Derivatives expert Rob Kirby from Kirby Analytics joins the SGTReport to discuss the latest in HIGH FINANCIAL CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY. [Read more...]
Former international derivatives broker Rob Kirby thinks the Fed’s recent cut back in money printing or “taper” is a con game.
Kirby says, “The threat of taper made rates go up. The actual taper has made the 10-year Treasury drop 40 basis points in less than a month. The notion that the taper had anything to do with interest rates going higher seems to be a non-story.” The Fed has long claimed it was buying bonds to hold down interest rates, but if that is not true, what was the Fed doing buying all of those so-called toxic mortgage bonds from the big banks? Kirby says, “My thesis about taper is that the banks in the U.S. had mortgage bonds on their books probably close to the tune of a trillion dollars that they could not sell to anyone. It was dead money, and they had to write them off somehow. The problem with writing off close to a trillion dollars’ worth of mortgage bonds that were held in all the U.S. banks is that kind of money is probably more than the total market capitalization of the U.S. banking industry. So, they had to figure a way to get those mortgage bonds off the books of the banks and silo them somewhere without basically admitting that the U.S. banking system was insolvent.” Kirby goes on to say, “For the most part, with them now tapering, we can almost say mission accomplished. They’ve taken these mortgage bonds off the books of the banks, and they are held right now on the balance sheet of the Federal Reserve.” [Read more...]
Financial analyst Rob Kirby says, “There is colossal fraud and price control going on. There are no free markets.” Kirby goes on to say, “What we’ve seen over the last six months is a ramp-up in interest rate swaps to the tune of $12 trillion . . . . What the build in these interest rate swaps is achieving, it’s stemming the rise in interest rates.” Kirby, who has 15 years experience in trading derivatives, says these complicated derivatives overseen by the U.S. Treasury control the price of virtually everything. Kirby contends, “I refer to this as a price control grid. They are able to dictate and arbitrarily set the price of all strategic goods in the market, whether it’s capitol, whether it’s energy or whether it’s precious metals.”
As an example of control, Kirby explains, “We have 10-year U.S. bond rates under 3%, and I would say the United States is actually insolvent, and we have countries like Greece where 10-year bonds are yielding over 9%.”
When does this end? Kirby points to look to the finite physical gold market and massive Chinese global buying for a clue. Kirby says, “When China doesn’t get their gold, that’s when this ends, and that might be when we have a war.” [Read more...]
In this in-depth and wide-reaching interview with Elijah Johnson, Rob Kirby (one of the industry’s foremost experts on the OTC/IR swaps derivatives market) discusses precisely how preciously metals market manipulation is likely to end, the super-nova shock to the US financial system that will result in the subsequent spike in interest rates, and the subsequent eventuality of a full-fledged hyperinflation descending on the US.
Kirby advises listeners that “If you don’t hold GOLD, you’re committing financial suicide“, and also discusses how the long-anticipated wealth grab by a desperate federal government is likely to play out.

Rob Kirby and Andy Hoffman join Elijah Johnson for a MUST LISTEN interview on Sunday’s silver smash, which saw 10% shaved off the silver futures price in only 4 minutes in a massive waterfall raid taking the metal to $20.30.
Kirby had this to say about the raid:
The take-down in precious metals is a contrivance, and it reeks and absolutely stinks of desperation on the part of the protectors of the world’s reserve currency, and that would be the US Treasury in cahoots with the Federal Reserve.
I want to take the gloves off here. Let’s just get this right up on the table. JP Morgan’s positions aren’t JP Morgan’s positions.
JP Morgan’s positions are the positions of the exchange stabilization fund, which is a branch of the US Treasury. When the US Treasury intervenes in the markets, they do so through the trading desk of the NY Fed, and their positions are executed by the NY Fed, who farm the trades out to the big derivatives banks. In that context, JP Morgan is the Federal Reserve. They are one and the same!

Rob Kirby of Kirby Analytics joins me to discuss what he’s calling full spectrum dominance – Bankster dominance, which is exactly what humanity is being subjected to. What is full spectrum Bankster dominance? It’s the boots-on-our-throats police state rolling out worldwide, it’s the latest policy of ‘Bail ins’ allowing the criminal banks to literally STEAL depositors cash whenever they’d like, it’s DOW 15,000+ and the plunge protection team. These stinking Banksters control it all through their Derivatives complex, and the head of the snake is the Bank of International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland. The good news if there’s any? The pure criminality of the system is now becoming evident to even the most diehard establishment supporters. [Read more...]

