George Soros Is Preparing For Economic Collapse – Does He Know Something That You Don’t? - Michael Snyder THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG

George Soros - Photo by Niccolo Caranti

Posted: 09 Jun 2016   Michael Snyder  THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG

Why is George Soros selling stocks, buying gold and making “a series of big, bearish investments”?  If things stay relatively stable like they are right now, these moves will likely cost George Soros a tremendous amount of money.  But if a major financial crisis is imminent, he stands to make obscene returns.  So does George Soros know something that the rest of us do not?  Could it be possible that he has spent too much time reading websites such as The Economic Collapse Blog?  What are we to make of all of this?

The recent trading moves that Soros has made are so big and so bearish that they have even gotten the attention of the Wall Street Journal
Worried about the outlook for the global economy and concerned that large market shifts may be at hand, the billionaire hedge-fund founder and philanthropist recently directed a series of big, bearish investments, according to people close to the matter.
Soros Fund Management LLC, which manages $30 billion for Mr. Soros and his family, sold stocks and bought gold and shares of gold miners, anticipating weakness in various markets. Investors often view gold as a haven during times of turmoil.
Hmmm – it sounds suspiciously like George Soros and Michael Snyder are on the exact same page as far as what is about to happen to the global economy.

You know that it is very late in the game when that starts happening…

One thing that George Soros is particularly concerned about that I haven’t been talking a lot about yet is the upcoming Brexit vote.  If the United Kingdom leaves the EU (and hopefully they will), the short-term consequences for the European economy could potentially be absolutely catastrophic
Mr. Soros also argues that there remains a good chance the European Union will collapse under the weight of the migration crisis, continuing challenges in Greece and a potential exit by the United Kingdom from the EU.
If Britain leaves, it could unleash a general exodus, and the disintegration of the European Union will become practically unavoidable,” he said.
The Brexit vote will be held two weeks from today on June 23rd, and we shall be watching to see what happens.

But Soros is not just concerned about a potential Brexit.  The economic slowdown in China also has him very worried, and so he has directed his firm to make extremely bearish wagers.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the last time Soros made these kinds of bearish moves was back in 2007, and it resulted in more than a billion dollars of gains for his company.
Of course Soros is not alone in his bearish outlook.  In fact, Goldman Sachs has just warned that “there may be significant risk to the downside for the market”
Goldman Sachs is getting nervous about stocks.
In a note to clients, equity strategist Christian Mueller-Glissmann outlined the firm’s fears that there may be significant risk to the downside for the market.
Ultimately, George Soros and Goldman Sachs are looking at the same economic data that I share with my readers on a daily basis.

As I have been documenting for months, almost every single economic indicator that you can possibly think of says that we are heading into a recession.

For instance, just today I was sent a piece by Mike Shedlock that showed that federal and state tax receipts are really slowing down just like they did just prior to the last two recessions…
US federal personal tax receipts receipts are falling fast. So is the Evercore ISI State Tax Survey.
The last two times the survey plunged this much, the US was already in recession.
Is it different this time?
Tax Receipts - Mish Shedlock
And online job postings on LinkedIn have now been falling precipitously since February after 73 months in a row of growth
After 73 consecutive months of year-over-year growth, online jobs postings have been in decline since February. May was by far the worst month since January 2009, down 285k from April and down 552k from a year ago.
Last week, the government issued the worst jobs report in nearly six years, and the energy industry continues to bleed good paying middle class jobs at a staggering rate.  The following comes from oilprice.com
That may seem counterintuitive in an industry that has been rapidly shedding workers, with more than 350,000 people laid off in the oil and gas industry worldwide.
Texas is one place feeling the pain. Around 99,000 direct and indirect jobs in the Lone Star state have been eliminated since prices collapsed two years ago, or about one third of the entire industry. In April alone there were about 6,300 people in oil and gas and supporting services that were handed pink slips. Employment in Texas’ oil sector is close to levels not seen since the aftermath of the financial crisis in 2009. “We’re still losing big chunks of jobs with each passing month,” Karr Ingham, an Amarillo-based economist, told The Houston Chronicle.
At this point it is so obvious that we have entered a new economic downturn that I don’t know how anyone can possibly deny it any longer.

