  • PressTV Published on Oct 26, 2018
    Israeli warplanes have carried out a series of airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip. Israeli jets pounded a number of areas including positions of Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas. Loud explosions were heard following the attacks. There has been no immediate report of casualties. Tel Aviv claimed the airstrikes were in response to rockets fired by Palestinians toward Israel. The Israeli military says the rockets were intercepted.

The US Dollar Is DONE! China & Saudi Arabia Will Trade Oil In Yuan

  • World Alternative Media Published on Oct 25, 2018
    Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about the currency swaps happening across the board as China convinces Saudi Arabia to trade oil in Yuan. For years, Saudi Arabia has traded with China in US Dollars, the world reserve currency, frustrating China. Well now, as the US dollar sees its inevitable precipice, China says they will compel Saudi Arabia to trade oil in Yuan! If this is done, most experts believe the rest of the oil market will move with them. China has been attempting to establish itself as the world reserve currency for quite some time as power incrementally shifts. It’s a massive phenomenon that’s not likely to stop any time soon.

    Saudi Arabia is the kingpin of OPEC and the IMF is looking to base its headquarters in China in the next few years if all works out as planned. This isn’t to mention the fact that China is pushing its centrally planned digital currency system or cashless society as the state gets more technocratic by the day, pushing social credit scores and examining every square foot with facial recognition technology. Individuals must decentralize and find a way out of this dependent system or being forced into it with little recourse. Self sustainability and independence is key!

NBC News Sat On Information That Would Have Discredited Kavanaugh Accusers

  • NBC News Sat On Information That Would Have Discredited Kavanaugh Accusers
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    While promoting obviously biased and possibly defamatory narratives is par for the course at NBC News (in another example,MSNBC’s chief political correspondent suggested last night that Russia might be behind the spate of attempted mail bombings despite having no evidence to support that claim), its decision to sit on information that undermined the claims of one of the Brett Kavanauh “accusers” wrangled by attorney/presidential candidate/charlatan Michael Avenatti is simply baffling, as the Daily Wire reported.

    After NBC aired in an interview with Julie Swetnick that undermined her testimony in a sworn affidavit (something that recently earned the pair a criminal referral to the DOJ), Avenatti presented ANOTHER sworn statement from a fourth anonymous accuser who allegedly knew Swetnick and had witnessed some of the same boorish behavior exhibited by Kavanaugh.

Gold Demand up 42% as Countries Abandon US Dollar in Expectation of Geopolitical Shift

  • Gold Demand up 42% as Countries Abandon US Dollar in Expectation of Geopolitical Shift
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Central banks around the world are turning to gold as an alternative to the US dollar, which they see as being undermined by America’s aggressive trade policy and geopolitical uncertainty.

    Demand for gold was up 42 percent year on year in the first quarter of 2018 among central banks, the World Gold Council (WGC) statistics say. Russia and Turkey are the largest net buyers.

    Central banks added a net total of 193.3 tons of bullion in the half of 2018, an 8 percent increase from the 178.6 tons bought in the same period last year. This marks the strongest six months for central bank gold buying since 2015, the WGC notes.

    As of the first half of 2018 central banks increased their gold holdings to $1.36 trillion, around 10 percent of global foreign exchange reserves, the WGC said. An analyst has told RT that the reason behind the move is a wish to diversify from the greenback.

    “The United States has long used the dollar to put pressure on competitors. This has always caused anger in the world community. And now the fight against the dollar has reached Europe,”
     said Eldiyar Muratov, President at Singapore Castle Family Office.


    “Russia has stepped up buying gold in its reserves in the face of new US sanctions and a possible disconnection from the dollar system,”
     added the analyst.


    According to Muratov, a similar strategy is now being observed in many countries in Europe and Asia. China, Turkey, Venezuela, Iran, Qatar and Indonesia, are aimed at de-dollarization of economies and foreign trade. All these countries are significantly increasing their gold reserves, the expert says.

    As the WGC notes in its report, gold buying is not only about hedging currency risks. “In an environment of heightened geopolitical tensions, gold is an attractive asset because it is not anyone else’s liability and does not carry any counterparty risk,” the report says.

    “Gold is already a familiar asset class for central banks, but the changing nature of the gold market – with ever-growing consumption coming from developing economies – means that gold is increasingly aligned with emerging market economic patterns. Central banks may increasingly recognize that the rules of the game are changing.”

Yes, Russia is Getting Ready for War – in Case US Attacks, Diplomat Tells UN

  • Yes, Russia is Getting Ready for War – in Case US Attacks, Diplomat Tells UN
    by https://www.rt.com/
    A Russian diplomat has both confirmed and denied what US war hawks have been calling out. Moscow is indeed preparing for war, he said – just in case the US starts one.

