The Cyprus Banking Collapse & How It May Wipe Out Your Savings!

When Cyprus banks imploded, Americans, shrugged "where the Hell is Cyprus and what does it have to do with me?" Well, those who still don't know the answer may soon find out the very hard way why the Cyprus disaster may be spreading to their banks very shortly. Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and a member state of the European Union. Prior to joining, Cyprus had a thriving economy and its banks were considered offshore safe-havens for wealthy Russians, KGB "black money" and other European investors who wanted to protect their assets from overzealous governments. 

That all came crumbling down in the blink of an eye on March 16. Due in part to their disastrous 'investments' in Greek and other sovereign debts that are now worthless, the banks were forced to shutter themselves and go on the longest banking holiday in Europe's history. The ponzi scheme had gone bust! Holding to its tradition to squash wounded member nations when they're down, the EU made Cyprus an offer it couldn't refuse: in order to receive a 10 billion euro band-aid to temporarily stop the nation from spiraling into financial chaos, it was ordered to steal up to 40% of the depositors' money held in formerly untouchable checking and savings accounts to help prop up the failed banks.
Bank robbery in reverse!

40% of deposits over the 100,000 euro level were to be confiscated and since  depository "insurance" covered only up to that amount, any deposits over 100,000 euros could be taken completely! So imagine, you have a checking and or savings account totaling 200,000 euros, after the theft you are left with only 60,000 euros. Goodbye retirement savings. Cypriots, you are now broke!

To add insult to injury, very tight capital controls have been introduced, preventing depositors from pulling what little hasn't been stolen and closing their accounts for good. No more than 300 euros a day are available to citizens, cashing of checks is no longer allowed and visitors leaving Cyprus cannot take more than 1,000 euros out of the country. Like something out of an extreme Orwellian nightmare, airport inspectors rifle through luggage and personal belongings looking for undeclared money to hand over to their banking masters.

The choice bank customers are now given
In a sadly ludicrous statement, Nicos Anastasiades, the President of Cyprus, unwilling to face his people directly, tweeted "I would like to thank the Cypriot people for their maturity and collectedness in their interactions with the Cypriot banks." Translated, what he means is "thank you for showing great faith in the banking system by not pulling all of your money out and closing your accounts, even though we wouldn't let you get to your money in the first place. Your collective loss is a small price to pay to save our precious bankers. And remember, rioting is frowned upon and not very mature behavior. Carry on -- toodeloo!"

As a clear sign of their true intentions to eventually take everything, officials from the central banks and finance ministry just announced that 40% theft is simply not enough and that depositors may have to kick in an additional 20% more to the cause. Yes, that's right, 60% of your savings are now theirs! Criminal? You bet, but when it comes to modern day banking, this kind of behavior is quickly becoming the rule rather than the exception! Of course, the people of Cyprus and the offshore depositors are outraged, but there is nothing they can do other than to rue the day they entrusted their savings with the criminal banking cartel.
Doing business with the banks and
you end up "sleeping with the fishes!"

Still, how are they able to get away with this robbery in the full light of day? Easy, they just keep moving the goalposts by creating new rules that suit their needs. The most important one is a re-definition of what a depositor is and trust me, you won't like it. Now, when you open what used to be a 'safe' conservative checking or savings account, you are now considered an "at risk" lender, making an unsecured loan to the bank at zero percent interest for them to invest in whatever way they choose.

When bank 'investments' implode, as they inevitably do, and they become insolvent, you lose some or all of your money you thought was safely segregated in your bank accounts to make them whole. The banks can then go back to making even wilder bets, comforted with the knowledge that you got their backs no matter what, while lavishing themselves with astronomical bonuses and pay raises for wholesale greed and corruption.
Nigel Farage warns "Get your 
money out while you can!"
The reasonable question to ask is what idiot loans a bank most of their money, exposing themselves to maximum risk while getting absolutely nothing back in return? Of course the answer is no one would do that willingly unless they were fleeced into doing so by bankers pulling heaps of wool over their eyes.

Max Keiser breaks down the banking plunder
Even in Cyprus, the depositors were covered by deposit insurance...until they weren't. You see, the Euro-zone masters arbitrarily decided to take that punch-bowl away by claiming euro member nations should not be taxed to save the Cyprus banks, even though they were anyway (confusing, I know). Bank depositors were ordered to pay for it instead, even though their accounts were supposed to be segregated and protected from wild investments made by the bank. The end result is banks are now able to leverage the accounts of its customers at zero risk to the bank, knowing when their unconscionable investments blow up, they will be made whole by their unsecured creditor customers, who never knew or intended to be bank creditors in the first place!

The economy hasn't come close to it's bottom yet!
But why now? Well, I believe the answer is shockingly simple to figure out when you see the financial contagion spreading throughout the Euro-zone and how the globalist bankers' are capitalizing upon it. Now that word is out that money in Euro-zone banks is not safe, citizens of other member-nations are closing down their accounts at record pace to protect themselves from the collapsing euro and inevitable capital controls. And where will this money end up? Right into the eye of the storm, the mother of all collapsing economies - The United States!

If the euro is about set to implode, the U.S. dollar is set to go full nuclear, obliterating all paper assets on the face of the Earth. You see, as bad as things are with the euro, their leaders do not have the power to print unlimited amounts of un-backed 'funny-money' while also serving as the world's reserve currency as the Federal Reserve does with the dollar. It is due to this drunken printing spree that we see the DOW JONES hitting all-time highs, while the government shouts from the rooftops that the real estate bubble worries are also over and everyone should "buy, buy...buh-bye!"

