Jim Willie: An Acceleration Of The Global Power Shift!

  • Jim Willie: An Acceleration Of The Global Power Shift! 
    by Shadow of Truth, The Daily Coin 
    January was just loaded with big events…the door was opened to a number of different channels working simultaneously for bringing about what I call the global paradigm shift and that’s basically the retirement of the dollar and the reinstallation of the gold standard both in trade and in banking.  –  Jim Willie, Shadow of Truth 

    Several events have emerged early this year which are symbols of the historic shift of power – economic, political and military – from west to east.  Perhaps the most visible symbol of this is the massive transfer of physical gold moving from western Central Bank and investment vaults into the massive new vaults erected in Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

    “Sooner or later we’re going to see a massive flow of major banking systems dumping Treasury bonds because they don’t use them anymore – they don’t want them anymore. And that’s when we’ll see QE4 come into play”

    Rory Hall and I hosted Jim Willie for an incredible discussion about all of the events that are occurring and operating to remove all aspects of power from the grips of Washington, DC, Wall Street and London.   We believe this is the best interview and commentary from Jim Willie in a long time.  Find a lot more about the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank, the new yuan-denominated gold fix, Ukraine and the imminent demise of the dollar.

Bix Weir: Disappearance of Dollar Happens This Year!

  • Bix Weir – Disappearance of Dollar Happens This Year! 
    by Greg Hunter’s 
    Financial writer and analyst Bix Weir predicts, “When we have our next crash, and it is coming, I believe it will be here this year, and that’s my final conclusion.  I am looking around September, but I believe it has already started.  When it does come, people will have a different mindset because they have learned so much.  It won’t take too many people to stand in front of an ATM machine and not get their money to be really angry at these people who have rigged our markets and basically stolen our country over the last hundred years.”

    Weir, who just released a book titled “Silver, Gold, Bitcoin . . . and God,” goes on to say, “People talk about the government taking us over, and they are going to have the police strong arm us.  That’s only as long as the system is up and running.  When the system fails, and it’s obvious that these people have screwed up the world, the police are not going to knock on doors taking houses.  They, more or less, will not even be working because who is going to be paying them?  They are going to go home and take care of their own house and their own friends.  They are going to be just as mad at the government as we are.  It is as very small amount of people who are going to get the blame, and that blame is going to come hard and fast.  There will be justice for all the crimes that have been committed.”

    Weir thinks the powers that be are preparing for a financial calamity.  Weir contends, “Both the good guys and the bad guys want the crash to happen.  The bad guys want the crash to happen because they know they are in trouble.  They think if they crash the system, they will walk away with whatever they have.”  And why do the good guys want the crash?  Weir says, “They want the crash to end the reign of the bad guys and to end this crazy system we are in now and put in a gold standard, or something to that effect.  They have been planning for this for a long, long time, which includes the Federal Reserve and the Treasury.  There are good guys and bad guys in both institutions.  The thing that has stopped them is the fear of the transition because nobody knows how it’s going to go. . . . There is no doubt there will be chaos. . . . The banks will freeze up and derivatives are going to go sideways, and you are not going to be worried about your 401K.  You are going to be worried about where you are going to get food, gas and water.”

The Titanic Sinks At Dawn!

Global financial system Titanic hits iceberg!

Global financial system Titanic hits iceberg!

  • The Titanic Sinks At Dawn! 
    by , 
    What Titanic?  The RMS Titanic, or any of the following:

    * A titanic quantity of derivatives – say 1,000 Trillion dollars. A derivative crash was at the center of the 2008 market meltdown.  It could happen again since there is now more debt, leverage, and risk than in 2008.

    * A titanic accumulation of debt – global debt is approximately $200 Trillion. Global population is about 7,000,000,000 so there is about $28,000 in debt per living human being.  If global debt were backed by all the gold mined in the history of the world, an ounce of gold would back $36,000 in debt.  Gold currently sells for less than $1,200.  Gold is undervalued and there is an excess of debt.

