  • Fritz Springmeier: The IMF Will Announce a New Global Currency on Sept 30th. The End of The PetroDollar is Here!
    by Fritz Artz Springmeier, http://www.facebook.com
    IT’S HERE; THIS IS IT. (21 SEPT ’16) This is the culmination of so many things I’ve written about in the past. I finally have a date to pass on, Friday, Sept. 30, 2016, (more specifically, perhaps late in the afternoon of the 30th for the IMF announcement.) (Before today, I thought it would be after Hillary was by voter-fraud & rigged voting made president.) I suggest you sit down while you read this. Insiders, who care more about their fellow humans, than the corrupt system they are part of, have whispered warnings about this. A few alert financial analysts like James Rickards have picked up on the Sept. 30th date & are warning people. Let me slow down and walk us through this financial watershed event. This kind of sudden destruction matches the prophecy of REV 18:8,10 (& PRV 6:15, ISA 30:13 & 1 THS 5:3).

    THE DOLLAR’S STATUS AS THE WORLD’S RESERVE CURRENCY, what some call the petrodollar. Because large deals between nations are done in dollars, it can be said that 85% of global transactions are done in U.S. dollars. I have explained many times that our dollar’s VIP status globally has allowed the U.S. to create as many dollars out of thin air that it wants without destroying the dollar’s value–inflating the supply of money is simply a global tax on everyone who holds dollars, and more dollars are held by foreigners overseas than by Americans. In other words, we have been getting a free ride. I have repeatedly discussed the moves behind the scenes to dethrone the dollar. Russia & China has been working behind the scenes to get the entire world to desert us. They have also been buying up high levels of gold. Now that moment that we have wondered about is actually upon us…the date is Sept. 30, 2016, when the IMF has plans to announce a “world money”. The IMF has been issuing low-key statements about this new world currency. Additionally, hidden on it’s site is a 42-page blueprint entitled “Enhancing International Financial Security” which spells out in obtuse difficult to understand jargon that they are going to announce this new “world money”. This is the “global reset” that Christine LaGarde (hd. of the IMF & Illum.) has been talking about. When our dollar crashes, the IMF will run our economy like they have been doing to other 3rd world nations in debt. The Illuminati will directly run the show (all of America’s finances) through the IMF. Foreign central banks are preparing to ship their useless dollars back to the USA.

  • WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?? Friday the 30th will come & go like all days for you. It will be like when the 9.0 Indonesia earthquake happened. The resulting tsunami took time before it hit Thailand and India. But things will fundamentally change that day. Dollars will be dumped for the new “world money”. It won’t be long before the stock market loses perhaps 60% of its value. Sell your stock now. The “world currency” (whatever they call it) will not be available to the common person, only the elite, although James Rickard has written a book: The Only Way to Own the New World Money. He has a way that people can access the new money through him. He has also written a book on this Sept. 30th event entitled: The Big Drop (2nd edit.) I have not seen the book myself. Rickard also puts out a periodical called “Strategic Intelligence”. After this global “reset” your 401K will go to 0. Gold and silver at some pt. will hold their value, so I highly recommend the actual metals…not paper receipts saying you have gold.

Oliver Stone’s American History: “We’re Not Under Threat. We Are The Threat”!

  • Oliver Stone’s American History: ‘We’re Not Under Threat. We Are The Threat’!
    by James Reinl, http://www.middleeasteye.net/  
    As he launches his new TV series offering a critical view of US overseas exploits, the film director tells MEE he didn’t always see it that way.

    UNITED NATIONS – American controversies are Oliver Stone’s forte. The Hollywood movie director has turned his cameras on the assassination of John F Kennedy, the Vietnam War and the 9/11 attacks. But, when researching his television series, The Untold History of the United States, it was American exploits in the Middle East that left him with the most lasting impression, he told Middle East Eye on Wednesday.  

    “When I studied the untold history, one thing that really hit me hard was the history of our involvement in the Middle East,” Stone said. “It was a nefarious involvement.”

    Stone traces Washington’s hand in the region back to the 1930s, but he says it reached a peak when President George HW Bush sent hundreds of thousands of US troops to liberate Kuwait after the Iraqi invasion of 1990.

    The Soviet Union had recently collapsed and the region was wide open to a lone superpower, he said. “We never got out of there. Once we were in, we’re in forever,” Stone said. “We’ve destabilised the entire region, created chaos. And then we blame ISIS for the chaos we created,” he added, referring to the Islamic State (IS) group that now rules swathes of Iraq and Syria.

    Stone researched and wrote the series and book with Peter Kuznick, a scholar at the American University who specialises in the US nuclear strikes on Japan that ended the Second World War.

    “It’s all about the oil. You remember the bumper sticker: What is our oil doing under their sand?” Kuznick told MEE. Washington’s hunger for fuel underpins its alliance with Saudi Arabia, the CIA-backed coup against Iranian prime minister Mohammad Mosaddegh in 1953 and its support for anti-Soviet religious militants in Afghanistan in the 1980s, he said. “We create these messes, then we have a grand military plan to solve them. And the military solutions just don’t work,” he said.

