A new Gold Standard is coming, led by the East, driven through trade. The BRICS nations have decided to fund their development bank with $100 billion. The reserves are aimed at financing joint development ventures, and are set to rival the dominance of the World Bank and the IMF.
"At the final stage of realization -- the initiative to create a BRICS forex reserve pool -- the size of its capital has been agreed at $100 billion," Russian President Vladimir Putin said while opening the G20 Summit in St. Petersburg.
Russia, Brazil and India will contribute $18 billion to the BRICS currency reserve pool, while China $41 billion and South Africa $5 billion, according to a press release issued by the BRICS on Thursday. Earlier this week Russia's Finance Minister Sergei Storchak said that there were still a lot of "difficult details" to sort out.
"These are systematic themes, complicated [and] negotiationsare difficult. We must assume the bank will not start functioning as fast as one could imagine. It will take months, maybe a year,"
The creation of the reserves pool may help the BRICS nations in their drive to reform votes and quotas in the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
The Almighty Dollar Is In Peril As The Global 'De-Dollarization' Trend Accelerates
Prominent international voices are starting to question why the U.S. dollar should be so overwhelmingly dominant. As the Obama administration continues to alienate almost everyone else around the entire planet, an increasing number of prominent international voices are starting to question why the U.S. dollar should be so overwhelmingly dominant in global trade. In previous articles, I have discussed Russia's "de-dollarization strategy" and the fact that Gazprom is now asking their large customers to start paying in currencies other than the dollar. But this is not just a story about Russia any longer. China and South Korea have just signed a major agreement to facilitate trade with one another using their own national currencies, and even prominent French officials use the dollar less and the euro more. John Williams of shadowstats.com recently said that things have never "been more negative" for the U.S. dollar, and he was right on the mark. The power of the almighty dollar has allowed all of us living in the United the U.S. economy. In future years the value of the dollar will go down substantially, all of the imported goods filling our stores will become much more expensive, and it is going to cost the federal government a lot more to borrow money. Unfortunately, with the stock market hitting all-time record highs and with the mainstream media endlessly touting an "economic recovery", most Americans are not paying any attention to these things.
French oil giant Total is one of the largest energy companies in the entire world. On Saturday, Total's CEO made an absolutely stunning statement. According to Reuters, he told reporters that there "is no reason to pay for oil in dollars"...
The BRICs Are Morphing Into An Anti-Dollar Alliance
increasingly more countries are setting the stage for the final currency war, we go again to Russia where VOR's Valentin Mândr??escu explains that slowly but surely the BRICS -- that proud Goldman acronym which was conceived to perpetuate the great American way of life by releasing trillions in US-denominated debt in heretofore untapped markets -- are morphing into an anti-dollar alliance.

New Development Bank will provide money for infrastructure and development projects in BRICS countries, and unlike the IMF or World Bank, each nation has equal say, regardless of GDP size. "BRICS Bank will be one of the major multilateral development finance institutions in this world," Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday at the 6th BRICS summit in Fortaleza, Brazil.
Date: 07/15/2014 -- Michael Rivero is the webmaster of http://whatreallyhappened.com/ and host of the What Really Happened radio shows on the Republic Broadcasting Network. Formerly with NASA, Michael transitioned his image processing skills (along with a brief stint as an actor) into the then-new motion picture computer animation field and has worked on films such as "Star Trek", "The Day After Tomorrow", and has supervised visual effects on "Brainscan," "LOST", and "Hawaii Five-0." Michael has taken a sabbatical from film work to focus all his efforts on peace activism. Michaels foray into blogging began before the word was even invented, and happened almost by accident when he spotted a suspicious photograph being broadcast on ABC news in 1994 related to the death of White House deputy Council Vincent Foster. Since that sudden beginning, Michaels website has expanded to cover diverse topics including the JFK assassination, the accidental shoot-down of TWA 800, election fraud, health issues, Saddams non-existent nuclear weapons, 9-11, the economy, and of course, the lies used to trick the United States into wars of conquest on Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Iran. Michael resides in Hawaii with his wife Claire, who is a composer and creates much of theme music used on the What Really Happened radio show.
