As 2015 passes by(good grief, is it nearly half over?), increasingly more folks are beginning to understand just how big the problem of market rigging by large banks truly is. The cancer of intervention and bankster rigging continues to go mainstream. Case in point: several days ago, the Bloomberg headline of half a dozen banks pleading guilty of conspiring to rig world currency markets raised alot of eyebrows.
While those of us who are stacking veterans, are all too familiar with these crimes, headlines like these are a very positive sign, and very helpful, because those headlines(if shared far and wide) do a great deal to pepper the subconscious minds of the masses with truth.
Though you and I know that the market rigging is alive and well, especially in precious metals, at times like this it’s critical to remember that as powerful as these bankers are, they still fail in many instances of manipulation. To remind us of that, todayI wanted to write about a case of manipulation which was recently rebuffed and defeated.
There are no free financial markets in America, or for that matter anywhere in the Western word, and few, if any, free markets of any other kind. The financial markets are rigged by the big banks, the Federal Reserve, and the Treasury in the interests of the profits of the few big banks and the dollar’s exchange value, which is the basis of US power.
There is a contradiction between a strong currency on one hand and on the other hand massive money creation in order to sustain zero and negative interest rates on the massive debt levels. This inconsistency is revealed by rising gold and silver prices.
Japan could turn to the globalist World Trade Organization to force Taiwan to import seafood and other products that might be tainted with radiation from the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster.
In recent days, the government of Taiwan began imposing stricter rules on inspecting food products imported from Japan that might have originated from areas exposed to radioactive fallout from the crippled plant. That prompted the Japanese government to warn that it could call on the WTO for a trade ruling unless Taiwan eases up on its restrictions.
Reuters reports that under the new Taiwanese rules, only foods with a government place-of-origin certificate will be permitted in the country. In addition, certain items from specific regions in Japan will have to undergo radiation testing before they are given access to Taiwan’s markets.
Last week, I unveiled the content of an email from a former Lt. General who had very grave concerns about Jade Helm. In a subsequent email, this same source expressed concern over series of possible nuclear detonations on American soil.
“My (and others) greatest fear is that rouge elements within the numerous federal agencies will unleash targeted nuclear detonations within several U.S. cities… But no one knows how many of the weapons are actually in play”.
The S&P 500 currently stands at 2,126, fractionally below its all-time high. It is now 300% above the 2009 low and 34% above the 2008 and 2001 previous highs. Most people believe this is the new normal. They are comfortably numb in their ignorance of facts, reality, the truth, and the inevitability of a bleak future. When the herd is convinced progress and never ending gains are the norm, the apparent stability and normality always degenerates into instability and extreme anxiety. As many honest analysts have proven, with unequivocal facts and proven valuation measurements, the stock market is as overvalued as it was in 1929, 2000, and 2007.
Have you heard of the saying “sell in May and go away”? Traditionally, the period from May through October has been a time of weakness for stocks. In fact, on average stocks hit their lowest point of the year on October 27th. And most people don’t remember this, but the Dow Jones Industrial Average actually began plunging right at this time of the year just prior to the financial crisis of 2008. Most people do remember the huge stock crash that happened in the fall of that year, but the market actually started to slide in May. Throughout the first four and a half months of 2008, stocks moved up and down in a fairly narrow range, and the Dow closed at a short-term peak of 13,028.16 on May 19th. From there it was all downhill for the rest of the year. So will a similar thing happen in 2015 as we approach the next great financial crisis? Since March 20th, the Dow Jones Transportation Average has already fallen by almost 800 points. So will the Dow Jones Industrial Average soon follow? Well, only time will tell, but the Dow was down 190 points on Tuesday. Signs of trouble are popping up all over the place, and the “smart money” is getting out while the getting is good.
Andy Hoffman joins me to document the collapse for May, 2015. We discuss the Fed’s fudged meeting minutes, the Big Banks latest crimes for which they’ve paid billions in fines yet NO ONE goes to jail, the Bankster’s desire to BAN CA$H, Mockingbird donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton, and the litany of reasons to GOTS: Get Out Of The System!
Richard Russell: “Monday was Memorial Day, the day in which we show our appreciation to the hundreds of thousands of men who have died in America’s wars. My family on my father’s side has fought in all of America’s major wars, from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War to World War I and World War II. Last night I watched Ken Burns’ amazing documentary, The Civil War.
Casualties and deaths during the Civil War were astounding. During the Civil War, two percent of the population of the US died. Of the deaths in the Civil War, two out of three were caused by disease or infection. I don’t think I’d ever call the world civilized until men cease killing each other in wars.
Russia’s central bank once again increased its gold holdings substantially in April. They added another 300,000 ounces to their existing stockpile bringing the total up to 40.1 million ounces (see chart below).
It marks the continuation of a policy which was only slightly affected by last year’s rouble crisis following the collapse in the price of oil and Western imposed sanctions.
In an address to Russia’s lower house a senior policy maker at Russia’s central bank indicated that while gold prices fluctuate they offer invaluable insurance against external factors. Dmitry Tulin, manager of monetary policy said.
While ‘Snake Plissken’ goes on share that FEMA will likely preside over the coming martial law and most Texans are blind to the entire thing, the very disturbing email that All News Pipeline recently received from one of our readers that we are sharing with you in full below regarding Jade Helm 15 and the military exercises that we are now watching unfold across the country is enough to chill anyone about the events we’ll likely soon see coming. ANP has also received the photograph below from a reader who saw this at a Washington Wal Mart.
“Doublethink,” George Orwell famously remarked, “means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.”
The corporate news media similarly tend toward selective recall when approaching and interpreting crucial facts of national and world history. A recent example involves John Ellis “Jeb” Bush’s tentative May 10 admission that he would not have embarked on the disastrous invasion and occupation of Iraq had he possessed the information that his brother’s presidential administration willfully kept from the American public.
Did you ever stop to put some thought into the flushing power of your toilet?
It’s one of those things we in modern society take for granted. We use the restroom, then we flush, wash our hands, and forget it.
But during extreme scenarios, this isn’t always so easy. When researching my book, The Prepper’s Water Survival Guide, I spent a lot of time reading about water, sanitation, and waterborne illness. These issues are all closely linked, and it’s vital to find solutions.
It seems the fascist oligarchy have used every deception to seize power at every source, but we haven’t lost our sense of humor about it.
From the biggest scams on the planet to dominate you and get your money, to the lies that excuse attacks on your family and your children, the world is a pretty scary place. Fight back by being informed and pointing out how ridiculous their control mechanisms really are – it takes away their power.
Asset-hole and so-called “too big to jail” banks admitted criminal looting through market manipulation and collusion last week, and will return a mere 33% of one quarter’s income without prison sentences (total “fine” of $5.7 billion from $15.5 billion 2015 1st-quarter combined incomes – see below).
Please note that the US Department of Justice (sic) fails to communicate the amount looted by the banksters, only the “fines” without context of:
this is a bankster operating expense for pretending to operate under law that will be paid by the shareholders,
