    • If you look at the way they have behaved from the very first day [the Syriza government] assumed power,” he continued, “close inspection will reveal… [that] they were far more interested in humiliating this government and overthrowing it—or at least making sure it overthrows itself in terms of its policies—then coming to an agreement that would ensure they would get most of their money back.”

      These two statements from Varoufakis made it clear that the PM was threatened and not a traitor as being reported in the alternative media. It seems as if democracy is lost in Greece.

    • Varoufakis introduced capital controls including locking people out of their safety deposit boxes THEN he resigned. So HE put people in potentially grave danger. If he had announced that he will resign because he refuses to implement capital controls then he would be a hero, but in reality he’s another charlatan.

It’s what is not seen under the surface that is most dangerous and likely to materialize very rapidly towards the end.

    • He’s got a great financial mind. The more they mock him on CNBC the smarter he looks.

      Its painful to be early while you’re still early. Stand by your convictions. The market always has the last word because manipulation can only hold back the markets for  a period of time. Once market forces re-assert themselves we’re going to feel much smarter.

      Until then, stack on.

      • “He’s got a great financial mind. The more they mock him on CNBC the smarter he looks.”

         

        Indeed so.  I keep thinking that if the so-called pundits on CNBC were so smart, why are they not running multi-billion dollar hedge funds and making tens of millions for themselves?  Instead, they only TALK about what others are actually DOING.

         

        Schiff is often right but also often early.  So?  That’s when financial advice is actually useful and not AFTER a stock has gone WAY up.  He called the real estate bubble and its bursting pretty well.  At that very same time, various CNBC and Bloomberg pundits were advising people that it was good to go out and ” buy a house”.  A few months later, the bottom fell out of the US RE market, making Schiff look like a genius and all of them like idiots.  Oh, well.  Truth WILL out, as they say.  😉

         

    • If one is waiting for the ‘markets’ to return to ‘normal’, one will be waiting for a long time.  The only real markets are super-markets, where people go buy real things like food.  The so-called ‘financial markets’ are all based upon the foundation of debt-based fiat ‘money’ created out of thin air, so such markets can never return to ‘normal’ because they’re not real markets to begin with.  They are a ponzi scheme of creating ‘paper wealth’ from the indebtedness of people.  People offer their labor for ‘money’ created by someone who typed in numbers in a computer.  Who in their right mind should work for such a thing?  Therefore, nothing will ever change until the way that money works changes.  The world has an unsound and corrupt money system as its financial and economic foundation, so it is not surprising that everything that relies on such a system is also corrupt.  Accordingly, no real change can come about until the world’s money system is restored.  It is meaningless to try to build a strong house upon a crooked foundation.

      • Good comments and I largely agree.  But it IS possible to step off of the debt hamster wheel.  I did and I know several others who have as well, so it can’t be all that uncommon.  Yes, we worked for fiat because it IS legal tender and that’s all that anyone will pay us with.  But that didn’t mean that this was the end of our involvement.  No, we took that fiat, saved it and invested it.  I went into the US stock market and did well.  Others went into real estate or a business and also did well.  All this allowed us to retire early and enjoy life.  Yes, I own PMs now as a solid part of my financial assets but I also own stocks, ETFs, mutual funds, two cars, and a home that are all paid off.  It was a struggle but it was possible via many years of hard work, saving, and investing.  Yes, times are now different.  They always are.  But people who desire a better life can still get it IF they are willing to work hard, save religiously, invest wisely, and spend carefully.

You just have to know what to look and listen for. At least, I got some information about it that I didn’t have before about the Russian stance on Greece.

    TND Guest Contributor: Jon Queally […]

    • In the continuing saga of “We are The Elite and going to bang you hard” there was this article on BBC this morning about a pensioner weeping outside a bank after being told his savings were not available.  The entire article Greece debt crisis: The cost to pensioners was a sad preview of what is to come globally!  Then you find this article Anger over Christine Lagarde’s tax-free salary which is no surprise either.  The problem with TPTB is not recognizing that this nonsense is what causes the return of the guillotine and the wrangler’s rope and Live Oak.

      There is no doubt that much of what is financially painful is due to people wanting today what they should wait and pay for tomorrow debt free.  Greece, Europe, Japan, USA and even China to some extent have written the hot check in a continuous manner.  However, there is no justification for down right theft.  No doubt the old saying “nothing is free” rings louder today than yesterday!

