In The Month Of September 2015 We Officially Enter The Danger Zone

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Earth Globe Planet Sky World - Public DomainIs September 2015 going to be one of the most important months in modern American history?  When I issued my first ever “red alert” for the last six months of 2015 back in June, I was particularly concerned with the months of September through December, and not just for economic reasons.  All of the intel that I have received is absolutely screaming that big trouble is ahead.  So enjoy these last few days of relative peace and quiet.  I mean that sincerely.  In fact, that is exactly what I have been doing – over the past week I have not posted many articles because I was spending time with family, friends and preparing for the national call to prayer on September 18th and 19th.   But now as we enter the chaotic month of September 2015 I have a feeling that there is going to be plenty for me to write about.

At this time last month, I declared that we were entering “the pivotal month of August 2015“, and that is exactly what it turned out to be.  August was the worst month overall for stocks in three years, and it was the worst month of August for U.S. financial markets in 17 years.

Throughout history, there have only been 11 times when the S&P 500 has declined by more than five percent during the month of August.  When that has happened, the stock market has almost always fallen in September as well

September is the only month in which the S&P 500 fell more frequently than it rose. What’s more, in the 11 times that the S&P 500 fell by more than 5 percent in August, it declined in 80 percent of the subsequent Septembers, and fell an average of nearly 4 percent.

Last week, there was a rally after the initial crash.  I warned that this would happen in advance, and we have seen a similar pattern play out during almost every market collapse throughout history.  The following comes from John Hussman

As I noted early this year (see A Better Lesson than “This Time Is Different”), market crashes “have tended to unfold after the market has already lost 10-14% and the recovery from that low fails.” Prior pre-crash bounces have generally been in the 6-7% range, which is what we observed last week, so I certainly don’t see that bounce as having removed any of our concerns. We remain extremely alert to the prospect for much more extended market losses.

So how far could stocks eventually fall?

Hussman is projecting that we could ultimately see the market decline by more than 50 percent

We fully expect a 40-55% market loss over the completion of the present market cycle. Such a loss would only bring valuations to levels that have been historically run-of-the-mill.

One thing that could accelerate stock market losses this time around is the fact that people have been borrowing lots and lots of money to buy stocks.  That works when the stock market just keeps going up, but once the market turns the margin calls can lead to panic selling on a massive scale.  The following comes from a recent piece by Wolf Richter in which he describes some of the chaos that we have already been witnessing…

Energy stocks and bonds crashed, even those of some large companies like Chesapeake. Some have reached zero. All kinds of other stocks and bonds have gotten eviscerated over the past few months, even tech darlings like Twitter or biotech giant Biogen. Portfolios with a focus on the wrong momentum stocks took a very serious hit.

And margin calls went out. The Journal:

Some lenders, including Bank of America Corp., are issuing margin calls to clients after the global market drubbing of the past week, forcing investors to choose between either putting up more money or selling some of the securities underlying the loans.

Other banks too sent out margin calls, including U.S. Trust, Morgan Stanley, and Wells Fargo, according to the Journal. With margin calls mucking up the scenario, spooked investors are trying to lower their leverage before they’re forced to, and the boom in securities-based lending appears to be over. And the wealth units of the banks that gorged on these loans are likely to see their profits dented.

If that continues, a much crummier thing happens: margin balances reverse. And the last two times they did after a majestic record-breaking spike, the stock market crashed.

For some more technical reasons why another wave to the downside is coming, see an excellent article entitled “RED ALERT for 2nd CRASH DOWNWAVE…” by Clive P. Maund that you can find right here.

In addition to the chaos in the financial world, we are also witnessing a convergence of events during the month of September that is pretty much unprecedented.  I know that I have never seen anything quite like it in my lifetime.

Recently, I put together a list of 33 events that we know will happen next month, and you can find that list right here.  Instead of repeating the entire article, I just want to highlight a few items from the list…

September 13 – The last day of the Shemitah year.  During the last two Shemitah cycles, we witnessed record-breaking stock market crashes on the very last day of the Shemitah year (Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar).  For example, if you go back to September 17th, 2001 (which was Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), we witnessed the greatest one day stock market crash in all of U.S. history up until that time.  The Dow plunged 684 points, and it was a record that held for exactly seven years until the end of the next Shemitah cycle.  On September 29th, 2008 (which was also Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), the Dow plummeted 777 points, which still today remains the greatest one day stock market crash of all time in the United States.  Now we are in another Shemitah year.  It began in the fall of 2014, and it ends on September 13th, 2015.

September 15 – The 70th session of the UN General Assembly begins on this date.  It has been widely reported that France plans to introduce a resolution which will give formal UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian state shortly after the new session begins.  Up until now, the U.S. has always been the one blocking such a resolution, but Barack Obama has already indicated that things may be different this time around.  It would be extremely difficult to overstate the significance of this.

September 25 to September 27 – The United Nations launches a brand new “universal agenda” for humanity known as “the 2030 Agenda“.

September 28 – This is the date for the last of the four blood moons that fall on Biblical festival dates during 2014 and 2015.  This blood moon will be a “supermoon” and it will be clearly visible from the city of Jerusalem.

If you don’t know what a “supermoon” is, the following is a pretty good summary of what we should expect to see

On the night of 27 to 28 September, the Moon is closest to us at 2.46am, only an hour before it’s full. As a result, this supermoon will appear 14 percent bigger in the sky than the Moon at its most distant and smallest, and it should be 30 percent brighter. The Moon will certainly look unusually big and brilliant around 2am. But at 2.07am you’ll see a small chunk being nibbled out of its brilliant disc by the Earth’s shadow. Sinking deeper and deeper into the darkness, the Moon is totally eclipsed by 3.11am. It remains completely in the shadow of the Earth until 4.23am, when the full Moon gradually begins to emerge.

There has been lots and lots of speculation about other events that could take place during the month of September, but as of right now I cannot prove that any of them will actually happen.

But that doesn’t mean that I’m not watching.

If it sounds ominous to you when I say that we are “entering the danger zone” during the month of September, that is good, because that is precisely the tone that I am attempting to convey.

When things start completely falling apart in this nation, millions upon millions of Americans will complain that nobody warned them in advance about what was coming.

Well, I am warning you right now.

Get ready.

    The Economic Collapse Blog Has Issued A RED ALERT For The Last Six Months Of 2015.

    Published 6/25/2015.

    123 days until 12/31/2015.

    Lets do a count down every day until the end of 2015 and see just what happens.

    ——————————————————————————

    By Michael S, on July 31st, 2015.

    “And I kind of appreciate the countdown. It reminds people of my warning, and perhaps it will give some readers a renewed sense of urgency.”

    • Daystrom2012

      Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.2Peter 3:3-4

      But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1Cor 2:14

    • Coffeedrinker

      Rather than expect the collapse to happen in September or October or some other month down the road, try to imagine what new (rabbit pulled out of the hat trick) the elite might useto keep maintaining the illusion of stability and economic recover in America.

      With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, the elites have two built-in holidays available to manage the public perception and keep everyone’s feeling good.

      One strategy I see coming to the forefront is making the news reflect a worst situation in the rest of the world than in the US. For example, China’s currency devaluations, stock market crash, and factory explosions. While, on the other hand, the US has a small stock market decline followed by a significant recovery and a minor munitions explosion in Japan.

      These tricks could go on month after month after month; or even year after year after year.

      • Alwaystomorrow

        The end is out there somewhere but who knows where. This September or November 2018 or ………

            Joel, look near the end of the last blog, under the name of “guest” I asked fwalker15 their predictions (guess) for the DOW for the end of September and for the end of 2015. I also asked for their (guess) for WTI crude and gold.

            They gave me their opinion and added their opinion on silver.

            The information was free so it doesn’t hurt to read it.

    • Preacher62

      I have been counting down the days ever since I realized that Jesus is coming back. When he does I will stop counting. Watch and be ready. While I am waiting I will continue to enjoy every blessing he sees fit to bestow on me and my insignificant little life. God Bless

  • Preacher62

    Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and you need have no fear for whatever may come. God will provide and as Michael says, it will be the greatest opportunity ever to share the love of Christ with those who are hurting from the calamity.

    • Harbinger

      It is a great opportunity to not only share but demonstrate the love of God. The problem is that many “believers” have lost their saltiness. Mathew 5 states that we are to be the salt seasoning that brings out the God flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? I encourage all those seeking God and the truth to make sure they haven’t lost their saltiness, for it is in great need and will become a precious commodity in the days to come.

      • His Nibs

        Truly spoken

    • Nemnor

      Preacher62, the REAL and only permanent solution, begins with dismantling Capitalism and building a new and sustainable system, based on producing and distributing goods and services to abundantly meet the genuine needs of every “rational” individual – as the PRIMARY end-purpose of production and distribution, and in accordance with what will sustain the environment.

      We have to fundamentally move away from the current profit-based economic system (i.e. away from Capitalism), to save the Human Race and the Environment.

      • Preacher62

        Good luck with that. I think I will stick with the REAL and permanent solution which is to rely on the creator of all that is. Hasn’t let me down yet so no reason to believe that he will anytime soon. God Bless

    • GSOB

      That’s right. Abide in me and you will bear fruit.
      Let Jesus do it for you.
      All we need to do is set our priorities.
      Redemption is provided by the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
      All the evil still in the world serves only to bring us to the realization that we all are like dust. Our existence
      is in Him, the RED eemer.

      Every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

      • Preacher62

        Amen brother, I pray God will bless and keep you just as he has promised.

