JP Morgan: Operation Silver Slam

There is a huge movement in the Silver Stacker community to commemorate the May 1, 2011 Silver “Drive By Shooting” by loading up on physical silver.
 I support this cause 100% and will visit my local coin dealer to make my purchase on Wednesday.
 For those of you who don’t know what happened way back then here was my analysis at the time:
 JP Morgan: Operation Silver Slam 
 Yes, it was 100% illegal.
 Yes, it was orchestrated by the Chief of Staff in the White House.
 Yes, it made many of us as mad as we’ve ever been…
 So now it’s PAYBACK TIME!
 We are smarter now. We know the price is rigged so we don’t care if the price of their paper silver goes up or down. We will keep buying and stacking until the very LAST ounce of physical silver is GONE.
 So buy physical silver on May 1st…then buy more on May 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.
 We have been on this Road a long, long time and now we have become “anti-fragile”. They can’t break us! We are relentless buyers of physical silver. We are like Mini-Silver Terminators!
 Let them do what they want with the paper COMEX silver price…we get the REAL STUFF!
 I have posted the latest update in our Battle to free the silver market here…
 Silver FREEDOM Update…14 Days
 May the Road you choose be the Right Road.

Sheriff Terry Maketa – El Paso County – Colorado Springs, Colorado

Subject: Fw: Sheriff Terry Maketa – El Paso County – Colorado Springs, Colorado

·         I am truly appalled at the president’s claim that 90% of Americans support the proposed gun control laws. His speech writer should be fired. He claims these bills would have prevented another Sandy Hook or Aurora shooting, yet he has no evidence to support that claim. Factually speaking, the proposed laws in Colorado would not have prevented one incident, nor would the Federal proposed bills. Don’t forget one of the sponsors, Congresswoman DeGette, actually thought magazines were the same as bullets. That’s the kind of familiarity those who sponsor these bills have with the subject. 

Mr. President, just because the polls tell you what buzz phrases to use to seek your agenda, it does not mean the American people are so naive to follow your continuous record of lies. Remember there are many of us that remember the day you promised to reduce the National deficit by 50%, and you did far more damage and tripled it with nothing to show but more people reliant on your handouts. The people are onto you and we will remember this at election time as you asked in your latest hollywood type speech. Here in Colorado, and at the federal level, your puppets will be removed from office and your legacy will be remembered in history as the ultimate failure based on lie after lie. Yes, your so-called promise of change is more lies, debt, and higher taxes on the middle class to pay for your failed promises. Please tout more successes of Chicago, such as their tax rates, the upside down pension fund, number of homicides, clearance rates or lack of clearances. 

Our president even claimed Chicago as justification, for these gun control measures knowing full well that Chicago is the poster child of failure from gun control laws. Violence has increased since Chicago’s gun control measures have been in place and they are more restrictive than any other city in this country. In simple terms, it got worse and his creation of so-called “sheep” to fend off the “wolf” have failed. The American people are not the sheep he wants to create. We will be heard and we will not follow his lies that lack scientific validation and truth. My heart goes out to all victims of any violence. Statistically speaking, more people are killed by items other than guns far more often, but our president doesn’t want you to know that. Check the Bureau of Justice Statistics for yourself and do it before his administration manipulates them. 

The president claims to be speaking for the victims, yet he chooses which victims, because I, as many of you, have witnessed victims from Aurora, Sandy Hook, and even Columbine plea with law makers to not pass measures that criminalize and punish the law abiding citizens for the acts of killers. They demonstrated common sense and showed true courage to stand against the lies and denounce the measures as ineffective. The promises of preventing these horrific acts in the future are misleading and even our own governor has admitted, here in Colorado, the similar guns bills would not have prevented tragedies such as Aurora and Sandy Hook. Our president is an embarrassment to our free society and so are his puppets. The next election will show just that. The president’s posturing and agenda were truly seen for what they are, more lies and false promises, most importantly an agenda based on undeliverable promises. How embarrassing he uses the greatest failure in our nations’ history for more gun control and people control- that failure being the murder capital of the United States, Chicago. Watch his statement on CNN and ask yourself how he can mention his home town as an example of justification. This is the city that arrested a 56 year old female researcher at the University of Illinois, Chicago, during the week of February 15th for bringing an unloaded weapon to work, in a secured box, to prevent it from being stolen by contractors working on her home. She was trying to prevent a crime and not be a victim. She was arrested and had to post a $25,000.00 bond to get out of jail and is now on suspension from work, pending criminal charges and awaiting trial. 

