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? Is the Fed purposely trying to collapse the system to allow a return to the gold standard

One of the current memes going around our culture is to ask if someone is 'smarter than a 5th grader' when a person or institution's opinions, analysis, or views are so illogical that one has to question the educational level of the speaker.  And in our current financial system, that is in complete opposition to how individuals are forced to deal with debt and money, there has always been alot of head shaking when central banks say they must create more debt to be able to deal with their current debt.


But what if the move starting in the 1990's to accelerate the creation of debt worldwide was on purpose, and for the exact reason to both collapse the system and allow for the re-emergence of a gold standard?  This is exactly what was proposed during the 1960's in a Nobel Prize winning paper that offered a theory that the world should go to a completely fiat monetary system in order to expand the money supply to astronomical levels where the money could be used to create technologies, infrastructures, and growth that couldn't be achieved under a limited gold backed system.  Then when debt levels and loss of confidence in that fiat money had reached its apex, a collapse would occur which would allow nations to more easily return to the gold standard, with the added benefit of 40-50 years of construction, innovation, and infrastructures already having been built.

Think this is crazy or insane?  Well according to precious metals analyst and economist Bix Weir, a regional Fed office has been following this blueprint now for decades.

So, can the financial powers keep manipulating the U.S. dollar forever? Weir say, “I think they can, they have and they will as long as it is in the United States’ advantage.  It’s been our advantage to run this un-backed fiat system.  We have been the world’s reserve currency for a long time.  Now, we are the largest debtor nation in the world.  Now, we have all these problems with currencies.  It’s turning into a place where it is no longer to our advantage.  With the click of a mouse, we can end this game.” 
It won’t just be a debt default, and Weir explains, “It will be a default on our monetary system. Yes, it is a default on our debt, but it won’t be just the U.S.  It will be everybody, and it will be blamed on the banks.  They have set it up that way.  They gave the banks enough rope to hang themselves.  What it’s going to do is get rid of all this debt.  The biggest problem in the world now is debt.  Some people are going to be very mad at the U.S.  People are going to be very nationalistic, and it’s already started in the U.S. with Trump.  We will become nationalistic, and we will shut our borders when this crash happens.  This is the only way to get rid of the mess, and you and I know this mess is completely out of control. . . .There is no way out, and the idea was to never pay the debt.” 
Weir also adds, “I talk about this a lot, and this comes directly from the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, and it comes from a 1960’s Nobel Prize winning paper, and it says the only way to get back to a gold standard is to print money in the largest amounts as you can—to infinity and collapse the system, and then go back to the gold standard. That’s what they’ve been doing.” – USA Watchdog
Perhaps it is critical that we look at the past seven years of zero interest rates and tens of trillions in quantitative easing to realize that there was a method to this madness.  By this, the Fed had to ensure that most of the new money didn't trickle down to the general economy to cause massive price inflation, while at the same time funding projects that would use this fiat currency in ways that would leave a legacy for both America and the world when the financial system finally shuttered and collapsed under its own 'debt weight' (yes pun intended).

China in particular has done this to perfection, using the fact that both Europe and the United States were creating tens of trillions of dollars and euros in new debt to print their own excess money supply in Yuan which they used to update and modernize nearly the entire country with infrastructure and technology that will remain when the global financial system fails.

Either way, central banks appear to know that the current monetary and financial systems are doomed to fail, and perhaps because this was their intention from the beginning.  And as we come closer and closer to that day of reckoning, where the trigger point comes when a critical mass of people lose complete confidence in fiat money, central banks know that the system that will come out of the collapse will be a return to the form of money that functioned very well prior to this for over 5000 years.

So if it is not a question of when or what the new monetary system will be when it takes eventually takes place, how can you protect yourself and your wealth that is denominated in the same fiat currencies that are expected to fail only to be replaced by a gold standard?

You can protect your wealth with 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, Karatbars is working on a new e-wallet system 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?

U.S. beyond insolvent as financial filings show $3.2 trillion in assets and $21.5 trillion in debt

Each year the United States government files a financial statement showing their assets and liabilities through the Department of the Treasury.  And while previous years have been similar to 2015, in that their liabilities outweigh assets by a large margin, never before has the deficit been as extraordinary as it was calculated on Feb. 27.
This because the United States (which is a corporation by the way), has assets valued at $3.2 trillion while showing short-term liabilities at over $21.5 trillion.  This is a difference of $18.3 trillion in the red, and in every single instance of financial definition would make the country (or corporation) insolvent and bankrupt.

