Deliberately Looking Away – Ted Butler

by Ted Butler, Silver Seek:

There are two great evolutions underway in the world of commodities that, while in full view, are misunderstood or overlooked by most observers. So important are these two developments that they threaten serious market upheaval when they are addressed, as must inevitably occur.  Most remarkably, indisputable data published by the primary federal commodities regulator, the CFTC, prove beyond a doubt both occurrences are underway, even as the agency, along with the US Department of Justice, refuse to confront what is a clear violation of US commodity and antitrust law.

Watch Out America: China and Russia Are Coming After the Dollar

by Peter Schiff, Schiff Gold:

We’ve reported extensively on the central bank gold-buying spree that has been going on for nearly two years. Russia and China have led the way, along with several other countries including Turkey, Kazakstan, India and Poland.

Central banks are buying gold to diversify reserves and minimize exposure to the dollar. This has been the mainstream narrative and it’s true. But China and Russia have a bigger geopolitical objective. They want to undermine dollar hegemony and reduce the United States’ ability to weaponize the dollar as a foreign policy tool.

Trump Is Right: The Federal Reserve Is Crazy And Here Are 101 Reasons Why It Should Be Shut Down

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Donald Trump just made one of the most brilliant moves of his entire presidency.  By accusing the Federal Reserve of “going loco”, he is placing the blame for the coming stock market crash and horrifying economic downturn squarely where it belongs, and he is firing up millions of true conservatives among his base at the same time.  For many, many years, a lot of us have been trying to educate the American people about the deeply insidious Federal Reserve system.  As Ron Paul once so astutely observed, it is actually about as “federal” as Federal Express is.  The Federal Reserve is an unelected cabal of central bankers that is running our economy into the ground, and the only way we are going to fix our long-term economic and financial problems is if we abolish it.  So for those of us that understand these things, it is extremely exciting to hear President Trump use language such as this

Recusal Of Mystery Judge Stalls DNC Fraud Lawsuit Appeal

by Elizabeth Vos, Elizabeth Vos:

UPDATE: 9/18/18 In another mind boggling twist, it was revealed after the publication of the following article that the recused Judge is in fact the Hon. Robin S. Rosenbaum, who has served on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals since 2014, and is apparently a member of the “Quill and Dagger” collegiate secret society.

The DNC Fraud Lawsuit has been no stranger to unusual and atypical occurrences. The latest unprecedented development continues this trend, potentially raising troubling questions as to the integrity of the Federal appellate process.

Disobedient Media has consistently covered the DNC Fraud lawsuit and its ongoing appeal as it has been doggedby outlandish events including voice-modulated phone calls, threats, and inexplicable deaths. Many such events have gone unnoticed and unreported by the legacy media.

Can Russia Survive Her “Partnerships”? Has Putin Made A Strategic Miscalculation?

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

In an act of intentional deception, Israel used a Russian airplane to cloak an Israeli attack on a Syrian ground position, with the consequence that Syrian air defense missiles downed the Russian airplane with the lost of 15 Russian military lives.

In the words of the Russian Ministry of Defense: “The Israeli pilots used the Russian plane as cover and set it up to be targeted by the Syrian air defense forces. As a consequence, the Il-20, which has radar cross-section much larger than the [Israeli] F-16, was shot down by an S-200 system missile.” Russian Defense Minister Shoigu said: “The blame for the downing of the Russian plane and the deaths of its crew members lies squarely on the Israeli side. The actions of the Israeli military were not in keeping with the spirit of the Russian-Israeli partnership, so we reserve the right to respond.”https://russia-insider.com/en/russian-military-says-holds-israel-responsible-deaths-15-servicemen-reserves-right-respond/ri24780 See also: http://tass.com/defense/1022123

Media Too Busy Defending John McCain to Report the News That Actually Affects You

by Carey Wedler, The Anti Media:

Right on schedule, the corporate media is in a tizzy over President Donald Trump’s failure to acknowledge the death of Senator John McCain, who passed away over the weekend after a battle with brain cancer.

As CBS “reported”: “While the White House originally lowered the flag late Saturday evening, White House reporters, including CBS News’ Mark Knoller, noticed that the flag was back at full staff Monday morning.

As Trump Stays Silent on John McCain’s Death, the Senator Gets a Last Word,” reads a New York Times headline.

Italy’s Flight From Eurozone Would Be Liberation, Not Punishment – Eurexit Chief

from Sputnik News:

The European Commission launched an attack on Italy’s government this week, expressing its “serious concern” over Rome’s spending plans and claiming they violate EU fiscal rules. Speaking to Sputnik, lawyer and Eurexit Association president Francesca Donato explained why the latent conflict between Rome and Brussels is likely to escalate.

Italian economy minister Giovanni Tria confirmed Thursday that Rome would start bringing its budget deficit down from 2.4 percent after 2020, backing down on plans to run deficits for three years in a row in an effort to fulfill election promises of a ‘citizens income’ plan, tax cuts and pension reform.
