THe following is an interesting open letter to German Chancellor Angela Merkel signed by Ex-NSA Director, US Intelligence Veterans Write and six additional members of the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity

The letter is urging Merkel To Avoid All-Out Ukraine War.

Ex-NSA Director, US Intelligence Veterans Write Open Letter To Merkel To Avoid All-Out Ukraine War

www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-09-01/ex-nsa...l-avoid-all-out-ukra

Alarmed at the anti-Russian hysteria sweeping Washington, and the specter of a new Cold War, U.S. intelligence veterans one of whom is none other than William Binney, the former senior NSA crypto-mathematician who back in March 2012 blew the whistle on the NSA's spying programs more than a year before Edward Snowden, took the unusual step of sending the following memo dated August 30 to German Chancellor Merkel challenging the reliability of Ukrainian and U.S. media claims about a Russian "invasion."

Via AntiWar and ConsortiumNews, highlights ours

MEMORANDUM FOR: Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany
FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)
SUBJECT: Ukraine and NATO

We the undersigned are longtime veterans of U.S. intelligence. We take the unusual step of writing this open letter to you to ensure that you have an opportunity to be briefed on our views prior to the NATO summit on September 4-5.

You need to know, for example, that accusations of a major Russian "invasion" of Ukraine appear not to be supported by reliable intelligence. Rather, the "intelligence" seems to be of the same dubious, politically "fixed" kind used 12 years ago to "justify" the U.S.-led attack on Iraq. We saw no credible evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq then; we see no credible evidence of a Russian invasion now. Twelve years ago, former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, mindful of the flimsiness of the evidence on Iraqi WMD, refused to join in the attack on Iraq. In our view, you should be appropriately suspicions of charges made by the US State Department and NATO officials alleging a Russian invasion of Ukraine.

President Barack Obama tried yesterday to cool the rhetoric of his own senior diplomats and the corporate media, when he publicly described recent activity in the Ukraine, as "a continuation of what’s been taking place for months now … it’s not really a shift."

Obama, however, has only tenuous control over the policymakers in his administration – who, sadly, lack much sense of history, know little of war, and substitute anti-Russian invective for a policy. One year ago, hawkish State Department officials and their friends in the media very nearly got Mr. Obama to launch a major attack on Syria based, once again, on "intelligence" that was dubious, at best.

Largely because of the growing prominence of, and apparent reliance on, intelligence we believe to be spurious, we think the possibility of hostilities escalating beyond the borders of Ukraine has increased significantly over the past several days. More important, we believe that this likelihood can be avoided, depending on the degree of judicious skepticism you and other European leaders bring to the NATO summit next week.

Experience With Untruth

Hopefully, your advisers have reminded you of NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen’s checkered record for credibility. It appears to us that Rasmussen’s speeches continue to be drafted by Washington. This was abundantly clear on the day before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq when, as Danish Prime Minister, he told his Parliament: "Iraq has weapons of mass destruction. This is not something we just believe. We know."

Photos can be worth a thousand words; they can also deceive. We have considerable experience collecting, analyzing, and reporting on all kinds of satellite and other imagery, as well as other kinds of intelligence. Suffice it to say that the images released by NATO on August 28 provide a very flimsy basis on which to charge Russia with invading Ukraine. Sadly, they bear a strong resemblance to the images shown by Colin Powell at the UN on February 5, 2003 that, likewise, proved nothing.

That same day, we warned President Bush that our former colleague analysts were "increasingly distressed at the politicization of intelligence" and told him flatly, "Powell’s presentation does not come close" to justifying war. We urged Mr. Bush to "widen the discussion … beyond the circle of those advisers clearly bent on a war for which we see no compelling reason and from which we believe the unintended consequences are likely to be catastrophic."

Consider Iraq today. Worse than catastrophic. Although President Vladimir Putin has until now showed considerable reserve on the conflict in the Ukraine, it behooves us to remember that Russia, too, can "shock and awe." In our view, if there is the slightest chance of that kind of thing eventually happening to Europe because of Ukraine, sober-minded leaders need to think this through very carefully.

If the photos that NATO and the US have released represent the best available "proof" of an invasion from Russia, our suspicions increase that a major effort is under way to fortify arguments for the NATO summit to approve actions that Russia is sure to regard as provocative. Caveat emptor is an expression with which you are no doubt familiar. Suffice it to add that one should be very cautious regarding what Mr. Rasmussen, or even Secretary of State John Kerry, are peddling.

We trust that your advisers have kept you informed regarding the crisis in Ukraine from the beginning of 2014, and how the possibility that Ukraine would become a member of NATO is anathema to the Kremlin. According to a February 1, 2008 cable (published by WikiLeaks) from the US embassy in Moscow to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, US Ambassador William Burns was called in by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who explained Russia’s strong opposition to NATO membership for Ukraine.

Lavrov warned pointedly of "fears that the issue could potentially split the country in two, leading to violence or even, some claim, civil war, which would force Russia to decide whether to intervene." Burns gave his cable the unusual title, "NYET MEANS NYET: RUSSIA’S NATO ENLARGEMENT REDLINES," and sent it off to Washington with IMMEDIATE precedence. Two months later, at their summit in Bucharest NATO leaders issued a formal declaration that "Georgia and Ukraine will be in NATO."

