- Ok, folks - Now this is beginning to get serious. The
death level in Mexico has ratcheted to over 80, per two-day-old news, and
I've just received a report of an outbreak in New York (not in the article
below, which is noteworthy for discussing the various alert levels). This
would be a good time to go to the store and stock up for a self-quarantine
in your home of up to a month or so.
- If this blossoms beyond what already has occurred in
California, Texas and, now, New York, I'm pulling up my own drawbridge
for the duration.
- If I lived in California or any state bordering Mexico
(or metro NY, from which there now is an unsubstantiated
outbreak report), I already would be back from the store with my supplies
and would have closed the front door for the duration.
- For what it's worth: An hour ago, I received an email
purporting to be from a doctor at a Mexico City hospital, who claimed that
things there are much worse than being reported, with thousands already
- Maybe this will blow over by early next week or
maybe we will see it mushroom.
- Whether this is the pandemic I have forecast for many
years (read my book) or not, rest assured that it is coming. If not now,
then later this year or next year. Mark my words well. I have been wrong
about very little in what I have forecast for America in recent years,
a forecast made before the good times peaked, even. What should concern
you, though, is not about what I have been right so far, but what
I have forecast for the coming months and years.
- The timing is right for an engineered disease pandemic
just like what Dick Cheney repeatedly promised for us, not to mention a
world war. Mexico is on the verge of collapsing into a 5-drug-cartel ruling
junta "government" and the American dollar is on its very last
legs. There is an anti-government movement spreading across America (witness
today's "Audit the Fed" demonstrations).
- Precious metals, especially silver stocks (especially
CDE, which I recently recommended at about .60 and which now is over
double that), surged dramatically on Thursday and Friday. Tomorrow
night's overseas markets should foreshadow what will happen on Wall Street
Monday morning and that likely will tell us all we need to know about just
how serious this might become.
- You may feel that ignoring market dynamics is ok because
you have no investments, but remember that economics and general society
are just two sides of the same coin, with economics being the far
