Something unexpected happened when a customer of Xetra-Gold, whose designated sponsor is Deutsche Bank, demanded physical delivery of his gold as was his right...

Latest Guccifer Leak Reveals What Democrats Really Think Of Black Lives Matter

In newly leaked documents by Guccifer 2.0, a DCCC staffer (who now works for Hillary) describes the BLM as a "radical movement" and warns against using phrases like "all lives matter" or "black on black crime" as such phrases are “viewed as red herring attacks” and will "only anger BLM activists.”

Global Supply Chains Paralyzed After World's 7th Largest Container Shipper Files Bankruptcy, Assets Frozen

After years of relentless decline in the Baltic Dry index today the largest casualty finally emerged on Wednesday when South Korea's Hanjin Shipping, the country's largest shipping firm and the world's seventh-biggest container carrier, filed for court receivership on Wednesday after losing the support of its banks, leaving its assets frozen as ports from China to Spain denied access to its vessels.

Three Hanjin Ships Stranded Off California Coast

It did not take long for the fallout from this historic Hanjin bankruptcy - the largest ever for a container shipper in terms of capacity -  to reach the US, because as Bloomberg reported moments ago, at least three Hanjin ships are currently stranded off the California coast.

Paul Craig Roberts Asks "Can Americans Overthrow The Evil That Rules Them?"

"Those who control us are not going to give up their control without a world war. In the United States evil has seized power from the people, and evil will not give it back."

Amazon, Wells Fargo Unexpectedly Terminate Student Loan Partnership Announced Just One Month Ago and Wells Fargo on Wednesday ended their partnership to offer college students a discount on private student loans, quickly abandoning what the bank lauded just six weeks ago as a "tremendous opportunity."

Why Is The DHS Preparing To Take Control Of The US Election?

What do you do when you're the dictatorial leader of an oppressive government regime looking to maintain power while simultaneously preserving the facade of free and open elections?  Well, if you're the Obama administration then you look for avenues to nationalize state-run election infrastructure.

The Brazilian Economic Collapse Reaches Unprecedented Proportions

As the Brazilian stock market soars to multi-year highs, the local economy has imploded in spectacular fashion.

The Central Banks Are Now Ready To Launch Their 'Brave New World'

What analysts out there need to understand, whether they are independent or mainstream, is that a great shift in central bank policy and attitude is coming. Christine Lagarde at the IMF calls it the “economic reset,” some Fed officials, like Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart, state that central banks are entering a “brave new world.” These are highly loaded phrases that represent a drastic overhaul of the global financial system; an overhaul that is quite deliberate and inevitably destructive for certain nations and economies, including the U.S.

Donald Trump Explains His Immigration Policy - Live Feed

Following what even the mainstream media sheepishly admitted was a relatively successful trip across the border to meet with Pena Nieto this afternoon (they did not scream, punch, kick, or yell at each other), Donald Trump is about to unveil his all-new - perhaps slightly softer on the rhetoric side - immigration policy (in an attempt to put to rest weeks of uncertainty).

"Array Of Things" Launched - Enables Chicago To Spy On Entire City

Chicago is launching a creepy new campaign to blanket the mega-city in more surveillance through its Array of Things, creating a network of (at least) 500 sensors devices that will be shared in a growing Big Data cloud. The data will be publicly ‘released’ and also shared with city officials, “policy makers”, scientists/experts, law enforcement and (surely) government agencies, all of whom will process and analyze the data.

"I Am Frustrated And Down" - Abe Advisor Admits That Abenomics May Fail

One day after Koichi Hamada, one of Shinzo Abe's inner circle of economic advisors, suggested that the BOJ should monetize foreign bonds, admitted that "I’ve studied economics for more than 50 years and I’ve believed that what works in the world mostly works in Japan as well," Hamada said at a seminar in Tokyo, later admitting that "in the past six months, I’m starting to see there is potential that Abenomics may not work well."

Dear Janet... TED Spread Confirms 'Risk', Not 'Policy' Is Driving Rates

Once again FOMC policy is at odds with what is taking place in deeper and far more intellectually-sound money markets. The TED spread confirms risk not policy as the underlying mechanism, while the eurodollar futures price reveals the growing pessimism about what that could mean for the intermediate and long terms in real economic conditions.

