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?

Got Karatbars? The days of cheap gold may soon be coming to and end with Swiss metals rigging investigation

For those who have either fretted over the decline in gold prices, or have discounted gold altogether as an investment and savings tool because the price has remained stagnant or in decline since 2011. the days of cheap gold and silver may soon be coming to and end.

On Sept. 28, a Swiss regulatory watchdog opened up a new investigation on price manipulation for both gold and silver by the major banks, and a collusion that is perhaps heavier than the trillion dollar Libor manipulation that was blown open last year.
The Swiss competition watchdog has launched an investigation into possible collusion in the precious metals market by several major banks, it said on Monday, the latest in a string of probes into gold, silver, platinum and palladium pricing.  
Global precious metals trading has been under regulatory scrutiny since December 2013, when German banking regulator Bafin demanded documents from Deutsche Bank under an inquiry into suspected manipulation of gold and silver benchmarks by banks.  
Even though the market has moved to reform the process of deciding on its price benchmarks, accusations of manipulation have refused to go away.  
Gold prices have also shed some 9 percent in the last two years as investors lose faith in its status as a store of value. Switzerland's WEKO said its investigation, the result of a preliminary probe, was looking at whether UBS, Julius Baer, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Barclays, Morgan Stanley and Mitsui conspired to set bid/ask spreads. - Reuters



The Gold and silver markets have been some of the most manipulated in the global financial system because of their counter-weight against the devaluation of global currencies that has been going on since 2009.  But with indicators pointing towards a new financial crash in the entire global economy sometime in the new future, major banks, hedge funds, and even elites like Carl Icahn and George Soros have been been buying metals by the ton in expectation of a new price explosion.

Which then begs the question for those who don't have vast amounts of capital... how can you protect yourself from what is assuredly coming to the dollar, economy, stock and bond markets, and central bank policies to fight our deflationary recession?

The answer 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.

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?

China adds new Eurasian country into its fold of bi-lateral currency and trade nations

On Sept. 27 China announced a new agreement with the nation of Georgia to conduct currency swaps and direct bi-lateral trade using each others currencies.  This move adds another nation into the fold of trade partners that will function outside the dollar, and widens the growing cracks that are hemorrhaging within the polar dollar reserve currency system.
Since 2013, China, along with the rest of the BRICS nations, have embarked on a global effort to bring a return to bi-lateral trade and end the singular reserve currency system that has been part of America’s hegemony for more than 70 years.  And with recent agreements signed last week with Britain and Argentina, this new one with Georgia will also help bandage sour relations they have with Russia since it will engender trade among the BRICS countries that doesn’t necessarily affect geo-political grievances.

Okun’s Razor: How can the Fed ever raise rates with real unemployment over 12%

There is one sure thing about central banks and government agencies… neither one will ever do the right thing.  And when the propaganda we have been getting for more than a decade from both the Fed and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) suddenly was shattered 10 days ago when Janet Yellen chose not to raise interest rates, the reality of believing in false models and manipulated data revealed itself like a Black Swan.
Which brings us to an economic model known as Okun’s Law, which says that for every one point increase in the cyclical unemployment rate, two percentage points of negative growth in real GDP are experienced.

Germany kicking people out of their own residences to give to refugees

After the truth about the mass European refugee event has become public now for a few weeks, one has to wonder why leaders within the EU would be willing to tear the union apart by forcing countries to take in Islamic and foreign aliens, especially when many are not even Syrian, or homeless because of the Syrian Civil War.
But even with this being said, and with an ongoing clash raging between stable EU nations and fringe ones like Hungary, Germany appears to be fully into the false narrative as now there are reports of government officials kicking out long-standing citizens from their rented apartments to provide space for the massive influx of alien refugees.

