Storm Clouds Gathering

Thu, Sep 18, 2014 - 6:27pm

If you have the time, please take a few minutes to watch this video.

Two things:

  1. I like these StormCloudsGathering guys. They're not just out to sensationalize and they try to get it right. Case in point...back during the "Cliven Bundy Crisis", they reworked and even pulled some of their videos as new information became available. That's honorable and I respect them for it.
  2. Like anything else, there are parts of this video that are debatable and I don't endorse all of their conclusions. However, who am I to say that they are wrong or inaccurate? Perhaps some of the pieces may connect differently than proposed.

That said, this is an extremely well-done and informative video and the base conclusion that maintaining dollar hegemony is the primary motivation for US "foreign policy" is certainly accurate. Even if you disagree with the premise, it's worth watching just for the concise explanation of the petro-dollar system.

Please watch and then consider linking/forwarding.

I just watched this video, posted on the other thread.

It is an excellent summary of why things are unfolding as they are.

Although it is obvious that World War III is the intended outcome to defend the petrodollar,

I do not think things are unfolding according to the original New World order plan, many countries have already defected from it, Russia, who kicked the Rothschild bankers out, China, and now Germany who has decided to side with the East, are building a very powerful alliance against the Western banking cartel.

I still say that every intelligence agency on the planet is fully aware of the contents of this video, and knows full well that all they have to do is sit back, and watch while the Western world implodes.

This is why ISIS and the puppet Kiev government were created by the CIA and Blackwater, to give the rest of the world something to fight for, and yet despite this, it's not working. No one, and I mean no one is willfully aligning themselves with Obama, and the Western banking cartel.

Although things are obviously going to get quite nasty for the residents of the United States, and most of Western Europe, I think they will simply be hung out to dry by the rest of the world,

from their perspective (the rest of the world), World War III is completely unnecessary.

If you pay attention,

Obama, the Senate, and Congress, are the only entities on the planet demanding war.

Fortunately, they no longer have their own military under their control, even the Pentagon would prefer to sit this one out, besides, they are currently preparing for civil war within America.

This video goes a long way towards dispelling the misinformation we are being fed by the mainstream news outlets every day.

Thank you for posting it to its own thread.

Sandy Hook a FEMA Capstone event--more misinfo . . .

"The FBI Report on Sandy Hook

The FBI has now released its report about Sandy Hook, which has been so massively redacted that it looks worse than a chunk of Swiss cheese. As Wolfgang has asked, “What does the FBI have to hide about Sandy Hook?” Barack Obama said he would utilize the full resources of the federal government to determine what happened there. Wolf wanted to know so he could apprise other school districts of how to avoid a replication at their schools. This is simply obscene:
<img class="aligncenter" alt="Redacted FBI report on Sandy Hook" src="" width="610" height="400" />

As Dave Altimari has reported in The Hartford Courant, “Of the 175 pages released in response to a Courant Freedom of Information request, 64 were completely redacted and most of the other 111 pages were heavily redacted.” If the official account of a single demented shooter taking out 20 children and 6 adults on 14 December 2012 were true, there would be nothing to redact. He came, he shot, he died. There should be no more to it than that."

As the bloggers/investigators of Sandy Hook keeps the FBI busy trying to quelch the truth, it prevents them from assembling new false flags.

Same with discussions of 9/11 truth, Boston Marathon truth, Malaysian airline truth, and on and on.

The power elites didn't think people would stay on task long enough to flush out all the fraudulence committed by our alphabet agencies.

Just an observation...

...but I see that CNBS has the Gold ticker @ $1,227.40 ~ DOWN $8.50, and Silver showing, $18.55 ~ DOWN 0.179.

Meanwhile, Kitco and others have the prices the same, but as ADVANCES from the previous day's trading, i.e. AU up $3.30, and AG up $0.03.

Is this deliberate on the part of CNBS?

