Timewave Zero Stock Market Crash?

Coincidence? The Stock Market and Terence McKenna’s Timewave Zero share an interesting pattern between the dates of June 3 2011 through March 30th of 2012, indicating a possible upcoming stock market crash and/or bank run.

Can this possibly be related to the information that insider Drake or what Ben Fulford have been speaking about?

Who knows where this is heading? "Time" will tell…

very fluid times,

the controlers had invisioned the end of 2012 for the Financial Collapse, but it seems some of the club boys are not reading the script right whilst others are just putting the book down and walking away

compounding an increased resistance from the otherwise in agreeance rivals

as well as a earlier than predicted mass total recall effect

plans within plans have become transparent but in the end all IS as it should be

i do not know when all i know is that it will happen, there is no other alternative as long as petrol is our mainstream energy source

MAJOR EVENT: Liens Filed Against All 12 Federal Reserve Banks

The next major milestone for Mass Arrests of the cabal has now arrived. Liens have now been filed against all twelve Federal Reserve banks. A Cease and Desist Order has also been filed -- to prevent the world's wealth from continuing to be stolen.

PRELUDE TO THE MASS ARRESTS

If you have been following this and certain other websites, then you have already heard the eyewitness testimony suggesting that thousands of conspirators in finance, media, defense, military, corporations and government are about to be arrested.

The mass resignations of CEOs, worldwide -- now numbering well over 450 in the last few months alone -- is a tangible sign that a major event is anticipated within the insider community.

Let's be clear, again, that this is NOT a coup, NOT martial law, and NOT a takeover of the government in any way. ...

Rothschild Attempts To Implement A New Form Of Governance To Brace From Hostile Takeover!

Posted by Volubrjotr on April 15, 2012

Rothschild's City Of London

The Rothschild family plans to secure “long-term control” over its international banking empire by merging its French and British assets into a single entity and implementing a new form of governance that provides immunity from hostile takeover.

The historic reorganisation will reunite the shareholdings of the French and English sides of the family into a single company, listed in Paris.

The bank has made a series of incremental changes in recent years in an attempt to simplify its structure. But people close to the family said it now wanted a “big bang” to make its global operations more efficient. The changes will also “significantly enhance” its capital position ahead of the implementation of the stricter Basel III regulatory requirements.

David de Rothschild, who will be chairman of the merged group, said that the changes would “allow the bank to better meet the requirements of globalisation in general and in our competitive environment in particular, while ensuring my family’s control over the long term”.

The bank said the family’s involvement was the “cornerstone of our culture and competitive positioning”. Mr de Rothschild is the great-great-great-grandson of Mayer Amschel Rothschild, founder of the dynasty in Frankfurt, and is also descended from his son Baron James de Rothschild, who established a bank in Paris in 1812.

The British branch of the dynasty traces its roots to 1798, when another of Mayer’s sons, 21-year-old Nathan Mayer Rothschild, arrived in England from Germany to start a textile business. With a Channel blockade making exports difficult, Nathan turned to London’s financial markets to make his fortune.

Two years ago Rothschild appointed a non-family member, Nigel Higgins, as chief executive for the first time in its 213-year history. Mr Higgins will be joint chief executive of the merged entity, alongside Olivier Pécoux, head of Paris Orléans, a listed French group that acts as a holding vehicle for the Rothschild Group.

Paris Orléans, which has a market value of €540m, will be the vehicle for bringing together the British and French entities. Rothschild & Cie Banque, the holding company for the French business, will transfer its shares into Paris Orléans. Rothschild Continuation Holdings, a Swiss company which owns the group’s other international subsidiaries, including the UK’s NM Rothschild, will do the same. The family will also implement a limited partnership structure that acts as a safeguard against takeovers, similar to ones used by Hermès, the luxury goods group, and tyremaker Michelin.

