THE BIG PICTURE NEWS
Silicon Valley Bank Crisis: The Liquidity Crunch We Predicted Has Now Begun – “There are many fine articles out there covering the details of the SVB situation, but what I want to talk about more is the root of it all. The bank’s shortfalls are not really the cause of the crisis, they are a symptom of a wider liquidity drought that I predicted here at Alt-Market months ago, including the timing of the event. First, though, let’s discuss the core issue, which is fiscal tightening and the Federal Reserve. Everything is tied back to liquidity. With higher rates, banks are hard-pressed to borrow from the Fed and companies are hard-pressed to borrow from banks. This means companies that were hiding financial weakness and exposure to bad investments using easy credit no longer have that option.” – Brandon Smith – ANOTHER GOOD ONE FROM BRANDON AS USUAL!!!!
Are Bank Failures tied to COVID Lockdowns and THAT Giant Economic Destruction created over the past three years? – “Here’s some of what actually happened. MANY of the businesses that failed as a result of the lockdowns had outstanding loans with banks. They stopped paying back those loans. On top of that, many suddenly impoverished businesspeople took out government COVID loans and now they can’t pay them back. For banks, this creates what economists call a liquidity crunch. The first banks to fall are the ones who made the craziest loans for the most amount of money. But the problem doesn’t stop there. The SVB bank that just crashed undoubtedly has connections to other banks. You could say bigger banks back up the smaller ones. This tends to create a domino effect. So YES, the vicious COVID lockdowns are playing a significant role in what’s happening to banks as we speak.” – Jon Rappoport
The Great Reckoning – “No one should be deceived by what is happening. Last weekend, the Federal Reserve decided that the banks are all broke due to holding assets that have a declining market value, so the Federal Reserve effectively nationalized the banks. The only way they can regain control of money policy is to eliminate the market for long dated bonds by promising to buy them at face value. The Federal Reserve has nationalized the banks by nationalizing the bond market. This is required to avoid a bank collapse but also allow for the long overdue reorganization of the financial sector.” – The Z Man – ALTHOUGH NOT NOTED HERE THIS WILL HELP TO USHER IN THE CBDC, WHICH IS ONE OF THE WEF’S GOALS!!!!

Dear Congress: Ignoring Pfizer’s Bioweapon Crimes Doesn’t Make Them Go Away, it Makes the United States Complicit in Biowarfare – “Congress is being told the mRNA injections are ‘gene-editing therapies.’ They’re not.They’re bioweapons. USA will be complicit in war crimes if we don’t criminally prosecute Pfizer immediately.” – Karen Kingston
Canada is now Giving COVID-19 Vaccines to Minors Without Parental Consent – Doctors are Now a Hazard to Your Child’s Health – “This evil practice of coercing children to accept COVID injections without their parents’ approval is not only happening in Canada, it is happening in the United States as well, as some states allow children as young as 12-years-old to get COVID injections without their parents’ knowledge or approval” – Brian Shilhavy
Scientists create mice with ‘two dads’ in latest twisted drive to create life that ought not be created – Leo Hohmann
Why Are the Chickens So Sick? – “As the nation suffers through yet another High Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) outbreak, questioning the orthodox narrative is more important than ever. If thinking people learned only one thing from the covid pandemic, it was that official government narratives are politically slanted and often untrue. In this latest HPAI outbreak, perhaps the most egregious departure from truth is the notion that the birds have died as a result of the disease and that euthanasia for survivors is the best and only option. First, of the nearly 60 million claimed deaths, perhaps no more than a couple million have actually died from HPAI. The rest have been killed in a draconian sterilization protocol.” – Joel Salatin – IT’S ALL ABOUT CULLING THE HERD AND GETTING RID OF THE FOOD SUPPLY. ARE PEOPLE NEXT!!!!!
