This is Bigger than Gold & Silver Manipulation – Chris Powell

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)

Chris Powell, Treasurer and Secretary of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA), says price manipulation of all markets is a major problem the world faces. Powell explains, “This is an issue far bigger than gold and silver. Gold and silver are just minerals, atomic elements. The issue for us is much bigger than that. The issue is free and transparent markets and having an accountable government. You cannot have those things unless you have freely traded monetary metals markets and freely trading currency markets as well. We don’t worship the golden calf or the silver bull. We are pursuing a much more justice oriented agenda here. We want government to tell us what they are doing in the markets. We want them to be open and accountable, and that requires a free and transparent monetary metals market.”

No matter how much financial manipulation is occurring on a global scale, you cannot suppress the outcome of those policies. One of the outcomes is inflation, and yet the new cover of Bloomberg/Newsweek asks the question “Is Inflation Dead?” Powell says, “This is worse than a prediction. It’s a delusion. Inflation is all around us. I don’t know what world the government is living in where they put out monthly reports saying inflation is tame. These people are not paying medical insurance premiums. They are not paying college tuition. They are not paying state taxes. They are not going to the grocery store and seeing prices rise monthly and, of course, they are not noticing the inflation that has manifested itself in the stock market. . . . Inflation is not dead. It’s all around us, and it has been all around us.”

GATA has been trying to get the U.S. government to come clean about massive market manipulations. GATA says they have hit a stone wall of silence. Powell concludes, “Presumably, the U.S. Treasury is secretly trading in any number of markets and refuses to say which markets they are. . . . I heard a U.S. Assistant Attorney move for a Summary Judgement dismissal of our lawsuit saying, without admitting the U.S. government was rigging the markets as we complained in our lawsuit, the U.S. government does claim the power to do what our lawsuit complained of, and that was to secretly rig the markets. I think we have established this now to the satisfaction of any reasonable person . . . . Especially since the CME Group, which operates the major futures exchanges in the United States, has just renewed what it calls its central bank incentive program, which gives enormous volume trading discounts to governments and central banks for surreptitiously trading all the futures markets. . . . So, we know the CME group has created mechanisms for secret trading by the U.S. government and other governments to get discounts in all of the futures trading in the United States.”

In closing, Powell reminds us, “At some point, manipulations do fail . . . . Manipulations only work because of deception.”

Powell contends that global financial powers are trying to suppress inflation through the manipulation of all futures and commodities, but it’s not working.

    The press needs professional liars. If you will not lie for the State, lie for the Feds, lie for the Corporation Churches, they only have use for liars for the slightly news media. You ever notice how the snewz media ignores child trafficking by the State and Church, but covers the child trafficking by the un-affiliated. Its all the same bad actors of officialdom that need the services of liars.

    • paul ...

      Liars from both political Parties don’t see their own contradictions … the Democrats supported ISIS terrorists against the Syrian government … now the Republicans support the 9-11 terrorists (the Saudi’s) against the Yemen government … as Gregory Mannarino says: “Republicans/Democrats are two heads of the same snake with a dark agenda.”!!

  2. Anthony Australia

    Very educational Greg. Thank you.

  3. Uncommon sense

    When the government inflation measures exclude the goods, services and assets that are subject to the most inflation it is no surprise that inflation seems low when looking at the statistics.

    • paul ...

      Uncommon Sense … Inflation measured by the government CPI is 2% (William’s has it at 9%) … until we people demand of our government the moral discipline to finally begin telling the truth to the people … the criminal politicians and banksters will continue their “overt and in our face fraud” upon us … into infinity!! … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cscD9pGGwIU

      • kevin

        Inflation rate for the average person is more like 5%.

    The premise here is if you had a gold standard, then you would have a corruption free government, if not society. Unfortunately, there is no standard other than a Biblical Standard that can ever come close to a perfect government or monetary system. As a secular government today, the U.S. can not do either so I say we are doomed. Better get your bug out shelter ready for SHTF because we are way overdue for the proverbial reset. The president that comes after President Trump will probably be a Gay Man. That is when we get ours.

