Bank at the Heart of EVERY BANKING SCANDAL Issues Major Warning

Simon Black is keeping close tabs on the bank that gets plenty of bail-outs, favoritism, and key influence of critical government cabinet appointments worldwide. Now, the “World’s most powerful bank” has issued a major warning… By Simon Black In 1869, a 48-year old Jewish immigrant from the tiny village of Trappstadt in Germany’s Bavaria region hung a shingle outside of his small office in lower Manhattan to officially launch his new business. His name was Marcus Goldman, and the business he started, what’s now known as Goldman Sachs, has become the preeminent investment bank in the world with nearly $1 trillion in assets. They didn’t get there by winning any popularity contests. Goldman Sachs has been at the heart of nearly every major banking scandal in recent history. The company has settled lawsuits on countless charges, ranging from exchange rate manipulation, stock price manipulation, demanding bribes from their own clients, […] Read More

The Bankster Families and the History of Money

Tell someone you are going to a convention of accountants and you might get a few yawns, yet money and how it works is probably one of the most interesting things on earth.  It is fascinating and almost magical how money appeared on our planet. Unlike most developments we enjoy, which can be traced back to a source, civilisation or inventor, money appeared in places then unconnected all over the world in a remarkably simular way. Consider the American Indians using Wampum, West Africans trading in decorative metallic objects called Manillas and the Fijians economy based on whales teeth, some of which are still legal tender; add to that shells, amber, ivory, decorative feathers, cattle including oxen & pigs, a large number of stones including jade and quartz which have all been used for trade across the world, and we get a taste of the variety of accepted currency.

The Top 25 U.S. Banks Have 222 Trillion Dollars Of Exposure To Derivatives

By Michael Snyder The recklessness of the “too big to fail” banks almost doomed them the last time around, but apparently they still haven’t learned from their past mistakes.  Today, the top 25 U.S. banks have 222 trillion dollars of exposure to derivatives.  In other words, the exposure that these banks have to derivatives contracts is approximately equivalent to the gross domestic product of the United States times twelve.  As long as stock prices continue to rise and the U.S. economy stays fairly stable, these extremely risky financial weapons of mass destruction will probably not take down our entire financial system.  But someday another major crisis will inevitably happen, and when that day arrives the devastation that these financial instruments will cause will be absolutely unprecedented. During the great financial crisis of 2008, derivatives played a starring role, and U.S. taxpayers were forced to step in and bail out […] Read More

Regaining Control of Money from the Banksters Would Solve EVERYTHING

How do we solve healthcare, immigration, our crumbling infrastructure, national debt, energy needs, and the political structure that ignores the best possible solutions for the planet? Well, there is only one answer. Civilization must regain control of money. Unless we disempower the Central Bank of every nation, civilization will continue its path of self-destruction through greenhouse gases. How can this be achieved? By restoring Real Democracy to create and control the different types of money. Humans on a global scale must dismantle Banking’s exclusive rights to create money. Eventually, this will lead to the scientific management of Earth’s resources. To arrive at this new stage of development our collective mindset must acknowledge two things. 1) The root of every social problem we encounter is due to the structure of money from Central Banking. 2) The higher educations of an MBA and MEC which support the imprisonment of humans and […] Read More

Spain Sets Massive Precedent — Charges Its Central Bankers in Court

Spain has followed Iceland’s footsteps by charging their top bankers This article by Claire Burnish originally appeared at thefreethoughtproject.com. First, Iceland, and now Spain has taken on the Big Bankers responsible for financial calamity, as the country’s highest national court charged the former head of Spain’s central bank, a market regulator, and five other banking officials over a failed bank leading to the loss of millions of euros for smaller investors. This, of course, markedly departs from the mammoth taxpayer giveaway — commonly referred to as the bailout — approved by the U.S. government ostensively to “save” the Big Banks and, albeit unstated, allow the enormous institutions to continue bilking customers without the slightest fear of penalty. Errant bankers and financiers, it would seem, typically manage to either evade actually being charged, or escape hefty fines and time behind bars. Spain’s Supreme Court last year ruled “serious inaccuracies” in information about the listing led investors to […] Read More

First Senior Bankers on the Planet Responsible for 2008 Collapse Jailed

In April, Wells Fargo & Co admitted to defrauding the United States government for nearly an entire decade, which subsequently led to the housing market collapse — and the United States punished no one. Bank of America Corp (BAC.N), Citigroup Inc (C.N), Deutsche Bank AG (DBKGn.DE) and JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N), have all previously made the same admission and settled similar federal lawsuits — again, with no one being held criminally responsible. While low-level bankers have been thrown in jail as apparent scapegoats in places like Iceland, not a single high-level CEO or officer has faced punitive criminal action — until now. On Friday, three senior Irish bankers were jailed for up to three-and-a-half years for their conspiracy to defraud investors, subsequently causing the economic collapse of 2008. According to a report in Reuters, the trio will be among the first senior bankers globally to be jailed for […] Read More

