Joseph Herrin (12-3-2014)
A number of readers have sent me links over the course of the past few weeks to an online video that is presented in the format of a journalist/news reporter interviewing Jim Rickards who has served as a consultant to the Department of Defense, CIA, and numerous government intelligence agencies. James G. Rickards is an American economist, lawyer and investment banker. In 2011 he published the New York Times best selling book Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crisis. More recently, in 2014, he published another bestseller titled The Death of Money: The Coming Collapse of the International Monetary System. Jim Rickards’ books currently hold the 1st, 3rd, and 4th positions among best sellers on Amazon under the category “Money and Monetary Policy.”
Rickards served as general counsel for the hedge fund Long-Term Capital Management (LTCM). He was the principal negotiator in the 1998 bailout of LTCM by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Obviously, Rickards is the ultimate government insider. One of his chief roles in this present hour is as a purveyor of disinformation. He is a master of spin. If people keep this in mind when reading his books and viewing his videos, they can glean some insight into the hour in which we live.
The video begins with the following words:
WARNING! Our government, military and intelligence community have begun implementing emergency measures for what they are calling “The Day After Plan...” Yet the American people have been kept in the dark about everything. In the following interview the CIA’s financial threat and asymmetric warfare advisor is stepping forward to warn the public that a $100 trillion dollar economic extinction level event is about to strike America.
Is this hyperbole? Or is the language and warning appropriately measured against the true threat that faces America and the nations? As I have often related in blog posts, Yahweh has been providing numerous signs, parables observable to the entire world, of the collapse of the global financial system. As a resident of the United States, I have especially been attuned to the testimonies Yahweh has provided of America’s impending collapse into civil war, anarchy, martial law, and the suspension of all constitutional freedoms.
It is difficult to imagine a more poignant divine message being sent than to observe Miss USA falling two years in a row (2007 and 2008) at the Miss Universe pageant. Each woman in this pageant represents a sovereign nation of the world. Miss USA stood tall as one of many national representatives. In the midst of the nations, Miss USA fell two years in a row. This repetition signifies that the matter has been determined by Yahweh, and it will not delay.
Now as for the repeating of the dream to Pharaoh twice, it means that the matter is determined by God, and God will quickly bring it about.
America’s fall is assured. She will be humbled in the sight of the nations. Even as the American flag fell to the ground during the playing of the national anthem at the 2012 Olympics in London, and as there have been numerous repetitions of the U.S. flag being ripped in two, or set afire, in extraordinary ways during major sporting events recently, Yahweh is signifying that America is about to descend into civil war and to experience a fiery conflagration. The collapse of the value of the dollar will be one of the most devastating shocks to the nations that will occur. Life for all Americans will be forever altered. The prosperity, ease, and comfort which have been synonymous with the American Dream for so long will suddenly be wiped away. The themes of “Change” and “RUIN” adopted by Barack Obama’s campaign teams during his two presidential elections will be fulfilled.
The second occurrence of Miss USA falling occurred in July of 2008. It was a Shemitah year. It did not take long for the world to begin seeing the fulfillment of America’s fall. On the last day of the Shemitah (Elul 29) which corresponds to Monday September 29, 2008, the DOW Jones Index fell a record 777 points, the greatest single point decline in Wall Street history.
This was just one facet of the financial shaking to hit the world that year. AIG, America’s largest insurer, had to be bailed out to prevent collapse. Lehman Brothers, the 4th largest investment bank in America failed and was sold at fire sale prices. Bear Stearns collapsed. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the monolithic government funded mortgage institutions were reeling, surviving only by the U.S. government guaranteeing their continued financial backing. Hundreds of banks have failed since that date. We are once more in a Shemitah year. This one will end on September 13th, which will also be the occasion of a solar eclipse. According to Hebrew tradition, a solar eclipse is a sign of evil for the nations.
