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?

U.S. Congresswoman submits bill to tie cryptocurrencies to terrorism but real threat is fear of Bitcoin supplanting the dollar

On May 18 U.S. Congresswomen and member of the House Counterterrorism and Intelligence subcommittee Kathleen Rice, pushed through a bill that would call for a threat assessment of all cryptocurrencies and their ties to terrorism and the funding of it.  However according to cybersecurity experts, the real reason for the this bill is the growing fear by Washington that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies could, and are supplanting the dollar and other global sovereign fiat currencies.

US Congresswoman Kathleen Rice has introduced a bill tasking Homeland Security with conducting a threat assessment for terrorists using virtual currencies such as Bitcoin, despite evidence terrorist groups use such payment methods is scant. A cybersecurity expert has told Sputnik the real fear is Bitcoin supplanting national currencies. 
"We will see an increase in terrorist groups using it as more and more members of the public use it. More people know about it, more and more websites accept it as a payment method, it's becoming increasingly pervasive in the digital world. It can be used for good or bad, but I hope it'll become a universal currency. There is no central authority with Bitcoin — no banks or financial organizations control it, the people who own it do — and users can bypass a lot of financial services fees as a result," he adds. 
Still, Dr. Curran believes there's "no doubt" Bitcoin will be the currency of the internet in years to come. It will become more regulated, and politicians will progressively view it as a threat to mainstream financial institutions and currencies as it becomes further accepted. Moreover, he's certain it'll be difficult if not impossible for governments to truly put a stop to it — the internet has no borders, and national bans won't be effective. - Sputnik News
For all intents and purposes, nearly every war is a 'banker war', or the need for the U.S. to ensure that dollar hegemony reigns supreme over the global financial system.  And when you look at the true underlying reasons behind the ousters of Libya's Muhmmar Ghaddfi, and Iraq's Suddam Hussein, and the insurgencies of Ukraine and Syria, then you would find that every one of them either had to do with protecting the dollar as the global reserve currency, or protecting the petrodollar system that is being supplanted by Russia's new pipeline projects.

Thus anyone who doesn't believe that as Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies rise in both popularity and use that the U.S. government will not take steps to ensure their failure or encapsulation, is someone who has not paid attention to history and the willingness of Washington to use any means necessary to protect their monetary dominion over the rest of the world.

With Congress unwilling to provide tax relief to Americans, join the new tax revolt whenever you dine out

There used to be just two primary things that were true in life... those being death and taxes.  But ever since the start of the new millennia, we can add a third one to that list, and it is the incompetency of government to ever do anything that is beneficial for the American people.

Case in point.  Ever since President George Herbert Walker Bush lied to the the people and said, 'read my lips, no new taxes', every single President since has at some point increased the burden of the American people to provide more and more money to feed the monster that is Washington.

Fast forward to 2017 and President Donald Trump's tax cut proposal.

Using the Reagan model of 'trickle down' economics, Donald Trump is seeking to pass a massive tax cut for corporations, small businesses, and in a minor sort of way, for the Middle Class.  However there has been no real efforts made by Congress in the first 100 days of Trump's Presidency to actually write legislation to accomplish this, and it is unlikely to occur since the House and Senate are unwilling to accept a decline in their own revenue largesse even as the American people find themselves completely tapped out in credit and savings.

Ironically, it took less than this for the colonists to rebel against Britain when they passed the Stamp Act and demanded the colonists use only their fiat currency to conduct commerce back in 1776.  And with some Americans paying upwards of 60% of their income to Federal and State governments (California), the ballot box no longer provides a means of redress.

Thus it's time to use a little ingenuity and begin a legalized form of tax revolt.

In a recent event from the state of Missouri last week, a customer dining out at a restaurant decided to 'stick it to the government' and crossed out their expected 'tip' for the servers who provided him his meal, and instead wrote on a piece of paper that the money that would have formerly gone for a tip be given instead to the server as a gift.


