    Domino #2: UK's Aviva Property Fund "Frozen" Due To "Lack Of Immediate Liquidity"




    "The dominoes are starting to fall in the U.K. commercial property market, as yet another fund locks its doors on the back of outflows precipitated by the Brexit vote. It’s probably only a matter of time before we see other funds follow suit."




    What Happens Next?





    Dow futures are now down 200 points from the post-Brexit highs. Having failed to take out pre-Brexit levels, stocks are starting to catch down to fresh record low Treasury yields...




    "Here They Come Again!" - Precious Metals Traders See Third Smackdown





    For the third time since Friday's close, gold and silver prices are being vertically challenged by an urgent 'seller'. In the latest round of monkey-hammering 'someone' decided to opportunistically sell over $1 billion notional gold in 5 minutes...


    Something Interesting From The Rumor Bag: The Next Big Risk For UK Stocks?





    "Had an interesting chat with a senior pm at brewin dolphin yesterday. Bd manages significant pool of uk pensions / charities / endowment funds. Their mandate is long only, real estate bonds shares. Essentially they selling out all the real estate and piling up in iShares ftse etf. Minimum fees, simple transaction, they get 10% return in one week. Everyone going into Blackrock I Shares FTSE ETF."


    WTI Plunges To $46 Handle After Unexpected Cushing Build





    WTI Crude has been leaking lower all night as supply disruptions ease and demand (cough China cough) expectations fall but Genscape's report of an unexpected 230k barrel build at Cushing has sparked another leg lower, back to a $46 handle...



    Governments Change; The Corporatocracy Endures





    Ultimately, the dominance of global capital (the Corporatocracy) is not financial - it's political.




    WTF Chart Of The Day - Factory Orders Collapse To Longest Streak In US History





    For the 19th month in a row, US Factory Orders decline YoY (-1.2% for May) with a 1% drop MoM. Simply put, in 60 years of historical data, the US economy has never, ever suffered a 19 month stretch of consecutive annual declines... and yet we are supposed to believe there is no recession?


    Silver Bounces Back Over $20 After China Day-Traders Trounced





    The last 48 hours in precious metals markets - more specifically silver - has been chaotic to say the least with a massive spike Sunday night above $21 and asudden flash crash overnight to $19.50 before rallying back above $20 this morning. But as Saxo's Ole Hanson warns, the biggest two-day surge in silver since 2011 has raised a few questions about the sustainability of the current rally and what is driving it as silver's recent rise mirrors a similar surge in steel rebar and iron ore futures in April.


    A Look Inside Europe's Next Crisis: Why Everyone Is Finally Panicking About Italian Banks





    Back in May 2013, we wrote an article titled "Europe's EUR 500 Billion Ticking NPL Time Bomb" in which we laid out the biggest danger facing European banks: non-performing loans. As of this moment, that time bomb may have finally gone off: as the WSJ writes overnight, the Brexit damage to the rest of Europe "could be more immediate and potentially more serious. Nowhere is the risk concentrated more heavily than in the Italian banking sector." Indeed, "Brexit could lead to a full-blown banking crisis in Italy." Here's why.



    Hungary Will Hold A Referendum On October 2 To Halt Inflow Of Migrants





    Hungary will hold a referendum on Oct. 2 on whether to accept any future European Union quota system for resettling migrants as Prime Minister Viktor Orban's government steps up its fight against the EU's migration policies. "The Hungarian government asks Hungarian citizens to say no to mandatory resettlement and to say no to the immigration policy of Brussels. Only Hungarians can decide with whom we want to live in Hungary." 


    Swiss Interest Rates Plunge To Negative Out To 50 Years





    With the short-end of the Swiss yield curve yielding below -100bps, it was only a matter of time before things went entirely mad at the long-end and today for the first time in history Swiss 50Y yields have tumbled below zero (trading as low as -2.7bps) as US Treasury yields tumble to fresh record lows.

    Bank Of England Unveils First Easing Measures After Brexit





    In its first official easing act, the Financial Policy Committee lowered the countercyclical-capital buffer rate for UK exposures to zero from .5% of risk-weighted assets in a move that it said would raise the capacity for bank lending to households and businesses by as much as £150 billion. "This action reinforces the FPC’s view that all elements of the substantial capital and liquidity buffers that have been built up by banks are to be drawn on, as necessary" the committee said in a statement.

    Swiss Interest Rates Plunge To Negative Out To 50 Years
    by Tyler Durden
    Jul 5, 2016 9:02 AM
    With the short-end of the Swiss yield curve yielding below -100bps, it was only a matter of time before things went entirely mad at the long-end and today for the first time in history Swiss 50Y yields have tumbled below zero (trading as low as -2.7bps) as US Treasury yields tumble to fresh record lows.


        As Bloomberg notes, rising concern about the outlook for economic growth and inflation effectively means that investors are paying the Swiss government for the privilege of lending to them out to 50 years.


        Britain's vote to leave the European Union has darkened the economic outlook beyond Britain's shores and increased investor demand for safe-haven government bonds, even when the yield is below zero. 

     
        That's because investors expect further interest rate cuts and monetary easing from central banks around the world in response to the increased uncertainty.  


        "It's a reflection on the very bad prospects for the European and global economy," said Ciaran O'Hagan, senior rates strategist at Societe Generale in Paris.   


        "Bond yields are driven by inflation and growth, but there's no inflation and there's no growth. The economy is built on confidence, and if there's no confidence there's no economy," he said.


    Which - obviously -means the entire Swiss government bond curve is now below zero..........

    Bank of England Eases Rules for Banks to Meet Brexit Challenge
    JULY 5, 2016
    REUTERS
        The Bank of England took steps to ensure British banks can keep lending and insurers do not dump corporate bonds in the "challenging" period that is likely to follow the country's shock vote to leave the European Union.
        The central bank said it would lower the amount of capital banks are required to hold in reserve, freeing up an extra 150 billion pounds for lending in a reversal of a decision it took earlier this year, when it started tightening screws on lenders because Britain's economy appeared on course for more growth.

        BoE Governor Mark Carney said the move represented a "major change" that would help the economy to weather the Brexit hit.

        "It means that three quarters of UK banks, accounting for 90 percent of the stock of UK lending, will immediately have greater flexibility to supply credit to UK households and firms," he told reporters.

        Sterling dropped more than 10 percent against the dollar and banks' share prices fell by a fifth after Britons voted on June 23 to leave the EU, prompting Prime Minister David Cameron to say he would step down.

        Sterling touched a new, 31-year low against the U.S. dollar earlier on Tuesday, hurt by Standard Life's suspension of trading in its British real estate fund but recovered some of its losses after the BoE announcement and Carney's comments.
        Twenty and 30-year British government bond yields briefly touched new record lows.

        With uncertainty about the future of George Osborne as finance minister, more responsibility has fallen on Carney and his fellow BoE policymakers to steer Britain through its worst political crisis in decades.

        Fresh signs of weakness in the economy appeared on Tuesday.

    Indian Banks Need $90 Billion to Meet Basel III Rules: Fitch
    JULY 5, 2016
    REUTERS
        India's banks will need about $90 billion to meet global Basel III rules which are due to be fully implemented by March 2019, Fitch Ratings said, calling the requirements "onerous" given the lenders' weak asset quality and internal capital generation.

