Signs To Watch For

February 27, 2012 by  

Dear Bob,

I am an enthusiastic reader of your information.  But I am left with frustration.  Thanks to you, I have an adequate supply of essentials including food, vitamins, gold and silver.  I am 77 years old.  I live alone and practice full time.  I am blessed with excellent health.

I have four desperately important questions:

  1. Can I feel “safe” with my retirement funds in bank holdings with Merrill Lynch?  I am not comfortable with European currencies, even Swiss, because of the turmoil in Europe.  The thought of government confiscation of my funds or having my money become worthless is terrifying.
  2. What I need is a sign of the approaching doom.  I know of nothing to watch except the banks closing their doors.  What businesses will be able to function?
  3. I have family with their homes “under water” and unable to re-finance without enormous up-front funds.  Is there any temporary safe haven to save their homes?
  4. How will we pay bills?  Especially big mortgage and insurance payments.

Bob , I am simply asking for some signs to watch for to help me sleep better and not wake up in terror.

I need a good word from the Master (YOU) before I invest in your CD- Seminar packages.  Thank you for your wonderful Christian philosophy.


Jean Alice Lord, D. C.

Dear Jean Alice Lord,

  1. I would not trust Merrill Lynch, not any kind of account with them. You might consider transferring the funds to gold stocks and taking possession of the certificates or direct registration with a transfer agent.
  2. That is a broad question, very hard to answer. However the final days of the present regime would be marked by war, serious exchange controls, serious oppression and maybe confiscation of retirement assets and possibly gold and silver.
  3. That greatly depends on how much under water they are. If they can’t refinance, it might pay them to walk and find another location.
  4. Generally speaking unless our fiat money has some value, we won’t be able to pay anything and you certainly would not want to pay it with hard assets.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes,

    good advice bob but she should go one step further. stop putting your trust in man. turn to GOD for your help. he is the only one you can trust. read you bible. either the king james verson or the new world translation . the second is easier to understand. there is comfort with GOD if you let him into your heart. man does not have the answers. he has had 6000 years since adam and eve and look where the world is today. bob is correct in saying that troubled times are coming . the bible talks about a great tribulation that we will be going thru. this is talked about in the book of mathew. that time is very close . as the bible says jesus is going to come like a thief in the night and no one knows the time or place when he will appear. you must have faith in GOD . give GOD your yoke and let him take the weight you have on your shoulders.

      God didn’t put us here to simply depend on him for everything. The lord will help those who help themselves. Let faith comfort your mind, but let your action preserve your body.

      In the Bible, when one knows what is coming, one should prepare. Look at Noah and Joseph. While it is necessary to trust in God and not man, it is an over simplification to trust in God without use of means.

    Jean needs to diversify…it’s clear all her assets are US oriented. The gov can’t take what it can’t find. She’s under the delusion that the US is on top. There are places she can go, physically & monetarily, to be safer. She doesn’t like to hear bad things about people she’s trusted (ML) for so long. She sounds afraid of change. She needs to accept that people & organizations change over time, she needs to recognize the signs (when it’s time to get out) & change her strategy accordingly.

    One sign of the end of times will be the obliteration of the value of money due to inflation. The less it is worth, the closer you are to everything going down. Another sign is when politicians (including the President) are allowed to set up private military units of hand-picked people and the court system allowing these people to commit what are otherwise crimes without a word of reproach.

    One sort of safe place for your money (American dollars) is the Bahamas. You can bet most politicians have their money there.

      she needs to read ezekiel 7;19. you can run but you can’t hide.

      I think you will end up with only what you have on hand, physical metals and resources. They have a way of getting to the offshore stuff and they (govt) controls how it comes and goes from central bank to central bank via the SWIFT system. Mines will be nationalized, windfall profit taxes will decimate some companies, pensions are being plundered as we speak, etc. The Govt is running out of time and money. They will plunder what ever they can. Keep it at home, shot straight, store food, get out of the cities.

    It all depends how long you want to live..Everybody is going to die sometime. We have lived in the best of times now prepare for the worse of times or you can just say check please if you catch my drift….

    When Bob said that he would never trust any type of account with Merrill Lynch he gave you invaluable advice! Take heed!
    Merrill Lynch doesn’t care whether or not it’s clients make money — the only thing they care about is their own and the commissions YOUR money generates for them!
    If you think they were such experts at investing, whey did they have to be bailed out by the Government…who, in turn, palmed them off to Bank of America…!!
    These are the very same people who are supposed to be such experts and they couldn’t even manage and save their own ASSets…!

    If I could I would leave America and start a new life in Australia OR New Zealand. It’s only a matter of time, America is rotting on the vine!

    you people can’t be really serious? walk away from your home? walk away from your financial obligation and put it into god? are you kidding me? god gives us tools and sometimes people are too stupid to realize that they are living in the one place god has blessed them with. sticking it to the “man”? sorry bob, i know jean lord very very well, and i have to say i am surprised at the backward advice you have given to someone at the age of 77. The use of the fear of god and the government taking over the universe. If anyone wants to point fingers, try pointing them at yourselves for once. walking away from homes to get a better, cheaper home is the reason the market is the way it is. Everyone has regressed to a child and blamed their parents (government). They were doing perfectly fine until you stopped taking responsability for your own actions.
