Fear is the mindkiller
Fear is a natural emotion to feel now. It is hard to keep this powerful emotion in perspective. Only if you can feel the fear, let it pass and let reason return can you do anything good, effective or important.

CBDCs: Central Banks/Federal Reserve To Implement Global Debt-Based Blockchain Money Unit
CBDCs are traditional money, but in digital form; issued and governed by a country's central bank. By contrast, cryptocurrencies like bitcoin are produced by solving complex maths puzzles, and governed by disparate online communities instead of a centralised body.

The common denominator is that both cryptocurrencies and CBDCs, to a varying degree, are based on blockchain technology, a digital ledger that allows transactions to be recorded and accessed in real time by multiple parties.

Central banks recognize digital money may be an improvement over physical money, but a central bank designed digital currency will not resemble a decentralized cryptocurrency. While some retailers accept bitcoin as a form of payment, cryptocurrencies are not recognised as legal tender - which CBDCs, by definition, would be.

And unlike central bank money, both traditional and digital, the value of cryptocurrencies is determined entirely by the market, and not influenced by factors such as monetary policy or trade surpluses.

Privately owned central banks want a single global blockchain electronic currency unit which is debt-based and under their central control. The ability to issue and control unlimited quantities of debt-based currency is what keeps the central banks (Federal Reserve) vastly more powerful than governments and entire economies.

Alternatives to Profit Maximization and The Fragility of Power
We must look for the "signs of the times" pointing to the coming of the Kingdom of God or, as John Holloway puts it, the signs "of the presence of the material power of the cry." The world of struggle against the instrumental power that oppresses and exploits people often seems invisible. New struggles are constantly breaking out-making visible exploitation and oppression by power. Struggles for justice and freedom touch a core point of belonging to the people of God.

How To Crush A Bankers' Dictatorship: A Lesson from 1933
How the 1929 Crash was Manufactured

While everyone knows that the 1929 market crash unleashed four years of hell in America which quickly spread across Europe under the great depression, not many people have realized that this was not inevitable, but rather a controlled blowout.

The bubbles of the 1920s were unleashed with the early death of President William Harding in 1923 and grew under the careful guidance of JP Morgan's President Coolidge and financier Andrew Mellon (Treasury Secretary) who de-regulated the banks, imposed austerity onto the country, and cooked up a scheme for Broker loans allowing speculators to borrow 90% on their stock. Wall Street was deregulated, investments into the real economy were halted during the 1920s and insanity became the norm. In 1925 broker loans totalled $1.5 billion and grew to $2.6 billion in 1926 and hit $5.7 billion by the end of 1927. By 1928, the stock market was overvalued fourfold!

The Virus And Capitalism
To understand why Wall Street should be left to rot this go around, look back to January 1980, when the current bull market can be estimated to have begun. The S&P 500 has to fall by another 2/3rds, from 2,400 to 910, to get to the normal valuation level (CAPE P/E = 8.5) at which this epoch of finance capitalism began. Understand, the S&P 500 at 910 wouldn't represent a crisis, just a more reasonable valuation level. The financial crisis, to the extent there is one, is due to systemic leverage, the same problem that Wall Street faced in 2008.

The pandemic is but the catalyst for current financial troubles, not the cause. As was warned in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, etc., the Obama Administration's bailouts were to make rich people rich again, not to 'save the economy.' So, here we are ten years later and the previously bailed out are once again telling us that the Federal government has to bail out corporations and the rich to 'save the economy.' 'The economy' is indeed in trouble, but it is in trouble because of the fragility created to benefit corporations and the rich, not because stock prices have fallen.

We're In A Recession, And It's Likely To Get Worse
In an interview, economist Jack Rasmus pointed to U.S. economy weaknesses that belie government claims of "sound fundamentals." Record consumer, corporate and government debt, stagnant wages, workers who have not recovered from the last economic collapse, financial markets addicted to trillions from the Federal Reserve, college debt, unaffordable healthcare, and inadequate retirement funds; 40 percent of people in the US can't handle a $400 emergency and 60 percent could not handle a $1,000 surprise expense.

Corporate Collapse: corporations are also holding record levels of debt. The corporate bond market will shrink and corporate credit will shut down; corporations are switching their credit lines to cash which will lead to businesses being unable to refinance, and be the prelude to mass defaults and bankruptcies, increasing unemployment, and further consumer collapse.

The > $2 trillion dollar US junk bond market, followed by the $3 trillion dollar BBB corporate debts are really also junk that has been improperly reclassified as BBB: $5 trillion at rapid risk for default including fossil fuel companies and retail stores, which will then spread to higher grade corporate debt.

