Due to a lot of work that needs to be done & upcoming events (incl. visitors) I’ll be presenting the news to you in the following way up until around Dec. 4.

This way you’ll still get fully updated, whilst I save many, many, many hours of work on the website.

- Ukraine Admits Its Gold Is Gone: “There Is Almost No Gold Left In The Central Bank Vault”:

Back in March we reported of a strange incident that took place just after the Ukraine presidential coup, namely that according to at least one source, “in a mysterious operation under the cover of night, Ukraine’s gold reserves were promptly loaded onboard an unmarked plane, which subsequently took the gold to the US.”  Needless to say there was no official confirmation of any of this taking place, and in fact our report, in which we mused if the “price of Ukraine’s liberation” was the handover of its gold to the Fed at a time when Germany was actively seeking to repatriate its own physical gold located at the bedrock of the NY Fed, led to the usual mainstream media mockery. Until now. In an interview on Ukraine TV, none other than the head of the Ukraine Central Bank made the stunning admission that “in the vaults of the central bank there is almost no gold left. There is a small amount of gold bullion left, but it’s just 1% of the gold reserves.”

US President Barack Obama has, for the first time, admitted he would deploy US ground troops to Syria and Iraq to fight Islamic State – that is, if the extremist group obtained a nuclear weapon.

“If we discovered that [Islamic State] had gotten possession of a nuclear weapon, and we had to run an operation to get it out of their hands, then, yes,” Obama told reporters at a news conference in Brisbane, Australia, on Sunday. “I would order it.”

- Putin:’US wants to subdue Russia, but no one did or ever will':

The US has no plans to humiliate Russia, but instead wants to subdue it, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said, adding that no one had ever succeeded in doing so – and never will.

Speaking at a forum of the All-Russia Peoples’ Front in Moscow on Tuesday, the Russian leader said that history was not about to change, and that no one would manage to suppress the country.

Throughout history no one has ever managed to do so toward Russia – and no one ever will,” Putin said.

National Geographic, Nov 17, 2014 (emphasis added): Urchins and cucumbers seemed to have escaped the ill effects of the virus until now. But in recent weeks, reports have started to come in that they too are dying along beaches in the Pacific Northwest, Hewson said… [He and his team are] studying the urchins and sea cucumbers that are already dying to see if the same killer is responsible.

As Kyle Bass once eloquently noted, the brevity of financial memory is about two years; and nowhere is that more clear than in the explosive resurgence of demand for new subprime-mortgage-backed products. As Scotsman Guide reports, some subprime lenders are reporting strong investor appetite for the once-reviled mortgage products (for borrowers with credit scores as low as 500 and with debt-to-income (DTI) ratios as high as 50 percent). “It’s out of control; it seems like there’s 10 times the amount of demand to buy this paper as there are borrowers that want the loans,” said one lender. As Bass may have also said “proceed with caution.”

“Here is one tale of how the Reypothecation might have taken place.

Of course, bankers, being honest, and politicians never lying, mixed with zionist israelis could never meld into planning and executing the biggest heist ever, under the guise of a false Arab terror plot whilst killing 3000 innocent Gentiles , just Gentiles (3000 jews were told not to turn up for work on 9/11) resulting in total surveillance of all the other gentiles on the planet carried out in the main by mossad connected security companies.

Also, isn’t it pure coincidence that the security at the Fukushima plant was also under the control of a mossad connected security firm..

Don’t miss: - http://cryptome.org/eyeball/gold-vault/gold-vault-frbny.htm:

The gold vault in the Federal Reserve Bank New York is reportedly the largest gold depository in the world. Yet compared to other major gold vaults, such as the one at Fort Knox, it appears lightly secured. There are one or two guards at the loading dock which connects to the vault. Because the building is located in a dense urban area, its walls and entrances abut sidewalks without security barriers like those at other bullion depositories. The site of the building slopes such that the topmost levels of fve basements where the vaults are located directly adjoins two streets, albeit there are reinforced concrete walls with steel face plates as well as interior alarm systems protecting the hoard. (See note below on basement levels and wall thicknesses.)

Copies of the original 1922 construction drawings of the facility, publicly available at Avery Architectural Library, Columbia University, were obtained by Cryptome. A floor plan of a vault level is provided below.

