Here are the larger versions of the charts from our video of the same subject to be posted later today on our SmartKnowledgeU Video channel. We’re having some technical difficulties with the upload today but hopefully we can resolve these problems and get the video posted about how bankers stopped a US stock markets crash on 8 July 2015 later today. In any event, the short message of our video is that only the most naive of the naive would believe the “official” banker explanation that a system upgrade caused the NYSE to be shut down for more than 4 hours on 8 July 2015  and that bankers intervened specifically to prevent a US stock markets crash and rout that was developing that day even before markets opened in NY that day, and certainly was well on its way, by 11:30 AM NY time. Just search for our video on YouTube under the SmartKnowledgeU channel for the accompanying commentary and more detailed explanation of the below graphs. In the end, all of the bankers’ meddling, interference, and manipulation of US stock markets will come home to roost and the emperor will be revealed to have no clothes in the near future, so buyer beware.

What Really Caused the NYSE Shut Down For Nearly Four Hours on July 8th?

July 22nd, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

It appears that after yesterday’s market action, Apple (AAPL) shares will suffer the “sell the news” syndrome and that Microsoft (MSFT) shares will also suffer the same “sell the news” fate to their before market open announcement of a record quarterly net loss today. Still, despite the facts, the US mainstream news (CNBC) somehow was still able to conjure up the disinformation grease to spin MSFT’s record quarterly net LOSS into a positive disinformation headlines touting that MSFT’s earnings “topped analysts’ expectations”. Ironically, CNBC produced this disinformation headline about MSFT’s record quarterly loss just two days after it urged investors to “ignore [the coming] MSFT earnings and [to] buy the stock.” Well, which one is it, propagandist CNBC news? Is it “ignore MSFT earnings and buy the stock!” as you touted two days ago, and if so, then are we to ignore your story today that MSFT earnings “topped analysts’ expectations” and believe the truth that they really reported record quarterly net losses? Just follow the headlines from the same mainstream financial news source for more than a few days, and their own headline writers will trip over their own lies.

 

Even more importantly was the intraday selling behavior that surrounded AAPL, MSFT and other top components of the US S&P 500 on the day the NYSE shut down for nearly four hours on 8 July 2015. We are in the process of filming a short vlog in which we will show you why Central Bankers, and not a technical glitch from a systems update, likely decided to trigger a panic button and a NYSE shut down to prevent a full-blown US stock market crash from starting on July 8th. Subscribe to our SmartKnowledgeU YouTube channel here and be among the first people to receive our notification of when we release our vlog explaining the REAL reason why the NYSE shut down for nearly four hours earlier this month.

Gold and Silver Are Crashing. What’s Next?

July 22nd, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

In our last newsletter (our free newsletter that you can sign up for by visiting SmartKnowledgeU ), I stated, “we’ve been sitting in cash for large chunks of time this year and strategically entering and exiting short positions in paper gold and in paper silver occasionally” and I followed this statement up with a strong warning, right here, against any “excitement and anticipation that gold and silver would ‘pop’ on the Greek No vote, [even] as the HUI gold bugs index rose +2.2%.” To be crystal clear no one would miss my bearish stance towards gold and silver in the intermediate term, and so there would be absolutely no misunderstanding to follow a circulating internet story that a silver short squeeze may be developing, I went the further step of stating, “there [will] probably be further gold and silver weakness this month”, and indeed we have since received further gold and silver weakness this month.

 

However, for two months now, we’ve been repeating the same message for all new subscribers that may have missed our earlier messages [though all our old free newsletters are accessible in our archived newsletters online]. As far back as 5 June 2015, I stated, “to deal with the downward volatility in the meantime, the key is to exit before bankers execute the significant raids that push gold and silver prices significantly lower [such as the one that happened today], and to additionally assume hedges against falling gold and silver prices to provide counterbalance. Throw in a massive dose of patience into this mix, and when gold and silver prices eventually turn up, and they will do so with a surprising vengeance that will catch most everyone off guard when this event eventually transpires, and one will be ready to execute a solid strategy to survive the coming fractures of the coming global banking and financial system.”