        The capital needs of more than two dozen lenders that are majority owned by the state make up about 80 percent of the system total, the rating agency said in a statement on Tuesday. More than half the capital needs will have to be met via core equity, it added.

        "The sharp rise in their NPLs (non-performing loans) and resultant losses have weakened the banks' core capital buffers," Fitch said of the state-run banks, adding the "viability ratings" of the lenders would be under pressure if capital levels are not addressed either by the government or the market.

        With their weak metrics and high bad loans, India's state-run banks have not been investor favorites, forcing them to depend on the government for capital injection.

        The government has plans to inject 450 billion rupees ($6.7 billion) in the banks through March 2019.
        Fitch said the government and related entities will likely have to inject more so that the banks continue to lend.

    These six former Goldman Sachs bankers want to destroy your savings
    July 6, 2016
    London, England
     
    [Editor’s note: This letter was penned by Tim Price, London-based wealth manager and author of Price Value International.]
     
    Rule #1 in central banking: Never go full Draghi.
     
    Mario Draghi, of course, is the President of the European Central Bank (ECB) who pledged to do “whatever it takes” to save the euro. Or was it save the world? We forget.
     
    Anyhow, Mark Carney, the head of the Bank of England, just went full Draghi, pledging to do, effectively, whatever it takes... even if that means destroy the British pound or economy.
     
    Future historians will no doubt look back at this period in amazement, wondering, given the stunning and murderous failures of Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia, how central planning ever managed to find a last hold-out amongst the world’s central banks.
     
    Yes, Britain may have finally escaped from the EU lunatic asylum.
     
    But as investors we remain trapped in a surreal monetary nightmare in which clueless politicians and desperate central bankers have no choice but to print more money.
     
    This decision, of course, continually erodes the purchasing power of individuals’ savings. It is a tax. An inflation tax.
     
    And this is a tax that exclusively benefits those heavily indebted… namely governments and commercial banks.
     
    It is perhaps no wonder that our own head of the Bank of England, Mark Carney, is a former Goldman Sachs banker, along with ECB President Mario Draghi (another ex-Goldman Sachs banker).
     
    And not to mention the four Federal Reserve bank presidents in the United States who are also ex-Goldman Sachs bankers (the current heads of the Minneapolis, New York, Dallas, and Philadelphia branches).
     
    The list goes on.
     
    We truly have the best monetary system… that money can buy.
     
    My colleague Tony Deden recently reminded me of remarks given by novelist Alasdair Macleod to the Committee for Monetary Research and Education in October 2011:
      
      
    “I support sound money for two very good reasons. Firstly, it is a basic human right to choose to save, without our savings being debased by the tax of monetary inflation.
      
    “Those who are worst affected by this inflation tax are not the rich (they benefit) but the poor and the barely well-off, which is why monetary inflation undermines society and why the right to sound money should be respected.
      
    “If government gives itself a monopoly over money, it has a duty to protect the property rights vested in it.
      
    “Secondly, it is a basic right for us to own our own money rather than have it owned by the banks.
     
    “For them to take our money and expand credit on the back of it debases it. It is an abuse of an individual’s property rights, and a banking licence is a government licence to do so.
      
    “If anyone else was to do this they would be guilty of fraud. Banks should be custodians of our money, and it should not appear in their balance sheets as their property.
      
    “Sound money guarantees a stable yet progressive economy where people are truly equal. It allows people to save properly for their retirement so that they will not become a burden on the state.
      
    “It leads to democracy voting for small governments. It encourages peaceful trade and discourages war. It is the only path, after this mess, that leads us to long-lasting and peaceful prosperity. We really need everyone to understand this for the sake of our future.” 
     
    Until next time,
    Tim Price

    "The Dominoes Are Fallling": Three Largest UK Property Funds Freeze $12 Billion In Assets, More To Come
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-05/dominoes-are-fallling-three-largest-uk-property-funds-freeze-12-billion-assets-more-

    Jul 5, 2016 3:08 PM
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-05/dominoes-are-fallling-three-largest-uk-property-funds-freeze-12-billion-assets-more-



    As first reported last night, and following up this morning, in an episode painfully reminiscent of the Bear hedge fund "freezes" that preceded the bank's 2008 collapse and the great financial crisis, first the UK's Standard Life halted trading in its property fund, followed hours later by both Aviva and M&G which likewise announced they are suspending trading in their own portfolio funds. And, as Bloomberg summarizes, three of the U.K.’s largest real estate funds have frozen almost 9.1 billion pounds ($12 billion) of assets after Britain’s shock vote to leave the European Union sparked a flurry of redemptionsThese were the first major dominoes to fall as a result of the confusion resulting from the Brexit vote. M&G Investments, Aviva Investors and Standard Life Investments halted withdrawals because they don’t have enough cash to immediately repay investors. About 24.5 billion pounds is allocated to U.K. real estate funds, according to the Investment Association.

    The rush by private investors to withdraw money prompted M&G, which held 7.7% in cash before the vote, to suspend its 4.4 billion-pound Property Portfolio fund and Aviva Investors to freeze its 1.8 billion-pound Property Trust on Tuesday. Standard Life halted trading on its 2.9 billion-pound U.K. real estate fund on Monday. The cash position for Aviva and Standard Life’s funds at the end of May was 9.3% and 13.1% respectively.
    The market reaction has been swift and brutal, sending stocks of the property-linked asset managers crashing.

    The Big-Bank Bloodbath: Losses Near Half a Trillion Dollars
    At 20 big banks, plunging share prices this year have erased a quarter of their combined market value
    DAVID REILLY
    Updated July 6, 2016 6:58 p.m. ET

    Big banks are nearly half a trillion dollars in the hole.
    Since the start of 2016, 20 of the world’s bigger banks have lost a quarter of their combined market value. Added up, it equals about $465 billion, according to FactSet data.

        Brexit isn’t all to blame. True, bank stocks have plummeted since the U.K. voted last month to leave the European Union. But they have been losing value since the start of the year, when a group of factors—the Chinese economy, the path of U.S. interest rates, oil prices—weighed on the markets.

        More than pride is at stake. Sharp share-price falls will make it much more difficult, and expensive, for banks to raise capital if that is what is ultimately needed to shore up their balance sheets.

        Just as bad, a serious decline in market value can breed inaction among bank executives. Instead of selling equity when they can, executives may wait for share prices to recover, only to find themselves in a worse situation as stocks drop even further.

        Another potential worry: As bank share prices decline, employees get antsy. Compensation packages that include stock options or restricted stock suddenly become a lot less attractive.

        To get a handle on the severity of 2016 for banks, The Wall Street Journal examined the biggest U.S., U.K. and Swiss banks, some of the biggest European ones, as well as the biggest bank in each of China and Japan.

        The group included: J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. Wells Fargo & Co., Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., Goldman Sachs Group, Morgan Stanley, Royal Bank of Scotland PLC, HSBC Holdings, Barclays PLC, Standard Chartered PLC, UBS Group AG, Credit Suisse Group AG, BNP Paribas SA, Credit Agricole SA, Société Générale SA, UniCredit SpA, Deutsche Bank AG, Banco Santander SA, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Ltd. and Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc.

