There Isn’t Enough Sovereign Wealth To Bail Out Entire First World Banking

Worst Sovereign Debt Countries Cannot Bail Out Global Banking | Culture of Life News

Europe is a confederation. Since it was a loose one, it grew tremendously after the fall of the Soviet empire.  It began with six members and was 9 members in 1973 after Nixon cut the US gold standard.  Today, there are more than twenty states with a host of others pending.  This confederation is now collapsing because it is a bubble and not a union.  All unions are created with a lot of bloodshed.  For some reason, this is how humans operate in general.  The EU is going bankrupt individually rather than, like the US, as one entity.


The entire EU is desperate for capital.  These disjointed, individual states operating with one currency but no real center of power are going about the planet, begging for sovereign wealth to bail out the indebted portions of this huge non-empire.  Desperate for market power, Japan is planning to give IMF $50 bil to ease Europe’s debt crisis ‹ Japan Today


The IMF—which along with the European Central Bank and EU makes up the “troika” of bailout contributors—said in January it was seeking to increase its lending capacity by up to $500 billion to confront the debt crisis…Japan said it expects to pay for the latest contribution by using a refund from the $100 billion it gave to the IMF in 2009 to fight the financial crisis.


So, where is this $500 billion?  China and Germany have it.  So does Japan.  But Japan also has hanging over its head its own government debt which is immense.  Note the story above:  Japan actually isn’t giving up its sovereign wealth or empty its FOREX accounts to save the EU from its own mistakes.  No, they are going to play an accounting trick!


Evidently, scared by the US and EU’s housing bubble collapse, Japan was anxious to keep up its exports so it basically funded the bankrupt Western system so it could pretend to be solvent and capitalized.  Then, the Western banks could continue to lend to reckless and stupid borrowers who want more debts, not pay off anything.


So, this cycle, Japan is giving HALF of what it gave before or rather, isn’t asking for its money back from the previous bail out.  But this money which is not new money  in the IMF will continue to back lending within Europe so they can pretend their system works.  This is pure silliness and fools no one.  Japan is in very deep trouble now with trade deficits.  Their sovereign wealth will melt away as this deficit relentlessly sucks it out of the country.


The prognosis for many EU countries is bad as we can see from my graph above: they are not only not sovereign wealth nations, they are sovereign debt nations with the US being the giant black financial hole, dwarfing all others when it comes to no sovereign wealth and too much debt held by other nations.  More on leaked Greek debt report | Brussels blog | News on the European Union from the Financial Times –

It also notes that Greek banks, which were originally thought to need €30bn in recapitalisation funds, a figure that was later raised to €40bn, will now likely need €50bn.


Then it goes onto note that the €200bn debt restructuring – which involves €100bn in losses for private investors and is known as “PSI” for “private sector involvement” – may also have unintended consequences by creating a new class of investors. The reasons for this are complex, but essentially those who participate in the deal will get new bonds that are backed by both the eurozone rescue fund, the European Financial Stability Facility, and the Greek government. Such a “co-financing structure” between the EFSF and the Greek government makes the new bonds more secure than any other bonds the Greek government are likely to issue – and thus scare off future private investors.


All deals are moved relentlessly from one government entity to the next higher one and the ultimate goal is to shove the entire thing into some foreign entity which then can be cheated by everyone refusing to pay up.  Many humans think that it is funny, cheating lenders.  After all, they make money out of thin air!  But…the money making, until this last decade, had to be based on savings: capital.


In the great 1929 crash in the US, savers lost everything as people using loans to speculate in real estate and stock markets as well as European bonds from WWI.  This destroyed our economic base and killed commerce.  Banking insurance was created to prevent these sort of losses but what that meant was the government had to take the losses.  So, banking lending was very heavily regulated to prevent bad loans!


This was destroyed during the last 35 years starting with Reagan’s bank changes.  The EU, Japan and the US decided that insurance by government fiat was enough and let loose the reins.  On top of this, AIG was allowed to pretend they, too, were insuring everyone’s lending!  This was done with the fictitious creature they created out of thin air: the derivative swap deals.  These proved in the end to be as fake as many borrower’s promises to pay off higher and higher and higher debts.


So, the banking systems have this gaping wound that bleeds and bleeds: people of all types from top of society to the dregs, unable or unwilling to pay off debts they promised they would pay.  I knew a now deceased never-do-well who deliberately piled on as many debts as possible when he knew he was planning to go bankrupt.  So he sought out maximum debt opportunities and in less than six months of getting a severe amount of debt on his back, dumped it all and thought he was a very clever guy.


This attitude problem is rampant.  What the deep in debt nations wish above all is to go quietly bankrupt and then start all over again, happy as a lark.  Greece is in agony right now because they haven’t gone bankrupt, yet.  They want the cycle to start all over again with no penalties.


NO banking system can operate for more than two generations in this sort of belief system.  The derivative swap game is dead and exists only on banking ledgers as they pretend they, too, are not bankrupt.  They can pretend they will bail out each other.  The US gave the IMF and EU banks trillions in bail out funds printed up on computers and in turn, the US now has raging inflation while pretending there is no inflation.


To top off everything, the economic war with Iran is butchering the NATO and Asian allies as well as killing the US as oil prices shoot upwards relentlessly.  I see stories in the US mainstream talking about high energy prices and not one mentions the Iran oil boycott!  How insane is this?


Look at the sovereign wealth nations!  Iran…is one of them!!!!  Not us!  Iran!  Iran is RICH like Libya!  And unlike Libya, is extremely strong in the military as well as social sense and has a much bigger population that knows very well, the US and Israel work with NATO countries to disarm oil producers in order to control the profits from sales.


The #2 sovereign wealth nation is that country of hard-toiling ants who don’t act like the legendary grasshoppers of ancient Greek fables:  In Germany, a Limp Domestic Economy Stifled by Regulation –


Alongside the export juggernaut, though, is another, creakier economy that operates well below its potential and holds back not only Germany but the rest of Europe, some economists say.

This economy is overregulated, intended to insulate insiders from competition and deeply resistant to change. Though Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel, often harangues countries like Spain, Italy and Greece to become more competitive, the German economy features some of the same flaws that they do, including protected professions and zoning laws that favor existing businesses over new ones.


Stability!!!!  Yes!!!!  This is what amazes me: Germany protects local businesses and helps them be profitable and keeps them alive.  I watched in horror as all the businesses in my small rural town vanished one by one as NAFTA and then global free trade ate up everything.  Walmart and its cousins then ate up all the retail businesses here.  We now have virtually nothing!


I lived in Germany and made purchases there.  The NYT article talks about how the police won’t let businesses run 24/7.  Well, we have this culture now and workers in retail have ferocious hours that impinge on everything.  We saw this year the brutal practice of forcing workers to leave in the middle of Thanksgiving to open stores before midnight!  There are no real holidays for retail labor anymore.  Everyone is being worked to death.


“Germany has what I would call a dual economy,” said Andreas Wörgötter, a senior economist at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development in Paris.

“On one side, we have this very dynamic, innovative, competitive and refreshingly unsubsidized export sector,” he said. “On the other side, there is a much less glamorous services sector which depends on barriers to entry, subsidies and not developing and reaching out for new activities.”


Social stability is expensive but valuable beyond words.  It is the #1 thing that keeps the peace, prevents wars, prevents child abuse, stops poverty.  Instead, in the US, we have this ‘eat it up and then go somewhere else’ ideology that has left huge swaths of this nation in ruins.  My own village of Berlin is over 200 years old.  It is now being viciously decimated.


The next sentence is where things get really dire. The analysis suggests that the medicine being fed to Greece – trying to drive down wages and costs through austerity measures to make the Greek economy more competitive internationally – will lead to higher debt levels in the near term that may never be overcome.


