[KR862] Keiser Report: ‘Post-Traumatic Debt Disorder’

We discuss ‘post-traumatic debt disorder’ – which is seen as workers refuse to ask for wage increases, no matter how tight the labor market gets. They discuss the intentional Federal Reserve policy of repeatedly traumatising workers for decades in order to achieve this state of what their ideology sees as ‘perfection’ or ‘utopia.’ In the second half, Max continues his interview with Lee Adler of WallStreetExaminer.com about the latest events with global stock markets, the Fed interventions trying to prevent their collapse, and what next for gold.

    Important REPOST !!! … just in case! ;-)

    !!!

    Lars Schall

    China’s Gold Challenge to the U.S.

    On behalf of Matterhorn asset Management, Lars Schall talked with U.S. Securities lawyer and financial researcher Avery Goodman. On their agenda: China’s gold buying and inclusion into the SDR’s of the IMF; the importance of gold in international relations; and the suspicion that there must be “a physical gold supplier of last resort” intervening in the market.

    SDR is not that important (!)

    @Vonda Bra

    Lars Schall says: “The price (of gold) has not gone up so it must be coming from somewhere.”

    Duh! Because on the Comex the (fake) gold price is settled in paper and cash not in physical gold.

    @ Vonda: I played it several times, it is so damn funny! :-)
    two days ago I ate meat, organic. Next day I had a large pimple on a place I really can’t tell…
    So I am going for the fish next time I feel I need it.
    I did work however 30 hours on a row after the meat meal….
    Awful busy, haven’t got much time to KR and such…
    (I even postponed watching JW episodes several times and splitting the listening sessions) :-)

    Anyway, I don’t come to much else as posting silly things. My reaction to a complete absurd world, being overwhelmed by it all.
    I feel there is nothing much to do else than trying to live my life as the most of the peeps do, however most not being aware of what is going on in the world…. :-)

  11. Flopot says:

    @Frans

    I avoid Instant Spots…I mean Instant Coffee these days. That cleared any spots I used to get. Actually, Instant Turd always triggered BOILS not stupid spots. Destroyed my self-confidence for years.

    I self-diagnosed it was excess calcium, so I cut out Instant Crap and took a tiny amount of cider vinegar each day as it supposedly reduces calcium. Only “real coffee” now.

    @Vonda

    Only one typo and all that text? I hate you ;)

    @Youri

    Aye; forget about the AI singularity — perhaps we’re heading towards a bio event. Mass destruction of the human immune system?

  12. Flopot says:

    @Vonda

    I read your text again, looking for more typos and meaning. I found meaning but no more typos ;)

    I like some of ronron’s one-liners — they can be funny and ambiguous enough to contain several meanings. But I don’t label everything he types as “laconic”.

    Anyway, I’ll take everything you write to mind and heart ;) You’re especially correct when it comes to blasting off POV missiles and then apologizing afterwards; like the textual equivalent of alcoholicism.

  13. Flopot says:

    *alcoholism

  14. Flopot says:

    I really did think I had that word spelling correctly.

  15. Flopot says:

    *spelled?

    Jeebus; now the grammar. Crisis!

  16. Danny Cunnington says:

    @Youri C, The “Zika” virus is yet another big pharma scam and a smokescreen for vaccine damage. Because the MMR jab has been thoroughly outed as causing autism, a new baby destroying formula is needed to totally fuck up humanity. The new vaccine is known as Tdap. It causing brain shrinkage is children and does the damage in the womb.

    The so-called Zika virus is a front to cover for the alarming brain damage. Here’s a report on it from Jim Stone who is monitoring it from Mexico as it appeared in Brazil.

    http://www.jimstone.is/zika.html

  17. Flopot says:

    Or maybe it should’ve been “correct” as opposed to “corrected”. Gaddamn English — that’s how they conquered the world, I tell you!

    ;)

  18. Flopot says:

    @DC

    Yes; the vaccine scam theory. Perhaps another fake war to add to the list. A massive conspiracy to overload our immune systems?

