DOH! Africa’s Largest Refinery Finds 2.7 Tons Of Gold “Missing” After Computer System Upgrade

from Zero Hedge:

It’s one thing to implicitly admit that there is a physical gold shortage and as a result nations – such as Germany – are unable to repatriate their physical gold held in the safe and trusted confines 90 feet below the NY Fed, gold which may or may not be there and has likely been leased out exponentially to cover paper shorts by virtually every BIS-overseen central bank (and the BIS paper gold selling team itself of course). It is something totally different to corzine, as in vaporize, 87,000 ounces of physical gold, some 2.7 tons, and blame it on a computer upgrade glitch. Which is precisely what Rand, Afrrica’s largest refinery and processor of about a third of the world’s gold since 1920, has done after it “discovered” that $113 million in precious metal was missing after “adopting a new computer system.”

Thoughts on the Documentary “America: Imagine the World Without Her”

by stephanie, TF Metals Report:

Powerful, compelling, and yes, flawed, Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary “America: Imagine the World Without Her” should be required viewing in classrooms across America regardless of its minor shortcomings.

It won’t be. The very people who need to see this film the most won’t even allow themselves to see it – even if they were given a free copy to watch and thus would not be “profiting” the film creator. If they do see it, they’ll be too consumed with their own pretentious snark to get it.

The irony is that these holdouts are the very victims of the big psychological “psy-op” that has been perpetrated on American youth since the 1960s – what D’Souza calls the “shaming” of America. And thus, so caught up in the manufactured shame and resultant rage against anyone who defends America, the well-meaning but brainwashed will miss out on an opportunity to get their implanted preconceptions challenged.

A pity.

Let me state for the record that I am not a “rah rah” American patriot who waves a flag no matter what my country does. I have deep and serious critiques about our government, its foreign policy, and the good intentions of the people in charge.

Ukraine’s FALSE FLAG Plane Shoot Down

from Brother Nathanael:

[Ed. Note: Look, facts are facts. The Ukrainian and US governments appear to be LYING about MH17 in order to frame Putin for its demise. At the time of posting here this video had 1,432 thumbs up and 38 thumbs down on You Tube. As a former Jew turned Christian, Brother Nathanael has unique personal history relating to this subject matter. That said, we do NOT hold the view that all people of Jewish dissent or of the Jewish religion are “the problem”. In fact, as we have reported many Jews are directly aligned against Zionism. And there’s the rub, we do think that Zionism in government is a troubling issue. Joe Biden is an avowed Zionist. John McCain is an avowed Zionist. And one last note, any overtly racist or bigoted comments will be deleted.]

Maguire – “Criminal” CME Colluded To Save Banks Short Gold

from KingWorldNews:

These bearish bullion banks have bet billions of dollars on gold and silver closing below $1,300 gold and $20 silver. And with the CME assisting them in rigging the casino, these bets are almost always going to pay off. With the physical markets indisputably strong now, and the balance of power shifting over to the Eastern markets, the physical market is beginning to dictate what the synthetic market can do. It’s events like option expiry that are the only easy opportunities left where the Comex tail can still actually wag the physical market dog. And this is a sign of the weakening hold that these collusive banks hold over gold and silver.

The game is so obvious that these sovereign and central bank buyers are rewarded by sitting back and waiting for these banks to defend billions of dollars of paper bets as it gives them (the sovereign buyers) a monthly opportunity to accumulate large bullion at a discount. And that is exactly what we’ve been seeing.

BRILLIANT SATIRE? Michelle Obama goes all in for Monsanto in new ‘GMOs for children’ campaign

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

“The popular agriculture company Monsanto is partnering with First Lady Michelle Obama to promote nutritional foods for kids,” reports (1) “According to reports from the Associated Press, Monsanto will spend $50 million over five years on a campaign to market ‘healthy’ genetically modified food to children.”

This story was making the rounds Friday with multiple sources but may be a hoax or satire. We will keep checking and if it turns out to be a hoax, we will issue a correction. But what’s fascinating about this story is just how rapidly and aggressively the backlash against the initial report has grown.

Hoax or not, this story is sends a VERY important message to the White House: Don’t get in bed with Monsanto!

Why Is Wal-Mart Preparing For A Major Earthquake On The New Madrid Fault?

by Michael Snyder, End of the American Dream:

Buried in a Wall Street Journal article from about a week ago was a startling piece of information.  According to a Wal-Mart executive, Wal-Mart “participated in an exercise to prepare for an earthquake on the New Madrid fault line” earlier this summer.  And officials at the U.S. Geological Survey have just released a report which indicates that they believe that the New Madrid fault zone has the “potential for larger and more powerful quakes than previously thought“.  So should we be concerned?  Do they know something that we don’t?  The USGS also says that the frequency of earthquakes in the central and eastern portions of the United States has quintupled over the past 30 years, and that significant earthquakes have started popping up in areas of the country that were once extremely quiet.  Along with the new report, the USGS released the following map…

DARPA Wants New Technology to Predict “Societal Unrest”

by Paul Joseph Watson, infowars:

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting companies to provide new technology that would allow the U.S. Department of Defense to predict future “societal unrest” by keeping track of “all human activities that can be measured.”

A solicitation posted on FedBizOpps outlines DARPA’s intent to fund research and development of “game-changing technologies” that will “provide a decisive information advantage for the U.S. and its allies,” opening the door to “powerful ways to gain insight into the world.”

“Essentially all human activities that can be measured, from mercantile to military, are being quantitatively re-examined in the context of this new, “big data”, capability. Early demonstrations have produced remarkable insights into human activities and enabled quantitative decision making,” states the solicitation, adding that the agency is looking to develop new algorithms which can forecast “online correlation for societal unrest.”

