The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Besides Obamacare premiums, Medicare monthly costs set to rise by 34%

There are several truths in life… death, taxes, and the inability of Congress to pass legislation that is actually beneficial to the American people.  And with our welfare and benefit system growing from a safety net scheme 70 years ago, to now a massive boondoggle encompassing nearly two-thirds of the entire annual budget, eventually something had to crack, and it is coming this time in potentially new increased costs for Medicare premiums for those stuck in fixed incomes.
Nearly a third of the roughly 50 million elderly Americans who depend on Medicare for their physician care and other health services could see their premiums jump by 52 percent or more next year. That’s because of a quirk in the law that punishes wealthier beneficiaries and others any time the Social Security Administration fails to boost the annual cost of living adjustment.
Unless Congress or Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell intervenes, an estimated 15 million seniors, first-time beneficiaries or those currently claiming dual Medicare and Medicaid coverage will see their premiums jump from $104.90 per month to $159.30 for individuals, according to an analysis by the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College. Higher-income couples would pay multiples of that increase. – Yahoo Finance

Bankster economist who called for an end to cash now calls for global QE4

It is incredibly funny when you realize that most market projections are determined by banks and economists who have a monetary interest in the outcome of their own analysis.  From the forecasting of quarterly earnings for individual stocks, to telling the Federal Reserve how they should perform monetary policy, the casino known as Wall Street is simply a segregated environment where 1%ers vie with other 1%ers to manipulate outcomes based on their own for or against betting patterns.
Thus it should come as no surprise that the once again fail Chief Economist from Citigroup is ratcheting up his rhetoric, and where at a meeting for the Council on Foreign Relations he suggested it is time for central banks around the world to rev up the helicopter and start a new round of Quantitative Easing to stave off the coming economic crash.

Another mainstream publication calls for the banning of cash

We have talked about in the past a paper published by a Harvard professorwhich argued that a ban on cash would be beneficial to helping the central bank perform monetary policies that give them much more latitude in the economic and financial arenas.  Of course, this ‘educator’ failed to recognize that it is not the fault of money that was ever the issue, but rather that fallible bankers, who are more ideologues than economists, have no idea about what they are doing and that the real answer lies in getting rid of them, rather than restricting the freedoms of the people to own cash.
But sadly this growing trend in both the academic and financial circles appears to be increasing as last weekend the Financial Times suddenly got on the End Cash bandwagon, and is even referring to fiat physical money as a barbarous relic.

Global trade study validates the recessionary decline in Baltic Dry Index

One of the most important, but usually least talked about indicators that denotes the strength of the economy is the Baltic Dry Index (BDI).  This is a measurement that tracks shipping costs and quantities and is a strong signal for whether trade and exports are rising, or in decline.
And a new study out on Aug. 28 by the World Trade Monitor has now validated the recessionary numbers of the BDI, and shows trade within the global economy is now down to levels not seen since the Great Recession period of 2009.

Got Karatbars? World's leading analyst on gold and silver says next rally will be one you never sell

On Aug. 26, the man considered by many to be the world's leading gold and silver analyst going back to the 1970's was a guest on the USA Watchdog program.  During his 30 minute interview, Jim Sinclair stated that the Monday stock market crash was the beginning of a new global paradigm shift in finance that would soon bring about The Global Reset, and with it, gold will rally to such heights that it will no longer be a value in relation to currencies, but it will stand above it.
Greg Hunter: Ok, I want to get to gold and silver, because you said in our last interview a year ago that gold would be (one day) $50,000 per ounce.  And Bill Holter came and doubled down and said that would be ridiculously low.  Give us your synopsis of gold... is this the bottom, and is the bottom in, and do you have sources that tell you that, or does your analysis tell you that... or is it both? 
Jim Sinclair: Well, nobody can trade gold (today) based on any technical analysis.  There is no reliable system in the marketplace at the present time.  If you want to know what gold is going to do, you better have an open line to what we might call 'the insiders'.  Because the price is made according to the flavor of the day.
I don't claim that I called the top in the March of 1980 (although others do make this claim for him) because of any kind of a system.  Greg I was told.  And I acted on what I was told. 
Greg Hunter: And you believed them? 
Jim Sinclair: I believed them. 
Greg Hunter: That was a huge call... not many people were told that.  But give yourself some credit, because six years earlier you said it would go to $900, and it did go up. 
Jim Sinclair: I've had some ability to forecast some prices.  And I can tell you what I've been told, why don't we go with that? 
Number 1: The downside on gold is extraordinarily limited.  Two: The rally that will come in gold is going to be stupendous.  And the one thing I find very interesting is... Three: We may never call you back!  Because this may be the rally you don't sell. - USA Watchdog

