ITALY is set to hold a referendum on parliamentary reform which could become a poll on the EU in the wake of the UK's Brexit decision.
The autumn vote is about major constitutional change to Rome's notoriously slow and costly system of government.
But pro-EU Premier Matteo Renzi has staked his political future on the outcome and will stand down if his proposals are defeated.
This has been seized upon by opposition parties who want away from Brussels and, with Brexit bring bringing pro or anti-Europe sentiment into focus, are gaining support and preparing for a fight.
And if enough anti-EU protest voters are mobilised to outnumber those who back the prime minister's reform laws he will be forced to pack his bags.
Mr Renzi insists the referendum is not comparable to the UK referendum and is confident of success.
He said: "I don't believe it will be the same thing. The UK held a referendum on Europe, and in my opinion the EU was blamed for everything that failed to happen.
"The Italian referendum is something else - we've been saying for 30 years constitutional reforms are needed because we have the largest and costliest parliament in the world, and I will do everything in my power to make sure the constitutional reform law is voted on its merits."

I have always asserted that in the end of this global chess game of manipulation of the gold and silver markets, that the Road to Roota Theory would be the closest thing to the actual TRUTH about the reasons, strategies and tools used to run the fiat monetary system. In the beginning (Jan 2007) everyone said I was crazy. There was no way that the Federal Reserve was creating more and more unbacked fiat money on purpose to destroy the monetary system and those who are in charge of it behind the scenes.
All my doubters have long since gone silent as we get closer and closer to the END of this game.
This analysis of the latest Economist Magazine Cover is constructed as seen from the Road to Roota angle so it's important that you brush up on what the Road to Roota Theory is all about and what Alan Greenspan's overall agenda is. Here are the articles that you should be familiar with...
The Road to Roota Theory
Greenspan's Golden Secret
Greenspan's Golden Testimony
Now let's move onto the latest cover on the Economist's Annual Magazine called "The World In 2016".
A few facts you should be aware of:
- This is not their weekly Economist Magazine publication but rather a Special Edition they do before the beginning of each new year.
- This is the 30th year it is being published.
- Last year's publication caused quite a controversy as it seems to have predicted the Paris Terrorists Attacks thus making people think it was pre-planned and orchestrated by a group other than the identified terrorists.(which of course it was!)
- Like the 2015 artwork, the 2016 cover is only represented partially as reproduced on the cover. Only the left side of both full pictures were put on the covers with the full artwork reproduced inside the magazine.
- In both years it seems the more controversial items are placed on the right side of the picture and not presented on the cover of the magazine.
In my analysis I will be discussing items that are relevant to the Road to Roota Theory and leaving out other items and issues that they are clearly trying to present a message but not one that is too relevant to the Road to Roota Theory. Time permitting I will release a second analysis where I discuss other issues.
Above is the cover of the magazine that you will see sold to the public with the left side of the artwork only presented. Below is the full piece that can be found on page 15 of the magazine...
CRAZY STUFF!! There is so much hidden meaning here it's hard to know where to start. For the purpose of this article I will start at the heart of the Road to Roota Theory - that Alan Greenspan IS Roota and there he is on the right side - the "Conspiracy Side" of the artwork...
Here's my take on what is being said in this section and where it will lead us in 2016.
- First of all, out of all the people pictured he is one of the few cartooned people and in color.
- Judging by his facial expression he's clearly not happy with something in this picture OR, and more likely, the BAD GUYS are not happy with what he has done and portrayed him as a bitter fading old man. Could go either way.
- Below him are 4 magazines with dates corresponding to significant years in his attempts at taking down the system.
1) 1987 - Just a few months after his appointment as the Fed Chair the market suffered one of the worst crashes in history "The Crash of 1987." Many analysts found that the ultimate cause of crash was triggered by automatic stop loss orders that were triggered in the computer trading models that had just been introduced to the markets. Yes, Greenspan did trigger the crash with his computer programs.
2) 1993 - In Greenspan's first attempts at flooding the system with "easy money" he kept lowering interest rates until they rates bottomed in late 1993 giving way to the Bond Collapse in 1994. Greenspan even suggested selling gold on May 18, 1993 Fed Meeting to "break the thermometer"...
Greenspan Suggested Gold Price Suppression in 1993
"I have one other issue I'd like to throw on the table. I hesitate to do it, but let me tell you some of the issues that are involved here. If we are dealing with psychology, then the thermometers one uses to measure it have an effect. I was raising the question on the side with Governor Mullins of what would happen if the Treasury sold a little gold in this market. There's an interesting question here because if the gold price broke in that context, the thermometer would not be just a measuring tool. It would basically affect the underlying psychology."
3) 2000 - Again Greenspan's easy monetary policies greatly contributed to the MASSIVE dot-com bubble that blew up in March of 2000. Greenspan's response was to even further lower interest rates and flood the system with even more money.
