"UNACCEPTABLE" : LAWMAKERS BATTLE MILITARY RETIREE CUTS AHEAD OF KEY BUDGET VOTE

Published December 16, 2013
FoxNews.com



Oct. 16, 2013: Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., speaks to a reporter on Capitol Hill.Reuters

America's veterans and military retirees suddenly have emerged at the center of the budget debate and could be the determining factor in whether the House-passed deal makes it through the Senate.  

Despite the bill sailing out of the House last week on a strong bipartisan vote, Senate Republicans say the plan unfairly forces veterans to pick up the cost of new spending. The provision generating heated opposition from Veterans of Foreign Wars and allied lawmakers would cut retirement benefits for military retirees by $6 billion over 10 years.

"It's unacceptable to single out our men and women in uniform in this way," said Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., who on Monday is joining New Hampshire veterans groups to protest the bill.

The turbulence comes ahead of a key test vote on Tuesday. In sharp contrast to the confident statements issued by House leaders ahead of their vote last week, Senate leaders indicate they're still corralling support.

"The struggle is still on in the United States Senate," Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said in an interview on Sunday.

Democrats need to hold most their caucus of 55 senators together and pick up a handful of GOP senators in order to reach the 60-vote threshold to advance the bill.

But the Republican "no" votes were piling up over the weekend. Unlike in the House side, where Speaker John Boehner aggressively battled conservative groups trying to kill the bill, GOP leaders in the Senate are signaling opposition, or at least resistance, to the package. One member of the leadership team, Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, announced Friday that he opposes the deal because it breaches spending caps put in place by a 2011 budget deal "and doesn't include meaningful spending reforms that address our debt and deficit."

Meanwhile, Ayotte and other senators are rallying opposition against the military retiree provision.

The bill includes a 1 percent reduction in cost-of-living benefits for many retirees under 62 years old. It also requires most federal civilian employees to pay more toward their pensions -- however, that provision affects only new hires, while the change for military retirees could affect those currently serving.

"Unfortunately, our current and future military retirees were not provided with similar protections that current civilian federal employees are receiving under this act," Ayotte, along with Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Roger Wicker, R-Miss., wrote in a letter to colleagues.

They called the provision "unacceptable." They estimated that a 42-year-old sergeant first class retiree would lose roughly $72,000 under this change.

The three senators indicated they could support the bill if the military retiree provision is changed. It's unclear whether Senate leaders would consider making such changes -- as that likely would require another vote in the House.

Durbin, speaking on CBS' "Face the Nation," predicted Senate leaders will need "about eight Republicans" to support the bill on Tuesday -- indicating he expects about three Democratic defections.

"I feel we'll have a good, strong showing from the Democratic side. But we need bipartisan support to pass it," he said.

On the other side of the Hill, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan was defending his compromise budget deal, and suggesting congressional Republicans will be more demanding of Democrats during the upcoming debit-limit talks.

"We as a caucus -- along with our Senate counterparts -- are going to meet and discuss what it is we're going to want out of the debt limit," the Wisconsin Republican told "Fox News Sunday." "We don't want nothing out of this debt limit. We're going to decide what it is we're going to accomplish out of this debt-limit fight."

Congress faces a Jan. 15 deadline to pass a budget bill or risk another partial government shutdown. The debt-ceiling deadline is expected to hit sometime in February.

IL NE POUVAIT PLUS PAYER L'HYPOTHEQUE, IL DETRUIT SA MAISON ET ENVOIE DES MORCEAUX A SA BANQUE

Lundi 16 décembre 2013 

 

 
Un habitant de la ville de Lovech en Bulgarie qui ne pouvaient plus se permettre de payer l’hypothèque de sa maison a dépensé son dernier sou pour la démolir juste avant les banksters ne l’emportent.


Le terrain sur lequel la maison était construite n’est pas inclus dans l’hypothèque, de sorte que la famille a décidé de détruire la maison pour la donner à son nouveau propriétaire. Les restes de l’édifice ont été chargés sur un gros camion et déplacés vers le bureau du district central de la banque, dans la ville de Teteven, là où l’hypothèque a été signée.

 L’homme qui avait des dettes auprès de sa banque ainsi que toute sa famille est entré dans le bureau et a commencé à pleurer et à supplier pour que la banque ait pitié d’eux, mais le directeur a répondu qu’ils ne peuvent pas faire d’exceptions et que la famille avait une semaine pour laisser la maison vacante.

Imaginez le visage du directeur après le départ de la famille, et que sa précieuse nouvelle maison a été déchargée en face de l’entrée principale de la banque.

GOVERNMENT USING NSA TO CHANGE AMOUNT IN BANK ACCOUNTS, WARNS PANEL

Americans at risk of enforced Cyprus-style bail-in

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
December 19, 2013


A White House review panel report into the activities of the NSA suggested that the government was using the spy agency to launch cyber attacks against financial institutions and change the amounts held in bank accounts.

The 300 page report prepared for President Barack Obama by the Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technology called for the NSA to be stripped of its power to obtain bulk collections of telephone records.

 
Page 221 of the panel’s report states;  
Citation:


(1) Governments should not use surveillance to steal industry secrets to advantage their domestic industry;  
(2) Governments should not use their offensive cyber capabilities to change the amounts held in financial accounts or otherwise manipulate the financial systems.  


Trevor Timm from the Electronic Frontier Foundation responded to the report by suggesting that the NSA was targeting major financial institutions.

Does this NSA report recommendation imply that NSA is conducting
offensive cyber attacks against financial systems? pic.twitter.com/UlO0HN1vH7

In the aftermath of the Edward Snowden revelations it was confirmed that, “The National Security Agency (NSA) widely monitors international payments, banking and credit card transactions,” under the auspices of an international branch called Follow the Money (FTM), and that the spy agency has full access to the VISA and SWIFT payment systems.

 
“Top financial experts say that the NSA and other intelligence agencies are using information gained from spying to profit from this inside information. And the NSA wants to ramp up its spying on Wall Street … to “protect” it. “Whose money, exactly, is the NSA “protecting” … and how are they protecting it?” asks Washington’s Blog, “What about the money of people that the U.S. government considers undesirables?”

 
The government’s ability to use the NSA to directly amend bank accounts increases the risk of Americans being subjected to a Cyprus-style “bail-in” where a tax on savings deposits is directly levied in the name of austerity.

 
Earlier this year, Chase Bank customers attempted to withdraw their cash from ATMs only to be shocked at seeing their balance reduced to zero by a mystery system “glitch”. Was this in any way connected to the NSA’s activities?

 
With banks increasingly moving towards capital controls in a bid to stave off the risk of a sudden flight from the US dollar, the prospect of the US government relying on cyber attacks launched by the NSA to manipulate financial markets and bank accounts remains a genuine possibility.

NOW OBAMA WANTS YOUR 401(k)

Treasury, Labor on path to nationalize retirement

Published: 11/25/2012 at 5:58 PM

 
Jerome R. Corsi About | Email | Archive

Jerome R. Corsi, a Harvard Ph.D., is a WND senior staff reporter. He has authored many books, including No. 1 N.Y. Times best-sellers "The Obama Nation" and "Unfit for Command." Corsi's latest book is "Who Really Killed Kennedy?"



NEW YORK – Two years ago, as WND reported, the Obama administration was proceeding with a novel way to finance trillion-dollar budget deficits by forcing IRA and 401(k) holders to buy Treasury bonds by mandating the placement of government-structured annuities in their retirement accounts.

Remarkably, those financial professionals specializing in private retirement savings and the U.S. citizens investing in private retirement plans now face the possibility the Obama administration and its allies on the political left will impose rules and regulations that effectively abolish the private retirement savings and investment markets.

Recent evidence suggests government officials continue to eye the multi-trillion dollar private retirement savings market, including IRAs and 401(k) plans, eyeing the opportunity to redistribute private retirement savings to less affluent Americans and to force the retirement savings out of the private market and into government-controlled programs investing in government-issued debt.

Government takeover?

An Investment Company Institute study published this month found that U.S. retirement assets totaled $18.5 trillion at the end of the second quarter 2012, of which 3.5 trillion was in IRAs and $5.1 trillion was in 401(k) plans.

Since 2010, the U.S. Treasury Department and the Department of Labor have been holding combined hearings on various plans designed to introduce government-mandated retirement plans and investment options, including government annuities invested primarily in U.S. Treasury debt, into the private retirement savings market.

