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?

In helping to try to legitimize Bitcoin and remove its criminal stigma, pro-Bitcoin advocates ask Congress to go after unregulated exchanges

Perhaps in an attempt to appease the government and help legitimize Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as being a viable asset in the financial system, a number of pro-Bitcoin advocates spoke before Congress at a hearing on June 8 in which they pleaded with the government's regulatory arm to go after unlicensed and unregulated cryptocurrency exchanges since they were the ones most likely to help facilitate illegal activity using Bitcoin and others.

Bitcoin and blockchain experts are urging US lawmakers to ramp up pressure on unlicensed offshore exchanges. 
Coming yesterday during a hearing held by a subcommittee within the US House of Representatives, the calls followed a notable string of ransomware attacks that have seen consumer data held hostage in exchange for bitcoin payments. The situation has also seen politicians taking a renewed interest in the more negative aspects of cryptocurrency technology in response. 
Yet, the core problem, panelists told the committee members, is not in bitcoin purchases, it's that when criminals do use bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies for illicit purposes, they often go through exchanges hosted outside the US. 
In statements, panelists sought to portray these businesses as unlicensed, unregulated and unwilling to abide by basic anti-money laundering and know-your-customer regulations, rules that digital currency exchanges in the US and Western Europe must abide by. 
"Nearly 100% of ransomware campaigns cash out through platforms such as these. It's a huge problem," said Kathryn Haun, a former Assistant US Attorney and now a lecturer at Stanford University. "Not surprisingly, the bad actors are not using the Coinbases of the world." - Coindesk
The fact of the matter is, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are no longer 'under the radar' mediums of exchange, but viable forms of currency that are accepted and traded as both money, and as securities in markets all across the globe.  But it is events such as the Ransomware attack, and the stigma of it being used in money laundering that are bringing Bitcoin advocates to realize that a modicum of regulation by central authorities may help eliminate the fears that one day government's will come in with their power and try to criminalize or eliminate cryptocurrencies entirely.

Academics now vilifying cash after decades of downplaying gold

The stereotype that labels academics as little more than theorists cloistered in their ivory towers was on full display this last week when a Harvard economics Professor and P.H.D. suggested that it was time to ban all physical cash because it naturally leads people to evade taxes, incite human trafficking, and is the fundamental cause of many criminal activities.

Ironically as well, this faulty line of thinking has been the catalyst behind the vilification of gold for so many decades, and its label as little more than a 'pet rock'.

Six months since Larry Summers first suggested "it's time to kill the $100 bill," and three months after The ECB actually killed the €500 Note, another Harvard scholar is reinvigorating the war on cash. Amid claims that paper money fuels corruption, terrorism, tax evasion, and illegal immigration, Ken Rogoff (ironically of "It's Different This Time" infamy) says the US should get rid of the $100 bill(and $50s and $20s) proposing, in his words, "a 'less-cash' society, not a cashless one, at least for the foreseeable future." 
According to the esteemed ivory tower academic, paper currency lies at the heart of some of today’s most intractable public-finance and monetary problems. As Rogoff explains in The Wall Street Journal, getting rid of most of it - that is, moving to a society where cash is used less frequently and mainly for small transactions - could be a big help. 
Rogoff's begins by stating factoids as facts... 
There is little debate among law-enforcement agencies that paper currency, especially large notes such as the U.S. $100 bill, facilitates crime: racketeering, extortion, money laundering, drug and human trafficking, the corruption of public officials, not to mention terrorism. There are substitutes for cash—cryptocurrencies, uncut diamonds, gold coins, prepaid cards—but for many kinds of criminal transactions, cash is still king. It delivers absolute anonymity, portability, liquidity and near-universal acceptance. It is no accident that whenever there is a big-time drug bust, the authorities typically find wads of cash. 
Cash is also deeply implicated in tax evasion, which costs the federal government some $500 billion a year in revenue. According to the Internal Revenue Service, a lot of the action is concentrated in small cash-intensive businesses, where it is difficult to verify sales and the self-reporting of income. By contrast, businesses that take payments mostly by check, bank card or electronic transfer know that it is much easier for tax authorities to catch them dissembling. Though the data are much thinner for state and local governments, they too surely lose big-time from tax evasion, perhaps as much as $200 billion a year. 
Cash also lies at the core of the illegal immigration problem in the U.S. If American employers couldn’t so easily pay illegal workers off the books in cash, the lure of jobs would abate, and the flow of illegal immigrants would shrink drastically. Needless to say, phasing out most cash would be a far more humane and sensible way of discouraging illegal immigration than constructing a giant wall. - Zerohedge
What Professor Rogoff unfortunately tends to ignore in his diatribe to ban cash is that it is not the people, who's potential criminal activities involving money are little more than a drop in the bucket in our $57 trillion global economy, but the fact that the greatest monetary crimes are done without a single physical dollar being used.  It is the digital monetary system, run by banks, central bankers, and corrupt governments, that are the foundation for most of the criminal fraud that takes place in our financial system.