    * A titanic increase in debt in the past decade. Official US debt increased by over $10,000,000,000,000 in the past ten years.  What did the US gain from the increase of $10 Trillion in debt?  Are debt accumulation and expense policies materially different in Europe or Japan?  Was the debt used to create productive assets or was it just flushed down the toilet into non-productive expenditures?  THE BENEFIT IS GONE, BUT THE DEBT REMAINS.  This debt accumulation policy is neither good business nor sustainable.

    * A titanic bond bubble. Since interest rates are currently at multi-generational lows, or 700 year lows in Europe, or perhaps all-time lows, that strongly suggests a bubble in bonds.  Would you buy a bond from an insolvent government knowing the government will pay you next to nothing in interest over the next ten years?  Further, the government is guaranteeing a devalued currency so any dollars, euros, or yen you eventually receive will be worth much less in purchasing power than today.

    * A titanic currency bubble in the US dollar, which just hit a 12 year high after a parabolic rise since May last year. Experience with parabolic rises suggests extreme caution.

    * A titanic collapse in the crude oil market. Supply is strong, demand is weak, and prices have fallen to about $45 from about $105 last June.  The last time crude oil prices fell was from July to October 2008, a most difficult time.

    The titanic creation of paper assets such as bonds, currencies, and stocks has created substantial risk.  That risk has spilled over into the crude oil, gold and silver markets since they are strongly influenced by the paper derivative markets – paper contracts for crude oil, paper gold, and paper silver.  Leverage and derivatives magnify risk.  The instability will eventually create a second version of the 2008 recession/depression.

David Morgan: Debt Bomb Going to Explode in September 2015!

  • David Morgan: Debt Bomb Going to Explode in September 2015!
    by Greg Hunter’s 
    Renowned precious metals analyst David Morgan is out with a new book called “The Silver Manifesto.” In a chapter called “The Debt Bomb,” Morgan lays out the biggest problem and the biggest reason to own precious metals. Morgan contends, “Basically, the United States have exported our inflation to every other country. So, for them to stay competitive, they are required to weaken their own currencies for what is called competitive advantage. It simply means if they don’t print . . . their currencies would become too strong, and they would not be able to export. In order to keep trade flowing, these other countries are basically required to do what the U.S. government does, and that is export a great quantity of un-backed paper promises that are impossible to pay back. That’s the crux of “The Debt Bomb.” It’s going to explode. . . . The basic premises are: You default on the debt . . . or you keep kicking the can down the road, and you continue to debase the currency, which is what governments have always done when it’s a non-backed currency. If you look at the value of the Federal Reserve from 1913 to now, in a little over a hundred years, the Federal Reserve itself will admit that 100 cents is now worth about 4 cents. So, you have lost 96% of the value of the U.S. dollar. . . . That has been a failure, a tremendous failure. That is a collapse in slow motion. Now, what we are really arguing about is what’s going to happen to the last 4 cents of the U.S. dollar. . . . It looks to me that at some point, a tipping point, that you will get an acceleration . . . and things will change dramatically.”

    On the Greek debt crisis, will it be forced to default? Morgan says, “Yes, and the problem is everyone in power is acting like a bunch of kids. No one wants to be an adult and state the problem clearly. This new regime in Greece actually has. They are the only truth tellers at the political level that actually said we are bankrupt.”

Richard Russell: The Shocking Secret Central Planners Are Hiding From The World!

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

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

  • Richard Russell – The Shocking Secret Central Planners Are Hiding From The World! 
    As people continue to digest breaking news out of Greece and Ukraine, today the Godfather of newsletter writers, 90-year-old Richard Russell, discussed the shocking secret central planners are hiding from the world.  Russell also spoke about how this will impact people across the globe.