“This hearing was set up to explore why Americans are not saving as much for their retirement as they could,” explained National Seniors Council National Director Robert Crone, describing a recent Treasury-Labor hearing held in the Labor Department’s main auditorium.

“However it is clear that his is just the first step toward a government takeover. It feels like the beginning of the debate over health care and we all know how that ended up.”

‘Automatic IRA’

With the issuance of the White House 256-page Budget Proposal for Fiscal Year 2013, the Obama administration endorsed “Automatic IRAs,” a plan introduced into Congress in 2010 by Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass, and Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., in which private companies would be automatically enrolled into government-mandated IRAs, forcing those businesses to contribute on behalf of their employees a “default amount” equal to 3 percent of an employees pay, unless an employee specifically opts out of the plan.

The FY 2013 Budget proposal notes that currently 78 million working Americans, roughly half of the work force, lack employer-based retirement plans.

According to testimony given by David C. John of the Heritage Foundation to the House Committee on Ways and Means on April 17, most of the 78 million working Americans not participating in employer-based retirement plans are part-time employees of smaller businesses, women, members of minority groups or all three.

The remedy proposed on page 147 of the FY 2012 Budget Proposal is “a system of automatic work-place pensions that will expand access to tens of millions of workers who currently lack plans” by providing their employees with a government-mandated “direct deposit IRA account,” exempting only businesses with 10 or fewer employees and providing participating businesses with tax credits to compensate for the businesses implementing and administering the plans.

While the Automatic IRA would serve the purpose of extending private retirement plans to disadvantaged and generally poorer workers, the innovation would place additional costs upon employers. It would require employer contributions to the plans, even if tax credits fully complemented the businesses for implementing and administering them.

Retirement USA


The Service Employee International Union, or SEIU, a key labor union ally of the Obama administration, has mounted an effort to create government-mandated worker retirement accounts as an entitlement program, with the possibility that a portion of all private retirement funds could be forced into U.S. Treasury debt.

Branding the program “Retirement USA,” the SEIU has joined with the AFL-CIO, the Economic Policy Institute, a Washington-based economic left-leaning think tank that receives substantial labor funding, and two other left-leaning interest groups, the Pension Rights Center and the National Committee to Preserve Social Security.

The Retirement USA idea is promote the concept that all workers in the U.S. have a right to a government retirement account that would fund a secure retirement with adequate dollars, in addition to Social Security and private ERISA-retirement workplace retirement programs such as 401(k) programs.

“Our goal is to involve all workers and all employees in a government-mandated retirement program, with the government putting up the difference for lower paid employees,” Nancy Hwa, a spokeswoman for the participating Pension Rights Center, told WND in 2010.

Put simply, the Retirement USA government-mandated workplace retirement account would require by law employers and employees to contribute to a retirement account for every employee and demand that a portion of that contribution go into a federal-government created annuity that would be funded by purchasing Treasury debt.

“Retirement USA is basically an effort that amounts to nationalizing 401(k)s and IRAs,” David John, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, told WND when the Retirement USA idea was proposed two years ago.

Under the guise of making workplace retirement savings accounts available to all Americans and insuring that existing retirement savings accounts pay lifetime income, the SEIU-led Retirement USA effort is quietly exploring strategies that would create “Universal IRAs” or “Guaranteed Retirement Accounts” for all workers.

Following lead of Argentina


Writing in the London Telegraph in October 2008, business and economics editor Ambrose Evans-Pritchard warned that G7 nations, including the United States, may begin following the path of Argentina in forcing privately managed pension funds to be invested in government-issued debt.

In 2008, Argentine sovereign debt was trading at 29 cents on the dollar, reflecting the devalued state of the Argentine peso, with the result that private pensioners holding government debt in their retirement accounts could not be assured those bonds would have any meaningful value at maturity.

“Here is a warning to us all,” Evans-Pritchard wrote. “The Argentine state is taking control of the country’s privately managed pension funds in a dramatic move to raise cash.”

He warned the same could happen in the United States and Europe.

“The G7 states are already acquiring an unhealthy taste for the arbitrary seizure of private property, I notice,” Evans-Prichard warned. “It is a foretaste of what might happen across the world as governments discover that tax revenue and the bond markets are unwilling to plug the gap.”

Currently, as reported Friday by the Financial Times, Argentina is facing yet another bond default after U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Griesa ruled that an upcoming payment to holders of the debt-swap bonds Argentina issued in 2005 and 2010 must be accompanied by a payment in full of $1.3 billion. The payment is to be made to two U.S. hedge fund creditors that did not accept the 2005 and 2010 debt swaps proposed for the bonds Argentina defaulted on in 2001.

AMERICA : DEMAND FOR FOOD STAMPS SOARS AS CUTS SINK IN AND SHELVES EMPTY

More working Americans are lining up at emergency food banks and going hungry, as cuts to those programmes take effect



  The San Antonio food bankd Photograph: Karen McVeigh/The Guardian

For Denise Acosta, it was being laid off for the first time. For Diana Martinez, it was the death of her mother, leaving her as the sole carer for her severely disabled younger brother. For Johnny Hill, it was having to take responsibility, a year away from retirement, for her two young granddaughters.

Each of these hard-working women from San Antonio, Texas, have fallen victim to circumstances that turned their lives upside down, robbing them of their full-time jobs, the paychecks they once enjoyed and, in Acosta's case, her home. Their stories vary, but they all belong to a growing group, America's working poor, for whom the journey from getting by to hunger can be brutally short.

Deep cuts to the US food stamps programme, designed to keep low-income Americans out of hunger in the aftermath of the economic recession, have forced increasing numbers of families such as theirs to rely on food banks and community organisations to stave off hunger.

An expansion of the programme, put in place when the recession was biting deepest, was allowed to expire in November, cutting benefits for an estimated 48 million people, including 22 million children, by an average of 7%.

As these cuts begin to bite, even harsher reductions are in prospect. Republicans in the House of Representatives have proposed $38bn cuts over 10 years, in their latest version of a long-delayed farm bill that would also require new work requirements and drug tests for food stamp recipients.

The cuts have forced poor families to make tough choices. The Guardian spoke to beneficiaries of the food stamps scheme, known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programme (Snap), in San Antonio, Texas. As the second most populous US state after California, Texas suffered the second-biggest cut to its Snap programme, affecting 4 million recipients.

At the San Antonio Food Bank, where she comes for help with her resume and to register for its work force program, Acosta, 36, a mother of four children aged 14 and under, described how being laid off from her job as a healthcare administrator seven months ago had caused an immediate family crisis.

An $800 medical bill, no longer covered by insurance, meant Acosta quickly fell behind on the $1,200 monthly payments on her house, then the car. She lost both, and was forced to move in with her sister in Edinburg, Texas, 200 miles south, until her unemployment benefit came through. The strain of having her income slashed has taken its toll.

“For a while I had trouble sleeping. I would go to bed at three and four in the morning and I went through a depression. But I tell myself the children depend on me. I think 'Mind over matter'. People are worse off than me.”

In October, the family's Snap benefits were $113 a month, a sum that lasts them about a week and a half. A letter Acosta received warned her of a Snap cut of $11 for each family member in November. Acosta has learned to be creative: with the children's meals, with juggling bills, with trying to keep the kids from noticing the dwindling food on the table and in their schoolbags as her job search drags on.

“They are always starving, the boys have a very high metabolism – I don't know where the food goes. I used to buy Lunchables [lunch packs] for snacks, now I get a big pack of ham and cheese and we make our own. They say: 'Why can't we have Lunchables?' I tell them, 'This way they get more.' I buy larger packs of cheaper meat and stretch it out. We buy the cheaper brands of cereal now.

“If I don't have enough food, the older ones are harder to please. The younger ones will have a tuna sandwich or Roma noodles, around 19 cents a pack. The older ones say 'This isn't even a meal.' I do my best to make sure they don't see a difference. I don't want it to affect them as much as it's affecting me.”

The soaring participation in Snap, which has almost doubled in seven years – from 25 million people in 2006 to almost 48 million today – has made it a prime target for large cuts by Republican lawmakers anxious to save money.

The House bill would deny Snap to 3.8 million low-income people in 2014, according to estimates by the Congressional Budget Office, and to an average of 3 million people a year for 10 years. Those who would find themselves no longer eligible include some of the nation's neediest individuals, working families, children and senior citizens. In addition, 200,000 families would lose access to subsidised school meals.

