Coming War? Saudi Arabia Oil Fields and the Iran Drone Attack EXPLAINED






The targeting for this attack was done with detailed knowledge of the process and its dependencies. The hits were extremely precise. The Yemeni armed forces claimed it attacked the facility with 10 drones (or cruise missiles). But the hits on these targets look like neither. A total of 17 hits with such precise targeting lets me assume that these were some kind of drones or missiles with man-in-the-loop control. They may have been launched from within Saudi Arabia. The U.S. and Israel are able to commit such attacks. Iran probably too. Yemen seems unlikely to have this capability without drawing on extensive support from elsewhere. Middle East Eye, a Qatari financed outlet, reported yesterday that the attack was launched from Iraq by Iran aligned forces in revenge for Israeli attacks in Syria. The author, David Hearst, is known for slandered reporting. The report is based on a single anonymous Iraqi intelligence source. Qatar, which is struggling with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates over its support for the Muslim Brotherhood, would like to see a larger conflict involving its rivals east and west of the Persian Gulf. Some thing does not add up: Why is the U.S ignoring the people who claimed fault- they know that Iran is helping the Houthis. So what ! The U.S has supported their proxies from the the days of the pioneers being paid for every dead indian to supplying ISIS with new Toyotas . Wouldn't they be attacking tanks in the refinery that were full of Oil and gas rather than empty ones .a bit too convenient. Why does Fred Flintstone (Pompeo) jump to conclusions about 'evidence' when there is none . It seems a bit too obvious who is really behind this- electioneering anyone! Notice a pattern here guys, first the tanker wars, three attacks. When Iran responded, that stopped. Just a while after now this. Whosoever is behind this wants a war very badly. My money is on the bankers .All wars are bankers wars after all . Just to keep in mind: if missiles were launched from Iran, they would have had to cross the Persian Gulf, pretty much over Bahrain (where the US Sixth Fleet is headquartered), over Dammam, and strike the target - all while undetected by the vast area of assets the US has in the region, let alone Saudi Arabia's defenses . This is attributing to Iran stealth missiles with pinpoint accuracy that the most modern US radar/defenses absolutely cannot detect - entirely invisible. Even the tail burn. Does that make sense? And if it is true. do you really want to start a war against whoever has that technology . I mean, the US mainland is far less protected than that area of the world - how many nuclear plants are within 100 miles of the ocean, where any frigate could launch one of these . So, we have absolutely no evidence. We have a claim made by a barbaric terror state that constantly lies and has it in for Iran. And we have the Trump lapping it up. Of course the liars in charge will never walk through the implications of their lies. They just expect you to swallow them, hook, line and sinker, and start World war 3 just because they tell you to. This was most likely Saudi self-inflicted. A false flag . they damage their own stuff, blame Iran, and start the war they have been dreaming of. Pretty easy to do. All they had to do is wait until Houthis launched an attack for the timing. Better to stage an attack on soon to be unneeded infrastructure and blame your people's ensuing financial pain on terrorism than become dog-meat when they realize you squandered their birthrite for pennies on the dollar, and it's gone now. This is a regime survival propaganda play. This was The Atlantis Report . Please like . share . and subscribe . Thank you ...

Saudi Aramco Drone Attack is a Reverse 9/11 False Flag Attack






On Saturday September 14th someone fired missiles or sent armed drones against Saudi oil facilities reducing world oil production by 5% and Saudi production by 50%. The beleaguered Houthis group at war by Saudi Arabia in Yemen quickly claimed credit for the attack. While the Houthis have used armed drones in attack mode previously against the Saudi’s, those flights were bee stings compared to the sophistication and breadth of success in the latest attack. The BBC calls the latest events “a different order of magnitude altogether.” There were seventeen different points of impact on the Abqaiq facility. What ragtag poorly armed enemy could possibly conduct such as remarkably complex attack? Since the recent long past sell-by date demise of John Bolton, Donald Trump’s current attack Chihuahua, Mike Pompeo, promptly insisted Iran was behind the attack. But how does Iran benefit by starting World War III ? Are they so fucking stupid that they would wave a red flag in front of the nuclear armed US, nuclear armed Israel and Saudi Arabia run by a snow flake who thinks cold blooded murder is just about right when his feelings are hurt. Something really strange about the missile strikes on the four tanks in one of the pictures they released. The "marks" on the attacks "appear" to come from incoming from the North and the locations on the four tanks are within inches of each other! And there appears to be no leakage or fire marks around the supposed puncture holes! Something very strange about this! A targeting precision beyond belief! The Houties claim the did this yet a missile is found in Kiuait and supposedly Iran did this ! Why The Saudis didn't take down a single missile with their Patriot missile systems ! The third most important oil facility in the world was inadequately protected ! No radar images of incoming missiles, not even ground reports ! And the Saudis claim they will get some production back in short order ! Stinks of a False Flag by the Military Industrial Complex to drag the US into another stupid, useless and costly world war . The satellite photos provided look fake. The impact holes are all perfect - nicely rounded and placed in the same locations on the tanks, no sign of any spillage or fires, and the smoke plumes are all going different directions. All in the same location on all tanks. Accuracy never before witnessed. or was it just some nice photoshopping. I'm going with the photoshop. Also, the missile debris seems odd. A missile drops down to the sand, and doesn't make a mark on the ground ! even if it didn't detonate when it hit, it's still going to make an impact when it's debris falls to the earth. These parts all look like they were just laid there. Most definitely a False Flag. Was Bolton released because he wouldn't play along ? Even he probably knows this is a bad idea. All that said, take note of some things. Despite Yemen's Houthis themselves claiming responsibility for the precision strike using ten drones, unleashing explosions that rocked Abqaiq facility and the Khurais field, there were way more then 10 explosions within this attack. And the attack occurred in 5 different locations within the satellite image which showed 5 separate smoke plumes in the desert, the following morning. Of the 10 missiles claimed to have been fired from Yemen, at least 1 of them crashed in the desert. which means 7 of the remaining 9 missiles hit one target site alone! Plus there were other reports of loud jet engines and then 12 large explosions at the same site. first they were claiming they were "certain" attacks came from Iraqi soil, likely from Iran-backed militias acting as proxies. they've now changed their tune to line up behind the latest Saudi military assessment. Meaning: The U.S. really isn't "certain" about anything, and will change their "certainty" based on what the Saudis want them to say. It's all propaganda that the U.S. is passing on to Mainstream media . With all the CIA's high-tech gear, why does it take Pompeo over 48 hrs to manufacture "evidence" ! As soon as they are done creating the evidence, Pompeo will release it , they said . Yep, 48hrs needed to Photoshop some images. And wind the war machine up. What an amazing coincidence this attack was anyway . just when the banks and the frackers were afraid that oil would hit $20 a barrel . and that their trillion (quadrillion) dollar derivative positions would unwind . and that the dollar would immediately collapse . the evil Iranians callously strike the innocent House of Saud . and we have breathing room, again . who would have ever imagined that this scenario could possible play out !!! it's as ridiculous as planes striking the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Its great how nobody with even half a brain would believe them in just about ANYTHING anymore. The US goobermint,from the CONgress to the Prezident to the Supreme Soviet to the alphabet soup terror agencies to the Military Industrial Complex have lost whatever credibility they once had. Despite US officials repeatedly over the weekend claiming they were "certain" attacks came from Iraqi soil, likely from Iran-backed militias acting as proxies, they've now changed their tune to line up behind the latest Saudi military assessment. That's how you know this was a false flag. They had to scramble for best narrative, as a matter of fact they kept quiet for 24 hours trying to figure out how to frame this. They floated narratives that didn't work and modified as they went. All they knew was that they would of course blame Iran. When Trump said he was waiting to hear from Saudi it had nothing to do with Saudi being in charge, preposterous. They needed time. The big problem the US will have when releasing its evidence is that NOBODY BELIEVES A LIAR even if it's true. For every one fired Bolton, there are 10 sucking Pompeos surrounding the POTUS. War is inevitable folks, with all the unintended consequences. Another false flag event to get us into another senseless war.And this one is to defend the same people who attacked us in 2001.

