Thrive Academy September Newsletter

This Month’s Topic Links (articles and videos)

Corruption — There are new articles here at the top of the page regarding what’s really going on in the world (these relate to the Deep State — central bankers and oligarchs), so that you might get the idea that it’s not just me that’s a conspiracy theorist!

COVID Truth — a number of new articles have been added here

The Stock Market — a review of this very sick market with an analysis of the wave structures at the top

Gold — an update to gold (silver will be the same)

Additions to Banking — I’ve added a very important, independent article which gives an in-depth explanation of what I cover in the video.

Health — There’s a new topic where I’ve added an article on inexpensive routines you can follow to boost your resistance to disease. I’ll be adding much more over the coming monhs.

Traits of Cycle Tops (TO COME) — a video that takes you through some of the highs and lows of history and shows how they relate to history and what we’re going through now.

Mountain House Freeze Dried Food (72 hours Update)

I introduced the Mountain House freeze-dried products last month and shortly thereafter, they were almost completely sold out (not my doing, of course). I’ve been attempting to contact 72hours.ca in Canada to no avail. While their website is up and I think you can order from it, the phones don’t answer and the offices are not open, as far as I can tell. However, there are a couple of items in stock … some #10 cans and they’re at the link below.

Mountain House® #10 Can Entree Packages

I’ll continue to monitor the site and give them a call weekly to see if I can connect, and will keep you apprised.

The Stock Market

If you’re a stock speculator, it’s time to pay attention to the markets internationally. Within the next ten days, I’m expecting the start of a large bear market drop. The DOW will drop about 10,000 points and the SP500 about 1600. It looks like this drop will be similar in length (time-wise) to the drop earlier this year from early February through March. It took about a month.

That puts the bottom of the market very likely around the time of the US election — which is certainly going to set off some fireworks!

The US dollar is going to turn to the upside, which is deflationary, which means that money is being destroyed (mortgages and other loans failing). Less money in the economy makes it more valuable — as a result, prices of assets drop. For more on deflation, go to the deflation topic.

While the effects may not be instantly apparent, the destruction of money will have long-lasting effects. It will also destroy many more jobs and put a lot more homeowners with mortgages “under water” as real estate prices drop dramatically.

The coming “drop” I’m expecting won’t be the start of the “crash” although many in the media will say that it is. I’m expecting one more wave up to a new high after this drop and a final top in the first half of next year, 2021.

Gold and silver are at highs and will likely turn down at the same time as the market (and as the US dollar heads up) and this will usher in a multi-year gold and silver bear market.

International exchanges will also be hit hard. For example, DAX (the German index), TSE (the Toronto index), and ASX (Australian index) will see similar implosions.

One thing that it will do is reinforce the idea that these crazy virus lockdowns are the cause of the bear market (debt is the actual cause). Governments are going to see the brunt of major attacks because people are getting fed up wit the draconian responses around the world and the media has linked the economy (and hence the stock market) to the shutting down of businesses.

Many of the rules around this corona virus make absolutely no sense whatsoever and the truth is starting to come out that people aren’t dying in huge numbers, that the number of cases have been exaggerated, and that masks don’t really do anything (in my city, people were forced to wear masks at the beginning of August after the virus was pretty much over. There’s going to be a backlash against the government, which is already experiencing a major drop in trust.

Politicians are “starting” to look like fools (yeah, “starting” is probably the wrong word).

As I often say, “When is it the government has has told the truth about ANYTHING?” More and more, people are going to start coming around to the truth about what is going on and fear is going to start turning into rage and despair.

We’re in for a very unsettling fall.

it’s also shaping up to be a very cold winter, so be prepared!

Around the World

In the “real world” (or maybe “unreal world” would be a better term), riots are continuing in the US, but the more telling situation is in other countries. People are rebelling against the ridiculous draconian lockdowns. This past week saw the largest demonstration in Germany’s history, and a very large one in the United Kingdom. The United Kingdom has come up with a set of ridiculous new rules. Here’s an article on that: The stupidity in the United Kingdom.