The mother of all housing bubbles about to burst!
It seems only corporate insiders know the U.S. economic recovery is a total sham. Typically, in a robust or improving economic climate, insiders who have intimate knowledge regarding the actual financial state of their companies, buy up their stock in expectation for even higher prices. That is not happening at all. Instead, signalling an extremely bearish top, insiders are selling their stocks at a ratio of 500 sales to every 1 buy for several years now. What that means is they're getting out of dodge before the herd can stampede for the exits when the whole house of cards comes crashing down on top of them!

Due to the printing of $90 billion per month of increasingly worthless dollars and dumping those into failing foreign/domestic banks, while the pension and 401k sector assists by blindly overfeeding the bloated equities market, The FED is able to keep the illusion alive just a bit longer that "investor con-fidence has returned." As in poker, the big 'tell' that this is all an empty bluff is the fact that buying volume has been drying up as the market has headed higher.
Housing Bubble 2.0 
And in the real estate market, prices in many localities have returned to pre-bubble crash highs despite the fact that the national economy has gotten much worse, debt is growing at an unsustainable pace, wages are flat, unemployment continues to rise, companies continue to go out of business, welfare rolls have surpassed 50 million recipients and states continue to go bankrupt.

The market is dead but we're not supposed to know that!
Again, the Federal Reserve's dirty fingerprints are all over this reinflation of the real estate bubble. Since the collapse of 2008, the FED has poured trillions of bailout dollars into failed Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the banks, who hold worthless mortgage-backed securities, to keep them on life-support even though they are already dead. The purpose is to lure unsuspecting investors into the housing mousetrap once again, trapping them inside before they come to realize there is no economic recovery underway!

Because of the artificially suppressed zero percent interest rate environment, citizens have been forced into the highly speculative stock and real estate arenas in a desperate attempt to keep up with inflation and hold onto what little purchasing power they have left. Real estate flippers have come out of the woodwork in previously devastated California and Las Vegas, creating a real estate hot potato mania once again, driving prices up to ridiculously unsustainable levels and the last one holding will once again be burnt to a crisp. Based on my observations, the 2008 crash was merely a hiccup for the real financial train-wreck that may be just around the corner.

Economic Hitmen deliberately destroy
 economies to steal resources!
That said though, let's get back to the reason why European investors and savers alike, may soon be transferring billions of their own quickly collapsing euros into the U.S. economy, thus inflating the U.S. bubble even further. Like their American counterparts, they feel there is nowhere else to safely park their money and since the U.S. markets in stocks and real estate appear to be rising and thriving, they seem like the best places to invest at the moment.
The American Dream: an entertaining look
 at the history of the U.S. money system
The trap is sprung: Call me a conspiracy nutter if you must, but it seems clear the  secretive globalist cabal who run the very private Federal Reserve system believe they are on the cusp of realizing their true goal laid out exactly 100 years ago with the creation of the treasonous Federal Reserve Act. Now that they have carefully engineered the world into accepting the U.S. dollar as the currency of last resort, they will then destroy it, creating global chaos and forcing a new one world currency to enslave them with. "Let me issue and control a Nations' money and I care not who makes its laws" - Amsel Bauer Mayer Rothschild (1838). 

If only this were a joke!
Despite the fact that there is no longer any logical reason to keep money in banks, Americans still believe their deposits are protected by the FDIC up to $100,000. Sounds great, until we start digging through the surface to reveal some very shocking truths.

The FDIC has only $33 billion dollars to insure well over $12 trillion of deposits held in U.S. banks. Far worse still, when Bank of America took over Merrill Lynch, it was obligated to take on Merrill's $75 trillion in toxic derivative assets. To prevent this exposure from imploding the bank, B of A was allowed to dump these worthless paper assets into their customers' FDIC-insured depository accounts.
Matt Taibbi breaks down B of A fraud  
And guess what, the FDIC thought nothing of it and approved it, effectively transferring the toxic debt onto the shoulders of its customers instead of B of A, meaning there is no FDIC insurance to cover any of the citizens, only the banks will be partially saved. Any shortfall above that will be paid by what's left of the accounts of those unfortunate enough to have their savings locked up in the criminal banks. In effect, the banks will be made whole at the expense of the people once again. If this doesn't wake up the citizenry to march down to their banks and pull all of their money out, nothing will!

Bankers tell you to ignore gold as they grab all they can!
It is vitally important to understand that the U.S. dollar is being destroyed on purpose as are all competing fiat currencies like the euro. As I have been suggesting for many years now, the only way out of this quicksand deathtrap is to follow the lead of the uber rich and do what they do and not what they say to do. For the past decade they have been loading up their vaults with physical gold and silver, while dumping increasingly worthless derivative paper assets onto the unwary people, continuing to drive them into abject poverty. 

To put this into perspective, as everyone cheers the DOW JONES reaching all-time highs of 16,000 since 2000, that's only around a 50% gain in thirteen years, clearly a losing bet to inflation. Comparatively, gold and silver are up roughly 600%! So now you know why the smart money continues to scoop up as much of the metals they can get their hands on while enslaving the masses with their toxic debt notes that carry extreme counter-party risk.

As banks continue to fail and the FED keeps the bailout  printing spigots going full blast, thus debasing the money even further, both gold and silver will continue their ascent to truly stratospheric levels. If you thought Apple's ascent from $20 to $750 was amazing, the upcoming moves in both metals will leave you speechless!

