Damn..After 8 years WeTheSheeplez didn't make the list...
Washington Post Names Drudge, Zero Hedge, & Ron Paul As Anti-Clinton "Sophisticated Russian Propaganda Tools"
Very few people realise the enormous wealth transfer that will take place in the next 5 years. Most will lose 75-90% of their wealth and some 100%. What is interesting is that investors needn’t lose most of their money if they took a few measures to protect their fortune. I often speak to Family Offices who built fortunes from the $100s of million to many billions. Without exception, they believe that it is there skill in building a business or investing that has created these fortunes. It clearly requires a lot of skill and a bit of luck to build a sizeable fortune. But the magnitude of wealth today is not due to investment skills but to the enormous growth of credit and money printing that the world has experienced since the creation of the Fed in 1913. This has caused a global explosion in asset values of unparalleled proportions.
Walter Berukoff, CEO of Lion One Metals, illustrates in two sentences his fondness for precious metals. “My grandparents came here from Eastern Europe,” he explains. “What they brought with them was their gold.”
Berukoff’s grandparents weren’t alone. Decedents of slews of political and economic refugees relate similar experiences.
They explain in part Berukoff’s penchant for international opportunities, the latest of which is the Tuvatu gold play in the South Pacific Fiji island chain.
Currency the bolivar has devalued so much that traders have given up counting it
The government has commissioned 20,000 bolivar notes to keep up with the rate of inflation – the highest bank note in circulation is 100 bolivars
Baker Bremmer Rodrigues said he feels like Pablo Escobar because of the mountains of cash it takes to buy everyday items
The inflation rate in Venezuela is expected to reach 480 per cent this year, and 1,600 per cent by 2017
American Silver Eagle sales have been suspended for the year according to the Authorized Purchasers of U.S. Mint products. Once again, as we have seen in the past, the U.S. Mint makes a dramatic change without warning. Where else have we recently seen a very dramatic change in policy without warning? India announced, without warning, the ban of the most widely used bank notes in the country – without warning. While these are very different scenarios they demonstrate the absolute control governments around the world hold over our money and our currency. Silver, while tatted as an industrial metal, has been money longer than any other form of money on planet earth. Silver was money long before gold was accepted and circulated as money.
Following in the wake of White House policy, European political elites have been stepping up their groundless rhetoric about the growing military threat of Russia, Iran, China, which is held up simply to achieve the further militarization of Europe at the expense of social benefits for its citizens.
In his recent speech at an event hosted by the German Marshall Fund of the United States, NATO‘s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced that he expects a 3% increase in defence spending in Europe and Canada, however, he added, other than the US, only four NATO members are currently spending 2% of their GDP on defence.
The House of Lords, the upper house of the U.K.’s parliament, just passed the Investigatory Powers Bill, legislation that provides immense spying powers to the British government. The government’s new surveillance privileges are virtually unrivaled across the globe.
The bill, which critics have deemed the “Snooper’s Charter,” will force internet companies to keep records on their users for up to a year. These records will be accessed by numerous government departments, and the law also allows the government to force companies to hack into products they have sold so consumers can be monitored. Under the newly passed legislation, the government can also ask these companies to make their devices less secure so communications can be intercepted. They can also mandate that companies encrypt their devices on demand.
First, it appeared to be a fluke: this summer the Ukronazi regime sent a small terrorist unit into Crimea tasked with blowing up several targets in the Crimea (see here for details). They were arrested by the Russian security services. In November, another two saboteurs were caught by the FSB (see here).
And now something really remarkable happened. The Ukronazi security service kidnapped two Russian citizens in broad daylight and accused them of being “deserters”. Turns out that the two kidnapped men are Maksim Odintsov and Alexander Baranov and that both of them are junior servicemen in the Russian military (ensign and junior sergeant).
Hillary Clinton was spotted out shopping again… This time she was ‘shopping for groceries.’
It was totally random.
She hasn’t driven a car in 20 years. Now, since she got shellacked in the election, she’s been spotted all over the place doing ordinary things – like grocery shopping.
