Hungary Serbia Border Fence The Dollar Vigilante Shemitah Jeff Berwick 2

When we first released our video, Shemitah Exposed on July 14th we said that we expected major crisis events to begin and possibly right on the exact Shemitah end-date of September 13th (today, as of this writing).  We mentioned that the last two major stock market collapses happened on the end-date of the Shemitah in 2008 and 2001 and also stated that since this Shemitah end-date was on a Sunday that no financial market collapse would happen on the 13th but that something would likely happen if the pattern continued.  In the meantime, over 20 stock markets have collapsed including China and the Dow had its biggest intraday point drop of over 1,100 points since.

I made my initial call about Shemitah economic and socio-political chaos in mid-July. But, today is the last day of the Shemitah – the end-day – and something major just happened: The Eurozone basically collapsed.

The day started fairly quietly.  But within hours reports of border closings were being reported throughout Europe.  And it’s not just Europe (as we’ll discuss below). Please note, Eurocrats didn’t HAVE to make these changes today.

Why September 13th? Because it’s a Sunday? Or because it’s the Shemitah end-day?

It began brewing in the last few weeks.  Hungary began closing its borders in the last few weeks (after only having re-opened them in May 1989 marking the beginning of the end of the Cold War).  And, France began to step up checks near its Italian border, Denmark closed their border with Germany last week and Austrian police began mounting operations on roads from Hungary.

And then today, Germany has closed its borders to Austria.

Within hours, the Czech Republic announced border checks on its border with Austria.

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal just released an article, “Migrants Stream Into Hungary as Fence Rises on Serbian Border“.  The fence, which you can see at the top of our article, is being rapidly rolled out on the Hungarian/Serbian border and border controls are expected to be implemented by September 15th.

And we have just received word from sources on the ground in Italy that, “The Italians already were warned up north in provinces like Bolzano, Friuli and Veneto that the border with Slovenia was going to be closed VERY soon as the border guards were told a LONG time ago.”

And, in northern Europe, Stockholm and Copenhagen traded barbs after the Danish authorities allowed refugees to leave for Sweden without proper documents leading to a possible border crackdown in Sweden.

It’s been quite a day.

The UK’s Guardian just released an article, “Germany border crackdown deals blow to Schengen system.

The article states, “Germany’s decision to re-establish national border controls on its southern frontier with Austria deals a telling blow to two decades of open travel in the 26-nation bloc known as the Schengen area.”

All in one day, the Shemitah end-day in which we said there may be a major crisis/event. And now  it appears the Eurozone and Shengen system of borderless travel is hanging by a thread.

One has to wonder how the European stock markets and the euro currency itself will react on Monday to news that the Eurozone may have dissipated over the weekend.  We’ll find out soon enough and will be watching it closely here.

But, it’s not just in Europe…


In the last week Venezuela closed its borders to Colombia.

And then, again, just today, on September 13th, as we had predicted, there are reports that Thailand has closed its borders to “visa runners” to Cambodia.

Meanwhile, a few weeks ago, Mexico announced it is tightening controls at the American border to stem the tide of “criminals” and a surge of Americans running to Mexico and a major “illegal immigrant” problem of Americans staying as undocumented illegals in Mexico.  All this while Donald Trump stirs up xenophobia in the US to build a wall across the entire continent… a wall that we have always contended, along with Ron Paul, that is designed to eventually keep Americans in.


Meanwhile TDV Immigration, a provider of residency and citizenship opportunities stated, “We’ve seen countries worldwide clamp down on allowing foreigners to get residency and citizenship.  The Dominican Republic has gone from requiring a three year, to four year, then seven and now eight year residency requirement for citizenship and when we asked some of the top lawyers on the island why they responded ‘Due to pressure from the US government’.”

TDV Immigration sources stated, “We’ve seen countries freeze their immigration/naturalization process even in recent months.  The only clients we are currently accepting and having any success with are what you would call the extremely wealthy.  And, we’ve received a flood of millionaire and billionaire clients in the Middle East practically offering any amount of money if we can get them citizenship outside of the Middle East.  Demand has exploded and supply has nearly frozen.”

They continued, “There are still a few options for foreign residency and naturalization available to the non-wealthy but I would advise people to proceed immediately.  It seems like options are quickly running out.”


We have been warning for years this was coming.  And we even picked today’s date as possibly being the beginning of the end of a New World Order technocratic government takeover… one that was exemplified in the Trans-Pacific Partnership as we wrote here.  

As we pointed out in our Shemitah Exposed video, we expected September 13 to mark the beginning, but not the end, of a massive crisis period and eventual collapse of the world order as we know it today.  We’ve reported on capital controls being put in place for years now, not least of which was the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) which has limited the ability of Americans to even open up a bank account outside of the US (although there are still options… but we wouldn’t wait much longer to act… TDV Offshore can help).

