Here are the links to a two-part interview from Rory (of SGTReport).

Eric Dubin – They Could Conceivably Kill the COMEX

Part I


Join us as we take a look at the silver market since the US Mint sold out of American Silver Eagles. We review what has happened and the possibilities that loom around the corner.

600 Metric Tons of Gold Does Not Exist at Current Prices – Eric Dubin

This is part 2 of my interview with Eric Dubin


We conclude our discussion of the current state of affairs at the COMEX which leads us to discuss how the true physical market, the Shanghai Gold Exchange, is impacting the markets and the flow of metal in and out of the market.

[p. 207] Lindbergh leaves absolutely no doubt as to who the principal Failures are in our societies -- the same Failures who sabotaged life in his own era.

Had it not been for a few geniuses in science, mechanics and in all fields of service except economics and politics, the profiteer system would have reduced the majority of us to mere beasts. The world has made wonderful progress in everything – except politics and economics.
I'm sure it's no mystery to regular readers why someone who singles out the politicians and economists (i.e. the "Traitors" and the "Charlatans") as the principal Failures of our societies is my new, personal hero.

I think the first time I heard that line (long ago) was in some TV comedy, or perhaps a stand-up routine:

"You can call me ________, or call me _______; just don't call me late for dinner."



P.S. There are a few lines in my own, standard repertoire which I've been using for so long that I can't remember if I made-up the line myself -- or "borrowed it" from someone else.

[p. 119] Lindbergh describes how the Economic Pie is divided up in our societies (then and now):

The parasites get it all, honest industry and honest business must be grateful for a few crumbs only.

This is what is known to economists (and every good Right-Winger) as "trickle-down economics".

So the question is what's gonna happen to the gold price over the next 10 days?

My thought was that it would be bounced up and down like a yoyo to "demonstrate" to the the Swiss that its an erratic barbarous relic. The steady rise over the last week or so has me worried that it might be getting away from them. The Dutch repatriation announcement is an interesting twist. Its not too late to acquire phys but I feel a tonne better buying after the dips (rather than chasing it up).

Do they smash it on the weekends an let it rise during the week? Let it rise with a huge smash just before the vote?

Thoughts


WorkinStiff, the ever-increasing lack of transparency in our (corrupt) world forces me to a little more humble -- at least some of the time (lol).

With these psychopaths having so MANY different schemes at work (and "targets" they're attacking); I'm having more and more problems trying to connect SPECIFIC events with specific plans.

In this particular case; I'm going to offer a piece of advice which I usually forget myself (lol): we must remember not to think about "the price of gold" (or silver) exclusively denominated in USD's. The USD has (absurdly) been rising against ALL "currencies" lately --and gold is a currency.

Thus if we looked at a gold chart of the last few weeks in rupees, or pounds, or euros; I suspect it would look significantly different.

Conveniently; this was also recently posted on the Forum.

Will Putin play the gold card?


I was somewhat skeptical about that plan, but had to acknowledge that it was at least feasible that it could happen. And if Russia was planning to "back the rouble with gold"; that would be an even bigger reason for the Psychopaths to start whacking-around the price of gold (yet again).

With respect to your own theory; I think it's probability (again) depends on something which we cannot know with reliability. Recent STORIES (from the propaganda machine) indicate that the gold-referendum looks certain to be defeated. If that's true; then there is less of a need for the strategy you suggest.

Conversely, if they're LYING about Swiss support for the referendum (and lying is always possible); then that increases the motive to use the price of gold as a tool to shake the confidence of the Swiss people.

The New Federation

www.sprottmoney.com/news/the-new-federat...on-sprott-money-news

In previous commentaries; readers have seen scoffs of derision with respect to (arguably) the two, most-important propaganda myths of the 21st century: the New Normal, and the New World Order. The gist of that criticism is that we rarely see anything truly “new” in our lives, in conceptual terms.

The declaration (through propaganda and/or disinformation) that we have two all-encompassing, new paradigms which supposedly comprise our current reality is patently ludicrous, on its surface. Context changes. Principles are immutable...

Thanks to Sean at SGTReport for pointing me toward this!

Yet again; it makes it very clear (in case it wasn't clear enough already) that Edward Snowden was a HERO not (as the Liars claim) "a traitor". After Snowden's revelations that NSA spying was grossly excessive (not to mention illegal/unconstitutional); the Fascists have been given the chance to FIX what is obviously out-of-control "Big Brother" surveillance.

