Grab your metal detector!

For several months gold and silver jewelry, ornaments, and golden nuggets have started washing up on the shore of a small Venezuelan fishing village that had been devastated by the country’s economic crisis and COVID-19.

Yolman Lares was the first to find treasure on the beach in Guaca in September when he found a gold medallion with an image of the Virgin Mary.

“I began to shake, I cried from joy,” Lares, 25, told The New York Times. “It was the first time something special has happened to me.”

      Foreigners could still demand gold for Dollars until that date. The US wasn't able to fulfill that promise due to exploding debt caused by the Vietnam war. The French tried and sent warships to New York in order to pick up their gold. If other countries followed suit, the gold reserves would have depleted completely.
      When Nixon looked in the empty vault he knew the gig was up.
      As long as you can actually get the physical gold from the party with the printer, then the system can't just run amok, because there is always someone who will call you on your bulls#$%. Clearly it was not 100 % backed, but the system can work, as long as there isn't a run on the bank, like there was in 1971.
      In 1971 the USA was on the Bretton Woods system, USD was 40% backed by gold. This move by Nixon screwed over most European countries that traded with US.
      The USD was like holding gold, until the music stopped.
      The majority of Americans buy American made products. Fast forward 50 years literally nothing is made in America anymore
      In 1980, the US was the world’s largest exporter of finished goods and the world’s largest importer of raw materials. Now, they’re the world’s largest importer of finished goods and world’s largest exporter of raw materials.
      And now gas is $4.90 a gal in CA... Fed is still at it today with fiat money printing. Gas was .36 cents per gal 8/13/71
      Also.. FWIW: This also allowed for the unlimited funding of the Democrats Welfare State we have today. Otherwise known as Johnsons Great Society.

      This is good for the environment AND will save a few lives in the process.
      This might not be good news for gold mines somewhere in Nicaragua however. 
      I don't expect this to happen overnight though.

      They would enter orders and then cancel them before they executed. A process called "spoofing"...... 
      this would effect the pricing of the gold and silver which they would then profit on.
      Steal BILLIONS for decades.... get a fine in the millions...... = cost of doing business

      The Trump administration froze all Venezuelan government assets in a dramatic escalation of tensions with Nicolás Maduro that places his socialist administration alongside a short list of adversaries from Cuba, North Korea, Syria and Iran that have been targeted by such aggressive U.S. actions.
      The ban, blocking American companies and individuals from doing business with Maduro's government and its top supporters, took effect immediately Monday and is the first of its kind in the Western Hemisphere in more than three decades, following an asset freeze against Gen. Manuel Noriega's government in Panama and a trade embargo on the Sandinista leadership in Nicaragua in the 1980s.
      While the order falls short of an outright trade embargo — notably, it spares Venezuela's still sizable private sector — it represents the most sweeping U.S. action to remove Maduro since the Trump administration recognized opposition leader Juan Guaidó as Venezuela's rightful leader in January. Critically, it also exposes foreign entities doing business with the Maduro government to U.S. retaliation.

      La mayor parte de Venezuela se quedó sin energía desde el jueves por un masivo apagón que continúa este viernes.
      Medios locales reportaron que la pérdida de energía afectó a más de la mitad del país, mientras usuarios de redes denunciaron la falla en al menos 21 de los 23 estados de Venezuela.
      Corpoelec, la compañía eléctrica estatal, habló en su cuenta de Twitter de un "sabotaje"en central hidroeléctrica del embalse de Guri, en el este del país.
      "Hemos sido objeto nuevamente de la guerra eléctrica", aseguró el ministro de Energía Eléctrica, Luis Motta Domínguez.

      Cinco personas han fallecido por un brote de Chagas agudo en el estado Táchira, Venezuela, zona limítrofe con Colombia.

