History: Federal Government - Massacred 297 Women, Children and Men, while confiscating weapons to disarm the people in the United States in 1890!

The Federal Government has confiscated guns in the past.  In fact they massacred 297 Women, Children and Men while confiscating the guns, most were women and children (200).  Besides that, they were there to take all guns and then put the people on trains to take them to a 'camp' for their safety!   

Have you ever heard of Wounded Knee?




The Federal government went to the Lakota land to confiscate all the guns the Indians had.  500 of the 7th Calvary surrounded the camp of the Lakota consisting of 350 people.

I received this email from someone about Wounded Knee.  I have not been able to find out if the person got it off the internet or wrote it himself.  I am inserting it here and when/if the person gets back to me with a link and says it was off a website, I link put the link in.
Edit to add:  He sent me the link of where he got the below information that was written from the internet. 




A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY TO THINK ABOUT.......December 29, 2012 marked the 122nd Anniversary of the murder of 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota . These 297 people, in their winter camp, were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection”. The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. The Calvary began shooting, and managed to wipe out the entire camp. 200 of the 297 victims were women and children. About 40 members of the 7th Cavalry were killed, but over half of them were victims of fratricide from the Hotchkiss guns of their overzealous comrades-in-arms. Twenty members of the 7th Cavalry's death squad, were deemed “National Heroes” and were awarded the Medal of Honor for their acts of [cowardice] heroism.

We hear very little of Wounded Knee today. It is usually not mentioned in our history classes or books. What little that does exist about Wounded Knee is normally a sanitized “Official Government Explanation”. And there are several historically inaccurate depictions of the events leading up to the massacre, which appear in movie scripts and are not the least bit representative of the actual events that took place that day.

Wounded Knee was among the first federally backed gun confiscation attempts in United States history. It ended in the senseless murder of 297 people.

Before you jump on the emotionally charged bandwagon for gun-control, take a moment to reflect on the real purpose of the Second Amendment, the right of the people to take up arms in defense of themselves, their families, and property in the face of invading armies or an oppressive government. The argument that the Second Amendment only applies to hunting and target shooting is asinine. When the United States Constitution was drafted, “hunting” was an everyday chore carried out by men and women to put meat on the table each night, and “target shooting” was an unheard of concept. Musket balls were a precious commodity and were certainly not wasted on “target shooting”. The Second Amendment was written by people who fled oppressive and tyrannical regimes in Europe, and it refers to the right of American citizens to be armed for defensive purposes, should such tyranny arise in the United States.

As time goes forward, the average citizen in the United States continually loses little chunks of personal freedom or “liberty”. Far too many times, unjust gun control bills were passed and signed into law under the guise of “for your safety” or “for protection”. The Patriot Act signed into law by G.W. Bush, was expanded and continues under Barack Obama. It is just one of many examples of American citizens being stripped of their rights and privacy for “safety”. Now, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is on the table, and will, most likely be attacked to facilitate the path for the removal of our firearms, all in the name of “our safety”.
Before any American citizen blindly accepts whatever new firearms legislation that is about to be doled out, they should stop and think about something for just one minute-
Evil does exist in our world. It always has and always will. Throughout history evil people have committed evil acts. In the Bible one of the first stories is that of Cain killing Abel. We cannot legislate “evil” into extinction. Good people will abide by the law, and the criminal element will always find a way around it.

Evil exists all around us, but looking back at the historical record of the past 200 years, across the globe, where is “evil” and “malevolence” most often found? In the hands of those with the power, the governments. That greatest human tragedies on record and the largest loss of innocent human life can be attributed to governments. Who do the governments always target? “Scapegoats” and “enemies” within their own borders…but only after they have been disarmed to the point where they are no longer a threat. Ask any Native American, and they will tell you it was inferior technology and lack of arms that contributed to their demise. Ask any Armenian why it was so easy for the Turks to exterminate millions of them, and they will answer “We were disarmed before it happened”. Ask any Jew what Hitler’s first step prior to the mass murders of the Holocaust was - confiscation of firearms from the people.

Wounded Knee is the prime example of why the Second Amendment exists, and why we should vehemently resist any attempts to infringe on our Rights to Bear Arms. Without the Second Amendment we will be totally stripped of any ability to defend ourselves and our families




What is disgusting is 20 Medal of Honors were awarded for those involved in the massacre of Wounded Knee!

To prove that lies are told - even the History channel says 150 people died that day, instead of 297.  They simply say it was the 'Final Battle' between the Indians and Federal government.   I guess they don't believe "The truth will set you Free."

