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?

China progressing into 2017 to dominate the Bitcoin and gold markets

On Jan. 2, Bitcoin crossed over $1000 as the Chinese continue to rush into the crypto-currency as a means of bypassing capital controls on currency leaving the country.  And in an interesting and growing trend emerging from the second largest economy in the world, a new web bot forecast has the Chinese government actually capitulating to the power of Bitcoin and promoting its use within their borders, and along the newly emerging Silk Road.

Cliff High (Web bots): The new prediction sets we have are showing us swapping over to RMB as China takes over the emotional control if you will of the Bitcoin world, and alot of their rushing into that is fear of the currencies. 
Greg Hunter (USA Watchdog): They are fearful of the U.S. dollar? 
CH: Nope, the Chinese people... the China Pop (population)... and the China Pop is going to get really freaked out about the value of their own currency, and there is going to be more of a tendency and a rush into Bitcoin. 
Now at some point this year, China's official authorities are going to just give into that, and there's going to be a change to their official approach to this whole thing. 
GH: And they're going to say go ahead and use Bitcoin. 
CH: Boy if you read out report you are going to be staggerd... it's going to be more than that.  China is going to rush out, because of the way they do things... the Chinese authorities know their existence, their very lives depend on the health, wealth, and happiness of the people below them, and so someone is going to come up with an idea to extend digital currency... Bitcoin, and we have the language there, even to people who trade goats now. 
And the idea is, China, along with their Silk Road train from Beijing to Berlin, is going to extend out fiber optics and bring in over a billion people into the internet in the shortest possible time.  And at the same time they're going to spread out the Bitcoin ethos through there. - USA Watchdog
In addition to Bitcoin expansion within their borders and all along the Silk Road, China is progressing rapidly towards becoming the world's largest gold market, that will now include jewelry in their platform.

Status as one of the world’s biggest bullion importers, participation in the gold fix at the London exchange and a plan to establish a jewelry gold investment center in Shanghai has turned China into one of the leading players in the global gold market in 2016. - Sputnik News
As currencies and bonds around the world teeter on the precipice of another crash or outright collapse, the future of finance is rushing away from these fiat forms of currency and returning to an era of sound money.  And with supplies of gold and silver being quickly gobbled up by consumers all throughout the Far East, the trends are signalling very strongly that right now is beyond the time in which individuals can get their metals and Bitcoin to be prepared for the coming paradigm shift.

SDR's for trade between nations, gold for the rest of us when currencies collapse

It is inevitable that the monetary system the world has used over the past 43 years will not only come to an end, but all signs are warning that this end is very near.  Going back to 1988, one of the Establishment's primary propaganda publications issued a forecast of a new global currency replacing the dollar by 2018, and here in 2016 we have already seen the beginnings of that currency through the IMF's announcement to circulate the M SDR (Special Drawing Rights) under Chinese authority.

Image result for the economist world currency

This means of course that during the transition, all fiat currencies like the Dollar, Pound, Euro, and Yen will experience extreme devaluations, or in some cases like perhaps the Euro, outright elimination.

But how long until this actually takes place?

A month ago one of the chief architects of the Euro creation back in 1999 published an op-ed on how the currency was flawed, and that its days numbered thanks to the deteriorating confidence and value imposed upon it by the European Central Bank.  And as we know in Japan over the past 20 years, the UK in recent months, and through the dumping of dollars by foreigners against the current global reserve, the clock is ticking on whether nations can get together in time to agree upon a way for a global reset, or if greed will bring their inevitable downfall through some global financial crisis.

Right now the first or perhaps even primary model for the next global reserve currency already exists, and is being propagated in the markets and in trade.  But this currency, known as the SDR, will only be available for nations to trade with one another at a central bank or Ministry level, and this leaves the 99.99% of us dealing with the aftermath of our own money's devaluation.

Thus while the world banks and governments prepare for the SDR to save their financial systems, what remains for you and I are the physical forms of money that have been a part of economics from the beginning of civilization.

