  • Published on Dec 20, 2016
    CIA hacking doesn’t make any sense , Ben Swann lays out the problems. China returns the underwater drone to the US. Syrian army enter Aleppo for the first time after 4 years. Syria says they have captured US and NATO soldiers working along side the terrorists. During the Aleppo battle the corporate media with the help of the US Government produced fake news on the subject. The truck driver was shot before the truck slammed into the market place. The individual that was caught was let go and the manhunt begins. Merkel will use this situation to shutdown social media and create more laws that takes the rights of the people away.

Deutsche Bank Failure Will DESTROY the ENTIRE European Banking System, Top Analyst Says


  • Deutsche Bank Failure Will DESTROY the ENTIRE European Banking System, Top Analyst Says 
    by JON ROGERS,
    A SENIOR financial analyst has claimed that if Deutsche Bank is allowed to fail it will collapse the entire European banking system.

    Ewen Cameron Watt, a senior director at investment managers Blackrock Investment Institute, told CNBC: “If Deutsche Bank doesn’t make it, forget European banks as a whole.” “I think if you look at Deutsche Bank, what John Cryan (Chief Executive, Deutsche Bank) is doing is trying to lead a very long march back to a sustainable model. “They have got through a lot of harder stuff but there are still many mountains ahead.”

    The bleak warning comes after Deutsche Bank, the country’s largest lender, is facing a huge fine of $14billion (£11billion) from the US Department of Justice for the mis-selling of residential mortgage-backed securities in the run-up to the 2008 financial crisis.

    Mr Watt added: ”If the bank can remain solvent and the bail-in is not too severe then it is a bit like someone having a heart attack and the defibrillator is put on them and they recover. “They are not well but the proportion between the moment when things are applied to them and their recovery is a big change for the individual.”

Eurozone COLLAPSE Fears as Italy Demands £17BILLION Bailout to Prop Up Its ‘Doomed’ Bank


  • Eurozone COLLAPSE Fears as Italy Demands £17BILLION Bailout to Prop Up Its ‘Doomed’ Bank 
    ITALY is preparing to pump billions of pounds into its crisis-hit banks amid rising fears of a financial crisis that could destroy the eurozone.

    Rome asked for parliamentary approval to borrow €20billion (£16.8bn) to prop up troubled lenders, including Monte dei Paschi di Siena (MPS). Italy’s oldest bank is running out of time to find a solution to its €40bn (£33bn) book of bad loans. If MPS doesn’t find more cash by the end of the year, it will be wound down by the European Central Bank (ECB), which could spark a crisis of confidence in the country’s financial sector.

    The lender is now pushing ahead with a desperate attempt to raise around £4.2billion (€5bn) of private cash, as part of a plan to stay afloat and protect its retail investors. But the plan is expected to fail, meaning Rome will have to step in.

    Italy’s Economy minister said the money it was seeking could be used to keep the banking system afloat. He said: “These resources could also be used as part of a programme to boost capital at banks.” 

    Under European Union rules, any bailout by the Government must be accompanied by losses for Italian savers and pensioners with bonds in the bank. The move is set to be politically explosive the week-old administration of Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.

Trump Can’t Stop It: “The People Who Have Been Orchestrating The Collapse Have Not Halted Their Agendas”


  • Trump Can’t Stop It: “The People Who Have Been Orchestrating The Collapse Have Not Halted Their Agendas”  
    by Jeremiah Johnson, 
    There are some very somber, pragmatic articles circulating as of late that present a true snapshot of the difficulties the U.S. faces after eight years of Obama.  One of these articles is a well-written, thought-provoking piece by Susan Duclos of All News Pipeline, entitled We are Facing the Most Important Battle of All at the Most Dangerous Moment in History.  The piece shows what we’re up against and cautions all of us not to rely on the “magic fix” of Trump’s victory to side rail our preparations and vigilance.  Here is an excerpt from that excellent article:

    We at ANP are noting a lot of optimism from investors with stocks soaring,  to economic confidence reaching new highs, to small business owners, to household spending and even prepping has hit a “multi-year low,” all the articles I am reading are crediting the election of Donald Trump as reason for all this optimism, but as much as I hate to rain on everyone’s parade… now is the most dangerous time in history, not a time to assume just because one man was elected, all the wrongs will be made right, the failing economy will automatically just magically fix itself.”

    Susan deserves special thanks, as well as Stefan Stanford; their coverage of developments has been spot-on and unwavering in their attempts to present objective and factual reporting, while warning readers akin to modern Paul Reveres that the battle is not over by any means.  In reality, it is not even close to being over.  I recommend reading the article’s section toward the beginning under “THE ECONOMY IS COLLAPSING” paragraph introduction for statistics on where we stand economically at this moment in time.