        The biggest market-value losers, in dollar terms, so far this year: Italy’s UniCredit has lost nearly two-thirds of its value; Royal Bank of Scotland has fallen around 56%; and Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and Barclays have all about halved.

        Those who have lost the least: J.P. Morgan Chase and Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, which are both down about 10%. In local-currency terms, share prices for all 20 banks are down year to date, except Standard Chartered, which is flat.

        Despite such gloom, many banks say they don’t need to raise capital. Indeed, in the U.S. at least, the Fed’s recent bank stress tests asserted that big banks can weather particularly bad market storms. The Fed also approved plans at all the largest U.S. banks to return some capital to shareholders.

        Valuations show investors aren’t feeling so confident. UniCredit, for instance, trades at about 21% of book value, a measure of a bank’s net worth, according to FactSet. Deutsche Bank trades at about 26%, or where it was during the darkest days of the financial crisis.

        In fact, among the group of 20 big banks only one bank—Wells Fargo—trades at a premium to its book value. Only one other, J.P. Morgan Chase, trades near book value.

    A bank trading below book value can signal that investors have questions about capital strength. It can also show markets are worried about future profitability and a firm’s ability to generate returns that exceed its cost of capital.
        Plunging bond yields around the globe have exacerbated the latter concern by pressuring banks’ profit margins.
    The fact that some banks are trading at less than half their book value flags even deeper concerns. Among the likely issues: A brewing battle within the EU over rules curtailing governments’ ability to bail out banks and whether those could be put on hold.

        All of this has many once-mighty banks looking like shadows of their former selves. Deutsche Bank, Germany’s national banking champion and still a big player on Wall Street, now has a market value that in dollar terms is less than that of SunTrust Banks Inc., the regional U.S. bank focused on the Southeast. And the market values of UniCredit, Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse combined wouldn’t equal that of Goldman Sachs—itself down about 20% this year.

    CNBC: Gold and silver will be the last 'currencies' standing

    The era of modern day monetary omniscience is coming to an end.

    Look no further than the near 30-percent year-to-date rally in gold that has it sitting at 28-month highs and the almost 50-percent rise in silver this year to near two-year highs. 

    Look at gold as the anti-fiat currency. The one that can't be manipulated, debased, and conjured up electronically at one's whim. One has to actually dig it out from the ground. Thus, it is referred to as "precious" as there is a limited supply. 

    While all the gold that has ever been mined still exists, you can fit it all in two Olympic-size swimming pools. It is a rare commodity – actually, I'd rather refer to it as a currency. And rare is not something that can be said for the world's paper currencies that have been and continue to be printed in the trillions. 

    What changed and why now? 

    After rallying for 12 straight years and peaking in September 2011 at around $1,900 per troy ounce, gold fell into a very lengthy bear market that I believe ended in December 2015 at $1,050. The trigger for the end of the bear and the onset of the bull I attribute to a few things.

    For those who haven't read my first book here's your FREE copy:
     
    Book I: "Silver, Gold, Bitcoin...and God!" by Bix Weir
    http://www.roadtoroota.com/public/1530.cfm
     
    All the chaos going on right now in the world has been laid out clearly in my books. This is a carefully constructed script that continues to be followed by those running the game:
     
    1) Prop up the stock markets via unlimited computer rigging
     
    2) Hold the price of gold, silver and Bitcoin in check
     
    3) Foment massive amounts of chaos during the 2016 "Summer From Hell"

    GETTY
    IMF managing director Christine Lagarde has always warned of the dangers of Brexit
    IMF says EU on brink of collapse, while euro currency may have to be scrapped

    THE FUTURE of euro currency and the entire EU project looks unsustainable without major change, according to a damning review by the International Monetary Fund and renowned economists.


    IMF chiefs warned the UK’s decision to leave the EU would seriously hamper growth prospects in the region.

    Before the Brexit vote, the IMF forecast a 1.7 per cent expansion for the eurozone.

    However, post Brexit the organisation revised that down to 1.6 per cent this year and 1.4 per cent next year.

    26 Million Americans Are Now "Too Poor To Shop" Study Finds
    A new study finds that roughly 26 million Americans remain "too poor to shop". The study, performed by America's Research Group, found that about 26 million Americans work on average two or three jobs at a time which, when added together, nets just shy of $30,000 in annual income. All while supporting anywhere from two to four children.
    The chairman of ARG, Mr. Britt Beemer, said in an interview with the NY Post that he first started looking into data when he was tracking a different indicator. Beemer first started tracking a group and surveying roughly 15,000 people to determine who had not finished Christmas shopping in 2014. During that year, the number was 21 percent but recently ran as high as 29%. From there Beemer decided to analyze the data further and learned American's are seeing increasing numbers of fellow citizens who are simply just too poor to shop.
    Beemer told the Post: "The poorest Americans have stopped shopping, except for necessities" and "It's scary when you start to see things that you've never seen before"..."People are so pessimistic about their future"
    Just this past April we wrote: "most Americans' savings continue to decline, and millions of US households not only don't have any money left over to save away, but are forced to resort to credit to fund day to day expenses."

    Recall from January the piece from the Atlantic that review that weak state of American's finances. The Atlantic learned that nearly 50% of Americans were not in a position to find $400 to pay of a doctor visit without reaching out to friends So not only are 26 million Americans too poor to shop, there are also 2/3 of Americans who have no savings.



    "Various surveys that I have talked about in the past have found that more than 60 percent of all Americans are living to paycheck to paycheck, but I didn’t realize that things were quite this bad for about half the country. If you can’t even come up with $400 for an unexpected emergency room visit, then you are just surviving from month to month by the skin of your teeth. Unfortunately, about half of us are currently in that situation."
    As The NY Post details, retailers have blamed the weather, slow job growth and millennials for their poor results this past year, but a new study claims that more than 20 percent of Americans are simply too poor to shop.


    These 26 million Americans are juggling two to three jobs, earning just around $27,000 a year and supporting two to four children — and exist largely under the radar, according to America’s Research Group, which has been tracking consumer shopping trends since 1979. “The poorest Americans have stopped shopping, except for necessities,” said Britt Beemer, chairman of ARG.
     
    Beemer has been tracking this subgroup for two years, ever since his weekly surveys of 15,000 consumers picked up that 21 percent of consumers did not finish their Christmas shopping in 2014 due to being too busy working.
     
    That number grew to 29 percent last year, and Beemer dug in to learn more about them, calling them on holidays. He estimates that this group has swelled from 6 million households four years ago, because their incomes have not kept pace with expenses like medical costs.
     
    Nearly half of all Americans have not seen an increase in salary over the last five to seven years, and another 28 percent have seen their take-home pay reduced by higher medical insurance deductions or switching to part-time jobs, ARG found. “It’s scary when you start to see things that you’ve never seen before,” said Beemer.
     
    “People are so pessimistic about their future.” Most of those living on the edge — 68 percent are women between the ages of 28 and 38 — work in retail or in call centers, according to Beemer.
     
    Another sign that a chunk of the population has pulled back its spending is that discounters like Walmart and the Dollar Store have been “holding their own,” said Richard Church, managing director of Discern Securities.
    The story of the increasing difficulty facing Americans in maintaining their standard of living continues... even after almost 10 years of Federal Reserve market-based intervention.