"The most notable actions taken during Greenspan's tenure as chairman began in 2000. He raised interest rates several times in 2000 which was likely this cause of the bursting of the dot-com bubble.
4) 2006 - Greenspan officially retired as Fed Chairman in 2006 and had President Bush appoint Ben Bernanke to the position who promised to flood the system with even more money.
Those are the 4 dates on the magazines but it is the date right above these magazines that is the most important - 2008. It was in 2008 that the entire system almost shut down. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson had to literally beg Congress for $700B to bailout the banks. Many attributed the crash to the lack of derivative regulations that Greenspan had fought for...and they were right. The other contributor was the housing bubble that Greenspan created by keeping interest rates too low for too long (note: in Greenspan's missing graduate thesis an entire section was dedicated to blowing up a housing bubble and then having it pop).
Looking At Greenspan's Long Lost Thesis
"We were tickled to find that the work's introduction includes a discussion of soaring housing prices and their effect on consumer spending; it even anticipates a bursting housing bubble. Writes Greenspan: "There is no perpetual motion machine which generates an ever-rising path for the prices of homes."
He was trying to blow the bubble so big that there was no other choice but to crash everything.
Unfortunately, the banksers won that fight and were given a bailout in 2008 to save the system. In retrospect, most people in the United States have come to believe this was huge mistake as the banksters seem to have gotten away with everything as not one of them went to jail.
Now look at that "slot machine" in front of Greenspan as represented on the full artwork. It is clearly being turned once again as the lever is 1/2 way down and the 8 is clearly shifting down. I'm not sure but the 3rd digit looks like an apple with a bite out of it...could it represent New York City (the Big Apple) where Wall Street takes the brunt of a large financial meltdown?
My final analysis is that the slot machine is a representation of Greenspan's computer programs and the take down of the banking system is already in progress only to culminate in 2016. There is no other reason to put Alan Greenspan in the middle of this Illuminati-ish artwork as Greenspan has been out of the mainstream for 10 years and he is NOT even talked about in the magazine articles in the hard copy or in the digital copies. Not a word where as most of the rest of the people (at least on the left side of the artwork) are discussed and addressed in the publication.
There are those who read the slot machine as turning to 2018 which is the planned year for the Bad Guys to implement their "One World Currency" according to the Economist 1988 Cover but I'm not too sure as they clearly tried to block out the "1" before the 8. I guess time will tell.
And the baby reaching for the world below it all...perfect analogy of how the Bad Guys believe that the people CANNOT take care of themselves. They believe themselves to be our parents that will make all the large decisions for the child.
MY TAKE: WE ARE NOT CHILDREN ANYMORE AND HAVE THE RIGHT TO EXERCISE OUR FREE WILL TO CONSTRUCT OUR OWN FUTURE!
Now let's take a look at some of the other potential meanings and symbols in this magazine. I put together a collage of pictures that I got from the specific articles in the magazine as they are easier to see then the small representations on the large picture.
Flying Cell Phone - At first I had no idea what this was but I found a better picture inside the magazine in an article about peer-to-peer transactions growing rapidly in 2016. Sounds GREAT for the Price of Bitcoin if you ask me as the phone is clearly moving upward at great speed with a Superman cape!! There is even an article written by "The Wicked Witch" Blythe Masters touting the technology - don't freak out. She shouldn't scare anyone anymore as she turned down a huge job at Barclay's just to get in the crypto game...but let's still keep a close eye on her as she may be going to jail after the crash!
Hippee on a Bike - I thought there was a lot here but upon further inspection I think it's just another example of a peer-to-peer wallet in use. Or maybe a warning to anyone trying to use peer-to-peer for illegal purposes like drugs. The message is:
"LDL" = Long Distance Lover
"VIENMO" = Payment sharing program
On the phone it says "DUMB PHONE" and there is a skull on his bag.
Not going to read too much into it here as it was on the left side of the artwork.
Same goes for the next two pictures (artificial reality glasses and the brains in a jar) as they are related to the articles in the magazine and on the left side of the artwork.
The Gold Coin on a Parachute - Here we have an obvious but HUGE message being sent for what's about to happen in 2016. At first I thought it was a random gold coin attached to a fiat money parachute but upon closer inspection it is a Gold Euro Coin attached to a Paper Euro Parachute which tells me there is some kind of Gold Backing going to be placed on the current unbacked Euro. That's big stuff as the Euro is clearly struggling today but if they did some kind of Gold backing then it would instantly become the strongest currency on EARTH...
And that would totally and completely DEVALUE the unbacked US Dollar!
Will it happen? Who knows but it is one of the many things on the table for 2016.
And what about this...