And what have they done (via the ultra-fascist Republican majority)? They have ENDORSED this Orwellian society -- and left absolutely no doubt that all this is intentional, and not merely cloak-and-dagger Bureaucrats running amok.



P.S. Note the source of this scathing editorial: the Corporate media. When even the corrupt mainstream media finds fault with our Traitor Governments, we know they have done something especially despicable.





Bill to Restrict N.S.A. Data Collection Blocked in Vote by Senate Republicans

www.nytimes.com/2014/11/19/us/nsa-phone-records.html?_r=1

WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans on Tuesday blocked a sweeping overhaul of the once-secret National Security Agency program that collects records of Americans’ phone calls in bulk.

Democrats and a handful of Republicans who supported the measure failed to secure the 60 votes they needed to take up the legislation. The vote was 58 to 42 for consideration.

Senator Patrick J. Leahy, the Vermont Democrat who drafted the bill, blamed what he said was fear-mongering by the bill’s opponents for its defeat. “Fomenting fear stifles serious debate and constructive solutions,” he said. “This nation deserves more than that.”

Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, worked hard to defeat the bill, which had the support of the Obama administration and a coalition of technology companies including Apple, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo...

Here (once again) is a rather long passage to characterize as a "notable quote", since it doesn't have the eye-catching brevity which we associate with most of the notable quotes in our (original) Notable Quotes section.

But the purpose with quoting this excerpt, and the purpose of most of the Lindbergh excerpts I'm presenting here is not simply to verify what I describe in my own writing today, but to demonstrate (via Lindbergh) that even 100 YEARS AGO, these criticisms were already dominant realities in our societies...



All things demonstrate what happens when we accept the kept press falsehoods for truth, believe in the adroit schemes of the wealthy and listen with open mouths to the speeches of Congressmen whose statesmanship consists of sacrificing their constituents in return for kept press support and good committee appointments, and having the privilege of naming their political chums to fat office – these in turn for telling us whom and what to vote for.

We see the national catastrophe when we measure the work of these Congressmen – some of them called “Grand Old Men.” They have served grandly and long the demands of the profiteers. The misfortunes of the people and the peril of the nation are too solemn for jest; but in spite of catastrophe the pretended wise and good Congressmen, their pompous parade for our votes and our blind following, make us look like jokes when we analyze THEIR acts and measure them by OUR votes.


P.S. Note how Lindbergh describes the slack-jawed Zombies of his own era:

[They]...listen with open mouths to the speeches of Congressmen whose statesmanship consists of sacrificing their own constituents.

Jeff Nielson created a new topic Ukraine's "gold is gone" (stolen) in the forums.
This news will come as a surprise to no one here, since I have long pointed out that one of the reasons for these Fascists overthrowing the governments of (for example) Iraq, Libya, and (now) Ukraine was to steal their gold. We also know the REASON why the One Bank is so intent on stealing large quantities of gold: to (partially) re-fill its empty warehouses, in order to DELAY either a (formal) inventory default or an (informal) Decoupling in the gold market.

Phantom Gold Inventories: Has The Comex Already Defaulted?
Gold Market Secretly Decoupling
Decoupling In Precious Metals Markets
Economic Rape of Europe Nearly Complete, Part II

If there IS a "surprise" here, it's that the Fascists were sloppy enough to allow this news to slip out. (As far as I know) there has been no public acknowledgements (by their respective governments) that the gold of Iraq, Libya, and Greece is all gone/stolen. For other nations which still have large quantities of gold, even (supposed) "allies" of the U.S. (like Greece); the message here is clear: WATCH YOUR BACK.

Further indicating how desperate the One Bank is getting -- again -- is news that it's once again pressuring India's government to RE-IMPOSE tight restrictions on gold imports. This is laughable, for two reasons.

First of all; all the empirical evidence from the the FIRST time it engaged in this economic blackmail indicates that the move CAUSED more problems for the Banksters than it solved. Secondly, there is no reason to believe that (official) restrictions on Indian gold imports will do ANYTHING to slow down the (unofficial) flow of gold into that nation -- via smuggling.