Eric Sprott: "Silver is the investment of the decade!"
Better yet, ownership of gold and silver carry with it no counter-party risk as dollar-based paper assets do since they cannot be inflated away through FED printing and debased. Can you now see why the bankers will do everything they can to steer you away from owning either of these? Ownership of the monetary metals is a rejection of banker tyranny and the control they exert over those who accept their worthless paper debt notes.

Only a fool still takes advice from an 'investment' broker!
In Matthew 21:12, 'Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers (bankers) and the benches of those selling doves,' while the Bible states that usury is a sin!

Yes, it's pretty clear what the answer may be to free humanity from the banking shackles of debt placed securely around its neck and to start down the road to financial salvation, however it is the individual responsibility of each one of us to take action based on this knowledge if we hope to not only survive, but to prosper as well. Amen to that! We should prepare for a wild ride full of many surprises so I wish you all the best on your individual and collective journey!

The Gov't As Paranoid Conspiracy Theorist

If you've been paying attention to the goings on in our nation's capitol, you may have noticed the government's behavior appears to have become a wee bit paranoid, irrational and bizarre with each passing week. Like the mental patient who rants to anyone and no one in particular that the end is near and everyone is out to get them, the need to straitjacket and rubber-room many of 'our' representatives has never been more clear!

The deranged President and his crew of congressional zombie yes-men shriek and shudder at the formless boogey-dudes, chicks and kiddie 'terrorists' they believe lurk around every corner of the globe that the American people must be protected against. It seems every shadowy figure that moves, whether real or imaginary, is savagely attacked with bombs and drone strikes in a "kill first, ask questions never" type of medieval justice. Sadly, anything goes in the "better safe than sorry" Obama Administration war on terror, which is nothing more than a flimsy excuse for further genocide to overcompensate for their own Hellish demons. 

The unfortunate results of government 'education.'
And what of the American citizens? Unfortunately, they have for the most part enabled the government psychos by often cheering them on, or at the very least whistling past the graveyard while repeating "better them than us, better them than me" even as the global human rights abuse locomotive surreptitiously changes course and now bears down on them.

What's put the people of this once proud nation into such a complacent stupor? I'd say GMO's, toxic chemicals in food, fluoride in drinking water, vaccines, pharmaceuticals and other government-approved substances that are meant to cloud the mind contribute greatly.

(This was laid out in "The Trouble With Pro-Healthers & The Vaccine Agenda" and "Take Back Your Own Health" so feel free to read those if you haven't already.) 

"Take a thousand of these and call me if you come to!"
With the people impaired, the government media arms swing into action, easily herding them into the 'freedom is not free' all you can eat feeding trough, where they are gorged on mind-numbing propaganda until their brains ache and bellies are about to burst. Given this travesty, it's hard to fully blame the complacent masses for their inability to see through the fog of conspiratorial insanity.

This may explain why the people flinch at the levels of cruel brutality and deteriorating civil rights that have made their way onto American soil, but have, thus far anyway, not offered much resistance to it.

As the government slowly, but surely continues reducing the size of their holding pens, the herd inevitably become agitated and starts questioning what they have been fed to believe and why their movement is being so severely restricted. To quell the rising tide of discontent, the government increases the levels of fear and terror propaganda, while serving up unlimited amounts of 'free' drugs and vaccines through Obamacare as a 'cure' to lull the masses back to sleep.

"Ignore what you think you see and go back to sleep!"
This works to quiet the many, but a few among them refuse to eat at the trough or follow herding orders any longer and begin to rage against the tyrannical machine. At first, these rebels are laughed at and ridiculed by the masses who, lacking any coherent response to counter their arguments, dismiss them as lunatic-fringe 'conspiracy theorists' who believe the government is out to get them.

To the horror of the plantation owners, the 'fringe' voices emanating from the wilderness begin echoing bit by bit into the mainstream herd. It begins as an almost imperceptible whisper, then swells to an ear-piercing sonic scream that can no longer be ignored.

Terrified that absolute control over the herd may be compromised, the government goes into full paranoia mode. The pens are locked down even further, stronger drugs and deadlier vaccines become mandated, dictatorial and arbitrary rules are created, the herd's every word, thought and behavior are tracked and data-based, with deadly punishment meted out to those who do not comply as a warning to the rest. At it's worst, the herd is implored to police itself and bribed with rewards for snitching on those who appear to be anti-government troublemakers.
Janet Napolitano wants you to do your part 
by snitching on friends, family and countrymen
The above sounds more than vaguely familiar, yes? That's because Hitler's Nazi regime did the exact same thing during their rise to power, making it relatively easy to see why Obama's critics so so often compare him to his 'predecessor.' The signs are plainly in front of those 'with eyes to see and ears to hear' that the proverbial shit-storm has finally touched down, loudly sweeping across the land and devastating everything in its path! 

"These are not the 'real' terrorists you're looking for!"
Despite their protestations that anyone who questions their motives is paranoid, it is the government that really believes everyone is out to get them, so they do all they can to strike first. Their favorite method used to frighten the public into docile submission is to convince them that someone is out to get them too.

The curtains part and onto the stage are marched the cast of character actors who will play the role of terrorist evildoers, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, Hugo Chavez, Kim Jong Il, Muammar Khaddafi et al. Each of these CIA-trained, roleplaying assets is then systematically eliminated one by one in order to convince the people they have just been saved from bullying tyranny from afar, when in fact the real tyrannical bullies remain entrenched right under their collective noses!

