Global Collapse Accelerating Buy Gold Now – Chris Martenson

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Futurist and economic researcher Chris Martenson says a collapse is “a process, not an event.” Martenson contends the long awaited global collapse, on many fronts, has not only started, but is picking up speed. Martenson says, “Our prediction at PeakProsperity.com is these collapse trends, we have been following for 10 years now, are accelerating and continuing. None of them are reversing at this point in time. These will impact people’s future in a huge way. Environmentally, we see these signs, but we also have $245 trillion of debt in the global economy. We have been accelerating that debt cycle as if we could just keep that trend going forever—we can’t. So, what we see are all these unsustainable trends converging. They are going to happen . . . and people need to be ready.”

Martenson lays out the case to blame central banks for much of the geopolitical and economic friction in the world today. Martenson says, “The economic pie is not expanding anymore. It’s kind of stagnant. So, if you have one tiny group taking their fair share and the pie isn’t growing, it means they are taking from somebody else. This is the essence of central banking. They don’t create wealth, they redistribute wealth. When the Federal Reserve crams rates to zero, the savers lose out, but lose to who? The winners and losers are being picked by the central banks, and they have decided that the .01% should be the winners in this story and everybody else should be the losers. . . . Central bank policies have really benefited the elites at the expense of everybody else. This brings up the most important point and that is central banks are not our friends. They are redistributive organizations.”

Martenson also says, “Our view is if we get into a war that it will be so devastating, there really won’t be a recovery from it.” As for the elite, Martenson says, “It’s time to panic. . . . They have thrown in the towel, they have caved and are ready to go back to the print-a-thon thing. That is concerning because the financial world can’t even manage stopping their bond purchases, let alone reversing them without them panicking . . . . When a central bank can’t even flatten out their balance sheet purchases, you should be panicking.”

Central banks cannot stop the money printing without the whole system blowing up. Maybe that is why gold is going up? Martenson says, “I believe it is. . . . I buy gold because gold is the only form of money that is not simultaneously someone else’s liability. We are talking about a world so saddled with debt, I am not sure where all the liabilities lie. I don’t trust . . . the accounting of major corporations. I don’t trust what derivatives will do in a crisis. . . . This is the ‘Everything Bubble.’ What happens when it bursts? We don’t know. So, gold, to me, is the thing I want to own and hold when you have a systemic crisis.”

    Greg, do you think Q is real? Do your guests think Q is real? I don’t believe I’ve heard you mention Q. I’d like to believe that Intelligent patriots are guiding Trump’s hand behind the scene.

    • Greg Hunter

      Brian,
      I think “Q” is real but there have been imposters. I don’t report on “Q” because I don’t want to mislead people by getting it wrong. Other people report on “Q” and do a much better job than I can.
      Greg

    • al

      I had my reservations on Q but it was proven correct. Too correct. I was worried because Q was leaking information and the wrong eyes were focusing on Q. There have been no posts since Jan. 13. My take is Q was told to stop.

    • Tea For One

      I suspect Q is a disinformation campaign… while I once believed Q to be genuine, I recently watched a Q video that painted Ed Snowden as a traitor. That sealed it for me.

      • Morpheus

        Me too Tea. So much promised, a lot of booms, and not much to show for it. Someone who is disenchanted with Q and losing faith in Trump is seething Frog. Good YT channel and calls it like he sees it.

        https://youtu.be/jMhMXOv2EZc

        • Lynn

          I believe Snowden is not one of the good guys. I’ve also read they are plants for the deep state

      • Freebrezer

        T – I too think Q might all be deception/psyops from the deep bowls of the evil, internal workings of the CIA/FBI … the depravity at the top of our CIA and FBI is unfathomable. Example – CIA directer Brennan – where is/was his allegiance – communist/Muslim convert or what? … He was a fundamental player on team Obama who was going to fundamentally change America … and what better rouge to run then give the opposition data to make them think that they could/are going to win, when all along they know it is BS. The psyops aligns that the good guys are winning, it placates the small, intelligent, opposition into thinking their good guys are making a difference, and most importantly it takes advantage and abuses the most fundamental human emotion – HOPE. Is Q real, I have no idea. I do know that the evil globalist at the top of the the USA government, EU, etc are entrenched and want to control us, and have unfathomable dark research and money to do so. Or Q is a group from deep in military intelligence (true Americans) fighting to save a free America!

    • Will

      Good grief. There are less bugs. There are less birds. Buy gold. Oh and buy his magic snake oil too.

  2. William Stanley

    Mr. Hunter,
    I’m not sure if it’s fear or greed; but I’m buying more gold tomorrow.

    • Twox2

      Call it “freed”.

    • Rich

      Q seems to be a psyop

      • William Stanley

        Rich,
        “Q” fascinates me. He/she/it is clearly a psyop, but it’s really unclear to me which side is running it. I like Greg’s take that there is or was a real Q that is/was a good-guy psyop, but that the black hats associated with the Deep-State Globalists have countered by posting disinformation under the “Q” name.
        The insinuation that Ed Snowden was planted in NSA by CIA may have been just such a case. That instance might have involved CIA defaming itself in order to undercut NSA’s (and Snowden’s) credibility by falsely claiming that Snowden was under CIA’s control. Doing that would serve to discredit Snowden and his revelations generally, and specifically about CIA’s ability to make emails falsely appear to have been sent from certain sources. Confusing the issue that way could serve to hide the documented fact that WikiLeaks got its DNC info from someone (probably Seth Rich) via a direct download to an attached device such as a thumb drive and not from Russian hacking. (the download speed associated with the info is inconsistent with hacking over the internet).
        Of course the false and discredited meme of “Russian hacking” was once important to the false Deep-State/Hillary/Mueller narrative that President Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election. While that meme has been discredited via multiple other revelations, the Deep State (e.g., CIA and Mueller) has a continuing interest in clouding its role in the whole affair. Hence the attack on Snowden’s (and WikiLeak’s) credibility . . . even at the cost of further undermining the Deep State’s own credibility. That was a low-cost trade because CIA’s, MI6’s et al’s credibility was already in tatters in the eyes of those who follow such matters.

    Excellent guest!

    There is also a world ground water crisis affecting both the US and many countries around the world. Sorry, this is USA Today 1 Hour long – but it is worth watching it.

