone to assassinate a man who was fairly elected, which is highly illegal. I hope the FBI identifies these panicking snowflakes and arrests them for making terroristic threats, just like they did when Obama was first elected!

I must admit, I remember the weeks-long demonstrations, riots and pillaging conservatives committed after both of Obama’s elections. Oh, wait…that’s right. There were no demonstrations or acting out! Conservatives tend to respect the rule of law and property rights. You know, the characteristics of grown-ups?

I’ve stated before that I greatly fear for this man’s life and that of his family. IF he lives to be sworn into office on January 20, 2017, the uphill battle he’ll be forced to wage during his tenure will make his election campaign look like a carefree vacation. I don’t know how anyone can possibly cope with that much resistance and subterfuge. Pray for him and for Vice President Pence. The enemy and minions of hell are gnashing their teeth in rage right now.

As you probably already know, these demonstrations against Trump’s election are being organized and funded by everyone’s favorite Nazi collaborator, George Soros. His anarchic organizations, MoveOn.org and BlackLivesMatter.org are behind bussing in and paying thousands of rioters to blend in with peaceful demonstrators to cause chaos. That’s pretty much all Soros knows how to do. Foment chaos and destruction. Dude really needs to get an honest job! So, what you’re seeing on your TV news is in large part, fake rage.

There are several scenarios that can result from this.

The parents of the millennials who are wasting time marching, could threaten to lock them out of the house if they don’t knock it off. That would be nice, but I don’t see that happening. The vast majority of the parents of these self-absorbed morons are left over, drug-addled hippies of the late 60’s and early 70’s, and are just as upset Hillary didn’t win. After all, they were really counting on that free college tuition for their little darlings!

I find it telling that Obama and Hillary aren’t speaking out against these rioters. Hmm, kinda makes me wonder if they’re colluding with Soros to allow destruction by their obvious silence. If either one of them were a true leader of any worth, they would make a joint appearance and tell the sensitive little crybaby brats to go home, and prepare to get one of the jobs that will hopefully come back to this country. No more sleeping in till noon.

If Obama and/or Hillary refuse to enter the fray and call for calm, you can lay the destruction at their feet. Will Obama allow and even tacitly encourage the riots to continue and spread, leading to a declaration of martial law? I put nothing past the man. He has but little time left to finish off America.

Then, there’s NATO, who continues to provoke and aggravate Russia by their build-up of military assets and hardware at Russia’s border. Contrary to mainstream media reports, WE are the aggressors in this frosty relationship. Putin is no angel, but he has demonstrated incredible restraint in the face of being bullied, threatened, maligned and nonsensically blamed for interference in America’s business.

We have NO right trying to depose Assad. NONE. Just like we had no business going into the Middle East to bomb and foment regime change in Egypt, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. What the Bush and Obama administrations have done over there is ALL about the oil, folks. It’s all about a pipeline the globalists want to run through Turkey to supply Europe and cut Russia out of its main source of income. It’s not about trying to spread democracy. What a load! No, it’s all about greed, pure and simple. Innocent civilian deaths are just a part of doing business to these wicked leaders.

Will Obama and NATO continue to flick the ear of Putin, daring him to launch an attack in defense of his country, or that of his ally, Syria? The industrial military complex President Eisenhower warned us about in his final address to the American people, love nothing more than war and carnage. There’s lots of money to be made in the death and destruction of others, and they are salivating at the prospect of WWIII.

That’s one reason the Powers That Be hate Trump so much. He is a reasonable man who’s not interested in ruling the world. He’s genuinely interested in making deals with other countries that are in America’s favor, but which also benefit the other party. Oh, that this were a different era…I honestly believe he’s got the potential to be one of the greatest presidents this country has ever seen.

But, this time in history is NOT normal by any stretch. These are still the last days, people. God may have been merciful to block Hillary from office, but that doesn’t mean America will be turned around. Happy days are NOT here again. Sorry. Like I said, Donald Trump is only one man. Just a flawed human being up against impossible odds and increasing powers of darkness over this land.

You want to know why America will not be restored? Because we don’t deserve to be restored! That’s why! There is little to no repentance for our national sins and abominations against the God of our fathers. As clearly demonstrated from the election results, nearly half of the citizens of this country have been infected with Marxist/Communist ideology from our schools and universities over the last 50 years. The rest still cling to the Constitution, and at least have some respect for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, even if they don’t consider Jesus to be their Lord and Savior.

Then, there are the Christians-in-name-only, who warm the cushy pews of the mega-churches and cathedrals, listening to a different gospel every week consisting of prosperity doctrine, or “loving” acceptance of all sorts of sinful lifestyles. You really believe God will hear to their prayers, when even THEY don’t see their need to repent and return to the basic tenets of the Bible?!

Do you realize how very small the remnant of true, God-fearing, Christ loving, cross-dragging Christians there are in America? Think about it. Seriously. It’s a pretty small club. That’s because membership is so expensive. It costs us everything to join and remain in good standing. To be considered, all hopes, dreams, desires, plans, flagrant sins, and ambitions have to be surrendered at the foot of the cross. Not only that, this commitment must be continually pondered and updated. We no longer live for ourselves or earthly things; our goal is to further the Kingdom of our Jesus.

It’s a mighty tough row to hoe, and most people just don’t want to live their lives like that. It ain’t fun sometimes! But, it is and will be well worth it in the end.

Were America filled with true Christians as described above, I do believe there would be great hope to restore this nation to its former glory and standing in the world as a shining beacon on a hill. But it’s not filled with believers like that. Not even close. Read the book of Jonah and see for yourself what it took to avert the judgment and destruction of Nineveh. Every single being with a heartbeat from royalty to the beasts of burden, was commanded by the King to fast and repent in sackcloth and ashes, for the sins of the city, and to beg God for mercy.

Can you see that happening in America? Did it happen after 9/11? Nope. That was a stern warning shot across the bow, but the churches were only filled for about 3 weeks until everyone returned to business as usual. Since 9/11, we’ve overthrown the historical basic unit of human families, traditional marriage between one man and one woman, in favor of sodomite unions.