“That would make it really difficult for people who struggle to find work like me to get back on their feet,” Acosta said.

Even since the November cuts took effect, those involved in emergency food distribution reported higher demand and longer lines, with new clients they had not seen before. The San Antonio Food Bank says donations are up 16% But because of the cuts to Snap the supplies disappear faster.

Eric Cooper, the CEO, said: “For me, October, November and December is harvest season. Our community is at [its] best. There's a great spirit of the holidays and giving is at its peak. But when I go into the warehouse, there are a lot of empty shelves. It used to last longer. Demand is outpacing supply.”

The food bank’s 535 partner agencies, food pantries and kitchens across 16 counties in southwest Texas, are ordering more food, Cooper said. “They are reporting longer lines and they are seeing people sooner in the month.”

Of the 58,000 clients fed by the SAFB every week, Cooper said, half are working families, many are underemployed, the rest are seniors and people who, through mental or physical disability, cannot work. There are a lot of veterans in Texas, some of whom have been disabled through military service. But on the whole, he said “Hunger is biased towards women and kids. A divorce, a separation can put a lot of women in poverty.”

From the San Antonio Food Bank it is a short drive to the Baptist Temple Church food pantry, one of its partners. It usually feeds between 220 and 240 needy families a day, representing around 900 individuals. When the Guardian visited, on an unseasonably cold night in December, scores of people stood shivering in line in the crowded car park across the road from the church, while others took refuge in cars.

Johnny Hill, 64, a divorced great-grandmother, is raising her daughter's children, aged five and three, and looks after another grandchild part time.

A former school cafeteria manager for 25 years, Hill now works in administration six days a month for the church, which pays her $600. Her Snap benefits fell rom $550 to $494 last month. She comes to the food pantry three times a month and shares what she has with her 85-year-old neighbour. “It doesn't matter about me,” she said. “I just need to look out for the kids. We eat a lot of salads. We manage. I'm dealing with it.”

She has a lot of “good church friends”, who help out, but admitted: “We'd be in trouble if we didn't have the food bank.”

Like Hill, Diana Martinez, 46, inherited the responsibility for another family member. Her mother's death, left her in sole charge of “baby brother” Michael, 41, who is severely mentally disabled, forcing her to give up her 18-year job as a head custodian for the school district.

“Michael has the mind of a two-year-old,” Martinez said. “He goes to day care, but when he's not feeling good, he acts up and he won't go for weeks. Who would give me a job and time off when he acts up?”

Now she earns minimum wage of $7.25 an hour from an agency for 24 hours a week of caring for him, a total of $754 a month. The rest of the time she does it for free. Martinez and her son, Sean, six, live with her brother in a handicapped apartment paid for by Michael's disability benefits and they get $288 in Snap, reduced from $308. It has meant less meat and a trip to the food bank once a month, usually to the Salvation Army site downtown.

“I got a chicken here today, so we'll have that and mashed potatoes and macaroni. Sean will like that. If it wasn't for the food bank, I would be hungry. It helps me a lot.”
Last month, the need for emergency food in this community soared to its highest level yet, according to Joe Guinn, a minister at the church. He shakes his head in disbelief as he recalls last month. “There were 260 families, that's almost 1,500 people,” said Guinn. “Our absolute highest ever.”

CURE D'AUSTERITE POUR LE BUDGET ONUSIEN

N'est-ce pas plutôt que l'on commence à se débarrasser des pauvres goyens qui ont cru aveuglément que ce gouvernement satanique travaillait pour le bien de l'humanité?

Le Monde | 28.12.2013 à 01h45 • Mis à jour le 28.12.2013 à 13h39




L'assemblée générale des Nations unies a adopté, vendredi 27 décembre, un budget marqué par une réduction des dépenses et du nombre de salariés au siège à New York, sous la pression des Etats-Unis et des puissances industrielles touchées par l'austérité.

Après d'âpres négociations, les 193 pays membres se sont entendus vendredi pour supprimer 221 postes du siège de l'organisation et ne pas augmenter le salaire de plus de 10 000 salariés à New York.

Le budget de l'ONU pour 2014-2015 passe à 5,5 milliards de dollars, soit 50 millions de dollars de moins que les deux années précédentes. Joe Torsella, chargé des ressources humaines des Nations unies, a salué ce budget, y voyant une avancée pour « éliminer les postes inutiles, redondants ou dépassés ».
22 % DU BUDGET FOURNIS PAR LES ETATS-UNIS

Les discussions sur le budget se sont prolongées après Noël car les Etats-Unis, principaux contributeurs au budget onusien avec l'Europe, se sont âprement disputés avec les pays en voie de développement qui souhaitaient maintenir un budget stable.

Les Etats-Unis fournissent environ 22 % du budget, la France, la Grande-Bretagne, l'Allemagne et le Japon sont parmi les contributeurs les plus importants. « Ces nouvelles mesures, qui feront date, marquent un nouvel engagement des Nations unies à une véritable discipline budgétaire à un moment difficile pour toutes les familles autour du monde », a déclaré Joe Torsella devant l'assemblée générale.

Le budget onusien ne comprend pas les dépenses engagées par les missions de maintien de la paix, dont le budget annuel est de 7,5 milliards de dollars, ni les fonds engagés pour le fonctionnement des principales agences onusiennes tels que l'Unicef et le Programme alimentaire mondial.

MIDDLETOWN, CT (WFSB) -

There are only five more days until the new gun laws go into effect for our state, that means a dash to register assault weapons or high capacity magazines.
A long line of people stood outside of the Public Safety Building in Middletown all day Thursday to register firearms.

Specifically, anything the state considers an assault weapon or a high capacity magazine must be registered before Jan. 1, 2014.

"If they were trying to make them illegal, I'd have a real issue, but if they want to just know where they are, that's fine with me," said Charles Gillette, who was registering magazines.

"I understand why they're doing it, but I don't think it's constitutional," said Scott Boccio, who was registering guns.

The controversial law was created last year after 20 children and six adults lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14. 

None of the people Eyewitness News spoke with thinks this is going to reduce gun violence. They believe it's only hurting law abiding citizens.

"If people are going to do things illegally, they're not going to be here registering their gun," said Jared Krajewski, who was registering guns.

"Unless you change everything, and make it England and take everything away, I don't see how they're going to stop it," Boccio said.

Like it or not, the deadline is coming fast and Connecticut State Police said if you want to cut down on the wait time, make sure all forms are taken care of.

"People don't realize the entire form must be filled out completely," said state police Lt. Paul Vance. "And if it requires a notary, it should be notarized before coming here. That's what's causing the massive line."

If you haven't registered yet, people are advised to get to the Public Safety Building in Middletown between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. However, people have been advised to get to the location early because of the long lines.

IF YOU ARE WAITING FOR AN “ECONOMIC COLLAPSE”, JUST LOOK AT WHAT IS HAPPENING TO EUROPE

By Michael Snyder, on January 8th, 2014




If you are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the "economic collapse", just open up your eyes and look at what is happening in Europe.  The entire continent is a giant economic mess right now.  Unemployment and poverty levels are setting record highs, car sales are setting record lows, and there is an ocean of bad loans and red ink everywhere you look.  Over the past several years, most of the attention has been on the economic struggles of Greece, Spain and Portugal and without a doubt things continue to get even worse in those nations.  But in 2014 and 2015, Italy and France will start to take center stage.  France has the 5th largest economy on the planet, and Italy has the 9th largest economy on the planet, and at this point both of those economies are rapidly falling to pieces.  Expect both France and Italy to make major headlines throughout the rest of 2014.  I have always maintained that the next major wave of the economic collapse would begin in Europe, and that is exactly what is happening.  The following are just a few of the statistics that show that an "economic collapse" is happening in Europe right now...

-The unemployment rate in the eurozone as a whole is still sitting at an all-time record high of 12.1 percent.

-It Italy, the unemployment rate has soared to a brand new all-time record high of 12.7 percent.

-The youth unemployment rate in Italy has jumped up to 41.6 percent.

-The level of poverty in Italy is now the highest that has ever been recorded.

-Many analysts expect major economic trouble in Italy over the next couple of years.  The President of Italy is openly warning of "widespread social tension and unrest" in his nation in 2014.

-Citigroup is projecting that Italy's debt to GDP ratio will surpass 140 percent by the year 2016.

-Citigroup is projecting that Greece's debt to GDP ratio will surpass 200 percent by the year 2016.

