Foreigners are Dumping US Treasurys as Never Before

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:
Bloodletting in one of the most conservative investments.
All kinds of things are now happening in the world of bonds that haven’t happened before. For example, authorities in China today halted trading for the first time ever in futures contracts of government bonds, after prices had swooned, with the 10-year yield hitting 3.4%. Trading didn’t resume until after the People’s Bank of China injected $22 billion into the short-term money market.
What does this turmoil have to do with US Treasurys? China has been dumping them to stave off problems in its own house….

It’s Back On: Clinton Investigation Re-Opened By New York FBI

by Whitney Webb, ?True Activist:
Officials at FBI headquarters have ordered the continuation of the agency’s investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
Not long after last month’s election, the Hillary Clinton campaign blamed FBI Director James Comey for its Nov 8th loss. Just 11 days before the contest, Comey had announced the re-opening of the agency’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server after new, never-before-seen emails were discovered on the laptop of Anthony Weiner. However, that investigation was, again, shut down after FBI agents reportedly vetted 650,000 emails in 691,200 seconds (8 days). After the election turned sour for Clinton , Comey was among the first to be blamed for her “shocking” loss to President-Elect Donald Trump. After Comey “caved,” the FBI seemed to fall into line – until recently. When the CIA announced its baseless claim that the Russians “interfered” with a presumptive Clinton win just days ago, the FBI were among the first to dissent saying that assumption was based on scant evidence. Now, the FBI has drastically escalated the stand-off between government factions by ordering a continuation of the agency’s probe into the dealings of the Clinton Foundation – the “charity” run by Clinton and her family.

As Obama Plans Retaliation Against "Russian Hacking", A Problem Emerges

While Obama vowed on Friday to “send a clear message to Russia” as both a punishment and a deterrent to alleged Russian hacking of the US presidential elections, a problem has emerged: some of the options were rejected as ineffective, others as too risky.

Isolating Russia: A Fool’s Errand

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:
President Obama has conducted the most deleterious foreign policy of any U.S. president since Woodrow Wilson.
This is not due just to a dead ambassador on the streets of Benghazi, a phony red line in Syria which led to 400,000 dead, 2 million wounded, and two million refugees, losing Egypt to Islamic radicals, or empowering a terrorist regime in Iran.
Those developments alone are enough to rank Obama among the worst foreign policy presidents. Obama’s most egregious error is far worse — his inability to grasp the balance-of-power dynamics among the U.S., Russia and China. Yet Obama’s blunder is Trump’s opening to rescue U.S. foreign policy from grave weakness, and restore U.S. leadership to the world.

Bitter In Aleppo Defeat, US And EU Seek To Further Demonize Russia

Was the DNC ‘Hacked’, or Are They Just Idiots? Podesta Gave His Email Password to a ‘Nigerian Prince’

by Matthew Allen, Russia Insider:
If we believe the official narrative, a super elite team of scary Kremlin hackers broke into the DNC’s servers. But evidence points to a common phishing scam aimed at clueless octogenarians.
There is a shadowy group of extremely dangerous Kremlin cyber soldiers who somehow managed to crack into the DNC, as well as Podesta’s private Gmail account, using sophisticated Russian computer wizardry. We cannot even discuss how they did it, not even in 3,000 word New York Times features, because their methods are so advanced that revealing them would compromise our CIA moles in Moscow.

Podesta: "FBI Only Contacted Me After Wikileaks Started Dropping My Emails"

"The first time I was contacted by the FBI was two days after WikiLeaks started dropping my emails," Podesta told NBC's Chuck Todd, hinting that the leak was meant to deflect attention from the infamous Trump Tape: "On Oct. 7, the Access Hollywood tape comes out. One hour later, WikiLeaks started dropping my emails into the public."