Hillary Clinton and her crowd have no problem openly admitting their belief that murdering a full-term, viable baby, partially hanging out of the birth canal, is perfectly acceptable in their eyes. What’s the big deal? After all, in her words, the unborn have no rights. Tell that to the Creator, Hildabeast!

Nope, people, I’m sorry. America will not be turned around, nor restored. Nor, should it be. Why would anyone believe we garner God’s favor or deserve His blessing? Read your Bibles and pay attention to how He dealt with rebellious, wicked nations. He warned and warned the people through prophets; He allowed their crops/livestock to be destroyed; He sent destructive storms and disease to get their attention; when all else failed, He delivered them into the hands of their enemies. EVEN ISRAEL, His chosen people, were taken captive by the Assyrians and the Babylonians.

What in the world makes us think He won’t deal the same way with us?  In my ever so humble opinion, the Lord mercifully answered the plea of His people to keep Hillary Clinton out of office. This might possibly make life in the United States a little easier until judgment comes. Perhaps it will be worse. Perhaps Trump will end up being our worst nightmare, although I’ll admit it’s unlikely anyone could top the Hildabeast in that category.

All I know is America remains unrepentant and rebellious against a very Holy God. He’s watching right now to see who will put their faith and trust in the man, Donald Trump, to provide for and protect their future, and who will continue to look to Him for the same. I am delighted and relieved that Hillary didn’t win, but one fact remains:

Donald Trump is STILL not our Savior.

Nov 8, 2016 “Vote”. Please read this before voting!

with 2 comments

The last two elections the USA voted in the most destructive and evil man to serve in the office of president.

The evil and corruption seen in this administration is beyond words to describe. It can only be stopped by voting for a candidate that is not Hillary Clinton.

The two articles below are excellent in their thorough understanding the Biblical principals governing the selection of leaders.

Brace for Impact

By Patrick Wyett

 

I write this just before the scheduled election of 2016, so I don’t know the outcome as yet. God does and so might you by the time you read this. From my spot in time, I offer a few observations. It will be either Hillary or Donald Trump for president. There are third party options but none are relevant as to the outcome except to pull votes away from the only two contenders. Some will not vote, allowing those who do to decide things.

Such a tact does not absolve one of responsibility in this matter, rather, it’s an abdication of duty as a citizen of this nation. To my fellow citizens, you are blessed to have the opportunity to vote, to live in a nation where our representatives and leaders seek such assent from the consent of the governed. In all nations throughout most of history, the concept of a person getting to cast a legitimate vote to decide the course of government was unthinkable. God has given us the right to do so here, a right wrested from tyranny at the price of patriot’s blood.

For conscience’ sake, vote. Honor the God of heaven with your vote and seek His discernment in doing so.

Some say there’s no real choice for president. I beg to differ. Donald Trump wasn’t my first, second, third or even fourth choice in the primary. But now he’s the only choice to defeat the demonstrably most vile, corrupt, criminal liar in the history of American politics. That’s a pretty high bar considering the last eight years.

As a side note, Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Hussein Obama, has been out campaigning on behalf of Hillary. What a sign of our wicked times; the most unqualified person to ever run for president supporting the most disqualified person to ever run for president. There is a certain consistency with evil.

“Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.” (Matthew 7:16-18)

What of the fruits of the candidates? Donald Trump is pro-life, pro-gun, wants to secure our borders from illegal invasion and seeks to put a halt to the insane importation of Islam into our nation and remove its destructive influence from government. More than words, he has surrounded himself with good people such as Mike Pence, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson and many others. Ted Cruz supports Mr. Trump.

Donald Trump has said, “I will protect (Christians)… because we’re not being protected,” and “a Trump administration, our Christian heritage will be cherished, protected, defended like you’ve never seen before.” Protected from the likes of the Clinton crime syndicate.

Speaking of which…

Hillary Clinton and the words “corrupt” and “evil” have become synonymous. Her fruit is well-known. She is a staunch supporter of any and all abortion, up to the birth of the child. She defends the baby slaughterhouses of Planned Parenthood and idolizes its racist founder, Margaret Sanger.

Hillary’s vocally anti-gun, not surprising from a Saul Alinsky Marxist. Learn from history or be victim to its repetition. The horrific government-sponsored massacres of the 20th century were preceded by civilian disarmaments.

The defenseless are so much easier to slaughter than the armed.

Hillary openly advocates for open borders (the destruction of our nation’s sovereignty), wants to greatly expand the importation of Muslims into the country, and champions the homosexual agenda.

I detailed her email-related treason and criminality in my last article, “As the World Burns.” More recent revelations have uncovered the sickening pedophile activities that both she and Bill have participated in. The information out there if you have the stomach for it. Key words “Jeffrey Epstein” and “Orgy Island.”

Read the first chapter of Romans. Hillary, by biblical definition, is a hater of God. And by simple human observation, a hater of America and of humanity. Her profane tirades are legion, one in particular related to me by a friend who personally endured one.

Hatred gushes from her mouth like an overflowing toilet without a shut-off valve.

Despite these things, I hear those claiming to be Christians supporting Hillary. This is a grave contradiction between word and action.

Jesus said:

“Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter (Holy Spirit) will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove (reprimand) the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.” (John 16:7-8)

Every true Christian has the Holy Spirit indwelling in us, giving us discernment of good and evil. This is not a gift of the Holy Spirit, it is an essential function. Those lacking discernment about Hillary Clinton have not the Holy Spirit within them. One can’t be in open rebellion against God and have a Christian faith. The two are diametrically opposed. We are to repent of evil, not vote for it.

I realize the gravity and implications of what I just wrote.

Yet I write the hard things that must be said to warn deceived people of the judgment that they face. If party or personal ideology take priority over God’s moral absolutes, these things are your god, not the one true God of the Bible.

