DJIA Reverses From 12K; Robert Prechter: "I think it's over"

IMPORTANT RELATED BLOG: Thousand Mark Reversals In Major Stock Indices

This morning I opened my email and found a message from Robert Prechter, the "Elliott Wave Theorist", that simply stated: "I think it’s over."



While I've sent many, many emails to Bob, I don't think he's EVER sent one to me that wasn't a response.

Note that his message was received at 9:35am EST, and 8 minutes later the S&P500 peaked above the 1300 mark and then sharply reversed course:





If this is the turning point in mass mood that Prechter and I believe it is according to the Elliott Wave Principle, then what may follow is what I've dubbed the "Apocalypse Wave" and a 90%+ plunge in stock prices:





This week has been a profound historical parallel to what occurred in mid-July of 1990 just before Iraq's invasion of Kuwait that year. On July 16th and 17th of that year the DJIA closed at 2999.75 two days in a row, i.e., just below the psychologically important 3000 mark. The DJIA never closed at or above 3000 that year and immediately with the DJIA reaching this high point Saddam Hussein made a speech threatening Kuwait after which Iraq invaded Kuwait precipitating an oil-shock and 25% reversal in stock prices as the world economy was shoved into recession:



A comparable pattern occurred in October of 1973 when the DJIA climbed to the 1000 mark just as the Yom Kippur Arab-Israeli War occurred and the subsequent OPEC oil embargo that spiked oil prices, sent the world economy into a severe recession and triggered a 40% drop in stock prices by the following year:



As overviewed in my thesis and a recent blog, I've discovered that this pattern of historical "shocks" occurring with reversals from psychologically important thousand marks in major stock indices like the DJIA is common around the world. I believe we are seeing a replay of this market phenomenon at the current historical juncture.

All week the DJIA was flirting with the psychologically important 12000 mark with the index reaching a closing high of 11990 yesterday:





Meanwhile, political upheavals started to unfold in the Middle East and Africa leading to the downfall of the governments in Tunisia, Lebanon and, as of today, Egypt. Instability is also afflicting Yemen and Jordan. While this had seemingly gone unnoticed by world markets this week, with violent protests in Egypt today the potential for trouble hit Wall Street's radar and stock prices sank while oil prices surged.

What is this leading up to?

Given my life story, I can't help but point out that we are approaching the 20 year anniversary of my "apocalyptic vision" that began with seeing a special report of a chemical SCUD missile attack on Israel. At the time I was regularly corresponding with Robert Prechter, and I described what I had seen in the postscript of a letter I wrote to him on February 11th, 1991:

P.S. Please don't mark me off as too insane for telling you about this, but probably the strangest thing in my life happened the other night. Something I'm still at a loss to explain. I was watching T.V. by myself around 11 p.m. on Wednesday (2/6/91), just flipping through the stations, when I stopped on CNBC. The next thing I knew, Tom Brokaw was on the air saying something about a SCUD chemical attack on Israel. NBC's Haifa correspondent was on the air and Brokaw asked him about the situation. The correspondent said that a SCUD attack was underway and that chemical agents were involved. Brokaw then said something to the tune of, "well you better put your gas mask on then." In the midst of all this I was actually yelling out the door to my dormitory floor that a chemical attack on Israel was underway. I flipped the station to the normal NBC channel and the special report was still on. It then went off and regular programming continued, I immediately got up and told friends in my dorm that Israel had just been hit with chemical bombs. The next two hours I spent flipping through the stations trying to find more news. The next day I spent trying to explain what I had seen to both myself and my friends. The report never existed.


(Note: The above special report is similar to what I saw, but it was not the same one.
No special report of a SCUD missile attack on Israel aired the evening I saw it.)


The day after mailing this letter to Prechter, I had another, far more disturbing experience.

I was with a friend who had just become interested in Nostradamus and prophecies that might connected with the Gulf War underway at the time. After showing him some books I had on Nostradamus, I began reading him the following prophecy from the eighth chapter of the Bible's Book of Revelation:

When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, (1) there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. Then I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer; and he was given much incense to mingle with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar before the throne; and the smoke of the incense rose with the prayers of the saints from the hand of the angel before God. Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth; and (2) there were peals of thunder, loud noises, flashes of lightening, and an earthquake.

Now the seven angels who had the seven trumpets made ready to blow them.

The first angel blew his trumpet, and (3) there followed hail and fire, mixed with blood, which fell on the earth; and a third of the earth was burnt up, and a third of the trees were burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

The second angel blew his trumpet, and (4) something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships destroyed.

The third angel blew his trumpet, and (5) a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died of the water, because it was made bitter.

The fourth angel blew his trumpet, and (6) a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of their light was darkened; a third of the day was kept from shining, and likewise a third of the night.