US corporations propped up by the Federal Reserve as well as the Obama and Trump administrations, including free money from the Fed that has artificially escalated stock prices as companies used the money for stock buybacks. Bailouts of the Obama era, followed by Trump's $4.5 trillion 10 year tax cuts created a windfall making up 23 percent of the 27 percent rise in corporate profits in 2018. The US corporate economy is very fragile.

The Federal Reserve Dictatorship Runs Amok Against Savers
March 18th, 2020

If you are a saver in a money market account or in a bank, you've already noticed your dwindling interest income as interest rates have been at their lowest in modern American history. Well, brace yourself. Your saving account has just become little more than a lock box, thanks to the supreme dictatorship of the Federal Reserve.

On Sunday, March 15, the Federal Reserve announced that it would cut interest rates to "near zero."

After ignoring the largely unproductive spiral in corporate debt, now a staggering $9.3 trillion, the risk of a domino effect from underwater "zombie companies" is pushing the Fed toward an orgy of printing money for an anticipatory bailout of profitable corporations - not depleted savers.

The Federal Reserve is our version of what other countries call a Central Bank. The Fed is not funded by Congress; its budget comes primarily from interest on government securities and fees from financial institutions. Bankers influence who gets appointed to its Board of Governors. Bankers can also elect three directors directly to the boards of the Fed's regional Boards.

The Fed decides in secret the fate of the monetary policy, which includes the interest rates paid on your savings. There are no public hearings or open dockets for submission of views. No real explanations by the Fed; just dictates. It is a government of its own inside our government - the epitome of corporate socialism.

Fed Unleashes Bazookas! Will It Cause Hyperinflation? (Explained)
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyj-unafl4A

The stock market is crashing and > THE FED "PUT" ISN'T WORKING!! < HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW! The Federal Reserve has pulled out every four letter "solution" they have to prop up assets and the stock market. PDCF, MMLF, CPFF, and I'm sure I'm leaving out a few!! What does this do to the Feds balance sheet and how will affect the US dollar? The Fed will likely print trillions over the next few months alone! If those currency units get into the real economy we could see hyperinflation. I'm not saying it's likely but the probabilities are far greater than 0%. Additionally, the Fed is basically putting every asset (equity and debt) on to their balance sheet. If they pay 100 cents on the dollar and the loans they're giving are 0% and these loans can be permanently rolled over, the Fed is basically buying stocks and bonds directly.

The questions are really what happens to the US dollar, does the US economy go into deflation or inflation? What happens to the price of gold, silver, real estate, and bitcoin?

2020 Collapse: Greater Catastrophe Than 9/11 and October 1929 Multiplied By <--EACH OTHER
hi everyone. Hope you're doing well in the New World Order.

the Federal Reserve has now taken over Planet Earth.

They have just this week instituted plans to buy up the corporate debt of overleveraged, indebted corporations that have spent the last decade and more buying back their own indebted stock (in addition to all the Trillion-Dollar-Per-Day of debt-fiat-currency-printed-on-a-digital-screen bailouts, overnight repos for WS banks, propping up the short end of the bond market yield curve in order to make it look as though the financial markets aren't overleveraged etc. etc. ad $$Trillion-infinitum). They've also sent Trillions of dollars in liquidity / capital injections to other global central banks (BoE, ECB, BoJ).

the Fed will remain in control until the complete collapse / and-or hyperinflationary disapperance of the U.S. dollar as the world's reserve.

Friday March 20, 2020 SPECIAL REPORT: The Obama Bubble
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIxR_SrZuZY

Trump called the stock market, under the Obama administration, a "Big Fat Ugly Bubble" while he was a presidential candidate.

Now the stock market is just about where it was, back in 2016 when he was a candidate running for president, when he called it a "bubble".

Trump's hyper-bubble "Great stock market!!11!!!" has popped.

But the "Big Fat Ugly Bubble" of Obama's administration _remains_.

the vastly overvalued stock market could drop as low as 6,000 (or lower) given this environment of debt, debt leveraging, the Hot Air from Federal Reserve money printing and buying out of Corporate Debt, daily-weekly overnight repo bailouts, and buying up the bond market yield curve.

Analyst: Oil Price Could Drop Below Zero
A race between Saudi Arabia and Russia to flood the oil market with inventory could push oil prices below zero, Mizuho Securities said Tuesday.

Brent crude already trades at its lowest level in 17 years as the oil market faces an unprecedented oversupply.

If the overseas price war stifles the US's ability to offload inventory, its storage capacity could reach its limit and force the country to rapidly offload oil, Paul Sankey, managing director at Mizuho, said in a note.

