It’s Black Friday which means the US is flooded with videos of its favorite pastime: mauls in the malls, as vicious brawls and fights break out among total strangers across across America’s countless retail outlets.
Mike Maloney author, truth teller and founder of GoldSilver.com joins me to discuss all things precious metals and the economy as we celebrate the release of Episode 6 in his ‘Hidden Secrets of Money’ series: The Rollercoaster Crash
Investors looking to acquire 2015 Silver Eagles may just have a few more weeks to purchase the coins. If demand for Silver Eagles by the Authorized Dealers and investors remain strong over the next several weeks, we could see a record 47 million of the coins sold this year.
It’s out with the old and in with the new. Earlier today, Nov. 24, the United States Mint announced that it would stop producing 2015 American Eagle silver bullion coins by Dec. 11 and that it would begin taking orders for the first 2016-dated issues on Jan. 11.
Having an opportunity to speak with a person in Europe, specifically in Switzerland, allows for a different perspective. Claudio Grass, Managing Director, Global Gold lives in Switzerland and has a birds eye view of the events unfolding in Europe.
The conversation you about to hear covers a wide variety of topics that can not be delivered in twenty second sound bites. Claudio does a marvelous job of introducing us to some of the history and development that has lead to the events in Syria, Paris and the Middle East. We take a look at how this is effecting the everyday citizen, in Switzerland, with the flood of refugees coming into Europe. How are the Swiss handling this situation and what are the implications of the Paris attacks?
The US military has long claimed that their assault on the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) hospital in Afghanistan was just an unfortunate mistake. However, the facts surrounding this incident seem to fly in the face of reason. The hospital had repeatedly made its presence known to Afghan and American forces in the lead up to their assault on the City of Kunduz, and they were bombed for over an hour as staff members called US officials, begging them to stop the attack. It’s no surprise that MSF immediately called the strike a “war crime” and demanded an international investigation.
It’s also not surprising that the US government has done nothing to facilitate that investigation. Instead, they conducted their own in-house investigation, which as we all know would be completely impartial and without any conflict of interest. Here’s what that investigation has yielded so far.
Afshin Rattansi goes underground with John Pilger. Award winning journalist and author, John Pilger talks to us about how Washington, London and Paris gave birth to ISIS-Daesh. Plus we examine the media’s role in spreading disinformation ahead of a vote in Parliament for UK bombing of Syria. Afshin looks at the Autumn Statement and why in a time of high alert we are cutting the police force and buying drones. Also we look at which companies are benefitting from the budget. Plus Afshin is joined once again by former MP and broadcaster, Lembit Opik, to look at the weeks news from a cyber sinking feeling over Trident to budget boosts for the BBC.
Consider this clipping from the August 1932 San Francisco Chronicle newspaper:
“Reduction of salaries of municipal employees and limitation of city positions to only one member of a household will be sought by (Supervisor) Adolph Uhl in two amendments to the San Francisco charter. The salary reductions would run from 2.5% for the lowest bracket to 25% on salaries of $500 a month or more.”
Thanks to the handy BLS Inflation Calculator we know that $500 a month in 1932 is the equivalent of $8,680 per month (about $104,000) a year.
Yemeni protesters have staged a rally outside the Russian Embassy in the capital Sana’a for the seventh consecutive week. They have renewed calls on Moscow to help stop Saudi Arabia’s invasion of Yemen.
With the world closest to World War 3 since the cold war era and Russia about to unleash escalating sanctions of Turkey, it makes perfect sense that ‘investors’ would want to purge themselves of precious metals. Someone decided that Friday after Thanksgiving would be the perfect time to dump over 18,000 contracts (around $1.9 billion notional) sending the price of gold futures to their lowest since Oct 2010, below what Goldman called a “crucial level.”
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts joins me to discuss the absurdity of the Paris Attack which is playing out just as Dr. Roberts expected. Like 9/11, the Paris “ISIS attacks” are being used to destroy people’s civil liberties in the name of “protecting them”. It’s the same worn out story propelled by the same CIA mockingbird media that’s been in control since John F Kennedy was murdered by the deep state. When will humanity wake up?
Over 600 Democrat politicians from 32 states have joined together to oppose the centerpiece of Pres. Obama’s climate change agenda, the Clean Power Plan.
“As Democrats committed to a prosperous America and a healthy environment, we believe the United States has a unique opportunity to lead the world in addressing the global climate challenge, and yet do so, as we must, without unduly burdening the American economy or the American people,” the Democratic coalition called CoalBlue said in a letter sent Tuesday to Obama.
“The letter was signed by 626 state and local officials from nearly three dozen states, including 177 state legislators, 278 local elected officials and 148 Democratic Party officials,” the Washington Examiner reports.