It didn’t take long for Japanese citizens to rush to get their money out of their banks thanks to NIRP

If the world ever wanted to see in real time what people do when their government puts a tax on their savings, then all they need to do is take a look at Japan now that their central bank has implemented a negative interest rate policy (NIRP).  Because just weeks after the Bank of Japan’s (BOJ) head Kuroda announced the new policy out of thin air, runs to get cash out of banks have begun in earnest, with sales of personal safes exploding across the country and people stacking them with millions of 10,000 yen currency bills.
NIRP is a draconian tax on anyone with money in a bank account, or paper investment account, and is done in the attempt to force the spending of money whether the people want to do this or not.

Germany's biggest financial institution Deutsche Bank tells investors to buy gold

Was it prudence or capitulation that led Germany's largest, and invariably most insolvent financial institution Deutsche Bank to tell their investors on Feb. 26 to buy gold?  But either way this recommendation could not have come at a better time.  This is because two days ago gold hit what it known as a 'Golden Cross' on technical charts, meaning the trend for prices is upwards and headed towards a strong bull market.

And perhaps most importantly, Deutsche Bank stands on the precipice of not only becoming bankrupt themselves, but they have the potential to take down many major banks in Europe and the United States due to their $70 trillion in derivative exposure.


Buy gold as “insurance is warranted” Deutsche Bank have advised in a note issued today.  
The embattled German bank has said that rising economic risks and market turmoil mean investors should buy gold for insurance.
Since the beginning of the year gold is by far the market's best performing asset, and in a recent look at historic trends is the best start for a year since 1980 when it completed a massive bull run from $35 per ounce to $850 an ounce over the course of a decade.


Saudi Arabia gains a strong victory as 18 month battle to kill U.S. fracking fells big opponent

Geo-politics is a messy business, and quite often much more complex than domestic politics.  Because when one nation decides to implement a policy that has global ramifications, more often than not innocents can get killed in the crossfire, and the actual goals of the government citing the conflict may exist far beyond those announced publicly.
When the leading head of the OPEC cartel decided to start an energy war by lowering the price of oil to levels not seen since the 1980’s, it started a chain reaction that would come to include Russia, the United States, Turkey, Canada, Mexico, and even Iran.  In fact, one could argue that Saudi’s oil gambit was the catalyst for forcing the U.S. to settle their decade’s long dispute with Iran as a means to put pressure on the Saudi’s to come back to Washington’s hegemony.
And despite the fact that Saudi Arabia was cutting their own throats in lowering oil prices, on Feb. 25 it appears they have finally taken a major piece from the board as the largest U.S. fracking company in the Bakken region of North Dakota announced they were halting production.

Brazil ready to become first country to create new communications network bypassing the U.S.

Edward Snowden and Julian Assange are not just whistleblowers in the global war to protect data and information, they are catalysts which are forcing many nations to look at the United States differently as the undisputed nexus for communication command and control.  And no longer is Washington considered a benefactor to global security as they were seen as during the tumultuous Cold War years, but instead with the revelations that the U.S. is data mining everyone’s global communications, including those of world leaders, the rush to isolate America and find new ways of direct data transit between nations is underway.
On Feb. 25, Brazil announced a new $250 million project to install communication lines directly to Europe which would bypass the U.S. and the world’s primary information super highway, and instead create their own channel that would act as a firewall against NSA and other agency spying mechanisms.

Got Karatbars? Rumors emerge that China will begin new gold price fix around April 19

When China chose to extend the period for when they would begin implementation of a new gold pricing mechanism back in December, the tentative expectations were that it would occur sometime in April of 2016.  Now on Feb. 25, a number of sources are saying that April 19 is the day that this will finally take place, and that a new gold price will be fixed not in dollar denominations, but in the Yuan currency.


