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?

Bail-ins are back in vogue as one insolvent Spanish bank takes over another while CoCo bond holders lose 97% of value

It has been four years since the concept of a bail-in, or the using of customer deposits and assets to recapitalize a bankrupt financial institution was first used in Cyprus, but on June 7 the second one in the Eurozone has now taken place as CoCo (Contingent Convertible) bondholders of the Spanish bank Banco Popular just received their own haircut of more than 97% as the bank was taken over by another well known insolvent institution.

Last night the European Central Bank's 'Single Resolution Mechanism' agreed to allow Santander to purchase Banco Popular for just one Euro, and will be allowed to draw funds from the ECB to help recapitalize its new asset.  And ironically this move will allow Senior debt holders to be protected on the positive side of the bailout, but leave CoCo bond holders with nearly nothing as their bonds are more than likely to be converted into bank shares at extremely discounted prices.


There is a rule in Financial Institutions that any bank that calls itself “popular” generally isn’t. This was proved last night. But, congratulations if you were a holder of Spain’s Banco Popular’s Senior Debt - they did a Zebedee “boing!” on the basis last night’s last minute Santander rescue makes the bonds money good. 
Bad news for the Equity and COCO AT1 holders - who have the distinction of holding the first major bank capital bonds to be bailed-in/wiped out under EU regulations. Banco Popular senior debt is 12 points higher this morning. 
The AT1 perps are trading at 2.6%, down 50 points!!,and even that price looks optimistic. Ahah. We’ve not seen crashes like that since 2008. 
The Single Resolution Board agreed the sale of Popular for One Euro to Santander. Santander will launch a Euro 7 bln rights issue to recapitalise the bank, but that’s not a massive ask for Popular’s business. At one time Pop was the top Spanish bank - a great SME platform, strong retail business and solid management. Now it’s just another name to be restructured and synergised (is that a word?) into the maw of Santander. - Zerohedge
Oh, and who was protected during this bail-in, and subsequent takeover of Banco Popular?  Germany of course, who holds the majority of senior debt positions on the Spanish banks, and who the ECB is really there to protect over all others in the biggest dirty little secret of the Eurozone project.

Is Germany's gold repatriation in preparation for end of Euro as Chancellor Merkel questions solvency of the currency

Sometimes events that coincide with certain actions taken are little more than coincidental, or at most unforeseen consequences of those changes to the norm.  But for the most part in the political sphere, when actions are taken they are done with a purposeful agenda in mind, as validated by a quote made 80 years ago by then President Franklin Roosevelt.
“In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”
Now with this in mind there were two key activities and comments that took place in Germany over the last seven days which can easily lead to a conclusion that the largest economy in the Eurozone is expecting a mighty sea change to Europe's current monetary system.

Germany has finally received half of the gold they initiated repatriation of

Over the past 10 days Germany finally received a large portion of the gold they demanded be returned from both the New York Fed, and from banks throughout Europe that have held their gold since the end of World War II.  And in an op-ed from CNBC a few days ago, the question as to why they wanted or needed this gold was asked.

An official announcement last week that the Bundesbank had pretty much repatriated half its gold reserves ahead of schedule has once again sent the rumor mill into overdrive. 
And the talk has now stepped up a notch with the Bundesbank confirming Thursday that it has already moved 583 tons of gold out of New York and Paris. Its plan to hold half its gold in Frankfurt is now three years ahead of schedule. 
Reporting the news, Reuters said that some argue the world's second-biggest bullion reserve "may be needed to back a new deutsche mark, should the euro zone break up." This seems pretty far-fetched, especially given that the Bretton Woods system of fixed exchange rates ended back in the 1970s. Could Berlin really be prepping for the fall of the euro? - CNBC
Yet speculation in the business media is not enough to validate why Germany is choosing to focus on their gold repatriation now after saying three years ago that it was no longer a concern.  That is until we look at comments made by Chancellor Angela Merkel on Feb. 18 where she finally admitted that there are serious problems with the Euro, and even went as far to blame Mario Draghi and his monetary policies done through the European Central Bank.
Two weeks ago, German finance minister Wolfgang Schauble confirmed Donald Trump's charge that the Euro is far "too low" for Germany, but said he is unable to do anything about it and instead blamed Mario Draghi. “The euro exchange rate is, strictly speaking, too low for the German economy’s competitive position,” he told Tagesspiegel on February 5. “When ECB chief Mario Draghi embarked on the expansive monetary policy, I told him he would drive up Germany’s export surplus . . . I promised then not to publicly criticise this [policy] course. But then I don’t want to be criticized for the consequences of this policy.” 
Then, on Saturday, his boss German Chancellor Angela Merkel echoed her finance minister, and also admitted that the euro is indeed "too low" for Germany, but once again made clear that Berlin had no power to address this "problem" because monetary policy was set by the independent European Central Bank. 
"We have at the moment in the euro zone of course a problem with the value of the euro," Merkel said in an unusual foray into foreign exchange rate policy. - Zerohedge
But the problems with the Euro currency go far beyond the ineptitude of the former Goldman Sachs banker who plays the role as Master of the Universe over Europe's monetary system.  This is because the rising tide of populism has become a real threat to the end of the Euro and even the European Union, with Italy, France, the Netherlands, and possibly even Greece all threatening to leave the currency and Union should elections pan out as currently predicted for these nation states.

