Can the Banks Collapse Completely, With a Public that’s Fiat Entrenched?
Unfortunately, when considering in the short run, the answer is most likely “NO”. For those of us in the US, most “needs” based products are imported, so payment will be left to the only thing we have left for payment, fiat paper. Which of course is held at our friendly Wall Street shyster bank. And as mentioned many many times here @ ‘roguemoney.net’ since the importers of our needs based goods are also holding our debt, which is becoming worthless, we will have to suffer some form of currency devaluations to satisfy our trade needs. Needs, we will soon be forced to pay up for, since fiat King Dollar toilet paper is the only thing most will have to meet their obligations at the World’s import trade windows.
Banks survive by the public’s need for them, and sadly we need them. INITIALLY, that is!
As one of my favorite Wolfpack associates says, we have two alternatives; learn to live without money and or have hard assets on hand to barter with. Since very few people in the west have made those preparations, banks will still exist because currency will be needed. But not forever. Therefore, and I hate to say this, most of us will still need the banksters. This should give you enough motivation to make your own preparations so you can avoid these criminals entirely. “Get out of the system” should be the rallying cry…!
So why bring up this very depressing fact? In order to understand the cure, you have to understand the actual diagnosis or nature of the illness. After a brief review of the news, we will also take a close look at Professor Rob Kirby’s insights in a great interview. Finally, I want to get in the face of the economic doctors in the alternative media, and start humbly flushing their apologies down the toilet. More in a second…..
A US Citizen Personal Aside: As mentioned by The Wolf many times before, it is humbling to be conversing with the contributors here @ Rogue Money. Especially when you consider the credentials of our sideline coach & mentor “W”, but even talking with him is not as humbling as a routine encounter with some solid American citizens. A couple of days ago I needed to make a stop by the local “home improvement store”, and the lady at the checkout counter looked at my t-shirt, and said, “Did you know that might have been an inside job?”
Actually I had to look down at my shirt to see what the hell was on it. “The Twin Towers with an Eagle”. Well well well. I detect another alert inquiring mind, in search of the “Truth”. I told her to check out ‘roguemoney.net’, as I thought she would like the subject matter. I know what you are thinking, big deal WG. And all I can say is, yes indeed, it is a big deal. Aside from the fact she reminded me of Wolf Grayette, she didn’t know me from Adam’s house cat, and therefore had no clue what my response would have been. In fact, had I been in her shoes, the best I would have done is “checked the old fart out and moved on to the next person in the check out line.” The numbers of people questioning the status quo’s message is growing, it would appear.
The “wake up calls” continue, and the Trump movement, like him or not, has some teeth to it. Again, prepare yourselves. After all, it’s only you that can properly fill the job description.
News that is Becoming Redundant, but Illuminating
It looks like the WWE has a new ‘tag team’ combination ready to cripple anything productive that gets in their way, check this out….
As RM regulars know, the reason the PPPTB (paper pushing powers that be) might attempt the headlined helicopter suicide maneuver. To prop up the phony equity markets, for just a few ‘tic-tics’ more, post the Brexit statement of “NWO FAILURE”. Which brings us to the next news item with a theoretical question tied to it.
Might the US’s fiat money printing path to failure have started several decades ago, when their ‘lap dog’ Japan went down the road to an experiment in moronic “Yen expansion”? It ain’t called “the Yen carry trade for nothing”. I smell an ESF pile of mastodon dung somewhere. Need I mention that in a prior installment you could trace back the morning “up-trends” in the western markets by rescues from the “Lap Dog”? And as detailed once before, remember where the “Lap Dog” has been seen lately?….With Mr. Putin. A transition is clearly taking place, and the King Dollar is not a part of the transition, unless you want to consider the negative direction.
Now we have that piece of cow flop Bernanke meeting with Kuroda, why not send the magic Munchkin, Mrs. Yellen? Hmm, maybe so no one can lay blame for this soon to be monster failure on an acting FED wizard. “Theoretical” my arse. It’s called cya (cover your arse), and it appears that the only option on the PPPTB table is to carry the game to the very final second of the Moore’s Law Economic collapse (see prior installment).
Don’t look now fascist fiat NWO pecker heads, the people are starting to catch on!
