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?

Vault 7 Wikileaks revelations look like something straight out of a Jason Bourne movie

They say that the establishment uses Hollywood and other media platforms to drop hints on programs they are involved in, or things they want to slowly desensitize the public on to prepare them for the day when paradigm shifting events will be revealed.  And whether this is in regards to a dystopian future where there world is run by corporations rather than by sovereign governments (Tekken, Highlander 2), or where technology replaces human labor in many if not all facets of society (I, Robot), the fact is that much of what the future reveals for society has already been imagined or purposely pushed into the mainstream through the use of books, movies, and other media.

So when on March 7 Wikileaks unveiled its newest and perhaps most earth shattering data dump on the activities of the CIA, one could not be far off in believing they were watching a Jason Bourne movie coming to life through the information held in Vault 7.

Operation Treadstone through Operation Iron Hand

One of the revelations made in yesterday's Wikileaks data dumps was the fact that the CIA used their consulate in Frankfurt Germany as an operations center for cyber-hacking programs that quite possible even included renditions .

In addition to its operations in Langley, Virginia the CIA also uses the U.S. consulate in Frankfurt as a covert base for its hackers covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa. CIA hackers operating out of the Frankfurt consulate ( "Center for Cyber Intelligence Europe" or CCIE) are given diplomatic ("black") passports and State Department cover. 
The instructions for incoming CIA hackers make Germany's counter-intelligence efforts appear inconsequential: "Breeze through German Customs because you have your cover-for-action story down pat, and all they did was stamp your passport" - Zerohedge

Renditions against civilians, including a journalist from the Guardian Newspaper

In the third installment of the Jason Bourne series, a journalist from The Guardian newspaper had stumbled upon the secret and illegal programs being done by the CIA in regards to Treadstone.  And through their massive data mining and surveillance of all communications in the UK and other places around the world, they pieced together who the reporter was, and subsequently ordered his death.

Now flashback four years ago to June 18, 2013 when Rolling Stones reporter was killed in a car accident when his vehicle suddenly and without warning accelerated to nearly 100 mph and where it appears someone had taken over control of his car's electronic system to have him killed while 'looking' like an accident.

And what was Michael Hastings investigating at the time of his sudden death?  The CIA's Director John Brennan.
A day after Hastings’ death, Robin Abcarian of the Los Angeles Times reported Hastings had been investigating CIA Director John Brennan at the time of his demise. Within hours, her colleague Brian Bennett contradicted her story claiming Hastings had been researching Florida socialite Jill Kelley instead. 
A few days later, LA Times reporter Andrew Blankstein debunked Bennett’s article and confirmed Hastings had been investigating CIA Director John Brennan at the time of his death. Although Bennett’s article is full of false information, the editorial staff has refused to make any corrections. 
Less than a year before Hastings’ death, Wikileaks posted a series of hacked emails taken from the private intelligence firm Strategic Forecasting (Stratfor), including an email stating, “Brennan is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists.” - Free Thought Project
And of course now we now from the Wikileaks data from Vault 7 the CIA has perfected malware that is able to not only take control over a vehicle's electronic system, but that it allows the agency to commit assassinations without detection.
As of October 2014 the CIA was also looking at infecting the vehicle control systems used by modern cars and trucks. 
The purpose of such control is not specified, but it would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations.
CIA breaking the law by spying on, and conducting operations against U.S. citizens on domestic soil

In nearly every Bourne movie the CIA at certain points was conducting operations not only on U.S. soil in violation of their charter, but also against U.S. citizens whom they determined to be a threat either to the United States itself, or to the secrecy of their illegal programs.  And in the third Bourne movie we find several U.S. citizens who had been summarily killed without due process.

In 2013 the liberal Washington Post expressed outrage after the revelation that the Justice Department had investigated the news gathering activities of a Fox News reporter as a potential crime in a probe of classified leaks.  The reporter, Fox News’ James Rosen and his family, were part of an investigation into government officials anonymously leaking information to journalists. Rosen was not charged. However, his movements and actions were tracked. 
* Also in 2013, members of the Associated Press were also a target of the surveillance.  The ultra liberal New Yorker even noted that “In moderate and liberal circles, at least, the phone-records scandal, partly because it involves the dear old A.P. and partly because it raises anew the specter of Big Brother, may well present the most serious threat to Obama’s reputation.” 
* Sharyl Attkisson reported her personal computer and CBS laptop were hacked in 2014. This occured after she began filing stories about Benghazi that were unflattering to the Obama administration.  A source who checked her laptop said the hacker used spyware “proprietary to a government agency,” according to an article in the New York Post. - The Black Sphere
Additionally, one has to wonder if the one or more CIA insiders who provided Wikileaks this treasure trove of information didn't represent in part the character of Jason Bourne, who grew a conscience after waking up from the programming he had endured in becoming a covert operative and trained assassin.