At the time when the sun is eclipsed, it is an unfavorable period for the world. A parable: This can be compared to a human king who made a feast for his subjects, and placed a lantern before them. When he grew angry with them, he told his servant, "Take away the lantern from before them, and place them in darkness!" (Talmud Bavli, Succah 29a)
The king is G-d, the King of Kings; the people at the table are ourselves; the lantern is the sun. The moon obscuring the sun is the kings servant who takes away the lantern. Although eclipses can be described in entirely natural terms and occur at set intervals, they nevertheless indicate that the period is one of Divine retribution for various sins.
So, a solar eclipse signifies a harsh period.
This understanding of a solar eclipse being an omen for the nations is in accordance with the testimony of Scripture.
The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken, and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the nations of the earth will mourn...
It is significant that another solar eclipse occurred on May 10, 2013. What occurred on this date? The spire atop One World Trade Center in New York was set in place. This marked the building’s rise to its full height of 1,776 feet. This Illuminati monument (the Bavarian Illuminati was founded by Adam Weishaupt in the month of May, 1776) is Luciferian in design. It signifies the rising of a New World Order, a global government under the direct rule of Satan and his appointed human servants. The rising of Satan’s kingdom is truly a dark event for the nations, for he comes only to kill, steal, and destroy.
These events portend dark days ahead for the people of God. Even as the spire’s design was altered with deceitful explanations, resulting in it resembling a Muslim Mosque’s Minaret, and Muslim’s are commanded to kill or convert Jews and Christians, Satan is announcing open warfare against the saints of God. (Remember the controversy over building an Islamic mosque at Ground Zero? They got their mosque, for the entire building is a mosque, crowned with a minaret.) One of Satan’s longstanding organizations in America is The Shriners, all of which are high level Freemasons. They bear the emblems of Islam, including the red fez they wear upon their heads.
The origin of the red fez carries great significance for the hour we live in. Fez is the name of the third largest city in Morocco which currently has a population of approximately one million. After the advent of the Islamic religion in the 7th century A.D., Moslem hordes repeatedly slaughtered Christians and Jews in the city of Fez, exacting revenge upon the Crusaders and manifesting their undying enmity toward the Jewish people. At times Jews lived in large numbers in this Moroccan city and held positions of high office. This ended in 1465 when the Moslems slaughtered the entire Jewish population of the city. Tradition reports that the Fez was originally white in color, and that the Moslem murderers dipped their white hats in the blood of the slain that pooled in the streets of the city of Fez. Consequently, the red fez has become a popular symbol of Muslim slaughter of Jews and Christians who are together regarded as “infidels.”
Concerns that the Illuminati structure now dominating the New York skyline intentionally evokes the ascendancy of Islam over America and the nations might be little more than conspiracy theory if the Bible itself did not foretell Satan’s warfare against both Jews and Christians in these last days.
And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. And the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, in order that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth. And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Yahshua.
Brothers and sisters, we are living in the last days at the end of this present age. It is an hour in which the forces of darkness will unleash all their power, and devote themselves wholly, to establishing a single, Satanic, global rule over the earth. Christians and Jews will be the primary focus of Satan’s wrath, but all mankind will experience his relentless hatred toward the race of Adam. Is it not obvious that righteousness and truth are being attacked relentlessly, while homosexuality, the murder of babies in the womb, and every form of wickedness is being defended as normal and defined as the rights of the people?
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Companies like Chick-fil-a and Hobby Lobby are being savagely attacked by the media, evil rulers, and sin obsessed people. Their offense has been nothing more than to stand for morality, for the traditional definition of marriage being between a man and a woman, and refusing to supply abortion drugs to their employees (drugs which their employees are still able to acquire for themselves at little cost). For this they are decried as haters, intolerant, and as bigots who are seeking to impose their extreme religious views upon others. We are not far from the time when no man or woman will be able to conduct business, or to buy and sell, apart from wholly embracing the Satanic beast system of this dark world.
