While the US the media lashes out at Trump every time he dares to tell the truth that the central bank is a biased, engaged, political member of the decision-making landscape, other “developed” countries are happily willing to demonstrate just how apolitical the central bank truly is. Take Greece, for example, where today the chief prosecutor ordered a raid of the home of the governor of the Greek central bank, Yannis Stournaras and the company office of his wife, Lina.
The searches were part of a probe conducted by the Financial Police in connection to the alleged mismanagement of more than 1 million euros in state funding by the Hellenic Center for Disease Control and Prevention, KEELPNO. The investigation related to funds that KEELPNO allegedly received through a company owned by Nikolopoulou as well as complaints regarding the disappearance of documents tied to the case.
According to the WSJ, the raid was part of a continuing investigation into business Stournaras’ wife has done with a state entity, officials said, in a probe that may heighten tension between the top bank official and the left-wing government. Lina Nikolopoulou-Stournaras, the wife of central bank Governor Yannis Stournaras and owner of an communications company specializing in the medical sector, is under investigation from Greek authorities for business she has done with the Hellenic Center for Disease Control and Prevention, or Keelpno.
In yet another case of alleged embezzlement, last year Greek authorities charged board members of Keelpno, with misappropriation of funds over contracts they had awarded between 2011 and 2013. Ms. Nikolopoulou-Stournaras has denied any wrong doing in the case. Mr. Stournaras isn’t involved in the business.
Meanwhile, the Greek central bank governor called Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to inform him of the raid and the two men agreed that it won’t affect their work on the country’s banking system, Greek government officials said. In a statement, the company owned by Ms. Nikolopoulo-Stournaras, Mindwork Business Solutions, said it handed over the information authorities asked for and that it operates within the law.
The central banker’s wife did not pull her punches, and in her statement made it clear that the object of the raid was not her, but her husband: “We all understand that the real target is my husband as a means of serving a certain purpose.” Syriza officials refused to comment on the statement.
And confirming without a doubt just how political central bankers truly are, Stournaras, who has was appointed as the country’s central bank governor in June 2014 under the previous conservative government, has sparred with the ruling left-wing Syriza party since it came into power in January last year. Senior members of the party have accused the Greek central bank governor of unfairly using his position to swing public opinion against their economic policies and in favor of the country’s lenders, eurozone nations and the International Monetary Fund.
Last summer the country’s previous parliamentary speaker, Zoe Konstantopoulou, demanded Mr. Stournaras testify at a committee investigating bribery allegations against Siemens AG, the German engineering giant, in a public stand off between the two. Mr. Stournaras initially refused to attend, citing his workload, but testified several months later.
Ironcially, a similar blowback against central bankers is taking place in the US and across the western world right now, however any time someone dares to state the truth, they are branded as a tinfoil wearing conspiracy theorist, and desperately ignored. This is better known as the denial phase.
Blowback? Just a few weeks after the EU slapped Apple with a $14 billion bill for “back taxes,” the U.S. has apparently responded with a $14 billion fine of their own to Deutsche Bank to settle an outstanding probe into the company’s trading of mortgage-backed securities during the financial crisis.
Shareholders are not happy…
According to the Wall Street Journal, the proposed settlement would be largest fine paid by any of the banks related to similar charges. Unfortunately for DB, the fine is roughly equal to it’s entire market cap and the stock is plunging nearly 8% in after hours trading.
The U.S. Justice Department proposed that Deutsche Bank AG pay $14 billion to settle a set of high-profile mortgage-securities probes stemming from the financial crisis, according to people familiar with the matter, a number that would rank among the largest of what other banks have paid to resolve similar claims and is well above what investors have been expecting.
The figure is described by people close to the negotiations between Deutsche Bank and the government as preliminary, and they said it came up in discussions between the bank and government lawyers in recent days. It hasn’t been previously disclosed. Deutsche Bank is expected to push back strongly against it, the people said, and it is far from clear what the final outcome will be.
It is also unclear how much of that amount is proposed to be paid in cash, and how much could be in consumer relief, as past deals have been structured.
A DB spokesman confirmed back in July that negotiations had been initiated with the DOJ though no estimates had been provided on the size of any potential settlement before today. That said, the Wall Street Journal notes that DB’s attorneys had privately suggested that a $2 – $3 billion settlement with the DOJ was probably in the ballpark. Meanwhile, wall street analysts had estimated settlements in the $2-$5 billion range. Any fines paid pursuant to current negotiations would be in addition to the $1.9 billion already paid in 2013 to settle other U.S. claims related to mortgage-backed securities.
Per the table below, as of June 30, DB had reserved a total of €5.5 billion for civil litigation and regulatory penalties on it’s balance sheet.
The size of the proposed settlement is also bad news for other European banks that remain under investigation by the DOJ including Barclays, Credit Suisse, UBS and RBS. Lawyers working with other banks have indicated that DB’s settlement would likely set the precedent for what other Euro banks might be expected to pay.
Just when you thought DB was safe…

Recently, our nation’s financial chieftains have been feeling a little unloved. Venture capitalists are comparing the persecution of the rich to the plight of Jews at Kristallnacht, Wall Street titans are saying that they’re sick of being beaten up, and this week, a billionaire investor, Wilbur Ross, proclaimed that “the 1 percent is being picked on for political reasons.”
Ross’s statement seemed particularly odd, because two years ago, I met Ross at an event that might single-handedly explain why the rest of the country still hates financial tycoons – the annual black-tie induction ceremony of a secret Wall Street fraternity called Kappa Beta Phi.
from Kevin Roose’s bookYoung Money, published today by Grand Central Publishing.
“Good evening, Exalted High Council, former Grand Swipes, Grand Swipes-in-waiting, fellow Wall Street Kappas, Kappas from the Spring Street and Montgomery Street chapters, and worthless neophytes!”
It was January 2012, and Ross, wearing a tuxedo and purple velvet moccasins embroidered with the fraternity’s Greek letters, was standing at the dais of the St. Regis Hotel ballroom, welcoming a crowd of two hundred wealthy and famous Wall Street figures to the Kappa Beta Phi dinner. Ross, the leader (or “Grand Swipe”) of the fraternity, was preparing to invite 21 new members — “neophytes,” as the group called them — to join its exclusive ranks.
Looking up at him from an elegant dinner of rack of lamb and foie gras were many of the most famous investors in the world, including executives from nearly every too-big-to-fail bank, private equity megafirm, and major hedge fund. AIG CEO Bob Benmosche was there, as were Wall Street superlawyer Marty Lipton and Alan “Ace” Greenberg, the former chairman of Bear Stearns. And those were just the returning members. Among the neophytes were hedge fund billionaire and major Obama donor Marc Lasry and Joe Reece, a high-ranking dealmaker at Credit Suisse. [To see the full Kappa Beta Phi member list, click here.] All told, enough wealth and power was concentrated in the St. Regis that night that if you had dropped a bomb on the roof, global finance as we know it might have ceased to exist.
During his introductory remarks, Ross spoke for several minutes about the legend of Kappa Beta Phi – how it had been started in 1929 by “four C+ William and Mary students”; how its crest, depicting a “macho right hand in a proper Savile Row suit and a Turnbull and Asser shirtsleeve,” was superior to that of its namesake Phi Beta Kappa (Ross called Phi Beta Kappa’s ruffled-sleeve logo a “tacit confession of homosexuality”); and how the fraternity’s motto, “Dum vivamus edimus et biberimus,” was Latin for “While we live, we eat and drink.”
On cue, the financiers shouted out in a thundering bellow: “DUM VIVAMUS EDIMUS ET BIBERIMUS.”
The only person not saying the chant along with Ross was me — a journalist who had sneaked into the event, and who was hiding out at a table in the back corner in a rented tuxedo.
I’d heard whisperings about the existence of Kappa Beta Phi, whose members included both incredibly successful financiers (New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former Goldman Sachs chairman John Whitehead, hedge-fund billionaire Paul Tudor Jones) and incredibly unsuccessful ones (Lehman Brothers CEO Dick Fuld, Bear Stearns CEO Jimmy Cayne, former New Jersey governor and MF Global flameout Jon Corzine). It was a secret fraternity, founded at the beginning of the Great Depression, that functioned as a sort of one-percenter’s Friars Club. Each year, the group’s dinner features comedy skits, musical acts in drag, and off-color jokes, and its group’s privacy mantra is “What happens at the St. Regis stays at the St. Regis.” For eight decades, it worked. No outsider in living memory had witnessed the entire proceedings firsthand.
I wanted to break the streak for several reasons. As part of my research for my book,Young Money, I’d been investigating the lives of young Wall Street bankers – the 22-year-olds toiling at the bottom of the financial sector’s food chain. I knew what made those people tick. But in my career as a financial journalist, one question that proved stubbornly elusive was what happened to Wall Streeters as they climbed the ladder to adulthood. Whenever I’d interviewed CEOs and chairmen at big Wall Street firms, they were always too guarded, too on-message and wrapped in media-relations armor to reveal anything interesting about the psychology of the ultra-wealthy. But if I could somehow see these barons in their natural environment, with their defenses down, I might be able to understand the world my young subjects were stepping into.
So when I learned when and where Kappa Beta Phi’s annual dinner was being held, I knew I needed to try to go.
Getting in was shockingly easy — a brisk walk past the sign-in desk, and I was inside cocktail hour. Immediately, I saw faces I recognized from the papers. I picked up an event program and saw that there were other boldface names on the Kappa Beta Phi membership roll — among them, then-Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink, Home Depot billionaire Ken Langone, Morgan Stanley bigwig Greg Fleming, and JPMorgan Chase vice chairman Jimmy Lee. Any way you count, this was one of the most powerful groups of business executives in the world. (Since I was a good 20 years younger than any other attendee, I suspect that anyone taking note of my presence assumed I was a waiter.)
I hadn’t counted on getting in to the Kappa Beta Phi dinner, and now that I had gotten past security, I wasn’t sure quite what to do. I wanted to avoid rousing suspicion, and I knew that talking to people would get me outed in short order. So I did the next best thing — slouched against a far wall of the room, and pretended to tap out emails on my phone.
After cocktail hour, the new inductees – all of whom were required to dress in leotards and gold-sequined skirts, with costume wigs – began their variety-show acts. Among the night’s lowlights:
• Paul Queally, a private-equity executive with Welsh, Carson, Anderson, & Stowe, told off-color jokes to Ted Virtue, another private-equity bigwig with MidOcean Partners. The jokes ranged from unfunny and sexist (Q: “What’s the biggest difference between Hillary Clinton and a catfish?” A: “One has whiskers and stinks, and the other is a fish”) to unfunny and homophobic (Q: “What’s the biggest difference between Barney Frank and a Fenway Frank?” A: “Barney Frank comes in different-size buns”).
• Bill Mulrow, a top executive at the Blackstone Group (who was later appointedchairman of the New York State Housing Finance Agency), and Emil Henry, a hedge fund manager with Tiger Infrastructure Partners and former assistant secretary of the Treasury, performed a bizarre two-man comedy skit. Mulrow was dressed in raggedy, tie-dye clothes to play the part of a liberal radical, and Henry was playing the part of a wealthy baron. They exchanged lines as if staging a debate between the 99 percent and the 1 percent. (“Bill, look at you! You’re pathetic, you liberal! You need a bath!” Henry shouted. “My God, you callow, insensitive Republican! Don’t you know what we need to do? We need to create jobs,” Mulrow shot back.)
• David Moore, Marc Lasry, and Keith Meister — respectively, a holding company CEO, a billionaire hedge-fund manager, and an activist investor — sang a few seconds of a finance-themed parody of “YMCA” before getting the hook.
• Warren Stephens, an investment banking CEO, took the stage in a Confederate flag hat and sang a song about the financial crisis, set to the tune of “Dixie.” (“In Wall Street land we’ll take our stand, said Morgan and Goldman. But first we better get some loans, so quick, get to the Fed, man.”)
A few more acts followed, during which the veteran Kappas continued to gorge themselves on racks of lamb, throw petits fours at the stage, and laugh uproariously. Michael Novogratz, a former Army helicopter pilot with a shaved head and a stocky build whose firm, Fortress Investment Group, had made him a billionaire, was sitting next to me, drinking liberally and annotating each performance with jokes and insults.
“Can you fuckin’ believe Lasry up there?” Novogratz asked me. I nodded. He added, “He just gave me a ride in his jet a month ago.”
The neophytes – who had changed from their drag outfits into Mormon missionary costumes — broke into their musical finale: a parody version of “I Believe,” the hit ballad from The Book of Mormon, with customized lyrics like “I believe that God has a plan for all of us. I believe my plan involves a seven-figure bonus.” Amused, I pulled out my phone, and began recording the proceedings on video. Wrong move.
“Who the hell are you?” Novogratz demanded.
I felt my pulse spike. I was tempted to make a run for it, but – due to the ethics code of the New York Times, my then-employer – I had no choice but to out myself.
“I’m a reporter,” I said.
Novogratz stood up from the table.
“You’re not allowed to be here,” he said.
I, too, stood, and tried to excuse myself, but he grabbed my arm and wouldn’t let go.
“Give me that or I’ll fucking break it!” Novogratz yelled, grabbing for my phone, which was filled with damning evidence. His eyes were bloodshot, and his neck veins were bulging. The song onstage was now over, and a number of prominent Kappas had rushed over to our table. Before the situation could escalate dangerously, a bond investor and former Grand Swipe named Alexandra Lebenthal stepped in between us. Wilbur Ross quickly followed, and the two of them led me out into the lobby, past a throng of Wall Street tycoons, some of whom seemed to be hyperventilating.
Once we made it to the lobby, Ross and Lebenthal reassured me that what I’d just seen wasn’t really a group of wealthy and powerful financiers making homophobic jokes, making light of the financial crisis, and bragging about their business conquests at Main Street’s expense. No, it was just a group of friends who came together to roast each other in a benign and self-deprecating manner. Nothing to see here.
But the extent of their worry wasn’t made clear until Ross offered himself up as a source for future stories in exchange for my cooperation.
“I’ll pick up the phone anytime, get you any help you need,” he said.
“Yeah, the people in this group could be very helpful,” Lebenthal chimed in. “If you could just keep their privacy in mind.”
I wasn’t going to be bribed off my story, but I understood their panic. Here, after all, was a group that included many of the executives whose firms had collectively wrecked the global economy in 2008 and 2009. And they were laughing off the entire disaster in private, as if it were a long-forgotten lark. (Or worse, sing about it — one of the last skits of the night was a self-congratulatory parody of ABBA’s “Dancing Queen,” called “Bailout King.”) These were activities that amounted to a gigantic middle finger to Main Street and that, if made public, could end careers and damage very public reputations.
After several more minutes spent trying to do damage control, Ross and Lebenthal escorted me out of the St. Regis.
As I walked through the streets of midtown in my ill-fitting tuxedo, I thought about the implications of what I’d just seen.
The first and most obvious conclusion was that the upper ranks of finance are composed of people who have completely divorced themselves from reality. No self-aware and socially conscious Wall Street executive would have agreed to be part of a group whose tacit mission is to make light of the financial sector’s foibles. Not when those foibles had resulted in real harm to millions of people in the form of foreclosures, wrecked 401(k)s, and a devastating unemployment crisis.
The second thing I realized was that Kappa Beta Phi was, in large part, a fear-based organization. Here were executives who had strong ideas about politics, society, and the work of their colleagues, but who would never have the courage to voice those opinions in a public setting. Their cowardice had reduced them to sniping at their perceived enemies in the form of satirical songs and sketches, among only those people who had been handpicked to share their view of the world. And the idea of a reporter making those views public had caused them to throw a mass temper tantrum.
The last thought I had, and the saddest, was that many of these self-righteous Kappa Beta Phi members had surely been first-year bankers once. And in the 20, 30, or 40 years since, something fundamental about them had changed. Their pursuit of money and power had removed them from the larger world to the sad extent that, now, in the primes of their careers, the only people with whom they could be truly themselves were a handful of other prominent financiers.
Perhaps, I realized, this social isolation is why despite extraordinary evidence to the contrary, one-percenters like Ross keep saying how badly persecuted they are. When you’re a member of the fraternity of money, it can be hard to see past the foie gras to the real world.

there is no past. There is no future. It’s all just a constant stream of NOW.
Watching the Brexit campaign generated mixed feelings: it was a little like the man who saw his mother-in-law drive his new Mercedes off a cliff. In the United Kingdom, some people who hated free trade, immigration and market innovation challenged the officious, wannabe superstate headquartered in Brussels. Who to cheer for?
We should cheer for the Brexiteers, who deserve at least a couple of hurrahs. The European Union created a common market throughout the continent, an undoubted good, but since then has focused on becoming a meddling Leviathan like Washington, DC. For Britain, the virtues of remaining appeared to pale in comparison to the likely costs of continued subservience to Brussels. In a variety of imperfect ways, Brexit promoted liberty, community, democracy and the rule of law. In short, the good guys won.
Here are sixteen reasons why the United Kingdom was better off Brexiting:
1. Average folks took on the commanding heights of politics, business, journalism and academia and triumphed. Obviously, the “little guy” isn’t always right, but the fact he can win demonstrates that a system whose pathways remain open to those the Bible refer to as “the least of these.” The wealthiest, best-organized and most publicized factions don’t always win.
2. Told to choose between economic bounty and self-governance, a majority of Britons chose the latter. It’s a false choice in this case, but people recognized that the sum of human existence is not material. The problem is not just the decisions previously taken away from those elected to govern the UK; it’s also the decisions that would have been taken away in the future had “Remain” won.
3. Those governed decided that they should make fundamental decisions about who would rule over them. The Eurocrats, a gaggle of politicians, bureaucrats, journalists, academics, lobbyists and businessmen were determined to achieve their ends no matter what the European people thought. A constitution rejected? Use a treaty. A treaty rejected? Vote again. A busted monetary union? Force a political union. And never, ever consult the public. No longer, said the British.
4. The rule of law will be respected—or at least not flagrantly flouted. Those signing up as EU members did not realize that the EU would be a transfer union. At least some countries likely would not have ratified the Lisbon Treaty, expanding Brussels’ writ, had they realized that explicit strictures against bailouts would be ostentatiously ignored. No doubt the usual suspects believed they were doing the Lord’s work by violating legal guarantees. But today no one living under the EU has any assurance that laws made, rules issued and promises offered would be kept.
5. Routine incantations of the need for “more Europe” and importance of “European solidarity” no longer will be confused with arguments. Those in charge always want more—more money to distribute, publicity to satisfy, rules to enforce and power to wield. Their vision of “more Europe” is Europe giving them more. “European solidarity” means others caring for them after they have wasted everything under their control.
6. Democracy will have triumphed over bureaucratic inertia. The EU is known for its “democratic deficit”, a Hydra-headed, unelected executive and a parliament chosen by people usually voting on domestic issues, using the polls for the European Parliament to punish errant governments at home. The Brussels bureaucracy has become the perfect means to impose policies that lack political support among member governments and peoples.
7. The pretensions of the EU as Weltmacht never looked so silly. There is a flag that no one salutes, and an anthem no one sings. There are multiple presidents: three, four or five? There is enervating duplication, including an EU foreign minister and diplomatic service along with those representing twenty-eight individual member states. Constant talk of creating a continental military while countries steadily shrink military outlays. Insistence that all which is good and decent comes from the EU as ever more people organize and vote against it.
8. The great satisfaction of watching smug smiles disappear from the faces of Eurocrats on both sides of the English Channel. The Brexit battle never was supposed to be a fair contest. It was intended to solve a Tory political problem, allowing the irreconcilables to make fools of themselves while the best and brightest led voters to the light. But it didn’t work out that way.

75% of Australians say yes to Royal Commission into Bad Banking System
20 APR 2016 — Its is clear that Australians have all been impacted in some form by bad banking practices. Australian Bankers have been acting as a Cartel of 17 to the ruinous financial rip-offs perpetrated on their own customers. Three decades of de-regulation has caused over $200 billion of losses re developer/bank driven ponzi scams.
Another $300 billion is caught up in unaffordable, unverified Ponzi Financing scams and sub prime lending. The 17 Mobsters are in control of the entire fraud, enveloping the construction, real estate and banking sectors. The PM is an ex banker with Goldman Sachs.
Our Corporate Regulatory Chief is an ex Banker with Societe Generale. The guy who was appointed to the last Financial Inquiry was one of the specific ex Bankers with Commonwealth Bank. The more the Government denies the people a Royal Commission the angrier the ordinary Australians are.
As a consumer group www.bfcsa.com.au we have more members needing help as ripped off borrowers, than there are politicians in Canberra. The PM is in denial as if in a timewarp. The Leader of the Opposition Bill Shorten judged the mood of the people and there will be plenty of swing voting at the next election.
Bring It On! We will achieve the Royal Commission we have all lobbied for many years.

Subject: Success against CBA, ANZ and NAB, and a fraud investigation by police
I hope this email provides hope and optimism for those who have battled against the banks, particularly those who are currently involved in disputes.
I contacted many of you in February 2014 when I advised that the two maladministration matters against CBA were successfully resolved in our favour. Since then, success has been achieved against ANZ and NAB for the same conduct of maladministration. Further, a Federal civil claim of misleading and deceptive conduct against the CBA employee had been filed and settled, and a police investigation for criminal fraud is underway against this same employee (which has been in progress for two years).
The full story is available here: https://www.facebook.com/notes/bank-reform-now/banks-defeated-by-a-son-fighting-for-his-mum-cba-knocked-out/759837954124855
If you could please like and share this article as well as the Bank Reform Now Facebook page (run by Dr Peter Brandson), that will help increase support for consumers against the banks’ unscrupulous conduct.

If you’re following the Commbank I.T Contract Bribery Case, you’ll know that Ian Narev was asked to sign off a contract that’s tainted with bribery allegations before
a) a Grand Jury against Eric Pulier,
b) a civil court in Delaware in Computer Science Corp v Pulier, and
c) criminal proceedings by the Federal Police’s Commander Linda Champion and NSW Cybercrime Inspector Katsogiannis
against CBA IT Managers Jon Waldron and Keith Hunter.
Hunter and Waldron were a stones throw from Narev. If he was ‘in on it’ there’s lots of laws in the USA and Australia that could apply to him personally.
Make sure you cc lots of people in the groups so that one day the copies can go to a Royal Commission. Also feel free to ask email@example.com to follow up on the complaints.
And no, we don’t give out names and numbers. Please google “scribd sting ace” for the screenshot of 7News’ coverage of a bribery case they say was a FBI Sting. Narev is one step away from the Board of people like Ashursts and their Gadens Clan. We want lawyers and bankers and managers to answer to real law enforcement.
Please feel welcome to google “Bloomberg Business Inside a $5.7 billion antitrust trainwreck”. In that case of Reserve Bank Information, undercover operatives stung colluding lawyers for Mastercard and Visa. Arrests and Jail for 3 are already Ordered. We’re tackling the banking culture ‘differently’. So if you can nudge things along with CBA please email firstname.lastname@example.org and medcraft and the ABC and let’s see if we can get the US to lean on the AFP and ASIC and APRA to look into whether the Board & Management & Lawyers complied with laws that apply to Global banking.
Members in the Supportive Residents & Carers Action Group Inc are already registered for a share of a reward (if any) if the US imposes a Fine on CBA. Members should email email@example.com and ask for $100,000 compensation for telling the “stingers” more than enough to get the US involved in some cases. Again, keep us in the loop with bcc emails, and any buzz off letters with go to the SEC and a Royal Commission.