They say truth is stranger than fiction, but many times the idea of what eventually becomes fact was dreamed up somewhere in a plot line of a movie, or the storyline of a book.  And it is amazing how often bombshell revelations like this new one from Wikileaks can mirror something dreamed up in Hollywood or at Barnes and Noble, unless those books and films themselves were produced by the very individuals and agencies who would eventually be discovered to have done exactly what those movies implied.

Ron Paul to speak to Arizona legislature to help push through bill to make gold and silver legal tender

On Wednesday March 8, former Congressman and Audit the Fed champion Ron Paul will be speaking to the Arizona Senate Finance Committee regarding Bill HB2014, and the benefits of making gold and silver legal tender in the state.

HB2014 encompasses two key components regarding gold and silver.  First, it recognizes the metals as legal tender in accordance with the Constitution of the United States, and second it would remove any state capital gains taxes on the sale of these metals, making it easier for Arizonan's to begin the process of using gold and silver as money now, or in the near future.

Image result for ron paul gold standard
Audit the Fed is not the only focus of the growing anti-Fed movement. For example, this Wednesday the Arizona Senate Finance and Rules Committees will consider legislation (HB 2014) officially defining gold, silver, and other precious metals as legal tender. The bill also exempts transactions in precious metals from state capital gains taxes, thus ensuring that people are not punished by the taxman for rejecting Federal Reserve notes in favor of gold or silver. Since inflation increases the value of precious metals, these taxes give the government one more way to profit from the Federal Reserve’s currency debasement. 
HB 2014 is a very important and timely piece of legislation. The Federal Reserve’s failure to reignite the economy with record-low interest rates since the last crash is a sign that we may soon see the dollar’s collapse. It is therefore imperative that the law protect people’s right to use alternatives to what may soon be virtually worthless Federal Reserve notes. 
This Wednesday I will be in Arizona to help rally support for HB 2014, speaking on behalf of the bill before the Arizona Senate Finance Committee at 9:00 a.m. I will also be speaking at a rally at noon at the Arizona state capitol. I hope every supporter of sound money in the Phoenix area joins me to show their support for ending the Fed’s money monopoly. - Ron Paul Institute

Bitcoin vs. gold? How about a new crypto-currency that will be backed by gold

As the USD price of Bitcoin reached and then surpassed the USD value of gold last week, there has been a great deal of discussion over which is a better form of wealth protection to own.  In fact, both Bitcoin advocates and gold bugs alike agree at the foundation that both are better alternatives to holding one's money in fiat currencies like the dollar or euro, and in financial institutions that are only solvent because central banks have been printing money to prop them up.

But this is where the similarities end as at their core, one is no different than all sovereign based fiat currencies created and backed by nothing while the other is a physical tangible asset that has a 5000 year track record of being used as both money, and a globally recognized store of wealth.

So the questions that have to be addressed regarding the rise of Bitcoin at the present are; is Bitcoin actual money, is it a viable medium of exchange, does it function as a store of wealth, and lastly, does its volatility make it more of a speculative investment rather than a currency able to be used in all types of commerce?

Yet rather than try to argue and debate each of these points regarding the future use and acceptance of Bitcoin, what if the future of crypto-currencies was to actually back them with something tangible?  And that is exactly what is now emerging between a U.S. and Australian company as the two have created a new crypto-currency called OZcoinGold that provides all the decentralized and secure features that are intrinsic with most other forms of digital money on the Blockchain, but it is also being backed by physical gold at a ratio of 1 oz to every 100 OZcoins.


