FATF Crashes Stock Market again!

Nothing to see here folks...

This happened during FATF week in Paris: an orgy of international asset-forfeiture plunder planning! (Source: S&P 500)

The market began wobbling February 16, then crashed violently on February 20, the day the Communist News Network began screeching and wailing about a not-really communist virus outbreak near a germ lab. So what else was happening on those days in places like… Paris? Here’s a taste: 

“FATF Week, 16-21 February 2020. On Sunday 16 February, more than 800 representatives from 205 countries and jurisdictions around the world, the IMF, UN, World Bank and other organisations, will arrive for FATF Week in Paris, France…”(link)

So what is FATF? It is the Harry Anslinger-Herbert Hoover-Richard Nixon-Bush-Bush asset-forfeiture Crash and Great Depression machine. Remember Milton Friedman in Free to Choose? In a fractional-reserve banking system, the money you deposit exists in several places as the clearing-houses compensate the instruments of money transfer. Finally it is loaned out at interest, so a lot of it is no longer at the bank.

So when federal agents with guns and blanket John Doe or Unnamed Asset warrants shove their way inside to grab cash and securities, other depositors can see the liquidity crunch coming and withdraw their assets. This reverses the leveraging of assets which–absent tax and prohibition raids–increases the money supply. The reversing result is mass bankruptcies and devaluation of assets.

Here’s what went on in Paris just before the crash: (link) Sound farfetched? Read their glossary: 

The term confiscation, which includes forfeiture where applicable, means the permanent deprivation of funds or other assets by order of a competent authority or a court. Confiscation or forfeiture takes place through a judicial or administrative procedure that transfers the ownership of specified funds or other assets to be transferred to the State. In this case, the person(s) or entity(ies) that held an interest in the specified funds or other assets at the time of the confiscation or forfeiture loses all rights, in principle, to the confiscated or forfeited funds or other assets. 

FATF was formed as soon as the Reagan-Bush-Biden prohibitionist asset-forfeiture crash deepened into a really bad recession with stock losses and unemployment. They admit this: 

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is an inter-governmental body established in 1989 by the Ministers of its Member jurisdictions. The mandate of the FATF is to set standards and to promote effective implementation of legal, regulatory and operational measures for combating money laundering, terrorist financing and the financing of proliferation, and other related threats to the integrity of the international financial system. In collaboration with other international stakeholders, the FATF also works to identify national-level vulnerabilities with the aim of protecting the international financial system from misuse.

Pretty shadowy and swampy, huh? And if this thing does wreck economies, who can be held accountable? Who would admit the obvious facts? How would you claim damages?

This sort of thing also happened in 1907, mainly due to new federal regulation of food & drugs and State bans on Beelzebubba’s Beer and The Demon Rum. It happened again in 1921, but was covered up by nullification, then returned with a vengeance in 1929, after Mabel Willebrandt explained, that August, what was going on on “The Inside of Prohibition,” in 20 national papers. Accelerating stock depreciation set in and investors dumped assets…

The banking panics of the Great Depression kept pace with federal indictments of yeast and glucose companies and confiscation of assets plus heavy fines measured in pounds of gold bullion–while the Coast Guard and Customs seized huge shipments of heroin that was steadily replacing beer. The federal government feigns bovine incomprehension of all this causality. 

Government spin-doctors also disavow any knowledge that the Reagan-Bush-Biden asset-forfeiture craze of 1987 had anything to do with that recession, and play dumb in sworn testimony and thick reports on the Flash Crashes. Here’s the latest one, with “market crash”, “financial collapse”, and “economic recession” nowhere to be seen.(link) Here’s a foretaste of Knife-Your-Customer snitching: 

A. CUSTOMER DUE DILIGENCE AND TIPPING-OFF.
1. If, during the establishment or course of the customer relationship, or when conducting occasional transactions, a financial institution suspects that transactions relate to money laundering or terrorist financing, then the institution should:
  (a) normally seek to identify and verify the identity of the customer and the beneficial owner, whether permanent or occasional, and irrespective of any exemption or any designated threshold that might otherwise apply; and
  (b) make a suspicious transaction report (STR) to the financial intelligence unit (FIU), in accordance with Recommendation 20.
2. Recommendation 21 prohibits financial institutions, their directors, officers and employees from disclosing the fact that an STR or related information is being reported to the FIU. A risk exists that customers could be unintentionally tipped off when the financial institution is seeking to perform its customer due diligence (CDD) obligations in these circumstances. The customer’s awareness of a possible STR or investigation could compromise future efforts to investigate the suspected money laundering or terrorist financing operation.
3. Therefore, if financial institutions form a suspicion that transactions relate to money laundering or terrorist financing, they should take into account the risk of tipping-off when performing the CDD process. If the institution reasonably believes that performing the CDD process will tip-off the customer or potential customer, it may choose not to pursue that process, and should file an STR. Institutions should ensure that their employees are aware of, and sensitive to, these issues when conducting CDD. 