Then I looked, and I heard an eagle crying with a loud voice, as it flew in midheaven, "Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, at the blasts of the other trumpets which the three angels are about to blow!" [Revelation 8]

Up to that time, I had already come to believe that this prophecy is a depiction of a future nuclear war. Even though it was written some 2000 years ago, it accurately describes each major phase of a global nuclear holocaust:

1. The half hour of "silence in heaven" during which ICBM's would traverse their orbits before striking targets after being launched.

2. The thunderous reports, bright flashes, and earthquake associated with nuclear detonations.

3. The nuclear blasts of "hail and fire, mixed with blood" followed by raging fires that would consume much of the earth.

4. The nuclear explosions, "like a great mountain, burning with fire", all over the world's seas as ports, ships, and submarines are attacked.

5. The lethal contamination of water supplies by radioactive fallout ("Wormwood") for weeks after a nuclear war. (Note that the word wormwood is capitalized in the prophecy, suggesting it refers to something specific.)

6. The blanketing of the sky by vast dust clouds after a nuclear war such that sunlight, moonlight, and starlight is obscured thereby causing a "nuclear winter".

Over the years my conviction had grown that this prophecy predicts a future nuclear war. First off, the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine helped reveal the truth behind the prophecy. This is because, as I later found out, the Ukrainian word for the bitter herb "wormwood", which poisons water in the seventh seal prophecy above, is "Chernobyl".

Upon reading this prophecy to my friend, I received supernatural validation of its meaning. Just as I began reading it, my friend and I heard an air-raid siren followed by the bellowed percussion of a nuclear explosion. The authenticity of the experience led my friend and I to rush to the sub-basement of a nearby library. From there, I contacted the fire department to see if any sirens had been sounded and/or if there had been any sort of explosion; however, nothing of the sort occurred.



So here we are some 20 years after my supernatural vision related to the prophetic Apocalypse and, just as the DJIA reverses from the 12000 mark, Robert Prechter sends me a note that he 'thinks it's all over'. The next thing you know there's a popular revolt underway in Egypt just after Hezbollah took over Lebanon and world stock markets begin to tank.

WHO is Authoring HIStory? Only the author of a story can know future chapters before they unfold, although some characters might receive a foreshadow.

Maybe there really is a "Grand Designer" to The Grand Design:



Does "science" seriously believe the laws of physics made the laws of physics rather than our Lawmaker?



Such haughtiness is doomed to destruction IMHO:

The Fate Of The Union III: The Audacity Of False Hope

Bookmark and Share
Print
In the past two years I have delivered a "Fate Of The Union" blog on the evening of the President's annual address to the nation warning that America's days are numbered in stark contrast to the glowing optimism put forth by our nation's misleaders. Thus far my grave outlook has proven ill-fated rather than America, and for this I am grateful. However, I believe the time draws near when my despair for America proves true. The 'audacity of false hope' can only go so far when God is no longer heeded.

While two years ago I recognized that a rebound was in store for the financial markets and economy, I had no idea the extent to which we could make believe all is well with Helicopter Ben's money printing press running at full throttle. Alas, in this age of Mammon worship, this was enough to lift the spirits of a people who have opted to follow the false god of money and material wealth rather than turn to their true God. But will the seeming good fortune last?

The bottom line is that America has fallen into temptation and is being delivered into Evil. That this is not popularly recognized is par for the course for a spiritually fallen people who worship their own works rather than their Creator Who makes all work, life and well-being possible:

"Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall." [Proverbs 16:18]

In this regard, I think it's important to put the United States into the context of Bible prophecy. As an American, I dislike this harsh truth and what it means for me, my loved ones and the great nation in which I was born. However, as a servant of God I need to convey what I know to be true and plead for honest repentance while there's still time for each individual who still has open eyes and hearing ears.

I believe America is the "Mother of Harlots" mentioned in Revelation 17-18 that is destroyed by fire in an hour's time by the prophetic "Beast":

Revelation 17

The Scarlet Woman and the Scarlet Beast

1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, 2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”

3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. 5 And on her forehead a name was written:

MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.


6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.

The Meaning of the Woman and the Beast

7 But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. 8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

9 “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. 10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. 11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.

12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. 18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”


Now let's break down this chapter from Revelation.

1. Note what John is being shown: "Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication."

America is a nation that sits on many waters and her unrepentant hedonism, materialism and sinfulness has been spread around the world bringing great wealth and pleasure to all those who trade (fornicate) with her.

2. The chapter continues: The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

This worldly power being described is very wealthy from its global trading (fornication), but what of the mystery of 'Babylon the great' and 'the mother of harlots'? I've long puzzled over this passage, but in recent months it dawned upon me what this likely means. A harlot is a prostitute. What do prostitutes do? They do anything, no matter how immoral and wrong, for money and pleasure. Is there a more apt description of modern America?

3. As to the 'Meaning of the Woman and the Beast', I believe this is all about the meaning of America and Russia.

First off, the beast "was, is not and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition" and those 'whose names are not written in the Book of Life will marvel when they see the beast'. I believe this beast is Russia, a power that was in the form of the Soviet Union, now is not with the feigned Soviet collapse and is now ascending out of the bottomless pit in the form of the the rise of the Antichrist.

