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?

Bitcoin goes mainstream as Japan legalizes the crypto-currency and designates it as legal tender

As major world currencies such as the Yen, Yuan, and Euro struggle to remain viable in an eroding global monetary system, some governments are slowly coming to accept the advent of alternative mediums of exchange that their citizens can use to protect their purchasing power.

Since 2009, dozens of central banks have embarked on a currency war following the 2008 global financial crisis in order to protect their economies and especially their exports.  And ironically it was this same year that Bitcoin came onto the scene as the world's first crypto-currency.

And over the past eight years governments have struggled with how to deal with a form of currency that they could not control, tax, or regulate, and Bitcoin inevitably followed the path laid out by Mahatma Gandhi when he used a non-violent method of rebellion to eventually secure India's freedom from Britain.
"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."
And on Feb. 9 we may have just seen the first real victory for Bitcoin acceptance in the mainstream as the Japanese government has officially decreed Bitcoin to now be considered as legal tender, and welcomed it for use by individuals and businesses.
Embracing cryptocurrency, Japan has a new law that will make bitcoins usable as legal tender. Companies hoping to deal in the new currency, however, must submit to a long list of regulations to ensure that the ‘coins’ are not being used for criminal activity. 
Among the regulations, a company is required to have at least $100,000 in reserve currency, report their activities to the government regularly, and undergo routine external audits by the Japanese National Tax Agency. 
Japanese companies wishing to use bitcoins will be expected to pay the equivalent of some $300,000 to adopt bitcoin, and there is no guarantee that they will receive a license, even if they abide by government edicts. The steep price tag will likely discourage smaller Japanese companies from adopting the cryptocurrency. 
The measures have been put in place, according to reports, to protect the rights of consumers, as bitcoins have been involved in several notorious scams. The most famous of these was the Mt. Gox scandal, in which a bitcoin exchange company was found to be artificially inflating their holdings. At its 2013 peak, Mt. Gox handled about 70 percent of bitcoin transactions in Japan, but the scandal shuttered them. - Sputnik News

There are of course many upsides and downsides to this new initiative by Japan embracing Bitcoin.  First, centralized regulation by a government is the antithesis of what the original creators of Bitcoin desired when they created the crypto-currency almost a decade ago, and it threatens to impart a growing loss of confidence in the digital currency as people begin to see Bitcoin simply as another fiat medium of exchange subject to the whims of government.  However, acceptance by that same government could be the catalyst necessary for reaching a point of critical mass, where retailers will rush into accepting the currency as it explodes in recognition locally, and elsewhere around the world.

Additionally, and like what we have seen recently over in China, the legalizing of Bitcoin as a viable form of currency could see a massive rush by the Japanese people into exchanging their Yen or Dollars for Bitcoin, causing the price to skyrocket even higher than it is today, while also removing supply out from the general marketplace.  Because according to the original programmers, only 21 million Bitcoin will ever be created (mined), and the Japanese population could easily co-opt the entire supply if just 20% purchased just one Bitcoin apiece.

Gold soars up $20 and dollar falls as President Trump brings Europe into the currency war

After spending the latter stages of his candidacy prior to the inauguration going after China's 'manipulation' of the Yuan, President Donald Trump has shifted gears and is now challenging Europe and their policies which he alleges are keeping the Euro undervalued, and affecting fair trade.

On Jan. 31 Peter Navarro, the top trade adviser and member of the Trump Administration, went directly after the heart of the EU's trade alliance by singling out Germany as the primary instigator in the continent's use of monetary devaluation policies to achieve unfair trade advantages.

The Trump administration just fired the first shot in the US-European currency, and thus trade, wars when Trump's top trade advisor Peter Navarro accused Germany of using a “grossly undervalued” euro to "exploit the US and its EU partners", the FT reported noting the comments are "likely to trigger alarm in Europe’s largest economy." News of the statement sent the EURUSD surging and the dollar tumbling to fresh 2 month lows. 
Navarro, the head of Mr Trump’s new National Trade Council, told the Financial Times the euro was like an “implicit Deutsche Mark” whose low valuation gave Germany an advantage over its main partners. While not necessarily novel - Germany has often been accused of being the biggest winner from a weak euro at the expense of peripherla Europe - his views suggest the new administration is focusing on currency as part of its hard-charging approach on trade ties, according to the FT. Furthermore, virtually assuring a deterioration in US-German relation, and in a departure from past US policy, Navarro also called Germany one of the main hurdles to a US trade deal with the EU and declared talks with the bloc over a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership dead. - Zerohedge
In response to the allegations, gold and silver soared to their highest intra-day move of 2017 as the yellow metal climbed back over $1200 per ounce on an early move of over $20.