Exclusive Footage : Saudi Arabia Oil Facility drone Attacks Live






drone attack saudi aramco Drone attacks on Saturday on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities have sparked a sharp jump in global oil prices. Oil futures opened 19 percent higher, jumping as much as $11.73 a barrel to $71.95, the highest single-day increase since futures trading began in 1988. Riyadh is racing to restore its oil production which has been slashed in half after drones targeted the heart of its energy industry. President Donald Trump has authorised the release of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to keep the markets well-supplied.

Keep an eye on The Middle East -- WW3 is about to start






In the aftermath of the most dramatic attack on Saudi oil facilities that we have ever seen, the price of oil has exploded higher. The Wall Street Journal is calling this attack “the Big One”, and President Trump appears to be indicating that some sort of military retaliation is coming. Needless to say, a direct military strike on Iran could spark a major war in the Middle East, and that would be absolutely devastating for the entire global economy. Just about everything that we buy has to be moved, and moving stuff takes energy. When the price of oil gets really high, that tends to create inflation because the price of oil is a factor in virtually everything that we buy. In addition, a really high price for oil also tends to slow down economic activity, and this is something that we witnessed just prior to the financial crisis of 2008. And if this crisis in the Middle East stretches over an extended period of time, it could ultimately result in a phenomenon known as “stagflation” where we have rapidly rising prices and weaker economic activity simultaneously. The last time we experienced such a thing was in the 1970s, and nobody really remembers the U.S. economy of the 1970s favorably. The damage caused by the “drone attacks” in Saudi Arabia was immense. According to the Daily Mail, “huge plumes of black smoke” could be seen pouring out of a key Saudi oil facility… Infernos raged at the plant in Abqaiq, Bugayg, and the country’s second largest oilfield in Khurais yesterday morning after Tehran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen fired a flurry of rockets. Huge plumes of black smoke could be seen coming from the oil facility. Houthi rebels in Yemen have publicly taken responsibility for the attacks, but they may or may not be telling the truth. At this point, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is completely rejecting that explanation, and he is claiming that there is “no evidence the strikes had come from Yemen”… Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for coordinated strikes on the heart of Saudi Arabia’s oil industry, saying they marked an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply.

Benjamin Fulford : Khazarian Mafia make final push for fake Armageddon with “Iran attack” on Saudia








Khazarian mafia make final push for fake Armageddon with “Iran attack” on Saudi Arabia By Benjamin Fulford . The Khazarian mafia, facing the imminent bankruptcy of their Washington DC Corporation, staged an “attack” on Saudi Arabia’s oil production in a desperate Hail Mary bid to start their long-planned World War III, multiple sources agree. The attack has a twofold purpose: Prevent U.S. bankruptcy by jacking up oil prices and forcing countries like China to buy U.S. oil; and Con the Iranian and U.S. militaries into starting World War III, bring on “Armageddon,” and pave the way for Jared Kushner to be “Messiah.” The first thing you need to understand is that Iran’s “Supreme Leader” Ali Khamenei and U.S. President Donald Trump are both employees of the Rothschild (satanic Red Shield) family. Those of you who are still drinking corporate-media Kool-Aid, please do some independent fact-checking. Lots of you know it is a matter of public record that each time Donald Trump went bankrupt as a businessman, he was bailed out by the Rothschilds. However, did you know that Ayatollah Khomeini, the leader of the Iranian revolution, was actually of British-Indian heritage and the son of a British Petroleum employee? The Rothschild-owned BP was then known as Anglo-Iranian Oil. So now we have Rothschild-slave President Trump tweeting, “Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit; are locked and loaded depending on verification.” Then we have a Rothschild-slave Iranian leader Khamenei ordering his Republican Guard Commander Amir Ali Hajizadeh to say Iran was “ready for a full-fledged war” and threaten that “America’s military bases and aircraft carriers, which are stationed up to 1,243 miles around Iran, were within range of Iranian missiles.” It also looks like both the Iranian and U.S. top leaders are campaigning for the reelection on September 17th of mass-murdering war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu before the Jewish people wake up and put him in jail where he belongs. Many in the U.S. military/intelligence community still cling to the hope that Trump is just going along with the Zionists as part of an elaborate ruse designed to remove them from control of the U.S. Pentagon sources thus say Trump “set up Bibi [Netanyahu] for defeat . continue reading at Benjamin Fulford dot net .

This Happened On Planet Earth...Sept. 2019...End Times Signs







Current Events Linked To Biblical Prophecies. Everything is unfolding just as the bible foretold. Wars, Volcanic Eruptions, Earthquakes, Extreme Weather, Christian Persecution, Violence and more! Matthew 24:3-14 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Red Alert -- Oil Prices Explodes 20% UP







Today, Brent climbed as much as 20% towards $70 per barrel and the US crude oil rose 10% to nearly $61. Historically, Brent crude oil reached an all time high of 147.50 in July of 2008. Remember what happened next? Who benefits ? Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Russia, US Oil Majors, State of Texas, OPEC, UK, US Shale Oil Companies , Norway . And Who suffers? China, Japan, India, Transportation costs and cost of goods, Commuters costs, Heating costs going into winter, Airlines and air travel . Iraq, Libya, Venezuela and Iran are a mess and cannot produce to make a difference. This will be the catalyst for the economic downturn. $100 oil is a recession catalyst for sure. SAUDI ENERGY GIANT ARAMCO IS READY FOR A TWO-STAGE IPO BUT THE TIMING IS UP TO THE GOVERNMENT, ITS CHIEF EXECUTIVE SAID TUESDAY, FLAGGING A POSSIBLE FOREIGN LISTING AS PART OF THE OFFERING. The price of oil will rise,because that'll It'll keep enough of the shale companies afloat to push Trump over the 2020 finish line where he can then safely allow the FED to meltdown. Donald Trump claimed in a tweet that the US has "reason to believe that we know the culprit," noting that Washington is "locked and loaded depending on verification" and is waiting to "hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack." Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed! Trump tweeted . 20% higher oil means 20% greater odds recession will now start sooner. This said, with higher oil and continuing China tariff woes, expect Forrest J. Gump to express his sleepless night anxiety tomorrow in the form of Fed bashing to try to get rates down to zero before Election Day. This was definitely a False flag designed to prop up the oil price. Imagine a camel jockey nation able to send "armed drones" into Saudi Arabia to do this with no detection. Imagine it. The US and Saudi Arabia are working to keep the US oil in business. Saudi Arabia was about to go broke because of low oil prices. And then suddenly, "Houthi Rebels" hit it with drones ! Too convenient. This was The Atlantis Report . Please like . share . and subscribe . thank you ...