Paul Craig Roberts Warns "A CIA-led Coup Against American Democracy Is Unfolding Before Our Eyes"

President Eisenhower warned us more than a half century ago of the danger that the military/security complex presents to US democracy. In the decades since Eisenhower’s warning, the military/security complex has become more powerful than the American people and is demonstrating its power by overturning a presidential election.

Vatican, Bilderberg and a ‘Migration’ Crisis

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:
The annual meeting of the secretive Bilderberg Group took place this year in Dresden, Germany from June 9-12. Notable is their terminology in an official press release announcing topics for discussion. Point three (not necessarily in terms of importance) is curiously titled “Europe: migration, growth, reform, vision, unity.” Curious is the choice of the word “migration” for the EU refugee crisis that began in Spring 2015 as Turkey opened the detention centers and refugee camps from Syrian war refugees and pointed them to the EU. More about that later on. Here I want to concentrate on the little-known historical ties or links between the Bilderberg Meetings, founded in 1954, and the Vatican, and the role of both in heating up the current EU refugee instability.
In May, 1954 in Oosterbeek, near to the German border, a highly secret meeting was held at the Hotel de Bilderberg. The meeting was hosted by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, husband of Queen Juliana. It was called simply, “Bilderberg Conference,” from the name of the hotel where the first talks were held. Out of three days of private discussion, a new Trans-Atlantic think-tank was created. It was to become one of the most effective organizations for influencing world events after 1954 up to the present, and one of the most damaging and secretive.

Trump Is Clearly Preparing for Civil War

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
“What we used to talk about that is coming, is no longer coming, it is already here”
Steve Quayle
About nine months ago, Steve Quayle, on my radio show, made the above observation. In the time since that show, I am reminded, almost daily about how correct Steve was when he made that statement on my show. The day of decision is here. The proverbial line in the sand has been drawn. You are either an activist or a victim. You are either a globalist or a nationalist. You are either a Christian or not. If you are saved, then you may go forward with courage because your destiny is already assured. Unquestionably the hour of decision is here and the fence that many of you have sitting on has turned to splinters and you will soon be forced off of the fence of indecision.

Silver Price Manipulation Continues In 2016

by Turd Ferguson, TF Metals Report:
Well, it appears that things have stabilized following this year’s post-FOMC massive gold and silver price raid. The only thing that remains to be seen is whether price can rebound somewhat into year end and hold onto a positive 2016.
So we wait and watch…seriously, what else can we do? It has now been proven and admitted that teams of traders at The Bullion Banks actively collude to manage and manipulate price. (See here: And it’s obvious that The Criminals are still at it when you examine the silver chart over the past 90 days. Three massive raids have been staged to inflict devastating, technical damage.

A CIA-led Coup Against American Democracy Is Unfolding Before Our Eyes
Paul Craig Roberts
This article by Moon of Alabama is not conspiracy theory: Read it carefully. Check out the links.
The article is a documented and accurate description of a coup that is underway. The extraordinary lies that are being perpetrated by the media and by members of the US government have as their obvious purpose the prevention of a Donald Trump presidency. There is no other reason for the extraordinary blatant lies for which there is not a shred of evidence. Indeed, there is massive real evidence to the contrary. Yet the coup proceeds and gathers steam.

How Dakota Access Pipeline Profiteering Rewrote Law & Screwed Us All

from Underground Reporter:

As with every project sewing corporate profits to politicians with the thread of government approval, the Dakota Access Pipeline didn’t come to fruition as a simple sign-on-the-dotted-line business arrangement.
Mobilizing militarized police to a prayer gathering and deploying of mercenaries to sic vicious dogs on unarmed Native Americans attempting to protect land and water from sullying by Big Oil and Gas, for all intents and purposes, appeared at best disproportionately excessive.
But on closer inspection, as ReverbPress reported, the nearly inscrutable web of corporate and political interests backing the project — and the years of cunning forethought they undertook to ensure its implementation — make the Dakota Access Pipeline one of the more devious usurpations of fundamental rights to date.
