Donald Trump, in obedience to his Zionist handlers, has moved the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to West Jerusalem – a stupid and dangerous move. He chose to be absent from the Jerusalem celebration held in his honor May 14th. While a select crowd of well-dressed American and Israeli officials regaled the new location of the embassy in West Jerusalem, sixty miles to the east the scene was one of death, destruction, and mourning.
It was merely one of a continuum of Zionist atrocities waged against native Palestinians. It has been the same for decades. The history reads like a made-for-TV series of invasion by unstoppable aliens. Thanks to the full backing by the US Military, the Israelis have run roughshod over the native Palestinians with constant massacres and encroachment upon Palestinian land. Today, Palestinians are forcibly pushed into Gaza which is now their prison. They are forced to live there without adequate food, water, sanitation, or medical facilities. Furthermore, the Israelis kill and maim the Palestinians (men, women, children) at will. They also drive them out of their homes, and claim they are doing this to defend themselves.
The Zionists get by with doing this because the US Government defends them in anything they do. Also, the churches in America brainwash everyone to believe that the Zionist Jews are the descendants of ancient Israelites, and that they have the approval of God to commit the atrocities against the Palestinians. But the truth is that the Zionist Jews are not Israelites at all. They are not Semitic. They are not related to Abraham. They are fakes who have adopted the name “Jew” and then pulled off the biggest hoax of modern times. They were empowered to do this only because they had the backing of the churches (which are not true Christian), the British and US governments, and the money power of international banks

What killed democracy was constant lying to the public, by politicians whose only way to win national public office has been to represent the interests of the super-rich at the same time as publicly promising to represent the interests of the public — “and may the better liar win!” — it’s a lying-contest. When democracy degenerates into that, the ‘democracy’ becomes dictatorship by the richest, the people who can fund the most lying. Such a government is called an aristocracy, no democracy at all, because the aristocracy rule there, the public don’t. It’s the type of government that the French Revolution was against and overthrew; and it’s the type of government that the American Revolution was against and overthrew; but it has been restored, in both countries

RRS

anything below 60 is a great buying oppurtunity in my view.I suspect we will be mich higher in 3 years time and that a global currency reset will be immensely beneficial to gold and will take many by surprise

In 2002 and early 2003, the drumbeat for aggression against Iraq was like Hitler’s drumbeat in 1939 for a ‘defensive’ invasion against Poland. It was a succession of one lie after another. But, yet, to this day, many Americans, and even some non-Americans, still trust the U.S. Government not to lie its way into aggression, even into aggression which destroys a nation that the U.S. regime claims to be trying to ‘save’, so that the U.S. regime’s true intentions are clearly very different from the benign ones that are being asserted. Believing any longer in such a Government, and in its press, is therefore to be a willing mental slave, of a regime that actually endangers the entire world (and which Government non-Americans consider to be the world’s most dangerous).

Dax - right shoulder forming ?



Thanks to Bobo for this

Despite a strong earnings season, former Republican congressman Ron Paul is renewing his call for a market meltdown.
He sees additional near-term corrections gripping stocks as the budget deficit exposes more vulnerabilities to the United States' capacity to do business.
"The fundamentals show that the spenders are in Washington. They're alive and well. The deficit is skyrocketing like never before," Paul said Tuesday on CNBC's "Futures Now." "The market is destined to go down."
The libertarian's comments came as the Dow kicked off May in the red and briefly fell back into correction territory. The index fell by more than 300 points on Tuesday before closing down by 64 points. The S&P 500 eked out a fractional gain.
Even with stocks under pressure, Paul contends the stock market is too expensive.
"The fundamental reason is that we've had too much printing of money — especially since 1971, especially with the QE. So, everything is artificial. There are big bubbles, so stocks are basically higher," he said.
The former presidential candidate isn't known for being subtle when it comes to his pullback calls.
"Ultimately, when these corrections have to occur, they always go down a lot more than people expect. Just like they go up higher than people expect," Paul said. "A 50 percent correction with all the distortion that has existed for all these years — I think it's very possible."
Paul falls short on offering a timeline, but last August he estimated a correction could be less than a year away. On Feb. 2, his warning became a reality. However, the magnitude was less than 50 percent.
Still, he believes a wave of massive selling is still ahead.
"In spite of what looks pretty secure in the economy in the statistics, I think it's in shambles. It's a real mess,"' he said.
There is one investment in particular that Paul deems as safe: gold.
He already owns it. But with gold trading around its lowest level of the year and risks looming, Paul is considering buying more.
"I personally would be better off if I did buy a little bit more gold," Paul said

https://www.davidicke.com/article/472342/silence-skripals-government-blocks-press-reports-media-change-record

There has been no recent reporting on the Skripal case in which a British-Russian double agent and his daughter were poisoned in Salisbury, England. There even seem to be attempts to change the public record of the case.

The British government alleged that the Skripals were poisoned by Novichok, a deadly nerve agent, and blamed Russia for it. There are still many open questions to ask but the British media, otherwise not afraid of 'door stepping', are curiously uninterested. We already noted in early April that the British press was throwing Novi-Fog™ onto the public. It was repeating outrageous and illogical claims from "security services" but did no genuine reporting on the Skripal case.

Now the former British ambassador Craig Murray quotes Clive Ponting, another former senior civil servant, who suspects that the British government issued a D-Notice. Such a notice forbids British media to report on an issue. Murray also points to a tweet by Channel 4 correspondent Alex Thomson from March 12 in which Thomsen mentions a D-Notice specifically related to Mr. Skripal's MI6 handler

One Pablo Miller, a British MI6 agent, had recruited Sergej Skripal. The former MI6 agent in Moscow, Christopher Steele, was also involved in the case. Skripal was caught by the Russian security services and went to jail. Pablo Miller, the MI6 recruiter, was also the handler of Sergej Skripal after he was released by Russia in a spy swap. He reportedly also lives in Salisbury. Both Christopher Steele and Pablo Miller work for Orbis Business Intelligence which created the "Dirty Dossier" about Donald Trump.

We early on suspected a relation between the "Dirty Dossier" and the Skripal affair:

Here are some question:
Did Skripal help Steele to make up the "dossier" about Trump?

Were Skripal's old connections used to contact other people in Russia to ask about Trump dirt?

Did Skripal threaten to talk about this?

If there is a connection between the dossier and Skripal, which seems very likely to me, then there are a number of people and organizations with potential motives to kill him. Lots of shady folks and officials on both sides of the Atlantic were involved in creating and running the anti-Trump/anti-Russia campaign. There are several investigations and some very dirty laundry might one day come to light.