-Citigroup is projecting that the unemployment rate in Greece will reach 32 percent in 2015.

-The unemployment rate in Spain is still sitting at an all-time record high of 26.7 percent.

-The youth unemployment rate in Spain is now up to 57.7 percent - even higher than in Greece.

-The percentage of bad loans in Spain has risen for eight straight months and recently hit a brand new all-time record high of 13 percent.

-The number of mortgage applications in Spain has fallen by 90 percent since the peak of the housing boom.

-The unemployment rate in France has risen for 9 quarters in a row and recently soared to a new 16 year high.

-For 2013, car sales in Europe were on pace to hit the lowest yearly level ever recorded.

-Deutsche Bank, probably the most important bank in Germany, is the most highly leveraged bank in Europe (60 to 1) and it has approximately 70 trillion dollars worth of exposure to derivatives.

Europe truly is experiencing an economic nightmare, and it is only going to get worse.

It would be hard to put into words the extreme desperation that unemployed workers throughout Europe are feeling right now.  When you can't feed your family and you can't find work no matter how hard you try, it can be absolutely soul crushing.

To get an idea of the level of desperation in Spain, check out the following anecdote from a recent NPR article...
Citation:


Having trouble wrapping your head around southern Europe's staggering unemployment problem?
Look no further than a single Ikea furniture store on Spain's Mediterranean coast.
The plans to open a new megastore next summer near Valencia. On Monday, Ikea's started taking applications for 400 jobs at the new store.
The company wasn't prepared for what came next.
Within 48 hours, more than 20,000 people had applied online for those 400 jobs. The volume crashed Ikea's computer servers in Spain.



Of course that should kind of remind you of what I wrote about yesterday.  We are starting to see this kind of intense competition for low paying jobs in the United States as well.

As global economic conditions continue to deteriorate, things are going to get even tougher for those on the low end of the economic food chain.  Poverty rates are going to soar, even in areas where you might not expect it to happen.  In fact, one new report discovered that poverty has already been rising steadily in Germany, which is supposed to be the strongest economy in the entire eurozone...
Citation:


A few days before the Christmas holidays, the Joint Welfare Association published a report on the regional development of poverty in Germany in 2013 titled “Between prosperity and poverty—a test to breaking point”. The report refutes the official propaganda that Germany has remained largely unaffected by the crisis and is a haven of prosperity in Europe.

According to the report, poverty in Germany has “reached a sad record high”. Entire cities and regions have been plunged into ever deeper economic and social crisis. “The social and regional centrifugal forces, as measured by the spread of incomes, have increased dramatically in Germany since 2006,” it says. Germany faces “a test to breaking point.”



Of course poverty continues to explode on this side of the Atlantic Ocean as well.  In the United States, the poverty rate has been at 15 percent or above for three years in a row.  That is the first time that this has happened since the 1960s.

And this is just the beginning.  The extreme recklessness of European banks such as Deutsche Bank and U.S. banks such as JPMorgan Chase, Citibank and Goldman Sachs is eventually going to cause a financial catastrophe far worse than what we experienced back in 2008.

When that crisis arrives, the flow of credit is going to freeze up dramatically and economic activity will grind to a standstill.  Unemployment, poverty and all of our current economic problems will become much, much worse.

So as bad as things are right now, the truth is that this is nothing compared to what is coming.

I hope that you are getting prepared for the coming storm while you still can.

1 MILLIARD $ DE PLUS POUR L’AIDE EN SYRIE

Reuters

+

 La conférence s'est ouverte mercredi dans la capitale du Koweït.  Photo :  AFP/YASSER AL-ZAYYAT

Les pays occidentaux et les pétromonarchies du Golfe se sont engagés mercredi à verser à l'ONU 1,4 milliard de dollars de financements supplémentaires pour les opérations humanitaires en Syrie. = Oui, bien sûr, pour des opérations humanitaires, tel que bombes, drônes, immigrants/milices, etc

L'émir du Koweït, le cheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah, a promis une aide de 500 millions de dollars au peuple syrien lors d'une conférence internationale des donateurs réunie à Koweït. L'Union européenne s'est engagée pour 225 millions de dollars et la Grande-Bretagne, pour 165 millions. Les États-Unis y ont ajouté une contribution de 380 millions de dollars, tandis que le Qatar et l'Arabie saoudite promettaient chacun 60 millions. = Voilà où vont vos taxes/dollars, pendant qu'ils détruisent tout avec notre argent et que des milliers meurent de faim dans le monde. Si vous n'êtes pas convaincu de ce que je vous dis, regardez ce qui arrive dans chacun de vos pays pour appauvrir les peuples.

Cette conférence, la deuxième du genre organisée dans l'émirat, doit aider les Nations unies à lever les 6,5 milliards de dollars jugés nécessaires pour venir en aide en 2014 à la population syrienne. = Oui; bien sûr, à la population syrienne. Toujours le même vieux mensonge pour nous soutirer des sous via différentes fondations "charitables". Les populations, pourtant, continuent de souffrir et ne voient jamais le moindre sous, sauf pour les envoyer dans les camps de réfugiés et les vacciner tous, les condamnants ainsi à une mort certaine.

L'appel lancé le mois dernier est le plus important dans l'histoire de l'ONU, qui estime que le conflit a fait revenir la Syrie 35 ans en arrière sur le plan du développement humain. La moitié de la population vivrait désormais sous le seuil de pauvreté. = N'est-ce pas là un des objectifs principal des Nations Unies et de leur nombreux partenaires?

« Les flammes de la crise humanitaire en Syrie font toujours rage, détruisant tout signe de vie », a lancé le cheikh Sabah, qualifiant de « catastrophe » la guerre civile en cours depuis bientôt trois ans.

Plus de 100 000 morts

En 2013, une réunion des donateurs déjà organisée au Koweït avait permis de lever 1,5 milliard de dollars, utilisés pour fournir des rations de nourriture, des médicaments, de l'eau et des abris en Syrie et dans les États voisins. Les gouvernements des pays du Golfe avaient été les principaux donateurs.

Le secrétaire général de l'ONU, Ban Ki-moon, qui préside la conférence, a déploré que tous les fonds promis l'an passé n'aient pas été versés - entre 20 % et 30 % seraient manquants.

Il a également exprimé l'espoir que les discussions de paix prévues le 22 janvier prochain en Suisse permettent de réunir autour d'une même table le gouvernement syrien et l'opposition.

« J'espère que cela lancera un processus politique visant à établir un organisme transitoire de gouvernement doté des pleins pouvoirs exécutifs et, ce qui est le plus important, à mettre fin aux violences », a dit Ban Ki-moon.

D'après les Nations unies, le conflit syrien, qui a fait plus de 100 000 morts, a également provoqué le départ de 2,3 millions de réfugiés à l'étranger auxquels s'ajoutent quelque 4 millions de personnes déplacées par les combats (sur une population estimée à 22 millions d'habitants au début de la crise).

Pour le mois de décembre, les équipes du Programme alimentaire mondial (PAM) des Nations unies ont distribué des rations à 3,8 millions de personnes en Syrie, du jamais vu depuis le début de la crise, et ce, alors même que les populations civiles des provinces orientales tout comme les villes assiégées autour de la capitale sont hors d'atteinte.



« Guerre de siège »


Le PAM ajoute avoir besoin de 35 millions de dollars par semaine pour répondre aux besoins alimentaires en Syrie et dans les pays voisins qui abritent l'essentiel des populations réfugiées.

Valerie Amos, secrétaire générale adjointe de l'ONU pour les Affaires humanitaires, a accusé toutes les parties au conflit d' « ignorer totalement leurs responsabilités au regard des droits de l'homme et des obligations humanitaires ». Elle a dénoncé la « guerre de siège » qui est menée dans certaines zones de combat, notamment à Alep et dans la périphérie de Damas.

« Des enfants, des femmes, des hommes sont pris au piège, affamés, malades. Ils perdent espoir », a-t-elle dit.

Ban Ki-moon, lors de son intervention, a déploré que la Syrie soit revenue « des décennies en arrière ».

« Je suis particulièrement inquiet de voir toutes les parties user de violence contre les femmes et les jeunes filles afin de dénigrer leurs adversaires. Je demande la fin immédiate de telles pratiques », a déclaré le secrétaire général de l'ONU.

Sur le terrain, la situation est toujours aussi dramatique. Mercredi, une fusillade a contraint une équipe humanitaire des Nations unies à renoncer à livrer des rations alimentaires et des vaccins contre la polio au camp palestinien de Yarmouk, à la périphérie de Damas.

