As a human being we are often troubled for no reason. We wake up one day and don’t want to do anything. On some days we feel so negative that we don’t want to see anyone and just want to be alone in our misery. At those times we feel that there is nothing we can do to feel better. We forget that we are not alone. We forget that our body and our life come from the Earth and that the Earth is our Mother. Mother Earth has been ignored for so long that we all forget she is here to help us. When troubles come, turn to your Mother in the Earth and ask for her assistance!
As long as there have been human beings, there has also been our Mother in the Earth watching over us. She has seen everything that we have done since the very beginning of Time. She has seen the worst side of human behavior, but she is still our Mother and will do anything she can to help us.
If you need energy, she will give it to you. If you are feeling anger or negative emotions, you can give them to her and she will receive them with love. Mother Earth is the best mother we could ever hope for. She is full of so much love and understanding for us as human beings. No matter how bad we have been, no matter how long we have forgotten to acknowledge her, she is ready to receive us as one of her children and help us with all her heart.
When your energy is low or you are feeling depressed, go to Mother Earth and ask her to give you empowerment. Put your hands on the ground or hug a tree. Feel the energy coming into your body. Bring the energy through your arms and into your heart. Feel this energy coming directly into your body from the immense body of Mother Earth. Absorb this energy into your body for ten minutes and say thank you when you are finished.
When all of your troubles get to you and you feel so upset that you just want to scream, remember that you are not alone. Remember that your Mother Earth is right there with you and really wants to comfort you no matter how awful you are feeling. She will never reject you! Go to Mother Earth and put your hands on the ground. Feel your anger and all your negative emotions and ask Mother Earth to take them from you. Send all your negative energy into the ground and let it go. Allow Mother Earth to receive it from you and transform it into renewed Life Force. She is a wonderful magician who can transform negative energy into positive creative Life Force and bring renewal to everything in Nature. Do not be afraid of her. She is ready to receive even the worst things you have buried in your heart. All you have to do is let go and give them to her. She is our Mother in Earth. She is not in Heaven. She is right here with us every day. She is truly the best Mother we could ever want. She is ready to help you right now. Go to her and ask for her help. Don’t forget to say thank you!

A couple years ago, I posted two videos entitled ‘The Neutralization of Chemtrails is Real’. I attributed this neutralization to what I’ll call certain higher forces, and I wholeheartedly believed chemtrails were being neutralized because of two factors:
1: For a while, I hardly saw them appear in my area. They were few and far between, and it seemed for a moment that the powers had somehow lost their ability to spray them around here.
I started noticing them less and less, and this was around the time I became aware of the idea that higher spiritual forces are overseeing our planet’s affairs and helping us with the more destructive things the cabal’s doing.
2: When I did see them, I’d notice a layer of cloudlike energy around them that seemed to thin them and make them dissipate. I still see this cloudlike energy every now and then, and I still notice that it seems to diminish chemtrails when it’s around.
I’m not the only one who’s posted videos about the neutralization of chemtrails, and a part of me still does believe this neutralization could be occurring.
I couldn’t tell you exactly which higher force could be helping us neutralize them (some think that air elementals known as ‘sylphs’ are responsible for them), but I notice that some type of effort seems to be ongoing to help us out with them.
However, lately, I notice that chemtrails seem to have returned to this area. I notice them at least three times a week, and I notice that they’re especially strong at night.
Any potential neutralization aside, this leads me to want to encourage us all to continue to be active in exposing the truth about them and, hopefully, bringing them to an end in a time when the will of the people has trumped the will of the ‘elite’.
I started to feel like I was going against the grain of the alternative awareness I and so many others strive to bring to humanity, and the last thing I want to do is align myself against the truth-seekers who’ve diligently exposed chemtrails by boldly claiming we have nothing to worry about because they’re being neutralized.
I’m open to the idea that some type of neutralization could be taking place – perhaps on the part of the aforementioned elementals, who are believed to oversee our environmental affairs – but for the most part, I think we need to continue to actively raise awareness of the fact that they’re being sprayed.
So much is being done to keep us too poisoned or pacified to speak out against the ‘elitist’ forces who strive to keep us all in the dark, and the worst thing we can do is comply with their control by looking the other way in the name of the idea that we’re being ‘saved’ by the higher spiritual forces.
I do believe these higher forces exist, but I think their assistance is geared toward helping us empower ourselves; helping us rediscover our innate spiritual essence and use it to find enlightenment and help the rest of the planet do the same.
If circumstances permit, I’m sure certain higher forces will help us neutralize chemtrails and the general pollution/environmental destruction this planet faces on a daily basis, but I don’t think we should look to any higher forces to solve our environmental problems for us or singlehandedly stop the cabal’s antics.
I think it’s up to us to recognize that what the cabal’s doing is very real and work from there to stop their crimes against humanity, and one of the best ways to do this is to refuse to fall into complacency – especially under the guise that the forces helping us evolve will take care of it all for us.
This is our planet and our responsibility, and the sooner we arise and do exactly what we’ve come here to do – use our growing spiritual perspective to help create change – the sooner we can bring an end to chemtrails, general weather warfare, and everything else the cabal’s doing to keep us in states of poor health.
I think we need to return to the natural way of life that was once common here on earth – a way of life that doesn’t promote the use of advanced technology for weather warfare, nor complacency over the fact that this technology’s being used against humanity.
Even though I do believe we’re being given assistance with various aspects of our ongoing spiritual evolution, I have no more desire to claim we’re being ‘saved’ by a higher spiritual force who’s doing a lot but who looks to us to heal this planet ourselves.
We have a lot of work to do to change the purposefully broken manner in which this planet’s run, but we can only successfully do this work if we recognize that the things the cabal’s doing are very real and are in need of discussion and eventual healing.
I think we need to come together and talk about the things that are being done to keep us physically and spiritually pacified, and I propose that everyone who’s aware of chemtrails begin filming and talking about them. A lot of people have already done this, but could you imagine how big the issue would become if we all got active?
Can you imagine how much awareness we could raise if every single person who’s aware of chemtrails started filming them and giving their perspective on them? We don’t necessarily want to manifest an energy of rebellion by ceaselessly fighting against injustice as we perceive it, but we don’t want to allow these things to keep happening by falling into complacency either.
We want to raise awareness, but we want to do it from a place of acceptance and understanding that rebelling against the old paradigm as we perceive it will keep us trapped in a state of spiritual servitude. I think there’s a healthy middle ground we can embrace; a mindset that encourages raising awareness but discourages falling into an ‘us vs. them’ mindset.
Awareness is very important, and we can raise it from a perspective that understands the necessity of this ‘light vs. dark’ battle that seems to be playing out here on earth. Everything we’re experiencing is necessary for one reason or another, and it’s all related to the plan for our collective spiritual evolution.
In my opinion, an aspect of this evolution is to use our voices; speak out against the obvious injustices that occur every day, and in regards to chemtrails, the best way to do this is to grab the ol’ video camera and start filming this injustice, which is there for everyone to see, plain as day.
The more people who wholeheartedly contribute to the rising awareness, the more progress we’ll make in exposing what the cabal’s done and eventually putting a stop to it. I don’t think we can complacently wait for any higher spiritual force to make these changes for us, even though our higher selves, guides, etc. are believed to be doing a lot for our little planet, and the responsibility to make a change is ours entirely.
The neutralization of chemtrails is our responsibility, not the responsibility of any spiritual force, and the sooner we recognize this, the sooner we can use our awareness for positive and progressive purposes. Let’s be the spiritual system busters we’ve come here to be, and let’s do it with absolute assurance of the fact that changing this world is our job.
I’ll probably start filming chemtrails when I notice them, and hopefully, the rest of you will do the same.

The scenario how the Orion monetary system will collapse in the End Time prior to the MPR and our Ascension is not only part of my and your creationary visions and activities as Logos Gods, but also a self-fulfilling prophecy for the dark secret services in the USA and the West. It is not that our predictions of an imminent financial crash is a figment of our innate desire to leave this reality as soon as possible, knowing all too well that it can only happen after the old matrix has fully crumbled. because we are needed here to the very end to keep the light quotient and the energetic equilibrium. Our dark opponents cherish the same outcome for completely different reasons.
And when I say that our presence guarantees the energetic equilibrium on Gaia with her numerous timelines, I mean exactly this. For instance, this week we had dozens of MPR on very near-by 4D timelines that have been separated from this upper mother planet and have gone under. Both, Carla and I experienced the physical devastation, the grief and the desperation of the people in a very physical and emotional manner. In addition, I am sensing very strongly the culmination of aggression and the helplessness of the dark Western cabal, watching how all their plans for the NWO are crashing in front of their eyes. The reasons for this failure have been elucidated in the collection of articles I have published yesterday and today (actually since more than a week) on major financial and economic developments that will topple down the Orion house of cards very soon.
Not only are we the ones who develop and envision scenarios as to how the Orion monetary system will collapse, but also all dark secret services such as the CIA. They want to control everything, even the financial crash they have prepared for so long – most of it by the archons at the 4D level and less so at the level of the ego-minds of their dark human stooges in the CIA But we are playing on the same chessboard the same game. Or to quote Lenin during the Russian revolution – “who whom” which is the short version of “who will destroy whom”. We, the light warriors of the first and the last hour – the dark elite in power with their Orion matrix, or the dark ones will be able to establish the NWO and enslave humanity. The dices have fallen and we are the glorious victors.
Everything we now observe in this reality is subordinate to this ultimate strategy. On this planet a perennial war is being waged since the Fall of Atlantis and even much earlier. Only the New Age community seems to be blind for this omnipresent fact.
Departing from this point of view, you should read the following survey with a salt of grain. It is the purported CIA version of the financial crash. As they know that it is unavoidable, they try to push their version among the masses in order to have control over this precipitous event. This is their greatest illusion as the coming crash will exceed anything they have seen so far and will bury them under the rubble. There is no way how they can avoid this destiny.
