    In my last article, I outlined the deliberately engineered trend toward the forced “harmonization” of national economies and monetary policies, as well as the ultimate end goal of globalists: a single world currency system controlled by the International Monetary Fund and, by extension, global governance, which internationalists sometimes refer to in their more honest public moments as the “new world order.”

    The schematic for the new world order, according to the admissions of the internationalists, cannot possibly include the continued existence of U.S. geopolitical and economic dominance. The plan, in fact, requires the destabilization and reformation of America into a shell of its former glory. The most important element of this plan demands the removal of the U.S. dollar as the de facto world reserve currency, a change that would devastate our current financial structure.

    I outlined with undeniable evidence the reality that major governments, including the BRICS governments of the East, are fully on board with the globalist agenda. There is no way around it; the BRICS, including Russia and China, have openly called for a global monetary system centralized and dictated by the IMF using the SDR basket. This same plan was outlined decades ago in the Rothschild-owned magazine The Economist. We are witnessing that plan being implemented in front of our very eyes today.

    For the past couple of years, the current head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, has used the phrase “global economic reset” often in her speeches and interviews. There is some (deliberate) ambiguity to this notion, but after sitting through hours upon hours of her most boring and repetitive discussions in globalist think tanks such as the Council On Foreign Relations, the consistent message is pretty straightforward. If anyone can stand to listen to this woman’s carefully crafted prattle and well-vetted half-truths for more than five minutes, I suggest they watch this particular speech given in January at the CFR:

    Her message on the global economic reset is essentially this: “Collective” cooperation will not just be encouraged in the new order, it will be required — meaning, the collective cooperation of all nations toward the same geopolitical and economic framework. If this is not accomplished, great fiscal pain will be felt and “spillover” will result. Translation: Due to the forced interdependency of globalism, crisis in one country could cause a domino effect of crisis in other countries; therefore, all countries and their economic behavior must be managed by a central authority to prevent blundering governments or “rogue central banks” from upsetting the balance.

    It’s interesting how the IMF’s answer to the failings of globalization is MORE globalization. In other words, Lagarde would argue that while we are in the midst of an international system, we are not centralized enough for such a system to succeed.

    The IMF points out correctly that the economic situation around the world is not stable and could revert once again to the chaos of the initial 2008 crash. The Bank for International Settlements, the primary hub of central bank control, has also given numerous warnings this year on the potential for disaster, including in its latest quarterly report.

    The warnings of the BIS in particular should not be taken lightly (some analysts are indeed taking them lightly). The BIS knows exactly when financial disasters will erupt because it wrote the central bank policies that created those same events. For example, in 2007, the BIS released a warning that perfectly predicted the elements of the derivatives and credit crisis in 2008.

    What these globalist institutions will not tell you in a direct manner are the real causes and motivations behind the inevitable next stage in the ongoing destruction of the current economic system

    The global reset is not a “response” to the process of collapse we are trapped in today. No, the global reset as implemented by central banks and the BIS/IMF are the CAUSE of the collapse. The collapse is a tool, a flamethrower burning a great hole in the forest to make way for the foundations of the globalist Ziggurat to be built. As outlined in my last article, economic disaster serves the interests of elitists.

    When you look at these actions by the Federal Reserve and the U.S. government in particular, questions arise. Is it “stupidity” that is causing them to sabotage the golden goose? Is it hubris and greed? Their actions are clearly facilitating a program of incremental implosion, yet they continue to ignore the obvious. Why?

    The people who ask these questions are operating on a false assumption; they have assumed that the international bankers and the puppet politicians they control have any interest in protecting the longevity of the U.S. The fact is they do not. They have no loyalty whatsoever to the U.S. system, nor do they see the U.S. as “too big to fail.” This is utter nonsense to globalists. Rather, they see each nation and central bank as a piece in a game, much like chess. Some pieces have to be sacrificed in order to gain a better position on the board. This is all that the U.S., the Federal Reserve and even the dollar are to them: expendable pieces in a larger game.

    The U.S. is now experiencing the next stage of the great reset. Two pillars were put in place on top of an already existing pillar by the central banks in order to maintain a semblance of stability after the 2008 crash.  This faux stability appears to have been necessary in order to allow time for the conditioning of the masses towards greater acceptance of globalist initiatives, to ensure the debt slavery of future generations through the taxation of government generated long term debts, and to allow for internationalists to safely position their own assets.  The three pillars are now being systematically removed by the same central bankers. Why? I believe that they are simply ready to carry on with the next stage of the controlled demolition of the American structure as we know it.

    Bailouts And QE:  The First Pillar Removed

    The bailout bonanza was in part a direct intervention in the deflationary avalanche of the derivatives bubble, but also an indirect intervention in that it changed the psychological dynamics of the markets. As former Fed chairmans Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke have both hinted at in interviews and op-eds, one of the primary concerns of the central bank was the psychology behind higher stock prices.

    Stock prices could be propped up by the Fed itself through proxy buyers using the printing press. Or the Fed could inject billions, if not trillions, of dollars into banks and allow them to run wild, artificially boosting investment while doing nothing to solve the existing dilemma of negative fundamentals.  Beyond this, the markets began to move on the mere words or edicts of Fed officials as algo-computers and the general investment world placed bets on rhetoric rather than reality; a dynamic which is now ending.

    The bailouts also reanimated the cadavers of large corporations and banks, not just in the U.S. but in Europe, giving the illusion of life to the financial system while leaving Main Street to rot. In the meantime, quantitative easing measures provided a way to continue financing U.S. government debt at the expense of generations of taxpayers as numerous primary lenders began to abandon typical long-term bond purchases.