Electric Car vs.Combustion Engine Car -- The Dawn of a New Era








The Demise of the combustion engine is near , the world is shifting to an electrifying future . The car industry is in the throes of an unprecedented change . Internal combustion engines have been ruling the streets for decades now. They power the majority of cars around the world. People get up in the morning, head for their cars, hit the ignition, and hope the engine comes to life so that they won’t be late for work. But technology is ever-advancing, and with that comes new ground-breaking ideas that have the potential to be revolutionary. Although electric cars have been here for more than a decade, it is only now through advancements in certain technologies that we are witnessing a surge in their production. The transition has just begun, but the move from Internal Combustion Engines vehicles to Electric will happen sooner and more quickly than most people suspect. Here are 6 factors that lead me to say this with such confidence . #1 China says so! , China is now the world's largest car market . Unsurprisingly, car manufacturers want to have access to this market. However, China has passed a law which requires any vehicle maker to obtain a new energy vehicle score of at least 10% by 2019, which rises to 12% by 2020, and on up to 20% of sales by 2025. As a result of this announcement, all the major OEM's have suddenly found Electric Vehicle religion. A slew of announcements has followed about the 10's of billions of dollars or Euros they are investing in their Electric Vehicle development programs and the partnerships or huge investments they are creating to secure their battery supply chain. The CEO of Porsche has even gone on record as saying that after 2030 all Porsche cars will be 100% electric. So, China has spoken, and the car manufacturers have listened. In the next 18 months, expect the number of electric vehicle models available to purchase, to increase significantly. #2 Battery Costs are falling . The main cost of an electric vehicle is the cost of the battery. These price of these batteries is falling significantly. Lithium-Ion batteries cost $1,000 per kWh in 2010. By 2017 that cost had fallen to $200 per kWh, by 2020 the cost of batteries will have fallen 90% in 10 years, and the price will continue to drop. #3 Battery capacity is increasing . Lithium-Ion batteries are increasing in energy density at a rate of 5-8% per annum. #4 Electric car batteries have a very long life . Contrary to what many believe, the batteries in electric vehicles don't degrade over time (or over miles/kilometers driven either). #5 Electric vehicles are more reliable. Another factor in favour of electric vehicles is that they are far more reliable. #6 Cheaper to Fuel . Electric vehicles are typically significantly cheaper to fuel as well ,unless you happen to live somewhere that has particularly cheap gas and extremely expensive electricity . Tesla is a renowned car manufacturer that is heavily pushing electric cars. Nothing in Tesla’s entire lineup smells of gasoline – it is strictly an electric car manufacturer. Several other car manufacturers including Mercedes, Audi, BMW, also produce electric vehicles among the overwhelming majority of their carbon-emitting variants. But why are electric cars gaining more popularity? To answer that, let us discuss the fundamental differences between the internal combustion engine and electric engine in an abstract view. Electric cars are much faster than their combustion counterparts. This is because electric cars can produce high torque from the get-go, whereas combustion engines reach that torque after gaining speed. It gives electric cars the edge in launch speed and helps reach 0 to 60 in shorter times. The lightweight factor, due to the absence of kilos worth of metal under the hood, plays a major role. And because there are no moving parts, the cost of maintenance is much lower – forget about changing oil – the biggest reoccurring cost will be the battery. Universal components such as the windshield and auto glass, wipers, tires will still need attention. Electric cars utilize Lithium-ion batteries that need a recharge. Due to the nature of Lithium-ion technology, its capacity to hold power degrades over time. Electric car owners can expect fewer miles over time. However, it has improved a lot. And Tesla is hard at work to create an alternative to Lithium-ion that will revolutionize even smaller devices like cell phones and laptops. Because electric cars do not rely on combustion, there is almost zero emission from the tail-pipe. Climate change is one of the biggest challenges looming over mankind. With ice caps melting at a rapid pace, countries around the world are experiencing a drastic change in their climates, and wildlife is getting affected too. In such times, the push for environment-friendly cars is becoming more important. . Under most circumstances, electric vehicles have a smaller carbon footprint than their conventional counterparts. Newer studies suggest that Electric Vehicles may also have a lower total cost of ownership (TCO), thanks to their much simpler design. Tesloop, a company that combines the features of Uber, bus services, and autonomous vehicles, published a case study showing that a Tesla Model S cost only $10,500 in maintenance and fuel costs, $3500 of which was to repair a headlight that was damaged by the driver. A comparable luxury vehicle like a Mercedes S-class costs about $86,000 in maintenance and fuel for the same mileage. The Tesla even has a lower base price - $68k, compared to the Mercedes' $96k - so all told, a Mercedes S Class owner will pay over $100k more than someone who purchased a Tesla Model S. But Electric cars have range limitations, especially in winter. Yet... There is a huge push to get them into the market. WHY??? I believe that the price of oil is about to start rising dramatically, as it appears that the Peak of Global production is about 10 years behind us, and the EROEI of oil is quickly worsening. The electric cars are going to be a temporary solution that will lessen the demand on oil and keep people moving around as gas prices start a relentless climb. This was The Atlantis Report .

Europe jumps on the De-Dollarization Bandwagon










Global tensions caused by economic sanctions and trade conflicts triggered by Washington have forced targeted countries to take a fresh look at alternative payment systems currently dominated by the US dollar. The globalist banksters have "weaponized" the petro-dollar to the point that many countries are trying to get away from the dollar. It will take a while, perhaps years, but the dollar is DEAD. Why Europe, China, and Russia are speeding up the process of de-dollarization can be understood only if the significance of the Iran deal is properly understood. Iran is, above all, a case study in what Washington can do to you if you expose yourself to the US dollar for better or for worse. Tehran would not, of course, be considered particularly US-friendly. But in order to participate in international trade, the Iranians had to rely on the US dollar and the SWIFT system, which handles international payments. SWIFT belongs to an international banking consortium and is even based in Belgium – within the EU. Nevertheless, the USA was able to build up enough pressure to exclude Iran from SWIFT. That’s what the governor of the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB), Ewald Nowotny, means when he says: “The United States is massively using the dollar as a weapon. And with every transaction in dollars one is obliged to follow the American sanctions against Iran, for example. Even if the USA is not directly involved in a trade. For example, when it comes to oil exports to a European country." Europe, China, Russia and many small countries set new initiatives every year to make themselves independent. And gold, too, plays a major role in this slow departure from the US dollar. But for the world financial system, none of their currencies offer a viable, fully-fledged alternative to the US dollar yet. China and Russia are buying European debt like crazy right now. They are also banking on that Europe will soon pivot eastward for large trade volumes. Many in Europe also expect this simply because it makes economic sense and even from a security point of view. The EU has no intention to start a war with Russia that is what the US and UK want. The US and UK are now quickly becoming less relevant. The list countries trying to rid themselves of the dollar should include Japan too. They are the second largest holder of U.S. Treasuries. Japan has been quietly dumping U.S. Treasuries, although they still use the U.S. dollar in international trade. What hasn't been said, most other countries are simply not buying U.S. Treasuries either. And the Saudis have threaten to dump their holdings, to keep the U.S. in line with its 1973 agreement of supporting the Saudis militarily. But, the Saudis and the UAE are toying with the idea of using the Chinese yuan in trade. At the last OPEC meeting in August, 9 of the 14 member nations of OPEC were wanting to pull away from the dollar. The Saudis were the major overriding holdout at that time. In 2016, Saudi Arabia became China’s top crude supplier, so it's very likely that China will get Saudi Arabia to trade oil in Yuans in the near future, which would represent a serious blow to the petrodollar. The dollar was doomed when it was weaponized. Obama weaponized the Dollar Reserve with Sanctions on Russia. That triggered the crash of the commodities markets as the dollar soared. The dollar should not have been weaponized. A Dollar reserve must be apolitical. When Trump came along he Sanctioned over 40% of the world population guaranteeing the demise of the dollar reserve. Obama Started it and Trump will finish it. The US dollar reserve was always supposed to be neutral. Gold for example is neutral. If you have gold you can trade it but with US SANCTIONS, if you have Dollars you may not be able to trade with the US and its poodles because Obama or Trump don't "like you". Maynard Keynes was afraid this would happen one day so he proposed the Bancor as a composite currency for Trade which was a basket of currencies rather than just the dollar. So now you have the WEAPONIZED DOLLAR. The weaponized Dollar is a National Security Risk for every nation that trades. Who knows when Trump will befriend you and you will have sanctions against you. At present Trump has sanctions on 30% of the World's population. His goal is to starve out the people as in the Hitler Stalingrad Siege. Thus De-Dollarization is the way countries can free themselves from the Tyrany of a weaponized dollar. Reserve Currency has always gone to the largest Trader. That is now China. Why? Because the largest trader can dictate the currency of the contract. Australia now trades coal and Iron ore in Yuan. But the Yuan does not have wide distribution that the dollar has. The dollar has been the primary reserve currency since 1945. Before that it was the pound, the French and the Spanish. China is in the final stages of making a digital yuan. This has the capacity to convert any currencies into instant digital Yuan. It is unnecessary to print actually currency as the dollar reserve has done over the last 74 years. They can do it instantly. Other forms of payment like Alipay or Paypal are also digital exchange platforms. So converting in and out of dollars is quite easy. The BitCoin is not a currency, it is akin to Traveler's checks so its speculation makes it unsuitable as a currency. People will lose their money on that speculation. What do dollars offer? Confidential cash transactions. Money laundering and universal acceptance. The cons: they may be manipulate, stolen, and weaponized. The dollar weaponization has become a national security risk for all nations of the world. So its demise is assured. The seeds have been planted. Also note the US reluctance to develop a crypto. Why? They want to spy on all your transactions in the US and yet retain laundering capability outside the USA. It is a weapon both against you in the USA and to the world outside the USA. There is now competition for the Dollar Reserve and each year the dollar weakens. The Euro could have replaced the dollar in about 1/3 of the world but the EU is dependent on the US with NATO. This political entanglement prevents that. Then we have petro giant Russia very interested in dumping the dollar, can exchange in oil and now the Yuan. A Digital Yuan is a pegged digital currency so its value will not fluctuate with currency movements. It can't be laundered. The next major crisis will kill the dollar. There are two things that can throw the U.S. dollar immediately in the tank: #1. The massive debt that the U.S. has accumulated and the continued devaluation of the dollar by printing more money. No one wants to be hanging on to a currency that keeps loosing its value, or accepting the U.S. to pay off its debt in funny money. #2. If someone convinces OPEC not to back the dollar any longer, and see what happens over-night. It won't be any creeping loss of confidence, but rather, everyone will be lining up rapidly to dump the dollar or anything else with a stamp of made in the USA on it. The globalist banksters have "weaponized" the petro-dollar to the point that many countries are trying to get away from the dollar. It will take a while, perhaps years, but the dollar is DEAD. These banksters, who are supposed to be so smart, are actually stupid. They did it to themselves. This Was The Atlantis Report . Please Like . Share . and Subscribe . Thank You ....