Now why is this significant?  Because tips are taxed by the government as wages, while gifts are not taxable if they do not exceed a certain monetary threshold.
  • You can give up to $14,000 to any number of individuals this year without triggering gift taxes.
  • Anything above the annual limit has to be reported and counts toward your lifetime exclusion.
In addition, this is also a way to respond to the growing demand for a boost in the minimum wage without needing a law to accomplish this, and to also help keep lower income workers receiving welfare benefits for those who need it.

The rich have always skated by not having to pay their full share of taxes by simply incorporating themselves where they have hardly any income, and where most of the money they receive is taxed under the umbrella of much lower capital gains rules.  In addition, these elite can deduct almost anything which lowers their taxable earnings even more.  And if both the state and Federal governments simply see the American people as entities solely existing to provide them money so they can take us into unnecessary wars or fund wasteful social and green agendas, then the only way to fight back is to find our own loopholes in the tax code... starting with the elimination of tips and instead replacing them with gifts.

MIT Professor believes Bitcoin or other crypto-currencies could save financial system

The original idea and concept of Bitcoin was to create a de-centralized form of currency that could not be manipulated, devalued, or financialized by governments or central banks who throughout history have used the power to print money as the means to accumulate wealth and power at the highest levels.  And indeed, the very nature of the world's most current fiat monetary construct has done just that as less than 20 individuals hold more wealth than half the world's population.

This is why gold and silver are and were so important in the past because left to their own devices, they provided individuals, communities, and even nations a stable and often un-inflationary form of money that not only grew productivity, but kept a check on corrupt governments until they seized the power to either 'clip', or replace gold and silver outright.

But in the 21st century the world is rushing headlong into a new paradigm of digital money, and at stake is the age old battle over who controls the ability to 'print' that money.  And according to a Professor at MIT, the advent of Bitcoin or some other decentralized crypto-currency could be the answer to both improving and perhaps even saving the financial system.

Image result for bitcoin can save the financial system
Simon Johnson, a professor at MIT’s Sloan School of Management, says some form of digital currency could fundamentally improve the financial system.
“How do you feel about the way that our existing financial system operates?” Johnson asked the audience at the Business of Blockchain conference, an event organized by MIT Technology Review. “I myself have a lot of concerns. The system we have is not robust—it almost collapsed in the fall of 2008 in the United States, the most sophisticated financial market in the world.” 
In theory, a cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin might make the financial system more stable by providing a way to monitor and trace transactions. Indeed, it may be no coincidence that the paper outlining the concept for Bitcoin was released in 2008, during the financial meltdown. The open-source code for the currency was released several months later, in 2009. Bitcoin was invented by the pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto, whose identity remains a subject of great speculation. 
Cryptocurrencies might also remove many of the hurdles that make it harder for poorer people to use the financial system, even in advanced countries, Johnson said: “It is absolutely shameful and really embarrassing that so many people in the United States—one of the richest counties in the history of the world—do not participate in the formal financial system." - Technology Review
In reality a completely Bitcoin based financial system would not be feasible as the 21 million total bitcoins ever to be mined would not fully support both a government and consumer's needs for over 200 countries.  However, a combination of an international trade currency, which would be designated for use by banks and governments only, coupled with a crypto-currency like Bitcoin for use by consumers and businesses that would not be allowed to be traded in financial markets, could solve many of the inefficiencies and corruptions that inevitably spawn over time from the use of a singular form of money.

As former President Calvin Coolidge once said, "The business of America is business", but what he really should have meant was that the government has no place in interfering with business and free markets.  And in a free market, money is determined to be what consumers and producers agree for it to be, and without interference from corrupt men and women who control the means of its production.

The empire strikes back as IRS expands hunt for Bitcoin users who don't report capital gains taxes

Sovereign governments around the world have instituted a number of different programs and processes to deal with the rise of crypto-currencies, and the use of ones like Bitcoin to function outside their controlled monetary systems.  In China for example, new guidelines were put in place for Bitcoin exchanges that now require identity checks and monitoring of all transactions.

But the U.S. has chosen a different path, and it stems from a ruling in 2014 by the U.S. district court of jurisdiction in Southern New York where judges determined that Bitcoin was an security rather than a currency, and as such was to be treated like an investment requiring the filing of capital gains taxes on the holder's tax returns.

