“The few who understand the system will either be so interested from its profits, or so dependent on its favors that there will be no opposition from that class.”
-Rothschild Brothers of London, 1863
The mainstream is on an academically-driven mission to politicize conspiracy theories and lump them all into the same category. While gold and silver manipulation is an ancient conspiracy fact, eyes are wide shut to the general awareness in the face of one revelation after another.
The news cycle is filled with a carefully crafted digestion of tightly controlled sound bites that are presented with no lack of drama, glitter, and spotlights. The mainstream media is perfectly positioned to make theater of the issues that remain esoteric and out of reach. The further the issue is from the majority’s perception, the more black and white will be the acceptance. Belief is emotional, politically framed.

If yesterday we had questions about the half life of the effectiveness of the latest diplomatic de-escalation of Ukraine tensions ‘achieved’ in Geneva, following news that both Ukraine would continue its anti-terrorist operation and that fighting had broken out in various east Ukraine locations after the agreement, today any questions have been swept aside following news that the Ukraine “separatist” milita, who after all is the primary object of Ukraine “anti-terrorist activities”, has announced that they will only leave the occupied east Ukraine buildings if the interim government in Kiev resigns. Denis Pushilin, a spokesman of the self-appointed Donetsk People’s Republic, told reporters that the insurgents do not recognize the Ukrainian government as legitimate.

In the spring of last year, and on the heels of the Cyprus “bail in”; informed investors know there was a global stampede into physical bullion – and out of the banksters’ fraudulent paper-called-gold “products”. In reporting on those events, regular readers saw this headline Paper-Gold Holders Flee To Real Metal.
The evidence seemed conclusive. The Cyprus Steal triggered the realization among the Smart Money that no paper asset in the Western world was safe, any longer. That realization instigated the stampede out of the banksters’ paper-called-gold. Total holdings of the largest of the paper-called-gold fraud funds (the SPDR Gold Trust, or “GLD”) ultimately fell by approximately 40%.
However, as investors were liquidating 10’s of millions of ounces of what the bankers call “gold”; the Comex’s gold inventories didn’t rise by 10’s of millions of ounces. In fact those inventories didn’t rise at all – they collapsed. This seemed to indicate that investors were redeeming their GLD paper, and extracting real, physical gold to replace it.

Opportunities for the West to hurt the Russian economy are limited, President Vladimir Putin said Thursday. Europe cannot stop buying Russian gas without inflicting pain on itself, and if the US tries to lower oil prices, the dollar will suffer.
If the West tries to damage Russia’s influence in the world energy market, efforts will likely backfire, the Russian President said during his twelfth annual televised question and answer session.
To really influence the world oil market a country would need to increase production and cut prices, which currently only Saudi Arabia could afford, Putin said.

Since there is a lot of talk about a potential gold re evaluation following an international monetary reset, I wanted to interview David Morgan, renowned silver market analyst, in order to have his views on a couple of topics, including silver evolution, silver manipulation, and the potential price of silver after a financial reset. Read his answers below :
Fabrice Drouin Ristori : Mr. Morgan, thank you for this interview. You’ve specialized in analyzing the silver price for a long time, and understanding how and why the price of silver evolves with such volatility takes time and research. Let’s start with the basics : Could you give us an idea of the size of the annual worldwide production of physical silver ?
David Morgan : Yes, the total supply is roughly one billion ounces annually. Approximately 800 million ounces mined, and 200 million ounces from recycling.

The darkness to which I refer is something largely unanticipated in political studies and even in science fiction, a field which definitely enters this discussion, as readers will see. There have been many examples of national tyrannies and even stories of global autocracies, but the Hitler-Stalin-Mussolini type of tyranny is an antiquated model for advanced states despite its applying still to many third-world places. A unique set of circumstances now works towards a dystopian future in advanced states with no need for jackboots or brutal faces on posters.
Ironically, one of the key forces which brought Europe and North America over a few centuries to the kind of liberal democracies we know today is capable of delivering a new and unprecedented form of tyranny. That force is the body of interests of a nation’s middle class – the group of capable, ambitious, and rising people who were called a few centuries back by Europe’s landed old aristocracy “the new men.”

