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?

India's next step in war on cash is confiscation of physical assets like gold, silver, and real estate

In December India's Prime Minister implemented a new program to both eliminate high currency denominations, and to go after consumers who use cash outside their banking system.  This of course led to financial turmoil in a nation that conducts 98% of of its transactions in cash, and where less than 36% of the population has a bank account.

In response to the banning of certain denominations of currency, many Indians rushed into exchanging their cash for physical assets such as gold, jewelry, and even silver, and according to India's Finance Minister on Dec. 30, this is the next thing the government will go after now that physical Rupees have been limited in their economy.

As the government takes stock of the black money post demonetisation, its mulling the next step now. The focus is set to be on tracking down 'black wealth' or the illegal money pumped in real estate, gold and silver. 
Minister of State for Finance Santosh Gangwar while speaking to India Today disclosed that noose will tighten around tax evasion routes in physical assets. 
"We are doing crackdown on banks as we are getting information. Black money has a face, people can pump it in real estate, buy gold or silver. We will be stopping it," Gangwar said. 
Already, the government has amended the benami property act to detect the money laundering the real estate. Benami Transaction (Prohitibion) Amendment Act 2016 that came into effect on November 1. It aims at checking illegal money parked by tax evaders in property that is registered under multiple owners. 
"When PM was campaigning for Lok Sabha he had black money on the agenda, that's what he has delivered now and we will take it further," the minister added. 
Currently PAN card is required for selling gold, silver and jewellery over Rs 2 lakh. Since demonetisation, I-T sleuths have been keeping a hawk eye vigil at jewellers and bullion traders to track fake 'gold sale' for routing denotified currency. - India Today
The Indian government labels 'black wealth' as any asset or transaction that is done outside the banking system, and outside the government's ability to track and tax the exchange.

India won't be the only country in the coming days to usher in severe capital controls that restrict the ownership of cash and gold, or allow individuals to transact outside the nation's financial system, as just last week the EU began construction of new restrictions regarding the purchase of assets like gold from outside the Eurozone.

As the world rushes headlong into new currency, debt, and insolvency crises, governments will continue to crack down on the people's ability to choose whether they want to function in their collapsing systems.  And with so many options available now such as Bitcoin, Paypal, Goldmoney, Karatbars, etc... to both store your wealth and transact outside of banks, the coming year may see an even greater acceleration of capital controls by government's as they strive to protect their own dying platforms at the expense of the people and their money.

Europe now joins the war on gold as they propose confiscation from anyone entering the EU who 'might' be a terrorist

First it was India, who began the war on cash and gold by using the spurious reasons of trying to halt black market transactions.  Then they were followed next by China, who has put in place laws to limit the taking out of gold from the mainland to protect against capital flight.

Now the European Union is getting into the mix as they are proposing new laws which would allow for the confiscation of both cash and gold from anyone entering into the EU whom they deem to be a 'terrorist'.

Image result for gold confiscation
The European Commission is proposing a tightening of controls over cash and precious metals transfers from outside the EU under the guise of shutting down one route for funding of militant attacks on the continent, following the Berlin Christmas attack. 
China has already begun de facto gold import restrictions, and as Jayant Bhandari detailed previously, India is experiencing a continuation of new social engineering notifications, each sabotaging wealth-creation, confiscating people’s wealth, and tyrannizing those who refuse to be a part of the herd, in the process destroying the very backbone of the economy and civilization. There are clear signs that in a very convoluted way, possession of gold for investment purposes will be made illegal. Expect capital controls to follow. 
These new proposals are part of an EU "action plan against terrorist financing" unveiled after the bombings and shootings in Paris in November 2015.
Under the new proposals, customs officials in European Union states can step up checks on cash and prepaid payment cards sent by post or in freight shipments. 
Authorities will also be able to seize cash or precious metals carried by suspect individuals entering the EU. 
People carrying more than 10,000 euros (8,413.56 pounds) in cash already have to declare this at customs when entering the EU. The new rules would allow authorities to seize money below that threshold "where there are suspicions of criminal activity," the EU executive commission said in a note. 
The plan complements Commission proposals after the Paris attacks to tighten controls on virtual currencies such as bitcoin, and prepaid cards, which French authorities said were used to fund the bombings. 
EU states backed these proposals on Tuesday. Under the deal, which still needs European Parliament approval, holders of prepaid cards would have to show some form of identity when they make payments of 150 euros or more. 
But it gets better... 
The Commission is also proposing common rules for the 28 EU countries on freezing "terrorists' financial resources" and on confiscating assets even from those thought to be connected to criminals. - Zerohedge
The real reasons behind the sudden shift from the EU to restrict money coming into the Eurozone with either cash or gold is because they want to ween people off of using physical money, and/or protecting themselves by keeping their wealth outside the banking system.  Because all one has to do is look at recent history where European banks are not only taking part in helping to launder money for the drug cartels and terrorists, but the government's themselves know about these activities and do nothing to stop it.

