11615 Gleaning Prophetic Strong Delusion And The Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo POTUS Clown Shemitah

by amongthenumberedsaints

Self-government is the gift our founding fathers made possible and out of lack of respect for the sacrifices of the past, the constitutional rights of the present and the freedoms of future Americans we allow it to be traded for a comfortable existence. We must stop and truly understand the concept of self-government as it was meant to be and then mentally reconcile that with the current state of our government.

We are parented not represented. We are enslaved with encroaching laws that are demeaning to rational self sufficient adults. And by a legislative body that feeds from our bosom, fights with our fists and has buried us in debt to a foreign body who they sold the rights to our currency. How is this in any way a self-governed society? We have been captured by a group of fraudulent citizens who control our money, our military and have desecrated our constitution. It requires that we take back control and punish these traitors appropriately severe so as to deter any future attempts. This is our obligation, our payback and our paying it forward for the gift that we received but failed initially to respect.

“We Have Been Captured… We Are Parented, Not Represented” 

One wonders just how disappointed Americans are going to be when the hard-data reality hits and the almost record high hopes of rising incomes is dashed on the shores of “unambiguously bad” low oil prices….

“A mistake was made in calculating the number of individuals with effectuated Marketplace enrollments,” said Kevin Griffis, a spokesman for the U.S. Health and Human Services Department. “Individuals who had both Marketplace medical and dental coverage were erroneously counted in our recent announcements,” he said in an e-mail.

The new count puts enrollment short of a 2013 estimate by the Congressional Budget Office, adopted last year as a goal by the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo The Clown administration, that 7 million people would be enrolled this year.

State Department officials denied that Skull&Bones Kerry had apologized for American absence at the march – or that the current event was his way of saying sorry.
But French officials said he had already apologized in private.

America’s absence has received widespread criticism, although Skull&Bones Kerry has contended US officials had been ‘deeply engaged’ with French authorities since the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack.
He said attacking the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo AF#1 Pussy administration was ‘sort of quibbling a little bit’ – despite the White House’s backpedaling.  ‘Our Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland was there and marched, our ambassador was there and marched, many people from the embassy were there and marched,’ Skull&Bones Kerry stated. Skull&Bones Kerry – who couldn’t attend because of existing commitments – told a news conference on Thursday: ‘I don’t feel any other exigencies, other than continuation of our friendship and our responsibilities as good friends and the longest ally in our history, and that’s why I am going.’  But French foreign minister Laurent Fabius – who accompanied Skull&Bones Kerry to view wreaths laid outside the Jewish supermarket targeted in last week’s terror attacks – said today Skull&Bones Kerry had ‘apologized’ for Antichrist NWO Obozo 911 being a confirmed Pussy.

Toe-curling diplomacy: US woos France with hugs, kisses and a VERY awkward rendition of ‘You’ve Got a Antichrist Friend’ by James Taylor to make up for snubbing terror march

Antichrist NWO 666 President Obozo The AF#1 Pussy is being quietly applauded by Antichrist United Nations officials for his agreeing to secretly allow 70,000 Antichrist Muslim refugees to “legally” enter the U.S. as part of the an international resettlement program, according to the political action committee Combat Veterans for Congress. Besides providing these unscreened Antichrist Muslim aliens with green cards, Obozo and his minions are fast tracking them for U.S. citizenship.

The Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo The AF#1 Pussy administration has already provided refuge for more Antichrist Muslims than all the other nations in the world combined. In fact, it’s been proven repeatedly that Antichrist Muslims who have been given citizenship have been arrested for terrorist plots, aiding and abetting terrorist acts, providing material support to terrorist groups, and some have even returned overseas to fight American armed forces.

According to officials with Combat Veterans for Congress, “It is very dangerous for the National Security interest of the United States to issue social security numbers and work permits for 5 million Illegal aliens and fast track 70,000 Antichrist Muslim refugees for U.S. citizenship without doing the in proper depth background investigations on each individual, in order to determine if they are convicted felons, involved in drug smuggling, and to determine if they have terrorist ties. The Antichrist Obozo 911 administration seems to be approving one program after another that is destabilizing the national security interest of the republic.”