Because of the strengthening of its control, the Rothschild family is offering to buy out minority shareholders in Paris Orléans, who own about 30 per cent of the stock. They are offering €17 a share, compared with a €16.31 closing price on Wednesday, though hope that the minority interests will decide to stay as investors on Wednesday. Allianz, a key shareholder, said it would remain a long-term investor.

http://www.businessinsider.com/olafur-ragnar-grmsson-iceland-icesave-uk-banks-europe-2012-4

The President Of Iceland Tells Us How He Had The Balls To Stand Up To Britain

.... The tiny country is unique .... in the choice to let three giant banks fail during the financial crisis.

.... Iceland's refusal to pump money into failed banks... was controversial at the time, but now looks increasingly wise. "I have never understood the argument — why a private bank or financial fund is somehow better for the well being and future of the economy than the industrial sector, the IT sector, the creative sector, or the manufacturing sector".

...."It was absolutely very tough.... "Every big financial institution, both in Europe and in my own country was against me, and there were powerful forces, both in Iceland and Europe, that thought my decision was absolutely crazy."

The decision was hugely controversial, and remains a sore spot in relations. ..... He says, "Europe is and should be more about democracy than about financial markets. Based with this choice, it was in the end, clear that I had to choose democracy."

He also blames the British for their role .... he believes Iceland is owed an apology. Ólafur likens the situation to the Falklands war, adding it was a "great offense" that "one of the most peace-loving countries in the world, a founding member of NATO, a strong ally of Britain during the Second World War was put together with al-Qaeda and the Taliban on the official list of terrorist organizations."

Iceland essentially had no choice, Ólafur says.

"If you take the relative size of the Icelandic economy and the British economy," he explains, "and you transfer over to the British economy the sum that the British government was asking the Icelandic taxpayers to be responsible for due to the failure of this private bank, it would have been equal [...] to asking the British taxpayer to be responsible for an £800 billion bill [$1,275 billion] for a failed British bank in Spain and Italy and Greece."

.... Iceland should rather get some new friends."

I also can't help but notice that one of the reception rooms in the Presidential residence contains prominent photos of Ólafur with Vladimir Putin and Hu Jintao — and not a single photo, to my eyes at least, of a European leader.

Michael Tellinger On CNBC Africa 7 May 2012 - Constitutional Court Case

Published on May 7, 2012 by Michaeltellinger

Michael Tellinger is interviewed on CNBC Africa on 7 May 2012 - regarding his Constitutional Court action against Standard Bank, The South African Reserve Bank and the Minister of Finance. On 24 April 2012 Michael served a 1100 page legal document - Notice of Motion on all three parties. The paper presents more than 30 breaches of laws, bills and acts by all three parties that have been unchallenged until now. They have until around 18th May to serve their legal defence. By 28 May all papers have to be submitted after which a date for the trial will be set by the court. This is a full bench of the Constitutional Court - 11 Judges; 22 clerks; and a host of researchers to really get to the bottom of the atrocities committed by the banks against the people of the world.

http://americankabuki.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/south-africa-michael-tellinger-launches.html

South Africa: Michael Tellinger Launches Constitutional Court Action Against Standard Bank, The South African Reserve Bank and The Minister of Finance

Press Release: 24 April 2012

Michael Tellinger Launches Constitutional Court Action Against Standard Bank; and The South African Reserve Bank; and The Minister of Finance.

After a slight technical hiccup last Friday at the Constitutional Court, regarding the binding of a substantially long legal document, Michael Tellinger made global history on the 23rd & 24th April 2012, in Johannesburg when he filed his 1100-page NOTICE OF MOTION against Standard Bank in the Constitutional Court of South Africa, accusing the bank of unlawful and unconstitutional activity. The case number allocated by the Constitutional Court is CCT 28/12.

Tellinger also served the NOTICE OF MOTION on the RESERVE BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA and the MINISTER OF FINANCE, alleging that they are jointly and consciously implicated in the unscrupulous and devious activity that has led to unimaginable financial hardship of the South African people.

There is hardly any South African who has not been harmed in some way by the actions of the banks. For too long have banking giants been unassailable and untouchable by the common man.