Peter Schiff : Trump is The Bonehead









Donald Trump has been badgering Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell for months, begging for lower interest rates. Yesterday, he took things to another level, saying that the “boneheads” at the Fed need to push rates into negative territory. In his podcast, Peter Schiff said negative interest rates are boneheaded. Trump used a pair of tweets to push for negative interest rates. The Federal Reserve should get our interest rates down to ZERO, or less, and we should then start to refinance our debt. INTEREST COST COULD BE BROUGHT WAY DOWN, while at the same time substantially lengthening the term. We have the great currency, power, and balance sheet………The USA should always be paying the the lowest rate. No Inflation! It is only the naïveté of Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve that doesn’t allow us to do what other countries are already doing. A once in a lifetime opportunity that we are missing because of ‘Boneheads.’ Peter said he can’t think a more boneheaded thing to do than to push interest rates negative. Trump is basically saying negative rates would allow the federal government to refinance its debt. It could roll over short-term debt into longer termed bonds and lock up the low rates. But as Peter pointed out, interest rates are already near historic lows. If President Trump actually cared about refinancing the national debt and lengthening the maturity of the debt – the duration – and locking in these low interest rates, lock them in! They’re already super low.” Peter said if the Fed did cut rates to zero or lower, he thinks yields on long-term bonds would actually start to go up because the market would begin factoring in higher inflation. What is stopping Trump from doing what he claims he wants to do but for the boneheads at the Fed ! Talk is cheap. Tweets are cheap, in particular. What about actions ! Actions speak a lot louder than tweets. And Trump’s actions are the opposite. During the Trump presidency, the average maturity on the national debt has actually been shortened. So, instead of locking in these super low, historically low long-term interest rates, Trump has done the opposite. He has been borrowing more on the short-run and not borrowing on the long-run.” The bottom line is that Trump could do what he says he wants to do right now. The “boneheads” at the Fed aren’t stopping him. Peter said what’s really stopping him is political calculation. If the president actually did refinance the national debt with long-term bonds, long-term interest rates would go up. That would undermine the housing market and the economy.

False Flag Attack on The Largest Oil Plant in The World in Saudi Arabia !?





What appears to be the most devastating Yemen Houthi rebel attack on Saudi Arabia to date, took place overnight on the world's largest oil processing facility as stunning videos emerged of massive explosions rocking the major Aramco Buqyaq facility. Saudi Arabia is shutting down about half of its oil output after apparently coordinated drone strikes hit Saudi production facilities, in what Yemen’s Houthi rebels described as one of their largest-ever attacks inside the kingdom. In a sharp, if perhaps not unexpected, escalation, US Secretary of State - now without John Bolton by his side - tweeted at 4pm on Saturday, that contrary to earlier reports, "there is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen" and instead accused Iran of launching today's "unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply" which has now indefinitely taken offline as much as 5 million barrel a day in Saudi crude production. In a follow up tweet, Pompeo said that he calls "on all nations to publicly and unequivocally condemn Iran’s attacks" which is odd as not even Saudi Arabia accused Iran of today's aggression (which many speculated could have been a Saudi false flag in hopes of sending the price of oil soaring ahead of the Aramco IPO). Pompeo concluded that "the United States will work with our partners and allies to ensure that energy markets remain well supplied and Iran is held accountable for its aggression." Will this pivot away from Houthis to Iran as the "origin" of the attack be sufficient grounds to re-inflame tensions between the US and Iran, especially following last week's news that one of the reasons Bolton was fired was due to his hard-line stance on Iran even as Trump was willing to sit down with the Tehran regime for negotiations. Since the deep state stands to make much more money from war rather than peace, our guess is that the answer is a resounding "yes." Did you hear that, friends, Saudi Arabia had half it's oil-production capacity was taken out by a DRONE BOMBING from a bunch of barefooted goat-herders ! What's next ! Are the desert-nomad rebels gonna launch ICBMs from their nuclear submarines ! Here's how "Yemeni" this really was: as the American or Israeli drone pilot maneuvered over the target he instructed a Yemeni guy standing next to him to "press this red button here when I tell you", ha ha ha ! And along comes snake in the grass Pompeo, instantly prepared and suspiciously eager to throw up his hands and conveniently defer blame to the "rebel group". oh what a surprise ! How many SALES CALLS do you think Saudi Arabia will get from American "anti-drone technology" contractors before world financial markets open and tumble on Monday . Brush-lip Bolton may be out, but your stealth villain is actually the double-dealing, smarm-smiling "Porky" Pompeo ! Don't mention it's just another example of criminal insanity historically with some new twists, higher populations of corrupt criminal law/rights violating deceivers, their helpers and some new twists on misusing secret knowledge and technologies .Yet another wipe out/clean up. Unwise is unwise does. Lies,deterioration, self punishments, self brought misery, conquering and destruction. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a deceiver, or has been deceived. Let me guess: the Saudis received a TIP-OFF to the imminent attack, with just enough time to prevent real damage and make for rapid repair, and for the tipping party to receive CREDIT, but yet not enough time to stop or defend against the attack, so that it could go forward unimpeded and "register" as a terror attack .! If I were the Saudis' re-insurer , I'd be looking hard at whether or not they were in fact IN ON IT, helping plan the attack, practically painting targets on the side of equipment they wanted to replace anyway, but now could finance for free with a "terrorism" damage claim -- brilliant ! Oil is expected to hit $100 a barrel when the markets open Monday morning . So who stands to benefit from higher oil prices . Let's recap what happened last week . Bolton got fired . The democrats getting a judge to block Trump Impeachment hearings. Saudi oilfields got attacked. Democratic representatives just returned from Iran. Funny how this all happened right AFTER Bolton was fired! So could this be a false flag to control the economy and oil prices. Is the US playing both sides? It is really pretty odd that some desert nomads can attack the largest oil field that the USA protects heavily . And with a sophisticated drone of all things . We know that certain neocon groups , foreign policy think tanks have been pushing for war and regime change of the Iranian government since 1980 and every POTUS since Reagan with the exception of Obama and President Trump have been doing everything within their political string pulling to goat Iran in to a war. It wasn't Iran that fiance, manpower or logistics that pulled off the attacks on Sept 11, 2001. It in fact was The Saudi's. Who have very close ties to the Bush family and Dick Cheney. It's also the Saudi's that were and likely still are financing and equipping ISIS terror army that have been wrecking Iraq and Syria the last near 10 to 12 years. Not Iran! The who bullshit invasion and overthrow of the Iraqi government was a sham too! Quick, let's check to see who made the most money by shorting the stock market or from the increase in oil . I would bet one dollar a name comes up "George Soros" or someone on his payroll. Soros is Kuschner's business buddy, George Soros funded Kuschners start up company Cadre with $250 Million Buckaroos according to older news articles and wikipedia. Most of these people are buddy buddy with Saudi Arabia and sell the Saudis billions of dollars in weapons, The Bushes, the Clintons, Obama, Trump, the UK, France, Germany and even Putin the Rusky . All "secret society" stuff . its always You will know them by "What they do, not what they say" How many billions in petroleum futures contracts do you think Secretary Pompeo is delivering with a big apple-cheeked grin for his one-percenter "crony capitalist" kick-backers with THIS ONE ! we have been salivating over Iran since the Shah was overthrown in the late 70's. Houthis saying it was them doing it , is like us finding the perfect passport on the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks . Aramco is a Saudi/US joint operation. It's basically a compound with super tight security. This is definitely a Saudi/US false flag. Now they have a reason to start World war 3. with Bolton gone , the deep state had to do SOMETHING to instigate war with Iran. War by Deception! This has False Flag written all over it.