On the cover it is Angela Merkel front and center wearing a GOLD SHIRT and Germany holds the second largest gold hoard in the world behind the USA!! Will Germany try to keep the Euro alive by backing it in some way with their gold?(with parachute strings attached?) Also look at the huge chunk of gold represented in the picture above! Will all the hidden gold come into mainstream knowledge in 2016?
Maybe this is what Obama's Staff was freaking out about when Germany wanted it's gold back! Watch Obama and Larry Summers kick the press out of the Oval Office so they can beg for more time(7:15 into the segment)...
Here was my original analysis...
Gold Panic in the Oval Office
Panic in the White House - Part2
Time will tell what happens next.
A Euro Gold backing would be a HUGE move and send (purposefully) the US Dollar tumbling, gold skyrocketing(taking silver along for the ride) and set off the Derivative "Weapon of Mass Financial Destruction" for any trader long the Dollar and short the Euro in 2016!!!
WAIT! SPEAKING OF SILVER...
Don't know what to make of this sign but it is the only silver object in the entire picture. Could it actually say...
"FREEDOM FOR SILVER!"
I may just be me reading something I WANT to see into the picture...but maybe not. Sure looks to me like Chris Duane is holding up that sign! :)
That's all I have for now but obviously there is much, much more to this cover and I will be refining this article with updates throughout the new year.
Things to think about:
1) Clearly Hillery Clinton is the "Bad Guys" choice for US President as she is the only candidate in the picture.(note the gold on her earring as she is hiding BILLIONS in secret funds off shore!)
2) Why is Bill Clinton featured so prominently on the artwork and in color. Clearly something is planned for Bill to come out of the shadows...which is never a good thing!
3) All the people on the left of the picture have clear reasons for being there as the articles in the magazine addressing them in 2016 - the people on the right are ALL there for symbolic reasons.
and there are a million more mysteries to solve in this photo!
Have fun trying to figure out why they are there. I will post Part 2 when I get more things figured out. Send me your guesses at firstname.lastname@example.org
BEFORE I FINISH THERE IS ONE MORE THING THAT DOES NOT LOOK GOOD FOR OUR BATTLES GOING FORWARD
Look what I found on the inside of the magazine...
So much for a peaceful transition.
May the Road you choose be the Right Road.

On the surface, things seem pretty quiet in mid-July 2016. The biggest news stories are about the speculation surrounding Donald Trump’s choice of running mate, the stock market in the U.S. keeps setting new all-time record highs, and the media seems completely obsessed with Taylor Swift’s love life. But underneath the surface, it is a very different story. As you will see below, the conditions for a “perfect storm” are coming together very rapidly, and the rest of 2016 promises to be much more chaotic than what we have seen so far.
Let’s start with China. On Tuesday, an international tribunal in the Hague ruled against China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea. The Chinese government announced ahead of time that they do not recognize the jurisdiction of the tribunal, and they have absolutely no intention of abiding by the ruling. In fact, China is becoming even more defiant in the aftermath of this ruling. We aren’t hearing much about it in the U.S. media, but according to international news reports Chinese president Xi Jinping has ordered the People’s Liberation Army “to prepare for combat” with the United States if the Obama administration presses China to abandon the islands that they are currently occupying in the South China Sea…
“Chinese president Xi Jinping has reportedly ordered the People’s Liberation Army to prepare for combat,” reports Arirang.com. “U.S.-based Boxun News said Tuesday that the instruction was given in case the United States takes provocative action in the waters once the ruling is made.”A U.S. aircraft carrier and fighter jets were already sent to the region in anticipation of the ruling, with the Chinese Navy also carrying out exercises near the disputed Paracel islands.Last October, China said it was “not frightened” to fight a warwith the U.S. following an incident where the guided-missile destroyer USS Lassen violated the 12-nautical mile zone China claims around Subi and Mischief reefs in the Spratly archipelago.
Meanwhile, the relationship between the United States and Russia continues to go from bad to worse. The installation of a missile defense system in Romania is just the latest incident that has the Russians absolutely steaming, and during a public appearance on June 17th Russian President Vladimir Putin tried to get western reporters to understand that the world is being pulled toward war…
“We know year by year what’s going to happen, and they know that we know. It’s only you that they tell tall tales to, and you buy it, and spread it to the citizens of your countries. You people in turn do not feel a sense of the impending danger – this is what worries me. How do you not understand that the world is being pulled in an irreversible direction? While they pretend that nothing is going on. I don’t know how to get through to you anymore.”
And of course the Russians have been feverishly updating and modernizing their military in preparation for a potential future conflict with the United States. Just today we learned that the Russians are working to develop a hypersonic strategic bomber that is going to have the capability of striking targets with nuclear warheads from outer space.
Unfortunately, the Obama administration does not feel a similar sense of urgency. The size of our strategic nuclear arsenal has declined by about 95 percent since the peak of the Cold War, and many of our installations are still actually using rotary phones and the kind of 8 inch floppy disks for computers that were widely used back in the 1970s.
