23.12.2013 14:45

2013 was the year where the threat of removing the QE punchbowl provoked market panic, while the EU was instrumental in sinister programs of theft above and beyond even the rapacious 'Central Bankers’ party'...

"There are to many people in the world chasing to few resources..."

Funny, I thought the problem was the bankers and friends squeezing the rest of us; its the rich we cant afford. The notion that population is the crisis is a neo-liberal myth.

Point break is when the material snaps because it has no more to give , Dwell time is the window prior to something happening .
There are to many people in the world chasing to few resources , the systems are are now so chocked with rule and regulation there not enough room to manoeuvre ,
So we come to the dwell time where the corporations/ governments know whats coming and are robbing us blind , so they can protect them selves with assets and land grabs for their secure areas.
2015 is seen as the start of phase 1 and by 2020 we will in a police state and Mad Max will rule the day !

But why were terrorist, illegal immigrants, lgbt getting rights & women getting abortions blamed? Aagh USA voters never had any choice once the robbing began! Some might even suggest they even enjoyed being blind folded & tied! Anything to pay the mortgage to the banker... ha!

For working people, the US economy has been in depression now for many years. The US greatest export of late has been jobs; the middle class is destroyed and workers now compete for third world wages. Capitalism is great, if you're a capitalist; not so great for the rest of us.

  


Ye s so now Westerners know how does it feel at least a little to be an immigrant from a poor country. Maybe it will teach them compassion.

I sense a financial reset coming, but I may be mistaken.

  


that will happen too. but not yet. but will start to happen since 2017 - 2025 until then expect governments and corporations to squeeze us to the maximum, restrict us and spy on us. 2017 is when the worldwide revolution accelerate. well especially in the west it will. Im coming from numerological and astrological calculation that until now proved to be right.

The monitory systems are dying they are close to point break ,time scale is 2020 ,governments are spending our money like water they have lots of projects to protect them selves ,corporations are doing the same its a money grab with no holds barred ,while we get put in harms way .
British MP,s / ministers get an 11% pay rise plus a rise in expenses lords get £300 plus just for signing into the house 20 minutes later they just come back out ,as a poet once said they are lions lead by donkeys !

The US is doing the same thing both the Brithish, japanese, chinese, perzians, romans, french, spanish, greeks,,,, did. Overextending ones reach and trying to make everyone happy. It's impossible especially given the fact they can't even keep there own people happy expcept throug entertainment or an illusion of a free country.

They are afraid of potential visions certain religions have for the world and instead of trying to change there vision they just go and kill them and create more lkeminded people at the same time as those that have just been killed.

If only they weren't so afraid of educating the people.

Well we all know that Greece was just the trojan horse by now. That in reality the situation in the US is much worse most likely in reality. The only reason the US s being able to cut it's budget. Has been fior several years either print more money, budget cuts where budget is needed, budget increaxes for situations brought fourth by ones own greed, fixing the market and shifting with the numbers in order to make there real numbers not scare of potential investors or losing ones influence.

In reality the US has been feeding on it's own tail for the past century and now we get to see the result of it. Following mommy

EU is dead and euro will disappear in few years. Euro is only fiat current which does not have full functionalities needed for any currency. All the EU countries are in deep economic problems, including Germany whose infrastructures are crambling (Der Spiegel). No new innovations from Germany. Germans are very good salesmen without substance. No new medicines came out from Germany for many yrs. France is another country which is now a seriously sick person in EU led by Hollande (fascist) with the lowest popularity in history. No world politicians wanted to shake hands (The Independent). No prospect for recovery.

Paul Craig Roberts has written several articles about how QE has been a Federal Reserve tactic for channeling money from the common people into Wall Street 'too big to fail" bank accounts. This policy disguises the toxic derivitives and gives these banks more money to gamble away so the banks can continue to pay the obscene bonuses to top executives. The banks then tell the main stream media (they own the media) we are experiencing an economic recovery. A recovery that is invisible to 99% of the population.

I highly recommend his website, just do a web search and you will have all the info you need.

The US have a financial system where the personnel/staff get richer (more pocket money) and the customer with his bank account/mortgage have to pay a high interest. The US-financial system is based on lies, even in Europe are countries with financial problems because of the same lies. As government or a citizen you can't buy something without money, if you lie about your financials and others who believing your (hidden) financials they are compliant; the fraud shows when it's to late. And if you think well, you can't be easy living maybe in Utopia. Cyprus isn't so poor with an US/UK intelligence base in his territory.

"tawdry" is a poor chice of word's to describe the largest fraud and theft ever perpertrated on hunderds of milions of people with the full assistance of those who are supposed to prevent this kind of thing from ever happening.
