@ Sparticus

It will continue until it CAN'T.

In the meanwhile, I turned approx 40 processed quail and sausage into a gumbo yesterday and canned 7 quarts of it.

I mostly followed this recipe.

I'm just doing things I enjoy and find real. In some ways I appreciate the mask coming off tyranny.

Fuck Tyrannical Psychopaths.

VT: Editor's note...

"VT Issues First Ebola Warning (Subject to National Security Hack!)


Editor’s note: Veterans Today came under a massive assault from the US Army Signals/Hacker Corps at Ft. Huchuca after this was published.

Only 2 reads, and down the site went. Something on here is very secret. Information on this site is directly sourced from an intelligence agency of a close US ally who is very upset that they have discovered the US involved in something extremely dirty and very dangerous.g

Harvey's Up! (TFMR)

Harvey's Up at TFMR and SilverDoctors Mark O'Byrne (GoldCore):

  • Mark O'Byrne: The lawsuits against banks that alleges they engaged in a secret scheme to manipulate the price of silver bullion is proceeding. Litigation alleging that Deutsche Bank, Bank of Nova Scotia and HSBC Plc illegally fixed the price of silver were centralised in a Manhattan federal court yesterday. The banks have been accused of rigging the price of billions of dollars in silver to the detriment of investors globally. Lawsuits filed by investors since July over the allegations were consolidated yesterday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, following an order issued last Thursday by the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, a special body of federal judges that decides when and where to consolidate related lawsuits. The banks abused their position of controlling the daily silver fix to reap illegitimate profit from trading, hurting other investors in the silver market who use the benchmark in billions of dollars of transactions, according to the suit. Investors claim, the banks unlawfully manipulated silver and silver futures. The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ruled that the cases should be handled by U.S. District Judge Valerie Caproni in Manhattan, who is already overseeing similar litigation over alleged gold price fixing. Three lawsuits were originally filed in Manhattan, and two were filed in Brooklyn. The plaintiffs in the Brooklyn lawsuits had sought to have the litigation consolidated there. The banks had also asked that the litigation be consolidated in Brooklyn, in the Eastern District of New York.
  • Chris Powell: Ambrose Evans-Pritchard says the combined tightening by the United States and China has done its worst. Global liquidity is evaporating.
  • Pratik Parija: Gold imports by India, the largest user after China, probably surged more than fourfold last month on expectations declining prices would boost festival demand. Purchases are estimated at about 95 metric tons compared with 15 tons to 20 tons in September last year, said Bachhraj Bamalwa, a director at the All India Gems & Jewellery Trade Federation. The government raised import taxes for a third time in August last year after a month earlier obliging importers to set aside 20 percent of purchases for re-export as jewelry.
  • GoldCore: The SNB opposes the repatriation issue on the somewhat flimsy grounds that in a dire national emergency foreign holdings could be sold quickly whereas domestic holdings may be tied up. This appears to be disingenuous as many international buyers including the People's Bank of China and other central banks would likely be willing to buy the Swiss gold reserves in loco Switzerland, and then repatriate or take delivery to their own country. Many Swiss look with alarm at the recent German experience, when Germany attempted to have their sovereign gold repatriated from the U.S. Of the 300 tonnes requested it has, to date, received a mere 5 tonnes. Speculation, even among more sober gold analysts, is that the central banks of the world no longer have the gold they claim to have. Some of the gold belonging to the people of the west appears to have been loaned, leased or indeed sold onto the market. This may have been done in an attempt to suppress to gold price and maintain faith in the dollar, euro and other fiat currencies and indeed maintain faith in the fragile monetary and financial system. Much of the physical bullion is now in the very strong hands of store of wealth buyers in India, China and Asia. Other strong hands who have been allocating to gold are Asian and other central banks including Russia's central bank as stealth currency continue. That central banks have likely been involved in manipulating the gold price was confirmed again recently by Alan Greenspan in his recent essay in Foreign Affairs on gold as an invaluable monetary asset where he wrote "[the western central banks] all agreed to an allocation arrangement of who would sell how much, and when..."
  • Bill Holter: Finance is now over 30% of the economy and manufacturing 10% or thereabouts ...farming even less, who could've seen it coming? Derivatives are now about 20 times the size of the global economy and 10 times the size of the equity and debt markets, who could've seen it coming. Mom and Dad both work today and some even more than one job, I'm only 54 years old and really cannot remember ANY of my friend's Moms working except for the school nurse, has something changed? $1.2 trillion of student debt outstanding with an average graduate owing $30,000 ...which cannot be wiped clean in an honest bankruptcy? 50 percent or more of our population living from check to check with no savings at all? Nearly 15 years where 95% of the population's standard of living has decreased because "nonexistent" inflation has grown faster than their paychecks? I've only scratched the surface of the financials above and did not even get into social or public issues. I didn't even get into racial issues either but ask yourself if we are now "more harmonious" between races, religions or even "nationalities" than we were back in the old days ...when we weren't broke? As for social and moral issues, I really shouldn't go there but let me ask a question or two. If an individual has poor morals, should they be trusted at their word? Should an entire country? I think this has been a common question and on a global basis recently. Of course, we also have the largest military by leaps and bounds past the rest of the world combined. Ask the average person if we have used our military wisely, fairly and justly? Can a bankrupt treasury really afford the largest military in the world?
  • Andrew Hoffman: OK, now that said "injury" has been discussed, let's get to the "insult" that is the potential "black swan" of Ebola. Yesterday, news that a nurse caring for the Dallas Ebola patient contracted the disease herself became a media frenzy when CIDRAP or Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy said, "There is scientific evidence Ebola has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles, both near and at a distance from infected patients, which means healthcare workers should be wearing respirators, not facemasks." In other words, it may be capable of airborne transmission. Let's forget for a second that a whopping two people on the entire continent have contracted Ebola, or that respected doctors have spoken emphatically of how low the risks of an Ebola pandemic are. I mean, let's face it. In today's gossip-focused, fear-mongering media world, no good "story" can be wasted - or opportunity to spend taxpayer dollars on spectacle. Thus, yesterday's "quarantining" of a flight at Logan Airport, or highly-publicized Marine "Ebola training exercise." To us, it sounds like a bunch of election-seeking politicians have seen the movie "Contagion" a few too many times - or perhaps, read Steven King's "The Stand."
  • James Wesley Rawles: Consider This Your LAST Wake-Up Call. YouTube shortlink: http: // and No one can say for sure that this really IS your last wake-up call. There might be a couple more, before everything falls apart. The final take-down of America could happen in days, but it could also take months. But, I highly doubt that it will take years. I’m certainly not willing the bet my life – and the lives of those that I care about – on the small chance that the corrupt powers-that-be will keep their gigantic ponzi scheme going for more than another year - if that. Nor am I willing to play games with pandemic disease, or dangerous vaccines. If you knew that your house would fall into the sea at any time between now and a year from now, you wouldn’t sleep another night in the place. You’d move out, immediately. Well, you are facing a situation that is far worse, because when everything visibly begins to tip into the abyss, there won’t be any safe places to go to. You’ll be stuck, at the mercy of the fickle whims of evil oligarchs and thuggish minions. So, if you’ve been sitting on the fence, wondering whether it’s time to take that final move to safety… well …you might want to consider this to be a last wake-up call. Get close to God. Get to a safe place. Have extra food and water. Prepare for the needs of others. If there’s anything left over, buy something of tangible, portable value like silver or gold. And… to quote James Wesley Rawles …proceed with prayer. You cannot lose if you walk with the Lord. I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this. There’s not much time left. A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. – Proverbs 22:3
