The Deep State’s Message: Prepare For Totalitarianism

I find the current political situation to be as bad as I thought it would be when I forecasted it about ten years ago. The worst is yet to come. The corruption in the system is becoming much more apparent. The extreme biases in the mainstream media in favor of their particular owner’s faction is fairly obvious…The moneyed class turned the law and the thought leaders framing to their own benefit, and would now do anything they can to keep their ill-gotten gains. – “Jesse,” from Jesse’s Cafe Americain

Were you aware that the Government is starting to implement eye-scanners as part of the airport security protocol?  If you doubt that, then read this:  U.S. Marshals Scanned My Retina.   The TSA circus is all for show. It’s a way for the Government to get us used to following its orders and a way for the manufacturers of the technology used to make billions from selling that technology to the Government.   It also is an excuse for the Government to create employment for those who lack the competency to find a job in the private sector.

Ben Franklin said, to paraphrase, those who are willing to give up some freedom in exchange for security will end up with neither.  That’s where we are today, America.  The Patriot Act was written well over a year before 9/11.   The blueprint for the Department of Homeland Security was crafted in the mid-1990’s, during Clinton’s presidency.

It’s all stunningly Orwellian.  Even the terms used to describe newly created Government functions are right out of “Animal Farm” and “1984.”  The totalitarian control, confiscation of wealth by those in a position to confiscate and the use of technology to invade and regulate our private lives was prophesied by Orwell, Ayn Rand (“Atlas Shrugged”) and Aldous Huxley (“Brave New World”).    The technology that we take for granted as making our lives better is being used to remove our rights and freedoms.

Ironically, it all starts with the control of  the monetary system.  Those who control a nation’s currency need not be concerned about who or what makes the laws (Mayer Rothschild).   A few unelected “officials” control the United States’ creation of currency, which is then used as a tool to confiscate wealth – at first slowly and soon it will happen all at once.

In today’s episode of the Shadow of Truth, we discuss the Orwellian fog that is enveloping the nation and connect the political control our lives to the control of interest rates and gold:

Guest Post: Here’s Why The Banksters Are In Trouble

If the Fed were to reverse the portion of its QE in which it injected trillions onto big bank balance sheets as well as fomented a mortgage/housing bubble, the Too Big To Fails – including Goldman Sachs – would collapse.  Make no mistake, it would ultimately prove to be a good thing.

However, there’s also a growing groundswell of grassroot Americans who have “woken up.”  Perhaps the only good attribute of the last election is that it hastened the rate of enlightenment.   Too be sure, the number of Americans who understand the difference between Truth and Propaganda has vastly increased.

A reader of this blog and subscriber to the Mining Stock and Short Seller Journals submitted this narrative of a recent “enlightenment” experience that occurred while on a routine visit to the local barber shop.  It’s worth perusing:

I’m almost speechless as a result of the experience I just had. I have just returned from getting a haircut at the local barbershop downtown. I was there along with the barber, a semi-retired gentleman who now drives a school bus part-time, and a local hay farmer. Our conversation was an absolute stunner, and provides very compelling (albeit admittedly anecdotal) evidence that the bankster elite are in BIG trouble.

Why?

Well, first of all, the barber (in his late 30s) was explaining for all of us how the big banks are in MAJOR trouble on account of (and I am quoting verbatim) “the trillions of dollars of complex derivatives they are holding that are going to implode as a result of the rapid rise in US treasury bond yields.”

The bus driver then explained to everyone how he is no longer keeping any more money in his checking account than he needs to cover outstanding checks; that otherwise he holds all of his money in cash at home. Why? Because he is afraid that, at some point in the very near future, “we’ll all wake up on a Monday morning to discover that a bank holiday has been declared, and none of us will be able to access our funds.”

Finally, the hay farmer told us all how, as a result of having an excellent harvest this year, he had opted to pay off, two years early, the loan on his new tractor. He explained how he had received a call from the bank holding the loan, and the loan officer had attempted to convince him to NOT pay off the loan yet, and even offered to refund twelve months of interest payments if he would simply carry the loan to full term. The farmer adamantly refused. His response to the bank officer? “I understand perfectly well why you want to keep this loan on your books for two more years: you are using my loan as collateral to borrow short and lend long to the tune of at least ten times my original loan balance, and if I pay off my loan early, my debt and your collateral will be extinguished at the same time, and you’ll have to come up with more collateral to back up loans you never should have made in the first place.”

