Foreign Federal Reserve (sic): In A State Of Perpetual Unlawful Manipulation

Jim Rickards

Jim Rickards explains the next event that will cause gold & silver to turn up again. Here’s the details…

June 12 is just three weeks away.

That’s when the Federal Open Market Committee, FOMC, the Fed’s interest rate policy arm, will in all likelihood raise interest rates another 0.25%, the seventh such rate increase since the “liftoff” in interest rates in December 2015.

The market is currently putting the odds of a rate hike at 95%.

This is the most aggressive tempo of rate hikes of any major central bank and puts U.S. policy rates significantly higher than those in the U.K., Japan or eurozone.

The issue for investors is whether the Fed is raising rates too aggressively considering the strength of the U.S. economy. Higher rates imply a stronger dollar, imported deflation and head winds to growth.

If the U.S. economy is on a firm footing, then the rate hikes may be appropriate, even necessary to head off inflation.

But if the U.S. economy is vulnerable, then the Fed’s actions could trigger a recession and stock market sell-off unless the Fed reverses course quickly.

My view is that the latter is more likely.

The Fed is tightening into weakness and will reverse course by pausing rate hikes later this year.

When that happens, important trends in stocks, bonds, currencies and gold will be thrown into reverse.

Outwardly, the Fed is sanguine about the prospects for monetary normalization. Both Janet Yellen and new Fed chair Jay Powell have said that interest rate hikes will be steady and gradual.

In practice, this means four rate hikes per year, 0.25% each, every March, June, September and December, with occasional pauses prompted by strong signs of disinflation, disorderly markets or diminution in job creation.

Lately job creation has been strong. And inflation has picked up. But it’s been spotty. The Fed still faces head winds in achieving its inflation goal.

The Fed is targeting a 2% annual inflation rate as measured by an index called PCE core year over year, reported monthly (with a one-month lag) by the Commerce Department.

That inflation index has not cooperated with the Fed’s wishes, and despite recent gains, hasn’t been able to hold consistently above 2%.

This has been a persistent trend and should be troubling to the Fed as it contemplates its next policy move at the FOMC meeting on June 12-13.

I’ve warned repeatedly that the Fed is tightening into weakness. The Atlanta Fed is projecting a 4.1% growth rate for the second quarter. But it’s known for its rosy projections that are almost always revised downwards once the data come in,

It had to lower its estimate of first quarter growth from over 5% to 1.8%. You can pretty much bet they’ll have to significantly reduce this projection as well.

The economy has been trapped in this low-growth cycle for years. The current economic recovery shows none of the 3% to 4% growth that previous recoveries have shown.

Meanwhile, the Fed is plowing ahead with its policy of quantitative tightening (QT), or cutting into its balance sheet.

Balance sheet normalization is even more on autopilot than rate hikes. Now, the Fed will not dump its securities holdings. Instead, it refrains from rolling over maturing securities. When the Treasury pays the Fed upon the maturity of a Treasury note, the money simply disappears.

This is the opposite of money printing — it’s money destruction. Instead of QE, we now have QT, or quantitative tightening. It’s like the Fed is burning money.

The Fed has been transparent about the rate at which they will run off their balance sheet this way, although transparency should not lead investors to complacency.

The Fed wants you to think that QT will not have any impact. Fed leadership speaks in code and has a word for this which you’ll hear called “background.” The Fed wants this to run on background.

Think of running on background like someone using a computer to access email while downloading something on background.

This is complete nonsense.

Contradictions coming from the Fed’s happy talk wants us to believe that QT is not a contractionary policy, but it is.

They’ve spent eight years saying that quantitative easing was stimulative. Now they want the public to believe that a change to quantitative tightening is not going to slow the economy.

They continue to push that conditions are sustainable when printing money, but when they make money disappear, it will not have any impact. This approach falls down on its face — and it will have a major impact.

My estimate is that every $500 billion of quantitative tightening could be equivalent to one .25 basis point rate hike. Some estimates are even higher, as much 2.0% per year. That’s not “background” noise. It’s rock music blaring in your ears.

For an economy addicted to cheap money, this is like going cold turkey.

The decision by the Fed to not purchase new bonds will therefore be just as detrimental to the growth of the economy as raising interest rates.

Meanwhile, retail sales, real incomes, auto sales and even labor force participation are all declining or showing weakness. Every important economic indicator shows that the U.S. economy can’t generate the growth the Fed would like.

