So, three months later, we are happy to report that somebody finally noticed that the Petrodollar has indeed finally died, and more importantly, has attempted to put together an analysis of what we said in early November, reaching the conclusion that plunging oil just may not be all that financial comedy TV has it cracked up to be.
Did we say somebody? We meant everyone!
Below are extensive, in-depth, and long overdue questions on petrodollar recycling, or rather its halt, and its implications from virtually every single Bank of America economist and strategist who after months of stalling, have finally been forced to confront this most critical of topics head on.
If the shedding of US assets by oil-exporting economies results in an appreciable tightening of US financial conditions, the Fed may move later or more gradually in its exit strategy.
* * *
In other words, from irrelevant, to “unambiguously good” if only for those who have zero understanding of what it means, suddenly the end of the Petrodollar recycling chain is said to impact everything from Russian geopolitics, to global capital market liquidity, to safe-haven demand for Treasurys, to social tensions in developing nations, to the Fed’s exit strategy.
Or said otherwise, we now know why the Fed felt like adding the word “international developments” in its latest statement.
Apparently, according to Fisher and the Fed, the founders of the republic and authors of the Constitution were out of their minds.
Article I, Section 8, Clause 5 of the Constitution states: Congress has the duty to “coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures.”.
The bill never goes into specifics on what would be considered a public offense, thus providing immunity to lawmakers for nearly any criminal activity at the local level. Since Calvey himself acknowledges that the point would be to avoid legislators or politicians from being prosecuted for abuse-of-power, this bill proposes to set forth a very dangerous precedence that could lead to even less accountability for politicians.
“It’s a big deal to me. I’m upset and concerned,” Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater explained. “This bill creates a different class of citizens that would be protected from the normal prosecution process.”
and there was given to it to give a spirit to the image of the beast, that also the image of the beast may speak, and [that] it may cause as many as shall not bow before the image of the beast, that they may be killed.
16 And it maketh all, the small, and the great, and the rich, and the poor, and the freemen, and the servants, that it may give to them a mark upon their right hand or upon their foreheads,
17 and that no one may be able to buy, or to sell, except he who is having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is the wisdom! He who is having the understanding, let him count the number of the beast, for the number of a man it is, and its number [is] 666..
According to leading economist Martin Armstrong, a new bill just proposed in Congress on Wednesday by US Representative John Katko would REQUIRE the TSA to ‘apprehend and investigate’ anyone SUSPECTED OF COMMITTING A CRIME, thus turning the TSA into a new branch of the Internal Revenue Service and building a new kind of ‘Berlin Wall’ around ALL Americans as shared by Alex Jones in the brand new video below.
We learn here that the TSA Office of Inspection Accountability Act (H.R. 719) would require TSA’s ‘Criminal Investigators’ to spend AT LEAST 50% of their time ‘investigating, apprehending or detaining’ individuals only SUSPECTED of committing a crime. According to Armstrong: “This is any crime. Keeping gold in a safe deposit box is money laundering carrying up to 25 years in prison.”
Did the Berlin Wall REALLY come down back in November of 1989 or was that merely the beginning the ‘next stage’ of building the wall up around America, Americans and the ‘free world’?
“This bill will now result in the arrest of anyone for any alleged crime whatsoever and that will apply to taxes,” warns the economist, accusing Katko of, “converting the TSA into a police force less concerned about air safety and focused more on catching anyone the government can argue violates some law federal or state.”
“It is so broad, this would apply to domestic disputes as well,” he adds.
And DJI, the drone’s maker, grounded drones in the Washington DC area with a GPS software patch.
And perhaps that last item is the most intriguing. A maker of a physical product reached out through cyberspace and disabled it to comply with the law. (In fact, the update couldn’t be forced on owners as the drones aren’t internet connected, but if owners want to benefit from other updates, they have to accept that one.)
Where most regulated products rely on the threat of punishment and law enforcement to ensure people follow rules, with computer-based physical products, we may be witnessing the birth of a new, distinctly modern regulatory era.
Could such a system be abused? No doubt about it.
