Post Impending Financial Collapse
Here is a theory I subscribe to! This is the best strategy analysis I have seen as our immediate future ...

The Grand Finale: Here Is What Is About To Happen To You…
An Economic Love Story, or Fifty Shades of Green?


NOW, On To Your Regularly Scheduled Programming!

Here Is What Is About To Happen To You…

Okay, I’m going to save time for those of you who piss and moan about “Wall of Text” OP’s. I’m going to give a synopsis right up front for all of you Fluoridated, ADHD medicated, passer-by trolls that just come to financial posts on GLP to say, “You Can’t Eat Silver!”

The Synopsis of this thread is: You’re f…..!

There, now you can go on and go view the latest post on Jay-Z, or Dennis Rodman, or the Nobody, or what-the-f…-ever…Goodbye and God-Speed.

For the rest of you that want to know what’s about to happen to your finances, hell to life as you know it, follow me down the rabbit hole for a moment. I will assure you that the time you take reading this post will be time well spent.

First, let me remind you, I don’t post timing predictions willy-nilly on financial matters. I have a Youtube channel and a Blog that some people actually come to for legitimate advice, so I try to stay away from the “timing game” regarding financial matters as much as I can, because it can always change through unforeseen circumstances and financial moves by the Central Banks. They keep their plans fluid people, and they have all the time in the world. That being said, the reason I feel fairly confident in posting this rough sketch timing of the next big financial event is because it is already in motion…

Second, let’s go over the evidence we have already collected of this well planned financial crisis that is coming at us like a freight train in a tunnel.


The Evidence

I could go all the way back to the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank in 1913 and bring you forward to the point we are at now, but you already know about this stuff, and if you have any questions regarding long past financial events that relate to our current situation, then I will try as best I can to address those questions on this thread. For purposes of brevity, I’m going to stick to recent financial news and how it relates to the coming financial reset, but please understand, all of those past moves that I’m not discussing here from 1913 to present are still part of this equation, a big part. So keep them in mind as you read on.

2010 to the Present, Capital Controls: In 2010 The United States began printing a new series of $100 bills (for information on that series just Google: The New $100 Bill, and you will get all the info you need), but they don’t begin circulating the new $100 bill, they just printed them by the pallet load and put them in storage. Meanwhile, they enact Capital Controls in 2011 through a hefty sur-tax on money leaving the country and going to places like Belize, and other favorite spots for Ex-Patriots, those capital controls went into effect at the beginning of 2012. Also during this time they are pulling worn and torn $100 bills out of the system at record rates, pulling down the amount of actual U.S. currency on the world market, all while flooding that same world market with electronically generated computer dollars. The bottom line to all of these moves is; DURING THE LAST THREE YEARS CAPITAL CONTROLS HAVE BEEN STEALTHFULLY PUT INTO PLACE AND MADE FULLY FUNCTIONAL IN THE USA!

Also, an interesting side note on the Capital Controls issue, they have decided to release into circulation the new $100 bill beginning in October of 2013, keep this date in mind as you read on.

2010 to the Present, Financial Regulations: In 2010 the United States passed the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act, and similar regulations were passed by England, the European Union, and most other developed countries. Despite all of the “Consumer Protection” hoopla surrounding these financial reforms, they were decidedly not consumer friendly. In point of fact, they were quite the opposite. Essentially what these regulations have done is totally changed the nature of the banking relationship. You are no longer a “depositor” at your financial institution; you are now an “unsecured creditor” of your bank. This doesn’t seem like much of a change until you also put together the way they have changed the method by which they reorganize a “systemically important” bank or financial company when it defaults. In the past, with regards to FDIC insured deposits at banks, if you had more money on deposit than was covered by the FDIC insurance, you might not get all of your money over $250,000 back, but you were first in line to get your money back from the liquidation of the other assets of the bank. Now, you are moved to the very back of the line, and any money over $250,000 dollars will most likely be replaced with stock certificates in a worthless shell company organized by the FDIC to hold all of the banks “bad assets” after post default reorganization. We all saw test runs of this with MF Global, and in Cyprus, and the tests went pretty much according to plan except, with regards to Cyprus, that much of the Russian Mafia money was allowed to flee the country through branches in other countries. These problems were promptly fixed by quiet new banking regulations involving out of country branches of a bank organized in another country.

Also, with regards to financial regulation, the Bank of International Settlements, the shadowy Central Bank of Central Banks, in Basel, Switzerland has passed a new set of Basel Banking Regulations that they began working on in 2010, called Basel III. Now you can read up about Basel III if you like, but in a nutshell what it does is put severe leverage restrictions and increased capital requirements on banks within the BIS structure (which is virtually all of the developed world). Now the European Union and the USA have been tinkering with the wording of these regulations since the last half of 2012, basically not changing them in any real fashion, but more looking for the right time to implement them. It now appears that that timing will be at the end of Q2 or the beginning of Q3, 2013. This will mean that during Q3 or Q4 of 2013, expect to see a massive credit freeze happen. Now, do you remember the date of circulation for the new $100 bill?

