A2A with Andy Hoffman of Miles Franklin

114

All of the current global and market turbulence meant that it was an excellent time to check in again with the great Andy Hoffman of Miles Franklin. And Andy doesn't disappoint with 45 minutes of true, must listen audio.

First of all, I want to warn everyone that this is going to be one of those threads where we freely and openly discuss Bitcoin in the comments section. One of the reason I wanted to have Andy in for A2A is that he is an advocate for both BTC and gold...and he sees them as complimentary tools to end the reign of The Bankers and NOT as competition for each other.

So, in addition to a discussion of the value of cryptocurrencies in the fight against The Banks, Andy also addresses:

  • The recent PM flash crashes and how The Bankers are now brazenly rigging prices
  • How the market narrative (GAN2017) instantly changed the moment Trump was elected
  • His distrust of Trump, despite having voted for him
  • How declining silver miner production as a result of price manipulation is working against The Bankers
  • How and why the G-3 total market management system will eventually fail

Again, Andy has been a stalwart friend and ally in the fight against The Cartel for as long as I have known him. It was great to visit with him again and I'm confident you will gain a lot of perspective by listening to this podcast.

Alibaba is showing how entrepreneur the Chinese have become responding to a crisis in demand. You can now buy specially made refugee boat if you want to make it to tax-free living in Europe. Better hurry up while supplies last. No passport needed. Just say you are Muslim and from Syria but because of the war you have no papers. For just $800, you, your family or home-boys, can reach the land of handouts and you better hurry up before they go broke and run out of money.

Are You Tired of Banks,

Are You Tired of Banks, Credit Cards, and Debt? Consider a System of Trading Time Instead of Money

Hour by hour, time banking is creating healthier communities.

We live in a capitalistic society. Banks are everywhere, and it often seems like cash and credit are required to live. The gap between the haves and the have-nots is growing. And it can sometimes seem like economic inequality is ubiquitous.

But around the world, people are using a system of exchange that requires something everyone is, for the most part, given equally, every day: Time.

How do you trade or exchange time? Through a time bank. At its most basic, you spend an hour doing something for someone in your time banking community, and you then receive a time banking credit of one hour to spend on something you need. For example, if you spend an hour raking your neighbor’s yard, you then have an hour to spend, for example, on childcare or car repair. It’s an hour for an hour. The idea is simple, and it’s growing.

Take, for instance, Rushey Green Time Bank, based in South East London. It’s a connected group of 535 people, with offshoot projects that include the Wild Cat Wilderness community garden of another 400-plus people, and the FoodCycle Lewisham project with another 100.

The Rushey Green Time Bank was very small when it started almost 20 years ago, explains its director, Philippe Granger, when a doctor wanted to offer something else to his patients beyond prescription drugs—especially for those suffering from isolation, bereavement and loss of work. “Normally, a doctor prescribes pills,” in those cases, says Granger. “But what he thought would be better would be to integrate the patients into the community.”

Rushey Green Time Bank started in a health center, in a part of London with more buildings than green space. It’s an area of high unemployment, single parents and pensioners.

“What we’ve experienced in the past six to seven years is a rise in mental health issues. I think everywhere on the planet, mental health is coming up because life is becoming very stressful,” says Granger, explaining that people in their mid-30s through 40s often have depression, but that’s used as an “umbrella word.”

“We’re not healers. We’re not doctors. We don’t promise if your body is broken we can fix it. But we can help manage your condition. You have a community around you and you have support. If you have a broken leg, and you’re alone, that’s tough. But if you’re in a group, you have support. In that way, it slows down the ill effects.”

“I love to see people in the gutter being made well,” he adds.

In the case of a broken leg, that time banking community can help with things like errands, walking your dog, or cleaning the house. You, in turn, might make phone calls for a local organization, or teach someone how to read.

New FDA-approved Hepatitis B

New FDA-approved Hepatitis B vaccine found to increase heart attack risk by 700%

This new analysis comes from Dr. Jack Wolfson, a well-informed cardiologist practicing in Arizona who dares to speak out on the truth about vaccine risks. Here’s his report:

Hepatitis B vaccine linked to 700% increase in heart attacks

The FDA has approved a new vaccine for Hepatitis B. This is good news for the pharmaceutical company that makes the vaccine, but bad news for consumers.

You see, in the latest trial to examine effectiveness of the drug, heart attack risk was higher in the vaccine group. How much higher? Try 700% higher (1).

Vaccination and heart attack risk may not come as a surprise to you. The stated purpose of a vaccine is to invoke an immune response. The immune response is linked to inflammation, oxidative stress, and immune cell activation. All three are linked to heart attack risk.

