Who Moved My Cheese? was a New York Time best-selling business book published in 1998. It uses the analogy of mice searching for cheese to help the corporate world deal with constant change.
Even the examples in this ground-breaking book are no match for the change society is about to undergo. Patriots (ie. — those who are awake) are well-aware of the cognitive dissonance amongst those deemed “normies” — those who are completely unaware of the largest revolution in the history of mankind that’s in progress. They’ve “slept” through it all and, in fact, I still get told every week that I’m completely out-of my mind. Maybe “cognitive dissonance is a better term. Many will truly be in shock when the truth is finally made public.
I have a sense of frustration with not being able to provide any dates for the start of the Emergency Broadcast System going forward, because on Friday, September 9th, the newly anointed King Charles III proclaimed that there would be 17 days of mourning for the dead queen, rather than the 13 we’d been expecting. In other words, they’ve changed the dates once again on us — they’ve moved our EBS cheese!
So, below you’ll find a calendar, in which I’ve placed the elements I currently know of, but there’s still a lot of speculation as to how all the final bits and pieces are going to come together.
A Pivotal Event — The Queen’s Death
The Queen’s Death was announced 17 Months after Prince Phillip Died, 911 Days since the Pandemic started and 1776 Days since the first Q Drop. These numbers attest to the plan being in place and that White Hats are in full control of what’s happening. As they tell us quite often, “You’re watching a movie.”
Much of what goes on is to expose the corruption and wake up the population as to what’s going on. It can’t be done all at once, but must be done in stages. Otherwise, a civil war would most certainly break out.
Seventeen equals the number Q in the alphabet and the continual use of this number is a reminder that the White Hats are in control. For example, the Queen had ordered that after September 11, the Star Spangled Banner would be played at Buckingham Palace. That’s, of course, because the US Military defeated the UK after the Queen declared war on America. (the Queen was responsible for the taking down of the Twin Towers). You’re going to find out so much more about the incredible levels of corruption that existed.
Whiplash347 (in Telegram) says the Queen won’t make it to burial and she travels by plane Tuesday night, September 13. We’ll have to see if that’s the case. There’s a lot of speculation as to how the funeral will play out — after all, she’s been dead since December, 2019.
The Queen’s death ends the CROWN and that’s an absolutely HUGE event. It’s all being confirmed and shown right in front of our eyes – that we are no longer under Admiral Law, no longer under the CORPORATION, no longer under the Lizard Queen, and no longer SLAVES to the Cabal system. The BAR is not longer legal and that means lawyers are not licensed (lawyers pledged allegiance to the Queen — they were not working for you, but for a money-making entity. That’s over. We’re moving to natural law.
There are now no gold fringes on the FLAGS (these denote a fake government, or an enemy (foreign) government as in a corporation owned by another country, as was the case of Washington DC within the confines of the United States, a republic).
Meanwhile, back in the U.S., the FBI, in a last gasp sign of desperation last week raided the homes, or subpoenaed, as many as 35 of President Trump’s closest allies, as reported by Steve Bannon, who also surrendered to authorities to appear in a Southern District of New York court room looking defiant as ever. Make no mistake about it, the Patriots are on the offensive.
JUST IN (Wednesday night, 6:30 pm EST
The Movie Plays Out
You’re watching a movie and the scariest/hardest part of the movie is near the END when it feels like all hope is lost. That’s where we’re heading. It has to be this way to expose what has been going on under our very noses. It must all be taken down before we can build it back up.
However, the best is yet to come, just like in the movies.
The death of Queen Elizabeth II is one of many signs that some sort of black swan mega-event is coming to the West this October. It remains to be seen whether this will be a bloody revolution, anarchy or a peaceful transition.
The death of QEII means the death of the head of the Committee of 300, known to many as the secret leadership of the western world. This follows the removal of the entire top ranks of the Knights of Malta: the military leadership of the West. This has resulted in the firing of all the leaders of NATO.
Gnostic Illuminati sources say the three Egyptian obelisks of western power are all set to collapse. The first obelisk located in the City of London is the seat of financial power. With the death of QEII it fell, it is said. The second obelisk — in Washington DC — is the seat of military power. It fell with the replacement of aristocratic leadership by the meritocracy of the Knights of Malta. The third obelisk, symbolizing spiritual power, is in Rome. So now all eyes are on the papacy. Illuminati sources promise that Pope Francis will be removed in a spectacular and public manner in the coming days.
