Beyond Ferguson: Protests Planned In 83 Cities, Demonstrators Given “Direct Action Training”!

  • Published on Nov 20, 2014
    http://www.undergroundworldnews.com

    Everyone knows the government, with its lapdog mainstream media in lockstep, has whipped up the Ferguson situation into a total frenzy.
    -
    It doesn’t matter what the grand jury decides now. Fear and anger are very powerful weapons and everyone who has allowed the powers that (shouldn’t) be to steer their emotions on this one has taken the bait.
    -
    The cops have stocked up on nearly $200k worth of riot gear, less-lethal ammunition and the like. Ferguson residents have been advised to go get guns because the cops won’t be able to protect them all from what’s coming. Firearm sales in the area have skyrocketed. Everyone is on edge.
    -
    Missouri’s governor has now preemptively declared a 30-day state of emergency and called out the National Guard — and the grand jury hasn’t even made it’s decision yet!
    -
    Basically, it’s on. Ferguson, however, is not the only city set to hold protests immediately following the Darren Wilson grand jury announcement. Actually, they aren’t even being referred to as protests anymore. They are now being called “planned responses.”

Gerald Celente: First Financial Calamity Then War!

  • Global Economy on Unquestionable Decline Leading to War-Gerald Celente! 
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Top trends researcher Gerald Celente is forecasting a slowing global economy in 2015, and oil is a leading indicator. Celente explains, “It’s all in oil.  We’ve been talking about oil prices since they peaked in June of this year.  Now, you are seeing a 30% decline in Brent crude and West Texas (crude oil).  This is big and it’s not a manipulated market.  This is real.  Yes, supply is up, but demand is down, and demand is down big time.  You don’t have to look at that as an assumption, you can look at that as a fact.  Here’s the fact.  The fact is China is one of the biggest consumers of energy and commodities in the world.  You are seeing investment in China coming down to 2000 levels.  You are seeing production falling back to great recession levels in 2008 and 2009. . . . This is a global slowdown.  It’s in front of everybody’s eyes, and oil is telling the story.”
    -
    So, what’s in store for 2015? Let’s start with the global economy.   Celente says, “The economy is on a decline and it’s unquestionable.   They are boosting the equity markets with record low interest rates.  It’s a Ponzi scheme, and at some point, it has to explode.”   Celente goes on to preview a taste of the 2015 Trends Journal.  Celente says, “One of the trends for 2015 is ‘bankism,’ not capitalism.  Capitalism is dead. This isn’t capitalism.  Four words killed it, and they are ‘too big to fail.’  Quantitative easing hasn’t stopped.  They keep doing it, they just change the game.”
    -
    So, which do we get first: a global economic crash or a global world war?  Celente says, “I would say first would come the economic calamity, but you don’t know what will cause it.  For example, when 9/11 happened, they closed down Wall Street.  If there is a terrorist strike, either false flag or real, they will blame the economic conditions on these terrorists. . . . They will use it as an excuse.  So, you don’t know whether it’s heads or tails, but the coin will be flipped.”

Peter Schiff: Live by QE Die by QE. Don’t Be Fooled by the Strong Dollar!