Nice friendly stuff, eh? But hey, what’s another global economic crash compared with a convenient flu outbreak generating fewer fatalities than U.S. auto accidents for the same timeframe? This coming recession could easily eliminate the memory loss that sets in after each new crash and depression is explained away. Libertarian candidates could explain to voters what happens time after time, and I’ll lay odds someone will listen

Ignore it and it'll go away...

What caused the 16 Feb Crash?

Asset-Forfeiture Looting is not Free trade

Asset-forfeiture is the leper’s bell of an approaching looter.

Type S&P 500 and choose the 6 month index. By running the cursor along the peak of the curve you can tell when the slope of the curve turned negative. That date looks like 19FEB2020. CNN expelled a huge smokescreen on China’s Communo-Virus close to then, but CNN is not of a truthful persuasion. The corporation actually PAYS airports to display its screed on waiting area screens, and nobody had more interest in asset-forfeiture looting than Nixon-law subsidized media looters. So who is next on the list of usual suspects? Whose name appeared on the Flash Crashes of 2008, 2010 and 2015?(link)

Yes, I am talking about the Financial Action Task Force currently tasked with looking into corruption in not-really-communist China. And guess what… see those twin troughs just to the left of February 19? The high point just before the fall-where the slope goes from increasing to decreasing–coincides reasonably with issuance of a Swiss report on how Swiss banks have agreed to FATF-approved Knife Your Customer and similar policies. The report was released, I’d wager, on or about February 17, 2020, judging from the stock prices graph. The FATF is very careful to avoid exact dates unless there are no nearby stock gyrations.(link

FATF reports and such are reportedly released in Month, Year, and surrounded with a smokescreen of obfuscating acronyms. The MER on Switzerland was adopted in October 2016 and at the urging of AML/CFT advisors went through R.2 through R.21 with threshold gaps triggering due diligence requirement adjustments and execution of operations in cases of suspicion. Since the same Swiss whose papers debated U.S. newspapers about wholesaling heroin in February of 1929 are today deemed too naíve to write their own laws, the FATF hands elected representatives AMLAs to sign and pass, and scolding CDBs (a looter code of ethical robbery).(link)

FATF does admit that an OBA-FINMA became enforceable with guns on January 1, 2020, and for the ten-thousandth time dins its message that anyone who would rather not be robbed by tax collectors can only be so anti-social if actually practicing or at least abetting the financing of religious terrorists flying hijacked planes into tall buildings in New York.(link) Everywhere you look, logical disjunction is resorted to to deliver this point subliminally. Any declarative statement, even “two plus two makes four” is still true after some dishonest skunk tacks on a disjunction. Two plus two makes four or five is therefore as logically true a statement as it was before tacking on the cognitive mutilation and repeating it a million times–sad, but true.(link

See their pro-coercion brainwashing movie: Not a Victimless Crime

 

So a preference for keeping your own money means–in FATFspeak–you are morally the same as 1912 balkan Mohammedans or Christians kidnapping, raping and murdering each other, and selling the survivors to the highest bidder.(link) By their lights, this makes you OAD FCT according to the GBCF.(link

You can see how this goo, like the language in the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1987-is contrivedly hard to follow or, once grasped, to explain to the innocent. Then again, if your pet policy is guaranteed to wreck the economy that pursues it, clarity is the enemy.

Before the 1929 Crash

Kleptocracy black market is mystical collectivist side effect

Does this look like financial news? Well it is!(link)

 

The Evening Day, New London, Connecticut January 1, 1926, page 4, on which an almost new Ford coupe sells for $175, depicts the breakdown of the Gentlemen’s Agreement between prohibition enforcers and a coalition of bootleggers, bankers, sugar & yeast companies and pharmaceutical enterprises. Many of the larger drug companies were at least partly German, at a time when Germany was still a holdout on passing the equivalent of a Volstead Act designed to ban enjoyable drugs. Here is how German stock and money markets behaved during five years shortly after a reparations crisis had reduced the value of the Papier Mark to its weight in cellulose. What was going on here and in Germany?  Continue reading

YES WE CAN SAY NO!

