China Surpasses India As Biggest Buyer Of Gold


Two weeks ago we learned what many had already known just by extrapolating simple trends: in 2013 Chinese net imports of gold from Hong Kong alone rose to over 1000 tons of gold, or 1158 to be precise - 100 tons more than China's official gold holdings of 1054 tons which have not "budged" in the past four years - following another significant net monthly import of 94.8 tons of the precious metal in December (and 126.6 gross). This means total gold imports in 2013 was more than double the 557 tons imported in 2012, and as a result China has now officially surpassed India as the world's biggest buyer of gold (although the title may swing back to India once gold price controls are relaxed, or if the government were to count all the gold smuggled into the country via illegal channels).

As the chart below shows, no matter what the price of paper gold does, the Chinese bid remains unwavering.



Reuters summarizes China's insatiable apetite for the yellow metal:



China's gold consumption jumped 41 percent in 2013 to exceed 1,000 tonnes for the first time, an industry body said on Monday, as a sharp slide in prices attracted buyers for jewellery and bullion.

The demand surge has helped China become the No. 1 gold consumer and should support prices, which took a hit last year from expectations of a tapering of commodities-friendly economic stimulus by the U.S. Federal Reserve and a drop in demand in the other major buyer India.

Gold consumption in China grew to 1,176.40 tonnes last year, with jewellery demand climbing 43 percent to 716.50 tonnes and bullion demand soaring 57 percent to 375.73 tonnes, the China Gold Association said on its website.

Chinese demand hit a record as gold prices fell for the first time in 13 years amid an improving global economy and a rally in equities. Prices tumbled 28 percent in 2013.

"The sharply lower prices attracted a lot of Chinese consumers looking for bargains," said Chen Min, an analyst at Jinrui Futures in Shenzhen.

"Gold will continue to be an attractive investment in China in the near term as prices look steady near $1,200 an ounce," Chen said.

As a reminder, official gold holdings are not included in these numbers:

China's gold consumption figures do not include demand from the central bank, whose gold reserves stand at 33.89 million ounces (1,054 tonnes), unchanged since April 2009, according to the latest figures on the central bank's website.

Regarding said PBOC gold holdings, Reuters confirms what our readers have known since September 2011:
China last announced a rise in its gold reserves in April 2009 and has not revised the figure since, though there had been recent market speculation that the bank had been accumulating gold reserves and would announce a new figure.

Of course, we doubt anyone would be surprised by the unveiling of any updated PBOC holdings especially after one considers just how ravenous China's gross imports since our September 2011 article have been, summarized best by the following chart.



As we have said before: keep an eye on the "gold holdings" of the GLD and other US paper gold ETFs, whose drop in holdings for now has offset Chinese accumulation on the margin. Once GLD gold holdings solidly resume their climb higher, that will be the key upward gold price inflection point.

Iranian admiral: The US can expect heavy losses at sea

The commander of Iran's navy threatens to sink American naval vessels, cites progressive naval capabilities after sending fleet toward US shores.

The commander of Iran's navy ratcheted up the Islamic Republic's recent rhetoric against the United States, threatening the Americans with major losses at sea should they chose to attack Iranian nuclear facilities.

“The Americans can fully expect that their warships [and] aircraft carrier will be sunk with all 5,000 crew aboard, in combat against Iran, and they could find its hulk in the depths of the sea,” Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi was quoted as saying by semi-official Iranian Fars News on Sunday.

Fadavi said that since the day that the US warships entered the Persian Gulf, the IRGC Navy has evolved all its capabilities, training, structures, organizations and weapons to counter Washington’s threats, and added that the IRGC vessels in the region are monitoring every move made by the Americans.

In a display of naval power and confidence, an Iranian Navy fleet of warships is reportedly making its way across the Atlantic Ocean, reported Fars on Sunday. At the time, they reported that the ships would sail for at least three months.

“Iran’s military fleet is approaching the United States’ maritime borders, and this move has a message,” Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad of Iran’s Northern Navy Fleet was quoted as saying.

Then, Iran’s Navy Commander R.-Adm. Habibollah Sayyari said the move would counter US presence in its waters in the Persian Gulf.

Hours earlier, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Saturday the United States would overthrow the Iranian government if it could, adding Washington had a “controlling and meddlesome” attitude towards the Islamic Republic, Iranian media reported.Fadavi said though Americans might be able to hide themselves in various bases in certain Muslim countries in the region if they are faced with an Iranian military response, but “they cannot hide themselves at sea since the entire Middle-East, western Europe, the Persian Gulf, the Sea of Oman and the Strait of Hormuz are monitored by us and there is no place for [them] to hide”.

