U.S. Propaganda: SONY Hack Was A Practice Run For North Korea, Next Attack Power Grid

from X22Report:

Episode 546


from SGT

I caught up with Miles Franklin’s Andy Hoffman today just after he recorded his latest audio blog-cast titled Laughable FOMC Statement Sets New Central Bank Credibility Low Until the SNB One. And Andy has never been more alarmed by what we have witnessed unfolding over just the past two weeks. The global economic system is literally coming apart at the seams.

While talking about this week’s “meaningless” FOMC statement and the Swiss National Bank taking interest rates negative, Andy says the powers that be are “terrified” that it’s all coming apart and he describes their fear as “unprecedented”. This is a must listen conversation as we document the collapse for this third week of December, 2014.


The International Criminal Banking System – And The United States – Is Now In The Process Of Collapsing.

Here are the latest, most dramatic signs of it:

– CME Implements $400 wide gold circuit breakers for vast price swings
– U.S Treasury seeks ‘Survival Kits’ for Federal Bank Examiners
– U.S. Taxpayers Now On The Hook For $303 TRILLION in Wall Street Derivatives

We Should All Be Worried About Russia

by Jason Simpkins, Outsider Club:

Russia is in dire straits.

We all know that at this point. The collapse of its currency, the ruble, dominated the news cycle earlier this week. And to be honest, it was hard not to enjoy it.

After all, this is what Vladimir Putin has been asking for.

Despite all of his denials and propaganda, Russia invaded Ukraine and took Crimea.

For months now, Putin has thumbed his nose at the West, scoffing at sanctions, ignoring ceasefires, playing up his ties with China, and brandishing his country’s nuclear arsenal. He sent warships to Australia, fighter jets to the Caribbean, and submarines to Sweden.

Dear Leader Angry: Defiant North Korea Says Can Prove It Is Not Behind Hack “Without Resorting To Torture Like The CIA”

from ZeroHedge:

Surely, the punchline is that even a tiny backwater, dictatorship can now make fun of US “moral high ground” courtesy of the recent CIA torture disclosure. “We have a way to prove that we have nothing to do with the case without resorting to torture, as what the C.I.A. does,the North Korea statement said. Oops.

The Oil Price Crash Of 2014 – Richard Heinberg

by Dmitry Babich, The News Doctors:

Oil prices have fallen by half since late June. This is a significant development for the oil industry and for the global economy, though no one knows exactly how either the industry or the economy will respond in the long run. Since it’s almost the end of the year, perhaps this is a good time to stop and ask: (1) Why is this happening? (2) Who wins and who loses over the short term?, and (3) What will be the impacts on oil production in 2015?

1. Why is this happening?: Euan Mearns does a good job of explaining the oil price crash here. Briefly, demand for oil is softening (notably in China, Japan, and Europe) because economic growth is faltering. Meanwhile, the US is importing less petroleum because domestic supplies are increasing—almost entirely due to the frantic pace of drilling in “tight” oil fields in North Dakota and Texas…

Russian Roulette: Taxpayers Could Be on the Hook for Trillions in Oil Derivatives

by Ellen Brown, Web of Debt:

The sudden dramatic collapse in the price of oil appears to be an act of geopolitical warfare against Russia. The result could be trillions of dollars in oil derivative losses; and the FDIC could be liable, following repeal of key portions of the Dodd-Frank Act last weekend.

Senator Elizabeth Warren charged Citigroup last week with “holding government funding hostage to ram through its government bailout provision.” At issue was a section in the omnibus budget bill repealing the Lincoln Amendment to the Dodd-Frank Act, which protected depositor funds by requiring the largest banks to push out a portion of their derivatives business into non-FDIC-insured subsidiaries.

More Sony Hack/North Korea Psyop Fun: Team America World Police Screenings Canceled

from TRUTHstreammedia:

Hey government and mainstream, lapdog establishment media: I thought we were supposed to be afraid of ISIS… Now it’s North Korea?

What a ridiculous reality we live in.

Right now the mainstream media is flooding the news cycle with story after story trying to rile people up about how the FBI has officially blamed North Korea for the Sony hack which led to the company canceling its scheduled release of the upcoming Seth Rogan movie “The Interview,” ostensibly to avoid terror attacks at theaters.

A Christmas Celebration of America’s ENDLESS LIES — Steve Quayle & Greg Evensen

from Hagmann & Hagmann Podcast:

Amid the twinkling of the Christmas lights and the shimmering glow emanating from the garland strung over the light posts across America, the captured corporate media is busily reassuring people that our economy is getting stronger, our country is moving forward in all important areas, and overall, the United States is better off today than at any other time in the recent past. Lies – all.

The lies are strong enough, large enough, and repeated often enough to convince the majority of a mind-numbed public that what they are seeing strung across the lampposts and Christmas trees in city squares is traditional holiday garland. Aided by normalcy bias, greed, and other psychological controls implemented at the hands of the global elite, most walk past the fully adorned Christmas trees at Rockefeller Center in New York and numerous city parks in the U.S., seeing garland hanging from the trees, exactly like they’ve been told. Having choosen to ignore the cries of the watchmen or having become fully entranced in the lie, what they’ve been convinced is the holiday decoration is neither decorative nor whimsical, but dull and taut. For what adorns the trees is not garland at all, but the thick and deadly rope hanging like swags, ignored by the masses while taunting the informed. Few see that at the end of each strand of rope is a hangman’s noose, ritualistically coiled thirteen times and awaiting the victims of the illusion. Join Steve Quayle and Greg Evensen as they unravel the coil of the hangman’s noose.

