In the first half, John Truman Wolfe, the editor/publisher of The Hard Truth magazine, shared his analysis of the extreme conditions in the financial markets and what to expect for the rest of 2018. While he doesn't believe the market has reached its peak yet, he predicts a crash of stocks worse than in 2008. They'll fall some 10,000 points, possibly later this year, he believes. If war and global unrest worsen, he expects that precious metals will begin to rise in value, as well as during a stock slide.
The primary purpose of the 2008 financial crisis, he argued, was to take down the US dollar as the world's reserve currency. Wolfe expressed concern over "bail-ins," a newly implemented banking process, which involves troubled banks converting depositors' money into bank stock. In his recent book, he lists around 100 banks in America, which are independent, and not subject to these bail-ins. He named the Bank for International Settlements, based in Switzerland, as "the wizard" behind the financial curtain, dictating policy for 55 central banks around the world. While Wolfe considers cryptocurrencies to be highly volatile, they're here to stay, he said, and investors might consider putting about 1% of their funds into this market.
Paranormal investigator, minister, and radio host Ted VanSon has been passionate about the unknown for over 30 years. In the latter half, he detailed the various ways ghosts and EVP are captured and how technology is changing the way investigators attempt to record various phenomena. Ted described low budget ways the average person can investigate on their own, such as using simple things you have in your home like balloons and magnets. While he retains a skeptical stance in his investigations, he's definitely seen things he can't explain.
At a long-running investigation of a house in upstate New York, he was shocked to see an opaque shadow crawl up a wall toward the ceiling, "and it kind of melted into the wall." It was the size of an 8-year old child with two legs and, strangely, four arms. Two EMF meters running in the area returned anomalous readings at the time, but later they read as normal, he reported. However, a video camera that was on did not capture the shadow, and in some cases, it seems that apparitions may have some type of ability to evade capture on camera equipment, he suggested.