Unfortunately, the reality of what is happening has not sunk in with the general population yet.

Just like 2008, people are feverishly racking up huge credit card balances even though we stand on the precipice of a major financial crisis…
American taxpayers are quick to criticize the federal government for its ever-increasing national debt, but a new study released Wednesday found taxpayers are also saddled with debt, and are likely to end 2016 with a record high $1 trillion in outstanding balances.
Wallethub, a site that recommends credit cards based on consumers’ needs, said that will be the highest amount of credit card debt on record, surpassing even the years during and before the Great Recession. The site said the record high was in 2008, when people owed $984.2 billion on their credit cards.
Will we ever learn?

This has got to be one of the worst possible times to be going into credit card debt.
Sadly, the “dumb money” will continue to act dumb and the “smart money” (such as George Soros) will continue to quietly position themselves to take advantage of the crisis that is already starting to unfold.

We can’t change what is happening to the economy, but we do have control over the choices that we make.

So I urge you to please make your choices wisely.

Why Investing In Silver Is Vastly Superior To Investing In Gold Right Now - Michael Snyder THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG

Silver Coins - Public Domain

Posted: 20 Mar 2016  Michael Snyder  THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG

When panic and fear dominate financial markets, gold and silver both tend to rapidly rise in price.  We witnessed this during the last financial crisis, and it is starting to happen again.  Because I am the publisher of a website called The Economic Collapse Blog, I am often asked about gold and silver when I do interviews.  In fact, just a few days ago I was sitting right next to Jim Rickards during the taping of a television show when this topic came up.  Jim expressed his belief that investing in gold is superior to investing in silver, but I had the exact opposite viewpoint.  In this article, I would like to elaborate on why I believe that silver represents a historic investment opportunity right now.

I should start out by disclosing that my wife and I have been able to put away a little bit of silver over the years.  I wish that it could have been a lot more, but so often there are other priorities that need to be addressed.  For example, I have always said that people need to take care of their emergency food storage first before even thinking about any kind of investments.

But if you have money left over after taking care of the basics, I am fully convinced that silver is a wonderful investment for the mid to long term.  In this article, I am going to explain why this is the case.  However, I have always warned that you have got to be ready for a rollercoaster ride if you get into precious metals.  So if you can’t handle the ups and downs, you should probably avoid them altogether.

As I write this article, the price of gold is sitting at $1254.30 an ounce.

Meanwhile, the price of silver is sitting at just $15.81 an ounce.

That means that the price of gold is currently more than 79 times higher than the price of silver.  For the ratio between gold and silver to be this high is truly unusual.

You see, the truth is that there is only about 17 times as much silver as there is gold in the Earth’s crust.  And currently silver is being mined at about an 11 to 1 ratio to gold.

So it makes sense that throughout history gold has typically sold at about a 15 to 1 ratio to silver.

During the years to come, I do believe that gold will multiply in price.

But I am also convinced that the price of silver will go up much, much faster.

As they both skyrocket in price, the price ratio between gold and silver will shift very quickly from 79 to 1 in the direction of 15 to 1.

Perhaps we may never even get all the way back to 15 to 1, but if we even got to 40 to 1 or 30 to 1, what that would mean for silver would be history making.