We continue to offer a special “Survive Shemitah” package which can give you real-time information, advice and analysis on not only how to survive the coming crises but prosper through them.  In the next issue we’ll be telling subscribers how to get their funds outside of the current financial system and still have access to their funds even if/when bank closures and bail-ins continue.

The New World Order corporate technocracy is being assembled and put in place..

These technocrats know best of course – for you! Increasingly your freedom of movement and your freedom to move money is being challenged…  and eventually it will be shut down. They engineered this “immigration crisis” via unnecessary wars in the Middle East. And now they’re engineering the solution. You can’t say we didn’t warn you.

Shemitah 2015: The silent “fall” heard round the world

For those who think “nothing happened” following the Shemitah’s end on Spetember 13, 2015 …

Technocracy Dollar Vigilante


The announcement of the passing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement (accounting for some 40 percent of the world’s GDP) yesterday marks the amplification of another shattering Shemitah Trend – not well understood but of a profoundly radical nature. Within the last few weeks the world’s entire power structure has been radically reconfigured.

It is not too much to say that following the end-day of Shemitah, September 13th, the world’s democratic paradigm died and a new ruling structure of technocratic corporatism was ushered in. This corporatism works hand-in-glove with entrenched governmental bureaucracies, so we can also call it by a more familiar name: Fascism.

In fact, even last month the Pope spoke at Congress in between two “fasces” as he announced the new world order.  Fasces  is a bound bundle of wooden rods, sometimes including an axe with its blade emerging and is where the word fascism comes from.  It seems no one ever seems to notice them.

Pope Congress Fasces Dollar Vigilante

But the word fascism is so charged with historical overtones that it is best to find other descriptors about which people have fewer preconceptions. Fewer preconceptions allow us to see what is taking place more clearly. And we have to try to be as clear-sighted as possible because the general media will give us no help.

In another 100 years or, historians will provide us with the necessary context . But a sociopolitical and economic context created a century from now is not going to help us today.

One needs to keep abreast of the news. One needs to read the alternative media, especially TDV. And one needs to appreciate the convulsive changes taking place.

We are talking about a very recent evolution. First came the dismantling of the EU’s mighty Schengen Area, which in fact is a dismantling of the European Union itself. Trade and migration barriers have gone back up and what is left of the EU is basically a central bank and a very corrupt regime in Brussels that yearns mostly for a standing army.

Now comes the Trans-Pacific Partnership ( to be accompanied eventually by a similar “Atlantic” agreement). Some of the TPP sounds fairly encouraging. Tariffs and other barriers to trade are reduced, for instance. But the main thrust of TPP is to empower large corporations and their un-elected and mostly unaccountable leaders.

Under the TPP, multinationals and powerful corporations can sue governments that make laws that interfere with business and profit-taking. This is a huge undermining of state power. Michael West, writing for the Sydney Morning Herald, had this to say:

The reality is this TPP free trade deal is as much about free trade as it is about entrenching the interests of large multinational corporations.  It is no secret that, while the citizens of the 12 signatory nations remain in the dark about the detail of the regional free trade pact, multinationals and their lobbyists had a large hand in shaping it. The US has a system of trade consultative committees. There are some 600 “cleared advisers” who consult to government. Of those, about 550 hail from the corporate sector; the rest a smattering of union, community and environment groups.  The cleared adviser has to sign a confidentiality contract and cannot talk about the deal but is free to give detailed advice to government.  Leg-up for vested interests.

Why the secrecy? Because TPP is a radical reconfiguration of the way the world works. It removes power from democracies and places it in the hands of unelected managers (technocrats) of gigantic private sector enterprises.

Henceforth, as this paradigm evolves, power will pass out of governments and into the hands of those who wield power unaccountably, protected by the very nation-states they are now being encouraged to sue. Of course this has increasingly been the case anyway, but there is a difference between wielding power behind the scenes and being empowered by law to do so.

What we can see both in the EU and with the TPP is further centralization of power in vast entities that are almost impervious to challenge. The average person has no chance of influencing EU decision making. And when it comes to the TPP, the average person will  have no chance to confront multinationals. Meanwhile, multinationals that are distrustful of a given nation’s legal system will be able to turn to a variety of extra-national tribunals that will be empowered to make binding decisions.

Surely the scaffolding of global governance is being erected with treaties like the TPP. It didn’t even take the United Nations. The banking cabal that is seeking ever more concentrated power worldwide finds it easier to pursue the convergence it seeks via secret treaties that are realized via tremendous pressure brought on individual governments behind the scenes.

