What is the Real Danger?

Thu, Aug 14, 2014 - 12:31am

Looking at today's headlines, whether mainstream press or alternatives such as zerohedge and the other terrific independent blogs, instantly creates an imminent sensation that the world is in turmoil, to say the least. No one can rationally debate that point. I write this following Robin Williams' death by suicide, and I want to try to have a conversation about some things that we just do not address too much here in this space. No, it is not a sappy piece, or a political piece, ala Rush Limbaugh. Nothing of the sort. Let's look at it from a different angle.

But, let's drill down and do what I love to do: let's compare things for perspective.

On one side of the globe, we have the traditional Western Civilization. It is beyond dispute that such civilization is governed by central powers, ostensibly selected through independent and legitimate voting of the citizenry, resulting in policy debates between the titans and their ilk, whether government or banking, each clashing for dominance. At its core, banking, through fiat paper currency, is the critical institution. Without it, power disperses to the people. Control of the banking has resulted in control of the masses. Again, this point cannot reasonably be debated.

Now, let us contrast this with the rest of the globe.

In the developing world, which many will agree is generally comprised of those places other than Europe and North America, perhaps parts of Asia, such as Latin America, Africa, and as well, parts of Asia, and the Middle East in particular and eastward in general, those parts of the world are just not at the same stage of progress as is found in Western Civilization. This point is what defines the difference for our comparison purposes in this thought exercise.

Now having these two conceptually different societies in mind, let us ask some questions. One comes readily to mind: which society is more dangerous to an individual from the perspective of shortened life expectancy?

That necessarily requires a definition of dangerous. Dangerous as I use it means anything that unnaturally shortens one's lifespan, whether physically, mentally, or otherwise.

Western Civilization:

There are tons of statistics and data. Go on a quest and read if one wants to fall asleep. Here is one source:

https://gallery.mailchimp.com/de3259be81e52e95191ab7806/files/HAG2013.pdf

What is the number one killer?

Here are the others:

  • Cancer: 576,691
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 142,943
  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 128,932
  • Accidents (unintentional injuries): 126,438
  • Alzheimer's disease: 84,974
  • Diabetes: 73,831
  • Influenza and Pneumonia: 53,826
  • Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 45,591
  • Intentional self-harm (suicide): 39,518

But, I noticed some things were missing. What are the number of deaths from war or war related mental distress? What about drug overdoses, or drug abuse (from illegal drugs or otherwise)? What about homelessness and death caused from abusing one's body as a result of being homeless?

Looking at the list, physical trauma (accidents and intentional self harm) accounts for ten percent of the deaths, on a rough estimate, while diseases of the body and mind are the overwhelming causes of death.

So we have advanced in the Western Civilization to the point that we don't die off as rapidly as our predecessors did, or from the same physical trauma-related reasons, but is our modern lifestyle equally dangerous to our longevity as the physical trauma-related causes of death were to our ancestors?

What about the third world countries, or the developing countries? Is it better to have a functioning electric grid, only to die from cancer from the PCB's used in generating the power? Is the fast-paced nature of modern civilization overstressing the capability of the body to handle stress to the point that disease and mental instability result? Where is the balancing point?

I write this post as we are approaching the end of the Keynesian experiment. Clearly, the world is becoming more hostile. People are dying, from atrocious, unspeakable horrors, and the world is now witnessing the onset of a new global pandemic, that does not discriminate, Ebola. How can the health care providers fall ill at an ever-increasing hyperbolic rate and yet those in charge say all is contained? Is this the same "containment" that Bernanke referenced when he said that subprime home loans were contained?

It is time to ask piercing questions, and not accept the trite, status quo responses from those in charge.

We see first hand news accounts of the militarization of the police forces, ironically in Ferguson, MO, of all places. We need only look and listen, and realize that this that we see and hear could be our very own communities when there is a spark of anger that flashes into community outrage.

Things are not "contained." Western Civilization is not "recovering." We are only completing the trajectory set into motion in 1914. Pay attention.

