The Final Act Will Be World War

by Bill Holter, jsmineset.com

Sadly, I must write what follows and do not do it lightly. Over the years when writing, I have held little back. Nothing will be held back in this missive as we are on the brink of war because apparently we have lunatics in Washington (and elsewhere) far more insane than the inmates they oversee.

This past week has seen the lunacy shift several gears in only days. We see the U.S. pushing Russia for war everywhere. We recently stationed and commissioned live nuclear missiles in both Poland and Romania …along Russia border. I can only imagine the response were Russian missiles stationed in Cuba or even Mexico? Russia has taken this (and other moves) very seriously as their population of 40 million drilled last week for a nuclear attack. They have also stationed their S300 and S400 missiles in Syria, U.S. warplanes will be on suicide missions should they aggress.

This is not “gut feel” or hunch, my conclusions are a result of actions. Yesterday we learned the RAF (British air force) instructed their pilots to shoot down Russian planes over Syria. We also know the U.S. recently painted several planes in Russian colors. Do you really believe this is for a drill? Or more likely some sort of false flag where eyewitnesses swear they saw MIGs with their own eyes attack some target?

We also learned yesterday that Philippine president Duterte has ordered the U.S. out and off their islands. In what world could this ever happen? He knows history and knows Marcos was killed for far less. Why is he emboldened? Simply because he has cut a deal with China/Russia for his protection and that of the Philippines.

Other pieces to the puzzle include Russia calling for the return of their school children in foreign lands, Yemen recalling all of their worldwide ambassadors, and diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Russia are now dark. We also know “today is the day” that “military options” in Syria will be discussed by Obama and his advisors in Washington. I would first ask, why are we even in or around Syria? There has been no declaration of war by Congress, Syria has not “invited” us as they have the Russians, and there is no (bogus) U.N. resolution calling for our military intervention. On what grounds are we even in Syria?

I have said for quite a while, the odds of us having an election have been getting slimmer and slimmer. What would a hot war with a nuclear exchange do to the odds? Please understand this, for all of Donald Trump’s bad points, he has now taken on the both the Dems and Repubs as a “system”. For all intents and purposes, they are one and the same. He cannot be allowed to win because both the Clinton and Bush crime families will be exposed. Much of the crime has been financial and why our economy and markets are on the verge of collapse.

A war will serve to postpone/prevent an election so Trump nor anyone else will be able to move us back toward the rule of law. A war will also be blamed as the reason our economy and markets fall apart and completely seize up. It will be said, “our policies were working and would have worked …except for the war”. Unfortunately, I believe kicking the table over is THE only option left.

I have had several readers write in to me after my last interviews and admonish me for not thinking this through correctly. They have chided me and I paraphrase, “they are not crazy and will not opt for war because no one wants to kill themselves or commit suicide. A nuclear war is suicide.” To this I would respond, desperate people do desperate things. They cannot allow their criminal activities to be exposed and will do anything to stop the truth from coming out. These people are so narcissistic they probably believe (and have prepared for) they can survive a nuclear war because they are such “superior human beings”. We are dealing with absolute delusion here folks, DO NOT underestimate the evil, nor the lengths these people will go to cover their tracks.

Others have chided me for talking about “war” yet not spelling out what it really means. War, and any nuclear exchange will mean your “life is over”. Americans located at ground zero will be the lucky ones as the survivors will die a slow death either from radiation or starvation. Do not fool yourself, the U.S. is broke, the aftermath of any exchange will leave the U.S. isolated and shut off from credit. The world will no longer accept dollars for trade and our trade deficit will no longer see containers of goods dropped off in exchange for dollars. “Distribution” will also break down with our financial markets, “goods” will not make it to store shelves and banks holding worthless dollars will not allow you access as their doors will be shut. Simply put, unless you can survive a world that goes back to 1900 and earlier, you will not survive. Ask yourself this, can today’s pampered population survive if I-phones and internet do not exist? It is a very hard hitting realism but understanding how far we have strayed from “self sufficiency” is an important concept to understand.

To finish, I believe there is still a chance to avoid global war …but will result in U.S. civil war. Even though the press is refusing to report on the Wiki dumps, I believe Mr. Putin (as demonized as he is) has the ability to stop the madness with a “truth bomb”. If Mr. Putin drops a gigantic truth bomb with absolute and incontrovertible proof, maybe war can be avoided. His truth

bomb(s) will need to include everything from a to z. It must include proof of the rigging of markets, stolen and embezzled funds, stolen and rigged elections, drug running, illegal arms sales, and of course murder and assassinations.

Many of these truths are currently being revealed by WikiLeaks but not reported by any mainstream press and of course the dots not being connected by a very dumbed down public. We even learned of Justice Scalia’s “wet works” (assassination) yesterday via the e-mail dump …not even a Supreme Court Justice’s assassination warrants MSM coverage? In my opinion, Mr. Putin must dump what truth they have amassed and do so globally and as loud and flamboyantly as possible. Somehow, the information must be forced to be seen by an American public with blinders on. I believe the only way that war is avoided will be from a mass uprising and gross civil unrest of the U.S. population screaming ENOUGH!

