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?

Silver demand in 2016 was greater than supply as production output declined for first time since 2002

For those individuals who have been fretting over why silver prices have been depressed for so long, the answer is not because of oversupply.  In fact, for the first time in 14 years silver production declined in 2016, and demand for the metal was actually higher than supplies.

No the primary reason that silver has not soared higher despite the fact that it is both an industrial metal as well as a monetary metal, is because of the vast manipulation in the futures and derivatives markets which are used by the banks to protect sovereign currencies from being exposed by the metals.

Last week, the Silver Institute and the research team from GFMS at Thomson Reuters said that silver mine production declined in 2016 for the first time since 2002.  The gap between supply and demand also turned negative with 1,007.1 million ounces of supply and 1,027.8 million ounces of demand, creating a 20.7 million-ounce deficit, which puts upward pressure on silver prices.  The largest five silver producers, in order, last year were Mexico, Peru, China, Chile and Russia.  On the demand side, industrial fabrication made up over half (55%) of the demand - 562 million ounces. Jewelry was a distant second at 207 million ounces (20%), while coins and bars accounted for another 206.8 million ounces (20%).  The final 52 million ounces (5%) of demand came primarily from silverware and other decorative uses. 
Unlike gold, silver is an industrial metal as well as a precious and decorative metal, so the new industrial applications for silver provide the biggest boost in the demand curve.  Last year, for instance, demand for silver in photovoltaic applications rose 34% to over 76 million ounces, driven mostly by a 49% increase in solar panel installations last year.  At one time, investors feared what would happen to silver when the photographic process no longer demanded so much silver, but technology always moves forward, not backward, so these new industrial applications of silver have taken the place of photographic demand. - Townhall

Gold supplies declining as the cost to mine the metal continues to increase nine years after reaching Peak Gold

It was determined back in 2007 that the world had reached the point of Peak Gold, which means that the majority of easily accessible metal had already extracted from the earth and that going forward, mining costs would invariably increase just to be able to get smaller and small amounts from new gold discoveries.

Eight years later, analysts are now predicting that the industry has reached a new plateau of Peak Gold Production, and that supplies to the market will continue to decrease as well, leading to a drive up in price as demand remains steady and supplies dwindle.

This year gold has traded so strongly with the jitters in other markets that it’s easy to forget its own fundamentals. 
And that might be a mistake. Because they are looking interesting. 
Discoveries peaked in 2007 and production will shortly do the same, according to Canadian investment firm Sprott Asset Management. New finds have collapsed between then and now, but not for want of looking. Indeed, “exploration budgets rose 250% from 2009 to 2012,” Sprott’s gold team wrote in a recent note. 
It looks as though 2015 may be the peak year of global production - about 95 million ounces. On an annualised basis, the decline would be about 2.2% a year out to 2024 it said. 
This will be supportive of gold prices, which are already up more than 24% this year. But it also looks interesting for miners. It is likely that there will be a “significant wave of M&A (mergers and acquisitions) within the industry” because “companies need to replace both reserve and production ounces”. - News Markets
As the economy and banking systems tread water in their reliance for continuous quantitative easing and negative interest rates, more and more people who have discounted gold for many years will one change their tune and seek the security of wealth protection that only gold can provide.  And when that day soon comes, the problem that will hang over them is not if they can afford the price of buying the metal, but will there be any metal available to them when the flood gates open from the rise in consumer demands.

First it was GM, now Ford offshoring its production overseas

After President Obama nationalized General Motors back in 2009, the car company that was once the greatest corporation in American history changed course and began moving its operations out of the once grand city of Detroit, and across the Pacific where they built four new plants over the past six years.  Now on Nov. 30, the Ford Motor Company is following in these footsteps and under a new labor agreement signed with the United Auto Workers (UAW), will see the famous auto manufacturer offshore some of its own production and labor, while at the same time hiring lower wage workers for the jobs that will remain in the United States.
Welcome to the vision that is TPP.

