Last week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 1,000 points, its worst weekly performance in approximately four years. On Monday, the index plunged by over 1,000 points early – and closed the day down 588 points. In terms of the number of points lost, Monday August 24th, 2015 was the eighth-worst single-day loss in the index’s history.
A third of S&P 500 companies have declined over 20% from their peaks and many retain high valuations despite disappointing earnings numbers. The United States Dollar Index dropped the most it has in over 5 months today to seven month lows – losing against the Euro and Yen. Oil prices plunged, with the U.S. oil benchmark settling down 5.5% at $38.24 a barrel, its first close below $40 a barrel since February 2009.
Some analysis are blaming the China currency devaluation and the drop in the Shanghai Stock Exchange Composite Index – but what is really going on?
[Potent News editor’s note: Clint Richardson wrote an article called “Stop The Religion of the Fed“. He left a comment at his article which may be related to this discussion since the Fed was mentioned a number of times in the video above:
“Usury is an interesting bird, and I am completely against it on all angles. But there’s a bit more to it than the typical “money out of thin air” concept. As a man (male or female), you are in usefruct of government property. You use the surname, numbers, titles, credentials, and other benefits of being a person/citizen of government. Thus, since you are operating as something artificial that belongs to government, the usury is attached to the person, not you. You are bonded and in surety to that fictional person, and so the usury attached for the usage of the person falls on you. This participation is the cause of usury, and this is proven when a person/citizen files for bankruptcy, and the estate is wiped. Usury is nothing but the penalty for fools who take a debt upon a borrowed name. You can blame the bankers for usury, but it is you(the reader) that begs the bank to allow it to put you into usury. As for the mass amount of usury called seniorage that is attached to the U.S. Dollar, the use of the dollar is the cause. Using something else’s property will always be attached with a fine, generally a usurious one. Want to avoid usury, stop using other people’s things!
I wrote about the gold issue in my articles. It’s just another talking point, with absolutely no proof that any gold is missing. The gold in question is colateralized to the dollar, and has a set price of $42.2222, according to the audit (CAFR). Gold will not save you, because it’s not your gold.
The agency doesn’t need to lie, because the people wont take the time to look at the CAFR. It’s all there.
The interest on Federal Reserve Notes is paid each year back to the treasury. Everything is accounted for in the CAFR.
I think Ed Griffen is just as vested as anyone else in the fraud, and he just plagiarized much of it from men like Eustice Mullins.
Again, the whole point here is to stop demonizing one small part of government and to start understanding that government is the problem, not its hundreds of agencies.

In 1964, President Lyndon Johnson declared an “unconditional war on poverty in America” – not simply to “relieve the symptom of poverty, but to cure it and, above all, to prevent it.” How has that worked out? Today there are over 126 Federal antipoverty programs and in constant dollars, Federal spending has risen from $107 billion to $688 billion – or 640%.
Total government spending has ballooned to $21,000 for every person below the poverty level in America, or $63,339 for a family of three. Since the war on poverty began, $19 trillion dollars have been spent ending poverty, but the poverty rate has increased. What is the Truth About Welfare?

Presenting as part of the session “Beyond Bitcoin, Unleashing the Blockchain”, Andreas M Antonopoulos opens with a contrarian perspective. It’s not about “beyond bitcoin”, and you can’t put this technology on a leash to make it more palatable. Bitcoin is the real thing, the revolutionary and disruptive technology that can’t be tamed.
Bitcoin is punk rock and you can’t turn it into smooth jazz just to satisfy the sensibilities of a timid boardroom.

The Simpsons have yet again “coincidentally” been able to predict a major world event in their cartoon! (Ya right!) … In this video I show how the Illuminati (a secret Luciferian society working as a shadow government in entertainment, banking, military, etc bringing about a NWO for the Antichrist) use popular cartoons to condition minds in preparation for their future agendas! Matt Groening is a Freemason cartoon propagandist working for the NWO! Please share this video! God Bless, STAY VIGILANT & FEAR NO EVIL !!!

The situation with smart meter fires is worse than we thought — and now we know why. This new investigative video tells all.
In studying and doing presentations and making videos on ‘smart’ meters for nearly 5 years now, personally I had my doubts I would learn anything new when I first connected with a utility worker whistleblower through Take Back Your Power.
I was completely wrong and they are right. It is worse than I thought — than we all thought. A major and critical error has been brought forth.
This new video (below) explains in simple terms these new revelations from the insiders, as well as new court documentation and other insights.
The whistleblowers (wishing to remain anonymous) who contacted us have serviced and repaired over 200,000 meters in the field. They have been warning their supervisors about ‘smart’ meter problems for nearly a decade now. They have had enough of the lies and want you to know what they know.
On top of the explosive new details, the meters have at least four major sources of arcing. That’s right — FOUR.
Arcing in ‘smart’ meters causes extreme heat, which causes fires. As we now see, it is beyond any shadow of a doubt that meter manufacturers know, utilities know, and regulators know. They have known the whole time, but they didn’t want to tell you.

Chaos and economic disaster are still stirring up in Greece, with a sharp rejection of foreign control of their troubled affairs.
More austerity and new rounds of loans? Voters in Greece’s emergency referendum were overwhelmingly against it. Whatever happens next, they stood up to the authoritarian tactics of the European Union. Hurrah.
Greeks voted overwhelmingly to reject creditors’ proposal of more austerity measures in return for rescue loans, in the country’s first referendum in 41 years Sunday.
The referendum “will stay in history as a unique moment when a small European nation rose up against debt-bondage,” Varoufakis said. (source)
Now signal the panic. Collapse may be impending. Then doom. Contagion could spread to America, too, and trigger global market implosion and derivatives meltdown.
This weekend brought not only the “no” vote but the resignation of Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, who angrily pointed the finger at predatory creditor banks who he said are using “terrorism” against the angry, defiant people of Greece.
Yanis Varoufakis, Greece’s finance minister, on Saturday accused the country’s creditors of trying to “terrorise” Greeks into accepting austerity.
“What they’re doing with Greece has a name: terrorism,” he told Spanish newspaper El Mundo. “Why have they forced us to close the banks? To frighten people.” (source)
As things stand, the banks are still closed, ATM withdrawals are very limited and strict capital controls have imposed to avoid a full on bank run… but now they are looking to take deposit funds to cover the emergency as well.

As the talks between the Greek government and their creditors slowly falls apart, the citizens of Greece are busy preparing for the worst. They don’t want to be caught off guard like they were during the last economic crash, and they certainly don’t want to end up like the people of Cyprus, and have their hard-earned savings arbitrarily taken from them.
So they’re doing everything they can to insulate themselves from the potential collapse of their financial system, which largely includes taking their money out of the system. Earlier today, sources in the banking industry told Reuters that over one-third of the ATMs in the country, have been completely cleaned out. Between 500 and 600 million Euros were withdrawn from the machines on Saturday, which managed to deplete over 2000 ATMs. Despite the alarming trend, the Greek government has claimed that everything is just hunky dory, and that there will be no capital controls imposed on bank accounts next week.
But the Greeks aren’t buying it, or at least they’re not taking any chances with what little money they’ve managed to accumulate since the last financial crisis. Shortly after Prime Minister Tsipras announced there would be a referendum on austerity, Greek citizens left their homes in droves and started lining up behind ATMs at around 2am. No matter what the government and the banks tell them, the Greeks clearly have no confidence in the system.
