QE taper

It is widely expected that the Federal Reserve is going to announce the end of quantitative easing this week. 
Will this represent a major turning point for the stock market? 
As you will see below, since 2008 stocks have risen dramatically throughout every stage of quantitative easing. 
But when the various phases of quantitative easing have ended, stocks have always responded by declining substantially. 
The only thing that caused stocks to eventually start rising again was a new round of quantitative easing. 
Most Americans don’t even understand what derivatives are, but when the next great financial crisis strikes we are going to be hearing a whole lot about them.
The big banks have transformed Wall Street into the biggest casino in the history of the planet, and there is no way that this is going to end well.
A great collapse is coming.  It is just a matter of time.

inflation

Thanks to the Federal Reserve, the middle class is slowly being suffocated by rising food prices.
Perhaps you have also noticed that food prices have gotten pretty crazy lately.  In particular, meat prices have become absolutely obscene.  For example, the average price of ground beef has risen to a new record high of over $4.09 a poundOver the past twelve months, that works out to a whopping 17 percent increase…

10-Things-About-The-US-News-Media-300x300

Do you trust the news media? 
The mainstream media is slowly dying, but they will never admit it. 
Yes, on average Americans watch approximately 153 hours of television a month, but for their news they are increasingly turning to alternative sources of information such as this website. 
The following are 10 things about the U.S. news media that they do not want you to know…

ebola

A top Ebola scientist that is working in the heart of the outbreak in Liberia says that this version of Ebola looks like it could be “a very different bug” from past versions.
If what you will read about below is true, we could be dealing with some sort of “super Ebola” that nobody has ever seen before.

crash

Is Ebola going to cause another of the massive October stock market crashes that Wall Street is famous for?  At one point on Wednesday, the Dow was down a staggering 460 points.  It ultimately closed down just 173 points, but this was the fifth day in a row that the Dow has declined.  And of course Ebola is one of the primary things that is being blamed for this stunning stock market drop.
Since September 19th, we have seen the S&P 500 fall about 7 percent and the Nasdaq fall nearly 10 percent.  The VIX (the most important measure of volatility on Wall Street) shot up an astounding 22 percent on Wednesday.  So many of the ominous signsfor the markets that I wrote about on Tuesday are now even worse.  If a handful of Ebola cases in the United States can cause this much panic in the financial world, what would a full-blown pandemic look like?

Most people that discuss the “economic collapse” focus on what is coming in the future.  And without a doubt, we are on the verge of some incredibly hard times.  But what often gets neglected is the immense permanent damage that has been done to the U.S. economy by the long-term economic collapse that we are already experiencing.
But because unprecedented levels of government debt and reckless money printing by the Federal Reserve have bought us a very short window of relative stability, most Americans don’t seem too concerned about our long-term problems.
They seem to have faith that our “leaders” will be able to find a way to muddle through whatever challenges are ahead.  Hopefully the following 12 charts below will be a wake up call.
The last major wave of the economic collapse did a colossal amount of damage to our economic foundations, and now the next major wave of the economic collapse is rapidly approaching.

crash

Is the stock market about to crash? 
Without a doubt we have been living through one of the greatest financial bubbles in U.S. history, and the markets are absolutely primed for a full-blown crash.   We are starting to see some ominous things happen in the financial world that we have not seen happen in a very long time.  So many of the same patterns that we witnessed just prior to the bursting of the dotcom bubble and just prior to the 2008 financial crisis are repeating themselves again. 
Hopefully we still have at least a little bit more time before stocks completely crash, because when this market does implode it is going to be a doozy.
The following are 9 ominous signals coming from the financial markets that we have not seen in years…

China

In terms of purchasing power, China now has the largest economy on the entire planet, but that is not the only area where China has surpassed the United States.
China also accounts for more total global trade than the U.S. does, China consumes more energy than the U.S. does, and China now manufactures more goods than the U.S. does.  In other words, the era of American economic dominance is rapidly ending

gold volcano eruption

The next great financial crash may not not begin in the United States.
Many are convinced that a financial crisis that begins in Europe or in Japan (or both) will end up spreading across the globe and take down the U.S. too. 
Time will tell, but  signs are emerging that financial trouble is already starting to erupt in both Germany and Japan

martial law camp

If there is a major Ebola pandemic in America, all of the liberties and the freedoms that you currently enjoy would be gone.  If government officials believe that you have the virus, federal law allows them to round you up and detain you “for such time and in such manner as may be reasonably necessary.”

debt ponzi

The U.S. government is now borrowing an astonishing 8 trillion dollars a year, and you are about to see the hard numbers that prove this. 
The only way that this game can continue is if the U.S. government can continue to borrow gigantic piles of money at ridiculously low interest rates.
And our current standard of living greatly depends on the continuation of this game.
If something comes along and rattles this Ponzi scheme, life in America could change radically almost overnight.

ebola

The number of Ebola cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone is doubling approximately every 20 days.  People are dropping dead in the streets, large numbers of bodies are being dumped into the rivers, and gravediggers can hardly keep up with the the number of corpses that are being delivered to the cemeteries.
As you read this, life is pure hell in many areas of West Africa, and now the CDC is warning that things may get far, far worse in the very near future.  According to the CDC, the number of Ebola cases could potentially soar to 1.4 million by the end of January.
If Ebola continues to spread like wildfire throughout West Africa, it is just a matter of time before it starts popping up in major cities in other areas of the globe.
If this were to happen in the United States, life would change for all of us almost overnight.

ebola

The day that many of us hoped would never arrive is here.
With this evening’s confirmation by the CDC that Patient Zero is being treated in a Dallas intensive care unit 10 days after returning from Liberia, Ebola has come to America.  

fed goldman

For years, many people have suspected that the New York Fed is more or less controlled by the “too big to fail” banks.  Well, we now have smoking gun evidence that this is indeed the case…
