Max Keiser Tipped Off to Gold’s Next Major Move

In a recent episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser’s nose for bank fraud demonstrates, not only how the Fed and its 21 primary dealer network steal via insider trading throughout the U.S. central bank’s ‘Quantitative Easing (QE)’ programs, but that record purchases of Agency debt by these 21 banks of the last two months tip him off that another QE announcement is around the corner.

Keiser quotes Pento Portfolio Strategies’ Michael Pento, who told King World News on Mar. 17 that banks have purchased suspiciously high amounts of Treasuries and Agency debt during the first two months of 2012—amounts that are so large, it can only mean that the Fed’s member banks have already been told of the Fed’s next move regarding its ongoing QE activities, according to Keiser.  Sign-up for my 100% FREE Alerts

“Commercial banks have purchased $78.2 billion in Treasury and Agency debt in January and February of 2012,” Pento told KWN.  “That’s already more than the entire amount of purchases made in all of 2011 . . . “

Keiser wisely points out Pento’s observation of the Fed’s market operations and its deleterious effects upon American consumers, especially the poor, who see food and energy prices soar as a result of the Fed’s QE programs.

But the clever means by which the Fed “gifts” these 21 member banks through its camouflaged money printing operation also “telegraphs” the Fed’s next major announcement regarding QE, according to Keiser.

“The word has gone out to the hedge fund community that the next round of Quantitative Easing, they’re going to buy back this agency debt for par, for 100 cents on the dollar.  And so, it’s another gift to the banks and the hedge funds; they’re telegraphing what they’re going to do.  It’s insider trading—again—for the banks.”

Moreover, along with the financial fraud at the Fed, the media has lent a helping hand by heralding an economic recovery in the U.S. as a means for dropping the gold price so that other central banks are able to acquire the yellow metal at lucrative price points.  In its part to dupe investors, the Fed claims deflation, not inflation, should be feared, though food and energy prices have continued to move higher throughout the crisis, which began in 2008.

“So certain people are telling us that deflation is the problem and yet gas, food and import prices are all showing significant inflation,” Pento said in a KWN interview of Feb. 22.  “Oil is now trading over $105.  So right now we have the highest price for gasoline ever at this time of the year.

“Yet Bernanke is telling you there is no inflation and that deflation is a problem.”

As unsuspecting gold investors sell out their holdings in the belief of chronic media-driven deceptive communiques from the Fed, official holdings of the precious metal, on the other hand, continues to rise each year.

Financial Times of London reported:

In a note to clients this week, Credit Suisse referred to “aggressive central bank buying seen last Friday”.

The Bank for International Settlements, which acts on behalf of central banks, has been buying significant quantities of gold on the international market amid falling prices, traders said.

According to several estimates, the BIS bought 4-6 tonnes of gold, worth roughly $250m-$300m at current prices, in the over-the-counter physical market last week, with purchases particularly strong at the end of the week. The total purchases over the past three or four weeks were likely to be as much as double that, the traders added.

Central banks have definitely been looking at gold as an asset class much more closely ever since European central banks stopped selling,” a senior gold banker said. “There has been a huge interest.  Emphasis added.

Keiser told his viewers, the evidence is clear.  Gold is going higher and the central bankers are loading up before the big move higher.

Market volatility in the next two years is expected to run extremely high, a condition in which gold performs very well, according to Keiser, adding that investors should opt out of the fraudulent financial system (operated by “psychopaths”) and profit from the ongoing crisis by owning gold.

“The only way you lose [lower gold prices] is, if things go like it’s like 1955 again and Eisenhower is the president,” Keiser began an information-packed rant for which he has become famous.   “It’s the only way you lose. So unless Eisenhower is coming back to become president of the United States, gold is going higher.  That’s your risk, that Eisenhower is reanimated and stuffed and put in the White House, and it’s ‘I like Ike’ and we went backwards in time.  That’s your only risk in owning gold.”  Sign-up for my 100% FREE Alerts

Max Keiser Takes Hit from UK Censorship of Iran

It was Black Friday last week for UK fans of Max Keiser’s On the Edge.  Iranian-based Press TV, the channel which carries On the Edge, lost its license to air programming in the United Kingdom.  Sign-up for my 100% FREE Stock Alerts

The ‘official’ reasons cited by UK government’s Central Office of Information (OIC) include improper jurisdiction in which Press TV holds a license to air in the UK in addition to Press TV’s unpaid ‘ticket’ for an ‘infraction’ OIC claims Press TV made for the broadcaster’s interview with an imprisoned journalist in 2009.

