"Capital Controls."

Tom's Journal.


Must Read: Fed Employees Rollout A Bold Idea To Trap The Entire Country’s Wealth

3.24.2014    BY KELLY BROWN

Free market economists are not going to be happy about this...
A major financial news source just published shocking details about a research report by two employees at the Federal Reserve Bank. The 36-page report applauds the use of “capital controls” in global markets.
If you’re unfamiliar with the term “capital controls,” it’s probably because we tend to avoid them in the United States in favor of a free market economy.
Capital controls are simply laws that regulate and restrict what you are allowed to do with your money by regulating the flow of cash in and out of a national economy. The laws define such things as where you can invest your cash and how you can allocate your assets.
If you take a look around the globe, you’ll see several recent examples—almost always from countries experiencing a currency crisis:
  • In Cyprus...some citizens cannot withdraw or write checks for more than €300 per day from their own accounts. These controls were put in place after the Greek debt crisis of 2012 and are set to continue until year-end.
  • In controls imposed in 2008 have blockaded offshore investors from selling $7.2 billion in assets.
  • In Argentina...citizens must pay an extra tax on vacations abroad.
  • In the Ukraine...recent tensions sparked a series of capital controls. Ukrainians must wait six working days before making any type of foreign currency purchases. In addition, they cannot exchange more than the equivalent of $5,800 USD within a given time period.
You might be wondering… how are these draconian laws “a useful tool for managing financial stability” as the recent Fed paper says?
Well, the Fed research claims that capital controls would protect the U.S. dollar from the effects of rapid cash movements...
Of course, the only countries that are worried about capital controls are those deeply worried about a currency crisis.
According to Steve Hanke, a professor of applied economics at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, “Capital controls signal that a country is very worried about preserving its foreign exchange....That means bad things are in the wind.”

For more than 50 years, Americans have never really thought twice about the value of our currency.
But times are rapidly changing. For example, the U.S. government has plans to strong-arm some of the largest financial institutions in the world by imposing a 30% withholding tax on all transactions concerning U.S. securities.
Most Americans don’t realize that the greatest weapon in our nation’s arsenal is not our military might or our education system, but the simple fact that the U.S. dollar is the world’s “reserve currency.” As such, our money forms the basis of the global financial system. And banks around the world hold our dollars in reserve against their loans.
That’s why, for the past few decades, we have been able to print and borrow trillions of dollars, with no real negative impact.
We are the only country in the world that does not have to pay for imports in a foreign currency. We can rack up enormous debts and then print more money.
But this exorbitant privilege could soon expire, because many of the most powerful countries around the world (including China and Russia) are looking for a new world reserve currency.
And when the U.S. dollar is no longer the world’s reserve currency… when we can no longer print money and borrow absurd sums without consequence– we are in trouble.
One financial guru, Porter Stansberry, believes this currency collapse in America is actually going to happen much sooner than most people think. He says that’s how currency collapses happen… gradually… slowly… then all of a sudden. And Mr. Stansberry has an uncanny track record of predicting some of the biggest moves in the economy over the past decade. In 2006 he announced GM would go bankrupt and in 2007 he predicted Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac would also soon go bankrupt. Both of his predictions came to fruition.
WATCH: Learn more from Porter Stansberry, here.
Now Stansberry says the next big collapse could be America’s currency. And even though most Americans think this could never happen… not here…Stansberry believes new laws set to go in place on July 1st 2014 will dramatically accelerate this process.
What is this law that was secretly passed by the Obama Administration… and how will it affect you, your money, and the U.S. dollar?
Stansberry and his Baltimore-based research team have put together a free slide presentation that explains everything you need to know. Get the facts and protect yourself here.

Earthquakes !

Tom's Journal.

Mathew 24: 7, talks about Earthquakes, in divers places. [KJV] Which means:  all over the place !  We distinguish this point, because the scoffers will say that the Earth has experienced these calamities ever since the Earth was in existence.    I believe that the book of Revelation says that there will be one HUGE quake in the Tribulation that will really shake us in our pants and kill millions of people, but that would be the last of MY worries.   I worry about displeasing my God and Father in the weakness of my pea pickin' heart right before the Rapture.   If, IF, IF, I could just manage to progress and keep my self clean, with just enough spirit and health, to attend all the church meetings, lead more people to the Lord and Salvation, until I die -- or get Raptured,  that would be all I want in the world.  

