Jim Sinclair: Full-Blown Panic As People Ask “Where Is The Gold?”

Where's the gold?

Where’s the gold?

  • Sinclair – Full-Blown Panic As People Ask “Where Is The Gold?” 
    Today legendary trader Jim Sinclair warned King World News about the full-blown panic that has erupted in both the financial world, and the gold market as well, as people ask, “Where is the gold?”  Below is what Sinclair, who was once called on by former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker to assist during a Wall Street crisis, had to say in this remarkable interview.

    Sinclair: “People have to understand what the motivation was for the recent takedown in the gold price.  It was so well organized, strategized, and executed by the gold banks, in unison, even though it has had the unintended consequence of creating a massive and worldwide buying frenzy in the physical gold market.

    There is a comparison that is obvious today because I was very involved in the $1 billion loan which had to be made at the time that the Hunt’s positions went into default (in 1980).  This was at a time when Bache & Company, and Merrill Lynch were rumored to be at least on the fence, if not entirely insolvent.

    You have to understand that back in 1980 when gold had risen to $887.50, and silver traded above $51 an ounce, the financial world was in a full-blown panic and many people firmly believed the dollar was going into oblivion.

1,000 Japanese Officers To Participate In “Island Recapture” Drill In California!


  • 1,000 Japanese Officers To Participate In “Island Recapture” Drill In California! 
    by Tyler Durden,
    More than six months since the Japanese nationalistic escalation over the disputed island chain (that shall not be named) in the East China Sea sent Sino-Japanese foreign relations to a level not seen since a particular territorial dispute over Manchuria, tensions just hit a fever pitch overnight, when an armada of eight Chinese ships entered what Japan claimed were its territorial waters.

    China’s version of the story is that the vessels were there to monitor the activity of a flotilla of boats reportedly carrying members of a Japanese nationalist group (in what it too, naturally, views as its territorial waters). This was the most Chinese ships to enter Japanese waters near the Senkakus since the Japanese government purchased three of them from what it considers their owner last September and effectively nationalized the chain, a move China has quite vocally disputed and which has led to violent anti-Japanese demonstrations in China, as well as a wide-ranging boycott of numerous Japanese exports.

    Japan promptly followed protocol and summoned the Chinese ambassador and lodged a protest over the maritime activity. “It is extremely regrettable and unacceptable that Chinese state ships continue to engage in intrusion,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference. “We are protesting strictly through our diplomatic channels.”

    The intrusion came after around 10 fishing boats carrying members of a conservative political group called Ganbare Nippon left Ishigaki Island in Okinawa and headed toward the Senkakus on Monday night. Things just escalated from there when running in four formations, the eight Chinese ships monitored the Japanese ships from different angles, China said in a statement.

    Prime Minister Shinzo Abe vowed to “expel by force” any Chinese landing on the islets. “We would take decisive action against any attempt to enter territorial waters and to land,” Abe told the Diet in response to questions from lawmakers. “We would never allow” a landing. “It would be natural for us to expel by force (the Chinese) if they were to make a landing,” he said.

    Obviously, when we first read this latest incarnation of tiny David provoking a massive Goliath, we couldn’t help but smile. Yet it turns out that Japan is indeed hell bent on pushing China to the limit, and then some, in this parading around with its best friend: the United States.

    Moments ago Kyodo reported that Japan’s Defense Ministry said on Tuesday that “about 1,000 officers of the nation’s Self-Defense Forces will participate in a U.S. drill to be held in California in June involving recapturing control of an isolated island.”

    Did we mention the drill would be held in California? It is quite clear what said “recaptured island” is supposed to represent. It is even clearer what the US backing and sponsorship of such a drill on US soil is supposed to telegraph to China, so we won’t go into any details. It will be the first time for SDF personnel to participate in such a drill on the U.S. mainland.

    Japan’s participation could trigger a backlash from China as the Defense Ministry has been strengthening its capability to protect isolated islands amid soured ties with China over territorial issues surrounding the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea, experts on defense issues said.

Japan PM Abe Warns China of Force Over Islands Landing!

