US Navy Preps For WAR: New ‘Sea Dragon’ Weapon Data Hacked By Chinese

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

The new Navy “Sea Dragon” is a secret weapon being developed by the government and an unknown defense contractor. The weapon is said to be able to give its submarines a new, “disruptive offensive capability” to take on enemy ships.

The previously unknown weapon, dubbed the “Sea Dragon”, is most likely a new version of a versatile air defense missile capable of pinch-hitting as an anti-ship missile. The Washington Post broke the story over the weekend that Chinese hackers had compromised the computers of a Navy contractor and stolen 614 gigabytes of data. The stolen data pertained to the Navy’s Naval Undersea Warfare Center, which conducts research and development on submarine systems. According to the Post, the stolen data includes, “signals and sensor data, submarine radio room information relating to cryptographic systems, and the Navy submarine development unit’s electronic warfare library.”

Countries are stockpiling gold

by Tom Lewis, Gold Telegraph:

With Venezuela’s currency, the bolivar, nearly valueless, President Maduro is trying to encourage people to save by having the country’s central bank issue gold certificates. Maduro and his wife were seen purchasing gold certificates for 350 bolivars. This certificate is allegedly backed by 1.5 grams of gold and is numbered Certificate No. 1. First Lady Cilia Flores outdid her husband by purchasing a certificate for 2.5 grams. President Maduro made a point of telling the cameras, “If I had a little more savings in bolivars I would have invested more.”

He is urging citizens to follow suit and invest in gold, promoting the certificates as “fashionable Christmas presents.” This is a huge change in policy and the first time citizens have had the opportunity to invest directly in Venezuela’s gold.

Italy’s Salvini: “We Need A Mass Cleansing, Street By Street, Quarter By Quarter” In The EU


from, ZeroHedge:

Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini continues to pile the pressure on Brussels and expose his more fascist credentials as he warned today that it will be decided within a year “whether a united Europe still exists or not,” according to Germany’s Der Spiegel.

“Whether the whole thing has no sense any more” will be seen in particular in talks on budget and within context of 2019 European Parliament elections.

On migrants, Salvini confirmed:

“We can’t take even one more, actually we want to hand over a couple,” adding that…

he is aware his stand on migrants could lead to fall of Chancellor Angela Merkel but this isn’t Italy’s intention “even though we’re very distant, not just on the migration issue.”

Our Economic Future is Revealed in the Past

from The Daily Coin:

While this interview is approximately 2 years old the information is relevant to understanding China’s role in regards to the unfolding cryptocurrency menace. Please understand we are not saying this is the end-all of the past revealing the future – it is simply one, in our opinion, of the important pieces of the puzzle. This is also part of a new series that I am currently working on that will tie together some of the new technologies that are being revealed and how China, the IMF and BIS are working in tandem to deliver a new global monetary system. This new system will not be revealed in a way that most people believe it will come about – in one death-defying economic collapse. It will be slow, under the radar and virtually unknown to most people. This is already happening.

Russia and China, as I have stated during many of the Shadow of Truth shows, according to James Corbett, are in fact using the same playbook and simply playing their role in the overall “theatre” that we are allowed to see. These players are all on the same team, Russia, China and the USA using the same playbook – good guys and bad guys for the entertainment and distraction of the masses.

In April 2017 one of the more important pieces of the puzzle was revealed by the IMF – how to get cash out peoples hands without them creating too much noise

Although some countries most likely will de-cash in a few years, going completely cashless should be phased in steps. The de-cashing process could build on the initial and largely uncontested steps, such as the phasing out of large denomination bills, the placement of ceilings on cash transactions, and the reporting of cash moves across the borders. Further steps could include creating economic incentives to reduce the use of cash in transactions, simplifying the opening and use of transferrable deposits, and further computerizing the financial system. 

The private sector led de-cashing seems preferable to the public sector led decashing. The former seems almost entirely benign (e.g., more use of mobile phones to pay for coffee), but still needs policy adaptation. The latter seems more questionable, and people may have valid objections to it. De-cashing of either kind leaves both individuals and states more vulnerable to disruptions, ranging from power outages to hacks to cyberwarfare. In any case, the tempting attempts to impose de-cashing by a decree should be avoided, given the popular personal attachment to cash. A targeted outreach program is needed to alleviate suspicions related to de-cashing; in particular, that by de-cashing the authorities are trying to control all aspects of peoples’ lives, including their use of money, or push personal savings into banks. The de-cashing process would acquire more traction if it were based on individual consumer choice and cost-benefits considerations. Source

Part one of my new series will be released on August 24 with subsequent parts released on August 26 and beyond.

