The big story this week has not been news coming out of the widely covered World Economic Forum in Davos or the much anticipated bond-buying program in Europe known as QE. The big story is the sheer number of central banks moving into panic mode in the span of a week.
We may be forced to change the name of our web site to “Central Banks On Parade.” Since last Thursday, seven separate central banks have taken action to guard against deflationary forces now moving like an out of control wildfire around the globe. Central bank moves in Switzerland, Canada, Denmark and Peru came as a surprise to markets and may have had a secondary agenda of drawing some blood from speculators.
The most heavily anticipated announcement came today from Mario Draghi, President of the European Central Bank. At 2:30 p.m. Central European Time today, Draghi announced that the central bank will expand its current program of purchasing asset-backed securities and covered bonds by including the purchase of sovereign debt from its Eurozone members. The program will run from this March until September of 2016 with 60 billion euros in bonds being purchased each month.
Yesterday, Canada’s central bank, the Bank of Canada, shocked markets by announcing it is lowering its target overnight rate by one-quarter of one percentage point to 3/4 percent. The central bank said the move comes in response to “the recent sharp drop in oil prices.” In a statement released at the time of the announcement, the bank stated:
“Business investment in the energy-producing sector will decline. Canada’s weaker terms of trade will have an adverse impact on incomes and wealth, reducing domestic demand growth. Although there is considerable uncertainty around the outlook, the Bank is projecting real GDP growth will slow to about 1 1/2 per cent and the output gap to widen in the first half of 2015…The Bank expects Canada’s economy to gradually strengthen in the second half of this year, with real GDP growth averaging 2.1 per cent in 2015 and 2.4 per cent in 2016.”
The Danish National Bank cut its deposit rate deeper into negative territory on Monday as speculators pour into the currency (Krone) in the belief that Denmark will have to abandon its peg to the Euro, following the same move by Switzerland last Thursday. Central banks can spend billions of dollars attempting to maintain such pegs. If the costs become too exorbitant as speculators pile in, the peg is at risk of abandonment. Monday’s action cut the deposit rate by 15 basis points to minus 0.2.

We can help bring down the Cabal and defeat the Depopulation Agenda
Big Pharma is one of the sources of funds for the Cabal. It also serves as the weapon of mass destruction via vaccine tainted with live virus it is suppose to protect us from, and the deadly chemicals use to treat our diseases that they caused through our GMO / pesticide contaminated food supply.
We can avoid using drugs, defeat any viral attack and scaremongering easily by knowing how to build our own comprehensive antiviral system. Find more about it here.
You can actually participate in the global efforts to cripple the Deep State organized criminal cabal's ability for genocide, while enjoying healthcare freedom at the same time, by boycotting Big Pharma for good.