    PUMPED DRY: The Global Crisis of Vanishing Groundwater
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjsThobgq7Q&t=0s

    I received independent confirmation from friends this is a REAL problem in Morocco and California…. and very well known by farmers!

    I believe one of your guests mentioned investing in water investments as a very long term investment several years ago. Now, I don’t think I would invest in water stocks as I would fear civil forfeiture by the government when wells start to run dry, and people get thirsty and crops die.

    • FC

      I invested in water 25 years ago when I drilled a 367 foot bore through solid basalt rock on my property pumping up wonderfully tasting spring water.
      Here’s hoping that it keeps flowing.

  6. paul ...

    As Chris Martenson says: “Central banks cannot stop the money printing without the whole system blowing up” … this means one day “soon” silver will be selling for what the price of gold is today … how soon? … I’m thinking probably about the end of 2023 … https://hubertmoolman.files.wordpress.com/2019/01/silver-long-term-fractal.png?w=700

    • Freebrezer

      Paul – if silver is selling for the price of gold, can you say hello Venezuela! That means the system collapsed or is collapsing. Unfortunately, every thing I see says we are moving in that direction.

    • paul ...

      The Fed effectively said today it will begin QE (to save the world) … the stock market soared (just like the Zimbabwe stock market did back when it did the same thing) … the dollar fell … gold took off as expected ( https://www.kitco.com/charts/popup/au24hr3day.html ) … and so did silver ( https://www.kitco.com/charts/livesilver.html )!

      • paul ...

        Two Year Yields tumble as we near a “death cross” implying rates will fall further … https://zh-prod-1cc738ca-7d3b-4a72-b792-20bd8d8fa069.storage.googleapis.com/s3fs-public/styles/inline_image_desktop/public/inline-images/2019-01-30_11-29-43.jpg?itok=JXEIgxwu

        • paul ...

          Looks like (with interest rates falling along with the dollar) gold should easily break above the $1400 dollar resistance level … https://www.kitco.com/charts/popup/au3650nyb_.html … and once gold breaks above $1400 … over $2000 per ounce gold is an easy bet!!

          • paul ...

            Why is gold “an easy bet” for coming back into prominence in our economic system? … because by introducing gold back into the financial system (the way wolves were reintroduced back into Yellowstone) will cull the overpopulated bankster herd overgrazing the economic landscape!! … those who doubt gold will ever be returned into our economic system should listen to this very interesting presentation … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjhLp8AHAYc

            • paul ...

              Those who doubt gold and silver being the answer to our economic problems must look at precious metal coins from a different perspective “the edge” … “three.” The front (obverse), back (reverse) and… the edge …from this angle a person can begin to look more deeply at a given subject … to see “both sides” of the coin … and will ultimately find that gold is “not a useless relic” … and that “silver will turn out to be gold on steroids”!!

              • paul ...

                Let’s look at the edge of things … and go back 65 years … over that time span the Fed went from rate hikes to rate cuts 13 times … and the average gain in gold during 11 of those periods was to just about double … we are currently at $1300 (two times that is $2600) … gold “usually” begins to make its move higher about three to four months “after the last rate hike” … but this time may be different because it is very clear the Fed has shifted policy … so gold is breaking out earlier then usual … with the probabilities for gold reaching $2600 being about 85% … right now seems to be an excellent time to be an “aggressive buyer” of precious metals (like William above is doing) to avoid missing the train!!

      good chart, Paul …. will be interesting to see it climb, and what events of hysteria accompany it, as the masses of people are usually into conservative assets (stocks, bonds, real estate) than PMs

    • Morpheus

      Doubt it. Silver should be a good investment 10X i hope. If it goes up too much higher it will bankrupt a bunch of companies. Too many industrial /tech uses. If it goes to 1K then cell phones will be $1500+. That’s also why i doubt oil will go to $250 or $500 per barrel thousands of products use oil. You need a neutral reserve asset with limited use…ie gold. That’s why central banks are hoarding it. Do as they do not as they say.

    Collapse of Western society and civilization is coming slowly but surely. Efforts to prevent the collapse through state sponsored and managed mind control, social engineering and ruthless mob control in a global police state will only delay this for awhile. History shows, with few exceptions, that popular liberation movements, labor strikes and civil wars simply replace one oligarchy with another, so they are a waste of time, effort, lives and resources. Furthermore, the collapse of the control systems of this civilization is necessary to make way for a new, transparent, very different and much better society. Rather than mass protests, labor strikes and civil wars, our precious time, effort and resources are better spent creating the foundations of a new and revolutionary alternative society, ready for the next age of humanity. That’s what the Good News of the Kingdom was really all about.

    Chris respects natural limits and responsibility.

    We recovered from WWI and WWII because of very limited use of nukes and population levels were approx. 2 and 2.5 billion respectively. Now there are at least 5 countries with hydrogen bombs and population levels are in excess of 9 billion and growing in excess of 100 million a year.

  10. Jerry

    Greg,
    It has been apparent since 2008 that the Federal Reserve Bank decided to fund the global economy by bankrupting the United States.https://www.federalreserve.gov/monetarypolicy/bst_liquidityswaps.htm

    You will find this statement fundamentally supported by the Federal Reserve money velocity chart, which shows liquidity in the system approaching zero. The globalist can pump up the numbers all they want, but when money stops circulating inside the exchange system, the entire global economy collapses. In short the globalist bankrupted the United States to prop up the global economy. Even Ronald Reagan figured this out when he formed the grace commission to find out where American tax money was really going.

    Knowing this, the BRICS nations, with the help of former treasury secraterues Hank Paulsen and Timothy Giethner created a new alternate replacement system, which is already operating inside the global banking system. When money velocity reaches zero with the U.S. reserve currency, they will reset the entire system, using gold backed yuan, The next money velocity report that comes out in March should tell us where we are in the transition, provided we don’t have a major false flag event between now and then?

    • Morpheus

      Unfortunately some really smart folks think the Fed played their part really well today. They basically said that rates hikes are more or less paused and QT can be phased out. Uber dovish. This way the collapse can be blamed on what TPTB hate….populism, Trumps deplorables , and the trade wars Trump started. And in 24 hours some fallout can begin when trade talk goes south as China is here for high level talks. BTW these same folks also think DJT is part of the plan as he seems to have taken full credit for the market upswings. Again just today touting the 400+ rise. So Fed backs ff to help the market, but the trade war and populist policies will be to blame if and when the fail. After 10 years of QE and low rates they will try and shift the blame, and the MSM will be in all in.

