Are you getting ready for what’s coming? It’s June 1st.
The last few weeks seem to have been a “quiet” time in the Middle East, relative to the Signposts.
Rouhani won the Iranian presidential election back in mid-May, and was re-elected without fanfare or incident. Instead of having a transparent hardliner as president, the Iranian regime has decided to keep the smiley face. The regime even allowed Rouhani to tell the IRGC and Basij not to push for a conservative candidate like they did with Ahmadinejad in 2009.
This is all just for show. It makes Rouhani look like he is telling the IRGC what’s what. Right. . .
We also saw Turkish president Erdoğan in the news a few days ago when he visited Washington D.C. American demonstrators were outside the Turkish embassy when Erdoğan’s security thugs beat up Americans on American soil.
Conservative Congressman Dana Rohrbacher had something to say about Erdoğan:
“Obviously you have a fascistic megalomaniac in charge of the government of Turkey who is so consumed with his own power that he thinks he can call people together and tell us we were wrong when we see our citizens being beaten into the dirt, American dirt.”
Reading Daniel 8 would you describe the first prominent horn of the goat as a fascistic megalomaniac? I would. It seems appropriate.
“He is an enemy of everything we stand for.”
He probably doesn’t realize how true that really is.
I get the feeling a lot of the day-to-day preparation by Iran and other countries is just life for some people in the Middle East. You should be getting ready too, in your day-to-day life.
So, what have you been doing?
Have you been thinking of getting some of your wealth out of dollar-denominated assets? You know, when the Iranian invasion begins it will be too late to get out of the dollar or to switch investments. The time to leave the theater is before someone yells, “Fire!” Commodity, land and gold prices will have already shot up in paper currency terms.
Have you told your friends about the Second Signpost?
How about starting that garden, or expanding it?
Are you procrastinating? Do you realize how hard it will be to get anything once the junk hits the fan?
Personally, I’ve been concentrating on three things the last few weeks: work to pay the bills, getting the new book done (more on this soon), and our garden. Its June 1st. Rows should be overturned. Most of the seeds for your vegetable garden should be planted by now (unless you live in a cold climate). This is our third season planting. We’re figuring out which varieties work here on the Front Range. We’re developing skills.
It’s a busy time right now. It should be for you too.
This is just a reminder – do what you think you need to do, now. There may be a warning from an event like a possible Balkan war but I’m not counting on it.
Remember, the Second Signpost will not be an “armchair” event. This one will interfere with life and living.
So are you getting ready for what’s coming?