  • Peter Schiff: Live by QE Die by QE. Don’t Be Fooled by the Strong Dollar! 
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Money manager Peter Schiff says don’t be fooled by the strong dollar or the so-called recovery. Schiff explains, “The biggest disconnect right now is between the real state of the U.S. economy and the fantasy land a lot of investors believe exists.   Everybody is of the opinion that the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy worked.  Because they did QE 1, 2 and 3 and kept interest rates at zero, the Federal Reserve saved the U.S. economy and they solved all the problems.  Because the problems have been solved, we no longer need the Fed . . . and everything is fine.  That is complete fantasy.  There is a bigger disconnect now than there was just before the 2008 financial crisis.  The truth of the matter is the Federal Reserve didn’t solve any of our problems.  They made them all worse.  We are more dependent on QE than ever before.  So, rather than raising interest rates next year like everybody expects, I think they are going to launch QE 4, which nobody expects. There is no end to this.  The Fed has to do this indefinitely because the minute they stop propping up this artificial phony economy, it will implode.  Everyone is confusing a bubble for a genuine recovery. It’s not.” 
    -
    How long can the economy be propped up and why hasn’t it fallen? Schiff says, “This stuff goes on longer than you expect.  People were asking the same questions about the housing bubble, which I was warning about for years.  They would say ‘well, nothing bad has happened, so what makes you think it’s going to?’   It’s just inevitable.  The fact that we’ve been able to postpone the day of reckoning for so long just makes the problems worse, which means the day of reckoning is worse.  The further back into the future we deal with the consequences, the bigger the problems are, the bigger the consequences.  Right now, part of the reason we are able to continue this charade is all of the other countries, particularly Europe and Japan, are in so much trouble that people assume we are the safe haven.  They think we are the only economy that is recovering.  We’re not, it’s like a mirage in the desert, and the closer you get to it, you eventually find out it’s an illusion.”

Paul Craig Roberts: A Global House Of Cards!

The Illuminists are lining up the pieces for a catastrophic global collapse!

The Illuminists are lining up the pieces for a catastrophic global collapse!

  • Paul Craig Roberts: A Global House Of Cards! 
    by http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/ 
    As most Americans, if not the financial media, are aware, Quantitative Easing (a euphemism for printing money) has failed to bring back the US economy.
    -
    So why has Japan adopted the policy? Since the heavy duty money printing began in 2013, the Japanese yen has fallen 35% against the US dollar, a big cost for a country dependent on energy imports. Moreover, the Japanese economy has shown no growth in response to the QE stimulus to justify the rising price of imports.
    -
    Despite the economy’s lack of response to the stimulus, last month the Bank of Japan announced a 60% increase in quantitative easing–from 50 to 80 trillion yen annually. Albert Edwards, a strategist at Societe Generale, predicts that the Japanese printing press will drive the yen down from 115 yen to the dollar to 145.
    -
    This is a prediction, but why risk the reality? What does Japan have to gain from currency depreciation? What is the thinking behind the policy?
    -
    An easy explanation is that Japan is being ordered to destroy its currency in order to protect the over-printed US dollar. As a vassal state, Japan suffers under US political and financial hegemony and is powerless to resist Washington’s pressure.
    -
    The official explanation is that, like the Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan professes to believe in the Phillips Curve, which associates economic growth with inflation. The supply-side economic policy implemented by the Reagan administration disproved the Phillips Curve belief that economic growth was inconsistent with a declining or a stable rate of inflation. However, establishment economists refuse to take note and continue with the dogmas with which they are comfortable.
    -
    In the US QE caused inflation in stock and bond prices as most of the liquidity provided went into financial markets instead of into consumers’ pockets. There is more consumer price inflation than the official inflation measures report, as the measures are designed to under-report inflation, thereby saving money on COLA adjustments, but the main effect of QE has been unrealistic stock and bond prices.
    -
    The Bank of Japan’s hopes are that raw material and energy import prices will rise as the exchange value of yen falls, and that these higher costs will be passed along in consumer prices, pushing up inflation and stimulating economic growth. Japan is betting its economy on a discredited theory.
    -
    The interesting question is why financial strategists expect the yen to collapse under QE, but did not expect the dollar to collapse under QE. Japan is the world’s third largest economy, and until about a decade ago was going gangbusters despite the yen rising in value. Why should QE affect the yen differently from the dollar?
    -
    Perhaps the answer lies in the very powerful alliance between the US government and the banking/financial sector and on the obligation that Washington imposes on its vassal states to support the dollar as world reserve currency. Japan lacks the capability to neutralize normal economic forces. Washington’s ability to rig markets has allowed Washington to keep its economic house of cards standing.

Jim Willie: FedRes Launches STEALTH QE4 Through TOKYO – Currency Reset & New Gold Standard Imminent!

Gold tsunami wave is coming!

Gold tsunami wave is coming!