Things are converging rapidly. The spread of untreatable disease. War. Initiation of hostilities in formerly, supposedly, "mission accomplished" former theaters of war. Radical, violent extremists, openly antagonistic, without shame or fear, taunting those in the west. How could this be if all was contained?

So, back to the initial question: which society is more dangerous?

In classic lawyer-speak, well, "it depends."

I am so glad that Chris Martenson wrote his fantastic piece. Thanks to Mr. TF for letting us all share it. He lays it out pretty well. There is the hegemon, and there is everyone else. Those that have resources, are at risk, meaning those people in places where the hegemon seeks to take resources, best be wary. The hegemon will not invade, no, far from it. They will come bearing gifts, IMF, loans, US multinational corporations, all there to take resources. Understand that, and do not stand in their way, for they have drones and other implements of danger. Those that have energy, they can exist peacefully, so long as they never, ever, not once, threaten to turn away from the US dollar. Keeping that in mind, the people of those energy-rich countries are just pawns, and have no real choices. For them, stay out of the way, and live a simple, long life.

For everyone else, in the western civilization, well, about the only thing one can do is be vigilant. Mental challenges will overtake even the best of us. Physical ailments, whether heart disease, or diet-based problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, etc., will all take their toll, too. So, get ahead of the problems, and try to avoid them. Study, learn, ask questions, be a contrarian, politely, and, in keeping with our mindset of being prepared for the end of the Keynesian experiment, under no circumstances draw attention.

For anyone I see, I tell them the following things, in no particular order, but in a manner in which I believe they are receptive to understanding, without scaring them:

(1) Get healthy. Eat better foods, eliminate fake foods, at all costs. Go Paleo. I did, for the past two years, and have never felt better.

(2) Eliminate big pharma. I take NOTHING. Not even Advil. Nothing. At. All. Nada. How can that be? Well, I do not drink alcohol. That for me was a major life choice, and one I HAD to make out of sincere moment of honesty. For me, it was an EASY choice, one I made repeatedly for many years but finally just had enough to say enough. I don't smoke, and I find no use for intoxicants at all. Since I eat Paleo, I need NO drugs of any kind for heart condition, high blood pressure, etc. I have reset all my genes, and am back to the normal, natural way of life. Good, healthy food choices are essential. It all starts there.

(3) Seek balance, in all areas: physical, mental, and spiritual. Enough said there, I hope.

(4) Seek financial security, not financial wealth. Chasing wealth to chase wealth, is deadly. Seek financial security in the form of food, shelter, family, and let the rest take care of itself. Keeping up with the Jones' only leads to shortened life expectancy.

(5) Share. I mean both physical goods, and knowledge. Develop a network, and grow the network into a group of like-minded, healthy friends and associates.

(6) Eliminate negativity. Lose the bad friends who are dragging the situation down. Stop spending time with that loser family member who is a mess. Find new friends to replace the losers. Seriously. Stop watching television. For real. One's mental health improves dramatically, almost instantly.

(7) Find an outlet for stress of modern living. Exercise, read, sit and contemplate, heck, shoot targets or steel. It matters not. Find a hobby, and dive in. An outlet is essential in this modern age. Prepping is both and outlet and a cause of stress. Find some thing else besides prepping. The more outlets one has, the less one needs to be plugged in all the time, and the less one ends up worrying. Stress decreases exponentially at first, when one finds the proper outlet. I run ultramarathons. It is very relaxing for me, but that sort of physical undertaking is not for everyone. Duh.

(8) Give back. This is different than sharing. Giving back means one does it anonymously. That is enormously enjoying, and destressing all at the same time.

(9) Stop worrying. Human beings adapted. We will continue to adapt. If shit hits the fan, we will adapt. Relax. Heck, come to my place. I will hook you up with some chores, and we will see how much energy you have left with which to worry!

(10) Find a purpose. Stop working, and instead conduct ones' self with purpose. Paying bills to support a family is purposeful. That is to be commended. But, working on a Saturday, and missing one's kid's ball game to generate a report for the boss on Monday is wasteful. Either get it done during the week, or get a new job. Work with a purpose.