This is what happens when emotionally charged laws are recklessly passed. Law abiding citizens are criminalized. Thankfully a majority of US Congress saw through these proposed lies and did what’s right. Now we, the people of Colorado, need to send a message to the governor and the Capitol that we will not be criminalized, nor will we stand by and allow our rights to be infringed and stripped based on lies and unenforceable, agenda driven bad laws. That is why I will not back off this issue and will proudly support my rights, to access to courts, with 37 other sheriffs in a legal action against these ridiculous, unconstitutional laws. 

I have been asked by many, what can I do to help? I will ask that you do not lay down, do not go silent; that is what they hope for and expect. Do not let them convert you to sheep. Evil prospers when good people do nothing. Do not let evil prosper. I will not quit and please don’t you give up and quit.


Guess our national leaders didn’t expect this. On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of …the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado, was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful. They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness. The following is a portion of the transcript:
“Since the dawn of creation there has been both good &evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers. “The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain’s heart. “In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA – because I don’t believe that they are responsible for my daughter’s death. Therefore I do not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel’s murder I would be their strongest opponent I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy — it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best.
Your laws ignore our deepest needs, Your words are empty air. You’ve stripped away our heritage, You’ve outlawed simple prayer. Now gunshots fill our classrooms, And precious children die. You seek for answers everywhere, And ask the question “Why?” You regulate restrictive laws, Through legislative creed. And yet you fail to understand, That God is what we need!
“Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational systems for most of our nation’s history. Many of our major colleges began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine’s tragedy occurs — politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.
“As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him.
To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA — I give to you a sincere challenge.. Dare to examine your own heart before casting the first stone! My daughter’s death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!” – Darrell Scott
Do what the media did not – – let the nation hear this man’s speech. Please share this with your friends!

RECAP: Stunning New Revelations from Lt. Mike Zullo – Obama Fraud Case

Read text below and listen to radio show here at this link:


COLD CASE POSSE  – Obama Fraud

On Friday April 5, 2013 – Carl Gallups of Freedom
Friday with Carl Gallups
interviewed Mike Zullo, Lead Investigator, with
the Sheriff Arpaio Cold Case Posse. The interview was conducted over an hour and
half portion of Carl’s show. Zullo and Gallups promised stunning new revelations
in the case … and in spite of the Obamabot naysayers and, apparently, those
incapable of intelligently discerning spoken information – Gallups and Zullo
delivered on the promise!

Below is a recap of the revelations:

Within the last 2 days before the interview, Zullo confirmed that brand new
information had been received in the investigation which bolstered the legal
evidence of the long form birth certificate being a 100% fabricated and
fraudulent document. The information came, unexpected, from a professional
source of the investigation, and is irrefutable.

2. Within the last
couple of days before the interview, Zullo  had several lengthy meetings with
VIPS who have promised to soon bring this case forward in an “official” manner.
The VIPS are of “standing” and have the authority to bring the case forward.
They have promised full public exposure to the case, the evidence, and to the
hopeful ends of a full and official “hearing” of the matter.

3. A
definitive “plan of action” is now being formulated with several VIPS to make
number 3 above happen as soon as possible.

4. Several other VIPS have now
scheduled meetings with Zullo and are expected to come on board with the
exposure process.

5. Zullo revealed for the FIRST TIME publicly that a
“certified” source of legal investigation has now “signed off” on the CCP
investigation and has declared the evidence to be 100% accurate and the document
in question to be a complete fabricated fraud upon the American people. This
source is certified to testify in Federal Courts throughout the

6. Gallups identified that at least one VIP has reneged on their
promise of further meetings and investigations. Gallups is promising to “out”
this VIP very soon. Gallups attests that he possesses the email trail from the
office of the VIP proving that the VIP planned to participate in the evidence
examination. The VIP is now claiming that their office never planned to be a
part of that meeting – even though the email evidence specifically indicates
otherwise. In other words – the VIP lied and Gallups says he can prove it.

7. Zullo says the public disclosure of the evidence and the push for
definitive legal action may take from 3 – 6 months depending upon the “plan of
action” that is being formulated by the VIPS who are already on board and the
VIPS that they are trying to bring on board with them in this matter. Further
VIP meetings are being scheduled at this time. 

For those wanting
“specifics” of the above – we will have to wait until it is all made public.
This is no small matter. This is a criminal case of monumental and historical
magnitude. Zullo, Arpaio, Gallups, et. al. are not about to leak out the
specifics of the investigation and especially names of the VIPS who are now,
finally, promising action in this case.