      Apparently both my US Senators voted FOR the TPP and who knows what else which is another promise of a cot in the bunker while SCOTUS continues to shred The Constitution and Bill of Rights.  When a nation of peoples turn from those principles that made them great this is the ‘Clear and Present Danger’ result apparently!

      I grieve for my country while Satanic darkness is preparing to cover the land.  This miniscule group of demented psychopaths motivated by self centered greed and false illusions of power will surely bring much pain to us all including the power elite themselves working studiously to bring it all about.  I include them in this statement since the permutations and combinations cannot be calculated to the final degree.  Prepare yourselves for a ’29 Depression on steroids my friends.

      Thanks Doc for both the looking glass and very competitive prices in PMs.

      • “Prepare yourselves for a ’29 Depression on steroids my friends.”

         

        Indeed so.  Depressions very much appear to be manufactured by the big NY banks and specifically for the purpose of fleecing the sheep en masse.  They do this in grand style about every 80 years and in a halfway mode about every 40 years.  This allows for plenty of milking and for the memory of it to die out.  Unlike in previous depressions, however, we now have a HUGE amount of public and private debt hanging over us all, like the sword of Damocles, and we also have mega-leverage via these idiotic derivatives.  Yes, the next depression will be a real doozie.  We’ve been seeing the front edge of it since 2008 but the real bulk of it has yet to hit us.  Maybe we are in the “eye” of this financial hurricane, so things don’t seem so bad.  But they will be, oh, yes… they will be!

         

    • Is there any doubt that TPTB like where they are seated and don’t plan on “giving up” ANYTHING anytime soon?… The signs are easily seen on all sides of the The Pond — What is being played out today on a small side-stage, will soon be reflected and replayed in some form/forum on a much larger stage, ie: maybe the USA?…Maybe Spain…etc. The power of the “People’s VOTE” is the stake in the heart of this beast! Just remember/recall what was said “first” when this was announced maybe a week or two ago: THERE CAN BE NO FURTHER TALKS UNTIL THIS REFEREMDOM IS HALTED…para phrasing what I read, re: Mercle from the North Germany throne!. Perhaps there is some understanding by these elite’s that you can control a few to a few hundred individuals — but, you sure as hell can’t control MILLIONS when they have a VOICE in matters of state!.. ie: their OWN destiny.  Can there be any doubt now that the times of “pitch-forks and torches” are nearly upon us again?..  VOTE in the streets…VOTE from your rooftop LOUDLY…

      FEAR seen in the beast is a wonderful sight to these old eyes! Perhaps “some peoples” have seen the path to salvation from this beast, eh?.. The “in your face” nature of these actions (re: vote) by the beast only serve to “open the eyes” of more sheepeople and convert them into “thinkers” once again. All these different “cause/effect” pairs only bring to mind the old book series “The Foundation”. There is a quickening towards the reckoning when EVERY breathing body on this blue marble is going to have to decide on a course of personal action — or, perish. When, in the course of earthly events, unshakable facts become self-evident; and, our gross food supplies are reduced by at least 10 to 20% overall, TPTB will be shown for what they truly are: puller’s of levers and pusher’s of buttons BEHIND THE CURTAIN without clothes.

  • When it comes to China’s Shanghai Stock Exchange Composite bubble, there’s one thing that most people miss..

     

    TND Exclusive:  Eric Dubin |

    When it comes to China’s Shanghai Stock Exchange Composite […]

    • Hey, ever since the Russians, Chinese, etc., decided to form their own banking system, the AIIB, their stock markets have been under attack by the US of A and the EU.  Just like the Feds [Reserve?] has been controlling silver and gold, they are in an all out war to prevent the Chinese from getting approval for a reserve currency. Note: a good stock market and banking system are the foundation of a reserve currency.

      Now everything should make sense.  The Cyprus, Greek, Puerto Rico, crises are the giant internal cracks in the corrupt Western system.  I don’t think the system can survive both the internal and external “attacks” brought about by the years of corruption coming to fruition.

      • I am wondering the West financial vultures have something to do with the recent Shanghai Stock Exchange crash?  China needs to be very careful with it’s dealing with theses West financial vultures.

    • The Chinese market, shadow banking enterprises and PBOC remind me of the events, printing and sky high market valuation that lead up to the Lehman crash   These days of irrational exuberance seem to afflict many countries but China appears to be quite susceptible to this syndrome.
