Greg Hunter’s Weekly Update: Brennan Loses Security Clearance, Big Tech Killing Free Speech, Dollar, Trade War And Global Reset

  • Greg Hunter’s Weekly Update: Brennan Loses Security Clearance, Big Tech Killing Free Speech, Dollar, Trade War And Global Reset
    by Greg Hunter’s (WNW 348, 8.17.18)
    Obama Administration CIA Director John Brennan had his security clearance revoked by President Trump. Brennan says it’s an attack on Trump’s critics. Others say it’s the beginning of punishment for being the “ringleader” of a soft coup to remove Donald Trump from office. Are indictments of Brennan and his co-conspirators coming soon?

    Say something that big tech companies do not like and you can be banned from social media platforms such at Twitter and Facebook. It’s not just people like Alex Jones getting banned, it is also GOP congressional candidates such as Elizabeth Heng whose family story about escaping brutal communist dictator Pol Pot in Cambodia is considered “obscene.”

    Lots of people are worried about the U.S. dollar. Is it going to continue to rise in value? Is the Fed going to keep raising interest rates on the short end of the curve? Can emerging markets like Turkey survive without an economic meltdown? All good questions, and we will try to give you the answers.

Erdogan Calls Lira’s Collapse ‘Currency Plot’ Amid Spat With Washington

  • Erdogan Calls Lira’s Collapse ‘Currency Plot’ Amid Spat With Washington
    Earlier, in response to Washington’s move to double the steel and aluminum tariffs already in place against imports from Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a speech that while the US has its dollars, “Turkey has its God.”

    Erdogan has called lira’s tumble a “currency plot,” noting that “those who move the currency think that they can destroy Turkey.” Earlier in the day, addressing supporters in the Turkish town of Unye, the president urged people in Turkey to sell dollars and euros to support Turkish lira. “It is wrong to dare bring Turkey to its knees through threats over a pastor,” Erdogan stressed.

    The Turkish President stated the recent US policy toward its strategic ally Ankara “annoyed, upset” the country. “I am calling on those in America again. Shame on you, shame on you. You are exchanging your strategic partner in NATO for a priest,” the president added.

    Following Washington’s announcement, the exchange rate of the Turkish lira reached the all-time low, collapsing by more than 16 percent to the US dollar. Earlier, US President Donald Trump authorized a doubling of tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Turkey.

Italy Expects Financial Market Attack in August – Govt Official

  • Italy Expects Financial Market Attack in August – Govt Official
    by Crispian Balmer, Reuters,
    * “Hungry speculative funds” eye Italy, says Giorgetti
    * Italy foreign minister says euro shelters Italy
    * League econ chief says Italy might need a “Plan B”

    ROME, Aug 12 (Reuters) – Speculators will probably attack Italian financial markets this month but the country has the resources to defend itself, a senior and highly influential government official said in a newspaper interview on Sunday.

    Giancarlo Giorgetti, undersecretary in the prime minister’s office and a leading light in the far-right League party, said thin summer trading volumes helped fuel market assaults.

    “I expect an attack (in August),” Giorgetti told Libero. “The markets are populated by hungry speculative funds that choose their prey and pounce … In the summer the market volumes are small, you can lay the groundwork for aggressive initiatives against countries. Look at Turkey.”

    Turkish markets slumped last week on growing concerns over the country’s economy and political leadership.

    Italian assets have also come under strain in recent weeks, with investors concerned that the governing coalition, made up of the League and the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement, might tear up EU fiscal rules to pay for big-spending budget plans.

    “If the (market) storm comes, we will open our umbrella. Italy is a big country and has the resources to react, thanks in part to its large amount of private savings,” said Giorgetti, who is seen as a moderating force within the League.

    Quoting a report by bankers’ federation Fabi, Italian newspapers said on Sunday household savings in Italy totalled some 4.4 trillion euros against 2.2 trillion in 1998.

    “PLAN B”
    In an interview with Il Foglio newspaper on Saturday, Foreign Minister Enzo Moavero Milanese, who is not a member of any political party, said the collapse of Turkey’s lira currency showed how important it was for Italy to be a part of the euro.

