They Are Criminals • Too Big To Jail?

As it turns out, the Federal Reserve never intended to unwind the radical balance sheet expansion it began 7 years ago at all, as one of the central purposes of the Fed programs—was to cover up the very Wall Street crimes that caused the meltdown of 2008 in the first place. This video by John Titus of BestEvidence published Sep 14, 2015 uses the Fed’s own documentation to illustrate the criminality.

“Planet Klepto” distinguishes itself from many other worthy efforts along the same lines in its granular treatment of untrammeled criminality driving Federal Reserve policy by lavishing attention on the Fed’s own words, charts, documents, projections, speeches, papers, spreadsheets and data.

IMF data shows Iceland’s economy recovered after it imprisoned bankers and let banks go bust – instead of bailing them out

We hear on the MSM how Greece’s debt problem needs to be solved by lending them more money: issuing more new debt to pay the old debts. Brilliant. Use a new credit card to pay off some of the old credit cards. • Iceland allowed bankers to be prosecuted as criminals – in contrast to the US and Europe, where banks were fined, but chief executives escaped punishment……

ISIS : The Useful Enemy, Its Origins & More

MUST-SEE Video: Ron Paul Institute Director Daniel McAdams appears on Ben Swann’s excellent documentary on the real origins of ISIS, everybody’s favorite enemy. The dark force of ISIS is apparently an invincible and unstoppable war juggernaut that is mercilessly killing and conquering in pursuit of establishing an Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. In reality, however, it is not as out of control as it appears. It is, indeed, carefully controlled and managed by its creators and supporters…..

Why did MH17 Disappear From Media Coverage? …As Ukraine Crisis Continues

Malaysian press charges Ukraine government shot down MH 17
A Thursday article in the New Straits Times, Malaysia’s flagship English-language newspaper, charged the US- and European-backed Ukrainian regime in Kiev with shooting down Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 in east Ukraine last month.

The US and European media have buried this remarkable report, which refutes the wave of allegations planted by the CIA in international media claiming that Russian president Vladimir Putin was responsible for the destruction of MH17, without presenting any evidence to back up this charge.

The New Straits Times article, titled “US analysts conclude MH17 downed by aircraft,” lays out evidence that Ukrainian fighter aircraft attacked the jetliner with first a missile, then with bursts of 30-millimeter machine gun fire from both sides of MH17…..
Worse yet, Washington’s demonization of Vladimir Putin has been so successful in the American press and public, and its secrecy about the American role in Kiev, has left the public in the United States and in NATO Europe convinced that this has all been the result of a Russian strategy of aggressive expansion into Ukraine, and not a bungled and essentially American attempt to annex Ukraine to NATO and the European Union, and to undermine the domestic political position of President Putin — which all has gone badly and dangerously wrong……

BRICS Announce $100 Billion Reserve To Bypass Fed, Developed World Central Banks

story posted: 07/15/2014 23:38
As the world slowly turns against US Dollar hegemony, it appears the BRICS are pressing to fill any gaps. Having created the BRICS Bank “alternate to The West-controlled IMF or World Bank,” Xinhua reports that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov believes the BRICS mechanism has been fully developed and can now transform into a political alliance to “reform the international financial system.”

The BRICS Bank will be based in Shanghai and chaired by Russia.

Using bilateral swaps, the BRICS are effectively disintermediating themselves from a Fed and other “developed world” central-bank dominated world and will provide their own funding.

As Putin explains, this is part of “a system of measures that would help prevent the harassment of countries that do not agree with some foreign policy decisions made by the United States and their allies.”

What Does The US Government Want in Ukraine?

Why are people protesting in eastern Ukraine? Because they do not believe the government that came to power after the US-backed uprising in February is legitimate. They do not recognize the authority of an unelected president and prime minister.

Ron Paul Asks “What Does The US Government Want in Ukraine?”

