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?

Immediately following Brexit results, google searches to 'buy gold' soared 500% as investors broke towards only real safe haven

One of the primary reasons that gold shot up to $1940 following the 2008 Credit Crisis and subsequent stock crash is because long standing safe havens like currencies, bonds, and real estate no longer provided an outlet during a time of financial crisis.  And while these three asset classes eventually recovered between 2011 and 2016 thanks solely to central bank interventions, when the next crisis or black swan would come as it did on June 24, monetary conditions were so levered up that they once again were unable to act as an outlet or safe haven for one's wealth once the carnage began in nearly all markets.

And this showed up in a most powerful way as immediately following the referendum vote in the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, searches on google for the terms 'buy gold' shot up over 500%.

According to Google, the number of internet searches for the phrase "buy gold" spiked by 500% after the Brexit results trickled through around 5am. Investors flocked to the safe haven asset during Asian trading while the pound plummeted to a 31-year low. 
Today, as is customary after the fact, everyone was euphoric on gold: "gold could rise to $1,400 whilst other precious metals such as platinum, offer attractive fundamentals," said James Butterfill, head of research & investment strategy at ETF Securities. Virtually every other investment bank followed suit and even Goldman came out, when the traditionally goldophobic bank had no choice but to raise its gold price target following today's meteoric gold surge. 
Which is great, however all of it was, as noted,  after the fact. 
The truth as all those who buy gold after the devaluation learn, is that for gold to be a store of value and preserve purchasing power it has to be acquired before some catastrophic, devaluing event, which as yesterday's Brexit showed, tends to be utterly unpredictable. - Zerohedge
Sadly, Americans and most Westerners tend to wait until after the fact to prepare themselves for a crisis, even with days, weeks, or months of advance warning that the disaster was on the horizon.  And whether that crisis occurs from nature, war, financial or any myriad of other inevitable events, those willing to prepare in advance will not only be sufficiently protected before it happens, but will also be able to afford their preparations at much cheaper prices when the sudden rush into commodities like gold leave the majority out in the cold as supplies and prices become out of reach.

Investors moving from Junk to gold

For those who live and breathe in the investing world, they know that the bond markets are much bigger than the stock markets.  And while a decline or even collapse in equities is a bad thing, it doesn't hold a candle to the economic destruction that can come from the same results in the bond market.

For many years following the 2008 credit crisis, and subsequent move by the Fed to zero interest rates, bonds have been a primary safe haven for banks, investors, and even sovereign governments, especially to foreigners looking to eek out a return in a wildly speculative market climate.  And with the search for yield at all costs helping to create a derivative 'weapon of mass economic destruction', the question few in the financial community have asked is, what would we do when the unwinding of bonds and derivatives comes?

Well, it appears one of the answers to this is the rush into gold, and as the unwinding of junk bonds begins in earnest, many are seeing the precious metal a viable safe haven for what is coming next.



As Bloomberg reports, the withdrawals from equity and credit funds highlighted the lack of faith in the rally that helped stocks briefly erase their annual losses last month. Equity traders have remained on the sidelines, with volume down in recent weeks as investors sought safer assets such as gold. 
The S&P 500 just suffered its biggest two-week retreat since February as signs of slowing growth in the world’s largest economy mounted. Worldwide stock ETFs lost $12.6 billion in the four days through May 5, wiping out more than six weeks of inflows, as the MSCI All-Country World Index capped its worst week in three months. 
“The market is becoming more cautious and using ETFs to allocate tactically. We’ll probably continue to see more flows into gold and less into equities.” 
The $5.3 billion pulled from State Street’s SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust represented more than 40 percent of the total withdrawals recorded in the first days of the month, according to data compiled by Bloomberg tracking funds of more than $100 million. Underscoring the flight from risk assets, BlackRock Inc.’s iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF also saw outflows as traders yanked $2.3 billion from it. 
Instead, they poured more than $1 billion in the SPDR Gold Shares and almost $540 million in the iShares TIPS ETF, which tracks inflation-protected Treasury notes. - Zerohedge

As gold replaces the dollar as the world's new safe haven, the U.S. currency's chances of collapse are skyrocketing

Since the beginning of the year there has been not just a reversal in market sentiment for gold and silver, but a complete sea change in what is the right safe haven to move one's assets into.  Prior to January of 2016, the U.S. dollar was by far the currency in which central banks and foreigners put their money to protect against their own monetary policies of devaluation.  But as gold broke through its five year Bear market technicals in January, the dichotomy between the rise of the precious metal and the decline of the dollar has become much more profound.