BUDGET UNCERTAINTY CHALLENGES READINESS, OFFICIAL SAYS


By Army Sgt. 1st Class Tyrone C. Marshall Jr.
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Jan. 15, 2014 – The Defense Department continues to face persisting challenges due to budget uncertainties under sequestration, the Pentagon’s acquisitions chief said here today.

Frank Kendall, undersecretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics, spoke to an audience at the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics SciTech conference about force structure and readiness challenges the Pentagon faces under a cloud of fiscal uncertainty.

“I can’t say much about … the budget we’re going to submit, because we haven’t submitted it yet,” he said. “But we’re obviously working on it and getting ready to do that in the next few weeks. Hopefully, by next week we’ll be out of the continuing resolution world and into the world of executing an actual budget. We got some relief, of course, from sequestration.”

Kendall said this year the department will be “pretty close” to splitting the difference between sequestration numbers and what President Barack Obama requested.

“This year we did not start spending as if we were going to get our request,” he added. “We were spending with an eye on expectations that sequestration might continue. So we’re in much better shape than we were in last year. But there are still some substantial cuts in there, and they fall disproportionately, I’m sure, to parts of the budget.”

The acquisitions chief said if the fiscal year 2015 bipartisan budget act governs what happens next year -- “and right now the indications are that it probably will,” he told the audience -- the department will be “quite a bit closer” to sequestration levels.

“We’ll be down to [a cut] within about $10 billion for defense at the sequestration level,” Kendall said. “It was a $50 billion cut, so we’re looking at 80 percent of that.”
Kendall said the prolonged budget uncertainty due to sequestration continues to cause “fundamental problems.”

“Sequestration is not being repealed,” Kendall said. “We’re modifying that a little bit for [fiscal years 2014 and 2015], but after that, the law remains at the sequester levels.”
Sequestration levels, he said, are not the funding levels the Defense Department needs.

“The [fiscal 2015] level, if it persists or prevails, is well below what we need to defend the country,” Kendall said. “Even this year, of course, we’re below what we’d like to have -- what we thought we needed under the strategy we put out about two years ago now. The uncertainty is causing some pretty fundamental problems for us.”

Until the Pentagon has some idea of the budget’s trajectory and where it will end, he said, it’s difficult to do serious planning. “The driving factor in our planning is the size of our force structure,” he explained. “Everything flows from that. So we don’t know where we’re going to be able to end up in terms of force structure that we can support.”

Kendall said the department will end up keeping force structure in the hopes that it can be retained, but he added that this isn’t the right course for the department’s health. “If we know where we’re going to end up,” he said, “we can decide to get to that level of force structure that we can support longer-term right away.”

But given the uncertainty, he added, the tendency is to hang onto force structure.

“What I think you will probably see us doing is taking steps to start to bring it down,” he told the conference audience. “It’s the only prudent thing for us to do.”

The acquisitions chief was cautious about getting ahead of the president and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel in terms of speculating where the budget will go, but he emphasized the impact of hanging onto force structure. “If we hang onto more force structure than we can afford,” he said, “it means that the other accounts, besides pay and joint operations, have to pay the bills.”

All of these effects, Kendall warned, could lead to a hollow force and a readiness crisis.

“I lived the readiness crisis of the ’70s,” he said. “I know exactly what it’s like to have a hollow force because of readiness. But that’s not the only way we can have a hollow force.”
Failing to invest in science and technology to stay ahead in the world is another route to a hollow force, Kendall said, as is relying on aging equipment that’s hard to maintain.
“So there’s a number of ways you can have a hollow force,” he said. “Readiness is just one of them.”

Kendall said Pentagon officials are trying to avoid that.

“But frankly,” he added, if we stay on the path that we’re on, I think that we will, at least in the short term, until we can get back into balance, have a hollow force because of this.”

WHITE HOUSE SHARES IRAN DEAL WITH CONGRESS --- BUT NOT THE PUBLIC

By SUSAN CRABTREE

The Obama administration on Thursday provided lawmakers with the full text of a nuclear agreement between Iran, the U.S. and other world powers, but held off releasing the full document to the public, providing only a summary.

The move comes after critics pushed for more transparency over the negotiations to freeze aspects of Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

Several Republican senators have said they are worried about Iranian officials' claims earlier this week of a “secret side deal” between the U.S., the P5+1 group and Iran, and have urged the Obama administration to allow lawmakers and the public to scrutinize the interim agreement.

  WHAT THE EU DOES WITH YOUR MONEY

Occasionally it is possible to see a little way ahead and already it looks clear that 2014 is going to be an "annus horribilis" for the European Union [EU]. 

With voters going to the polls in May 2014 and the recent opinion polls showing not so much Eurosceptic as simply anti-EU parties in the lead in most major European countries, there will likely be a lot of things on the minds of the Eurocrats in the coming months: disaster emergency planning, location of escape-exits, pension and retirement plans to name but a few. 

But as the European tables look set to start turning, there is one thing that voters ought to keep right at the forefront of their minds.

There are many ways in which the EU displays a casual disregard for its distribution of taxpayers' money. But one of the most outrageous ways by far – with some very stiff competition – is the way in which the EU wastes taxpayers' money by giving huge lumps of it in aid to the Palestinian Authority [PA]. The laxity with which this is done and the uses to which much of that money is put highlights a problem which ought to make even the EU blush – and any decent taxpayer rebel.

Ignorance can be no excuse. In recent years a number of organizations and individuals have persistently highlighted the manner in which EU funding has been used to facilitate hate-materials and hate-teaching in Palestinian schools. Foremost among the organizations that have highlighted this has been Palestinian Media Watch [PMW], which has systematically and carefully collected and translated for wider English-speaking consumption the sort of language that is used routinely in the education sectors in Palestinian society. 

And as in the schools, so in the media. For EU money is also used to fund various Palestinian media outfits. And the diet of hatred they spew out is the stuff of legend. For instance, there is the aid money that goes to television stations such as that which PMW recently showed to be broadcasting material describing Jews as "rats" and "crows."

But it is not just in schools and the media that EU money has been put to such wildly inappropriate use. As highlighted before, perhaps the most appalling misuse of public funds has been the EU payment of salaries to the families of convicted terrorists. This issue of the EU payments of terrorist's salaries while the terrorists are in prison has been a not yet hot-enough potato for some time now. 

After the last round of exposure in 2012, some EU officials criticized the PA for using public monies in this way. But as PMW has just shown again, the response of PA officials to this is not only disrespectful towards the EU. It is openly contemptuous, derogatory, scornful and dismissive of the hand that is presuming to feed them.

As Palestinian Media Watch recently highlighted, in November alone the EU donated approximately 11 million euros to pay the salaries of PA government employees. And yet, in that same month, one PA minister has been shown openly to have mocked the uses to which the PA puts the EU money: In one appearance, the minister said about the EU's weak recent requests, "The Europeans want their money that comes to us to remain clean – not to go to families of those they claim to be terrorists. ... These [prisoners] are heroes."

Or, as the head of the Prisoners' Club showed, the salaries to both government workers and prisoners are paid alongside one another:

"What is disbursed to the prisoners is exactly what is disbursed to me and you [a PA civil servant]. These are salaries. Therefore, when the salaries are paid to those working in [government] ministries and institutions, they will also be paid to the prisoners."

As this author has humbly pointed out many times, paying people to hate you and your values, and paying people to carry out acts of terrorism against your friends, is a strange use to which any private individual might choose to put his money. But for a government – and a supra-government at that – to use taxpayers' money in such a way is criminal.

If the EU does not mind being ignored and laughed at, it should at least consider the damage it has done to the very cause it presumes to support.

After all, as any trip around the West Bank will show you, the buildings that are brightest and best are the ones with nice EU (and USAID) logos on their side. The ministries and proto-ministries are all there. The public buildings needed to get the failed pre-state of Palestine off the ground are all around. And yet somehow something is missing. 


The cause of which partly lies in the fact that the PA allowed the EU and US to build all the infrastructure of a state for them. And while that proto-state was being built for them, the members of the PA focused its energies on building hatred.

It may well be the case that if any concern over all this exists in the minds of EU officials, it is far down on their list of priorities. And in one sense, who can blame them when the Eurozone is busy lurching from disaster to disaster? Well the answer is that later in the year we – the European public – gets to blame them. And later this year, we will get the chance to vote.