Of course, the timing of the OIC decree against Press TV, as well as the hit piece  which ran soon afterward by UK’s The Register, not only wreaks of a clumsy attempt to spin a highly questionable ban of free speech, it’s an obvious ploy by The Register to spew good ol’ fashion jingoism against the Iranian government.

“Iranian government-backed broadcaster Press TV has finally got its fondest wish and lost its UK broadcast licence,” stated The Register, “but its martyrdom is self-inflicted rather than the result of any government conspiracy.”

Taking into consideration that the OIC is the sixth-largest advertiser in the UK, down from last year’s no.1 slot, The Register has no credibility to close its shameful article with, “So after tonight we’ll have to stick with China Central TV, Russia Today and Fox News for our ideologically-motivated news coverage.” [Emphasis added]

On the other hand, not all is loss in UK media.  In 2007, the UK-based The Guardian London bureau journalist Yvonne Ridley thought Press TV was a splendid idea as a means of keeping some of the radical right wing programming of Fox TV in check.

“I see it as an antidote to Fox TV that will give a different perspective to the coverage that you get from the mainstream media. It’s not shock TV, tabloid TV or propaganda promoting reactionaryism.”

Friday’s article from The Guardian about the ruling of the OIC is much more professional and balanced, and includes a quote from the outspoken George Galloway.

From Friday’s The Guardian:

George Galloway, the former MP for Bethnal Green and Bow, is Press TV’s best-known UK presenter. Galloway has previously been sanctioned by Ofcom for anti-Israeli bias in one of his Press TV shows.

Galloway, who infamously performed as a cat on Celebrity Big Brother, tweeted: “Champions of liberty the British govt have now taken Press TV off Sky. “Follow us at www.presstv.ir and other platforms.”

Could Press TV have helped prevent more than a million Iraq killings in addition to the thousands of western forces lost if the truth behind the Iraq invasion was made clear to the public in 2003?  How many are unaware of a Zionist plot to expend American and British soldiers via the creation of bogeyman of ‘gooks’, ‘towelheads’ and ‘commies’?

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the goal of Press TV was to counter “propaganda” by western governments, according to a 2007 The Guardian article. “Knowing the truth is the right of all human beings but the media today is the number one means used by the authorities to keep control,’ the Iranian president said. ‘We scarcely know a media that does its duty correctly. Our media should be a standard bearer of peace and stability.”

While a cleverly disguised feudalism-based United Kingdom spats with theocracy-based Iran, Max Keiser’s superlative programming becomes collateral damage in the fray.  Or, maybe, Keiser was a target of the hit as well—a two-for bonus.

In 2007, Keiser reported that CIA agent Robert Seldon Lady led a team of U.S. operatives who illegally abducted an Egyptian citizen who had been granted asylum on Italian soil, then transported him back to Egypt in a procedure the U.S. called in its usual 1984-style vernacular, extraordinary rendition.

Italian courts later found Lady guilty in absentia for the kidnapping of the Egyptian and ordered the U.S. government to return Lady to serve nine years in an Italian prison.  The U.S. government has refused to extradite Lady.

Moreover, Keiser’s well-delivered, easy-to-understand and entertaining play-by-play accounts of banker fraud and the fascist overthrow in progress of the U.S., UK and European governments don’t play well with a criminal cabal who seek to escape justice when the time for adjudication of the Bush and Obama Administration crimes finally arrives.  In fact, Keiser’s work of exposing the heinous financial crimes of the cabal since he began his show On the Edge in 2009 is no less inspiring to viewers than the yeoman’s work of Alex Jones of InfoWars.com, among others.

Though Keiser’s programming is riddled with amusing commentary, the work he does is very serious.

According to the co-author of Reagonomics and former Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury Paul Craig Roberts under President Ronald Reagan, the incremental fascist overthrow of the U.S. (UK and Europe) will end in some form of confrontation, either political or otherwise.

“There is probably more democracy in China than there is in the west. Revolution is the only answer … We are confronted with a curious situation,” Roberts was quoted.  “Throughout the west we think we have democracy, we hold ourselves up high, we demonize China, we talk about the mafia state of Russia, we talk about the Arabs and so on, but where is the democracy here?

“The militarism of the U.S. and Israeli states, and Wall Street and corporate greed, will now run their course. As the pen is censored and its might extinguished, I am signing off.”

The 72-year-old Roberts is now retired, leaving Ron Paul as the only bastion of freedom on the official political front in the U.S.  In the UK, the Leader of the UK Independent Party Nigel Farage serves as the ‘tip of the spear’, politically.