And in an interview today with esteemed statistician John Williams, the creator of ShadowStats.com said that not only are foreigners dumping their dollars in increasing levels, but the direction of this trend has the potential to collapse the dollar as trillions in currency holdings are being sent back by nations who no longer have confidence in the global reserve.
We have started to see selling pressure on the dollar.  It has been inching lower.  It’s down year to year now. . . . The selling is going to intensify, not only with large central banks, but with corporations that will be beginning to dump their Treasury holdings. . . . Nobody wants to be the last one out the door when you have a panic like this.  It’s not a panic yet, but the potential certainly is there.” 
Williams also says, “The dollar will blow up, and when I say blow up, it will collapse. There will be panic selling of the dollar, and that will intensify the inflation.  The problem is they don’t have a way of avoiding it.  If they could somehow get the economy back on track, they would have some room to work, I think, but the economy has never recovered.  That’s being seen now in these revisions.  At the end of this week, we are going to see bench mark revisions to retail sales. . . . So, you are going to see some downside revisions to the retail sales.  You already have it with industrial production, and now you are going to have it with retail sales.  We are very close to turning negative with the first quarter GDP . . . We are in a recession now, and they would be inclined to call it that once they get a contracting GDP, and everything else is beginning to show that. . . . You are going to see a formal recession declaration not too far down the road.  It hasn’t happened yet, but it will.” - USA Watchdog

Gold responds favorably as Fed Chairman Janet Yellen shows central bank has no idea what to do for economy

Yesterday, Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen spoke at the Economic Club of New York and left monetary markets without direction, and investors rushing into safe havens outside the dollar.  In fact, while the Fed Head spoke contradictory words that the economy is both strong, and also uncertain in nearly the same sentence, the dollar reacted by selling off against most currencies, and gold rose more than $20 by the close of trading.

Perhaps the telling point for Yellen was the fact that on Monday, the Atlanta Fed downgraded its Q1 GDP estimate to below 1%, showing that December's rate hike was a huge mistake in an environment of continuing deflationary recessions.

"the Atlanta Fed will have no choice but to revise its Q1 “nowcast” to 1.0% or even lower,which would make the first quarter the lowest quarter since the “polar vortex” impacted Q1 of 2015, and the third worst GDP quarter since Q4 2012. It means one-third of already low Q1 GDP growth has just been wiped away.” 
Moments ago the Atlanta Fed which models concurrent GDP, slashed its Q1 GDP from 1.4% (and 1.9% last week) to a number not even we expected: a paltry 0.6%, which would match the “polar vortexed” GDP print from Q1 2015
Should the number drop even more, will be the lowest since Q1 of 2014 when the US economy suffered its most recent contraction of nearly -1%. - Zerohedge

Marc Faber: As terror attacks continue to escalate, gold will be more desired than the dollar

In the wake of the tragic attacks in Belgium last week, and the growing number of terror events going on all over the world (including yesterday in Pakistan during an Easter gathering in a park), people as a whole tend to seek financial safe havens to mitigate fears that the economy will be adversely affected by the chaos and potential future consequences.  And according to economist Marc Faber over the weekend, many will seek to protect their wealth in gold rather than in strong currencies like the dollar.


"Overall, I’d be rather cautious about investments in equities..."  the editor and publisher of the Gloom, Boom & Doom report told CNBC's "Fast Money" traders this week.
However, "over the last 12 to 24 months, many sectors have had huge declines,...And I see here, there are some opportunities." 
"...US markets are over-valued." 
Faber also added that "I still think the mining sector has embarked on a new bull market." 
"[The U.S. dollar] is not a desirable currency," Faber explains, "I think the most desirable currency will be gold, silver, platinum and palladium." 
"I don't understand why the world is so enthusiastic about the US Dollar...in the long-run the US dollar will be a weak currency." - Zerohedge

Got Karatbars? Gold on the cusp of crossing $1200 an ounce as metal up over $100 in last 30 days

In just the past 30 days, gold has soared higher by more than $100 and more importantly, has broken through several key technical levels suggesting that the metal is now becoming a supreme safe haven for people bailing out of stock and bond markets.

In fact, gold has climbed $35 on Feb. 8 alone, and touched just below $1200 per ounce earlier in the session.
The bid for precious metals is accelerating. Gold just broke above its October 2015 highs to 8-month highs. Silver is also bursting higher, soaring above its 200-day moving-average. - Zerohedge

February 2016 gold chart


Feb. 8 gold chart

Pushing through, and closing above $1200 per ounce will trigger a great technical confirmation which should bring in more interest as gold validates a growing lack of confidence in currencies.


With gold shortages occurring in country's around the world, and the price now set for a huge takeoff, what options are available for you to protect your wealth and get in on the best performing asset of the new millennium?


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?

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.