    • Greg Hunter

      “Fear Not” H and Happy Easter.

    • Uncommon sense

      I suggest that a biblical standard would suffer the same fate as a gold standard: a moral straight jacket that would eventually be cast aside for greater freedom.

    • Nick in UK

      You just replaced a gay president, keep up it’s the worst kept secret ever.
      We even know about it over here !

      Happy Easter to all

    .Greg: I have been a fan of GATA for some time and certainly applaud its efforts for transparency in the PM markets which, unfortunately seems to be anathema to our corrupt government bureaucracies and the criminals they serve at the FED. Thanks to GATA. we are aware of the manipulation, the obfuscated government statistics and the obvious fact that our sovereign gold has been stolen and is long gone. I certainly share CP’s frustration, but there have been recent signs of hope, the foremost of which is the seeming recent failure of COMEX and the ensuing contagion spreading to the LBMA.

    Just waiting for the first major delivery default. It is definitely coming.

    • OutLookingIn

      andyb
      “It is definitely coming”.

      It’s here. Inflating the currency supply eventually comes back and bites you. Hard!
      Case in point:
      Spain requires energy and turns to the US for the best deal, since the US is now an exporter of oil and LNG. Problem being oil is priced worldwide in US dollars. So Spain buys US dollars with euros, in order to pay for the energy. Now those petro- dollars come home to the US, further inflating the currency supply. This is occurring around the globe by those that purchase US oil or LNG. Starting to bite HARD!

  6. Robert E. Salt

    If globalists succeed, the price of precious metals and everything else will be whatever globalists dictate. If banks and countries are hoarding gold, it means they don’t believe the globalists will succeed this time around. When I was a kid I knew what I could buy for a penny. I knew what I could buy for a nickel, and I knew what I could buy for a dime. Kids today don’t even know why coins exist. I remember when a bus or subway ride cost a nickel here in NYC. Now the fare rises faster than I can keep track. I think it’s almost $3 now.

    • iwitness02

      Robert E. Salt,
      That sure brings back memories. I knew what I Could buy for a penny, nickel, and dime.
      On the rare occasion that I had a half dollar, I always got change. I never needed that much, that I would spend the whole half dollar in one visit. Sure is a different world today.

    • paul ...

      Robert … If the globalist neocons succeed in shutting down the flow of oil it will create a huge inflationary spike in the prices for most everything … if they want to keep the price of precious metals down … perhaps the neocons should strike a deal with Iran whereby they stop helping Hezbollah and we stop helping the Saudi’s kill women and children in Yemen!! … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-22/iran-threatens-close-strait-hormuz-if-us-blocks-its-oil-exports

  7. Jerry

    Greg,
    This is one of best interviews you have ever done. Chris Powell hit it out of the park on every point. It is not conspiracy theory when you personally know people who are moving their money off shore to banks in the Bahamas. It is not conspiracy theory when you personally know people who’s sons are being trained for civil unrest in the military. It is not conspiracy theory when the BIS declares gold as money. Chris is right. Some Monday morning, in the not to distant future, the markets will be shut down. The banks will be closed. And martial law will be announced following a presidential broadcast in which we are told that a new financial system is being installed into our governments data base. Can’t happen? Think again. Cyprus was a beta test for just such an event. The truth is they have prepared for this reset multiple times, only to delay it, making the rest of us look like fools, because the banking exchange systems were not compatable . My contact at Wells Fargo confirmed that a few months ago. But guess what? Their persistence has paid off. A new quantum system has been tested and installed, and once again we are at the point of reset. When? Like Chris said. When debt begins to overwhelm the markets. The trigger will be, as Bill Holter has said, when gold can’t be delivered. Slaves like us will work for paper. Global elites want gold.

    • Jerry

      Yes.
      Debt is beginning to overwhelm the markets.
      https://www.fairobserver.com/region/europe/world-economy-crash-collapse-fall-imf-economics-news-today-76903/

      The reset is imminent.