In the Wolf Gray’s “you can’t make this crap up category” this week, check this out this headline from ZeroHedge……
ZeroHedge best be careful with their WG-ish cynicism, on display in this excerpt form the above link……….
Judging by the 12% jump in the stock on the news, perhaps if STX had not stopped there and had instead fired 50%, or maybe all employees, it may have even doubled in after hours trading. ZH
After all, Seagate may read ZeroHedge and get some ideas about assisting some future attacks on the BLS numbers. In fact, for some proof that the equity markets have become true “window dressing”, check out the next bit of wisdom from BoA (Bank of America)……
The Wolf smells a game plan to keep paper investments in a very controlled docile state, before corralling your funds into the US bond markets. Don’t sweat it though, it is just a way to protect you, of course. A prediction we discussed from long ago, one that is even made legal via some language in the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform & Consumer Protection Act. Want a clue? It is nearing a climax event, an event necessary to make you believe it is the best thing for your investments. Do race riots and political chaos happen when things are just peachy-keen on main-street USA? You be the judge…!
In need of more proof? Check the fund outflows numbers in the face of a rising equity market now establishing new all time highs. As harped on before, don’t be fooled by the media noise. Maintain your focus, the corralling act is continuing unabated.
Wolf, your mystical theories need some substance. And to that I say, here is Charles Hugh Smith followed by David Stockman….
As always, great analysis from Mr. Smith. But one thing is left out, and seems to always be left out, “dark money” by the ESF. The assumption that trends of volatility, and some form of perverted supply & demand, are now leading the markets to a ‘no where to go but down’ scenario. A decline in the standard of living, is only part of the story. Unnatural fuel entered “Economic Mother Nature’s” engines, and it is now being spit out, but the good stuff, the real stuff, is finally taking control.
A ‘re-boot/re-set’ is a forgone conclusion soon to be witnessed, and in fact it is being witnessed, but only visible to those with an open mind and a thirst for the truth. The standard of living decline headlined in the photo to this piece by Mr. Smith is a lock, and will be the driving force to final recognition of the western fiat paper failure that is upon us now. The new sputtering engine with the wrong fuel in it is the world’s equity & debt markets, while “Economic Mother Nature” is getting ready to gulp down some high octane super fuel, GSBC’s (gold & silver bars & coins). Don’t get caught in her path, she is pissed.
The formula is simple. The nation’s with natural resource distribution channels and contracts, and/or a good manufacturing base will have a shot at stemming the decline in their living standards, especially if they have one insurance policy in good supply. GSBC’s….! Wolf Gray
The times we are living in are exciting, and the reporting on it is getting boring and redundant. Yours truly included. There is just not much left to say except prepare yourselves. Only the news items change, the message is still the same.
In the next link I am not even going to try and over analyze Mr. Stockman’s analysis on the bogus BLS practices. He blows them up big time check this out…..
I do have to pull one excerpt from his work though….
Janet Yellen and the other 100 clowns who run the world’s central banks, of course, have no clue as to the financial doomsday machine they have enabled. Indeed, they apparently think efficient pricing and allocation of capital doesn’t matter. David Stockman
To that I say bingo, though I still say the magic munchkin is nothing more than the mouthpiece for the monolithic meaningless structure that is the FED, a front for the US Treasury in the form of the ESF. A much more powerful force than the buffoonish spokesperson from the FED.
Special thanks to Mr. Smith & Mr Stockman for shedding light on dark subjects, as the PPPTB’s goal is to keep us in the dark. And though I can’t see the aforementioned authors rocking out to this next musical message, it still potentially fits well. Listen if you so choose……Deny the dark side, and don’t be captured, we don’t need them, they need us….!
You never listen to the voices inside
They fill your ears as you run to a place to hide
You’re never sure if the illusion is real
You pinch yourself but the memories are all you feel
Can you break away from your alibis
Can you make a play, will you meet me in the dark Billy Squier
In recent installments I have harped on natural farming being the rebound industry in the US. Or it at least, it needs to be in order to get back to an honest system. GMO crap is far from honest. With that in mind, check out these next couple agricultural economic signs….Regarding the headline below, just when would you have expected Russia to pass the US as the number one exporter of wheat in the world? 2016, with sanctions to boot, is rather impressive. Check out the following RT link…….