Turkey Faces Tough Choices as It Teeters on Brink of Economic Collapse

  • Turkey Faces Tough Choices as It Teeters on Brink of Economic Collapse
    by Deena Kamel,
    Measures needed include aggressive interest-rate increases, tackling inflation, mending international relations, and IMF rescue as last resort, analysts say

    Turkey’s government faces politically unsavoury measures to pull the country back from the brink of economic collapse amid risks of contagion by European banks and emerging markets.

    Gripped by one of the worst currency routs in emerging market history, Turkey’s economic pain could spread beyond its banking system to import-reliant sectors and heighten the risk of exposure of European lenders, particularly Spanish and Italian ones, to the crisis, analysts said. Taking a cue from countries that suffered currency collapse, Turkey’s options include tighter monetary policy and a rescue package from the International Monetary Fund–both unappealing to policymakers.

    “International investors would like to see the same actions taken in Argentina recently: much higher interest rates, [and] a commitment to address inflation, improve fiscal performance and engage with multi-lateral lenders like the IMF,” Hasnain Malik, equity strategist at Exotix Capital, said.

    The Turkish lira sank to its lowest levels since 2001, roiling global markets on Friday, as tensions flared between Nato allies Turkey and the United States over Ankara’s imprisonment of an American pastor.

    On Friday, US President Donald Trump doubled tariffs on Turkish metal imports. Retorting to Mr Trump’s move, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged the country’s citizens on Saturday to support the lira, to win a “war of independence”.

    “If there are dollars under your pillow, take these out. If there are euros, take these out. Immediately give these to the banks and convert to Turkish lira and by doing this, we fight this war of independence and the future. Because this is the language they understand,” he said.

  • X22Report Published on Aug 10, 2018
    Core inflation soars at its fastest pace since 2008, inflation is on its way. The Swiss National Bank purchases more FANG stocks to push the stock market up. Trump is now destroying the old economy and getting it ready for the new economy. The only way to do this is to destroy the central bank, if the central bank is destroyed this will only be a temporary fix and the samething will happen years down the line.

“It’s a F**king Bloodbath” – Emerging Markets Collapse As Turkey Tantrum Spread

  • “It’s a F**king Bloodbath” – Emerging Markets Collapse As Turkey Tantrum Spread
    by Tyler Durden,
    Throughout July, many sell-side analysts saw the ‘stability’ in EM assets as a sign that the worst was over and urged investors to pile back in to take advantage of ‘blood on the streets’ in EM at these cheap levels.

    But, as one veteran EM trader in Brazil exclaimed to us this morning “this is a fucking bloodbath,” adding that “liquidity has disappeared” and as spooked retail investors pile out of ETFs (that their advisers said were no brainers), the pressure in real markets is explosive. Emerging Market FX is indeed a bloodbath…

    While Turkey’s Lira is the biggest loser on the week (and day), no matter where you look, it’s carnage…

Lord Rothschild: The New World Order Is At Risk

  • Mr ‘Pyramid’ himself saying what those of us who study the Luciferian New World Order has concluded/deducted with the election of Donald Trump. Trump is messing up their plans by anywhere between 10-25 years. Publicly, Trump has declared war on Globalism(see video bottom of post). ‘Globalism‘ is a euphemism for the process towards a Luciferian New World Order, World Government led by the Anti-Christ.
  • What will Mr Pyramid and his Council of 12/13 do, to get back towards the path for a Luciferian World Government? They will have to amend their plans drastically. They can no longer rely on the USA to do their bidding. Trump will simply tell the Anti-Christ, world leader to “Go jump in the lake! Submit to World Government my Ass!”. 
  • Mr Pyramid has got his “boy wonder” as the European New World Leader. He is running out of time. I know it, he knows it, those of us who are awake know it. The fallen angels are about to be kicked out of heaven, onto earth in fulfillment of Revelation 12. What is he and the Satanic bloodlines about to do?

    Revelation 12 New King James Version (NKJV)
    The Woman, the Child, and the Dragon
    12 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. 2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.

    3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

    Satan Thrown Out of Heaven
    7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they [a]did not prevail, nor was a place found for [b]them in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

    The Woman Persecuted
    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. 14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

    Revelation 17 New King James Version (NKJV)
    12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

    15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which you [g]saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. 18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”

    Emmanuel Macron’s Rothschild years make him an easy election target
    Stint at investment bank leaves centrist candidate vulnerable in French campaign
    When Emmanuel Macron told friends in 2008 he was joining Rothschild, the prestigious investment bank, the then 30-year-old civil servant was warned it could scupper a future career in politics. “You’re conscious that banking is not any kind of job? And Rothschild not any kind of bank?” said one friend to the man who, nine years later, would become frontrunner in France’s presidential election.