They, the internationalists who hate local stability are relentlessly bankrupting the US.  They are telling us, we can pile on infinite debts if only it is at ZIRP rates.  They are getting our central bank to make trillions in loans to keep their own messed up banks running.  They also, that is, our internationalist community, is forcing the US State Department to kill the US public with high oil prices so that Iran can be weakened and then looted.


Our looting expedition in Iraq is increasingly a total failure:  Farmers grow angry as Iraq stops buying US rice.  The Iraqis hate us.  Japan dislikes US rice, too.  They buy the minimum required via treaties whereby the US gets to import rice to them and they export expensive cars to us which is why we have this immense trade deficit with them.
Meanwhile, the Protests in Afghanistan over Quran burning has now led to the police in Afghanistan shooting our soldiers who are stuck there.  The end is neigh in Afghanistan.  The roiling hatred of the NATO invaders is now total.  We can no longer bribe them into being quiet.  They are now demanding the commander of the US run prison be put on trial and I presume, executed.
Of course, this won’t happen.  What will happen is, we get finally kicked out.  All those dead soldiers and a trillion US dollars all for nothing.  But then, we chose this path.  Religious wars never turn out good in the end.

    Yes, How do you like that supply side economics, globalism and Milton Friedman neoliberal economy now?

    We went from a demand side, largest creditor nation in the world and now we are the biggest debtor nation. Thanks for the stats–just goes to show that as soon as the countries around the world move away from the petro-dollar we are toast!

  2. Peter

    The USA rice farmers comments were amazing!!!!
    Those ungrateful Iraqis…We gave them freedom and they won’t buy our rice!
    Do they really believe their own bullcrap?

  3. Most certainly they believe their own bullcrap. The American mythology is ingrained into their selfimage. It will take a very rude awakening for them to question their programming, if they are capable of doing so at all. Some will hold out until the bitter end.

  4. Joseppi

    This is recycling and conservation at it’s best. Now of course we have to consider that it will be live unproductive old folks warming the productive ones in the future.

    Minister praises plan to heat swimming pool from fires of crematorium
    A money-saving plan to heat a swimming pool with energy from the cremation of dead bodies has been backed by a senior Government minister.

  5. I had to laugh at “It also notes that Greek banks, which were originally thought to need €30bn in recapitalisation funds, a figure that was later raised to €40bn, will now likely need €50bn.”

    If it keeps going up like that, pretty soon they’ll be talking about real money.

    They should give George W. the job of organizing their bailout. He would have just demanded 700 billion from the beginning, and increased his demands until the law-makers signed off on it. Never mind all these reports, and quibbling over 10 billion more or less. George would just get it done.

  6. The negative reality of the economics of the forty year debt trade of the Milton Friedman Free To Choose floating currency regime, also known as the Banker regime of Neoliberalism, is that once lucrative inflationism, is now through creative destruction, turning into destructionism, where the Angela Merkel and EU ECB IMF Troika diktat regime, also known as the Beast regime of Neoauthoritarianism, is coming to claw back every bit of wealth garnered by capitalism, with the result being a Euro gulag of debt servitude governed by totalitarian collecti7vism and regional statism.

    The Second Greek Bailout is the nail in the coffin for capitalism, which was based on growth and profit. Through creative destruction and regionalization, capitalism is being replaced by regional global governance, specifically a ten toed kingdom of regional global governance, where diktat is de rigueur.

    Unknown to the socialists as well as to the libertarians, is that Daniel’s interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream presents the statue of the progressions of kingdoms, Daniel 2:31-45. Kings have ruled mankind throughout history; these have included Nebuchadnezzar ruling Babylon; Cyrus and Cyrus and Darius ruling Merdo Persia; Charlemagne ruling Rome; Tony Blair ruling Great Britain, Angela Merkel ruling the EU, and George Bush, The Decider, ruling America with Unilateral Authority. Soon ten kings will come to rule, each in his own regional power base. Most recently two iron kingdoms, the combine of the UK and European rule, and the US Hegemony, have governed the world; their power is now flowing into a ten toed kingdom of regional global governance, Daniel 2:31-33.

    God’s Sovereign Will, Ephesians 1:1-11, not any human action, will bring forth a revived Roman Empire, that is a German led Europe. In the supranational New Europe, national sovereignty will be seen as a relic of a bygone era. Martin Luther wrote correctly in On the Bondage of the Will, there is no free will for humanity because any will they might have is overwhelmed by the influence of sin.

    God at the appropriate time will open the curtains, and onto the world’s stage will step the most credible of Europe’s political leaders, the Sovereign, Revelation 13:5-10. He will be accompanied by Europe’s banker, the Seignior, Revelation 13:11-18. These will have have EU wide sovereign authority. The Little Authority, Daniel 7:24-25, will work behind the scenes in regional framework agreements to change our times and laws. The people will be amazed by this, and place their faith and trust in the Sovereign; they will give their allegiance to his diktat, Revelation 13:3-4.

    Life in Europe can now be characterized as a totalitarian collective. Totalitarian collectivism is the EU’s future. European Socialism will die in 2012. Diktat will provide seigniorage, that is moneyness, to replace the seigniorage of national treasury bonds. Diktat will become a currency, that is a payment used in the exchange of goods or services.

    The seigniorage of fiat money is failing, and the seigniorage of diktat is rising in its place, as is seen in the rise of power of the EU ECB IMF Troika to appoint technocratic government in Greece and Italy as well as in the massive second Greek bailout agreement.

    The Beast regime of Neoauthoritarianism, Revelation 13:1-4, is rising to replace the Banker regime of Neoliberalism. This monster of statism and collectivism is rising from the profligate Mediterranean countries of Italy and Greece. The Beast’s seven heads are rising to occupy in all mankind’s institutions, and its ten horns are rising to govern in all of the world’s ten regions. The Beast regime is to replace the Banker regime of Neoliberalism, The Beast regime is coming like a terminator that can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until mankind is totally dominated and subdued.

    Well nobody will run out of money.
    They will print and give the banks all they want.

    Banks can buy whatever they want with this money they get for free.
    Oil for example.

    The problem is that sovereign nations will stop selling anything at some point.

    “So, banking lending was very heavily regulated to prevent bad loans!
    This was destroyed during the last 35 years starting with Reagan’s bank changes. ” Absolutely right, Elaine, but there was another factor, imho, that was equally important. The media Mega-mergers that came about at around the same time as banking deregulation. The elites figured the media had lost them the Viet Nam war and so the elites figured they needed to control the flow of information. They were probably right. If there had been honest journalism in the 80’s the US might have avoided becoming so corrupted by the uber rich and their delusions.

  9. “The Beast regime is coming like a terminator that can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until mankind is totally dominated and subdued.”

    But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. Those who are allotted for death will die and those who are allotted for survival will live. The elect.

  10. Alstradomus

    Daniel 7:7&8 refers to the little horn that subdued 3 of the ten horns on the end times beast. If the ten heads are Europe then America subdued three when we subdued England, France and Spain to fulfill our “Manifest destiny from sea to shining sea. Proverbs 22 :7 states ” The borrower is servant to the lender”… Both words borrower and lender are translated from the Hebrew word lavah, which is the root word for Levite and leviathan.We have been under this system of debt and enslavement since the Osiris ,Isis, Horus mystery religion first used the solar Messiah myth 6,300 years ago. At the same time Draco became our north star constellation. The Sothic Coptic calendar dates back to 4241 BC and interestingly in our current era uses September 11 as its New Years Day, the day in 1941 that the first stone was set in the Pentagon and so on and on……

    Basically, all religions are attached to the stars. They are very much created to ease fears of change in the position of the constellations relative to the vernal equinoxes. The earth wobbles on its axis.

    So the ‘fixed stars’ are not fixed but shift relative to landmarks humans use to track when the sun is at its maximum, minimum and equal day/night splits.

    This ancient astronomy rolls onwards today with people fearing the dawning of a ‘new age’ as we shift from Pisces (Jesus was a fish icon originally) to Aquarius. In actuality, we are in Pegasus (thus, my icon here) that sails above and between the two fishes of Pisces.

