Consolidating US Money Power: The Four Horsemen of Global Banking

If you want to know where the true power center of the world lies, follow the money - cui bono. According to Global Finance magazine, as of 2010 the world’s five biggest banks are all based in Rothschild fiefdoms UK and France.

They are the French BNP ($3 trillion in assets), Royal Bank of Scotland ($2.7 trillion), the UK-based HSBC Holdings ($2.4 trillion), the French Credit Agricole ($2.2 trillion) and the British Barclays ($2.2 trillion).

In the US, a combination of deregulation and merger-mania has left four mega-banks ruling the financial roost. According to Global Finance, as of 2010 they are Bank of America ($2.2 trillion), JP Morgan Chase ($2 trillion), Citigroup ($1.9 trillion) and Wells Fargo ($1.25 trillion). I have dubbed them the Four Horsemen of US banking.

Dollar Weakens

Chart update:

A Golden Buying Opportunity

This latest pullback in the commodities space has presented long-term bulls and inflationists with a terrific buying opportunity in the inflation hedge are.
Indeed, Silver looks to have put in a base and is now challenging resistance at $37.50. If we can break that level with conviction we’re off the to the races again.
The picture is even rosier for Gold which not only held its trendline (and the first line of support) but has bow broken out of a triangle pattern to the upside: a move that predicts a re-test of the highs

Senator Rand Paul Vs.The Patriot Act Renewal

The Senate will hold a critical cloture vote on renewing the Patriot Act at 5 pm eastern today, and only the immediate action of C4L members and other true patriots nationwide will put a halt to the ever-expanding surveillance state and save the Fourth Amendment from being pushed further into the shredder.

Contact Sen. Bill Nelson by phone at (202) 224-5274 and Sen. Marco Rubio by phone at (202) 224-3041 to demand they vote against renewing the “Patriot” Act on every vote – including each cloture vote.

On Friday, May 27, three provisions of the misnamed “Patriot” Act are set to expire.

In clear violation of their oaths to uphold the Constitution, the statists in Washington, D.C. are determined not to let that happen.

You see, last week, the House GOP, under the leadership of John Boehner and Eric Cantor (who are turning their backs on the limited government mandate they claimed to support in November 2010), cut yet another deal with Harry Reid – this time to extend the “Patriot” Act for four more years with as little debate as possible!

A four-year extension “conveniently” puts the next renewal vote in 2015 – a non-election year when our brave politicians won’t have to answer for their actions at the polls.

Empowered by the Republicans’ collapse on civil liberties, Harry Reid filed cloture last Thursday.

Don’t accept the statists’ pathetic excuses for one minute – a vote for “cloture” today is a vote FOR the Fourth Amendment-shredding “Patriot” Act.

Please don’t miss this point – if cloture (allowing for the bill to be debated and voted on) fails each and every time he tries it, Harry Reid CANNOT extend the “Patriot” Act.

Period.

But your senators are used to skating through on cloture votes and claiming that they are just harmless “procedure.”

Fellow Patriot, if you don’t turn up the heat on them today, they’ll say they didn’t hear from their constituents about a “procedural” vote – even one that enabled Reid to get everything he wanted with a simple majority vote on final passage.

Your phone calls today will keep that story from being true. You’ll be able to hold them accountable because you told them before the vote EXACTLY what they were going to do to the Constitution.

They need to know–TODAY–that the freedom movement is alive, well, and finished with watching them destroy our liberties.

That’s why your immediate action is needed!

Contact Sen. Bill Nelson by phone at (202) 224-5274 and Sen. Marco Rubio by phone at (202) 224-3041 to demand they vote against renewing the “Patriot” Act on every vote – including each cloture vote.

Reid’s bill is essentially the same bill the Senate and President were trying to rush through Congress without any debate in February – before Rand Paul and C4L members forced them to agree to a 90-day extension.