At least PBS has a blurb about it and has the truth of what happened:

Site of the last official battle in the Indians wars, Wounded Knee Creek was a convenient place for the Seventh Cavalry to disarm Big Foot's band during the Lakota Ghost Dance "uprising" in 1890. But then a shot rang out, and some 300 Lakota were gunned down. Eighteen members of the Seventh Cavalry, avenged for its loss at the Little Bighorn, received the Medal of Honor. 


The Truth and point of this.... is the Federal government will do what they need to do to push their agenda through.  They have done it in the past, murdering all who got in their way of gun confiscation.

The Federal government felt it was their right to disarm the Indians.

Now.... We are the Indians, to the Federal Government!  They want us disarmed for our 'safety'.

I can tell you, I have stopped to talk to military personnel a few times and I always ask them this question...."Will you follow orders to disarm and confiscate the weapons from the American People, or will you follow the Constitution of which you took an Oath for?"

I have been shocked at the responses I receive.  So far I have only received one person say "I would not follow orders."  The rest of them say "I have to do what my superior says to do.  I have to follow orders no matter what they are."  One soldier, went as far to say "I had to follow orders to go into this one village, though I did not want to."  He did not elaborate of what happened at that village, but it was in Afghanistan.

That means, those of us who think the military will not confiscate weapons from the American people are 'dead' wrong!  Go ahead and stop a soldier and question him/her about it, you will find the same results I did.... The majority will follow orders!

That is why we all have to STAND UP NOW!

The Federal government has their agenda and they are not going to stop until they accomplish it.  Wounded Knee proved that.  They were there to disarm and confiscate weapons and murdered 297 people while doing so.



A Native American Band - Redbone wrote a song about it. It was number one in Europe but the song was banned in the U.S. - Wounded Knee




Johnny Cash wrote and sang about it too - Big Foot



Buffy Sainte-Marie song - Bury my heart at wounded knee



A punk rock group did a song about it Five Iron Frenzy - The Day We Killed (Crazy Horse)- I am not a punk rocker, but this song does say a lot. The lies - no remorse - it is all about Wounded Knee.

WTF - Seriously? The Sandy Hook/Newtown Shooting - NASCAR # 26

Michael Waltrip, drove the No. 26 Sandy Hook School Support Fund Toyota during practice for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on February 16, 2013 in Daytona Beach, Florida.


Michael Waltrip has raced a Sandy Hook NASCAR in the Daytona 500. 
There is a whole story on why the car was created and how NASCAR people met in Newtown with the crying people and so on and wanted to help them raise money.  It is all at the link.


I am simply appalled!  The amount of exploitation of the Sandy Hook shooting is ridiculous.   I have never seen any tragedy before where every single person (families, town, school, etc) is asking for money.  There are donation pages from the family for every victim.  There are charities set up with all different types of organizations raising money for Sandy Hook.

I would like to know What are they doing with the money raised?  Where is it going?  Why are well to do families asking for money due to the death of their child?  How much money have they raised and who is it benefiting from it?  I do know from my research that Newtown was in financial trouble before Sandy Hook.  I assume now they are doing great.  Plus you have people like Joe Lieberman who is in charge of the money raised for Newtown through United Way.   Are they using the money for gun control lobbying or political purposes?

I don't understand why people would give money to any of the organizations or families either.  Something as sad as losing a child is not what people should use to try and 'get rich' over.  I would think instead of constantly asking for money, they should ask for prayers and God's hand in watching over them and their children who were shot.  It would be a time of prayer for me not putting my hand out for money if a horrid tragedy struck as Sandy Hook.

I guess this is to be a constant in your face of all the fans of NASCAR who are pretty much Constitutional and law abiding citizens that utilize the 2nd amendment!   Is the psychology for them to want those watching the car go round and round to give up their rights over seeing the Sandy Hook car constantly?

What is happening is really is over the top in everything regarding Sandy Hook.

I still have not made up my mind that Sandy Hook was a hoax or not.  The whole thing is so confusing.   But seeing this NASCAR makes me upset over how one side is using it and dancing on the graves of the children to try and get their gun control agenda pushed through and raise a lot of money over.

What do NASCAR fans think of this car?

It does not say if the car will continue racing throughout the NASCAR circuit.  It does say that 7 crying families were at the meeting and then the cries became smiles when they heard about the car.   Funny, I never saw tears from any of the families when they were interviewed.