Australia had the first stages of a revolt in Melbourne the weekend past. “Dictator Dan,” as he’s called, the premier of the state of Victoria has doubled down and threatened more fines if people don’t stay at home (other than a few hours allowed outside) and wear their masks whenever outside. He’s been arresting pregnant women for posting on Facebook and Premiers of other provinces are doing nutty things like not letting people visit dying relatives (in areas with no virus at all). He’s also considering another year of the same. My bet is that it’s not going to happen (not that he won’t try).

In New York City this week, Mayor de Blasio has suddenly agreed to let restaurants open. Apparently the virus reacts to the $2 billion lawsuit filed against him and the city in the past week by a group of restaurant owners.

These politicians abusing the power they’ve been given are going to have a revolt on their hands and it won’t be pretty. In fact, when you consider where the market is going, with a likely bottom in October near the US election, you can expect major uprisings all over the world. The mood is about to turn a lot more negative.

The truth about this rather mild flu bug is coming out from many different sources now and as that information becomes more pervasive, expect a complete loss of credibility for governments around the world. It will not be the desired outcome for the central bankers and their plans for a New World Order.

No matter, the market will still continue on its path, immune to events of the day. This is going to be a prolonged process, but the coming drop will turn the population much more negative, and likely less willing to conform to these ridiculous, unconstitutional lockdown laws.

And watch out for those rather hurried vaccines. The UN has had to admit that The Gates Foundation is funding a vaccine that’s causing children to be paralyzed.

Elsewhere, the heat is getting turned up on Google, which, with other tech social media giants, is trying to muzzle the truth (this always happens at major cycle tops, although the propaganda power they have is greater than at any time in history). There’s an anti-trust law suit in the wings and US Attorney General Barr is reportedly trying to get it in the works before the election.

At the same time, there’s the promise of the Durham probe into the attempted “soft coup” in the US resolving to at least lay down some indictments in the month of September.

In Canada, we have a corrupt Prime Minister who has shut down parliament to hide his malfeasance and is now apparently planning to spend many billions more in attempt to stay in power. He has named a new finance minister, Chrystia Freeland, who knows nothing about finance, but has strong ties to George Soros (and is a Rhodes Scholar — a program that has ties to the New World Order — a single world government and monetary system for all), socialism, and long-held beliefs in eugenics). Word has it that Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau is contemplating an international monetary loan to expand on the unprecedented billions he has spent during his time in office. This country is bankrupt, morally and economically, as are so many others.

This is a turning point in history, displaying the same human traits and parallel events of previous 1000 year cycle tops.

From the writings of Dr. Raymond H. Wheeler, PhD:

“The sixth century BC, the first AD, the fifth AD, and the 10thand 15thwere all natural turning points in history, marked each time by the decline and fall of civilizations the world over and the birth of a new era. In each case these centuries terminated 500 year cycles in long range weather trends.

The six century BC, the fifth AD, and the 15thmarked a end of the still longer cycle, on the order of 1000 years. These sentries were characterized by exceptionally profound reorganizations and revolutions in the civilizations of the world.

Current events show that another world convulsion is occurring second only to:

    1. the emergence of rational thought in the sixth century BC,
    2. the fall of Rome and other ancient civilizations in the 5th-century and the beginning of the medieval world based on feudalism, and
    3. the final collapse of the Middle Ages in the 15th-century.

The current convulsion is comparable to the birth of Christianity in the first century and to the birth of the modern nation as a feudal principality in the ninth and 10 centuries.”

Where You Live

Migrations are a major trait of major cycle tops. We’ve seen migrations across Europe. Many of these had to do with escaping wars and starvation. There’s now another type of migration — from cities to the countryside. This, too, is an expected trait of cycles tops. At the moment, it has a lot to do with the breakdown of law and order in major American cities.