The overseas price war will impede the US's ability to offload its own oil and create a storage problem in a matter of months, Sankey wrote Tuesday. The US exports roughly 4 million barrels of oil per day, but much of that outflow will fade as Saudi Arabia and Russia undercut US pricing.

The market's current condition faces threats last seen after 9/11, when demand faded overnight, and the financial crisis, when the world economy cratered, Sankey added.

The Financial Times put the total global debt at the trivial figure of around $253 trillion which represents a historic high. When the debt crisis broke out in 2008, the debt of the capitalist One World totaled around $170 trillion. Growing debt is actually not a big problem in a growing economy as long as it does not grow faster than the gross domestic product (GDP). The debt mountain of the capitalist world system is growing much faster than the world economic output.

Fed Fires First 1st $1-Trillion Shot Into Mega-Liquidity Crisis
amid the collapsing stock market (3 years growth since Trump's election 100% wiped out in 3 weeks) :
 http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2020/03/438319.shtml

Liquidity — the ability of major WS banks to lend money to each other in order to cover, facilitate all other banking-credit transactions — is going to freeze the credit market.

i.e. your bank accounts, credit card, all your electronic financial assets LOCKED up.

This is why the Fed has been performing "emergency" (<--translation: Regular) overnight repo loans to the WS banks. To keep them liquid, and able to loan cash to cover the whole economy's everyday financial transactions.

Major WS banks, particularly in the past 2 years, have been extremely reluctant to lend to each other which led to the summer 2019 (which have now become regular/weekly) overnight repo injections of the Fed.

Now, with the collapse of the stock market, the liquidity crisis has become far more critical. Hence the Fed announcements this past week of further "emergency" (remember the August-September 2019 "emergencies"?) measures.

Why The Coming Economic Collapse Won't Be Caused By Coronavirus (Part 2)
While the coronavirus may be the catalyzer for the oncoming financial blowout, it is the height of stupidity to believe that it is the cause, as the seeds of the crisis go deeper and originated much earlier than most people are prepared to admit.

The fact of the oncoming collapse itself should not be a surprise, especially when one is reminded of the $1.5 quadrillion of derivatives which has taken over a world economy which generates a mere $80 trillion/year in measurable goods and trade. These nebulous bets on insurance on collateralized debts known as derivatives didn't even exist a few decades ago, and the fact is that no matter what the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank have attempted to do to stop a new rupture of this overextended casino bubble of an economy in recent months, nothing has worked. Zero to negative percent interest rates haven't worked, opening overnight repo loans of $100 billion/night to failing banks hasn't worked- nor has the return of quantitative easing which restarted on October 17 in earnest. No matter what these financial wizards try to do, things just keep getting worse.

Why The Coming Economic Collapse Will NOT Be Caused By Corona Virus
As refreshing as it is to hear candid criticisms of the system's failure and even support for the restoration of Glass-Steagall bank separation from presidential candidates like Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard or even the lame Elizabeth Warren... we find that in each case, those candidates are on record supporting policies cooked up by the very same oligarchs they appear to despise in the form of the Green New Deal. In spite of what many of its progressive proponents would wish, such a global green reform would not only impose Malthusian depopulation upon nation states globally were it accepted, but would establish a the supranational authority of a technocratic managerial elite as enforcers of a "de-carbonization agenda".

Due to the rampant lack of comprehension of how this crisis was created such that such idiotic proposals as "green new deals" are now seriously being suggested as remedies to our current ills, a bit of history is in order.

Coronavirus vs. the Mass Surveillance State: Which Poses the Greater Threat?
If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that'll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

—Philip K. Dick

Emboldened by the citizenry's inattention and willingness to tolerate its abuses, the government has weaponized one national crisis after another in order to expands its powers.

The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration, asset forfeiture schemes, road safety schemes, school safety schemes, eminent domain: all of these programs started out as legitimate responses to pressing concerns and have since become weapons of compliance and control in the police state's hands.

Joe Biden: "You're Full Of S**t" To Detroit Auto Plant Worker Asking About Gun Rights
Joe Biden had a heated exchange with a construction worker who accused him of trying to take Americans' guns away during a campaign stop in Michigan, one of six states holding primaries on Tuesday.

The former vice president was touring an assembly plant under construction for Fiat Chrysler, shaking hands with and praising the electrical workers union members who are building the plant. As Biden was working the room, one man confronted him about his stance on gun ownership.

"You are actively trying to end our Second Amendment right and take away our guns," the worker told Biden.
Biden replied: "You're full of shit."

"This is not OK, alright?" the man said, to which Biden replied, "Don't tell me that, pal, or I'm going to go out and slap you in the face."