Senkaku islands

  • Disclaimer: I am neither pro Chinese nor pro Japanese over the Senkaku-DiaoYu Islands issue. I am anti Illuminati and pro humanity. Communism was founded, funded, supported, managed …. by the Illuminist Synagogue of Satan banksters out of Wall Street. China is controlled by the Rockefeller Satanic bloodline as is Japan!
  • The Illuminist MSM will sell you the illusion: Japan vs China! This is to set the stage for the coming Greater Asia War. The Illuminist plan is always to brainwash 1 group of sheeple into killing another group of sheeple. Ie. Japanese sheeple vs Chinese sheeple. The reality is: this coming war is a staged, engineered, planned (many decades ago), fomented ….. event by the Illuminati. Its purpose is the mass culling of the Japanese and Chinese sheeple! The sheeple are being led to the slaughter by their Illuminist leaders. Out of the coming Satanic World War 3, Order Out of Chaos, the Satanists want to launch their Luciferian New World Order! The real war is: Satan and his minions vs the rest of humanity!
  • Japan PM Abe warns China of force over islands landing! 
    Japan would respond with force if any attempt is made to land on disputed islands, PM Shinzo Abe has warned. His comments came as eight Chinese government ships sailed near East China Sea islands that both nations claim.

    A flotilla of 10 fishing boats carrying Japanese activists was also reported to be in the area, as well as the Japanese coastguard. Mr Abe was speaking in parliament hours after dozens of lawmakers visited a controversial war-linked shrine.

    A total of 168 lawmakers paid their respects at the Yasukuni Shrine, which commemorates Japan’s war dead, including war criminals, in a move likely to anger regional neighbours who say the shrine is a reminder of Japan’s military past.

    ‘Deal strongly’
    The warning from the Japanese prime minister was the most explicit to China since Mr Abe took power in December, the BBC’s Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports from Tokyo. Asked in parliament what he would do if Chinese ships tried to land on the disputed islands, Mr Abe said they would be expelled by force.

Chuck Hagel Green Lights Israeli Attacks On Syria and Iran!

  • The western Illuminati is setting up their Satanic World War 3! Watch also China  / Japan / India / Pakistan …. for the Greater Asia War! Chuck Hagel is part of the Illuminati Trilateral Commission!
  • Albert Pike’s Satanic World War 3 Plan
    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!
  • Chuck Hagel Green Lights Israeli Attacks On Syria and Iran
    by Kurt Nimmo, 
    On Tuesday, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel did penance for his perceived sins against Israel. The former senator from Nebraska was criticized during his confirmation process by the likes of John McCain for not joining the march to war against Iran. Hagel’s opposition to sanctions against Iran were considered antisemitic.

    South Carolina Senator Lindsay Graham went so far as to say that Hagel “would be the most antagonistic Secretary of Defense towards the state of Israel in our nation’s history.”

    All doubt was put to rest on Tuesday when Hagel met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv. Hagel green lighted an attack on Iran, dispersing any remaining doubt about his past. The Wall Street Journal described Hagel’s transformation as a “recasting” and said he “expanded a U.S. charm offensive aimed at Israel while advancing an Israeli objective – trying to convince Iran that it faces a realistic military threat as it continues to rebuff Western diplomatic efforts.”

    During a news conference delivered from Israel’s military headquarters, Hagel stressed that Israel and the United States are in “complete” agreement on Iran policy. He reiterated that Israel, as a sovereign state, has a right to attack Iran for its as of yet unsubstantiated nuclear weapons program.

    He said there’s no “daylight” or “gap” between the United States and Israel when it comes to taking out Iran’s nuclear reactors (and, although unstated, its military and civilian infrastructure). In order to accomplish this, Hagel said the United States has agreed to sell Israel more military hardware, including V-22 Osprey transport aircraft and air refueling tankers that will be used in the coming attack. Hagel insisted the arms deal is meant to send a message to Iran.

    Sending advanced refueling tanker planes, crucial for an attack, is something not even the neocon administration of George W. Bush was willing to do.

    Oddly, U.S. officials believe affirming Israel’s desire take out Iran and selling it more sophisticated military technology will make an attack less likely.

    In addition to backing Israel’s “sovereign” right to attack Iran, Hagel demonstrated the Obama administration’s support for Israeli attacks inside Syria. Hagel and Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon flew within five kilometers of the Syrian border and approximately 30 miles from Damascus in an Israeli Army UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter.

    On Monday, the French newspaper Le Figaro reported that Jordan has decided to allow Israel to use its airspace to stage raids inside Syria. The newspaper noted two routes that will be opened to Israel – a southern route from the Negev and a route through Amman. The agreement will allow Israel to avoid flying over southern Lebanon.

