Japan Is Signalling The End-Game For The U.S. . Tokyo TOCOM Launches Physical Gold Trading

Remember the Golden Rule: "He who has the gold Rules!"

Remember the Golden Rule: “He who has the gold Rules!”

  • Japan Is Signalling The End-Game For The U.S.
    by Dave Kranzler, http://investmentresearchdynamics.com/ 
    On a side-note, it’s important to know that late July/early August is seasonally the most quiet part of the year for the biggest eastern hemisphere gold accumulators. And we’re going into the “roll” period, when the bulk of the massive blob of August paper gold “rolls” into December, the next “front month” for Comex Paper gold. Having said that, China has actually slightly increased its gold imports this month. India has been in hibernation since March 1 but it’s biggest seasonal buying period starts in about four weeks. Unless smuggled gold into India is significantly greater in volume than anyone understands, India’s demand will be somewhat price inelastic and its elephantine appetite for gold will have a big impact on the price of gold.

    This leads us to Japan. Curiously, Japan announced announced last week that its TOCOM commodity exchange (Japan’s less corrupted CME-equivalent) would begin trading physical gold – like the Shanghai Gold Exchange – on July 25th – TOCOM Physical Gold.  It also announced that it would be introducing a delivery-at-settlement option for its current-month gold futures contract. That is, TOCOM gold futures buyers will now have the ability to take delivery of physical gold via TOCOM’s paper gold.

    The news of this event was largely muted in the western financial media and even the alternative media blogosphere largely seems to have overlooked the news release. But this is a highly significant development because it signals a subtle shift in Japan’s economic and monetary focus from west to east.  It will also create an big upward price-readjustment in gold and silver.

Italian Tax Debt Hits ‘ALARMING’ Levels, Warns IMF – The Same Spark that Toppled Greece

  • Italian Tax Debt Hits ‘ALARMING’ Levels, Warns IMF – The Same Spark that Toppled Greece
    by REBECCA PERRING, http://www.express.co.uk/  
    ITALY needs to overcome fragmentation within its financial system, the International Monetary Fund has warned as the eurozone’s third biggest economy faces challenges in the aftermath of Brexit.

    Financial watchdogs described the nation’s fiscal debt as “alarming” and warned structural problems must be addressed as it unveiled the state of Italy’s tax agencies. 

    The IMF published a report this week titled “Italy: Enhancing Governance and Effectiveness of the Fiscal Agencies,” as part of the Fund’s Capacity Development function, which aims to help countries improve public administration.

    According to Rai.TV, Juan Toro of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), claimed it was necessary to take significant measures in the recovery of credit.

    The Italian government is currently failing properly to collect tax revenues – one of the reasons behind Greece’s financial crisis.

    In a separate report, concerns Italy is on the brink of financial and political meltdown are rising and leader Matteo Renzi may be about to push it over the edge by calling a referendum on constitutional reform in October, potentially plunging the already beleaguered European Union into fresh chaos. According to the report one of the country’s biggest challenges is the evasion of VAT, which peaks to around 30 per cent over two to three years.

Austria Announces Plan to Build Huge Border Fence to Stop Migrants as Schengen Crumbles

Austria-Hungary_border_fence

  • Austria Announces Plan to Build Huge Border Fence to Stop Migrants as Schengen Crumbles
    by NICK GUTTERIDGE AND MONIKA PALLENBERG, http://www.express.co.uk/  
    AUSTRIA has unveiled plans to build a massive 100km fence along its border to stop migrants and refugees crossing into the country.

    Engineers in the central European state have finalised plans for the vast barrier, which would stretch along its entire southern border with Hungary. Austria has repeatedly clashed with Brussels over its clampdown on illegal migration and has already put a daily cap on the number of people who can claim asylum. 

    And earlier this year the country’s parliament voted through a motion allowing it to declare a state of emergency if migrant numbers suddenly rise, meaning it could instantly shut its borders. The new border fence will mark a considerable escalation in Austria’s physical attempts to bring down migration, with the country only having constructed one small 4km fence along its border with Slovenia to date.

    State officials have reached agreements with hundreds of landowners along the 100km stretch of border which will allow the fence to be put up in record time should the number of refugees increase again, according to a police spokesman. 

    Austria is on the Balkan migration route to the ‘promised lands’ of Germany and Sweden, where most asylum seekers arriving in Europe want to settle and start a better life.

European Financial System is ‘Nearing a Grand Catastrophe’

  • European Financial System is ‘Nearing a Grand Catastrophe’
    by http://sputniknews.com/  
    The cheap money policy of the European Central Bank creates risk for the entire European financial system, a German economist said.