All speech is 'Hate Speech.'
Ever wonder what the real agendas behind the anti-bullying and hate-speech laws are all about? Trust me, it has nothing to do with protecting the people from each other through political correctness and everything to do with protecting the government from being bullied and hate-speeched against by the people who have had quite enough tyranny, thank you very much! The very goal of ridiculously transparent schemes such as these is to convince the citizens that speech deemed "undesirable" by the government must be censored and in fact, eliminated for the good of its people.

Let's quickly examine how this has worked out for the people. Since around 2002, we've seen the erection of "free speech zones," which are nothing more than a way to keep protesters penned in many blocks or miles away from the President, congressmen and other related political elites they may want to freely speak out against.

"Sit down and don't say a word EVER!"
It's the old adage, "if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to see it, does it make a sound?" Apparently not, as Obama recently stepped up his quest to eliminate free speech by signing H.R. 347, The Federal Restricted Grounds and Improvement Act, a bill that criminalizes protests near 'restricted' sites punishable with up to ten years in prison. Yeah, that'll make those annoying protesters think twice before uttering a single word of criticism or resistance to the 'King.'

Again, once those pens are created, they will always become smaller and smaller until they literally become prison cells from which there is no escape. It is the rightful duty of all citizens in this 'checks and balances' republic system to make sure they do not get boxed in by a runaway government that seeks to dominate through paranoic tyranny. For once the people begin to cower in fear and to be bullied and intimidated by the civil servants who are supposed to do their bidding, "abandon all hope ye who enter here, for the lunatics have taken over the asylum!"

In past articles, I've spoken in some detail regarding the myriad laws and agencies that have been set up to box us all in, which includes the Patriot Act, Homeland Security, TSA, NSA, FBI, CIA, NDAA, ACTA, FEMA, etc., so I won't repeat them here. Instead, let's break down some of the more recent government acts that clearly exposes their diabolical agenda against America.
DHS says white people are the terrorists!
The new definition of domestic terrorists. The government is utilizing its propaganda media machines at the LA Times, SPLC and New York Times, among others, to announce the new terror threat as being American Libertarians, conservatives, preppers, supporters of the 2nd amendment, the Constitution, guns owners, those critical of the government and lastly, white people! Yes, they consider Caucasians are the new growing terror cell to be closely surveilled, jailed, bagged & tagged! And for the most part, the frightened collectivist liberals have taken the bait, hook, line and sinker, crying out for their Hitlerian King Obama to ban guns, civil rights and now white people apparently.

Big brother's spies forever watching and shooting us!
The LA Times rag had this to say about the new threat: "There are, in increasingly frightening numbers cells of angry men in the United States preparing for combat with the U.S. government. They are usually heavily armed, blinded by an intractable hatred, often motivated by religious zeal. 

They're not jihadists. They are white, right-wing Americans, nearly all with an obsessive attachment to guns, who may represent a greater danger to the lives of American civilians than international terrorists." It goes on to implore the government to take funding from foreign terrorist resource management and divert it to closely spy on the domestic patriot movement 'neanderthals' instead.

Disconnect from the propaganda machine!
The fear mongers over at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) continue the paranoia with their warning that growing cells of white supremacy extremist and patriot groups, who they claim are both anti-minority and anti-government, must be watched, infiltrated and broken up before they carry out deadly terrorist actions throughout the country.

Most revealing of all is that returning war veterans have been targeted as terror suspects. Additionally, soldiers crippled in combat, deemed physically or psychologically incompetent, diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or any arbitrary psychiatric 'disorders' must give up their guns. The likely reason for this is the government fears these highly-skilled individuals may defend the Constitution and oppose them.

Target practice with these? I think not!
How many bullets does the government need for target practice? In case you haven't heard, the Federal government is on a bullet buying spree. The Department of Homeland Security originally claimed the purchases were for ongoing weapons training of federal employees. That sounds reasonable on the surface, until we examine how much and what type of ammunition the various agencies were buying.

They used our tax dollars to collectively purchase over 2 billion bullets so far, with much of it being deadly hollow points (forbidden in war by international law) and specialized sniper rounds.

Yes, 2 billion rounds, enough to wage a hot war for 25 years! The assertion these rounds are for target practice is patently absurd. In no situation is it reasonable to use expensive hollow point or sniper rounds for target practice. These bullets are used for one thing and one thing only, to kill massive amounts of people! 

Actual targets ordered by DHS
Creepier still, DHS recently ordered a series of "no more hesitation, non-traditional threat" shooting targets labeled "pregnant woman threat," "older man with shotgun," older man in home with shotgun," "older woman with shotgun," "young school-aged girl," "young mother on playground" and "little boy with real gun." 

According to a spokesperson for the maker of these outrageous targets, Law Enforcement Training, Inc, "The subjects in NMH targets were chosen in order to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training. I found while speaking with officers in the law enforcement community that there is a hesitation on the part of cops when deadly force is required on subjects with atypical age, frailty or condition."

Seriously, like it's a problem that a cop might hesitate before gunning down a pregnant woman or a child on a playground? The DHS claims this is necessary in order to prepare cops for nationwide civil unrest that may be brewing. Now why would they think that anyway?

Regardless, no matter how they justify it, the intended purpose of these targets is to "train" and desensitize law enforcement officers to robotically shoot to kill without hesitation what they believe is the upcoming 'threat' from pregnant women, children and old people. That fact is undeniable! And let's not forget Dianne Feinstein, who proclaimed "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them (guns) all in" as she continues her campaign to disarm all Americans at the same time the federal government arms itself to the teeth and takes target practice on them! 

