‘Mark of the Beast’ update! New Evidence!

July 24, 2017

Our economic system is gradually and relentlessly evolving into a control system which has been prophesied for these end-time days. Many of us who understand and believe in Providence believe that this end-time monetary system (which is evolving as I write) will be this ‘Mark of the Beast’ system. I see this system emerging daily as our Central Planners work to install digital money as the default model for money. Today, I noticed that a company in River Falls, Wisconsin, has adopted a harbinger to this Beast system for some of their employees. You can watch a short video on this company and the system:

http://www.wbay.com/content/news/Wisconsin-company-offers-to-implant-employees-with-microchips-436316933.html

 

RIVER FALLS, Wis. (WBAY) – It sounds like the plot of a dystopian science fiction story, but it’s very real. A Wisconsin company has offered its employees a chance to be implanted with microchips.

Three Square Market

Three Square Market, based in River Falls, says employees will be implanted with RFID chips “allowing them to make purchases in their break room micro market, open doors, login to computers, use the copy machine, etc.” The microchip is optional. The company says it is the first in the United States to offer the technology to employees. The chip is implanted between the thumb and forefinger of the skin.

 

It uses “near-field communication”, which is similar to Apple Pay and Google Wallet on smartphones. “We foresee the use of RFID technology to drive everything from making purchases in our office break room market, opening doors, use of copy machines, logging into our office computers, unlocking phones, sharing business cards, storing medical/health information, and used as payment at other RFID terminals. Eventually, this technology will become standardized allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities, etc.” said 32M CEO, Todd Westby.

 

A Swedish company called Biohax International is also planning to chip a group of their employees for their future needs beginning in August. The Swedish startup hub Epicenter is also applying this technology. The company offers to implant its workers and startup members with microchips the size of grains of rice that function as swipe cards: to open doors, operate printers, or buy smoothies with a wave of the hand. The injections have become so popular that workers at Epicenter hold parties for those willing to get implanted.

 

All this evolution is a result of our Central Planners adopting digital money for our markets. Digital money consists of currency units created from the mind of our banksters. This gives our banksters the option to ‘control’ all of us and watch (plus record) all our private monetary decisions (including our real-time location) and whereabouts via GPS software. It’s sinister and corrupt but most everyone will fall for this technology as the Days of Noah continue to evolve.

 

Prepare now to exit the entire monetary system down the road when the Beast System gets fully programmed for its control over human behavior. To buy or sell one will need to give allegiance to this Beast System. Personally, I will start my barter system at this time as I will refuse to take this prophesied ‘Mark’. Many others in America and the world are aware that a Beast financial system is emerging rapidly. So, a barter black market system may work for those of us who reject this ‘control’ and ‘mandated’ official system.

 

Much of the world (which now bows to technology and governments) will buy into this digital control system. Many of my Swedish friends (most who are very secular in their thinking) will likely buy into this system. If fact they already are in spades. Anyone with a materialistic mindset (worldview) will likely buy into this system. Those of us with a metaphysical/spiritual worldview, however, will summarily reject this system and those who attempt to implement it. The time to reject the Mark is soon arriving for many of us. Think for yourself going forward! I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.

 

 

Trump lauds New ‘Carrier’ as Creating Fear!

July 23, 2017

Image result for deployment of Gerald Ford carrier

The new $12.9 billion USS Gerald Ford is being deployed into our Atlantic ocean. Our new President claims this will make our enemies “shake with fear”. President Trump says “American might is second to none and we’re getting bigger and better and stronger every day of my administration”. What does this image and rhetoric create for Americans? To me this creates the image that MIGHT makes RIGHT for America. The article in the Arizona Daily Star, July 23, 2017, is headlined with “New Carrier will make enemies shake with fear”.

The history of America from its beginning is one of solving problems mostly with the use of MIGHT. America has experienced some 120 wars in its 241 year history. This formula of ‘Might makes Right’ has worked to a degree to impose America’s will upon the planet. We now have another President, the Donald, who desires new increases in our military spending so that MIGHT can prevail over all our enemies. Is this mindset a formula for success?