A US company, in partnership with an Australian publicly listed mining company, will launch the world's first crypto-currency backed by gold. www.ozgld.comThe launch will be at the South By Southwest (SXSW) on March 10th, 2017 in Austin, Texas. 
The creation of OZcoinGold, a crypto-currency developed on the 3rd Gen. blockchain, was conceived by CTO Joh Breytenbach when he realized that capital intensive public listed commodity and resource companies experience excessive expenses when raising capital for expansion as well as high regulatory restrictions and high loan costs. 
Further Ira stated "An advantage to the owner of OZcoinGold is that gold is purchased at the regular Gold price Benchmark, thus ignoring the Bid - Ask variation, which can be significant." 
The value proposition is that the gold mining company has a proven reserve of 600,000 ounces of gold under the international geocode which is sufficient as a security over any financial instrument. Further "assayed reserves" are estimated at more than 10 million ounces of gold. The mine has given OZcoinGold security over 100,000 ounces of this gold reserve. 
The OZcoinGold is issued in the ratio of 100 OZcoinGold per one ounce of 24 karat gold. So each ounce of Gold backs one hundred OZcoinGold coins. - Yahoo Finance

RMB internationalization could soon get major boost as desperate EU looks to bail out financial system with Yuan bonds

After a modicum of success in expanding the RMB's use outside of China when their currency became accepted into the IMF's SDR basket of currencies last year, the Yuan has since seen a slowdown for internationalization due in part from capital controls they instituted to try to restrict a growing occurrence of capital flight.  But in an interview given on March 5 by the head of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), that may soon be changing as the financial body responsible for protecting the stability of the Eurozone suggested that the next round of 'Quantitative Easing' may involve bonds denominated in Yuan as the foundation for bailing out banks and other financial institutions.

The head of the organization charged with safeguarding financial stability in the eurozone said he does not rule out issuing Chinese yuan-denominated bonds to fund the rescue of European nations and institutions. 
"[Issuing European Stability Mechanism bonds in yuan] is possible," Klaus Regling, managing director of the ESM, said in a recent interview with the Nikkei Asian Review. He said the institution was preparing to issue dollar-denominated bonds in the fourth quarter of this year -- the ESM's first non-euro bond issuance -- but added that other currencies remained an option. 
"We are legally allowed to issue in all currencies," he said. "As a young institution, it is a big step to do our first non-euro issue ... and it seems to make sense from the market side to start with the U.S. dollar. But it is entirely possible that we move into other currencies that are attractive from the market side." - Asia.Nikkei
The European Stability Mechanism (ESM) is Europe's equivalent of the U.S.'s Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF) in that it acts as a neutral party, able to step in and fill any monetary needs for the financial system.

If the EU is now looking towards the Chinese Yuan as a much better asset and currency to sell to fund and bailout European financial institutions in the future, then this will go an extraordinarily long way in fulfilling China's goal of internationalizing the Yuan, and moving it towards becoming an equal shareholder with the dollar as one of the world's primary reserve currencies.

How does J.P. Morgan's trading desk have 0 losses in two years? Short mining stocks then crash metal prices to cover

According to a recent report out by Zerohedge, J.P. Morgan's trading desk had one of the most incredible, and impossible win streaks ever seen on Wall Street.  In fact, not only did they not have a single losing trade in 2016, but between 2012 and 2016 they only had two singular losing trades out of billions if not hundreds of billions conducted in the HFT sphere.

Thus the question one has to ask of course is how is this possible since the the average win ratio for even the best individual trader is around 58%?  And in an interview on March 3 with Peak Prosperity's Chris Martenson, the long time financial analyst lays out one of the many scenarios used by the investment bank through their shorting of mining stocks, then crashing metals when the markets are closed by dumping billions of dollars of naked shorts on the Comex to skim the profits, and then cover their positions.