And while little actual investigation or pursuit of individuals failing to file their Bitcoin profits with the IRS has taken place over the past two to three years, that appears to be changing now with the government's monitoring of exchanges like Coinbase and their ramping up of their intention to go after individuals who do not report their Bitcoin capital gains profits on their annual tax returns.

Image result for bitcoin government
The Internal Revenue Service revealed new details about its investigation into tax evasion related to bitcoin, filing court documents that suggest only a tiny percentage of virtual currency owners are reporting profits or losses in their annual returns. 
The new documents, filed Thursday in San Francisco federal court, come in the midst of a closely-watched legal fight between the IRS and Coinbase, a popular service for buying and selling bitcoins that hosts over a million customer accounts. 
The dispute began last year when the IRS issued a sweeping summons for Coinbase to turn over a vast amount of customer data, including every customer account as well as detailed transaction records. 
Coinbase claimed the IRS demands are illegally broad and refused to comply, which in turn led the IRS to file a federal lawsuit last week to enforce the summons. - Fortune

Newest banker scheme: tax on withdrawing money from your bank accounts

Despite the fact that taxpayers bailed out banks in the U.S. and around the world following the 2008 financial crisis, the 'masters of the monetary universe' did little to show appreciation for the people that saved them from bankruptcy due to their own greed and corruption.  And even with the ability now to borrow money from central bank discount windows at or near zero percent interest, a large number of banks chose to impose new fees on their customers under the guise of re-capitalization.

Ironically, when companies impose a charge on individuals for a service it is known as a fee, but when a government does the same it is instead called a tax.  And that is exactly what India, Greece, and perhaps soon even the United States is, or is planning to do, for people who choose to withdrawal cash out of their bank accounts in the future rather than using digital constructs to perform commerce.

war-on-cash
Greek banks have proposed a series of measures to combat tax evasion, strengthen the electronic transactions and limit the use of cash in the economy, and as KeepTalkingGreece.com reports, one of the measures proposed is a special tax on cash withdrawals. 
Bankers reportedly stress that cash money can easily and largely be channeled in the black economy. Therefore, a tax on cash withdrawals will drastically reduce cash transactions and by extension the black economy. 
The bankers suggest that also credit and debit cards as wells as new technologies enabling cash-less transactions even for small amounts  and mobile phones can be used for the purchase of a transport ticket or a newspaper at the kiosk. 
The bankers proposal to the government also includes: 
-Mandatory use of cards or other electronic payment networks for every transaction with professions where there is strong evidence of tax evasion or where cash is mainly used [ like bakeries, kiosks, street vendors and chestnut sellers?]. 
-Mandatory use of cards or electronic networks for transactions above a certain amount [this measure is already in effect]. 
-Reforming the tax system by introducing a revenue-expenditure system. Households or professionals will only be taxed on the amount of income that is has not been spent. In this way, households and professionals will have a strong incentive to seek receipts for any expenditure in order to increase their expenditure and reduce the tax amount they will have to pay. 
-Obligation for all businesses and regardless of their size to pay electronically every salary and wage. (source: Kathimerini via Liberal.gr) - Zerohedge
Over in India, Prime Minister Modi has already implemented a 45% transaction tax on deposits that the government arbitrarily believes come from illegal or 'black market' commerce.  And these two countries (India and Greece) are not the only nations with plans to impose a tax on cash withdrawals as this has been in the works for a few years in the halls of the Fed and Congress.

Greece is the first country to push for a carry tax on physical cash. It won’t be the last. This policy has been floating around in Central Banking circles for years. The fact that it’s now being openly promoted only proves how desperate the elites are getting about the state of the financial system. 
Watch, the moment things turn south in the US in a big way, similar proposals will start cropping up here too.

Got gold? Today the new SEC rule goes into effect allowing the government to move your non-invested cash into Treasuries

Back in 2014 the SEC passed a rule that now goes into effect on Oct. 14 where investors and pension funds who do not have their money in a security can summarily have their cash reserves moved into U.S. Treasuries rather than money market funds.

