Bank of England apologises for today’s system crash

Emergency-Preparedness-Checklist-1024x682Another reminder, stay prepared for emergencies as the global financial crisis continues…
On a related note, Mark Carney and all major institutions (central banks, their exchanges, and governments) should be scrutinized for criminal activities and links as prerequisites to implementing a alternative international value exchange system.
Increased awareness to see what is coming from those who plot wars and manipulate systems at centers of power. ~Ron

Late breaking news…. the Bank of England has just issued a statement, apologising for “any problems” caused by today’s technical crash.

It also confirmed that every payment submitted to its Real-Time Gross Settlements (RTGS) system has been processed, thanks to the four-hour extension put in place.

Here’s the full statement from Threadneedle Street:

Bank of England statement – update on RTGS

RTGS closed at 20:00 hrs (BST).

All 142,759 payments submitted to RTGS today before the extended deadline have now been processed. The Bank has put in place extra steps to monitor the system at the start of the day tomorrow when RTGS will open at 06:00 hrs (BST) as usual.

The Bank apologises for any problems caused by the delays to the settlement of payments today and has launched a thorough, independent review of the incident.

And that really is all for tonight. We’ll be back tomorrow to see if the wheels of the financial system spin smoothly tomorrow, and to cover aftermath of this rare, unfortunate, and embarrassing systems crash. GW

Forex-Rigging Fines Could Hit $41 Billion Globally

Originally posted on Starship Earth: The Big Picture:

Banks could have to pay as much as $41 billion globally to settle probes into allegations traders rigged benchmarks in the currency markets,Citigroup Inc. (C) said today.

Deutsche Bank AG (DBK) is seen as probably the “most impacted” with a fine of as much as 5.1 billion euros ($6.5 billion), Citigroup analysts led by Kinner Lakhani calculated, estimating the Frankfurt-based bank’s settlements could reach 10 percent of its tangible book value, or its assets’ worth.

Using similar calculations, Barclays Plc (BARC) could face as much as 3 billion pounds ($4.8 billion) in fines and UBS AG (UBSN) penalties of 4.3 billion Swiss francs ($4.6 billion), they wrote in a note first sent to clients on Oct. 3.

Authorities around the world are scrutinizing allegations that dealers traded ahead of their clients and colluded to rig currency benchmarks. Regulators in the U.K. and U.S. could reach settlements with some…

The entrepreneur had been invited to the human ingenuity-themed event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to speak about his company, Outernet.

The business aims to address the fact that about two-thirds of the world’s population still has no internet access.

First Micro-Simulation Model of a LEDDA Community Currency-Dollar Economy


 Posted on October 14, 2014 Via:

Results are presented for a first-in-class microsimulation model of a local-national currency system.
The agent-based, stock-flow consistent model uses US Census income data as a starting point to project the evolution of local currency (community currency) and dollar flows within a simplified county-level economy over a period of 28 years.
Changes in the distribution of family income are tracked.

The community currency system under investigation is the Token Exchange System (TES), a component of the larger Local Economic Direct Democracy Association (LEDDA) framework under development by the Principled Societies Project. The model captures key design features of a TES, and results suggest parameter ranges under which the simulated TES is capable of achieving stated aims. Median and mean take-home family income more than double during the simulation period, income inequality is nearly eliminated, and the un- employment rate drops to a 1 percent structural level. The need for more sophisticated modeling of a TES, and avenues of future research, are discussed.

Not just largest economy, 26 other ways China has surpassed U.S.

Apparently the plan has completed several objectives and the money masters (central banks if you prefer) are proceeding to the next phase of structural reform for the shift of power from West to East… ~Ron
China remains the biggest foreign holder of US government debt, holding an estimated $1.27 trillion in US Treasury bonds.

 China remains the biggest foreign holder of US government debt, holding an estimated $1.27 trillion in US Treasury bonds.

By Michael Snyder

In terms of purchasing power, China now has the largest economy on the entire planet, but that is not the only area where China has surpassed the United States.

China also accounts for more total global trade than the U.S. does, China consumes more energy than the U.S. does, and China now manufactures more goods than the U.S. does. In other words, the era of American economic dominance is rapidly ending.

Global economic power is making a dramatic shift to the east, and that is going to have huge implications[...]

The following are 26 other ways that China has surpassed America…

#1 When you add up all imports and exports, China now accounts for more total global trade than the United States does.

#2 There is now more total corporate debt in China than there is in the United States.

