    Absolutely every IOTA of evidence I’ve seen about this entire race has been raising flags with me.

    But what still doesn’t connect: Brexit, Duterte’s election and the fact that Trump truly means what he says and demonstrates it even when no one is looking.

    Trump is either a true outsider or he’s one of the best tricks every devised by mankind. But the Brexit and Duterte successes prove that wrong.

    On one hand the world is finally enacting change. On the other, everywhere I look and seriously - everything I see - is complete fakery.

    This is the most confusing and frankly scary time I think the world has ever witnessed. We are either about to become a “prison planet” full of slaves or we are about to turn the tides and create a wonderful planet with (at least some) prosperous people again.

    Revelations becomes clearer and clearer everyday. The next turn could either be the second coming of Christ or the coming of the Anti-Christ. Trump matches the description of neither.

    Nor does Hillary. Nor Obama. The Anti Christ will be loved by the entire human race. His words will unite all of the people and they will bow before him without hesitation.

    But this tipping point is on the fulcrum that is so sharp and has such steep sides that my mind is about to melt.

    How can even the most pious among us make this call ? We can’t. Thus, Revelations. It’s to a point where this is no longer faith to me. This is real. The only thing that our minds have the ability to process is the Rapture. There is no control or mastery of any domain even within ourselves.

    Combinations of books are available for it, but my library is gone and I actually got more -supporting- info from youtube and the productions of those in the sovereign study, “crash course” on credit and other readings about maritime law.

    As an analyst, when I work with data I have to have some background info to understand it and build trends and forecasts. So it’s my job to put 2 and 2 together sometimes, back up the relationship with credible facts and sources and then build arguments from there. So I won’t just grab something like the Magna Carta and build a single stream of predictions and trendlines from there - I will match something like the Magna Carta to a series of other interactions to support the overall structure of what I’m building.

    It’s visualized like building a tower. If you have a single line stretching to the top, what you have is a wobbly stake in the ground. But if you found several lines into the ground, then build a lattice work of relationships and interactions you’ll have something more like a cage or 4 legged tower with guy wires when you’re done.

    One is easy, the other is tough.

    A few important things to know:
    Slaves WERE taken from Africa but not all slaves. In fact, very few slaves come from Africa. Most slaves began as native americans, Mexicans and Creoles. In second and third generation slaves the cross breeding blurred those lines.

    Some slavery IS started by hunting down individual human beings. This is why the Sudanese tribes put those horrible plates in their ears and lips. They do it to look unappealing to slave traders (Yes.. even today. Arabic countries still get their slaves locally sourced.. more on that in a few)

    To really get people onto boats, peacefully and easily it’s better to just convince them. The trip to the US and the establishment of work and livelihood was very expensive. Most people would trade their artifacts for currency that could be used in the new land to buy a small plot of land or establish themselves as laborers in the New World. Seeing that, the great banking houses (Like Lloyd’s of London) developed a system to remove the wealth from the person and transfer it to some kind of new wealth while they skim off the top.

    In context : A rich African family wishes to immigrate to the US. They take all of their worldly possessions and simply sell the lot to an investment group in exchange for money that will work in the destination land (Say.. Belgium). In Africa their possessions are priceless. But in Belgium the total value of that stuff is garbage. So they aren’t going to issue a Belgian fortune for African goods. What they will do, however, is keep those African goods that may trade well in Haiti, while moving Haitian sugar into Belgian markets to make a killing on one good and then buy another good at rock-bottom pricing. This still happens today. That’s what Lloyd’s of London still does (Although Insurance is the primary name of that game)

    A complete package is setup by an inventive company called “American Express” which specifically moves people into America. They issue Credit “which is like cash” for real foreign money and then drop off their clients on the shores to those who backed up their credit (Their new masters to whom they are indentured servants) The credit is useful on the plantations where they can use it to buy shovels and food and water and shelter. They will work off their debt to the plantation owner and in exchange get nothing until they are finally released from indentured servitude.

    Now, think about African Diamond mines. In Africa the miners are actually paid. They are paid $3 a day but then charged $1 for a shovel and $2 for water. Something like this happens in Credit only instead of flat-out charging the days wages ... compound interest is created. The slaves never get out of debt.

    A new generation born slaves have no idea what is going on, and they are traded as flat-out property and simply labor until they die or whatever. The debt is carried over for some cases, for other the contracts are forgotten but most the contracts aren’t fully satisfied because minimum payments only extend the contract terms.

    How did Credit card companies start ? Seriously - How do you start a credit company ? There are instruction manuals on starting a credit company, but no one has yet to successfully do that. The Discover card did this through counting security trading as cash following a re-insurance model established by the great re-insurers like General Reinsurance and National Reinsurance. Because Insurance is a winning game, flat out. Insurance companies don’t lose. They create nothing but mazes that end in their favor - you losing.

