    Fed Vice Chairman Warns: Your Bank May Seize Your Money to Recapitalize Itself

    At the height of the financial crisis in 2008 the U.S. government forced some of the countries largest banks to take “bailout” funds amounting to billions of dollars in order to keep them from going bankrupt. It was a move designed to not only keep too-big-to-fail financial institutions afloat, but one that would inspire confidence and keep American consumers spending. As a result, the last several years have seen stock markets reach record highs with Americans continuing to rack up personal debt for real estate, vehicles, education, and consumer goods as if the financial crisis never happened.

    But the purported recovery may not be everything that government officials and influential financial leaders have made it out to be.

    Recent comments delivered by Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer suggest that not only are global and domestic economies still struggling, but the U.S. government itself is preparing financial contingency plans in anticipation of another widespread economic event.

    However, this time around, according to Fischer, the government won’t be bailing out financial institutions in need of cash. Instead, failing banks will turn directly to their unsecured creditors when they need money. And within this context, that means you.

    The recession that began in the United States in December 2007 ended in June 2009. But the Great Recession is a near-worldwide phenomenon, with the consequences of which many advanced economies continue to struggle. Its depth and breadth appear to have changed the economic environment in many ways and to have left the road ahead unclear.

    Work on the use of the resolution mechanisms set out in the Dodd-Frank Act, based on the principle of a single point of entry–though less advanced than the work on capital and liquidity ratios–holds the promise of making it possible to resolve banks in difficulty at no direct cost to the taxpayer.

    As part of this approach, the United States is preparing a proposal to require systemically important banks to issue bail-inable long-term debt that will enable insolvent banks to recapitalize themselves in resolution without calling on government funding–this cushion is known as a “gone concern” buffer.

    Full text and video available at FederalReserve.gov

    Though Fischer doesn’t detail exactly what “bail-inable long term debt” actually is, one only needs to look to Europe, namely Cyprus, to understand what he means.

    When the Cypriot banking system collapsed because of an inability to service its debt in 2013, the government forced bank depositors to cover the debts. This led to banks forcibly seizing funds from depositor accounts in order to pay their debts.

    According to the Fed Vice Chairman, the U.S. government is now proposing similar rules, following in the footsteps of Europe and Japan, who have already prepared such measures.

    The bottom line is that financial, economic and monetary policymakers in the United States are fearful that another crisis, perhaps even worse than what we saw in 2008, is going to be playing out in the very near future. Otherwise, why would they find it necessary to take the drastic step of forcing bank depositors to act as a backstop for their financial institutions?

    But this time around, it won’t be the government that bails them out directly. Instead, if you have an account with the bank, you are an unsecured creditor for that institution, just like the people of Cyprus were for their banks. And when that bank inevitably comes under pressure because of an inability to cover their debts, it is you who will become the bailout mechanism.

    It’s not hard to imagine how this scenario might play out the next time around.

    At the first hint of another crisis we’re going to see panic that will make 2008 look like a picnic. First, stock markets will sell off en masse across the world as a scramble to not be the last one out takes hold of investors. This, in turn, will lead to liquidity problems at major financial institution across the country. As banks run out of cash to cover the tens of billions of dollars they need to service their existing debt, they will turn to the new policies described by Stanley Fischer.

    What this means is that one morning you could wake up and see ten or twenty percent of your funds transferred out of your account and exchanged for long-term debt (like a bond) with the promise that the bank will pay it back to you at a later date.

    The immediate result, as you might expect, will be widespread bank runs, just as we saw in Europe when Cypriot depositors got hit. But, there will be no cash to be had save a few hundred dollars here and there, as banks will limit ATM withdrawals and will likely shut their doors to customers.

    This, of course, would have an effect similar to what we recently saw in Ferguson, except riots and looting will be taking place in every major city across the country.

    And though it may seem like an impossible scenario to envision in today’s peaceful and stable America, the U.S. military and Department of Homeland Security doesn’t think so. For the last several years they have been war-gaming and simulating widespread economic collapse scenarios and they’ve been stockpiling everything from armored vehicles to riot gear in over 8,000 counties across the United States in preparation for the civil unrest that would explode from coast to coast.

    Tess Pennington, author of The Prepper’s Blueprint, warns that when a crisis like this hits and people lose everything they have, “a person’s anger rules their actions and their thoughts.” When that anger takes over, the people will turn on each other and on their government. “They defy government, because the government is the one that took those freedoms and rights away.”

    The government knows this and they have prepared significant contingency plans for such an event.

    When it happens, it will be too late for those who did not have the foresight to prepare for it.

    • Do you have extra cash on hand in case the banks shut down?
    • Have you acquired a secondary mechanism of exchange such as gold or silver in case your funds become inaccessible?
    • Do you have an emergency food stockpile in case bank merchant systems go down and grocery stores are unable to process transactions?
    • Are you prepared to shelter in place so as to avoid the looting, violence, and government detentions that will be happening in your local neighborhood?
    • Are you prepared to defend yourself if the violence spreads to your front door?

    Now is the time to be ready. The government is. You should be too.