7 Out Of 10 Millennials Are "Disengaged" From Meaningful Employment

According to "Wrong Way Gartman"...Trump should win...

And The Next President According To Dennis Gartman Is...

“It has to be a coincidence, because the market is wise enough to know that Mr. Trump has no chance of becoming the next president and thus cannot and will not affect monetary and/or economic policy here in the U.S. or abroad,” popular newsletter publisher Dennis Gartman told Kitco News Tuesday.

Bubbles And Elevators: From FONC To F##K!

Volumes have been written on behavioral finance and the seemingly “irrational” decisions investors tend to make to avoid straying from the herd. This article examines a current example coined “FOMO” (fear of missing out), in today’s texting parlance. Through a better understanding of the psychological dynamics of bubble mentality, we hope to help investment managers better grasp the complex role they must play when their concern for poor expected returns and higher levels of risk  are pitted against their client’s fear of not keeping pace with the market.

Saudi Arabia Fires 10,000 Substitute Imams To Save Money, As Banking Crisis Looms

In the latest confirmation of Saudi Arabia's rapidly deteriorating financial situation, having recently sacked 16,000 foreign workers, earlier today the Ministry of Islamic Affairs announced it has terminated the services of 10,000 substitute imams to save 360 million Saudi Riyals, or less than $100 million, the Saudi Gazette reported. The ministry gave the substitute imams the option to either transfer to the position of a full-time imam leading five prayers a day at a mosque or to leave their job all together.

This is a special 2016 U.S. Presidential Election UPDATE: FEDS TO STEAL 2016 ELECTION, & CLINTON BODY COUNT WARNING

Unknown Voluntary Servitude

As a general rule, the most successful man in life is the man who has the best information
by Rick Mills, Ahead of the Herd:
Here’s a long debated topic. Should we leave the creation of new money in the hands of bankers or place its creation solely with our government? Let’s try and answer it.
The Creature from Jekyll Island: On the night of November 22, 1910 a delegation of the nation’s leading financiers, led by Senator Nelson Aldrich, left New Jersey for a very secret ten day meeting on Jekyll Island, Georgia.
Aldrich had previously led the members of the National Monetary Commission on a two year banking tour of Europe. He had yet to write a report regarding the trip, nor had he yet offered any plans for banking reforms.

Top 7 Ways a Hospital Stay Can Go Downhill

by S.D. Wells, Natural News:
Even if you eat 99 percent organic food, take herbal supplements, exercise, consult a nutritionist and live responsibly, at some point you will wind up in a hospital for something – either a broken bone, severe laceration, emergency operation or maybe just to bring in a loved one for some other reason. Believe it or not, the scariest part of your visit to the hospital or emergency room goes beyond the pressing need you have for a doctor to cut you open, sew you up or reset that broken “wing.” Sure, you don’t want to bleed to death from your injury, and you’re probably just praying the pain will subside soon, but there are dangers lurking in that medical center; in fact, your “dire” situation could get far worse, and in a short period of time.
Welcome to America, where people think medical insurance is the best thing since sliced bread, but many find out the hard way that the slippery slope of medical care can rapidly decline, sending them tumbling down, down, down, into the abyss of the chronic sick-care nightmare that’s sadly become commonplace.

Russian President Putin and Russia’s Gift to the USA: Their 9-11 Tear Drop Monument

by Catherine J. Frompovich, Activist Post:
As the fifteenth anniversary of that awful, dreadful day of infamy, September 11, 2001, approaches, I could not help but be struck by a most moving gesture of solidarity and friendship from the Russians and their gift to the people of the USA, the Tear Drop Memorial to the Victims of the Tragedy of September 11, 2001 — something I’d not heard about, and am wondering how many other Americans also have not known about nor visited!
According to Wikipedia,
Groundbreaking was done on September 16, 2005, in a ceremony attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin,[2] and was dedicated on September 11, 2006, in a ceremony attended by former U.S. President Clinton. [1]
Here is President Putin’s address that he made during the official Russian presentation of such a beautifully executed monument:

Your Retirement Income is at Risk! — Part 2

by Gary Christenson, Deviant Investor:
Part one is available here.