Praying God’s mercy for us all,

Bill Holter

Yeah, buh bye. Tool.

Yeah, buh bye. Tool.

It was the best news I’ve heard in a long time.

I awoke to hear on the morning news that brits voted to kick the EU down the road. Hooray! Victory for the people! Defeat for the evil globalists!!

My elation lasted approximately two hours only, until I came across this article by Alt-Market, excerpted below:

Here’s why the vast majority of analysts were caught with their pants down on the UK referendum:

1) They assumed that the Brexit will hurt globalists – In the article linked above, I outlined why the Brexit actually aids international financiers and central banks by creating a scapegoat for a market crash that was ALREADY going to happen.  Rather than re-explaining my position, here is a large portion of quotations from that article:

I believe the Brexit vote may be allowed to succeed, here’s why…

1) Elites including George Soros have suddenly decided to dive into the market to place bets on the negative side. Dumping large portions of their stock holdings, shorting equities and buying up gold and gold mining shares. Soros has been preparing his portfolio for a successful Brexit vote while at the same time publicly warning of the supposed dire consequences if the referendum passes.  The last time Soros put this much capital into the markets was in 2007, just before the crash of 2008.

2) The IMF and the BIS have been warning since late 2015 (for six to eight months) that a global economic downturn is on the way in 2016. We saw considerable volatility at the beginning of this year, and markets are due for another shock. The last time the BIS and IMF were so adamant about an impending crash was in late 2007, just before the 2008 market plunge.

3) While the Federal Reserve has not yet implemented a second rate hike (I still believe they could use a rate hike this year to stab markets in the back if necessary), Janet Yellen pulled a maneuver which was almost as upsetting to investors. After the Fed policy meeting last week, markets were moderately exuberant and stocks were rising, then, Yellen opened her mouth and blamed the Brexit for the rate hike delay

Here is what the Fed has done: By delaying the second hike for another month, and then blaming the Brexit vote as a primary reason, they have created a bit of a paradox. If the Brexit vote passes, the Fed is asserting that they may not hike rates for a while, giving market investors the impression that the global economic recovery is not all that it is cracked up to be. If the Brexit vote fails, then the Fed MUST hike rates in July, otherwise, they lose all credibility. I believe Yellen’s claim that the Brexit vote was the cause of the hike delay was highly deliberate. It has triggered what may become a growing firestorm in equities and commodities.

From the point of view of investors, if the Brexit passes, then all hell breaks loose. If the Brexit fails, then the Fed will hike rates and once again, all hell breaks loose. Or, the Fed refuses to hike rates even though its number one scapegoat is out of the picture, it loses all credibility, and all hell breaks loose.

It’s a lose/lose/lose scenario for the investment world, which is probably why global markets plunged after Yellen’s remarks. Investors have been relying on the predictability of central bank intervention for so long that now when ANY uncertainty arises, they run for the hedges.

Look, we Christians know how this story ends: we win, but before that will happen, they win – the globalists, the evil cabal – if only for a short time. They will have their New World (Dis)Order, come hell or high water, and any gain that seemingly goes to us, actually can be turned by them into their advantage.

They could certainly have falsified the ballot results to keep the UK in the EU if they had wanted, although it would have been more difficult as it appeared to be a paper ballot according to the news footage I was watching. They and the one they serve currently hold the reigns of power on this earth, and until everything is fulfilled in the fullness of God’s allotted time, they will continue to prevail and prosper over us. There are dark times coming – and it may just be around the corner, if Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com is correct, and this vote was allowed to pass only so the elite could blame it, and not themselves, for the economic carnage that surely is coming.

This article is the third in a three part series by Ann Barnhardt, who states on her blog that “everyone has full reprint permission – I’m not writing this stuff to exercise my fingers, I’m writing it to be read.” So, if you have a blog of your own, have at it and spread the truth. What this article speaks so concisely about is the much-ignored reality that the people of any country – NOT the corporate entities, including governments – are the true creditors. I spoke of this same reality in a previous post, Why The Meek Shall Inherit The Earth. The criminal elite do not want anyone to know this truth, but it’s time for this truth to be known – and I can’t think of anyone better equipped to explain it than the fire-breathing chainsaw herself, Ann Barnhardt.

We Are The Gold

by Ann Barnhardt

 

At the end of the day, any currency is backed not by physical commodities or a collective abstraction called “a government”. No. A currency is backed by the character and integrity of men that constitute the issuing nation or body. In short, WE ARE THE GOLD. We are the bearers of the “full faith and credit” which backs our Federal Reserve notes today. And that, dear readers, is why this country is not going to turn itself around anytime soon, and is almost certainly doomed in the short-run.

Every text I read over the last few days always included a very brief caveat that all of the preceding theory was, of course, contingent on a moral society with a functioning rule of law, honest regulation and a populace that was mostly honorable and trustworthy. This caveat was phrased differently in each instance, but it was always there, hanging over everything else like a fine mist. If you have a nation of moral degenerates, all bets are off. If the people are more dishonest than honest, and the government is nothing more than a mafia, then all economic systems and all postulations fly apart at the seams. If there is no rule of law, and if theft, graft and looting are the prevalent systems of economic activity, then no matter what your banking system, no matter what your currency – fiat or commodity-backed, your system and your economy will absolutely, positively fail eventually.