As broadcasters, Keiser and Jones have also picked up the baton in the continuous fight for liberty, doing their part as high-profile icons of the freedom movement, worldwide.  Keiser’s specialty centers on the financial intricacies of the crimes committed, a job he performs quite well.

Max Keiser has taken a hit by the ‘establishment’ in this latest assault on freedom of speech perpetrated by the UK government.  However, UK viewers can still watch Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert at the following Internet addresses:

Gold Price: “We’re Going to Kill the Dollar,” Senior Obama Official

Thinking the gold market has seen its best days?  Not a chance, if the Fed and the Washington pathocrats get their way.

Speaking at AmeriCatalyst 2011, in November, hedge fund manager extraordinaire Kyle Bass of Hayman Capital Management LP told attendees he was given one of the strategies for reviving a dying U.S. economy.  It involves devaluing the U.S. dollar to affect renewed export demand.  Sign-up for my 100% FREE Alerts

No surprise there, really, as the playbook for mature economies, strapped with bizarre levels of public and private debt, deficits and stagnant employment, always opt for trashing the currency to make good on debt promises.

“The governments idea right now is we are going to export our way out of this,” Bass said with a grin.  “And when I asked a senior Obama administration official last week how are we going to grow exports if we won’t allow nominal wage deflation, he said we are just going to kill the dollar.”

Gold should soar in the coming years as the cat can no long be contained in the bag, even too obvious to the most financially illiterate among us.  How the Fed will explain a continuation of rising food and energy costs should prove interesting.

Why should Bass be told about such a sensitive issue?  Most likely the “senior Obama official” wasn’t especially concerned with Kyle Bass and his obscure name recognition level with the public, nor was this “official” prepared to lose credibility with a pretty sharp hedge fund manager with tired government propaganda.

So, how rapidly could the dollar decline to achieve this export miracle.

If the signing of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), suspending a good chunk of the Bill of Rights, by a sitting U.S. president doesn’t provide a strong enough clue to the extent of mayhem expected (feared?) in the coming months in the U.S., it would take similarly blind faith to expect that a baby crawling across a busy highway during rush hour will reach the other side unscathed.

The Godless and humorless woman, Ayn Rand, once said “We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality.”  Or, taken from another philosophical prospective, the shaman priest could recommend to his ‘flock’ to use the brain that God had given them to figure out what’s most likely in store for the U.S.

And for those who feel too old to bother with such nonsense of currency devaluations and the extra chore involved in learning more about precious metals while living the romanticized ‘golden’ years, the pathocracy that has crept into America’s forefathers’ Republic has already counted the vast majority of you out—sizing up the more-than-65-years-old group as the Greenback cannon fodder for the State of alleged free people dependent upon pensions and savings, too old, too civilized and too shocked to take on low-IQ goon squads in defense of their life savings.

In his book, Political Ponerology: A Science on the Nature of Evil Adjusted for Political Purposes, Andrew Lobaczewski, wrote:

During stable times, which are ostensibly happy, albeit dependent upon injustice to other individuals and nations, doctrinaire people believe they have found a simple solution to fix the world. Such a historical period is always characterized by an impoverished psychological world view, so that a schizoidally impoverished psychological world view does not stand out as odd during such times and is accepted as legal tender.

The kickoff of the bogus 9-11 event; Patriot Act; Iraq War; Afghanistan invasion; TSA; FEMA camps, tyrannical handling of the OWS movement; obvious Ron Paul blackout; and the suspension of the Constitution with a flick of pen—were all achieved within one decade!  Compare that with a generation, which protested against the war in Vietnam and expressed outrage during the 1968 Democrat Convention, ending with the resignation of a U.S. president and a tumbling U.S. dollar for the remainder of the decade of the 1970s.

This time, the finale could include a real war with Iran (proxy of Russia and China) as a means of raising Obama’s approval rating in time for the 2012 election.  As bizarre and suicidal as an all-out war with Iran may seem, consider the alternative, a collapsed dollar in a country that sports more firearms than it calls citizens, with no enemy outside of the pathocracy to blame for the economic collapse.  The trials and imprisonments would begin very shortly.

A strong presidency during wartime could be the rouse to take the bite out of a dollar free-fall, keeping the illusion of ‘normalcy’ of perpetual war intact for a while longer.

Lobaczewski explains:

If the laws of normal man were to be reinstated, they and theirs could be subjected to judgment, including a moralizing interpretation of their psychological deviations; they would be threatened by a loss of freedom and life, not merely a loss of position and privilege.