Does the End justify the Means as America seems to think? Does America’s concept of democracy for everyone create peace and happiness for the planet? Personally, I don’t think so! Our world has changed and we now have some nine nations with nuclear weapons who could challenge our strategy of ‘Might makes Right’. America started this trend of solving problems via ‘Might’ (mostly after WWII) and the current nuclear club of nations means that our old mindset of ‘Might makes Right’ is now seriously flawed.

If America uses its MIGHT to solve the current perceived problems over in the Middle East, Afghanistan, North Korea, or within any other major geopolitical area, the result will be tit for tat (action/reaction) result. Bomb and get bombed will likely be the result. All the American aircraft carriers, nuclear subs, cruise missiles, and drones will not solve anything going forward (permanently). The philosophy of Might makes Right is now obsolete! But will American leaders recognize this reality? Probably not! Why?

It appears that our current President, the Donald, is of the mindset that our military can solve or resolve any major conflict, irrespective of who the enemy might be. This mindset is very dangerous in today’s world IMO. Killing thousands, millions, or billions of people can not solve any of our deep-seated philosophical problems  permanently. In fact, the killing will lead to counter-killing and this mindset is a NO WIN strategy. There are 7.4 billion people on this planet. How many would need to be ‘killed’ in order for America to win its ‘democracy for everyone’ goal?

I think America would need to kill nearly everyone on the planet. People do not see values and goals in the same manner. A person of the Islamic faith for example will view reality differently from Americans. A person of a Buddhist, Hindu, Shamanist, or Chondoist faith will view reality differently from most Americans. North Korea is mostly of a Shamanist/Chondoist faith and imposing some type of American secularism on this country would be fatal (in the minds of these leaders). The same goes for Afghanistan where the Taliban will never bow to America’s view of democracy.

So all the MIGHT in the world will not solve all the ideological issues on the planet. People believe differently and this will continue going forward. This means that adding another aircraft carrier like the Gerald Ford will not create the ‘fear’ that Mr. Trump assumes. It will create more conflict with the end result leading directly to some type of nuclear, biological, or chemical weapon to counter America’s global desire for hegemony. Think about human nature and real-time beliefs to comprehend this message. How to win friends and influence people, by Dale Carnegie,  would be a good book for our political leaders to read! Enjoy!

Debt, Debt, Debt, and more D$$$$$$$! Why??

July 21, 2017

 

Image result for americas unpayable total debt

Has America managed their finances in a prudent manner these past 37 years (since 1980)? Let’s look at the numbers which reveal our discipline in managing our financial affairs. You can verify these numbers at: http://www.usdebtclock.org:

  1. Total Local Debt:             $1.945 trillion        (9.3 fold increase since 1980…or 9300%)
  2. Total State Debt:              $1.219 trillion        (10.5 fold increase)
  3. Total National Debt:       $19.965 trillion     (22 fold increase)
  4. Mortgage Debt:                 $14.528 trillion     (10.4 fold increase)
  5. Credit Card Debt:             $1.03 trillion         (8.3 fold increase)
  6. Student Debt:                    $1.463 trillion       (no info for 1980)
  7. Total U.S. Debt:                $67.617 trillion     (33 fold increase)
  8. Trade Deficit (goods):    $768.3 billion       (26 fold increase since 1980)

Have Americans been living above their means these past 37 years? I think so. We have borrowed and borrowed (and borrowed) to maintain our prosperity and our exceptional lifestyle. Much of this at the expense of the world’s citizens who provided us the goods. America has 4.4% of the world’s population yet we consume some 23.6% of Global production. How can this happen? Why this favoritism?

What happens is that America has the ‘reserve’ currency for the planet and we can buy goods and services (without any penalty/restriction) from ALL nations. America can buy on credit (debt) from all 200+ countries on our planet. We can consume much more than we produce (in exchange) as we are essentially the BANKER for the planet. Our dollar ($) is accepted mostly everywhere and this allows us to consume beyond what other countries are capable of doing (given their situation).