China has been preparing for a competitive gold price fix for more than a year, ever since they opened the Shanghai Gold Exchange to function as the world's largest physical gold market.  And since every indication shows that inventories in both London and the U.S. Comex are pretty much empty, it should not be long before China usurps complete control over physical gold pricing, and wrests hegemony from the West after more than 100 years.
China plans to launch its new yuan-denominated gold pricing fix on April 19 this year, sources familiar with the matter said on Thursday. 
The launch date has been officially settled and draft trading rules have been sent out to those banks that will be involved in the Shanghai fixing, FastMarkets understands. 
The banks that will participate in the planned launch are predominently Chinese but FastMarkets understands that foreign banks could also be involved, according to sources. 
It is likely that the 10 banks that are official market makers in the system set up by the SGE in January to facilitate interbank gold trading will participate in the yuan-denominated fixing, one source said. 
Most Chinese banks in the list of  ‘official’ market makers probably will be involved in the fix, the source noted, alongside one foreign bank. – Bullion Desk

Control over gold prices is actually just the first step in China's overall plan to facilitate a return to gold backed money.  And what is also of interest is an article written today by precious metal analyst Bill Holter who suggested that this weekend's G20 meeting could lay the foundations for the Global Currency Reset, and the beginning of a return to the gold standard in currencies and trade.

Once either of these two events are announced (new gold price, global currency reset), the price and supply of gold will become extremely high, and extremely rare as individuals will have to compete with central banks to acquire whatever remains in the open market.  But for each person now who wants to both protect and prepare their wealth for what appears to be a sea change in the global monetary system, there is one sure way of doing this and it is with a company called Karatbars.

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.

Canada following India in trying new scheme to get people to trust banks with their gold and silver

In November of last year, the government of India attempted to lure their citizens into depositing their physical gold into banks with the enticement of an interest bearing gold savings account.  However, barely a few tons were garnered from the people for this scheme showing that distrust in both the banks and governments to actually protect their gold is quite high.
And now just days after the Canadian government sold off most of its remaining gold reserves, a Canadian physical gold distributor, Canadian Bullion Services, is channeling its inner India and attempting to entice the Canadian people to follow the same path with their own offer of an interest bearing gold savings scheme.

India, Vietnam, and Israel are siding with Russia over the U.S. in joining the EEU

100 years ago, much of the world was interlaced with military pacts and alliances that eventually led to the first global war.  Now in 2016, many of these same nations are rushing towards new alliances and coalitions but under the name of trade and economics.
On the side of the U.S. are the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) which has garnered 12 countries in South America and the Pacific Rim, and is in the process of trying to coax EU states onto their ledger.  And in Eurasia and the Far East, both Russia and China are creating free trade zones that do not require ‘secret’ and non-transparent pacts that are hidden from the citizens of nations, and in many cases, hidden even from most of the officials they want to bring on board.
Yet despite the power of U.S. hegemony, more and more country’s are choosing the Eastern trade pacts, with three new economies beginning talks with Russia to join their growing Eurasian Economic Union (EEU).

Watch for gold to spike upwards this weekend as India may remove import duties on the precious metal

By a long shot, India is and has been one of the largest gold buyers and collectors in the world.  But over the past two years government officials have slowed down their purchasing through a series of draconian duties on gold imports that have driven the population to change course and accumulate silver at record levels.

This weekend however may change this course once again as it is expected that the import tariffs that suffocated the flow of gold into the markets will be removed, causing the potential for a $50 spike in gold to over $1300 in the short term, and a medium term price rise to over $1400.
All lights for gold are green, and rather than beginning a correction, gold may be poised to intensify its rally. 
Investors with widely differing views on gold all seem to be pressing their buy buttons at the same time. That’s something that has not happened in a long time. The bottom line is this: 
Key bank economists are forecasting a new upcycle for commodities, which will begin later this year, India may cut the import duty on Sunday night (February 28), Shanghai prepares to launch its gold price fix, gold ETFs are adding serious tonnage, the chartists are happy, and most discussion of US interest rate policy (whether hawkish or dovish) is bullish for gold. - Silver Doctors
In addition to this, all eyes in the precious metal world are focusing on April when China's physical gold market, the Shanghai Gold Exchange, is expected to begin pricing gold in Yuan rather than dollars, and setting in motion the end of U.S. and London hegemony over determination of gold prices.

Karatbars affiliate V, the Guerrilla Economist interview on SGT Reports

Late yesterday, our very own Karatbar affiliate V, the Guerrilla Economist spoke in an interview over at SGT Reports on NIRP (negative interest rates), and what will happen to gold as people rush out of the banking system and into the safe haven of precious metals.


And like V's assessments, others are also forecasting the coming super rise in gold prices due to failing central bank policies and a new oncoming global collapse.