Country Joe and the Fish Intergalactic Fan Club

It’ll kick in soon, just you wait, it takes time…

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN YOU COULDN’T just say no to violent aggression. In the 1920s mystical fanatics sought to pressure and intimidate voters into having someone point guns at people over beer or plant leaf soakings. This immediately wrecked the economy until gentlemen’s agreements between producers and government agents took effect in early 1923.(link)

But increased penalties soon crashed the economy, and until 1931 there was no way to vote no on having people robbed and shot. If you voted Democratic, that was a vote for low tariffs, but also for debased currency and white supremacist racial collectivism. If you voted Republican, that was a vote for the gold standard, but also for shooting and robbing the peaceful, high excise and income taxes, and helping Germany spend money on armaments rather than pay reparations for damages wrought during The Great War. There were communist-socialist infiltrators and even native brainwashees, of course, offering more prohibition and tax laws and amendments, but nobody offering freedom from coercion.(link)

It was the Liberal Party platform of 1931 that tackled the Eighteenth Amendment head-on and demanded it be repealed along with the Volstead Act, Blue Laws and the ban on Sunday baseball games.(link) Liberals sought to make divorce safe and legal, and were absolutely opposed to Ku-Klux collectivism and Comstock laws. And guess what? There was a Gentleman’s Agreement.(link) Rather than run against those spoiler votes and lose to the Republicans, the Democrats copied the Liberal Party repeal plank into their own platform and won five consecutive presidential elections with nary a Crash nor added Depression wrecking the economy.(link)

So when next a Republican shrieks that Bernie is going to open gulags in North Dakota and Maine unless your vote helps God’s Own Prohibitionists ban contraceptives, shoot more teen-agers, wreck more economies in Latin America, export more fascism and bomb more ignorant wretches on the other side of the planet, remember that YES WE CAN SAY NO.(link)

Democrats no less agitated will grab your cuff with predictions that God’s Own Prohibitionists will grab pussy, ban birth control pills, appoint Klan judges, boil away the polar ice caps and bring yet another Asset-Forfeiture Crash and Depression as in 1929, 1987 and 2008–unless you help them ban electric generation plants, customs inspections, take-home pay and automobiles. Again, YES YOU CAN JUST SAY NO. How? (link)

We wrote the Roe v Wade decision!

A brief history of libertarian spoiler vote clout. Our 4.4 million presidential votes (equal to the State of Virginia) were only about a fifth of the LP votes captured in 2016.

BY VOTING LIBERTARIAN! 

The LP looks for ways to NOT point guns at people. Our non-aggression principle and platform is that simple. Libertarians understand that pointing guns at non-violent citizens is the gateway to massacres, gulags, Kristallnacht, Auschwitz, Treblinka, The Killing Fields, Ukraine famines, People’s Temple suicides, wars, racial strife, collectivist coercion, asset-forfeiture confiscations, Crashes and Great Depressions that lead to unemployment, taxation and more force-initiating laws.

HOCKEY STICK ANYONE?

This graph fits LP presidential votes to the logistic replacement curve that shows how cassettes and CDs replaced vinyl, how elections replaced monarchies.

No our candidates don’t often get elected and begin shouting out orders in the Senate. Instead our candidates make it possible for… YES, YOU to send a clout-packing spoiler-vote message to The Political State Just Saying No to force, intimidation, murder, robbery, parasitism, war, treachery, censorship, rights infringement, girl-bullying, pull-peddling, election rigging, subsidized vote corruption, graft, ugly gimme caps and exportation of destabilizing fascist policies.

Libertarian spoiler votes state this clearly, with no strings, and DEFEAT the more brutal of two looters running for that same office. Over a hundred of our candidates actually hold office, and that scares the crap living daylights out of looters of both wings of the communo-fascist persuasion. 