  11. al

    Yes.. I had that same little voice tell me last Month to buy gold. That same little voice that whispered to me in 2008.

    As for the Global Collapse, I guess Chris is talking about an ecological change which sparks an economic change? I don’t quite get the correlation. Maybe it’s a cosmic shift thing? Surely the Sun is kind of volatile lately and Earth’s pole shift isn’t helping. Some of these extinction events are natural, the Earth has had many extinction cycles before. Yes, Monstersanto is a part of that, whatever they put in jet fuel for chem trails may contribute as well. Ocean pollution has an effect and let’s not forget Fukushima, that nightmare is not over but the ENEMY MEDIA is quiet on that front.
    The Earth is 4.5 Billion years old, you think we had this problem before?

    I WELCOME THIS DELICIOUS WORLDWIDE EXTINCTION EVENT…
    Davos pointed to it. We are witnessing the extinction of the elite monsters and their whore media mouthpiece… Governments and laws will change accordingly.
    There’s one animal I want to see extinct forever. Elitus Monsteronius.

    Greg: there are far more obvious reasons that life forms are disappearing other than unsustainable growth, whether population wise or economically. How about the radiation from Fukushima that has decimated Pacific marine life? Thus very few seagulls along the Pacific coast. There used to be millions; now their food sources have disappeared. Same with starfish, salmon, orcas, etc. How about all the pesticides, especially Roundup which is finally getting investigations and court appearances. Not to forget geoengineering, especially “chemtrails” which deposits 1000s of tons of toxic and neurologically damaging barium, aluminum, coal ash, etc which not only covers food crops but also infiltrates the water supply.

    The goal and the agenda is depopulation through incremental genocide.

    The next big threat is 5G. Learn about it. Fight it locally. It produces microwave radiation that slowly, but surely will fry your brain cells. The elites and their minions are sending many 1000s of satellites into space that will cover the US with 5G radiation. The majority of the poulation will be senile within 10 years.

    • Tea For One

      Absolutely!!!

      Mr. Trump has authorized MIC contractors like Boeing to put into low-orbit 20,000 5G satellites within the next 2-3 years, many already up there.

      WHO classified EMF as a Class IIb carcinogen in 2011.

      Fukushima, glyphosate, 2,4-D on our food, fluoridated drinking water, geoengineering, vaccines… what have any of the administrations done to stop this?

      A- nothing

    Greg,

    I was scratching my head listening to the elementary school explanation of the yellow vests movement by Chris Martenson and asking my self what is it that will make you guys get it? what does it take for you to see?

    Yellow vests is a revolt against the elites? what a BS…!
    The elites are funding the yellow vests same way they funded the Arab Spring.
    The agenda is working like tic toc exactly as per plan.

    Who funded every immigrant came to EU by boats where the cost was 3000 Euros per person?….Who paid that? and why?

    Who is destabilizing Venezuela to feed the caravans with youth heading north bound and paying them all the way to the border?

    I will step on a mine field by saying what am saying but I have to , because it is the engine behind what you guys do not see including the guest here.

    The master plan of the elites is creating the great kingdom of Israel as a super power.
    They have to depopulate, to do so and they have to empty the land around Israel from the river to the river, Hence “Arab Spring”

    “Arab Spring” would serve another important function like sending the waves of immigrants to EU (notice that NONE WENT EAST BOUND….NONE..!!!!!) that immigration waves will destabilize EU and would get it into “SLOW BURN” since you can bet your money the elites WILL NEVER USE THERMONUCLEAR option for depopulation, they want the earth intact.

    COPY PAST to South America and this is what is in the cards for US , it started with attacking Venezuela bonds and currency, crushing the oil down so they starve and destabilize hence the waves of immigration you are seeing in EU is happening in this continent towards US.

    The end game in the elites mind is SLOW BURN of the west, then they will SLOW BURN the east afterwards so the final outcome materializes.

    They will inherit EARTH without any nuclear contamination and the new super power emerges in M.E. from river to river.

    It is CRYSTAL CLEAR Greg …..and you are consumed with the noise …!

        The destabilization and soon to be overthrow will affect Brazil, Colombia, Trinidad/Tobago, and other neighbors. The follow-on destabilization of Nicaragua and overthrow will affect Costa Rica, Honduras, El Sal, and Guatemala.

        The refugees will head north from Central America through Mexico. Mexico will fail also.

        Trump sees this coming with the economic reset. He is trying to get out front and secure the border before the complete collapse.

        Add in the fact that large cities such as Los Angeles, Phoenix, Houston, Chicago, and many others have substantial illegal populations and criminal elements which could riot.

        Go to a gun show here in Phoenix. You will see many Spanish-only speaking young men interested in ammo and guns.

        Remember Fast and Furious. Granted it was straw buyers involved in Eric Holder’s operation to move weapons to cartels in Mexico, there are straw buyers purchasing weapons and ammo for illegals here in Arizona and I suspect in Texas. Common sense. The illegals are arming themselves in case there is trouble. I would be if I was them.

        • Mohammad

          I agree with the dominos effect planned for US .
          Same happened in M.E. when they destabilized Iraq that brought immigrants to Syria and that fueled the civil war there.
          What I disagree is that Trump is trying to stop it. If he was sincere about it he would hit the cabals in Wall Street that are funding this crap. Actually to the contrary , he is embolden them , and worse , he is bringing to his team the most notorious figure known for toppling governments so you can be assured he is actively destabilizing Venezuela:

          Have you checked your Standing Wave Ratio? Maybe the problem is that your antenna’s impedance is mismatched with that of your transceiver. Just a thought.

        • William Stanley

          Another common problem is loose connections. Have you checked your’s? If that doesn’t work, you might check out whether all of your components are properly grounded. I’m hoping that your problem can be fixed with a simple feed-line choke.

          • William Stanley

            Mohammed,
            To avoid any error in communication here: a “feed-line” choke is a type of line filter that can reduce noise in radio transmissions (and thus increase the signal-to-noise ratio).

