The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Syria could be the trigger for the start of gold backed trade if Trump decides to implement sanctions

Earlier on April 7, President Donald Trump's Treasury Secretary hinted that the administration was looking at a possible escalation against the Assad regime in Syria, and that they have not ruled out initiating economic sanctions against the Middle Eastern country.  However, with China and Russia both in full support of President Bashir Assad in his fight against both ISIS and Islamic radicals posing as 'Syrian rebels', this move by Trump could very well be the catalyst that accelerates the planned gold trade system that Russia and China have already announced.

Just hours after unleashing a missile strike on Syria, Steven Mnuchin announced that the US will announce sanctions “in the near future” against the Assad regime.  
Joined by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in a briefing at Mar-a-Lago estate, the Treasury Secretary said the U.S. would impose sanctions on Syria “to stop this type of activity," according to a pool report and multiple media reports. It wasn't clear what sanctions are under consideration: last time we checked the local Four Seasons had seen better days, as for the war-ravaged economy we very much doubt it relies on trade with the US, or has substantial cash deposits in US banks, although those regions of Syria still under ISIS control are surely regular beneficiaries of having their banks hooked up to SWIFT. 
Mnuchin’s announcement was the latest sign that the Trump administration continues to escalate efforts against the Syrian President one week after Rex Tillerson said Assad's fate would be in the hands of Syria's people. - Zerohedge
Yet here is the kicker in Washington's latest attempt to scare a country by disconnecting them from SWIFT.  When the U.S. did this to Iran a decade ago, the Middle Eastern oil power simply bypassed the petrodollar and began conducting sales of energy through Turkey for... gold.  And thus they were able to survive more than 10 years of harsh sanctions that in the past would have crippled a nation.

Additionally, when the U.S. decided to falsely blame Russia for interfering in their unlawful overthrow of the Ukrainian government three plus years ago, Putin simply forged new trade agreements with China that not only helped them grow much larger than they were before, but to also give them the motivation to build their own SWIFT type payment system which could be used as an alternative for any nation who might in the future receive their own economic sanctions from the warmongering West.

Regarding “gold as money,” China and Russia confirmed this truism in spades this weekend, when they dropped a monetary bombshell by announcing their intention to pursue a trade settlement mechanism focused on gold - as described here.  To that end, Russia’s opening of a Beijing trade office last month was a major incremental step in the two superpowers’ ongoing initiative to “de-dollarize,” and lead an Eastern Trade Bloc outside the purview of the U.S., Europe, and other Western puppets like Japan. 
The New Development Bank (formerly known as the BRICS Development Bank); and the China International Payment System, or CIPS; have already been launched in an effort to “de-dollarize” the East.  And yet, even I was surprised by yesterday’s announcement; as while China and Russia are by far the world’s largest gold buyers; and perhaps, if real accounting were utilized, the world’s largest holders; I didn’t expect them to overtly utilize gold as a bi-lateral trade settlement tool.  Then again, on a visit to China last year, Russian Central Bank Deputy Chief Sergey Shvetsov said the two countries want to facilitate gold-settled trade; whilst just last month, another senior official at the Russian Central Bank, Vladimir Shapovalov, said the two nations were drafting a memorandum of understanding to solve technical issues around China’s gold imports from Russia, and that details would be released soon. - Silverseek
And thus we are at a crossroads, and the potential catalyst for Russia and China to activate their planned gold trade system if President Trump decides to act the belligerent bully and institute sanctions on Assad and the Syrian government.  Because if this does occur, you can guarantee that President's Putin and Jinping will welcome Syria's monetary system into their new respective payment systems, and then launch the knockout blow by demanding that all new trade be conducted not in dollars, but in physical gold backed letters of credit.

Fed jawboning kills gold and silver rally one day after each crossed their 200 day moving average

Following last night's U.S. missile attack in Syria as a punitive response for the perceived use of sarin gas against civilians, gold and silver both rose more than 1% to end overnight trading above their 200 day moving averages, and above hard resistance levels that had taken five months to recover to.

Gold:



Silver:


Yet while these levels stayed above their 200 day moving averages for a few hours after U.S. markets opened, a sudden and mysterious move in the dollar and yen following some minor comments from NY Fed President Bill Dudley were enough to crush all the gains gold and silver had from last night, and end the week well below the resistance levels that could have opened up the next leg for gold and silver prices.