    How George Soros Singlehandedly Created The European Refugee Crisis - And Why







    In 2015, a Sky News reporter found “Migrant Handbooks” on the Greek island of Lesbos. It was later revealed that the handbooks, which are written in Arabic, had been given to refugees before crossing the Mediterranean by a group called “Welcome to the EU.” Welcome to the EU is funded by—you guessed it—George Soros' Open Society Foundations. Soros has not only backed groups that advocate the resettlement of third-world migrants into Europe, he in fact is the architect of the “Merkel Plan.”

    Race War? We Are ALL Being Played...And Losing Badly


    Bix Weir


    In my last interview I talked a lot about how we are being pitted to fight against each other when we should be fighting against the Bad Guys and Banksters.


    Bix Weir: Who is the REAL Enemy?
    https://youtu.be/pVFAVqOqLZM


    After the very likely False Flag Attack in Dallas the heat has been turned up once again. What started as the Right/Left battle quickly turned into the Trump/Sanders battle and is now turning into a Race War pitting Black Lives Matter against the Establishment Police.


    News of the Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson supposedly getting his Twitter account hacked exposing him as coordinating with AG Loretta Lynch to cause riots at the Presidential Conventions SMELLS of "psyops" games.


    And then last night Mckesson gets arrested in Baton Rouge for "peacefully protesting" - just another part of a very calculated and perfectly executed Bad Guy maneuver in their quest to stir the pot.

    As usual, take with a grain of salt.

    Khazarian mafia power structure crumbling in very public fashion


    Posted by benjamin
    July 11, 2016

    There is a Soviet Union style collapse undeniably taking place in the EU and a civil war brewing in the United States as Khazarian mafia control of the West’s political apparatus continues to fall apart. This is a unique opportunity for humanity to seize freedom after thousands of years of terror and Babylonian style debt slavery. The names in the link below are being circulated among the military and the agencies and are considered to be “actionable intelligence” about the Khazarian mafia.

    https://ehpg.wordpress.com/israel-did-911/

    The people on that link are only a partial list of those who are being hunted down. A deck of gold backed playing cards will be issued later this week with the names of top Khazarian crime bosses and the size of the gold bounty that will be made available upon their capture.

    Some top Khazarians like the Bushes, Clintons, the Rockefellers and senior lieutenants like Henry Kissinger are already being prevented from fleeing justice, according to CIA sources. The Khazarian mafia rats who are able to run and hide have already begun to do so.

    Baron David de Rothschild, the Swiss based head of Rothschild Continuation Holdings and of UK based NM Rothschild, the effective head of the Rothschild clan, has “gone off the radar,” according to CIA sources. The group is now being run by the deputy chairman, they say. The phone number at their Zug, Switzerland compound also seems to be no longer working.

    However, a CIA source in Europe who says he “talked to Rothschild last night,” says not only are the Rothschilds not in hiding but that “they believe they will be the only ones standing” when the dust settles.

    Certainly, if they were the ones who pushed carbon trading as an alternative to killing 90% of the world’s population, they won’t face charges of genocide and mass murder like the Bushes and their ilk.

    The Chinese government seems to think they are OK since they have told the heads of over 20 countries they favor a Rothschild/White Dragon Society alliance, Chinese government sources say. No formal deal has been reached as of this writing but, contact was made just one hour before the July 10th deadline passed.

    In any case, in an interesting development, mass murderer, top Khazarian mafia henchman and Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu is being investigated by Israeli authorities for “massive money laundering in very high amounts,” meaning “billions of dollars,” according to Mossad sources. For this reason Netanyahu has already made preparations to flee to his hideout in Patagonia, Argentina. The source says either a Netanyahu double will stay behind to take the rap or else Netanyahu will fake his death through “heart attack or stroke.” However, “the real deal is off to the cold country,” the source says. This could be a reference to the Nazi Antarctic bases, the source admits.

    Netanyahu may be seeking to hide because the Khazarian mafia’s situation in the US is reaching a boiling point, multiple sources inside the Pentagon and the agencies agree.

    The focus of the anger is the fact the FBI refused to press criminal charges against Hillary Clinton even though FBI Director James Comey publicly accused her of crime. Here is how a Pentagon sources summarized the situation: “The mass outrage at Hillary skating and Department of Justice corruption unites the GOP, mil/intel/law enforcement community into a powerful force for regime change against the backdrop of global currency reset and new republic with gold-backed currency.”

    Even though Hillary Clinton avoided criminal charges, her presidential bid has been effectively destroyed by the negative publicity surrounding this fiasco. “She is damaged goods who lost the public trust and any chance of winning the White House since she may be denied security clearances and classified intelligence briefings,” the Pentagon source explains.

    The source also says “President Obama hates Hillary and leaked the e-mail server information in March, 2015 to make sure Hilary won’t win, even as he pretends to campaign for her.”

    Comey’s press conference also left on the public record many grounds for Hillary to be charged with crime in the future. These include leaking state secrets to Israel, “gross negligence” with classified information, perjury to Congress over Benghazi and much more.

    Public outrage has already forced the US State Department to announce they will reopen the investigation into her e-mails. The Pentagon and agencies have also cut off Hillary’s access to classified information as a result of this scandal. In any case, the entire e-mail scandal is a distraction from the Clinton Foundation corruption that threatens to take down most of the Washington DC political establishment.

    To prevent the Clinton foundation troubles from spreading, there is also “kill Bill” talk at high levels. Here is how the Pentagon source put it: “A state funeral for Bill would silence Hillary forever, but she would still be prosecuted for leaking and selling state secrets.”

    Since Bill Clinton is the son of Winthrop Rockefeller, the Rockefeller faction of the Khazarian mafia may be trying to distract from Hillary’s problems by starting a race war. This was the seeming objective of last week’s Dallas police shooting, which may or may not have involved the actual killing of 5 police officers by a man claiming to “hate whites.”

    The Rockefeller hand can be seen in the funding of the hate group Black Lives Matter. It can also be seen as David Rockefeller’s grandson Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook put up a huge “Black Lives Matter” banner on its headquarters after the Dallas incident.

    http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index2069.htm

    Also, the Rockefeller controlled United Nations Corporation followed by condemning “structural and institutional racism” in the US.

    https://www.rt.com/news/350270-un-institutional-racism-us-killings/

    Despite this, Pentagon sources promise “the George Soros-sponsored terror group Black Lives Matter will not be allowed to start race wars to install martial law or suspend elections.”

    Several sources also warned there would be a big attempt to use paid thugs to disrupt the Republican convention due to start next week.

    Many sources say they expect riots and trouble throughout the summer and heading into the autumn in the US. One Pentagon source went so far as to say that as far as he was concerned civil war has already started in the US.

    The situation in the EU has also degenerated to the point that NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg admitted “We are in a new situation which is different from anything we have experienced before.”

    http://tass.ru/en/world/887240

    Although he was referring to relations with Russia, he was also admitting the world was entering uncharted territory. This is because the United Nations Corporation, the EU and the US are all bankrupt as are their subsidiary organizations like the World Bank and the IMF.

    http://neilkeenan.com/neil-keenan-update-un-secretary-general-ban-ki-moon-attempts-to-pull-the-wool-over-chinese-korean-eyes-only-to-find-theres-no-wool/#comments

    At least the scenario for the collapse of the EU has already been charted by the collapse of the Soviet Union. It will mean that EU countries will leave one by one until a more democratic and transparent European structure, one that includes Russia, is established.

