A2A with Bill Holter

80

Just a great call earlier today illustrating why we host these webinars in the first place. Bill spent nearly an hour answering a wide array of questions from a large group of listeners. Great stuff and you should definitely take the time to listen yourself.

Over the course of the call, Bill addresses topics such as:

  • The Greek situation
  • The OCC report last week showing the exponential increase in commodity derivatives
  • Yesterday's internet and system "glitches"
  • How to protect yourself against confiscation and/or confiscatory taxes
  • And much, much more

Again, this is a lenghthy call so break it up into separate sittings if you need to. Just be sure to take the time to give this a thorough listen. You won't be disappointed.

This island was key to immanentize the eschaton in Robert Anton Wilson Illuminatus. It made the news shortly after I read the book..and I got to ask R. A. Wilson how he felt about writing fiction that later became fact. He replied it wasn't the first time. Sorta like Fred Pohl..

Marshall Swing: Commercials Execute MASSIVE REVERSAL On Brutal Short Covering Rout

As of Wednesday, it is 66 DAYS until 29 Elul and the date some are setting for a major global financial crash and 77 days until the DAY OF ATONEMENT, September 23, 2015.

I have officially been announcing publicly that I believe the Day of Atonement, September 23, 2015 as the first day of Daniel’s 70th Week for well over a year now, and the first major broadcast announcement was made on www.TruNews.com here:

http://www.trunews.com/wednesday-july-2-2014-marshall-swing/ and that host was completely stunned I made the announcement on his show. You can sense it in his voice and response.

and the second one here on SilverDoctors broadcast:

https://www.silverdoctors.com/marshall-swing-1-5-quadrillion-in-derivatives-will-collapse-in-2015-entire-financial-system-to-implode-in-an-hour/

and my predictions made publically more than a full 14 months in front of the actual events are still very tightly tracking to make good…

You do not have much time left. Get ready!

Still reporting from the Wilderness of Southern Illinois, stay thirsty for physical metal, my friends,

How Derivatives Will Steal

How Derivatives Will Steal Your Bank Account (Someday)

BY IWB · JULY 6, 2015

Share3 Tweet23 0 Share0

Yes, Interbank Derivative bets are secured …

…but your deposits are unsecured.

What this means is that in the event of a bank dissolution, or a major bail-in event, your deposits are among the least of all claims and will therefore suffer the worst haircuts.

Last year the G20 met in Brisbane and agreed upon new bail-in procedures rules, including a new structure for who is first in line to be reamed and who is last. Spoiler alert: derivatives are secured and your deposit(s) is (are) unsecured.

The only rational thing to do would be prevent banks with insured deposits from trading in derivatives but the second largest criminal outfit in America made sure that good idea got killed:

Citigroup Wrote the Wall Street Giveaway The House Just Approved

Dec 10, 2014

A year ago, Mother Jones reported that a House bill that would allow banks like Citigroup to do more high-risk trading with taxpayer-backed money was written almost entirely by Citigroup lobbyists. The bill passed the House in October 2013, but the Senate never voted on it. For months, it was all but dead. Yet on Tuesday night, the Citi-written bill resurfaced. Lawmakers snuck the measure into a massive 11th-hour government funding bill that congressional leaders negotiated in the hopes of averting a government shutdown. President Barack Obama is expected to sign the legislation.

“This is outrageous,” says Marcus Stanley, the financial policy director at the advocacy group Americans for Financial Reform. “This is to benefit big banks, bottom line.”

As I reported last year, the bill eviscerates a section of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform act called the “push-out rule”:

Banks hate the push-out rule…because this provision will forbid them from trading certain derivatives (which are complicated financial instruments with values derived from underlying variables, such as crop prices or interest rates). Under this rule, banks will have to move these risky trades into separate non-bank affiliates that aren’t insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and are less likely to receive government bailouts. The bill would smother the push-out rule in its crib by permitting banks to use government-insured deposits to bet on a wider range of these risky derivatives.

The Citi-drafted legislation will benefit five of the largest banks in the country—Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo. These financial institutions control more than 90 percent of the $700 trillion derivatives market. If this measure becomes law, these banks will be able to use FDIC-insured money to bet on nearly anything they want. And if there’s another economic downturn, they can count on a taxpayer bailout of their derivatives trading business.

In May 2013, the New York Times reported that Citigroup’s proposed language was reflected in more than 70 lines of the House financial services committee’s 85-line bill. Mother Jones was the first to publish the document showing that Citigroup lobbyists had drafted most of the legislation.