It was not clear what was the catalyst for the sharp move, however shortly before the move Bill Dudley spoke, discussing the future of the Fed's balance sheet: 
  • FED'S DUDLEY: RATES WILL BE PRIMARY POLICY TOOL, NOT 'GRADUAL' BALANCE SHEET REDUCTION
  • FED'S DUDLEY: PORTFOLIO RUN OFF WILL NOT BE 'ACTIVE' TOOL OF MONETARY POLICY
  • FED'S DUDLEY: ONE REASON TO SHED BONDS IS TO LEAVE OPEN OPTION TO EXPAND BALANCE SHEET IN FUTURE
  • FED'S DUDLEY: LIKELY WON'T RETURN TO PRE-CRISIS SIZE BOND PORTFOLIO
  • FED'S DUDLEY: PREFERS RETAINING CURRENT 'FLOOR' POLICY MECHANISM IN FUTURE, WITH PERHAPS $500 BLN - $1 TRLN IN EXCESS RESERVES
  • FED'S DUDLEY: REPEATS EXPECTS TO BEGIN SHEDDING BONDS LATER THIS YEAR OR NEXT YEAR
in which he pointed out that balance sheet normalization would likely lead to only a "little pause" in rate hikes to avoid concurrent policy moves. 
FED'S DUDLEY: SHEDDING BONDS MAY LEAD ONLY TO 'LITTLE PAUSE' IN RATE HIKES; PERHAPS AVOID SIMULTANEOUS POLICY MOVES - Zerohedge

Gold and silver soar in overnight trading as U.S. and Trump begin shelling Syria

President Donald Trump followed through with his about-face on April 6 as the U.S. changed course in the Syrian conflict and began to shell the Middle Eastern nation with Tomahawk Missiles.

In the wake a horrific gas attack that has all the earmarks of a previous one done by 'moderate rebels' back in 2013 to try to scapegoat on President Bashir Assad, the White House did not wait for any official confirmation this evening and instead fell victim to what again appears to be a false flag propaganda effort to bring about a war that could escalate against both Russia and China.

As previewed earlier tonight, the United States fired a barrage of cruise missiles into Syria on Friday morning in retaliation for this week's alleged chemical weapons attack against civilians by the Assad regime, U.S. officials said. It was the first direct American assault on the Syrian government and Donald Trump's most dramatic military order since becoming president. According to NBC, only tomahawks missiles fired, no fixed wing aircraft involved, for now. 
As AP notes, the surprise strike marked a striking reversal for Trump, who warned as a candidate against the U.S. getting pulled into the Syrian civil war, now in its seventh year. But the president appeared moved by the photos of children killed in the chemical attack, calling it a "disgrace to humanity" that crossed "a lot of lines."
The president did not announce the attacks in advance, though he and other national security officials ratcheted up their warnings to the Syrian government throughout the day Thursday. 
The strike early Friday morning in Syria targeted hangars, planes and fuel tanks at one Syrian military airfield, according to a U.S. official. The U.S. attacked with about 60 Raytheon Co. Tomahawk cruise missiles fired from two Navy destroyers.
About 60 U.S. Tomahawk missiles, fired from warships in the Mediterranean Sea, targeted an air base in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack that American officials believe Syrian government aircraft launched with a nerve agent; hangars, planes and fuel tanks were targeted, a U.S. official sais. Two Navy destroyers launched Raytheon missiles against Syria two days after Bashar al-Assad’s regime used poison gas to kill scores of civilians. - Zerohedge
In the meantime global markets are in chaos over the escalation of the conflict in Syria, and both gold and silver prices have soared more than 1% in overnight trading.

Double whammy: Influx of immigrants into Europe are job seekers moving into recessionary markets

By now most intelligent people have realized that the influx of millions of ‘refugees’ into the Eurozone are not casualties of the Syrian conflict, but opportunists seeking better economic conditions than what they had in their Middle Eastern or East European country’s.  And what makes this disaster even greater is that these ‘job seekers’ are coming at a time when most of Europe is falling into a economic recession and rising unemployment.
Yet despite the obvious, and the overwhelming evidence that many of these refugees care little about the laws of the nations they are flocking into, government leaders appear to be impotent in dealing with the immigrant problem, as well as protecting their own people and economies from this takeover.

U.S. Senator calls for a new surtax to fund ISIS ‘war’ as 8 out of 10 Americans think we are losing

Since 2003, Congress has spent over $3 trillion on wars in the Middle East, with little to show for it besides the rise of an Islamic caliphate.  And if more than a decade at war isn’t enough for the American public, a U.S. Senator from the state of Delaware wants to create a new surtax on the people to fund an escalation of the ‘war’ on ISIS, and at a time when 8 out of 10 Americans believe the Obama administration has failed in his mission to stop radical Islam.
The sad part of course is that Congress has not declared an actual war, and like the immense waste that occurred in Iraq and Afghanistan, who knows where revenues from this tax would really go.