 

Today, in low volume trading , immediately prior to the Chinese metals markets opening, Western bankers dumped another $2.7 billion notional in gold futures contracts to the market that initially took gold down by more than -4.0% although it has now recovered to “just” -1.62% and silver has recovered quite a but as well, down only -0.24% right now after being down well over -1.5% earlier in the day. We will have to see if these recoveries hold up once New York markets open up, however. In fact, gold and silver were taken down so much in spot price earlier today that they almost hit the bottom targets we provided to our paying subscribers earlier this month as we continued to warn that gold and silver prices were heading lower this month.

 

If you look at the graph below, you will see that there have only been two times that we have been long gold and silver miners this ENTIRE YEAR, and both were brief periods in which we were in and out of the mining stocks in less than a month each time. I have circled in red on the HUI gold bugs index, the only two periods this ENTIRE YEAR in which we have been invested in gold and silver mining stocks in our two subscription services, the Crisis Investment Opportunities newsletter and the Platinum Membership.

huiL

Interestingly enough, as we just completed our mid-year reports for our Platinum Members, in which I provide all my favorite junior mining stocks, during these two periods of time, from December 19 to January 21, and from March 27 to April 23, the junior and intermediate miners’ performance far exceeded the performance of the major gold and silver miners we hold in our CIO newsletter portfolio during these two periods, as below is the performance of every single one of the 23 gold and silver stocks that I marked as one of my favorites for my Platinum Members in 2015. To summarize our first half performance of our Platinum portfolio, during a time period when junior mining stocks were flat as a sector, and the HUI gold mining index lost -6.8%, here were the returns of every one of the 23 gold and silver mining stocks I marked as my “favorite” stocks in our Platinum portfolio thus far year-to-date (though I include about 35-40 mining stocks in the Platinum portfolio every year, I only marked 23 as my “favorite” picks this year):


+15.8%, +18.1%, +121.0%, +64.9%, +12.9%, +15.2%, +35.1%,
-1.3%, -15.7%, +26.3%, +46.4%, +24.7%, +75.6%, +5.8%, +53.3%, +17.8%, -3.6%, +40.3%, +13.4%, -3.3%, +32.4%, +60.1%, & +3.6%

 

(Returns were calculated simply by taking the opening market day price in Canada and New York of the days I issued special alerts to our Platinum members to buy and sell the mining stocks, unless I provided a specific buy and sell price for the stocks, as was the case for a handful of my favorite stocks during the first half of 2015. For the stocks we bought and sold twice this year during the limited time periods we invested cash this year, the above returns were calculated by our normal strategy of reinvesting the cash proceeds of the first sale into the second purchase and sale).

 

Consequently, for every $10,000 invested in each of our favorite major and intermediate stock picks and for every $5,000 invested in each our favorite junior miners from our Annual 2015 Platinum Stock & Asset guide, every $155,000 invested into every one of our favorite stocks yielded $204,025, or a +31.6% gain in H1 2015. What is absolutely crazy about the above returns is the furious nature of all of those returns, as they all came within just a 7 to 8-week period of time. What is even crazier is the fact that had we not sold the above gold and silver stocks when we did, all those positive returns above would now all be losses, and some even would be very significant losses, as gold and silver stocks, as an asset class, are all sitting on significant losses for the year now. For example, Silver Wheaton, a flagship silver company, has lost -43.2% from its high of $24.10 a share in early January, and Kinross Gold, a flagship gold company, has plummeted -48.8% from its highs in early January.

 

Our above junior mining stock performance of our Platinum Membership portfolio illustrates the necessity of staying completely out of the gold and silver mining stocks during a downtrend with cash ready to be deployed after gold and silver mining stocks have bottomed. However, when gold and silver mining stocks finally bottom in this latest banker gold and silver raid, the best returns from the mining stocks of the entire year will almost certainly come from our third entry into the mining stocks this year. In fact, just as we referenced the accuracy of two statements from our earlier free newsletters in this one, we will likely be referencing the very previous sentence for its accuracy in a future newsletter.