The Obamabots would LOVE for
Zullo or Gallups to “slip up” or be “bullied” into releasing more
information…but Gallups and Zullo are much too smart for those tactics. The
Obamabots would love to know the specifics, the evidence, and the names of the
VIPS so they could attack them and start a disinformation campaign. But they
cannot do either – because they simply do not know what the CCP is now in
possession of. The Obamabots are going crazy.

Gallups and Zullo are
asking people to be patient. The bottom line, they say, is that this case is now
further along and closer to being publicly dealt with than ever before. These
things take time – but Gallups and Zullo have promised that they are not going
away until the case is “heard” or until the VIPS are “outed” for reneging on
promises to deal with the matter. Gallups and Zullo have promised, one way or
the other – the truth will be disseminated to the world.

Zullo and the CCP are asking for your donations. Yes – they are asking for them
without shame. The donations are the only source of funding in the
investigation, travel and future expenses. Many of you ask: How can we help? 
Gallups and Zullo say: PRAY – and donate! 


The Whole Problem (and Solution) in Two Minutes by Larken Rose

Published on Apr  2, 2013           

For those who asked for a quick summary of the main point of “The Most Dangerous Superstition”–and most of what I talk about–here it is.

Former US Treasury Official – Fed Desperate To Save System

Today a former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury warned King World News that the Federal Reserve’s recent market interventions are a clear sign that there is something desperate going on behind the scenes.  Former Assistant of the US Treasury, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, also cautioned KWN that the Fed is trying to maintain control so the whole scheme doesn’t blow up.  Below is what Dr. Roberts had to say in the first part of two extraordinary interviews which will be released today.

Dr. Roberts: “As I have explained, the orchestrated move against gold and silver is to protect the exchange value of the US dollar.  The Federal Reserve is creating one trillion new dollars per year, but the world is moving away from the use of the dollar for international payments and, thus, as a reserve currency. 

 The result is an increase in supply and a decrease in demand.  That means a falling price.  The orchestration against bullion cannot ultimately succeed.  It is designed to gain time for the Federal Reserve to be able to continue financing the federal budget deficit by printing money and also to keep interest rates low and debt prices high in order to support the banks’ balance sheets. 

 When the Federal Reserve can no longer print due to dollar collapse which printing would make worse, bank deposits and pensions will be grabbed in order to finance the deficit….

“The manipulation of the bullion market is illegal, but as government is doing it the law will not be enforced.  It is an act of desperation.  If bullion were not a threat, the government would not be attacking it.

 The fact that the Federal Reserve is short selling bullion means that there is something desperate going on, and I assume it’s related to the US dollar.  If the dollar drops sharply in exchange value the Fed can’t control the interest rate and the bond price and so all of the bubbles would blow up.

 All of the recent reports of countries moving away from the dollar to settle their international payments has most likely caused a great many countries to look at getting out of dollars.  We not only have the BRICS moving away from the use of the dollar, but also China, Japan, and all of the East Asians. 

 Recently we have even seen reports out of Australia that they are going to deal directly with China in their own currency.  So this drop in demand for dollars when the Fed is creating one trillion new dollars every year means the exchange value of the US dollar is untenable. 

 The first move out of the dollar is in to gold.  In fact this has been going on since the beginning of the 21st century.  But the Fed doesn’t want that because if the price of gold rises too rapidly in terms of dollars it scares everyone.  Also, if you had a sharp movement out of dollars you would in fact see a sharp fall in the exchange value.  At that point the Fed has lost control and the whole scheme blows up.

 So that is what the situation is.  They are desperate.  They are having to drive down the obvious alternative to the dollar, which is gold, in order to affect the psychology of people throughout the world.  But China sits on the largest collection of dollars in the world and they have to be worried about it.  In fact they have been lecturing us for years about our irresponsible monetary and financial policies.  So they will be very glad to get out.

 Now I don’t think this attack on gold on the part of the Fed can last much longer because the Indians will buy gold here as well.  The BRICS will also use this opportunity to get rid of dollars.  But what this is designed to do is break up the sentiment among Americans and gold bugs.  It scares them.  It is designed to stop the flow of money from ordinary citizens into gold.

 The Fed is also hoping the offsetting run of the central banks buying gold won’t be enough, at least any time soon, to push the price of gold back above where the Fed has capped it.  The Fed has been at this for a long time.  First they capped the gold price (at around $1,900), and then they drove it below $1,750.  Gold would come back to and even above the $1,750 level and the Fed would drive it back down.  