The Surprising Way to Stop Bankers From Robbing the American People

Pernicious cultural norms inside American banks and regulatory agencies crowd out basic ethics. This post originally appeared on the blog for the Institute for New Economic Thinking. Does morality have a place in the realm of banking and regulation? That it feels awkward to even raise the issue is convenient for bankers who engage in reckless and harmful activities every day without fear of punishment. Ed Kane, professor of finance at Boston College, believes it’s vital to discuss moral questions, in plain English, without abstractions. Following his own advice, he is blunt in characterizing some of the behavior in the banking industry in recent years: “Theft is a forced taking of other people’s resources,” he says. “That’s what’s going on here.” Kane urges a deep inquiry into our culture to understand why bankers so commonly get away with crimes in the United States. In 2007, just before the housing […] Read More

3 Means of Waging Personal Financial Revolution Against the Banksters

The world is enslaved to an economic system designed to create tremendous power and wealth for those who own the system, while forcing the rest of us into mathematically insurmountable debt and the stagnation, austerity and poverty that comes with it. Corrupt and patently unsustainable, the world’s currencies and financial markets are rigged, and an economic collapse is inevitable at some point. Sad but true, and the ongoing dramatic narrative of the interplay between engineered boom and engineered bust is a chief psychological tool in sustaining the popular belief that this monetary reality as the only monetary reality possible. The truth, however, is that as long as this economic reality is the reality then we will be slaves to debt economics, and the pursuit of endless growth is certain to consume everything on the planet. The good news is that the task of migrating an entire civilization from one economic system to another is so enormous that as […] Read More

Operation Disclosure: 220 Points of Fact as of May 2016

Submitted Anonymously on May 27, 2016 Nearly 450 years ago the Anglo-Saxon world banking system began with creation of the Vatican Historical Asset Trust Accounts, today known as the Global Collateral Accounts. These funds of sovereign countries were mainly backed by gold reserves of the ancient Chinese Royal Dragon Families. Certain sovereign families of Asia and Europe had pooled their assets into a series of very complex and secretive off-ledger private banking trust accounts. The monies were intended for humanitarian projects to help the world for the better, though had been fraudulently abused by a corrupt global banking system since at least the late 1600s. In 1694 this global monetary system overseen by a secretive Cabal was being run out of a central bank in England controlled by the Rothschilds family. Baron Nathan Mayer Rothschild once declared, “I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England […] Read More

Secret Banker Meeting in New York Unveils New Digital Cash System

Last month, a “secret meeting” that involved more than 100 executives from some of the biggest financial institutions in the United States was held in New York City.  During this “secret meeting“, a company known as “Chain” unveiled a technology that transforms U.S. dollars into “pure digital assets”.  Reportedly, there were representatives from Nasdaq, Citigroup, Visa, Fidelity, Fiserv and Pfizer in the room, and Chain also claims to be partnering with Capital One, State Street, and First Data.  This “revolutionary” technology is intended to completely change the way that we use money, and it would represent a major step toward a cashless society.  But if this new digital cash system is going to be so good for society, why was it unveiled during a secret meeting for Wall Street bankers?  Is there something more going on here than we are being told? None of us probably would have ever […] Read More

Top Bank Issues Cataclysmic Warning To American Can Expect (VIDEO)

By now your ears are tirelessly ringing by the repeated conversations of a coming economic crisis spoken of by top economists, alternative news sources, and your every day average joe. The talks have gotten so excessive that when one hears the term “crisis” they no longer grasp the impacts it will have when it finally does make its lasting blow. The truth is, it is going to hit, and when it does, it will have catastrophic effects on our economy.  In fact the 20th largest bank in the entire world, Royal Bank of Scotland, has just urged investors to “Sell everything” and that “2016 is going to be a cataclysmic year for the economy.” With warnings like these one can’t help but ponder the idea that the economic crisis is truly right around the corner, if not already here, especially considering the latest 1,500 drop in the DOW just […] Read More

Iceland Brings Down the Hammer on Banksters Yet Again

http://thewealthwatchman.com/iceland-brings-down-the-hammer-on-banksters-yet-again/ Taking the Gloves Off  Since the very inception of the financial crisis of 2008, many nations in the West(such as Greece, Ireland, or Cyprus) have found that they’ve lost not only financially to the banksters that caused it, but even more sadly, they’ve found that they’ve lost their freedoms and political sovereignty as well.  This loss of freedom has been the worst blow of all, for a man can lose his wealth, and still have all the things needed for a good life.  Freedom though, once lost, deprives a man of his very dignity, and can be extraordinarily hard to win back. However, while we’ve had to endure heart-wrenching stories of countries being made into totally humiliated puppet-states of the banksters…there have been a few success stories of peoples maintaining their freedom & dignity after the banking crisis, and even dealing a mighty blow to the bankers.  One such heartening exception has been […] Read More
