The US Endgame? Creating A Climate That "Could Easily Be Transformed Into War"

Akin to ancient Rome, the United States has over-extended herself. She has created a climate that could easily be transformed into a war on a slight pretext. Wars, as it is well known are also a means a nation can extricate itself from debt and financial responsibility. The dying Petrodollar system has been on life support for some time, and it appears other nations such as the BRIC’s are taking the initiative to return to a true monetary standard. This is the same gold and silver standard that the U.S. should never have left in the first place.

"Erdogan Is The Father Of ISIS" - New Documentary Outlines Turkey's Support Of The Islamic State

Is Turkey the support behind ISIS? A new documentary lays out evidence that would lead to that conclusion... one we first exposed here, here, and here. The documentary takes place just days after the YPG took back the town of Shaddadi (a former ISIS stronghold), and what is revealed will most certainly go under reported, but is important nonetheless.

The Woodstock Of Crony Capitalism

In Davos, they chug bottles of Chateau Lafite Rothschild and plot how to pillage small nations. At Berkshire, we will eat Dilly bars and plot how to pillage the middle class. Capitalism is beautiful and crony capitalism is the end product of politicians who prostitute the laws. I don’t have the power to change the current rules, but I can certainly learn to thrive within them.

What Happens If Everybody Pulls Their Money Out Of The Bank Today?

For every dollar that you have in the bank there is actually 0.00061 dollars available...in other words, there's 6 cents for every $100 dollars of deposits that you have at the bank. As Mike Maloney explains in this brief clip, we live in an economic system that is made complicated by design. Basically, it’s set up so most people don’t even try to understand it. Got Gold?

In Latest US-China Escalation, Beijing Denies US Aircraft Carrier Access To Hong Kong Port

What until now was mostly effete jawboning over US complaints surrounding China's territorial expansion ambitions in the South China Sea, including the occasional sailing of a US ship deep inside the disputed territorial waters (with zero impact especially now that China may soon start building maritime nuclear power plants in the area), changed dramatically earlier today when China officially denied a U.S. carrier strike group's request for a port visit to Hong Kong next week.

Why The Hard-Sell For The "Self-Driving" Car?

The object of this exercise appears to be perpetual debt-servitude as well as placing almost everyone fully and finally under the complete control of the powers that be, who are no longer just the powers in government. The distinction between state power and corporate power is so blurry now as to be almost impossible to parse. The two are effectively the same thing, working hand in hand for their mutual benefit