The question remains, “When will these things be? When will we begin to see the collapse and destruction of the old system of this world in order that the NWO Luciferian system might arise to take its place?” It is becoming increasingly apparent that we will not have to wait long. Even now the powers-that-be are plying the public with disinformation so they will blame the destruction of the current economic, political, and social structures on entities other than the true malefactors. Satan’s power is in his ability to deceive the masses of mankind. The books and videos by Jim Rickards are part of the propagation of lies and deceit, yet there is some truth to be gleaned as we “read between the lies.”
For those desirous of viewing the complete video titled Project Prophecy 2.0 with Jim Rickards, you can view it below. It is 45 minutes in length.
The video begins by summarizing the threats facing the world. These are summed up as follows:
Recently, all 16 branches of our Intelligence Community have come together to release a shocking report. 16 intelligence agencies issued warning of coming great depression.
These agencies, that include the CIA, FBI, Army, and Navy, they've already begun to estimate the impact of the fall of the dollar as the global reserve currency, and our reign as the world's leading super power being annihilated in a way equivalent to the end of the British Empire, post-World War II.
The end game could be a nightmarish scenario, where the world falls into an extended period of global anarchy. Jim Rickards fears he and his colleagues' warnings are being ignored by our political leaders and the Federal Reserve, and we're on the verge of entering the darkest economic period in our nation's history; One that will ignite a 25-year Great Depression. Today, we're going to examine everything he's uncovered because the bedlam could begin within the next six months.
The deception is clearly evident from the very beginning of this presentation. The deceit is found in the statement “Jim Rickards fears he and his colleagues' warnings are being ignored by our political leaders and the Federal Reserve.” In truth, the global elite who control the Federal Reserve, and the politicians who are bought and paid for by the same cabal of corporate and banking interests, are the very ones pushing the world toward collapse. They have implemented policies of massive money printing and grossly irresponsible debt-financed spending that are driving the world quickly toward the financial precipice. They have done this with full knowledge of the repercussions of their actions, for it is only out of the ashes of the destruction of the old nationalistic world system that a unified global economic and political structure can arise.
The deceit contained in James Rickards’ books and video interview is NOT to be found in his declarations of an impending collapse of the global financial system and the death of the U.S. dollar. These predictions are true. The lie that is present relates to the causes of the collapse. Jim Rickards would divert attention away from the global elite, and the institutions that will profit from the coming chaos (the IMF, the Bank of International Settlements - BIS, the World Bank, etc.), while vilifying those who are resisting the schemes of the global cabal of Luciferian elite (China, Russia, Iran, etc.). This duplicity is present from the very first screen shot of this presentation. Look again at the image I have included at the top of this post. I will repeat it here for convenience.
Notice the newsline under the image of Jim Rickards. It reads, “THE PEOPLE’S LIBERATION ARMY OF CHINA IS SECRETLY SMUGGLING GOLD.” Do you perceive the thought control employed in this statement? If there was a report of America, the Federal Reserve, or the World Bank purchasing gold to hold in reserve, you can be certain that it would not be described as “smuggling,” nor would the emphasis be placed upon the military’s role in transporting or safeguarding the gold. This statement fosters the perception that China is involved in something illegal and underhanded. This is not true. It is the right of any sovereign nation to purchase and stockpile gold. These double standards are employed continuously by the global media, for the media is owned by the same people who have sold themselves to do the will of Satan by destroying the old world order to create a new world order under a single political system.
James Rickards 2011 book Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crisis propounds the false argument that the coming demise of the American dollar will be the result of economic warfare carried out by the enemies of America. Specifically, China, Russia, and Iran, all of whom are resisting the push to relinquish their national sovereignty and to bow to the global money trust, are being painted as the cause of America’s money woes, and a direct threat to the average American’s life of prosperity. Nothing could be further from the truth. The true enemies of the people are much closer to home. They sit on the boards of the twelve regional Federal Reserve Banks throughout America. They occupy political offices in Washington D.C., and in the statehouses across America. They are the one’s who have run up trillions of dollars of debt, bailing out the too-big-to-fail banks and financial institutions, protecting the criminals of Wall Street and Fleet Street from financial loss while saddling the taxpayers with an onerous burden that can never be repaid.
