Playtime? – Market Assessment – CaTRUSStrophe - Don't Panic! – "His Time, Not Mine" – Shoes! - Theatre of Politics – The New Emergent Economy - Letter from Great Britain [10-15-22]
"If I don't know - I can't act" – Knowledge of The Word is Spiritual Power
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: When is a good time to go on holiday? Answer; when the markets have gone crazy, the theatre that is politics is in chaos, and Joe Public is so disgusted with our apology for a ruling class in Britain – we have dissolved in satire and terminal laughter! I took most of the week off and went out to play with my mates whilst keeping an eye to windward as our cretinous dystopian Houses of Parliament returned on Monday and noisily melted down.
Many economic forecasters were humbled by the new CPI report – and they should be. It is clear that the American economy, which in many ways controls the global economy, is deeply unhealthy and in need of major reform – if not a complete overhaul.

BREAKING NEWS: Markets Friday October 14 – BoE announces, the two-week intervention in the long-dated bond (Gilt) market, started on September 28, to end having been informed that a number of liability-driven investment (LDI) funds, held by pension schemes, were hours from collapse.
Chancellor for 39 days only, Kwasi Kwarteng was to deliver an updated medium-term fiscal plan on October 31, the same day the Bank of England has earmarked to commence selling gilts as part of its wider monetary tightening efforts. Kwarteng cut short a visit to the IMF, flying back to Britain as HMG convened to address Britain's economic and political crisis, only to be 'SITA'd (sacked in the air). As they say, a greater love hath no political leader than that they lay down the lives of their friends to save their own. ZeroHedge has the summary for a week of turmoil: https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/chaotic-week-clobbers-bonds-bullion-big-tech
The history, from last Sunday per Wolf Richter, is worth reviewing so we can see these extraordinary political moves by 'Bizzy Lizzy' yesterday – suddenly sacking Kwasi Kwarteng and replacing him with that sneaky globalist Remainer Jeremy Hunt, who has zilch experience of the UK Treasury – it makes no sense. I will have to look into the dark corners of this 'lockdown-loving' man's political past and connections; but I suspect a hidden agenda to drive Britain back into the arms of the EU? I am reliably informed that he has a distant family link to 'The Firm' – dots are beginning to connect.
If this agenda proves to be the case, I have no doubt that the globalist mafia, aka, Blair & Co, are behind it. He has already proven to be the handmaiden of the Banksters in their manic pursuit of CBDCs and a 'Social Credit System ' to enslave the remains of the global village as already practiced by the CCP. https://wolfstreet.com/2022/10/11/something-big-has-already-broken-price-stability/
'ABSOLUTELY NO SHAME' over tax cut U-Turn; Liz back-tracks but explains to Sky News how and why it was a decision that had to be made: here are 10 mins challenging Liz Truss and her policies this week; tough economic times she says, but I think she managed the interview well enough:
BUT note Einstein's projection into the 21st century was indeed prophetic, but will it come true? https://www.explainxkcd.com/wiki/index.php/1687:_World_War_III%2B .We can only wait and see. The message is clear – DON’T' PANIC – allow short term events to unfold. Liz acknowledges interest rates are not for the government to determine – over to you OBR!
OBR - 'Office for Budget Responsibility' is suddenly the most important institution in the country. Its verdict, which it is now working through, will make a massive difference to whether the government can claw back some much-needed credibility. It was set up in 2010, by the then-chancellor George Osborne, under a temporary chairman, Sir Alan Budd. It is now one of about 40 'independent' fiscal institutions around the world. It was introduced to provide an independent, but official perspective, on the economy and the public finances. But let us not forget Blackrock's Larry Fink's statement in 2019 – 'Going Direct' – here's a reminder:
The OBR is sometimes called the government’s economic and fiscal watchdog, is required by law to produce two forecasts a year, in the form of five-year forecasts for the economy and the public finances (spoiler alert: they have never got it right – tea leaves would have done better). It also assesses the government’s performance against its own rules for the budget deficit and government debt, reports on the long-term ‘un’sustainability of the public finances and tests official costings of individual tax and welfare measures: aka 'Selling the Banksters' Book'
This is from The Times (paywall – but a free period is offered) – full details at 'The Times' newspaper - Hat Tip to my readers: "The Travelers! Eila and Alistair" for the link – (well found guys): https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/ THE OBR [Judging by their email code, I guess they are fellow yachtsmen?] So here is some fun viewing below:
DON'T PANIC! – "Capt. Mainwaring!"
