Who appointed this guy Chief A$$HoLe?
But be careful what you wish for: what we may get could be worse than what we have.
Gold futures saw a massive $1.5 billion liquidation in one minute yesterday which had all the hallmarks of a "non profit" liquidation - a large seller trying to manipulate gold futures lower rather than maximise profits.

The Great Cyprus Bank Robbery by Financial TerroristsPosted on March 17, 2013 by stacyherbert
Do you see Aquarius?
I see him occasionally in Wanchai, with his Filipina girl friend.
That's good, every man needs a good woman in their life.
Anyway, It lasted for days..probably more like a week. You don't know what day it is or time. You are being called at home because you're late for work. You sleep very little. Then the last night... Imagine your chest and heart as a pin cusion with thousands of needles pushed in. You wake up the next day and feel like a million bucks. That's the condensed version
Hopefully his Filipins girlfriend doesn't do acupuncture
If you were a banking employee on Cyprus would you go to work monday in your own car, or ride the public buss home?
Ride a goat.
I think the Cyman Islands banking are safer than the Cyprus bank. Cyprus made bad bets in Greece and could not print like Bernankie to erase obligations. But gold may have a buying window if EU shows what is under her banking skirt.
If I had all my ponzi money hidden in the Cayman's I would be doing some soul searching at this moment.
My own take on Cyprus
Wait until the guy bulldozes the bank only to find there's no money in there!
Just enough paper cash to fill the ATM everyday.
There never was any money in there, just "credit", whatever the F* that is.
The one in my picture just wants to smash the bank. Fuck the cash.
I wish you'd stop taking about the Social Security Trust Fund that way.
It upsets the seniors.
Hi WB7!!! I wonder why "run" the banks, when the Cypriots could "run" the bankers??? Sooo, here is you an Irish Poem for today:
The Bankers in old Nicosia (pronounced: nik-uh-see-uh)
Decided the island to flee-a.
The mob chased the crooks,
Too bad 'cause it looks
Like they see ya. . . don't wanna be ya!
Squeeky Fromm, Girl Reporter
You disappeared, I hope this means you are back ;-)
Given the steady flow of events I wish others would come back as well.
And Happy Saint Paddy Day!
Squeeky - you are getting very good. You must be drinking in same Galwegian bar as the Limerick King
Thank you Clown!!! I pretty much just do Franzia White Zinfadel , about which I did a Haiku thingie:
Franzia Wine rocks!
In its little cardboard box.
Replenish your stocks.
An illusion it will be, so large, so vast it will escape their perception.Those who will see it will be thought of as insane.
We will create separate fronts to prevent them from seeing the connection between us.
We will behave as if we are not connected to keep the illusion alive. Our goal will be accomplished one drop at a time so as to never bring suspicion upon ourselves. This will also prevent them from seeing the changes as they occur.
We will always stand above the relative field of their experience for we know the secrets of the absolute.
We will work together always and will remain bound by blood and secrecy. Death will come to he who speaks.
We will keep their lifespan short and their minds weak while pretending to do the opposite.
We will use our knowledge of science and technology in subtle ways so they will never see what is happening.
We will use soft metals, aging accelerators and sedatives in food and water, also in the air.
They will be blanketed by poisons everywhere they turn.
The soft metals will cause them to lose their minds. We will promise to find a cure from our many fronts, yet we will feed them more poison.
The poisons will be absorbed trough their skin and mouths, they will destroy their minds and reproductive systems.
From all this, their children will be born dead, and we will conceal this information.
The poisons will be hidden in everything that surrounds them, in what they drink, eat, breathe and wear.
We must be ingenious in dispensing the poisons for they can see far.
We will teach them that the poisons are good, with fun images and musical tones.
Those they look up to will help. We will enlist them to push our poisons.
They will see our products being used in film and will grow accustomed to them and will never know their trueeffect.
When they give birth we will inject poisons into the blood of their children and convince them its for their help.
We will start early on, when their minds are young, we will target their children with what children love most, sweet things.
When their teeth decay we will fill them with metals that will kill their mind and steal their future.
When their ability to learn has been affected, we will create medicine that will make them sicker and cause other diseases for which we will create yet more medicine.
We will render them docile and weak before us by our power.
They will grow depressed, slow and obese, and when they come to us for help, we will give them more poison.
We will focus their attention toward money and material goods so they many never connect with their inner self.
We will distract them with fornication, external pleasures and games so they may never be one with the oneness of it all.
Their minds will belong to us and they will do as we say. If they refuse we shall find ways to implement mind-altering technology into their lives. We will use fear as our weapon.
