That was my take, too. Putting feelers out to see what resistance might be encountered.
I think they want a dove to continue maxing out the payload.
Seems the central planners are pumping on overdrive with shameless, greedy, reckless abandon because they ALREADY KNOW there's going to be a system wide implosion where none of the money will need to be paid back.
Something like a cyber attack on the banks or the grid down for an extended period of time that will wipe out digital financial records across a broad spectrum.
I realize I sound like I'm sinking into the rabbit hole, but--if you think about it, it could be an explanation for the relentlessly distorted bubble on QE. Take as much as you can while you can get it - attitude.
I'm a realist treading water in an ocean of disnformation.
5 years ago they were able to blame it on the EZ and get tarp in place. No more bullets left after printing and prissing off the world; China, Russia and India are now backing their currencies with gold, and the sitch in the MiddleEast is ripe now for chaos.
And they may get to blame it all on a comet!
Watch rhetoric ramp up emotions this week. POTUS won't budge...forcing govt shut down.
All the pieces are in place for a total social, cultural breakdown to enable control of the world's future direction.
You say Z iionist, I say Reptilian. po-tay-to...po-tah-to.
And silver...and a cave or underground bunker.
An event will happen sometime after 10/1 that results in martial law...at the very least. Likely a false flag on the internet and/or power grid - initiated by our govt and blamed on Syria or the comet. The Navy yard shooting was a drill for DHS.
Some people are saying if we hear that (all) the banks need to close...particularly on a Friday - as the result of a "cyber hacking - but it will be fixed soon..." That's the warning that we'll have approximately 72 hours before martial law.
Make sure you take plenty of cash out of the bank before that happens.
New World Order inciting hate and chaos so we need them to give us order. Problem--- reaction--- solution.
Shades of totalitarianism history repeating.
When there's enough civil unrest and chaos, people will "gratefully" accept the conditions of a new police state.
Always ask yourself who benefits from your belief.
Truth has no agenda.
Stoopid ya hoo...I wrote b*u*g*g*e*r.
"It's not what it once was..." is the #$%$.
No need to risk when you already know the outcome.
You'll only score on VXX when the market moves down steep and fast...then get out. When they walk it down there's no volatility because no one is sure it will keep going...so that uncertainty (lack of fear) kills VIX and VXX products.
X - If this comes to pass(and there may be a drill in advance manufactured to get military in place) ....they will be ordered as "peace-keepers" in a time of martial law. But if the grid goes down for anything length of time...food, water and looting will get ugly fast in the cities. At that point, I would expect some-or many US personnel to abandon the "mission" to be with their families and help others.
Whether natural or by design, it all serves to empower the government.
Among other things - like the indifference of mass money printing and defiant market pumping, this explains the FEMA support of DHS riot control training activity in the North East...with 15K Russian troops who have no emotional ties to Americans and could carry out orders when US personnel might not.
There could be a false flag drill any time after Oct 1st...grid down on the East Coast--at least--to get martial law in place in preparation for an EMP from the "Kill Shot" solar flare due any time after mid November.
Even as they prepare, the government and NASA deny and dismiss, but when it happens...be assured we will get no warning...and if the grid is down, so is our ability to communicate. Don't take my word for it...research and prepare. Remotely populated areas near fresh water will have the best chance of being sanctuaries outside of martial law. People will need to help each other.
Maybe I've tripped into the rabbit hole, but the best case scenario is that none of this comes to pass, the world goes on with the usual chaos, and you think I've lost it. But if there's a shred of accuracy that will help anyone by knowing in advance, the ridicule is inconsequential. I don't know for sure what's up...but the information is too compelling to ignore.
I couldn't live with myself if any of this comes to pass and I'd done nothing to try and help people prepare.
I desperately hope to be wrong.
He was very nonchalant in that interview...saying he didn't pay attention to QE taper or not..."it will end eventually". Yeah - right.
If it's not this...it WILL be something else...whether it happens, or they CREATE it.
They WANT a war in the region, GD it!
Sure....sanctuary. :-) We should ALL have a plan.
If this comes down and the power grid gets fried, none of this daily squabbling about markets and politics and money will matter anymore.
It's been surprising to hear them, but I'm glad they're speaking out, too.