  • Nemnor

    Regardless to what happens (or do not happen) this September 2015, please know that, at the very root of all the major socioeconomic issues facing the USA and the World is the decadent and decaying world-wide Capitalist economic system. That the Capitalist system is actually facing an ongoing economic crisis – which began since the late-60s/early-70s, and is now at a “dead end”, and no longer able to generate long-term recovery by economic means alone.

    That, regardless to who is in the WH and despite what the US Government and the Fed do (or not do), the future under US (and world-wide) Capitalism is a general slow grind and relentless decline towards total socioeconomic collapse/chaos and/or WW-III.

    • Frankly Nemnor, are you not tired to always cut and paste your same blabla on each article of Michael?

      • Nemnor

        Joel Peeters, the really important thing to keep in mind is that the general decline is ongoing – right on to the very end-of-days. That there will be NO long-term recovery, and the end is ultimately WW-III, except if we dismantle Capitalism.

        • As for the decline I agree with you – no doubt about it, only blind people can not see it.

          But it is not the Capitalism which is declining, it is the whole human civilization whether they are Capitalist, Communist, Animist, Socialist… there is not one nation to show a good example to another. That’s why your constant rant against Capitalism is honestly tiresome, because you do not have the same rant against other Social Ideologies spread on the planet…

          You only focus on the Capitalist way, well no human ideologies were ever good for long…

          • barry oldwater

            Venezuela makes an excellent example of an utopian society that has provided well for its citizens.

          • Nemnor

            barry oldwater, get in tune with the reality of Venezuela (and there is no need to be sarcastic). Venezuela is essentially an anti-imperialist “developing” (third world) Capitalist state, lead by what seems to be a “Socialist/Leftist” Government. Venezuela is opposed by the US Government (and the CIA) primarily because Venezuela is anti-American/Imperialist – with regulations that go against the general interest of the US “National Capital”. Venezuela is far from being a genuine “Socialist” society – though this might be the dreams and hope of the ruling “Socialist/Leftist” government.

          • Nemnor

            Joel Peeters, where you are mistaken is that what you label as “Communist”, “Socialist”, etc. are really ALL various forms of DECAYED and decaying Capitalism.

            For the past 500 years or so, the World NEVER had genuine “Socialism” anywhere – as it was/is virtually impossible to build genuine “socialism”, while the World was/is dominated by Capitalism, and with the (leading) Capitalist countries doing everything in their powers to prevent the development of any genuine alternative to the Capitalist system.

            Places like the former USSR and present day Cuba, China, North Korea, Venezuela, etc. was/are really varying forms of “State/Collective Capitalism” (though these places might be governed by a “socialist/communist” party that might have the intention to build “socialism” some day into the future). However, genuine “Socialism” is possible ONLY through a WORLD-WIDE dismantling of Capitalism.

            AND, you MUST build genuine “Socialism” FIRST, and providing that genuine “Socialism” actually works for the Human Race, then and only then, we can begin to even dream of what genuine “Communism” (supposedly) promised to us.

          • GSOB

            lol

        • Anon

          I agree. Capitalism relies on people buying stiff they don’t need (but want). Consume, consume, consume.

          Only now consumers are becoming more selective about what they consume and this is spelling trouble for corporations. Which will affect everyone else who needs to be employed by said corporations and retailers.

          If they have to make less, then there will be less jobs available for more people. Thus more people unable to work, unable to consume (even selectively). It is a slippery slope.

          Technology and the internet is a blessing and a curse. It has contributed to the the demise of gainful employment for many and the odds are great that it will only get worse from here.

          My advice: try and live as simply as possible. Buy used and refurbish for furniture. Don’t upgrade to the latest and greatest every year, five years.

          Don’t give the kiddos every ridiculous toy and babble that comes on the market. Teach and encourage life skills so they do not have to rely on someone else to do things for them.

          Teach them not to be helpless and at the mercy of others. This includes the government.

    • There is no if and when, this is going to happen. They are planning already way ahead of us, while we “speculate” because many times, our “predictions” never came true…which is by design.

      We need to look beyond collapse now. Thats what smart “conspiracy guys” do…The biggest threat to the NWO

      • what do you suggest to do? if they “activate” the military powers like u said in comment before.. I think it will be or entering the NWO (with a RFID) or live on your (own)?

        • GSOB

          False, end time theories are like waterless clouds in that they fail to recognize literal versus figurative language found in the Bible.

          The blindness permeating christiandome breeds false teachers to indoctrinate the laity with a
          hopeless, prophetic message of assumed, pessimism. Popularizing a view of necessary defeat concerning the progress of Christ’s kingdom, until He returns.
          In other words, …things must,
          according to these teachers, get worse and will only get worse right up to the end.

          However,…we must believe
          in a sovereign God. He micromanages every country and politician – to shape human events to happen on specific dates according to His good pleasure and will.

          False prophets of gloom and doom that are prevalent today, only bring shame on the name of Christ.

          They rely on verses that are favorable to their argument while ignoring contravening verses.
          They often major in the minor. They don’t offer much help but to claim that the world is ending so prepare.

          All of life is of grace from God.

          But the doomsayers present a legalistic, man-centered, works righteousness view of appeasing God, rather than of grace and forgiveness in Christ He has provided.
          For them, the Gospel is not enough.
          They must add to it. Instead of entering into His rest, they teach
          doctrines that give oppurtunity for the flesh to formulate additional
          requirements, in order to stay redeemed.

          They lead the flock back to Judaism by emphasis on ‘Jewish’ people, Jewish rituals, rebuilding a physical, Jewish temple and on observing Jewish holy days and festivals of old.

          The teaching of Jesus and Paul has in view the opposite.

          Their teachings set Christians free from the ritualistic obligations of
          Judaism, sins dominion, sins penalty and the Satanic influence that permeates the religious and secular world we live in.

          Satan and his cohorts continue to teach on the subject of end times, pulling new believers into a false theology as well as a poor bible study method.

          Propaganda in the spiritual world promotes Lucifer’s agenda in both worlds.

          What did the Lord say?

          “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.”

          Then, as well as today, these prophetic writers are not even necessary.

          Why can’t the people of God rest and trust in Him?

          Because Satan seeks to cast himself as an angel of light in order to mislead the elect, thwart the arm of God, skew the gospel of God, cause division among the people
          of God – ALL towards preserving himself from the final judgment of God.

          In this way, Satan relies on the faithfulness of God to His word. He knows that God desires that none to perish and that He will work in bringing about the Kingdom of heaven to earth.

          Satan knows that Jesus Christ reigns now by His spirit and is establishing His throne in the hearts of men. That IS the New Jerusalem that
          John sees. (Christianity = Christ enthroned in your heart)
          The earth is the field. The wheat and the tare grow together until
          the consummation of the ages.

          The wheat are the sons of the kingdom.
          The tares are the sons of the evil one. Like the stock market with its runs and corrections, so is the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus
          Christ as it advances in this world.
          His is a full restoration of all things.

          The merciful, loving God in His administration has been dispensing Himself as the way, the truth and
          the life.
          His is a kingdom without end.

          Since the God-mans inauguration as
          the resurrected and glorified Christ on the throne, by His spirit, Christians are seated there with Him.
          Jesus has been advancing and growing in this field, until He makes all His enemies a footstool
          for his feet.
          Then He returns.

          Satan wants to prevent that return by teaching false eschatological positions that appeal to our lower natures. He wants to distract
          us from the most important thing.

          He tries to ‘abort’ the elect because He don’t know who they are – so He aborts all, as many as he can. Satan has the power of death, but our God is sovereign. He knows all things.

          Matthew 6:10

            I noticed that you said false prophets only come to bring doom and gloom. Are you saying that Michael is a false prophet? I just need some clarification. A lot of terrible things are happening in the world, and there is not doubt that another crash will happen in the future, but with September drawing to a close, it still has not happened yet.

    • fwalker16

      Hahaha you need education idiot I’m wall street genius i make money your dumb and homeschooled roflmao ROFLMAO!!!!
      DERRRRR Me am articulate! I are smart!

  • I think they are militarizing the whole world. They would remove the entire concept of Markets, Corporations, Companies etc.

    We will be only employed in the Military, only military will have hospitals, schools, law & order, companies, r&d etc.

    The rest of us will be rebels to the One World Military, One World Government. This is what they show in Predictive Programming Movies as well, all post apocalyptic movies have rebels vs military tone.

    Imagine The military power of US+China+Japan+India+Russia+NATO under UN One World Control = Do we have any chance of freedom?

    “There is no ‘split the difference,’ no middle ground, no possible compromise. American sovereignty and global governance are incompatible.” Globalism is hubristic and dictatorial in nature. Believing that some type of a man made global political authority, ( UN…) which would inevitably erode self-government, could alter human behavior to the extent that it ends or greatly lessens war, poverty, inequality, is asinine. Basically globalist believe that man in all his infinite wisdom and on his own, without God, is capable of creating something equivalent to heaven on earth. The beauty of it all is that God never changes and we as a society are in for a rude awakening. I trust that you who are still on the fence about what is going to happen will start paying close attention.

      “Basically globalist believe that man in all his infinite wisdom and on his own, without God, is capable of creating something equivalent to heaven on earth”
      Can you quote that somewhere?
      I believe the intent is world betterment, not heaven on earth.

      • Harbinger

        If you look at the European Union or even the UN or any of the major academic experts you will see a common thread that spells out exactly what the globalist argument is for today. If the intent is world betterment, I am not seeing it. Utopia does not exist except in the minds of a globalist who has no concept of reality.