Coming soon to Every-town USA!
To add heaps of insult to injury, DHS also thought it reasonable to purchase over 3,000 heavily armored personnel carriers and tanks that have already been deployed and are policing the streets of America, along with Obama's heavily armed drone spy planes. The picture is becoming quite clear, isn't it? I never said it was a pretty one.

By the way, this is all illegal but the crazed lunatics will have us believe that extraordinary circumstances (whatever they may be, they won't say) call for extraordinary measures and that the Constitution of the United States is little more than a helpful guide to be revised, re-defined or ripped up altogether if it suits them.

Does this all sound suspiciously like the paranoid government thinks an uprising by the people against its ongoing tyranny is about to be triggered and is preparing to counter it? Hmm, let's continue further down this rabbit hole to see how this chess game is playing out, shall we?

The mother of all bubbles about to pop?
Exert full control by destroying the nation's money. When the streets are patrolled by heavily armed government Nazis, the peoples' guns confiscated and rights effectively abolished, they are left completely exposed for the final coup de grace: deliberate destruction of the economy!

Since the 2008 implosion of the real estate bubble and the massive banking criminality that deliberately caused it was exposed to the light of day, the government would have us believe that by sweeping it all under the rug and 'punishing' the banks with untold trillions of ongoing bailout dollars has somehow righted the sinking ship.

Yet again, the media has leapt to the government's defense, touting the DOW's meteoric rise to historic highs and the ongoing reflation of the real estate bubble as proof that the Federal Reserve's endless, unbacked money printing has worked, the economy has been resurrected from the dead and is roaring back to life.

What they conveniently ignore is the fact that welfare rolls have swelled to well over 47 million recipients as nationwide unemployment and layoffs continue to rise unabated. This is despite the hundreds of billions spent by Obama's federal jobs creation programs in a horribly failed attempt to artificially stem the tide.

I don't think this is the 'change' we asked for! 
Even more shocking, 110 million Americans are on some form of government assistance, totaling more than a third of the country on the dole! Sadly, this number does not account for social security, medicare or Obamacare, which would raise that number to nearly 100% of the country, which was their plan all along.

For, once people grow accustomed to welfare handouts, they quickly lose their appetite for independence and are more than happy to give up freedoms and remain shackled to the system as long as the crumbs keep falling off the government table for them to scoop up off the floor. Those who become completely dependent on the system for their every need would never dare risk it all by criticizing Obama, who Chris Rock bizarrely called "our boss" and "dad of the country."
"Who's yer daddy?" Apparently it's Obama
Now that we are able to easily see through the agenda, it is no shock that "daddy" Obama has opened up the borders, allowing a mad rush of illegal immigrants to flood the United States, encouraging them to grab a chunk of the welfare funny-money giveaway while they're here.

The purpose of this is obviously to trigger race wars between citizens and illegal immigrants to fight over their precious welfare scraps, while draining the country's resources and driving everyone into further poverty. It's classic divide and conquer, pitting the people against one another to keep them distracted just long enough so they never see the government steamroll right over them until it's too late!  

"They're here!" Let the race wars begin!
As I've been 'ranting' for quite some years now, the best way to protect yourself against this engineered currency collapse and thereby, not becoming a helpless victim beholden to the government is to divest yourself of a great deal of the phony paper assets we've been tricked into believing is actual money and trade them in for gold and silver coins.

Derivative paper 'assets' are not real money, but like all paper money schemes throughout history, they always end up imploding into nothingness through government-banker fraud and manipulation. These will include your stocks, bonds, IRA, 401k and US dollars as well, the very ponzi-scheme pyramid the government tricksters would tell you to continue to keep your hard-earned money entrusted in.

Perhaps it's time to trade your dollars for gold!
Is it any wonder that the government now targets those who own gold and silver as potential terror threats? You see, once the Federal Reserve's trillions of dollars thrown into the U.S. stock and real estate markets aren't able to continue propping them up any longer, the real bubble will finally pop, taking the U.S. dollar, real estate and other global currencies down with them.

At that point, both metals will react by skyrocketing to extraordinary heights when measured against the collapsing currencies and reassert themselves as real money once again in what will be described as the greatest transfer of wealth in history!

Understand, this is nothing new and is something that has repeated throughout history 100 percent of the time. A little understanding and study of the long history of money bears this out and is certainly worth time to investigate for your own benefit. The fact that global central banks have been loading up their vaults with both metals is a clear indication that they are preparing for the inevitable financial collapse caused by the estimated $1.4 quadrillion in unbacked dollar and euro derivatives currently poisoning the world's financial systems.

Did you know pre-1965 silver dimes are currently
worth about $2.30, while the cheap copper dimes
minted after that are worth only 2 cents?
Unfortunately, due to government-media propaganda against owning either gold or silver, the masses, ignorant to the present necessity of owning them, are racing into their local "Cash for Gold" stores and trading what little they may own of these precious metals for the soon to be worthless stacks of green paper.

The best advice I can give you is to go against the herd and do the opposite of what the Wall Street and government banksters will encourage you to do. Gold will preserve your wealth, but silver has the potential to greatly expand it so choose wisely! And for God's sake, educate yourself about your options in order to make an informed decision and ultimately take action that you are comfortable making!