“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” (Matthew 6:24)

Mammon usually in context refers to money but can apply to anything worldly and not of God. Dear ones, no true Christian can support Hillary Clinton. Yes I know of Donald Trump’s past. It’s his future that intrigues me. As I’ve detailed, he’s the best option. The last perfect man in an election lost to Barabbas 2000 years ago. Through His loss, we as Christians have won eternal life.

As for now, we have an obligation and duty to our faith and country. What’s that look like?

Is there a global conspiracy to rule the world?

Revelation certainly confirms this as Satan’s plan. Of interest, you’d have to be 58 years old or older to have voted in a presidential election year that hasn’t featured a Bush or Clinton running for president or vice-president. 1976 was the last time this wasn’t the case, save 2012 in which Hillary was secretary of state, personally enriching herself by selling influence to finance her current run at the White House.

1980; George HW Bush ran for president in the primary, lost to Ronald Reagan and became his running mate. 1984; George HW Bush, vice-president. 1988; George HW Bush, president. 1992; George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, president. 1996; Bill Clinton, president. 2000; George W. Bush, president. 2004; George W. Bush, president. 2008; Hillary Clinton, president (lost in primary). 2012, Hillary Clinton part of the Obama team. 2016; Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, president.

Random coincidence?

Will Trump win? Despite the desperately skewed polls, I believe he has a decisive lead in the popular vote. In our lawless government, that might not be enough.

My feeling is the only way that Hillary can win is by massive voter fraud, the likes of which we’re already seeing and has been verified as a core campaign strategy throughout Hillary’s criminal run. Just ask Bernie. Or Donald.

Look up videos from Project Veritas for an inside look and admission of such tactics, going back many years. Let me give you a brief preview.

Scott Foval, a point man for Hillary and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for such things as inciting violence at Trump rallies and facilitating voter fraud, was fired from his position only after the Project Veritas videos came out. Please note, he wasn’t fired because he did these things.

These actions are what he was paid to do. Such illegal, immoral and unethical conduct was his job duty as assigned by Hillary and the DNC with their full knowledge and oversight.

Foval was fired only because he got caught admitting to what he was doing and who was directing him. You think he might still be doing the same things, just getting paid by a different route? I bet he keeps his mouth shut from now on.

Whoever wins, there will be blowback. This nation is divided much as it was prior to the Civil War. In some ways more so.

Much can still happen between now, the election and the inauguration of a new president. It will not be a smooth transition, if indeed there is one.

Theories abound as to what is yet to come. Take comfort in knowing that nothing surprises God. He never scratches His head and blurts, “Wow, I never saw that coming.” All-knowing, omniscient, omnipresent, all-powerful, and invincible. Loving and merciful, yet righteous and holy. Those who execute evil plans play right into God’s master plan.

Sin will be judged, evil will be vanquished. Fear not for the things that must yet come. Heaven awaits.

Don’t place your faith in election outcomes, put your faith, all of it, in Jesus. The King is coming!

But until then, until you see Him with your own eyes, be about your Father’s business. Light and salt my friends. As Patrick Henry said, “The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.”

Elections are barometers in the battle of good versus evil. Let us see how November 8 is decided.

That said, brace for impact.

Patrick

Choosing a Leader

By Nathele Graham

 

The Bible is rich with examples of men who were chosen by God for leadership. All of these men surprise us because none were perfect. For Instance, Moses was a very reluctant leader. He was born to Hebrew parents, but raised in Pharaoh’s court.

One day Moses saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew and he killed the Egyptian. Because of this he fled to the land of Midian, where he lived for forty years. He may have run from Pharaoh, but he could not run from God.

Neither can we. No matter what sin we commit, God knows and you cannot hide from Him. God knew where Moses was and when the time was right He chose to use Moses to lead the Hebrews out of captivity. Did Moses enthusiastically agree? No. Moses had lots of excuses why he couldn’t do the job for which he was chosen.

“And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:11)

Moses didn’t see himself as worthy of this task God asked him to do. God kept talking to Moses and urging him to obey.

“And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath not appeared unto thee.” Exodus 4:1. Moses kept coming up with excuses, but God saw leadership qualities in him.

“And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.” Exodus 4:10.

Moses just kept coming up with excuses, until finally he asked God to send anyone but him.

“And he said, ‘O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send.’” (Exodus 4:13.) This verse reads clearer in other translations, such as the NET Bible: “But Moses said, ‘O my Lord, please send anyone else whom you wish to send!’”

God was determined that it was Moses who needed to go to Pharaoh, and eventually Moses went. The rest is history. The Hebrews were set free and eventually did make it to the Promised Land, although Moses wasn’t allowed to enter.

“And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.” (Numbers 20:12)

Today there is much fighting over possession of that land, but God gave it to Israel forever. They will have full possession of it one day.

King David was a great leader. The prophet Samuel was sent by God to Bethlehem to anoint the one who would replace Saul as king of Israel. He went to Jesse, who had eight sons; one of those sons would be chosen. The seven sons who were the obvious choice from man’s perspective were brought before Samuel.

“But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)

When choosing leaders, that’s an important point: Look at their character. The Lord had chosen the youngest son, David, to eventually become king. The time David spent tending his sheep had been training for leadership and for battle. Sheep are unruly and tend to wander. David had to be watchful and alert to protect his flock from predators. He honed his skills for battle and did in fact kill a lion and a bear who were after the sheep.

David also learned to play beautiful music and write Psalms; he loved the Lord with all his heart. Because he was very young when Samuel anointed him, David didn’t take the throne until after King Saul died. It wasn’t a smooth rise to the throne. When King Saul had bad moods he would try to kill him, but David would play music to soothe Saul’s troubled soul.

After David became king he proved himself to be a powerful leader. He won many battles with enemies of Israel, but his life was still filled with turmoil. Even though he loved God he still had failures. Bad decisions in his personal life caused him to fall deep into sin. Lust for Bathsheba and her subsequent pregnancy prompted him to put her soldier husband on the frontlines of battle where he was sure to be killed.