Iran's naval power was acknowledged in a Washington Institute for the Near East Policy report in 2008 on "reviewing the historical evolution of Iran’s approach to asymmetric warfare and assessing its naval forces."

The report stated, "This study concludes that despite Iran’s overall defensive posture in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, it could take preemptive action in response to a perceived threat of imminent attack. And in the event of a US attack, the scale of Iran’s response would likely be proportional to the scale of the damage inflicted on Iranian assets."

False Economic Recovery

Russian Defense Minister Visits Pacific Nuclear Sub Base



"Alexander Nevsky"

MOSCOW, February 10 (RIA Novosti) – Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu inspected a naval base Monday in the country’s Far East in preparation for the arrival of new nuclear submarines, according to the ministry.

The inspection of the facility on the Kamchatka Peninsula comes amid an overhaul of the country's navy, including the construction of the first post-Soviet submarines, the Yasen-class attack and the Borey-class strategic nuclear missile submarines.

The first boats of the two new classes were commissioned last year.

Mikhail Tashlyk, the official in charge of construction of docking and maintenance facilities for the new submarine types at the Rybachy submarine base, told Shoigu they would be completed by the end of the year.

The defense minister underscored that the work must remain on schedule, as two new Borey-class strategic missile submarines – the Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh – are expected to join the Pacific Fleet by the end of next year.

The Borey-class submarines, the length of almost two football fields, can carry up to 16 of the country's new Bulava nuclear missiles, which have suffered a string of failures in launch tests as recently as September. The navy ultimately expects eight of the boats to enter service by 2020.

The buildup of Russia's Pacific Fleet comes as the Obama administration in the US pursues a pivot of military assets toward Asia in light of the region’s growing importance.

According to a ministry spokesperson, Shoigu’s visit was to include tours of the submarine facilities as well as residential areas in the nearby closed military town of Vilyuchinsk.

Ryabachy, located nine miles (15 kilometers) across Avacha Bay from the region’s capital Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, has been the Pacific Fleet's primary nuclear submarine base since the Cold War.

America’s Descent Into Feudalism In 10 Easy Steps


feudalism american style

Who Owns You?

Who owns your life? Who retains the fundamental authority over your resources, speech and even thought processes? Prior to reading American Feudalism in Ten Easy Steps, I strongly suggest viewing the following four minute video which raises the question of who owns you?

Whatever Happened to the Consent of the Governed?

The founding fathers notion that our elected leaders only expressed power so long as they had the consent of the governed, has seen its day and the notion is as dead as a doornail.
Today, Americans are subjects, not citizens. We are enslaved, not free. The authority of the elite, as expressed through the collective power of the government , constitutes the sovereign authority in this country. The People, are no longer sovereign.
When one steps back and looks at the brilliant strategy being used to enslave us as concocted by the global elite, one can only marvel at their cleverness. The subjects of this country are being turned into feudal slaves in ten easy steps.