Good Luck Getting Your Money Out When the Next Crisis Hits
Submitted by Phoenix Capital Research
Why is it that when a banking crisis hits, everyone acts surprised?
The reason is actually quite simple: everyone at the top of the financial food chain are highly incentivized to keep quiet about the problems.
Central Banks, Bank CEOs, politicians… all of these people are focused primarily on maintaining CONFIDENCE in the system, NOT on fixing the system’s problems. Indeed, they cannot even openly discuss the system’s problems because it would quickly reveal that they are a primary cause of them.
For that reason, you will never and I repeat NEVER see a Central banker, Bank CEO, or politician admit openly what is happening in the financial system. Even middle managers and lower level employees won’t talk about it because A) they don’t know the truth concerning their institutions or B) they could be fired for warning others.
Please take a few minutes to digest what I’m telling you here. You will not be warned of the risks to your wealth by anyone in a position of power in the political financial hierarchy (with the exception of folks like Ron Paul who are usually marginalized by the media).
Moreover, when the Crisis DOES hit, it will be much, much harder to get your money out.
Consider the recent regulations implemented by SEC to stop withdrawals from happening should another crisis occur.
The regulation is called Rules Provide Structural and Operational Reform to Address Run Risks in Money Market Funds. It sounds relatively innocuous until you get to the below quote:
Redemption Gates – Under the rules, if a money market fund’s level of weekly liquid assets falls below 30 percent, a money market fund’s board could in its discretion temporarily suspend redemptions (gate). To impose a gate, the board of directors would find that imposing a gate is in the money market fund’s best interests. A money market fund that imposes a gate would be required to lift that gate within 10 business days, although the board of directors could determine to lift the gate earlier. Money market funds would not be able to impose a gate for more than 10 business days in any 90-day period…
Government Money Market Funds – Government money market funds would not be subject to the new fees and gates provisions. However, under the proposed rules, these funds could voluntarily opt into them, if previously disclosed to investors.
In simple terms, if the system is ever under duress again, Money market funds can lock in capital (meaning you can’t get your money out) for up to 10 days.If the financial system was healthy and stable, there is no reason the regulators would be implementing this kind of reform.
As Zerohedge noted earlier today, the use of “gates” is spreading. A hedge fund just suspended redemptions… meaning investors cannot get their money out. Expect more and more of this to hit in the coming months as anyone who is has bet the farm on the system continuing to expand gets taken to the cleaners.
The solution, as it was in 2008, will not be to allow the defaults/ debt restructuring to occur. Instead, it will be focused on forcing investors to stay fully invested at whatever cost.
This is just the start of a much larger strategy of declaring War on Cash.
Indeed, we’ve uncovered a secret document outlining how the Fed plans to incinerate savings to force investors away from cash and into riskier assets.
We detail this paper and outline three investment strategies you can implement
right now to protect your capital from the Fed’s sinister plan in our Special Report

Commonwealth Bank’s Brendan French. Is he Australia’s biggest bank fraudster?
by Shane Dowling
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s senior executive Brendan French, who is one of Australia’s biggest fraudsters, recently won a defamation case against a whistleblower. This is quite amazing given that it is French’s role at the Commonwealth Bank to cover-up multi-million-dollar fraud and theft by Commonwealth Bank staff and others and Brendan French should be [READ MORE]

„Die Unterzeichnung nur mit einer Paraphe lässt nicht erkennen, das es sich um eine endgültige Erklärung des Unterzeichners und nicht etwa nur um einen Entwurf handelt. Es wird zwar nicht die Lesbarkeit der Unterschrift verlangt. Es muss aber ein die Identität des Unterschreibenden ausreichend kennzeichnender individueller Schriftzug sein, der einmalig ist, entsprechende charakteristische Merkmale aufweist und sich als Unterschrift eines Namens darstellt. Es müssen mindestens einzelne Buchstaben zu erkennen sein, weil es sonst an dem Merkmal einer Schrift überhaupt fehlt.“2.

Sobald sie von irgendeiner Partei weitergegeben wird, verliert diese Partei das Vorrecht auf sie. Denkt daran, all das hier basiert auf Verträgen. Wenn ein Darlehensgeber oder Gläubiger aufgrund meiner Zahlungsunfähigkeit ein Verlustrisiko hätte und dann die Schuld für eine Summe Geldes verkauft, dann ist dieses Risiko weg, denn er hat sein ursprüngliches Interesse am Vertrag “erstattet bekommen“. Wenn man eine Schuld erstattet bekommt, indem man sie an eine dritte Partei verkauft, wie kann man sie dann immer noch einfordern? Genau das passiert beim Schuldeninkasso durch Dritte. Die Partei, mit der du ursprünglich einen Vertrag hattest, hat deine Schuld verkauft und ihren Anspruch darauf aufgegeben. Und nun versucht eine dritte Partei, dich zu zwingen, mit ihr einen Vertrag über eine Schuld einzugehen, ohne jegliche gültige, durchsetzbare Rechtsautorität – außer du machst deine Rechte geltend und bestreitest den Anspruch… Eine Vertragspartei, die ihr Interesse ohne die ausdrückliche Zustimmung ALLER beteiligten Parteien an eine neue Partei verkauft (d.h. ohne deine ausdrückliche Zustimmung), hat keine rechtliche Durchsetzungskraft, außer du erteilst ihr unwissentlich Tacit Procuration (eine stillschweigende Bevollmächtigung), indem du ihre Annahmen NICHT widerlegst und auf ihr Vertragsangebot eingehst….Verein Internationaler Richter & Anwälte…3.

At Frank, Strauss allegedly … (in this letter also called receiver) c / o the Board allegedly foreclosed Postbank AG Kruppstr. 2 45128 Essen fax: xxx / Email: xxxx / by registered yes Date: July 28, 2015 I refer to your letter dated ??? (not even that you specified) with the alleged no. / business hours 2,697,095th For this purpose, I inform you that I would be lucky to be able to meet your demands … Anyway, in the UCC-law there is a claim that has not been refuted, then your unit / your trade or business / your business known. German Postbank AG (company), Kruppstr. 2, 45128 (address), claiming its managing director / to be in you, was seized. Likewise, you mentioned, you have written company Commerz Financial Inc. and collection Goldbach GmbH is seized and thus no longer exists. The absence of a signature on a document is contrary to the rule of law that decisions, orders, declarations of intent, etc. to obtain legally valid basically a handwritten signature name of the exhibitor require (§ 126 BGB) .Verstößt something of a legal rule, it is null and void (§§ 125 BGB, 44 VwVfG)! A decision, a judgment as well as agreements of any kind must be signed for res judicata obtain because only the signature guarantees its origin. (§ 129 Rn 8 ff BGH VersR S 6, 442, Karlsr. Fam. RZ 99, 452) When an infringement is legally only a draft (a notebook) before. This naturally also applies to any other public sector (government, administrations, etc.), which like with phrases such as “This document was created automatically and is valid without signature”. This view is simply accepted by many people so, is probably one of the biggest errors of law in Germany. This means that your writing is invalid and void. For this reason, I see, as long as I have not received any refutation from you, your invitation as an oversight on / an offer that I explicitly reject herewith. In reference to the attached goodwill message I would point to the following: You (the recipient) to be explicitly pointed out that you are acting in your work in person, you have the safety net of your former company no more than backing, so you are personally responsible for any of your actions under civil law, according to public order UCC 1-103 and by universal law. See WA DC UCC Ref Doc # 2012113593 How do you prevent you will receive an invoice from me by the terms and conditions of the goodwill message? Never reenter in contact with me, either by phone or in writing. Your former employer company has no contract with me or not a loan due to the UCC registrations by OPPT. [See in particular WA DC UCC Doc # 2012114776, October 24, 2012]. Can you refute the mentioned facts, I await your reply adequately verified that provides evidence that you have the legitimacy to represent the above alleged demands on me. All other steps can be found in the Terms and Conditions in the accompanying goodwill message (the English Courtesy Notice is legally binding, the German only for’s understanding). For a better understanding of the goodwill message (Courtesy Notice) and other important documents UCC clicking on http://i-uv.com Please also read the Apostolic Letter (the Pope’s decree). Content: All the so-called staff of so-called courts, governments and banks, forced executors, debt collection agencies, IRS, CRA, etc. are taken by 01 September 2013, responsible for crimes against humanity, which the refusal include, balance accounts, and are fraudulent.. accused claims. http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/francesco/apost_letters/index_ge.htm My message to you is goodwill released to protect me on the intended website: http://pn.i-uv.com I am happy to inform you here also the link to the original OPPT UCC Filings with (legal basis): http://i-uv.com/oppt-absolute/original-oppt-ucc-filings/ With full respect from person to person Without Prejudice UCC 1-308 XXXXX
Dear Frank Strauss I draw your attention to the fact that a foreclosed and repossessed company can have no claim to another party. I do not therefore call on this fraud to continue to maintain and cancel the account garnishment. If you do not have to Mum, I hereby authorize you to lead my single checking account as garnishment protection account. “Any debt collection by third parties is fraud” Once it is passed on by any party, that party will lose the privilege to them. Remember, all of this is based on contracts. If a lender or creditor would have a risk of loss due to my inability to pay, and then sell the debt for a sum of money, then this risk is gone, because he has “reimbursed” his original interest in the contract. If you get paid a debt, by selling them to a third party, how can you then demand still? This is what happens when debt collection by third parties. The party with whom you originally had a contract to sell your fault and given up their claim on it. And now a third party to force you tried to take with her a contract for a debt, without any valid and enforceable legal authority – except you do your rights and denies the claim … A Party participating interest without the express consent of all parties sold to a new party (ie without your express consent), has no enforcement power, unless you her erteilst unknowingly Tacit procuration (tacit authorization) by you refute their assumptions do not and comest on their contract offer … .Verein International Judges & Lawyers … Love (r), Frank Strauss I want to inform you of the following. Because I want to provide clarity where perhaps it is doubtful, or even ignorance. All States / “governments” and all the other companies, in short, the whole former system were 2012 foreclosure and at least since the 12.25.2012 all men are freed. This means, among other freed from everything that the old system had gradually wound around the people, I want to highlight all statutes (as laws were known), and the legal person associated (name in capital letters) of Strohmann- of the believe us was taken, we had this. Now acting while still in the name of the (allegedly under mentioned company), but this company there are de jure no longer since 12.25.2012! They act as an individual and without the previous safety net of their former company- FULLY PRIVATE adhesive. All laws are enforced = statutes and you have to have no rights over a portion of I AM, another part of I AM, etc. Today the UNIVERSAL LAW only apply to German Universal Law = any decision freewill is allowed, unless it interferes with the free will of another human being. And the Common Law to German Common Law = injure or kill anybody, not steal and do not destroy the property of others, be honest in your actions / negotiations / deals and do not cheat, and pens to anyone for such deeds. I am, as you well and everyone else today again a sovereign human being of flesh and blood and I want to contribute to a peaceful world in which all people live in harmony and equality and make must-own responsibility in love to the whole! We all are now trustees of the public trust and are encouraged to true values to maintain or clean the overlays. Most likely you have not been informed by her ex-CEO (ex-boss) about this serious change. But today you will get, and that is the concern of this letter, the information, including my terms, you should plan to want to come in any way in contact with me yet. I would in no way extort money from you with this CN, I would simply like you let me in peace and quite. You avoid to you privately, asked me bills, if you (nor by phone nor some other way in writing,) come in any way in connection with the enforced company in contact with me. Please also inform their colleagues, as the principal-agent DOCTRINE of UCC anchored here, that is exactly: I am sending you today this message and thus send them to all the on behalf of the under (supposedly above) company (if extensions mentioned are, nevertheless, counts the main point) continue to act. Because these states DOCTRINE: White the boss knows the Agent and vice versa. And please inform your family, friends and acquaintances. I want with this information will help you to protect yourself, because you might lose everything can / will. What we do (Trustees) today, contributes to coexistence, in the true and promoting prosperity and peace for all people will be possible. As part of this great awakening many will realize that a few who are at the top of the hierarchy, make it possible by private, for-profit companies (some of which pretend to be governments) to enslave humanity effectively, through control of finances, governments , military, judicial systems and law enforcement agencies, and also various programs and taxation, energy production, food production, water security, just about every aspect of our life strategies. That should change, and does it well, and though rapidly. Perhaps you can also understand in your profession and also see the truth there – maybe you now also get yourself a whole new look at their previous job or start this questioning. Also, they are a part of us! These CN (goodwill message) will be published in each case in a timely manner to protect me on www.pn.i-uv.com, and in the case asked invoices / reminders. I hold in front of me, in case of non payment, based progress billings which are defined by the Terms and Conditions, submit a complaint UCC and https://endlichfreileben.wordpress.com/arrest-list/ optionally be set to the international arrest list. (I hope that you will never force my way through their actions, one of the last versions) I am writing here as a sovereign person with my given by nature Creator rights, and no longer as ignorant, accidental and unwillentlicher representative of the legal person-once with the birth registration (birth certificate) could lead a parallel life. The former system has been annulled by the means of the system. All past, present, and future contracts are null and void – Unless you are between 2 or more individuals closed. Statutes, loans, debt, banking, currency, title, hierarchies, authorities, so-called. Authorities, so-called. Governments, so-called. Courts / police etc, all companies enforced null and void.

Scope of Doctrine. The Doctrine of Privity has two aspects.a. No one can acquire rights under a contract to which he is not a party.b. No one can incur liabilities under a contract to which he is not a party.CONTRACT LAW is one of the most clear cut and unambiguous LAWS that there is. In many cases the LAW and more specifically CONTRACT LAW insisted upon to be written, that even a lay man, would and could understand it.

Billionaire Blackstone CEO Trolls American Public – Doesn’t Get Why People Are Angry
Submitted by Tyler Durden
DAVOS MAN: “A soulless man, technocratic, nationless and cultureless, severed from reality. The modern economics that undergirded Davos capitalism is equally soulless, a managerial capitalism that reduces economics to mathematics and separates it from human action and human creativity.”
– From the post: “For the Sake of Capitalism, Pepper Spray Davos”
I’ve written several posts examining the dangerous cluelessness inherent throughout the ranks of the oligarch class over the past several years. One of my earliest and most viral pieces was published two years ago and titled, An Open Letter to Sam Zell: Why Your Statements are Delusional and Dangerous. That article was a response to the billionaire’s appearance of CNBC during which he instructed the less financially fortunate to “emulate the 1%,” as if their destitution was a result of personal shortcomings as opposed to egregious structural flaws inherent in the rigged, crony, oligarch-controlled Banana Republic economy billionaires such as himself helped mold. Here’s an excerpt:
Individuals, social classes, even cultures and nation-states develop storylines and so-called “myths” about themselves and how they fit into the bigger picture of current events and human history. We all see ourselves and whatever group(s) with which we identify within a particular social, political and economic context. This is obvious, yet it is much more difficult to look at your owns myths and question them. It is far easier to look at other groups’ myths and heap criticism on them. That is basically all you do.
You think everyone that has issues with you oligarchs and how the 0.01% is destroying our economy and society is simply envious because you assume they think like you do. Certainly, if you were poor you would be envious of the the rich. You’ve made that clear. However, that is not the primary motivation of the anger and resentment swelling up from the underclasses.
Your misdiagnosis of the root cause of the current dissent in America is a result of your obliviousness to the actual concerns of the 99%. A group about which you speak with such certainty, yet certainly know almost nothing about. In fact, my website is dedicated to highlighting all of the destructive trends happening in this nation today. From record high food stamp participation, to declining real wages and the reality that young people need to take on so much debt they become indentured serfs from the moment they enter the workforce. From a loss of 4th Amendment rights due to illegal NSA spying, to the militarization of the police force. From oligarch immunity from serious financial crimes that average citizens would be thrown in jail for life for, to trillion dollar bailouts with zero strings attached for the financial community. From the over-prosecution of some of our bravest citizens such as Aaron Swartz, Barrett Brown and Private Manning to a fraudulent two-party sham political system entirely controlled by your socio-economic class.
In that article, I outlined many of the reasons people are angry and why they should be angry. In fact, I’ve published hundreds of articles every year since early 2012 detailing exactly why the country is in such dire straights. It’s not just me of course, tens of thousands of people across the globe have been doing it for far longer and to much larger audiences. The reason billionaires are incapable of comprehending what’s going on is because doing so would contradict the life-stories they tell themselves about themselves. Make no mistake about it, billionaires think of themselves as truly exceptional people. Privately, they likely muse that their mere presence on earth is nothing short of a glorious gift to humanity from the heavens. These people are deluded, secluded and emotionally stunted in more ways than you could possibly imagine. They have zero capacity for self-reflection.
In our modern world, our culture has become convinced that extreme wealth and power are something to admire, when history shows us time and time again that “the people” must always remain vigilant against the centralization of precisely those two things. Naturally, the people who are centralizing the wealth and power for themselves don’t see the problem with wealth and power centralization. Neither does much of the fawning, inept, and soulless media.
The latest example of oligarch disconnectedness comes, quite appropriately, from Davos. So here’s the quote from Steven Schwartzman, billionaire CEO of private equity giant Blackstone:
“I find the whole thing astonishing and what’s remarkable is the amount of anger whether it’s on the Republican side or the Democratic side,” the Wall Street mogul said at the World Economic Forum in Davos. “Bernie Sanders, to me, is almost more stunning than some of what’s going on in the Republican side. How is that happening, why is that happening?”
Forbes goes on to accurately note that:
America is the richest and most unequal nation in the world — at least when you look at the wealth in 55 of the more conventionally developed countries. Median income has largely fallen behind economic growth as corporations continue to retain a bigger share of the benefits, turning into a reverse of what is usually claimed as the danger of income redistribution.
But whether there are long term changes coming or not of their own accord is immaterial in this case. People in the U.S. don’t tend to think that way. What many perceive now is a basic economic unfairness. They work hard, play by the rules as they’ve learned them, and keep getting further behind. The debt funding for college and large purchases seems to be never ending for large portions of the populace, which cements in a sense of unending inequality.
In a way, Bernie Sanders and the Tea Party are different expressions of the same phenomenon. People disagree over the causes and the proper fixes, but they can find common ground in the sense that things are wrong, that power and wealth are too concentrated, and that most of the country will be left holding the bag when things blow up. That the biggest banks got bailed out of an economic downturn largely of their own creation while the promised help for homeowners largely never materialized didn’t help.
Of course people are angry. It’s one thing to face problems but another to face incompetent greed and manipulation. Unless people climb out of their ivory towers and recognize what is happening on the ground, there will be pain and suffering for all to pay. It’s happened time and again in the past. What makes anyone think that our age is somehow immune?
David Sirota at the International Business Times adds:
On the eve of the conference, the nonprofit group Oxfam released a report showing that the richest 62 people on the planet now own more wealth than half the world’s population. In the United States, recent data from Pew Research shows the average American’s median household worth has stagnated, as the median household worth of upper-class Americans increased 7 percent. Schwarzman, though, expressed surprise that people are enraged.
Yes, you read that right. 62 people own more than 3.5 billion of the earth’s inhabitants. Nothing to see here, move along serfs.
Of course, as I’ve maintained time and time again, this sort of aggregation of wealth only happens in rigged economies. It’s as if the entire Western world has become that Third World oil dictatorship where three guys have billions while the rest of the population eats dirt. I’m sure those dictators also see wonderful, admirable people when they fawn over themselves in the mirror, just as Steven Schwartzman undoubtably does.

The Fed Responds To Zero Hedge: Here Are Some Follow Up Questions
Submitted by Tyler Durden
Over the weekend, we gave the Dallas Fed a chance to respond to a Zero Hedge story corroborated by at least two independent sources, in which we reported that Federal Reserve members had met with bank lenders with distressed loan exposure to the US oil and gas sector and, after parsing through the complete bank books, had advised banks to i) not urge creditor counterparties into default, ii) urge asset sales instead, and iii) ultimately suspend mark to market in various instances.
Moments ago the Dallas Fed, whose president since September 2015 is Robert Steven Kaplan, a former Goldman Sachs career banker who after 22 years at the bank rose to the rank of vice chairman of its investment bank group – an odd background for a regional Fed president – took the time away from its holiday schedule to respond to Zero Hedge.
This is what it said.
— Dallas Fed (@DallasFed) January 18, 2016
We thank the Dallas Fad for their prompt attention to this important matter. After all, as one of our sources commented, “If revolvers are not being marked anymore, then it’s basically early days of subprime when mbs payback schedules started to fall behind.” Surely there is nothing that can grab the public’s attention more than a rerun of the mortgage crisis, especially if confirmed by the highest institution.
As such we understand the Dallas Fed’s desire to avoid a public reaction and preserve semantic neutrality by refuting “such guidance.”
That said, we fully stand by our story, and now that we have engaged the Dallas Fed we would like to ask several very important follow up questions, to probe deeper into a matter that is of significant public interest as well as to clear up any potential confusion as to just what “guidance” the Fed is referring to.
- Has the Dallas Fed, or any other members and individuals of the Federal Reserve System, met with U.S. bank and other lender management teams in recent weeks/months and if so what was the purpose of such meetings?
- Has the Dallas Fed, or any other members and individuals of the Federal Reserve System, requested that banks and other lenders present their internal energy loan books and loan marks for Fed inspection in recent weeks/months?
- Has the Dallas Fed, or any other members and individuals of the Federal Reserve System, discussed options facing financial lenders, and other creditors, who have distressed credit exposure including but not limited to:
- avoiding defaults on distressed debtor counterparties?
- encouraging asset sales for distressed debtor counterparties?
- advising banks to avoid the proper marking of loan exposure to market?
- advising banks to mark loan exposure to a model framework, one created either by the creditors themselves or one presented by members of the Federal Reserve network?
- avoiding the presentation of public filings with loan exposure marked to market values of counterparty debt?
- Was the Dallas Fed, or any other members and individuals of the Federal Reserve System, consulted before the January 15, 2016 Citigroup Q4 earnings call during which the bank refused to disclose to the public the full extent of its reserves related to its oil and gas loan exposure, as quoted from CFO John Gerspach:
“while we are taking what we believe to be the appropriate reserves for that, I’m just not prepared to give you a specific number right now as far as the amount of reserves that we have on that particular book of business. That’s just not something that we’ve traditionally done in the past.”
- Furthermore, if the Dallas Fed, or any other members and individuals of the Federal Reserve system, were not consulted when Citigroup made the decision to withhold such relevant information on potential energy loan losses, does the Federal Reserve System believe that Citigroup is in compliance with its public disclosure requirements by withholding such information from its shareholders and the public?
- If the Dallas Fed does not issue “such” guidance to banks, then what precisely guidance does the Dallas Fed issue to banks?
Since the Fed is an entity tasked with serving the public, and since it took the opportunity to reply in broad terms to our previous article, we are confident that Mr. Kaplan and his subordinates will promptly address these follow up concerns.
Finally, in light of this official refutation by the Dallas Fed, we are confident that disclosing the Fed’s internal meeting schedules is something the Fed will not object to, and we hereby request that Mr. Kaplan disclose all of his personal meetings with members of the U.S. and international financial system since coming to office, both through this article, and through a FOIA request we are submitting concurrently.