The ability to hold both cash and gold in your hands is as great a freedom as the right to own a gun.  And whenever you see a public official call for the banning of either, then the real reasons behind this are about control and dominion, or in the case of the Federal Reserve, to protect their own to the detriment of people like you and I who simply want to live under the auspices of real and sound money, and individual responsibility.

FBI chief James Comey learned nothing about honesty during his time at a hedge fund

One day after FBI Director James Comey stunned the public by announcing that although Democratic Presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton egregiously broke at least six Federal statutes in the handling of classified material, no charges would be brought against her due her perceived intent in the mishandling of classified documents, the former Assistant District Attorney is headed to Congress to face the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to answer as to why he failed to bring about an indictment recommendation despite the evidence he presented.
And among all this, what is perhaps most ironic is that Director Comey at one time worked for three years at a unique hedge fund, which prided itself on absolute truth, honesty, and transparency.

Crooked Hillary used office of Sec. of State to try to help bailout son-in-law’s bad market bets

There appear to be three primary reasons why Hillary Clinton wants desperately to become the next President of the United States, and none of these reasons has anything to do with leading the American people towards a better country.  First, and as she exhibited during her time in office as Obama’s Secretary of State, it is to enrich herself and her husband Bill by using the Presidency to enlarge the Clinton Foundation through the selling of favors to domestic and foreign nations and enterprises.  Secondly, it is to ensure that her criminal and perhaps treasonous activities never see the light of day of an indictment.  And lastly, it is to fuel her narcissistic psychopathy that the nation owes her the Oval Office whether she is qualified, or even the best choice to run the free world.
We already know from the seven years of Barack Obama’s tenure that the use of the Attorney General’s office was done explicitly to protect rather than prosecute criminal activity, as seen by the fact that both Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch came into office from the same Wall Street law firm that is well known as a lobbyist for banks and corporations to the government.  And as Holder ensured no banks or bankers were ever brought to trial under his policy of ‘too big to jail’, so too is Lynch doing her best to ensure that Hillary Clinton is not indicted despite overwhelming evidence of the mishandling classified documents and their dissemination.

Liberal policy gone wild: Washington D.C. approves paying criminals not to commit crime

First it was getting rid of mental institutions which led to an explosion of homeless and mentally ill people residing in prisons.  Then it was a push to get rid of the death penalty which leaves violent criminals languishing in jail for decades at the expense of the taxpayer.  And now in a move that once again shows that liberal legislators can’t fathom how to truly solve problems, the city council in Washington D.C. unanimously passed a new bill to provide money to criminals in the hopes that it will deter them from committing crimes.
It is perhaps ironic that the city that supports the seat of America’s government is one of the most crime ridden per capita in the U.S., and hosts some of the worst homicide rates in the country.

Is Canada the first domino to fall in the new Great Depression?

Interesting things have happened 18 months after oil prices fell off a cliff to hover down around $35 per barrel, with the deflationary environment that now permeates the global economy just a microcosm of the overall problems that signal the world entering into a new Great Depression.  And besides currency wars, trade wars, and escalating hot wars that are the norm across the world today, one economy may be the first domino to trigger the global collapse.