It is now official and it can be claimed that never before has such a case been brought against any of these corporations at this level anywhere in the world, where for the first time a layperson has been given direct access to the Constitutional Court regarding the devious activities of the banks.

This case may have started as a matter of principle for Michael Tellinger against STD Bank, but it has escalated to such a degree that every South African and everyone in the world could be affected, because a positive outcome will result in a major public policy shift and the changing of the laws that govern the banks and bringing economic justice to the people.

Tellinger will argue that the lack of control and intervention by the MINISTER OF FINANCE has allowed the banks and the RESERVE BANK to do as they please with impunity and without recourse, and in the process have enslaved millions of honest, hard-working South Africans to a life of misery and debt through the banks’ unconstitutional and unlawful activities.

This historic case will attempt to redress the imbalance that has taken place for centuries by the few that have been called the banking elite. The Constitutional Court is the highest court on constitutional matters, its very foundation being the protector of human rights and its mandate to protect the people.

The Court is mandated to bring legislation in par with the constitutional framework principles and to develop common law principles. The legacy follows Nelson Mandela’s vision, that no matter who or what you represent, equality, justice and the people’s voice shall be harmonised before an independent, unbiased judicial system founded on the principles of rights enshrined in the Constitution.

This case will be a challenge for the Constitutional Court, and Tellinger trusts that it will make its findings properly, considering all the facts to redress the laws and do whatever it needs to do, to redress the hardship of the people caused by financial abuse.

Tellinger appeals to every South African that has been harmed by their bank to join this important action, so that it truly represents millions of honest, hardworking and trusting citizens who have been unable to do so for themselves.

Thousands have been repeatedly frustrated by the invisible protective legal shield around the banks, and the legal system that seems to support the banks.

“Many people carry severe personal grudges against the banks that have done them financial harm, but are powerless to do anything about it.” Said Tellinger

He added that “People are completely oblivious to how they have been conned and deceived by their banks about money and how it is created, but once they find out the terrible truth about how banks really operate and how they use our signature to profiteer on us, and how they make money out of thin air, they will be very angry and realise how important this action against the banks is” he added.

Tellinger urges each and every South African to read as much about this case as possible to inform themselves and to join the petition of signatures that will represent the rest of South Africa in the loudest voice ever presented at the Constitutional Court. Please go to http://www.thebigcase.co.za and sign the petition page.

Details of the hearing will follow as soon as we have been allocated a date by the court. We will keep everyone informed on the above website .

Information from Brazil

I’d like to call your attention to something, I would say “weird”

that’s going on here in Brazil. Just recently, right after the BRICS summit in India, our President

Dilma started a nasty offensive on Brazilian private banks, urging

them for STRONG interest rate cuts. Brazilian state commercial bank

Banco do Brasil slashed its rates by 50% on a single day, in an effort

to push the private banks to do so.

> Here are the weirdness of this move:

Thanks for that information. The move to cut interest rates and increase the money supply is part of an offensive against the Western financial mafia who are printing too many dollars and trying to use those dollars to buy assets in Brazil and other countries. It is a way of fighting back by saying that if they keep trying to print too many dollars, other countries will retaliate by printing more of their own currency too.

Please note that President Putin is not going to the G8 or NATO summits in the USA but is going to the environmental summit in Brazil.

The whole world is sick of those gangsters in the G7 countries and is fighting to remove them from power.

Your president is a champion of humanity.

JPMorgan Estimates Immediate Losses From Greek Exit Could Reach 400 Billion

Tyler Durden on 05/14/2012

"While our earlier discussion of the implications of Greece's exit from the Euro are critical reading to comprehend the real-time game of chicken occurring in front of our eyes, JPMorgan's somewhat more quantifiable estimates of the costs and contagion, given the results of the Greek election have raised market expectations of an exit of Greece from the Euro, also provide key indicators and flows that should be monitored. Identifying what has gone wrong with Greece's co-called 'adjustment' program, they go on to identify key transmission mechanisms to Spain and Italy, how it could potentially improve (Marshall-Plan-esque) and most critically, given the exponentially growing TARGET2 balances, if and when Germany throws in the towel."