Friends,  If there be any good that come out of all the recent foul weather hardships here in the USA, and also the world,  may it be that those people/ humans still sitting on the fence will take a stand for Jesus, who died for all the world, yet few in comparison have stepped up to the plate, to confess "Jesus as Lord !"   And,  "Not the we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves;  but our sufficiency is of God."  ~2nd Corinthians 2: 5.   Yes,  we Christians have a form of "Liberty" -- no matter what our station of life may be, no matter where we live, or what Gov't we have and live under !!   Although right now, in April 30th, 2014, we are fast losing our Freedoms and Liberties, we may [for the most part] still read the Bible in the comfort of our own houses and churches, and dwell in a sort of 'spiritual Paradise !'  

For those of you fine people who know me well --  I admit that I complain too much about my life, relationships, poor health  and loneliness, U. P.,  but there are trillions of human beings on Earth who are truly LOST and feel totally abandoned.   One of the prime reasons that I pen this humble blog is to reach out and touch someone !!!  I even leave my email address here, available, so that the 'right people' looking for help can get that help... and sharing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  In that spirit, please pass this blog on and share it with others.   BEFORE the Anti-Christ arrives on the scene and changes everything on Earth, forever, until Jesus again comes to sweep things clean.  But much death and pure misery will be here before Christ comes !!!   Are you all ready for such continuous battles, bloody wars on your own door steps ??   If you are  younger, in your prime, between the ages of 18 thru 50, and well armed, Prepped, with gold, silver, money, good credit, a great job that  you love, that won't be eliminated --GOOD FOR YOU !!  If  you are anyone else -- prepare to suffer!   Now.... do ya all see how that situation works, guys and gals ?   Are you all smiles, high on drugs or drunk, grinning like a monkey now ?    I remember, when I was age 19, and going thru intense Army training, it was still very hard to deal with, yet some of YOU people are so cock-sure of how you will deal with things in the near future....  Ha! Ha!  This is not some 3 hour movie on TV, from Holly Wood, Jack !

I even hear from people 'very close' to me, how I have Prepped and wasted money to conserve, store and save large amounts/ containers  of water, candles, batteries, and canned soup.... duh, that I just wish it might come and be over with, like so many of my friends also say. 
   But like I said, if we can commune with God, and KNOW HIS MIND and HEART on many subjects,   we can and will be free in our hearts and minds, and enjoy a little chunk of Paradise right now.   I suppose we could say that there is a little "imagery" involved, meditation in the Bible, etc.  Besides the hearing ear, Christians can and will know God's attributes and feelings on all subjects just by reading and studying  the KJV Bible.     But that takes real effort and time management.   I am TRYING to teach that very stuff to someone I care about, right now.   However, we are all human, and therefore sinners.   2nd Corinthians, Chapter  4, verses 3- 4, says, "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:  In whom the god [small "g"] of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe NOT, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."    And I am even going to climb down out of my lofty tower now, even for the sake of my dear wife, Terri, to USE a different version of the Bible, like, perhaps, the NASB, or whatever, if that is  the challenge that she is struggling with, why she cares not for reading and understanding the meaning of the bible !   But I have always recommended getting a fine copy of the DEFINED KJV Bible, that helps people understand the old Shakespearean type of Old English:

I hope that I didn't sound sarcastic, because this is serious business, and the teaching of scripture is so very important, so that I could lose my head, for stumbling any of the 'little ones.'   

I know that I should never made fun of the killing tornadoes,  but that violent weather is moving East now, but never in the right place that we all want ---  to D.C.... lol.   They really need a cleaning out in Washington D.C., where most of the greedy liars live and work....   duh.

Warm Regards,

John Kerry-- "Messiah Complex."

Tom's Journal.

