Federal Reserve Policy Mixed With Extreme Weather Has Put The World On A Fast Track To Revolution And War.

There are many factors that clearly demonstrate why it would be disastrous for the Federal Reserve to repeat their vicious Quantitative Easing (QE) policy. If you want to know a significant reason why they cannot get away with another round of QE, here is an equation for you:

(Quantitative Easing + Extreme Weather = Revolution + World War III)

From the very beginning we knew that the Federal Reserve’s QE program was going to cause the cost of food to rise and the dollar to decline in value, and that these intended results would lead to an increase in poverty and civil unrest. Now there is a new study that gives us some more proof of this obvious fact:

Are food prices approaching a violent tipping point?

A provocative new study suggests the timing of the Arab uprisings is linked to global food price spikes, and that prices will soon permanently be above the level which sparks conflicts….


… there is a specific food price level above which riots and unrest become far more likely. That figure is 210 on the UN FAO’s price index: the index is currently at 234, due to the most recent spike in prices which started in the middle of 2010 [coinciding with QE2].


Lastly, the researchers argue that current underlying food price trends – excluding the spikes – mean the index will be permanently over the 210 threshold within a year or two. The paper concludes: “The current [food price] problem transcends the specific national political crises to represent a global concern about vulnerable populations and social order.” Big trouble, in other words….


The next part of the study identifies that the serious unrest in North Africa and the Middle East also correlates very closely with [the QE2] food price spike. Bar-Yam also notes: “Several of the initial riots in North Africa were identified in news stories as food riots.” From there, the researchers make their prediction of permanently passing the 210 threshold in 12-24 months.

In other words, if the Fed engages in another round of QE, the global unrest that they have already ignited will go hyperbolic.

Before getting into the details on how the Fed deliberately made these food prices spike, let’s look at another new study, which also helps demonstrate the obvious, extreme weather is linked to war:

Climate cycles linked to civil war, analysis shows

Changes in the global climate that cut food production triggered one-fifth of civil conflicts between 1950 and 2004

Cyclical climatic changes double the risk of civil wars, with analysis showing that 50 of 250 conflicts between 1950 and 2004 were triggered by the El Niño cycle, according to scientists.


Researchers connected the climate phenomenon known as El Niño, which brings hot and dry conditions to tropical nations and cuts food production, to outbreaks of violence in countries from southern Sudan to Indonesia and Peru.


Solomon Hsiang, who led the research at Columbia University, New York, said: “We can speculate that a long-ago Egyptian dynasty was overthrown during a drought. This study shows a systematic pattern of global climate affecting conflict right now. We are still dependent on climate to a very large extent.”…


Mark Cane, a member of the team, said global warming would have greater climatic impacts than El Niño, making it “hard to imagine” it would not provoke conflicts. [read full report]

Put all these factors together and you have, “The Road Through 2012: Revolution [and/or] World War III.”

In summation, Ben Bernanke and the Fed’s economic central planners were clearly aware of the hostile climate and weather patterns when they engaged in QE2. The Fed’s infamous policy, as I said before, “deliberately threw gasoline all over those brush fires. QE2 was another economic napalm bomb from the global banking cartel.” They knew that they were deliberately attacking (sacrificing) tens of millions of people, but that was secondary to keeping their global Ponzi scheme going by pumping another $2.1 trillion into their fraudulent, insolvent banking system through both QE programs. This is why Ben Bernanke is guilty of crimes against humanity.

Now, let’s revisit what I’ve been reporting on for the past year:

I: Centrally Planned Economic Repression

The IMF has a well-worn strategy that they use to conquer national economies. As I warned four months ago, we have now progressed into Step 3.5: World Wide IMF Riots. Back in October, in a TV interview with Max Keiser, we discussed leaked World Bank documents that revealed the IMF’s strategy. I stated the following:

“They have a four-step strategy for destroying national economies…. We are about to enter what they would call Step Three. Step Three is when you’ve looted the economy and now food and basic necessities all of a sudden become more expensive, harder to get to. And then, Step 3.5 is when you get the riots. We are fastly approaching that….

We are headed to, as the IMF said, and as they plan, Step 3.5: IMF Riots. That’s what’s coming…”

Fast-forward four months to today, and now we see country after country rebelling against high food prices. Since our October interview, food prices have spiked 15%. According to new World Bank data, since June 2010, “Rising food have pushed about 44 million people into poverty in developing countries.”


As Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke announced another round of Quantitative Easing (QE2), those of us paying attention knew that the trigger had been pulled and Step Three had been executed. It was a declaration of economic war, an economic death sentence for tens of millions of people – deliberately devaluing the dollar and sparking inflation in commodities/basic necessities. It was a vicious policy that would impact people from Boston to Cairo.


