Sometimes, a strongly-worded denial is the most damning evidence of all that something is seriously wrong. And when things start to really get crazy, “the spin” is often the exact opposite of the truth. In recent days we have seen a lot of troubling headlines and a lot of chaos in the global financial marketplace, but authorities continue to assure us that everything is going to be just fine. Of course we witnessed precisely the same thing just prior to the great financial crisis of 2008. Federal Reserve Chair Ben Bernanke insisted that a recession was not coming, and we proceeded to plunge into the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. Is our society experiencing a similar state of denial about what is ahead of us here in 2018?
Let me give you a few examples of some recent things that global economic leaders have said, and what they really meant…
–Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk: “We are definitely not going bankrupt.”
Translation: “We are definitely going bankrupt.”
Tesla is a company that is supposedly worth 51 billion dollars, but the reality is that they are going to zero. They have been bleeding massive amounts of cash for years, and now a day of reckoning has finally arrived. A severe liquidity crunch has forced the company to delay payments or to ask for enormous discounts from suppliers, and many of those suppliers are now concerned that Tesla is on the verge of collapse…
Specifically, a recent survey sent privately by a well-regarded automotive supplier association to top executives, and seen by the WS , found that 18 of 22 respondents believe that Tesla is now a financial risk to their companies.
Meanwhile, confirming last month’s report that Tesla is increasingly relying on net working capital, and specifically accounts payable to window dress its liquidity, several suppliers said Tesla has tried to stretch out payments or asked for significant cash back. And in some cases, public records show, small suppliers over the past several months have claimed they failed to get paid for services supplied to Tesla.
–Shark Tank billionaire Mark Cuban: “I’ve got a whole lot of cash on the sidelines.”
Translation: “I believe that the stock market is about to crash.”
Mark Cuban is not stupid. Like Warren Buffett, he is sitting on giant piles of cash as he waits for stock valuations to return to their long-term averages. And when “something happens”, Cuban insists that he is “ready, willing and able” to make some bold moves…
Billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban told CNBC on Monday that he’s holding much more cash than he normally does because he’s concerned about the stock market and U.S debt levels.
“I’m down to maybe four dividend-owning stocks, two shorts, and Amazon and Netflix. I’ve got a whole lot of cash on the sidelines,” Cuban said on “Fast Money Halftime Report.” “[I’m] ready, willing and able if something happens” to invest.
–Deutsche Bank: We need our employees to “take every opportunity to restrict non-essential travel” in order to cut costs.
Translation: We are on the verge of collapse, and we have got to save every single penny that we can right now.
If you follow my work on a regular basis, you already know that I have been extremely hard on Deutsche Bank. The biggest bank in Europe is teetering on the brink, and this latest move is more evidence that their days are numbered…
Forget the days of traveling first class to meet clients: Deutsche Bank, which following major management upheaval in the past year, is telling its employees to take the bus whenever possible.
In the latest indignity to befall the bank’s employees, in a memo sent by Deutsche Bank CFO James von Moltke, the biggest European bank – if certainly not by market cap – urged employees to “take every opportunity to restrict non-essential travel” until the end of the year adding that “with your help, we will meet our cost-reduction targets.”
–Italian Cabinet Undersecretary Giancarlo Giorgetti: “I hope that the quantitative easing program will go forward.”
Translation: If the ECB does not buy our bonds, the Italian financial system is toast.
Italy will almost certainly be the fulcrum of the next European financial crisis, and the truth is that the EU will not have enough money to bail Italy out once it collapses.
So the Italians desperately need the ECB to continue buying their bonds, and the new Italian government seems to understand this very well…
Italian Cabinet Undersecretary Giancarlo Giorgetti said he hopes the European Central Bank’s quantitative easing program will be extended to help protect the country from financial speculators.
Italy also needs to be credible to help shield itself, Giorgetti said in an interview with newspaper Il Messaggero. After the Genoa bridge disaster, the country may boost its extra spending request to the European Union, he said.
Signs of trouble continue to erupt in the United States as well. The trade war is taking a huge toll on businesses of all sizes, and sometimes it is rural America that is being hurt the most.
For instance, the looming closure of the Element Electronics factory in Winnsboro, South Carolina would be absolutely crippling for that community…
TVs at the plant are made out of components that are imported from China, and the tariffs make assembling the TVs here a losing proposition, the company has said. The company is fighting for a waiver but is bracing for shutdown.