As China goes after SWIFT and London Gold Fix markets, Russia prepares to go after Brent and WTI

There is an old axiom that goes, if you can’t beat em, join em.  And for Eastern powers such as China and Russia, they are taking this adage one step further by implementing a policy of, if you don’t want to join em, create duplicate market mechanisms and replace em.
Over the course of 2015 China has done just this with their new economic policies of bringing online a new SWIFT type system (CIPS), joining the board of the London Gold Fix, and even having the IMF adopt them into their SDR basket of currencies.  But even as dollar hegemony and the petro-dollar start to decline from years of misuse by Washington, the one foundation that keeps their empirical status functioning is the control over oil.
But that may soon be changing as on Dec. 10, Russia announced they are building a new oil market platform meant to compete directly with BRENT and WTI markets, and which would allow them to sell their own oil in currencies other than the dollar.

Obama to give $800 million to fund terror groups in Syria and Ukraine

Earlier this year, President Obama signed legislation that provided $500 million to fund ‘moderate’ Syrian groups that just happened to also be on the Terror watch list.  This program also blew up in the President’s face as it was later reported that the money sent to train hundreds of Syrian fighters only ever trained five of them.
So it should be no surprise that Obama is going back to the well again, and in the newest Defense appropriations bill, the President is designating $800 million now that will go to support terrorist groups in both Syria and Ukraine.

U.S. ignores the UN small arms treaty they signed and are selling arms to rogue nations

Remember back in 2013 when the U.S. signed onto the United National Small Arms Treaty parameters, which restricted the selling of arms to rogue and aggressive nations?  Well, like nearly all treaties the government has signed since its inception, enforcement and integrity tied to their signature lasts about as long as it takes a corporation or political party to want to profit from breaking that treaty.
So it should come as no surprise that the U.S. Department of Defense just signed a deal where they would sell $11 billion worth of arms to Saudi Arabia, which is enlisted in an illegal war against their neighboring country of Yemen.

Forget Syria, Iran and Saudi Arabia moving into Russian camp

One of the most poignant and important things about the ongoing Russian occupation in Syria is that President Assad invited Putin to send in troops and arms to fight Islamic terror groups, while the U.S. led ISIS and militant rebels are little more than rogue offenders seeking to illegally bring down a sovereign government.  And despite all the rhetoric being used against Russia by the Western media, support within the Middle East is actually more on the side of Putin than it is on Washington.
And because of this growing support, nations outside of Syria, and even ones that were once strongly in the American camp, are suddenly changing course and are seeking new trade and financial agreements with the Eurasian power that could completely change the landscape of the Middle East.

Escalating refugee crisis in Germany could be linchpin that brings down Chancellor Merkel

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has faced several political attacks since she won re-appointment to the highest office in the land back in December of 2013.  First it was the Ukraine crisis, which quickly led to continent wide sanctions between the U.S. and Russia which forced Germany into taking sides against their long standing trade partner.  And now Merkel is being bombarded with a new problem that has in a short period of time, turned from support to rebellion as the flow of refugees from Muslim countries threatens her ability to lead.
When so-called Syrian refugees flooded into Europe from Turkey a few months ago, German citizens welcomed them with open arms and stood with their Chancellor in providing humanitarian aid to the wartorn peoples.  But as news emerged that a majority of the refugees were not from Syria, and that many began to inflict violent crimes such as rape and murder on the regular citizens of Germany, that support has turned into rebellion, and is now knocking on the door of the government itself.

Are Russia and the OPEC nations creating plans for the end of the Petro-dollar this week?

This week marks the annual MAKS air show that is held each year in Moscow and surrounding regions, and there is a very interesting lineup of attendees that are coming to this year’s event.  Among them are several leaders from the Middle East and from OPEC nations, and it will bring together several parties that have the power to direct energy and military policies going forward for their countries.
But what is of strategic importance, and what could possibly end up being a monumental sea change in the global energy spectrum, is that this week’s event could bring about the plans for an end of the petro-dollar, and a rise of oil and natural gas being sold primarily in Yuan, or even perhaps gold.

EU countries buying oil from ISIS might be the reason why they wont join U.S in bombing Syria

Last week, President Obama came out acting all John Wayne to the camera and stated that he has finalized his new strategy for taking out the ISIS threat in the Middle East.  Included in this strategy was the desire for NATO countries such as Britian and Germany to be part of his coalition, along with several Arab nations who are suddenly feeling the heat from the radical caliphate.
 
But interestingly enough, Britain, Germany, and Turkey announced they won’t sing kumbaya with America in their desire to take out ISIS by way of Assad and Syria, and perhaps the reason for this is that on Sept. 15, members of the European Union (EU) admitted that they are purchasing oil from ISIS, who took over several wells in Iraq when they solidified their occupation.

Gold should fall to below $1200 in short term as India dumps on market to stabilize currency

Over the past 10 days, the spot price of both gold and silver has dropped by more than 9% to stabilize around $1320 per ounce.  This move, which began on Sept. 3, and accelerated around the 9th of the month, is tied primarily to gold leases dumped on the markets by India in an attempt to stave off attacks on the Rupee.
According to a former head trader from the Royal Bank of Scotland, this metals beat down is a reaction to attacks by the U.S. on BRIC nations for attempting to create a new reserve currency and alternative lending facility, and in the short term, could drive the spot price to just below $1200.

