The War against corruption

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

China and other members of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) have agreed to deny safe haven to anyone engaged in corruption.  See: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-29965849

US Secretary of State John Kerry hailed the move as a "major step forward".

"Corruption not only creates an unfair playing field, it not only distorts economic relationships, but corruption also steals from the people of every country the belief that the system can work for everybody," he told journalists.

What would happen if the U.S. did the same?  Wall Street could be shut down due to a large number of missing employees.  What other institutions would experience the same dilemma?

Two definitions of the word corruption:

-  dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery.

-  the process by which something, typically a word or expression, is changed from its original use or meaning to one that is regarded as erroneous or debased.

It could get ugly real quick if a law was passed AND enforced in the U.S.  The price of gold and silver would skyrocket on the day the law went into effect.

Playing with People’s Futures

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

People on Social Security just can’t get a break.  They work under a mandated set of assumptions and guidelines for multiple decades and when it comes time to receive the benefits, they get shortchanged.  Some people don’t realize that the employers were required to match the employee contributions.  At the current rate, a total of 15.3% goes to the U.S. Treasury for each dollar the average person earns.

From the headlines of John Williams’ www.shadowstats.com :

2015 Social Security COLA (cost-of-living-adjustment) at 1.7%
Would Have Been 9.4% without Existing Gimmicks for Understating Inflation

The big boys playing with the numbers have no idea what it takes for the average retiree to make ends meet.  They are rather insulated from the harshness of inflationary food prices at the local grocery store.  $7 for a block of cheese?  I requested an armed guard to accompany me and my cheese to my car.

The average price for a pound of ground beef climbed to another record high–$4.096 per pound–in the United States in September, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

In August, according to BLS, the average price for a pound of all types of ground beef topped $4 for the first time–hitting $4.013. In September, the average price jumped .083 cents, an increase of 2.1 percent in one month.

A year ago, in September 2013, the average price for a pound of ground beef was $3.502 per pound. Since then, it has climbed 59.4 cents–or about 17 percent in one year.

A picture was worth 1.7% but it should have been worth 9.4%:

Food Inflation 2014

We are assured that it is all under control

Frontier Airlines Statement

“At approximately 1:00 a.m. MT on October 15, Frontier was notified by the CDC that a customer traveling on Frontier Airlines flight 1143 Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth on Oct. 13 has since tested positive for the Ebola virus. The flight landed in Dallas/Fort Worth at 8:16 p.m. local and remained overnight at the airport having completed its flying for the day at which point the aircraft received a thorough cleaning per our normal procedures which is consistent with CDC guidelines prior to returning to service the next day. It was also cleaned again in Cleveland last night. Previously the customer had traveled from Dallas Fort Worth to Cleveland on Frontier flight 1142 on October 10.

Customer exhibited no symptoms or sign of illness while on flight 1143, according to the crew. Frontier responded immediately upon notification from the CDC by removing the aircraft from service and is working closely with CDC to identify and contact customers who may traveled on flight 1143.

The airline, hotel, amusement, cruise, and car rental companies are now high risk as individuals exposed to the Ebola virus are highly mobile.  This could spread to retail which is already on the skids.

People may begin eating at home again as the risk of exposure is highlighted on the nightly news.  There were 132 passengers on board flight 1143.  I wonder how many each of them came in contact with?  The markets will anticipate the outcome and will possibly tank if there are too many cases to absorb in the current healthcare infrastructure.

Economic Warfare

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

The latest drop in oil does not reflect the long-term supply constraint.  I suspect the boys in the Beltway are trying to punish Russia for its activities in the Ukraine.  The Saudis are in agreement with the drop.  Could they need protection from possible invaders?  They are willing to pay the “policeman” to protect their interests.

The graph below looks similar to gold when the agent banks intervene on behalf of western planners to suppress the price:

Look out below… BOOM!

PS:  Oil contracts (paper) are about 20 times the physical supply.  This is also known as leverage and it can cut both ways.

A Conservative View of the Debt

Is the Economy really recovering?

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

It appears the US Department of Transportation’s Trust fund is running out of money.  People are not driving as much thus the road tax revenue continues to dwindle.

 

Shadowstats.com reports:

Down for the Month, August Existing-Home Sales Were in Tenth Month of Annual Decline

Durable Goods Orders Crashed 18.0% (-18.0%), Reversing July’s 22.2% Surge, Dominated Again by Irregular Commercial-Aircraft Orders

The primary reason this lengthy recession does not look like the 1930’s is due to the difference of infrastructure and government assistance payments.  Social Security was enacted in 1935 and has grown ever since.  In 2011 some 49.2 percent of U.S. households received benefits from one or more government programs—about 151 million out of an estimated 306.8 million Americans—according to U.S. Census Bureau data released last October.  Where does the money come from?  Out of thin air.  How much longer can this be sustained?  Only Our Heavenly Father knows.