    Richard Russell: I follow numerous gold items daily. Something is going on with gold. There’s a secret that’s causing every central bank plus Russia and China to be buying gold.
    The world is caught in a cycle of deflation and deleveraging and every central bank is fighting the deflationary trend. I continue to think that the best defense against deflation is a sudden overnight boost in the price of gold. Gold sits at the bottom of an inverted pyramid. A huge increase in the price of gold would help minimize the effect of debt and deflation.
    Why is nobody talking about a potential boost in the price of gold yet? Has the Fed put a sheet of censorship over a potential increase? 

    What Do Central Banks Know?
    Almost every central bank is now buying gold along with China and Russia. What do they all know that we don’t? A major change in the monetary system lies ahead. Advice: Buy physical silver and gold while they are cheap and readily available.”

  • Richard Russell Just Exposed A Coming Event That Is Going To Shock The World! 
    As people continue to digest breaking news out of Greece and Ukraine, today the Godfather of newsletter writers, 90-year-old Richard Russell, just exposed a coming event that is going to shock the world.

    Richard Russell:  “The world’s balance sheet is heavily skewed toward debt and loans. On the asset side of the balance sheet we have gold and silver currencies.

    The Cure That Will Shock The World – Reset Gold Price To $5,000 or $10,000!
    What would make the balance sheet look saner and increase the asset side? It would be to reset gold to a much higher price. Why is it that nobody is writing about this? Resetting the price of gold to $5,000 or $10,000 an ounce would be a mighty step against deflation.

Jim Willie: The Greatest Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound in 2,000 Years!

Remember the Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules! Got physical gold yet?

Remember the Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules! Got physical gold yet?

  • Jim Willie: The Greatest Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound in 2,000 Years! 
    A final End Game has begun.  The current stage is the global rejection of the USDollar, the once respected revered and resilient currency which has in recent years fallen on its own Third World sword. QE is a Third World monetary policy, plainly stated. What remains is the loss of the most prestigious of the nation’s calling card, the USD as global reserve currency.

    The reaction of global USDollar rejection in response to Quantitative Easing, otherwise known as hyper monetary inflation, will go down in US history, even world history, as the greatest self-inflicted gunshot wound the head and chest in two thousand years.

    by Jim WillieGolden 

    It is very difficult to find a foreign policy deployed by the United States Govt that has been successful in recent years. In fact, almost all aggressive foreign policy initiatives have resulted in profound losses either in financial strategic position or in alliances with previous staid allied nations. They have almost uniformly backfired, while bravado has mixed with stupidity, while arrogance has blended with futility.

    The USDollar is soon to fade into oblivion. Its rise signals its demise. The hidden dismantle of the Petro-Dollar mechanism has been full of intrigue. The Gold Standard will return, but through the trade window. The solution to the untreated Global Financial Crisis is the gold route. The Eurasian Trade Zone will be built upon the gold route, and see a revival of the Silk Road with accompanying Maritime Routes. The nascent trade zone will soon include Germany and whatever nation follows its prudent lead. The movement cannot be stopped, not even by war. In fact, the Ukraine War will eventually catalyze the Eurasian Trade Zone, with European entries harboring disgust. The safe haven is not the USDollar, but rather Gold & Silver, otherwise defined as money. Banks find refuge in bullion bars, while individuals find refuge in bars & coins. Foreign nations will find refuge by banning the USDollar in trade settlement and banking reserve systems.

Realist News: Lindsey Williams – Summary of The New Elite 2015 DVD!

