Doug Casey of CaseyResearch.com warns, "Were going into what I call 'The Greater Depression.' It's going to be much more serious than what happened in the 1930's. . . . A depression is a period of time when most people's standard of living drops significantly." Casey explains, "There is a gigantic amount of debt in the U.S. at all levels—governmental, corporate and individual. Debt is a sign you have been living above your means. It's a debt bubble, and this is a major reason the government wants interest rates low. When interest rates rise, it makes it harder for people in debt to service that debt. They are simply delaying the inevitable at this point, but it is inevitable what is going to happen, and we are going to have a fantastic depression."
On physical gold and silver, Casey says, "Gold is more important to own and perhaps a better bargain now than in 197
Economic Collapse -- How Did Enron Make Their Money, Hide Their Finances, Fail and Get Caught? Financial Reporting (2004)
Enron Corporation (former New York Stock Exchange ticker symbol ENE) was an American energy, commodities, and services company based in Houston, Texas. Before its bankruptcy on December 2, 2001, Enron employed approximately 20,000 staff and was one of the world's major electricity, natural gas, communications, and pulp and paper companies, with claimed revenues of nearly $101 billion during 2000. Fortune named Enron "America's Most Innovative Company" for six consecutive years.
At the end of 2001, it was revealed that its reported financial condition was sustained substantially by an institutionalized, systematic, and creatively planned accounting fraud, known since as the Enron scandal. Enron has since become a well-known example of willful corporate fraud and corruption. The scandal also brought into question the accounting practices and activities of many corporations in the United States and was a factor in the creation of the Sarbanes--Oxley Act of 2002. The scandal also affected the greater business world by causing the dissolution of the Arthur Andersen accounting company.
Enron filed for bankruptcy protection in the Southern District of New York during late 2001 and selected Weil, Gotshal & Manges as its bankruptcy counsel. It ended its bankruptcy during November 2004, pursuant to a court-approved plan of reorganization, after one of the most complex bankruptcy cases in U.S. history. A new board of directors changed the name of Enron to Enron Creditors Recovery Corp., and emphasized reorganizing and liquidating certain operations and assets of the pre-bankruptcy Enron. On September 7, 2006, Enron sold Prisma Energy International Inc., its last remaining business, to Ashmore Energy International Ltd. (now AEI).
The Enron scandal, revealed in October 2001, eventually led to the bankruptcy of the Enron Corporation, an American energy company based in Houston, Texas, and the de facto dissolution of Arthur Andersen, which was one of the five largest audit and accountancy partnerships in the world. In addition to being the largest bankruptcy reorganization in American history at that time, Enron was attributed as the biggest audit failure.
Enron was formed in 1985 by Kenneth Lay after merging Houston Natural Gas and InterNorth. Several years later, when Jeffrey Skilling was hired, he developed a staff of executives that, by the use of accounting loopholes, special purpose entities, and poor financial reporting, were able to hide billions of dollars in debt from failed deals and projects. Chief Financial Officer Andrew Fastow and other executives not only misled Enron's board of directors and audit committee on high-risk accounting practices, but also pressured Andersen to ignore the issues.
Enron shareholders filed a $40 billion lawsuit after the company's stock price, which achieved a high of US$90.75 per share in mid-2000, plummeted to less than $1 by the end of November 2001. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) began an investigation, and rival Houston competitor Dynegy offered to purchase the company at a very low price. The deal failed, and on December 2, 2001, Enron filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. Enron's $63.4 billion in assets made it the largest corporate bankruptcy in U.S. history until WorldCom's bankruptcy the next year.
Many executives at Enron were indicted for a variety of charges and were later sentenced to prison. Enron's auditor, Arthur Andersen, was found guilty in a United States District Court, but by the time the ruling was overturned at the U.S. Supreme Court, the company had lost the majority of its customers and had closed. Employees and shareholders received limited returns in lawsuits, despite losing billions in pensions and stock prices. As a consequence of the scandal, new regulations and legislation were enacted to expand the accuracy of financial reporting for public companies. One piece of legislation, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, increased penalties for destroying, altering, or fabricating records in federal investigations or for attempting to defraud shareholders. The act also increased the accountability of auditing firms to remain unbiased and independent of their clients.
Author,columnist and whistleblower Wayne Madsen goes in depth on the current table the elite are sitting at. With their last blatant attempts to sway the planet towards a New World Order, they have set the stage for their own demise built on hubris,a pile of lies,and a belief in their own soulless existence.
