Deflation is the Calm Before the Inflationary Storm – Got Gold?

Gold Bullion

We are currently about one year into a two year grace period before people will begin to realize that their money isn’t ‘real’ but simply ‘magic’ money. In the meantime the ‘smart’ money is buying up hard assets like gold, knowing that it is the only form of money that isn’t simultaneously someone else’s liability and, unlike ‘magic’ money, can’t be created out of thin air.

Words: 778

Lorimer Wilson, editor of, provides below further reformatted and edited [..] excerpts from Tim McMahon’s ( original article* for the sake of clarity and brevity to ensure a fast and easy read. McMahon goes on to say:

Banks Prefer Inflation

You would think a banker wouldn’t like inflation because he loans out money and gets back payments that are worth less and less. In fact, though, the price we pay for a loan takes that into account i.e. the banker builds a cushion into the interest rates to cover the expected inflation. As such, what bothers a banker is rapidly increasing inflation that he hasn’t built into his profit margin.

A little inflation is good for a banker’s business, however. It creates ‘easy’ money and a mindset among the people that they are getting something for nothing from the bankers by paying with less valuable dollars so they are more likely to take out loans and spend the money before it depreciates and buys less.

That being the case you would think banks would like deflation because they loan out money and get paid back with increasingly valuable dollars but, once again, the bankers disagree. When money is scarce and getting more valuable several factors conspire against banks:

1. people are less likely to borrow when they can defer purchases and things will be cheaper in a month or two (or twelve).

2. people defer purchases because they fear the economy is getting worse and they may not have a job next month or their hours have been cut.

3. the banks themselves fear the same exact forces so they increase their lending requirements and basically will only loan money to people who don’t need it (or want it).

Deflation is Bad for Banks

This brings us to why the news media fears deflation so much. It isn’t because they fear falling prices, or that it will hurt the common man, it is because it is bad for banks, i.e. they can’t loan money. So the media has to stir up fear of deflation in the minds of people so the government can crank up the printing presses and bail out the banks.

Once the printing presses and the bailouts get going, massive sums of money can be transferred to the bankers so they can get their $11 Billion dollar bonuses again – and once again all is right with the world. Or is it? Where are all these Billions coming from? Not taxes… it must be magic, the money is created out of thin air, with the stroke of a pen the money is there.

Unfortunately, magic has a price. As these magic dollars are spent the supply of money grows and as the total supply of dollars grows, each individual dollar becomes worth less and less. The first recipients think it is an ordinary dollar and accept it at face value, but over time, people begin to realize that these aren’t ordinary dollars, they are ‘magic’ dollars which will become worth less and less, until they are totally worthless.

That is why inflation is often called the stealth tax. It secretly steals your savings and transfers your money to those at the head of the line who first got the ‘magic’ money. Who is that? It’s the government and the banks. Unfortunately, the volume control on the ‘magic’ money machine has been cranked up to full blast and the machine is cranking out Trillions of dollars – more than has ever been dreamed of before – and the day the piper will be paid is rapidly approaching.

We aren’t fooled by the current deflationary numbers. We know it is simply the calm before the storm. Those Trillions of dollars are like little hurricane seeds beginning to swirl off the coast, gaining speed and force until they mature into the monetary equivalent of Hurricane Katrina.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