      El chinche picuda, conocido como pito o vinchuca, es el vector encargado de transmitir el parásito trypanosoma cruzi, causante de la enfermedad de Chagas.
      Las alarmas sanitarias se dispararon este domingo a causa de un nuevo brote epidemiológico en Venezuela. Se trata del mal de Chagas, una enfermedad transmitida por insectos, que ha matado a cinco personas en Puerto Nuevo, estado Táchira, Venezuela. Entre los fallecidos figuran cuatro adultos y un pequeño de once meses de edad.
      Aparte de los cinco casos fatales, otras 40 personas se encuentran en observación pues presentan los síntomas de la enfermedad: fiebre, dolor de cabeza y abdomen hinchado.Un niño de tres años tuvo que ser intervenido del corazón a causa de los fluidos que produce el mal de Chagas. 
      La gobernadora del estado de Táchira, Laidy Gómez, manifestó que se “activó un plan de atención entre todos los entes de salud, protección civil y seguridad” para proteger y atender a la comunidad de Puerto Nuevo. 
      Las autoridades sanitarias creen que los pacientes contrajeron la enfermedad por vía oral, a través de alimentos contaminados con las heces de un chinche picuda, insecto que transmite el mal de Chagas.    
      Igualmente, el viceministro de Salud y el director Nacional de Epidemiología de Venezuela le pidieron a la comunidad conservar la calma, puesto que el mal de Chagas, según ellos, no es contagioso y las autoridades competentes están buscando el origen de la enfermedad para erradicarlo.

      El mes de marzo marcará un hito para la historia de los Testigos de Jehová del estado Zulia. En este mes se cristaliza un sueño de los más de 15.000 testigos de Jehová de esa zona del país y de los más de 148.000 Testigos de Jehová de Venezuela, al finalizarse la construcción del tan anhelado Salón de Asambleas ubicado en la calle 14 o bicentenaria, del sector las 4 brocas de la parroquia Santa Rita, en el municipio Santa Rita del Edo. Zulia. Este proyecto es uno de las cientos de obras de construcción que los Testigos de Jehová llevan a cabo en 120 países.
      Este salón de Asambleas es una obra sencilla y de bajo costo que servirá como centro de educación Bíblica gratuita y beneficiará, no solo a la comunidad de Testigos de Jehová del occidente del país, sino también a miles de personas interesadas en el mensaje bíblico que puede cambiar vidas y también dará impulso a la predicación mundial de las buenas nuevas del Reino (Mateo 24:14).
      El proyecto de construcción del Salón de Asambleas de Santa Rita, tuvo una duración de 14 meses y trabajaron en él miles de voluntarios de Maracaibo, Santa Rita, Cabimas, Lagunillas, Ciudad Ojeda, Machiques, Villa del Rosario y otras partes del país, que trabajaron de manera gratuita.
      El auditorio tiene más de 800 m2 de espacio y tiene una capacidad de 1.250 asientos, quienes asistan a nuestras asambleas y programas educativos se sentirán cómodos y a gusto, lo que beneficiará el aprendizaje. El salón cuenta con edificios de servicio donde se dispusieron áreas para discapacitados y para que las madres con bebés y niños pequeños que asistan a nuestros programas de enseñanza puedan atenderlos cómodamente.
      En toda la ejecución del proyecto se hicieron grandes esfuerzos por respetar el medio ambiente, además se reforestó y se realizó un paisajismo que crea un ambiente agradable para quienes visiten las instalaciones y para los transeúntes y visitantes de la zona. Es digno de destacar que no hubo accidentes laborales durante todo este proyecto, los voluntarios se esmeraron por cumplir las normas de seguridad que protegen su vida y la de otros.

      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Otro aspecto que resaltar es el hecho de que los trabajadores voluntarios fueron mujeres en su gran mayoría, algunas sin experiencia previa en construcción y que fueron adiestradas y preparadas para trabajar, y en poco tiempo atendieron las diferentes facetas de construcción, incluso albañilería y herrería, labores que generalmente efectúan hombres. Ellas son parte de los más de 11.000 Testigos de Jehová quienes dejan su hogar para participar en estas obras y dan con gusto y sin pedir nada a cambio de sus energías y habilidades. Diego García, uno de estos voluntarios menciona: “La razón por la que mi esposa y yo apoyamos este proyecto, es porque consideramos que es una forma de prestar servicio y adoración a Jehová Dios, además, el espíritu de unidad que reina entre todos los que participamos crea un ambiente de trabajo agradable donde todos se tratan con respeto, nadie dice malas palabras y cada uno cuida la seguridad propia y la de sus compañeros”.
      A partir del mes de Junio iniciaremos nuestros programas de enseñanza, comenzando con la serie de Asambleas Regionales de 2.018 titulada “Sea Valiente”, deseamos que pueda acompañarnos y beneficiarse del programa de enseñanza Bíblica gratuita en estas nuevas instalaciones.

