I wonder how that works out, long-term.

James Howard Kunstler has interesting observations in today's installment of his blog


What he suggests (as many have) is that this war is a distraction. What he's also saying is that the move to shut down oil production is not JUST the result of orders of the Green Gretaists. It's to engineer the famine that has now been firmly launched - so that Joe and Nan and Jay, can distract us from the coming criminal charges out of these quack-vaxxes, and speed up the ethnic cleansing. The answer will be again, to fire New Money out of cannons, as Stimmy checks...to keep the masses sated and obedient and in their homes until the Grim Reaper comes.

Unmentioned is, where Joe is gonna get the foodstuffs to do this with. We can't eat money.

tell him to go lay by his dish,

these dimwits and their bs of pop extermination, worldiwde forced famines, whatever

idiots

all of them

yeah, I ain't getting this stuff

the way they are calling for vlads head,
the commentary coming from all sides re russha, etc

this is some way off the wall stuff going on and certainly out of the norm of days gone by,
they are breaking all the rules of etiquette between countries, even if enemies

and yes, that includes tramp bombing the chit out of that iranian general for no reason other than he could,
that too was breaking rules

Everytime POO catches a bid today, positions get sold off... 53% longs, down from 58%.

Yet the only thing that isn't swimming in a sea of red today are oil and the shit dollar. Go figure.

The metals have held up well, but the already cheap producers are being sold off right along with the overpriced index funds.

I find this interesting because of the 5G angle.


Vaccinated People Are Being TRACKED In Real Time​

Published on March 12, 2022

Written by Steve Rotter



AI-profiling-people.jpg


A Russian hacker found a database that shows covid vaccinated people’s info, vital signs, exact GPS coordinates, sleep status and more. This data is being uploaded in real time directly from the vaccinated person via 5G towers.



Think of it as a smart watch (Garmin, Fitbit, etc.) inside your body, tracking your vital signs and GPS location at all times.

How Are Covid Vaccinated People Being Tracked?

  • A test subject is injected with the Covid “vaccine” containing nano gel
  • The Covid Vaccine contains nanotech, complete with processor and transmitter (you are the transmitter)
  • Nanotech collects data on your vital signs and GPS location
  • Transmitter transmits subject’s data via 5G towers to servers (computers with massive databases)
  • Massive databases are kept with all data of all Covid vaccinated people / guinea pigs / test subjects
If you remember back to 2020, 5G towers were burned to the ground in many areas due to the stories surrounding what the new cell tower technology may be used for.

Covid was NEVER about a virus, it’s about money and power, controlled by Big Pharma and The Deep State.


People who have received the covid vaccine are now being tracked in real time by this Artificial Intelligence 5G system.

People have become transmitters, transmitting all info about themselves back to the AI receiver.

From the database the Russian hacker exposed that tracks vaccinated people, the exact info of the firmware (version of transmitting software), CPU / processor info and type of mini processor / transmitter that is inside the person is also displayed.

There are microchips this small and nanotech is a real thing. Don’t believe it? Do a search on the internal hardware and how small it is for an Apple Watch or any small device.

20 years ago, would you believe we would have the capability to not only film 4k video on a small screen (smart phone), edit the video and publish it for the world to see, all on the same device?

Imagine the technology in use that we aren’t aware of.

If Vaccinated people are being TRACKED in real time, it’s all starting to add up.

  • Use MSM (Main Stream Media / lying news media) to spread FEAR (Covid)
  • Covid scare creates panic – everyone’s going to die – we’ve never seen a virus like this before
  • People look forward to a cure for something that will kill them all
  • A covid “vaccine” is created in “record time”
  • Covid “vaccine” is untested and not approved but governments push it through by deeming it an EMERGENCY
  • Thousands die after taking covid vaccine
  • Segregation between people on the mask issue
  • People feel pressured to take vaccine for fear of losing their jobs and what others think of them
  • The Covid “vaccine” is used to inject micro tech into test subjects
  • Test subjects are tracked in real time (those who didn’t die from taking the vaccine)
Was the magnets sticking to the arms of vaccinated people at the covid vaccine injection site real? If it is, it could be due to a tracking chip inside your body.

Did the government use COVID as a fear tactic to scare everyone into getting the jab in order to implant tracking chips?

That have to fly paper? Don't smell right. Besides the rothschilds are closer.






