The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Did the Shanghai Gold Exchange force London to reveal its reserves and try to compete with a new physical market?

In late 2015, China opened up what would soon become the world's largest physical gold market, leaving both London and New York to hide behind their paper trading futures exchanges.  And as more and more action has moved into the Pacific Rim over the past year and a half, one has to ask the question if this is the reason why London suddenly chose to reveal their physical reserves last weekend, and with the intention of opening up their own physical market to compete with Shanghai?

In a move to increase transparency, London's gold bullion market is considering revealing the amount of bullion held in vaults within the city for the first time in its history. According to recent reporting by the Financial Times, this move would include gold bullion held by the Bank of England as well as other institutions. The leaders in the debate over transparency shifts are the London Bullion Market Association. Why might London be considering such a shift at this point in time, and what could it mean for the future of gold, both in England and around the world? 
According to the report, many of the largest banks around the world are pushing for gold to be traded on an exchange, a marked shift from the current bullion market system. The London Bullion Market Association argues that an exchange would work to convince regulators that "banks trading bullion should not have to face more onerous funding requirements." The reason that this shift is necessary, the Association feels, is that London gold is traded directly between sellers and buyers, meaning that essentially no data of those transactions makes it out into the broader analytical world. The Association has estimated that daily gold trades in London may total $26 billion, although that number is difficult to confirm and there are no official data points to cite. 
The Association believes that moving toward an exchange and documenting the transactions of gold bullion in the city will provide greater transparency. How it might affect the market and the gold bullion prices and trade levels in particular is a bit more difficult to say. If London moves to trade bullion through an exchange, will other cities or countries follow suit? Some analysts believe that this could be the beginning of a much larger trend. - Investopedia
In addition, it is rumored that Dubai is in the process of expanding their physical gold markets following January's inclusion of gold investments into Sharia Law Finance.  And with the potential of millions of new customers seeking to purchase physical gold rather than paper futures, it is likely that several markets will look to cash in on the New Gold Rush, and in doing so will have to forego the years of secrecy that they have cultivated in disallowing true audits of their gold reserves.

Fund manager who used to work with Soros sees 'absolute chaos' and death of the EU following European elections

Victor Sperandeo, a hedge fund manager who at one time worked in finance with George Soros, spoke out with King World News on the coming European elections and sees their outcome resulting in 'absolute chaos' for not only the European Union, but markets, economies, and currencies everywhere.

Victor Sperandeo:  “What people are underestimating is the upcoming election in the Netherlands on March 15.  A month later France is going to hold their election… 
And what is going to happen to the U.S. stock market?  People will stop buying U.S. stocks because the whole world is going to go into a depression.  There will be absolute f*cking chaos starting on March 15 and nobody is talking about it.  
The populist movement, which are people who have been f*cked, are moving away from the globalist movement.  And when 27 countries get their own printing presses back it will be chaos.  
I have been tempted to go 100 percent long gold.  It’s such a slam dunk that the world is in trouble.  The EU was built on France and Germany, so without France there is no EU.  Gold will be in extreme demand when this unfolds and that is why the gold market is already firming up.  Eric, I promise you there will be total chaos.”
Sperandeo's sentiments have been echoed recently by the World's best trends forecaster Gerald Celente, who was also recently interviewed by King World News.
Eric King:  “Gerald, the KWN the interview with Victor Sperandeo, who used to work with Leon Cooperman and George Soros, is going incredibly viral.  Sperandeo warned that within a couple of months there is going to be ‘absolute,’ and he used an expletive here, ‘f*cking chaos’ around the world.   
This guy is extremely well-connected, he has a fantastic reputation, he’s made a lot of money for a lot of people, and he oversees more than $3 billion.  What are your thoughts on what Sperandeo had to say?” 
Gerald Celente:  “Look, if Sperandeo is correct, we are gong to see the ‘f*cking chaos’ that he is talking about, and it’s going to be global…   
And it’s not (sometime) in the future, it’s (directly) in front of us.  Sperandeo is right on target.

As India's Reserve Bank works to create a cashless society using the blockchain, they are also looking to outlaw Bitcoin

There is a famous axiom that goes, don't steal as the government hates competition.  And this appears very much to be in play in the country of India where the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), or the nation's central bank, is working hard to bring about a cashless society using blockchain technology while at the same time issuing edicts to try to outlaw Bitcoin.

Last November, India's Prime Minister suddenly and without warning started to redeem currency bills from the public and the country's monetary system.  And in a speech given during his monthly address to the nation, he explicitly said his end goal was to bring everyone under a cashless or near cashless monetary system.