Winnsboro is the seat of Fairfield County, where a third of the population lives in poverty. Unemployment among its nearly 23,000 residents is second highest in the state, and, despite periodic rebounds, the population has fallen steadily over the past century.
“This is going to be a ghost town,” Winnsboro resident Herbert Workman said.
In this day and age, we are trained to be optimistic, and that can be a good thing.
But there comes a point when blind optimism causes us to lose touch with reality, and many believe that we have already crossed that threshold.

Or, and Luxemburg’s former divisive leader, Jean-Claude Juncker once said: “When it becomes serious, you have to lie.”
Buttcrack of doom had some pretty good lists.
I guess by , Global economic leaders you mean the FED ? Just learned , Nakita Kruschev, real name , Solomon Pearlmutter , First sec.of com. Party for ten years . And guess his religious affiliation?

Now they have good excuses. Buckle up, buttercup:
I sincerely hope that Michael Cohen is able, as he earlier stated, to take a bullet for Donald Trump.
Micheal Cohen did something amazing, he plead guilty to a crime that does not exist.
There is no CNN or MSNBC lawyer that can quote the law that Cohen just plead guilty to.
This is much like General Flynn who pled guilty to a crime with no victim. Much
like pleading guilty to a murder where the victim isn’t just alive, but he is sitting in the courtroom.
Get this. Michael Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, worked for the Clintons. So, somebody who said he would “take a bullet” for Donald Trump is now being defended by a Clinton democrat attorney.
a lot of Clinton direct and indirect associates “took a bullet” to one degree or another…just saying.
I’m still waiting for this collapse. Been in poverty before know what it’s all about. I’m confident I will thrive. those who have always had it all have a rude awakening coming.
Where did all of the money go? The monopoly board weeding out the big losers, guard your zinc penny loafers.
The fun is just beginning.
Part of Talmudic reasoning is that you can do anything you like as long as you tell your victim before hand.
6.3 quake in Alaska. Pace is picking up.
I’d like to see Snyder’s investment portfolio to see if it reflects his predictions in this article and how he is addressing them.
18. Hence the saying: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
Sun Tzu “Attack by Strategem precept 18”
Those who are not devout Christians are not even aware of who the enemy is. And only those who believe in the real manifestation of malevolence incarnate as Lucifer understand that he is the Ultimate Enemy of all of Mankind and even our own personal nemesis.
What is worse though, is being ignorant of who we are as well. When that is the case, we are our own worst enemy. Without acknowledging the kingship and authority of YHWH and His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ (Yeshua ha Mashiach) then we are rebels…helpless rebels. And Lucifer being the chief leader of the rebels, you then become under his dominion.
If you are an atheist or an unbeliever in Jesus Christ, then you neither know yourself nor know the genuine enemy… who is Lucifer.
A third of the Heavenly Host, the angels, fell with Lucifer. They are immensely powerful. You as a human being and being unsaved have no weapon to oppose them. You are entirely defenseless. It doesn’t matter what your defensive and offensive capabilities are. You on your own will fail and be annihilated. And then once you perish will be devoid of Hope and totally under Lucifer’s dominion.
And by abusing your free will, you chose that fate…and so while you presume you are prepared, you have not prepared whatsoever.
You foolishly focus on divisions among humanity while the ones who stir this hatred up are human minions of Lucifer. You give credence to Lucifer’s propaganda. You fell for easy answers and blamed some other human beings. How dumb.
12How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Sin begins with pride…stupid outrageous pride. Only a total fool imagines themselves as powerful as YHWH. Yet this is precisely what atheists do when they imagine they are masters of their own fate!
The actual Hebrew name for Lucifer is Helel and it translates as shining one but called a star of the morning (Morning Star).
The word weaken actually is chalash in the Hebrew and it doesn’t just mean weaken. Oh no, what it actually means is to be laid prostrate ie flat on the ground with your face in the dust.
Lucifer is depicted as ugly but he was created to be a glittering beauty and yet abuses his power to utterly lays out his enemies in total weakness , even entire nations, until they lie prostrate in the dust. And then when dead and unsaved, he commands you and tortures you.
What is Lucifer’s chief power? He is the accuser and chief adversary of humanity. Lucifer knowns every sin you have ever made and will use it against you. On your own, you cannot stand against Lucifer.
Imagine your worst enemy who knows every evil deed you ever thought of or actually committed. And not only that, but what is worse, is allowed to torture you when dead if you are unsaved through Jesus Christ.