We’ll soon experience profound problems with the U.S. dollar. I expect to see inflation in some areas, deflation in others. On the world stage, we could see anything up to and including a full-fledged currency crisis. 
Collapse is a calamitous process that destroys wealth like a tsunami hitting a seacoast. 
We’ll see several stages of the collapse play out in any event, because central banks are out of room to steer monetary policy outside of a very narrow channel. 
The Fed didn’t raise interest rates in 2010-11, when it should have bitten down on the proverbial bullet. Now, as the world economy teeters on the edge of major breakdown, the Fed can’t cut rates to boost the economy. Even if the Fed’s traditional rate-cutting medicine worked — and it doesn’t always work — that bottle of economic snake oil is nearly empty. 
Aside from the Fed, other central banks around the world are in even worse shape. Many of them participated in the failed negative interest rate experiment. We can’t look to them for any help at all. 
Sauve qui peut! 
This will put increased importance on special drawing rights (SDRs), or world money, and gold as possible tools with which to truncate the next collapse. I expect that many nations will use SDRs as a method to protect themselves — certainly the U.S.
But if you’re not a country plugged into the central bank, what’s left for us mere mortals? Your best option is to use gold. - Daily Reckoning

As the new housing bubble gets ready to burst, gold will be the beneficiary as it was in 2007

The new housing bubble the Fed helped create through its policies of cheap money and stimulus is a bit different than the one that burst in 2007, but the consequences will be very similar.

From 2004-07, low interest rates and sub-prime lending fueled a housing bubble that engulfed buyers from nearly every level of the economic ladder.  From ninja loans (no income, no job) which helped families living below the poverty level to buy 'McMansions' costing over $600,000, to home builders racing to put up new communities by the thousands which didn't even have enough buyers to fill, the result was a complete collapse of the housing market, and spawned the Credit Crisis that nearly collapsed the global financial system.

However today's new housing bubble is quite different, but just as spectacular nonetheless.  Because instead of low income Americans being the buyers in the market like in 2004, today the majority of buyers are foreigners with billions of dollars to spend, and the willingness to purchase property no matter how overpriced it is.

And like in 2007, this bubble has suddenly hit the skids and is now bursting as areas such as the Hamptons, Aspen, Miami, Vancouver where even the rich are finding it impossible to sell in an environment of shrinking buyers.

Hamptons:
One month ago, we said that "it is not looking good for the US housing market", when in the latest red flag for the US luxury real estate market, we reported that sales in the Hamptons plunged by half and home prices fell sharply in the second quarter in the ultra-wealthy enclave, New York's favorite weekend haunt for the 1%-ers. 
Reuters blamed this on "stock market jitters earlier in the year" which  damped the appetite to buy, however one can also blame the halt of offshore money laundering, a slowing global economy, the collapse of the petrodollar, and the drastic drop in Wall Street bonuses. In short: a sudden loss of confidence that a greater fool may emerge just around the corner, which in turn has frozen buyer interest.
Aspen:
The statistics are stunning: single-family home sales in Aspen are down 62% in dollar volume through the first-half of the year. Sales of homes priced at $10 million or more — almost always paid for in cash — are down 60%. Last year, super-high-end transactions accounted for nearly a third of sales volume in Pitkin County. 
“The high-end buyer has disappeared,” said Tim Estin, an Aspen broker whose Estin Report analyzes the Aspen-Snowmass real estate market. 
"Aspen has never experienced such a sudden and precipitous drop in real estate sales," according to the post.
Miami:
Luxury condo sales in Miami have crashed 44%. 
According to the latest report by the Miami Association of Realtors, the local luxury housing market is just as bad, if not worse, than the Hamptons and Aspen. 
The latest figures out of Miami this week showed residential sales are down almost 21% from the same time last year. But as bad as this double-digit decline may seem, it pales in comparison to what’s happening at the high end of the market. 
A closer look at transactions for properties of $1 million or more in July shows just 73 single-family home sales, representing an annual decline of 31.8%, according to a new report by the Miami Association of Realtors. In the case of condos in the same price range, the number of closed sales fell by an even wider margin: 44.4%, to 45 transactions.
Vancouver, Canada:
Needless to say, while most Vancouverites had long been priced out of the domestic real etate bubble - and some say were hoping for the recent substantial pullback in prices, if not outright crash - the biggest losers from this sudden, dramatic collapse, were foreign buyers, mostly the Chinese, whose aggressive, "buy at any price" money laundering "purchase tactics" have been duly documented on this website for the past year. 
The result was swift: as Bloomberg reports, China’s top envoy in British Columbia slammed the Canadian province’s new 15% tax on foreign home buyers, questioning the justification behind the hastily imposed measure
"Why a 15 percent tax? Why now? Why this rate? What’s the purpose? Will it work?"
Liu Fei, China’s infuriated consul general in Vancouver, said in an interview with Bloomberg. "The issue is how to help young people afford housing," she added. "I’m not sure even a 50 percent tax would solve the problem."
Back in 2007, the beneficiary of the crashing housing bubble was of course gold and silver.  And the collapse of housing was the catalyst which sparked the crisis of confidence that took gold to its new all-time high in 2011.