We will establish their governments and establish opposites within. We will own both sides.
We will always hide our objective but carry out our plan.
They will perform the labor for us and we shall prosper from their toil.
Our families will never mix with theirs. Our blood must be pure always, for it is the way.
We will make them kill each other when it suits us.
We will keep them separated from the oneness by dogma and religion.
We will control all aspects of their lives and tell them what to think and how.
We will guide them kindly and gently letting them think they are guiding themselves.
We will foment animosity between them through our factions.
When a light shall shine among them, we shall extinguish it by ridicule, or death, whichever suits us best.
We will make them rip each others hearts apart and kill their own children.
We will accomplish this by using hate as our ally, anger as our friend.
The hate will blind them totally, and never shall they see that from their conflicts we emerge as their rulers. They will be busy killing each other.
They will bathe in their own blood and kill their neighbors for as long as we see fit.
We will benefit greatly from this, for they will not see us, for they cannot see us.
We will continue to prosper from their wars and their deaths.
We shall repeat this over and over until our ultimate goal is accomplished.
We will continue to make them live in fear and anger though images and sounds.
We will use all the tools we have to accomplish this.
The tools will be provided by their labor.
We will make them hate themselves and their neighbors.
We will always hide the divine truth from them, that we are all one. This they must never know!
They must never know that color is an illusion, they must always think they are not equal.
Drop by drop, drop by drop we will advance our goal.
We will take over their land, resources and wealth to exercise total control over them.
We will deceive them into accepting laws that will steal the little freedom they will have.
We will establish a money system that will imprison them forever, keeping them and their children in debt.
When they shall ban together, we shall accuse them of crimes and present a different story to the world for we shall own all the media.
We will use our media to control the flow of information and their sentimentin our favor.
When they shall rise up against us we will crush them like insects, for they are less than that.
They will be helpless to do anything for they will have no weapons.
We will recruit some of their own to carry out our plans, we will promise them eternal life, but eternal life they will never have for they are not of us.
The recruits will be called "initiates" and will be indoctrinated to believe false rites of passage to higher realms.Members of these groups will think they are one with us never knowing the truth. They must never learn this truth for they will turn against us.
For their work they will be rewarded with earthly things and great titles, but never will they become immortal and join us, never will they receive the light and travel the stars.
They will never reach the higher realms, for the killing of their own kind will prevent passage to the realm of enlightenment. This they will never know.
The truth will be hidden in their face, so close they will not be able to focuson it until its too late.
Oh yes, so grand the illusion of freedom will be, that they will never know theyare our slaves.
When all is in place, the reality we will have created for them will own them.
This reality will be their prison. They will live in self-delusion.
When our goal is accomplished a new era of domination will begin.
Their minds will be bound by their beliefs, the beliefs we have established from time immemorial.But if they ever find out they are our equal, we shall perish then.
THIS THEY MUST NEVER KNOW.
If they ever find out that together they can vanquish us, they will take action.
They must never, ever find out what we have done, for if they do, we shall have no place to run, for it will be easy to see who we are once the veil has fallen. Our actions will have revealed who we are and they will hunt us down and no person shall give us shelter.
This is the secret covenant by which we shall live the rest of our present and future lives, for this reality will transcend many generations and life spans.
This covenant is sealed by blood, our blood. We, the ones who from heaven to earth came.This covenant must NEVER, EVER be known to exist. It must NEVER, EVER be written or spoken of for if it is, the consciousness it will spawn will release the fury of the PRIME CREATOR upon us and we shall be cast to the depths from whence we came and remain there until the end time of infinity itself.
hmm, ...perfect description of the hofjuden run fraudulent fractional reserve central banking
Glad I'm not in that covenant, it sounds shit.
How nice; but how stupid. Nice because the sheep believed in their politicians (stupid). Only way this world wide mess is going to get any better is when the sheep revolt. First step losing something valuable - like trust and your moneyat the same time.
Biggest Question: Are these not the same pack of fools who blew themselves up last year?
Next biggest Question: Are they just terribly retarded - I mean did any of them believe that being the bottom of the russian sewer system was a good place to be?
Ultimate biggest Question? If the Russian Oli's dumped everso much money into the cypriat banks as deposits - where did it go? Who got it? Hmmmmmm. Why is this not openly debated, discussed INSTEAD of all the mumbo, jumbo about OH WHOO IS ME?
I mean really - just like OBAMA and Holder - no one really at risk for prosecution.
And you think the human species is evolving. Bullshit. Stupid as ever. Move on. No change here.
This is WAY TOO MUCH reality for most Americans.