Well-meaning regulations with unforeseen consequences are written regularly. Authoritarian regimes that already keep a tight grip on their countries’ internet could, in the future, control much more. Further, regulatory software updates would likely only work for the law-abiding—those motivated to circumvent them will find a way.
But so it is with any technology. It’s trite but true—technology is a double-edged sword. The ability to wirelessly update a product may also extend its life and slow obsolescence. Your Tesla might get faster or smoother acceleration. Your drone may become a better flier in high winds or learn to do a flip off the palm of your hand.
What do you think? How does ownership change when the maker of a product can modify it at will? Is regulatory enforcement at a distance a good thing? Or does it herald an era of stifling control? A little of each perhaps?
Smart Dust is a new term to me, and quite alarming when you understand its purpose. According to our recent guest on The Liberty Brothers Radio Show,Deborah Tavares, Smart Dust is being sprayed overhead across America, and it is apparently one “legal” government experiment that is nearly impossible to avoid. When one understands the push towards a “singularity” between man and machine, it is not too hard to believe Deborah’s research into the attempted transformation from humankind into cyborgs.
Smart Dust is alarming, no doubt, but it is just one of the many topics that we discussed with Researcher, Deborah Tavares. Deborah, a home-builder for many years, began to notice the restrictions being placed on smaller builders, and the breaks being given to larger builders, in her home state of California. After being, basically, regulated out of business, Deborah began her quest for truth and started to peel back the layers of corruption that permeates our so-called representatives.
Deborah first covered the DOD chemical experiments on Americans, and moved on to Smart-Meters being used as weapons. That’s right, Deborah states that Smart Meters can be used to crank up the dial on uncooperative, and unsuspecting, households who may be considered problematic; making the people who live inside the home sick from microwave, or some other type of radiation.
As our interview progressed, we learned how much of a grip the Rothschild Dynasty has over the energy here in America; and how some of those same organizations, and the corporations that serve them, are pushing the “illusion of scarcity” as another means of control. We also covered the re-engineering of human DNA, and how the “green movement,” if successful, will require every house in America to be retrofitted to comply with UN mandates. The interview with Deborah covers a wide range of topics and is one not to miss. To get up-to-speed on Chemtrails, I encourage to watch our previous interview with Elana Freeland and Billy Hayes.
The debate Musk, Hawking, and Gates are wading into is about the future of AI (just how futuristic is also controversial) when general AI emerges. General artificial intelligence would match and then (maybe very quickly) exceed human intelligence. It is, in fact, an old and oft-recurring debate with newly fresh legs.
In his book Superintelligence, released last year, Nick Bostrom argues that there are good reasons to believe artificial superintelligence could be very alien, very powerful, and as it seeks to achieve its goals, could wipe human beings out.
Director Henry Dunham’s “The Awareness” summons up dark visions of Skynet and Terminator. And it notes that while the powerful publicly debate ethics and safety, they can’t prevent or control advances being made on the fringes. That’s the beauty and terror of democratized digital technology. Set in a dark and grimy warehouse, the offices of a struggling tech startup, the lead programmer sums it up when he says: “I created the future on a $30 table.”
Then the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the key of the [a]bottomless pit was given to him. 2 He opened the [b]bottomless pit, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. 3 Then out of the smoke came locusts [c]upon the earth, and power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
Perhaps – in the same way – US leadership needs a ‘foreign’ boogey-man to focus national attention away from what is under the surface a weak and extremely divided economic ‘recovery’?
Nineteenth-century German historians had a phrase, Primat der Innenpolitik, meaning that all foreign policy was essentially driven by domestic concerns. One government would pick a fight with another, not because of geopolitical imperatives, but in order to shore up its support at home.