My wife worries and chides me about giving out too much personal information, on line:  Name, the approximate location of where we live, personal philosophies, etc.   But I figure that the 'powers that be' already have a fix on my 10/ 20, and can 'whack me'  any time they want.  Me Thinks that I am a 'small fish' anyway, and when it comes down to Bible Prophecies, the average 'public servant' or  Gov't agency is looking for a much larger threat than one, broken down old war horse like me... lol.  One way or another,  I don't expect to be around too much longer.   The daily stress of getting 'hen pecked', out living my marital usefulness will prob. be closer to killing me than anything more dramatic.   The lack of real TLC, and materialism,  can be a sharp dagger to the heart.    I'd be lost without the InterNet....

But, again,  Genesis 12: 3,  throws the spot light on America's abnormal, freaky weather patterns, that most people are bemoaning all Winter long, and now, into the 'Spring' --- as we in the U.P., and else where, are experiencing presently, tons of rain.   We have an expanded entire week of RAIN, RAIN, and MORE RAIN !!  Highs, only in the lower 40's, while violent tornadoes touch down in the South, East, and West!   Good Grief, Charlie Brown !  But maybe I should be THANKFUL, because I won't have the chance to crack up my 'new' 650 KAW, dirt bike.   

Well, not to be an in-grate, because all of our bills are paid off, PTL.   While other folks are homeless, and hungry, I suppose that my personal concerns are less dramatic.   I just got ANOTHER shipment of KJV Super Giant print Bibles yesterday, and hope to help more people where I live enjoy and learn from God's Word !!   I got a personal letter from, Mark J. Smith, Director of:  Bible Tracts, Inc., that I always carry around with me, that makes my preaching/ evangelizing work easier, and more effective.  Please check out: to get some free Bible Tracts, to hand out, leading honest, bible hungry people to the Gospel, and true Salvation !  PTL.   Friends,  my personal challenges are minuscule compared to what is just around the corner with the world !   I got a feeling that no matter how much we all prepare -- we are still going to get a jolt that will shake our knees together.  

Please also pray for my present challenge of chest congestion, COPD, and breathing.   Also for a friend in LOUISIANA, named,  George, the Aviator, who recently fractured his foot and leg in an accident.   I also need a new dental bridge, after the local VA just extracted an abscessed front tooth, in my handsome face, last week.   Noting the super long waiting time of the VA, I might even have to pay for more dental work per a CIVILIAN dentist soon enough, so I can better chew my food.  Another friend, fellow Vietnam Veteran, brother in arms, from LA, Roy, who was refused at his local VAMC, to just PULL his hurtful teeth out, another slap in the face of my fellow combat Veterans...  what a shame!   Obama is responsible for shaming and hurting the Veterans too....  while rewarding his good buddies, the Muslims, even our enemies, who are killing and maiming our brother fighting men and women, in the field of battle !!   And the beat goes on.

Have a great,  very wet, day!

Warm Regards,

Forget the blood moons, we've got Kerry
A book by John Hagge touted the possibility of prophetic things happening this year on Passover because of the tetra blood moons, as he called them. Well, nothing of note really happened. I would think that, while very interesting reading, when the sixth seal is broken and "the moon became as blood," humans will all know that it was quite supernatural and it was the Lord's doing. But I digress. We don't need blood moons to tell us that prophecy is advancing. We have John Kerry. On the heels of his "Poof" moment with Israel, he is now warning that Israel risks becoming "an apartheid state" if it doesn't allow the Palestinian terrorists to establish a nation on Israeli land. 
When it comes to Israel and the Palestinian terrorists, John Kerry is believed to have a "Messiah Complex." In September 2013 Israel's Defense Minister said that Kerry operates "upon an unfathomable obsession and a messianic feeling" and "The only thing that can 'save' us is that John Kerry will get a Nobel Peace Prize and leave us alone." It was just two weeks ago that Kerry blamed Israel for undermining the so-called "peace process" with the Palestinian Authority. This caused a diplomatic firestorm with the Israeli Prime Minister's office having to set Kerry straight on the facts. Meantime, the Palestinians cooked a deal with fellow terrorists Hamas and have refused to recognize Israel's right to exist. 
But if Israel doesn't give up its traditional lands in Samaria and Judea (West Bank) and a ribbon of land that cuts Israel in half reaching from the West Bank to Gaza (the Hamas terrorist experiment that went bad under George W Bush), Israel will become an apartheid state, according to America's wise and all knowing Secretary of State. "Kerry the messianic" might ought to read up on God's foreign policy in Genesis and Zechariah. In Genesis 12:3, the Lord says of Israel, "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee." In Zechariah 12:9, the Lord says, "And it shall come to pass in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." But Kerry persists.
The Daily Beast reports that Kerry, in a closed door "Trilateral Commission" meeting of world leaders, said that Israel risked becoming an apartheid state and that at some point he "might unveil his own peace deal and tell both sides to take it or leave it." The Daily Beast points out that this terminology is rarely used in diplomatic circles and that experts on apartheid have argued "that the comparisons between the Israeli treatment of the Palestinians and "apartheid" are offensive and wrong." Not only that, Kerry is offensive and wrong. Americans should demand his resignation. In fact, with such a case of foot in mouth disease, he should be permanently quarantined...just saying.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Pass the butter, please.