Other countries (say Chile, Cuba, Venezuela, Columbia, Libya, Senegal, Sudan, Vietnam, India, Thailand, Russia, Afghanistan, Syria, most of Africa, etc.) do not have a reserve currency which is accepted by all nations. This means that these (less favored) countries must live mostly by their own production and via a much lower level of borrowing. Every country borrows to a degree but America can BORROW to excess (as we have a currency which every other nation desires). The SYSTEM favors America!

So is America an exceptional nation (economically) or are we mostly exceptional in taking ADVANTAGE of the System? Are we ‘giving’ an equivalent amount to what we ‘take’ from the planet? This is an important issue in economics. It appears that America does ‘take’ more than they ‘give’ (especially in consumer products and the goods sector of the world economy). Why do we run trade deficits every year to the tune of billions (today some $768 billion)? This has been happening every year since 1976. The cumulative trade deficits have exceeded some $12 trillion.

If America was ‘giving’ to the planet in proportion to what we are ‘taking’ from the planet, then our trade deficit should be closer to zero (not $768 billion or some $12 trillion since 1976). Our debt situation should be much less and our manufacturing should be much higher. We should also have a currency which creates ‘discipline’ so that production is in balance with our consumption. Having the ‘reserve’ currency for the planet provides us (you and I) ENORMOUS advantages and creates huge suffering for many others on our planet! This is all due to the SYSTEM (as it is set up)!

When you look at the numbers above, think about the BIG picture (the entire planet of 7.4 billion people). We now live in an interconnected global society where each person should be viewed as an equal (economically). Does our SYSTEM allow for this equality of prosperity? I don’t think so! America has 4.4% of the World’s population (325 million of 7.4 billion) and we consume some 23.6% of gross world production. Is this fair? The SYSTEM is the problem! Think on this! I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.

Some images for you do consider:

Good ‘Intentions’ do not mean Good Results! Why?

July 19, 2017

Image result for good intentions do not always lead to good results

Our elites (on the surface) appear to have good intentions. Their ‘words’ reveal these good intentions. Listen to the video below to hear words of ‘good’ intentions. But do these words of ‘good’ intentions lead to a better, more free, more peaceful, and more prosperous global society? We have witnessed the ‘good’ intentions of those who formed the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, which led to the Federal Reserve banking system. We have witnessed the ‘good’ intentions of Franklin D. Roosevelt with his New Deal legislation and policies of tax and more entitlements. We have witnessed the ‘good’ intentions of Lyndon Johnson with his Guns and Butter policies of the 1960’s.

We have witnessed the ‘good’ intentions of Richard Nixon with his China policy as well as his OPEC dollar policy. We have witnessed the ‘good’ intentions of George Bush, Jr. with respect to his nation building policy over in Iraq and Afghanistan. And we have witnessed the ‘good’ intentions of Mr. Obama’s Middle East policies which now confront us daily on the front pages of our official news. Good intentions tend to fool those who lack wisdom and understanding of our history. Good intentions tend to fool those who lack discernment of human nature. Yes, ‘good’ intentions fool nearly all uninformed citizens all over planet earth. This has been the history of ‘good’ intentions. Why?

 

The above video needs to be watched with a mindset of discernment and with a mindset which has understood our prior human history. Human nature has not changed these past 6,000 years. Man desires to rule over man and this has been our legacy since Eve ate the apple. Cain then killed Able and the game of human nature has played out since this starting point. Those who acquire positions of power will continue with their schemes and their rhetorical word games so as to deceive and fool the many. Few discern human nature correctly (it seems). This is one of our core problems!

The key to understanding others is ‘first’ to understand oneself. Socrates laid down the correct mantra back in 400 B.C. IMO. He said “The unexamined life is not worth living”. “To gain wisdom one must recognize that one knows nothing with certainty”. “I can not teach people anything, I can only make them think”. “Life is full of questions, Idiots are full of answers”. “Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people”. “False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil”. Listen to these words of wisdom from a great historical philosopher!