Portion from link:


“Following the meeting, Mike sat me down and said that he had an idea of running the 26 car in the Daytona 500 to represent the 20 children and six adults who had lost their lives in the tragedy back in December in Newtown, Connecticut.
“He asked me to think about whether or not we could be a part of it at Swan Racing, and I told Mike that, as long as my sponsors were on board, ‘We’re in,’ ’’ Davis said.
So instead of running the No. 30 Toyota driven by David Stremme, Swan Racing will field the No. 26. Waltrip said his own Toyotas at Michael Waltrip Racing will also bear the same “Newtown to 80888’’ decal.
A week before the car was unveiled and NASCAR’s charitable drive was made public, a contingent of NASCAR officials that included Helton, Davis, Waltrip and NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France flew to Newtown, Conn., and held an emotional meeting in private with town officials, first responders, and several of the families of the victims to share their plans.
“When we walked into that room, and seven of the families that lost children in that shooting were sitting on the front row looking at you, first of all, that was very hard to keep your composure,’’ Waltrip said. “But as we spoke, those crying faces turned to smiles.
They’re huge NASCAR fans up in that part of the country, and they got to realize that they’re going to have a car in the Daytona 500 and it lit ’em up. It made me so proud that I was there to be part of such a special announcement.’’
But Waltrip said the meeting left a lasting impression on him. “I walked into their world, spent three hours there, and walked out, but I left part of me there,’’ he said.
France said he was similarly moved by the meeting, so much so he and his wife Amy pledged $50,000 to jump-start the campaign. France said his family’s donation would be matched by The NASCAR Foundation.

Yes, I sound cynical about the whole thing.  At this point to me, the Sandy Hook tragedy has turned into a circus of asking for money from the public and yet there has never been one word of where it goes.  Except we know the families are asking for themselves.   The amount of obvious agenda influencing from the tragedy is extreme.   This NASCAR obviously is targeting all pro 2nd amendment people at the races and watching on T.V.  
Are they expecting people to feel guilt? 
To me the harder they push their agenda in this way, the harder we need to push back! 

Edit to add: I found a video about the car and Waltrip talking about it:




another edit to add:

NRA got a memo that details Obama's agenda for guns.  It involves complete gun confiscation and items listed that Obama has never even mentioned as part of his gun grab.   He wants all guns off the street and gun registration! 

Back door gun registration including Private Sale background checks, Close to deal in the Senate. Why Mental Health can not be part of gun control (my personal story).


What is essentially a back door universal gun registration is getting close to a deal in the Senate.  It is for background checks even for private sales and includes a record kept of gun sales. 

This is their first step to what we have all been fighting against.   By requiring universal background checks and then a record of all gun sales from one citizen to another, they would be getting what they want in D.C.

They put out the extremes of gun control in the beginning for people to then accept "lesser" controls, no doubt.   The psychology of "we are going to take it all away, to then get you to allow what we really want"... Universal gun registration.

We need to make sure our Senators vote NO on this!

Obama's Executive Order of gun control signed on January 16th, IS gun control and can stop everyone from their 2nd amendment rights.


Obama's 23 Executive Actions On Gun ViolenceThe President is announcing that he and the Administration will: 2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system. ... 14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence. ... 16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes. 17. Release a letter to health-care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law-enforcement authorities.... 20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental-health services that Medicaid plans must cover. 21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges. 22. Commit to finalizing mental-health-parity regulations. 23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health (1/16).

Understand the Mental Health part of Obama's Executive Order of gun control, sounds good on the surface to the general public.  But there is actually a very big problem with it.

By having medical records to be part of gun background checks is another form of taking away our 2nd amendment by not allowing people to buy a gun.   Let me tell you, my story about what I thought was just an innocent comment to a doctor I had been going to for over 10 years.  I trusted the doctor and one time in his office, I made a simple comment, not knowing he was writing it all down and I thought I was telling a 'friend'. I made an innocent statement when he asked me how everything was going in my life.  I said "I am down and depressed about my financial situation at the moment."

A couple of years later I got new health insurance.  After having the insurance for almost 2 years, I got a letter from them.  They were dropping me as if I never had insurance with them at all, so any medical expenses they had paid out, I needed to pay them back  (It ended up where they had to pay me money for that time).  The reason why they were dropping me?  Because that doctor/friend had written down and gave the insurance company the information, I was 'depressed' that one time in his office.  The health insurance company, said "It was a pre-existing depression condition I had not disclosed on my application of insurance."   I was appalled needless to say!  One statement, made to my doctor about that moment in time in my life of having financial difficulties, became a  'permanent mental condition' in the mind of the insurance company.

Do you see what I am getting at?  Doctors would disclose any comment or statement you have ever said to them that was innocent or you thought was in confidentiality.   So, due to that time of being down about financial worries, I became un-insurable as a 'mentally depressed' person.

Now, imagine our 2nd amendment rights being based on 'mental health'!  This is another backdoor gun control for all the people.   They would search records and is there any doubt they could find something on every single person? They then could say "You aren't allowed to have a gun nor rights to the 2nd amendment"   They would especially do this against our returning soldiers.  I have no doubt they would constantly put them as having PTDS and not allowing our troops to have gun rights in the country they have defended.