The plot has long shifted in favour of the forces of light. In a previous article the Russian author explained how Putin is now playing chest with the West to their rules and have already made them “checkmate“. The strategy is fairly simple, you use the enemy’s weapon to destroy him. In this case Putin and Russia use the artificial situation, where the gold price is kept low by the USA and the West to keep the dollar high. Russia is using its revenues, still in dollar for the most part, to accumulate cheap physical gold on the COMEX. Thus Putin crashes both, the gold market and the dollar. Because there is not enough physical gold in the West anymore to keep this Ponzi scheme any longer. The failed repatriation of German gold proves this. At the same time Russia is creating its own oil, gas and natural resources markets away from the dollar, essentially based on its gold reserves. China and the BRICS are following suit. This is the death of the petrodollar as Putin recently announced in an interview to the Chinese media at the APEC meeting with great pleasure: “The fall of the dollar as world currency will be a bliss for the rest of humanity”.
The Americans are now playing Russian roulette, but the deadly silver bullet is already reserved for the FED – the crash of the toilet paper dollar as world currency is unavoidable and already evident to many people.
The article below addresses this issue from the US and CIA perspective. But the data given there is valid and contains the basic parameters and variables that determine the collapse of the Orion-FED monetary system. These factors are active since long time and most of these economic parameters have been discussed at length in my previous articles. Hence nothing really new.
The new aspect is that the Orion secret services in the West are also expecting the crash as much as we do. I knew this for a long time but now we have the best and most reliable proof that it will come. It is desired by both sides – by the dark elite on power and by us, the new Logos Gods. Only with opposite ends. The dark elite want to use the crash to establish the NWO, but will only reap its demise and a descent to lower, dreadful timelines. We want the crash because this will be the end of this toxic reality and ascension to higher dimensions for Gaia and part of humanity where a new enlightend civilisation will be established.
This is how this and any other holographic reality is created – with common visions that create a powerful superimposed standing wave of creation, within which the dialectics of opposites will bring divergent destinies – here death and destruction for the dark cabal, there, beyond the veil of 4D, a new sparkling reality of the new transgalactic humanity.
The Death of Money: Project Prophecy 2.0
Watch the full interview here:
Transcript of the Interview
My name is Steve Meyers.
And I want to thank you for taking part in this exclusive Money Morning interview with Jim Rickards, the Financial Threat and Asymmetric Warfare Advisor for both the Pentagon and CIA.
Recently, all 16 branches of our Intelligence Community have come together to release a shocking report.
These agencies, that include the CIA, FBI, Army, and Navy, they’ve already begun to estimate the impact of the fall of the dollar as the global reserve currency.
And our reign as the world’s leading super power being annihilated in a way equivalent to the end of the British Empire, post-World War II.
And the end game could be a nightmarish scenario, where the world falls into an extended period of global anarchy.
Jim Rickards fears he and his colleagues’ warnings are being ignored by our political leaders and the Federal Reserve, and we’re on the verge of entering the darkest economic period in our nation’s history.
One that will ignite a 25-year Great Depression.
Today, we’re going to examine everything he’s uncovered because the bedlam could begin within the next six months.
Which is why every American should hear his warnings before it’s too late.
Jim Rickards, thank you for joining us.
It’s my pleasure, Steve. Glad to be with you.
In the early ’80s, you were a member of the team that helped negotiate an end to the Iran hostage crisis.
In the late ’90s, when it was discovered that the Wall Street firm Long-Term Capital Management was about to cause a total collapse of the financial markets, the Federal Reserve had to turn to you in order to stop this catastrophe from plunging America into a recession.
And then, after 9/11, you were tasked by the CIA with investigating potential insider trading that took place prior to the terrorist attacks.
That’s exactly right.
The problem was the CIA didn’t have any capital markets expertise.
And why should they?
Prior to the beginning of globalization, capital markets weren’t really part of the battle space.
So the CIA engaged in some outreach, they recruited certain people, myself included, to bring the Wall Street expertise to the agency.
This Led to Project Prophecy
So, what the CIA said was, well, if there’s going to be another spectacular attack…
Using price signals to determine the actions of participants in the market, whether it be terrorists, or strategic rivals of the United States…
Could you spot it?
Could you get the information, and actually break up the plot, and save American lives?
This system you built with Project Prophecy actually predicted a terrorist attack that was thwarted in 2006.
On August 7, 2006, I got an email from my partner.
She said, “Jim, we’ve got a bright signal on American Airlines.
It looks like a possible terrorist attack.”
We documented that.
I was up at 2:00 in the morning in my study, watching CNN, and all of a sudden MI-5 and New Scotland Yard emerged to break up this terrorist attack.
They were arresting suspects and removing files.
So this showed that the system worked.
However, it’s not just good for predicting terrorist attacks, but also strategic attacks by rivals and enemies of the United States.
For years now, you’ve been helping the Pentagon and CIA prepare for a rise in asymmetric warfare and financial threats, because today there are immense fears we’ll be struck by – as you’ve described it before – a financial Pearl Harbor.
There’s now concern in different branches of the U.S. government…
Historically in Washington, the Treasury and the Fed take care of the dollar.
The Pentagon and the Intelligence Community take care of other threats, but what happens when the dollar IS the threat?
Americans generally know that:
The Fed has increased the money supply by $3.1 trillion.
We have $17.5 trillion of debt.
We have $127 trillion of unfunded liabilities.
What are those?
Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, student loans, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA.
You go through the whole list and it goes on and on and on.
There’s no way to pay it.
Debt can no longer be used to artificially grow our economy.
During the boom years of the 1950s and 1960s, every dollar of debt that was created, we got $2.41 worth of economic growth.
So that was pretty good bang for the buck.
But by the “stagflation” of the late 1970s that relationship had actually collapsed.
So now for a dollar of debt in the late 1970s, we were only getting $.41 in growth, so, obviously, that’s a huge drop-off.
You know what that number is today? Today, we only get $.03 in growth for every $1 of debt.
So we’re piling on the debt, but we’re getting less and less growth.
As the trend goes from $2.41 to $.41 to $.03…
It’s soon going to go negative.
This is a signal of a complex system about to collapse.
This really speaks to what you wrote about in your new book, The Death of Money, the title strongly alludes to this, the hourglass is now empty.
You warn we’re about to fall into a 25-year Great Depression…
That the stock market could plunge overnight 70%.
You know, when I use the phrase 25-year depression, it sounds a little extreme, but historically it’s not.
We had a 30-year depression in the United States from about 1870 to 1900. Economists actually call it the Long Depression.
That was before the Great Depression. The Great Depression lasted from 1929 to 1940, so that was quite long.
The U.S. is in a Depression Today
A lot of folks might disagree with you that we’re currently in a depression.
That word brings to mind images of the 1930s and soup kitchens.
Well, we have soup kitchens today…
They’re just at Whole Foods and your local supermarket, because 50 million Americans are on food stamps.
It’s not that we don’t have distress.
We have enormous distress, but it’s being hidden in different ways.
The unemployment rate today is actually 23% when you calculate it the right way.
And you point the finger right at the Fed, Congress, and the White House.
I was in a meeting in the Treasury and I said:
“The Fed and the Treasury are the greatest threats to national security, not Al- Qaeda.”
Right here in this building with this group…
You people are destroying the dollar and it’s just a matter of time before it collapses.
And I testified before the United States Senate about this.
I warned the Senate, maybe we can’t stop earthquakes on the San Andreas Fault…
But nobody thinks it’s a good idea to send the Army Corps of Engineers out there to make the San Andreas Fault bigger.
But by money printing, credit creation, and reckless monetary policy by the Fed, we’re making the San Andreas Fault bigger every day.
And when you make a complex system bigger – the risk doesn’t go up a little bit – it goes up exponentially. So the risk is unimaginable at this time.
The collapse hasn’t happened yet, but the forces are building up and it’s just about to snap.

Jim, your take, and that of many in the Intelligence Community…
Is much different than what we’re hearing out of Capitol Hill.
Which is why the allegations you make in this book are causing quite a controversy in Washington.
I was at a recent conclave in the Rocky Mountains with a couple central bankers, one from the Federal Reserve and one from the Bank of England.
They’ll say things privately that they won’t say publicly.
And I was handed a copy of Janet Yellen’s playbook.
The Fed is trying to kind of use propaganda…
Lie to us about economic prospects, talk about green shoots, use happy talk to try to get us to spend our money.
The Fed doesn’t know what they’re doing.
Don’t ever think that they know what they’re doing.
You can print all the money you want, but if people are not borrowing it, if they’re not spending it, then your economy is collapsing, even with money printing.
So you can understand it this way…
Let’s say I go out to dinner and I tip the waiter.
And the waiter takes my tip and he takes a taxicab home.
And the taxi driver takes the fare and puts some gas in her taxicab.
Well, in that example, my dollar had the velocity of three.
$1 supported $3 of goods and services: the tip, the taxi ride, and the gasoline.
But, what if I don’t feel great? I stay home, and watch television.
I don’t spend any money.
Well, that money now has a velocity of zero.
I leave my money in the bank, but I don’t spend it.
Let’s look at what’s actually happening with the velocity of money.
It’s plunging… It’s going down very rapidly.
But compare this decline of velocity today to what we saw leading up the Great Depression.
Now, in the depths of the Great Depression velocity was even lower…
If you compare what’s going on today to what happened in the late 1920s just prior to the Great Depression, there’s a very striking resemblance.
So, it doesn’t matter how much money the Fed prints.
Think of it as an airplane that’s coming in for a nosedive.
It’s crashing… crashing… getting closer to the ground.
The Fed is trying to grab the joystick and pull the plane up out of the nosedive and get it back in the air…
But, unfortunately, it’s not working, we’re heading for a crash.
We’ve just covered a lot of these startling numbers, these signals of this coming Great Depression.
Let me see if I can quickly put it all together.
Nobody denies that we have a debt crisis in this country, but you’re saying we can no longer grow our debt without causing our economy to aggressively slow down.
We’re barely above water now.
So that’s signal number one.
Signal number two is this dangerous slowdown in our velocity of money.
It’s already plummeting to levels not witnessed since the Great Depression in the 1930s.
Are there any other signals the Intelligence Community is monitoring that suggest this collapse is right around the corner?