On the Tuesday, July 15 broadcast of the Alex Jones Show, Alex breaks down CNBC commentator Rick Santelli's latest rant slamming the Federal Reserve's QE schemes as detrimental to Americans. Jones also looks at evidence suggesting the US government manipulated his Wikipedia entry to smear him as a "Kremlin disinformation agent," and continues examining the border crisis and the heated conflict between Israel and Gaza. On today's show, author, investigative journalist and former NSA technician Wayne Madsen joins Alex to discuss the latest revelations in the Edward Snowden saga and how the NSA plans to achieve total population control, as whistleblower William Binney recently noted. Alex also invites geopolitical analyst and Syrian activist Mimi Al-Laham, AKA Syrian Girl, to talk about the ISIS agenda and how the west is using the terror group in a divide and conquer, order out of chaos fashion. We'll also speak with Infowars reporter SSG Joe Biggs about Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl's new lucrative assignment, and take your calls on this global transmission.
From "The Power of Prophesy", Secrets Volume 211, April 2014.
Texe is reading from a (controversial) article in The Jerusalem Post from March 16, 2014, http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Op-Ed-Co...
"Purim, a Jewish holy day, just passed. It's a bloody tale of intrigue by Queen Esther of Persia and Haman, her opponent. Jewish kids celebrate by eating "Hamantashen" (Haman's flesh) cookies and the Jewish men get drunk in their synagogues. Rabbis name someone in the world as the "Haman of the Year". In 1953, at Purim, Joseph Stalin was murdered in the Kremlin. He had become the enemy of the Jews. Stalin had signed an order two months before his death for the arrest and deportation of all Jews in Russia."
Earlier this week we noted that an invasion of the Ukraine by Vladimir Putin would likely lead to a complete destruction of U.S. stock markets. It's not so much the invasion force itself, but rather, the economic maneuvers that would come with it should Russia take this course of action.
Alex is joined via phone by former Congressman Dr. Ron Paul to discuss the current state of affairs in the US Government, the problems inherent in the Government shutdown and the issues with Obamacare. In this heightened era of government tax and spend — where printing more money is the Fed's only solution — even our allies are sprinting from the dollar. Nations like Russia and Japan could be turning to the gold standard, and the U.S. is none too pleased.
Ron Paul: The Collapse Is Close Nations like Russia and Japan could be turning to the gold standard, and the U.S. is none too pleased. What Comes 'After America'? "After America, there is North America." In recent weeks, both General David Petraeus and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., have woven into public speeches the theme of combining the United States, Canada and Mexico into a single, North American Union.
"After America, there is North America," explained Petraeus, the former U.S. military commander and former head of the CIA, to a panel entitled "After America, What?" held at the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty on June 18, 2014, hosted by the Center for Policy Studies in Great Britain.

In his presentation to the conference, Petraeus proclaimed the coming of the "North American decade," a vision he explained was founded on the idea of putting together the economies of the United States, Canada and Mexico, some 20 years after the creation of North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.
Well known economist and founder of the Shadow Stats web site John Williams seems to agree. If Russia were to begin unloading US Dollars it would almost instantly lead to a collapse of not only our financial markets, but our entire way of life. And while Russia alone may not have the economic power to single-handedly crush the U.S. economy, if their trading partners and allies like China got into the mix, coupled with front-running investors who may suspect the move is about to happen, it could well be a blood bath on a global scale.
This wouldn't even be an issue if the U.S. economy were operating at healthy levels, It almost happened in 2008... but as this excerpt from Casey Research's Meltdown America documentary notes, it appears the US military is preparing for the potential collapse of the US dollar. As Scott Taylor warns, "...if the carrot (of credit worthiness) is fading, and the stick (of military threat) is weak, that empire is going to come down in a hurry..." which leaves a serial economic mis-manager only one option to 'secure' the empire. Alex is joined via phone by former Congressman Dr. Ron Paul to discuss the current state of affairs in the US Government, the problems inherent in the Government shutdown and the issues with Obamacare.
If there's one thing that should be clear, it's that nothing the government or their banking partners have done to solve the economic crisis has been for your benefit. They've enriched themselves, yet again, on the backs of the American people.
Unfortunately, most people just don't give a damn. It's not their children, and it isn't their community. They are too busy being entertained and fattened up as good farm animals.
We need to change mentally. Turn off the television, radio, phone, iPad, and computer. Get outside and socialize with people. Make friends. Help others become aware. We need to make time. Time was giving to us by humans to make other humans busy. Don't worry about the future or the past. Live in the moment, otherwise you're just artificial intelligence. The only thing that exists is the present.
The emerging economies signed a long-anticipated document to create a $100 billion BRICS Development Bank. The institution will counter the influence of Western lending firms as well as the dollar.
The new bank will provide money for infrastructure and development projects in BRICS countries. Each country will send either their finance minister or Central Bank chair to the bank's board.
Leaders from the five nations - Russia's President Vladimir Putin, Brazil's Dilma Rousseff, China's Xi Jinping, India's Narenda Modi, and South Africa's Jacob Zuma, gathered in Brasilia, Brazil. The meeting is the first BRICS summit for India's newly elected PM Modi, and the 6th overall.
