Central Banks Have Been Calling for a Financial System Reset Since 2013. They’ve Been Using This Time to Accumulate Gold

    Insiders have been busy leading up to February. In fact, Goldman Sachs reports that, during the recent stock rout, they had their busiest week ever as buybacks surged 4.5 times last years average corporate buying. Snap has made Even Spiegel a very wealthy man and apparently, a very lucky one too. On February 3rd some huge buyer made Snap stock gap up from $13ish to $21ish. Perhaps they know something we don’t. Oh Snap! It’s All About Confidence And for the Fed’s next magic trick…Interbank Lending is discontinued. Banks lending to each other provided liquidity during past crisis. But that support dried up during the 2008 crisis leaving central banks, as the lender of last resort.

    And while we’re told everything is fine, this graph shows the loss of confidence banks have in each other’s solvency (ability to repay a loan). Real Money Gold Central banks have been calling for a financial system reset since, at least, 2013. They know the old system has been on life support since 2008. They’ve been using this time to accumulate gold. Wouldn’t it make sense to follow their lead?

Charles Hugh Smith: All Currencies Will See Catastrophic Devaluation Against Hard Asset. Financial Markets Definitely Destabilizing

  • Charles Hugh Smith: All Currencies Will See Catastrophic Devaluation Against Hard Asset. Financial Markets Definitely Destabilizing
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Financial writer and book author Charles Hugh Smith has been watching the extreme movements in financial markets closely. Is he nervous?  Smith says, “Oh yeah, it’s definitely destabilizing.  In other words, it’s becoming not just more volatile, the whole underlying structure of our economy is destabilizing.  What I mean by that is it’s becoming more brittle or fragile.  That is fundamentally why we are seeing these wild swings.  People are swinging between . . . keeping the money machine like it is for another nine years, and the other side of the coin says wait a minute, we have already had a weak expansion for nine years.  It’s almost the longest expansion in U.S. history.  A normal business cycle doesn’t run in one direction forever. . . .If you don’t allow your economy to have a business cycle recession, then you are simply making it more fragile by encouraging really marginal and risky investments, and that’s where we are now.”


    One very big problem is a dramatic loss in buying power of the U.S. dollar, but it’s not just the dollar. According to Smith, “All these currencies, there is nothing backing the currencies except the government’s force.  That’s the yen, the euro, the dollar and the Chinese yuan.  They are all going to have a catastrophic drop against real assets because they are all based on too much leverage, too much debt, too much money being pumped into the financial system that ends up in unproductive speculation.  You can’t grow your debt at six times the rate of your economy.  In other words, if you are creating $6, $8 or $10 of debt to eke out $1 of low productivity growth, you are dooming your currency, and all currencies are doing the same thing.  All the currencies are going to take a big drop at some point . . . relative to real stuff.  Real stuff is commodities we need:  water, grains, food, oil, natural gas and, of course, precious metals.  Everybody knows they have been money for 5,000 years, and I personally feel there is a role for crypto currencies.”

The Agenda Is Set, The Dollar Will Begin To Lose It’s World Dominance

  • X22Report Published on Feb 16, 2018
    Global trade wars have begun. Tariffs are being considered, Trump will make the decision by April 11. The last time the American public was so confident the stock market crashed. This is when the central bankers make their move, when everyone feels good and the illusion takes hold they bring the whole thing down. China is ready and prepared to go live with their petro yuan futures. This is to challenge the petro dollar. Is this the end of the petro dollar, yes but it has nothing to do with the petro yuan. Be prepared the central bankers are getting ready to bring down the economy.

Central Banks Are Preparing To Take Control Of The Blockchain

  • X22Report Published on Feb 15, 2018
    The Canadian housing crisis is imploding, sales have dropped on existing homes. Inflation is starting to pick up, once inflation gets going the central bank will not be able to control it. The central banks are beginning to move into the blockchain arena, they are now working with Saudi Arabia to establish ripple as their cryptocurrency. Control is the game, control the currency at any cost as the system comes down.

True US Goal in Syria is Control Over Resources, Not Fighting ISIS – Russian MoD

The Syrian war is over competing gas pipelines to Europe by the West and Russian backed Iran-Iraq. It is an energy war.

