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?

Following Brexit, expectations for new rounds of QE could see gold have more $100 per day moves

The overall effects of the UK voting to leave the European Union have yet to be fully determined, but so far they have actually been little more than a barometer to the global changes taking place in which people are rejecting globalism and desiring to take back local sovereignty within their countries.

However, central banks are probably ecstatic for the Brexit event since it will soon be used as the excuse they needed to begin new rounds of quantitative easing (QE) after refusing to acknowledge just how bad economic conditions truly are.

“The U.S. Federal Reserve may even embark on a fourth round of quantitative easing, or QE4, Faber said in an interview on Bloomberg Television on Wednesday, adding that he typically buys bullion every month. While he also likes gold shares, they need to correct first after recent gains, he said. 
“If Brexit is used as an excuse, the central banks will print more money, QE4 in the U.S. is on the way and the depreciation in the purchasing power of currencies will continue,” Faber said in the interview from Hong Kong. “In that situation, you want to own some gold.” - Marc Faber, Bloomberg News
When the news of the Brexit vote hit the airwaves on late Thursday/early Friday, gold instantly shot up $100 per ounce to its highest gain in a single day in history, and back to its highest levels in three years.  And when you couple in the fact that many of the big name investors and hedge funds were buying gold in exorbitant amounts prior to the vote in the UK, the indicators backing a resurgence of gold go far beyond Brexit, and signal deteriorating conditions in the monetary and economic arenas.
“This is going to be a huge crisis. Alan Greenspan was on CNBC saying this is the worst thing he has seen in his career. He’s not talking about what has already happened. He’s talking about what is ABOUT to happen. He understands how screwed up the economy is because he helped screw it up. . . . One of these days, you are going to see gold moving up at $100 clips routinely when people really perceive the dangers in the fiat world and come to grips with how much money these central banks are going to PRINT…” - Silver Doctors

U.S. economy growing itself right back into the Great Depression

When you watch the mainstream media, business news, or any national politicians, they inevitably use certain keywords over and over in an attempt to try to ‘frame’ the economy to their desired outcome.  For years we heard the word ‘recovery’ used by the Fed, President Obama, and CNBC to justify the central bank’s instituting of zero interest rates and quantitative easing, while at the same time Washington used this narrative to continue massive deficits to feed their insatiable spending.
But along with the term recovery, another over-used financial term is that of growth.  And since our entire economy is now based on debt and the interventions of central bank money infusions, an interesting dichotomy is occurring that finally shows exactly where this growth is taking us.
Right back to the Great Depression.

The big gold short: More paper gold is traded in London everyday than all available physical gold in the world

In the movie The Big Short, banks were buying and selling derivatives on mortgage bonds at rates of hundreds if not thousands of times the actual number of houses tied to those bonds.  In fact, it was the advent of the Synthetic CDO (collateralized debt obligation) that turned a housing crisis into a global financial collapse.

Yet because global governments didn't unwind these trades when the need for a bailout came, and jail the bankers who created the environment for global collapse, they simply gave the criminals on Wall Street and London the motivation to keep committing fraud and manipulation in not only the housing market, but in every market.

Following the decision to keep interest rates down to near zero, and initiating a program of money printing that was labeled as 'Quantitative Easing', central banks desperately needed to keep the price of gold down so that the true value of the dollar, euro, and yen would not be realized by the public or general economy.  And they did this by removing all protections to the gold market and allowing paper derivative contracts to dictate the physical markets.  And now five years later, that manipulation has reached levels where more paper gold contracts are traded everyday in London than the total amount of physical gold that is available in the entire world.