 

And this time around, the major gold and silver mining stocks we hold in our CIO newsletter portfolio should also massively benefit from the next upleg in gold and silver stocks along with the junior mining stocks. Thus, as we’ve stressed all year long, patience has been the key in the gold and silver markets this year as they have relentlessly been attacked by bankers this year. But do not worry, this attack will not last that much longer, though this sentence will likely be very hard to believe by those that have not been following the guidance of this newsletter that has been warning of lower gold and silver prices for months on end now. Many of you have inquired as to what are the differences between the information contained in this free newsletter and the information we provide in our subscription services. The differences are enormous and we explain in great detail what these enormous differences are in the fact sheets that can be downloaded on our homepage at smartknowledgeu.com
Though we’ve been bearish on gold and silver the entire year, as we’ve only been invested in gold and silver mining stocks for barely more than 40 trading days during the entire year-to-date , we may very well be approaching the point when our view is going to switch from bearish to bullish for the first time in many months. For those that have been holding a lot of physical gold and physical silver, don’t let this latest Western banker raid against spot paper prices of gold and silver shake you out of your positions. And don’t misinterpret our near-ending intermediate bearish stance on gold and silver as a change in our long-term stance on physical gold and physical silver. Our long-term stance on physical gold and physical silver is still bullish, and soon may be as bullish as it’s been in fifteen years.

 

Back in the days when everyone, versus just a miniscule percent of people, understood what banker JP Morgan meant when he stated, Money is gold. Nothing else, people only cared about how many ounces of gold they had, and not how many fraudulent pieces of paper their ounce of gold represented. Many people today understand that holding their life’s savings in rapidly devaluing fiat paper and plastic currencies is a foolish decision, yet many of these same people inexplicably and wrongly value their physical gold and physical silver in terms of these rapidly devaluing paper and plastic currencies.

 

It will not be too much longer before everyone realizes that valuing gold in terms of fiat currencies is the wrong method of valuation, and the correct methodology for valuing physical gold and physical silver will become self-evident in the not-so-distant future.

 

As I stated in the last free newsletter, “At this point, we are [still] just waiting for our comfort level to grow with the risk-reward setup for gold and silver mining stocks, at which point we will go long again.” Again to subscribe to our free newsletter, merely visit our homepage at smartknowledgeu.com.

Below, please find a special weekend emergency podcast regarding the July 5th Greek Referendum as we explain why this vote is a vote for short-term pain now and future freedom versus short-term relief now and future and continued banker enslavement for all Greek citizens. Though this is an emergency for all Greek citizens, as the implications of this vote, whether yes or no, will illustrate to us the banker blueprint for what they plan to execute in ALL nations worldwide in coming years, we are all Greek today and we should all care very deeply about the outcome of this referendum.

MSM Lies v. Independent Media Truth

July 2nd, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

They say a picture tells a thousand words, so here’s a couple of photos in the MSM disinformation war against we the people to brainwash us into submission with utter MSM lies versus the truth that can only be found in independent media these days. I’ve often said that when it comes to mainstream financial advisers, do the EXACT opposite of what they publicly state if you want to survive the coming financial armageddon. If your response is “yeah right, a financial armageddon!” then my advice is stop watching the MSM and plug in to the independent media to source your news. May I remind you that these were the exact same responses I received to my 2008 article, “Will US Markets Crash Now or Later?” when I predicted a US market crash in 2008 just 18 trading days before the crash began.

Don’t Be Faked Out By the Stock Market Head Fakes

June 16th, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

In our last newsletter, I warned of the following: “The fact that the US stock markets gave up all of its gains and actually closed lower on the day by market close should clearly signal to all of us not only the massive banker interference that is occurring in US stock markets on a daily basis, but the fragility of US stock markets that this daily interference has created.” Since then, we had a “head fake” at the end of last week in US stock markets when TPTB went to work and pumped US stock markets significantly higher, but in the past two days, all of these gains have since been lost.