Germany's biggest financial fear is inflation, and over the past several months their economy has been experiencing sharp rises in prices as debt, liquidity, and even banking problems hover like Black Swans over their, and the entire EU financial system.  And it is becoming apparent that the Germany government is taking no chances by accelerating their repatriation of their gold, because the writing appears more and more on the wall that gold will be the money of choice after the next crisis hits.

Europe now joins the war on gold as they propose confiscation from anyone entering the EU who 'might' be a terrorist

First it was India, who began the war on cash and gold by using the spurious reasons of trying to halt black market transactions.  Then they were followed next by China, who has put in place laws to limit the taking out of gold from the mainland to protect against capital flight.

Now the European Union is getting into the mix as they are proposing new laws which would allow for the confiscation of both cash and gold from anyone entering into the EU whom they deem to be a 'terrorist'.

Image result for gold confiscation
The European Commission is proposing a tightening of controls over cash and precious metals transfers from outside the EU under the guise of shutting down one route for funding of militant attacks on the continent, following the Berlin Christmas attack. 
China has already begun de facto gold import restrictions, and as Jayant Bhandari detailed previously, India is experiencing a continuation of new social engineering notifications, each sabotaging wealth-creation, confiscating people’s wealth, and tyrannizing those who refuse to be a part of the herd, in the process destroying the very backbone of the economy and civilization. There are clear signs that in a very convoluted way, possession of gold for investment purposes will be made illegal. Expect capital controls to follow. 
These new proposals are part of an EU "action plan against terrorist financing" unveiled after the bombings and shootings in Paris in November 2015.
Under the new proposals, customs officials in European Union states can step up checks on cash and prepaid payment cards sent by post or in freight shipments. 
Authorities will also be able to seize cash or precious metals carried by suspect individuals entering the EU. 
People carrying more than 10,000 euros (8,413.56 pounds) in cash already have to declare this at customs when entering the EU. The new rules would allow authorities to seize money below that threshold "where there are suspicions of criminal activity," the EU executive commission said in a note. 
The plan complements Commission proposals after the Paris attacks to tighten controls on virtual currencies such as bitcoin, and prepaid cards, which French authorities said were used to fund the bombings. 
EU states backed these proposals on Tuesday. Under the deal, which still needs European Parliament approval, holders of prepaid cards would have to show some form of identity when they make payments of 150 euros or more. 
But it gets better... 
The Commission is also proposing common rules for the 28 EU countries on freezing "terrorists' financial resources" and on confiscating assets even from those thought to be connected to criminals. - Zerohedge
The real reasons behind the sudden shift from the EU to restrict money coming into the Eurozone with either cash or gold is because they want to ween people off of using physical money, and/or protecting themselves by keeping their wealth outside the banking system.  Because all one has to do is look at recent history where European banks are not only taking part in helping to launder money for the drug cartels and terrorists, but the government's themselves know about these activities and do nothing to stop it.

Got gold? Bank bail-ins have returned, and are beginning in Austria

Last year saw a mad rush by Western governments, especially in the Eurozone, to pass bail-in legislation before the end of 2015.  And while the European Central Bank has done its part in attempting to buy every single toxic debt that was on the books of European banks, it hasn't been enough to satisfy the trillions in loans made to subsidize the oil industry, emerging markets, or artificial bubbles in sectors like housing.

And it appears that these new laws came none too soon as on April 10, Austria invoked their bail-in procedure and will initiate a debt haircut on senior creditors for a failed bank that was nationalized six years ago.

