A Visit with Charlie Johnston

60

Standing on this Watchtower, we all sense that we live in an uncertain and dangerous period. Some of us have found confirmation of this through the study of market cycles and/or the works of Strauss & Howe. Charlie Johnston speaks of these perilous times in more religious terms and it was quite interesting to visit with him earlier today.

Let me just state up front: This is not your usual podcast. If Christianity (and religion in general) isn't your cup of tea, I urge you to reconsider whether or not you want to listen to this recording. The idea behind presenting Charlie to everyone was to demonstrate another avenue of finding confirmation of the perilous times ahead. Therefore, this thread is not designed as a vehicle to argue about religion and faith, The Church and The Pope. You can do that in the forums. Instead, when Charlie mentions his prophetic visions of "The Storm"...the current period in which we live, lasting through the end of 2017...try to consider how this coincides with all of the other secular and agnostic theories of what is coming over the horizon.

Ultimately, the good news is that Charlie doesn't see this as some sort of End Times apocalypse. Instead, it's a type of purification that leads ultimately to a more honest, trustworthy and caring society. And we can't we all agree that that would be something far preferable to today?!?

So, again, I hope you enjoy this different type of podcast. I very much appreciated having the opportunity to visit with Charlie and I hope we can speak again sometime soon.

My takeaway....

There are days I feel so overwhelmed and not sure where to focus my resources...my family's finances, the Christians that are being persecuted across the ocean but not allowed into our country, the horror that is Planned Parenthood, my neighbor...so many needs that I just get paralyzed. I really liked Charlie's comment to just do the next thing good thing in front of you. That really helps calm me down and focus. Thanks TF and Charlie for an interesting interview!

"The Hedge of Protection" for US is the dollar, once it's gone

The Hedge will be lifted. The U.S. Dollar is the hedge of protection mentioned in Cahn's Harbinger book. That is what is about to be removed. When it crashes, happening today, the hedge of protection of America will officially be removed by God. I'm so sorry for everyone there. Stay strong guys. Please pin this so people have at least a few hours left to react.

Turd you almost almost said it! Chinese yuan is the new reserve!

TF you almost said it! We went from pound sterling, to dollar.... To? The Chinese Yuan! It has already been done, I assure you, it's just not official until after War. Don't you think the elites think at least that far in advance? The gold and silver markets prove it. they have spent the last 20 years purely on building the new reserve currency. There must be a replacement for the dollar when it crashes. You almost said it! The yuan is already the worlds reserve currency before World War 3! Great interview!

Many Roads, One Goal

Craig:
That was one fantastic, courageous interview with Charlie. One of the things I appreciate about you, sir, and this site of yours is the openness to all the different paths to truth. Thanks for the shout-out as well!

Turdville:
The reason I originally asked Craig to take a look at Charlie's work was because I was starting to see so many overlaps, similarities and convergences of truth seeking between liberitarian blog sites such as this one and the religious sites such as Charlie's. It became uncanny. And it think Craig and Charlie's conversation just bore that out. That convergence of truth/beauty/good seeking is reminiscent of Aristotle's opening to his Nicomachean Ethics:

Every art and every inquiry, and similarly every action and pursuit, is thought to aim at some good; and for this reason the good has rightly been declared to be that at which all things aim.

This quote reminds me of Turdville in general: a community in the practice and pursuit of the right and the good, by whatever means. We are all trying our darnedest to shake off the deception of the Socratic cave and to get to the good. Sure it's ostensibly a metals investing community, but Katie Rose's magnificent post tonight about her "red neck" community pulling together was beautiful and not at all incongruous with Charlie's comments about taking the next right step and doing the little good you can with what's right in front of you (and you can be sure, Katie Rose, that no matter the creed or approach of it's individuals, the prayers and thoughts of Turdville are most certainly with you) . It is us small men and women of goodwill, doing what little we can together and in trust, that will help us weather the coming Storm.

@ Blankone: Aluminum Garbage Can/Faraday Cage

Walmart sells half and quarter-size aluminum garbage cans. My wife bought one for just such a purpose and we store our backup hard drives and one laptop in there at all times.