Gold spread between London and Shanghai now $36 as premiums in India and China reach 50% over price

The gold price spread between the London paper markets and the Shanghai physical markets continues to climb as the divergence between China's PM fix and London's AM fix reached $36 on Dec. 13.

Shanghai Gold Fix

London Gold Fix

Yet these prices are not truly indicative of what is really going on in the physical markets since the bullion banks crushed down the spot price following the election of Donald Trump back on Nov. 8.  This is because geo-political and economic events in both India and China have caused demand to surge immensely over the past month, and dealers and jewelers in both countries are incorporating premiums sometimes as high as 50% over the designated price.

Last week saw news of reported gold import curbs in China (and looming capital controls) has sent gold premiums in China near three-year highs amid limited supply of the precious metal (as Reuters reports)... 
The import curbs may be part of China's efforts to limit outflows of the yuan after the currency's slide to its weakest in more than eight years, traders say. China allows only 15 banks to import gold, including three foreign lenders. 
"There is severe restriction on the banks' quota to import gold into China. Each one of them have to justify their need," a Hong Kong-based banker said. 
Gold was sold in China at about $24 an ounce above the international spot benchmark this week. Premiums went as high as $30 last week, the most since January 2014, according to Thomson Reuters data. - Zerohedge
Over in India the shortages and demand are much more extreme, with premiums skyrocketing as government officials threaten consumers and dealers with cuts to imports, and even outright confiscation.
In November the country's gold imports jumped to around 100 tonnes, the highest in 11 months. 
Jewellers and bullion dealers are deferring purchases and gold imports in December could fall to 30 tonnes, down from 107 tones in the same month a year ago, said a Mumbai-based dealer. 
It is estimated that one-third of India's annual demand of around 800 tonnes is paid for in "black money" - the local term for untaxed funds held in cash by citizens that do not appear in any official accounts. 
And this has sparked a surge in physical demand (amid limited supply concerns)... (as Reuters reports) 
There have also been reports of people rushing to buy gold by paying as much as a 50 percent premium above official prices using their unaccounted money to skirt the note ban.

If the rich aren't willing to store their gold in banks, then why should you trust them either?

Following the 2008 financial crisis the United States began a form a capital controls to try to keep individuals, businesses, and trusts from moving their wealth offshore.  And one of their primary controls is through a law known as FATCA, which gave the IRS a modicum of authority backed by SWIFT to find out all personal accounts and information held in foreign banks by American citizens.

But as we saw in the Panama Papers scandal earlier this year, what is meant as restrictions for 'little people' is barely a bump in the road for the elite and super wealthy who have access to alternatives that the 99% do not.  And one of these alternatives is the ability to offshore their wealth into special private vaults that are outside the touch of the U.S. government, and which may hold thousands of tons of gold outside the banking system.

For decades, Switzerland had a reputation for bank secrecy that made it the most sought after tax haven for billionaires from around the globe.  But, after more than 80 years of secrecy, a series of bilateral agreements with countries around the world, including America’s Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), have forced the private-banking industry in Switzerland to embrace an entirely new era of transparency that requires a full exchange of tax-relevant information with more than a hundred countries. 
Which, as Bloomberg points out, has been a huge boon for Swiss operators of private vaults which are not subject to the same transparency and reporting requirements as banks.  In fact, these super-secret, privately operated storage facilities buried around the Swiss Alps can basically store anything from anybody because they're not even required to report suspicious activity to Switzerland's Money Laundering Reporting Office.  
“There is growth in gold,” Wipfli says. “Since 2008 there has been a real interest in alternatives to bank deposits.” The company explicitly taps into that demand. Swiss Data Safe “is independent from the banking system and any other organization or interest group,” according to a PowerPoint presentation Wipfli shows clients. The company and its anonymous rival aren’t regulated by the Swiss financial-services regulator Finma. 
Nor do such companies have to report suspicious activity to Switzerland’s Money Laundering Reporting Office.In the past, submissions to the agency have led the Swiss attorney general to open investigations into corruption at FIFA, the global soccer body, and banking ties to Brazil’s Petrobras bribery scandal. 
Moreover, American citizens aren’t required under FATCA to declare gold stored outside of financial institutions either.  So perhaps it's no surprise that, according to the Swiss defense department, of the roughly 1,000 former military bunkers still in existence across Switzerland, several hundred of them have been sold to private individuals who are now operating them as private storage sites for the gold stash of the world's wealthiest of billionaires. - Zerohedge
The elites know that they cannot trust holding their wealth in a bank, and often go to extraordinary lengths to ensure it remains outside the hands of governments, regulators, and law enforcement.  So if the rich do not trust the banks to hold their money and assets, then why should you?