    • OutLookingIn

      Jerry –

      Agree. But what would happen if a new crisis were to occur, before their planned reset was put in place? The US could be forced to impose martial law, in case of a large scale revolt as a result of a full market collapse.
      Many will say won’t happen. Oh really?
      As early as 2006, the US government secured a $400 billion contract with Halliburton to set up internment camps spread over the US. These will be utilized to “house” malcontents and trouble makers. Funny that former vice-President Dick Cheney was CEO of Halliburton between 1995 and 2000. Hmmm…

    Oh my God how flippen naive can you be ……… The Corrupt US media live on through their lies, they make money through lying. How can he say this after what has happened over for example the last 2+ years. Lying for the MSM is part of their religion.

    @realDonaldTrump: “138 people have been killed in Sri Lanka, with more that 600 badly injured, in a terrorist attack on churches and hotels. The United States offers heartfelt condolences to the great people of Sri Lanka. We stand ready to help!”

    The Knights Templar disguised as Muslims again.

    • paul ...

      Tin Foil Hat … It’s nice that the US stands ready to help Sri Lanka … so how about now helping the people being killed by the Saudi terrorists who did 9-11?? … if anti-Semitism is bad … what makes anti-Yemenism good???

      • Greg Hunter

        Yes Paul as long as the Iranians who fund and supply the terrorist Houthi’s can do the same thing. It’s only fair.
        Greg

        • Mohammad

          Greg,

          I do not understand this and I am trying to get my head wrapped around it but I do not get it. I was raised in Damascus where most of my neighbors are christians and Armenians (christians orthodox) we Never had any issue like this crap, we had jews in Damascus and we were trading with them and that is the way I know it all my life up until nineties or so. My mom sent me to a catholic school when I was kindergarten and I remember the nuns with the cross in the play yard, it was an Italian missionary that had a school and a hospital in Damascus.
          This is an intelligence agencies made.

          If the intelligence agencies are able to get to Merkel’s phone and spy on it, if they are able spy on the president himself, if they are able to communicate and spy on every transaction in the world to nail tax evasion, HOW THE HELL THEY CANNOT SPY ON ISIS and get their finance ruined, or are they the financiers?

          My heart is ripped when I read what happened in Sri Lanka, and in Islam those perpetrators are going to hell for what they have done, THIS IS NOT ISLAM ….We condemn that and we are as muslims hurt by those despicable actions, but I can tell you right now, if the powers that control banks and intelligence want really to dry up the resources of those fanatics they would of done it in a blink of an eye, but there is a hidden agenda that uses those maniacs as pawns same goes for the other side killing scores of millions of muslims over the last decades .
          Some one is hell bent on igniting a fire in the world , And I pray to god that this entity is brought to justice. It needs to be exposed first.

          I am praying to the victims and their families may god bless their souls, we as muslims are killed by ISIS as much as those god fearing christians and jews, if you count how many souls they claimed in Syria alone you will be shocked, we are all victims.

        Don’t you ever wonder why only terror attack victims who received compensation from the U.S. government are families of the 9-11 victims?
        https://www.vcf.gov/
        I accept 9-11 is an inside job, I never try to deflect the reponsiblity onto the Knights Templar.

  10. paul ...

    Powell makes an important point …”at some point all manipulations fail as they only work because of deception” … sort of like the President of the US claiming he has the power to declare war against foreign Nations (when under the US Constitution that power only resides in Congress)!!

    • paul ...

      Perhaps a “good deal for the people” of both Israel and Yemen can be made between the US and Iran … where by Trump stops helping the Saudi’s and Iran stops helping Hezbollah … this way women and children are saved at the expense of terrorist instead of the other way around!!

      • Greg Hunter

        Iran should stop funding and supplying the Houthi’s in Yemen.

    Greg: Another excellent interview. I have never heard your guest speak before. I come here for the truth and you both delivered it. No television for me for many, many years now. You couldn’t pay this “old woman” to watch that garbage. Thank you both for all that you do.

  13. D Walter

    Powell seemed fatigued and, frankly, dejected. He actually said that if you are young, then your investment in gold might one day possibly pay off. What if you are older? Should the people over 50 never have bought gold and just held stocks in Facebook and Netflix? This was not a very uplifting or inspiring talk. Powell should be more careful with such statements.