    In January, Israel bombed a Syrian military research center in Jamraya. “We don’t think [Syria] should be allowed to bring advanced weapons systems into Lebanon,” Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak told international diplomats in Germany after the attack. He said the attack, which killed five people, was “proof that when we say something we mean it.”

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

“In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

BOSTON TRUTH: The “Chechen Connection”, Al Qaeda and the Boston Marathon Bombings!


  • BOSTON TRUTH: The “Chechen Connection”, Al Qaeda and the Boston Marathon Bombings! 
    by Prof Michel Chossudovsky,
    Nine thousand heavily armed police including SWAT teams were deployed in a manhunt to capture a 19 year old student at U-Mass, after his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the alleged Boston Marathon terror mastermind was shot dead by police allegedly  after a car chase and shoot out with police.

    Prior to the conduct of a police investigation, the 19 year old student has already been designated as “guilty”.  The fundamental legal principle of  “innocence until proven guilty” has been scrapped. In the words of President Obama (a graduate of Harvard Law School),  the Boston 19 year old student is “guilty” of  heinous crimes (without evidence and prior to being charged in a court of law):

    “Whatever hateful agenda drove these men [suspects] to such heinous acts will not, cannot, prevail. Whatever they thought they could achieve, they’ve already failed…. Why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and our country resort to such violence?” (emphasis added)

    Coupled with the alleged anthrax and ricin letters in Washington D.C. which mysteriously surfaced in the immediate wake of the Boston tragedy, both Washington and the media have underscored the Tsarnaev brothers tenuous ties to Chechnya’s militant jihadist insurgency.

    According to the Wall Street Journal, quoting expert scholarly opinion:
    ”...the Chechen [family] background is maybe a part of what leads them [the two suspects] to do what they do,” said Lorenzo Vidino, an expert on Chechen militants at the Center for Security Studies in Zurich.” … A profile on the Russian social-networking site Vkontakte that appears to belong to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev includes a propaganda clip rallying jihadists to go to Syria to fight alongside rebels there, citing sayings from the Prophet Muhammad. [Amply documented, it just so happens that the jihadist foreign fighters in Syria are recruited by the US and its allies] (Wall Street Journal, op cit.)

    What is implied is that even if the suspects are not tied to a Muslim extremist network, their embedded cultural heritage and  Muslim “background” incites them –quite naturally– to commit acts of violence.  How does this concept –which routinely associates Muslims with terrorism – repeated ad nauseam in the Western news chain,  affect the human mindset?

    While the identity and motives of the suspects are currently being examined by police investigators, the Tsarnaev brothers have already been categorized –without supporting evidence– as “Radical Muslims”. Across the land, Muslims are being smeared and demonized.  A new wave of Islamophobia has been set in motion.

    The Creation of A New Legend: “The Chechen Connection”
    A new legend is unfolding: “The Chechen Connection” is threatening America. Islamism homegrown in the Russian Federation is now being “exported to America”.

    Plastered on news tabloids across the United States, the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings on Patriots’ Day are relentlessly compared to September 11, 2001. According to the Council of Foreign Relations:

    Law enforcement agencies at all levels have made advances in surveillance and policing since the September 11, 2001 attacks, but security risks persist. Many counterterrorism experts call for a renewed focus on the ability of the United States to weather and recover from such incidents… (emphasis added)

    Is the Boston tragedy being used by Washington to usher in a new wave of police state measures directed against different categories of “domestic terrorists? Is this catastrophic event being applied to foster public reaction against Muslims?

    Is it being used to build acceptance of America’s holy crusade –initiated during the Bush administration– directed against a number of Muslim countries, which allegedly “harbor Islamic terrorists”?

    According to the powerful Council of Foreign Relations (which exerts a pervasive influence on both the White House and the State Department), the Boston bombings once again “raise the specter of terrorism on U.S. soil, highlighting the vulnerabilities of a free and open society”. (Ibid)

    Counter terrorism and Martial Law –implying the suspension of civil liberties– rather than civilian law enforcement are the proposed solutions. In the words of Secretary of State John Kerry, ‘‘I think it’s fair to say this entire week we’ve been in pretty direct confrontation with evil.’’