Orchestrated dollar balloon

When you add in QT, we may very well be in a recession very soon.

Then the Fed will have to cut rates yet again. Then it’s back to QE. You could call that QE4 or QE1 part 2. Regardless, years of massive intervention has essentially trapped the Fed in a state of perpetual manipulation. More will follow.

But what about the stock market?

Despite February’s correction, the stock market remains overpriced for the combination of higher rates and slower growth.

The one thing to know about bubbles is they last longer than you think and they pop when you least expect it. Under such conditions, it’s usually when the last guy throws in the towel that the bubble pops.

February’s correction took some air out of the bubble, but the dynamic still applies. It just extended the timeline a bit.

But is this thing ready to pop for real?

Absolutely, and QT could be just the thing to do it. I would say the market is fundamentally set up for a fall.

When you throw in the fact that the Fed continues to have no idea what they’re doing and has taken a dangerous course, I expect a very severe stock market correction coming sooner than later.

The Fed is going to find out the hard way that raising rates and reducing the balance sheet will slow the economy.

I believe that will ultimately lead to another flip-flop and the Fed will once again loosen.

When the market sees that the Fed has decided to flip from tightening to an easing policy, look for increased volatility — and more corrections.

Paddock 2.0? Man Claiming to Be Federal Agent Found in Hotel With Arsenal & Psych Meds

hotelhotel

Waikiki, HI – After a man’s social media posts were flagged by the FBI, a tip to the Honolulu Police resulted in officers finding a large cache of loaded weapons during a welfare check at his hotel room.

Hawaii News Now reported that the FBI alerted local authorities to “suspicious” social media posts in which a person was claiming to be a federal agent. The specific contents of the messages or how the FBI was initially alerted has not been made public.

In an email regarding the incident, the Honolulu Police Department stated:

“HPD officers responded to a report of a suspicious male in Waikiki yesterday. The male was located and taken to a hospital for evaluation, where he remains. No charges have been filed at this time.

Investigators recovered the man’s belongings, which included firearms and knives. HPD and FBI investigators are continuing to work on this case, and no further information is being released at this time.”

Strangely, the 38-year-old man reportedly told law enforcement that he was on a mission hunting terrorist cells, according to Hawaii News Now.

The arsenal of weapons found in the man’s possession included:

  • An AR-15, and 15 high-capacity magazines—all loaded.
  • A shotgun and two handguns.
  • A total of more than 800 rounds of ammunition, plus body armor, camouflage, masks and 18 military-style knives.

While weapons were subsequently found to be legally owned by the man, and having them in his hotel room did not violate any laws, the suspect was put on a psychiatric hold after police reportedly found psychiatric medication in his room, which allowed them to confiscate the firearms until a mental health evaluation had been performed.

“There was no danger,” said Mike Dailey, manager at the hotel. “The gentleman was here. He was a guest staying here. He left and then there was an FBI and police investigation.”

“He had a room here and they’re looking at the stuff in his room,” Dailey added. I don’t know that there are any weapons. I think you’ll have to talk to the police about that.”

The man is reportedly a local resident who has lived in Waikiki for 3 years. Police sources claim that he said he brought the weapons and ammunition to his hotel room over the course of a few days. Law enforcement took him to a local hospital for a mental health evaluation; where, if deemed mentally fit, his weapons could be returned.

Oddly, the scene in the hotel room sounds eerily similar to that of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, which is still shrouded in mystery—the Las Vegas massacre at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in October 2017.

Since the attack on Oct. 1, there has been a consistent lack of transparency that has raised questions as to whether some type of cover-up was ongoing. Legitimate inquiry into the attacks has reportedly been shut down at the highest levels, and high-ranking FBI officials in Washington have been accused of working to conceal the information.

The FBI’s “official” narrative goes something like this: suspect Stephen Paddock was a mysterious lone wolf gunman. He was a mystery man and habitual gambler who snapped, bought guns, and shot up a music festival—and no one knows why.

This massive cover-up involves the FBI attempting to hide the fact that they have evidence that the election of President Trump was a catalyst for the radicalization of Paddock—and that other persons of interest could potentially be involved in the massacre.

The rabbit hole is deep.