A Russian Internet news site Iskra (“Spark”) based in Zaporozhye, eastern Ukraine, reported on March 7, that“Ukraine’s gold reserves had been hastily airlifted to the United States from Borispol Airport east of Kiev”.

Ukraine’s Gold Reserves Secretly Flown Out and Confiscated by the New York Federal Reserve?

This alleged airlift and confiscation of Ukraine’s gold reserves by the New York Federal Reserve has not been confirmed by the Western media.

According to Iskra News:

At 2 a.m. this morning [March 7] an unmarked transport plane was on the runway at Borispol Airport (right) [east of Kiev]. According to airport staff, before the plane came to the airport, four trucks and two Volkswagen minibuses arrived, all the truck license plates missing.

Fifteen people in black uniforms, masks, and body armor stepped out, some armed with machine guns. They loaded the plane with more than 40 heavy boxes.

After that a mysterious man arrived and entered the plane.

All loading was done in a hurry.

The plane took off on an emergency basis.

Those who saw this mysterious special operation immediately notified the airport officials, who told the callers not to meddle in other people’s affairs.

Later a returned call from a senior official of the former Ministry of Revenue reported that tonight, on the orders of one of the new leaders of Ukraine, the United States had taken custody of all the gold reserves in Ukraine.” ??????? ????? ?? “?????????” ? ??? ?????????? ??????? ? ??????? ??????? ???????, iskra-news.info. Zaporozhye, Ukraine, March 7, 2014, translated from Russian by the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc (GATA), emphasis added)

Following this disclosure, GATA’s Secretary Treasurer Chris Powell requested the New Federal Reserve and the US State Department to indicate whether the NY Fed had “taken custody” of Ukraine’s Gold.

A spokesman for the New York Fed said simply: “Any inquiry regarding gold accounts should be directed to the account holder. You may want to contact the National Bank of Ukraine to discuss this report.”

GATA’s similar inquiry of last night to the U.S. State Department has not yet prompted any reply.

Last night GATA called this issue to the attention of about 30 mainstream financial journalists and newsletter writers in the admittedly bizarre hope that they might pose the question as well.

  1. The first rule of mainstream financial journalism and particularly financial journalism about gold is never to put a specific critical question about the monetary metal to any of the primary participants in the gold market, central banks. That is, nearly all gold market reporting is, by design, irrelevant distraction at best, disinformation at worst.
  2. The true location and disposition of national gold reserves are secrets far more sensitive than the location and disposition of nuclear weapons. Chris Powell, Secretary/Treasurer Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc.
While the unconfirmed report regarding Ukraine’s gold reserves has not been the object of coverage by the mainstream financial news, the story was nonetheless picked up by the Shanghai Metals Market at Metal.com. which states, quoting a report from the Ukrainian government, that Ukraine’s gold reserves had been “moved on an aircraft from … Kiev to the United States… in 40 sealed boxes” loaded on an unidentified aircraft.

No way to confirm any of it of course, but it wouldn't surprise me for a second. I spend most of my time watching what's going on in the fractional reserve silver pits at the LBMA/Crimex, though obviously nickel stole the show recently. I've also recently been rather surprised to note the volume of gold futures activity at the crimex of late.

1647176821494.png


This represents an all time high gold futures OI in terms of notional value(which includes gold price) in crimex history. Standing in the way of this commodity bull seems, to me at least, a good way to get run over.

It's no secret that the big banks like to short the metals with futures contracts. As physical supply to back those derivatives declines, it become more and more difficult to maintain the illusion of low prices.

Ukrainian gold reserves loaded on an unidentified transport aircraft in Kiev and flown to Uncle Sam’s vault ?​

March 10, 2014 by Jack Blood
Post Libya invasion – Most of the cash / gold was forfeited to Goldman Sachs etc (story here) This is after hustling Libyan Fund Managers for years…

Was The Price Of Ukraine’s “Liberation” The Handover Of Its Gold To The Fed?​


Tyler Durden's picture


Submitted by Tyler Durden on 03/10/2014 21:55 -0400
A curious story, and one which should be taken with a mine of salt, has surfaced out of the pro-Russian newspaper Iskra, which reports – so far on an entirely unsubstantiated basis – that last Friday, in a mysterious operation under the cover of night, Ukraine’s gold reserves were promptly loaded onboard an unmarked plane, which subsequently took the gold to the US.
From the source:


Tonight, around at 2:00 am, an unregistered transport plane took off took off from Boryspil airport.
According to Boryspil staff, prior to the plane’s appearance, four trucks and two cargo minibuses arrived at the airport all with their license plates missing. Fifteen people in black uniforms, masks and body armor stepped out, some armed with machine guns. These people loaded the plane with more than forty heavy boxes.
After this, several mysterious men arrived and also entered the plane. The loading was carried out in a hurry. After unloading, the plateless cars immediately left the runway, and the plane took off on an emergency basis.
Airport officials who saw this mysterious “special operation” immediately notified the administration of the airport, which however strongly advised them “not to meddle in other people’s business.”
Later, the editors were called by one of the senior officials of the former Ministry of Income and Fees, who reported that, according to him, tonight on the orders of one of the “new leaders” of Ukraine, all the gold reserves of the Ukraine were taken to the United States.

Indicatively, according to the latest IMF figures, Ukraine’s official gold holdings are just over 40 tons, having doubled in the past decade:
They been scrubbing scrubbing scrubbing but some stuff still out there. I believe I first read it on ZeroHedge.

Who needs gold reserves, when one can have foreign debt as reserves that can be wiped out by swift the second you piss off the wrong people?

Look at that...10y yield at a 3 year high.

"Strong" dollar(IE weaker euro) + higher rates = convenient excuse to pummel metals with the high frequency futures trading scam.

He'll soon wish price inflation had gone up by "only" 203% YoY.

Edit: The yen has had a tough week.

Down the road from the Kaczynski ranch
I needed a couple of 6v lantern batteries...for my emergency LED lanterns.

I had to hit THREE stores, to find any alkaline 6-volt square-shaped batteries! Batteries Plus just had the old dry-cell style...made by a Chinese company nobody ever heard about, that will disappear next week. They were labeled as **HEAVY-DUTY CARBON PILE BATTERY** Those of us who have a few decades behind us, know those are the old, cheap dry-cell batteries that work for a few hours, or last on the shelf maybe a year, and then leak and ruin the lantern or what it's in.

The kid at Batteries Plus didn't know that.

Ace Hardware. In some regions, Ace is a little storefront. Not here - the Ace franchisees built a huge hardware and plumbing supply outlet. Two, in town. Ace is the place - if no one else has it, they have it.

Not this time. The same no-brand brand that Batteries Plus was pushing, was on the rack; along with an Eveready non-alkaline. I know of those; that's what the railroad used to give out for trainmen to use in their lanterns. Dry cells. Cheap. Good for one eight-hour shift of darkness. If you only used the lantern four hours, say, second shift, and half in daylight...then it was a gamble, if the battery would fail before the next shift was over.

Eveready. Carbon-Pile Long-Life. Made in CHY-nuh. Chinese characters to prove it. I guess Union Carbide sold the brand to the CCP.

FINALLY found two Duracell alkalines. Yup...CHY-nuh. Again, Chinese characters on the outer metal jacket. Used to be a steel cladding; now it's Chinesium.

Duracell used to have a date on their alkaline batteries, very prominent, showing "Best if installed before" and the four-figure year. Advertising the long life of their batteries.

Not no more. The date is stamped, faintly, on the fiberboard bottom. Gawd knows if the battery will last that long.

The lazy American executives who've sold their businesses to CHY-nuh; because it's so much work to actually MAKE things...should be rounded up and TRIED FOR TREASON, they've done so much destruction to us all.

Nice takedown of the PMs ahead of the retail sales numbers. They naturally fell short of the 0.4 expected increase coming in at 0.3 due to...you guessed it...inflation. Import prices up 11% YoY...which will lead to even more price inflation. Meanwhile the dixy is falling out of bed this AM meaning more dollars will be necessary to import more expensive goods.

Yes, the US economy is completely fukked and people that think hodling a bunch of fiat crap are in for a rude awakening.

Edit: Look at that STRONG economy! Let's raise rates to the moon!

EXK getting whacked on apparent shareholder dilution concerns. Buying opportunity or justified sale price...time will tell. I'm not in there currently, but I may nibble while it's on sale.

So consumer price inflation is allegedly only 7.9% YoY, yet import prices(excluding shipping) are 10.9% YoY and US Export prices are 16.6% YoY. Somewhere in here after adjusting for forex differences the real rise in average prices is buried...and none of it bears any resemblance to the CPLie.

1647498117934.png


Also while import prices dropped significantly in Feb on a MoM basis, export prices continued galloping higher, which seems much more relevant as it pertains to manufacturing input costs domestically. The dixy was in a fairly tight range in Feb between 96.39 to 96.71 so those Feb numbers should be largely unaffected by recent dollar "strength" as it pertains to foreign trade.

