Great New Video

Lots of talk lately about China and its gold reserves and this is the topic of this latest, excellent video from our friends at Future Money Trends.

Over the weekend, we saw even more great stories about Chinese gold demand. Interesting links such as this from Koos: and this from Pravda:

This terrific video summarizes the current situation and concludes with a few suggestions as to how you can prepare for any announcements or events that might be forthcoming.

So, if we hear the word "China" and then switch between

  • China- the people/businesses
  • China- the gov, and 
  • China- the PBOC

as is necessary to follow his all-over-the-map sales pitch...

And THEN, if we also constantly blur "gold" between

  • Unmined Gold
  • Physical Gold, and
  • Fiat Gold

Oh, why bother.

So, China is going to announce huge "gold" holdings and the USD is going to crash.

China, as in the PBOC.  As in the Chinese Central Bank.  Who we just had verified from the zillionth angle receives their "gold" from the market process.

The cracks in the fiat system becoming more obvious story after story after story...

U.S., China Set For

U.S., China Set For High-Stakes Rivalry In Skies Above South China Sea, Report Says Mystery Threat To Warships Likely North Korean

U.S., China set for high-stakes rivalry in skies above South China Sea

HONG KONG (Reuters) – When the U.S. navy sent a littoral combat ship


icon1.png on its first patrol of the disputed Spratly islands in the South China Sea during the past week, it was watching the skies as well.

The USS Fort Worth, one of the most modern ships in the U.S. navy, dispatched a reconnaissance drone and a Seahawk helicopter to patrol the airspace, according to a little-noticed statement

While the navy didn’t mention China’s rapid land reclamation in the Spratlys, the ship’s actions were a demonstration of U.S. capabilities in the event Beijing declares an Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ) in the area – a move experts and some U.S. military officials see as increasingly likely.

“It’s not inevitable but if we are betting paychecks

ADIZs are not governed by formal treaties or laws but are used by some nations to extend control beyond national borders, requiring civilian and military aircraft to identify themselves or face possible military interception.

Mystery threat to American warships is likely North Korean

In 2013, the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Fleet hinted at a mysterious and “newly discovered threat” to American warships. Whatever it was, it was serious ?— ?and had America’s admirals spooked.

We knew the threat was probably a missile, because the Navy’s only mention of it was inside a contracting request for a new electronics countermeasures system designed for surface ships.

The Navy awarded a $65-million contract to the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory to develop the system within a “critically short” time frame.

Military & Aerospace Electronics, which first noticed the request, suggested that the threat was a radar-guided anti-ship missile from a country or terrorist group in the Middle East. We suggested a Chinese anti-ship missile.

It’s neither. The threat is most likely from a country the United States is still technically at war with ?— ?North Korea.

More precisely, the threat is probably a North Korean Kh-35 anti-ship cruise missile.

The Navy’s hurried development of a missile-defense system, begun just a year before the existence of the new North Korean cruise missile became public in the West, is a window into how the Pentagon is keeping tabs on the reclusive, hostile country ?— ?and how the U.S. responds to new dangers.

Is the US planning a “Gulf of

Is the US planning a “Gulf of Tonkin” incident in the South China Sea?


(WSWS) – Following weeks of scaremongering by American officials over China’s activities in the South China Sea, US Secretary of State John Kerry used his visit to Beijing last weekend to issue an ultimatum to Chinese leaders to halt land reclamation on islets and shoals. His Chinese counterpart Wang Yi bluntly refused, insisting that China would safeguard its sovereignty and territorial integrity “as firm as a rock.”

Washington is not going to take no for an answer. In what is already an explosive situation, the question has to be asked: Is the US preparing a “Gulf of Tonkin” incident as the pretext for direct military action against Chinese facilities and armed forces in the South China Sea? Such reckless brinkmanship would risk war between two nuclear armed powers.

The historic parallels are chilling. In 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson needed a justification for decisions that had already been made to dramatically escalate US military involvement in a civil war in Vietnam and to begin bombing targets in North Vietnam. Pentagon planners had concluded that Washington’s widely reviled puppet regime in Saigon was incapable of defeating the North Vietnamese-backed National Liberation Front on its own.