Got Karatbars? Financial independence is done through self-employment

One of the more intellectual philosophers (economists) in the West today wrote an interesting piece recently describing how financial independence no longer comes from the old model of go to school, get a job, save for retirement, and trust in social security, but rather from the melding of self-employment with doing something you really love to do.  And while this concept has been well documented by entrepreneurs like Robert Kyosaki, it is because of the internet that has opened the door to be able to make money in any genre imaginable.
The conventional financial industry touts gaining financial independence by playing Wall Street's game: working a conventional job for decades to accumulate a chunk of money in retirement funds that Wall Street wizards magically squeeze for hefty annual returns in a zero-yield world--in a completely risk-free manner that keeps your nest egg intact, of course. 
However, there is another avenue to financial independence, and it is not so much about retirement--it's about financial independence during your career/working life as well as retirement. The ideal retirement scenario for the self-employed is simply a reduction in the work you don't much like and a continuation of the work you enjoy until the end of your life.  
My credo is: Focus not on retiring comfortably, but on working comfortably.  
Self-employment is a core mythology of the American Dream --working for yourself as the ideal form of work. Self-employment's place in the pantheon of American ideals did not prepare me for startling reality that a mere 5% of the workforce (about 7.4 million out of 145 million) earn a middle class living as self-employed (i.e. sole proprietors or partnerships/S-corporations with no employees). - Of Two Minds

Charles Hugh Smith goes on to point out six (which is by far not the limit of) different ways one can make a very good standard of living by working for themselves, and outside the employee paradigm.

1. Establishing a profession is one tried-and-true way to be self-employed. Obtaining the diploma and license does not guarantee an income, of course, as competition can be plentiful in certain professions and regions. 

 2. Owning rental properties is a path to financial independence that works for almost 3 million people/households. 

 3. Owning the rights to creative content or patents that generate royalties is a ticket to financial independence for 1.25 million people. 

 4. There are many other sole proprietorships (about 3 million based on the IRS data) that manage to net $50,000 or more annually. Presumably some qualify as Mobile Creatives who cobble together several income streams to generate enough to live independently. 

 5. Over 10 million people are earning meaningful sums from small (less than $50K/yr) enterprises, rentals and royalties. These don't generate $50,000 a year, but they still make an important contribution to financial independence, income and capital/wealth. 

 6. Businesses that eventually earn $50,000 or more typically start small, so many of the people currently earning less than $10K/year could over time increase their income or add another modest income stream.

In recent news reports I found two examples of people who took the initiative to use at least one of the above methods to make money without being tied to a job or employer.  For instance, one woman took the idea of using the internet and a little marketing knowledge, and with only $500 turned the selling of t-shirts into a $250,000 per year income in less than 2 years.

A second idea, and one that has been highly controversial because of his greed rather than the idea, was a former CEO who purchased an expired drug patent and intends to receive royalty proceeds from the selling of the drug.


Yet there are thousands, if not millions of ways that you can own and grow your own business for minimal cost while not slaving away 8-16 hours like you would if you opened a business on Main Street.  People on Ebay have learned to make six figures from selling products made elsewhere by coordinating with manufacturers in Mexico and China, and simply having the companies deliver orders as they come in.  In addition, the Affiliate Marketing program that is used by the likes of Amazon.com is a way that people can earn extra income by simply referring others to purchase on that site things they already intended to buy.

And of course there is the burgeoning self-publishing arena, where thousands of people can write a book in Word or other processing software, convert it to .PDF and EPUB for free from software found all over the internet, and sell it on places like Amazon and The Book Patch, which in addition to selling your ebooks, will also publish hard backed books as orders come in, and with no need of inventories.

In fact, for about $8-20 per year you can even purchase a domain name, get a free Blooger or Wordpress blog, find free templates such as the one used on this site, and eventually get enough traffic where you can apply for Google Ads and receive residual income for people coming to your site and seeing your work.

There are literally thousands of possibilities for Americans to become both financially independent, and live the dream of being self-employed.  And there is one business model that I recommend, and am a part of that not only provides the opportunity for infinite income, but is a product that everyone loves, buys, and wears everyday in one form or another that could also save your family's financial wealth as the economy accelerates towards the next global crisis.

The opportunity is in a company called Karatbars

Thanks to global inflation and stagnant wages, more people in poverty despite rise in standards

As a former Treasury Secretary to Richard Nixon once said to the rest of the world after the dollar was removed from the gold standard, “The dollar is our currency, but it is your problem.”  And in the years following the dollar morphing into a purely fiat form of money, the world has experienced this omen in great measure as the U.S. has exported its inflation to other locations as it expanded the money supply to astronomical levels.
And it is because of this inflation factor, coupled with a global wage stagnation that facilitated a decline in purchasing power, that has helped create more poverty around the world, despite the fact that the World Bank just raised the bar on what it considers poverty wages.  On Sept. 24, the World Bank modeled a new raising of the bar from $1.25 earned per day to $1.90, which would increase the categorized number of poor people around the world by hundreds of millions.

