Why Bankers that Use HFT Algorithms Literally Impede Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness (Connecting the Dots)

by JS Kim of SmartKnowledgeU

 

In Part 2 of my series about the wealth-destructive misanthropic power of banker controlled HFT algorithms, I will link the revelations in Part 1, “The One Revelation About HFT Programs That Truly Scares Bankers”, to the fact that bankers use HFT algorithms destroy everyone’s wealth, regardless if you invest in stock markets, gold and silver markets, real estate markets or F/X markets. In Part 1 of this series, some pointed out that the crimes bankers commit in suppressing gold and silver prices with illegal deception schemes they build into their HFT algos is small relative to the dollar numbers associated with the crimes they commit in stock markets. Even though daily trading volume on the NYSE has dropped precipitously from nearly 9.8 billion shares a day in 2009 to about 7 billion shares daily during the first month of 2014, about $30 to $40 billion of stocks still trade daily on the NYSE. In comparison, the average daily trading volume of gold futures contracts (February 2014) of 137,239 contracts that represented a notional amount of 137,239 * 100 ounces/contract * $1300.97/ounce = $17.8 billion, and the average daily trading volume of 78,887 silver futures contracts that represented a notional amount of 78,887 * 5000 ounces/contract * $20.83 an ounce = $8.2 billion. Add these two figures up, and the notional amount of gold and silver futures contracts traded equals $26 billion a day, about on par with the daily volume of the NYSE.

 

Because unscrupulous bankers have turned gold and silver futures markets into a fractional reserve gold and silver market in which they fraudulently trade hundreds of more paper ounces of gold and silver than are produced in the physical world every year, I argue that it is the notional daily trading volume of gold and silver futures contracts that truly matters, and not the actual contractual dollars that trade. Why? Because bankers use the notional amounts, and not the actual contractual amounts, represented by gold and silver futures contracts, to suppress gold and silver prices. For example, in this article I wrote in April, 2013, I illustrated how the banking cartel sold 6,000,000+ ounces of gold in less than half an hour, represented by 60,000 gold futures contracts to spark a sell-down in gold prices. The banking cartel likely did not even sell one physical ounce of gold to affect this rout on the price of gold and the 6,000,000 gold ounces they sold were notional and imaginary ounces of gold that the bankers never owned nor sold. However, it was the imaginary 6,000,000+ ounces of imaginary paper gold that was sold in less than half an hour that caused the price of gold to crater that day, not the amount of real gold that could have been purchased with the much less amounts of currency used to purchase those contracts. And just last week, on April 15, 2014, the bankers smashed gold by selling over a half a billion dollars notional of gold futures contracts in a very short amount of time. Allow me to present some quick mathematics for you. If we use the price of the prior day’s close of gold of $1,327.10 per troy ounce, a notional amount of $500M would represent 3,768 gold futures contracts that represent 11.72 tonnes of gold. However, since it only takes an initial margin of $7,150 to control a gold futures contract with a notional amount of $132,710, if the bankers were to buy REAL physical gold instead of fake paper futures gold with the money they used to buy those 3,768 futures contracts, considering they would have to likely pay at least a $30 per ounce premium over spot for real physical gold, they would have been able to purchase only 0.62 tonnes of physical gold to later dump onto the market, an event that clearly would not have had the same impact as dumping 11.72 tonnes of paper gold, or nearly 19 times as much paper gold. The bankers succeeded in knocking $44 off the price of gold by dumping 11.72 tonnes of paper gold, not by selling the 0.62 tonnes of real gold their contractual purchase price would have represented. Thus, this example should make it simple to understand why the notional dollar amounts, and not the infinitely smaller contractual dollar amounts, are the amounts that are key when bankers use HFT programs to smash gold and silver prices. Though many mainstream analysts dismiss notional amounts of the precious metals derivative markets and say that only the contractual values are important, they clearly are trying to cover up the banker fraud that is taking place in these markets. In gold and silver derivative contracts, the notional amounts mean EVERYTHING while the contractual dollar amounts mean almost NOTHING.

 

So now that I’ve established that the notional dollar daily trading volumes of gold and silver futures contracts (which in this case ARE the only values that matter when it comes to banker fraud) are on par with the dollar daily trading volumes of the entire NYSE, let me explain to you why the prices suppression of gold and silver prices carried out by the Western banking cartel (private central banks like the US Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, the ECB, the IMF, World Bank, BIS, and their subservient global commercial banks like JP MorganChase, DeutscheBank, ScottiaMocatta, Citigroup, etc.) hurts YOU severely whether or not you choose to participate in gold markets or silver markets. Furthermore, I will make it crystal clear that the overall negative wealth effect of banker-executed HFT gold and silver price-suppression schemes is exponentially greater than the negative wealth affect of banker-executed HFT trade skimming that has occurred in global stock markets.