    Furthermore, oil markets appear to have been directly inflated by QE intervention. It is important to take note that oil prices remained extraordinarily high despite the continuous fall in global demand UNTIL the moment the Federal Reserve instituted the taper of QE3. Then, prices began to plunge.

    In a September 2013 article, I predicted that the Fed, despite all common sense and the claims of banks like Goldman Sachs, would indeed follow through with the taper: a removal of the first pillar levitating the U.S. system.

    I was, of course, called crazy at the time for this prediction by some people within the alternative economic community.

    “Why in the world” they asked, “would the Fed taper QE when they can simply print to infinity and kick the can down the road perpetually?” Again, these people do not understand that America is under scheduled demolition by the international banks; it is not being protected by them.

    The taper occurred in December of that year.

    Near Zero Interest Rates:  The Second Pillar Nearly Removed

    After the taper of QE, volatility not seen since 2008/2009 returned to the markets. And the public once again was reminded in sporadic moments that the recovery might not be real after all. Europe and Japan quickly stepped in with their own renewed stimulus measures, and Fed officials began using strategic media interviews to “hint” falsely that QE might return. Markets rallied, then fell dramatically, then rallied again, then fell again in a shocking manner. And this volatility has been the trend up until recently, when the question of the end of zero interest rate policy arose.

    Again, very few people have ever asked or demanded the Fed end QE or ZIRP. There was never any legitimate public pressure on the fed to remove these pillars. The investment world has been essentially addicted like heroin junkies to assured gains for three years.  The war cry of the investment world has been BTFD! (Buy the f’ing dip) for quite some time; investors have come to expect and demand inevitable central bank intervention and fiat driven stock market rallies.  Yet, the Fed is ending the party anyway.

    ZIRP is the only pillar left holding stocks in place. Without zero interest rates, and with even the most minor of .25 basis points added, cost-free overnight lending to banks and corporations will end. They will not be able to afford continued lending on the massive scale seen since 2009/2010. This means no more stock buybacks for dying companies like IBM or General Motors, among others. This means a considerable decline in the markets, declines which we have had a taste of in recent plunges in equities at the mere mention of interest rate increases.

    In August in an article entitled ‘Economic Crisis Goes Mainstream: What Happen’s Next?’, I wrote:

    “The Federal Reserve push for a rate hike will likely be determined before 2015 is over. Talk of a September increase in interest rates may be a ploy, and a last-minute decision to delay could be on the table. This tactic of edge-of-the-seat meetings and surprise delays was used during the QE taper scenario, which threw a lot of analysts off their guard and caused many to believe that a taper would never happen. Well, it did happen, just as a rate hike will happen, only slightly later than mainstream analysts expect.

    If a delay occurs, it will be short-lived, triggering a dead cat bounce in stocks, with rates increasing by December as dismal retail sales become undeniable leading into the Christmas season.”

    You can also read my analysis on the motivations behind a Fed rate hike as well as the theater surrounding their policies.

    The cat seems to have finished its bounce and stocks are returning to volatility.  Retail sales so far for Black Friday weekend (including Thanksgiving) have posted a staggering 10% drop with online sales below expectations. Chain Store sales have recently crashed 6.3% week over week.  Plunging freight rates and global shipping indicate a severe lack of global demand and a terrible sales season ahead.  Janet Yellen, ignoring all negative economic signals as predicted, has all but declared a rate hike a given by Dec. 16.

    I was, yet again, called crazy for this assertion by some at the time; and to be clear, I could still be wrong. The Fed could pull a fast one and not raise rates, though the rhetoric coming from the fed today almost guarantees they will take action. Not raising rates doesn’t match with their past habits; they seem to be following the timing of the taper model perfectly. The point is, despite common assumptions within the alternative media, the Fed is not “trapped” and can do whatever it wants, including killing the markets if it benefits the greater goal of a global economic authority. With the ZIRP pillar gone, expect even more violent swings in stocks and general uncertainty and panic among day-traders and the public.

    U.S. Dollar’s World Reserve Status:  The Third Pillar In Progress Of Removal

    I’ve been writing about the loss of the dollar’s reserve status since 2008. And as I have always said, the removal of this final pillar is a process, not an overnight affair. The BRICS nations have been positioning themselves for years — China since 2005, the rest of the BRICS since at least 2010.

    The delusion that some economic analysts have been under is that the BRICS were strategically vying for power by building their own unified banking institution in “opposition” to the IMF and the West. As I presented in my last article, this has proven to be completely false. They were in fact positioning to take their place as puppets within the new global paradigm taking shape. China has now joined the IMF’s SDR basket (as predicted); and Russia, along with the other BRICS, has openly called for the IMF to take control of the global monetary system.

    China’s inclusion, I believe, will hasten the loss of the dollar’s market share of reserve status over the next year, along with other factors. Saudi Arabia has also brought the idea of a depeg from the U.S. dollar into the mainstream discussion. This action, which mainstream economists are calling a possible Black Swan, would end the dollar’s petro-status and result in catastrophe for the U.S. economy. The removal of the final pillar is well underway.

    As I have stated in the past, the U.S. system as it stands does not necessarily deserve to survive, but then again, this does not mean that it should be sacrificed in order to breathe life into the monstrosity of global economic governance. Such a trade-off only serves the interests of a select group of elites, with the global reset ending in the mechanized multicultural suicide of sovereignty, leeching prosperity from the rest of us in the name of “collective progress.” Globalists want us to believe there is no other option but their leadership, and they will create any measure of chaos in order to convince us of their necessity.

