Trump Hangs Portrait of Andrew Jackson in Oval Office

I agree with the infographic above. President Trump is signaling. I’m not sure that the signal isn’t just that Harriet Tubman will not replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. But we can be optimistic and hope that Trump’s actions signal a willingness to fight the power of the (((central bankers.)))

The Hill

President Trump hung a portrait of Andrew Jackson in the Oval Office on Tuesday, The New York Times reports, an apparent nod to the populist sentiments of the new administration.

Trump’s rise has often been compared to the populist election of Jackson, including by some of the new president’s own team.

Chief White House strategist Steve Bannon called Trump’s inauguration speech on Friday “Jacksonian,” saying it struck the populist and patriotic tones Jackson was known for.

Trump has also expressed admiration for the seventh president, as well, calling Jackson “an amazing figure in American history — very unique so many ways,” through a spokesperson last week.

Jackson, a former military officer and U.S. senator, was known for his fiery temper and bombastic rhetoric. After he lost his first presidential bid in 1824, for example, he claimed the system was “rigged.”

Jackson’s legacy is also rife with controversy. He signed the Indian Removal Act of 1930, paving the way for what is now known as the “Trail of Tears” shortly after his presidency ended, in which the Cherokee Nation was removed from its lands east of the Mississippi in the massive forced migration.

Last year, the Treasury Department announced plans for a new $20 bill that would bump Jackson’s portrait for that of Harriet Tubman.

Jackson removed the Indians. Trump is removing the Mexicans and Muslims.

Is history repeating itself? It looks like it.

India Confiscates Gold, Even Jewelry, In Raids On Hidden Money

STOCK PHOTO OF GOLD BARS.
Side profile of a mature man counting gold bars

If India goes into a full-blown Venezuela style economic crisis that includes food riots, the West has much to fear. There are millions of Hindus and Sikhs ready and able to flood Australia and New Zealand to escape the turmoil in their own country.

What the (((powers that be))) like to do is to conduct social experiments. India is the laboratory for demonetization and gold confiscation, it seems. Once the results of the experiment are in, the elites will then turn their eyes to confiscating wealth in other countries.

If the Indians have any way to resist this theft of their wealth by (((the one percent))), then break out the pitchforks and machetes and get to work, guys.

Zerohedge

Global financial repression picks up steam, led by India. After declaring large denomination notes illegal, India now targets gold.

It’s not just gold bars or bullion. The government has raided houses, no questions asked, confiscating jewelry.

For background to this article, please see my November 27 article Cash Chaos in India, 86% of Money in Circulation Withdrawn; Cash Still King in Japan.

Large denomination means 500-rupee ($7.30) and 1,000-rupee notes ($14.60), which account for more than 85 percent of the money supply. They are no longer legal tender, effective immediately.

The chaos accompanying “demonetization” hasn’t eased up noticeably. It seems likely the disruption to the economy, especially in cash-centric rural India, will hit growth sharply for at least a few quarters. It’s tough to say for how long and by how much; we are in uncharted territory here and guesses have varied widely. But many analysts agree with former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who’s predicting the new policy will knock 2 percentage points off that world-beating GDP growth rate.

Demonetization was originally sold as a “surgical strike on black money” — the illicit piles of cash many rich Indians have accumulated out of sight of the taxman. It’s now clear the policy has been anything but surgical. Worse, uncomfortable questions are being asked about whether the complicated rules and exemptions that have accompanied demonetization have allowed black-money holders to launder most of their cash. Of late, Modi’s chosen to focus instead on demonetization as means of advancing a cashless economy.

Yet the idea of a war on unaccounted-for wealth remains central to demonetization’s popular appeal, which means Modi will have to find other ways to keep that narrative going. So the government has now begun to push income-tax officials to conduct raids on those who might be concealing assets in forms other than cash, such as gold.

There’s already enough fear of such raids becoming common again that the government felt the need to step in to quell some of the anxiety. That didn’t help much. The government “clarified,” among other things, the rules governing when tax officials could seize gold: Nothing would happen “if the holding is limited to 500 grams per married woman, 250 grams per unmarried woman and 100 grams per male.” It also said that there would be no limits on jewelry “provided it is acquired… from inheritance.” Also, the “officer conducting [the] search has discretion to not seize [an] even higher quantity of gold jewelry.”