Let us also keep in mind that unlike gold, silver is constantly being used up in thousands of different industrial applications.  The following comes from Jeff Nielson
Over the past quarter century, more silver-based patents have been created than with any other metal on the planet. But not only does silver have unparalleled versatility, it is an extremely potent metal, meaning that in many of its commercial applications it is used in only trace amounts.
Why is this of significance? Because in such tiny quantities it is economically impractical to ever recycle any of this silver, at prices anywhere near the (absurd) levels of recent decades. Thus this silver is being consumed in tiny amounts, but in billions and billions of consumer products, over a span of decades.
Unlike gold, our stockpiles of silver are disappearing. As previously mentioned, for at least the last thirty years, the only way that our strong demand for silver could be satisfied has been through consuming portions of these stockpiles.
It has been estimated that approximately one billion ounces of silver have been used in consumer products over the past ten years alone.

Even if the world could somehow avoid the great financial turmoil that has already begun, the truth is that eventually a great demand crunch for silver would come just based on how much of it we are steadily consuming.

At less than 16 dollars an ounce right now, silver is ridiculously undervalued.

Those that are wise see this, and they are stocking up on silver coins at an unprecedented level.  Just check out these numbers
Silver Eagle sales will likely jump by 25% in the first quarter due to deteriorating market conditions. During the first three months last year the U.S. Mint sold 12 million Silver Eagles. Already, sales of Silver Eagles have reached 13 million. There are two weeks remaining in March and the U.S. Mint will likely sell another two million. This will put total Silver Eagle sales for the first quarter at 15 million….. the highest ever.
I have always said that I believe that the price of silver will eventually go over $100 an ounce.

When that happens, those that got in today will be exceedingly happy with their returns.
Others are projecting even greater gains.  For instance, investing legend Egon von Greyerz believes that the price of silver could ultimately go as high as $660 an ounce, and Jeff Nielson believes that $1,000 an ounce for silver would be a fair price.

But once again, don’t even think about getting into precious metals until you have the basics squared away.  It is often said that you can’t eat gold or silver, and that is very true.

In our new television show, my wife and I are always going to tell it to you straight.  A lot of people out there are relaxing right now because they think that the recent stock market rally means that the crisis is over.  What they don’t understand is that this new financial crisis is just in the very early chapters.  There are going to be more ups and more downs, and the shaking that we have seen so far is just the beginning.

Many of you may not want to believe me at this moment, but by the end of 2016 life in America is going to look dramatically different than it does right now.  So please get prepared while you are still able to do so.

17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
18 Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.

Prophecy: God Is About to Release Mantles and Impartations of Wisdom - LANA VAWSER CHARISMA NEWS

Many of you are being refined as pure gold.