Editor’s Note: Jim Rickards reveals the early warning signs the U.S. Intelligence Community is tracking in advance of this coming 25-year Great Depression in his book,The Death of Money.

There are, Steve.
There are a lot of signals out there and they’re very, very troubling.
One of the ones I’m watching closely, and I know people in the Intelligence Community focus on also, because it covers so much ground, is called the Misery Index.
The Misery Index = Real Inflation Rate + Real Unemployment Rate
If you look at the Misery Index today compared to the period of stagflation in the late 1970s and early ’80s that Americans remember so well…
It’s actually worse.
This can lead to social instability…
Take this back to the Great Depression… The Misery Index in the Great Depression was 27.
Today it’s 32.89.
Believe it or not, it’s worse today than it was during the Great Depression.
What happens as a depression worsens?
Businesses can’t pay their debts. The bad losses fall on the banks. The banks ultimately fail.
That’s happened before.
The Fed has had to bail out the banks.
But what happens when the Fed, itself, is in jeopardy?
Based on these signals you’ve been tracking, the Federal Reserve is going to fail?
The Federal Reserve actually, in some ways, already has failed.
I spoke to a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and I said, “I think the Fed is insolvent.”
This Governor first resisted and said, “No, we’re not.”
But, I pressed her a little bit harder and she said, “Well, maybe.”
And, then, I just looked at her and she said, “Well, we are, but it doesn’t matter.”
In other words, here’s a Governor of the Federal Reserve admitting to me, privately, that the Federal Reserve is insolvent, but said, it doesn’t matter, because central banks don’t need capital.
Well, I’m going to suggest that central banks do need capital.
Look at this chart.
What it shows you is that the Fed has increased its capital they currently have about $56 billion.
That sounds good.
You say, “gee, $56 billion is a lot of money, that’s a pretty good capital base.”
But That’s Not the Whole Story
You have to compare the capital to the balance sheet.
How much in the way of assets and liabilities is that amount of capital supporting.
When you look at that it’s a much scarier picture, because the actual liabilities, or debt, if you will, on the Fed’s books is $4.3 trillion.
So you’ve got $4.3 trillion sitting on this little skinny capital base of $56 billion…
That’s very unstable.
Prior to 2008, the Fed’s leverage was about 22 to 1.
Meaning they had $22 in debt on their books for every $1 of capital.
Today, that leverage is 77 to 1.
So, yes, the capital has increased, but the debt and the liability has increased much more.
Your warnings haven’t gone completely ignored.
In the budget he presented this year, Senator Rand Paul cited your work and how we’ve driven our economy to the edge of a Roman Empire-like collapse.
In fact, we have footage of Senator Paul instructing Americans to listen to your warnings.
SENATOR RAND PAUL:
Jim Rickards notes the Fed is insolvent on a mark-to-market basis.
The Fed has wiped out its capital on a mark-to-market basis.
Of course, the Fed carries these notes on its balance sheet at cost and does not mark them down to market.
But if they did, they would be broke.
First of all, I give Senator Rand Paul credit.
He’s one of the few people who understand the dangers here.
But, the problem is not limited to the Fed.
It’s infecting the private banking system as well.
There’s about $60 trillion of debt on the balance sheets of our banking system.
For a long time, debt and the banks grew at about two times the rate of growth in the economy.
But lately, this has exploded.
Today it’s up to 30 to 1.
In other words, for every dollar of economic growth, there’s $30 of credit being created by the banking system.
The Whole Thing is Unstable
I can give you a very good example of this and this actually comes from physics.
If you had, let’s say, a 35-pound block of uranium shaped like a cube, it would actually be fairly harmless.
It’s what we call sub-critical. It’s radioactive, but it’s kind of tame.
But now imagine you engineer it.
You take that 35-pound block.
You take one piece and shape it into something about the size of a grapefruit.
Take another piece, shape it into something like a bat.
Put the ball and the bat in a tube and fire them together with high explosives.
That sets off a nuclear detonation.
That destroys a city.
The way it’s been shaped and configured is what takes it from what we call sub-critical to super-critical.
Jim, are you seeing any signs that our stock market has reached a super-critical state?
Well, unfortunately, yes.
We’re seeing a lot of signs of this.
One of the signs that’s really fundamental, and really important, is the ratio of stock market capitalization to GDP.
Because, remember, the value of all the stocks in the stock market, that’s supposed to represent the fundamental economy.
It’s not supposed to be off in a world of its own.
But if you look at what’s been happening to that ratio recently, it’s going sky-high.
Just prior to the recession…
That number was 183%.
Go back to the famous tech bubble, the dot com implosion of 2000.
At that time, it was 204%.
And if you want the scariest news of all…
Just prior to the Great Depression that number was 87%.
In other words…
The stock market capitalization, as a percentage of GDP, is twice as high as it was just prior to the Great Depression.
So, that’s a really good metric for saying, “Hey, is the stock market heading for a crash?”
All the data says, “Yes, we are.”
But there’s another metric, another warning sign, if you will, that’s even more frightening, which is the Gross Notional Value of Derivatives.
There are a certain number of shares of IBM that are outstanding, but we know what that number is.
But there’s no limit on the derivatives.
I can write options and futures on IBM stock all day long and all the other stocks on the stock market.
And that’s what’s been going on.
Now, the Gross Notional Value of Derivatives in the world today is over $700 trillion. Not billion.
That’s ten times the global GDP.
This collapse is unavoidable.
So, we ask ourselves, how bad can this be?
Well, what happened in 2007, 2008 when the markets collapsed…
We all remember the value of stocks going down…
Real estate going down, housing going down…
All that lost wealth was $60 trillion.
The problem is now the system is bigger, so I would expect the lost wealth this time to be $100 Trillion – possibly a lot more.
We’re in this critical state, getting close to the super-critical state where the system implodes.
But it takes a catalyst, it takes a flashpoint.
There are a number of potential flashpoints I’ve investigated.

Jim, in a few moments I want to discuss the steps Americans need to take with their investments and personal finances to prepare for everything you and your colleagues are predicting.
But now let’s quickly focus on some of these major flashpoints.
One of the key flashpoints we’re looking at is foreign ownership of U.S. government debt.
Now, this is a very important thing to understand.
We all know that the Treasury has issued over $17 trillion worth of debt, the question is who buys it?
A lot of U.S. debt is owned by foreigners. Who owns it?
China, Russia, other countries…
Countries that are not necessarily our friends.
But they can dump it when they want to.
Well, guess what, that’s actually what’s been going on.
Recently, foreign holdings of U.S. government debt have been plummeting.
But it gets even more interesting than that.
We talked earlier about the project I did for the CIA…
And we said, you can see not only market action, but rivals, enemies, terrorists and others, operating in financial markets.
So, we all know that Russia invaded Crimea in the spring of 2014.
Let’s say you’re Putin. You know you’re going to invade Crimea. You can expect U.S. financial sanctions.
So what do you do?
You basically mitigate the impact of the sanctions, start dumping treasuries in advance so that when you make your move and the Treasury tries to come against you, you’ve insulated yourself.
So go back and look at October 2013, here’s Russia dumping Treasuries month after month.
That was a clear signal that they were getting ready to do something…
To engage in financial warfare against the United States.
But guess what? It’s worse than that.
We know the Russians and Chinese are working together.
So is it any surprise that when the Russians started dumping…
The Chinese started dumping also?
Does the Intelligence Community have the ability to defend our country in the event that this escalates even further?
Believe it or not, there’s an intelligence unit inside the Treasury.
And they actually have a war room.
That tells you that financial warfare is here and it’s real.
So if the Russians are dumping…
The Chinese are dumping…
Who is going to buy all this debt?
Well, a mystery buyer has shown up.
Recently, Belgium has bought enormous amounts…
In the hundreds of billions of dollars of U.S. government securities.
So Belgium started loading up on treasuries, coincidentally at the exact same time Russia and China began dumping theirs?
It’s not the Belgians.
These amounts are bigger than the Belgian current account surplus.
These are not Belgian dentists who are buying these things.
Belgium is a Front
You know, could it be the Fed itself?
That’s the point.
Maybe the public doesn’t know who the mystery buyer is, but the national security community does.
Now, the Treasury, operating through this war room, and the Fed – the mystery buyer in Belgium…
For now, they have managed to prop up the treasury market.
It hasn’t collapsed yet.
But they’re not going to be able to keep pulling these rabbits out of a hat, there’s a limit.
This should be very scary, because if the Fed is tapped out – we talked earlier about how the Fed is leveraged 77 to 1.
So the Fed is at the limit of what they can do.
The foreigners are now dumping treasuries and if no one buys it, guess what, interest rates go up.
That’ll sink the stock market, that’ll sink the housing market.
Higher interest rates mean the debt gets higher, so interest rates go up some more.
So you start a death spiral and there’s no way out of it.
An attack on our treasury market is obviously a very serious flashpoint that could ignite this Great Depression you predict in your book.
Let’s talk about another flashpoint.
What I call flashpoint number two has to do with the petrodollar.
Can you explain what you mean by the petrodollar?
It’s basically a system whereby oil exports are priced in dollars.
Oil doesn’t have to be priced in dollars.
It could be priced in euros, Japanese yen, Swiss francs, gold.
It could be priced in a lot of things.
But, in fact, the whole global oil market is priced in dollars.
I was actually very close to the birth of the petrodollar system.
My first visit to the White House on official business was in 1974, with a small group, about five of us.
We met with Helmut Sonnenfeldt, who was the Deputy National Security Advisor at the time.
He was the number two to Henry Kissinger.
And, this was at a time you have to remember…
At the beginning of the ’70s oil was $2 a barrel.
At the end of the ’70s, oil was $12 a barrel.
This Was an Oil Shock
The price of oil was skyrocketing.
Inflation was getting out of control.
There were gas lines.
You know, a certain generation of Americans remembers this very well.
We were in the White House talking about what to do about this.
One of the scenarios we discussed was the U.S. military would invade Saudi Arabia.
We would secure the oil fields and create a military perimeter around them.
We would pump the oil and set it at a price that was favorable to us.
