This May Be The Beginning Of The Great Financial Reckoning

For the past several years, the government has always been able to rely on the usual suspects to loan them money and buy up all the debt, namely– the Federal Reserve, the Chinese, and the Japanese. Those three alone have loaned trillions of dollars to the US government since the end of the financial crisis. The Federal Reserve in particular, through its “Quantitative Easing” programs, was on an all-out binge, buying up every long-dated Treasury Bond it could find, like some sort of junkie debt addict. And both Chinese and Japanese holdings of US government debt now exceed $1 trillion each, more than double what they were before the 2008 crisis. But now each of those three lenders is out of the game. The Federal Reserve has formally ended its Quantitative Easing program. In other words, the Fed has said it will no longer conjure money out of thin […] Read More

Geopolitical Tensions Are Designed To Distract The Public From Economic Decline

This article by Brandon Smith was originally published at Alt-Market.com. Tracking geopolitical and fiscal developments over the past several years is a bit like watching a slow motion train wreck; you know exactly what the consequences of the events will be, you try to warn people as much as possible, but, ultimately, you cannot reverse the disaster. The disaster has for all intents and purposes already happened. What we are witnessing is the aftermath as a forgone conclusion. This is why whenever someone asks me as an economic and political analyst “when the collapse is going to happen,” I have to shake my head in bewilderment. The “collapse” is here now. It is done. It is a historical fact. It’s just that not many people have the eyes to see it yet, primarily because they are hyper-focused on all the wrong things. For many centuries now, elitists in power […] Read More

Hidden by the Elite: The Occult Meaning of the ‘Three Wise Monkeys’

The “Three Wise Monkeys” (also called the “Three Mystic Apes”) is a sacred ancient Japanese icon whose original meaning is intentionally being hidden by the Elite.  Knowing the truth of the symbol’s age-old directive of “See no Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil ” can empower you in ways you never thought possible and change your life forever. In this article, we’ll uncover the symbol’s authentic ancient meaning, and we’ll see why this meaning is intentionally being covered up. If you think you know the meaning of the Three Wise Monkeys symbol, maybe you better think again. A 17th century carving over a door of the famous Toshogu shrine in Nikko, Japan We’re taught by the Elite (i.e., the mass media and their corporate sponsors) that it stands for feigning ignorance to the misconduct of others rather than exposing their misconduct: “In the Western world the phrase is […] Read More

America’s Number One Enemy: The Federal Reserve

The Birth of Legal Counterfeiting The FED is a central bank. Central banks are supposed to implement a country’s fiscal policies. They monitor commercial banks to ensure that they maintain sufficient assets, like cash, so as to remain solvent and stable. Central banks also do business, such as currency exchanges and gold transactions, with other central banks. In theory, a central bank should be good for a country, and they might be if it wasn’t for the fact that they are not owned or controlled by the government of the country they are serving. Private central banks, including our FED, operate not in the interest of the public good but for profit. There have been three central banks in our nation’s history. The first two, while deceptive and fraudulent, pale in comparison to the scope and size of the fraud being perpetrated by our current FED. What they all […] Read More

Robert Kiyosaki And Harry Dent Warn That Financial Armageddon Is Imminent

The following report was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog Financial experts Robert Kiyosaki and Harry Dent are both warning that the next major economic crash is in our very near future.  Dent is projecting that the Dow will fall to “5,500 to 6,000 by late 2017″, and Kiyosaki actually originally projected that a great crash was coming in 2016 all the way back in 2002.  Of course we don’t exactly have to wait for things to get bad.  The truth is that things are not really very good at the moment by any stretch of the imagination.  Approximately one-third of all Americans don’t make enough money to even cover the basic necessities, 23 percent of adults in their prime working years are not employed, and corporate debt defaults have exploded to the highest level that we have seen since the last financial crisis.  But […] Read More

