I don’t know if you can actually put a moment on it. I had been researching beyond the mainstream gatekeepers since 2011 when I finally followed up on a friend’s question, “Have you watched ‘Loose Change 911′?
After that, I read a Doug Casey book as a joke to myself and some of what he said actually stuck.
Looking things up and watching YouTube videos led to me subscribing to YouTube videos. What I found on YouTube was so compelling that I couldn’t get enough… an unfiltered, self-directed learning platform where you can find experts on any subject, reporting out of their own drive to share the truth and interact with others.
After a while I started to follow news topics and events on my favorite YouTube channels as much as I followed everyday mainstream outlets so that I was able to compare the two.
I was bemused to find that the mainstream media and alternative media’s reports on topics and events were sometimes totally opposite.
After hearing about a book called Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and the previous The Big Short I had started to become skeptical of mainstream media’s take on current events, especially since the 2008 economic shakeup that eventually led to my own layoff.
It was the expatiated FED meeting in Washington D.C. in April 2016 when my understanding switched.
That moment was when the red pill hit me.
I became fully aware that the media was controlled, or colluding, because that entire weekend and that entire day, not a word was mentioned about it on any mainstream site. Only around 8pm did NPR include a brief mention of it in their hourly news update, and said nothing of substance about it or mention it’s historic nature.
I don’t know what happened at that meeting because it’s all kept secret, but one thing was clear, the alternative media was reporting about it as soon as it was announced and the mainstream media didn’t mention it until after it was over, and they didn’t give any details about it.
That was a day that changed my life. That was the day that I decided to leave D.C. and commit to learning and spreading the truth.
Below are links to blog stories about that day.
Emergency at the Fed?
Mike Maloney released yesterday some interesting analysis of this week’s Federal Reserve activity and is hypothesising that something ominous may be occurring behind closed doors.
On Monday of this week, the Federal Reserve Board of Governors held an impromptu meeting using expedited (some use the vernacular “emergency”) procedures. The purpose was to discuss monetary policy. Thereafter, Chairwoman Yellen visited the President at the White House for another irregular meeting. Interestingly, both meetings were closed door in nature and passed largely under the mainstream media radar.
A google search of the Yellen-Obama meeting produces many largely identical articles containing what Mike refers to as “fluff”; meaning simply that they lack substances and convey only the simple idea that the two discussed the economy.
What the White House meeting overshadowed was the actual Federal Reserve Board of Governors meeting on the 11th, held under expedited procedures as indicated on the Fed’s website above. The purpose of that meeting was stipulated as being to review and determine advance and discount rates to be charged by the Federal Reserve Banks – or in other words, set monetary policy. The press always reports on these meetings. As indicated on the Federal Reserve’s website, this meeting was scheduled last Thursday, April 7th. Again however, an attempt to google this board meeting largely produces results about the White House meeting. Googling “Fed Governor Meeting” produces largely results about the April 6th Federal Reserve Board of Governors meeting and notably, more information about the White House meeting again. As a consequence, we do not know what was said at these meetings – in particular the board meeting of the 11th. One thing that is known however is that the invocation of “expedited procedures” is unusual.
Moving over to the White House website one can find a one paragraph press release pictured below. The release generically describes the Yellen-Obama meeting to be about “near and long-term growth outlook, the state of the labour market, inequality and potential risks to the economy” which seems to be the only information that the press has reported on.

WHAT’S UP WITH THAT EMERGENCY FED MEETING?
Joseph P. Farrell April 17, 2016
You probably heard that last week, President Obama and Vice-President Biden met with Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen behind closed doors. That fact alone should have raised eyebrows and for those in-the-know it probably did, for as a matter of normal security protocols, meetings or appearances both of the President and Vice-President in one place and at the same time are strictly limited for security purposes. From this one fact alone one may deduce that the meeting was about “serious matters” but the question is: what exactly?
A number of regular readers here have shared various articles addressing this various question, and thus I share them with the wider readership here for your consideration.
First of all, there is the admission of Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo to having comitted some deep financial “improprieties”:
Here are the two admissions of fact in a nutshell:
What in the World is Going on with Banks this Week? Emergency Meetings, Banker Summits, Crashing European Banks, and the Worst Bank Reports Since the Great Recession
Just about every major banker and finance minister in the world is meeting in Washington, DC, this week, following two rushed, secretive meetings of the Federal Reserve and another instantaneous and rare meeting between the Fed Chair and the president of the United States. These and other emergency bank meetings around the world cause one to wonder what is going down. Let’s start with a bullet list of the week’s big-bank events:
- The Federal Reserve Board of Governors just held an “expedited special meeting” on Monday in closed-door session.
- The White House made an immediate announcement that the president was going to meet with Fed Chair Janet Yellen right after Monday’s special meeting and that Vice President Biden would be joining them.
- The Federal Reserve very shortly posted an announcement of another expedited closed-door meeting for Tuesday for the specific purpose of “bank supervision.”
- A G-20 meeting of finance ministers and central-bank heads starts in Washington, DC, on Tuesday, too, and continues through Wednesday.
- Then on Thursday the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund meet in Washington.
- The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta just revised US GDP growth for the first quarter to the precipice of recession at 0.1%.
- US banks are widely expected this week to report their worst quarter financially since the start of the Great Recession.
- The European Union’s new “bail-in” procedures for failing banks were employed for the first time with Austrian bank Heta Asset Resolution AG.
- Italy’s minister of finance called an emergency meeting of Italian bankers to engage “last resort” measures for dealing with 360-billion euros of bad loans in banks that have only 50 billion in capital.