    The public squabbles between various EU leaders and factions since the British people decided to restore their independence make this evidently clear.

    The fighting has included Italy proclaiming a 150 billion Euro fund to save its collapsing banking system only to have the Germans publicly rebuke them and say they would not pay. Then Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi retorted by saying Italian bank’s problems were tiny compared to the derivatives problems of other European banks. This was widely interpreted to mean Deutschebank.

    Renzi may be talking tough because his party is behind in polls to the anti-EU Five Star Movement headed Bepe Grillo.

    http://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-italy-banks-renzi-idUKKCN0ZM1YL

    Also, a 29 billion Euro German bank has effectively gone under and may trigger a domino effect.

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-07/europes-bank-crisis-arrives-germany-%E2%82%AC29-billion-bremen-landesbank-verge-failure

    The French people meanwhile, are in a state of open revolt as riots there continue non-stop even though the propaganda press is trying to ignore them. Close to 90% of the population disapproves of President Francois Hollande.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2016/07/05/nearly-90-percent-of-the-french-now-disapprove-of-their-president/

    In these circumstances, the EU has already lost its power to force decisions on its member nations. This was seen when the EU tried to reach a trade deal with Canada only to have Germany and France say their Parliaments needed to ratify the agreement. This prompted European Commission chief Jeane-Claude Juncker to declare that all 27 EU parliaments would have to do the same. The result is the EU leadership is now fully dysfunctional.

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-06/incredibly-stupid-juncker-opens-pandoras-box

    There is a lot more to the EU chaos but you get the general picture; things are falling apart.

    In the newly independent UK, meanwhile, the official release of the long delayed Chilcot report makes it abundantly clear that the Iraqi invasion was illegal and Bush stooge Tony Blair is a war criminal. The British are now seriously reconsidering keeping a military alliance with the US so long as it remains in the control of the Khazarian mafia.

    The same is happening with the Turks who have done a 180 degree turn around vis a vis Russia. Last November they shot down a Russian warplane and asked NATO to start a war with Russia. Now, according to Turkish news reports, they have invited Russian troops into Turkey. These reports were later denied but clearly the NATO country with the second largest military after the US is thinking of joining Russia and China in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization together with India, Pakistan, Iran, Egypt and Israel. That would leave Saudi Arabia completely friendless unless it too abandons its alliance with the Khazarians. The loss of Saudi oil money will be a fatal blow to the Khazarians.

    Of course, the dying Khazarian mob says they are going to go down fighting and we can expect provocations in areas like the South China Sea, incidents involving North Korea, terrorism, bombings, false flag attacks etc. Nonetheless, it is clear humanity is winning the battle for the planet earth.

    Anonymous - Message to the Citizens of the World III


    At this point in history virtually every human on this planet is enslaved whether they know it or not. This is not the crude and primitive slavery of ancient times, it does not rely on whips and shackles to keep the oppressed in their place. These tools have been rendered obsolete by much more sophisticated methods.

    That most of the enslaved are unaware of their condition and would in fact argue fiercely that they are free is a testament to the effectiveness of these invisible chains.

    You've heard the expression "Money makes the world go round". There's truth in that.

    Money is the prime motive for human labor in modern civilization. If you want food, shelter and clothing you must have money, and unless you are part of the tiny minority who have more money than they could ever spend in their lifetime, then you must work, beg or steal for that money. That's why you get up in the morning to go to work even if you hate your job, and that's why the specter of unemployment is more terrifying for most people than the prospect of spending 50 years of their life performing menial tasks within the confines of a florescent lit cubicle.

    Of course in western countries some are fortunate enough to have pulled away from the brink and do not live in fear that their basic needs will be met, at least for now, yet they keep spinning the hamster wheel. Why? Because money and the bling it buys have become symbols of status and prestige. Money offers an illusory form of social validation, but even those who are not caught up in distinguishing themselves by how much they accumulate still must acknowledge the social stigma that comes with poverty.

    The combination of these primal motivators: the need for food, shelter, clothing, and social validation, is a very powerful force. It's enough to drive humans to engage in all forms of activity, even to the point of harming themselves or others in the process. The accumulation of money is therefore an accumulation of social and psychological power, and those who control the creation of money control this power at its source.

    So who controls the creation of money? Well in the case of the U.S. dollar, it's not the government. This shouldn't be an earth shattering revelation. The fact that the Federal Reserve is a private institution owned by a cartel of the world's most powerful banks is quickly becoming common knowledge; even the mainstream media doesn't deny it at this point.

    However the full extent of what this means is only clear when you understand how the banking system really works, and unfortunately this is something we aren't taught in school. Once you have it explained to you in simple terms you'll understand why.

    Every dollar in circulation is loaned into existence by a bank. The process begins with the Federal reserve when they loan out money to the U.S. government and to other entities. You've probably heard this talked about before, especially in regards to the interest rate on these loans which the Federal Reserve raises and lowers depending on economic conditions, but what is never talked about in the mainstream is the fact that the Fed isn't actually loaning out money that they have, they are merely typing those dollars into existence on a computer. You may be inclined to believe that this money is based on some physical backing like gold, but you would be mistaken. The Federal Reserve hasn't owned any gold since the 1930s.

    When the Federal Reserve loans money to the U.S. government, the U.S. government gives the Federal Reserve government bonds in exchange. These bonds are simply written promises to pay back the money that was loaned to them with interest through taxation. So to be clear here, the government is taking out a loan from a bank that is creating the money out of thin air, and they're expecting you the tax payer to cover that loan. The absurdity of this arrangement is even more obvious when you realize that up until 1913 the U.S. government created its own money, and had no need for a bank to play the part of a middle man.

    That new money loaned out by the Federal Reserve enters circulation through banks, accumulates in banks, and in the end the banks end up holding all of the cards, but not necessarily for the reasons you may imagine. Contrary to popular belief the majority of money in circulation isn't actually created by the Federal Reserve, but rather by the ordinary banks that businesses and individuals use for their checking, savings, and mortgages. How is this possible? Well, like the Federal Reserve, ordinary banks are allowed to loan out money they don't have. There are of course restrictions. Banks are only allowed to loan 10 times the amount that they actually have. So if Wells Fargo has 1000 dollars they can loan you 10,000 dollars, and they expect you to pay back that 10,000 dollars plus interest. This is called fractional reserve banking; 75% of all money in circulation is created in this manner.

    Now as bad as this may seem it's really only the tip of the iceberg. Most banks structure payment plans so that for many years you are paying almost nothing but interest and only start paying down the principle gradually. The result of this strategy is that in most cases you pay far more in interest when you purchase a house than the house itself is worth.

    So here's the real question: If all money is created through loans, where does the money come from for to pay for the interest? Let's say we reset the system to zero, loan 1000 dollars into existence and charge 7% interest. We now have 1000 dollars in the system but we owe 1000 dollars plus interest and that's more.

    The money to pay the interest doesn't exist, never has, never will. This would be obvious if there were only one loan being issued to one person in this manner, but when performed on a global scale the reality is hidden, and is transformed into a game of musical chairs where the person ending up without a seat faces bankruptcy and financial ruin. The interest insures that there is always more debt than money in circulation.