Secondly, the seven kings over which the woman sits are the G7 nations of which five have fallen as world powers (Britian, Germany, France, Italy and Japan), one is (America) and one has not yet come and will do so only for a short time (Canada after America is destroyed?). As for the beast that was, and is not, being the eighth, I think this represents the G8 which includes Russia.

Third, the ten horns with ten kings that give their power and authority to the beast, this is consistent with the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) that will strategically be combined with Russia when global nuclear war comes, which is a one hour conflict for the most part.



The idea that these nations make war with the Lamb makes sense to me since I believe I'm the Lamb and I'm now living in America the target of the coming attack by the prophetic beast.

Fourth, this should speak for itself:

"The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”

America is the melting pot of 'peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues' including New York City/Wall Street which financially reigns over the kings of the earth. Russia and its allies hate "Capitalist" America and will 'burn her with fire' via thermonuclear attack.




As for the prophetic fall of Bablyon the whore, this is spelled out in next chapter:

Revelation 18

The Fall of Babylon the Great


1 After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! 3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”

4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6 Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. 7 In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ 8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.

The World Mourns Babylon’s Fall

9 “The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, 10 standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’

11 “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: 12 merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; 13 and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. 14 The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! 17 For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance 18 and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’

19 “They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’

20 “Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!”

Finality of Babylon’s Fall

21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore. 22 The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore. 23 The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.”


Let's break this chapter down:

1. The initial allusion to America seems pretty clear: “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen....For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.” World trade with the abundance of luxury in America has made the merchants of the world rich.

2. There follows a call by God to: "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues." Getting out of America before it's destroyed by a third world war is truly advisable.

3. America's "sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities." Thus, God will "render to her just as she rendered to (God), and repay her double according to her works." To the exent that America has "glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure (God will) give her torment and sorrow". That this will not be foreseen in America seems reflected by: "for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’"

4. A remarkable characteristic of an all-out attack by Russia on America is that, with modern missiles and weapons of mass destruction, total destruction will be unleashed in an hour's time. Hence, "her plagues will come in one day — death and mourning and famine, and she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her."

5. Needless to say, once America and the largest economy in the world is destroyed, “The kings of the earth who committed fornication (trade) and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon (NYC), that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come....For in one hour such great riches came to nothing."

6. In what seems to be a clear reference to world trade, we read: "Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’ They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’"

7. Regardless of what Americans would like to believe about themselves, apparently God is not that much of a fan of our ways given that this fiery destruction via Russia's nuclear attack leads to: “Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!”

8. As is likely, following a Russian nuclear attack, America will be gone forevermore: “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore. The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore. The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived."




So how close is America's outlook to what is expressed by the Book of Revelation above?

Rather appropriately given what's explained in my thesis, over the past two days the DJIA has risen to the psychologically important 12,000 level:



The outlandish optimism expressed by President Obama this evening is matched with a similarly insane outlook on Wall Street as shown by measures of investor confidence:



As I've been warning about in this blog and on the internet for many years, America and Western Civilization are literally certifiably insane:



The collective confidence and mass optimism prevailing is completely out of touch with historical reality. This is well represented by the Dow reaching 12,000 just as the key international flash points I've been warning about, i.e., the Middle East, Korea, etc., are on the verge of being ignited per Kremlin plan.

Since the strong delusion prevailing in this world could not be countered no matter what I've tried to communicate, tragically only reality will apparently make the difference, and this, I'm afraid, is the fate of the union.

I hope I'm wrong again, but somehow I don't think so this time around.

God have mercy...

Speculation That Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Is The Antichrist? - Time Out For TB2K!

Bookmark and Share
Print
My final TB2K post:

(can't link there since it was deleted)



Recently I was sanctioned with a 'time out' in the TimeBomb2000 (TB2K) forum, one of the last online communities where I've been able to freely express my opinions, because I had the audacity to compliment President Obama's speech at the memorial for the Tucson shooting tragedy. A link to a blog I'd written regarding the Tucson shootings that was critical of Sarah Palin and the gun-toting tactics of Tea Party activism crossed some sort of red line for the "moderators" there such that I've been temporarily banished from further postings and discourse in the main forums as if I were some sort of child.

I've not blogged on this incident because I thought it better to lay low since I realize that war may be near and the survivalist and "prepper" community represented by TB2K may be all that is left of America after the dust settles.



However, in light of the discussions that have prevailed in the forum since I left, it's clear to me that, in the event of the collapse of civilization, if all that's left are TB2Kers and like-minded folk, then 'America' might truly be forever dead.

While the seemingly blind Sarah Palin punditry and calls against civility in American politics are somewhat disturbing, what I found in the forum this evening is beyond the pale.