America’s Descent Into Feudalism

First, Wall Street Banksters play the reckless derivative debt game and collapses the world’s economy with a domestic American debt of 1.5 Quadrillion debt. The entire value of the planet is estimated at between $66 trillion to $75 trillion dollars. Since your government has so generously decided, on your behalf, that it is your obligation to support the banksters, you will pay endless tribute to the very group responsible for this debt. Congratulations, you are a debt slave!
Second, home values dramatically dropped and foreclosures reached record levels. The MERS mortgage fraud continues unabated where there exists up to 30-40 separate fraudulent title notes on your home, any of which can be used to seize your property at a moment’s notice, even if you are current on your mortgage payments. In reality, you own nothing.
Third, the banks begin seizing underwater properties with money printed out of thin air by the Federal Reserve. As has been reported in this column, multiple times, the Federal Reserve is printing $40 billion dollars per month to buy up as much American real estate as possible. The elite are preparing to rent you back your property for the privilege to live on their feudal manor.
Fourth, the economy will eventually collapse from printing 40 billion dollars of mortgage backed securities every single month. Every mortgage goes into receivership after all home loans are called in and the elite will own every single property in the country.
Fifth, global currency and global government are ushered in following the collapse of the dollar which lead to a domino effect in which all other fiat currencies will collapse like a house of cards. If you don’t think that an economic collapse is in our future, you have obviously never heard of these three numbers:
National Debt of $17 trillion dollars
Unfunded liabilities of $240 trillion dollars
Derivatives debt of $1.5 quadrillion dollars
Those of you, most of you, who are not resource independent, will be at the mercy of the elite when the currency collapse arrives. When this moment occurs, you will further be at the mercy of the elite’s minions, the government. When they control your food, water and safety, they can do anything they want to you. If the elite wants population reduction, by any means possible, they will have the ability to carry it out. If they desire slave labor, as called for in Executive Order 13603, they can create a modern day version of Roman slavery.
Sixth, Obama will soon move to enforce the previously adopted UN gun ban treaty, which will leave the emerging American serfs totally defenseless as the DHS uses the newly purchased 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition on the dissenters. This may be the key step in our demise, as most Americans will willingly give up their guns when told to do so. History shows that all gun confiscations opens the door to eventual genocide.
Seventh, with Americans forced out of their homes, with the help of the MERS mortgage fraud,  displaced Americans can be forced into the new stack and pack cities complete with their 200-500 square foot Agenda 21 style micro-apartments. This is when the nightmare of Agenda 21 will come into play in a very brutal form. The Hunger Gamesscenario will become reality while the elite live and play in their version of Capitol City which will most likely be  located in Denver.
Eighth, Americans will be subject to forced vaccines and real depopulation will begin in earnest. The mercury laden cocktails will continue to lower IQ’s, reduce fertility and lead to premature decline and death. I find it stunning that our fellow countrymen have so willingly acquiesced to this illegitimate authority which forces vaccines upon us with only a minimal amount of protest.
Nine, will consist of one child limits that will be placed on families. Our future has been foretold in a 1998 young adult novel by Margaret Peterson Haddix concerning a fictional future in which overly drastic measures have been taken to quell overpopulation. In reality, there is no overpopulation. However, there are too many of us to be effectively controlled and we will soon see some very draconian population control methods put into paace. Are you surprised? Bill Gates is calling for the sterilization of the third world.
Tenth, the 10% who survive this vicious depopulation transition will live in the darkest days of humanity in a hellish nightmare that even George Orwell could not have foreseen. Under the banner of Fabian Socialism, it is not hard to predict that mandatory life span restrictions, for the peasant class, which will someday be imposed on the subjects who reside on the new feudal manor. The existence of GMO’s, fluoridated water and chemtrailed skies have pushed us a long way towards accomplishing this goal. Despite paying the most for healthcare in the world, Americans only have the 51st longest life span. Cubans live one year longer than we do. You decide if it’s by design. And while you are deciding, consider the role that the overarching overlay of governmental tyranny will consist of as the government begins to fully exercise their brutal authority under the auspices of the NDAA and Executive Order 13603.

Conclusion

There is one viable way out of becoming a subject of the feudal manner. We could collectively engage in civil disobedience. We could grind down the elites control over us by refusing to play in their game. If this is going to happen, it needs to happen now for when the feudal manor is fully constructed, there may be no escape from its clutches.

Look behind the Iran warships headed to U.S. borders




By Douglas J. Hagmann

9 February 2014: It’s easy to downplay or even dismiss the threat by Iranian warships said to be on their way to sail close to U.S. maritime borders if one merely looks at this move as taking place in a geopolitical vacuum. The problem is that we are not residing in such a vacuum, and the majority of Americans are not understanding the significance of events that have been taking place since the planning phases of the “Arab Spring.” The American public is not getting the truth from the White House or the Western media that appears to be covering for, if not facilitating the Obama agenda.

How is this relevant to Iranian warships reportedly planning to prod the U.S. maritime borders? To understand why this is happening, we’ve got to understand the bigger picture.

The Obama agenda, as it is for now and as it has been since day one is the Saudi agenda. That agenda calls for the toppling of various governments and the installation of an Islamic Caliphate under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood.

As an aside, I might ask whether the selection of Barack Hussein Obama is starting to make more sense now, and whether the mystery funding by foreign (Saudi) interests to his campaign also is beginning to make sense. Might this not place the Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the U.S. government into appropriate context as well? But I digress.

To understand why Iran seems to be suddenly stirring things up, you’ve got to understand the “back-story.” Not the fairy tales manufactured by the Obama regime or it’s media sycophants, but the real, difficult to accept accounting of our involvement in the Middle East. If you’ve read my numerous reports about Benghazi, you’ll already understand that our continued push to rid Syria of Assad would be answered through asymmetrical means.

Through this movement of Iranian war ships, we are witnessing the movement of chess pieces in this game of global, 3-D chess. We must keep in mind that this game has different boards, layers and pieces. The Iranian ships are but one piece on one board. There are many others, each inter-related.

Simply put, Iran is a proxy nation of Russia, much like North Korea is a proxy nation of China. Both Russia and China have military and economic interests in Syria, which is the back door to Iran. Under Obama, the puppet attached to Saudi strings, this agenda played a central role in unceremoniously dispatching Gaddafi to his final reward under the pretext of freeing an oppressed Libyan people. You might recall the glee expressed by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton when given the news that Gaddafi was finally out of the way.

