Stephen Leeb: This Will Be The Most Frightening Period Of My Lifetime!

  • Leeb – This Will Be The Most Frightening Period Of My Lifetime! 
    by www.kingworldnews.com
    Today acclaimed money manager Stephen Leeb told King World News, “The first piece of data I look at, and I do it around 1AM to 2 AM every morning, is how the Chinese yuan is performing.  Recently the Chinese yuan staged a very dramatic breakout.  It is effectively at all-time highs since China let the yuan semi-float around 20 years ago.”

    “There has been a great deal of political pressure put on China to strengthen the yuan.  The Chinese are responding to their transition to a new leadership.  China’s new leader and leadership should be incredibly strong going forward.  They will prepare the Chinese for the 21st century….
    ….
    I would also add that this period in front of us is probably going to be the most frightening period of my lifetime, and I’ve been around, and I can tell you the way for investors to weather this storm is going to be through the gold and silver space.”

This Is A Moment In Time That’s Never Been Seen Before!

  • This Is A Moment In Time That’s Never Been Seen Before! 
    by www.kingworldnews.com
    Today Bill Fleckenstein told King World News, “… the world is starting to realize that this is a moment in time that’s never been seen before.”  Fleckenstein, who is President of Fleckenstein Capital, discussed Europe, the US, gold, and the danger the world is facing today.

    Here is what Fleckenstein had to say:  “Greece is a serial bailout, restructuring, can-kick, and I guess this is going to continue as long as the riots don’t get worse.  Maybe eventually Greece will get ejected from the euro.  The question (in Europe) is, is Draghi going to get serious about the OMT or not?”

    “My suspicion is he is going to.  They are going to use the central bank there to make sure the euro doesn’t fracture, in the same way Greenspan and Bernanke have used the printing press to make sure that the United States financial markets don’t collapse. I suspect Europe will muddle through as long as Draghi is willing to keep buying the government debt and keep the whole process moving….

General Petraeus’ Sex Scandal: CIA vs FBI?

  • General David Petraeus’ resignation as the head of the Central Intelligence Agency came after the FBI investigated complaints of harassing emails. This lead to the discovery of Petraeus’ love affair with his biographer and many believe that the rivalry between the FBI and the CIA had something to do with the leaked information. So does the FBI have the power to search emails without a warrant? Trevor Aaronson, author of the book The Terror Factory, gives us his take on the scandal.

Insider Steve Pieczenik: CIA is Purging The U.S. Military in Globalist Coup?!!

  • I do not trust Steve Pieczenik because he is a high-ranking (Illuminati) Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member. However, this is not to say he does not tell the truth at some level. Major ‘tectonic’ moves are happening in the American military. 5 high-ranking generals/commanders removed in a few months is not about sexual mis-conduct, ‘inappropriate’ behaviors …etc.

    Government insider Steve Pieczenik will blow the lid off what he says is the truth behind the tragedy in Benghazi and the General Petraeus mega-scandal.

Iran Hawk Petraeus Pushed Out for Warmongering??!

  • David Petraeus is Jewish. I do not trust Petraeus, not because he is Jewish but because he is CIA director. IMO, to be CIA director, you must be an Illuminist or at best a sycophantic Illuminist puppet! List of military commanders removed so far recently:

    Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette.  
    Brigadier General Jeffrey A. Sinclair.   
    US Army General Carter Ham.   
    US Navy Commander Joseph  E. Darlak.
  • It appears General John Allen will be removed too. All the ‘news’ about inappropriate behavior, sexual mis-conduct, blah blah blah … in the MSM are not the real reasons for their removal. Something big is taking place under cover. It probably has to do with Benghazi, the coming Middle East war …

Keiser Report: Tourettes Traders & Bleeping Bankers!

  • In this episode, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss foul mouthed foreigners with banker tourettes in Singapore, while in America, traders at Barclays send each other expletive-filled emails admitting to manipulating energy prices down in order to have their big bets on declining prices pay off. They also discuss financial activists creating a rolling jubillee reverse vulture fund designed to liberate the population from unpayable debts.  In the second half, Max Keiser talks to Teri Buhl about the investigation into fraud at Sun Trust Bank where whistleblowers allege the bank mis-sold mortgages to Fannie Mae, the government sponsored enterprise. Max and Teri also talk about recent developments in the case of residential mortgage back securities fraudulently sold to investors by JP Morgan’s Bear Stearns holding and Teri proposes a million man march on the SEC and the NY Fed.

Israeli Minister: Prepare for Large Scale Gaza Op!