If you have any questions about the power of these Basel Banking Regulations you can also see the effects that Basel II and 2.5, mark to market accounting, had on the Housing Markets in the United States of America in 2008. There were many causes for that housing bubble, then housing crisis, but Basel II and 2.5 was most assuredly the pin that popped the housing bubble that led to the financial crisis of 2008-09.

2010 to Present, Financial Events: There have been many financial events that have caused economists and traders to false start, then false start again on predictions of doom, but all of these events have seemingly been blown away by the massive Bull Market in the United States and China. Traders and Economists have complained ad-nauseum that these markets simply don’t seem to have any relationship anymore to the actual economic environment, and they are right. These markets are wholly bought out with massive printing of electronic fiat dollars by monolithic financial institutions associated with the Federal Reserve and fully controlled by high frequency computer trading algorithms. The equity markets, and other fractional reserve markets such as precious metals, bear no relationship to the economy anymore. And despite the Quantitative Easing cheerleaders on the TV and in the financial forums, that is simply a fact.

There are many events in the financial markets that have transpired over the last two years that were signals of impending crisis, in fact so many that I simply don’t have the time, nor do you, to go over all of them. So I will choose three recent events that have been very large signals to me of what is to come for the world economy.

First, Cyprus: As I stated before, Cyprus was a test run of the new financial regulations of the European Union in much the same way that MF Global was in the United States, but it was also a signal to those in the know, that you had better get your money out of the banks! I won’t go over it again, but rest assuredly; this was a major recent signal.

Second, The Orchestrated Take-Down of Precious Metals: This was a move that may have well backfired on the Financial Cartel, in a sense. In seeking to take down the level of Precious Metal to allow for more inflation of these same metals later on (when it is needed to expand a currency that they decide to back with PM’s), they sought to also transfer the remaining private ownership of these metals from what we in the financial world call, “Weak Hands to Strong Arms”. It started with financial talking heads on TV trashing Gold and Silver as an investment for almost two months, and it then culminated with Black Friday in the commodity pits. What they never expected was that stackers would actually try to take that opportunity to load up on metals. They never expected the Physical Market to stabilize, and then push the paper market higher. They never expected the immediate disconnect of spot price in relation to physical price that happened and is still happening almost a month later. However, the move still serves a purpose for the Financial Cartel, it put all of the markets, including the bond markets and derivative markets, on tenuous footing, and it allowed for Banks to load up on physical metals at a cheap price for compliance with Basel III Capital Requirements. Unfortunately for the Cartel boys though, they may well have sacrificed the COMEX, their controlled price discovery system, in this transaction. But I doubt it matters much in the long run to them, as the COMEX was already dead the moment this plan was put into place. This move in PM’s was another huge signal of what’s to come, and if you will bear with me, I will tie it all together as we move through my scenario.

Third, The Ongoing Bond Implosion in Japan: Now this is a financial story that is still developing, but it is progressing at a rapid rate. Japan is the most leveraged country in the world, and their economy has been constantly controlled by the Financial Cartel, and virtually stagnate for almost twenty years now. Japan has been ripe to fall off of the tree for a long time, so it only makes sense that any bond and/or derivative market collapse would begin here. Japan is leading in the race to the bottom of currency degradation in the world currency wars, and they are the trigger that will cause the debt markets in Europe to implode, and then shortly thereafter, the debt markets in the USA. I’ve been saying for a couple of years now, and I still say, if you want to know the timing of all of this, watch Japan.

So, while there were obviously many more financial events that have transpired over the last three years that are slowly leading us to this cliff of financial oblivion that we now stand at the precipice of, these three alone are enough to help us with our conclusion.

Problem, Reaction, Solution; a Hegelian Love Story: So you say, fine, you’ve shown us a bunch of individual and apparently unrelated pieces of evidence of economic disaster, but yet we are still here. We are still standing despite it all.

Here’s where we tie it all together. You see the economic world moves in cycles, just like everything else in the Universe, and when we were using a more modified Austrian model of economics our economies moved in a 20-30 year cycle, but after WWII that all changed, because when the Austrian cycle came rolling around again for the World Reserve Currency in the 1970’s the financial cartel did something that would forever alter the path of human development, they pulled the worlds reserve currency, the U.S. Dollar, off of the gold standard, replaced it with the petro-dollar, and moved all world currencies to a totally fiat Keynesian economic system. This allowed for exponential expansion of currency and capital that was previously only dreamed of in Austrian circles, but it also allowed for the expansion of debt to never before imagined levels. And this is where we are today.

So Here’s The Problem: Debt; more debt has been created under this ever inflating system of Keynesian Economics and it’s fractional reserve banking than can ever be paid off. More debt exists on this planet than money exists to pay it off. So how do we cure something that can no longer be cured through economic expansion? Because you see, economic expansion, inflation, is the only way things are cured in a Keynesian System. So this leaves one to ask, how does the Financial Cartel take down a monolithic skyscraper of debt that they’ve built all they way up to the heavens, but has become structurally unsound at its foundation without taking themselves out in the process?

Controlled demolition, that’s how.

Of course what I’m talking about there is the real problem, not the problem you will hear about in the news.

