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

Clamp Down on Cash Is the Ultimate Surveillance State: “Citizens Shouldn’t Be Under General Suspicion”

The war on cash is more than just a currency war to  clamp everyone down on the electric grid. It is also a war on your privacy, and the nail in the coffin for the free market of low level transactions. Soon, restrictions on cash will become so severe that even spending $100 will arouse suspicion, despite the constant inflation on the value of such a denomination. One day, physical currency may become obsolete. When that day comes, they will know everything you do. Conducting transactions in anything but digital creds will be not only increasingly difficult, but seen as outright criminal behavior. It might even make you a terrorist. Don Quijones argues on Wolf Street: There are two sides in the global war against cash. On one side are many of the world’s governments, central banks, fintech firms, banks, credit card companies, telecommunication behemoths, financial institutions, large retailers, etc. […] 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

When Will America Jail Their Banksters?

The most dramatic contrast in the rule of law against the architects of financial theft can be seen in the way America protects their banksters and the accountability that Iceland imposed on their financial crooks. The fact that the orthodox financial press refuses to cover the incarceration of Iceland’s Bankers Face 74 Years in Prison While US Banks Profit After Your Bailout, is clear proof who really controls the political and economic institutions in the United States. As for the courts, America has long ago shredded the rule of law in this country. “Five top bankers from Iceland’s two largest banks — Landsbankinn and Kaupþing — were found guilty of embezzlement, market manipulation, and breach of fiduciary duties. Though the country’s maximum penalty for financial crimes currently stands at six years, the Supreme Court is currently hearing arguments to extend the limit. Most of those convicted have so far […] Read More

Masters Of Metal: China, The Rothschild Fix, And The “New World Currency”

Lies, Damned Lies, and Forensic History. As regular consumers of alternative media have likely noticed, China’s voracious appetite for gold has been reported on ad nauseam in the wake of the 2008 Depression. Endless geopolitical and economic analysts have mused about the implications of Chinese gold accumulation, with most concluding (perhaps prematurely) that some form of gold-backed Yuan is on the horizon. Some extend this scenario further, optimistically declaring that the BRICS NDB (New Development Bank) and AIIB (Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank), led by China, will usher in a “New Golden Era” of progress and prosperity, spelling the end of the Western model of Central Banking tyranny. The reason for this transfer of precious metals from West to East by the Anglo-American Establishment, these pundits prognosticate, is a simple and tragic combination of incompetence and malfeasance. The aged and corrupt West must end, and in the wake of its destruction, the Phoenix of […] Read More

WikiLeaks publishes the Healthcare Annex to the secret draft “Transparency” Chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)

WikiLeaks publishes the Healthcare Annex to the secret draft “Transparency” Chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) Today, Wednesday 10 June 2015, WikiLeaks publishes the Healthcare Annex to the secret draft “Transparency” Chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP), along with each country’s negotiating position. The Healthcare Annex seeks to regulate state schemes for medicines and medical devices. It forces healthcare authorities to give big pharmaceutical companies more information about national decisions on public access to medicine, and grants corporations greater powers to challenge decisions they perceive as harmful to their interests. Expert policy analysis, published by WikiLeaks today, shows that the Annex appears to be designed to cripple New Zealand’s strong public healthcare programme and to inhibit the adoption of similar programmes in developing countries. The Annex will also tie the hands of the US Congress in its ability to pursue reforms of the Medicare programme. https://wikileaks.org/tpp/healthcare/ WikiLeaks […] Read More

How Banks Create and Destroy Money

The Money Lenders by  Quentin Metsys – 1466 “I’m just a banker do doing God’s work.”  Lloyd Blankfein Much has been said about both the moral hazard of banks being bailed out and people bailing out of mortgages. The major question raised was, would this ‘bailout’ contagion infect the integrity of our economic and political system?  But far more interesting and much less discussed are the mechanics of modern banking and their moral implications. During the housing boom trillions were loaned out in mortgages creating a housing bubble and the eventual collapse of the financial markets. But where did all that money come from? The vast majority of people think that banks borrow money from the Fed or depositors at one rate, lend it at another and make a spread. This concept is completely false. Banks create money, loan it out, make their margin through compound interest, and destroy […] Read More

Matt Taibbi: World’s Largest Banks Admit to Massive Global Financial Crimes, But Escape Jail (Again)