Add that link to the link from last week highlighting some news from the “health ranger” Mike Adams, and one has to ask, “can we be any dumber?” …….Here is last weeks installment link related to that article.
Regarding a rehash of the above link, “just what is the importance of it’s message WG?” How about we are being poisoned, by our own food resources….! Check out this next article from “New Eastern Outlook”….
Here is an interesting excerpt that tells it like it is….
After introducing food import bans against Turkey in November 2015, President Putin declared, “Russia is able to become the world’s largest supplier of healthy, ecologically clean and high-quality food, which Western producers have long lost.” Russia last year also announced a complete ban on planting GMO crops or importing GMO crops from the West.
Images of John “the potato spud king” Kerry come to mind trying to jam GMO foods down the Russian’s throats. As highlighted before, I expect smart Americans to make demands for healthy natural products. And if it has to come from elsewhere, well what would you want going into your kids, and grand-kids mouths? A renaissance in honest farming, and natural product development is what I expect to be demanded soon by most Americans. Especially post the King Dollar collapse/demise. Can we really afford for it not to be, especially if we are to be respected at the tables of negotiation with other potential foreign trade partners?
Just imagine expecting a negotiations victory as you bring well publicized toxic food to the table for the rest of the world to enjoy? Yeah, that’s the ticket, that will work. Think about it, we were number one in wheat export, now ironically passed by the country we put on sanctions. Somebody doesn’t want our crap that’s for sure, sanctions or not. Anyone getting the message? We better!
I got an idea…let’s take a step back in time, and check out standard western PPPTB business strategies…..Strategies that are on display in the following link from two years ago…..I give you the BNP Paribas farce…..
Here is a simple business solution for the US mental midgets: quit executing law suits against foreign banks who try to do business with the Russians. It ain’t working. What would you do, continue conducting business with the guys trying to sell you food that will kill your kids? To boot it all, doing business with the same clowns who sued one of your country’s largest financial institutions..! Or would you do business with a land mass neighbor. A neighbor who seems to suffer from a lone weakness, they want to do honest business with you while avoiding poisoning you, and not throwing blood sucking attorneys on your doorsteps?
Can we be any dumber? Yes we could. We could decide to execute terror attacks on our own soil to put the citizenry in a state of shock and fear. Might we do that? I will let you be the judge based on the latest in news headlines. And then, I am forced to weather the storm of people asking me, “Wolf, why do you claim we will be isolated?” Oh, I am sorry, I don’t know what I was thinking, amazing! If it were to be asked at a neat guy & neat gal party (note I never attend those type shin-digs)……then maybe I would point this out…..
As discussed many times thus far this year, the “Leisure & Hospitality” industries will start to roll over, and though restaurants aren’t 100% tied to them, they are part n’ parcel to those sorts of monetary “wants” based product. As mentioned at the first of 2016, “Leisure & Hospitality” industries rolling over would be one of the final signs that we are nearing a significant King Dollar demise/collapse moment. Additionally, it was predicted at the beginning of the year that we will probably be seeing that by the spring of 2017. Time will tell, but here is a link with more proof folks…..
Clearly the “wants” pocket books are starting to be more frugal. A wise move by the way, but if those being frugal haven’t made any other preparations to date for a King Dollar demise/collapse than just cutting back on their unneeded eating expenses, then they will soon be served as canary ‘a la carte’ at the “Hard Asset Mine”. The “restaurant mine” where real money talks and you know what walks…FIAT PAPER..! Wolf Gray
Along the same lines of what the neat guy & neat gal types think will always work in the world of money, real estate, check this out…..
So my question is, if the foreigners have finally called it quits on US real estate, just who is going to keep the upward price listing gravy train going? I got the answer, “No one!” Housing is going to eventually get beat to a pulp. It may not be a lock, but it has a good 90 to 1 odds.
This next item from Clif High is truly interesting. And even if it doesn’t come true, the fact that the linguistics data sets have chatter of this sort coming through, says fiat is in big trouble. The ole saying, “where there is smoke there is fire” comes to mind. By the way, paper fairs poorly in fire!
In this next video, one segment hits on something we have been harping on @‘roguemoney.net’ for several years….
