@Leon The marching band and chowder society of DC think tanks learned nothing from the #Iraq and #Libya experience. Even the BBC joins them with a fictional show that contemplates WWIII with #Russia targeting London for a #nuclear strike. For them, war is first and foremost a profitable racket. #politics #USA #Syria #PeaceMovement http://libertyblitzkrieg.com/2016/10/27/must-read-of-the-day-dennis-kucinich-issues-extraordinary-warning-on-d-c-s-think-tank-warmongers/

@Leon In 1946 (!!), the Nuremberg Tribunal prosecutor said of the German media: "Before every major aggression, they INITIATED A PRESS CAMPAIGN CALCULATED TO WEAKEN THEIR VICTIMS and to prepare the German people psychologically for the attack. In the propaganda system, it was the daily press and the radio that were the most important weapons." #politics #Hillary #Trump #Putin #Russia #Syria #Iraq #Bernays www.strategic-culture.org/news/2016/10/31/inside-invisible-government-war-propaganda-clinton-trump.html

@Leon Former British Ambassador claims that the source of the #Podesta leaks "comes from within Washington." It's an extremely dangerous game, says Craig Murray, and it feeds into a foreign policy that is completely mad. Finally, Murray also believes that the public can't get clear analysis of these issues from MSM, because they are part of the same money/power nexus. #politics #WikiLeaks #FBI #Russia #gold www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-11-02/former-british-ambassador-claims-source-podesta-leaks-comes-within-washington

@newstracker Japan to form $900m investment fund with Russia. The Japan Bank for International Cooperation and the Russian Direct Investment Fund, or RDIF, are each to contribute roughly half to a fund totaling around 100 billion yen ($902 million) for a launch in 2017. Most of that amount will fund projects in such fields as medicine, urban development and upgrades to manufacturing facilities. http://asia.nikkei.com/Politics-Economy/International-Relations/Japan-to-form-900m-investment-fund-with-Russia #Japan #Russia

@Leon @Dan0 @bullionaire - In my view people are giving way too much emphasis on #Trump and his economic announcements, totally missing the time-frame, funding, state indebtedness, #China and Saudi Arabia dumping U.S.bonds on lower prices, global economies in decline and an unchanged geo-political agenda. I'd say even worst, if I see NATO partner #Turkey changing sides towards China's "One belt one road" to Iran, away from the EU and in new alliances with #Russia .. In this context, the referendum in #Italy on Dec 4, state elections in the Netherlands, France and Germany and strong right-wing movements in #Europe are looking like a picnic ;-) #gold #chaos

@Excelsior #Uranium Prices Hit A 12-Year Low Due To Feds And #Clinton Cronies ANDREW FOLLETT – 11/02/2016 “….Uranium prices have been continually falling since the 2011 near meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant, which caused public opinion to turn against #nuclear power. In early 2011, uranium was trading around $70 a pound. Today’s low uranium prices are also partially due to the DOE dumping vast swaths of uranium onto the market to fund its operations, lowering the price enough to harm the U.S. uranium industry. Since 2011, DOE has sold off roughly $1 billion of publicly-owned uranium through private sellers without overseeing the transactions, and research by the Government Accountability Office found DOE did not did not properly value uranium sales or adequately assess any impact on the commercial uranium market. Another major factor is that environmentalists and left-wing politicians have used alleged environmental risks to cripple the #American uranium industry, allowing foreign producers, especially #Kazakhstan and #Russia, to flood the American uranium market. As a result, American uranium mining is on the decline as a result of the extremely strict regulations, with fewer new holes drilled and expenditures for new land, exploration, and drilling declining 22 percent, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). American commercial nuclear reactors doubled their purchases of Kazakhstani uranium in 2014, largely due to the decline in the amount of the American uranium industry. Kazakhstan alone now supplies 23 percent of the uranium for America’s nuclear reactors, according to the EIA…” http://dailycaller.com/2016/11/02/uranium-prices-just-hit-a-12-year-low/

@newstracker #Russia – Russia called the killing of its ambassador to Turkey on Monday “a provocation aimed at disrupting the normalisation” of foreign relations between two countries and the “peace process in Syria”. - Both countries condemned the assassination as an act of terrorism with a Russian delegation set to arrive in Turkey today to work on a joint investigation into Mr Karlov’s death. - Mr Karlov was shot on Monday by a former riot policeman disguised as one of his bodyguards during a photo exhibition at Ankara. - #Turkey remains in a state of emergency following a failed coup in Jul that led to tens of thousands of arrests in the following months.

@MiningBookGuy @Brendan - i'm on board with $ARL.AX (thx @PamplonaTrader!) While I'm still learning more about the nickel-cobalt deposit, I think $ARL.AX has an opportunity to do a new study that focuses on higher-grade cobalt sections. But the real story is "what happens if SHTF in the $DRC?" This is a real concern... same type of concern for #platinum in #SouthAfrica, #palladium in #Russia. Take note that $SBGL was shrewd and bought $SWC BEFORE massive disruption. IF something goes wrong in #DRC, I think it's natural to look for SCALE in SAFE jurisdictions...not tiny, high-grade #cobalt plays. There's real grand-slam potential here because of #geopolitics. $ARL.AX is going to get more attention. Anyway, I'm on board with that part of the story. But $ARL.ax is intriguing for other reasons @PamplonaTrader brought up. Keep in mind they have an advanced #gold #zinc project and early stage nickel exploration, all in #Australia. Basically, 'going beyond cobalt', $ARL.AX is intriguing for many reasons. But the cobalt aspect (and ridiculous valuation) pulled me in

@Leon Reading the attached article from Glenn Greenwald one gets the impression that U.S. #politics just endlessly replays the same debates, conflicts, and tactics. Two vital points stand out here: 1) the key to sustain fears over foreign adversaries is depicting them as all-powerful and ubiquitous; and 2) once that images takes root, few will be willing to question the propaganda for fear of beinng accused of siding with the Foreign Evil. #Russia #Trump https://theintercept.com/2017/02/23/the-increasingly-unhinged-russia-rhetoric-comes-from-a-long-standing-u-s-playbook/

@Leon London-based bullion broker Sharps Pixley, formerly owned by Deutsche Bank, has suggested that #Russia's #gold reserves could overtake #China's by the end of this year. Here's the final takeaway: "..both China and Russia see gold as an important element in the global financial system. China has reportedly called for gold to be included in the basket of currencies which makes up the #IMF's Special Drawing Rights (SDR). Certainly Russia's President Putin is a gold believer. The Chinese hierarchy is perhaps a little more circumspect in its open support for gold, but both nations are keen to see the US #dollar dominance of world trade - particularly with respect to #oil and #gas - depleted and see gold as one of the tools for helping them achieve this objective." www.sharpspixley.com/articles/lawrie-williams-russias-gold-reserves-could-overtake-chinas-this-year_264838.html

@Goldfinger You can see how quickly the Russian state mobilizes, very powerful police force and secret police forces and they are aggressive. Very much unlike Middle Eastern countries which saw revolutions after Arab Spring. People quickly overwhelmed unmotivated police and military in Egypt for example, only die hard regime members kept fighting when it was clear the will of the people was behind the revolt. Also US had strong influence in Egypt. US has little influence in $Russia and Putin has a strong and numerous base.
