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?

No country for young American men

Remember when we were growing up and it was a rite of passage during high school summer breaks to get a job, and perhaps even buy our first car with those earnings?  Sadly today, this is no longer possible as the real consequences of Obama’s job recovery, coupled with the tens of millions of illegal aliens in the country over the past 10 years, have made youth unemployment a thing of the past.
At 41.3 percent, the July labor force participation rate of teens was the lowest for the month in the post-World War II period.
The teenage summer job has been going the way of telephone booths and the cassette tape for decades. The length of the downward trend has been masked by the fact that it’s hard to tease apart teen summer jobs from teen employment more generally.
Looking at the jump in the labor-force participation of teens in July over the average for the school months, it’s clear that summer jobs peaked in the mid-1960s and have been sliding since. - Bloomberg

BRICS bank’s purpose is banking for the people, not for oligarchs

A couple weeks ago, Russia Today did an interview with Dr. Sreeram Chaulia, who is the Executive Director of the Centre for Global Governance and Policy (CGGP) at the Jindal School of International Affairs on the significance and mission of the new BRICS bank and how it will be completely different than nearly all global financial institutions currently functioning in the West.
During his interview, Dr. Chaulia stressed the importance of how banking is expected to change within the scope of the BRICS coalition, and that unlike the IMF and World Bank missions that have been around for decades, the new BRICS bank will focus more on lending and development for the people, and less so for oligarchs, politicians, and other sovereign entities that have used these types of financial institutions for their own gains in the past.

Welcome to 2008: Dow drops more than 1000 points from its all-time highs

Early this morning, the Dow reached an interesting number as the market has now fallen over 1000 points from its all-time highs reached in May of this year.  And while this decline represents only a 5% drop in the market over the past three months, it is eerily similar to what took place just eight years ago when a 1000 point drop from the previous all-time high led to a stock market crash the very next year, and ushered in a liquidity and credit crisis that we have yet to fully recover from.
From 18,351.36 on May 19th, The Dow (cash) is now at 17,345… -Zerohedge

Australia begins looking at Bitcoin to become equivalent to paper money

As the world has gotten a front and center seat to the decline and collapse of the Greek financial system, one nation is seeking to change the way their economy views money.  And in a move that would test the legitimacy of digital currencies as a recognized medium for trade and commerce, Australia on Aug. 4 is pursuing the option of making Bitcoin on par with theirs and other currencies in both taxation and the purchasing of goods and services.

Leading Presidential Candidate Donald Trump cites gold better than cash despite manipulation in pricing markets

Back in 2014, Donald Trump put his money where his mouth was when he accepted gold as collateral for a lease at his New York City Trump Tower business complex.  Now a year later, Trump is the leading candidate for the Republic party to become President in 2016.



In fact, Donald Trump not only realized the value of gold as a currency and a viable form of money, he stated in the interview that gold is better than cash after seeing information provided to him by APMEX on how much devaluation has occurred with the dollar and in the monetary system since 2011 when the Federal Reserve commenced its programs of Quantitative Easing.

Ironically, the price of gold in relation to dollars has declined at the same time as the central bank has increased the money supply several fold, which without manipulation would be an economic impossibility.  And in a new report by the Comex on Aug. 3 the data shows that the bullion banks, through orders by the Fed, have forced down the true price of gold by a factor of over 124 times through their shorting contracts in the Comex, where there is no actual gold collateral to back them up.

Contrary to the false data being put out by the Federal government to promote an economic recovery that isn't occurring, the United States, as well as Europe, is in a full blown recession that is expected to be much harsher than the Great Recession that took place following the 2008 Credit Crisis.  Not only have more people been unable to find work following that economic downturn, but wages and good paying employment have for the most part been stagnant or themselves in decline.  And with the Fed having fired off all their bullets in an attempt to stimulate production and re-capitalize the financial system, their efforts have proven that they will be unable to handle the coming disaster that is projected by many analysts to be here as early as this September.

And as a result, financial professionals like Peter Schiff, who was one of a few analysts who predicted well in advance the bursting of the 2007 Housing Bubble and subsequent financial collapse of the following year, believes that right now is the greatest time in history to buy gold since it will be the only hard asset to prepare and protect oneself from a world where the dollar is no longer functional money.



But even with this analysis, how can the common person invest in an asset where for the most part, the price of even an ounce is more than they can afford?

The answer to this 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?

Minimum Wage: In the end, economics always wins out over emotion and stupidity

Now that several states and businesses have ceded to the masses and are beginning to institute large hikes in the minimum wage, the reality of economics and human greed is setting in almost immediately.  For years, Democrats, liberals, and and progressives have sought to raise the minimum wage for the unskilled worker as a means of appeasing their voter base, yet this argument has missed the point entirely since the problem has never been about wages, but about the devaluation of the currency.  And with the success of the activist led minimum wage movement having finally resulted in hikes of as high as $15 per hour, the consequences of not seeing the entire picture is leading many to abandon their newly acquired increases for a whole host of reasons that include: losing welfare benefits, envy by those with more education, skill levels, and achievements, and the newest reason… replacement by machines.