    I agree with what is being stated in the interview (another good one, thank you Greg for all of these). But still I have yet to see anyone really say how the banking cartel will stop doing what they’re doing. Short of multiple countries simultaneously refusing to accept the US Dollar, which I think we all know leads to immediate war, why would they stop printing to infinity? They control the mechanism and have no direct oversight to obstruct they. And before anyone says the people will revolt, that would take another 5-10 years before we saw any action. Unfortunately, as bad as I want to be wrong, I see more of the same for the immediate future. We’ve been waiting nearly a Decade for the system to collapse and stacking on things like Gold (which I have done) did not (yet, may it start today!) yield anywhere near the results people like J Rickards has been forecasting.

    Thanks Greg, another great interview. Seems like the geoengineering”chemtrails” is what is killing the trees, insects, plankton and everything above them in the chain. God is going to intervene soon to stop this destruction, and implement His plan of redemption. Christ is the only way to salvation out of this fallen world.

    Great interview Greg. Chris Martenson is one of those people who qualifies as the smartest guy in the room and he knows how to communicate with folks who aren’t as smart.

    It may be that energy and economic policy should be in the political realm. Some will differ however, and say free markets should rule and would do a better job. Unfortunately, the environment has been totally politicized and now when we hear about how bad global warming will be from “scientists”, we question whether or not they’re real objective scientists or whether they are simply paid whores of politicians, saying what they need to say to get their grant funding.

    Rigging temperature data to show temps higher than they really were may have been good for one grant check, but it may have irreparably damaged the reputation of science in general. Who’s honest and who says what they need say to get funding?

    So what’s causing the heat wave in Australia? Is it global warming, climate change or Chem Trails? How can we trust the answer when one of offered? One major issue is that we can no longer trust politicized scientists to report honestly, so we don’t respond to valid warnings when real scientists issue those reports. That’s a problem.

    • Freebrezer

      Russ – Right on point! Can not trust who is an honest Scientists or who is pushing propaganda … is it real data, is it for grant $$$, or is it for political purpose? Boy does politics poison everything. Per your comment “So what’s causing the major heat wave in Australia” also include what is causing the most severe cold wave in the US mid west? Records are falling to records back in the 1880’s where I live. I always have to keep two things in mind – 1st) Human are destroying and changing environments all over the planet … The consequences like insect destruction etc are scary (what unfolds per the unintended consequences?) … 2nd) Climate change ( change on a world scale) and Environmental destruction are different. #1 might contribute to #2 or it might inconsequential. And how much do we just not know? Great picture to keep in mind https://www.universetoday.com/65356/how-many-earths-can-fit-in-the-sun/ when contemplating man made vs. the cycle of the sun!

    Unfortunately man is on a path of self destruction where they wrote theiur own epitath:

    Even a government military website forecasts major depopulation by 2025:

    Man seems to think he can write his own story but his~story(history) has already been written:

    Revelation 11:18 And the nations were wroth, and thy wrath came, and the time of the dead to be judged, and the time to give their reward to thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and to them that fear thy name, the small and the great; and to destroy them that destroy the earth.

    The next decade will bring our Father’s climactic end:

      Our job until He returns is to ‘Occupy till I come’ (Greek translation: take care of business). Luke 19:13

      His parable was to take 1 pound of silver and turn it into 10 pounds. His analogy was to spread the message of the cross. I’m sorry but it is done with Bibles, not bombs. In 28 years of war the US has shed so much innocent blood. The US’s decades of slow bleeding out has reached the point of hemorrhaging.

      We are so spiritually lost that to even suggest Jesus’ teachings of non-aggression will draw a wrath of anger from professing ‘Christians’. I can’t tell you how many times I have been mocked, called ‘Abdul’, shammed in public, threatened of banning from so-called ‘Christian’ sites. The end times are near alright, for our once-great, once-God-fearing United States.

        Amen Brother!

        We are required to manifest fruit so that others see our light and are drawn to it by our Father!

        I too have been banned by many Christians that think we are warring against the flesh:

        2 Corinthians 10:3-6 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh (4) (for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the casting down of strongholds), (5) casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ; (6) and being in readiness to avenge all disobedience, when your obedience shall be made full.

        Please remember that Father has many ways to separate the wheat from the tares and the sheep from the goats:

        Matthew 26:52 Then saith Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

    PUMPED DRY: The Global Crisis of Vanishing Groundwater

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    A MSM disinfo piece. There is no shortage of water. They just want us to think there is.
    Deb Tavares has spoken about this. See http://www.primarywater.org
    Remember:
    We have Primary Water! The Primary water source is God given and is a “renewable”.
    We are not running out of water.
    Please watch the YouTube “Primary Water Explained” and go to PrimaryWater.org to learn the water TRUTH.
    http://stopthecrime.net/wp/category/water/
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Primary water is a little known renewable resource that originates deep within the earth. When conditions are right, oxygen combines with hydrogen to make new water. This water is constantly being pushed up toward the surface under great pressure. The water finds its way towards the surface through fissures or faults. Depending on the geology, primary water can be accessed close to the surface, or even flow out as a spring.
    Primary water has never been a part of the hydrologic cycle until it finally arrives at the surface. Traditional hydrologic cycle water is finite and volumes fluctuate relative to available rain and snowmelt. Primary water is renewable and plentiful regardless of the weather.

    Greg,
    Cliff High was on your program last year talking about Crypto currencies exploding higher, however they done the exact opposite, will you be having him back on your program to discuss what has happened in that space and what he sees?

  24. Mike R

    Martenson is usually spot on. the accelerating collapse might still be imperceptible to most people, but the accelerating debt loads are pretty obvious. I’m sort of surprised we aren’t seeing more defaults on a daily basis. This lack of noticeable defaults, is worrisome, because it is more likely governments are stepping to make stealth bailouts, and not telling the public they are doing so. China is doing this in spades, which is hiding how bad their economy truly is. The Trump tariffs and trade war, is having a devastating affect on China, and I must say its been perfectly timed, since China was already in massive debt before then (north of $29 trillion), and in severe contraction, and now the tariffs have brought it to the brink of entire collapse. Its not being really revealed, but China is ‘blinking’ big time behind the scenes, and Trump is going to come away with massive concessions. Right now its all about making it look like China didn’t cave, as its more important for China to save face, than the reality of any deal they strike.
    Gold is near all time highs in 72 currencies. Except ours of course. I think its because of the Chinese economic devastation, and the realization that when the US comes out of this deal, the dollar will likely resume its upward trend against more world currencies. It doesnt mean dont hold gold. Just that the wait is going to be a lot longer than people think, who are based in countries denominated by US dollars. The value of the dollar is still decreasing, since all currencies are continuing to debase, as evidenced by how they are performing versus gold. Its just that the dollar is just not sinking as fast as other currencies are, so since its in an index, its being compared makes it look like it is rising. So gold priced in dollars is going up much more slowly.