    The unfolding mass media consensus (including that of Hollywood) is that America is once again under attack. This time, however, the alleged perpetrators are “Muslim terrorists” not from Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia  but from the Russian Federation:

    If a connection between the marathon bombing suspects and Chechen separatists was established, it would mark the first time militants from the former Soviet republic have launched a deadly attack outside Russia. Chechen insurgents deny any link to marathon bombing – U.S. News

    “The Chechen Connection” has become embedded in a new media consensus. The American Homeland is potentially threatened by Muslim terrorists from the Russian Federation, who have links to Al Qaeda.

    There is also a foreign policy agenda behind the bombings. The White House has hinted that if the “Chechen brothers” had links to radical Islam, the administration “could expand intelligence-gathering efforts overseas, as well as widen surveillance and screening measures in the United States.”

    Moreover, the new terrorist narrative now involves jihadists from the Russian Federation rather than from the Middle East. There are geopolitical implications. Will the Chechen Connection be used by the administration as a renewed pretext for pressuring Moscow? What kind of media propaganda is likely to emerge?

    Al Qaeda and the CIA
    The American public is misled. The media reports carefully overlook the historical origins of the Chechnya jihadist movement and its pervasive links to US intelligence.

    The fact of the matter is that the jihadist movement is a creation of US intelligence, which has also led to the development of “political Islam”. While the role of the CIA in support of the Islamic jihad (including most Al Qaeda affiliated organizations) is amply documented, there is also evidence that the FBI has covertly equipped and incited would be terrorists within the US. (See James Corbett, The Boston Bombings in Context: How the FBI Fosters, Funds and Equips American Terrorists, Global Research April 17, 2013)

    The CIA’s agenda starting in the late 1970s was to recruit and train jihadist “freedom fighters” (Mujahideen) to wage “a war of liberation” directed against the pro-Soviet secular government of Afghanistan.
    Chechen Rebels: US Covert Operation to Destabilize the Russian Federation
    The 1994-1996 Chechen war, instigated by the main rebel movements against Moscow, served to undermine secular state institutions. The adoption of Islamic law in the largely secular Muslim societies of the former Soviet Union served US strategic interests in the region.
    What is abundantly clear is that the US government is not committed to fighting terrorists. Quite the opposite. US intelligence has been recruiting and grooming terrorists for more than thirty years, while at same time upholding the absurd notion that these terrorists, who are bona fide CIA “intelligence assets”, constitute a threat to the American Homeland.  These alleged threats by “An Outside Enemy” are part of a propaganda ploy behind the “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT).

Boston Lockdown, Chechen Blowback & Illuminati Satanists!

Great book by Dean Henderson documenting the Illuminati Banking Cartel, Big Oil, Terrorism …. etc.

  • Boston Lockdown, Chechen Blowback & Illuminati Satanists! 
    by Dean Henderson, 
    The excessive and well-televised show of force in Boston following the Marathon bombing serves to bolster the US police state and the ongoing shredding of the Bill of Rights.

    While much remains to be known about Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, RT reports that their mother Zubeidat believes they were set up, stating that the FBI had been harassing her family for years. [1]

    Veteran’s Today editor Gordon Duff revealed in an article for Press TV that the bombings were a false flag attack, and that high-level security officials believe the FBI was heavily involved in the bomb plot. [2]

    Most likely the brothers were framed and encouraged to carry out the bombing. This explains why Russian warnings about Tamerlan Tsarnev’s connection to Islamists were ignored.

    The days following the bombing included extensive use of security cameras, a no-fly zone, a city-wide lockdown, the glorification of an overwhelming and expensive security apparatus, and a decision not to read US citizen Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda Rights.

    These precedent-setting jabs at the Constitution represent the rise of a techno-fascist state where privacy is vanquished and Big Brother is welcomed into our cities, neighborhoods and even homes.

    The Ides of April
    The April 15th date of the Boston bombings is significant, since mid-April is a time of Satanic Illuminati carnage. Here is a short list from just the past 20 years:

    April 19, 1993 – ATF sets fire to the Branch Davidian compound at Waco, TX – 76 dead
    April 19, 1995 – Timothy McVeigh bombs federal building in Oklahoma City – 168 dead
    April 20, 1999 – Massacre at Columbine High School – 13 dead
    April 16, 2007 – Massacre at Virginia Tech – 32 dead
    April 20, 2010 – BP Deepwater Horizon Blowout – 11 dead, Gulf of Mexico devastated
    April 18, 2013 – Ferilizer plant explosion in West, TX – 14 dead

    Before It’s News is reporting that the explosion at the fertilizer plant may have been some type of bomb. [3]

    According to Bibliotecapleyades,
    “April 19-May 1 constitute a 13-day Satanic ritual relating to fire for the Illuminati. Fire sacrifice is required on April 19th.

