Ding, Ding, Ding!
The bell tolls, not for the 1%, but for the remaining 99% in Europe, the UK, Japan, and the US.
What Danger Zone? The powers-that-be must find a way to keep the masses under control, raise taxes, enrich themselves and monetize the debt.
The result will be currency devaluations, blood, inflation, distractions (such as downed airliners and new wars), banker bonuses, continued payoffs to politicians, and so much more. [Read more...]
Ding, Ding, Ding!
The official policy of the Central Bank (Federal Reserve)/government is: inflation is necessary for “growth,” i.e. economic expansion. The unstated reason for this official support of inflation is that it’s easier for borrowers to service their debts as their income inflates.
Just as the Federal Reserve cannot directly force you to stick the needle of monetary heroin (debt) into your arm, it also can’t force employers to pay employees more. [Read more...]
In this MUST WATCH interview with Finance & Liberty’s Elijah Johnson, Jim Willie breaks down his explosive prediction that Germany is in the process of pivoting east to join the Russian/Chinese/ BRIC alliance, and abandoning the fiat US dollar currency regime.
Willie states that WE HAVE REACHED THE END OF THE US DOLLAR REGIME!
“The dollar is going to be rejected on the global stage, and the majority of Americans won’t even know it!“
Jim Willie’s full interview on the end of the Petro-Dollar Regime is below:
Austria has already picked sides, with Russia, for the economic writing is on the wall.
Germany also is not about to jeopardize its long-established business ties with Russia. At least 3,000 businesses are linked to Russia, and they are not being quiet in their displeasure about any sanctions against Russia by the US. Further, Deutschland is increasing its economic ties to and with China. Between these three powerhouse nations, it is all about business and economic growth. With the US, it is all about fiat debt and war with little to no concern about which country[s] the US alienates in order to support its flailing and failing debt addiction.
Throw in the NSA spying scandal the US has and continues to wage against Germany, add the you-will-get-your-[non-existent]- gold when we say you can have it, and the clock it ticking as to when Germany says, “Genug ist genug!” Many measures have been taken that demonstrate a growing rift between these once-solid allies, and the only thing standing in the way of a complete breakaway is Chancellor Merkel, whose days are numbered.
It is finally happening in full view, in unmistakable manner, in a way that the awake, the aware, and the conscious can perceive in alarming stunning terms.
The central force of Europe, the industrial juggernaut, the stable core, has begun to pivot East.
The Germans have had enough, fed up with destructive US activities of all kinds. For the last few months, they have been laying out their indictment, their justification, their reasons to abandon the corrupt US-UK crowd. The bank wreckage, the market rigging, the endless wars, the sanctions which backfire, the sham monetary policy, the economic sabotage, the spying, the gold gimmicks, it has finally reached a critical level.
Germany has begun to move East in full view. Only the deaf dumb and blind cannot notice, and they will probably never notice. They are fodder.
The awaited signals seen by the Jackass have finally arrived.
Berlin is outraged by clear USGovt spying, and in process of conducting a Gold audit among their population. Germany is building motives to split from the Euro Monetary Union (common Euro currency) by forging stronger open ties with Russia & China. The justification is becoming plainly laid out, in four perceived indictment charges.
Germany will break from US/UK and its USDollar fiat currency regime over four primary thorny issues: [Read more...]
When scientists start using phrases such as “the worst drought” and “as bad as you can imagine” to describe what is going on in the western half of the country, you know that things are bad. Thanks to an epic drought that never seems to end, we are witnessing the beginning of a water crisis that most people never even dreamed was possible in this day and age. The state of California is getting ready to ban people from watering their lawns and washing their cars, but if this drought persists we will eventually see far more extreme water conservation measures than that. And the fact that nearly half of all of the produce in America comes out of the state of California means that ultimately this drought is going to deeply affect all of us. Food prices have already been rising at an alarming rate, and the longer this drought goes on the higher they will go.
Let us hope and pray that this drought is permanently broken at some point, because otherwise we could very well be entering an era of extreme water rationing, gigantic dust storms and crippling food prices.
The following are 20 signs that the epic drought in the western half of the United States is starting to become apocalyptic… [Read more...]
PM Fund Manager Dave Kranzler joins the SGTReport to discuss the details of the collapse, which is in already progress — as Jim Willie says, it started in 2008 — however the sad reality for most Americans is that they won’t wake up until it’s too late.
Dave says, “The majority of people won’t pick up their pitchforks until something really bad and painful happens. It might actually not happen until the Dollar collapses and people see that our country is essentially a third world country masquerading behind debt, printed money and FRAUD.”