      Does German elite Angela Merkel, Time Person of the year, know and believe that she’s a puppet? Or would she reject that notion that as a baptized German Lutheran that she’s no puppet to any globalist conspiracy?

    2. TEST says:

      A big part of the whole scam outlined above is built around the “scam” of global warming. “Scam” is the *exact* word used by Dr. Richard Lindzen, prof of atmospheric science at MIT, Dr. William Gray, generally considered the #1 hurricane forecaster in the world, and John Coleman co-founder of the Weather Channel.

      The point is, if you control energy, you control everything it touches which is… well…. *everything*** That is what is behind the BIG GREEN MONEY scam.

      In fact the actual presence of CO2 in the atmosphere is 390 ppm, or less than 0.04%, up from 320 ppm, or 0.032% 50 years ago. Of the remaining percentages, nitrogen amounts for 78%, oxygen 21%. Of the 1% that then remains, 90% of that is argon, with less than 4% of that 1% being carbon dioxide (these percentages exclude highly variable water vapor, which is usually around 1 – 4% of the atmosphere – and a much more major contributor to global warming, estimated at being 50-90% of the greenhouse effect). Of course the logarithmic effect of CO2 means each additional increase has less impact that the prior, same sized increase.

      Even more, about 96 to 97% of carbon dioxide comes from natural sources, such as animals, plant decay and volcanoes. , In fact, relative to volcanoes, former FDA investigator Dr. Arthur Evangelista, noted that the 2010 eruption of Eyafjallajokull in Iceland emitted, in four days, enough CO2 in four days to negate every single effort mankind made that year to reduce CO2. But this volcano was a piker compared to Mt. Pinatubo, which when it erupted in the Philippines in 1991 “spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in its entire 40 MILLION YEARS on earth.” And this doesn’t include that fact that, as he notes the “bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.”

          True eppe.

          @Test or anyone else that thinks CO2 is bad:

          People need to know or REMEMBER science…you know, what we were taught in school.
          Carbon dioxide. ..is necessary in life. It is what every person, animal, etc gives off. It then helps plants to give OXYGEN, something that living mammals and other things need in order to breathe.
          It is called life.
          For the little chickens running around, the world is not overpopulated. They are crowded in cities, but they need to spread out. How many vacant fields are empty? Lands? Country?
          There is still enough land for everyone, yet they try to teach us there are too many of us. Not true.
          But, there are too many bad evil greedy people who want it all. Control included.
          The earth goes through cycles. Nothing new. It repairs itself.
          But the industrial age did not help it. People need to find better ways of not tearing up what we have.
          CO2……necessary for life. Remember that. Without it, we would die.
          I can’t believe idiots actually think co2 is bad. o_O

      • Not only that but we as humans sequester much more carbon than we use in oil. We put untold billions of tons into the ground as garbage and as our numbers grow many millions of tons are sequestered in our homes, furniture, pets, goods and even our bodies.

        When the liberals start calling for climate change denier to be arrested, that means the lie is about to fall apart. If Trump gets elected, I suspect the global warming lie will be tossed out the window.

      • factchecker says:

        390ppm/320ppm = 1.21875. Almost a 22% increase. Small concentrations are critical for many life factors. Your daily intake of iodine is 150 micrograms. That’s almost 1 part per billion by body weight. Go over that by a few factors and you’ll get toxic iodine poisoning, under it by a few factors and your screwed too.

        Where did you get the “logarithmic effect of CO2” BS? The IR opacity of the atmosphere is approximately linear with respect to CO2 concentration. It’s exactly analogous to the darkening of paint when adding a pigment. At low concentrations, more pigment -> more absorption.

        You are aware, of course, that the planet has been actively regulating the CO2 levels for millions of years.

        The basic mechanism (proposed and proved by James Lovelock) is that oceanic phytoplankton outgasses organometallic iodine compounds when the water temperature rises above 72F. Since iodine is water soluble and the mineral sources have been leached away, the rain forest growth rate is limited by iodine deficiency. The trees basically sit waiting for the iodine in monsoon rains to be able to grow. The ocean temperature effectively controls the rain forest growth rate.

        When the rain forest grows, CO2 is sequestered. There is less of an IR blanket on the planet, and the temperature drops, reducing iodine in the ocean’s vapor, and slowing the growth of the rainforest.

        So the 320ppm number is not some random number. It was arrived at, and mananged at this level, by a global feedback loop involving both the entire ocean and the rainforest. For the current brightness of the sun, the distance of earth from the sun, this is the optimum level to maintain the planet at the highest temperature just short of the phytoplankton mitochondrial stress temperature. It’s a living feedback loop and humans have the capability to stupidly mess with it at their ignorant peril.

        You can see all this and more, in Lovelock’s several books. A good one to check out is: Lovelock, James (2000) [1979]. Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth (3rd ed.). Oxford University Press. ISBN 0-19-286218-9

      Yesterday in the period of two hours I had four different people whom I know little make a comment along the lines of “something bad is coming”. Three of them said they are buying guns though they have never had the inclination to and the third said they would survive because of experience and their real concern is the SNAP card masses.

      It’s being orchestrated beautifully. TPTB are hitting us on multiple fronts to keep our heads spinning and our minds distracted trying to figure out how it’s going to blow.