 

Because I’ve established in Part 1 of this series, that bankers use HFT programs to deliberately set the price of gold and silver much lower than the prices of these precious metals would be in a free and fair market, they have been able to keep interest in real money (physical gold and physical silver) with zero counterparty risk low and maintain a monopoly on fiat currencies with extreme counterparty risk (see here and here).

 

For example, were gold at $3,000 an ounce and rising, and silver at $300 an ounce and rising today, all fiat currencies would be cratering today and people would cease valuing and choosing cotton over gold as wages for their labor today. Not only this, free market prices for gold and silver would expose all the fraud of the government-banker cartel. Because rising gold and silver prices awaken the masses to the crashing purchasing power of the US dollar, no longer could they claim that inflation is a ridiculous less than 2% in the US when beef prices have soared 34% in 6 years, pork prices have soared by 33% in 4 years, and orange juice prices have soared 33% in just the last 6 months(remember all markets are rigged so we have no idea what the free market prices for gold and silver truly are, other than that they are multiples higher than the current banker rigged prices). In addition, if gold and silver prices were freed from banker price suppression, no longer could bankers and politicians claim that the US stock markets 21% gain since mid-2007 was a sign of recovery because the US stock markets would probably resemble the 12-month 12,000% yield of the best yielding stock market index of 2007, the Zimbabwe industrial index. Of course the monthly inflation rate of 79.6 billion % by the following year in Zimbabwe rendered the trillions of Zimbabwe dollars of wealth gained by those in the Zimbabwe stock market useless. Gold and silver’s rise to anything near their free market prices would expose the sham that is the growth of the US stock market bubble built entirely upon the private banking cartel’s devaluation of the US dollar.

 

The bankers’ ability to keep people believing in their counterfeit fiat currencies is what creates over 1 billion food-insecure people in the world today, causes millions to lose their home, creates a vacuum in new job creation, and perpetuates the terrorism that springs forth from abject poverty. Everyone in the world would be a thousand times better off with monetary competition in this world and the ability to choose real money over counterfeit fiat currencies as their method to store value over time. And this is why the critical connection between HFT algorithmic trading and the bankers’ success in keeping gold and silver prices so undervalued today (versus their free market prices) is what literally puts the fear of God in bankers today. If bankers were deprived of their right to use HFT algorithms to suppress gold and silver prices as they did again just last week on April 15th, then everyone would wake up from their stupor, realize that the pot is already boiling, and jump up instead of cooking slowly to death. But as long as the Western banking cartel can suppress the price of real money – physical gold and physical silver – they will subject everyone to boiling frog syndrome and a slow, painful economic death. For those that believe that it is ridiculous to think that the US dollar will collapse, if you consider an 80% or greater, devaluation of an asset a collapse, I explain here that the US dollar has already collapsed. Furthermore, as I explained above, it is also literally why this connection severely impedes the right of every person in this world to pursue the inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

 

Remember that these are the 15 bankers that held a closed-door, secretive meeting with Barack Obama at the White House on 12 April, 2013 immediately prior to when they used HFT algos to slam the price of gold by more than $229 a troy ounce on two consecutive trading days on 12 April, 2013 and 15 April, 2013, so if you want answers, start with the men below and their highest executives responsible for their trading desks (or at least the ones that haven’t yet committed “suicide”):

The ONE Revelation about HFT Programs that Truly Scares Bankers (Hint: It’s About Gold & Silver)

April 7th, 2014

(please read Republishing Rights at the end of the article)

Last week, the big story was how bankers use HFT (High Frequency Trading) algorithmic software not only to rig markets but also to commit theft on a daily basis (Frontrunning, like Quantitative Easing, is just fancy Wall Street lingo to disguise its true meaning of theft).  Though many in the public blogosphere expressed shock that stock markets are rigged and that regulators like the Securities Exchange Commission willingly allow this theft to occur, the only thing shocking about this story was how long it took this story to reach the mainstream and that people were crediting Michael Lewis with uncovering this story with his book “Flash Boys” when in reality this story had been discussed in detail on independent financial media sites for more than five years already.