Shakespeare has Henry IV give his son some advice from the deathbed: “Be it thy course to busy giddy minds with foreign quarrels”
Just as the existing ‘truce’ in Ukraine has been made a total farce as 1000s of military and civilians have been killed, so any ‘hope’ that this weekend’s “peace efforts” will result in anything but more talk is rapidly diminishing… Germany’s Merkel exclaimed honestly that it’s “uncertain whether this will be successful,” seemingly resigned to the fact as she added, “but it’s at least worth making an attempt.” French President Hollande admitted that Ukraine’s eastern regions likely need “strong autonomy.” Ukraine’s Poroshenko blustered that he “trusts” Merkel, that the economy is collapsing (more money please), that the country does not need peacekeepers and a lack of arms is fueling conflict (so send us weapons) while pushing for a Russian withdrawal and quick cease-fire. Finally Vladimir Putin blasted that Russia is unwilling to tolerate a post-Cold War global system dominated by one absolute leader, to which US VP Joe Biden remarked simply “get out of Ukraine.” But apart from that, talks are going great…
CERN is due to re-open the large hadron collider in March of 2015 in order to recreate the big bang, despite warnings from top scientists such as Stephen Hawking and Neil de Grasse Tyson.
Dr. Stephen Hawking recently warned that the reactivation in March of CERN’s large hadron collider could pose grave dangers to our planet…the ultimate reality check we are warned. Hawking has come straight out and said the ‘God particle’ found by CERN “could destroy the universe” leaving time and space collapsed as shared in the 2nd video.
Is CERN the most dangerous thing in the cosmos that could lead to the ultimate destruction of the Earth and the entire universe? Recent developments prove to us the scientific community is no longer able to explain ‘reality’ without looking at the ‘supernatural’. Will we soon learn CERN is really the ‘ultimate stargate’ and one of the gate-keepers most closely guarded secrets? Will this be the way man attempts to break the ultimate ‘God barrier’, an attempt to encounter demi-God’s in an all-out rush towards the destruction of all creation? We understand they won’t be releasing the secrets until they’re prepared to release them.
Cahn also points out that there will be two solar eclipses in 2015. The first will be on the exact center point of the Shemitah, March 20. The other will occur on the last day of the Shemitah: Elul 29 or September 13.

On 20 March 2015 there will be a total solar eclipse which by Jewish tradition is a bad omen for the world. It means that God’s has turned his judgment towards the world.
Three days before there is going to be an election in Israel. Why? Because of a political fracas caused by Netanyahu a few months back. Most Israelis are for Netanyahu’s removal as prime minister. Interestingly enough, the reason for the dissolving of the current Knesset and the forcing of early elections this year is because of Netanyahu’s beef with some people in the government and he fired them. Involved in this was Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni.
I was in utter shock to find this information..and to tie all of this in with the plague of darkness solar eclipse March 20th, 2015..is beyond coincidental.
The total solar eclipse of March 2015 will also SPLIT the Old World and the New World.
In Jewish lore, a solar eclipse signifies a harsh period. The following comes from “Ask the Rabbi” —
This can be compared to a human king who made a feast for his subjects, and placed a lantern before them. When he grew angry with them, he told his servant, “Take away the lantern from before them, and place them in darkness!” (Talmud Bavli, Succah 29a) The king is G-d, the King of Kings; the people at the table are ourselves; the lantern is the sun. The moon obscuring the sun is the kings servant who takes away the lantern. Although eclipses can be described in entirely natural terms and occur at set intervals, they nevertheless indicate that the period is one of Divine retribution for various sins. But an eclipse does not mean that the sun has been extinguished (contrary to what everyone else in the world thought)! The servant did not extinguish the lantern; he merely prevented it from illuminating the kings subjects.
The eclipse will peak in mid-morning (09:45 UT). Around 11 pm (22:45 UT), the Earth will pass through the Spring Equinox, the moment at which day and night are SPLIT (exactly the same length everywhere on the planet).
In between the eclipse and the equinox will be the sundown that begins a special Sabbath celebration.
Nisan 1, 5775 is the first day of the Jewish ecclesiastical year, the day when God began to give His laws to them. In 5775/2015, Nisan 1 will be on the Sabbath, beginning at the first hour of darkness on the day of the solar eclipse that SPLITs the Tetrad and the Old/New Worlds.
This day is known as Shabbat HaChodesh. It comes precisely in the middle of the Jewish calendar year, thus the solar eclipse will also SPLIT the Shemitah of 5775, the year when all debts are forgiven.