Complete List Of Banks Owned By Illuminati Rothschild Family
There’s no question, on the surface or without doing any research on the matter, the whole concept of a “New World Order,” or a secret group of people, that act as puppet masters for the planet and for the entire human race seems a bit far fetched, not to mention depressing. With that said, as painful as the truth might be, wouldn’t you prefer the truth than being manipulated for your entire life?
For anyone who has ever seen the movie “The Matrix,” the whole concept of the film is not that far fetched from the reality of humanity today. Wikipedia summarizes the movie as:
It depicts a dystopian future in which reality as perceived by most humans is actually asimulated reality called “the Matrix”, created by sentient machines to subdue the human population, while their bodies’ heat and electrical activity are used as an energy source. Computer programmer “Neo” learns this truth and is drawn into a rebellion against the machines, which involves other people who have been freed from the “dream world”.
In the movie, once humans become “unplugged” from the Matrix, or the simulated reality that is FORCE FED to them, they are able to see the world for what it is, not for what they are told it is. In many ways, the stranglehold the global elite have on knowledge and money makes them powerful, and with that power, they either directly or indirectly control EVERY aspect of our lives.
As the FIRST VIDEO below points out, have you ever wondered how these global mega-corporations of today make hundreds of millions, or even billions of dollars every year, and while their top brass make absurd amounts of money, the ones who really drive the company are barely paid living wages?
That is all by design. Those at the top understand that if they can keep you very busy, with just enough money to live on, or in some cases a little more, once people start families, what little free time they have won’t be spent on self-education, introspection, and eventually a spiritual awakening. That is why we’re all here on earth isn’t it?
The fact is, those in the top 1% don’t want you educated any more than slave owners of the past wanted their slaves educated. Instead, they want you just smart enough to operate their machines and keep systems running, but stupid enough so that you never have time to learn enough to where you begin to ask questions about the system you’re living in.
What you’ll also see in the first video below, is that the elite have a system in place that has allowed them to grow their global banking empire to the point where almost all of humanity has literally become slaves to “the system,” aka the economic system. We’ve become slaves to money, not necessarily out of greed, but for our own survival in most cases. German poet Heinrich Heine once said,“Money is the god of our time, and Rothschild is his prophet, Look around you.
The public school programs around the world are the first place the elite begin to shape our minds. Through gradually declining education combined with non-stop indoctrination, fear generated by world religions, fear of being punished or imprisoned by government for things our ancestors would have never dreamed of fearing, or through the invisible enslavement of each person by the monetary system, we are no more than sheep to be herded.
The first video talks about The 13 Families That Rule the World and Who Act as The Shadow Forces Behind the New World Order.
When you consider that the Rothschild’s are just one of those 13 families, and they are worth an estimated $500 TRILLION DOLLARS, all of a sudden it becomes MUCH easier to see how these families control everything on earth.
The Rothschild’s alone have the wealth to pay off our national debt accumulated since the founding of the United States, the most powerful “nation state” on earth, more than 26 times over. Below when you see that they own virtually every central bank on the planet, things will become even more clear.
The shadow forces behind the New World Order (NWO) are following a slow-paced agenda of total control over mankind and our planet’s resources. David Icke coined it the “Totalitarian Tip-Toe,” because “they” are making very small steps towards our complete and definitive enslavement.
As a result, the masses remain relatively unaware of the fact that their liberties are being gradually taken away, while the power of the NWO octopus grows steadily.
THE SHADOW FORCES BEHIND THE NWO AGENDA:
Somewhere near the very top of the pyramid, an extremely elitist organization known as the Council of the 13 families orchestrates all of the major world events. As the name suggests, the Council consists of the top 13 most influential families on Earth.
An increasingly number of people is becoming aware that 99% of the Earth’s population is controlled by an “elite” 1%, but the Council of the 13 families consists of less than 1% of the 1% “elite” and nobody on Earth can apply for membership.
In their opinion, they are entitled to rule over the rest of us because they are the direct descendants of the ancient gods and consider themselves royal. These families are:
Rothschild (Bauer or Bower)
Sinclair (St. Clair)
Warburg (del Banco)
The Rothschild dynasty is unquestionably the most powerful – visible – bloodline on Earth and their estimated wealth is around $500 trillions!
“Give me control over a nations currency, and I care not who makes its laws” – Baron M.A. Rothschild

The FED and the IRS
Virtually unknown to the general public is the fact that the US Federal Reserve is a privately owned company, siting on its very own patch of land, immune to the US laws.
This privately owned company (controlled by the Rothschilds, Rockefellers and Morgans) prints the money FOR the US Government, which pays them interest for the “favor.” This means that if we would reset the nation’s debt today and would begin reprinting money, we would be in debt to the FED from the very first dollar loaned to our Government.
Also, most people living in the USA have no clue that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is a foreign agency.
To be more accurate, the IRS is a foreign private corporation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and is the private “army” of the Federal Reserve (Fed).
Its main goal is to make sure the American people pay their tax and be good little slaves.
You can read more on the subject here.
In 1835, US President Andrew Jackson declared his disdain for the international bankers:
“You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning.”
There followed an (unsuccessful) assassination attempt on President Jackson’s life. Jackson had told his vice president, Martin Van Buren:
“The bank, Mr. Van Buren, is trying to kill me.”
This was the beginning of a pattern of intrigue that would plague the White House itself over the coming decades. Both Lincoln and JFK have been murdered for trying to rid the country of banksters.
Read everything on the subject here.
The world’s Megabanks
There are two Megabanks that offer loans to all the countries around the planet, the World Bank and the IMF. The first one is jointly owned by the world’s top banking families, with the Rothschilds at the very top, while the second one is privately owned by the Rothschilds alone.
These two Megabanks offer loans to “developing countries” and use their almost impossible-to-pay-back interests to get their hands on the real wealth: land and precious metals.
But that’s not all! An important part of their plan is to also exploit a country’s natural resources (like petrol or gas) via their covertly-owned companies, refine them, and sell them back to the same country, making a huge profit.
But in order for these companies to operate optimally, they need a solid infrastructure, which is usually lacking in the so called “developing countries.” So before the banksters even offer the almost impossible-to-pay-back loans, they make sure that most of the money will be invested in — you’ve guessed it — infrastructure.
These “negotiations” are carried out by the so called “Economic Hitmen”, who succeed by handsomely rewarding (i.e. bribing) or threatening with death those who are in the position to sell away their country.
The following video breaks down the process the global elite follows very well:
“We, the economic hitmen, have managed to create the warld’s first truly global empire. We’re basically a secret empire. We do it many ways, but basically we identify a country that has resources that one of our company’s covets, like oil, the we give that country a loan from the World Bank or one of our other sister banks, and the money never actually goes TO the country. It goes to OUR corporations, and we build huge infrastructure projects that help a few, very wealthy people, but DON’T benefit the majority of people who are either too poor for electricity or don’t have cars for the highways…”
I WON’T RUIN THE REST OF THE VIDEO…
For more information on the subject, I suggest reading the Confessions of an Economic Hitman.
The one bank that rules them all, the “Bank for International Settlement,” is — obviously — controlled by the Rothschilds and it is nicknamed the “Tower of Basel.”
The true power of the Rothschilds goes FAR beyond the Banking Empire
If you are not yet amazed by the power of the Rothschilds (I know you are), please know that they are also behind all wars since Napoleon. That’s when they’ve discovered justhow profitable it is to finance both sides of a war and they’ve been doing it ever since.
In 1849, Guttle Schnapper, the wife of Mayer Amschel stated:
“If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.”
So, the world is still at war because it is very, very profitable to the Rothschilds and their parasite bankster bloodlines. And for as long as we will continue to use money, the world will never know peace.
It is shocking for many to find out that the United States of America is a corporation ruled from abroad. Its original name was the Virginia Company and it was owned by the British Crown (it should not be mistaken for the Queen, which functions largely in a ceremonial capacity only).
The British Crown donated the company to the Vatican, which gave the exploitation rights back to the Crown. The US Presidents are appointed CEOs and their business is to make money for the British Crown and the Vatican, who take their share of the profits every year.
The British Crown covertly rules the world from the 677-acre, independent sovereign state, know as The City of London. This other Crown is comprised of a committee of 12 banks headed by the Bank of England. Guess who is controlling the Bank of England? Yup, the Rothschilds!
(Read everything on the subject here).
In 1815, Nathan Mayer made the following statement:
“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”
The House of Rothschild is really at the top of the pyramid of power. They are behind theNew World Order and the complete domination of the world agenda. They are behind the European Union and the Euro and they are behind the idea of a North American Union and the Amero. They are controlling all of the world’s secret services and their private army isNATO.
Very, very impressive!
Now, what would you say if I told you that we can crumble their empire to dust overnight, without any sort of violence?
I included the next video, simply so people could put a face to the name, and actually listen to an interview with the richest man in the world bar none. Are you asking why $500 trillion dollar rich Rothschild’s are not on Forbes Richest People list? They could care less.
“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.” ~ Rothschild
“We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.” ~ Rothschild
As you saw in the first video, the New World Order is heavily involved in shaping public education. Their primary focus is shifting the curriculums from critical thinking type coursework, to brute memorization. Brute memorization gives the illusion of having accomplished something great, because it takes hard work to memorize large amounts however, it deliberately leaves a void in teaching the skills that might cause a person to question a narrative they’ve been given, whether from a teacher, the news, or a political figure. Kids don’t learn to ask, What If Everything You Were Ever Taught Was A Lie?
I explore the subject of why modern “science” and “academia” is withholding the truth from mankind on who or what built the ancient megalithic structures around the planet. If they don’t know, that’s fine, but to continue to perpetrate utter nonsense that has been proven to be false is mind boggling. It’s time people realize that Everything We Have Been Taught About Human Origins Is A Lie. Furthermore, I know of no other organization in the world that can reach into “science” and “academia” across national boundaries other than the New World Order… so the next logical question is…
IF THE NEW WORLD ORDER IS COVERING UP SOMETHING FROM MANKIND’S ANCIENT PAST, WHY? THAT AND MANY OTHER SUBJECTS ARE EXPLORED BELOW:
FOR JUST A FEW EXAMPLES OF HOW POLITICS, WARS, PLANET X, GLOBAL DEPOPULATION, AND THE ILLUMINATI FIT TOGETHER:
Round Five with Karen Hudes— Judge Anna, January 16, 2016
(Round four is below)
Dear Anna Maria Wilhelmina Hanna Sophia Riezinger-von Reitzenstein von Lettow-Vorbeck,
Once again, playing your name games, Karen? If you have done this with the hard copy reply that you claim you have sent (no sign of it here) it will be invalid because not addressed to the claimant— a flesh and blood woman called “Anna Maria Riezinger” and a flesh and blood man called “James Clinton Belcher”. You have clearly addressed this to someone or some “thing” else other than the lien claimant and it has been translated by others and given to me despite your failure to address it to me. Again, a distinct evasion and avoidance of fact showing a refusal to deal in good faith.
The Board of Governors of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund and Board of Executive Directors of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development are not in default as I put a stamped envelope with a hard copy of the answer to your claims in the mailbox addressed to you and your husband at the same time as I posted the response on the internet. https://s3.amazonaws.com/khudes/Twitter18.104.22.168.pdf
As you didn’t answer the lien questions in those remarks, exactly how or why would I consider a paper copy as an answer, either?
Why didn’t you even mention the fact that the scam of US debt is now ended because the Global Debt Facility has offset US indebtedness along with other countries’ debts against the Treaty of Versailles bonds held by the Global Debt Facility? This is a good thing, isn’t it? You should be happy about this, shouldn’t you? And your husband too?
Ms. Hudes, you have paid off the debts of the Federal United States by these actions, but you have not paid the actual Creditors, the people of the Continental United States. We have brought it to you attention before that paying our neighbor down the street is not the same as paying us. We have also brought it to your attention that the Federal United States has no contractual capacity to receive any such recompense “in our behalf”. You were instructed to read our Constitution and see for yourself that there is not any mention of any such delegation of authority to the “federal government”. As a result your actions erasing their debts has no impact on us and does not constitute any payment to us, which is a problem because we are the actual Priority Creditors owed the payment.
You might have thought it worthwhile to find out whether indeed General Dunford was a member of the Knights of Malta. Most people that know what is happening know why this is important to know. You say that you are an impartial representative of people in the United States, yet you do not bother to inform yourself about the role of secret societies? http://www.jfklibrary.org/…/American-Newspaper-Publishers-A…
Ms. Hudes – without putting too sharp a point on it, you are yourself a member of a “Secret Society”— the London Lawyer’s Guild and the Middle Innes of Court— and you hold the office of at least “Esquire” in their service. This foreign and undisclosed office bears with it an ancient and horrific Oath to the Father of All Lies, called a Nullification Oath, which renders your testimony regarding any matter void. Since you are in the literal service of the Devil, and are bold enough to proclaim it in public, I consider you to be at least as much of a problem as any Knight of Malta.
Martial law in the United States is not legitimate; it has been suspended and instead the United States is now in an interregnum. General Dunford is no longer in command of the US government. The person who called me up to arrange a meeting with General Dunford was most disappointed when I told him the same thing. https://s3.amazonaws.com/khudes/dctvteleprompt1.5.pdf
The only way for martial law to end is for the legitimate government of the land to end it. That power remains with the people of this country, not your banker bosses and not the members of the United States Congress. The so-called Civil Authority remains with the land jurisdiction and with the Continental Congress of the united States of America. Although I believe that there would be no disagreement on the need to end martial law, or the desirability of that, until the People order it, it isn’t ordered.
This may not have come to your attention, Ms. Hudes, but the Federal United States is a creature born of contract, and that contract is not yours. We have not accepted your offer of Succession. Buying such a position from people with no interest in it and no ability to sell it in the first place is precisely the same in law as buying a piece of Florida real estate via quit claim on a piece of ocean floor. The efforts of the British Monarch to wash her hands were foiled on November 6, 2015, by our conclusion of a treaty with the American Native Nations which are both recognized Indigenous Nations and as separate competent Federal Entities. The actual Constitution still stands as a result. Even though the UNITED STATES is in receivership and your bosses have purchased it, the actual Priority Creditors have first right and are sovereign. It is our credit and assets that you have used to redeem their debt, so by what possible excuse do you now pretend to order us around and tell us what we are going to do, Ms. Hudes?
Your bank is in a middleman and Fiduciary position with regard to us having knowingly received our assets under conditions of deceit and fraud, and you have just used our assets and our credit to redeem the debts of a Third Party against our instructions. Now, on top of that, you propose that you are going to take up the role of the United States Government and tell us what to do?
Dream on, Ms. Hudes. We are still owed the entire amount of our assets received by the World Bank and we have not concluded any agreement with your corporation allowing it any Successor position with regard to us nor our united States of America. That “federal” contract has been granted to other entities and the Truth of it has been timely presented to General Secretary Ki-Ban Moon and the United Nations Security Council as well as other dignitaries and governments around the world.
Instead, the US is returning to its Constitution of 1789 under Article V thereof. US residents are exchanging Federal Reserve Notes with US Treasury Dollars minted by Ronald Reagan that are held in the Global Debt Facility. https://s3.amazonaws.com/khudes/UBS+UNCUT.pdf
Ronald Reagan’s Grace Commission showed that US income taxes went entirely to service that scam called country debt. http://digital.library.unt.edu/…/m1/1/high_res_d/IP0281G.pdf
Then, the Treasury Dollars will be exchanged for currency called aurum out of gold reserves held in the Global Debt Facility. http://www.peakprosperity.com/podca…/84359/new-way-hold-gold
The so-called “federal government” — has been operating both unlawfully and illegally and is in both administrative and commercial default. The United Nations has been holding the cards and playing the role seeking to keep the hopelessly mismanaged derelict afloat while continuing the charade and spending credit that belongs to us. It won’t work anymore, Ms. Hudes.
We know precisely what is going on and there are no more backroom deals for Wannabe Successors to contract. We do not consent and we have returned your offer. The day you use our purloined assets and inheritance to buy a bankrupt governmental services corporation that owed us that same money and then offer to tell us what to do, is the day we jerk you and your bosses into a worldwide exposure of your criminality to be judged by the whole of humanity, not just your buddies at the Innes of Court.
The bankruptcy of the US occurred more than a decade before Jose Rizal and Ferdinand Marcos appointed the Board of Governors of the World Bank and IMF to abolish that2 scam called fractional reserve fiat banking as soon as the assets in the Global Debt Facility were held free and clear. If you want to complain to somebody about the bankruptcy of the United States, you can blame the Network of Global Corporate Control identified by Vitali, Glattfelder, and Battiston of ETH Zurich http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1107/1107.5728v2.pdf
The only bankruptcy of any importance to us— the actual people and States of this country– ended almost 200 years ago. Our involvement in any further bankruptcies by the Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt Administrations were simply gross examples of international fraud and Breach of Trust by private bank-run governmental services corporations secretively occupying public offices and using and abusing them for private benefit. All actions of the “US Congress” since 1860 have been null and void for fraud, semantic deceit, and unlawful conversion. That is their problem now, not ours. We are totally innocent Third Parties, non-combatant Victims of Crime. We are owed our public and private property back and in our lawful control with no further arguments or offers or objections of any kind. If the World Bank has a problem with that, we can take it up with the United Nations Security Council and the United Nations Trust Committees through our appointed Fiduciary Deputies. We can also take it up with the World Court and the War Crimes Tribunal.
The Board of Governors of the World Bank and IMF and the Board of Executive Directors of the World Bank were not Trustees in the Receivership of the United States; you have entirely fluffed this essential point upon which your spurious claims rest.
I never said that the Board of Governors of the World Bank and IMF and the Board of Executive Directors of the World Bank were Trustees in the Receivership of the United States—- no, Ms. Hudes, what I said and what you have to answer for is the fact that they were Secondary Creditors in that action, which is precisely what Item (1) of our Final Notice states. Since when do mature attorneys attempt to confuse the words “Trustees” with “Secondary Creditors” in a bankruptcy? You have been instructed to read Title 5 of the old Federal Code and also the Bankruptcy Act of 1934— with an eye to the fact that the people of this country were unknowingly and unconscionably named the Priority Creditors without their knowledge or consent by a bank-run government services corporation with no more authority to indebt them than Pizza Hut has authority to indebt its customers and lay claim to their private property as chattel backing its corporate faux pas.
No, Ms. Hudes the position of the World Bank and the IMF results from their failure to recognize the fact that the Priority Creditors are still alive and their Heirs are still alive and your friends, the banks that profited from the outrageous press-ganging of the American people could not resist collecting our gold as “abandoned property” on top of everything else they have done that is despicable, immoral, unlawful, and illegal. There are an estimated 390 million people on this continent who never performed the duty imposed by our actual Congress in 1804 regarding any change of our birthright political status and of them, at least 360 million who owe no service to the Federal United States.
We want our assets returned to us and to our control without any further proposals from you and your bosses about what we should do with our property. We trust that whatever you have done to bail out the Federal United States is on your own accounts, not ours.
We do not intend to further benefit our detractors and those who have defrauded us, Ms. Hudes. Please inform the Board of Governors of the World Bank and IMF and the Board of Executive Directors of the World Bank that their involvement as Secondary Creditors to the 1933 Bankruptcy is well-recorded and remembered. We know precisely who showed up at the feeding trough and exactly who decided to give our gold away to the Secondary Creditors.
As I have also reminded you and them, the probate of an estate whether that of one man or that of a nation is never really closed. The heirs can show up 200 years later and reclaim their interest in it, and we just did precisely that. We have instructed you as a Trustee of the Global Debt Facility that you are in receipt of stolen goods that are part of our estate property and we have notified you to return our assets whether gold or titles or copyrights or registrations or patents or contracts or other material interests or representations thereof in the possession of the World Bank and its members to us and to our lawful government on the land known as the united States of America, which is still in business and solvent and bringing suit in behalf of the Priority Creditors, Entitlement Holders, Heirs, and Beneficiaries of the 1933 Bankruptcy.

