STATISTICIAN: DATA PROVES BIBLICAL FINANCIAL COLLAPSE
'In September, we can expect something really bad'
Published: September 1, 2015
Get ready – because the best of times are over and the worst of times may have just begun.
is the assessment of an Israeli mathematician who has studied the biblical Shemitah cycle as it applies to the financial markets.
Thomas Pound is an educator and mathematician who applies his statistical wizardry to the markets.
The Dow fell
another 468 points, or 3 percent, Tuesday, providing fresh evidence for investors the sell-off which began in August was no mirage. It is likely to continue in September.
Only eight more trading days remain until the dreaded Elul 29, which is the final
day of the Shemitah year, known as “wipe out day” on the Hebrew calendar.
Since Elul 29 falls on a Sunday, Sept. 13, when the markets are closed, the rest of this week and the following week could bring the most devastating losses. Another
theory is that the period of Sept. 14-28 right after Elul 29 and leading up to a scheduled blood moon (on Sept. 27-28) could be worth watching.
Proof in the numbers
Several years ago, Pound corresponded with a financial adviser
who was using a decennial analysis to determine which years were optimum for investor returns. According to the theory behind decennial analysis, which was first proposed in the book “Irrational Exuberance” by Yale Economics professor Robert Shiller,
years ending in the number eight yielded better returns than other years, according to the Israeli publication Breaking Israel News. Years that ending in seven were less lucrative.
Armed with 144 years of market data going back to 1871, Pound set out
to test the validity of this theory. As Pound explained to Breaking Israel News, “Being a statistician, if somebody makes a claim, then statistically, it should hold up.”
Using the Analysis of Variance significance (ANOVA) test, Pound discovered
there was some basis for the financial adviser’s strategy of avoiding investing in years that ended in seven. It gave him a statistical advantage of 100 base points, with years not ending in seven averaging an annual return of 10.19 percent, compared
to an overall average of 9.04 percent.
Now comes Jonathan Cahn’s New York Times-best selling book about the Shemitah cycle – “The Mystery of the Shemitah” – and Pound was again challenged to study Cahn’s research
from a statistical perspective to see if it had merit.
The Shemitah year falls every seventh year, when God instructed Moses to let the land rest, cease sowing and reaping, and then all Israelites were to have their debts canceled on the final day of
the year, Elul 29.
Cahn pointed out that the years 1973, 1980, 1987, 2001 and 2008 were all Shemitah years that saw stock markets collapse.
The biggest ever single-day stock market crash occurred on Sept. 29, 2008, when the Dow fell 777.7 points
and lost $1.2 trillion in value. This day also happened to be Elul 29, the last day of the Jewish year, one day before Rosh Hashana, signaling the end of the Shemitah cycle.
After a friend told him about the seven-year Sabbatical cycle to the stock
market, Pound again set out to see if the theory held up under statistical scrutiny.
Applying the same ANOVA test to the Shemitah cycle, Pound’s research revealed that the sabbatical years were the only group of years in which the market cycle
averages consistent significant losses since 1871.
He also found that, in Shemitah years, the difference in loss was greater than that noted in professor Shiller’s decennial cycle.
“Statistically, it appears that the calendar years
in which the Sabbatical year ends are worse than the other six years, and that difference is significant based on the data I have,” Pound told Breaking Israel News.
Prepare for a crash
With mathematical precision, Pound
quoted King Solomon in Ecclesiastes 11:2, “Divide your portion to seven, or even to eight, for you do not know what misfortune may occur on the earth,” as practical advice to prepare for the inevitable Shemitah market crash, Breaking Israel News
The Israeli newspaper noted that “this bit of biblical wisdom advises we diversify our portfolios.”
Pound also noted the irony that, according to the decennial theory, 2015 should be one of the better years for investing
in the stock market. But not so, according to the Shemitah theory. As Pound told Breaking Israel News, “In September, we can expect something really bad.”
Some who have studied and scrutinized Cahn’s research in America are even more
dramatic in their advice to investors.
Michael Snyder, author of the blog Economic Collapse, wrote in an Aug. 31 entry:
“All of the intel that I have received is absolutely screaming that big trouble is ahead. So enjoy these last few days
of relative peace and quiet. I mean that sincerely. In fact, that is exactly what I have been doing – over the past week I have not been posting many articles because I was spending time with family, friends and preparing for the national call to prayer
on September 18th and 19th. But now as we enter the chaotic month of September 2015 I have a feeling that there is going to be plenty for me to write about.”