      My dear brothers, we are going to help our people who are having a bad time, especially in matters of medicine.
      Last year's experience taught us several things. We already have an old man from Ciudad Bolivar who offers to receive medicines and who is in charge of distributing them to the needy. We will give the information of this brother in private to those who send me a message that they want to send help.
      Small packages by Mail came very well to the brother who received them last year. Any cleaning product can be put into the package and if they ask to specify the contents of the package, we will put on the TOILET ARTICLE, although they also carry medicines. It was also good to send through door-door system agencies, which does not pass through customs.
      It is evident that we can not send all the medicines for all diseases, so we will limit ourselves to the most urgent ones, such as hypertension or painkillers such as Buscopan or Aspirin.
      The brother tells us;
      "good idea to help us, if you need hypertensive, antibiotics, here in Bolivar we have a strong outbreak of malaria and facial treatment is not obtained, it is also needed for depression and for mental problems such as clonazepam rivotril sertralina, there is a sister You need more Buscopan Plus for pain, we appreciate the help you can give us "
      Many brothers and sisters are already asking for information like this sister: "Hello brother Jose I would like to send to the brothers of Venezuela clothes for children and coats If you have the address where you can send please give it to me and also if you know of some means of doing it other than the mail Thank you brother I live in California "
      Brothers and sisters, this is a drop in the ocean of the needs of our people in a country where humanitarian aid is impeded. DO NOT SEND MONEY, that   does not arrive.
      If there are any responsible brothers such as elders or ministers who offer to receive this help, they should tell me urgently and everything will be done in private.

      Bitcoin was developed to replace the current banking system which has failed most of humankind.
      Its growth is almost exponential and it will soon threaten the US dollar and gold as the International Reserve currency of choice.
      How much longer until the prophecy at Ezekiel 7 is fulfilled where it says:
      19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity. Another version says:
      “‘They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will become abhorrent to them...."
      Some might ponder whether the rising growth of Bitcoin can be seen as a barometer for the proximity of Armageddon?

      This tragic story has been developing over the last couple of days in Venezuela. There is a mixture of reports and accounts coming in....
      Two Jehovah's Witnesses (and fleshly sisters) aged 71 and 65, where found murdered. A 26 year male suspect has been arrested.
      In the apartment where the two where found dead, the words "Death to witnesses" (“Muerte a los testigos”) had been scrawled onto one of the walls.

      Con signos de violencia. Así fueron hallados, dentro de su apartamento, los cadáveres de dos hermanas en Ocumare del Tuy, estado Miranda.
      Tenían más de dos días sin ser vistas y los vecinos, junto a los miembros de una iglesia de Testigos de Jehová, a donde acudían las mujeres, se alarmaron. Para entrar al apartamento, bomberos debiero derribar la puerta principal del apartamento ubicado en el edificio 4 de la urbanización Cristóbal Rojas, mejor conocida como Parosca.
      Las vícimas fueron identificadas como    Milta Mireya Joseph Best, de 71 años, y Cecilia Josefina Joseph (65). La policía estimó una data de muerte de 48 horas.
      Medios capitalinos reseñaron ayer: la ausencia de las mujeres en la iglesia donde se congregaban como Testigos de Jehová alertó a sus hermanos de religión, quienes acudieron hasta su residencia, tocaron la puerta, pero nadie les respondió. Luego, conversaron con algunos vecinos y estos les informaron que tenían dos días sin verlas, así que dieron parte a las autoridades.
      Una comisión de la Policía Municipal de Lander acudió al sitio, de donde salía un fuerte olor. Bomberos mirandinos forzaron la reja para entrar al inmueble, en cuyo interior localizaron a las dos hermanas muertas y con signos de violencia.
      Una de las fallecidas quedó, en la sala, sobre una silla de plástico blanca, con las manos atadas. La otra fue hallada en una habitación. Ambas tenían contusiones y signos de estrangulamiento.  
      Vecinos y allegados a las víctimas repudiaron el doble homicidio. El Cicpc acudió al lugar y adelanta las indagatorias para determinar el móvil del hecho.
      La noche del domingo se informó que el Cicpc y Polilander detuvieron a tres hombres implicados en el asesinato de las dos hermanas de la urbanización  Parosca.