        • SunnyFlaSnotress

          It seems to me that you are merely misrepresenting these globalists, of whom you only name the UN & the EU, by putting words in their mouth

          • Harbinger

            Thank you for your concern: however, I have notice that if I quoted it or said it was on the internet you would believe it without question. That seems to be the problem with the majority these days, they are unable to think for themselves.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            Basically, I think you’re just making excuses so as to not make any effort to find anything factual to support your claims.

          • Harbinger

            Ignorance is bliss, seems to be a perfect fit for you today. That doesn’t mean your uneducated or if for a better word, stupid, but that you are uniformed and would rather be snide and argumentive rather then except the truth for what it is. At least it has helped you excersise some lateral thinking, and perhaps see things from a different perspective.

      • nekksys

        Sunny, there is no difference between “world betterment” and “heaven on earth” within the Utopianist purview.

        As has been said, “You can not legislate morality.” We, on the whole, must change how we view ourselves, our fellow man, our planet and our relationship to everything living thing on this planet in order to effect real and lasting changes. This means affecting the mindset of every man, woman and child on this planet; a task which, as yet, has proven impossible.

    September 3, the Chinese Communist Party holds their parade commemorating the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII. Some alarming peculiarities in the ramp-up to the celebration indicates that some kind of “patriotic civilian activist” incident will occur in connection with the event, my guess would be Chinese fishermen setting up an “extemporaneous protest” encampment on the Senkaku Islands (termed the Diaoyu by the Chinese). The Senkaku Islands are significant because under existing international norms established by the post-war order underwritten by American military and economic power, they are indisputably Japanese territory.

    The Chinese (and now Taiwanese) claim to the islands tacitly recognizes this and makes an argument based on historical facts which is implicitly founded on the presumption that the existing international order is completely irrelevant and illegitimate as a basis for deciding territorial disputes in China’s sphere of influence. While there is some real economic value in the waters which can be claimed as part of the exclusive economic zone of the holder of the Senkau’s, Beijing has cast their claim to them not in economic terms but as a direct challenge to the legitimacy of the global order.

    The window of opportunity for Beijing to seize control of the Senkaku’s consistent with the principle of effective warfare described by Sun Tzu is closing, with the approaching end of the Obama regime and Japanese plans to base a permanent facility there. But while the Senkaku’s are a highly probable target, they are not the only possible option for Beijing to pose a challenge which the U.S. cannot afford to ignore or effectively answer.

    Combined with the damage which Beijing has inflicted on the global economy through deliberate mismanagement of their markets, this challenge has the potential to do much more than simply dramatically pop the financial bubble which the Fed has nurtured to unprecedented size and fragility. A significant demonstration of the limits of American military capacity to underwrite the tenuous global international order could unleash chaos which will devour civilization as we know it. Even a further demonstration of political inconstancy and lack of American commitment could do the same, albeit on a more imaginable scale.

    What is going to finally cause america to fall into a full economic collapse with irreversible damage is MESSIAH YESHUA’S Return–when countless numbers are taken home and america falls into ruins. Until then, america will continue to slowly crumble and rot from the inside out for its sins against the GOD of Israel. Mercy will be shown to the children, the elderly the mentally handicap–I believe GOD will not allow those to suffer under a full economic collapse for HIS grace endures forever. The innocent will be spared.

    I seen another suspicious blast in Red China. I am leaning toward insurance fraud. I wouldn’t be too surprised if AIG was the insurer on all of them. I feel an AIG bailout coming.

  • Mad Monkey

    When Chinese stocks fell 8.5% mid July for the first time, I was awake half the night and then the next day posted on a few prepper sites this is the beginning of the end. Lots of bad data in Australia today, Dow futures looking good for big collapse Tue.

    Did the S&P not enter the so called “death cross” this last week, I think every conceivable sign of a collapse is now visible. Would be a good list to make signs of collapse like the “dead cat bounce” we saw in US stocks and oil price last week that is now down again. Oil 4% down just today, the speculators are going to get burnt.
    I speak openly now about it at work, some starting to get a bit nervous – most just can’t comprehend it. Even on some pepper sites some jokes coming out about the timing.

    • its coming

      I too am now speaking openly about the signs to almost everybody. I waited for the “dead cat bounce”. I tell people to watch the markets and pay no attention to MSM BS stories about shootings and politics. I actually started making a list of signs for myself about a month ago to convince myself that I am not crazy.

      Not to mention the child molestors, wife beaters, murderers, rapists, etc, etc, etc. I wonder why christians don’t get together and pray daily on stopping at least one atrocity that happens every single day in this world. You know like praying all pedophiles die… after all the bible says if you have faith you can move mountains. Guess that’s one mountain no one want to bother moving cause American christians are too worried about their own 401K’s and getting little Johnny and Suzy into a fine college.

        “And when his disciples James and John had seen this, they said: Lord,
        wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume
        them? And turning, he rebuked them, saying: You know not of what spirit you are.

        The Son of man came not to destroy souls, but to save.”

        • GSOB

          Listen to me, Lord;
          hear what my accusers are saying!

          Should good be repaid with evil?
          Yet they have dug a pit for me.

          Remember that I stood before you
          and spoke in their behalf to turn your wrath away from them.

          So give their children over to famine;
          hand them over to the power of the sword.

          Let their wives be made childless and widows; let their men be put to death, their young men slain by the sword in battle.

          Let a cry be heard from their houses
          when you suddenly bring invaders against them, for they have dug a pit to capture me and have hidden snares for my feet.

          But you, Lord, know all their plots to kill me.

          Do not forgive their crimes
          or blot out their sins from your sight.

          Let them be overthrown before you;
          deal with them in the time of your anger.

          Jeremiah 18:19-23

          • NinjaGiraffe

            Seriously? You’re trying to pit Jeremiah against the Lord Himself? I don’t know about you, but in my book, the Lord wins.

            He punishes, but being Mercy Itself, you better believe He doesn’t enjoy sending souls to hell, and doesn’t often do it till the 59th second of the 59th minute of the 11th hour. As it is written when they were crucifying Him… God Himself… suffering Deicide… the worst sin that has ever or can ever be committed by man… “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” If He would rather forgive Deicide than send souls to hell or strike them down for it so that they go there without time to repent, something tells me what happens to our puny (and very guilty) bottoms just doesn’t warrant immediate retribution… especially when He taught men to forgive their enemies, love and pray for them. There is justice, eventually (as there was for those who crucified Him AFTER they had time to repent and still did not)… but to wish suffering and harm to others because they hurt us is an evil, when the Lord taught mercy and compassion. (Rather than acting like the debtor who was granted mercy for his debt when he begged for mercy, but then went out and throttled his fellow man over what he owed HIM, casting him into prison when he could not pay and begged for mercy.)

            Protestants never cease to amaze in this regard… How do you make sense of any moral question if you use scripture to fight scripture? (‘…wresting the scriptures to their own destruction.’) You set the prophets against literally the words of Christ? (A house divided against itself cannot stand?) Sorry, but God is of one mind, not divided. There was a time for the Old Testament, and a time for the New, which fulfilled the Old. And Christ, when He instituted the New Testament, definitely had the last word, being God. As it is written, He said, (as closely as I remember it) ‘you have heard it said an eye for an eye…’ etc… ‘but I say to you love one another, do good to them that hate you, pray for them that persecute…you.’ ‘For if you hate them that hate you… do not the heathens this?’ Those are the words of God.

            Sorry but… trying to use the old testament to say you can go ahead and wish evil on your enemies, hate them, get all warm and gooey inside when they suffer, just doesn’t cut it. It’s directly in opposition to the law of charity God Himself laid out there. Charity does not exclude or forbid justice… but it does tell us that judgment and punishment are God’s own affairs, and it excludes hatred and revenge, and the desire for others to suffer without mercy, when no man, being a sinner as all of us are, “deserves” mercy.

            Hope you realize that if you want to play that way, you can take the Bible and argue for pretty much anything (as people do try to use it to argue in favor of all their own sins and vices). Human language gives so much room for that, that you could probably find a protestant somewhere who would seriously try to use scripture to argue for … Oh wait… I was going to say “communism,” but yeah… they definitely already very frequently do that…

            The bible is a pretty big book, true… but let’s try not to get lost in it. Especially not in search of a way to excuse hatred. “Lord, set a guard about my heart, and a door about my lips… Incline not my heart to make excuses in sin…”

  • King Pete

    I have been reading Mike’s stuff for several years now, and I can find little fault in what he says. There will be more change in the United States, but there has always been change here; nothing remains static, change is the only constant. Some things that happen will be more disasterous than others, but in the end, things always come back to the same iron principles; the strong will survive, the weak will be swept away. This principle will never change; even if the country we have today eventually ends, something new will replace it. Famine, drought, floods, earthquakes, wars…all these will be, and many will perish; but those who are strong enough to survive will and they will carry on until our extinction event, what ever that may be. The secret is to live every day like it will be your last, enjoy and be thankful for the good things you have, love your family and take care of them, and do the best you can with what you have to work with.

      All the spiritually awake 1st laugh at you and then feel sad you are lost and blind and then realize you need prayer ..

      • NinjaGiraffe

        Not ALL of them will laugh. For charity’s sake, some of them will skip right to the recognition of the need for light and the prayer to obtain it.

        Let’s just never forget that we need it, too… Pride doesn’t just go before the fall, it also goes before the head blowing up so big we miss the moment when our feet lift off the ground… that is, that mysterious point where we get so full of ourselves that we become hypocrites. Heaven forbid… but I’ve seen it way, way too many times to not keep it in mind. Nothing blinds like pride… except maybe anger. Even if the ignorant need light, people who believe in God still need it, too, every single day…

        Otherwise we get like, ‘Lord, I give thee thanks that I am not like the rest of men…!’ whereas the one God was pleased with wouldn’t lift up his eyes, but said, ‘Have pity on me, a sinner!’