  19. Flopot says:

    The War on Body and Mind…

    — Massive brainf**king — from “Cultural Marxism” to good ol’ propaganda

    — Shredding the human immune system — from the War on Genes via poisoning us with modified life; to the destruction of our health systems, including the overuse of antibiotics in animal feed.

    Btw, the brain is intimately connected with our immune systems — so turning our minds to mush must damage our bodies as-well.

  20. Frans says:

    @ Flopot: instant coffee isn’t a way to live anyway! :-)
    Keep it real! :-)

  21. Frans says:

    @ Flopot: very good one: mind and body.
    Unfortunately we have to keep us busy studying health and acting to it. There is not much real food in the world, and we are poisoned every day.
    I notice people coming at “the end of the track” at an age of 50+ health-wise, and they start to ask me questions, because I felt the same a few years ago and acted on it. (to be honest, they lived a frugal life, alcohol not excluded)
    It is a Gerald Celente says: think for yourself! Don’t trust anything!

    “http://www.sott.net/article/310406-Jordan-turns-from-US-Israel-by-setting-up-anti-ISIS-war-room-with-Russia”

    Why am I not impressed? ;)

    Seems like more kabuki to me.

  23. susan says:

    @Flopot:

    thanks for that link, but like you, I’m not holding my breath.

    I once crossed the Alenby Bridge from Jordan into Palestine(;)), and it was relatively easy. Later it became even more difficult to gain access, worse than arriving at Tel Aviv.

    However quite a few Palestinians I worked with continued their education in Jordan, and didn’t seem too brainwashed.

    But how much real room for manoeuver does any Government have, these days? It would be illuminating (;)) to look up Jordan’s debt, who owns their banks, etc…

    I’ve got a calm day in the kitchen today, making veggie-burger, bread and sitting with the cats by the wood-burner. Just had an exchange with Ry Dawson about vegans, as he says meat-eaters brains are bigger!

    Thanks, Frans, for that funny video! Although she doesn’t look like a veggie herself, unless she really likes eating cakes????

    ;)

  24. susan says:

    Oh, I see it’s not possibly to put an ironic winking face in between brackets.

    You learn something every day!

    Re instant coffee, I don’t trust anything that’s been blasted apart and glued back together again! It tastes like dirt…

  27. Flopot says:

    @susan

    I was always under the impression that Jordan had become a vassal of Israel; so I don’t see why Russia would trust the Hashemites (lol…Windows 7 wants to change that to Whitewashes). Unless it is Russia working with Israel via a proxy.

    Now Russia is protecting the so-called Moderates that Russia said didn’t exist.

    So all sides are lying and the Syrian people are still dying.

    In my current speculative, uninformed opinion, Russia wants to influence the partition plans at the table — so it will be Moscow on the Hudson…sorry I mean on the Jordan.

    …A lawyer representing Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has demanded that several of the campaign’s logos be removed from Wikipedia, saying that reproducing the logos violate copyright law. The Wikimedia Foundation has complied with the DMCA takedown notice and removed the notices.

    It’s fairly surprising that the campaign would seek to ban wide distribution of its logos, which are clearly positive advertising for the campaign. It’s even more surprising that after getting a call from the Wikimedia Foundation, the Sanders campaign didn’t back down or blame an overzealous volunteer attorney—the campaign confirmed it wants Wikipedia to comply with the notice and not publish its logos….

    …A blog post by freight forwarding company Flexport notes it’s likely that Amazon China filed for this freight contracting registration because Chinese sellers are more enthusiastic about finding American buyers than American sellers are about finding Chinese buyers right now. In addition, American companies shipping to China wouldn’t want to share shipping data and wholesale prices with Amazon, since the company is viewed as a fierce competitor. But for Chinese companies, Amazon is less of a threat, and a freight service provided by Amazon might help them minimize costs when shipping abroad.

    Of course, contracting shipments from China to the US would give Amazon an edge over competing suppliers….
