Gerald Celente: Economic Martial Law & Precious Metals!

  • YouTube: Join host Leigh Greenberg as he speaks with Gerald Celente, publisher of the Trends Research Journal. They touch on a variety of subjects currently in the economic and social environment.

    He states that the merger of state and corporate powers is ongoing and that nothing will change until citizens are ready. One example is allowing Too-Big-To-Fail banks to grow another 20% since they were declared too big.

    Meanwhile, teams at Bank of America and Citibank have roughly doubled the amount of derivative contracts over the same time period, likely due to the newly tested sovereign backing. Celente goes on to say to that we do not have a representative government; unless you count that they only represent the bankers.

    He cites the axiom “when the student is ready a teacher will appear,” in his disappointment in U.S. citizens throughout the election process. He defines the new term “Technocrat” as a hard, clear thinking, no nonsense, banker, [which replaces an elected leader]. Celente uses these examples:

    Mario Monti — ex-Goldman Sachs, imposed as Italian ruler after Berlusconi was evicted
    Mario Draghi — ECB president, ex-Goldman Sachs, ex-Italian Central Bank President
    Lucas Papademos — ex-ECB Vice President, Worked for the Fed, Draghi’s college roommate

    When looking to gold, it is clear that Mr. Celente loves the truth embodied in Mike Maloney’s quote, which he has been saying since 2004, “If you can’t hold it you don’t own it.” Consider who your counterparty is. If you hold dollars as your savings, that savings has a counterparty. You have made an investment in the Federal Reserve Bank.

Japan’s Shocking Keynesian Slip: “We Are Worse Than Greece”!

  • Japan’s debt to GDP is well over 200%. So this is no surprise. In the coming global currency meltdown I do not expect the Japanese Yen to survive the hyperinflation onslaught! The Chinese will adopt competitive devaluation for their Yuan as the Japanese Yen tanks. When these 2 premier Asian currencies fall, do you think other Asian currencies will survive?

    Japan’s Shocking Keynesian Slip: “We Are Worse Than Greece”! 
    by Tyler Durden, 
    In a stunning turn of events, a Japanese Ministry of Finance official admits to Richard Koo’s worst nightmare “Japan is fiscally worse than Greece“. Bloomberg is reporting that, at a conference in Tokyo, Yasushi Kinoshita says Japan’s 2011 fiscal deficit was up to 10% of GDP and its debt-to-GDP has soared to over 230%. What is more concerning is the Kyle-Bass- / Hugh-Hendry-recognized concentration risk that Kinoshita admits to also – with a large amount of JGBs held domestically, the Japanese financial system is much more vulnerable to fiscal shocks (cough energy price cough) than Europe. Of course, the market is catatonic in its reaction to this – mesmerized by the possibility of buybacks and hypnotized at big-banks-passing-stress-tests – though we do note the small reverse stronger in USDJPY has reversed as this news broke and the USD pushes modestly higher.

Conned 2012: Joseph Kony Is A CIA Contractor!

AFRICOM - US Africa Command ! The invasion of Africa begins!

  • All wars are based on deception!” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War
  • The Illuminist plan is: global economic, financial and monetary collapse leading to Satanic World War 3! They are setting the world alight with wars without end. This is about world conquest for the coming Luciferian New World Order, Global Supra-National Central Bank, One World Currency –> ‘666’! (emphasis mine)

    Conned 2012: Joseph Kony Is A CIA Contractor
    by Saman Mohammadi, 
    The author of the blog aangirfan writes: “In Uganda, Joseph Kony is the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army, ‘which is a US and Mossad-backed guerilla force.’” He quotes Richard Cottrell, a former European MP, journalist, and author of the book, “Gladio: NATO’s Dagger At The Heart of Europe,” who wrote in an article in October 2011 called, “African ping pong: US plays both sides in Uganda”:

    “The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rampaging around Uganda is nothing more than a US and Mossad-backed guerilla force. Its task is to destabilize wide areas of Africa rich in minerals like Uganda, ex-French and Belgian Congo, and Sudan.

    Joseph Kony, the self-appointed leader of the LRA, ex-choir boy, brilliantly flexible break dancer, the new US terrorist poster boy, has been on the CIA’s books for years.”

    Based on this analysis, the CIA is probably also involved in the million-dollar propaganda campaign to draw American people’s attention towards Uganda, and Joseph Kony in particular, in order to secure public opinion in support of a U.S. and UN intervention in the country.

    Another excerpt from Richard Cottrell’s article:

    “What is going on in Central Africa is a fine old game of ping pong, the new scramble for Africa, in which western intelligence (American CIA, British MI6, Belgian intelligence, Israeli Mossad) are playing both sides of the table.