Just yesterday, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk used his Facebook page to claim that, with the approval of Parliament that he has requested, the path to NATO membership is open. Yatsenyuk, of course, was Washington’s favorite pick to become prime minister after the February 22 coup d’etat in Kiev. "Yats is the guy," said Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland a few weeks before the coup, in an intercepted telephone conversation with US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt. You may recall that this is the same conversation in which Nuland said, "Fuck the EU."

Timing of the Russian "Invasion"

The conventional wisdom promoted by Kiev just a few weeks ago was that Ukrainian forces had the upper hand in fighting the anti-coup federalists in southeastern Ukraine, in what was largely portrayed as a mop-up operation. But that picture of the offensive originated almost solely from official government sources in Kiev. There were very few reports coming from the ground in southeastern Ukraine. There was one, however, quoting Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, that raised doubt about the reliability of the government’s portrayal.

According to the "press service of the President of Ukraine" on August 18, Poroshenko called for a "regrouping of Ukrainian military units involved in the operation of power in the East of the country. … Today we need to do the rearrangement of forces that will defend our territory and continued army offensives," said Poroshenko, adding, "we need to consider a new military operation in the new circumstances."

If the "new circumstances" meant successful advances by Ukrainian government forces, why would it be necessary to "regroup," to "rearrange" the forces? At about this time, sources on the ground began to report a string of successful attacks by the anti-coup federalists against government forces. According to these sources, it was the government army that was starting to take heavy casualties and lose ground, largely because of ineptitude and poor leadership.

Ten days later, as they became encircled and/or retreated, a ready-made excuse for this was to be found in the "Russian invasion." That is precisely when the fuzzy photos were released by NATO and reporters like the New York Times’ Michael Gordon were set loose to spread the word that "the Russians are coming." (Michael Gordon was one of the most egregious propagandists promoting the war on Iraq.)

No Invasion – But Plenty Other Russian Support

The anti-coup federalists in southeastern Ukraine enjoy considerable local support, partly as a result of government artillery strikes on major population centers. And we believe that Russian support probably has been pouring across the border and includes, significantly, excellent battlefield intelligence. But it is far from clear that this support includes tanks and artillery at this point – mostly because the federalists have been better led and surprisingly successful in pinning down government forces.

At the same time, we have little doubt that, if and when the federalists need them, the Russian tanks will come.

This is precisely why the situation demands a concerted effort for a ceasefire, which you know Kiev has so far been delaying. What is to be done at this point? In our view, Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk need to be told flat-out that membership in NATO is not in the cards – and that NATO has no intention of waging a proxy war with Russia – and especially not in support of the ragtag army of Ukraine. Other members of NATO need to be told the same thing.

debsyl created a new topic New World Order in the forums.
An interesting article, but it is not surprising to me. It has been prophesied long ago in the Bible. Christians will come under SEVERE persecution, as the end draws near.

www.thenewamerican.com/world-news/item/1...ines-new-world-order

As awareness grows of the international establishment’s globalist plotting against liberty and national sovereignty, problems on the road toward a “New World Order” are becoming increasingly obvious, and opposition is surging in tandem. It seems that insider bigwigs are getting nervous. Changes in strategy may be forthcoming as a result. Still, as a recent “analysis” by establishment spokesman Henry Kissinger (shown) makes clear, the powerful forces of globalism and totalitarianism have no intention of backing down from their plot to impose their “New World Order” on humanity.


Americans who support individual liberty, biblical Christianity, national independence, free markets, the Constitution, and other traditional U.S. values ought to study Kissinger’s words carefully. The “New World Order” and the “regions” he and his fellow globalists are pushing are not a new idea — and for the overwhelming majority of humanity, its fruits have been and will be disaster.

Jeff Nielson created a new topic My latest interview with Paul Sandhu... in the forums.
I'm posting this clip in our Geopolitical section rather than the "Gold/Silver Talk" section (as I usually do), because my chats with Paul seem to range even further from (only) gold and silver than with other Hosts with whom I record clips.

Again, I encourage people to tune-in, as the interview format is a more effective means (for some people) to absorb particular concepts than via the straight discourse of a commentary...

Jeff Nielson replied to the topic Saudi Stooge "warns about the Jihadists" in the forums.
If there are any particular political puppets who are more revolting/despicable than any others; it must be the Muslim political puppets which the West has installed in numerous (primarily) Islamic regimes. Not only do these political puppets (literally) live like Kings, but they are even more traitorous toward their own people than any example of these human parasites.

No one is more active in oppressing-and-torturing Muslims in the world than the (puppet) Muslim governments which kow-tow to Western hegemony. Now we have the most-despicable of the most-despicable -- the puppet-parasite sitting on the throne of Saudi Arabia -- warning us of the dangers of "Islamic jihadists".