    Finally, think about a job working in a museum. Imagine you were getting paid for that job, but that pay was only good in the gift shop. That is economic slavery, and that is what a nationalist-only currency gets you. Since 1972 when we left the gold standard, our entire currency has been technically slavery. Although it doesn’t feel like it.

    Imagine a plantation filled with hundreds of strong, angry blacks all capable of teaming up on their masters and killing and overthrowing them. Ask yourself : “Why didn’t they do just that ? They had everything they needed to break away !” the truth is that most early slaves WANTED to be there. It was what they asked for, and it was what they thought they were getting. Interest and Compound Interest was something other countries simply never had. And something you COULD NOT have unless the currency was Credit.

    This is just fine in International Waters, where Maritime law exists. Which is why slaves stopped coming from Natives, Canadian natives and Mexicans after awhile and started coming only from over-seas .. including Creole cultures.

    Very few American blacks can trace their DNA to Africa. The term African-American is a smoke screen to hide their true lineage and the true nature of companies still in existence.

    Lastly (I know I did a “Finally” before.. but I’m not an author so bear with me) Did you ever wonder why the following things are true:
    1. You get credit at age 18
    2. That credit starts good. You don’t have to earn anything.
    3. When you do good things with your credit, it doesn’t really go up. It goes down pretty easily but building credit isn’t a matter of demonstrating financial responsibility it’s a matter of taking out loans and repaying those loans with interest. If you take a $5000 loan and repay it a month later you will gain no credit. You must pay the interest on it first. When you make principle-only payments you can then pay off the original amount to get credit built.

    This is because your Credit is not based on labor. It is based on the trade of your birth certificate (Which is mandatory) and you.. as a documented citizen.. are held as collateral in international waters / international trade / maritime law matters. This is why even with an A+ international credit rating, the United States (Not the United States of America) must still produce collateral to get loans. They must present collateral and the US collateral is all used up. (Which is why our national parks closed down during the last government shutdown. They closed down because those lands, for those few days, belonged to someone else (China)) because we were defaulting on our loans and collateral had to be presented in Deed (But not Title.. that’s different)

    Your Birth Certificate is your Deed. That’s Maritime law. In the US people no longer get Deeds - or at least, Deeds are worthless in every court. Title is used in American real estate because a Title is a land-based regency declaration. Deeds are necessary to insure in the Maritime. So if you want to get Lloyds to insure you, you had better have a deed.

    This is also why Shipping came to a halt for 4 days this year. Those ships had to stay in international waters because title and Deed needed to balance or else war was going to break out. International banks needed those items to stay in their waters until the currency used to transfer them from their holdings to onshore holdings was proven to be valid. The Fed probably won’t engage a negative interest rate in that same way again. Oh yeah. The Fed is why we aren’t in WWIII right now. Something that people in the Treasury (Ahem Ron Paul cough cough) simply won’t tell you.

    But yeah, look at the history of American Express and you’ll see why it’s not accepted everywhere, and it’s acceptance is not allowed by law. Lots of countries are pissed about that, and not every country plays in that sandbox. You’ll see acceptance throughout Europe but wait until you see what happens in the UK, as what happened throughout the middle east and other Sharia-controlled economies. And Communist economies. Because communist and sharia compliant banking is Credit on steroids.

    Celerity to ProgressingAmerica

    As usual, a common form of slave trade is to get slaves to willingly and happily walk onto slave ships.

    This is done through Credit, and makes the names of MasterCard, American Express and VISA make a little more sense. Actual wealth is converted to Credit which means nothing. Then attempts to convert credit back to cash are dashed because no one in America wants Credit (Which is marketed as being usable only on the open seas.)

    This is maritime law, and it has enslaved more people than you may think. Ever wonder why your money “is no good!” on a cruise ? Because when you’re out at sea, they are trading on the Maritime markets and your cruise-bux aren’t actually anything. This is why you convert before heading out into the blue yonder.

    Your real money goes through processes at sea.

    Maritime law allows for the human slave trade in all formats and affects. It allows for the private sale of all things. Your birthcertificate is a left-over of maritime laws that have actually allowed the US to trade Credit with China for many, many years.

    On open seas, there is a trade market that many are not aware of. It is unregulated and it’s pretty dark.

    Credibility: I have served as a data analyst for high-finance markets and hedges. I have also performed calculations and created formulas at the major credit companies and the Credit Bureau. Caveat Emptor.

    “The gun haters do not want it, because it does not lead to gun registration and gun confiscation.”

    BINGO

    Also, crossbows are horribly dangerous to the user. A rifle is far safer.

    One slip up on these things, and there are many places to slip up, can cost you a hand or finger instantly. And in order to decock it you have to shoot an actual bolt into a soft target. The ground destroys the bolt. It’s a really inconvenient weapon.