(If you have not read it, I recommend to you the post titled With Malice and Forethought.)
Throughout the video James Rickards continually describes China, Russia and Iran as the enemies of the American people. Following are a few of his statements.
One of the key flashpoints we're looking at is foreign ownership of U.S. government debt. Now, this is a very important thing to understand. We all know that the Treasury has issued over $17 trillion worth of debt, the question is who buys it? A lot of U.S. debt is owned by foreigners. Who owns it?
China, Russia, other countries...
Countries that are not necessarily our friends. But they can dump it when they want to...
We talked earlier about the project I did for the CIA… Project Prophecy. And we said, you can see not only market action, but rivals, enemies, terrorists and others, operating in financial markets. So, we all know that Russia invaded Crimea in the spring of 2014.
Let's say you're Putin. You know you're going to invade Crimea. You can expect U.S. financial sanctions. So what do you do? You basically mitigate the impact of the sanctions, start dumping treasuries in advance so that when you make your move and the Treasury tries to come against you, you've insulated yourself. So go back and look at October 2013, here's Russia dumping Treasuries month after month.
Russia Attacking Our Treasury Market
That was a clear signal that they were getting ready to do something… To engage in financial warfare against the United States. But guess what? It's worse than that.
China Attacking Our Treasury Market
We know the Russians and Chinese are working together. So is it any surprise that when the Russians started dumping… The Chinese started dumping also?
The bias in these statements is readily apparent to any who care to test these claims. Look at the last graphic above, the one titled “China Attacking Our Treasury Market.” The bar graphs are highly biased to make it appear as if China is involved in massive dumping of U.S. Treasuries. Yet, the figures tell a different story. China owned more U.S. Treasuries in March of 2014 that it did in August of 2013. Nor are the swings as large as the graphic would indicate, for only the tops of the bar lines are shown. It is the same as if there was a bar that was 132 inches tall, but you only showed the top 8 inches. This represents only 6% of the actual height of the bar. 94% of the bar is hidden, remaining off the image. Doing the math, we see that from the high on November 2013 to the low on March of 2014, the Chinese sold only 3.7% of their overall U.S. Treasury holdings. This is hardly dumping, nor does it equate to the economic warfare that China is being accused of. Furthermore, Treasuries are an investment. It is common for nations to both buy and sell U.S. Treasuries. If the U.S. is to characterize every sale of their treasuries as economic warfare, or an attack against the United States, then every nation in the world, including the U.S. itself, is guilty of economic warfare against America.
The same bias and deception is present in the description of Russia selling U.S. Treasuries. Consider the following words spoken by Jim Rickards.
“we said, you can see not only market action, but rivals, enemies, terrorists and others, operating in financial markets. So, we all know that Russia invaded Crimea in the spring of 2014.”
Notice how Russia is mentioned by name immediately after the words “rivals, enemies, terrorists, and others.” This is guilt by association. Russia has since the break-up of the Soviet Union been a welcome trading partner with America and Europe. She is the leading supplier of oil and natural gas to many NATO countries. She has solicited large contracts with European nations, such as the construction of the two Mistral ships by France at a cost of more than a billion Euros. It was not Russia that reneged on this deal, or proved itself treacherous in violating contractual terms. It was France, under pressure from the United States.
It is also disingenuous to describe Russia’s accession of Crimea as an invasion. The population of Crimea according to the 2001 census is 58.5% Russian. This census was conducted by the Ukrainian government. Their own census revealed that Russians outnumbered Ukranians in Crimea by more than 2 to 1. In Sevastopol, the primary city of Crimea, and the location of a large Russian naval base, the balance of Russians is even greater as 70% of the city identify as Russians. It is little to be wondered at, that when a national referendum was held, the vast majority of the population of Crimea voted to align themselves with Russia. 97% of the population of Crimea speak Russian as their main language. Rather than it being accurate to declare Russia as having “invaded” Crimea, the Russians have been there all along.