At the same time, the U.S. NATO, the U.S., and several other allies, including Saudi Arabia, were already engaged in a proxy war with Russia and Iran in Syria. Key to toppling Assad was, and still is, supplying arms and trained fighters to assist the “anti-Assad rebels.” This was the purpose of the CIA compound in Benghazi. As I pointed out along with Michael Reagan in his article Building on a kernel of truth, northern Africa, and specifically Libya served as a virtual Ho Chi Minh trail of Muslim Brotherhood supply lines arming the rebels.

Before the operation could wind down in Benghazi, the logistics hub for the planning and staging these arming operations, the CIA compound was the site of a coordinated, pre-planned attack by groups affiliated with Iran and by proxy, Russia. Syria held and continues to hold military and economic importance to Russia, and Putin made it clear that meddling in Syria could start World War III. That’s what we were doing then, and that’s what we are still doing now.

After exposing to the world (except for the media lapdogs who continued to provide cover for Obama and his handlers) what the U.S., the British, French, the Saudis and others were up to in Libya, plans had to be altered. The Kerry State Department, under orders from Obama, gave the green light to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) to open a new front to arm the anti-Assad rebels in Syria through the western portion of Iraq—the al Anbar Province. You might recall that Kerry announced that the U.S. would not provide any military assistance in Iraq to stop ISIS and their affiliates. As such, the objective to topple Assad continues, just not in the manner initially desired.

As I reported in my previous columns and on my radio show, Putin is not about to allow our covert assistance to oust Assad and destabilize Syria to go unanswered. While he might feel temporarily restrained by the potential influence of Saudi controlled terrorism at games at Sochi, we can expect him to come out swinging after the Olympic games at Sochi conclude.

While the Iranian warships are certainly no match for our navy, it is important to understand that we are seeing a geopolitical game of 3-D chess play our before us. Like chess, moves are calculated far in advance and often, moves are made for purposes other than direct confrontation. Sometimes, moves are made to spread out the other player’s pieces. Make no mistake, the Iranian ships are pieces on this board and under Putin’s control.

In any cross-strait war China will use EMP weapons against US



Various ways of defeating US carriers in the Asia-Pacific region have been studied by Chinese military planners for years. (Internet photo)

China is likely to mobilize electromagnetic pulse weapons against the United States in any potential war over the Taiwan strait, according to a report prepared by F. Michael Maloof, a retired US defense department official for the WorldNetDaily, a conservative news website based in Washington.

Given the possibility that the United States Navy will deploy its aircraft carrier to the Western Pacific in the event of China entering into a territorial conflict with Japan, Vietnam and the Philippines over the East and South China Sea or launching any potential military action against Taiwan, Maloof indicated that the People's Liberation Army is looking to use the electromagnetic pulse weapons as part of a "one-two punch" to knock out the defensive electronics aboard the US vessels.




The electromagnetic pulses could be released through the explosion of a nuclear weapon at altitude over the region China wants to target. The damage to the US vessels or allied command center in the region would include a complete loss of electronics, computers, automated systems, communications, food, utility and even transportation services. Maloof hit out at the Pentagon for ignoring the development of Chinese electromagnetic pulse weapons.

Quoting Lou Xiaoqing, the report indicated that electromagnetic pulses are likely to be used by the PLA as the primary means of incapacitating Taiwan and disabling American defenders nearby during any potential war to "liberate" Taiwan from the ruling Kuomintang regime. "Given that such a strategy was made public in an article entitled Electromagnetic Pulse Bombs are Chinese Ace, it is seen as reflecting the official Chinese government position", said the report.

To avoid damaging civilian and military equipment on the Chinese mainland, a nuclear bomb would likely to be detonated at an altitude of 18 miles from the ground. A report from the National Ground Intelligence Center also pointed out that the use of electromagnetic pulses against Taiwan at an altitude of 30-40 km would confine the effects of the electromagnetic pulses to Taiwan and its immediate vicinity and minimize damage to electronics on the mainland.

UK floods.. Thames threatens thousands of homes





Fourteen severe flood warnings are in place in Berkshire and Surrey, while two remain in Somerset.

Environment Agency chairman Lord Smith, has hit back at critics, saying his staff knew "100 times" more about flooding than any politician.

A minister will answer an urgent question put by Labour in the Commons on the flooding crisis later.

Speaking earlier, Lord Smith said: "I have kept my counsel up to now, but when I hear someone criticising the expertise and the professionalism of my staff in the Environment Agency, who know 100 times more about flood risk management than any politician ever does, I'm afraid I'm not going to sit idly by.

"The Environment Agency is bound by the rules that are laid down by government."

His comments came after Communities Secretary Eric Pickles said ministers had been given bad advice over river dredging.