All of this would seem to indicate that shadowstat's 1980 based CPI computation methodology is likely much closer to price inflation levels seen by Amerikans than the silly CPLie...just as most of us suspected.

metals actually got a good beating, maybe even a little further than I expected,

but all is good if they base off of that, as it was a higher low for sure

by the chart, it came back to what would a projected support, where it took out an old high,
all positive,
bled off a bunch of that overbought sentiment in the process

BB called oil on the nuts,

when it was making the top, said he was watching the charts and she had topped

told him I didn't think the actual top of the move was in yet, and I can surely be wrong on that
so we see

for now the decline has stopped at the 50 day, and we see if it takes a break then heads for lower levels,
which would be a sell the rallies move,

They may have also raised margins for traders, but I don't know that,
which they typically will when they are in panic mode and want to kill off some leverage,

That's a bit surprising, though I've been real estate shopping with a friend of late and we're always 5mins late to put in a bid...the stuff just vanishes. Three properties so far and every showing has been cancelled...because a cash buyer already scooped it up.

Sounds like more inflationary pressure coming if housing starts continue at a brisk pace. I wonder how long it will continue in the face of rising rates.

yep,

that stuff has been going on all over the country for a couple of years now at least, more like 3 or 4

the permit stat I do like, as that can be representative of something,

whereas a lot of the other stats are messed up due to what is uncompleted, in the channel waiting on something or whatever

don't know if is the same now, but assuming it is, but there is a lot of stuff started and waiting for various things,
I won't even get into the process of finding dirt and getting it through these hammerheads at .gov

real comforting to watch all these .gov 80s try to put together a coherent thought for or against something,

yet in their defense, they have created so many bogus parameters and rules that they have no idea of what is aok or not anymore as they can't keep up with them nor the complexity

The huge drop in the dollar has the metals and particularly producers flying. BAM!

So naturally TPTB are preparing to take down markets again with their newest regurgitated kung-flu scariant horseshit.


Guess Pfizer's veterinarian CEO called that one right with his illegal publicly issued medical advice.

Guess their Ukraine war crisis ratings are dropping.

I keep getting calls about my properties wanting to buy. Is this gates & co giving us the you will own nothing treatment because WE WILL OWN IT ALL & YOU ARE NOW OUR SERF'S?

Durable goods orders for February came in rather fugly. Seems the re-stocking is over. Quite a miss compared to expectations of a -0.5 decline(being 340% greater than expected). It's particularly ugly if defense spending is excluded. One would think that a couple readings like this and the fed will have to think long and hard about their gazillion allegedly planned rate hikes.

Gnarly! Yields on the 10y up 0.093 in a matter of minutes. That's a 3.94% increase in roughly half a freaking hour!

It looks like the usdx will rally a little bit more fake rally against zero euro. Oil and gold might be suppressed a little bit more. Oil prices have gone up sharply in India and poor are suffering. There is a huge gap between the haves and have nots and between several working class populations. Food prices are going up. However luckily there is a glut of some produce making people substitute for expensive food. The savings among poor is none to minimal and the government is forced to subsidize rice and essential commodities. The poor in India will not be able to tolerate price hikes and the government will be forced by political situation to buy the cheapest oil whether it is Iran or Russia, alternatively they might cause demand destruction by Imposing COVID scare after it gets better in China.

There is Uber rich billionaires Indians who have made it in real estate companies. The real estate in the big cities is destined for a collapse, but this is in suspended animation. Amazon has made significant inroads into e-commerce, that brick and mortar shops ares struggling to keep the doors open. Won’t be surprised if the local politicians are forced to tax the multinational companies as they are destroying the tax base. These multinational FANG companies are considered as the modern day East India company trying to loot in a different name.

Neighbour Pakistan is having its own political ,crises with the sacking of Cricketer Imran Khan. The elites and the military in that country are more than willing to sell the dreams of all Pakistanis so they can get rich or educated in western countries. Corruption is endemic in the while of subcontinent and that is encouraged by western interests for short term gains. The end result is a huge anti western sentiment and Talibanization of even moderate factions of the Islamic world.

China is having problems in relationships with Pakistan and srilanka. China can loan any amount of money , but unable to collect interest on the debt. China also needs all the markets to work for its economy growth. With COVID and this new Russian Ukraine war, everything is not working as planned.