What does Lucifer do? He hates YHWH and Jesus Christ and since your only help is through Jesus Christ, Lucifer tries to convince you that Jesus and YHWH could never love a miserable evil sinner like YOU. And if you believe Lucifer, he wins dominion over you.
Lucifer is the Father of Lies. It’s true that you are miserable and evil and a sinner, but that is precisely why Jesus came to rescue YOU.
Only by the name of Jesus Christ and by being saved by the grace of Jesus Christ, can you stand against his many supernatural and human minons.
Only Jesus Christ and the Heavenly Host led by Michael can defeat Lucifer. You have no power to withstand him on your own.
All of what you say is true, but only a few of those calling themselves Christians will understand it and point it out to those who do not.
But many who knowingly (and often even unknowingly) follow Satan will understand it and put it to use against those calling themselves Christian to promote and convert them to join his side without their even knowing it has been done.
The time of the end is growing closer, and Satan knows this and wants to take as many as possible with him into destruction when it comes.
From the BibleHub Website: “This site is a great way to link any verse on your site to an instant menu of 25 versions!”
25 Versions? Why 25 and not just 1 version of the Bible?
Is it any wonder why some Christians are confused and mixed up to this day?
Which version are you using or do you just cherry pick in between these 25 versions? It is for this reason, why modern day Theologians can’t agree 100% from each other.
It is why a Baptist may dislike a Catholic for their belief or vice versa. There should be no confusion when it comes to the Bible, but this is what happens when different people attempt to translate it’s meanings to their understandings.
I use the King James version almost exclusively as it’s well known to be the most authoritative version. I also will point out the Hebrew and Greek.
The fact of the matter is the Bible is the most authenticated book in the world, with thousands of primary manuscripts as papri. No other book comes close. And general gist of verses are 99% in agreement across versions.
Well a dope who slavishly worships an antichrist like Hitler is hardly someone worthy of trusting. What a pitiful sychophant worshipping a mass murder!
“The fact of the matter is the Bible is the most authenticated book in the world.”
It’s not a fact, when the Bible has been twisted and manipulated into different meanings (25 Versions). If the Bible was authentic, there should only be one(1) Version.
Christianity should be (1)One Religion, not 25+ different sects of it.
If there were 4 Theologians in a room discussing a topic.
I guarantee all 4 Theologians will have a different translation of said topic. That in itself does not make it authentic because of interpretation.
“No other book comes close”
There is the Sumerian Texts which is much older than the Bible. These are interesting text, which to this day gets highly ignored, Why?
Maybe it is because there was more than one God, they had hundreds of different kinds of Gods. For that reason I believe, is why they “classify” Sumerian Text as being in the group of Mythology.
Oddly enough, the stories in the Sumerian Text also very much resemble some stories in the Bible. When a person takes time to study other Religions outside of Christianity. You’ll find yourself questioning the very thing you believe in. First, you have to put yourself at ease and have an open mind. It’s intriguing to find many correlations between all the main religions.
Take the time to investigate – instead of clinging onto only the one belief system that you involve yourself in.
You’ll be surprised in what you learn.
How insane. Even experts admit that the characters in the Sumerian texts are self-described as DEMONS! Look through descriptions of the religion and you will see experts using the word demon as an attribute over and over.
Have you ever taken a class in which the Sumerian religion was discussed? I had such a class and not taught by a Christian. He described the Sumerian gods as crushing human believers.
The first benevolent montheistc religion was Judaism and why it is taught in world civilization classes.
Just some history that is interesting to me. The people that first traveled to the new world that became the U.S. had a bible that was called the Geneva Bible. That was the original bible of this country. I have a copy of it. It is difficult to read because of the old English. Many of the church of England did not like this bible because of the scholars comments on the side of many of the verses. The protestant’s did not like the king James version because the Roman Catholic Church at the time used it for what they believed was unbiblical beliefs.
Strangely to me they swapped to the King James Version after being in the new world for about 70 years. This is interesting to me.
The original Roman Catholic Church murdered many people for attempting to translate the bible so that everyone could read it. The king of England agreed with the pope on this issue. That was until the pope would not grant him permission to divorce his wife. That is when the church of England was formed. Just interesting history to me.
Excellent post, Mike in VA.
Thanks for sharing that historical story.
Among other things, the usage of language changes over time.
That’s the reason the original KJV or the Pilgrim’s Geneva are so hard to understand for almost everyone today.