Today, the Austrian Financial Market Authority (FMA) in its function as the resolution authority pursuant to the Bank Recovery and Resolution Act (BaSAG - Bundesgesetz über die Sanierung und Abwicklung von Banken) has issued the key features for the further steps for the resolution of HETA ASSET RESOLUTION AG. The most significant measures are: 
•a 53.98% bail-in, resulting in a 46.02% quota, for all eligible preferential liabilities, 
•the cancellation of all interest payments from 01.03.2015, when HETA was placed into resolution pursuant to BaSAG, 
•as well as a harmonisation of the maturities of all eligible liabilities to 31.12.2023. - Examiner
Are you prepared for a bail-in at your financial institution?  Or are you set in having your wealth transferred to the only asset that cannot be confiscated in a bail-in, or devalued by central banks?

Finland to discuss whether to leave the Euro currency

First there was Greece (Grexit), who looked long and hard at leaving the Eurozone during last year’s financial crisis.  And that discontent is being followed up now in Britain (Brexit), who is expected to propose a referendum to have a vote on whether to stay or leave the union sometime in 2017.
And with Mario Draghi and the European Central Bank (ECB) taking interest rates down to zero on Thursday, and in some parts of the lending facility below that into negative territory, one Northern European member is taking a long look at whether to leave the Euro currency following a public petition that has now moved the idea into their legislature to debate on the issue.

ECB head Mario Draghi validates that markets are tied to interventions, not fundamentals

On March 10 the European Central Bank (ECB) issued its highly anticipated policy announcement, and the shift from simply watching market action from the shadows is now over.  This is because ECB head Mario Draghi rocked the financial world with a Euro denominated bazooka, and proved once again that markets no longer function on fundamentals, but instead on credit based interventions.
Although not quite going full tilt into negative interest rates, the ECB did lower rates at its primary lending facility to zero from 0.05%, and dropped its deposit rate 10 bps to -0.40 which is an indication the central bank wants Europe’s financial institutions to borrow and spend rather than borrow and save.

Got Karatbars? China sees 25 percent decline in exports and ECB goes to zero as Draghi fires new bazooka shot at economy

Five years after beginning the global push for low interest rates and massive stimulus, central banks continue to have to do even more just to sustain economies from falling back into the Great Recession.  And despite the fact that they also continue to jawbone the mantra that the economy is doing well, and in recovery, it is quite confusing that they seem to ignore the actual data, yet feel a requirement to intervene in greater and greater ways as if the global economy was on the precipice of collapse.

This is why two major data points this week should be warning signs as to the real state of the global economy, and why central banks have been casting their 'bread upon the waters' for potential policies like negative interest rates (NIRP) and the banning cash.  And while ECB head Mario Draghi today didn't quite enter full tilt into NIRP on their lending rate, they did remove the last remaining basis points (bps) and took it full down to zero.


(1) The interest rate on the main refinancing operations of the Eurosystem will be decreased by 5 basis points to 0.00%, starting from the operation to be settled on 16 March 2016.  
(2) The interest rate on the marginal lending facility will be decreased by 5 basis points to 0.25%, with effect from 16 March 2016.  
(3) The interest rate on the deposit facility will be decreased by 10 basis points to -0.40%, with effect from 16 March 2016.  
(4) The monthly purchases under the asset purchase programme will be expanded to €80 billion starting in April. - To the Death Media
Yet Europe's continued economic woes are not the only signals marking a return towards recession and a coming collapse event.  In China, where GDP growth declined to under 7% for the first time in several years, exports fell over 25% for the 4th quarter, showing that nations are finding it difficult to purchase goods for domestic retail, and validating the immense and historic drop in shipping via the Baltic Dry Index.



So with the global economy showing signs of a new recession, and central banks like the Fed, ECB, and Bank of Japan still implementing monetary policies that belie the propaganda of economic 'recovery', where does that leave you as an individual to protect yourself from markets that are sustained only with intervention, and currencies that are fighting one another to see who can devalue the most the fastest?

You can do so with the best performing asset of 2016... gold, and you can do this with the best company in the world that is built on helping you buy affordable gold no matter the swings in price.

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?

French President Hollande advocates for the technocratic power of the unelected EU financial system

As the United Kingdom debates on whether to exit the European Union and keep their dual currency mandate within the coalition, French President Francois Hollande on Feb. 19 spoke in opposition to this and instead advocated his support for the unelected technocrats that run the EU’s financial system.  And in comments made during the ongoing EU Summit, Hollande stated that no sovereign nation should have the power to veto decisions made regarding financial regulations within the European Union.
President Hollande’s words support recent comments made by both the French and German central bank heads who called for a centralized finance ministry at the EU level that would supersede all member states within the Union.