from USA Watchdog:
A deal has been reached over the Ukraine crisis, and that will supposedly “de-escalate tensions and restore security.”
This deal is between the EU, U.S., Russia and Ukraine. I guess this is good news, but I would call it extremely temporary. This is supposed to lead to disarming the pro-Russian militia and returning control of government buildings in Eastern Ukraine. Loyal Ukrainians and pro-Russian factions have been going at it, and I am not sure this deal is going to “de-escalate tensions.” Even President Obama is skeptical. He said that the U.S. has to be ready to “respond to what continue to be interference by the Russians.” The military option is off the table according to the White House. So, that leaves sanctions that nobody wants, especially in the EU. Massive amounts of business are done between Russia and the EU. The global economy is weak at best, and in some places in Europe, you can call it a depression. Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin says he has, “the right to use military force in Ukraine.” Russia is going to end up with much of Ukraine, and I do not think there is much anyone is going to do about it.

We don’t know what state the world is going to be in by the time something like that might happen. Who knows how many more trillions of dollars are going to have been printed by the time these guys finally give up this attempt to ‘magic’ money out of thin air and save the world?
But $5,000, $10,000, $15,000, $20,000 gold, none of those numbers would cause you to raise an eyebrow if you actually sat down and ran the numbers. The question is, what’s the system they are going to set up to try to bring gold back into the fold (of the global monetary system)?

Can’t get there to stand with them? Please click to DONATE to Oath Keepers.
“Senator” Harry Reid calls Bundy Ranch supporters “Domestic Terrorists” which , Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes calls his vitriol “ludicrous”, because it is. It’s “uniquely American”, Rhodes says.
And as Oath Keepers and patriots roast under the Nevada sun, many more freedom-loving Americans are beginning to arrive from all over the country to relieve those already in place. Stewart Rhodes made the call for logistical support a couple days ago, and patriots responded from as far away as Alaska to stand side-by-side with the former Army paratrooper. Here is the latest audio update from Stewart in Bunkerville, Nevada.
News reports tell us that he who thinks he is God, President Obama, is urging the Russians not to cut the gas supply to Ukraine as it could provoke the start of a humanitarian crisis because millions of Ukrainians may not be able to heat their homes next winter.
The same man has declared a war on coal, and indirectly on the American people, based on spurious ‘climate science’ and the need to reduce carbon emissions by closing down coal fired power stations. This will leave millions of Americans unable to turn on the lights or heat their homes and businesses.
By 2015 all power generators in the United States will have to comply with the new Mercury and Air Toxics Standards. With little choice but to comply power generators have started to retire coal fired power plants that do not comply with the new regulations. Dozens of coal fired power station are destined to close, you can see a full list here.

This is particularly evident in Ukraine where the economy is nearing collapse and the currency is in free fall. The Hryvnia has been the world’s worst performing currency in 2014.
The charts below gives an indication as to the terrifying magnitude and speed of the recent decline in the value of the currency. This week alone the currency has fallen by 7% against gold or gold per ounce has risen from 15,669 hryvnia per ounce at open on Monday to 16,880 hryvnia per ounce today.
Year to date, gold in hryvnia has surged by 69% from 9,992 per ounce to 16,880 per ounce or to put it more correctly, Ukraine’s national currency has collapsed by 69% against gold in less than four months.

Robert Ellis Smith, recognized as the leading expert on the right to privacy in the U.S. and founder and publisher of The Privacy Journal (www.PrivacyJournal.net), outlines the dramatic erosion of personal privacy that has marked the last century. Smith highlights some of the latest threats to privacy, and finally advises how ordinary people can take simple action steps to safeguard their family’s privacy, avoid the latest pattern-tracking surveillance methods, and reclaim some of the personal liberty and autonomy that many of us have unwittingly forfeited in recent years.

Did you know that the number of Americans getting benefits from the federal government each month exceeds the number of full-time workers in the private sector by more than 60 million? In other words, the number of people that are taking money out of the system is far greater than the number of people that are putting money into the system. And did you know that nearly 70 percent of all of the money that the federal government spends goes toward entitlement and welfare programs? When it comes to the transfer of wealth, nobody does it on a grander scale than the U.S. government. Most of what the government does involves taking money from some people and giving it to other people. In fact, at this point that is the primary function of the federal government.
Just check out the chart below. It comes from the Heritage Foundation, and it shows that 69 percent of all federal money is spent either on entitlements or on welfare programs…
