Silver Update 4/8/13 Silver Safety
17m5s “They are going to go after those people and strip their wealth. Of course the trillionaires and the real powerful families, of course no, their wealth is going to be safe. Their wealth has been hidden away many, many decades ago into foundations and all sorts of things that you’ll never find, including wealth in the Vatican and other things like that. So but I think they are going to target the middle, the very, very wealthy and strip their wealth and they will be supported by the masses when they do that”

Winner Takes All: The Super-priority Status of Derivatives
“Cyprus-style confiscation of depositor funds has been called the “new normal.” Bail-in policies are appearing in multiple countries directing failing TBTF banks to convert the funds of “unsecured creditors” into capital; and those creditors, it turns out, include ordinary depositors. Even “secured” creditors, including state and local governments, may be at risk. Derivatives have “super-priority” status in bankruptcy, and Dodd Frank precludes further taxpayer bailouts. In a big derivatives bust, there may be no collateral left for the creditors who are next in line.”
Your deposits will be thrown on the derivative bonfire.

Sinclair: Conflict Erupts As Elites Plan More Wealth Destruction
“Sinclair: “How in the world can Lagarde say that Cyprus is a one-off? The spreading of bail-in being written into Canadian law, New Zealand law, as well as in other countries, tends to indicate that what has been done in Cyprus is in fact a test case for further application. If it wasn’t, it was an economic act of war by Europe against Russia.””
Of course the wealth of the elite will not be destroyed, only everyone else’s wealth will be destroyed.

Jim Willie: US Economy Will Implode As Dollar Collapses!
“Dr. Willie says, “The world makes a reaction, and what they have done is create, slowly but surely, a U.S. dollar alternative for trade.” Dr. Willie’s sources say precious metals will be used to back a new currency and predicts, “The gold price will be $7,500 to $8,000, and silver will be between $150 and $250 per ounce.” This will be a disaster for U.S. Treasuries, and Jim Willie says, “All these Treasury Bonds will be sent back to the United States where they can choke U.S. bankers . . . they cannot refuse them.” Dr. Willie predicts “the economy will implode,” and he says, “I don’t believe we’re going to see garden variety powerful inflation. I believe, instead, we’re going to get large widespread cut-off of supply chains” as foreigners simply stop accepting the dollar. As far as dollar assets inside the U.S., expect widespread confiscation. Dr. Willie contends, “When the losses from the debt write-downs come, I see tremendous national wealth lost because private accounts are really just bank assets.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Jim Willie.”

Ron Paul Launches Home Schooling Program
“In a commentary piece released today, Ron Paul himself said “A common feature of authoritarian regimes is the criminalization of alternatives to government-controlled education.””
“North also notes that Paul’s program will use primary source documents only, rather than textbooks, which North says “are screened by committees” and “dumb down the material.” He also notes in a separate article that the Ron Paul program will not bend to state regulations which he considers to be “an illegitimate infringement on the right of parents to educate their children.””

Man with shotgun faces charges for killing unarmed bear in his yard
“Richard Ahlstrand told WBZ-TV he was stocking his bird feeder Friday night when a bear about seven feet tall and 300-to-400 pounds started chasing him.”
“Now the 76-year-old is facing charges of illegally baiting a bear, illegally killing a bear and illegal possession of a firearm. Ahlstrand believes his life was in danger and that he “wouldn’t be here” if he hadn’t fired his weapon, but environmental officers disagree.”
What the hell is illegally baiting a bear ?
Illegally killing a bear – I can’t wrap my brain cell around that one. The seven feet tall and 300-to-400 pound mountain was going to have this guy for lunch.
School in Conneticut Teaching Students ‘Americans Don’t Have Right to Bear Arms’
“The worksheet, published by Instructional Fair, goes on to say that the Second Amendment is not incorporated against the states. “This means that the rights of this amendment are not extended to the individual citizens of the states,” the worksheet reads. “So a person has no right to complain about a Second Amendment violation by state laws.””
So when the right to bear arms says ‘right of the people’ supposedly it doesn’t mean a person.

Turkey: Thousands protest Ergenekon trial proceedings
“Over the years, Ergenekon trials have moved beyond the judicial and political arena, and expanded to the streets. Thousands of pages of indictments, weapons and ammunition confiscated at various secret locations along with endless arrests — including military officers, politicians, journalists, and academicians – have divided Turkish people into two camps. Supporters of the Ergenekon trials believe that the suspects would have overthrown the ruling party, the Justice and Development Party-the AKP, if they had had a chance. Furthermore, if the organization called Ergenekon had not been exposed, a huge wave of political murders and terrorist attacks would have taken place as part of a plot through which the necessary pretext for a military intervention would have been created. For these people, the trials are a big step in the right direction for democracy.”

““(Cops) were kicking (Crichlow) in the face, stomping him, leaning on him with their knees,” said cousin Tyniera Hogan, 32. “He was trying to get up, but they kept pushing him back down . . . it didn’t look like he was resisting.””
The officers were beating Crichlow black and blue when Fields interjected.
Do the officers have the authority to beat someone black and blue ?
Pregnant mom charged with felony after trying to check an unloaded gun at the airport.
“Beth Arneson Ferrizzi legally checked her gun in her departure city, Fargo, North Dakota on a Delta Flight to La Guardia. She called Delta to find out how to do this legally. They told her the firearm had to be unloaded, stored in a hard sided and locked case. They told her the ammunition had to be stored separated. Not Separate from the gun, but separated, either in their original packaging or in a container that keeps the bullets from touching each other. She made sure it was exactly as Delta said.”
“The 29 year old pregnant mom has been charged with felony criminal possession of a loaded firearm and has a trial date set for the same time as her due date. She faces up to 15 years in jail. Now, you read that correctly. A “LOADED” firearm. Despite the fact that the gun was unloaded and locked up with the bullets stored in their own container. How could this be? In New York a firearm is considered loaded if the passenger is in possession of both bullets and a gun.”
Feds Identify 300,000 Americans as Terrorists
“Some are even labeled as non-violent “paper terrorists”.”
“The LA Times piece points to a handful of colorful examples of people who defended themselves against police aggression, or who were plain crazy, as to why the movement should be considered violent.”
“The most extreme sovereigns would certainly not adhere to the authority of any collective that aims to define them as a group. And just because one person who adopts this philosophy ends up shooting a cop, doesn’t mean all people who hate taxes or fight foreclosure are violent threats. To think otherwise smacks of a demonization agenda, nothing more.”
A handful vs 300,000.

WikiLeaks spokesman demands justice for ‘Collateral Murder’ victims
“The clip released by the whistleblower website WikiLeaks showcased the brutality of the Iraq War when an Apache Helicopter was caught firing at innocent citizens and journalists on the ground. The video was believed to help launch the end of the conflict, but instead the US government went after those involved with leaking the information including Private First Class Bradley Manning and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. WikiLeaks spokesperson Kristinn Hrafnsson explains how the victims are still seeking justice.”

Port Orange HOA Tells Residents Yard Statues Aren’t Allowed
“Norma Freiji (pictured above) was one of the first residents of the 13-year-old Ashton Lakes subdivision, and she said that she has always had yard art displayed. But now the HOA is asking all residents to remove statues in front and side yards. That means that cute figurines dotting many yards in the subdivision — pelicans, egrets, gnomes and even a basketball hoop affixed to a garage — must go. Homeowners received a letter recently from the HOA outlining the demands.”
A continual march into a world where everything will be ‘not allowed’.