Heads of European central banks call for a singular Eurozone finance ministry

It is a given that once power is achieved in a particular sphere, those in authority are never content to remain satisfied with what they rule over.  In fact, conquest has always been the underlying motivation for leaders since the beginning of time.
And while having a joint coalition of nations within the European continent is a marvel unto itself, this grand scheme is evolving into a technocratic takeover, where removal of national sovereignty is the ultimate goal, and can be seen in examples like on Feb. 8 where two of the continents leading central bankers are now calling for a singular Eurozone finance ministry to oversee and control the economies and financial systems of all member nations.

Double whammy: Influx of immigrants into Europe are job seekers moving into recessionary markets

By now most intelligent people have realized that the influx of millions of ‘refugees’ into the Eurozone are not casualties of the Syrian conflict, but opportunists seeking better economic conditions than what they had in their Middle Eastern or East European country’s.  And what makes this disaster even greater is that these ‘job seekers’ are coming at a time when most of Europe is falling into a economic recession and rising unemployment.
Yet despite the obvious, and the overwhelming evidence that many of these refugees care little about the laws of the nations they are flocking into, government leaders appear to be impotent in dealing with the immigrant problem, as well as protecting their own people and economies from this takeover.

EU unofficially becomes a political union after threatening to cut off funds to Portugal

Earlier this year, the European Union’s economic arm fought tooth and nail with Greece over their massive amounts of sovereign debt that hung in the balance between default, and restructure.  In the end, the Troika won out over the Syriza government, and money began to flow back in only after austerity measures were increased against the Greek people.
And a little less than six months later, the EU is once again attempting to use their power on a sovereign country to force not only monetary policies on the people of Portugal, but perhaps now a political one as well as on Nov. 10, the European Central Bank threatened to turn off the Euro spigot to the Southern European country for their temerity in voting out an EU friendly government and replacing it with a Marxist one.

With a Spanish city set to create parallel currency, is the EU on the brink of losing monetary control?

The European Union (EU) was originally setup to be a trade union that expanded decades later into a monetary union.  But with the European Central Bank (ECB) at the heart of financial destruction created in nations in Southern Europe, several peoples within these insolvent countries are now fighting back with the use or establishment of alternate forms of currency.
On Oct. 24, an official in the city of Barcelona announced that the municipality is planning to engineer a parallel currency to the Euro, and forge ahead with a localized form of money that goes far beyond the black market currencies now being seen in places like Greece and Argentina.

German coup over Greece sees new rise of the 4th Reich in Europe

Politicians are not leaders… nor are they statesmen who are willing to make the hard decisions despite the potential loss to one’s career or reputation.  And just days after the only Greek minister with the fortitude to stand up to the Troika resigned from office, it appears that not only is Greece ceding to another generation of austerity, but in doing so is giving up their sovereignty and possessions for a few billion euros from the real masters of the continent.
Germany.
At the beginning of the 20th century, and then again near its midpoint, the German empire rose and fell twice only to hide in wait as the Cold War placed its dream of continental domination on the shelf.  But in the 1990’s when the Soviet Union and Berlin walls fell, Germany began a new empiric rise that would come not from soldiers, artillery, and tanks, but from economic means and power over European banks.
And on July 13, the emergence and rise of the 4th Reich took place as Greece not only capitulated to Germany in an utterly humiliating defeat, but voluntarily gave up their sovereignty, their future, and their legacy simply for new debt that like their current obligations, can never be repaid.

Got Karatbars? One of Europe's largest bond fund managers says its time to get into cash and gold

Analysts within the alternative media have for year's spoken on the attributes and outright necessity of owning gold, especially when central banks have engineered vast money printing programs and regular banks have shown themselves insolvent.  But when a mainstream financier goes public and calls for people to get out of paper assets like bonds and stocks, and get into cash and gold because of a foreseeable financial calamity coming on the near horizon, then it is a signal that that 'stuff' is really about to hit the fan, and protecting yourself from what is to come is imperative.

On June 20, a Bond fund manager for one of the largest bond firms in both Britain and Europe, is urging his investors to get out of the very paper assets his financial institution sells, and get directly into either cash or gold, and as he so eloquently implied, to keep some wealth under the mattress.

The manager of one of Britain’s biggest bond funds has urged investors to keep cash under the mattress.

Ian Spreadbury, who invests more than £4bn of investors’ money across a handful of bond funds for Fidelity, including the flagship Moneybuilder Income fund, is concerned that a “systemic event” could rock markets, possibly similar in magnitude to the financial crisis of 2008, which began in Britain with a run on Northern Rock.