Uriah’s death allowed David to marry Bathsheba, but the child she gave birth to died. When the prophet Nathan brought David’s sin to his attention, David didn’t lie to cover up his sin or try to make his sin seem right, but he was brokenhearted. He cried out to God and asked for forgiveness.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10).

If only we had leaders like David today, our nation would be much healthier. Today we see scandal after scandal being covered up, excused, and ignored. Voters don’t seem to expect integrity from candidates anymore.

Moving into the New Testament we can see the transformation of Peter. He was rash and always seemed to say the wrong thing. He had no tact! Others may have thought the same thoughts, but Peter blurted it right out. Peter was part of Christ’s “inner circle” and was present at the transfiguration, and when Jairus’ daughter was brought back to life, and at the Olivet Discourse. Still, Peter isn’t the disciple you would think would be the one to rise to leadership. He followed Jesus for three years, but hid in fear during the crucifixion, and even denied knowing Jesus.

Our Lord knew Peter’s capabilities and after the resurrection Jesus made sure that Peter was restored to fellowship. Peter was broken over his actions and his fears. Jesus told Peter what he was called to do, and from then on Peter assumed leadership.

“He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me: And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.” John 21:17.

No, Peter was never a pope, but he was an obedient servant who loved Jesus and came to serve him in spite of his weaknesses. It was Peter who stood up on the day of Pentecost and gave an eloquent sermon in which he spoke deep truth and quoted Scripture with authority.

“Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know.” (Acts 2:22)

Thus began the sermon. Peter was no longer hiding in fear, but boldly speaking about Jesus. He ended by saying, “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.” (Acts 2:36)

After hearing Peter speak, 3,000 people were convicted of their sin and came to salvation. God knew what great things Peter would accomplish… He saw what he could be, not what he was. A strong leader is one who allows himself to be changed by Jesus, and Peter is a prime example.

On the other hand there are evil leaders. A pair that stands out in Old Testament history is King Ahab and his wife Jezebel. These two brought pagan worship to new heights and, if possible, Jezebel was worse than her husband. She even arranged the murder of Naboth who owned a small vineyard but Ahab wanted it. Naboth loved his land and refused to sell it to Ahab, and Ahab went into a pout. Jezebel said not to worry, that she would get the vineyard for Ahab.

“So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, and sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters unto the elders and to the nobles that were in his city, dwelling with Naboth.” (1 Kings 21:8)

Today we might see this as an email scandal. The letters directed that false witnesses were to lie about Naboth and claim he committed blasphemy. Jezebel’s orders were carried out and Naboth was stoned to death. Ahab and Jezebel are not unlike some politicians today.

“But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up. And he did very abominably in following idols, according to all things as did the Amorites, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.” (1 Kings 21:25-26)

They were an evil pair. Given a choice, no nation should choose anyone similar to Ahab or Jezebel to lead them.

Moses, David, Peter, and others, were chosen to do God’s work on earth. Moses, a Hebrew, was raised and educated by Egyptians in Pharaoh’s court. This gave him understanding of the Egyptian ways. He was able to approach Pharaoh several times and eventually lead the Hebrews out of captivity.

David was a shepherd boy who practiced skills of defense while watching the sheep. He killed a lion and a bear while protecting his flock, so he had no fear when facing Goliath. All of this honed him to be king over Israel. Peter was brash, but Jesus saw the diamond in the rough and worked with Peter’s quirks in order for Peter to become a trusted leader.

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” (Psalm 1:1-2)

A leader in any walk of life is stronger if he obeys God, especially if that leader intends to run a nation. When electing a leader find out if that person embraces ungodly practices of abortion or homosexuality or murder. Spurn them if they do. Does the person support Israel? Do they serve a god or God Almighty

These are important questions along with moral questions of lies and consistent scandals concerning associations with proven rape and other sexual improprieties. Never vote for a person who resembles Jezebel or Ahab.

Nations are a business. Money comes in and goes out. Negotiations must be made in order to encourage trade among other nations and to forestall war. America is no different. Over the last 8 years our national debt has soared, pagan practices have been embraced, and anyone who believes in God Almighty is considered a hater. And our nation is less safe than ever before.

America will soon vote for the next president and Christians must vote. Base your vote on God’s principles. Do we want Jezebel running this nation? We have one candidate who, like Moses and David, seems to have been in leadership training throughout his life. Like Peter he is outspoken, but is a born leader. The other candidate bears more of a resemblance to Jezebel who aided and abetted her husband, Ahab in pure evil. Neither candidate is perfect, but brothers and sisters, vote wisely.

There will be no perfect leader on this earth until Jesus Christ returns and sets up His kingdom. That will happen. Until then we have to choose mortal men to lead. Pray about your vote, and vote by God’s guidance.

God bless you all,

Nathele Graham

Nov 6, 2017 the strong correlation between the Dow and who wins the election!

with 4 comments

In this article that appeared in www.miningfeeds.com the author links the performance of the DOW ^DJI with who wins the election. He gives the results since 1888 till present and shows the probability that the DOW did influence the election in a very high percent of the cases studied.

This election offers two very distinct persons and parties hoping to win and take the Nation in the path of their vision.

The chart indicates a strong possibility for a Republican Trump win.

On a side note Friday Nov 4 with about 15 minutes to go for the market to close I asked the Lord to close the market at 17,888. I did this asking as 888 is the Greek Gematria number of Jesus as many of you already know. I left the monitor and came back one hour latter and low and behold the market closed at 17,888.28. Jesus is the one really moving the events here!

Stocks Really Sway Elections

With 2016’s contentious US presidential election just days away now, traders are still trying to game the outcome of this tightening race. With a Hillary Clinton victory long priced in, the mounting odds Donald Trump will prevail have big implications for major markets. One critical place traders should look for clues to how Americans will vote is the stock markets. Recent stock performance really sways election results.

This assertion certainly sounds dubious. When Americans are asked what the most-important issues for determining their votes are, the stock markets wouldn’t even make the list. But interestingly a recent Pew Research poll found that the economy was the number-one issue in this election. 90% of Trump supporters, 80% of Clinton supporters, and 84% of all registered voters rated the economy at the very top.