Image result for gold price chart 2007 to 2011

2016 saw the year begin with a huge move in gold, only to use the summer months to consolidate in the $1320 - $1350 range.  And just as we saw the price begin its historic move upward in September and October of of 2007 when the housing bubble finally burst, so too will we see the metals follow the same course as confidence in the financial system will bring in even more buyers than a decade ago.

Quarterly sales of silver Canadian Maple Leafs hit new record

Investors of precious metals can thank the Fed’s jawboning, and the bullion bank’s manipulation of both gold and silver, to allow for perhaps the greatest bargain ever in a discounted price measured for inflation.  And because of this, the Canadian Mint reported on June 7 that more silver Maple Leaf coins were sold in the first quarter than at any time in their history.
Sales of Canadian bullion hit a new record for Q1 of 2016 by passing out 10.6 million ounces to buyers through the first three months of the year.

One of the world's oldest banks sees gold price reaching all-time highs within two years

With the uncertainty of Britain's future role in the European Union, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's dire warning of a coming financial calamity, one of the world's oldest banks is diversifying itself into gold, and predicts the price will climb 40% or more within the next two years.

Berenberg Bank was established back in 1590, and still remains relevant as it holds 40 billion in assets under management.

The smart money, large institutional money, who understands diversification and gold’s function as a store of value continues to diversify into gold. There is an awareness of gold’s benefit as a hedging instrument and safe haven asset but also an awareness that the outlook for prices at these still depressed levels is very positive. 
This is seen in the view of Berenberg, which is in the fifth century of its existence and one of the oldest owner managed banks in the world, who see gold returning to  2012 levels at $1,900/oz per ounce. 
The less informed money continues not to appreciate the risks that are again building in the system. Risk appetite remains high and there is a distinct lack of awareness regarding how risks, such as BREXIT, may impact financial markets and traditional assets such as stocks, bonds, property and indeed deposits. - Zerohedge
Berenberg's entry into the gold markets follows a string of hedge fund managers as well as central banks who have accumulating gold at near record levels ever since the end of 2015.

As gold replaces the dollar as the world's new safe haven, the U.S. currency's chances of collapse are skyrocketing

Since the beginning of the year there has been not just a reversal in market sentiment for gold and silver, but a complete sea change in what is the right safe haven to move one's assets into.  Prior to January of 2016, the U.S. dollar was by far the currency in which central banks and foreigners put their money to protect against their own monetary policies of devaluation.  But as gold broke through its five year Bear market technicals in January, the dichotomy between the rise of the precious metal and the decline of the dollar has become much more profound.

Gold Chart

Dollar Chart

And in an interview today with esteemed statistician John Williams, the creator of ShadowStats.com said that not only are foreigners dumping their dollars in increasing levels, but the direction of this trend has the potential to collapse the dollar as trillions in currency holdings are being sent back by nations who no longer have confidence in the global reserve.
We have started to see selling pressure on the dollar.  It has been inching lower.  It’s down year to year now. . . . The selling is going to intensify, not only with large central banks, but with corporations that will be beginning to dump their Treasury holdings. . . . Nobody wants to be the last one out the door when you have a panic like this.  It’s not a panic yet, but the potential certainly is there.” 
Williams also says, “The dollar will blow up, and when I say blow up, it will collapse. There will be panic selling of the dollar, and that will intensify the inflation.  The problem is they don’t have a way of avoiding it.  If they could somehow get the economy back on track, they would have some room to work, I think, but the economy has never recovered.  That’s being seen now in these revisions.  At the end of this week, we are going to see bench mark revisions to retail sales. . . . So, you are going to see some downside revisions to the retail sales.  You already have it with industrial production, and now you are going to have it with retail sales.  We are very close to turning negative with the first quarter GDP . . . We are in a recession now, and they would be inclined to call it that once they get a contracting GDP, and everything else is beginning to show that. . . . You are going to see a formal recession declaration not too far down the road.  It hasn’t happened yet, but it will.” - USA Watchdog

The battle for gold acquisition is in high gear with individuals, elites, and central banks buying at record levels

Earlier today, SRS Rocco published an article on how gold bullion sales for April at the U.S. Mint are up 300% from the same month just a year ago, and this is just in the first three weeks of the month.