No, this is not like summer camp!
Never fear, Camp FEMA is here! Lest you believe the government would be so heartless as to toss people into the cold hard streets, our 'friends' at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have a solution. They have been working diligently with their partners at the Department of Homeland Security to build massive 'relocation' (prison) camps throughout the United States to 'temporarily' house millions of citizens displaced via disasters, left homeless after the economic collapse and non-compliants labeled as terrorists for opposing the present regime.

Yes, it does sound like the government wants to march pretty much all of America into Camp FEMA. In exchange for several meals per day, camp residents will toil away in forced labor details and be given free re-education programming on the merits of communal prison living as detailed in the leaked US Army manual prepared for the Department of Defense entitled FM 3-30.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations

Millions of these coffins are turning up in every state!
It seems they expect many Americans will not take to this wholesale brainwashing so FEMA has prepared for this eventuality by stockpiling millions of plastic coffins for what they are creepily calling "Mass Fatality Planning." The official reasoning is when mass extinction events from war, viral plague or disaster occurs, hospitals, morgues and mortuaries will be overwhelmed with bodies that need to be buried immediately.

Therefore, FEMA will be able to dump millions of the dead into these cheap coffins, then conveniently toss them into mass graves so as not to inconvenience the surviving camp inmates. How very thoughtful of them! "The roaches check in but they never check out!"

Whether we choose to believe it or not, we are living in a country so bizarro that anybody who predicted ten years ago that all of this would be happening now would've been considered a conspiracy-nutcase in need of much psychiatric and medicative help. Though perhaps the real conspiracy nutcases are the government stooges themselves who believe all of America is out to bring them down! And maybe they have good reason to be looking over their shoulders given all the rampant criminality and destruction they've wrought the past several decades at least.

Any questions?
Let's be real now. It's plain to see that the United States is quickly falling into the black-hole of totalitarian socialism, but that doesn't mean all hope is lost. No, there is still time to stop the spread of this deadly virus that has infected the local, state and federal regimes that have all become drunk with the desire to dominate and further enslave its citizens for their own self-involved goals.

Despite the fact that the Constitution is being criminally dismantled and our freedoms are withering along with it, as Americans, we must stare down the zombie government and have the courage to stand and speak up for our inalienable right to live freely and choose our destiny as laid forth by our forefathers. In case we've forgotten, the United States belongs to the people and not the government!

Rise Of The Drones!

We are living in strange times indeed. It's becoming clearer by the day that most people are increasingly becoming conditioned to disconnect from real emotion, enlightened thought, empathy and compassion in favor of a connection to convenient, albeit sterile tech devices that have steadily reduced human consciousness down to mere specks of dust. 

The "always on" modern smart phones, i-Pads and related gadgets are supposed to have empowered our lives, making it easier, while making us smarter, better and more efficient; freeing us up to do the things we really want to do. Instead, it's made society even more addicted to its seductive allure, to the point of being "jacked in" most of their waking day. 

I'm not suggesting that all technology is bad. Quite to the contrary, there are obvious benefits to it that truly do make our lives better in many ways. However, the wholesale merging of humans and technology can have a distinct downside that many science-fiction futurists have been warning about for many decades. Technology, in and of itself, is cold and sterile, requiring a conscious human operator to bring it to "life," so to speak. 

But as technology's power increases, the roles can quickly reverse, making it the dominant operator that brings the human to "life!" Since computers lack emotions or consciousness, they make decisions based on pre-scripted computer generated algorithms or digital bits of 1's and 0's.
President Terminator Drone plots to end life as we know it!
As long as that stays outside of the conscious human operator, there is no problem. But when the two inevitably begin to merge, therein lies the problem. Technology becomes like an out of control virus, infecting the human host, replacing consciousness with algorithmic, digital bits as well. The result is a population who resemble cyborgs more than humans! 

The evolution of this merger comes quickly once it gets going in earnest. In the 60's, bulky digital calculators were invented that simplified math problems. In the 70's, personal computers came onto the scene and by the 90's, processing power increased to unheard of levels, resulting in portable laptops. 

Since then, the chips have literally become microscopic in size as its power  expands by leaps and bounds. This has led to the rise of smart phones which can do just about anything and have become so 'indispensable' they are kept with the operator at all times. Weaning people further, the hands-free bluetooth earpieces provide even more convenience for the unwary to bring high-technology just one step away from a total symbiotic merger with the brain.
Don't become a slave to "smart" technology!
This is the point I believe we have hit the insidious wall of diminishing returns that the sci-fi futurists warned us about previously. Are we listening? It certainly doesn't appear so. What do I mean? Well, in the last forty years or so, we have become so reliant upon this technology that it has replaced the need to think critically or engage the mind to creatively solve complex challenges since "smart" computers have been doing it for us instead. 

What this continues to lead to is humans being programmed to do less and computers programmed to take up the slack, to the point technology is beginning to completely take over. Does this sound like strange sci-fi conspiracy? If you're still able to think critically and consciously, the answer is clearly "hell no!"