    Blood Sacrifice To The Beast, a most critical 13-day period. Fire sacrifice is required on April 19. April 19 is the first day of the 13-day Satanic ritual day relating to fire – the fire god, Baal, or Molech/Nimrod (the Sun God), also known as the Roman god, Saturn (Satan/Devil). This day is a major human sacrifice day, demanding fire sacrifice with an emphasis on children. This day is one of the most important human sacrifice days, and as such, has had some very important historic events occur on this day. Remember, the Illuminati considers war to be a most propitious way to sacrifice, for it kills both children and adults.” [4]

    The CIA’s Chechen Rebels
    Western intelligence agencies have made a habit of using Islamist jihadis to destabilize governments who will not allow the Rothschild bankers to control them. From Indonesia to Iran to Afghanistan to Libya and now Syria, this pattern has remained in place.

    The breakaway Russian regions of Chechnya and Dagestan – from where the Tsarnaev brothers cme – was no exception. If the brothers did receive terrorist training it most likely came at the hands of al Qaeda CIA assets.

    (What follows is excerpted from Chapter 17: Caspian Sea Oil Grab of my book Big Oil & Their Bankers in the Persian Gulf: Four Horsemen, Eight Families & Their Global Intelligence, Narcotics & Terror Network):

    “Ever since Russian Foreign Minister Yevgeny Primakov proposed a strategic triangle between India, Russia and China as a counterbalance to US global hegemony in 1998, US establishment think tanks have been scratching their heads at how to derail the idea.  The Harvard-linked Olin Institute proposed attacking India, the weakest part of the triangle.

    Not content with the Polish Solidarist-led grab of Eastern Europe and the partitioning of Soviet Central Asian republics, the CFR/Bilderberger crowd now used mujahadeen surrogates to further squeeze Russia.

Is This The End Game For Paper Gold/Silver?


  • Is This The End Game For Paper Gold/Silver? 
    The real market in gold/silver is what is going on in the markets where physical delivery is REQUIRED.  That would be China, India, Russia, Middle East and the U.S. retail minted coin market
    – The Golden Truth, April 22, 2013

    To go along with my statement above, I find it interesting that the United States’ is going to take 7 years to deliver 300 tonnes of gold back to Germany.  Seven years.  I find it even more interesting that not many people have scrutinized this situation.  After all, it took Venezuela only about 4 months to get 200 tonnes of its gold repatriated from London and Switzerland.  Hugo Chavez may be remembered by many as a crackpot, but I have a feeling the world will soon understand why one of his last moves before he died may have been his most brilliant.  After all, Venezuela now has possession of its foreign-stored gold – Germany does not.

    Something else that has been extraordinarily overlooked, or intentionally ignored by the media, is the fact that about 80% of the recent price hit in gold/silver has occurred during Comex trading hours, after the physical buying markets in the east (China, Russia, India, et al) have gone to sleep or home for the weekend.  Please note:  the Comex is a paper trading market.  The Comex may have enough metal to settle about 5% of the entire open interest of gold and silver, if the entities long the paper contracts decided to stand for delivery.  Typically less than 1% stand for delivery each delivery month.

    So when you hear accounts that 100’s of tonnes of “gold” were dumped on the Comex market last Monday, please understand and know that this was “gold” as represented by a paper Comex gold futures contract.  On the Comex gold grows on trees – everywhere else in the world that wants to own gold, physical gold has to be delivered.

    And while that thrift shop mannequin some call “Attorney General Eric Holder” will never require that the big banks which control Comex explain why a paper bomb representing 100’s of tonnes of paper gold was dropped on the Comex, the rest of the world – including the thousands in this country trying to take advantage of the price drop by buying U.S. minted silver eagles – either can not actually buy phsyical gold/silver for delivery or have to pay substantial premiums over the spot price in order to get something delivered.   Go ahead, call your local coin dealer and ask them to sell you some 1 oz. silver eagles.  You’ll either hear “we’re out” or you’ll be offered something at around $7-8 over the current spot.  Note that the price where you can buy silver eagles – silver eagles that you can take home with you as opposed to rely on some counterparty for delivery – will cost you about the same price as it would have before the take down in the metals this past week.

