From the link mentioned above, entitled “Israel Grants First Golan Heights Oil Drilling License To Dick Cheney-Linked Company”, it made me recall the valuable information I learned about the money system, the US dollar, gold and oil supplies from the book, ‘Bankruptcy of our nation’ by Jerry Robinson.

Oil, the black gold. The USA controls the global oil supplies, forcing other countries to purchase oil using only US Dollars. This means the Federal Reserve can print as much US dollars to the US Government as much as the Government wants to fund their wars and government programs like welfare without the risk of hyperinflation.

A greater supply of US dollars in global and domestic circulation benefits investors who own assets because the price of assets (houses, real estate etc.) increases greatly when the total amount of money in circulation is many times greater e.g. when the total amount of money in circulation is $2,000,000, it is not possible to charge potential buyers $1,000,000 for a mansion but when the total amount of money in circulation is in the billions and trillions of $$$s, there is a far greater amount of money in circulation so the prices of assets like the mansion can be sold at $1,000,000 because companies and rich people don’t want people to buy up all the assets like mansions and commodities like chocolate bars.

The money system is wicked and at the same time ingenious because Central Banks like the US Federal Reserve will print out paper money for the US Government to use for its various wars and programs like welfare but the Central Banks will also charge extra when the US Government attempts to pay back the original money it borrowed from the US Federal Reserve; I typed “attempts” because no matter how many times the US Government tries to pay back the original money by taxation, it is an impossibility because only the interest charged by the Federal Reserve can be paid by the US Government which means the US Government is heavily in debt.

The thing is, what makes the money system so ingenious is that during the economic boom years, money is circulated by Central Banks at low interest so there are more jobs and more companies in existence but then when economic recessions occur, the Central Banks demand all loaned money be paid in full with higher interests which means a LOT of companies go bankrupt and a lot of people lose their jobs and most likely become homeless like what is happening now in certain parts of the USA. It’s all planned. Because the US Government can only possibly pay off the increasing interest but not the actual original amount of money it borrowed from the Federal Reserve, the total amount of money owed to the Central Banks will always be greater than the total amount of money available to be used to pay off the borrowed money (this available money being the result of the blood, sweat and tears of ordinary hardworking people) so the poor and powerless are ensnared either with a lifetime of work to pay off the Government debt or they lose their homes and live on the street.

This is what I have read so far from ‘Bankruptcy of our nation’ by Jerry Robinson; I would highly recommend you buy his book to become financially literate and work towards financial freedom. I enclose the link for this amazing book below:

Know thyself

30 years of my life it has taken me to realise the hidden wisdom within that cryptic saying “know Thyself” by Socrates thousands of years ago. Knowing who you are means you know what your personality is and if it is suitable for the job you will be doing for the rest of your life; if you are an introvert,
you will not enjoy doing work where you must and need to entertain and socialise with your clients to generate business compared to someone whose
hobby usually involves partying a lot. Knowing who you are determines what your vision is for the future and it is that future that determines who will want to stay in your life whether a spouse, friend, business partner etc. People diverge from each other in life because of circumstances and because their vision of what they want in life, determined by who they are, conflict.

I learned this from Myles Munroe and a Facebook friend.

How many days left to live

I read on a blog somewhere many years ago on how many days a person can live: 365 days in a year, a 20 year old expected to live around until 65 years will have remaining years to live of 65-20= 45 years so 45 years = 45 x 365 = 16,425 days left to live.

Now, 3 years = 3 x 365 = 1095 days. In 3 years, 1095 days are removed from your remaining time to live so that makes you think a lot about if I go to this event or do this or that, am I wasting my time/ am I moving towards my life goal(s) with the limited time I have/ am I drifting aimlessly/ do I hang out with the right type of people/ do I have to argue with a person/ do I have to endure a difficult situation etc.

World Chess Board

Previously Afghanistan and Iraq were at the centre of the world’s equivalent of the chess board. Control the centre of the chess board and you control the rest of the board. This game of epic proportions.
Libya was a skirmish, like a flank attack when the chess player makes his moves using the Knights and Bishops supported by pawns, but it was not the centre of the chess board so it is largely unimportant compared to Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Iran controls a narrow strait that allows ships carrying oil to pass through.
Read Zbigniew Brzezinski’s 1997 book “The Grand Chessboard” for more information.