The big changes are not limited to the West. China’s Communist Party has postponed its major national congress, which takes place every five years, from November to October. Constitutional changes are being made there that will lead to “new governance strategies.” China will become a republic.
Also in September will be an unprecedented gathering of world leaders and those in power.
For example, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi are meeting on September 15-16. This will be followed by the Queen’s funeral on September 19th. This will be one of the largest gatherings of world power brokers in recent world history. Among the many participants are, for example, the so-called US President Joe Biden and the Japanese Emperor.
We must also remember that all of this is happening as the September 30 payment deadline approaches for the families who own the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION, the United Nations, the World Bank, the IMF and other pillars of Western power.
In particular, the fate of the Rockefeller family is to be decided. Members of this clan are Hillary and Bill Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, John Podesta, David Rockefeller Jr. and many others.
Jesus, the Julian Calendar, and EBS
Jesus’ REAL date of birth was on September 9th, but on the Julian Calendar — the calendar we’ll be moving to. It’s the calendar that Julius Caesar put into place during his reign, but it was changed to the Gregorian (satanic) calendar in October, 1582 by Pope Gregory XIII. (You’re going to learn that 13 is a sacred number — another elements that has suffered from satanic propaganda).
The Julian calendar has 13 months, each of 28 days (this synchronizes with the Moon). This was the way it always meant to be.
So, Jesus was born on 9/11. However, it was 9/11 on the Julian calendar. How does it translate to today?
There’s a thirteen day difference between the two. In fact, September 24 on the Gregorian calendar (our present calendar) translates to September 9 on the Julian Calendar (24 – 13 = 11).
Our immediate target is the Gregorian Sept. 11, because this appears to be when the final seventeen day sequence will begin (three to five days of bank holiday, which leads into ten days of the Emergency Broadcast System).
While I originally thought we might start a thirteen day period of video playback on September 14 (after 3 days of bank holiday), that schedule dissolved once Charles declared 17 days of mourning. They keep changing the schedule so it’s impossible to predict anything at the moment, other than what they tell us publicly. The original schedule would have ended on Jesus’ birthday, but maybe that’s when the EBS playback begins. It’s a mystery at the moment.
On a larger scale, it’s now obvious that much of the schedule so far has followed timeframes laid out in the Bible. In fact, it has suggested that this process will, in fact, end the Bible. The Bible predicted the second coming of Christ and metaphorically, perhaps, that is what is happening. This has been a war between good and evil on Earth, but it is much bigger than that. It’s actually affecting many races and planets throughout the galaxy, but more on that at another time (you’ll find out all about it very soon).
Here’s looking at what I believe is the process, placed on a September Calendar:
The Information that I have been given suggests the Event (end civilization event) starts between 9/11 + 9/19. Here are some important dates to watch. They should gradually provide clues as to where we are in the process of the Great Awakening.
“With several countries going back to lockdown for the Omicron variant, which is the Military code for the cleanup operation for the CCP Pedophilies & Traitors. We’ve entered the Closing Act: initiating the EBS, Military Tribunals and Full Disclosure Of The Galactic Alliance. A big challenge and somewhat of a hold-up has been the rescuing of our children from tunnels & DUMBS. As the remaining countries lock down and reports of COVID-19 diagnosis’ continue, the news unlocks the map of events. Prepare to archive and be offline. A SHUTDOWN is coming” — John F Kennedy Jr. 19th Vice President
Saturday, September 3: Trump had his rally in Pennsylvania and laid down quite a lot of truth bombs, some of which were in code. The short story is that it confirmed how close we are the start of the Emergency Broadcast System playback.
Tuesday, September 6: JFK Jr. was supposed to have made a public appearance as a real live person, but I keep hearing it’s not safe enough yet. I don’t have a new date on this, but it has to be soon. His presence is obvious is several places in the Telegram application.