Discussed in Part One:

  • Richard Russell on “The Big Lie.”
“Central banks create fiat money, denigrate gold, and try to convince the people that the money they print is wealth. That’s the great lie behind fiat money.”
  • Social Security and the pension plans of many cities, counties, states, and countries are increasingly insolvent as zero and negative interest rates destroy fixed income investment returns.
  • Worse, pension benefits are paid in continually devaluing fiat currencies. If the currency becomes worthless, so are your pension benefits. Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Argentina, and many more come to mind. The dollar, euro, pound, and yen are better by comparison, but that only means their devaluation, so far, has been less drastic. Read More

These Aren’t the Results You are Looking For: Googling Hillary’s health problems

from RT:


by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:
Why does the Department of Homeland Security all of a sudden want to oversee security for the election in November? Just a little while ago I checked the Drudge Report, and I was greeted by the following headline all in red: “HOMELAND SECURITY TO TAKE CHARGE OF ELECTIONS”. I was immediately alarmed, because I had already heard about how local election databases had been hacked, and Donald Trump has expressed concern that the presidential election in November could be rigged somehow. So I immediately clicked on the link and it took me to an article from the Washington Examiner

Hollande To Turkey, Russia – Stop Fighting And Do As You’re Told!

by Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post:
French President Hollande, who has not only pushed the knife further into the heart of the French economy and made certain that no trace of freedom will remain in France is now criticizing Turkey for its action against Kurdish fanatics and Western-backed Kurdish militias in Syria. In addition, Hollande is warning Russia not to become a “protagonist” in the war.
Hollande stated that “multiple, contradictory interventions carry the risk of a general inflammation.”
He added that Russia needs to be a “player in negotiations, not a protagonist in the action” and that it should join the alleged “anti-ISIL coalition” led by the U.S.

NOVEMBER VOTE TO BE HIJACKED: Obama Wants DHS to Take Over Jurisdiction of US Elections – Form Central Election System

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:
So this is how Hillary Clinton wins…
The Obama administration wants to take control away from the states and form a central government election system.
Because we know there is no bias in Washington DC – a district that votes 90% Democrat.
The Washington Examiner reported:
DHS has a vital security role in 16 areas of critical infrastructure and they provide a model for what the department and Johnson could have in mind for the election.

Obama's Former Doctor Says Hillary "Should Have A Thorough Neurological Exam"

In a move that is certain to spark another round of what much of the left-of-center media has dubbed "unfounded conspiracy theories" about the health of Hillary Clinton, overnight President Obama’s former physician, Dr. David Scheiner told CNN that he believes Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton should have a neurological examination due to her history of brain injury.


from InfoWars:
And, yes, Hillary did call Byrd her mentor
Often the media will turn a fact into a “some say” claim that signals to readers that a fact may not be a fact.
Recently the media did just that to shield Hillary Clinton from her close association with an actual, factual Ku Klux Klan leader.

Mainstream Media Admits It May "Never Recover" From 2016 Election

In a revealing statement that flew largely under the radar earlier this month, the mainstream media admitted it would never recover from its irresponsible and negligent coverage of the 2016 presidential election. A recent column published in the New York Post referred to the media’s reporting as the complete collapse of American journalism as we know it.

"The Fed Has Mastered Market Manipulation" - Bill Gross Explains Why He Is Not A "Broken Clock"

"The problem with Cassandras, such as Gross and Jim Grant and Stanley Druckenmiller, among a host of others, is that we/they can be compared to a broken watch that is right twice a day but wrong for the other 1,438 minutes. But believe me: This watch is ticking because of high global debt and out-of-date monetary/fiscal policies that hurt rather than heal real economies. Sooner rather than later, Yellen’s smooth shot from the fairway will find the deep rough."

Soros Seeks To “Reshape American Justice System” By Pouring Funds Into “Powerful” District Attorney Races

from ZeroHedge:
With hundreds of millions of dollars poured into presidential and congressional elections in the United States it can be difficult, even for mega donors like George Soros, to truly understand how much influence is being “bought.” That’s why Soros is pursuing a new strategy to dump millions into the campaigns of local district attorneys, a position which “exercises the greatest discretion and power in the system.” So far, Soros has funneled $3 million into seven local DA races over the past year but his support is “expected to intensify in the next few years, thanks to longer-term planning and candidate recruitment.” In general, Soros looks to fund progressive DAs running on platforms to “reduce racial disparity in sentencing” and support prison “diversion programs” for drug offenders instead of trials that could result in jail time. As Politico points out:

America Is Going Under Corporate Martial Law

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
Obama is making 30 campaign stops during the Congressional recess. No, he is not campaigning for Hillary Clinton, he is campaigning for the passage of the TPP. The TPP is a trade agreement that will reduce the world to a government ruled by the corporate edict of a few, instead of representative government by the many.