Through miniaturization, we already have vaccines containing nano-chips that monitor and supposedly identify disease in the body and are able deal with them on their own or report it to medical operators to intervene. Scary? That's not even the start! RFID implantable chips have been around for well over a decade, linked up to satellite and tracking towers that can monitor your every move. Through this, the government wants to introduce the mandatory 'convenience' of a cashless society, whereby ALL of  its citizens' personal, financial, medical information and money is stored on these micro-chips within the body itself. 
Nano-tech particles can kill!
All in the name of safety of course, as the government's original sales pitch of "you'll be glad your loved ones were micro-chipped if they are kidnapped" has now evolved to "this is how we'll weed out and kill the terrorists," whoever they are and "you no longer need cash or a credit card because all of your money is conveniently stored in your RFID chip and we'll track wherever you go and whatever you buy! How great is that?" Not very, as what they conveniently leave out is that they have the capability to kill those they deem non-compliant by delivering a lethal dose of cyanide through the implanted chip if they so choose. 
NBC NEWS: All citizens to be chipped
Sorry to rain on the high-tech 'convenience party,' but I'm not buying it, well most of it anyway. Full disclosure: I use a Samsung S3 phone and it is a great device that I use daily. That said, however, many of its 'conveniences' give me pause and reminds me just how intimate Big Brother wants to get with us. With its GPS, microphone and multiple cameras, this handy device can track, listen, record, photograph and video everything you do without your knowledge and stream it to your cell phone carrier and the authorities at their discretion. However, what they are doing with the collection of  all this data they won't say.
track users and no one can opt-out!
You can disable the GPS or turn off some of the tracking functions, but I doubt that is any guarantee they cannot enable it remotely and continue monitoring you. Remember, they can still find you even if your cellphone is turned off and the only way to disable the tracking is to pull the battery or ditch the phone, which becomes an expensive option. Additionally, many of its downloadable applications also tracks your location, behavior and usage in exchange for them being 'free.' In Samsung's (sort of) defense, these capabilities are available in just about every phone nowadays so it's definitely not exclusive to them and that should really give us pause!

Peeping Tom Gov't is watching your every move!
Fact is, just about everybody owns one of these devices now so, given that, it's best to use them consciously and know what we are getting into when we do, lest we allow smartphones to outsmart and run us over. This is the trade-off and it requires us to stay aware, informed and eyes wide open to prevent the machines from turning the tables and enslaving us...if it hasn't already happened that is!

So now let's examine some technologies that, on the surface, sound great, but when we delve deeper can and will be used against us if we allow them to.

GOOGLE: What was once considered a hip company of twenty-something geeks, whose corporate motto was "don't be evil," has transformed itself into arguably the most dangerous aggregator of personal information on the planet. Google wants to rule the world by gathering, storing and selling every bit of personal-private information about its users that it possibly can through its family of free sites that track their every move. Like a crack dealer, once you're hooked, Google makes it incredibly difficult to leave or opt out from their ultra-aggressive privacy intrusion, which is all by design. And like the big brother monstrosity it really is, the following list of Google's secret improprieties should cause its victims to rage against the machine that so blatantly seeks to enslave them. 

1. Champions gov't internet control, routinely blacklists sites it doesn't like and reduces the search status to alternative news websites in order to make them harder to find.

2. Spies on behalf of the National Security Agency (NSA) and reportedly received seed money from the CIA to finance its operations when it was a startup. It has also invested $10 million in partnership with the CIA for their joint internet monitoring project that data mines millions of public  websites to "predict the future" and catch terrorists before they commit crimes. We can only pray their algorithms don't target all of us and charge us with pre-crimes.

3. Uses Google Earth and Street View to help government agencies spy on citizens' homes for purposes of collecting taxes, levying fines for un-permitted structures, overgrown trees and shrubs, too many pets, etc. The list goes on and on! When asked about public concerns about the information collected by StreetView, CEO Eric Schmidt flippantly stated if they don't like it, "they can just move."

4. Google reads all email to flag certain words for hate-terror speech and to bombard users with targeted ads. More chillingly, Google turns its users into citizen Nazis by allowing them to flag and rat out other users as terrorist promoters, thus allowing Big Bro to shutdown websites or YouTube videos they don't like. 

5. Instant Search uses all of the information it has tracked about you so it can predict what you are searching for before you finish typing them in the 'search box.' Google says this helps its users to think less and to search more. Got that? Think less and become brain-dead robots!
Google Instant allows users to "think less"

6. To come full-circle on their diabolical goal to dominate our minds, Google is set to debut its appropriately named Google Glass Eye, a pair of computer enhanced, wifi-enabled glasses that "augments your mind." I'm sorry, I didn't know our minds needed augmenting in the first place! Google touts the advantage of this face-mounted device is so we can stay aurally connected (read: computers taking over our minds) to the 'net every waking moment of our lives as if that were a good thing. 
Google is Big Brother!
This GPS tracking nightmare allows the wearer to secretly videotape anyone they want and instantly "share" that video online. Wow, talk about using the people to do Big B's dirty work for them! In fact, Google co-founder Sergey Brin claims that having to stare down at a smartphone "it's kind of emasculating," and thinks his ridiculous glasses are more manly. 

Sergey feels more manly wearing Google Glasses
What the Goog fails to divulge is that the EMF's given off from these powerful glasses may cause cancer and destroy brain and immune function, since it's like having a smartphone strapped to your head all day long. But I'm sure that's such a trifling trade-off for the ability to be globally tracked, connected to the web at all times and for the unlimited amounts of modern conveniences it will provide its unfortunate user-slaves.

Worst of all, (but I'm sure it's intended) these funky glasses make the wearer look like a nerdish cyborg. Hmm, I wonder why? Perhaps, it's to get us used to the idea of becoming more and more like computer-controlled robots instead of humans? 