China, Russia, and Iran Testing US Military Defense System

By Susan Duclos

Former Ambassador John Bolton has some harsh criticism for the Obama administration in the video below over it’s handling of Iran which has become emboldened to the point of sending Iranian warships to U.S. maritime borders making it clear they have the capability of attacking the US.

Bolton points to the bad decisions from the UN with American approval which has weakened the US positioning and strengthened Iran’s as we now see China, Russia and now Iran all testing the US military in ways that none of them have ever dared to before Obama took office.

Listen to the whole interview, Bolton makes very good points.

The second video below shows the level of concern shown by Bolton is not unreasonable as Iranian state controlled television has shown simulated attacks by Iran against the US and Israel.

Defining The Shifting Enemy Of The Common Man




Who are these people? Some will immediately chime in, “They aren't people at all!” Perhaps so...perhaps not. They go by many names; The Powers That Be, The Illuminati, The Freemasons, The Brotherhood of the Snake, The Universal Brotherhood, The Sinisteri are but a few. The broad term, Parasitical Elite, is more description than a branded label.

There is a designed ambiguity surrounding the Parasitical Elite. Through millennia, however, certain constants manifest themselves; they are as unavoidable as the age found in a person's eyes regardless of the best efforts of cosmetic surgery. Parasitical Elites, regardless who you think they are, are evil. 'Evil' is itself a subjective term, but in the broad context of the thought processes of non-psychopathic people, we can all agree on a universal definition of evil as the desire to do harm to others.

From before the time of Christ in ancient Sumeria, right up to present day, the Parasitical Elite have alternately appeared, disappeared and reappeared under different guises; in the form of secret societies, political ideologies and occult institutions. This is not accidental. Obfuscation is a pillar upon which their agenda for global domination rests.

The employment of the root word 'parasite' is accurate. Regardless of what they choose to be known as within any given epoch, they are parasites - they latch on to a host and drain it of whatever is required for the parasite to thrive.

How far the blinders have come off will usually help define what we consider to be the Parasitical Elite. For those newly awoken, the Parasitical Elite might be corporations, or even the Democratic or Republican party. At the sleep leaves one's eyes, the central bankers. At yet another, it might be the '13 Families', or the reptilian bloodlines, or the Nephilim. Or European royalty and nobility. At yet another, the Ashkenazim. For some, it's simply “The Jews”. Catholics. Organized religion. All of these are correct, in one fashion or another. And all of these are not correct - this is the nature of created ambiguity. Confusion is the Parasitical Elite's friend. If everyone is the bogeyman, then no one is the bogeyman. These parasites operate on many levels; attaching to races, institutions and ideologies until such time as they have consumed their micro host and move on to more fertile ground from which to ever realize their goal of global domination. From domination comes fear and negativity. We, humanity, are the primary host from which they seek to feed upon. They do so by creating and controlling instruments (nothing more, really) such as belief systems and political systems such as communism and socialism...'isms' that fight each other and create fear and death. Parasites depleting the host...us.

This article's title question still begs to be answered. Some might ask who they are. Others, with an eye to a larger canvass, might ask what they are. Are they aliens, as William Bramley, author ofGods of Eden believes? He makes a very convincing case to that effect. This worthy read will open anyone's eyes to a great unveiling of truths. Even if one cannot or will not subscribe to the alien theory convincingly posited, there is a great deal of historically accurate data pertaining to secret societies such as the Bavarian Illuminati, William of Orange, or the origins of the House of Windsor.

Many believe the Parasitical Elite are divine beings of evil origin. How they differ from aliens is a theological distinction that escapes me, but many will defend that argument. It is believed they have come to us or been cast from their place of origin, depending on what holy book or legend one ascribes to. Wherever they come from, they are here to feed upon negativity and fear. This rings especially loud when speaking of Satan and his demon horde. There is a library of Alexandria-esque proportions detailing the hierarchy for these entities, sub-categories of demons and angels, such as Nephilim, Seraphim's, demi-gods and demi-urges and the like. Beneath this blanket nestles a host of various mythologies and theological structures such as the Greek Gods, the Norse gods, and a great many non-western and tribal mythologies. Without intending to ruffle any feathers, a widely held belief claims modern, organized western religions are simply present day humanity's current theological lover. Will Christ, or Allah, or Shiva be spoken of in current context two thousand years from now? Perhaps, as they have survived that long already. But in five thousand years? Six thousand? Before answering a thunderously indignant “OF COURSE!”, ask yourself if you can name the primary Gods of Sumer, or even Egypt. Most cannot, yet they were deities that shaped the course of our history. Many will argue that these deities of antiquity have been re branded into the deities we worship today, and I will not argue that assertion, finding it to be spot on.

In defining the Parasitical Elite, dipping in the shallow end of the pool, a person's opinion of the elite goes no farther than politicians and businessmen.