Two men were hurled from the top of a tower block, two more were crucified in front of a baying crowd and a woman was stoned to death in the latest series of horrific executions by Antichrist ISIS.
The men were thrown from the roof down to the crowd below in the brutal punishment for being gay.
Charges found against the accused were announced by a masked Antichrist Islamic State fighter, using a small handheld radio. Reading from a list, he declares the men are guilty of engaging in homosexual activities and should be punished by death, in accordance with Antichrist Islamic State’s radical interpretation of Antichrist Sharia law.

Back in Sept. 2012, then-White House Press Secretary Jay Carney criticized Charlie Hebdo for its publication of cartoon images lampooning Mohammad. He said, according to White House Dossier:
Well, we are aware that a French magazine published cartoons featuring a figure resembling the Prophet Muhammad, and obviously, we have questions about the judgment of publishing something like this. We know that these images will be deeply offensive to many and have the potential to be inflammatory. But we’ve spoken repeatedly about the importance of upholding the freedom of expression that is enshrined in our Constitution. It’s obvious that the White House, as of Monday, hasn’t backed off from this position. The First Amendment, as it pertains to the press’ reporting and analyzing of events, provides, “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom … of the press….”
But over and above those rights that are guaranteed and protected under the Constitution, something else is at play here — something advanced by Ross Douthat in his Jan. 7 New York Times commentary:
“If a large enough group of someone is willing to kill you for saying something, then it’s something that almost certainly needs to be said, because otherwise the violent have veto power over liberal civilization, and when that scenario obtains it isn’t really a liberal civilization any more….”
Stated differently, when journalists back off of a story or sanitize its reporting and commentary of events out of fear of terrorist attacks, the terrorists have already won.

White House: Antichrist NWO Obozo give aid and comfort to Antichrist Muslim Jihadist by claiming he will restrict on his own, as an Emperor, the ”free” media’s reporting of anti-jihad articles

Recently ANP pointed out the connections bewteen the US, Saudi Arabia, the Charlie Hebdo massacre and ISIS and now we see another major report which adds more pieces to the jigsaw puzzle, showing that the US is indeed, not only supporting terrorist groups, but is continuing to actively use the US Military to train our attackers!

Starting with the new report from USA Today, headlined with “400 U.S. troops will deploy to train Syrian opposition,” which provides details, confirmed by Defense officials, that US troops will be training Syrian “rebels” out of sites in Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar, as ” part of the overall campaign to defeat the Islamic State militants who seized large swaths of Syria and Iraq.” The USA Today was citing an AP article with that last quote.

What both the AP article and the USA Today article neglected to mention, thinking it fell down the memory hole of the internet, was that reports as far back as 2012 proved conclusively that Syrian “rebels” not only joined a pact with ISIS to not attack them but many of it’s members, trained BY THE US, joined the terrorist group after said training.

IBT from June 2014:

As the American government is contemplating on whether or not to launch an airstrike on ISIS that is threatening to destroy Iraq, reports have now surfaced that way back in 2012, the US Army had trained members of the same terrorist group in Jordan.

As per several corroborated reports, hundreds of ISIS militia were indeed trained by US instructors for covert operations to destabilize Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government, though the training was strictly for Syria.

Other major media groups such as Agence France-Presse, Huffington Post, RT, just to name a few, all provided information on the Syrian “rebels” connection with ISIS, their agreement and pacts with them, yet now the US is sending 400 more troops, and their “enablers” to quote the USA Today article, to train more.

As recently as December 25, 2014, Syrian National Coalition representative to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Adib Al-Shishakli, warned that “Moderate Syrian opposition fighters are increasingly joining the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) for financial reasons.” A July 8, 2014 report shows that a 1,000 strong Syrian Rebel brigade defected to ISIS.