There’s another factor, though, and that’s climate change (not the current scam, the fact that we’re going from a warm-wet climate to a cold-dry one). Along with a change in climate, we’re going to have problems with the food supply. A colder, dryer climate results in a shorter growing season, particularly in colder climates, like that of Canada.

The US has had flooding, as had Europe and this has ruined fields and resulted in poorer quality crops and fewer of them. As the economy breaks down and transportation systems are compromised, the food supply is going to be adversely affected. You want to live close to food and water.

Here are the forces at work that are leading to urban-rural migration:

  • Cities in times of economic turmoil, become hotbeds of violence. We’re certainly seeing that play out in the US at the moment at the hands of Antifa and Black Lives Matter (both well-funded by outside entities). Just wait until transportation breaks down and food and water become an issue!
  • Many cities are bankrupt due to union contracts that are saddled with enormous benefits and offer extraordinarily high salaries compared to the private sector. These cities will suffer a breakdown in government services (like garbage removal, road upkeep, etc.) and will attempt to become viable again through increased taxes rather than reducing payrolls.
  • As we get deeper into the depression, transportation systems are going to start to break down, limiting access to food and other necessary products.
  • Real estate prices are already starting to implode, as this article about what’s going on in New York City explains. People are moving out in droves, and this is only the beginning. This will further destroy the tax base and more and more businesses will close.

So, if at all possible, it’s in your interest to think about where you live and both the safety aspects and access to basic living requirements, the most important one being food.

Because real estate prices are going to continue imploding (they’re expected to drop to less than 20% of prices at the top of the market), during the next 5-7 years, it’s far better to rent than to own a home (if you have a mortgage).

Here’s a short list of things to consider relating to the province or state that you might consider moving to:

  • In the US, the political affiliation (and the history of the local municipality). This is important in other countries, as well, but the US is going to experience an all-out civil war and you want to be as far away from that as possible, obviously.
  • The tax base and most importantly, the debt situation. Some sub-states do not have all that much debt, while others are on the verge of bankruptcy
  • You want to move close to natural water, and have the ability to plant your own garden. It’s a good idea to move to an area that allows you to have chickens, for example. This was a big deal during the 1930s depression.
  • Schooling is going to be another big issue. I expect home schooling to become much more prevalent, and if you have kids, of course, this is a big concern.
  • Find a like-minded community that’s able to provide additional security for what’s to come. Community is going to become exceptionally important in the years to come.

I’m sure there are many more things that you need to think about, and if you have additions to this list, please add them in the comments area below.

We’re going to head into a period that has historically been labeled, the “Dark Ages.” You need to be prepared for limited government services, and that means bonding with your local community is going to become more important than ever!

Thoughts on Money

Central bankers have been quite vocal about their desire to create one world currency and a single government. So, it’s certainly not a conspiracy theory, although many would have you think so.

The desire has been in the works since at least the 1960s. The experiment, of course, was the Euro. It took a full 15 years to fully implement (from 1999 – 2015) and is not ending well. The European Union is on its last legs and the balance sheets of many European countries are imploding. The United Kingdom has supposedly left the union (if they get their act together and make a collective decision to follow through on the results of the national vote).

History of the Euro (Wikipedia)

The problem with the Euro “one currency idea” is that the economies of these countries are all different. It’s not logical to have one currency of common value across economies that have different spending and production levels, different governments and policies, and in this day and age, different levels of debt.

Germany has ended up being the run-away best performer, while other countries, such as Greece, is the equivalent of the black sheep of the Euro family. The issue is still simmering in the background as other, larger economies, like Italy and Spain, are on the verge of bankruptcy. While this is happening, pressure has been put on countries like Germany to help “fill the void” by subsidizing the poorer performers. That isn’t going to happen.

With the United Kingdom having left the European Union, the writing is on the wall. It shouldn’t be very long before you see other countries start to revert back to their own currencies again. That would allow them tohave some control of their economies.

Will we see a single currency?

In my opinion, central bankers have the highest level of greed in the world, but not the intelligence to match. Even though we’ve had rumours of a single currency in the works on a worldwide scale, I don’t believe it’s likely we’re ever going to see it.