    At some point, when they do a global reset, it will probably be done to temporarily ‘save’ a number of other currencies. I dont think very many people are viewing the reset this way. The first reset will probably result in an increase of the gold price by 25%. Followed by multiple resets. I would be willing to bet, that the trade agreement with China will include a global reset of all currencies. Once Trump has a massive deal with China, who much of the world also depends upon for its cheap goods, then he will negotiate a ton of other deals, which again will involve currency resets. Its a massive way to ‘vanish’ part of the global debt. Every country will have to take a hit. So will everyone’s buying power suddenly be 25% less ??? Perhaps in a number of goods areas, yes. Many service based industries will not show the same inflation rate.

    This reset will be done in an attempt to stave off a runaway hyperinflation here in the US, and globally. Why done this way ? Because the US dollar represents more than 60% of the globe’s primary reserve currency. Any collapse of the US dollar would result in runaway inflation in most of the world’s countries, and actually has been for some years, with small countries seeing very obvious effects (Venezuela most recently). So this isn’t gonna be done just to save the US. Its being done to keep so many other countries from economically collapsing all at once. Which is the biggest threat of all.

    The US – China Trade war, is simply ‘cover’ for this reset. The world’s leaders have to make it look like this is just about a tariff spat. It isn’t as most are starting to realize. China is the biggest power economically, after the US. Hence its critical to get a deal done with them, so the reset can occur.

    I think most of the world will shocked and sobered by what comes out of the US China trade deal. It will take everyone a long time to realize the disaster we avoided, albeit how temporary it is. Everyone will feel some pain, and in the end, Trump will be blamed for the pain, and not for the success of averting global financial disaster. The Dems will still try to impeach him, and may even use any trade deal, as the impetus. They’ll probably have to wait until his 2nd term.

    • Gary C

      Mike, a very well thought out post, which I mostly agree with, especially on how the scenario will play out. I for one do not see a total collaspe of the dollar, however all currencies will devalue, “Trump wants a weaker dollar and a strong stock market”
      If you banrupt your trading partners, who will buy your products.

      Will be seeing Martin Armstrong this weekend in Vancouver, I think your post is pretty much in line with his views generally speaking.

    This was an interview that resonated well with me. The three ‘Es’ that are tracked, make sense to me. As a gardener, I see changes occurring in harvest yields, going down, the number of bees and butterflies going down. The growing season itself seems to be getting shorter. At least in my neck of the woods. The weekly spraying overhead. What my dollar will buy at the grocery store, going down. All the chatter about government corruption, and best of all, much talk about the illegitimacy of the worldwide central banking system and their fraudulent money. Their control and being accountable to no one. Sweet gig if you can get it. Eventually they are going to come face to face with billions of people who have been hurt by their greed and phony wars.
    All in the pursuit of money and power.
    Enjoyed this interview with Chris. Thank you both for bringing the three Es to my attention, and for making it a part of the national discussion. One more thing:
    Emotional capital, ding! ding! ding! Very important subject.

  26. Rick Hester

    Good program. Thanks as usual.
    As for fewer bugs, fewer birds, trees dying……….I live in rural Georgia and have seen these things happening for several years. My personal explanation is chem-trails. I watch this cursed behavior happen in the skies over my home on an almost daily occurrence. I have read studies that claim the nano-particles of aluminum fall to the ground, leeching into the soil, coating the roots of trees which then have a difficult time absorbing moisture and eventually die. We are all inhaling this stuff. Perhaps the dying bugs and birds are the “canary in the coal mine”.
    Your guest mentioned solar energy. I wish I could understand solar energy kits enough to feel confident in buying something. I worry that I will buy a pile of junk. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    • William Stanley

      Rick,
      The kits come with the solar generator/battery, panels, and wiring that snap together. Lots of people recommend these. Check out some of the reviews.
      https://inergytek.com/collections/all

    • Paul in oz

      You may want to watch the Dane Wigington show from last November … Chem trails and more definitely have something to do with it … Also the polar axis shift is cause for concern. I have installed solar panels this year. They have been largely successful and on average generate about 35 kwh each day. I purchased high quality panels and a quality inverter and had a professional organization install them. I would estimate they, including installation will pay for itself within 3 years. Unfortunately, unless you use battery storage, you remain on the grid and if the power grid goes down so does your panel generation. Although battery storage is currently prohibitively expensive in terms of payback, prices for battery storage is declining and expected to continue to decline. I would estimate we live in a location with about 300 sunshine days per year. Hope this helps. Prices and regulations here tend to be considerably more than America, so you may be able do things cheaper.

    • paul ...

      You know … years ago if you stepped into a psychiatrist’s office and said you were worried about fewer bugs in the world and that you knew your refrigerator was watching you … you would have be put in a straight jacket and given some lithium … today we are simply released into the population … sprayed with aluminum given fluoride to drink and told not to think about such things!! … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-01-30/now-refrigerators-are-watching-us-too-smart-coolers-are-coming-store-near-you

      • paul ...

        As for solar energy Rick … you can’t go wrong stacking some “already concentrated” solar energy by cutting up a few cords of wood and drying it out in the back yard … unlike buying solar panels, batteries, gas generators, DC to AC converters, etc. … wood works on sunless days to cook your food, keep you warm, provide light and won’t get “fried” by an Electromagnetic Pulse … and there is no need for you to run to a gas station with a gas can waiting on line for fuel to run those extremely loud generators that can drive you out of your mind (just make sure you have a magnifying glass you can use to start a fire when you run out of matches) … what you should be thinking of buying to run your LED bulbs and stored electronic appliances (currently wrapped in a Faraday shield) is a wood fired steam engine that can turn an alternator … providing electricity, light and heat keep you warm even if the Sun is blocked by chem-trails, volcanic ash clouds or a nuclear winter!!