Here is the entire video with Greg Hunter and Jim Sinclair



Jim Sinclair also went on to say that Black Monday was the beginning of the end for the stock market highs since it provided two key dictates not seen since 2011.  First, the PPT attempted to stem the flow of sell orders but failed every time, and was forced to simply let it collapse into the close.  This proved to everyone that both the Fed and the government are not infallible, and that with enough pressure no intervention can stop a market crash.  And secondly, when you look at the historic move on the VIX, confidence was shaken to unseen levels and this will lead any new market declines to exacerbate confidence and by the end of September, or no later than this winter, the collapse will be in full and complete motion.

As we are seeing over in China as well, no currency or economy is safe to try to store your wealth from what is coming worldwide.  The only solution is in gold, silver, cash and having these outside the banking system, and for the common person who cannot afford gold priced in ounces right now, or especially in the future, there is only one place to go.

The answer lies in Karatbars.




Buying gold through Karatbars is one of the easiest things on the net.  In fact, the business model of Karatbars is to sell gold in affordable quantities, such as 1, 2.5, and 5 gram increments, and allow customers to get into the metal without having to shell out $1200+ for a single ounce coin.

And as added perks to signing up with Karatbars, as a customer or affiliate, you can have the power to move your money into a free e-wallet that functions just like an offshore bank account, and is outside the authority of the banking system.  From there, you can take your fiat currency in any denomination... dollars, euros, yen, etc... and purchase physical gold which can either be delivered directly to you, or stored for free at one of Karatbar's vaults.

Additionally, any gold that you buy can easily be sold back to Karatbars, or any metals dealer, and if with Karatbars it is then exchanged for currency that is uploaded to you through a pre-loaded debit Mastercard which is connected directly to your e-wallet.  And as we know, MasterCard is recognized in nearly every country around the world, and usable in any currency that accepts it.

But perhaps the best feature with Karatbars is their affiliate program, where you can earn money off commissions from getting others to sign up and become a customer or affiliate.  Not only do you receive commissions from their purchasing of physical gold, but you also earn commissions from anyone who buys a commission package, with that money going directly into your debit MasterCard when you have enough units to cycle.

Imagine the ability to earn the money in which to buy your gold savings simply by purchasing a commission affiliate package one time, and then getting others to sign up and do the same thing.

How many businesses or entrepreneurs can build an infinite business with spending less than $400 of their own money?  And there is never a mandatory requirement to buy beyond what you desire, on your own schedule.  And there is nothing to lose, because you're using money (paper dollars) to buy gold (physical money) and in the end you don't lose a thing.



The global financial system, along with dozens of respected economists, are telling us that now is the time for the end of our current form of money, and the beginning of the transition into a new monetary system that is expected to be backed by gold.  And with banks, governments, and even Harvard professors mandating that central banks have no choice but to eliminate cash from usage by the people to stave off collapse, will you wait until it is too late to make a decision on how you will protect your wealth, and be able to function within the coming new monetary system?

Is the ‘flight to safety’ in treasuries really the result of Fed mopping up China’s dollar dump?

Over the past two weeks we have seen the U.S. 10 year treasury roller coaster from a level of 2.2% on Aug. 17, to a low of 1.95 a week later.  Yet since that time the 10 year has moved back above the ‘Mendoza line’ to its current position of 2.12%.  And of course, the common response in the mainstream media to this drop in yield and spike in buying was due to a ‘flight to safety’ as traders exited the equity markets and moved into bonds.



But when you look at the entirety of the markets, and especially in relation to how U.S. bonds are affected by global economies that hold treasuries as dollar reserves, something interesting begins to emerge, and perhaps this time the old standby of a ‘flight to safety’ is really the Fed buying massive amounts of bonds to mop up what China is dumping as they work to put a tourniquet on their own economy.

Are Russia and the OPEC nations creating plans for the end of the Petro-dollar this week?

This week marks the annual MAKS air show that is held each year in Moscow and surrounding regions, and there is a very interesting lineup of attendees that are coming to this year’s event.  Among them are several leaders from the Middle East and from OPEC nations, and it will bring together several parties that have the power to direct energy and military policies going forward for their countries.
But what is of strategic importance, and what could possibly end up being a monumental sea change in the global energy spectrum, is that this week’s event could bring about the plans for an end of the petro-dollar, and a rise of oil and natural gas being sold primarily in Yuan, or even perhaps gold.