      No matter which tactic wins out, work like Trojans getting you household in order. Become a master at the talents you have. Stock those things needed for your skill set. Encourage others to be prepared. Be wise about sharing your own preps and yet seek to enlighten others. More and more are ready to hear it and will be prompted to make decisions that will help them even if they aren’t totally prepared.

      Keep stocking and stacking and do not be distracted.

        • I know people who are starting to prep that never did before. One of my coworkers is 84 and when our 3rd person said he was trying to buy extra food and water “just in case” she said she would “rather die” than live through that. I said okay, but take your life early so you don’t steal from your daughter and grandson’s mouths before you go. She was shocked. She went out and bought seeds. Started buying extra groceries. You can never tell.

        • TEST says:

          I don’t come from a gun owning family. I now own several, and ALL of my siblings do now as well. I don’t think we are that uncommon in society today – seems more and more people are open to the pro-2nd Amendment argument and personal gun ownership. NBC (ok, sometimes I actually do read the leftist, lamestream media!) says “One-third of Americans reported owning a gun, ranging from 5.2 percent in Delaware to 61.7 percent in Alaska.”

          Thing is, I’m not sure how to count this. Is this out of a total population? If so, of course the under 21 crowd should be factored out, and the percentage increases quite a bit. Does the husband own a gun, but the wife not considered a gun owner? Yet here, the *family* is in a possession of a gun, and a home invasion, for example, would be met with full force, not 1/2 force because only the husband was the official gun owner.

        The Grumbling is starting to get louder and more often. I hear people talking about their fears and rising problems in our country. Yes there are many fronts from which SHTF can start.
        Once again I do suggest that people get some Load Bearing Gear with magazine pouches, to help take the fight to them. Yes, I may be a little out there. People are buying up the Military gear at the Flea Markets and the Army Navy store has many customers. Kevlar helmets are in style. ;0) Make sure all gear fits well. Is adjustable and take some wear and tear. Large enough to fit over heavy clothing in winter. Also an investment in soft body armor. Not 100% life saving but may give you the edge in some cases. Some is always better than none.

        My guess would be its gonna be a economic collapse due to the dollar loosening the world reserve status or perhaps the sheer amount of debt buckling the system.

Woodland Firestorms, Earthquakes, Blizzards, Floods, Droughts all the way to solar EMP’s. All these are minor compared to what lies ahead for the whole world. In one word, “Instability”.

        Instability in our food supply. Electrical supply, Our Water supply. The financial institutions are a mess and are major predators upon our society. Major corporations have shipped good jobs overseas for tax purposes aided by the never ending taxes on corporations and when that is not enough. More taxes on payroll. Household Hunger caused by unemployment/underemployment, lead to a government dependent society that grows to the point it can not be sustained. Medical Insurance are inadequate. Which can lead to racial wars or even civil war.

        Extending that into Foreign Policy and one can imagine at some point a limited exchange of tactical nuclear weapons. The rise in Islamic terrorism increases that threat.

        So you see it is not one specific threat but a multitude of threats that can come as one or can domino into a larger calamity with many problems at once.

        I have never before seen Our Nation and the world with so many hazards on the horizon.

        Hope that helps.

        Hola,
        #1: I would start with hunger. If the banks should have a Holiday and shut down; where and how would you get food after a 3 day shut-down? This would and will cause great difficulty for you and your family. Do you have somewhere to go for help? Family? Friends? Don’t forget, they have their own families to take of.
        #2: If you have an auto, do you have enough gas to get you where you need or want to go to get you and loved ones out of the chaos?
        #3: Small prep’s are still good prep’s.
        #4: If nothing ever happens……how blessed you will be. Even the smallest of do ahead of times can serve a lifeline for those whom we love.

        • I work mostly on the hunger issue because I am a gardener and cook. Still, I have also worked other areas. Put it off as long as possible sez I so I can be better prepared. The neighbors 3 dogs came over the other day and the biggest one started digging up my garden. I was mad! If circumstances were more dire I would be putting dog meat in my freezer.

        Very, very important post, Hola. And if we don’t cogently articulate our positions, we lose the culture, and we also lose people who might otherwise be open to joining us self-reliance types.

        So… what is “it?” Well, for example, Dr.Lawrence Kotlikoff, who served under Reagan in the Treasury, and is now at Boston Univ., stated recently that the total unfunded liabilities in the US is – if you count EVERYTHING that is promised but not funded – now at $222 trillion. As you talk with others, how do they think that will work out? Remember, there are three and ONLY three things you can do with debt of that size – print money, raise taxes, or cut services (or a combo) – there ARE no other choices available. And if you raise taxes, you kill business, and also cause people to vote with their feet, so that avenue has its limits.

        Google “This Time is Different” – a book by Reinhart and Rogoff. They document *centuries* of history, where – once debt to GDP gets to around 100%, there has NEVER in history been an outcome that wasn’t a disaster. One link on this is here http://www.nber.org/papers/w13882 but just google the authors and you’ll get a lot of info.

        So, what is “it?” Those two items are starters, just off the top of my head….

          Barack Obama’s Transformational Moment

          “President Barack Obama said he did not want just to be president but a “transformational president,…”

          “one must acknowledge how he has transformed both the presidency and America itself.

          Obama promised “to enlarge his use of presidential decrees and “findings” beyond anything done by presidents before him, such as appointing most of the Federal Trade Commission or the National Labor Relations Board without congressional approval.”