When QE2 was announced, I warned: “Food and Gas Prices Will Skyrocket, The Federal Reserve Just Dropped An Economic Nuclear Bomb On Us.” I also wrote: “The Federal Reserve is deliberately devaluing the dollar to enrich a small group of a global bankers, which will cause significant harm to the people of the United States and severe ramifications throughout the world…. The Federal Reserve’s actions are already causing the price of food and gas to increase and will cause hyperinflation on most basic necessities.”


To be clear, there are several significant factors contributing to rising food prices, such as extreme weather conditions, biofuel production and Wall Street speculation; but the Federal Reserve’s policies deliberately threw gasoline all over those brush fires. QE2 was another economic napalm bomb from the global banking cartel.

In a recent McClathy news article entitled, “Egypt’s unrest may have roots in food prices, US Fed policy,” Kevin Hall reports:

“‘The truth of the matter is that when the Federal Reserve moved on the quantitative easing, it did export inflation to a lot of these emerging markets…. There’s no doubt that one of the side effects of the weak dollar and quantitative easing has been rising commodity prices. It helped create this bullish environment for commodities. This is a very delicate balancing act.’

It’s a view shared by Ed Yardeni, a veteran financial market analyst, who reached a similar conclusion in a research note to investors…. He joked that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke should be added to a list of revolutionaries, since his quantitative easing policy, unveiled last year in Wyoming, has provoked unrest and change in the developing world.

‘Since he first indicated his support for such a revolutionary monetary change… the prices of corn, soybeans and wheat have risen 53 percent, 37 percent and 24.4 percent through Friday’s close,’ Yardeni noted. ‘The price of crude oil rose 19.8 percent over this period from $75.17 to $90.09 this (Monday) morning. Soaring food and fuel prices are compounding anger attributable to widespread unemployment in the countries currently experiencing riots.’”

The people throughout the Middle East and Northern Africa, on the fringe of the Neo-Liberal economic empire and most vulnerable to the Fed’s inflationary policies, are the first to rebel. [read full report]

The conclusion that we reach, the unfortunate reality of our current crisis: the Federal Reserve and global economic central planners have declared war on us. We are under attack.

We must remove Ben Bernanke from power and hold him and the rest of the global banking cartel accountable. We must also break up the “too big to fail” banks. This a message I, along with many others who have analyzed our economic situation, have been repeating over and over for the past three years.

Hopefully, a critical mass of people will soon understand this reality and back it up with non-violent civil disobedience before riots and violence rip our society apart. For these reasons, let’s all go to Wall Street on September 17th and show these tyrants that we’ve had enough.

I would hope just revolution vs the Oligarchy, not WWIII.  The Oligarchy feeds on the death of the innocent, and we've had more than enough of that.

i-dog's picture

The Luciferian Oligarchy is pushing hard for WWIII. The population is asleep (and will eventually only wake up when they are very hungry). Put those two factors together and work out your own odds of WWIII vs. Revolution!!!

The first step to a revolution is for the states of the US and Europe to secede from their globalist Unions. Without secession, the globalists hold all the cards.

Every semi-conscious US citizen should be pushing for their State Governors and State Legislatures to secede from the unconstitutional government in Washington, DC. That is how you can starve the globalists before they starve you.

Secede or die!! That is the choice.

234 is coming quick.  Riots will be worldwide.  But, the idiot sucking all the large players off said this about inflation:

"Concerns and fears over inflation are largely overstated.  The increase in food prices in developed nations can be largely attributed to growing populations and a desire for more sophisticated foods."    - Benocide

There you have it.  The idiot himself outright lies at the podium telling everyone that starving people are too picky to fill their bellies.

For shame, Ben.  You need to go to therapy.  You are lying to the world and money is your God.  Shame on you as you engage in monetary warfare that starve individual citizens on this earth, you fool.

The underlying geopolitical texture is ugly. If the US hegemony is suddenly ended by some black swan, there would be a massive void. And voids are quickly filled with ugliness. Better to reduce the US's hegemony slowly while we still have the chance... that's why I'm supporting ron paul.

Between Benny and the Banksters, and punishment by the green aliens for producing too much CO2, the future looks so dark that we will need 4th generation night binoculars to see ahead.

Enjoyed the time to cut my wrists (with Flakys assistance).

Paul Krugman longs for the good old days when a World War could cover over the stench of failed Keynesian policies.  They will try to find a boogeyman to get the ball rolling (my bet is on Iran, since we are already there).  China and Russia have Muslim problems, too (although they both don't seem to mind trading with Iran).  So the fight will be continued in the sand box.  The Arab spring will set the stage for an all out battle royal to focus Americans and take their minds off of our economic collapse.  You will need to make sacrifices for the war effort, etc, etc...  Orwell's "1984" is their playbook, not a work of fiction.