        Or as He said in so many words, ‘…unless you do penance, ye shall all likewise perish.’

        The whole world needs help right now, not just this one or that one.

    That supermoon with eclipse is going to be fantastic to watch. We’re planning to keep the kids home that Monday from school because we are all going to be watching the show and know they will be wiped out from being up from 2am-4:30am.

    Break out your telescopes, people! :)

    If you people hate the police blacks whites jews or who ever. Hate the devil instead. He’s the hater of all haters. If you see any demon or monster looking thing just destroy it.

    • Nemnor

      Would a “devil” or “demon” be some (excessively) greedy person who is already a BILLIONAIRE, and is speculating in the stock market in an attempt to make another billion to add to what they already have?

      And that is while about 32,000 people (mainly Children) are dying EVERY DAY (in this decadent Capitalist World), from malnutrition, hunger, starvation and preventable diseases.

  • Manfred Kohl-Ausberger

    Ordinary Americans do not have a single clue of what an economic collapse is all about, and buying guns and ammo, gold or silver, and stocking food is not going to help at all.

    Besides that, challenging the Sovereign —the Federal Government— will be the most egregious stupidity for those who may think that’s the appropriate way to go (specially those who fervidly worship the Constitution and other patriotic baloney).

    Too bad that people in the United States never bothered themselves to learn from people living in the so-called “Third World” how they are able to cope under such extreme and infrahuman circumstances.

    The so-called “American Dream” is over, wake up to reality: the sooner the collapse, the better

    End of story.

    • HeyAHuman

      So your advice is for people to just bend over and take it, then? All I gathered from your statement is that Americans are stupid for preparing in the most logical fashion. What do you suggest people do, wise one?

      • Joel

        Yes, Americans in general are stupid, ignorant, extremely gullible and unable to think for themselves (trained not to think critically).

        Most people in other latitudes of the planet will have fun watching in the news how Americans are panicking in the streets, rioting, “patriots” and militia men being sent to detention camps, Martial Law, curfews, long queues to get food, etc (and all live stream).

        As Manfred pointed correctly, the so-called “American Dream” is over, wake up to reality: the sooner the collapse, the better.

    • grumpyhillbilly

      The third world is rushing to Europe and US. So is the lesson learned we scurry to the countries they vacate. This is question asked by a dumb American.

      • Clodomiro

        The funny thing is that the United States have always been a Third World country (living on credit and debt does not make Americans superior to others), and many US citizens will try to escape to Canada and Mexico during the economic collapse…however they will be detained and prosecuted.

  • DJohn1

    The problem I see is that statistically this should not be happening.
    But it is.
    The laws of random behavior indicate that a lot of things should not be coming apart. But they are.
    That tells me that things that happen that should not happen are not random at all. There is a purpose behind it.
    Normally you have bell curves at the top and the bottom of things.
    The amount of things that entrophy at any one point in time are not supposed to disobey the laws of random behavior. But right now those things coming apart are happening at a far greater occurance than what normal behavior would indicate.
    Your chances of winning the Publisher’s Clearing House are approximately 7 million to 1. It is like you winning every other day.
    Not likely to happen any time soon.
    Which indicates to me that the laws of chance that normally run the Universe are not following the rules.
    The most likely victim of such violations are industries dependent on statistics to make a living. Insurance Industry is very good at predicting events over millions of people.
    They cannot tell you who will die at age 74. They can tell you statistically that so many people in that age bracket will die at 74 and use that to issue life insurance. They are usually very accurate over an entire population of 74 year old people.
    But what if they are wrong? Then they have to pay out.
    Many house insurance companies left Florida because of this fault in predicting house disasters in Florida.
    In the same regards, this statistic of every 7 years bringing a crash?
    That is brilliant analysis. For whatever reason it is occurring, it seems to be set as a valid statistical law.
    But now too many people are aware this is happening.
    Too many people knowing spells disaster for the entire system of financial gain through the stock market.
    If everyone gets out before a crash it accelerates the crash itself.
    So the prophecy is self full-filling.
    In recent times I have seen many signs that entrophy in the entire Universe is starting to get worse. Small things breaking that should not break at all. Like the cables on a lawnmower . . .
    Like plumbing going bad.
    Like cars need repairing more often.
    Like computers breaking down more often due to hardware.
    Right now I see a pension system breaking down and a banking system going nuts.
    Is it being controlled and deliberately happening? Not sure. But it seems likely.
    Like anything that can happen that goes wrong does.
    It isn’t just the financial system at risk. It is the entire planet is experiencing disasters at a level that puts them almost at the point statistically of winning the lottery. Things happening that are way out of proportion to random chance.
    I see a systematic level of disaster occurring way to often to be random.

Not only God’s truth, but a book so full of God’s grace and mercy, his overwhelming love for each and every one of us. A book of hope, when it seems our life is hopeless. A promise of life eternal. Our life here is but such a very short time. But eternal IS forever. I pray that you can and will experience God’s love and forgiveness. He has blessed my life and He can bless yours!

    THE 90% & 10% DILEMMA DURING MARTIAL LAW
    United States of America, Population
    318.9 million (2014)
    – 90% or 287.01 million will accept without too much inconvenience Martial Law
    – 10% or 31.89 million will be staunchly opposed to Martial Law

    31.89 MILLION AMERICANS STAUNCHLY OPPOSED TO MARTIAL LAW
    – 90% or 28.701 million will peacefully protest from their homes against Martial Law
    – 10% or 3.189 million will organize resistance movements against the government

    3.189 MILLION AMERICANS PLAYING THE ROLE OF THE RESISTANCE AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT
    – 90% or 2.8701 million will limit themselves to provide logistics, communications and supply lines
    – 10% or 318.9 thousand will organize themselves into armed militias to fight against government forces

    318.9 THOUSAND AMERICANS PLAYING THE ROLE OF ARMED MILITIAS FIGHTING AGAINST GOVERNMENT FORCES
    – 90% or 287.01 thousand are ages 50 to 80 (including some veterans from wars in Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, Iraq 1991, Afghanistan and Iraq 2003). 90% or 258.309 thousand suffer from some sort of illness, dependants on prescribed medication, overweight, lack of experience in urban warfare tactics, their shooting skills are below modern standards and their weaponry is mainly composed of semi-automatic assault rifles and pistols. Many of them have a tendency in abusing the use of recreational drugs and alcohol (specially the baby-boomers). Most of them believe that the Constitution is the Bill of Rights (and they are utterly ignorant about the US legal system). The majority of them have an associates degree, while few ones were able to graduate from 4-year college. These people are overwhelmed with credit card debt.

    – 10% or 31.89 thousand are ages 18 to 49 (including some veterans from wars in Iraq 1991, Afghanistan and Iraq 2003). 90% or 28.701 thousand do not have any experience in modern urban warfare tactics, their shooting skills meet only minimum modern standards, and their weaponry is mainly composed of semi-automatic assault rifles and pistols. Some of them are obese while others have a tendency in abusing the use of recreational drugs and alcohol. Most of them believe that the Constitution is the Bill of Rights (and they are utterly ignorant about the US legal system). The majority were able to graduate from high school, while others started a career in the community college system but are unwilling to continue due to that costs that carry a higher education.

    – Consequently, about 3200 militia men are the real fighting force having the herculean task of confronting government forces during Martial Law.

    THE OUTCOME:
    – 90% of the armed militias fighting against government forces will perish in the first year of combat operations (about 287 thousand)

    – 10% of the armed militias fighting against government forces will surrender and be sent to DETENTION camps for indefinite periods (about 32 thousand). They will be tried for insurrection and treason in military tribunals, most will face the death penalty and others will be imprisoned for many years (25+ years).

    – 90% of Americans who were involved in the resistance against the government, and limited themselves to provide logistics, communications and supply lines will be registered and sent to RELOCATION camps for indefinite periods (about 2.6 million). The other 10% will be tried for sedition in military tribunals (about 287 thousand) and imprisoned for many years (15+ years).

    The Founders of this nation wrote the law so that the good People of this nation would retain sovereignty.
    I am a proponent of the revitalization of the Militia as it appears in Article 1, Section 8, and recognized as “necessary to the security of a free State”. I’m amazed at how ignorant the public is as to why the congress, nor the states can change this authority. I’m also amazed at how the supposed pro-2nd community will not touch this, and claim to be part of the constitutionally impossible, and thereby “unorganized militia”.

    But what gets me most is that those who have a large audience will not promote the law, nor recognize the benefit of having a constitutional Militia with the authority to “execute the Laws of the Union”. All in the community participate in keeping a safe, and healthy environment for themselves, and children, with the added benefit of arresting those who violate the oath of office.

    This mess we are in is going to get a lot worse, and it will only be the People banning together to survive.

    • grumpyhillbilly

      No offense to our founding fathers or you, but what they wrote is now irrelevant. Has been since the Confederates declared succession. As for most Americans, they will only get testy if their drug and booze supplies dry up.

      Our best hope is the Brics’ new system catches on, and the western elite are left on the outside with a bunch of value challenge wealth. They are devious and without shame, but I am convinced they have no wisdom.

      • Nick

        I’m sorry that you, like many, believe that the rule of law is irrelevant.
        As for secession, I’m not sure what that has to do with Militia statutes that every state has. Militia in the Constitution is based on state statutes not the other way around.
        This is a topic that has been so corrupted, and misunderstood by the populace that it speaks to the hopelessness of the situation.
        I can guarantee that the BRIC’s will not help.

  • Mighty IDF

    Michael, thanks so much for the risk you take in declaring the Word, and for standing up for Israel.