Hyperinflation is not ordinary expansive inflation like we are used to in a Keynesian system. It’s not even runaway growth. Hyperinflation is the loss of confidence in a currency. In this case, following an implosion in world bond markets, and a subsequent deflation of the world derivative markets, the world will lose faith in all fiat currencies. Hyperinflation will ensue around the world. Economic premises that we are familiar with, that we are used too, financial relationships, like those of inflation to growth in equity markets, will become useless, and will in fact work in an entirely opposite manner of the way they worked before a loss of confidence. Imagine Market deflation while the value of the currency is dropping like a stone. Market deflation while prices for basic commodities and finished products are going through the roof. While interest is being jacked up on a daily basis to try and stave off the ravaging beast of inflation. If you don’t think this is possible, simply look to the fall of the USSR and Argentina for modern examples of this economic time bomb at work. Hyperinflation will be the one and only thing on the mind of every person of the world, and they will be beating that dead horse back to death nightly on every TV screen around the world.

So how does hyperinflation happen? Many people thought printing money would cause hyperinflation, and if that money had actually been let loose in the street economy, it would have. But that money was tightly controlled by a select few and disseminated into the system through financial instruments rather than loans to business. But now the tipping point has been reached, we cannot grow our way out of this mess with stocks and derivatives, and yet we cannot put that money into the hands of small business, they would only ravage big business and steal their market share. The system is full, the over-arching cycles of energy and food production are all moving into decline, and that will in turn move populations into decline. There are simply no “Consumers” left to exploit, the edges of our economic habitat have been found and fully explored. There is simply no where left to grow.

So without growth in the Keynesian system comes deflation, but they’ve stalled that deflation with artificial money printing that has propped up markets that long ago should have collapsed under the weight of their own hubris. So it, the deflation, transfers itself to the only place it can, the credit markets, sovereign debt, bonds! And so the loss of confidence begins in the bond markets, with the losses piling over into the titanic fantasy world of the derivative markets.

Derivative Markets, the only place on Earth where you could find someone to buy an option on Unicorn futures.

The Reaction of the Sheeples: It begins in the Japanese bond and derivative markets, and after that it cascades across the continent back to Europe, and anywhere else that debt exceeds an ever shrinking manageability level. Once Europe is fully enveloped in this credit crisis, expect America to follow suit soon thereafter, probably within six weeks. Interest rates on Bonds will skyrocket, leading to increases in interest rates for Residential and Commercial Property Mortgages. Soon interest will have to increase on all loans, including inter-bank lending. Once Basel III is thrown into the mix, there will be credit freezes due to decreased leverage and increased capital requirement for banks. Banks are no longer allowed to expand their way out of trouble, that’s too dangerous now, too many rogue elements out there for that.

Physical commodities begin to bring an ever widening premium over the paper markets. Electronic cash is still abundant, but actual paper currency becomes harder and harder to come by in this shadow world of capital controls. Central Banks end printing and begin to pull back on the reins, trying to tighten their money supplies. Prices at the gas station and at the grocery store explode, corporate profits implode and the equity markets tank. People’s savings and investments, their ever precious Pensions, 401k’s, and IRA’s begin to evaporate into the cyclone of a deflating debt bubble. People are losing their entire life savings and their house, the main source of their net worth, is now becoming worthless as well because no one can get a loan to buy a house, and even if they could, they couldn’t afford the ever increasing interest, you see because banks are now refusing to fix rates for more than three months because of the spiraling inflation.

Civil unrest follows as people lose their entire life’s work in a matter of weeks. People are demanding a solution to this economic disaster; they are demanding that the same system that put them into this mess be saved so that they can save something, anything, after the fall. Unemployment skyrockets as companies lose market share and credit markets dry up. It’s murder and mayhem, cities are burning, some are even claiming it’s Armageddon.

The Economic powers of the world schedule a meeting to solve this economic debt crisis and bring the hyperinflating major currencies of the world under control.

The Solution, Brought To You By Your Good Friends At The World Financial Cartel: The problem is now clear, forget the debt, forget the credit freeze, forget all the stuff that brought us here, it’s now obviously a currency crisis we face. But it just so happens, they have a solution ready to roll out. Of course they will have to jawbone it for a while to make it look good for the masses, but here’s what they’re going to do, just as soon as you’re hurting bad enough to accept it of course.

So the following is their solution to the problem they created, or something very equivalent.

First: They will create a world body, or use one of their world bodies they’ve already created, to manage world currencies and the amount of those currencies in circulation.

Second: any country that agrees to enter into, and abide by, an agreement to allow this “world body” to control the amount of that country’s, or Union’s, currency in circulation according to rules prescribed in the agreement will receive a huge discount in the amount of their sovereign debt owed. Probably something in the order of an instant haircut to bond holders of 50%, or in some instances, even more. This is probably also the point where governments begin to nationalize retirement accounts. For the people’s safety of course.

Third: all participating currencies of each country will from that point on be backed by a basket of commodities specific to that country or union. For instance, Great Britain and China, who lack many natural resources, will probably back their currency primarily with gold and silver, while other countries that are richer in natural resources, like the United States, will probably back their currency with a basket of commodities such as energy reserves, real estate, mineral reserves, and possibly some percentage of gold and silver. These currencies would all be pegged together with this circulation agreement and the amount of currency in circulation would only fluctuate according to the value of the commodities pledged by the country as determined by the open markets.

