Rex

Been waiting for a confirmation from someone that wants to bull de trigger will see them on sunday so might put in an order on monday. the way it is shaping up the no brainer would be lowest premium coins, my deviation in to semi numis was in case the rise took years and i would have to rely on premiums. Might just grab some more skippy's. What is your take Sparticus, is this the final push up??? I did think about setting up a trading account and start charting the junior miners but i dont have enough funds on hand.

@ Putin..

The easy Scratch to be made is with the Futures!

You will definitely know if it's "the final push up" if the 1240-1280 band now can be maintained at least for a week.

In the meantime, just pay attention to the Moneyflows and pay attention to, and play the Tide Marks!

It's really not all that difficult when you get right down to it.

Cheers,

A Nobel prize winning

A Nobel prize winning economist, former chief economist and senior vice president of the World Bank, and chairman of the President’s council of economic advisers (Joseph Stiglitz) says that the International Monetary Fund and World Bank loan money to third world countries as a way to force them to open up their markets and resources for looting by the West. Do central banks do something similar? https://www.washingtonsblog.com/2016/02/central-banks-trojan-horses-loot...

Meanderings

Negative interest rates needs a ban/tax on cash - or bank runs ensue as folk put currency under mattresses.

Aha! but we could buy physical gold and Silver instead... and the banking system will collapse as folk take currency out of the banking system and comex defaults - do you NOT think that they will impose a massive capital gain tax on precious metals... thus making them a liability?

Their whole meme is to fleece the sheeple. Why would they leave an escape route which would simultaneously break them?

I do notice that there appears to be a "mood shift" by certain "media" - gold lines around the block in London (yet no pics) Telegraph.... banks saying to own Gold as hedge against loss of faith in central banks... Coincidences? When THEY CONTROL the message completely!

Are they steering the sheeple into the Gold pen...pushing the prices UP so that they can offload their physical before the hammer comes down?

DAVOS has just finished... Japan said no way NIRP before and straight after...NIRP is implemented...I do wonder what else was said... They know the system is collapsing.

All feedback welcome.

MiG-23 fighter shot down over Libya's Benghazi

A MiG-23 fighter of Libya's internationally recognised government was shot down Friday as it carried out air strikes on opposition positions in the coastal city of Benghazi, the military said.

Nasser el-Hassi, spokesman for the government's forces, told AFP the plane was "shot down in Qaryunes, northwest Benghazi, as it bombed positions of the (Mujahedeen) Shura Council", a coalition of Islamist militias close to Al-Qaeda.

The Islamic State (IS) jihadist group claimed its fighters downed the plane, according to SITE Intelligence Group, a US monitor of jihadist activity on the Internet.

Syrian army intends move into IS stronghold of Raqqa province

BEIRUT, Feb 13 (Reuters) - The Syrian army intends to advance into Islamic State-held Raqqa province having captured positions at the provincial border of the jihadists' stronghold, a Syrian military source said on Saturday.

A move into Raqqa province would reestablish a foothold for Damascus in a region where it has had no presence since August 2014, and complicate any attempt by Saudi Arabia to send ground forces to the area to fight Islamic State.

The military source who was briefed on the matter said the operation had been going on for a number days. The army had captured several positions from Islamic State at the provincial border between Hama and Raqqa in the last two days.

"It is an indication of the direction of coming operations towards Raqqa. In general, the Raqqa front is open ... starting in the direction of the Tabqa area," the source said. Tabqa is the location of an air base captured by Islamic State in 2014.

The army had moved to within 35 km (20 miles) of the base.

Turkey Shelling into Syria

https://www.superstation95.com/index.php/world/886

I can't find anyone else reporting this, so this site "SuperStation95" may just be providing us with the 2016 version of Orsen Wells' "War of the Worlds".

UPDATE: 12:10 PM EST -- Turkish Official boldly declares "major escalation will take place in Syria within 24 hours."

UPDATE: 12:32 PM EST -- Turkish warplanes are flying on the Turkey side of the Turkey/Syria Border, fast and low. Russian warplanes are flying on the Syrian side of the Turkey/Syria border. If any single one of these pilots flies across -- or fires across - the border, all hell is going break lose TODAY.

UPDATE 12:50 PM EST -- Kuwait caught moving troops and war gear into Turkey! A Kuwaiti Air Force C-17 Globemaster, no identification tracking, on final approach to IST Ataturk 5/23runway:

Updates 1:30 PM EST --YPG still is moving south of Azaz, Syria towards the town of Tel Rifat. This offensive appears coordinated with Russian Air Force.

BREAKING: Heavy clashes outside Tel Rifaat between YPG/SDF and Turkish backed jihadists!

Source in Efrin says they are OUTSIDE Tel Rifaat but offensive launched to retake it. Heavy clashes ongoing!

37 air raids at least by Russian Air Force on Til Rifaat today, now YPG/SDF will try to take it. It's been held by jihadists for long time.

URGENT: 1:56 PM Eastern US Time, 13 February 2016 --- Stratfor is now confirming Russia has dispatched a ship to the Mediterranean, to deliver NUCLEAR-TIPPED CRUISE MISSILES.