Now, we would give the money to the Saudis.
We didn’t want to steal their money.
We didn’t want to steal their oil.
We just wanted to set the price.
Now, fortunately, that plan was not carried out.
But it shows you how desperate things were at the time.
But what did happen?
Why did we not invade Saudi Arabia?
Well, the answer is Kissinger and the Saudis worked out a deal.
And the Saudis said, “Okay, we’ll price oil in dollars, so that secures the role of the dollar as the global reserve currency.”
But there was a quid pro quo.
We agreed to guarantee the continuation of the House of Saud, the royal family of Saudi Arabia.
And by extension, the national security of Saudi Arabia.
Because they’re a relatively weak military power.
And it’s a bad neighborhood – a lot of enemies in the region starting with Iran and others.
So the question would be, obviously, did this petrodollar deal work?
And it ABSOLUTELY did work.
Once it kicked in, the dollar roared.
This was the period – sometimes people call it the king dollar period, the strong dollar period.
This was after Volcker and Reagan in the 1980s.
But this only continued up to a certain period of time…
Up until around 2000.
And since then, the dollar has been in a decline.
So what could cause the fall of the petrodollar?
Well, we’re seeing it in real time.
Think of the petrodollar, or the dollar as the global reserve currency…
Think of it as a three-legged stool.
So, here’s the stool and it’s got three legs.
As long as the legs are standing, the foundation is firm and the dollar will remain as a global reserve currency.
But, one by one, those legs are being pulled out.
What are the legs?
Well, the first one is Saudi Arabia.
That was where the petrodollar deal began.
Our side of the deal was we would guarantee the national security of Saudi Arabia.
But lately – going back to December of 2013…
President Obama stabbed the Saudis in the back by anointing Iran as the regional-hegemonic power.
You know, the President has been withdrawing American power from around the world and his view is, well, we’ll leave a friendly cop on the beat.
Every sort of bad neighborhood around the world will have a cop on the beat.
The President has decided that Iran is going to be the cop on the beat in the Middle East.
They’re going to be the heavyweight regional power.
Where does that leave Saudi Arabia? Out in the cold.
So now Saudi Arabia is saying…
“Wait a second, you’ve undermined our national security, you’ve reneged on your side of the petrodollar deal, why should we hold up our end?
Maybe we’ll start pricing oil in gold or euros or maybe Chinese yuan.”
Because now, increasingly, Saudi Arabia is selling more and more oil to China.
So, the first leg of the stool has been pulled out.
The Saudis are going to back away from the petrodollar, because we are no longer guaranteeing their security – we’re playing footsie with Iran.
The second leg of the stool is Russia.
Now, Russia is not a member of OPEC, but they are the world’s largest oil exporter, one of the world’s largest energy exporters, actually bigger than Saudi Arabia.
So even though they’re not a member of OPEC, they also price oil in dollars.
So, they’ve signed onto the petrodollar deal in their own way.
But, we’re now engaged in financial warfare, Russia is ready to fight back.
And this is not classified information.
This is being said publicly.
Andrei Kostin, President and Chairman of Russia’s VTB Bank, it’s one of the largest banks in Russia, he recently said…
“It’s time to change the entire international financial system that considers the dollar the key reserve currency. The world has changed.”
A member of the Russian Parliament, he said…
“The dollar is evil.
We will sell rubles to consumers that rely on gas and later we’ll exchange the rubles for gold.
If they don’t like this, let them not do it.
Let them freeze to death.”
So, two of the legs of the stool, Saudi Arabia and Russia, have already been pulled out.
The third leg is China.
And that is coming out too.
As far as Russia and China’s role in taking down the petrodollar…
This recent $400 billion energy alliance they signed, is that the purpose of it?
Russia is the world’s largest energy exporter, China is the fastest growing economy in the world, they need energy.
So this is a natural partnership between the two. But the dollar is out in the cold.
And, China is actually putting these yuan bilateral trade agreements in place all over the world.
They’re doing them one-by-one.
But once there’s enough trade and enough volume in a certain currency, it can become a reserve currency.
These are all straws in the wind, leading to the collapse of the dollar as the global reserve currency.
Jim, in your book, you investigate how nations are now using gold as a financial weapon.
Is this one of the most dangerous flashpoints?
It’s absolutely one of the most dangerous flashpoints and, here’s why…
A lot of people look at the dollar and say, “Look, you may not like the dollar, you may worry about the dollar, but you’ve got nowhere else to go.”
But there is another place to go, which is gold.
You don’t have to buy treasuries, you can buy gold.
And countries are actually doing that.
So this is basically a global rebalancing of gold reserves.
This is one of the things that the Intelligence Community is watching most closely.
And China is our number one case.
Here’s why: China has acquired more than 3,000 tons in the past four years.
Now they lie about this.
They officially say they have 1,054 tons.
The reason is, China is using their own military and their own intelligence assets to acquire some of this gold in stealth.
I recently ran into a senior officer of one of the major secure logistics firms in the world.
Secure logistics that means these are people who operate vaults and armored cars.
So they handle the physical metal.
They’re not central banks.
They’re not government agencies.
These are Brinks and G4S and ViaMat.
These are the big players in this field.
One of these officials said he recently brought gold into China at the head of an armored column of the People’s Liberation Army.
In other words, he was in an armored car and they had Armored personnel vehicles bringing gold into China.
I guarantee that did not show up in the official Hong Kong import figures.
Now, why is China doing this?
A lot of people speculate that they want to launch their own gold-backed reserve currency, to take the Chinese yuan, back it with gold, make it a global reserve currency.
That’s extremely unlikely.
That’s not what China is doing.
What they are trying to do is hedge against the collapse of the dollar.
China can’t prevent that from happening.
What they can do is build up the gold reserves.
This is known to the Intelligence Community.
This is NOT publicly revealed.
What if it were publicly revealed?
Here’s what global gold reserves would look like if the amount that China owns were actually suddenly revealed.
This is a dagger aimed at the heart of the dollar.

Jim, so far all of these flashpoints have involved China.
Isn’t this an economic suicide mission to attack America?
There’s something else here, another flashpoint that could meltdown the global financial system.
What if the U.S. doesn’t bring the entire pyramid crashing down, what if it’s China?
Well, it could very well be.
They have a highly leveraged banking system.
But the banking system is just the beginning.
There’s also something called a shadow banking system.
This is now a $7.5 trillion industry and it’s up 4,067% since 2005.
This term shadow banking, it’s starting to get play in the press.
How would you explain it?
If you put your money in the bank in China, they – it’s just like the United States.
They pay you nothing, zero maybe, one quarter of one percent, something pathetically small.
But, they’re offering these wealth management products that pay five, six, seven percent.
Well, what are they?
Well, they’re actually – they take the money and they buy mortgages on worthless assets, inflated assets and bubble assets that are going to crash.
Before the crash in the United States, before 2008, new construction, as a percentage of GDP growth, that was about 16%.
16% is a pretty big slice.
But, look at China.
In each of the last three years, construction has been 50% of GDP growth.
They’re building white elephants, they’re building trophy projects, they’re building ghost cities.
I’ve been to China – I was with the Communist Party officials and provincial officials, they were trying to get me to bring some businesses there.
I went to one place near Nanjing.
They weren’t building seven buildings, they were building seven cities.
Every city had a whole cluster of skyscrapers, luxury hotels, athletic facilities, housing facilities, high-end shopping, metro stops, highway access…
And an airport to service all seven of these cities.
This construction was going on as far as the eye can see.
It was all empty.
All of it.
Now, here’s the point.
In the U.S. before the crash, it took about 4.3 years of income to buy the typical house .
In China, it takes 18 years of income.
If they’re building apartments, co-ops and condos, and people can’t afford them, you know their prices are going to collapse.
One of the senior banking officials in China said, “This is a Ponzi scheme.”
Those are his words, not my words.
I happen to agree.
But, we all know what happens to Ponzi schemes, eventually you run out of suckers and they collapse.
Once you have enough collapses, there’s going to be a run on the banks.
The bankers are going to say sorry, we can’t pay you, it’s not our problem.
Well, that’s not going to be good enough.
Riots are going to break out.
What does it mean when the world’s second largest economy hits the brakes?
That’s going to be disastrous to global growth; it’s going to pull the rug out from under the sky-high valuations we’re seeing in the U.S. stock market.
This is a set-up for an entire collapse of the global economy.
Jim, there’s one more flashpoint I’d like to talk about.
It has to do with a premeditated plan you believe exists inside the IMF, and it involves high-ranking U.S. officials…
To replace the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.
It’s not just my belief.
This is actually documented.
It’s a ten-year plan to replace the dollar as the global reserve currency.
The IMF released a report this year, it was called – and get this title – “The Dollar Reigns Supreme By Default.”
And here’s a direct quote…
“The aggressive use of unconventional monetary policies by the Federal Reserve, the U.S. central bank, has increased the supply of dollars and created rifts in the financial system. The dollar status should be in peril.”
Reserves are nothing more than a savings account for a country.
That’s the amount of money they’ve saved.
But, the problem is, when you have it you have to decide what to do with it.
You can’t just stick it under a mattress, so to speak.
A lot of people think that the dollar will prevail because there are no good alternatives.
That’s not true.
The dollar is declining sharply, as a percentage of total global currency reserves.
Imagine if that continued.
The euro comes up.
Swiss franc comes up.
Some of the other currencies come up.
That’s one outcome.
But, there’s another outcome, that’s probably coming a lot sooner.
We have a financial panic in the world.
If a central bank has to re-liquefy the world, where is that money going to come from?
It can’t come from the Fed, they’re leveraged 77-to-1.
There’s only one clean balance sheet left in the world… the IMF’s.
The IMF, believe it or not, is only leveraged 3-to-1.
When the next crisis comes, it’s going to be bigger than the Fed.
The only source of liquidity in the world is going to be the IMF.
Think of it this way.
The Federal Reserve has a printing press, they can print dollars.
The European central bank has a printing press, they can print euros.
The IMF, the International Monetary Fund, has a printing press too.
They can print something called the Special Drawing Right, or the SDR for short.