Ronald Stoeferle: “Last Week We Were Really Close To A Default of The 130-to-1 Paper Gold Market”!

  • Ronald Stoeferle: “Last Week We Were Really Close To A Default of The 130-to-1 Paper Gold Market”
    by Tekoa Da Silva,
    I had the chance to reconnect today with one of the young emerging leaders of the gold market, Ronald Stoeferle, publisher of “In Gold We Trust”, the world’s definitive annual report on gold.

    During this fascinating interview, Ronald spoke to what contrarian buyers are doing right now, and further explained, “the point of maximum pessimism” has been reached, to where in response, staggering physical demand nearly broke the leveraged paper gold system over the last week.

    Starting out by commenting on the ugly sentiment displayed at last week’s European Gold Conference in Zurich, Ronald said, “If you compare the situation at the hotel bar to last year and the year before…[patronage] increased dramatically—so people were really frustrated. From a psychological point of view, it was a really interesting time to attend a gold miners conference…[because] last year’s sentiment was already extremely negative, [but] this year it was just horrible…I think this was a gathering of the last [remaining] gold bulls in Europe.”

    Further speaking to sentiment, Ronald added that, “We’ve already reached the point of maximum pessimism…We’ve seen a huge move downwards, extremely high volume, and the ‘bursting gold bubble’ [headline]…all over Europe, and all over the world. That’s a textbook panic…[Additionally], there were 15 journalists calling me on Monday…[including] many former colleagues, people who haven’t called me in years and they were [all] really panicking…They have no clue what’s going on, [and] they [all] think…Cyprus was responsible for this take-down…[So] over the last week we’ve seen desperation, panic, and anger.”

    However, these are the best markets for contrarian buyers Ronald explained, as,“Buying [pays] when there’s blood on the streeteven if it’s yours…[So] from my point of view, [this] is probably the biggest buying opportunity in this bull market—I would compare it to 1987 for stocks…as you know…[after] 1987 we’ve saw 13 years of a bull market….[So] going forward; three months, one year, two years [from now]—everybody will probably say, ‘S***, I should have bought gold in the middle of April of 2013, that was a huge buying opportunity. Everybody was panicking, [and] sentiment was at all-time lows’.”

    In terms of mining stocks which have been beaten worst of all, Ronald explained that, “[In Europe], everyone is long Nestle…pharma companies…[and] the utilities—[all] very crowded trades from my point of view. But nobody is confident when it comes to gold mining stocks. As a contrarian, that makes me really confident, so I’m going long the miners…you have to be extremely selective…[but] I think it’s the most contrarian trade you can make at the moment.

    Speaking to the major issue of paper-delivery default, Ronald said, “We’re seeing this rush to physical gold not only in the retail market, but also for the institutional players...[it’s] just overwhelming…I [estimate] a 130-to-1 [ratio of paper to physical gold]…and I think in the last week we were really close to [triggering] a default of the paper market.

    As a final comment to reassure battered gold bulls, Ronald stated that, Physical gold is cash, and it’s probably the most solid and safest [form of] cash that one can own.

EIR Exposed British-Saudi Sponsorship of Chechen Terrorists!

In this ground-breaking book, Mark Curtis reveals the covert history of British collusion with radical Islamic and terrorist groups. Secret Affairs shows how governments since the 1940s have connived with militant forces to control oil resources and overthrow governments. The story of how Britain has helped nurture the rise of global terrorism has never been told.

  • EIR Exposed British-Saudi Sponsorship of Chechen Terrorists! 
    The creation of a Chechen terrorist network by British and Saudi forces, as a tool against Russia and other Asian nations, was the subject of a series of EIR articles in the 1990s. Among the major profiles, available at, was “Russia’s North Caucasus republics: flashpoint for world war,” published in the September 10, 1999 edition.

    The British patronage of a Chechen separatist movement stemmed from Prime Minister Maggie Thatcher herself, working primarily through her ally Lord McAlpine, who conceived a project for a “Caucasus Common Market.” The on-the-ground operatives were part of the “Afghansi” terrorist movement, which is funded and heavily manned by the Saudi Wahhabites.

    After the Russians subdued the Chechen rebellion in 1996, the British shifted the operation to Dagestan, as was trumpeted in The Economist of July 18, 1998 in an article titled “Russia and Dagestan: Losing Control?” Again, the basis for the destabilization was the Wahhabite sect of Islam.