I was stunned!

“… borrow short and lend long … if I pay off my loan early, my debt and your collateral will be extinguished … loans you never should have made in the first place.” WOW!

I sat there absolutely amazed at the relatively high level of understanding manifest by these “salt of the earth” types — and I realized the extent to which the global elite have grossly underestimated the common folk of this world. I am, at this moment, as hopeful for the future of America as I have been in many years.

Anti-Gold Propaganda Reaches Bubble Proportions

The anti-gold propaganda spewing forth from all corners of the media is greater and more intense than I’ve ever seen any investment propaganda.  Every time I turn on Bloomberg, FoxBiz or CNBC there’s a discussion of how useless gold is.  It’s beyond surreal – it’s criminal.  – Investment Research Dynamics

There’s a new bubble in town.  It’s anti-gold propaganda.  I prefer to reference it as “anti-gold terrorism.”  It’s to the point at which it’s become silly – outright preposterous.  This Orwellian-derived antagonism toward gold reached its apex – at least I so thought – with the “gold is a pet rock” article in the Wall Street Journal:  Let’s Be Honest About Gold:  It’s A Pet Rock.

The article and analysis – or poor excuse for “analysis” contained therein reads like the work of a drunk five-year old.  Shame on Jason  Zweig for attaching his name to it. He can no longer be taken seriously in any regard as a journalist.  Shame on the Wall Street Journal for publishing that fermented piece of scatology.  If Jackson Pollack had produced a painting using fecal matter which lampooned the anti-gold terrorism coming from the media, that’s what it would have looked like.

Perhaps today the absurdity has reached the apex of its crescendo with this utterly ridiculous “letter to gold bug” published by Marketwatch:   It’s time to surrender and let the yellow metal fall to its bear market low

Seriously?  Here’s an open question to Howard Gold:   How can any market be said to be in a “bear” market when the forces driving it lower are Central Banks and Governments who wake up in fear every day over the possibility that gold might exploded higher and reveal the truth about the size of the lie our entire system has become.  Including YOU, Howie.

There are no markets anymore, only interventions (Chris Powell, Treasurer of GATA). Definitionally, the trading of gold can not be termed “a market” because it is not allowed to trade in a legitimate bid/ask exchange.  The “ask” side is nothing but fraudulent paper.  Therefore, it is completely invalid to reference gold as being in “a bear market.”  How about that, Howie, your “letter” is completely invalid – by definition.

What is it that the elitists fear so much that they have resorted to flooding the airwaves and internet with thoroughly foolish propaganda and lies?   I think anyone reading this knows the answer to that rhetorical question.

It’s far worse to be disappointed than pissed off.  I’m no longer pissed off about the unfettered criminality that has engulfed our system.  I’m disappointed by it.  These people have rendered useless and meaningless the efforts of anyone who attempts to conduct their affairs legally and morally.  If the elitists running the system are above the law, why should the masses abide?

The gloves are off.  I would urge everyone who reads this to “tweet” it at Howie:  @howardrgold.   He’s too much of a coward to list an email address on Marketwatch.com.

Of course, all of these so-called “experts” on the gold market in reality know nothing about it.  In fact, the propaganda will likely be for naught.  India a couple weeks away from it’s strongest seasonal period for importing gold.  The country has already imported significantly more gold YTD than 2014, contrary to the fraudulent media reports from Reuters and the UBS research department.

And then there’s China.  China is currently importing gold at a run-rate that exceeds the annual amount of gold produced by mines globally.  It too is getting geared up for another strong seasonal buying period.  It’s interesting that an “object” into which China is converting billions of dollars into has been summarily dismissed as “a pet rock” by Jason Zweig, Rupert Murdoch and the puppets who publish the Wall St. Journal…

The U.S. Government Is Using Hitler’s Playbook And The Dice Are Cast

I’ve asserted for years that the U.S. Government is an amalgamation of the Third Reich, “Atlas Shrugged,” “Animal Farm,” and “1984.”   Once again history is repeating.  The Nazis’ contemporaries are the neoconservatives who are running the U.S. Government behind the facade of Obama’s White House.