Round Four With Karen Hudes:
KAREN: Ms. von Reitz has not yet answered my question:
“Ms.von Reitz” is not the proper party to address, is it, Karen? You are The claimant and beneficiary whose vessel is organic and who is live flesh and blood is not an officer of the Crown and holds no office related to the Crown. The woman calling you to task is called “Anna Maria Riezinger” and she is not a “Ms.” of any kind. You are an attorney and you are presumed to know that. So let’s start there. That your mischaracterization was translated and that others delivered it to me (nothing in the mail,nothing direct via email, either) is merely chance. One doesn’t misaddress questions, Karen, unless one doesn’t want the answers, which is what I estimate your situation to be.
Do you deny that General Joseph Dunford is a Knight of Malta and that he is heading the martial law in the US?
I have no knowledge of General Dunford’s associations religious, fraternal, or otherwise. I address him in his capacity as a Commanding General of the American Armed Forces, the Successors of the Grand Army of the Republic in the present day, and as a result, of course he is heading the “martial law” in the United States—- the same martial law that has existed since 1863 when Abraham Lincoln issued General Order 100 and still obligated to maintain the duty established under it to safeguard our money. Get the connection? You keep hopping up and down about “martial law” when it is a documented historical fact that the Federal United States (merely a contractor supposed to be providing services to the peaceful Continental United States and doing a damnably poor job of it) has been at constant war and operating under martial law for 150 years.
KAREN: Why did you think people wanted their gold to go to him?
See above. It is not only Dunford’s commission, but his life as a Fiduciary on the line if he fails to honor the duty owed to the American People. Know anyone else in a more compelling and official and responsible position to receive the gold back?
Ms. von Reitz and her husband have no standing to make any claim against the Global Debt Facility or to prevent the Global Debt Facility from cancelling all countries’ debts against the Treaty of Versailles bonds worth 2 quadrillion dollars in the Global Debt Facility: https://s3.amazonaws.com/
I have already disabused your ignorance concerning our standing. We are each members of the “free sovereign and independent people of the United States”—– that is, the Continental United States and we have claimed and documented that status before the United Nations, the Holy See, and HRM Elizabeth II without any argument or objection. Even if we were the only Americans left, we would still have standing as the heirs of the Priority Creditors of the 1933 Bankruptcy and we would still have the ability to act under the Last Man Standing Rule to exercise the entire duty and contract owed to all other Americans. As it happens, there are about 360 million of us still able to act in this capacity and we are not the only ones competent to do so.
I have answered her other assorted claims in the attached mark-up. [https://s3.amazonaws.com/khudes/Twitter22.214.171.124.pdf
another said: “Anna has very close ties to the Vatican, and that is a power base I do not have much trust in. ” and another pointed out that he was recruited to “follow” her without having done this himself and that he opted out as soon as he could:@simon21409 @KarenHudes FYI Ms Reitz trying to convince me against you. I had never accepted to follow her, somehow I was. Shenanigans? So I unfollowed ] 4
Ms. Hudes, you are a lawyer and a bank shill trying to abscond with money and assets owed to the American People. You have promoted no less than five (5) different and all odious proposals that have reeked of self-interest, lies, and hidden deceits. The simple facts of the matter are these:
1. The World Bank/IBRD and Federal Reserve were all Secondary Creditors in the 1933 Bankruptcy of the United States of America, Inc. See Title 5 of the old Federal Code, the 1934 Emergency Banking Act, and Title 12. The American people were swindled via personage and barratry into occupying the position of Priority Creditors and mercilessly hounded by the “Internal Revenue Service” sponsored by the Federal Reserve System and the “IRS” sponsored by the IMF under the false presumption that they were “voluntarily” acting in this role. In fact they were never told about it and were press-ganged by the British Government acting in Gross Breach of Trust.
2. The colluding banks named the Secretary of the Treasury of Puerto Rico as the Trustee of the Bankruptcy.
3. Via collusion, semantic deceit, unlawful conversion, reverse trust fraud and other means of constructive fraud the members of the American Bar Association and the banks responsible for this unspeakable lawlessness and depravity abused the American People and via abuse of their trust in what appeared to be their government obtained undisclosed contracts purporting to change their political status to that of municipal debt slaves owned by the “US Congress” and the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation.
4. For over seven decades the American People and the united States of America accrued credit and received no remedy. Their credit equal to the entire so-called “National Debt” of what was a private, mostly-foreign owned governmental services corporation merely calling itself the “United States of America” and trading on the name as an undisclosed successor to contract is what you propose to apply in favor of the Federal United States and its District of Columbia Municipal Corporation.
What you and your bosses are proposing is to bail out your partners in crime using our assets and our money to do it. When we object you pretend that you don’t know who we are.
5. We are members of the Class of People who are in fact the Priority Creditors, Heirs, and Entitlement Holders owed the “National Credit”, all gold reserves, all patents, all titles to land, all businesses and corporations, all patents, copyrights, and registrations of property rightfully belonging to us and we have informed you as a Trustee of the Global Debt Facility that:
(a) not a penny of assets owed to the American People and the united States of America can be applied against the debts of the Federal United States or used to buy back its I.O.U’s;
(b) if the World Bank/IBRD/IMF choose to pay off the debts of the Federal United States operating in any guise whatsoever they do so without any reference to us or our assets;
(c) our assets both public and private in the possession of the World Bank or any other bank that was party to the 1933 Bankruptcy are to be returned to us and our control without any further argument or offers or obfuscation;
(d) any offer of the UN Corporation to act as successor to contract is refused and we point out that other arrangements have already been made;
(e) as qualified beneficiaries of the living and dead Priority Creditors we bring claim under the Last Man Standing Rule and by our presence collapse any avenue for you to exercise your Will in this matter instead of ours;
(f) with the Donors and the Beneficiaries arrayed against you, Ms. Hudes, your only lawful exit as a Trustee is to do precisely what we tell you to do and we trust that the instructions we have provided are sufficient to get the job done;
(g) do not apply any of our credit or our assets to any debts of the Federal United States or the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation or use any of our credit or assets to buy back or convert Federal Reserve Notes into any other private bank script including United States Treasury Notes;
(h) our gold is to be used to back our actual money known as United States Silver Dollars and defined as one ounce of pure silver and we have appointed American Armed Forces General Joseph F. Dunford, Jr. to act as our Fiduciary Deputy to receive and secure the assets.
6. Ms. Hudes –any failure on your part or the part of the other Trustees of the World Bank/IBRD/IMF operating the Global Debt Facility to obey the Will of the actual Entitlement Holders, Heirs, Beneficiaries, and Donors will result in you being arrested and charged with a multitude of crimes which I hardly need to list. You should all be grateful that you are merely being required to return stolen property and to pay reasonable interest and damages instead of being taken out and gibbeted for fraud, press-ganging, inland piracy, and unlawful conversion.
7. This is our last offer of a peaceful settlement and general amnesty. The banks and the governmental services corporations that they have run under conditions of deceit and non-disclosure are in the frying pan, Ms. Hudes. They won’t get out of it absent a full and honest return of our property assets both public and private. If the banks haven’t socked away enough profit to pay their own debts after a hundred years of stealing the value of our labor and using our assets as collateral, it’s their problem, not ours.
You and your Bar Member Buddies and your Banker Bosses have gone as far as you are going to get. The Truth is known, it is certain, and it has gone worldwide. People in Britain are now aware of exactly how international banks have colluded to enslave them, too. They have the proof in their hands. People in Canada, too. In Australia. In Japan.
If we are forced to take up arms against private commercial mercenaries masquerading as lawful agencies of our government– the rest of the entire world which has been similarly wronged will not hesistate to join us in wiping the Federal United States into the dustbin of history; and as they realize who and what the actual perpetrators are, it will not take long for your corporations to be liquidated, your assets seized, and your precious selves committed to the fate you had planned for others.
Best make haste to make peace with your Creditors, Ms. Hudes. I recommend that you and your employers spend a couple minutes and read the children’s story “The Very Greedy Python” by Eric Carle.
Back in 2008, I began warning of increasing capital controls that we would see in the future, as a component in the decline of Western economies (Western in the broad sense, including Japan, Australia, etc.)
Along the way, it occurred to me that, at some point, governments might collectively attempt to eliminate paper currency in favour of an electronic currency – transferred from party to party solely through licensed banks. Sound farfetched? Well, maybe, but what if the U.S. and EU agreed on an overall plan, then suggested it to other governments? On the face of it, this smacks of conspiracy theory, yet certainly, all governments would benefit from this control and would be likely to get on board. In fact, it might prove to be the only way out of their present economic problems.
So, how would it play out? Here’s roughly how I saw Phase I:
- Link the free movement of cash to terrorism (Create a consciousness that any movement of large sums suggests criminal activity.);
- Establish upper limits on the amount of money that can be moved without reporting to some government investigatory agency;
- Periodically lower those limits;
- Accustom people to making all purchases, however small or large, through a bank card;
- Create a consciousness that the mere possession of cash is suspect, since it’s no longer “necessary”.
When I first wrote on the subject, there was considerable criticism as to the possibility that such a programme would ever be attempted, let alone succeed. And, granted, it was so Orwellian that it was understandably seen as a crackpot idea. But since that time, the programme has been developing extremely rapidly. In the last six months alone, it has become so visible that it has even garnered a name – “the War on Cash”.
References in the media have been made that terrorist groups fund their attacks with cash. Dozens of countries have placed limits on the maximum amount of money that can be moved without reporting. Some, notably France, have already begun lowering their limits. Banks in some countries, notably Sweden, are already treating all cash transactions as suspicious. The previously theoretical Phase I is now well under way.
This issue has expanded more quickly than I’d anticipated. Clearly, the governments that are forcing it into being are running out of time. There can only be one reason why they’d rush a programme that normally would be given more time for people to accept, and that’s that they see a crash coming before they can get Phase II of the programme underway.
Although most anyone who’s paying attention recognises that Phase I is in motion, Phase II (as I perceive it) is not yet on the radar, but I believe it will be soon. Phase II will be the second wave of measures and they will be more draconian than Phase I:
- Create a definitive false flag event that demonstrates how physical cash is the primary means of funding evil acts in the world;
- Declare a date on which paper currency will become illegal (Until that date, it can be deposited into a bank. After that date, it becomes criminal to possess it.);
- Once all cash has been deposited in banks, increase negative interest rates;
- Confiscation of deposits can then be implemented, as desired, by banks (Confiscation of deposits is already legal in Canada, the U.S., and the EU.);
- Confiscate contents of selected safe deposit boxes;
- End “voluntary” taxation. All taxation will, in future, be by direct debit;
- Declare money to be the property of the State that issued it. (The people are allowed to trade in it, but it is not truly theirs. The State therefore can freeze or confiscate the funds in any account, if any crime is “suspected”.).
In recent months, I’ve warned repeatedly that, since confiscations of deposits will take place, we must assume that banks will additionally raid safe deposit boxes, as stated in the above list. Some banks, beginning with JPMorgan Chase, have placed limits on what forms of wealth can be placed in safe deposit boxes. Since then, Greece has taken this one step further. In future, Greek citizens will be required to declare cash exceeding €15,000, jewellery and precious stones valued at over €30,000 and declare the location of the safe deposit box in which they’re stored.
The declaration is fraught with difficulties for the depositor, as he bears the obligation to accurately appraise each item. Should authorities disagree with the appraisal of, say, Grandma’s diamond brooch, the depositor would be suspect and may face confiscation.
State Wealth Control
Once Phase II is completed, state wealth control will exist. And, again, this prediction will seem at first glance to be Orwellian – a mere fiction. But then, less than a year ago, the War on Cash was regarded by only a few as being even within the realm of possibility, let alone right around the corner. And so it is with Phase II. Now that Phase I is in motion, it’s accepted as an unsettling reality, but Phase II is the obvious sequel.
If you have cash in a bank, you think of it as your own. This is not the case. It’s wealth that you’ve loaned to the bank. In the future, the bank (with governmental approval) will have the power to decide if and when they will return all, or a part, of that cash to you. They will set the rules as to how that decision will be arrived at and those rules will be changed periodically. Since those rules will be arrived at by the banks (without need for your consent), the outcome will most certainly not be in your favour.
Those who read this statement might react in one of three ways:
- “This can’t be happening.”
- “Okay, it’s happening, but there’s nothing I can do about it. It’s global.”
- “There must be something I can do to keep from being robbed.”
The first group will be the largest. They will freeze up, do little or nothing, and become victims.
The second group may complain and even struggle a bit against these developments, but won’t prepare sufficiently and, ultimately, will also become victims.
The third group will seek alternatives, and here’s where the light appears at the end of the tunnel. Yes, this effort will be international, but it won’t be fully global. There will be those jurisdictions that, traditionally, have not been willing to fall into line with the world’s foremost powers. They will not wish to go off the same cliff as the others and will take a different tack. They will be the recipients of those people who seek to escape the collapsing system. But, more than ever before, time is limited; the window is clearly closing.
Escape from Confiscation
The solution is surprisingly simple, although it will take work and dedication:
- If you’re a resident of any jurisdiction that’s presently going down this road, move your money to a jurisdiction that has a consistent history for stable government, low (or no) direct taxation, and minimal interference or regulation over wealth;
- Convert your wealth into those forms of assets that are hardest for rapacious governments to confiscate (foreign-held precious metals and real estate);
- Create an exit plan for your own physical escape, should it become necessary.
Editor’s Note: The War on Cash and negative interest rates are radical and insane measures. They are a sign of desperation.
They are also huge threats to your financial security. Central planners are playing with fire and inviting a currency catastrophe.
Most people have no idea what really happens when a currency collapses, let alone how to prepare…

Part 4: 20 More Signs That The Global Elite’s Ship Is About To Sink
The accelerating downfall of the Global Cabal, or the ‘NWO’ as some people call it, is fascinating to watch. While many are aimlessly watching the highly orchestrated “presidential race,” those paying closer attention are seeing before our eyes the old paradigm collapsing. Continue to dream big my friends, we are in for exciting and very positive times for our world.
Here it is:
1. October 16th, 2015: McDonald’s franchisees say the brand is in a ‘deep depression’ and ‘facing it’s final days.’ As many know, McDonald’s food has been used by the NWO to intentionally suppress the expansion of humanity’s consciousness as well as to create chronic illness and disease throughout the population. Humanity says no to the illusion and continues to rise above and throw off the chains…this is direct evidence.
2. October 18th, 2015: A leaked White House memo shows that Tony Blair and George W. Bush acted together a year before the Iraq invasion had even started. Interestingly, the documents were disclosed by Hilary Clinton per the order of U.S. Courts. You can be sure the White Hats in the Pentagon will soon be taking action on this.
3. October 22nd, 2015: China officially calls for new global reserve currency. Anyone who has read the previous 3 parts to this article knows the moves that have been taking place to get China in this position. Read what happened the next day…
4. October 23rd, 2015: “International Monetary Fund representatives have told China that the yuan is likely to join the fund’s basket of reserve currencies soon…Chinese officials are so confident of winning approval that they have begun preparing statement to celebrate the decision…” Now let break this one down a bit. Just a little over a month ago, certain IMF officials said the Chinese yuan was not likely to be included. Now we have, just a few weeks later, strong speculation that it will be included. As I’ve written and what we’ve seen from other stories in parts one, two and three of this article, the global alliance, which is being led by China and Russia, is in full control. It seems that some major shift has taken place within the IMF in the past few weeks now that they are preparing to include the yuan as reserve status as soon as this November. If we think about this even deeper, we see that the banking cabal really is stuck. If the yuan is included in the IMF’s basket of reserve currencies, the game is over for the cabal. If the IMF goes back on its latest word, China can still create a new global currency as they have already set up the BRICS Bank and AIIB (Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank). In layman’s terms, China and the positive global alliance have checkmated the banking cabal. Hang on to your hats as we are very soon now to enter into very large, paradigm-shifting financial and geopolitical changes on this planet.
5. October 23rd, 2015: Russia and Iran forge energy partnerships and may create new bank to fund the projects. This is another game-changer on multiple levels, including oil, finance and political and tactical strategy.
6. October 23rd, 2015: South Africa freezes student tuition fees after thousands of students protest in Pretoria, outside the president’s office. The power continues to return to the people. This fractal will continue to spread within the collective.
7. October 24th, 2015: CIA Director John Brennan has confidential and work-related information hacked by a young group hackers who claim “they can’t track us down.” With top level officials continuing to get hacked, the obvious question is, “who’s next?”
8. October 24th, 2015: Jordan has officially joined the Russian/Iranian/Syrian/Chinese/Iraqi alliance and will not work directly with these nations in removing ISIL from the Middle East. Also, Russian has now officially been given authorization for military strikes in Iraq (on ISIL). The global alliance continues to grow and strengthen.. True freedom for humanity is coming.
9. October 25th, 2015: Thousands of Israeli’s protest PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s stance on Palestine and call for peace talks with Palestinians. As we’ve discussed in the previous article, peace is the last thing the Cabal wants…However, peace and peaceful mindsets are spreading and it cannot be stopped.
10. October 26th, 2015: Afghanistan officially requests military assistance from Russia. The Cabal is systematically being kicked out of the Middle East. Add Afghanistan to the growing Alliance.
11. October 26th, 2015: Now that Catalonia overwhelmingly voted yes in favor of independence from Spain in late September, Barcelona’s Mayor plans to fulfill campaign promises by printing a cash-less local currency. Once again, this act serves as a ripple effect for other pro-independence countries and regions around the world.
12.October 26th, 2015: Iran announces that it plans to join the BRICS New Development Bank.
13. October 27th, 2015: Neil Keenan releases another update regarding the movement to open the global collateral accounts. As I’ve talked about in all three previous articles, the global collateral accounts are soon to be opened and will help to free humanity from NWO control. There are major lawsuits and arrests to come. If you wish to know about the greatest financial and gold cover-up on this planet, please inform yourself on the global collateral accounts.
14. November 9th, 2015: China to Allow Direct Conversion Between Yuan and Swiss Franc. Notice the growing trend of the yuan.
15. November 9th, 2015: An article is released describing the connection between 9/11, JFK and the global collateral accounts. A must read if you’re interested in any of those 3 topics.
16. November 10th, 2015: Anti-austerity bloc brings down Portugal’s government. Government’s that are controlled by the banking cabal will continue to crumble. The call for true freedom and justice is spreading.
17. November 12th, 2015: Pater Tenebrarum reports in an article titled, “Incumbents Swept from Office Around the World,” that there is a great sea change happening in the political scene of many large governments around the world. Those who have held positions of power for a very long time are being voted out.
18. November 12th, 2015: Over 100 campuses around the U.S. protest the insanity of student debt. We continue to see people claiming what we all deserve…a fair economic and education system.
19. November 12th, 2015: China discovers undersea gold reserves estimated at $16.4 billion. Is this a coincidence or a strategically timed announcement? Once again, we see gold and China as two themes that are continuously popping up.
20. November 13th, 2015: According to this site, the attacks in Paris were clearly another desperate false flag event. The attacks took place in the 11th month in the 11th district of Paris…on Friday the 13th. Very typical of ritualistic sacrificial numerology. The more that are awake and see through the illusion, the quicker it dissolves. We are awake and we know the truth….We send all those that may have lost their lives on this night much love.
Will you let others know of the current happenings? Will you share with humanity that all of the “Elite’s” plans have either failed or are failing? Seeing and noticing the demise speeds it up. The positive and fair system which will replace it is being built. Very good things are happening to restore sanity and justice to our world. Enjoy the ride and dream bigger than you ever have before; both for yourself and humanity.
Bernie Sanders Is Absolutely Right About Clinton and Big Banks—Here Are the Numbers to Prove It
The Vermont senator recently pointed to how Hillary Clinton’s relationship to Wall Street becomes clear when you look at how much she’s charged for speeches to Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and big banks. As an Intercept article plainly puts it in a headline, her fees for just 12 speeches amounted to “more than most of us earn in a lifetime.”
From The Intercept:
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders this week assailed rival Hillary Clinton for taking large speaking fees from the financial industry since leaving the State Department.
According to public disclosures, by giving just 12 speeches to Wall Street banks, private equity firms, and other financial corporations, Clinton made $2,935,000 from 2013 to 2015 … Clinton’s most lucrative year was 2013, right after stepping down as secretary of state. That year, she made $2.3 million for three speeches to Goldman Sachs and individual speeches to Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley, Fidelity Investments, Apollo Management Holdings, UBS, Bank of America, and Golden Tree Asset Managers. …
To put these numbers into perspective, compare them to lifetime earnings of the median American worker. In 2011, the Census Bureau estimated that, across all majors, a “bachelor’s degree holder can expect to earn about $2.4 million over his or her work life.” A Pew Research analysis published the same year estimated that a “typical high school graduate” can expect to make just $770,000 over the course of his or her lifetime. …
The Associated Press notes that during Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state, Bill Clinton earned $17 million in talks to banks, insurance companies, hedge funds, real estate businesses, and other financial firms. Altogether, the couple are estimated to have made over $139 million from paid speeches.