But I don’t expect war with China or Russia to erupt by the end of 2016. Of much more immediate concern is what is going on in the Middle East. The situation in Syria continues to deteriorate, but it is Israel that could soon be the center of attention.
Back in March, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Obama administration wanted to revive the peace process in the Middle East before Obama left office, and that a UN Security Council resolution that would divide the land of Israel and set the parameters for a Palestinian state was still definitely on the table…
The White House is working on plans for reviving long-stalled Middle East negotiations before President Barack Obama leaves office, including a possible United Nations Security Council resolution that would outline steps toward a deal between the Israelis and Palestinians, according to senior U.S. officials.
And just this week, the Washington Post reported that there were renewed “rumblings” about just such a resolution…
Israel is facing a restive European Union, which is backing a French initiative that seeks to outline a future peace deal by year’s end that would probably include a call for the withdrawal of Israeli troops and the creation of a Palestinian state. There are also rumblings that the U.N. Security Council might again hear resolutions about the conflict.
For years, Barack Obama has stressed the need for a Palestinian state, and now that his second term is drawing to a close he certainly realizes that this is his last chance to take action at the United Nations. If he is going to pull the trigger and support a UN resolution formally establishing a Palestinian state, it will almost certainly happen before the election in November. So over the coming months we will be watching these developments very carefully.
And it is interesting to note that there is an organization called “Americans For Peace Now” that is collecting signatures and strongly urging Obama to support a UN resolution of this nature. The following comes from their official website…
Now is the time for real leadership that can revive and re-accredit the two-state solution as President Obama enters his final months in office. And he can do this – he can lay the groundwork for a two-state agreement in the future by supporting an Israeli-Palestinian two-state resolution in the United Nations Security Council.Such a resolution would restore U.S. leadership in the Israeli-Palestinian arena. It would preserve the now-foundering two-state outcome. And it would be a gift to the next president, leaving her or him constructive options for consequential actions in the Israeli-Palestinian arena, in place of the ever-worsening, politically stalemated status quo there is today.
Sadly, a UN resolution that divides the land of Israel and that formally establishes a Palestinian state would not bring lasting peace. Instead, it would be the biggest mistake of the Obama era, and it would set the stage for a major war between Israel and her neighbors. This is something that I discussed during a recent televised appearance down at Morningside that you can watch right here…
At the same time all of this is going on, the global economic crisis continues to escalate. Even though U.S. financial markets are in great shape at the moment, the same cannot be said for much of the rest of the world.
Just look at the country that is hosting the Olympics this summer. Brazil is mired in the worst economic downturn that it has seen since the Great Depression of the 1930s, and Rio de Janeiro’s governor has declared “a state of financial emergency“.
Next door, the Venezuelan economy has completely collapsed, and some people have become so desperate that they are actually hunting cats, dogs and pigeons for food.
Elsewhere, China is experiencing the worst economic downturn that they have seen in decades, the Japanese are still trying to find the end of their “lost decade”, and the banking crisis in Europe is getting worse with each passing month.
In quite a few articles recently, I have discussed the ongoing implosion of the biggest and most important bank in Germany. But I am certainly not the only one warning about this. In one of his recent articles, Simon Black also commented on the turmoil at “the most dangerous bank in Europe”…
Well-capitalized banks are supposed to have double-digit capital levels while making low risk investments.Deutsche Bank, on the other hand, has a capital level of less that 3% (just like Lehman), and an incredibly risky asset base that boasts notional derivatives exposure of more than $70 trillion, roughly the size of world GDP.
But of course Deutsche Bank isn’t getting a lot of attention from the mainstream media right now because of the stunning meltdown of banks in Italy, Spain and Greece. Here is more from Simon Black…
Italian banks are sitting on over 360 billion euros in bad loans right now and are in desperate need of a massive bailout.IMF calculations show that Italian banks’ capital levels are among the lowest in the world, just ahead of Bangladesh.And this doesn’t even scratch the surface of problems in other banking jurisdictions.Spanish banks have been scrambling to raise billions in capital to cover persistent losses that still haven’t healed from the last crisis.In Greece, over 35% of all loans in the banking system are classified as “non-performing”.
Even though U.S. stocks are doing well for the moment, the truth is that trillions of dollars of stock market wealth has been lost globally since this time last year. If you are not familiar with what has been going on around the rest of the planet, this may come as a surprise to you. During my recent appearance at Morningside, I shared some very startling charts which show how dramatically global markets have shifted over the past 12 months. You can view the segment in which I shared these charts right here…
I would really like it if the rest of 2016 was as quiet and peaceful as the past couple of days have been.
Unfortunately, I don’t believe that is going to be the case at all.
The storm clouds are rising and the conditions for a “perfect storm” are brewing. Sadly, most people are not going to understand what is happening until it is far too late.