The US sees this as a Russian-sponsored destabilization effort, but is it so hard to understand that the people in Ukraine may be annoyed with the US and EU for their involvement in regime change in their country?

Ukraine Fallout? Petro-Dollar Threatened

Recent developments in the wake of Ukraine point to a shift in the Global Financial system that is indeed underway. Sadly, this story is not presented in the Mainstream Media.

In the interview below, Dr. Jim Willie contends that most American will not even comprehend the question if asked about the “Petro-Dollar”.

The following interview with Paul Sandhu will be a jaw-dropping eye-opener if you are new to this information.

This is two hours of must-hear Insight and breakdown. If you care to know what is really going on in the Global Economy and Financial System Dr.Jim WIllie lays it all out here.

After the interview, see the recent headlines & developments that support the points Dr. Willie has presented.

Could Sanctions Against Russia Backfire?

As the effectiveness of the Fed’s Quantitative Easing fades, weakening its ability to buoy the markets and foster the illusion of a recovery it must maintain the taper in order to save face. As more and more data starts to poke holes in the recovery story, the writing is on the wall. The Dollar’s dominance is a house of cards. Those pulling the strings are aware of this and do not want to be blamed as the mathematic certainty plays itself out and the cards start to fall.

We all now by now, hopefully, that the events in Ukraine were moved along with help from the west and it’s banking interests, from the paid militants and snipers to the installed puppet technocrat banker as the new “Prime Minister”.

The situation in Ukraine is starting to look like an act of desperation by those trying to maintain the Dollar’s standing. But could this desperation end up backfiring?

The video interview at the end of this post will shed some light on the Fed and its potential scapegoating.

“The Americans threaten Russia with sanctions and involve the EU in economic and trade war with Russia. Regarding the possible effects of these sanctions can say the following: most of sanctions against Russia will suffer the U.S. itself, because if we talk about trade relations with America, we did them not depend. Treasuries We keep a decent amount – more than $ 200 billion, and if the United States against us dare to apply sanctions to freeze accounts of Russian enterprises and citizens, we can no longer view America as a reliable partner and we encourage all to dump U.S. Treasuries , dump the dollar as the currency in which we can not be sure and leave the U.S. market. ”

The bigger question is if indeed, as some have suggested, China were to ally with Russia, and proceed to follow Russia in its reciprocal isolation of the US, by expanding trade with Russia on non-USD based terms, and also continue selling bonds as it did in December, when it dumped the second largest amount of US paper in history.

Ukraine: More History and Perspective Not in the MSM Evening News

In this short video from James Corbett of & Boiling Frogs Post for Global Research TV more insight is given to the recent history of events leading up to the current crisis in Ukraine.

He touches on the foreign funding and backing (from Nato, US, EU) for the destabilization, the roots of the conflict and if it is sewing the seeds for the next major war.

From the 2004 protests dubbed as the Orange Revolution, which was one of a series of revolutions which swept the former Soviet Republics to the latest western-sponsored campaign Corbett will touch on the side of the story not being touched at all in the mainstream media.

It also includes the (now infamous) phone call that Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland was having with the US Ambassador to Ukraine dictating who the US wanted in and out of the supposedly grass-roots supported interim government, her admission that the US had already pumped $5 Billion into the funding of th Ukranian opposition, the appointment of another central banker as interim Prime Minister……and much more.

It might be a more wonderful world if the US president would not only read from his tele-prompter that it is vital to respect the sovereignty of a nation but if he and his cronies would actually honor that principle.

The Real Numbers Behind America’s Phony Recovery Illusion

when one strips away the retroactively adjusted GDP, the seasonally adjusted (and politically mandated) counting of temp jobs, the constantly upward revised jobless claims, the Fed’s $4+ trillion balance sheet of course, and even the declining (yes, declining) real disposable income per capita, what one is left with is the lowest loan creation out of a recession (or depression) in history, and is at indexed levels last seen during the Lehman collapse over five years ago!