    The aim is to destabilize the entire region so effectively that most of it can be effectively controlled under the disguise of the usual humanitarian mission. The vast mineral reserves (copper, diamonds, gold, uranium, and oil, for starters) can then he handed on a plate to western exploiters.

    This is a direct continuation of the CIA/MI6/Belgian/Mossad promotion of the Katanga breakaway state back in the 1960′s. The western powers encouraged their local stooge Moise Tschombe to pull out of the freshly independent ex-Belgian Congo.

    The prime minister of the Congolese Republic, Patrice Lumumba, was murdered in 1961 with the complicity of US and Belgian Special Forces.”

    One of the CIA agents who was involved in the illegal assassination of the Congolese leader Patrice Lumumba was Frank Carlucci, who was the Secretary of Defense in the Reagan administration in the late 1980s. After leaving office, he became the chairman of the infamous Carlyle Group from 1992 to 2003, a company that is linked to the Bush and Bin Laden families, as well as other nasty people.

    These people are not only raping and murdering Africa, but they’re raping and murdering America and pretty much the whole planet. They don’t have human empathy, they are motivated by greed and want to take total control over the populations and resources of Earth.

    The satanic international banksters who control the CIA, MI6, Mossad, and other Western intelligence agencies are raping, killing, and looting in Afghanistan, Uganda, Iraq, Libya, America, etc. etc. etc.

    The Kony 2012 campaign is a well-funded propaganda facade to lure good-hearted Americans into backing another illegal U.S./UN intervention in a part of the world that has been raped by cynical conquerors since the dawn of time.

    This campaign is not about saving the children of Uganda from a heartless and brutal monster, but about stripping the resources of Uganda and giving them to the biggest heartless and brutal monsters on the planet, who own the CIA, MI6, Mossad, and the entire Western intelligence-security machine.

Lawmakers Push For US Invasion Of Africa Following Kony 2012 Fraud !

  • Daniel 7:23 (New King James Version)
    23 “Thus he said:
    ‘The fourth beast shall be
    A fourth kingdom on earth,
    Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
    And shall devour the whole earth,

    Trample it and break it in pieces.

  • I have repeatedly warned a few years back when AFRICOM and SOUTHCOM was setup by the Pentagon. The setting up of AFRICOM (ie. African Command) is for the conquest/invasion of Africa. Similarly, the setting up of SOUTHCOM (ie. Southern Command for South America) is for the conquest of South America. World War is brewing. The Anglo-American-Zionist west has one last card to play, in the face of economic, financial and monetary collapse, it is the war card !

    Lawmakers Push For US Invasion Of Africa Following Kony 2012 Fraud ! 
    by Paul Joseph Watson, 
    Two House lawmakers have introduced a resolution that seeks to deepen US Military involvement in Africa on the back of the Kony 2012 hoax, despite the fact that Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army have been virtually inactive for six years.

    “The resolution, introduced by Reps. Jim McGovern, D-Mass. and Ed Royce, R-Calif., calls for, among other things, expanding the number of regional forces in Africa to protect civilians and placing restrictions on individuals or governments found to be supporting Kony,” reports CBS News.

    As we have seen from US involvement in Libya and its attempts to destabilize Syria, the “humanitarian” justification is merely an excuse for expanding US hegemony into Africa where China has aggressively staked its claim.

    As we highlighted on Monday, the establishment-manufactured hype surrounding Kony 2012 is nothing more than a cynical ruse designed to manipulate naive do-gooders into legitimizing another US-backed “humanitarian” assault aimed at swallowing up Africa’s resources and land under Africom.

    While Joseph Kony and his army disappeared six years ago, Ugandans are being killed and evicted in their thousands by western entities right now – but nobody is making ‘viral’ films about the crisis and no celebrities are tweeting their displeasure.

    Invisible Children, the group behind Kony 2012 has created a groundswell of support for Uganda’s dictator Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, a man who has been in control of the country for 30 years and was returned to power in an election last year that was rife with fraud according to European Union observers.

    Museveni has been implicated in genocide after ordering his guards to shoot and kill civilians. He is also notorious for bumping off his political enemies.

    “The group is in favour of direct military intervention, and their money supports the Ugandan government’s army and various other military forces,” writes the Visible Children website, which has documented the hoax behind Kony 2012. “Here’s a photo of the founders of Invisible Children posing with weapons and personnel of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army. Both the Ugandan army and Sudan People’s Liberation Army are riddled with accusations of rape and looting, but Invisible Children defends them, arguing that the Ugandan army is “better equipped than that of any of the other affected countries”, although Kony is no longer active in Uganda and hasn’t been since 2006 by their own admission. These books each refer to the rape and sexual assault that are perennial issues with the UPDF, the military group Invisible Children is defending.”