Why then all the duplicity and deception? The global elite need to vilify Russia, China, Iran, and any other nation opposed to the loss of their national sovereignty and economic independence. They want to cast these nations as the enemies of Americans and the free world when in fact it is the global elite, the bankers and corporate rulers, in league with their political cronies in the U.S. Congress and the White House, who are working to bring forth the destruction of the U.S. dollar and the American middle class. Their plan is to globalize poverty so that the world is reduced to two classes: the Masters and the Serfs.

I will add this statement for those who have not read my earlier blog post that addressed this subject. There are numerous statements in the video that disparage the Federal Reserve. This may give the appearance that Jim Rickards is actually antagonistic toward the global elite, rather than being one of their agents of disinformation. One aspect of the current schemes of the global elite is that in order to establish a single financial system over the entire world, they must destroy their own creations which have in the past worked very well for them. They are quite willing to denigrate the policies of their own institutions such as the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England in order to move to the next level in their plans which is to establish a single, worldwide banking system. They will even use the people of the nations to cry out against the failed policies of the national and regional banking institutions, and to demand that a global caretaker be set-up that will bring an end to nationalistic banking practices that pit one people against another.
If we sort through all the disinformation in this video, and in Jim Rickards’ best selling books, we are left with the evidence that America and the world are swiftly heading toward an economic collapse. To quote this video, “The end game could be a nightmarish scenario, where the world falls into an extended period of global anarchy.” It is further stated that “the bedlam could begin within the next six months.” The video was posted online in October, which would place the possible beginning of these events around April or May of 2015.
This past weekend I was blessed to be visited by Joe Boes, a brother in Christ from the Atlanta area. He had not seen this video, nor was he aware of Jim Rickards’ claims. Nevertheless, he shared with me that he anticipated that America could begin experiencing severe shaking around the time of Passover 2015. Passover week runs from April 3-11, 2015. There will also be a total lunar eclipse, a blood moon, that occurs on April 4th, 2015. This will be the 3rd blood moon of a tetrad of blood moons that all occur on Hebrew Feast days in 2014-2015. The final blood moon of this tetrad will occur on the Feast of Tabernacles, September 28th, 2015.
Adding to the unusual nature of this tetrad of blood moons, all of them will be visible from all, or parts, of the United States. See the following article on NASA’s website.
This final blood moon follows two weeks after the solar eclipse that ends the Shemitah year on September 13th, 2015. Yahweh has often used signs in the heavens to announce events occurring upon the earth.
And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars and upon the earth, dismay among nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world...
I want to be clear by stating that I have not received a word of revelation from Yahweh about the timing of specific events. He has not told me that anything specific will occur on this upcoming Passover, or by the final day of this present Shemitah year. At the same time, I do not believe such a word is required in order to know the hour is late and the people of God need to be standing in readiness, both spiritually, and physically. I have been pressing into the Father with much focus and deliberation in recent months to inquire of Yahweh about what is coming upon the earth and what His people need to do to prepare. Since I have been doing so, numerous testimonies have come across my path, such as Jonathan Cahn’s recent book The Mystery of the Shemitah. I believe Yahweh has raised Jonathan Cahn up at this time as a prophet to His people and to the nations. He has had an unusual access even to those who occupy the positions of power and authority in this nation. Jonathan Cahn’s speech at the Presidential Inaugural events of February 2013 is remarkable in its boldness and clear declarations that this nation is under the judgment of Yahweh.
Even the “prophetic” pronouncements of a CIA insider like Jim Rickards can be taken as evidence that the world is heading for cataclysmic days. If we pare away all of the disinformation and propaganda from his presentation, we are left to ask, “Why are the global elite preparing the populace at this time to assign blame for a global economic meltdown on nations such as Russia, China, and Iran? Do these actions indicate that the death of the dollar is near at hand? If so, what will be the repercussions for the people of God who live in America and the nations?”