These SDRs can come along as a new reserve currency.
The reason they came up with the name Special Drawing Right is because if they called it “world money” that would sound a little spooky and scary.
But that’s exactly what it is.
Here’s the point.
This may be a ten-year plan.
We’re not going to make it ten years.
This collapse will happen a lot sooner than that.
So they’re going to have to dust off this playbook and run out these SDRs and print trillions of them to prop up the system.
Now, if the Fed bailed out private credit in 2008…
And the IMF now bails out the Fed in the next financial panic…
Who runs the IMF? Who’s really in charge?
Well, it’s a nice crowd.
We’ve got kings, dictators, communists…
They’re unelected, unaccountable.
And this is the next flashpoint, really, the IMF taking over the world monetary system and becoming the central bank of the world…
Printing “world money” called the SDR.
Jim, these flashpoints…
The attacks on our treasury market and petrodollar…
China’s stealth gold run…
China’s inevitable collapse…
Even this alarming inside job to take down our dollar that’s escalating at the IMF…
You’ve only scratched the surface of what you reveal in your book.
However, the most important message I took away from The Death Of Money is:
Regardless of which flashpoint unleashes the 25-year Great Depression, folks need to understand it’s coming, and coming quick.
Steve, that’s exactly right.
There is a mission in this book and it’s urgent and it’s important.
We’re talking about:
A prolonged depression…
Rampant bank collapses
A 70% best case scenario stock market drop
This could all start within the next six months.
Look at it this way.
Americans right now are standing at the very bottom of a tall mountain… Mt. Everest, Mt. Kilimanjaro.
About halfway up the mountain, there’s a catastrophic avalanche barreling down towards us.
Determining the one snowflake…
The one flashpoint that’s going to speed this chaos up shouldn’t be our focus.
Recognizing the severity of the situation and moving to safety should be.
So, mission one is helping people hold on to what they’ve got.
That’s going to be more than half the battle ahead.
Jim, as you know, Money Morning believes so much in your book…
As well as your mission to warn the public…
That we’d like to send free copies of The Death of Money: The Coming Collapse of the International Monetary System, to everyone who is watching this interview.
Now, it’s on bookshelves, it’s being sold for about $28.
But, I want to point this out.
The version we’re sending folks is different than the one being sold in stores.
And the reason why is simple.
What we’re talking about today is not light reading material.
The book investigates everything thoroughly, except for one part.
It’s what our government calls – and to be clear, this is what they call it – “the Day After Plan”.
This describes what America and our government will be like when our economy collapses.
Now, I have an unpublished chapter that does outline this situation, it’s called The Day After Plan Declassified.
I didn’t put it in the book that was originally released, because it is controversial.
The picture I paint is far from pretty.
But I am going to include this chapter here…
Because folks watching this interview are more prepared to see this intelligence and these scenarios.
You also took another step with this version of the book…
You created a six-part video series you’re calling, The Death of Money Digital Debriefing.
Here’s why I put that together.
It’s impossible for anyone, me or anyone else in my line of work, to give you an exact day and time this collapse will begin.
We just know it’s coming and coming soon.
However, there are crystal clear warning signs that will appear in our economy and in our markets.
This is certain.
So, across this video series I walk folks through the seven major signs.
I give you the exact signals to watch for.
I share the charts.
The announcements you’ll hear from certain world governments and the Federal Reserve.
I examine, even further, the flashpoints that could ignite this nuclear meltdown in our economy.
I explore the secret bubbles nobody is talking about.
I share more findings from the Intelligence Community about Russian, Chinese, and Iranian activities against America.
This is very important…
Across this video series I help folks analyze their investment portfolios.
I show them how to adjust their allocations accordingly for numerous scenarios that could unfold, because this is a fluid situation – it’s volatile.
So, I review how much of your portfolio should be in certain sectors of the stock market, precious metals, income opportunities…
Where folks should be looking overseas to invest. It’s a point-by-point examination of each of these areas.
Jim, we’d like to rush copies of your book, the unpublished chapter, and this six -art digital debriefing out to everyone watching.
It’s part of a bold initiative you’re taking on, what you’re calling:
You helped lead a CIA mission called “Project Prophecy.”
The goal was to identify the signals in the financial markets and economy that threatened our country.
With this re-launch of Project Prophecy here, you’re applying this same methodology to helping everyday folks build this unbreakable wall around their wealth.
Let’s talk about what you’ve created.
Editor’s Note: Jim Rickards has prepared a comprehensive package that will give you the real story and real solutions for these troubling times ahead.
Click here to claim your free copy of The Project Prophecy 2.0 Action Plan.
Steve, I realize much of what I’ve revealed today is a shock to the system.
America is facing one of its darkest periods.
There’s no escaping that.
And some of the measures folks are going to need to take to protect themselves may be outside of their comfort zones.
So, I’m going to take a hands-on approach here.
My book, the unpublished chapter, and digital debriefing will give them the big picture.
But, folks also need to know the exact investments to target and the ones to avoid.
They need to rethink how they handle their personal finances.
To help them I’ve prepared a set of intelligence briefings.
The first is called, The Project Prophecy Wealth Defense Blueprint: The Four Directives.
And, with each directive, I have specific investments targeted.
Let’s examine each of them.
Seek Shelter From the Dollar’s Fall
The next time the dollar falls – it won’t be the first time.
The dollar almost collapsed completely in the late 1970s.
Between 1977 and 1981, a five-year period, cumulative inflation was 50%.
If you had insurance, annuities, any kind of fixed income, retirement income, savings in the bank, you lost half your wealth in a very short period of time.
What we’re talking about now could be a 70 or 80% collapse, maybe even more.
The best way to handle the dollar’s fall – and this is what I focus on in the briefing – is to invest in the euro.
What people have to understand is the euro is not an economic project.
It’s a political project.
And if the political will is there, directed from Germany, the euro is going to hang together.
We have a chart actually showing the euro’s rise against the dollar.
So just imagine all the talk about the collapse of the euro and yet the euro is actually getting stronger.
And, by the way, everyone knows that the United States has 8,000 tons of gold.
Well, Europe has 10,000 tons of gold.
Europe is the largest gold holder in the world.
So, they actually have the gold to back up the euro.
Now, you don’t have to open a foreign bank account to invest in the euro.
In this Project Prophecy Wealth Defense Blueprint, I’m recommending a specific fund that rises twofold as the dollar falls against the euro.
This is a very strong defense play because you are getting twice the return from both the dollar’s fall and the euro’s rise.
So walk us through this second directive in this briefing.
Always Have an Insurance Plan For a Market Collapse
The stock market is going to fall 70%.
Now, does that mean you shouldn’t hold stocks?
Folks should make that decision for themselves.
But, there are ways to use the market itself as a safety net.
I’m recommending we target the sector that will experience the most severe consequences of this collapse, the financial sector.
The companies that are holding all these stock derivatives.
These are going to fall harder and faster than anything else.
So, I examine a specific fund in this briefing that is heavily weighted against the financial sector.
It rises 3% for every 1% the financial sector pulls back.
So, a 25% pull back, that’s a 75% return from this fund.
If it falls 70%, now you’re looking at a 210% return.
What this fund allows you to do is use a small amount of capital to multiply your protection against a market crash.
It’s excellent insurance.
So, take us through the third directive.
Invest in What People Can’t Live Without
When America experiences this worst case scenario we are predicting in the Intelligence Community, people won’t stop needing food.
They won’t stop using energy.
They won’t stop using essential goods and services.
This is where folks should be looking now.
So in the briefing I’m recommending water investments, because you can’t live without water.
And we’re already seeing water investments begin to take off.
This sector has been surging since 2009. It’s up about 200%.
I’m targeting a water processing company that operates 47,000 miles of water pipelines across 16 states and 1500 communities.
Now, this is a sleeping giant income play.
This water processor’s dividend has grown every year.
It’s up 55% already.
And, income is something we can’t live without either.
And, besides water, the briefing also focuses on a company that provides emergency medical supplies, because that’s also a necessity.
Jim, you have one more directive in this briefing.
Yes, Warren Buffet’s secret weapon.
Target Companies Who Control Hard Assets
You know Warren Buffet has this reputation as the avuncular oracle of Omaha, the stock market investor’s best friend.
But, I say when it comes to billionaires, don’t listen to what they say, watch what they do.
Warren Buffet’s recent acquisitions have been very revealing.
A few years ago he bought the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad.
He bought the whole railroad.
He actually took it private.
But what is a railroad?
A railroad is nothing but hard assets.
They have right-of-ways, mining rights adjacent to the right-of-ways, rail rolling stock, yards, switches, signals; it’s all hard assets.
How does a railroad make money?
It moves hard assets in the form of freight, coal, wheat, corn, steel, cattle, etc.
So a railroad is the ultimate hard asset play. It’s hard assets making money moving hard assets.
What was Warren Buffet’s next big acquisition? He bought oil and natural gas resources, another hard asset.
And by the way, he can move his oil on his own railroad.
He doesn’t need the Keystone Pipeline.
When you line up 100 tanker cars on a railroad, that’s a pipeline on wheels.
So Warren Buffet is a guy who’s dumping paper money, getting hard assets in the form of railroads, oil, natural gas.
If it’s good enough for Warren Buffet, it’s good enough for everyday Americans.
This is the most important of the directives, so I have the top six companies who have built these hard asset escape plans into their business models.
The second intelligence briefing you’ve created is called: The Project Prophecy Watch List: 30 Stocks That Will Soon Collapse.
Take us through this.
Steve, during the original Project Prophecy for the CIA we built a tracking system, a watch list of the 400 stocks most likely to signal a coming attack on America.
But, in the years that followed, we kept modifying its capabilities so it could identify the companies that were in danger of collapsing.
This intelligence briefing reveals the 30 stocks that are now at the top of that list.
Now, when folks see these stocks, it may shock them.
These aren’t micro caps or small caps, because they don’t have the capability to do widespread damage.
These are 30 of the most widely held stocks in the retirement accounts and 401ks of everyday Americans.
Most are large blue chip.
That means everybody watching today is probably holding one, two, or more of them.