    The Kony 2012 group itself has been exposed as a ruthless business empire that spends the majority of its income on its own expenses. The organization refuses to allow its financials to be properly audited and has a low two-star rating in accountability from Charity Navigator.

Professor Bisharat: Israel Stacks The Legal Deck! Its Court System Provides Little Justice For Palestinians!

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

  • Zionism is an Illuminist construct. At the heart of the Zionist flag is the Satanic ‘666’ Hexagram (from which we get the word “Hex” ie. to curse). Quite obviously, when a country flies a ‘666’ flag, it is of Satan! It does not get any clearer than this. The Christian sheeple are largely deceived useful idiots when it comes to Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit. Many will fall when this Satanic construct is destroyed.
  • They have been lied to for the past century that modern Ashkenazi Jews are the Jews of the Bible. They have been lied to that Zionist ‘666’ Israel is the Israel of the Bible. Nothing can be further from the truth. Zionist ‘666’ Israel, was not, is not and will never be the Israel of the Bible! It is pure Zionist fabrication. I am sickened tired of listening to, otherwise sound, Christian preachers repeat this LIE over and over again! It is time to tell the Christian sheeple the truth! And let them decide based on the evidence. (emphasis mine)

    Israel stacks the legal deck! Its court system provides little justice for Palestinians! 
    By George Bisharat, 
    Palestinian baker and activist Khader Adnan captured headlines recently for a 66-day hunger strike that led him to the brink of death. His ordeal began in the dead of night on Dec. 17, 2011, when Israeli soldiers broke down the door of his West Bank home. Adnan was arrested before his terrified wife and daughters, and was reportedly abused verbally and physically upon detention and later in interrogation.

    Adnan was never tried but instead faced administrative detention. Israeli prosecutors presented secret evidence to a military judge, who then ordered a four-month detention. Adnan is widely believed to be a leader in Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which Israel considers a terrorist organization. The government, however, lacked evidence that he was directly involved in terrorist attacks. Adnan’s protest against Israel’s unjust legal practices ended after an agreement between his lawyers and prosecutors to release him April 17 barring substantial new evidence.

    Adnan’s case was unique for the extreme sacrifice he offered and the public attention it earned. Yet Israeli military courts, established after Israel’s 1967 seizure of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, have imprisoned hundreds of thousands of Palestinians, including men, women and children, in similarly unfair proceedings, as documented by Lisa Hajjar in her book, “Courting Conflict: the Military Court System in the West Bank and Gaza.”

    To Palestinians, Israeli military courts are sites of repression, not houses of justice. Palestinian defendants facing trial in 2010 were found guilty in 99.74% cases, according to Israel Defense Forces documentation. Proceedings are conducted in Hebrew, which few Palestinians speak. Judges and prosecutors answer to higher military authority, denying military tribunals full independence. Courts may renew administrative detentions in six-month increments indefinitely. Some Palestinians have been so detained for years, never having enjoyed the right to confront and cross-examine witnesses nor even to know the evidence against them.

    Such evidence is frequently provided by Palestinian informers recruited by Israeli authorities, often through exploitation of the vulnerable. For example, Palestinians seeking advanced medical care that is unavailable in their own less-developed hospitals are sometimes pressured to collaborate in exchange for permits to enter Israel for treatment, according to Physicians for Human Rights-Israel. Credible allegations of torture and physical abuse of detainees gathered by such groups as the Public Committee Against Torture in Israel also continue to dog the military court system, despite a 1999 Israeli High Court of Justice decision barring four forms of torture previously used by interrogators. Evidence derived through informers is notoriously unreliable. Physically coerced statements are no more reliable: Those undergoing torture often say anything to alleviate their pain.

    The quip often credited to Georges Clemenceau — “Military justice is to justice as military music is to music” — springs to mind. Yet the injustices of Israel’s legal treatment of Palestinians in the West Bank cannot be so blithely dismissed. The crude procedures of military courts may be tolerable during brief military occupations. Israel’s occupation of the West Bank is anything but brief.

    Moreover, Palestinian litigants have fared scarcely better in Israeli civilian courts, including its vaunted High Court. There, suits to defend Palestinian rights routinely fail. Most recently, the High Court denied a petition that would have barred Israeli corporations from exploiting West Bank natural resources such as water, gravel and stone for Israeli use.