- Wholesale Inflation Heats Up Due To Jump In Car, Food Costs, New Calculation Method:

Janet Yellen will be pleased… or not. Producer Price Inflation printed hotter than expected across all its various incarnations (good news, no deflation; bad news, no deflation excuse for The Fed). Ex Food-and-Energy prices rose 1.8% YoY (4-month highs), considerably more than the 1.5% expectations but surged 0.4% MoM – the most in 16 months. PPI Final Demand rose 1.5% YoY (1.3% exp). The rise in PPI appears driven by Food prices which are up 1.0% (the most since April) and Trade PPI (+1.5%) thanks to a 26.1% jump in margins for fuels and lubricants retailing (under new calculation methods) accounted for nearly 40% of the rise in final demand.#

- Hugh Hendry: “I Believe Central Bankers Are Terrified”:

“My premise hasn’t really changed since I published my paper explaining why I had become more constructive towards risk assets this time last year. That is to say, the structural deficiency of global demand continues to radicalise the central banking community. I believe they are terrified: the system is so leveraged and vulnerable to potentially systemic price reversals that the monetary authorities find themselves beholden to long only investors and obliged to support asset prices. However, I clearly confused everyone with my choice of language. What I should have said is that investors are perhaps misconstruing rising equity prices as a traditional bull market spurred on by revenue and earnings growth, and becoming fearful of a reversal, when instead the persistent upwards drift in stock markets is more a reflection of the steady erosion of the soundness of the global monetary system and therefore the rise in stock prices is something that is likely to prevail for some time.”

- Relentless US Journalist who has Seen and Felt the Boot of Israeli Fascism is Returning to Palestine for More:

Journalist Zebula “Sha” Hebert has been “shot at, stabbed, pepper sprayed, maced, tear-gassed, tased, arrested, detained, beaten, and interrogated” while conducting his work.  He knows what repression feels like, which is why he is undertaking a highly ambitious project: in the wake of the recent US-backed Israeli assault, Hebert will return to Palestine and spend a year in Gaza.  He will conduct interviews with Gazans, publish reports, and ultimately write a book about his findings and experiences, all to help amplify the voices of a trapped refugee population being brutalized by the world’s most powerful aggressors.

Hebert conducted an interview with Robert Barsocchini for Washington’s Blog, to elucidate and spread the word about his upcoming journalistic endeavor:

Indonesia’s practice of subjecting would-be female police officers to ‘virginity tests’ is “discriminatory and a form of gender-based violence,” that has to be stopped, Human Rights Watch says.

- ‘RT will soon be banned in Germany too’: Russian FM jokes at media conference:

The Russian FM known for his impeccable diplomatic skills, brightened the mood of the media conference held in Moscow after meeting with the German foreign minister. Both diplomats chuckled at the joke that was addressed to RT.

- Kissinger Warns “We Need A New World Order”; Ukraine Should Forget Crimea & NATO:

Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger says in an interview with Der Spiegel that there currently is an urgent need for a new world order, but its coming into being will be long and complicated. “There is the Chinese view, the Islamic view, the Western view and, to some extent, the Russian view. And they really are not always compatible,” he warns, adding that introducing anti-Russian sanctions was a mistake. He added that Ukraine should not hope to become a member of NATO in the foreseeable future, as the alliance will never vote unanimously for the accession of Ukraine.

Lawsuit comes just one day after supporters of GMO planting ban in Hawaii filed a motion of their own with local courts seeking “transparency and proper implementation” of the moratorium approved by voters on Election Day

Alongside other plaintiffs, two of the world’s most powerful agrochemical companies, Monsanto and Dow Chemical, filed suit against Maui County in Hawaii on Thursday, less than two weeks after voters there approved a moratorium on the planting and cultivation of genetically-modified crops within the boundaries of their communities.

- Monsanto settles GMO wheat dispute with Northwest farmers for $2.4 million (OregonLive/AP, Nov 12, 2014):

Monsanto Co. said Wednesday it will pay nearly $2.4 million to settle a dispute with Northwest farmers over genetically modified wheat.

No genetically engineered wheat has been approved for U.S. farming, but it was found in Oregon in 2013.

That discovery prompted Japan and South Korea to temporarily suspend some wheat orders, and the European Union called for more rigorous testing of U.S. shipments. Continue reading »

A potato genetically engineered to reduce the amounts of a potentially harmful ingredient in French fries and potato chips has been approved for commercial planting, the Department of Agriculture announced on Friday.

The potato’s DNA has been altered so that less of a chemical called acrylamide, which is suspected of causing cancer in people, is produced when the potato is fried.