  • The article below (by http://www.israelnationalnews.com/) is largely Zionist propaganda! Hamas was founded by Israel and is a controlled opposition. The Zionists will fabricate false flag terrorism or label genuine fights for survival as terrorism. It is a fact that Gaza is the largest open air prison in the world. It is also a fact that the Zionists have been committing acts of genocide and ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians people for the past 64+ years. Zionist ‘666’ Israel is illegally occupying Palestinian land and this is an act of war! This nation is an apartheid, neo Nazi state!
  • Let me describe what is happening: Ashkenazi non-semitic Khazars (who call themselves Jews) flying a Satanic ‘666’ flag are mass murdering semitic Palestinian people. What does this remind you of? Remember: All wars are based on deception! – Sun Tzu .

    Revelation 12:13 New King James Version (NKJV) 
    13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child.
  • The semitic Palestinian people are in all likelihood the real biological descendents of the 12 tribes of Israel ie. they are the real Jews of the Bible. Ashkenazi Khazars are not semitic and thus cannot be the real Jews of the 12 tribes of Israel ! See also:

    Minister: Prepare for Large Scale Gaza Op! 
    by Gil Ronen, http://www.israelnationalnews.com/
    Min. Uzi Landau says it is time to hit the heads of Hamas and prepare a ground assault.

     Minister of Water and Infrastructure, Uzi Landau (Yisrael Beytenu), said Sunday that the IDF needs to prepare a ground assault into Gaza, and to begin targeting the heads of Hamas.

    “We must not just go after those firing at Israel, but the true sources of the fire,” Landau said, and explained that he was referring to Hamas’s leaders, who control Gaza.

     Landau said that he is reminded now of the interview by Mahmoud Abbas (“Abu Mazen”) last week that had leftist proponents of the Oslo Accords gloating. “The ‘Osloids’ who called him a partner received their answer in the form of missile fire from Gaza,” he asserted.

     “It is important to remember,” he added, “that if our security forces were not operating in Judea and Samaria, the ‘partner’ would not have survived for one minute there. Can Abu Mazen even stop the fire there?”

     “Unfortunately, the situation is such that besides hitting the heads of Hamas, we must prepare to operate in Gaza and launch a large scale operation in order to bring back quiet and security. The planning of the operation should begin today and it should be executed at the most appropriate time, when the fire begins again.”
  • Zionist, Moshe Sharett, who was Israeli’s first Foreign Minister from 1948-1956, and Prime Minister from 1954-1956 said (emphasis mine):
    In his diary, Sharett quotes a conversation with Army Chief of Staff Moshe Dayan in May 1955:

    We face no danger at all of an Arab advantage of force for the next 8-10 years…Reprisal actions which we couldn’t carry out if we were tied to a security pact are our vital lymph…they make it possible for us to maintain a high level of tension in our population and in the army. Without these actions we would have ceased to be a combative people… “

    Sharett concludes: “The state…. must see the sword as the main if not the only, instrument with which to keep its morale high and to retain its moral tension. Toward this end it may — no it MUST — invent dangers, and to do this it must adopt the method of provocation and revenge…. And above all, let us hope for a new war with the Arab countries so that we may finally get rid of our troubles and acquire our space.

    Jews Against Zionism: (emphasis mine)
    It has been the age-old intention of Zionism to intentionally stir up anti-Semitism anywhere possible, and even more commonly, to take advantage of any Jewish suffering anywhere in order to enhance its cause. Indeed, hatred of Jews and Jewish suffering is the oxygen of the Zionist movement, and from the very beginning has been to deliberately incite hatred of the Jew and then, in feigned horror, use it to justify the existence of the Zionist state – this is, of course, Machiavellianism raised to the highest degree. Thus, the Zionists thrive on hatred and suffering of Jews, and seek to benefit thereby through keeping Jews in perpetual fear, causing them to ignore the true nature of Zionism, and instead to consider the Zionist state is their salvation.
    .…
    As far as Zionism is concerned, the founder of Zionism and apostate, Theodor Herzl, sought to intensify hatred of the Jew in order to enhance the cause of political Zionism. Here are some of his “pearls”:

    “It is essential that the sufferings of Jews. . . become worse. . . this will assist in realization of our plans. . .I have an excellent idea. . . I shall induce anti-semites to liquidate Jewish wealth. . . The anti-semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-semites shall be our best friends”. (From his Diary, Part I, pp. 16)
    …..
    There is a huge amount of literature describing how the Zionists made it very difficult to save Jews during and after World War II. As various individuals and organizations were trying to arrange departures of Jews to western countries, the Zionists worked overtime to prevent this from happening. They expressed the opinion that building up the Jewish population of Palestine was more important than enabling Jews to go to third countries, and they insisted to western powers that Jews should not be accepted anywhere other than Palestine. Indeed, Yitzchak Greenbaum, a famous Zionist, proclaimed that “one cow in Palestine was worth more than all the Jews in Poland.” The infamous David Ben-Gurion said in 1938:


    “If I knew it was possible to save all the children in Germany by taking them to England, and only half of the children by taking them to Eretz Israel, I would choose the second solution. For we must take into account not only the lives of these children but also the history of the people of Israel.”