Stunningly, Obama’s hardiest followers continue to worship the traitor with the blind allegiance.  What is beyond comprehension is that Hillary Clinton is openly a confirmed felon in act – though remains unprosecuted –  and yet is the leading candidate out of both parties to be the next president.  It’s reminiscent of the blind allegiance to which concentration camp officers adhered.

If you think I’m guilty of hyperbole or wanton sensationalism, then read this excerpt from, They Thought They Were Free: The Germans 1933 – 1945…but then it was too late:”  which was contributed to Bill Murphy’s Midas report at Lemetropolecafe.com last night:

“What no one seemed to notice,” said a colleague of mine, a philologist, “was the ever widening gap, after 1933, between the government and the people. Just think how very wide this gap was to begin with, here in Germany. And it became always wider. You know, it doesn’t make people close to their government to be told that this is a people’s government, a true democracy, or to be enrolled in civilian defense, or even to vote. All this has little, really nothing, to do with knowing one is governing.

“What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.

“This separation of government from people, this widening of the gap, took place so gradually and so insensibly, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms, too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter.

They Thought They Were Free

I made this assertion about 12 years ago and, while it’s taken longer for impact to occur than I could have possibly envisioned, the assertion itself appears to more true now than it did in 2003:

There’s a giant 2×4 being swung at the back of the head of Americans and by the time most of them see it coming it will be too late to duck.  –  Investment Research Dynamics

 

 

The Daily Coin: Pushing Us Into A Cashless System

The elitists in control of the western financial and political system as slowly taking away all of our rights and imposing totalitarianism on the populations.  One of the primary tools they will soon implement is an electronic, digital currency system.  This way they can monitor your income, spending and tax payments.  It’s time to start fighting back, unless you are all okay moving into a “brave” new world in which everything you do is under the watchful eye of big brother.

One of the most effective means the elite use today to get their way and push a particular agenda is to make it “hip, swinging and very, very cool”. Another way is to simply tell you what is obsolete and “out dated”. Who wants to be “behind the times”? Certainly not someone who is looking for the next “really cool” gadget! No, this particular person wants to be on the “cutting edge” of the “next big thing”!

Enter the banking cabal and their desire to have total and absolute control of your life through your banking account and your means of transacting business.
Think my “tin foil hat” is screwed on a little tight? Well, how about this gem that was released earlier today in England:

Warren Buffet Is The Definition Of “Scumbag”

“There’s class warfare, all right,” Mr. Buffett said, “but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.”Warren Buffet, NY Times 11/26/2006

The “aura” of Warren Buffet is nothing more than the epitome of Orwellian propaganda.  Nothing is but what is not.  What Buffet “is not” is a good-ole rags to riches boy who has fulfilled the American dream.   Warren Buffet is the quintessential mascot of American hypocrisy, criminality and political corruption.

“A country that is now aspiring to an ‘Ownership Society’ will not find happiness in – and I’ll use hyperbole here for emphasis – a ‘Sharecropper’s Society.’ But that’s precisely where our trade policies, supported by Republicans and Democrats alike, are taking us.”  – Warren Buffet, 2005

Of course, Warren Buffet is one of the biggest beneficiaries of the U.S. trade policies.  I haven’t seen him lift a finger toward implementing reform…

I remember in the mid-90’s when I was working on Wall Street and was “pro” anything that could generate a profitable trade, including Greenspan’s money printing.  But I always cast a weary, suspicious eye on Warren Buffet.   I had read an article back then which detailed the myth vs. reality about Warren Buffet.

For instance, remember the auro of his “everyday man, wrinkled “sack” suits?”  It turns out that his suits were carefully tailored in Italy to cultivate that look and cost thousands of dollars.  How about the myth that he lived with his wife in the same small brick house in Nebraska that he started out in with her?  Total fabrication.  As it turned out, that house had been empty for years – although still owned by him – and Buffet had been mistress-jumping for years.  He also owns expensive homes in lesser-known hideaway places for the ultra-wealthy like Sun Valley and Sante Fe and other places all over the world.