While designating this mechanism to only be used during extreme 'adverse conditions', the fact that the global financial and banking systems are teetering on another 'Lehman Moment' means that the government could co-opt your money at any time, and is a backdoor way into moving your retirement and pension assets into Treasury debt instruments to help fund the government.

Image result for government wants your retirement and pensions
The big day has finally arrived: starting today, as previewed repeatedly over the summer, the SEC's 2a-7 money fund reform adopted in 2014 officially require many prime money market mutual funds (those that invest in non-government issued assets such as short-term corporate and municipal debt) to float their net asset value. More importantly, these prime MMFs are allowed to delay client withdrawals under adverse market conditions. 
The rule aim to prevent the sort of chaos that hit the money market after Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.’s 2008 bankruptcy, which helped spark the financial crisis. The goal is to give investors a way to monitor a fund’s health by tracking its fluctuating net asset value, and to contain the fallout that could be caused by many investors cashing out at once, the SEC wrote in the final rules. 
As as result, many Prime MMFs are and have been converting their assets to government funds, not buying CDs anymore and moving into Treasurys and agencies. As the chart below shows, nearly $1 trillion in assets have rotated out of prime money markets into government funds, as a result sending Libor rates through the roof, to the highest level since the financial crisis, with consequences that have yet to be determined. - Zerohedge
But this scheme gets even more diabolical as the new SEC rules also allow for the government to DELAY in giving you or your broker the cash funds moved into Treasuries, thus making it so you no longer have control over your own money.
Take the case of Simon Gore, treasurer of budget carrier Spirit Airlines, who has had a relatively simple job over the past several years when he took tens of millions of dollars of company cash and parked it in money-market funds. Gore told the WSJ he has moved money out of some funds and is considering his options for depositing the more than $1 billion of cash and investments on Spirit’s balance sheet. 
Gore had previously put almost all of Spirit’s cash in prime money-market funds. Now, he has shifted most of it to money funds that invest in debt issued by the federal government or agencies such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which aren’t affected by the new rules. He said the prospect of a floating net asset value - which also means client withdrawals can be delayed - caused him to think twice about prime funds. Besides facing the risk of losing money under the new rules, companies would have to record changes in the value of their cash, creating accounting headaches.
Ever since the 2008 financial crisis the government has been seeking ways to co-opt the nearly $17 trillion in individual retirement, pension, and mutual fund monies, and this, like Barack Obama's MyRA scheme, is just another backdoor way for them to do so.

How much longer can you trust your future to Wall Street or elected officials who have proven themselves to be some of the most fiscally irresponsible entities in history?

Why invest in gold? Because contrary to popular belief, the government can end the insolvent Social Security at any time

Prior to FDR's creation of Social Security in 1935, people relied upon their families to take care of them in their retirement years.  And in fact, there were no expectations of a 'benevolent government' using the General Welfare clause of the Constitution to do for them what was their responsibility since the beginning of time.

But with the advent of Social Security, the government opened the door to a whole myriad of programs to virtually take care of people from cradle to grave, and has used the power of taxation to force everyone to pay into it whether they wanted to, or even needed to at all.

It is now 80 years later following this momentous act passed during the height of the Great Depression, and because of a combination of Demographics and Congressional greed, the program is insolvent and by some analyst's measures, could be completely bankrupt as early as 2017.  And the real question that has to be asked is, is the government responsible for providing these retirement benefits no matter what, or can they simply dissolve the program at will if they decide they can no longer afford to pay for it?

The answer unfortunately may scare some people, because the question itself was resolved back in the 1950's by the Supreme Court.