Prophecy: God Is About to Release Mantles and Impartations of Wisdom


I had an encounter with the Lord recently during which He showed me a representation of many of His people standing before the Lord. Jesus was standing before them in a white robe and gold sandals. I saw such purity over the ones that were standing before Him. 
I saw Jesus was holding a crown and it was gold and on fire at the same time. I saw Jesus place it on heads. He then spoke:
"There are great mantles, impartations and significant increases of wisdom being released over you as you have been tried by and through fire and you have been proven faithful and are coming out as gold."
The crown represented not only identity in Him, but also the mantle/increase/impartations of heavenly wisdom being released over lives, but also it was on fire, because there has been a "trying by fire" and now you are carrying the fire of God for revival.
Purity and impartations/mantles/increases of wisdom that are being released now are about to marry in a whole new way. There is going to be a pure form of divine heavenly wisdom into the personal lives and households of many of God's people, and it will flow through these ones on a whole new level. 
As the wisdom of God is shared, "suddenlys" will be birthed. There is such a weighty wisdom that is being released across the body of Christ to those who have been positioned, have walked through the fire faithfully and have been asking for His wisdom.
He is pouring out significant increases of this wisdom on many who have "paid the price for wisdom," as many have walked through the fire of trial, the trial of opposition and the fire of pruning and purging. Yet you have kept your face and heart set toward Him as a flint. The purity of heart that has been maintained through the fire is now becoming a platform for the increase of this wisdom.
Many who are receiving the mantle of heavenly wisdom coupled with His fire, not only will you be positioned before many to release significant insight that will bring long-awaited breakthroughs and the breaker anointing released, but I saw a positioning before kings and those of great influence. There is going to be a prophetic sign of the increase of wisdom spreading through the body of Christ as many will begin to see those of influence calling on the people of God for wisdom, insight and strategy.
The days of Joseph and Esther are upon us. Those who have been prepared in the fire and now being catapulted into areas of significant influence for the kingdom of God to release heavenly wisdom. 
Stay positioned for the wisdom of God to be released in significant ways over your life as you have been seeking Him for it. As it flows to you and through you, He is going to amaze you with His insight and strategy that bypass the natural. The awe of God is going to be restored in significant ways across the body of Christ as a new level of wisdom will be released, received and implemented. 
Trust Him as He releases His wisdom to you. For I saw the Spirit of God speaking and releasing His wisdom which was completely opposite to natural, expected ways. Many are going to find His wisdom in the most unexpected ways and leadings of His Spirit, but will lead His people and those they share with to depths of knowing Him and seeing Him move that they have not experienced before.
Don't fight the leadings. Trust Him completely and go with His flow. It may not make sense as you "step forward." But in taking the steps forward in faith, following His wisdom is going to help you take more steps forward and break more ground than you would have if you followed your natural logic. 
I saw many transitioning from the "vein of natural thinking" into the "vein of heavenly wisdom" in alignment with His Word that was flowing from His heart, leading them and those around them to greater life. Many of you may feel as though you are being led into things in a backward way. But by His Spirit, you are moving further forward than ever. 
Significant divine ideas, strategies and blueprints carrying the weighty wisdom of God when put into action are going to see some of the most groundbreaking demonstrations of His power and glory released in these days of accelerated breakthrough.

Get a Menorah in Time for Chanukah! ✡ "Seven Lamps Are Upon It" - ISRAEL365,

I see and behold - there is a menorah of gold with its bowl on its top; its seven lamps are upon it, and there are seven ducts for the lamps on its top.

ZECHARIAH (4:2)
 

רָאִיתִי וְהִנֵּה מְנוֹרַת זָהָב כֻּלָּהּ וְגֻלָּהּ עַל רֹאשָׁהּ וְשִׁבְעָה נֵרֹתֶיהָ עָלֶיהָ-שִׁבְעָה וְשִׁבְעָה מוּצָקוֹת לַנֵּרוֹת אֲשֶׁר עַל רֹאשָׁהּ

זְכַרְיָה ד:ב

ra-ee-tee v'-hi-nay m'-no-rat za-hav ku-la v'-gu-la al ro-sha v'-shiv-a nay-ro-te-ha a-le-ha - shiv-a v'-shiv-a mu-tza-kot la-nay-rot a-sher al ro-sha

Today's Israel Inspiration

Our Sages in the Talmud refer to Jerusalem as "the light of the world." The symbol of this holy spiritual light was the Menorah (Temple lamp) which emanated light through the unusual windows of the Sanctuary. The windows were made narrower on the inside - bringing less sunlight into the Sanctuary, but maximizing the spiritual light that burst forth to the world. Enlighten yourself this season with a beautiful Menorah from the Land of Israel.
 

This Israeli Arab Woman Deserves a Standing Ovation!

We're spellbound by this speech before the Israeli Knesset by Sara Zoabi, a proud Muslim ISRAELI who urges her fellow Israeli Arabs to wake up and realize that Israel is a paradise with equal rights, freedom of speech and worship.
 

Christians Stand Up for Rachel's Tomb as a Jewish, not Muslim, Holy Site

Last week, UNESCO approved a Palestinian resolution to change the status of Rachel’s Tomb and the Cave of the Patriarchs from Jewish to Muslim sites. A Christian group is fighting this "disinformation that attempts to destroy the Israelite connection to these holy sites."