Stay under the radar, acquire useful skills and materiel, and prepare accordingly.

Banks to return 2.86 billion euros in crisis loans to ECB next w

Banks will return 2.861 billion euros (2 billion pounds) in long-term loans to the European Central Bank next week after the ECB started to charge for holding banks' excess cash overnight and promised more long-term loans.

The amount that banks will repay on Aug. 20 is less than this week's crisis-loan repayments of 4.15 billion euros and misses the 4.0 billion forecast in a Reuters poll.

The ECB cut interest rates to record lows in June - the deposit rate to below zero - and took several steps to boost lending to euro zone companies. It also pledged to do more if needed to fight off the risk of Japanese-style deflation.

The measures include a new four-year loan scheme, which the ECB hopes will encourage banks to boost their lending.

Banks continue to repay LTRO funds they took from the ECB in late 2011 and early 2012 as they are going through ECB health checks, which are in their final stages now with a Europe-wide bank stress test.

On Friday, the ECB said two banks would repay 300 million euros from the first LTROs on Aug. 20 and six banks would pay back 2.561 billion from the second LTRO.

Greek Ministry sys ‘no’ to debt collection agencies

Greece is to continue to resist calls from the International Monetary Fund to have a private collection agency to chase up millions of euros in unpaid social security contributions.

The IMF suggested in its most recent report that a private company should be formed to monitor these debts and take action to recover them when necessary. IMF officials have continued to press the Greek government on the subject since then but the Interior Ministry has refused to give ground even though the money owed by individuals and businesses is spiraling.

A total of around 18 billion euros is owed at the moment. This includes debts of 9.1 billion to the social security fund for the self-employed (OAEE) and 8.5 billion to Greece’s main social security foundation, IKA.

The government, however, believes that the recently created Center for the Collection of Social Security Arrears (KEAO) is able to fulfill the task without the need for debt collection agencies to become involved. KEAO sends out two warnings to debtors and if it has no response 20 days after the second notice, it begins the process of trying to recover the money.

At the moment there are around 210,000 debtors and KEAO has sent out 93,406 second notices. It has begun the process of collecting around 1.1 billion euros in dues. The notices it sent out led to people owing around 600 million euros arranging payment plans with authorities and those owing a total of 143 million euros paying their debts in full.

However, the IMF is unhappy that Greece has not fulfilled its commitment to staff KEAO with 250 employees yet. The fund does not believe this target will be reached before the end of September. It also suggests that another 200 employees will have to be hired on top of the 250.

The IMF suggests that KEAO should be given full access to the details of taxpayers’ assets currently held by tax offices and that any tax returns to individuals or businesses who are behind on social security contributions should be withheld so they can be used to reduce their debts to the funds.

JPM and Madoff

Nice!!

https://jpmadoff.com/site-purpose/

Bernie Madoff committed the biggest financial crime in history. He stole $64.8 billion from tens of thousands of innocent people from countries all over the world. But he did not do this alone. In fact, he could not have done this alone. He needed the assistance of a major bank that could service his needs and he needed to be sure that the bank would conceal his criminal activities.

This was a pretty tall order because, ever since the 1970 enactment of the Bank Secrecy Act, American banks have been required to scrutinize their customers’ activities to assure that they are not acting illegally and the banks have been required, by law, to train their personnel to identify illegal conduct and to report it to the federal government.

JPMorgan Chase is one of the biggest banks in the world and you can be sure that they knew about the requirements of the Bank Secrecy Act. But they also knew how much money they could make off Madoff’s criminal activities and so they gave Madoff all of the services that were essential for him to carry out the biggest theft in history. And the folks at JPMorgan Chase looked the other way, every single day for 20 years, as thousands upon thousands of innocent hard-working people lost their life-savings.