        • paul ...

          Rick … you can even make your own gasoline from wood to run your car … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_o5M6v1eD4I … but in an emergency situation this is way “to complicated” so forget it … the better strategy is “to seriously think about getting a horse” to pull a wagon and get you about and also help to plow your fields … the best solution is to generate steam from fire wood to turn a generator that can run your refrigerator and other appliances (even wind mills can’t be depended upon to turn a generator the way wood fired steam can) which can be produced on demand!!

          • paul ...

            Now … what the evil commies want to do … is control your ability to create your own “private grid” (a wood burning stove producing steam that turns a generator) … so the evil Demons are spraying the entire planet with aluminum dust to kill all the trees (which provides mankind with free stored solar energy) and to create a permanent cloud cover over the entire planet so sunlight can not be efficiently used to power solar cells … they want to build dangerous radioactive “Fukushima” nuclear reactors around the entire planet in order to keep the world population trapped into buying “their power” instead of the free power “God’s Sun” provides to all mankind!! … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRR_u3oooHw

            • paul ...

              You know Rick … the corporations in control of our government will have their spokesmen (like neocon Bolton) tell the American people “the United States Government will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecution for doing things that harm people” … and he is also calling for “sanctions against the International Criminal Court (ICC) for pursuing any investigations into such matters” … it is time for the entire world to put on their yellow vests and tell these evil corporations where to go (as God the Father told Satan where to go)!!!

    • iwitness02

      Rick, look up BackwoodsSolar.com and get their phone number off their home page, and give them a call. I have bought two different systems from them, including propane cook stove for the house and a freezer, and panels to run the freezer, batteries, charge controller, battery cables, DC to AC converters, and installed it all my self. Anytime I got stuck, a phone call fixed it. Good people. I am not off grid, but when we lose power in the winter, we still have a light in the kitchen and the coffee pot and toaster all work on solar. The freezer is in the garage. I have four panels and eight batteries, and two charge controllers that make up my two small systems. Just enough to get by on. Been running the freezer four years non stop, with no trouble. Just add water to the batteries every so often.

      • iwitness02

        The freezer runs on DC power and is wired directly to the batteries. 24 volt dc. Two wires. Positive and negative. It is that simple.

        • iwitness02

          All eight batteries are six volt deep cycle batteries. Four batts. are wired together to make one large 12 volt batt. for the kitchen. The other four batts. are wired to make one 24 volt batt. Charge controllers can typically handle 12, 24, and 48 volt systems. (the same controller)

    Greg –

    According to many solar scientists this polar vortex over the Midwest is the result of the sun having cooled in 2015 to what they call a Grand Solar Minimum. This phase of the sun also happened in late 1500’s which led to the Little Ice Age of the 1600’s. These extremes will be repeating in the future.

    As Chris Martenson pointed out the harrowing ecological disaster that’s unfolding in different parts of the world, here’s confirmation that it continues. As Dane Wigington and Chris Martenson have repeatedly said, if the animals, insects or sea creatures go extinct, we’ll go extinct as well. The web of life is complex and we need insects and sea life for humans to live on this planet.

    Another spot on interview … time may be limited to take advantage of Mr. Martenson’s advice … there appeared to be a technical breakout in silver at the end of November … the price then was 14.14 it is currently 16.03 and the 60 day moving average has yet to cross the 200 day moving average …usually a sign of secular bull … gold has had the moving average cross. All of the economic and geopolitical stars are aligning behind pm’s rising. Central bank intervention will likely be necessary and may be probable for these gains to be lost and or halted. It does seem as so many of the shows guest suggest, the central banks may struggle to keep it all together … stock up on necessities and if possible get some real money asap.

After that, the scavengers mill around for whatever they can find, reminiscing about the “Good Old Days”. For many, but not necessarily all, Life goes on regardless.

  35. eddiemd

    He is correct about trees dying off. I notice here in the Phoenix mountain preserve the number of plants/trees dying. I suspect that it was from the elevated air pollution that we see here year round. We get the particulate form of pollution in the winter but even worse is the ozone pollution formed by the extreme heat in the summer.

    I have not noted a change in the bird populations here in Phoenix. In fact I have observed more birds if anything. We now have quail that live and thrive in the urban areas and recently have spotted a large number of small parrots that have taken up residence.
    All the small mammals and birds that I remember as a kid in the 60’s running around in the desert now live in the urban areas; rabbits, roadrunners, quail, coyotes, owls, hawks, jackrabbits.

    The coyotes come through the neighborhood routinely.

  36. Cristina R

    About the insects, I live in the country side in southwest Brazil and I’ve noticed a drastic reduction of all kinds of insects, something like 80-90%, in the last few months. After watching the interview I realized that was a real fact! That’s really scary because food production and bird population will certainly be affected next very soon and the consequences of all that won’t stop developing… If you believe in the Bible, the prophets and Revelation mention all that, about the time of trouble and the destruction that’s coming etc (Zephaniah 1:2-3). God bless you all!

    Did you get a yellow vest? I got one last month.

  40. Dale Kosted, D.V.M.

    Greg,
    I thought it important to post this explanation addressing the term “natural born” in the Constitution.. There is nothing in the Constitution that was not carefully thought out and debated. If one has any questions concerning the Constitution, it is easy to clarify by reading the Federalist Papers and letters the founding fathers wrote to each other. The qualification of “natural born citizen” was placed there in order to guard against foreign interests affecting our country. To my knowledge, Obama was the first POTUS that was not “natural born”. There is no question that he a legal citizen of the US but he is NOT natural born as his dad was an alien. It is unfortunate that all the focus was placed on the whereabouts of his birth rather than the founding fathers interpretation of natural born. This is going to be very important in the upcoming 2020 election as Kamala Harris is also a citizen of the US but NOT natural born as both her parents were aliens at the time of her birth. The article below spells it out in explicit detail. It is a very important subject that needs to go to the Supreme Court to be clarified once again to an uninformed populace. I am sending this to my Oklahoma Senators and House Rep. I hope all USAW readers do the same.
    Dale

    The Fourteenth Amendment and a “natural born citizen”

    A common misunderstanding of “natural born” citizenship comes from the Fourteenth Amendment, but a strict reading of the fourteenth amendment is quite clear that this only conveys an at birth naturalized citizenship. Those born in the United States at the time of adoption and afterwards were only citizens. Those who wrote the amendment knew exactly what they were doing. Because of the distinctive use of “natural born citizen” and “citizen,” in Article II, Section 1 the simple fact that being born in the United States does not make one a “natural born citizen,” it only makes one “a citizen.”