Deeper into water, reaching above the waist, the opinion of who the Parasitical Elite are changes. The veil is lifted a bit and central banksters, the multi-trillion Rothschild clan or their evil and malevolent offspring the Rockefeller's become identified. Subsidiary evils might include Wall Street denizens, the spider webs of global corporations, the Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderbergers, Skull & Bones or the Council of Rome; all evil, all psychopathic in leadership, membership and objectives; yet all are just clothes of different cuts, emanating from the same wardrobe. They are, indeed, but garments draped upon evil entities; the physical manifestations required to give corporeal substance to these malevolent entities, the better to aide in their ongoing campaign of destruction and control.

To swim in the deep end is to lose purchase with our physical reality, much as one must tread water to remain afloat. The universe is a big place. Infinite? Maybe. Do we inhabit just one universe in an ocean of universes? Perhaps. Science has proven that within the broad electromagnetic spectrum, our decidedly limited scope of perception perceives a tiny fraction of what is known to exist. If we can allow there is a vast spectrum of energy and existence we are not privy to, then we must allow the possibility of invisible (undetectable within the scope of our visible electromagnetic spectrum) entities existing all around us. Some will call these unseen entities spirits, demons, ghosts or Gods. Given (we now know) there is more unknown than known, we cannot rule out they do not exist. It is more probable and logical to allow that they do exist. Being of non-physical substance, they do not eat food as we define food. 

They do not get drunk on what we call alcohol. These entities feed upon fear and negative emotion. The tools they use to grow their food are found in the machinations of central banks, the CFR, warmongering corporations and a host of earthly minions, all dedicated to sowing fear and creating negative emotion within us. This is their food. This is the harvest they seek to reap, and our planet is the field. We, as individuals are the kernels. But they don't want wheat - they want the chaff. Where there is wheat, they seek to create chaff. It is the more fertile from which to germinate fear and insecurity, the consumption of which only makes them stronger.

Allowing there is a yin and yang to everything, a universal balance if you will, then the obvious conclusion to be drawn is that love is the antidote to hate; that positive emotion is the antidote to negative emotion.

There is a universal battle being waged for our little sparks of energy each of us possesses. One side, via the trappings of various earthly instruments, seeks to entrap us in fear, while the other side seeks to envelop us in love. Negative entities are decidedly more proactive, while the forces of light, no less concerned or desirous of our energy, remain in stasis; it is only byembracing love that one can become part of it. Positive light and love cannot be accepted in the form of deception, whereas fear can. Fortunately, all but the darkest heart instinctively will shy from evil. 

As social psychologists would have it, roughly 4 % of the human population will embrace evil. A brighter outlook on this is that 96% will not seek out evil, but must have it inserted. This is where the Parasitical Elite shine via their earthly instruments. Industries created to promote lust, greed, covetousness, materialism, pornography, inebriation and a boatload of other human weaknesses; these are the keys that open the door to fear and negativity. Those lesser and mis-diagnosed definitions of Parasitical Elites found in the shallow waters of the newly awakened are only tools created by the true Parasitical Elites...tools designed to separate us, or our spiritual energy, to be precise, from the light and positive energy that love emits.

So, at the end of the day, the only way to defeat these Parasitical Elites is to reject their wars, their moral corruptions and other means designed and projected on us daily in an effort to keep us from the light of love. Darkness flees before light. One doesn't go into a well lit room and ignite a candle of darkness to banish the light. Sadly, these Parasitical Elite have used religion for eons as the primary vehicle to create despair. War is evil incarnate. There is no good or justified war. There is simply war. Christians, Jews and Muslims, take heed! Your violent defense of your faith is little more than fuel to stoke the furnace of evil. Peace is love...to embrace peace is to embrace the light. As Gandhi said, “There is no path to peace, peace is the path.

Here's What It Looks Like When Your Country's Economy Collapses


Submitted by Adam Taggart of Peak Prosperity,

Argentina is a country re-entering crisis territory it knows too well. The country has defaulted on its sovereign debt three times in the past 32 years and looks poised to do so again soon.
Its currency, the peso, devalued by more than 20% in January alone. Inflation is currently running at 25%. Argentina's budget deficit is exploding, and, based on credit default swap rates, the market is placing an 85% chance of a sovereign default within the next five years.
Want to know what it's like living through a currency collapse? Argentina is providing us with a real-time window.
So, we've invited Fernando "FerFAL" Aguirre back onto the program to provide commentary on the events on the ground there. What is life like right now for the average Argentinian?
Aguirre began blogging during the hyperinflationary destruction of Argentina’s economy in 2001 and has since dedicated his professional career to educating the public about his experiences and observations of its lingering aftermath. He is the author of Surviving the Economic Collapse and sees many parallels between the path that led to Argentina's decline and the similar one most countries in the West, including the U.S., are currently on. Our 2011 interview with him "A Case Study in How An Economy Collapses" remains one of Peak Prosperity's most well-regarded.
Chris Martenson:  Okay. Bring us up to date. What is happening in Argentina right now with respect to its currency, the peso?