Besides banning cash, banking cartel begins to drop hints of ending capitalism entirely

In capitalism, one of the most important fundamentals is that of price discovery being a natural occurrence determined between supply and demand among producers and consumers.  But for centuries this natural facet of free markets has been stymied due to political agendas, and corporate manipulation.
And with the advent of central banks, who have used their power over money supplies and interest rates to skew the natural course of all price discovery, and determine winners and losers in the ‘free markets’, their inevitable failures are now leading financiers and economists within their sphere to blame the tools of the market as the problem, and not their own actions and policies.
Which suddenly leads us to their next scheme, and one that is an attempt to stave off the bubbles and debt traps they have created for themselves and all of society… the ending of both cash and capitalism completely, and moving towards a 100% mandated economy run by a combination of the state and the banks.
In essence, the implementation of fascism.

America’s legacy of lost jobs and lower wages 20 years after NAFTA

In 1994, President Bill Clinton signed into law the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which allowed new parameters for trade and trade protections between the nations of Canada, Mexico, and the United States.  This new treaty superseded the Canada-United States Free Trade Agreement, and opened up the Western hemisphere to a new globalist approach to trade.

But as the former Independent Presidential candidate Ross Perot succinctly predicted, NAFTA would go far beyond its original intentions and scope, and instead of simply providing a standard of rules by which trade would take place between the three nations, the end result was the corporate use of the treaty to move businesses completely out of the United States, and into one or all three countries to use their own laws to profit from loopholes which have led to over one million high paying jobs having fled the U.S. in the 20 years the trade agreement has been in place.

Greek production and tourism closing the doors on economic recovery

Even after the EU bailout of Greece, and the subsequent austerity imposed on its citizens, not a single indicator shows that the Mediteranean nation is emerging from any sort of depression.  In fact, both economic production and tourism, the two mainstays of Greek economy, are spiraling down to historic levels.



Athens has the highest rate of empty office space in Europe, according to data for the year’s first quarter presented by BNP Paribas Real Estate.
Its report on the course of the European office market showed that the availability rate in the Greek capital soared to 20 percent in the January-March period from 15.5 percent in the same period last year.


This clearly illustrates the blow that the recession has inflicted on the country’s business activity, resulting in a major drop in demand for the lease of office space.
Additionally:
Online tourism bookings from abroad are pointing to a 12.5 percent decline for this year, according to the Airfasttickets travel agency.
Nikos Koklonis, head of the company that owns the agency, says that the biggest drop in bookings for Greek destinations this year is from the German market, which last year accounted for 15 percent of all bookings. Its share has now shrunk to just 3 percent.
Surprisingly, most bookings from abroad this year originate from Italy, followed by Britain, Spain, France and Austria. One in four clients the agency handles chooses Greece as its destination.
Association of Hellenic Tourism Enterprises president (SETE) Andreas Andreadis expects receipts from tourism to drop below 10 billion euros this year, after climbing to 10.5 billion in 2011. - Ekathimerini
Forced austerity is a death sentence to any nation, both fundamentally and economically.  Few politicians have the stomach to implement slow changes, since the people, once they get socialistic promises of pensions, welfare, and healthcare, will fight governments to the end until there is little left and the entire ball drops.

This is why Greece is simply a microcosm of what will occur to most of Europe in the future.  As former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once said:  "The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money."

Gas prices soar on dollar devaluation even as consumption drops to 10-year lows

One of the biggest misnomers in finance and economics today is that prices work according to supply and demand.  This was true when America performed in actual capitalist system, but since we moved to both fascism and crony capitalism, where corporations, banks, and government all work together at the betterment of themselves and not society, prices are fixed due to other factors such as dollar devaluation.

U.S. drivers used 2.8 percent less motor gasoline last year and consumed the smallest amount since 1999, the U.S. Department of Energy said Wednesday. Officials credited the decrease to more fuel-efficient cars and an aging population taking few trips.
Meanwhile, U.S. domestic oil production increased by more than 2 percent last year to 5.6 million barrels per day. - Des Moines Register
So... if consumption is way down, and production is actually up, should not gasoline prices be falling?  They should, except if you take into consideration the amount of money printing and currency devaluation being done by the Federal Reserve over the past four years, the amount of  inflation is being created by our own banking system, and not by a lack of products, or by higher demand.

In the end, Americans are being deceived by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke.

Bernanke said that for now, the Fed expects overall U.S. inflation to remain low, and that the Fed is being “extremely vigilant” to make sure it does not wait too long before tightening money policy. He dismissed GOP questions about inflation worldwide, saying it is occurring in emerging markets, not the United States. - The Hill