#3 During 2013, we sold about 121 billion dollars worth of stuff to the Chinese, but they sold about 440 billion dollars worth of stuff to us.  That was the largest trade deficit that one nation has had with another nation in the history of the world.

#4 China is now the leading manufacturer of goods in the entire world.

#5 Back in 1998, the United States had 25 percent of the world’s high-tech export market and China had just 10 percent. Today, China’s high-tech exports are more than twice the size of U.S. high-tech exports.

#6 The United States had been the leading consumer of energy in the world for about 100 years, but during the summer of 2010 China took over the number one spot.

#7 China now has the largest new car market in the entire world.

#8 China has more foreign currency reserves than anyone else on the planet.

#9 China is the number one gold producer in the world.

#10 China is also the number one gold importer in the world.

#11 15 years ago, China was 14th in the world in published scientific research articles.  But now, China is expected to pass the United States and become number one very shortly.

#12 China is also expected to soon become the global leader in patent filings.

#13 China awards more doctoral degrees in engineering each year than the United States does.

#14 China has the world’s fastest train and the world’s most extensive high-speed rail network.

#15 China uses more cement than the rest of the world combined.

#16 Today, China produces nearly twice as much beer as the United States does.

#17 85 percent of all artificial Christmas trees are made in China.

#18 There are more pigs in China than in the next 43 pork producing nations combined.

#19 China is now the number one producer of wind and solar power on the entire globe.

#20 China produces more than twice as much cotton as the United States does.

#21 China produces more than three times as much coal as the United States does.

#22 China now produces 11 times as much steel as the United States does.

#23 China controls over 90 percent of the total global supply of rare earth elements.

#24 An investigation by the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services found more than one million counterfeit Chinese parts in the Department of Defense supply chain.

#25 According to author Clyde Prestowitz, China’s number one export to the U.S. is computer equipment.  According to an article in U.S. News & World Report, the number one U.S. export to China is “scrap and trash.”

#26 Nobel economist Robert W. Fogel of the University of Chicago is projecting that the Chinese economy will be three times larger than the U.S. economy by the year 2040 if current trends continue.

The Chinese are using some of their new wealth to buy up land, properties and businesses here in the United States.  In fact, just the other day we learned that a group from China is buying New York City’s Waldorf Astoria hotel.


The Chinese are kicking the [U.S. butts] and they know it.

One survey found that 75 percent of those living in China believe that their country is on the right track.
On the other hand, Americans are not nearly as optimistic.
According to one average of recent surveys, only 28 percent of Americans believe that the United States is on the right track.

A Liberian Scientist Claims the U.S. is Responsible for the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa

By Timothy Alexander Guzman Global Research, October 17, 2014

Dr. Cyril Broderick, A Liberian scientist and a former professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry says the West, particularly the U.S. is responsible for the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Dr. Broderick claims the following in an exclusive article published in the Daily Observer based in Monrovia, Liberia. He wrote the following:

The US Department of Defense (DoD) is funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March.

Is it possible that the United States Department of Defense (DOD) and other Western countries are directly responsible for infecting Africans with the Ebola virus? Dr. Broderick claims that the U.S. government has a research laboratory located in a town called Kenema in Sierra Leone that studies what he calls “viral fever bioterrorism”, It is also the town where he acknowledges that is the “epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.” Is it a fact? Is Dr. Broderick a conspiracy theorist? He says that “there is urgent need for affirmative action in protecting the less affluent of poorer countries, especially African citizens, whose countries are not as scientifically and industrially endowed as the United States and most Western countries, sources of most viral or bacterial GMOs that are strategically designed as biological weapons.” He also asks an important question when he says “It is most disturbing that the U. S. Government has been operating a viral hemorrhagic fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Sierra Leone. Are there others?”

Well, Mr. Broderick’s claims seem to be true. After all, the U.S. government has been experimenting with deadly diseases on human beings for a long time, history tells us so. One example is Guatemala. Between 1946 and 1948, the United States government under President Harry S. Truman in collaboration with Guatemalan President Juan José Arévalo and his health officials deliberately infected more than 1500 soldiers, prostitutes, prisoners and even mental patients with syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea and chancroid (a bacterial sexual infection) out of more than 5500 Guatemalan people who participated in the experiments. The worst part of it is that none of the test subjects infected with the diseases ever gave informed consent. The Boston Globe published the discovery made by Medical historian and professor at Wellesley College, Susan M. Reverby in 2010 called ‘Wellesley professor unearths a horror: Syphilis experiments in Guatemala.’ It stated how she came across her discovery:

Picking through musty files in a Pennsylvania archive, a Wellesley College professor made a heart-stopping discovery: US government scientists in the 1940s deliberately infected hundreds of Guatemalans with syphilis and gonorrhea in experiments conducted without the subjects’ permission. Medical historian Susan M. Reverby happened upon the documents four or five years ago while researching the infamous Tuskegee syphilis study and later shared her findings with US government officials.

