A Visit with Charlie Johnston


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.

Regarding the audio quality...

It's not the best but sometimes, with Skype, you just simply do the best with what you have. I cleaned it up the best I could but my apologies if you have to turn it up a little bit to hear Charlie clearly.

Besides, you have to buy the physical metal with something don't you? ?

Father Paul Kramer

gave a gripping interview yesterday on Caravan to Midnight.

He calls out the current Pope, effectively the anti-Christ. Well supported by comparing the Pope's words vs Scripture. It is a hard pill to swallow, the facts are undeniable. I had never heard of him, but there are many interviews:

Fr Paul Kramer on the Freemasonic Infiltration of the Church (2013)

​seeing the hippy dippy, liberal social positions the Pope has taken begs some serious questioning.

I see questioning the leadership of Catholics no different than questioning the leadership of the USA. You can love Catholicism and hate the leadership. They lost me when they refused to prosecute the pedophiles. If you can't appreciate and protect children, you are without hope.

Silver66 "Oh No!!!" :-)

I hope everyone's pixels do great! AND that they convert them to phyzz at the time that yields the most ounces!

The risk (imo) is obviously that the time to convert might kill the yield. Or worse, the phyzz window closes before one even makes it to the pixel exit.

Again, i hope you hit 'em for maximum ounces, but wow.

Keep me posted on how "staying in the game" works out, and i'll try to remember to occasionally nag you about getting out!! ::'drip':: ::'drip':: ::'drip':: lol

OK fine. Whatever.

I'll leave your comment up realitybiter but this thread IS NOT ABOUT THE POPE and I don't want to the discussion to dissolve into religious bickering.

This is simply about seeking confirmation through different channels that things truly are as messed up and dangerous as we all think they are.