Where is the primary breeding-ground for these so-called terrorists/jihadists -- who, in any other time, and any other place would simply be called "revolutionaries"? Saudi Arabia. Who would these revolutionaries like to make their first target? The king of Saudi Arabia.

Given this MASSIVE SELF-INTEREST (to protect his own skin); obviously nothing this puppet-parasite says about these revolutionaries can be given the slightest credibility. If you were a brutal, oppressive, greedy, amoral Tyrant, and most of your own people wanted you dead; you would spread any-and-every form of lie you could think of regarding these revolutionaries -- in order to demonize them, and (hopefully) generate outside sympathy/support for your tyrant-regime.

Yet what do we see even amongst much of the Alternative Media (the supposed truth-tellers)? We see these ideology-blinded Idiots treating this as serious news. Just go to Jim Sinclair's site to see this for yourself...

www.jsmineset.com/

Anyone who cannot perceive the obvious/massive self-interest of Puppets like the Saudi king (and thus the obvious/massive motive to lie), is not worthy of presenting themselves as an analyst -- because their thinking is so clearly warped by ideological bias that they are (literally) incapable of thinking straight.

It doesn't matter if you "like Muslims" or "hate" Muslims (as do people like Sinclair), and it doesn't matter if you suspect that there might be kernels of truth in this anti-Muslim propaganda (as is generally the case with propaganda). If you wish to present yourself to the world as an "objective mind"; you have to recognize the obvious/irrefutable logic that not one word of this (constant) anti-Muslim propaganda can be taken seriously.

How did Hitler create a Holocaust (inside his country)? He told horrible, despicable lies about "Jewish people" (as a whole). How are the (Western) fascists endeavouring to create a GLOBAL HOLOCAUST against Muslims (i.e. global genocide) by telling the most-despicable lies which they are capable of fabricating in their evil minds, in order to demonize all Muslims.



It is so pathetically obvious, to anyone not already blinded by Hate. It is a part of the PATTERN of every act of genocide in the murderous history of our species. How do you create so much hatred (amongst your own people) that they are willing to WIPE OUT an entire tribe/religion/race? You tell endless, horrible lies about those people -- to brainwash your people to the point where they lose they own humanity.

This is standard practice in any/every army, of any/every nation. How do you create "soldiers" who will KILL ON COMMAND? You create hate. We are not naturally murderous (except for the tiny minority of psychopaths). We have to be conditioned to kill -- and (for thousands of years) the means/mode for generating such conditioning is HATE.

For any who have any doubts about this categorical statement; simply watch some (male) sports on TV, most-particularly a "play-off" series between two teams. What you will hear (irrespective of the sport) from any/every analyst is that the action/competition doesn't get really good "until the two teams start to really dislike each other" (i.e. hate each other).

If "hate" is a commonly used tool in the realm of professional sports (i.e. mere games), it will inevitably be a tool used in war (or genocide) -- which are much, much, much more serious "games".

How will we avoid a (global) genocidal war against Islam (the Final Solution of "the Crusades" begun over a thousand years ago)? By not allowing ourselves to be BRAINWASHED by the despicable Psychopaths who rule our societies, and control everything that we see and hear.

And (as I've pointed out before) for those who claim to have "seen" examples of atrocities by these "Jihadists", GO TO A MOVIE -- preferably one with lots of "special effects". What you will see is that it is now possible to make ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING seem ABSOLUTELY REAL.

Fifty years before the birth of "special effects", back in the days when the Corporate media was still acquiring its strangle-hold on everything we see-and-hear; a cliche was popularized in our societies:

Believe none of what you hear, and half of what you see.

Today, in a world where the Corporate media now has an absolute stranglehold on information, in a world where the most-extraordinary illusions can seem totally realistic, and in a world where we KNOW WE ARE BEING LIED TO ALL THE TIME; I suggest an "amendment" to that old cliche:

Believe none of what you hear, and none of what you see.


Unlike the movie-version of "the Matrix"; the Controllers of our societies (and our minds) can't plant their (false) images inside our heads -- at least not yet. We have to choose to absorb their lies/fiction/brainwashing. This means we can still choose not to allow these psychopaths to pollute our minds with their constant propaganda.

It's already too late for ideologues like Sinclair (and countless others like him). But if you're reading what's presented on this site, then it's not too late for you. Don't be a Hater. Don't let the Liars fool you too.

It's the only way we can prevent the Old World Order from turning the entire Western world into "the Fourth Reich".



The Wonderland Matrix

P.S. Note the post immediately before this, where the Liars inside the U.S. also warn of the "global peril" supposedly represented by these "Muslim jihadists".

Either all these people are telling the Truth, or they are all lying -- because they all agree with each other. Now here's the challenge for all those claiming to still have "open minds". Name ONE TIME where all these Liars have ever (simultaneously) told the Truth...

Deepcaster created a blog entry Profiting from Comin...

 

“Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital,… recently gave a presentation of his book…. The Real Crash: America’s Coming Bankruptcy – How to Save Yourself and Your Country, which warns that the next crisis will dwarf that of 2008…

“Schiff reiterated a theme … that quantitative easing will never end, but the tolerance of the market for dollar-denominated assets will end and bring about the next crisis episode….”