For ten long years, Americans have been given a false choice by their representatives and senators between trading some of their liberties for so-called “security” and experiencing a new 9/11- style terrorist attack.

This viewpoint was as apparent as ever during the House Judiciary Committee’s final “Patriot” Act hearing, where your pressure ensured C4L was heard in front of Congress.

The problem for our politicians, and in fact for all Americans who feel “safer” after trading some of their liberties, is that 9/11 didn’t occur because of a failure to gather useable intelligence. Rather, it occurred because of the bureaucrats’ failure to use the intelligence that had been gathered.

This is typical of the federal government. Whenever it fails to do its jobs properly, its solution is to throw more money at the problem and grab more power.

The abominable acts that occurred on 9/11 were unjustifiable, but we cannot allow the White House and Congress to destroy the rights and liberties that made this nation great!

Contact Sen. Bill Nelson by phone at (202) 224-5274 and Sen. Marco Rubio by phone at (202) 224-3041 to demand they vote against renewing the “Patriot” Act on every vote – including each cloture vote.

Campaign for Liberty has done everything we can to make our position clear to the politicians on Capitol Hill. Now it’s up to grassroots activists like you to make your voices heard and turn up the heat.

Politics really is just a game of numbers. Will your call be the one that changes your senators’ vote from “YEA” to “NAY”?

Please, help C4L restore our civil liberties and roll back the surveillance state by taking just a few minutes out of your day to call your senators.

Remember Benjamin Franklin’s wise words: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

The choice whether or not to continue giving up essential Liberty is ours to make today.

In Liberty,

Mark Cross
Executive Director

James Turk: Gold Nearing a Staggering Up-Move

James Turk in his latest is calling for a repeat of gold's 1982 action this summer (for those who don't remember, in 1982 gold soared 50% in less than 3 months over the late summer).
That means Turk is looking for a gold price of ~ $2250 by fall.
If Turk and others such as Sinclair are correct, and gold reaches anywhere near $2250 by fall 2011, The Doc's call of $80 silver by end of November will be in the bag. We recommend readers continue to accumulate physical silver during this consolidation period, and be prepared to buy further this week thanks to cartel games during options expiration. Once option expiration is passed and the cartel's recess is over, look for silver to make an attempt at the $40 level over the next 1-2 weeks.

John Williams Exclusive - Hyperinflation & US Dollar Collapse

When asked how quickly could we see a dollar collapse Williams responded, “It could happen very quickly, but they (the Fed) will try to forestall it as much as they can. When you do get a real panic it may not be containable. In terms of the hyperinflation I don’t think it will be held off beyond 2014. What we’re now seeing in the pickup in inflation here eventually will be seen as the beginnings of it.”

Paper vs Real: Exit From Normal, Ecological Economics, and Probabilistic Regimes in One Chart

A 20 year chart of the US 30 Year Treasury Bond vs. a broad commodity index is the occassion to make several macroeconomic observations. The comparison reveals how the purchasing power of the long-dated US Treasury Bond has fared against a basket of commodities over the period. Tracking the ability of the US Treasury bond, denominated in US Dollars, to maintain its viability as a capital storage unit is not arcane. Rather, it is central. All institutions and individuals eventually use financial assets to purchase energy, natural resources, and labor. | see: 30 Year Treasury Bond by Price vs. The Reuters CRB Index–CCI Continuous.

“Silver Price: The Least You Should Worry About”

I heard some disturbing reports about silver supply last month that I felt every investor should know. And while precious metals are currently in correction mode, the long-term concerns with supply won’t disappear anytime soon. In attempt to get a handle on the bullion market, I spoke to Andy Schectman of Miles Franklin, who has contacts that run deep in the industry. What he sees everyday might just compel you to count how many ounces you own…

What If the U.S. Treasury Defaults?

Fascinating article on what could happen if we default or continue down the road of monetary madness. Worth your time. Can't help but wonder if anyone is paying attention in the white house?