          Indeed, President Obama acted as if he were Chief Justice Obama as well as House Obama and Senate Obama, by invalidating laws or parts of law passed by Congress — such as parts of the immigration statutes and the new healthcare law, among many others.”

          “At home, Obama changed the eagle into an opportunistic vulture, scavenging off the working class, the young and the wealthy, without helping the poor and elderly.”

      And here is why this site (and others like it) is so important. All we can do is inform and educate. Hopefully information on justice an freedom we email out or post here – as long as we provide verifiable source links or unassailable logic – will get out into the ‘wild’ where the others will read it.

      Yes, the forces of truth, freedom and justice are down. They were down in 1939, too. Things were in a horrible state in England under King John before the Magna Carta, and later before John Wesley’s work. But, as the Bible says, let not he who puts on his armour boast as he who takes it off. Hitler learned that lesson, and so did the USSR. And the George Soros, no matter how hard he squeezes her neck, has not got the fat lady to sing yet. Tho, yes, I do understand our she has warme up and waddled her socialist derriere onto the stage to great applause from the “Yes we can/Yes we have no bananas” chanters

      Maybe our Quixotic quest won’t be successful, maybe it will. I am reminded of the Battle of Midway (just google for full details). Basically the tide turned when a squadron of American planes, almost out of gas, was about to turn back. But they had courage and commitment, and gave it one more go just before they knew they would get back only on fumes, if that. By “chance” they spotted a Japanese destroyer returning to the main fleet after chasing a US sub. They followed it and attacked. The rest is history. Well, almost. Just before that, US torpedo planes had attacked, and almost all of them were blown out of the sky. Shot down… kinda like our blogging and emailing. However, the Zeros were forced to come down from high altitude where they had been, to help shoot these low flying torpedo planes down, and thus no one was left “up top” to protect the Japanese fleet when the US dive bombers showed up. The torpedo pilots down low went to their deaths, thinking they failed. Except that it was their courage and stick-to-it-ivness paved the way for the dive bomb attack, which in turn changed the battle, and in turn changed the war. Is your work, mon ami, or my work, going to be like those low flying torpedo bombers? We, like them, will never know, probably. But we can do our duty, that would make our forebears proud (I have an uncle who waded ashore at EVERY horrible battle in WWII in the Pacific, except Iwo. Tarawa, Saipan, Okinawa, you name it. What? And I should whine because someone hurts my feelings with a thumbs down????

      In a similar vein, the Bismark was attacked by British ***biplanes*** – the Fairey Swordfish. I.e., the most modern, powerful battleship in the world at the time, attacked by biplanes… no doubt, piloted by Snoopy from Peanuts. Pretty much a disaster… except one of the Swordfish torpedoes hit the Bismark’s rudder, and as it could not be repaired in a timely manner… to it sailed in a circle, and was a sitting duck, and sunk.

      So… just maybe our attempt at communicating truth and freedom is “nothing more” than those torpedo bomber pilots, or Fairey Swordfish pilots. But you just never know when Providence will get sick of the arrogance and proud, and use our puny little efforts to some greater good.

      We need to show up. The rest is up to God. Showing up in the old days meant risking our lives (think Braveheart). Today it just means people thinking you are an idiot and pressing DEL on your emails.

      As Luther said at another critical time in history, “Here I stand; I can do no other. So help me God.”

      Okay… now you press thumbs down or the DEL key!! 😉

          There IS a Fourth Choice Test…The us congress and usa prez etc can transfer current $$$$ Powers Back to US treas dept where it belongs, and where for somewheres like 130+ years prior it Remained while inbetween the 2nd and Now 3rd Fed Reserve Private jewish banksters controls.

          And if islamic nations can for so long now maintain a ZERO Usury/interst policy, and if germans could retake $$$ banking powers Back away from jewish banksters and also issue debt free and usury intrest free $$$$/Loans etc.

          This also CAN be done here in usa…For what else can aprox 300 individual members of the aprox dozen major global banksters families do, other than whine like a stuck swine pig if usa govnt finally told them banksters something akin to:…

          Ok thats It…NO more private owned usa banking. NO more usury intrest fees etc, and as for all them trillions mostly owed To said banksters…

          ALL private banksters can just Kiss our whitey asses, and blacks asses also, and YOU can absorb the Losses while You take next flight OUT!…Elsewize we also can JAIL said Banksters and every of the too many to count shabozz goy polititions allowing these massive scam swindles for past 100+ years.

          Forget for a moment ALL other WWII issues okay…Concentrate ONLY upon One issue of germany in that era…The Issue of Boot Out Banksters and Take Back all forms cash controls and issueing of it etc and do it DEBT and Intrest FREE totally…IE: You need 30 year home loan?…Ok if have good credit score and ability to repay PRINCIPAL Only, plus perhaps very tiny small fee per month for collections of loan paymnts, say around $10 per month fee plus 360-Equal monthly payments that shall equal entire amount first borrowed back 30 yrs ago once paid off.

          Thats what germany did…And if you can possibly for a moment ignore the other issues of WWII war etc…

          If say there was NO WWII at all…What and why would such systems be bad?

          Why not this:…A nation State exists Because of and FOR Its legit citizen peoples…a State bank is run BY state FOR main benifit OF states Legit citizenery.

          For withOUT said citizenery peoples there is NO state nation, NO banks. Ergo People should count as Number ONE Main concern…State nation/govnt Should do whats Good For said citizenery first and foremost, over and above ALL/ANY other peoples/nations/foriegn Policies/ wars for profit/wars of aggression/wars to promote “democracy” (some farcical spew eh) etc etc.

