Lying is like witchcraft. Both are casting a spell on the listener.
We've got a lot of unhappy people here today. All asking the question what’s the Real Truth? Who can we believe today or any day for that matter? And what about this question, where’s the accountability for lying? If you’re told a lie and repeat this same lie to others are you culpable and accountable? What constitutes accountability or responsibility for harm to others that believed and acted on your lie? These are questions for every responsible, sentient being to consider. These are questions that pastors and churches wrestle with and they’ve got an answer. Their message is this. God said lying is witchcraft. It casts a spell on the listener. They teach that there’s only one thing that can stop a lie and that’s PROOF. Demand proof. Demand verification and the lie will stop. Demand that those spreading lies give proof and if it isn’t given the liars will go away in disgrace and hopefully, humility. This is a simple recipe to stop a lie in its tracks.
Last night several very good people perpetrated the lie of HSBC being “The Only Bank for Zim Sovereign Exchange.” I use the word, “lie” because no one has been able to verify this with HSBC. The lies last night were:
- HSBC is the only bank exchanging ZIM for negotiated sovereign rates.
- Wells Fargo is now prohibited from exchanging ZIM for anything other than negotiated rates.
- Any bank you call will forward you to HSBC for your ZIM exchange if you seek to negotiate rates.
- Every bank that does international exchange will be providing new GCR rates for all of our “exotic” currencies. The RV is here now, quietly, truly, definitely, this is your RV. Call HSBC at 6 AMtomorrow morning for your appointment. Call any bank of your choice tomorrow and you will be able to exchange. All banks are prepared to exchange.
- Someone already called HSBC to confirm and they were told to call back at 6 AM EST tomorrow and they will be given appointment to exchange their ZIM.
- All of this is true and, no “flinching” from anywhere. We’re that confident.
Are any of these statements true? NO. NONE CAN BE VERIFIED. NOT ONE. DO NOT CALL ANY BANK ABOUT THIS!
How can this happen? Someone somewhere cast a spell…. Someone up the chain made this statement and it was bought by Tank, Yosef and Fisher hook, line and sinker and guess what? We all bit as well. Where did the lie start? We can’t know. Maybe someone heard directly from God and reported it as fact. We can’t know. Does it matter? One person asked for proof on the call and was told with absolute confidence, this is TRUE. So, what do you do in today’s world? You bite your tongue because, well, you like this guy! You keep the faith. You keep on keeping on and develop a little thicker skin. What you don’t do is hold off on buying your medicine and instead pay the house note because the RV is here!
In other words, develop further apathy. IT HAS TO STOP NOW. NO APATHY ALLOWED! We can’t continue on this path of slip-shod decision-making; of betrayal of our good trust and the wearing down of our INNOCENCE. It HAS TO STOP NOW!
This community can ask for respect. We can ask for accountability. We can ask for humility and those who commit these perfidious acts of lying to be accountable. Stand up and say, I was WRONG! Demonstrate this with a statement of contrition! Make amends and throw the lying scumbag under the bus that fed you the lie to begin with! How about that? So we can all run back and forth on this wrong-headed mongrel and feel like we have some power! Because as a group-at-large we are P O W E R F U L!!!!
Our ability to coordinate and act is HUGE. This size and reach of this community is not to be trifled with yet we are diddled like innocent children and too many are harmed. This must end. There are many, many sophisticated, educated, worldly people with currency that are reading these blogs. Let’s let the triflers know that their spell is bound. We are binding them in TRUTH. We are DEMANDING TRUTH. We will seek for nothing less.
We know these facts are TRUE. Rates are showing or have shown both at TELLER LEVEL and back-bank-screen. Pending, PENDING, alerts have been flashing on the currency trader’s desk, notifying the adjustment of our currencies. Rates given by YOSEF and others ARE TRUE! These back-bank-screens showing privately negotiated rates are REAL. We know that others have exchanged. Whether or not they have free and clear money or partial or some is given on loan against their account is unknown. They’re spending money and have stopped talking. That much we know is true. That these actions are evident and that these rates are being or have been verified is our obvious indicator that this WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE TO ALL OF US. BECAUSE (and this must be all caps because I am so emphatic about this point) IF THEY DON’T THEN THE LAWSUITS WILL EXPLODE ALL OVER THE PLANET. If they don’t then those that have been given loans will be asked to repay their loans. These are not people you want to have angry with you.
Finally, I’m one of the educated, sophisticated, worldly-wise individuals holding currency. A long time ago I imagined how this would go and it is exactly as was discussed last night. Like many, I heard the long-held fables about this person going in and that person doing this, the flying man flying, etc., etc., and I thought, “maybe, okay, but I doubt it.” The “lie” we heard may not be a lie at all just a slow start on a day they were supposed to have their act together. We can only hope this is the case. Like many I’ve got my eggs covered in every possible direction. And, as One who waits, I expect the BEST and prepare for the worst.
Keeping the faith… and not calling the bank until it’s clear-sailing.