Sep 18, 2014 - 2:43pm


CNBS always uses prices compared to the previous day's Comex close. Kitco uses the Globex close as its basis. Yesterday, price fell almost $13 between the two closes.

Hard to start World War 3 without the military, or an enemy:


“I’d say most of the troops do not support the president.”


According to former U.S. Navy SEAL Carl Higbie, over 90 percent of troops disapprove of President Barack Obama. Higbie made the comments to “On The Record” host Greta Van Susteren Wednesday.

“Effective today, the president? A photo-op? or something in between?” Susteren asked.

“Photo-op. Complete photo-op. This indicative of a global failure of his foreign policy,” Higbie explained. “He has toted that he is behind the troops before and he stands in front of these guys, gets a photo-op, everything like that, while saying he’s going to send 3,000 guys to combat Ebola, but I’m not going to send any to combat an actual enemy that’s really threatening America.”

“What do you think they think? I mean, I suppose it’s kind of a mixed bag?” Susteren pressed.

“I’d say most of the troops,” Higbie replied. “Probably over 90 percent, do not support the president.”

We are just getting ready for the bubble to pop…


Says Twitter in particular is grossly overvalued

The Federal Reserve Wednesday reassured investors that it will hold interest rates near zero for a “considerable time” after it ends the bond-buying program known as quantitative easing in October. In response, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at a new record high.

Former Director of the Office of Management and Budget and author of the book, The Great Deformation, David Stockman, has significant concerns about that very policy.

“I’m worried… that we’ve got the greatest bubble created by a central bank in human history,” he told Yahoo Finance.

Every time a bogeyman fails, they bring out a new one:


Group kept under wraps until now adds new dimension to war on terror


Mike Morell, a former deputy director of the CIA, told CBS News there is a terror group that poses a more serious and direct threat to America than ISIS.

“Khorasan members came from Pakistan,” Morell told the corporate media news network. “They focus on attacks in the West.”

Morell said the terrorist group known until recently only to the government is focused on threats to aviation. The group believes “if they damage the airlines they can damage the American economy, as we saw with 9/11,” Morell explained.

“Unlike ISIS, which is believed at present to be largely engulfed in its fight for territory. Khorasan is developing fresh plots to target U.S. aviation, and it’s trying to recruit Westerners who have flocked to the fight in Syria, some of whom have joined the al Qaeda franchise in the country, known as the al-Nusra Front… The fear is that U.S. and European passport holders could more easily smuggle explosives onto airplanes.”

The al-Nusra Front has pledged allegiance to ISIS.

CBS reports Khorasan is especially dangerous because it supposedly has access to AQAP, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, and its alleged master bomb maker.

As we noted in August as the hyped ISIS threat began to pick up steam, al-Qaeda’s purported mastery with explosives is primarily the stuff of myth. From Faisal Shahzad and the Times Square plot to the pathetic attempt to blow up Northwest Airlines 253 by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, al-Qaeda’s track record is at best dismal.

Ibrahim al-Asiri, a Saudi with a murky background, is said to be al-Qaeda’s bomb maker. He allegedly made the bombs discovered on cargo planes in Dubai. That bungled plot and the Northwest Airlines 253 caper were reportedly the work of Anwar al-Awlaki, the former FBI operative who dined at the Pentagon just months after 9/11.

CIA boss John Brennan recently told CBS that U.S. officials were “doing what we can” to track al-Asiri down and said his “time will come.”

Perfect Timing

The question is why did the government conceal the supposed Khorasan threat to aviation after Obama’s ISIS war speech and after weeks of hyperventilating about the terror threat by the establishment media and neocon members of Congress.

Only the United States government and its intelligence agencies are aware of Khorasan and they have not provided evidence to verify that it and a threat to aviation actually exist.

The unsubstantiated Khorasan threat is perfectly timed to coincide with the ISIS threat. It will be used as a multiplier as the United States and soon the United Nations and NATO ramp up for the ISIS war.