    The views of Stone and Kuznick are not likely to raise eyebrows on the streets of Cairo, Moscow or Paris. But in the US they are not mainstream. The way Stone tells it, Americans live in a bubble and are spoon-fed information by a school system, politicians and a media that portrays the US as a beacon of stability and a force for good in the world.  

    In one famous example, former President Ronald Reagan called the US a “shining city on a hill”. “It’s very comforting to be an American,” Stone said. “You get the sense that you are safe and have prosperity of material goods, and that you have enemies everywhere – Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. “You get into this cocoon where you have a big country, two oceans, but that you’re always under threat.”

    Stone says he understands this well because he lived it himself. He was raised in New York, the son of a Republican stockbroker, Louis Stone. He was always creative – he often wrote short plays to entertain his family – but never questioned how his history teachers puffed up the US, he said.

    “I had only gotten a part of the story, which emphasised American exceptionalism, America as a selfless and beneficial country to the world,” he said.

    In 1967, Stone volunteered to fight in the US Army and served in Vietnam. He was wounded twice and was honoured with a Bronze Star for heroism and a Purple Heart for his service. “I came back from Vietnam puzzled, completely confused about what was going on there,” he said. “But I did get a heavy dose of the doublespeak, the militarese talk.”

    He started asking questions and reading up on “progressive history” at the same time as he studied filmmaking at New York University under Martin Scorsese and other teachers, he said.

US On The Verge Of Complete Failure In The Middle East, The Petrodollar Is Doomed

  • Published on Aug 8, 2016
    Obama’s operation choke point was to remove the competition for large corporations. UK is sending 60 troops to Africa to garrison the countries there. South Korea is not putting the responsibility on China to control North Korea. Syria and Russia are on the verge of taking back Syria. The US is on the verge of complete failure in the middle east, which means the petrodollar is doomed. Obama sets up a cyber attack command which will be separate and apart from the NSA.

Paris Strikes Astonishing Partnership with Secret ISIS Sponsor Tied to Hillary Clinton

Hillary_Clinton-American_Terrorist

  • Paris Strikes Astonishing Partnership with Secret ISIS Sponsor Tied to Hillary Clinton
    by NAFEEZ AHMED, http://www.thecanary.co/  
    The City of Paris has struck a corporate partnership with French industrial giant, Lafarge, recently accused of secretly sponsoring the Islamic State (Isis or Daesh) for profit.

    Documents obtained by several journalistic investigations reveal that Lafarge has paid taxes to the terror group to operate its cement plant in Syria, and even bought Isis oil for years.

    Yet according to the campaign group, SumOfUs, Lafarge is the corporate partner and sand provider to the City of Paris for this summer’s Paris-Plages urban beach event. The project run by Office of the Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, will create artificial beaches along the river Seine in the centre and northeast of Paris.

    Lafarge also has close ties to Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Apart from being a regular donor to the Clinton Foundation, Clinton herself was a director of Lafarge in the early 1990s, and did legal work for the firm in the 1980s. During her connection to Lafarge, the firm was implicated in facilitating a CIA-backed covert arms export network to Saddam Hussein.

    Blood money
    An investigative report by the French daily Le Monde revealed in June that the corporation, the world’s leader in construction materials, had paid taxes to Isis middlemen, as well as other armed groups in Syria, to protect its cement business operations in the country.


    But the Le Monde story only covered a fraction of the revelations. Previous investigations by Zaman al-Wasl, an independent  news outlet run by elements of the Syrian opposition, revealed that Lafarge had even regularly bought oil from Isis.

Jim Rickards: September 4, 2016 an Important (RIP) Day for the Death of Petrodollar?

James_Rickards-RIP_Petrodollar_March1975-4Sept2016

  • Jim Rickards: September 4, 2016 an Important (RIP) Day for the Petrodollar?
    by http://lonestarwhitehouse.blogspot.com/  
    This is a brief news note. It looks like Jim Rickards has provided us a new date to keep an eye on. In his Strategic Intelligence newsletter, he says that the upcoming G20 meeting in September will start the beginning of the end for the petrodollar. 

    The Strategic Intelligence newsletter is a paid subscription service, but the twitter comments pasted in below give us an idea what Jim thinks on this and show that he believes that China will be making some interesting moves at the G20 meeting to be held there this fall. 

    I also got an email recently from Willem Middelkoop to let me know he is in China right now and will soon have out a new essay on SDR substitution at the IMF. Looks like some interesting news may be coming up soon and we will watch for it here.

Global Markets Crash After UK Decision to Exit EU

  • Published on Jun 24, 2016
    Global shares and financial markets sharply fall after Britain’s decision to leave the European Union. UK banks Barclays, Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds lost around 20 percent of their values. The pound fell as much as ten percent against the dollar to touch levels last seen in 1985. Other European shares fell as much as nine percent after the UK vote sent shockwaves across global markets. In Asia, Tokyo’s benchmark stock index fell almost eight percent, the biggest one-day fall in almost five years. Oil also dropped in Asian markets. The sharp slump came on fears that Britain’s decision could hit investment in the world’s fifth-largest economy, threaten London’s role as a global financial capital and usher in months of political uncertainty.