The system runs specifically off of debt and it's so obvious when a surplus of tax revenue in the trillions still can't make up for the MASSIVE deficit.
Federal Tax Revenues Set Record Through June; Feds Still Running $385.8B Deficit
Federal tax revenues continue to run at a record pace (in inflation-adjusted dollars) in fiscal 2014, as the federal government's total receipts for the fiscal year closed June
Although the official numbers vary, the unfunded liabilities amount to over $60 trillion according to USA Today.
GAAP-Based Federal Budget Deficit Hit Record $6.6 Trillion in 2012
The deregulation of the financial system during the Clinton and George W. Bush regimes had the predictable result: financial concentration and reckless behavior. A handful of banks grew so large that financial authorities declared them "too big to fail." policy of Quantitative Easing the prices of financial instruments on the banks' balance sheets and in order to finance at low interest rates trillion dollar federal budget deficits associated with the long recession caused by the financial crisis.
The Fed's policy of monetizing one trillion dollars of bonds annually put pressure on the US dollar, the value of which declined in terms of gold. When gold hit $1,900 per ounce in 2011, the Federal Reserve realized that $2,000 per ounce dollar's exchange rate with other currencies, resulting in a run on the dollar as both foreign and domestic holders sold dollars to avoid the fall in value. The manipulation consists of the Fed using bullion banks as its agents to sell naked gold shorts in the New York Comex futures market. Short selling drives down the gold price, triggers stop-loss orders and margin calls, and scares participants out of the gold trusts. The bullion banks The bullion can then be sold in the London physical gold market, short position Comex floor and provide a supply of bullion to meet Asian demands for physical gold as opposed to paper claims on gold.
The evidence of gold price manipulation manipulate the gold price is disappearing as physical gold moves from New York and London to Asia, leaving the West with paper claims to gold that greatly exceed the available supply.
The primary venue of the Fed's manipulation activity is the New York Comex exchange, where the world trades gold futures. Each gold futures contract represents one gold 100 ounce bar. The Comex is referred to as a paper gold exchange because of the use of these futures contracts. Comex, JP Morgan, HSBC and Bank Nova Scotia conduct the majority of the trading volume. Trading of gold (and silver) futures occurs in an auction-style market on the floor of the Comex daily from 8:20 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. New York time. Comex futures trading also occurs on what is known as Globex. Globex is a computerized trading system used for derivatives, currency and futures contracts.
In addition to the Comex, the Fed also engages in manipulating the price of gold on the far bigger--in terms of total dollar value of trading--London gold market. This market is called the LBMA (London Bullion Marketing Association) market. LMBA "bullion banks" (Barclays, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, JPMorganChase, Merrill Lynch/Bank of America, Mitsui, Societe Generale, Bank of Nova Scotia and UBS). Whereas the Comex is a "paper gold"
The Fed's gold manipulation operation involves exerting forceful downward pressure on the price of gold by selling a massive amount of Comex gold futures, gold futures trade. There was no apparent news or market event that would have triggered the sudden massive increase in Comex futures selling which caused the sudden steep drop in the price of gold. At the same time, no other securities market (other than silver) comex vault
It's been one of the worst years for gold in a generation. A flood of outflows from gold ETFs, endless tax increases on gold imports in India, and the mirage of a supposedly improving economy in the US have all contributed to the constant hammering gold has taken in 2013. Marc Faber is quick to stand up to the gold bears. "We have a lot of bearish sentiment, notably China. They will buy this year at a rate of something like 2,600 tons, which is more than the annual production of gold. gold price prediction george soros

Jim Rickards, author of the best-seller Currency Wars, sees the world's central banks embroiled in a "race to debase" their currencies in order to restore -- at any cost -- growth to their weakened economies.
In the midst of the fight, the US Federal Reserve wields oversized power due to the dollar's unique position as the global reserve currency. As a result, actions by the Fed create huge percussive ripples across the battlefield, often influencing events in ways little understood by the players -- and especially by the Fed itself.
In Rickards' words, the policymakers at the Fed "think they are dialing a thermostat up and down, but they're actually playing with a nuclear reactor -- and they could melt the whole thing down".
15.07.2014 NEWS FROM MANY: Rolling coverage Published on Jul 15, 2014 "More Palestinians are killed in the Gaza Strip as Israel continues its assault on the besieged enclave. According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, the death toll from Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip over the past week has now mounted to 192. Another 14-hundred Gazans have been injured.

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus
The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