What this means, unfortunately, is that India’s income tax officers have just won the lottery. During a raid, they can, on the spot, decide whether or not to confiscate a family’s gold holdings. And remember, India has an enormous amount of gold — 20,000 metric tons, much of it inherited. (The rules governing simple searches are different, but few know that.) Rather than cleaning up tax administration, the government has handed tax officials more power than they’ve had for decades. The rich will pay what they need to escape harassment; the rest will suffer.

The last line in the preceding article says all you need to know about what’s happening: “The rich will pay what they need to escape harassment; the rest will suffer.”

Evidence suggests the politically connected, and their friends, knew about the ban on cash and acted in advance. Everyone else is stuck.

India’s raid on gold reinforces its ban on cash. Short term aside, these kinds of actions will increase demand for gold.

What’s Next?

I keep wondering: what’s next? People pretend they know, I admit I do not. However, I am quite sure a currency crisis is coming. Where it strikes first is unknown, but the list of likely candidates increases every year.

My spotlight has been on Japan, China, and the EU. India caught me off guard, but it adheres to my general theory this pot will eventually boil over in a cascade from an unexpected place, outside the US.

US actions may cause a currency crisis, but I believe a crisis will hit elsewhere first. If I am correct, gold will be the safe haven, regardless of currency, but especially where the crisis hits.

The Historical Truth About the Civil War (Video)

This (((Steve Pieczenik))) video offers a critical look at Abraham Lincoln. In Steve’s eyes Lincoln is NOT a great president, but a terrible one. I think the video offers some truth, but not all of it.

To get at more of the truth, I’ve embedded a youtube comment that focuses on the role of (((bankers))) as the cause of the American civil war.

Published on Nov 17, 2016

Abraham Lincoln was gay. The Civil War was not about freeing the slaves. Lincoln was actually quoted as being abhorrently racist. Get the truth about the Civil War in this episode of Historic Truths w/ Steve R. Pieczenik.

An alternate view to that presented by Pieczenik is offered in this youtube comment:

Pieczenik, this is not accurate. It is true that “freeing the slaves” was not the primary casus belli, although modern court historians give it undeserved attention. If freeing the slaves were the cause for the war, the North would have simply purchased the slaves from their owners at market value, and banned slavery thereafter. This would have been orders of magnitude cheaper than war. That this wasn’t done is all one needs to know in order to understand that slavery was not the war’s cause, although it made (and still makes) for great propaganda.

Fundamentally it was a currency war, as most wars are. The United States was not under a Rothschild owned central bank, but had freed itself during the revolutionary war from just that. Few people today know that the Revolutionary War was fought primarily to free the colonies from the British central bank, and not as a “tax revolt,” although the taxes themselves would have never been necessary if the British currency was not a representation of private debt.

The Rothschild dynasty viewed the free colonies as a threat, and sought to Balkanize the country to make it more manageable and more susceptible to coercion. Luckily for the US, Czarist Russia, themselves an enemy of the Rothschild dynasty and who had quelled multiple Rothschild funded pseudo-communist rebellions in their own country, aligned with Lincoln and gave the North victory primarily through the means of the Russian fleet. This fleet effectively prevented the Rothschilds from exerting their desired influence in order to bolster the South. Balkanization was prevented.

Further exacerbating the war was Lincoln’s decision to fund it with Federal Dollars, rather than borrowing from Rothschild banks. Lincoln’s aim for the war was, above all else, the centralization of Federal power and the coalescence of the states into one unified nation. He felt that the notion that individual states were sovereign participants in a union from which they could freely depart had to be destroyed or else the country would be swept away by its foes.

Was 600,000 (mostly white) deaths worth it? We’ll never know. We do know that, regardless of the Civil War, the United States was later co-opted by the banking dynasties via the Federal Reserve. These are all facts that our good friends like (((Pieczenik))) prefer not to mention.

The Rothschild Conspiracy Explained in Four Minutes (Video)

Published on Feb 16, 2015
I know this is a lot different from my other videos, but I really wanted to make a clear and straightforward conspiracy video that people could really comprehend.

How did the Rothschild family become the wealthiest family on Earth? What do North Korea, Iran and Cuba have in common? What objectives did 9/11 really try to achieve? This video attempts to find answers to those questions.

►Please remember that that this is a conspiracy theory. This story isn’t officially recognized by an official entity, but free speech allows us to theorize and ask questions.