The Rothschilds and bankers KNOW that Americans wont do anything about the banks robbing them. Theyre too busy eating fast food, shopping on credit, and watching tv..so, as their way.of life diminishes around them, they wont care. When you try telling people to wake up, they say "dont tell ME to wake.up, and what are YOU doing to change things?"..they wont take accountability..they will get mad and tell YOU to change it..cause they are.too stupid to listen..frustrating
"Bitcoin gives people a place to hide". HSBC doesn't hide, they are upfront with their CIA drug money laundering. Apparently, according to the US .. that's OK.
Abby Martin speaks with Andreas Antonopoulos, founder of Root Eleven and co-host of let's Talk Bitcoin, discussing how Bitcoin works, and why it's so important to have a decentralized system of money.The terror word again...This word is equal to the little boy who cried wolf...The big government that cries terrorism at anyone that rats them out...The public is slowly getting smart about the word terrorism and it means less Freedom for the 99%..
Many people have a great deal of difficulty comprehending just how many wars are started for no other purpose than to force private central banks onto nations, so that you understand why the US Government is mired in so many wars against so many foreign nations. There is ample precedent for this.And all "Central" banks are controlled by a small cabal of Globalists. No wonder why the Palestinians are dogged and their Arab relatives labelled "terrorists". Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen and the next hot point: Syria. But, the reps of the U.K. said "NO WAY" to the intervention in Syria that they proposed. The world is tired of their tyranny and it will end, just like the Dark Ages did. We will evolve, hopefully without letting them destroy the planet. Kinda like that movie 'Planet of the Apes': the "Omega Weapon".
Apocalypse, Man: World's End According to Michael C. Ruppert
Most people were first exposed to Michael C. Ruppert through the 2009 documentary, Collapse, directed by Chris Smith. Collapse was one of the scariest documentaries about our world and the fragile the state of our planet. It was also one of VICE's favorite films from the past ten years.
Michael was forced to leave the LAPD after claiming that the CIA was complicit in selling drugs across America, and he quickly became one of the most original and strident voices to talk about climate change, government corruption, and peak oil through his website, "From the Wilderness."
Following the release of Collapse, Michael's personal life underwent something of a collapse itself and he paid off all his debts, left behind all his friends, and moved with his dog Rags to Colorado, planning to commit suicide.
VICE caught up with Michael in the middle of the epic beauty of the Rocky Mountains at the end of last year. We found a man undergoing a spiritual rebirth—still passionate about the world and with a whole new set of apocalyptic issues to talk about.
Apocalypse, Man is an intimate portrait of a man convinced of the imminent collapse of the world, but with answers to how the human spirit can survive the impending apocalypse.
Soundtrack by Sunn O))), Flaming Lips, Interpol, Michael C. Ruppert, and more.

Infowars.com has found exclusive video of Obama practicing his 2014 State of The Union speech inside a room of devote followers. Tune in tonight to http://www.infowars.com/show or http://www.prisonplanet.tv for live play by play commentary Mystery Science Theatre style from Alex Jones as we watch the pig demon Obama promote an expansion of his dictatorship.
On this Tuesday, January 28 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex takes a look at dystopian evacuation plans by FEMA, overkill police state security arrangements at Super Bowl XLVIII, and Obama's plan to hype the unilateral presidency during his State of the Union address later today. Alex also covers Matt Drudge's cryptic warning about having an exit plan. On today's show, Alex talks with investigative journalist, author and columnist Wayne Madsen about the protests in Ukraine and other topics. Alex also welcomes to the show scientist Jerry Petermann who talks about the dangers of Fukushima radiation.
Simple. Find ALTERNATIVES to EVERYTHING they've got in place, to try to control you. PRINT THIS UP! TAKE ACTION! SPREAD THE WORD!
1) Quit your TBTF (“Too-Big-To-Fail”) Banking/Corporate or government job.
2) Stay away from the military. Why be cannon-fodder for THEIR N.W.O.?
3) Bank at a local credit union! Why bank at a TBTF (“Too-Big-To-Fail”)
Bank, such as those that received a CRONY BANKER BAILOUT (from the
“Fed”) in late 2008, which Obama authorized with his signature?
4) Get out, and/or stay out, of DEBT!
5) USE CASH (or personal checks) AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. Avoid credit and debit cards.
6) VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLARS! (What do you support, with your time, money, energy, and attention?) THIS IS KEY!
7) Trade your FRN’s for SILVER BULLION. Silver is currently the most
affordable (undervalued), and heavily-suppressed commodity available,
and along with gold, has been used as REAL MONEY, for thousands of
years. Silver also is used in industrial applications, while gold is
not. Most historically-mined gold, remains above ground. In relatively
recent history, most historically-mined silver has been used up. It’s
supply, still-in-the-ground, is finite, and is projected to run out.
I’m sure it’s used in weapons systems. “In debt and death – they –
trust”. Need I say more?
