The Demise of State Sovereignty: Pressures on the Euro Amidst Rising Debt Levels

We announced our belief a few weeks ago that the Fed loan to the ECB could with fractional banking be $10 trillion. This past week we found that Credit Suisse shares our ideas as well. We believe that what this move by the Fed and the ECB is telling us that this is probably it. We also ask again how can the banks in the LTRP repay the funds in a timely manner? No plan has been presented before or since, there is no plan. Again, just throw money at the problem. The only player really capable of saving Europe is Germany and they would destroy themselves in the process. Everyone should have seen this coming but no one did except a handful of insiders. The resultant use of funds since the ECB distribution is hardly even mentioned in the media. It is a big dark secret.

Will Germany want to rescue France or will France want to be rescued? We say it depends in part who the next president of France is in May. Based on current polls the socialists lead, but it is a very tight race. If Sarkozy loses in the primaries it will then depend on whether the conservatives throw their vote to Marine Le Pen and FN, something the conservatives have never done before. One thing is for sure if either the Socialist or the FN win the euro is history and perhaps the EU as well. We watched this years ago when the conservatives threw almost all their votes to the Socialists. This time it could be different.

As in Germany more than 50% of French voters want an end to the euro, but the major media does not bring this to anyone’s attention. The French are no longer anxious about their leadership position. They want France the way it once was; not jumbled up with a group of other countries. We saw this when we lived there 60 years ago. The French had a great drive on to make sure words like hotdog and weekend did not seep into the French language. We can vividly remember our daughter in Middle School in Lausanne, and Miss Galgosh storming the corridors yelling, parle français. You have to live in a culture to understand it.

If Le Pen eliminates Sarkozy, France will have set a new course no matter if it’s Hollande and Le Pen, part of which is the people versus the status quo. Germans and the French want change and that is rational considering their citizens no longer want the euro and all the responsibilities that go with it. This is the eternal game that is being played out within these countries. Even though the Federal Reserve came to the temporary rescue they have really lost their key front man in Sarkozy. The Fed, the US Treasury, the CIA and the Mossad are going to have to go to Plan B and we do not think they have an effective Plan B. The French are not dumb. They know exactly what has been going on. French banks and the French government have gone the limit in the attempts to save the euro and its constituent parts, the sovereign nations.

After French elections and later German elections we believe you will find  that there will be cooperation on phasing out the euro among many things. The LTRO will allow for that transition phase. Greece has become a cat and mouse game and if the elitists and their appointed president think they are going to win they are mistaken. They lost 2-1/2 years ago. Once a new government is in place they’ll just reverse it all, default and go their own way, which they should have done 2-1/2 years ago, unfortunately Pasak sold them out. Greek creditors want a voluntary debt exchange, but they will take what they can get. In the end the creditors will sue and get nothing. Since when could you get blood from a stone: then there is the money owed via CDS, which is in the billions. Do you really believe credit default underwriters have any cash behind their promises to pay? It is all a scam. The backup funds do not exist. It should be noted no progress.

While Greece is headed to the dustbin the European one-worlders are fighting for an ESM, European Exchange Mechanism, which they plan to pass on January 30th in Mexico City. This would put the ESM online in July with a treasure chest of $650 billion, which may be increased. Where all the funds will come from remains to be seen and wait until the voters in each country discover they have been sold out again, and that their sovereignty is gone and with it their freedom and liberty. The banks do not have any transparency on the issue, so the public is essentially in the dark. That is the way the elitists like to work, secretly behind the scenes because you do not have a need to know.

Due to the LTRO at the ECB many investors are buying European bank debt again.

The downgrades of many sovereigns and banks recently cost the EFSF, its AAA rating. It fell from AAA to AA+. This is the pathway toward the implementation of the ESM, which has to be approved by all 27 EU members’ not just 17-euro zone members, as it was an amendment to the Lisbon Treaty. As of last week Germany refused to increase the size of the EFSF.