"I want to tell my small merchant brothers and sisters, this is the chance for you to enter the digital world," Modi said speaking in Hindi, urging them to use mobile banking applications and credit-card swipe machines. 
"It's correct that a 100 percent cashless society is not possible. But why don't we make a beginning for a less-cash society in India?," Modi said. "We can gradually move from a less-cash society to a cashless society." 
More than 90 percent of consumer purchases in India are transacted in cash, Credit Suisse estimates. While a smartphone boom and falling mobile data prices have led to a surge in digital payments in recent years, the base still remains low. 
Modi urged technology-savvy young people to spare some time teaching others how to use digital payment platforms. - Zerohedge
Fast forward to Feb. 5...

The RBI issued a statement and a warning on Sunday where the central bank acknowledged that they, along with member banks, are pursuing a digital monetary system to replace the cash economy with a digital system primarily using blockchain technology.  And one of their largest points of emphasis was to severely admonish the use of Bitcoin, which is in line with a similar warning they issued on the crypto-currency back in 2013.
“The RBI advises that it has not given any license/authorization to any entity/company to operate such schemes or deal with Bitcoin or any virtual currency. As such, any user, holder, investor, trader, etc., dealing with virtual currencies will be doing so at their own risk.”
The Indian government, as well as the central bank, are fighting a populist rebellion against their war on cash, and their push towards an all digital cashless society.  And Prime Minister Modi has continually issued policy edicts over the past few months in an attempt to try to halt citizens from dispensing of their currency in the forms of gold, jewelry, and even Bitcoin.

And although governments around the world for the most part have tried benign capital controls to slow down the use of Bitcoin, none as yet have actually considered the crypto-currency a threat, and have attempted to ban or outlaw its use by the people.

Until now.  And this should tell you that India's push to ban cash from the hands of the people is more a battle against freedom than it is a battle against corruption, money laundering, or even the spurious claim of 'fighting terrorism'.

Following Utah's new plan for sound money, Arizona ready to vote on bill that would make gold and silver legal tender

Last week we published an article in which the state of Utah was preparing to vote on making gold and silver once again legal tender, and eliminating the taxation of the metals.  This move of course is to transfer the perception and belief that gold and silver are not simply commodities, but actual money in accordance with the Constitution.

And now we can add Arizona to this movement as on Feb. 2, the state legislature completed debate over the same issue regarding gold, silver, and sound money, and is getting ready to bring House Bill 2015 (HB2014) to a floor vote.

An Arizona bill that would eliminate state capital gains taxes on gold and silver specie, and encourage its use as currency, passed an important House committee today. Final approval of the legislation would help undermine the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money. 
Rep. Mark Finchem (R-Tucson) introduced House Bill 2014 (HB2014) on Jan. 9. The legislation would eliminate state capital gains taxes on income “derived from the exchange of one kind of legal tender for another kind of legal tender.” The bill defines legal tender as “a medium of exchange, including specie, that is authorized by the United States Constitution or Congress for the payment of debts, public charges, taxes and dues.” “Specie” means coins having precious metal content. 
In effect, passage of the bill would “legalize the Constitution” by treating gold and silver specie as money. 
HB2014 passed the House Ways and Means Committee by a 5-0 vote, with four members abstaining. - Activist Post
The Constitution does not give states the right to coin money, but it does specify that they have the power to use gold and and silver as legal tender outside other currencies created and determined by Congress.  And as confidence in the fiat currency known as the dollar continues to wane, more and more states are preparing for the inevitability that the dollar will one day no longer be able to support the U.S. economy, much less the global financial system.

Was Donald Trump's inaugural emphasis on America First a signal that the government had changed via a coup?

On Jan. 20, much of the world was awoken to the shock that the 70 year reign of the neo-con and neo-liberal establishment may finally be over, and this could not have been more obvious than how Donald Trump, standing just yards away from the ringleaders, threw it in their face during his inauguration speech.

But even as historians for years will be trying to dissect both the overt and even subtle meanings hidden in many of his words, one emphasized phrase may have actually signaled that a coup had taken place within the government, and that those fighting against the cabal for more than 20 years had finally won.

America First.

Image result for america first

In an interview given this weekend on the alternative web program known as Silver the Antidote, guest Jim Willie started the show with a bombshell that if true, will change the course of America for decades.