The Price Of Gold Just Hit A Record High in Euros







48 hours ago, the European Central Bank announced a bonanza stimulus package: interest rate cuts, money printing, quantitative easing, the whole nine yards. Europe’s economic growth has ground to a halt. The German economy actually shrank last quarter, according to official statistics. So the European Central Bank is throwing everything including the kitchen sink at this problem. Their stimulus package is like a monetary defibrillator trying to shock Europe’s economies back to growth. So the central bank’s solution is , If what you’re doing isn’t working, do more of the same! Meanwhile gold broke through the 1400 Euro an ounce mark . I’ve been talking about this for months, encouraging you to buy gold and silver. But this isn’t over. There’s a lot more monetary insanity to come from the United States and Europe… so gold and silver prices likely still have a lot of room to rise. Rather than say the price of gold hit an all time high it would be more accurate to say the value of the Euro hit an all time low. Gold may be a “barbarous metal” but the slow trudge towards ZERO value of all the world’s fiat currencies can still be measured against it. One big driver of gold demand is actually coming from foreign central banks and governments. They can see what’s happening to the US dollar and euro, and they’re keen to diversify their reserve assets away from negative interest rates. This is a powerful trend that could continue sending prices higher. So it’s still a reasonable time to buy physical gold and silver. This has been a train wreck in slow motion. If you aren't buying precious metals with savings you get what's coming to you. Anyone that is obsessed with the daily fluctuations in the price of gold and silver do not know what gold and silver is about. Go right ahead and rely on fiat money and when the shit hits the fan see which you have left. Those with gold and silver will always have gold and silver which will always be money. It's not really that complicated, don't try to over complicate it and don't buy precious metals to make a profit that's not going to happen , and who cares whether that happens or not. It will always be money and your paper won't be. It as simple as that . Americans for the most part are going to be caught swimming naked. Gold is doing quite well in the general populace of many nations. This Was The Atlantis Report . Please Like . Share . and Subscribe . Thank You ....

Matt Taibbi : The latest Russian Spy Story is a Load of BS






Matt Taibbi Blasts The Smolenkov Saga As "Latest Pile Of BS Dumped On Us By Intel Agencies" in his latest article written via Untitledgate blog, He wrote: When I was 20, I studied at the Leningrad Polytechnical Institute, in the waning days of the Soviet empire. Most of the Russians I met were amusingly free of stress caused by following news. Why would they bother? Bull-factories like Rossiskaya Gazeta and Leningradsaya Pravda were basically collections of dreary government news releases rewritten to sound like news reports. Taibbi explained. I saw newspapers in Leningrad shredded into slivers of toilet paper, used in place of curtains in dorm rooms, even stuffed into overcoat linings as insulation. But I can’t recall a Russian person actually reading a Soviet newspaper for the content. That’s how useless its “news” was. Taibbi added . We’re headed to a similar place. The cable networks, along with the New York Times and Washington Post increasingly act like house organs of the government, and in particular the intelligence agencies. An episode this week involving a tale of a would-be American spy “exfiltrated” from Russia solidifies this impression. Seldom has a news story been more transparently fraudulent. The story was broken by CNN Monday, September 9th, under the headline, “Exclusive: US extracted top spy from inside Russia in 2017” . The story told us our spy agencies successfully penetrated Russian government at the highest levels (although apparently not well enough to foresee or forestall the election interference campaign the same agencies spent the last three years howling about). We were also told the agencies saved an invaluable human source back in 2017, and that the story came from inside the Trump administration. So great was this spy of ours, we were told, that he had “access to Putin” and “could even provide images of documents on the Russian leader’s desk.” . It’s a characteristic of third world countries to have the intelligence world and the media be intertwined enough that it’s not always clear whether the reporters and the reported-about are the same people. When you turn on the TV in Banana Republics, you’re never sure which group is talking to you. This story wasn’t leaked to tell the public an important story about a lost source in the Kremlin, but more likely as damage control, to work the refs as investigators examine the origins of the election interference tale. Matt Taibbi ended . Anything at this point about the Russia hoax is part of the disinformation campaign. The truth of the hoax has outstripped their propaganda capability. So all that is left of to seed doubt and confusion to obscure the facts. This isn’t news it’s just tabloid spy BS . Forget about CNN, Washington Post, Clapper, Comey, etc. All the politicians we voted for are on board with blaming Russia for everything and re-kindling the cold war. All of them. They've never heard of the murdered staffer and want Assange gone. They all agree. "The Mainstream media tells 'a' story, not 'the' story." They all are. They are only there to fool the naive, gullible and stupid - the government's favourite serfs . This Was The Atlantis Report . Please Like . Share . and Subscribe . Thank You ....

Bank Panics coming to America -- Richard Wolff


The Last Time Banks Did This... They Caused A Financial Crash w/Richard Wolff





Banks make their money from depositors by lending to others. Banks lend out almost all the money they have on deposit and this means that there could be a bank panic if a lender can’t retrieve their deposits. The banks are supposed to hold a percentage of every dollar in reserves, which means they have a large pile of money. What happens if the government wants to stimulate the economy, by telling the banks they can lend out part of their held deposits or all of it? The last time the banks were able to lend out their reserves... we found ourselves in a global financial crash! Dr. Richard Wolff explains to Thom how all this works.