'THE WORLD IS CATCHING EMERGING MARKETS FLU': UK AND US SHARES TAKE A HIT AS PLUNGING CURRENCIES WORRY GLOBAL INVESTORS

  • FTSE 100 falls 1.6% to five-week low and US shares down 2%
  • European shares suffer biggest fall in seven months as fears over Argentinian peso crisis grow
  • Political instability in Ukraine and Turkey add to investors' worries over cuts to quantitative easing

By Adrian Lowery

PUBLISHED: 12:43 GMT, 25 January 2014 | UPDATED: 13:32 GMT, 25 January 2014

Shares around the world were hit yesterday as concerns over emerging markets
saw global investors sell stocks and dive into safe-haven assets.

The London market sank to a five-week low, with the FTSE 100 falling 1.6 per cent as Latin American currencies like the Argentinian peso suffered massive falls.

The blue-chip index lost 109.54 points to 6,663.74 - its lowest close since December 20 - and was followed by falls on Wall Street, where the S&P 500 stock index tumbled 2.0 per cent. The Dow Jones industrial average also lost 2 per cent.



Emerging markets
flu: Traders ion London and New York were unnerved this week by instability in 'growth economies' around the world.


European shares suffered their biggest fall in seven months and the FTSEurofirst 300 index erased all its gains for 2014, to stand down 1.1 per cent on the year.

Traders were driven to sell by worries over slowing China growth, the prospect of the US Federal Reserve further cutting its quantitative easing programme, as well as a conflagration of political problems in Turkey, Argentina and Ukraine.



Next week's crunch Federal Reserve meeting will be Ben Bernanke's last as Chairman.

'The world is suffering from the emerging markets' flu,' said Michael James, managing director of equity trading
at Wedbush Securities in Los Angeles.


The Turkish lira hit a record low as the cost of insuring against a Turkish default rose to an 18-month high.

The peso suffered its steepest daily decline since the country's devastating 2002 financial crisis, on top of falls on Thursday, after central bank gave up a battle to prop up the currency.

Having shed more than 30 per cent of its reserves last year, the central bank this week surprised traders by abandoning intervention in the foreign exchange market.

The new policy increased worries about what is already one of the world's highest inflation rates.

'We expect the emerging market sell-off to get worse before it starts getting better,' said Lorne Baring, managing director of B Capital Wealth Management
in Geneva. 'There's definitely contagion spreading and it's crossing over from emerging to developed in terms of sentiment.'

'It's just the final realization that [emerging markets%3Cimg%20src=]markets%3Cimg%20src=]



The FTSE 100 hit a recent low of 6,440 in December but had recovered to nearly 6,840 before recent falls.

'It's a combination of less liquidity for these countries that depended on foreign money and China kind of throwing some curve balls as well.'

The Fed last month shaved $10billion off its monthly purchases of bonds to $75billion. The bank holds a policy meeting next Tuesday and Wednesday and is widely expected to make further reductions to its asset-buying.

Investors responded to the uncertainty by buying into safe-haven assets like the Japanese yen and Swiss franc, and highly rated government bonds. German Bund futures rose and 10-year US Treasury yields hit an eight-week low below 2.75 per cent.



Buenos Aires saw protest demonstrations and popular unrest in 2002 as Argentina was gripped by severe inflation and mass unemployment.

Gold hit a two month high, gaining for a fifth straight week, as weaker equities burnished its safe-haven appeal. Spot gold rose to as high as $1,272.70 from $1263.95 on Thursday.

US STOCKS SLAMMED; DOW FALLS 300-PLUS POINTS IN WORST WEEK SINCE 2011

Next week's trading

Friday, 24 Jan 2014 | 4:24 PM ET

"We're setting up for a pretty good buying opportunity, explains David Seaburg, Cowen & Company head of sales & trading.

U.S. stocks fell sharply and Treasuries rallied on Friday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbling triple-digits for a second session and posting its worst week since November 2011, as investors pulled money from emerging markets
and other assets viewed as risky.


As Wall Street's faith in some of the world's largest developed countries unraveled, currencies of those nations were hit, with Turkey's lira falling to a record low against the dollar, and Argentina's peso down sharply against the U.S. currency.

"We've touched off by what's going on around the world, so to speak, and are reallocating assets from some of the emerging markets
into what is thought of as more reliable," said JJ Kinahan, chief strategist at TD Ameritrade. "It's a safe parking spot," Kinahan added of fixed income.

"It appears this is a wait-and-see equity market that lacks near-term conviction, which is understandable after the strong returns of 2013. The market priced in a lot of positive economic news in 2013, and we recently have seen readings that point to some uncertainty," said Terry Sandven, chief equity strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management
.

"Emerging-market currencies have been coming under pressure causing some to erroneously point out it is because of the Fed taper. It is more because of political instability in countries like Argentina and Turkey, which is just another reason to stay underweight EM," Nick Raich, CEO at the Earnings Scout, wrote in emailed research.

Procter & Gamble on Friday reported lower quarterly profit, but the maker of diapers and detergent left its 2014 sales growth forecast unchanged. Microsoft late Thursday posted a larger-than-expected quarterly profit, with shares of the software giant and Dow component rising.

So far, earnings haven't been "what we wanted to see for most companies. The CEOs in certain sectors, like technology and finance, have been pretty positive. But others say it's good, but not great, and they are not necessarily going out and hiring more people," said Kinahan.

BANK RUN FEARS: CUSTOMERS BEING FORCED TO PROVIDE EVIDENCE FOR WHY THEY NEED CASH

In early 2013 the country of Cyprus locked down private banking accounts and restricted access to depositor funds. It was the first widely documented instance of a “bail-in,” as bank officials and European regulators determined that bad loans taken on by the banks were now the responsibility of the banks’ customers. This led to a country-wide confiscation of 10% or more of all customer funds. In the heat of the Cyprian financial panic banks limited cash withdrawals to around $300 and ramped up security to prevent angry Cypriots from breaking down the doors.

What happened in Cyprus was big news all over the world, but within a few news cycles, once European and American officials assured the people it was a limited-scope event, the general population swept potential fears under the rug. No one really reported on the fact that the European Union quickly instituted new regulatory policies that would force bail-ins across the entire continent should such a crisis take hold again. Likewise, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke assured Americans that the crisis in Cyprus and Europe posed no risk to the US financial system, citing FDIC insurance for U.S. bank depositors as the safety net that would prevent a similar situation in the United States.

The United States, Europe, China and all of the world’s developed economies are, if officials are to be believed, completely immune to what happened in Cyprus. The current belief by the best and brightest is that these countries are simply too big to ever be faced with a total collapse of their banking systems.

But what if they were wrong? What if private debt reached such obscene levels that the loans taken on by lenders could never be repaid? What if a country like China, which holds trillions of dollars in cash reserves and has modern central banking regulations, did face such a problem?
Couldn’t happen, right?
It turns out, that’s exactly what is happening right now, as Chinese banks struggle to cope with nearly $23 trillion worth of potentially bad loans. Yes, that’s Trillion, with a “T.” The Chinese, it appears, have mimicked the exact set of circumstances that led to the 2008 crisis in America. Remember all of those empty cities and malls in China – they housed no people or shopping venues, yet cost billions of dollars to develop? It looks like all those bridges to nowhere are catching up with the Chinese. And the panic has begun, as evidenced by capital controls and restrictive withdrawal policies now being implemented by one of the largest banks in the world all across China.
Want to know how a bank run starts? Look no further:
Citation:

 HSBC is imposing restrictions on large cash withdrawals raising a number of red flags. The BBC reports that some HSBC customers have been prevented from withdrawing large amounts of cash because they could not provide evidence of why they wanted it. HSBC admitted it has not informed customers of the change in policy, which was implemented in November for their own good: “We ask our customers about the purpose of large cash withdrawals when they are unusual… the reason being we have an obligation to protect our customers, and to minimise the opportunity for financial crime.” As one customer responded: “you shouldn’t have to explain to your bank why you want that money. It’s not theirs, it’s yours.”
Citation:

When we presented them with the withdrawal slip, they declined to give us the money because we could not provide them with a satisfactory explanation for what the money was for. They wanted a letter from the person involved.”