      Venezuela: “We Swear We Were Gonna Pay You Back”
      It’s always fun and games until one country decides to miss a $200 million loan payment. Heavily-indebted, inflation-riddled Venezuela has officially defaulted on the first of (what should be) many loan payments.
      What went wrong? Well, it’s hard to pay off $60 billion in IOUs to bondholders with only $9 billion left in the bank. That, and the fact Venezuela's already late on $420 million worth of payments. 
      If you’re looking to point the finger at someone, aim it at President Maduro(labeled a “dictator” by the Trump administration) and his drug-slinging partner-in-crime, Vice President Tareck El Aissami. Together, they’ve shown little promise of reviving the nation. Look no further than Monday’s debt restructuring meeting, where international investors didn’t get the plan they had hoped for (or any at all)...but they did get some chocolate.
      Altogether, Venezuela holds $150 billion in sovereign debt. And with this latest default, you better believe investors are flashing back to 2012...when Greece shocked the world, defaulting on over $200 billion.

    • the Sower of Seed

      Daniel 12:6 Jehovah sends an angel to ask another angel: “How long will it be to the end of these marvelous things?” The other angel "the man clothed in linen" is inspired by Jehovah, raises both hands to Heaven and answers twice! One at verse 7, then verses 11 & 12. Just as the angel raises both hands to Heaven, there are 2 fulfillments, there are 2 beasts, the first dies, but rises again with greater power today. This who Jesus spoke about at Matthew 24: 15 “Therefore, when you catch sight of the disgusting thing that causes desolation, as spoken about by Daniel the prophet, standing in a holy place (let the reader use discernment). 
      Today we can use discernment as we see the dashing to pieces of the “power” of the holy ones in the hindrance of the “public” ministry caused by Covid19. We will see a greater attack on that ministry of Spiritual Israel under the rule of the King of the South as the world turns on religion. 
      Jesus stated that no man knows the day or hour, that was true then, because only Jehovah knew how long He gave Satan to prove his point. Only Jehovah could look into the last days and see when the constant feature would stop, the days are counted from then until the first day people will enjoy true happiness. This is the most important day to live for.
      John 4:23 states "Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshippers will worship the Father with spirit and truth, for indeed, the Father is looking for ones like these to worship him." Why is God having to search for "True Worshippers"? Because the world is almost all "False Worshippers", denied understanding as stated at Daniel 12:10.  It's amazing how He has hidden the truth from minds, religions formed before the last days were formed without all the facts, even though they could read it over and over, because of their heart’s inclination, He has hidden the facts from them. How the primary resurrection will occur on Earth, that the land would be apportioned out to those choosing to live as a subject of the sovereignty of the Almighty God Jehovah. 
      Jehovah longs to talk with His friends of old like Noah, Abraham, David as well as Daniel. Daniel has seen Michael/Jesus stand up and the start of the resurrection which will benefit him, how he will stand up for his lot. verse 13. God has promised them the "Promised Land", a greater land then the small area of Israel, the whole planet will become a blessed restoration of the Edenic starting place. Matthew 19:28 Jesus said to them: “Truly I say to you, in the re-creation, when the Son of man sits down on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will sit on 12 thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Israel. Consider too Acts 3:21 "Heaven must hold this one within itself until the times of restoration of all things of which God spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets of old." The true reward that so many have hoped for now has a starting date!    
      If you have given your life to Jehovah and enjoy a relationship with Him, Read and Meditate on Daniel 12, pray for insight and understanding, for knowledge, wisdom, for faith and integrity for the days ahead!  For whether we live or die, we belong to Jehovah and will enjoy our lot just like Daniel.
