March 25: The government of Cyprus approves the "new and improved" Cyprus Steal amid reports that the Big Money had already been warned about this bank robbery, and had moved their own money out weeks/months ahead of time. Now our picture is complete. We have our traitor governments planning this bank robbery months in advance and warning the big-money oligarchs so they would not be affected. We have them then staging an "emergency." The TG's then tell us that because of this "emergency" they need to instantly raise a lot of money, and so they don't have time to fairly and systematically "tax" people with some broad, general levy; rather, they "need to" simply seize wealth from a particular group of targeted victims. This time it was stealing money out of bank accounts. Next time it might be confiscating pensions. The blueprint (i.e. script) is now firmly in place:
(Secretly) plan the robbery. Warn the Big Money (so all their wealth is moved to safety). Announce/stage an "emergency." Perpetrate the theft.
The criminality of the West's traitor governments is now a matter of record. Their written confessions are contained in official, public documents. The question then becomes: What will be the response of the Sheep -- i.e. the pseudo-citizens of these regimes? Will they simply sit back and submit to a "taxation regime" that has now abandoned even the pretense of legitimacy? If the answer to that question is "yes" then one can only conclude the Sheep deserve to be robbed. They elect these traitor governments. They continue snoozing when the politicians publicly announce they plan on openly stealing from them. They allow themselves to be robbed. You can't help victims who refuse to help themselves. What about the rest of us, the remaining citizens of these once-legitimate regimes? We have no choice but to protect ourselves -- not with guns, but with our brains. With first "MF Global" and now the Cyprus Steal we have incontrovertible proof that no paper asset is safe in the West. Period. We must therefore divest ourselves of as much paper as possible, with "physical" gold and silver bullion being the best/safest option. Do not pump every last penny of your wealth into our "bubble" real-estate markets. They are all doomed to suffer major crashes. Obviously, we will receive no further "warnings" from our governments.