The Daily Coin has been accused of believing that China is going “save us from the economic collapse or the Federal Reserve Note” or some such nonsense because of the interviews we have conducted with Jeff Brown about China. We do not and have not stated anything of this type. We do, however, understand that China will be the new global center of power and will dominate the global economy, financial markets and monetary system. In order to understand this if one merely reviews the facts the picture becomes quiet clear as to who has the IMF and BIS’ ear – the monetary-masters of the world.

Putting all the pieces of a puzzle together takes time. Some of the pieces were put in place a great many years ago, if not decades ago. The following video should help as this brave new world continues unfolding before our very eyes.

During the interview below, Mr. Corbett, does in fact discuss the virtues of peer-to-peer cryptocurrencies being a solution to the overall problem. It would be interesting to hear his thoughts today regarding this topic and how it fits with the overall “engineering” of a world currency, a world governance and total domination of the citizens of this planet.

Investigative Journalist James Corbett of the Corbett Report joins me with some very bad news about the New World Order. James says that despite the formation of the BRICS Banks, the Shanghai Gold Exchange and the new Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), the International Banker’s plans to usher in their New World Order remain firmly in place and on track. How could that be when the evidence suggest that the world is moving away from the Dollar as wealth moves from West to East? Because, James says, “At the very top of this Bankster pyramid, the Chinese elite is connected directly in with the U.S. Western elite.”

James has carefully documented the “8 Immortal Families” in his report on China and the New World Order which shows how the 8 Immortals are totally connected to Henry Kissinger and the Rockefeller-Rothschikld banking elite. This is the way they will lead us into a New WORLD Order.

“The West is being engineered into a world system of governance and government that can only come about through the rise of the East. It’s been puppeteered from the very start. There is no doubt that China’s rise right now is something that has been long planned for and carefully engineered.” Source

Olympic Games In South Korea – Perfect Opportunity For A False Flag Attack?


by Brandon Smith, Alt Market:

The war rhetoric surrounding North Korea on both sides of the Pacific has never been more aggressive than it has been the past year (at least not since the Korean War). There are some people that see the entire affair as a “distraction,” a distraction that will never amount to actual conflict. I disagree with this sentiment for a number of reasons.

North Korea is indeed a distraction, but still a distraction in the making. That is to say, the chest beating and saber rattling are merely a prelude to the much more effective distraction of live combat and invasion in the name of regime change and “national security.” As I noted in my article “Korean War Part II: Why It’s Probably Going To Happen,” the extensive staging of military assets to the region that has not been seen in over a decade, the extremely swift advancement of North Korean missile technology to include ICBMs capable of reaching the mainland U.S., the strange and unprecedented language by China indicating that they will not intercede against an invasion of North Korea by the U.S. “if Pyongyang attacks first….” All of this and more shows a clear movement of chess pieces into place for a sudden action.

According to these factors, I am led to believe that a false flag event blamed on North Korea, or a prodding of North Korea into taking an attack posture, is likely. The purposes behind such a war would be many-fold. Primarily, the final implosion of the vast financial bubbles created by central bank stimulus measures could be undertaken while the banks themselves escape public blame or prosecution.

A geopolitical crisis large enough would provide a perfect scapegoat for an economic crisis that was going to develop eventually anyway. And, if this geopolitical crisis were initiated by a “rogue state,” along with the poor decisions of a conservative “populist” president (Trump), then the historical narrative would be complete. Future generations would talk about the “great blunder” of sovereign states and nationalists and how hubris and greed and ego led to a global fiscal disaster and unnecessary destruction. The rationale for a one world governmental authority would be planted in the minds of the populace.

Will a war in North Korea be the trigger event for this narrative? It’s hard to say, as there are so many potential geopolitical powder kegs around the world. However, ample assets to initiate this kind of event are present around North Korea. And, unlike hot spots like Syria and Iran, North Korea offers the most immediate and tangible threat in the minds of many people with its nuclear arsenal.