There is no doubt that everyone has felt down at one time or another regarding a situation in their lives.  Doctors ask about it too.  They want to push 'anti-depressant' drugs on everyone, so they may casually ask "How is everything going in your life?"  If you have ever said "Things are not that great right now and I am a little down about ______ (what ever it may be)."  You may have just stopped being allowed to exercise your 2nd amendment and the doctor could have put down "depression" next to your name.

 People may have also innocently mentioned to a doctor about being angry about something in their lives with a phrase of "I was so angry, I could just kill _____."  Think about how you use the word 'kill' when saying how angry you are about something.  It is a word people use all the time, it is an expression and people don't mean it literally.   But, if you were ever angry about something and mentioned it to your 'doctor/friend' and used the word 'kill' as part of a phrase, then you may possibly never be allowed to own a gun.

Do you see where I am going with this?  Having doctors report your information and records as being part of gun control is complete gun control and anything you may have ever said for that moment in time in your life, will be used against you.

All the bills being created or possibly being compromised on is part of actually getting our 'Rights to Bear Arms' taken away through back door laws.   They all sound, good and reasonable but we already know from history what the government actually does with 'good and reasonable' laws.  They don't stop because they actually have the agenda to get guns out of the American public's hands.

Gun owners are being treated as 'sex offenders' in the media.  Remember what the newspaper in N.Y. did, by releasing an interactive map of where each gun owner lives.   The children of today are being taught 'guns are no good.'  They are trying to create a whole generation that will not have guns in the future.  They are not teaching them that "Guns are our Right and our Forefathers made sure we would have that right always, to defend ourselves against tyranny."

Small portions of 'The Senate agreement'



A bipartisan group of senators is on the verge of a deal that would expand background checks to all private firearms sales with limited exemptions, but significant disagreements remain on the issue of keeping records of private gun sales, according to aides familiar with the talks.
An agreement would be a bold first step toward consideration of legislation to limit gun violence in the wake of the mass shootings at a Connecticut elementary school in December and comes as the Senate Judiciary Committee is expected this week to begin considering new proposals to limit gun violence.
The talks, led by two Democrats and two Republicans, are expected to earn more GOP support in the coming days and likely enough to move the bill through the Senate, according to senior aides of both parties who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
“These negotiations are challenging, as you’d expect on an issue as complicated as guns,” the chief negotiator, Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), said in a statement Saturday. “But all of the senators involved are approaching this in good faith. We are all serious about wanting to get something done, and we are going to keep trying.”  


Obama and the D.C. gun grabbers met last week behind closed doors to arrange how they will go forward in getting gun control.

   ANNAPOLIS, Md.—With a big to-do list at the start of his second term, President Barack Obama is trying to sell Democrats on his strategy for tackling immigration, gun control and a host of fiscal dilemmas.Obama met behind closed doors for more than two hours Wednesday with lawmakers from his own party at the Senate Democrats' annual retreat at a hotel in Annapolis, Md. House Democrats will hear from Obama at their annual retreat Thursday in Lansdowne, Va.

Gun Control advocate groups are now planning town hall type meetings around the country.  They are going to start pushing the agenda in a big way to the American public.  We already know the main stream media is behind gun control all the way.  It is from our grass root efforts and the Pro 2nd amendment lobbying groups (NRA, GOA, and other gun rights groups) and our pressuring our own elected officials to stand by our Constitution and Bill of Rights, will we keep our Freedoms.

People simply need to look at the bills deeper to understand that they are essentially complete gun control and would take guns out of the public's hands.

The unconstitutional Executive Order by Obama that links mental health to our Rights to Bear Arms, needs to be wiped out.  That Executive Order is unconstitutional besides violating people's rights to privacy and the rights of our medical records staying out of the hands of the Federal Government, for abuse and mis-use!

My story about Health Insurance is completely true.  A local paper even wrote about it when I had to go to Thailand for my medical needs due to not being able to afford it in the U.S.

EDIT to Add 6 pm:

NRA got a memo that details Obama's agenda for guns.  It involves complete gun confiscation and items listed that Obama has never even mentioned as part of his gun grab.   He wants all guns off the street and gun registration!

David Morgan Interview "Hold On" - Unlimited Paper Silver but limited Physical Silver

David Morgan of Silver-Investor and the Morgan Report did an interview with Elli Martin Report, about the smashing of Silver over the last few days.

Besides the interview, David and I spoke on the phone yesterday about the smashing of the metals.
One thing he said clear and firmly to me:

"They have unlimited Paper in the Silver market.  But there is limited actual physical silver!  They can play the game but it will catch up with them when the physical silver depletes.  When will that be?  Who knows.  But it will happen, when they pressure the markets as they do with paper."