Greta Thunberg Deletes Tweet Claiming “Climate Change Will Wipe Humanity” By 2023 – “Greta is a ‘useful idiot’ for the climate change scam. Every decade a new and improved climate activist emerges. It just so happened that a child replaced former Vice President Al Gore.” – Tyler Durden – ACTUALLY HER TWEET SAYS IF WE DON’T QUIT USING FOSSIL FUELS IN 5 YEARS IT WILL WIPE OUT HUMANITY, NOT THAT HUMANITY WILL BE WIPED OUT IN 5 YEARS. BUT THE INSINUATION WAS THERE, NONE THE LESS, AND THE MEDIA WENT WITH IT AT THE TIME!!!!!

Rejecting the Bureaucratic Dictatorship – “We can’t live with these people, these wokeist pedophiles. We have to neuter the federal government forcing them on us through the Department of Education. The only thing that allows people with insane beliefs, reckless spending and violent tendencies to infiltrate the peaceful corners of the nation and rob it of its wealth and culture is the overall federal framework that stands in the way of common sense, decency and good business. The left is killing the right, and it’s a sort of murder/suicide pact. The left can’t survive without the economic engine of the right. Proof of that is the woke, liberal Silicon Valley Bank that just went under. We were promised that it would never happen again, but we knew it would, because they didn’t change anything, except to restrict depositors and monitor the hard-working, blue-collar family’s deposits while ignoring the 160-some Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) racked up by the Biden crime family.” – T.L. Davis
The glorification of sub-mediocrity- “Why woke, ESG, and DEI are so seductive to weak leaders. There is nothing mediocrity fears more than excellence.It’s how you get turfed out of the cushy gig you do not really merit. Positions of power are slippery and when you have one that consciously or merely instinctively you know that you do not deserve and are not truly qualified for, the last thing you want is some high caliber competitor coming up behind you, showing you up, and taking your chair.” – El Gato Malo

The Left Cheered for Persecution of Jan. 6 Rioters, Now It’s Being Used Against Them in ‘Cop City’ – “The state should never be expanded — no matter how politically advantageous it seems at the time. “Don’t dare call them protesters,” Joe Biden famously said after the largely unarmed mob of pro-Trump hooligans stormed the capitol to take selfies with cops, hang from rafters, sit in politicians’ chairs, and steal memorabilia like they were frat boys. “They were a riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists. It’s that basic. It’s that simple,” he said, later comparing the riot to an act of “sedition.”” – Matt Agorist
Biden’s Genius Detente Has Cost America the Old Ballgame – “President Joe Biden’s benefactors have lost the world, whether Russia wins or loses in Ukraine. Forcing the Russians to act, and pushing them into unbreakable alliances with China, India, and Iran, Biden and Co. have almost overnight turned the United States into one great big meaningless banana republic.” – Phil Butler
Biden to sign executive order to require background checks on more gun sales – “The executive order will increase background checks and prevent firearms dealers without licenses from selling guns” – Brooke Singman
Who exactly is paying for Natalie Biden’s luxury spring break? – “This week, Joe Biden traveled to San Diego to meet with foreign heads of state Rishi Sunak and Anthony Albanese. However, reports emerged that Joe’s granddaughter would also be on the trip. No, not little four-year-old Navy Joan (Hunter’s love child is still shunned by Joe and Jill), but high school senior Natalie, as she was on spring break. During a press briefing with reporters, Jean-Pierre’s mouth got ahead of her. When members of Biden’s extended family accompany him on official travel, does the president or a member of his family reimburse the federal government — taxpayers, that is — for his family members’ travel expenses? To this, Jean-Pierre said, “I actually don’t know.” What does she know? Anything? But get this: as it turns out, Natalie wasn’t the only Biden girl to join Joe: Well, I’ll be! Do I spy Joe’s apparent bathing buddy, his daughter, Ashley? Yep, it is she!” – Olivia Murray
Senator Mark Kelly inquired about social media censorship to curb bank runs – “During a Zoom meeting with The Federal Reserve, Treasury, FDIC, House, and Senate.” – Dan Frieth