Bronze Dreidel

This beautiful bronze dreidel is decorated with colorful jewels and engraved with a skyline of Jerusalem. It is decorated on all four sides with the four Hebrew letters corresponding to the phrase “a great miracle happened here.”

Today's Israel Photo

Today's photo shows the golden Menorah which sits at the top of the steps leading down to the Western Wall. Incredibly, this Menorah is biblically-accurate, made of pure gold according to all the specifications of the Torah, ready and waiting to be used in the future Temple!
 

Yesterday's Photo Trivia

You got it! Yesterday's photo showed an Israeli soldier who just finished his beret march at the top of Masada. In Hebrew, "Masada" means "fortress." This is one of Israel's most popular tourist destinations!

"A Vision of the Golden Shovel" - Tiffany Ann Lewis


"A Vision of the Golden Shovel"
Tiffany Ann Lewis, Rexford, NY
The Elijah List

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service." Romans 12:1
Here's my heart Lord
Here's my heart Lord
Here's my heart Lord
Take all of me...
I had a glorious vision of the ancient Temple in Jerusalem during a time of prayer while these words were being sung. In the vision, I was standing at the entrance of the temple facing the brazen altar and the whole court of God was before me and it was alive with worship.

The images changed quickly from scene to scene and suddenly the smoke that had been rising steadily from the altar of sacrifice, died down and the people went home. It was then, in the stillness of the courtyard, that I saw Jesus, our High Priest, come out from the Holy Place with a golden shovel in His hand. He went quickly and purposefully to the brazen alter and scooped up the ashes and carried them inside the Holy Place. (Photo via Wikipedia)

The vision ended as quickly as it started but something about the intensity that the Lord had while He was scooping the ashes continued to grip my heart. There was a protectiveness and tenderness to His actions. I sensed Jesus cherished those precious ashes. You see, He knows firsthand that the Altar of Sacrifice is not always a pleasant place to be therefore, He is tender and sympathetic to the pain of the process. And it is a process, however, in Jesus, nothing is lost.

Even the searing pain has a purpose. Even the ashes have a purpose. Jesus was bringing the ashes into the Holy Place to make something beautiful from the hearts offered up to Him in faith on the altar of sacrifice. Selah...

ElijahList Prophetic Resources

Jesus Picked Up Our Ashes...

"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me... to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:1a;3

Now, I know what you're thinking... it wasn't a golden shovel that the priest used to bring the coals into the holy place... it was a brass shovel. This is true however, I think there was a reason that the Lord showed me a golden shovel in the vision verses the bronze one in Scripture. Let me explain.

In Scripture bronze symbolizes strength, judgement, and captivity. Gold on the other hand represent rarity, purity and God's deity. Using a gold verses bronze shovel reveals, I believe, how precious the lives that we offer up to Him are. They may not be lives that are perfect or free from failure, but a broken, humble heart the Lord will never despise.

You are probably familiar with this Psalm written by King David, the man after God's heart, after his horrific sin of killing Uriah to cover committing adultery with his wife, and which was revealed (see 2 Samuel 11). What David had done was displeasing to the Lord but his sincere repentance wasn't. I believe his repentance was precious to the Lord and the very reason, in the vision, I saw the Lord Jesus come with a golden shovel, not a shovel of strong bronze judgement. (Photo via Wikipedia)

Many Believers today are stuck in their shame, feeling like the Lord despises them because of their sin. Instead of being set free with the truth of Romans 5:8 that "...God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us," they are stuck in "the shame of being a sinner" that Christ needed to die for.

Here is the core of the vision: there was no distain or judgement on the Lord's face as He scooped up the ashes. There was a look of joy and pleasure as He scooped up the precious ashes that come from our lives laid upon the altar of sacrifice in sweet surrender to Him.

Beloved, surrounded by all that ashes of our lives there is a burning ember that He will bring into the Holy Place and use to bring a sweet, smelling aroma to God from the altar of incense. Amen and Amen.
