Here’s one photo that exemplifies the global currency wars. A Samsung Galaxy smartphone in 2015 is now nearly equal to the price of a car in 2011 in Argentina.


This scenario is what many of us can now expect in future years, courtesy of your friendly neighborhood Central Bankers.

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

May 9th, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

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.

I Predicted Bankers Would Ban Cash Nearly 3 Years Ago

May 5th, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

Nearly three years ago, in June of 2012, I wrote an article titled, “The Criminal Banking Cartel’s End Game: 100% Digital Money”.

So now that it is May, 2015, what is actually happening? Exactly what we predicted in 2012 as you can see from the articles below.

HSBC imposes restrictions on large cash withdrawals

Largest Bank in America Joins the War on Cash

JP Morgan Bans Storage of Cash in its Safe Deposit Boxes

They are Slowly Making Cash Illegal

In a Blow to Greece, ECB Restricts Banks’ Access to Cash

With the exception of the first article, all of these articles were published in the last several months. So what is going on with bankers no longer wanting the public to use cash anymore? For the answers, just read my article above that I published 3 years ago. I revealed at the time, the propaganda and lies being spread by mass media publications such as Time magazine, the UK Telegraph, Wired Magazine and others to build acceptance for a cashless society.  I also already revealed 3 years ago the ulterior motives of bankers that want to usher in an all digital currency system. Now that bankers are making this push, the implications on global markets should be extremely worrisome to all of us as I predicted in 2012 that this push to a cashless society would coincide with great economic disaster.

Podcast #4: Gold & Silver Propaganda V. Truth

April 15th, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

Today, we discuss how the conversion of mainstream news into outright propaganda  prevents us from seeing financial truth when it is staring us right in the face, especially when it comes to financial news surrounding gold and silver. We further discuss how to clearly identify such propaganda and the measures you can take to prevent being influenced by such propaganda. We discuss the clear cracks that are showing up in the global banking and monetary system as illustrated by the actions of bankers all around the world, despite their contrary narrative that economies are improving in the very nations where the majority of citizens’ standard of living is dramatically decreasing. Finally we discuss why conversion of increasingly valueless paper and digital fiat currencies into physical gold and physical silver will be a lifesaver for those willing to sort through all the propaganda of the mainstream financial news and arrive at the truth and reality.

Is A University Education Today Worth the Cost?

March 10th, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

Albert Einstein once described education in this manner: “It is not so very important for a person to learn facts. For that he does not really need a college. He can learn them from books.  The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks” (Einstein, His Life and Times, by Philipp Frank). Unfortunately, industrialists and bankers who reshaped schooling to serve their needs during the Industrial Revolution have transformed institutional academia into the rote memorization of many facts and have rotated it away from real learning that trains the mind to think. In fact, just as the penal system “institutionalizes” young men that spend the majority of their youth incarcerated, the institutional academic system “institutionalizes” children that spend the majority of their youth being reprogrammed by the behavioral modification, Pavlovian conditioning, and Skinnerian operant conditioning objectives that industrialists and bankers have imbedded into the global academic system. In SmartKnowledgeU Podcast #3, we discuss the downfall and degradation of schooling from institutions of learning into institutions of behavioral modification that turn young children into people that “yield themselves with perfect docility to [the General Education Board’s] molding hands.” As the head of John D. Rockefeller’s General Education Board stated, bankers and industrialists desired to transform the purpose of schooling into one that revolved around “teach[ing] [children] to do in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way” and to prevent children from evolving into learned men and women that may grow up to challenge their authority and that possess the desire to right the wrongs they see in society.


Though the shills that work for bankers and industrialists often successfully marginalize those that expose the true intentions of their academic system, in today’s podcast, we provide many direct quotes from many books and policy manuals that shaped the modern day education system so that everyone may come to their own conclusions. Furthermore, we provide many links to the referenced sources in the YouTube description of this podcast that is available on our SmartKnowledgeU YouTube video of this podcast as we encourage everyone to perform their own confirming research to draw their own conclusions about this extremely important topic. In fact, the reason so many of us today are so oblivious to the truth about today’s currency wars, today’s geopolitical confrontations between the US and Russia and the US and China, and today’s fragile state of many global markets can be directly attributed to much of the behavioral modification conditioning we undergo as children as we regress through the institutional academic system. In the end, once we learn the truth about the “modern” academic system, the question all of us should be asking today is if the cost of a university “education” is even worth it.  For those of you that would like a downloadable mp3 file of today’s podcast, please click this link.


