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.

Farm and Fire Update


If any of you believe in prayer, those of us in Eastern WA could sure use some prayers right now.

The air here is a thick brown due to the many fires. The wind has picked up and is swirling in many directions. Three nights ago a deputy sheriff showed up at my Mom's house (where I was milking my goat) and stressed that we needed to evacuate ASAP. I had a near fit as I didn't want my goats to be burned to death. I hosed down the barn as best I could.

Then... a huge horse trailer pulled up and four people got out. They said, "We heard about a lady on XXXX Road with goats who needed someone to rescue them." I was blown away. I didn't know these people at all. I had never seen them, yet somehow though the rumor mill they heard about me.

It was Hell getting the goats into the trailer. They were very uncooperative. They are also big goats and fought every step of the way. My husband landed on his butt. He was not happy.

Then, the women in charge asked, "Do you have a place to house your goats?"

"Only on the deck of my husband's home." I replied.

"I've got goats." she said. "How about they come home with me?"

And that is exactly what happened. I made a new friend. Her husband is a horse trainer and was out rescuing horses. Soon her property was filled with other people's animals. Wow! Just Wow!

Folks were helping folks they don't know. Hundreds of men showed up at the fire lines to help fight the fire. They were all turned away. "No resources." they were told. My county is on fire. As is the neighboring county. There is a fire within a mile of where I am typing.

I have seen the spirit of my neighbors. They are generous and kind, and willing to lay down their lives to protect the lives and property of their neighbors. This experience has given me a renewed hope. I do not believe TPTB are going to fully get their own way. At least in this Red Neck county, the spirit of America is alive and well.

Here is a link to a map of the fires. They are growing.


Here is a link to the county website with fire updates:


We are experiencing a terrible drought. The crops are burning up. Those who have followed my updates know how important alfalfa is to me. I had three tons in reserve. They are being used right now. There simply is no food for the animals out in the pastures. I am feeding 5 lambs and 7 goats alfalfa. Yikes!

I am blessed to have 5 tons of irrigated organic alfalfa on order for this winter. Every year it gets more expensive. I want to get as much as I can before the crash.

I have been sharing on the Alternative Medicine Forum here the miracle that is happening with my husband's cancer. I have learned a lot about that terrible menace.

So, if any of you can find it in your hearts to pray, those of us up here could sure use them. There is nothing fun about being in the midst of a fire storm, and that is what the weathermen are all saying is coming our way due to 35-40 mile per hour gusts this evening and tomorrow-all day tomorrow.

The forests are dry. The pastures are burnt up. I've seen more deer than I have ever seen here. They are out in the alfalfa pastures helping themselves to the farmer's alfalfa. There is no food for them in the forests.....

I wonder how the SNB is going with the current market action?

After all they own a lot of AAPL stock, and didn't they sell off a lot of Gold?

It must be hard being someone else's bitch in the Gangster world of Central Banking.

Not bickering

just sharing information. It is quite clear, that something is afoot, from the top on down. It is not a whatever. The "whatever" attitude is the same attitude that suckers folks into thinking that markets are free because the honest folks at the sec and cftc do their job, or that Congress represents their constituents, or that their religious leaders represent their religion and their flock, on an on - FDA, EPA, IRS, all are shining examples of absolute power corrupting absolutely.....and if folks adopt the "whatever" attitude and fail to do their job and judge deeds, not positions, then we are all doomed.

It all has to be on the table.