Some TB2Kers, apparently of the 'right-wing Christian fundamentalist' bent, are speculating that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords may be the "Antichrist".

Yes....I'm serious.

The almost perfect insanity apparently began with the following post:

AC - Head injury . . . just thinking out loud

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Won't make me popular . . . but, it just struck me this morning.

In all the religiously opocalyptic stuff I've ever read, it says that the future A.C. will be a very well liked person who incredibly (almost unbelievably) returns from a head injury.

So, (ahem), any recent political people amazingly recouperating from an expected deadly head injury?!

I'm just saying . . .


For those unfamiliar with Christian eschatology, the poster is referencing a key passage in the Book of Revelation regarding the prophetic beast:

And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. [Revelation 13:3]


From that comment, more Antichrist speculation followed by forum members as documented at Uncle Bob's forum of TB2K dissidents, and further exemplified in a TB2K thread today about Rep. Giffords' recovery and transfer to Houston for further therapy.

Clearly any call for civility, or just plain reasonablenous, in political discourse has gone unanswered at the forum where I was placed in "Time Out" for making a positive comment about President Obama's speech calling for healing and national reconciliation in the wake of the Tucson tragedy. To the contrary, in speculating about whether or not the primary target of the shootings, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, is the Antichrist (even if done in jest), TB2K members have gone off the far right deep-end into an abyss of very un-American political hatred and vitriol.

Might I suggest the whole TimeBomb2000 forum take a TIME-OUT?!


After spending the last nearly EIGHT YEARS there trying to spell out the true Antichrist in this world, it's become apparent the TB2K folk wouldn't know the man even if he came up and bit 'em on their BUTTS!



Of course, commenting negatively to the outside world about the very uncivil discourse at TB2K will likely result in my membership being revoked, but, quite frankly, THANK GOD! I do not belong anywhere that seeks to dictate what I'm to say and believe.

I will close this thread with what will likely prove to be one of my final comments at TB2K made in the Time Out! gulag set up there for rebellious members like I became:

The attitude of the moderators that govern this forum is that if you don't like their moderation then find another forum.

I've been active at TB2K since May 2003. I have 5800+ posts to my credit. I've been financially supportive. What's more, with regard to the need for preparedness, I'm seeking to raise awareness about the greatest threat imaginable facing Americans and Western civilization, i.e., that the collapse of communism was a staged strategic deception, and Russia and China never stopped gunning for our destruction and subjugation.

The concern I have with how TB2K opts to rule its own house is with their seeming anti-Americanism. That those who purport to be "Tea Party" activists can behave in a manner so at odds with the spirit of America, the Constitution and the notion of an inalienable, God-given right to liberty is hypocritical, childish and tragic IMHO.

After the dust settles from the coming war, many who frequent TB2K will be among those left standing. They will bear the responsibility of carrying forth the torch of liberty that is the spirit of America. If the attitude of these remnants are guided by the despotic sensibilities of those running this forum, then there will be no hope at all for rebuilding what our Founding Fathers had envisioned. To the contrary, the tyrants planning to take control of this ill-fated world would be well-served by those who banish to this TB2K gulag any who dare to voice opposing opinions and fail to conform to "authority" here.

However, there is a higher AUTHORity to whom all answer, and I suggest the powers that be, even in this lowly discussion place, bear that in mind.

Washington D.C. is found at the nexus of VIRGINia and MARYland. God is ultimately authoring HIStory through us, and the constitutional republic framed by America's Founding Fathers was more than just a good idea. I believe it was a divinely inspired vision ultimately meant for God's true Kingdom in this world. Those that want to tear down America and what it stands for go against Christ himself, and when it comes to "eternal life", it's important to be on the right side of God's sovereign good will.

An Historical Epiphany: Russia's Lying To This World

Bookmark and Share

Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!" [John 8:42-45]

The site of Jesus’ baptism by John the Baptist opened to the public after 42 years this week:

After 42 years as a closed military zone, the site where John baptized Jesus along the shores of the Jordan River will permanently open to the public with a special ceremony on January 18.

Guess who showed up to be baptized at the historic site by the waters of the Jordan River?

Why...Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, of course!



The Russian media says President Dmitry Medvedev has taken a dip in the Jordan River in commemoration of Jesus' baptism.

RIA Novosti and ITAR-Tass say Medvedev was dunked three times - in line with Orthodox tradition - at a site in western Jordan where Jesus is said to have been baptized by John the Baptist. [Yahoo News]

What was the occasion?

The Orthodox Epiphany that commemorates when Jesus was baptized in those very same waters some 2000 years ago:

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev took an Epiphany dip in the holy waters of the Jordan River on Wednesday.

Epiphany, also know as Theophany, is one of the Great Christian Feasts. The Russian Orthodox Church celebrates it on January 19 in line with the Julian calendar.

The Russian leader visited a Russian Orthodox center for pilgrims, currently being built near the area where Jesus Christ is believed to have been baptized by John the Baptist.