Fourth: all excess liquidity over and above the prescribed circulation limits in the agreement will be removed from the system. So they will have to have the people using these “New” backed currencies around the world turn in their old currency, at (for example sake only) say $200 old, for $100 new (now again think of why they are waiting until October to release the new $100 bill which they have been printing for three years now), of course this will be easy with your bank account and investment accounts, they will simply slash the amount of money in your account by the prescribed percentage with the keystroke of a computer (and in case you’ve been wondering why all of the bank systems have had so much trouble lately, it’s because the software capability to do this was being installed and the accounts that need to be flagged and watched have already been identified).

Fifth: all of the resources and commodities used to back the currency of the country will be placed under the defacto control of the Central Bank that issues the currency, and thereby the BIS (Bank of International Settlements), so that countries themselves cannot cheat this agreement by pledging or selling off their resources by any manner other than that prescribed by the agreement.

A Hegelian Love Story: So that’s that, and in the end they will control all of the resources of the world because that’s what they always wanted from the beginning anyway. And the people of the world, well most of them will get down on their knee’s to thank them for saving a system that left them almost broke and penniless after a lifetime of work; all because at least some small pittance of their Pension or their 401k was saved and left in their possession. After all, the problem was worldwide, so obviously we needed some vestige of World Government to solve this, right?!?!?

Nathaniel Rothschild said, “Give me control over a nations currency, and I care not who makes its laws.”

Now they will say, “Give me control over a nations resources, and we will destroy that antiquated notion of national sovereignty.”

So when this is all said and done they will not only have control of the currencies of the world, (essentially meaning a one world currency, with familiar national denominations so as not to alarm the Conspiracy Theorists) they will also have control of the resources of the entire world to mete out as they see fit.

If that doesn’t chill you to the bone, then you my friend have not been paying very close attention to the world outside of your office or home recently. Because they will also use this chaotic opportunity to roll out the worst parts of their tyrannical scientific machine of control, all in the public good of course. Only to protect you – and them – from any reprisals from the fringe elements of society that demand things like “Freedom” and “Self-Determination”. Outlaw concepts of a bygone era. And the complaint media will parrot this line, and the people, sad though it may be, when presented with their futures going up in the fires of national currencies, will go along as well. Because the failure of this system would leave them penniless and without means; freedom be damned after all, I might lose my spot at the country club!

For those of you who think this could never happen, you need only research in depth what they’ve done as far as Financial Reform and Regulation since 2010. Of course the media isn’t telling you what’s going on, so you have to look these things up, but when you look at the evidence, the laws and regulations they’ve passed since 2010, the financial moves they’ve made, objectively; well I challenge you to find any other reasonable conclusion. In writing this I have also relied on other things as well though, such as information from personal friends still in the mix in banking circles. Not surprisingly though with much of this information in hand, even these people, some very high up people, in banking circles, don’t have a full understanding of what’s coming down the pipe. It’s called compartmentalization, and game theory. It’s knowing what you can do to provoke a certain response in your opponent or even someone working for you; they’ve been doing it for ages.

Regardless of the nay-sayer’s that will undoubtedly make their way to this thread may say, I stand firmly by the conclusions I have reached. So much so, that I am betting my livelihood and life savings on it. This scenario is going to happen, I’ve never been more convinced of anything in my life, but when will it happen?

Conclusions and Solutions, Falling Out Of Love: My best guess as far as timing regarding the scenario I have placed before you is that by the end of Q3 2013 we will be in it like a fully involved fire. By Q4 2013 Chaos in the financial markets and on the street will be the order of the day. Tyranny will reign in the name of protection and security. How fast certain elements of this go, I cannot say, there are simply too many variables at play to make a definitive prediction. Just say this, by the end of 2013, you will know the direction this is headed with absolute clarity, and because you took the time to read this, you will know that I was right, and you will at least know what you should have done, or perhaps you will even have done it.

Stop looking for fast money in this market, yes there will still be a few opportunities for a fast buck available, but don’t tie up and waste your resources with that anymore. Buy and hold is the order of the day now. If you have available funds here is what I would do, you can take it as a recommendation if you like, but I have to say, I’m not a licensed investment adviser, so I don’t offer it as recommendation, merely as an example of my financial strategy for the next two to five years.

With any “available” funds, I would first pay off any debt I had. Interest rates will likely be going up in the very near future, and if you were waiting for a signal of that to pay off some cheap interest debt you have, then consider the recent bond movements in U.S. Treasuries and Japanese Bonds as your signal. Interest will be going up in short order, but I also wouldn’t keep a lot of money in the bank. Trying to capture money through interest on savings is liable to become a dangerous game in the scenario I’ve laid out, as there will very likely be many bank closures forthcoming, and credit disruptions in the banking industry.

Second, I would buy non-perishable food. I don’t think you will have to have years and years’ worth in stock according to this scenario, but six months certainly wouldn’t hurt.

Third, I would keep enough paper currency for one or two month’s expenses, the rest I would put into commodities that you can hold physically. For most, that is gold or silver, but if you have land that you can grow crops or livestock on that might also mean extra fuel, feed, seed, or animals for consumption.

