David Stockman Warns: “The Train Wreck Is Coming! All Hell Will Break Loose”!

Global economic and financial train wreck coming! Sep-Oct 2012?

  • “The Train Wreck Is Coming,” David Stockman Warns, “All Hell Will Break Loose”! 
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    Submitted by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog,
    Transcript of David Stockman Interview on King World News 

    Eric King:  “David, the man who is counsel to big money around the world, Michael Belkin, just spoke with KWN and issued a dire warning for the financial markets.  I just wondered how you see things at this point with the Dow recently tumbling and everything that is happening across the globe?  What should we expect?”
    -
    Stockman“Well, the watchword at this point is stay out of harm’s way.  We are headed into a perfect storm of policy failures.  This is not simply a failure by the Fed, which has inflated this massive bubble and painted itself into a corner with no clue how to get out, but we are also seeing an absolute failure of American world dominance….
    -
    Our foreign policy is collapsing everywhere and yet the Washington war party keeps wanting to do more of the same.  This confrontation with Putin is utterly out of hand and unnecessary.  Now we have a trade war going that is going to ricochet through an already fragile European economy.

    -
    We hear today that Obama is considering going back into Iraq.  What is he thinking?  If you layer that on top of an already fragile financial bubble that is waiting to burst, I think we are in a zone of extreme danger.  It’s hard to predict whether this will be the big, destructive bear market that inevitably has to come, or simply just another dip that encourages the robots and the trained seals on Wall Street to buy for another move higher.  But one of these times we are going to have a big failure and I don’t think it’s too far down the road.
    -
    If you look at the stock market it has gone nearly straight up for the last 64 months.  If you look at the chart of the S&P 500 you can see that year after year the dips get shallower and more infrequent and that is not a healthy chart.  That is a sign of a market that is not discounting the actual real world future, but simply trading the word clouds and the liquidity that is being injected by not only our central bank, but central banks around the world.
    -
    The difficulty is that I don’t believe this central bank ‘act’ can be kept up.  We have had such tremendous expansions of balance sheets that even the central bankers are now beginning to second guess themselves, become divided among themselves, and begin to worry about how they get out of the corner they have painted themselves into.
    -
    So those are the factors that will ultimately cause a major collapse.  It’s just a question of when the black swan comes flying in, or when the confidence in this whole central banking illusion finally breaks down in the markets.”

    The stock market has hit all time new highs, meanwhile institutional investors are dumping stocks while the every day person is investing. During the 2008 crash construction jobs were lost and never regained. Loan rates will be increasing which will effect 800,000 homeowners. 70% of the Border Patrol guards have been reassigned and are not guarding the borders. Israel continues to bomb Gaza. They are warning the people to leave their homes which indicates the agenda is destroying Gaza so the people cannot live there. There is oil and gas off the coast of Gaza and with the people living there Israel has no access to it. Israel is now using propaganda to include Iran in funding Hamas. Eric Holder has now indicated Sryia, Yemin with the Islamic State in creating the stealth bombs. Be prepared for a false flag.

Ellen Brown: Central Banks On A Stock Buying Frenzy!

  • Ellen Brown – Central Banks On A Stock Buying Frenzy! 
    by Financial Survival Network 
    Ellen Brown wrote recently that central banks have the power to create national currencies with accounting entries, and they are traditionally very secretive. We are not allowed to peer into their books. It took a major lawsuit by Reuters and a congressional investigation to get the Fed to reveal the $16-plus trillion in loans it made to bail out giant banks and corporations after 2008. What is to stop a foreign bank from simply printing its own currency and trading it on the currency market for dollars, to be invested in the US stock market or US real estate market? What is to stop central banks from printing up money competitively, in a mad rush to own the world’s largest companies? Evidently not much. China’s central bank has been buying up stock both here and Europe with reckless abandon, wonder what their plan is.

Did the “Central Banks’ Central Bank” Just Call for a Stock-Market Collapse?