Most people see Social Security as a contract between themselves and the government. You pay money into the system, and the system pays it back at a later date—guaranteed by law. 
But nothing could be further from the truth… 
You have no choice when it comes to paying your Social Security tax. It comes out of your paycheck automatically. 
But did you know the government isn’t under the same rigid contract? 
In fact, by ruling of the United States Supreme Court, the federal government is under no obligation to pay you a Social Security check. 
This is the clear precedent set in the case of Flemming v. Nestor
Ephram Nestor was an immigrant from Bulgaria. He moved here in 1918 and paid Social Security taxes from the very beginning of the program in 1936. 
In 1955, when he retired, Nestor began receiving Social Security checks for $55.60 per month. 
But, just one year later, Nestor was deported. Turns out, he’d been an active member of the Communist Party in the 1930s, giving the U.S. government grounds to kick him out. 
When he was deported, his Social Security checks stopped. Nestor sued the U.S. government, arguing that, since he had paid money into the program, he had a right to those benefits. 
The Supreme Court ruled against Nestor, saying the government had the right to terminate Social Security at any time. 
The people who sign the Social Security checks sum it up this way: 
[Nestor] appealed the termination, arguing, among other claims, that promised Social Security benefits were a contract. In its ruling, the Court rejected this argument and established the principle that entitlement to Social Security benefits is not a contractual right. 
Takeaway: You have no contractual right to Social Security. 
That historical precedent means it has the power to cut Social Security anytime it wants. - Casey Research
So while politicians deceive everyone into thinking Social Security is guaranteed to them for the tens of thousands of dollars they have paid in taxes to be eligible for a retirement payout, the truth of the matter is Congress's only obligation is their right to tax you as they see fit, and even to keep on taxing you whether they pay out social security benefits or not.

And it is why nothing has ever changed in life... and it is you and I who are responsible for our own retirement savings programs.

India to start tracking cash purchases of gold by its citizens

India's central government is implementing a new policy to deter citizens from purchasing gold using cash.

Under the guise of stopping 'black market' gold purchasing, jewelers are now being required to document cash purchases of gold by anyone, and not to allow annual purchases using cash of over Rs 2 lakh, which is around $3000 U.S. dollars.

Every gold purchase+ made through cash will now have to be tracked by jewellers, irrespective of the bill size, as part of the central government's drive against black money. 
Jewellers are to keep track of the total cash purchase+ made by a customer's during the year, to check if it exceeds the threshold limit of Rs 2 lakh. What's more, the income tax department will keep a close tab on each jeweller to see if any such purchase is going unreported. 
According to current rules, a jewellery buyer will have to produce PAN card+ only when the purchase is over Rs 2 lakh+ . But PAN card is not mandatory for purchases below Rs 2 lakh. "This has led to scopes for a section of people who keep purchase below Rs 2 lakh to avoid any surveillance. Instead of buying gold in bulk, they go for repeated cash purchases and much of it gets unnoticed," said Priyabrata Pramanik, additional director (Income Tax, intelligence and criminal investigation). Such incidents of evading regulatory radar has prompted the central government to ask jewellers to be more proactive. - Times of India
India has been using capital controls such as these to put pressure on its people to deter gold buying in lieu of alternative consumer spending using the Rupee currency.  This of course has led to a massive black market smuggling operation to try to bring more gold into the country.

Gold is the enemy to fiat currencies and the current global financial system which has allowed governments to expand monetary supplies far beyond fiscally responsible levels.  And the biggest fear to central banks today is that people will suddenly awaken to their schemes of quantitative easing and negative interest rates, and decide to rush headlong into the metal causing a financial collapse that would not only destroy most global currencies, but also bring down governments that rely upon infinite money printing to protect their establishment, and keep themselves in power.

Complete pot legalization may be here in America as early as Aug. 1

Although most generations living today have little or no idea behind the real reasons and purposes for the ‘war on drugs’, the fact of the matter is that is has and always will be about money, and those who control it.
Cannabis or pot is a drug that has a long history in the United States, and was even used as a relaxant by our Founding Fathers as written in several annals from that time period.  And like the way Great Britain forced opium on the Chinese back in the 19th century to help fund their vast global empire, the American government did virtually the opposite and banned such natural narcotics as a way to enrich pharmaceutical companies through medicinal monopolies, and to enlarge law enforcement agencies through the incarceration of users.
But this may all be changing as on Aug. 1, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) will be reviewing narcotics currently on Federal registries known as ‘schedules’, and there is a very good probability that Cannabis will be removed as a schedule 1 drug and placed on a different list that contains current legal substances like alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine.