Comment: Wouldn’t a Ron Paul win threaten the pathocracy?  Auditing the Fed and the NY Fed’s Exchange Stability Fund (ESF) would blow the 75-year fraud of the dollar wide open.  There would be no recovery from that.

Since they [pathocrats] are incapable of this kind of sacrifice, the survival of a system which is the best for them becomes a moral imperative. Such a threat must be battled by means of any and all psychological and political cunning implemented with a lack of scruples with regard to those other ‘inferior-quality’ people that can be shocking in its depravity.

Comment: After killing one million-plus Iraqis, Bush makes jokes at a roast about not finding weapons of mass destruction.  Cheney openly states torture is okay, knowing the practice is against the Geneva Convention and is a war crime.  The course for a totalitarian regime had already been planned.

This should be kept firmly in mind by those who think that getting rid of George W. Bush and the Neocons will change anything. [Editor's note.]

Comment: Isn’t that what Alex Jones of Infowars.com and former Assistant Secretary to the Treasury and father of Reagonomics Paul Craig Roberts have said for some years now?  Some have characterized the U.S. as an inverted totalitarian state.  Democrats and Republicans work for the pathocrats. 

In general, this new class is in the position to purge its leaders should their behavior jeopardize the existence of such a system. This could occur particularly if the leadership wished to go too far in compromising with the society of normal people, since their qualifications make them essential for production. The latter is more a direct threat to the lower echelons of the pathocratic elite than to the leaders 

Comment: Doesn’t that explain the actions of Greenspan, Rubin, Obama, Bush, Cheney, Blankfein, Jamie Dimon, Bernanke, Geithner, Paulson and a list of Washington and Wall Street minions too long to list here?  Isn’t that what Ron Paul has been talking about for several decades now?  And if Ron Paul doesn’t float your boat, hasn’t the emerging leader of Generation X age group, Max Keiser of the Keiser Report, already exposed enough of these criminals?  Who would have thought the CEO of a stodgy bank like JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon would be as well-known as Max Keiser.

Pathocracy survives thanks to the feeling of being threatened by the society of normal people, as well as by other countries wherein various forms of the system of normal man persist. For the rulers, staying on the top is therefore the classic problem of ‘to be or not to be.’

Comment: That last line, in other words, means, roll the dice and go for broke.  The victors are never tried for their crimes.   Therefore, go to war with Iran (U.S. citizens are accustomed to wars), bring Russia and China into it, watch oil soar to at least $200 per barrel during the closing of the Strait of Hormuz, resulting in a further and accelerated collapse of the U.S. economy and dollar, which is on the brink of caving in, anyway.

After the shock and awe—and boos, the dialogue, then, becomes quite predictable, especially with a U.S. media already complicit with the wishes of a corporatist State turned pathocratic and anti-Arab-Persian-Muslim (helping a foreign nation that really has a motive for stirring up war with its neighbors in the region, Israel).  The world will blame Iran (no.2 of the axis of evil) for $200 oil and a collapsing dollar.  Anyone not on the same page is branded a domestic terrorist.

It’s 9-11, part II.   But instead of a falling buildings and stock market, it’s going to be far worse, and global, including a dollar fiasco, bank holidays, TSA everywhere, severe social unrest, and a raft of further, now ‘codified’, un-Constitutional responses to the crisis, according to Gerald Celente.

Therefore, the U.S. loses all remaining credibility of every paying back its debt, instead, acting more like a CIA-installed Pinochet regime on steroids.  Internal false flag attacks from ‘extremest’, played by FBI stooges, will have U.S. citizens debating whether the other stooges at the TSA should be deployed for protection anywhere two or more individuals gather.

MF Global Case Exposes JP Morgan COMEX Fraud

With 19 days left in the year 2011, one would think that the famous Ann Barnhardt interview, posted Dec. 1, on the FinancialSense Newshour website was a shoo-in for the most important interview about your money this year.  Sign-up for my 100% FREE Alerts

But, it appears that Jim Willie of The Hat Trick Letter takes Barnhardt’s gruesome assessment of the financial industry several steps forward in classic Jim Willie style.  Marc Faber, Jim Rogers and, even Gerald Celente, Peter Schiff and Max Keiser, don’t do quite the justice to the topic of: the tag team effort by the bankers, regulators and politicians who conspire to fleece the American people, like Jim Willie can do.

For those already familiar with Jim Willie, go right to a most fascinating interview with the man, who, prior to the Lehman collapse, was unfairly referred to as ‘Crazy Jim’ for his ‘ridiculous’ prediction for systemic financial collapse at a time when the compelling evidence for such an event could only be appreciated by those few among us steeped in all the academic disciplines of money, history and of human behavior, rolled up into one.