Carroll_Quigley_Tragedy_n_Hope2

  • The BIS, FedRes, ECB, IMF, World Bank, BOE … and practically all central banks are privately owned Illuminist corporations. Their owners are the Satanic bloodlines, the Old Black Nobility of Europe headed by the British Monarchy. Their objectives are: Luciferian New World Order, Global Supra-National Central Bank, One World Currency backed by gold –> ‘666’!
    -
  • This coming collapse is more than a stock market collapse. It is a global economic, financial and currency collapse. The drums of their Satanic WW3 Is beating louder and louder.
    -
  • Did the “central banks’ central bank” just call for a stock-market collapse? 
    by on June 30, 2014, http://notquant.com/ 
    Don’t look now, but the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), which is often referred to as the “central banks’ central bank”, just advised the world’s central banks to stage a market collapse now rather than later.
    -
    For anyone claiming that the many global critics of central banks are a “bunch of doomers”, that argument has now been officially buried, as the world’s premier forum of central bankers just sounded the alarm themselves:
    -
    The risk of normalising too late and too gradually should not be underestimated… The trade-off is now between the risk of bringing forward the downward leg of the cycle and that of suffering a bigger bust later on .”
    -
    So what was that about “bringing forward the downward leg of the cycle”?   For anyone who thinks collapses aren’t planned, let’s call that “Exhibit A”.  So much for free markets.  Let’s be clear:  The same forum of the world’s central bankers which recommended this monster bubble in the first place  and enriched the world’s top-1% to historic levels, is now discussing “bringing forward the downward leg of the cycle“.  Is there anything that isn’t planned?
    -
    Oh well, so much for our roaring equity markets. Those are apparently about to be sacrificed in a planned collapse — er, sorry, in a “bringing forward of the downward leg of the cycle“.   Not that our soaring markets were indicative of any underlying economic health anyway.   The BIS was kind enough to point out to it’s member central-banks that, markets are not only officially broken but the disconnect between markets and economic reality is your fault guys.
    -
    “Financial markets have been exuberant over the past year, at least in advanced economies, dancing mainly to the tune of central bank decisions. … Growth has disappointed even as financial markets have roared:  The transmission chain seems to be badly impaired.   …  Over time, policies lose their effectiveness and may end up fostering the very conditions they seek to prevent”.
    -
    The BIS is worried about the bubble it recommended in the first place:
    Well it’s all very nice that the BIS has warned that the world’s central banks have now officially broken markets and created a new bubble.    But there seems to be some serious double-speak involved in the language of “recovery” and “new bubble creation”.  Literally everyone in central-banking-land agreed that the bubble needed to be reflated after the housing-bust.  But now that it’s been reflated there’s a rather ironic concern that…uh oh… we reflated it.

Central Bank Gamblers Versus Gold Stocks!

  • Central Bank Gamblers Versus Gold Stocks! 
    by Stewart Thomson, http://www.321gold.com/ 
    Jun 17, 2014

    1. Today is a very important day at City Hall in London, England. Central bank research group OMFIF is presenting a blockbuster report on public sector spending. I think that everyone in the global gold community should take note of it.
      -
    2. OMFIF argues, quite persuasively, that governments, central banks, and sovereign funds are now holding stock market investments worth about $29 trillion.
      -
    3. The drop in bond yields is likely behind the enormous public sector surge into equity markets.
      -
    4. To view the OMFIF press release, please click here now.
      -
    5. While citizens of the world are struggling to make ends meet, governments and banks appear to be engaged in a massive “price chase”, in global stock markets.
      -
    6. Rather than invest in failing infrastructure, central banks and governments are acting like hedge funds, betting on the stock market and OTC derivatives, using fiat credits that are borrowed or printed.
      -
    7. The bottom line: While global citizens are told to “grin and bear” austerity, their leaders are having a “good ‘ole time” spending trillions of dollars, at the stock market casino.
      -
    8. Elderly citizens have invested a lot of money in corporate bond funds, in an attempt to get a decent payout on their savings. That’s a mistake. I’ve argued that an investor should never invest because of a personal or corporate “need”. Investment should be based on a macro view of what an asset is, not what an investor needs from it.

What Does The Coming Global Reset Mean To You? (Part 2)

Christine Lagarde, Chairman IMF at ‘Davos World Economic Forum’.

Christine Lagarde, Chairman IMF at ‘Davos World Economic Forum’.

  • What Does The Coming Global Reset Mean To You? (Part 2) 
    by Bill Holter, http://blog.milesfranklin.com/ 
    I assume that a re set of currencies and financial markets are close at hand because the imbalances have gone too far mathematically.  I also have come to the conclusion that the re set will be “imposed” on the U.S. by China because they know the math involved and do not approve of our business practices.  The re set “concept” has gained much yardage over the last year as the imbalances have widened and the thought process has spread.  Personally, I see it as mathematically inevitable.  Some feel that any re set would be triggered by the U.S. others feel that Europe would do it, my personal opinion is that the Chinese have the greatest ability and stand to gain more from it than anyone else.  Even without a “push” or a planned event, I believe that the markets would sooner or later be cued by Mother Nature and force this event, manipulators be damned.
    -
    That said, what would a “re set” mean to you?  Well, it depends on “who” you are and how or where you have your assets positioned.  First off, the value of your “dollars” will fall against everything.  It will take more dollars to buy food, clothing, housing, transportation etc.  Depending on how severe the devaluation is, the resultant inflation will be the mirror of this.  If you are on a fixed income like a pension or Social Security or what have you, the amount of goods and services that you will be able to afford will be less.  If you have bank balances, these will also have a lowered purchasing power (not to mention probably “bailed in” and lowered balances).  Bonds however will receive a double whammy to financial purgatory.  Their “face amount” will have a lesser buying power with a devalued currency but on top of that, I believe that interest rates will be much higher which will discount the market value.  The above are pretty simple to figure out; it is the rest of the financial world which is a little more difficult to call.
    -
    In the difficult to call category are stocks, real estate and commodities.  As I mentioned the other day, stocks generally sell off initially and then recover but not enough to regain the loss of buying power in the currency.  Real estate in my opinion will be sold off; I say this because of the massive debt that is attached to it on a worldwide basis.  Couple the debt with higher interest rates and the fact that theoretically the Fed will be precluded from flooding the liquidity gates… and I think you will see very weak real estate prices with the exits clogged by sellers seeking liquidity.  Two other aspects to real estate that will hinder it are “taxes” and thus the ability of governments to tax them out from under the owners… and the lack of liquidity.  Liquidity is “king” during monetary crack ups and real estate “just isn’t it.”