The telltale sign that something isn't right in the financial industry is a surge in Gold Eagle sales.  Last year, total Gold Eagle sales for April equaled 29,500 oz.  However, in just the first three weeks of April this year, Gold Eagle sales have reached 87,500.  This is three times last years figures and we still have another week remaining in the month:
But purchases from the U.S. Mint don't tell the whole story.  According to analyst and economist Jim Rickards this week, central banks as well as elites are purchasing their own gold stashes at record levels, in preparation for the fourth potential collapse of the global financial system in the past 100 years.
Countries are also acquiring gold in advance of a collapse of the international monetary system. The system has collapsed three times in the past century. Each time, major financial powers came together to write new rules. 
This happened at Genoa in 1922, Bretton Woods in 1944, and the Smithsonian Institution in 1971.  The international monetary system has a shelf life of about 30 years. 
It has been 30 years since the Louvre Accord (an upgrade to the Smithsonian Agreement). This does not mean the system will collapse tomorrow, but no one should be surprised if it does. When the financial powers next convene to reform the system, there will be no appetite for the dollar’s exorbitant privilege. 
The Chinese yuan and Russia ruble are not true reserve currencies. The only feasible benchmarks for a new system are the IMF’s world money, called special drawing rights, and gold. 
Critics claim there is not enough gold to support the financial system. That’s nonsense. There is always enough gold, it’s just a matter of price. 
Based on the M1 money supplies of China, the eurozone, and the US, and with 40pc gold backing, the implied non-deflationary price of gold is $10,000 per ounce. 
At that price, a stable gold-backed monetary system could be sustained.  When it comes to monetary elites, watch what they do, not what they say. 
While elites disparage gold at every opportunity, they are buying it, hoarding it, and preparing for the day when one’s gold determines one’s seat at the table of systemic reform. 
It’s past time to claim your seat with an asset allocation to physical gold. - Zerohedge

Financial events of this last week may be leading to devaluation or even collapse of dollar within weeks

Earlier this week, there were two major financial events which occurred with little fanfare by the mainstream media, but could be leading to profound consequences for the dollar and the future of the global reserve currency. On April 15, long time Wall Street metal and bond analyst Rob Kirby forecast in an interview on USA Watchdog that the revelations by Deutsche Bank of gold and silver manipulations are just the tip of the iceberg, and that major devaluations or even a crash of the dollar could be coming as quickly as the next few weeks.


In his interview with Greg Hunter, Rob Kirby expressed the point that these manipulations go far beyond simply domestic and foreign banks participating in the de-frauding of the gold and silver markets, and that if you follow the money, they lead directly to the U.S. Treasury Department and Federal Reserve. And this alone could explain the sudden 'emergency' meeting that took place on Tuesday when Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen called for a meeting with President Obama and Vice President Biden at the White House.

German banking association recommending banks stockpile cash for loans to stimulate economy

On March 4, the Bavarian Banking Association recommended to its member banks that they take out all their deposits being held with the European Central Bank (ECB) and stockpile the cash for use as loans in order to stimulate the economy.  This recommendation comes as the ECB prepares for negative interest rates, and the charging of interest to banks under their authority for sequestering cash in their facility.
Like with the Federal Reserve in the U.S., ever since the ECB began its own form of quantitative easing and zero interest rates, banks within the Eurozone have simply borrowed cheap money from the central bank and either bought government bonds or parked it with the ECB where they received a modicum of interest.  This has resulted in a sharp slowdown in the velocity of money, and a massive decrease in lending to businesses and the general economy.

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

Former Wall Street insider and head of the OMB calls out bank ceo’s as liars and untrustworthy

Almost eight years ago, the former CEO of Bear Stearns appeared on CNBC to say that they were fully capitalized, and had $26 billion in liquidity.  Three days later, the 85 year old institution was gone forever.
Subsequently, other long-standing banks would also fail during that tumultuous year, with executives and business news analysts lying to investors who lost everything by not getting out while their shares were still available to be traded.
Fast forward to 2016.
Germany’s largest financial institution Deutsche Bank stands on the cusp of the next ‘Lehman Moment’, and once again members of the bank, along with business analysts, are downplaying their straits as being of ‘little note’.