There is also a recent rash of new translations (both made and proposed to be made) that are intended to “interpret” the original Hebrew and Greek testaments to conform to modern political agendas and the populist moral standards professed by the Leftists to change their meaning to something they are more in agreement with.
Trump finally tweeted about the crisis in South Africa. And the Wall Street journal responded with a defense of the black racist communists who are killing White south African farmers and stealing their land. The WSJ quoted the communist line that they haven’t really killed that many Whites, yet. They misquoted the percentage of farmland stilled owned by Whites. The WSJ claims that over 70% of the land is still owned by Whites. In reality it’s already down to about 25%. The WSJ says if the Whites don’t like the offer from the communists they can appeal the amount, to the communists. The government is offering 10% of the face value. If they refuse the offer, the government just takes the land. Pretty good appeal process, right? The President of SA is quoted as saying that he will slit the throat of White culture. Sounds like he belong with Antifa. For those of you that don’t get it yet, this is coming to every country in the West. The Boers lived in SA since the 1600’s. They moved there when SA was sparsely populated. Most of the blacks that live there now, migrated down from the north. If this land confiscation is justified, then you had better look in the mirror. You live in America. This land was taken from the natives. You’re going to have your land confiscated also. For some history, there is only one place in the world where the original inhabitants still live on their own land. That is a small remote place in China. Everyone else is living on land that their ancestors migrated to ages ago. The hate you. They want your stuff. They want you dead. Act accordingly.
Expect a great deal of famine and violence coming to South African in the near future, as already happened to Rhodesia after it fell and went against the Whites who had had brought prosperity to it.
Translation: “I believe that the stock market is about to crash.”
Probably explains why I am having a hell of a time, trying to get my cash out of my TD Ameritrade accounts at the moment.
Him is correct its a world wide demonizing of the White Race. and the 3ews are behind it. Call me a Racist I don’t care.
OG, you’re not racist. You’re merely ethnocentric. And that’s a good thing.
OG – in these modern times, telling the Truth is considered racist. Take pride in the truth, feel sad for those who are unwilling to investigate factual evidence that surrounds them.
Face it. The globalists have stirred up such racial division that it’s open season on white South Africans. Not only have Dutch Afrikanners been raped, extorted, and murdered, now it’s been sanctioned by the communist government as well as taking their land. This is land that never belonged to anyone else. It was worked by the blood, sweat, and tears of Dutch settlers.
It will happen in America too. We already see the demonization of those with European ancestry.
Satan laughs. As long as you focus on divisions between human beings, you are not fighting Lucifer, demons, and his human minions.
If you’re a Nazi lover, you’re already part of Lucifer’s minions.
If you’re a crazed African Nationalist Congress supporter, you’re also a part of lucifer’s minions as well.
“Face it. The globalists have stirred up such racial division that it’s open season on white South Africans.”
Unfortunately, you are not acknowledging who the majority of these Globalist are. This is another area where you can do some research, and it won’t take you long to figure it out.
You for the most part see the Big Picture of what is going on Politically. You find the big names of these globalist, find their origins of their belief system, and you’ll find what the problem is. You are stuck in that picture mode of 480 analog letterbox format. Broaden your horizons to the digital Widescreen of 1080.
Practically everything we have learned and been taught is, and has been a lie. Nobody likes to be lied to, and you can stop that cycle by doing some simple research.
In today’s world, Truth can be very ugly and hard to accept. There was a day I was where you are now. Digging down, and finding the Truth will without a doubt find yourself being extremely upset and angry.
But it must be done, it must be done, so you don’t have to live in the fake world that has been set up for you from the time you were born.
Once you break the barrier of acknowledging the Truth.
You will soon realize how much you don’t have in common with the rest of society. You’ll see a lot more sheeple than ever before. From co-workers to family members, you’ll notice how programmed the majority of people are in this world and you’ll be asking yourself – “how did I not see this before now?”
You will feel overwhelming outnumbered when it comes to other people, and may feel isolated and lost. Accept it for what it is, because it is better to be deprogrammed and knowing the truth, than to be just another indoctrinated person.
Again, have an open mind and do not allow your belief system block you from the truth. Question everything and don’t allow yourself to be bias on subject matter.
I don’t feel overwhelmed whatsoever. Jesus is my Master. I will never need advice from a Hitler fanatic and Satan worshipper.
1Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; 2But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. 3But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 5For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:1-6
You who disbelieve in Jesus Christ as blinded by the god of this world who is Lucifer (in Hebrew Helel the shining one, the star of the morning).