How India Evaded The One Bank’s Gold-Embargo
Gold-Squeeze In India Stokes Silver Demand

There are several conclusions which we can draw from all of this:

1) The One Bank is becoming increasingly concerned/desperate with respect to the issue of inventory default in the gold market (and likely the silver market as well).
2) It has ran out of (original) schemes/ideas to delay implosion in the gold market, and now just repeats old schemes.
3) It is RUNNING OUT of gold which can/could still be stolen.

The Countdown continues...

India readies draconian gold import rules

www.mining.com/india-readies-draconian-n...-import-rules-67511/

Long the top importer of gold, India fell behind China in 2013.

The decline in gold consumption came after bullion import duties were pushed up tenfold – from 1% at the start of 2012 to 10% – and other rules such as mandatory re-export of 20% of imports, transaction taxes and even curbs on ETF buying stymied India's gold industry.

The measures worked as intended, bringing down the country's current account deficit and shoring up the rupee. But optimism after the election of business-friendly prime minister Narendra Modi and after the government allowed certain jewellery trading houses to start importing again saw imports surge.

In October Indian jewellers and traders imported 150 tonnes from just 25 tonnes this time last year worth reports Reuters:

"We are working on it. The measures to slow gold imports are almost ready and may be announced today or tomorrow," said the source, who declined to be named because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Officials from the finance ministry and Reserve Bank of India (RBI) were considering whether to reimpose import restrictions on "star trading houses" that were eased earlier this year, the source said.

The new measure could be imposing new restrictions on these trading houses, tightening the import-export ratio to 70:30 or even 60:40, and raising the import duties again, but making the rules too draconian only encourages increased smuggling...

Jeff Nielson created a new topic Israeli editorial: defending GENOCIDE in the forums.
This is actually a somewhat older piece from SCGnews.com (from August), but something so shocking/heinous that it's still worth covering

It's certainly possible that some readers/Members may find my characterization of Israel's political/military policies as "slow genocide" to be hyperbolic. However, those people may want to re-think their position after reading this article (from an Israel newspaper) "explaining" how/when/why genocide is NECESSARY, titled...

When Genocide Is PERMISSIBLE

Naturally this culture of Murderers wouldn't come right out and advocate the slaughter of the last, few million Palestinians. Rather, they frame this plotted, mass crime-against-humanity rhetorically:

I will conclude with a question for all the humanitarians out there. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu clearly stated at the outset of this incursion that his objective is to restore a sustainable quiet for the citizens of Israel. We have already established that it is the responsibility of every government to ensure the safety and security of its people. If political leaders and military experts determine that the only way to achieve its goal of sustaining quiet is through genocide is it then permissible to achieve those responsible goals?

All of those well-respected Terrorists who comprise Israel's apartheid regime don't want people to think (know) that they WANT to perpetrate genocide against the captive, defenseless Palestinian population. Rather, these demented Psychopaths want to frame their crime-against-humanity as being something they are "forced to do".



The Slow-Genocide will continue...

Thanks for the post, TA.

This is even MORE disturbing than the other "globalization" trade pacts which have come before this. This becomes immediately apparent when we view what is the reported AGENDA of this so-called "trade agreement".

The following list of issues addressed by this treaty is from a Malaysian news source...

• domestic court decisions and international legal standards (e.g., overriding domestic laws on both trade and nontrade matters, foreign investors’ right to sue governments in international tribunals that would overrule the national sovereignty)

• environmental regulations (e.g., nuclear energy, pollution, sustainability)

• financial deregulation (e.g., more power and privileges to the bankers and financiers)

• food safety (e.g., lowering food self-sufficiency, prohibition of mandatory labeling of genetically modified products, or bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) or mad cow disease)

• Government procurement (e.g., no more buy locally produced/grown)

• Internet freedom (e.g., monitoring and policing user activity)

• labour (e.g., welfare regulation, workplace safety, relocating domestic jobs abroad)

• patent protection, copyrights (e.g., decrease access to affordable medicine)

• public access to essential services may be restricted due to investment rules (e.g., water, electricity, and gas)


Now (on the one hand) if we could actually TRUST our Traitor Governments to negotiate for our benefit rather than for our enslavement, this is the only way to draw-up a proper "free trade" agreement. We must harmonize our economies so that we are all playing on a level field.

However, having DECADES of proof that our Traitor Governments do nothing but conspire against us (and for the Banksters they serve); we know in advance that any "comprehensive" treaty of this nature would be solely for the purpose of completing the destruction of our societies -- and not elevating the societies of less-advanced cultures.