Fourth, if I had more saved than would pay for three years expenses, I would take that excess and buy agricultural land. NOT SECOND/RENTAL HOUSES OR COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE. If the agricultural land you choose has a house, so much the better, but don’t buy it just because of a house, or buy anything in the way of land with the idea of re-selling it in the next five to ten years, buy it with the idea of living on it for the next five to ten years, then re-assess your position in relation to the economy.

Well that’s it, I’m sorry it was so long, but it’s a big subject. I hope it will help you and perhaps generate some critical thinking out there. More than anything I just hope it helps. If one person gets a head’s up from me, then I consider my mission accomplished.

Nothing about this is going to be easy, time tables will change as circumstances arise, chaos will be the order of the day. Wars may even start over this. So I hope you will all stay safe, brave new world or no, because remember, in the end; The New World Order will be run by the same people that brought you The Old World Order…

Despite all the media hype about things going well (our media is hyping the signs that the economy is growing again), they may not be going well!

I think that to a certain extent some sort of correction was expected for later this year - but is the hype about things going well a trap to lure small investors to part with their cash?

When You Get This Many Hindenburg Omens, The Stock Market Is Supposed To Crash

Wall Street's chart gurus have spotted the ominous "Hindenburg Omen" in the stock market today.
Today's sighting is the sixth one in just eight days, and that's pretty significant for folks who believe history repeats itself.

Last week, SentimenTrader's Jason Goepfert discussed the clustering of Hindenburg Omens. Here's an excerpt via UBS's Art Cashin (It's still relevant today):

Quote:
With the latest market rally, the Omens are flaring up again. There have been 5 Omens triggered out of the past 8 trading sessions (your data may vary - we're using the same sources we've always used for historical data). That's actually the closest-grouped cluster since early November 2007.

It's extremely rare to see as many Omens occurring together as we've seen over the past 50 days. The last time was prior to the bear market in 2007. The time before that was prior to the bear market in 2000.

Timely story me thinks :hmm :sherlock

$100 Bills To Be Destroyed After Printing Mistake At Factory

A small printing error is presumably proving very costly for the U.S. government after a currency factory ruined 30 million of the next generation of $100 bills.

Originally slated to go into circulation in 2011, the new bills have experienced a variety of setbacks, the latest of which involves a printing mistake known as "mashing."

Darlene Anderson, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP), told The New Yorker that mashing involves applying too much ink to the paper and happens "infrequently." Still, the error has forced the Federal Reserve to return tens of millions of notes back to the Washington, D.C., facility and demand its money back, according to the report. The returned notes will be destroyed.

The mistake was discovered during a routine inspection, Anderson told ABC News. Inspectors noticed ”too much ink was used to print a small number of notes. As a result the ink in these notes didn’t stay in the area it was intended for.”

Despite the snafu, the new $100 bills will be introduced as planned on Oct. 8.

However, The New Yorker reports that an internal memo sent by BEP director Larry Felix noted that the nation's currency factory in Texas would have to work overtime to make up for the other facility's mistake.

“There are dire consequences involved here because BEP sells Federal Reserve notes to the Board to finance our entire operation,” Felix wrote in the memo. “If the BEP does not meet the order, the BEP does not get paid.”

When the new bills are released, they will include small 3-D pieces embedded in the paper, a color-shifting Liberty Bell design and a new secret message in Ben Franklin's collar. The features are designed to make the bills harder to counterfeit.

While the government has been cagey in terms of describing just how much this latest error will cost, at least it doesn't have an apparent odor issue on its hands: Many Canadians believe their country's new $100 notes smell like maple syrup.

Cyprus 2.0 – Hidden In The Chaos – Bail Ins Continue – Poland Confiscates Half Of Private Pension Funds To Cut Sovereign Debt Load!

http://investmentwatchblog.com/poland-confiscates-half-of-private-pension-funds-to-cut-sovereign-debt-load/

Quote:
While the world was glued to the developments in the Mediterranean in the past week, Poland took a page straight out of Rahm Emanuel’s playbook and in order to not let a crisis go to waste, announced quietly that it would transfer to the state – i.e., confiscate – the bulk of assets owned by the country’s private pension funds (many of them owned by such foreign firms as PIMCO parent Allianz, AXA, Generali, ING and Aviva), without offering any compensation. In effect, the state just nationalized roughly half of the private sector pension fund assets, although it had a more politically correct name for it: pension overhaul.

Saddletramp has reposted his original economic analysis in light of current events and has added some up-to-date analysis:

Posted 8/21:

So the story on everyone's mind right now is The Fed and the apparent signal that they intend to begin tapering on Ben Bernanke's time line, starting in Sept of 2013...

Bullshit...

The Fed is already tapering, and I believe that will become apparent in their August Financial Statement, but why?

Because they're BROKE ON THEIR ASS!!!

How, you ask, can an entity which prints fiat currency be broke?

Because they have to operate off of a balance sheet, and right now they have over $2 Trillion Dollar worth of Long Term U.S. Debt on that balance sheet, but those bonds are losing value every day, and that is why their capital is being hit...and I mean hard.

You see they can print electronic money to buy bonds, and as long as those bonds appreciate or keep the same value, then their balance sheet isn't effected, in fact for awhile in 2010-11 they actually built capital because the Interest Rates were falling and the Bonds were appreciating in value.