For workers, forced minimum wage hikes equals unemployment

Following a number of U.S. municipalities forcing through legislation to raise the minimum wage either towards or to the goal of $15 per hour, early results from these controversial policies are in.  And as expected by most logical analysts, the artificial push in higher wages is leading to massive layoffs and higher unemployment.
In Washington D.C., where the district supports the seat of American government and where the minimum wage was raised from $8.25 per hour to $11.50, on average half of all D.C. employers have laid off workers since the legislation for higher labor costs was implemented.

Gold is not just a check and balance against bad currencies but also in reining in corrupt politicians

Few people today know that when the Federal Reserve was forged a little over 100 years ago, the central bank had many important restrictions that kept it in check from becoming the debt and inflation creating behemoth it is today.  One thing in particular that the private bank was restricted from doing was in purchasing sovereign bonds such as the U.S. Treasury.

But with the advent of a World War rushing towards American shores in 1916-17, the same politicians who voted in the Fed suddenly saw an opportunity to increase their coffers and passed new legislation which allowed the central bank to buy U.S. debt, and this began the cycle which would eventually see the dollar lose over 98% of its purchasing power a century later.

Fast forward to 1964...

The powers that be running the U.S. government following World War II (ie... the Military Industrial Complex) desperately wanted a new war after the Korean quagmire so they chose Vietnam as their next area of aggression.  But to do so would require massive amounts of money the government didn't have, so they coaxed the Fed to begin buying more debt to fund the campaign.

This of course led to a devaluation of the currency which culminated in our exporting inflation to other countries since the dollar was the global reserve currency, and those nations were forced to buy and use the dollar in international trade.  As a result, nations like France said ENOUGH, and began to demand gold for their dollars, which in turn led to a monetary crisis in which President Nixon was forced to remove gold from out money supply to stave off insolvency.

In the end, gold was never the cause for recessions, depressions, or stagnating economic growth, but rather it was the corrupt nature of men who demanded more than was necessary to run the government who destroyed the value of the dollar for consumers and producers alike.

Which brings us to an interesting dichotomy in the 2016 Presidential election cycle.  Of the remaining three primary candidates vying for the White House, one is a bought and paid for shill of the banks and the debt based system, one has a basic understanding of the corporatism that has taken over the government, but his solution is simply to create more debt, and the last one has a vast understanding of debt probably more than any candidate in recent history, and that candidate understands money better than all of them.

And that individual is also being recognized by the World Gold Council as being good for gold and the future of gold prices.

Donald Trump is great for gold. 
Or, at least, the possibility of his winning the presidential election in November is, according to Greg Collett, the World Gold Council's director of investment products.
The council sponsors the SPDR Gold Trust, the largest exchange-traded fund in the world that is backed by gold. 
The possibility that the presumptive Republican nominee will win the general election could heighten the type of concern that drives investors to invest in the metal as a haven.
"He's very unclear in his policies, and uncertainty tends to make people say, 'Maybe I should have something a little bit in gold,'" Collett told Business Insider on Wednesday. 
He continued: 
If he's elected, this time next year, what does the country look like? Who knows? Who knows if companies can do business with China or Mexico, [or] if we're like rounding up people and deporting them, who knows? 
That sort of weighs on people's investments, except for gold. It helps gold. 
Trump has come out in support of the gold standard, which effectively pegs the value of currency to gold. - Business Insider
The bottom line is that besides the voting booth and the 2nd amendment, gold as money was one of the most important articles the founding fathers put into our system of government to act as a check and balance against a corrupt and tyrannical government.  And it is why the powers that be desperately want to suppress its price, and why for the common man it is the most important solution to bringing about a return to both limited government, and prosperity.