The secret circle that is the OSS, CIA, Treasury Department, and Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF) started with gold confiscation

You don't have to be a conspiratorial theorist to have heard of black budgets, secret agreements (like Iran-Contra), or even Operation Paperclip, which was organized by the forerunners of the CIA to bring in 100's of Nazi scientists to work for the U.S. government.  But what most people have never heard of is the organization behind it all, and how it all got started through the proceeds of the government's confiscation of your gold back in 1933.

In 2011, a descendant from one of the bankers who was at Jekyll Island (Frank Vanderlip) put together a video series that explains in precise detail the creation of the one of the most secret and powerful institutions in the world, and how it has been used to manipulate economies, markets, and governments for the past 83 years.  And why it is even today controlling the strings of finance with an estimated $40 trillion dollar fund that is controlled directly out of the U.S. Treasury.

Got Karatbars? Don't ever fall for government proposed programs to get your gold

With Russia entering into the conflicts of the Middle East over the past six month, and nations waking up to the real reasons behind regime overthrows in Libya, Syria, and the Ukraine, the Western banking system is attempting new schemes to try to separate gold from the people as currencies devalue to the point for the need of new monetary policies.

Two such schemes that we have mentioned before at The Daily Economist involved the nations of Turkey and India, with both offering interest bearing funds to those who allow the government or the banks to store their gold in their possession.  But as billionaire metals manager Eric Sprott's publication intoned on Jan. 5, these seemingly 'innocuous' programs are really all about using paper money as an enticement to grab your gold and funnel it upwards where the elite are buying it en masse in preparation for what is coming.


In previous commentaries , readers were warned that Western bankers were once again targeting the gold market of India with more of their fiendish plans. This time, they convinced (bribed?) India’s new, corrupt government - the Modi regime - into orchestrating a scheme to steal the gold from its own people. 
The nexus of this scam was what was announced as “the gold deposit scheme.” Even the Conspirators themselves were unable to come up with a name to make this naked fraud sound legitimate. The fraud itself is simple, indeed utterly simplistic. Indians “deposit” their gold into the clutches of their thieving government and are paid (paper) “interest” on those deposits. The fact that this was a naked fraud was immediately apparent. As the bankers tell us all the time, “gold generates no income.” How could India’s government pay the interest on the gold coins/bars/jewelry sitting in its vault supposedly held in trust for its depositors? There was no immediate answer to that question, because there could be no (legitimate) answer to the question. Indeed, in legitimate bullion storage arrangements, depositors pay a fee to have their bullion safely stored for them, because while the gold generates no income, the costs of storing such gold are significantly greater than zero. 
Finally, reluctantly, the Conspirators made explicit what was already totally obvious: The deposited gold will be auctioned off from time to time to meet domestic demand for jewellery and coins. [emphasis mine] The scam was now completely exposed. 
a) Indians “deposit” their gold. 
b) Indians receive (paper) “interest” on their gold while their deposited gold is sold off. 
c) Indians end up with the paper interest - and no gold. 
d) India’s jewellers and coin-makers then sell the gold they purchased at these auctions back to the same Chumps who originally deposited that gold. - Sprott Money
Earlier we mentioned the country's of Libya, Syria, and Ukraine as being tied to Western gold grabs,  and all one has to do is look at the new rules, policies, and actions that were done by both the U.S. and the City of London to restrict one country from ever retrieving their gold stored in Western vaults, and in the case of Ukraine, outright steal it under the cover of night.