“Euro Pacific Capital’s Peter Schiff Warns of The Great Crash,” moneynews.com, 08/19/2014

European Central Bank Head, Mario Draghi recently signaled Eurozone QE is Dead Ahead. And the World has yet to deal with the Consequences of past and ongoing Fed, Japanese, and Chinese Monetary Policies. The coming Consequences of Central Bank QE and other Policies are reflected in the following Major Investors’ Actions and Analysts recommendations.

1) An Eminence Grise of the Newsletter Writing Fraternity just reiterated his recommendation that his Subscribers get entirely out of One Very Major Sector except for select small holdings in one Subsector.

2) And a Multi-Billionaire Investor recently made a $2 Billion Bet that a Turning Point in a Very Major Sector is impending.

3) And Multi-Decade Charts “Forecast” a Major Trend Turn in a Major Sector.

4) And a near-billionaire Investor just Published a Book describing why that Trend Turn was a High Probability.

5) And consider the Prophetic comments from David Stockman

“Central banks all over the world have been massively expanding their balance sheets, and as a result of that there are bubbles in everything in the world, asset values are exaggerated everywhere. The Fed is exporting this lunatic policy worldwide….

“It’s only a question of time before the central banks lose control, and a panic sets in when people realize that these values are massively overstated.”

“Former Reagan Budget Head David Stockman: Fed Has Created Gargantuan Global Bubble,” David Stockman, moneynews.com, November 2013  

6) And Deepcaster’s own Research Impels him to agree with all five of them.

The important point is the Rationale that each has for the Position Expressed.

1) Various Fundamental and Technical (“the Stock Market is exhausted”) Factors are cited to support Richard Russell’s recently expressed view that his “Subscribers (are) hopefully out of all common stocks except for Gold Miners.”

2) A $2 Billion Bet on a Market Crash via e.g., Puts on the S&P 500 placed by George Soros speaks for itself.

3) And that Multi-Decade Equities Bearish Expanding Wedge is the Ultimate Jaws of Death Technical Pattern forecasting an Equities Market Crash some time in the next few months—stay tuned for Deepcaster’s Timing forecasts in this regard.

4) And perhaps a Major Cause of the Impending Crash — the fact that Equities Markets have been artificially buoyed up by Fiat Money Printing by the Central Banks, coupled with Massive Sovereign and other Borrowing—a Hermageddan Credit Bubble as author Bill Bonner would put it.

5) And Jim Rickards joins Peter Schiff in identifying the Mega- Bankers as the Main Culprits

“Bankers’ parasitic behavior, the result of a cultural phase transition, is entirely characteristic of a society nearing collapse. Wealth is no longer created; it is taken from others. Parasitic behavior is not confined to bankers; it also infects high government officials, corporate executives and the elite societal stratum….

Jim Rickards, The Death of Money, June 2014

And regarding Parasitic Bankers helping other Bankers (to the detriment of virtually everyone else), David Stockman well describes the ostensibly American private for-profit Fed’s Gift to the Foreign Mega Banks.

“This profit stripping operation is simple. Foreign banks on Wall Street borrow from money market funds at an infinitesimal 3-6 basis points and then shuffle the loot down to 33 Liberty Street where the New York Fed pays them 25 basis points on the same funds. This gift is known as the IOER payment for excess reserves. It is a short-term trade which is rolled-over day after day and is absolutely risk free….

“This seems like a screaming outrage that couldn’t be true—especially because the real beneficiaries of the Fed’s largesse are Europe’s giant banks which are insolvent but socialized wards of the state. …  

Just as the Fed instructs foreign banks to ‘come and get it’ with its locked-in IOER/money market spread, it delivers the same message to the entirety of what has become the Wall Street gambling casino….

The heart of the evil is interest pegging itself. That is, the replacement of market prices with administered prices—direct and indirect—throughout the financial system….

“Now that is the essence of Fed Policy. An all-powerful, un elected arm of the state has transformed itself into a crooked croupier and has no intention of leaving the casino.”

“Why The Fed’s Outrageous Gift to Foreign Banks—Risk Free Arbitrage On IOER—Is Just The Tip Of The Iceberg,” David Stockman, davidstockmanscontracorner.com, 08/23/2014

And it is not merely that The Fed is primarily engaged in helping its Mega-Bank Clients/Shareholders but that its policies are hurting Investors, Wage-earners and Retirees and indeed the entire Real Economy.

“The Fed has not made the world a better place with its interventions. It has created moral hazard, encouraged the formation of asset bubbles that eventually pop (leaving economic messes), widened the wealth inequality gap to record levels, discouraged savings and investment, severely penalized retirees on fixed incomes, encouraged spending, funded massive government deficit spending by monetizing the debts, lengthened the recession and likely reduced the number of jobs that would have been created if the economy had been allowed to take its normal course. Eventually, the Fed’s policy interventions will also have created debilitating, widespread consumer inflation, the cruelest tax against the poor and middle classes.”