 

In the chart of the Greek stock market above, the Greek stock market surged a massive +8% , with 7% of the surge happening in one day after the MSM (mainstream media) did what it does best – lie and falsely report that the Greek government had agreed to impose more austerity measures upon Greek citizens to bailout the bankers. Of course, as soon as it was revealed that the MSM was lying, as usual, the Greek stock market immediately plummeted by -12%. And this is the nature of the head fakes we are going to see in stock markets, real estate markets, forex markets, and commodity markets as long as the MSM is intent on being a propaganda tool for banker lies. At the current time, the most pressing situation for the Greek government is a 1.6 billion euro debt payment due to IMF bankers at the end of this month, which they cannot make right now.

Here’s What We Said to Expect from US Payroll Numbers, Silver and Gold Markets Yesterday, and Here’s What Happened

June 6th, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

Below is the issue of the free newsletter that we released yesterday. To subscribe and receive our newsletters on a timely basis, visit us and sign up at our homepage at www.smartknowledgeu.com.

 

What can we expect from the release of the US non-farm payrolls that will occur today in about 3.5 hours? Before I discuss this number, let’s review the past couple weeks in gold and silver prices to set up this discussion. In mid-May, many silver analysts were pushing a 4-year technical breakout as a “hugely significant” event that, in their words, was likely to fuel short-covering and momentum buyers that could lead to an extremely significant move to the upside in silver that would quickly challenge the $20 to $25 an ounce levels. However, at SmartKnowledgeU, we took a contrarian view at that time, because our proprietary analysis informed us of a picture beneath the surface that was significantly different than the one the 4-year technical breakout was painting. In fact, we’ve discussed this many times here over the past 8 years as a banker deception practice of “painting the charts.”

On 20 May 2015, I sent our clients a bulletin that, unlike the popular narrative about precious metals at the current time, stated “I still think that there is significant danger of further downside in gold and silver in the short-term so we’re going to assume some hedges at this time.”  I reinforced this private notice to our clients with a small tidbit on our public SmartknowledgeU blog forum in an entry titled Evidence of Runaway Inflation: Would You Pay $82MM for This?  on May 25th. There, I stated, “The continuing fracture of the fraudulent global banking system will manifest itself in imminent severe attacks on spot gold and spot silver prices, and when these attacks occur, this will again be a huge omen to the awake of the massive fragility of the entire global banking system.” Read the rest of this entry »

SmartKnowledgeU Podcast #10: Free Your Mind

June 1st, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

Welcome to SmartKnowledgeU Podcast #10, Free Your Mind. For many of us, almost every single belief we hold about religion, politics, financial markets, war, law, morality was fed to us by another human being, and not something that we arrived upon from our own path of critical thought. This is not only an extremely dangerous methodology to form our belief systems, but an inherently flawed one that leaves every one of us open to being unduly influenced into believing false propositions as truths.  It has been said that the ignorance or denial of facts does not make the facts any less true. This happens with a startling level of frequency in the world of economics and finance and in discussions about financial markets, when State “official” statistics that are obviously manufactured lies to anyone that performs a simple analysis of how these statistics are derived are routinely accepted and reported by MSM (MainStream Media) analysts as “truth.” In reality, any economist or analyst that discusses State sponsored economic job growth, unemployment, GDP, housing start statistics in support of their “analysis” should be immediately discredited and embarrassed for doing so. And anyone that points out the fragility of the global banking system, US stock market, SE Asian real estate markets, yet still discusses these State-sponsored statistics as if they are credible should be immediately recognized as a disinformation agent that uses the common disinformation tactic of mixing lies with truth to gain credibility among the public masses.