That beat out terrorism as very important to 80% of all voters, foreign policy at 75%, health care at 74%, gun policy at 72%, and immigration at 70%. Nothing is more important to Americans than the economy. The state of it greatly affects our abilities to earn healthy incomes to support our families, our states of well-being, and our hopes for higher standards of living in the future. Americans have long voted with their wallets.

Naturally our perceptions of the state of the economy are heavily colored by our own experiences. If we are thriving and earning a good living, we tend to believe the overall US economy is strong because our personal economy is strong. But if we are struggling to make ends meet, our own financial challenges taint our perceptions of the general US economy. We extrapolate our own fortunes to a universal scale.

While professional traders have to follow major US economic data since it moves markets, it tends to be pretty technical and difficult for laymen to understand. It’s surprising how often headline economic data like jobs or gross domestic product implies one thing, but those very same reports’ internals suggest the exact opposite. An excellent example was last Friday’s highly-anticipated initial number on US Q3 GDP.

The headline read of +2.9% annualized growth easily beat the +2.5% expected, so the media trumpeted accelerating strength in the US economy. Yet the internals of that same report were very weak. Consumer spending, which accounts for over 2/3rds of all US economic activity, was cut in half from +4.3% in Q2 to just +2.1% in Q3. Fully 0.83% of that 2.9% GDP growth came from an anomalous surge in US soybean exports!
How can busy Americans just trying to live their lives expect to wade through these endless torrential data streams? The US economy is fantastically complex and interrelated with everything, and thus very challenging for anyone to understand. So Americans naturally look for a simple proxy to represent how the overall economy is faring. And not surprisingly that happens to be prevailing US stock-market levels.

To the great majority of Americans, the stock markets are the economy! Every evening the mainstream media reports briefly on whether the stock markets were up or down that day. When they have rallied, the media looks for good economic news to attribute it to like a headline-GDP beat. When stock markets sell off, any weak economic news du jour is blamed. Stock-market fortunes greatly influence economic perceptions.

Experienced traders know this gross oversimplification is misleading. Collective greed and fear moves stock markets, forcing them to overvalued or undervalued levels relative to the underlying economy. But whether using stock markets as a US-economy proxy is righteous or not is irrelevant, since perception becomes reality in people’s minds. This phenomenon makes stock markets really sway presidential elections.

The battle lines among the American electorate have long been drawn. About 40% of American voters will vote Republican no matter what, while a proportional opposing 40% will always vote Democrat. That leaves the remaining 20% of independents or swing voters to nearly always decide elections. And their collective opinions on who to support change based on their views of the US economy, and thus stock markets.

Unlike the hardcore bases of the two major political parties who knew they were going to vote for their own party’s candidate forever, independent voters often don’t make up their minds until the final weeks of a presidential race. As they tend to vote with their wallets, that makes their choices very susceptible to their latest perceptions of the US economy. And those are utterly dominated by recent stock-market fortunes.

There’s been much research on this fascinating phenomenon of stock-market action leading into US presidential elections helping decide them, with various methodologies used. But most I’ve seen are limited in scope, like only looking at the post-World-War-II period. So this week as politics dominate our collective mindshare, I decided to finally do my own deeper study on stock markets and presidential elections.

While the flagship broad-market S&P 500 is a vastly-superior stock index on every front, the venerable Dow Jones Industrial Average is probably way more important for elections. Since the mainstream media is still always reporting on stock markets in Dow terms, that’s the number most Americans follow. On top of that, the Dow’s history stretches all the way back to 1885 compared to just 1957 for the S&P 500.

So the DJIA, or Dow 30, has continuity running all the way back to the 1888 US presidential election! That grants us the greatest-possible sample size for investigating the apparent impact on voters’ choices from leading-in stock-market performance. Remember that US presidential elections are always held on the Tuesday immediately after the first Monday in November. That fixes the range at November 2nd to 8th.

I looked at leading-in stock-market performance per the Dow 30 in three separate ways. The first is how the Dow fared in the August, September, and October span leading into the early-November elections, or the final 3 calendar months. Next I cut out August and just considered the September-October span, the final 2 calendar months. Finally I looked at the precise 3 trading months running right up to election days.

The fascinating results are summarized in these tables. The first column shows the election year of the 32 US presidential elections since 1888. That’s our sample size. The next five columns show how each election played out. The incumbent political party controlling the presidency leading into each election is listed, followed by which party actually won. Next comes the election result for the incumbent party.

Then the winning president is listed color-coded for his party, along with the percentage of the electoral-college votes he received. The United States of America is thankfully a Constitutional representative republic ruled by laws, not a democracy where majority mob-rule reigns. When I started this research, I was wondering if bigger leading-in stock-market moves resulted in larger electoral-vote wins by presidents.

The last six columns show the various market performances in Dow terms for August, September, and October (ASO), September and October (SO), and the precise final 3 trading months leading right into election days (F3m). The rule is simple. If the stock markets rose in a given span and the incumbent party won the presidency, or stock markets fell and the incumbent party lost, then the rule worked in that election.

That’s the core crux of this thesis that leading-in stock-market action really sways presidential elections. If stock markets rally as independent voters are deciding how to cast their votes in the final pre-election weeks, then they feel better about the economy. So they vote for the incumbent party to maintain the status quo. If the economy seems to be improving as evidenced by stock markets, why change anything?

Conversely if the stock markets fall leading into elections these swing voters feel worse about the state of the economy. They fear their own personal economies will mirror that perceived downturn. Thus they decide to vote for a change of direction by supporting the challenging party’s bid for the presidency. So the incumbent party is kicked out of office. The hard data shows stocks do really sway US presidential elections!


Given the long 131-year history of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, these 32 US presidential elections since 1888 are the largest-possible sample size. And the results are very compelling. The incumbent party wins the US presidency when stock markets are up leading into elections, and loses it when stocks are down, the great majority of the time. The probabilities vary slightly by rule, but are all quite high.