The fact is the OBR will confirm at the end of this month, that the policies submitted to them from our 'political puppets' – guided by "you know who'" - will settle the markets and all the oligarchs will breathe a sigh of relief when they then will know it's OK to go back to robbing Joe Public whilst he stands on the picket lines, day after day, and achieves precisely NOTHING. This is how it goes at the OBR:
HERE ARE some silly definitions: "In the United States Army (USA), U.S. Marine Corps (USMC), U.S. Air Force (USAF), and U.S. Space Force (USSF), captain (abbreviated "CPT" in the USA and "Capt" in the USMC, USAF, and USSF) is a company-grade officer rank, with the pay grade of O-3" and yet they are deemed so clever, by the use of their acronyms? However that is the price of hubris – nobody really believes it – here's looking at you Herr Klaus Schwab! Joe Public is smarter than you will ever know.
Don't you know, you arrogant sod, that each and everyone one of us is God's special creation endowed with a magical power to deliver love and comfort to the troubled millions irritated by your evil dystopian works. The time limit for your earth-walk is coming to an end – it's actually overdue – but Satan has given you an extended time-slot to do his filthy work! May you rot in Hell, with all your other demons, vested upon this beautiful Blue Dot in the immensity of YHWH's universe?
But revenge is mine saith the Lord. Christians could have tried to take revenge on Paul, especially when he was waiting, blind, in Damascus. (Acts 9:3-15) - Recognising our own weaknesses also helps in overcoming the bitterness that leads to a desire for revenge. YHWH will deliver His verdict on those such as Herr Klaus in "His Time, Not Mine!" Well, that's got that out of the way! Now back to reality – really? OH NO!
WE ARE REGALED every day by the "Globalists' Theatre" with all our leaders merely players on a global stage. Yes, really, it is all a grand play with our pathetic politicians selling their souls for 30 pieces of silver. It will do them no good; but some ignorant souls know nothing of our great Creator, for it is written:
"Nations can succumb to pride and a wrong view of wealth—and so can individuals. Jesus gave a parable that showed how subtle this snare can be. He spoke of a rich man whose fields produced very well. Delighted, the man planned to build larger storehouses for his produce and happily looked forward to a long life of comfort."
But this did not happen. God said to him: “Unreasonable one, this night they are demanding your soul from you. Who, then, is to have the things you stored up?” Yes, the man died, and his wealth availed him nothing.- (Luke 12:16-20) It's all there, written in the Bible if you chose to read it – but you have free will, given by the grace of our Creator – so it's your choice.
Value that which has been given freely to you – go forth and know that YOUR MISSION is to help others - nothing more – nothing less! It is what our earth-walk is all about – storing up 'wealth' is a trap into which many of us fall, and the globalist banksters know it better than you. Wake up! You are a slave, but you don't know it! Back to the theatre and the Great Play:
Britain's new and unproven Parliament was opened this week with 'Liz-the-Biz' under pressure to U-turn. Whoever would want this job? There's got to be something to it which I have missed. You see, I am content that my needs are met, each and every day, that's enough for me – but clearly not enough for those whose egos have extended beyond our earthly perception. Is it a mental dis- ease?
It looks like we will have a 'Budget' at the end of this month but they may change it again, given the last round of Tory U-turns. So, more U-turns appear as the divided Tory party attempts reconciling their differences for the opportunity to have a chance at the next election in 2024; if they survive that long. You know what the horrendous consequences may be? Yes, a Lab/SNP coalition – How does this sit with you?