    Have you ever read “The Israel Omen” by David Brennan?

    • Mighty IDF

      Here’s a brief summary of “The Israel Omen” –

      The Madrid Peace Conference

      On October 30, 1991, the Madrid Peace Conference, led by President
      George H.W. Bush and Secretary of State James Baker, began. The purpose of this
      Peace Conference was to force Israel to return the lands it won in the 1967 Six-Day
      War.

      As the attendees began shaking hands, the “Perfect Storm” slammed into
      the northeastern U.S. coast. In addition to causing over $200,000,000 in damage
      to eight states, President Bush’s Kennebunkport, ME home was ripped open by a
      30-ft. wave, exposing the home to the raging ocean and sending the Bush
      furniture into the sea.

      Hurricane Andrew

      On August 24, 1992, as the sixth round of the Madrid Peace Conference
      opened, Hurricane Andrew had just that morning inflicted over $30,000,000,000
      in damage to south Florida. President Bush was unable to attend the conference
      he himself had begun. Andrew is still ranked as the 4th-most
      destructive hurricane in U.S. history.

      The Great Flood

      In April 1993, President Bill Clinton announced that the dormant Madrid
      Peace Conference would resume. Negotiations got underway which would ultimately
      lead to an agreement for the removal of a portion of Israel’s land. According
      to Secretary of State Warren Christopher, official U.S. policy toward Israel
      was the notion of “Land for Peace”.

      That same month, thanks to an unusually-placed Bermuda High, the
      Midwestern U.S. began receiving steady rainfall (the ground was already
      saturated from the previous year’s rains). The placement of this Bermuda High
      caused it to act as a “dam of air” which stopped storms dead in their tracks
      over the Midwest.

      Due to the continuing rain in the Midwest, dams began to burst by the
      end of June. By August, 40 federal levees and 1043 non-federal levees had been
      overtopped. Barge traffic on the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers was halted for
      two months, ten commercial airports were flooded and all railroad traffic in
      the Midwest was halted.

      In the nine affected states, both the 1993 and the 1994 harvests were
      lost. 50,000 homes were destroyed and 75 towns were completely inundated. Total
      damages were $15,000,000,000.

      The Northridge Earthquake

      On January 16, 1994, President Clinton met with Syria’s President
      Hafez-al-Assad to discuss the return of the Golan Heights, captured by Israel
      in 1967.

      Within 24 hours of the Clinton-Assad meeting, the second-most
      destructive natural disaster in the history of the U.S. struck at 4:30 a.m.
      Pacific Time.

      The Northridge Earthquake, registering 6.7 on the Richter Scale, hit
      the San Fernando Valley 20 miles northwest of downtown L.A.

      This earthquake caused severe damage, killing 57 and injuring more than
      9000. Total damage reached $25,000,000,000.

      The Great Texas Flood

      On June 5, 2001, new President George W. Bush, after a period of an
      official “hands-off” policy toward the Middle East, announced he would send CIA
      Director George Tenet to meet with Israelis and Palestinians in an effort to
      get the peace process back on track. The ultimate goal of the process was to
      remove land from Israel in an effort to bring peace to the region.

      The same day, the National Weather Service was watching a low-pressure
      system in the Gulf of Mexico. The system, according to the Houston Chronicle,
      “wasn’t given much of a chance of strengthening.” But by 2:00 p.m. – just after
      the White House announcement – a Hurricane Hunter aircraft flew into the system
      and discovered it was suddenly a full-blown tropical storm, just off the coast
      of Texas!

      The mystery storm caught the National Weather Service off guard. All
      seven of the NWS’s computer models had predicted a different outcome.

      Tropical Storm Allison became what meteorologists consider “the
      nation’s worst tropical storm”, killing 22, damaging 70,000 homes and causing
      over $3,000,000,000 in damage.

      9/11

      In 2001, the Saudis sent a letter to President George W. Bush, stating
      that in their opinion, American policy heavily favored Israel. Further, the
      Saudis threatened to break from their alliance with America.

      Bush’s response:

      “I firmly believe
      the Palestinian people have a right to self-determination and to

      live peacefully and securely in their own state, in
      their own homeland, just as the

      Israelis have the
      right to live peacefully and safely in their own state.”

      This statement by Bush represented a drastic departure from the usual
      U.S. approach to the Middle East.

      As envisioned by Bush, the land for the new State of Palestine would
      come from the ancient lands of Judea and Samaria, promised by God to the Jews
      in the Hebrew Scriptures. These lands were now possessed by Israel since the
      Six-Day War.

      Bush’s letter to the Saudis was received enthusiastically. On Friday,
      September 7, the Washington Post reported a great eagerness on the part of U.S.
      officials to immediately implement the new policy. A big rollout was planned
      for the week of September 10, 2001.

      On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, nineteen Islamic terrorists hijacked
      four U.S. airliners. They crashed two into the World Trade Center towers and one
      onto the Pentagon, while one crashed in Pennsylvania.

      562 Tornados

      On April 30, 2003, the Middle East Quartet formally launched the “Road
      Map” peace plan to achieve a Palestinian state by 2005. The Quartet consists of
      the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations.

      April 30 was also the beginning of “the worst weather in U.S. history”.
      Tornados began striking the midsection of the U.S.

      From April 30 through the fourth week of May, 562 tornados touched down
      in the U.S.

      The Great European Heat Wave

      As a member of the Middle East Quartet, the European Union for the
      first time had a significant role in the effort to divide the Promised Land.

      As the 562-tornado outbreak in the U.S. was ending, the great European
      Heat Wave was just beginning. In France alone, 14,802 people died as a direct
      result of the heat wave. Nearly 18,000 people died in Italy and 2045 in the
      U.K. On August 10, London recorded its first triple-digit (Fahrenheit)
      temperature. 900 people died on that day alone. Germany lost 7000 people to the
      heat wave. Temperatures in Geneva, Switzerland matched Rio de Janeiro summer
      temperatures. In Portugal, 5% of the countryside and 10% of the forests burned.
      52,000 Europeans died in the heat wave.

      Katrina

      On August 15, 2005, as a result of negotiations between the
      administrations of President George W. Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel
      Sharon, Jewish settlers began being forcibly removed from their homes in Gaza,
      part of the Promised Land. The forced evictions were completed on August 23.

      Also on August 23, tropical depression #12 was noticed near the
      Bahamas. By the next day it had strengthened and was named Katrina. Hurricane
      Katrina wiped out the credibility of the Bush presidency and became the most
      expensive natural disaster in history, costing over $100,000,000,000.

      Just over four months later, Ariel Sharon suffered a massive stroke and
      was in a coma until he died.

      The Global Financial Crisis

      President George W. Bush, emboldened perhaps by his 2005 “success” of
      removing Jews from Gaza, restarted the “Road Map” peace process in 2007. The
      Middle East Quartet, which had not met since 2003, was invited by Bush to a
      conference in Annapolis, Maryland.

      This meeting would represent a breakthrough in the attempt to get a
      peace agreement. The framework centered on trading portions of the Promised
      Land in exchange for solemn promises from Israel’s Muslim enemies. Tony Blair,
      former Prime Minister of England, became the Quartet’s main envoy. In his

      bringing stability and peace to the Middle East is a two-state solution.”

      In total, 45 countries and organizations were invited to attend the
      Annapolis conference, making it a truly global attempt to divide Israel.

      The same week that Blair began traveling to the Middle East to gather
      support for the Annapolis conference, something began to go terribly wrong with
      the worldwide banking system. The interest rate that banks pay to each other
      began to rise. That rate historically averaged between 6/100ths of 1% and
      8/100ths of 1%. By September 2007, the rate reached an incredible 94/100ths of
      1%, and by October of 2008 was at 364/100ths. Lending between banks broke down
      and economies worldwide threatened to grind to a halt.

      The global financial meltdown began the same week that Tony Blair, the
      Quartet’s envoy, was organizing a global conference which would meet to divide
      Israel.

      Zechariah 1:18, 19 prophesies about a time far, far in Zechariah’s
      future when four powers would conspire to “scatter” Judah, Israel and
      Jerusalem.

      All U.S. Presidents since Reagan have believed that if they can bring
      “peace” to the Middle East, their legacy would be assured. Without fail, their
      favored method to achieve their objective is to remove land from the Jewish
      State of Israel. Only the most superficial, perfunctory efforts are made to
      stop the terroristic attacks being made by Muslims against innocent Israelis.

      By attempting to divide the Promised Land, our Presidents are placing
      themselves – and the people of the United States – in direct opposition to
      God’s stated purposes.

      I do not believe for a minute that these catastrophes are God’s
      “punishments” for trying to divide Israel. Christ took ALL of mankind’s
      punishment on himself. Rather, our leaders are removing us from the blessing
      and protection of God and placing us in the dangerous position of being outside
      God’s protection.

    Here’s a brief summary of “The Israel Omen” by David Brennan – please read especially the section on The Global Financial Crisis.

    THIS IS A LONG POST

    The Madrid Peace Conference

    On October 30, 1991, the Madrid Peace Conference, led by President George H.W. Bush and Secretary of State James Baker, began. The purpose of this Peace Conference was to force Israel to return the lands it won in the 1967 Six-Day War.

    As the attendees began shaking hands, the “Perfect Storm” slammed into the northeastern U.S. coast. In addition to causing over $200,000,000 in damage to eight states, President Bush’s Kennebunkport, ME home was ripped open by a 30-ft. wave, exposing the home to the raging ocean and sending the Bush
    furniture into the sea.