"Visiting the Jordan River on Epiphany Day is a great joy for any Orthodox believer. I'm convinced that the hotel will soon take in its first pilgrims. Happy holiday," Medvedev wrote in the guest book. [Ria Novosti]

On January 19th, the Russian Orthodox Church celebrates Epiphany.

Epiphany is one of the main Christian holidays, one of twelve, which is celebrated and has been since the first ages of Christianity. On this day, Our Lord Jesus Christ was baptized in the River Jordan.

The Gospels say that St. John the Baptist, also known as John the Forerunner, who started the practice of baptizing people, received a revelation that the Savior of mankind would come to him to be baptized. Several days later, Jesus Christ came to him. When Jesus was baptized, the Holy Spirit in the image of a dove descended on Him, and John heard the voice of God the Father: “This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased”.

“Christ’s mission was to deify man’s nature – and to sanctify the whole world. By receiving baptism in the River Jordan, He sanctified the water element – and thus the whole of nature,” said Archbishop of Egoryevsk Marc. [Voice Of Russia]

Why is it that the formerly atheistic, KGB Kremlin elite are "finding God"?

How about because THEY THINK THEY EFFECTIVELY ARE GOD and believe themselves to be the ultimate AUTHORity in human HIStory!

"History is a capricious creature. It depends on who writes it." - Mikhail Gorbachev

Notably, the Wikipedia entry for "epiphany" states:

An epiphany (from the ancient Greek epiphaneia, "manifestation, striking appearance") is the sudden realization or comprehension of the (larger) essence or meaning of something. The term is used in either a philosophical or literal sense to signify that the claimant has "found the last piece of the puzzle and now sees the whole picture," or has new information or experience, often insignificant by itself, that illuminates a deeper or numinous foundational frame of reference.

Here's an historical 'epiphany' for you.

I've been trying to warn this world for almost 20 years now about the evil intentions of the "Old Enemy".



Russia's ruling elite did away with their false and failing ideological front of Communism to replace it with a 'new lie for old':

CHRISTIANITY!


The Kremlin, deluded by its historical messianic complex, is implementing a multi-year apocalyptic plan, in concert with common allies, to "save" the world from the sinful, materialistic West and evil, "Zionist" Jews via historically unprecedented mass deceit and murder.

I'm here trying to save you from this absurd historical lie. Hence, the "Apocalypse":

An Apocalypse (Greek: apokálypsis; "lifting of the veil" or "revelation") is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, i.e. the veil to be lifted.

The term also can refer to the eschatological final battle, the Armageddon, and the idea of an end of the world. In Christianity The Apocalypse of John is the Book of Revelation, the last book of the Christian Bible.




The Man of Lawlessness

Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for [that day will not come] until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. [2 Thessalonians 2]








"Today the Soviet system can no longer seriously strive toward the spectre of Communism - but at the same time it cannot yet abandon the grandeur of its tasks, for otherwise it would have to answer for fruitless sacrifices which are truly innumerable. But in what then can the Soviet system find its justification? Only in the consciousness that it was unconsciously in the past, as it is now quite consciously, God's instrument for constructing a new Christian world. It has no other justification, and this is . . . a genuine and great justification. By adopting it, our state will discover in itself a truly inexhaustable source of Truth, spiritual energy and strength, which has never before existed in history . . . The old pagan world has now finally outlived its era . . . In order not to perish with it we must build a new civilization - but is Western society, whose foundations have been destroyed, really capable of this? Only the Soviet sytem, having adopted Russian Orthodoxy . . . is capable of beginning THE GREAT TRANSFORMATION OF THE WORLD." (Passage written by Russian nationalist G.M. Shimanov quoted in Yanov's The Russian Challenge, p.236)




From outward appearances it would seem that the old Soviet Union has returned. A thing crucified, dead and buried has been resurrected. Four weeks after Vladimir Putin’s re-election, a procession led by the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church arrived at the Church of Christ the Redeemer in Moscow. In keeping with ancient tradition the doors of the church were shut, symbolizing the sealed cave where Christ’s body was placed following crucifixion. “After midnight,” noted Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya, “the Orthodox faithful taking part in the procession await the opening of the church doors. The patriarch stands on the steps at their head and is the first to enter the empty temple where the Resurrection of Christ has already occurred.” In due course the Patriarch offered up a prayer, the doors of the Church of Christ the Redeemer were opened and out stepped President Vladimir Putin. If any Christians were present for this ceremony they offered no protest to this blatant sacrilege. The woman who reported this event for the benefit of Western readers has since been assassinated. The KGB defector who was investigating the circumstances of her death has been poisoned (i.e., Litvinenko). [SOURCE]

Note that Vladimir Putin took power in Moscow on December 31st, 1999, at the turn of the Millenium. Given that a day is like a thousand years to the Lord, Putin's rise to power was supposed to symbolize how Christ rose on the third day, i.e., on January 1st, 2000, the holy (the term is used loosely here) Russian empire (i.e., the "Third Rome") and its 'tsar of tsars' (i.e., king of kings) "resurrected". The Kremlin is seeking to forge a false 'kingdom of god', a global tyrannical monarchy of man, at the expense of Western Civilization.