Fernando Aguirre:  Well, actually pretty recently, January 22, the peso lost 15% of its value. It has devalued quite a bit. It ended up losing 20% of its value that week, and it has been pretty crazy since then. Inflation has been rampant in some sectors, going up to 100% in food, grocery stores 20%, 30% in some cases. So it has been pretty complicated. Lots of stores don't want to be selling stuff until they get updated prices. Suppliers holding on, waiting to see how things go, which is something that we are familiar with because that happened back in 2001 when everything went down as we know it did.

Chris Martenson:  So 100%, 20% inflation; are those yearly numbers?

Fernando Aguirre:  Those are our numbers in a matter of days. In just one day, for example, cement in Balcarce, one of the towns in Southern Argentina, went up 100% overnight, doubling in price. Grocery stores in C√≥rdoba, even in Buenos Aires,people are talking about increase of prices of 20, 30% just these days. I actually have family in Argentina that are telling me that they go to a hardware store and they aren't even able to buy stuff from there because stores want to hold on and see how prices unfold in the following days.

Chris Martenson:  Right. So this is one of those great mysteries of inflation. It is obviously 'flying money', so everyone is trying to get rid of their money. You would think that would actually increase commerce. But if you are on the other end of that transaction, if you happen to be the business owner, you have every incentive to withhold items for as long as possible. So one of the great ironies, I guess, is that even though money is flying around like crazy, goods start to disappear from the shelves. Is that what you are seeing?

Fernando Aguirre:  Absolutely. Shelves halfway empty. The government is always trying to muscle its way through these kind of problems, just trying to force companies to stock back products and such, but they just keep holding on. For example, gas has gone up 12% these last few days. And there is really nothing they can do about it. If they don't increase prices, companies just are not willing to sell. It is a pretty tricky situation to be in.

Chris Martenson:  Are there any sort of price controls going on right now? Has anything been mandated?

Fernando Aguirre:  As you know, price controls don't really work. I mean, they tried this before in Argentina. Actually, last year one of the big news stories was that the government was freezing prices on food and certain appliances. It didn't work.Just a few days later those supposedly "frozen" prices were going up. As soon as they officially released them, they would just double in price.

Chris Martenson:  Let me ask you this, then: How many people in Argentina actually still have money in Argentine banks in dollars? One of the features in 2001 was that people had money in dollars, in the banks. There was a banking holiday; a couple of weeks later, banks open up; Surprise, you have the same number in your account, only it's pesos, not dollars. It was an effective theft, if I could use that term. Is anybody keeping money in the banks at this point, or how is that working?

Fernando Aguirre:  Well, first of all, I would like to clarify for people listening: Those banks that did that are the same banks that are found all over the world. They are not like strange South American, Argentinean banks – they are the same banks. If they are willing to steal from people in one place, don't be surprised if they are willing to do it in other places as well.

Iran spreads its war wings: Hizballah deepens role in Syria. Israel, Syria, Lebanon “regions of conflict”



In a fundamental policy makeover, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) high command has resolved to deepen the Lebanese Hizballah’s intervention in the Syrian civil war, with wide repercussions on the stability of Lebanon and the Syrian and Lebanese borders with Israel. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, commander of the IRGC’s terrorist and intelligence arm, the Al Qods Brigades, was appointed to execute this policy of expanded regional intervention.

DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report that it embodies the latest decision by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to strictly separate Tehran’s approach to international nuclear diplomacy opposite the US from its intervention in regional conflicts – Syria, Lebanon and the Palestinians – and direct confrontation with Israel.

Henceforth, Iran’s tactics in nuclear diplomacy for the relief of sanctions, and in the negotiations resuming in Geneva, Monday, Feb. 10 for ending the Syria war, will be sealed off in a separate policy compartment from the Islamic Republic’s pursuit of its regional goals in the “war arenas” of Syria, Lebanon and Israel.

Syrian President Bashar Assad and Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah were notified of this change last week. It first surfaced in a call to arms by Hizballah’s second in command Sheikh Naim Qassem, which is reported to have drawn 5,000 new Shiite volunteers in its first push.

The new intake will receive military training in crash courses for missions in Lebanon and a higher level of combat instruction for the Syrian battlefield.