20120513_JPM1_0.pngzerohedgeimg

JPMorgan: Greek Contagion

"The results of the Greek election have raised market expectations of an exit of Greece from EMU. How exactly could this exit happen and what flows should we monitor?

Market forces could induce a Greek exit. A potential deadlock between the Greek government and the Troika which terminates funding from the EU/IMF, has the potential to create fear and panic and accelerate the capital and deposit flight out of Greece. Once this capital flight accelerates Greece would likely have to ultimately introduce capital controls. With EU funding being cut and the economic situation deteriorating, Greece will likely to start paying at least part of salaries and pensions in promissory notes or Greek bonds.

Greek banks have run out of ECB eligible collateral already and can only access Bank of Greece’s ELA, but even with ELA, the collateral, typically loans, is not unlimited. They have already borrowed €60bn via  ELA which, assuming 50% haircut corresponds to around €120bn of loan collateral. Outstanding loans are €250bn, so Greek banks have a maximum of €130bn of remaining loan collateral which allows for a maximum of €65bn of additional borrowing from Bank of Greece’s ELA.

This corresponds to around 40% of Greek bank deposits which stood at €170bn as of the end of March. The true maximum amount that Greek banks can borrow via ELA is likely though to be significantly smaller because not all loans are accepted as collateral via ELA. The alternative is for Greek banks to be allowed to issue more government guaranteed paper but the ECB can, with a 2/3rd majority, block a steep and unsustainable increase in Bank of Greece’s ELA. This would effectively cut Bank of Greece off from TARGET2 and force it to eventually issue its own money.

Unfortunately, we need to wait until the end of June for the ECB’s monthly MFI balance sheet data to get an accurate picture of the impact of Greek elections on deposits. Anecdotal evidence from the Greek press and elsewhere suggests that deposit outflows re-accelerated post elections.

It is often stated that Greece’s low primary deficit (projected at 1% or €2bn in 2012) increases the incentive for Greece to walk away from the bailout agreement. This is not true, in our view, given that Greece is still on the hook for the €6.3bn that is needed to clear general government arrears and the extra €23bn that is needed to complete the bank recapitalization plan. And as described above, a deadlock with Troika raises the risk of an accident that leads to Greece’s departure via market forces even if this was not the original intention of the Greek government.

The consequences for Greece would be clearly negative, if not catastrophic following an exit: high inflation, fuel shortages, big reduction in living standards, increase in social tensions or even unrest, political isolation internationally. This is why the chances of a Greek exit should be logically significantly below 50%."

All should listen when Paul Krugman talks and he ends this following blog with this:

And we’re talking about months, not years, for this to play out.

Article from NYTimes.com

link: http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/05/13/eurodammerung-2/?smid=tw-NytimesKrugman&seid=auto

quote

Some of us have been talking it over, and here’s what we think the end game looks like:

1. Greek euro exit, very possibly next month.

2. Huge withdrawals from Spanish and Italian banks, as depositors try to move their money to Germany.

3a. Maybe, just possibly, de facto controls, with banks forbidden to transfer deposits out of country and limits on cash withdrawals.

3b. Alternatively, or maybe in tandem, huge draws on ECB credit to keep the banks from collapsing.

4a. Germany has a choice. Accept huge indirect public claims on Italy and Spain, plus a drastic revision of strategy — basically, to give Spain in particular any hope you need both guarantees on its debt to hold borrowing costs down and a higher eurozone inflation target to make relative price adjustment possible; or:

4b. End of the euro.

And we’re talking about months, not years, for this to play out.

quote ends.

Some interesting times to say the least. And all in good time for 12.21.2012.

Deutsche Bank, the largest bank in the world, has assets of more than $3 trillion, and it gets a Weiss rating of D; which means weak.