        I don’t see or understand the endgame from the government or the banker’s point of view. I see the short-term, but not the long-term.

        If banks were given permission by the government to seize depositor’s money, then they’d have to expect and prepare for protests. These protests have a rather high probability of continued violence and unrest.

        If widespread and extended, then this would result in less revenue to both the government and the banks. Not to mention that it would cost quite a bit to respond to the protests and unrest.

        Can someone explain a bit further what the government political leaders’ and the banking leaders’ (such as the Fed Reserve) endgame is in view of justified civil unrest?

        • Unreconstructed Southron says:

          I seem to remember that happening before…to people called ‘serfs.’

          • Gods Creation says:

            The best we can hope for is that the “people” with “money” in the “bank” will properly direct their anger to ANY PERSON SERVING THE INTEREST OF THE CORP FOR PAY.

            If the People wish to take back their government, it will not be done by looting local businesses. It will be done by taking over the court houses, police stations, mayors offices and city halls, school boards, all legislative and administrative buildings for the State of corps., etc.

            Ask the Sheriff if they stand with or against We the People, and take them over if they wish to stand against, stand with them if they stand with us and throw them in a cell if they do not.

            Release ALL political prisoners (commercial offenders) from the cells so they can fight with us.

            MOST IMPORTANTLY… Take control of the communications offices first, local TV and Radio stations, cable outlets, internet service providers, and let every one of them know the time for them to choose a side is NOW, and that the price of selling out to corporate interest will be immediate death.

            Get the word of truth out locally. The globalist can not be beaten if the individual tries to fight the global war that is sought. We must fight the local battles, and win enough of them to send the globalist packing.

            Needless to say, if you are a bank executive, you will probably be executed and rightfully so if you aid and abet the theft of one lawful nickel which is the only remnant of constitutional money left.

            You can mess with a lot of things, but the banksters know that once they openly steal TRILLIONS of dollars they will be targeted.

            Many “officials” are interested in Continuity Of Government. The people must make them consider whether or not the corp they represent should continue. And if they choose to work to assist in its continuity, they should be eliminated as they are hopelessly lost anyway.

                  John Q,

                  Travelling around middle America is the most frightening experience I’ve had in years. The utter narcissism, venal superficiality, mental, spiritual and moral sloth is simply unfathomable. Its all about having the most ease, comfort and hedonism possible. The citizens are a ground up, grass roots criminal syndicate, topped by the demented, corrupt government who very realistically mirrors the gluttonous, selfish constituency who votes them into power.
                  Ever try to talk to the Average Jane & Joe Doe about what is REALLY behind the downfall of their once-great nation?
                  Prepare to have them call the cops on you if you do!?

                  All across our land, even in the nowhere-outback shopping malls of lesser towns and rural capitals- you find several “Israeli cosmetic kiosks” equipped with Mossad Dancing Israelis, selling their ‘artwork’ and artiface to the mongoloid public.
                  Remember a CIA guy named Garrow claiming Mossad “discovered” a plan “by Arab terrorists/ISIS” to blow up 700 shopping malls?
                  Consider these IDF perfume salesmen the equivalent to the Israeli art students in the days prepping up to 911.
                  People: watch your malls of every size and see if any of these Zionist Dudevan ‘artists’ are plying their trade and don’t let them pull off this mall false flag.

            • DaisyK says:

              I don’t see how the BANK can take your money unless you have a LOT of money in the bank. We are protected by FDIC insurance for about $100k. If the bank goes bust, the FDIC will take over and either find another bank to take over the assets and liabilities of the failed bank, or they will just print some money and pay us each up to $100k or however much we had in the failed bank.

              I could see how the government might impose a tax on savings. (We already have a tax on savings. I get about .1% interest per year, which is a lot less than inflation. The difference is a sort of tax.) But the dollar amount of principal should be safe.

              • Enki says:

                Go and look as how they took the money out of the depositor’s account in Cyprus in 2013.
                Your favorite bought and sold for Senator and congressman would vote for it, and they would put a limit on your account withdrawal too, Get it?

              • Cara says:

                FDIC does not cover bail-in seizure of your funds. They will be gone. This was looked at after the Cypress mess. And it was determined that seizure of the funds is a lawfull act(though it would never have been considered lawful or appropriate in the past.)

              • John W. says:

                You really believe that the FDIC has enough money to cover all those accounts? If so then you need to get out more often. They can cover maybe five cents on the dollar. The FDIC was meant for individual bank failures not a nation wide collapse.

              • Jimmy NoChit says:

                Like it or not, when you deposit money in a bank, you are in practice loaning the bank your money. In return they pay you interest (all be it a tiny amount). This makes you a creditor to the bank, and an unsecured creditor at that.
                As to the FDIC insurance (it is for up to $250K now), the funds available to the FDIC are a tiny fraction of the amount of deposits in this country. In the event of a massive failure, they haven’t got enough funds to make good on even 10% of the deposits in the US. And getting any US bank to take over the liabilities of a failed bank will be quite the undertaking, because there just are not any US banks that are, by GAAP standards, technically solvent. They all depend on the liquidity of each other, when one can’t pay it’s bills, that causes it’s creditors to be unable to pay it’s bills and the dominoes fall very quickly.
                The Federal Reserve could print money (it has ‘printed’ nearly $3 Trillion since 2008) but that could lead to a loss in confidence in the dollar, which could lead to hyperinflation ala Wiermar Germany 1920’s style.