This is GLOBAL FEUDALISM, plain and simple -- turning our planet into a hovel for 7 billion Serfs...and a paradise for a few thousand (hundred?) Oligarchs.

Definitely some classic verse there, Dylan. One of the unfortunate consequences of the loss of our prosperity is the devolution of "the arts", and music, in particular.

Jeff Nielson created a new topic Charles Lindbergh's Notable Quotes in the forums.
As I suggested I might do; I have decided that Republican Congressman, Charles Lindbergh Sr. (1859 - 1924) deserves his own "notable quotes" section, for several reasons:

1) He has a superb comprehension of economic dynamics.
2) He has a passion for social and economic justice.
3) He is very clear/eloquent in expressing these dynamics and injustices.
4) As someone who died nearly a century ago; the views he expresses are eerily/explicitly PROPHETIC of what we now see very clearly in our own era.

One year before he died; he published The Economic Pinch (aka "Lindbergh on the Federal Reserve"). It is a brilliant and precise description of everything that is wrong with our economies today, why it is wrong, and how we can reclaim the wealth/prosperity which WE, THE PEOPLE produce but "the Profiteers" now (endlessly) steal from us.

As you see Lindbergh describe in extensive detail the evils of our current economic oppression (and the Oppressors who created this economic yoke); never forget that everything you read here was written nearly 100 years ago. For those not (previously) familiar with the name "Charles Lindbergh" (except for his son, the much-hyped aviator); Lindbergh Sr. is attributed with being the source for The Bankers' Manifesto of 1892.

The Bankers’ Manifesto of 1892

Most of the following quotes will be taken fro The Economic Pinch, but there will be some quotes taken from his earlier speeches/observations, since (fortunately) he was extensively quoted in his own era.
Nov 14
I meant to post this yesterday, but after replying to other discussions I forgot to do so. There are two points to note here.

First of all; when Russia buys gold aggressively, this not only increases its own economic power, it really annoys the banksters -- Russia's real enemy. So it's a policy which provides a lot of bang-for-the-ruble. The second point to note here is that Russia is also a major producer of gold.

So (like China) we must suspect that little if any of its domestically mined gold ever leaves the country. And thus (like China) we must suspect that Russia's actual gold reserves are considerably higher than what it officially declares.

For those not aware of this point, let me make it one more time. When nations add to their gold reserves from a domestic source (any domestic source); they are not required to officially report such transactions, and thus not required to DECLARE any gold they have added from domestic sources. Conversely, all gold purchased in international markets must be reported in a timely manner.

Russia's "official" gold reserves are about 1,000 tonnes. But it could easily have double that amount, depending on when it began to add gold from domestic sources. In the case of China, it's much easier to see when their "gold rush" began, because in 2004 China suddenly/radically began ramping-up its gold production.

This is all just an extension of the Golden Rule:

He who has the gold makes the rules.



P.S. Note the next biggest buyers of gold: former satellite states of the Soviet Union, who still have close ties to Moscow.


Putin stockpiles gold as Russia prepares for economic war

www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/commodities/...or-economic-war.html

Russia's central bank added to its reserves of bullion in the third quarter, according to the latest report from the World Gold Council

Russia has taken advantage of lower gold prices to pack the vaults of its central bank with bullion as it prepares for the possibility of a long, drawn-out economic war with the West.

The latest research from the World Gold Council reveals that the Kremlin snapped up 55 tonnes of the precious metal - far more than any other nation - in the three months to the end of September as prices began to weaken.

Vladimir Putin's government is understood to be hoarding vast quantities of gold, having tripled stocks to around 1,150 tonnes in the last decade. These reserves could provide the Kremlin with vital firepower to try and offset the sharp declines in the rouble.

Russia's currency has come under intense pressure since US and European sanctions and falling oil prices started to hurt the economy. Revenues from the sale of oil and gas account for about 45pc of the Russian government's budget receipts.

The biggest buyers of gold after Russia are other countries from the Commonwealth of Independent States, led by Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan...

When you consider that in the last 7 months or so there have been around 1700 cases of Ebola and 900 deaths in the whole of W.Africa with a population of 250 million.
It is certainly not a pandemic at present and if nano-silver takes off it isn`t ever likely to be.


Those are the numbers? Lol!

Certainly this indicates that the Ebola scare is being exaggerated by the Western media. It also further increases suspicions about the U.S. cases.