If the Dow 30 rises in that calendar August, September, and October span leading into early-November elections, or falls, the incumbent party indeed appropriately wins or loses the presidency fully 75% of the time! Using the September-October span, that dips modestly to a 69% chance of success for this rule. And avoiding calendar months for the precise final 3 trading months leading into election days, 75% success is again seen.

This is extraordinary, amazing, and maybe even disturbing. Out of the entire history of major US stock indexes, their performances in the final months leading into elections effectively predict the results a whopping 3/4ths of the times! All that campaigning, the billions of dollars now spent, the endless media coverage and stress presidential campaigns fuel, might all be for naught. The stock markets apparently trump all!

While the party faithful do their thing, the independent voters in the middle who determine the results are voting with their wallets. Their perceptions of US economic strength are positive when stock markets are rising, so they vote for more of the same through the incumbent party. But when stock markets fall leading into elections, they start to worry about their own economic fortunes and vote to kick out the incumbents.

This is disturbing because it is ripe for manipulation. Modern successful presidential campaigns cost well over a billion dollars to run. If an exceptionally-shrewd hedge-fund manager was given that kind of money to explicitly manipulate stock indexes, it might be possible to pull off. By strategically buying or selling highly-leveraged S&P 500 index futures at key technical breakpoints, stock markets might be herded.

So could a future presidential campaign try to briefly push stock markets higher if it held the presidency as the incumbent party, or short them lower if it was the challenger party? Maybe. A billion dollars isn’t much money in stock-market terms, and wouldn’t move stock markets for long. But with exquisite timing of futures trades and their outsized impact, and a bit of luck in the economic-news cycle, it could move the needle.

Interestingly it does look like the magnitude of stock-market move indeed affects the size of presidential wins in electoral-vote terms. The two biggest electoral-vote victories in modern times were Bill Clinton’s 70% for his second term in 1996 and Barack Obama’s 68% for his first term in 2008. Bill Clinton was the incumbent, and the stock markets rocketed higher in the final months leading into that 1996 election.

Conversely in 2008 Barack Obama was the challenger, and highly controversial due to his socialist and even Marxist policy positions. But he won a decisive victory against John McCain largely because stock markets plummeted in their first full-on panic in a century leading into that election! The American voters were understandably terrified of the US economy spiraling into a depression, so they booted the incumbent party.

And if political historians looked into the times the leading-in stock-market fortunes failed to sway if not predict the presidential-election outcomes, many would have exceptional circumstances. In 1956 for example, the stock markets plunged heading into early November. Yet popular general and war hero Dwight Eisenhower obliterated Adlai Stevenson, a former Illinois governor who had no real political base.

And a bit later in 1968, Richard Nixon beat the stock-market-forecast odds to win a narrow victory over Hubert Humphrey. He was the sitting vice president under Lyndon Johnson, who was wildly unpopular over his Vietnam war and extensive race riots. Still, challenger Nixon only won in a year stock markets soared heading into that election because third-party candidate George Wallace bled away 8.6% of the electoral vote!

All this history is fascinating, but the real question today is what are the stock markets implying about the outcome of this Tuesday’s battle between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton? Trump is the challenger since the Democratic party is incumbent with Obama currently holding the presidency. History has shown Hillary Clinton has a 3/4ths chance of winning if stock markets rally in the final months leading in.

Unfortunately for the Democrats, that didn’t happen. The venerable Dow 30 actually fell a considerable and material 1.6% between the final trading days of July and October, and dropped a similar 1.4% in this year’s calendar September and October. And though the stock markets’ performance in the precise final 3 months leading into election day are not yet known, the Dow was way up at 18544 back at that start point.

As of this Wednesday, the data cutoff for this essay, the Dow 30 had fallen a major 3.1% since its close on August 5th exactly 3 months before election day. It’s hard to imagine such a big loss being made up in the final few trading days heading into the election, no matter what happened in this morning’s US monthly jobs report. The stock markets overwhelmingly and conclusively predict Donald Trump will win!

People like to argue that this election cycle is exceptionally wild, strange, and contentious. That may be true, but I’m skeptical. In doing the research for this essay, I studied every historical election where the stock-market rule failed. It is amazing how much social tumult there was, with serious issues ranging from wars to stock panics to depressions to political assassinations to racial unrest. 2016 feels tame in comparison.

While there has certainly been minor racial tension, this year has thankfully seen no wars, stock panics, depressions, or political assassinations. So odds are that 3/4ths historical chance that leading-in stock-market fortunes will sway this election’s outcome will hold true. The caveat is we’re only coming off all-time record stock-market highs. So maybe independents will feel like the US economy is thriving, and vote incumbent.

For weeks if not months, the financial markets have been overwhelmingly pricing in a Hillary Clinton victory on Tuesday. Polls have shown her with a commanding advantage, even though many of them are highly suspect for oversampling Democrats. Almost all the polls I’ve dug into survey Democrats on the order of 44% compared to 37% for Republicans, giving Clinton an automatic built-in lead of 7 points.

If she indeed wins as traders seem to expect, the markets aren’t likely to change much since they are already positioned for that. But if Donald Trump surprises and beats the perceived long odds to win, the markets are in for some serious repositioning trading. Provocatively we don’t even have to guess at what’s likely to happen, as a preview conveniently played out last Friday on some major poll-swinging news.

Around 1:30pm on Friday October 28th, the FBI director shocked the world by writing a letter to Congress saying the FBI found new Hillary Clinton e-mails it needs to examine for classified information. This was a huge surprise because this same FBI director had all but exonerated Clinton in that same investigation just a few months earlier. Traders were suddenly faced with surging odds of Trump actually winning!

So what happened? The lofty overvalued stock markets sold off instantly and sharply. While Trump’s lower taxes and less regulation should be very bullish for stocks over the long term, traders fear all the uncertainty a Trump Administration would bring. They think Clinton represents the Obama status quo, that nothing major will change. So a surprise Trump win Tuesday would likely unleash serious stock selling.

