- Mario Monti: we have a week to save the eurozone!
by John Hooper in Rome, The Guardian
Italian prime minister warns that there is no room for failure in talks between single currency’s big four countries
Italy‘s prime minister, Mario Monti, has warned of the apocalyptic consequences of failure at next week’s summit of EU leaders, outlining a potential death spiral that could threaten the political and economic future of Europe.
The Italian leader is to hold talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, the French president, François Hollande, and Spain’s prime minister, Mariano Rajoy, in the hope that the single currency’s big four countries can pave the way for a breakthrough at next week’s meeting.
Speaking to the Guardian and a group of leading European newspapers, Monti said that, without a successful outcome at the summit, “there would be progressively greater speculative attacks on individual countries, with harassment of the weaker countries”. The attacks would be focused not only on those who had failed to respect EU guidelines, but also on those like Italy, which he said had abided by the rules “but which carry with them from the past a high debt”.
Monti warned: “A large part of Europe would find itself having to continue to put up with very high interest rates that would then impact on the states and also indirectly on firms. This is the direct opposite of what is needed for economic growth.”
Outlining the result of a failure at the talks, Monti said that, faced with creeping economic paralysis, “the frustration of the public towards Europe would grow”, creating a vicious circle. “To emerge in good shape from this crisis of the eurozone and the European economy, ever more integration is needed,” said Monti. Yet, if the summit failed to resolve the problems quickly, “public opinion, but also that of the governments and parliament… will turn against that greater integration”.
Monti said he could see the beginnings of the process “even in the Italian parliament, which has traditionally been pro-European and no longer is”. He made his remarks hours after his predecessor, Silvio Berlusconi, acknowledged that his party had bled support because of its backing for the Monti government’s unpopular budgetary measures and spoke openly for the first time of the electoral advantage it could derive from torpedoing Monti’s non-party cabinet of technocrats.
Monti signalled that the key eurozone leaders were working on a plan designed to halt the spread of debt contagion while satisfying Germany’s refusal to sanction financial irresponsibility. The plan, he said, was one of the “absolutely necessary” outcomes of next week’s summit.
The first outcome, he said, would be a clear sign of the eurozone’s willingness to integrate further “in such a way that Europeans know where they’re going… [and] the markets are convinced that, having given birth to the euro, the will [of the member states] to make it indissoluble and irrevocable is there and will be strengthened by other steps towards integration”.
- Greyerz – We Are Headed For Panic As Global Markets Tumble!
With global stock markets plunging and gold coming under serious selling pressure, today Egon von Greyerz told King World News the entire financial system is under immense pressure and we will eventually see a massive panic. Egon von Greyerz is founder and managing partner at Matterhorn Asset Management out of Switzerland. Here is what Greyerz had to say about the ongoing crisis: “Eric, the entire financial system is under immense pressure. First you have the ESFS, the European Stability Fund, they are saying they must buy euro debt. The problem is that fund is now just 440 billion euros, which is nowhere near enough to support all of these failing European countries or their banking systems.”
“The Fed has just extended Operation Twist. This is just an indirect way of printing money. But what the Fed hinted at is even more important, which is significant downside risk. The risk in the financial world as a whole right now is enormous. The Fed knows this and they are trying to avoid direct QE, but they will not be able to do that for very long. We also now have a new scheme to give UK banks 160 billion pounds of cheap money. This is the government lending to the banks….
- The Fed and Central Banks around the world are just buying time before the collapse, but the end of this debt-based Ponzi scheme is near. I talk with David Schectman, the Founder of Miles Franklin to get his views on the worldwide collapse, and David helps us keep the big picture in clear view.

- Gold is returning to the monetary system as money! The plan is for a One World Currency backed by gold. By classifying gold as Tier 1 asset, the signal for the banks to accumulate gold is given. The idea is: If a bank is insolvent with US$10B of debts and US$1B of physical gold. By revaluing the price of gold upwards by say 20x, the bank is straightaway solvent since the physical gold they own is now worth US$20B. In this way, gold has extinguished debt and the banking system is saved !
Gold Becomes a Tier 1 Asset Class for Banks!