 

In today’s podcast, Free Your Mind, JS Kim, the Managing Director of SmartKnowledgeU, discusses the absurdity of the US iron-fisted means of handling FIFA fraud v. the kid glove means of handling banking fraud that is a thousand times worse, the dichotomy of the legal system that imprisons Martha Stewart for perjury but praises the perjury of Fed Reserve Chairmans Bernanke and Yellen’s narrative of “maximum employment” and “price stability”, and the absurdity of banking CEOs Jamie Dimon and Stuart Gulliver’s statements that their firm’s massive criminal behavior is isolated to a few “rogue bankers” even as Barclays traders acknowledge the systemic banking culture of thievery with declarations in trading chat rooms of “if you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying”! We further discuss how the “obey and do as your told” meme of the financial world has bled into the music, consumerism, and entertainment worlds as well, and the steps we can take to ensure that we fall into the category of the “awakened” versus the category of the “still asleep.” So grab a cup of coffee, enjoy today’s podcast and free your mind.

Here’s Why Nothing in the MSM Financial News is Believable Today

May 25th, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

There is literally nothing in the MSM financial news that is believable or trustworthy today. It doesn’t matter if you live in Russia, America, South Africa, England, Ireland, Argentina, Brazil, China, Hungary, Germany, Poland, Colombia, Panama, Canada, Hong Kong or any other city. Every government lies atrociously about key economic statistics in their country. In reality, it is the bankers that are lying because these statistics are fed to government official puppets by bankers.

 

For example, one only needs to look at the most recent US government “official” GDP (gross domestic product) number to understand beyond a shadow of a doubt that this number is a complete lie. To begin, most people don’t even know that every single “official” government economic statistic is an estimate that is later “adjusted”. But event the first reported “estimated” numbers are rarely honest, and merely reverse engineered to fit the banker narrative. If the bankers need to report a “robust, strong” or “recovering” economy, they literally pull the estimated figures out of a hat to fit the false narrative they want to trick the extremely naive into believing. For example, in 2008, when bankers decided that $700 billion was an adequate size to give to bankers at near zero-interest rates to bail out their excessive fraud and gluttony for the prior decade, when US Treasury Secretary and former Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson was asked how the $700 billion figure was derived when the mathematics of the final figure appeared to be much less than what would eventually be necessary (as proved to be the case as $17 trillion was handed out by Federal Reserve bankers soon after to bail out banks throughout the world), a US Treasury spokeswoman answering on behalf of Paulson stated, “It’s not based upon any particular data point. We just wanted to choose a really large number.”

 

Wait a second. What? Did a US Treasury Department official really admit, by stating the $700 billion banker bailout figure was NOT BASED UPON ANY PARTICULAR DATA POINT, that they literally pulled that figure out of a hat back in 2008? Yes, she did. And furthermore, by stating that they “just wanted to choose a really large number”, she further admitted that the whole point of that bailout was to fool the foolish and naïve into believing that this bailout would be adequate to affect an economic “recovery”. Obviously, for anyone that has been awake for the last 7 years, it is crystal clear that Central Bankers have created another impending massive financial crisis that will far exceed the panic of 2008.

 

But back to our point. Recently the bankers, through their government employee puppets at the BEA (Bureau of Economic Analysis Adjustment) adjusted Q1 GDP in the US from a negative 1.0% to a positive 1.8%, a whopping positive 2.8% upward adjustment. How did they do this? Well, bankers “adjust” all key economic indicators for “seasonality variations” to even out the volatility that may occur throughout the year. For example, often growth in the first and second quarters will exceed growth in the fourth quarter because Christmas and end-of-the year holidays in Q4 means that many workers will be taking holidays and vacations, productivity will fall, and GDP will consequently fall. To “even” this seasonality variance out, the bankers may adjust the true Q4 numbers higher. All these adjustments that the Bureau of Economic Adjustments undertakes never made sense to me in the first place. Just report the real numbers every quarter. Seems pretty simple to me. But they never do. They report estimated figures, and then update them for their adjustments. So because the Q1 GDP figures for the US were cratering, the BEA adjusted them higher. And when even the upward adjusted figures were shockingly weak, the BEA decided to double adjust them higher. That’s correct, that is not a misprint. When the original Q1 GDP print was so weak in the US, the BEA adjusted this figure not once, but they doubled the upward adjustment sot they could tell the US public that Q1 GDP was a respectable (but still very weak), positive 1.8%.