  12. Alstradomus

    Exactly Elaine astro theology is the basis of all religion. All of the stars and planets were revered by the ancients. My theory and hope is based on this premise: A creator entity (that we have been programmed to call God) designed the system so that from the earth perspective we can realize the plan by the circular time line (oxymoron). Pegasus represents the New Jerusalem ( a city foursquare) and shares a star with Andromeda that begins where the first firsh of Pisces ascends to the upper heavens.
    The second head of the Pisces fish is centered under Pegasus at the point of the vernal equinox. Note : on September 23 2010 at the time of Autumnal equinox Earth oppsed Uranus and Jupiter at the same time of the harvest moon under Pegasus, putting the moon over the head of the fish( which is the shape of a Pentagram). This also sychronized with the autumn Hebrew festival of Sukkot for seven days, then we conjoined Saturn on the eighth day. Terrance McKenna’s timewave zero showed one final peak for October 1 2010 before ended on December 21 2012. The Mayans a looking for the return of the Quenzacotal, ot feathered serpent. Our current North star Polaris in the little dipper was not always a dipper. Some ancient maps call it the dragon’s wing, since it sits on the back of Draco. Soooo,The Polaris north star alignment at the wing tip of Draco is the return of the feathered or flying dragon/serpent. I find it interesting that Sarah Palin in some editorials is referred to as the North star and was the keynote speaker at CPAC. A brokered convention could put her in a position to be president..She is neocon zionistic and might just be the ANTICHRIST

    I can show you how to pay-off the total US-NATIONAL-DEBT in one year !!!

    How would you like to totally pay off the National Debt without costing the American People one penny?

    How would you like to pay-off the entire US DEBT TO CHINA in the process?

    How would you like to see the Social Security System have a total of $2.6 Trillion Dollars Cash in a separate Bank Account?

    How would you like to abolish the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and never pay Income Taxes Again?

    I know you think I am crazy. But, everything I am saying is very simple and very easy to do. All we need is do is vote for a President who really cares about America and the American people.

    Remember one thing during this entire post; KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE MONEY SUPPLY.

    If the money supply goes up you create INFLATION and Consumer Prices will increase.

    If the money supply goes down you create DEFLATION and Consumer Prices will decrease.

    If the money supply remains CONSTANT. Consumer Prices tend to trend lower.

    1) First we must abolish the Federal Reserve that was established in 1913 by President Woodrow Wilson.

    2) Then we can abolish the Internal Revenue Service established in 1913 along with the Federal Reserve, which serves as the collection arm of the Federal Reserve to pay itself an Annual Interest Payment for money we borrowed from ourselves.

    3) Then we must take “fractional reserve banking system” away from all banks and make them go back to a “100% reserve banking system”.

    4) Presently the Federal Reserve allows all banks to legally print $10 new Dollars for every dollar they hold on deposit (this is really counterfeiting). This increases bank profits and the Money Supply by a factor of tenfold for every new dollar printed by the Treasury Department causing Inflation.

    5) This year the Federal Government will borrow and print $1.5 Trillion Dollars from the Federal Reserve.

    Eventually this money ends up deposited in a bank. The Banks just like a magician are allowed to take that $1.5 Trillion Dollars and turn it into $15 Trillion Dollars, this will Increase the Money Supply by total of $15 Trillion Dollars causing even more INFLATION.

    Wait a minute!!! That is the same amount we need to pay off the entire Federal National Debt?

    We must take “Fractional Reserve Banking System” away from the banks and force them to use “100 % Reserve Banking System”, so we can totally pay off the entire National Debt.

    Then tell the Treasury Department to print up $15 Trillion Dollars of non-interest bearing Treasury notes (dollars) and buy back all the Interest bearing Bonds (Our Total National Debt).

    This will not increase the Money Supply by even one penny because we will destroy all the interest bearing Bonds purchased. We merely are exchanging $15 trillion dollars for bonds worth $15 trillion dollars.

