Demand For Physical Precious Metals Surge Due To Fears About Disruptions In The Global Supply Chain

by Steve St. Angelo, SRSRocco Report:

According to a precious metals dealer I spoke with, the world out on the street is that demand for gold and silver has recently surged due to investor concerns about a disruption to the Global Supply Chain.  We are already seeing a massive slowdown in China’s oil demand as official reports show a 20% reduction in oil consumption.

However, I believe China’s oil demand is much lower than the 20% figure reported by Bloomberg and reposted by on Feb. 3rd:

Shining a Light on the Mystery Gold “Exports” from the UK

by Jan Nieuwenhuijs, Voima Gold:

An administrative amendment by the UK Statistics Authority has caused a meaningless anomaly in their precious metals trade statistics for 2019.

Last week, an article titled “The Multibillion Mystery of the Great Gold Sale” was published by The Times. (If you don’t have access to The Times you can read it here.) The article was written by Ed Conway, who states that an extraordinary large load of gold bullion was exported from the UK in November and December 2019. A similar post by Conway (including several charts) can be found as a thread on Twitter.

China invokes HOLOCAUST HORRORS as 40 mobile incineration ovens are deployed in Wuhan, labeled for disposal of “animal corpses”

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

Remember 13 days ago when we warned that “cremation vans” were running 24/7 in Wuhan, China while the crematoriums were backlogged with piles of dead bodies stacked in the cremation queues?

Now China has brought in 40 mobile incineration ovens to burn and destroy what the Chinese government calls “medical waste.” As you can see in the photos below, the incineration ovens are labeled for the disposal of “animal corpses.”

To Democrats Who Back Bloomberg: ‘Did you learn nothing from Hillary?’


from 21st Century Wire:

One of the most significant moments which radically altered the course of the 2016 US presidential election was when candidate Hillary Clinton self immolated with what was meant to be a throwaway quip:

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.”

And just like that, a quarter of the American population were banished by the Democratic nominee, to languish in politically correct purgatory.

Who is WHO’s Tedros Adhanom?


by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

On the surface it appeared that the Director-General of the UN World Health Organization has acted swiftly and seriously about the spreading coronavirus health emergency spreading across China. He has gone to meet with Chinese leaders to discuss the situation and on January 30, after his talks in Beijing and meetings with the WHO advisory body, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus declared the coronavirus a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC).” What the WHO has really done and especially the remarks of the Director-General, give cause for concern that he is motivated by something other than world health.

Silver Expected to Shine in 2020

by Peter Schiff, Schiff Gold:

Silver will shine in 2020 with higher prices supported by expanded physical investment and industrial demand.

This is the projection of the Silver Institute in its 2020 Market Forecast.

The Silver Institute believes that macroeconomic and geopolitical conditions will remain broadly supportive for precious metals, encouraging investors to stay net buyers of silver overall, a development that should lift silver prices higher this year. Additionally, we see continued growth in physical silver investment, and forecast silver’s use as an industrial metal will rise in 2020.”

DEVELOPING: Durham Expands Probe Into Special Counsel’s Activities – Interviews Several FBI Investigators Who Worked on Mueller’s Team

by Cristina Laila, The Gateway Pundit:

US Attorney from Connecticut John Durham has interviewed several FBI investigators who worked on Mueller’s team, according to investigative reporter Paul Sperry.

This further suggests “Durham’s probe may be expanding into the activities of the Special Counsel’s office,” Sperry added.

He’s Heeere!

American Citizens Killed and Tortured by Israel?

by Philip Giraldi, Global Research:

One of the principal functions of a United States Embassy overseas is to provide citizen services, which includes coming to the assistance of Americans who are treated badly by the local government. It is a responsibility that most embassies take seriously, with the exception of the facility currently located in Jerusalem. One has to understand that that is so because the United States Embassy in Israel is like no other. In other countries, the American Embassy exists to support American travelers, businesses and a broad range of national interests. In Jerusalem the Embassy exists to support Israeli interests and to serve as an apologist every time the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu goes on a killing spree or does something else that is similarly outrageous, to include bombing neighboring Syria every other day.

Putin on Globalization, Bonehead Elites and the Ever-Shrinking Middle Class


from Russia Insider:

Globalization is one of the great issues of our time. The erasure of national borders, the weakening of sovereign governments and the impoverishment of workers across the developed world has triggered a massive populist backlash that threatens to roll back the economic-integration scheme that places Capital at the head of a new global order. Widespread social unrest, deepening political polarization, and the relentless rise of right-wing parties have put a damper on a process aimed at transforming the world into an unregulated free trade zone overseen by Central Bankers and corporate mandarins. The future of that project is now very much in doubt.