More recently, on March 25, a man named Francho Bradley—who also claimed to be on a secret government mission—was arrested by Tewksbury Police following a search of his hotel room that uncovered a massive cache of firearms, including an AR-15 with a bump stock, other rifles, handguns, 3 silencers, ammunition, smoke grenades, flash bangs, a rocket launcher, cellular phones and even satellite phones—much of equipment that would be needed to conduct a black-op shooting in the vein of the Las Vegas shooting.

After being given consent to search the hotel room by Bradley, a detective found three parking tickets from Cambridge Street at Anthem Street and Second Street. According to the police report, detectives believed that Bradley may have been out surveilling the area:

As I entered back into the hotel room, Offficers McMahon and Adams stood by with Francho. I entered the room and saw parking tickets from Cambridge at Athenaeum Street and Second Street. Two of the tickets were at the same exact location two days apart and the third was from an area a short distance away on a third day. I found this to be odd because according to Francho’s statements prior he had no ties to Boston or Cambridge but he kept receiving parking tickets. Based on his frequent trips from Cambridge to Tewksbury and arsenal of weapons, my suspicions grew that he may be surveilling an area. It should be noted that I knew there was a major demonstration “March for Our Lives” in Boston that day.”

Perhaps not so coincidentally, Bradley is deeply immersed in the U.S. national security apparatus, as evidenced by a report from Heavy.

While these three events could be completely unrelated, they seem to share some very interesting similarities and are most certainly worth further investigation.

This Jared Kushner-Backed Bill Could Be 2018's Last Shot At Federal Prison Reform

WASHINGTON ― A revamped bipartisan prison reform bill introduced this week with the backing of president’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner outlines steps to improve the lives of some federal prisoners. But it has drawn opposition from many advocates for change who want a more comprehensive reform of the criminal justice system.

The FIRST STEP Act, introduced by Reps. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) and Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) and Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), is expected to be marked up in the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. The legislation focuses on lowering recidivism of federal prisoners and would require the federal Bureau of Prisons to create evidence-based rehabilitation plans for all inmates. If passed the legislation would allow some federal prisoners to earn more credit towards reduced sentences for “good time” and would require federal prisoners to be placed within 500 miles of their homes. It would also ban the use of restraints on pregnant prisoners and encourage compassionate releases for elderly and terminally ill offenders.

Jessica Jackson Sloan, national director and co-founder of #Cut50, a criminal justice reform organization, told HuffPost that Kushner has been “a driving force behind the scenes” in support of the legislation.

“We understand that the president is willing to sign it. I hear Jeff Sessions is not very happy with it, but there’s so much agreement on it at this point that he is not getting in the way,” Jackson Sloan said.

A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment on the legislation.

Jackson Sloan said Kushner had a tremendous degree of empathy for federal prisoners and their families. “His insight as a person who was negatively impacted by the criminal justice system has been very valuable,” she said, referencing the 14 months that Kushner’s father spend in federal prison.

“I’m a strong Democrat, and I had no relationship with him prior to this, so it’s been very interesting to see his passion for this issue, and I think that comes from a personal place, having been through that and seeing what his own father went through, and really the impact on him,” she added.

Some Democrats and civil rights organizations are skeptical of legislation that doesn’t have a broader impact. Todd A. Cox of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund wrote that a narrow proposal would “undermine bipartisan efforts to develop a comprehensive reform package that most Americans support.” Last month, a large number of civil rights organizations came out against legislation that only addressed prison reform and said that the bill could have a disparate racial impact because it made large numbers of prisoners incarcerated for certain offenses ineligible for earning time credits.

Alex Gudich, the deputy director of #Cut50, said that his group sees the bill as a good start when it’s “harder than it’s ever been” to achieve something across the aisle. He added that this didn’t have to be the last word on criminal justice reform.

“People who say that if Congress does this now they won’t return to this for years or decades to come, I just don’t buy that because I just don’t think everybody is getting everything that they want here,” Gudich said. “The Democrats are not getting sentencing reform, but Republicans are not getting mens rea. They’re not getting civil asset forfeiture. They’re not getting things that touch on the criminal justice system that are listed as their priorities.”

The DOJ has so far declined to weigh in on the legislation, but Sessions ― an opponent of broader federal sentencing reform ― has come across as a skeptic of re-entry programs.

