Writer and researcher Alasdair MacLeod from Gold Money joins us to discuss the situation in the Ukraine, and the Ukrainian gold bound for China (or Germany) by way of the United States. Alasdair notes that the Ukranian gold reserve is only 33 tons – which is less than ONE WEEK of demand by the Chinese pubic.
Alasdair says the western powers have been checkmated by China which has CORNERED the gold market and DRAINED western bullion bank vaults. Alasdair says that through 2013 the gold has been supplied by the Central Banks, but now “the vaults are empty and China knows this. Russia knows this.”
A groundbreaking new drug safety study published in the open access journal PLoS and titled, “Adverse Drug Reactions of Spontaneous Reports in Shanghai Pediatric Population,” has revealed for the first time that 42.5% of all reported adverse drug reactions occurring in 2009 in a Chinese pediatric population (Shanghai, population 17 million) were caused by vaccines, with reactions as severe as anaphylaxis and death.
The report carries unique gravitas insofar as the data was gathered through spontaneous reports of physicians (52.03%), pharmacists (24.27%) and other health care practitioners (15.46%), with only 2.52% coming from ‘consumers.’ Presumably, the clinical training of those reporting gives the study additional credibility.
According to the study, which is one of the first ever conducted on the topic in China, “Knowledge of drug safety in the pediatric population of China is limited. This study was designed to evaluate ADRs in children reported to the spontaneous reporting system (SRS) of Shanghai in 2009.”
The results of the study were reported as follows:
“A male overrepresentation was observed regarding the total number of reports. The most frequently reported group of drugs were vaccines (42.15%). Skin rash and fever were the commonest symptoms reported in the total pediatric dataset. The proportion of children that suffered from a serious ADR was 2.16% and that for drug related deaths was 0.34%. And we found that the multiple drug exposure experienced a high proportion of serious ADRs compared with the single drug use (χ215.99, P<0.0001). Sixty-five percent of ADRs were for children less than 6 years of age. And more than half of reports were from doctors.”

The tests are to be led by the China Meteorological Administration and carried out later this month at airports and ports, the Xinhua state news agency reported. The manufacturer, the Aviation Industry Corporation of China, has already carried out about 100 hours of test flights, Ta Kung Pao, a local media outlet, reported.
The drone has a paragliding wing, allowing the vehicle to carry three times more weight than the fixed-wing version.
700 kilograms of smog-clearing chemicals is the amount of anti-pollution substances the drone can carry, according to the chief executive of the Aviation Industry Corporation of China, Ma Yongsheng.
Also, Ma Yongsheng stressed that the vehicle was easy to control and land, making it suitable to use at airports and ports. Plus, the official said that the drone was not expensive to make and maintain.
Air pollution in parts of China a week ago was so extreme it could lead to conditions similar to a “nuclear winter,” scientists said.
$8 billion fund manager Eric Sprott says there is a big opportunity surfacing in precious metals. Sprott contends, “I’ve always believed there is more demand than supply for the last 14 years. I’ve documented it. I am suggesting the western central banks have very little gold left. I think the whole decline in the gold price is the liquidation in the ETFs to supply some of that shortfall. I think manipulation and relief from the manipulation and the ongoing demand, well in excess of supply, is going to power gold higher.”
On precious metal price manipulation, Sprott charges, “We seem to get more and more evidence of it all the time. The German equivalent to the SEC saying the possible manipulation to gold would be worse than LIBOR, and I think worse is a very important word here because there can’t be more money involved because LIBOR is way bigger than gold, but worse means the egregiousness of the price decline. Furthermore, we had another group come out and say the LBMA fixed the price . . . the price was manipulated 50% of the time.”
The high-stakes geopolitical poker game that began with the recent events in the Ukraine culminated in secret with cabal threats to have “Ukraine nuke Russia using US made nukes,” resulting in counter-threats to nuke Washington D.C., New York, Tel Aviv, Brussels and London, according to White Dragon Society sources involved in the negotiations. The cabal then scaled down the nuclear threats and instead threatened to create a “Rothschild ring of fire around China and Russia,” starting with “10 ‘Muslims’ killing 33 people on a train in China” and warning that “US funded attacks” will “sky rocket,” the sources said. This blustering is all a form of cabal table pounding and posturing for better treatment in their ongoing surrender negotiations.