But now, well now the value of these Bonds are dropping like a stone, and while the Fed doesn't have to really account for that until they sell that bond (they don't have to do Mark to Market accounting) they still keep and internal track on how much Capital they really have...and the cupboard is almost bare!

So, ordinarily the Fed would dump negative capital off on the U.S. Taxpayer by making a "Negative Interest" deposit to the Treasury (an asset that is actually a liability), but the Treasury is tapped, they're up against the debt ceiling, so again, the cupboard is bare...

Furthermore the BIS (Bank of International Settlements, The Central Bank of Central Banks) has told the Central Banks of the world to STOP STIMULATING NOW!!!

So the Fed is up against it, now they will have to make it look like they're trying to provide a soft landing for markets that are dropping like a stone with some "well placed" bond purchases here and there to try and keep everything from falling off of a cliff overnight!

In other words...It's on!

Now the impetus returns to Japan, WATCH JAPAN!!! They've been selling U.S. Debt for liquidity since May, but now they're losing money on the Bonds they own, and that is money Japan can't afford to lose...

Also, watch the 10 Yr Treasury, if that Yield goes past 3.5%...it will accelerate like a runaway train. When you see that, you have weeks left...not months, not years!

New $100 Bill Release Delayed Again...
MIAMI (CBSMiami/CNN) – Imagine having $3 billion in cash sitting in front of you, teasing you – that you couldn’t use. That’s what happened to the Federal Reserve this year because the country’s money factory messed up.

One of America’s most familiar exports is the $100 bill.

“We estimate that as many as two-thirds of all $100 notes circulate outside the United States,” said Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

“It’s certainly one of the most valuable bills to counterfeit,” Ben Mazzotta said, a currency expert from The Fletcher School at Tufts University.

The Mint was supposed to print a new design back in 2011. However, they keep botching the bill. The first batch ended up with a blank spot, and the second round was lifted by thieves on their way to the Federal Reserve.

Now, the problem is excess ink.

“Ironically it appears to be not those advanced features. It’s the way the paper they are using for this generation of printing is responding to the weight of the printing press,” Mazzotta said.

The error could cost taxpayers about $4 million because the current bill costs 7.8 cents to produce, compared to 12.6 for the new one.

 Re: Impending Financial Collapse
some more links on this topic...

Simon


This first link comes from this discussion site. This thread is for JesterX, a gifted psychic who often receives information from his guides, however the link itself came from someone else.

http://www.propheciesonline.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=12&sid=f4a43d46de9f9c551a3c05ea8e7329ba

----------------------------------------------------

http://www.moneynews.com/MKTNews/billionaires-dump-economist-stock/2012/08/29/id/450265

Despite the 6.5% stock market rally over the last three months, a handful of billionaires are quietly dumping their American stocks . . . and fast.

Warren Buffett, who has been a cheerleader for U.S. stocks for quite some time, is dumping shares at an alarming rate. He recently complained of “disappointing performance” in dyed-in-the-wool American companies like Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, and Kraft Foods.

In the latest filing for Buffett’s holding company Berkshire Hathaway, Buffett has been drastically reducing his exposure to stocks that depend on consumer purchasing habits. Berkshire sold roughly 19 million shares of Johnson & Johnson, and reduced his overall stake in “consumer product stocks” by 21%. Berkshire Hathaway also sold its entire stake in California-based computer parts supplier Intel.

With 70% of the U.S. economy dependent on consumer spending, Buffett’s apparent lack of faith in these companies’ future prospects is worrisome.

<snip>

=================================

There is a website (called http://investmentwatchblog.com/ ) which seems to be a constantly refreshing menu of links to pages on the topic of financial doom, war, disease. Below are links to two pages - there are many many more!
--------------------------------------------------

This page has much more than my snip, including several youtube interviews and more links.

http://investmentwatchblog.com/stunning-us-recoveries-keep-getting-worse-and-worse-stock-market-collapse-called-by-wells-fargo/

The banks are admitting it and the media is now paying attention which is absolutely unprecedented. The depression is coming and now the big players are admitting it. Get ready folks its going to be a wild ride.

The Wells Fargo strategist has been bearish on stocks all year, even as she watched the S&P 500 (^GSPC) add 21 percent. And on Thursday’s ” Futures Now ,” Adams reiterated her call that the index would close out the year at 1,440.
“Our target is based on fundamentals,” Adams insisted. “We’re basing our target on typical valuation measures, given the level of interest rates and also on earnings forecasts. And that’s why our target is relatively low.”

In fact, “low” is somewhat of an understatement. Adams’ target implies that the market will drop 16 percent in little more than three months, erasing everything that stocks gained after the year’s first day of trading. This makes her one of the lone bears on the Street.

---------------------

Then there is this page...

http://investmentwatchblog.com/james-rawles-warns-be-prepared-to-hunker-down-for-months/

a brief excerpt:
For someone in an urban area who plans to hunker down and doesn’t plan to bug out with country cousins, one thing that should be at the top of everyone’s list but that’s very much overlooked is… if you’re in a situation where you have power because you have photovoltaics but your neighbors don’t, you really should concentrate on black-out curtains for your windows. You need to black out your house completely, without any light leaks so that your house will look just as black as any other on your block.

