Convergence, Part II Now Bearing Down On Us All …

A few weeks ago, I told you the war cycles were ramping up again, and dramatically — based on my Artificial Intelligence models and true adaptive deep learning neural net.

A learning neural net sees patterns in events and data that we can’t possibly see and it also gives a weighting to the unintended consequences of leaders all over the world who never, ever learn from the past and instead are almost infinitely doomed to making the same mistakes, over and over again.

Since I predicted another and accelerated rise in geo-political stress, look what’s happened …

— A phone call between President-elect Trump and Taiwan President Tsai stunned world leaders. The call was out of protocol, a big no-no for China and U.S. policy.

The reverberations — and possible punishment against President-elect Trump — are still being discussed by global leaders, especially in Beijing.

— Then Beijing seizes a U.S. underwater drone, a harmless type of submarine satellite designed to monitor what’s going on in the Spratly Islands and South China Sea.

Analyst Watching The Convergence Bearing Down On Us All
A learning neural net sees patterns in events and data that we can’t possibly see

On this one, I can’t really blame Beijing. It’s in a territorial dispute involving as much as 800 billion barrels of crude oil and it claims the region belongs to China. Sources tell me that historically, Beijing is correct and that the region is China’s.

Involved in the dispute are the countries of the Philippines, Vietnam, the Nation of Brunei, the People’s Republic of China, the Republic of China (Taiwan), and Malaysia.

And they all want a (big) piece since the waters and islands in the South China Sea contain the most important shipping routes in the world, not to mention that huge amount of crude oil — 800 billion barrels of crude — more oil than is in all of Kuwait.

— Yesterday, an assassin takes out a Russian diplomat at his Moscow home. Motive unknown.

— Obama claims he has proof Russia hacked the elections and swayed the results toward Trump. In the strongest language I’ve ever heard from him, he says Washington will retaliate.

— Then there’s yesterday’s brutal attack in Berlin where 12 people were killed and dozens more were injured after a large truck plowed into a Christmas market in Berlin. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.

And more …

— Including new protests in Greece, in Italy and other European countries … over austerity measures, pension slashing, capital controls and …

Yes — even confiscation of gold by revenue agents going door to door in India.

— Then there’s Australia banning the Aussie 100 dollar note another move toward a digital, cashless society.

— And an estimated 470,000 deaths, including 15,948 children and over 10,000 women in Aleppo and the Syrian war.

And let’s not forget the worst sovereign bond market collapse in 26 years … and the strongest U.S. dollar in 14.

Why is this happening?

Because the most important economic and social/cultural SuperCycles are converging again — in a maelstrom — for the first time in at least 80 years.

For now, it’s striking mostly overseas, giving you precious little time to protect and grow your wealth right now.

Later, it will hit the U.S. hard … and you will indeed have multiple opportunities to protect and grow your wealth. Unlike billions of other investors who will sadly get wiped out.

My team, myself and my Artificial Intelligence, neural net, deep machine learning models are on top of it.

    Larry, I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your advice and work work to get the deep meaning of world events. That said, I hope you will let us subscribers know how to move our investments to take full advantage of unfolding events. To that end, I am here to ask you, no beg you, to let even us Gold Mining Millionaire subscribers in on your most important guidance, not just as to what to buy or not buy, but as to how to get our money out of the reach of government seizures that are all but certain to ensue the pending crash.
    Yes, I hope to make a lot of money from your advice. But it won’t be worth anything if someone comes to my door in the night like the storm troopers in India. How do I get the hell out of Dodge before the bandits come for me?
    And where do I take my money to be safe? Thailand? That seems to be your choice. But will Panama be just as good? Or Ecuador? Or Chile? I really need advice on how to KEEP the money we will make together.

    Larry,
    We have been reading about War cycles for almost a year. I am not investing in any Blue chip stocks as everyone is pointing to an adjustment in the market including you. Yet everyone is jumping into the Market feet first. You have shown us on your shock wave curve, that we are in a sharp downward decline economically, yet in the next 2-5 years you predict after an adjustment in the market we take off to Dow 31,000+ and gold could go up to $5K or more. How can we be in a downward Shockwave as you have illustrated to all of us and there is a 31,000+ DOW on the way soon? – These are conflicting concepts. I am confused. Can you please shed some light on this one Larry? Thank you.

      They are not conflicting if you understand history and how flight capital moves into the deepest markets that are deemed the safest. Are bonds safe now? Heck no. Is real estate safe. Some, but it’s very regional and credit is hard to get. Are commodities safe? Not yet, but they will soon become the next major sector to boom.

      Capital is like a game of hot potatoes. It is ALWAYS looking for the safest place to park itself. Historically, during depressions, that was the stock market and it’s happening all over again. Just like I aid it would — Best, Larry
      P.S. Throw logic out the door. It will cost you a fortune. You need to study history, which I will help you do, and you need to think diifferently too. — Best, Larry

    This is not true. It is fake news. At present there is no proposal in India to restrict gold holding by individuals. Revenue agents are not going door to door in India to confiscate gold. They are confiscating gold which is unaccounted for and found during tax raids against large black money holders.

    Congress has lost control of the Fed apparently. Congress needs to get back under the US Constitution.
    Ron Paul had a plan to go back on the gold standard. When the Fed was started in 1913, 2 Cents had the buying power of 1 dollar today. To me, this is stealth taxation.

    When individuals steal wealth or print federal notes, we are arrested. When the Fed does this and Congress allows it do this, they get by with it.

    Mr Edelson, what are your comments on this?

