Investors, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
The Game is RIGGED!
A Rigged Global Financial System.
If you work for the Criminal Institutions, quit and leave.
If you are a small or retail investor: consider building and nurturing for the 7th generation.
If you are no longer investing but have wealth then nurture the 7th generation.
I See Abundance.
What is WEALTH?
What do you VALUE?
I VALUE LIFE
I see VALUE in buildings that shelter families.
I see VALUE in farms that feed families.
I see paper can only represent these values and are not the values themselves.
There may come a day when most people will see where the VALUE is and loose confidence in the paper.
Today, the global system is based on paper and the threat of the use of force for mandatory compliance.
I see CHANGE coming…
At a time when institutions are criminal and in control of the global economy and financial system, a strategy that goes beyond merely owning physical metals is required.
The modern global financial system is a Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and Commercial Law where all people born in a Nation are registered as an commercial asset.
Regardless if you are aware of this or not is irrelevant, the fact is everyone is a investor in the global financial system either secured or unsecured…
ALL ASSETS in the banks belongs to the bank.
UNDERSTAND that legally your bank deposits do not belong to you!
“From Jim Sinclair via email alert to subscribers:
What does “Get Out of The System (GOTS)” mean to you?
One things is as certain as Death and Taxes, You “GOTS” to go. Inertia and long term mulling over could cost you blockage of up to 83% of your assets.
The first 6 GOTS you must do.
What I strongly wish you do is free your assets from the balance sheets of the entity with which you are dealing in the entire Western world financial system, without exceptions. The official written evidence is overwhelming that in a systemic crisis of size depositors as unsecured creditors of a bank or broker by the simple act of having an account are lenders to that institution. In fact of law, the depositor, you, are very junior lenders as they are unsecured. You need to consider yourself as an informed Cypriot knowing that bail-in was coming a few months before it occurred. What would you do? My feeling is you would have done a lot more than just the thinking about it that you are doing now.”

With continued turbulence in key global markets, including gold and silver, the Godfather of newsletter writers, Richard Russell, writes about many advisors quitting the business because of “rigged markets.” He also discussed the raid on gold, the Fed, stocks, and what investors should be doing in this environment.
Richard Russell: “What to do? I’ve never had such an overwhelming feeling that the cards are stacked against us, the retail or ‘non-professional’ investors. The bond market is held up by the Fed. The stock market is levitated by the Fed’s QE. The gold market is rigged by big banks and an assortment of manipulators. The art and jewelry markets are owned by the world’s billionaires. Farm land is owned by the wealthy. So again, what do we do? Or what should we do?
* My perspective:
When the career professionals and millionaires see rampant institutional criminal policies and activities and they publicly bemoan it then the middle-class and poor should learn from this, to not enter the rigged markets (they all are rigged) or to exit them!
Get your retirement, pensions and savings out.
Amazingly those career professionals and millionaires do not THINK about abandoning the system but rather they think about, timing the rigged system, and about history and using gold and silver as a hedge to preserve wealth and rebuild the old model of wealth with “sound money” or “real money”.
However the freedom movement and truth movement look to Freedom and Truth.
This look calls for something truly different…
Rather than a return to the class society consisting of the rulers and the ruled by implementing some form of policies and orders enforced by police and military to keep the scheme in place.
Indeed, the freedom/truth movement expects these central planners to foment a global war campaign to force the new order and end the discussion.
As tear gas ends public protest and discussion so does wars and murders.
But as more people are aware of these tactics and false flag events the question is “Will the People fall for the same tricks, propaganda and the call to support another “patriotic” war?
Alternative Farmland, Engineering, and Factories will be needed as people on main Street advance away from Wall Street and the deteriorating, destructive and rigged global corporate governance system.
At a time when infrastructure, and health are eroding, investors can contribute to the future generations and insure healthy food, drinking water, and growing communities are vibrant.
Recycle industry, Organic Farms, Hemp production, Transportation industry, alternative Energy, and the list grows for a new path of resiliency, diversity, and abundance increases as you focus on holistic alternatives.

Milkwood Farm is now officially 100% solar powered…
Being off-grid as we are (even though our family farm next door is on the grid, but that’s another story), solar power was the obvious solution from the beginning. And in the beginning, our power needs were very modest, as can be seen in this here video:
Masanobu Fukuoka’s Natural Farming and Permaculture
Masanobu Fukuoka is a farmer/philosopher who lives on the Island of Shikoku, in southern Japan. His farming technique requires no machines, no chemicals and very little weeding. He does not plow the soil or use prepared compost and yet the condition of the soil in his orchards and fields improve each year. His method creates no pollution and does not require fossil fuels. His method requires less labor than any other, yet the yields in his orchard and fields compare favorably with the most productive Japanese farms which use all the technical know-how of modern science. How is this possible?

NFL star Jason Brown has quit playing football professionally, and now spends his days as a farmer, who harvests free food for the hungry.
Jason Brown was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft, and played college football at North Carolina.
On February 28, 2009, Brown signed a five-year deal with the St. Louis Rams that was worth $37.5 million, and included a $20 million guarantee.
At the time, the deal made Brown the highest paid center in the NFL. On March 12, 2012, he was released by the Rams and decided to take a new direction in his life.
After he left football, Brown purchased a 1,030 acre farm near Louisburg, N.C, where he harvests food for the hungry.
Last weekend, Brown gave away 46,000 pounds of sweet potatoes, in addition to the 10,000 pounds of cucumbers that he has already given away.
“You look over a sweet potato field and you don’t see a crop, the vines are kind of wilting. There is nothing there to pick. You’ve got to have faith. I went out to plow up the potatoes last week and looked behind the tractor. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anything quite as beautiful as those big brown potatoes lying everywhere,” Brown told a local journalist.
Despite the potential of permaculture and agroecology, mainstream agriculture continues to focus on conventional techniques. There are a number of reasons why permaculture has not been more widely adopted, or even considered.
First, the small-scale, grassroots nature of permaculture, while part of its strength, has contributed to its slow dissemination and minimal visibility.
Second, permaculture is a design system, which makes it more difficult to teach and adopt than a typical agriculture project. Further, permaculture challenges how governments and NGOs usually teach people to farm.
Indigenous farming knowledge, like that used in permaculture, has been devalued and eroded with the imposition of monocropping and green revolution technologies.
Third, Investor scepticism remains over whether people’s food needs (and profits) can be met using organic, labour intensive, small-scale farming.
Wall Street now in New Jersey? ‘Ghost Exchange’ eyes Garden State role in high-tech trades

