American Bank Bail-Ins Are Beginning

CSS Offical-New-Logo2


It would appear that your bank is preparing to go on a bank holiday. No, not a vacation, but a holiday. After reading this article, you may find it prudent to check on the liquidity of your bank accounts and investment monies. Why? Because bank bail-ins appear to be commencing.

The Banks Are Not Our Friends

We are all concerned that one day we will attempt to gain access to our money in our bank accounts and and the banks will refuse to honor the request and keep the money. From an anecdotal perspective, it appears that the day that we cannot gain access to our money is now here. There are two instances that I am personally aware of, that the banks are failing to give their customers full access to THEIR money.

Bail-Ins Appear to Be Beginning

On Monday, one man that I personally know recently attempted to transfer a sizable sum of money (i.e. $110,000) from savings to checking to cover a check he had written for a large purchase. He attempted to move the money through online banking, which nobody should ever engage in, and was unsuccessful. He went to the bank and was subsequently told that there was a problem with his account and he could only transfer about 10% of what he intended to transfer from savings to checking. He inquired as to what the problem was and he was told that the branch did not have access to that information, only that he would not be permitted to make this transfer of funds “at this time”. Today, the charge will hit the bank and the check that he wrote is likely to bounce and will have serious ramifications to his credit. He told me that he is returning to his bank, Chase, with his attorney.

In a more serious situation, a man who has direct deposit from his employer to his bank account, has failed to receive his latest check. The money was due to be paid into his account on December 20, 2014. He called his employer’s accounts payable and was told that the credit had posted on the evening of December 19. Yet, the bank has told this desperate man that they have not received his check. The check also included an end of year bonus and as such is sizable (e.g. in excess of $60,000). This means that the bank has had his money for nine days and cannot account for the money. I have advised this Bank of America account holder to contact the FBI and report this as a crime.

Both victims approached me , about a week apart, because they were both aware that I had previously written articles which are highly critical of the banking system with regard to how insolvent they truly are and they hoped I would have some insight as to what they could to gain access to their money. The purpose of this article is to fire a shot across the bow of the banks and let them know that we are raising the alarms of what is going on. Where there are two instances of bank thievery, there are two hundred cases. I am requesting that anyone with knowledge of bankster crimes against their depositors pass along this information to myself and I will attempt to synthesize the information and report on the trend curves in these matters as they are occurring.

By the way, Mac Salvo, reported this same kind of crime last month.

The Ownership of the Banking System Is In Flux

I had a significant conversation that I wish everyone in the nation who has money in a bank could have listened to. I was relating the stories of the two men who cannot gain full access to their accounts, to an individual who holds a significant position within the banking system. I approached my old friend in the hope that he could provide some insight as to what is going on and what these two individuals could do to pry their money loose.

I was informed that some of the banking system is being purchased and the sale of banking assets is happening in a very covert manner and as long as a sale is pending, a bank does not want to see fluctuations in their net worth. He also told me that there are statistical algorithms that banks have been told that they must stay within because it impacts the baseline value of a bank in a sale. At that moment, I experienced an epiphany. I was aware that I had knowledge which matched word-for-word what my friend was telling me.


George Soros Is the Ultimate Economic Hit Man


Just over 20 years ago, international banker George Soros made his most famous investment by shorting the British pound and pocketing a billion dollars in the process.  Following this watershed event, he has become well known for moving money and then betting on stock market crashes. In several instances, Soros has been known to rig various markets to fail for his own gain as well as the gain of the international banking cartel in Basel known as the Bank of International Settlements.

Several months ago, Soros made raised eyebrows by making  a billion dollar stock bet against the S&P 500. At that particular time, Soros proclaimed, through his actions, that there were warning signs of coming S&P 500 troubles which signaled dangerous times ahead for the US economy. Because Glass-Steagall has been repealed, many banks have a direct and indirect presence in the stock market as evidenced by the folly of the credit-swap derivatives market. Going into the final few days of the year, the American Stock Market has an unprecedented bubble which is reminding many of the months leading of the 1929 Stock Market crash.

Disturbingly, Soros has repeatedly demonstrated that he has had both accurate and advanced knowledge of stock market and banking crashes in the past. Subsequently, savvy investors keep a very close eye on his money movements and resulting holdings as Soros is the “Canary in the mine”. He is the world’s ultimate economic hit man and both bankers and politicians watch his every move with fear and apprehension.

According to a 2014 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, it was revealed that Soros sold his holdings in Citigroup, J.P. Morgan and Bank of America. Soros subsequently moved his money and took up new positions in gold and tech stocks associated with Chinese money movement. Soros has moved his money to RF Micro Devices, Nuance Communications, Marvel Technology Group, Nokia Corp., and Cypress Semiconductor. Soros also boosted his stake in Herbalife and took up a new position in Yamana Gold and AuRico Gold, and New Gold Inc. This sent shockwaves among aware investors in the banking and stock market arena.

Soros’ money movements are significant for several reasons. First, he is now betting against both the U.S. Stock Market and now the three major US domestic banks. Second, Soros has obtained a sizable gold portfolio which is something one would want to do if one were expecting, or causing a crash of currency to occur. Finally, and most significantly, Soros is betting against the solvency of the Federal Reserve by running from the three of the major investors (i.e. the three major banks) in the Federal Reserve. This has a lot to do on why the U.S. and Britain practiced for widespread bank failures on November 10th in a drill facilitated by the FDIC. This is also highly significant  because this is occurring at a time when the Federal Reserve gave permission to various Chinese interests (i.e. all controlled by the Chinese military) to purchase sizable positions in American banking which serves to underwrite and partially fund the Federal Reserve.

It is interesting to note that JP Morgan Chase, earlier in 2014, has sold their property located at One Chase Manhattan Plaza skyscraper to Fosun International, a Chinese investment firm, for  the bargain basement price of $725 million. This is only the latest in a series of New York real estate purchases by Chinese investors for properties formerly reserved for Federal Reserve members. This is a highly significant event that received only a couple of days of attention, but quickly faded from the front pages. In a future article, I will go into more detail how Soros is setting a trap for both the Chinese and the Federal Reserve. For now, let’s suffice it to say that his actions are helping to set the course for World War III because war is something that desperate nations engage in when they have no other financial options. America, China, Russia and their military allies are quickly approaching this moment.

Why It Is Becoming Difficult to Gain Access to Your Bank Account

On November 16, 2014, I covered the fact that the G20 nations passed a joint resolution to get their nation’s central banking system to declare that your bank account was not defined as money. This was done because the G20 central banks are approaching insolvency. This put your assets at the bottom of the list for FDIC compensation in the event a bank failure.

The fact that these two events happened in close proximity to each other is not surprising. However, it is surprising that these two events (i.e. the bank failure drill and the G20 declaration) happened in such close proximity to each other presents clear signs that the banking industry is preparing to hold on to your money in attempt to stave off financial ruin.


It is important to not leave more than an operating amount of money in your bank. How close the banks are to an all-out bank holiday is difficult to predict. However, I believe we are seeing the chest pains of a banking system,  which will culminate in World War III. What you can do to minimize this looming and catastrophic event will be covered in my last article of 2014.

    Hello All,

    The clock is ticking. Either the NWO folks could crash America over the next couple decades by allowing the illegal immigrants to over-run the country and voting booths in the coming years, or they could do it sooner. I believe it will be sooner, given all the preparations they made for their Manchurian Candidate Obama. They could have put in place another Bush or Clinton type, but instead they created this man Obama, I believe to accellerate their implementation of the NWO agenda.

    Remember Deagel Corp’s prediction for almost 250 million Americans gone in the next 10 years, 50% autism rate by 2025, and the many other signs straight off the pages of Matthew Ch. 24, and you will see the need to prepare- food, water, pet food, medications, etc.- for hard times, until the Lord Jesus takes His children to be with him. It will likely quickly get worse before the Rapture, given His promise in Matt 24:29 that His return would occur “immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days”.

    The government of Cyprus has taken the direct approach.

    On a given midnight, the government transferred a percentage of every depositor’s money to itself.

    Now that they did it in Cyprus for a pilot-program, expect it soon at a theater near you.

    ‘Morning sir, when you say that the economies of the world will lead to WW3 I too am inclined to believe this is exactly what will happen. It is so sad indeed that our economy can only flourish during a military buildup. Why, oh why can’t we accept slower growth and less prosperity by building a peace oriented society. But alas, that is just wishful thinking isn’t it? When this war caused collapse arrives we will all be broke and broken. God help us all, for in watching what is happening around the globe in all realms then I am concerned in the extreme that 2015 will be our last year as a nation. I sincerely hope we all celebrate a good Christmas and New Years next year and get a good laugh out of my prediction…but banks or no banks things do not look good at all. I think it was Clausewitz that said only ‘uncontrollable chaos’ is more destructive than ‘unbridled war’. No one can argue the fact that we are headed over the waterfall in to a nightmare abyss of uncontrollable chaos that few will survive. What bothers me the most is as of yet, even at this late date, people are still living in denial, sir, pure self destructive denial. My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will move upon them to start prepping. God help us all and thanks for all you are doing.

    Just a thought here. Do you think they would do this as they usually do when everyone is distracted and not paying attention, I.E., NYE?

    They have done this before with other things, why not this?

    Prime example of the Hegelian Dialectic….problem, reaction, solution…they’re creating the problem that they themselves will rush to the rescue with a solution. Never ends up well for those that are not in control. To the one that had the comment about uncontrollable chaos….that’s the rub, they’ll create order out of the chaos, but say good bye to any remaining freedoms we hold dear. We’re about to return to the dark ages in terms of flow of free thought/ideas and religious freedoms.

    Dave, I am the poor person in my family. 2008 did not affect me because I had nothing in the market to lose. My family members are wealth. What would you recommend for someone with liquid assets (money market, stocks) other than putting in the mattress, like in old times. Where is the safe place? Is there a safe place anymore?

  16. Useless Eater December 30, 2014 at 1:11 pm

    Right off, Dave, the Sixty-plus Grand Guy is prima facie suspiciousness to me. A $60K yearly bonus? Look into it for him? Could be a test. Has the integrity of the check writer been verified? Many employers have played this sort of game before. I would never suggest having the FBI called in, just because of your high profile alone. This might be a test. Tread lightly. The baking system has made international law their business, not ours. Stay local. Greed is a killer. I would cut my loss and learn form it in this case. Eggs in baskets and all that.

    A destitute government is a dangerous government. The statists have transcended our government from—“of the people, by the people, for the people”—to—of the deceiving manipulators, elevated and blackmailed by fascist money, for mutual enrichment from the public trough. Our phony fiat money creation (petro dollar of post-gold 1971 origination) is under attack from the BRICS and associated nations creating a gold, industrial output and commodity producing foundation for currency value, and investment and trade arrangements.

    Because the western banking cabal was so greedy they dismantled western production and sent it to low wage havens, and our value added foundational industry has been radically slashed along with the good jobs. We are hollowed out and our currency value will soon be forced to reflect it. So, we are in a currency protection war, but soon real war is coming. Expect it in the Mideast, where the endgame is energy resources and for us petro-dollar retention, and the surface reason(but the real spiritual underpinning) will be hatred of Israel. I see an end times repeat of Isa.9:11,12, with Rezin/Syria and Philistia/Palestinians and allies attacking Israel. . Russia seems to be headed there in reaction to our Ukraine pressure against them, and they declared our CIA created ISIS their enemy, because they need the port facilities and energy pipeline planned through Syria, and Syria is under attack from the CIA proxie, ISIS. So—get prepared for turmoil in 2015.