Obamanomics: Raise energy prices, kill American industry, and subsidize bankrupt foreign green energy companies

Remember Solyndra, Fisker Automotive, Evergreen Solar and 31 other green energy companies Barack Obama subsidized with billions in taxpayer money during his administration that have turned out to be either insolvent, or collapsed into bankruptcy?  Well, we can add another to this list, and just one day after Obama raised the bar on his Clean Power Plan that has accomplished two things during his administration…
The raising of energy prices for American consumers, and the killing off of U.S. industries in the coal sector.
On Aug. 4, President Obama’s growing ‘list’ added a foreign green energy company to the roles of taxpayer subsidized bailouts, and one that like the others, is headed to the scrapheap of insolvency.

Got Karatbars? Gold in play more than ever as collapse and money printing starting to hit high gear

Over the past three weeks we have seen an extremely volatile market where equities in China, Europe, and the United States have risen and fallen several thousand points on their major indices.  And as data from the housing sector, commodity sector, energy and consumer spending begin rapid declines, analysts are increasing their mantra that the global economy is heading towards either a collapse, or a very harsh crisis, and where central banks are now throwing away the rhetoric of rate hikes and starting to power up the printing presses to combat what they know is coming.

Which leaves individuals with few options to protect themselves from a similar situation which we saw from 2007-2010, and unlike that time period of major volatility, gold is no longer as readily available as it was before the Great Recession.

CNN Money’s Fear & Greed Index measures the amount of fear in the financial world on a scale from 0 to 100.  The closer it is to zero, the higher the level of fear.  Last Monday, the index was sitting at a reading of 36.  As I write this article, it has fallen to 7.  The financial turmoil which began last week is threatening to turn into an avalanche. On Sunday night, we witnessed the second largest one day stock market collapse in China ever, and this pushed stocks all over the planet into the red.  Meanwhile, the twin blades of an emerging market currency crisis and a commodity price crash are chewing up economies that are dependent on the export of natural resources all over the globe.  For a long time, I have been warning about what would happen in the second half of 2015, and now it is here. - Economic Collapse Blog

Yet besides just the declines in stock markets, housing prices, and commodities, layoffs are increasing by a huge margin going into the end of the summer slowdown.  Just this week bellweather company Walmart introduced major layoffs of employees as new minimum wage laws and the global decline in retail spending are leaving businesses little choice but to cut back workers.

So with this in mind, and with expectations rising that the Fed and other central banks will soon be printing money to support growing illiquidity in the global economy, what do top analysts say is necessary to protect yourself from what is coming?

This is undoubtedly a global story and I have not one scintilla of doubt that the western central banks have set us up for an even bigger version of the 2008 Great Financial Crisis/Recession - but this time rock bottom interest rates and large fiscal deficits will mean only one thing; QE will be stepped up to such a pace that you will hear the roar of the printing presses from Mars.

Gold is a must-have holding in that world. - Albert Edwards, Societe Generale


To be protected from all contingencies, the answer lies in a three-fold plan of preparedness.  Cash, Physical Gold, and offshoring wealth outside the banking system.  The first two can be accomplished on your own, and with the help of a local bullion dealer or coin shop. 

No institution is safe for all can be closed by decree, including credit unions. This is true of safe deposit boxes as well. They may not confiscate it, but they can deny access. PLAN B should be an amount of cash that is enough to live on for at least one month if not three months insofar as basic essentials, not mortgages, etc. Effectively this is food money and gas for the car. Gold coins will not help in this case, nor will silver coins, for we are not talking about trying to preserve wealth; this is the emergency stash for living purposes in case you need CASH, which is recognized by everyone. Try explaining a silver quarter to a teenage clerk who has no authority to accept a quarter for more than a quarter. Precious metals will be more of an underground economy of barter; it will not be useful at the local supermarket.

Also, keep in mind that cash could come in handy in a computer failure, whereas you cannot access a bank, exchange, etc. just to survive for there could be a scenario where not even plastic credit cards or debt cards would offer any help. - Armstrong Economics

But for the third leg of this preparation, the solution 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.

The next step in China determining gold prices initiated as LME accepts Yuan in contract purchases

For owners of physical gold who have been frustrated with the manipulation and falling prices over the past four years, the day of reckoning is slowly coming upon them.  Beginning a few months ago when the London Gold Fix committee invited China to be a member of the daily price fix mechanism, the next step in having price determination move from the West over to Shanghai and Hong Kong is underway as on July 28, the London Metals Exchange (LME) ruled to allow Yuan to be used to settle gold and other commodity metal contracts.
In fact, with a Hong Kong factor purchasing the LME three years ago, it was inevitable that metal contracts would eventually be open for RMB settlement.

Bernie Sanders: Meet the new Marxist, same as the old Marxists

While the Donald Trump phenomenon has made it popular to finally be allowed to ask the questions millions of Americans have been afraid to ask since the advent of political correctness, on the other side of the political ledger another candidate has stepped up to challenge the Progressive status quo.  And yet as independent Bernie Sanders creates new and refreshing discourse to compete against the old guard of Hillary Clinton, the sad truth about the Senator from Vermont is slowly rising to the surface.
And that is, he is just as much a Marxist and European Socialist as the rest of the Democratic party.
In a speech given on July 30 just outside Capital Hill, Senator Sanders called for a single payer system of healthcare that parallels those used in the rest of the ‘industrialized world’ (Europe), and where it would run like Medicare under the complete supervision and control of the Federal government.