              • john says:

                The thing with the FDIC is they only have 1% of all money in the bank as a reserve. It is like an insurance policy, it isn’t designed for everyone to claim at once, it is designed for small groups to claim at a time. So if this happens there is no way the FDIC could really help. I guess they could give everyone 1% of their money back. And they are changing the wording on what they classify depositors. We are now being called unsecured creditors, so I am not even sure if the FDIC protection includes us anymore. Remember, banks are in it for the money not for our benefit. Here is the best example I can give on the nature of the bank. In 2012 they collected 32 billion in overdraft fees, meaning they took 32 billion from people who didn’t have any money.

              • TPSnodgrass says:

                Actually, Daisy K, we are allegedly “protected” by the FDIC, to the tune of $225,000.00 per account, unless YOU read the fine print on the FDIC program’s contract with the depositor. Of course your ban won’t tell you, but the FDIC is UNDER-INSURED by at least many billions of dollars, so there is NO money to insure the individual depositor at all. Who do you think is going to be making up the difference?
                We taxpayers, and we depositors through Cyprus-style hair-cuts in our deposits.
                Read the fine print in the FDIC regulations before “relying” on FDIC “insurance”, there’s NO money in that insurance pool at all, and you can thank Congress for that.

            • Stewie says:

              Can we spare the bank tellers?

              I walked into my local bank today to see a poster sticky-taped onto the cashier’s side of the glass, with the printed side facing bank customers. The poster was an appeal for people to donate money to reconstruct Gaza and help its injured, hungry and homeless citizens. Not approved by the bank’s head office: but the tellers wanted the poster to be there, so they put it up anyway.

              The jewish Wall Street banking heads are pure evil, and the big bank executives deserve to rot in hell – but the ordinary, low-income bank employees are far from psychopathic.

        • sixpack says:

          What I can’t understand is, as soon as people see it happening, I predict everyone who can, removing what’s left of their money from the banks, Direct Deposits stopped, and any other way people can avoid putting one dime in a bank.

          Personally, I’ll stop direct deposit immediately and my landlord will take my check, giving me the surplus in cash. I only have about $120 after my rent anyway.

          They can kiss my poor white ass. They might get me once, but only one.

          • the renegade braveheart says:

            Howdy, sixpack. I already keep most of my cash in a safe at home. Only have enough in the bank for one bill and that’s it. Unfortunately, my company imposed direct deposit on us 2 years ago. Never had any trouble with it yet, maybe I’m just lucky. But if it happens, you can bank [PUN INTENDED} on braveheart raising hell with someone. They can kiss my white ass also.

            • Warchild Dammit! says:

              Brave,assume as soon as deposited you remove most of the cash,I buy online a bit and thus need a debit card and account but keep in what I need to pay along with a limited amount willing to lose(under 1000.00),add if needed for big online purchase.I still have about 10 % of funds in market,tis doing well and just one of different eggs and thus willing to take some risk.

              • the renegade braveheart says:

                Warchild, I have a debit card but try to use it as little as possible. I have done some online buying in the past, but had some trouble with that once, so now I try to do all of my purchasing locally. Online shopping does have its own risks.

                • Warchild Dammit! says:

                  Online shopping for me has really always worked well,including huge case lots a few friends go in on.The other great thing about on line is no sales tax(not a N.H. issue) but you live with a sales tax and sick of supporting your state govt. helps,you love your state govt. am sure they have a donation process in place!

            • Cara says:

              I also am required to use payroll direct deposit. But I am looking into moving it to a unaffiliated Credit Union. If the banks fail the credit unions should not be involved in their bail-in. However in Cypress the banks/government did not just take funds once. They continued a “tax” of EACH deposit made afterwards. You could always look at the bright side: you won’t have to fill out any IRS forms to get this money taken from you.

              Fact: The US Constitution allows taxes on Capital gains only and specifically forbids taxes on wages as they are an exchange of labor for pay.

          • Warlokke says:

            However, for the folks relying on social security checks, unemployment checks, disability checks, veteran pensions, VA compensation, etc., the government has all ready made direct deposit nearly mandatory – and it will be mandatory when this comes to pass. Then all they need to do is have the bank give you a 15% haircut off anything that gets deposited electronically into your account. Just think about the impact of that.

            • fishandmud says:

              Small credit unions or small local banks is the only way to go if you have to use a bank. The artical reads ” systemically important banks “. NOT all banks. Move your money or direct deposits right now.

          • John Q. Public says:

            A lawsuit may expose “the extent to which the government has hypocritically played fast and loose with classified information while simultaneously sending journalists and whistleblowers to jail over allegations that they have done the same.”