Snyder pointed out that Augusts are typically not bad months for the stock market. But
when bad Augusts do occur, they are almost always followed by a September that is just as bad.
“Throughout history, there have only been 11 times when the S&P 500 has declined by more than 5 percent during the month of August,” Snyder
wrote. “When that has happened, the stock market has almost always fallen in September as well.”
The stock market has already plummeted 14 percent over the last month.
John Hussman, author of Hussman’s weekly financial letter,
wrote in an Aug. 30 entry that he sees the Dow falling by 50 percent by the time the dust settles.
Hussman urged his readers not to listen to the so-called experts brought in by networks such as CNN, CNBC and Bloomberg to calm investors’ jittery
nerves. He wrote:
“They assured their few thousand remaining viewers the 11% plunge in the stock market was caused by China and the communist government’s direct intervention in their stock market, arrest of a brokerage CEO, and threat to
prosecute sellers surely cured what ails their market. The Fed and their Plunge Protection Team co-conspirators reversed the free fall, manipulating derivatives and creating a short seller covering rally back to previous week levels. The moneyed interests
are desperate to retain the appearance of normality and stability, as their debt saturated system teeters on the verge of collapse.”
Hussman, in fact, sees a down market for the next 18 months as it gradually falls in line with the down economy
of Barack Obama.
“John Hussman’s weekly letter provides sound advice for anyone looking to avoid a 50% loss in the next 18 months. The market has been overvalued for the last three years and now sits at overvaluation levels on par with 1929
and 2000. The difference is that fear has been overtaking greed in the psyches of traders. The average Joe isn’t in the market. Only the Ivy League MBA High frequency trading computer gurus are playing in this rigged market. The 1,100 point crash last
Monday is what happens when arrogant young traders, fear and computer algorithms combine in a perfect storm of mindless selling. Suddenly the pompous risk takers became frightened risk averse lemmings.”

The 2030 Agenda: This Month The
UN Launches A Blueprint For A New World Order With The Help Of The Pope
Sep 3, 2015
(RINF) – Did you know that the UN is planning to launch a “new universal agenda” for humanity in September 2015? That phrase does not come from me – it is actually right
in the very first paragraph of the official document that every UN member nation will formally approve at a conference later this month. The entire planet is going to be committing to work toward 17 sustainable development goals and 169 specific sustainable
development targets, and yet there has been almost a total media blackout about this here in the United States. The UN document promises that this plan will “transform our world for the better by 2030“, and yet very few Americans have even heard
of the 2030 Agenda at this point. Instead, most of us seem to be totally obsessed with the latest celebrity gossip or the latest nasty insults that our puppet politicians have been throwing around at one another. It absolutely amazes me that more people cannot
understand that Agenda 2030 is a really, really big deal. When will people finally start waking up?
As I discussed in a previous article, the 2030 Agenda is taking the principles and goals laid out in Agenda 21 to an entirely new level. Agenda 21 was
primarily focused on the environment, but the 2030 Agenda addresses virtually all areas of human activity. It truly is a blueprint for global governance.
And later this month, nearly every nation on the entire planet is going to be signing up for this
new agenda. The general population of the planet is going to be told that this agenda is “voluntary” and that it is all about “ending poverty” and “fighting climate change”, but that is not the full story. Unfortunately,
there is so much positive spin around this plan that most people will not be able to see through it. Just check out an excerpt from a piece that was published on the official UN website yesterday…
The United Nations General Assembly today
approved a resolution sending the draft ‘2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’ to Member States for adoption later this month, bringing the international community “to the cusp of decisions that can help realize the… dream of a
world of peace and dignity for all,” according to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
“Today is the start of a new era. We have travelled a long way together to reach this turning point,” declared Mr. Ban, recounting the path the
international community has taken over the 15 years since the adoption of the landmark Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) towards crafting a set of new, post-2015 sustainability goals that will aim to ensure the long-term well-being of our planet and its
With world leaders expected to adopt the text at a 25-27 September summit in New York, the UN chief said Agenda 2030 aims high, seeking to put people at the centre of development; foster human well-being, prosperity, peace and justice
on a healthy planet and pursue respect for the human rights of all people and gender equality.
Who doesn’t “dream of a world of peace and dignity for all”?
