While Jim Rickards explains many reasons why it is important to own gold, he leaves out the most important factor. Jim has become one of the more prominent names in the precious metals community due to his strong opinion on owning gold even though he worked on Wall Street (the anti-gold financial establishment) for 35 years.
Jim Rickards has written several best-selling books such as, Currency Wars, The Death Of Money and more recently, The New Case For Gold. Rickards is a big believer in owning gold to protect against the collapse of the highly leveraged derivatives based financial industry.
The power and control that George Soros held over Ukraine after the Maidan is beyond belief.
We noted in a previous post how important Ukraine was to George Soros, with documents from DC Leaks that show Soros, and his Open Society NGO, scouring the Greek media and political landscape to push the benefits of his Ukraine coup upon a Russian leaning Greek society.
Now more documents, in the massive 2,500 leaked tranche, show the immense power and control Soros had over Ukraine immediately following the illegal Maidan government overthrow.
When some time ago Noam Chomsky and I met at MIT, in order to write a book “On Western Terrorism: From Hiroshima to Drone Warfare” and to produce a film with the same title together, the topic we mainly aimed at discussing was that of the countless genocides the West has committed all over the world since the end of the WWII. The second topic was impunity.
But no matter what atrocities we re-visited, our conversation kept slipping towards one crucial theme: the propaganda that has been manufactured in media centers like New York, Paris, London and other North American and European cities; the propaganda created in order to twist both the past and the present. Without such brainwashing and the almost total indoctrination of the Western general public and the ‘elites’ in all of the ‘client’ states, no imperialist and neo-colonialist policies would have become truly successful.
Venezuelan police crushed and chopped up nearly 2,000 shotguns and pistols in a Caracas city square on Wednesday, as the new interior minister relaunched a long-stalled gun control campaign in one of the world’s most crime-ridden countries.
Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said the event marked the renewal of efforts to disarm Venezuelans, through a combination of seizures and a voluntary program to swap guns for electrical goods.
Venezuela has the world’s second highest murder rate and the street gangs that plague its poor neighborhoods have become increasingly heavily armed in recent years, at a time when a deep recession has reduced resources available to police.
On Friday, I posted a comment that our friend TF suggested would make an interesting weekend thread for group discussion. As a loyal soldier in the Fabulous Turd Army (a phrase that strikes fear in the hearts of Keynesians everywhere, most recently in the halls of the US Mint via FOI requests via our friend Koos Jansen) I am hereby submitting the idea as a thread for scrutiny, discussion, scorn, etc. This will be the extended version, with some extra stuff that Murphy (my pal and partner in fevered theorizing) and I have been throwing back and forth, both here and outside TFMR. In the immortal words of Hans and Franz, “Listen to me now, and hear me later”:
