Max Keiser Warns that Leveraged Buyouts Could Create A New Feudalism

image_pdfimage_print
Max Keiser says the #1 bubble in the US is the bond bubble that is at a 240-year historic high due to low interest rates. Interest rates are at record lows so that central banks can prop up ailing commercial banks by buying their toxic assets, and that accounts for the $4.5 billion on the Federal Reserve’s asset balance sheet.

Keiser believes that, instead of the bubble popping, the entire stock market may be taken private through a process called leveraged buyouts. By that he means the largest corporations will borrow money created by banks out of nothing to purchase controlling interest in their corporate competitors. To get the money, the borrowers pledge the assets of the to-be-acquired companies as collateral for the loans. After the companies are acquired, the buyer sells off bits and chunks of the assets of the acquired companies to pay off the loans.

When the process is done, the acquired companies are no longer competitors and, in fact, may not even exist; the buyer has made a huge profit, the banks have collected a huge amount of interest; the marketplace is another step away from free enterprise capitalism and a step closer to a new form of feudalism in which there are economic lords and serfs with no middle class. Already, 83% of the stocks traded are controlled by 1% of the population. When that figure becomes essentially 100%, the stock market will be private. -GEG

Jon Rappoport Investigates the Cult of COVID

July 10, 2020 Jon Rappoport 0

No one has done a proper study for a novel, never-seen-before virus, and it will never be attempted because it would destroy the theory that one virus is causing a pandemic. A few people at the top know the truth, but the cult operates on blind faith.

Dr. Scott Jensen Accused by the State of Spreading Misinformation

July 8, 2020 Dr. Scott Jensen 2

The State’s Medical Practice Board accused Dr. Jensen of ‘providing reckless advice’ on a news program by comparing COVID-19 to the ordinary flu. [Dr. Jensen is correct, of course, and If this goes to court, there is a good chance he will prove his case. Our guess, therefore, is that it will never go to court.]

Places of worship must therefore discontinue singing and chanting activities and limit indoor attendance to 25% of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, whichever is lower. A choir practice without masks was blamed for an acute outbreak of coronavirus in Washington State in March.

The Fed balance sheet is $4.5 trillion, not $4.5 billion.

The feudal peon had it better then Americans do today. At least Henry VIII gave them on “out” from “commerce”.

The fact is: Financial investement schemes are gambling activities at best for the ‘little guy’. But for those who control the market, they are mafia rackets.

Result: All transfer of ownership was accomplished by lawlessness not by morally right means. All governments run gigantic, multi-tiered, broad-based money laundering operations. You can’t loose when you’re on top of that pile.

So who will hold them accountable? Surely not the (bought and paid for) UN officials!