The new potato also resists bruising, a characteristic long sought by potato growers and processors for financial reasons. Potatoes bruised during harvesting, shipping or storage can lose value or become unusable. Continue reading »

- Former Pro-GMO Biotech Scientist Admits GMOs Aren’t Safe, Refutes Claims by Monsanto (Nation of Change, Nov 1, 2014):

The GMO debate will likely never rest. Therefore, we need more GMO whistleblowers to open people’s eyes about the real dangers of genetically modified foods and crops.

For how long will we need to go back and forth in this GMO battle before a sound conclusion is finally met? If you have been following the GMO debate at all, you probably realize that this issue will likely never rest, as numerous studies on both sides of the spectrum (one side showing safety and the other showing danger) will continue to surface. What’s more, this research as well as opinions will be born out of lies or false substantiation. You’ve likely read headlines like these lately and scoffed: Continue reading »

It is not the consumer that should be afraid of the costs …

” If you put a label on genetically engineered food you might as well put a skull and crossbones on it.”
- Norman Braksick, president of Asgrow Seed Co., a subsidiary of Monsanto, quoted in the Kansas City Star, March 7, 1994

Exactly right!


- GMO Labeling Will Cost Less than a Penny a Day for U.S. Consumers (Sustainable Pulse, Oct 6, 2014):

A new analysis commissioned by Consumers Union, the policy arm of Consumer Reports, and conducted by the independent Portland-based economic research firm, ECONorthwest, found from a review of published research that the median cost to consumers of requiring labeling of genetically engineered food, also known as genetically modified (or GMO) food, is $2.30 per person annually. The report is available online now here.

Executive Summary of Full Report

“That’s less than a penny a day for each consumer — a tiny fraction of the cost estimates put out by industry and certainly a very small price to pay for consumers’ right to know if their food has been genetically engineered,” said Jean Halloran, Director of Food Policy Initiatives at Consumers Union.

- Monsanto’s ‘zombie wheat’ case reveals serious legal vulnerabilities in business model (Natural News, Oct 6, 2014):

Monsanto’s business model is falling apart right in front of their own face, because the biotech firm blatantly disrespects the property rights of farmers, contaminating their fields with unauthorized genetically modified seeds. These unapproved GMO seeds inevitably cross-contaminate farmers’ fields, effectively destroying their yields. That’s exactly what happened in Oregon last year when some unauthorized “zombie wheat” from the Monsanto Company went from the lab and intermixed with a farmer’s natural wheat. The debacle disrupted wheat exports as Japan and South Korea blocked shipments. A contingency of farmers have joined forces and sued Monsanto.

Monsanto may finally admit to cross-contaminating farmers’ wheat

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) today announced that experimental genetically engineered (GE) wheat was discovered in July, 2014 at a  Montana research facility that has not legally grown the variety since 2003.

“Once again, USDA and the biotech industry have put farmers and the food supply at risk,” said Andrew Kimbrell, executive director for Center for Food Safety. “Coexistence between GE and non-GE crops is a failed policy that fundamentally cannot work. Genetic contamination is a serious threat to farmers across the country.” Continue reading »

Scientists allege deadly diseases such as Ebola and AIDS are bio weapons being tested on Africans

- ‘Dark zones’ in GMO technology research allow secret development of deadly bioweapons (Natural News, Sep 29, 2014):

New evidence has emerged to suggest that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are a key factor in the spread of deadly pathogens like Ebola. The current Ebola outbreak appears to be a direct product of what former Soviet microbiologist Dr. Ken Alibekov calls “dark zones” in GMO technology that allow pathogens to be deliberately weaponized to harm humans.

Dating back to the 1970s, the U.S. government has been involved in covert bioweaponry programs that involved deliberately creating “AIDS-like viruses” to be used during warfare, according to a prominent professor of plant pathology. One such virus is Ebola, a manufactured bioweapon patented and owned by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the vaccine license rights of which are owned by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The CDC patent for Ebola can be viewed here:
Google.com.

Dr. Cyril Broderick, formerly of the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry but now teaching at Delaware State University, cites Dr. Leonard Horowitz’s book Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola — Nature, Accident or Intentional? to make the claim that the U.S. government has actually been testing its manufactured bioweapons on Africans for many decades, under the guise of promoting vaccines and “public health.”

- Trading giant Cargill sues Syngenta over lost profits due to unapproved GM corn (Natural News, Sep 23, 2014):

Cargill is a vast USA-based agribusiness with a multinational empire that dominates the food industry in exporting grains, producing food additives and providing processed food products to McDonalds.