The unethical research was not publicly disclosed until yesterday, when President Obama and two Cabinet secretaries apologized to Guatemala’s government and people and pledged to never repeat the mistakes of the past — an era when it was not uncommon for doctors to experiment on patients without their consent.

After Reverby’s discovery, the Obama administration apparently gave an apology to then-President Alvaro Colom according to the Boston Globe:

Yesterday, Obama called President Álvaro Colom Caballeros of Guatemala to apologize, and Obama’s spokesman told reporters the experiment was “tragic, and the United States by all means apologizes to all those who were impacted by this.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had called Colom Thursday night to break the news to him. In her conversation with the Guatemalan president, Clinton expressed “her personal outrage and deep regret that such reprehensible research could occur,’’ said Arturo Valenzuela, assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs.

Rob Kirby Financial Research & Analysis

Rob Kirby

Rob Kirby [October 16th, 2014] said there isn’t one market left that’s performing its basic price discovery functions without constant interference from the Central Bank Cabal.

Libor Crisis Chronology

• In the spring of 2007, Bear Stearns went bankrupt due to catastrophic losses in their mortgage backed securities portfolio when AAA rated mortgage paper “failed”.
• Up until that time, AAA rated commercial paper had NEVER failed.
• As a result of AAA rated paper “failing” – by Aug. 2007 credit markets seized up because banks refused to extend credit – even to one another.

[ pdf]

The pressures are building and eventually it’s all going to blow apart. Until that day arrives we’re going to see increasing instability and ever more manipulation.

[TBTF institutions] Not subject to accounting

Accounting is for countries that won’t behave right, for the Greece’s of the world, for the Iceland’s of the world, but when it comes to the Too Big To Fail American Banks that do the administration’s bidding, in terms of implementing U.S. imperialism: monetary policy, accounting is nonexistent. They have a public facade of announcing – did they meet or beat the street expectations – but the real meat and potatoes of it is with the derivatives edifices attached to these institutions they simply are not subject to accounting and they get a [members'] pass.

Conspiracy Watch: U.S. Plunge Protection Team

1 Crime Lord_missionaccomplished
The Too Big To Fail Corporations have protection insurance.

‘Plunge Protection Team – PPT’

A colloquial name given to the Working Group on Financial Markets. The Plunge Protection Team was created to make financial and economic recommendations to various sectors of the economy in times of economic turbulence. The team consists of the Secretary of the Treasury, the Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, the Chairman of the SEC and the Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
“Plunge Protection Team” was the nickname given to the Working Group by The Washington Post in 1997. The team was initially perceived by some to have been created solely to shore up the markets or even manipulate them. The team was created in response to the 1987 market crash.

Label anyone with “conspiracy theory” and it instantly became taboo, along with media censor and blackout!
But, now that label has lost its effectiveness as most conspiracies have been revealed as facts.
Facing the truth shines light on institutional crime. ~Ron

Recorded on February 5th 2009
While Timothy Geithner leads the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets ( aka the plunge protection team ), he mentions that this economic crisis is an opportunity to change things; and he states that the big change to come will prevent such crisis from ever happening again.

This sounds just like the 1913 propaganda: the creation of the federal reserve would stop future economic crisis”.
However, it succeeded in more centralized power into fewer hands.
History repeats itself.
Tim “tax cheater” Geithner sounds like a scammer!

Max Keiser talks with Stacy Herbert about the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets aka the (PPT) Plunge Protection Team and the Black Monday of October 19th 1987

Via – …the Plunge Protection Team is nothing but the traders located on the 9th floor of the New York Fed at 33 Liberty street, which transact either unilaterally (because it is within their mandate) when buying (never selling) fixed income securities, or via Citadel when it comes to selling VIX or buying index futures to ramp the market at just the right time and break any bearish momentum. Sadly, with great central planning responsibility comes a great media black out, and no photographers are allowed to see Simon Potter, Kevin Henry, et al in action before their Bloomberg terminals and trading turrets.