In reality all assets are valuable, and can earn you interest, dividends, or commissions if you understand how both math, and the power of compounding can take assets you own and increase them by following proper methods and equations.  In the case of a business model attributed to the Karatbars company, using the power of duplication can feasibly make it so you can earn enough from referrals in a very short amount of time where you can accumulate gold simply out of commissions made from your referrals, and not from dollars given out of your pocket.  This is a way of using time and labor to earn wealth instead of a market model where you use money in an attempt to do the same.

And there is no fear of government confiscation, or losing your gold to any 'schemes' that sounds good on the surface like the one being offered in India.

As the world rushes towards its next major recession, and banks and governments relegate themselves to programs that co-opt people's wealth into the hands of a select few, there is an alternative that can not only protect your current wealth in the world's most stable form of money, but also allow you to increase it through the simple fruits of your labor, and mathematical certainties.

And that alternative 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?

Ontario becomes ground zero for citizens being asked to pay for the debts of their government

$160,000.  That is how much each American ‘virtually’ owes bondholders to cover the government’s nearly $19 trillion in national debt.  And while our taxes are the primary collateral which allows Uncle Sam to borrow from a privately owned central bank, is there a chance sometime in the future where the government may use force, coercion, or even confiscation to pay these obligations that neither you nor I volunteered for?
US-Public-Debt-per-Taxpayer-Apr-2015
The answer to that may be coming sooner than we think, as our neighbor to the North, and in particular the City of Ontario, Canada, is so deep in debt that they are now asking their own people to voluntarily donate monies outside of proscribed taxation to pay on the city’s debt before insolvency bring it crashing down.

Got Karatbars? The time has arrived where governments need your money to stay solvent

There are fewer and fewer people alive today who remember President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's bank holiday and subsequent confiscation of gold under Executive Order 6102 back in 1933, and even fewer who understand what individual control over their own money really means.  In fact, despite the Credit Crisis that nearly collapsed the Western banking system and brought about the concept of depositor bail-ins just seven years ago, most Americans and Europeans still trust the system and their government to hold their bank accounts, retirement accounts, and paper assets sacrosanct.


But history has shown that greed is a very powerful elixir, and very few if any institutions can withstand the corruption it brings over the course of time.  And while the vast majority of people find it difficult to believe that the government would ever pass a law to take their money held in a bank, broker, or retirement account, one such government is suddenly becoming ground zero for just that potential action.

Over the Christmas holiday, data points tied to a collapsing housing bubble and a destruction in Canada's oil industry has led the city of Ontario to publicly beg its citizens to help bailout the government as the municipality finds itself on the cusp of bankruptcy, and without hope of paying off $300 billion worth of debt it has accumulated.
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is asking that you consider giving your money to the Ontario government as well. 
For a mere $21,000 for every man, woman and child in the province, Ontario could be debt free. 
No, this is not some kind of holiday joke about the Grinch who stole Christmas.
And, no, voluntarily donating to the government isn’t in lieu of paying taxes. 
It is in addition to them. 
Canada’s largest province has asked its taxpayers to donate their hard-earned money to the cause of bailing out the much indebted provincial government. 
On top of paying among the highest taxes in North America, and coping with skyrocketing hydro prices — hikes directly caused by the decisions made by this Liberal administration and the previous one — the Wynne government wants more. 
Treasury Board Chair Deb Matthews made the bold request last week, and specifically asked folks to donate their tax return rebate to help pay off the provincial debt. - Toronto Sun
Fast forward to the United States.



Following the 2008 Credit Crash and subsequent Great Recession, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi proposed a bill that would have nationalized all 401K's, IRA's, and pension accounts under government control to help subsidize the then $14 trillion in national debt.  This bill never made it to the House floor, but since them the debt has risen to over $19 trillion and the same government has instituted two other schemes such as President Obama's MyRA program, and the Treasury Secretary's move of public pensions into U.S. Treasury debt that is as un-payable as Ontario's debt appears to be.

(Just read Secretary Lew's words during the last debt ceiling debate where Social Security would be un-payable without allowing the government the power to borrow more money)


The overall point is that the world is finally finding itself forced to pay the piper after years of irresponsibility and unsound financial practices that place global debt at a whopping $230 trillion, or
300% over the world's annual GDP.  And if anyone is wondering why the G20 is now forcing all Western nations to pass Bail-in laws to have you and I pay for the next financial crisis, all one has to do is look at what is taking place in Venezuela, Argentina, and now Canada to see that the Day of Reckoning is now upon us.