    The European Central Bank purchased €85.1 billion ($94.8 billion) of debt in June as it increased its asset-purchase program, Bloomberg reported. The asset-purchase program is part of the ECB’s quantitative easing plan. The pace of buying in June compares with a target of €80 billion per month. Thus, the bank is directly investing into the European economy, bypassing the banking system.

    This program creates significant risks while its advantages are questionable, financial expert Ernst Wolff said. He warned that the initiative may result in a total financial collapse.

    The analysts explained that the ECB policy creates serious risks for small and less developed countries like Greece. At the same time, big economies like Germany take advantage of working with the regulator because the ECB acts in favor of rich and powerful investors.

    In addition to corporate bonds, the ECB is buying government bonds. However, according to its rules, the bank cannot purchase bonds at a yield lower than the bank’s deposit rate, which is currently —0.4 percent.

    However, Wolff noted, the ECB usually violates the rule, in particularly buying German government bonds.

END OF EU: Fears in Germany that Brexit Could Lead to Break Up of European Union

Brexit-Abandon_EU_ship_cartoon

  • END OF EU: Fears in Germany that Brexit Could Lead to Break Up of European Union
    by TOM PARFITT, http://www.express.co.uk/  
    NINE out of 10 German business leaders believe the EU is in a “critical” situation after Britain’s vote to leave, a new survey has revealed.

    The poll of 506 company executives laid bare the widespread concern in Germany that Brexitcould spark the break-up of the crumbling union. Two-third expect the EU’s global political power to decline while 40 per cent believe other countries will follow Britain out of the exit door. Renate Kocher, the head of the Allensbach Institute, which conducted the research, said: “The EU needs extensive reform to prevent further exits.”

    More than half of those polled believed the British economy will suffer “considerable damage” as a result of last month’s historic Brexit vote. But just 15 per cent anticipate heavy losses for Germany’s economy, despite the fact Germany is the UK’s largest export market in Europe. And nearly three-quarters believe major decisions should be made by the country’s parliament rather than put to the public in the form of referendums.

George Soros Doubles Down: Accept 300k Refugees Costing $30Bn, Or Risk EU Collapse

http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/690729/france-civil-war-jonathan-miller-nice-attack-extremism-marine-le-pen

Illuminist social engineers are brainwashing the sheeple into hating and killing each other. This is the Illuminist Clash of Civilizations (Samuel Huntington) psyop to lead the sheeple towards Albert Pike’s Satanic WW3. Expect major false flag attacks across Europe to ignite this war.

  • Illuminist George Soros (CIA, Committee of 300?) pushing for the collapse of EU.
  • George Soros Doubles Down: Accept 300k Refugees Costing $30Bn, Or Risk EU Collapse
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com  
    Seemingly doubling down on his comments in April (following what he called Europe’s “flawed asylum policy”), George Soros has expanded his demands from four to seven fundamental pillars on how to prevent the collapse of the European Union. In an article penned for Foreign Policy titled “This Is Europe’s Last Chance to Fix Its Refugee Policy,” Soros details his plan (over-riding the current “piecemeal approach”) for rescuing Europe before it is too late. Simply put, the billionaire says the EU must take in hundreds of thousands of refugees a year, spend at least 30 billion euros (a minor sum, since he believes it can all be financed by debt and taxes) or Europe faces an “existential threat.”

    Soros begins ominously: The EU’s piecemeal solutions are coming apart. Only a surge of financial and political creativity can avoid a catastrophe.

    The refugee crisis was already leading to the slow disintegration of the European Union. Then, on June 23, it contributed to an even greater calamity — Brexit.
    Both of these crises have reinforced xenophobic, nationalist movements across the continent. They will try to win a series of key votes in the coming year — including national elections in France, the Netherlands, and Germany in 2017, a referendum in Hungary on EU refugee policy on Oct. 2, a rerun of the Austrian presidential election on the same day, and a constitutional referendum in Italy in October or November of this year.

    Rather than uniting to resist this threat, EU member states have become increasingly unwilling to cooperate with one another.
    They pursue self-serving, discordant migration policies, often to the detriment of their neighbors. In these circumstances, a comprehensive and coherent European asylum policy is not possible in the short term, despite the efforts of the EU’s governing body, the European Commission. The trust needed for cooperation is lacking. It will have to be rebuilt through a long and laborious process.


    This is unfortunate, because a comprehensive policy ought to remain the highest priority for European leaders; the union cannot survive without it.
    The refugee crisis is not a one-off event; it augurs a period of higher migration pressures for the foreseeable future, due to a variety of causes including demographic and economic imbalances between Europe and Africa, unending conflicts in the broader region, and climate change. Beggar-thy-neighbor migration policies, such as building border fences, will not only further fragment the union; they also seriously damage European economies and subvert global human rights standards.