I have been very careful to provide many direct quotes from education policy manuals and books that industrialists and bankers used to completely reshape the institutional academic system during the Industrial Revolution in the above podcast so that you may all draw your own conclusions based upon these objective quotes.  If you follow the YouTube link above and read the description, you will find many of the references listed so that you may confirm my research and read the referenced documents yourself. Past studies have illustrated that home-schooled children test out at equal or better levels on standardized testing compared to children that attend formal academic institutions at pennies on the dollar regarding the money spent to education each child. I firmly believe that those online education programs that focus on providing learning to children (as opposed to the focus on social and behavioral modification of formal academic programs) will not only be able to compete with higher institutions of schooling at a fraction of the cost, but will also be able to produce far superior learning to formal academic programs. In the end, the trend would definitely gravitate towards higher online learning at a fraction of the cost and away from the formal academic setting of a classroom if formal academic institutions do not drastically alter their methods of teaching to refocus on learning and “training the mind”.

What We Can Learn From 26-Year Old Larry Sanders’s Decision to Walk Away From $21MM of a $44MM NBA Contract

February 26th, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather


What can we learn from a 26-year old young man named Larry Sanders, who decided to walk away from a four-year $44 million NBA contract? Plenty. Mr. Sanders did not walk away with nothing, however, as his team, the Milwaukee Bucks, bought out his contract somewhere in a reported $13MM to $15MM range. Consequently, in total, Mr. Sanders will still receive about $23MM or so of his original $44 million contract. Still, what would make a man walk away from $21MM in the prime of his athletic career? Mr. Sanders himself provided the answer yesterday in a personal video he released. To begin, he revealed that he has been suffering from anxiety, depression and mood disorders. He said that in seeking treatment for his emotional problems, he learned “what’s important and where [he] wants to devote [his] time” and that basketball at this stage in his life was just “consuming so much of [his] life and time,” that for him, it wasn’t “worth it.” But it’s his further revelations that shed more light on his decision.

Sometimes to Uncover the Truth, You Have to Start with a “Conspiracy Theory”

February 24th, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

By now, many of you are familiar with the quote I’ve used by famed German philosopher Arthur Shopenhauer several times in my past videos: “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”  Unfortunately, for the vast majority of us, we never get beyond the first stage of uncovering the truth – the stage where it is mercilessly ridiculed by people that work tirelessly to conceal the truth and keep it hidden from you. For these reasons, you must stop listening to anyone out there that ridicules discussions of gold and silver price suppression schemes as the work of “conspiracy theorists” and “nutjobs”, because such ad hominem attacks should give rise to the realization that these people are working against your best interests.  It’s one thing if people keep calling a plot a conspiracy theory if there is no evidence to back up accusations of criminal machinations. It’s an entirely different and sinister accusation to make when mounds of evidence that proves such manipulations are ongoing already exist. Read the rest of this entry »