Image result for jp morgan manipulating silver market
Rory Hall:  I want to get back to something we we're talking about a moment ago, and that is silver.  And how do you see yesterday with this silver beatdown, and where silver was raped for better lack of the word, by more than 4%... there was something like $2 billion worth of digital contracts thrown at it in about a half an hour.  What's your take on that? 
Chris Martenson:  There is a fairly complex take on this, but let me make it simple here... it's fraud.  And it's not just in the silver market.  I follow silver and gold closely so I'm aware of this there, but I can tell you it happens everywhere now because the big banks long ago won the battle and captured the SEC under Mary Jo White, and it's been a complete disaster of lack of regulation. 
So here's is the focus on how and where this theft, this fraud is committed.  The big commercial banks that are out there... J.P. Morgan, HSBC, all the big bullion banks that are playing in this market.  They go out there and take the opposite side of this trade, and they are rapidly getting shorter, and shorter as the price of silver is going up.  And taking the other side of that bet are only people I can assume are named Charlie Brown, because they fall for it everytime.  And the banks have done this a dozen times over the past five years. 
But here's the tell... as silver was rising the last three days before that big smackdown, the miners... the silver miners in particular were very weak.  In fact, they were going down. 
So when you see the stocks going down at the same time the metal's are going up, you know that someone is aggressively selling those... they are shorting the stock, selling the stocks short. 
So they build a huge naked short position in the mining stocks, and within days BAM!  And the next thing you know the price of silver gets hammered... monkey hammered in the aftermarket.  After the physical London market is closed they always do it then, if not at 1:30 in the morning, and they just flood the market and crush the bid stack, driving the price down.  They they simply buy back and cover their shorts and skim the profits while leaving everyone holding the stock, or a futures contract, as the loser.

Stock markets now overvalued to levels greater than the 2008 financial crisis and the 1929 crash

Over the past 20 years, and especially since 2009, the Federal Reserve has been using the stock markets as a way to mask the underlying insolvency of the general economy.  It is why every business media outlet and segment pushes what the Dow, S&P, and Nasdaq did on a given day, while minimizing the fact that corporate earnings have declined en masse over the past decade.

Since the election of Donald Trump last November, the Dow has not only crossed the unprecedented level of 20,000, but in a very short time it also soared to over 21,000 in little more than a month.  But what has really happened is that the P/E ratios (Price to Earnings) for companies on these respective exchanges have nearly doubled their historic averages, and are now above the bubble levels seen just prior to the Dot Com crash, the 2008 financial crisis, and even the greatest market event in the nation's history, that of October 1929.

Image result for stock market bubble 2017
So, in the name of history, let us briefly examine some of its most important economic factors and how they apply to current market conditions. The present S&P 500 price to earnings (P/E) ratio is 26.52, as opposed to the historical median average which is 14.65. Perhaps more importantly the Schiller P/E is presently 29.27, when the median average is only 16.09. Ironically, 29 is the level the market hit on black Tuesday 1929, right before the great depression of the 1930s. Furthermore, the Schiller benchmark is now well above the 25 level the Shiller PE hit before the great recession in 2007. 
Possibly, most troubling is the S&P's price to sales ratio which is 2.08 a level not seen since the dotcom boom and subsequent bust of course. On average companies that make up the S&P 500 are being valued at more than 2 times sales. This is extremely ambitious and clearly indicates that share prices are appreciating much faster than companies are growing their revenues. The phenomenon we are observing now is somewhat reminiscent of the late 1990s. However, unlike in the late 90s when the U.S.'s GDP was growing at approximately 4.5% now the U.S. economy is barely averaging 2%, huge difference indeed. So, a logical question would be why are we seeing such a drastic appreciation in risk asset prices if the growth is simply not there to support it. - FX Street

Breaking! Just months after banks admit rigging silver price, LBMA administrators suddenly resign from the London price fix

On March 3 the CME Group, along with Thomson Reuters, without warning announced their resignation from running the auctions which set the daily silver price for the LBMA.

Long known as the London Price Fix, this sudden resignation by the two U.S. corporations which play an intrinsic role in controlling the price of silver comes just months after Deutsche and other banks admitted in court that they have been rigging prices in the silver markets for more than a decade.

CME Group and Thomson Reuters are to step down from providing the LBMA silver price benchmark auction, the London Bullion Market Association said on Friday, less than three years after they successfully bid to provide the process. 
"In consultation with the LBMA, CME Group and Thomson Reuters have decided to step down from their respective roles in relation to the LBMA Silver Price auction," the LBMA said in a members update seen by Reuters. 
The two will continue to operate and administer the silver auction until a new provider is appointed, the LBMA said. It will launch a new tender to appoint an alternative provider to operate the process "shortly", it said. - Reuters
The Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME Group) is the world's largest commodity derivative exchange, and plays an essential role in allowing the Federal Reserve and its primary dealers (bullion banks) to manipulate gold and silver prices through the use of naked shorts and other derivatives.

