But there is a Dark Side…

Submitted by Deepcaster:

Perhaps the Greatest Positive about “The Cloud” is that it is a Great Marketing Slogan. But like Most Marketing Tools, “The Cloud” as a Marketing Tool is a Fad, a passing Fancy/a Fancy Name for a Public Server hosting Multiple Clients. Already, we are seeing “Private Clouds” promoted — de facto a Return to having Servers under the greater Control of Single users, as in Days gone by.

 

Globalized Communications facilitating Asset Purchases, Sales and Transfers via the Banking and Market Systems, all enabled by Technology, have resulted in increased Efficiency and other Benefits.

 

But there is a Dark Side — a Congeries of Threats to Freedom and Wealth — which the Promoters of Enabling Systems like Public Clouds would prefer you not consider.

 

Our Goal in this first of a series is to help you consider how to take advantage of the New Efficiencies, but also to Eliminate or Mitigate the Threats. Consider

 

Threats not just from Hacking

 

The Public is generally aware of the Threats imposed by Hacking — which include theft of Credit Card, Banking, Health and Financial Information.

 

But the Public generally accepts these Threats as the prices one may pay for greater efficiency and ease of access to and acquisition of Assets and Services and Markets.

 

Therefore, while we certainly do not advocate abandoning entirely the Digitized, Banking, Market or Communications Systems (nor entirely abandoning quasi-public Clouds for Private Clouds), we do Advocate considering the following Analysis of Non-publicized Threats and Alternatives.

 

Non-Publicized Threats

 

If you are a typical Investor, most if not substantially all of your wealth is digitized and “resides” on some Remote Server which is part of “The Cloud”.

 

Beyond the Obvious Threat of Hacking, consider what happens if

 

— the Grid goes down

— some governmental or quasi-governmental entity decides to deny you access to, or appropriates, your assets

— you are blocked from Transferring your Assets from one Account, or Area, or Country to another (Bitcoin users hear, hear)

— in a Crisis, your Bank Account, 401K and/or IRA are “bailed in” per the orderly Resolution Provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act

— Or, as actually began to happen in 2008, a Domino-Effect of Counter Party Failures grew quickly. The Failures were centered in the Credit-Derivative Insurance Market and mainly in AIG which we Taxpayers Bailed Out to the Tune of $180 Billion!

 

And Next Time??!!

 

Antidotes with Profit and Wealth Protection Potential

 

Keep a substantial portion of your Assets outside the overlapping banking and financial and markets system, in multiple forms, which include:

 

— Cash in one or more currencies (which ones is the subject of an essay to come) NOTE: But the Globalist Mega-Bankers led by The Cartel (Note1) are conducting a War on Cash to further consolidate their Power. See a Future Installment of this series for how to cope.

— physical Gold and Silver and Quality Miners but see our recent Letters and Alerts for the preferred form/s for holding these Precious Metals and specific Selection of Quality Miners

— Agricultural land or other Ag Assets — if well selected, an excellent Profit Center and Hedge against the current Deflation, Inflation (soon) and then Hyperinflation which we expect (see our Recent Letters)

— Maintain Multiple Banking, Equities and Commodities Accounts to the extent Feasible. Time-honored Wisdom: Don’t keep all your eggs in one basket.

— Strenuously resist the pressure to go all-digital as manifested, e.g., in Banks eliminating Tellers or Paper Checks

— Keep Physical copies of all Important Records

— Citizens who allow themselves to be trapped into going all-digital are slowly but surely losing Freedom and Mobility, and, potentially, their Hard-earned Assets to Disappear in the Cloud, or elsewhere

— Monitor Developments and potentially Profit from in the ongoing Cartel War on Cash and Precious Metals and the Manipulation of other Markets, with the help of Deepcaster.com Forecasts (See Note 2 re Recent Profits Taken)

— Rely on the Real Statistics, such as those provided by Shadowstats.com (Note 3) rather than the Bogus ones issuing from the U.S. BLS, People’s Republic of China and other entities

 

Conclusion: Keep a Substantial Portion of Your Assets Outside the Banking and Financial Systems, in order to Maintain Freedom and Wealth and to provide Extraordinary Profit Opportunities.

Note 1: * We encourage those who doubt the scope and power of Overt and Covert Interventions by a Fed-led Cartel of Key Central Bankers and Favored Financial Institutions to read Deepcaster’s February, 2016 Letter entitled “Profit, Protection, Despite Cartel Intervention” in the ‘Latest Letter’ Cache at www.deepcaster.com. Also consider the substantial evidence collected by the Gold AntiTrust Action Committee at www.gata.org, including testimony before the CFTC, for information on precious metals price manipulation, and manipulation in other Markets. Virtually all of the evidence for Intervention has been gleaned from publicly available records. Deepcaster’s profitable recommendations displayed at www.deepcaster.com have been facilitated by attention to these “Interventionals.” Attention to The Interventionals facilitated Deepcaster’s recommending five short positions prior to the Fall, 2008 Market Crash all of which were subsequently liquidated profitably.

 

Note 2: Our attention to Key Timing Signals and Interventionals and accurate statistics has facilitated Recommendations which have performed well lately. Consider our profits taken in recent months in our Speculative and Fortress Assets Portfolios*