2016 Theme #5: The Systemic Failure of High Finance
This week I am addressing themes I see playing out in 2016.
A number of systemic, structural forces are intersecting in 2016. One is the failure of high finance to fix the global economy’s systemic problems.
The operative conceit of the past 7 years has been that high finance can fix whatever’s broken in the world’s economies. According to this narrative, all the world needed to boost “growth,” employment and profits was lower interest rates, more liquidity, reverse repos and some other fancy financial footwork.
Once all this high finance generated more borrowing by debt-serfs, property developers, students, corporations buying back their shares and financiers skimming billions from asset bubbles, systemic problems would be dissolved or mitigated.
Cheap credit, asset bubbles and immense profiteering by financiers would heal all wounds and make everything better for everyone, even those at the bottom layer of the economy.
Unfortunately, this isn’t true. High finance and cheap credit have intensified structural problems such as rising inequality, not resolved them.
The implicit promise of the neoliberal project is that liberalizing private-sector markets and credit will magically grease the processes of growth and widespread prosperity.
When economies have the right systems in place–decentralized, somewhat free markets, an entrepreneurial spirit, many unmet needs, idle productive capacity and a credit-starved real economy–freeing up static markets and credit can unleash the productive capacity of the bottom level of the economy.
But in economies dominated by state/private monopolies and cartels, neoliberalism simply funnels the profits of financialization to the few at the expense of the many, and at the cost of heightened instability and insecurity.
Making more credit available for student loans didn’t fix America’s broken higher education system–it only tightened the grip of the higher education cartel and turned another generation of students into debt-serfs.
Loosening mortgage standards and lowering interest rates didn’t turn America into an “ownership society”–it turned it into a boom-and-bust speculative society with many more losers than winners in the neoliberal/high finance speculative casino.
The essence of neoliberal high finance is the vast majority of gamers in the casino lose security and wealth, while the House (the state and the banks) skim the resulting profits. Main Street has found its security stripped away (sorry, Bucko, no yield on savings now; you have to belly up and place a high-risk bet at a gaming table to keep what you had before) in exchange for the potential of outsized profits.
But alas, the games are rigged; the financiers have first access to the Federal Reserve’s nearly free money, and insiders profit from stock buybacks and other financial gaming that generates monumental profits but zero goods and services.
If debt had grown in parallel with GDP and inflation, total credit market debt in the U.S. would be around $20+ trillion rather than $59 trillion. The difference is speculative excess, manifested in asset bubbles and staggering amounts of debt.
The casino’s losers get the debt, the winners skim the profits.
The only possible output of this system is rising income and wealth inequality:
Cheap credit doesn’t reverse the elimination of jobs via automation–it accelerates that processby making capital machinery and software cheaper than labor and labor overhead.
Cheap credit and high finance don’t fix what’s broken in our democracy–they have greased the skids to what we have now–“democracy” for the highest bidder by giving financiers and corporations the means to stripmine productive assets and use the gargantuan profits to buy political favors.
High finance isn’t the cure–it’s the disease.
What have the governments of the corrupt Western bloc spent most of their time doing since the Crash of ’08? We can answer this question in three parts:
1) Creating increasingly falsified “statistics” to fabricate the illusion that their economies were not on the verge of all-out economic collapse;
2) Hacking and slashing every social program in sight in order to generate the false savings known as Austerity; and
3) Creating new funny-money and taking on new debt at an exponentially increasing rate in order to delay collapse, since all that Austerity accomplished was an acceleration of these death spirals.
Making these points apparent to newer readers will require additional elaboration. The starting point is the Crash of ’08 itself. What caused these nations to go from being merely heavily indebted to hopelessly insolvent overnight? That can be summed up in a single euphemism of fraud and crime: “too big to fail.”
At the end of 2008, the West’s puppet governments succumbed to History’s ultimate act of blackmail at the hands of History’s largest and most rapacious crime syndicate: the One Bank . “Give us all your money, or we’ll blow up your entire financial system.” That is the real meaning of “too big to fail”: institutionalized extortion, in perpetuity.
What was the real price tag for this massive extortion operation? Forget the phony numbers published by our corrupt governments and their mouthpieces in the corporate media. The total quantum for these extortion payments was in the tens of TRILLIONS . Obviously the Deadbeat Debtors of the West couldn’t raise more than a tiny fraction of that amount of blackmail money up front. Thus, most of this shakedown of (supposedly) sovereign governments came in the form of future tax breaks and “loss guarantees.”
In the Shakedown of ’08, our governments did not merely clean out every penny they could scrounge from our public treasuries and borrow every penny that they could. In addition, they mortgaged the future of our children and grandchildren by pledging infinite corporate welfare for the One Bank.
Western governments had no money left to spend on their own people after committing tens of trillions in extortion payments to this banking crime syndicate while also having to deal with rapidly rising interest payments (to the same crime syndicate) on all their new debts. So Western governments then pulled out their chainsaws and attacked our social programs.
Infinite dollars in “interest payments” go to the crime syndicate; no pennies are left for the people. That is Austerity. However, so-called Austerity represents more than simply another act of economic treason against Western populations; it is also the self-inflicted, fatal wound for these economies.
Austerity treason took economies that were already in a slow-motion descent toward collapse and rapidly sped up that suicide cycle. The evidence here is overwhelming, but it can be summed up most easily in one word: Greece.
Greece has had far greater and more punitive amounts of Austerity treason heaped upon its victim population than any other regime in the Corrupt West. It was demanded by the economic sadists known as “the Troika”: the European Union, the European Central Bank, and the International Monetary Fund. The result? This nation was bankrupted twice within a span of five years.
Which nations are closest behind Greece in Europe’s Bankruptcy Derby? Spain and Portugal. These are the #2 and #3 nations in terms of inflicting the greatest amounts of this suicidal Austerity on their own populations. Austerity kills. More Austerity kills faster.
Here, people need to understand that it was always totally predictable that Austerity would fail. It was always totally predictable that Austerity would harm these economies more than help them. And this was predicted (repeatedly) in previous commentaries.
How do you make any economy stronger? The key lies within one of the most fundamental principles of economics: the Marginal Propensity to Consume. This law of economics is universally accepted because it is ½ simple arithmetic and ½ common sense.
In elementary terms, the fastest and easiest way to make any economy stronger is to place a dollar into the hands of a member of the Poor or Middle Class. Why? Because these people will spend most of that dollar (the Middle Class) or all of that dollar (the Poor) immediately. This extra dollar of consumption then gets divided up into wages, payments to suppliers, tax revenues for the government, etc.
Then additional portions of that dollar are spent and re-spent. This is known as “the multiplier effect,” and it explains why the Marginal Propensity to Consume is a universally accepted principle.
But what happens if we put a dollar into the hands of the Rich, rather than the Poor or Middle Class? By definition, the Rich person will hoard the vast majority of that dollar. As a matter of the simplest logic and arithmetic, no person can become “rich” unless/until they have spent years hoarding wealth, or they win a lottery.
Thus every time a Rich person receives a dollar, most of that dollar is hoarded and disappears from the economy. Only a few pennies of that dollar are ever circulated, and as a result the multiplier effect is virtually nil. This is known by the economic euphemism of “trickle-down economics.” Put all the new dollars into the hands of the wealthy, and only a few pennies will ever “trickle down” to the economy.
“Trickle-down economics” has been the official policy of nearly all of the traitorous governments of the Corrupt West since the start of the new millennium, and, in the case of the U.S., it goes back at least a full generation. This policy of everything-for-the-Fat-Cats and nothing for the Little People is one of the primary reasons for the relentless decay in our standard of living and the relentless collapse of our economies.
How do you then make these sick economies even sicker? Start taking extra dollars out of the hands of the Poor and Middle Class – Austerity. Every dollar of Austerity treason creates a Reverse Multiplier Effect: removing more and more dollars from the system and thus starving the economy of the fuel which allows our consumer economies to survive: consumer spending.
Austerity causes the economy to get even sicker, leading to larger deficits, more borrowing, and thus even higher interest payments to the parasitic One Bank. Debt slavery. The response from these puppet governments to this vicious circle? Even more Austerity. If something fails, do much more of it.
However, one Western nation that was caught up in the original Crash of ’08 did not climb aboard this treadmill of economic suicide and blackmail: Iceland. As a result, alone among the nations of Europe, Iceland enjoys real robust economic growth. The standard of living of its population is once again risingrather than falling as it is throughout the rest of the Corrupt West.
How? How did one, small island nation succeed while every other Western government failed miserably and completely? As with the economic suicide now practiced throughout the Corrupt West, Iceland’s success also traces back to the same four words: “too big to fail.”
What happened when Iceland’s Big Banks (more tentacles of the One Bank) arrogantly demanded that the government rubber-stamp the principle of crime of “too big to fail” – sacrificing the System in order to save the Big Banks? Iceland’s government responded that it had a different, radical idea: it would sacrifice the Big Banks, and save the System.
Iceland’s Big Banks folded. As with all blackmailers, the One Bank responded to Iceland’s refusal to be blackmailed by immediately lashing out in revenge. Among other things, it attacked Iceland’s currency (i.e. manipulated it lower), yet another criminal conspiracy for which the Big Banks have now been convicted.
However, Iceland’s government stood firm and did not cave in to the attempted extortion by this crime syndicate. It weathered the financial/economic reprisals. It proved that “too big to fail” was always nothing more than a lie and a myth created by the banking crime syndicate. No entity within any system could ever be more important than the system itself. This was always elementary logic. Iceland has validated that logic.
Iceland refused to be blackmailed. Iceland refused to take on the extra debt (and debt slavery) that came with the blackmail. Iceland refused to touch its social programs. Iceland has the strongest economy in the Western world.
Game, set, and match.
Dutchsinse: Hammond + Bundy “Ranches” — Volcanoes, Gold, URANIUM + BLM / Government
The whole thing in Eastern Oregon has smelled bad to me.
Smells like hmmm.. Ruby Ridge, with a tinge of the Montana Freeman infiltration and setup by the FBI (btw many of the Freeman were former US Marshalls who KNEW the laws as patriots), and then there’s Janet Reno burning down WACO compound and frying children, to save the children and all that.
And then there’s the Bundy’s The Sequel, coming to a ranching situation not their own. Something off in that. Sounds like someone cut a deal to create a scene for perhaps some slack on an earlier confrontation?
Did you know that many of the FBI agents who ran over Randy Reavers Dog at Ruby Ridge and then backed over it again to make sure it was dead, were later burned by their own masters, as they were brought up on charges of child pornography one by one. It was the Judges who started noticing all the guys brought up on charges were at Ruby Ridge. It has long been possible to take over the chip sets on computers and upload data to hard drives remotely. So the law enforcement people in that area of Oregon may want consider the prior history is of people who generate these kind of national confrontation scenes for national TV… they usually get burned by their masters, to cut the trail.
It really smells like a custom off-the-shelf national distraction. And OMG… have their ever pulled so many of them of the shelf in the last 12 months? Syria didn’t work, race wars didn’t start….hmmm what next, take down the constitutionalists (which the FBI considers terrorists in their films they distribute to U.S. Judges – heck they consider the Revolutionary War Minutemen of 1776 terrorists, and actaully say the films they were the first US Terrorists… yeah I know kind of makes you wonder which side of that war they work for now).
Here’s the glaring obvious about the Oregon Situation:
Susan Hammond, Dwight’s wife, explained the family’s version of the story.
“They called and got permission to light the fire,” she told the Tri-State Livestock News — which bills itself as “what ranchers read.” “… We usually called the interagency fire outfit — a main dispatch — to be sure someone wasn’t in the way or that weather would be a problem.”
Livestock News called the fire “a routine range improvement practice” and said proof that the family got permission was documented in a recording of the phone call played in court.
2. The Judges… When this kind of nonsense starts with sentencing over a 100 acre grass fire, sheesh,
You know some big guns want these people pushed aside. A grass fire, which may well have been a routine ranching practice. Mexican immigrants lit many damaging wildfires in San Diego County and not much of anything happened to them. Millions of dollars of property went up in flames.Who would go to this much effort to start a national grass fire over a grass fire? Who could that be? Perhaps some gold hungry Chinese Royals? (Hint they can’t deliver) Which really own the US Corp anyway. And perhaps that’s the real reason for this bit of I AM transparency coming to the fore at this time? Just to show who gives the orders through their British proxies? We will see. Hard to know how these things play out in advance.
Hogan — who sentenced Dwight Hammond to three months in prison and Steven Hammond to one year and one day — was overruled by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, which upheld the five-year mandatory minimum sentence in October and ordered that the Hammonds be resentenced accordingly. Yet, the Hammonds, on their way back to federal prison, have chosen to distance themselves from the Bundys
So much for double jeopardy in the courts, huh?
I thank Dutchsinse for his investigation skills. My sense it goes deeper than he thinks, but I do think GOLD and URANIUM is a big part of the picture.
Gun confrontations is the turf the so called “Government” excels at. Its a really stupid clumsy way to bring change. They know how to kill. They’re really good at it.
Plus they got insiders in every newspaper that plant the stories and frame the narrative they way they want it framed, and no crisis goes to waste, more calls for gun control, more propaganda aimed at convincing you that you really are a danger to yourself and that you need the government to tell you want to do.
There’s a lot of stuff about to come to light. A bit of chaos. And none of it is going to go the way the people who put together this Machiavellian tension/release Hegelian dialect shit want it to go.
Obama could end this now. He could pardon the Hammond’s and bypass all the nonsense and illumanti stuff that you know is behind all this divide and separate people maneuvering. And why not, he’s a lame duck President, nothing to lose. He’s the CEO of the US Corp. Make an executive decision. I mean is all this really worth the expense and costs its anger that will result from what is about to happen? Over a grass fire? Only to some overgrown egos who like to wave guns and badges and gavels. It would take the fire out of this instantly, and take the rhetoric down to a level of civilized human beings might actually resolve some of these issues.

On January 1st, 2016, the new bail-in regime became law putting at risk the deposits of savers and companies in the EU.
EU countries join the UK, the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand in having plans for bail-ins in the event of banks and other large financial institutions getting into difficulty. It is now the case that in the event of bank failure, personal andcorporate deposits could be confiscated.
The bail-in architecture was seen in the Cyprus bank bail-ins that were seen in 2013. Then, deposits of over €100,000 were confiscated in “haircuts” in order to bail out banks in Cyprus. Now the exact same principles that were used in Cyprus – which we were told was unique and a one off – are going to apply to all of Europe.
Bail-ins and the risks they pose have largely been ignored in most of the media. In one of the very few articles on bail-ins in recent days, Hugh Dixon of Reuters Breaking Views has looked at bail-ins but has focused on the “political risks” rather than that posed to savers and indeed company depositors:
The European Union entered a brave new world of bank “bail-ins” at the start of 2016. Europe has wasted so much taxpayers’ money on bailing out bust banks in recent years that it is right to try to get investors to help foot the bills in future. However, the tough new regime carries big political risks.
The article, ‘EU enters brave new world of bank bail-ins’, is interesting despite ignoring the financial and economic risk of bail-ins – they would likely be very deflationary in a world already beset by deflation – and can be accessed here

Paris — Michael Lewis is the chronicler of Wall Street. He takes the complexity behind which the inhabitants of the financial world hide and weaves a tale that is both understandable and compelling. Starting with the classic “Liars Poker” (1989), Lewis has produced a number of books about the financial markets including “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” (2014) and “The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine” (2010). Working with director Adam McKay and some great actors and screen writers, Lewis has managed to produce what is perhaps the most accessible and relevant treatment of the mortgage boom and financial bust of the 2000s, and the subsequent 2008 financial crisis.
The beauty of “The Big Short,” both as a movie and a book, is that it provides sufficient detail to inform the general audience about events and issues that are not part of everyday life. Wall Street is a secretive place, but “The Big Short” manages to convey enough of the details to make the story credible as a journalistic effort, yet also enormously entertaining. Lewis does this with two essential ingredients of any film: a simple story and compelling characters.
Images of greed and stupidity are presented like Italian frescos in “The Big Short,” pictures that are memorable and thought provoking. Indeed, what many people know and remember years from now about the 2008 financial crisis will be shaped by creative efforts such as “The Big Short” for the simple reason that Lewis has simplified the description into a manageable portion. Unlike hedge fund manager Michael Burry (played by Christian Bale), most people lack the patience and expertise to sift through and understand reams of financial data.
Fund manager Michael Baum (played by Steve Carrel) is likewise a perfect caricature of the Wall Street loner, the contrarian personality who looks for situations where everyone in the crowd is headed in one direction – a sure sign that they are wrong. Baum’s willingness to take on the big banks – including the firm that sponsored his hedge fund – illustrates how difficult it is for a contrarian to prevail when all of the mega institutions on Wall Street are betting against you. Then we have the delicious irony of banker and narrator Jared Vennett (played with evil delight by Ryan Gosling) betting against his own firm by facilitating short sales of toxic derivative mortgage securities.
“The Big Short” has rightly earned the acclaim of audiences and critics for presenting the sometimes seamy world of finance in a way that a broad audience can understand with relative ease. As with any narrative of past events, the story must be simplified and summarized to make it manageable, either as a book or even more so as a film. But here’s the rub: in order to tell the story, Lewis had to employ people and personalities to make his description accessible. By doing so, he conveys to the audience only part of the story, emphasizing the role of people and leaving by the wayside the other, equally important and largely opaque institutional and legal aspects of the financial markets that enable fraud and skullduggery.
For example, just why was it that firms like my old employer Bear, Stearns & Co, Lehman Brothers, Wachovia, Countrywide and others were originating sub-prime mortgages and selling securities based on this toxic waste? Did the employees and officers of these second tier firms just decide one morning to focus on the most problematic credits in the residential mortgage market at a time when every agency in Washington was encouraging home ownership and the Fed had cut interest rates to historical lows? Stoking the mortgage boom via cheap credit, never forget, was a deliberate policy choice by the Housing Industrial Complex and the Federal Open Market Committee, a process accelerated following the shock of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
In fact, the reason why these smaller financial firms became the mud-sucking bottom feeders of the world of mortgage finance was because the top four mega banks and their partners at the federal housing agencies in Washington the “GSEs”) had monopolized the prime mortgage market, both for loan originations and sales of government guaranteed mortgage bonds. The big banks dominated the short-term funding market that piped liquidity to the likes of Countrywide, Washington Mutual and New Century Financial, none of which had sufficiently stable bases of liquidity to support their huge lending volumes. The housing GSEs, meanwhile, dominated the long end of the bond market, issuing securities at yields far below that possible for any bank or non-banks, large or small.
As the mortgage market crazed neared its peak in 2004-2005, the period when the anti-heroes of “The Big Short” began to realize that something was seriously amiss, the GSEs and big banks began to acquire exposures in sub-prime mortgages. Indeed, the top banks by then had started to compete aggressively with the GSEs, pushing the market share of these three government agencies below 50% so that they could issue private mortgage bonds and derivatives at even bigger profits. Today the housing GSEs account for virtually all mortgage lending in the US and the largest banks are actually exiting the market for making residential loans.
Government policy and the fact of the big bank-GSE monopoly in the market for prime mortgage loans drove the housing crisis as much or more that the stupidity and greed so skillfully portrayed in The Big Short. Because such details are the eye-glazing stuff of documentaries, not popular feature films created to drive Hollywood profits, Lewis could tell us only part of the story. Part of the artistry of Lewis is that he understands that in the 21st Century, every successful book must be written as a potential movie script.
The same shortcoming affected the fascinating Lewis book “Flash Boys,” which tells a story of smart traders and computers giving the big Wall Street trading firms an advantage over small investors. In fact, the “advantage” enjoyed by the big program trading firms is embedded in the myriad of complex order types of the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ – all of which are public and available to anybody with the knowledge to use them in their investment strategies. But only a handful of traders and institutional investors have that knowledge. Again, complexity, not just greed and avarice, are the drivers of financial contagion.
Another wonderful aspect of “The Big Short” is the way in which McKay explains the world of derivatives and complex financial instruments like the nefarious “credit default swap” or CDS using a casino as the foil. CDS allows the characters in the story to bet against the subprime mortgage market. Unlike a short sale of a stock or bond, though, a CDS truly is a gaming instrument that allows a speculator to sell something they don’t own and cannot borrow to deliver against the short sale. Recalling the wisdom of Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis almost a century ago, an incomplete sale “imputes fraud conclusively.” (Read our November 24, 2015 KBRA research note, “Can the Credit Default Swap Market be Salvaged?,” if you want to learn more about these dubious financial contracts.)
The casino scene in The Big Short exquisitely illustrates the way in which credit derivatives allow speculators to wager against different types of assets (and one another) without having to actually “complete” the sale as, say, with a short position in stocks like Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) or Facebook (NASDAQ:FB). All of the concerns with credit derivatives ultimately start with the simple fact that buying a CDS when one does not own or borrow the underlying bond is akin to “naked shorting” of stocks. Sure, the short-sellers in the world of CDS must pay extortionate fees to their “bookie” to maintain their best over time, but a credit derivative allows speculators to create a short position that does not exist in the cash market and without any connection to the underlying basis for the trade.
What neither the book nor the film get around to telling us in full is that Washington’s embrace of gaming instruments like CDS not only helped the characters in the story bet against subprime mortgages, but also enormously amplified the scope of the 2008 financial crisis. By institutionalizing the use of CDS as an acceptable part of the world of investing, Washington made the mortgage boom and bust possible and far worse than a mere financial bubble in housing. You get a hint of this near the end of the film when Carrel meets with his sponsor at Morgan Stanley and discovers that the firm has $14 billion in exposure to subprime debt via derivatives. CDS allows the creation of massive risk that would otherwise not exist.
If Michael Lewis ever gets around to making a sequel to “The Big Short,” he should tell the story of how Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan, SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt, Senator Phil Gramm (R-TX), Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers, and many others, conspired to attack and discredit Commodity Futures Trading Commission Chairman Brooksley Born in order to make the world safe for credit derivatives and the big banks that traffic in them. This badly misguided action by these senior government officials make the acts of greed and stupidity so beautifully portrayed in “The Big Short” pale by comparison. As we noted in the KBRA research note on CDS:
“[A]gencies such as the Federal Reserve Board in Washington have for decades publicly advocated the growth of OTC derivatives as activities that are appropriate for banks. When several large, internationally active banks began to expand into OTC securities and derivatives, and lobby in Washington for even greater powers and exemptions, the Fed Board and other regulatory agencies were either caught unaware or actively supported the expansion of the OTC market for subprime debt and derivatives.”
Sure, mortgage brokers making liar loans in FL were partly to blame for the mortgage crisis of the 2000s, but as my friends Josh Rosner and Gretchen Morgenson documented so well in the 2012 book “Reckless Endangerment: How Outsized Ambition, Greed, and Corruption Created the Worst Financial Crisis of Our Time,” Wall Street certainly must share the credit for this catastrophe with a generation of policy makers in Washington. The monopoly position of the big banks and GSEs, combined with the infinite leverage of unregulated credit derivatives, are equal factors in the story.
Don’t get me wrong, Michael Lewis is a fabulous writer and author, and “The Big Short” is a great book and an even better movie. We owe Lewis, McKay and everyone involved with this film a debt of gratitude for telling at least part of the story of the financial crisis and telling it so well. Indeed, as my new wife Nicole and I walked around Paris over Christmas, we saw lines of people waiting to see The Big Short, an appropriate scene given the role of some of the largest French banks in creating complex derivatives based upon American subprime mortgage debt.
If my vote counts, The Big Short deserves a lot of awards for both the acting and the directing of a very complex story. But never forget that derivatives like credit default swaps are the fuel that turned a mere bubble in the US housing market into a global financial meltdown, the effects of which are still being felt eight years later.

Last week, Congress passed CISA by hiding it in the middle of a sure-to-pass spending bill, and Obama signed it into law … even though the Department of Homeland Security had previously said that the bill will HURT national security and destroy privacy (numerous experts agreed).
And – just like with previous spying laws – the government has a secret interpretation of CISA which will make it even worse.
So why was the bill passed?
The highest-level NSA whistleblower in history – William Binney – the high-level NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information, 36-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency, who served as the senior technical director within the agency, and managed thousands of NSA employees – explains that corruption is what’s motivating mass surveillance against the American people … and it’s what’s making us vulnerable to terrorism.
Washington’s Blog asked Binney what he thought of CISA, and he said:
This is just another example of the White House, leadership (if you want to call it that) in Congress, the intelligence committees, and the intelligence agencies manipulating the system to get what they want (more money and more knowledge to control).
Clearly, CISA would not stand on it’s own; so, they had to sneak it through buried inside a massive funding bill at the end of the year.
Again, we see just another example of corruption in our government in Washington DC. They don’t have the courage or backbone to stand for what they want out in the open where there can be an honest debate like we are suppose to have in a democracy.
The established political parties should not be confused as to why citizens are sick of them. Our only solution is to fire them all in the next election and try to get honest citizens in these jobs.
Binney points out:
It would be good if most people in DC read the [articles of impeachment against Richard Nixon]. Nixon did only a miniscule amount of what the last two presidents and their co-conspirators have done and continue to do.
Unhappy with the demands for bribes from local officials, a disgruntled snake-charmer in the Uttar Pradesh region of Northern India took anti-corruption matters into his own hands…
Act of Terror? Or patriot?
The Big Short Reveals the Shady Underside of Mortgage Markets
by Neil Garfield, published on Living Lies, on December 14, 2015
Back in 2007, at the height of the foreclosure crisis, Citibank CEO Chuck Prince told the Financial Times that, “As long as the music is playing, you’ve got to get up and dance. Prince continued, “we’re still dancing.” It appears the Big Banks are still dancing- while the judiciary has turned into a giant electronic music festival sponsored by an unconcerned judiciary and impotent government agencies. Since 2007 nothing has changed- consumers are still being foreclosed on by banks who have no standing to do so- and the foreclosure epic continues unchecked.
The Big Short, a film written by Michael Lewis (Moneyball, The Blind Side, The Big Short), will be released on December 23rd, 2015 and will hopefully provide enough outrage that Americans take to the street in protest. The movie, starring Brad Pitt (who also produced), Steve Carell, Christian Bell and Ryan Gosling- tells the story of five real estate investors who were able to anticipate that subprime mortgage loans were engineered to create the illusion of security, and exploit the market for personal gain. Michael Lewis, in his book by the same name; stated that, “Whenever an investment opportunity is presented with a high degree of security and confidence, it should warrant extra scrutiny.” In lieu of the mortgage crisis, truer words have never been spoken.
The movie reveals that the real estate crash resulted, in part, from the shadowy bond and real estate derivatives markets created by the banks to create the illusion of security. These incredibly complex and impenetrable securities were created to take advantage of lower and middle class Americans who were leveraged by stagnant incomes, high household debt, and a nationwide recession. The banks offered Americans predatory loans they couldn’t afford and knew they would fail. The banks then proceeded to bet against the loans they had created, foreclosed on homes they didn’t own and proceeded to make trillions of dollars in profit off of the misery of homeowners who lured into illegal loan contracts.
Starting in approximately the year 2000, banks began issuing mortgages that often required no down-payment and often contained adjustable rates. People began purchasing more home than they could afford believing that real estate would continue to drastically increase in value after an unprecedented run of growth. When the bubble popped in 2007, the fraud began to be exposed and it became obvious that the multi trillion-dollar mortgage bond market operated in a shadowy area without SEC oversight. (see Shadow Banking) The Big Short is a movie that attempts to illuminate the casino like real-estate investment market- but despite Brad Pitt’s best efforts The Big Short only touches on the fraud that has been perpetuated on the American public.
The Big Short will reveal to the general public, who are still relatively unaware of what caused the real estate market to collapse, how “collateralized debt obligations” and “credit default swaps” led to unprecedented financial market fraud — the selling of “loans” that never happened 5, 10, 20 even 40 times over and then getting an unsophisticated judge to give a rubber stamp of approval on the wind-up pf a scheme that depended upon the illusion of legality.
Perhaps once people understand how their homes, retirement funds, and livelihoods were exploited by Wall Street and corporate banking interests- they might force the judiciary, government agencies and representatives to finally resolve this issue. Brad Pitt said he decided to produce The Big Short because, “It’s a story that needs to be told because nothing has changed.”
The Big Short injects humor into an issue that has destroyed the lives of millions. In one scene, mortgage brokers are seen explaining how they are pushing risky adjustable-rate loans on unqualified buyers- because those mortgages provided higher broker fees than placing borrowers into safer loans. “Why are they confessing?” Carell asks one of his employees. “They’re not confessing, they are bragging,” the employee responds. On November 24, 2015, the New York Times asked comedian Steve Carell to describe what a synthetic collateralized debt obligation was. Carell, taking a breath, responded,” You have CDO A and CDO B, and you can combine those two and put them into a CDO C, which is then made up of CDO A and B. CDO C is the synthetic CDO.” The reporter proceeds to ask Carell where he plans on keeping his money, Carell responds, “My Mattress.”
Carell echoes the sentiment of millions of Americans who have no faith in their governments, the markets, the banks or the courts. If the United States government and courts don’t deal directly with the banking fraud situation that has been allowed to continue for over 14 years now, Americans are going to lose faith and refuse to participate. It will be fascinating to see how the general public responds to this enlightening film.
The Big Short successfully conveys how families, who were subjected to predatory loans, fell victim to soaring unemployment, a recession and declining home values. However, the film fails to effectively demonstrate the fraud the banks perpetuated (and continue to perpetuate) on unsuspecting consumers, investors, and the courts.
The mortgage debacle was a criminal banking enterprise motivated by greed with no consideration for the Americans who fell victim to their predatory scheme. The Big Short fails to develop this critical element of the mortgage story. Towards the film’s end, Christian Bale’s character accuses Goldman Sachs of failing to fairly price his market bets until the bank could repackage and off-load their own liabilities onto other investors. In reality, in-house traders at Goldman were describing their own mortgage bond offerings as garbage while selling this ‘junk’ to investors and profiting handsomely. The big question is why aren’t any of these bankers in prison for their criminal venture?
The Big Short does not delve deeper into the fact that the banks have foreclosed on homes they don’t own, claimed to have funded loans they didn’t fund, and have deceived the courts in millions of foreclosure cases nationwide over the past decade. In order to cover their original fraud, the banks have resorted to more fraud in order to escape detection by filing fraudulent affidavits, forged mortgage notes, and false assignments in county records and in the courts. Although I have only reviewed movie trailers to date, I am interested not so much in the film, but how the public will respond. Will some borrowers secure mortgage audits to see if their loan was securitized? Will others conduct chain of title assessments? Will others take to the streets and demand change? The banks are not going to stop their ongoing fraudulent lending practices, court deception, or the creation of indecipherable, deceptive investment vehicles- until they are forced to. Without action, we can expect future bubbles, recessions, depressions and market volatility. Hopefully The Big Short will incite consumers to demand change.