 

Below you will see the massive difference between non-seasonally “fabricated” GDP numbers and seasonally “fabricated numbers” and the comically titled “Changes to real GDP growth by quarter from a second seasonal adjustment in the second chart.
fakevrealgdp

doubleadjustedgdp

Recall that I drew both of these charts from the website of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (the branch that used to employ current Fed Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen). Recall in the above chart that ther REAL Q1 GDP print in the US was -1.0%, and then after an initial upward adjustment, bankers raised this number to +0.2%. But then they said, “Wait, this number is not good enough to hold up the fraud we’ve been creating in massively distorted higher US stock prices, so we must adjust the number upwards a second time.” So then, the second adjustment higher brought the final “real” GDP to a positive 1.8%. Again, recall our SmartKnowledgeU Podcast #6 called the Language of Lies in which I discuss in great detail how bankers have perverted language to such a degree that they call fake statistics “real” and the real statistics “fake”. And guess what? The BEA is not just applying this fake double adjustment to Q1 2015 data. They announced that they are incredibly going to retroactively apply this fake adjustment to all data from 2012, 2013, and 2014 as well, so all these numbers can look doubly improved as well. You see, the economy is just fine when we adjust the numbers “properly”! And you can bet if any key economic indicator comes in too high or too low to serve the bankers’ false narratives moving forward, that they will just triple adjust, or even quintuple adjust the numbers if necessary. By now, it should be crystal clear that bankers just pull all “official” economic statistic numbers out of a hat, just as they did with the 2008 banker bailout number, to fit whatever false narrative they are trying to sell to the masses. Wow, if only professors taught these statistical methodologies in MBA program Statistics 101 classes  around the world, think of how a statistics class might instantaneously be transformed from boring to fun!

 

Finally, one must realize that bankers subject every single key economic statistic in every major market in the world to these fake “adjustments.” Unemployment too high? No problem. Call in the Bureau of Economic Adjustments to adjust the “real” unemployment figures lower by a factor of 80% to sell the false narrative of job growth. Housing starts too low? No problem. Call in the Bureau of Economic Adjustments to adjust “real” housing starts upward by 300% to sell a false narrative of a recovering real estate market. And on and on. What is amazing to me is the number of charlatans and snake oil salesmen out there masquerading as bank analysts and economists still reporting on “official” economic indicators that have millions of people following their every word with bated breath.

 

To conclude this article, let’s plant the cherry on top of this towering mountain of deception. Business Insider just posted a massively deceptive story titled, “How the American Economic Story Changed in Just a Few Weeks” in which they reported the following:

 

“At that time, Wall Street was still expecting that the first quarter would show an economy that had slowed to start the year, but would still grow around 2%. Something, it seemed, was wrong. A few days later, the March jobs report showed that in the final month of the year’s first quarter, the economy added the fewest number of jobs it had added in a year. In March, 126,000 jobs were created, far below Wall Street forecasts. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 5.5%, and perhaps the most negative part of the report were revisions to prior reports, which saw jobs gains in both January and February decreased after the fact.”

 

Well, guess what Business Insider? You didn’t wait long enough. Because that first upward annualized GDP of 0.2% (which by the way on a quarterly basis, means the first upward adjusted Q1 figure was only a 0.05% quarterly growth rate) has been now updated to coincidentally come very close to the Wall Street expectation of 2% at 1.8%. And we all know by now, what Wall Street expects, Wall Street gets. The problem is not that the American economic story “changed in just a few weeks” as the banking shills masquerading as “journalists” at Business Insider claimed. The problem is that the story never changed, but the MSM never tells the public the truth. Not once. Ever. Even though the US economy has been incredibly weak and fragile for quarter after quarter after quarter now, Business Insider, as is the case for every single journalist employed by the MSM, performs zero investigative journalism to challenge the MSM and “official” banker narrative to bring the truth to the people. And that is the truth.