Mr Cotton says the staff refused to tell him how much he could have: “So I wrote out a few slips. I said, ‘Can I have £5,000?’ They said no. I said, ‘Can I have £4,000?’ They said no. And then I wrote one out for £3,000 and they said, ‘OK, we’ll give you that.’ “

He asked if he could return later that day to withdraw another £3,000, but he was told he could not do the same thing twice in one day.



Mr Cotton cannot understand HSBC’s attitude: “I’ve been banking in that bank for 28 years. They all know me in there. You shouldn’t have to explain to your bank why you want that money. It’s not theirs, it’s yours.”

As in China, the debt party in the United States has returned in force. We are now very close to the same levels of personal and commercial debt as we saw prior to the crash of ’08, but rather than being concerned the experts say don’t fight it, embrace it.

But as is the case in China, the debt party will soon be coming to an end in the United States as tens of millions of Americans see their wealth and jobs wiped out. Like the people of China who took on loans they can’t repay, Americans are under the gun. And in the near future, the same credit problems that gripped the world before will do so again. And this time we’ll be footing the bill directly from our bank accounts (rather than the Federal Reserve’s printing presses).

We may not yet have official regulatory or bank policies for restricting cash withdrawals here in the USA, but just try to head to your local bank and withdraw $5000 or $10,000 and see what happens. You will invariably be met with stares from bank employees and questions about your intentions and why you need that much cash.

We’ve already seen how fast they can lock down the entire banking system. It’ll only take a push of a button and everything you think you have in your personal bank account could be seized.

But then again, as Ben Bernanke has said previously, there is no risk to the financial system. Moreover, the FDIC has insured your money, so if something does go wrong with the American banking system, all of your losses are totally covered by the roughly $50 billion in FDIC reserves. That should be plenty of money to handle the $9 trillion in US-based domestic customer deposits, plus the $300 trillion in derivatives bets made by the banks.

So, no need to worry, because the government’s got your back (and they would NEVER think of using your deposited funds to offset any bank losses).

But even though it is impossible to conceive that such a thing might happen we recommend preparing for it just in case. We know FEMA will be there to provide emergency cash, food and recovery tents. But in the off chance the credit system locks up again, ATM’s are limited to minimal withdrawals, and the banks do seize your money you might want to have some food, supplies, gold, and reserve cash on hand.

We realize such a thing could never happen – not in the world’s most developed and richest economy. Ben Bernanke, Janet Yellen, government officials and TV pundits say it can’t. So, these extra supplies would be just for fun and entertainment – something to show friends and family when they come over so you can have a laugh about all these crazy Doomsday scenarios.

MISSOURI REPUBLICANS WANT TO JAIL FEDERAL AGENTS OVER GUN LAWS 

A Missouri state Senate committee began hearing testimony on Tuesday on legislation that would make it a crime, punishable by up to a year in jail, for federal agents to attempt to enforce gun laws.

The bill would send federal agents to jail for up to a year and fine them up to $1,000 for seeking to enforce federal gun control laws. The bill doesn’t specify which gun laws would be off-limits, though it mentions registration and tracking policies.

Courts have ruled repeatedly that state laws cannot supersede federal legislation, though the bill, sponsored by state Sen. Brian Nieves (R), “declares as invalid all federal laws that infringe on the right to bear arms” under the Second Amendment. “Federal supremacy does not apply to federal laws that restrict or prohibit the manufacture, ownership, and use of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition within the state because such laws exceed the scope of the federal government’s authority,” according to a bill summary.

The measure would strip law enforcement officials of immunity and make them responsible for attorneys’ fees and “costs.”

LES NOUVELLES BULLES FINANCIERES SUR LE POINT D'ECLATER


La rédaction

mardi 28 janvier 2014

La bulle des marchés émergents, alimentée par les centaines de milliards de dollars de capital spéculatif que les banques européennes et américaines avaient empruntés aux banques centrales, explose. Et elle entraîne dans sa chute les monnaies des pays concernés, de même que les marchés financiers dans la région transatlantique. Rien qu’en 2013, 59 milliards de dollars sont sortis des marchés émergents, en anticipation d’une modification de la politique
monétaire de la Réserve fédérale et d’autres banques centrales.


De même que la bulle des subprime qui déclencha l’effondrement du système en 2007, celle des marchés émergents n’est qu’une des multiples bulles que les banques centrales, de par leur politique monétaire hyperinflationniste des cinq dernières années, ont encouragées. Résultat, le système aujourd’hui est plus endettée, plus gangrené et plus près d’une détonation totale qu’il y a cinq ans.

Selon une étude couverte par le Süddeutsche Zeitung, les banques européennes auraient besoin de 770 milliards d’euros de plus pour couvrir leurs actifs en difficulté. Les banques françaises et allemandes à elles seules devraient trouver 485 milliards (285 + 200).L’étude est de Sascha Steffen, professeur
à la European School of Management and Technology de Berlin, et Viral Acharya de la New York Stern School of Business.


En même temps, la Banque
centrale européenne conduit sa propre « revue de la qualité des actifs », dont les résultats sont attendus au printemps. Si les chiffres qu’elle trouve sont inférieurs à ceux de cette étude, ils manqueront d’emblée de crédibilité.


Dans ce contexte se situe la déclaration inhabituelle faite à Davos par Axel Weber, un ancien directeur de la Bundesbank, aujourd’hui président du Conseil d’administration d’UBS.

Weber est convaincu que certaines des grandes banques
en Europe, « malgré les pressions politiques », échoueront au stress test de la BCE, et seront alors obligées de lever du capital, mais incapables de le faire. Le choix qui se poserait dès lors serait soit un renflouement par les gouvernements – ce qui entraînerait une nouvelle crise de la dette souveraine comme en 2010-12 – soit la faillite de la banque
.


Le chef de la BCE Mario Draghi est également sur les nerfs. Dans une interview à Davos, il estimait que le Fonds unique de résolution devrait être pleinement approvisionné bien avant la date prévue. D’autres participants au Forum économique mondial ont exprimé la crainte que les élections du mois de mai au Parlement européen donnent un poids sans précédent aux partis opposés à l’euro. Certains de ces partis soutiennent la mise en œuvre de la séparation des banques suivant les critères de Glass-Steagall.

CELENTE WARNS OF COMING RIOTS: “THE COLLAPSE IS ENGULFING THE WORLD”

He accurately predicted the trends that have shaped the last decade. Ahead of the collapse of 2008 his Trends Journal newsletter issued a forecast that stock markets, which had just hit all time highs, would buckle in the first quarter of the year and that an unprecedented recession would blanket the global economy. He said the decline in  financial markets would then be followed by disillusionment in America’s political and economic systems, leading to the rise of a third-party and widespread protests across America. And while officials the country over tried to assuage fears in the populace, he cautioned that the middle class would continue to be destroyed through taxation, regulation and fiscal incompetence.
His foresight was 20/20.

Now, renowned trend forecaster Gerald Celente warns that, despite establishment claims of recovery and growth, things are about to get a whole lot worse.
Celente isn’t suggesting that a massive collapse is going to happen in the future.

He says we’re already in it – and it’s taking hold right before our eyes across the entirety of the globe:
Citation:


This selloff in the emerging markets, with their currencies going down and their interest rates going up, it’s going to be disastrous and there are going to be riots everywhere…
…So as the decline in their economies accelerates, you are going to see the civil unrest intensify.

If you want to know a business that will thrive in 2014, it may well be guillotines because these are ‘Off with their heads’ moments.

Meanwhile, they just passed laws in Spain to stop people from protesting.  But all the laws in the world do not feed starving people.  All the laws in the world do not put roofs over people’s heads. 
That’s why you are going to see heads roll.
…you can already see chaos engulfing the world as the Fed’s global financial scheme is collapsing.  This collapse is engulfing the entire world, from Russia, to South Africa, into China and emerging markets across the globe. 
Full Interview at King World News (also available in audio broadcast)
via Steve Quayle





Should protesters in the U.S. threaten the status quo in any way they will be dealt with like the people who took to the streets in the Ukraine, Egypt, Iran, and Greece.
In fact, a Federal court recently upheld Congressional legislation passed in 2012 that allowed the herding of protestors into so-called “free speech” zones, and to charge those who assemble at “official functions” designated as areas of “national significance” with federal crimes punishable by one year in prison.
Citation:


Under that verbiage, that means a peaceful protest outside a candidate’s concession speech would be a federal offense…




Carefully controlled protests involving individuals who have been bused in by their respective political party or union leaders are often televised by the mainstream media in an effort to give Americans a false sense of freedom.

