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?

Gold price hits 15 week high as it crosses over $1250 for first time since just after election

On Feb. 23 the gold price rose more than $10 per ounce to cross $1250 for the first time since just before Donald Trump won the Nov. 8 Presidential election.

Prior to that election, gold had once again crossed over $1300 per ounce, something it had not done since its massive move last June following the Brexit vote in the UK.  But with the outcome of the ultimate outsider winning the highest office in the land, markets dumped gold contracts en masse which would eventually see the price fall into the low $1100's.

But since the beginning of year, both gold and silver have slowly risen, and are nearing gains of around 10% in just the first two months of 2017.
Gold prices jumped Thursday, attempting to snap a string of three declines, as the dollar lost ground to chief rivals in the wake of a fuzzier-than-expected interest-rate assessment from the Federal Reserve. 
April gold GCJ7, +1.33% rose $10.80, or 0.8%, to $1,244.10 an ounce. A close at that level would mark the highest settlement for a most-active contract since Nov. 10, 2016, according to FactSet data. Thursday’s gain picks up on an after-hours Wednesday rise and dollar decline. Some metals traders read the Fed minutes out Wednesday as casting doubt on the timing and pace in future rate increases. - Marketwatch

Gold up over $1200 and crosses 50 day moving average setting the stage for a move in either direction

The gold price crossed an important psychological barrier in early morning trading on Jan. 12 that places the metal at a crossroads to either move extremely higher, or fall back if it fails to hold the key resistance level.

On Thursday gold went above $1200 for the first time since its severe beatdown following the November Presidential elections when bullion banks dumped so many naked shorts into the futures market that it was the equivalent of three years worth of mine production.  This led to gold falling below its 50, 100, and even 200 day moving averages until it settled at a bottom of around $1125.

Since then however, it has begun a steady climb back to $1200, aided by investors covering numerous amounts of short positions that in some cases went back to bad bets made during the time of the Brexit vote.

However now that it has breached its new 50 day moving average, it will take on some strong resistance that should it succeed in holding this price, will assuredly move much much higher as loss of confidence in global currencies will aid in the move once again towards gold.

As one can see from the daily gold futures price chart below, it breached the 30-day SMA of $1,161.82 with a strong bullish candle. The commodity will now face stiff resistance from expected selling pressure near $1,200, which earlier acted as a crucial support. Calls of $1,200 as support are still etched in my mind, but probably too much faith was put into that. The 50-day simple moving average of $1,200.98 will pose additional stress on the commodity. But I am optimistic, and with adequate time and patience, the metal can cross this bear's mansion as well. - Seeking Alpha

Moves up in gold and down in stocks over past 10 days signal the markets now believe in a strong Trump victory

For anyone who has taken the time to watch buying and selling activity in the gold markets over the past month, it was more than obvious that the takedown during the first week of October was both manufactured, and done at a time when the world's biggest physical market (China) was off for a national holiday.  And as such, once they returned gold has risen over each of the last four weeks back to above the $1300 support level.

But what is perhaps most interesting for the markets in general is the historic declines we have seen over the past 9 days in the Nasdaq and S&P 500, and the 7 days in a row for the Dow, where that measured amount of negative trading has not occurred since 1980.  And this is being attributed to the sudden shift in political winds where the markets now strongly believe that Donald Trump will win the election.

The S&P 500 ended lower on Friday for a ninth straight day, the longest losing streak for the benchmark index in more than 35 years, as investors stayed on edge ahead of an uncertain U.S. election. 
The tech-heavy Nasdaq also ended lower for a ninth-consecutive session, while the Dow industrials closed down for a seventh straight day. 
Investors have been unnerved by signs of a tightening presidential race between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump. 
Clinton had been thought to have a clear lead until the re-emergence last week of a controversy over her use of a private email server while secretary of state. 
"Investors are uncertain about the outcome of the election, and they have grown more uncertain since last Friday," said Walter Todd, chief investment officer with Greenwood Capital in Greenwood, South Carolina. - Reuters
The Donald Trump phenomenon is now being paralleled to that of the UK's earlier Brexit vote from back in June, where going into the final day the markets bet heavily on a Remain outcome.  And when this did not happen following the vote, stocks, currencies, and bonds all fell drastically, and gold rose by $100 in a single day.

Some analysts are expecting more of the same come Tuesday, with equities falling by perhaps 1000 or more points on Wednesday and gold going up $100 - $150 if Trump prevails.  But this may be just the beginning of a much larger financial crisis since central banks are too hamstrung to deal with another black swan type event.

Gold soars and stocks fall as markets now forecasting a Trump victory

For the first time since the early October beat down of gold, the precious metal crossed over $1300 per ounce as revelations from the FBI on re-opening the cast against Hillary Clinton has pushed the markets into believing that Donald Trump has a strong shot at becoming the next President of the United States.

In Monday's trading, gold rose over $10 and stocks fell to the point that the 18,000 level was breached on the Dow for the first time since August.  And in the pre-market today that trend is continuing as gold is up another $10 while stock futures are down another 39 points.

LA Times
In a study released last week the GFMS team at Thomson Reuters concluded that while a Clinton win would not have a dramatic impact on the gold price, a Trump triumph will put pressure on financial markets and the dollar, prompting investors to seek the relative safety of gold: 
According to GFMS a Trump victory could spark a rally to $1,400 and maybe even $1,500 in our view while a win for Clinton would likely see prices ebb lower. - Mining.com

First Brexit and now the failed coup in Turkey helping to keep the gold rally forging ahead

Long before the June Brexit vote and the failed coup attempt in Turkey that took place on Friday, gold has been climbing since the beginning of the year and remains the best performing asset in the global financial system.  But it is events such as these, coupled with many more taking place in Italy, Japan, and even the United States, that will keep the gold rally forging ahead and ensure that the price will rise and overtake its all-time high before the end of the year, or early into 2017.