Retail sales in U.S. fall back to recession levels

The U.S. is no longer a manufacturing economy, and is instead a consumer based one where over 70% of the annual GDP is tied to consumer and government spending.  So when this single component drops by even a small amount quarter to quarter or year to year, it creates a huge impact on the overall growth for America.
Which is why new data from Johnson-Redbook shows that consumer spending growth has fallen to levels not seen since the Great Recession (2009), and forecasts for the upcoming holiday season are expected to be the weakest in five years.

Stock market and corporate earnings might have been final straw for Fed’s rate decision

Since the Fed made its shocking no-call last week on its decision whether to raise interest rates, analysts have been not only questioning the true state of the economy, but also have been insinuating that the central bank’s credibility may be completely shot.  But as we look at new data coming out on corporate earnings, especially those on the S&P 500, their declines year over year (yoy) coupled with global and domestic stock markets being in sudden free fall may have been the reasons why 11 months of interest rate rhetoric was instantly thrown out the window.
Profit growth for the S&P 500 companies is at its weakest point since 2009. That’s because, in fact, there isn’t any profit growth.
S&P 500 earnings for the first half of the year are expected to show a 0.7% contraction compared to a year ago, according to numbers from FactSet research. Growth in the first quarter was a meager 1.1%, but the second quarter is more than offsetting that, expected to contract at a 2.2% rate, FactSet estimates. The last time the S&P 500 saw a year-over-year decline for the first half of a year was 2009, when earnings positively cratered at the depths of the global recession, down 30.9%. – Wall Street Journal via Zerohedge

Got Karatbars? Elite buying large positions in metals as the gold standard returns to U.S.

With the Federal Reserve last week choosing to not touch interest rates and instead signal to the world that the global monetary system is too fragile to withstand even a .25 bps hike, those within the elite like George Soros and Carl Icahn are shifting gears and buying huge positions in gold in what now appears to be a preparation for a massive move upwards in the precious metals.
The price of gold and silver is set to explode according to one of the most well known CEO’s in the precious metals mining space. Keith Neumeyer, the CEO of one of the world’s lowest-cost primary silver producers, says that the negative headlines surrounding history’s most trusted monetary instruments will soon give way and the smart money, including the likes of George Soros and Carl Icahn, is taking massive positions ahead of the breakout.

Keith Neumeyer: "The fact there are some very substantial new players coming into the sector and taking positions in gold and silver… I think that’s showing that things will change and I think things are in the works as we speak." - SHTFPlan



For years the price of gold and silver has been controlled by a futures market complex that has used the paper spot price to protect the dollar and dollar hegemony.  Many think that the price action for gold and silver is related to the metals themselves, but in fact the Comex and LBMA are used primarily to protect a currency that is on its way to collapse, and for a system that the insiders need to continue for Wall Street's rigged game.

But that game is nearly up, and just as the state of Texas ordered the Fed to repatriate nearly $1 billion worth of physical gold they held for the University foundation, one entity within the precious metal industry and in the state of Utah is making gold and silver money once again, and is allowing its use through an institution which will serve the capacity as someone's bank account.
As of today you really can pay your taxes, your credit cards, your mortgage, shop at Costco, and buy your groceries without so much as a bank account while using sound money. 
The United Precious Metals Association in Utah has gold and now separate silver accounts that act as checking accounts do at any bank or credit union. The way it works is that members deposit Federal Reserve Notes (or paper dollars) into their UPMA account which in turn translates them into golden dollars (or silver). The golden dollars are based off the $50 one ounce gold coins produced by the Treasury of The United States. They are legal tender under the law and are protected as such. So if I were to deposit $1,200 FRNs then I would have $50 golden dollars. - Popular Liberty
So no matter what the talking heads on CNBC say, or paid economists within the New York Times who refer to gold as a 'pet rock' write, the world is rushing headlong into a return of the gold standard, and a return to sound money.

But unless you happen to live in Utah, and can afford to move into gold at the price of $1200 an ounce to utilize gold backed money, what alternatives are there for you where you can both buy affordable gold, and be able to use it as you see fit as money, while also having the opportunity to earn commissions to buy your own gold by referring others?

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.