But now they have it even lower.  I think the last couple of days there has been an amazing amount of selling on the part of the Fed.  It’s paper shorts, not actual people selling bullion.  But they are trying to bust up the momentum in gold so they can hold on to their low interest rates, high bond prices, and continue printing money.

 You see if the Fed can’t print money they can’t finance the federal budget deficit.  Printing money is also how the Fed buys the bonds to drive up the derivative debt-related instruments on the banks’ books.  It makes the banks look solvent.

 If the Fed can’t print money they can’t buy the bonds to keep the banks solvent and buy the bonds to keep the Treasury operating.  The rising gold price is a threat to that.  So the Fed is taking desperate action against gold.  I agree with you that this will be temporary.  I don’t know how long this will last, how long they can get away with it, but certainly not for very long.”

 **IMPORTANT – Part II of Dr. Paul Craig Roberts extraordinary KWN written interview will be released within hours.

Bill Introduced to Re-Instate ORIGINAL 13th Amendment

New Hampshire Bill Introduced to Re-Instate ORIGINAL 13th Amendment – The Truth  Is Coming Out,  Big Deal For Sure.

What is Going on With North Korea is Not What it Seems

by Benjamin Fulford

April 3rd, 2013) – The biggest eye opener for me in decades of reporting about North Korea came seven years ago when a top Chinese government agent in Japan told me China considered North Korea to be a US colony.

The recent so-called threats of war by North Korea being widely reported in the Western press are in fact cabal efforts to intimidate that country as it seeks independence from secret US rule. The North Korean moves are a part of an overall East Asian move away from cabal rule.

However, recent corporate media coverage of North Korea makes it obvious that very few members of the Western media have a clue about what is really going on there. That is why I have decided to write a basic primer for the benefit of interested readers and policy makers. The first thing people need to understand when looking at North Korea is to realize the country was set up by remnants of the Japanese army that was stationed in China during and before World War 2. The regime in North Korea thus closely resembles the war time government of Japan with the main difference being the God King is named Kim and not Hirohito. Remember, what is North Korea now was part of Japan or under Japanese influence from the late 19th century until the middle of the 20th century.

The next thing people need to understand is that part way through the post-war US occupation of Japan, a fundamental change in US policy took place. Following the murder of President Roosevelt by Nazi sympathizers towards the end of World War 2, a large part of the US intelligence community was gradually taken over by Nazis.

In Japan this meant that during the first part of the US occupation strenuous efforts were made to turn Japan into a pacifist, socialist country. Then as Nazi influence grew the fake so-called Cold War started and the policy shifted to fighting the Soviet Union. As a part of this new strategy 50,000 Japanese intelligence and military officers, experts in fighting communism in China, were brought over to Japan from North Korea. This group has, to this day, exerted serious but hidden control over the Japanese political world in the post-war era. That is why it is no coincidence that the headquarters of the unofficial North Korean Embassy in Japan, the Chosen Soren (North Korean Citizens Association) is located next to the Yasukuni shrine honouring Japan’s war dead.

For much of the post-war era, the North Korean group in Japan was headed by Yasuhiro Nakasone and was closely allied to US power brokers like George Bush Sr. and David Rockefeller. For example, until recently the 20,000 strong Inagawa-kai yakuza gang prominently displayed a picture of George Bush Senior at its headquarters.

However, this cozy relationship started to change during the Bush Jr. regime when Asian secret societies found out that SARS was a race-specific Nazi bioweapon spread by the Bush regime with the aim of wiping out much of Asia’s population.

In Japan the result was large, but unreported midnight gang fights pitting supporters of the Nazis or Sabbatean Satanists against Asian secret societies and their Western allies.

As a part of this ongoing struggle, a regime change took place in North Korea after Kim Jong Il was assassinated with a stroke inducing poison administered by a Swedish prostitute.

The new ruler, Kim Jong-un, is the son of Yokota Megumi, a girl of Japanese royal family lineage who was kidnapped from a beach in Niigata when she was 13. The Kim regime is thus very pro-Japanese. The regime change in North Korea led to a severe split between the North Korean government and North Korean organizations in Japan.

Some of the North Korean organizations in Japan have been deeply in bed with the Sabbateans or Nazis and earned their money either using Nazi CIA manufactured “super-K” banknotes or else selling amphetamines. It was also the Nazis who supplied the North Koreans with both nuclear weapons and missile technology.

They also carried out some very nasty secret projects with their Nazi allies. For example, the attack on the Japanese subway system using poisonous sarin gas, and blamed on the Aum Shinrikyo Cult, was an operation run by a North Korean agent by the name of Ota in cooperation with “Jewish Al-Qaeda types,” according to several witnesses.