After yesterday's manipulated takedown of gold price, divergence between London and Shanghai back to $28

As soon as London markets closed on March 2, bullion banks instantly dumped 1.15 million ounces (23,000 contracts) to smash down the price of gold using naked paper shorts.

The move appears to be in preparation for Friday's announcement by the Federal Reserve, but also because gold recently achieved a Golden Cross formation, signalling to technical traders a strong buy signal.

Silver Has Just Been Smashed 85 Cents to $17.70, and Gold Prices Have Just Been Sent Plunging to a Last of $1232. 
What Just Triggered the Massive Free-Fall Plunge? 
FED GOONS…giving cover for bullion banks to drop $2 BILLION in paper silver (thats over 23,000 contracts, or 1.15 MILLION OZ) as soon as London closed. - Silver Doctors
In the meantime this artificially manipulated takedown of the gold price was not recognized over in China, where the difference between the PM Gold Fix and Shanghai and the AM Gold Fix in London for March 3 is now back up to $28.

As global currencies roil in turmoil, Bitcoin has now officially reached parity with the price of gold

After shifting Westward since the beginning of the year, when Bitcoin's price movements were primarily tied to Chinese influence, the crypto-currency has not only reached a new all-time high on March 2, but it has also achieved parity with the current price of gold.

Diverging together at $1236 apiece just minutes ago, the alternative choices to holding fiat currencies are now justifiably vying for the market share of individuals around the world who experiencing severe crises in their own economies and local currencies.

Bitcoin Chart:

Live New York Gold Chart [Kitco Inc.]

Global currency troubles:

Venezuela: The Central Bank of Venezuela says the country is down to just $10.5 billion in foreign reserves. At the same time, Caracas has to meet debt obligations of $7.2 billion this year.

Greece: Now, fresh tensions over the country’s bailout are putting that progress at risk. About 1.3 percent of deposits were pulled from the banks in January, while bad loans crept higher, an increase Bank of Greece Governor Yannis Stournaras blamed on borrowers using the deadlock with creditors as an excuse to avoid making their payments.

Greek officials are meeting in Athens this week with representatives of the euro area and International Monetary Fund to set out the policies Greece must undertake to unlock more loans. The government foresees an accord in March or early April, but the scale of pending issues raises concerns they may be politically hard to sell at home.

U.S.: On March 15, the latest suspension expires and the debt limit will likely reset a little north of $20 trillion.

If Congress has not voted by mid-March to either extend the suspension or raise the ceiling, Mnuchin will have to start using special accounting measures just to keep paying the country's bills without violating the borrowing limit.

With the gold price currently being held down through the Comex and London derivatives markets, the likelihood of Bitcoin's price soaring well past that of the yellow metal is very real, especially as the Federal Reserve has come out in recent days almost assuring the markets of another rate hike.  And this will only add more fuel to the crypto-currency's legacy as it officially becomes one of the world's most popular alternatives to holding one's wealth in any sovereign currency.

World's largest retailer Walmart pushing customers towards eliminating use of cash in their stores

As governments around the world mull over, or actually start to implement the elimination of physical cash, the world's largest retailer Walmart is now jumping onto this bandwagon.

In a new initiative announced on Feb. 28, the retail giant updated their mobile app with a new feature meant to entice customers to perform their pharmaceutical and money changing activities online, with the carrot incentive of no longer having to wait in line to fill out their documentation or to pay for these services.

Image result for walmart cashless
Walmart yesterday launched a new initiative in its drive towards zero-cash at its stores. 
The world's largest retailer has added a new feature to its mobile app, which would allow its pharmacy and money services customers to beat long queues, The Street reported.
Whether it was about refilling a prescription or wiring money, all tasks could be done without paperwork and checking prescriptions before stepping into the store, the report said. 
Walmart said while customers would still need to visit the store to pick up prescriptions and verify payments made through money services, express lanes would be set up to cut waiting times to as little as 40 seconds as against six to 11 minutes at present.
The app and express lanes would be introduced at 1,200 locations in March,  and extended to 4,700 US stores by the fall. - Domain B
In 2016 Walmart introduced an app called Walmart Pay in which customers would no longer need to use physical cash, or even receive a physical receipt when checking out as they would pay and document their purchases completely on their smartphones.

While cashless retail shopping is not widespread in the U.S. at this time, a growing number of countries in Europe are nearly 100% cashless, with many of their own retailers no longer even accepting physical cash as payment for items or services.