Mention “Wall Street” and the first image that comes to mind is probably the one fed by movies and the cable channel CNBC: the floor of the New York Stock Exchange abuzz with blue-jacketed brokers rushing to fill orders as electronic displays tick the latest stock prices overhead.
What doesn’t come to mind is probably this: anonymous warehouses across North Jersey, their insides humming as server farms the size of football fields process billions of securities transactions each day, with nary a soul in sight.
But perhaps it’s time that second image should take hold, as a new documentary called “Ghost Exchange” suggests.
The film, made by a small production company based in Washington, D.C., gives viewers a brisk dive into Wall Street’s vast transformation in recent years to a more computer-driven marketplace, and the contentious debate and unforeseen risks this has brought with it.
For those who are unfamiliar with the story, it is essentially a tale of high-tech computers and new competition challenging the old order of traditional stock exchanges and human-centered markets.
But out of these changes also have come some spectacular failures of high technology — from the 2010 flash crash to last year’s botched initial public offering of Facebook’s stock and, later, the near meltdown of the Knight Capital Group in Jersey City.
And with each passing glitch comes some serious questions as to whether the march of technology — particularly that of high-speed, automated trading — has been fair or even safe for the broader market.
“Ghost Exchange” takes as its central question that of whether the U.S. markets can continue to cope with the torrent of errors that have hit it.
“If something happens, like the Facebook IPO or the flash crash, I just feel that our capital markets are not very resilient to deal with it,” the film’s director, Camilla Sullivan, said in an interview. “If this one is not functioning, nothing much else will.”
As part of its examination, “Ghost Exchange” also shines a light on the Garden State’s role in Wall Street’s evolution.
In recent years, exchanges including the NYSE and its competitor Nasdaq OMX have been warehousing massive server farms in towns such as Mahwah, Carteret and Secaucus, where the vast majority of their trades are now processed.
“I think most people don’t realize New Jersey is the new Wall Street, that almost all the stock trading in the United States every single day happens within the borders of the state,” William O’Brien, chief executive of Jersey City’s Direct Edge, the third-largest exchange operator in the United States, says in the film.
“The places that people are used to thinking about as the home of the stock market are really just glorified TV studios,” he continued.
It’s a bit tongue in cheek, but “Ghost Exchange” uses O’Brien’s remarks to illustrate the momentous change that has shaken up Wall Street but garnered little notice outside the sector. For example, exchanges now lease out space in their data centers to trading firms that want their own servers as close as possible to the exchange’s platforms. Doing so helps them cut down to microseconds the amount of time it takes to have trades executed.
The film strives to take a measured view of these changes. The rise of high-speed, computerized trading along with a decades-old push by regulators to modernize the U.S. stock market ultimately has helped to drive down costs and boost efficiency for all investors, several of the financial insiders interviewed for the film say.
It’s thanks to changes like these that average investors can place stock orders on their smart phones at transaction costs that are a fraction of what they once were, James Angel, a finance professor at George Washington University, says in the film.
“That couldn’t have happened without competition among the exchanges,” he says.
But at what cost? A number of commentators in “Ghost Exchange” sound alarms that the U.S. market has become one in which computer algorithms run amok, high-frequency traders use speed and sophistication to game the system and the regulators assigned to police Wall Street are outgunned at every step.
Ultimately, market meltdowns have the effect of sinking the investor confidence in the markets, the film’s commentators say. The flash crash, for example, caused the Dow Jones industrial average to plunge about 600 points in a matter of minutes, only to recover almost as quickly.
But investors, still rocked by the financial crisis, did not regain their trust in Wall Street so easily, especially after regulators found that the crash was made worse by high-frequency traders essentially pulling out of the market the instant things got dicey.
“Events like this, they’re starting to happen more frequently,” Joseph Saluzzi, co-founder of Themis Trading in Chatham and a frequent critic of high-frequency trading, says at one point in the film. “People are starting to get nervous. They read headlines, they are saying, ‘What’s going on? What are those Wall Street guys doing over there?’ ”
Sullivan, the documentary’s director, said her aim was not to cast judgment on the tools of modern-day trading. Rather, she said she wanted to haul the debate about market structure, which long has raged in Wall Street’s intellectual corridors, out before the broader public.
“Ghost Exchange” has a chance of doing that. Although weighty at times, the film, which was released for download through iTunes, manages to compact a highly technical subject into digestible sound bites and an 86-minute running time.
But while the film offers a diagnosis of the market, its cast of speakers, who include many prominent thinkers on Wall Street, don’t have a clear prescription of how to fix the markets. Hire smarter regulators is a common refrain.
Sullivan acknowledges that the issues in “Ghost Exchange” don’t lend themselves to easy solutions.
“Just like attacking climate change, it’s going to take a lot of small changes,” she said. “But it just needs to be further up on people’s agendas.”
“That was the goal for us: to get it off the nowhere list and on to the to-do list.”