    Hurricane Andrew

    On August 24, 1992, as the sixth round of the Madrid Peace Conference (the purpose of which was to divide Israel) opened, Hurricane Andrew had just that morning inflicted over $30,000,000,000 in damage to south Florida. President Bush was unable to attend the conference he himself had begun. Andrew is still ranked as the 4th-most destructive hurricane in U.S. history.

    The Great Flood

    In April 1993, President Bill Clinton announced that the dormant Madrid Peace Conference would resume. Negotiations got underway which would ultimately lead to an agreement for the removal of a portion of Israel’s land. According to Secretary of State Warren Christopher, official U.S. policy toward Israel was the notion of “Land for Peace”.

    That same month, thanks to an unusually-placed Bermuda High, the
    Midwestern U.S. began receiving steady rainfall (the ground was already saturated from the previous year’s rains). The placement of this Bermuda High caused it to act as a “dam of air” which stopped storms dead in their tracks over the Midwest.

    Due to the continuing rain in the Midwest, dams began to burst by the end of June. By August, 40 federal levees and 1043 non-federal levees had been overtopped. Barge traffic on the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers was halted for two months, ten commercial airports were flooded and all railroad traffic in the Midwest was halted.

    In the nine affected states, both the 1993 and the 1994 harvests were lost. 50,000 homes were destroyed and 75 towns were completely inundated. Total damages were $15,000,000,000.

    The Northridge Earthquake

    On January 16, 1994, President Clinton met with Syria’s President
    Hafez-al-Assad to discuss the return of the Golan Heights, captured by Israel in 1967.

    Within 24 hours of the Clinton-Assad meeting, the second-most
    destructive natural disaster in the history of the U.S. struck at 4:30 a.m. Pacific Time.

    The Northridge Earthquake, registering 6.7 on the Richter Scale, hit
    the San Fernando Valley 20 miles northwest of downtown L.A.

    This earthquake caused severe damage, killing 57 and injuring more than 9000. Total damage reached $25,000,000,000.

    The Great Texas Flood

    On June 5, 2001, new President George W. Bush, after a period of an official “hands-off” policy toward the Middle East, announced he would send CIA Director George Tenet to meet with Israelis and Palestinians in an effort to get the peace process back on track. The ultimate goal of the process was to remove land from Israel in an effort to bring peace to the region.

    The same day, the National Weather Service was watching a low-pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico. The system, according to the Houston Chronicle, “wasn’t given much of a chance of strengthening.” But by 2:00 p.m. – just after the White House announcement – a Hurricane Hunter aircraft flew into the system
    and discovered it was suddenly a full-blown tropical storm, just off the coast of Texas!

    The mystery storm caught the National Weather Service off guard. All seven of the NWS’s computer models had predicted a different outcome.

    Tropical Storm Allison became what meteorologists consider “the
    nation’s worst tropical storm”, killing 22, damaging 70,000 homes and causing over $3,000,000,000 in damage.

    9/11

    In 2001, the Saudis sent a letter to President George W. Bush, stating that in their opinion, American policy heavily favored Israel. Further, the Saudis threatened to break from their alliance with America.

    Bush’s response:
    “I firmly believe the Palestinian people have a right to self-determination and to live peacefully and securely in their own state, in their own homeland, just as the Israelis have the right to live peacefully and safely in their own state.”

    This statement by Bush represented a drastic departure from the usual U.S. approach to the Middle East.

    As envisioned by Bush, the land for the new State of Palestine would
    come from the ancient lands of Judea and Samaria, promised by God to the Jews in the Hebrew Scriptures. These lands were now possessed by Israel since the Six-Day War.

    Bush’s letter to the Saudis was received enthusiastically. On Friday,
    September 7, the Washington Post reported a great eagerness on the part of U.S. officials to immediately implement the new policy. A big rollout was planned for the week of September 10, 2001.

    On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, nineteen Islamic terrorists hijacked four U.S. airliners. They crashed two into the World Trade Center towers and one onto the Pentagon, while one crashed in Pennsylvania.

    562 Tornados

    On April 30, 2003, the Middle East Quartet formally launched the “Road Map” peace plan to achieve a Palestinian state by 2005. The Quartet consists of the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations.

    April 30 was also the beginning of “the worst weather in U.S. history”. Tornados began striking the midsection of the U.S.

    From April 30 through the fourth week of May, 562 tornados touched down in the U.S.

    The Great European Heat Wave

    As a member of the Middle East Quartet, the European Union for the
    first time had a significant role in the effort to divide the Promised Land.

    As the 562-tornado outbreak in the U.S. was ending, the great European Heat Wave was just beginning. In France alone, 14,802 people died as a direct result of the heat wave. Nearly 18,000 people died in Italy and 2045 in the U.K. On August 10, London recorded its first triple-digit (Fahrenheit) temperature. 900 people died on that day alone. Germany lost 7000 people to the heat wave. Temperatures in Geneva, Switzerland matched Rio de Janeiro summer temperatures. In Portugal, 5% of the countryside and 10% of the forests burned.
    52,000 Europeans died in the heat wave.

    Katrina

    On August 15, 2005, as a result of negotiations between the
    administrations of President George W. Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Jewish settlers began being forcibly removed from their homes in Gaza, part of the Promised Land. The forced evictions were completed on August 23.

    Also on August 23, tropical depression #12 was noticed near the
    Bahamas. By the next day it had strengthened and was named Katrina. Hurricane Katrina wiped out the credibility of the Bush presidency and became the most expensive natural disaster in history, costing over $100,000,000,000.

    Just over four months later, Ariel Sharon suffered a massive stroke and was in a coma until he died.

    The Global Financial Crisis

    President George W. Bush, emboldened perhaps by his 2005 “success” of removing Jews from Gaza, restarted the “Road Map” peace process in 2007. The Middle East Quartet, which had not met since 2003, was invited by Bush to a conference in Annapolis, Maryland.

    This meeting would represent a breakthrough in the attempt to get a
    peace agreement. The framework centered on trading portions of the Promised Land in exchange for solemn promises from Israel’s Muslim enemies. Tony Blair, former Prime Minister of England, became the Quartet’s main envoy. In his farewell address to the British Parliament, Blair said, “…the only way of bringing stability and peace to the Middle East is a two-state solution.”

    In total, 45 countries and organizations were invited to attend the
    Annapolis conference, making it a truly global attempt to divide Israel.

    The same week that Blair began traveling to the Middle East to gather support for the Annapolis conference, something began to go terribly wrong with the worldwide banking system. The interest rate that banks pay to each other began to rise. That rate historically averaged between 6/100ths of 1% and 8/100ths of 1%. By September 2007, the rate reached an incredible 94/100ths of
    1%, and by October of 2008 was at 364/100ths. Lending between banks broke down and economies worldwide threatened to grind to a halt.

      Mighty IDF, I read your entire post (above), and what I (choose to) conclude from your post is that – it is likely that a “secret society” (probably head-quartered in Israel or US or UK and with very powerful influence and control in the Government and Military structures in Israel, the UK, the USA, etc.), has a “secret technology” that they use to affect/cause Weather phenomenon (i.e. massive Hurricanes, Earthquakes, etc.), and ORCHESTRATE events like “9/11” – which was/is OBVIOUSLY not a genuine terrorist attack – like the US Media would have you believe.

      I also conclude, that is would be the same (or similar) “secret society”, that is using their “secret technology” to create the Crop Circle phenomenon – the aim of which is to keep people “mystified” and “perplexed” – which in turn tends to “enforce” religious/mystical belief systems – which in turn generally helps to maintain (or prevent genuine revolutionary actions against) the decadent and decaying Capitalist economic system.

    LOL

  • An opinion 😉

    I’m seeing more and more point-of-view excess one way or another here. Since the years I’m reading Michael’s blog I never saw so much extreme in the comments on what will happen or not. So, a little bit of in-between thinking for once :-)

    By extreme I mean, some sees that nothing will happen at all, everything will be ok and the same as before (Normalcy Bias), at the other side you have those who see the end of the world happening in September, the world completely and totally collapse (Doom & Gloom).

    Will something happen in the Economy, I’m absolutely sure about that. Will it be huge? Yes, fully convince about it (not because of any prediction, but because of the shear size of the numbers involved – an infinite consumption in a finite resource availability is unsustainable).

    However, will October see a 2015 Crisis Post-World in fire and smoke. No, I don’t believe one bit of it. A Collapse takes time, and a trigger could be an Economic Crash, but the world will not end…yet.
    Prepping yes, but life goes on. Which is why, like Michael, I kind of appreciate Alwaystomorrow’s countdown, it keeps things grounded in reality, which for a Realist is a really good idea. A Collapse TAKES TIME and who ever knows a little bit of History, knows that even the Romans did not know right away that their Empire did collapse (even before the last West Roman Emperor seated) – it took at least one generation to fully realize that fact.

    Michael did not predict an “Economic Crash for September and then the End of the World”, but he pointed out the whole second semester of 2015 for things to unfold (especially the last four months with a focus on September for a crash as the starting point because of different cycle theories) and CONTINUING in 2016, 17 etc… he is not the only one who “predicted” the same average period for a real big crash (usually between 2015-2020 according to other experts) – so why are people so into “This is the End of the World” kind of thinking? It is not. It could be a different world for sure, but not the end of it.
    (and for those here who believe in the Bible they perfectly know well that this is NOT the end yet. Far from it)

    IMHO Fear is the most unwise thing possible, it freezes and paralyses the mind (even more so for Bible believing people – are they not supposed to trust the Heavenlies, and raise their head IN JOY after all?) – so, Prepare, Pray (for those who need it), Enjoy Life as it comes, but do not fear… Behind the gray and dark clouds, the Sun still does shine for all mankind.