So if any cash, savings, or retirement accounts held by governments, or in banking institutions is as vulnerable as it was 80 years ago during the last great bank holiday, what alternative is there for you to protect your wealth, get it offshore and away from any potential confiscation, and into something that is not readily taken by these now insolvent institutions?

You can do this 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.

Russian parliament approves Damocles Sword to confiscate Western assets if necessary

When the U.S. issued sanctions against Russia in early 2014, they did so without international approval, and without a resolution from the United Nations.  In essence, the Obama administration used the dollar as an economic weapon against the Eurasian power in response to their taking the Crimea after the U.S. backed rebels unlawfully overthrew the government in Ukraine.
However, in addition to these sanctions were pressures the U.S. placed on their allies and on their vassal states in Europe and the Far East, making the sanctions a full fledged proxy war that held European businesses stuck in the middle.
And as the economic sanctions on Russia near their third year in play, on Oct. 29, Russia’s upper chamber of their legislature approved a new bill that would make it legal for the government to confiscate foreign assets held within the country.

Got Karatbars? India starts to coerce its people to give up their gold as Turkey expands gold savings accounts

For those who continue to listen to the mainstream media and think that gold is nothing more than a barbarous relic, then they are missing out on the explosion of gold based monetary programs that are expanding rapidly in many other parts of the world.  In fact, in a comparison of two nations, one that is working hard to get gold into their hands of their people, while another is working to divest that gold to shore up their indebted banking system, the paradigm shift back into gold as money is growing incredibly fast.
When stripped of its pompous rhetoric, what India is offering is simple: a gold-for-paper exchange, which however in a culture where gold has been the definition of money for centuries, would likely be a non-starter from the beginning. One look at the chart below showing Indian gold demands is sufficient to show just how ingrained in the Indian psyche gold has become. 
The one thing to watch for is a shift in the posture of the Indian government: for now participation in the gold monetization scheme is voluntary, and largely geared to the general public with the 500 gram/year limit. But if and when the Modi cabinet starts "urging" the population, and certainly when threats of fines and/or prison time emerge, that is when we will finally have confirmation that the second coming of Executive Order 6102 has arrived. 
Fast forward to this weekend when while we still await the Indian government to unveil the "threats and fines" part, it started the "urging" when during an address on his monthly radio programme of "Mann Ki Baat", Indian prime minister Modi "exhorted people to help convert gold to the nation's economic strength by joining in various schemes to be launched soon" adding that "gold can be converted from dead money to an economic force. To leave gold lying as dead money is behaviour not in sync with the modern times," he said. 
Still, Modi was at least truthful in noting that accumulating gold as a form of economic security is deeply rooted in India's social tradition; as a result we expect the threats of fines and incarceration to follow shortly. 
For those who are unfamiliar, the Khaleej Times reminds us of the details of India gold monetization plot: 
Earlier in the week, the Reserve Bank of India issued norms for implementation of the gold monetization 
As for the motives, we have covered them before, but here they are again: "the objective of the scheme is to mobilize gold, give a fillip to the gems and jewelry sector by making the metal available from banks on loan and reduce the reliance on imported gold." 
In other words, to take it away from the population. - Zerohedge
Like what China, Russia, and other Eastern/Eurasian countries have already discovered, gold will soon be the cornerstone of the next financial system, and India is desperate to regain their reserves after years of selling it off to their peoples.  But unlike what is going on in India and in most Western banking facilities, one Middle Eastern nation is doing just the opposite, and is providing their people a way to not only buy gold conveniently and easily, but to help transition their savings into a gold backed plan.


Turkey has created ATM machines that consumers can use to purchase gold directly from their fiat money, and they have also created new savings plans where the population can trade their money for gold, and spend/save it as if it were regular money.

But since most of the world doesn't reside in Turkey, is there an alternative we can use to not only trade our currencies into gold and real money, save it outside of a banking system that could threaten their people with confiscation (As India is doing), and have access to it with the click of a mouse or swipe of a smartphone to use as we see fit?

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Got Karatbars? Economist Marc Faber shows why you need to have gold stored offshore

As we prepare for the months of September and October, which in the normal market cycle are periods of extreme economic and financial swings, the message from most of the alternative economists remains the same.

Have money (cash) outside the banking system, have a modicum of physical gold and/or silver in hand, and following the passage of Dodd-Frank, the G20 January resolution, and the bank holiday just experienced in Greece, have most of your wealth stored offshore, and in assets not tied to any particular currency or country.