I interviewed David last year about the psychology of crushing the metals market and what it does to people who believe in the metals.  The link has the same video I am inserting here at the bottom, but it also has the complete transcript of the interview, in case you want to read it, besides listening to it.

 David's interview with Elli Martin



My interview of David - last year





FYI - check out Ebay and the Silver Bullet Silver Silver Shield coins, they have sold (completed listings) anywhere from $45+ to $125 each.   The banker coin, which is no longer available is selling at $100 to $125 easily on ebay.    Though some listings have outrageous prices on them at $500 plus for one coin, those have not sold.

Now is the time to buy both gold and silver with the paper prices low.


China Military cyber attacks from U.S., Implies U.S. Government behind it. U.S.



China's Defense Minister has implied that the U.S. is behind the cyber attacks on Chinese military computers.   He stated the cyber attacks are coming from U.S. IP addresses.   It was also implied the U.S. is creating their own cyber attacks for an increase in military and cyber security forces (internet control).

U.S. secret flights to North Korea with equipment. Threatened Japan, when they found out and asked about it.

All the rhetoric that happens around the world with the U.S. threatening one country or another is most likely all bullsh**.  The U.S. is most likely working with the dictators behind the scenes, except for those they want out now (Syria).

Why do I say that?

The U.S. secretly flew into North Korea last year, providing them with equipment, besides who knows what else (nuclear secrets/bombs?).

Not just that, when Japan figured it out.... this administration threatened Japan and their relations with Washington D.C.!

At the end of the article linked, they "suppose" why the U.S. secretly flew into North Korea.  They said it was "For getting the remains of soldiers from the Korean war."  Give me a break, if that was the reason that information would be all over the U.S. media.  I remember in the 80's the constant news about the U.S. wanting to recover the bodies of soldiers from the Vietnam war.  It was a big deal and was all we heard about for months with them negotiating for the bodies.

What is absolutely outrageous is the U.S. has been giving a horrible dictator equipment and help in who knows what ways.   A dictator that does not allow the people to be free in the least and kills them besides starving them to death.

The same online news site has an article about how Japan knows that the U.S. is holding back information about North Korea's nuclear tests from it's allies, by giving limited or bad data to them.

North Korean camp


North Korea last year made a statement about U.S. and the people's right to own guns.  Needless to say they said "It is evil, for people to own guns in the U.S. because people kill other people with them."  The statement says "The people should not have that right and guns should be controlled."  You really have to laugh, because of course a dictator would say that.  Guns threaten those who want to completely control the people, that is why they have to be taken away.

North Korea has death Gulags/camps where they have an estimated 150 thousand people imprisoned.   Google just released maps of NK with locations of death camps this last month.

We have a right to know along with all other countries what the U.S. is sharing and giving to North Korea.  There are UN resolutions against North Korea and the U.S. had labeled them "Axis of Evil."  


Here are sanctions against North Korea and what is banned from any country trading with them:


  • Embargo on arms and related materiel
  • Ban on exports of certain goods and technology listed by the UN
  • Prohibition of procurement of arms, related material and other goods and technology listed by the UN
  • Ban on provision of certain services
  • Ban on exports of luxury goods
  • Restrictions on admission
  • Freezing of funds and economic resources
  • Commitment to take cooperative action to prevent illicit trafficking in nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, ballistic missiles and their means of delivery, related materials and technology
  • Ban on import and purchase of goods and technology listed by the UN
  • List of goods and technology subject to ban on exports and imports (other than luxury goods)



When Japan, a friend and ally figures out that the U.S. is flying into North Korea, they threaten them and the relations between them?   That is unacceptable!  North Korea is just across the Sea of Japan from Japan and they have a right to know if NK is receiving help from the U.S.  and what the U.S. is providing North Korea.


Seems to me, the U.S. now needs to answer to the UN as they have obviously broken the UN sanctions by providing equipment to NK.  The U.S. has become the world bully, which is obvious since the U.S. administration threatened Japan over their secret flights to NK, though I doubt a word will be said about it at the UN.

I don't hold any illusions that the U.S. media will mention these secret flights and threats made to Japan.   What is the U.S. getting out of the secret flights/meetings with North Korea?

North Korea threatened South Korea with "Final Destruction" at the UN. 


