    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

Gold And The Fiat End-Game

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Our current fiat currency standard is terminal, nations around the world are dropping the U.S. dollar as a medium of exchange, central banks are buying gold, and Americans are seeing price inflation during an economic downturn. In order to avoid a systemic financial crisis here in the U.S., we need to focus on solutions. This mini-documentary expounds the problems and a solution to the real economic crisis hiding under the safety blanket of an equity market at all-time highs.

One of the opinions out there is that this is the begining of serious inflation, as equities are at all time highs, fiat currencies debauched and devalued, and PM's regularly capped or taken down.  The bullion run right now also is interesting, as my suspicion is that insiders are simply stealing what's available.

Whatever is happening, this is the end game in real time.  How long it lasts before kaboom is anyone's guess.

i am sooo sick of this shit just fuckin do it the proper way and lets all move on,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,let the people that want to invest in stocks do so and let the the true fuckin price mechanims work i am soo sickkkk of all of it

hhow much does it cost to take an ounce of silver out of ground? its gotta be more than 20 dollars

as the system eats me from every possible way just taking everything i have eventually, i can't get my money out of my 401k and that what i have they charge me interest. If i go in and out they charge me outrageous fees, Trapped money that goes to them.  Just to sell something on FEEBAY you may as well donate it. My normal bank alone charges more fees to bankrupt me alone with anything else, They own fuckin everything and I've been working my azz off since i came into existence,,,,,,,fuck em all

Confiscation via Forced Liquidation, Denial of Storage, Taxation-at-POS and getting Corzined are alarming sings and are escalating. 

This is also why more and more ppl are opting to mitigate risk by self-storage or private storage.  If you are a 'nervous Nellie', I'd opt for several places (self-store plus private storage), just so you can sleep better.

And on the Jim Willie, 'end of the Petro-Dollar' and new international gold trading order theme -

Interesting article on Veterans Today forecasting major war involving US and Russia because of precisely that

Author says that the reason the corrupt mainstream media has joined the Obama-bashing, the various scandals - IRS, AP, Benghazi etc. - is to box in Obama with an implicit threat, so he goes along with starting World War III in the Middle East ...

The reason for World War III being 'necessary', says the article, is that the US will collapse without the Petro-Dollar, and they cannot preserve the Petro-Dollar unless they bring down the Iranian government, which they cannot do because of Syria and the Russians ...

While the Russians and Chinese cannot allow the US to take control of Iranian as well as Saudi oil

Hence World War III is the last option for the US Fed and oligarch families, with the corollary the US then goes directly into more explicit dictatorship:

well, the US Senate just voted on this...............(05/23/2013)..............unanimously, I might add........

 

''The US Senate decided unanimously to support Israel should it pursue military actions to defend itself against the Iranian nuclear threat. The decision's sponsors are the Foreign Affair Committee Chairman Robert Menendez (D) and senior Senator Lindsay Graham (R)(homo).

 

According to the resolution, the US will furnish Israel with diplomatic, military and economic support to defend its territory, citizens and existence. The resolution also determines that the US policy is to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and take the necessary steps to pursue this policy. (Yitzhak Benhorin, Washington)''

lets not forget, these assholes (US Senate) could not even unanimously vote aid to/for our own people after Hurrican Sandy....

To say I'm scratching my head at Rand's vote is an understatement, too say the least. Haven't had time to try and find his explanation for it (if such a thing exists). Can't fathom the rationale (which can only appear to me to be utter irrationality) coming from an otherwise thoroughly rational human being... Anyone have any clues?

His vote was bought and paid for, duh.

His father is a Freemason.  Might not mean much to most folks.  But the Pauls do what is asked of them, no more, no less.  Controlled opposition.  And if they threatened to kill you, you probably would be too.

Sure - it's called deception ... and it's all the rage in elite circles. Why, just the sort of circles that Rand spins in.

But here ... let me spell it out:

He's a fuckin' politician - and he doesn't give a rat fuck about you, what you do, what you believe, or what you believe him to represent. We live in a fucking cartoon and he's a character playing his role. Nothing he does is for your benefit.

Wake the fuck up.

what is wild is the market will crash as soon as interest rates rise because everyone will know the rates are rising because the end is near and not because the economy is heating up.
