"Derivatives" are a new-fangled Wall-Street gamble, played by all the banksters and rich people who have way too much money on their hands, because their tax rates have been lowered, and they don't reinvest much money into their businesses. They've been holding onto our capital, while loaning to China. China isn't doing so hot now. Anyway, derivatives are not like regular market investments, because there is no real value behind them. Basically, they are BETS. "I bet that that bunde of mortgages will fail," having NO CONNECTION to the things they are betting on.

Remember when I used to warn about the derivatives bubble, when it was only 600 TRILLION DOLLARS? - More money than the world had available to pay? Now the bubble is up to $2000 Trillion. What happens when, say, China slows down, (like it is), and, say, prime interest rates go up a little - or, say, companies and banks and rich people have to cover their losses from falling oil investments??? They rush in to cash their derivatives - their bets.

That's when the bubble will burst. Suddenly, there will be a tidal wave of people trying to cash in the derivatives. Remember, there isn't the slightest amount of money to cover these - or even a fraction of these.

But, the most powerful, at least, will DEMAND that their bets be cashed. So, what are they trying to do? They are trying to do what I warned they would try to do. They are trying to get USA taxpayers to pay for their losses. And, then, it will also be taken out of our bank $$$ accounts, which, #1, have recently been deemed the PROPERTY OF THE BANKS, and, #2, are only protected by the FDIC by a fraction, (and only up to a certain amount) - meaning a full bank run will mean most people will lose their money, (after going through what Cyprus went through).

It is their planned coup-de-gras. They ride a wave of privilege and corruption, and use this temporal power to make sure that when they crash, the crash is transferred to the rest of humanity.

They have already tried to sneak this legislation through, while everyone is all riled up about black-versus-white, post-ISIS, post-Ebola, post-ping...
