n Bavaria Ansbach, there was apparently a bomb attack on Sunday The Bavarian interior ministry told Reuters. “At present we stand, it is not an accident.” It summarized the evidence that it is a “deliberately provoked explosion.” This followed the two Hong Kong men who were left critically injured after battling an Afghan teenager armed with an ax and a knife as they tried to save other family members during a horrific attack on a passenger train in southern Germany. Then there was in Reutlingen an attack with a machete that killed a pregnant woman and injured two others. The man was arrested a few minutes later nearby. The suspect had previously quarreled with the woman in the area of the central bus station. The arrested person was a 21-year-old asylum seeker from Syria. He was already known to the police because of multiple encounters.
Silver has surged over 40% since the beginning of 2016, making it the number performing commodity of 2016.
But is the surge of the precious metal just the beginning of things to come?
Historically the price of silver tends to track the price of gold as both are seen as monetary metals.
Silver is often more volatile, however, experiencing larger up and downswings with market movements. Essentially, silver could be explained as gold on steroids.
Despite coming out of the ground at a ratio of 9:1, the price ratio of silver to gold currently sits at around 65:1.
With today’s price of silver at AU$26.5p/oz and gold $1755p/oz, we would have to see silver at around $195p/oz to see that ratio balance out.
Days after the German mainstream press attempted to portray the Munich shooter both as an ISIS fighter and a right wing extremist, more information has come to light surrounding the history of the shooter and his motives. But, the more information reported by the mainstream press regarding the incident, the more questions that arise in connection to the incident itself.
To be clear, there is not enough evidence to clearly label this attack as a false flag or as a lone nut incident. Still, there are a number of questions that need to be answered and there are a number of aspects to this case that need to be addressed as potentially more than merely striking coincidences. We must avoid the temptation to label every attack as a false flag but we must never ignore the signs that we are witnessing one.

DUBLIN – After our trip to Las Vegas, we spent one night in Baltimore and then got on another airplane. Standing in line, unpacking bags, getting zapped by X-ray machines – it has all become so routine we almost forget how absurd it is.
While armies of TSA agents pat down grandmothers and Girl Scouts, ex-soldiers take aim at the police… nutcases run down tourists with delivery trucks… and a fellow with a grudge against gays nearly wipes out an entire nightclub.
We feel so lucky. It is not every generation that gets to witness so many grotesque things at once. Stocks are at an all-time high. Bond yields are at an all-time low. And never have so many people owed so much to so few.
Trump isn’t going to roll over, he knows HRC is crooked. If they miscalculate and steal this from Trump? Stone has a plan to counter it! AJ wants to see everyone wearing the Clinton Rape shirt out at the DNC.
The world’s biggest economy is unraveling.
Regular readers know we’re talking about the European Union (EU). The EU is an economic union made up of 28 countries. It was put together after World War II to keep European countries from going to war with one another.
Over time, it turned into the world’s biggest economic experiment. And, right now, that experiment is going awry.
As you probably heard, the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU a month ago. The “Brexit,” as folks are calling it, shook financial markets from London to New York City. It knocked more than $3 trillion from the global stock market in two days.
Then, things calmed down. Over the past three weeks, global stocks have regained more than $4.5 trillion. The S&P 500 and Dow just hit new all-time highs. Many folks now think things are OK in Europe.
It’s Monday, and the Yen/dollar exchange rate is unchanged from Friday’s close. Thus, gold and silver should be unchanged, too – right? Which I say facetiously, as the premise I wrote about Thursday, based on 15 years of tick-for-tick Precious Metal experience, is again proven true. Which is, the “trading relationship” between Precious Metals and the Yen/dollar – just like their fundamental relationship – is pure fiction. At least, the ridiculous notion that the Bank of Japan’s attempts to destroy the Yen – with, say, “helicopter money,” is LOL, “bearish” for gold and silver.
Frankly, it doesn’t take rocket science to see that when the Cartel has the (temporary) upper hand – which, per yesterday’s article, in which I highlighted the “commercials”’ record short position, they are in desperate seeking – they create a “whatever is down” algorithm scheme, in which paper PM prices are conveniently linked to whatever the day’s “decline du jour” might be.
f you’re ‘broke’, but breathing, while you may be strapped for cash – you’re still eating – because you’re not dead
If you wish to become better prepared (for disaster, SHTF, etc..), although you’re short on cash, there are some things that you can do to help yourself for your preparedness:
(UPDATED and re-posted for your further comments and help towards others in this situation)
First, it’s not always about having the extra cash to buy preps, it’s often about your own awareness, ingenuity, creativeness, and adaptability to offset risks that come your way and/or to find unique solutions to problems (e.g. while being short of cash).