    • Da Yooper

      D Walter

      Powell is likely tired of trying to get to the truth behind the rigging – suppression – capping & manipulation of the metals & all the markets in general. Pure evil is at work here. They are doing everything to keep the dollar the reserve currency because if it is allowed to fall the American public will come after wall street & the US politicians responsible for this fraud & theft from the American public.

    • Edward Ulysses Cate

      How would you expect someone to feel after they’ve spent decades of their life trying to educate people who are not smart enough to even pay attention to gain their own self-defense against financial sociopaths.

      • paul ...

        Edward … it is difficult to even get people to acknowledge that “Clean the Swamp” Trump has hired the “Deep State” CIA Director (Pompeo) as his Secretary of State?? … Pompeo recently boastfully admitted: “We Lied … We Cheated … We Stole” (at his Texas A&M University speech April 15, 2019)!!!

      Powell probably invested more than 20% in PMs. I think I’m likely one of few here who will never complain about the price of gold; be it $1,000 or $30,000/oz.

      • FC

        TFH, I’m with you no complaints about the amount purchased or its price the value is in its freedom.

      Folks – get your “insurance” – no matter what your age! We just had three to four interviews that were paramount – Rickards, Rubino, Holter and now Powell! What a sequence! The imagery that Holter made to a house burning down where the foundation is all that is left was HUGE – gold works in either deflation or inflation. Rickards – what more can be said – pure intellectual process! Rubino – calm in the face of the storm. Just added 3 more ounces of Au! Greg – you are on a roll my friend! I really appreciate you garnering thoughts from the guests on gold as a tier one asset – really good follow up! Bring back Nenner and Pento soon if you can. Happy Easter folks – in Yeshua we follow and try to emulate.

    Leading inflation is housing prices.
    How can a one family house in NYC now be 1 million dollars???
    How can a family pay this high price?
    How can small business afford the high rent prices??
    Why are those in government allowing Banks to sell mortgages to Wall Street???

    Ever since Bill Clinton ended Glass Steagall housing prices have skyrocketed !!!

    Thomas Jefferson:
    If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    • Tin foil hat

      “How can a one family house in NYC now be 1 million dollars???”

      You will get the answer by DuckDuckGo ‘PetroDollar Recycling”. In the late 70’s, Saudis owned many trophy real estates in Manhattan, then the Japanese in the 80’s (PetroDollar Recycling morphed into “Cheap Electronic Goods & Cars Recycling”), then the Russians and Chinese in the late 90’s to present (Corrupt Russian Oligarchs & Chinese Slave Labour Dollar Recycling).

      The reason why imports are cheap is because the real estates in NYC, U.S. Stocks, Treasury Bonds and dollar are overvalued.

  15. Tom Wigand

    As usual, an interesting and informative interview Greg.

    Alas, I believe that as we approach the inevitable end-point of the Collectivist-Progressive central bank + welfare state regime that has been erected over the last 100+ years, and the resultant financialization of the economy, EVERY market is manipulated.

    This because the financial players are doing so (hight frequency trading; algorithms; managed earnings and stock buybacks at the intra-corporate level) AND the central banks (including BIS and IMF) post-2008 engaging in all sorts of “unconventional” means to trying to keep this global Humpty Dumpty financial structure together for just a bit longer.

    If the intent was to really fix the system, they would have done so after LTCM (Long Term Capital Management) and there would have been no 2008. Instead, they speculation and leveraged debt (derivatives) grows exponentially after each “crisis.” At some point no bailouts or money creation will succeed in buying more time.

    John Mauldin’s “Thoughts from the Frontline” this week posited that the U.S. would follow Japan’s (BOJ / central bank) lead and begin a Fed monetization not just of the federal debt, but stocks and other assets too. I would that it’s already been occurring — the Fed has been using other central banks as its proxies to buy U.S. stocks (e.g., Switzerland).