Currently, the number of contracts on the COMEX represents 300 times as much paper gold as there is physical metal in the COMEX vaults. Moreover, this number has ballooned at a faster pace over the past two years or so. The 300:1 ratio of contracts to physical ounces is propped by powerful restrictions. The COMEX forbids delivery of gold on the ramps to satisfy a gold contract, under threat of banning the party from participation and entry in the door. Almost nobody takes actual delivery of their metal, except for the big Wall Street banks which steal gold from other depositors. These banks also routinely rig the windows to enable removal of investor gold in the GLD Exchange Traded Fund, and silver from the similar SLV fund. Imagine a gold futures contract with no delivery possible. How absurd! But it has been the reality since June 2012. 
The situation is perhaps even more frightening in the London Bullion Market Assn (LBMA). This market sees $trillions worth of gold trades every day. The activity is truly baffling. On individual trading days, more gold changes hands within contract trading (paper shuffling) across the London market than all the available gold in the world. Yet no metal moves anywhere, in a grand charade. These are merely paper transactions, with almost no actual metal ever in movement. The staggering leverage and dilution should not make any sense to the rational observer. However, in sharp contrast, the Eastern nations are accumulating gold in large volume. - Dr. Jim Willie, Silver Doctors
And now you see why the new gold price mechanism initiated at the Shanghai Gold Exchange will soon be the most powerful change agent the world has seen in perhaps 100 years.  Because not only will it allow gold prices to finally break away from their paper restricted manipulations, but it will eventually force all assets to be laid bare when gold is once again the underlying foundation of all money.

Corporations defaulting on debt at levels not seen since the Great Recession

By now every real investor knows that stock markets are rigged not on fundamentals and technicals, but on Federal Reserve and ESF interventions.  And no greater example of this can be evidenced when Goldman Sachs, who reported a decline of 55% in last quarter earnings, saw their stock go up during today’s trading.
But underlying it all is a growing plague of debt and margin calls, and since the beginning of the year, 46 corporations have defaulted on their debt, which is the highest level seen since 2009, and the beginning of the Great Recession.

Gold versus silver ratio the highest since 2008 at 80 to 1

In a sense you could almost put gold and silver in this respect… buy gold for wealth protection and buy silver for investment speculation.  This is because the gold and silver ratio has hit their near all-time high of 80-1, which was last seen near this level seven years ago at the height of the Credit Crisis.
And in that period of time, the banksters have manipulated silver much more than gold to mask their inflationary schemes of quantitative easing, and protect the dollar when these monetary metals would have revealed the currency for what it now really is… near worthless.

Gold prices rising against every currency from Afghanistan to the United States

As many remember from the movie The Big Short, all hell began to break loose in March of 2007 following a year of declining stock market values and global slowdowns.  And justifiably, it was at this time that gold prices also rose in opposition to other asset class declines.


And after reaching its current trend peak in 2011 when the Fed chose to prop up stocks and housing once again with trillions in Quantitative Easing, gold fell back to a new support level of $1050 by the end of 2015.

But 2015 was 2006 in the parallel timeline, and a pre-cursor to the crash that would take place over the next 18 months.  And just as gold was a barometer for anyone watching as to the stability of currencies, economies, and assets eight years ago, it is once acting as that same barometer once again for nations A to Z, and from Afghanistan to the United States.

The ghost of helicopter Ben goes to Finland

As is inevitable, when negative interest rates aren’t enough, the next phase of Keynesian madness is to simply give people money in the hopes they will spend it to boost an economy.  And while former Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke intimated this program in a speech many years back, it is Finland, not the United States, that is first to bring about this hyper-monetary scheme.
On Dec. 6, Finnish financial authorities announced they are getting ready with a plan to transfer nearly $1000 per month to all citizens, while at the same time cutting off older welfare benefit models.  This equitous plan of providing an equal amount to everyone in the country, no matter how rich or poor they are, is a final stage of desperation that will likely create the inflation Finnish administrators want, but at the cost of higher prices in the general economy, thus negating the effects of the free monthly subsidy.

