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?

Three well respected economists along with Bank of America advocate gold as they see markets on precipice of collapse

It is one thing for economists outside the mainstream to see markets in extreme bubbles and on the precipice of another 2008 style crash, but when one of Wall Street's own starts publicly talking about the same thing then you know that the threat is quite legitimate.

And that is what happened on March 31 as new warnings from billionaire investor Jim Rogers, economist Martin Armstrong, motivational speaker and trainer Tony Robbins, and of all places Bank of America have several different experts all pointing towards the probability of a new financial crisis, and where each of them are advocating the best safe haven for your money to be that of gold.


From BofA:
Hartnett also presents "a nice Icarus stat": "should the S&P500 exceed 2540 in conjunction with a 3% yield on the 10-year Treasury bond then US stocks will reach an all-time high versus US bonds, exceeding the prior tech bubble peak reached in March 2000"
Still, all great - if abnormal and fake - bull markets and manias come to an end eventually, and Hartnett warns that what follows the final, Q2 "Icarus" rally will be far less enjoyable, because that's when the infamous "great fall" is set to take place. 
Great Fall” potentially comes in H2 as hubris, synchronized monetary tightening, EPS peak coincide; buy long-dated puts in anticipation; we believe best time to sell would likely be after a pop induced by a US tax reform bill (March Fund Managers Survey showed only 10% of institutions expect US tax reform passed before summer recess). 
And yes, the Fed will likely try to step in again with more rate cuts to prevent a crash, although this time it won't work at least according to Hartnett, because after the "Great Fall" comes the Long View, which Bank of America describes simply as: Manias, Panics, Crashes 
His conclusion is two fold.                
On one hand, "our Longest Pictures argue for a treacherous period of potential manias, panics or crashes as policy makers try to normalize policy."On the other, the response will be the same one we have said since day one will ultimately take place: runaway inflation as central banks literally throw everything at the next mega crash, or as Hartnett calls it, "further outperformance of inflation assets versus deflation assets." 
His best trade recommendation? 
"Buy gold." - Zerohedge
From Jim Rogers:
In his usual plain speaking, honest manner, Jim Rogers warned on Bloomberg TV that
"the Federal Reserve... has no clue what they are doing. They are going to ruin us all." Central banks have driven rates to all time record lows and in the process, debt has "sky-rocketed." 
Rogers slams the 'counterfactual' arguments that things would have been a lot worse if the Fed had not done all this, "propping up zombie banks and dead companies is not the way the world is supposed to work. ... It's been nine years and we have nothing to show for it [economically] except staggering amounts of debt." 
Rogers is pessimistic about the outlook for America and thinks that Donald Trump will see the US continue on the path to bankruptcy - a path set by Bush and Obama before him. 
He concludes the Bloomberg interview ominously by saying that "this is all going to end very, very, very badly." 
In recent years, Rogers has consistently said that he wants to own more gold and silver and will continue to accumulate the precious metals on any price dips.
From Martin Armstrong:
Armstrong is nervous about gold in the short term and thinks it could fall as low as $1,000 per ounce prior to surging to as high as $5,000 per ounce in the coming years.
From Tony Robbins:

Tony Robbins, performance coach and self help guru has warned that "The Crash is Coming." 
Robbins, who is focusing more on finances and wealth in recent years and in his latest book, 'Money: Master The Game', says plan now for what's to come. Things may be looking rosy on Wall Street as of late, but the crash will come. 
"We are in a really artificial situation. There is a new high, on average, every month. Feds around the world have been printing money," said Robbins in a tv interview. 
Robbins has long advocated owning gold as part of a diversified portfolio and has cited Kyle Bass, Marc Faber and more recently Ray Dalio as his financial gurus. In his recent book, Robbins cited Dalio and recommended an asset allocation strategy that involves a 7.5% allocation to gold.

Yale academic believes global economic crash is just months away

According to Yale’s Vikram Mansharamani, the global economic collapse is just months away despite the fact that mainstream pundits are discounting even a slight recession, much less a financial crash.  And at the heart of his analysis is the fact that the credit bubble that has been fueled by central banks over the past several years has finally reached a peak where nearly everything is artificially inflated, and the point of no return has been already crossed.


FINANCIAL bubbles across the globe are imploding and the problem is only set to get worse... Prices are falling around the world thanks to the collapse of China’s debt fuelled economic growth and this has triggered a succession of disastrous events that are starting to be realised, according to Vikram Mansharamani, an author and, lecturer at Yale University. 
Fears are growing that the world could face a financial crash of unprecedented levels and could even be just six months away. 
Bubbles created by the mountain of cheap money made available by low interest rates since the last financial crisis are now starting to burst, said Mr Mansharamani. 
Mr Mansharamani added: “We’ve got a bubble bursting, I would argue, in Australian housing markets — that is beginning to crack; South Africa — the whole economy; Canada — housing and the economy; Brazil. We can keep going on and on.” - London Express

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.

Group of 30 global central banks admit QE failed and did nothing for economies

It must be finally getting crunch time for the primary central banks around the world because on Oct. 10, the G30 group of global money printers admitted in a detailed report that the tens of trillions of dollars, euros, yen, and other currencies they have infused into the system has done absolutely nothing for local economies, and instead has accomplished what alternative economists stated would happen from the very beginning…
Create asset bubbles, un-payable debt, and assure that there would be no sustainable growth.
In addition to their ‘coming to Jesus’ moment, which may have occurred in September when the Fed found themselves unable to raise interest rates even a quarter point, the group of central banks are seeking to blame sovereign governments for failing to direct their printed monies where they would be most appropriate, and are deflecting their own failures elsewhere despite the fact that central banks like the Fed and ECB are outside of government controls to begin with.

Senile former Fed Chair Alan Greenspan claims bubbles everywhere but U.S. markets

Even though the former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Alan Greenspan is too old to cut the mustard, he seems these days desperate enough to still try to lick the jar.  In a guest appearance on CNBC today, the former head of the U.S. central bank began blaming most financial worries on monetary ‘bubbles’ in foreign markets, while at the same time refuting that the Fed created highs in the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P are not bubbles at all, but are simply strong economic indicators.