When sovereign gold is lent / leased – this is done through A BULLION BANK [like Goldman Sachs] whereby, physical bullion is sold into the market to raise cash balances which are then reinvested.
LTCM inadvertently collapsed when they took a highly leveraged position in sovereign Russian bonds and Russia defaulted. If a public ‘work-out’ of LTCM would have ensued – the true state of sovereign Italian finances, as well as the criminal actions of Goldman ‘Hannibal Lecter’ Sachs would have been on public display for the whole world to see – and the Euro would very likely have been still-borne.
For his part in this CRIMINAL FIASCO – Super Mario Draghi was rewarded by being made Vice Chairman of Goldman Sachs International in 2002 and later, in 2011 was appointed president of the European Central Bank [ECB] which on December 13, 2012, was granted exclusive regulatory power over ALL EUROPEAN BANKS: [Read more...]

Back in 2009, the Royal Canadian Mint [RCM] claimed that it had lost $15 million worth of gold bullion. What ensued from the time the loss was made “public” can best be described as a ‘fumbling exercise’ where – initially – different accounts were put forward as to the reason for the loss. Finally, public catcalls regarding this loss at one of the world’s most renowned Mints led to an official investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police [RCMP].
In the end, we were all told that this loss was due to honest miscalculations and blunders, or in other words – LAX CONTROLS.
Lax Internal Controls at the ISO 9001 accredited Royal Canadian Mint?
Here’s where we deduce why the Royal Canadian Mint circulated a “false, incredulous story” about how they lost $15 million worth of gold bullion:
“In the face of unprecedented demand for gold maple coins and with physical supplies of gold being tight in 2009 – it makes sense that the RCM would have “borrowed” gold bullion from one of their customers whom they store bullion for. I have been told by industry insiders that the RCM does not assay gold bars when they take them in for storage. When the RCM tried to melt these bars, they were revealed to be tungsten – which melts at a much higher temperature than gold. This created a very awkward situation for the RCM – having to tell one of their customers that they had stored salted [tungsten] bricks of gold.
SGT’s latest micro-doc (the original Madness of a Lost Society has received nearly 1 million view on youtube!) examines the madness of a lost society with a financial collapse staring them in the face.
Another ‘Black Friday’ has come and gone. And it has left us with further evidence of the complete madness of the populace of our nation. America has been dealt a fatal blow by corporate greed, Bankster malfeasance and the insidious nature of collectivism — and it’s all been done to us by design.
The once proud and independent people of the United States have, in large part, been reduced to servants of the State.
Featuring Mike Krieger, Rob Kirby, Chris Duane, Gerald Celente, The Doc, Bill Murphy and many others, ‘Madness 3′ offers one last ‘fair warning’ for those with the eyes to see and the ears to hear.
An Austrian banking source has reportedly claimed that Deutsche Bank ‘fulfilled’ one gold repatriation in recent years with the help of Tungsten and further claims that the tungsten salted gold bars have turned up in Asia.
In 2009, Rob Kirby first uncovered detailed information regarding a massive plot to replace 400 oz good delivery gold bars with highly sophisticated tungsten filled fakes- and even provided evidence that the bars had been swapped with the gold held at Fort Knox.
Widely scoffed at by the financial media in 2009, Kirby appears to have released a Pulitzer worthy story nearly half a decade ahead of its time, as if the Austrian source’s claims are true and Deutsche Bank has in fact fulfilled a recent gold repatriation request with gold plated tungsten, the ramifications are that not only is every single claim made by GATA regarding gold and silver manipulation are 100% accurate, but that real, physical metal is now in desperately short supply and the jig is nearly up for the bullion bank cartel.

The roots of the LIBOR crisis can be found in the broad based sub-prime FRAUD in America circa 2000 – 2007. The sub-prime fraud involved American investment banks securitizing [bundling] poor mortgage credits into “pools” – then working hand-in-hand with credit rating agencies like S & P and Moodys – having these pooled securities rated AAA.
In Q1/2007 American investment bank – Bear Stearns, a major player in this sub-prime securitization – had a number of these sub-prime pools FAIL to perform.
The failure of AAA credit – up till then – was UNHEARD of in modern finance and precipitated a GLOBAL CREDIT CRISIS where banks became UNWILLING TO LEND – even to one another. The sanctity of triple “AAA” credit had been violated. So by August 2007, Global Credit Markets were “locked up” – Commercial Paper markets, which function on “creditworthiness” – are the oil that greases the wheels of world industry. These critical markets were brought to a standstill.
In response to Global Credit Markets being locked up – the U.S. Treasury [Hank Paulson] in conjunction with the U.S. Federal Reserve [Benjamin Bernanke] undertook EXTREME MEASURES – via 7.5 TRILLION of off-balance sheet, OTC [over the counter] Derivatives Trades done with J.P. Morgan Chase. [Read more...]