Suckers and cowards settle for one vote out of 129 million and end up with Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, drug wars, terrorist attacks, maimed veterans, high taxes, dead cops, dead kids, inflation, prohibitionism, Crashes and Depressions. Libertarians pull the slot machine handle on one vote out of 4 million, and get roughly 30 times the law-changing clout for that vote. It takes a special kind of stupid to miss that chance.

That realization is why our vote share–barring idiotic 5th column planks to wreck our platform–increases by about 80% per year right now. With this we bring you legalization, tax cuts, individual rights, peace, choice, freer markets, and the withering away of the initiation of harmful, deadly and coercive force. We replace that force with freedom from coercion, and we accomplish all this one vote at a time.

Pro-life or Anti-life?

Speaking in tongues

Yes, many, many languages…

Anti-Life is a chapter in Ayn Rand’s 1957 best-seller Atlas Shrugged, in fact, it’s the chapter that follows Anti-Greed.

Anti-Greed is foreshadowed as part of a newspaper item so distorted as to upset Hank Rearden’s secretary, but

He laughed aloud. “I can see where such a distortion of the English language would make you furious”

It turns out that Anti-Greed is a chapter about Project X, a weapon that broadcasts death.

PRO-LIFE COP-KILLER

Colorado Clinic Shooter

Conservative altruists still advocate sending men with guns to threaten doctors and coerce pregnant women into back-alley surgery. Impressed by that good example set by elected officials, some superstitious characters did indeed march out and murder unarmed doctors by shooting them in the back, or from outside their windows. This trend began shortly after the LP platform of 1972 demanded and got enforcement of individual rights for women. The latest in the long list or religious conservative assassins was Robert Dear, who is now under indictment on federal counts, several of which invoke capital punishment by a just society.(link) The most recent amendments to infiltrate the LP platform call for letting religious terrorists enter the U.S. uninspected, (a Democratic Party idea) then protecting them from the death sentence (a Republican idea) with taxpayers billed for room and board for life. Those planks are an example of how hostile ideologies are again boring in to make Libertarians look like fools to voters.

These are the people Ayn Rand preferred when she declared voting for the Tonie Nathan-John Hospers LP ticket “immoral.”(link) So what? We all make mistakes–and Tricky Dick wouldn’t wreck the economy for another year yet. At age 67, few of us are at the top of our game, but the ability to learn from mistakes is a valuable skill at which Ayn Rand did not excel. Unlike Nixon’s party, she did advocate individual rights for women. The LP did write the boilerplate the Supreme Court used as its Roe v. Wade decision, blocking race-suicide Dixiecrats from sending men with guns out to cause women bleed to death. When was the last time you heard about that in a Republican publication?

California v. Interpreters

I'm here to make idiots understand concepts

I’m here to deliver a clear and practical meaning.

The People’s State of California, lately a remake of Czechoslovakia under communism, has passed a law against independent freelance interpreters. The “American” Translators Association, ATA–in actuality an Association of Translation Agencies dominated by predators bent on what the California Democrats are ordering at gunpointis exactly the sort of pressure group that brings about these draconian attempts at naked coercion. But why coercion?

Mindless collectives such as People’s State Legislatures and Professional Agency associations float on an ocean of fascism (religious socialism) and communism (not-so-religious socialism). Like Middle Eastern fanatics, they cannot imagine anything BUT the organized initiation of force. The result is that California voters indoctrinated in government schools do not understand how Libertarian spoiler votes repeal bad laws.

Back before communist-organized mass starvation and christian socialist extermination camps revealed the true face of Altruria, fanatical altruist parties saddled America with an income tax and an amendment making beer a shoot-first felony.(link) Those prohibition and socialist parties twice changed the Constitution with force-law spoiler votes averaging about 2% of the national total. Instead of defending the individual rights of interpreters to offer our services by voluntary consent, look at how the ATA grovels in this boilerplate for the California Junta:

Translation and interpreting (T&I) has been called the world’s “second oldest profession.” The accuracy of that statement notwithstanding, it is certainly true that the translating and interpreting profession predates the “gig economy” by several thousand years. The current and effective business model of freelancers working through agencies to provide translation and interpreting services to the ultimate consumers of those services has been in place since at least the end of World War II.