When Dr. Jim Willie began answering questions about the new President and how he might intend to run the Oval Office, the good Doctor went directly to Trump's inauguration speech and keyed in on two particular words that have much more meaning than anyone can fathom.
Silver the Antidote: Can you explain what you said about the Trump cabinet being in a coup de tat? 
Dr. Jim Willie: Yes.  Back in 1995, there was an incident of a downed military aircraft in Alabama.  It was 1995 and there were seven Generals and one Admiral on board.  All were killed. 
Their agenda, was to bring impeachment charges against President Clinton.  This was just following the Sandia Labs (Los Alamos) scandal where apparently Clinton had sold weapon schematics... entire weapons plans for construction, diagrams, electronics to China for a fee. 
After the crash, Generals who were part of the movement, or who at least shared the sentiment toward impeachment of Clinton for treason, organized a movement called America First. 
In the ensuing 20 years, Clinton, Bush, and Obama fired over 500 Generals and Admirals.  The division was pretty simple... anyone loyal to the Constitution was fired.  I know that sounds very strange, but this is the direction the United States went for the last 20-25 years.  Anyone who remained called themselves the Loyalists, and it was loyalty towards the narcotics barons. 
The Bush family. 
500 retired Generals and Admirals publicly endorse Mitt Romney (America First organization?)
And thus these Generals and Admirals were elevated.  So when during the inauguration two weeks ago, the newly installed President Trump mentioned America First a few times, without a big reference for the background on what it meant. 
Donald Trump (Inauguration Speech):  Today's ceremony has very special meaning.  Because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington D.C., and giving it back to you... the People. 
You came by the 10's of millions, to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before.  From this day forward, it's going to be only... America First... America First. 
We stand at the birth of a new millennium.  Ready to unlock the mysteries of space.  To free the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries, and technologies of tomorrow.
When you take what occurred in 1995 at Sandia Labs, and then follow this into the organization created by hundreds of members of the U.S.'s General Staff after the mysterious downing of a military plane, you can see the makings of a war between those working within government who love America and hold their oaths as sacred, and those who sought to bring the United States into a one world government through globalism.

In addition, let's break down the key points spoken by President Trump around the time he emphasized and signaled the phrase, America First.

1.  Not transferring power from one administration to another, or one party to another.

This line is dedicated to the fact that there is no such thing as a two party system in government, but simply two heads of a single entity.  And over the past 24 years all three Presidents were intrinsically tied to the pursuit of globalism, as well as destroying the fabric of America through division, debt, and endless wars.

2.  Transferring power from Washington to the People.

This line represents power being taken from the Establishment and given into the hands of the organization that has been dedicated for the past 20 years towards returning America to a Constitutional government.  And that of course means the power is to return to the hands of the states, and in turn to the hands of the people.

3.  ... a historic moment, they likes of which the world has never seen.

In 1933 members of the business elite, including George Herbert Walker Bush's father Prescott Bush, attempted to hire General Smedley Butler to back a military coup in which the bankers would take over the government of the United States.  This coup failed because General Butler rejected it outright, and ensured the military would never support it, but the diagram of how to do this appears to have carried over in the 2016 election.

And look at how many Generals, ALL who were either fired or tied to the America First organization, are now intrinsic members of Donald Trump's cabinet.

4.  We stand at the birth of a new millennium... ready to unlock the mysteries of space... harness the energies and technologies of tomorrow.

This line is a direct reference to the secret technologies the Shadow Government, or establishment has unlocked that has been kept from the American people, as well as the world in general.  Anti-gravity spacecraft like the TR-3B, zero point energy, and perhaps even the secret technologies discovered down in Antarctica, which former Secretary of State John Kerry happened to be on the very day of Trump's inauguration.

Analyst Bix Weir has been saying for a number of years that the government is made up of two warring factions that populate most Federal Agencies.  He calls them the 'good guys' and the 'bad guys', and when you put his research together with Dr. Jim Willie's recent revelations, it is difficult to dismiss that Donald Trump's victory was in many ways a coup against the government.

Deutsche Bank apologizes to public in newspaper ad for rigging gold prices... now where is J.P. Morgan's apology?

2016 was the year that institutions such as Wells Fargo and Deutsche Bank lost a great deal of credibility over fraud that they conducted against customers, investors, and the overall markets.  And while Wells Fargo did their best to lie even to Congress about their creating millions of fraudulent accounts and credit cards without their customers knowledge, Deutsche Bank came clean and are now even offering an apology to investors in a national newspaper.
Deutsche Bank took out full-page ads in Germany's Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and Sueddeutsche Zeitung on Saturday, in which the country's biggest lender apologized for (getting caught) engaging in market manipulation and misconduct that has cost the company billions. In the ad, signed by CEO John Cryan on behalf of the bank's top management,the bank said its past conduct "not only cost us money, but also our reputation and trust." - Zerohedge

Yet even with all this, the markets have yet to hear from perhaps the greatest gold and silver manipulator of all.  And this despite the fact that a higher court earlier this week overturned a lower court ruling that had dismissed lawsuits against J.P. Morgan for their rigging of prices in the precious metal markets.