The Schumann Resonance source data (the frequency of the Earth) went dark on this date and I’m hearing it will be dark for ten days (ten days of darkness?), which takes us to September 15, when the new gold-backed currencies will be available at the banks. They will “reopen” on the 15th as QFS (Quantum Financial System) compliant.
Thursday, September 8: Queen Elizabeth was pronounced dead publicly. The next day, the 9th, Charlies III was sworn in as king and proclaimed that there would be 17 days of mourning, rather than the 13 we were expecting. This certainly muddies up the schedule.
The other factor we have to deal with in terms of timing is that we’ve been told that we’ll revert back to the Julian Calendar sometime during the month of September, but we don’t know when. The most obvious day would be on September 24, which is September 11 on the Julian calendar.
Sunday, September 11: 9/11 came and went and a tremedous amount on information came out about what happened on that date in 2001, but there’s obviously more to come. In the move, The Matrix, Neo’s license expired on September 11 — so it marks a major turning point. Much of what we’re experiencing has been “leaked out” in many past movies, like Back to the Future. The Satanists always have to tell you what they’re going to do and they’ve been using movies for many years to do just that.
Sept 12 – 14: The “shutdown” and re-opening of the banks was confirmed from multiple sources, but many were open, perhaps based on the fact that many had closures earlier for the same purpose. So, it would make sense that if they were already QTS compliant, they would stay open.
Wednesday, September 15 Banks will open and will be compliant with the new Quantum Financial System and have the currency on hand, which will be announced the public. This might mean we’ll have the public announcement of GESARA, but I don’t know if that will be the case. With the funeral in London still to come, I tend to think it may not be announced until at least Monday, the 19th, which is shaping up to be a very important date.
Saturday, September 17: There is a Trump rally in Ohio.
September 19: This is Queen Elizabeth’s funeral and will be a very large affair, with reportedly 2000 elites in attendance. Many of them are being forced to travel by bus to the event. There will be a no-fly zone over London that day and for several days before. There are rumours that there will be arrests.
There are hints that Princess Diana will be revealed, Charles arrested, and that she’ll become Queen. Nothing is for sure.
Saturday, September 24: This is Jesus’ real birthday, which is also 9/11 (Sept. 11) on the Julian calendar, the calendar that was in place at the top of the Roman Empire when Jesus was alive. Sometime in September, we’re apparently going to move back to the Julian Calendar.
It might make sense that this may be the day (Sept. 24) when we flip back on the Julian Calendar. reverting to September 11 — Christ’s birthday, CHRISTMAS DAY.
There’s a lot of disinformation out there on purpose. They do not want the remaining Deep State members to disrupt plans and so they keep the dates under wraps. I’ve done my best to give you me best guess as how this will play out, but nobody knows the details.
EBS? Due to the change in the length of mourning and the imminent changes to the calendar, it’s anybody’s guess when the Emergency Broadcast System will kick in, but we’re led to believe it’s going to be very soon.
How the Plan Began
Dr. Kim Kukich Tesla is the niece of Nikola Tesla. She’s had to remain hidden until now, for obvious reasons (she’s the brains behind the Tesla free electricity technology. She works directly with President Trump and is the Military’s Press Secretary.
Here’s the first video of five part series she put together that takes you back to the start of THE PLAN TO SAVE THE WORLD and then goes even further back in time to share truths that few people on Earth know — information that came from the caverns of the Vatican.
This is part one and shares with you how the plan began.
“It has always been them, they have been invading you ever since. The use of artificial intelligence allowed the reptilians and greys to maximize their control over the population.
Through the news & social media networks, using bots & CGI, clones & doubles. They would be able to easily manipulate whoever they needed with the use of their technology, it could appear to be anyone. This same procedure has been used as disclosure as we have entered Phase III, the Galactic Alliance will soon be landing on the White House front lawn & decloaking- you know like The Day The Earth Stood Still, the documentary… This will begin Military Tribunals & All Pedophilia/Treason/Criminal activity, arrests & executions – complete disclosure. As we prepare for the Quantum Leap to 5D – the cohesion for all new technologies starts to transition from the old system to the new. Our Q drops allows the dissemination of information across all social media platforms, via Executive Order 13818. Patriots Are Now In Control.” — John F Kennedy Jr. 19th Vice President
We’re near the end of THE STORM, which is a period where the focus is mass arrests from unsealed indictments. There are hundreds of thousands of them and each indictment can name up to one hundred people. It continued through this past week, as expected, and will continue through at least the next two weeks, even when the Emergency Broadcast System plays out.
