Bernie Madoff Dead And Gone

Bernie Madoff, who orchestrated the largest Ponzi scheme in history, died in a federal prison Wednesday. The 82-year-old inmate was reported dead at the Federal Medical Center in Butner, North Carolina, apparently from natural causes.

Madoff pleaded guilty to a Ponzi scheme whereby he swindled thousands of clients out of billions of dollars in investments. He was a former chairman of the Nasdaq stock market and counted among his clients such powerhouses as Steven Spielberg and Sandy Koufax.

Here is a video report on the financial swindler from The History Channel. The piece is entitled, “Ripped Off: Madoff and The Scamming of America.”

 

 

 

 

What Does The Future Hold?

Equality is the sum of societal destruction. So argues Black Pigeon Speaks in this look at rising inequalities as the alleged democratic government of the United States teeters on the brink of collapse. Will we descend into full-scale communism? What does the future hold?

Economy Will Implode!

The economy is tracking toward a monumental collapse for the ages! With millions of Americans still out of work, the Biden Administration continues to print trillions of dollars, including a $2 trillion infrastructure plan that is doomed to fail.

World Alternative Media’s Josh Sigurdson says it goes without saying that the government is handing over a boatload of money to different contractors on the state and municipal level throughout the country to patch up and build roads at higher prices than it would have cost on the free market. At the same time, the government is allocating the lion’s share of employment to the state, a plan that has failed miserably in so many countries. “Most of the money goes to subsidies and expenditures and comes with the largest tax increase in United States history,” he says.

Sigurdson warns this is a massive red flag for what is an increasingly bloated stock market, as the government continues to print money into oblivion to pump up bonds, which in turn, carry Wall Street. All the while, the risk of inflation grows daily and the solutions become fewer. Here’s more with Sigurdson, who offers some answers of his own.

Why Money Is So Ugly

Have you ever noticed how so much currency is downright ugly? Here, Black Pigeon Speaks says there’s a reason why.

DTCC Major Wall St. Culprit

The Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC) is the real culpit in the illegal manipulation of Wall Street. A self-governing organization, the DTCC is able to thumb its nose at the SEC, and is basically responsible for covering up all the stock transactions that fail to settle. For example, if Wall Street sells stock to a pension fund or individual investor and the stock isn’t delivered, the DTCC covers it up like it never happened.

Says Robert David Steele, “What it boils down to, is the DTCC is at the heart of gutting the American economy, of gutting American pension funds, of killing companies with life-saving technologies, just because you can profit from their death.” He adds the sinister DTCC also was prominent in undermining President Trump’s effort to reboot the economy in the wake of the disastrous COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s more from Stephen E. Arnold and Steele, who says he’s part of a team who has documented that more than $100 million has been stolen from Main Street, America.

Capitalism Saved China

How did one of the world’s poorest countries—China—become one of the world’s richest in just 30 years? The answer is capitalism. The bizarre about-face is difficult to fathom in this day and age, but here’s how it happened.

In 1949, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) defeated the Nationalist Party in a brutal civil war. The leader of the CCP, Mao Zedong, promised the Chinese people that he would create a new China. To transform China into this heaven-on-earth, Mao launched radical socialist reforms: industries were nationalized, private businesses were eliminated and land was confiscated. But rather than turning China into a heaven on earth, these policies turned China into a hell-on-earth.

Mao’s successor, Deng Xiaoping, didn’t have any answers, but in 1978, a small group of 18 of farmers from the village of Xiaogang did. They made a secret deal with their village leader.  After fulfilling the government quotas, they would be allowed to keep any surplus for themselves and sell what they didn’t need.

The result was magical. The “Xiaogang model” began to spread to other villages. When Deng heard of it, rather than punishing the farmers, he had the good sense to recognize that these simple peasants had shown him how to revive China’s economy. The freer the Chinese economy became, the wealthier the Chinese people became. In the space of three decades, 800 million Chinese people emerged out of poverty.

Inflation Red Alert

Andrew Lee, the President and CEO of Phoenix Gold, joins the SGTReport to discuss the destruction of our currency, skyrocketing commodities and consumer prices, and his company’s mining projects in Nevada and Canada. Always do your own due diligence before making any investment decision. The bottom line here is that what the Fed is doing to our currency cannot be undone, prepare for massive inflation and the destruction of your fiat purchasing power.

Is Free College A Good Idea?

With the Democrat Party barreling out of control on a careless spending spree, it appears that free college for all is next on the docket.

Thanks to big government, the cost of a college education has skyrocketed at an alarming rate, rising a shocking 1,000 percent since the 1970s. PragerU’s Will Witt takes the issue to the University of Texas at Austin campus, where he receives some interesting thoughts on whether a college education should be a freebie and who will pay for it.

Inflation On The Rise

How can you tell the Democrats are in charge? Because inflation is rearing its head again, driving up prices to new astronomical levels.

Of course, Joe Biden and his cronies will try to cheat to hide how their policies stir up unwanted inflation. But all you need to do is examine the rising prices of food, gasoline and other staples since the November election. Look for riots to ensue this summer, particularly in poverty-stricken nations around the globe. More from Bill Still.

More than a decade ago far-left liberal author Naomi Klein wrote a book titled THE SHOCK DOCTRINE: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. As you might guess, Naomi Klein also happens to loathe President Trump. So it’s ironic to see what she described in that book happening NOW under the illegitimate ‘President’ she prefers, Joe Biden. America is being gutted by the criminal establishment and the criminal international vampire squid banks they own. More from the SGTReport.

They’ve Only Just Begun

You think Joe Biden is done destroying America? The truth is: he’s only just begun. What’s coming may well leave you broke and in perpetual slavery if you’re not prepared. More from the SGTReport.

More arrests! Suicides! The [Deep State] hatred of God’s creation is exposed. The choice to know will be yours. Among the topics covered: women’s sports, Marorie Taylor Greene, and the Equality Act. More from And We Know.

Collin Kettle is the Founder & Executive Chairman of New Found Gold. He comes from a family with deep ties to mining, including co-founding AuEx Ventures, the company responsible for discovering the Long Canyon deposit, a project ultimately acquired by Newmont for $2.3B.

Collin begins this conversation, describing how the economy is doing under [Joe Biden]. He warns the economy will most likely head into a recession or Depression. Gold and cryptos will start to rise and break out as the stimulus is pushed out into the public realm. The countdown to the implosion of fiat currency has started.