And JPMorgan Chase knew exactly who their victims were. There were only 12 people in Madoff’s office who knew what he was doing. And then there were all the people at JPMorgan Chase who knew what he was doing. They knew that tens of billions of dollars of customer money — belonging to upstate New York union pension funds, belonging to charities, belonging to corporate profit-sharing plans — were sent to Madoff for the purpose of Madoff investing that money for the accounts of the customers. They knew this because the checks were deposited at JPMorgan Chase.

The people at JPMorgan Chase also saw what Madoff did with the money: he transferred billions of dollars to his co-conspirators, Norman Levy, Jeffry Picower, and others. He transferred billions of dollars overseas. But he never used any of those billions of dollars to purchase securities. And the people at JPMorgan Chase could see that every single day of the week for 20 years.

And they looked the other way. Despite their legal obligation to know their customer; despite their legal obligation to report suspicious activity to the federal government, the folks at JPMorgan Chase just looked the other way while they profited from Madoff’s crimes. For 20 years, officers of JPMorgan Chase watched as the life savings of tens of thousands of innocent people were stolen.

And what did our government do?

Did it prosecute the individual officers at JPMorgan Chase who were handsomely compensated for keeping Madoff in business for 20 years? No.

Did it put any bankers in jail? No.

Did it take any steps to ensure that the officers at JPMorgan Chase would not do this again? No.

So what did it do?

It allowed JPMorgan Chase to purchase immunity from criminal prosecution of its dishonest officers by paying money to the government and to a fund to compensate some of Madoff’s victims a few pennies on the dollar for their losses. Thus, the victims received practically nothing and the dishonest officers kept all their fat bonuses.

Wouldn’t you like to know why some 18-year-old kid who robs a 7/11 store of $3000 goes to prison, but someone at JPMorgan Chase who helps Madoff steal $64.8 billion just goes to Greenwich in his limousine?

Wouldn’t you like to know why the dishonest officers at JPMorgan Chase, who allowed the Madoff fraud to continue for 20 years under their watch, are still there, ready, willing and able to profit from the dishonesty of other bank customers?

Our criminal justice system is premised on the belief that the only way to discourage financial crimes is to make sure the criminals don’t profit from them. Why are the folks at JPMorgan Chase exempt from that system? Why would our government, and JPMorgan Chase, tolerate dishonesty at a major financial institution? Why would anyone in his right mind (who is not a criminal) bank with JPMorgan Chase?

We are putting together on this website all of the documents you need to make your own determination on this issue. You don’t need to believe us. Read the documents for yourselves.

Who are we?

We are lawyers dedicated to obtaining an appropriate recovery from JPMorgan Chase for the massive losses of thousands of Madoff customers. But it is not just about money.

We are patriotic Americans and we want to be proud of our country and of our country’s financial institutions. And we want to make sure that other people don’t lose their life savings because the people at JPMorgan Chase like to profit from criminal activity.

Our goal is to make JPMorgan Chase own up to its responsibility for sheltering Madoff for 20 years and change its practices so that neither this type of financial fraud, nor the other acts of financial fraud in which JPMorgan Chase has engaged over the recent past — all documented on this website — can ever happen again.

We want JPMorgan Chase to make a pledge to the American people that it will not shelter criminals and that it has zero tolerance for any bank employee that shelters criminals.

We want JPMorgan Chase to fire all dishonest employees and force them to disgorge all the bonuses they were paid by the bank.

What can you do?

If it bothers you that the government doesn’t put Wall Street criminals in jail, and if you want to do something about it, here are some suggestions:

1. Take your money out of JPMorgan Chase. Find a small community bank that doesn’t go in for the fancy bonuses that the Wall Street crowd commits crimes for.

2. Tell your friends to do the same thing.

3. Make sure your pension funds are not at JPMorgan Chase.

4. Tell your political representatives you are sick and tired of elected officials who are controlled by Wall Street lobbyists. Let’s elect people to public office who are not on the Wall Street dole and who will enforce the laws against Wall Street crooks. If there’s room in prison for someone who holds up a 7/11, how come we don’t put Wall Street bankers in prison when the impact of their crimes is to steal tens of millions of dollars from innocent people?