Is the Fed using a loophole to prop up the stock markets through the Swiss central bank?

When the Federal Reserve was instituted back in 1913, it came into being with just two primary mandates.  The first was to curb inflation through the adjustment of interest rates,  and the second was to be a lender of last resort for troubled banks in need of liquidity.  Over time however, Congress pushed a third mandate onto their balance sheet, which was to ensure full employment in the economy.
But after the stock market crash of 1987, the Fed became involved in a new area of the market that was never part of their mandate… propping up and protecting equity values in the stock markets.  And while most of that work was relegated to the government run Plunge Protection Team (PPT) from the 80’s onward, it wasn’t until the Credit Crisis of 2008 and the implementation of Quantitative Easing that the central bank’s thrust into the stock markets became a near daily excursion.
So this now begs the question… just how does the Fed manipulate stock prices if they have no legal authority to do so, and no mandate at all to get involved in equities?  The answer appears to lie in a loophole that is facilitating their use of other central banks to do their work for them by supplying necessary funds to foreign banks to purchase stocks on U.S. exchanges.

British Official Warning Public: STOCK UP ON FOOD, WATER, CANNED GOODS & CASH

When the prepping mantra finally hits the mainstream, you know that it is either too late, or right about the time the stuff is going to hit the fan.  And with global stock markets signalling that the world is already in recession, and on its way towards the next economic collapse, a former adviser Britain’s once Prime Minister Gordon Brown is calling in the cavalry, and saying now is the time to prep for a coming disaster.

For those who have been ‘watching on the walls’ for many years, this warning is not a surprise, but is welcomed by those who wait for their leaders to tell them what to do rather than be proactive for their own family’s safety and security.  Yet even now, prices for food, water, guns, and gold have soared over the past five years, and are very close to impossible to get at an affordable price.

Black Monday: No matter the spin, markets built on Fed policy instead of economy

In the past we have written about, and shown the charts of what has happened in the stock markets since 2008 after the Fed began their policies of near zero interest rates, and massive quantitative easing.  In fact, it was a case of simple analysis to realize that the rise and fall of the equity markets over the past seven years have been intrinsically tied to infusions of new money printing, where stocks always declined when the spigots were turned off by the central bank.



Which leads us to now to the day of reckoning, or what happens in every instance of monetary expansion.  Over the past three weeks, equity markets around the world have been accelerating downward based on a number of factors.  First, the ability of new debt to increase GDP has now gone beyond the point of diminishing returns and would require an ever expanding rate of money printing just to squeeze out a single dollar of nominal growth.  Thus beginning in China, then traversing over into Europe and the U.S. during a daily market cycle, market declines and bad economic data are showing the cracks in the global financial system which are in part the same fundamental flaws that led to the 2008 crash.

Got Karatbars? Retirees will never have enough money to stop working through conventional savings

In a new report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), over half of all Americans have no retirement savings at all, and many more are too underfunded to be able to quit working once their golden years start to come upon them.  And with Social Security become more insolvent every day, with a few projections putting 2017 as the year the fund no longer can sustain payments from receipts, it will soon be extremely difficult for you to have any expectation of retirement through the conventional means of Wall Street or in personal and corporate pension funds.


On top of this, the stock market appears to be on the precipice of a huge correction, and has already fallen close to 10% in just the past two months.  Yet this alone doesn't tell the entire story as sovereign and corporate bonds have collapsed as well, and the entire global economy is in the midst of a deflationary spiral.

The one segment of the market that has risen however is gold, and may be finally turning the corner as the dollar begins to fall.  China started the metals move upward when they devalued their currency close to 10 days ago, and since that time both the dollar and the stock markets have reacted with a negative response.


Planning for retirement takes time.  Saving money is a slow process.  There was a time when simply stashing money into CDs and savings bonds was enough to have a nice nest egg if you were diligent enough.  Yet for the last decade, most banks are paying close to zero percent on their savings accounts thanks to the Fed’s low rate policy to juice the markets.  Since the true inflation rate is much higher, you are essentially letting your money rot away.  So the only other option is for people to invest in the stock market or try to leverage into real estate.

