Is Manipulation Partly to Blame for Silver’s Plunges?

by Mike Gleason, Money Metals:
Chris Powell: Futures Markets Give High-Volume Trading Discounts to Governments

Coming up we’ll discuss the ongoing manipulation of the gold and silver markets with Chris Powell of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee. Chris tells us why he thinks the regulators are so powerless, the troubling authority that allows the government to legally rig markets, and what might happen to the metals if and when this manipulation finally comes to an end. Don’t miss a terrific interview with GATA’s Chris Powell, coming up after this week’s market update.

Well, this week brought both good news and bad news for precious metals bulls. The bad news is that gold and silver prices broke down from their major consolidation patterns. Based on the technical damage done, the momentum and the short-term trend in precious metals markets is pointing lower until new buying interest kicks in.

The Inevitability Of DeGrowth

by Charles Hugh Smith, via Peak Prosperity:
Even though we don’t know precisely how the future will unfold, we know a few things about it:

Of the 7.5 billion humans on the planet, virtually every individual wants to enjoy a high-energy consumption “middle-class” lifestyle. As a generous estimate, 1.5 billion people enjoy a high-energy consumption lifestyle today; the remaining six billion are aspirants hungry for all the goodies enjoyed by the 1.5 billion—all goodies based on affordable, abundant energy.

How Google Rigs Search and Hurts Consumers

0

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:
I’m sure all of you heard about the $2.7 billion fine imposed by the EU on Google as a result of its anti-competitive behavior, but not many of you probably know exactly what the search giant did to earn it. To shine some light on the topic, let’s take a look at a few excerpts from a recent article written by Silicon Valley antitrust lawyer Gary Reback.

Below are some choice excerpts from the piece, You Should Be Outraged at Google’s Anti-Competitive Behavior:

Before 2007, if a user searched for a product on Google, other sites listing prices for that product would appear among the general search results, ranked in the order of their quality to users. These “comparison shopping sites” were designed to identify merchants with the lowest prices. The more accurate and comprehensive their results, the higher they were ranked and the more traffic they generated.

CHRONIC CRISES NEXT FOR YELLEN AND THE FED

by Egon Von Greyerz, Gold Switzerland:
“The report of my death has been grossly exaggerated” are words that Janet Yellen is likely to utter within the next few years. It was of course Mark Twain who said it over 100 years ago, before the Fed even existed. Yellen has recently stated that there won’t be another financial crisis in her lifetime and she will most likely have to eat those words in coming years. We know that the Fed’s record of economic forecasting has been abysmal. They have never forecast or anticipated a single economic downturn. Here is what Greenspan said in 2010: “We didn’t forecast better because we can’t”.

Well there we have it from the master himself of both Fedspeak and gobbledygook. For over a century the Fed has not anticipated any of the major economic or financial events that have plagued the world. Instead of predicting these events, the Fed has actually caused most of the economic downturns or financial crashes.

The War On Cash: Australia Considering Chipping Senior’s Money To Stop Them From Saving

by Jeff Berwick, The Dollar Vigilante:
Ten years ago I wrote on my personal travel blog, “Australia sucks”. In it I detailed, “Australia seems to have more rules than any other country on the planet I have visited. There are signs outlining rules everywhere. I was even on a street that had a street-sign denoting that particular street as being an alcohol-free street. No alcohol is allowed to be consumed or even carried on that street?? I presume that even includes inside the houses on that street by the way it was written!”

I haven’t been back to Australia for years for this exact reason. It is one of the most oppressive countries in the world.

So, it actually comes as no surprise to hear that the Australian government is considering putting tiny identification chips in its $100 bills to track them and to stop people from avoiding extortion and “pensioners hoarding the money”.

How a Gunshot Changed Everything

The bullet went through his jaw… If it was 2cm lower, I wouldn’t be here today.

I’m here in Lithuania for the 8th annual Blacksmith Liberty Camp.

We have over 60 students from around the world. They came from Australia, Sri Lanka, Russia and the U.S.

But these aren’t your normal “students.” These are entrepreneurs.

ABSOLUTE MUST READ: From Pizzagate to Gold Rigging

The Clintons, Jes Staley, Jeffrey Epstein & Barclays’ Frauds OR From Pizzagate to Gold Rigging
by Mark Anthony Taylor, SGT Report.com:

Students of conspiracy should be well aware of the facts of the Clinton foundation – the ‘charity’ set up by Bill and Hillary Clinton – that received vast sums of money, from China, Russia, Qatar & Saudi Arabia, as well as being bankrolled by the key criminals of the market manipulation cartels. Given that the banks have repeatedly received Quantitative Easing to release them from their bad debts and liquidity issues, they should not have been donating to anyone, least of all to this abomination.

International Network Of 87,000 Pedophiles Dismantled — American Mass Media Silent

0

by Jay Syrmopoulos, Activist Post:
Berlin — The largely unrecognized global pandemic of child pornography has once again been thrust into the glare of the public spotlight after a massive child porn network with over 87,000 members was dismantled by German police.

A web platform called “Elysium” was utilized by the pedophile network, which existed since the end of 2016 and was accessible only through the Darknet, a hidden part of the Internet uncatalogued by search engines. The site was used to facilitate the exchange of videos and images of children, as young as toddler age, being physically and sexually abused.

According to German international broadcaster Deutsche Welle:

US Being Isolated, Petrodollar Ending, + Viewer Questions! | Jim Willie

from FinanceAndLiberty:

A trade conflict is brewing between the U.S. and Germany, Dr. Jim Willie says. “The United States is now a fascist nation.” Fascists cut across party lines and make up 75 percent of the government, Willie says. He says fascists have a tendency to alienate and defraud their allies, and the U.S. is no different. The United States is imposing sanctions on German companies working on a pipeline between Germany and Russia. Willie says these actions have crossed the line for Germany and a trade conflict is ahead. Germany will move East, he forecasts. This will further the United States’s isolation and the destruction of the U.S. dollar.

Putin’s Assessment of Trump at the G-20 Will Determine Our Future

0

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:
The backdrops to the Putin/Trump meeting are the aspirations of Israel and the neoconservatives. It is these aspirations that drive US foreign policy.

What is Syria about? Why is Washington so focused on overthrowing the elected president of Syria? What explains the sudden 21st century appearance of “the Muslim threat”? How is Washington’s preoccupation with “the Muslim threat” consistent with Washington’s wars against Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, and Assad, leaders who suppressed jihadism? What explains the sudden appearance of “the Russian threat” which has been hyped into dangerous Russophobia without any basis in fact?

The Muslim threat, the Russian threat, and the lies used to destroy Iraq, Libya, and parts of Syria are all orchestrations to serve Israeli and neoconservative aspirations.