Red Alert -- Oil could Hit $100 ! Half Of Saudi Oil Output Shut After Drone Strikes








Saudi Arabia oil facilities engulfed in flames after drone attacks The world's largest oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia has been hit in a drone attack from The Yemeni Houthi Rebels . Yemen's rebels have said they were behind the strikes on Saudi Arabia's plant. Saudi Arabia is now shutting down about half of its oil output after apparently coordinated drone strikes hit Saudi production facilities, in what Yemen’s Houthi rebels described as one of their largest-ever attacks inside the kingdom. The production shutdown amounts to a loss of about five million barrels a day,roughly 5% of the world’s daily production of crude oil. The kingdom produces 9.8 million barrels per day. the Saudis have stopped short of acknowledging the Houthis were behind the attack, which Riyadh is also likely to blame on Iran, which has lately promised that if it can't export its oil then "no one will". It remains unclear according to early statements whether there were injuries or casualties in the twin oil facility attacks. The impact on global oil markets - closed for the weekend - could be significant given the Khurais field produces about 1% of all the world's oil (estimated at over million barrel per day and reserves of over 20 Billion barrel per day) and more importantly Abqaiq, which based on the stunning local footage bore the brunt of the drone attacks, remains the most crucial of the kingdom's processing plants. Located 37 miles southwest of Aramco’s Dhahran headquarters, it controls all the flows from fields like the giant Ghawar field to coastal export terminals like Ras Tanura. Saudi Aramco describes the Buqyaq facility as "the largest crude oil stabilization plant in the world." Meanwhile, the United States was quick to "strongly condemn" the attack amid already soaring tensions in the gulf after a summer of "tanker wars" and Iranian threats of walking away altogether from the 2015 nuclear deal. The U.S. envoy to Saudi Arabia issued a statement saying, “The U.S. strongly condemns today’s drone attacks against oil facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais. These attacks against critical infrastructure endanger civilians, are unacceptable, and sooner or later will result in innocent lives being lost.” and it begins.... as Central Bankers have plowed everyone into stocks..... the black swan event . How convenient... right when oil prices were set to plummet... US shale oil producers must be dancing with joy. And relief! Many of the remaining players were on the verge of bankruptcy anyway. The price of gas was already skyrocketing up Friday afternoon. This was obviously planned and coordinated with top US goons. This is how they are going to start mandating agenda 2030 by martial law. Global recession on extreme oil prices. US depression guaranteed. This Was The Atlantis Report . Please Like . Share . And Subscribe . Thank You ....

Max Keiser : A Black September in France .








In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the odd similarity of protestors in Hong Kong and in France having their eyes targeted by ‘sublethal’ stun grenades. They review the article in GQ Magazine by Robert Chalmers exploring the ‘real victims’ of the ‘yellow vest revolution’ and note the connection between the dozens of protestors who have lost an eye while the online surveillance state also seeks to control what we see and read. In the second half, Max interviews independent journalist Paul Moreira about the Yellow Vest movement in France. What did he see during his many weeks on the frontline with his journalism? They discuss the economic and political demands of the protestors and the violence with which those demands have been met. They also place the protests within the other protests taking place in various regions of the world.

Russia to only borrow in Euros & Yuan , not in Dollars, says Finance Minister









According to the First Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Anton Siluanov , Russia does not plan to attract foreign loans anymore this year Russia will not take out loans in US dollars for the remainder of this year and the whole of 2020, turning instead to the yuan and euro, according to the Finance Ministry. “This year we have no plans to borrow any more on foreign markets, we have fulfilled our program and even overfulfilled it. Next year, we’ll see. Probably it will be not only in euro but maybe in Chinese yuan,” Siluanov stated. Russia does not plan to attract foreign loans anymore this year and in 2020 it will borrow in euros or yuan but not in dollars, Anton Siluanov said on Thursday. "We will borrow in currencies other than the dollar. This year we have no plans to borrow on foreign market anymore, we have fulfilled our program and even overfulfilled it. Next year we’ll see. Probably it will be not only in euros but maybe in Chinese yuans," Siluanov said. In March, the Finance Ministry issued Eurobonds worth $3 bln with the maturity date in March 2035 and additionally issued Eurobonds worth 750 mln euros with the maturity date in 2025. In June, the Finance Ministry placed additional Eurobonds worth $1.5 bln with the maturity date in 2029 and worth $1 bln with the maturity date in 2035. Earlier, it was revealed that Moscow and Beijing are working on a new way of cutting their reliance on the US dollar, as Russia plans to issue its first yuan-denominated bond. The move is aimed at assisting both countries’ economies in dealing with US tariffs and sanctions. The proposal will also allow Moscow to extend its list of foreign creditors. While Chinese investors do not buy Russia’s ruble-denominated bonds, the launch of the yuan bonds would give them an opportunity to invest in Russian state debt. We, the USA, should be more like Russia. We should just mind our own business and not stick our nose where it doesn’t belong, like Syria, Iraq, Niger, Ukraine, United Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, Hong Kong ,Perhaps the first step is nationalized Federal Reserve, it is unthinkable to put a country money control on private hands .

Warren Buffett : Negative Rates 'Distort' Everything






Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway CEO said in the annual letter that Berkshire Hathaway is obviously an interest rate sensitive company and therefore consequently when rates go up the company will do very well.In an interview with CNBC , Buffett, explains what he is telling people about market volatility and shares his thoughts on the impact of negative interest rates. well what's happened with interest rates is really extraordinary, said Buffet . You can go back and read everything Keynes wrote and everything Adam Smith wrote or Ricardo wrote or Galbraith wrote or Paul Samuelson wrote ,you name it , you won't see a word in my view , At least I've never seen , about sustained negative interest rates . I mean we are doing something the world hasn't seen . it does have the effect of making all assets more valuable . interest rates are like gravity in valuations . If interest rates are nothing you know values can be almost infinite .if interest rates are extremely high that's a huge gravitational pull on values and we had that in the early eighties . so we have gone into this period when Berkshire Hathaway is sitting with billions of dollars of euros in an insurance company that we have in Europe . and they will bear a negative rate . We would be better off if we had a big mattress in Europe and we just stick all this stuff in it , if I could just find the right person who I trusted to sleep on the mattress you know that's what we would do . if we have a billion of euros at minus thirty five basis points, that's would be three and a half million euros a year that it's costing us just to have that . well that means you don't want to collect your receivables, why would you want to cut your receivables . It goes into a negative , it distorts everything . Now there's a good reason why they're doing it , but nobody has really gone through an extended period like this . we do not know how this movie plays out . We thought when we started it , that it would end fairly soon ,and then Europe in particular needed further jolts in the arm . They've extended it and we can't get too far away from it ,we talked about that a year ago the problems of this country raising rates while Europe was at negative rates and what that might do to the dollar and what that does to trade and when trade does the business . In economics the most important thing to remember it's important in other areas of life as well , but after anything that happens if somebody tells you this is going to happen , you got to say , and then what . it's like in physics or anything else there's always and then what the question .I always ask myself , and then what ... and in terms of sustained low interest rates when I say and then what ...., I don't know the answer ,Buffet explained . Zero rates, which central banks set to try to reinvigorate their economies, have long been a problem for savers and retirees, who cant get a return on their interest-bearing accounts. Buffett weighed in on that dilemma. Its not just a problem for insurance companies, its a problem for retirees, its a problem for anyone that's stuck with fixed investments and finds that their income is a pittance . And that was something that wasn't in their calculation 50 years ago Buffett said. The worlds most famous investor, who prides himself on focusing on productive assets, just admitted that money under the mattress is the only way to go in a negative-rate environment. There could be a point where you'd really want to start withdrawing currency. That would be an interesting point, if currency in a bank is worth less than currency in your hands or in a mattress, that could produce something in the way of behavior that nobody's even anticipated. In other words, bank runs . Well, if the deposits aren't doing anything there and, and they charge you for having them there, you know, I might contemplate taking them out. But in negative-rate setting, there is one place better than a mattress for your money: and that is , gold. The biggest knock on gold is that it is a non-interest-bearing asset. With banks and bonds providing at least some return on cash, why risk putting money into gold when the price can fall? That was the argument of golds critics. But now that banks and bonds are providing negative yields, gold actually looks great in comparison given its upside potential. The World Gold Council released a paper arguing that demand for gold may structurally increase as negative-rate policies spread. Gold returns in periods of low rates are historically twice as high as their long-run average, The World Gold Council said. Investors may benefit from increasing their gold holdings up to 2.5 times, depending on the asset mix, even under conservative assumptions for gold. Warren Buffett has never been a fan of gold, although he once had a massive position in silver. However, if push comes to shove and negative rates come to the United States, Buffett might do well to consider removing his cash from underneath his mattress and trading it for both gold and silver.