Earlier this month, as retail investors lost confidence in the global economy and broader stock markets, an air of panic began to set in. Reports indicate the lines were literally forming around the block at gold stores throughout London and elsewhere. It was, by all accounts, the very scenario one might expect in an environment where trust in government and central banks has been eroded. 
But it’s only the beginning, explains Auryn Resources executive chairman Ivan Bebek in an interview with SGT Report, as nation states and large investors are trying to get their hands on gold as fast as they can: 
Before any big move in gold we have always seen extreme volatility or volatility pick up. This was just a taste of what’s to come in the next few years… We’ll look back at this and be reflecting on how minimal this move was compared to what’s going to happen as we go forward… 
It’s a smart money trend… they can see where their countries are going… where the world economy is going… it’s surprising how late they are to the party… late to a very small door to get a bit of gold that’s out there… it’s going to be a remarkable reaction when that all comes to fruition. They’re just positioning themselves for what’s to come and that’s what they have to do. And getting back into the gold trade, the gold business and hoarding gold… they’re doing that because they see a very big gold market coming ahead like the rest of us. - SHTFPlan

Gold versus silver ratio the highest since 2008 at 80 to 1

In a sense you could almost put gold and silver in this respect… buy gold for wealth protection and buy silver for investment speculation.  This is because the gold and silver ratio has hit their near all-time high of 80-1, which was last seen near this level seven years ago at the height of the Credit Crisis.
And in that period of time, the banksters have manipulated silver much more than gold to mask their inflationary schemes of quantitative easing, and protect the dollar when these monetary metals would have revealed the currency for what it now really is… near worthless.

New Gallup Poll shows most Americans feel China a more powerful economy than the U.S.

There is a reason why Presidential candidates like Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are making powerful strides in the 2016 election cycle, and it is something that the mainstream fails to recognize.  And despite all the rhetoric and false data used over and over to tell the American people how good and strong their economy is, average citizens are rejecting this propaganda and making their views known in many different ways.
And one way is in how they are dispelling the pundit’s ‘recovery’ myth as a new Gallup Poll out on Feb. 22 shows that more than half of Americans believe China has a much stronger and powerful economy than the U.S. does.

Got Karatbars? Global war on cash is meaningless if you own gold

While it is rather unlikely that the U.S. would dare to eliminate cash altogether, like with guns, it is one of the last remaining freedoms that Americans would come out en masse to protest and fight for.  But the U.S. financial system is no longer simply a domestic entity, and the 21st century global economy affects every nation in one form or another.  So as the world in general rushes headlong into negative interest rates, capital controls, and a war on cash, we as Americans will be affected by their actions since we are both a creditor nation, and one that relies heavily on global imports.

Many people today are used to electronic forms of payment in both online purchasing, and in everyday shopping.  But there is a massive difference between using tools such as debit cards, credit cards, and online bill pay features as a convenience versus not ever being allowed to transport your money from one place to another should you find your bank no longer living up to your expectations, or in a more drastic scenario, insolvent and working towards a capitalization bail-in.



But the point of the matter is, all finance today is built on a debt based system of credit, and not on real or sound money.  And thus the real way to protect yourself while still having the ability to function in a world of electronic convenience is to keep your wealth in assets like physical gold, which supersede any attempts by banks or governments to limit your choices and freedoms as the war on cash escalates.
Negative interest rates?  Big deal.  Over long periods of time the relative value of gold accelerates vs. all other currencies when real rates are negative.  When the Fed takes nominal rates negative the price of gold/silver will begin to go parabolic.  Will that happen immediately?  Of course not.  The Fed will try to cap the price movement of gold with B-52 payloads full of paper gold.  When this happens, take as much cash out of the banking system as possible and convert it into physical gold and silver bullion coins. 
The rampant proliferation of “war on cash / negative interest rate” warnings are little more than the childish rants of alternative media propaganda artists.   It’s like a repetitive announcement that the earth is round and circles the sun.  Yes, we know that the Government is going to digitize the currency system and take interest rates negative in an attempt to channel bank balances into consumption or the stock market or Treasury bonds. 
But whatever measures the Government takes to implement capital controls and increasingly exert more control over your life can be offset if you move as much cash as possible out of the system now and into precious metals. – Dave Kranzler via Silver Doctors


Just like with Bitcoin and facilities such as Paypal, more and more business models are emerging that allow people to function outside the traditional and antiquated banking system.  And more importantly, many of these facilities and companies are structuring themselves outside the purview of governments and banks, and provide a means for people to bank, store their wealth, and above all, protect their wealth in the only money that is not affected by inflation, deflation, negative or zero interest rates and central bank or government policies.