The nuclear and tsunami terror attack against Japan on March 11, 2011 was also carried out by the Sabbatean Nazis and some of their North Korean allies. The missile used in the attack was a 500 kiloton device stolen from the Russian submarine Kursk in 2000. It was transferred by the secret Nazi submarine network to the Nazi base on the Atlantic Island of Sao Tome. From there it was taken to the other Nazi submarine base in New Guinea before being taken to Japan via yacht and fishing boat.

After being landed in Kyushu it was then taken to a property in Hinodecho in Western Tokyo owned by Yasuhiro Nakasone. Then it was transferred to the Chosen Soren building next to the Yasukuni shrine before being taken to the deep sea drilling ship Chikyu. The sources for the information include smugglers and yakuza members actually involved in the transportation of the missile. These people are willing to testify to this in court.

On board the Chikyu, the nuclear material in the missile was divided to make several smaller devices that were drilled 10 kilometers into the sea-bed. One of the technicians involved in this operation ran to a church seeking help after his co-workers started to be murdered in order to silence them after the tsunami occurred. He was sheltered by a Christian group connected to the Tachikawa church of the reverend Paolo Izumi and is now in protective custody in the US.

Disgust at the 311 attacks is one of the main reasons for the split between the old North Korean organizations in Japan and the new North Korean government. This has led to the arrest of Yasuhiro Nakasone and an ongoing secret purge of all those involved in this operation. A visible sign of this is that the Japanese government seized the Chosen Soren headquarters building and auctioned it off. It was bought for 4.5 billion yen (about $50 million) by Eikan Ikeguchi a Buddhist monk powerbroker who is very friendly with both Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan and the regime of supreme leader Kim Jong-un of North Korea.

The Sabbateans Nazis, of course, are not taking this passively. For example, we can confirm from sources extremely close to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that he has come down with cancer and suspects he was hit with a cancer causing virus during his recent visit to the US. Abe is now taking hemp extract and has been advised by this writer to take 5000 IUs of vitamin D3 per day and 1 gram of vitamin C every six hours to counter-act the cancer causing virus.

The ongoing power struggle is also revealing itself in the form of a financial crisis brewing in South Korea, North Korea and Japan. This crisis has several interlocking dimensions. First of all, the Japanese government is considering passing a bill to tax all assets worth over 50 million yen (about $500,000) owned by South and North Korean nationals living in Japan. Since Korean gangsters seized large amounts of prime real estate near train stations during the chaos after WW2, huge funds are involved.

That may explain why a several Korean groups are now offering to trade yen for won at a huge discount to the official exchange rate, according to a South Korean CIA source.

That also explains a lot of the North Korean saber rattling in recent days since the North Koreans secretly control huge swathes of the Japanese economy and are understandably reluctant to have those assets seized by Japanese taxmen.

There is also a huge credit card debt crisis brewing in South Korea, according to a veteran Japanese securities company executive. South Korean women are being sold into prostitution around the world to pay for their credit card debt, he says, but this option is not available for other Koreans. He expects a major credit card debt crisis to hit Goldman Sachs in particular, very hard.

The other crisis in South Korea has to do with bank loans, he says. Bank officers in South Korea with the authority to approve loans have been taking personal commissions of 10% or more on the loans they approve. This corruption is also leading to a bad loan scandal, he says. The executive further made an interesting comment saying that “the people above me were Hillary Clinton and Henry Kissinger but they have lost power and we are not sure who is in charge now.”

This comment makes it quite clear that a temporary power vacuum is emerging as the old post-war political structures in East Asia change. The new North Korean regime wants to unify with South Korea and are offering the South Koreans economic control in exchange for North Korean political control. The South Koreans are offering a ceremonial role to Kim Jon-un.

Both sides also want closer relations with Japan. That is why plans have already been approved to build a railway line linking Japan with the Korean peninsula.

The Japanese, for their part, want to keep the US military presence in the region to make sure they are not bullied into a submissive relationship with China. However, they are no longer willing to accept status as a junior partner of the US.

The Chinese are saying that Okinawa must once again become either a Chinese protectorate or an independent kingdom. They might be persuaded to allow Okinawa to become an independent free trade zone with a US military presence to assure its neutrality. Such a force would be paid for by the Japanese and Chinese.

There is also a proposal on the table to build a transnational East Asian development bank staffed by members of regional governments. In any case, the recent saber rattling in East Asian can be equated to table pounding and shouting of the sort seen during M&A negotiations between major corporations. Things are still very much in flux and hard to predict but the end result, though, is expected to be a win-win solution.