    There was a piece released by Michael Snyder of the Economic Collapse Blog on December 8th entitled It is Like a Nuclear Bomb Went Off in the Prepping Community, another timely piece that warns of the complacency settling in now that most conservatives believe that Trump will be the vaccine for the country’s illnesses.  Here is an excerpt from that article:

Chinese Interbank Lending Freezes, Forcing Massive Intervention By China’s Central Bank


  • Chinese Interbank Lending Freezes, Forcing Massive Intervention By China’s Central Bank  
    by Tyler Durden, 
    China is finding itself in an increasingly more untenable situation, trapped on one hand by its sliding currency (and declining reserves), which as noted earlier it has manipulated higher by forcing overnight unsecured rates to spike, in the process punishing  “speculators” and other shorts… 

    … and on the other, by a banking sector that finds itself desperately in need of liquidity, unable to endure the PBOC’s monetary interventions, and on the verge of a liquidity crisis comparable to what Chinese banks suffered in the summer of 2013 when overnight rates briefly shot up above 20% as China pushed aggressively with a failed deleveraging campaign.

    All this came to a head late last week when as Caixin reported late on Thursday, interbank lending froze on Thursday after many commercial banks suspended interbank operations amid tight liquidity conditions. Caixin adds that major institutions such as securities firms and fund managers, suddenly found themselves in a liquidity vacuum after banks, including the big four state-owned banks, became reluctant to make loans.

Egon von Greyerz: Inflation, Stagflation, Hyperinflation & Deflation — All at the Same Time

  • Egon von Greyerz: Inflation, Stagflation, Hyperinflation & Deflation — All at the Same Time
    by Greg Hunter’s (Early Sunday Release)
    Financial expert Egon von Greyerz (EvG) says, “Bond markets around the world are in the biggest bubble in history.” EvG thinks when it blows up, we are going to get hit with everything in the financial horror house.  EvG explains, “We are guaranteed to have ‘flation.’  There will be inflation, stagflation, hyperinflation and deflation.  We will have all of that.  At the same time, a lot of prices will be inflationary or hyperinflationary, at some point, as they print more money.  We will also have deflation of debt and deflation of more of the bubble assets that the credit bubble has created.  Debt will implode and also property and stocks.”

    EvG goes on to add, “I know a lot of people have been buying into this Trump rally, which I find amazing in my view. The overvaluation on the U.S. stock market is just incredible.  The Shiller P/E ratio is now around 27.   It’s over 50% above the average, 50% above the average.  The value of the S&P to GDP is something like 75% above the average.  You are looking at massively overvalued stock markets, and people are buying into this.  It’s the absolute perfect trap.  I don’t see these stock markets staying at these levels for very long.  I think they are going to be turning soon.”

    On gold, EvG, who vaults gold for wealthy clients, says, “Gold is mainly going down because of the dollar. Since the Fed decision last week, gold has not really gone down in euros or Swiss Francs.  It’s gone down in these currencies only a fraction, maybe. . . . The dollar is just temporarily strong because of higher interest rates.  I think in 2017, the dollar is going to be the currency that will fall the most.”

Fed Fallout Escalates: China Bond Market Crashes Most On Record, Yuan Plunges


  • Fed Fallout Escalates: China Bond Market Crashes Most On Record, Yuan Plunges  
    by Tyler Durden, 
    After a bubblicious surge higher over the last few months (as China’s hot money swishes from one trending-higher market to another), China’s bond market is collapsing. As Chinese money-markets tighten into new year, yuan weakens, and capital outflows accelerate, so it appears the final bastion of safety has cracked. Chinese bond futures crashed overnight by the most on record, erasing in a week the gains of the last 18 months.

    The rally began in 2014, buoyed by slowing economic growth and a monetary-easing cycle that kicked off in November that year. Now that is over…

    As Chinese liquidity pressures ripple up from the short-term repo markets… 
    … Offshore Yuan has tumbled 5 handles since The Fed raised rates…

The Elite Are Attempting A ‘Soft Coup’, To Invalidate The Election

  • Published on Dec 12, 2016
    CIA and the Elite are now attempting a soft coup to invalidate the elections and remove Trump soon to be the President elect. They are using the propaganda that Russia cyber attacked the elections, they have no proof, they want to have the electors question the validity of the election which in-turn might call into question the results which will allow the election results to be invalid. Trump has reported that this is a false flag and John Bolton joined him. There are no links to the Russian government and no proof. Syria and Russia have liberated Aleppo and the terrorists are fleeing. The US and Turkey have pushed the IS from Iraq into Syria to retake Palmyra. The US is planning something much larger in Syria with the Wasp, Whidbey and the George HW Bush on standby in the middle east.