Last year, law enforcement ‘stole’ more from Americans than burglar’s did in all their crimes

Government’s are very good at spinning criminal activity into what legislators and judges deem as ‘legal’ programs.  From enacting a ponzi scheme back in the 1930’s and calling it Social Security, to legalizing counterfeiting under the guise of monetary policy through the creation of a private banking system to control the nation’s currency, corruption by government against its people is as old as history itself.
And thanks to the ideological ‘War on Terror’ and ‘War on Drugs’, outright theft is now legalized under the name of Civil Forfeiture.  And according to a report from the FBI, legal theft by law enforcement has now exceeded the total amount stolen by labeled criminals in the all the burglaries committed last year.

Attorney General Holder finally acts to stop illegal theft and seizures by the police

There is one constant in the realm of politics… when the light is shined on the rats in Washington and at the local level then actual change takes place to the benefit of the citizens.  And with so many different sources, including satirists and comediennes speaking out on the topic of Civil Forfeiture regarding the police using a spurious Federal law to steal personal property from the people without a warrant or crime for their own use, Attorney General Eric Holder finally had to act and issued a proclamation outlawing these actions being done by local law enforcement.

The cost of a nation banning guns for their citizens

Recently, Austrailia became the latest politically correct country to ban a major assortment of guns from their citizens.  In the short amount of time since the ban, and public destruction of those firearms, crime has exploded with murders, home invasions, physcial assaults climbing more than 50% in each sector.


Here is a video breakdown of societal destruction once Austrailia banned firearms for their citizens.




Unfortunately, politicians are more interested in absolute control over their citizens than for public safety.  In the city of Chicago, where ownership of firearms is extremely controlled, the municipality had 8 murders last weekend alone, and was named the most dangerous city in America.

How the Second Amendment would have stopped Colorado shooting massacre

Almost like clockwork, the liberal activists, government agents, and mountpiece journalists immedately called for gun control over the American people after the July 19 shooting massacre in Colorado.  Not too mention, the coincidence of a gun event taking place just days from the U.N. Small Arms Treaty being signed by the United States.

However, just as the city of Kinnesaw, Georgia proves, citizens who carry guns according to their Second Amendment rights, not only deter gun crimes from happening, most very often, stop potential massacres from taking place.



Clint Eastwood?  Nope... just an average senior citizen with a concealed carry and the WILL to use it.


Imagine what would could have been stopped in 1930's Germany if every Jew had a mauser, 20 rounds of ammunition, and the WILL to use it?  Hitler would have been just a footnote in the annals of history.

Detroit: Turn out the lights because the party is over

For decades, the City of Detroit was the paragon of industry and production in the U.S., but now, it is a shell of its former glory.  Population flight, industry moving offshore, and a massive budget deficit has now led legislators in the once proud city to cut city light services to half of the municipality.



Detroit, whose 139 square miles contain 60 percent fewer residents than in 1950, will try to nudge them into a smaller living space by eliminating almost half its streetlights.

As it is, 40 percent of the 88,000 streetlights are broken and the city, whose finances are to be overseen by an appointed board, can’t afford to fix them. Mayor Dave Bing’s plan would create an authority to borrow $160 million to upgrade and reduce the number of streetlights to 46,000. Maintenance would be contracted out, saving the city $10 million a year. -  Bloomberg
With crime and poverty already on the rise, this move, while fiscally necessary, will only increase violence as the hot summer months come, and unemployed citizens seek the only avenues they have left since Government Motors moved out of town, and turned off their own lights.

Escape from California (Before it's too late)

The once breathtaking and economic marvel known as the state of California, which boasted the 8th largest GDP in the world, has become a cesspool of liberal ideologies, anti-business sentiment, and a psychopathic montage of finding new ways to screw their citizens.



In a breakdown of the decline of the state of California, the End of the American Dream broke down 16 different areas where Californians are running out of time to either escape from the coming disaster, or be consumed by it.

We will post just a few of the reasons here.



#2 California Is A Horrible Place To Do Business

For seven years in a row, CEOs ranked California as the worst place in the United States to do business. Thousands of good companies have left the state in recent years, and yet California lawmakers continue to pile on more rules, regulations and taxes.

#5 Desperate Municipalities Are Severely Slashing Government Services All Over The State
When you have no more money, you have to start cutting somewhere. In many cities in California, government services are being curtailed dramatically. Just check out what is going on in Costa Mesa....

