The Staggering Amount Of Gold & Silver Investment Since The 2008 Financial Crisis
While the demand for precious metals is certainly off its highs from prior years, investors would be quite surprised by the astonishing amount of physical gold and silver investment since the 2008 financial crisis. Only by comparing the gold and silver investment demand to the prior decade, can we truly understand how the precious metals market has changed, and probably forever...
...for those few who still believe in the “Crypto Miracle,” to overtake 2,000+ years of gold and silver as money, you have my sympathies. I am not going to get into any details, but just to say… don’t count on High-Tech to solve our problems in the future. High-tech only creates more problems. So, if you believe high-tech is going to solve problems, then you don’t understand the historical record on the “Collapse of Complex Societies.”...
Today, we are in the same predicament as the Ancient Roman Empire. However, the overwhelming majority of people don’t see it because they are only focused on short-term results and information. Thus, to truly understand the future, we have to look back in the past. And, if we do this with gold and silver investment, we will see a very interesting trend. According to some of the best industry sources, the World Gold Council and World Silver Surveys, investors purchased 16,200 metric tons (mt) of gold and 57,800 mt of silver from 2009-2018:
That turns out to be 520 million oz of gold and a nearly 2 billion oz of silver. Now, these figures only represent the physical bar and coin demand. I did not include ETF’s or similar products. First, there is no way of knowing if the gold or silver is over-subscribed in these precious metals ETF’s or secondly, if all the metal that is listed, is contained in the vaults. So, the figures are likely much higher, especially for silver... https://srsroccoreport.com/the-staggering-amount-of-gold-silver-investment-since-the-2008-financial-crisis/

Shock Claim: Clinton Team Hatched ‘Blame Russia’ Plan Within 24 Hours Of Loss – Resulted In 675 Day Mueller Investigation
The narrative that eventually spawned the Mueller investigation was concocted in a gloomy room littered with discarded Shake Shack containers in November 2016. Even though Hillary Clinton had delivered a concession speech the day before, Clinton and her team were not ready to give up yet, and so they needed a strategy to de-legitimize the election results. They eventually decided on a plan to “blame Russia” for Hillary’s loss, and that included really pushing a narrative that the Trump campaign had colluded with the Russians to defeat Clinton. As this plan was rolled out, this narrative was eagerly embraced by pro-Clinton members of federal law enforcement agencies, and it ultimately resulted in the 675 day Mueller investigation. Robert Mueller issued nearly 2,800 subpoenas and conducted 500 witness interviews, and in the end he found that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians…
“The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” Mueller wrote in the report, according to Barr’s letter, which he sent to the chairmen and ranking members of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees. Barr also said that the special counsel, which consisted of 19 lawyers, found no evidence “that any U.S. person or Trump campaign official or associate” conspired or “knowingly coordinated” with Russian efforts to use social media platforms to spread disinformation during the 2016 campaign. Nor did Trump associates conspire with Russians in the efforts to hack Democrats’ emails and disseminate them online. http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/shock-claim-clinton-team-hatched-blame-russia-plan-within-24-hours-of-loss-resulted-in-675-day-mueller-investigation
Whose Blood, Whose Treasure?
“Veni, Vidi, Vici,” boasted Julius Caesar, one of history’s great military captains. “I came, I saw, I conquered.” Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton echoed that famed saying when summing up the Obama administration’s military intervention in Libya in 2011 — with a small alteration. “We came, we saw, he died,” she said with a laugh about the killing of Muammar Gaddafi, that country’s autocratic leader. Note what she left out, though: the “vici” or victory part. And how right she was to do so, since Washington’s invasions, occupations, and interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and elsewhere in this century have never produced anything faintly like a single decisive and lasting victory.
“Failure is not an option” was the stirring 1995 movie catchphrase for the dramatic 1970 rescue of the Apollo 13 moon mission and crew, but were such a movie to be made about America’s wars and their less-than-vici-esque results today, the phrase would have to be corrected in Clintonian fashion to read “We came, we saw, we failed.”
Wars are risky, destructive, unpredictable endeavors, so it would hardly be surprising if America’s military and civilian leaders failed occasionally in their endless martial endeavors, despite the overwhelming superiority in firepower of “the world’s greatest military.” Here’s the question, though: Why have all the American wars of this century gone down in flames and what in the world have those leaders learned from such repetitive failures?... http://www.unz.com/tengelhardt/whose-blood-whose-treasure/

This wild thought is from Jim Willie's Hat Trick Letter: CLONE LEGAL QUESTION… NEW GROUND IN PROSECUTION.
Hillary Clinton is rumored widely to be dead, having died before the election results in November 2016. Her young clone appeared in the October 2016 debate hosted by CNN, who faced off against now President Donald Trump. For the first time in modern US history, the loser in a presidential election did not make a concession speech on election night. The original Hillary could not, since dead. The clone refused, for fear of recognition. The two women appear to be 25 years or more different in appearance, the haggard original versus the vibrant young version. A more credible quick argument could be made of mother and daughter. The Hillary clone still runs around, seen recently in London among elite meetings. She might live for another 150 years in a strung out sequence of younger clone arrivals. By the way, expert analysts ran voice checks on the two women from the debate, to confirm identical voice prints. See the vast differences between the old hag and the young clone. Anyone who believes these are the same person in the same body is a total moron, an utter fool, and a complete idiot. The descriptions of gaunt and vibrant fit well, in sharp contrast. Consider a tough legal question. If the original Hillary death is kept quiet and her clone reality is also kept quiet, the possibility arises for the Hillary clone to be executed for high treason, espionage, and racketeering, such crimes having been committed by the original Hillary. In a court of law, the prosecution would prove the original Hillary committed the array of crimes, and then offer genetic proof that the younger clone Hillary bears the identical DNA. The case could suddenly become very interesting, since no laws on the US statutes cover this issue. The Supreme Court might be forced to step in, then to admit clone technology is commonly used to produce doubles for the elite. Then the high court must remove legal liability from the original to the clone, and vice versa. The ground breaking laws would result in tremendous controversy, most assuredly over the technology itself with focus shifted to the cited known centers for elite activity. Worse, the original criminals could later claim the clone committed the crimes in stealth operations and deeds, with a messy new chapter of plausible doubt thrust into the court rooms...