The oldest profession is political whoring–appeals to rob or coerce Carlos to subsidize Maria and Juan. The lessons learned from Soviet and German National Socialism, Pol Pot, Ceausescu and the Right Reverend Jim Jones are as puzzling to the Latin American Junta mentality dominating the California legislature as they are to the governments of Cuba, Venezuela, Indonesia and the Philippine Islands. But where reason makes no impression, fear is the most convertible currency. Spoiler votes enable the little guy to step up to the plate for a little winning by intimidation to get rid of bad laws and lawmakers.(link)

Dokuro-chan, wielder of Spoiler Vote clout!

Libertarian Spoiler votes, increasing 80% per year since 2008

California votes Democratic not because only 1% of its population can write down the definition of energy, or convert Fahrenheit to Centigrade, but because they imagine the only alternative is book-burning Republicans eager to ban birth control, burn Beatles albums and shoot their kids over plant leaves. But the Libertarian party advocates none of those things, and offers full individual rights to women, hippies, brown people, translators & interpreters! Every spoiler vote invested in the Libertarian party goes to cover the gap between some devout Democratic looter and a fanatical Republican Sharia lawyer.(link) Making the worst bastard lose is how the Libertarian party has been changing the laws since 1972, shortly before our plank became the Roe v. Wade decision.(link)

Interpreters, write your California legislooters: 

Dear Comrade/Cumpai (name or handle), until such time as the AB 5 law forcing translators and interpreters to suck up to artificial persons or have their work permits torn up, I will be voting for Libertarian Party candidates. In fact, I’ll even send them a donation to help defeat Democratic and Republican communo-fascist fanatics alike. The libertarian party has been doing this since 1972, and look at how voters have reacted to our success in ridding them of your stye of parasitism:

Yours in Schadenfreude (look it up),

A. Libertarian Interpreter!

The tug from below–spoiler votes!

Partido Obrero de Unificación Marxista

Comrade Eric Arthur Blair–POUM

Civilized men flying overhead were trying to kill George Orwell as he composed some wartime essays, especially The Lion and The Unicorn (link) Every nation in Europe was run by men who deeply believed altruism–as formulated by the mythical Jesus and by Auguste Compte–to be a good thing, not at all causally connected with witch-sniffing, the rack, the guillotine, burning at the stake or book-burning.(link) These things did in fact invariably coincide, the way Crashes and Depressions coincided with making beer a federal felony to justify asset-forfeiture looting.

Bombs fell out of the sky as materialist altruists fought mystical altruists in deadly earnest, each convinced no non-altruist alternative could possibly exist–much like the United States and Brazil today. Orwell, a collectivist, trusted the judgment of the “common man,” from whom the blimps, toffs, dividend-drawers and plutocrats could learn plenty:

The nation is bound together by an invisible chain. At any normal time the ruling class will rob, mismanage, sabotage, lead us into the muck; but let popular opinion really make itself heard, let them get a tug from below that they cannot avoid feeling, and it is difficult for them not to respond. The left-wing writers who denounce the whole of the ruling class as ‘pro-Fascist’ are grossly over-simplifying.(1941)

So what is this tug from below that unavoidably makes itself felt? It is not violent demonstrations, or the Kremlin would be in DC. It is also not lobbying by “non-partisan” single-issue groups. Not only are they castrated by laws ordering them not to influence elections, they have a financial stake in the continued existence of the hobgoblin they pretend to battle against. One clue is in the tug from above: political party platform planks.

Looter politicians avoid mentioning planks. Planks are what people read before donating money.(link) God’s Own Prohibitionist parties–yes there are two–promise to seek a Constitutional Amendment to prohibit birth control and all 3 or 4 communist parties promise to do the same to throttle off access to energy and take-home pay. Fascist partisans vehemently deny ties to religious nationalsocialism just as anti-energy parties cover acres of newsprint convincing voters they are “not really” communist.

Law-changing clout of spoiler votes!

All political change comes from growing party spoiler vote clout–Dokuro Chan

Yet the 16th and 18th Amendments that wrecked the economy came from ku-klux and socialist platform planks, just as all current shibboleths against economic freedom and individual rights come from the exact same places. Parties that seek to divide rights take their cues from religious or materialist totalitarianism. The only party that regards freedom and rights as indivisible is the Libertarian Party. Visit your state or local LP to see what you can do to help. Your spoiler vote returns at least 20 times the change dividend if invested against the Kleptocracy.

LP growth BEFORE the platform sabortage

Before adding 2018 planks to import terrorists and protect them from capital punishment the LP was growing 80% per year. What planks are your state or local LP writing?