    Some of us due to investment limitations in employer sponsored plans are forced to participate in the stock market (which for now may be a good thing as we too can ride the central bank manipulation on the way up). The key for us is to prepare as best we can for when it finally blows up (assuming no orderly “reset” occurs in beforehand) — by shifting those “gains” toward debt reduction and accumulating hard / tangible assets (emphasis on precious metals) while their prices are being artificially suppressed.

    P.S. Along those lines, I wonder if any of the readers here have opinions regarding the safety / security of (Sprott) CEF? I understand the arguments for possessing physical outside to “the system” — but since I can purchase some stocks in an employer retirement account (but can’t remove in unless I leave employment), I see this as a potential supplemental way to “over allocate” my portfolio in precious metals. Especially in a Roth, which while I expect will be an option eliminated at some point, might be grandfathered-in for those already in existence and the presence of PM’s in it may provide outsized benefit on the other side of a reset or collapse.

    • DB Cooper

      TW, While your points are germane and of import to some … we are of the camp who have left the ‘system’ as best we can some long while ago … baled from the retirement funds and the blue chips … paid off the mortgage and various equipment payments, own the plane outright ! At this point we are all in with out tangible/intrinsic investments … land/equipment/Au/Ag/Hg and … Pb !!

      Yours in Faith and Liberty, FN, DB. PS: Shoot straight !!

      • DB Cooper

        TW, Meant to say ‘With our tangibles’!!

        • Tom Wigand

          DB Cooper,

          I congratulate you on being ahead of the curve. I expect that many of Greg’s readers / viewers are as well. That said, many of us are in circumstances in which we are trying to prepare as best we can, but cannot (practically) prepare as much as we might like.

          In my case, for instance, I still need to work. In turn, my employer retirement plan (paternalistically) only allows me to transfer 50% of my funds to a self-directed brokerage account — the remainder has to be in the fund offerings that they have chosen. I can’t transfer the money elsewhere unless I quit employment. So for now I’m boxed in having to do the best I can in the 50% that I can self-direct within the brokerage option (in this case, Schwab).

          Hence my comments re: CEF.

          If I had sufficient funds I’d be allocating into tangible assets overseas, some in trusts, have real estate overseas, a farm here (within less than one tank of gas from my primary residence), and so on. But as of now I’ve not the monetary resources for that.

          Greg knows that I’ve written a book (“Communiques From The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy”) that is available on Amazon. If it gets “discovered” and begins to sell well, so I get a significant financial infusion, then I can be much better prepared. Whether or not that happens is in God’s hands.

          In the meantime, I applaud those that do (assuming they acquired it honestly). Each of us has to work within our own circumstances.

    Government is a fabulous playground for criminals. If anybody gets nosy, no problem. They declare national security and shut the door.
    If I had my way, Chris Powell would be the Fed chairman, instead of the other guy.
    Is inflation dead? (business week) That is so disgusting, I don’t know how to express it.
    The world I live in shows inflation on every side.
    It’s a liars world, and I am disgusted by the never ending lies, about everything under the sun. Corruption runs deep and silent. But, that’s nothing new.
    This is my first acquaintance with Chris. I’m glad to know that Chris and GATA, are out there working on our behalf. We need more good men like Chris.
    My thanks to both Greg and Chris. This was a good learning experience concerning the treasury trading in an undisclosed number of markets. Run silent. Run deep. Manipulate it all. Have fun. Get rich. Screw everybody else! Weeee!!!

    “We want government to tell us what they are doing in the markets.”

    Most of those in government got there due to help from a rigged system. So you really need to be talking to those who keep rigging the system, and not to those (puppets) who have been elected. That said, given that those doing the rigging are essentially running a criminal operation, why exactly would they all of a sudden want to come clean and reveal what they are doing, let alone stop what they are doing?????? Never in history has anything like this happened. Can you see why Armageddon MUST come??

    • Donald

      Chris Powell said: “I’m more concerned by the refusal of the mainstream financial news organizations to cover these most blatant interventions.”

