Nomi Prins Author of “All the Presidents Bankers“ on Upcoming Collapse

Best-selling author Nomi Prins warns, “Never before have the Government and the Fed collaborated so extensively by propping up the banking system to the detriment of the population.” Prins lays out a long history of the relationships between U.S. Presidents and bankers that date back to Teddy Roosevelt and JP Morgan. On her new book titled “All the Presidents’ Bankers,” Prins contends, “That connection with Teddy Roosevelt was a very powerful established entity between two people that has allowed all this stuff that has happened in the last hundred years to really happen. The friendships, the social ties, the idea that the bankers could sort themselves out with Treasury Department help if it needed to. Of course, it’s epic now. All of that was solidified then. Banks being hands-off with respect to the oval office was all solidified then. We’ve only been consolidating that message throughout the century since.”

Fast forward to JFK and the bankers of the day, and Prins points out the banks in the early 1960’s didn’t want a gold standard to restrict them. It is dollar debasement history as Prins explains, “If bankers have a peg, if they have to put gold or any type of asset behind it or have any restriction, they don’t like it. So at the time, they weren’t working on trying to demolish the regulations that happened from the 1930’s to separate bank speculation from depositors, but they saw something else, and that was getting off gold. They really worked to push JFK off of gold. JFK was a little less friendly with the bankers. JFK, when he did invite bankers to the White House, he would have very short meetings. It was like hello, goodbye and thank you. Where LBJ, who came after JFK, was very friendly to the bankers and opened the White House to the bankers.”

How BLM sells out America’s land to foreign interests

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 by: J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) A real estate expert says he thinks the recent standoff between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy is not about grazing rights or the endangerment of the desert tortoise but about “sweetheart deals” for the development of federal land.

Fabian Calvo, in an interview with Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog.org, said his firm, TheNoteHouse.us, does $100 million a year in sales of mortgages and distressed notes, and that the “hair on the back of [his] neck stood up” when he was researching the situation surrounding Bundy and the BLM.

‘I have a laundry list of deals approved just in the last year’

“The hair on the back of my neck stood up when I was doing research for this and speaking to some of my contacts on Wall Street,” Calvo said. “The BLM is part of the Department of the Interior, and look at what they have been doing? [sic] Through the BLM, the Department of the Interior has been confiscating land and going after land, for example, in the high desert in California and all over the place.”

Calvo said some were telling him that the BLM was categorizing Bundy’s land for future collateralization or to sell it outright.

“In the Weimar (Germany) hyperinflation, after the hyperinflation, what did they back their currency with? They backed it with mortgages and they backed it with land. This is a total possibility here in America, but here’s the part that is more sinister and crazy,” Calvo said. “The Department of the Interior and BLM have been providing sweetheart deals for Chinese investors. I have a laundry list of deals that have been approved just in the last year.”

At least one of those Chinese deals can be indirectly tied to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. As reported by Joseph Farah at WorldNetDaily:

It seems the Senate majority leader has been doing favors for a Chinese energy giant ENN, which has plans to build massive solar facilities in that area — tortoises or no tortoises.

The Global Banking Game Is Rigged, and the FDIC Is Suing

Monday, 14 April 2014 09:29
By Ellen Brown, Web of Debt | News Analysis 1

Taxpayers are paying billions of dollars for a swindle pulled off by the world’s biggest banks, using a form of derivative called interest-rate swaps; and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation has now joined a chorus of litigants suing over it. According to an SEIU report:
Derivatives . . . have turned into a windfall for banks and a nightmare for taxpayers. . . . While banks are still collecting fixed rates of 3 to 6 percent, they are now regularly paying public entities as little as a tenth of one percent on the outstanding bonds, with rates expected to remain low in the future. Over the life of the deals, banks are now projected to collect billions more than they pay state and local governments – an outcome which amounts to a second bailout for banks, this one paid directly out of state and local budgets.
It is not just that local governments, universities and pension funds made a bad bet on these swaps. The game itself was rigged, as explained below. The FDIC is now suing in civil court for damages and punitive damages, a lead that other injured local governments and agencies would be well-advised to follow. But they need to hurry, because time on the statute of limitations is running out.
The Largest Cartel in World History
On March 14, 2014, the FDIC filed suit for LIBOR-rigging against sixteen of the world’s largest banks – including the three largest US banks (JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, and Citigroup), the three largest UK banks, the largest German bank, the largest Japanese bank, and several of the largest Swiss banks. Bill Black, professor of law and economics and a former bank fraud investigator, calls them “the largest cartel in world history, by at least three and probably four orders of magnitude.”
LIBOR (the London Interbank Offering Rate) is the benchmark rate by which banks themselves can borrow. It is a crucial rate involved in hundreds of trillions of dollars in derivative trades, and it is set by these sixteen megabanks privately and in secret.
Interest rate swaps are now a $426 trillion business. That’s trillion with a “t” – about seven times the gross domestic product of all the countries in the world combined. According to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, in 2012 US banks held $183.7 trillion in interest-rate contracts, with only four firms representing 93% of total derivative holdings; and three of the four were JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and Bank of America, the US banks being sued by the FDIC over manipulation of LIBOR.