          • Mountain Trekker says:

            I did not have Direct Deposit until I was forced to, and then I went to another Bank and opened an account for direct deposit. On payday I write a check and move my money to my old account at my old bank where the Feds don’t have access. Pay all my bills with cash and make all local purchases with cash, except for bills that I have to mail in, then I write a check. Use Cash when possible, debit and credit cards are just like direct depoist they are a funnel to a cashless society. Trekker Out.

        • Swinging on a star says:

          My question is, how many on this site actually keep a substantial amount of money in any bank? This is sort of preaching to the choir. We all know this scenario is a real possibility, so none of this is really earth shattering news.

          We hear constantly now about how great the economy is doing and consumer confidence is up, I personally don’t believe a word of it, just look around, people are getting desperate. Part time jobs, no real prospects, the middle class is getting squashed, top down, bottom up.

          • the renegade braveheart says:

            Swinging on a star, I agree. I also see the exact opposite taking place where I live. Middle class is being reduced, shopping malls 50 to 85% empty in some parts of town, more people joining the ‘gimme dat’ crowd every month. What few jobs are left are dead-end jobs with no prospects.

          • Scavenger says:

            If people’s money gets stolen by the banks, there has to be some strategic endgame in mind that they’re thinking of. What could it be when faced with civil unrest? They’d have to anticipate the costly backlash that would negate much of their revenue stream.

            • Well , what they think is their end game might not be how we let it go down
              Bet that’s something they might be to arrogant to realize

                Of course this is all by design. The more people Banks can get to default on secured loans, like to repo your home or car and give you back pennies on the dollar of your actual equity after they sell your assets at fire sale prices to their buddies. Plus they Destroy your credit so they can charge you more.

                I saw a lot of this in my neighborhood where people would default on their home loans, kicked out of their homes in a foreclosure, then the bank hires some bogus shill property appraiser to value it real low, and a shill real estate agent to list the house which nobody can ever get a hold of to put an offer on. Meanwhile their Bank buddy gets an inside deal on the property, and re-lists it once they take ownership, for a quick flip $60K+ Profit. And by law the bank was to compensate the last owner for the difference of the sale and what they owned in equity. But of course under this shady bank scam the first owner with nothing in equity, or charged in Collection and Foreclosure Atty fees. Its a big Bank Robbery Rip Off.

              Their “revenue stream” comes directly from a printing press and the gullibility of the People who take what it prints as money.

              The plan is to create a Chinese Style communist government and kill off as many dissenters as possible before and while installing it. Mao, Hitler, Stalin, etc., all were trial runs for the destruction of the LAST free state, the US of A.

              Fortunately, you can remain free if you can take care of, or better yet trust God to HELP YOU provide for all of your own needs, and protect what you have been blessed with.

              God will help the individual family to make it if they are true to their faith, but will not lift a hand to help any part of the collective that is His enemy.

                  You must either define YOUR faith and live it, or join those who refuse to define and live in any faith which is the collective of corp “persons” who know government as their god.

                  Anyone can find their faith at any time, with the prerequisite being that you are looking for it and accepting when it is found.

                  It has been said there are no atheists in a foxhole. Perhaps that is where your faith will ultimately be found. In the end, there will be only two. You and your maker. Only one will sit in judgment.

          Another Bank scam called – Rehypothecation

          Definition of ‘Rehypothecation’
          The practice by banks and brokers of using, for their own purposes, assets that have been posted as collateral by their clients. Clients who permit rehypothecation of their collateral may be compensated either through a lower cost of borrowing or a rebate on fees. READ YOUR TERMS OF AGREEMENT WHEN YOU DEPOSIT MONEY IN BANKS. YOU MAY BE AGREEING TO ALLOW THE BANK TO USE YOUR DEPOSITS /BASICALLY CO-MINGLING OF FUNDS FOR ANY PURPOSE THEY CHOOSE.

          Investopedia explains ‘Rehypothecation’
          In a typical example of rehypothecation, securities that have been posted with a prime brokerage as collateral by a hedge fund are used by the brokerage to back its own transactions and trades. While rehypothecation was a common practice until 2007, hedge funds became much more wary about it in the wake of the Lehman Brothers collapse and subsequent credit crunch in 2008-09.

          • DanceUntilWeDie says:

            You can actually have more than $250K in secured deposits. I ran this by my banker wife (small community bank, that is) and she said:

            “An unsecured deposit would be an uninsured deposit. That means that it’s a deposit in excess of the $250k that is protected by the FDIC Insurance rules. It’s actually more than $250k per depositor … a single person can actually get up to $850k in deposit insurance if they structure their accounts correctly (there are different categories of insurance, each category carries a $250k limit … it’s sort of complicated to explain). The process of having excess funds secured by a bond is actually already happening and, in some cases, required. Government and Municipal funds that exceed $250k MUST be secured by a bank-purchased AAA rated bond. We call this “Pledging”. Essentially, the bank owns the bond but ‘pledges’ to pay proceeds of the sale of that bond to the municipality or government entity via a contract in the event of bank failure. Businesses can have this, too … but it’s voluntary for them. And, consumers can participate in deposit-sharing agreements where they put all of their money in a single bank, and that bank then turns around and ‘sells’ deposits that exceed $250k to other banks. The consumer has to direct this activity and it’s all governed by contract. And it’s only allowed for time-deposits (CD’s) where the bank requires 7 days advance notice before the funds can be withdrawn.”

