International Hacking Group Steals $300 Million – Global Digital Banking System Not Secure

International Hacking Group Steals $300 Million – Global Digital Banking System Not Secure

- Sophisticated “Ocean’s 11″ style heist is one of the largest in history
- Hackers remotely accessed bank computers to manipulate accounts and A.T.M.s.
- Banking groups make no comment
- Details expose incredible systemic vulnerability

An international group of cyber criminals have stolen at least $300,000,000 from over 100 banking and financial institutions in 30 different countries across the world – in a heist that has been described as “much more ‘Ocean’s 11′” than “Bonnie and Clyde” by the company investigating the theft.

Banks in Switzerland, the US, Japan, the Netherlands and particularly Russia were targeted in the past two years.

An investigation into the attacks – which was conducted by Kaspersky Lab, a Russian cyber-security company – began following an incident in Kiev where an A.T.M. started issuing cash spontaneously in 2013. (more…)

Ukraine Lurches to Full Scale War as Russia Drastically Reduces Gas Supply to EU

Ukraine Lurches to Full Scale War as Russia Drastically Reduces Gas Supply to EU

Vladimir Putin has ordered the Russian state energy giant Gazprom to cut natural gas supplies to and through Ukraine to the EU in a little reported move. It took place late on Wednesday and was overshadowed by the Swiss National Bank market turmoil yesterday.

Russian Prime Minister Putin instructs Gazprom chairman Alexei Miller during a meeting yesterday

Russia has shut off gas supplies through Ukraine to six EU states, ostensibly due to Ukraine’s alleged illegal siphoning gas from the pipeline. The European Union warned that the sudden cut-off to some of its member countries was ‘completely unacceptable’. The move comes just as winter begins to bite across Europe. (more…)

Jim Willie: The End Game is Underway!

The End Game is underway and in progress
People had better prepare themselves for some conclusion events, certain to occur with fireworks.
The USDollar is soon to go away, put to rest, killed off.
Its rise signals its demise.  The hidden dismantle of the Petro-Dollar mechanism has been eerie, mysterious, and full of intrigue.  The crisis is better described as the Global Monetary War.
The Gold Standard will return, but through the trade window.  The solution to the untreated Global Financial Crisis is the gold route.
The Eurasian Trade Zone will be built upon the gold route, and see a revival of the Silk Road.
It cannot be stopped, not even by war.

The safe haven is not the USDollar, but rather Gold & Silver bars & coins, otherwise defined as money. 
Any nation wishing to establish trade or a monetary system centered upon gold is branded a rogue nation, subject to extreme propaganda. This is precisely why Russia is being vilified, since they want no more USDollar in trade or banking, and lead a global movement to discard the USD as global reserve currency.
The solution is with precious metals as the core to banking, trade, and currency, even wealth preservation. 

The agents of change are working at hyper-speed nowThe USDollar is doomed, and its captains are running for their lives.
The return of Gold to its primacy is long overdue.

Is Russia Being Driven Into the Arms of China?

Is Russia Being Driven Into the Arms of China?

The “isolation of Russia” idea is one which has been receiving a lot of traction of late. Russia’s recent economic woes have sometimes been covered with barely contained glee despite the hardships that average Russians may have to endure if the rouble continues to collapse … not to mention the inevitable geo-political backlash.



Reuters image of the over 50% drop in the Rouble against the U.S. dollar

Russia has become isolated from its western neighbours on account of the putsch in Ukraine which led to the predominantly ethnically Russian Crimea seceding from Kiev through a democratic process.

European governments slavishly adhere to U.S. imposed sanctions. So from a western elite point of view, Russia is indeed isolated.

Whether antagonising Russia is damaging to Russia is a moot point. Certainly in Russia’s current straits the bankrupt west is in no position to help. European farmers are suffering from loss of export markets while Europe is still dependent on Russian natural gas.

So how “isolated” is Russia in reality?

