Bankers Going for Broke Because They Know it’s Broke – G. Edward Griffin

Bankers Going for Broke Because They Know it’s Broke – G. Edward Griffin

Edward Griffin, author of the wildly popular book about the Federal Reserve “The Creature from Jekyll Island,” is holding a conference this weekend called “Red Pill Expo.” It is all about waking people up from the illusions they are being told. Griffin explains, “The illusions are in health, in politics and in education. The illusions are in the media, in money and in banking, which is my specialty. So, people are coming, some of whom are informed, but most respond to the slogan we are using for the “Red Pill Expo,” and the slogan is ‘Because you know something is wrong.’ That sort of spells it out for most people, not just in America, but for people all over the world. People everywhere are being fed propaganda, lies and false stimuli of all kinds, but deep in their hearts, deep in their instincts, they know something is wrong.”

What’s wrong in the financial world with the longest expansion in history and the Fed starting QE (money printing) again? Griffin says, “We are living in a system of the banks, by the banks and for the banks, and that is the reality. . . . They see that the wheels are coming off. . . . The system of inflation in which we live cannot go on forever. . . . All systems of exponential growth always collapse. They come to an end at some point, and it’s hard to tell exactly at what point, but you do know there is a breaking point where it just moves beyond reality. The banks know this better than anybody. So, I am assuming that they feel they are at the end. You can smell it. You can see it. You can touch it almost.

MSM Co-conspirators with Deep State Treason – James Howard Kunstler

MSM Co-conspirators with Deep State Treason – James Howard Kunstler

Renowned author and journalist James Howard Kunstler thinks what has been happening for the last few years with the mainstream media’s coverage of President Trump borders on criminal activity. Kunstler explains, “What I am waiting for is if and when indictments come down from Mr. Barr and Mr. Durham.  I am wondering whether the editors and publishers of the Washington Post and New York Times and the producers at CNN and MSNBC are going to be named as unindicted co-conspirators in this effort to gaslight the country and really stage a coup to remove the President and to nullify the 2016 election. I say this as someone who is not necessarily a Trump supporter. I didn’t vote for the guy. I am not a cheerleader for the guy, but basically, I think the behavior of his antagonists has been much worse and much more dangerous for the nation and the American project as a long term matter.  I really need to see some action to hold people responsible for the acts they have committed. . . . I am not an attorney, and I have never worked for the Department of Justice, but it seems to me that by naming the publishers and editors of these companies as unindicted co-conspirators, that allows you to avoid the appearance of trying to shut down the press because you are not going to put them in jail, but you are going  to put them in disrepute. That may prompt their boards of directors to fire a few people and maybe change the way they do business at these places.”

Kunstler says things look unlike anything we have seen in the past because we are approaching a day of reckoning in our debt based monetary system.

After Trump War Only One Party Will Be Standing – Kevin Shipp

After Trump War Only One Party Will Be Standing – Kevin Shipp

Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says the political war over removing President Trump from office is heating up, and when it’s over, things will never be the same. Shipp explains, “We are already seeing a brewing civil war in the civilian population in the United States. There is a war in Washington D.C. between (Congressman) Schiff and the others that are trying to eliminate the people’s choice for President by American voters. That’s what is going on. . . . You can see the violence on the streets, and it’s getting worse and worse against Trump supporters. This is going to escalate almost monthly, in my view, as we see more violence and more splits in Washington D.C. It is so seminal all the way down to the corruption we are talking about, there has got to be only one party left standing. That is either the Trump Administration or the DNC and some of the globalists that want Trump out of there. Obviously, if the progressive Marxists win, they will want to change our Constitution. Only one of them is going to win and be left standing. That’s how deep, dark and powerful it is. How many senior level officials are involved?  Only one party is going to be left standing, and it’s going to get nastier and uglier by the month.”

Some say that there have been no arrests or prosecutions, and patriots are getting frustrated with what seems to be inaction. Shipp says there may be a good reason for the Trump Administration to go slowly in dismantling the Deep State globalists in the government that are trying to kick Trump out of office.