You can see the beginnings of the “set up” in Canada and Australia. Both countries are over their heads in debt with no way out, and like the rest of the G7 countries, they gave away their sovereignty to central bankers a long time ago. Canada gave away its sovereignty in 1974 under Pierre Elliott Trudeau (Canada now pays interest to the Bank of International Settlements for money it used to create on its own, resulting in interest payments of $1 trillion in 2012 alone). Once a government loses control of its money, it loses control of the economy (its sovereignty).

Central bankers got control of the United States when the Federal Reserve was created, in 1913. A well-written, easy-to-read book that tells the story of the creation of the Federal Reserve is “The Creature from Jekyll Island.” You’ll find a link on my recommended books page.

“Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.” — Mayer Amschel Rothschild

Here’s a very well-written article that addresses central bankers, the current banking system, and goes into depth on what’s going on in the world relating to money and banking:

The Problem With Money & How Central Banksters Rule The World.

Let’s get back to the original question of what’s going to happen in regards to currencies. I don’t know the answer to that question, but I can weigh in on the challenges, because I don’t see how a central, worldwide currency would work. I think the central bankers are getting desperate and their plan is up against a wall (in the name of Donald Trump).

There’s no question in my mind that the current situation in the United States is an ongoing attempt at a coup. The plan was to put Hillary Clinton in office as President, but that plan got upset when Donald Trump was elected: He’s not playing the globalist, One World Order game.

Changing a currency in individual countries may not be all that difficult, particularly ones that the central bankers control, like Canada, for example.

However, dealing with the reserve currency is a whole different matter. The reserve currency is used all over the world — there are still countries that use it as their currency. Oil is priced in US dollars, as is gold and silver, and a whole host of other assets. How you change over all those countries and change all that cash, re-price commodities, and stop a resulting world war over it, well, that’s a pretty big order.

Of course, the United States is not going to go quietly into the distance. In other words, it would be impossible to do in a short amount of time and time is getting tight (because we have a financial meltdown coming). Plus, you’ve got the European Union on the verge of falling apart.

The key issue central bankers have to deal with is that all the debt in the world is owed to them. The only way they’ll get it back and continue to hold the world hostage is to maintain control of monetary policy worldwide.

But central bankers don’t know about cycles. They believe (as we’ve seen in the US and Europe) that they can keep economies afloat forever. However, an economic, deflationary financial meltdown is going to start in 2021 and believe me, they have absolutely no control over that. It’s the forces of nature at work, or call it “history repeating,” if you like.

2007 was the theoretical top of the market. We should have started the “Big-ger Short” then, but central bankers have managed to keep the stock market (and a shadow of a vibrant economy) in place until now. However, they’re out of tools. This market is going to come down no matter what they do. These melt downs have happened throughout history at regular intervals. You simply can’t beat Mother Nature.

The force of the meltdown is going to be something to behold. In 1930, when the stock market was imploding, central bankers attempted to keep it afloat and failed. It’s actually their work that created the current bubble, but they will be powerless to stop the decline. I expect the DOW to go from the present level of approx. $30,000 to under $3,000 by the time it’s all said and done, in about 5-7 years from now.

That leaves a maximum of about a year to implement a world-wide currency, or introduce it to just the United States, as a minimum. But that’s only if they’re successful in getting Donald Trump out of office. That event sounds like it’s not going to happen on time, based upon the manipulation of the election (the counting and litigation of mail-in votes).

If there’s protracted challenge to the election, and the market starts down in the first half of next year, I expect a full-blown civil war to erupt. It always has at 1000 year cycle tops (which is what we have now), In fact, civil wars always crop up with the climate turns colder and dryer. This is a historical fact.

So, we’re talking about trying to introduce a new currency in 2021 in the midst of a stock market crash, a complete worldwide financial meltdown, a contested election, and a resulting civil war?