Fred Hickey, (aka the High-Tech Strategist) August, 2014

Indeed, a Fed-led Cartel has and is manipulating Prices in many markets and suppressing the prices of Gold and Silver. But one can use knowledge of these Manipulations to Profitable Advantage – see Note 2 re The Cartel.

6) But Deepcaster and Richard Russell both expect one more Major Upside Equities Surge to “New Record Highs” before The Great Crash Begins.

In this regard, see Deepcaster’s Forecasts and Buy Recommendations at Deepcaster.com and note how our Monitoring Fundamentals, Technicals and Interventionals has facilitated recent profitable positions (see Note 1 re Recent Profits Taken).

Of course, Intensifying Negative Geopolitical Events, and/or weakening Fundamentals, and/or rising interest rates could launch The Great Crash at any Time.

“Since the beginning of July, we’ve seen a sputtering stock market, a 65 basis point widening in high-yield spreads, a 15 basis point flattening of the Treasury curve (2s-10s) and a strong dollar (DXY US dollar index up 1.5%). This is typical of how the markets behave three or four months ahead of the onset of a Fed rate-hiking cycle.”

David Rosenberg, 08/14/2014

Apparently David Rosenberg and George Soros (and notwithstanding his destructive deconstructive political views) agree with Deepcaster about what is coming – mainly a Consequence of Major Central Bank Policies.

Finally, it is essential to Monitor The Real Numbers (e.g., US CPI at 9.8% and Real Unemployment at %) rather than the Bogus Official One (see Note 3).

To be forewarned facilitates being forearmed for Profit and Wealth Protection as we were in 2008 (see Note 2). In other words, to profit from the coming QE/Debt Consequences, closely monitor the Fundamentals, Technicals and Interventionals, and The Real Numbers, not the Bogus Official ones.

Jeff Nielson replied to the topic U.S. propaganda-war against ISIS escalates... in the forums.
...while the real war it is waging against its new "enemies" in Iraq also intensifies.


Clearly nothing which is reported from by the serial liars of the Western media about ISIS can be considered reliable, any more than the absurd/serial propaganda which it manufactures about Russia and its supposed 'crimes' in the Ukraine. They are simply making stuff up with regard to the ridiculous anti-Russia propaganda -- and there is no reason to believe its any different with respect to ISIS.

For those who claim to have seen clips/video of (supposed) "ISIS atrocities", I have just one question for you. Have you been to a movie lately???

What we see here in the geopolitical realm is precisely what we have been seeing in the economic realm over the past 1 - 2 years. The Liars no longer even care of their propaganda has any factual basis whatsoever. And they are so brazen that they regularly propagate lies which are not merely wrong, but are literally the precise opposite of reality -- i.e. perverse.

I'm not suggesting that this means that ISIS is going around giving bouquets of flowers to the women, handing out lollipops to the children, and shaking hands with all the men. This is civil war. For any who need to be reminded of the atrocities which people can and do commit against their neighbours in a "civil war", simply read-up on the American civil war.

This was written roughly 2,500 years ago...

In war, truth is the first casualty.

Now the ISIS Boogeyman supposedly has "global aspirations" (lol!). Didn't we just finish watching exactly the same movie with the "Al Qaeda" boogeyman? If so; prepare for another false-flag attack (which have also been going on thousands of years).

P.S. Naturally these "global aspirations" will be used as the excuse for the NEW war-crimes which the U.S. is committing and will commit against the people of Iraq. Anything to get the oil flowing again...but with the West's Big Oil companies doing most of the pumping.





Pentagon warns that Isis has global aspirations as US continues Iraq strikes

www.theguardian.com/world/2014/aug/26/is...agon-warn-syria-iraq

US effort to build international coalition against Isis advanced, as UK and six other nations agreed to arm the Kurdish peshmerga

The Pentagon warned on Tuesday that Islamic State (Isis) militants have global aspirations, ratcheting up already dire US rhetoric against the jihadist army that has overrun much of Iraq and Syria.

“Quite frankly, we’re not turning a blind eye to their global aspirations as well,” said Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary.

Isis has not conducted attacks outside of Iraq – its gestation ground – and Syria, where its successes brought it global attention. Its own rhetoric imagines a global Islamic caliphate, obliterating man-made borders, but its capabilities – which include access to oil wealth – fall significantly short.

Yet Isis’s attraction of as many as thousands of western passport holders has convinced US intelligence that Isis fighters will plot attacks against the US and Europe...

Jeff Nielson created a new topic Comex gold warehouses filling up (lol)?? in the forums.
As we see more and more often in the Wonderland Matrix; whenever there is a "problem" (i.e. a crime about to implode) in one of our "markets" (i.e. crime-scenes), the solution is just to make stuff up.



In this particular case; the problem was Comex gold supplies plummeting to a low of around 7 million ounces -- an unprecedented collapse in "official" gold inventories (i.e. inventories of supposed metal). Now we're told that these inventories have "recovered", increasing by roughly 50%, or (at one point) about 4 million ounces of "gold".