          So What if aprox 300 worlds wealthiest individual bankster family members Cry and Whine till cows come home when usa govnt on behalf of said legit citizenery (thats me and You folks)…Says “WE reject the entire amount and repudiate this always been fake fraud debt owed to You so Just Get the fuck OUT or face pissed off americans who are awake and fed up royally.”

          Yes that plan can get tweeked a bit here or there to suit US citizenery as to, whats Good for America and its American legit peoples?

          Yes of course Israel shall cry loudest since they recieve Mostest $$$$ and military aide etc…So shall 150 More nations cry loud and attempt to call especially Us white folks of usa, the greesiest types slanderous vile names they can conjur up in attempt to create whitey Guilt similar to how blacks does it via calls of rayssis!

          So..What?…What if we do NOT ever repay fraudulent immoral unethical and anti-american gains and profits?

          let them banskters do their much ballyhooed about “Return or Aliyah” to state of Israel and STAY there forever eh.

          They cried for 19 centuries for their “homeland” again…In 1948 it was handed to them free as can get.

          So? why they stil here and in EU states?…Go do fraud banking in israel and fund self for a change.

          if usa did this then within a few years time we’d have so much prosperity and all sorts goodness return to usa your head be spinning.

          Like I said if you for a moment ignore all Other aspects of WWII events…IF NO war occured and no nations joined forces to destroy what was the smartst and best whites of all europe then, By Now 2015 every german would probably be wealthy far beyond any dreams by just eliminating usury intrest and debt made money.

          yet this is one option nobody ever seems willing to discuss eh…Why Not? It worked very swell in germany untill england carpet bombed it 3 weeks straight to start war…But if no war happened, which will be the case for usa of NO war for simply canceling out private banksters etc as outlined here…it can and should be Option #4 and BEST option ever.

          No you probably will Never hear or read from any reagan apointees nor dem types so called experts of any such ideas…But they are ALL beholden To said jewish banksters so its to be expected right.

          Debt Free+usury/intrest Free+ jewish private banksters free= GOOD plan and Proven very swell by Germans 85 years ago untill war upset it, and entire worlds systems.

          so add NO phony wars to above and bingo we has a plan Houston!

    19. Fabian says:

      I don’t think your analysis is correct. First, about the reset; if the goal was to provoque a crisis so big that nations would freely give up their independence, they just had not to implement those pillars. The crisis was so deep that any government’s head was ready and willing to sell his wife’s dirty panties for a buck. The new crisis is not going to be bigger that the old one because the banks are ready. Second the dollar as reserve currency; I agree that China wants to be part of the club. But that will not hinder them to develop their own network and their own influence. Do you really think that they are going to cave in to the West like that? Room was made for China by reducing the weight of the UK, the EUR and Japan. The US lost one meager % of weight at the IMF in this operation. They still hold 47% I think of the total. Teaming up with the butlers they have an ample majority. Furthermore, to be a reserve currency, you need a wide, deep and liquid financial system. The US is the only country with such a system by far and above. The reign of the dollar is not over, make no mistakes about it. The next crisis will be bailed out by the IMF, OK. But it doesn’t mean that the dollar is going to be something like the EUR or the GBP.

      • jpl_texas says:

        I agree; I think the writer is hypothesizing mainly. I think you’re take is closer to reality. The IMF is allowing China a bigger place at the table for two reasons: (1) they are significantly leveraged with dollar obligation (T-bills), and (2) they don’t want to have to keep devaluing their currency in proportion with USD expansion. If the US wants to print more, they can do so and reduce their buying power, but this will now give China increased drawing rights on gold or other tangible assets (oil? strategic materials?). This protects China and others with SDR privileges from being exposed to exchange rate impacts due to US fiscal mismanagement. This can be done with a single world currency, but doesn’t have to be – although it should make the accounting a little easier.

        Why is it that every online writer of such money issues always bases all they state upon their belief that we must keep paying outrageous fed taxes for repayment of fraud debt gained by a tiny few folk via Usury intrest AND via Debt based cash?

        I do not ever recall any writers question as to why should we still even consider repayment and no matter what options they mention..None as yet ever says “why not have govnt of usa on behalf of its peoples issue cash debt and intrest free instead of a continuation of same type banking policys we now have”?

        Example: Many folks big hero Ron Paul…Always wants to audit fed ok but when has he ever stated besides go back to gold backed cash to ALSO Get RID Of private bank fed?

        if it goes back to gold backed or backed by grass clippings matters not as long as current type private banks with usury intrest remains staus quo eh.

        Don’t Ron Paul ever think of that?

        His methods just trades one bad private banksters systems for another new one if no usury changes happens.

        Whats best? Pay $100,000 per House in 30 yrears, OR for Same $100,000 house reply back $300,000 so jewish banksters can “earn” Via Usury scam that other extra $200,000 for their hard work labors? (final hard work by banksters is a joke!).

        Who will such a system be bad for?..ONE and ONLY One group…Banksters whom thrive on usury intrest and debt created cash THEY Loan to YOU but You already Own it since america as a nation IS owned BY You (and me too).

      “BRICS, including Russia and China, have openly called for a global monetary system centralized and dictated by the IMF using the SDR basket.”