Otherwise you’re going to be targeted as the rich guy. You don’t want to become a loot-me-beacon at night.

Post Re: Impending Financial Collapse
Simon - Berkshire Hathaway made $60 million dollars on its sale of Intel stocks in 2012 - a return of 25%. Not a bad rate of return for a year, IMHO.

http://www.csmonitor.com/Business/The-Reformed-Broker/2012/0914/Berkshire-Hathaway-sells-Intel-stock-nets-60-million

I quietly disagree that we are facing impending financial collapse. IMHO, things are much, much better than they were 12 months ago - especially in my area. The house next door to me sold in 3 months! That is unheard of in my neighborhood. My neighbor made a PROFIT of $25,000 on the sale. This is the first home that has sold for a profit in my neighborhood in nearly 3 years.

The stock market may, indeed, be due for a correction but IF the US Congress can get its act together and (finally/at last) pass a budget - we may actually have averted this bullet.

Blue, I could say the same about here as well, things really do look like they are starting to pick up. So much economic data is looking just that little bit rosier than one would ever have expected.

However, for me to believe that things reallly are getting better, and its not just media hype, then we still need to be experiencing improving times in February 2014.

October is usaully when the really bad news comes, and with severe geophyscial events also expected this month, so I won't start celebrating yet.



This page talks about the derivatives market in plain and simple terms and why it represents a ticking financial timebomb. Written by James Bailey it also points out that billionaire investors Warren Buffet and George Soros have both recently sold nearly all of their stock holdings, this being something which suggests that they possibly know something about the near-future that the rest of us do not. (but really *really* do need to know).

http://z3news.com/w/derivative-panic-co ... l-markets/

A quote:
Quote:
Derivatives are financial products or securities that derive their value from the value of an underlying asset. The most common underlying assets include stocks, bonds, commodities, interest rates, and currencies. Examples are interest rate swaps, options contracts, insurance contracts, futures contracts, credit default swaps, and structured debt contracts.

The derivatives market is ten times bigger than the annual GDP of the entire world!


James also explains about Glass-Steagall, its benefits and how by no longer existing we are now facing very serious financial doom.

Its a real eye-opener for the ordinary person who does not understand the financial industry.

Another update from Saddletramp:

Many have questioned when I would be doing a major update to the Grand Finale, and I have been waiting patiently for the events of the last three months or so to put themselves into some sort of usable perspective. And after numerous conversations with my connections in banking, at last I think we are ready to decipher the meaning of all of this. I hope you will find this information as valuable as I did.

snip

along with the tapering of QE, much of my thinking about the timing of this major economic crash involves the implementation of Basel III Banking Regulations in the United States and the E.U., and at the time I wrote The Grand Finale back in May of 2013 the stated objective was for Basel III implementation in Q3 or Q4 of 2013.

(Definition of Basel III here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basel_III)

Many things I talked about in the thesis and the entirety of that thread have come to pass, but some key things have happened since, and continue to happen, that now warrant a major update to the thesis I presented.

So without belaboring a background which you can read or watch on video for yourself, I will get right to the point.

Behind The Green Door

“Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it…” ~ Sara Shepard

snip

Obama, in the face of world discontent, actually did something unheard of for his administration; he decided to obey the Constitution and ceded his war powers back to Congress. Regulators decided that the banks were behind on Basel III implementation so they pushed it back to the beginning of 2014. The Fed decided the economy, which they had been advertising as being in a full and sustainable recovery, was too fragile to taper QE at this time (despite the indisputable fact that QE was showing a severe decline into a negative rate of return). Then last, but not least, the Government Shutdown ended uneventfully, except for the convenient fact that lawmakers gave the Government the power of unlimited borrowing for four full months. (Oct 13 thru Feb 14).

“I, like God, do not play with dice, or believe in coincidence…” ~ V for Vendetta

So what happened? Why did they take the controlled demolition of the world economy off of the table? In talking with my friend at the Dallas Federal Reserve a few things in the thinking of the Fed have become apparent.

1.) The Taper of QE to Infinity is inexorably tied to Basel III, though they don’t have to begin at precisely the same time.

2.) The Banks were not ready for Basel III or Taper in Q4 2013.

Remember in my original Grand Finale thread where I said the world economic crash would be a “controlled demolition”, well some of the workers were still in the building when the charges were set to go off…

Mission abort!

But make no mistake, the demolition is not off, it has merely been postponed.

snip

.... quietly and inevitably the Middle-East is heating up again, the Fed is talking about tapering again (after re-loading their Capital at taxpayer expense of course), Basel III is on for implementation on January 1, 2014, and shortly thereafter the Government will be entering another “Shutdown” crisis in February of 2014. The entire scenario is playing out all over again, the question is; will they pull the trigger this time, or back off again.

I would argue that the dry run stress test is done, the results are in, and it’s time for the controlled demolition to begin, and here is why.

First, the Government has given itself unlimited borrowing authority until February, 2014. They have purchased bullets and beans; hired extra security, stockpiled resources and man power around the country, and they are currently borrowing extra money to hoard cash for the coming calamity.