    The notorious leader of the Chechnya-based guerrilla campaign, which spread into Dagestan, was Shamil Basayev, who is known for some of the most violent acts of the terrorist movement, including the mass seizure of hostages. Basayev was trained for his jihad in the Afghansi camps, as he reported in 1995, saying that he “was preparing for war with Russia a long time before the aggression against Chechnya began.” Basayev also issued threats against China in 1998, declaring that if China referred to Chechnya as part of Russia, his group would launch support actions for the Uighur insurgency in China.

    In the late 1990s, as the EIR article details, the Chechens continued to get major financial as well as political support from the British. In the late 1990s, kidnappings, bombings, and other forms of terrorism by the Chechen guerrillas threatened to set the Caucasus region on fire again.

    In August of 1999, the Wahhabite guerrillas, led by Basayev, invaded Dagestan, but were repulsed by the Russian military.

    Basayev was eventually killed in a bomb blast in Chechnya in 2005, but the guerrilla actions promoted by his sponsors continue, in a more subdued form, today.
  • The Masonic Origins of the Muslim Brotherhood (emphasis mine)
    The Masonic origins of the Islamists movements, and their true goal to undermine Islam and fight for Western Zionist Powers such as Britain and the United States of America. The Muslim Brotherhood has acted as a clever technique to recruit agent-provocateurs for the Illuminati. The lowest ranks may sincerely believe they are defending Islam, and confronting “Western imperialism”. However, these various terrorist groups, through representing different factions, are part of a single network serving the same Illuminati cause.

    When we explore the political and financial connections of the terrorists, we find that these are not merely wayward fanatics, operating in isolation, but that their channels penetrate to the upper reaches of power, in the British and American governments, and outward into the nether regions of the occult and criminal underworlds.

    William Engdahl on Egypt’s uprising:
    They are being organized in a Ukrainian-style high-tech electronic fashion with large internet-linked networks of youth tied to Mohammed ElBaradei and the banned and murky secret Muslim Brotherhood, whose links to British and American intelligence and freemasonry are widely reported.

    Muslim Brotherhood created by British Intelligence
    Dr. John Coleman, a former British Intelligence agent…states in his report on Iran’s Islamic Revolution that the Muslim Brotherhood was created by “the great names of British Middle East intelligence”…and that their mission was to “keep the Middle East backward so that its natural resource, oil, could continue to be looted…”

    The Muslim Brotherhood is a London creation, forged as the standard-bearer of an ancient, anti-religious (pagan) heresy that has plagued Islam since the establishment of the Islamic community (umma) by the Prophet Mohammed in the seventh century. Representing organized Islamic fundamentalism, the organization called the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan al-Muslimum in Arabic) was officially founded in Egypt, in 1929, by the British agent Hasan al-Banna, a Sufi mystic. Today, the Muslim Brotherhood is the umbrella under which a host of fundamentalist Sufi, Sunni, and radical Shiite brotherhoods and societies flourish.

    The Muslim Brotherhood is a tool by the British-based Globalists whose main objective is to overthrow the established world order and create a new one-world system of global governance. Without the British, “radical Islam would have remained the illegitimate, repressive minority movement that it has always been, and the Middle East would have remained stable and prosperous.”

    The real Muslim Brothers are…the secretive bankers and financiers who stand behind the curtain, the members of the old Arab, Turkish, or Persian families whose genealogy places them in the oligarchic elite, with smooth business and intelligence associations to the European black nobility and, especially, to the British oligarchy.

    By fabricating a bogus war between Islamic fundamentalism and the West, the globalists are able to attack their real enemy, humanity. Pulling the strings, they will ensure that both Western and Muslim states are degraded and finally completely subjugated to their odious rule.
  • Terrorism And The Illuminati! A 3,000 Year History! by David Livingstone
    Contrary to myth being fabricated, Islam does not pose a threat to the West. Rather, Islamic “terrorist” organizations have been created to serve Western imperialistic objectives. These groups are intertwined with Western power through a network of occult secret societies. This relationship dates back to sixth century BC, and the birth of the Kabbalah, in Babylon; a plot to seek world domination through the use of magic and deception.

Did the FBI Just Bungle The Boston Bomb Plot, or Did It Actually Create It?