Want the signal that gold is going up in price soon? Now we may have it

The first rule of precious metal stacking club is that you don’t talk about precious metal stacking club.  And while this may be a clever play on words from the cult classic movie, Fight Club, in the investment arena it is a given rule that you also don’t talk about positions you are accumulating until you already have your shares bought.
The reason why is, if everyone discovered that a heavy trader or hedge fund manager like Carl Icahn or George Soros were buying something in great quantities, then people would rush in to get on their coattails to profit from some inside information only they might have.
Which makes it very interesting to discover that the insiders and elites who have publicly discredited physical precious metals like gold and silver for years now are themselves buying it en masse when the media and their paid tools on business television are dissuading everyone else that gold is worthless, and little more than a ‘pet rock’.

As the U.K. mulls leaving the EU, new agreements with China show direction of next global system

When Prime Minister David Cameron’s Tory party won the last British election with a resounding mandate, a key component of this was tied to a future referendum vote on whether to leave the European Union, or remain in its political sphere for the foreseeable future.  But as Europe, the U.S., and most Western financial entities are beginning to financially breakdown, and show no signs of ending their money printing schemes, Britain is again looking Eastward and towards the Yuan as a serviceable replacement for the Euro or even the dollar.
The City of London is considered one of the three primary financial centers in the global economy, and when they decided over the past year to create a Yuan swap line and facilitate the selling of RMB denominated bonds, the writing was on the wall that Britain was going to look out for itself despite attempts by the Eurozone to lash together all nations under a singular monetary policy.

China approves new agreement with Argentina for bi-lateral trade in own currencies

Argentina has gone through extreme economic turmoil over the past few years, including a default on their sovereign bond obligations that has put their nation in financial extremes that are even affecting their political system.  But like Iceland, who chose to suffer a short term recession in exchange for punishing the bankers who created their financial crisis, the country may now be looking for new ways to get out from under the Western backed monetary system of control.
On Sept. 20, China authorized the creation of a Yuan swap-line agreement with Argentina which will facilitate direct bi-lateral trade between the two countries using the RMB instead of the dollar.

Got Karatbars? Fed rate announcement is followed by even more shortages in gold supplies

On Sept. 17, the Federal Reserve made the announcement heard 'round the world as the U.S. central bank signaled to the world that the global economy is in such dire straits that they couldn't even raise interest rates by .25 from their current levels of zero percent.  This immediately sent shock waves to other central banks as just a day later, calls for new rounds of money printing took place out of the Bank of England, the ECB, and even banks from Australia, with suggestions of even greater policies such as negative interest rates and ending cash altogether being included in their commentary.

Yet for those who have been reading this blog, or other alternative financial sources, the banks have not been blind to what the media has been telling the general public regarding the economy, the dollar, and the overall global financial system.  And as we have seen over the past few months, accumulation of available gold and silver has led to massive shortages that now even threaten to empty the GLD fund which backstops the paper gold markets.
While the drain of COMEX gold and silver Registered inventories continues as demand for physical precious metals increases, JP Morgan experienced a 45% decline of its Registered Gold Inventories in one day.  JP Morgan now only has a lousy 10,777 oz of gold remaining in its Registered gold inventories.  
Basically, JP Morgan holds 1/3 metric ton of gold in its Registered inventories.  This is the reason we are seeing the paper gold ratio on the COMEX above the 250/1 ratio.  If we look at the COMEX warehouse table below, we can see just how little Registered Gold remains on the exchange: - SRS Rocco

This report represents all the gold in all U.S. banks backstopping the paper futures contracts, and has helped skyrocket the paper to physical ratio to 250:1.  Which of course then begs the question, how long can the Comex or GLD survive when it has 250 demands on every ounce of gold it claims to hold in the vaults?

Knowledge of this weakness in supply, and the continuing failure of the global financial system has spilled out into the retail sector as premiums of gold coins from dealers is growing precipitously as demand has now reached historic all-time highs.

HSBC described gold demand from the U.S. Mint as being at a “historically high level” which indeed it has been. The bank report that the Mint has sold 322,000 ounces of gold in the first half of this month.  
Of this, only 91,000 ounces were made up of Gold Eagle coins – the most popular coin with retail investors – although some market participants believe that some of the stock may be being accumulated by large institutional investors.  
And yet, demand for gold eagles is still very strong with demand in Q3 set to dwarf demand of the previous two quarters. With two weeks still to go, total Gold Eagle coin sales have been a staggering 352,500 ounces. - Goldcore
So why has there been a run on gold (and silver) not seen since the 1980's by primarily bullion banks, and consumers who are in fear of what is coming?  An interesting interview by the Dollar Vigilante Jeff Berwick may shed some light on this, and point towards the complete collapse of the dollar as the culprit.