    Speaking at the UN on Friday, Andrey Belousov, deputy director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Department of Nonproliferation and Arms Control, said that Russia is indeed readying itself for war, so it can defend its people against American aggression.

    At a recent meeting, the US stated that Russia is preparing for war. Yes, Russia is preparing for war, I can confirm it.

    Russia’s military build-up and large-scale drills, often painted in the Western media as preparations for all-out war, are a defensive necessity, he said.

    “We are preparing to defend our homeland, our territorial integrity, our principles, our values, our people.”

    Russia doesn’t seek a confrontation, he said, unlike the US. “Why else would the United States pull out of the [INF] Treaty, increase their nuclear potential, adopt a new nuclear doctrine that lowers the threshold for nuclear weapons use – that’s the question for us all.”

    Russia is preparing ‘for war,’ while the US is preparing ‘war.’

    Belousov’s words came after a Russian draft resolution to reinforce the INF Treaty, which bans intermediate-range nuclear weapons, was overwhelmingly rejected at the UN First Committee. “Most of those who voted against were supporters of the INF Treaty. I don’t understand their position,” Belousov said. Among those who voted down the draft were the UK, Germany, France, and, of course, the US.

    Washington’s decision to scrap the Cold War-era agreement alarmed both Europe and Moscow, which warned it would“make the world a more dangerous place” and vowed retaliation.

    Washington has accused Russia of building missiles prohibited by the INF, while Moscow argued that American missile defense complexes in Europe can be easily turned into offensive weapons. Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that if the US moves to deploy intermediate-range nuclear missiles in Europe, it will put the whole of Europe at risk of a retaliatory strike.

Conflict with Gaza ‘Inevitable’: Israel’s Lieberman

  • Conflict with Gaza ‘Inevitable’: Israel’s Lieberman
    by Anadolu Agency, https://www.yenisafak.com/en/
    ‘We must attack them with great force,’ Israel’s hardline defense minister says

    Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Thursday that another confrontation with Hamas-run Gaza was “inevitable”. “There is no avoiding another confrontation with Hamas; we must attack them with great force,” Lieberman told Israeli public radio. “Neither [the provision of] fuel nor [the disbursement of public-sector] salaries will calm the situation [in Gaza],” he said. “Hamas leaders say they want the blockade [of the Gaza Strip] lifted, but this is not possible,” he asserted.

    Lieberman added, however, that Israel’s defense establishment would “give a chance” to ongoing Egypt-brokered truce talks with Hamas, “so they don’t say I’m dragging Israel into conflict because of my personal agenda”.

    At dawn Thursday, Israeli fighter jets bombed three sites in Gaza affiliated with the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s armed wing. Earlier the same day, the Israeli army claimed that a rocket was fired from Gaza into Israeli territory.

    The latest escalations come amid a fresh round of shuttle diplomacy by Egyptian officials between Gaza and Ramallah aimed at hammering out a Hamas-Israel truce and fostering reconciliation between Hamas and rival Palestinian faction Fatah.

Eurozone will Collapse – There is No Other Choice Economically

  • Eurozone will Collapse – There is No Other Choice Economically
    by Martin Armstrong, https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/
    QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; I can see what you have been arguing about the faulty design of the euro. After the EU rejected Italy’s budget, is there any hope left for Italy?

    RS, Rome

    ANSWER:
     For those who do not follow Europe closely, the European Union took the unprecedented step Tuesday (23rd of Oct) of rejecting Italy’s draft budget as incompatible with the bloc’s rules on fiscal discipline. This has simply validated the position many take in Italy that they are an occupied country. The Commission Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis publicly stated that the Italian government was “openly and consciously going against commitments made” to drive down the country’s debt and deficit levels. The decision is escalating a battle between Europe’s establishment and Italians and the sooner you exit the Euro, the better Italy will survive.


    From the outset, in designing the Euro they deliberately lied about just about everything. They told everyone that they would be paying the same interest rate because of the single currency. I explained that was absolutely false. They appear to have deliberately used the example of the dollar to pitch the euro but never mentioned that the single interest rate for the dollar was only the Federal level they were referencing. All 50 states issued their debt in the single currency of the dollar but they all paid rates according to their own credit rating.