Qassem announced in a pep speech in Beirut: "We will continue our work and remain in the field committed to our political stances. We will remain fighting where we are fighting. We are a resistance wherever we are: a resistance against Israel and its agents and a resistance fighting in Syria in defense of the resistance.”
His meaning was clear. The organization would continue fighting in Syria while buttressing its positions in Lebanon and persevering in its “resistance against Israel and its agents.”

That speech was also meant to raise the morale of Lebanon’s 3 million Shiites, who are down in the dumps as they facing bombing attacks by Al Qaeda-linked terrorists in reprisal for Hizballah’s military support for Bashar Assad, and see their young men (17-25) being called up for more fighting.

“Do not panic or be frightened of them or they will win,” Sheikh Qassam told them. “Our heads will remain high, as we combat the takfiris and those behind them. We will be victorious in the end...”

One outcome of Tehran’s new strategy – revealed here for the first time byDEBKAfile’s intelligence sources - is that the formula Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zerif worked on during his Beirut visit in mid-January, to resolve Lebanon’s chaotic political scene, has gone by the board. He managed to bring Lebanon’s quarreling factions to agree on a national unity government with nine portfolios allotted to the Hizballah bloc, nine the opposition and six chosen by President Michel Suleiman.

Hizballah was ordered by the hardline al Qods commander to revoke this deal.
Khamenei’s step to appease his hard-line factions has therefore dashed the hopes of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry that nuclear diplomacy with Iran and sanctions relief would have a positive and stabilizing effect on other parts of the region. President Hassan Rouhani’s tactics for getting sanctions eased will not be allowed to interfere with Iran’s ambitions to foment discord and expand its grip on the rest of the region.

Netanyahu: Those who strike Israel will be hit in return




Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu related to the IAF strikeSunday on an alleged terrorist in the Gaza Strip, saying at the start of Sunday's cabinet meeting that Israel's policy was clear and simple: those who strike Israel, or intend to do so, will be hit hard in return.

Netanyahu also related to reports that Iran ordered a number of warships to approach US maritime borders, saying that the sanctions relief granted Iran did not moderate its aggressive policies, but rather led to the "exact opposite."

Iranian TV airs simulated bombing of Tel Aviv

Iranian state TV on Friday ran a documentary featuring a computerized video of Iran’s drones and missiles bombing Tel Aviv, Haifa, Ben Gurion Airport and the Dimona nuclear reactor in a hypothetical retaliation for an Israeli or American strike on the Islamic Republic.

Iranian drones and missiles are also shown carrying out simulated strikes on the American aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, downing American aircraft and striking American military targets in the Persian Gulf.

The clip was broadcast amid a clear escalation of anti-American rhetoric and even action by Iran: On Saturday, an Iranian admiral announced that Iran had despatched warships to the North Atlantic, while Iran’s spiritual leader Ayatollah AliKhamenei denounced the Americans as liars who, while professing to be friends of Iran, would bring down his regime if they could. He also said it was “amusing” that the US thought Iran would reduce its “defensive capabilities.”

The film, entitled “The Nightmare of Vultures,” opens with Supreme Leader Khamenei addressing military academy graduates in 2011, warning: “Anybody who thinks of attacking the Islamic Republic of Iran should be prepared to receive strong slaps and iron fists from the Armed Forces.”

“And America, its regional puppets and its guard dog – the Zionist regime – should know that the response of the Iranian nation to any kind of aggression, attacks or even threats will be a response that will make them collapse from within,” the film shows him saying.

Set to dramatic music, the video shows Iranian drones and missiles carrying out strikes against Tel Aviv’s Kikar Hamedina square, the Azrieli Towers skyscrapers, and the IDF’s Kirya central command complex, as well as Ben Gurion International Airport, Haifa’s Technion, several army and air force bases, and the nuclear reactor in Dimona.

The strike on the Israel’s central command building is shown taking place while former prime minister Ehud Olmert and former defense minister Amir Peretz — who served in that capacity during the 2006 Second Lebanon War — are inside convening a meeting.

The clips of drone strikes on Israel are interspersed with shots of Israeli emergency personnel evacuating injured Israeli civilians and soldiers while air raid sirens wail.

A barrage of missiles brings down Tel Aviv’s skyscrapers in a final blow.

Afterwards, Iranian drones and missiles are show attacking the American aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln on its way through the Strait of Hormuz into the Persian Gulf. Iranian drones are shown downing several American aircraft before sinking the US capital ship. Zooming out to a map of the Middle East marked with US military bases, Iranian missiles are then shown striking American military targets across the Persian Gulf.

In November, Iranian state television aired a shorter animated clip showing Iranian missiles targeting Israeli cities.

Iranian leaders have made repeated threats to wipe Israel off the map, and have threatened to annihilate Tel Aviv should Iran’s nuclear facilities be attacked by the West.