So with dealers, banks, and even sovereign mints running out of supplies at the same time prices are soaring in the physical markets, what alternatives and options are available for you to not only protect your wealth, get it out of the banks and outside the dollar, while at the same time having the power to keep it stored in a physical asset like gold?

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.

Muslim leader in Central Asian country calls for progressive taxes on acts of sex

In the United States today we have a radical religious activist by the name of Kim Davis, who is becoming a 21st century version of Carrie Nation, and who is trying to bring about a one woman battle against homosexual marriage the same way Nation did against drinking just prior to Prohibition.  But for another religious zealot that resides in a country located in Central Asia, a leader within the religion of Islam is starting his own radical campaign by proposing a new tax scheme on sex.
Murat Telibekov of the Muslim Union of Kazakhstan has come up with a comprehensive list of progressive taxes based on various kinds of sexual intercourse, and the myriad of ways and parameters sex is carried out by citizens and foreigners within the country.  The taxes being proposed range from punitive ones for short-term missionary acts, to much higher taxes for exotic or out of wedlock fornication.

One day after the Fed caters to markets, census bureau validates recovery was for the rich

The Federal Reserve has never had a mandate to either listen to, or enact, polices predicated towards the equity markets in the United States or abroad.  But since the middle of the Greenspan era, and the rise of investment banks controlling major portions of the stock markets through high frequency trading, the implementations of the Greenspan Put, the Bernanke Put, and after yesterday, the Yellen Put, have clearly shown that the central bank is all about protecting the rich, and now the Census Bureau has validated this assertion.
In a new report published by the Census Bureau, only the top 10% have seen their incomes rise since the top of the Housing Bubble era of 2006, and this in part has been due to taxpayer funded bailouts, the crushing of small businesses through their inability to get capital, corporate layoffs and stock buybacks, and most importantly, the Federal Reserve pumping tens of trillions of dollars onto Wall Street that never trickled down to the lower 90%.

Fed leaves interest rates the same signalling economy is not in a good state

Fed Day has finally arrived, and just as many here in the alternative media believed, the central bank did nothing.  However, even more than simply keeping interest rates at zero for the foreseeable future, comments by Fed Chairman Janet Yellen signaled that not only is the economy not in as good a state as they have been parroting for the past year, but global downturns have even brought up the conversation for the central bank to take rates negative to try to stimulate inflation.
The results of no hike in interest rates brought a drop in the dollar, a rise in gold, and a steady move up for equities.  But the uncertain move that has yet to be seen will come over the next few days in Europe and in Asia, as their currencies will all rise and require necessary adjustments in the midst of an ongoing currency war to beat each other to the bottom.

Got Karatbars? Amidst metal shortages, India buys 126 tons of gold in August alone

Earlier this week we mentioned the fact that one of the primary gold and silver markets in the world (London) was virtually out of precious metals, and in a bind to provide delivery for the growing number of contracts that are accumulating around the world.  And with India's import ban having been lifted in recent months, the nation where over 1.4 billion people hold their wealth around their necks in physical gold is well on their way to draining the rest of the West's remaining reserves, and putting the precious metals market on life support.

In the month of August 2015, India imported 126 tonnes of gold and 1,400 tonnes of silver, according to data from Infodrive India.Gold import into India is rising after a steep fall due to government import restrictions implemented in 2013. 
Year-to-date India has imported 654 tonnes of gold, which is 66 % up year on year. 6,782 tonnes in silver bars have crossed the Indian border so far this year, up 96 % y/y. 
Gold import is set to reach an annualized 980 tonnes, which would be up 26 % relative to 2014 and would be the second highest figure on (my) record – my record goes back to 2008. - Bullionstar

Of course, what is interesting in all of this vast demand by countries and peoples around the world is the fact that the price has hardly budged, and in fact has gone down according to the baseline of the long-standing London Fix committee.  This of course bring an interesting paradox to the concept of supply and demand, but when you realize the Comex spot price that is the current determiner of precious metal commodity prices is one of the most manipulated markets in history, one has to take the view that the purpose behind this is to both dissuade those who might move their savings into gold, and to protect the dollar which is the foundation behind all U.S. policy just as silver was to Britain during their reign in the 19th century.