Russia Is Not Selling Gold, Bought 18t In November

by Bullion Baron, Bullion Star:

There are rumors doing the rounds that Russia is selling gold. My first reaction to this news was that is contradictory to what Putin stands for. Russia has been the most openly aggressive buyer of gold in the past years and Putin never made it a secret he wants to move away from the US dollar as the world reserve currency – gold potentially playing a role in a new monetary order. The last thing Russia wants to do is sell the asset they have demonstrated to value the most. Besides, the Russian central bank (CBR) also has other FX reserves that it could sell to support the Ruble, if it wants to intervene.

The rumors about Russia selling gold were spread by Yahoo, Business Insider, and Zero Hedge/SocGen. Two other bloggers already did the debunking for us; Market Update wrote about Yahoo’s article and Bron Suchecki just published a must read on Zero Hedge/SocGen/Business Insider.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts – Russia To Unleash Ultimate Black Swan Against The West

from KingWorldNews:

Dr. Roberts: “I was listening to the news today and there were all these self-righteous people just happy as all get out that they had finally stomped Russia into the ground and ‘Russia is now finished,’ and Russia was broken and ‘would soon be an American vassal state where it belongs.’ And I was listening to this rot and got to thinking, ‘How can people be so utterly stupid?’ But they are, and they are just as stupid in Washington.

And in the meantime, as part of this process, Eric, we may see Russia unleash black swans that bring down the Western house of cards….

Already Crummy US Economy Takes a Sudden Hit

from Wolf Street:

The Fed yesterday, in a fit of its typical though inexplicable optimism, raised its projection for economic growth. In September, it had projected that the US economy would grow between 2.0% and 2.2% in 2014. Now it raised its “central tendency” to a growth of 2.3% to 2.4%. That type of measly economic growth is far below the ever elusive escape velocity that Wall Street keeps promising without fail every year to justify sky-high stock valuations.

But now reality is once again mucking up our already not very rosy scenarios.

The service sector, the dominant force in the US economy, has taken another hit. Markit’s Services PMI Business Activity index slumped in December to 53.6, down from 56.2 in November. It’s now nearly 3 percentage points below the average over the last two years (56.4). And it is barely above the terrible growth rate in February (53.3), for which the polar vortex that had covered much of the nation was amply blamed.

2014 WORLD SILVER MINE SUPPLY: May Come In Less Than Official Estimates

by Charles Savoie, SRSrocco Report:

Global silver mine supply this year may turn out to be less than the official estimates.  GFMS released their 2014 Interim Report stating world silver mine supply is forecasted to increased 3.5% to 868 million oz (Moz) in 2014.  They included a world map in their report showing the net change in production from various countries.

According to GFMS 2014 Silver Interim Report:

On the supply side, mine production is forecast to reach all-time highs in the silver industry in 2014 as supply from Guatemala, Mexico, Chile and Peru increases. This is forecast to see primary supply increase by 3.5% in 2014 to 868 Moz. Total supply to the market is expected to increase more modestly as scrap supply continues to contract, with an estimated 14% decline in scrap leading to total supply of 1,131 Moz, a 2.9% increase year-on-year.

Dave Kranzler – Free Markets In This Country? ROFLMAO

by Dave Kranzler, Investment Research Dynamics:

There are no free markets in this country anymore, only interventions – Chris Powell, Treasurer of GATA

The latest sell-off from last week has resulted in a 3-day, 100+ point move in the S&P 500 (click to enlarge):

Take a look at that graph for a moment. It would be considered the 9th wonder of the world if it had been the result of true, laissez faire, interevention-free stock market. I posted a graph of the S&P 500 going all the way back to 1971 which shows how absurdly off the rails this current stock market has become. You can see that graph here: ROFLMAO.

Gold And Silver – Nothing Is Ever As It Seems And No Respite For PMs.

by Michael Noonan, Edge Trader Plus:

An eminent collapse of the US fiat petrodollar? China and Russia, with their enormous build-up of physical gold over the last several years, waiting in the wings to lead a new gold-backed currency? The growing BRICS alliance to unseat the elite’s Western NWO and its banking system?

A growing likelihood on the first question, and no and no to the latter two questions. In fact, the elites are probably doing more to destroy the fiat Federal Reserve “dollar” than any other group or alliance. There has been talk about the US destroying the dollar for at least the past four years. Kyle Bass even made the pronouncement whereby a senior Obama administration official told him, “We’re just going to kill the dollar.” That is exactly what is happening and coming from “inside information.”

A Time to Prepare

by Dr. Jeffrey Lewis, Silver-coin-investor:

The observation of modern finance through the lens of sound money requires an onion peeler. Each time I imagine onions, I think of my soft contact lens patients; the ones who abuse them. I think of the patients who wear them too long or through periods of mild irritation or redness and practice poor hygiene.

Soft contact lenses mask normal corneal sensitivity. They act like tiny onion goggles. With soft lenses in place, one can literally chop onions and not feel the normal irritating sensation at all. The problem is they tend to be the last to know about the trouble.