 

For example, an accounting professor at the Yale School of Management, X. Frank Zhang, calculated that HFT trading was responsible for a minimum of 70% of all daily trading volume in US stock markets and possibly for as much as 78% of the volume in 2009. And HFT algorithmic trading was already dominating daily trading volume on US stock exchanges prior to 2009.  Thus one can clearly see that the only thing “new” about HFT algorithms is that this old news has finally moved into mainstream media headlines.

How in the World We Came to Value Cotton More than Gold

March 31st, 2014

As we explained in our last video, one of the most polarizing techniques that prevents people from seeing truth is the herding of masses into “taking a side” that they will adopt for the rest of their life. Bankers have become masters of keeping people uneducated about truth through the use of these technique, even using their knowledge of history to deceive people. For example, bankers know of the Russian atrocities committed against Ukrainians under Khrushchev, and know that because of this history, that they can stir up anti-Russian sentiment very easily among Ukranians and sell the “an enemy of my enemy is my friend” meme. This is how global bankers have slithered into Ukraine and have now enslaved this current generation of Ukranians and all future generations as well with a now reported debt burden as potentially high as $27 billion. Given that the best way to seize control of a nation is through controlling a nation’s debt and credit, the motivation of bankers interceding in Ukraine should be self-evident. While past Russian atrocities committed against Ukranians are well documented, this does not mean that an enemy of one’s enemy is necessarily your friend. An enemy of your enemy may very well be masquerading as your friend but in reality be an even worse enemy than any prior enemies you may have had, as was certainly the case with the IMF’s role in Ukraine today.

If one takes a few minutes to really think about the medium that we accept as money today, fiat currencies made out of cotton fiber backed by nothing except militaries, murder, death, and threats of murder and death, then one should easily conclude that fiat currencies literally have no intrinsic worth. Then if one considers that nearly everyone chooses to hold his or her entire savings in these transformed cotton balls we call paper money (or worse yet, digital bytes stored on a bank’s computer), and such a decision implies that we value cotton more than gold (because conversion of cotton paper into physical gold and physical silver would imply that we value precious metals over cotton), we need to explore why we have not only adopted such a self-defeating mentality, but also why we choose to cling to such a false belief so strongly.

Especially after last year banker attacks on gold and silver price, today every decent dip in gold and silver prices is very likely to incite levels of fear among even the staunchest of believers in gold and silver. This, despite the likelihood that this year will yield very significant recovery in the prices of gold and silver assets. With this in mind, we tackle the question “How in the World We Came to Value Cotton More than Gold?” in our video below.

The Five Elements to Understanding the Truth About Everything

We thank you in advance for your cooperation).

Today we live in an age of universal deceit, and as 1984 author George Orwell stated, “In an age of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” I would amend that statement in regard to financial well-being to read, “In an age of universal deceit, not knowing the truth is a sure path to financial suicide”. Today, far too many people put all their faith in deceitful politicians and bankers to tell them the truth and consequently are dreadfully misinformed. Those that aren’t afraid of seeking out the truth will always be more successful in life than those that shun truth or are too afraid to confront the truth. The people in power in top government and banking positions ALL know the truth, so how can it be possibly be advantageous to us to know as little as possible about the breadth of knowledge that they possess? Yet, because the easiest path to take is the path of least resistance provided by the powers that be in their daily bread and circus act, this is exactly the path the majority of us unfortunately choose to take. It is the courageous ones that seek out the truth in the face of ridicule and the angry misinformed opposition of those ruled by emotions instead of facts that are the ones most likely to thrive in uncertain and increasingly risky economic times. One must take the time, if one is to survive these currency wars being enforced upon the world by global bankers, to understand the paradigms used to mislead us and then, learn how to parlay these disadvantages into our advantage. Learn to do this, and anyone can thrive even during disastrous economic times.

Here are three quick examples of the universal deceit of which I speak.

Patrick Rock, a close aid of UK Prime Minister David Cameron, of whom Cameron even stated “play[ed] an important role at Downing Street” was recently arrested on child-pornography related charges. What was Rock’s role at Downing Street? – ironically, to craft child porn prevention laws. In the political hemisphere, CNN reported headlines, “What can Obama do about Russia’s invasion of Crimea?” while other Western headlines blared “Ukraine says Russia sent 16,000 troops to Crimea.” These headlines run in direct opposition to the following facts:

In 1997, Russia & Ukraine signed a Partition Treaty that allowed the Russian Black Sea Fleet and up to 25,000 troops, 24 artillery systems with a caliber smaller than 100mm, 132 armored vehicles, and 22 military planes to remain in Crimea until 2017. This agreement was extended in 2010 until 2042.

Thus, any journalist that reports that Russia has invaded Ukraine with 16,000 troops is simply peddling propaganda and serving the same role as Patrick Rock, executing the exact opposite of what their pledged profession demands. Despite what opinions you may have regarding the Russia and US/EU/IMF conflict in Ukraine, to state that Russia has invaded Ukraine is as misleading as running a headline today stating that the US has just invaded Japan with 25,000 troops although the US is allowed 25,000 troops to occupy 14 separate military installations in Okinawa, Japan at the present time. Again, whether or not you agree with the presence of US troops in Okinawa is a completely different topic, as many Okinawans called for the departure of all US troops after 3 US military servicemen infamously raped a 12-year old Japanese girl repeatedly and left her for dead in 1995. However, as the agreements stand now, it would be just as misleading to call the 25,000 US troops present in Okinawa “an invasion of Japan” as it is to call the presence of Russian troops in Ukraine an “invasion of Ukraine”.

But today, politicians and bankers often say “to hell with the truth” in pursuit of their misanthropic agendas. After all, war is the ultimate racket that distracts people from the truth of a degrading global economic situation. In the US, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen has been very vocally lauding the decline in US unemployment to 6.7% as she testified before US Congress in these exact words: “The unemployment rate has fallen nearly a percentage point since the middle of last year and 1-1/2 percentage points since the beginning of the current asset purchase program.” However, here is the truth about unemployment in the United States. There are about 243 million Americans of working age. At the beginning of 2014, there were 102.2 million Americans of working age that were not working. Does 102.2 divided by 243 yield an unemployment rate of 6.7%? Of course the unemployment rate depends upon the methodology used to calculate the unemployed, but dividing the number of out-of-job Americans by the number of Americans of working age seems like a fair way to derive this rate to me. And why does Martha Stewart go to jail for perjury for 5 months with an additional 2 years of supervision after her jail release, while the Chairwoman of the largest private bank in the United States can lie to US Congress with impunity? (Remember, Martha Stewart went to jail for lying to Federal Prosecutors and NOT for inside trading as many still wrongly believe.)

At the end of the day, only those that have the balance, the calmness and the wisdom to not be misled by their emotions and to see the truth will survive these currency wars. There are bound to be those that are blinded by their emotional allegiance to one of the above topics and therefore let their emotional allegiances cloud and obscure their judgment of simple facts. For those willing to tackle the truth head on, many of these people are not deterred or afraid of how gloomy this truth may be, and instead, knowledge of this truth only increases their resolve to take the necessary action right now. For this group, their future will be markedly more optimistic than those that continue to avoid the truth for reasons as varied as “taking the buried head in the sand approach” to “ignorance as a means to avoid the guilt of being part of the problem”. Those that have the courage to act upon the truth will flourish as these currency wars escalate while the rest will suffer great sorrows as a consequence of either their refusal to process the truth when presented with the truth or their fear of confronting truth. While the means of escapism are endless today, I tend to believe that the majority of people in the world know that their governments and bankers are lying to them about the “recovering economy” meme. Most know from direct experience or the witnessed suffering of family and friends that this meme is but a huge lie. However, equally crippling to their financial future is the inability to act in confronting this reality. Most do nothing and just hope that miraculously the economy will recover and things will get better, instead of learning as much as they can right now about what they must do to position themselves to flourish as the global economy worsens over the next few years.

Most continue to believe the commercial bankers’ lies about diversity being the key to wealth preservation and concentration being risky, even though a $1,000,000 investment in our Crisis Investment Opportunities portfolio since our launch in June, 2007 has outperformed a $1,000,000 investment in the diversified S&P 500 index by a whopping $597,258, despite the S&P 500’s phenomenal 29.6% yield and gold and silver’s woeful yields of -29% and -37% last year (a nearly $600,000 of additional yield in a tax-deferred account on an initial $1MM investment in our concentrated SmartKnowledgeU portfolio over the diversification approach). So much for diversification being the wise strategy over an extended period of time (6-1/2 years). Sure as we just stated, last year was a terrible year for gold and silver investors. That is a fact. However, a more important fact is that those that get caught up in the minutiae of these global currency wars and that are unable to piece together the big picture are those that are eternally and easily distracted from realizing the truth by the one-year schemes conjured up by the very politicians and bankers they detest. Those that have the courage to tackle what will undoubtedly become even leaner economic times in future years around the world right now, as I urged people to do at the end of last year (All the Big Banks are Saying that Gold Will Crash in 2014, But That’s Not What Will Happen), and to learn about the truth right now, will be the only ones that flourish. Consider one of the many SmartKnowledgeU Memberships today to help you understand the truth about what is going on today and to provide you with guidance on how to best positions your assets for growth during very limited but yet, outstanding opportunities. These windows of opportunity in 2014 will be very limited in our opinion, and require immediate quick decisions and aggressive action to position yourself correctly for future years.

Below, I present to you “The Five Elements to Understanding Truth About Everything”.  In this video, I have come up with five key elements of human nature that one must understand if one desires to really understand the truth about anything. I speak about each of these separate five elements at length. Please seek out this video on YouTube and read the provided video description on YouTube to gleam the most benefit from this video.

Why Bankers Want Control of Ukraine

March 5th, 2014

We all know about the important military consequences of controlling Ukraine to the US and Russia, but an equally important and overlooked topic is why bankers want control of Ukraine’s monetary supply and ultimately control of Ukraine through controlling its debt (the proposed $1 billion loan from the IMF). All major Western military invasions in the past several years – Somalia, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and attempts in Syria – involved countries in which the Bank for International Settlements had not yet gained control of the monetary supply at the time of these invasions.

The international banking cartels represented by the World Bank, the IMF and the Bank for International Settlements are unhappy with their low level of influence in controlling the debt of emerging economic powers like China and Russia and know that they very well can’t directly declare war on Russia and China to effect regime change in order to obtain control of their debt as they accomplished with the aforementioned much smaller countries that didn’t have the military strength to withstand a US/EU/banking led invasion. However, these global banking cartels know that they can gain influence through regime change without direct military intervention in the 15 newly independent states of the former USSR a la John Perkin’s Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (or at least this was their first initial thought in Ukraine). Below, JS Kim of SmartKnowledgeU discusses the above neglected topic and the gravity of the growing military escalation in Ukraine at the current time.

 

Studying Gold and Silver’s Past Gives Us a Glimpse of Where We’re Heading in the Future

March 3rd, 2014

The banking-government industrial complex has been pulling the wool over investors’ eyes for years when it comes to getting the masses to keep their savings tied up in ever rapidly devaluing fiat currencies instead of intelligently converting them into the only real money out there – physical gold and physical silver – that has no counterparty risk. Just note the massive 50% collapse of the Argentine peso in less than 5 years, the 40% collapse of the Venezuelan bolivar in one year, and the Ukranian hryvania’s collapse of more than 50% against gold just this year, and the fact that Ukranian banks are now limiting withdrawals to about $100 a day now. Hard as it is to believe, and by now most people have forgotten this fact, but back in 2006, the bankers tried their hardest to sell the world on the notion that the gold bull was dead when gold had climbed to just $620 an ounce. Bankers attempted to misinform people by releasing a flood of anti-gold articles and banker predictions that gold had peaked and that it was going to crash to $250 to $300 an ounce later that year.

In reply to this banker disinformation campaign in 2006, I released a number of emphatic opinions that all the anti-gold propaganda was just that – propaganda – and I even called out the head commodity analysts at some global banks as I waged war against their disinformation campaigns. I believe we can learn a lot about the future of gold and silver today by taking a step back in time to re-visit the bankers’ propaganda campaigns in 2006.

The Banker Purge Continues: Global Banking System Now Operating at DEFCON1

February 21st, 2014

This past week, another JP Morgan banker jumped to his death from a JP Morgan banking office in Hong Kong. With the bodies piling up, we connect the dots in the below video between the mysterious sudden epidemic of high level global bankers committing “suicide” and their achievement of Herculean feats of profit. Ironically (or perhaps with deliberation), two high level JP Morgan bankers responsible for the oversight and integration of JP Morgan’s trading platform committed suicide right before JP Morgan reported a Jesus-like miracle feat of a perfect trading record of profits on every single day of equities trading in 2013, a mathematically impossible feat without the utilization of a criminal and manipulative proprietary trading software platform. Even of greater revelation is that CEO Jamie Dimon felt zero need to instruct his traders to deliberately lose money on several random days in 2013 to reduce the appearance of impropriety. Mr. Dimon’s arrogance in flaunting a perfect trading record in 2013 without experiencing A SINGLE DAY OF LOSSES further serves as a huge indictment of the criminality of US stock market regulators and lawmakers. Perhaps this is the reason why the two JPM bankers that could best prove criminal behavior behind JP Morgan’s perfect, miracle trading record in 2013 are now dead.