Appeals Court Overturns Dismissal in JP Morgan Silver Rigging Case 
  • US Appeals Court overturns Dismissal in Silver Rigging Case against JPMorgan
  • The Appeals court rejected Judge Engelmeyer’s claim that the plaintiffs did not prove JPMorgan made “uneconomic bids” in the silver forward’s markets.
  • New Discovery May Win the Case for against JPMorgan
Summary 
The New York 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled yesterday that District Court Judge Engelmayer was in error when he dismissed the Silver price rigging lawsuits against JP Morgan. The appellate court felt that Engelmayer’s dismissal reasons amounted to “impermissible fact finding” and placed too high of a bar in concluding that plaintiffs had not adequately plead their case. 
This reversal of the June, 2016 dismissal means the case will go back to the district court for further litigation. This also means the plaintiffs will ask for and receive more discovery. This can win the case for them. - Market Slant

IRS ready to begin revoking passports from Americans who owe large tax obligations

Back in 2012, Congress attempted to pass legislation that would revoke passport privileges from anyone owing more than $50,000 in unpaid tax liabilities.  And while this rider attached to the HB1813 Highway appropriations bill failed to pass back in 2012, it was once again put up for a vote and signed into law in late 2015.

However, the controversy behind using tax laws to keep Americans from leaving the country had kept the Obama administration from implementing it over the last year of his administration, but now that Donald Trump has taken office the IRS on Feb. 3 is ready to begin going after 'deadbeat taxpayers'.

President Trump's executive order on travel may be generating big protests, but an IRS missive on travel and passports may not go down too well either. More than a year ago, in H.R.22, Congress gave the IRS a new weapon to collect taxes. Tax code Section 7345 is labeled, “Revocation or Denial of Passport in Case of Certain Tax Delinquencies.” The law isn't limited to criminal tax cases, or even cases where the IRS thinks you are trying to flee. The idea of the law is to use travel as a way to enforce tax collections. It was proposed and rejected in 2012. But by late 2015, Congress passed it and President Obama signed it. 
Now, over a year later, the IRS has finally released new details on its website.  
If you have seriously delinquent tax debt, IRS can notify the State Department. 
The State Department generally will not issue or renew a passport after receiving certification from the IRS. 
The IRS has not yet started certifying tax debt to the State Department. 
The IRS says certifications will begin in early 2017, and the IRS website will be updated to indicate when this process has been implemented. - Forbes via Zerohedge
Which leaves the American people to ask the question... will the IRS use this draconian law to only go after Trump supporters and conservatives like they did in 2014 with Lois Lerner?  Or will they implement the law honestly, which means that the first individuals they should revoke passport privileges from are Al Sharpton and Congressman Charlie Rangel.

Oh, and not to be forgotten... Timothy Geitner.

Bill being introduced in Utah would open state up for using gold and silver as money while creating a state depository

On Jan. 27, legislators in the state of Utah introduced a bill that would not only recognize gold and silver as money, but would open the door for its use in both public and private commerce.

House Bill 224 (HB224) would encourage the use of gold and silver as legal tender, and set the stage for expansion of gold repositories in the state and authorize further study on several sound money policies.

A bill introduced in the Utah legislature would build on the state’s Legal Tender Act, creating a foundation for further action to encourage the use of gold and silver as money, and take another step toward breaking the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money. 
Rep. Ken Ivory (R-West Jordan) introduced House Bill 224 (HB224) on Jan. 27. The legislation would add several provisions to state law designed to encourage the use of gold and silver as legal tender. Passage would set the stage for expansion of gold repositories in the state and authorize further study on several sound money policies. 
Specifically, HB224 would authorize the investment of public funds in specie legal tender held in a commercial specie repository. Under existing code, “specie legal tender” means gold or silver coin and bullion. “Commercial specie repository” means an institution that holds or receives deposits of specie legal tender that is located within the state. Practically speaking, passage would give the state the option to hold funds in gold and silver instead of Federal Reserve notes. - Tenth Amendment Center

India's next monetary restriction is to limit the amount of cash allowed for transactions

The world's seventh largest economy has suddenly become a petri dish for monetary experimentation towards the end goal of bringing about a cashless society.

Beginning in November of last year, Prime Minister Modi banned the two largest denominations of their currency, causing utter havoc as 1.3 billion people scrambled to exchange their bills before a December 15th deadline.  This move was then quickly followed by capital controls which only allowed individuals to take out the equivalent of $60 per day from their bank accounts.

Then earlier this week the Modi government began compiling a study to create a universal basic income for every citizen in the country.  This of course would force everyone, even the several hundred million who don't have access to the internet, to become part of a cashless financial system.

And finally on Feb. 1 a member of Modi's finance office submitted a proposal that would make it illegal for individuals to use cash for purchases and transactions larger than the equivalent of $4500.

India's war against black money has led to several new policies and orders of late, one of which was announced by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Wednesday in his Union Budget presentation in the Parliament. 
The country has banned all cash transactions above Rs 300,000 (roughly $4,500) from April 1. 
This move follows last year's ban on high-value currency notes that had sucked in 86% of the cash in circulation and sent India's 1.3 billion people into a collective frenzy. - AOL Finance