      I’m afraid that’s not exactly accurate. BRICS was created to ensure a fair and equal (global) monetary system for everyone, instead of the corruption and cronyism of the IMF, where you only get help if you fall into line with the globalist agenda…everyone else gets nothing but broken economies and their national assets pillaged at bargain basement prices. (see Greece, Ukraine, Spain, Cyprus, Ireland, Italy, etc…)

      There is nothing wrong with having an honest global monetary system.

You seem to ignore how the IMF has been used to break so many countries, and the fact that EVERY SINGLE COUNTRY IN THE MIDDLE EAST NOW UNDER ATTACK had shunned the usurious IMF system.

      Sure, all countries, including Russia and China would like to work within the system, but they had to create BRICS because they can’t. At the behest of the United States, the world banks and subsidiaries cut off all VISA/MASTERCARD/EXPRESS/DINER’S CLUB/ETC. All of a sudden, hundreds of millions of people lost control of their money. The country’s leaders had nothing so say about it. Because there is only ONE GLOBAL BANKING SYSTEM, The U.S. can freeze people’s personal accounts, simply because they felt like it and the person wasn’t “cooperating” to their satisfaction.

      I’m sorry Mr. Smith, but BRICS is not a symptom of the push for the NWO, and the IMF IS PART OF THE PROBLEM, NOT THE SOLUTION. And I’ve got news for you Mr. Smith – the banking system isn’t your own personal propaganda tool either.

          I think they call it SWIFT…in reality, it should be called GRIFT.

          The very last section of the IMF charter is called “Final Provisions”. In it, you will find that any country with an IMF account (188 of em) is required to deposit gold into a US government account…NOT an IMF account. That right there tells you who owns the IMF. It’s a subsidiary of corporation UNITED STATES.

      I have waited and prepped and put my life on hold for 7 years …..now I’m starting my new business …..fuck this bullshit !

    25. Plan twice, prep once says:

      When economic crashes happen the whole economy does not go down all at once.

      When the housing market crashed in 07 many who could, kept paying their mortgages. Some economic sectors took months to be affected. The foreclosure process takes months and many people worked right through it with nary a problem.

      Then there are the millions who lost everything, some ended up homeless, unemployed, and hungry.

      Here we are at Christmas and my first Christmas wish is that people not over spend. Don’t run up those credit cards buying useless stuff. If you get a Christmas or end of the year bonus, pay off as much debt as you can. Try to become debt free.

      After this, my second Christmas wish is that people who can afford it, stock up on non perishable foods. If there is any kind of economic crash or other problem that affects food supplies, you need a stock of food for your family.

      Next my third Christmas wish is that people who legally can and believe they can rationally and safely use a firearm buy a reasonably concealable handgun, ammunition and quality holster for each likeminded family member. Even if your state will not issue you a permit to carry, you still can carry 24/7 while in your home or on your property, as well as you own business in most all states. During a severe crisis, the necessity to carry even if the law does not allow it may force a new reality on people, and likely at that point, the equipment may not be available or will be prohibitively expensive, or require you deal with dangerous black market people to buy it.

      Lastly just a Christmas prepper tip. At Christmas they sell packages of battery powered LED candles as decorations. I think these are a serious prepper goody. The lights take two AA batteries and will run for a week on NiMH rechargeable batteries. Yes I have a charger that will run off a solar panel as well as a generator. They have a built in timer that turns them on the same time every day based on when they were first energized, and turns them off six hours later. So a pair, one set for six to midnight and another for midnight to six am pretty much is an all night security light. In an after Christmas sale, a six pack that normally sells for $20 can be had for just a couple bucks. They give off just enough light to let you navigate a room or use a bathroom. They worked for us during the big storm, and they aren’t half bad as a holiday decoration.

      • I like the holiday candles on sale, I will pick up a couple after Christmas. I have 6 wall mounted solar lights and 6 nails to mount them on inside the house. There are enough to get me through my whole house. I normally leave them outside on my back patio, but when we lose power occasionally, I use them to give a tiny bit of illunimation.

        I have used alcohol gel fuel (sterno) to add a little warmth and light. I have a pan that sits over a sterno can and have cooked simple meals in it. A distiller to make alcohol is on my wish list and alcohol is an easy fuel. I don’t have enough sugar production yet, but will.

        Tea lights are also handy and I have a teapot that sits over a tealight. I use it in the winter for tea.

        Just bought a cast iron tea pot for use on a Japanese brazier. Look at old photographs of these underneath a low table with a quilt hanging over. 4 people could sit with their legs under the quilt and keep warm from a very tiny charcoal fire. Very efficient use of resources.

        Instead of a wood burning fireplace, I have an electric one. No heat or smoke exits the chimney. It’s backup is an alcohol gel fuel fire. No chimney smoke to draw arrention. It puts out a lot of heat that can cook.

          Rebecca, I love the way you think.

          Alcohol is a great cooking fuel. It’s odorless and produces a soft blue flame with little visible light. When stealth is required its my fuel of choice. It can be bought at any hardware store. It makes virtually no carbon monoxide and it burns hot.

          If I was the last house on the street with a closet full of canned food, I would not want neighbors to know I was heating it up. Alcohol fueled cooking would do the job.

          There are YouTube videos on how to make an alcohol cook stove from a couple of tin cans. I suspect it time to build and test one. I could just buy an Alcohol cook stove from Amazon, but where’s the challenge there?

          Last tip, if the SHTF, leave an old bottle of cheap vodka that was refilled with methanol denatured alcohol on the kitchen table, for any marauders that might ever stop by for a visit to enjoy. By morning they’ll all be quite blind. The juice from some beledonna berries added in, may improve its effect.

