Let me begin by saying that I take no joy in reporting this, even though I predicted this result the moment the referendum was announced, and even after early polling showed majority support for the propositions put forth in the referendum. For those who have not been following this (ultimately futile) attempt at democratic reform in Switzerland, here are the propositions on which the people of Switzerland were voting:
Our nations (Western nations) are rapidly going bankrupt. This is not a suggestion, or an assertion. It is a simple fact of arithmetic, for anyone capable of operating a calculator, and who can understand the concept of “compound interest”. Indeed, the bankruptcy of these already-insolvent regimes has only been delayed via permanently (fraudulently) keeping interest rates frozen at near-zero – to minimize their already gigantic interest payments.
For any/all readers who retain the capacity for independent thought; it is universally acknowledged that the mainstream, Corporate media is little more than a propaganda megaphone. It broadcasts a single message, 24/7, with which the Old World Order brainwashes the masses in our Zombie societies.
The fact that the U.S. dollar is a dying currency is a foregone conclusion. The (negative) fundamentals of the dollar are overwhelming, for two reasons: their magnitude and their irreversibility. These harbingers of the dollar’s doom center on three areas:
As we see the price of gold and silver dragged lower once again in our Hostage Markets; a reality-check is badly needed – since we certainly get no reality from the Corporate media. However, while the mainstream media provides no “reality”, it does provide consistency.
The Corporate media is consistent in one (and only one) respect. It continually engages in self-contradiction. Month after month; these propagandists will assert again and again that “2 + 2 = 5”, and then we will wake up one morning to hear the same pundits assure us that actually “2 + 2 = 3”.
There has been a major (economic) policy-decision reached and implemented, across the corrupt Western bloc. But it has never been the subject of political debate, let alone any sort of formal vote. Indeed, this policy decision has never even been explicitly/publicly acknowledged by any of these Deadbeat Governments.
For the majority of Western populations; real estate is considered to be the ultimate “hard asset”, and thus the most-desirable financial shelter in times of economic peril/uncertainty. Ironically, it is precisely this attribute (and attitude) which makes real estate the ultimate wealth-trap – at the hands of unscrupulous bankers/governments.
In 2013; a chain of events led to what was (at the time) the greatest stampede into gold in human history. It began with the Cyprus Steal, the West’s first “bail-in”. This led to the realization (by the Smart Money) that no paper assets were safe any longer, within any Western financial institution or market.