A groundbreaking work of investigative journalism, The Terror Factory: Inside the FBI’s Manufactured War on Terrorism exposes how the FBI has, under the guise of engaging in counterterrorism since 9/11, built a network of more than 15,000 informants whose primary purpose is to infiltrate Muslim communities to create and facilitate phony terrorist plots so that the Bureau can then claim it is winning the war on terror.

The federal judge presiding over the Newburgh case, Colleen McMahon, declared that it was “beyond question that the government created the crime here,” – Quote

  • Did the FBI Just Bungle The Boston Bomb Plot, or Did It Actually Create It? 
    For the past 20 years, the FBI has used informants and agent-provocateurs to induce Muslims and others to plan terrorist bombings, and in many cases it is known that the FBI actually supplied weapons, money, and explosives to individuals who otherwise would have had no capability of carrying out any sort of terrorist action on their own.

    It is well documented that an FBI informant participated in the building of the bomb that killed six and injured 1,000 at the World Trade Center in New York on Feb. 26, 1993. A former Egyptian military officer, who had also been trained by U.S. special forces, was used by the FBI to infiltrate a circle of Muslims and to help them build a bomb. At the last minute, the FBI was supposed to substitute harmless powder for the real explosives, but somehow the FBI “messed up” and left the genuine explosives in place which were then used in the deadly bombing.

    After many months of press accounts of how the FBI had cracked the case by painstaking detective work, the truth started to come out on Oct. 28, 1993, when the New York Times reported:

    “Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast.

    “The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an FBI supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad A. Salem, should be used, the informer said.

    “The account, which is given in the transcript of hundreds of hours of tape recordings Mr. Salem secretly made of his talks with law-enforcement agents, portrays the authorities as in a far better position than previously known to foil the Feb. 26 bombing of New York City’s tallest towers.”

    The FBI’s role was just recently brought up on April 16, the day after the Boston Marathon bombings, by Fox TV’s Ben Swann, on a “Reality Check” segment, who asked if the previous day’s bombings were the product of an FBI entrapment operation gone awry. Swann described the New York 1993 bombing, and said, “So the question tonight must be asked, did the FBI have any knowledge of this plot before it happened?” and, “Is the practice of the FBI creating terror plots only to break them up before they can actually happen, really making us safer? What happened here?”

    After the 9/11/2001 attacks, and continuing in the Obama Administration, the FBI has carried out numerous entrapment operations, to the extent that most terrorist prosecutions in the past ten years in the U.S. actually involved plots created by the FBI. According to a report by last summer by the Center on National Security at Fordham Law School, “there have been 138 terrorism or national security prosecutions involving informants since 2001,” and these informants have usually crossed the line “from merely observing potential criminal behavior to encouraging and assisting people to participate in plots that are largely scripted by the FBI itself.”

    One of the most egregious of these cases is the so-called “Newburgh Four” in New York State, in which an informant in 2008-09 offered the defendants $250,000, as well as weapons, to carry out a terrorist plot. The New York University Center for Human Rights and Justice reviewed this case and two others, and concluded: “The government’s informants introduced and aggressively pushed ideas about violent jihad and, moreover, actually encouraged the defendants to believe it was their duty to take action against the United States.”

    The federal judge presiding over the Newburgh case, Colleen McMahon, declared that it was “beyond question that the government created the crime here,” and she criticized the FBI for sending informants “trolling among the citizens of a troubled community, offering very poor people money if they will play some role—any role—in criminal activity.”

Jim Rogers: These are Perilous Times! They’re Printing U.S. Dollars Fast Enough to Turn Them into Confetti. Who knows How High Gold will Go as Long as We have a Mad Man Running the Central Bank !

  • Jim Rogers: These are Perilous Times! 
    by Greg Hunter’s
    Legendary investor Jim Rogers is worried about unprecedented money printing around the globe.  Rogers says, “We have never had every government debasing their currency at the same time. . . . This is the first time in recorded history where you have most of them doing it all together.  These are perilous times . . . one way or another, this is going to end badly.”  Rogers owns gold and thinks last week’s gold sell-off was a good thing.  Rogers says, “This is normal.  This is not unusual.  I welcome it.  I expect gold to go much, much, much higher over the next decade, but it will not and cannot until it starts having normal corrections.”  How high will gold go?  Rogers says, “If the U.S dollar becomes confetti, any number you want to make up.  They’re printing U.S. dollars fast enough to turn them into confetti.  Who knows how high gold will go as long as we have a mad man running the central bank.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Jim Rogers from Singapore.