Kranzler’s full MUST LISTEN interview is below:
As the Obama administration continues to alienate almost everyone else around the entire planet, an increasing number of prominent international voices are starting to question why the U.S. dollar should be so overwhelmingly dominant in global trade. Gazprom is now asking their large customers to start paying in currencies other than the dollar. But this is not just a story about Russia any longer. As you will read about below, China and South Korea have just signed a major agreement to facilitate trade with one another using their own national currencies, and even prominent French officials are now talking about the need to use the dollar less and the euro more. John Williams of shadowstats.com recently said that things have never “been more negative” for the U.S. dollar, and he was right on the mark. The power of the almighty dollar has allowed all of us living in the United States to enjoy an extremely high standard of living for decades, but as that power now fades it is going to have profound implications for the U.S. economy.

GET OUT OF YOUR BOND FUNDS NOW!
The day of reckoning is coming. I had a “eureka” moment last night when I read the comments by the chief economist of the Bank of England who, presumably unwittingly, warned that the aggregation of derivatives in the derivatives clearing system (primarily a subsidiary of The Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation – aka DTCC) could be “a problem from hell.”
The nexus of the problem is that fact that interest rate derivatives contracts make up the majority of the OTC derivatives.
JP Morgan and Citibank alone have $97 trillion in notional amount of OTC interest rate derivatives exposure.
To put that in perspective, the total size of the U.S. stock market is around $22 trillion. And $97 trillion doesn’t include the leverage that is embedded in these contracts.
Pimco, Black Rock and Fidelity have by far the largest concentration of exposure to this. That’s why the Vice Chairman of Black Rock is going around promoting the idea of a mechanism to bail-out DTCC when the derivatives bombs start to fly.
I was told this morning by someone in a position to know that the regulators are absolutely terrified of this problem and of a total bond market collapse.
If the economy is hunky dory, then why is the money supply going parabolic? [Read more...]
When is the system going to break down? The answer is 2008.
The tipping point was the Lehman kill in Sept 2008, following the subprime mortgage collapse.
It was a death event for the US banking structure, which should have forced liquidation of all Wall Street firms.
Then came the Financial Accounting Standards Board relaxation of rules in April 2009, which still permits the big US banks to declare their assets at any value they wish. They hide grotesque insolvency. Their liquidation would not happen, instead zombies walked.
The next tipping point was the Federal Reserve announcing a move toward the Zero Percent Interest Rate (ZIRP) in early 2009, followed by the bond monetization initiative (QE) in early 2012.
The most recent tipping points are the Syria War and the Ukraine War to obstruct the Russian Energy Monopoly in the European energy market. The defense of the USDollar has taken historically unprecedented turns.
These cited extreme events are all serious tipping points. Since 2009, the vastly depleted, exhausted, and wrecked body economic of Uncle Sam has been kept going with life support, electric shock treatment, and the formaldehyde elixir.
No recovery comes. Systemic failure and total breakdown are assured.
The only protection is Gold & Silver coins and bars. The hyper monetary inflation has met the asset destruction.
What I see coming in 2015 is the final and greatest economic crash in human history which will devastate all the world economies and brings in a sort of one world government that rules with an iron fist.
The Western public will likely cheer it on because after a few weeks and months of nearly devastating consequences, the world’s economies will be restored to a solid operating basis with hard assets as the underlying “good faith” once again just like various countries throughout history have had and used successfully.
This time however, it will be all the countries of the world who will participate in the new monetary system based on their possession of hard assets. A world wide governing board of “economic kings” will be set up to rule and make decisions for all of us and their decisions will be final for international trade.
Will some countries rebel? Those who have little hard assets will be hard pressed into a slave mentality to those countries with the hard assets AND MILITARY POWER to both back up their dictatorial ways and force the poorer countries of the world to do as they say and also make them believe it is for their own good.
The Greatest Economic Crash & financial system upheaval in human history looms.
Gold has been a store of value for 5,000 years. It has protected people from inflation, wars, and irresponsible governments during the last several thousand years. Gold has not always and forever been a good investment – the price of gold declined between 1980 and 2000.
But gold is currently excellent insurance against counter-party risk, consumer price inflation, central bank “money printing” and the consequences of the economic sins committed by irresponsible governments and central banks.
Gold (and silver) prices have bottomed and will move up substantially for several years. [Read more...]
My “key to the game” – and the reason I’ve made these bets – is simple enough: America, I’m betting, is effectively broke and must print money to stay in business. This assessment tells me that, at some point, the purchasing power of the dollar will decline precipitously and that demand for gold and silver will become much greater. [Read more...]