    • Bubba Johnson

      Nice post.

    • Nemnor

      ‘Joel Peeters’, you stated – “…an infinite consumption in a finite resource availability is unsustainable…”.

      I hope you are aware that “infinite consumption”, though OBVIOUSLY irrational and unsustainable in a World with virtually and practically LIMITED resource, is nevertheless the natural and automatic tendency of ANY Capitalist economic system (“free market” or not). (right?)

      The irrationality of the decadent Capitalist system goes even further, with it’s increasing NEED to create/generate “artificial demands”. More often than not, the main reason the Capitalists spend millions (even billions?) in advertising/marketing campaign is to – GENERATE a “demand”. Take a look at 2 of the most popular (pop) drinks, which contain a bunch of artificial flavors and colouring. NO one really NEEDS these UNHEALTHY drinks (and especially so, when there are easily accessible healthy alternatives). (right?)

      Ultimately, Capitalism (in ANY form, “free market” or not) is NOT sustainable, and the future of the World under Capitalism is (eventually) total socioeconomic collapse/chaos and/or WW-III.

      • Bubba Johnson

        Lighten up Francis. Cant we have one country kinda still like Capitalism?

        • Nemnor

          NO, not “kinda like Capitalism” – the ONLY permanent solution is a clear break away from producing for “profits’ to producing to meet the genuine needs of the “rational” individual. Any other way (“kinda like Capitalism”) is ultimately NOT sustainable and eventually WILL collapse and/or bring about WW-III

          • Bubba Johnson

            Nevermind

      • Quote – “… the natural and automatic tendency of ANY Capitalist economic system…”

        WRONG!

        It is the natural and automatic tendency of MANKIND. Period!
        Learn History and Prehistory for that matter.

  • CASTIEL

    I hope september brings so much pain to these so called elites that even their dead grandmothers going to feel it……and then we have the so called sheeps ( they are billions) that admire these wolfs or do nothing to revert this situation…..Lets see all of this crap burn….I imagine the expression of their stupid faces when they can t even put gasoline in their ferraris..or even find food..and to those who like the supidity in our society lets see them burn too….i guess when their wi-fi or facebook or the tv dont work anymore they are going to die from a heart brake….:).The ones who can live by what nature gives are very few……and the others have no other option than dying in the time when all collapse
    Well could not be september or this year or this decade, but i know that one day God will show to these people how irrelevant and weak they are..Being humble and a honoured person are things that disappeared in this world…..evil is all around and its like a cancer that somehow will destroy everything….

          Meh, you’re right. I got carried away. I’ll save the trolling for fwalker15’s comments only. The guy is so easy to impersonate though; just swype his tiny handful of catchphrases like a semi-retarded baboon, throw in a few “Roflmao’s” and Viola!!!

            What else do you expect from his kind? They’re clueless on capital markets, clueless on economics, completely spun by media and uneducated banter regarding geopolitics. They really believe that although they have accomplished and accumulated near nothing in a sugar coated world environment with every imaginable resource available that only if that collapses then they will thrive and excel. Theyre as demented and deranged as a human can possibly be. These clowns are so weak that it makes them the greatest comedy on the entire internet and quite possible the entire universe. Roflmao

          • fwalker16

            ….. that’s it? That’s the best you can do? You’ll have to pardon me for not accepting financial advice from a guy that cannot write above a fifth grade level. My goodness, if you were any dumber you’d be a stick. I can’t believe you even took the time to respond. Hurt feelings? :'(

          • fwalker15

            I’m not providing financial advice whatsoever. I’m here to laugh at you misguided fools. The comedy is priceless.

          • fwalker16

            That’s awfully bold talk from a guy that never finished middle school. However, if you are what you claim to be, you’re one heck of an inspiration! If a guy with no education can make money in these markets, anybody can!
            Sadly, I don’t think that’s the case. You’re comments are devoid of intelligence and reek of peter envy. You could give jelqing a try! 😉

          • fwalker15

            You’re comments = roflmao. Aside from that if you actually had any education regarding the capital markets you would be profiting from them. It is obvious that do not. Your only value is in absurd and comical words on blogs and as somewhat of a source for inverse sentiment trading data.

          • fwalker16

            Yet another lame, predictable response filled with grammatical errors. Pathetic. I’m starting to feel bad for you. This is like kicking a puppy…

          • fwalker15

            Kick away I enjoy the comedy of your kind on financial and economic blogs with zero education zero market experience and zero net worth pretending to have half a clue or on this forum actually forecasting the collapse of civilizations. No need to feel bad for me the desperation of your kind is beyond obvious in your comments and provides a great parody- if only there was a video feed to view the pathetic existence your kind live. Roflmaoooo

          • fwalker16

            I’m far more handsome, and in far better shape than you. 😉
            What were you saying about a “pathetic existence?”

            I sure hope you’re as successful as you claim to be because that seems to be all you have going for you! I really doubt it though. Like the man with a large member, a truly successful person rarely feels the need to brag.

            Now by all means, continue to cry. It’s like music to my ears. >:)

          • fwalker15

            As I said degrade away. I enjoy the comedy your kind provide when markets are closed. Meanwhile all you have are empty words on an economic blog a subject you know nothing about and with your net worth and skill set likely have no need. Throw in a few of the end of capitalism and civilization notions and compelling reasons for vitamins canned foods and water for the imminent collapse as well. Peasants like you are absolutely the greatest comedy available.

    Great article Michael, as usual. Glad you had some family time. Looking forward, I personally think that in lieu of Sep 13 being a Sunday, that the focus should be on Friday Sep 11. Not only is that the last day for open markets, it is ironically the anniversary from 2001. The potential for instability and a black swan event are very heightened for that day, in my opinion. I wouldn’t be shocked if the markets are suspended that day with a “bank holiday” on Monday Sep 14. If I’m close, look for a geo-political event to shift the focus and blame. Thanks for all your work on your blog, Michael.

      Interesting…September is going to shock a lot of people…

      • Kurt

        Thank you. I agree.

      • fwalker15

        Your kind will obviously be even more shocked when you’re here October and see markets much higher

        • Kurt

          You may think my realistic views of markets are wrong, you are certainly entitled to your perspective. A part of me hopes you are right and I am wrong. However, there is no argument for this being a “free market” when there have been 7 yrs. and 4+ trillion in QE pumped into Wall St, along with 6 yrs. of ZIRP. It’s artificial and you know it.

          • fwalker15

            Much of that qe number remained on banks balance sheets to cure financial ratio imbalances and never flowed into the broader economy either by “moral suasion” or by lack of incentives for banks to generate loans and create capital by use of reverse repo agreements banks were able to “generate minimal income” and “build equity” via those funds. For that reason the velocity of money in the broader economy slowed substantially and now deflation may be a collateral risk. The frb has already signalled and warned several times they would like to see rates higher. That may actually be a net positive as banks will again have more incentive to take risk and generate loans getting back to their normal course of business and create capital into the broader economy and maybe an increase in cap ex spending and wages leading to increased demand follows. All may be net positives true China recently tried to undermine those efforts but I would not count on it ending civilizations. The stock market cycle is a different story a forward looking discounting mechanism that a 10% correction was long overdue needed and expected. Is now in the rearview mirror as mutual funds print q3 reports end if sept expect markets higher. As well their fiscal years end in sept so they may have exited ahead weeks ago in those record outflows now the wait the 30 days for wash sale rules and back in for end of sept. Hopefully a crash or 30% decline from the peak presents itself as buying opp in 4th qtr or traditional adage is 2 bumps then a stumble – after the second rate hike defines the trajectory no voodoo magic super natural end of the world just normal business activity and normal transitions. Lots of opportunities may likely be missed by those cowering in fear buying vitamins canned foods and water rather than quality performing assets as the discounts present themselves. Jmho

          • Kurt

            i greatly appreciate your perspective. All great points. My guess is you work on the AWM (asset wealth management) side of banking/finance. You are correct in there needs to be a market correction. You say 30%, I feel it’s more in range for 50%. I also agree the frb needs to increase interest rates. However, .25 bips or .50 bips are b.s., and not a correction. If the goal is to have a free market, capitalist system then all of the fed policies over the last 7 years, since the last correction, have done nothing but prolonged the inevitable. As an analyst in Global Loan Services, yes those damn DERIVATIVES, it is obvious that the transfer of QE has not taken place to Main Street, imo. That was the goal and it has not happened. Further, keeping the fed funds rate at .35% is directly tied to the inability for the U.S. to pay the interest on the debt. A mere 25 bps can change the debt/budget drastically since most of our debt has been shifted to 1yr Treasuries. China has nothing to do with our economic challenge and our FED deserves the brunt of the blame. But factor in the realization that the dollar is on its way down, like all other currencies. The markets may not be the gloom n doom you joke about, but a rapid decline in the dollar just may be. I sincerely appreciate your view. Tell me if I’m right on the AWM?

          • GoldenGirl

            Also, and please correct me if I am mistaken, but with regard to the frb raising interest rates, they are really in a no-win situation, as pension funds are in dire straits. Don’t they need 8% to remain solvent? Also, my understanding is that there isn’t enough retail participation in the stock market for there to be a bubble. The real problem is with bonds. What I have learned, after being around markets all of my adult life, is to start looking at the cycles, watching the trends, looking at everything on a global level, and listening to what the market is saying. Having this kind of knowledge allows me to look at markets without emotion, which is a huge benefit. That doesn’t mean that we are not in deep trouble, but the crash we are truly looking at is a crash in government (socialism), imho. Time will tell.