Since 2010 the U.S. has been in hyperinflation

In layman’s terms, the definition of hyper-inflation occurs when you expand a monetary supply to the point where it crosses over from an arithmetic rate of growth to an exponential one in relation to a nation’s GDP.  This eventually is followed by price hyper-inflation, which eventually leads to destruction in confidence and a death event for a particular currency.
Over the past five years the U.S. central bank has attempted to do its best to survive a hyper-inflation of the dollar by keeping it contained outside the general economy, and at the level of banks and Wall Street.  However, for anyone who has had to pay rent, buy food, or suffer through budget expenses such as those of education or medical, then they know that price inflation has indeed trickled down in a meaningful manner to the public contrary to the constant lies from the Federal Reserve of less than 2% inflation.

Wonder why stock markets soared after Mario Draghi’s speech on Thursday?

It is a given that the computer driven algo’s always run wild on days in which central bank leaders speak, but what was most important about ECB head Mario Daghi’s speech on Oct. 22 was not necessarily what he actually said, but what he implied for new policies going forward.
During his press conference, Draghi announced that interest rates within the Eurozonewould remain at zero, with the potential for more quantitative easing coming on the horizon should deflation and economic conditions merit it.  However, since the European Central Bank could not even spend all of its proposed one trillion euros through the buying of toxic bond debt from the banks, the question arises on what exactly will the ECB use its money printing mechanisms to prop up.
The answer may lie in following the same course that the Federal Reserve and Bank of Japan did… buying stocks and propping up the equity markets.

It appears that the Fed is now done propping up markets as S&P; 500 hits its Death Cross

It has been 10 days since the now famous Federal Reserve interest rate announcement, with the markets having reacted as if Janet Yellen had not said a word.  For in the past when the Fed spoke of raising interest rates, a decision to keep them near zero had always resulted in a new sweep of buying that brought the markets to new all-time highs.  But after equities reached their apex in back mid-May, more than 2000 points have dropped from the Dow index alone, and the S&P 500 on Sept. 28 crossed down below the dreaded Death Cross which may have signaled that the central bank ‘Yellen Put’ may have finally ended in the bank’s policy of propping up stocks.

Chinese bank official acknowledges bubble has burst while IMF admits QE has failed

This week has now seen two global banking entities admit that the monetary policies created by most central banks have not only failed, but are the root causes for what will become the next great financial crisis.  On Friday, the IMF came out with a paper ceding that the Japanese central bank will very quickly run out of assets to purchase, meaning that their massive Quantitative Easing program will grind to a halt, and leaving Japan with no more arrows in their quiver to keep their asset bubbles afloat.

The Bank of Japan may need to reduce the pace of its bond purchases in a few years due to a shortage of sellers, said economists at the International Monetary Fund. 
There is likely to be a “minimum” level of demand for Japanese government bonds from banks, pension funds, and insurance companies due to collateral needs, asset allocation targets, and asset-liability management requirements, said IMF economists Serkan Arslanalp and Dennis Botman.

Bankster economist who called for an end to cash now calls for global QE4

It is incredibly funny when you realize that most market projections are determined by banks and economists who have a monetary interest in the outcome of their own analysis.  From the forecasting of quarterly earnings for individual stocks, to telling the Federal Reserve how they should perform monetary policy, the casino known as Wall Street is simply a segregated environment where 1%ers vie with other 1%ers to manipulate outcomes based on their own for or against betting patterns.
Thus it should come as no surprise that the once again fail Chief Economist from Citigroup is ratcheting up his rhetoric, and where at a meeting for the Council on Foreign Relations he suggested it is time for central banks around the world to rev up the helicopter and start a new round of Quantitative Easing to stave off the coming economic crash.