    I warned them that they MUST consolidate all the debts making that a national debt where they would have a single interest rate and that would compete with the dollar. Thereafter, each state would then issue its own debt as needed and the free markets would price that accordingly. Under the system that I instructed them to adopt, this budget crisis would not exist. Because they FAILED to consolidate the debts from the outset, then the EU interferes with everyone’s budgets and dictates terms to them which in reality does make each state and occupied country. The budget of the 50 states in the USA is of no concern to the Feds because they consolidated the debts from the outset. Brussels is dictating to member states trying to pretend it is a federal debt for all which is absurd.

    This system cannot possibly survive. The Euro will collapse. There is no possible way for it to survive under this scheme. Italy should simply announce it is exiting the Eurozone. Those in Britain who want to remain are complete idiots. I cannot express it any more politely. Nobody will talk reality here! The remainers in Britain are being pushed by politicians who get pensions from the EU. They are selling out their own country to personal gain.

EU to Invite Russia, China to Join Alternative Payment Network for Iran

  • EU to Invite Russia, China to Join Alternative Payment Network for Iran
    by https://www.presstv.com/
    The European Union plans to invite Russia and China to join a future alternative payment network to the global financial services provider SWIFT to circumvent the US sanctions on Iran, according to Russia’s EU ambassador Vladimir Chizhov.

    Speaking to the Rossiya-24 TV channel, the top Russian diplomat said the future transaction system will be open to an even broader set of parties after its initial launch, adding that “there is an understanding that they will create it on their own, put it into practice and then open it for third states.”

    Chizov said the project to create a special mechanism for financial transactions with Iran bypassing the US sanctions is now in full swing. The ambassador emphasized that the EU’s high priority for maintaining financial trade with Iran.

    “Less than a half of EU members have no economic ties with Iran at all. But those who have are the biggest countries, and they are actively involved in the project, first of all the signatories of the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran’s nuclear program] – namely, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.”

    The basis for the anticipated alternative financial system was formally set in a joint statement issued in September by the remaining signatories to the Iran nuclear deal, promising to establish a ‘special purpose vehicle’ to facilitate payments related to Iran’s exports as part of efforts to salvage the JCPOA after the US withdrawal and subsequent roll-back of sanctions.

Limbaugh: Were Bomb Threats A ‘False Flag’ Operation?

  • Limbaugh: Were Bomb Threats A ‘False Flag’ Operation?
    by AMANDA PRESTIGIACOMO, @AMANDAPRESTO, https://www.dailywire.com/
    “Would it make a lot of sense for a Democrat operative or Democrat-inculcated lunatic to do it?”

    Were the intercepted bombs mailed to various high profile Democrats actually sent in some sort of “false flag” operation to help Democrats at the ballot box come November?, asked conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday.


    Law enforcement confirmed Wednesday that potentially-explosive packages sent in the mail were addressed to seven big name Democrats: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, former Attorney General Eric Holder, Democratic mega-donor George Soros, former CIA chief John Brennan, and Congresswoman Maxine Waters.

    Limbaugh openly questioned why any right-winger would be behind such an operation when Republicans have been dominating politically and such acts would only work to hurt the party. Implying some sort of left-wing operation, Rush asked if “these bombs were intended to be discovered in screening” and not actually meant to cause harm to the individuals addressed on the packages.

    “Were these bombs intended to be discovered in screening?” asked Limbaugh. He also questioned how “someone smart enough to make a bomb” could be “dumb” enough to think such packages would actually be sent to Soros or Obama.

    “It doesn’t make any sense for a Republican or conservative to do this,” suggestedthe talk show host. “If they really care about winning these elections, this makes no sense to do. This is gonna be instant fodder for the Democrats and the media to blame it on Trump and his supporters. …. It doesn’t make any sense for … a Republican or conservative, to do this, if they care about the elections. None whatsoever.”

    It would, however, make sense if a Democrat(s) were behind the devices, suggested Limbaugh. Everything has backfired on the Democrats, from their wild tactic with now Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to their uptick in “mob” tactics, he noted.

    “Would it make a lot of sense for a Democrat operative or Democrat-inculcated lunatic to do it? Because things are not working out the way they thought,” he said, adding, “Things that are supposed to cement it, like the Kavanaugh trick backfires, and these mobs are backfiring. They are not achieving their objectives.”

    “What sense does it make for a conservative Republican to gum up the works here by sending a bunch of bombs that are not gonna go off and that are gonna be discovered? It doesn’t make any sense in any way, shape, manner, or form,” emphasized the radio host.

    Limbaugh then read the following tweet from freelance journalist Alessandra Bocchi: “As a journalist, my job is to be skeptical. Terrorist attacks are committed during times of desperation, not victory. People who’ve won against Obama/Clintons/Soros have no reason to attack them now, when they’ve all but become irrelevant.”