This can be gamed with put options in the flagship SPY SPDR S&P 500 ETF. If stock markets indeed drop on the uncertainty of a Trump win, or God forbid the far-worse uncertainty of a contested election, index puts are going to soar in value. Buying puts doesn’t seem particularly risky, as stock markets are very high and overdue for a major selloff anyway. So a Clinton win is still very unlikely to spark a major rally.

The other major market move last Friday on the FBI reopening its investigations into Hillary Clinton was gold surging. Gold tends to move counter to stock markets, so as they dropped it immediately caught a big safe-haven bid. Gold has just green lighted a major new upleg after it got hammered back in early October as futures stops were run. So traders gaming a Trump victory can also go long gold and its miners’ stocks.

The easiest way to get portfolio gold exposure is buying shares in or call options on the dominant GLD SPDR Gold Shares gold ETF. But gold’s gains will be amplified as always by the stocks of its miners, as their profits really leverage gold upside. Gold stocks conveniently happen to be screaming buys right now for other reasons, and a Trump win can be played with their leading GDX VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF.

While the major gold-stock ETFs will surge dramatically with gold if stock markets sell off materially for any reason, including a Trump win or contested election, their gains will be trounced by the best of the individual gold miners. A carefully-handpicked portfolio of elite individual gold and silver stocks with superior fundamentals will really amplify sector gains, dwarfing the performances of the gold-stock ETFs.

At Zeal we’ve spent literally tens of thousands of hours researching individual gold stocks and markets, so we can better decide what to trade and when. This has resulted in 851 stock trades recommended in real-time for our newsletter subscribers since 2001. Their average annualized realized gains including all losers are running way up at +24.1% as of the end of Q3! Why not put our expertise to work for you?

We’ve been super-aggressively adding gold-stock and silver-stock trades since that anomalous gold-stock plummet in early October. These great new trades are detailed in our popular weekly and monthly newsletters, and remain cheap and ripe to buy. Both newsletters draw on our vast experience, knowledge, wisdom, and ongoing research to explain what’s going on in the markets, why, and how to trade them with specific stocks. Subscribe today! For just $10 an issue, you can learn to think, trade, and thrive like a contrarian.

The bottom line is stock-market fortunes in the final few months leading into US presidential elections really sway their results. If stock markets rally into early-November voting, the incumbent party is likely to win since voters feel comfortable about the state of the economy. But if stock markets fall in that critical sentiment-shaping span, independent voters start worrying about the economy and kick out the incumbent party.

For a century and a quarter, this simple stock-market rule has had a 3/4ths chance of predicting how a presidential election will play out. And this year the materially-weak stock markets since mid-August argue strongly in favor of the incumbent party losing. That means the odds of a Trump victory are much higher than traders believe, creating the potential for big market swings if he wins and traders rush to reposition.

Sept 17, 2016 The true face behind the mask worn by Hillary Clinton.

In the coming November election the true choice is starkly seen as remain an integral and independent nation by electing Trump or succumb independence and integrate into a one world government by voting for H Clinton.

The economy problem is moot as it will collapse before the election. Obama is the Antichrist and the new world government will be a reality as the Bible states in the book of Revelation. The only question is what role will the USA play in this new world order and how crippled and totalitarian will the country be?

Hillary Is Secretive, Abusive Because of Psychic Scarring

TDB's picture

She wasn’t always like this … No, Hillary Rodham Clinton was once willing to share her deepest thoughts and feelings, as she did in a 1993 speech on “the politics of meaning,” delivered as her father lay dying, in which she said the country was suffering “a sleeping sickness of the soul,” and urged her fellow citizens “to remold society by redefining what it means to be a human being in the 20th century.”   – Politico

This article attempts to convince us that Hillary is secretive and abusive because she has been psychically injured during her long career of public service.

But there are so many instances in Hillary’s past of ways she has deliberately injured others that it is difficult to believe such acts are mostly the result of ongoing injured feelings.

On its surface, therefore, this Politico article is jaw-dropping in terms of its thesis and argumentation. But there is probably another reason for its dissemination as well: More on that below.

From a surface standpoint, we are aware that she has been more than ordinarily abusive to others working with her or reporting to her. It has even been suggested that Vince Foster killed himself because of her relentless denigration when he worked at the White House as Special Council.

But another reason has recently circulated once more for Foster’s supposed suicide: He was devastated by the Waco massacre, which Hillary supposedly had a hand in triggering.  See here.

It is hard to believe that Hillary pushed for the cold-blooded murder of 80 individuals including women and children because of personal psychic scarring. Supposedly, Waco was impeding the momentum of the health-care overhaul she wanted to pursue.

Perhaps Hillary was so mean in the White House because her husband was having numerous outside affairs. But the way she chose to handle these affairs was not necessarily to confront Bill but to intimidate the women by means fair and foul to ensure they did not talk.

Right from the beginning of her White House tenure, Hillary was malicious and manipulative. She fired the personnel of the White House Travel office and tried to jail individuals with phony charges of corruption. She did this because she wanted her own people in charge of the office, which generated lucrative fees.

When Hillary and Bill left the White House they stole a lot of furniture and silverware, and eventually had to give some of it back.

These are just some of the issues surrounding Hillary that seem to indicate that her behavior is not the result of psychic scarring but something more profound and even wicked.

The Politico article is firm in its thesis and analysis however:

[As a result of her speech] she was roundly, relentlessly ridiculed, most infamously in a New York Times cover story, titled “Saint Hillary,” by the late Michael Kelly, in which she expounded at even greater length on her personal passions, unaware that Kelly would use them to mock her for high-minded earnestness.

In those interviews, the public Hillary Clinton was altogether different than the one the public sees today: less guarded, more candid, far more eager to embrace the “larger message” she’s so often criticized for lacking now.

When Kelly suggested to her that she was “trying to come up with a sort of unified-field theory of life,” she responded in what he described as “excited” tones: “That’s right, that’s exactly right!”