►I do not support anti-Americanism or anti-Semitism in any way, I’m simply laying out certain facts as I think people deserve to know what is in accordance with reality.

Karl Denninger’s Economic Explanation for Globalism’s Open Borders Mania

ponzi-scheme scam

Social security and private pension funds that require large returns on investments in order to live up to promised payout amounts are not sustainable, according to finance blogger and political activist Karl Denninger.

Decades ago I recall reading in the Wall Street Journal, which favors no borders, that if Mexicans (and Hindus, Asians, etc.) did not come to the USA in large numbers that our social insurance programs such as Social Security and Medicare would go broke. Furthermore, they said we need young Mexicans to work in the USA in order to buy things to keep the economy humming. Older whites just weren’t spending enough, nor were whites reproducing in the numbers needed to keep old Mr. Economy humming along.

Let’s pick up with Denninger:

Excerpt from Market-Ticker

Since attempting to entice the developed societies in Europe that have educated and motivated people to reproduce at a rate that will (for a while) sustain said promises has failed and there is no willingness to admit to the frauds nor to dial back their progression the only alternative is to import a huge number of people on the speculation that they will allow the game to continue, even if just for a little while.

It won’t work, of course, because said rapefugees will not assimilate; they are not only culturally unwilling to do so they have no reason to do so since they are guaranteed handouts that make it unnecessary to do so! Never mind that their present circumstances vastly improve on their previous condition even without work. As a result statistically zero of them have found work thus far but they sure have assaulted women and children across the entirety of Europe whether it be in public swimming pools or at New Year’s celebrations.

In other words the “price” of no-tariff “free trade” is the reduction of women to serfdom and sexual slavery, the murder of gays on a wholesale basis, the destruction of civil society and law along with the wholesale******of children.

Can I ask where the men are in this discussion and why there haven’t been a plethora of declarations of war against Frau Feurher Merkel and the rest of the Euro “leadership” over this crap?

Is the rest of Europe literally so addicted to “cheap credit” and the promulgation of mathematically provable ponzi schemes that will and must collapse that they’re willing to sacrifice half of their society to keep playing the game of increasing stock and other asset prices for a few more months or years? And where is the half that is being sacrificed?

Our emphasis on this site revolves around race. Namely, the power elites desire to disempower whites politically, socially, and economically via a process of soft white genocide.

There is a genuine hatred of the white race by the (((powers that be))), but there’s also a desire to keep the System going until its been milked dry and wealth is even more concentrated than it is now.

As Denninger suggests, the blacks and browns from turd world countries pouring into the West aren’t going to save the economy. However, their presence offers opportunities for the (((elites))) to become even richer as fiat money printing schemes rule the financial roost.

Libya Accuses EU of Encouraging Illegal Migration to Europe

RESCUED MIGRANTS GET A FREE BOAT RIDE TO EUROPE.

There’s only one conspiracy. One explanation. One wish.

The European Union seeks to turn Europe nonwhite.

Even the Libyans can see that EU policy is like a magnet, pulling the nonwhite hoardes into formerly white countries on an unprecedented scale.

If Libya can see it, the (((leaders of the EU))) can see it.

They haven’t changed the continent’s immigration policy because it’s giving them what they want–a European caliphate where whites are a small minority.

Sky News

The Libyan coastguard has told Sky News that the EU’s Operation Sophia, which was devised to prevent people smuggling, is actually encouraging illegal migrants to make the perilous journey to Europe.

Libya has become one of the main routes to the continent following a controversial EU deal with Turkey to close down the crossing to Greece across the Aegean Sea.

Under international law Europe’s naval vessels cannot enter Libyan waters; instead they must stay at least 12 nautical miles from the shore.

It means smugglers can take advantage by dragging boats out to sea and then setting their course for international waters – and providing they do not stray from Libyan waters they face no chance of getting caught.

If they then get into trouble the migrants and the smugglers believe they will be saved – and often they are with more than 13,000 migrants rescued so far.

The coastguard’s head of operations, Colonel Tawfik Alskir, said: “People, when they get rescued, call their friends to tell them that there are EU vessels only 20 miles from Libyan waters to save them.”

This, he adds, acts as an incentive for others to risk the journey.

He also says that the migration crisis is getting worse and by the end of the year a record number of illegal migrants will have made their way across the Mediterranean to Europe.

SO MANY AFRICANS, SO FEW BOATS.