Speaking last week at a National Sheriffs’ Association conference, he said that the Justice Department’s inspector general had not been “complimentary” about the how the federal government had handled re-entry in the past. Sessions also begrudgingly noted the decrease in the federal prison population in recent years and the decrease in the length of the average sentence. He also suggested there was a correlation between the lower federal prison population and increased crime. While he sounded generally skeptical about re-entry programs, he did indicate that he thinks “re-entry programs can help reduce recidivism.”

Did the Federal Reserve Save President Trump From Assassination?

Paul Preston of Agenda 21 Radio, a quality and and tireless researcher, and myself have combined on investigating a number of issues ranging from the crisis involving the Oroville Dam to the various developments of the CALEXIT movement. We have crossed paths once again, but this time, our joint investigations were not planned, our paths accidentally crossed paths and the topic of coincidence has to do with the iintended assassination of President Trump.

Two months ago, Paul Preston told me that the reason that President Trump abruptly, and at the last minute cancelled his South American trip was due to the fact that a definitive and well-coordinated plot to assassinate the President had been discovered. Paul ran with that story and I was content to sit on the sidelines of this story and cheer on his fine work and celebrate the fact that the President avoided catastrophe.

Call me “slow to the party”, I have also stumbled upon similar information with regard to this planned assassination of Trump. The perpetrators are called, The Shining Path. As it is with the Sanchez Peredes cartel, operating out of Peru, this group is a facillitator between Middle East terror groups, MS-13 and various drug cartels operating within Central America and now, inside of the United States.

One of the reasons that I found Paul Preston’s assassination plot revelation so compelling is because I am already aware that Trump, and for good reason, does not trust much of the Deep State infested Secret Service. I have previously reported that the President uses the Marines to provide much of his security. I have learned, independent of the fine work of Paul Preston that it was the Marines White House detail that called off the President’s trip to South America as they came across details of the plot. I have also been told loyal elements of the FBI shared similar information with key White House staffers. Additionally, I was told that the Federal Reserve shared key information on this point with Trump’s guard detail. Why would they do that? The answer is simple, Trump is protecting the Petrodollar as much as possible. Now, I am not here to make excuses for this President, however, his unwarranted and participation in the false flag Syrian chemical weapons attack and subsequent retaliation, was a deal made between Federal Reserve interests and Trump. The Fed needs Syria and Iran knocked out of power and thus, collapse the gold backed oil sales coming out of Iran. The Federal Reserve is willing to go to war over this issue, because it is a survival issue for this institution. Without a viable petrodollar, the dollar will collapse along with your job, pension and bank account. This is why Trump capitulated and gave the Federal Reserve what they wanted, which is to unseat Assad before turning their attention to Iran. I was told that it is the belief of American intelligence agencies that if Syria falls, Russia will not feel that they can adequately defend Iran from Israel.  To date, Russia has not shown any real interst in going to war other than the typica blustering against the US imperialism.

The perpetrators of the assassination plot against Trump, The Shining Path, have distinctive Red Dawn ties to the paramilitary groups that are training in El Salvador and Honduras. They are also tied to the old CITGO oil empire which, in part, evolved into the BRICS organization which is seeking to destroy the Petrodollar by confining oil purchases to gold while bypassing the international agreement which only permitted oil sales in dollars. Interestingly, the old CITGO alliances tie directly to George Soros front groups and directly to the Chinese government. I do not believe that China wants war, at this time, with the US, however, this event and subsequent discovery of Shining Path’s involvement would have led to blaming China and thus, World War III could have commenced. Thi sis specufflation, but this is probably why China is cooperating with Korean unification.  What this definitely indicates is that although the Federal Reserve is not active in trying to assassinate President Trump at this time, larger scale banking interests are very much interested in starting WW III and framing China for any assassination attempt. This group could be none other than the Rothschild’s Bank of Internation Settlements.

Trump’s complicity in the Syrian chemical weapons false flag attack is now understandable given how these moving parts of this story fit together.Trump has reached a deal with the Federal Reserve and regime change for Syria and Iran is his objective. Further trump needs a healthy Federal Reserve to continue to bolster his economic recovery for America. It is an ugly partnership, but it is a partnership.