The GOP platform says, “A Republican President will complete negotiations for a Trans-Pacific Partnership to open rapidly developing Asian markets to U.S. products.”

Facebook Just Got A Whole Lot Creepier

We've been creeped out by Facebook for a long time now, but the following takes it to another level...

Oil Plunges Under $45 - Near Saudi-Short-Squeeze-Lows

After the biggest short squeeze in history - thanks to a well-placed and entirely useless Saudi statement about OPEC freeze discussions - oil prices have slipped notably - now back below $45 once again...

Deere, Monsanto Slide After DOJ Files Suit To Block Precision Planting Deal; Ag Sector Lower

Several months after dozens of merger arb funds had their worst day in years when the US government effectively killed the Pfizer-Allergan deal, moments ago both Deere and Monstanto stocks dropped, after the DOJ filed a lawsuit seeking to block Deere's deal for Monsanto's Precision Planting.

The Truth Emerges: EIA Admits It "Overestimated" Crude, Gasoline Demand In The First Half By 16%

In a note released moments ago by the EIA, whose bias to keeping prices as high as possible is no secret, admitted that "over the first six months of 2016, EIA weekly estimates underestimated total crude oil, petroleum, and biofuel exports by an average of 16%... which led to the overestimation of total consumption."

Dow, S&P Dump Into Red For August

2173.6... that's all that matters today... an S&P close above that will keep the 5-month streak of monthly gains alive... a drop below that and August is the worst for stocks in 6 months...

This Is The "Bubbly" Chart That Keeps The Fed's Rosengren Up At Night

 “Should a large negative shock occur, firms and households would be exposed to greater losses through their holdings of riskier assets than they would be if they were not reaching for yield.... should prevailing economic conditions change in response to a large negative economic shock, commercial real estate prices could decline relatively quickly, leading to large losses at leveraged firms.”

Pending Home Sales Tumble For 2nd Month In A Row

Thanks to a series of negative revisions, pending home sales have now tumbled YoY for two consecutive months (dropping 2.2% in July versus an expectation of a 2.2% rise). The revisions enabled the MoM print of +1.3% to beat expectations optically (thanks to a surge in The West sales +7.3%). The good news for affordability is that NAR's Larry Yun notes homebuilders focusing down-market; the bad news, obviously, is that more supply will disable the low-inventory bid holding prices up at record highs. Probably time to hike rates...

Someone Just Dumped Almost $5 Billion Notional Gold Into The Futures Market

Gold futures are near the psychologically important $1300 once again as someone decided this morning was the perfect time to dump $4.7 billion notional gold into the futures markets...

South Africa's Largest Debt Manager Halts Loans To State Firms, Rand Tumbles

"We’ve observed recent reports that strongly hint of conflict between branches of South Africa’s government, the possible machinations of patronage networks and a seeming challenge to the National Treasury’s independence... It is difficult to make reasoned and defensible decisions to continue providing state-owned companies with additional funding using clients’ money."

ADP Continues Weakening Trend As Goods-Producing Jobs Shrank... Again

The general trend of weakenig ADP job growth continues in August with a 177k print (in line with expectations). Goods-related jobs dropped 6k but Service-related roles rose 183k, but notably construction jobs fell 2k while zero new manufacturing jobs were created, even though some 19,200 "franchise workers" were added. It is also worth pointing out that over the past five months the average ADP employment gain is 175K, which is the lowest since July 2013.

In Historic Event, China Sells First World Bank SDR-Denominated Bonds In Decades

In one of the most closely followed bond issues in recent history, overnight the IBRD, one of the five member-institutions of the World Bank Group, sold 500 million SDR-denominated three-year bonds carrying a coupon of 0.49% at an auction in China's interbank market on Wednesday. This was the first SDR denominated offering in three decades, with the issuance symbolically taking place in Shanghai one month before the official inclusion of China's currency in the SDR basket.