When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything. Based on the true story and best-selling book by Michael Lewis (The Blind Side, Moneyball), and directed by Adam Mckay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) The Big Short stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt.
Brad Pitt stars as an investor who made a massive profit on the 2008 financial crisis.
Seven years after Lehman Brothers collapsed, “This ‘greed is good’ mentality is still alive and well,” he says.
Pitt produced and co-stars in the screen adaptation of Michael Lewis’s mortgage crisis book, “The Big Short.” He says he doesn’t love to walk the red carpet, but made a point to for this film. It’s an effort to decode Wall Street’s insider language and show the financial crisis from the perspective of the real life story of a handful of odd-balls and outsiders who saw the housing bubble’s financial engineering and worked hard to profit from it.
“I’ve watched all the documentaries and I’m still trying to understand it all. And it wasn’t until Michael Lewis’ book that really helped me get to the bottom of the rabbit hole to see what was going on,” Pitt says.
He says he was angry about the financial crisis before he read Michael Lewis’s book. He optioned the rights to the film, and was even angrier after he read the screenplay.
“Yeah I’m angry. You see families put out on the street and losing their savings and mortgages and not knowing why. This film attempts to explain it.”
Explain it, in some novel ways. The film stars Ryan Gosling as a Wall Street trader who looks directly into the camera to translate mortgage-backed securities. (Yes, I said Ryan Gosling and mortgage-backed securities in the same sentence.) It’s a gimmick filmmaker Adam McKay also employs actresses Selena Gomez and Margot Robbie and CNN’s own Anthony Bourdain. McKay departs from the action of his rag-tag band of short-sellers to turn to various celebrities to be translators of Wall Street lingo. Bourdain demonstrates the slicing and dicing of mortgages into tradable securities at a hibachi grill with rotten fish.
McKay says his gimmicks were meant to make the insider language of money and power more understandable. (Think tranche, collateralized debt obligation, credit default swaps.)
“I think it is the language of power. It is what drives the world. I think they (Wall Street) love that half of the people find it boring or feel too stupid,” McKay says. “This subject affects (our) lives more than all the reality shows, sports programs, gossip, everything you can combine.”
Actor Steven Carrell admits he didn’t fully understand the financial crisis before making this film.
“It’s a language that was created … to kind of separate the banks and the institutions from the people, so they wouldn’t really understand. It makes people feel stupid. It’s easy to not understand,” he says. “I didn’t know much about the 2008 crash. I knew that it happened. I knew the ramifications,” he says, but after working on this film, “It’s frustrating and terrifying.”
Carrell plays an angry pessimistic hedge fund manager with unrelenting paranoia, convinced he is getting screwed by the big banks. He bets against the housing market and screws them back, but even that doesn’t make him happy, because by winning against the banks he knows the American people are the ultimate losers. Christian Bale plays a one-eyed, barefoot investing savant betting everything on a housing crash. The film blasts the banks and ratings agencies and skewers everyone from mortgage brokers to bond salesmen and Washington policymakers. The material is heavy, the fallout catastrophic, the actors angry. But curiously, the film is often funny. Just this week it was nominated for a Golden Globe award as a comedy.
The film is more strident than Michael Lewis’s book, but the conclusion of each is the same: It took outsiders and pessimists to see the truth, because the insiders were making too much money to care.
I asked Lewis why this movie matters seven years after the crash. After all, stocks recovered and rose sharply for six years. Twelve million jobs have been created, and home prices are rising.
“I don’t think the culture has entirely processed the event because there wasn’t a reckoning. There wasn’t a punishment,” Lewis says. “The banks are bigger than they were before. There’s been attempts on the margins to kind of rein them in, but it requires internal vigilance of the society when you have these institutions that are this big and this powerful to stop them from doing something bad again,” he says.
So have Wall Street and the public learned a lesson?
“I’m hopeful at some point we’re going to sort out our relationship to finance and money. It will be a healthier system. Do I think it’s going to happen real soon or out of this campaign? No. If it didn’t happen in the heat of the moment, it will probably take another crisis.”
By MCH Harper, published on December 19, 2015
Well, yes, I did do it. The responsibility falls heavily on my own head. I really did create my own financial fiasco, and all in alignment with what’s much required for my soul’s and many other’s evolution who chose to be here in this timeline. For whatever agreements and contracts have made with the Universe to come forth and “shed Light in a dark corner”, currently, I find myself in the process of foreclosure on my home, means of livelihood, retirement investment and inheritance. Due to several life changing events; divorce, bad investment Ponzi schemes congruent with a 2007 push to refinance my mortgage, then quickly manifesting life threatening health issues and devastating medical debt, well, that all set up the situation for where I’m at now.
What emotional impact has this had on me and my loved ones who are worriedly watching in the wings? Only speaking for myself, for awhile I felt very brave taking on this TILA (Truth In Lending Act) Rescission process it felt completely the right thing to do. Then, as my financial demise drained away my energies, I started to watch some of my oldest friends move as far as they could to the back of the drama-trauma auditorium. Well, who wouldn’t be stunned and embarrassed, and not without unsaid judgments oozing around my decision to stand up?
This is scary stuff for those who have always followed the rules and recipes for achieving the American Dream. Poverty eclipses affordable choices and does often drown out the expensive kinds of fun options. This retreat quickly etched on my heart wretched feelings of victimization, a sense of separation, alienation with fearful shame from my oldest friends who aren’t yet quite up to facing the Awful Truth of the Grand Deception we all are party to. It goes so deep, and though they are still looking away, I see clear signs now of peeking over their shoulders a bit, coming around as I walk this path.
We are not completely estranged from our lifetime relationships, but very close to finally calling it quits. Still, maybe I’m not deemed a complete foolish flake after all. But it isn’t over yet and my door is still unlocked and open cautiously guarded by my ever present ego.
I HAD to flip my expectations and perceptions drastically, and viscerally now feel volunteering and shopping at the Food Bank is something everyone should experience. Gone is what I thought was our mutual standing in feminine solidarity, an unsaid support for each other no-matter-what, embracing life’s injustices toward women. Being independent, non-partnered and without a second income brings up issues dear old Gloria Steinem drummed on about in “Ms” articles. My own epiphany is that it isn’t just women and minorities being abused here on a grand scale, but that EVERYONE is being abused. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I am not the feminist I thought I was. My real stand is humanistic support for our basic value for universal humanity and Creator given rights.
Hey, I forgive my dear friends and family who still don’t get it. Life has chewed them up in other monstrous forms because coming to Earth at this time in planetary history isn’t for weenies, and I can’t blame them for being too tired and too scared themselves to jump on my personal soapbox. They’ve contributed to the good of all in their own important ways. We do what we can do within our present consciousness, and taking on the behemoth banking system without an in-depth education into our shadowed global, national, and banking history, isn’t recommended, and I wouldn’t want anyone to go through the angst, fear, depression, roller-coastered with flashes of hope and renewed trust in Self and bolstered by those beloved family and friends who have stepped up to assist me. I am now a devout believer in the Steel Magnolia Dolly Parton twangy cliché “ The Lord works in Mysterious Ways”.
However, even if one doesn’t have an ounce of energy left to officially get involved and stand forward, one can go outside, stand solidly on Mother Gaia with knees flexed a bit, and proclaim loudly or softly, and energetically in Spirit, that you just don’t consent to any more deception by the seen and unseen, and that you cancel all unlawful contracts. Fraud vitiates all contracts.
That’s better than doing nothing and it is a form of taking back your power and also aligning with those who are out there on the front lines. The key is you’ve got to mean it with every fiber of your being and believe in your heart of hearts that loving help is on it’s way. It’s called Faith, baby.
I purchased my home in 2005, and to augment what now can be described as my Ponzi-backed post massage therapist retirement fund, in 2007, I bought the bank hype and snapped up the opportunity to “leverage” my money and refinanced my mortgage, all so I could add more to my retirement savings. I had some major catching up to do from the economic hit I took in a divorce. To date, the Ponzi boys are sitting in the slammer up in Calgary, Alberta, doing 10 to 12 years having pulled off the biggest investment scam in Canadian history and bilking thousands of others out of millions and millions. Even though I personally went to Canada and Honduras to check these guys out, thinking I was doing my own due diligence, I laughingly come away from the whole of these experiences realizing I was double-Ponzied, first by the Canadians and now through mortgage securitization schemes.
Like millions and millions of other naive homeowners, unsuspectingly I signed what I thought was a lawful contract with what I thought was a safe institution with integrity and multiple governmental safeguards for the consumer. Following being financially wiped out and jobless, due to multiple hospitalizations, I paid the last bleeding payment I could March 3, 2009.
Stressed, broke, scared, but slowly building back my physical stamina, I began to study— avidly looking for possible magic bullets for debt relief. Believe me, I tried everything I could to get the debt discharged in good faith. I went to numerous seminars led by debt grief relief gurus, read eye-watering article after eye-watering internet article and books by whistle-blowers, gave up mainstream news, poured over alternative internet sites, listened to numerous educational conference calls, talk shows and recordings long into the night, and could only speak about any of this with the few friends I felt I had left, those being in my same imminent foreclosure predicament. At the risk of losing all friendships, I found I literally was leading a double life.
There were the superficial every day survival conversations with people, then there was the life I had in my office at the computer exploring my options for keeping my home. Everything was tried that I could that well-meaning, and not-so-well-meaning “light workers” put out there to throw back at the Cabal and their debt slavery-making systems. Some meant well, and others were charlatans, and several white hats were most likely manipulated and brought down because they were just too damn close to the truth about our “government.”
Earlier this year, I began studying Neil Garfield’s website Living Lies about TILA (Truth In Lending Act) and Rescission. He has an 8-year history of researching and recommending TILA rescission as a possible means for voiding out commercial contracts. Studying his blog articles which by the way are written so that they are fairly easy to understand, I began to feel it in my solar plexus that this was the right remedy, at least for my situation, all along.
January 2015 the unanimous US Supreme Court Jesinoski v Countrywide decision vindicated Mr. Garfield’s stand on rescission, and opened up more and more test cases regarding Rescission. Just recently in November a Federal Oregon judge decided on another huge rescission case in favor of the homeowner. If you are not familiar with this, there are many interesting articles available on the Garfield site that explain just how simple rescission is.
I must say here and now that if you are hanging by your exhausted thumbs and swinging in the wind with regard to imminent foreclosure, you must do your own education on this, and this posted article is not to be construed as legal advice. I’m just telling you about my own process.
In June, I received a Notice of Default on my door, albeit past the statute of limitations for debt collection in my state. Honoring my own internal radar, I sent in my own rescission to void out the Deed of Trust and Promissory Note. At that time, I had not retained an advocate counselor to advise me.
July 23, 2015, the same day that I sent in my TILA rescission, I received a Notice of Trustee Sale. Curious, yes? One night, that week going through what I call a Dark Night of the Soul, I reached out somewhat testily in exasperation and not even politely asked the Universe/Creator to help me with this; that if I was going to stick my neck out and go with this process, I needed a financial infusion if I was to continue to carry the load of this work.
A week later, out of the mysterious blue, a most generous family member stepped up and offered to help me, and with that help I retained a local advocate attorney, one with sharp claws, and one who understands the Garfield rescission process and recommended by Garfield. Since then, my cheerleading family member has several times told me not to give up, to keep going, as at times I tearfully wanted to just go to bed and pull the covers over my head and whimper. Then I also remembered the other friends going through the same scenario, and those who have badgered out late into the night the scabs and warts of the bank’s paperwork, and brought forth important truth about the unlawfulness of banking shenanigans.
One issue that came bubbling up through all of this has been my profound distrust in general of all lawyers knowing how they are by oath loyal to the Crown (the City of London). What I have known all along is that I am not a good pro se litigant. I just don’t have a sharp memory and legal mind, nor confidence to stand up and spout my knowledge on rules of procedure and rules of evidence. Yet, what occurred to me was that I was co-creating change within a very corrupt system and that a true litigator with a pure heart for anti-foreclosure advocacy needed to be the front person to bring about change by cleaning up the courts and educating her professional peers. It was her time to step up to the judges and give it her best shot. I brought forth the test case, and the pro needed to make the truth of it be heard.
The defendants had set a date for Trustees Sale in November, and then last minute filed for Continuance of Trustee Sale for early January 2016. My heart was in my throat most of November because I didn’t understand nor trust the process of my own powerful creation. I kept wondering by my tendency for negative default thinking if I was going to have to gather my camping gear and go live under a freeway bridge somewhere with my rescue cats.
Then recently, someone wise and very important to me gently but firmly advised I get out of my own Creative Being way, to step back and let the lawyer do her thing. She was so right.
The law suit is primarily testing the waters of my right to rescind under the Truth in Lending Act. It cannot and does not go into the myriad bullet points of reasons why I would contest the contract in the first place. These are separate issues of violations. I have unlawful assignments by MERS, unlawful Robo signings, interesting unlawful notarizations, unlawful Appointment of Successor Trustee, unlawful Declaration of Beneficiary, invalid Notice of Default, and violation of statute of limitations, to name a few. What used to be a mortgage document is nothing but a phantom wheel of Swiss cheese now voided by my TILA rescission.
I don’t think opposition is going to want this to get out, and so I am telling my story now in case I won’t be able to later.
What I do know right now in this process is that just in the last week I have started to sleep better; KNOWING no matter what the outcome might be, I have done the best I can– already.
But would I do it all again? Again? Really? Plod through the heartbreak and frustrations of Trial and Error? Not sure I could go through the bad health event again, however. Even though today I don’t know what the outcome really will be, as that could be drawn out to two years or even more, and I am loathe to say it, but yes I would do it all over again. Why? Because if I hadn’t gone through all this self-inflicted excruciation, I wouldn’t be able to say at the End of the Day I did everything within my I AM Being to help bring in the Light for Change for us all.
I feel I am on the front lines, but really I’m not. There are others sticking their necks out even more than I have. Neil Garfield and my lawyer to name a couple.
My vision for the next generation to come will be that we live and know complete freedom, with our Creator given rights and gifts unimpeded, and that we evolve with the concept that we cause no harm to all creation and that everyone has complete understanding of their own responsibility to cause no harm. That means learning to work together. That means creating a world at Peace, being Peace. Thus, abundance flows toward everybody.
With that, I implore anyone who is unconsciously creating a living from the foreclosure industry and flourishing at the sorrow and hardships of others, to rethink your own culpability in supporting global slavery. Now that you know what you have contributed to, what will you say at the End of your Day? Find the compassion that lives within you, embrace your true humanity, and step away from harmful choices that destroy others’ spirits. Find another way to support yourself and family. Humanity and the Universe will support you if you do this. You just have to let go and trust it. You are Loved right now, no matter what, but if you change your career choice, you will actually begin to feel loved again and maybe even revel in it.
“Those who don’t keep an open mind to all possibilities by hiding their heads in the sand, ultimately take the risk of never finding out why and who “moved their cheese” and why we continue to wage perpetual war for the benefit of the Puppet Masters.” MCH Harper