ISIS has threatened to attack the west time and time again, has claimed to have hacked into the CENTCOM mobile devices then splashed personal information from those intrusions onto the CENTCOM social media accounts of Twitter and YouTube, threatened to burn NY, and much more, yet the US claims they are trying to destroy them out of one side of their mouth, while at the same time actively training the very people that are joining the group.

The US and their “allies” are funding ISIS, training them, arming them at the same time claiming to fight them………. Anyone else see a problem with this picture?

PROOF! Antichrist NWO 666 US Team Obozo Sending Troops To Train Antichrist ISIS Terrorist Group! 

According to several sources at the Thursday summit in Baltimore, Obozo vowed to defend his agenda against Republicans in Congress, promised to stand firm against GOP efforts to dismantle his agenda and called on his Democratic colleagues to help sustain his expected vetoes. The president also was explicit over his administration’s opposition to an Iran sanctions bill, promising to veto legislation with his administration in the midst of multilateral nuclear negotiations with the Middle Eastern regime..


Israel said Thursday that Sweden’s foreign minister was not welcome for an official visit in the country, with relations strained over Stockholm’s recognition of Palestine. The minister, Margot Wallstroem, last week postponed a trip to Israel indefinitely, with Israeli media reports suggesting that Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman did not want to meet her.

Israel says Swedish FM not welcome 

Sweden’s decision in October to recognise the state of Palestine — the first major EU nation to do so — infuriated Israel, which temporarily recalled its ambassador to Stockholm. “Do not wait to travel to Israel until the Swedish foreign minister comes here, because that could take a long time,” Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon told public broadcaster Swedish Radio.

“The Swedish foreign minister would not have been given any official meetings in Israel if she had travelled here. What Sweden did was an utterly unfriendly action,” Nahshon added

Friday/Saturday, January 17, 2015: I appeared (Va’ era) 

Scientist across the globe are balking at recent claims by NOAA and NASA that 2014 was the warmest year on record. Here are a few quotes from them, undermining global warming theories as well as dispelling warnings about runaway emissions:

ICE AGE NOW: Scientists Balk At “Hottest Year” Claims – Says NOAA And NASA Ignored Satellites Showing 18 Year “PAUSE”; “We Are Arguing Over The Significance Of Hundredths Of A Degree”; The “PAUSE” Continues! 

Climate Depot’s Marc Morano issued this statement: “There are dueling global datasets — surface temperature records and satellite records — and they disagree. The satellites show an 18 year plus global warming ‘standstill and the satellite was set up to be “more accurate” than the surface records. See: Flashback: 1990 NASA Report: ‘Satellite analysis of upper atmosphere is more accurate, & should be adopted as the standard way to monitor temp change.’

Any temperature claim of “hottest year” based on surface data is based on hundredths of a degree hotter than previous “hottest years”. This immeasurable difference is not even within the margin of error of temperature gauges. The claim of the “hottest year” is simply a political statement not based on temperature facts. “Hottest year” claims are based on minute fractions of a degree while ignoring satellite data showing Earth is continuing the 18 plus year ‘pause’ or ‘standstill’. See: The Great Pause lengthens again: Global temperature update: The Pause is now 18 years 3 months (219 months)

Asteroid 2004 BL86 to safely flyby Earth on January 26  

NASA’s Near-Earth Object Wide-field Survey Explorer or NEOWISE spacecraft, a space telescope that scans the skies for asteroids and comets, discovered and characterized 40 near-Earth objects (NEOs) in the first year after the mission was re-started in December 2013, JPL reports.

Eight of the discoveries have been classified as potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs), based on their size and how close their orbits could come to Earth’s orbit.

The mission has further observed and characterized 245 previously known near-Earth objects. From December 2013 to December 2014, NEOWISE discovered three new comets and observed 32 others. One of the others has turned into the brightest comet in Earth’s night sky in early 2015, comet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy).