Cyprus? Isn't that a kind of tree or a town in Florida?
Pretty close. It means "no tan lines."
You mean Cyprus fruits.
"This grabbing of ordinary depositors' money is billed as a tax, so as to try and circumvent the EU's deposit guarantee laws. It robs smaller investors of the protection they were promised.
"If this were a bank, they would be in court for mis-selling," she said.
fight the bullshit!
what the "depositors" should do is borrow from the bank,
in the case of those with less than 100,000. 6.75% of their
account at time of levy, withdraw all their money and tell the
bank to fuck itself, they will not be repaying the loan.
similar strategy for those with over 100,000. but make the loan
9.9% of balance.
what is really happening is criminal collusion and financial fraud
on the part of the bank and eu perpetrated against the citizens and
customers. if it is a tax it is a tax on the bank, they are the party
that has the money, not the depositor or customer, they have loaned
the money to the bank. the bank is then transferring the tax to the
customer without notice or justification.
what is happening is the eu is forgiving a part of the
loan the customer gave to the bank without the consent of the holder
of the legal document that brought the loan into existence.
that is financial fascism in my book. and fraud.
You know it really is possible to survive without banks and more people are doing that each day.
But, most of them not by choice. Doesn't matter. The trend is a positive sign.
So apparently the account holders have their money stolen by the government, and in return they get 'shares in the bank', with a 'value' equal to the money they lost.
So, will they be able to sell those shares?
Because if they are allowed to sell the shares, we all KNOW what's going to happen next.
Question is, was that also obvious to the geniuses behind this theft?
And how many of them placed puts on the bank stocks, before the announcement?
(To be strictly correct, I should put single quotes around 'money' as well.)
This payment in kind is covered in Prechters Conquer the Crash. A hedge fund may make a bad investment in some illiquid paper, and later make payment in kind when facing redemptions. They distribute the (illiquid) paper they are holding to their investors. It's not much different than orphaning a bond, (and while the Fed keeps pushing bond investors into longer maturities, this is a risk you face) Experts opine that the Fed has painted itself in a corner, but that's when they pull the deus ex machina out and airlift themselves to safety. For US domestic banks with a similar problem, the FED could buy their assets, or do a swap if they didn't want to use FDIC, or FDIC tapped out, or the political blowback prevented them from using FDIC, and they might replace your bank balance with Treasury Bonds. The Cypress problem isn't much different than the US S&L crisis, in which the banks were forced to pay high rates on interest, but were unable to loan money out at that rate. That was the US hot money problem at the time, and it might happen again.
All I know is this is not the result you would get if they dissolved those banks. So once again we have an example of capital malformation for the benefit of stakeholders who deserve to be wiped out.
As long as this continues, things will only get progressively worse.
Awesome stuff as usual WB7. One of my admins found this site and sent me the link. I was not previously aware of it. I have gotten more than a few chuckles out of it so far. Somebody really put some work into this website.
I know that someone there is following my stuff.
Basically they position themselves on the right, whereas I have no patience for the right or the left such as it is. So for example, everything targets Potus and the Democrats but not the Republicans. As you know I target all of them.
I also use the socialist art meme very differently.
Please you have no clue of the treason that has occurred. Obama is ineligible and the R's are touting their own ineligible candidates--- i.e Jindal, Rubio, Cruz, for POTUS or VP--- all are not natural born Citizens due to non US Citizen parents. The treasonous congress knows that the US Constitution has been Usurped and US Citizen sovereignty no longer exists, which is why no law seemingly exists--- because it doesn't. Until you acknowledge and trumpet the FACT of Obama's ineligibility then you are merely a steam vent. The mass awareness of his ineligibility is the only way back.
Well for fuck sakes. I had no intention of starting a fight club on WB7's thread. MickV, you really ought to look at WB7's body of work before you draw a conclusion about him. We will end it here and now. I will speak only on my own behalf here. I really do not give a shit about .fedgov. The whole den of thieves is illegitimate. Almost ALL of the world's problems stem from two places and this would be central government and central banks as they both work in concert to rip off the ordinary citizen. R? D? You are kidding right?
Well, I guess I did gain some knowledge while I was in one of the two mega-parties as an officer. I am done with it now. And just so you know, the R party is flat on it's back, dead, and the corpse is rigor mortis ice cold. Your ilk and your fucking incessant wars and murder in the name of the state lost us. We are done with you folks. The R party will NEVER win a presidential election again because we are not coming back. We gave you "R" pricks a chance to listen but you wouldn't. You "R"'s either threw us out of the political conventions or blocked us from speaking. I was there and I saw it with my own eyes and you ain't going to back-peddle your way out of this one. So sit and spin on it. Might as well let the D's spend us into oblivion and get this shit over with because the sooner the better. Clear enough? Did you really think we would forget???