SmartKnowledgeU Podcast #2: The Necessity of Diversity to Understanding Truth

February 21st, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

In SmartKnowledgeU Podcast #2, we discuss The Necessity of Diversity to Understanding Truth. Without realizing it, many of us lead remarkably non-diverse lives. We go to work and socialize with the same people in our office after work. If we socialize with people outside our office, often it is with people still in our industry that think like us. We go to dinner with people of the same socioeconomic status and remarkably shut out socializing with people that are from different economic means as us because we believe they have nothing to teach us. We socialize with people of the same nationality and never learn that people from other countries may have markedly different views of the world than our own. And if socialize with people of different religions, we have been taught that religion is a taboo subject so we never really learn anything about any other religion outside of our own. Human nature draws people to others that look like us and think like us yet such behavior ensures that we all remain unthinking robots and never learn the real nature of finance, religion, mathematics, science, astronomy, history and a myriad of other subject matters. Diversity and the divergent thinking that arises from diverse perspectives are the most important teachers of critical thinking, and critical thinking, in turn, is the most important teacher of realizing the truth about almost all matters in life. We should all make a concerted effort to embrace as much diversity as possible in all facets of our lives. If anything, embracing diversity in our lives will steer us towards a process that provides us a much greater chance of uncovering the truth from the mountains of propaganda spewed by the mainstream media. The fact that the mainstream media is fraught with much more propaganda than truth is not a new concept, as Noam Chomsky discussed this topic at great length in his seminal book Manufacturing Consent more than a decade ago. However, today, diversity in our way of thinking is absolutely necessary to understanding truth, as things often are not what they appear to be. For example, is Syriza really fighting for the Greek citizens against the bankers, or are they a George Soros funded front to fool the people once again? The truth behind questions like this is often buried under mountains of propaganda and the only way to have a chance at arriving at the truth is to embrace as many possible perspectives as possible.

In our second podcast, we discuss why diversity in our lives is absolutely necessity to understanding truth. To download the mp3 file of this podcast, click the link below. To listen to this podcast on YouTube, click this link.

Here is the first SmartKnowledgeU Podcast #1 that we posted on our YouTube channel on 16 February 2015. As requested by some of our YouTube channel subscribers, please find a downloadable mp3 file of the said podcast. Basically for topics on our YouTube channel that run more than 15 to 20 minutes, we will be releasing them in the form of a podcast, available as downloadable mp3 files here and available to listen to on YouTube. To be informed of future podcasts, please subscribe to the SmartKnowledgeU YouTube channel here by clicking on the red “subscribe” button. Today, we discuss what bankers really mean by the word “bailout”, which is a false word in the manner in which they use it, and why the Greek Syriza party, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, and Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis are so opposed to a Eurogroup “bailout” extension which will harm Greek citizens for decades to come. Furthermore we discuss the US NBC news anchor Brian Williams scandal, and why this scandal is so important as it relates to the mainstream media constantly deceiving the public with not only “fake”, made-up news about wars, but also banker propaganda and “fake”, made-up news about what is happening in the world of global finance. If you can make the leap in connecting the dots of the Brian Williams scandal to news anchors all over the world regularly reporting fake news about global finance, then you will be much better prepared to handle the coming financial earthquakes that are coming in 2015-2016 that will shock most people, but be expected by those willing to dig for the truth.

