Dollar Moves Shake the World: “Federal Reserve Could Start a Currency War”

There is a war, a currency war, and the war is, ultimately, on us. In many respects, Americans have fallen far, and hard, from the liberty they once had. Rather than living under a sound currency, modern Americans live under an economic despotism. There are monopoly men who tightly control the money, and are all the more insidious in their subtlety, and quietness in the shadows. Today, things are so bad that they face economic enslavement and a rapid theft of their wealth through the debasement of the dollar’s value. Not only is the destruction of the dollar systematic and … Continue reading Dollar Moves Shake the World: “Federal Reserve Could Start a Currency War”

The Trouble with Cash? There’s Not Enough Of It

Phoenix Capital Research recently published an article entitled “Physical Cash Poses a HUGE Problem For Central Banks”.  According to that article, “More and more institutions are trying to make it harder for you to move your money into cash.” That’s not precisely true. Generally speaking, we don’t have any “money” (gold or silver) in circulation.  We only have “currency” (fiat, paper and digital dollars).  It would therefore be more correct to say that, “More and more institutions are trying to make it harder for you to move your wealth [not money] that you’ve stored in the form of paper debt … Continue reading The Trouble with Cash? There’s Not Enough Of It

IMF Colonized Korea–Part II Evidence

[Photo caption/credit: South Korean Flag courtesy Google Images] I published Part I of this article (IMF Colonized Korea—Part 1 (the “Agreement”)) two weeks ago.  Here’s Part II–the “Evidence” supporting my contention that the IMF colonized South Korea in A.D. 1997.  This total article is a long, hard read.  It’s not for everyone.  But if you want to catch a glimpse of how the world’s central banks and economy really work, this article is worth your time. In A.D. 1997, like several of the other “Asian Tigers,” South Korea suddenly slid close to financial collapse.  To avert national bankruptcy, the IMF … Continue reading IMF Colonized Korea–Part II Evidence

Debt Forgiveness

[Image credit: (courtesy Google Images)] If asked why I write and publish articles, most people would probably guess that I want to “teach” whatever it is that I know (or think I know). They’d be wrong. I don’t write to teach, I write to learn.  Something interesting crosses my mind.  I’m drawn (I think by our Father YHWH ha Elohiym) to write about it.  As I do, word-by-word and phrase-by-phrase, I often find new insight(s) that I never imagined before I started writing the article.  Thus, I learn from writing.  Learning excites me.  Writing is exciting. This is not to … Continue reading Debt Forgiveness

Pension Blues

[Caption/Credit for above photo: Politician: Trust Me–I’ll Protect Your Pension (courtesy Google Images)] MarketWatch.com published “The Next Greece May be In the U.S.”.  According to that article, “When Chicago Public Schools announced on June 24 that it would borrow $1 billion to make a $600 million-plus pension payment due June 30 an eerie feeling spread across bond investors and taxpayers alike.” Get that?  The Chicago Public School system has undoubtedly already collected hundreds of millions of dollars (probably billions) from the teachers to fund the teacher pension plan.  The School system is therefore a debtor to those teachers.  And yet, that … Continue reading Pension Blues

A Metal Whose Time Has Come

[Caption of above photo: The Gold Stallion – Get Ready for the Ride of your Life (courtesy Google Images)] Back in the 1990s I published a magazine called the “AntiShyster” that catered to people interested in legal reform and “patriot” issues.  As a result of that publication, for over a decade, I had an opportunity to observe almost every fundamental concept and strategy embraced by members of the “patriot” community. One persistent patriot focus was the monetary system in general and our fiat currency, in particular.  After much study (and sometimes much greed) a number of “patriot” gurus concluded that … Continue reading A Metal Whose Time Has Come

Banksters, €uro-madness, and the price of your groceries.

Though far more Americans are aware of and talking about the under-inflation of Tom Brady’s footballs, an infinitely more important and impactful inflation-related issue has been building publicly for months (if not years) now, culminating in today’s announcement by the European Central Bank that they will begin a massive, multi-trillion Euro “quantitative easing” (aka “money printing”) program of their own. While I’m as interested in the NFL playoffs as anyone (go ‘Hawks!), it sure would be cool if more folks would find a way to switch away from ESPN long enough to at least notice that they and their children are … Continue reading Banksters, €uro-madness, and the price of your groceries.

It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World—or, at least, it’s a Mad Economy

Mohamed A. El-Erian is Chief Economic Adviser at Allianz, a multinational financial services company.  He recently authored an article in Business Insider about the A.D. 2014 stock markets entitled “Traditional Factors Alone Don’t Explain This Remarkalbe Year For US Stocks”. Mr. El-Erian observed that, “2014 has been a remarkable year for US equities–not just in terms of the handsome return for investors (15% for the S&P) but also because of how this was delivered. “In 2014, the S&P, “Registered 51 record highs (that’s an average of one a week, the most since 1995); “Never had more than three days of … Continue reading It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World—or, at least, it’s a Mad Economy

George Bailey vs. The Greedy Global Elites of the Federal Reserve

My wonderful husband was the impetus for today’s post.  He knows that It’s A Wonderful Life is one of my all-time favorite movies.  First of all, I’m a huge Jimmy Stewart fan; and secondly, I love the theme of the movie — namely that each one of our lives touches so many people; we don’t even realize how the world would be different if we weren’t in it.       But as PLW was eager to show me, Frank Capra’s brilliantly directed movie has an underlying theme that will have me watching it with new eyes and ears.  Let me explain … Continue reading George Bailey vs. The Greedy Global Elites of the Federal Reserve

Grandmaster Putin’s Golden Trap II

As I’ve written previously, Russian writer Dmitry Kalinichenko wrote an article entitled “Grandmaster Putin’s Golden Trap”.  I view that article as generally brilliant.  Here are some more of my comments on Mr. Kalinichenko’s observations. Mr. Kalinichenko’s article focused on what he believed to be Russian President Vladimir Putin’s most brilliant financial strategy: buying gold with US fiat dollars. On the face of it, that “strategy” doesn’t sound like much. Buying gold with fiat dollars?   It’s done every day. What’s so brilliant about that? Well, the brilliance (or just common sense) behind Putin’s strategy is based on two fundamental premises:  1) … Continue reading Grandmaster Putin’s Golden Trap II