The Communist Chinese Takeover of All US Energy

Dave Hodges

The Common Sense Show

China, allied with Russia, is in the process of taking over the United States, or should I say that our public officials are giving away the country to them. In the following paragraphs, the analysis is limited to Chinese based interests, but the same could be said for the Russians as well.

In my previous article, it was clearly demonstrated that the Chinese are preparing, among other things, to assume control of supplying America’s energy needs at a cost that they deem appropriate. It is a simple business proposition. They own our debt, we have defaulted and they are here to be compensated.

The Giveaway of American Energy to the Chinese
The Bundy affair affirmed the fact that Chinese are being handed control of solar energy inside the United States and that this is being facilitated by Senator Harry Reid. The takeover of American energy is being manifested on many fronts, but in particular, it is being concentrated on the takeover of the solar industry in the new Agenda 21 designation with the so-called “Solar Energy Zones”.

These Solar Energy Zones are appearing in multiple locations in such places as Southwestern Arizona, Barstow, CA. and Victorville, CA., and now I am receiving on te ground reports from Colorado and Utah as well. These designated Solar Energy Zones have very similar variables in common. The following chart indicates that the debt compensation will consist of complete control of the solar industry and will be expanded to other energy sources (e.g. hydroelectric and nuclear power). Again, here is a chart which demonstrates the commonalities shared by these Solar Energy Zones.

Coincidence or Conspiracy?
Chinese Solar on Bundy’s Ranch vs Arizona Solar Farm

Chinese money backing project vs Chinese money involved in project
Creation of Agenda 21 “Solar Energy Zone” vs Creation of Agenda 21 “Solar Energy Zone”
Located near a Canamex Highway (I-15) vs Located near a Canamex Highway (1-10)
Located near a major energy source (Hoover Dam) vs Located near a major energy source (Palo Verde Nuclear Plant)
Located near a major military base (Nellis AFB) vs Located near a major military base ancillary facilities (Luke AFB)

Further, the above chart indicates that the Chinese will control a good portion of American transportation. The proximity of Solar Energy Zones to the Canamex Highway Corridor system speaks to this intent. There is also a military aspect of this that should jump out at the reader and this will be discussed in detail in the next part in this series.

Chilling Truth: The Siege of the Bundy Ranch Reaches into the White House

1
Cliven Bundy, can a cowboy defeat the Marxists?

In the end, there is only one reason why the Bundy ranch was besieged. President Obama had to have taken the lead. He knew it was going on and he sanctioned it. Beyond oil, solar, and Chinese Communists with money, lurks Obama’s Agenda.

InfoWars has found a smoking gun in the case of embattled rancher Cliven Bundy. A lucrative contract – which will benefit Harry Reid and his son Rory Reid – specifically mentions the need to rid the land of Cliven Bundy. In addition, Natural News pointed out that the BLM is in the business of selling lucrative oil and gas leases. It does answer the question, Why now?

There is a much bigger picture in all of this, however, and that is the fact Mr. Obama believes the government should control the land and water in the United States. He sees the government as the protector of the nation’s resources. It is his belief. He does not respect private property – it is the government’s to take. That should now be obvious to everyone.

Mr. Obama is social engineering citizens off their land into congested hubs to preserve the land for nature and to have it available for government use, maybe even to share the resources with U.N. member nations such as China, because he believes in globalism, an extreme form of globalism. He has already expressed a desire to share the wealth from our resources with the world through treaties such as The Law of the Sea treaty.

Washington Is Humanity’s Worst Enemy

Washington Is Humanity’s Worst Enemy

Paul Craig Roberts

How does Washington get away with the claim that the country it rules is a democracy and has freedom? This absurd claim ranks as one of the most unsubstantiated claims in history.

There is no democracy whatsoever. Voting is a mask for rule by a few powerful interest groups. In two 21st century rulings (Citizens United and McCutcheon), the US Supreme Court has ruled that the purchase of the US government by private interest groups is merely the exercise of free speech. These rulings allow powerful corporate and financial interests to use their money-power to elect a government that serves their interests at the expense of the general welfare.

The control private interests exercise over the government is so complete that private interests have immunity to prosecution for crimes. At his retirement party on March 27, Securities and Exchange Commission prosecutor James Kidney stated that his prosecutions of Goldman Sachs and other “banks too big to fail” were blocked by superiors who “were focused on getting high-paying jobs after their government service.” The SEC’s top brass, Kidney said, did not “believe in afflicting the comfortable and powerful.” In his report on Kidney’s retirement speech, Eric Zuesse points out that the Obama regime released false statistics in order to claim prosecutions that did not take place in order to convince a gullible public that Wall Street crooks were being punished. http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/04/09/65578/

Democracy and freedom require an independent and aggressive media, an independent and aggressive judiciary, and an independent and aggressive Congress. The United States has none of the above.

The US media consistently lies for the government. Reuters continues to report, falsely, that Russia invaded and annexed Crimea. The Washington Post ran an obviously false story planted on the paper by the Obama regime that the massive protests in former Russian territories of Ukraine are “rent-a-mobs” instigated by the Russian government