The stock market is largely an arena for the wealthy.  Half of Americans own no stocks at all.
And the idea that all older Americans own their home free and clear is simply not true.  Only 35 percent own their home free and clear from debt (and this does not mean they don’t have expenses like taxes, insurance, and maintenance).  24 percent are still saddled with mortgage debt.  And 41 percent do not own a home meaning they have to pay rents that continue tooutpace any wage gains
The median net worth of those 55 and older is $34,760.  This is basically one small illness from bankrupting this family.  The median annual income of those 55 and older is $18,932 which makes them part of the new low wage America cohort. On the retirement side 48 percent have some retirement savings (not much).  29 percent have no pension or retirement savings.  And 23 percent have a pension but no retirement savings.  In the end, it is a tough situation for many older Americans.  And that is why older Americans rely heavily on Social Security as their primary source of income into old age: - My Budget 360


So if the stock markets, the bond markets, and real estate will no longer provide for your retirement years as they once did before inflation and unsustainable debt became part of our nation's monetary policy, what is the solution to not only saving for your golden years, but building your wealth right now where it protected from the dying financial system?

The answer lies in Karatbars.




Buying gold through Karatbars is one of the easiest things on the net.  In fact, the business model of Karatbars is to sell gold in affordable quantities, such as 1, 2.5, and 5 gram increments, and allow customers to get into the metal without having to shell out $1200+ for a single ounce coin.

Bankrupted Nobel prize winning economist says economy needs more debt

When the Nobel committee handed out their prize for Economics to Paul Krugman back in 2008, the selectors must have thought they were giving it to Jack Klugman as a life-time achievement award, because the sad fact is the man who couldn’t even handle his own personal finances is little more than the butt of jokes when it comes to speaking out on financial and economic matters today.
And as the equity and bond markets start to crack in the U.S. during this month of August, the winner of the once meaningful Nobel Prize in Economics came out on Aug. 21 and said that the solution to this new and growing financial debt crisis is…
More debt.

Jeb Bush revealed to be just another shill for the bankers

One of the stigmas that will forever remain on former President George W. Bush’s legacy was his ceding to the banks, and his standing with Hank Paulson to use taxpayer funds to bailout the financial industry after the 2008 credit crisis.  And as we begin to look more into the plethora of Republic candidates vying for the White House in 2016, we find something very interesting regarding the next Bush family member running for office.
When Jeb Bush was governor of Florida during the same time as his brother was ruling over the country from Washington D.C., it has now been revealed that his fingers were also involved in a scheme that provided monies from his constituents to a bank that would eventually be at the heart of the 2008 financial collapse, and which led to the state of Florida losing over $1 billion when Lehman Bros. went kaput.
And for this largesse, Jeb Bush got a lucrative $1.3 million consulting gig as part of the quid pro quo.

Get ready for next move against dollar as IMF delays Yuan inclusion to SDR for a year

On Aug. 19, the IMF announced that they were delaying the decision to include the Chinese Yuan (RMB) into the SDR basket of currencies for at least one year, or until Sep. 30, 2016.  The decision to exclude the Yuan in next year’s basket content was determined a week ago, but the announcement to go forward with allowing China to stabilize and strengthen its currency was only released today.
IMF executive board extends current composition of its Special Drawing Rights for nine months until Sept. 30, 2016.
IMF staff had recommended extending the current basket, which was due to expire Dec. 31, to minimize disruption if yuan added.
Board decision gives SDR users “sufficient lead time to adjust in the event that a decision were to be taken to add a new currency to the SDR basket”

Greece to have 1000 Bitcoin ATM’s installed as corrupt banking forces alternatives

With the final vote made last night to accept the parameters of the Greek bailout deal, the people of Greece are expected to have to endure another decade of high unemployment, capital controls, low GDP, and of course austerity.  But as with most societies that finally recognize that their governments and financial systems no longer work for their benefit, the rise of black markets and alternative means of commerce rise as an example of necessity being the mother of invention.
And besides the ongoing TEM currency that has been functioning in the Greek economy for close to a decade now, those in the Bitcoin community have partnered up with a service provider of the crypto currency, and are expected to install 1000 Bitcoin ATM’s all across the beleaguered European nation.

Got Karatbars? More people seekling alternatives for when the system fails

It is said that when the mainstream begins printing truthful news stories, then you know that the time for the stuff to hit the fan is very very close.  And besides the many alternative economists like Peter Schiff, Gerald Celente, and Dr. Jim Willie who have spoken on the need to get into cash, coins, and offshore your wealth, that same message is now being transmitted by those who's livelihood is tied to the currency system, and to Wall Street.