During the election cycle, you can assume that no negative economic numbers will make the headlines.  Afterward, look out!

Answers to the economic challenges ahead can only be found from Above.  If men were smart enough to figure it all out, they would have already implemented the solution.  Any band aid will only deal with the symptom, not the underlying problem.  We are in truly uncharted territory in this current system.  However, there are no surprises in Heaven.

Eight Days Ago

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

On Sunday Morning, September 14th, FATHER spoke to me about the Iraqi Dinar (IQD)  held in the treasury at Servias Ministries.  HE indicated that it was time for it to leave the treasury.  We have held the Dinar for over two years, faithfully safeguarding it.  There are two aspects to a treasury: receiving and distributing.  At any rate, FATHER told me it was time to remove it from the treasury and it was to be distributed to God’s Kingdom Ministries.  I started considering “when” and HE said “Now”.  That Word prompted me to immediate action and we delivered the package at precisely 2:10 PM on 9/18 in Fridley, MN.  The mission was complete after 1,700 miles, we were home by 11 PM on Friday.

I have had many calls concerning the IQD over the last few years.  Each time I would reply that I have no revelation concerning its revaluation.  It is not my revelation thus I have no position concerning its future.  As I have written in the past, I do not believe the current economic system will be fixed, but instead it will be replaced by FATHER’S economic system.

Over a decade ago I was given certain ancient artifacts valued at $350 million to be held in “safekeeping”.  I faithfully watched over them and then one day Our Heavenly Father instructed me to distribute them back to the owner.  I did so.  Was it a test?  Of course.  It seems to be a parallel to the current instruction.

Is the potential windfall of the Iraqi Dinar a test?  Clearly.  In the end, each of us must look at the whole IQD event in relation to what personal intent surfaced from the heart and thoughts.  The potential windfall reminds me of the many trips I took to Europe in an effort to fund infrastructure projects for third world countries.  When large sums of money are on the table, the deepest intent within the heart of man is exposed.  The love of money was often found to be the “deal breaker” when the funding failed.  In the meantime people continued to be in great need.  Many plans were made with the expectation of success.  They were mothballed.  Those trips provided a notable education and  FATHER spared no expense.

Our Heavenly Father prepares HIS people before providing the resources.  The internal precedes the external, not the opposite.  Think about it.  To this day, I have no position on the IQD.

What do you expect?

All of the current systems in place (political, economic, religious) are based on man’s carnal intent.  The old man seeks to control and dominate others whether it be by use of emotion, physical power, mental power, or monetary restriction.  The old man seeks to place everyone into bondage and submission.  On the economic front, this is done by which currencies are acceptable and your access to them, even if you have claim to a portion.

A bank holiday is designed to restrict you from your money.

Credit and debit cards are designed to exert control over you in a moment’s notice, no matter where you are at.

Online banking is convenient until you don’t have access via the Internet.

Your money in the bank is not yours, it is a claim.

Stocks in your brokerage account are not yours unless physical certificates are issued in your name, otherwise you only have a claim.

Martial law is designed to restrict your movements.

Border control is designed to keep you in or out whichever the case may be… even if you are a citizen.

Legislation against enemies of the state is now broad enough to circumvent any personal rights.

The simple reality is this: the guy with the gun, the badge, and the prison is the Law.  How are we to respond?  Live peaceably and know that in the end Our Heavenly Father will prevail over man’s carnal systems.  In the meantime, pay your taxes, abide by the law, and be above reproach knowing that the system will only get worse and lawlessness will increase as the Sons are being prepared.  Don’t let your emotions get the best of you but focus on the Word of Father to sustain you as things get dicey out there.  As we are led by the Spirit, HE will navigate us through and protects us from the prevailing lawlessness.  Don’t expect the current system to get fixed.  The train is moving rapidly toward the cliff and the only real solution is found in Heavenly Places.  That is where we must place our trust.  When will the dung hit the fan?  Father knows, everyone else is simply guessing.

Obama Commits US to War against Russia in Defense of Baltic States

Monday, September 8th, 2014

At a joint press conference September 3 with Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves, Obama declared, “So I’ve come here, first and foremost, to reaffirm the commitment of the United States to the security of Estonia. As NATO allies, we have Article 5 duties to our collective defense. That is a commitment that is unbreakable. It is unwavering. It is eternal.”

See:

There is a provocation to pull Putin into war by placing NATO forces on Russia’s border.  Coincidentally, the BRICS countries are in the midst of moving away from the US Dollar for payment settlement of oil & gas.  Iran, Iraq, and Libya all attempted the same strategy.  Will the western response be any different this time?