EURUSD Tumbles Below 1.15, Near 12-Year Lows 

Things are escalating…

Swiss Stocks Slammed-er As DAX Hits Record High 

First the good news… European Stocks (ex Greece and Switzerland) exploded higher this week with ‘great’ nations like Portugal (up over 7%) and Italy (up over 5.5%) and Germany’s ADX over 10,000 to record highs. EU bond spreads compressed notably (Spain/Italy down 20bps or so on the week) and EURUSD crashed below 1.15… all on hopes that the SNB decision means Moar-Massive ECB QE comes next week (not priced in). But the bad news… Swiss stocks collapsed-er again today for the worst week since Lehman. Swiss bond yields are negative to 12 year maturity and EURCHF is back below par at 0.9820…

Swiss Stocks Slump For Worst Week Since Lehman, Bond Yields Negative To 12 Years 

Despite massive volatility and turmoil this week, today’s bounce in crude and stocks is all anyone remembers… so! But – in reality – it was total chaos…

Silver – best week since Aug 2013
Gold – best week since Oct 2011
WTI Crude – first positive week in last 8 weeks
S&P 500 – worst week in last 5 weeks
VIX – Highest weekly close since Dec 2012
Treasury Yields – 3rd weekly drop in a row to new record for 30Y
EURUSD – worst week since Jul 2012
CHFUSD – best week ever ever ever

“Buying Panic” Lifts Stocks Green Post-QE Amid Gold’s Best Week Since Oct 2011 

If you thought the market’s reaction to the Swiss National Bank’s decision was extreme… imagine what happens when this unwinds…

Leveraged Funds have never been more short the Treasury Bond… and T-Bond yields continue to crash to record lows…

And yesterday – specs were the shortest the Swiss Franc in 2 years and it spiked 24 handles.

This Won’t End Well 

This new movie depicts asteroids and comets observed in the past year by NEOWISE. Each dot represents an asteroid or comet that the mission observed. Green circles represent near-Earth objects (asteroids and comets that come within 1.3 astronomical units of the sun; one astronomical unit is Earth’s distance from the sun). Yellow squares represent comets. Gray dots represent all other asteroids, which are mostly in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. The orbits of Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars are shown.

We have yet to find out just which hedge funds were blown up yesterday, but we already do know that numerous retail FX brokers did get blown up and as reported earlier, the largest retail broker FXCM is trading down 90% in the pre-market.

And now, thanks to Dow Jones, we start to learn just how much pain the bank themselves suffered:

This is just the beginning. Expect to hear horror stories when macro hedge funds finally clear up their P&L as a result of yesterday’s mauling.

So far 4 brokers have issues…

UK-based Alpari

Clients of New Zealand forex broker Global Brokers NZ Ltd, which operates Excel Markets, have been told the company “can no longer meet regulatory minimum capitalization requirements of N$1,000,000 and will not be able to resume business.” Client positions will be closed within the next hour..

UPDATE: Knight Trading 2.0? Jefferies executive are reportedly on-site at FXCM discussing a $200 million bailout

As we first reported last night, FXCM was among the first of many retail FX brokers (and the largest) to see its clients suffer massive losses from yesterday’s Swiss Franc surge following the SNB decision to unleash market forces. There are now at least 4 retail FX brokers (FXCM, Excel Markets, OANDA, and Alpari) who have announced “issues” but FXCM, being among the largest and publicly traded is the most transparent example of wjust what can go wrong when average joes are allowed 100:1 leverage. FXCM is now stuck chasing clients for money they do not (and will never) have.. and its stock is down 90%, trading a $2 this morning (down from $17 on Wednesday). As Credit Suisse notes, time is running out as regulators “tend to be impatient once capital requirements are breached.”

Largest Retail FX Broker Stock Crashes 90% As Swiss Contagion Spreads 

Recall that as we reported three days ago, while Greece refused to admit that it was suffering a bank run ahead of a potentially game-changing election, it did report that “most taxpayers have chosen to delay their [tax] payments, given that the positions of the two main parties leading the election polls are diametrically opposite: Poll leader SYRIZA promises to cancel the ENFIA and even write off bad loans, while ruling New Democracy acknowledges the difficulties but is avoiding raising issues that would generate problems and fiscal consequences.”