Preparations for massively expanding US involvement were drawn up well in advance. In the summer of 1964, the US worked with the South Vietnamese to stage a series of provocations—probes by US-supplied patrol boats to expose North Vietnamese radar systems. On August 2, the USS Maddox was monitoring one of these raids in the Gulf of Tonkin, part of the South China Sea, eight miles offshore and well within the North Vietnam’s 12-mile territorial waters, that provoked an exchange of fire with small North Vietnamese boats.

Two days later the USS Maddox, accompanied by the destroyer C. Turner Joy, reported coming under fire. There was, in fact, no attack. The entirely manufactured incident, surrounded by a barrage of media sensationalism and official lies, was exploited to paint North Vietnam as the aggressor. The belligerent response of the United States was presented as justified, defensive actions to maintain “international peace and security in Southeast Asia.”

The Gulf of Tonkin Resolution was passed by the US Congress on August 7, 1964, with just two votes against. It provided the quasi-legal cover for a criminal, open-ended war in Vietnam that claimed millions of lives, devastated the country’s economy and left a legacy of destruction that remains to this day.

Far more is at stake today. For decades, the US showed little interest in the festering territorial disputes in the South China Sea between China and its South East Asian neighbours. In 2010, however, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as part of the Obama administration’s “pivot to Asia” against China, declared that the US had “a national interest” in ensuring “freedom of navigation” in the strategic waters.

Over the past year, Washington has abandoned its pretence of neutrality in the maritime disputes. It has aggressively challenged the legitimacy of China’s claims and thus its administration of various shoals and reefs. Ignoring similar activities by other claimants, such as the Philippines and Vietnam, the US has portrayed land reclamation in the South China Sea as an aggressive threat to US national interests. In late March, Admiral Harry Harris, commander of the US Pacific Fleet, denounced China’s actions as the construction of “a great wall of sand.”

What if Putin is Telling the Truth?

Column: Society

Region: Russia in the World

1_20130220121459626On April 26 Russia’s main national TV station, Rossiya 1, featured President Vladimir Putin in a documentary to the Russian people on the events of the recent period including the annexation of Crimea, the US coup d’etat in Ukraine, and the general state of relations with the United States and the EU. His words were frank. And in the middle of his remarks the Russian former KGB chief dropped a political bombshell that was known by Russian intelligence two decades ago.

Putin stated bluntly that in his view the West would only be content in having a Russia weak, suffering and begging from the West, something clearly the Russian character is not disposed to. Then a short way into his remarks, the Russian President stated for the first time publicly something that Russian intelligence has known for almost two decades but kept silent until now, most probably in hopes of an era of better normalized Russia-US relations.

Putin stated that the terror in Chechnya and in the Russian Caucasus in the early 1990’s was actively backed by the CIA and western Intelligence services to deliberately weaken Russia. He noted that the Russian FSB foreign intelligence had documentation of the US covert role without giving details.

What Putin, an intelligence professional of the highest order, only hinted at in his remarks, I have documented in detail from non-Russian sources. The report has enormous implications to reveal to the world the long-standing hidden agenda of influential circles in Washington to destroy Russia as a functioning sovereign state, an agenda which includes the neo-nazi coup d’etat in Ukraine and severe financial sanction warfare against Moscow. The following is drawn on my book, “The Lost Hegemon” to be published soon…

China saves up 30,000 tons of gold to topple US dollar from global reign


China saves up 30,000 tons of gold to topple US dollar from global reign. China saves too much gold

China is waiting for the right moment to remove the US dollar from economic reign. Once the US dollar loses its leadership, China plans to make the yuan world's first currency. 

According to Duowei News, to ensure its domination, China is saving up gold. According to unconfirmed reports, China already has about 30,000 tons of the precious metal. If this is true, it means that China will be capable of brining the US dollar down in an instant.

Economic analyst Jing Zhou believes that in order to challenge such a powerful economy as that of the United States, one will need a very large amount of gold.

In addition, the Chinese authorities expect that the Chinese national currency will be added on the list of IMF reserve currencies that already includes the dollar, the euro, the pound sterling and the Japanese yen.

Thus, Beijing is getting ready to topple the US dollar by increasing its gold reserves. Noteworthy, Russia also sticks to a similar tactic: since 2005, the country has doubled its gold reserves. As of late 2014, Russia was ranked fifth in the world in terms of gold reserves"If China does have 30,000 tons of gold, then the yuan will have a very strong shield to protect itself. Even if it is not true, it is clear that China collects gold very actively. In addition, China's position in global financial markets has increased considerably," Duowei News said.