My source for this information does not have a name as far as the public is concerned. He is a former ARSOF member. He was the source for my ground breaking revelations regarding the near military coup that almost took place against Obama by key members of AFRICOM and part of the Navy in the midst of the Clinton based plot to assassinate Ambassador Stephens because his CIA activities regarding gun-running, drug-running and child trafficking which were beginning to leak right before the 2012 election. Followers of The Common Sense Show may recall that I published these revelations in October of 2012 and by February of 2013 every word from my ARSOF source was validated. I have a 100% confidence call in this information as presented here. Essentially what I am saying is that Trump compromised on Syria and now we know why. I have come to believe that Trump’s capitulation is tied to his survival and very possibly the survival of his family.

To be clear, Paul Preston is the original source of this event. My purpose is to connect the dots on a wider scale because this explains so much more than the avoidance of an assassination.

Why would the Deep State want Trump assassinated?

To answer that question, I think it is prudent to take a look back at JFK and ask the same question and I have spoken previously on each and everyone of these reasons.

I spent 25 years examining the JFK assassination and the reasons why he was assassinated and I arrived at the following conclusions:

  1. The Federal Reserve wanted JFK dead over the silver certificates which threatened to one day supplant the Federal Reserve Note.
  2. JFK wanted to reduce/eliminate the oil depletion allowance which provided a huge, yet undeserved tax break that the average taxpayer did not receive.
  3. JFK was talking nuclear arms reduction with the Soviets, through back channels. His American University Speech in May of 1963 spoke of stopping above ground nuclear testing. The multi-pronged ownership of what Eisenhower feared and called, the military industrial complex, stood to lose a lot of money. In fact, within 60 days of JFK’s death, LBJ ordered the single biggest increase in nuclear arms production in our country’s history. The ownership of the military industrial complex intertwines with the ownership of the oil and banking interests in this country.
  4. JFK was dismantling the sacred cows of Washington DC (e.g. CIA director Allen Dulles) and replacing them with his own appointees to carry out his programs and not the plans of the elite.
  5. JFK was clearly going to kill the elite’s plans for engaging in the Vietnam War. Had JFK lived, the advisors, assigned to Vietnam, would have been recalled by December of 1964. The failure of JFK to deliver this war would have cost the establishment (e.g. members of the Federal Reserve, the military industrial complex, etc) a lot of money. If there was not Vietnam war, the drug trafficking from the “Golden Triangle” could not have been further exploited by the elite.
  6. JFK also had a French reporter secretly negotiating with Castro at the time of the assassination. The elite could not have had peace breaking out, it would have been a profit killer. So, it was easier to kill a President.

Federal Court Proves Gov’t Loyalty To Big Pharma, Rules CBD Has No Medical Value

The United States hemp industry was dealt a major blow on Monday after the federal U.S.  9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a decision by the Drug Enforcement Agency to list cannabidiol, commonly referred to as CBD, which is a non-psychoactive cannabis derivative, as a Schedule 1 controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act.

The hemp industry brought a lawsuit against the government in 2016, when the DEA issued a “clarifying rule” that claimed CBD was an illicit drug, due to it being a byproduct of cannabis flowers. A report in the Denver Post explained:

Represented by Denver-based cannabis law firm Hoban Law Group, the Hemp Industries Association and other hemp businesses challenged the DEA’s rule and alleged the agency overstepped its bounds by essentially scheduling substances — notably cannabinoids — that were not classified as illicit in the Controlled Substances Act. Additionally, they argued, the hemp-derived extracts rich in CBD, or cannabinol, are protected under state laws and Farm Bill provisions.

The rule could be misinterpreted by other federal and local agencies, lead to unlawful product seizures and chill a booming multibillion-dollar hemp products industry, Hoban attorneys had said.

The DEA countered by claiming that they had simply provided clarification to existing law, stating that their move “makes no substantive change to the government’s control of any substance.”

Rather than acknowledge the distinct difference between industrial hemp, which contains virtually no psychoactive properties, and THC-laden marijuana that produce strong psychoactive effects, the DEA argued that CBD is made from the flowering parts of the cannabis plant, and cannabinoids “are found in the parts of the cannabis plant that fall within the … definition of marijuana, such as the flowering tops, resin, and leaves.”

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed that the DEA had the authority to clarify CBD as a “marijuana extract,” but CBD producers vowed to appeal the decision.

We will be appealing, and we will be funding that appeal,” said Michael Brubeck, CEO of Centuria Natural Foods and a plaintiff in the case. Centuria was joined in its challenge by the Hemp Industries Association.