Well, yesterday we got some more details on the collapse in tax payments when Kathimerini reported that indeed as feared, Greek tax remittances have plunged by up to 80% compared to last year, in the process making a mockery of any Greek reforms.

The Greek Bank Runs Have Begun: Two Greek Banks Request Emergency Liquidity Assistance

The bad news is that as we also speculated, and as Greek officials tried to cover up as usual, the Greeks have resumed doing what they do best any time their country is facing a grand crisis: walking to the bank and withdrawing what little deposits they have left. Or rather running to the bank.

Which brings us back to the topic of the Emergency Liquidity Assistnace, which as Kathimerini reported moments ago, at least two Greek systemic banks have reportedly resorted to, indicating that the liquidity situation in Greece is once again as dire as it was in the depth of the European collapse.

And just like that, it’s deja vu all over again, and the worst days of the summer of 2011 are ahead of us once more, only this time Draghi’s “Whatever it takes” unconditional OMT bazooka has conditions, and anyway after today’s SNB fiasco, what a central bank threatens, warns, begs or even does, may no longer even matter.

The Greek Bank Run Spreads To All Four Largest Banks

While moments ago Greece was downgraded by that paragon of analytical and timing virtue, Fitch, to a negative outlook from stable, that is largely meaningless for a nation, devoid of tax revenues and increasingly deposits, which is suddenly imploding at an ever-faster motion.

What is relevant is that following yesterday’s report that two Greek banks had suffered sufficiently material deposit withdrawals to force them to apply for the unpopular and highly stigmatizing Emergency Liquidity Assistance program with the ECB, now the other two of Greece’s largest banks have also succumbed to reserve depletion after the Greek bank run appears to have gone viral. As Greek Capital.gr reports, now all four Greek banks have requested ELA assistance from the same ECB president who earlier today is said to have unceremoniously kicked out Greece from the ECB’s QE program.

GLOBAL ECONOMIC MELTDOWN: Precursors To A Global Financial Collapse: Retail Industry Collapsing; Target To Shut 133 Canada Stores And Cut Over 17,000 Employees To Stem Massive Losses! 

Industrial Production dropped 0.1% in December (slightly worse than expected) after November’s 1.3% surge – the biggest sicne may 2010. Not since Jan 2014’s Polar Vortex has Industrial Production dropped more than this. The 5.5% surge in vehicle production – as suspected – was entirely unsustainable and dropped 0.9% in December and Utilities collapsed 7.3% on the month – the worst dropo since Jan 2006.

Industrial Production dropped most since Jan 2014…

Industrial Production Drops By Most In 11 Months (After Biggest Surge Since 2010) 

US oil rig count tumbled almost 6% YoY – its biggest annual drop in 15 months. However, the 13% collapse in the last 8 weeks is accelerating faster than the 2001 and 2008 crisis and has dropped rig count to its lowest since October 2010. At the same time production is surging – in fact at its highest pace on record… the game of chicken continues.

US Oil Rig Count Collapses To Over 4 Year Low (as Production Hits Record High)

Of course, these are fictional narratives… but isn’t the entire edifice of the world’s markets ‘fictional’ where truth is stranger than any fiction one could have imagined just 7 short years ago…

Here are a few theories on what really happened at the Swiss National Bank on January 15, 2015. That fateful day, the SNB suddenly decided to end suppressing the value of the Swiss Franc versus the Euro.

What happened at the SNB?

At the hastily arranged press conference on January 15, SNB’s president, Jordan, looked like a red-faced school boy caught with the hand in the cookie jar. None of his explanations made any sense. The SNB was clearly caught by surprise itself and didn’t have time to make up some better lies. But why this sudden change of heart, throwing in the towel causing book losses of somewhere around CHF 75bn (>10% GDP)?