      The ones who control the governments, are the same ones who control the financial system, and are the same ones who control the media, and who control a number of other things. So it should be no surprise that the media doesn’t report on what is happening. Once you understand all of this, what is happening makes sense. Back in about April of 2013, a big change occurred in the rigged gold market. It appears at that time that the riggers threw in the towel on allocated gold, and simply sold whatever they had to, to suppress the price. Likely all that gold that people think they have with the LBMA, is simply gone. Someone in China now owns it. So it would seem that this has run its course and they are out of “ammo”. Jim Willie seems to think Vatican gold is being used right now to meet demand. Not sure how he came to that conclusion, but what is apparent is that there is very little physical left in which to manipulate markets. All it takes at this stage is a major “panic/disruption” to the “markets”, and all this will become apparent.

      • Donald

        Chris Powell said: “Interventions on the commodities markets and in the equities markets have been pushing the inflation into financial assets.”

        As I understand it, true overall inflation is due to new money being added to the system faster than new production or economization of existing production can take affect. In this regard, what I am suspicious of is new (free) money being secretly made and used by the riggers to not only enrich themselves, but perpetuate the rigging. This suspicion may be way out as there doesn’t appear to be anything one can point to other than possible circumstantial effect.

  21. Donald

    “If they if they’ve stopped manipulating the metals market, would the dollar tank?”

    I doubt a high price of gold would hurt the dollar. But stopping the overall manipulation of all the markets would kill the dollar and all the other fiat currencies that depend on this ongoing market-wide manipulation. As for gold, it looks to me that the manipulation of gold has gotten too far out of hand to stop. Now it would seem the price of gold needs to be kept down until a “force majure” can be arranged so as to provide the “legal” excuse to avoid the massive obligations that have no doubt accrued by now, and this relates to the situation that has unfolded in parallel, which is to wipe out Americans and those in the West financially.

    To Diane:
    I have to disagree with your point. Powell specifically states, “ If you are my age I am not sure if I will live to see the day when markets are liberated again”. He later goes on to tell us that “ I just don’t know when that [ gold revaluation higher] will happen. And I am very TIRED of financial analysts who say anything is only a matter of time . EVERYTHING is only a matter of time. I am sorry…”.
    As I stated , he SOUNDS fatigued and even tells us so ! And I really do not need your advice on investments since I am already highly diversified ! I do, however LISTEN carefully to what the gold market experts have to say about this aspect of my diversified portfolio. Happy Easter, Diane. Christ is risen !!!!!

    “The Bank of Japan Is Now A Top-10 Shareholder In 50% Of All Japanese Companies”
    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-17/bank-japan-now-top-10-shareholder-50-all-japanese-companies

    QUESTION: Just what percentage of the US share market does the FED own by now ?
    QUESTION: IF the FED and the US GOVT DON’T show a loss of the USD $21 TRILLION USA Watchdog reports has been STOLEN (Dr. Mark Skidmore) (https://www.forbes.com/sites/kotlikoff/2017/12/08/has-our-government-spent-21-trillion-of-our-money-without-telling-us/#65029c7d7aef), EXACTLY what reporting by the FED and the US GOVT can you believe ?

    COMMENT: The SAME small group of extremely rich and powerful that OWN the FED, and that OWN this government, and that OWN YOU and ME will NEVER EVER relinquish their control without an act of God breaking their grip.

    You can keep whining about their control over gold and silver prices, but that is only ONE small part of their operations. One VERY VERY SMALL part.

    You live in a kleptocratic parasitic plutocracy….a FAILED republic. There is NO ONE in the government who is NOT bought off, or who cannot be bought off, or who cannot be blown away if push comes to shove. Your constitution and your bill of rights have been burned up before your eyes. YOUR country has been sold out from underneath you, and your children and their children will be born into debt bondage with no means of escape.

    Happy Easter.