    Meanwhile the Pope is promoting a major religious alliance to agree on taking a global/UN supporting position on global warming actions—and has the awaiting pre-agreement between Jewish, Muslim and Vatican religious leadership to establish an independent city state section in Jerusalem to enable all three major religions to have use of the holy sites. I would alert all to see that as the likely Dan.9:27 and 11:28,30 “holy” covenant opening the final week of years of the age.

    That old relic, gold will soon become vital to those trying to retain purchasing power as digital dollars will be stolen and necessarily revalued, as Dave has told us.

  24. John December 30, 2014 at 4:54 pm

    Dodd-Frank which labels all US depositors “Investors”. Depositors are first in line to get their money back, investors are LAST in Line.

    The Open Bank Resolution in New Zealand, Parliament authorized bank Bail-in.

    Canada; Economic action plan 2013 (p144-145), authorizing bail-in of account holders.

    The FIX is in folks… and all the derivative holders have ‘super-priority’ to be paid first (all 1.3 quadrillion…)! There won’t be any money left after those pigs get to the trough. Also the American people can thank Congress for sticking them with the big banks $303 trillion in derivative debt. That’s right folks, you are the ones that guarantee the contracts and are committed to pay if the banks can’t (and they won’t).

  25. Rick December 30, 2014 at 5:35 pm

    You are incorrect in several of your assertions.

    What those banks did is not illegal. I am sure you are aware (or you should be by now) that when a person deposits money into a bank , they become a creditor.

    The Dodd-Frank bill clearly defined this a number of years ago. A person who deposits money in a bank becomes an investor, a creditor to that bank. it is no longer their money, they have given it to the bank of their own free will and technically, the bank can legally do just about anything they please with it.

    I’m not saying it’s right, I am just saying that this happened a long time ago and anyone who kept more than just enough money to pay bills in the bank the day after that law went into effect now has to deal with the consequences of their own decision.

    What idiot keeps 100k in the bank knowing what the rules are?

    Was he sleeping when Corizine stole millions of his clients money legally and never spent a day in jail for it?

    Was he sleeping when the Dodd-Frank bill passed declaring all depositors as creditors?

    Did he sleep through what happened in Greece when the banks stole their depositors money and got away with it?

    Was he sleeping when the IMF and then the G20 made it internationally legal to steal depositors money?

    Was he sleeping these last couple of years as the wealthy pulled most of their money out of the banks and moved it to tangible assets?

    Good Lord man, how could anyone with a brain not see this coming and pull their money out of the bank years ago?

    I got news for people… The 1.1 trillion dollar spending bill that just passed (with republican support mind you) also put taxpayers on the hook for 700 trillion in derivative exposure. Did anyone miss that as well?

    I am going to have a hard time feeling sorry for people who lose everything because they ignored the warning signs.

    It is obvious what they intend to do and has been for some time now. It is a little late to start preparing now. You best take what little you can get and buy food, water, barter items, weapons and ammunition while you still can people because if you think losing your life savings is bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

    You will be looking at losing your very life in the near future and starving to death won’t be any fun. That’s assuming you live long enough through the violence to starve to death.

    The good guy bad guy approach works every time just like the propaganda. My guess and just like the wife of a high military officer said recently, when drunk is that there was never a cold war. My guess is that we are all being played and the guys at the top of the food chain are all in it together and are laughing at everybody that buys the con. We all know you need someone to hate if you are in the corporate gv and need the masses to gladly give more money to fund the fight against the bad people we funded in the first place. Talk about fighting yourself! We are no better if we help the criminals kill innocent people. Quit supporting crime!

    After LaGarde’s numerology speech, I thought what the hell is this woman doing? She is either nuts or sending a coded message. So I went to the two banks to draw out IRA money. At the first rural commercial bank, they told me I could not have cash – only a check, which was very strange because what if I didn’t have an account at another bank. I previously had accounts at this bank, but closed them out when $25K mysteriously showed up in my account and then vanished without the proper paperwork or adjustments appearing in my statement; not even a recent deposit, just an ending balance. I took the check to the credit union and cashed in the IRA’s at this institution as well. They did give me cash and also cashed the check from the other bank.