Tom's Journal.

My sincere THANKS to a new friend,  Gregary Lesniewski.

Sometimes I like to make a point of being stubborn [as sometimes being a 'GOOD thing' when you've read all the facts, and decide that 'THIS TIME' you are going against the popular way/ trend of the 'cool crowd' -- the 'cool' people who smoke, drink too much, don't invest in time-- proper resources,   etc.-- and then they love to make fun of YOU !    Ha!  Well here is a little 'pay back.'  

I wanted to drive South to visit my Mom and Brother Albert, and friends, but it seems like my wife, as usual, has gotten herself 'all trapped and planned in' so many so-called "appointments" and "good deeds"---so she just have the time to come with me.   I was going to try and prove to her that MY family has accepted her into our extended family circle.   Maybe that is why she 'accidently' completely left me out of her family get together at her ex-hubby's house in near by Wisconsin, as when her son, made a long   trip  to finally come back, from his new good paying job in Health Care, and U.P. here, Turkey hunting.   He and I get along great!!   I just WISH that I had a lot more close friends   U.P. here  besides him.....   dream on, dream on, sailor....  Ha!
     It's so funny with my 2 front teeth missing now...  duh.   It's not like I was younger, at age 21, missing a tooth, or something.   I am age 65 now and couldn't care less --- and people who I meet   daily could not care less either !!   It is my belief,  that I, in   this year and age-time- world, that life is worthless as we grow older, [as seen by the world of  stupid, godless, Bible- ignorant men and women, believe we older ones   are much less valuable.   Go figure:  abortion and euthanasia, just for starters....
      I was watching an old time video about Denmark, and the half-Socialist "EXPERIMENT" over there.   Where kids go into a school, run by trained nurses... for 'Day Care', and so do the older people !   It SEEMS like they all get  the right Social Contact, and needs met.    But we have not heard from the elderly, yet .   I am glad that this Social experiment took place, and what a beautiful race of people  !!  I wish t hat I could visit them, sometime, "to hear the real deal, and Truth of it all".   I heard that their food and beer is good.   The Danes used to be great military warriors in their Hey Day, as they used to raid the English Coasts and took over much of that little Island.   Just think:  The Island of England was first inhabited by the Angles, and Celts, then joined by the Saxons [from a Province of Germany], then parts of Scandinavia conquered the East side of the Island.   Invaded by Normandy, who were really a  transplanted people--the Vikings who had earlier invaded France [or Gaul], who bargained to have the Northern part of that country.  And after all, England has a rainy/ gloomy  sort of climate, and Scotland too.  But I think that makes for a hearty breed of man, and after all, many great people come from England, with some great Rock 'n Roll Bands !!  I still like the Beatles... lol.