FDIC advocated bail-in procedures going back to 2012
This paper focuses on the application of “top-down” resolution strategies that involve a single resolution authority applying its powers to the top of a financial group, that is, at the parent company level. The paper discusses how such a top-down strategy could be implemented for a U.S. or a U.K. financial group in a cross-border context… 
These strategies have been designed to enable large and complex cross- border firms to be resolved without threatening financial stability and without putting public funds at risk…An efficient path for returning the sound operations of the G-SIFI to the private sector would be provided by exchanging or converting a sufficient amount of the unsecured debt from the original creditors of the failed company into equity.  
In the U.S., the new equity would become capital in one or more newly formed operating entities. …Insured depositors themselves would remain unaffected. Uninsured deposits would be treated in line with other similarly ranked liabilities in the resolution process, with the expectation that they might be written down. http://www.fdic.gov/about/srac/2012/gsifi.pdf
Uninsured deposits are those in a bank that are more than $250,000 for a single account.  However, one has to take into consideration that under the Dodd-Frank bill, and under recent FDIC regulations, derivatives are given a much higher priority for payment than your checking or savings account, and as of right now there is only $25 billion in the FDIC to cover over $9 trillion in bank accounts, and $303 trillion in derivatives.

What will 50% of the American population do when the government checks stop coming?

When you take into consideration all the welfare programs, unemployment insurance, disability payments, and social security, over 50% of the entire population of the U.S. is on some form of government aid.  And as our national debt is well over $18 trillion and the annual deficit well over $1 trillion, how long will it be before the government has to cut off many of these promised payments because they can't afford to fund them through taxes and other revenues?  In fact, this doesn't even count the $2 trillion that the states are behind in funding their own pension programs.


Where do I store my wealth?
International diversification of wealth (no matter how large or small) can save your economic freedom. Although most of our readers thoroughly understand this concept, one of the most oft-heard concerns is that, by offshoring assets, one may not be able to get to them as easily as they now can.  
Here’s the response to that, and some practical advice on what you can do to protect yourself. Let’s say you presently regard yourself as being economically diversified. You own stocks and bonds, you have some cash, you have a retirement fund and you have a bit of gold stuffed away at home.  
On the surface, it would seem that you’re covered. Trouble is, you have all your wealth in one jurisdiction, and should that jurisdiction find itself in an economic crisis, all that “diversification” will be seriously at risk.
Diversification is always the most prudent plan anytime you are dealing with money.  Consider it like a short-term, medium-term, and long-term preparation where cash outside the bank is for the immediate problem, gold and silver coins represent functioning from one to six months, and having wealth offshore is the foundation to rebuild your future.

Yet if all paper investments such as stocks, bonds, annuities, reits, 401K's and even mutual funds are denominated in dollars, the fear is not that one or more of these financial sectors will crash like in 2008, but in the element underlying all of them, vis a vis the DOLLAR, which if it goes then it will make all of these assets instantly worthless, or at the very least, seriously devalued.

But what is the hedge against a dollar collapse or devaluation, and in fact, a hedge to protect against any currency that might break the global monetary system?  The answer of course is gold.

For the first time since 2009, BofAML's fund managers' survey finds Gold is "undervalued"


So if there was ever a time to purchase the one asset that will protect you from almost any economic and monetary collapse, now is the time.  And the best way to purchase it, store it offshore, and have access to it in any currency on the planet is with...

Karatbars.




Buying gold through Karatbars is one of the easiest things on the net.  In fact, the business model of Karatbars is to sell gold in affordable quantities, such as 1, 2.5, and 5 gram increments, and allow customers to get into the metal without having to shell out $1200+ for a single ounce coin.

Yes Virginia, contrary to ECB rhetoric there will be a Greek depositor bail-in

After Greece changed course back in July and accepted the Troika’s demands for austerity measures to receive a new bail-out, the assumption was that only bond holders would be subject to any sort of risk that might see their securities decline, or perhaps even fall to zero.  Yet as one knows in the financial industry, and in the case of central bank policies, you can never fall asleep believing that your money is ever safe.
According to EU legislation that is in line with January’s G20 resolution, and is similar to Section II of America’s Dodd-Frank laws, starting on Jan. 1 any and all bank deposits within Greece (and the rest of the Eurozone) can and will be subject to confiscation and bail-ins to re-capitalize their banking systems.  And with these banks having already seen over $100 billion removed by depositors prior to the Greek bank holiday, it is fair to assume that these banks are already close to insolvent, and won’t be waiting long to allocate the people’s deposits towards funding their own deficiencies.