Misdirection by MSM as Gold Moves Towards The Banking System
Despite what the Main Stream Media (MSM) or “Financial Pundits” tell you, the gold bull market is far from over. In fact, it is just starting, in our opinion. While the misdirected financial world tell you that gold is in a bubble and it has burst, the central bankers and government organizations all know it is far from over. In fact, gold is moving towards the banking system and not away from it. We all know that many central banks are now net buyers of gold and their holdings are increasing as their need to diversify away from risky assets and foreign bonds only grows.
Central banks around the world are continuing to stock up on gold. We can now add Kazakhstan’s central bank to the grow list of bankers wanting to hold gold as a part of their currency reserve. The Kazakh central bank intends to have 20% of reserves in gold, this is up from the current 14-15% currently held. They plan to purchase 20 tonnes of gold this year, mostly from local producers. They also mentioned a few weeks ago that they would cut their Euro holding to 25 % from 30%. We can also add Kazakhstan to the growing number of central bankers which are building up gold holdings including China, Russia, Mexico, Colombia and South Korea.
The price of gold is now hitting all time highs in India, one of the biggest buyers of gold around the world. Prices have reached an all-time high of $544.74 US (Rs 30420) per 10 grams. With a slowing economy and low demand for the Indian rupee, it has been losing value lately and still remains weak. However, gold demand is still robust even at these elevated prices as investors in India still consider gold a safe haven as it counters the effects of inflation and exchange rate fluctuations.
Over the past five years, gold has provided Indian investors with a 27.19% annualized return versus a pathetic 2.67% in the equity market. This trend and move to gold has only grown in the last year. Gold assets under management by funds have increased almost 100% $1.83 billion by April 2012, last year the value was $981 million. In 2011, the gold ETFs in India saw a net inflow of $725 million. For thousands of years the Indian culture has had an affinity for gold, and that will never change, and neither will their demand for physical at elevated prices. Why? Indians understand that gold is money and a true form of saving. It’s the only way to protect assets and wealth from government theft, something the West is still learning.
Even the good ol’ USSA is starting to recognize gold as a tier one asset class. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) just issued a notice regarding a new policy proposal on how banks should revise the measurement of risk-weighted assets by implementing changes made by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) to international regulatory capital standards and by implementing aspects of the Dodd-Frank Act. Under the proposal the following assets would carry a zero percent risk weighting, notice how gold bullion is listed as the second item:
A. Zero Percent Risk-Weighted Items
The following exposures would receive a zero percent risk weight under the proposal:
- Gold bullion
- Claims on certain supranational entities (such as the International Monetary Fund) and certain multilateral development banking organizations
- Claims on and exposures unconditionally guaranteed by sovereign entities that meet certain criteria (as discussed below).
So regardless of what the MSM says, we continue to see more central bankers buying and hoarding gold. New proposals by government banking agencies are being introduced into the system and gold is included as a tier one asset to hold with ZERO RISK. All the signs are in place and what the MSM hasn’t been told yet is that gold is coming back into the banking system.
We are in a world where currency wars are being fought daily, and as the system continues to collapse under its own weight of paper printing, gold will be the go to asset and possibly the last man standing. Don’t be fooled by what the MSM says, they rarely know what they are talking about and are paid to misdirect the puppets. Gold is here to stay.
- The 13th Tribe of Khazaria! Ashkenazi Khazars Are Not The Jews of The Bible!
If almost 98% of JEWS we know today are NOT semitic, wouldn’t the term ANTI-SEMITIC be null and void? I made this video with 3 Jewish friends who admit they are not Semites!!!!