The Strange Death of American Civility: Pt1 - Democrats vs Republicans





The United States seems more disunited than at any point in recent history - its politics so undermined by partisan divisions that consensus on almost anything is impossible to achieve. Toxic partisanship between Democrats and Republicans - the nation's two main parties - has soared under President Donald Trump's administration - worsening since the release of then-Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on his investigation of Trump and Russian interference in the 2016 elections that brought him to power. But "Trump isn't the cause of a lot of the discord that we're seeing", says Lilliana Mason, an author and professor at the University of Maryland. "He probably makes it worse. But one of the things he has done is actually to bring out into the open these divides that have been accumulating between the parties." The sorting of people into two camps has fuelled stereotyping and distrust. Too often, the allegiance to one's own side makes the prospect of compromise with opponents almost unthinkable. The US is now so polarised by the distrust that a 2018 survey recorded 70 percent of Republicans and 60 percent of Democrats as believing the opposing party posed a serious threat to the US. "Each side is so convinced that they are absolutely correct, that they are morally and truly correct, and that the other side is dangerous," Mason says. So what has weakened the bonds that once held this huge democracy together - and where could the discord lead? In the first of two in-depth reports, People & Power's Bob Abeshouse investigates why the US is a nation so ill at ease with itself.

In Trump's Economy : Joblessness Soaring & Layoffs Rise 38 Percent







In Trump's Economy : Layoffs Rise 38 Percent – Highest Level For August Since 2009 We continue to get more numbers that indicate that U.S. economic activity is really starting to slow down. According to Challenger, Gray & Christmas, the number of layoffs in the United States was 38 percent higher in August than it was in July. A 38 percent increase in one month is more than just a little bit startling, and many believe that if this momentum continues we could soon be facing an avalanche of job losses similar to what we witnessed in 2008. And without a doubt, all of the other economic numbers that have been rolling in lately also confirm that the U.S. economy is heading into harder times. But is our country ready to handle another major economic downturn?

How is Game Theory applied in Economics?






Game theory is the process of modeling the strategic interaction between two or more players in a situation containing set rules and outcomes. While used in a number of disciplines, game theory is most notably used as a tool within the study of economics. The economic application of game theory can be a valuable tool to aide in the fundamental analysis of industries, sectors and any strategic interaction between two or more firms. Here, we'll take an introductory look at game theory and the terms involved, and introduce you to a simple method of solving games, called backwards induction. As an introduction to Game Theory, an important concept in Economics, It is actually highly mathematical - another reason it's so attractive to academics, who seem to be turning economics into applied maths. Economists study how societies allocate resources between competing uses. Conventionally, they study how this is achieved by the movement of prices paid in markets bringing supply and demand into equilibrium. The standard model assumes the buyers and sellers in those markets are each so small they have no effect on the prices being paid. In reality, many markets are dominated by a few big companies which do have the ability to influence the price. So game theory began as an alternative way of studying the behaviour of the many ''oligopolies'' that characterise modern economies. Game theory is the study of how people or firms behave in ''strategic'' situations - those where each player in a market, when deciding what to do, has first to consider how others might respond to that action. So, like a game of chess, the ''games'' economists study have a set of players, a set of moves or strategies available to those players and a range of ''payoffs'' (consequences) of each combination of strategies. Economists use game theory to describe, predict and explain people's behaviour. They've used it to study auctions, bargaining, merger pricing, oligopolies and much else. Unlike conventional analysis, game theory allows the possibility of ''multiple equilibria'' - more than one possible outcome the participants regard as satisfactory. And it studies ''decision-making under uncertainty'' - having to make decisions without knowing what the future holds. Game theory is also able to study co-operative games (where players may form coalitions in competing with other players) as well as non-co-operative games (where all players compete as individuals). For the most part, however, game theory retains the conventional (unrealistic) assumption of ''rationality'' - people know what's in their best interests and that's what they do. Game theory began with simple two-player, ''zero-sum games'' - if I win, you must lose. It's moved on to multiple-player, positive-sum games - games where all players may gain because of the ''gains from trade'' (exchange) between people. The classic game is ''the prisoner's dilemma'', where two prisoners must separately decide whether to co-operate with the other (by admitting nothing) or to ''defect'' (dob in the other in the hope of a lighter sentence). It shows why, in the absence of trust between them, the prisoners may choose not to co-operate (the ''rational'' choice for each), even though it's in their best interests to do so. This game is so famous because it studies the great problem of civilised societies: how to deal with ''free-riders'' - people who take advantage of others' willingness to co-operate. Game theory seeks to explain how people act in everyday economic situations that involve strategizing, so as to get a good outcome for themselves. In the simplest form of game theory, one person loses and another wins, leading to a zero-sum equilibrium. However, in real life this is not always the case, and everyday situations can be more complex. Thus John Nash, the famous mathematician, came up with his own contribution to game theory in the form of the Nash equilibrium that looked at a broader range of outcomes. For instance, two parties could co-operate so as to get the optimal outcome for both of them, resulting in a win-win outcome. To get to a Nash equilibrium, each person makes decisions taking into account the other person’s possible actions. It’s not just thinking about your own move, but also about factoring in your opponent’s possible responses and how best you can get the outcome you want given your opponent’s likely reactions. An equilibrium comes about in this context when both parties don’t have anything to gain by changing their strategies. Nash was awarded a Nobel prize for his insights on game theory. Let come to your Question Regarding the Banking . Lets take example of ATM in Bank . ow game theory help to get the better Location for the ATM Machine. Few banks have explored the science behind ATM locations. Part of this is practical: When determining ATM locations, most banks use more general geographic and demographic divisions such as ZIP codes and municipal boundaries. While these divisions tell you where people live, work or shop in a particular area, they don’t get down to the granular level necessary to predict traffic flows, or explain how people get from one point to another. And when site selection is determined by distribution teams that are also responsible for channel performance, decisions are often dominated by personal bias and conventional wisdom rather than firm data about traffic flows, user behavior and competitive dynamics.

