Citibank has joined other mainstream gold bulls calling for record gold prices.
Citi raised its gold price forecast this week. It now projects a three-month price of $1,825 per ounce and for the yellow metal to head into record territory in 2021. Citi analysts expect gold to eclipse the $2,000 mark early next year.
Citibank joins several other mainstream players that now project record gold prices in the coming months. Last week, we reported Goldman Sachs now forecasts record gold prices within the next 12 months and Bank of America released a note saying gold could break its US dollar record by the end of the year if it continues to breach key resistance levels.

This past Friday (June 26, 2020) US District Judge Dolly Gee ordered the release of migrant children who are currently being held in ICE family residential centers, due to fears of COVID-19 spreading.
While this may sound like a good thing on the surface, it is not. Judge Gee only ordered that the children be released, but not their parents or adult family members. She left the decision to release adult family members of the children up to ICE.

On April 29, 2020, a 16-year-old African American boy was involved in what institutional staff decided was a dangerous confrontation at a ‘for profit’ child prison run by a politically connected healthcare firm.
The child threw a piece of bread and was crushed to the ground, pleading for air, until his breathing stopped, and he went into cardiac arrest in a full George Floyd moment, one behind locked doors.
About the same time, four African Americans were found hanging in trees, all ruled suicides by police.
There is a tie in here, which we will be developing but first we will look at this Michigan case and gain perspective on a trend in not just racist abuse but in the wider area of child abuse, child imprisonment and human rights violations that are now a part of American society at every level.

“Then who do we shoot?” Like Muley Graves the sharecropper, John Steinbeck’s evocative Okie everyman in John Ford’s 1940 film, many Americans are bewildered by a tidal wave of forces that seem beyond their control. The answer is not easy. But increasingly it seems likely to involve geographical partition.
Facing eviction from his dust-bowl farm, Muley confronts a man on a bulldozer who has come to demolish the shack Muley and his family live in. The sharecropper is determined not to give in and threatens the bulldozer operator with a shotgun—only to discover he is a local man, one of Muley’s own people. The bulldozer driver explains it’s not his fault, it’s just a job that he was hired to do. If Muley shoots him, then someone else will come to do the job and Muley will land in jail.
UKC News: Gov’t Narratives on Masks, Contact Tracing, Social Distancing, Vaccines – Are Falling Apart
from 21st Century Wire:
All of the government’s widely disseminated claims about COVID-19, from the infection fatality rate, to social distancing, masks and vaccines – are now falling apart. With the economy in free-fall and with millions more joining the unemployment ranks every week, will there be a reckoning? Is the government still accountable to the people, or has it already transitioned into a Chinese-style single party state? Also, Trump lashes out at his former National Security boffin John Bolton for publishing White House secrets in his new book. All this and more.

It is well-known that some people prioritize their own self-interest over others’ lives. People commit crimes of varying severity every day. When people become more desperate, crimes tend to become more frequent and severe. This is especially true in home invasions, when the invaders are often willing to hurt the occupants to get what they are looking for. This article will describe how to defend your home by utilizing a proactive approach, rather than trying to catch up to the attacker’s intent and capabilities.

This week, House Republicans on the Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis sent five letters to Democratic governors, demanding answers as to why these state leaders ordered nursing homes to admit patients who had tested positive for coronavirus. The House Republicans noted that the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued guidance suggesting that nursing homes should only admit patients if the facility could follow quarantine guidelines.

A new outbreak of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) in Beijing has forced the city to shut down schools and escalate measures to slow the rate of infections in the city.
The shutdown of schools came as the Chinese capital raised its emergency response level to two on Tuesday. This meant that people looking to leave the city would have to be tested for the virus first.
Major US cities rocked with cold-blooded murders amid violent left-wing riots that have injured hundreds of cops

Atlanta Mayor Acknoweldges Police Morale Is ‘Down Ten-Fold,’ Begs Officers To Return To Work After Walkout
by Emily Zanotti, Daily Wire:
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms acknowledged that police morale is “down ten-fold” in the city Wednesday night after dozens of officers reportedly called in sick or refused to leave their precincts following a decision by the Fulton County district attorney to charge officer Garrett Rolfe with felony murder in the shooting death of Rayshard Brooks.
She also begged police to honor their commitment to their community and return to patrol.

Color Revolution is the term used to describe a series of remarkably effective CIA-led regime change operations using techniques developed by the RAND Corporation, “democracy” NGOs and other groups since the 1980’s. They were used in crude form to bring down the Polish communist regime in the late 1980s. From there the techniques were refined and used, along with heavy bribes, to topple the Gorbachev regime in the Soviet Union. For anyone who has studied those models closely, it is clear that the protests against police violence led by amorphous organizations with names like Black Lives Matter or Antifa are more than purely spontaneous moral outrage. Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are being used as a battering ram to not only topple a US President, but in the process, the very structures of the US Constitutional order.