  • Note: I will not be posting Pastor Williams’ latest DVD because he has requested that it should not be done. (Although he does allow us to copy his DVD onto another DVD.) Please try your best to support Pastor Williams by ordering the original DVD, to help him defray the cost of production.
  • You can order Pastor Lindsey Williams’ new DVD here!
  • Summary of  Pastor Lindsey Williams’ latest DVD –  The New Elite 2015:

    * Imminent danger – there will be more posts on the website: . Please check it weekly.
    * The New World Order will be brought in, in its entirety and it should be starting this year (2015) at Sept-Oct timeframe when they (Illuminati) pull off this economic collapse.
    * Near future – banks crash/collapse, watch the financial derivatives market. This will be the event that triggers the collapse of America.
    * 5 TBTF (Too Big To Fail) banks have at least US$40 trillion dollars in derivatives. (It is a lot more than that.)
    * FDIC is not able to make good all the trillions of bank deposits when banks fail. Congress passed law for FDIC to cover financial derivative losses of the banks.
    * Everything is now in place for the Illuminati Elites to collapse America and the New World Order will step right in.
    * The Illuminati Elites are NOT God.
    * Violence in Washington. Fist fights in Congress, Senate, House .. by politicians.
    * A series of massive bankruptcies will take effect.
    * Interest rates will be rising. Financial derivatives collapse. When the dust settles precious metals will be all that remains of value. Paper assets will collapse.
    * Sept-Oct 2015 timeframe – most critical period.

    * Buy physical gold and silver. It may dip a bit initially because of deflation but it will reverse quickly and rise exponentially.
    * Only physical gold/silver will remain as money not fiat currencies.
    * Deflation – apart from food prices (and physical gold/silver), other asset prices will deflate ie. price collapse/fall. Food prices will rise ie. inflate!
    * Oil price collapse is Obama’s revenge on Russia/Putin for humiliating Obama. Illuminati elites told Lindsey Williams: they are not involved.
    * Obama made a deal with Saudi Arabia to smash oil price,  resulting in Russian Ruble collapse 50+%.
    * Illuminati elites very angry/unhappy with Obama.
    * New Elites – refer to the younger elites who are taking over and not the older elites in their 70s/80s.
    * They have plans to create a new (corrupted) version of the Bible.
    * They want a new US Constitution by Executive Order.
    * New leaders, new churches, new health care, culture … New World Order takeover!
    * “Devil’s Messiah” – defined as the Elites perverting everything in the Bible. New perverted meanings…
    Shemitah – 7 year biblical debt cycle will assert itself in 2015. Read Jonathan Cahn’s The Harbinger book.
    * VP Joe Biden’s (he is one of them, an elite) New World Order speech.
    * Elites positive that : “There’s going to be divine intervention!”

    * “Divine Intervention” – by this the Illuminati Elites mean the coming of the Anti-Christ!
    * Blood Moons Cycles, Shemitah, Jewish/biblical holidays … and major world events.
    * Obama uses ISIL and not ISIS. ISIL means Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. Levant largely means Israel. Illuminati plan: destruction of Israel.

    … and many more issues!

Andrew Maguire: The End is Nigh! The Death Of The LBMA And Big Trouble For Bullion Banks!


  • Andrew Maguire: The End is Nigh! The Death Of The LBMA And Big Trouble For Bullion Banks! 
    Today London metals trader Andrew Maguire told King World News why the end is nigh for the LBMA and there is big trouble for the banks!

    Andrew Maguire:  “The new international exchange already has a large Chinese participation, which is going to bring in the necessary liquidity to circumvent London.  The participants include wholesale entities, banks and large trading houses, some of whom act on behalf of central banks.

    Death Of The LBMA
    The large Asian banks were fed up with having their orders front-run.  So now they have complete anonymity.  This is why I said it’s going to be the death knell for the current LBMA bullion bank system.  It (the LBMA) is now scrambling to make changes, but it’s just too late.”

Banksters Rig Precious Metals Market!

  • Published on Feb 25, 2015
    Money laundering for terrorists and drug cartels, rigging LIBOR to attack Credit Union competitors, tax evasion — and now rigging the precious metals markets. Chalk up another crime to the usual suspects — the Banksters. Meanwhile, they move to charge depositors a fee for keeping money in their accounts (negative savings rate) as they get money for FREE from the Federal Reserve. But the Fed Chair says don’t audit the private Federal Reserve.