    Because every dollar in existence is tied to a debt this creates an unseen force that draws those dollars back to the banks, like gravity attracts a physical object to earth. The catch here is that it is the work of the people that moves that money.

    Every hour that you work to pay back a loan or to keep the government from throwing you in jail over income taxes is an hour worked for the banks. The total receipts from personal income taxes just barely covers the interest on the national debt, and even the principle on that debt all ends up back in the hands of the banks. Once you understand that the money that the banks loans out isn't actually an asset, but is in fact a piece of legal fiction it should be clear that you are working for these banks for free. This is a cleverly disguised form of slavery.

    If you manage to maintain your monthly payments then you are a successful slave, and you are allowed to keep the material comforts that come with that status, but if for some reason you fail to make your monthly payments then the bank or the IRS comes takes your house, your car and anything else you have of value. If somehow even with this enormous financial advantage the banks still manage to get themselves into trouble you the taxpayer will be forced to bail them out. No matter what the banks win. To say the game is rigged is an understatement.

    You might be inclined to think that if you live outside the United States and don't use dollars then this situation has no bearing on your life, but you would be wrong. The dollar is both the world reserve currency and the only currency in which oil is sold on the global markets (this is often referred to as the petrodollar status). This means that where ever you live, whether your country is an oil exporter or an oil importer you are affected.

    If your country is an oil importer you are effected by the fact that in order to keep your country running you have to acquire dollars. To acquire those dollars you have to send goods and services to the United States or to someone else who did. You too are a slave to the bankers.

    Likewise if your country is an oil exporter you are affected by the fact that you send your oil to the U.S. in exchange for this debt based money. You are exchanging something of real and tangible value for digits on a screen. If for some reason the leadership of your country grows tired of this arrangement and tries to pull off of the dollar you'll quickly find the United States military at your doorstep ready to open up a can of democracy on you. Iraq learned this the hard way when they switched their oil sales to Euros in 2000 and Libya when they tried to organize a gold based currency for Africa.

    Debt based money is a masterpiece of social engineering, the ultimate tool of the ruling elite, and yet in reality the whole thing is nothing more than a construct of belief.

    Our chains are chains of the mind, and the path to freedom must also begin in the mind. If we want a better future for our children and grandchildren we must work right now to reach a critical mass of awakening.

    War Is Coming And The Global Financial Situation Is A Lot Worse Than You May Think



    Submitted by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog, 


    On the surface, things seem pretty quiet in mid-July 2016.  The biggest news stories were about the speculation surrounding Donald Trump’s choice of running mate (no we know), the stock market in the U.S. keeps setting new all-time record highs [5], and the media seems completely obsessed with Taylor Swift’s love life [6].  But underneath the surface, it is a very different story.  As you will see below, the conditions for a “perfect storm” are coming together very rapidly, and the rest of 2016 promises to be much more chaotic than what we have seen so far.


    Let’s start with China.  On Tuesday, an international tribunal in the Hague ruled against China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea.  The Chinese government announced ahead of time that they do not recognize the jurisdiction of the tribunal, and they have absolutely no intention of abiding by the ruling.  In fact, China is becoming even more defiant in the aftermath of this ruling.  We aren’t hearing much about it in the U.S. media, but according to international news reports Chinese president Xi Jinping has ordered the People’s Liberation Army “to prepare for combat [7]” with the United States if the Obama administration presses China to abandon the islands that they are currently occupying in the South China Sea…


    “Chinese president Xi Jinping has reportedly ordered the People’s Liberation Army to prepare for combat,” reports Arirang.com [8]. “U.S.-based Boxun News said Tuesday that the instruction was given in case the United States takes provocative action in the waters once the ruling is made.”
     
    A U.S. aircraft carrier and fighter jets were already sent to the region in anticipation of the ruling, with the Chinese Navy also carrying out exercises near the disputed Paracel islands.

    Last October, China said it was “not frightened” to fight a war [9] with the U.S. following an incident where the guided-missile destroyer USS Lassen violated the 12-nautical mile zone China claims around Subi and Mischief reefs in the Spratly archipelago.

    Meanwhile, the relationship between the United States and Russia continues to go from bad to worse.  The installation of a missile defense system in Romania [10] is just the latest incident that has the Russians absolutely steaming, and during a public appearance on June 17th [11] Russian President Vladimir Putin tried to get western reporters to understand that the world is being pulled toward war…


    “We know year by year what’s going to happen, and they know that we know. It’s only you that they tell tall tales to, and you buy it, and spread it to the citizens of your countries. You people in turn do not feel a sense of the impending danger – this is what worries me. How do you not understand that the world is being pulled in an irreversible direction? While they pretend that nothing is going on. I don’t know how to get through to you anymore.



    And of course the Russians have been feverishly updating and modernizing their military in preparation for a potential future conflict with the United States.  Just today we learned that the Russians are working to develop a hypersonic strategic bomber that is going to have the capability of striking targets with nuclear warheads from outer space[12].


    Unfortunately, the Obama administration does not feel a similar sense of urgency.  The size of our strategic nuclear arsenal has declined by about 95 percent since the peak of the Cold War, and many of our installations are still actually using rotary phones and the kind of 8 inch floppy disks for computers that were widely used back in the 1970s.


    But I don’t expect war with China or Russia to erupt by the end of 2016.  Of much more immediate concern is what is going on in the Middle East.  The situation in Syria continues to deteriorate, but it is Israel that could soon be the center of attention.


    Back in March, the Wall Street Journal [13] reported that the Obama administration wanted to revive the peace process in the Middle East before Obama left office, and that a UN Security Council resolution that would divide the land of Israel and set the parameters for a Palestinian state was still definitely on the table…


    The White House is working on plans for reviving long-stalled Middle East negotiations before President Barack Obama leaves office, including a possible United Nations Security Council resolution that would outline steps toward a deal between the Israelis and Palestinians, according to senior U.S. officials.

    And just this week, the Washington Post [14] reported that there were renewed “rumblings” about just such a resolution…


    Israel is facing a restive European Union, which is backing a French initiative that seeks to outline a future peace deal by year’s end that would probably include a call for the withdrawal of Israeli troops and the creation of a Palestinian state. There are also rumblings that the U.N. Security Council might again hear resolutions about the conflict.

    For years, Barack Obama has stressed the need for a Palestinian state, and now that his second term is drawing to a close he certainly realizes that this is his last chance to take action at the United Nations.  If he is going to pull the trigger and support a UN resolution formally establishing a Palestinian state, it will almost certainly happen before the election in November.  So over the coming months we will be watching these developments very carefully.


    And it is interesting to note that there is an organization called “Americans For Peace Now” that is collecting signatures and strongly urging Obama to support a UN resolution of this nature.  The following comes from their official website [15]…

    Now is the time for real leadership that can revive and re-accredit the two-state solution as President Obama enters his final months in office. And he can do this – he can lay the groundwork for a two-state agreement in the future by supporting an Israeli-Palestinian two-state resolution in the United Nations Security Council.
     
    Such a resolution would restore U.S. leadership in the Israeli-Palestinian arena. It would preserve the now-foundering two-state outcome. And it would be a gift to the next president, leaving her or him constructive options for consequential actions in the Israeli-Palestinian arena, in place of the ever-worsening, politically stalemated status quo there is today.