They make it all sound so wonderful and non-threatening.
make it sound like we are about to enter a global utopia in which poverty and inequality will finally be eradicated. This is from the preamble of the official 2030 Agenda document…
This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity.
It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognise that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development.
All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan. We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative
steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which we are announcing today
demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda.
If it is a “universal agenda”, then where does that leave those that do not want to be part of it?
How will they assure that “no one will be left behind”
if there are some nations or groups that are not willing to go along with their plan?
The heart of the 2030 Agenda is a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals…
Goal 1 End poverty in all its forms everywhere
2 End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Goal 3 Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
Goal 4 Ensure inclusive and equitable
quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
Goal 5 Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
Goal 6 Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation
Goal 7 Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
Goal 8 Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work
Goal 9 Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Goal 10 Reduce inequality within and among countries
Goal 11 Make
cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Goal 12 Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
Goal 13 Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts*
Goal 14 Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
Goal 15 Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat
desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
Goal 16 Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive
institutions at all levels
Goal 17 Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development
Once again, many of those sound quite good.
But what do many of those buzzwords
actually mean to the elite?
For instance, what does “sustainable development” actually mean, and how does the UN plan to ensure that it will be achieved globally?
This is something that was discussed in a recent WND article…
But what is “sustainable development?”
Patrick Wood, an economist and author of “Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation,” says it’s clear the U.N. and its supporters see sustainable
development as more than just the way to a cleaner environment. They see it as the vehicle for creating a long-sought new international economic order, or “New World Order.”
Wood’s new book traces the modern technocracy movement
to Zbigniew Brzezinski, David Rockefeller and the Trilateral Commission in the early 1970s.
And Wood is quite correct. The environment is a perfect vehicle for the elite to use to bring in their version of utopia, because just about every possible
form of human activity affects the environment in some way. Ultimately, they hope to centrally plan and strictly regulate virtually everything that we do, and we will be told that it is necessary to “save the planet”.
And they will never
come out and openly call it a “New World Order” because “sustainable development” sounds so much nicer and is so much more acceptable to the general population.
Needless to say, there wouldn’t be much room for individual
liberty, freedom or good, old-fashioned capitalism in the world that the elite are trying to set up. In fact, the U.N.’s number one sustainable development official has essentially publicly admitted this…
“This is probably the
most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history,” Figueres, who heads up the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, told reporters
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for the at least
150 years, since the industrial revolution,” Figueres said.
They plan to “intentionally transform the economic development model”?
And so what will this new system look like?
How will they achieve this “utopia”
that they are promising us?
Sadly, they are just selling the same lies that have been sold to people for thousands of years. Paul McGuire, the co-author of a new book entitled “The Babylon Code: Solving the Bible’s Greatest End-Times Mystery“,
commented on this recently…
“Deep inside every man and woman is the longing for a far better world, a world without war, disease, death, and pain. Our present world is a cruel world in which every life ends in death. From the beginning
of time Mankind has sought to use science and technology to create a perfect world, what some would call Utopia or Paradise. As the Human Race began to organize itself, a Scientific or Technocratic Elite rose to power by promising the masses that they could
build this perfect world. Ancient Babylon represented the first historical attempt to build paradise on earth.”
In ancient times, Babylon was the very first attempt to create a type of “global government”, and ever since then
the global elite have been trying to recreate what Babylon started.
The promise is always the same – the elite swear that they have finally figured out how to create a perfect society without poverty or war. But in the end all of these attempts
at utopia always end up degenerating into extreme forms of tyranny.
On September 25th, the Pope is traveling to New York to give the opening address at the conference where the 2030 Agenda will be launched. He will be urging all of humanity to support
what the UN is trying to do. There are countless millions that implicitly trust the Pope, and they will buy what he is selling hook, line and sinker.
Don’t be fooled – the 2030 Agenda is a blueprint for a New World Order. Just read the document
for yourself, and imagine what our world would actually look like if they have their way.
They want to fundamentally transform our planet, and the freedom that you are enjoying today is simply not acceptable. To the elite, giving people freedom and
liberty is dangerous because they believe it hurts the environment and causes societal chaos. According to their way of thinking, the only way to have the kind of harmonious utopia that they are shooting for is to tightly regulate and control what everyone
is thinking, saying and doing. Their solutions always involve more central planning and more control in their own hands.
So what do you think?
Should we hand the global elite that kind of power and control?
If not, then we
all need to start speaking out about this insidious agenda while we still can.