Major Change In Financial System That JFK Started Will Be Reality Soon-Shadow Government Crumbling
I saw JFK Murdered when I was very young and I knew that the event was a Major thing even though I was so young. JFK was Murdered for several reasons one being he was in the planning stages of creating an American Currency and he wanted to use Monies that where available to help the American People and All of Humanity. Monies that very few hard working Americans even knew existed and unfortunately most Americans still do not know about the Treasure Cache.
There is no Gold, Silver, or real money shortage and since the time of JFK and even before. All of the Monies were meant to be allocated for All peoples of the earth for Humanitarian purposes. The monies have not been allocated properly and have been misused by the Dark Agenda with only one goal in mind; The creation of the New World Order and the Financial Enslavement of All Mankind which are not part of their Order and or Society.
Thanks to Freedom Warriors working hard for True Freedom the Vision JFK had is about to become a reality.
Below is an update published here with permission. Americans it is time for All Americans to Stand Up and Become a Freedom Warrior so True Freedom can be Obtained. More info at end of this Article. Neil Keenan: Continuing on with and furthering their work… SALUTE!
Today we received the following information from an anonymous individual going by the name “Asian Insider”: “After spending the past week discussing matters with Neil about the earth-shaking meeting that we attended, I have decided, with Neil’s permission, to construct an update regarding what can be classified as an imminent major change in the financial system. For security purposes, we agreed that I would withhold my name in order to protect me and my family. You can post this if you like, or keep it to yourselves and wait until Neil completes the deal and returns to Jakarta. But I thought it would be kind to keep everyone abreast of the sweeping financial changes that are now shifting into place.
I hope you enjoy the news: Late in the evening on November 25th, a meeting took place in an Asian country (not Indonesia) with: the Elders,[ Elders is a general name given to Honor the Ones who have been watching over the Monies for several years] who represent the largest depository of the Global Collateral Accounts (GCA) assets (worth Quadrillions); [This amount is correct...think of the Treasury of Solomon and this will help give One a mental picture] the Spiritual Advisor to the Elders; Jo, who served as the translator; and Neil Keenan. Security was very tight – what seemed like an “army” of guards safeguarded the home where the meeting was being held.
Realizing that many such meetings in the past had resulted in nothing but empty promises, Neil was cautiously optimistic. Still he voiced his thinking that “maybe this time it’s different, maybe this is ‘it,’ the doors are opening and the Global Collateral Accounts (GCA) at long last would start flowing to humanity,” — as it was all originally meant to be.
After catching up with one another, the meeting kicked off with the startling revelation that the Elders have been holding a cache of assets for Neil for over a year now, waiting for a “safe” time to transfer them to him. With bands of mercenaries relentlessly patrolling the bunker areas in hopes of stealing the assets for their bosses (George Soros and the Rothschild family), the transfer of the cache to Neil poses mortal danger for every single person involved. So far four Elders have been murdered by these maniacal mercenaries. It’s become common knowledge there about the mercenaries being severely cruel and merciless with anyone found in the vicinity of the bunkers. Their prime directive is to block Neil and his team from getting to the assets. The mercenaries follow no rules on how this gets accomplished.
After briefing Neil about the assets that are waiting for him, and that the “safe” time for their release is at hand, he was further surprised to learn that a year ago the Elders had also drawn up “letters” for him to sign. Upon his signature, Neil Keenan would be known as Number 1 (N1) — or, as the position is more commonly known, M1. [ This means the real monies of the earth will be managed by an honest person for the first time in many many years and will not be used for corruption and the establishment of the NWO any more ] It was by unanimous consent among all of the Elders that they elected Neil as N1. Had there been even one dissenting Elder, he would not have been elected. Presently the documents are being finalized and sent to Neil for his signature. He will be given full Power of Attorney over their depository of GCA assets and officially become the Elders’ sole representative and spokesperson for all dealings and the release of the funds to implement the Humanitarian Projects.
Should he accept the responsibility of being N1, Neil will control the issuing of the assets to 132+ Nations. To this he held some objections because after all, governments are criminal corporations that would simply pocket the asset funds rather than implement any humanitarian projects. But Neil came up with an acceptable solution. A Foundation will be established with the GCA and his “umbrella” organization through which the funds would flow for worldwide humanitarian projects.
No banks, governments, corporations nor individuals will have direct access to these funds without going through the Foundation. The funds will be distributed first to Indonesia and then to each of the 132+ Nations for projects such as the release of free energy and suppressed technologies, the cleaning of our water and the restoration of our oceans and lands, rebuilding infrastructure, education programs, etc. etc. However, this designation of N1 did not seem to enthuse Neil, and immediately he discussed the group that he would like to set up to oversee such matters. Neil stated that he would direct his professional team to ensure that the distribution of funds and resulting projects are successfully initiated and maintained for their intended purpose.
As the meeting came to a close, the Elders made one additional point clear — that Neil is free to venture forth with his own undertakings but with one provision: that he never loses sight of Indonesia. There was no contention on this provision because Neil wants the Spiritual Advisor by his side and the support of the Elders. And since it is well-known that Neil’s intent has always been to see that Indonesia becomes the “Jewel of Southeast Asia,” this strong alliance with the Elders guarantees the most positive outcome possible. At this point, the meeting ended, and Neil and Jo returned to their hotel.” So there it is — should Neil Keenan sign the documents, he will be N1 (= M1) for the worldwide distribution of the GCA assets. Meanwhile on the other side of Asia, Nelu had met with a group of Elders who will assist in opening the Accounts and getting Neil and the team set up. I must say that this has surely been a double-barrel effort by both of them to get things rolling!
For nearly 100 years the Indonesian Elders have held these notes on behalf of the depositors. They have not been able to make use of any of the notes because the Western banking system has shut them down every step of the way. It cannot go without saying that the Elders have not been given any remuneration for what they have safeguarded for so long. Some have been assassinated, and some have been imprisoned for their roles in spite of the fact that each and every move the Elders have made has been entirely legal. Yet in Europe the Western banking system has illegally managed to get hold of notes and use them as “casino bonds,” freely gambling them on anything they chose – they never worry about losing what they don’t own.
But now it cannot be denied that the game is changed. Drastically. Not only does Neil have the old codes from the Book of Codes, he also has all of the New Codes. Once the accounts are opened and audited, the codes will reveal precisely who played with the depositors’ notes.They can continue to ignore the consequences at their own peril. It is no secret that solid arrangements are being set up where all of these criminals will be held accountable for their atrocities and then “quarantined” to a place where they can never again control and decimate another planet.
[ Once all the Dark Agenda people are exposed in American and any place else Arrest Warrants will be issued and proper Justice will be served on the Ones who have been stealing from Americans and other for so long...It is all on the wheel and it is coming around...It is time for the corruption folks to pay their dues ]
They never foresaw such an outcome. They never believed that this day would ever come. But it has. Last-Ditch Ploys of the FED — Last month a group representing the Federal Reserve arrived in Indonesia and approached several Elders. This group claimed they would cash in or monetize the assets that the Elders were holding but only on one condition: the Elders could do no business whatsoever with Neil Keenan. Of course the Elders are well aware of the crimes that the Federal Reserve foisted upon humanity since its very inception in 1913. They’re well aware of what President Sukarno and President Kennedy tried to do 52 years ago.
In fact, the Elders are well aware of a lot more than what wealth will do for this planet. They know their legacy is ultimately a spiritual one, the only eternal value. That even such a proposal would be presented to the Elders reflects that the FED is in such deep denial as to be inconceivable. No normal human being wants perpetual war and planetary destruction. No normal human being wants more pain and disease. No normal human being wants any more of the darkness that the Cabal has created on this planet. But it still remains an all-out, high-stakes game for the Cabal. Their massive desperation is evident everywhere, more than ever.
Their desperation is no longer just internet “hopium” chatter. Pathetically, this escalated “theater of terror” orchestrated by the Cabal is hardly a dignified swansong. A reminder for them: it does not have to be this way. The truth is that in every single moment a new choice can be made. The change is upon us all now and instead of events that sweep the world with devastation, we will now see events that sweep the world with positive creation. Once Neil gains access to the GCA and the funds start flowing, it means the utter dismantling of the Cabal. This is the catalyst we have been working for. The playing field will now tip in our favor, and their insane reign comes to an end. It can be no other way.
As one group of Elders has repeatedly told Neil: “We have been waiting for you for 30 years Mr. Keenan, and now you are here.” The nations of the world elected President Sukarno as M1, the monetary controller of the GCA. Now the Elders have elected Neil Keenan as N1. Neil has been responsible for the protection of the GCA for more than six years, and like the Elders, there has been no remuneration for their efforts. They have selflessly laid the groundwork for what is to come. Who can say what untold millions of lives, or even future generations, have been saved due to their groundwork. Without a doubt, Keenan stands as a one-man wrecking crew. John Lennon taught us to Imagine.
Ahead of us, we as a collective have meaningful, fulfilling jobs to do for the betterment of mankind and the planet. I am sharing the big picture of what I’m seeing now because I feel compelled to have as many as possible imagine and embrace the concept that we will now being given the means to rebuild our world. We ALL need to be thinking about this and envisioning what we want because it is the only way to make it happen. We will evolve. We will live up to our potential as a species. What is happening is On Time. Our Time. Believe it.” Asian Insider
Americans Stand Up
How to Take Your Money Out of the Bank Without Going to Prison
The banking industry is absolute chaos as their criminality is being exposed for the entire world to see. S&P just downgraded JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, B of A, Wells Fargo and 4 other banks. The economy is in free-fall. Yoy best get your money out of the bank.
It is now widely known that the derivatives debt is over $1 quadrillion dollars and some of the rank and file in this country are concerned that their bank accounts, 401K’s, IRA’s and pensions will be confiscated by desperate, tier two bankers, who are forestalling the inevitable currency collapse by stealing your money.
The time to have taken your money out of the bank was yesterday. There is very little time before the IMF’s plan to steal 10%, for starters, of all bank accounts in Europe. JP Morgan Chase is banning wire transfers from their bank to foreign banks to prevent American capital flight which will surely happen as America wakes up to the desperate situation that the banks are in. The bank is also prohibiting any cash withdrawals of $50,000 or more. This past Friday, HSBC (America) followed suit. It is highly likely that all 5 megabanks will enact the same policies in the near future.
Although, most Americans are free to leave the country, it is becoming exceedingly difficult for Americans to take their money with them. Preparing for expatriation is a daunting task and I do not believe that most of us have the time or the ability to get our assets out of the country as well as make detailed plans and implement those plans in advance of the coming crash as we attempt to leave the country. Therefore, most of us are going to be forced to adopt an adaptation strategy.
With all that is available to read on this topic, it is mind boggling regarding how few people are preparing to act to preserve what assets they have remaining by not removing their money from the bank. Because you have put your money in the bank, you no longer own your money. Taking what was your money out of the bank is no longer a matter of walking up to your friendly teller with a withdrawal slip and the teller cheerfully honors your request and you calmly exit the bank with your money in tow. In fact, your teller is trained to look for certain indicators in any cash withdrawal of any significance.
As you move to withdraw the bulk of your money, there are three federal banking laws that you should be cognizant of, namely, Cash Transaction Report (CTR), a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) and structuring.
Federal law requires that the bank file a report based upon any withdrawal or deposit of $10,000 or more on any single given day.The law was designed to put a damper on money laundering, sophisticated counterfeiting and other federal crimes.
To remain in compliance with the law, financial institutions must obtain personal identification, information about the transaction and the social security number of the person conducting the transaction.
Technically, there is no federal law prohibiting the use of large amounts of cash. However, a CTR must be filed in ALL cases of cash transaction regardless of the reason underlying the transaction.
Before proceeding with the planed withdrawal of your money, I would strongly suggest that you read the following federal guidelines as it relates to CTR’s as produced by the The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). All the federal regulations contained in this article are elucidated in this series of federal reports.
Structuring and SAR
There will undoubtedly be some geniuses whose math ability will tell them that all they have to do is to withdraw $9,999.99 and the bank and its protector, the federal government will be none the wiser. It is not quite that simple. Here are a few examples of structuring violations that one should be aware of:
1. Joe has obtained $15,000 in cash he obtained from selling his truck. He knows that if he deposits $15,000 in cash, his financial institution will be required to file a CTR. Instead he deposits $7,500 in cash in the morning with one financial institution employee and comes back to the financial institution later in the day to another employee to deposit the remaining $7,500, hoping to evade the CTR reporting requirement. Joe should have used multiple accounts to conduct this transaction.
2. Sally needs $16,000 in cash to pay for supplies for her arts and crafts business. Sally cashes an $8,000 personal check at a financial institution on a Monday. She subsequently cashes another $8,000 personal check at the bank the following day. Sally is careful to have cashed the two checks on different days and structured the transactions in an attempt to evade the CTR reporting requirement. Sally should have made irregular deposits on staggered days.
3. A married couple, John and Jane, sell a vehicle for $12,000 in cash. To evade the CTR reporting requirement, John and Jane structure their transactions using different accounts. John deposits $8,000 of that money into his and Jane’s joint account in the morning. Later that day, Jane deposits $1,500 into the joint account, then $2,500 into her sister’s account, which is later transferred to John and Jane’s joint account at the same bank. Again, John and Jane should have used multiple banks.
The aggregate total of the three transactions totals more than the $10,000 threshold, therefore, a SAR would be filed by the bank and you would be the subject of a federal investigation as all three of the above cases clearly violate the federal banking laws related to structuring. It is a federal crime to break up transactions into smaller amounts for the purpose of evading the CTR reporting requirement. In these instances, the bank is required to file a SAR which serves to notify the federal government of an individual’s attempt to structure deposits or withdrawals by circumventing the $10,000 reporting requirement.
Structuring transactions to prevent a CTR from being reported can result in imprisonment for not more than five years and/or a fine of up to $250,000. If structuring involves more than $100,000 in a twelve month period or is performed while violating another law of the federal government, the penalty is doubled.
Much like the enforcement of our tax laws, the federal government’s enforcement of its banking laws as it relates to CTR’s, SAR’s and subsequent structuring is quite draconian. Civilian asset forfeiture laws come into play. The government can seize your bank accounts while it determines if a crime has been committed. The government can literally seize your assets in perpetuity without an order of the court. Of course, you could try and sue but you will be up against the deep pockets of the federal government and the case could take years. By the time your case is decided, the financial banking crisis that you are so desperately trying to avoid by withdrawing your money, could be over. So, proceed with caution.
Withdrawing Your Money From the Bank
The best way to avoid getting your money caught in the bank in the midst of a bank run would be to not let the lion’s share of your money ever cross the bank. The simplest way to accomplish this is to prevent any form of deposit from going automatically into your account, as much as it is possible.
Secondly, you need to begin to pay cash for everything. Let’s say that every 30 days, Bob cashes his check at the bank from his work worth $5,000 net pay. Bob leaves just enough in the bank to be able to conduct normal banking business. Bob walks out of the bank every month with the majority of the cash from his check. Bob should begin to pay cash for as much as he can, such as eating out, paying the electric bill (pay the bill in person), buying groceries, etc. When it becomes necessary to make a “big ticket” purchase, Bob could temporarily leave more in the bank to cover the writing of a check.
You would also be wise to open multiple banking accounts ranging from the big five megabanks to your local credit unions. You could withdraw much smaller amounts until the sum total of your accounts is greatly diminished and is in your possession. To open the accounts, simply write a personal check from your home bank. Of course, in these cases, the bank could hold the check for 15-30 days.
I cannot promise you that if you become the target of federal investigators, that you will not have your every financial move scrutinized and the feds will eventually discover the aggregate patterns of withdrawal. People who I interviewed told me that they believe that the federal government is in the process of getting the banking computers to “talk” to each other in a way that would reveal structuring, but that technology is not yet online.
If you ever become the target of a federal investigation, do not, under any circumstances, allow yourself to be interviewed by federal officials without an attorney present. In many cases, people go to jail and pay huge fines, not because they have committed a federal crime, but because federal officials state that they have lied or misled them. And if you do not have an attorney present, it is your word versus the federal government.
In an upside-down world in which the banks legally own your money, getting your money away from these criminal banks has become an art form. I cannot promise you that you will be able to retrieve all of your assets, however, I can promise you that if you do not act, you will lose everything.
More Fear Mongering Wrapped Within a Conspiracy Theory
By Dave Hodges – Common Sense Show
Since the $18 trillion dollar debt, the $240 trillion dollar unfunded liabilities and the $1.5 quadrillion dollar derivatives debt, the all-time low ratings of the Baltic Dry Index, the massive amounts of food on the docks of several of our ports, the fact that the Trans Pacific Partnership is poised to seize control of both the US economy and the political process in America means nothing to the flocks of sheep in this country, perhaps there is a another number which will capture the attention of these people. The number is $80 trillion dollars.
The United States taxpayer is on the hook to JP Morgan and Bank of America for nearly $80 trillion dollars, apiece, in order to cover their share of the derivatives debt. Raise your hand if knew that. We must have a lot of broken arms in America this morning. Amazingly, very few have mentioned this in the three years that this “silent” bail-out has been in effect.
First of all, if you are one of the millions of customers of these banks, you need to realize that the entire GDP of the planet is under $70 trillion dollars and your bank owes more money to the originators of the Credit Swap Derivatives than the entire value of the planet, per mega bank! Take your time, I will wait right here as you rub your eyes and reread the previous passage… The facts are so indisputable, that even mainstream publications such as Bloomberg are reporting on this reality and have been since 2011 when the Federal Reserve and the FDIC guaranteed the derivatives debt for JP Morgan and Bank of America for derivatives debt up to almost $80 trillion dollars each.
Even Robert Reich previously wrote an editorial piece expressing grave concern over the state of the derivatives debt, the U.S. mega banks and how the U.S. taxpayer is now on the hook to support the trillions of dollars of derivatives debt. The situation is so dire that Bank of America shifted its derivatives debt, previously located in its Merrill investment banking unit, to its banking depository arm, which magically was given access to the Fed discount window and is protected by the FDIC (i.e. that would be you).
In 2013, Bank of America had a little over one trillion dollars in deposits. The FDIC is guaranteeing the derivatives debt for this bank to the tune of almost $80 trillion dollars. And the entire GDP of the planet is less than the FDIC guarantee. This is a prescription for economic Armageddon.
Solely based upon the condition of the megabanks, it is a foregone conclusion that these bank customers are going to lose their assets. Since the U.S. only takes in $2 trillion dollars per year, where is the money going to come from to cover the derivatives debt? The interest on the derivatives debt is exploding faster than we can pay the interest on it. This one set of circumstances is enough, on its own, to collapse the U.S. economy. This could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. However, we have a lot of straws sitting upon the backs of the American camel.
1. The national debt.
2. The national deficit.
3. The stock market bubble.
4. The MERS mortgage fraud which has stolen an estimated 13 million homes.
5. The 1.5 quadrillion derivatives debt.
6. The record low Baltic Index which speaks to the health of the global economy.
7. Record consumer credit debt.
8. 5o million Americans on food stamps.
9. Shadow Stats which states that 23% of Americans are unemployed and underemployed
10. A weakened military as we sit upon the edge of World War III at a time when Obama is downsizing our military and firing its leadership base.
11. Increased foreign reliance of food imports (20% of the total).
12. The FCC is trying to gain control over the Internet in an attempt to silence the opposition of the independent media. Google and Facebook
13. Food inflation which some estimate to be at about 18%.
14. The media is owned by six corporations who have helped to create this problem.
15. Christians and their religion are now under attack while other religions are being glorified in contrast (see Rocky Mountain High School, Ft. Collins, CO).
16. The oil bubble has burst.
17. The housing bubble has burst.
All hell is ready to break loose.
Yet, there is nothing wrong to the millions of sheep which are still enthralled with the mainstream media and their false doctrine based upon elite servitude.
For millions of Americans, it is time to go through a personal debt and personal resource allocation. It is time to get one’s spiritual house in order. It is time to reorganize your life in order to meet the challenges of the new reality which is upon us. It is time to lock arms with fellow Christians who refuse to comply with illegal orders, laws and executive orders.
No one organization has all the correct answers about what to do with one’s resources because America is in uncharted waters. However, there are some common sense things that can be done that you can do to help improve your chances of survival and that will be the topic of the most requested article that people want me to write on which asks the question “What should I do with my (spiritual, physical and financial) assets?
Oh, by the way, is your money still in the bank?
Peter Schiff and “11 Alarms Being Ignored As The Global Economic Crisis Is Getting Deeper”
In the following video, Peter Schiff pokes fun at the fact that the experts at the Federal Reserve are assuring all of us that everything is going to be just fine. In fact, Janet Yellen is convinced that things are so rosy, that she seems quite confident the Fed will raise rates in December. She’s basing her recent remarks on statements about how the economy, and the labor market have met the central bank’s goals. What economy and labor market is she looking at? Back in mid October, Jim Willie Gave 20 Reasons Why Quitting Prepping After a September Collapse Never Came Was Wrong… Now, Michael Snyder of the Economic Collapse Blog says the same thing. In the article below he says:
Many people are waiting for the big crash, but the truth is that almost everything has crashed already.
Oil has crashed.
Commodities have crashed.
Gold and silver have crashed.
Junk bonds have crashed.
Chinese stocks have crashed.
Dozens of other stock markets around the world have already crashed.
But the big event that many are waiting for is the crash of U.S. stocks. And just like in 2008, it is inevitable that a U.S. stock crash will follow all of the other crashes that I just mentioned.
In addition to the massive financial bubbles in the world’s two largest economies, there is also a growing crisis with respect to Emerging Market Debts in what once looked like promising young economic nations. In the following video, Jim Willie discusses why everyone who was preparing for a total economic collapse, or for the end of the world back in the month of September was NOT wrong to do so; they were merely premature in their estimates for the timeframe. Jim explains that it’s not just the U.S. that has massive debt problems.
All the debt in emerging market nations was estimated at around $8 TRILLION DOLLARS not that long ago, and already that same emerging market debt is in excess of $15 TRILLION DOLLARS. To fully grasp the weight of how that impacts us here in the U.S., and to put into perspective how bad the coming global collapse will be, Jim explains that for those emerging nations, in addition to being in their economic infancy making them fragile to being with, their ability to repay their skyrocketing debt is dependent on how their currency is doing in terms of THEIR local market economy.
Listen, everyone knows the U.S. is by far the world’s largest debtor, but don’t expect the U.S. to default or to admit we need to restructure our debt. Oh no. No way! Not that. Washington is WAY too corrupt and stubborn for that, and the average American is FAR too financially illiterate to understand what is really happening. Americans who want to ACT like they have a clue what is happening will parrot television talking heads and say things like, ”Default,” that CANNOT happen! ANYTHING but that. Then ask them why? CRICKETS.
As part of that restructuring you can count on the emerging market nations not only restructuring their debts in amounts at least equal to what their currency was devalued by (in local economic terms), but they will also demand that the debt be removed from the U.S. Dollar denomination, because the world has seen this enough times now.
The U.S. has refuse to learn ANYTHING from our previous monetary mistakes, and for our willful ignorance, the rest of the world is going to deliver us back to the stone age when the Dollar is stripped of the Global Reserve Status. As has been explained many times before, that is not a process that happens overnight, but it is one that has been WELL underway for some time now. The removal of emerging market nation debt from a Dollar denomination will act as the final nail in the coffin for both the United States and the Dollar.
In the video below, Peter makes a point to point out how little Gold Hedge fund mangers are actually holding, which shows the level of risk they are subjecting their investors to, by not having anything to hedge the overinflated market. It’s literally stupefying how the talking heads on TV won’t stop touting anything that resembles positive economic news, but completely ignore the bad news coming from the economy.
Pay particular attention to Peter’s assessment of the horrible manufacturing numbers, and how that led to QE1. HOW THEN, could the Fed even think about raising rates, or is this part of the ongoing con job by Janet Yellen and the Fed? IF the Fed raises rates, it appears they will do for only one reason: To show they can, the economy and what happens be damned. We are watching yet one more example of how the U.S. learns nothing from its own mistakes. Below, Michael Snyder points out 11 economic alarms that should be going off LOUD in every American’s ears, yet it’s so quiet you could hear a pin drop.
Economic activity is slowing down all over the planet, and a whole host of signs are indicating that we are essentially exactly where we were just prior to the great stock market crash of 2008. Yesterday, I explained that the economies of Japan, Brazil, Canada and Russia are all in recession. Today, I am mainly going to focus on the United States. We are seeing so many things happen right now that we have not seen since 2008 and 2009.
In so many ways, it is almost as if we are watching an eerie replay of what happened the last time around, and yet most of the “experts” still appear to be oblivious to what is going on. If you were to make up a checklist of all of the things that you would expect to see just before a major stock market crash, virtually all of them are happening right now. The following are 11 critical indicators that are absolutely screaming that the global economic crisis is getting deeper…
#1 On Tuesday, the price of oil closed below 40 dollars a barrel. Back in 2008, the price of oil crashed below 40 dollars a barrel just before the stock market collapsed, and now it has happened again.
#2 The price of copper has plunged all the way down to $2.04. The last time it was this low was just before the stock market crash of 2008.
#3 The Business Roundtable’s forecast for business investment in 2016 has dropped to the lowest level that we have seen since the last recession.
#4 Corporate debt defaults have risen to the highest level that we have seen since the last recession. This is a huge problem because corporate debt in the U.S. has approximately doubled since just before the last financial crisis.
#5 The Bloomberg U.S. economic surprise index is more negative right nowthan it was at any point during the last recession.
#6 Credit card data that was just released shows that holiday sales have gone negative for the first time since the last recession.
#7 As I mentioned yesterday, U.S. manufacturing is contracting at the fastest pace that we have seen since the last recession.
#8 The velocity of money in the United States has dropped to the lowest level ever recorded. Not even during the depths of the last recession was it ever this low.
#9 In 2008, commodity prices crashed just before the stock market did, and late last month the Bloomberg Commodity Index hit a 16 year low.
#11 If you look back at 2008, you will see that junk bonds crashed horribly. Why this is important is because junk bonds started crashing before stocks did, and right now they have dropped to the lowest point that they have been since the last financial crisis.
If just one or two of these indicators were flashing red, that would be bad enough.
The fact that all of them seem to be saying the exact same thing tells us that big trouble is ahead.
And I am not the only one saying this. Just today, a Reuters article discussed the fact that Citigroup analysts are projecting that there is a 65 percent chance that the U.S. economy will plunge into recession in 2016…
The outlook for the global economy next year is darkening, with a U.S. recession and China becoming the first major emerging market to slash interest rates to zero both potential scenarios, according to Citi.
As the U.S. economy enters its seventh year of expansion following the 2008-09 crisis, the probability of recession will reach 65 percent, Citi’s rates strategists wrote in their 2016 outlook published late on Tuesday. A rapid flattening of the bond yield curve towards inversion would be an key warning sign.
Personally, I am convinced that we are already in a recession. There is a lag in the official numbers, so often we don’t know that we are officially in one until it is well underway. For example, we now know that a recession started in early 2008, but in the summer of 2008 Ben Bernanke and our top politicians were still insisting that there was not going to be a recession. They were denying what was actually happening right in front of their eyes, and the same thing is happening now.
And of course if the government was actually using honest numbers, we would all be talking about the recession that never seems to end. According to John Williams of shadowstats.com, honest numbers would show that the U.S. economy has continually been in recession since 2005.
But just like in 2008, the “experts” at the Federal Reserve are assuring all of us that everything is going to be just fine. In fact, Janet Yellen is convinced that things are so rosy that she seems quite confident that the Fed will raise interest rates in December…
Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen signaled Wednesday that the Fed is all but certain to raise interest rates this month for the first time in nearly a decade, saying that gains in the economy and labor market have met the central bank’s goals.
Her comments at the Economic Club of Washington amount to the strongest indication the Fed has provided so far that it will take action at a December 15-16 meeting.
This is the exact same kind of mistake that the Federal Reserve made back in the late 1930s. They thought that the U.S. economy was finally recovering, and so interest rates were raised. That turned out to be a tragic mistake.
But this time around, any mistake that the Fed makes will have global consequences. The rising U.S. dollar is already crippling emerging markets all around the globe, and an interest rate hike will just push the U.S. dollar even higher. For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “The U.S. Dollar Has Already Caused A Global Recession And Now The Fed Is Going To Make It Worse“.
Sometimes I get criticized for issuing these kinds of alarms. But just think of how many people could have been helped if they would have known that the financial crisis of 2008 was going to happen ahead of time.
The exact same patterns that we experienced back then are playing out once again right in front of our eyes, and the more people that we can warn in advance the better.
An Attention-Grabbing Headline
“The first shot in the War on Cash?”
The headline caught our attention. We’d just finished researching and writing about the “Deep State” for the latest issue of our monthly publication, The Bill Bonner Letter.
This is something you’re likely to hear more about. The Deep State describes the way the U.S. government really works, rather than the way it’s supposed to work.
Over the years – hardly noticed by the press or the public – a group of insiders has taken control of Washington.
Originally the term “Deep State” was coined to describe various anti-democratic coalitions within the political system of Turkey (Turkish: derin devlet). In them meantime the term is widely used to describe all types of “state-within-the-state” type arrangements, the real power behind the throne, so to speak.
Some of them are familiar government hacks and politicians. Some, largely anonymous, are in the private sector. And some represent foreign governments, foreign businesses (notably banks), and foreign organizations.
These zombies and cronies – who number in the thousands – have much more power and authority than 100 million voters. Research shows that if they want legislation, they get it.
Voters, on the other hand, get what they want only rarely… and probably only because the insiders want the same thing. The insiders get the money, too. The tens of trillions of dollars diverted into boondoggle bailouts, QE, and ZIRP, for example – they had to go to someone.
And now the Deep State is setting itself up to get even more…
Now you know why it had such large eyes and such big teeth …
Two Kinds of “Cash”
Dr. Matthew Partridge in our London office reports for Money Week magazine that a small Swiss bank has become the first retail bank in the world to charge customers negative interest on their deposits.
A number of central banks – including the Swiss National Bank – have already taken benchmark interest rates below zero. But, beginning next year, Alternative Bank Schweiz (ABS) will be the world’s first bank to pass those negative rates on to customers.
Alternative Bank Schweiz is a so-called “sustainable” bank that tries to save the planet by funding all sorts of “green” and “ethical” investments. The “ethical investment” fad is in our opinion largely based on exploiting people’s gullibility (the same principle is at work in expensive bottled water and many “bio food” items). This is not meant to cast aspersions on ABS specifically, since there exist of course also organizations and individuals in this field who are genuinely trying to do good. We are instinctively wary of do-gooders and world improvers though, as they usually either strive to enlist the coercive power of the State or thrive on exploiting the innate guilt of first world populations (guilt over having it better than others and allegedly destroying the planet in the process).
In a letter to its customers, ABS said it would charge account holders 0.125% a year to hold their “cash” deposits to protect its profit margins. And anyone with 100,000 Swiss francs ($97,316) or more on deposit will have to pay 0.75% a year. Let’s stop here for a moment and clarify…
There are “cash deposits” and there is “cash.” Cash deposits are an oxymoron. If you say you have cash in the bank, you are mistaken. The bank doesn’t really hold “your” cash. It owes you money. If it goes broke, you’ll stand in line with other creditors to get it (subject to whatever guarantees may be in place… and however well they may work).
Cash in hand is different. It is physical. Paper. You can do what you want with it. And you don’t pay a negative interest rate. Which is why the feds want to ban cash. They say it will make it easier for them to stimulate the economy.
As long as you can hold physical cash, you have an easy way to escape negative interest rates: You just take the money out of the bank and put it in your home safe. But if physical cash is illegal, you have no choice. You have to keep “your money” on deposit at the bank… and take whatever negative rate the bank imposes on you.
Sheer insanity: the Swiss National Bank has set three month LIBOR at an average ofminus 75 basis points.
Of course, the idea that taking away your money will stimulate economic growth is ridiculous. As former banker, hedge fund manager, and expert on the fiat money system Warren Mosler recently told Bonner & Partners Investor Network subscribers:
“First, central bankers have got the interest rate thing backward. They think lowering rates will somehow stimulate the economy.
But negative interest rates are just a tax. You start off with a certain amount of money – say, $100. If the rate is negative 1%, then you have $99 at the end of a year.
Isn’t there some theory that says when people’s money goes away, and they have less, they spend less?”
If negative rates don’t really encourage spending, why bother? This brings us to the real danger of banning cash… and perhaps the real reason the feds want to do it – more control.
Reports William N. Griggs at The Free Thought Project under the headline “Drone Pilots have Bank Accounts and Credit Cards Frozen by Feds for Exposing U.S. Murder”:
“For having the courage to come forward and expose the drone program for the indiscriminate murder that it is, four vets are under attack from the government they once served.
The U.S. Government failed to deter them through threats of criminal prosecution, and clumsy attempts to intimidate their families. Now, four former Air Force drone operators-turned-whistleblowers have had their credit cards and bank accounts frozen, according to human rights attorney Jesselyn Radack.
‘My drone operators went public this week and now their credit cards and bank accounts are frozen,’ Radack lamented on her Twitter feed. This was done despite the fact that none of them has been charged with a criminal offense – but this is a trivial formality in the increasingly Sovietesque American National Security State.”
The four former drone pilots and whistle-blowers whose electronic financial life was simply erased as punishment for their audacity to inform the public about the murderous practices of the drone program. No court order or indictment was required – the State simply flipped a switch, depriving them of the means to defend themselves. Land of the Free, indeed.
If we are forced to keep our money in the bank… and cash is outlawed… the Deep State will have total economic control over us all.
(American Kabuki comment: “I’ve come to the conclusion that finance is a religion, and economists are the preachers who spread the catechism of capitalism. Problem is, a bit like how preachers haven’t a clue about things spiritual, the reality of finance is quite different that the orthodox dogmas taught by economics professors. Banking is about energy, the current of energy coming from humans (who are Source inbody), that current of energy is abstracted out by debt and converted to “currency” called money to hide where it all comes from. Why hide it? Because it comes from you and they don’t want you to know it was stolen by treaties, commerce systems, and programming disguised as education. Its your energy conglomerated into a system of control by central banks. One of the things that used to frustrate the heck out of me was they could never tell me in college, what money really was. Similarly physics professors could never tell me what time was. Turns out they couldn’t tell me because both are illusions. There is only energy, the flow of energy and NOW. -AK”)
Economists are fools
by Dan Slater for EURObiZ Japan
OPINIONS NOV. 27, 2015 – 06:41AM JST ( 12 )TOKYO —
I hate to lead with such an aggressive title, but over the years, nobody (apart from bankers) has upset me more than economists.
I have been reading the stuff published by economists for decades. In China, where I worked for 12 years, GDP growth became like a religion. Thousands of articles were written on the topic, each of them quoting economists. In the process, the glorious city of Beijing was laid waste, but that is another story.
The malign and fruitless obsession with GDP growth, and the part played by economists in encouraging it, is why I think economists are fools.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is the latest leader to fret about GDP growth. Yet this is misguided, for several reasons.
GDP growth is merely a measure of activity. What growth per se does not reveal is the nature and quality of that activity. As most economists are actually well aware of, you can maintain GDP indefinitely if you are rich enough. For example, knocking down and re-building a house is a way of generating GDP, even if the various iterations of the building show zero improvement. Of course, at some point you will run out of money.
It is clear that GDP growth is a blunt, or even ‘dumb’, way of looking at the economy. My suspicion, however, is that this is precisely why it is so popular with politicians. Merely generating economic activity, especially in the short term, is quite easy — and, therefore, a convenient way for politicians to say they have achieved something during their term in office.
To generate GDP growth, you could build over-priced sports stadiums all over the country. Indeed, the more over-priced the said structures, the more GDP growth you will achieve — since the preferred measure is ‘nominal’ GDP, which measures the monetary amount of an activity.
Economists, of course, are clever enough to know all about the shortcomings of worshipping GDP growth, but they seem to want to make friends with policy-makers and obtain research grants, so they go along with it.
For Japan, GDP growth is especially pointless in two ways. First, it is far more important to look at GDP per person. For Japan, maintaining a non-shrinking GDP, or 0% growth, is a triumph in the face of the speed that the working population is declining.
It is a hollow triumph, however, because once the aim becomes to protect your GDP number, you do all sorts of extreme things, like using the central bank to buy up your government bonds. But by making an artificial floor, you make it impossible to know the real price of Japanese debt.
The price of government debt is the price off which all other financial instruments are abased, so you are making a mockery of your capital markets in the process. And, remember, the reason we pay bankers and economists such high salaries is that they allow us to identify the ‘true’ prices of goods and services in the economy. Only they don’t. But we still pay their level of salaries.
The distortions are obvious in other ways. Today, Japanese GDP is much bigger than it was before Abe came to power in December 2012, in yen terms. But the value of the yen has collapsed 40% against the dollar in that time. So in dollar terms, it has sharply contracted.
Everyone wants a simple metric, and GDP growth is the metric incessantly recycled in almost every article about Abenomics. The prime minister was recently brazen enough to suggest a GDP of ¥600 trillion — a typically pointless numerical figure.
That is the reason why printing money has become so central to the debate about Abenomics. Printing money should make prices go up, and that lifts nominal GDP. Hey, presto, mission accomplished! This then leads you into truly wacky territory where rising prices — in a country where most people have been growing poorer over the last 20 years — is seen as a good thing. But, hey, nominal GDP is growing — at least in the short term.
If you choose one bad metrics, you start having to use lots of other absurd metrics to achieve the original metric. Unfortunately, none of this looks likely to change soon.