Jim Willie interview, click here.

For those unfamiliar ears to the Willie experience, his presentations sound no less crazy than they’ve sounded of the past.  His presentation of the facts, the events of past and present, as well as the conclusions he draws, appear ‘nutty’ to the layperson.

But no one can ever say that the man has ever been wrong about what he has for many years envisioned—and expressed in no uncertain terms, proving once again the adage: It’s not, what a man says; it’s the posture in which the man says it, that appeals to the man-on-the street.  See Milgrim Experiment.

Though Willie earned a Ph.D. in inferential statistics, he won’t wear a suit and tie or a lab coat.  You’ll have to take in the data and draw your own conclusions, because he sounds exasperated from those around him who won’t listen—even his own family members.

Jim Willie, PhD., now, presumably, lives a peaceful life in Costa Rica, where he publishes his famous Hat Trick Letter.

Max Keiser: The Endgame is a Mass Panic Buying of Gold and Silver

Speaking with Russia Today on Monday, Max Keiser predicted gold and silver will be the wildly popular choice among the public leading up to and finishing with a catastrophic endgame of the global debt and fiat currencies crisis.

“The endgame [to the crisis], is a mass panic buying of gold and silver,” Keiser predicted, noting that bankers creating more debt on top of unserviceable debt will eventually lead to another meltdown, a conclusion also drawn by famed commodities trader Jim Rogers of Rogers Holdings last week in his interviews on Fox Business and CNBC. (article here)

“This will force the banks to go the way of Enron,” he said, as the public’s distrust of the banking system reaches a global zenith.  “JP Morgan will one day wake up and go the way of Enron; it will be worth zero.  Same thing for BNP, same thing for many of these banks.” Sign-up for my 100% FREE Alerts!

The 51-year-old, former equities broker, now hosts the widely-watched financial news program On the Edge, whereby Keiser steps the viewer through the various events of the financial crisis as they happen, providing colorful, insightful and understandable commentary as well as expert analysis along the way.

Keiser said Monday that the only way to stop “criminal bankers” from “stealing” from the public is to opt out of the system by turning in paper money for precious metals—specifically gold and silver, the money successfully used for thousands of years as a store of value and wealth during countless financial crises.  Kaiser especially likes silver.

“The gold and silver vigilantes, who are decapitalizing . . . remember when you’re fighting vampires, you need a silver stake and put it through their heart,” continued Keiser.  “This is what gold and silver acts like when you’re fighting terrorist banking zombies on Wall Street.”

Keiser said one of the immutable laws of economics [Gresham's Law] will eventually win over the bankers’ fight to maintain the status quo of its self-created “Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme” of fiat money—to borrow a phrase he regularly uses on his show.  As it fails, real money, he said, will not.

“That’s why gold and silver continue to go higher,” he explained.  “And when it gets to a certain tipping point, these bank balance sheets will blow up and we’ll have a new gold standard around the word, and this will be a rebirth of the global economy.”

Since the debt crisis began, the number of personalities and analysts has grown substantially, as millions of financial laypeople, who strain to understand the collapse of banks and sovereign nations, as well as why it has happened, grows rapidly.

Keiser is unlike any other, in that, he, aided by his assistant and research reporter, Stacy Herbert, delve into the bowels of the financial system and offer up simple and coherent explanations to viewers for the motives of bankers and politicians throughout the crisis.  His message of corruption, greed, power, and the evolution of a corporate fascist political system taking hold of the US and Europe resonates with more and more viewers each month.

According to Google Trends, the search term, Max Keiser, has grown in trend since the crisis began, in earnest, during the fall of 2008.

Thanks to Max Keiser and many other public personalities, who are capable of deciphering the financial jargon and the political response during the crisis to a weary public, the subject of gold and silver as their role as money is now mainstream after 30 years of dormancy.  The arcane subject of money has many new students, especially among the populations of those countries touched first by the harsh and sometimes shocking realities of a faltering global banking system.

The chart, below, courtesy of Google Trends, shows Max Keiser’s popularity as a search term in Google’s search engine.  Is it surprising that the two nations which have taken the biggest hit, so far, Greece and Ireland (the tiny populated country of Iceland has said, “no” to banker bailouts and have moved on), during the protracted crisis show as ranking no. 1 and no. 2, respectively, on Google’s country demographics statistic?

Interestingly, Italy is no where to be found—yet.  But as the crisis moves from country to country, there is little doubt that more and more affected by the spreading crisis will become familiar with Max Keiser and his partner Stacy Herbet.