Some theories:

a) SNB had to buy Euros by the billions every day, and the balance sheet was exploding. FX holdings, at almost 500bn at the end of 2014 might have reached 600bn or more (almost 100% of GDP). SNB is a listed bank with minority shareholders (like the German Theo Siegert, who holds 5.5%). So may be Swiss regulator was getting uneasy with leverage?

b) Foreign FX is not held at the SNB, but rather at an account at a foreign bank in name of the SNB. May be at the ECB itself. So the ECB probably knew exactly what was going on, and how many Euros the SNB was piling up. If the number was getting out of hand, ECB could have threatened to leak some info, inviting speculators to mount an attack on the SNB.

c) SNB had to hold the fort until after the gold referendum, since such a disaster would have undermined trust in the SNB and possibly have tilted a few towards voting “yes”.

d) After the opinion of the ECJ on bond buying it has become pretty clear the ECB will go all-in at its next meeting and begin buying Euro-zone bonds in earnest. The SNB was running already into difficulties finding AAA Euro-zone bonds to buy with a positive yield (to “recycle” all the Euros bought). The SNB was forced further and further out on the maturity ladder, increasing DV01 (the risk should interest rates start rising).

e) ECB made an offer to the SNB to take those Euro-zone bonds off the SNB’s balance sheet. In exchange, the SNB had to promise to stop buying Euros, effectively ending the peg. The ECB was never very fond of the SNB’s interventions, since the large buying of Euros probably left the Euro stronger than it otherwise could have been, thereby working against the ECB’s intentions. Letting the SNB know what is about to happen next week (and that the SNB would have been overwhelmed by Euro printing) left little choice. For the ECB killed two birds with one stone: it removed a large buyer of Euros, and it would give the ECB a large chunk of bonds they otherwise would have had to buy via the market.

f) The ECB told the SNB it couldn’t care less about a “Grexit” (exit of Greece from the Euro-zone). The SNB would have to expect massive further inflows into the CHF in such a case.

g) Interestingly, an article appeared in the NZZ newspaper a few days before the cap fell (“Euro Mindestkurs – SNB-Doyen will neue Untergrenze”, NZZ am Sonntag, January 11, 2015. In the article, Ernst Baltensperger, an “influential thinker in monetary policy”, recommended giving up the 1.20 barrier as potential losses from the SNB’s balance sheet were rising. He also floated the idea of replacing the Euro barrier with a cap versus a basket of currencies (50% Euro, 50% US Dollar).
The question remains how much of the SNB’s equity is gone, and if it will be forced to resort to a rights issue. Instead of alienating Swiss Cantons with a cash call, the government might decide it is cheaper to buy out minorities, delist the stock and survive with an irrevocable government guarantee.


Something big is “fast approaching” – Ron Paul

It is not a coincidence that bankers keep showing up “suicided” (i.e. killed off) lately. It is also not a coincidence that the U.S. domestic police forces have been arming up with military weapons from the front lines of all-out war in the Middle East. Law enforcement is arming up for something big. Really big.

As Ron Paul recently wrote in a widely-cited column, “A major geopolitical or economic event, greater than the crisis of 2008, is fast approaching. The precipitating event will be a surprise to the majority of politicians and economists. There are many “next shoe to drop” possibilities, and one could happen any time or any place.”

Ron Paul goes on to explain:

Sanity will not return to US leaders until our financial system collapse — an event for which they are feverishly working… Debt in all categories will continue to increase at unsustainable rates…

The riots to come

Everyone at the highest levels of the U.S. government knows that the current entitlement state debt system is wildly unsustainable. They also know that the day after the EBT cards (food stamps) stop working, every U.S. city will collapse into under chaos and mass rioting.

Although this event could still be years away, its arrival is inevitable. And when it does happen, it will happen suddenly, without warning. That means most people will be completely caught off guard. And when they are caught off guard, they will panic.

I pity the people who do not realize what’s happening on the global stage. All those people obsessed with Hollywood movies, celebrities, fashion and television will be completely taken by surprise when the currency war escalates. They have no idea how close they are to helplessness, hunger and desperation. They have no awareness of reality, no real-world skills and no ability to take care of themselves.