UPDATE 2:03 PM Eastern US Time -- Syrian Forces Commander Abu Omar told Russian news outlet "Sputnick" via electronic interview "Turkey is attacking us with mortars and rockets across the border. If the attacks continue, we will respond" https://haber.sol.org.tr/dunya/afp-turkiye-ypg-ussunu-top-atesiyle-vurdu-145795

UPDATE 2:34 PM Eastern US Time -- In an utterly UNPRECEDENTED move, Turkey has begun notifying NEWS AGENCIES (Like Ours) to make certain we are at worked and properly staffed tomorrow because there will be very big news and a huge escalation in Syria. This is amazing to us; governments don't do this sort of thing. They aren't saying exactly what will happen but the thought is a major air offensive with the Saudis ahead of ground troops. Some pathfinder forces are already on the ground in Syria

UPDATE 2:41 PM Eastern US Time -- Turkey is closing major roads near Syrian border and hospitals are being cleared.

URGENT UPDATE: 2:45 PM Eastern US Time -- UK military members told to cancel all plans and all leave, prepare for deployment to Syria!

UPDATE 2:49 PM Eastern US Time -- Turkish Military Artillery Forces have just begun yet another barrage of artillery fire into Syria; this one is directly targeting the Syrian Arab Army and is a direct attack upon the lawful government of Syria -- Turkey is now levying war upon Syria. Turkey attacked first. Turkey cannot expect to be able to invoke NATO Article 5 because Turkey attacked first.

Update 2:58 PM Eastern US Time -- An entire FLEET of Russian Antonov-124 cargo planes (the largest cargo planes in the world) have begun arriving in Syria carrying Russian Tanks, Nuclear-tipped artillery shells and other major warfighting gear. Within the last 90 minutes, TWO of these massive cargo aircraft have landed and began unloading. Other Antoniv's can be seen circling under the watchful eye of Russian warplanes as shown below:

UPDATE 3:17 PM Eastern US Time 13 February 2016 -- Russian Air Force Strategic Bomber/Tanker HF Voice Net "BALANS" Heavily Active with numerous fighter jets arranging re-fueling on their trip from northwestern Russia to Syria. NUMEROUS NUMEROUS Russian Fighter Jets in the air enroute to Syria right now

UPDATE 3:20 PM Eastern US Time -- THIRD Antoniv-124 Cargo Jet landing in Syria . . . many more circling or enroute to supply Russian Military Forces again what is now believed to be IMMINENT ATTACK By Saudi Arabia, Turkey and others. War likely to start by Tomorrow, Sunday, 14 February 2016 . . . . . . . . .

UPDATE 3:40 PM Eastern US Time --- Turkish artillery in Hayat, Turkey is targeting Syrian Arab Army positions near #Latakia. Syria. This is an additional line of attack by Turkey, directly against the lawful army of the duly-elected government of Syria. Turkey and Syria are now in a de facto state of war.

UPDATE 3:45 PM Eastern US Time -- FLASH: Turkish artillery has begun hitting Syrian Army positions in northern #Syria

UPDATE 3:51 PM Eastern US Time -- Turkish Foreign Minister Davutoglu says "Syrian Kurdish militia must withdraw from area around Azaz in northern Syria." (Did you get that? The TURKISH foreign minister is telling certain people in ANOTHER COUNTRY, that they must leave their country because TURKEY says so! What balls!)

UPDATE 4:01 PM Eastern US Time -- The Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia has told CNN "Assad will leave — have no doubt about it. He will either leave by a political process or he will be removed by force." (Did you get that? The foreign minister of SAUDI ARABIA is deciding who can be the duly-elected President of ANOTHER COUNTRY, Syria!! What Balls!)

UPDATE 4:25 PM Eastern US Time -- SuperStation95 has consulted with military experts who told us "Turkey is ready to deploy some 18,000 troops with substantial artillery and air support to occupy a 30-kilometer deep territory across the border running from the city of Jarabulus westward to the city of Azaz. The operation would cover an area under ISIS control, and it would provide a direct military assistance to terrorists and facilitate establishing of a buffer zone for the vestiges of their forces in Northern Syria. It would drastically escalate the tensions with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the predominantly Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). However, the Turkish military is fully capable of completing the first move aimed to push the SAA and the SDF from the aforementioned area and occupy a significant part of Northern Syria.

This step will likely face a hard answer of the Russian military grouping located in the country. The Russian land and navy air-defense systems and fighter jets are fully capable to neutralize the Turkish air force which will allow the Syrian government to counter-attack the Turkish intervention forces. Thus, the anti-terrorist forces will get a chance to exercise a counter-attack which will be likely supported by the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces."

 UPDATE 4:43 PM Eastern US Time -- Turkey has now opened fire with artillery against FOUR separate Geographic zones inside Syria.

UPDATE 4:50 PM Eastern US Time -- Qatar-i warplanes Have arrived with Saudi Arabia warplanes at Incirlik Airbase in Turkey -- Air Attacks upon Syria deemed "Imminent"

UPDATE 4:53 PM Eastern US Time -- Russia has increased the Alert Level for its entire military.