A financial crisis is surely going to happen as big or bigger than the one we had in 2008 if we continue to behave the way we're behaving," says Stanley Druckenmiller, the legendary investor and onetime fund manager for George Soros. Is this another warning from Wall Street that Congress must immediately raise the federal debt limit to prevent the end of civilization?

Observations of the Silver Smack Down

Most of you have very little idea about how this smack down could have even happened, let me break it down. First and foremost there is a physical silver market. This is a natural market that we all understand intrinsically as little children. The free market pricing mechanism reflects supply and demand. If silver is in short supply relative to the amount of money the price of silver rises. The opposite is true also. Our debt based money is a promise to pay. I heard a funny comment over the weekend, the dollar is an IOU nothing, the Euro is a who owes you nothing. In this physical silver market, you essentially trade paper assets for real assets. Real assets do not have any counter party risk and do not rely on a promise to pay to determine the value of that asset. This is why when the generational ponzi scheme break,s all paper assets will become worthless and silver will be king.

I Smell BS

I Smell BS
By Silver Shield, on May 5th, 2011
So we got Bob Moriarty crowing all day on my blog about his third call to short silver in three months after missing a 60% move up. The banksters coordinated attack on silver right when Osama bin Laden news came out and coincidentally my 4 sites get taken down. Throw in an unprecedented 5 margin raises in two weeks and a 28% drop in 4 days of trading. You would think that the fundamentals had changed and billions of ounces of silver suddenly flooded the coffers of the CRIMEX for such a hard and fast drop.

Or the we are pulling all of the troops home and cutting the Military Industrial Complex to by 75%.
Or suddenly the economy is back and manufacturing is creating jobs and a trade surplus.
Or the China had a change of mind and decided double up on dollars and keep buying even more American debt.
Or the the sock puppets in Washington figured out a way to finance $4 trillion or even cut the trillion dollar deficits.
But alas nothing has changed, in fact things have gotten even more bullish for silver.

Eric Sprott - “Sprott Has More Physical Silver Now Than Ever!

With silver recently plummeting from $50 to the $40 area, today King World News interviewed Eric Sprott, Founder of Sprott Asset Management to clear up some misperceptions about Sprott’s sales of PSLV. There is a great deal of misinformation out there regarding what Sprott was actually doing when SAM sold some PSLV. When asked about what has transpired Sprott remarked, “Well Eric in response to your question, any proceeds that we’ve received from selling PSLV have immediately gone back into silver or other silver equities. And I can tell you we have the highest position in physical ownership that we’ve ever had, and we have not lost one ounce of our encouragement for the outlook for the silver price.”

It’s the End of the Dollar (As We Know It)

Do we feel fine? With each passing month, the dollar moves closer to becoming what one might call a ‘normal’ currency, in that it is gradually losing the pre-eminent reserve currency status it has enjoyed since the 1920s. In certain months, including that just passed, the end approaches rather more swiftly. While we have always regarded the demise of the fiat dollar as both necessary and inevitable, it is important to understand that, using history as a guide, what lies ahead is highly likely to be some combination of unpredictable, disorderly and even dangerous. But rather than stand as deer in the headlights, investors need to take action to prepare. Most important, they need to diversify away from not only dollar assets, but from fiat currencies and financial assets generally.

Pure Criminality: Big shake down

Great article on todays shake down of the silver markets. Don't need anything else to explain it. Jon
I hope precious metals newbies have not been emotionally derailed by last night's obvious ambush of silver by the corrupt Wall Street bullion bank cartel. It's funny because just yesterday I was chatting with my significant other, who happens to be from Las Vegas, about organized crime. She mentioned that Vegas is full of organized crime gangs, not just the casino mafia. I replied that any area that generates tons of cash flow is mired with organized crime and extreme corruption: Vegas, DC and Wall Street most prominently (obviously there are others but those are the biggest). Little did I know that several hours later the action in electronic silver trading would ironically highlight my point about Wall Street!