That’s why I recently declared 2015 to be the Year of Self-Reliance. This is the year when it’s becoming increasingly urgent to learn and practice skills for living away from the systems that are subject to failure. This is a time to learn how to augment your current lifestyle with some home food production, water collection and storage, off-grid energy sources, home-based medicine production and more.

Interestingly, many Russians already have these skills, so if economic devastation strikes both the USA and Russia, there’s no question that the Russian citizens will do far better in terms of survival and self-reliance. Russia, even with all its own problems, at least does not criminalize home gardening, fresh cow’s milk and home-produced herbal remedies.

There are some big moves taking place on the global stage that you need to know about, as this could all lead to World War III.

Yesterday Russia cut off its natural gas supply to Europe, “plunging the continent into an energy crisis ‘within hours’ as a dispute with Ukraine escalated,” reports the Daily Mail. [1]

“This morning, gas companies in Ukraine said that Russia had completely cut off their supply. Six countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas shipped via Ukraine today, in a sharp escalation of a struggle over energy that threatens Europe as winter sets in.”

Alternative media warned about this weeks ago

This was all predicted in advance as a move toward World War III. The website All News Pipeline summarizes the predictions which were widely printed across the alternative media weeks ago.

Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts had also warned in advance of a “Black Swan Event” such as Russia cutting off energy supplies to European nations as a prelude to war.

Europe depends heavily on natural gas supplies from Russia which are piped into the region via Ukraine. This is especially true in the winter when gas is needed for heat.

Russia throws down the gauntlet: energy supply to Europe cut off; petrodollar abandoned as currency war escalates

In addition to cutting off natural gas supplies to Europe, Russia has also “just pulled itself out of the petrodollar,” reports Zero Hedge. [2]

The story quotes Bloomberg.com stating that Russia “may unseal its $88 billion Reserve Fund and convert some of its foreign-currency holdings into ruble.”

This is further explained by Mac Slavo at SHTFplan.com who explains, “What we are seeing are the strategic moves that will eventually catalyze the next great war. And make no mistake, this is exactly what’s in store for the world should these escalations continue.”

An escalation into war?

What’s happening here is a radical escalation of the global currency war in which Russia and China are attempting to route the U.S. dollar and ultimately destroy the U.S. empire.

Part of this strategy involves dumping the petrodollar as a global reserve currency and reverting to alternative currencies backed by something more than just hot air. Further evidence of this strategy is found in the explanations on King World News which states that China is moving to back its Yuan currency with gold!

This explains why China has been buying up the world’s physical gold supplies. The U.S., meanwhile, has empty gold vaults and a fiat paper currency backed by nothing but hot air, empty promises and endless debt. The whole world knows this, and nations like Russia are positioning themselves to take advantage of the massive currency collapse that’s eventually coming to the dollar.

Just yesterday, the Swiss franc skyrocketed 30% in mere minutes as the central banks controlling the Euro neared announcing their own massive money printing scheme that would flood the global markets with Euros. As Associated Press wrote, “Bowing to the inevitable, Switzerland has ditched an increasingly expensive policy to limit the export-sapping rise of the Swiss franc — a decision that propelled the currency a whopping 30 percent higher against the euro within minutes.” [3]

Oil prices manipulated as an act of economic warfare

As part of the U.S. effort to wage war on Russia, oil prices have been artificially lowered with the help of the Saudis (who have strong ties to the Bush family and whose royalty was magically evacuated out of the U.S. on private jets during the 9/11 terror attacks) working in conjunction with U.S. forces. The aim is to devastate the Russian economy, harm the Russian currency and even cause damage to Venezuela where food supplies are now wiped out and grocery stores are being guarded by armed government military personnel.

Of course, you won’t hear a word of this from the hypnotic, droning mainstream media which tells you everything is just fine. It isn’t. Massive geopolitical strategies and schemes are being unleashed right now, behind the scenes, and a currency war is under way at the highest levels.