That everyone in this world could seemingly care less about the evil plot unfolding around them just boggles my mind and insures that our prophetic fate is what man makes. I, however, will not cooperate in our collective destruction and subjugation, even if I'm on my own, and no matter how crazy this may seem toall around me in our insane world.

"I say to you, this morning, that if you have never found something so dear and so precious to you that you will die for it, then you aren't fit to live. You may be thirty-eight years old, as I happen to be, and one day, some great opportunity stands before you and calls upon you to stand up for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause. And you refuse to do it because you are afraid. You refuse to do it because you want to live longer. You're afraid that you will lose your job, or you are afraid that you will be criticized or that you will lose your popularity, or you're afraid that somebody will stab you or shoot at you or bomb your house. So you refuse to take the stand. Well, you may go on and live until you are ninety, but you are just as dead at thirty-eight as you would be at ninety. And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit. You died when you refused to stand up for right. You died when you refused to stand up for truth. You died when you refused to stand up for justice..." - Martin Luther King, Jr., 1967

'Russia Killed Polish President' Claims Jaroslaw Kaczynski and Family of Slain Leader

Does truth matter in this world?

Last April Poland's 'Air Force One' crashed in Smolensk, Russia taking the lives of 96 people, including Polish president Lech Kaczyński and his wife, much of his staff, former Polish President Ryszard Kaczorowski, and a large chunk of Poland's military high command including Chief of Staff Franciszek Gągor. The Polish entourage was headed to a commemoration ceremony for the 1940 slaughter of 22,000 Polish officers and others in the Katyn Forest by Russia's secret police.

In the hours after the crash in Smolensk, while Vladimir Putin was on his way to the crash scene to oversee Russia's "investigation", a cell phone video was uploaded to YouTube showing some extraordinarily suspicious footage. Upon later enhancement of the video and translation of the audio, what became clear is that a farmer and his son who wandered over to the crash scene after witnessing the tragedy had unwittingly caught video of Russian soldiers shooting to death remaining survivors:



With such compelling evidence of Russian malfeasance in the Smolensk crash, which would constitute one of the most egregious acts of mass assassination of national leaders in history, one would have thought that surely this time the truth would be brought to light especially this being the age of the internet and bottom-up news investigation and reporting.

So what has happened in the nine months since the Smolensk crash and the emergence of the potential 'smoking gun' video above?

Well....last week the results of a joint Russian-Polish crash investigation were released and low and behold the crash was attributed to pilot error:

Russia has blamed the Smolensk air crash which killed the Polish president and nearly 100 other people in April on Polish pilot error.

The Polish crew failed to heed bad weather warnings because they were afraid of displeasing President Lech Kaczynski, Russian investigators said.

The pilots were driven to take "unjustified risk", they found.

That Jarosław Kaczyński, the twin brother of the slain Polish president, thinks the official report is a "joke" likely won't matter much:





The fix is in, complements of Vladimir Putin and his spook associates, and the truth will not be allowed to see the light of day in terms of what people are supposed to 'officially believe'.

Meanwhile, Moscow continues to machinate this world unnoticed toward thermonuclear destruction and absolute tyranny once the dust settles. When the war comes, and it inevitably will in that almost no one save myself is resisting the murderous lies of the Evil One, everyone will need to ask themselves whether or not the short-term comfort of dismissing the truth was really worthwhile.

Thousand Mark Reversals In Major Stock Indices

Bookmark and Share

In 1990, I recognized a rather curious pattern between financial markets and collective human behavior when on July 16th and 17th of that year the DJIA closed at 2999.75 two days in a row, i.e., just below the psychologically important 3000 mark. The DJIA never closed at or above 3000 that year and immediately with the DJIA reaching this high point Saddam Hussein made a speech threatening Kuwait after which Iraq invaded Kuwait precipitating an oil-shock and 25% reversal in stock prices as the world economy was shoved into recession:



I've since discovered that this pattern of historical "shocks" occurring with reversals from psychologically important thousand marks in major stock indices like the DJIA and Dow Composite index is somewhat common.

There's reason to suspect a similar sort of historical pattern is going to repeat here, but on a much, much larger scale.

Distinct patterns of mass human behavior will be dismissed by the intellectual elite governing what we are 'supposed to believe' as "coincidence". In the face of all empirical evidence they will purport their mathematical models tell them with absolute certainty that the stock market follows a 'Random Walk' because investors are rational, markets are efficient and only unexpected 'news' moves aggregate prices one way or another. That historical reality is flagrantly contrary to such notions matters little since careers and lifelong incomes are derived from proselytizing according to the doctrine of serving and worshiping Mammon in gross disrespect of any God that calls for an ethos of sharing resources and wealth for the common good.

