Following Bitcoin’s meteoric rise, dramatic crash, and ongoing recovery, ordinary people are left to ponder whether this was all hype and smoke, or the advent something of much greater significance. Are we in the early stages of a true emergence of an entirely new asset class and revolutionary technology capable of freeing mankind from the grip of central banks, and solving previously impossible problems in finance, privacy, and trust?

Will Lehr, gold & silver IRA expert and co-founder of Perpetual Assets, who is just back from the 2018 Anarchapulco Conference, visits Reluctant Preppers to report on the new spirit of optimism and innovation he is witnessing in this emerging industry. Lehr gives his personal testimony from the heart of an active crypto-technology project, and shares his insider’s perspective on the true import and impact to our lives coming from crypto-technology.

Given Lehr’s solid reputation as a faithful advocate of personal physical possession of gold, silver, & platinum bullion, when he speaks out about a radical shift in the future of finance, we would do well to pay attention.

Blessings,

“Helping You Be Aware and Prepared”

The year was 2010, the year of the beginning of my personal awakening.  I saw a meme on Facebook of building 7 in free fall with the caption stating the fact that it was blocks away from the twin towers and was not hit by a plane.  That was a wtf moment for me.

That awakening process was a scary one, Complete with studies of agenda 21, fema camps, land grabs, civil asset forfeiture, the arrests and assassinations of journalists.  There was seemingly no way out for humanity.

Bitcoin was just barely alive, although unbeknownst to me.  I spent two years in the darkness before crawling out.  I prepped, I freaked out my friends and family, I made rash decisions.  Looking back I realize it was that time of darkness when my character was most sculpted.  I needed the darkness to truly yearn for the light.   The darkness made me realize the sanctity of freedom.

Soon after I learned about open source communication, consensus algorithms, and the distributed ledger technology on which the bitcoin ecosystem operates.   I was fascinated with the mechanics, although it took me several more years to finally understand the application.  It takes time for the mind to envision how this tech is going to change industries, methodologies, and manners of human communication and transfer of value.   Once that vision is finally grasped, those deep in this space are unwavering in their mission to help make the world a better place.  Hence the “hype” label given to our efforts by the mainstream.

After a couple grueling years in the darkness, with the help of some bitcoin optimism as well as the starting of a new company, the darkness began to fade.  We started Perpetual Assets as a way to help people remove their assets from the broken and dying legacy system.  I found when I was able to give back, with intention, the universe rewarded me by simply making my quest easier and my obstacles fewer.

This February was Perpetual assets third year sponsoring, exhibiting, and speaking at Anarchapulco and the rise in attendance is indicative of the groundswell of optimism that I am seeing on the retail investment level.  People are finally excited about something real, something organic, something with the power to liberate and elevate humanity.  The excitement is warranted.  The dreams are turning into reality.   The ideas are converging with momentum, international attention, and a flood of capital to fund the operations.

This is not just a disruptive technology.  This is not just the birth of a new asset class, which only happens every 500 years.  This is a revolution.  This will be the first time in human history where the people will overthrow multi thousand year legacy systems by creating their own currency and their own system for transferring value.  This is beyond unprecedented.

Dr Paul said ideas are powerful.  Victor Hugo said no one can stop an idea who’s time has come.   That time is now.

Most defined benefit pension plans are nothing but Ponzi schemes. Plans are now unraveling because of demographics. An increasing number of retirees, needing untenable returns, are supported by fewer and fewer people putting money in the system. Democrats sponsored a bailout scheme. Will it pass?

Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, plans to introduce legislation that would allow struggling multiemployer pension funds to borrow from the U.S. Treasury to remain solvent.

 

The bill, co-sponsored by Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, could be introduced later this week or shortly after. It would create a new office within the Treasury Department called the Pension Rehabilitation Administration. The funds would come from the sale of Treasury-issued bonds to financial institutions. The pension funds could borrow for 30 years at low interest rates. One restriction for borrowers is they could not make risky investments.

 

The bill would also fund a program at the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. to finance any remaining needs of pension plans borrowing from the new program. “Any money needed for the PBGC would be a tiny fraction of what it would otherwise be on the hook for if Congress fails to act,” said an analysis by Mr. Brown’s office.

Mr. Brown told a group of retired Teamsters in Ohio on Monday that the bill will be out shortly.

It Begins: Pension Bailout Bill

A reader asked me to comment on the story after reading ZeroHedge’s take: It Begins: Pension Bailout Bill To Be Introduced This Week.

“It’s bad enough that Wall Street squandered workers’ money — and it’s worse that the government that’s supposed to look out for these folks is trying to break the promise made to these workers. Not on our watch. We won’t allow that to happen,” said Brown.

 

No, instead what will happen “under his watch” is that funds collected from taxpaying Americans will be spent to satisfy the ridiculous retirement promises and obligations made over the past few decades, and while the immediate recipients of the funds, i.e. those looking at near-term retirement will be made whole, everyone else, i.e., taxpayers will lose.

 

And now that the machinery for pension bailouts is finally in motion, we look forward to the next, and possibly final, tear in the American social fabric, that between workers who can’t wait to retire to the generous pension promises (see “Why Illinois Is In Trouble – 63,000 Public Employees With $100,000+ Salaries Cost Taxpayers $10 Billion ” and “Mapping The $100,000+ California Public Employee Pensions At CalPERS Costing Taxpayers $3.0B”), and all those other unlucky taxpayers, who will have to fund these promises.