Article about the secret missions:


Senior U.S. administration officials held secret talks in North Korea on at least three occasions in 2011 and 2012, The Asahi Shimbun has learned.
Although the visits had potential implications for Japan, Washington did not inform its security partner at the time and only informally confirmed one of them when the Japanese side pressed, government and other sources in Japan, South Korea and the United States said.
The U.S. State Department even warned the Foreign Ministry against making further inquiries, saying they would harm bilateral relations, the sources said.
U.S. military planes flew from an air base in Guam to Pyongyang and back on April 7, 2012, and again on a longer visit lasting from Aug. 18-20, the sources said.
It is believed that those aboard included Sydney Seiler, director for Korea at the U.S. National Security Council, and Joseph DeTrani, who headed the North Korea desk at the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence. DeTrani left the post in May.
They met with North Korean officials and discussed policies following the death of leader Kim Jong Il in December 2011.
The North Korean delegation included Jang Song Thaek, vice chairman of the National Defense Commission and husband of Kim Jong Il's sister. Jang is widely considered to serve as a mentor for Kim Jong Un, who succeeded his father as his nation's leader.
The Japanese government only learned about the flights after receiving reports from hobbyists monitoring activity at military bases and also analyzing air traffic flight plans.
When the Japanese side submitted an official inquiry, U.S. officials expressed frustration that the request had been made, citing the subject's confidential nature. The State Department warned Japan against inquiring further, saying Washington-Tokyo ties could be damaged.
The third visit that The Asahi Shimbun has confirmed is one that took place in November 2011. Sources said at least one military aircraft from the Guam air base loaded heavy equipment, including bulldozers, at Yokota Air Base in western Tokyo and flew to Pyongyang.
It is believed that the delegation included officials from the U.S. Pacific Command. They met with North Korean officials and discussed efforts to recover the remains of U.S. soldiers killed during the 1950-53 Korean War, the sources said.
When Japan inquired about this visit, U.S. officials unofficially confirmed that it had taken place, the sources said.

China increasing Saudi Arabia oil imports by 11% in 2013. Joint 10 Billion venture in Saudi Red Sea Coast. London begins Swaps of Yuan.



I have been keeping my eyes on China.  I believe watching what is happening there will give us a clue when the dollar will be dropped for the Yuan as the Global Reserve Currency.  I also believe it is due to Saudi Arabia staying with the dollar as oil trade (Petrol Dollar) as the reason why the dollar is still the official reserve currency. 

Ever since the 2008 crisis, China has been positioning itself and it's currency to be the Global Reserve Currency.  The BRICS began trading in the Yuan between themselves last year.   Australia is trading with China in the Yuan.   China does things slowly but surely.

I have been writing about China and what they are doing the last couple of weeks.  From the expectation of their demand for gold outstripping the supply by 2015,  IMF using the words and confirming "Global Reserve Currency" for the Yuan, and China, itself using the words "Global Reserve Currency" for the Yuan.   All of this information was just in the pass couple of weeks.

I found information in Arab news, China will be increasing their oil imports from Saudi Arabia this year by 11%.  They will be importing 120,000 more barrels per day than in 2012 to be 1.17 million barrels per day, from Saudi Arabia.

To give you an idea what the U.S. imports from Saudi Arabia, I found that information here. 
The U.S. imports approximately 1.319 million barrels a day (from Nov 2012 info) from them.   In November, U.S. imports decreased 38 thousands barrels from the month before.   Here are facts about Saudi Arabia and their oil business overall. 

If you look at the numbers China is catching up with the U.S. in their imports of oil on a per day basis from Saudi Arabia.  When you look a the numbers over all, you can see the U.S. has stayed steady and has had some declining oil demand compared to China having increasing oil demand.  

Why look at all of this together?  Why try and analysis what China and Saudi Arabia are doing?  

To me, those two countries are the key to the dollar demise.   They are countries to watch very closely and read in-between the lines in what new business and joint ventures they are doing together.  To me the smart thing to do to know what may lie just ahead and to position yourself for the future by getting hints, is to dig into what is happening with China and Saudi Arabia.  


Here are portions from the Arab News article: (this was written in December of 2012)

BEIJING: China’s crude oil imports from Saudi Arabia are likely to rise about 11 percent next year (2013), faster than this year’s growth rate, as refiners lift output in anticipation of an economic recovery and an increase in fuel demand, industry officials said.

China, the world’s second-largest crude consumer, is expected to buy about 1.17 million barrels per day (bpd) of Saudi oil next year, 120,000 bpd more than this year’s contracted amount. The figures are based on estimates by industry sources with direct knowledge of the supply situation.

China, which imports about 5.3 million bpd of crude a year, is Saudi Arabia’s third largest customer after the US and Japan. In the year to October, imports from Saudi grew 8.6 percent on the year to 1.06 million bpd, compared to growth of 12.6 percent in 2011. 

China sees Saudi Arabia, the world’s top oil exporter, as a strategic partner capable of providing stable supplies, and the state energy companies of both nations are in a $10 billion joint venture to build a 400,000-bpd refinery on Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea coast. 