          • Kurt

            Pensions are also in concern but where does the 8% number come from? It would depend on which index the pension is tied to. Trends are certainly important which this article discusses several trends. Why the interest in bonds? 2% return over ten years after paying an upfront service fee? No thanks. Instead of markets and bonds have you considered hard assets? Tangible assets?

          • fwalker15

            The issue with the treasury bonds does seem to be the key as “unknown forces” lean on China’s markets they “retaliate” by selling bonds (as through their 08 derive windfall USA for all intents and purposes owes them infinity) aside from that they can now sell the bonds without compromising their asymmetric integrated warfare policy the buyer of last resort steps in and buys to maintain orderly market next they lean on the stock market triggering risk off or pushing capital closer in the risk curve or flight to quality and “reallocate” those bonds likely when that cycle or game eases then pressure may be off stock market for a moment and price discovery should find equilibrium. The tail is trying to wag the dog to undermine and disrupt the monetary policy changes and to cause deflationary issues or liquidity trap scenario. They are brilliant and calculating and super strong but I don’t think they want civilization to collapse as many here forecast :(

          • Kurt

            There is a major dump on treasuries, you know so. Does it have the impact on the dollar that many think? The fed balance sheet is way too high. The dollar debasing is a critical point no?

          • fwalker15

            The frb surely has expanded the money supply and their balance sheet but most is with the banks and not making its way through to the broader economy and that slowing or bottleneck in the velocity of money is likely causing the deflationary environment and the potential debasing
            For that reason an increase in rates may provide an increase in incentives to create loans thereby creating capital and increase the velocity of money all positive for banks the economy for savers and believe it or not creeping to moderate inflation 2-4% is positive for stocks and markets.

          • Kurt

            I agree, but increasing rates will destroy the dollar. Which is why they can’t. More QE? QE4 is the only way to delay the inevitable. Too much debt. The fed has painted itself into a corner. Economics 101. We are a debt based society, there is no incentives to save. Easy credit has kept this economy afloat and it is time to pay the piper. We don’t have it.

          • GoldenGirl

            I think you may have misunderstood my comment. I am not interested in bonds and own none in my portfolio. I also own hard/tangible assets in a number of forms. It just seems odd to me that with the fall of the market, we saw money flee to safety (bonds), which I have no intention of doing, especially if we are looking at a sovereign debt crisis. I’m just trying to learn from those who obviously are more experienced than I and have something profitable to say ~ and it ain’t easy wading through all the flak on this forum. Thanks for your response.

          • Kurt

            I understand. The fact that you are engaging and accepting of different perspectives puts you ahead of most. Good luck with all your goals.

          • GoldenGirl

            Thanks!

          • fwalker15

            The last two nights when China sold off the bonds sold off and even as stocks weakened and bonds traditionally caught a bid on flight to quality it wasn’t happening even with today’s heavy selling in stocks bonds remain weak those dynamics there seem to be the most significant issue and risk of all. Maybe a way to hedge is TMV or SBND that’s not advice or recommendation consult your professional for that jmho

          • GoldenGirl

            Appreciate the insight. Thanks.

          • Kurt

            Sounds like you may be positioned well. I understand. We are in a market in which you need the ability to make nanosecond computer transactions to stay aligned with the professionals. The VIX says that you are at great risk to engage, so for me I will stick with tangibles, and the naysayers can buy dips all day. I’ve seen this movie before, it doesn’t end well.

          • GoldenGirl

            I hear you. My whole thing is gaining wisdom ~ about anything, not just the financial/economic world, and seeing how it all fits together. That involves unlearning a lot of what I have learned and seeking out those who are more informed than I, which isn’t hard. The market has been good to me over the last few years, but that is just one egg in my basket. Personally, I’m not so sure this movie will end well, either. All the best to you.

  • I like the fact that you did this. That’s the way to go with any “prediction”.

    Now, although it is good to do that kind of work, the best to do to know if he is right or not will still be to see things unfold. The only correlation possible with that kind of “prediction” (either Shemita or any other Economic cycles as a matter of fact) is the visible reality of an event predicted, because you certainly know as well as me that number can be interpreted in many ways – pro or con – even if the gathering of numbers had been done carefully and honestly at the source.

    As for what Jonathan Cahn said, we must not overlook the fact that he himself is pretty careful about even the Shemita “Prediction” – to quote him “God does not have to do anything, but He could. The point is to be prepared whatever the case.” In a sense the Shemita notion took a life of its own…

    • Adrian

      Thanks for commenting Joel. Now Cahn makes fairly wide claims: “The Shemitah forms an underlying pattern and dynamic that…will exhibit consistent characteristics, operate through a consistent dynamic, and produce consistent repercussions. “(p.63)

      AND

      “We have witnessed an amazing correlation. In the past four decades of modern history the economic and financial
      realms of America and the world have followed the ancient mystery that ordains economic cessation and financial
      collapse taking place according to a seven-year cycle.” (p.114)

      These are very sweeping claims that can and should be verified empirically with the data. Even though the way we handle data is never perfect, one can and has to verify such claims. I do not accuse Cahn of date setting which he seeks to avoid. But he teaches a judgment mechanism that was never applied to ancient Israel (they did not receive economic judgment in line with their behavior according to a fixed 7 year cycle), nor can such a mechanism be found in recent history.

    The signs are everywhere, for those who are willing to look. September almost seems like a “perfect storm” convergence.

    By the end of the month, half of the world will probably be singing along to “A Brave New World” (you know, the song from the movie “Aladdin”). If in fact the foundation of the new world order is laid this month, then yes. There is Big Trouble Ahead.

    America is already under God’s judgment, whether you are aware of it or not. The recent same-sex marriage ruling passed by the Supreme Court was a huge step downward. And we just keep pushing the envelope. What outrageous thing will Miley Cyrus do next? (If you wonder why she likes to stick out her tongue, read Isaiah 57:3-4.)

As Christians, we must pray fervently and reach out to as many people as possible

      It’s the end of September. If this crash does not happen within the next week, when do you think it will happen?

  • The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 469.7 points, or 2.8%, to 16058.3, the S&P 500 fell 58.3 points, or 3.8%, to 1913.8 and the Nasdaq Composite tumbled 140.4 points, or 2.9%, to 4636.1

    Yep, things are going better since last week (sarcasm)

  • G21

    Graham Summers, Chief Market Strategist for Phoenix Capital Research, has this to say about the Tech Stock Bubble collapse –

    “In a six month period, investors moved stocks down 19%, up 8%, then down 27%, then up 21%, then down 22%, then up 34%, then down 17%, then up 16%, then down 28%, then up 16%, and finally down 17%. Only at that point did stocks break their trendline for the bubble (the blue line) and it became obvious that the bubble had burst.

    My point with all of this is that even when the bubble was both very specific AND obvious, the collapse was neither quick nor clean. There were several large 20%+ crashes, but overall, it was a roller coaster with jarring rallies that gradually wore its way down.”

    The NASDAQ never reclaimed its highs after that crash, and the Dow will never reclaim its highs after this crash.

      Are you paying attention? The Dow is down 2000 pts. A collapse is not a singular event, but a collection of continuous events. It’s systemic. Markets, rates, currencies, trade. I’m sure “fwalker” may disagree, but we are in it. Where the bottom will be is the question.

      • fwalker15

        We may well be but doubtful it all ends in September based on the super natural forces or cycles the nuts craft

        • Kurt

          I don’t see this as a supernatural event but more like laws of economics. It is so over inflated. Artificially. I appreciate unadulterated markets, where companies go bankrupt due to poor operations, and are not propped up for back end gains. Companies succeed and fail because the markets decide their fate, not because the fed or Washington has an influence.

            That reality has existed for decades maybe since inception and not likely to change muchthe system obviously may not be perfect but it still provides plenty of opportunities for you to benefit IMHO

    • fwalker15

      Rumor has it they have agreed to open it just once on Sunday September 13th to facilitie that scheduled crash. Wasn’t that thoughtful of them?

    Sadly, those in despair woudn’t be able to post for you, so you’ll never know.

    How do we “get ready”? What kind of challenges will we face? Do you mean we should sell our stocks? Close out our 401Ks? Withdraw all our funds from the bank? Stock up on food? You have me very worried. You’ve offered the ominous warning, now some specific guidance would be appreciated.

    Hmmm, no I think I will stay if its all the same. I kinda enjoy being the recipient of all that the creator of the universe bestows upon me. You should try it. God Bless.

    Are the markets going to tank next week 7 – 11 Septmeber 2015. It to me seems it will. as the charts point out…

  • Heinrich van Rooi

    Did the US employment dropped to 5.1% in real terms!!!! No, No, No… Look there are still people that think is it, but they are in for a shock in the months ahead…If the US economy was able to expanded then why was less people employed than anticipated… As conditions tend to sour than one would expect less employment ( leading indicator)like now and more unemployment( lagging indicator) like now, if the business cycle shift

  • Itanimullikcuf

    Let’s don’t forget about 14th anniversary of 9/11 and threats of ISIS when thousands of IS fighters are coming amongst hundreds of thousands of refugees into Europe right now.

  • WhoCaresFU

    At this point the feminized, lawyer driven, nanny-state loving US deserves to collapse. Just let it go. We will just have to deal with the crap that follows, which is sad…

  • James

    September is almost over.
    The stock market has not crashed.
    Nothing interesting has happened.

  • Justin

    If nothing happens in September, but I think it would be safe to say that Michael is wrong. But regardless, we still need to be alert at all times. It’s even possible that the Elite could be holding off the crash, because they know that so many people expect it. If they were smart, they would hold it off until people least suspect it.