Plato added to the words of Socrates with this additional wisdom:

Image result for words of Socrates

What our world needs now is wisdom. People need to develop some critical thinking skills. Critical thinking means asking questions and recognizing that answers from rulers are generally based on hubris and false/good intentions. Can this Agenda 2030 which is outlined above lead our world to peace, freedom, happiness, and prosperity? Can a centralized politburo of select elites govern the entire human race (all 7.4 billion)? Can a central warehouse of goods, produced with robots and enforced labor camps, bring the world a better and more fulfilled lifestyle? What do you think?

Wisdom is much more than mere knowledge of events and knowledge of laws, rules, policies, and social contracts. Wisdom derives from understanding oneself and the basic laws of human nature. Is everyone only ‘good’ at their core? Is human nature based only on positive thinking and positive rhetoric ? My sense is No. Human nature is based on two faces (one dark and one light). The yin and yang of reality creates our human nature. Overcoming the ‘dark’ is part of growing up and developing sound character. Overcoming the ‘problem’ comes prior to developing a ‘solution’. Give these principles some reflection at your convenience. I will do likewise! I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.

THINK Globally but ACT Individually!

July 19, 2017

Image result for think globally act individually

Our global society is now being polarized (divided) between two opposite extremes. At one end of the string is this 2016 ‘Agenda 2030’ (a United Nations mandate program) and this concept called Centralization of power. At the other end of the string is Kingdom Economics (my personal vision) and this concept called Decentralization of power. My entire blog is about the individual and about solving problems as free individuals (with no ruling STATE system). Agenda 2030 is all about centralizing power and solving problems by force, control, and select mandates from a small group of elites. This polarization of views (philosophy) is growing steadily and I see no alternative but to choose between one or the other.

If you desire individual freedom and the philosophical model of a founding Father like Thomas Jefferson (who disliked any form of tyranny) you will choose Kingdom Economics (self-government). If you are in power and desire one global politburo (say in Basel, Frankfurt, Jerusalem, or similar) to monitor, control, and impose events then you will choose Agenda 2030 (the State solution). Our battle today is between TWO extremes (the ‘individual’ vs. the ‘state’). This will become more evident as current events play out! The end game of civilization is upon us!

Today, we already have global Central Planning ruling over us economically/politically. We have a small group of banks, called Central Banks, which determine who gets what money (say the 1%) and who gets the left overs (say the 99%). This situation is already present as I write this missive. Our global monetary system is now monitored, controlled, and manipulated by a small group of select power brokers (called the Deep State) who meet in secret to administer our global monetary/political system. These power brokers will continue this trend towards centralization of all administration…as they desire this new agenda passed by the U.N. called Agenda 2030.

Have you taken the time to read this global/official Agenda? Read it now: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/post2015/transformingourworld


This Agenda (2030) is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognize that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. All countries and all stakeholders (the 193 members of the U.N.), acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan. We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet (via this agenda/plan). We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we (the elite) pledge that no one will be left behind. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the 169 Targets which we are announcing today (9/2015) demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda. 

Read the above a couple of times and then go to the website at the United Nations for the full details on the 17 goals and the 169 targets. Our elites who wrote this agenda (without any input from the people) will IMPOSE this agenda upon the world as we move forward. This is how our world works. Our rulers who could care less about the views of the individuals (you and I) will IMPOSE this collective/group-think/communist program upon the 7.4 billion individuals on this planet. The United Nations (the 193 members which includes the United States of America) has voted and approved this agenda for our world.

The agenda became OFFICIAL as of January 1, 2016. The current centralized organizations which rule our world will ALL work to coordinate and implement this world shaking program and agenda. Our official media will support and promote this agenda. Our Central Bankers and their proxies will promote and support this agenda. All the leftists and most of the rightist (from every country…including the United States) will promote and support this agenda. The Deep State (which consists of the CFR, IMF, WB, WTO, ICJ, ECC, NATO, BIS, FSB, G20, BG, CGG, and a host of similar organizations) are ALL pushing and promoting this global AGENDA.