The days are numbered for the dollar as the world’s reserve currency

The world, it seems, is fed up with the U.S. abusing its reserve currency status by pumping up the money supply with billions of dollar a month in new fiat money. (Courtesy of the Federal Reserve and its bankster bailouts.) The world is also fed up with the U.S. meddling in international affairs in Ukraine, the Middle East and hundreds of individual nations where the U.S. empire maintains a military occupation of one kind or another.

Right now the Russians are targeting NATO countries with the energy cut-offs, sending a message that any nation which allows its soil to be used by western forces to host missile systems will find its economy crushed by a lack of available energy.

The U.S., meanwhile, has dangerously backed Putin into a corner from which we can only expect an aggressive backlash engineered to protect the national interests of Russia itself.

Remember how the U.S. was drawn into World War II?

You may or may not recall that it was a U.S.-led energy blockage against Japan in the 1940’s that ultimate forced Japan to launch its surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. In a similar pattern, the U.S. and NATO nations are currently forcing devastating economic sanctions onto Russia, driving the nation into a rapidly-dwindling set of defensive options, one of which includes the deployment of nuclear weaponry.

This situation is beyond “serious.” It is at red alert levels, and you need to be monitoring websites like http://www.SteveQuayle.com to catch the headlines you won’t find in the mainstream media.

Steve Quayle has consistently been decades ahead of everyone else with his predictions on biological weaponry, currency wars and much more. His foresight is so far-reaching, in fact, that it’s almost a curse because a society blinded by the distractions of current affairs will never value the accurate warnings of a man who sees a decade or more into the future. Western culture is far too short-sighted and self-possessed to take seriously the words of a man who warns that the good times buoyed by debt and delusion won’t last forever.

In a world of deceit, all truth-tellers are condemned

Even now, we are living in a time when all truth-tellers are condemned as heretics. Any person quoting accurate economic statistics, for example, is called a “doom and gloomer.” Anyone questioning the sanity of a government that’s $18 trillion in debt and spending wildly on ballooning entitlement programs is labeled “anti-government.” We are living in a time that’s so bizarre, almost everything the average American believes to be true is factually false. The mainstream news is the wool that’s pulled over their eyes to blind them from the truth, to paraphrase The Matrix.

The real truth is that our world is headed straight into unprecedented crisis and conflict. When you wake up tomorrow, realize you are living in the run-up to a collapsed economy that exists in a world where the most powerful nations on the planet have already declared a covert war on the U.S. empire (and can’t wait to bring it down).

The artificially-inflated luxury lifestyle currently experienced by the U.S. population — complete with welfare state entitlement programs — will come to an end for the simple reason that it’s all funded by artificial money creation. That artificial money creation, in turn, is only possible because the dollar is currently the world’s reserve currency, providing a very large money supply base (“buffer”) that insulates America from the more immediate effects of fiat currency creation. But as the world abandons the petrodollar, the ability of the U.S. to print its way to bigger government, bigger entitlements and bigger debt will utterly collapse.

Japan Set To Surpass China As America’s Largest Creditor

When it comes to America’s foreign creditors, only two names matter (except for Belgium whose Euroclear service continues to be used by an anonymous entity(s) to buy up US Treasurys): Japan and China. And it is in the Treasury buying and selling dynamics of these two entities that we can see how Japan’s monetary policy has impacted its holdings of US paper, which just hit a new all time high of $1,242 billion, while on the other hand Beijing’s official holdings of Treasurys have remained unchanged since the summer of 2011, and which in July declined yet another month to just $1,250 billion, the lowest since January 2013.

In fact, as the chart below shows, thanks to Abenomics, in the past two years Japan’s holdings of US paper have soared by $150 billion, as the BOJ has forced pension funds, banks and citizens to chase higher yielding US paper, while Chinese holdings haven’t budged by an inch.

At this rate, look for a historic inversion next month when the December TIC data is released and which, all else equal, will show that for the first time since the financial crisis, China will no longer be America’s largest creditor, a spot that will be taken over by insolvent Japan.

Yes, the same Japan which as we showed before, is forced to monetize all of its own gross treasury issuance or else suffer a completely bond market collapse.
