History Repeats Itself and Why All Empires Fail


Why do some nations rise while others wither? Why have some of the world's largest empires eventually crumbled? What are the 'best practices' that a modern nation should follow if it desires sustainable prosperity for its citizenry?

To answer these questions, we welcome MIT professor Doran Acemoglu and co-author of the book Why Nations Fail. His observations? Yes, national prosperity has some correlation to the resources available to the State, but more importantly, it's determined by how those resources are put to productive and fair use.

Breaking - Secret Service Insiders Confirm: Hillary Suffers From Parkinson’s… Experiences Seizures From Camera Flashes

hillary-koo-koo

Several weeks ago the mainstream media began to paint a narrative of Donald Trump having mental issues and being unfit for the Presidency. Curiously, within a matter of days, stories began to emerge of bizarre behavior from Democrat Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. As it turns out it may be Clinton that is unfit for the Presidency.

From falls and difficulty climbing stairs to stage panic in the face of protest chants and nonsensical statements to her audience, something appears to be wrong with the former Secretary of State. In fact, even Hillary’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, noted in an email to a State Department employee that Hillary is “often confused.”

Now, according to Kit Daniels of Infowars, inside sources within the Secret Service are leaking information that appears to confirm what many already know:

Hillary Clinton apparently suffers from Parkinson’s or a similar disease and experiences seizures from flashing lights, such as camera flashes at press conferences, the Secret Service told Infowars.

Additionally, the federal government has reportedly spent nearly a quarter-million dollars to add handicap steps on government vehicles because Hillary struggles with balance, a fact already established by a Reuters photo showing two men helping Hillary up stairs.

The revelations explain her odd, epileptic behavior on camera and why she avoids press conferences in general.

Her health is deteriorating badly; over the past several months Hillary has suffered several seizures and near-comatose freeze-ups during speeches which,combined with her previous blood clot, concussions and severe coughing fits, reveal she’s hiding serious medical issues that jeopardize her ability to hold public office.

Sources inside the Secret Service initially contacted Infowars reporter Joe Biggs at the Republican National Convention and followed up with details about Hillary’s health out of respect for the public’s interest and national security.

Similarly, a law enforcement official told Breitbart that Hillary was late returning to a debate with Bernie Sanders due to a “flare up of problems from a brain injury.”

Hillary supporters will no doubt deny the claims and attempt to redirect the potential mental and physical issues back at trump, but it doesn’t change the fact that Clinton is publicly displaying symptoms of neurological problems stemming from a previous brain injury.
Most recently, Clinton completely lost her train of thought and “short-circuited” in the midst a loud reaction from a crowd.

Today Is the 45th Anniversary of The Most Destructive Event In Modern Monetary History

The US government, bankrupt yet again after another disastrous war of aggression, had its back pushed to the wall in 1971.

Up until that point, foreign central banks could redeem US dollars directly with the US Treasury in exchange for gold. And, recognizing that the US was essentially bankrupt, foreign central banks, especially France, began to demand gold instead of the dollar.

And then, on August 15, 1971, Richard “I’m Not A Crook” Nixon announced the monetary shot heard around the world.



He announced that due to the shadowy and intangible “money speculators” he would “defend” the dollar by removing its convertibility into gold “temporarily”.

It was, unquestionably, the most destructive event in modern monetary history… yet hardly anyone remembers it or knows about it.

Prior to 1971, the US government and Federal Reserve were restricted in the amount of debt they could go into and the amount of money it could print.

Afterwards, everything changed.

When discussing how massive of an event it was I often show long term historical charts on the market and the economy. Notice, EVERYTHING changed in 1971… and not for the better.

Is Gold Set to Hit $5,000, $10,000 Or More Per Ounce? Maybe?


Rising macroeconomic risks, low real interest rates, and a decline in the dollar versus emerging market currencies are major price catalysts for gold.

Jack Hanney, Senior Partner of PATRIOT Gold Group, explains what would have to happen for gold to hit $5,000, $10,000 or more per ounce. Keep in mind that this year alone we have seen a 25% increase in the yellow metal, and many analysts feel that there is still plenty of steam left in this rally.

John Embry: Explosive Move In Silver Will Dwarf Silver's Move In The Late 1970's


The Shadow of Truth hosted John Embry to discuss the coming chaos in geopolitics and the markets, especially in the precious metals. That podcast is posted below.
I can make the case, Dave, gold and silver may never have been cheaper than they are at the bottom in this cycle compared to the amount of money, and particularly debt, in the world. So, to me, this move we’ve had so far this year is, it’s like a rounding error. – John Embry, Shadow of Truth

It’s becoming more apparent on a daily basis that the Federal Reserve is attempting to exert complete control over the markets. The Federal Reserve operates from its NY Fed trading base in conjunction with the U.S. Treasury’s Exchange Stabilization Fund, which operates in the same building as the NY Fed. So much for the notion that the Fed operates independently of the Government.

But it’s not just the markets. It’s becoming more apparent to more people that same cadre of insider elitists who are rigging the stock market also do their best to rig the political process. This is exemplified by the fact that the SEC announced yesterday that it is investigating the accounting methods of Alibaba. This is eyebrow-raising because it’s quite obvious that Alibaba’s chief competitor, Amazon.com, has been engaging in fraudulent accounting practices for over two decades.

Oh, I forgot to mention that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns the Washington Post. This is the perfect political hand grenade with which to threaten the DC politicians and political appointees if they were to start probing around Bezos and his enormous business Ponzi schemes.

This insider DC establishment did its best to derail Trump’s attempt at assuming the Oval Office throne. But the fact that Trump set a record for Primary popular votes made it next to impossible for the elitists to plausibly justify perverting the Republican convention nomination process with one of its lap-dogs like Romney or Rubio.

On the other hand, it looks like Hillary’s three decade crime spree is finally starting catch up to her. Something happened behind “the scenes,” because all of a sudden the State Department’s Inspector General decided that Hillary broke the law. This is the first time in Hillary’s history that any official entity has held her accountable for a list of crimes that date back to her days as an attorney and the State of Arkansas’ “First Lady” (I use the term “Lady” very loosely). Even MSNBC was on her case today. Some group of unidentified insiders who operate at a level above Hillary have decided she’s not the one to be their Oval Office pawn.

What You Need to Know About BREXIT - The Full Documentary


BREXIT THE MOVIE spells out the danger of staying part of the EU. Is it safe to give a remote government beyond our control the power to make laws? Is it safe to tie ourselves to countries which are close to financial ruin, drifting towards scary political extremism, and suffering long-term, self-inflicted economic decline?

BREXIT THE MOVIE shows a side of the EU they don't want us to see: the sprawling self-serving bureaucracy, the political cynicism, the lack of accountability, the perks, the waste, the cronyism, the corruption.

BREXIT THE MOVIE cuts through the patronizing intellectualism of the noble, higher goals of 'Project Europe', to reveal the self-interestedness of the political-bureaucratic class which runs and benefits from the EU.

BREXIT THE MOVIE highlights the danger of becoming a prisoner in an insular, backward-looking Fortress Europe. And it explores the exciting opportunities that open up to us when we look beyond the narrow confines of the EU.

BREXIT THE MOVIE looks to the future, arguing forcefully and persuasively that it is safer and wiser to live in a country which is free, independent, self-governing, confident and global.

A Financial Breakdown is Going to Send Gold Soaring

"At a minimum gold will rise to $3,000. A more likely scenario, however, is that the world's financial system will break down completely. In that case, gold will rise as high as $10,000 to $40,000 - a point at which all credit - paper will be backed by gold."