Foreign health-care providers have been on the scene for previous Ebola outbreaks. There were never any occurrences of the disease after they had returned home (and with ridiculously lax quarantine procedures on top of it).

www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-12/economic-end-game-explained

TA, I was wildly enthusiastic about some parts of this article, so I'll post that excerpt first:

[After quoting all the pseudo-experts who laughed at the possibility of a "crash" in 1929)

[quote]I hear nearly identical statements from pro-mainstream, pro-dollar skeptics all the time. And all of their assertions rest solely on the illusion of the Dow and the dollar index, not to mention statistics that are sourced from the very government that has much to gain by fooling the public into believing all is well.

In 2009, Paul Krugman, perhaps the worst and most famous economist of our age, lamented on the fact that no one in mainstream finance saw the derivatives and credit crash coming. Yet it is the same kinds of manipulative policies that Krugman champions that caused this collective ignorance in mainstream circles to begin with.

What the past proves, time and time again, is that establishment trained and educated economists are perhaps the most useless of all analysts. They are perpetually wrong. Only independent analysts have ever been able to predict anything of value as far as our economic future — not because they are psychic, but because they have the advantage of standing outside the foggy propaganda of brainwashed financial academia.

It also proves that the appearance of prosperity means nothing if the fundamentals do not support the optimism. That is to say, a bullish stock market, a high dollar index and a low unemployment percentage mean nothing if such stats are generated by false methods and fiat. The fundamentals ALWAYS matter. As we saw during the Great Depression, the markets cannot hide from reality forever.[/quote]

This is all bang-on, especially the middle paragraph. However, after that (in my opinion) this analyst goes astray:

The plan is to introduce a basket currency system as an alternative to the dollar as world reserve, then slowly but surely phase out all sovereign currencies until the basket becomes a currency itself - the ONLY currency. Former World Bank Chief Economist Justin Yifu Lin seems to agree with this ideology, arguing that national currencies must be replaced with a supranational currency, and pointing out that no single currency has the strength to stand alone as world reserve...

Yes, Western banksters would very much like to cobble together another, totally fraudulent "currency" to replace their worthless/debauched Western currencies -- and call it "reserve currency". The problem is that China (and the Rest of the World) won't allow this.

Now some might argue that it's me who is "reading the tea leaves" incorrectly here. However, because I was interested in what this guy had to say, I did some more reading -- another one of his commentaries which was linked to in this one.

And this is what I found:

With the end of the Federal Reserve taper now complete, and questions circling as to when interest rates will be raised, a market volatility not seen since 2008-2009 is returning.

This is all, entirely delusional.

1) There has been no "tapering". Every dollar which the Fed Liars have pretended to "taper" they have replaced with counterfeiting.

Federal Reserve Increases Counterfeiting
Debunking Tapering Mythology

2) Western governments (and their central bank Masters) can/will NEVER "raise interest rates", because doing so would quickly bankrupt all these Deadbeat regimes with higher interest payments.

Thus we have yet another commentator with good reasoning skills, and a good grasp of economic fundamentals, and even a partial knowledge of all the scams/lies/frauds taking place. But because he still lives inside the Wonderland Matrix, what he says is basically worthless -- because it's almost impossible to tell where the "sound analysis" ends and the delusions begin.

There was another excerpt (which I can't find at the moment) where he referred to Western bond markets as being legitimate -- and even talked about these worthless bonds (already priced at the highest levels in history) "increasing in value".



When viewing the thoughts of (especially) commentators in the Alternative Media we can never allow ourselves to be "cheerleaders". What I mean by that is we must ALWAYS begin with our focus on the parts of an analysis which are weak/flawed. It is only if we fail to find such flaws/weaknesses, or we are able to dismiss the flaws/weaknesses as "minor" that we can extract any value from the good parts of these analyses.

Conversely, with any/every commentary which does contain some major flaw (even only one), this generally invalidates the ENTIRE piece.

Jeff Nielson replied to the topic Re: ISIS Unveils Its New Gold-Backed Currency in the forums.
Good post Debsyl!

And I understand your sentiments entirely: the "Enemy of my Enemy" is not necessarily my friend. We can applaud another move to undermine the USD (and the One Bank's whole, fraudulent system) without applauding the entity which is engaging in this move. It's very similar to how I commend the actions of China (frequently), then add the caveat that China's government only appears "benign" when stacked against our own traitorous, wholly corrupt regimes.



