Taking Away the Bankers Gun

July 19th, 2014 By James Corbett

...we have a direct role to play in choosing whether we want to remove the banksters' gun from the economy's head or whether we want to load the chamber and cock the hammer.

Last week we talked about how the bankers have a gun to our head. Whether it's the bank panics of centuries past or the banking collapses of our current era, the banksters' favorite ploy is to say that if governments and politicians don't do exactly what they say that they'll crash the economy.

            It worked for Morgan and friends when the Panic of 1907 paved the way for The Federal Reserve.

            It worked for Government Sachs and their NY Fed cronies when they threatened martial law on the street if Congress didn't pass the 2008 bailout.

            It's working as we speak as European bankers continue to threaten a European banking crash if Hungary (or other countries) press ahead with penalties and paybacks for loan gouging. (The latest news is that questions about Portuguese Banco Espírito Santo's health is causing a sell-off and panic in American markets.)

            All of this seems like an intractable problem. After all, the bankers do have a stranglehold over ...

Europe May Still Be In A Recession

July 2nd, 2014
By James Corbett

The Times is bold to openly admit a dangerous truth: no matter what the data says, the economic elite are wary of returning to a “normal” economy because, quite frankly, people are easier to rule over when they're scared.

The Ratings Game

June 28th, 2014
By James Corbett

Rating agencies as the secret weapon of 21st century warfare. For years critics have made the argument that the entire 2008 financial crisis would never have happened without the active collusion of the ratings agencies in giving their AAA prime rating to the toxic mortgage-backed securities that were at the heart of the subprime meltdown.

June 25th, 2014
By James Corbett

That the German people seem to be better informed about the evils of the Fed than Americans may be surprising... but there may be a logic to it. After all, this is the country where a growing grassroots movement called “Repatriate Our Gold” arose in 2012 to force the Bundesbank to announce that they would indeed repatriate 674 tons of their gold holdings at the New York Fed by 2020.

Link Dollar to Gold or face Great Depression II

June 14th, 2014
By Alfred Adask

...even at $20,000/ounce, 8,200 tons of gold is only worth $5.7 trillion-about one-third of the $17 trillion in cash allegedly being held offshore.  Anyone holding that $17 trillion would know he had only a 30% chance of redeeming his fiat dollars for gold and so would try to instantly send his fiat dollars into the US trying to beat all other competitors.