Architect of the ‘New World Order’ is Giving up on America’s Empire

by Darius Shahtahmasebi, The Anti Media:
Foreign policy lunatic, architect of the ‘New World Order,’ and personal mentor to Barack Obama, Zbigniew Brzezinski, appears to have abandoned his lifelong dream of a complete, unchallenged American empire. He is now yielding to what he refers to as a “global realignment,” instead.
Some of Brzezinski’s most notable foreign policy achievements to date include brokering the Israel-Egypt peace treaty, actively supporting Poland’s opposition Solidarity movement, providing covert support for national independence movements in the former Soviet Union, and normalizing relations between the U.S. and China. Most notoriously, Brzezinski was instrumental in providing assistance to the Afghan mujahideen fighters who were battling the Soviet invasion (these fighters became the bulk of al-Qaeda and included Osama bin Laden). He was also a strong advocate of NATO expansion in the face of Vladimir Putin’s rise to power in Russia.

Financial Big Bang is Closer Than Ever

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:
These past two weeks rival any I’ve seen in my 14½ years of minute-to-minute PM watching – during which, the Cartel has relentlessly suppressed prices amidst an unrelenting blizzard of “PM bullish, everything-else-bearish” news flow. Using cover of the two slowest trading weeks of the year, they have aggressively pushed prices away from the indisputable “breakout levels” of $1,370/oz for gold – representing the “downtrend line” created by September 2011’s “Operation PM Annihilation I,” December 2011’s “Operation PM Annihilation II,” February 2012’s “Leap Day Violation,” and April 2013” Alternative Currencies Destruction” raids; and $20.45/oz silver, representing its 50-month moving average.
Yesterday was particularly egregious; as with interest rates barely higher, and for much of the day, flat or lower, paper gold and silver were bombed; after having barely been allowed to rise Monday, when interest rates – “hawkish” Yellen and Fischer comments notwithstanding – plummeted.

The Subprime Loan Crisis Is Back…Here’s What It Could Mean for the Economy

by Doug Casey, Casey Research:
Subprime loans are going bad again.
A “subprime” loan is a loan made to someone with bad credit. If the term sounds familiar, it’s because lenders issued millions of subprime loans during the early to mid-2000s.
Banks made these risky loans thinking housing prices would “never fall.” When they did, subprime borrowers stopped paying their mortgages. The U.S. housing market collapsed, triggering the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.

The Night That Is Upon Us and the Dawn of a New Era

by Hugo Salinas Price, Gold Seek:
At what point in History does humanity find itself? Where are we? In the course of the past centuries, the study of the physical sciences, born in the 16th Century when the Englishman Francis Bacon established the “Scientific Method”, has had such enormous success and has so greatly influenced humanity, that Science has become a materialist world-religion.
The central problem of our times is that official economists attempt to apply the “Scientific Method” when designing economic policies for governments, and this method is not applicable to human activity. The “Scientific Method” cannot be applied to social concerns, because physical matter and human beings behave in totally different ways. Matter cannot choose, and human beings do choose their behavior. So, while action applied to matter produces predictable results, action applied to human beings must consider the fact that human being do choose, they do have options, and thus their behavior cannot be predicted successfully, cannot be quantified nor expressed correctly in equations. The world’s economists ignore this fundamental fact, and so they formulate economic plans for the State that always turn out as counter-productive, because their plans produce results that are always quite the opposite of what they expected.

Hillary Clinton Slams Conspiracy Theorists with a Conspiracy Theory of Her Own

from The Anti Media:
Hillary Clinton’s recent “alt right” speech marks a new and dangerous low in what has become race to the bottom – and, should she be elected, it has ominous foreign policy implications as well.
Alarmed that Trump is reaching out to the African-American community, Mrs. Clinton tried to make the case that the GOP candidate is a apologist for such groups as the Ku Klux Klan and an obscure amalgam she dubbed the “alt right.” As she named this latter group, there was a significant silence, a pause in the cheering: perhaps her audience thought she was having a senior moment of the intestinal variety.