            Sure wish I had the problem of having more money than I could secure at a single bank…

            • DanceUntilWeDie says:

              Of course the notion of “secured” is questionable as the FDIC could issue an emergency resolution to decrease the $250K down to say, $10K, and suddenly that $240K is now unsecured and can be covered by a bond. After all, the FDIC passed an emergency resolution to temporarily increase it to $250k from $100k back in 2009, and then Dodd-Frank made it permanent. Nothing to say it can’t go the other way.

          The Hedge Funds Pension Funds, and money market funds who would lose 60% or more in a Crash that required Bail-Ins; who are also the stock owners of the banks could lose their equity in the banks and the bank stock rolled up and new stock could be issued to new investors.

          Bail-outs and QE have proven quite effective in re-capitalizing the banks and maintaining their liquidity.

          “If widespread and extended, then this would result in less revenue to both the government and the banks. Not to mention that it would cost quite a bit to respond to the protests and unrest.

          “Can someone explain a bit further what the government political leaders’ and the banking leaders’ (such as the Fed Reserve) endgame is in view of justified civil unrest?”

          As the article says above, it would appear that the government could very well be preparing for expected violence that would accompany an economic breakdown triggered by federal confiscation of personal banking wealth. Many people think that a “Hunger Games” or a “World Made by Hand” scenario could ensue.

          On a long term basis, it simply does not make sense that the rich and powerful elites would risk losing everything by scheduling such a trigger event and breaking American society probably irreparably. After all, they have most of the money anyhow, and if there is to be a taking of money, than that taking would happen in the accounts with the highest balances. The Joe Schmoes of the country, who have a thousand dollars here and there, would be greatly inconvenienced by that possible taking, but that’s not where the real money is.

          There is no pragmatic or other justifiable reason, other than the re-institution of a slave based economic sytem, for there to be a such an endgame as you wonder about.

          It cannot be that there is an endgame which would include the re-institution of a slave based economy, this time without discrimination on the basis of race or creed or orientation.

          I did read the speech in its entirety. Rather than create manufacturing jobs, which are the only basis for widespread wealth, the speech proposes a continuation ofits dependence on interest rates alone, to stabilize the economy.

          This “bail-in” system simply cannot reverse the recent economic trends, and will be soundly rejected by those who have the most money at risk of being “bailed-in”. The only “tool” that the Fed has is its usual dependence on setting interest rates. Perhaps some of the more sensible provisions of Dodd-Frank will ensure that the banking system acts more responsibly in the future.

      10 George Orwell Quotes That Predicted Life In 2014 America
      ————————————————————————————
      1) “In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.”

      2) “All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.”

      3) “War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it.”

      4) “The very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world. Lies will pass into history.”

      5) “In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

      6) “Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.”

      7) “In real life it is always the anvil that breaks the hammer…”

      8) “The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.”

      9) “Threats to freedom of speech, writing and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen.”

      10) “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.”

        Here is a list to share with friends/relatives you may see over the Labor Day weekend that tell you they CAN’T AFFORD to be prepared.

        After reading scores of threads of people asking how to get started prepping, having to “sneak” prepping from their spouse or “don’t have the money” to prep, I thought I would put together a thread that would cover each.

        The goal of this thread is to demonstrate that prepping can be done on the cheap for about $ 5.00 per week. I do not think that I know anyone who could not spare five bucks per week to invest in the ability to feed yourself and your family in the event of being affected by some form of disaster.

        For just $ 5.00 +/- you can buy the following storable things:

        FOOD ITEMS
        •Five packages of Idahoan instant potatoes (flavored)

            They can’t tell us what the value is “that we place on those PMs”, however; If the gov declares them illegal for use in place of the NWO money, then the value of stockpiles of such PMs has lost much of it’s value except for bartering with folks that somehow feel they are of some value or use to them at a later date.

        amen to that, Navy Vet.

        ” Not that you’re ever done. It’s a constant, evolving plan for survival in the event of catastrophe.”

        We live by that idea, that we are never really done prepping. Never too much rice and beans sealed up in clear glass containers with “metal” lids. Metal lids very important unless enclosed in larger metal container or completely sealed area.

        Example: We buy cornmeal in a bulk 25 lb bag. We put all but what we are going to use out of into glass containers with metal lids and tuck away in a dark cool place. The gallon jar we keep on a shelf in the kitchen to use out of, has a plastic lid. This is at the retreat shack/cabin where we plan to bugout, so it is in the woods.

        Last week I got the cornmeal jar down to get some out for frying up some fish and low and behold a damn mouse had crawled up the side of the gallon jar and gnawed a small hole in the plastic lid. Luckily he hadn’t chewed long enough to climb in, but it opened the way for a couple piss ants that were already dead. Lesson learned.

        Anyways, we buy what we can, and have been for the past five or so years on a fixed income.