Me? I am with independence for Scotland, in fact I am rooting for independence for regions like my wonderful Wessex (The West Saxons) and they knew a thing or two about how to effectively manage a group of productive and hard-working people with skills that have been nearly altogether lost in our supposed 21st century "technocratic 5G, internet-enabled smart, bloody everything. As far as Herr Klaus is concerned, he can go whistle, because we (the 99%) know how to do things and produced things. Does he know how to make a shoe? My father was a cobbler, he knew how to do it, but who can do it now? It really ain't easy.
But the Romans also knew how to do it too, 2,000 years ago! I really don't think we have 'progressed' – we have in fact regressed so this is the BEST I can offer for the near future. In my book, the final Chapter 13, I postulate an 18th century life style after the collapse of our fragile western civilisation.
Do you know how hard it was to live in those days? Take a trip back to 1754: "Thomas Turner (1729-93) was a key figure in the village of East Hoathly, Sussex, where he was a shopkeeper, undertaker, schoolmaster, tax-gatherer, churchwarden, overseer of the poor, and much besides. In his diary he recorded eleven colourful years of daily life in a Georgian village." https://www.amazon.co.uk/Diary-Thomas-Turner-1754-1765/dp/0952451603
SHOES ARE INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT as perhaps you will agree, if you have ever hiked for two days over the South African Karoo's sharp and cutting shale as I did in 2007, tracking down a wounded Kudu. Here is some boring family history of mine sparked by my daughter-in-law (a scientist) testing my genome. It seems I am of Viking stock (90%) which explains my penchant for sailing and farming with a little pillage mixed in! Shock-horror - so how come I have the Anglo-Saxon surname of Underwood? My son has researched our family ancestry.
My father was born illegitimate, in 1913, in Luton, Bedfordshire, registered by the name of SIDNEY HORACE BARTLETT-UNDERWOOD, (Note the 'Capitals' – it's significant and will be explained in one of my future Letters). Edwin Bartlett, my father's natural father, a hat factory owner in George Street, Luton, did not deny his ginger-haired son (ginger hair is significant: The Rus' - was a Viking tribe; they established Russia in their wanderings during the 9th century).
My dad’s mother, Florence Underwood, gave birth to my father when her mother, Ruth Underwood was having her 13th baby born within two hours of each other (and they all survived, unusual for those days). The Underwoods were a rough lot, living in the back-streets of Luton, which made Coronation Street look positively utopian. Edwin never denied his son and paid for my father's keep and education within the extended and extremely dysfunctional Underwood family in Buxton Road, Luton. (My dad was often locked in an under-stairs cupboard for 24 hours or more at a time for being disobedient and thus suffered claustrophobia throughout his life.)
My dad worked towards his Doctor of Divinity after matriculating, but he rejected the imagery of the church. He wanted to know what people really needed in life and so he embarked upon an adventure as a 'tramp', in those days known as a wayfarer. After six months on the road and a respite at Hilfield Friary, Cerne Abbas in Dorset, he determined that what people needed beyond anything else, short of shelter, food and water, was shoes! Thus in 1929 he embarked on an apprenticeship to become a cobbler and in 1934 set up his craft serving the gentry - operating out of a shop in St Albans owned by one Mr Olney .
When I was born in 1944, my dad considered his surname too long to manage, so he dropped the Bartlett (in error) on my birth certificate. Dad's legacy of his sojourn at the Friary in Cerne Abbas signified in my life when I visited Hilfield Friary in 2014 as a salute to his good and worthy life. What did he leave me? Nothing, in worldly goods, but a universe of wisdom and a strengthening of my 'spiritual spine' – I am pursuing his mission to this very day!
And just as my dad wanted to know what he could give back to his 'community' - I too have inherited a mission that was revealed to me. I have always been confused about why I am here on earth. I claimed that I was not of this earth because I have no recollection of anyone giving me a choice to descend to this planet and live a life of pain and loss. I should have preferred to remain in my spiritual nirvana.