Second, Basel III implementation is on, and even the smaller banks have now had a full year to prepare for it. Because as I argued in my original Grand Finale thread, the key to all of this, and one of the primary things to watch for, is the full and final implementation of phase I of Basel III. Because you must understand, Basel III was never meant to help the world economy, in fact it will destroy the economy by finally causing the credit crisis they have been preparing for since 2008. Basel III regulations are entirely meant to prepare the banks to either survive or be eaten by bigger banks in an economic crash to end all economic crashes. They make it easier for smaller banks to be bailed-in, and/or liquidated, and they make it easier for the larger banks to feed off of the smaller ones. Basel III will also make it much easier for the powers that be to steal 401k’s, IRA’s and Pension Funds. This is the sum total of these regulations, nothing more. This is the foundation they will build from when the controlled demolition is complete, and it is a foundation built on the bones of the people of the world.

So as September/October, 2013 begins to replay itself in late Q4, 2013 and Q1, 2014, here is what I urge you to look for and be cognizant of. Basel III is currently slated for full implementation in January of 2014, so watch for any changes in that, AND watch the yield on the benchmark 10 Year Treasury Note, 3.00% is your warning siren, prepare yourself. And if that yield stays in the 3.25 to 3.50 range for a couple of consecutive days, it’s go time.

People ask me all the time if I’m ready to, “call it”?

If 10 Yr. Treasury Note Yields rise to and stay in the 3.25 to 3.50% range for a couple of consecutive days, don’t wait for me to call it, everything I laid out in The Grand Finale, an Economic Love Story or Fifty Shades of Green is about to come to pass, so…consider it called.

Post Re: Impending Financial Collapse
What might cause things to change again are events which happen before then.

According to this message there is going to be some sort of event around 23-25 November which could be significant.

http://www.stankovuniversallaw.com/2013/11/finally-elohim-confirm-surprising-message-mpr-progressing-smoothly-opening-megaportal-11-11-occur-weeks-november-23-25/

They are talking about a megnetic pole shift (earth? Sun? I don't know) which will cause some / geophysical activity and plunge us into a severe winter (mini-ice age, perhaps).

Other channeled sources have also suggested that this month (November 2013) will be when whatever they have been talking about finally comes to pass.

According to reports on dinarguru the RV is poised to happen 'anytime now' and apparantly the astrology of this month includes the possibility of financial events which start to benefit people.

Something else which I've seen said is that around the same time as the mpr (which is also supposed to be when we switch from 3D to 4D or even 5D) many sts people will find that they experience a 'walk-in'. In short, the sts soul will be forced to leave the body and a sto soul will replace it... this is said to be going to cause the human body to change its thinking / its actions / how it relates to others, etc. Do I believe this? I cannot answer - I do not know enough to answer. All I can say is that if it does happen then maybe the planned rash will happen differently, and that walk-ins are real - I know someone who is a walk-in.

Simon

I just saw another post from Saddletramp regarding the upcoming World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland quoting Klaus Schwab, the WEF's founder and executive chairman.

Quote:
The world is complex, it's fast-moving, it's interconnected, and we in Davos want to provide a mirror to the world as it is. It is not a meeting devoted to one set of issues. It's a meeting that address the complexity of our world,.... "We need to push the reset button. The world is still much too much caught in a crisis-management mode. We should look at our future in a much more constructive and strategic way. That is what Davos is about." He added that Davos is a unique forum because, "There is no place in the world where so many stakeholders of our global future assemble, all united by the mission of improving the state of the world."

Mega default of financial trust in China scheduled for January 31

On Friday, Chinese state media reported that China Credit Trust Co. warned investors that they may not be repaid when one of its wealth management products matures on January 31, the first day of the Year of the Horse. The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China sold the China Credit Trust product to its customers in inland Shanxi province. This bank, the world’s largest by assets, on Thursday suggested it will not compensate investors, stating in a phone interview with Reuters that “a situation completely does not exist in which ICBC will assume the main responsibility.”

<snip>

Meanwhile, Clif High has recently said this:
Quote:
Temporal markers falling now: "Tears of Red Smoke" - seems to be pointing to a [global stock crisis] that will [originate] in [china] that will be about [counterfeit stocks (and bonds) = FAKES] that are [loose in global stock markets]. Will reach the US markets in late Jan or early Feb and have the words [ > (greater than) HALF] of [ALL US STOCKS] are [FAKE (counterfit)]. (1/4/2014)


http://halfpasthuman.com/index.html

==================

We also need to watch the bird / avian flu situation. It seems to be spreading and the Chinese New Year celebrations could see many more people become infected, with the unknowing unwell then spreading the disease when they return to work after the holidays.

On the Neutrimedial Report radio broadcast its been suggested that soon there will be a curfew period in which people will be staying at home, as happened in the flu pandemic after WW1.

If this was to happen it would likely make things even worse!

Yes, Simon the H5N1 case in Canada is worrying. Most government types were expecting H7N9 which is currently circulating in China. We have a thread on Avian Influenza here:

http://www.thegoldenthread.info/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=94

Some of these posts are a couple of years old but I think we will be regularly updating them fairly soon.

Right now, in Texas, we are dealing with an epidemic of swine flu and regular flu.