Hervé Falciani, a former IT worker, was convicted in his absence for the biggest leak in banking history. He is currently living in France, where he sought refuge from Swiss justice, and did not attend the trial.
While working on the database of HSBC’s Swiss private bank, Falciani downloaded the details of about 130,000 holders of secret Swiss accounts. The information was handed to French investigators in December 2008 and then circulated to other European governments.It was used to prosecute tax evaders including Arlette Ricci, the heir to France’s Nina Ricci perfume empire, and to pursue Emilio Botín, the late chairman of Spain’s Santander bank. Switzerland’s federal prosecutor had requested a record six-year term for Falciani for aggravated industrial espionage, data theft and violation of commercial and banking secrecy.It was the longest sentence ever demanded by the confederation’s public ministry in a case of banking data theft. The trial was also the first conducted by the country’s federal criminal court in which the accused had not been present.
The defendant’s lawyers had demanded a reduced sentence, of between two and three years, “compatible with the granting of a reprieve”.

10 Responses to “Government Explained”
France was victimized by a bloody terror attack on the evening of November 13th, 2015. ISIS, the self-proclaimed “Islamic caliphate,” has taken credit for the Paris terror attacks, which claimed the lives of at least 129 people and wounded another 415.
The world is grieving, with millions on social media declaring their solidarity with France. Millions more are asking why so many are outraged now, when thousands of people are killed daily in conflicts the world over.
In the aftermath of the attack, several realities have become clear. Taking history into account, three things will undoubtedly occur in response to the terror attacks in Paris.
Yet More War
The world is plagued by war, and following the Paris attacks, there is about to be a lot more of it. French President Francois Hollande quickly declared Friday’s terror attacks acts of war, making it clear through his actions over the weekend what the answer to those acts will be: bombs — and a lot of them.
France carried out over 100 airstrikes in Syria on Sunday, with many more sure to come in Hollande’s “pitiless war” against those responsible for the attacks. France has already been involved with the civil war in Syria, fighting alongside the U.S. At the same time, it has stuck to the West’s talking point that Assad must be deposed for there to be a political solution to the conflict.
On the other side of the Atlantic, the U.S. is gearing up to exploit the attacks in Paris by calling for more military intervention in Syria. First it was politicians, then the establishment media who called for a more direct response from the United States — up to and including a full-scale invasion of Syria.
President Obama has already stymied such calls for a full-scale military operation in Syria, ruling out a ground invasion. “It’s best that we don’t shoot first and aim later,” he said. The president continued:
“We play into the ISIL narrative when we act as if they are a state and we use routine military tactics that are designed to fight a state that is attacking another state. That’s not what’s going on here.”
While this rhetoric is rather rational, it’s hard to believe the president will stick to his words, especially considering he proclaimed the U.S. would not deploy boots on the ground in Syria at least 16 times — only to do just that months later.
As Anti-Media noted earlier today, Sunday’s entire Democratic presidential debate was intentionally shifted to focus on foreign policy and anti-terror measures — and the candidates responded with forcefully hawkish rhetoric (with the exception of Bernie Sanders).
The information that seems to be missing from the entire conversation is that it was forceful foreign policy, accelerated by George W. Bush and continued by President Obama, that is directly responsible for the rise of ISIS in the first place. The short-sighted rhetoric political figures and media pundits are now spouting is highly reminiscent of post-9/11 fervor — and could lead to more of the same foreign policy blunders made in the years following 2001.
Islamophobia, Xenophobia, and Anti-Immigrant Sentiment
When an Islamic terrorist group attacks, the masses are quick to indict the entire religion — and the right-wing media is always there to fuel the flames of distrust and fear. The fact of the matter is that only a tiny minority of people who identify as Muslim commit terrorist acts. The likelihood of white Europeans and Americans alike committing an act of terror is exponentially greater than that of Islamic extremists (cops in the U.S. kill exponentially more than both of these groups combined).
Distrust of Muslims has been growing in France for several years, and the Paris attacks have only served to amplify this xenophobia. Rallies for peace and solidarity in Paris over the weekend were interrupted by anti-Muslim protesters shouting, “throw out Islamists!”
The “Jungle” refugee camp in Calais, France, which largely houses Muslims fleeing the war-torn Middle East, caught fire on Friday night. While the cause of the fire is still unknown, anti-immigrant groups in France took to social media to applaud the fire’s destruction.
In the United States, many media outlets are fear mongering with anti-immigrant propaganda, and right-wing politicians are feeding right into it. At least half a dozen Republican governors have already announced plans to resist the settlement of Syrian refugees in their states in the wake of the Paris terror attacks. However, many people on social media are countering the fear mongering:
To people blaming refugees for attacks in Paris tonight. Do you not realise these are the people the refugees are trying to run away from..?

Loss of Liberties in France and at Home
The immediate response to the terror attacks in France was one of blatant militarism. As Anti-Media reported earlier today, the French government has deployed 10,000 troops to patrol the streets of France. President Francois Hollande announced his intention to extend the state of emergency for another three months, and a curfew has been enacted in Paris for the first time since WWII. These actions make a state of near-martial law a reality for Parisians. The French government also ordered 150 raids across the country against suspected terrorists, placing 104 people under house arrest.
In the long-term, the French can expect to see their liberties eroded as their government continues to replace freedom with security, much like the U.S. did following 9/11 (see: Patriot Act). Prior to Friday’s attacks, the French government had already banned some forms of free speech and established an extensive surveillance apparatus, but further amplifications of these intrusions are likely to follow. Militarized police, “stop and frisk”-style tactics, and loss of privacy are all on the menu as the French government capitalizes on this tragedy to increase its control over the public.
In the U.S., calls to increase already intrusive surveillance of the public have already begun. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, said, “I think we need to restore the metadata program, which was part of the Patriot Act.” Though the bulk collection of the metadata of U.S. citizens was ruled unconstitutional last week by District Court Judge Richard Leon, CIA director John Brennan echoed Bush-era sentiments: speaking to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Brennan claimed that in the wake of the Paris attacks, the U.S. should roll back recent reforms made to protect the privacy of Americans from the NSA’s surveillance dragnet.
While the world mourns the deaths of the innocent people who fell victim to the terror attacks in France, Western governments are busy making plans to wage further war and to reduce the freedoms of the very people victimized by the attacks in the first place. Meanwhile, misled patriots everywhere are clamoring to express their nationalistic fervor, bashing and attacking the very refugees their own governments created through foreign policy riddled with hubris.
“There’s No Such Thing As ISIS”: Journalist Destroys West’s Terror Narrative, Warns Of Crackdown On “Dissidents”
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 11/17/2015 13:55 -0500
On Saturday, the day after the massacre in France which turned the streets of Paris into a warzone and left some 130 civilians dead, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had a message for the West.
While condemning the attacks and branding the perpetrators “savages”, he was also quick to note that Syria has been dealing with this brand of terrorism for nearly five years straight. In what amounted to an “I told you so” moment, Assad also said the following: “We said, don’t take what is happening in Syria lightly. Unfortunately, European officials did not listen.”
Assad also took the opportunity to once again suggest that the West’s sponsorship of the regional powers who support (both explicitly and implicitly) Sunni extremism in Syria is the root cause of the problem although the language he used was a bit less harsh than that which he employed in September (presumably because he was trying not to inflame tensions less than 24 hours after the Paris massacre). Here’s what he said: “The question that is being asked throughout France today is, was France’s policy over the past five years the right one? The answer is no.”
Presumably, Assad was referencing the West’s support for the various militant groups seeking to oust his government. Those groups, including ISIS, have received money, guns, and training at various times from the CIA, from Turkey, from Saudi Arabia, and from Qatar. The situation on the ground is of course so fluid that it’s nearly impossible to keep track of where the guns, money, and fighters end up, meaning that even those observers who shun conspiracy theories would be hard pressed to contend that the US has not at least indirectly armed and trained ISIS.
Perhaps the most overlooked passage in all of the leaked documents that have surfaced thus far is the following from a declassified Pentagon report dated August 2012 and obtained by Judicial Watch:
…there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist Principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).”
That’s the smoking gun and nobody seems to care.
The passage above clearly states that the US knew this was coming and viewed it as “exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want” on the way to not only “isolating” Assad, but also to breaking Tehran’s Shiite crescent.
Although that’s such a critical excerpt, it has been habitually overlooked, and ironically, tragedies like that which occurred in Paris only serve to galvanize public opinion around an ideal rather than around the search for answers and that, is a dangerous, dangerous thing.
In that context and (importantly) in the context of French President Francois Hollande’s push to alter the French Constitution, we bring you the following interview with journalist Gearoid O’Colmain who pretty much blows apart the entire charade in the space of ten minutes.
“There is no such thing as ISIS. ISIS is a creation of the US, we know that from official sources of the US military themselves and declassified documents”…
The giant psychological warfare operation, where “ISIS terrorists” allegedly killed over a hundred people in Paris, on Friday the 13th, November, 2015, was just part of ongoing horse trading towards a world government.
To understand this, let us look at some key events surrounding the events in Paris.
First of all, the fact that thousands of witnesses all carrying video phones were unable to record the events of that day alone proves it was just a massive propaganda event, NSA and other sources agree. In addition, all 8 security camera feeds to the areas where the supposed massacres took place had been shut off, implying high level cooperation from the French security police, CIA sources say.
Next, let us look at what has resulted from this event. France has implemented martial law and closed its borders. This is classic Gladio strategy whereby a manufactured terror incident is used to implement a military government.
Furthermore, the French have been pushing, through their proxy Christine Lagarde, head of the IMF, to replace the US dollar with the IMF’s SDR. This is to be decided at a meeting on November 30th.
November 30th is also the day when 120 or so world leaders, including those of Russia, the US and China, are to gather in Paris to “discuss global warming.” As anybody who actually checks facts knows, “global warming” has nothing to do with scientific truth and everything to do with forming a world government. The idea is to finance this world government with a global “carbon tax.” The world itself is not warming and even if it was it would be due to solar cycles and not CO2.
However, the events in Paris and unreported but even more dramatic events in the Middle East are, nonetheless, part of some very serious infighting between various factions struggling to dominate the world government that is being negotiated.
There is also conflicting evidence about exactly who staged the events in Paris and other similar psy-ops that are appearing with increasing regularity.
The Russians, still furious about the shooting down of their airplane on Halloween (October 31st), say it was the same people behind that as were behind the events in Paris. Russian President Vladimir Putting is saying he will “not deal with the dog that has bitten him, it is the owner of the dog who will be held responsible.”
According to the Russians the owner of this particular “dog,” is the Vanguard Corporation and their subsidiary Raytheon. The owners of this corporate holding company are being systematically hunted down by the Russians.
As well as this, there is now a Chinese, Russian, Iranian and Pentagon operation underway in the Middle East that is destroying the power base of the Khazarian mafia and their Israeli slave regime. The massive defeats being faced by the Khazarians and their ISIS subsidiary in the Middle East are of historical significance.
The Russians say “‘Putin’* bombed several ISIS oil-producing companies and a motorcade with oil that was already bought by ISIS business partners, and ‘Maniac Putin’ bombed ISIL refineries.” In other words they have started attacking the owners of ISIS in their wallets where it really hurts. They say this is just a beginning.
Pentagon and CIA sources agree with the Russians that the Khazarian mafia and their proxy Israel are reeling under unprecedented attack. Inside Syria, government forces have recaptured Aleppo, the second largest city in that country. In addition, ISIS have lost the city of Ramadi and the town of Sinjar in Iraq.
Furthermore, the Russians are carrying out airstrikes against Khazarian proxy forces in Lebanon while the Americans are attacking them in Libya. This is having the effect of cutting off all their oil and drug income.
In addition to that Israel is under economic siege. Israeli arms manufacturers have lost 50% of their sales since 2012 due to an arms embargo.
Israel also remains under a Chinese, Russian and Pentagon military blockade that will not be lifted until they withdraw from all illegally occupied territories. Even Israeli lobbying to keep the Golan Heights was rejected.
Both the Pentagon and the Russians believe the Khazarian mob and their ISIS proxies staged the Paris attacks as revenge against these setbacks. Pentagon sources say the attacks were a failed effort to get NATO to fight on behalf of Israel in Syria. Instead, the G20 nations just meeting in Turkey agreed that Israel and their bribed politicians in the United States were the leading world cause of terrorism.
The Russians are, for their part, also saying that France was targeted because the French and the Germans were trying to stop the Kazarian mobs’ distribution of forged “super-k” dollars in the Ukraine.
The refugee crisis is also seen by the Russians as punishment against the Europeans. The Russians say they have forensically traced all the twitter accounts encouraging refugees to go to Europe to the city of San Francisco in the United States.
There may be a deeper agenda at work though. For one thing the refugee crisis has forced most countries in the EU to re-impose border controls. At the same time an emerging socialist government in Portugal is asking for a reduction in debt payments, likely reigniting the debt crisis that is still sputtering away in Greece. If they get a cut in debt payments then Spain, Italy and Greece will ask for the same and thus threaten the Euro.
Remember the European Parliament Building was designed many years ago to resemble to Tower of Babel. The Tower of Babel collapsed making one wonder if the Euro government was also designed, from the beginning to collapse.
Next remember the January cover of the Rothschild owned Economist magazine featuring two arrows with the numbers 115 and 113, a close match to 151113, the date of the Paris attacks. Right beside the arrows in the picture is Alice from Alice in Wonderland staring at a Da Vinci Portrait that is in the Louvre Museum in Paris.
The portrait in the Louvre is of a woman who, the story goes, was mistress to the King of France. Her husband, to get revenge on the king, infected himself with syphilis in order to pass it on to the king through his wife.
So, if we are to speculate further, the attacks in Paris were a long planned revenge against the bloodline French establishment by anti-bloodline Illuminati.
Occult speculation aside, since the Germans pay the most into the Euro and the French benefit the most, the end of the Euro would hurt France most of all. So, clearly the French establishment benefits from martial law in such circumstances.
Also, as mentioned at the top of this article, there is a big world gathering starting in Paris on November 30th to discuss “global warming” aka “global governing.” Again martial law and closed borders would help protect the 120 world leaders gathering there.
As most of the speeches by world leaders at the UN 70th anniversary bash in September made clear, there is a consensus that changes need to be made in how we run the planet. The countries that did not share in the American, British, Chinese, French and Russian World War 2 victory table want these countries to give up their monopoly on vetoes in the UN Security Council. Most countries also agree that more needs to be done to fight poverty and end environmental destruction.
There is clearly a consensus among current world leaders that some sort of new rules for running the planet, essentially some sort of world government, is needed.
So what are the identifiable factions in the negotiations towards a world government?
The French, Germans and their European allies are pushing to make the IMF the most powerful instrument of their New World Order by inviting the Chinese to join them at the SDR table and thus replace the US dollar with something they control.
The only problem with this is that the IMF has a horrific track record of raping, looting and impoverishing countries in order to benefit large corporations. Nobody wants an IMF world government except the people who now control the IMF.
The Pentagon and the US military industrial complex are pushing for a meritocratic world government of the sort seen in Star Trek. The Gnostic Illuminati also support this.
The Chinese also believe in meritocracy but with one important difference, they want to make sure any meritocratic world government doesn’t end up being controlled by Westerners.
That is why there is a proxy fight going on between the military industrial faction (stronghold of the illuminati) and the Chinese. This is being seen in the US military taking over the Federal Reserve Board dollar printing press inside the United States and the Chinese reaction of cutting off trade credit to the US.
The Americans are reacting by offering countries around China “protection” against the Chinese. They advertise their willingness to stand up to China by sending planes and ships into disputed territories controlled by China.
At the end of the day the Chinese and the US/Western military industrial faction are likely to find some sort of compromise involving greater non-Western control of world institutions. The reason is because the alternative, World War 3 and the destruction of 90% of the planet, is unthinkable. In other words, given a choice between win-win and lose-lose, it’s easy to guess who win-wins.
The losers in all this will be the Khazarian mafia who are being forced to give up their dream of enslaving humanity into their 1000 year reich. Illuminati sources say they expect another Khazarian incident on or around thanksgiving (November 26th).
*Actual Russian sources, by the way, put “Putin” in quotation marks because they say he is actually a representative of their collective decision making and not an individual exercising actual leadership.