    Sadly, a UN resolution that divides the land of Israel and that formally establishes a Palestinian state would not bring lasting peace.  Instead, it would be the biggest mistake of the Obama era, and it would set the stage for a major war between Israel and her neighbors.  This is something that I discussed during a recent televised appearance down at Morningside that you can watch right here [16]…


    At the same time all of this is going on, the global economic crisis continues to escalate.  Even though U.S. financial markets are in great shape at the moment [5], the same cannot be said for much of the rest of the world.


    Just look at the country that is hosting the Olympics this summer.  Brazil is mired in the worst economic downturn that it has seen since the Great Depression of the 1930s, and Rio de Janeiro’s governor has declared “a state of financial emergency [17]“.


    Next door, the Venezuelan economy has completely collapsed, and some people have become so desperate that they are actually hunting cats, dogs and pigeons for food[18].


    Elsewhere, China is experiencing the worst economic downturn that they have seen in decades, the Japanese are still trying to find the end of their “lost decade”, and the banking crisis in Europe is getting worse with each passing month.


    In quite a few articles recently, I have discussed the ongoing implosion of the biggest and most important bank in Germany.  But I am certainly not the only one warning about this.  In one of his recent articles, Simon Black [19] also commented on the turmoil at “the most dangerous bank in Europe”…


    Well-capitalized banks are supposed to have double-digit capital levels while making low risk investments.
     
    Deutsche Bank, on the other hand, has a capital level of less that 3% (just like Lehman), and an incredibly risky asset base that boasts notional derivatives exposure of more than $70 trillion, roughly the size of world GDP.

    But of course Deutsche Bank isn’t getting a lot of attention from the mainstream media right now because of the stunning meltdown of banks in Italy, Spain and Greece.  Here is more from Simon Black [19]…


    Italian banks are sitting on over 360 billion euros in bad loans right now and are in desperate need of a massive bailout.
     
    IMF calculations show that Italian banks’ capital levels are among the lowest in the world, just ahead of Bangladesh.
     
    And this doesn’t even scratch the surface of problems in other banking jurisdictions.
     
    Spanish banks have been scrambling to raise billions in capital to cover persistent losses that still haven’t healed from the last crisis.
     
    In Greece, over 35% of all loans in the banking system are classified as “non-performing”.

    Even though U.S. stocks are doing well for the moment, the truth is that trillions of dollars of stock market wealth has been lost globally since this time last year.  If you are not familiar with what has been going on around the rest of the planet, this may come as a surprise to you.  During my recent appearance at Morningside, I shared some very startling charts which show how dramatically global markets have shifted over the past 12 months.  You can view the segment in which I shared these charts right here [20]…


    I would really like it if the rest of 2016 was as quiet and peaceful as the past couple of days have been.


    Unfortunately, I don’t believe that is going to be the case at all.


    The storm clouds are rising and the conditions for a “perfect storm” are brewing.  Sadly, most people [21] are not going to understand what is happening until it is far too late.

    Chaos everywhere as current world order continues to collapse while new age begins
    Posted by benjamin
    July 19, 2016

    The world situation is becoming increasingly chaotic with major events taking place in Turkey, France, Japan, the United States, China and elsewhere. The events are all linked to the ongoing collapse of the global structure that was put in place at the end of World War 2. Chinese government analysts believe the entire current world architecture will suffer a total systems collapse by the year 2018 after which a new, improved, structure will replace it. For this reason they expect accelerating global turmoil between now and then.

    Let us start with a look at the attempted coup d’etat in Turkey last week. Mossad sources tried to pin the attempt on Russia and added “this was just round one.” However, Pentagon sources say jets piloted by Israeli trained Saudi Arabian pilots flying out of the NATO airbase in Incirlik dropped a bright flashing but not very damage causing low grade nuclear weapon in front of the Turkish Parliament building during the attempted overthrow of President Recep Erdogan.

    http://www.veteranstoday.com/2016/07/15/turkish-parliament-nuked-during-coup-attempt/

    The Pentagon sources suspect Erdogan used light shows like that as part of a staged the coup attempt against himself in order to give him an excuse to purge the Turkish military and law enforcement agencies of rivals. One Pentagon source said that “because Erdogan renewed ties to Mossad and may steal US nukes at Incirlik to arm ISIS, the coup is far from over.”

    Chinese government sources, however, had a very different interpretation of events in Turkey. They say the Turkish government was attacked because it was moving away from NATO and towards the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. The Turkish government is also negotiating with the Iranian government to create a Sunni/Shia Muslim alliance and renew the Caliphate. The Khazarian mafia front organization ISIS (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) is trying to stop this by creating a fake Caliphate and acting in disgusting ways designed to make everybody hate Muslims. What is at stake is the $2 trillion in oil and gas money coming out of the Middle East every year.

    With such high stakes, Erdogan is now a high priority assassination target and we can expect a lot more trouble in the Middle East before the dust settles. However, if Turkey is working in tandem with Iran and mending fences with Russia and Egypt as well, they appear to have the strongest hand.
    Now let us take a look at what is happening in France. Here we have a wildly unpopular government staging fake terrorist attacks in order to extend martial law. The government is doing this because the Italian banking system is collapsing and will take the French banking system down with it. So, in order to distract the French people from the financial troubles they need to create a fake external enemy to unify the country around.

    Videos of the aftermath of the attack in Nice where a truck supposedly killed 84 people and injured another 200 appear to show a trail of real bodies (gathered up from hospitals around the country?). However, a friend working at the Japanese national broadcaster NHK’s news desk says NHK reported for about 4 hours that the truck in Nice was full of weapons and hand grenades. However, a CNN reporter on the scene reported the weapons were all fake, after which CNN, NHK and others dropped the “full of weapons” meme from their coverage. Then there is the fact the impoverished alleged killer sent $100,000 to his family before the incident.


    Also for some reason, the corporate media decided to completely ignore what looks like a spectacular attempt to blow up the Eiffel tower on the same day. Maybe there were too many witnesses to the fakery there so they decided to just pretend that little stunt never happened. A video of this incident has now been deleted from the net, but a photo can be seen here:

    http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index2072.htm
    No matter what though, the French fascist’s Gladio operations are not going to stop the revolution that is unfolding in that country.

    In any case, both the French and Turkish smoke and mirrors shows distracted from far more important events taking place in the Asia. We can confirm from our own CIA and Chinese sources what Neil Keenan has reported about UN Secretary General Bank Ki Moon and David Rockefeller going begging and not getting anything.

    http://neilkeenan.com/neil-keenan-update-china-shoves-keenan-pushes-to-put-an-end-to-un-nwo-ban-ki-moons-foolishness/

    We can also add new information about the Emperor of Japan’s announced resignation

    Ban Ki Moon was in Korea and China trying to find gold to keep the Rockefeller’s UN Corporation in business and to ask for the job of President of South Korea. He was told to buzz off. After that David Rockefeller phoned his “old family friend” Emperor Akihito and asked for gold. Akihito told Rockefeller that he was not allowed to do so. Immediately after this phone call took place, the government’s NHK news announced the Emperor, for health reasons, was going to be the first in 200 years to abdicate the throne. A Japanese government official who recently attended a ceremony presided over by the Emperor confirmed he made glaring mistakes during the ceremony and showed signs of senility. The source added that the emperor was exhausted by ongoing negotiations to set up a world government and wanted to pass the job on to his son and heir Naruhito.