And they are vulnerable to complete annihilation.
Now, inside this list of 30 I’ve singled out the 10 that are currently at a red alert status.
This means if you were holding them today you need to not be holding them tomorrow, because the clock is running out on them.
They’re already at risk of failure before the worst of what’s coming appears.
Now, let’s talk about the final intelligence you’ve created: The Project Prophecy Hard Assets and Personal Finance Playbook.
I’m advocating people – if they aren’t already and they have the means to do so – to start exploring adding hard assets to their overall portfolio.
This intelligence briefing covers them all, from land, including farmland, to certain antiquities and art that holds value, as well as physical currencies and precious metals.
I’d like to focus on one precious metal in particular, gold.
Now, in the book, you reveal how China has successfully manipulated gold’s price to keep it low, while they stockpile it in their reserves.
But you’re bullish on it moving forward.
However, you do write that people may be taking a dangerous approach to gold investing.
It has become fashionable in recent years to invest in gold ETFs.
The GLD ticker is the headliner.
The logic on the surface makes sense, you can secure gold without having to acquire it physically and store it.
You can even, theoretically – at least, they tell you – you can cash in your ETF shares for physical gold if you so choose in the future.
This is the problem – that’s not true.
The everyday American does not have that ability.
Here’s how to think about the gold market.
Imagine it’s a pyramid, but it’s inverted.
The point is down at the bottom and wide base is at the top.
There’s a little tiny bit of physical gold at the bottom.
On top you have all these forms of paper gold.
What are they?
Unallocated gold forwards
These are all what I call paper gold. They give you contractual rights but there’s no assurance you’ll ever get your hands on physical gold.
Now, what’s happening is this whole pyramid is getting larger and larger, but the amount of physical gold, the floating supply, is disappearing.
When gold moves from the GLD warehouse to the Chinese warehouses in Shanghai, which it is…
It’s been moving from west to east in very large quantities…
Once it goes to Shanghai it’s no longer a part of the floating supply. That gold is never going to see the light of day, at least not for several hundred years.
So, the total supply may be unchanged, but the floating supply is dropping.
That means this little brick at the bottom of the pyramid is getting smaller and smaller.
One of two things has to happen: either that paper pyramid has to shrink, or the whole thing is going to become wobbly and tip over.
So, if you have GLD, you only have shares and you will only ever have shares.
You cannot get your hands on the gold.
So, with this intelligence briefing, I tell folks to stay away from gold ETFs.
Instead, I talk about three specific precious metal coins they’ll want to look into immediately.
Now, let’s examine how folks can fortify their personal finances from these dangerous times that are fast approaching.
This is very important, because if you protect yourself with your investments, yet don’t take the same measures with your personal finances, you’ll experience the same outcome and it won’t be a good one.
The bank you choose to keep your money in is now a critical decision, because that bank may not be around next year or the year after, as everything escalates.
So, I talk about the safest banks and credit unions, these will not collapse.
You should make sure your money is in one of them.
I show folks which CDs and conservative income opportunities are most shielded from risk.
I talk about the ten safest cities for the future.
These are the ones with the strongest local economies.
They have industries that will continue providing jobs, their crime rates are low now, and they have the best chance of staying that way, even in the darkest times.
Retirees should be looking near these areas.
Plus, I also examine which careers will be the safest, because real unemployment and underemployment is already an epidemic, but it’s going to get much worse.

Note: We are republishing this essay by S. Brian Willson describing the true history of genocide in the United States which stands in stark contrast to the myth of Thanksgiving because of its popularity with readers and its educational value.
The Defining and Enabling Experience of Our “Civilization”
As we again plan to celebrate what US “Americans”call Thanksgiving, let us pause for a moment of reflection. Let us recognize that accounts of the first Thanksgiving are mythological, and that the holiday is actually a grotesque celebration of our arrogant ethnocentrism built on genocide.
Native Americans in the Caribbean greeted their 1492 European invaders with warm hospitality. They were so innocent that Genoan Cristoforo Colombo wrote in his log, They willingly traded everything they owned . . . They do not bear arms . . . They would make fine servants . . . They could easily be made Christians . . . With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want. This meeting set in motion a 500+-year plunder of the Western Hemisphere, which then spread to the remainder of the globe. And it has not stopped!
Historian Hans Köning concludes that what sets the West apart is its persistence, its capacity tostop at nothing. Cultural historian Lewis Mumford declared, Wherever Western man went, slavery, land robbery, lawlessness, culture-wrecking, and the outright extermination of both wild beasts and tame men went with him.
Jump 129 years to 1621, year of the supposed “first Thanksgiving.” There is not much documentation of that event, apparently a three-day feast, but surviving Indians do not trust the myth. Natives were already dying like flies thanks to European-borne diseases. The Pequot tribe in today’s Connecticut reportedly numbered 8,000 when the Pilgrims arrived, but disease had reduced their population to 1,500 by 1637, when the first, officially proclaimed, all-Pilgrim “Thanksgiving” took place. At that feast, the whites of New England celebrated their massacre of the Pequots in the Connecticut Valley where the Mystic River meets the sea. The Indians were in fact celebrating their annual green corn dance ceremony. But it was to be their last.

William Bradford, the former Governor of Plymouth and one of the chroniclers of the supposed 1621 feast, was on hand for the unspeakable massacre of 1637. He described it thus in his History of the Plymouth Plantation(@1647): Those that escaped the fire were slain with the sword; some hewed to pieces, others run through with their rapiers, so that they were quickly dispatched and very few escaped. It was a fearful sight to see them thus frying in the fire…horrible was the stink and scent thereof, but the victory seemed a sweet sacrifice, and they gave praise thereof to God, who had wrought so wonderfully for them, thus to enclose their enemies in their hands, and give them so speedy a victory.
The rest of the white folks thought so, too. This day forth shall be a day of celebration and thanksgiving for subduing the Pequots, read Massachusetts Bay Governor John Winthrop’s proclamation. The authentic proclaimed Thanksgiving Day was born. Few Pequots survived.
The English commander John Mason declared that the attack against the Pequot was the act of a God who “laughed his Enemies and the Enemies of his People to scorn making [the Pequot] as a fiery Oven . . . Thus did the Lord judge among the Heathen, filling [Mystic] with dead Bodies.” The Narragansett and Mohegan warriors with the English were horrified by the actions and “manner of the Englishmen’s fight . . . because it is too furious, and slays too many men.” The Narragansett returned home and no longer participated in the war. This image is courtesy of forquignon.com.
Most historians believe about 700 Pequots were slaughtered at Mystic. Many prisoners were executed, and surviving women and children sold into slavery in the West Indies. Pequot prisoners that escaped execution were parceled out to Indian tribes allied with the English. The Pequot were thought to have been extinguished as a people.
But, the epitaph was premature. Enough survived such that today the Pequots own the Foxwood Casino and Hotel, in Ledyard, Connecticut, larger in size than the Pentagon, with gaming revenues in the billions.
Moving 158 years further, we discover a ruthless campaign conducted in central New York in 1779 during our “noble” Revolutionary War. The Continental Congress was furious that a majority of the Iroquois Indians (those who coined the Seventh Generation philosophy) were siding with the British against the colonialists who were rapidly settling their lands. The booming capital town of the Seneca Nation was Kanadesaga at the head of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes region. In the summer of 1779, the Continental Congress instructed its Army’s commanding general to take care of the Indian problem. George Washington complied. He ordered General John Sullivan to lay waste . . . that the country . . . be . . . destroyed, instilling terror among the Iroquois Indians in central New York; General Sullivan affirmed that the Indians shall see that there is malice enough in our hearts to destroy everything that contributes to their support. Washington declared, Our future security will be in their inability to injure us…and in the terror with which the severity of the chastizement they receive will inspire them [Richard Drinnon, Facing West: The Metaphysics of Indian Hating & Empire Building (New York: Schocken Books, 1990), pp. 331-32].
General John Sullivan was selected by George Washington to deal with the tribes who had sided with the British during the Revolutionary War. This included; the Mohawks, Cayuga, Onondagas and Seneca tribes. It was named the Sullivan Campaign and General Sullivan took no mercy destroying at least 40 villages, including burning their crops and homes. This destruction lead to over 5,000 Iroquois displaced and many starved or froze to death during the winter months.
The culminating day of “victory” was September 7, 1779. Total destruction of Kanadesaga and the forty other Seneca towns was accomplished by 4,500 troops, nearly one-third of the entire force of the Continental Army. The only major military campaign of that year, it was one of the most vicious scorched-earth campaigns in history. All orchards and food crops were destroyed, all buildings were looted, then burned. Many of the escaping Senecas were scalped and butchered: After the battle . . . Indian warriors . . . were scalped; Lieutenant William Barton amused himself by skinning two Indians from the hips down to make two pairs of leggings, one pair for himself, the other a present for his major [Morris Bishop, "The End of the Iroquois," American Heritage, October 1969, p. 78].
Jump 162 years to 1941, when I was born in Kanadesaga, renamed Geneva by our European ancestors. As a young boy I blissfully collected hundreds of Seneca arrowheads, storing them in a special protected box in my bedroom. A chapter in my seventh grade history textbook taught that, The Iroquois were the Indian Masters of the State, but due to their destructive attacks on the frontier settlements, George Washington decided to send an army to crush the Indians . . . The Six Nations never recovered from this blow. Europeans onward and upward!
The New Republic was formed in 1789, its 1787 Constitutional Convention having been conducted in enforced secrecy, never submitted to a popular vote. The third U.S. President, Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809) described his vision of an “empire of liberty,” with expanded commercial enterprises and territory. And without any Constitutional authority he quickly doubled the area of the young country by acquiring vast Louisiana from France’s Napoleon for $15 million.
In 1807 he advocated preventive war: If the English do not give us the satisfaction we demand, we will take Canada, which wants to enter the Union; and when, together with Canada, we shall have the Floridas, we shall no longer have any difficulties with our neighbors; and it is the only way of preventing them [William Appleman Williams, The Contours of American History (Cleveland: The World Publishing Company, 1961), p. 192]. Others openly talked of expansion into Spanish America and Canada for planter and merchant prosperity in new markets, saying that the patriotic and virtuous “wise framers” of the Constitution had “too much wisdom to restrict Congress to defensive war” [Ibid., p. 194].