Anyone/Everyone remember his “special” relationship with CNBC’s Becky Quick?  It was so obvious he was sleeping with her that CNBC never tried to deny it by planting disinformation in the alternative media world.

Warren Buffet is the “poster child” for hypocrisy and corruption in this country.  Remember when he made his “derivatives are financial nuclear weapons of mass destruction”  comment? (LINK)  As it turns out, Berkshire Hathaway’s insurance subsidiaries were and are among the largest users and beneficiaries of derivatives in the world.

How about when Buffet made the assertion that the wealthy should pay more in taxes and then it turns out the Buffet himself was paying a lower tax rate than his secretary?

This list is endless.  It has been said that Buffet has a direct line to the Oval Office. I have no reason to dismiss this.  Buffet is the kind of guy who would steal money from a homeless man and use it to get a shoe shine.

It did not surprise me that someone like Dan Loeb had enough backbone to issue harsh criticism of Buffet and Buffet’s overt hypocrisy:

I love reading Warren Buffett’s letters and I love contrasting his words with his actions…I love how he criticizes hedge funds, yet he had the first hedge fund,” Mr. Loeb said. “He criticizes activists, he was the first activist. He criticizes financial services companies, yet he loves to invest in them. He thinks that we should all pay taxes, yet he avoids them himself.  – Business Insider LINK

Warren Buffet is emblematic of everything that is wrong with our system.  The real Buffet is a cold-blooded greedy son of a bitch who would probably sell his kids for a chance to make money on a business deal.  Speaking of kids, the myth circulating in the 1990’s was that Buffet was going to put his wealth in a charitable trust and not leave most of it to his kids when he died.  Anyone hear any updates about the fraudulent story?

It’s ironic that Warren Buffet’s father, Howard Buffet, was a wealthy businessman and Congressman who was an ardent advocate of the gold standard.  In fact, that dispels another myth:  Warren was not a rags to riches investor.  He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth making money the Graham-Dodd way – he’s an inside elitist who uses his well-oiled political control to scheme  legislation that let’s him squeeze every last penny out of this country and trade on inside information…

Today’s Employment Report Is The Biggest Lie They’ve Told To Date

There’s no BS like the brown stuff tossed at us by the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics).  Not only do they want us to believe that the economy produced 257,000 jobs in January, during a time in which the energy sector – the largest source of jobs growth since 2009 – was cutting 10’s of thousands of workers, they revised November’s supposed 353k job gain up to 423k.  It was the second biggest monthly jobs increase this century.    Anyone believe that?

It’s gets better:   the notoriously ridiculous birth-death model modeled in a 257k net loss in jobs.  How is it possible that economy generated any jobs growth if big companies are dumping workers (see IBM + big oil + oil shale + Radio Schack, etc) and the traditional engine of jobs growth – new business start-ups – were unloading jobs?   I’ll tell you how:  pure, unadulterated statistical lies.

Oh wait. The BLS one-upped itself on its lies.   It took the number of jobs supposedly “created” by the economy in 2014 up to 3.2 million from the original lie of 2.95 million.   Now, how is that all possible when we have THIS (source:  Zerohedge.com, edits are mine – click to enlarge):

LFPR

Just a reminder, the only way that the labor force participation rate declines is when the number of people who leave the “labor force” exceed the number of people entering the “labor force.” It essentially means that there’s a huge “reservoir” of people out there who simply gave up looking for work and are permanently unemployed on the Taxpayer payroll – i.e. unemployment, Social Security Disability, welfare.

Please see this video for a detailed description of just how blatantly distorted the Government’s employment report really is:

I guess in order to make lemonade out of this cyanide-infused lemon the Government served up today, the best part about any Government economic report is watching grown men debate and agonize over the numbers, when the numbers are a complete fairy-tale. It’s like watching supposedly well-educated adults debating the merits of “Spongebob Squarepants” vs. “Sesame Street.”