Rivals Fear Israel’s Binyamin Netanyahu is Plotting Nuclear Strike on Iran!

  • The Illuminist plan is to use Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit, to trigger the Satanic World War 3! When it comes to Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Christian sheeple are, unfortunately, easily deceived useful idiots! Many of them will fall when Zionist ‘666’ Israel is destroyed !
  • When an army flies a ‘666’ flag, is it the army of God or Satan? Obviously Satan! When an army plants a ‘666’ flag on conquered land, is the conquest for God or Satan? Obviously Satan! When a country flies a ‘666’ flag, is the country of God or Satan? Obviously Satan! Zionist ‘666’ Israel is the only country to fly the Satanic ‘666’ Hexagram flag!

    Satanic World War 3 Plan (Greater Middle East War)
    The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other.  … more!

    Rivals fear Israel’s Binyamin Netanyahu is plotting nuclear strike on Iran! 
    by Uzi Mahnaimi, Tel Aviv, http://www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/sto/ 
    ISRAEL’S military planners have been forced to conclude that a conventional assault on Iran’s nuclear facilities might fail after evidence emerged that Tehran has hidden far more of its uranium enrichment capacity beneath a mountain than previously suspected.

    Western defence experts say much of Iran’s Fordow enrichment site near the city of Qom is now deep underground in a “zone of immunity” safe from conventional airstrikes.

    They claim this narrows Israel’s response to two options: the deployment of special forces in a ground attack, or the use of ballistic missiles carrying small tactical nuclear warheads.

    The phrase zone of immunity was coined by Ehud Barak, the defence minister, to emphasise that time is running out for Israel as Iran moves closer to being able to make a nuclear weapon.

    “Israel’s plans have been constantly evolving in recent years according to the progress Iran is making,” said a senior defence source.

US Budget Deficit Soars In October As Government Spends Over $300 Billion In One Month!

  • US Budget Deficit Soars In October As Government Spends Over $300 Billion In One Month! 
    by Tyler Durden, www.zerohedge.com
    Moments ago the MTS released the final October budget report. It was not pretty, although those who read our report on how much debt was added – $195 billion to be precise – in the first month of the 2013 Fiscal Year will know where this is going. The US budget deficit was expected to soar after the September surplus of $75 billion, driven entirely by calendar shifts and pre-election propaganda, to -$113 billion. That was optimistic: the total amount of overspending in October was $120 billion.

    What is distressing is that this was well above the $98.5 billion deficit from a year ago, and confirms that the long-term trendline of ever greater spending continues. This was also the fourth largest October deficit in history. And looking merely at the spending side of the ledger, the US government’s outlays in October alone were $304 billion. This is the third biggest October monthly spend for the government ever, and just why of the all time high $320.4 billion record in October 2008, when everything imploded after Lehman failure and Hank Paulson was literally dousing the monetary flames with brand new Benjamins.

Silver Price to ‘Increase 400pc in Three Years’!

  • Silver price to ‘increase 400pc in three years’! 
    by , http://www.telegraph.co.uk/ 
    The silver bull run will continue says investment specialist Ian Williams of Charteris Treasury.

    Silver will increase in value five times over the next three years, according to mixed asset fund manager Ian Williams. “Silver is about to enter a sustained bull market that will take the price from the current level of $32 an ounce to $165 an ounce and we expect this price to be hit at the end of October 2015,” he predicted.

    “This forecast is based entirely using technical & cyclical analysis and is in keeping with the mathematical form displayed so far in the bull run that has taken Silver from $8 an ounce in 2008 to its current price of $32 an ounce – having hit $50 an ounce in 2011.”

    Mr Williams said that the silver price was more volatile than gold, but that he expected silver to continue to dramatically outperform gold. The Charteris manager said that macro fundamentals were supportive for the silver price, such as the re-election of President Obama, who supports Ben Bernanke’s policy of quantitative easing.

Turkey Prime Minister Erdogan Suggests Shift From Dollar to Gold !

Death of dollar!

  • ERDOĞAN SUGGESTS SHIFT FROM DOLLAR TO GOLD! 
    by http://english.sabah.com.tr/ 
    During his stay in Indonesia, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan brought up an interesting suggestion for the International Monetary Fund. Stating that although IMF assistance may appear to be a prescription for some nations, in fact quite the opposite, the fund has often caused serious problems for countries in trouble, Erdoğan asks why it is that the fund uses dollars instead of gold.

    Expressing that he doesn’t feel it is right for the IMF to act according to one nation’s currency, Erdoğan states, “The IMF extends aid on a who, where, how and on what conditions bases. For example, if the IMF is under the influence of any single currency then what, are they going rule the world based on the exchange rates of that particular currency?