Senator Elizabeth Warren, Barney Frank, and the Bank Bailout Blame Game – “In the wake of every Fed-sponsored mania there’s panic, followed by bailouts, followed by the blame game.” – Mish
Time’s Up: Treasury Finally Agrees to Turn Over Hunter Biden Transaction Reports – “For years, members of Congress have asked for access to suspicious activity reports (SARs) related to the Biden family’s foreign business deals. Those efforts were cut off by the Biden Administration and the Democratically controlled houses of Congress. Even after the GOP took over the House, however, the Treasury Department continued to refuse to turn over the SARs.” – Jonathan Turley
NYC and the Million Dollar Migrant Crisis – “The cost to feed and house illegal immigrants soars across the nation. Democrats are starting to see just how unsustainable their desired open border policies are in the real world.” – Kelli Ballard
Maxine Waters keeps saying ‘Silicone Valley Bank’ – “Until a few months ago, Rep. Maxine Waters, (D-Calif.) was the chair of the House Financial Services Committee, and she currently is the ranking member of the minority. She represents a district in the very state that contains Silicon Valley. One would think that any sentient consumer of information — both from media and from congressional sources — would understand the difference between silicon and silicone.” – Thomas Lifson – IT JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID!!!!
E Verify is BS – “The systemic attack and unrestricted warfare designed to abolish the United States and diminish the human population has many facets. Biological warfare, computer elections, supply chain attacks, dismantling energy supplies, food shortages, inflation, the surveillance police state, and a centralized digital bank currency, are just a few aspects of this all out assault. A virtual invasion via unfettered illegal immigration is also an important element to this campaign of asymmetrical warfare. Let’s hone in on the illegal immigration issue. It is painfully obvious that the problem of unfettered illegal immigration is deliberately created so as to herd unthinking conservatives into the knee jerk reaction of going along with E Verify. Creating and enhancing the police state apparatus is not the way to stop illegal immigration. Securing the borders is.” – Dr. Joseph Sansone – GOOD ARTICLE FROM JOSEPH!!!!!
Lunatic Reveals the Real Face of Republican “Non-interventionism” – “Rep. Anna Paulina Luna demonstrates women can be as psychopathic as their male counterparts. Luna is Latin for Moon. Lunatic is an insane person, once thought to be governed by phases of the Moon. I am convinced Anna Paulina Luna, a republican representative from Florida, is a Lunatic. It has nothing to do with the Moon. Here she is, calling for the end of the world as we know it. Explaining her support for withdrawal of US troops from Syria, Rep. Anna Luna (R-FL) says the troops should be used instead for the coming “fight” with China — which “will require 100% of our military.” That is to say, criminal troops, because the occupation of eastern Syria is illegal. They are to be pulled, not because stealing oil and killing Syrians is wrong, but because they will be needed when the USG declares war (without congressional authorization) against China. Luna, Lunatic, indeed.” – Kurt Nimmo
‘Mexico is safer than the U.S.’, Mexican president says – “”There’s no problem with traveling safely around Mexico.” Lopez Obrador said American tourists and Mexicans living in the U.S. were aware of how safe the country is, and pointed to a recent rise in Americans residing in Mexico. Last year saw a sharp jump in U.S. tourists coming to Mexico. He blamed an “anti-Mexico” campaign by conservative U.S politicians for negative reports about security. The U.S. embassy in Mexico did not respond to a request for comment about the president’s comments.” – Dave Graham
Ukraine’s Death by Proxy – “Ukraine is a pawn for militarists intent on degrading Russia and ultimately China in a self-defeating quest to ensure U.S. global hegemony. The end of this war, like most proxy wars, will be ugly.” – Chris Hedges

The Drums Of War With China Are Beating Much Louder Now – “The Chinese government has finally broken from its usual restrained commentary on the way the empire has been aggressively encircling the PRC with war machinery in ways that Washington would never permit itself to be encircled and waging economic warfare that it itself would never tolerate. “Western countries—led by the U.S.—have implemented all-round containment, encirclement and suppression against us, bringing unprecedentedly severe challenges to our country’s development,” President Xi Jinping said in a speech last week. China’s new Foreign Minister Qin Gang followed up on Xi’s comments the next day with a warning of “conflict and confrontation” should US aggressions and encirclement continue.” – Caitlin Johnstone
