Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - And Yet the Will of God Prevails


"A very small group of extremely wealthy and politically powerful men has now successfully concentrated into their own hands almost complete control over other people’s property; over other people’s money; over other people’s labor; over other people’s lives.  For too many of us, our lives are no longer truly free.  Our liberty is no longer real.  For we are no longer truly free to pursue our own happiness in the face of these men’s economic tyranny."

Franklin D. Roosevelt, Speech at the Democratic National Convention, June 27, 1936

"Progress is a nice word.  But change is its motivator. And change has its enemies.”

Robert F. Kennedy

"The overwhelming majority of our people have met the demands of this war with magnificent courage and understanding. They have accepted inconveniences; they have accepted hardships; they have accepted tragic sacrifices.  However, while the majority goes on about its great work without complaint, a noisy minority maintains an uproar of demands for special favors for special groups.  There are pests who swarm through the lobbies of the Congress and the cocktail bars of Washington, representing these special groups as opposed to the basic interests of the Nation as a whole.  They have come to look upon the war primarily as a chance to make profits for themselves at the expense of their neighbors."

Franklin D. Roosevelt, State of the Union, January 11, 1944

“There are two ways to be fooled.  One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”

Søren Kierkegaard

"If history is what is recorded, then deep history is the sum of events which tend to be officially obscured or even suppressed in traditional books and media.  Important recent deep events include the political assassinations of the 1960s, Watergate, Iran-Contra, and now 9/11.  All these deep events have involved what I call the deep state, that part of the state which is not publicly accountable, and pursues its goals by means which will not be approved by a public examination."

Peter Dale Scott, 9/11, JFK, and War: Recurring Patterns

"The will of God prevails. In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be, wrong. God cannot be for and against the same thing at the same time.   In the present civil war it is quite possible that God's purpose is something different from the purpose of either party — and yet the human instrumentalities, working just as they do, are of the best adaptation to effect His purpose.  I am almost ready to say that this is probably true — that God wills this contest, and wills that it shall not end yet.  By his mere great power, on the minds of the now contestants, He could have either saved or destroyed the Union without a human contest.  Yet the contest began. And, having begun He could give the final victory to either side any day.

Yet the contest proceeds."

Abraham Lincoln, Washington D.C., September, 1862

It was relatively quiet, a minor stock option monthly expiration.

The Comex metals option expirations are coming at the end of November for the big December futures contracts.

Stocks rallied, and then finished unchanged to slightly lower.

Gold and silver rallied, and then finished slightly lower.

VIX declined again.

The Dollar fell.

The markets seemed dull and lackluster overall, as if they were tired and uncertain.

Let's see what transpires over the weekend.

As you know the 60th anniversary of the public execution of John F. Kennedy will be on next Wednesday, November 22nd.

I have been watching a number of videos and reading things, to see what progress has been made in uncovering what really happened, and why.  As with so many of our generation, I remember it well.

And have witnessed, over time, the slow unraveling of the misinformation and coverup.

For what does it profit a man, even those who esteem themselves mighty and powerful as gods?

And yet the will of God prevails.

Have a pleasant weekend.