        We have been wanting another solar panel or a wind generator so we have been saving a little at a time.
        Last week we found a portable 30 watt solar panel on sale at a third off and had a discount coupon for twenty bucks, so now another usable prep item at a good price, has made it to the retreat.

        The wind generator will have to be on hold for a year, if we have that long.

      When ‘money’ is no good, this will help….

      A 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud man, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with his hair fashionably coifed and shaved perfectly, even though he is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today. His wife of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, he smiled sweetly when told his room was ready.

      As he maneuvered his walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of his tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on his window.

      “I love it,” he stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy.

      “Mr. Jones, you haven’t seen the room; just wait.”

      “That doesn’t have anything to do with it,” he replied.

      “Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged … it’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it. “It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do.

      Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open, I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away. Just for this time in my life.

      Old age is like a bank account. You withdraw from what you’ve put in.

      So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories! Thank you for your part in filling my Memory bank. I am still depositing.” Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

      1. Free your heart from hatred.
      2. Free your mind from worries.
      3. Live simply.
      4. Give more.
      5. Expect less.

        Heck, our County and City governments here ignore the people. We had a meeting with 360 residents and the City and County officials basically took control of the meeting and refused to make any germane discussion of the issues the citizens raised.

        In reference to the above, the similarity of bail-in to Great Depression is spooky. The banks basically just took from the people. I was told by one born in the 1918 that banks simply took people’s farms in the GD. The banks were closed to withdrawals and even if you had money in the bank would take your farm and not let you withdraw the money to pay.

          To dontbeanidiot. Heard the same account from my dear Granny who was born in 1900 and passed away in 2004 (with, btw, full mental function up until 3 weeks before her death due to a stroke). She had what we call a “Depression Era mentality”. She was a very hospitable woman with a bright and sunny disposition BUT she NEVER trusted banks. On this one point she was like a hawk. Very suspicious of their motives and actions. Early in the Great Depression, when the banks closed their doors and your money all but disappeared overnight, her parents’ ranch in Montana became jeopardized in the process. When this all became apparent she later went to the bank manager and tried to get him to apply the hard earned (she was a teacher in a one room schoolhouse) funds that were destroyed in her account and apply those figures to her parents’ mortgage. As you can guess, her proposal was met with a flat NO! These family members were from pioneer stock who had come from the difficulties in Ireland to a hard way of life ranching in Montana. Through their drive and hard work they prevailed, no thanks to the banking and governmental criminals. Anyhow, lesson learned. I have never forgotten what she had to say about this. As a final “one fingered salute” she lived long enough to draw out all the funds the government extorted from her in the form of Social Security deductions plus any that her family had paid into and didn’t live long enough to collect (she worked until she was 68 years old and would have worked longer but had to retire to care for my Grandfather in his final years). Learned a lot of wisdom from that dear lady and still miss her sorely to this day.

      If you need to forsee the political future of America, look no further than your neighbour up north in pinko commie Canada. Famous author George Orwell could not have foreseen that the Toronto District School Board would read the content of students’ and staff members emails, file transfers, and live chats from the social media under the disguise of preventing cyberbullying and libel of teachers, mainly female teachers.

      A parent claimed that the surveillance has infringed the privacy rights of Canadian citizens, yet the double standard is when the Toronto Star files Freedom of Information requests about questionable conduct of key TDSB management, the TDSB and Ontario College of Teachers assert their rights to privacy.

      Like a nightmare straight out of George Orwell’s 1984, the social media team of the Toronto District School Board is tracking students’ mobile phones in a few high schools in Toronto because a select number of male and female teachers are accusing the students of slandering their names over accusations of inappropriate sex conduct with under aged students.

      Critics of the TDSB portrays a state in which the government school boards monitors and controls every aspect of students and teachers lives to the extent that even having a disloyal thought or accusing management of professional misconduct will be dealt with harsh penalties. Think of the story about a former whistleblower of the Ontario College of Teachers.

      We live in a world that George Orwell predicted in 1984 all thanks to the far left communists in the government school boards of Canada. The key mottos are Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength, and accusing female teachers of having sex with her students are misogyny and hate crimes against women.

      My strategy……not everyones cup of tea…

      1. Pay for everything using credit cards. Debt is unsecured. If SHTF, let them try and come get it.

      2. Get paid by physical check. No direct deposit. Banks will time their seizures to either th 15th or 30th of every month. Plus, if anything does happen, you can deposit that check into a different bank account.

      3. Have same bank as employer. This speeds up check clearing times.

      4. Deposit check between 1:00 and 2:00 pm. deposit should become available same day. plus, due the late time, crap will have already happened earlier in the morning if anything is going to happen.

      5. Pay credit cards same day. Do it online so a date certain is obtained.

      6. If you are fortunate enough to have anything left over, withdraw balance over the next few day(s). You can redeposit any amounts necessary next payday in order to cover credit card debt.

      Finally, Ive acceptedr the fact that the outrageous monthlly bank fees are just part of the base costs of living in america. It’s just like taxes.