Insider Reveals Framework Of the Next World War: “This is How You Have to Think About Escalation and End Games”!

  • Intelligence Insider Reveals Framework Of the Next World War: “This is How You Have to Think About Escalation and End Games”! 
    by Mac Slavo, SHTFplan.com 
    There is no doubt that the U.S. military has the ability to engage any foreign enemy and leave it dismantled or utterly destroyed. This is one of the key reasons for why Russia and China have thus far remained on the sidelines as it relates to direct military conflict.
    -
    But according to one intelligence insider, though our country is unmatched on the traditional battlefield, a strike on the United States could come in the form of coordinated asymmetric attacks that would significantly level the playing field and lay waste to life as we know it in modern-day America.
    -
    Jim Rickards, author of The Death of Money, knows a thing or two about how foreign governments are approaching the question of America’s global hegemony. He has worked closely with U.S. intelligence agencies for decades and in 2007 was the operational director of the country’s first ever financial war games. According to Rickards, don’t expect our foreign enemies to be firing missiles at major cities any time soon. If an attack is to come to our shores it won’t come in the form of bombs and bullets. At least not at first.
    -
    In this absolutely must-watch interview with Future Money Trends, Jim Rickards delves into scenarios that will change the very face of our world over the next decade. He explains the complexities involving the various geo-strategies currently at play and provides a realistic view of the escalations we can expect to occur going forward as East and West face off on the globally inter-connected battlefield of the early 21st century.
    -
    There’s not a country in the world that can stand up to the United States in what’s called kinetic military warfare. So kinetic just means things that shoot or explode. So missiles, bombs, submarines, airplanes, etc., nobody can go toe to toe with the United States. We can sink any navy, ground any force, disrupt any control communications system anywhere in the world.
    -
    So nobody wants to confront the U.S. in that space. But when you move over to what we call asymmetric warfare, or unrestricted warfare, what is that? That includes things like cyber warfare, financial warfare, weapons of mass destruction, chemical, biological, radiological weapons, those types of things. It’s a much more level playing field.
    -
    Now the U.S is very good at it, don’t get me wrong, but so are others. And there it’s much more evenly matched.
    -
    I say the Russians could use their hackers to shut down the New York Stock Exchange, which they could. And one rebuttal I’ve heard as well, is that U.S hackers could shut down the Moscow Stock Exchange. And my answer is of course they could, but who wins? In other words, we have a lot more to lose than they do. They shut down our stock exchange, we shut down their stock exchange, they win because we have a much more important exchange there. Who cares about the Moscow Stock Exchange?
    -
    So this is how you have to think about escalation and end games, and what technically what we would call the game theoretic context within which this is playing out. I’m not sure the U.S is very good at that. I mean the U.S is very good at these kinds of financial warfare. I’m not sure they’re very good at the kind of geo-strategic and theoretic thinking that I’m describing to your listeners.
    -
    Right now the United States is actively conducting financial warfare against Russia. As Jim notes in the above interview, we have begun seizing the assets of Russian officials and are working to implement sanctions on the global level. Vladimir Putin may not be planning to launch nuclear strikes at U.S. cities as a result, but what if the Obama administration crosses a line that shouldn’t be crossed? Could Putin launch a counter attack in the cyber world? Perhaps, as noted by Rickards, he would give the order to take down our stock exchanges, a move that would wreak havoc across the entire world.

Doug Casey: Catastrophic Meltdown Coming to America!

