International Monetary Fund: Storm Clouds Of The Next Financial Crisis Are Gathering
This article was written by Mac Slavo and originally published at SHTFplan.com
The International Monetary Fund is sounding the alarms of another global crisis. IMF is warning that the storm clouds are currently gathering for another financial crisis.
According to a report by The Guardian, David Lipton, the first deputy managing director of the IMF, said that “crisis prevention is incomplete” more than a decade on from the last meltdown in the global banking system. Not only that but on an individual basis, people are largely unprepared for a major financial downturn. “As we have put it, ‘fix the roof while the sun shines.’ But like many of you, I see storm clouds building and fear the work on crisis prevention is incomplete,” Lipton said.
Lipton said individual nation states alone would lack the firepower to combat the next recession while calling on governments to work together to tackle the issues that could spark another crash.
“We ought to be concerned about the potency of monetary policy,” he said of the ability of the US Federal Reserve and other central banks to cut interest rates to boost the economy in the event of another downturn, while also warning that high levels of government borrowing constrained their scope for cutting taxes and raising spending. –The Guardian
Lipton said individual nation states alone would lack the firepower to combat the next recession while calling on governments to work together to tackle the issues that could spark another crash. Which is an odd position to take considering the central banks and governments of the world cause recession and economic crises in the first place.
Lipton also went so far as to suggest that the current Chinese trade policies that were once considered “acceptable” when the communist country joined the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001 as a $1 trillion economy may now be inappropriate as it has now effectively become a $16 trillion international superpower.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The IMF would know, since they are part of the banking cabal that is engineering the crash in the first place. Also take note of the IMF’s solution to the problem they helped create – namely that individual nations will have to centralize further and “work together” to stave off the next collapse.

… the whistleblowers – who are former federal criminal investigators, have allegged that the Clinton Foundation was “engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.” We may also hear about revalations of pay-for-play at Thursday’s hearing – as the Obama State Department, headed at the time by Hillary Clinton, authorized $151 billion in Pentagon-brokered deals to 16 countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation – a 145% increase in completed sales…
Russian firearms enthusiast Maria Butina admitted on Wednesday in US District Court in Washington that she conspired with an unnamed American to act at the direction of a Russian official “to establish unofficial lines of communication with Americans having power and influence over U.S. politics…for the benefit of the Russian Federation.”
After initially claiming innocence after her July arrest, the 30-year-old Butina accepted a deal with prosecutors and flipped her plea to guilty – agreeing to work with authorities who accused her of gathering intelligence on American officials as well as conservative political organizations. She has been in jail without bail since her arrest.
The American Butina worked with has been identified as Paul Erickson, a longtime GOP operative based in South Dakota with strong ties to the National Rifle Association and the Russian gun rights community. Erickson, who was in a romantic relationship with Butina, allegedly attempted to establish a backchannel between the NRA and Russian Government – while also reaching out to Trump campaign members Rick Dearborn and then-Senator Jeff Sessions in a 2016 email with the subject “Kremlin connection.” The email sought a meeting between then-candidate Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at an annual NRA convention.
The Trump campaign declined the invitation, however Butina allegedly worked with Erickson to try and arrange a meeting between Trump and her boss, former Russian central banker Alexander Torshin – who is believed to be her handler. …
Following Butina’s arrest, the Russian embassy complained that Butina was being subjected to unwarranted strip searches and denial of proper medical care in an effort to “break her will.” Her defense attorney, Robert Driscoll, claims she has suffered health problems in jail and has been denied proper treatment.

I think we finally found the WMD’s that were used to justify the invasion, destruction and occupation of iraq. They were never in iraq to begin with. How obvious does this have to be?
Maybe I’m just a little too cynical but I seriously doubt it. Between the threats and the bribes and endless legal resources available to the permanent government, butina could see her situation was hopeless if she didn’t cooperate with the agenda, which is fascist globalism under the benevolent guidance of the luciferian central banksters, war with russia and war with the ability of americans to defend themselves from the coming destitute nazi state. All for our own good of course. Just like male genital mutilation. http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2014/02/the-war-on-empathy-love-and-family/
Belgium has joined the list of countries that are rebelling against their elected leadership. Over the weekend the Belgian government fell over Prime Minister Charles Michel’s trip to Morocco to sign the United Nations Migration Agreement. The agreement made no distinction between legal and illegal migrants and regarded immigration as a positive phenomenon. The Belgian people apparently did not agree. Facebook registered 1,200 Belgians agreeing that the Prime Minister was a traitor. Some users expressed concern for their children’s futures, noting that Belgian democracy is dead. Others said they would get yellow vests and join the protests.
The unrest witnessed in a number of places is focused on some specific demands but it represents much broader anger. The French yellow vests initially protested against proposed increases in fuel taxes that would have affected working people dependent on transportation disproportionately. But when that demand was met by the government of President Emmanuel Macron, the demonstrations continued and even grew, suggesting that the grievances with the government were far more extensive than the issue of a single new tax. Perhaps not surprisingly, the French government is seeking for a scapegoat and is investigating “Russian interference.” The US State Department inevitably agrees, claiming that Kremlin directed websites and social media are “amplifying the conflict.”…
If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”—Thomas Jefferson
We are approaching critical mass, the point at which all hell breaks loose. The government is pushing us ever closer to a constitutional crisis. What makes the outlook so much bleaker is the utter ignorance of the American people—and those who represent them—about their freedoms, history, and how the government is supposed to operate….
Symbolism is the universal language of humanity. Contrarily to words, symbols cannot lie. By their very nature, symbols can only be exactly what they are. However, to fully grasp the true meaning of a symbol, one must first acquire the knowledge of what it is intended to mean.
“In a single figure a symbol may both reveal and conceal, for to the wise the subject of the symbol is obvious, while to the ignorant the figure remains inscrutable”. – Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teaching of All Ages