In the decision, the three-judge panel said the plaintiffs had failed to take the opportunity to comment during the DEA’s rule-making process, thus nullifying the majority of their challenge to the classification.

Additionally, the court said the rule was not in violation of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (Farm Bill), which contained industrial hemp provisions that defined hemp as cannabis sativa L. plants with less than 0.3 percent concentration of psychoactive THC.

“The Agricultural Act contemplates potential conflict between the Controlled Substances Act and pre-empts it,”the judges wrote.

Attorney Bob Hoban, in a statement on Wednesday, said his clients are weighing whether to request a rehearing due to concerns about the safety and security of those who make and sell hemp extracts, including CBD.

“Though we appreciate the court’s finding in favor of the legitimacy of the Farm Bill’s hemp amendment, we are still disappointed with the court’s findings that the final rule does not interfere with lawful, hemp-related business activities, as even 29 members of Congress confirmed in their Amicus Brief to the Court,” Hoban wrote. “Given the pervasive confusion and irreconcilable conflicts of the law that have led to product seizures, arrests and criminal charges against those involved in the lawful hemp industry, the petitioners believe that the final rule must be invalidated, absent the court clarifying and further resolving these conflicts and their severe consequences.”

Interestingly, an advisory committee for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in mid-April approved the first pharmaceutical grade cannabidiol (CBD) medicine to treat severe epilepsy. In a unanimous decision, the committee voted to recommend GW Pharmaceuticals drug Epidiolex for approval.

There is a clear movement afoot to take a natural product like CBD oil and turn it into an FDA approved drug—something that clearly has the potential to limit the access people have to a natural medicine. Motherboard reported last year on the drug industry lobbying for legislation that would outlaw CBD oil by classifying it as a drug.

The report also noted that “corporate lobbyists in more than 20 states are currently pushing to make sure the pharmaceutical industry has the only legal supply of CBD.” Thus, it appears the Big Pharma takeover of CBD is well underway.

Last month Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced legislation that would legalize hemp as an agricultural product. The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 would also remove the product from the federal government’s schedule of controlled substances while authorizing it to be sold as an agricultural commodity. The bill is co-sponsored by Sens. Ron Wyden and Rand Paul.

Forward-thinking lawmakers in cannabis-friendly Colorado have already passed a bill to regulate hemp products, including CBD, like food products. The bill currently awaits the signature of Gov. John Hickenlooper.

Politician Claims ‘Rothschild’s Control The World Bank & Federal Government, As We All Know’



Next Story

Within the past five years alone, it’s truly amazing just how many people have become aware of important information that was once, absurdly, labelled as a mere conspiracy theory. There are too many examples to list, with perhaps the latest being the UFO footage that was just released by the Pentagon, or perhaps, the Edward Snowden NSA surveillance leaks are better example. Prior to these leaks, if you told somebody that the government (intelligence agencies) were spying on you and that they were using your TV, phone, computer and more to do so, you’d probably get a few raised eyebrows.

So, on a positive note, it’s very encouraging to know that the world is waking up and another fact, which some people still enjoy placing in the conspiracy realm is that a few families, such as the Rotschild’s, completely control the World Bank and multiple federal governments. By control, we mean they basically own the money supply as well as having high ownership in global resources, thus controlling global geo-politics and more.

The Politician

Before you continue, keep in mind that a number of politicians of high rank have brought up similar issues. Trayon White Sr (D-Ward 8) may not be a high-ranking politician, but he represents the awareness that’s creeping into the system and bringing up some important points.

In a Mayor’s Council breakfast on the 27th of February, he stated that “The Rotschild’s control the World Bank, as we all know….They really pretty much control the federal government, and now they have this concept called resilient cities in which they are using their money and influence into local cities.”

White’s comments have been painted as anti-Semitic, but they’re not at all…he is in no way insulting or discriminating against Jewish people.

You can view the footage of his comments from the Washington Post HERE.

Prior to these comments, he accused the family of weather manipulation. Media also branded these comments as racist, as they were directed towards Jewish bankers. The funny thing about his comments here, is that weather manipulation is quite a serious issue called geoengineering, and you can learn more about that from these articles, among others, that we’ve written about the subject:

Saudi Princess Says Geoengineering is a Weapon of Mass Destruction

CIA Director States on Camera His Support For Geoengineering

The Sky is Going To Be Sprayed With Toxic Particles In a Geoengineering Experiment Blocking Out The Sunlight

What’s Really Going On? 