Costa Mesa, a city of 110,000 south of Los Angeles, has slashed its payroll from 611 to 450. It is selling its police helicopters and has hired a neighboring city for air patrols. It's also pursuing a controversial effort to convert to a charter city from a general law city, which would give City Hall more power to outsource more work, said councilman Jim Righeimer.

 #7 California Has Some Of The Highest Tax Rates In The Nation
The last thing many California taxpayers want to hear is that taxes might be raised again. Californians already get absolutely hammered by taxes. California has one of the highest state income tax rates in the nation, one of the highest sales tax rates in the nation and the highest gasoline tax rate in the nation.

Unfortunately, it is only a matter of time before the politicians come around for even more.

#8 Poverty Is Absolutely Exploding In California
Once upon a time, California was viewed as a land of great opportunity.

Now it is a land of crushing poverty in many areas.

Sadly, the number of children living in poverty in the state of California has increased by a staggering 30 percent since 2007.

In addition, 60 percent of all students attending California public schools now qualify for free or reduced-price school lunches.

#11 California Has Some Of The Worst Schools In The Nation
Many families are moving away from California because the public schools are absolutely nightmarish. The truth is that California has some of the worst schools in the entire nation. In the late 70s, California was number one in per-pupil spending on education, but now the state has fallen to 48th place.

#14 California Has One Of The Worst Health Care Systems In America
All over California, hospitals are shutting down. A big reason for this is because of the massive numbers of poor people and illegal aliens that are taking advantage of "free" medical care at hospital emergency rooms. A number of good hospitals have been forced to shut down in recent years and now the state of California ranks dead last out of all 50 states in the number of emergency rooms per million people.

When corrupt and liberal politicians are allowed to run wild over a city and state government, the results are inevitable.  Detroit, New Orleans, Cleveland, and now, the entire state of California.

Crime and prisons are the new economy

As more and more incarceration is being outsourced to private companies, an interesting dychotomy is occurring between the state, and these entities.

Companies are MANDATING that states arrest more poeple, and ensure quotas to the prison system.

The nation’s largest private prison company is offering cash-strapped state governments to buy up their penitentiaries and manage convicted criminals at a cost-savings. But there’s a catch…the states must guarantee that are there are enough prisoners to ensure that the venture is profitable to the company.
Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) has reached out to 48 states as part of a $250 million plan to own existing prisons and manage their operations. But in return CCA wants a 20-year contract and assurances that the state will keep the prisons at least 90% full. - All Gov.com

Just like the old cliche regarding life insurance, where sometimes a person is more valuable dead than alive, so to is it becoming more profitable to the state when someone is incarcerated than free.

The future of America can be seen through the eyes of Detroit

The Economic Collapse blogsite came out February 13th with a unique perspective of how American as a whole might look in the future through the eyes of one of its former economic marvels;  The city of Detroit.  Before its fall, and near fatal status, the motor city was known worldwide for its industry and production, but today is almost a ghost town where police limit their response areas, and complete sections of the city are in total disrepair.

The Economic Collapse has compiled 20 things we can learn from the death of Detroit, and here are just a few.

#1 People don't want to live where the stench of failure and decay is constantly in the air. Back in the 1950s, Detroit was a teeming metropolis of approximately 2 million people. According to the 2010 census, only 713,000 people live in Detroit today. The U.S. Census Bureau says that Detroit lost a resident every 22 minutes during the first decade of this century.

#2 When the economy falls apart, desperate people will do desperate things and many homeowners will fight back. Justifiable homicide in Detroit rose by a staggering 79 percent during 2011.

#4 When there is not enough money to go around, a lot of local governments will choose to cut back on police protection. Ten years ago, there were approximately 5,000 police for the city of Detroit. Today, there are less than 3,000.

#6 Economic decay is a breeding ground for chaos and violence. Last Friday and Saturday, a total of nine shootings were reported in the city of Detroit.
#9 When criminals become desperate, they will steal literally anything that is not bolted down. In Detroit today, thieves have stripped so much copper wiring out of the street lights that half of all the lights in some neighborhoods no longer work.