Yet tomorrow may be a turning point for gold and silver, and it rests on the critical decision that will be made by the Federal Reserve in regards to the raising of interest rates on Sept. 17.  Because no matter what choice the central bank decides to make, it will have an incredible effect on both the price of gold, and the demand for gold since a yes vote to raise rates will cause the equity markets to drop precipitously, and a no vote will contradict the Fed's rhetoric that not only is the economy not continuing in recovery mode, but that their analysis via data dependency means they will soon have to embark on QE4 and even greater money printing than was done from the previous five years combined.



So with the Fed caught in a trap no matter if they raise rates or not, and the results of their decision having vast effects on price inflation, the global currency war, and corporate lending and job creation, what options are left for the common people to protect their money and wealth against all contingencies, and provide even a modicum of security for the uncertain and chaotic roads ahead?

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?

As the Fed weighs the merits of raising interest rates, poverty in America now at record levels

With a former tech giant announcing yesterday that they are laying off another 30,000 skilled workers, the writing is on the wall for just how much the economy has really recovered since 2008 under the great Fed experiment.  And while the central bank sits right now in a closed door meeting one day before they are to announce their most important policy direction in over five years, the fact of the matter is that whether they do or don’t raise rates will be a meaningless gesture to the over 46 million Americans who have not seen a drop of the vast trillions which have been poured into the economy over the past seven years, and who are a part of a record number of Americans living in poverty.
In addition to new poverty numbers released today by the Census Bureau, the median income for American households has also fallen back to levels not seen since 1989, when interest rates back then were above 10%, and the ability to afford a home and education were much more easily accessible.

Next Democrat hopeful wants to follow in Obama’s footsteps by doubling national debt

Socialism works until you run out of other people’s money.  This is a famous quote that was attributed to the former Prime Minister of Britain during the final decade of the Cold War, and during the rise of socialism in what would become the European Union.  And since the 1980’s when capitalism flourished in its final decade of free markets, growth has been measured not by productivity, but by how much administrations around the world could increase their money supplies and national debts.
And while many Republican Presidents, including the well respected conservative Ronald Reagan, have used borrowing to facilitate their goals and agendas, it has been the current President, and the front runner from the Democratic Party for the 2016 election, that have placed any semblance of fiscal responsibility in the distant past, and could potentially be two back to back Presidents who would double the national debt during their times in office.

Election of Britain’s new communist labour party leader microcosm of wealth disparity

Over the weekend, Britain’s Labour Party held an election to vote for their next leader after the conservative Tories swept through a majority of seats in the House of Commons last May.  And with Labour in veritable turmoil from years of declining support, the winner of the election was an interesting man named Jeremy Corbyn, who is not only a radical leftist, but an extremely opinionated Marxist who wants to radically change Britain at a time when the world is rushing headlong into economic crisis.
Jeremy Corbyn, the infamous Karl Marx admirer, has been elected UK opposition Labour leader.  Corbyn is really communist who professes an admiration for Karl Marx. He is the new face of Britain’s opposition Labour party which will help to make a British EU exit more likely. The Marxist sophistry is rob anyone who has more. They never understand that we all provide our piece of the economy that creates the whole. Many are starting to realize that this could be thedownturn for Britain. – Armstrong Economics

Got Karatbars? Your options to get physical gold are now limited as even London is virtually wiped out

Over the past several months, the run on physical metals such as gold and silver have been as great as the demands of 2008, and even those that took place in 1980.  And besides the fact that sovereign mints such as those in the United States and in Canada have halted sales of bullion coins to brokers and dealers since early summer, even independent dealers and mints are experiencing backlogs of nearly six weeks to get their customers any physical metals.

But as the financial signals spreading from Asia to Europe, and again to the U.S. scream of a market and currency collapse, or at the very least a severe recession coming upon us, North America is not the only place where physical gold and silver is getting scarce, and according to well known metals analyst Koos Jansen, it is nearly impossible to get it from ground zero... ie... London.