      This strategy is he best way i can figure as to avoid getting caught up in any asset seizures. Imrealize it’s not everyone’s cup of tea though.

          I absolutely get what your saying. But then I thought about it a bit more (in my situation).

          They know how big my house is….so they know how much oil i should use (also have wood).
          They know how much electricity i use.
          They know how much water I use.
          They have a good idea how much it costs to feed the family.
          They know how much my mortgage is.

          Bottom line, they already know the minimum I have to make to cover my expenses. Putting that stuff on the cards doesnt break opsec. It however, forces them to keep this entire mess afloat cause if shit does hit the fan, they aint getting their cash.

      • Stan522 says:

        I thought of the same thing, that is to rack up huge credit card debt, then tell the bank to go stick their head up obama’s butt. However, the problem we face is the uncertainty of “when” the collapse will happen. I know everyone senses “soon”, but you just never know.

        The collapse of Rome took almost 200 years. It could be awhile……

      What is happening now needs to be seen in a “BIG PICTURE” view: “They”(the powers that be) are breaking YOUR TRUST that you have had, in the government. You have lost your trust in the Federal Gov’t, you are loosing your trust in local gov’t with all the excessive force that the police are using on you, soon you will not be able to trust that your $$ is safe in a bank. America is the only place on Earth where THE PEOPLE ARE IN CHARGE OF THE GOVERNMENT!!! But it hasn’t been that way for many years. Now, “They” are going to break the USA to its foundations & rebuild with a NEW WORLD ORDER. You are supposed to run from the old & embrace the NWO….like you Democrat BASTARDS did when you voted for OBAMA…TWICE!!!!

      I am just 1 man. What can I possibly do to stop the coming storm?? Really, nothing. Yet when EVIL comes to my doorstep, EVIL will perish!! Then I will hunt EVIL down & do my best(worst)to drive it from my ‘hood. I would hope that by then, others would be doing the same.

      I agreed to pay fees to keep my money in your bank. I do not agree that it is OK for your bank to seize my assets because of your need to raise capital. If you need to borrow money from me, we will discuss the interest rate and the terms of the loan. Any attempt by the bank to tell me that you own my money and you are allowed to confiscate it will result in a piece of hot lead in your butt. I am sure that you went to great lengths to manipulate the system, but I did not agree to those terms. I will agree to stand trial by a jury of my peers and not yours. It is time the honest citizens of this world took back their country, and this seems to be a good place to start.

    26. Poor Boy says:

      I have a hard time believing this will happen anytime soon. It may be in the cards for the future but not yet. The level of distrust of the banks and government at this time are pretty high even for the unaware sheeple.
      If the banks were to do this it would be the end of the economy IMHO. The people that have enough that the banks could somehow justify taking a haircut from would pull their money and the banks would still collapse from the loss of ground floor capitol.
      It wouldn’t take the “serfs” long to figure out that even though they can’t get a lot of cash out they can still open a credit union account and do a wire transfer of everything they have left the same day.
      This is how I got out of BOA. I tried to withdraw my full account and got the run around about why I needed my own money and the whole it will take a certain amount of time to make it happen. I went and opened an account with a credit union the same day I left the bank branch and did a wire transfer 5 minutes after opening the account. I had my money out by close of business the same day.
      If they try this now they won’t survive the backlash and will take most of the economy down with them. That could be the ultimate plan or that could be the extreme short-sightedness of the common average everyday banker today. Never can tell with TPTB, and that includes the bankers unfortunately. Unlike the people of Cypress, the people of the U.S. of A still have other options than the big banks.

        • Navy Vet says:

          Big difference between Cyprus and the USA. Cyprus doesn’t have a Second Amendment and citizens are required to be licensed to own a firearm. Citizens in Cyprus are permitted to own hand guns only with “special authorization”. Citizens in Cyprus are permitted to own semi automatic rifles only with “special authorization”. (Guess how often that happens). Cyprus military owns roughly three times the number of firearms as does the population and they are allowed fully automatic weapons in addition to semi auto handguns. The bulk of the firearm ownership by citizens in Cyprus is double barreled shotguns. It is estimated that 1/3 of the citizens of Cyprus own a firearm.

          The facts above are the primary reason that Cyprus was chosen to implement the bail in experiment in the EU.

          (Well that and that the EU wanted to confiscate some Russian gangster money deposited in the Cyprus banking system. Rumor has it that Cyprus bankers, with guns to their heads, escorted the Russian gangster money to airplanes that immediately to off to parts unknown over the weekend before the bail in took effect.)

      If someone that get’s their self into a financial bind walks into a bank and demands the bank’s money so they can recapitalize their self it’s a federal crime, a felony. When the banks do it it’s not. The only difference is the degree of scale.

      You can sheer a sheep many times but you can only skin it once.

      If the banks were to attempt a bail in, I’m sure I would be in good company with others that feel as though they’ve been skinned. The banks will never get a second chance to take my skin. For ever I will not see them as a necessary evil but as a felon that I will not let into my life.