I don’t have a crystal ball, but I do know markets, cycles, and history. Based upon what I know. I think central bankers will lose the fight and likely will evetualy have to go into hiding, once everyone understands how they’ve destroyed the economy and lives. Cycle tops always bring out the truth.

Digital Money vs. Cash

Convenience always costs more. That’s the reason many go to a ‘big box store” for food. It’s less expensive than traditional supermarkets and doesn’t even compare to your local convenience store, in terms of pricing.

Digital money and credit cards are convenient. They work for bankers more than they do the general public. Bankers win because it lowers their costs, it gives them complete control, and they can charge for transactions. They provide as much propaganda as they can to make sure you don’t know the benefits (to them).

There’s more than one reason that the government (with central bankers behind it) are pushing digital money. With digital money, as I’ve said, they have no costs. They can create and destroy digital money at will.

Today’s money is fiat money. In other words, it’s got no intrinsic value; it’s worth whatever the government says it’s worth. It used to be that you could go to a bank and trade in your money for gold, but in the 1970s, Nixon unlinked the US Dollar from gold.

With digital money, consumers have no control. If a bank goes under (believe me, we’re going to see a lot of that in the not too distant future), you’re hooped! Once the ATM machine shuts down, do does your livelihood.

My recommendation: Keep only the money you need for transactions in the bank. Research safety deposit boxes (very safe ones — that requires some homework) or buy yourself a safe. In the 1930s, mattresses were safes. Forget all the “wonderful” things you’ve been told about banks; they are NOT your friend.

There are private banks and there are public banks. Private banks are connected to central bankers and are backed by investors who will leave when the going gets tough. Public banks are backed by taxpayers. The Bank of North Dakota is the only one I know of in the US (although several states have introduced legislation and done nothing about it). Alberta Treasury Branches is the only one in Canada. Public banks faired very well during the Great Recession in 2008.

There are community banks that may be relatively safe, but this also requires some homework. Considering where we’re going, I think you need to have the bulk of your wealth where you can see it — in cash. As we say in a deflationary environment, CASH IS KING!

This is a credit crisis. The debt is going to implode. Banks will not be offering loans in the next few years and most credit cards will cease to exist. When all this happens, it will be good thing to have gold and silver coins on hand, but I think that’s not until the stock market gets close to the bottom of the market, in 5 – 7 years. We’re going into spiralling deflation and when that happens, assets drop dramatically in price, the value of money increases, and debt mushrooms. You want to get completely out of debt, because in a deflationary environment, it becomes extremely difficult to pay it off.

Know the Past. See the Future

    Good information. Your the best

    • admin September 13, 2020, 3:15 pm

      btw, Steve,
      I added a chart of the SP500 showing the trajectory going forward. You’ll find it in the stock market area. You’d asked about it.

    I try to follow the sense of the cycles as best as I can, but being in India, is challenging to say the least. My bank is Wells Fargo, can’t leave money there, I could make 4/5% in an Indian bank, but you can’t just take it out of the country, plus my visa is up in about 21/2 years and that closes the bank account, plus lately I’ve been reading that the gov’t sees anyone who has cash as a criminal with all kinds of problems depositing or withdrawing with lots of forms to fill out -will probably get worse. PM’s dropping, alt coins dropping. George Gammon says T-bills, but I doubt I could buy them from here. Transfer wise says they keep your money in “risk free” banks. I can’t see any way out here. You have any ideas? Thanks, Charles

    • admin September 14, 2020, 7:05 am

      Your money is in a Wells Fargo bank in India? or where?

      • peter September 27, 2020, 1:59 pm

        We handled this offline, btw.

  • Kyle Klinger September 27, 2020, 1:37 pm

    Peter, that was a very well written analysis of what’s coming our way. Thank you for that. I’m hoping you’ll be continuing your Traders Gold Service until the Dow finally reaches 3000 (or thereabouts). 🙂

    Kyle and Deb

    • peter September 27, 2020, 1:59 pm

      We’ll see … that’s a ways away and it will be a different world. I don’t know if many banks will be around then, or credit (to any great degree).