So here is your fucking bloody sword back "Mr.R". You should fall on it if you really did have any honor.
I hear you WB7. I was not endorsing the site per se but I found the level of content to be quite good. It's not my website. Mine is only 45 days old or so and I only have four contributing admins so far. It's a work in progress. It is really difficult to build a site that not only looks good but has good content.
Me personally? I am neither right or left and if we need a label attached to me than I guess I would be an anarcho-capitalist. I did the Ron Paul thing in 2008 and 2012 and I am tired of politics now. It's just so pointless. The further up the chain of command you go in the two parties, invariably, you will run into a large banking organization who calls the shots because they have the digitz. Really, I am tired of this whole charade of central banks and the nation state notion as well. I am tired of hearing about "We need to follow the Constitution". Has anyone actually read Article One Section 8? You know, the part of the Constitution where it establishes a .FedGov.
The only hope I have left is in creativity. I like to see people being creative and when I do see something of note, I like to give them some appreciation. It is very difficult these days to draw anything creative out of anyone. Everyone seems scared of some sort of consequences for expressing their own opinions in whichever format they might choose. WB7, you are not one of those people.
WB7, I did not mean to offend your sensibilities. I apologize if I did so. It is interesting that someone there is following your work. I would take that as a compliment so long as they are not plagiarizing your work.
Sorry, I wasn't offended. Just reporting in ;-)
I already have @blumaberlin emulating my style quite capably. I could use a few more. Then I could be Visual Combat Art director.
No worries WB7. I would ask you in advance if it was OK to use any of your works. We don't do photoshop that much. I have one admin who is in the video game graphics industry and he is extremely good. I presented the idea for a scrolling shooter game with a specific meme but it seems that it is much harder to do than at first glance. If we can develop it, I will post it on one of your threads first. Right now, I am wondering how much it will cost me to get the game made. I am thinking 1982 Atari graphics would be fine but I guess he is thinking 2013 3-D level and says we need a whole lot more folks, up to 500, to do it. WHOA!LOL Umm... Failure to communicate. My bad.
We have not launched our SEO yet because we are not yet where we need to be. I see that you have sourced a printer for two of your works. Signed even. Impressive. I know that doing something like that takes a lot of work. I would be glad to help you on selling some of those via a sidebar link.
Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can go from there.
I have ideas about doing a game but I need a game developer.
My ideas don't require 3D graphics and an army of Indians.
trillions for banksters but not one red cent for people.
we have owners afoot doing their owner shit.
Coming soon to a bank near you! Why, oh why is it so hard to make the Sheeple see what's coming?
Because they're sheeple.
Its all bullish...really it is!
the words are so important, linguistic combat.
question, when you put your money in a bank you then have
an account at the bank with your money in the account?
answer, no, that is not correct. those are the wrong words
to use to describe what has happened.
It is easy to forget that because they use the wrong words
when you talk to them at the bank, they commit fraud.
when you put accumulated debt notes or other ? obligations
in an account at the bank you become a creditor to the bank.
the money is theirs, you have lent it to them. if they have
a problem paying you back on the loan with no maturity or
duration they you go to court to see where you stand as a creditor
to the bank.
am i lying?
Right on the money.
The bulldozer is in front of the bank in Cyprus to make the symbolic point. Put your money in a savings account, and you are picking up dimes in front of a bulldozer.
Bernanke is the Pope of monetary authority - yes we need a new moral leader - a jesuit like Volcker - to rebuild that monetary church, and he is coming, and Bernanke is him. The US monetary authority does not need to surcharge account holders to steal their savings, they can allow inflation to outpace interest rates. They will do it because they have been doing it all along, and must really change nothing at all to accomplish their methods. They can even front run their own bond auctions, which they already do, and sell bonds at a premium to par which exceeds the interest the bond earns in its lifetime.
To accomplish this they must do nothing except maintain their current policies. The bulldozer parked outside is meant to symbolize unfettered access to your money. The other part of the lexicon is the standard Wall Street saying about buying stocks in a slow moving counter cyclical rally within a larger secular bear market. all paper investments are the same, (Bob Prechter) and Paybacks are Hell
The second one is Gold. LOL
Banzai, pls don't incite bank runs, k thx.
At least wait until I get my money out Monday - then bulldoze away.
If only I had such influence.
In the old neighborhood, someone would have said by now: get the two by fours.