My eyes are so bleary and hard to see from lately... Cataracts.. dang!   Another curse of old age!   And my stomach is 'bubbling' from that 'Antibiotics' that the VA gave me to use, before Dental work.   Friends,  I am sorry, for my prejudice against the so-called, Medical Community,  mostly because of their pompous attitude, and lies..... yes, LIES.  But do you even    know    what your chances are compared to entering a hospital vs:  entering the "Field of Honor-- the Battlefield ??"  
        I went into a 'fine hospital"    for  a  knee replacement surgery, and wound up getting infected with one of the worst Flesh eating MERSA diseases in the world !!!  And then some  egotistical "doctor"  whom I FIRED, tried to tell me that I could have picked it up at my own home....  duh.   What a horrible,   short, little,  Romanian jack ass !!   And then I found out from a close friend, that he got messed up with the same procedure, with the same disease, at the SAME Hospital a few years before me, except that they screwed him over worse !  They injured his kidneys so bad, by a laxidasical nurse who didn't pay attention to the drugs that SHE gave him
      ---God laughs at them too.   God has many of the answers already, in His Book, about LIFE, why we are here, what we are about to do, who we ought to worship, and how, and all sorts of historic events.  
       One of the most sacred, and heart warming things to see, is when a person first accepts God's Will to be Saved ! ! !  I mean,  really makes that initial commitment !  That really makes all the combined effort "worth it!"   And everyone can have a share in it.   
    Well, folks, we are all waiting here, for the gentle warm  weather, but now tornados are happening too !!  Beware.  The Government ought to be preparing for foul weather too, don't you think so ???  But it can barely handle small destruction.   We have to be wondering...  what does the Gov't do with all their time in office -- besides attend parties with pretty, young girls, and boys...hummmm, and "rubber-stamping Congress t hat covers Obama's goofy, mistakes in office, that hurt, rather than heal our economy.     

Having Worked at Unilevers Premier Margarine Factory in the UK for 1 Year, as a Management Trainee, and then in Sri Lanka Managing Margarine Manufacture, I can safely admit that what you are about to read is true !!

Pass The Butter ... Please.

This is interesting
. .. .

was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back.

It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavourings....

The difference between margarine and butter?

Read on to the end...gets very interesting!

Both have the same amount of calories.

Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams; compared to 5 grams for margarine.

can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.

butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods.

Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few and only because they are added!

tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of other foods.

has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years.

And now, for Margarine..

Very High in Trans
fatty acids.

Triples risk of coronary
heart disease ...

Increases total cholesterol
and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)

Increases the risk of cancers up to five times..

Lowers quality of
breast milk

Decreases immune response.

insulin response.

And here's the most disturbing fact... HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!

is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC... and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT

These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).

Open a tub of margarine and leave it open in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will notice a couple of things:

* no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)

* it does not rot or smell differently because it has
nonutritional value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not a find a home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic . Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?

Share This With Your Friends.....(If you want to butter them up')!

When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.

Yep, - she really said it on Thursday in a meeting in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee... and the quote below from the LA Times is priceless. Sometimes even the L.A. Times gets it right.

Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times:
"Frankly, I don't know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office.   I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close.   When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we're Number One. 
There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth'.   The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab.  You don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words."

"I stand with Cliven Bundy."

Tom's Journal.

Thanks to my pretty cousin,  Wanda Jane B., who lives and works in Hays, Kansas, the beautiful State where my father was born and raised, on a beef and wheat farm not to far away from Hays, KS., Liebenthal, KS.,   which means in German:  "Valley of Love."     I have been there many times, and have hundreds of cousins living near by with my last name....  as we are 4th Generation, German-Americans, hard working, loyal people, many of whom have served and fought in America's Military;   We have totally merged with American society, learned the English language well,  culture, higher education, and voted our conscience.   But we still retain our History, Heritage, Folk Lore and Culture, also the beautiful German language, as best we can.  Our men are very tall and handsome, and the girls are drop dead beautiful, many with blue eyes !!     Five of my Dad's brothers joined the Army, and he joined the Navy.   One of my favorite uncles was my dearly departed Uncle John Schuckman, who served in the Army, and was gravely wounded in Korea. What a kind, gentle, intelligent gentleman...     We also know our family history that goes back to the 'Old Country' --Northern Europe, etc., and are so happy to be here in the USA, WHERE WE STILL HAVE SOME FREEDOM !!  But who knows how long....  and we must put all of our Faith and Trust in Jesus Christ, and the  promises and prophecies of the KJV Bible !  Not the sons of mortal men....   sorry.
      Thank You, Wanda !!   And God bless your pea pickin' heart !   {smile}