Plus look at some other huge banks with D- and E+ ratings:

Bank Weiss Rating

Crédit Agricole (France) D-

Société Générale (France) D-

Barclays (UK) D-

Banco Santander (Spain) D-

Royal Bank of Scotland (UK) D-

Lloyds Bank E 

UniCredit SpA (Italy)  E+

Please understand our ratings scale:

A = excellent, B = good, C = fair, D = weak,

E = very weak. Minus sign = lower third of a

grade range; plus sign = upper third.

Also please note that BNP Paribas has been

upgraded to C- 

But the most shocking news of all is this: These weak and very weak banks have assets totaling $15.7 trillion.

That's more than the total assets of ALL U.S. banks combined.

  A big war has been in progress over gold and silver versus fiat currency (USD).

  This has been going on recently between factions wanting to control world finances.

  The bad boys ( The big US banks, chiefly JP Morgan) have wanted the prices of the metals

  low in order to maintain the USD. Another party ( Don't really know who, but Japan is rumored involved and....maybe a Chinese hand) hopped in and drove prices even lower and are purchasing physical in huge quantities. This is the latest from Jim Willie from www.goldenjackass.com . This guy is a reliable source of valuable info over the years and seems to get good intel.

    "After a seeming tough messy but productive week in the gold trading trench warfare, my reliable gold trader source offered a summary with more expressed satisfaction than ever conveyed in all the years we have been in contact. It is not completely over as a war, but the Battle of the Bulge and Battle of Midway seem concluded, each a major victory. This message is of chest pounding with a foot atop a dead victim. The gold price is surely depressed, but the gold cartel is reportedly mortally wounded. The path upward might be cleared to the point of ending this latest round of price suppression. The Good Guys have finished a mission for this round. The gold trader has a keen knowledge of WW2 and hardened experience of Russia. He wrote, "This is great. The market is cleaned out when it comes to physical. The purchases to drain the cartel are 1000 MT [metric tons] per shot/transaction. The Boyz are illiquid and have to sell at budget bargain prices. The ones they used to patronize and torment are now screwing them back using a telephone pole up the hind quarters with the tip wrapped in razor wire. No prisoners are being taken. I have never seen such merciless executions to that magnitude in my entire career. The target banks call for help and protection, not knowing that they are actually confronted with their executioners. It must be a lonely feeling when the only thing they sense is their own warm blood running down their bodies. They know they are done. It is like the final scene in Enemy at the Gates where Vassili Zaitsev, the legendary Russian sniper, out-maneuvers the German Major Konig sharpshooter. The major takes of his cap, looks at Zaitzev who put a bullet right between his eyes. The real players know when it is game over." This note is encouragement to the extreme for investors to stay in the game, hang onto the gold & silver bars, and wait for the rise like a phoenix in precious metals price since the resistance by the cartel has been significantly removed to the point of assuring victory with a heap of confidence. The Eastern Coalition has transferred over one quarter of a $trillion in gold bullion in under three months from the Western gold cartel camp and munitions cache. They are left defenseless in New York, London, and Western Europe, unable to stop what comes, which in plain terms will be a rise in the gold price that zooms past $2000/oz and finds its rightful level based on value and equilibrium free from the tight grip of suppression. The Jackass cannot promise a date when the historical phoenix rise will occur, but it is on this side of the horizon. The outcome is assured. It is unclear what the laurels will look like or what the air will be like relaxing and healing from the battle waged, sitting on the porch sipping ice tea or whisky sours. Details on the denouement are not at all clear."

I'll predict in another 20-30 years that to be a banker or an economist will be seen in the same light as being a prostitute or a drug dealer.

If you are one, shame will be attached to the occupation and it won't be something you'll admit to in public.

I dunno, with the advent of Bitcoin, if the Internet survives this decade, we'll probably see it and clones of it take over the role of banking and crowd out the centralized banks that everyone knows and uses now.

I remember reading last year of a very fashionable drinking club in NY which had banned bankers.  Can't remember the name now.