And the best way to both function and protect yourself in this manner is with 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.

Gold prices rising against every currency from Afghanistan to the United States

As many remember from the movie The Big Short, all hell began to break loose in March of 2007 following a year of declining stock market values and global slowdowns.  And justifiably, it was at this time that gold prices also rose in opposition to other asset class declines.


And after reaching its current trend peak in 2011 when the Fed chose to prop up stocks and housing once again with trillions in Quantitative Easing, gold fell back to a new support level of $1050 by the end of 2015.

But 2015 was 2006 in the parallel timeline, and a pre-cursor to the crash that would take place over the next 18 months.  And just as gold was a barometer for anyone watching as to the stability of currencies, economies, and assets eight years ago, it is once acting as that same barometer once again for nations A to Z, and from Afghanistan to the United States.







After two years, IRS finally returns money taken from honest business owner

Fatca, Civil Forfeiture, and deposit restructuring are just some of the obscure and draconian laws and regulations that have come out of Washington since the ideological ‘war on terror’ was introduced a decade ago.  And despite the fact that the U.S. government has spent over one trillion dollars in collecting just $13.5 billion from foreign bank account holders, you would think that well paid bureaucrats would have a modicum of intelligence in determining the difference between a simple business owner, and a drug dealing cartel.
Apparently not.

French President Hollande advocates for the technocratic power of the unelected EU financial system

As the United Kingdom debates on whether to exit the European Union and keep their dual currency mandate within the coalition, French President Francois Hollande on Feb. 19 spoke in opposition to this and instead advocated his support for the unelected technocrats that run the EU’s financial system.  And in comments made during the ongoing EU Summit, Hollande stated that no sovereign nation should have the power to veto decisions made regarding financial regulations within the European Union.
President Hollande’s words support recent comments made by both the French and German central bank heads who called for a centralized finance ministry at the EU level that would supersede all member states within the Union.

Got Karatbars? Pension funds on the brink as Midwestern based one slashes monthly payouts by 50% for 400,000 people

The American dream... where you work for a company or municipality for 30 to 50 years and can retire with the guaranteed promise of a sufficient pension to provide for your golden years.  Unfortunately however, that was last so last century.

Today pension funds in most sectors of industry and public service stand on the brink of insolvency through under-funding by as much as 40%, and this covers pensions managed by unions, private corporations, and municipalities.


Yet who is to blame for this under-funding or mismanagement? Americans can thank none other than Wall Street speculators, corrupt cronyism, and central bank policies for the death of their retirements.

After working 33 years, he’s facing a 55% cut to his pension benefits, a blow which he says will “cripple” his family and imperil the livelihood of his two children, one of whom is in the fourth grade and one of whom is just entering high school.
Dorsey attended a town hall meeting in Kansas City on Tuesday where retirees turned out for a discussion on “massive” pension cuts proposed by the Central States Pension Fund, which covers 400,000 participants, and which will almost certainly go broke within the next decade. 
“A controversial 2014 law allowed the pension to propose [deep] cuts, many of them by half or more, as a way to perhaps save the fund,” The Kansas City Star wrote earlier this week adding that “two much smaller pensions also have sought similar relief under the law, and still more pensions are significantly underfunded.” 
“What’s happening to us is a microcosm of what’s going to happen to the rest of the pensions in the United States,” said Jay Perry, a longtime Teamsters member.
Jay is probably correct. 
Public sector pension funds are grossly underfunded in places like Chicago and Houston, while private sector funds are struggling to deal with rock bottom interest rates, which put pressure on expected returns and thus drive the present value of funds’ liabilities higher. 
Illinois’ pension burden has brought the state to its knees financially speaking and in November, Springfield was forced to miss a $560 million payment to its retirement fund. In the private sector, GM said on Thursday that it will sell 20- and 30-year bonds in order to meet its pension obligations 
"At the end of last year GM's U.S. hourly pension plan was underfunded by $10.4 billion," The New York Times writes. "About $61 billion of the obligations were funded for the plan's roughly 360,000 pensioners." Maybe it's time for tax payers to bail themselves out.  - Zerohedge
We now live in an era where people must take responsibility for their own money, and where trust and reliance upon government, brokers, and retirement planners leads only to broken promises and the potential loss of all you have saved during your years of hard work.  But this is not the end of the world, and thanks to the explosion of the internet and the rise of e-commerce, saving and building a retirement nest egg that is free from market volatility, corrupt fund managers, and central bank policies like zero or negative interest rates is now possible.
And you can do this by not only protecting your retirement, but growing it perpetually with 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, Karatbars is working on a new e-wallet system 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?

New Monopoly game may be signalling bankers ‘ultimate’ goal

Is it on purpose, or just simple coincidence that the newest version of the classic game Monopoly comes out at a time when academics and central bankers are calling in unison for the end of cash?  Because the new Monopoly: Ultimate Banking version is one that is played without cash, and is completely electronic where property, wealth, and taxation is controlled from a central point using a form of debit card as the interface.
Monopoly Ultimate Banking
After nearly a decade of zero interest rates and tens of trillions in quantitative easing, the economy as a whole has not recovered, and is in fact far worse in many sectors than just before the 2008 credit collapse.  And as we have seen in Japan, Switzerland, and Sweden so far, and are not far away from negative interest rates being implemented in the rest of Europe and the United States, the compliment to fulfilling these last resort programs is the ability to regulate all money through a bank, and through electronic systems.

Canadians are losing confidence in all sectors of their financial system

Consumer spending and affordability of products and services are just one component of a domestic economic system that alone it is not enough to bring a complete lack of confidence to a nation’s financial system.  But when you add in a growing decline in confidence for that nation’s currency, retirement programs, and investing structures, you have the ingredients for a rebellion that leads to collapse.
Hyperinflation has almost always been incorrectly defined as an out of balance expansion of a money supply, but the reality is, hyperinflation is a lack of confidence event, and it arises when consumers or producers are unwilling to accept assets denominated in the rejected currency at any price to purchase goods or services.
And it appears that this lack of confidence event may be occurring right now in Canada.

Millennials may be the best prospects and recruits for owning their own business

Perhaps it is a dichotomy, or merely just a stereotype that has enough fuel to become accepted in the mainstream, but society has already labeled millennials for specific traits that are intrinsic to their generation.  And one thing is for certain for this group that emerged from parents of the 'greed is good' 1980's, and that is that the new largest segment of the workforce is willing to walk from a job if it is not satisfying for them, or where they are unlikely to reach long-term goals in a short amount of time.

And while this assessment may sound harsh, like with all things every thorn is attached to a budding flower.  And since mainstream society and the corporate world are both unlikely to change anytime soon since they are ruled mostly by stubborn elders set in their ways in how things are supposed to be, it makes the millennials extremely attractive to the new economy that is based not on working for others, but instead in working for themselves.

A recent Deloitte survey found that two-thirds of millennials across the globe plan to leave their current organization by 2020 and one-quarter plan to change companies within the next year. 
One reason millennials, who now make up the largest segment of the US workforce, are driven to job-hopping is that they don't see enough opportunities for leadership development. But there's a second reason behind millennials' restlessness — and it's considerably harder to fix. 
The problem is what Deloitte calls the purpose gap, and it refers to the difference between what millennials want out of business and what business offers them.According to the survey, 87% of millennials believe that the success of a business should be measured in terms of more than just its financial performance. 
So what kind of metrics do they value? 
The important business outcomes that millennials feel their organizations are neglecting include: improving the skills, income, and satisfaction levels of employees; creating jobs; and providing services and goods that make a positive difference in people's lives. - Business Insider
Remember the real rule of business ownership... it is not always about money or the accumulation of material wealth that is the carrot we dangle in front of a recruit, but rather it is about relationships and building your message to what each prospect can achieve through the business in the pursuit of their desired goals for themselves, and not always in what you or I want believe those goals should be.

Got Karatbars? Owning gold is the best rebellion against the corrupted financial system

In the movie the Big Short, narrator Jarred Vennett implied that prior to the discovery and creation of the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS), banking was a boring occupation where financial advisers offered safe products like government and municipal bonds, or dividend paying utility and energy stocks to investors.  In fact, until the 1980's when Gordon Gecko's 'greed is good' mantra permeated the American psyche, high finance was something very few strived to make their life's work.

