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 USAWatchdog.com (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.

Fund Manager: Gold & Silver Being Hit Like In 2008 To Cover-Up Impending Global Financial Crisis

  • Fund Manager: Gold & Silver Being Hit Like In 2008 To Cover-Up Impending Global Financial Crisis
    by https://www.silverdoctors.com/
    Dave Kranzler provides a very critical update today on what is going on with gold, silver, and the broader markets. Here are the details…

    by Dave Kranzler of Investment Research Dynamics 
    In 2008, gold was taken from $1020 to $700 and silver was pounded from $21 to  $7 during the period of time that Bear Stearns, Lehman and the U.S. financial system was collapsing.  The precious metals were behaving inversely to what would have been expected as the global financial system melted down.   Massive Central Bank intervention was at play.

    Currently the price of gold and silver are being dismantled by what appears to be massive hedge fund shorting of Comex paper gold.  As of last Tuesday, the “managed money” trader category as detailed in the Commitment of Traders report showed that the hedge funds were short a record amount of paper gold.

    As of yesterday the open interest in Comex paper gold was about 17,000 contracts higher than the open interest shown in last week’s COT report.  This represents another 1.7 million ozs – or 48 tonnes – of paper gold that has been dumped on the market.  It is highly probable, if not a certainty, that most of the increase in short interest is attributable to hedge fund algos chasing the paper price of gold lower.

    Meanwhile, behind the scenes, the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) has been actively intervening in the physical gold market during July, as detailed by Robert Lambourne, a consultant to GATA:

Lord Jacob Rothschild Claims “New World Order” Is At Risk

  • DAHBOO777 Published on Aug 10, 2018
    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: Learn More: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-0…

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!

CRISIS In Latin America As Currencies PLUMMET! The Next Domino To Fall?

  • World Alternative Media Published on Aug 15, 2018
    Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen as several Latin American currencies plummet! This is no surprise as all fiat currencies eventually revert to their true value of zero as they have since 1024 AD in China every single time. Still, it’s shocking a lot of people. We’ve recently reported on the massive inflation hitting Argentina for what seems like the millionth time in the past century which in reality isn’t too far off. The Argentinian Peso has seen a huge drop in purchasing power this past year. We’ve also been reporting on the hyperinflation hitting Venezuela for years. We can thank vast centralization and manipulation for these struggles.

    Well it appears the Brazilian Real, the Mexican and Columbian Pesos and largely all of Latin America is struggling right now. Argentina is trying to force its banking system to shift away from short term funding, has cancelled the daily dollar auction and has phased out its short term Lebacs program. The Peso saw a cliff dive following these moves. Then the Argentinian central bank stepped in and raised 7-day rates by 500bps to 45%! Emerging market investors are panicking for good reason. This is an obvious sign of the desperate sentiment of the central banking system. This has seen reactions in Brazil, Mexico, Chile and Columbia. But alas, this is expected. We cannot expect history’s greatest tricks of central planning to end any differently than it has over and over again for a thousand years. They are propping up that which does not live. It is getting heavier and heavier as the days roll on and eventually it will fall on top of the populace.

    The longer it is put off, the worse it will be. Individuals must branch out from under the watchful eye of the global complex. Individuals must be independent and self sustainable. Financially educated and responsible. We cannot continue to be dependent on an entity which benefits from our dependence.

We will all be trillionaires but can’t afford breakfast !

9 Jan 1988 cover, The Economist: Get Ready for a World Currency by 2018! The Rise of the Phoenix world currency from the ashes of national fiat currencies ie. destruction of fiat currencies via hyperinflation. “Phoenix” is of course an occult metaphor. Out of the destruction, the ashes of the old world order, the Luciferian New World Order will rise like a Phoenix!

Turkey’s Solution to Lira Crisis Will Be to Dedollarize Its Economy – Economist

  • Turkey’s Solution to Lira Crisis Will Be to Dedollarize Its Economy – Economist
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    Turkey’s currency continues to tumble amid escalating US pressure on Ankara. On Sunday, Finance Minister Berat Albayrak assured Turks that the government was preparing a plan of action to respond to the crisis. Speaking to Sputnik, geopolitics and finance analyst Tom Luongo explained some of the possible knock-on effects of the lira’s drop.

    Sputnik: Turkey has been struggling with the decline of the lira for a while, with fears that the currency could weaken even further. What’s your prognosis, and what do you make of hopes for a reversal of this trend?

    Tom Luongo:
     I think that when we get to a point where everybody’s talking about it and it’s front page news, we’re probably going to be pretty close to the bottom.


    We’re getting close to max pain, and I think that President Erdogan’s position here is going to be ‘If you’re going to take Turkey down, we’re going to take everybody with you’. Because when the lira dropped precipitously, we saw immediate reaction from the Financial Times, Zero Hedge and other places that this was creating contagion effects into Europe…

US is Seeking to Stab Turkey ‘in the Back’: Erdogan

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

  • Erdogan Calls Lira’s Collapse ‘Currency Plot’ Amid Spat With Washington
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    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.

Contagion Hits Latin America: Argentine Peso, Brazilian Real Plummet

  • Contagion Hits Latin America: Argentine Peso, Brazilian Real Plummet
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    While the Turkish collapse has managed to stabilize (if that’s the right word) for the time being, it appears Europe’s close has refocused attention on South American EM as the peso and and real plunge.

    First, Argentina is attempting to force its banking system to shift away from short-term funding, has canceled the daily dollar auction and phased out its short term Lebacs (bills) program amid concerns of successful rolling over, offering 1-year notes and beyond instead. The peso reacted badly immediately.

    However, the central bank then stepped in and just unexpectedly hiked 7-day rates by 500bps to 45%.