Sadly, there a very few studies on vaccination and heart attack risk. Ironically, some studies demonstrate a beneficial effect of the influenza vaccine on heart attack risk. But researchers have identified flaws in study design and question the findings of flu vaccine benefits on heart attack risk (2). Other studies showed no difference between the vaccinated and the control group regarding the pneumonia vaccine(3).

Again, most of the vaccine schedule has not been studied for heart attack or stroke risk. In other words, we do not know if the DPT, MMR, shingles, polio, HPV or chicken pox vaccines increase heart attacks.

What is Hep B?

Hepatitis B is a viral infection contracted from blood to blood contact. This makes IV drug abusers and people who have sex with multiple partners most vulnerable. HBV is not spread through food or water, sharing eating utensils, breastfeeding, hugging, kissing, hand holding, coughing, or sneezing.

95% of people infected with the Hepatitis B virus do NOT become chronic carriers of the virus. They do not suffer from long-term liver complications, according to the CDC (4). A small percentage develop cirrhosis and/or liver cancer.

Philippines National Democratic Front Says CIA Working to Overthrow Duterte

[8/8/17/ SPUTNIK] The Philippines National Democratic Front has alleged the US Central Intelligence Agency and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) have been plotting to kill exiled Communist Party founder Jose Maria Sison, and overthrow President Rodrigo Duterte. If true, it won’t be the first time the US has sought to meddle in the country’s affairs.

The NDF claim military officers, who are assets of the CIA and close to AFP chief General Eduardo Ano, were engaged in a “two-stage” plot. The first step would see the dispatch of a hit team to Sison’s Netherlands home, comprised of elite AFP forces disguised as disaffected dropouts from the New People’s Army, to take out the dissident.

The second would result in the overthrow Duterte, ostensibly for violating human rights in his ongoing “War on Drugs and Criminality” in the country, but in reality for veering towards Russia and China in international affairs.

Armed Forces chiefs have however dismissed the “preposterous” allegations, claiming they are “propaganda” aimed at gaining “sympathy” for Duterte and engendering “anti-US” sentiment in the country.

Whatever the truth of the matter, it’s no secret relations between the Philippines and US have soured significantly under Duterte’s rule.

Not long after the President lly assumed office June 2016, he suggested US special forces cease operations in the country, and leave.

In September, he called for an end to the Philippines’ joint military exercises with the US, and in October signalled he was shifting the country’s foreign policy focus to China and Russia.

The US rarely welcomes such independence in its allies, although in the Philippines such actions are likely considered extremely egregious — the country was from 1989-1946 a colony of the US Empire. The territory fell into US hands after Spain’s defeat in the Spanish-American War — locals, hitherto engaged in a bitter independence struggle with their Spanish rulers, turned their insurrectionary attentions to the US invaders, resulting in the Philippine-American War. The conflict, which ended in a resounding US victory, wrought extensive damage and death on the islands.

While granted independence in the wake of World War II, the country has served ever since as a key staging ground for US military and intelligence actions, both covert and overt, throughout Asia. The CIA has maintained a strong presence in the Philippines almost as long as it has existed — and US military bases continue to dot the landscape.

Moreover, it has served as an effective laboratory for the testing of warfare techniques — military, psychological and otherwise — for use elsewhere. For much of the 1950s, the Philippines government, backed by US forces, battled against the “Huk” rebellion internally — once defeated, many of the tactics that had proved effective were put to use in the Vietnam War, and local rebellions throughout Latin America.

Moreover, while it is often claimed by the US covert overthrows of foreign governments were a Cold War staple, no longer practised by the CIA, recent developments in Venezuela and elsewhere suggest coup d’etat very much remain pivotal in the US’ practical foreign policy arsenal.

In August, ​US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned of “regime change” in Caracas, and in July CIA Director Mike Pompeo acknowledged the US was working to remove Maduro’s government from power.

It’s not merely in Venezuela the US is accused of destabilizing elected governments. Bolivian President Evo Morales has alleged the US government gave at least US$4 million dollars to anti-government separatist groups from 2006-2009, in response to Morales’ land reform and nationalization programs.

Crash Alert: We’re Days Away

Crash Alert: We’re Days Away From a Trigger Signal

And the VIX will be exploding higher. Historically, the average level for the VIX since 1993 has been around 18-20. We’ve been stock at 9-10 for weeks now.

Not anymore. Today’s move could very well be the start of something big. The below chart predicts a move to 30 if not 40 in the coming weeks. If this was a chart for an individual stock, you’d say it was a screaming buy.

So what happens when the VIX spikes to 30-40 and the 0 billion worth of capital managed by Risk Parity Funds starts dumping stocks?

Buckle up, we’re about to fund out.

You’ve been warned.