Cargill is in the food-trading business purely for control and profit, and they are pro-GMO, of course. Nutritional quality is of no concern. But they don’t like it when their export sales are spoiled by a GMO company’s effort to insert their corn product into a large shipment exported by Cargill to China, a nation that hasn’t approved it.

The corn was from Syngenta’s Agrisure Viptera (MIR162) seed, which was approved for cultivation in the United States in 2010. But the Chinese government had not approved this genetic strain. Earlier, China had declared GMOs safe and acceptable and became the target of GMO producers and grain traders, especially Cargill.

- Kiss Your Grass-Fed Beef Goodbye! GMO Grass About to Be Approved (Natural Society, Sep 18, 2014):

RoundUp-Ready Kentucky Bluegrass begins field trials

While many of us rely on grass-fed beef as a source of healthful, properly raised meat, that option of healthy eating may just move down a peg. Why? Not because cattle may have to switch to GM grain, but rather because cattle may be forced to indulge in genetically modified grass.

The Scotts ‘Miracle-Gro’ Company which created genetically modified RoundUp-Ready Kentucky Bluegrass has announced that it will conduct field trials at the homes of Scotts’ employees. What’s more, they can do so without any government oversight because there are no laws that prohibit or limit the planting of GMO grass. Continue reading »

- 37 lies Americans tell themselves to avoid confronting reality (Natural news, Sep 7, 2014):

Have you noticed the incredible detachment from reality exhibited by the masses these days? The continued operation of modern society, it seems, depends on people making sure they don’t acknowledge reality (or try to deal with it). “Denial” is what keeps every sector of civilization humming along: medicine, finance, government, agriculture and more.

The trouble with the denial approach is that eventually the lies collide with reality. Until that day comes, however, happy-go-lucky Americans are merrily enjoying their courtship with self delusion, repeating the following 37 lies to themselves as if they were true: Continue reading »

Germany’s top supermarkets, the powerhouses of Europe when it comes to retail, have delivered a blow to the biotech industry by forcing the German poultry industry to return to the use of non-GMO feed.

It was announced last Thursday that the German supermarkets, with a broad consensus, recently demanded from the German Poultry Association (ZDG) to stop using GMO feed for both egg and poultry meat production, starting from January 1st 2015. That is the date when the retailers want to receive GMO-free fed products again, meaning poultry suppliers will have to rush to get their feed supply chains free from GMO feed once more.

- Mexican Judge Departs From Script, Turns Monsanto’s Mexican Dream Into Legal Nightmare (Wolf Street, Sep 1, 2014):

The U.S. agribusiness giant Monsanto is long accustomed to getting its own way. Through a combination of back-channel lobbying, opaque political funding and revolving-door politics, the multinational agrochemical and biotechnology corporation has subverted, corrupted and infiltrated the elected governments of countries around the world, from the smallest and poorest to the biggest and richest.

However, if recent events in Europe and Latin America are any indication, the tide may well be subtly turning against the interests of Monsanto and its fellow GMO oligopolies and in the favor of independent food growers and consumers. Despite their tireless lobbying efforts in Brussels, the “Big Six” (Monsanto, Du Pont Pioneer, Syngenta, Vilmorin, Winfield and KWS) continue to hit a brick wall of resistance in many of Europe’s biggest markets, including Germany and France. As I reported in April this year, popular resistance is on the rise across Latin America, as indigenous and peasant communities rise up against government legislation that would apply brutally rigid intellectual copyright laws to the crop seeds they are able to grow.

- UK Supermarkets Told to Wake Up to GMO Environmental Damage (Sustainable Pulse,Aug 27, 2014):

GeneWatch UK called on supermarkets Wednesday to wake up to the environmental harm caused by genetically modified (GM) animal feed, imported from North and South America. Blanket spraying of Monsanto’s RoundUp Ready GM crops with the weedkiller RoundUp has destroyed the habitat of the Monarch butterfly in the United States to such an extent that a petition was filed yesterday seeking endangered species protection for the butterfly, which has declined more than 90 percent in under 20 years.

“Supermarkets should act now to secure GM-free-fed meat, milk and eggs for all their customers” said Dr Helen Wallace, Director of GeneWatch UK, “They must help to save the Monarch butterfly and protect other wildlife habitats from being destroyed by blanket spraying with RoundUp”.