The readings for the day include Ezekiel 45:16 – 46:18 and Exodus 12:1-20. I was particularly struck by the references to the prince providing the sacrifice.
Deuteronomy 15:1-2 At the end of seven years you will make a release. And this is the manner of the release: to release the hand of every creditor from what he lent his friend; he shall not exact from his friend or his brother, because the time of the release for the L-rd has arrived. Ezekiel 45:17 The prince shall provide the sin offerings, the meal offerings, the burnt offerings, and the offerings of well-being, to make expiation for the House of Israel.
Exodus 12:1 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt: 2 This month shall mark for you the beginning of the months; it shall be the first of the months of the year for you. 5 Your lamb shall be without blemish. 7 They shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they are to eat it. 12 For that night I will go through the land of Egypt and strike down every first-born in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and I will mete out punishments to all the gods of Egypt, I the Lord. 13 And the blood on the houses where you are staying shall be a sign for you: when I see the blood I will pass over you, so that no plague will destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.
If you don’t have goosebumps yet, check this out. This is what the calendar looked like the year that Jesus died and rose again. In our modern calendar, counting backwards, the year was 33 A.D. (The Holy Thursday Seder was a special Essene custom, a Passover meal without any lamb. It was explained in the Dead Sea Scrolls.)
3793 Nisan Jesus the Firstfruits
Now look back at the solar eclipse calendar. Do you see the extraordinary MATCHING of dates between 3793 – 33 and 5775 – 2015? How about if you look at it like this …
3793-33 matches 5775-2015 dates
NOW do you have goosebumps?
Could this solar eclipse be the sign that indicates the economic meltdown for the USA? Could the United States be placed in darkness and their debts canceled by God to all the nations round the world? Could this also be a sign of the return of Christ? What an exciting and prophetic time we live in…be ready, for you know NOT what hour your Lord shall come.
OBSERVANCES – 2015 (Year of the Shemitah)
March 20, 2015 (Adar 29/ Nisan 1, 5775) is the vernal equinox (tekufat Nisan), Rosh Chodesh, and a total solar eclipse. It is the new year for Jewish kings.

great sign of timing – a total eclipse of the Sun – visits Europe and the North Atlantic on the 20th of March. This eclipse is special because it occurs on the Spring Equinox and ends at the North Pole just as the Sun returns for its six month stay. Will anyone be at the Pole to see a total eclipse on the horizon after a half year of night?
While the total eclipse just misses most of Europe, all the region will enjoy the sight of a partial solar eclipse. Rome will see 62% of the Sun’s disk covered by the Moon. Vienna sees 70%, Paris 82%, and Londoners will experience a pronounced darkening at 87%. Scotland, Ireland, Norway, and Iceland get the deepest partial solar eclipse..
Italian officials on Wednesday said the affected area falls within the “Great Pompeii” joint EU-Italian restoration project and had been already closed to the public.
As forecasted earlier this week, atmospheric river known locally as the Pineapple Express is sweeping down the West Coast US. The storm is dropping heavy rainfall, knocking down trees and power lines, delaying hundreds of flights and causing flash floods and traffic chaos.
Widespread heavy rain is expected to continue across much of the West Coast this weekend and into the next week. The heaviest rainfall will occur across northern California and southern Oregon, where as much as 6 – 10 inches (150 – 254 mm) of rainfall is forecast over the next two days.
While the rain is beneficial for this drought-stricken region experts believe the much expected rainfall won’t make a significant dent in California’s historic drought.

Indeed, if Greek negotiations fail, read if the bluff does not succeed, by May Greek state coffers will likely be getting funding from Beijing and or Moscow. Which then begs the question: has Greece indeed lost everything, allowing it to be finally free to do anything?
One of the bigger problems facing the new, upstart Greek government, which has set before itself the lofty goal of overturning 6 years of oppressive European policies and countless generations of Greek cronyism, corruption and tax-evasion is not so much the concern about deposit outflows and bank runs – even though it most certainly will be in the next few days unless the Tsipras government finds some resolution to the dramatic standoff with Merkel and the ECB – but something far more trivial: running out of money.