Cheap Money Not Going to Work Anymore – Charles Nenner (#1)

Cheap Money Not Going to Work Anymore – Charles Nenner (#1)

Renowned geopolitical and financial cycle expert Charles Nenner says forget what the mainstream financial channels are saying about more Fed easy money policies pushing the markets higher. Nenner explains, “The clever institutions I work with were selling all the time when the S&P was around 3,000, and the small investor and public were buying, buying and buying. The clever money was so happy then . . . . The small investor buys and all the time they (clever money) get a chance to sell, sell and sell until they are finished selling. Then, suddenly something happens. Then the small investor who holds the cash and he’s in a crisis, and here we go down. I always stress to the small investor, understand how this game works. Day before yesterday, the Dow was down 1,000 (inter-day). I heard one person say maybe you should sell. It’s always buy, buy, buy. They don’t do anybody any favors because there are so many losses. I never hear CNBC say sell, sell, sell. So, it’s a crooked game.”

What does he say to people waiting for the Fed to drive markets back up with easy money? Nenner says, “We are finished with the cheap money. It’s not going to work anymore. That’s what the big investors understand. Even if we have 0% rates, it’s not going to keep this economy going. They cannot keep it going anymore.”

Last time Nenner was on USAWatchdog.com, he said “gold was going up” and “interest rates were going to continue to fall.” He was correct and says those two trends are going to continue. Nenner says, “We are in a new bull market in gold, and the price is headed to at least $2,500 per ounce. . . .

Who Bails Out Central Banks in Coming Chaos –James Rickards

Who Bails Out Central Banks in Coming Chaos –James Rickards

Best-selling financial author James Rickards says “We are still in the aftermath of the 2008 – 2009 financial crisis.” In the up-coming book titled “Aftermath: Seven Secrets of Wealth Preservation in the Coming Chaos,” the crisis of the Great Recession may be over, but “nothing is fixed.” Rickards explains, “I understand the economy has been expanding for 10 years, and we are not in a liquidity crisis at the moment and unemployment is low. We have come a long way from that. The fundamental problems that gave rise to that have not been solved. . . . So, unlimited guarantees, unlimited money printing and unlimited currency swaps and, yeah, they truncated the crisis, but all that happened was the bad debts, the leverage and the problems were now lifted up to the central bank level. You’ve got this progression. First, it is the hedge fund. Then, it’s Wall Street. Now, it’s the central banks. Who is going to bail out the central banks? That problem has not been solved, and it’s still on the table.”

Rickards says don’t think the Federal Reserve is going to come in and ride to the rescue in what Rickards is predicting to be a “coming chaos.” Rickards contends, “Interest rates are 2.25%, but that is not what you need to get out of a recession. I am not predicting one, but if the U.S. economy went into a recession . . . history in economics says you need to cut interest rates 4% to 5% to get the U.S. out of a recession. How do you cut interest rates 4% when you are at 2.25%? You can’t because there is not enough room.

Artificial & Fragile Market Very Dangerous – Michael Pento

Artificial & Fragile Market Very Dangerous – Michael Pento

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Money manager Michael Pento says don’t confuse a near record high stock market with strength and resiliency. What we have is just the opposite, as Pento explains, “There are some people who will listen to this and say, ‘Hey Mr. Pento, why are you such a Cassandra? Why are you so down? Don’t you know that the stock market is doing great? Don’t you know that I have a job?’ But here’s the thing, the entire edifice, the entire construct is artificial. It is controlled by governments and central banks. Hence, it is much more fragile, infinitely more fragile than if it was dictated by the free market. . . . This has to end badly because the distortions have to be reconciled. It was once okay to have recessions and corrections in the stock market when the stock market was not the economy, but asset prices have become the economy. Therefore, they lead the economy and they don’t follow the economy. Yes, this is going to end badly I am sorry to say.”

What will knock this market back to reality? Pento says, “You will eventually get a recession or eventually you will get inflation. You might just get both. You might just get a huge case of stagflation to hit this country and around the world. That’s what I am most afraid of.”

In closing, Pento warns, “Japan has no growth. There is no growth in Germany. There is no growth in Italy. We have an earnings recession here in the United States. So, what you have engendered here is most likely a protracted period of stagflation, which is going to lead to an epic and massive crash in asset prices. That’s what you have at your feet, so be careful.”