    Having failed in China, Korea and Japan, The Rockefeller/Bush/Clinton faction of the Khazarian mafia is now going to make a big push to steal gold from Indonesia. CIA sources in Indonesia say that country is at its highest level of military alert as a result. The source adds that the Khazarians are trying to assassinate President Widodo and have offered the Suharto clan (friends of Henry Kissinger) power and wealth if they help overthrow Widodo and the Sukarno clan who support him. The Suharto’s have been told to back off or be killed.


    There has also been an attempt by the Khazarians to use tensions in the South China Sea to provoke World War 3 in order to keep themselves in business. The ruling passed against China’s claims in the South China Sea by a UN tribunal is being used to try to provoke a war between the US and China. Admiral Dennis C. Blair, former head of the US Pacific Command told the US Congress on July 13th the US should use force to stop China in the South China Sea. Blair now works for the National Bureau of Asian Research whose corporate sponsors include the Chevron Corporation, ConocoPhillips Company, Ernst&Young, the ExxonMobil Corporation, GE, Microsoft, etc. In other words he works for the Rockefellers.

    http://nbr.org/About/bod.aspx?id=d1ffb522-d222-48eb-913b-f83249c5fa63

    In any case, the horse trading between China and the US military industrial complex continues with the South China Sea issue being one of the US sides’ best bargaining chips. Following the ruling against China, US Secretary of State John Kerry went to Russia to lobby Vladimir Putin to work with the US against China in the SCS. The US is also approaching India, Vietnam, Japan etc. with this ruling in hand to try to seek help. The Chinese have counter-acted by courting the Europeans and others.


    A Chinese government official explained real reason China was taking a stubborn approach to the SCS issue is that the ocean around the submarine base they have on Hainan Island is too shallow for submarines to conceal themselves. That is why they are building submarine bases next to 2000 meter deep water in the South China Sea. The Chinese argue they need that to keep their nuclear deterrent intact and thus prevent anybody from miscalculating they could win a nuclear war against China with a pre-emptive strike.


    This South China Sea table thumping is probably going to end with the Chinese accepting a new US naval base on Indonesian Islands in the South China Sea and the Americans allowing the Chinese to build a submarine base located next to deep water.

    The Chinese also say they have no interest in using the bankruptcy of the US and Europe to try to impose Chinese hegemony. A top Chinese Red and Blue Society member described China, the US and Europe as like three legs of a table that needed each other to keep the table from falling over.

    The US military and agencies and China also have a common enemy in the Khazarian mafia. On this front the Russians and the Vatican are also in agreement. To force the Khazarian mafia to surrender, a missile strike is now being planned on the Rothschild family complex in Zug, Switzerland. For the sake of future generations, the Rothschilds have been given until July 25th to evacuate all the priceless art treasures they have there. After that, unless the Rothschilds surrender, that complex will be hit, Pentagon officials say.

    Other sources have also come forth to say the Rothshilds are only pretending to be separate from the Rockefeller/Bush/Clinton gang and should not be trusted to keep any deal unless they have no other choice. 


    Also, representatives of the White Dragon Society had meetings with several Asian factions to discuss the 1 ton gold bounty placed by the WDS on certain members of the Khazarian mafia. The WDS explained that the West was like a beautiful woman infected with syphilis and that the Asians need to make sure she takes anti-biotics before getting too friendly. The Asians agreed and confirmed gold and agents will be made available. Pentagon and agency sources responded to the bounties with requests for more names to be added. So, at Pentagon and agency request a one ton gold bounty will be placed on the people they mentioned:


    Jacob de Rothschild, Evelyn de Rothschild, Jay Rockefeller, George Soros, Dick Cheney, Paul Kagan, Henry Kissinger, Angela Merkel, Neil Bush, Jeb Bush, Marvin Bush, Michael Mukasey, Scooter Libby, 911 judge Alvin Hellerstein, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Dov Zakheim, Michael Chertoff, Frank Lowy, Larry Silverstein, Rudolf Giuliani, Michael Bloomberg, Paul Singer, Mark Zuckerberg, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Tony Blair, Haim Saban, Sheldon Adelson, Arnon Milchan, Hank Paulson, Bob Rubin, Sandy Weill (Citigroup) Lloyd Blankfein (Goldman Sachs), Jamie Dimon (JP Morgan) and Stanley Fischer.


    The bankrupt Clinton/Bush/Rockefller clan is now in such peril that it seems even God is against them. According to CNBC, Bill Clinton, George Bush Jr. and Tony Blair were chased out of a meeting in Arkansas by a tornado, which is most definitely the sort of incident referred to as an “act of God.”

    http://www.msnbc.com/way-too-early/watch/severe-weather-forces-bush-clinton-to-flee-725728835965

    The criminals listed above MUST SURRENDER.

    2016-07-18  BRICS bank issues first bond to fund green projects
    The New Development Bank (NDB) on Monday issued its first bonds worldwide to raise funds for clean energy projects in member states.

    The five-year green bonds, denominated in the Chinese currency renminbi or yuan, are worth 3 billion yuan (449 million U.S. dollars) and were sold in China's onshore interbank bond market.

    It was the first time in seven years that a global financial institution has issued the yuan-denominated bond in China.

    The bonds attracted investors from home and abroad. At its roadshow last Tuesday, more than 40 domestic and overseas institutional investors subscribed to the bonds.

    NDB president K.V. Kamath said the issuance was a milestone for the multilateral development bank. It may help boost sustainable development and serve as a signal of support for capital markets in BRICS countries, Kamath said.

    China's Yuan Dips Below Key 6.7/Dollar For First Time Since 2010
    July 18 2016
    ​State banks intervened earlier to support yuan at 6.6990/dlr
    * Yuan softens to weakest since Sept 2010
    * RMB has lost more than 3 pct against dollar so far this year (Adds details, quotes and context)

    SHANGHAI, July 18 (Reuters) - China's yuan slipped below the psychologically important level of 6.7 to the dollar for the first time in more than five years, after state bank support for the currency tapered off in late trade on Monday.

    "State banks were quite firm in defending the yuan at 6.6990 before the official close, but since they get off work after 4:30 pm the rates fluctuated more wildly and hit 6.7," said a trader at a Chinese commercial bank in Shanghai.

    "Whether the yuan will stay softer than 6.7 depends on the attitude of state banks tomorrow."
    The yuan settled at 6.6987 per dollar at 4:30 p.m. (0830 GMT). It dipped to 6.7003 at 4:50 p.m. and then softened to 6.7021, its weakest since September 2010, before clawing back some ground. On Friday, it closed at 6.6883.

    The People's Bank of China factors in the official closing level when it sets the next day's midpoint fixing, but the spot rate sometimes fluctuates widely until 11:30 p.m. when the evening session finally ends.
    The yuan has now lost more then 3 percent of its value against the dollar so far this year, despite the government reiterating that it wants the currency's value to remain relatively stable and that it will not use the yuan to boost trade competitiveness.

    "So I think the PBOC needs to clarify what kind of strategy or exchange rate path they're looking to see. It's an important psychological milestone and people will be wondering if there's anything behind it."