China’s crude oil demand is one of the factors propping up global crude prices, at around $100 per barrel . This year, China’s oil demand is forecast to grow just 2.8 percent in its slowest pace in more than a decade, the International Energy Agency says, due to a slowdown in the economy, but there are signs of a revival next year. 
Sinopec Corp, Asia’s largest refiner, would take in more than 80 percent of the total Saudi supplies to China. China’s No.2 refiner, PetroChina, and state-run Sinochem Corp, will use up the rest, the sources said.
“Sinopec’s imports of Saudi crude have been increasing steadily over the past years and are expected to rise further as Sinopec’s refining capacity will rise steadily over the next few years,” said one Chinese trader.

All of the countries are upset with the U.S. for printing dollars in the billions every month.  There are currency wars happening around the world, even though countries came out of the G20 meeting in Russia this last weekend saying "No Currency war."  

Portions:

"We have not seen any such thing as a currency war. We've heard currency worries, not currency wars," IMF Chief Christine Lagarde said at the forum.
"I see no serious grounds for currency wars but the crisis made all countries fear national protectionism. Some countries attempted to heal the crisis with money printing and this lead to debt troubles."
 This makes analysts say that it’s too late to renounce currency wars as they are already in full swing, says Mikhail Delyagin, the head of the Institute of Globalization Problems.
"These wars are being waged for years and everybody seems to have forgotten about their main player - the US. America is great at devaluating its dollar and, thus, hampering other traders. It’s a zero or even a minus-sum game as this time a participant's loss is greater than the other participants’ gain. And the main thing is that the participants keep changing places."


China is making the Yuan a Global currency very slowly and here is a good explanation why. 

"If the currency is regulated by the government not by the situation on the market it cannot function as a global currency in economic relations. In order to make it a global currency it is necessary first of all to turn it into a market currency. If it happens the Yuan rate will double in comparison with its current rate and the competitiveness of Chinese goods will see a drastic decline."


They are positioning themselves for the Yuan to be a traded currency.  Another major step was just taken in London this week.  

Small portion:

A BANK of England pledge to help London become a global trading center for the yuan has stirred talk of a revival in the city's fortunessimilar to the explosion of the US dollar market in the 1960s and 70s.

In what many bankers saw as a pivotal movethe central bank said last month it was ready "in principleto adopt a currency swap line with the People's Bank of Chinaproviding a two-way pipe to the city as the still-unconvertible yuan starts to emerge as world reserve currency.
Britain would become the first major developed economy to install a currency swap line with Chinareplicating existing arrangements available for the dominant freely-traded currencies such as the dollareuro and yen.
China has agreed swap lines with more than 15 other countries but these tend to be emerging economies that have natural resources or goods used in manufacturing to export. The list does not include major industrial powers such as the United States,euro zone countries or Japan.
However, in a deliberate push to internationalize the yuan, or renminbi, China has beendeveloping an offshore market for it, as a precursor to allowing global firms, banks andasset managers access to its domestic market.

So, are you reading between the lines here?  London has just begun Swap lines with the Yuan.  Last year the CME group began trading the Yuan in Chicago. 

It is simply good sense to watch everything going on with China and the Yuan and to pay attention to all of their business in Saudi Arabia.   The facts are... we are not going to be told a few months before when Saudi Arabia begins trading directly with China in the Yuan.  It will be an overnight event/statement.   It doesn't seem that China is quite ready for the Yuan to be the total reserve currency at this time, but they are definitely working that way.  When it happens they will have protections in place that will not blow up their trading balances around the world.   They are very careful and know exactly what they are doing.  

When they have everything in place, we will not be warned in advance.  People in the U.S. will wake up, one Monday morning to the shock of the dollar being replaced around the world by the Yuan.  That day the dollar will go "Zimbabwe."   It will be a catastrophic event in the United States as the rest of the world breathes easier and can use a 'gold' backed currency to trade with.  But to those paying attention and not being distracted by the fake news on MSM, they will not be shocked and have already protected themselves for the eventual outcome.  

People need to stay paying attention to what is happening in China.  I will be watching every day for news out of that area and their trading partners to get hints on when the "Big" day will arrive for the Yuan.  We will know that day, when Saudi Arabia makes an announcement about how they will continue trading oil and in what currency.

A little extra news tidbit from Russia.... the manipulation of Gold prices and how it is ready to surge.

Most Bizarre Saturday Night Live segment ever. Jesus on a graphic killing spree.

The most bizarre Saturday Night Live segment I have ever watched, is embedded here, though I am not ever going to watch it again.  I watched it on SNL last night and was disgusted and shocked as it is so graphic and repulsive.

 I have tried to figure it out, besides of course it meaning to be as other movies in violence and killing. Why did they use Jesus as the one doing the killing in such a graphic nature? What was the real point of this? Because it sure was not funny.