The US DJIA, US NYSE, UK FTSE, French CAC, German DAX and DJ European STOXX are all topping around psychologically important thousand marks and threatening to reverse course. This implies the potential for a significant historical shock(s) like occurred with the terrorist attacks in the U.S. on 9/11 and the global financial crisis that struck in the autumn of 2008.

Here are current charts of the key indices:













Here's a quick comparison of thousand mark reversals in the US DJIA, US NYSE, UK FTSE, French CAC, German DAX & DJ Euro STOXX at the key historical junctures of 9/11/01 and September/October 2008. This is something trusted analysts in academia have never ever and will never ever look at and consider since they are so above the relevant historical reality they claim to have modeled accurately as being a 'random walk':

September 11th, 2001:

U.S. DJIA breaks below 10K, THEN 9/11 occurs:



U.S. NYSE breaks below 6K precisely when 9/11 occurs:



UK FTSE breaks below 5K precisely when 9/11 occurs:



French CAC breaks below 4K precisely when 9/11 occurs:



German DAX falls below 5K just before 9/11 occurs:



Financial crisis of 2008:

DJIA breaks below 11K just as the financial crisis hits:



NYSE breaks below 8K and crisis occurs:



British FTSE falls below 5K just as crisis hits:



French CAC drops below 4K:



German DAX breaks below 6K:



Dow Jones European STOXX 50 index breaks below 3K:



Will a reversal from DOW 12K, NYSE 8K, FTSE 6K, CAC 4K, DAX 7K and STOXX 3K coincide with a new historical shock possibly involving the chemical SCUD missile attack on Israel I foresaw almost 20 years ago during the 1991 Gulf War?

This is a distinct possibility.

What gain might there be from what comes next?

Maybe only this time around harsh historical reality will lay asunder once and for all the self-deluded perspective of those who wish to maintain that selfishness and greed are the optimal means by which a free people should govern themselves in pursuit of social harmony ('General Equilibrium') and maximum happiness for all ('Pareto Optimality'). This extraordinarily popular self-delusion has always been destined to catastrophically fail IMHO.

Adam Smith's "invisible hand" argument has been twisted into the ultimate self-serving lie of Capitalism:



Being selfish and placing faith in the 'invisible hand' of 'The Market' is a woefully inefficient, unjust and irrational way to steward this world. (Bear in mind "free market competition" is ultimately a struggle to find the best ways to cooperate and provide for one another!)







Sound collective judgment and social harmony comes from loving others as thyself and placing our faith in God...

Man Is Completely Insane & Collective Suicide May Be Near

It never mattered what I said or what I wrote, there was no way I could ever divert man as a species from its utterly insane, suicidal course.

Twenty years ago today the 1991 Gulf War began with a massive U.S. aerial bombardment on Iraq began to evict Saddam Hussein's occupying forces from Kuwait. The whole affair was a nonsensical lie of some sort to strategically mislead the West regarding the feigned collapse of power in the Communist East:



In the context of that historical crisis, I had a mysterious vision of a chemical SCUD missile attack on Israel in early February of 1991 that was followed by hearing an air-raid siren and nuclear explosion with a friend upon reading aloud the words from the 8th chapter of the Book Of Revelation:



While this supernatural warning proved irrelevant to the crisis in 1991, I believe what I foresaw may be relevant to what is about to transpire in the near-future:



It's almost as if history has unfolded according to some sort of long-term plan.

20 years ago the Capitalist West headed by America began to forcefully assert its vision for a 'New World Order':



Of course, the 10th anniversary of President Bush Sr.'s speech in this regard has become infamous.

I believe that at this historical juncture the Communist East headed by Russia will soon begin to forcefully assert its counter-proposal for a 'New World Order':

Behind the mask of diplomatic and political cooperation and partnership with the United States and Europe, the current Russian leaders are following the strategy of their predecessors and working towards a 'New World Order'. When the right moment comes the mask will be dropped and the Russians with Chinese help will seek to impose their system on the West on their own terms... - Anatoliy Golitsyn's Memorandum to the CIA: FEBRUARY 1993 - THE IMPORTANCE OF THE STRATEGIC FACTOR IN ASSESSING DEVELOPMENTS IN RUSSIA AND CHINA










"War to the hilt between communism and capitalism is inevitable. Today, of course, we are not strong enough to attack. Our time will come in 20 to 30 years. To win, we shall need the element of surprise. The bourgeoisie will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. There will be electrifying overtures and unheard-of concessions. The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down, we shall smash them with our clenched fist." - Dimitry Z. Manuilsky, Chairman of United Nations Security Council, 1949, SOURCE: The Lenin School of Political Warfare

The West - selfish, arrogant and deluded beyond all reason - will be utterly surprised by its undoing from the calculated designs of the East, but what else can one expect when the world has gone completely insane?