We have seen this all before of course. Most recently with the first information revolution that introduced books and allowed people to read the Bible. It soon became evident that the Catholic Church had not been telling the truth about the written Word of God and this revelation ushered in significant discontent  expanding the Renaissance and leading to the Reformation, Age of Enlightenment and the American and French Revolutions.

Now thanks to the internet, we are engaged in another tumultuous era. The initial information revolution sank the Church, which in turn stripped kings of credible divinity. As a result, democracy gradually emerged (or was foisted upon us).

But the internet has shattered the credibility of democracy. In the US for instance, confidence in government (congress) is running in single digits. That’s  a rounding error.

What people have not yet comprehended is that as democracy gradually dies, a new system of rulership is waiting in the wings. This system involves a corporate-government alliance managed by an unelected technocracy.

The system is already quite well worked out and values “expertise” above all else. Those welcomed into the ranks of technocracy go to the best schools and receive the “best” educations. What this really means is that the best and brightest receive a homogeneous world view whether they are in the US or Europe or elsewhere.

This is how a technocrat elite is being built and the only problem with it is that the beliefs of the emerging technocratic class are quite questionable at best and propaganda at worst.

What are some of these faulty beliefs? Well, one of the simplest is the idea that multinationals are an outgrowth of capitalism. They are not.

Multinationals only exist because of judicial fiat. They are an enforcement of the state. They rest on a three-legged stool of court decisions including intellectual property rights, corporate personhood and central banking – itself an absurd  invention of Leviathan.

One can easily make the case that people ought to be responsible for their own decisions and that the awesome power of the state ought not to be used to protect one’s personal property. Surely those who believe that ideas can be claimed and “owned” ought to be encouraged to use their own resources to enforce their beliefs.

Central banking is perhaps the most egregiously false dogma to which our managing caste clings. It is impossible for a small group of individuals to set the price and volume of “money” for the rest of us. To do this involves knowledge of the future that is simply not available using backwards-looking statistics.

To counteract this logical fallacy, the idea of the “expert” has been promulgated with extreme violence worldwide. The new, emergent priest class is to use the best statistics and mathematical protocols to create decisions that will anticipate the future and render harmless various kinds of disasters.

This is, however, a kind of nonsense. Central bankers cannot know the future anymore than other kinds of industrial technocrats. NO ONE can know the future. No one, for the most part, can make better predictions than anyone else.

But this is what we are being asked to believe. This is the shape of the future – in which a few “supermen” furnished with the most prodigious brains and best educations shall be held up as part of an “expert class” endowed by innate superiority with the right to rule.

This is the paradigm now under construction. For those who do not believe it can evolve into a force as powerful as democracy once was, please examine your assumptions. The elites have evolved such structural changes before and they use very blunt instruments to do so. Those instruments include war and economic depression.

This is the bloody birth of a new era, one drenched in migratory lunacy, the horror of drone warfare and the creeping genocide of economic depression. It probably doesn’t have a chance in hell of working as it has been almost entirely exposed by the internet and thousands of writer-researchers who have spent a decade or more examining it and publicizing their findings.

But it will create holy hell before it is fully discredited. Paranoid and  terrified, elites have truly “let loose the dogs of war.” Conflicts around the world have blossomed with terrible violence. Meanwhile, most of the world is  now suffering from increasing economic dysfunction.  In fact the next leg may have just been set-off a few hours ago when Deutschebank announced a $6 billion third quarter loss.  Their stock is currently down 6%… and we predicted it could be Deutschebank that really sets off this fall crisis (“Will Deutschebank Be This Cycle’s Lehman Brothers?“).

Silver also spiked higher today and the gold miners have begun to rally.  It was only two weeks ago that TDV’s Senior Analyst, Ed Bugos, told subscribers to purchase Direxion Daily Gold Miners Index Bull 3X Shares (NUGT) at $30.70.  It closed today at $41.49 for a gain of 35% in just two weeks.


Here at TDV, we cover the evolution of these “Shemitah trends” and seek to alert our readers not only to the problems we face in providing prosperity and security to our families but also a complex suite of necessary solutions. You can read about those solutions in our TDV newsletter.

Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, ‘The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, nor will people say, “Here it is,” or “There it is,” because the kingdom of God is in your midst.’

“Then he said to his disciples, The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. People will tell you, “There he is!” or “Here he is!” Do not go running off after them. For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other. But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.

“’Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.

“’It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.

“’It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. On that day no one who is on the housetop, with possessions inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. Remember Lot’s wife!

“‘Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it. I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left.'” (Luke 17:20-35, NIV)

Do not be deceived! Stay alert, keep informed and continue to watch …

“You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’
But you do not realize
that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 
I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich;
and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness;
and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.”