Recession Already in Place, Watch Out – John Williams

Recession Already in Place, Watch Out – John Williams

You might be wondering why the Trump Administration is calling for rate cuts and money printing with all the good news about the economy. Economist John Williams of ShadowStats.com knows why and contends, “We have a recession in place. It’s just a matter of playing out in some of these other funny numbers. The reality is on the downside, where you have mixed pressures right now. People who are really concerned about the economy right now, and that includes President Trump looking at re-election, he’s been arguing that the Fed should lower rates, and I am with him. The Fed created this circumstance. They are pushing for the economy on the upside because they want to continue to keep raising rates. Banks make more money with higher rates, and they are still trying to liquidate the problems they created when they bailed out the banking system back in 2008.”

Williams strips out all the financial gimmicks in his work that make things look better than they really are to give a true picture of the real financial health. Take for example the recent reportedly good news of the trade deficit narrowing. Williams says, “What we saw was the very unusual narrowing of the deficit . . . that’s generally good news . . . but if you look at why the trade deficit was narrowing, it wasn’t that we were having new surging exports . . . instead, we were having collapsing domestic consumption.  People weren’t buying things. People were not buying goods. So, the imports were falling off, and that narrowed the deficit. That is not a healthy sign. The last time you saw something like that was the beginning of the Great Recession (2008–2009). . . . We still haven’t recovered from the Great Recession.”

Gold & Silver Will Survive Whole System Burning Down – Bill Holter

Gold & Silver Will Survive Whole System Burning Down – Bill Holter

Financial writer and precious metals expert Bill Holter is “not worried at all” about the current price smash down for precious metals. Holter says, “We live in a world where all liabilities are more than all liabilities in history. This whole system is going to come down. . . . If you see a house burn down, the only thing left is the foundation. That’s the only thing left because the foundation doesn’t burn. That’s what gold and silver are, and that’s what’s going to be left when this house of financial cards burns down.”

Why are dark powers intentionally driving metal prices down? It’s all part of a very simple thought control message. Holter explains, “Basically, it’s so the people believe that gold is bad and the dollar is good. It’s basically to support the dollar, and also thus support the Treasury market. . . . This has to have an official backing to it. It could not be done if they were not given a pass. This would not be going on if there was true rule of law. . . . We don’t have free markets. There are no markets. All markets are rigged. . . . Markets should be panicking that we are moving towards hyperinflation. All markets are locked down, and they are locked down by derivatives. . . . In 2008, there were $1.4 quadrillion in derivatives. How is it possible that derivatives are larger than the system as a whole? The answer to that is because derivatives have become the system. Derivatives are what price the system. You are basically putting up one cent to control $1. So, it’s easy to put the price of something where you want it to be.”

Intractable Inflation Very Dangerous New Paradigm – Michael Pento

Intractable Inflation Very Dangerous New Paradigm – Michael Pento

Money manager Michael Pento says get ready for big inflation. Pento explains, “When the emergency ended (from the 2008-2009 financial meltdown), they were going to reverse course, sell those assets back to the public and take those dollars out of the economy. . . . A funny thing happened on the way to doing that, the global economy imploded. So, here’s the point . . . the central banks have admitted, tacitly at least, they can never take away those assets. They can never drain their balance sheet, meaning they have permanently monetized this debt. Interest rates can never be allowed to rise above 0% in nominal terms and, in real terms, will grow more and more profoundly negative. That should shock investors. That is a moment of enlightenment, a watershed moment, an epiphany throughout the world. Hello investors, central banks are putting you on notice that nominal interest rates are going to be at 0% or below, and real interest rates will grow more and more negative throughout time. . . . If China cannot re-leverage its economy for explosive growth, and central banks are extremely fettered with their ability and means for which to stimulate economic growth immediately, I would be cautious about buying this rally, which I am. I think we are going to have one more sharp downturn in the equity market . . . and then, here’s the sad truth, you have to go massively long inflation hedges.”

This brings up top gold and silver for protection against the coming money printing and inflation. Pento explains, “These currencies will collapse against precious metals as they did in Rome. Prices will go a lot higher as they did in Rome. . . . When people lose faith in a currency’s purchasing power . . . this is why gold has had spectacular three month rally, and I expect it to continue after a little consolidation here. . . .