I tried to stop the madness, but all I've met is dismissal, mockery and persecution. In all these years no one has been willing to lift a finger to help me to save ourselves, so the fate is what man makes and there's been nothing I could do to change the tragic story unfolding around me. It's all just ridiculous, pathetic and futile. (Of course, self-described Christians will maintain there's 'hope in Christ', but I simply don't see it as long as they are likewise deluded into inaction.)

Are we predictably irrational animals that self-destruct?



Or can we overcome our human nature?

Even Glenn Beck liked it.

American needs to stop tearing itself apart before there's no hope left at all. There's a terrible tempest on the horizon, possibly as I've foreseen, and we need to come together to resist the Evil gunning for our demise. I believe God's trying to help us out.

Quick Market Update: Crash Alert In Effect

Bookmark and Share
Print
In the wake of the January 4th solar eclipse, stock markets in the U.S. and Europe are topping out around psychologically important thousand marks in key indices equivalent to where the world reversed into the 2008 financial crisis that set off the crisis in confidence still impacting the global economy:

The U.S. NYSE index is topping around the 8000 mark:



The German DAX is topping around the 7000 mark:



The British FTSE is topping around the 6000 mark:



The French CAC is topping around the 4000 mark:



This comes as sentiment is ripe for a major top with investor optimism rivaling the manic levels which prevailed at the peak in 2007:



As can be seen above, according to the Elliott Wave Principle we are still in the midst of Primary Wave 2 up and when the next major turn down occurs this should be into Primary Wave 3 down, what I've dubbed the "Apocalypse Wave":



In this context, note that a Hindenburg Omen signal occurred in mid-December that portends the potential for a stock market crash in this time period:

Confirmed Hindenburg Omens are very rare. There have been only 28 confirmed Hindenburg Omen signals over the past 25 years. December 2010's is the 29th. This is amazing when you consider that during that time span, there were roughly 6,400 trading days. Of those 6,400 trading days where it was possible to generate a confirmed official Hindenburg Omen, only 197 (3.1 percent) generated one, clustering into 28 confirmed potential stock market crash signals.

If we define a crash as a 15% decline, of the previous 28 confirmed Hindenburg Omen signals, eight (28.5 percent ) were followed by financial system threatening, life-as-we-know-it threatening stock market crashes. Three (10.7 percent) more were followed by stock market selling panics (10% to 14.9% declines). Four more (14.3 percent) resulted in sharp declines (8% to 9.9% drops). Six (21.4 percent) were followed by meaningful declines (5% to 7.9%), five (17.8 percent) saw mild declines (2.0% to 4.9%), and two (7.1 percent) were failures, with subsequent declines of 2.0% or less. Put another way, there is a 28 percent probability that a stock market crash -- the big one -- will occur after we get a confirmed (more than one in a cluster) Hindenburg Omen. There is a 39.2 percent probability that at least a panic sell-off will occur. There is a 53.5 percent probability that a sharp decline greater than 8.0 % will occur, and there is a 74.9 percent probability that a stock market decline of at least 5 percent will occur. Only one out of roughly 14 times will this signal fail.

Meanwhile, we are now entering a Puetz crash window in the wake of the January 4th solar eclipse in association with the January 19th full moon:

Several years back, a cycle watcher named Steve Puetz attempted to see if eclipses and market crashes were somehow related. He studied eight of the greatest crashes in financial history, from the Holland Tulip Mania of 1637 to the Nikkei of 1990. He found that market crashes tend to occur near full moons, and that the greatest number of crashes start after the first full moon after a solar eclipse, when that full moon is also a lunar eclipse. Puetz found that all eight crashes occurred six days before to three days after a full moon that occurred within six weeks of a solar eclipse. The odds of that being a coincidence, Puetz calculated, are less than 1 in 127,000.

Puetz was not saying that so-called "Puetz windows" always lead to crashes, but that if a crash is going to occur, a Puetz window would be the likely time frame in which it would happen. Puetz windows tend to occur every year or two, while crashes are rare events. (SOURCE)

He....concludes that a full moon in general and a lunar (eclipse) full moon close to solar eclipses, in particular, seem to be the triggering device that allows for the rapid transformation of investor psychology from manic greed to paranoia (SOURCE).

Since I'm a broken record on most of these indicators and will ever be deemed a boy who cried wolf one too many times, I will simply post this updated information with the reassertion that there's the potential for the Elliott Wave Grand Supercycle crash and global war I've so long been warning this world about to no avail. The fate is what we make by not recognizing and counteracting the underlying insanity of unrepentant selfishness and sin ("sin" particularly in the sense of an attitude of dismissal or rebellion toward God). As long as people give in to their carnal, self-important nature, history will continue to unfold according to bipolar cycles between misled extremes of hope and despair. The truth is we are not on our own, so stop fretting either way!