Jim Willie: Silver Byproduct Supply Problems Could Mean 5 Fold Gains in Silver?

  • Published on Jun 14, 2016
    Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed returning guest, editor of the Hat Trick Letter at Golden Jackass http://www.goldenjackass.com/, Jim Willie.During this hour+ long interview, Jason asks Jim questions about the global economy and markets including:


    1) Former Goldman Sachs alumni and current Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank President recently said in public that the Federal Reserve serves Main St. Do you agree with him?
    2) Will the powerful politicians and bureaucrats running the EU allow Brexit to occur?

    Look inside the ECB’s asset buying (manipulation) program (of propaganda)http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-06… 

    3) Do you think the economic and political elites were meeting at the recent Bilderberg meeting to discuss how to implement fully digital currencies and a cashless society on a global scale?
    4) Do you think the US wants a new president in place in Brazil to allow US oil companies to buy up assets from PetroBras as Petrobras faces financial problems from low oil prices and too much debt? Are the Chinese also planning how to get involved in this with strategic investments into mining and oil in Brazil? 
    5) China is now issuing RMB bonds from it’s BRICs bank and Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. In your opinion what does this mean for the global financial system and the Petro Dollar?
    6) Bloomberg recently ran an article saying that the Chinese want to have more control over how all commodities are priced since China is the largest buyer of many commodities. Do you think China is doing a step by step process to castrate the LBMA and the COMEX? 
    7) Do you think there’s a manipulation tug of war in the oil market between Russia/Saudis who want the higher cost producers all bankrupt while Wall St banks want to move oil prices higher to avoid declaring tens of billions in bad oil loans?

Another ‘Conspiracy’ Confirmed: Khomeini Had A “Secret Channel” With The US

Khomeini_message_to_US_Govt_1978_9

  • Khomeini was an Illuminist puppet ie. a Satanist. He was controlled opposition, implanted into Iran by the CIA, MI6 (British Intelligence) and Israeli Mossad. He was, of course, a tool of the Satanic cabal via the western Illuminati. (See bottom of post: Khomeini is a Savak Agent.)
  • “The Muslim Brotherhood in Iran, including Ghotbzadeh and Ibrahim Yazdi, Iran’s foreign minister, is “above the komitehs,” and above Khomeini. Ghotbzadeh … is widely known in Paris, where he lived in exile, as very close to British intelligence. … Ghotbzadeh is a notorious homosexual-sadist; and he is reported to have been a sexual partner of the Ayatollah Khomeini himself.” – Quote Khomeini is a Savak Agent.
  • Another ‘Conspiracy’ Confirmed: Khomeini Had A “Secret Channel” With The US 
    by James Corbett, TheInternationalForecaster.com , June 7, 2016
    It’s been an open secret that the US organized and enabled two of the three major events in modern Iranian history: the overthrow of the democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh in 1953 and the Shah’s subsequent reign of terror (and eventual exile). But newly-released documents confirm that the US had a larger role than previously admitted in the third: the Islamic Revolution of 1979.

    The documents, reported on last week by the BBC’s Persian Service, confirm that Ayatollah Khomeini was in direct communication with US President Jimmy Carter in the crucial weeks following the Shah’s departure from Iran on January 16, 1979. And, despite vigorous denial by the Iranian government, the records show that Khomeini struck a conciliatory tone with the US government as he attempted to broker his return to the country.

    “You will see we are not in any particular animosity with the Americans,” Khomeini wrote in a message to US President Jimmy Carter at the time, part of a series of recently declassified diplomatic cables, policy memos, meeting records and other documents obtained by the BBC. The White House responded that they would not be adverse to the possibility of a change in the Iranian constitution, a tacit acceptance of the overthrow of the shah and institution of a republic. Khomeini, in return, assured Carter that: “The oil flow will continue after the establishment of the Islamic Republic.”

    The records indicate that Khomeini’s contact with the US Government stretch back to 1963, when the then-exiled religious leader made contact with President Kennedy to inform him that “he was not opposed to American interests in Iran” and “expressed his belief in close cooperation between Islam and other world religions.”

    The Iranian government has some support for this position from an unlikely source: Gary Sick, a member of Carter’s National Security Council at the time of the revolution who describes himself as “the point man in the White House dealing with Iran.” He wrote a recent blog post dissecting the BBC report and noting that the content of these documents has been known for decades and has been discussed in greater context by himself and others throughout that time. However, Sick does not dispute the central contention that Khomeini had engaged in conciliatory exchanges with the US prior to returning to Iran.

    That these documents are only being declassified now should not come as a surprise. It took 56 years for a sitting US President to finally admit to the US’ part in the overthrow of Mossadegh (despite having been revealed to the public nearly a decade earlier). If anything, the idea that the US may have had a role in the rise to power of Khomeini is decades ahead of schedule.