I stand with Cliven Bundy

By Trent Loos
I must start by saying I am greatly disappointed with many fellow cattlemen in the past couple of weeks in their failing to understand the situation that has been unfolding in Nevada with the Bundy family. I fully expect non-farm folks to have a hard time grasping what has been happening, but the number of fellow cattlemen that say he is a jerk and should just pay his fees seems to be a result of their needing to spend a little more time researching the facts.
First of all and most importantly, the Cliven Bundy family has been grazing government-owned land since 1877. As a result of the early pioneers seeking an opportunity and thanks to the Homestead Act 0f 1862, a few ranchers made the voyage and claimed land near water supplies. When that was all said and done the Nevada desert had about 10 percent claimed and the balance fell back to the state.
The state of Nevada, like other Western states back in the day, contacted the homesteaders and asked them to manage their portion of the land in exchange for grazing rights. That was a win-win for everyone and the ranchers were able to invest a great deal of time and labor and turn a seemingly vast wasteland into something that could actually produce food, fiber, fuel and pharmaceuticals.
In doing some cowboy math, if you were to remove 100 percent of the number of cattle that could graze all of the federal lands today, it would reduce the number of protein-based meals produced domestically by 110 million annually.
Fast forward to today with the modern pressures from a loud vocal minority that hates the cow and has used every angle possible to remove the cattle and ranchers from federal lands. They cannot do it legally so they have invented methods by which to get it done—primarily the Endangered Species Act.
Cliven Bundy’s stand has always been that the government has not lived up to their end of the deal they made with his family. The federal government continues to find every means possible to reduce the animal unit months Bundy and all federal lands ranchers have, often without any advance notice.
I am not sure what more proof you need than simply knowing the fact that at one time Clark County, Nev., had 52 ranchers with grazing permits and today it has one. The Bundys are the lone survivors and have been shouting at the top of their lungs trying to educate people about this travesty for 20 years. They may have finally found a way to get people’s attention.
It is the hypocrisy that really needs to be brought to the forefront here. The Bundys have been continually reduced in the number of grazing animals they may have on the range because allegedly the cattle pose a risk to the native habitat for the desert tortoise and 2,000 other endangered species.
Yet the oil companies are expanding. Documents from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology show significant exploratory drilling being conducted in precisely the same area where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870s.
In addition to oil recovery, it recently came to light that Sen. Harry Reid has ties to a Chinese-owned energy company called ENN Energy Group. ENN Energy, through its lead attorney Rory Reid, son of Sen Harry Reid, has its eyes set on building a solar farm on the same land where Bundy’s cattle now run.
So why is it that cattle are a danger to the habitat and must be removed when other personal interests that fill the pockets of the politically connected seem to be expanding?
For those of you who think this is only a Western grazing lands thing that doesn’t affect the rest of the country, it’s time to wake up. In 1862 Abraham Lincoln told pioneers that if they take the land and make it productive, the government will deed it to them through the Homestead Act. If the government can renege on federal lands grazing rights because they have a better uses for the land, how safe is your deed?
Finally, need I remind you that they are already started implementing these same strategies against private property land owners, or have you not heard about government control of water puddles, the black-footed ferret and the lesser prairie-chicken? It’s time to take a stand before there is nobody left to stand with you!

HAPPY New Year, America !

Tom's Journal.

The First Three Months!