Slowly but surely, Goldman Sachs is taking over the Western banking system

It is fascinating to think that just seven years ago, Goldman Sachs was on the cusp of bankruptcy.  However, thanks to a former CEO of Goldman (Hank Paulson) being in place as the Secretary of the Treasury at the time of the financial meltdown, the bank to the elite was saved when taxpayers bailed out AIG, and allowed Goldman to collect 100% on their worthless securities.
And since this recovery by Goldman on Wall Street, the bank has only gotten stronger, with several more former bankers having moved into key positions in the government and the nation’s central bank.  And with the Fed’s newest President being elected on Aug. 17, there are now three former Goldman bankers running America’s central bank.

Eight years later, the Housing bubble morphs into Rent bubble

Prior to the bursting of the artificially created Housing bubble in 2007, home prices had skyrocketed due to cheap money, low interest rates, and government policies that mandated banks lend to people who couldn’t afford it.  And with many families remaining cautious or unable to purchase a home after millions of Americans had lost theirs during the run of foreclosures following 2008, renting in the U.S. has never been higher since the 1960’s.
But with so much property once again being overpriced thanks to the Fed’s saturation of money coupled with historically low interest rates, the rise of a new bubble has taken shape, only this time it is not in regards to home ownership, but instead it is in the cost of rents.
Welcome to the new rent bubble, and the re-emergence of the Rentier Class.

Got Karatbars? Alternative currencies in gold and outside a bank about to explode around the world

Dateline Greece:  After months of Greek depositors removing nearly $100 billion out of their banking system prior to a bank holiday, and the accepted bailout agreement by the government for more austerity at the hands of the Troika, a growing number of citizens are conducting day to day business using an alternative currency and barter system known as the TEM.
Christos Papaioannounoticed his car needed new tires, the Greek computer engineer bought them with euros—but used an alternative currency, called TEM, to pay his mechanic for the labor. 
“Money is sparse right now, but people still have the same skills and knowledge they had before the crisis,” said Mr. Papaioannou, part of a cooperative that founded TEM in the port city of Volos and one of nearly 1,000 registered users of the alternate currency there.TEM—a sophisticated form of barter whose name is the Greek acronym for Local Alternative Unit—was founded in 2010 in the early months of Greece’s debt crisis with less than a dozen members. 
Now it includes dozens of participating local businesses that use the system to sell goods and services, including prepared food, haircuts, doctor visits, or even for renting an apartment. - Liberty Blitzkreig
Dateline Argentina: Institution of black market currency (Dolar Blue) growing in stature due to failure of national currency and economic policies.
Argentina was ruled in default of its debt in July after it defied a U.S. court order and refused to pay a group of hedge fund creditors.  That, however, is only a small part of Argentina's problems. The "economic reasons" for the underground peso's historic jump that Kicillof dismissed are very, very real. And the dolar blue market rate is no tiny market in the country.

These two nations are not exactly economic powerhouses that proliferate the G20, however they are a microcosm of the growing sentiment people are having against fiat money, and trust in the banking system.

There is a reason why digital and crypto currencies like Bitcoin were invented, and why alternatives to the dollar, euro, and other central bank run currencies are growing when governments show time and time again that they are unable to deal with economic issues besides the printing of more currency, which has been proven to only exacerbate the problem.



Yet the black market and locally introduced barter currencies are not the answer to resolving monetary destruction for the long run, and are simply the means by which the people can survive in their given locations day to day.  And since even Bitcoin is relatively new in the consumer landscape, and not readily accepted by most businesses and individuals, that leaves us with limited options on where to look for a monetary construct that is both outside the banking system, and available for both local and international trade in a form of money that is both sound, and recognized everywhere.

And the option that is most relevant is also the option that is most historic... and that is a gold backed monetary system.  And while governments of major economies fight tooth and nail to avoid going back to this form of money, and instead try to salve a failed currency system based on debt, companies outside the banking system are taking their own initiatives to create a monetary system that is not only fungible to paper currencies, but backed by a hard asset recognized as money for 5000 years.

Gold.

And what is one of those companies that has not only built a platform for consumer trade in every available currency, but is also outside the banking system and backed by the most stable monetary asset known to man?

That company is Karatbars.