But for those who are either trying to get started on their accumulation of physical metals, or are using the lowered spot price to add to their stacks, the supply situation is getting extremely dire.  In fact from a personal anecdote, when I recently took someone to my local coin shop to buy some silver we ended up taking their entire supply of generic rounds, which was only about 100 to begin with.

And even beyond a local standpoint, shortages are growing nationwide, and across the globe.  In fact, just over the weekend the Royal Canadian Mint out of Canada defaulted on a delivery of silver bars, which is a huge story and a massive signal that demand is at or near all-time highs, and the manipulation of prices for silver and gold has been too much, and has opened the door for investors and savers worldwide to grab any and all metals they can.

Yet with all localized or sovereign bullion metals there is also a cost, and a fear that these coins could be confiscated, nationalized, or even taxed to the point they no longer provide the necessary protections that gold and silver are against currency devaluations.  And while it would be much harder for governments to try to pull off what several of them did in the 1930's when nations in Europe and the U.S. called for a turn in of privately held gold bullion, hedging one's bets is not only prudent in troubling times, but a necessity.

And that hedge at this point in time is to have much of your wealth out of the banking system, and away from any potential confiscation or nationalization by a government that created a monetary crisis through their own speculation, debt creation, and out of control spending.  But above all, available if necessary to be accessed and used as well.

In fact, this thesis is one that is shared right now by well known economist Marc Faber, who speculated on Aug. 7 in an interview that while governments and the mainstream media have been downplaying gold and silver for several years because it reflects the true value of their worthless paper currencies, these same governments when the next crisis comes will attempt to vilify owners of gold and silver as being the 'greedy people' who created the crisis because of their hoarding of the metals, and by them leaving the playing field of paper currencies.



What about gold? Being in a correction mode for a couple of years already, it recently has broken down some more.

I really don’t know, all I know is that I own gold and it doesn’t worry me that it went down because as I mentioned to you I have this diversification, the bonds in US dollars and the cash in US dollars has been a good investment essentially over the last twelve months. Then I own equities and I own properties in Asia that have been reasonably good investments so the fact that gold is going down doesn’t worry me and I buy every month a little bit but I think on this weakness I will increase the position substantially because I had maybe say 25% in gold but because equities and properties went up, the dollar went up and gold went down, the allocation to gold is no longer 25% but maybe only 10 or 15%.

So then I have to stock it up again. But I would say an individual should definitely own some physical gold.

The bigger question is where should he store it? because I think if we think it through, the failure of monetary policies will not be admitted by the professors that are at central banks, they will then go and blame someone else for it and then an easy target would be to blame it on people that own physical gold because they can argue, well these are the ones that do take money out of circulation and then the velocity of money goes down, we have to take it away from them.

That has happened in 1933 in the US. With our brilliant governments in Europe that follow US policies and with the ECB talking every day to the Federal Reserve, they would do the same in Europe, take the gold away from people. - Marcopolis

So, taking into consideration the three protective layers (cash in hand, metals in hand, and wealth offshore stored in metals outside the banking and sovereign system), what is the best solution to accomplish two of these three things?

The answer to this lies in a company called Karatbars.





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

And as added perks to signing up with Karatbars, as a customer or affiliate, you can have the power to move your money into a free e-wallet that functions just like an offshore bank account, and is outside the authority of the banking system.  From there, you can take your fiat currency in any denomination... dollars, euros, yen, etc... and purchase physical gold which can either be delivered directly to you, or stored for free at one of Karatbar's vaults.

Additionally, any gold that you buy can easily be sold back to Karatbars, or any metals dealer, and if with Karatbars it is then exchanged for currency that is uploaded to you through a pre-loaded debit Mastercard which is connected directly to your e-wallet.  And as we know, MasterCard is recognized in nearly every country around the world, and usable in any currency that accepts it.

But perhaps the best feature with Karatbars is their affiliate program, where you can earn money off commissions from getting others to sign up and become a customer or affiliate.  Not only do you receive commissions from their purchasing of physical gold, but you also earn commissions from anyone who buys a commission package, with that money going directly into your debit MasterCard when you have enough units to cycle.

Imagine the ability to earn the money in which to buy your gold savings simply by purchasing a commission affiliate package one time, and then getting others to sign up and do the same thing.