The rulers and power brokers on this planet will ALL promote, support, and allow this collectivized STATE to assume control over our planet. This is now in motion and no-one can stop this momentum as of today. The individual and their self-interest will NOT be allowed to challenge this globalized monstrosity which has been officially adopted for our planet. As ONE individual I can oppose this monstrosity and try to educate a few stray thinkers, but I can not challenge or compete with the BIG power brokers who now rule over our markets. I am a ‘voice’ in the wilderness of space with no ability to challenge this coming DRAGON from hell.

My only hope is that these elites who think they rule over me and you are really not in control of the BIG PICTURE. Is there a Creator which is really in control? That is the core question for me. My answer is in the positive! This means that my HOPE lies not in a challenge to the above but in PROVIDENCE. That is my ONLY hope going forward. The system is heading for collectivism, socialism, communism and universalism under a CENTRALIZED politburo system! The die is cast and the game must be played out to determine who wins.

Will the INDIVIDUAL win over the STATE or will the reverse win? The game is in motion and the players are in motion. The ‘individual’ must prevail for Kingdom Economics to have any effect. The ‘state’ must prevail if the elite and their agenda is to prevail. The next decade of struggle will determine the outcome IMO. I may live for this decade or I may not. My sense is that our battle is philosophical, metaphysical, spiritual, inner, and final. The end of civilization as we have known it is here now. Awareness, technology, motivation, knowledge, and understanding are now requirements for survival. Enjoy! I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.

Central Planning allows Markets to avoid the Business Cycle (for a season)!

July 18, 2017

Image result for global financial Central Planning is the economic system today

Let’s face it folks, Capitalism is essentially over and we now must live with Central Planning for all our global electronic markets! All this has evolved from the crisis of 2008. After this crisis our Central Banks initiated this concept called quantitative easing (QE) and they expanded their lending via low-interest rate loans and huge liquidity injections. Companies have borrowed heavily,  many have bought back their own stock, and the general consumer markets have also expanded substantially since 2009. In 2008-09 I was unable to get a low-interest loan for my house property. Since then I have refinanced twice and lowered my payments by hundreds of dollars.

What I was able to do has also been available for nearly everyone. Low interest rates, easy borrowing policies, easy credit with near zero interest rates, and substantial QE injections have allowed our markets to expand and grow. Today, our Central Banks control almost all of our electronic index markets with their various trading strategies. Central Banks can pump-up any market via their trading strategies and via electronic money which they create out-of-nothing. This has allowed continual asset price growth and it now has led to bubble financial markets all over our planet.

My CNBC finance App lists some 39 major market indices which are now electronic indices. These indexes have been pumped up (since 2009) with trading strategies from private traders but also from our primary dealers and our Central Banks. With ample digits (as money) and continual pump priming from major institutions and our Central Banks, all these 39 indices have increased substantially these past 8 years. The American indices have continued this upward trend for nearly 100 months. There have been no major corrections to any of our global electronic markets since 2009 (with China being the exception in 2015).

Can the same factors (low-interest rates, ample lending, increased consumer borrowing, and continual quantitative easing) continue going forward. Will the next 100 months be similar to the past 100 or is it now time to check-mate all this exponential asset growth for a season? My sense is that a check-mate is built into the markets as we move into the second half of 2017 and into 2018. The markets are starting to reveal some serious changes in momentum. I sense this in many of our economic sectors as I write this missive.

The real estate sector is definitely starting to slow, pause, decline in many areas. We see this in many major cities in the USA, in Canada, over in Europe, and also in China. I assume this same situation will be revealed in South America, Africa, Japan, India, and Australia by 2018. This means that our Central Banks will need to exercise exceptional caution as we move forward. Will our Central Planners revert to more QE and loan pump-priming if the markets slow substantially? This is yet unknown! We will need to watch what our Central Planners devise going forward.