We’re Flash Crashing to Hell – Jim Sinclair & Bill Holter

We’re Flash Crashing to Hell – Jim Sinclair & Bill Holter

Financial writer Bill Holter and renowned gold and financial expert Jim Sinclair warned last summer there were big problems coming in the global financial system. Today, Sinclair says, “We destroyed everything. We not only destroyed the financial markets, we destroyed society. I’m going for June of this year. The reset button gets reset after a few days of a flash crash that can’t be stopped. We’re flash crashing to hell, piece by piece by piece, until all of a sudden, the motion of the entity cannot be stopped.”

Holter says, “I think President Trump is going to preside over a bankruptcy. He’s gone through bankruptcies with his own companies and understands the process. That’s what this is. It’s the bankruptcy of the corporation of the United States.”

Sinclair adds, “Much of Trump’s business career is in bankruptcy, and he has used it as an asset quite successfully.”

Holter also points out, “Paul Volker, when he was Chairman of the Fed, was able to raise rates and able to tighten the money supply. He was able to create a deep recession. The reason he was able to do that was the country, corporations, individuals and the federal government itself was not over-leveraged in 1980 to the extent it is today. The over-leverage is everywhere today. If Paul Volker came in today and tried to do what he did back in 1979 and 1980, all you would see for markets and the economy is one big black smoking hole. You would have the entire system come down.”

Sinclair warns, “If Bill and I were standing on a street corner as preachers, our sign would read not ‘the end is near.’ Our sign would read, ‘it ended.’”

Global Collapse Accelerating Buy Gold Now – Chris Martenson

Global Collapse Accelerating Buy Gold Now – Chris Martenson

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Futurist and economic researcher Chris Martenson says a collapse is “a process, not an event.” Martenson contends the long awaited global collapse, on many fronts, has not only started, but is picking up speed. Martenson says, “Our prediction at PeakProsperity.com is these collapse trends, we have been following for 10 years now, are accelerating and continuing. None of them are reversing at this point in time. These will impact people’s future in a huge way. Environmentally, we see these signs, but we also have $245 trillion of debt in the global economy. We have been accelerating that debt cycle as if we could just keep that trend going forever—we can’t. So, what we see are all these unsustainable trends converging. They are going to happen . . . and people need to be ready.”

Martenson lays out the case to blame central banks for much of the geopolitical and economic friction in the world today. Martenson says, “The economic pie is not expanding anymore. It’s kind of stagnant. So, if you have one tiny group taking their fair share and the pie isn’t growing, it means they are taking from somebody else. This is the essence of central banking. They don’t create wealth, they redistribute wealth. When the Federal Reserve crams rates to zero, the savers lose out, but lose to who? The winners and losers are being picked by the central banks, and they have decided that the .01% should be the winners in this story and everybody else should be the losers. . . . Central bank policies have really benefited the elites at the expense of everybody else. This brings up the most important point and that is central banks are not our friends. They are redistributive organizations.”

Fed Will Crash Markets & Dollar, Gold Protects – John Williams

Fed Will Crash Markets & Dollar, Gold Protects – John Williams

Economist John Williams warns the Federal Reserve has painted itself into a very tight no win corner. No matter what the Fed does with rates it’s going to be a disaster. Williams explains, “You had some very heavy selling towards the end of the year and when you saw the big declines in the stock market you also saw that accompanied by a falling dollar and rising gold prices. That was foreign capital which was significant fleeing our markets. So if the Fed continues to raise interest rates, and they want to do and they still don’t have rates where they want them, it’s going to intensify the economic downturn. That’s going to hit the stock market. If they stop raising rates . . . and they have to go back to some sort of quantitative easing, that’s going to hit the dollar hard. Foreign investors are going to say the dollar is going to get weaker and let’s get out of the dollar. Then, you are going tom see heavy selling in the stock market. So either way they go, they created a conundrum for themselves because of the way they bailed out the banking system (in 2008-2009). At this point they don’t have an easy way out of this.”

Williams says the U.S. is already entering into a recession. Williams contends, “The first quarter, which is the quarter we are in right now, the first quarter of 2019 likely will be in contraction partially due to the government shutdown. That is slowing the economy on top of the interest rate hikes, but the cause of the recession here is not the government shutdown. It’s the Fed hiking rates . . . the fundamental driving factor that was putting us into recession even before the government shutdown was the rapid rise in interest rates.”