“Systemic risk is in the system and as an investor you have to be aware of that,” he told Telegraph Money.

The best strategy to deal with this, he said, was for investors to spread their money widely into different assets, including gold and silver, as well as cash in savings accounts. But he went further, suggesting it was wise to hold some “physical cash”, an unusual suggestion from a mainstream fund manager. - Telegraph.co.uk

Spreadbury's reference to Northern Rock is in relation to the British bank that helped start Europe's version of the 2007 Credit Crisis, as a run on the bank triggered financial problems all across Britain, and the rest of the Eurozone.  And while the only run on banks that is taking place right now is happening in Greece, a sovereign bank failure in this Southern European country could trigger over $75 trillion worth of derivatives held by other major banks, and lead to a bank holiday or bank bail-in that would wipe out your savings and investments in a single day.

The bond markets for more than a month now have been signaling extreme risk, as seen in the Eurozone's most stable country Germany.  In just the past four weeks, the German Bund (sovereign bond) has bounced back and forth by more than 70 basis points (bps), which is an unprecedented event outside of a systematic breakdown.

To add fuel to the fire on Ian Spreadbury's warning, precious metal analyst Bill Holter went public in an interview on Friday stating that Monday is a black letter day for the global markets, as the Greek situation is reaching a climax, and the results could very easily lead to a systematic global meltdown.



Even if central banks and sovereign governments are able to stave off any potential collapse that may come in the next few days, the writing is clearly on the way that the entire global financial system is headed towards a new crisis, and will not last without a breakdown before the end of October.  So between now and then, if you have money in a bank, or wealth that you need protection for, there are only a few solutions outside of cashing in your investments and trying to find outlets to buy physical gold and silver.

But there is one entity that can provide for everything you need to do this, and protect your wealth in the event of a bank crisis, or systematic financial meltdown.

That entity is 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.

On possibly last days in eurozone, Greece to sign pipeline agreement with Russia

The nation of Greece is in total turmoil, with an IMF payment default already under their belt, and massive riots proliferating the country, the last days for the Southern European country in the Eurozone could be close at hand.  Yet even with chaos reigning throughout the region, members of the Greek government are now in St. Petersburg finalizing an agreement that will bring a pipeline into their country, and provide needed revenues as a gateway to Europe for energy sent through the Turkstream route.
And with this agreement could be the beginning of a new alliance between Russia, Greece, and the BRICS.

U.S. dollar will not survive 2015 according to well known financial analyst

In the most recent publication of Dr. Jim Willie’s Hat Trick Newsletter, the well known and accomplished statistician and financial analyst provided one of his most explosive forecasts yet, and it has to do with the solvency of the dollar and petro-dollar system.
Looking at four key factors that have evolved over the past few years, the potential for Dr. Willie’s prediction is quite high, especially as this year will be the crossroads for Europe and the future direction Eurozone nations will take after more than a year of living under brutal economic sanctions.

Soros lies in press to vilify Russia calling for IMF to fund Europe in economic war

Former Nazi collaborator and billionaire George Soros took the unprecedented move to pen an op-ed charging Russia with economic warfare against the European Union, and calling for the IMF to fund the EU against what Soros implies is ‘a Russian attack on Ukraine that is indirectly an attack on the European Union and its principles of governance.’

ECB creates new banking union to take control over all banks in Eurozone

On March 20, the European Central Bank (ECB) finalized a deal where they would create a new banking union, and have complete control over all banks in the Eurozone.  This new union would allow the central bank to determine the insolvency of any bank facility, and have to the power to bailout, or cease operations of even small or regional banks tied to a sovereign state or country.
European Union negotiators agreed on Thursday to complete Europe’s banking union with a new agency to shut euro zone banks that are too weak to survive and a fund to help cover the costs, according to a draft agreement.
The deal also envisages giving the European Central Bank the primary role in triggering the closure of a bank, making it harder for the new ‘resolution’ agency to do so and limiting the scope for country ministers to challenge such a move. - Economic Times

Eurozone joins President Obama in changing model for GDP reporting

Back in April of this year, the Obama administration instituted a change in how GDP is measured, increasing the number reported by more than 3%.  This occurred after the economy had retracted for the prior 2 quarters, and at a time when the national debt was climbing to over 105% of annual GDP.
So as not to be outdone, it appears that the Eurozone has caught on to this idea of manipulating their own GDP numbers in an attempt to make state economies look much better than the vast recession most of the Eurozone is experiencing.