    In the Jordan Valley, 10,000 Israeli settlers were allocated 18 times the water per capita that native Palestinians were allocated in 2008, according to the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem. Restricted access to water and other natural resources has doubtless contributed to the dwindling Palestinian population in the Jordan Valley, from as many as 320,000 in 1967 to 56,000 in 2009. In leaving discriminatory allocations of resources undisturbed, the High Court functions as a tool of colonization.

    Israel is a colonial power that is still expanding in an era of human rights and mass-media scrutiny. Its methods for clearing land for settlement are necessarily different than those of earlier colonial powers, which sometimes employed genocide and ethnic cleansing. Israel made the most of its opportunities by denying return to hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who fled from their homes or were forcibly expelled by Israeli forces in the wars of 1948 and 1967. Thereafter, its inexorable takeover of Palestinian lands and other resources has assumed primarily bureaucratic form, with its courts providing a veneer of legality. But the end result — the displacement of a native population in favor of settlers — is the same.

    Israeli courts may provide justice to Jews living in Israel or the occupied Palestinian territories. But a legal system that is fair to one ethno-religious group while trampling the rights of others deserves to be recognized for what it is: a handmaiden to apartheid.

    Our own government, by running diplomatic interference for Israel and providing it billions in military aid, is complicit in the entrenchment of Israel’s variant of ethno-religious discrimination. Why we support practices that subvert our interests and defy our values is a question that every American should ponder.

Dean Henderson: CIA Islamists Destroy Somalia!

  • Muslim fundamentalism/terrorism are fomented, controlled, organized, financed, managed … by western Illuminist intelligence agencies: CIA, MI6, Mossad …etc. Do not be taken for a ride. (emphasis mine)

    Dean Henderson: CIA Islamists Destroy Somalia! 
    By Dean Henderson, The Intel Hub 
    The Sudan Tribune reported on Saturday that Ethiopian troops would hand over the recently captured Somalian towns of Beledweyne and Baidoa – which had been strongholds of al Qaeda-allied Al-Shabab Islamist militants – to the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM). Ethiopian had sent hundreds of troops to Somalia in December to help Mogadishu fight Al-Shabab.

    (Excerpted from Chapter 13: USS Persian Gulf: Big Oil & Their Bankers…) Western intelligence agencies used these Islamists to split Somalia into three different nations.

    On September 10, 1992 the US sent 2000 Marines and four warships led by the USS Tarawa to lurk off the Somali coast in the Gulf of Aden which separates Somalia from Saudi Arabia. Somalia had always been recognized as a highly strategic piece of real estate. Its President Siad Barre had played favorite to both the Soviets and the United States at different times, even allowing US Rapid Reaction fallback forces to base there.

    In 1982 General Alexander Haig, who briefly stepped in as self-imposed President when Ronald Reagan was shot by John Hinckley, emphasized the strategic significance of Somalia to the US saying the country “would be vital to our own Persian Gulf access”.

    The US had cut aid to Somalia in 1989 and reduced its three-swimming-pool embassy staff from 450 to 30. In January 1991 Barre was overthrown by his Defense Minister General Mohammed Farrah Aideed. The US Embassy was burned to the ground as Somalis expressed their outrage at decades of US support for the brutal Barre.

    General Aideed was a nationalist and US hawks began looking for a pretext to intervene. Columnist William Neikirk articulated the new interventionist attitude which prevailed in US foreign policy circles after the Gulf War when he wrote on December 6, 1992, “The world cops…should be walking the international beat every day, doing preventive work in the world community”.

    The UN Security Council held a summit in January 1992 during which it was decided that global peacekeeping operations, quite congruent with both Neikirk’s “world cops” concept and the Report from Iron Mountain, should be deployed around the world.

    Today 40,000 UN peacekeepers from sixty-one countries serve on four continents. President Clinton heartily embraced the idea saying, “We must do more than talk about a New World Order”.

    In Somalia the UN launched Operation Restore Hope with troops from Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Egypt and Nigeria participating. The Saudis too sent elite forces.

    The Pope called the intervention a “moral duty”. Many Third World countries, starved for cash, eagerly sent troops, who were well-paid to keep the peace. But other countries saw the mandate of the UN Security Council coming under the thumb of the United States and its European allies.

    Indonesia’s UN Ambassador Nugroho Wisnumurti stated, “If you look at the Council, in reality, you will see that only one or two are making decisions.”

    Under the guise of a humanitarian crisis, the Rome-based World Food Program, which Iraq had found was serving as CIA cover, chartered two C-130 transports from CIA-contract airline Southern Air Transport and began delivering food to Somalia.

    The CIA began arming Islamic fundamentalists bent on destroying Aideed’s leftist Somali National Alliance. As the fighting intensified the 2,000 US Marines, who had officially been deployed to protect UN peacekeeping troops, prepared to come ashore. Organization for African Unity President Salim Salim called the event “a new kind of colonialism”.