As most of you reading this probably already feel, it’s hard to see how we really live in a democracy. With elections full of fraud and deceit, and the corporate stranglehold that currently plagues the American government, it’s quite clear that it’s not the people making the decisions, but a group of powerful people with specific interests.

Foster Gamble, heir to the Procter & Gamble corporation who took a different path then that of, as he puts it, “being groomed for the establishment,” puts it quite well:

“As difficult as it was for me, I’ve come to an inescapable and profoundly disturbing conclusion. I believe that an elite group of people and the corporations they run have gained control over not just our energy, food supply, education, and healthcare, but over virtually every aspect of our lives: and they do it by controlling the world of finance. Not by creating more value, but by actually controlling the source of money.” 

This quote comes from Gamble’s documentary film, Thrive , which has now been viewed over 100 million times worldwide.

A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many, and various, and powerful interests, combined into one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in the banks.  – John C. Calhoun, 7th Vice President of the United States (source)

The following image outlines the structure of this ‘corporatocracy,’

And here is another great quote from John F. Hylan,

“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its legs over our cities, states and nation…The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties…(and) control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in the country.” (source)(source)

And another that really gets this point across,

“Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great staffs, both of the old parties have ganged aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them in marshalling [sic] to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government.” – Theodore Roosevelt

This secretive and shadowy government represents the Deep State, a term now used to describe the stranglehold those who control this Deep State have on global politics and economics.

We’ve written a couple of articles that go a little more in-depth about the Deep State, they’re linked below for more information:

An In Depth Look Into Who Really Controls The US Governments Deep State – Because It’s Not The People

The Rothschild’s

Who are the Rothschild’s? They’re a family, descending from a court factor, which was, long ago, a Jewish banker who dealt with the finances of European royalty and nobility, in the time when the land was full of states controlled by the Roman Empire.  In exchange for their services they gained special privileges, including being considered as high nobility within society.  The family was considered to be of high ranking by the Holy Roman Empire.

As you can see, the relationship between the Rotschild’s, the Roman aristocracy and Royal families has long been established, and remains till this day. They basically created and run international finance, along with a few other families like the Rockefeller’s. These are the names which control the where the money flows from, the World Bank as well as the Bank For International Settlements.

Perhaps it’s the Royal Families that sit above them?

Many people accuse these families of basically controlling the world, and it’s true. Today, corporations call the shots and work with governments, and, to some extent, actually dictate government policy. There are too many examples to name, the revolving door between Monsanto and the US Government is a great example.

Another example comes from a $100,000 a head fundraiser at the home of Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a prominent New York businesswoman and a member of the famous Rothschild banking family. A family that has been accused of, as Jay Syrmopoulos from The Free Thought Project  puts it, “pulling the strings of many different governments through their control of various economic systems throughout the world.” Prior to this fundraiser, Wikileaks Clinton emails release shed further light on Hillary’s relationship with the Rothschild family.

Above these corporations we have the banks and ultimately, if we want to know what’s going on, we really have to look at who controls the resources that run our world and that’s money, and other things such as oil etc…

The results always come back to the same name, the Rothschild’s, who also have big time oil interests in places like the Middle East – Syria is a great example of this.

At Least We Are Starting To SEE

Within the past 10 years alone, the planet has experienced a massive shift in consciousness. By this, I mean the way we think, feel, and perceive the human experience, as well as the true nature of reality, is changing. New information and facts, some of which are almost unbelievable and conflict with many belief systems, are rapidly coming to light, forcing us to open up to alternative views of the human experience and what’s really happening on our planet.

One thing is for certain, not all is as it seems, and not all is as it’s presented. We’ve had to live and deal with a great deal of deception on this planet, but the moment we become aware of it (we are in the process), the moment it can not longer continue and begins to transform.

Joe Martino, founder of Collective Evolution made a film several years ago called The Collective Evolution III: The Shift. It is all about the shift in consciousness taking place, what’s going on and where humanity is headed. It’s presented in a way that can be passed across any group; those that view things through science, spirituality or who are on the fence. The purpose of the film was to bring these understandings to a grounded and practical space, where much of the human experience exists at this time. In the film, I go into great detail about the cosmic ray portion of the shift, which much of The Event refers to. I’d recommend watching the film for further understanding.