I really don’t know how any of this could be made any clearer. The banks are now behaving like out of control sociopaths; they want massive, easy profits during the good times and they want you to pay for their mistakes the rest of the time.

And how does the banking system react when some upstart like Greece comes along and threatens to expose the whole sordid scam for what it is and refuse to play along any more?

They run the equivalent of a carpet bombing campaign on the whole population, the elderly, the infirm, the very young and the able-bodied alike:

Sunday’s referendum will take place under a kind of financial warfare not seen in the history of modern states. The Greek government was forced to close its banks after the European Central Bank, whose job is technically to keep them open, refused to do so. The never-taxed and never-registered broadcasters of Greece did the rest, spreading panic, and intensifying it where it had already taken hold.

When the prime minister made an urgent statement live on the state broadcaster, some rival, private news channels refused to cut to the live feed. Greek credit cards ceased to work abroad. Some airlines cancelled all ticketing arrangements with the country. Some employers laid off their staff. One told them they would be paid only if they turned up at an anti-government demonstration. Martin Schulz, the socialist president of the European parliament, called for the far-left government to be replaced by technocrats. And the Council of Europe declared the referendum undemocratic.

With ATM cash limited to €60 a day, one shopkeeper described the effect on her customers: on day one, panic buying; day two, less buying; day three, terror; day four, frozen. The words you find yourself using in reports, after looking into the eyes of pensioners and young mothers, make the parallel with conflict entirely justified: terror, fear, flight, panic, uncertainty, sleeplessness, anxiety, disorientation.

If the effect was to terrorise the population, it has only half worked. The pollsters are simply finding what Greek political scientists already know: society is divided, deeply and psychologically, between left and right.

It’s really quite shameful and humans had better up their game if we want any sort of a future. I mean, if this is what we do to ourselves, how are we going to save enough of the ocean’s fish for other forms of life, or tend to our soils properly?

I know that it is only the actions of a few that are this terrible, but they happen to be in charge.

I rather imagine that if we were smarter we’d understand that the most seriously wounded among us, those who had just desperate and horrible childhoods with disconnected and unloving parents, are the ones most likely to be drawn towards power.

If the ‘rulers’ seem to be evil, it may simply be that they lack compassion because they are hopelessly damaged inside. I’m sure there are productive jobs and possible treatments for such people, but they should not be formulating national or foreign policy, for goodness sake!

School letter threatens parents with call to DHS

SALEM, Ore. —

The principal of a Salem, Oregon, elementary school is apologizing for a letter sent to parents that said the school will call DHS if parents don’t pick up their children on time each day.

KIRO 7 affiliate KOIN 6 News was given the June 24 dated letter from a parent at Swegle Elementary School.

In the letter it said:

“Children must be picked up on time. If they are not picked up on time, we will call DHS and you will then have to pick them up at court the next day.”

An official with the school district said the principal is apologizing for the letter and will likely draft a new, corrected letter explaining what went wrong.

President Obama Accepts

President Obama Accepts Slavery in Order to Win TPP Trade Deal

Jul 9, 2015 4 Comments

Eric Zuesse

So that U.S. President Barack Obama can end a roadblock and win the agreement of other nations for his proposed Trans Pacific Partnership, he has decided to remove one of the nations, Malaysia, from the U.S. State Department’s official list of countries that allow slavery. Malaysia, which recently found over a hundred graves of discarded slaves, has been on the U.S. State Department’s “Tier 3” list of slave nations, along with North Korea, Zimbabwe, Syria, and Iran, but, unlike those other countries, Obama wants Malaysia to be included in his Trans Pacific Partnership; so, he has decided to remove Malaysia from that official list.

This was first reported by Reuters on July 8th, under the headline “Exclusive: U.S. Upgrades Malaysia in Annual Human Trafficking Report.” Reuters announced: “The United States is upgrading Malaysia from the lowest tier on its list of worst human trafficking centers, U.S. sources said on Wednesday, a move that could smooth the way for an ambitious U.S.-led free-trade deal with the Southeast Asian nation and 11 other countries.”

Zach Carter at Huffington Post headlined, later on July 8th, “Obama To Upgrade Malaysia On Human Rights Despite Mass Graves,” and he reported that U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) issued a statement saying: “If true, this manipulation of Malaysia’s ranking in the State Department’s 2015 TIP report would be a perversion of the trafficking list and undermine both the integrity of this important report as well as the very difficult task of confronting states about human trafficking.”