Unemplyment rate falls to 5.4% as economy creates 437,000 part time jobs, and ignores 93 million uncounted unemployed

The government propaganda machine was in full swing on May 8 as the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) announced their newest job numbers report that showed a decline in the unemployment rate down to 5.4%.  In fact, the job numbers report missed analyst expectations by 5,000 with a print of 223,000 new jobs compared to a forecast of 228,000, with the most important indicator showing that of these new jobs created, 447,000 were part time positions while 252,000 full time jobs were removed from the economy.
And as has become the norm, the number of Americans not counted by the BLS rose to an all-time high of 93,194,000, which if included would show the unemployment rate over 24%.

Is the U.S. ordering Japan’s currency to collapse to protect the dollar?

It is very interesting to note that as the Federal Reserve began tapering down its latest program of Quantitative Easing (QE), the dollar strengthened to levels not seen in a few years with both Europe and Japan collapsing into a deflationary spiral.  But in the absolute need by the Fed to keep the dollar and stock markets propped up, is the U.S. using their vassal state of Japan as the sacrifice to fill the gap that formalized QE was performing?

In an essay written on Nov. 14 by former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, the esteemed economist makes the case that Japan has and remains the proxy for U.S. financial dominance, and that the recent moves by Prime Minister Abe to fully monetize the Japanese budget could be part of an ordered plan to devalue the Yen to ensure that the dollar remains dominant in a world of increasing deflation and oncoming recession.

Dollar’s sudden strength occurring as a sign the world is rejecting reserve currency

Approximately three months ago, the dollar began a massive rise in relation to other global currencies, with its value gaining more than 675 bps on the charts.  Closing out on Friday, Oct. 3 around 86.64, this is the highest the dollar has been since the middle of 2010 when the Federal Reserve began its first round of Quantitative Easing, and Europe was enmeshed in a liquidity crisis.
But while economists and government officials can go on the talking head programs and tout the recovery of the economy as the primary reason for the dollar’s meteoric rise, the real truth that is being hidden is that the dollar’s strength is tied primarily to the world rejecting the reserve currency, and shipping back dollars to the U.S. at an ever increasing rate.

It’s official: Quantitative Easing is a failure

In late 2008, and a little ways past the start of the Great Recession, the Federal Reserve decided to introduce a new form of money printing known as Quantitative Easing.  In this new scheme to increase liquidity and attempt to stimulate the economy, the Fed began buying toxic assets from banks , while at the same time, allowing financial institutions to borrow money at near zero interest.  This combination was expected to ease the consequences of the 2007-2008 credit crisis, and to allow for banks to begin capital investments to both corporations and small businesses.

However, in the four years that this program has been operational, and with the central bank trying four different QE models, the results of their efforts are in, and their effects on the economy have proven to be an utter failure.

Leading CEO of a home builder says rising rates are causing home buying decline

On July 25, the CEO of D.R. Horton addressed shareholders in an earnings conference call, and said explicitly that rising interest rates are draining the market of home buyers, and that the rapid rate rise is an unexpected shock to the industry.



  • *HOMEBUYERS 'SHOCKED AND DISTURBED' BY RATE JUMP, TOMNITZ SAYS
  • *D.R. HORTON CEO SAYS 'DISAPPOINTED' RATES ROSE SO 'VIOLENTLY'
  • *D.R. HORTON CEO SAYS TRAFFIC COUNT HAS SLOWED SINCE RATE RISE - Zerohedge

  • Rising interest rates is the biggest fear the Federal Reserve has had since their implementation of quantitative easing, and six years after bringing Fed rates down to almost 0, the market is now breaking upwards on its own. This uncontrolled rise in rates means that central bank polices have crossed over the technical line, where priming the monetary pump no longer provides the shelter against inflation and currency devaluation.

    Since the Housing Bubble and credit crisis of 2007/2008, the Fed has been primarily seeking to rebuild the housing and stock markets, under the illusion that wealth gained there would trickle down into all parts of the economy.  Unfortunately, when you use old tools and programs for new crises, the end result is what we have seen over the past six years... a temporary Band-Aid to stem a flood that is not only virulent, but has grown much worse because of the Doctors proscribed medicine.