"You're working for me, man!" the worker said.

"I'm not working for you," Biden said. "Don't be such a horse's ass."

Inverted Yield Curves Signal Total Failure of Dominant Mainstream Macroeconomics
In recent days there has been a lot of talk about the inverted US yield curve. This means that the yields on short-term bonds are above the longer-term yields.

Typically, in the US context, the difference (spread) between the US 10-year Treasury bond yield and the 2-year yield is used as a signal of the shape of the yield curve (normal, inverted). The 2-year US Treasury bond yield is seen as the proxy for interest rate expectations. Behaviour in recent months is that the 2-year yield has not risen much at all, whereas the 10-year yield has fallen quite a way.

The yield curve is a graphical depiction of the term-structure of risk-free interest rates and plots the maturity of the government bond on the horizontal axis against the respective yields (return) on the vertical axis. The short end of the yield curve reflects the interest rate set by the central bank. The curve's steepness then depends on the yield of the longer-term bonds, which are set by the auction process.

But the short end of the curve is the primary determinant of its slope. In other words, the curve steepens mainly because the central bank is lowering the official cash rate, and it flattens mainly because the central bank is raising the official cash rate.

Bond market yield relationships are viewed as an overall indicator of economic health. The problem is that an inverted yield curve is not signalling a future recession but a total failure of the dominant mainstream macroeconomics.

King County, Washington Nursing Home Harbors 9 of 10 New COVID-19 Infected Cases
First days at the heart of an outbreak: Life Care nursing home becomes national epicenter of coronavirus

March 3, 2020 at 6:00 am Updated March 3, 2020 at 6:02 pm

The four ambulances arrived in quick succession Monday morning, filing into the parking lot of the long-term care facility in Kirkland that has become a focal point in the United States' response to the novel coronavirus illness.

For Life Care Center, COVID-19 has brought seven resident deaths out of nine total in the state - and nation - by Tuesday evening. It has also brought a cluster of illnesses, a wave of questions from family members with relatives inside Life Care and scrutiny over how prepared the care facility and others are for an outbreak.

Health experts warn that nursing homes and other assisted living facilities are especially vulnerable, not only because they largely serve elderly residents, but also because many have been cited for health violations.

Ambulances have arrived each day at Life Care, with emergency workers wheeling away the sick on a stretcher. In some instances, a white sheet is held up to shield the patient from cameras. Of the 27 total COVID-19 cases to emerge statewide as of Tuesday evening, 14 have been linked to Life Care, according to officials. Some 50 people among the facility's 100-plus residents and 180 staff were being monitored for signs of the illness, officials said over the weekend.

Study: 42 Percent Of Americans Are Obese
About 4 in 10 American adults are obese, and nearly 1 in 10 is severely so, government researchers said Thursday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention findings come from a 2017-18 health survey that measures height and weight. More than 5,000 U.S. adults took part.

The survey found that the obesity rate was 42% — higher than the 40% found in a similar 2015-16 study. The severe obesity rate was more than 9% in the new survey, up from the 8% figure in the previous one.

A half-century ago, about 1 in 100 American adults were severely obese. Now it's 10 times more common.

African American Milwaukee Coors Mass Shooter Killed 5 Co-Workers Over Racism Motive
The gunman who killed five co-workers and then took his own life at Milwaukee's MillerCoors complex had worked there for 17 years and had a long running dispute with another employee.

Anthony N. Ferrill, 51, shot dead his colleagues at the headquarters of the brewing company, now known as Molson Coors Beverage Co., on Wednesday afternoon.

Ferrill had worked as an electrician at the company for 17 years, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

A co-worker, who asked not to be named, told the outlet that Ferrill had been involved in a long-running dispute with one of the victims prior to the shooting.

Ferrill believed he was being discriminated against because he was black, the co-worker said.

Economic Collapse : A Crack In The Debt Market Bubble HAS NOW OCCURRED.
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3V83J5wZBYU

 https://steemit.com/gold/@marketreport/must-watch-today-a-crack-in-the-debt-bubble-has-now-occurred-by-gregory-mannarino

The 10yr bond yield drops again, and IMO will continue to collapse along with the rest of the yield curve... Understand, the action we are seeing in the debt market/yield curve WOULD NEVER EVER occur in a BOOMING economy.. not even in a mediocre economy.. This action IS ONLY SEEN in a collapsing economy.

THIS is a big deal.. even short term debt is getting hard to "sell." DO NOT, AND I REPEAT DO NOT IGNORE THIS.. Because weak demand precedes SELLING.. and an EPIC debt market sell off is coming... a debt market sell off will cause a stock market drop on an EPIC scale.. GM