  • Jim Willie: Fed Launches STEALTH QE4 Through TOKYO – Currency Reset & New Gold Standard Imminent! 
    by http://www.silverdoctors.com/ 
    Summary
    Simply put, QE can never be halted or even slowed.  The USFed is in a corner, with no policy options, FACING COLLAPSE, with no ability whatsoever to halt the systemic failure in progress.
    -
    The USDollar is fast losing its integrity, during a dangerous global rejection episode.   
    Therefore, QE must be exported, the easy candidate Japan. Call it Operation Tokyo Twist.
    -

    The King Dollar is in the final death throes, and the entire world knows it.
    -
    When the new Scheiss Dollar arrives, the wake up call comes. Its painful devaluations will bring price inflation, supply shortage, social disorder, and shock to the gutted nation.
    -

    The Tokyo Twist will be the song on the FOREX dance floor where all the gals (fiat currencies) are ugly, in a desperate contest to be the least ugly.
    -

    The new BRICS gold & silver backed currency is at an advance stage in the design rooms, soon to see actual implementation.
    -
    The Gold Standard is to be re-installed, euphemistically called the Currency Reset.
    History is on the verge of being made.

    Simply put, QE can never be halted or even slowed. The USFed is in a corner, with no policy options, facing collapse, with no ability whatsoever to halt the systemic failure in progress. It can only rely on hidden machinery and profound lies, against a background of constant economic propaganda. The central bank franchise system wrapped around the fiat paper currency regime has failed. They cannot stop it, not even with endless bond fraud and endless war, the new twin towers of the fascist state legacy. The entire financial structures have become fully dependent on easy money and debt financed by a printing press, buttressed by derivative machinery. The Uncle Sam bearing the USDollar emblem is like a pathetic heroin addict brandishing a modern howitzer. The USDollar is fast losing its integrity, during a dangerous global rejection episode. Therefore, QE must be exported, the easy candidate Japan. Call it Operation Tokyo Twist.
    -
    Heavy pressure, threats, and subterfuge are the American way. It is yet another sordid chapter in the Weimar Amerika story. QE to Infinity is the marquee billboard message, which will be perpetuated until the USGovt debt default and US financial collapse, forcing replacement of the USDollar. A Japanese syringe does not prevent the USD death, only delay it while deeper cancer spreads to the Japanese Economy and its financial structure. The United States is fast running out of nations to plunder. See Libya, Cyprus, Syria, Ukraine, the Philippines. Now Japan. Witness death of the US nation. The national carving ceremony will be very interesting to observe in future years, after the commercial colonization.

James Turk: Dollar Will Eventually Go Over the Cliff!

  • James Turk: Dollar Will Eventually Go Over the Cliff! 
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 
    Gold expert James Turk says the U.S. dollar is not going to stay strong. Turk contends, “Canada, one of the closest allies of America, just announced a Chinese trade arrangement to deal in Chinese yuan with Canadian dollars.  That bypasses the U.S. dollar.  So, the outlook for the U.S. dollar is not good, despite this temporary strength that we are seeing now. It’s not good and, to me, the writing is on the wall for the dollar.”
    -
    Turk goes on to say, “What the U.S. government will do, though, is everything in its power to protect the dollar’s position, and that means more capital controls.  There are already capital controls in place.  It’s almost impossible for a U.S. citizen to come over here in Europe and open a bank account.  They just don’t want to deal with U.S. citizens anymore.  Another type of capital control is that $16 trillion sitting outside the United States cannot come back and be spent in the United States.  If that were to happen, all those dollars overseas would fall to a steep discount to the domestic dollar because they would not have the same usefulness if they can’t be spent in the United States.”  But wouldn’t that be a default that would crush the U.S. dollar?  Turk explains, “It wouldn’t crush the domestic dollar.  It would crush the international dollar relative to the domestic dollar.  The domestic dollar will be inflated away in any case over the longer run.  The immediate impact would be on dollars outside the U.S. and, yes, that is a default.”