Peter Schiff: Recession and NIRP in the cards for U.S. before November election

What should make everyone feel differently this time about the state of the economy is how custom and tradition were thrown out the window back in December when the Federal Reserve intervened in the financial system within 12 months of a presidential election.  These actions are almost unheard of because the central bank always feared being labeled a political entity since their moves would in the end benefit one political party over another.
Yet when the Fed chose to raise interest rates in December of 2015 despite the economy being in deflation, it triggered a wake up call for those asking the tough questions on just how sure footed the economic situation in the U.S., and the world in fact, really is.
And for a man who predicted the bursting of the housing bubble as far back as 2006, these questions come with some answers.

Negative interest rates, free money... central banks are showing by their new policies that we are near the end

On Friday the Bank of Japan entered into the deep shark infested waters of negative interest rates (NIRP), signalling that they have no other option but to force people to spend their savings or lose it to fee based confiscation.  And for those that think Japan is simply a lone wolf in the global economy, negative interest rates have already emerged in several European countries desperate for inflation.

But NIRP is not the only scheme being concocted by governments and banks to force people to spend their money instead of saving it.  In Switzerland on Jan. 29, a referendum was issued for the people to vote on whether their government should outright give each adult $1700 Euros and each family the equivalent of $2500.00 to stimulate growth and inflation in the midst of an emerging meltdown.

And like the use of price controls in 3rd world banana republics, the end result of giving out free money based on increased debt is price inflation to the point where eventually the entire system will collapse upon itself.

Got Karatbars? Whether the big guys or the common man, the run on gold and silver is happening

Many of us have heard about the shortages going on in the physical gold and silver markets as Mints, brokers, and local dealers all attest to the fact that one or many entities are buying the metals in record numbers.  In fact, a new chart out for the beginning of 2016 shows that not only is this year turning out to be a rush to safety for people in precious metals, but it also appears likely that major banks and wealthy buyers are behind the run on gold.
First-day sales of American Eagle gold bullion coins were also strong at 60,000 ounces, compared with the 81,000 ounces that sold in the entire month of January 2015, mint data showed. 
On Monday, spot gold prices traded just below $1,100 an ounce, which is up about 5 percent from the near six-year-low of $1,045.85 reached in early December. - Reuters



For most outsiders who trade or hold paper assets in the U.S. markets, realizing that there is a run ongoing for the precious metals is difficult because the mainstream media has put on a full court press to downplay these assets, and depressed prices have functioned as a psychological deterrent for those who only study price action and surface data.  But the bottom line is that gold and silver are the only true protections in an environment of devaluing currencies, which has been ongoing from continent to continent and market to market since the start of global QE in 2011.

You cannot rely upon 'trusted' mainstream analysts or experts to inform you of when an event such as a currency or market collapse will take place, as few are not only unwilling to see the writing on the wall, but even fewer accept that it is possible (See The Big Short and Fed Chairman Janet Yellen's time as head of the San Francisco Fed).
While Yellen served as the regional bank chair for San Francisco she voted along with other members of the Fed to maintain low mortgage interest rates, which were one main contributing factors to the housing bubble. 
For a while, it appeared this was stimulating the region’s economy by creating construction jobs and reducing unemployment. But some feared serious problems once the bubble burst — a fear Yellen did not share. 
On the eve of the financial crisis in 2007, she reassured the public that the U.S. economy was safe from the fall of the housing market, which at that point had already been in decline for six months. - Daily Caller

Unlike in 2007-2008 however, people cannot say they have not been warned of what is coming as the internet has made it possible to provide vital information and analysis free to anyone looking for direction beyond the mainstream agenda of protecting the status quo.  And just as Europe is realizing today that not only are their banking systems insolvent once again, but that depositors will be the ones rather than the government to bail out these destructive speculators, so too are large portions of people in the East preparing themselves for a monetary power vacuum as the world moves away from the dollar, and into a monetary system that more than likely will be backed by gold in some capacity.

So if as we are seeing in the stock markets that equities and other paper assets are screaming for a sharp decline, and multiple large banks are even telling their clients to sell everything, what possible safe haven is there for you to move your money out of a collapsing system and into something that has stood the test of time through every crisis in financial history?

The best way to do this 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.

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?

To learn more about Karatbars, you can contact the individual who sent you this article, and click on their referral link to open a free account and begin buying, or building your own gold savings or business with the company of the future.

Global financial system has two options: Collapse, or Jubilee

Back in 2013, Dr. Jim Willie reported on a secret treaty that was signed by more than 120 nations to bring about a currency reset, and the return of a gold backed monetary system.  However, this treaty was broken in early 2014 by none other than the United States when they financed the Kiev coup as a way to stave off their losing control over the world's reserve currency.