Use the Golden Rule Daily to Make Everyone’s Life Better

February 5th, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather
Today we  take a break to extend our “Curiously Thirsty” series and we discuss how daily application of the Golden Rule can not only improve your life’s outlook but also perhaps help to change the outlook and consciousness of those around us that are unfortunately working to enslave, instead of free, humanity. At SmartKnowledgeU, we firmly believe that negativity breeds and welcomes negativity while positivity breeds and welcomes positivity. Sometimes it is up to us, and our choice, on whether we have a wonderful day or a horribly pessimistic day. In such uncertain economic times with volatility in financial markets at all-time highs and Central Bankers’ currency wars escalating and spreading misery around the world, often it can be difficult to maintain a positive outlook on life. However, simple remembrance of the power of the Golden Rule can often help us maintain a positive outlook when immersed in a negative environment and ha s transformative power to even change the negative people into a positive force for humanity.
In recent days, the Swiss Franc soared 37% in minutes against the Euro when Central Bankers reneged on a promise to keep the franc pegged to the Euro. March oil futures plunged by 8.7% yesterday, wiping out people, in just one day, that had gone long in oil markets on recent oil futures strength. These whiplash volatile events are not only indicative of the broken and structurally fragile nature of global markets today, but also a sign of the desperation of bankers to maintain manipulative control of the immoral wealth transference power of their fraudulent pricing mechanisms established within the global financial and banking system. This type of volatility should signal to the last doubters out there that bankers manipulate all capital markets and that the prices of stocks, real estate and commodity literally have nothing to do with real supply and real demand at times, but is instead steered solely by bankers that manipulate the underlying derivative contracts of these capital markets and that artificially set interest rates.
The currency wars that bankers have unleashed upon the world is wreaking havoc today on the financial livelihoods of people on every continent. As people rebel against the bankers’ imposition of austerity as is currently happening in Greece, Spain and in many other countries, it becomes even more important to apply the Golden Rule if we wish to avoid a devolution into violent chaos. Instead, we should all strive  to evolve into a higher consciousness where we consider if our gains in business come at the expense of creating poverty and hardships for others. There are so many people in today’s world, that would drastically change the manner in which they conduct business into a positive force for society instead of being a drain on society, if they only applied the Golden Rule. We have seen from the study of political revolutions, that often when one dictator is toppled in a country, another dictator unfortunately rises from the ashes to repl ace him.  We should be extremely wary of these historical lessons, and while we should join our brothers and sisters in Greece, Iceland, and Spain to topple our current immoral fraudulent platforms, we should be very mindful and practice The Golden Rule to ensure that other power hungry people do not rise up to assume the power void to establish an equally tyrannical banking and financial platform to replace any toppled one. I believe that staying mindful of the Golden Rule will help us to implement a new banking platform that will give rise to equal opportunity for all and that will help establish a new renaissance and positive outlook for all of humanity, when this time eventually arrives (and it will).  
A lot of people today are unaware that the “pull yourself up by your bootstrap” narrative has never been a fair saying or an accurate representation of global economic poverty as the type of banking system that has existed for more than a century has been one that overtly provides massive advantages to the uber wealthy while placing those in the middle class and the poor several kilometers behind them at the starting line (though this is a topic for another day, this is a topic that is factually correct and can be explained through a simple revelation of how our “modern” banking system truly operates today). In fact, under our current banking system, it is nearly impossible for the 3 billion people in this world that live in poverty to get out of poverty, simply because at the rate bankers are degrading the purchasing power of fiat currencies today, a jump in their salaries from $2 a day to $4 a day won’t even make a difference in their quality of life.
While we certainly require a revolution against the ongoing currency wars, we must remember, central to any revolution that spreads positivity to humanity is love, not hate. Below, I speak about the power of the Golden Rule and how we can use this simple maxim daily not only to improve our lives but to improve the lives of those that surround us, even if these people are negative. Give daily practice of the Golden Rule a try and experience its transformative power in your life!

The Curious Case of Germany’s Gold Repatriation Efforts

February 3rd, 2015
facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

The Curious Case of Germany’s Gold Repatriation Efforts, by JS Kim

Today we talk about the many fishy circumstances surrounding Germany’s alleged repatriation of 120 tonnes of gold, 85 from the US Federal Reserve and 35 from the Banque de France. Again, as was the case with the 5 tonnes allegedly repatriated from the US Federal Reserve in 2013, 50 of the 85 tonnes repatriated from the Fed Reserve bankers in 2014 was melted down and refabricated into new bars which indicates that of the 90 tonnes returned to Germany, that a minimum of the repatriated 55 tonnes was not Germany’s gold but belonged to another country. Common sense dictates that if the Federal Reserve still had Germany’s original bars then there would be no reason to melt down their original bars and refabricate them into new bars before returning them. So the still unanswered question is, “From where did this 55 tonnes of gold come?” In addition of the 35 tonnes that were reported to be in their original state, there still has been zero photographic evidence of this and only the word of bankers’, which, anyone knows is worth less than the paper on which it is written. Furthermore, of the 67 tonnes of gold repatriated from the Banque of France in the last two years, there has been no photographic evidence provided that these bars were returned in their original condition either. They may very well have been the original bars, but the important point is that there is zero transparency even in repatriation efforts and the exchange of gold between Central Bankers.


Finally, with the Federal Reserve releasing the data for their gold storage for the last month of 2014, the tonnes of gold that Central Bankers reported they withdrew from the Feds in 2014 does not match with the tonnes of gold Fed Reserve bankers reported as withdrawn from their storage facilities. Again, a logical person would conclude that the bankers that withdrew gold from the US Federal Reserve lied about the origins of their repatriated gold, the US Federal Reserve lied about how much gold they actually possess, or the US Federal Reserve lied about how much gold they actually returned to other Central Banks in 2014.Anyway you slice it, as can be expected with banker data about gold, the numbers do NOT add up.