  • A Failed Coup… An Unrecognized Republic… And Triggers for a Global Economic Meltdown
    by Nick Giambruno, Senior Editor, http://www.internationalman.com/  
    The country is one giant powder keg… and the fuse is already lit. I’m talking about Turkey. When the next global crisis explodes, there’s a good chance Turkey will be involved somehow.

    Turkey was founded from the ashes of the Ottoman Empire. It’s where Europe meets Asia. Naturally, it’s a geopolitically significant country. Today, it’s at the epicenter of many crises that are destabilizing the world… the migrant disaster in Europe, the ongoing carnage in Iraq and Syria, the conflict with ISIS, and the new Cold War with Russia.

    In light of all these potential triggers for a global meltdown—as well as the recent failed military coup d’état—I think it’s time to take a closer look at Turkey.

    Bad Blood
    There’s one aspect of Turkey and its myriad of crises that nobody is talking about. That brings us to Greece, Turkey’s historical rival, and where a number of the coup plotters fled after their recent failed putsch. It’s no secret that the Greeks and Turks have been at each other’s throats since at least the 16th century.


    It’s a rivalry of historic proportions because, literally since the days of Homer, most of what is now Western and Southern Turkey had been populated by Greeks. That started changing with the Ottoman conquest of the 16th century, and after World War I, when Turkey ethnically cleansed the area by deporting hundreds of thousands of Greeks and stripping them of their ancestral homes without compensation.

Dawn of Federal EU: MEP Demands Dictatorial BAN on Countries Opting Out of EU Rules. Massive Push Towards a Unified European State: United States of Europe

Revelation 13 New King James Version (NKJV) - The Beast from the Sea: 13 Then I[a] stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns,[b] and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

  • Dawn of Federal EU: MEP Demands Dictatorial BAN on Countries Opting Out of EU Rules
    by NICK GUTTERIDGE, http://www.express.co.uk/  
    BRUSSELS should respond to the Brexit vote with a federalist crackdown on dissenting member states and a drive for total political union, a leading MEP has said.

    In a controversial intervention former Belgian prime minister and eurocrat Guy Verhofstadt called for EU leaders to ban countries from being able to opt out of unpopular measures like the Schengen zone and the Euro. 

    Bizarrely the MEP, who leads the main liberal party in the European Parliament, believes that the rise of euroscepticisim across the continent is actually a sign that people want more diktats from Brussels. 

    Mr Verhofstadt – a longstanding and vocal critic of Britain – said bureaucrats “cannot defend” the status quo and called for a massive push towards a unified European state. He said: “Today, we are sleepwalking towards a disaster, towards another 27 referenda ending the European Union. The Union must change, or it will die.”

    His comments put him at odds with even the most ardent arch-federalists in Brussels including EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker, who recently claimed he is “not an advocate for a United States of Europe”. 

    The heavyweight Belgian politician has released a draft report on the future direction of the EU project in which he calls for a redrawing of the treaties to crack down on what Mr Juncker has called “part-time Europeans”. 

    In it he proposes watering down the powers of individual countries and boosting the influence of the Commission and the Parliament, arguing that the current model cannot deliver “decisive results”.  And he advocates banning the kind of special dispensation enjoyed by countries like Britain from the most controversial Brussels measures, like the free movement zone and the single currency.

The Financial System is Breaking Down at An Unimaginable Pace

This is what is coming up for the world financial system.

This is what is coming up for the world financial system.

  • The Financial System is Breaking Down at An Unimaginable Pace
    by Simon Black, https://www.sovereignman.com/ 
    Now it’s $13 trillion.

    That’s the total amount of government bonds in the world that have negative yields, according to calculations published last week by Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

    Given that there were almost zero negative-yielding bonds just two years ago, the rise to $13 trillion is incredible. In February 2015, the total amount of negative-yielding debt in the world was ‘only’ $3.6 trillion. A year later in February 2016 it had nearly doubled to $7 trillion. Now, just five months later, it has nearly doubled again to $13 trillion, up from $11.7 trillion just over two weeks ago.

    Think about that: the total sum of negative-yielding debt in the world has increased in the last sixteen days alone by an amount that’s larger than the entire GDP of Russia

    Just like subprime mortgage bonds from ten years ago, these bonds are also toxic securities, since many of are issued by bankrupt governments (like Japan).

    Instead of paying subprime home buyers to borrow money, investors are now paying subprime governments. And just like the build-up to the 2008 subprime crisis, investors are snapping up today’s subprime bonds with frightening enthusiasm. We’ll probably see $15 trillion, then $20 trillion, worth of negative-yielding subprime government debt within the next few months.

    So this trend will continue to grow for now, until, just like in 2008, the bubble bursts in cataclysmic fashion. It took several years for the first subprime bubble to pop. This one may take even longer. But even still, we can already see the consequences today.