I’m still hearing of planes and trains shutting down. Last week, Lufthansa shut down hundreds of flights, leaving some 130,000 passengers in the lurch. This week, it’s a strike on the train systems that’s looming in the US.
it’s impossible to know exact dates for anything, as under 10 people know the plan, but we have so many clues now that the we’re very near the end — the fourth quarter, as they keep telling us.
We’ve been told that when we see the public exposure of the Queen’s death, the dominoes will immediately start falling. It seems to be happening. This rest of this week should be dramatic, with even more in store for next week.
So, it sounds like popcorn time. Thankfully, with the internet remaining up during the Awakening, trading will continue. It may become quite volatile..
We still have these major events still to go. I don’t know what the timing will be, but it will start to get obvious in the coming days, I think.
We’re now in the GREAT AWAKENING phase, but THE STORM is still underway. Some of the expected events below have happened (GREEN CHECK MARK) and some are in progress:
- (in progress) WW3 Scare Event. Nuke Sirens: This is the Russia/Ukraine false flag war. The real end target it Israel. It’s the rathole where the Zionists live (they own main stream media), the Mossad hangs out and the last of the Kharzarian mafia (the Rothschilds, and friends). As the Q Team has always said, “Israel will be last” and the buildings that are “going down” and imploding, meaning they’re pre-wired with explosives). Pending.
- Changing over to Tesla Free Energy (this will require power to go off around the world, but it will be a short blackout)
- (partially complete, but don’t know the count) 34 satanic buildings & dams bombed — I think some of these buildings have already been taken out, but the major ones still have to be dismantled, probably with Rods of God. The major buildings appear to be part of an energy grid system that has keep the natural energy of the Earth suppressed — much more on this to come. The White House is going to be imploded; it has already been wired up with explosives. The Georgia Guidestones were destroyed weeks ago, along with an obelisk and nearby buildings close to the Vatican, in Italy.
- (Reports now CONFIRM that this happened on August 29.) Breaking of the 3 Gorges Dam in China. There’s major flooding in China this past week and this week. This dam sits above Wuhan and the plan is that the water from the break will destroy the Wuhan lab, which has a link to US Big Pharma, and will be the beginning of the end for them. Bitcoin Servers turned off (99.5% of Crypto gone China Coins) — this involves the dismantling of 24 nuclear reactors under the dam that provide the electricity for Bitcoin. This is going to be cover for the breaking of the 3 Gorges Dam.
- (now in Ukraine, Canada, US and possibly some other countries) Martial Law — for the ten days dubbed “ten days of darkness,” and beyond. It will likely stay in place much longer as the cleanup continues. Actually, it should be called “ten days to the light!” It will be the Great Awakening as we see round the clock video that explains most of what’s been going on the last 5 years to overthrow what’s been going on for two thousand years! — the Illuminati.
- AND, of course …. GESARA (which semi-officially (Queen Romana) came in on Feb, 22, 2022 in Canada).
This is THE STORM/GREAT AWAKENING. They want you to stay at home during the EBS period. We’re likely to see more visible signs of military. Keep stocked up for two to three weeks. Arrests will continue during the EBS playback.
The Pineal Gland
Below is a short video that will give you an idea as to the importance of the pineal gland to your future. It pretty much defines the difference between someone experiencing the 3D world we’ve been enslaved in and moving up to total freedom and a five dimensional world. Living in a 5D world with a working pineal gland will instantly give you memories of where you really came from, past lives you’ve lived, and will open you up to time travel and space travel across the Universe.
This is the life that potentially lies ahead of you, if you choose. The first step is to decalcify the pineal gland. This is something you can do you on your own. Med Beds, when they come out, will also de-calcify your pineal gland.
Ways to De-calcify the Pineal Gland
There are many other methods you can use, but now you have enough basic information that you can do your own research.