Buying gold through Karatbars is one of the easiest things on the net.  In fact, the business model of Karatbars is to sell gold in affordable quantities, such as 1, 2.5, and 5 gram increments, and allow customers to get into the metal without having to shell out $1200+ for a single ounce coin.

And as added perks to signing up with Karatbars, as a customer or affiliate, you can have the power to move your money into a free e-wallet that functions just like an offshore bank account, and is outside the authority of the banking system.  From there, you can take your fiat currency in any denomination... dollars, euros, yen, etc... and purchase physical gold which can either be delivered directly to you, or stored for free at one of Karatbar's vaults.

Additionally, any gold that you buy can easily be sold back to Karatbars, or any metals dealer, and if with Karatbars it is then exchanged for currency that is uploaded to you through a pre-loaded debit Mastercard which is connected directly to your e-wallet.  And as we know, MasterCard is recognized in nearly every country around the world, and usable in any currency that accepts it.

But perhaps the best feature with Karatbars is their affiliate program, where you can earn money off commissions from getting others to sign up and become a customer or affiliate.  Not only do you receive commissions from their purchasing of physical gold, but you also earn commissions from anyone who buys a commission package, with that money going directly into your debit MasterCard when you have enough units to cycle.

Imagine the ability to earn the money in which to buy your gold savings simply by purchasing a commission affiliate package one time, and then getting others to sign up and do the same thing.

How many businesses or entrepreneurs can build an infinite business with spending less than $400 of their own money?  And there is never a mandatory requirement to buy beyond what you desire, on your own schedule.  And there is nothing to lose, because you're using money (paper dollars) to buy gold (physical money) and in the end you don't lose a thing.



The global financial system, along with dozens of respected economists, are telling us that now is the time for the end of our current form of money, and the beginning of the transition into a new monetary system that is expected to be backed by gold.  And with banks, governments, and even Harvard professors mandating that central banks have no choice but to eliminate cash from usage by the people to stave off collapse, will you wait until it is too late to make a decision on how you will protect your wealth, and be able to function within the coming new monetary system?

Depostors bank account’s are now eligible to pay Goldman Sach’s bonuses when the bail-in comes

Back in 2008, the public went wild over the government’s use of taxpayer money to bail out insolvent banks who had speculated and lost during the Housing Bubble bull market.  But even this was not as critical as the rage the American people felt when these same banks gave their executives massive bonuses based on capital received from that bail out.
And now seven years later, one of the major culprits who should have gone the way of the dodo bird is setting up to one day fleece the American people once again, only this time it will be under the auspices of the now infamous Dodd-Frank legislation that allows for depositor bail-ins during a monetary or banking crisis.
That culprit is none other than Goldman Sachs, who on Aug. 13 just added commercial banking to their repertoire by acquiring GE Capital Bank (“GECB”), and their $8 billion of online deposits.

Dow hits first true Death Cross since 2011

There are two technical terms for when the 50 day moving average (50DMA) and 200 DMA cross paths.  When the 50 day indicator is rising, and crosses over the 200 DMA it is known as a Golden Cross, and is considered a very bullish indicator.  But when the 50 DMA has a downward path, and crosses below the 200 DMA it is known as a Death Cross and represents a bearish indicator for any given market, industry, stock, or asset.
With the Dow falling more than 200 points on the NYSE on Aug. 11, the indicie has now experienced a Death Cross, and one that has not been fully seen since 2011 when the stock market recovery began thanks to the Federal Reserve’s Quantitative Easing.

China’s devaluation just the start as countries rev up for next leg of currency war

The currency war in the global financial system has been going on at varying strengths since 2009, and in full gear since 2013 thanks to Japan and Abenomics.  However, with the world’s most important industrial economy showing signs of a severe crash, or at the very least an acute slowdown, China’s new devaluation policy is expected to ratchet up the currency wars to a whole new level.
For years the Chinese Yuan has been pegged to the dollar, and has ebbed and flowed as the dollar both collapsed between 2008-2009, and strengthened to its current level of 96 over the past year.

But with deflation and a slowdown in consumer spending signaling that the world is now in a new recession, China had to act to protect their lifeblood of production against a myriad of economies that have already devalued their currencies multiple times in the past three years.