The European Central Bank’s Introduces Negative Interest Rates - Global Recession Looming






guess what European Central Bank announced today , that they would slash interest rates to a negative 0.5% . Good Gosh , you heard that right ,interest rates in Europe are going negative . so borrow away corporations it's almost like free money ,but if you're just a regular guy who's out there trying to save for his retirement good luck .remember the expression the dollar saved is a dollar earned .well now it's actually less than a dollar earned seriously ,now what does it say it says what we've been telling you that the global economy is slowing down, and there is a recession right around the corner, and by the way the President of the United States is all for it yeah , Mister Trump came out today and said he wants the Fed here in the United States to follow suit and go into negative interest rates, if need be here as well, which of course would be great for his political prospects and certainly in the short term anyway ,but not necessarily good for the country and certainly not in the long haul . The president the United States is saying bring them on I love it. well Trump is a real estate guy I don't know what else you can say but you know nothing good can come from this ,and I was little distressed to hear Alan Greenspan the other day say well you know if negative interest rates come to the United States if the US Fed goes into that territory like the ECB has, that's no big deal .when in fact it's a very big deal ,the idea of paying people to borrow money is something , if we just think about it if we just sit back and think about it logically for a second ,no one would ever give you a thousand dollars today in exchange for nine hundred dollars let's say a year from now, and the reason they wouldn't do that is because people want to make money first of all ,and because in that year there's some uncertainty ,you might die you might default the person who lend you the money might die ,so in exchange of that uncertainty they want to be paid ,they want eleven hundred dollars back from you in the year,so there's no situation in the human experience ,in human history, without central banks and government Treasuries intervening, there's no situation in human history where negative interest rates would just arise spontaneously .so we know that this is government machinations ,and what I fear is that this is basically clown world ,but it's masquerading is this kind of technical analysis by these academic economists who know more than us ,and is anything but what I fear is that they're making this decision because they truly fear on a apocalyptic situation coming, in other words if they don't head off this recession where they may have already used all the tools to get us out of that recession ,things are gonna be really ugly . so it's to the point now where they're trying to do everything possible to throw the kitchen sink at it, to try and stop it from happening . could I possibly be right? I hope I'm not ,well I think that's what they did in 2008 after the crash . In previous market slowdowns or recessions or depressions the Fed has cut the interest rates, generally in the range of four to six points ,but interest rates were positive there was room to do so . But today when interest rates it's only about 2% , it's hard to cut for points .you go negative and the difference between let's say going from 4 percent to 2 percent is actually much greater than going from 2% to negative 2% . in other words going into negative territory is a type of Hail Mary pass it goes against everything we know about economics and how you actually build a prosperous society , which is by producing things not by trying to stimulate everybody to buy stuff .you can't build the society on consumption if you could the Fed would just give everyone a hundred thousand dollars tomorrow and magically we'd be richer of course we wouldn't be richer there'd be no new goods and services out there so this is absolutely a Hail Mary pass .that doesn't mean that people at the ECB or the Fed are bad people, they might honestly believe that this is what's required to save the economy but the long term it can't work .well the Fed just put a green haze around your head .by the way I seriously fear that what's going on right now it will actually cause much bigger problems down the line. it absolutely will ,because you don't solve a debt crisis with more debt .the whole world is awash in far more debt than it was in 2008 ,which we thought was this great unraveling where we should have had bankruptcies and insolvencies and we should have had assets shifting around from bankrupt companies and bankrupt investment firms to more productive companies and investment firms .instead the Fed just re-inflate it , made it bigger . Today we have more sovereign debt, we have more corporate debt ,we have more household debt, we have more individuals in debt . but you see that ever happens it's primarily bigger not smaller than last time , but that's the point . the Fed is speaking out of both sides of its mouth , on the one hand Jerome Powell is saying he doesn't really see a recession and that all the at least ostensible numbers are good GDP unemployment etc ... but if we're in this rip-roaring economy as Mister Trump says we are , why are we cutting interest rates it makes no sense whatsoever . this is a wealth transfer from the poor to the rich from middle class to the rich . The average guy or gal who's trying to save for retirement look it's safe investment when you're making a point or two points in a money market or a simple CD or savings account that's why so much money has gone into equity that's why people are buying Amazon because little old ladies have to chase yield they used to get 10% at the bank . Our dads your dad mine and moms always told us , save your money son do everything right , be responsible ,may be you have something for later on .And we did that and now our government seems to be telling us no that's stupid just let the corporation's buy a bunch of stuff practically for free and they'll loan anyone of everything ,and it doesn't matter what you have that seems to be the message . That’s the reason they want to get rid of cash transactions so they can charge interest to people for keeping their money in the bank, they want a world run by corporations and one bank, they will have total control over humanity, they can make your bank account go puff. They want to make cash illegal so you can't withdraw your money in the form of cash. Then the bank can steal your money slowly by negative interest. The Truth is we've been in a recession since 2007 now heading for a DEPRESSION AROUND THE WORLD and they know it. This was The Atlantis Report . Please Like. Share. And Subscribe .

How the New World Order was made



BRUSSELS - The year is 1944, and the end of World War II is in sight. The Soviets and Americans are racing to capture Berlin, and the Cold War is already beginning to take shape. Europe was either going to come under Soviet occupation or become a vassal of the United States. In a small American town called Bretton Woods, 730 representatives from 44 countries negotiated a new set of rules, procedures and regulations to craft a new monetary system. For Washington, this was a historic opportunity to claim the mantle of leadership and design a world order.

Medical Debt Is Crushing Many American Families






American families are confronting harsh financial realities of late, from rising unemployment and sluggish wage growth to high food and fuel costs and tight credit. Added to these worries are soaring health care costs, and the severe erosion of adequate health coverage. The Trump administration’s efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act are making health insurance less affordable and less accessible, and will almost certainly increase the number of Americans struggling with medical debt. State policymakers can and should act now to protect consumers from crushing medical debt and aggressive debt collection practices. Medical debt accrues when a patient must pay for care that isn’t covered by insurance or is only partly covered. It is one of the most common types of consumer debt. A Consumer Financial Protection Bureau study found that 20 percent of Americans have at least one medical debt collection item in their credit reports, and more than half of collection items on credit reports are for medical debts. To collect these debts, health care providers and collection agencies sometimes use aggressive collection techniques, ranging from reporting the debt to credit reporting agencies to making frequent phone calls demanding repayment or even garnishing patients’ wages or filing liens on their homes. when a doctor sees you in the hospital they get $30. to lay you in the bed while physician examines you, minimum $1000. that's only the bed, nothing else, anything extra is another charge . if you have appendectomy for appendicitis . The hospital gets $60000 to $200000 the surgeon $300. all money flows to large corporations-insurance companies and hospitals. hospital charges $50 for a single Tylenol pill. Insurance company charges you $1000/month for nothing. when you go into hospital, its your deductible, co-pay, non covered charges. not only are you cheated by large corporations doctors cheated worse than you. Government programs do nothing but make everything cost more. Healthcare wasn't so ridiculously costly until the 1970s when Medicare and Medicaid took off and Richard Nixon completely severed the dollar from the gold standard to pay for those programs and more. Obamacare does nothing but makes matters worse, not to mention Republican's Medicare Part D, that expanded Medicare by many billions. These are massive taxes and you don't get anything affordable by taxing what's productive in order to subsidize what's not productive. Health insurance is a scam now, that's what happens when you allow the insurance industry to write your health care reform. No one would have imagined even just 10 years ago, that $2000 deductables would be the norm. Obamacare absolutely destroyed the ability of self-employed people to receive medical care. You're now paying around $18,000.00 a year just in premiums and deductibles before even getting to stick your tongue out to say aaaahh. The medical industry, like many other good old fashioned american industries is criminally predatory. Considering medical "mistakes" and infections kill more people than tobacco allegedly does these days, I wonder if there should be a Surgeon General's warning outside each hospital . Healthcare is one of the most insidious, parasitic businesses ever developed in this country. Yes, we need doctors and drugs. But we shouldn't have to pay 20+% of our GDP for it. The costs are outrageous to say the least, and getting worse. Obamacare, or whatever the hell it is called, seemed to kick the profiteering into high gear. Even if single payer passes some day, a long shot at best, it will be really difficult to force these cartels to play along. This was The Atlantis Report . Please Like. Share. And Subscribe .
