Will the Fed Hesitate? “Everything is Too Vulnerable” for Rate Change, Says Ron Paul

The system is teetering on edge, and nearly everyone in the financial sector is waiting for one decision – will the Fed finally raise rates? Ron Paul has made a bold prediction that the Federal Reserve likely will NOT raise interest rates, something which would have enormous consequences in the market, because it is hesitant to do so with so many negative risk factors the market already faces. Fed Chair Janet Yellen – and most in the financial sector – know how much is impinging upon the possible decision to raise rates after years and years of quantitative easing have pushed the limits of stimulating the economy. According to CNBC: By Paul’s reasoning, the Fed is too scared to raise interest rates in the middle of an already weak recovery and risk sending the U.S. economy back into recession, or worse… The Fed chief “does not want to be […] Read More

Signs Of Financial Turmoil Are Brewing In Europe, China And The United States

Submitted by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog, As we move toward the second half of 2015, signs of financial turmoil are appearing all over the globe.  In Greece, a full blown bank run is happening right now.  Approximately 2 billion euros were pulled out of Greek banks in just the past three days, Barclays says that capital controls are “imminent” unless a debt deal is struck, and there are reports that preparations are being made for a “bank holiday” in Greece.  Meanwhile, Chinese stocks are absolutely crashing.  The Shanghai Composite Index was down more than 13 percent this week alone.  That was the largest one week decline since the collapse of Lehman Brothers.  In the U.S., stocks aren’t crashing yet, but we just witnessed one of the largest one week outflows of capital from the bond markets that we have ever witnessed.  Slowly but surely, we are […] Read More

“Cornering The Earth” – How The Rothschilds “Controlled At Least One Third Of Global Wealth” Over 100 Years Ago

One week ago we presented the prophetic work of Alfred Owen Crozier who in 1912 penned “U.S. Money vs Corporation Currency” in which, together with 30 illustrations that captured Wall Street precisely as it would turn out some 103 later year, he explained why the the “Aldrich Plan” proposal, infamously crafted in secrecy by a small group of bankers and their bought politicians on Jekyll Island to establish a National Reserve Association, a money printing-predecessor to the Federal Reserve, would lead to untold pain, suffering ans war. The Aldrich Plan was defeated only to bring the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, and the most deadly 30-year period of warfare in human history. And while we urge everyone to read the Crozier’s book for its profound insight, and its painful reminder that even in the “New Normal” there is absolutely nothing new, as everything that has happened was foretold over […] Read More

Ali and Frazier, Laurel and Hardy, Mayweather and Pacquiao, Liesman and Santelli, and now Schiff and Maloney. Peter and Mike join clash of the titan-like to discuss their investment strategies and expose the charts the government doesn’t want you to seeas “people like Bernanke are taken seriously still and the people that did predict [the crisis] are dismissed as lunatics half the time.” The wide-reaching conversation covers everything from gold and stocks to The Fed and The Dollar – Bernanke “took the coward’s way out because all he did was exacerbate the problems to postpone the day of reckoning.” The air is coming out of the bubble, they warn, “Bernanke and Greenspan have absolutely destroyed America. People don’t realize what is coming…” Full interview here: Full transcript below: Mike: I was in Puerto Rico a little while back and Peter Schiff invited me over to his house and we […] Read More

(Big Fat Schocker) Claim: ‘Fed Policy Helps Rich Get Richer’

According to some reality-smashing journalism coming out of NBC, the Federal Reserve’s policies are creating “economic distortions” that result in transfers of wealth to, you guessed it, the wealthy. “The global economy is witnessing a massive redistribution of wealth and income with borrowers, equity shareholders and short-term investors benefiting; and savers, bondholders and longer-term investors being placed at risk,” wrote Rieder, chief investment officer of BlackRock’s Fundamental Fixed Income division and co-head of Americas Fixed Income. The wealth gap in this country is already the largest it has ever been in recorded history and it just continues to widen. Gee. I wonder why. Last year, Fed Chair Janet Yellen even admitted America is an oligarchy. Meanwhile, while we all have a pretty good idea who owns the Fed, have fun trying to get an answer to that question or really any solid idea who the Fed is ultimately accountable […] Read More

Coming for Your Funds: Supremes “Justify Seizure of Pension Funds to PROTECT Pensioners”

This article was originally published by Paul Joseph Watson at Infowars.com. Editor’s Note: Incredibly, and in direct defiance of any sane logic, a recent Supreme Court decision has justified “government seizure of private pension funds to protect pensioners,” according to famed economist Martin Armstrong. This unsettling decision puts 401ks and plenty of other funds in the crosshairs. How that can be considered consumer protection, or government shepherding is unclear, if not unfathomable. Nonetheless, the rationale is in place – so beware. It has long since been legalized for Wall Street equity firms to gamble away pensions – including public pensions for states like California – through derivatives, while it has long since been legalized for the Federal Reserve to literally grow paper on trees, hand out free candy to sugar addicts and make money (for those at the top) so cheap its practically free – all driving down the […] 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

The Rockefellers and Rothschilds “fused” while no one was looking

Lord Jacob Rothschild on the left, David Rockefeller to the right Finally revealed by Vanity Fair and unbeknownst to everyone aside from insiders, the Rockefeller family and Rothschild family have merged as part of a secretive 2012 deal. The Rockefellers (who changed their name from Rockenfelder before coming to the US in the 1800s) were founders of the Standard Oil Company in 1870 and a wealth-management firm in 1882 and have been influencing many walks of life for a long time. David Rockefeller (son of the notorious banker John D. Rockefeller) is the current patriarch of the Rockefeller family. It was revealed in his personal memoir; that David admitted to being “guilty” and “proud” of an “international conspiracy” against US sovereignty. We Are Change were one of the first to confront him about this admitted international manipulation: The Rothschilds (whose name means “red-shield”) have been around for at least […] Read More

“Income Tax Is Government Theft” and IRS Is a Lawless Thief

Yes, it is once again tax time. Chances are there have been a few grumblings this time a year in your home or one nearby concerning everyone’s favorite villain – the IRS. From the missing emails of Lois Lerner and using the tax system to target Tea Party protesters to ever increasing debt loads due to expanding government, crony capitalism and general rampant corruption, few if anyone beliefs the tax authority is a beneficial institution. PJ Media issued a three-part series – a Death by Taxes video panel hosted by Bill Whittle wherein he interviews the notorious tax reformer Grover Norquist as well as Curtis Dubay and Terry Jones on the systematic problems of the progressive income tax, and how it has come to so much ruin. The program is well worth watching. It addresses the underlying questions of IRS taxation as sanctioned government theft. In the opening minutes, […] Read More
