What Cyprus proves is.. the Governments and Banks of the world don't give a Sh** about the people. They are all above the law and lie, steal and cheat everyone out of their money. They want to make the people poor and dependent upon them. They will live their high life and spend money as they want and give themselves huge bonuses, because they know if they have to.. they can just simply steal everyone's money out of the bank.
The people of Cyprus are locked out of their accounts and there is no guarantee they will be able to get any money out tomorrow, when the banks are suppose to reopen. (update - the parliament is now delaying meeting yet another day to vote on the stealing of the money, so the banks will not open tomorrow after all.)
The situation around the world has been bad since 2008 and they have put bandages on it to cover the wounds up. But those bandages are loosing up and about to fall off and reality of how large the wounds have gotten over the years will be in full view. The desperation of the banks from their loose monetary policies is becoming so apparent that they are now willing to openly steal from the people.
We had MF Global and PF Global, besides Lehman and Bear Stearns here in the U.S. The people were blindsided with each one.
People don't realize it, but we have had our Cyprus events here in the U.S. already. The government and courts were involved with the not so obvious stealing of people's money and metals.
The courts have already ruled that deposits in the banks are not guaranteed to the people.
Besides that the Federal Reserve has implemented a policy that all money in banks and other investments can be frozen if the need arises.
the Federal Reserve also implemented a new policy for money market funds held by financial institutions. Per the new policy, money market funds, which account for some $2.7 trillion in deposits across the United States, can be frozen in the event of an emergency or financial panic. This means that if and when the system does go into a tailspin, at exactly the time people will want to pull their money out of their bank account, they will be restricted from doing so.
This event in Cyprus may wake some of those who are slumbering up, I am sure in Cyprus it is doing that.
They had promised the people over the last month, they would never take money from people's accounts in the bank. I have read that over and over again in comments on Cyprus news sites.
The Eurozone controllers demanded Cyprus steal the people's money directly out of their accounts for the debts of the bank. The people have worked hard and they already pay outrageous taxes and they have the highest utility charges in the world. I have been reading how they are charged 500+ Euros per month for very little electricity used. The IMF and Euro managers have even mentioned possibly doing something like the Cyprus stealing in Italy if necessary.
Are they so seriously deranged, sociopaths and psychopaths now... they aren't even considering that people will fight back? Are they so stupid that they don't realize people may get ahead of their legal stealing and take their money out of their accounts? They want to save banks? Well if people are smart and waking up they are going to rush to their bank and get all their money out. I would imagine there will be bank runs in Europe, especially in Greece and Italy. I can only hope they are smart and bank runs start. The banks and governments may have just put their nail into their coffins. They are being shown they can not be trusted for one second. They will tell you one thing and then turn around and do another.
If anyone of us, stole even a dollar out of someone else's account, we would be charged with a Federal crime. Yet the privately owned banks can literally steal billions out of people's individual accounts and it is all sanctioned by the governments.
They are Private banks that gambled away money and loss! It is just as if we had gone to a casino and gambled money ourselves and loss. We can't expect the government to come and steal from the person sitting next to us to cover our losses. We have to suffer. Yet, banks can gamble in derivatives and everything else and the governments will always make sure they recover their losses either by printing or by just saying to the people... "Give the bank your money."
Needless to say Zerohedge is all over the Cyprus stealing and I highly advice people to read what the articles they are putting out about it all.
People need to remember if they believe their money is safe in stocks, that is not true. I posted a year ago about how stocks are actually owned by the Federal Reserve through a broker. All stocks are put in one name and it is not the person who purchased them.
Literally the only place money is safe now is, in your own hands or in gold and silver as an investment and insurance against inflation.
I hope people in the U.S. are paying attention. There has been discussions about using people's retirement money for government bonds here. So that will be a sanctioned stealing of people's money by saying it is for 'the people's protection.'
If you notice the big MSM sites don't even have the Cyprus situation as big news, it is only small blurbs on their pages of distraction news.
Here is my message to all the Banks.
It is time for people to wake up and if they don't do it now, will they do it when all their money is stolen by the government and banks out of their own accounts? When their retirement money is gone and literally any money saved is stolen for the "good of the country and banking system?"
Is it any wonder DHS is buying 2700 armored vehicles for the U.S and have purchased 2 billion rounds of ammo. Is this for the day the government allows the banks to keep all deposits, retirement, stocks, safety deposit boxes contents and every other investment the people have for the 'good of the banking system?'
May the bank runs begin and the Fiat money system is crashed around the world!
Update 3/19/13 - New Zealand is putting the plans in place to be able to do as Cyprus, Steal people's money overnight.