I have shared previously that Yahweh has been guiding me to complete my physical preparations at this time. I have already been preparing myself spiritually, having been looking to Yahweh alone for my provision, protection, and guidance for the past 15 years. Since 2008 I have had no employment, looking solely to Yahweh for provision. He has been, and continues to be, faithful. His Son declared:
“For this reason I say to you, do not be anxious for your life, as to what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor for your body, as to what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single cubit to his life's span? And why are you anxious about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory did not clothe himself like one of these. But if God so arrays the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more do so for you, O men of little faith? Do not be anxious then, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'With what shall we clothe ourselves?' For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Brothers and sisters, let me explain this matter to you. Some read the passage above and conclude that they need not make any preparations for the coming days. They believe Yahweh will manifest His provision for them. I wonder at the boldness of such ones, for among many who take this position, they are not now, nor have they ever, lived in total dependence upon Yahweh for their provision, protection, and guidance. For many, I believe their confidence in Yahweh is feigned, and is merely an excuse for their lack of preparation. Some, not wishing to appear as foolish in the eyes of those who do not see danger approaching, are reluctant to make substantial lifestyle changes.
Some are sincere, however, in believing it would be a demonstration of a lack of faith to prepare. They equate the words “do not be anxious for tomorrow,” with “do nothing to prepare for tomorrow.” If we look at the whole counsel of Scriptures, we can see that there are times when Yahweh specifically instructs His people to take thought for coming days, and to act to prepare for what is coming. Following is one example of this occurring in the book of Acts.
Now at this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. And one of them named Agabus stood up and began to indicate by the Spirit that there would certainly be a great famine all over the world. And this took place in the reign of Claudius. And in the proportion that any of the disciples had means, each of them determined to send a contribution for the relief of the brethren living in Judea. And this they did, sending it in charge of Barnabas and Saul to the elders.
This event is not unlike the account of Joseph in Egypt. Some may even see the connection in the fact that Barnabas was the nickname given to a disciple of Christ whose actual name was Joseph (Acts 4:36). Yahweh gave Joseph understanding of Pharaoh’s dreams indicating that 7 years of great prosperity were coming which would be followed by 7 years of great famine. Yahweh revealed this knowledge to Joseph so that he could fulfill a type of Christ by preserving a remnant alive.
For the famine has been in the land these two years, and there are still five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting. And God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant in the earth, and to keep you alive by a great deliverance.
Brothers and sisters, I believe Yahweh has His Joseph’s today who are sounding the alarm. They are providing the understanding of the visions, signs, and parables Yahweh is sending upon the earth to warn of what is coming. He is disclosing this information so that His people might stand in readiness spiritually and physically.
I have for years been speaking of the need to abandon one’s life wholly to the leading of the Holy Spirit, to learn to move at His impulse, being guided by His voice, obedient even in suffering. My own life has been a testimony and example of such a life. At the same time, I have been exhorting the people of God to press into the Father to know whether He would have them to make preparations for the days ahead. What He speaks to each individual will vary. We all need to hear His voice and respond with obedience.
What I am advocating is NOT being anxious about tomorrow. If we obey God, and entrust our lives to His care, doing all He commands us to do, we have no need to be anxious. We can approach days of distress with confidence, knowing that the God who has been faithful yesterday and today will also be faithful tomorrow. If we are following His guidance, doing what He commands, what have we to fear?
I believe with great conviction, however, that the majority of those who name the name of Christ are not walking in obedience to God. They are not living a life surrendered to the leading of the Holy Spirit. They are not being guided by Yahweh in their actions. They are not experiencing a daily dependence upon Him. They have no history of having cast their lives wholly over into His care whereby they might prove His faithfulness. Such ones will be like the young woman named Christian Faith who died of fear at a horror theme park this past October.
Don’t allow this to be merely one more online article that you read, only to turn away and take no action. The hour is late. You need to prepare your heart now for those things to come.
A brother in Christ (thanks Carl) who reads my blog posts, recently traveled to Philadelphia. He made it a point to go to Pier 82 and see the derelict SS United States that is docked there. One of the best vantage points is the Ikea store across the street. He took a number of photos, including a screen shot of a notice taped to the store window.
