UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage has taken one step closer to backing Front National candidate Marine Le Pen in the French presidential elections in 2017, declaring that if Ms. Le Pen wins, the European Union project will collapse entirely.
Mr. Farage, who has been known to harbour concerns about the Front National as a party, told the Sunday Express newspaper that he will be backing the “utterly respectable Eurosceptic” France Arise candidate in the first round.
n 2015, as a guest on Ron Paul’s Liberty Report, Economics Professor Joseph Salerno warned of a coming war on cash. Apparently, now, that time has come. Governments loathe cash transactions because they’re private and hard to tax. As a result, some countries are taking drastic measures to reclaim their bank notes.
Salerno said, “The French premier last year (2014) drew a parallel between the war on terror and the war on cash,” and warned the world’s economic elite are now “using the war on terror as a cover to get at cash.” The Mises Institute professor and VP predicted to Paul, “I think this could come in the next couple of years. If they have to bail out the financial system again…they’ll block the cash in the banks to prevent it from escaping and destabilizing these fractional reserve banks,” Salerno said.

NN, among many other establishment media platforms, has long promoted the US-European funded “Syrian Civil Defence” also known as the “White Helmets.”
Yet on November 25, they published an article titled, “Syria’s White Helmets apologize for Mannequin Challenge video,” in which they admit:
It’s a familiar scene: Syria Civil Defence, also known as the “White Helmets,” rushing to rescue a man covered in rubble, but unlike thousands of other videos from Aleppo, this one is staged.
Monsanto have come under more pressure recently after the WHO defined the main ingredient in their popular weedkiller ‘Roundup’ as a ‘probably human carcinogen’.
They are still trying to pick up the pieces from the PR disaster, but it turns out Monsanto may have been aware of the link between glyphosate and cancer for up 35 years.
Research Scientist Dr. Anthony Samsel has studies the effects on glyphosate on the human body for years, and has revealed the harmfulness of its nature. He has worked with a Dr. Stephanie Seneff, who released the warning that as many as half of all US children could be autistic by 2025 (in large part due to glyphosate exposure).
Conventional wisdom has it that a relatively weaker currency will stimulate exports and years of monetary interventions have been based on this very premise. In this article, we examine whether this rule might indeed be an oversimplified solution to a deeply complex problem and an unsound “panacea”, with potentially dangerous side-effects. We look at one of the most notable exceptions to this rule, the case of Switzerland, which casts doubt over the prudence and the net effect of central bank policies around the world to manipulate and control their currencies.
Exchange rate fundamentals
A currency reflects its purchasing power relative to other currencies and while exchange rate movements are not the sole indicator of the performance of an economy, they are certainly an important one. These movements reflect the level of supply and demand of a given currency, as well as inflation, and other economic factors.
Steve Moore, the chief economist at Heritage Foundation and a Donald Trump advisor, went on Sunday Morning Futures to discuss the current situation with the Stein-Clinton recount efforts.
Moore warned that if the vote is overturned in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania the country will be looking at a civil war.
No rest for the wicked. With the shockwaves from Brexit and President Trump still reverberating around the world, the established order is bracing for more bad news. Next up is a December 4 Italian constitutional referendum that might end the reign of centrist prime minister Matteo Renzi and replace him with a bunch of anti-euro iconoclasts from the Brexit/Trump part of the spectrum. Here’s an excerpt from a much longer, deep-context Guardian UK article:
As the air of insurgency becomes unmistakable, the technical debate over reforming a 70-year-old constitution is in danger of becoming a sideshow. Perhaps the most disturbing poll for Renzi found last week that only 40% of Italians say they will vote on the reform package; 56% consider their vote to be more a verdict on the prime minister, his government and, by implication, the state of the nation.
It’s been a torrid week for gold bulls, with prices sliding through the $1200 level, where some support could have been expected, only bottoming at $1175 in late-Asian trade last night.
In early European trade, gold seems to have found some support recovering to $1190. Gold is only up 12% on the year at these levels, and the Dow has now outperformed it. Furthermore, technical analysts will not be cheered by the next chart, which shows gold’s moving averages forming a death cross.