Connect the Dots: The Power of the Lone Dissenter to Produce Positive Change

February 7th, 2014

Today there are literally hundreds of millions of people protesting their economic situations in dozens of countries in every single region of the world. While these protests are valid, and government corruption is the equilibrium state for all governments worldwide, the missing component is the ability of protesters to connect the dots and determine the underlying common denominator in the terrible economic state worldwide that has resulted in the middle class being decimated in the US and the horrific 15% suicide rates among all deaths in the 25 to 34 year old demographic in Spain.

Below we talk about the power of the lone dissenter to connect the dots of global economic disenfranchisement for billions of people worldwide, and why the silence of good people working for morally bankrupt industries is just as powerful an enabler of economic destruction as is the courage of a lone dissenter to re-focus and re-shape protests and revolutions on only the most pertinent and salient of issues.

A Mission to Mars Illustrates a Coming US Dollar Collapse

January 30th, 2014

“The last duty of a central banker is to tell the public the truth” – US Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Alan Blinder, 1994

 

By now, everyone knows that bankers lie…all the time. They tell one group of clients to sell an asset while secretly telling another group of clients to buy the same asset. They tell other clients to buy assets and then short that very asset behind their clients’ backs. They tell the world they don’t engage in any type of gold swaps nor do they rehypothecate gold, but yet when Germany asks for its 300 tonnes back from the US Central Bank, they respond by telling Germany that they have it all but only return 5 tonnes in the whole of 2013. Five tonnes represents 0.06% of the alleged gold the US Central Bank claims is in deep storage somewhere in the United States.

 

Yesterday the US Central Bank said that they are cutting their purchases of US Treasuries yet again from $75B a month to $65B a month. But as I stated yesterday in our weekly newsletter sent to thousands before the FOMC announcement, “I do not care if the US Central Bank’s FOMC lies later today when they announce policy and if they state they are going to taper QE more just to knock down gold and silver prices again in the short-term, because the REALITY is not only can they not maintain such a policy other than for the very short-term, but that they will eventually need to INCREASE QE just to prevent disaster and all the huge bubbles they have created all over the world from popping.”

 

In today’s world, it simply doesn’t matter what any of the bankers say because the only thing we know to be true is that their words are never to be trusted. The only thing that matters is what bankers are actually doing behind closed doors after spouting propaganda lies to the public. Below, we use a mission to Mars to clearly illustrate the insanity of Central Bank-speak.

Whether we will admit it or not, a lot of us engage in gang member-like thinking that destroys our ability to divergently think, critically think and even consider the truth when the truth challenges the group-think of the “gang”.

Ishmael Cisneros, a member of the notorious global crime syndicate, the Mara Salvatrucha, better known as MS-13, says that once you join a gang, “your mind closes off to the rest of the world and you’re capable of doing anything for the gang…don’t get caught up in the world of gangs, especially for those that think there’s something good in it. It’s all lies.”

Yet many of us that deny we ever engage in the vapid and counter-productive gang mentality that Cisneros describes above unintentionally allow ourselves to be bound by this gang mentality by TPTB that deliberately shuttle people into adopting gang mentality through divide and conquer tactics based upon religious, political, and racial affiliations.

If we are truly honest with ourselves, we will all admit to having engaged in “gang-think” at one point in our lives, and perhaps of still engaging in these counter-productive thought patterns today. It’s time to deconstruct this type of mentality so that we can awaken to the truth and always choose what is best for the greater good of humanity over what is best for our gang only as we move forward. Separating ourselves from gang think will be essential for not only survival but also for a positive mental health state in coming years as Central Banks keep destroying the purchasing power of fiat currencies and people’s struggles all over the world consequently intensify.

 

Is Germany’s Gold Housed in New York, Paris and London All Gone?

Below is a recent correspondence from our friend Lars Schall, an independent financial journalist, and the German Central Bank, the Deutsche Bundesbank, regarding the exact whereabouts and specifications of Germany’s national gold reserve. From the correspondence below, it appears that the US Central Bank had already leased out Germany’s gold reserves in prior years and no longer has it, as the gold bars the US Central Bankers returned to Germany last year were clearly not the same ones that Germany originally deposited with them. The questions Mr. Schall’s revelations now beg is (1) if the Banque de France and the Bank of England have Germany’s original gold as well; and (2) if the various Central Bankers are deliberately returning Germany’s gold on a painfully slow timeline because they have already leased out Germany’s gold into the open market in prior years, no longer hold it, and must therefore scrape together Germany’s gold from the open market now.