#11 One of the clearest signs of decline in America is the state of our education system. Only 25 percent of all students in Detroit end up graduating from high school. Many other major cities will soon have graduation rates similar to Detroit.

#13 A growing percentage of Americans cannot even read or write. This is a very frightening indication of what the future of America could look like. According to one stunning report, 47 percent of all people living in the city of Detroit are functionally illiterate.

#15 The employment situation in America is a lot worse than the government is telling us. An analysis of census figures found that 48.5% of all men living in Detroit from age 20 to age 64 did not have a job in 2008.

#16 When a major city becomes a hellhole, home prices fall like a rock. The median price of a home in Detroit is now just $6000.

The U.S. economy never recovered from the last major financial crisis, and now another one is on the way.

As the economy crumbles, so will the fabric of our society.

The American people are terribly spoiled and they do not possess the character to handle depression-like conditions with grace and dignity.

Occupy Wall Street Camp has become a drug infested crime ghetto

It had to happen eventually.  Unorganized people gathering in a park for long stretches of time with nothing more than a hatred for the success of others has now turned into a mob rules, drug infested camp where theft, drug use and even rape has become commonplace amongst the unwashed masses.

Interviews with some of the OWS crew have validated this, as seen in the video below.



Additionally, it has been reported that a handicapped deaf man was raped by members in the park.

Q: You said a deaf guy was raped?
 A: Yeah…
 Q: Did the guy, I mean, do these, did that get reported to the police, or did that stay inside the camp?
 A: Well, OK, I’m not sure for that particular incident. Yeah, no I-that might have stayed inside the camp. - Breitbart
It should come as no surprise, as the riots of the 1960's, 70's, and the Rodney King destruction brings out the worst form of human behavior when people come together to protest over materialism, not ideas.

Joe Biden ushers in rapes, murders, and mayhem if Obama job bill not passed

There are very few good things to say about the wacky, and always hilarious Joe Biden, but it appears that he has joined other liberal Democrats in falling off the wagon of sanity.  In a speech yesterday in Flint, Michigan, the Vice-President told listeners that if President Obama's job bill isn't passed, then crime such as rape, murder, etc... will escalate around the country.

"In 2008, when Flint had 265 sworn officers on their police force, there were 35 murders and 91 rapes in this city," Biden said. "In 2010, when Flint had only 144 police officers, the murder rate climbed to 65 and rapes--just to pick two categories--climbed to 229. In 2011, you now only have 125 shields. God only knows what the numbers will be this year for Flint if we don't rectify it."
 The vice president also seemed to suggest that the Obama administration's first stimulus is the reason rapes and murders were not even higher in 2010 and 2011." And God only knows what that number would have been had we not been able to get a little bit of help," Biden said.  - The Weekly Standard
Here is a video of his speech... be sure not to be near any alcoholic beverages, or sharp objects as the Daily Economist does not want to be part of a self-induced crime.

Americans are relying upon government handouts more now than in anytime in history

Even during the Great Depression, not all Americans benefited from a government handout or program.  With 25% of the nation unemployed, this meant that 75% had paying jobs of one type or another.  The WPA, CCC, and other alphabet agencies, coupled with the new social programs such as FDIC, began the course of American welfare that grew under the Johnson administration, and accelerated in the 90's and 2000's under Republican and Democratics Presidents.

That acceleration has now led the American people to be very close to 50/50 on reliance on the government dole.  In a new report, nearly 49% of all Americans rely upon a government benefit in one form or another.

Nearly half, 48.5%, of the population lived in a household that received some type of government benefit in the first quarter of 2010, according to Census data. Those numbers have risen since the middle of the recession when 44.4% lived households receiving benefits in the third quarter of 2008.

Click for full-size image
The share of people relying on government benefits has reached a historic high, in large part from the deep recession and meager recovery, but also because of the expansion of government programs over the years. - Wall Street Journal

This is something that is very discouraging, because as the monetary systems of the global economy start to fail, and the US government neglects to address its skyrocketing national debt.  Nearly half of the 310 million Americans living today will find it hard, or be unable to cope should circumstances cut off the government spigot, and will lead to a more crime and rebellion, such as was seen in the Middle East earlier this year, and in Europe over the economic riots taking place now.