  • Lord Rothschild: The New World Order Is At Risk
    by Tyler Durden,
    Over the past three years, an unexpected voice of caution has emerged from one of the most legendary families in finance: Lord Jacob Rothschild. 

    Readers may recall that as part of the RIT Capital Partners 2014 annual report commentary, the scion of Rothschild family warned that “the geopolitical situation is most dangerous since WWII.” One year later, Jacob Rothschild again warned about the outcome of “what is surely the greatest experiment in monetary policy in the history of the world“, and then again in August 2017 he cautioned that “share prices have in many cases risen to unprecedented levels at a time when economic growth is by no means assured.”

    Little did he know that they were only going to keep rising, but related to that, he also made another warning which the market has so far blissfully ignored:

    The period of monetary accommodation may well be coming to an end. Geopolitical problems remain widespread and are proving increasingly difficult to resolve.

    Fast forward to today when in the latest half-year commentary from RIT Capital Partners, Lord Rothschild has made his latest warning to date, this time focusing on the global economic system that was established after WWII, and which he believes is now in jeopardy.

    The billionaire banker pointed to the US-China trade war and the Eurozone crisis as the key problems putting economic order at risk, and the lack of a “common approach” – a reference to the gradual unwind of globalization in the wake of President Trump – that has made “co-operation today much more difficult”:

    In 9/11 and in the 2008 financial crisis, the powers of the world worked together with a common approach. Co-operation today is proving much more difficult. This puts at risk the post-war economic and security order.”

    It wasn’t clear if he was referring to the post-war fiat standard that emerged once FDR devalued the dollar relative to gold, and then fixed a price for the yellow metal, a tenuous link that was subsequently destroyed by Nixon who finally took the US off the gold standard, or the primacy of the dollar which emerged as the world’s reserve currency after the end of WWII, but whenever one of the people who profited handsomely from the “post war world order” warns it may be on its last legs, it may be time to worry.

  • Rothschild worried about new world economic order
    Jacob Rothschild has voiced concern about the global financial system that was established after WWII. The billionaire banker points to the US-China trade war and eurozone crisis as the key problems putting economic order at risk.

Macron election victory speech hands up under eye of pyramid.

From: Vintage ‘Trees’ music video. All humanity forming a pyramid worshipping, welcoming the Satanic capstone! The Anti-Christ, the bringer of false peace, the white horseman of Revelation 6 ! The completion of the New World Order project, in a world wrecked by global wars, collapse and chaos!

Who owns the world reserve currency, the dollar, the global monetary hegemony? Look at the Satanic capstone on your dollar bill. The Luciferian New World Order will be complete with the arrival of the Satanic capstone: the Anti-Christ, fake messiah, bringer of false peace, the white horseman of Revelation 6!

To Prepare For The Transition The US Must Source Gold Or We Fall Into A 3rd World Nation: Jim Willie

    August 4th:  topics covered include the growing awareness by the population that something is not right with fake news network stories turned silly with widespread internet and mainstream censorship with a gathering storm in grassroots economic recession which does not match the official government stories (COGNITIVE DISSONANCE WITHIN REICH ECONOMICS), the massive unemployment during vicious recession called all strong positive growth, the bond market expansion with potential forced pension investment in Special USTreasury Bonds, the elite policy changes from the Euro Central Bank in rainy day fund and Bank For Intl Settlements in concealing debt as hidden defense mechanisms against what they might perceive as the emerging Systemic Lehman Event in a global financial crisis during the climax global breakdown underway, as nothing was resolved since 2008 while all major sovereign bonds have turned subprime and many banking systems in ruins, the gradual installation & implementation of the Gold Standard from the many substantial Eastern endeavors, where the United States must source the gold for a new gold-backed currency with the ongoing concurrent risk from the $600 billion trade deficit, which must be eliminated, or else the USA falls into the Third World from the isolation in reaction to overdone desperate sanctions, including to our own US allied nations like Germany.