The obvious question is where did this "new gold" come from, in a global market in a permanent supply-deficit??? As we've already heard confessed by the Corporate media itself; the "scrap" market for gold has already dried-up -- a function of the permanently (and severely) depressed (i.e. manipulated) price.

Thus the only (theoretically) possible "sources" for this gold are mine-supply (where there is permanent deficit) or some SECRET HOARD. In this respect; we have this "coincidental" report originating in Russian media:

Ukraine’s Gold Reserves Secretely Flown Out and Confiscated by the New York Federal Reserve?


Thus with respect to the supposed "increase" in the supply of gold in Comex warehouses, we're left with two (plausible) explanations. The "gold" is purely imaginary, like 99% of the "gold" in the banksters' paper-called-gold market; OR the gold being offered for sale doesn't belong to these Criminals at all -- but rather the people of Ukraine (who will obviously never see that gold again).





Comex Gold Warehouse Stocks Swell As Physical Demand Slumps


www.kitco.com/news/2014-08-27/Comex-Gold...l-Demand-Slumps.html

Light physical gold demand has been a common theme in the gold market for the past few months, with gold forward rates and Shanghai Gold Exchange premiums low or sometimes negative.

Another sign, albeit less widely watched, is the rise in Comex gold warehouse stocks. As of Aug. 25, the combined total of registered and eligible warehouse stocks was 9.863 million troy ounces, the highest since March 11, 2013, when they were at 9,863,758.707 ounces, according to CME Group data. But a recent peak in the 11 million ounces level was as high in January 2013...



Ukraine’s Gold Reserves Secretely Flown Out and Confiscated by the New York Federal Reserve?


www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=92978

A Russian Internet news site Iskra (“Spark”) based in Zaporozhye, eastern Ukraine, reported on March 7, that “Ukraine’s gold reserves had been hastily airlifted to the United States from Borispol Airport east of Kiev”.

This alleged airlift and confiscation of Ukraine’s gold reserves by the New York Federal Reserve has not been confirmed by the Western media...

Gee, here's a big surprise. The LME (London Metal Exchange), one of the older and more-important tentacles of the One Bank has been dismissed as a possible "defendant" by yet another corrupt, U.S. judge. For those who need a reminder of what I mean by "gangster racketeering", just have a look at this piece from last year:

London Metals-Fraud Revealed

What we are very clearly dealing with here is SYSTEMIC FRAUD in the trading (and storage) of base metals, and the LME is "the system". It is thus outrageous, and more obvious corruption, to see a U.S. judge eliminating the LME as a defendant in the FIRST law-suit over this base metals racketeering.

Note, in particular, the entirely bogus reason for giving the LME immunity:

...the LME was an "organ" of the UK government and immune from the lawsuit under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act.

The LME is a PRIVATE CORPORATION. Only in fascism is the distinction between "government" and "corporation" erased.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: the Rule of Law is dead in the USA...

Judge dismisses LME from aluminum price-fixing lawsuits

In a decision made public on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest in Manhattan said the LME was an "organ" of the UK government and immune from the lawsuit under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act.

Forrest's decision does not affect other defendants in the case, which include Glencore Plc, Goldman Sachs Group Inc, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and various commodity trading, metals mining and metals warehousing companies...

Thanks for the post Debsyl.

Certainly nothing in this brief article is in any way surprising, given what we already know-and-suspect about this atrocity. Conversely; reading it fills me with mixed sentiments.

On the one hand; we have an (alleged) agreement between four seemingly unrelated nations: Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, and Ukraine. The only common element to these four governments is that (now) all four are squarely aligned WITH the Axis of Evil.

It would be much easier to understand this (and thus believe it to be true) if the four signatories had been the U.S., UK, France, and Ukraine instead. But then again, if the Russians were simply going to make this up (for their own propaganda) then why not create a more-believable lie and invent a "secret agreement" between four more-plausible governments?

Sadly, reports such as this are almost impossible to confirm. Our corrupt mainstream media won't even report open facts about our own economies. There's ZERO chance that these puppet-parrots will report on a confidential agreement between four foreign nations.

If it is true, it's simply another indication of the degree of control exerted by the One Bank over these governments. It can not only get these Puppet Governments to commit any and every kind of atrocity imaginable -- it can get them (either before or after) to parrot any lies it dictates, no matter how absurd.

We in North American live in “consumer economies”. Sadly, while most of us (even most Sheep) are familiar with this truism, few properly understand the ramifications – and certainly we cannot rely upon the drones of the Corporate media to enlighten us.

The first point to note with any (supposed) “consumer economy” is that this necessarily implies an unsustainable economy, and thus a dying economy. “Consumption” itself is nothing more than deploying (i.e. using-up) wealth.

It is mathematically impossible for consumption (by itself) to create wealth, and thus economic prosperity/growth...

Whoa, whoa, whoa; Debsyl! Whoever said anything about RT being "unbiased"???



We are talking purely "lessers of evil" here. It's certainly not a case of Russia becoming much more "virtuous" recently, or even in comparison to the Soviet Union. Rather, this is totally a function of how our own "media" (i.e. the compulsive Liars of our propaganda machine) have devolved.