I also agree with you that this is one possible "reason" why the U.S. has stopped supporting/funding/arming ISIS, and made it the new Boogeyman. However, I would suggest different causality.

As pointed out in the wonderfully documented clip at SCGNews.com; creating nasty "terrorist" entities, and then demonizing/attacking them is one of the oldest "plays" in the U.S. Playbook. Thus ISIS didn't need to engage in any provocative move in order to become the new Boogeyman -- it was always "in the cards".

Rather, I see as much more likely that this is a REACTION by ISIS to the betrayal by their (former) Benefactor -- the U.S. government. How do you strike back at these back-stabbers, when you (obviously) can't confront them militarily? By an economic attack.

Obvioiusly ISIS knows (as well as anyone) that Gaddhafi's plan (in Libya) to create a "gold-backed African currency" is what got him killed -- as being the proverbial "stake through the heart" of this Vampire. Obviously nothing they can do (really do) can make them more of an Enemy, so why not do what they can to strike back at the U.S.??

Jeff Nielson replied to the topic Re: The death of money on November 16, 2014? in the forums.
Desyl, I found this piece very interesting and well-reasoned. The writer engages in all of the necessary steps here to produce a sound analysis.

a) Definition of terms
b) Provides detailed information/evidence
c) Lays out the premises in support of his conclusion methodically and EXPLICITLY.

The advantage of seeing a properly constructed argument is that we have all the information necessary to accept or reject the conclusion. The methodology for doing so is always the same. Are there are missing premises (i.e. assumptions)? Is any premise faulty in one way or another?

When I look at the argument; I answer "no" to both of those questions. Now let's focus on the conclusion/title: "the death of money". When we look through the context of the argument (carefully); what we see the writer pointing is not how/why the UK currency MUST "die" on November 16th, but how/why it can die on that date (or any day afterward).

People here have read similar, previous commentaries from myself, where I construct very similar arguments about the "death" of Western currencies in general, and the USD in particular. Indeed, after doing my post about the currency-swap between China and Canada; I immediately penned a title for a (near) future commentary: "Death of the Dollar". Lol!

And recall that the UK government has already announced that it is starting to denominate its own bonds in RENMINBI. As I pointed out when I did a commentary on that blockbuster announcement; this essentially is an acknowledgment by the UK government that the renminbi is superior to its own currency.

I also found his hypothetical of people (literally) "storing their money" in a warehouse versus keeping it in a bank to be delightful. The arithmetic and logic in that hypothetical is impeccable. Obviously with the Thieves CHARGING PEOPLE in order to hold their deposits in banks, NO ONE should hold any money in these banks.

That doesn't mean that all this will happen. If the Zombies behaved logically (lol!!!); our world would look much, much different today. All that is being pointed out here is the legal ramifications of this new UK declaration, AND what the logical consequences of this announcement should be.

Good stuff!

Well as you know I'm a Catholic. Here are some interesting ones to note:

Prophecy of St Nilus (see link)

www.traditioninaction.org/Questions/B249_StNilus.html



Bishop George Michael Wittman (d. 1833)


"Woe is me! Sad days are at hand for the Holy Church of Jesus Christ. The Passion of Jesus will be renewed in the most dolorous manner in the Church and in her Supreme Head. In all parts of the world there will be wars and revolutions, and much blood will be spilled. Distress, disasters, and poverty will everywhere be great, since pestilential maladies, scarcity, and other misfortunes will follow one another.
"Violent hands will be laid on the Supreme Head of the Catholic Church; bishops and priests will be persecuted, and schisms will be provoked, and confusion reign amid all classes. Times will come, so pre-eminently bad, that it will seem as if the enemies of Christ and of His Holy Church, which He founded with His blood, were about to triumph over her. But the priesthood will remain firm and resolute, and good people will adhere faithfully to that body. A general separation will be made. The wheat shall be winnowed, and the floor swept. SECRET SOCIETIES WILL WORK GREAT RUIN AND EXERCISE A MARVELOUS MONETARY POWER, and through that many will be blinded, and infected with most horrible errors; however, all this shall avail naught. Christ says, He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who gathereth not with Me, scattereth. Scandals will be but too rife, and woe to those by whom they come! Although the tempests will be terrible, and will turn many in their passage, nevertheless they cannot shake the rock whereon Christ has founded His Church: "Portae inferi non prevalebunt."
"The faithful sheep will gather together, and in unions of prayer will offer potent resistance to the enemies of the Catholic Church. Yes, yes, the flock will become small. A marvelous thing will occur, but then hell will rise in opposition against it, and terrible agitation will ensue. Great confusion will reign amid princes and nations. The incredulity of the present day is preparing those horrid evils."