    -
    How long can this go on? Turk takes us back 100 years to the start of the Federal Reserve and says, “What the government is supposed to do is maintain stability and purchasing power of the dollar.  Today, the dollar purchases one penny of what a dollar in 1913 purchased.  That’s how bad the inflation has been.  That big picture thinking is important because we’ve had inflation and debasement of the dollar for 100 years.  People say it’s been 100 years.  Why couldn’t it go another 100 years?  Well, if you look at the Roman Empire, for example, it debased the denarius for 100 years until the denarius fell off the end of the table.  Just because that trend has been in place, it is not going to continue forever.  The key here is the amount of debt we have in the system and the amount of money the politicians are spending.  The reason why we have not had hyperinflation is the U.S. government has managed to keep its debts lower than they should be because the interest rates are zero. . . . We’re walking on a tight rope here, and it could go either way.  To me, we are looking at more currency debasement here . . .”

“The G-20 Financial Massacre”, Instability in Major Currency Markets?

Global financial storm is coming!

Global financial storm is coming!

  • “The G-20 Financial Massacre”, Instability in Major Currency Markets? 
    by Bill Holter, http://www.globalresearch.ca/ 
    Very “quietly” the world’s 20 largest economies will meet in Brisbane, Australia later this coming week. I use the word “quietly” because here in the U.S. almost no mention of the upcoming meeting has been made. I even searched for news on the event and almost could find none. Strange?
    -
    Well yes and no, quite strange because it surely is big news especially with all that has been going on but not strange because here in the U.S. we must keep a happy face on things which very well may not be the outcome this time around. I wasn’t sure how I was going to write this piece but I guess it’s just easiest to tell you what I think the result will be and then explain why.
    -
    In my opinion, once this meeting is over next Sunday all hell could break loose financially. I say this because much has already been put into place ahead of time and it is my expectation the U.S. and her dollar will at a minimum be taken off of “the top shelf” or at least be pushed back from the front. Let me put forth some of the many available dots and see if they can’t be connected.

    -
    First, if you remember last year’s summit, president Obama was not pictured in the center as the U.S. has always been at nearly all meetings such as these traditionally. If I recall, I believe I commented that he was positioned on one of the ends and I took it as “not a very good sign” at the time. This time around, president Obama will arrive as a “neutered” force after the Democrats lost total control of Congress. This fact is not lost on the world, they now know president Obama has no collateral nor clout left and will be the lamest duck president in history. One could argue this point but he has lost Congress while having the lowest public approval rating of any U.S. president.
    -
    We also know that China has been making business deals, setting up renminbi currency hubs, and either preparing for or actually doing trade in local currencies or their own all over the world. The Chinese have been forming these deals WITHOUT the use of dollars. Russia, who for the last 5-6 months have been the focus of “Western sanctions” have also been active in doing trade deals, particularly with China. If you recall, Russia achieved their “Holy Grail” gas deal earlier this year with China worth an estimated $400 billion.
    -
    Mr. Putin announced this past Friday a 2nd deal with China which will further intertwine the two nations in trade. Please also remember that Russia has recently made moves on Arctic energy reserves while U.S. “majors” such as Exxon/Mobil will not be able to participate in unless they break Mr. Obama’s sanction rules. Are the sanctions “good” for American business?
    -
    Before the upcoming G-20 summit there will also be two other meetings scheduled early this week, APEC (Asia Pacific Economic Coordination) and also a BRICS meeting. President Xi of China released a statement this past Sunday regarding the upcoming APEC meeting  by saying “China wants to live in harmony with all its neighbors”.
    -
    Please understand that this is not just a “flowery” comment, it is the way China thinks and does business. The world understands this and also understands how the U.S. has been doing business for years. The BRICS “pre G-20 meeting” has already announced goals including the launch of new BRICS bank, its funding and also the restructuring of IMF quotas.

    -
    I would like to speak of “the timing setup” before going any further. There will be these two pre meetings and then the G-20 meeting itself… and also another piece of breaking news which I find VERY curious! It has been announced out of London that UBS has agreed to a fine for …wait for it …wait for it…”manipulating the prices of gold and silver!!!