This is about as serious a financial crime as you can possibly get, says the Rolling Stone journalist. In an interview with Democracy Now!, Rolling Stone journalist Matt Taibbi spoke about the recent news surrounding the five major banks – Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Barclays, Royal Bank of Scotland and UBS – who pled guilty to rigging the price of foreign currencies and interest rates. Their fines amount up to more than $5 billion. “They were monkeying around with the prices of every currency on Earth,” Taibbi told Amy Goodman. “So, if you can imagine that anybody who has money, which basically includes anybody who’s breathing on the planet, all of those people were affected by this activity. So if you have dollars in your pocket, they were monkeying around with the prices of dollars versus euros, so you might have had more or less money fractionally, depending on all […] Read More

These five global banks are paying $5.7 billion in fines over rate rigging

Source: Forbes Five of the world’s largest banks, including JPMorgan Chase & Co and Citigroup Inc, were fined roughly $5.7 billion, and four of them pleaded guilty to U.S. criminal charges over manipulation of foreign exchange rates, authorities said on Wednesday. A fifth bank, UBS AG, will plead guilty to rigging benchmark interest rates, the U.S. Justice Department said. U.S. banks JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup will pay $550 million and $925 million in criminal fines, respectively, as part of their guilty pleas. British banks Barclays Plc will pay $650 million in criminal penalties and Royal Bank of Scotland Plc $395 million. Each will plead guilty to one felony count of conspiring to fix prices and rig bids for U.S. dollars and euros in the foreign exchange spot market. Euro dollar traders at four of the banks described themselves as members of “The Cartel” and used an electronic chat room […] Read More

The Banksters War On Cash

Once upon a time, the famous criminal Willie Sutton was asked why he robbed banks, and his response was simple, eloquent, and humorous: “Because that’s where the money is.” Well, soon that adage may be proven untrue. What exactly is the meaning of legal tender?  In order to place money in its proper perspective, examine what the U.S. Treasury says. “The pertinent portion of law that applies to your question is the Coinage Act of 1965, specifically Section 31 U.S.C. 5103, entitled “Legal tender,” which states: “United States coins and currency (including Federal reserve notes and circulating notes of Federal reserve banks and national banks) are legal tender for all debts, public charges, taxes, and dues.” Now one might reasonably expect that conducting cash transactions would be guaranteed by the full weight and protection of the Federal Government. Such an assumption would be false, since the Banksters operate as a power beyond the law. The […] Read More

Inside the Clintons’ Cozy Relationship With the Big Banks

Whatever her populist pitch may be in the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton has not publicly condemned Wall Street. To stay on top of important articles like these, sign up to receive the latest updates from TomDispatch.com  here. [This piece has been adapted and updated by Nomi Prins from chapters 18 and 19 of her book  All the Presidents’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power, just out in paperback (Nation Books).] The past, especially the political past, doesn’t just provide clues to the present. In the realm of the presidency and Wall Street, it provides an ongoing pathway for political-financial relationships and policies that remain a threat to the American economy going forward. When Hillary Clinton video-announced her bid for the Oval Office, she claimed she wanted to be a “champion” for the American people. Since then, she has attempted to recast herself as a populist and distance herself from some of […] Read More

Cash on Lockdown: Bankers “Want Badly to Charge YOU Interest for Depositing YOUR Funds”

Cash is quickly becoming a liability. SHTF has been closely following the recent calls from Wall Street to ban cash and implement a system that would force everyone to operate on the grid, even as interest rates have hit negative and customers are actually charged for keeping money in the bank. For most observers, negative interest rates signals a bizarre and unsustainable economic landscape, but for those calling the shots, the negative rates are a necessary by-products of capital injections by the Federal Reserve over the course of its quantitative easing operations. The biggest problem with these negative rates – besides the fact that they defy logic and send the wrong signals to investors – is that there is every reason to withdraw cash and stash it, rather than be charged to keep deposits in the bank. But that’s exactly what the system wants to FORCE you to do. […] Read More

They Are Slowly Making Cash Illegal

The move to a cashless society won’t happen overnight.  Instead, it is being implemented very slowly and systematically in a series of incremental steps.  All over the planet, governments are starting to place restrictions on the use of cash for security reasons.  As citizens, we are being told that this is being done to thwart criminals, terrorists, drug runners, money launderers and tax evaders.  Other forms of payment are much easier for governments to track, and so they very much prefer them.  But we are rapidly getting to the point where the use of cash is considered to be a “suspicious activity” all by itself.  These days, if you pay a hotel bill with cash or if you pay for several hundred dollars worth of goods at a store with cash you are probably going to get looked at funny.  You see, the truth is that we have already […] Read More