China’s Xi to Speak With Zelensky, Meet With Putin – “China recently released a 12-point peace plan for the Ukraine war” – Dave DeCamp
If You Can’t Hold It, It’s Not Really Yours – “The failure of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank reminds us of a very important truth — if you can’t hold it in your hand, you don’t really own it. That’s why it’s wise to hold at least some of your wealth in hard assets like gold and silver that are in your direct possession or at least stored in a secure, allocated, segregated, and insured storage facility.” – Michael Maharrey
Is It 2008 All Over Again? – “Is it 2008 all over again? Yes and no. “Yes” in the sense that the Fed created a massive bubble in risk assets. Also “yes” in the sense that banks made stupid decisions, violating central tenets of risk management by lending money to clients that could never pay it back (this time tech startups instead of high risk mortgage borrowers). And finally “yes” in the sense that the guilty players get bailed out by the tax-payer and the wealthy are made “whole” with preferential treatment due to their connections to DC. However, that’s where the similarities end… because the issues the financial system faces today are far greater and systemic that the ones it faced in 2008.” – Graham Summers, MBA
A Mile-High House of Cards… 3 Ways to Protect Yourself Before Your Bank Collapses – “It could all spiral out of control in an instant. Bank holidays, capital controls, bail-ins, deposit confiscations, and forced conversions to central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), are all on the menu… and sooner than most think. These measures are like an ambush… They’re only effective if it’s a surprise. Whenever you hear a central banker or a politician say something won’t happen, you can almost be certain it will happen—and probably soon.” – Nick Giambruno

Yes, the Latest Bank Bailout Is Really a Bailout, and You Are Paying for It. – “Now, many readers might be saying to themselves, “I thought bank deposits were insured!” That, of course, is correct, but deposits are only legislatively insured up to $250,000 by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Moreover, it is extremely easy to acquire deposit insurance on much more than $250,000 by simply keeping money at more than one bank. That $250,000 limit applies to the deposits at each bank where a depositor keeps funds. In an illustration of the laziness and arrogance that so characterizes our modern financial class, however, many of the wealthiest depositors at Silicon Valley Bank couldn’t be bothered with managing their deposits, and they essentially ignored the deposit-insurance rules that even a ten-year-old understands when opening his first bank account. As a result, many venture capitalists and other wealthy SVB customers stand to lose a lot of money. At least, they stood to lose a lot of money before Sunday evening,” – Ryan McMaken

Finding, Buying, and Improving My Bugout Location – Part 1 – “In this article, I will describe my search for a bugout location (BOL). I would consider it typical for someone living in the eastern United States. I closed escrow on that property last May and have been working on the place every weekend since then. I’ve been a prepper since I was a kid, but I didn’t seriously start thinking about a bugout location until about 12 years ago when I read one of JWR’s books. Prior to reading that book I lived in the Midwest near New Madrid. [Anticipating an earthquake that might make my house uninhabitable,] I kept sufficient survival supplies in the garage to survive for a month living in my backyard.” – Greg X.
Five steps to improve your shooting – “Shooting is a skill, and like any skill, it takes training and practice. The idea that you can just pick up a gun and shoot someone in their X-ring, without considerable time on the range, is an invention of Hollywood, just like fast draw gunslingers meeting at high noon on main street in the Old West. The big problem with using guns for self-defense, is that the adrenalin running through your bloodstream during such a life-threatening situation is going to play havoc with your shooting ability.” – Bill White