    • Larry Edelson December 23, 2016

      A gold standard will do nothing but cause a MASSIVE depression. It has NEVER works except for very short- periods of time and has always failed. It is NOT the answer to our troubles and will simply cause a lot more trouble and pain.

      We need a new monetary system that isn’t based on debt and that is fair to all. We also need governments to agree to live within their means and if they don’t then they become a “pariah” state kicked out of the system till they straighten up their act. — Larry

    You’re wrong about GGN – they cut dividends to $0.05/month (from 0.07.) That’s still a good return from GGN levels now (near $5).
    Can they sustain these dividends? Is it still a good investment?

      A committee has been assembled to investigate the matter, meanwhile the Reserve Bank of Australia has defended the $100 note. The move against cash is spearheaded by CITI Bank, a small player in Oz and a pathetically undercapitalized, Wall Street to big to fail dinosaur. Any move against cash will only make the One Nation party even more popular, they are already spear heading a drive for the banking ‘industry’ to be investigated by a Royal Commission. The objective of this would be to reveal the underlying criminality of the fractional reserve banking system !

    Larry,
    I am a huge fan but if your friends told you that China has a historical claim to the South China Sea then they are not well informed. That would be like saying the Mexico owns the Gulf of Mexico or the California owns the Gulf of California, which by the way is entirely with Mexico. Historical claims, yes the American Indians own all of America, are forfeited by international treaties. UNCLOS ( The United Nations Conference on the Law of the Seas) aka Law of the Seas, grants countries an economic exclusionary zone (EEZ) extending 200 nautical miles (nm) from their RECOGNIZED coast. China is trying to annex by force ocean bottom over 700 nm from their coast line and have lost a ruling in the international courts over this issue.

    I am shocked that a man of your knowledge and worldly experience would give an credence to China’s claim over the sea bottom so far from their coast line.

      They have as much of a claim as the others. They all have claims, historical and documented. I do not deny that nor am I a spokesperson for Beijing. I do, however, believe that China is in the best position to develop the area — assuming the geopolitics and be worked out. — Best, Larry

    Beyond their territorial waters, China has NO claim to the South China Sea. By your “historical rights” reasoning, native Americans own the entire North American Continent; goofy thinking, to be charitable. You seem committed to support of all things Chinese, but if you want me, and probably many others like me, to read your material, you will have to stop making such silly comments as “On this one, I can’t really blame Beijing”. You must realize that you are a mouthpiece for the Chinese who, obviously, want to control the entire area…which the United States must never permit.

    “On this one, I can’t really blame Beijing. It’s in a territorial dispute involving as much as 800 billion barrels of crude oil and it claims the region belongs to China. Sources tell me that historically, Beijing is correct and that the region is China’s.”

    This is total B.S. With a bachelor’s in geography and history, one can easily figure out that the territory belongs to the Philippines. Just why do you think that The Hague ruled such?

    As for “punishment”, it is China who is ready to be punished. The U.S. engaged in the war against Japan prior to WWII to help China after the “Rape of Nanking” and now China is acting like the bully of Asia. What irony. Trump is sending a message that interference with other Asian nations simply will not be tolerated. “Get out of the Spratleys” would be a good banner and first start towards respect, “sense and sensibility” and peace in the region.

    Happy Holidays Larry. You had mentioned in an earlier segment that you did that you didn’t see bitcoin as one of the electronic currencies that is going being used for any length of time, almost warning to stay away from it. However it is being taken in more and more places all the time. Now there are exchanges where you can trade bitcoin against other so called electronic/digital currencies. Do you see all of this going away or is it possible these electronic transfers (bitcoin etc) will be the newest and most logical way for us to enter into the digital currency world, and how would the government be able to intervene even if they wanted too should they become highly used?
    Thanks for all you do.

    If your market analysis is as insubstantial as your understanding of geopolitical analysis, then we indeed are in for surprises. Any beginning student in geography can easily determine that the Spratly Islands belong to the Philippines and not China. It is very ironic that while the new leadership of the U.S. complains of unfair trade deals and wants to make all more fair, China speaks of retaliation. “The robbing of Peter to pay Paul will always be supported by Paul.” (G. Bernard Shaw paraphrased)

    Furthermore, in January of 2013 the Philippines formally complained to the international courts under the UNCLOS and PCA. “On July 12, 2016, the arbitrators of the tribunal of PCA agreed unanimiously with the Philippines. They concluded in the award that there was no evidence that China had historically exercised exclusive control over the waters or resources, hence there was “no legal basis for China to claim historic rights” over the nine-dash line. Accordingly, the PCA tribunal decision is ruled as final and non-appealable by either countries. The tribunal also criticized China’s land reclamation projects and its construction of artificial islands in the Spratly Islands, saying that it had caused “severe harm to the coral reef environment”. It also characterized Taiping Island and other features of the Spratly Islands as “rocks” under UNCLOS, and therefore are not entitled to a 200 nautical mile exclusive economic zone. China however rejected the ruling, calling it “ill-founded”. Taiwan, which currently administers Taiping Island, the largest of the Spratly Islands, also rejected the ruling.” (wiki)

    The irony that China was attacked in the late 1930’s by Japan who were seeking territorial controls over lands that were not theirs, purportedly for minerals and other natural resources and the U.S. intervened to help them. Now that China is a regional power, they exert power and essentially do the same to others. Will mankind never learn?

    Truly this is one of the reasons for cycles and in that it seems that Mr. Edelson is correct, but to wrongly agree with assertions of China’s authority over territory which is not theirs is frankly quite amazing to me. Surely this should throw up question marks about other portions of his analysis.