Air pollution in parts of China is now so extreme it could lead to conditions similar to a “nuclear winter,” scientists say. The smog that covers the country has become so thick it is impeding photosynthesis, potentially disrupting China’s food supply.
China’s pollution problem is reaching crisis point, with acrid smog covering six southern provinces for the past week. Over the last few days a total of 19 cities have recorded levels of pollution drastically exceeding the World Health Organization’s (WHO) safety levels.
Beijing’s concentration of micro-particles small enough to enter into people’s lungs and trigger serious health issues reached 505 micrograms per cubic meter Tuesday. The WHO’s safe level is 25 micrograms per meter.
The toxic smog is having severe consequences, with aircraft being grounded across the country because of poor visibility, roads closing and a significant reduction in tourist numbers. An associate professor at China Agricultural University, He Dongxian, told the South China Morning Post that if these conditions continued, China will experience something akin to a “nuclear winter.”
Furthermore, she said an experiment in Beijing in recent months had shown a significant slowdown in photosynthesis (the process by which plants turn light into chemical energy). According to He Dongxian’s tests, chili and tomato seeds that usually take 20 days to sprout could take over two months to grow into seedlings. Continue reading
Did you know that financial institutions all over the world are warning that we could see a “mega default” on a very prominent high-yield investment product in China onJanuary 31st?
Transparency From China Coming To America: Half Of U.S. Stocks Are Counterfeit!
We are being told that this could lead to a cascading collapse of the shadow banking system in China which could potentially result in “sky-high interest rates” and “a precipitous plunge in credit“.
In other words, it could be a
“Lehman Brothers moment” for Asia.
And since the global financial system is more interconnected today than ever before, that would be very bad news for the United States as well. Since Lehman Brothers collapsed in 2008, the level of private domestic credit in China has risen from $9 trillion to an astounding $23 trillion.
That is an increase of $14 trillion in just a little bit more than 5 years.
Much of that “hot money” has flowed into stocks, bonds and real estate in the United States. So what do you think is going to happen when that bubble collapses?
The bubble of private debt that we have seen inflate in China since the Lehman crisis is unlike anything that the world has ever seen.
Never before has so much private debt been accumulated in such a short period of time. All of this debt has helped fuel tremendous economic growth in China, but now a whole bunch of Chinese companies are realizing that they have gotten in way, way over their heads. Continue reading
Financial newsletter writer, Dr. Jim Willie, has a bleak warning for America. Dr. Willie says, “I don’t think the United States is going to be killed as the host. I think it’s going to be bled to death and harvested for its organs, and done so by China.”
Dr. Willie explains, “The Chinese will drain this nation and all the Western nations of all their gold.” Dr. Williepredicts, “I have been saying steadily, not until the dollar has problems and the globe starts saying we’re not going to use it anymore, and we’re going to force a devaluation on you . . . that is when the dollar will hit Main Street and the U.S. economy with price inflation. It’s coming this year. . . .This is the late stage, the very late stage.”

Bitcoin faces a fresh obstacle in China as Alibaba,the country’s largest e-commerce group, will ban bitcoin transactions starting January 14.
Alibaba Group Holding Ltd’s Taobao, China’s largest online marketplace, will not allow any transactions of virtual currencies or related products, the Financial Times reports.
Alibaba Group, an internet group of e-commerce businesses that handled over $170 billion in sales in 2012, expects to hold an initial public offering later this year, and banning bitcoin and steering clear of the sale of counterfeit goods is seen as an extra precaution.
Banning the anonymous virtual currency will “promote the healthy development of the Taobao Marketplace and to more effectively protect the interests of Taobao members,” Alibaba said in a statement posted on its website on Tuesday.
Users will not only be barred from buying and selling bitcoins, but all related activities, including “mining” the currency, which is the creation of new bitcoins through solving complex logarithmic equations.