WARNING: Graphic - Blood and Gore

 


Please give your in put on what they were really trying to get across here.   I have been surprised there is no media is talking about this.   It seems it would be very controversial, yet there is only silence online about it.

What is your opinion of this.  I would seriously like to know.  I just don't get it and find it revolting.

Edit to add - 2/18/13 - I found that Huffington Post has an article about it.  They also say he came back to take revenge on the Romans who crucified him, why say that when the Romans did not crucify him.  But the comments are all supportive of the segment.

China's Gold demand to outstrip supply by 2015 by 550 metric tons




China has a ferocious appetite for Gold now.  In 2012, Hong Kong shipped 94% more gold to the mainland than they did in 2011.

They are buying all the gold they can get and China's gold councils have projected by 2015, China's demand will outstrip their supply by 550 metric tons.   

There are approximately 2471 tons of gold mined annually around the world.  China mines approximately 403 tons of that.  That means within 2 years time China will be buying almost half the gold mined.

It is estimated they bought 832 tons of gold in 2012.  Here is an article from China on that subject alone.


China's gold consumption amounted to 832.18 tonnes in 2012, an increase of 9.35 percent from a year earlierdata from China Gold Association showed Saturday.
Consumption of gold jewelry rose 10.09 percent year on year to 502.75 tonneswhile those of gold bars and gold coins gained 12.22 percent and 21.63 percentrespectivelyto 239.98 tonnes and 25.3 tonnes.
But consumption for industrial and other uses saw a drop last yearthe association said.Demand for gold has grown steadily over the years as more Chinese see it as a hedge to diversify investment risks and battle against inflation.  China is currently the world's second-largest gold consumer after India.
China produced 403.05 tonnes of gold in 2012, making it the world's largest producer for the sixth straight yearaccording to previous data from the association.


Portions from article about demand:  (sorry for some reason the below will not format correctly, it splits the words when published)


The country's demand for the precious metal is expected to outstrip supply by at least 550 metric tons by 2015statistics released by several gold councils showed.

China has been the world's biggest producer of gold for six years since 2007, with an annul output of 403 tons in 2012, a year-on-year growth of 11.7 percent.
A quarter-to-quarter comparison shows China's demand for gold investment saw a 24 percent increase in the fourth quarter of 2012, said Marcus Grubbthe council's managing director for investment.
To meet demands for physical goldHong Kong shipped 114 tons of gold to the mainland in Decembera record high for monthly exportsHong Kong's net gold flow to the mainland jumped 47 percent in 2012, totaling of 557 tons.
Data from the Hong Kong Census and Statistics Department show Hong Kong's total gold shipments to the mainland in 2012 jumped 94 percent from 2011 to more than 832 tonswhile imports were six times higher at 275 tons.



You really have to wonder with China's purchases of gold and the demand so high, how is it that gold keeps getting hit and the price falls drastically as it did this last Friday.

I spoke to David Morgan from Silver-Investor.com  on Friday when Gold and Silver were getting smashed about what is going on.  He said that he believes they are in such a bad position of shorts that they had to smash it to get people to give up their long positions and to sell their gold and silver.  We spoke about the psychology of it and getting into people's mind in giving up their gold and silver.  Last year I interviewed David about that subject and the psychology of smashing metals.

I have no doubt that China loves the manipulation of Gold by the Western bankers so they can purchase at lower prices.  It is said they participate in the manipulation, which would make sense, so they can keep purchasing all they can get their hands on.

The question is.... are we now getting to the point that full demand has outstripped the physical and they are playing the paper to get people to give up their physical?  Is there such a shortage with countries now wanting to repatriate their gold, they are desperately smashing it for the last few times until it breaks away?

In regards to silver, there was an article two days ago on Silver Doctor  about a German car manufacturer hoarding silver due to the shortages of it and the need for them to have it in manufacturing their vehicles.

Portion:

New signs of an extremely tight wholesale physical silver market have now emerged, as a first-hand account has revealed that one of the largest and most famous German automakers is hoarding massive amounts of physical silver inside one of the most secure vaults in Zurich, Switzerland.
Everyone needs to ask themselves.... "Am I going to take advantage of these prices right now or am I going to give up on metals?"

I really hope that everyone makes the right decision and understands what is happening with the prices are all based on paper trades and not real physical gold and silver.

With the demand coming out of China for physical gold, (which does not include India's or Russia's appetites for Gold right now) prices will have to break out in a violent fashion one day (in the near future?).  At some point the truth will have to be revealed.

Think about how in less than 2 years (by 2015) the demand in China is going to outstrip supply.  This does not include any other country's demand or countries demanding their gold back.
