2017: The Year of Crisis

Written by Jeff Nielson | 01 January 2017 | Bullion Bulls Canada

Living on borrowed time.

This colloquialism conveys a very clear message. It tells us that some dramatic change or event is not merely imminent but overdue. We are living on borrowed time. For newer readers, first some context.

Our markets, our economies, and our governments in the Western world are completely under the control of a financial crime syndicate known as "the One Bank". It is organized crime taken to an entirely new echelon. The best definition of this crime syndicate comes via the computer model of a trio of Swiss academics, which first appeared in Forbes magazine.

Analyzing a massive data sample of more than 10,000,000 corporate and individual entities, the Swiss academics concluded that a single "super-entity" by itself controlled roughly 40% of the entire global economy. According to the computer model, the super-entity (crime syndicate) is comprised of 147 corporate fronts, with approximately 75% of these fronts being financial entities – i.e. banks.

The names of many of these corporate fronts will be very familiar to readers, such as: Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Bank of America, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, Barclays, Credit Suisse, and UBS. Goldman Sachs is particularly in the news at the moment, as the new Trump regime is infested with more Goldman Sachs stooges than any other regime in U.S. history. The United States of America is now Goldman Sachs Inc.

Here it must be understood that this crime syndicate is not some new plague to the Western world, but rather a very old one. It was first brought to our attention in 1907, by two-term Congressman and career prosecutor Charles Lindbergh Sr. In that year, Lindbergh presented to the U.S. Congress a document entitled The Bankers Manifesto of 1892. It reads, in part:
… Capital must protect itself in every possible manner through combination (conspiracy) and legislation. The courts must be called to our aid, debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.

When, through the process of law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government applied to a central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders.

History repeats itself in regular cycles. This truth is well known among our principal men who are engaging in forming an imperialism of the world. While they are doing this, the people must be kept in a state of political antagonism…

By thus dividing the voters, we can get them to expend their energies fighting over questions of no importance to us, except as teachers of the common herd. Thus, by discrete action, we can secure all that has been so generously planned and successfully accomplished. [emphasis mine]
The "central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers" is the grandiose term created by these criminals to describe the One Bank. In The Economic Pinch, Lindbergh himself writes about this crime syndicate. First on page 22:
Shortly after the [American] Civil War a group of men formed a selfish plan to rule the world by the manipulation of finances.
Then on page 75:
As a part of this scheme able financiers are being dispatched to different countries to prepare the way for an international banking system to bring the world under the control of one money trust [the One Bank].
Page 84:
A money trust was proven. It manipulated finance and business on an enormous scale and strangled all enterprise that undertook in any way to compete with the money trust group… In spite of the proof set before every Congressman that it was a Wall Street scheme, Congress by an overwhelming vote passed the Federal Reserve Act, and the President signed it practically as Wall Street had planned.
Career prosecutors don't use words like "proven" and "proof" lightly.

This account of the creation of the Federal Reserve is essentially identical to that presented by G. Edward Griffin in his acclaimed book The Creature From Jekyll Island, written ¾ of a century later. Another contemporary source, Bill Still, has produced a superlative presentation of this crime syndicate in his detailed documentary The Money Masters. At the 32-minute mark, Still notes that J.P. Morgan himself was "merely a Rothschild lieutenant".

If this crime syndicate had already declared its intentions 125 years ago; if this crime syndicate was known to "every Congressman" 100 years ago; how is it that practically no one knows of its existence in 2017?

The answer is simple. Among the 147 corporate fronts which are controlled by the One Bank are the handful of companies which comprise the corporate media: an oligopoly which controls everything we see and hear.

Among the principal criminal enterprises of the One Bank is what it calls "the business cycle": marching our markets and economies up and down in exaggerated peaks and troughs – to plunder our societies both when markets are rising and when they are falling. If an entity controls these "cycles" (via its own manipulations), then it can place its own bets first: going long when it marches our markets higher, then being first to go short when it stages its crashes.