“Many [modern-day Jews] of whom have clamored to go back [to Palestine] NEVER had antecedents [physical ancestors] in that part of the world …. The OVERWHELMING majority of Jews are descendants from the converts of Khazaria and elsewhere who ADOPTED Judaism…. This VIEW of the NON-ethnicity of the largest portion of Jewry IS SUSTAINED by such prominent anthropologists as Ripley, Weissenberg, Hertz, Boas, Pittard, Fishberg, Mead and others. . “
- Dr. Alfred M. Lilienthal
“… Though many Jews are NOT of Semitic origin, we are the religious, spiritual, and national [but NOT genetic] descendants of those who first formed the early foundations of Judaism who were Semites”
- Rabbi Cyril A. Stanway in “Viewpoints,” Thursday, November 8, 1990, in the Sun-News (Las Cruces, New Mexico)
“. . these Eastern European, Yiddish-speaking Jews who form the Zionist group practically in toto [almost entirely], have NEITHER a geographic, historic NOR ethnic connection with either the Jews [Israelite Judahites] of the Old Testament OR the land known today as Palestine. “
- Jewish Dr. Benjamin H. Freedman, published by the National Economic Council, Inc. as “Council Letter No. 177 (October 15, 1947)
- Modern Judaism is not the religion of the Bible! See here!
- Modern Ashkenazi Jews are not the Jews of the Bible! God’s covenant was with Abraham and his biological descendents. Ashkenazi Jews are not semitic and their ancestors were never in Palestine. They are not the descendents of Abraham/Isaac/Israel. They have no right to stay in Palestine. What the Zionists are doing to the Palestinians is called: genocide and ethnic cleansing! Zionist ’666′ Israel is not the Israel of the Bible! It is a LIE!
1980 Jewish Almanac
“Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew.” (1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3)
The Jewish Encyclopedia:
“Khazars, a non-Semitic, Asiatic, Mongolian tribal nation who emigrated into Eastern Europe about the first century, who were converted as an entire nation to Judaism in the seventh century by the expanding Russian nation which absorbed the entire Khazar population, and who account for the presence in Eastern Europe of the great numbers of Yiddish-speaking Jews in Russia, Poland, Lithuania, Galatia, Besserabia and Rumania.”
The American Peoples Encyclopedia … for 1954 at 15-292 records the following in reference to the Khazars: “In the year 740 A.D. the Khazars were officially converted to Judaism. A century later they were crushed by the incoming Slavic-speaking people and were scattered over central Europe where they were known as Jews.
According to the standard Jewish Encyclopedia 96% of all the Jews known to the world today are descendents of the Khazar tribes of Russia, Eastern Europe and western Mongolia.
- The Bible specifically forbids the ill-treatment of people different from us ie: strangers. What Zionist ’666′ Israel does to the Palestinians is called: genocide and ethnic cleansing! Zionist ’666′ Israel is in total violation of God’s law!
“You shall neither mistreat a stranger nor oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”
“Also you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the heart of a stranger, because you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”
‘And if a stranger dwells with you in your land, you shall not mistreat him.’
The stranger who dwells among you shall be to you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
‘When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field when you reap, nor shall you gather any gleaning from your harvest. You shall leave them for the poor and for the stranger: I am the LORD your God.’
You shall have the same law for the stranger and for one from your own country; for I am the LORD your God.
22 It shall be that you will divide it by lot as an inheritance for yourselves, and for the strangers who dwell among you and who bear children among you. They shall be to you as native-born among the children of Israel; they shall have an inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. 23 And it shall be that in whatever tribe the stranger dwells, there you shall give him his inheritance,” says the Lord GOD.
The so-called Star of David is a Satanic symbol. Satanists and occult practitioners use it for calling Satan and demons!
Former Satanist, Bill Schnoebelen (now born again Christian)
“A hexagram must be present to call forth a demon” and ” it is a very powerful tool to invoke Satan”. – “To the sorcerer, the hexagram is a powerful tool to invoke Satan.” In fact, the word “hex” — as to put a “hex” or “curse” on people — comes from this word. – If you examine the so-called “Star of David,” or hexagram, closely, you will discover something astonishing. It has six points, forms six equilateral triangles, and in its interior forms a six sided hexagon — thus it reveals the number of Satan’ antichrist beast, — 6 points, 6 triangles, and the 6 sides of the hexagram — 666 !!!