Secret Money for Private Armies – Catherine Austin Fitts

Secret Money for Private Armies – Catherine Austin Fitts

Investment advisor and former Assistant Secretary of Housing Catherine Austin Fitts says it looks like a “global recession is coming.” Is that going to cause the debt reset we’ve been hearing about for years? Fitts says, “Make no mistake about it, there is no reason for the federal government to default or monkey with any debt because they can literally print the currency. The question is how do they make sure whatever they are printing really holds any kind of store of value. I think the reason you are seeing them reengineer the federal bureaucracy and financial transactions infrastructure is because they want much greater and tighter control to do whatever they do, and that includes to continue to debase the currency. They could do this (reset) entirely by debasing the currency. . . . What we are watching . . . is essentially a coup. We had a financial coup, and now we are watching a legal coup to consolidate that financial coup. I would keep my eye on the fundamental governance structure of the U.S. The important thing is not what they do. The important thing is who controls no matter what they do. Now, we have created a mechanism for them to control entirely in secret and create policies entirely in secret, including around the back of a U.S. President. . . . It’s pirating by the ‘just do it’ method. I said to someone the other day, what is it about secret money for secret private armies that you don ‘t understand?”

$21 trillion in “missing money” at the DOD and HUD that was discovered by Dr. Mark Skidmore and Catherine Austin Fitts in 2017 has now become a national security issue. The federal government is not talking or answering questions, even though the DOD recently failed its first ever audit. Fitts says, “This is basically an open running bailout. Under this structure, you can transfer assets out of the federal government into private ownership, and nobody will know and nobody can stop it.

Debt Reset Begins, Global Banks Issue Dire Warnings, Trump Wall Showdown

Debt Reset Begins, Global Banks Issue Dire Warnings, Trump Wall Showdown

According to renowned gold investor Jim Sinclair, the global debt reset that has been long predicted has begun. Lots of debt that will never be repaid will be written down around the world. Sinclair says gold and silver will be the last men standing when the dust settles.

The BIS, World Bank and the IMF have all issued dire warnings in the past few weeks of financial “storm clouds.” In other words, the biggest bankers in the world are warning of another financial meltdown coming in the not-so-distant future.

Nance Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are being beaten up so badly over the government shutdown and security funding for a wall on the southern border that even singer Cher is telling the Speaker of the House and the minority leader in the Senate to “Be the Hero” and cave in and put 800,000 government workers back to work. The U.S. has a $4 trillion budget (that’s $4,000 billion) and Nancy and Chuck are holding up the government for little more than $5 billion in funding for security that includes a wall. Even Democrat James Carville is making fun of Chuck and Nancy’s response to Trump’s network appeal for a border wall and security on the southern border.

Join Greg Hunter as he gives his take on the top stories of the past week in the Weekly News Wrap-Up.

After the Wrap-Up:

Catherine Austin Fitts founder of Solari.com will be the guest for the Early Sunday Release. She will give us an update on the serious matter of $21 trillion in “missing money” at DOD and HUD and why it will soon affect every American.

Deep State is Deep Bottomless Corruption – Dave Janda

Deep State is Deep Bottomless Corruption – Dave Janda

Host of the popular radio show “Operation Freedom” Dr. Dave Janda comes on to talk about what has been going on and what’s coming in the fight with Deep State globalists to control America. Janda says before the indictments can happen, Trump “has to clean up the FBI and DOJ.” 25 top people from the FBI and DOJ have been fired or quit for misconduct, including treason in trying to remove Donald Trump form office in a failed coup. Part of the cleanup also includes getting rid of “dirty judges” and installing judges that “will follow the Constitution and the rule of law.”

Janda contends, “The Deep State equals deep bottomless corruption.” Anyone that thinks that nothing is getting done to get rid of the corrupt Deep State is misinformed. Dr. Janda says reports of prosecutor John Huber (who was installed by Jeff Sessions) and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz not doing their jobs and covering up for the Deep State are totally false and explains why in great detail. He also tells us all what to expect in 2019 concerning indictments and prosecutions. There is not just one case of corruption and treason in America, but several huge cases unlike anything ever before seen in American history.

Janda also contends the high level players involved in fraud, treason, money laundering, espionage, obstruction of justice, racketeering and sedition are turning on each other. Dr. Janda says, “The Deep State is panicked and desperate because they are not hardened criminals. . . . They are turning on each other to cut a deal to keep them out of prison.” The punishment may also include something worse than prison for the massive crimes and treason some have committed.