Shemitah: Does This Seven Year Cycle of Economic Crashes Predict The Exact Date of The Global Financial Collapse?

  • Shemitah: Does This Seven Year Cycle of Economic Crashes Predict The Exact Date of The Global Financial Collapse? 
    NY Times Bestselling Author Jonathan Cahn of The Harbinger & The Mystery of the Shemitah joins Metals & Markets to discuss the 7 Year Debt Cycle of Economic Crashes that has gone viral in the alternative media: 

    * Could a 7 year debt cleansing cycle called The Shemitah (literally The Collapse) explain the majority of financial crises in US history, and predict that the next major crash may be only months away?

    * Cahn explains how WWI, England abandoning in the Gold Standard, The Great Depression, WWII, Black Monday, The 9/11 Market Crash, & the 2008 Financial Crisis ALL can be tied DIRECTLY to this debt cycle year- many down to the EXACT DAY!

    * Does the debt cycle PREDICT THE EXACT DATE for the coming Global Financial Collapse?

    Last two US financial crashes occurred on the EXACT DAY predicted by the Biblical date of WIPEOUT- and the CYCLE WAVE PATTERN IS GETTING STRONGER!

    Could we see not only a dollar collapse, but the fall of America as a nation and empire in 2015?

Alan Greenspan Warns: There Will Be a “Significant Market Event… Something Big Is Going To Happen”!!

  • Mr Greenspan is, of course, well aware of the BRICS plan to Return to the Gold Standard. America reneged on the agreement they signed to implement it by last Feb 2014. Mr Greenspan is hinting, most likely, of the Revaluation of the Gold price by China as early as this week to implement a Global Currency Reset ie. Return to the Gold Standard.
  • The rumoured revaluation is in the order of 2X – 3X ie. gold price will be set to US$2500 – 3600/ounce from US$1203/oz currently. China will offer to buy up all physical gold at the much higher price using their US$2-3 trillion reserves ie. dump the USD, US treasuries for physical gold. (Silver will also be revalued at least 3X higher.)
  • This shock revaluation of gold price will trigger, easily, US$2 trillions of precious metals financial derivatives (PM price suppression) held by western TBTF criminal banks. The quantity of physical gold that has been stolen (at least 40,000 tonnes) by western banks to suppress gold price will have to be replenish at a much higher price. The western financial system will be shaken to its foundations.
  • Alan Greenspan Warns: There Will Be a “Significant Market Event… Something Big Is Going To Happen”!! 
    by Mac Slavo, February 22nd, 2015, 
    With the Federal Reserve printing trillions upon trillions of dollars to keep the economic system afloat, many investors and financial pundits have surmised that the fundamental economic problems facing the United States during the crash of 2008 have been resolved. Stocks are, after all, at historic highs.

    But the insiders know different. And if there’s any single person out there who understands U.S. monetary policy and its long-term effects on domestic and global affairs it’s former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan. As the head of the world’s most powerful central bank for nearly two decades he’s privy to the insider conversations and government machinations that have brought us to where we are today.

    Greenspan recently joined veteran resource analyst Brien Lundin at the New Orleans Investment Conference to share some of his thoughts. According to Lundin, the former Fed chairman made it clear that the central bank is facing a serious problem and one that will have significant ramifications in the future.

    We asked him where he thought the gold price will be in five years and he said “measurably higher.”

    In private conversation I asked him about the outstanding debts… and that the debt load in the U.S. had gotten so great that there has to be some monetary depreciation. Specially he said that the era of quantitative easing and zero-interest rate policies by the Fed… we really cannot exit this without some significant market event… By that I interpret it being either a stock market crash or a prolonged recession, which would then engender another round of monetary reflation by the Fed.

    He thinks something big is going to happen that we can’t get out of this era of money printing without some repercussions – and pretty severe ones – that gold will benefit from.