Just after my colleague Ronan Manly wrote a very extensive article on how much gold is left in London (not much), Petropavlovsk Chairman and Co-Founder Peter Hambro discusses gold at Bloomberg Television. He, like Manly, concludes there is very little physical gold left in London. From Mr Hambro:
My baseline is they [the Chinese] have been buying and the Indian have been buying in enormous quantities. It’s virtually impossible to get physical gold in London to ship to those countries. We get permanent requests from Russia, would we please sell our physical gold to India and China. Because there is no physical, only endless promises. And I really worry that the market, that paper market, could be stamped on and people will say “sorry we’ll have a financial close out”, and it’s all over.
Perhaps this quote explains why UK gold export directly to China in June was not a net outflow from the UK – because there is little gold left in London (Manly, Hambro) and thus the UK had to ramp up import from the US in June to send forward to China.
The Financial Times reported on similar gold shortages in London. From the FT (2 September):
The cost of borrowing physical gold in London has risen sharply in recent weeks. That has been driven by dealers needing gold to deliver to refineries in Switzerland before it is melted down and sent to places such as India, according to market participants.
“[The rise] does indicate there is physical tightness in the market for gold for immediate delivery,” said Jon Butler, analyst at Mitsubishi.
I’ve also asked BullionStar CEO Torgny Persson in Singapore what he’s currently seeing in the precious metals markets. He replied there are shortages in both the gold and silver market. From Mr Persson:
I just got off the phone with A-Mark which is one of the world’s largest wholesalers. They are reporting that they have no gold and silver at all live available, that they have stopped taking orders for Silver Maples and Silver Philharmonics altogether and that Silver Eagles are available first in the end of November. ForPamp, there is similarly long delivery times for all minted gold bars.
We still have most products in stock because we stocked up as massively as we could in the last weeks but for many products, we are unable to replenish as of now when we run out.
Big squeeze with shortages starting now both on the wholesale/retail level and at the bulk level… Unless the paper price is reverting up, it may not subside this time around and then the paper fiat mess (including paper prices of gold and silver) is in trouble. If it goes to the point of shortages at the bulk level like 1kg gold bars and 1000 oz silver bars, the emperor will stand without clothes. - Bullion Star

So if you are still looking to get some physical gold now that demand is at a near all-time high, and supplies are so scarce that delays are upwards of two months before delivery, what alternatives do you have to not only secure your wealth, but protect yourself from the coming paradigm shift that will end the era of fiat currencies and bring a return to the gold standard?

Shemitah arrives: Markets now opening for a very interesting week

September 13, or Elul 29 on the Hebrew calendar has finally arrived, and is occurring on a day in which the markets are closed for primary trading.  However, with Asia beginning their Monday open while the West still resides in the Shemitah for a few more hours,  the opportunity for market chaos because of the frequency of this event is still alive and well, and will continue at least until the Fed announces its policy changes for the coming months this Thursday.
The idea behind the Shemitah is that it entails a spiritual law from God that requires man to heed certain economic requirements when it comes to debts, land, finances, and even agriculture.  Every seven years the land, (or in this case markets), must be allowed to remain fallow, and with little productivity so that the economic system can use this year to dissolve toxic assets and prepare the land (or markets) for new blessings.  However, when man chooses not to heed this commandment or policy, nature itself will force a dissolution of wealth, and we have seen this occur time and time again in the markets going back as far 1873 in modern times.

Capital controls are springing up that question your traveling with gold or silver

The well known offshore economist Doug Casey discovered some new and disturbing things lately while travelling throughout the boundaries of South and Central America.  In fact, what occurred during his trips through customs in a number of countries appears to be a growing trend for anyone who might be needing to travel with their wealth on their persons if stored in the form of gold and silver coins.
These events that Casey shared on in his most recent publication are in regards to what appears to now be de facto capital controls that mandate officials not only question, but also investigate anyone carrying physical gold and silver on their person, or in their luggage when they cross over from one country into another.

The last weekend before the Fed makes their most important decision of the last five years

It is now less than six days before the Fed will announce perhaps its most important decision of the last five years… whether to raise interest rates or keep rates where they are.  And while analysts have been making predictions on this potentially game changing event, very few actually know what the results will be because whichever choice is made will have detrimental consequences for the economy.
What has really been the catalyst for the divergence in the Fed simply jawboning that they will raise rates for nearly a year is the fact that nearly all economic data points have been either manipulated or reported as outright lies which have skewed the belief that the economy is in recovery and strong enough to stand on its own if interest rates began to rise.  And for all the propaganda behind consumer spending, unemployment, gdp, and corporate earnings being ‘very good’ as the wombats on CNBC promote each and every day, the U.S. central bank has to know the truth behind all of these ponzi schemes and it makes acting in accordance to their own rhetoric very difficult when the reality of the data is both in opposition to their words, and in some cases even worse than before 2008.