    Carrying it in the woods is terrible, they are delicate and just like high powered bows the bolts / arrows have to be perfect. Tiny fractures that the eye can’t detect will blow up literally in your face.

    Bows are pretty dangerous too but not as bad as these. A rifle is the safest, easiest to handle hunting weapon out there. I dispel so many myths with my crossbow. (Which is for sale now, BTW)

    Queen Mu-Mu doesn’t need to make _specific_ campaign promises. She needs a large percentage of people to cheer her.

    You see, elections don’t matter with her. The election-cheat machine is perfected. All she needs is some kind of illusion to achieve a 49/51 split so that we don’t riot when the election goes to her.

    The actual numbers are more like 15-20% Hillary voters. And if we went on that and the usual democrat campaign promises (We’ll somehow make things better for blacks) then when she steals the election we’ll all be VERY suspect. So instead she promises everything to everyone. You want your guns ? She’s all for the 2nd amendment. You want your dollar to go further ? She does too! IT’s all garbage.

    The truth is that she needs enough “ra ra” to pull off the illusion that 51% of the country voted for her.

    I really, really wish we could somehow demonstrate the Trump vote before it happened. Imagine a petition of over 2 billion signatures ? That will dispel her efforts to rig the election pretty badly.

    This will end up in gunfire.

    8 years is a good time to do it, I think. But my 2 year old will spell out words on a keyboard. Won’t touch a crayon, pen or pencil.

    It’s strange, but I’m working with it. The fact that my 2 year old (2 tomorrow, actually) is spelling words is a testament to _something_.

    Only one person has any experience, willingness, or even desire to give us work.

    The way that tablets are used in SciFi movies is great. The expectation / reality is starkly opposite.

    And that’s what happens whenever you give the masses an amazing technology. They abuse it and have sex with it.

    I’m getting my daughter on a balanced digital environment. I’ve given her an e-reader to start with (removed online functionality, and she uses it for books).

    But we only use it together. When we’re done, I take it with me. We don’t set time limits on things, we set tasks on them. Before bed we still read and she has access to her books all day long.

    I’m getting ready to incorporate a 21” tablet PC into her life. It’s a windows 10 computer with a kid-friendly interface already built in. But it’s content will be similar. e-books, a notepad, some photos and video capability.

    This is what the sci-fi movies have shown me. They have shown me a world where people refer to the computer screen, but then put them down. 5 minutes is usually spent with them.

    A computer is not a communication device. It CAN be, but even the video calling and stuff that relatives do diminishes their time together when we travel the several states to see people. It’s having a negative impact.

    So the next approach is to build a solid face-to-face relationship with everyone, THEN supplement it with video calling. But she’s two years old, so there is plenty of time.

    At 2 years old it seems that the parents are more excited to put tech in front of them than the kids are to adopt it themselves.

    “psychotic junkies”.... Wow.

    Those are powerful words.

    The virtual games are a great extension of the physical games we all loved. As far as Minecraft being “Digital Legos” Lego already brilliantly handled that with their interactive legos. So kids could physically build stuff and then integrate it with programs and functions from the computer. Those functions never came in a “finished form” so the kids had to apply some basic programming to make it happen.

    Brilliant. And what happened ? No one bought it. Too tough. Too much work. And this is what you get.

    But all of those games.. like Arma. Arma has a mod for it called “Arma city” or something like that. It’s a digital version of cops and robbers. It’s a lot of fun, and it’s addictive. But the problem is not that parents are letting their kids play the virtual games - it’s that their parents aren’t letting them play THE REAL game. Could you imagine a bunch of kids today running around with bandanas and cap guns playing cops and robbers ? The parents would be put in jail !

    All of our problems come down to ONE SINGLE THING. Democrats.

    This election isn’t fair ALREADY.

    They are calling this even split for Hillary Mu-Mu, when her rallies draw people in the tens, and Trump is drawing people in the thousands.

    And we can’t say “That’s how dems are” because Bernie was making a big splash too. So we KNOW that Hillary is going to steal the election but she’s stealing it right now. Like. Right now.

    She’s going to be declared the winner. It’s going to happen. Lets stop saying that they are going to “let Trump be president”. We must be preparing right now a trip to DC. Armed and angry. We must be preparing soldiers and law enforcement to stand down and let us take this.

    We’re at that point. I don’t even feel like a nutjob saying it. We will have to take it back.

    Well, I say that.. But the truth is that Brexit happened and Duterte got elected. So lets just see. If constables and poll places are occupied by our people then I can see an honest count being done.

    Because I seriously, seriously think that anyone working these polls will see only a few Clinton votes go through. I don’t even have to ask people to rig an election. The raw numbers are there. The Democrat party is split. Mathematically, the chances of her honestly winning this election is very, very narrow.
