Jim Willie joined TFMetalsReport this weekend for a special holiday podcast. In this excellent report from the Hat Trick Letter editor, Willie discusses:
- This week’s announcement by Gazprom that they will begin accepting payment in rubles and yuan
- The escalation of US and EU sanctions against Russia and how they are failing/backfiring
- Willie explains the US’ motives for provoking Russia via Ukraine: To entice Russia to prematurely move to place the Ruble into a reserve currency status, and ultimately, to blame Putin/Russia for the coming US dollar collapse!
- The growing isolation of the US as a economic superpower
- The eventual emergence of a new global currency regime & collapse of the dollar

There was quite an interesting headline in the news, which, to my great surprise, went almost completely under the radar, at the close of 2013. It was only picked up by a few small media outlets, and then was quickly dropped.
Nothing further was said, and no additional commentary was even given. I hope to remedy that today.
The headline was this: Russian banks buy up 181.4 tons of gold, in 2013.
Read that again, carefully.
Does it say, “Central Bank of Russia buys 181.4 tons of gold”?
No, it says that commercial Russian banks bought almost 90% of Russia’s gold production in 2013.

When one utilizes the axiom, “Follow the money,” all roads lead to the Rothschilds and their formula of gaining control of a nation’s money supply and then making all the rules. In the process of gaining control of a nation’s money supply, each country’s gold holdings were ransacked, and in the case of the US, the then world’s largest silver holdings were also stolen.
US Treasury Notes that were specie backed by silver and gold. After the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913, the privately owned Federal Reserve bank, began circulating Federal Reserve Notes that were also specie-backed, to circulate alongside US -issued Treasury Notes until the 1930s, when Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared a “bank holiday.” The US was forced into bankruptcy by the Rothschild elites, and the banks were reopened under direct control of the Federal Reserve central bank. What was little noticed was that the specie-backing of gold and silver for the Federal Reserve Noted were quietly withdrawn. At the same time, specie backed US Treasury Notes were withdrawn from circulation and destroyed!
The Rothschilds will not accept any competition. The first stage of the world’s largest Ponzi scheme succeeded. Next was the removal and eventual suppression of the price of gold, an ongoing activity by central banks.
Since the United States has been bled dry of all its gold and silver, and the fiat Federal Reserve Note has just about run its course as the world’s reserve “petrodollar” currency, the next grand prize is Russia.

Krugman says that the recent concern about “debts and deficits” was a “false alarm.” He attempts to paint those who were concerned about the debt crisis as scare mongers. He sarcastically says that “the debt apocalypse has been called off.” When it comes to the apocalypse, Krugman likes to have his apocalyptic cake and eat it too.
“I can say that Putin’s plane and the Malaysian Boeing intersected at the same point and the same echelon. That was close to Warsaw on 330-m echelon at the height of 10,100 meters. The presidential jet was there at 16:21 Moscow time and the Malaysian aircraft – 15:44 Moscow time,” a source told the news agency on condition of anonymity.
“The contours of the aircrafts are similar, linear dimensions are also very similar, as for the coloring, at a quite remote distance they are almost identical“, the source added.
Meanwhile, the WSJ reports that US Intelligence detected a surface-to-air missile launch and tracked the explosion of the plane, confirming that MH-17 was in fact shot down.