“She is, it develops in the course of two long conversations,” Kelly wrote then, “looking for a way of looking at the world that would marry conservatism and liberalism, and capitalism and statism, that would tie together practically everything: the way we are, the way we were …

This is a good explanation of Hillary’s fundamental approach to politics and life: She wants to marry “capitalism and statism” together.

In other words, the animating drive of her adult life was to create lasting fascism and impose it on America.

She is not so far from doing so.

Presumably, in the process of realizing her dreams for the larger society, Hillary was able to justify actions most would find reprehensible.

That’s one way to look at it. Another is simply that she is a venal and manipulative person who has a sociopath’s gift for doing as she chooses without concern for the results.

In any event, it is very difficult to marry her many malicious actions with psychic scarring based on people’s unkindness.

There are many in this world exposed to worse who do not act the way Hillary behaves, and thus it is very hard to take this Politico story seriously.

But as we suggested at the beginning of this article, there may be other reasons to publish this Politico perspective.

First, we have to realize that as ridiculous as this Politico article seems it is by no means alone. There are pro-Hillary articles published on a regular basis that are nearly as illogical and naïve-seeming as this one.

It is fairly clear to anyone who pays attention that the Clintons are part of a larger corrupt system that is dedicated to removing or diminishing nation-states in order to create stronger global governance.

Part of this system involves putting into place destructive mechanisms that undermine the military, politics and even the media.

It is this last point that is important to note here. Hillary’s political campaign has forced the worst kind of biased and inaccurate reporting out into the open.

The most “prestigious” publications such as the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times as well as the country pre-eminent thought magazines such as The New Yorker and The Atlantic regularly issue article that almost anyone capable of reading can debunk.

We would argue this is not by accident. The other day (here) we made the point that it seemed Hillary’s elite backers were desperate to ensure her election. We hypothesized that her ability to lead the US into war was seen as most valuable.

It is fairly clear that the world’s economic system is worsening and that central banking actions are undermining whatever shards of solvency are still apparent. Consider this thesis as viable and then accept that it is being buttressed by reports such as the one just issued by Gallup (here) showing that Americans hold mass media in lower respect than ever.

We would argue that these two results are not unrelated. American mainstream media is being torn down on purpose along with the political process to further raze democracy and weaken the West’s functionality generally.

Conclusion: The world and specifically the West are being prepared for a major change that will feature a diminution of local authority in favor of global governance. Within this context, articles even as terrible as this one in Politico are no accident. They are designed to polarize the population and increase mistrust of mass media reporting. It is fortunate, therefore, that we have the opposition of ‘Net news.

Sept 17 2016 Is an economic meltdown coming to USA in less than a month?

As I have stated in past articles I think that conditions are just right for a major economic meltdown worldwide.

The article explains the enormous distortion caused by the credit and derivatives bubbles that are ready to burst. I believe that bubble will burst on October 3, 2016 on the day of Rosh Hashanah  and it will bear the signature authentication of GOD.

The Financial System is in Worse Shape Today Than in 2007

Phoenix Capital Research's picture

This is a reprint from an article published earlier this year. In light of what’s happening in the markets today, the below items are worth rememebering!

For seven years, the world has operated under a complete delusion that Central Banks somehow fixed the 2008 Crisis.

All of the arguments claiming this defied common sense. A 5th grader would tell you that you cannot solve a debt problem by issuing more debt. Similarly, anyone with a functioning brain could tell you that a bunch of academics with no real-world experience, none of whom have ever started a business or created a single job can’t “save” the economy.

However, there is an AWFUL lot of money at stake in believing these lies. So the media and the banks and the politicians were happy to promote them. Indeed, one could very easily argue that nearly all of the wealth and power held by those at the top of the economy stem from this fiction.

So it’s little surprise that no one would admit the facts: that the Fed and other Central Banks not only don’t have a clue how to fix the problem, but that they actually have almost no incentive to do so.

So here are the facts:

·      The REAL problem for the financial system is the bond bubble. In 2008 when the crisis hit it was $80 trillion. It has since grown to over $100 trillion.

·      The derivatives market that uses this bond bubble as collateral is over $555 trillion in size.

·      Many of the large multinational corporations, sovereign governments, and even municipalities have used derivatives to fake earnings and hide debt. NO ONE knows to what degree this has been the case, but given that 20% of corporate CFOs have admitted to faking earnings in the past, it’s likely a significant amount.

·      Corporations today are more leveraged than they were in 2007. The average credit rating for US companies that have issued debt is JUNK. This is WORSE than it was in 2008.

·      The Central Banks are now all leveraged at levels greater than or equal to Lehman Brothers was when it imploded. The Fed is leveraged at 78 to 1. The ECB is leveraged at over 26 to 1. Lehman Brothers was leveraged at 30 to 1.

·      The Central Banks have no idea how to exit their strategies. Fed minutes released from 2009 show Janet Yellen was worried about how to exit when the Fed’s balance sheet was $1.3 trillion. Today it’s over $4.5 trillion.

·      Today, Central Bankers are now actively punishing depositors and bond holders with negative interest rates. Globally, over $13 trillion in debt currently have negative yields in nominal terms, meaning the bond literally has a negative yield when it trades. In the simplest of terms this means that investors are PAYING to own these bonds.

Bonds are not unique in this regard. Switzerland, Denmark and other countries are now charging deposits at their banks. In France and Italy, you are not allowed to make cash transactions above €1,000. So if get fed up with the banks and want to pull your money out, you cannot.

We are heading for a crisis that will be exponentially worse than 2008. The global Central Banks have literally bet the financial system that their theories will work. They haven’t. All they’ve done is set the stage for an even worse crisis in which entire countries will go bankrupt.

More and more this environment feels like late 2007/ early 2008: when the economy was in collapse but stocks held up on hopes that the Fed could maintain the bubble.

We’re currently preparing for a similar situation today.

On that note, we are already preparing our clients for this with a 21-page investment report titled the Stock Market Crash Survival Guide.

In it, we outline the coming crash will unfold…which investments will perform best… and how to take out “crash” insurance trades that will pay out huge returns during a market collapse.