The pure panic and mindless reactionary thinking that can be provoked in the unprepared when the danger of nukes is present is quite powerful. This could not have been made more clear than this past week when an “accidental” warning of a live ICBM launch occurred in Hawaii.

The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency now claims that this false alarm was started by a single employee, who has not been named.  How? They somehow “pushed the wrong button” … twice!

I find this explanation absurd. I can only find one example of a false alarm similar to the one in Hawaii, and this took place way back in 1971 with a mix-up of tapes leading to a broadcast warning of imminent attack on the U.S. After this event, the alert system was subject to streamlining and stopgaps designed to prevent it from ever happening again. During the false alarm of 1971, over six attempts were made for cancellation broadcasts, the first one within about ten minutes of the initial false alarm. In Hawaii, no cancellation was attempted for nearly 40 minutes.

To add to the overall strangeness, there was yet another false missile alarm in Japan within the same week!  Yet again, this alert was immediately attributed to North Korea, but at least this time the alert was corrected 5 minutes later instead of 40.

To me, this smells of a psyop; a test to gauge public reactions to a threat, as well as planting preconceived notions of a particular bogeyman. The public did not disappoint.

Eye witnesses described people “running and crying in the streets,” completely bewildered as to what to do. An associate of mine (who is also experienced in preparedness) was in Hawaii at the time of the event. She related to me that her family decided to shelter in place because there were no indications that fallout shelters were available anyway. Other people tried to lower their children into the sewers in an effort to escape a nuclear blast. Here is a video showing the false missile alert causing hysteria in Hawaii:

(As a side note, sheltering in a sewer during an actual nuclear event is the height of stupidity. Nuclear blasts send irradiated particulates into the air. These particulates then settle in the streets or are washed out of the air by rainfall. This water becomes a highly concentrated dose of irradiated particulates which are then drained down into the sewers. You might survive the initial blast, you might not, but you are certain to die from radiation if waiting out the attack in a sewer. Shelter in a dry basement instead with as much matter density between you and the outside as possible. Keep in mind that whatever place you choose to shelter is where you will likely have to stay for at least two weeks, or until the nuclear half life of the particulates has run its course.)

Obviously the average American is completely unprepared for a real attack of a minor magnitude, let alone the magnitude of a nuclear blast. Perhaps this reaction in Hawaii was so prevalent because Hawaii tends to be left leaning to the extreme, and leftists are generally poorly prepared for anything beyond a cancellation by their manicurists. That said, the fact that this “mistake” happened to take place in Hawaii  and Japan which are already under stress due to the ballistic missile tests of North Korea is an interesting coincidence indeed.

Seeing what the reaction in Hawaii was like, a real attack presents an alluring opportunity for the establishment. The pure terror involved in just the potential of a nuclear attack is palpable, and this fear makes the masses easy to manipulate. Should a real attack take place, either by North Korea or by other agencies through false flag, when is the most advantageous time?

Keep Going. This Too Shall Pass.


by Doug “Uncola” Lynn, The Toll Online:

Like the weather when a storm approaches, or as the seasons turn, or waves pounding on a shoreline, any deviations are measured and compared by speed and intensity. The same can be said for headlines: Omnibus, discouraged Deplorables, rumors of war, prospects of peace, economic bubbles, fluctuating markets, and political intrigue. Round and round it goes; when it ends, nobody knows. It’s a time of transition; and when traveling over mountaintops, through valleys, and on rough seas, no one has all of the answers.

Even when looking at maps.