With the Western media; we not only know that basically EVERYTHING is false (except for information they consider trivial/irrelevant), it is generally the exact, perverse OPPOSITE of reality.

When you see me defending Muslims and/or Islamic culture; my strongest "arguments" won't be from anything I see/read/hear on RT. Rather, my strongest argument is that the Liars of our own media consistently say such horrible things about Muslims/Islamic culture -- and we know that most of what they say is OPPOSITE to reality.

These are the same Liars who tell us (every day) how wonderful Israel is.
These are the same Liars who tell us (every day) how our economies continue to "strengthen".
These are the same Liars who tell us (every day) how they "fixed" the problems with our financial system after the Crash of `08.
These are the same Liars who tell us (every day) that "9/11" was solely the work of 21 "Muslim terrorists".
These are the same Liars who tell us (every day) that central bankers are our friends, and that the Big Banks are the "foundations" of our economies (rather than the cancer).
These are the same Liars who tell us (every day) that the ONLY "villain" in the coup and civil war in Ukraine is Russia.

So when these same Liars tell us (every day) that "Islamic governments" are worse than any other governments, and that Muslims are such horrible people (in comparison to all of the virtuous Christians and Jews), what should you believe???

Thanks for the post, Debsyl.

As is my general style (lol); I'm going to agree with parts of Weir's positions/arguments, and disagree with others.

When you write:

According to Bix Weir there is no real physical silver exchange in the world.


...all this is, is another way of re-stating something which I say on a near-daily basis (lol): we have no markets -- just crime scenes.

To understand this requires understanding one of the basic functions of markets, something which is never discussed any more: "price discovery".

In a free market (something which we supposedly have); the "price" for any good is where (literally) supply meets demand -- where a buyer and seller agree on a specific price.

However, in our totally manipulated markets, where "price" is simply an arbitrary number generated by the One Bank's Master Trading Algorithm, we have no price discovery. Without price discovery; when someone asks the question "what should the price be for this?" or "what is the real price for this?"; no one can supply a precise answer.

All we can do is make estimates, based upon particular assumptions/parameters. In the simplest terms (and as I've pointed out many times) the Western paper currencies are already worthless -- that happened as soon as these governments began their fraudulent "quantitative easing".

Thus the "price" for anything (expressed in these worthless currencies) is "infinity". However, there is still one other way of "pricing" goods, which is quasi-legitimate, even with worthless currencies: the relative value of goods, expressed in this worthless paper.

To do that; we start with the most over-priced asset or the most under-priced asset on the planet, and then calibrate all other prices relative to that base-level. However, since price-suppression is the primary goal of this manipulation (i.e. more goods/markets are being suppressed than inflated), the logical choice to use as our base-level is the world's most over-priced asset: U.S. Treasuries.

Based on historic valuations for this paper (i.e. back before these bonds were totally worthless) we can roughly estimate how over-valued the Treasuries of today are versus those historical prices.

As many readers should know; in the bond market "price" is simply the inverse of the interest rate. The higher the interest rate, the lower the price. The higher the price; the lower the interest rate. Thus with U.S. interest rates artificially manipulated to their lowest level in history; prices are at their highest level in history.

This is despite the facts that:

1) The U.S. is obviously/hopelessly insolvent, thus these bonds have never been riskier. In legitimate markets; the greater the risk, the higher the interest rate necessary to compensate for that risk. Thus U.S. interest rates (for that reason alone) should be at the highest level in history.

2) The dollar is dying. Not only is it being phased-out as reserve currency; but Helicopter Ben and his "Adam's Rib" have been printing up USD's by the countless $trillions. Diluting the currency like this (and thus lowering its value) requires even higher interest rates to compensate investors.

Taking these factors into account; we could say (conservatively) that U.S. Treasuries are over-valued by (at least) a factor of ten. (They are actually infinitely over-valued, since they are technically worthless). This is why if I'm forced to assign some "price" for silver today (that is non-infinity); I tell people to (at least) "add a zero on the end" i.e. multiply it by ten.

With silver (and gold) being the world's most under-valued assets; adding a zero to the end is a very, very conservative valuation.

Now with respect to his (and Sinclair's) thoughts on holding/owning shares, as far as I know, neither one of them has any legal training. So when people with no legal training offer legal opinions, one should be very hesitant to rely upon them.

Whether one has a purely "electronic" interest in a company, or holds some "certificate" in their own hands has absolutely ZERO legal significance. That said; we live in lawless societies, which are (literally) run by Thieves (lol!!).

In such a world; it is possible to invent scenarios where someone holding the shares in their own hands is better off than someone who held them electronically. Conversely; if you hold the shares yourself; YOU accept personal risk for their security.

If your home should burn down (with your certificates stored inside), I would question whether your insurance company would consider those certificates to be covered by your insurance. They would argue that you had NEEDLESSLY exposed that asset to risk (because you could have held them electronically), deem that "a reckless act" on your part, and argue that the asset is thus not covered.

You could store the certificates in a safety deposit box. As I've pointed out before; safety deposit boxes offer (slightly) more "security" for your assets than (for example) storing money in a savings account. It's harder for a bank to steal what's in your safety deposit box than to steal what's in your bank account.