How many businesses or entrepreneurs can build an infinite business with spending less than $400 of their own money?  And there is never a mandatory requirement to buy beyond what you desire, on your own schedule.  And there is nothing to lose, because you're using money (paper dollars) to buy gold (physical money) and in the end you don't lose a thing.



The global financial system, along with dozens of respected economists, are telling us that now is the time for the end of our current form of money, and the beginning of the transition into a new monetary system that is expected to be backed by gold.  And with banks, governments, and even Harvard professors mandating that central banks have no choice but to eliminate cash from usage by the people to stave off collapse, will you wait until it is too late to make a decision on how you will protect your wealth, and be able to function within the coming new monetary system?

Got Karatbars? Keynote speaker at recent Fed conference warns you need cash out of banking system

Dateline Greece: July 2015.  Bank holiday extends into second week with a new wrinkle added to the mix.

Greek people cannot access their possessions held in bank safety deposit boxes.

This is the second country within the past four years that has instituted a bank holiday, and capital controls which removed the power of its citizens to access their valuables from 'protected' safety deposit boxes housed in a banking institution.  Yet even with this evident and blatant attempt by the bank to keep the Greek people from their funds, the are not alone in government's wanting to ensure you keep your money where they can access/restrict/seize it in case of the next banking or monetary crisis.

Dateline United States: 2010  Department of Homeland Security issues proclamation under the Patriot Act where the government can access or seize the contents of your safety deposit box at anytime.

According to in-house memos now circulating, the DHS has issued orders to banks across America which announce to them that “under the Patriot Act” the DHS has the absolute right to seize, without any warrant whatsoever, any and all customer bank accounts, to make “periodic and unannounced” visits to any bank to open and inspect the contents of “selected safe deposit boxes.”

Further, the DHS “shall, at the discretion of the agent supervising the search, remove, photograph or seize as evidence” any of the following items “bar gold, gold coins, firearms of any kind unless manufactured prior to 1878, documents such as passports or foreign bank account records, pornography or any material that, in the opinion of the agent, shall be deemed of to be of a contraband nature.” - Investment Watchblog

And of course, with the financial and monetary systems showing cracks in recent weeks, how long until the next liquidity crisis facilitates the implementation of Dodd-Frank legislation allowing for banks to confiscate your bank accounts to recapitalize their losses under a bail-in scenario?

The timeframe for this may be closer than we think.  In fact, a few weeks ago, well known financial analyst and author Nomi Prinz was invited to be the keynote speaker at a Federal Reserve conference.  Shortly after her taking time to address members of the world's largest central bank, Prins told Gerald Celente and King World News in an interview that the Fed 'has no idea what they are doing', and began sounding a warning call for people to act on their own rather than rely on the 'experts' at the central banks.

Yet Nomi Prins does have a solution, and one that she sees as the only viable option to protect your wealth, and be prepared for what is coming in financial markets.  Get into cash, gold, and get your money outside the banking system.

Central banks seek fresh ways to keep the party going as countries like Greece shut down banks to contain capital flight, and places like Puerto Rico and multiple states and municipalities face economic ruin. But they are clueless as to what to do.

In this cauldron of instability and lack of leadership, cash is the one remaining financial possession that Main Street can translate into goods, services and security. That’s why private banks want more control over it.

Banks Want Your Cash For Their Latent Emergencies

The notion of a bail-in, or recourse to people’s deposits, is related to the idea of restricting the movement, or existence, of physical cash. Bail-ins, like any cash limitations, imply that if a bank needs emergency liquidity, your deposits are the place to find it, which has negative repercussion on your own solvency. This is exactly what the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, coupled with the creation of the FDIC sought to avoid - banks confiscating your money at the worst possible times.

The ‘war on cash’ is thus really a war on the difference between the money you can hold on to and the money the banks can take away from you. The existence of this cash debate underscores the need for a personal policy of cash extraction from the big banks. Do you have one? - Nomi Prins, Silver Doctors

So if you are like most people, and don't have a huge net worth, or a network of insiders to help you move your money out of a bank and into a more protected structure, what is the answer?

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.

History repeats: Just as in 1933 America, Greeks today cannot access their safety deposit boxes in banks

In the prepper community, as well as in alternative finance, there is a constant belief… if you don’t hold it, you don’t own it.  And in the Greek crisis that is raging right now in Southern Europe, and between the German establishment, the un-elected Troika, and the impoverished Greek peoples, the history of 1933 America is once again proving itself out as the bank holiday occurring right now in Greece is prohibiting depositors the power to access their rightful possessions held in safety deposit boxes.