Who needs Bernie? Americans spend more on taxes than on food, clothing, and shelter

Independent/Democratic candidate for President Bernie Sanders has been running on a platform of not just tax the rich, but pretty much tax everyone more to pay for his $18 trillion program of full blown Socialism.  But what the old man from Vermont who never worked an honest job in his entire life is failing to see is that as Americans rush towards tax day less than a week from now, they already give away to government agencies more in taxes than they spend each year on food, clothing, and shelter…
Combined.
This year, Tax Freedom Day falls on April 24, or 114 days into the year (excluding Leap Day).
Americans will pay $3.3 trillion in federal taxes and $1.6 trillion in state and local taxes, for a total bill of almost $5.0 trillion, or 31 percent of the nation’s income.
Americans will collectively spend more on taxes in 2016 than they will on food, clothing, and housing combined.
That last statistic is a huge sore point with me.
How can anyone argue that we are not a socialist society when the government takes more of our money than we spend on food, clothing and housing combined?
What they are doing to us is deeply wrong and it is fundamentally un-American. -Theeconomiccollapseblog

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.

CFR President acknowledges that America’s massive debt will lead to the end of the dollar as global reserve currency

While only a small number of Americans actually understand that the Council on Foreign Relations is one of many institutions that act as the ‘power behind the throne’ for the U.S. and other Western governments, what is most important for the people who reside in these nations under their control is when they publicly disclose policies or agendas that will play an important role for their futures.  And on April 7, the current President of the CFR may have provided a glimpse into that future when he spoke to Congress and emphasized that the days of the dollar as the global reserve currency may be coming to an end due to the massive debt the U.S. has undertaken to try to sustain both the economy, and global hegemony over the world’s financial system.

New documents released show Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission was created to protect criminal banks

What do the Warren Commission, the 9/11 commission, and the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission all have in common?  They were formed by the government to protect the actual criminals involved in these crimes and instead scapegoat others to try to appease the public.  And thanks to new documents released from the commission created following the 2008 Credit Crisis, we see that not only did the Obama administration fail to indict criminals from the banking sector who defrauded the American people, in many cases they even abetted their crimes in a quid pro quo masquerade of fines and payola.
And of course this led to then Attorney General Eric Holder, a Wall Street lawyer with massive ties to the banks and entire financial industry, to make the fallacious claim that the banks were ‘took big to jail‘, and ignored FCIC recommendations for prosecution in favor of small fines that allowed the participants to never answer for their crimes, and in fact, to keep on perpetrating even more.

Donald Trump is the Jared Vennett from The Big Short

The meteoric rise of Donald Trump onto the political spectrum has confused, flustered, and even astounded an establishment who believes that they have programmed the masses enough to always vote and accept their way of leadership, no matter how far into chaos these leaders have taken us.  And despite the fact that Trump has a history of flip-flopping on issues to accommodate what he feels the public itself is thinking on and below the surface, every time the mainstream feels he goes to far in his rhetoric or actions he keep gaining more support from the people.
And yet there is perhaps a parallel to Donald Trump’s cult of personality inside a fictional character named Jared Vennett from the movie, The Big Short.  And it is not necessarily the integrity of both men that is enticing to those desiring deep down who want to change the way things on Wall Street and in Washington are going, but it is their message that so many have been afraid to ask or act upon due to herd mentality and fear of humiliation that is leading many to jump on their bandwagon.

Rope a dope: As Obama signs gun control actions, most Americans find government the problem, not guns

In George Orwell’s famous novel 1984, the concept of changing the definition of words to their opposite was the prime way to make people malleable to the will of the government.  Terms such as War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, and Ignorance is Strength are just some of the programming done by tyrannical governments to acquire allegiance from people.
In the real world, this type of programming is being done in such measures as President Obama’s new gun control Actions, which throw away all real data and instead make gun ownership an emotional issue, similar to political correctness.  But perhaps in an even bigger diversion, the government is trying to make guns an issue in the eyes of the public when in fact, it is the government itself that is the biggest issue on the minds of Americans.
In a new Gallup Poll out on Jan. 4, the most important problem facing America is not guns, which ranked 19th out of 23 categories, but the government itself, and the inability of government to function correctly and to deal with the problems facing America financially, socially, and geo-politically.

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.

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.

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.