Twenty-one missions were built from San Diego to Sonoma on the most fertile land by slaves of the Catholic missionaries. Friars and soldiers captured Chumashes and put them on the missions. Once they were baptized, they were tied to the mission and the authority of friars who only gave them food and clothes. Many were malnourished and there were more deaths than births.
After moving to Humboldt County in northern California in the early 2000s, I carefully examined its history as well. The 1849 gold rush brought a large influx of white miners and settlers to California, leading to near virtual wipeout of California Indians by 1865-70. Between 1853 and 1861 there were at least fourteen wars waged against the Indians of California, with paramilitary campaigns continuing into the late 1860s. The population, once thought to have been as high as 700,000, was estimated to be 100,000 in 1849 partly due to grueling enslavement in the Catholic Missions starting in 1769. From 1849 to 1860 the population decreased by 65 percent to 35,000, due to systematic killings [Russell Thorton, American Indian Holocaust and Survival: A Population History Since 1492 (Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1987), p. 109]; a detailed list of atrocities committed against Indians in California, including many in what is now Humboldt County, can be found in Sherburne F. Cook’s The Conflict Between the California Indian and White Civilization (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1976)].
Left: Wiyot Indian Family
From 1857 to 1860, U.S. author/poet Bret Harte wrote for the Northern Californian and theHumboldt Times. Bret was privy to the white massacre of 188 Wiyot Indians on Indian Island in Humboldt Bay near Eureka on February 25, 1860, in which it was reported only one Wiyot child survived. Harte’s story, entitled “Indiscriminate Massacre of Indians, Women and Children Butchered,” included this account: “Little children and old women were mercilessly stabbed and their skulls crushed by axes. When the bodies were landed in Union [present day Arcata] a more shocking and revolting spectacle never was exhibited to the eyes of a Christian and civilized people. Old women, wrinkled and decrepit, lay weltering in blood, their brains dashed out and dabbed with long grey hair. Infants sparce a span long, with their faces cloven with hatchets and their bodies ghastly wounds. . . .” [Northern Californian, Vol. 2, Issue 9 (February 29, 1960), p. 1]. Barte fled as whites sought to lynch him.
In California as elsewhere, hordes of white frontier settlers, speculators, surveyors and other opportunists were establishing permanent settlements as they moved westward from the Atlantic Coast colonies, especially following cessation of the Seven Years War in 1763. Thousands of murders of Indigenous were proudly admitted by settlers and investors/speculators engaged in activities the equivalent of today’s paramilitary death squads operating outside “official” channels, i.e., acting parallel to or outside the jurisdiction of federal troops.
As US Empire spread beyond Manifest Destiny of the continent, the US war in the Philippines was an early victim. General Jacob H. Smith’s infamous order in 1901 “Kill Everyone Over Ten” was the caption in the New York Journal cartoon on May 5, 1902. The Old Glory draped an American shield on which a vulture replaced the bald eagle. The caption at the bottom proclaimed, “Criminals Because They Were Born Ten Years Before We Took the Philippines” Gen. Smith ordered “I want no prisoners. I wish you to kill and burn; the more you kill and burn, the better it will please me… The interior of Samar must be made a howling wilderness…” Estimates of deaths in this massacre range from 2,000 to 50,000.
Preventive war using terror against civilians as ordered by thegovernment carried out by young male troops orparamilitary forces are “all-American” values. Such policies have been witnessed time and again in U.S. history, rationalized by our sense of being “exceptional” people. We remain in denial about our arrogant, racist and genocidal origins. More redeeming values have been exhibited, such as civil disobedience and waves of progressive political movements. But the prevailing political and economic structures remain intransigently oligarchic. In simple terms, we remain a white male supremacy society of plutocrats supported by massive numbers of obedient consumers and laborers.
By revealing our social secrets (an oligarchy committed to selfish exploitation) and realizing that those secrets have masked our social myth (a democracy committed to equal justice), we can help catalyze a revolution of consciousness. Recognizing that obedience to our system is killing us and the Planet’s capacity to host us, is a grand initial step for triggering the imaginative forces necessary to enable rapid movement toward a society based on mutual aid in which sustainable communities are built and nourished at the local level.
We have yet to come to grips with the original holocaust that continues to serve as the defining and enabling experience of our “civilization.” Embracing this “shadow” can ironically enable sudden and radical shifts as we are freed from expending the incredible unconscious energy needed to conceal our shame. Sharing our grief for what we have done to others, and ultimately to ourselves, will be experienced as tremendous relief.
After serving in the Vietnam War, S. Brian Willson became a radical, nonviolent peace activist and pacifist.

In my article of November 22 on Canada, USA and Ukraine, being the only three countries in the world to vote against an anti-Nazi resolution proposed by Russia in the UN General Assembly, I wrote dismayed as follows:
“I am living in Canada now for more than 8 months and I am dismayed by the complacency and gullibility of the Canadian people with respect to the criminal government of the Orion clone Harper. I have so far refrained from publishing articles on this insignificant Western country with the second biggest territory, but now the “barrel is full” (Der Fass ist voll), to quote a German saying.”
In this my outrage I am not alone as the alternative media have shown in the following days. Below I am publishing the excellent latest discussion in CrossTalk with Peter Lavelle in RT, where this problem is tackled very intelligently and with a lot of factual knowledge of human history by the participants. Please, do not consider that the condemnation on the Western and Ukrainian Neo-Nazism is of pure academic character and that there is not an urgent need to discuss this issue again and again.
Only yesterday I received the following letter from an American woman that literally infuriated me.
The article you wrote on Nov 22 has intrigued me. I find it very interesting that Russia, of all nations, proposed this resolution. Am sending you a link to a documentary on Adolf Hitler by Dennis Wise. There is much more to this story than we were ever allowed to know. Its long but the best research I have seen on this controversial subject. Scroll down, there are 25 parts each about 15 minutes if you care to watch it. The lies and deceit go much deeper than most minds can comprehend. I think you will appreciate it. I can understand why the Ukraine diplomat said what he did and why they wouldn’t sign the resolution. A note; I am not promoting Nazism or any type of “ism” just the truth.
Given the incredible political ignorance and impertinence that emanates from this email to me, after I have published so many articles on this topic, my response was very controlled and moderate:
I am not at all impressed by this documentary and I do not need this kind of pseudo-historic evidence collected by people who have never lived in Europe and have not experienced WW2 and Nazism first hand. Let me tell you that when I came to Germany in 1975 most of the generation of my father-in-law were in the war and many of them were still former Nazis. I have visited many Nazi sites and concentration camps and have heard so many personal stories to not believe this bullshit you have sent me. Nazism is real and the one in Ukraine terrible – they are killing, raping and bombing innocent people. I could sent you hundreds of links to prove this, but it is up to you to find them to properly educate yourself, e.g.:
If the Public only Knew – US Aid to Ukraine Monsters. Atrocities Committed by Ukraine National Guard Azov Battalion
By the way, my father also fought against Hitler as a soldier and he was during the war in Germany and Austria.
In addition, I have, as former program editor of Radio Free Europe, dealt with the Ukrainian Nazism (Fascism) a lot at a time (in the 70s and 80s) when this historic fact was barely known in the West and never discussed in the Communist East and know how serious this dark political heritage is for Europe and the rest of the World.
And now enjoy this excellent discussion, you will never watch in the censored Western MSM (watch also this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1SUQ1qtdb0 ), which confirms brilliantly my devastating verdict on Canada in its darkest moment in its short history last week:

As just reported in my previous article of today, Moscow has agreed to follow the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) decision not to cut its oil output in order to help crash the oil price and thus the US oil fracking industry. Since then the oil price dropped for the first time in four years under 70 $ a barrel. This action must have unleashed a “temper tantrum”in the dark Obama regime resulting in the launching of three US Submarine Launched Ballistic Missiles (SLBM) towards the far eastern Pacific regions. http://sputniknews.com/military/20141129/1015299388.html
“Temper tantrum is an emotional outbreak, usually associated with children or those in emotional distress, that is typically characterized by stubbornness, crying, screaming, defiance, angryranting, a resistance to attempts at pacification and, in some cases, hitting. Physical control may be lost, the person may be unable to remain still, and even if the “goal” of the person is met he or she may not be calmed.”
What we now observe is the long-expected breakdown, a total mental, emotional and physical decompensation of the dark Western cabal, caused by the relentless flooding of this uppermost mother planet with high frequency energies of Truth from the Source as manifested by my latest, new cc-wave with excruciating headache in the last 36 hours.
Guys, this is big and it happens now. We are preparing now the psychological ground for the final major heinous crime of the dark ruling cabal against humanity that will lead to their demise and trigger our ascension. This has been heralded by myself and all channeling sources on this website for months.
This night I met with Putin in the higher realms. We attended a conference together where he very meticulously explained to his Western colleagues the rules of the End Game and why they have already lost. He was very calm and understanding in this negotiation, as somebody who has all the trumps in his hand. I was holding all the time the light for him to accomplish his mission. After that my excruciating headache due to massive descent of Source energies peaked up one more time around 2.00 am in the night (Pacific time) and is still ongoing while I try to write this article.
According to the new Russian news outlet “Sputnik International“, the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces (ADF) detected the launching of two of these US SLBM’s on Thursday following the conclusion of OPEC’s meeting in Vienna (Austria), where the decision not to cut oil production was made on that same day and the oil price plummeted.
Likewise, a third US SLBM was launched earlier today, just hours after First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov affirmed Moscow’s support of OPEC’s decision.
Major General Anatoly Nestechuk, the Deputy Chief of the ADF, has reported to the Russian government and the press that the Obama regime gave only a few hours notice prior to the launching of these SLBM’s. He further noted the fact that they were successfully detected, which illustrates the high combat readiness level and professionalism of his forces as also discussed by myself in today’s article.