    The Fourteenth amendment states in Section 1,

    Section 1 – “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

    Obviously missing is the conveyance of “natural born” status to these citizens. In fact what is obviously included in the text is the term “naturalized.” This section has several clauses, the first deals with citizenship.

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.

    The second deals with prohibiting the states from passing laws denying the protection of citizenship from any citizen, “natural born” or naturalized.

    No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

    The fifth section details something very important, it reads

    Section 5 – “The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.”

    Article 1, Section 8 enumerated the powers Congress has. The only power Congress has over citizenship is found here. It reads,

    “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;”

    To make the freed slaves citizens, naturalization was the only power the 14th Amendment granted Congress to use. Look it up in the Constitution. Congress had no intention and no authority to making everyone born under the 14th Amendment “a natural born citizen.” This is born out by Congressional records regarding the debate of the Fourteenth Amendment. By the chief architect of Section 1 of this amendment.

    “I find no fault with the introductory clause, which is simply declaratory of what is written in the Constitution, that every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen; but, sir, I may be allowed to say further, that I deny that the Congress of the United States ever had the power or color of power to say that any man born within the jurisdiction of the United States, and not owing a foreign allegiance, is not and shall not be a citizen of the United States.” John A. Bingham, (R-Ohio) US Congressman, Architect of Section 1 of the 14th Amendment, March 9, 1866 Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291 (1866), Sec. 1992 of U.S. Revised Statutes (1866), Cf. U.S. Const. XIVth Amend.

    There is no doubt that anyone born under the 14th Amendment who is not subject is a “naturalized citizen,” or just “a citizen,” as the Amendment states. They are not natural born citizens.

    To further understand why this is so, is to look at the first clause carefully.

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.

    The words “born or naturalized” are joined with the conjunction “or,” and logically an or implies either of the two are equal. What they are equal in is being a citizen. Not “a natural born citizen.” This expressly negates the idea that simple birth of a person who is “subject to the jurisdiction” confers the coveted “natural born” status. If the term “citizen” did in fact convey a “natural born” status, then who were naturalized would be considered “natural born.”
    Obviously, this is not the case, as it would mean that people like Kissinger, Albright and Schwarzenegger could run for office. Clearly, the Fourteenth Amendment is not conferring “natural born” status on anyone, it only confers simple citizenship and the universal rights given to all citizens, “native born” and naturalized. In fact, several Supreme Court Cases since the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment restrict citizenship claims based on being born geographically within the United States, and bestows the coveted “natural born citizen” title to the children of citizens, while affirming simple citizenship to the children born to aliens.

    1. The Slaughterhouse Cases 83 U.S. 36 (1873) The Fourteenth Amendment excludes the children of aliens. “The phrase, “subject to its jurisdiction” was intended to exclude from its operation children of ministers, consuls, and citizens or subjects of foreign States born within the United States.”
    2. Minor v. Happersett 88 U.S. 162 (1874) The Fourteenth Amendment draws a distinction between the children of aliens and children of citizens. “The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also.”
    3. Elk v. Wilkins 112 U.S. 94 (1884) The phrase “subject to the jurisdiction” requires “direct and immediate allegiance” to the United States, not just physical presence. “This section contemplates two sources of citizenship, and two sources only: birth and naturalization. The persons declared to be citizens are “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof.” The evident meaning of these last words is not merely subject in some respect or degree to the jurisdiction of the United States, but completely subject to their political jurisdiction and owing them direct and immediate allegiance. And the words relate to the time of birth in the one case, as they do to the time of naturalization in the other. Persons not thus subject to the jurisdiction of the United States at the time of birth cannot become so afterwards except by being naturalized, either individually, as by proceedings under the naturalization acts, or collectively, as by the force of a treaty by which foreign territory is acquired.”
    4. Wong Kim Ark Case, 169 U.S. 649 (1898) Affirms that “natural born citizen,” is the child of an existing citizen. “The right of citizenship never descends in the legal sense, either by the common law or under the common naturalization acts. It is incident to birth in the country, or it is given personally by statute. The child of an alien, if born in the country, is as much a citizen as the natural born child of a citizen, and by operation of the same principle.”
    5. Perkins v. Elg, 307 U. S. 325 (1939) In citing a long series of cases, involving minors removed from their US domicile by their foreign born parents, the Supreme Court distinguishes the difference of “a native born person” of two naturalized citizens can become President. This distinction of citizenship is not made to the others, only that their Jus soli citizenship is intact if at the age of majority they reclaim it.

    As you can see from the intent of the Founding Fathers to the Supreme Court decision that “a natural born” is the child of citizens. A natural born citizen is not the child of an alien. In this there is no doubt. The question now that we seek answered is that Barack Hussein Obama, II is both the child of an alien who never had any intention on becoming a naturalized citizen and the child of a citizen minor. If Barack Hussein Obama, II was in fact born in Hawaii, he is a citizen under Jus soli and afforded all rights any citizen has. But he is not a citizen under Jus sanguinis, because we have laws that dictate how Jus sanguinis citizenship can be transferred. If Barack Hussein Obama, II cannot claim citizenship under Jus sanguinis then he is not a natural born citizen.

    While many patriots will argue with clear conviction “natural born” should be narrowly interpreted as to mean both parents must be citizens, giving birth to that child under the jurisdiction of the United States of America, they do accept that Jus sanguinis citizenship can be passed from one parent in accordance to the law of the land at the time of birth. So what was the law of the land at the time for giving a person Jus sanguinis citizenship?