The Economic Crash of 2016 Has Begun

Shoppers in Tokyo The financial crash is already happening and the central banks are visibly panicking, they are now resorting to negative interest rates for the first time! They strongly believe that with this scheme, the middlemen lenders would be forced to lend more to their clients to spur economic growth. Otherwise, they will be charged for parking their money with the central bank. Bank of Japan, in a Surprise, Adopts Negative Interest Rate for the First Time The Japanese government has tried numerous stimulus measures, hoping to increase spending and spur inflation. Yuya Shino/ReutersAs Japan’s economic doldrums have lingered, its leaders have tried a number of tricks over the years, from increasing government spending to flooding the financial system with cash. With the global economy looking increasingly fragile, Japan is now taking a more aggressive step by cutting interest rates below zero on Friday. The policy — which […] 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

This Is Why They Are Militarizing: ‘The World Will Become Baltimore When People Realize They Cannot Acquire Basic Resources’

No matter the negative economic news or weak corporate earnings, stock markets continue to reach news highs and mainstream media pundits tow the party line. But how is this possible, given that tens of millions are out of the workforce, on food stamps and completely broke? The answer, according to Gregory Mannarino, is quite simple. The world’s central banks and governments have been left with no other option. They are throwing absolutely everything they can at the problem in an effort to keep the system propped up for as long as possible. But as Mannarino notes in his recent interview with Greg Hunter’s USA Watchdog, it’s nothing more than a setup that will leave most of the world’s population, especially the middle class in first-world countries, totally wiped out and impoverished. The end result will be nothing short of widespread civil unrest, violence and bloodshed as people begin to […] Read More

Madness Coming To Gold Market: “There Are Thirty to Fifty Owners For Each Ounce of Gold That’s Out There”

Though the price of gold has seen a significant drop over the last two years from it’s all time highs of about $1900 per ounce, many experts and analysts believe that western central banks and their colleagues at major financial institutions have been manipulating the price. The rampant manipulation is believed to stem, in part, from the formerly Rothschild owned London Gold Fix, an organization made up of five large banks that make a daily determination of what the price of gold should be. It is this unilateral control by western banks that recently prompted the Chinese to create their own Shanghai Gold Exchange. What separates the two is that the Chinese will be using their currency, the Yuan, as the reserve rather than the U.S. Dollar. Moreover, unlike their European counterparts, the Chinese will be trading in actual physical dollars. The Daily Coin explains: The product is gold. When gold is bought […] Read More

“Massive Headache”: Rising Dollar Threating Trade and $74 Trillion Derivative Tsunami

This article was graciously contributed by Michael Snyder via his Economic Collapse blog. Editor’s Note: Many have warned that a silent but ongoing global currency war is underway. Call it a reevaluation or shift if you like. The Euro is falling fast, in large part due to Greece’s woes, and is headed towards parity with the dollar and beyond. The stronger dollar means pain for the American export market – some 40% of U.S. business – and creates a difficult, and perhaps impossible, climate for foreign governments to repay debts and other obligations, which become more expensive under a stronger dollar, in which many are denominated. Market pains and suffering could spread pretty rapidly if things got out of control and sequenced towards destruction. Does this create a window for China’s intent to offer the next global currency? That remains to be seen, but China’s intentions are clear enough […] Read More

Nomi Prins: The Sinister Evolution Of Our Modern Banking System

By Adam Taggart of PeakProsperity Nomi Prins: The Sinister Evolution Of Our Modern Banking System I quit Wall Street and decided that it was time to talk more about what was going on inside it, as it had changed. It had become far more sinister and far more dangerous. ~ Nomi Prins Today, the ‘revolving door’ connecting our political and financial systems is evident to anyone with eyes. But this entwined relationship between Washington DC and Wall Street is nothing new, predating even the formation of the Federal Reserve. To chronicle the evolution to where we find ourselves today, we welcome Nomi Prins, Wall Street veteran turned financial industry reformist, and author of the excellent expose All The Presidents Bankers. In this well-detailed interview, Nomi goes into depth of the rationale and process behind the creation of the Federal Reserve, and more important, how its mandate — and the […] Read More