The Election Has Been Hacked: The Dismal Reality Of Having No Real Electoral Choices

Politics is a game, a joke, a hustle, a con, a distraction, a spectacle, a sport, and for many devout Americans, a religion. It is a political illusion aimed at persuading the citizenry that we are free, that our vote counts, and that we actually have some control over the government when in fact, we are prisoners of a police state. In other words, it’s a sophisticated ruse aimed at keeping us divided and fighting over two parties whose priorities are exactly the same so that we don’t join forces and do what the Declaration of Independence suggests, which is to throw the whole lot out and start over.

Do Newly Built Skyscrapers Signal The Top Of The Stock Market?

In the market, extreme optimism results in price bubbles. One of the real-life manifestations of extremely positive social mood is the construction of enormous buildings. Market tops and skyscrapers often seem to emerge simultaneously, because both phenomena are the result of the illusion of infinite prosperity. But extreme psychological conditions do not last very long...

An Academic Tries To Explain The Yield Curve, Says "Gloom" Is Irrational

To the academics, “gloom” is irrational and thus requires translation into math to become somehow backwards explanatory for why the economy that “should be” isn’t. In the actual economy, “gloom” is properly called reality. In this world, people know all-too-well that jobs disappeared during and after the Great Recession and never came back. No amount of asset price manipulation can possibly make up that difference. This math is finally welcoming economists to that long run, a place their patron saint, Keynes, said didn’t exist.

China Bans Low Income 'Terrorists' From Guangzhou; Those Willing To Buy Fancy Hotels Still Welcome

Apparently poor people from Pakistan, Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Afghanistan are no longer allowed at low-end hotels in Guangzhou, China.  That said, all are still welcome at higher-end resorts.

Gold Withdrawals From The NY Fed Accelerate, Hit 388 Tons Since 2014

While central banks assure the population that there is nothing to worry about when it comes to paper money, which may or may not soon be banned if certain Harvard economists have their way, they have been quietly accelerating their withdrawals of gold from the biggest centralized depository of global gold in the world: the New York Federal Reserve.

Debt, Deficits & Economic Warnings

The processes that fueled the economic growth over the last 30 years are now beginning to run in reverse, and when combined with the demographic shifts in the U.S., the impact could be far more immediate and prolonged than the media, economists and analysts are currently expecting...It is simply a function of the math.

Michael Lewitt: "We're In The Late Stages of Ponzi Finance"

“They’ve tried to solve the debt crisis by printing trillions of dollars of more debt, and somehow they expect the economy to grow under the weight of those burdens. We’re just borrowing new money to pay back old money. I would say that we’re in the late stages of Ponzi finance.”

Stanley Fischer's Bizarre Justification For Negative Rates

"Well, clearly there are different responses to negative rates. If you’re a saver, they’re very difficult to deal with and to accept, although typically they go along with quite decent equity prices. But we consider all that and we have to make trade-offs in economics all the time and the idea is the lower the interest rate the better it is for investors."

Obama Admits 10,000 Syrian Refugees: This Is Where They Are Headed

Yesterday, the White House announced that the US had met President Obama’s goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country; it did so ahead of schedule.  So where are they going: the top state destination for refugee influx are the states of Michigan and California.

Is Clinton's Lead Over Trump As Large As Advertised?

There seems to be a lot of smug certitude that Trump is definitely destined to lose the election. We are not so sure. At the very least we would think that the race between Trump and Clinton is far tighter than it appears according to recent polls. This bring us back to a point we mentioned last week: the market is not pricing in the “risk” of an election upset.

How High Will Silver’s Value Increase Compared To Gold During The Next Crash? Check Out These Charts

Many investors believe the value of silver will surge much higher in percentage terms compared to gold during the next financial and economic crash.

Thus, it will likely make silver one of the best investment strategies of a lifetime.
While some readers may say that this is just more hype, the fundamentals provide us a pretty clear picture. That is, if we are able to understand the entire system and how things are likely to unfold.

Array of Things Allow Chicago To Spy On Entire City: “Wake Up And Realize We’re Just Servants”

White Lives Matter Has Been Declared a Hate Group

by Liam Stack, New York Times:

A white nationalist group called White Lives Matter, which calls itself an opponent of the Black Lives Matter movement, has been declared a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that tracks extremist groups in the United States.
“The White Lives Matter website says their movement is dedicated to the preservation of the white race. That tells you all you need to know,” said Heidi Beirich, the director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala. “They’re against integration, immigration.