Smart meters watch your every move!
SMART METERS: Beware, the Smart Meters are watching you! Under the guise of energy conservation, these harmful, radiation emitting meters installed by your local power company tracks all your energy usage in real-time and sends it back to them. How? Well, all new home appliances now send out streams of information to the meters, ratting us out on behaviors such as what time we used our washer-dryer, how often the fridge was opened, how high the tub was filled, how many times the toilet was flushed, when the AC was turned on, what programs were watched on TV as it watches us or what temperature was used on the stove during cooking and for how long. 

With this information, the utility company can punish us for consuming too much energy at the wrong hours or cutting off power altogether if we do not comply with the machine's arbitrary wishes to conserve.
Beware! Smart Meters watch you 24/7!
In an effort to get us to ditch older appliances that don't have this 'smart' technology, the government offers generous, green rebate bribes to purchase the RFID-chipped ones that will spy on us 24/7! They have even resorted to going into Goodwill, Salvation Army and second hand appliance stores and removing older appliances and destroying them to make sure no one can have the 'inefficient' non-spying models in their homes for much longer. Talk about behavior modification at its extreme or so we thought!

"Any questions? Didn't think so!"
DRONES: All of this technological merging into our psyche has weaned our minds towards accepting the end-game for the ultimate goal of total control and takeover of humanity through computers and robot drones. The Obama-led drone-strike program removes humans even further from the equation by sending mechanized, robot planes into foreign countries to coldly and indiscriminately mass murder thousands of victims without the need to look them in the eyes before they do their dirty work. That's how inhumane and compassion-less this technology-craze has led the government psychopaths to become. 

America, we've got a problem!
It's gotten to the point that the US government has quickly convinced the technology-overdependent people that these very same killer drones should be employed above their skies as well in order to watch over and protect them. Government psychopath Senator Lindsey Graham recentlysaid "sometimes (most of the time) you hit innocent people, and I hate that, but we're at war, and we've taken out (to dinner more likely) some very senior members of Al-Qaeda." 

Given that well over 5,000 people have been killed by drone-strikes so far just to get a few dozen 'suspected terrorists,' what he's really saying is "who cares how many people we kill as long as it serves our political machinery!" And recently testifying against a bill that would limit the use of drones in Washington State, industry lobbyist Paul Applewhite uttered this gem, "why are we (Americans) denying ourselves this great technology that's now available?"  Thanks, but definitely no thanks, robot scumbag!

Don't get hooked by the machine's tentacles!
If you're shocked by the striking resemblance of Obama's drones to those in James Cameron's Terminator 2 movie, don't be. Science fiction movies have tended to show us where technology is headed and it's no coincidence that it's never shown to be headed in a direction that was in humanity's best interests, but in the best interests of the machines instead. If you will recall, in the Wachowski Brother's The Matrix, the mother-ship drones would release thousands of tinier, insect-like drones to hunt down and indiscriminately kill their prey. 

General Dynamics is obviously a huge fan of the movie as they are set to unleash their latest technological terrors called Micro Air Vehicles (MAV). Less than an inch in diameter, these little flying bugs will be dropped by the thousands from mother-ship drones to hunt down, illegally surveil, poison, incapacitate or kill their prey. Creepier still, these little buggers will communicate independently with each other without human control, deciding the best course of action to take. Yikes!
General Dynamics' creepy MAV video! 

Getting back to Terminator 2, Skynet, which was used to automate and control much of the planet, finally decided to render humanity obsolete and eliminate them altogether. Well, we have our own version of Skynet already deployed and it's called High Frequency Trading (HFT), which many feel will lead to a total global financial meltdown. HFT's are computer-controlled bots that scan the world's stock markets and based on programmed algorithms, execute a series of lightning fast trades without human oversight. 

This has led to several recent flash-crashes of over a 1,000 points on the New York Stock Exchange and individual stocks routinely spiking wildly for no apparent reason across the globe. After a recent HFT caused crash, Phil Silverman, managing director at Kingsview Capital, stated the obvious when he said "this algorithmic trading is kind of out of control."
How HFT will lead to financial armageddon
It seems that only the HFT bots themselves know for certain why they do this and they're not sharing! In effect, when the HFT bots determine it's time to pull the financial rug from under the entire system, it will do so in an instant and there will be nothing Wall Street or the rest of the world can do to stop it!

Will mosquito drones be deployed against us?
Like in T2, once the HFT bots have brought the world's financial system to its collectivist knees, will it then order their drone brothers and MAV sisters to hunt down and make extinct the only threat left - the people? A mere few years ago, this would have appeared to be a question asked by only the most delusional of conspiracy-theorists. However, in 2013, it looks more like a question asked by those who can plainly see this playing out in front of them in the blinding light of day. 

What can we do to stop this science-fiction doomsday warning from becoming realized prophecy? Well, no one knows for sure, but I'd say the very first thing to do is consciously examine our relationship with computers and technological devices by recognizing how they are being increasingly used against us at the same time they are being integrated into us. 

Don't let this happen to you!
The first step may be to refuse to be assimilated and infected into becoming mindless human bots by staying away from RFID chips, Google Glass headgear, bluetooth earpieces, smart meters, smart appliances and using your smartphones less, or at the very least, disabling some of its tracking and spying functions. 

An even better idea, the greatest form of protest against the oppressive machine is to go for a walk, a swim, a bike ride, a drive into nature or anything that disconnects you from the tethers of high technology dependence at least for a little while. It's a start anyway and one worth taking as our humanity may very well depend on it. Until next time, don't be scared, but be aware!

Don't let this happen to you!