      Dan,
      You paint a grim picture that rings true down the line. But I haven’t given up hope yet. To take America down to the point where it can never rise again, America has to be disarmed. That has not happened yet. Everyone has their own ideas about whether this can be accomplished or not. One thing I think about in this regard; is the people that have to disarm the American people, will be hired guns. The people they must disarm is we the people who will be fighting for ourselves, our families, our freedom and the rule of law. We shall see who has the most fighting spirit in them, when the time comes. As they say in the opera, “The fat lady hasn’t sung yet.”

        isitness02,
        I totally agree! Our founding fathers planed for just such an occasion when they wrote the Constitution. Liberty can only be lost at gun barrel. The problem is the global weasels are gutless turds, so they’ll either use tactical nukes, or EMP’s that will render our defense useless. In either event, use must be prepared, physically and above all spiritually as Greg has said.

    Everybody should watch this video on the rate of global population growth to understand why things are the way they are.

    The overpopulation is actually empowering the rulers against the very people that work and whose life efforts are harvested by the rulers for the sole benefit of the rulers.

    The tendency for overpopulation appears to be genetic and requires that all Earth humans “brings it under control through intellect, rationality, intelligence and according to free choosing and controls to lead life in peace, freedom, love, righteousness, equalized-ness, helpfulness and behaviors aligned according to natural-creational law-principles” (source).

    What chance is there for that when the former director of the Vatican’s World Police Forcestates “I Was The CIA Director – We Lied, We Cheated, We Stole”?

    This attitude only invites catastrophe (man-made).

    These types seem to think that they can always develop weapons that have no defense. They are ignorant of Tesla’s defensive weapon which consisted of shooting a powerful laser at the ionosphere to draw electrons to ground. Any metallic object in proximity to the laser would become a target just like a back-yard bug killer. for lightening. The Challenger Space Shuttle suffered that fate because “someone” fired a laser at the ionosphere in close proximity to the Shuttle. Chem-trailing aircraft can suffer the same fate.

    Many countries have the ability to make such lasers.

    Stock buybacks by corporations. Just another delay tactic by the central banks to stall the reset. What’s next?
    A. Bail ins
    B. Negative interest rates
    C. More QE
    D. All of the above

    Are there any doubts who’s behind the Sri Lanka bombings ?
    https://www.wsj.com/articles/hail-satan-review-what-the-devil-are-they-after-11555618948

    Make no mistake, the globalist dream of a one world government is rooted in satanism. Lucifer’s dream to reign supreme on this earth knows no bounds. Pedophila, and child sacrifice, are placed right at the foot of the luciferian empire. This can only end one way.

      Update:
      Greg it has been brought to my attention by my contacts that the arrest of low level operatives have come to halt. Now I know why.

      The deep state has pulled out all the stops to block President Trump from restoring the rule of law. I’m not sure what his next move is, but it had better be a good one. This is going to get ugly. Real ugly…as congress is launching a new investigation by requesting financial documents from Deutsche Bank. It’s no longer about collusion. It’s kill Trump at any cost.

    Thanks Greg, great interview with GATA’s Chris Powell. It was good to hear him speak about how GATA is really about free exchange and that a reset is part of the process. Gold & silver are coming back to the world currency regime — it’s just a matter of time, as everything is 😉 .

    Bombing all these Churches and then pointing the finger using “early” and “unconfirmed reports” in order “to allege” a non-Christian did it … only serves to create religious hatred … they can’t wait for actual confirmation?? … looks to me like the same tactic the Deep State uses when they send shooters into our schools to kill our kids so as to make the dead kids parents hate gun owners!! … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-22/jihadi-imam-who-planned-sri-lanka-bombings

    GREG: WOW, what a guest. Honest, truthful
    His avoiding the conversation on value of gold and silver, to talk about restoring some honesty to our government and financial system. If we had that, the question on PMs would go away. Our government is so divided. We all know that. When we go to the polls to vote we are unsure if our vote counts, or if some one is manipulating the vote for their candidate. People such as your guest, are sending up warning flares, and the average American should pay heed to those flares. God Bless

    I don’t think Russia will become as overtly warlike as Washington wants them to be … as Russia is playing a different game … they want to psychologically win over “world public opinion” by showing the world that “they were the ones” bending over backwards to prevent WWIII … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-22/paul-craig-roberts-warns-orchestration-russophobia-prelude-war
