While many people were sleeping off their New Year's Eve revelries, the world became a little bit less secure not only internationally, but in the U.S. as well. Beginning in the Middle East, where Saudi Arabia and Iran cut off diplomatic ties thanks to the Royal family issuing execution orders for 47 people, including an outspoken Shiite cleric, Iranian protesters burned down the Saudi embassy in Tehran.
Iranian protesters ransacked and set fire to the Saudi Embassy in Tehran on Saturday after Saudi Arabia executed an outspoken Shiite cleric who had criticized the kingdom’s treatment of its Shiite minority.
The cleric, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, was among 47 men executed in Saudi Arabia on terrorism-related charges, drawing condemnation from Iran and its allies in the region, and sparking fears that sectarian tensions could rise across the Middle East.
The executions coincided with increased attacks in Saudi Arabia by the jihadists of the Islamic State and an escalating rivalry between the Sunni monarchy and Shiite Iran that is playing out in conflicts in Syria, Yemen and elsewhere. Sheikh Nimr was an outspoken critic of the Saudi monarchy and was adopted as a symbolic leader by Shiite protesters in several Persian Gulf countries during the Arab Spring uprisings. - New York Times
Oath Keepers including founder Stewart Rhodes was the only organization to predict how Ammon Bundy's vague calls for action on the part of the Hammond Family would actually play out. They received a lot of ignorant attacks in response, and yet, they were absolutely right.
Ammon, apparently trying to recreate what cannot be recreated, is looking for another Bundy Ranch stand-off. First, I would point out that such events can't be artificially fabricated. They have to happen in an organic way. Whenever a group of people attempt to engineer a revolutionary moment, even if their underlying motivations are righteous, it usually ends up kicking them in the ass (Fort Sumter is a good example). Ammon's wingmen appear to be Blaine Cooper aka Stanley Blaine Hicks (a convicted felon), and Ryan Payne (who claimed falsely during the Bundy Ranch standoff that he was an Army Ranger and who worked diligently to cause divisions between involved parties on the ground). This was the first sign that nothing good was going to come from the Hammond protest.
I have watched extensive video from the event in Oregon and am privy to accounts from participants. From the information at my disposal, it would appear that Ammon and team did NOT make clear their intentions to occupy the federal wildlife refuge building except to a select few, inviting protesters to "take a hard stand" without revealing what this would entail until they were already in the middle of it all. OPSEC? No, I think not. Obviously the goal was to lure as many protesters to Oregon as possible to the event in the hopes that they would jump on board with the stand-off plan once they were more personally involved. Numerous protesters were rightly enraged once they discovered the ultimate motives behind the event. - Alt-Market.com
The bottom line is that the people of every race, religion, and sects are becoming angry and are now willing to engage in radical actions to let their voices be known. From the rise of outsider Donald Trump to the lead in this year's Presidential campaign, to a refugee crisis in Europe that has caused gun restricted countries like Switzerland, Austria, and even Germany to call for everyone to arm themselves, the frequency of society is rushing headlong into change, and by all accounts, that change will be a violent and deadly one.
Perhaps just like it was for Europe, the Middle East (Ottoman Empire), and the U.S. 100 years ago.
Over the weekend, well known gold analyst Jim Sinclair penned an essay where he stepped far outside the bounds of his normal analysis and surprisingly spoke on the immediate need for people to become prepared... not just with gold and silver, but with every type of disaster preparedness needed to cover any form of emergency or crisis. And judging by the reaction of markets on Monday, even Wall Street is feeling the effects of change in the air.
Economic, financial, geo-political, and domestic events are all in play, and accelerating towards a nexus where no one can predict what their outcomes may be. And the most important thing for you to do is to prepare yourself for whatever change is coming, and to be able to function where monetary systems may not be as readily available as they are today.
Buying gold through Karatbars is one of the easiest things on the net. In fact, the business model of Karatbars is to sell gold in affordable quantities, such as 1, 2.5, and 5 gram increments, and allow customers to get into the metal without having to shell out $1200+ for a single ounce coin.
And as added perks to signing up with Karatbars, as a customer or affiliate, Karatbars is working on a new e-wallet system that functions just like an offshore bank account, and is outside the authority of the banking system. From there, you can take your fiat currency in any denomination... dollars, euros, yen, etc... and purchase physical gold which can either be delivered directly to you, or stored for free at one of Karatbar's vaults.
Additionally, any gold that you buy can easily be sold back to Karatbars, or any metals dealer, and if with Karatbars it is then exchanged for currency that is uploaded to you through a pre-loaded debit Mastercard which is connected directly to your e-wallet. And as we know, MasterCard is recognized in nearly every country around the world, and usable in any currency that accepts it.
But perhaps the best feature with Karatbars is their affiliate program, where you can earn money off commissions from getting others to sign up and become a customer or affiliate. Not only do you receive commissions from their purchasing of physical gold, but you also earn commissions from anyone who buys a commission package, with that money going directly into your debit MasterCard when you have enough units to cycle.
Imagine the ability to earn the money in which to buy your gold savings simply by purchasing a commission affiliate package one time, and then getting others to sign up and do the same thing.
How many businesses or entrepreneurs can build an infinite business with spending less than $400 of their own money? And there is never a mandatory requirement to buy beyond what you desire, on your own schedule. And there is nothing to lose, because you're using money (paper dollars) to buy gold (physical money) and in the end you don't lose a thing.
The global financial system, along with dozens of respected economists, are telling us that now is the time for the end of our current form of money, and the beginning of the transition into a new monetary system that is expected to be backed by gold. And with banks, governments, and even Harvard professors mandating that central banks have no choice but to eliminate cash from usage by the people to stave off collapse, will you wait until it is too late to make a decision on how you will protect your wealth, and be able to function within the coming new monetary system?