    There three ways for a person claim citizenship, what most of us think of first is called Jus soli, “the right of the soil,” which is the physical location your place of birth. The second is what is called Jus sanguinis, “the right of blood,” which you inherit from your parents. The third is a combination of Jus soli and Jus sanguinis, and it is this combination that determines if one is a natural born citizen. Since any citizenship under Jus solis is codified by the Fourteenth Amendment, we only find laws for passing citizenship via Jus sanguinis on August 4th, 1961 in the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 (McCarran-Walter Act). This act states that in order for Obama’s right of blood citizenship to be passed to him, that since he only had one parent who was a U.S. citizen at the time of your birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least ten years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 14. Barack Hussein Obama, II fails the test for the right to claim “natural born citizen” status.

    Common sense tells us that both Jus soli and Jus sanguinis are what the Founding Fathers intended when they penned the phrase “a natural born citizen.” For imagine foreigners owing allegiance to a foreign power, arriving in America, giving birth to a child and immediately returning home to their country with their child. This child is reared for 21 years in a culture that hates America and that wants to see America destroyed. On the child’s 21st birthday this child returns to the United States of America, claiming their citizenship based Jus soli. For fourteen years they live in the United States, supported covertly by these foreign powers, growing in wealth and stature until they reach the age of 35 years. This scenario cumulates with this child of the soil, not having one drop of American blood in their veins, becoming President and destroying this country. Considering that countries are a creation of mankind, and non-existent in nature, natural loyalties are too blood.

    “To disregard such a deliberate choice of words and their natural meaning would be a departure from the first principle of constitutional interpretation. ‘In expounding the Constitution of the United States, every word must have its due force, and appropriate meaning; for it is evident from the whole instrument, that no word was unnecessarily used, or needlessly added. The many discussions which have taken place upon the construction of the constitution, have proved the correctness of this proposition; and shown the high talent, the caution, and the foresight of the illustrious men who framed it. Every word appears to have been weighed with the utmost deliberation, and its force and effect to have been fully understood.” Chief Justice Roger B. Taney

    The Constitution directly specified 3 types of citizens, at the time of the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment as those who are “citizens,” those who were citizens at the time of the adoption of the Constitution, and natural born citizens. The architects of the Fourteenth Amendment had two to choose from in granting citizenship under this amendment, they choose just a citizen, and rejected “a natural born citizen.”

    The Democrat’s have been pulling a fast one on the American people for decades now and are lying about Natural Born. Cruz & Rubio are not natural born and Jindal wasn’t either but he is out now. 
The Founder’s used Vattel’s book Law Of Nations when writing the Constitution and it states, ” natural born is …”a person born in a country of parents who are it’s citizens” Two parents not one! The Democrat’s have always ignored the real meaning of natural born. All the illegal’s babies who are born here are not natural born citizen’s if they never took the Naturalization Oath at 18 years of age they are not citizen’s period. The Democrat’s have always said the Supreme Court has never taken up the Natural Born question and so it’s what they say it is and that is false. In 1875 in a case before the SCOTUS Chief Justice Waite in the Opinion of the Court did say it was two parents to make a natural born citizen. The case file disappeared from the SCOTUS web site in the mid 1990’s but I have a copy of the part of the Opinion that dealt with natural born.
    This case below and Vattel’s book Law of Nations is why the Democrat’s won’t try to take the Natural Born question to the Supreme Court. They know the court will use the Founder’s letters to each other and Vattel’s book and the Minor v. Happersett court opinion and the result would be two parents to give natural born status.
    88 
U.S. 162
Minor v. Happersett
    Argued: 
February 9, 1875
Decided: March 29, 1875
    WAITE, 
C.J., Opinion of the Court 
The CHIEF JUSTICE delivered the opinion of the 
court.
    Looking 
at the Constitution itself we find that it was ordained and established by “the people of the United States,” [n3] and then going further back, we find that these were the people of the several States that had before dissolved the political bands which connected them with Great Britain, and assumed a separate and equal station among the powers of the earth, [n4] and that had by Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union, in which they took the name of “the United States of America,” entered into a firm league of [p167]friendship with each 
other for their common defence, the security of their liberties and their mutual and general welfare, binding themselves to assist each other against all force offered to or attack made upon them, or any of them, on account of religion, sovereignty, trade, or any other pretence whatever. [n5]
    Whoever, 
then, was one of the people of either of these States when the Constitution of the United States was adopted, became ipso facto a citizen — a member of the nation created by its adoption. He was one of the persons associating together to form the nation, and was, consequently, one of its original citizens. As to this there has never been a doubt. Disputes have arisen as to whether or not certain persons or certain classes of persons were part of the people at the time, but never as to their citizenship if they were.The Constitution 
does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.
    You’ll notice it say’s, “born in a country of parents”, meaning born in this country and to two parent’s who are it’s citizens!
    In letters to each other the Founder’s were most worried about someone with a foreign father because they believed the son always follows in the father’s political & religious belief’s. Obama has certainly proven the Flounder’s wisdom was right on!
    Cruz & Rubio have Cuban father’s who were not citizens when they were born. In fact Cruz’s dad just became a citizen in 2005 because his son was running other wise he didn’t care about becoming an American citizen or he would have done so decades ago!
    You should copy this and share it because too many people do not know the truth and the Democrat’s just love it that way

    It is refreshing to see that these imperative conversations are starting. Humanity is facing The Great Waves of Change, which has essentially three important components: (1) A world in resource decline – an ever increasing population drinking from an ever shrinking well. (2) A changing climate that will significantly alter the production of food, the availability of fresh water, and the generation of stronger and more destructive climate events. (3) The collapse of the natural environment, largely brought about by human ignorance and greed.

    There is one final piece of this puzzle which also simply must be addressed and discussed – the presence of predatory extra terrestrial forces who wish to take advantage of a weak and divided humanity for their own purposes (The Intervention). The single biggest event in human history. Humanity knows nothing about life in The Greater Community – a universe of a billion, billion, billion galaxies and more. Humanity must awaken from its’ slumber of denial and face this event, which threatens the freedom and self determination of every man, woman, and child on planet earth. This can be seen. It can be known. newmessage.org

    Hello there Greg

    Another great interview with Chris, of which I have been listening to for many years ! When I have been hearing his interview about everything in this world is being lost and being destroyed by human bad behaviour on planet earth ! Just one Bible text comes in to mind that gives a spiritual commentary about what Chris has been talking about !

    This is Revelation 11:18; is a classic text for this great interview!

    Thanks again for such a honest and logical interview

    Kind regards always
    Robert