Evidence of Runaway Inflation: Would You Pay $82MM for This?

May 25th, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

Evidence of runaway inflation has been seeping into the art world lately. We discuss below what the insanity in the world of art auction prices portends for financial markets and the ongoing banker currency wars. Recently, the top 10 lots at a Christie’s and a Sotheby’s art auction fetched about $800 million, illustrating the desperation of the uber wealthy to dispense of their counterfeit, heavily devaluing, fiat currencies and to convert them into hard assets. Here is the list below of the auction prices of these 10 lots.

Pablo Picasso, “Les Femmes d’Alger (Version ‘O’),” $179.4 million
Alberto Giacometti, “L’Homme au Doigt,” $141.3 million
Mark Rothko “No. 10,” $81.9 million
Pablo Picasso, “Buste de Femme (Femme a la Resille),” $67.4 million
Vincent Van Gogh, “L’Allée des Alyscamps,” $66.3 million
Lucian Freud, “Benefits Supervisor Resting,” $56.2 million
Andy Warhol “Colored Mona Lisa,” $56.2 million
Claude Monet, “Nympheas,” $54 million
Mark Rothko, “Untitled (Yellow and Blue),” $46.5 million
Francis Bacon “Portrait of Henrietta Moraes,” $47.8 million

Podcast #6: Deciphering the Language of Lies

May 11th, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

Very rarely, if ever, is there a failure of regulators, a failure of central bankers, a failure of commercial bankers, failures on the war on drugs, failures in military wars, etc. because all of these institutions and people deliberately plan, execute and achieve exactly what they intend to accomplish. This is the big secret they don’t want us to realize. One of the greatest scams our “leaders” have pulled off is creating a language of lies that ironically convinces us even further believe, adopt and internalize their lies, so much so, that even many activists embrace these lies in their activism against them. The truth about this carefully woven web of deceit created by bankers, politicians, media hacks, and industrialists known as the language of lies is almost as mind-blowing as the conclusion in the film Interstellar (Warning: Spoiler Alert. Stop reading if you have not yet watched Interstellar). After watching Interstellar, you must conclude that NASA pilot Cooper must travel into space in order for his daughter Murphy to receive the message to tell his father not to leave her and not to travel into space. And that if Cooper never traveled to space, then Murphy would never have received the message she received from her father in which he was trying to warn himself not to go. If thinking about that didn’t make your brain hurt, then perhaps listing to our latest podcast will.

 

In fact with mainstream media so inundated and saturated with as little facts as possible and as much propaganda as possible at any point during my lifetime, all of which is constructed with the intent of convincing us to embrace false narratives that will keep us passive and in a perpetual state of inertia, I can think of no better time than right now for the subject of today’s SmartKnowledgeU Podcast #6: Deciphering the Language of Lies.

Podcast #5: Everything Wrong With Banking Today

Today, in SmartKnowledgeU Podcast #5, we discuss “Everything Wrong With Banking Today.” Of course, we literally don’t discuss everything wrong with banking today, because such a task is so monumental that our podcast would last for weeks, instead of just the 30 minutes or so duration of Podcast #5. Too many people misunderstand our topic of what is wrong with banking today when they make the counterarguments saying banking must exist today for the convenience of providing a medium of exchange for goods and services in society. We have never argued with this point since day one of our blog when we started posting the truth about the banking industry in 2006. However, there is a way to operate a system honestly and with integrity for the benefit of the people and another way to operate a system dishonestly and inherently with fraud to the detriment of humanity. The banking industry is firmly entrenched in the latter operational platform today. By exposing the systemic dishonesty of the banking industry today, we are not calling for the abolition of the banking industry.  We are merely calling for the abolition of all the fraud, dishonesty and deceit within the banking system and a return to honest banking principles that serve the people instead of only serving the wealth trajectories of the CEOs of Goldman Sachs, Citibank, HSBC, ScotiaMocatta, JP Morgan, Bank of America, etc. and the families that own the world’s privately-run Central Banks.