Got Karatbars? Revaluation of gold and gold price may be only thing to save international trade

While most people have heard of Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, and Carlos Slim in the pantheon of global billionaires, very few outside the financial industry know the name of Hugo Salinas Price.  But for everyone who owns gold or silver, that name is someone you definitely want to become familiar with.

This is because Hugo Salinas is a strong advocate of a return to the gold standard, and has in recent years been working with the Mexican government (his homeland) to begin using precious metals in their monetary system.  And in a recent essay he penned at his blog Plata, Salinas Price lays out the foundation of a global revaluation of gold, primarily since it may be the only salvation for international trade as the ongoing currency war reaches its final days.

The current melt-down of the world's debt bubble is likely to continue in the course of the next months. The secular trend to expansion of credit has morphed into contraction and liquidation. It is my opinion that the new trend is now established and no action by any of the Central Banks (CB) that issue reserve currencies will do anything at all to reverse that trend. 
Sandeep Jaitly thinks that the desperate reserve-issuing CBs - the US Fed, the ECB, the Bank of England and the Japanese CB - may resort to programs of QEP, by which he means "Quantitative Easing for the People". This quantitative easing will mean putting money into the hands of the populations by rebates on taxes, invented make-work schemes or any other excuse to furnish the people with the famous "helicopter money", to get them to spend. 
As the present crisis deepens and given our experience with the way our so-called “economists” think, we can reasonably expect such programs to be launched. 
Nevertheless, the present trend of world economic contraction will not be reversed by any ad hoc program. The world’s expectations - positive for growth since WW II - have turned negative. This is an event of such magnitude that no “QE” will have any effect upon the final outcome: debt collapse. 
Whatever expedients are implemented, the final outcome of the unprecedented economic contraction in the world will have to be the revaluation of gold reserves, as desperate governments of the world resort to gold to preserve indispensable international trade. The revaluation of gold reserves held by Central Banks will be the only alternative for countries seeking to retain a minimum of international trade to supply their economies, whether they are based on agriculture, on manufacturing or on mining. 
We do not know the true amount of gold held by the world's central banks, because it is a closely held secret. However, we need not know that figure. Whatever gold there is in CB vaults will be sufficient, for the reasons we have given. 
Nor do we know at what price, in dollars, the price will be set, or how it will be set. 
However, given the truly astronomic amounts of debt in existence, a very high price will be necessary to "liquefy" i.e. make payable remaining debt, whatever the amount remaining after the purge which is now in process. The very high price of gold will mean that all debt instruments will be subject to large losses in terms of gold value. The revaluation of gold will reduce the weight of the present debt overhang upon the world. - Plata

(Smaug the Dragon from The Hobbit calls for a return to the gold standard)


So if the only real alternative for the crisis that is overtaking global economies
is to return to an environment where gold re-emerges as the foundation for currencies and trade, how can you protect yourself and even come out ahead when this system is implemented, and when gold is revalued to a value far above its current price?

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.

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?

Got Karatbars? Gold is a protection against currencies, and why China may be the one to open the floodgates

For more than five years, the global financial system has been weighed under by a currency war that shows no sign of stopping.  It is one of the primary reasons why central banks have resorted to zero or negative interest rates, and why countries like Japan have initiated a policy of endless QE.

But as we know in the gold markets since 2011, something or someone has been carefully creating a disconnect between the monetary metal and its checks against fiat currencies like the dollar.  And it is one of the primary reasons why gold prices have not only declined 40% from their all-time highs in 2011, but have also lost its luster to most investors who only see gold as a commodity to be bought and sold like a security or stock.


Yet over in China and Japan, gold is not manipulated by their government or their central banks, and is reflected fairly correctly in price in relation to the Yen and the Yuan.  And as China mulls the proposition of devaluing their currency another 10-15% in the coming months, gold, more than stocks or bonds, is proving to be the best investment for citizens within the 2nd largest economy in the world.


Finally, the real purpose of the PBOC's exercise in FX management today was, just like in August, to fire a warning shot at the Fed's rate-hiking plans. Only this time the warning shot is far, far louder. 
In September the Fed postponed its rate hike as a result of China's devaluation. Will it do the same again next week? Because if China is about to unleash a 15% deval of the CNY against the entire world, expect a flood of Chinese FX reserves as the PBOC tries to control the glidepath of its currency, and avoid an all out collapse driven by soaring capital outflows. 
In other words, we are now right back where we were in mid-August, just before the bottom fell out of the market.
"The biggest risk in China is not really the economy," said Qian Wang, senior Asia economist for Vanguard Investments Hong Kong. "The real risk is, number one; the policy uncertainty, and number two; the currency. China is walking on eggshells."Chinese citizens, meanwhile, are anxiously awaiting tomorrow’s market open while mentally repeating the same three lines:
  •  Sure am glad I bought that gold last year. 
  • Wish I’d bought more gold last year. 
  • Wonder what I’ll have to pay for gold next week… - Zerohedge





So with China signalling a new devaluation, and the U.S. Federal Reserve speaking on Friday of not only retracting the interest rate hike they did in December, but perhaps even taking rates down into negative territory, how can you protect yourself from this paradigm of currency devaluation that will not end until many if not all of these currencies end in collapse?