I use a very simple, daily method that you’ll find explained in “Borax” graphic on the left. I put less than an 1/8th of a teaspoon in a pint glass of fresh spring water, stir it well until the crystals are absorbed in the water and then drink it during the day.
I’ve seen spectacular results with this method. It clears up any fogginess in thinking in the brain (particularly if you’re older and makes you much more intuitive. It has affected me positively in my trading analysis).
Keep in mind that this process makes your body slightly alkaline. Cancer cannot “live” in an alkaline environment.
The other thing I do is listen to healing frequencies that rid the body of nanobots that have been placed by the Deep State in our food.
Enjoy the Awakening!
Know the Past. See the Future
The Market — B Down, C Up
I was a bit nervous about the rally in futures on Friday, due to the fact that DXY (the US Dollar Index) didn’t budge at all for the entire day. DXY moves in the opposite direction from US futures (eminis) and the waves down appeared to be corrective. That was suggesting to me that the rallies in futures might not be valid. Contributing to that uneasiness was my inability (on the fly) to get the subwaves in futures to measure correctly.
However, once I had more time on Friday night to analyze all the usual “bad actors,” in particular DXY, it became apparent that we, in fact do have valid waves up in futures (a more or less complete A wave up) and that, we can expect a drop in futures to complete a B wave down. At the same time currencies are most likely to completely retrace the move of last week.
This market just gets crazier and crazier. There’ve been a lot of fake-out moves over the past eight months as this very difficult fourth wave down in US indices from January, 2022 has played out. And, we still have a ways to go!
I’m expecting weakness in futures this weekend, but I don’t think the expected B wave down will complete on the weekend. It’s more likely that we’ll see the A and B wave of a three wave move by Monday morning, perhaps, and then complete the C wave down by end of day Monday. That’s speculative, so we’ll see.
Then, I’d expect a rather large C wave rally to play out during the balance of the week and over next weekend, at least.
I’m expecting the announcement of GESARA very soon, along with other events that will serve to shock the “normies” (those that are still unaware of the revolution that’s so clearly in progress to the rest of us.) This announcement will move likely bring in a higher level of martial law. Riots are expected.
However, with the announcement on Friday of a longer period of mourning, it difficult to say when some of these known events will play out.
The banks will be closed from Monday to Wednesday this week and when they open, the new financial system should be ready to go in banks around the world.
There could be internet or electricity issues during the coming week, but my sense is that we may be OK in that area until we get to the weekend.
Trump has announced another rally on Saturday, the 17th of September, so that gives me the feeling (along with the market) that we may not see the start up of the Emergency Broadcast System until at least the next weekend.
We’re clearly in the end game now. There could be increased volatility, but overall, after Monday, I’d expect a large rally to continue, the C wave that will finish off the larger B wave of the expanded flat we’re tracing out. The resulting top will result in a 900 point (roughly) drop in futures.
The Queen is dead, so is Charles, her son, so the movie plays out. Charles won’t be around long as an actor, either. He intimated that he would declare war on the United States, after starting that Trump is the real (elected) President. The intrigue is ramping up. This movie has lots of twists and turns, but the current state of affairs has to be justified to the public.

Want some truth?
All the Same Market.
I’ve been mentioning for months now that the entire market is moving as one entity, the “all the same market” scenario, a phrase that Robert Prechter coined many years ago, when he projected the upcoming crash.
We’re in the midst of deleveraging the enormous debt around the world. Central banks are losing the control they had and we’re slowly sinking into deflation world-wide, with Europe in the lead.
The US dollar is fully in charge of both the equities and currencies markets. They’re all moving in tandem, as I’ve been saying since September of 2017. Over the past three years, their movements have been moving closer and closer together and one, and now they’re in lock-step, with the major turns happening at about the same time.
it’s challenging because often times currency pairs are waiting for equities to turn, and other times, it’s the opposite. The other frustrating thing is that in between the major turns, there are no major trades; they’re all, for the most part day-trades. That’s certainly the case in corrections, where you very often have several possible targets for the end of the correction.
We’re now close to a turn in the US indices, currency pairs, oil, and even gold. Elliott wave does not have a reliable timing aspect, but it looks like we should see a top very soon.