When these protests turn to uprising and riots because millions of people can no longer keep a roof over their heads or food in their bellies, you can bet that those involved will be dealt with swiftly and behind the cloak of terrorism secrecy laws like the National Defense Authorization Act which essentially gives the government the right to detain anyone, for any reason, for an indefinite amount of time.

But the real question here is, why would the government need laws like this?

Why would they be war-gaming and simulating economic collapse scenarios and civil unrest?

Why are they continuing to borrow trillions of dollars from foreign creditors and injecting the domestic economy with tens of billions of dollars on a monthly basis?

The only plausible answer, given the current economic climate in America and sentiment on Main Street, is that the authorities at the highest levels of our government know that something very bad could happen.

And they confirmed this in two letters issued by two different Treasury Secretaries over the last several years. Most recently, the Treasury department noted that failure to satiate our nation’s never ending appetite for debt would have a “catastrophic effect” on our economy:

Citation:


Credit markets could freeze, the value of the dollar could plummet, US interest rates could skyrocket, the negative spillovers could reverberate around the world, and there might be a financial crisis and recession that could echo the events of 2008 or worse.

Not only might the economic consequences of default be profound, but those consequences, including high interest rates, reduced investment, higher debt payments, and slow economic growth, could last for more than a generation…




The fall-out from our current economic climate is going to be unprecedented. For those who deny this is happening, understand that the above warning comes directly from our Treasury Department. They’re the money guys. And they are telling us what’s going to happen.

And be assured it won’t just be stock markets that drop precipitously.

What we’re talking about here is the collapse of the economy of the United States of America – the richest nation on Earth.

The consequences will be devastating on every level and those of us on Main Street will be taking the brunt of the impact.

Imagine a situation where jobs continue to be shed by the hundreds of thousands every month without abatement. A situation where the price of basic essentials like energy and food rise without restraint. A situation where medical care is so expensive that average Americans will go bankrupt trying to pay for government mandated coverage. A situation where whatever money you do have in savings becomes worthless because our currency loses credibility around the world.

This is what’s happening right now.

The scary version: There is no way to turn this around. It’s just going to get progressively worse.

If you haven’t taken steps to prepare – to insulate yourself for an economic end of the world as we know it – then life for you and your family is going to be horrific.
This is the depression.

RUMOR OF WAR AND ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

15 FEBRUARY “CATASTROPHE” WARNED WILL SHAKE ENTIRE WORLD


by TheTotalCollapse.com on February 2, 2014

A grim report circulating in the Kremlin today prepared the by the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) of the Ministry of Defense is warning that the assassinations this past week of three top Western bankers coincide with Snowden Documents detailing a 15 February 2014 “catastrophe” being engineered by the Obama regime in order to establish some type of new world economic order prior to the coming global meltdown of markets and massive bank failures, some of which have already begun.

Edward Snowden is a computer specialist and former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agent who with his yet unidentified US military backers obtained nearly two million highly classified top-secret documents from the United States Department of Defense (DOD) run National Security Agency-Central Security Service (NSA/CSS) and was granted temporary asylum in Russia in 2013 after his designation by the Obama regime as the “most wanted man on earth.”

The three Western bankers targeted for elimination by Obama regime “black team hit squads,” this report says, were Deutsche Bank executive Bill Broeksmit, 58, found dead at his home in Chelsea, south west London, on 26 January, JPMorgan Chase & Company vice president in technology operations Gabriel Magee, 39, who died after falling from his London headquarters on 28 January, and chief economist at Russell Investments, and former US Federal Reserve economist, Mike Dueker, 50, found dead at the side of a highway that leads to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State on 31 January.

The “common link” between these bankers, this GRU report continues, began this past year after two JP Morgan whistleblowers confessed that their bank manipulates the gold and silver markets, which led to this past weeks stunning announcement that Europe’s largest bank, Deutsche Bank, would withdraw from the appropriately named gold and silver price “fixing”, as European regulators investigate the manipulation of precious metals prices by Western banks.


Deutsche Bank executive Broeksmit, called among the “finest minds” in his field, and Russell Investments Dueker, ranked among the top 5 percent of economists by number of works published, this report says, were at the forefront of the European investigation into JPMorgan gold and silver price manipulation and had as their “inside man” JPMorgan tech guru Magee who oversaw his banks computer systems built for this crime.

Critical to note, GRU economic analysts say in this report, is that if the price of gold and silver were to achieve their “honest” level, JPMorgan would collapse as it does not have the reserves needed to equal the “paper” gold it has already sold, and a JPMorgan collapse would then, in turn, implode the entire global economic system.

Even worse, this report continues, JPMorgan crimes have now reached into the motherland itself after the Russian Central Bank (RCB) yesterday was forced to shut down Moscow-based lenders My Bank and Priroda Bank after they were unable to retrieve their foreign deposits from the British multinational banking and financial services company HSBC due to their imposing restrictions on large cash withdrawals on 24 January.

As the United States just reported its worst January stock market in 24 years, this report continues, the Obama regimes master plan of purposefully creating global financial chaos  in order to destabilize enemy countries and create a flight into the US dollar is now failing and has led to the highly influential trends forecaster Gerald Celente to warn people this week that they need to “brace themselves for a disastrous global collapse and riots that will engulf the entire world.”

Not just Celente is issuing warnings either, this report says, but so has too the famous US economist and former Harvard economics professor Terry Burnham who during an interview this past week on PBS NewsHour stated that he was removing his $1 million of life savings from Bank of America because American banks are no longer safe.

This GRU further notes that despite the 6.5% US stock market rally over the last three months, a handful of billionaires are quietly dumping their American stocks . . . and fast.

Most ominous to note in this GRU report are Russian intelligence analysts noting that Snowden’s documents refer to a 15 February “catastrophe” due to occur based upon the US nearing a Black Eagle Trust Fund type “event horizon.”

Though virtually unknown to the American, within two hours of the 11 September 2001 attacks, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) declared a national emergency, and for the first time in US history, invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) easing regulatory restrictions for clearing and settling security trades for the next 15 days.

These changes would allow an estimated $240 billion in covert US government securities to be cleared upon maturity without the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership due to the quickly unfolding Black Eagle Trust Fund plot that would have most certainly destroyed the entire global economic system.

Even more ominous, and, again, virtually unknown to the American people, is that the war the US has been waging for over a decade was, in fact, declared on 10 September 2001 when then Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, testifying before the US Congress[function watch() { [native code] } video HERE], stated that he had declared [/url]war on the Pentagon itself over his discovery of over $2.3 trillion missing from their accounts and warning it was a “matter of life and death.”

To if the Obama regime would resort to a 9/11 type false flag attack once again to protect the Western banking system, this report gravely warns, cannot be ruled out as evidence has long proven what German central bank president Ernst Welteke called “terrorism insider trading” relating to this horrific event.

Specifically, the Chicago Board Options Exchange reported to the SEC that four days before the attack an extremely unbalanced number of trades betting United’s stock price would fall were being placed, followed one day before the attack by the US stock options market authorities reporting to the SEC that an equally extraordinary number of trades were betting that American Airlines stock price would fall too.  As to who made these trades, and made tens-of-millions of dollars from them, the world will never know as the Obama regimes SEC admitted in 2010 that they had destroyed all the documents relating to them.

This GRU report further notes that with the New York City headquarters of the SEC destroyed on 9/11 after the mysterious implosion of World Trade Center Building 7, and the equally devastating cruise missile attack on the Pentagon that destroyed its computing accounting system burying forever the information on where the missing $2.3 trillion went, this new “catastrophic event” being planned by the Obama regime within a fortnight of 15 February can be expected to be as worse, and will, most assuredly, “shake the entire world.”

THE STOCK MARKET IN JAPAN IS COLLAPSING

2014 02 05
By Michael Snyder | Activist Post


Did you see what just happened in Japan? The stock market of the 3rd largest economy on the planet is imploding. On Tuesday, the Nikkei fell by more than 610 points. If that sounds like a lot, that is because it is. The largest one day stock market decline in U.S. history is only 777 points. So far, the Dow is only down about 1000 points during this "correction", but the Nikkei is down more than 2,300 points. The Nikkei has dropped more than 14 percent since the peak of the market, and many analysts believe that this is only just the beginning.




  

Those who have been waiting for a full-blown stock market collapse may be about to get their wish. Japan is absolutely drowning in debt, their central bank is printing money like crazy and the Japanese population is aging rapidly.