Happy New Year, America
Here is what happened on January 1st 2014:
Top Income Tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%
Top Income Payroll Tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%
Capital Gains Tax went from 15 % to 28%
Dividend Tax went from 15% to 39.6%
Estate Tax went from 0% to 55%
Remember this 'fact;'  if you have any money, the Democrats want it!  All these taxes were passed with only Democrat votes.  Not one Republican voted to do these taxes.  Remember this come election time.  And make sure your friends and neighbors know this info too! 
These taxes were all passed under the affordable care act, otherwise known as Obama care
Hello Friends,
Isn't the above news encouraging ??  Ha!  And I can tell you all from careful study that this will just be the BEGINNING of "good things to come our way" in the good, old, USA!!   Yes, friends,   there really is a common sense of foreboding in the air, even by the Democrats and Independents this early Spring, with not much to look forward to...  unless you are a Bible smart Christian, and that excludes perhaps the majority of so-called CHINO's [Christians in name only], who go to church but just sit there and have their 'ears tickled' as mentioned in Timothy from the apostle Paul.   Hint:  If you get along with everyone, especially the Gov't, and the WH, and Homeland Security, etc.,  you probably are not a real Christian...  sorry.  Because, in the 'Last Days' "Perilous times shall come..."  Just read the entire chapter of 2nd Timothy 3,  but pay attention to verse, 12, "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution."    Yes, dear friends, we are just starting to realize this now, and even in the USA !!   There is a war against the God of the Bible !!  
I suppose that too many of my Blog followers and buddies are growing weary/ tired of me repeating myself about the 'Last Days' of this wicked system of things,  but the fact is that the Rapture COULD come now and any time... POOF !   That is another reason why STD [Satan the Devil] is so active, like a hungry lion now !   He already misleads the entire inhabited Earth,  but true Christians are his main, primary target.   Lord knows that he  pounds on me too, so I must pray hard all the more !   Some of us almost wish that this business was all over, or that we were dead... sorry.  But that would be the cowardly way out --- and we ARE Soldiers of Christ.  We must continue to tough it out.    But helping other brothers and sisters whom we see struggling is a fine, honorable thing to do.   I have been doing just that for a number of years, and now I could use a helping hand and more encouragement.   Because we older guys are fighting a number of battles at the same time.  One with our flesh, our broken down bodies, temptation,  perhaps with our wayward spouses, who may not be Christians, or show lack of it.   Just like,  some wives and husbands hate to even crack open the KJV Bible and study as a family !!!   Personally,  I feel that the Lord blessed me with a lot of talent, knowledge and experience, plus the Holy Spirit,  and to just remain silent without anyone to teach and help is a slight and a disservice to me.   That is how I feel right now!   How ever,  I dare not hang my dirty laundry out in public....  I guess that, if I keep my nose clean and pray about this long enough, the Lord will bring someone my way, so I can share [NOT show off] my "gifts."  
And again, only to bear witness to the truth of the Scriptures,  our God has "allowed" Obama to rise to power, believe it or not, for a specific reason !!   Prophecy MUST be fulfilled and God must be found true.  Well respected writers and scholars agree with me,  that the USA/ America is never mentioned in the whole Bible, and so it is very likely that we will be a 3rd world nation, if we still exist at all !   We will be bankrupt soon, and with that all the other nations will have trouble economically too, because our combined economies are all "inter-linked" and dependent on each other, at least to a certain extent.   Our money is devalued, and it will get much worse, I predict, in months...  not years !   In a few days I will know more.   And all the promises about Obama-care were bogus from the start, and it was never about HEALTH...  but CONTROL and POWER over the people !!!   And when the people finally wake up, it will be too late.  
The point that I need and want to make with this post, is:   I hope that the Freedom Movement of true Patriots can and will make a difference in our lives this Spring and Summer, and I will also help as much as I can.   Just remember that God is going to have things His way in the end,  because His Word says that,   "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night;  in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up."  ~2nd Peter 3: 10.   Verse 11:  "Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness....."   WE  can and should KNOW for sure that WE are going to heaven !!   Sometimes I have a skull harder than a field stone from Wisconsin... lol.   But I am blessed with an understanding... especially AFTER I ask God to give me insight, or someone on the same wave length as me counsels me, and finally one day later, it kicks in, and I 'see the light !'  
       A friend stopped by today to visit and encourage me, and I listened to him [even though he may have thought that I wasn't...], and now it's just beginning to make sense!   I am kind of 'trapped' up here where I live now, and not the happiest man, but now I realize [I pray] that the time is so short, that I may as well hunker down, and stay where I am, enjoying some of the fruits of MY investments and labor.  
Today, and yesterday, I was suffering from a hurt, strained back, and could not get much done.  And the weather went back to Winter mode for a few days again, spoiling my plans to ride my new 650 Kaw dirt bike.   Oh well...   Some folks just love to break their anatomy with different projects, thinking that they are some how "SINNING"  if they take it easy and relax in their latter years.    I was blessed to work my anatomy to the bone ALL MY LIFE, and retired with full pension at age 54, besides being DISABLED at the same time.   I did not plan things that way, but it could be worse,  you know !  I use this time, my blessed retirement to write, blog, study, read, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.   I also pay all of our bills, on time, invest some $$$, and just live a quiet life of dignity, if I can.
More Latter,
Tom Schuckman
God Bless All Believers !
