Manage Jenkins Missing The Fed Is About to Topple This House of Cards

The destruction was astounding… and we didn’t even suffer the brunt of the storm.My husband and I returned after evacuating South Florida, and the amount of damage we encountered was stunning.Downed power lines. Uprooted trees. Broken windows. And millions of people without power.Even now, nearly two weeks later, the area where we live and work is still attempting to recover. I continue to hear stories of people without power. The electric at our office cuts out randomly as workers repair area lines.The recovery from the storm will be ongoing for the next several weeks – and for the Florida Keys, the next several months.And there’s another storm ready to pummel the U.S. and leave behind a painfully slow recovery that could eat away at your wealth if you’re not prepared.We’ve Got a ProblemThe Great Recession left not only the United States but the entire globe in a financial crisis. And the first order of business: Spend!Nearly every government latched onto the promise of spending their way out of the disaster.Within the U.S., we fired up the printing presses and defined the era of “easy money” with ultralow interest rates.And the price is that we’ve tallied up nearly $20 trillion in public debt. That debt is 107% of our gross domestic product (GDP).

But the U.S. isn’t the only country struggling with debt.Japan has had a debt problem for decades. While its debt sits at only $11.4 trillion, it accounts for 239% of its GDP.Greece, Italy, Portugal and Belgium also have public debt that exceeds their GDP.Throughout the Great Recession, we saw numerous countries ratchet up their debt levels so that it stood at a higher percentage of their GDP.And while we’ve managed to stay afloat despite all of this debt thanks to an economy that is slowly but steadily growing, we are facing a dangerous time ahead. It’s all thanks to the Federal Reserve.Enter the FedThe Federal Open Market Committee met recently. It was pretty much a nonevent, as everyone expected. Rates remained unchanged, hovering between 1% and 1.25%. That’s still the highest level since September 2008.But we know that Fed Chair Janet Yellen and the rest of her team aren’t content to stop there.More rate hikes are coming.The headline unemployment rate is resting near its lows at 4.4%, the economy is humming along and the stock market remains hot.Sure, low inflation figures are still troubling the Fed.But I’m not so sure that’s going to stay the Fed’s hand from raising rates yet again when it meets in December.And rising interest rates mean that interest payments on all that debt – both government and private – are going to rise.Consumers and the government are going to have less to spend thanks to massive amounts of debt and rising interest rates.We’ve seen too often that the Fed takes interest rates a step too far, and it’s always well after the damage is done that it realizes its mistake. It’s time to brace for the Fed going a step too far, too fast.And the U.S. is no longer alone when it comes to lifting interest rates.The Bank of Canada surprised the market when it hiked its key interest rate by 25 basis points earlier this month to 1%.The Bank of England has recently started dropping some heavy hints that it plans to lift interest rates – the first increase in nearly a decade. The Bank of England’s key rate currently stands at 0.25%.Many market commentators have talked about the market nearing a tipping point. While we’re watching for that big, flashy bang that could topple this house of cards, it could actually arrive as a slow, painful unraveling.

But you don’t have to watch your own wealth unwind with the rest of the market.A Better Portfolio BalanceThe turmoil that could roil the markets should the Fed continue to lift rates and squeeze spending doesn’t have to destroy your portfolio as well.It’s important that you take steps now to make sure that your wealth is properly diversified against the uncertainty within the market.One critical facet of your portfolio should be physical gold. The yellow metal has historically grown in value while the economy struggles. It’s insurance against a correction… or worse.Another is to have exposure to a variety of different sectors.The key is to take a hard look at your portfolio now and evaluate what could likely be hit by a significant market correction.Are all your holdings in one sector?Are all your holdings in aggressive positions?Do you have trailing stops or an exit strategy in place to protect your gains?Don’t be afraid to take some profits off the table and rebalance your holdings. It’s always better to lock in some gains than suffer the pain of getting out too late.

The Invention of Man That Is Destroying the World

Money, finance, the economy, and the impending end of the world are all linked and the reason is obvious. Greed and wealth creation is first and foremost in the minds of most who see nothing wrong with destroying the environment and taking whatever they can from others. Their goal is hoarding as much as they can while showing the rest of the world how great they are. What they don’t know is how poor they are.

Following my reincarnation and with a strong link to the Spirit of the Universe it has led me to see the big picture. At a time shown to me between lives it called to take me away from the world and teach me what life is about.

It’s a simple story but one that would be above the heads of most who try to understand it in the light of religious teachings and the greed that has impacted the earth. This is our only planet on which we can live and yet man is destroying it at a great rate of knots to make money and stick it in the bank or some investment portfolio.

Can they in all honesty believe that this is the purpose of their lives. Yet it would seem that it is exactly what they were put here to do.

My first commission is to tear down the wall of blindness and recover God’s people who are caught up behind a wall of lies and confusion. In fulfilling that goal it was important to understand how and why things have developed to this point. We are on the brink of destruction and the earth and all life on it is at risk.

That wall is built by man’s imagination and false gods that have been created to explain life and death. In their efforts to be powerful men devised heaven and hell and used them as tools to rope others in to their opinions and dreams. If they could convince others of their own convictions, then for them they became true.

That’s why religions are now so powerful and rich. The leaders know nothing of the Spirit and they push money ahead of common sense. Through trade and then domination of nations riches became more important than life itself and all one needs do is look at how many suicide when they face financial ruin.

Money is nothing! It has no place in the function of the world except that the Spirit is using it to bring life to an end. Those hungry enough to be caught in its web are overseeing the disaster. That’s according to the prophecies in the Old Testament that promise this day would come.