Sr Jeanne le Royer 1798


"Woe ! Woe ! Woe to the last century !
Here is what God wanted to show me in his Light. I began looking in the light of God, the century which must begin in 1800; I saw by this light that judgement wasn't there, and that it wouldn't be the last century. I considered, thanks to the same light, the century of 1900, until the end, to see positively if it would be the last. Our Lord made me know, and at the same time made me doubt, if it would be at the end of the century of 1900, or in that of 2000. But what I saw, it is that if the judgment arrived in the century of 1900, it would come only towards the end, and that if the world exceeds this century, the first two decades of the century of 2000 will not pass without the judgment intervening, as I saw it in the light of God."

(Vie et Révélations de Sœur de la Nativité, Charles Genet, book IV, pp. 125-126)

Sister Madeleine Pourcain who died a Poor Clare in 1843 foresaw "Confusion, Confusion, even among the priests".
Sister Madeleine also foresaw a "commercial crisis which would see the whole world bankrupt"

Seemingly not long to wait to verify!



Let me make one thing clear to everyone here, although I think I've made this admission before. I'm a very superstitious guy, myself (lol!). While I'm not "religious" in the classical sense; I fully believe there are (unseen) "powerful forces" at work in the Universe.

Where I have problems embracing any religion is that if there is a "God" (more than one?); I simply find it impossible to believe that he/she/it is a benevolent Being. Could there be an organism(s) in the Universe so much more advanced than us as to appear to be a diety? It's certainly possible. I just see no evidence that it (they?) is our Friend.

So I watch/listen carefully any time I see genuine efforts at prophesy. And the only time I simply dismiss it without consideration is when I see some of the buzzwords (or other calling-cards) indicating that the material is disinformation -- and thus not sincere.

Now with respect to "Judgment Day", again I have a problem. If such a concept exists, the parallel is obvious. It's like a parent who (deliberately/neglectfully) leaves his/her children unsupervised for a very long time, and then upon returning gives some/most (all?) of them the Mother of All Spankings. Lol!

Who is really at fault in that scenario? The parent(s). Any being(s) who (through its own arrogance) could fail to see the Truth of that scenario could not/cannot possibly be a (real) God. We eliminate "corporal punishment" with respect to our own children, while our "God" hands out Eternal Damnation (without hesitation) to his/her own Children???

Who is the "superior being"???

Jeff Nielson created a new topic China completes "currency swap" with CANADA in the forums.
This is another BIG step in the demise of the Dollar. Readers/Members will recall the previous "big step" I reported on previously: the UK government has started issuing its own bonds denominated in renminbi -- not pounds or dollars.

You should also be familiar with many previous reports (and commentaries) detailing China's "currency swaps" with many other nations. These currency-swaps are where China trades its own renminbi for USD instruments held by another nation.

The other nation then uses those new renminbi to conduct (some of) its own trade, while China has "drained the swamp" (i.e. the global economy) of more worthless/unwanted dollars. At the same time; each time China completes a currency-swap it adds to its own DOLLAR HOARD, which (as I've previously pointed out) is a powerful economic shield/insurance policy to protect it against U.S. economic terrorism.

Previously, these currency-swaps have all been with Asian neighbours or non-aligned natiions from the Rest of the World. But now it has completed a currency-swap with Canada. As we know Stephen "the Lap Dog" Harper won't blow his nose without first asking permission from his (our) American Masters.

And the U.S. government won't blow its own nose without first asking for permission from the One Bank. Thus we see the Banksters (once again) showing that they see no alternative to the Death of the Dollar, and so they, themselves, have begun to jump on the renminbi bandwagon.

With the One Bank being essentially the only force in our world which prevents positive reform/change, with the One Bank itself now cooperating in the demise of the dollar; it's Death is now carved in stone.




Petrodollar Panic? China Signs Currency Swap Deal With Qatar & Canada

www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-10/petrod...ap-deal-qatar-canada

The march of global de-dollarization continues. In the last few days, China has signed direct currency agreements with Canada becoming North America's first offshore RMB hub, which CBC reports analysts suggest "could double maybe even triple the level of Canadian trade between Canada and China," impacting the need for Dollars.But that is not the week's biggest Petrodollar precariousness news, as The Examiner reports, a new chink in the petrodollar system was forged as China signed an agreement with Qatar to begin direct currency swaps between the two nations using the Yuan, and establishing the foundation for new direct trade with the OPEC nation in the very heart of the petrodollar system. As Simon Black warns, "It’s happening... with increasing speed and frequency."...

Thanks for your comments Jeff.

Another dimension to throw into the mix is the theological.

Concomitant with the massive steal of the world's wealth as you identify, is an effort to destroy religion...



Matthew 7:15

"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."

Forgive if I have strayed outside permissable bounds here Jeff, but there is clearly something contiguous between the money power and "dark religion". The macabre activities at Bohemian Grove also testify of this.


TA, I edited-out the middle of what you posted in my reply, because the parts that "resonated" with me were the beginning and the end.



Is the Old World Order seeking to "destroy religion", as it pillages all of the world's wealth? My answer would be a qualified "yes".

Yes, I think the Psychopaths (in general terms) are seeking to undermine each-and-every social institution we have, to destroy "community", and to undermine our personal connections/bonds. Here the obvious example is their relentless campaign to destroy/undermine "the family unit".

"Feminism" was a creation of the Oligarchs, and it had two purposes:

1) Create a divide-and-conquer wedge between the two genders, to make them (at least somewhat) more antagonistic toward each other.
2) CONSCRIPT women into the workplace. This had two purposes. Further weaken the family unit (by denying children a full-time parent), and HIDING the collapse in our standard of living -- as two spouses replaced the "one income" Middle Class family unit.

But the only religion openly "targeted for destruction" is Islam, because Islam (alone among major religions) institutionalizes "sharing the wealth" -- the three-word phrase which enrages the Psychopaths more than any other word/phrase in the English language. Their "Crusade" is now over 1,000 years long (and counting).

With respect to other religions; their modus operandi is similar to their modus operandi in most of what they do: infiltrate-and-corrupt. The Catholic Church (in particular) has been used as a tool of oppression at various times.

Obviously even these Oligarchs cannot "corrupt a religion". But they can corrupt people; what they've done to our governments (and so-called "regulators") speaks for itself. And not all their Puppets began their careers with corruption in their minds.

To believe that our political leaders can be corrupted but our religious leaders are (somehow) immune is (in my opinion, at least) a naive perspective. With the Psychopaths themselves being WHITE and xenophobic; I would strongly suspect that they would much prefer seeking to use-and-corrupt the religions favored by 'their own people'.

This brings me to the last part of what I quoted.

By the very nature of their "Faith"; people with strong religious convictions are especially vulnerable to disinformation. One obvious reason is that ALL religions contain some degree of prophesy.

And nothing could come more naturally to the Psychopaths than posing as False Prophets (i.e. getting their Stooges to do so). Whether that means attempting to foist some False Messiah upon us, OR simply keeping people "of faith" confused/disorganized with endless, bogus "prophesy"; either way they can use your religion against you.

I preach (extreme) Skepticism as my mantra when viewing any Alternative Media materials. With mainstream literature we have no need for "skepticism" -- we know it's all lies.



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

With respect to religious "news" in the Alternative Media; I recommend Skepticism "squared". Lol!!!

Jeff Nielson replied to the topic Re: Jeff Nielson, for Sprott Money: in the forums.
For those who may not have seen it already; there's a new/recent thread on the "Ebola outbreak" (started by Dylan), upon which this commentary is largely based.



Silver Versus Ebola: A Medical Revolution?

www.sprottmoney.com/news/silver-versus-e...on-sprott-money-news

For centuries, humanity has utilized “colloidal silver” to treat disease and infection, and to prevent disease and infection. Colloidal silver is (primarily) an internal medical treatment, created by immersing particles of silver in a colloidal solution.

Before the invention of antibacterial soap, colloidal silver was used as a disinfectant. It is still commonly used to kill bacteria…In ancient times silver was used in wound dressings and it was frequently used for the same purposes in America following the Civil War. It is also why churches use silver chalices in Communion to stop disease spreading through the congregation…