New York Times on Benefits of Gold in Currency Wars

New York Times on Benefits of Gold in Currency Wars

The New York Times published an important article this week in which the benefits of gold to nation states during a period of currency wars was highlighted. The article was noteworthy as the New York Times has rarely covered gold in a positive manner.

The article, entitled ‘The Golden Age’ is about the growing use of gold in geopolitical affairs. They drew attention to the gold repatriation movements in Europe and to the accumulation of the precious metals in vast quantities by the central banks of the East – particularly Russia and China.

The Times attempts to get into the mind-set of the central banks who are buying gold or attempting to repatriate their current stocks of the metal. It presents two major rationales for the current trend.

“Some that’ve interpreted the metal’s mini-comeback as an indication that financial Armageddon, in the guise of runaway inflation, is approaching. Others have read the recent move as a symbolic way for central banks and governments to make a show of strength in nervously uncertain economic times.”

The first point is one which we have covered here consistently. The article quotes Jim Rickards who interprets the policies of China and Russia as “they understand who fragile things are and they are getting ready for the demise of the dollar.”

Jim Willie: The Crash Heard Round the World- Saudis to Reject USD for Oil Payments

Putin kicked out the Rothschild bankers from his country.  Putin interrupted the USGovt heroin trade supply routes out of Afghanistan. Like Abraham Lincoln 150 years ago, the elite banker chambers wish to remove Putin and to suppress Russia, but the sprawling nation has joined at the hip with China.  Thus Russia cannot be isolated any more than a bear can be bear hugged.  The nation spans 12 time zones and is a top supplier of numerous important commodities. The Russia & China bond is growing and will result in a marriage, the consummation being a baby called the Gold Trade Standard.
The King Dollar is being displaced, kicked off its throne.  Its squire the Petro-Dollar is undergoing demise.  The Ukraine War is the USDollar Waterloo event.
The Saudi rejection of the USD in exclusive oil payments will be the crash heard around the world.
The marriage between the Saudis and Chinese is a process well along, with each month featuring yet another high level conference. The Saudis will make the announcement in the coming weeks or months, as a genuflection before the Chinese, with a hat tip to the Russians. Soon the crude oil price will be set by the Russia-China tag team, priced in YuanWhen the Gold Trade Standard is entrenched, the diversification away from USTreasurys in the global banking system will become a torrent. Bank system practices will follow trade payment practices. When installed, it will cause prosperity in the East and havoc in the West.
The Crash Heard Round the World is coming.  The USDollar will be rejected, and replaced by the Gold Trade Standard.

Jim Willie Hyperinflation Bombshell: NATO is Dead, King Dollar Wrecked!

The Paradigm Shift has reached a higher gear.  The danger and risk levels have gone to critical levels.  The risk of economic destruction has gone into recognizable critical levels.
The Emperor’s court is showing critical internal defections.  The biggest ray of light comes from Germany, which shows important signs of refusal to permit its economic destruction in order to suit the elite plans of a grander fascist state.  The Germans have suffered hyper inflation before, and will not again.  The Germans have suffered a national calamity from an integrated fascist state, and will not again.  It is becoming excruciatingly clear that the Global Axis of Fascism is the US, UK, and its leash holder in the SouthEast Mediterranean.  The entire global system has reached the critical phase. The breakdown phase is accelerating.
 The Russian sanctions have an obvious whiplash of severe impact to the US and Europe.  The whiplash impact to the US is to expose the USDollar as a corrupted cancerous currency, for which coerced war and economic suicide are the high cost of continued support.
The USGovt is left with no more options than war, since the financial front has been lost to insolvency, market interference, bond fraud, and leveraged corruption.
A climax is fast approaching.  The USDollar is stuck in the implosion stage.  The USDollar will be rejected, the climax a Weimar implosion of the currency. 
The King Dollar has been wrecked, knocked off its throne, never to return to prestige.
