Gold jumps again, could it lead to a unified European bond or a BRICS takeover?

The climb in gold prices doesn’t seem to be letting up any time soon. For the second day straight the price of gold has risen after a brief two day drop as the Eurozone crisis has no end in sight.

Gold for immediate delivery rose 0.6% to $1,844.98 per ounce while December delivery gained up to 1% to leave prices at $1,848.20 an ounce.[1]

The rise doesn’t seem to be reaching a ceiling any time soon, either.

The global head of currency strategies at RBS Securities Incorporated, Robert Sinche, toldBloomberg that since, “liquidity [is still] abundant in the global environment we do think gold probably still has some good risk-reward characteristics even at these levels.”

Governments from around the world seem to be reinforcing Sinche’s assessment, with some leaders like Chavez of Venezuela demanding physical delivery of a large portion of their foreign gold holdings.[2]

With Moody’s recent downgrade of the credit ratings of French Credit Agricole SA and Societe Generale, and BNP Paribas currently on review for a downgrade as well, the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis seems to be heading into even more dangerous territory.

It has now become so potentially dangerous that the Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and American President Barack Obama have both come out and voiced concern.

Obama said that “more effective coordinated fiscal policy” was required by European nations. What exactly this was, of course, he wouldn’t say.

I seriously doubt that any of the flawed economic solutions promoted in the past, such as the Keynesian stimulus so loved by Obama, would help this dire situation.

Wen said that China is “willing to help its biggest training partner,” while still emphasizing that the European countries “must stop the crisis from growing.”[3]

According to Reuters, credit markets are now estimating that there is a 90% chance of Greecedefaulting on their debt. We’ve seen the chaos in the streets in the wake of Greek governmental attempts to stave off default through austerity so this seemingly high figure might be quite accurate.[4]

To make matters worse for the highly unstable Eurozone, Italy’s debt crisis is likely going to be too significant for any outside rescue packages to save them from default seeing as their public debt is a whopping $1.9 trillion Euros and the public debt burden is roughly 120% of Italy’s GDP.

However, Reuters has reported that a source in the Italian ministry told them that Italy has been in talks discussing possible Chinese investments in the Italian industrial sector, but not their bonds.

This might be because credit markets are reportedly now demanding the highest risk premiumsince 1999 on five year Italian bonds.

Much pressure is now being put on Italy, as if they are the fulcrum in the Eurozone that could cause the total free-fall collapse of the European economy.

In response, the Italian government is pushing highly unpopular austerity measures, including a package that could cut up to $73 billion in deficits.

The Italian public is not having any of it as they quickly realized that the austerity plan, which was foisted on the nation by the European Central Bank, involved massive cuts to local government and other important sectors.[5]

It appears that China and other BRICS nations very well might be using this sovereign debt crisis to seize control of Eurozone debts.

In a speech at a Chinese meeting of the World Economic Forum, Wen said, “We’ve said countless times that China is willing to give a helping hand and we’ll continue to invest there.”

Wen would not provide any specifics on their plans.

Even Timothy Geithner, the Secretary of the Treasury, has tacitly showed his alarm over the Eurozone debt crisis by planning to attend a European Union finance minister meeting this Friday in Poland.

However, another possible solution aside from austerity measures and foreign involvement seems to be on the table as well.

Just minutes ago, European shares moved from their recent continual negative fall, to positive upon news that the Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission (the non-democratic body that dominates the EU), would be presenting options for a common European bond.[6]

If this plan works, it could provide a significant talking point to those seeking to create a unified world currency to supposedly avoid further debt crises.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