But then the question becomes inconvenience. You CAN'T "trade" with your certificates (in our electronic world). You thus have to continually TAKE shares to your broker any time you want to sell anything, and RETRIEVE your (new) shares from the broker any time you buy anything. (And if your insurance company would ensure your certificates; they would have to be notified every time your holdings changed.)

In the world I live in; the minimal "security" gained by listening to people like Sinclair on this subject is more than offset by the enormous inconvenience. And (as I pointed out) you still can't eliminate all risk by holding certificates.

This information comes from Koos Jansen, one of the sharper minds reporting on the precious metals sector -- and especially well-informed about Asian markets for precious metals (most-notably China, in the past).

One of the things which separates Jansen's research/analysis from most others is that he looks for his (Asian) data first-hand -- i.e. directly from Asian sources -- rather than merely absorbing the (second-hand) lies about these markets which we get from Western media sources.

The big "number" is here is the final number Jansen produces for Indian silver imports for all of 2013: 6,125 tonnes. The last numbers I had seen (and written on) myself came from late October, and put India (supposedly) on a path to end the year slightly above the 5,000-tonne level.

What this indicates is that either India's government had previously been low-balling its estimates for silver imports, OR that Indians ended 2013 with a frantic binge of silver-buying. Either explanation is obviously "bullish" for those of us in this sector.

Also, this reinforces what was written in my second most-recent commentary: that (in 2014) we have witnessed a FULL-FLEDGED RETREAT by the One Bank with respect to India's gold embargo. Obviously with India's gold imports being allowed to (rapidly) rise back to normal -- in response to these gigantic numbers for silver imports -- this is further proof of my own conclusion: that the Indian gold-embargo was always/exclusively something planned and initiated by the One Bank, itself.

How India Evaded The One Bank’s Gold-Embargo

India Imported 6125 Tonnes Of Silver In 2013

Back to business; India’s customs department DGCIS just came out with their final trade numbers for gold and silver in 2013. Only gross import numbers for both precious metals are disclosed in these reports, the export numbers I grabbed from the Comtrade database (although these numbers are quite insignificant).

Starting from August 2013 all Indian traders had to export 20 % of their gold imports. This was a measure designed by the government, on top of an import duty that was raised to raised to 10 %, to slow down gold import. Of course the only result from these measures was that official gold import dropped like a brick, premiums skyrocketed and Indian supply shifted to smuggling. In this next chart by Nick Laird we can see how the import duty pushed the premiums to 25 % in january...

Yes, Jeff, these are terrible atrocities to be sure. One would be ignorant if one thought such terrible cruelty does not take place, even daily, within the western world. It is by the grace of God that these atrocities are not the norm and that our societies have not already slipped into total lawlessness. To suggest however that our SOCIETY is as ruthless and barbaric as the Middle East and Africa would be false.

As you know we have firsthand knowledge of what takes place in Africa and I can tell you the people there are barbaric and ruthless, slaughtering each other because they belong to a different tribe or "brand" of a given religion. In Canada, you will find multiple races, cultures, and relgions living side by side in peace.

To say that many people (not all) are not brutally savage, in Africa and the Middle East, would be incorrect. Having written that, I will add that our societies are at risk of collapsing to this as well. As I wrote earlier, it is by the grace of God that we have not fallen thus far. Our prayer is that He will not remove this UNMERITED favor from the west.

That said; there are (were) in fact three ways to find The Daily Grind. The easiest way is the column of "Recent Forum Posts" on the lower left side of the homepage.

It would have been more convenient if this news item would have come out before I published my latest commentary on how India "evaded the One Bank's gold embargo". Instead, however, it has come out right after I wrote this commentary -- and thus can only be used to verify the contents of that commentary (in hindsight).

How India Evaded The One Bank’s Gold-Embargo

Two points to add to what is written below: the estimate that Indian gold-smuggling increased by (only) 700% last year is based upon the number of gold SEIZURES by Indian customs officials. However, given that we appear to have witnessed systemic/deliberate "corruption" (in terms of India's government allowing smuggled gold into the country); one must assume that this report of a 700% increase in gold-smuggling is just a tip-of-the-iceberg number.



The other point to note is that this smuggling was continuing to accelerate all the way through June of this year -- even after India's government had already begun relaxing import restrictions. This indicates how much pent-up APPETITE for gold had built-up in India, even though the gold-embargo only lasted half a year.



Gold smuggling surged seven-fold in India during 2013-'14: CBEC

www.scrapmonster.com/news/gold-smuggling...2013-14-cbec/1/16977

According to the information provided by the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) and the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) to the Ministry of Finance, gold smuggling has witnessed unprecedented surge during 2013-’14.

As per data, Indian Customs Department detected 2,419 incidents of gold seizures during the fiscal 2013-‘14. The value of seized gold during the period totaled Rs 678 crores. The seizure of smuggled gold has multiplied nearly seven times when compared with Rs 94 crores worth gold seized in 919 cases during the previous fiscal...