At the same time the ECB’s balance sheet has grown to $3.5 trillion dollars, which is larger than that of the Federal Reserve. This is a record and puts pressure on the euro, low interest rates and very high liquidity. The pledged collateral is in part financial garbage, and that means the euro will find it hard to stage a strong permanent rally.

Finland says the proposed new treaty is unnecessary and harmful. Their foreign minister says that Finland should not sign the treaty. The majority of the parliament has the same view.

During Sarkozy’s presidency almost $800 billion was added to the national debt.

If we have a Greek default and more defaults to follow, will Germany leave the euro? It would give them the perfect opportunity to do so.

The world is waiting with bated breath for the US and its allies to attack Iran. We said this is a game and that the US is not logistically prepared for an Iran invasion. That we said will come in a year or more. Beating the war drums is not the same as war. The propaganda has been spewing forth for a month in order to relieve pressure on European financial problems simple misdirection and misinformation.

We believe part of this game is the result of Iran selling oil in other currencies over the past two years. The basis for the dollar’s strength is the petro dollar and if that grip is broken the US dollar will be in serious trouble. Being a corporatist state allows the US to unilaterally do as it pleases. Financial sanctions on Iran will not work because they have powerful partners working with them, such as Russia, China, Japan and India. As far as others are concerned those who were beaten into submission by the State Department, we wonder where they will get their oil after the embargo is lifted? Actions bring consequences. A consequence of which can be pointed out in a recent agreement between China and Japan to deal in their own currencies, rather than in US dollars in trade settlement. The dethroning of the US petro-dollar is in process.

The elitists in NYC and London are finding out Iran is no pushover as was Iraq and Libya. The US is never your friend and it is all about money and power. As a result the Japanese are buying Chinese bonds, which makes the agreement more significant. Over time the US dollar will lose its preeminent position and then finally the US will implement trade tariffs to finally stop the massive exodus of jobs and companies from the US. An important result as well will be the strengthening of the yen and yuan versus the dollar. If the euro fades from the scene it will make the yen and yuan more important. Without a euro the US dollar will be under intense pressure. For some time the euro has acted as blocker and cover for the dollar and that luxury is coming to an end. You just saw US backstage action in the form of grading house downgrades to make the euro the negative highlight. Those raters are all in the pocket of the City of London Wall Street and the Fed. That to us explains the timing and tells us they want the euro and Greek problems to go on as long as possible. These elitists could care less about the future credibility of S&P, Moody’s and Fitch. All they care about is immediate results. These same agencies gave AAA ratings to mortgage securities that were Triple B. The court said they made a mistake – a $4 trillion mistake? You have to be kidding us. The game is rigged and has been for a long, long time.

It is Monday and as we write the big financial meeting is being held in Europe. The proposals as we understand them are already set in stone. Greece will issue a new 30-year bond, initially paying 3.10%, which would rise over time to 4.75%. they call this an orderly default, as implemented in Argentina 10-years ago.

In addition a fiscal, ESM, pact will be implemented taking over each state’s budget and spending. That pact would eliminate state sovereignty. There would still be fines or controls for those states that broke the rules.

The World Bank disclosed last week that it was lowering world GDP growth rates from 3.6% to 2.5%. High-income nations fell from 2.7% to 1.4%, which for the US would be 1-1/2% to 2%, which we changed our figures to three weeks ago. The Bank sees Mexico at 3.5%, more then double the rate of the US. They see European growth at 3.3%, which we see at 2% at best.

If you can believe this, the European downgrades, now that they have been accomplished, has generally set support levels for stock and bond markets, this in spite of a probably 20% plus lower S&P earnings for 2012. In three-months the Dow and S&P are up about 20%, which can only be maintained at best.

The unbelievable prosperity since WWII is over, as use of credit is curtailed and the US and world returns to reality. The average debt increase is $2.5 billion per year or $50 billion a year. That sustainability cannot be maintained indefinitely.

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?