  • Catastrophic Meltdown Coming to America-Doug Casey! 
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 
    I
    nvestor/author Doug Casey says most Americans are ill-prepared for what is coming.  Casey explains, “This huge recession that started in 2007, and the bottom was 2009 and 2010, has cyclically recovered.  So, people think it’s going to be happy days again, but it’s not.  The way the government engineered this recovery is by creating trillions in currency units, and as we speak, they are creating $55 billion a month more by buying government bonds and mortgage securities.  All of this paper money which is currently sitting in banks, at some point, is going to wash over the U.S.  You’ll see very high levels of inflation.  It’s going to be quite catastrophic.”   Casey, who has a new video called “Meltdown America,” contends, “The standard of living for the average American has been dropping for years now.   The average American can’t lay his hands on $2,000.  A recent poll came out and said 40% of Americans, if they had to get $2,000 cash in 30 days, couldn’t do it.  So, things are pretty strapped, and when the economy goes off the deep end again, and I think it could happen this year quite frankly, there’s going to be a lot of unemployed people, a lot of people without any money and a lot of people with a lot of debt.  There is nothing the government can do at this point except print more money.  The problem is all the money they are printing is coming out of a financial fire hose at the Federal Reserve.  The rich guys are where the fire hose is, and the little people are just getting some dribs and drabs.  This is why the country is becoming polarized, where the rich are becoming richer and the poor are becoming poorer.  It’s exactly because of these government actions that are incredibly stupid. . . It’s just bailing out the rich.  The prognosis is extremely grim.  There’s no way out.”
    -
    What does Casey mean when he says, “There’s no way out”?  Casey explains, “It means, in the real world, there is cause and effect.  Actions have consequences . . . .  What could happen?  You could have lots of bank failures.  You could have a stock market crash.  All this money that the government has created has bulled up the stock market to new highs.  So, the next step is likely to be down.  A lot of people have assets in the stock market, and if they don’t, their pension funds are in the stock market.  Most of the cities in this country have and most of the states in this country have gigantic pension liabilities that are underfunded, underfunded even though the stock market is at all-time highs and the bond market is in a super bubble.  Now, when interest rates inevitably go up from these artificially suppressed levels where they are now, the bond market is going to collapse, the stock market is going to collapse, and with it, the real estate market is going to collapse.  These pension funds are going to be wiped out.  Then what’s going to happen?  This is a very bad situation.  The U.S. is digging itself in deeper and deeper.”

Nomi Prins: Financial Crash-Collapse Coming, It Should Have Happened Already!

  • Nomi Prins-Financial Crash-Collapse Coming, It Should Have Happened Already! 
    Published on Apr 15, 2014
    http://usawatchdog.com/nomi-prins-aut… On another financial collapse, best-selling author Prins predicts, “We absolutely can. There is much more reason that we will than that we won’t. The stability of the system is really fake. A lot of speculation has occurred with cheap money, and then it is bailout, and then nothing changes, and then something worse happens. That is the current pattern and the pattern of the last three decades.”

    -
    Prins, who is a former top Goldman Sachs banker, exclaims, “It is very easy to see how the system could unravel because it isn’t stable. We are definitely in big trouble. There is no way we are not headed for a crisis. . . . It should have happened already, but the level of support is epic and reckless from the political and financial elite.”

Insiders Tell All: Both the Stock Market and the SEC Are Rigged !

fascism_is_the_american_dream

  • Insiders Tell All: Both the Stock Market and the SEC Are Rigged
    by Pam Martens, http://wallstreetonparade.com/ 
    Since bestselling author Michael Lewis appeared on 60 Minutes on March 30 to promote his new book, “Flash Boys,” and explained how the U.S. stock market is rigged; and Brad Katsuyama, the head of IEX, an electronic trading platform who plays a central role in the Lewis book, did the same on CNBC a few days later, the debate has gone viral.
    -
    But Lewis and Katsuyama were not the first to blow the whistle on rigged U.S. stock markets. Sal Arnuk and Joseph Saluzzi, Wall Street insiders and co-founders of Themis Trading LLC literally wrote the book on “Broken Markets” in 2012 and have been exposing details of the rigging  on their blog ever since.
    -
    Wall Street Journal reporter, Scott Patterson, mapped out the exotic and corrupt order types permitted by the stock exchanges to fleece the little guy in his 2012 book, “Dark Pools,” which follows the trading career of Haim Bodek, who has set up his own web site to blow the whistle on just how badly the stock market is rigged.
    -
    Following all the media hoopla, the FBI has recently announced that it has opened an investigation into the allegations. But under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the FBI is not in charge of rigged stock exchanges — the Securities and Exchange Commission is. But according to insiders, the SEC has stood down in much the same fashion that it ignored warnings about Bernard Madoff from whistleblower Harry Markopolos for years. The explanation for the SEC’s inaction, many traders feel, is that the SEC itself is rigged against Main Street in favor of big Wall Street firms. That view has found support among the SEC’s own insiders.
    -
    Since 2006, four attorneys at the Securities and Exchange Commission have put their reputations and family interests on the line by blowing the whistle on corrupt cronyism that is now so ingrained at the Nation’s regulator of stock exchanges and securities markets that it’s become part of the SEC’s business model.