With the very thing that as we see above increases in value as paper money declines.  Gold.

And the best way to buy it and protect your wealth in any currency 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.

Is the ‘flight to safety’ in treasuries really the result of Fed mopping up China’s dollar dump?

Over the past two weeks we have seen the U.S. 10 year treasury roller coaster from a level of 2.2% on Aug. 17, to a low of 1.95 a week later.  Yet since that time the 10 year has moved back above the ‘Mendoza line’ to its current position of 2.12%.  And of course, the common response in the mainstream media to this drop in yield and spike in buying was due to a ‘flight to safety’ as traders exited the equity markets and moved into bonds.



But when you look at the entirety of the markets, and especially in relation to how U.S. bonds are affected by global economies that hold treasuries as dollar reserves, something interesting begins to emerge, and perhaps this time the old standby of a ‘flight to safety’ is really the Fed buying massive amounts of bonds to mop up what China is dumping as they work to put a tourniquet on their own economy.

Get ready for next move against dollar as IMF delays Yuan inclusion to SDR for a year

On Aug. 19, the IMF announced that they were delaying the decision to include the Chinese Yuan (RMB) into the SDR basket of currencies for at least one year, or until Sep. 30, 2016.  The decision to exclude the Yuan in next year’s basket content was determined a week ago, but the announcement to go forward with allowing China to stabilize and strengthen its currency was only released today.
IMF executive board extends current composition of its Special Drawing Rights for nine months until Sept. 30, 2016.
IMF staff had recommended extending the current basket, which was due to expire Dec. 31, to minimize disruption if yuan added.
Board decision gives SDR users “sufficient lead time to adjust in the event that a decision were to be taken to add a new currency to the SDR basket”
Board made decision Aug. 11IMF says in statement - Bloomberg via Zerohedge

China’s devaluation just the start as countries rev up for next leg of currency war

The currency war in the global financial system has been going on at varying strengths since 2009, and in full gear since 2013 thanks to Japan and Abenomics.  However, with the world’s most important industrial economy showing signs of a severe crash, or at the very least an acute slowdown, China’s new devaluation policy is expected to ratchet up the currency wars to a whole new level.
For years the Chinese Yuan has been pegged to the dollar, and has ebbed and flowed as the dollar both collapsed between 2008-2009, and strengthened to its current level of 96 over the past year.

But with deflation and a slowdown in consumer spending signaling that the world is now in a new recession, China had to act to protect their lifeblood of production against a myriad of economies that have already devalued their currencies multiple times in the past three years.

Is Japan’s economy now to the point that they are preparing for war?

On Jan. 14, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe approved a new military budget that is the largest since the end of World War II when the nation was de-armed by the U.S. according to the treaty ending the war, and provisions from their new Constitution.  And with military expenditures expected to be around $42 billion, or 5 trillion yen, observers must ask the question of whether Japan is seeing the writing on the wall and preparing for war since their economy has reached the point of no return.

BRICS economic alliance creates plan for new political alliance

Global geo-politics are controlled today by a combination of the American empire, and a conglomeration of nation states that make up the European Union.  For more than 400 years, these Western powers have been instrumental in determining the destiny’s of 90% of the world, whether through colonialism, militarism, or economic dominion and trade.

But as the world has grown smaller thanks to technology and the ability to communicate information at the speed of light, former second world countries are finding the yoke of Western servitude to be not just stifling, but quite often, life threatening.  And in the midst of an era where the national interests of the U.S. and the EU quite often lead to political change and economic destruction within sovereign countries (Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Cyprus, Greece, etc…), these lesser nations are recognizing, and even hailing the advent of a new economic and political order, which would allow them to perform their sovereign duties as they see fit, and not through the compulsory demands of nations which see them simply as means for their own political ends.

Guerrilla Economist: All Western banks are defaulting right now

On Oct. 28, economist and former head trader for the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) issued a update on the state of the global financial system in which he declared that that every country is in a currency war frenzy, and that all institutions in the Western banking system are defaulting right now.

"What I am now going to state is going to shock you, the reason that every one in the west in involved in currency debasement/ currency manipulation is this: THE ENTIRE WESTERN BANKING SYSTEM IS DEFAULTING!!!! Yes you read that correctly, the west can no longer pay the piper and now they are going to debase their currencies in order to walk away form their debt obligations, making it easier for them to pay off their debt..."