Following this event, China began to accelerate the means to end dollar hegemony by duplicating nearly all Western financial constructs through entities like the AIIB, the BRICS Bank, the Shanghai Gold Exchange, CIPS (Chinese SWIFT), free trade zones, and the new Silk Road.



Yet since nations were not allowed to facilitate this reset, economic and monetary destruction has simply increased, and as we see through the first week of 2016, the crossroads has now come upon the world which has a choice on what their futures will bring.

They can either choose collapse, or follow through with their original 2013 intention and declare a debt Jubilee.

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.

Got Karatbars? Jim Willie forecasts when oil falls below $30, gold will start its move skyward

2015 has been the year of the failed forecasts when it comes to gold prices and other commodities.  This is in part due to the global slowdown in economic activity that has seen deflation rear its head in places stretching from the U.S. all the way to China.

But the key thing that most economists miss is that at the foundation of the global monetary system, it is not the dollar, nor the euro, nor even the Yuan that controls economic direction, but oil and oil prices.

And as we have seen over nearly the entire second half of 2015, oil prices have fallen to the point where they threaten to go well below $40 per barrel, and this is despite nation states rushing to war in the Middle East to fight against ISIS.  But according to a new forecast by Dr. Jim Willie of the Hat Trick Newsletter, when oil prices fall below $30 per barrel, it will trigger a black swan throughout the globe and cause gold to begin rising in price at a tremendous rate.
Jim Willie:  The emerging market nations are caught in a squeeze.  They're typically commodity sellers.  They sell metals, they sell oil, they sell gas... they sell alot of different commodities, and all the commodity prices are down.  If you take a look at the last 18 months, it's a 40% decline in income to the emerging market nations, who's economies are all upset down, screwed up, and they can't pay on their debt. 
Now they're seeing the dollar go up, their own currency go down... 25% for arguments sake.  So, an emerging market nation has 25% less income, a recession that's fierce, and suddenly their debt load just went up 20 to 25, and maybe 30%. 
It's called debt default.  Income down, debts up and they are delaying on their default announcements because the Western banks are giving them extensions, but it's going to end real soon. 
That's the emerging market problems that are going to hit the Western banks the same time their oil hedges and oil portfolio's cause them losses.  The result will be that the Fed will be in a nightmare scenario, when at the same time lots of country's are dumping their treasuries... so the Fed is going to have a triple whammy. 
Wall Street energy losses, Wall Street emerging market losses and global central banks dumping their treasuries... this is I think QE will fail, and the dollar will have to be gotten rid of as a global reserve currency. 
All these problems, and the oil price is going to be the critical pinprick.  And as the oil price goes further down, it might even trigger some of the defaults.  My source just sent a message yesterday, saying we're going to see sub-$30 oil price.  It's going to cause enormous problems, and in this sequence, it will bring about conditions for installing the gold standard, and seeing the price zoom. - TF Metals Report Interview, Nov. 25


Within two weeks, the Federal Reserve is going to have to make one of its most important decisions in its history, and in either situation (Raising rates or keeping them at zero), the consequences will be dire for those who own stocks, bonds, and other paper assets in their portfolios.  But as Dr. Willie notated, it is not interest rates that will bring about the next collapse, but rejection of the dollar and deflation in the oil spectrum.

Emerging market nations are already preparing for a change in the petro-dollar system, and are doing so by buying and accumulating gold at a record pace.  In fact, China just bought even more gold last month to go along with their estimated 20,000 tons purchased over the past few years.

So if much of the world is rushing headlong towards a return to the gold standard, and the mountain of global debt is finally reached the point of collapse, how can you prepare yourselves, your family, and your wealth to not only survive the coming changes, but to be prepared to come out ahead?

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, 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?

Corporate borrowing and stock buybacks reach the point of diminishing returns

Over the past two years, corporations in the U.S. have been manipulating their EPS (Earnings per share) by focusing on the number of share’s side of the equation, rather than increasing sales and revenue.  And while the new normal on Wall Street has been to exceed analyst’s estimated earnings per share, more often than not they have failed in beating Wall Street’s quarterly forecasts for overall earnings.
However, like the Federal Reserve finally reaching their own point of diminishing returns, where it now takes approximately $14 in newly printed dollars to create $1 of real GDP, the consequences for corporations borrowing extensively to buy back their own stock has now reached the point where default, bankruptcy, or even worse, a corporate takeover is a real possibility for a growing number of companies.

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

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

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

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

The answer lies in Karatbars.




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

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

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



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