UPDATE 5:00 PM Eastern US Time -- Turkish Artillery is shelling Deir Jamal, Syria and Malikiyah, Syria

Funny how thing change

Refugee crisis! Where is the UN - forming green zone in Syria - tents and aid! But NOOOO bring em to Europe to create havoc to get the peeps to demand something be done in Syria... militarily.

Where is the condemnation from the WEST of increased aggression in Syria. Sanctions against Turkey and Saudi and Qatar?

Russia was invited into Syria by democratically elected leader to restore peace. Everyone else is a terrorist.

What pisses me the most... They used to at least pretend to have justification on their side.. this is just blatant bullshit.

I can only give my support to Russia right now.

Iskander missile system hits training target at 300 km distance

Troops of the Southern Military District, some units of the Airborne Force and military transport aviation have been taking part in a surprise combat readiness check since Monday morning

Iskander missile

MOSCOW, February 12. /TASS/. An Iskander-M tactical missile system has successfully hit a ground training target at a distance of 300 km in a surprise combat readiness check of Russia’s Southern Military District, the Defense Ministry reported on Friday.

"A tactical missile of the Iskander-M system was live-fired in a surprise combat readiness check of troops in the Southern Military District at the Kapustin Yar practice range [in the Astrakhan region]," the Defense Ministry’s press office said.

"Combat teams successfully hit the ground training target at a distance of up to 300 km," the press office said.

How far is Turkey from Russia? More than 300 km from Crimea.

All happening

It will take a very small amount of prodding to enrage the bear. Putin has had months to work on his response to resistance to outside aggression. He should be able to move rapidly in to action. The west needs their excuse to kill the dollar as it is in its final throes, so a major squirmish in ME might just do it. All rhetoric has pointed to this conclusion Clif High had an alarming web bot report, and once you understand how it works you can see that it may well be an accurate tool to go by. Andy Hoffmans latest is dire, so there are plenty of supporting circumstantial views to add to the mix. 

The sudden swing toward pro-gold is a bit of a concern, i agree, but every day in this crazy world brings something strange to the table. The only way we will have any idea as to what iis happening will be hindsight HA HA.

Putin, Obama discuss Syria in phone call: Kremlin

Russia's President Vladimir Putin and US counterpart Barack Obama held frank talks on Syria amid US concern over Turkish shelling of Kurdish militia targets in northern Syria days before a ceasefire deal is due to take hold.

Putin took the call from Obama and both sides "gave a positive evaluation" of the results of talks in Munich last week, according to a Kremlin statement, which called the exchange "frank and business-like".

Moscow this week warned against any ground intervention in Syria, as Ankara mulls a ground assault with Saudi troops while shelling positions of the Syrian regime and Kurds, whom Moscow supports.

Saudi troop deployment in Syria up to US-led coalition

RIYADH, Feb 14 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia said on Sunday that any move to deploy Saudi special forces into Syria would depend on a decision by the U.S.-led coalition fighting Islamic State insurgents.

U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Friday he expected both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to send special operations forces to Syria to help local opposition fighters in their campaign to retake the city of Raqqa, Islamic State's de facto capital in Syria.

"The Kingdom's readiness to provide special forces to any ground operations in Syria is linked to a decision to have a ground component to this coalition against Daesh (Islamic State) in Syria - this U.S.-led coalition - so the timing is not up to us," Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told a news conference with his Swiss counterpart in Riyadh.

"With regards to timing of the mission or size of troops, this has yet to be worked out," he added.

@Hammer - Awesome article!

Were you in a hurry today? Not even a highlight or description of that article you posted? I could have easily passed along and ignored it, but for some reason, I had to take a look.

I'm glad I did. Thanks for posting it. It gets into what those banking folks are thinking and why. NOT THAT THEY ARE CORRECT ABOUT CREDIT EXPANSION.

Quantitative Easing and the Quantity Theory of Credit

"So the effect of bank credit depends on its quantity and quality — the latter defined by whether it is used for unproductive transactions (credit for consumption or asset transactions, producing unsustainable consumer or asset inflation, respectively) or productive transactions (delivering non-inflationary growth). Credit used for productive transactions aims at income growth and is sustainable; credit for asset transactions aims at capital gains and is unsustainable. When credit creation slows after an asset bubble driven by credit for asset transactions, the ensuing fall in asset prices, capital losses and non-performing loans can easily trigger a banking crisis (banks have less than 10 per cent of equity; a drop of their asset values by little more than 10 per cent implies bank insolvency)."

More on Syria & Turkey

Can't verify if all these updates are legit, but I have seen other sites stating similar events.

Feb 14 More Fighting (from NY SuperStation95)

UPDATE 3:39 PM Eastern US Time -- Breaking: A member of the Turkish Regular Army Special Forces, embedded with Al-Nusra Jihadist Terror Group, has been captured by #YPG/SDF. Azaz, Rifaat. This is now 100% verification of the widely held suspicion that the government of Turkey has been actively assisting the Jihadist Terrorists. Turkey is now a confirmed "State-Sponsor of Terrorism."