From the NY Fed:
In the years following World War I, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York began to realize the power of open market operations when purchasing a large number of government securities in the hope it would prevent a recession, and found that the action had a large-scale effect on the financial system. New York Fed president Benjamin Strong hoped to use these operations to show that the monetary system could support a multiple expansion of deposits and credit.

During the December 19, 1923 meeting of the Federal Reserve Board, President Strong submitted a statement on open market operations that explained how the New York Fed’s open market policy was affecting the economy. “The volume of open-market holdings with which the reserve banks entered the year 1923 put them in possession of an admirable instrument for testing the degree of dependence of the credit structure upon Federal Reserve bank accommodation.” As a consequence of these new actions taken by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the Open Market Investment Committee (OMIC) was formed in early 1923 with the hopes of having the Fed’s two methods of extending credit (rediscount and open market operations) “brought into harmony.”

Today, the New York Fed conducts temporary and permanent open market operations to implement monetary policy. Securities purchased through these operations are managed in a portfolio known as the System Open Market Account and are lent on a daily basis through the securities lending program.

GMO: When Courtrooms Entertain Us


Food Fights!

The focus of this report is to reveal the GMO spillover effect…
Since 2008 the financial crisis has escalated into the world’s food supply and now includes everything on Earth!
This can be seen easily in terms of “Follow The Money” research and investigations. Corporate stocks may be surging from the influx of bankers’ free money, but business transactions are losing profits. The “Great Recession” is systemic and continue to escalate.
The currency wars, trade wars, military wars, bio-war,chemical war, cyber-war, and all wars are very well financed or funded, but never forget the legacy from the war labs of the mega corporations: Monsanto, DuPont, et al.
GMOs may never leave the courtrooms, unless the GMOs are removed from production.
We must ask, are the predators and parasites turning on each other?
If not now, then it is only a matter of time… ~Ron

Seed giant Syngenta faces billion-dollar class actions in three states, claiming China is rejecting U.S. corn shipments because Syngenta released a genetically altered variety before the crop was approved for export to China.

Cargill Inc., the grain exporter that’s the largest closely held company in the U.S., sued seed maker Syngenta AG (SYNN) over claims it illegally marketed its Agrisure Viptera corn seed before gaining Chinese import approval.

Cargill’s grain export facilities in Louisiana loaded the ships that were destined for and rejected by China and its corn has contaminated other shipments, leading to $90 million in damages, according to a complaint filed today in state court in St. John the Baptist Parish, Louisiana.

“Syngenta has not practiced responsible stewardship,” Mark Stonacek, president for Cargill’s supply chain operations for North America, said in a statement. “Syngenta also put the ability of U.S. agriculture to serve global markets at risk.”

China rejected U.S. corn imports since last year over the presence of an unapproved trait in Syngenta’s seeds known as MIR 162, “virtually halting U.S. corn trade with China,” Cargill said. U.S. exporters and farmers have lost as much as $2.9 billion because of the uncertain trade environment, Cargill said in its complaint.

Cargill, based in Minneapolis, was forced to cancel contracts with Chinese companies and to redirect shipments to other markets, including Taiwan, Japan and Egypt, the company said in the complaint. Sep 12, 2014

The case is Cargill Inc. v. Syngenta Seeds Inc., 67061, 40th Judicial District Court for Parish of St. John the Baptist, Louisiana.


Trans Coastal Supply Co, a major exporter of livestock feed products, said in court documents it expects to lose more than $41 million because Syngenta sold Agrisure Viptera corn seed, known as MIR 162, to U.S. farmers without first obtaining import approval from Beijing.

On Friday, international trader Cargill Inc [CARG.UL] charged in a lawsuit that Syngenta exposed the agribusiness company to more than $90 million in losses by selling the trait in corn seed without China’s approval for imports.

China, a major buyer of U.S. grains, has rejected boatloads of U.S. crops containing the variety over the past year.

The majority of Illinois-based Trans Coastal’s losses are related to exports of an ethanol byproduct called distillers dried grains (DDGs), used in livestock feed, according to court documents filed on Friday in federal court in Urbana, Ill.

Early 21st Century: Transitional Period

This is a transitional period we are experiencing.
Metaphorically, we are in a river flowing into the rapids with dangerous turbulence, yet beyond is the healing water within the great lake of calm.

The hidden information is being revealed.
While some information remains obscured, we now know there exist information and knowledge worth having and sharing.
Thus, we now are capable of perceiving institutional deception and psychopathic behaviour as control mechanisms.