Greece upgrades capital controls to now confiscating bank deposits... got Karatbars?

After laying down a series of capital controls in Greece, primarily that of the Greek legislature decreeing that all excess cash in banks be transferred directly to the central bank, the next phase of Syriza's domestic war on money was enacted on April 25 as authorities are now confiscating deposits of anyone deemed to be in shortfall of their tax obligations.

No hearing, no trial... just a freezing and taking of assets if their money is stored in a bank and they are determined to owe the state an obligation.



As the country’s finances reach a critical point, tax authorities have started seizing the deposits of small debtors, Kathimerini understands.

No figures were available regarding the new crackdown but cases of debtors targeted included a citizen with a debt of just 200 euros, Kathimerini understands.

The bank account of the man in question was frozen and then reopened once it was established that he had paid his dues. In several cases, including that of a citizen with a debt of 24,000 euros, bailiffs are said to have used threats to secure the cash. The initiative comes as efforts to crack down on rich Greeks with tax debts make slow progress. - Ekathimenrini

Reliance on governments, banks, and currencies has become a fool's errand, and anyone who by now is entrusting their wealth to paper assets in a proxy controlled institution will lose it all, or soon have it devalued to pennies on the dollar.

We do not necessarily have to cite the multiple instances of government wealth destruction that has taken place in Cyprus through bail-ins, Switzerland through capital controls on withdrawing your money, Japan in transferring their pensions to buy U.S. debt, and now Greece in summarily confiscating funds and accounts, but if anyone had a doubt that it is coming to America and the rest of Europe, the facts are without dispute.

U.S. Cops Use Traffic Stops To Seize Millions From Drivers Never Charged With A Crime

There are a few ways for you to protect your assets and your wealth, and at the top of the list is Karatbars.  Not only can you have physical gold delivered to your home, but you can also choose to store it offshore for free in one of Karatbar's three vaults worldwide.  Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, Karatbars offers affiliates and customers a virtual offshore bank account through a back office e-wallet, that can be accessed and uploaded to a pre-loaded MasterCard for use in any currency, and anywhere around the world.

And since Karatbars is not registered as a bank, the are not subject to U.S. FACTA laws which force countries to provide the names and amount of money they have offshore to the I.R.S..



Our grandparents during the 1930's found out how detrimental it is to trust in banks and safety deposit boxes when the government issued a two week holiday, and confiscated their gold stored in these institutions.  And with the passage of Dodd-Frank in 2010, the means and the laws are on the side of government to do this once again.

To sign up for a Karatbars account, either as a customer or as an affiliate where you can earn commissions on any package and gold sold to people you personally sign up with the company, click on this link to begin your trek to a new future of wealth protection outside the system, and the one sure way to protect your assets, as well as gain new assets, before the coming collapse and the evolution of the new non-dollar financial system.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: U.S. wants to get their hands on Ukraine to loot it

On March 12, former Assistance Secretary of the Treasury Dr. Paul Craig Roberts spoke as a guest on USA Watchdog.  During his 50 minute interview, Dr. Roberts addressed America’s desperate need to win out over Ukraine, with their ultimate goal being the confiscation of wealth and resources, and not one of freeing the Ukrainian people.
“So, why is Ukraine important?  Well, there is the Black Sea naval base that Russia has there.  They have a lease on it until 2042.  You have Eastern Ukraine, which is former Soviet military industrial complex . . . for Washington, they say, look we can really bring a serious strategic threat to Russia here.  We can devalue their nuclear deterrent by putting anti-nuclear bases in Ukraine on their border.  So, when we put pressure on them, they have to think much harder when they stand up to us because we will have the upper hand. . . . So, that’s the real reason for what they are doing.  There are other economic reasons.  They want to get their hands on Ukraine.  They want to loot it.”  - USA Watchdog

IMF proposes a 10% tax on all bank deposits to pay for sovereign crises

First there was Cyprus, where upwards of 60% of all bank deposits were confiscated to bail out private bank insolvency.  Then came new initiatives by several countries, including Canada, New Zealand the the ECB, to take depositor funds and use them to bail out financial institutions during the next economic or monetary crisis.
And on Oct, 14, we have the IMF proposing a new 10% tax on all European depositors to help bail out the increasing sovereign debts that have only expanded in the Euro Zone since the credit crisis of 2008.