US Market Snapshot (based on end-of-week wave structure)
This chart is posted to provide a prediction of future market direction. DO NOT trade based upon the information presented here (certainly NOT from a daily chart).
(From Sunday, September 11) Above is the daily chart of ES (click to enlarge, as with any of my charts).
The overall direction in futures is still to the upside and will be until we reach a new all-time high, at the top of the fifth wave. We're currently in a large fourth wave correction to the downside since early January, 2022.
Large fourth waves, like the current one (down since early January 2022, typically manifest as combination waves; they contain up to three distinct, but connected, corrective waves. These patterns are most often zigzags, but can also include flats, a triangle, or an ending diagonal. This fourth wave has completed a double zigzag, then a triple zigzag, and we're now in an expanded flat. That's three patterns and that's the maximum allowed.
Flats, triangles, and diagonals are final patterns within a combination wave because each of these pattern completely retrace the pattern when complete.
We continue to work through an expanded flat in both ES and NQ.
This expanded flat will end with a C wave down in five waves to a new low. The five-waver will look very much like a motive wave, except for the fifth wave, which sometimes doesn't complete all five sub-waves.
As of last weekend (extended through Monday) we finished a B wave down to a new low. Starting Tuesday, we turned back up and by Friday, had almost completed the expected A wave up what should be an ABC wave up to finish off the largerB wave up of the expanded flat that we're in. I expect a high above 4350 in ES to complete this B wave up.
Then look for a C wave down of the flat, which will be in 5 waves to a new low.
In the meantime, we'll see a retrace back down to most likely about 62% of the A wave up that traced out last week. Timing for these moves is questionable, but I would think that the C wave up to a new high might last the entire week coming.
The concern in all this is the probability for increased volatility as we ride out the aftermath of the proposed bank shutdown coming September 11. I had called for the death of Queen Elizabeth either before the weekend, or on Monday coming, but it came and went on Thursday, September 8.
This marks the end of the CROWN. I expect GESARA to be announced on September 11 and this may well usher in a heavier version of martial law. Trump has now scheduled a rally for September 17, so my thinking is that the Emergency Broadcast System might be delayed until the weekend.
The announcement of GESARA will shut down governments, courts, and police worldwide and bring in natural law throughout. It's a major milestone.
Banks will be closed for three days (Sept 11-14) and you won't be able to get money out through ATMs. They talk about "taking down the economy" but I believe this is just hyperbole. The internet might go down. At some point, we'll have a blackout and a switch over to the new internet. Mainstream media channels will go down during the Emergency Broadcast System playback. I don't know how all this will affect trading, but be aware that we could face some disruptions.
DXY is at the top of a third wave, in what looks like an ending diagonal. However, I expect a test of the highs. Once DXY reaches the high, it will turn down into a fourth wave and that will spark a turn up in just about everything else I cover, except the Canadian dollar and the yen, which typically move in the same direction as DXY.
A flat is a 3-3-5 pattern. In other words (in a bearish market), the A wave down was in three waves, the B wave that we're near the top of is also tracing out three waves, and the C wave back down to a new low will trace out 5 waves.
This final C wave down is typically a length of 165% of the A wave down. You have to be vigilant with the final 5th wave of this C wave drop, because most of the time it does not complete in 5 waves itself. The fifth wave tends to truncate after three waves. Flats always retrace completely so we need to expect a new all-time low.
The C wave down, some 900 points, is a phenomenon that typically happens in a September timeframe, and it appears that's what we're setting up for, at long last.
I've said for months that once we reach a low, or at the very least, start heading for a low, the Emergency Broadcast System won't be very far away, and that's still my thinking.
Summary: We're now up in a corrective expanded flat pattern, and have turned up into the final C wave up of the larger B wave of the flat. I expect a rally to continue after a corrective, partial retrace back down starting this weekend. The balance of the rally will take us to a new pattern high, somewhere around the 4350 level in ES. Then, I'm expecting another large wave down to a new low before this large fourth wave dowm from early January is considered complete.
When the bottom of this large, five-month-long fourth wave is confirmed, it will lead to the final fifth wave up to a new high and end the rally from March 2020.
Once we've reached an area below 2100, we'll turn back up to climb to a final slight new high in a fifth wave of this 500 year cycle top.