8) CUT BACK ON OIL AND GAS CONSUMPTION! (Many oil companies are owned by Central Bankers)
9) Buy USED, locally, or online, if necessary, such as on etsy.com. Buy
from etsy.com sellers who ship within the U.S. It keeps your $$ in
either the local economy, or the larger U.S. economy.
10)Buy MADE IN USA, when buying NEW items, if you want jobs to return to the US. (If Americans begin buying MADE IN USA ONLY, guess where manufacturing jobs will move to?)
11)Buy ORGANIC food! Support your local Organic food store or Co-op! Whole,
organically-grown foods are best. LOCALLY-sourced, is ideal. Support the
true HEROES of organic food production (on the right side, of the
following poster: http://www.cornucopia.org/wp-c...
12)Take a high-quality daily multi-vitamin (such as Carlson’s, NOW brand, Stop Aging Now (SAN), or Mercola.com)
13)Contact your Representatives on critical issues: such as “END THE
FED!” (I would ONLY contact them on this ONE issue. Otherwise, IGNORE
the politicians. They don’t represent you, and haven’t for a LONG, LONG
14)Re-read the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It isn’t about
hunting! It’s about government tyranny, and protecting yourself from it.
15)THINK for yourself. TURN OFF the IDIOT-BOX (the TV), OR THROW IT
16)Read a book. Like, TRAGEDY AND HOPE, by Carrol Quigley, or THE
CREATURE FROM JEKYLL ISLAND, by G. Edward Griffin, or THE GLOBALIZATION OF POVERTY, AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER, by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, or TOTALITARIA: What If the Enemy IS the State?, by Ian Wishart.
17)Question the KLEPTOCRACY. QUESTION all ‘authority’ (Big Business +
Big Government, Big Religion, Big Media, Big Agribiz (Monsanto), Big
Pharma, etc). Question EVERYTHING. And, FOLLOW THE MONEY!
18)Pray or meditate – reduce your stress! (Stress weakens the auto-immune system, opening up the body to free radical attack).
19)Listen to soothing classical, jazz, ambient or other music you thoroughly enjoy!
20)BOYCOTT – learn this concept well, and EMPLOY IT – against those 1) enslaving, or 2) poisoning you!
There, now you have 20 (TWENTY) individual SOLUTIONS, that you or anyone, can begin using TODAY!
Beautiful performance from Elaine Diane Taylor...Ben Bernanke leaves office on January 31. This video sets the record straight. Please add your thoughts on his tenure in the comments section below... "Helicopter Ben" performed by Elaine Diane Taylor. According to "Helicopter Ben" gold isn't money but worthless pieces of paper are. That tells you everything you need to know about this educated fool.
Al Gore, ever the eco-imperialist, participated in a "Climate Change" forum and its affects on the economy, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Gore suggested that population growth in Africa is a big problem that must "be addressed". He mentions "fertility management" which is a euphemism for population control. That sounds much like the goals of Planned Parenthood's founder, Margaret Sanger's racist goals of controlling the number of black and brown people in the world.
Having been immersed in the left/right facade their entire lives, many have begun to see the world and those around them through that prism. Either someone is on the same "side" as they are, or they are the enemy. There is no room for nuance, no subtle distinctions to be made, no room for alliance or cooperation on matters of great import. Perhaps most devastatingly, there is now little room for any analysis of the powers behind the political throne, the oligarchical financial interests that could care less whether this or that President has a "D" or an "R" next to their name, whether a Prime Minister is "Labour" or "Conservative," whether an MEP identifies with the "left" or the "right." Deprived of this understanding of the real nature of political power, the public is truly powerless to identify the real problem at the root of today's political crisis, let alone even begin to address it.

Josie the Outlaw is an anarchist, activist and promoter of the ideas of voluntarism, self-ownership and a stateless society. Her YouTube videos have reached more than 200,000 viewers in just a month. Her philosophy states that "Living outside the confines of unjust laws is necessary to living a just life." We'll discuss her work partnership with Larken Rose, their current project and the rise of true anarchism across the globe. She explains her philosophy of being an outlaw. We also question why there are so few outspoken female anarchists. Other topics we discuss include law, taxes, gun control and police brutality. As an anarchist, she shares her approach to mandatory licenses, insurance and permits. Josie explains why it is our duty to speak out against tyranny. We'll also discuss the ridiculous notion of the "greater good" and the rise of socialism. Only a stateless society is logically or morally compatible with non-aggression, self-ownership and voluntaryism because government is always coercive and violent.

“If you are an ordinary person, then you can prepare yourself for war by moving to the countryside and building a farm, but you must take guns with you, as the hordes of starving will be roaming. Also, even though the elite will have their safe havens and specialist shelters, they must be just as careful during the war as the ordinary civilians, because their shelters can still be compromised.”

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus
The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