Hey Spirit of Truth.  Religion is bullshit.  Repeat as necessary.  

escargot's picture

So many 'junks' for saying 'religion is bullshit'?  Religion IS bullshit.  It's shocking to think that so many adult human beings--people who are otherwiwse intelligent enough to see through government lies and propaganda--will cling to their little religious fairy tales like a child clinging to a blanky.

That fucker deserves a bullet.

I prepare all of my food from scratch, and white flour went up over 100% this year.  Doesn't get more basic than that.

Sabibaby's picture

Stocking up, now we need a list of people and their location to throw the bullets at.

Sabibaby's picture

Actually can we build a "Most Wanted" list with the terrorists and locations they frequent?

You mean like a deck of cards with pictures of their faces on it? How clever and creative people can be when they put their minds to it.

Can we have the print master be the ACE of spades? Or would a Rothschild be more appropriate?


WarPig's picture

We need a whole database of that info.  Names, addresses, known associates, GPS coordinates for vacation homes, yacht docking slips, etc.

Bloodstock's picture

Interesting. Will "Wanted" posters become all the rage again? Where will they live? Will they always be looking over their shoulders? Will they ever get any rest? Many famous faces should be known by all.

I made a WANTED DEAD OF ALIVE poster for The Bernank yesterday.  Had some ski bums in Jackson Hole hang a few hundred of them.  Check it out...

Jesus nope that quote should really be our battle cry. What an inhuman parasite

Red Herring's picture

In 2011, the quote needs to be updated to

"Let them suck it up and eat peas"

Taku's picture

It's, y'know, transitory...

Nothing to concern about...
(about a billion people globally suffering from food inflation, lack of/access to clean water, etc)

Yet Bernokio 'made a killing in the market' (Anyone have the full link? It's getting harder to find).

Oh, it's only been going a FEW YEARS now.


Don't worry, they can eat later. 

Let them have green shoots.

trav7777's picture

dumbass, he said in DEVELOPED nations.  There is nobody yet starving in developed nations. 

Taku's picture

bernanke, is that you??

hey asshole, live on in your bubble.

still sucking on your mama's tit or is your keynesian daddy's helicopter trust fund running low?

right, no one starving in the US or UK?

or do you mean yet?

I don't give a fuck if he only says developed.

I say the fucking planet.

people are people, fuckhead

Thanks to food stamps and soup kitchens


Max Hunter's picture

Exactly Jumblies.. Travis hasn't seen some of the Food Security numbers that have been published.. Kinda scary.. and indeed.. the preceding stage before people do start starving..

DaveyJones's picture

over 30% of alabama is on food stamps

Freewheelin Franklin's picture

How many people are on food stamps?


Nah, not starving....just sucking on the government's teet.

DaveyJones's picture

no just really really hungry

can't believe you said that. Wait, strike that.

and that makes it better least we're exporting our inflation?

the developing nation has darker skin?

Voting with Bullets.. En-Vogie in 2013..

So says the MASSES! as Austerity / Social Security Cutts are enacted..

God Bless Wall Street and ALL of the Gods Work that they do!

If there is a "History Channel" in 50 years, the war is over, and you lost.

This ain't one body's story.
It's the story of us all.

We got it mouth-to-mouth.
You got to listen it and 'member.

'Cause what you hears today
you got to tell the birthed tomorrow.

I'm looking behind us now. . .

. . .across the count of time. . .

. . .down the long haul,
into history back.

I sees the end what were the start.

It's Pox-Eclipse, full of pain!

A good case for secession can be made with the odious debt that the American taxpayer has been forced to take on. Secession would put an end to the taxpayer's obligation to pay these illegitimate debts. Determining the part of the debt that is odious would of course require an audit of the US national debt. Those parts of the the debt that are due to TBTF bailouts, crony capitalism, wars that were fought and paid for but never declared, etc, all Fed and congressional actions for which there is a colorable claim that their primary purpose was to enrich private interests, etc.

Secession would break up the food cartels and allow a much healthier form of localized food production based on sound organic farming that enriches the soil rather than depletes it. It is the ideal solution to living in a world of diminished fossil fuels and the need to go to war to control the worlds oil supply and force other countries to their knees.

The way things are going, the elite are going to obtain their objective of massive depopulation. Secession would stop them in their tracks.

tarsubil's picture

It would be civil war and a lot of destruction and broken windows from Krugman types. The oligarchs will win that war and we'll be right back to where we are at. Secession is not the answer.

tarsubil's picture

Two easy steps to breaking the oligarchy: bring the troops home and end the Fed income tax. No need for seceding.

RagnarD's picture

Changes in the global climate that cut food production triggered one-fifth of civil conflicts between 1950 and 2004

Cyclical climatic changes double the risk of civil wars, with analysis showing that 50 of 250 conflicts between 1950 and 2004 were triggered by the El Niño cycle, according to scientists.




Really?  Were these scientists wearing labcoats, wearing black rimmed glasses, and holding clip boards when they presented this data?

What "science" is it that links climatology with human events?