I often screamed out to the universe in the mornings at dawn: "what's the bloody point? Why am I here? Who am 'I' - when I look in the mirror now, an old and wizened man looks back at me asking: “Am I you?” “Who are you?” I feel 25 and have the body of a 50-year old, according to the medics. But I don't deserve this God-given temple because I have abused it to extremes with nicotine, sex and alcohol in my youth and 60 ciggies a day in the 1970s!
I should have passed on long ago but somehow the angels protected me from my manic self. It was the 1960s you see – the near Armageddon that JFK initiated in 1962, when I was 19 and I asked my dad what we should do seeing on TV, JFK's ultimatum to Khrushchev –" turn around your missile ships or we launch!" I swore: "(expletive)! What do we do now?" My dad was nonchalant – eat, drink and be merry he said – for tomorrow we die, in 4 mins, when the sirens sound and our painted-out white windows they said would protect us from the 'flash'.
It's great publicity - but totally unreal crap. It is 'marketing' you see – invented in the good old USA, as usual, polluting the world with their satanic rituals – thanks to the mad Democrats (plus sycophant Republicans.). They are all equally BAD for humanity! But we did party, BIG TIME; we did not die; but the rest is the history of the 1960s etc.
I am sure that our crazy 1960's were a direct result of this horrendous experience, (Mass Formation Psychosis) – at least for me anyway. AND now we are here again? This is why I named my blog 'Protect and Survive' - the name is that of a leaflet issued by HMG with instructions to survive a nuclear blast. Who are these bureaucratic nutcases that believe nuclear war is survivable?
During this Fourth Turning, we need to rid the world of these geriatric power-maniacs scripted to read the commands of their Bankster puppet-masters. We must get Gen X in power fast before we lose everything! Gen X holds a different world view – a vision of a peaceful and cooperative world - where everyone is valued as God's precious creatures. For God's sake you Global Leaders - please acknowledge your Maker's law – "thou shalt not kill" - if nothing else?
INFLATION WATCH: The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released what one report described as “a shocking CPI print so unexpectedly hot (a 2.9-sigma upside surprise to consensus) that even the bears were shocked.”
On Thursday, October 13, the report came out and the markets plunged, only to see the Plunge Protection Team (PPT) jump right in as usual to prop it all back up in a desperate attempt to keep this corrupt, crumbling system afloat for another day. Using the historical basis for inflation here we are nearer truth: https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-10-14-horrific-cpi-report-worst-inflation-ever-midterms.html
SURVIVAL MONITOR: While the Fed continues to hike rates to combat high inflation, history tells us that deflation will become a more significant threat when something “breaks” in the financial or credit markets. Inflation will reduce going into 2024 and the Great Depression II will commence offering a lower standard of living, less emphasis on material things and a growth in spirituality. I describe this in Chapter 13 of my book Part 1 and I am writing Part 2 now as a handbook to survive and prosper in a New Emergent Economy far removed from the hubris and greed of our post WW2 markets and banking which is presently undergoing collapse. It's nothing to be afraid of – it is to be welcomed as we enter the green and pleasant uplands of The Great Reset far removed from the vision of WEF and Banksters cabal: https://realinvestmentadvice.com/deflation-will-become-the-problem/
THE NARRATIVE BATTLE: Shocking revelation! "But I did not know that Emmanuel Macron was not vaccinated. I did not know that most of the government members were not, and I did not know as many of my fellow MPs were not either. I wanted to set an example.”
Macron is a graduate of Klaus Schwab’s “Young Global Leaders” globalism program in MP Lassalle’s assessment, Macron was pressuring all the rest of the politicians to do something that he himself did not do – despite claiming that he did. This is what is known as lying, and it is something that happens all the time in politics. " https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-10-14-macron-most-mps-not-vaccinated-says-politician.html

I have a few theories and some principles I live by. From a safety-standpoint, as a career ESHA professional I have come to conclude that work is safer if it is fulfilling for the worker.
From a principled standpoint, I feel that fulfillment is more important than mammon.