  • True US Goal in Syria is Control Over Resources, Not Fighting ISIS – Russian MoD
    by https://www.rt.com/
    The US-led coalition’s attack on pro-government forces in Syria has again proven that Washington’s true goal is to capture “economic assets” instead of fighting terrorism, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

    The MoD was referring to an incident which took place on Tuesday in Deir Ez-Zor province, as a Syrian militia unit was moving against a “sleeper cell” of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS). The operation was prompted by a surge in shelling of the positions of Syrian government forces in the area over the past few days, attributed to the covert activities of IS terrorists, the ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

    A unit of the pro-government militia was conducting a reconnaissance search mission on February 7 near the former oil processing plant of Al-Isba. While there, “the militiamen came under a surprise mortar and MRLS shelling, and were attacked by helicopters of the US-led ‘international coalition.’”

    As a result, 25 members of the pro-government unit were injured. Initial media reports, citing unnamed US officials, suggested that some 100 Syrian soldiers had died in the assault by the coalition forces.

    The US Central Command earlier called the attack on Syrian militiamen “self-defense,” claiming that the troops allegedly launched an “unprovoked attack against well-established Syrian Democratic Forces [SDF] headquarters.”

    The US version of events, however, raises “lots of questions,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday.

The Criminal Banks KNOW Something Is Very Wrong — Lynette Zang

  • SGTreport Published on Feb 13, 2018
    Lynette Zang from ITM Trading joins me to discuss the economy, precious metals and the storm that’s brewing. The criminal banks have stopped lending to each other because they know something is very wrong. Will the masses realize it – or be told about it – before it’s too late? Probably not. But you will.

John Williams: US Deficit Is Beyond Control. Fed Triggered Stock Sell-Off – Dollar Next

  • John Williams: US Deficit Is Beyond Control. Fed Triggered Stock Sell-Off – Dollar Next
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 
    In his latest report, economist John Williams asks the question, “Did the Fed trigger the stock sell-off?” Williams answer, “It sure looks that way.  With all the heave selling, the bond yields were rising and investors didn’t like that.  Risings bond yields means someone is selling bonds.  The Fed was not selling bonds, they were not rolling over the bonds they normally wood. . . . There was a big drop in the amount of bonds the Fed was holding in the last week by about $10 billion.  That was the biggest weekly decline since August of 2012. . . . It was enough to put some upside pressure on the interest rates . . . and that was a trigger (for the stock market sell-off).  Normally, you don’t crash from an all-time high, not that it crashed, but you did have pretty heavy selling.  You didn’t see much movement in the dollar.  You didn’t see much movement in gold, and when this market really goes, I think you are going to see the dollar selling off very rapidly and gold being a flight to safe haven.”


    Williams goes on to say, “The Fed caused this latest round of selling because they are reducing their balance sheet. I would say the Fed is in a real awkward position here because the economy is not doing what they are advertising, at least what you are seeing in the headline data.  I think you are going to see a rapid slowdown in the next couple of months.  Then you are going to see the markets say what’s the Fed doing here?  The Fed will have to go back to quantitative easing (QE or money printing).  When you see that again, that should be a heavy sell signal for the dollar.  It will be a flight from the dollar that will spike oil prices and give us an inflation problem.  This will tend to spike gold prices.  As foreign investors flee from the dollar, they will also be fleeing from the stock market and the U.S. bond market.  You will see stock selling and bond selling and then higher yields, and the Fed will be coming in and start buying the bonds again.  I think that is where we are heading.”

Lynette Zang: Wall Street, Manipulation and Lies…Oh My

    Is this the beginning of the visible fiat market collapse the central bankers have managed to postpone since 2008? Perhaps, time will tell. But frankly, at the least, this should be a wake-up call. People want to ride the markets and believe they can get out just before a crash. Did you know in 2008? Did you know that January 28th the current market high? Did you sell your stocks on January 27th? Only if you were lucky. Personally, I’d rather be two weeks too early, than one second too late. If you have not done so already, take advantage of this gift and reposition your wealth into REAL assets that are the only undervalued monetary instruments on the planet…physical gold and silver.