We do live in a world where our Central Banks control the markets and what they choose as their strategy will mostly affect what happens going forward. Will the trend toward negative interest rates grow and will more liquidity be injected via quantitative easing strategies? This could happen in spades if our Central Planners choose this option. Computer trading and electronic markets allow our Central Bank trading desks to inject digits in the trillions if this is what they choose. This could prevent a major correction or crash (for a short season).

We now need to get ready for the possibility that the past strategies will NOT be continued going forward. This means that our electronic markets could crash and collapse over the next few months/years. The game of finance and money is dependent on investor confidence, greed, and technological growth. I have witnessed these ingredients for the past 8 years and my sense is that this game (as played to date) is nearly over. What will emerge going forward is the BIG question? We need to watch our Central Planners for evidence and signs!

Watch the news from the European Central Bank, the Bank for International Settlements, the Bank of Japan, the Bank of England, the Peoples Bank of China, the International Monetary Fund, and especially the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States of America. This network of banker Central Planning will determine what happens going forward. Will we witness a crash, a hyper-inflationary pump-priming event, a geopolitical black swan event, a deflationary liquidation trend, or something new which I am unable to comprehend? Watch the few global Central Planners and we should know by the end of 2017 or sooner! I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.

Who should we watch for signs and signals of change:

Senator Flake (Arizona) is a ‘flake’ with his debt buy-down act!

Dealing with Debt: KTAR News reports on Sen. Flake’s Debt Buy-Down Act, legislation that empowers individual taxpayers to designate up to 10 percent of their federal income taxes to pay down the nation’s nearly $20 trillion national debt.  Read the full story hereKey Takeaway: “With the national debt hurtling toward an unprecedented $20 trillion, it’s time taxpayers had real power to reign in Washington’s big spenders. At any rate, I hope this commonsense solution makes like the national debt and grows a lot of interest.” – Sen. Jeff Flake via KTAR

July 13, 2017 – A bill introduced by Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) on Thursday would allow taxpayers to voluntarily pay more in an effort to reduce the federal deficit. “With the national debt hurtling toward an unprecedented $20 trillion, it’s time taxpayers had real power to reign in Washington’s big spenders,” Flake said when introducing the bill. “At any rate, I hope this commonsense solution makes like the national debt and grows a lot of interest.”

Taxpayers would make the payments on their annual income taxes. The bill, called the Debt-Buy Down Act, would also force Congress to make cuts to match the amount contributed by taxpayers to ensure the money goes to reducing the deficit.

“In 2014, Americans paid over $1.37 trillion in individual income taxes,” Flake said. “If every one of those individuals contributed 10 percent of their tax liability, Congress would be required to cut $137 billion in spending. While $137 billion does not solve the $20 trillion debt problem, it is certainly a good place to start.”

Should Congress fail to approve cuts, the Debt-Buy Down Act would trigger budget reductions across the board. However, some areas — such as Social Security benefits, benefits for those in uniform and net interest payments — would be spared.

Flake said the $20 trillion debt would be enough money to buy tickets for every seat at Chase Field for the next 22 million Arizona Diamondbacks games or purchase 20 billion tickets to see “Hamilton.” Flake introduced the same bill seven years ago, when the deficit was nearly $13 trillion.

Comment: The wisdom of Senator Flake’s debt-buy down act reveals the trouble we are all in today. Who in their right mind would want to send 10% of their income to a cabal of government bureaucrats who have demonstrated zero discipline on spending for the past 75 years. This makes no sense and yet this Senator from Arizona thinks this is wise policy. No wonder we are in such trouble financially. We need new leaders with some understanding and wisdom on economics and money.

When I read the above in my email box, I said to myself – this is what a representative of the people proposes for eliminating $20 Trillion of Debt? Is he serious? What we need in Washington is an empty house and senate with AI robots as our leaders. Maybe these AI robots could figure out what the ‘problem’ was/is. Read and weep as this is typical of our elected leadership in Washington. I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.

A Republican leader with the grand idea of having the voting citizens buy-down the $20 trillion of public debt! What has happened to our leaders wisdom and discipline? I don’t think this issue of Flake’s will get any support by our intelligent voters in Arizona or the USA!