While the Fed tells Americans one thing, two major banks purchase tons of physical gold

There is a reason why CNBC has lost over 40% of their viewers after the 2008 Credit Crisis, and it is primarily because people have come to realize that most business networks are simply shills for the elite, and promoters of the Federal Reserve’s party line.  And to validate this, all one has to do is look at a recent article from the Wall Street Journal where a pundit sought to equate gold to that of a pet rock, and continue a long-standing trend of disparaging the one true form of money that has outlasted any manufactured script over the past 5000 years.
Yet one of the reasons why these mainstream news entities play this game of cover-ups, obfuscations, and lies is that while they work hard to dissuade people from putting their money into actual assets of worth, behind the scenes the banks and hedge funds are buying the things they tell you not to because they know in their own hearts the real truth of the state of the financial system.
And while the Wall Street Journal is calling gold a fad, and little more than today’s ‘Pet Rock’, two major banks have purchased tons of physical gold on the cheap.

Got Karatbars? Economist Marc Faber shows why you need to have gold stored offshore

As we prepare for the months of September and October, which in the normal market cycle are periods of extreme economic and financial swings, the message from most of the alternative economists remains the same.

Have money (cash) outside the banking system, have a modicum of physical gold and/or silver in hand, and following the passage of Dodd-Frank, the G20 January resolution, and the bank holiday just experienced in Greece, have most of your wealth stored offshore, and in assets not tied to any particular currency or country.

But for those who are either trying to get started on their accumulation of physical metals, or are using the lowered spot price to add to their stacks, the supply situation is getting extremely dire.  In fact from a personal anecdote, when I recently took someone to my local coin shop to buy some silver we ended up taking their entire supply of generic rounds, which was only about 100 to begin with.

And even beyond a local standpoint, shortages are growing nationwide, and across the globe.  In fact, just over the weekend the Royal Canadian Mint out of Canada defaulted on a delivery of silver bars, which is a huge story and a massive signal that demand is at or near all-time highs, and the manipulation of prices for silver and gold has been too much, and has opened the door for investors and savers worldwide to grab any and all metals they can.

Yet with all localized or sovereign bullion metals there is also a cost, and a fear that these coins could be confiscated, nationalized, or even taxed to the point they no longer provide the necessary protections that gold and silver are against currency devaluations.  And while it would be much harder for governments to try to pull off what several of them did in the 1930's when nations in Europe and the U.S. called for a turn in of privately held gold bullion, hedging one's bets is not only prudent in troubling times, but a necessity.

And that hedge at this point in time is to have much of your wealth out of the banking system, and away from any potential confiscation or nationalization by a government that created a monetary crisis through their own speculation, debt creation, and out of control spending.  But above all, available if necessary to be accessed and used as well.

In fact, this thesis is one that is shared right now by well known economist Marc Faber, who speculated on Aug. 7 in an interview that while governments and the mainstream media have been downplaying gold and silver for several years because it reflects the true value of their worthless paper currencies, these same governments when the next crisis comes will attempt to vilify owners of gold and silver as being the 'greedy people' who created the crisis because of their hoarding of the metals, and by them leaving the playing field of paper currencies.



What about gold? Being in a correction mode for a couple of years already, it recently has broken down some more.

I really don’t know, all I know is that I own gold and it doesn’t worry me that it went down because as I mentioned to you I have this diversification, the bonds in US dollars and the cash in US dollars has been a good investment essentially over the last twelve months. Then I own equities and I own properties in Asia that have been reasonably good investments so the fact that gold is going down doesn’t worry me and I buy every month a little bit but I think on this weakness I will increase the position substantially because I had maybe say 25% in gold but because equities and properties went up, the dollar went up and gold went down, the allocation to gold is no longer 25% but maybe only 10 or 15%.

So then I have to stock it up again. But I would say an individual should definitely own some physical gold.

The bigger question is where should he store it? because I think if we think it through, the failure of monetary policies will not be admitted by the professors that are at central banks, they will then go and blame someone else for it and then an easy target would be to blame it on people that own physical gold because they can argue, well these are the ones that do take money out of circulation and then the velocity of money goes down, we have to take it away from them.

That has happened in 1933 in the US. With our brilliant governments in Europe that follow US policies and with the ECB talking every day to the Federal Reserve, they would do the same in Europe, take the gold away from people. - Marcopolis

So, taking into consideration the three protective layers (cash in hand, metals in hand, and wealth offshore stored in metals outside the banking and sovereign system), what is the best solution to accomplish two of these three things?

The answer to this lies in a company called Karatbars.





Buying gold through Karatbars is one of the easiest things on the net.  In fact, the business model of Karatbars is to sell gold in affordable quantities, such as 1, 2.5, and 5 gram increments, and allow customers to get into the metal without having to shell out $1200+ for a single ounce coin.