5. Tell your governor you don’t want the State using JPMorgan Chase to bank state pension funds or taxpayer dollars. Let your governor find an honest bank.

6. Write JP Morgan Chase’s CEO, Jamie Dimon, a letter telling him how you feel.

7. Write to your senators and congressmen and tell them how you feel.

8. Just say no. Raise your voice and tell the government that enough is enough. We want an honest government and we want honest financial institutions.

9. Make the world a better place. Boycott JPMorgan Chase.

Book foreward

This is a book about JPMorgan Chase. It is, therefore, a book about greed, corruption, arrogance and power. And it is also a book about Bernie Madoff. Few people realize the link between America’s biggest bank and America’s biggest crook. Our government, which knows about it and should be the most outraged, doesn’t care. Although it announced criminal charges against the bank for two felony violations of the Bank Secrecy Act, it simultaneously entered into a deferred prosecution agreement with the bank, suspending an indictment for two years provided that the bank complies with the law in the future.1 As if JPMorgan Chase, with its armies of high-priced lawyers, didn’t know how to comply with the 1970 Bank Secrecy Act in 44 years. It needs another two years to figure out how to comply with the law!Our government did not require that a single JPMorgan Chase employee face criminal charges . . . or even lose his job. In deferring the indictment against the bank, the United States government may have feared that JPMorgan Chase is too big to fail. But surely JPMorgan Chase, with 240,000 employees, can survive without the handful of officers who sheltered Madoff from the law for 20 years and, as the bank has acknowledged, violated the law.2 Are these officers too rich to jail? How did we become a country where powerful employers can purchase immunity from criminal prosecution for their employees?

Since the government won’t protect you, the purpose of this book is to give you the information you need to protect yourselves: when bankers act like gangsters, you should treat them like gangsters, even if the government won’t. And the last thing you should do is trust them with your money.Madoff could not have stolen $64.8 billion of other people’s money without the complicity of a major financial institution. Madoff was able to get by with a three-person accounting firm working out of a store front in a shopping center in Rockland County, New York. But make no mistake about it. Madoff needed the imprimatur and facilities of a major bank. And JPMorgan Chase stepped up to the plate. Why would the bank do this? Shall we follow the money? Do you have any idea how much money JPMorgan Chase was able to make off the Madoff account? Did you know that Madoff maintained huge balances in his JPMorgan Chase account, reaching $4 billion or more from 2006 on. And do you think the folks at JPMorgan Chase know how to make money off other people’s money? You bet they do.3The facts — which we lay out in this book — compel the conclusion that senior officers of JPMorgan Chase knew that Madoff was misappropriating customer funds and knew who all the victims were. There were 12 people who worked for Madoff who knew about Madoff’s embezzlement of money belonging to innocent investors. Outside of Madoff’s offices, nobody knew — for 20 years. Nobody, that is, except the people at JPMorgan Chase who were responsible to monitor the activities in Madoff’s account. They saw that, from 1986 to December 2008, Madoff deposited into his JPMorgan Chase account approximately $150 billion of funds4 — from upstate New York union pension funds, from charities, from corporate pension plans, from individual I.R.A. accounts. Bank officers knew that Madoff was an SEC-regulated broker who was retained by his customers to purchase securities for them. Yet, they saw no transactions in Madoff’s account indicating that he was purchasing securities for his customers. Instead, billions of dollars went to Madoff’s co-conspirators, or were wired overseas.......

Alas, all paper money ends up

Alas, all paper money ends up in the trash bin at some point. Gold backing disciplines money printers in a manner they can never impose upon themselves. Hewitt's research isn't the only proof, either.

Here's another illustration. Below, you'll see how the dollar's value has changed since 1971. The following index tracks real items like aluminum, cocoa, coffee, copper, corn, cotton, crude oil, gold, heating oil, lean hogs, live cattle, natural gas, nickel, orange juice, silver, soybeans, sugar, unleaded gasoline and wheat:
