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?

This could be the greatest time in history to own or invest in gold

For the most part, gold has not been seen as a pure investment over time because in the annals of history, it had been primarily owned and controlled by governments who used the metal as money in most societies.  In fact, people easily had access to gold, or through their gold backed paper currencies, and used it for purchasing things rather than as a wealth protector, or as an investment.

But when the world went completely off the gold standard in 1971, the monetary properties of gold changed.  And 45 years later, one analyst believes that right now could be the greatest time in history to own and invest in gold because the financial system has never been in a worse place than it is today, and the world is about to enter what will be known as the era of perpetual bonds.

I’ll dare to suggest this is the greatest time in history to own gold, and not because it is going “vastly higher”. It’s because gold now has more institutional respect than it has in decades. 
“Perpetual Bond Thunder” is the new gold price driver in play, and it has the potential to influence major markets for many years into the future. 
Japan may lead the world with a sizable launch of perpetual bonds that feature no interest rate and no maturity date. 
Ben Bernanke is probably the biggest money printer in the history of America. He is now working hard to convince Japan to lead the world with a huge launch of perpetual bonds. 
It’s a scheme to monetize the huge Japanese government deficit. 
Perpetual bonds are known as “perps” amongst institutional money managers. If they are used in the manner suggested by Ben Bernanke and other top bank economists, they have the potential to allow Western governments to continue to operate huge fiscal deficits, with the only cost of running those deficits being the “minor inconvenience” of destroying the purchasing power of most fiat currencies. - Stewart Thompson of Graceland via Silver Doctors

The last time the Fed raised rates, credit markets collapsed and the economy went into recession

As the entire global economy waits with baited breath for the Federal Reserve’s rate announcement in a few hours, analysts are looking backward to what occurred in 2006 when the central bank last raised rates.  And interesting enough, the results were not good for anyone.
Greenspan used rate hikes between 2004 until June of 2006 to qualify his ‘irrational exuberance’ mantra as the housing bubble would reach its peak just a few months later.  And with this tightening of credit and liquidity, over the next year markets would soar as asset purchases pushed prices to then all-time highs, only to then unveil the fragility of a market that had only succeeded on the back of monetary infusion.
Welcome to 1936-37 and 2007-08.

Torrent web portal offers $75000 in Bitcoin for Bernanke’s head

The Arab Spring provided a taste of what happens to sovereign leaders when the people reach a tipping point and have nothing left to lose.  But in the West, assassinations are most often done through killings for hire.  And whether assassinations are paid for by a Federally backed agency (CIA), or through the myriad of contract mercenaries like the former company Blackwater, more often than not, the ones ordering the killing are never touched in an investigation, or even along the money trail.
But perhaps there is now a third option, and that is the public funding of assassinations.  In a new discovery found on a ‘dark web’ portal in the digital world of Bit Torrent, anonymous donors can offer bitcoin in a sort of ‘crowdfunding’ mechanism to hire killers to take out politicians, world leaders, and even, the head of the Federal Reserve.

No Taper: Fed to continue to print money with no exit strategy available

On Sept. 18, the most anticipated decision in several years from the Federal Reserve took place, sealing the fate of the American dollar and the economy as a whole.  In an 11 minute speech, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke reported that the central bank would not taper their bond buying program as many on Wall Street anticipated, and instead will continue the $85 billion in money printing that has lasted for more than a year.

Economist Jim Willie calls for Bernanke's P.H.D. to be stripped for disproven doctoral thesis

Jim Willie: Bernanke should have his thesis and P.H.D. stripped

On Aug. 13, economist Jim Willie was a guest on the Trunews radio program.  During the hour long interview, Dr. Willie stated that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, who made his bones writing a doctoral thesis on how the central bank could have staved off the Great Depression through the pumping of massive liquidity into the system, should have both his thesis and P.H.D. stripped since his own polices as the head of the Federal Reserve have disproved his own paper.

Leading CEO of a home builder says rising rates are causing home buying decline

On July 25, the CEO of D.R. Horton addressed shareholders in an earnings conference call, and said explicitly that rising interest rates are draining the market of home buyers, and that the rapid rate rise is an unexpected shock to the industry.



  • *HOMEBUYERS 'SHOCKED AND DISTURBED' BY RATE JUMP, TOMNITZ SAYS
  • *D.R. HORTON CEO SAYS 'DISAPPOINTED' RATES ROSE SO 'VIOLENTLY'
  • *D.R. HORTON CEO SAYS TRAFFIC COUNT HAS SLOWED SINCE RATE RISE - Zerohedge

  • Rising interest rates is the biggest fear the Federal Reserve has had since their implementation of quantitative easing, and six years after bringing Fed rates down to almost 0, the market is now breaking upwards on its own. This uncontrolled rise in rates means that central bank polices have crossed over the technical line, where priming the monetary pump no longer provides the shelter against inflation and currency devaluation.

    Since the Housing Bubble and credit crisis of 2007/2008, the Fed has been primarily seeking to rebuild the housing and stock markets, under the illusion that wealth gained there would trickle down into all parts of the economy.  Unfortunately, when you use old tools and programs for new crises, the end result is what we have seen over the past six years... a temporary Band-Aid to stem a flood that is not only virulent, but has grown much worse because of the Doctors proscribed medicine.

    Crude oil scoffs at Fed as it zooms past $100 per barrel

    The major issue with central banks is that they are extremely myopic to the real economy.  They live in an ivory tower of data, and charts, stocks, and Wall Street, and have little comprehension regarding the lives of the 99%.

    So when Bernanke finally chose the path of least resistance, and fired up the printing presses on Sept. 13, it did not take long for crude oil to zoom part $100 per barrel, and push gas prices in many areas over $4 per gallon.

    Crude futures soaring by nearly 2% overnight to over $100 is what all those evil, evil speculators at work looks like. That, or the Federal Reserve's "all in" bubble reflation policy perhaps. No, it has to be the speculators: the margin hiker-in-chief said so. And for those who are surprised by Crude's move into triple digit territory, which in turn will send gas prices to the highest they have ever been for this time of year just in time for the election, wait until the reality of $150 oil is priced in, which as we explained yesterday, is the matched price for a $4 trillion Fed balance sheet. - Zerohedge

    $100 is not new, but it appears to be only the beginning.  With the Federal Reserves new monetary policy of bond buying and monetization being open ended, expect the price of crude oil, which is valued in U.S. dollars, to continue to rise.

    Those in the ivory tower known as the Federal Reserve have little concept of what inflation really means to those in 99% who must experience ever increasing prices in food, energy, rent, and items that don't fit into their paradigm of 'assets'.

    Bernanke and Fed launch QE4evr

    On Sept. 13, the markets waited with baited breath for Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke to usher in the Fed's response to save what little is left of the American economy.  In his announcement, Bernanke did not fail, as the central bank has chosen the path of eradicating all traces of a once great nation and empire.



  • *FED TO KEEP POLICY STIMULATIVE FOR `CONSIDERABLE TIME'


  • *FED WILL ADD TO PURCHASES IF LABOR MARKET DOESN'T IMPROVE


  • *FED DOES NOT SAY WHEN MBS PURCHASE PROGRAM TO END


  • *FED TO BUY $40B MBS MONTHLY, CONTINUE `OPERATION TWIST'


  • *FED TO BUY MBS, EXTENDS ZERO-RATE POLICY INTO 2015 - Zerohedge



  • Chart courtesy of Zerohedge

    What this means in laymans terms is not the introduction of QE3, but instead the implementation of QE4evr.

    Operation Twist never really ended for the Federal Reserve, which was the purchasing of $45 billion in MBS per month.  Now, the central bank will be buying an additional $40 billion, which equates to $1 trillion per year, and do so until unemployment falls to levels mandated by the Fed Charter (around 6%).

    Since the U.S. does not have an industrial and manufacturing base anymore, and buying mortgage bonds (MBS) when people can't afford to buy new or used homes on the market, means that there is only one truism that will result in the Fed's actions today.

    Inflation.  Lots of inflation.  Inflation forever.

    Los Angeles bank robbers channel their inner Fed Bernanke QE3

    In an interesting day of rubbernecking on American television, a station out of Los Angeles streamed live a police chance of bank robbers who got away with around $25000 from a Bank of America branch.

    However, these soon to be convicts seemed to have a change of heart on what to do with the money, and in preparation for tomorrow's Fed announcement, the robbers channeled their Ben Bernanke on Sept. 12, and started throwing the cash out the window like in one of Big Ben's helicopters.



    Once upon a time we thought that literally throwing cash out of rapidly moving objects was a privilege strictly reserved for Fed chairmen. Not any more. Moments ago, a car chase in South Los Angeles went horribly right, when two bank thieves who managed to find a Bank of America branch which actually had cash in it, and robbed it, proceeded to throw cash out of the moving car as it was being chased by a cohort of cops. Since the getaway car happened to be a Volvo, they naturally failed to get away, but not before they became local Robin Hood-type heroes to the massive gathering of gawkers all of whom would appear gainfully employed if only they were not just standing there, doing nothing, and hoping to steal the already stolen money in a major LA intersection at 11:30 am local time on a Wednesday. - Zerohedge