The Latent Objectives of Saudi Crown Prince’s Maiden Foreign Tour


by Salman Rafi Sheikh, New Eastern Outlook:

Whereas the Saudi crown prince, Muhammad Bin Salman (MBS), ‘the modernizer’, has ostensibly set on his maiden foreign tour to attract investment and transfer of technology from foreign investors to make his vision 2030 a national and commercial success, it is just more than a coincidence that the route of his tour coincides with the countries that have been directly and indirectly aiding the House of Saud in its tussle and indirect war with Iran, and some of which are also a party to the Iran-nuke deal. Talk about Egypt, a country that was one of the countries to commit its military to the Saudi led coalition that invaded Yemen, or the United Kingdom that has been selling weapons worth billions to the House of Saud, which the later has been using against the Houthis, an indigenous ethnic group in Yemen that the Kingdom claims is receiving support from Iran. Let’s not also forget the United States, which has been the Kingdom’s main ally and is even willing to scrap the Iran-nuke deal. Therefore, in his visits, MBS’ one of the main point of concerns to discuss with his allies is to find ways to lure them deeper into the regional conflict against Iran, whose supreme leader, MBS thinks, is a new Hitler, convince them of scrapping the Iran deal and thus build up international momentum for rolling back Iran’s influence that comes at the expense of Saudi influence, which is witnessing not just the rise of Iran but also Turkey, which the MBS recently included in his regional ‘axis of evil’ and unwittingly locked Iran and Turkey, at least in his calculations, into an alliance, adding to his difficulties.

The Wild East: Airlines in South & Southeast Asia

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

Huge aircraft orders, booming traffic, dozens of upstarts with easy mega-funding, fierce competition, already a big collapse, and allegations of shady business.

As of October 31, Airbus had 6,245 members of the A320neo family on order, of which around 250 had already been delivered. Even taking into account the large discounts which are the norm for large orders, the estimated value for this order book alone was in the region of about US$705 billion. Boeing had 4,783 members of the 737MAX family on order, with 241 already delivered, and an estimated order book value for this family of aircraft alone of US $526 billion.

The US Dollar Is Getting Crushed by the Yuan — and China Isn’t Even Trying Yet

by Darius Shahtahmasebi, The Anti Media:

China is struggling to rein in the yuan in its global currency chess game against the United States, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Independent media is under attack — and we need your help to save it! Click here to become an Anti-Media patron.

According to the WSJ, after spending most of last year defending the yuan, China’s central bank is looking to “rein” in its recent ascent, which has been a notable climb compared to the dollar. From the WSJ:

“Driven by an unexpectedly prolonged softening of the dollar, the Chinese currency has surged to around its strongest level against the greenback since its surprise devaluation in August 2015. The yuan is now on track for its best monthly performance since April 1980, rising 3% against the dollar so far in January.” [emphasis added]

However, according to the WSJ, the yuan’s move coincides with a number of other currencies that are fast covering ground against the dollar. The euro has reportedly made a 3.5 percent gain while the Japanese yen has made a 3.8 percent gain against the dollar so far this month.

Just last Friday, the yuan made a further 0.2 percent gain against the dollar.

The WSJ describes this success as somewhat of a “policy headache” for the Chinese government, which regularly devalues its own currency to maintain an edge in exports. If the yuan keeps increasing, government advisers and analysts predict it “could encourage speculative fund flows from overseas and hurt exports amid already rising trade tensions between China and the Western world, particularly the U.S,” the WSJ reports.

“This is not what the central bank would like to see,” said Xiao Lisheng, a senior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, a government think tank.

“The central bank wants the renminbi (yuan) to move up and down according to market supply and demand,” he added. “Now it’s basically being held hostage by the dollar index.” 

However, despite this, one thing the WSJ fails to mention is the fact that the U.S. is fast losing its control over the global financial market as country after country begins adopting the yuan for global trade.

According to the WSJ, the People’s Bank of China, which fixes the yuan’s daily official rate, allows the yuan to strengthen if the dollar weakens, and vice versa, allowing the yuan to weaken if the dollar strengthens. This predictability allows for safe “one-way bets,” though it seems to indicate that should the dollar start to strengthen again this year, China may put a dent in the yuan’s rise.

The issue for China, of course, is that in return, a weak yuan brings in a ludicrous amount of money into the country from its trade with the U.S. As the WSJ explains:

Venezuela: The Inflationary Nightmare

by Virginia Fidler, Gold Telegraph:

Venezuela may have achieved the socialist dream. It once had gold and oil in abundance, yet now, people are starving, and toilet paper is a luxury.

Venezuelans can no longer afford the most basic necessities. During the first quarter of 2018, consumer prices rose again, this time by 454 percent. Hyperinflation has made the bolivar essentially worthless. The country experienced 8,900 percent inflation in just 12 months.
