Enter the Gray Rhino

For the past two weeks, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) has been referring to a term that few have heard before. It’s a ‘Gray Rhino’. (or Grey Rhino, for you Brits) That term refers to risks that everyone sees, but doing nothing to resolve.

Unfortunately, that’s the age that we are living in. There are ‘Gray Rhinos’ trampling the world. They are everywhere, and it’s appalling that we are doing precisely nothing to stop their destruction of our civilization. These risks are obvious, but we are too corrupt to do anything about them.

It’s an utterly maddening phenomenon.

The End of a Nation

We are so broken that, as I sit here, I’m not sure where to begin. We have Nazis murdering Jews, in the worst antisemitic atrocity in the history of America. Our children are fleeing Christ in record numbers. We face the prospect of having to vote for someone evil in the elections, because someone MORE evil is the alternative. And then, the one person who sees the future the most clearly said that this month marks the beginning of something major – and not in a good way.

When Martin Armstrong says ‘Buckle Up!’, it might be time to head for the hills.

Filled with Foreboding

It should be no mystery to you that we are in a lot of trouble. Earth-shaking, civilization destroying, trouble. And, the news this week – and over the past few weeks – has emphasized this like we have rarely seen. Conventional oil production has been declining since 2005. Emerging market countries are experiencing financial collapse. We are entering a Grand Solar Minimum that might be worse than the one that launched the Dark Ages. The war against free speech has begun in earnest. Societies in the developed world teeter on the brink of open strife.

We are staring into the Abyss, and I just don’t like the view.

The Road Ahead – 2018

I am so bad at prognostication, that I won’t really try to tell you what WILL happen. The best that I can do is describe the threats. These threats have been looming larger and larger with each passing year. And, some of them are new.

Please treat these seriously.

My hope is that we will have another year where we successfully dodge the bullets being fired at us. But, there is a limit to how often we can do that.

Will we run out of ‘luck’ in 2018?

2017 Hits

Of all the years that I’ve been writing articles, I believe that 2017 is the most important. And, I’ve been writing since the mid ’90s. Only time will tell, whether I’m right (and write). And, 2018 might be even MORE momentous.

However, we’ll deal with 2018 later. Right now, we need to look back at this past year and examine what was important. But, I want to do that a bit differently than I normally do, at this time of year.

I want to look at the articles that YOU thought were important, and a few that I thought to be important.

The System is Dying

The current, high tech civilization started dying a little over ten years ago. What began in the 1800s, races towards an inglorious end and the death of billions of people. And, you know nothing about this, because our dear leaders do not want you to know.

In fact, these same ‘dear leaders’ undoubtedly tell themselves that our fantastic empire will continue, that nothing can shake this great ship as it travels into the night. But, not all is as it seems, and that jolt you felt in 2008 was the same kind of iceberg that sank the unsinkable Titanic.

As our system dies, will you be ready for this?

Get Wisdom or Die

One of my many faults is my lack of patience with fools and foolishness. There just isn’t enough time to fix a fool, and I don’t have the energy for it. The only thing that I can do is point out the fools, so that the wise don’t get tarnished by their message. And yes, fools have a message, and they want you to buy it.

The only defense against a fool is wisdom. Some think that knowledge is the key, but it’s not. Knowledge is just an input to wisdom.

And, without wisdom, you have no hope for survival as our system dies.

Houston Tipping Point?

The big news, this past week, has been Hurricane Harvey and the disaster inflicted upon Houston. The question in my mind – aside from my concern about the immediate suffering – is, what will happen to the economy and then the rest of the world? This is a very big deal, and we will only find out the answer to this question over the next weeks and months.

Pray for all who suffer, that the damage will be fixed with all due speed and that the people can get back to work. Otherwise, we’re all in a lot of trouble.

Next Week Will Hurt

This week was bad, but next week… well, I’m betting that it will be a doozy. And, it has everything to do with finance.

Yes, I know that finance doesn’t really DO anything, but it provides the people who do things with the ability to do things – if you understand what I’m saying.

To put it another way, no one will drive a truck, if they don’t believe that they’ll be paid for the time spent, driving that truck. And, without trucks being driven… there will be trouble.

And, this isn’t just about trucks. It’s about everything.

Deep State Civil War

Events in the US appear to be proceeding down a path that history has recorded for centuries. In fact, students of history have been warning of this for a while. Even worse, students of the Bible have seen echoes of this from within Bible prophecy.

We really are in the Last Days, so what is happening in the last remaining superpower should not surprise us. Although, you will forgive me for a little outrage and some shock.

It’s hard to believe that the Deep State would attempt to ever-so-closely follow the tragedies of history. But, they have, so the results will be predictable.