    General Aideed tried to form a government but was forced to fight off the Islamist extremists which the CIA unleashed. The day the US Marines came ashore to back the extremists President Bush stated that the war “may have to be extended into northern Somalia”.

    That very same day Chevron Texaco board member and former Secretary of State George Schultz called for air strikes on Yugoslavia.

    The CIA funded extremist warlord Ali Mahdi Mohammed, who seized the northern section of the Somali capital Mogadishu. They also backed the Somalia National Movement’s successful attempt to seize northwestern Somalia and declare an independent country called the Republic of Somaliland.

Nigel Farage: Yes, Germany & Switzerland Want Their Gold Back!

  • Most of the physical gold which central banks own are held in America (and London). The question on everyone’s mind is: “Is it still there?”. Have the bullion banksters used it to manipulate the gold price lower so as to maintain the USD hegemony? We will know soon.

    Farage – Yes, Germany & Switzerland Want Their Gold Back! 
    With Europe desperately trying to stabilize the Greek crisis, today Nigel Farage told King World News that despite European leaders pretending everything is okay, there is total denial and the ceiling is falling in. He also said the Germans and Swiss want their gold back. But first, here is what Farage had to say about the ongoing crisis in Greece: “It was very odd, I mean we had Mr. Van Rompuy, President of the European Council and Mr. Barroso, the Commission President, in Parliament this morning and it was remarkable. Two speeches from the two big bosses, both saying everything is absolutely wonderful. We have no difficulties at all and the recent Greek agreement has all gone off very smoothly. There is absolutely nothing to worry about.”
    Just to top it all, the thing that almost made me laugh was that yesterday the German Finance Minister said, ‘We must be preparing now, any day, for a third bailout.’ So this idea that the leaders of Europe give that everything is fine, everything is not fine. You can argue that the ECB, by printing money, has staved off the crisis for a few weeks. But the fundamentals haven’t changed one bit, the euro is in deep, deep crisis. …

Rick Rule: $150 to $170 Oil, Gold, Fraud & Dangerous Times!

  • We live in a period where fraud is legalized. Theft is sanctioned. But the reality is: this period is coming to an end. And it is going to end with a ginormous BANG! There is simply too much debt and fraud in the system.

    Rule – $150 to $170 Oil, Gold, Fraud & Dangerous Times! 
    With continued volatility in gold, silver and oil, today King World News interviewed Rick Rule, CEO of Sprott USA. Rule told KWN the world is out of $60 oil and maybe out of $70 oil. He also said the circumstances in Greece bring up the issue of moral hazard and the situation is extremely dangerous. Here is what Rule had to say: “I don’t know if it spins out of control, but it’s clearly fraud. Greece had an engineered default, which they chose not to call a default. This is just plain fraud and if you and I tried to do this, in the context of a private issue, we would go to jail. The fact that people who operate under a sovereign do it is very strange and very dangerous.”
    “This strengthens the power between sovereigns and allegedly private sector banks, which are increasingly instruments of central power. This is also very bad for savers who put money in banks and the banks turn around and stupidly lend the money to sovereigns. The sovereigns then turn around and bail out the banks, in effect nationalizing savings and risks.”

Japan To Purchase 65 Billion Yuan in China Government Debt Diversifying Away From Dollar!

If we're going down, we're going down in flames, baby! No half ass failure but total collapse!! Woohoo??!!

  • All avalanches start with a small trickle of snow. The movement out of the USD is speeding up!

    Japan to purchase 65 billion yuan in China government debt! 
    By Stanley White, 
    (Reuters) – Japan said on Tuesday it had received approval from China’s government to purchase 65 billion yuan ($10.3 billion) in Chinese government debt in a move that can help Japan diversify its reserves away from the dollar and strengthen economic ties between the two Asian countries.

    The timing of purchases hasn’t been set yet as Japan still needs to make some administrative preparations, but Japan is likely to start with a small amount and then increase purchases, Japan’s Finance Minister Jun Azumi said. Japan will also consider the impact on financial markets when it decides the timing of its purchases, Azumi said.

    China said on Monday it would continue its purchases of Japanese government debt but would reduce purchases when the yen is rising as China and Japan, holders of the largest and second-largest currency reserves, look to limit exposure to the dollar.

    “We feel this is an appropriate amount when considering our mutual goal of strengthening economic cooperation between Japan and China,” Azumi told reporters. Japan and China agreed at a summit in December to facilitate trade between the yen and the yuan as part of a broader push to strengthen economic cooperation.