But something changed in the early 80's on Wall Street and it may have all started with Alan Greenspan and the Federal Reserve.  This is because a decade after the dollar was removed from the gold standard, America's central bank began their policies of lowering interest rates which vastly increased lending via cheaper money.  And speculation, fraud, and a departure from fiscal responsibility became the fuel that made banking not only a profitable venture, but the new way to become rich with limited liability.

That of course was until the 1987 when stock market crash occurred, and began a different cycle of booms and busts that culminated in even greater and greater explosions, such as the Savings and Loan scandal, the Dot Com bubble, the Housing Bubble and 2008 stock market crash, and in 2016, a derivatives time bomb that could soon destroy the wealth of every individual except for a select few.

But there have been signals along the way for those who actually pay attention to their money instead of simply giving it to Wall Street 'experts' for 30 to 40 years and hoping that at the end it will fund their retirements.  And the very asset that has been both a barometer and a safe haven signal in all of these events has been gold.


Both central bankers and Wall Street hate gold because it not only limits their ability to leverage capital far beyond the boundaries sound money would allow, but it does one other important thing which is to put authority over money back into your hands.  And in the end it is the ultimate rebellion against a corrupted financial system, which in today's world owns most politicians, and can con government's into using taxpayer money to bail them out from their fraud and mistakes.
We’ll be blunt: most financial asset investors really hate gold. 
Anything – even leaving money in the bank – is better than owning gold since at least society has access to your capital through the banking system.  Once you buy physical gold, no one has access to that sliver of your portfolio. 
Of course, that’s actually a feature for the owner since physical gold is no one else’s liability. 
So the notable rally in gold is essentially a protest vote against the global financial system, the equivalent of taking your ball and going home. 
This only happens when investors think central banks have lost their way, and that’s not good news.  Think of gold as a super-duty dive watch.  It can go places humans can’t actually even dive.  The watch will outlive the person wearing it.  Kind of cool, but you don’t necessarily want to test it yourself.  - ConvergEx's Nick Colas via Zerohedge

Gold: Best performing asset of the 21st century, and one of the top 3 since 1971

Because gold was disconnected from money, an interesting thing has occurred which has only been seen a few times in history when precious metals were relegated as commodities rather than as a currency.  It has become a form of investment as well as simply being alternative money or wealth protection, and in fact, has been the best performing asset of the 21st century despite the massive stock, bond, and housing bubbles created through the use of debt and low interest rates.  And it is also one of the top 3 performing assets since its disconnect from currencies beginning in 1971.


So... gold has not only been one of the best investments of the past 45 years, and especially the past 16, it is a way to protect and hedge against inflation and against central bank manipulation of currencies, and lastly it is the one true way to tell Wall Street and bankers to 'shove it' by taking your money completely out of their rigged game, and limit their ability to increasingly leverage debt and steal your money by removing the capital foundation they use in the markets.

And with more and more people finally waking up out of the Wall Street programming that helped fuel their greed by conniving people to trust them with their money by giving it to them for decades under the guise of mutual funds, 401k's, and IRA's, how can you achieve nearly every financial need and desire you have through the purchasing and holding of gold?

You can do so with 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.

JP Morgan analyst admits people having more confidence in gold than in paper money

Feb. 11 was a watershed day for gold as the metal rose more than $60 at its peak to have its best single day in seven years, and the second highest single day move in history.  And according to many analysts, including one over at JP Morgan, this rise is not an anomaly, and is showing that people are finally losing confidence in paper currencies and rushing as fast as they can into gold.
There is a serious credit contraction underway, I think [Yellen] should acknowledge that. I think she has to look at the capital base being wiped off the banks in this downdraft and equities: that's not supposed to be happening right now. They're supposed to be bulletproof, and oh, by the way, gold at $1,200 an ounce, what does that tell you? It tells you that in a flight to quality, in a safe haven, people have more confidence in gold than in bank deposits or paper money. I think things have gotten out of control." - Zerohedge
This assessment is certainly true in both China and London where some bullion dealers experienced a rush into gold so great, people were lining out around the block just for the chance to purchase dwindling supplies.
London-based ATS Bullion added it had been inundated with orders for the past week. The firm has sold 4,000 gold bars and coins since February 1, a 40pc rise on the same period a year ago when it sold 1,500.  
"It's been crazy - it's been the best week since 2012. We've had people queuing round the block," said Michael Cooper of ATS Bullion, a family run firm that trades online and also from an outlet in the West End. - Telegraph