The true cause of the Obama regime’s “temper tantrum” in launching these three SLBM’s at a cost of over $130 million against the Far Eastern Pacific Region was that both US and EU oil companies lost over $100 billion of their value this past week because of OPEC and Russia’s decision not to cut global oil supplies:
“Fund managers described the last 24 hours of trading as “capitulation” – the point at which a sell-off becomes widespread and panic-driven – as investors reassessed whether the sector could keep gushing cash after OPEC’s decision not to cut oil production to fight a supply glut.”
As I have reported on several occasions this week the Obama regimes “childish anger” is entirely misdirected as the Americans have no one else to blame but themselves for the collapse of global oil prices due to the secret agreement they made with Saudi Arabia this past fall backfiring on them. In other words, uncle Sam shot in his own oily foot.
The background for the US-Saudi secret agreement from this past September is as follows: Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to Saudi Arabia to make a deal for the American air forces to unleash their bombing of Syria. This undeclared war was supposed to be financed to a large part by the Saudis as the USA is broke. However the Saudis insisted that they would only consent to the deal if the USA guarantees that the Syrian regime of Assad would be toppled too.
A major part of this US-Saudi secret agreement was for the Saudis to increase their output of oil to put political pressure on both Russia and Iran. The Saudis must have been at first stunned by this part of the US secret agreement, but became “quickly overjoyed” to comply with the US in increasing their oil output, They realized that this heinous agreement provides them with a solution to counter one of their largest competitors… the United States, The latter had put forward the ambitious plan to become the biggest oil producer with the help of shale fracking and thus to challenge the role of the Saudis as the current biggest oil producer.
As to how foolish the Obama regime was to use oil as a weapon against Russia via their secret agreement with Saudi Arabia can, perhaps, be best explained by the Zerohedge News Service who in their report on this American debacle wrote:
“Who could have seen this coming? With oil prices holding at 4-year lows, heavily pressuring around half of US shale production economics, the “secret” US deal with Saudi Arabia to crush Russia via oil over-supply in a slumping demand world appears to be backfiring rapidly for John Kerry and his strategy team.
Capable of withstanding considerably lower prices for longer, Saudi Arabia’s oil minister Ali al-Naimi proclaimed “no one should cut production and the market will stabilize itself,” adding rather ominously (for the US economy and HY default rates), “Why should Saudi Arabia cut? The U.S. is a big producer too now. Should they cut?”
This grim assessment of the Obama regime’s actions against their own oil industry was further confirmed by Leonid Fedun, vice president and board member at OAO Lukoil (LKOD) who warned this past week:
, “OPEC policy on crude production will ensure a crash in the U.S. shale industry”.
With global oil prices crashing below the production costs needed for their oil companies to profit from the biggest US Bakken shale oil reserves estimated to hold 24 billion barrels, the Americans are now faced with a veritable nightmare scenario. At the same time the Russians possess with the Western Siberia’s Bazhenov shale oil reserves holding 1,920 billion barrels the biggest oil resources worldwide. They know that they will be able to expand and capture global market share in the future and that is why they patiently and confidently encounter the temporary problems associated with a lower ruble and diminishing oil revenues this year.
At the same time the US is now about to lose hundreds-of-thousands of good paying jobs in their oil industry due to their secret agreement with Saudi Arabia that is backfiring on them, Russia, on the other hand, possesses billions of foreign exchange and gold reserves, which combined with its low national debt and cheap oil production costs is ready and confident to survive well even the most brutal blow from the crashing price of oil.
The same, however, cannot be said of the US, which in the past 8 weeks had to borrow the staggering sum of over $ 1 Trillion in order to keep their Ponzi scheme of an economy from outright collapsing, thus increasing the horrendous national debt over 5 trillion only this year. Have you heard anything recently about the budget debt ceiling which let to shutdown of the US government last year for several months?
But for how long can the Obama regime and Fed print toilet paper dollars out of thin air? Next month will be the Month of Truth for the USA after this month we flooded this uppermost mother planet and humanity with the energies of truth by opening the peoples’ truth centre (4th and 5th chakra). And then expect the collapse of the dollar and the Orion monetary system that will herald our ascension and the MPR for the rest.

by Georgi Stankov and Kari, the Sunshinegirl, November 29, 2014
You are simply on fire lately. I am so delighted with these postings and how you help us continue to “connect the dots”. I can see such a beautiful strategy happening now on the part of Putin and I loved the latest on “The Programmed Sudden Death of the Orion Monetary System“. I love all your comments and agree with you that it’s all coming to a perfect head now. I always knew these things would come to pass, (although I was never led to get into the exact details), but I’ve had a very good understanding of the corruption behind it all for a long time and now I finally see how all the pieces are fitting together and it just makes my heart jump for joy as I can FEEL our freedom is so close. I can also sense how this is all becoming already a bad dream that we once had… fading into the eternal mist as we remember that heaven has always been helping us and loving us through this intensely hellish experience…..
I can almost understand this, but if you have a moment, could you break it down for me further? I can see how we need Russia’s gas and oil and uranium… putting the West in a vulnerable predicament, but how is Putin exchanging the US dollars for physical gold an advantage if the gold is being de-valued in the West? Is Putin basically running the US dollar into extinction and creating a standard of gold for the new economy (in other words something of real value other than corrupted fiat money)? I am certainly no financial whiz, but I’d like to understand this most excellent strategy a bit better as I find it very exciting and entertaining to watch now.
it is much simpler – Russia and China are buying physical gold at the COMEX stock exchange as anybody can do this in the West. For this reason Russia uses the dollars it gets for its oil and gas from the West. These dollars are hugely overvalued, while gold is very cheap compared to the dollar – about 1200 $ an ounce. The real price of gold is estimated to be around 10,000 $. Hence they use dollars as long as it is still a stable currency to buy cheap gold from the West.
The article of Bill Holter is very important as it reveals that last week more physical gold was bought on the COMEX than this stock exchange possesses. He speculates that this gold was bought by the Russians and the Chinese through regular brokers who now work hand in hand to default the USA as both countries know that the USA is there enemy No 1.
These huge buyouts of gold could be hidden so far by the West by selling a lot of paper gold contracts long, which are not covered by existing physical gold. However when the buyers of physical gold, in this case Russia and China, demand the delivery of the real gold ounces they have bought, which is once a month after Thanksgiving, the long sellers in the West will not have the gold and the whole COMEX must default. Read one more time Bill Holter’s article where this is explained.
The bottom line is that as long as the dollar as petrodollar is accepted worldwide, there is no need for gold. But when two big countries such as China as the biggest manufacturer and Russia as the biggest oil and gas producer worldwide decide to discard the dollar and establish their trade on their own currencies which are now based on gold, the dollar must devalue.
This is the bigger picture. The increase in gold purchase by these countries in the last months will thus only accelerate the dollar default which is actually caused by the underlying basic economic conditions. USA is bankrupt with a huge debt and does not produce anything anymore. It has a huge trade deficit of 700 billion $ per year for the last 30 years or so. In other words the USA buys real goods from China, Russia, and the rest of the world and pays with worthless toilet paper dollars which the FED prints out of thin air.
In September this year Saudi Arabia and the USA decided to harm Russia by crashing the oil price. The Russians know this and they played the same poker as imposed on them by the West. They did not reduce their oil production so that the oil price really went down.
The effect is that they killed the shale fracking industry of the USA, which was the only hope for the USA to become energetically independent. The shale fracking is profitable only if the oil price is above 100 $ per barrel. In addition the oil reserves were hugely exaggerated and recently it became known that 90% of the estimated oil reserves were fraudulent.
That is to say, both West Europe and the USA will remain dependent on oil and gas imports for years to come. They will be dependent on Russia and the Middle East. That is why the Americans now started two wars there in order to postpone the inevitable – the dismantling of the petrodollar as world currency to trade oil, gas and other commodities. This is an absurdity and the return to trade and exchange with local currencies, especially when they are based on gold as the rubble and the yuan already are, will come very soon.
When the Russians learnt that the USA wants to destroy their country by crashing the oil price as the main source of revenues for this country, they had no reservations any more, but to also crash the rigged Western monetary system. As they knew that the gold market is very limited, they started there with their leverage. The (dis)advantage of this market is that it is overloaded with derivative products known as paper gold contracts, which exceed thousands times the real gold amount in possession of the traders.
You can buy both paper gold contracts and physical gold. The Russians and the Chinese in cahoot decided to buy physical gold, which is actually an old strategy of both countries but now has become their main focus. They know that the USA wants to destroy both countries in order to install the NWO and they know what is at stake. They have no longer any reservations to use all possible legal means to destroy the USA as the latter would like to destroy these two countries or has already destroyed any other smaller country that has opposed the hegemonic policy of the USA.
The difference is that both countries are nuclear powers and as it now becomes evident, Russia is even better equipped with modern strategic weapons than the USA. Hence the latter cannot attack these countries directly but only through proxies as in Ukraine and the ongoing unrest in Hong Kong that was triggered by Western NGOs.
This political background explains why both countries have now decided to play “va banque” and default the USA, first through the gold market and then through abolishing the petrodollar. Only today Russia has signed trade agreements with Turkey, a NATO member, and with India in national currencies. In the past such trade was done in dollars and the countries had to hedge dollars first and then to exchange them one more time in their local currencies. This kept the dollar alive so far. Nobody except the AAA (Anglo-American Axis) wants to do this anymore and be dependent on the USA that has destroyed with its hegemonic policy more countries than any other power in modern time.
We are witnessing now the most dramatic moments in the history of mankind, where historical events that have started centuries ago will culminate to a final crescendo of destruction of the old matrix and our long-awaited return back home can finally take place.
With love and light
Thank you for all the time and energy you put in to explaining this to me! I see much more clearly now and I am super excited. I’ve lived in the US my whole life and am so sick of it’s bullying and starting conflicts constantly. I really must have been nuts to volunteer here, but oh well, it is at its final end now and finally I can see some sanity beginning to take hold. But we won’t be around for any new “economy” either, but the 4D worlds will enjoy much greater freedoms. Cheers to our very near homecoming and I hope we all prepare ourselves for nexth month. I feel that after our short reprieve, its going to be a whammy!