“ … it turns out the creation of Israel had not, after all, been a haphazard fight in which the Arabs fled their homes at the directives of their own leaders, but it had been an unprovoked, systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing by the Jewish militia involving massacres, terrorism and the wholesale looting of an entire nation.” - from 4:22 onwards
- Be careful of those who call themselves Jews and are not but are a Synagogue of Satan. These Zionists would like the world to believe in their psyop, propaganda that Iran which has ZERO nuclear bombs and which does not have a nuclear weapons program is a nuclear threat to the world. Just how stupid do they think we are? The real nuclear threat in the Middle East is Zionist ’666′ Israel with its 400+ nuclear bombs. This Satanic counterfeit has been arming their submarines with nuclear bombs and rehearsing their war plans against Iran. But they want the world to believe they are the victims! This is a genocidal criminal state which has been practising ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians for the past 64+ years! Do not be taken in by this nation flying the Satanic ’666′ Hexagram flag! This is all about executing the Satanic World War 3 Plan!
Israel: “all options” open after Iran talks fail!
(Reuters) – Israel responded on Wednesday to a lack of progress in talks aimed at curbing Iran’s nuclear program by demanding that the West impose stiffer economic sanctions on Tehran and hinting anew that a military option was still on the table.
Six world powers and Iran failed to secure a breakthrough at talks in Moscow this week, the third round under the latest diplomatic initiative, and set no date for more political negotiations. “It is time for the United States and Western powers to impose more severe sanctions in the oil embargo and financial sectors in order to stop Iran’s nuclear development program,” Vice Prime Minister Shaul Mofaz of the centrist Kadima party said in a written statement after talks in Washington with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Mofaz, a former defense minister and military chief, said that in addition to economic steps there was a need “to continue to prepare all other options”, an oblique suggestion that a military attack to prevent Iran developing a nuclear weapon remained a possible course of action. While Western powers suspect Iran of trying to develop the capacity to build a nuclear bomb, Iran says its nuclear program is destined for energy production alone.
Before reports of the Moscow talks breaking up, Mofaz was quoted as telling reporters in Washington that any use of military power “should be the last option, and I believe that this option should be led by the U.S. and the Western countries”.
“Iran doesn’t frighten me and I don’t think it should frighten the American people. They don’t have a bomb. They haven’t made a decision to build one. They don’t have the means to deliver one. And the Israelis have 300 atomic bombs! I mean who presents the existential threat to whom?” - Pat Buchanan (7:58 onwards)
- China is the factory to the world. China PMI figures are telling us that the world is in recession! Do not believe the recovery hype and BS statistics from the west!
Markets Losing Hope After China PMI Hits 7 Month Low!
by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/
HSBC’s Flash Manufacturing PMI printed at 48.1 – its lowest in 7 months as contraction continues in the world’s growth engine – as inventories rise at a faster rate and new export orders plunged at the fastest rate since March 2009. Risk markets were already leaking lower before this but extended losses with ES down 6pts from the close (and over 11 from the day’s highs). Treasuries are bleeding a little lower in yield but the real action is an exaggerated slide in WTI (which is rapidly heading towards a sub-$80 handle) and EURUSD which has dropped back to the day’s lows around 1.2660. Copper, Gold, and Silver are also sliding lower as AUD weakens (as we suggested last night) back to 1.0150.
- Who is behind the Arab Spring and all the problems in the Middle East? It is the Illuminist western ruling power. They foment unrest, wars, chaos … for their coming Luciferian New World Order via their Illuminist intelligence agencies: CIA, MI6, Mossad …. etc.
C.I.A. Said to Aid in Steering Arms to Syrian Opposition!
By ERIC SCHMITT, http://www.nytimes.com/
WASHINGTON — A small number of C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey, helping allies decide which Syrian opposition fighters across the border will receive arms to fight the Syrian government, according to American officials and Arab intelligence officers.
The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the officials said.
The C.I.A. officers have been in southern Turkey for several weeks, in part to help keep weapons out of the hands of fighters allied with Al Qaeda or other terrorist groups, one senior American official said. The Obama administration has said it is not providing arms to the rebels, but it has also acknowledged that Syria’s neighbors would do so.
The clandestine intelligence-gathering effort is the most detailed known instance of the limited American support for the military campaign against the Syrian government. It is also part of Washington’s attempt to increase the pressure on President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, who has recently escalated his government’s deadly crackdown on civilians and the militias battling his rule. With Russia blocking more aggressive steps against the Assad government, the United States and its allies have instead turned to diplomacy and aiding allied efforts to arm the rebels to force Mr. Assad from power.