10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Who is this ruler of the darkness of the world?
The Greek word is kosmokratoras. It means the cosmic powers of darkness. It’s not just evil but in the Greek the word is ponerias meaning evil that is birthed in pain.
Here is the genuine enemy who is the architect of humanity’s doom. It is Lucifer.
You blame flesh and blood, when it’s the Prince of Darkness that is your nemesis.
Bigotry is incompatible with Christianity. That said, there is only one mediator and advocate and that is Jesus Christ. No one comes to YHWH except through Jesus. No one.
It’s not bigotry, but a realization that Lucifer uses other religions to spread evil in the world.
There is no room for racism in Christianity. Instead witnessing and evangelism is about sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all.
Hate is Lucifer’s weapon. If you are full of hate, Lucifer already owns your soul.
Try this. Open up some books and read about the religious practices of these pagan idol worshippers in ancient times. Their priests and adherents practiced cross-dressing, homosexuality, monsterous unmentionable abominations with sexual practices, cannibalism, child and adult sacrifices, forced prostitution, etc.
These are demonic practices. You will find them just about everywhere except in the Israelite religion and Christianity.
Be a good critical thinker and look them up. You will be shocked.
Yhwh in Hebrew is yahovah. God the creator. His son is yahshewa. God the saviour. Jesus is a man made name change to stop salvation. There is only one name by which man can be saved..yahshewa. not Jesus. When i can someone by a different name and insist that I’m correct they get angry. Why do you think you can change his name and think it doesn’t matter? Yahshewa said he come only for the lost sheep of Israel. Paul said we must be grafted into the olive tree . No more difference between jew and gentile. Yahshua said we are the seed of Abraham. We should have the faith of Abraham ..why..what did he do. ? He kept the commandments. Statutes and laws.the torah laws. Yahusha said if you are Abraham seed you should do the works of Abraham and that includes keeping the torah. The apostles kept the torah. Paul also a rabbi says to keep the law. They came to yahshua and said..didn’t we prophecy in your name, cast out demons, and do mighty works. And he replied depart from me you workers of iniquity or translate correctly means workers of lawlessness. They didn’t keep torah and were rejected. Romans 8:4 the carnal mind is an enemy of God because it is not subject to the law and nether indeed can it be. So if you are not keeping the law you have a carnal mind and Will be rejected from the kingdom. 1st john 3:4 what is sin??? The transgression of the law. Christianity teaches we don’t live under the law and it sure shows. The Pentecostal churches are the only ones that i know of who practice casting of demons etc and they didn’t make it. They are lawless! The law is not done away with because yahshua said not till heaven and earth pass away. Christianity today is failing .the Pentecostal church has the highest rate of divorce. We must separate from these harlot churches who teach lies. Rev. 18:4 come out of her my people to escape her plagues. They are going back to the Catholic church where it all originated.
There are innumerable theological issues with your post. At the very least you need to write in clear sentences and with Biblical references. What is wrote is not defensible from a Christian point of view.
From the beginning, you erred as scholars over and over have stated that Jehovah or any similar variation is incorrect. The most likely candidate for a general name for YHWH is Yahweh. There are many names by the way.
If you are serious about your Christian faith, you should start again in a far more disciplined manner as you began in error and your post is replete with errors.
Regarding Jesus, the most likely Hebrew names are Yeshua or Yehoshua.
Jesus is the Anglicized, actually Greek name, which is not the true Hebrew name.
We can thank the homosexual King James, and his bible for that.
Some prefer to call him by his true name.
Leave it to mankind, to screw everything up.
The early church “fathers” omitted certain books out of the bible for their own reasons.
The Book of Infancy told of Jesus killing other children.
We can’t have that if we are trying to start a movement or build a church.
The Book of Enoch was too scary for the sheep.
Too much alien technology to explain and digest. Too much of that fallen angels stuff.
There’s a lot thats not in the regulated bible.
“I’ve got a whole lot of cash on the sidelines.”
Translation: “Margins. Not literally my own cash.”
We need our employees to “take every opportunity to restrict non-essential travel” in order to cut costs.
Translation: We will not do anything, in the tangible world, which is not already subsidized. Also, count the toilet paper. Is drinking water on the premises strictly necessary, or does the govt pay for it.
“I hope that the quantitative easing program will go forward.”
Translation: All fractional reserve banking is quantitative easing, whether at the level of consumer debt or the World Bank.
Is vital to keep that you re-read the article and ensure that it does what surplus it to finish.