Jim WIllie: U.S. is going to have to split and devalue the dollar for separate foreign and domestic use

Dr. Jim Willie, statistician, economist, and publisher the Hat Trick newsletter, spoke in an interview with USA Watchdog on Sept. 8 regarding the G20, Syria, and the status of the coming alternative currencies.  In the interview, Willie noted that not only is the world isolating the U.S. in regards to their foreign policy agenda, but they are forcing the U.S. to have to adapt to a new currency system where they will no longer have global control in a petrodollar.  This action could also mean the U.S. having to split their debt backed money, which would lead to a devaluation and massive rise in inflation at home.
This split would entail there being a dollar strictly for domestic use, which would bring instant inflation to American consumers, and an international dollar that foreigners who hold dollar reserves can deal with outside of Fed monetization.

Syrian hackers post message on Marine website one day after news of a military mutiny against Obama over Syria

It has not been a very good Labor Day weekend for President Obama over the growing fiasco in his Syrian foreign policy.  On Sept. 2, a Syrian cyber group hacked into the primary Marine website Marines.com, posting a propaganda piece which informed military personnel that siding with the rebels is siding with the terror group Al Qaeda, and that the Syrian military itself stands with their American ‘brothers’ in fighting on the same side.

Russia cuts off NATO access to Cyprus by offering them loans to restructure debt

Once again, Russia has strategically moved a pawn to block NATO and the United States on the chessboard of Syria.  In an agreement which completely shuts out opposition forces from using Cyprus as a base of operations for potential strikes against Syria, Russia offered the government cash to pay off existing loans with European banks, and restructured their debt at more amenable interest rates.

UN’s failure to issue Responsibility to Protect clause unmasks U.S. lies over chemical weapon attack in Syria

On Aug. 27, Vice President Joe Biden made a propaganda speech in Houston citing that there is undeniable proof that President Assad ordered and fired chemical weapons onto insurgents and civilians in the ongoing civil war to topple the government.  However, these allegations appear to be completely false, and with the Obama administration playing a card from former President George Bush’s hand in which he decried WMD’s as the reason for the Iraqi invasion, where is the United Nations (UN) speaking out for a coalition attack under their Responsibility to Protect clause?
Nowhere.  Because even the UN knows there is no evidence available regarding who ordered a chemical attack in Syria.

Saudi Arabia is the linchpin in the Syrian conflict which could bring down entire global economy

With the United States and NATO countries geared up for war with Syria over spurious claims of chemical weapon use, the one country not being mentioned as a target of reprisal is Saudi Arabia.  And according to analyst Steve Quayle on the Aug. 26 Hagmann and Hagmann Report, should coalition forces attack the Assad government with any strength, the primary target of reprisal by Iranian, Syrian, and Russian could very well be Saudi Arabia, and their oil infrastructures.

Russian Minister calls President Obama a Bush clone after pushing U.S. into war with Syria

For both Senator Obama, and the liberal contingent who castigated former President George Bush over our wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, it is an interesting turn of events five years later when now President Obama has hypocritically ordered attacks into more countries than the man he spoke out against for such actions in while in Congress.  And the current President is now doing so with a zeal not seen since the days of colonialism when former European powers used war to gain footholds in the Middle East and Africa.
 
And from this increased warmongering comes an interesting and disturbing irony in foreign relations when on Aug. 25, Russian minister Alexei Pushkov tweeted out that Obama has now become little more than a Bush clone as he cites WMD propaganda as the means to instigate a U.S. war with Syria.

Potential war in Middle East escalates as Syria deploys chemical scuds on border

More than Iran, Syria may become the powederkeg to World War III, and the savior to the banking system and corrupt world leaders who desperately need an external threat to take the heat off their insolvency and inability to deal with the problems they helped create.

Expanded Russian military and diplomatic support for the Assad regime was underscored by the deployment Friday, Dec. 16, of advanced Moscow-supplied Yakhont (SSN-26) shore-to-sea missiles along Syria's Mediterranean shore to fend off a potential Western-Turkish invasion by sea. Last week, Russia airlifted to Syria 3 million face masks against chemical and biological weapons and the Admiral Kutznetsov carrier and strike group was sent on its way to Syria's Mediterranean port of Tartus. - Debka
The moment chemical warfare is used, if it is used, then all bets are off.  Biblical prophecy has a war showing Damascus as a ruinous heap, and the only weapon capable of accomplishing this is a nuke.
So as the US and Europe rattle their sabres at Iran, don't forget to watch Syria, for it is the next Arab Spring nation to fall, especially now that the US has pulled out its troops from Iraq.