    Why do we not switch then to a monetary unit such as gold, which is at the very least an international constant and indicator which has maintained its honor throughout history. This is something to think about.”

    IT IS IMPERATIVE THE IMF AND OECD CHANGE
    Explaining that Turkey had to pay a heavy price for the agreement they made with the IMF, Erdoğan stated, “We have not made a stand-by agreement for the past three periods. In April, we will have zeroed out our debt completely and we have no intentions of working with the IMF again.”


    Prime Minister Erdoğan went on to state: “One would hope that the IMF would help countries in trouble, however at present this is not the case. This is what we need to achieve.”

    Erdoğan also said he believed the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the Organization for Security and Co-operation n Europe (OSCE) and the Organization for Co-operation and Development (OECD) need to all undergo a reform.

    This is a translation of an article originally written by Zübeyde Yalçın.

Mark Grant: Living In ‘The Day Before’ Global Calamity Strikes!

Global economic and geo-political storm is coming!

  • Living In ‘The Day Before’! 
    by Mark J. Grant author of Out of the Box, via http://www.zerohedge.com/ 
    The Day Before
    March 15, 44 BC             Julies Caesar was assassinated

    – December 25, 4 BC        Jesus Christ was born
    – 476 AD                             Augustulus deposed ending 505 years of the Roman Empire
    – July 16, 622                     Mohammed began writing the Koran
    – December 25, 800         Charlemagne crowned “Emperor of the Romans” by the Pope
    – October 14, 1066            William of Normandy defeated the English
    …..
    In each of these instances, at each of these critical moments in time, there was a “day before.” The “day before” was just another normal day, time running its course, twenty-four hours where people may have known that something was up but supposed nothing would change. Markets, you see, always live in this “day before” where the bend in the highway never comes, where the path is always straight and fixed and where it is generally thought that nothing of consequence will happen. Then some event takes place, something magical or wonderful or awful occurs and the world is turned on its axis and nothing is ever the same again.

    The lead time for many of these moments in history is often long and could have been prepared for but, people being what they are, we tire of the wait and the markets continue to operate on the assumption that this “day before” will always be in effect right up until the moment when it is not. You see; the “day before” is transmuted by Time and what was becomes what is and that could be something very different than our last turn around the sun and to not be prepared is a disservice to your own position and to the capital of your clients.

    ….
    The Looking Glass
    Women are much better at it than men but we all need to stand and stare into the mirror and take a very hard look at what is staring back. An honest reappraisal is imperative now! Syria fires on Israel, Israel fires back and Iran looms like the grey robed man with a scythe. War in the Middle East is an outlier no longer.

    Greece has risen from its recent obscurity, a Phoenix from the fire but, unlike the mythological bird re-born, this Greece is covered in fire, soot and dirt and Hercules himself could not make their debt sustainable.  The IMF may not fund and Europe promises, promises, promises and delivers nothing, no one wants to take any losses when losses must be taken and so Greece has become a dead man walking.

    Greece promises, Europe promises, platitudes are delivered like meat on a platter at a steakhouse and the silver cover is swept away and, low and behold, there is nothing there. Debt extensions, the lowering of interest rates, the buy-back of Greek debt in the open market and all of the other slivers of even more promises will not solve the problem, cannot solve the problem as the numbers have overtaken any relatively painless solutions. The figures will not add up without debt forgiveness, significantly more money or default. “Where’s the beef” is soon to be found or not found in the European Parliaments as the IMF rejects any new methodology for counting the coins in the vault. Breakpoint; we are at Breakpoint.
     –
    The United States is staring into a fiscal abyss affecting 4.52% of our GDP and the priorities of the Republicans and the Democrats are as opposite as they have been in my lifetime. Perhaps there will be a compromise but maybe not and the risks enlarge with the passing of the days. Forget gloom, doom, optimism or muddle; the reality is that huge, giant risks are at hand and that you have no control over them and that in the Middle East, in Europe, in America that things could swing wildly out of control and that we do not face one cliff but jagged edges on three sides where Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece could cause an avalanche while another may occur in the United States and a third could come rolling out of the sands of the desert countries.
    ….
    I am not talking of betting this morning but of preservation and, in my humble opinion, only a fool would fail to see the risks at hand and take precautions. We are in danger, “clear and present danger” and the strategy of the “day before” is no longer appropriate. I can also tell you that the scent of Fear is picking up as the calls to the Wizard increase and as many institutions begin to assume “fall back positions” that are not only reasonable but mandated out of necessity by our present circumstances. Take note, $400 billion has poured into bond funds this year, an all-time record, with yields at depressed levels indicating a quite real flight to safety. The United States lost thirty-six percent of its wealth during the American Financial Crisis and, people or institutions, the song rolls across the landscape, “We won’t get fooled again!”
