Death Of The European Union – And The Precious Metal Demand Explosion Hence

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:
Even on a “quiet” news weekend – now that the PPT-orchestrated, soon-to-be-reversed “Trump-Flation” rally has put what remains of critical media analysis into hibernation – an utterly astounding amount of dramatically “PM bearish, everything-else-bullish” headlines emerged.  To the point that, albeit early, it’s starting to feel a lot like a year ago.

The award comes days before a new report revealed President Obama authorized the United States military to drop more than 26,000 bombs in 7 countries during the 2016 calendar year, according to an estimate by the Council on Foreign Relations. More than 24,000 of those bombs were dropped in Iraq and Syria as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, which is the U.S. led coalition against the Islamic State. The report itself says the actual number of bombs dropped is signficantly higher because does not release complete info about the number of munitions used for each mission.

You’re Being Lied to by the Government!

Believe nothing at face value from government at all levels and scoundrel media sources.
On all issues mattering most, especially geopolitical ones, they systematically lie – fake news substituting for truth-telling, information important to know suppressed.