Help Us SilverFishVT, We’re Addicted to Stacking!

This is the conversation ‘after the call’ with Alasdair Macleod in which we discuss the reasons most Americans won’t or can’t wake up. We also discuss the beauty of stacking physical precious metals, which is a way of SAVING for the future, a concept so foreign to most Americans that they criticize those who stack Ag and Au… which leads us to the SilverFishVT You Tube channel…

MH17 Verdict: Real Evidence Points to US-Kiev Cover-up of Failed False Flag

by Shawn Helton, 21st Century Wire:

Until this past Monday, the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 on July 17th, 2014, was a potential game changer for global geopolitics and the New Cold War. However, a funny thing happened on the way to the Kremlin…

In this report, we will lay out the facts based on a wide breadth of available information and data surrounding MH17. We will also present and give critique to Washington and Kiev’s “mountain of evidence” that has saturated US and European-based media coverage since the incident took place. 21WIRE has compiled this report with the help of many contributors and references from English-speaking media, as well as material translated from Russian and Ukrainian media sources, along with other historical references to provide context. Our objective is to get as close to the truth as possible. Although many revelations will appear to be self-evident, we still encourage the public to draw there own conclusions regarding this pivotal event.

There are other well-known anomalies surrounding this event which have been covered at 21WIRE, as well as connections to MH370, but for the purposes of this investigation we will focus on both factual and speculative evidence brought forth by the US, Ukraine and Russia.

Russia Accuses US of Fabricating Evidence

Dems Push for Pathway to Citizenship for Dreamers Via Military Service

by Penny Starr, CNSnews:

Democrats held a press conference on Friday to announce the introduction of a House resolution calling for the Secretary of Defense to allow illegal aliens brought to the country as children who have been granted temporary legal status by President Barack Obama’s 2012 executive order to serve in the U.S. military – a move that would also grant them a path to citizenship.

Rep. Bill Foster (D-Ill.), the sponsor of the H.R. 685, said “our broken immigration system” is to blame for restricting illegal aliens from military service.

“If they were to walk into a recruiting office today they would be turned away, not because they’re not smart enough, not because they’re not strong enough, not because they don’t love our country enough or because of any character flaw,” Foster said.

The Bankster Master Algorithm

by Jeff Nielson, Bullion Bulls Canada:

It’s Friday July 25th, and the “big news” of the day (other than Israel’s latest war-crimes against the Palestinians) comes from an item I spotted this morning at Jim Sinclair’s site ( However, that item comes from a website that has been BANNED on this site (one of only two, in the entire world-wide-web), and so readers will not see an excerpt of that item here.

Instead, I’ll simply report its stunning contents, since there is actually only one really significant factoid in the article: apparently 50% of all trades at the CME (Chicago Mercantile Exchange) are “illegal wash trades”.

What is a “wash trade”? It is a trade with no “business purpose” of any kind. What, then, is the purpose of a wash trade? To manipulate markets. Understanding that millions and millions of “trades” take place each day at the CME (roughly 12 million “contracts” per day); what could possibly generate that sort of volume of (phony) wash trades?

The Coming Slump

by Alasdair Macleod, Gold Money:

Governments and central banks have made little or no progress in recovering from the Lehman crisis six years ago. The problem is not helped by dependence on statistics which are downright misleading. This is particularly true of real GDP, comprised of nominal GDP deflated by an estimate of price inflation. First, we must discuss the inflation adjustment.

The idea that there is such a thing as a valid measure of price inflation is only true in an econometrician’s imagination. An index which might be theoretically valid at a single point in time is only subsequently valid in the wholly artificial construction of an unchanging, or “evenly rotating economy”: in other words an economy where everyone who is employed remains in the same employment producing at the same rate, retains the same proportion of cash liquidity, and buys exactly the same things in the same quantities. Furthermore business inventory quantities must also be static.

De-Dollarization Spreads: Swiss & Chinese Central Banks Enter Swap Agreement

The Swiss National Bank and the People’s Bank of China reached a currency swap agreement this week.

from Zero Hedge:

The trend of the end of the dollar hegemony continues to slowly creep through the world’s financial systems (no matter how many mainstream media ‘king dollar’ stories we see). The Swiss National Bank and the People’s Bank of China reached a currency swap agreement this week. While this is not a huge trend changer in the near-term, it demonstrates the continued rising role of China as the largest economy and to be the next financial capital of the world when Europe and the USA blow themselves apart with defaulting socialism.

Bubble Psychology and Valuations

by Pater Tenebrarum,

It Can’t Be A Bubble!

Articles claiming that the current situation in financial markets does not deserve the epithet “bubble” are a dime a dozen – we come across several every week since at least late 2013. Before continuing, we should point out that there is a big difference between recognition of a bubble and forecasting the timing of its actual bursting. For instance, we were well aware that there was a bubble in the late 1990s, but not only did it still take a good while before it hit its peak (a peak that was then retested in terms of the broader market half a year later), it also expanded considerably further before it did so, and only started collapsing in earnest in late 2000.

It is important to realize in this context that this particular bubble – the one in technology stocks that peaked in early 2000 – is not some sort of “standard measure” for what constitutes a bubble. It was certainly the most extreme stock market bubble in all of history in a major developed market (in terms of valuation expansion in this particular sector) – beating even the Nikkei’s famous 1989 blow-out by a huge margin. Again, only if one compares the tech sector’s then trailing P/E of more than 300 to the Nikkei’s trailing P/E of more than 80 in 1989.