The current "business cycle" has resulted in pumping up markets – especially U.S. markets – to insane extremes never before seen in our economies. In the U.S., its stock market bubble and bond market bubble are simultaneously at all-time highs. This isn't even theoretically possible in legitimate markets, since these are counter-cyclical markets.

Lindbergh comments on these bubble-and-crash cycles as he saw them a hundred years ago, less than a decade before the Crash of '29:
The frequent panics forced upon the people are created for the benefit of profiteers. Between panics we have what in comparison are called "good times." But times are never as good as they would be if business were done in the easiest way and most proper ways.
But there is no more profit to be made by the One Bank in pumping up these current bubbles to still greater heights, or simply maintaining valuations at these insane/artificial levels. A crash must be manufactured. Regular readers have been warned that the next crash was coming for two years now. Vultures like Warren Buffett are sitting on more cash-on-hand than ever before.

Based on the patterns of the two most recent bubble-and-crash cycles, it was previously noted that the most likely time to stage the next crash was before the U.S. election – so that the One Bank's incumbent political puppets could be fingered as the scapegoats (on the way out of office). Then the other half of this two-party dictatorship takes power with a clean slate.

More than 100 years ago, Charles Lindbergh Sr. had this to say about the two-party dictatorship in the U.S., and the perpetual game of swapping Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum played by the One Bank (p.60):
There is no material difference now in the old political parties except which shall control patronage.
And this career prosecutor had this to say about his fellow Congressmen (p.66-67):
All things demonstrate what happens when we accept the kept press falsehoods for truth, believe in the adroit schemes of the wealthy and listen with open mouths to the speeches of Congressmen whose statesmanship consists of sacrificing their constituents in return for kept press support and good committee appointments, and having the privilege of naming their political chums to fat office – these in turn for telling us whom and what to vote for.

We see the national catastrophe when we measure the work of these Congressmen – some of them called "Grand Old Men." They have served grandly and long the demands of the profiteers [the bankers]. The misfortunes of the people and the peril of the nation are too solemn for jest; but in spite of catastrophe the pretended wise and good Congressmen, their pompous parade for our votes and our blind following, make us look like jokes when we analyze their acts and measure them by our votes. [emphasis mine]
It is the descendants of these Godfathers of organized crime who operate the One Bank in the 21st century. While the names of the political puppets have changed in the U.S. (and elsewhere in the Western world), their deeds remain the same: "sacrificing their constituents in return for kept press support and good committee appointments, and having the privilege of naming their political chums to fat office".

The game is the same; it's just the crimes of the One Bank which get bigger and bigger and bigger. Being caught conspiring to rig the $500 trillion LIBOR debt market. Being caught conspiring to manipulate all of the world's currencies. Being caught conspiring to launder $trillions in dirty money for international drug cartels and known terrorist groups.

The One Bank (and its lackeys) are caught engaging in the largest criminal conspiracies in history, again and again and again. But neither the crime syndicate nor any of its principal henchmen (and henchwomen) are ever punished.

Now it's time again for the One Bank to crash our markets and our economies, and loot us on the way down, just as it did in the Crash of '08. But with its new political puppets in the U.S. having just taken office, it's now necessary to manufacture an exogenous cause for the next crash – so Trump and his collection of Goldman Sachs stooges don't get fingered as the scapegoats.

The One Bank has played this game before, as well. Its favorite tactic is a manufactured war, and currently its neocon henchmen in the U.S. government have been saber-rattling in the most shrill and aggressive manner since just before the United States launched its illegal invasion of Iraq – based 100% on lies and false pretexts.

In recent years, these lies and false pretexts have increasingly been directed at Russia and even China. This suggests that the current collection of psychopathic oligarchs at the helm of the One Bank are contemplating another World War. Alternately, the psychopaths may resort to one of their oldest games of all: the false-flag attack. We may see more war, economic chaos, and market crashes manufactured through the staging of some new "9/11" event.

The exact script which has been written for this year is known only to the criminals themselves. All that can be said with certainty is that 2017 will be a year of crisis.