Sadly, that is where we are in this country. Sure, there are still good people, but as a percentage it isn’t even remotely enough to bear the burden of the massive moral degeneracy of the others. Even among those people who would never steal or loot, there is a decided lack of courage to stand up to those who do steal and loot. The MF Global confiscation proves this. People have mostly rolled over and taken having their money stolen, shrugging their shoulders and telling themselves that there is nothing they can do – and then going back for more, continuing to patronize the very exchange that facilitated the theft and fraud. To my knowledge, only one broker has exited the field on purely moral grounds in a pre-emptive action to protect clients, and as a protest to the injustice of the system itself.

Our government is saturated with corruption, looting and outright treason and criminality, and yet most people simply cannot be bothered to care, much less to act, and are thus passively complicit. A non-trivial percentage of the population are planning and maneuvering to best “benefit” or profiteer from the criminality and fundamental dishonesty of the paradigm. Others are attempting to enter the oligarch class themselves under the guise of running for political office – and make no mistake, this encompasses both the so-called left and the so-called right on the political spectrum. The degeneracy is everywhere.

The fall of a society can happen very quickly. Our society has taken roughly 50 years to topple. If the previous example of the Russian culture is any example, we can expect it to take many multiples of 50 years to undo this damage, if and only if the pendulum has reached its maximum amplitude and now begins to swing back, which I fear has not yet happened. Morality cannot be legislated. Cultures cannot be purged of evil, selfishness and sloth overnight – even with a war. I cannot lie to you and tell you that short of Divine Intervention, this situation will resolve itself in any of our lifetimes. We had “it.” We had “it”, and we squandered “it”, and now “it” is gone, and no governmental, economic or monetary policy will get “it” back. “It” can only come from God, dwelling in the hearts of men, and God only comes to men if they specifically ask Him.

We, the people, always have been and always will be the ultimate backing commodity of our currency, because at its core, money is merely the representative device for a man’s capacity to produce and create. Dishonest men do not create or produce. They steal. Thus, the currency of a morally degenerated society is by definition degenerate itself. The currency of a degenerate society is the proxy not for a man’s ability to work and think, but rather a proxy for a man’s capacity to steal and evade work.

We used to be like gold – beautiful and warm. Now we are like pig iron – cold, brittle and good-for-nothing. And THAT is what constitutes the “full faith and credit” that backs the U.S. Dollar. So long as our culture remains degenerate, our currency can never be anything but spiraling, worthless trash.

Nobody cuts through the political and economic bullshit like Mr. Celente. Here he sums up the pertinent facts about where we are at in this Global Ponzi scheme.

Money velocity is a measurement of how quickly currency changes hands and moves through the economy. The faster it changes hands, the healthier the economy is.

The chart below should scare the bejeezus out of anyone. It reveals that current money velocity is even lower than it was during all of the Great Depression. That can’t be good. How the economy is still kicking at all is a mystery, but this seems to indicate that it’s already dead – it just doesn’t know it yet.

Sometimes it’s easy to overlook the sheer gravity of events as they are unfolding, only to look back later and realize that those events were history in the making.

Such is the situation right now with Greece and it’s negotiations with the EU.

Immense pressure is being put onto Tsipras as he tries re-negotiating the onerous austerity measures placed upon his country, measures that are “non-negotiable” according to Wolfgang Schäuble, the German finance minister.

Most economists are in agreement that were Greece to default and/or exit the EU, that union would fall like a house of cards.

Adding fuel to the fire is the offer extended by Russia to give much needed aid to economically faltering Greece, an offer that may extend even to admission to the BRICS union. Even China has invited Tsipras to visit for talks with their Premier, Li Keqiang. This would be a brilliant tactical move on two fronts for Russia and China – putting immense economic pressure onto the EU while also gaining an ally on European soil.

The European Central Bank has done to Greece what the IMF and World Bank has done to countless developing countries before them – offered loans promising to bring prosperity and economic development, but which only end up impoverishing that country and its people as they struggle to service an oppressive debt that will never be fully repaid, thanks to their draconian “terms & conditions.” Hence the institution of “austerity measures.” Their treachery would make the Devil himself proud – not surprising, considering they follow his playbook.

BDI graph

The BDI doesn’t lie, but your politicians certainly will. They will tell you there is a recovery, when there is none.

The BDI is the fundamental indicator economists look at to determine the currrent health of the economy, and where it’s headed. That’s because it is a measure of what is probably the most tangible thing economists ever look at – “the price of moving the major raw materials by sea.” – Wikipedia

Real materials being transported in order to make real goods. That indicator is at almost the lowest point ever recorded, which means there is no recovery to speak of, regardless what the talking heads are saying.

Add to that the ‘history in the making’ movements taking place right now between Greece, the EU, and Russia, not to mention the cause of it – the biggest debt bubble in human history – and you have the ingredients for interesting times.

And don’t forget, when the Chinese coined the phrase “May you live in interesting times,” it was meant as a curse, not a blessing.