    WOW.. We just paid off the entire $15 trillion dollar National Debt by printing non-bearing interest Treasury notes (dollars) and did not cost the American people one penny and did not increase the Money Supply.

    We totally eliminated the National Debt, eliminated annual interest payments on the National Debt, eliminated paying Federal Income Taxes and created a real positive Social Security Trust Fund surplus of $2.6 Trillion dollar.

    Every time I go through these calculations I keep thinking of new benefits.

    Here are some National Debt Facts:

    • Social Security trust fund is $2.6 Trillion Dollars in the black (IOU’s).
    • Social Security trust fund in 2010 ran a $68 Billion Dollar surplus.
    • Only $1.2 Trillion Dollars is owed to China and this will automatically be paid-off too.
    • $10 Trillion Dollars is owed to American people.

    When we pay-off the National Debt as I have suggested we automatically create a Positive Social Security Trust Fund of $2.6 trillion dollars and I suggest we place this money in a separate Trust Fund outside the reach of congress.

    The American people are forced by the IRS, the collection arm of the Federal Reserve, to pay personal Income Taxes to the Federal Reserve, who has absolutely nothing invested, about $400 Billion Dollars interest on the National Debt every year.

    I should point out if interest rates start rising because of Hyper-Inflation like back in the 1980s and that’s exactly what the Price of Gold is telling us right now. This interest we are paying on the National Debt could easily grow to an amount larger than the total Federal Gross Income tax receipts collected by the IRS.

    This Bank System we have in America is really a “Partnership between the Federal Reserve (a private company) and the Federal Government”. This sweetheart deal was underhandedly passed into law by Woodrow Wilson in 1913 and has been called into question many times.

    The US Federal Government has allowed the Federal Reserve to legally rob the American People out of more than $150 Trillion Dollars since its inception in 1913.

    In 1902, Woodrow Wilson was appointed President of Princeton University serving until 1910. Then in 1911, Wilson was elected as the Governor of New Jersey. He served until 1913 when he became President. Woodrow Wilson then pushed the Federal Reserve law through congress as payment to the Wealthy International Bankers who privately own the Federal Reserve Banking System for helping him get elected as President in 1913.

    We must force all the American Banks to go back to a Fair Banking System of “one hundred percent reserve banking system” or the banks will absolutely end up will all of our money.

    When you have a Central Banking System such as the Federal Reserve it likens me to Eight Guys Playing a game of poker and the House-man who has nothing invested in the game takes a rake-off of every hand played. If the game continues long enough at some point the House-man has all the money and the players will end up broke.

    Do you truly understand what is going to happen when the Feds are forced to start increasing the interest rates to stop the coming Hyper-Inflation they have created by counterfeiting our money in the amount of $150 trillion Dollars?

    Back in the 1980s Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker was forced to increase Interest rates because of run-away inflation during the Carter Administration and the Interest rates jump to around 20%. If that was to happen now we could easily see the Annual Interest Payment on our National Debt jump to around $2.8 Trillion Dollars a year. That my friend does not include the projected Annual Budget short fall of another $1.6 Trillion Dollars.

    This will not fix itself and must be stopped quickly as we are running out of time very fast.

    This is exactly why the Price of Gold has increased from $300/oz. to $1,800/oz., a six fold increase. Gold is trying to tell everyone something but no one is listening as usual?

    We could easily end up paying more annual interest on the National Debt than the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) collects in annual gross Income Tax receipts for Payment to the Federal Reserve?

    This is why we must do exactly like I am suggesting in this post or Face Absolute Total National Bankruptcy and without a doubt a humongous National Disaster.

    Can you just imagine living without Medicare, no Social Security Pension, no retirement pensions, living on the street, no money to buy food, people armed and fighting in the Streets trying to steal anything and everything in sight.

    Please copy and post if you like this idea.

    Vote for RON PAUL in 2012 as a third party Candidate because he is the the only one we can trust and he truly understands the problem with the Federal Reserve System.