          Re: Alcohol for emergency heat. When I was young and poor and my car needed fixing in 18 degree weather. I had been working as long as I could stand in the garage. My hands were killing me, as I warmed them in my armpits, lying on a creeper on the floor I spied a bottle of dry gas, yup alcohol, on the shelf. I moved all flammables out of the garage, flipped an aluminum hubcap over into an old tire rim, dumped in the bottle of dry gas, and lit it. It burned for about five minutes. The temperature in the garage jumped to about 40 degrees. I went back to work. Thirty minutes later I burned another bottle of dry-gas, I had a 2.99 six pack and it seemed a bargain. A bit later the car was fixed, so I could go to work in the morning. Huge difference between 18 and 40 degrees.

          Point of that silly story, I have a lot of respect for alcohol as a fuel.

          At that time yeah it seemed to me to be a matter of survival.

          • Totally get the difference between 18 and 40 degrees. I love the methanol in a vodka bottle I just wrote it on my list. I will find a plan for making an alcohol stove. I love rocket stoves but cooking outside seems dangerous. I have 5 acres of forest and enough wood to run a rocket stove from here to eternity. I want my small earth bermed house with south windows. Earth temp here is 50 degrees, positively balmy. I am building top bar bee hives and rabbit hutches this winter. Stay safe!

            • Plan twice, prep once says:

              Nice plan on the bees. I saw on your site you had some pallets. They’d make great hives.

              For a passive solar house, make sure you have 3 foot eaves, so the sun doesn’t cook you in the summer.

              • I have been reading on partially underground houses this week. The weather has been too ferocious to start top bar hives, maybe next week. Definitely before spring. I started some hard cider! My first time. I already smell a faint alcohol odor so maybe this will work. I want to try wine also. I am using 2 gallon glass containers, the big ones are too heavy.

      The first thing to know is that we have been taught how and what to think, ESPECIALLY regarding what is valuable and important.

      If they want a war, and no one came… think about it.

      Gold and silver can be made “illegal”, do not consider that valuable, that is their value system.

      Revise your value system and morality. The key is in the values of our founding fathers, they were sovereign and free.

      Do not participate in their systems unless you absolutely have to.

      Make yourself independent and help others to the same, if you need nothing from the system, then it has no control over you. Power, food, water etc. The most preparation is between your ears, how you think. If you think right then you will react different. Let go of “valuables”, it’s not worth it, that is what we are controlled by.

      Being armed is extremely important, however don’t allow them to start a war for you against your own, like they did before, only they benefit.

        In a major crash many things become Illegal, if the government try’s to ban gold and silver they will become all the more valuable.

        Under bans black markets flourish. My state has very tough gun laws, as a result it has one of the biggest black markets in America that trades guns.

        When this governments fiat currency fails, and it is, gold, silver, food and necessities will become the only real currency. Black markets may become the only open market in town.

        Yes, the government will have its green zones, they will be secure and supplied, and they will deny that problems exist. Outside those green zones, life will be hard and dangerous. Think “Hunger Games” hard. Think people going hungry, think children with malnutrition.

        I travel around the Washington beltway periodically. It’s wonderful there. They are building like crazy. Lots of jobs, lots of growing business. Drive just 40 minutes in any direction and you start to see borded up buildings, vacant stores and businesses. America is starting to look so much like the “Hunger Games” it’s frightening.

      • I agree. I am working every day toward independent living. I measure success by how few dollars I need each month. I am close to zero debt. I garden. I want as few interactions with the machine as I can manage.

    27. Fanie says:

      The systems we are controlled by are –

      Monitory – it was made our value system, money is everything, your life revolves around “what/how much” you have.

      Politics and media and education – this is how we get programmed to the extent that we live in a false reality, nothing is as it seems, to waste our lives learning what no one wants to learn, and what no one needs to know. Proletarians.

      Religion (sorry) – it’s purpose is to control emotionally and morally and make submissive to authority, it is man made, ok, listen to Jordan Maxwell and many others. “Religion” in itself means that their god has not been found yet. Our founding fathers were not religious, the knew there is a Creator.

      The Zionists are doing all they can to prop up the fiat $USD and they are going to write off a bit of the debt if the USA helps Israel to steel land from Syria.

      Well the plan seem to be falling to bits because Russia is taking out ISIS and few people now beleive the impossible 9-11 offical story so they will just have to rely on plan old greed and force.

      This is why Wall Street can borrow money at zero percent interest and main street is having to pay about 5% and they need to take your guns because americans are going to be mighty pissed off when they see these bankers have pissed there pensions up the wall.

      Yes trouble is coming, forget the bits of green back paper and decide if you want a full on nuclear war when someone takes on the zionists or want to sit back and never have to make a interest payment to the banks ever again for the property you are buying !

      Hate to break it to you folks but you need food, water and a roof over your head but you don’t need funny money and you don’t need to die because of some rich greedy old bastard with a duel passport has crashed his own system.

      Rome does not need to burn if you all start to man up and stand up.

      Jail the elites and the bankers, go after them, don’t sit idly by while they lead us around by the nose to our doom. They are sick and vile, utterly corrupt and full of themselves. Arouse and fight before it’s too late! “Stop swallowing the overblown scaremongering of the government and its corporate media cronies. Stop letting them use hysteria over small menaces to drive you into the arms of tyranny, which is the greatest menace of all. Overthrow the reign of terror the State has installed over your mind.”

      Luke 12:36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.