In fact, even after six days of the gold price falling due risk on speculation in the equity markets thanks to rumors of new quantitative easing and 'helicopter money', the price shot up $10 alone in after-hours futures when word hit that a coup attempt was taking place against Turkish President Erdogan.

The Turkish lira fell to a three-week low versus the US dollar in late trading on Friday in New York due to news of the coup in Turkey, which likewise spurred safe haven bids for 
US Treasury bonds, paring their earlier losses. 
The Turkey lira was last down 5.0 per cent at 3.0300 lira per dollar. 
“Have you seen the latest headlines on Turkey? That probably has something to do with it. This dollar surge is very much headline-driven,” said Vassili Serebriakov, currency strategist at Credit Agricole in New York. 
Spot gold prices turned higher, reversing earlier losses in late trade on Friday in New York on the Turkish news. Gold was up 0.23 per cent at US$1,337.73 per ounce at 4:42 p.m. New York time (4:42 am Hong Kong on Saturday, July 16), moving off intraday lows of $1,322. 
“Gold has been frog-marched $10 higher over the last hour when it became apparent that there has been an attempted coup in Turkey,” said Tai Wong, director of base and precious metals trading for BMO Capital Markets in New York. - South China Morning Post
Whether it is a banking crisis going on right now in Italy, the upcoming U.S. Presidential elections, the growing threat of war over the islands in the South China Sea, or global bond yields now encompassing over $14 trillion in sovereign debt, the biggest winner from all of this will continue to be gold.  And as each day passes, more and more investors and individuals are turning towards the metal as the only real protection from economic and geo-political chaos.

As the Fed jawbones recovery and normalizing interest rates, debt defaults at highest levels since December

Nearly all alternative media economists have gone public to state that it is both unlikely, and irrational for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates now, and in the near future.  And this despite the central bank’s recent jawboning on mainstream television of a potential rate hike as early as next month.
But the problem is that the Fed and other central banks have waited too long, and gone too far in their zero interest rate policies, and quantitative easing programs.  And with the odds of a rate hike shooting up since the middle of May, debt default levels, especially for credit default swaps on the 10 year Treasury, are at their highest levels since the Fed raised rates a quarter point back in December.

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.

Got Karatbars? Presidential candidate Ben Carson calls for gold backed money while China prepares for new gram based gold

Last week, one of the top presidential candidates for the Republican Party, Dr. Ben Carson, spoke on the economy, America's national debt, and the dollar.  And in a response during an interview with NPR, the second leading candidate in the race for the Presidency projected his support of America's once gold backed money, and stated that the only reason we have this crushing debt on our balance sheets is because the government moved to a purely fiat currency that allows for unlimited money printing by the central bank.
"[T]he only reason that we can sustain that kind of debt is because of our artificial ability to print money, to create what we think is wealth, but it is not wealth, because it's based upon our faith and credit. You know, we decoupled it from the domestic gold standard in 1933, and from the international gold standard in 1971, and since that time, it's not based on anything. Why would we be continuing to do that?” - Mises.org
In addition to his assessment that our purely fiat based money is the primary cause for our massive outstanding debt, Dr. Carson also attributed the Fed's inability to raise interest rates to the lack of a gold standard, which would have naturally caused the cost of money to become more expensive due to the government's abuse of their fiduciary responsibility.
"The question, then, is when gold actually does "want" to go up. And the answer is not when the economy would want it to. That's because the price of gold doesn't go up when the economy is overheating, and down when it's cooling off. If it did, then the gold standard would give us high interest rates when we needed them, and low interest rates too."
Yet Dr. Carson is not the only Republican candidate for President who sees the power that gold backed money provides.  His opponent, and current front-runner for the Republicans, also believes in the monetary value of gold, and has even accepted it as collateral for lease agreements in his office buildings by renters.


And while the U.S. continues to downplay gold as 'real money', and as a force to protect the integrity of paper currencies, one economic power in the Fer East is working towards changing how gold is not only valued, but how it is minted as well.  With the Shanghai Gold Exchange preparing to announce its own price discovery mechanism to the world before the end of the year, the leading physical gold market is also seeking to put an end to the Troy Ounce based system, and will begin minting gold in the form of grams and kilograms as a new standard to oppose the Western based model.
On 28 October, the Chinese central bank will launch their new 2016 gold and silver Panda coins. An interesting detail discovered by @BullionBaron is that these coins will not appear in one troy ounce size. Instead, they will be minted on a metric weight system with sizes varying from 1 gram up to 1 kilogram. The one troy ounce version of the gold and silver Panda coins are replaced with a coin weighing 30 grams. That’s slightly less than a troy ounce, which equals 31,1034768 grams.

The press release on the People’s Bank of China website mentions nine different sizes for the gold Panda and three different versions of the silver coin. All these coins have a 99,9% purity and will be produced with a limited mintage. For more details on mintage and the yuan face value, we refer to the press release on the central bank of China’s website.

Gold coins:  1 gram, 3 gram, 8 gram, 15 gram, 30 gram, 50 gram, 100 gram, 150 gram, 1 kilogram  
Silver coins: 30 gram, 150 gram, 1 kilogram - Market Update.NL


So as the two leading candidates for President speak highly about gold and of the need for gold backed money, and China prepares to change how gold is minted in the physical markets, how can you both profit and prepare from these two agendas, and protect yourself in a world that is changing?

The answer lies in a company called Karatbars



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

And as added perks to signing up with Karatbars, as a customer or affiliate, 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?

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