If TPTB are price fixing currencies.,then that value can be anything they want it to be. So if an EMP does occur..then the value for that event will be whatever these guy’s say it is..kinda like China and the way they manipulate their currency…If BitCoin does become the worlds currency…it might end up being worthless…but I don’t know…I do know that it is the only form of currency that has no sovereign ties…be well Sgt Dale.

        The best way to hurt them is to have some disposable income handy. At some point they will have to offer a high interest rate to get depositors back. Put your risk money in there early and take advantage of their desperate needs. Just do all your real financial transactions outside of their system.

        When Jimmy Carter was president interest rates were high, you could buy a 15 year bond that paid a 15% interest rate. It was risky but those that did buy made a ton of money.

        The rule of 72 states basically that you take 72 and divide it by the interest you are earning and that’s how many years it take to double your investment. So a 10K investment turned into 80k at the end of 15 years.

        In 5 years you went from 10K to 20K
        the next 5 years you went from 20K to 40K
        the last five years you went from 40K to 80K

        Have some cash ready, if Obama is as good a Jimmy Carter there’s a retirement investment opportunity coming into play within the next couple of years.

If the lights go out, people won’t be able to get their money out either if it’s in 1s and 0s. I only keep enough in to pay the bills and keep the bank happy. Most of my money is outside the bank or in gold and silver. I might try to get as much as I can out if there’s an emergency. If the violence spreads to my front door, I likely won’t even be home to answer the door. At least that’s the plan.

      The Nail In The Petrodollar Coffin: Gazprom Begins Accepting Payment For Oil In Ruble, Yuan
      (from ZeroHedge site)

      According to Russia’s RIA Novosti, citing business daily Kommersant, Gazprom Neft has agreed to export 80,000 tons of oil from Novoportovskoye field in the Arctic; it will accept payment in rubles, and will also deliver oil via the Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean pipeline (ESPO), accepting payment in Chinese yuan for the transfers. Meaning Russia will export energy to either Europe or China, and receive payment in either Rubles or Yuan, in effect making the two currencies equivalent as far as the Eurasian axis is concerned, but most importantly, transact completely away from the US dollar thus, finally putin'(sic) in action the move for a Petrodollar-free world.

      Let’s think this thing out, okay? First of all, those of us that get money placed in a bank account, we have a choice, IF OBOZO TAKES THE MONEY OUT OF OUR ACCOUNT WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION, we don’t pay our bills, showing our creditors proof that funds WERE THERE, but for the fact that OBOZO took the funds illegally. So, your creditors can’t really do much about it.

      Another option is to have funds available to pay your bills. (That won’t be easy).

      The third option, is to purchase, as I did today, a couple thousand hollow-pointed, lead-oriented parts for a polymer receptor I have, to have available when there is a knock at the door…..

    40. I think if the banks took $10.00 from everybody with deposits there would be a massive whiplash response. The amount is not even the issue, but the action itself.

      It happened in Cyprus. The takers outnumber the makers. The makers, we know we can make more, but the takers? All out riots and mayhem.

      The Democrat sees the world like a big pie. If someone else gets a bigger slice, then that is less for them and everybody else.

      RIP you Democratic Party….

      Late 2010 Communist Party of the USA member C.J. Atkins called for his comrades to drop their “communist” label, so that they could work more effectively inside the Democrat Party.

      Soon thereafter Joe Sims, co-editor of the CPUSA publication Peoples World, acknowledged not only the collabration with the Democrats “will be an area of engagement for those wanting to make a difference, “but also that the Communists someday ‘capture’ the Democratic Party entirely.

      Sims warned, however, against disolving the CPUSA into the Democratic Party. Rather he advised his organization to remain a seperate entity, working both inside and outside the Democratic Party as circumstances required.

    48. Question…

      In Cyprus, they took a percentage of deposits over a certain amount. If they do that here, what would be a min. amount of deposit to take a percentage from?

      My reason for asking…

      If they will take a percentage (10-20%) of deposits over say, $10,000, would it really effect those that might riot? We know that the savings rate in America is low and a big percentage of the population have nothing really saved. Those that do have deposits that would be “raided,” would they really riot? Or would they pick up the phone and/or email their senators and curse their banks?

      I hope my question makes sense.

      Of course, we are going to have those that look for ANY excuse to riot and loot no matter what.

      Anyway, what do you think? I would be interested in reading your ideas.

      • I think you might see normal folks begin to riot at this act. Except we will not be burning down our own infrastructure per say, but the banks, the courthouses, the congress…

        You see all those things do not function anymore, so there is nothing to lose, simply removing the old to make way for the new.

        The real question is, what is the new? Will we rebuild and again be prosperous, or will we devolve into factions… likely religious and/or political factions, and repeat the process? Again, and again, and again.

        Why retirement accounts? Because you can’t strip them bare to prevent the confiscation, that’s why.

No exceptions. We now try to pay cash for everything even when we travel, yes, it’s a pain in the butt, but it allows us a bit lower profile and locatability should certain elements in society want to continue their political predation with physical predation.As much as you can, become your own bank, have “supplies” on hand for your needs, get it back from the grocery store, or wherever you can withdraw some from your accounts, you will appreciate this later.
