GR Silver Mining Discovers New Gold/Silver Mineralization with Marcio Fonseca, CEO

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

GR Silver Mining (sponsor) currently has 20 Geologists working round the clock to expand their already impressive resource. Four drills are turning and more are on the way. The Company is proof that the harder you work, the luckier you get. While building a connector road to an underground access tunnel, the team came across some interesting geological samples. Upon closer look, they found extensive mineralization that should substantially add to their NI 43-101 resource. Marcio and the team are more excited than ever, and he believes they’re on the cusp to achieving their 100+ million ounce goal. GR is extremely well-financed, with C$8 million in the bank, so there’s need to go back to the market for additional capital to continue their aggressive drill program. Which is why we’re extremely optimistic and currently acquiring shares.

Is He Really That Tough? with Sheriff Joe Arpaio

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Sheriff Joe Arpaio joined the army at age 18. He went to Korea, and upon returning he went on to become a cop in DC. Moving on to Las Vegas, he arrested Elvis in Las Vegas for doing 100 mph on a motorcycle. Then he moved on to work for the DEA and traveled the fighting the flow of drugs. He moved up the ladder going on to work with G. Gordon Liddy, where they shut down the Mexican Border to force cooperation in the war on drugs. He was quite unpopular with the Mexican government. His wife started blueberry pie diplomacy, feeding the Mexican AG a steady stream of her baked goods. He eventually wound up in Arizona and retired after 31 years. Quickly tiring of his new leisure life style, at 60 years old he ran and won for Maricopa County Sheriff . Was elected 6 times. Chain gangs, tent cities and pink underwear became his hallmark. He blew the whistle on illegal immigration and took it on directly, arresting many thousands of illegal immigrants, making him a target of the administration. His phones were tapped and he became a target. Eventually, he was convicted of contempt of court, but was pardoned by President Trump. Now, he’s again retired, but he’s not slowing down, even at 88 years of age.

Making Sense of the News About Sidney Powell

from Zero Hedge

As AmericanThinker.com’s Andrea Widburg detailed extensively earlier, you probably already know that Trump’s legal team announced that Sidney Powell is not a team member. The brief statement leaves unanswered the most important question: “Why?” Absent solid information, speculation leads us either to “This is the beginning of the end” or “This is all part of the plan” – and I’m leaning to the latter.

[…] Events happened with head-spinning speed. On Thursday, Trump’s legal team held a press conference. Rudy Giuliani talked about traditional voter fraud (cemetery voters, faked ballots, etc.); Sidney Powell talked about corrupt, or corruptible, election software, a familiar topic to the State of Texas NPR, and MSNBC; and Jenna Ellison reminded the press that the conference was not an evidentiary hearing but was, instead, an opening statement.

Proof of a Systemic Racket in Covid-19 Testing

by Karl Denninger
Market-Ticker.org

This article, published in Clinical Infectious Diseases by Oxford Academic, is damning.

It is known, of course, to Fauci, Birx, TNDOH, Vanderbilt, Harvard, Yale and others. It’s their job to keep on top of such things, and yet there has been exactly zero word said about any of it by any of these organizations or individuals.

RT-PCR testing is what all the breathless case counts are predicated on. From it we drive all public policy. We presume these actual case counts are accurate, that they represent the spread of the virus across the population, and that these positive tests represent a minimum number of infected people.

As with most respiratory viruses not everyone who gets one seeks medical attention. As such a large percentage of flu sufferers and virtually all common cold sufferers, for example, are never picked up by “testing” of any sort because they never go to a doctor. For this reason any such “testing” paradigm can only put a lower boundary on infections, never an upper one, especially with a virus that in many — or even most — cases does no serious harm.

More New Research Shows Only Those with Symptoms Spread Covid-19. Masks School Closings & Lockdowns Couldn’t Have Been More Pointless.

by Michael Thau
Red State

In 2020, a set of oppressive restrictions were imposed on the American people in response to COVID-19 that had never before been so much as suggested, let alone witnessed, in all of human history.

Our businesses, schools, churches, and even doctors’ offices were peremptorily shut down by government fiat.

We were forbidden from leaving home for activities deemed inessential and from commiserating with friends and family in groups deemed too large.

When, after months, a return to some skeletal semblance of normal human life was finally permitted, for many it was only on the condition that they never appear in public with their faces unmasked.

If Joe Biden is Serious About Criminal Justice Reform, He Won’t Pick Merrick Garland for Attorney General

Garland’s judicial record is replete with deferential votes for police and prosecutors.

by Damon Root
Reason.com

President-elect Joe Biden is reportedly considering federal Judge Merrick Garland to serve as the attorney general in his administration. According to reporting by NPR, “two people closely following the process” say that Garland is a contender for the role in the Biden White House.

Garland, a long-serving judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, was President Barack Obama’s 2016 pick to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. But Garland’s SCOTUS nomination was totally stonewalled by the Republican-controlled Senate, which refused to even hold hearings. As a result, President Donald Trump was later able to fill the vacancy by nominating Neil Gorsuch.

Plenty of Democrats would no doubt enjoy the idea of Biden trolling the GOP by sending Garland back to Capitol Hill for another high-profile Senate confirmation showdown.

Why Industrial Scale Fraud is Just So Hard to Hide

by Jay Valentine
American Thinker

People, we need to talk.

Way too many are caught in a media-induced despondency, knowing the presidential election was stolen, in the dark of night, vote counting suddenly stopped, vote counts on the television switched from Trump to Biden – yet each thinks he or she is the only one who saw it.

Why do I feel so alone?

Nobody can hide industrial scale fraud, of any sort, for long: Medicaid fraud, stock manipulation, fake invoices. The bigger the fraud, the harder it is to hide and thus the greater probability it is all going to come out. The words “…this would be the crime of the century” will likely be Tucker Carlson’s “read my lips, no new taxes….” a year from now.

Let’s talk about industrial level fraud.

It’s all over the place.

Landmark Danish Study Finds No Significant Effect for Facemask Wearers

by Prof Carl Heneghan & Tom Jefferson
The Spectator

Do face masks work? Earlier this year, the UK government decided that masks could play a significant role in stopping Covid-19 and made masks mandatory in a number of public places. But are these policies backed by the scientific evidence?

Yesterday marked the publication of a long-delayed trial in Denmark which hopes to answer that very question. The ‘Danmask-19 trial’ was conducted in the spring with over 6,000 participants, when the public were not being told to wear masks but other public health measures were in place. Unlike other studies looking at masks, the Danmask study was a randomised controlled trial – making it the highest quality scientific evidence.

The Untold Story of Mnuchin’s Demand for the Fed to Shut Down Emergency Lending Programs

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Wall Street on Parade

Fourteen days before U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin released a letter to Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, demanding the return of taxpayers’ money and the end to specific Fed emergency programs by the end of the year, four Senate Democrats had written to Mnuchin and Powell asking them to extend those very same emergency programs.

The Senate Democrats who authored the letter were Senators Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Mark Warner of Virginia and Chuck Schumer of New York. The letter explained that “As of September, 3.8 million workers suffered permanent job losses, with 2.4 million considered long-term unemployed. Moreover, according to an analysis from Moody’s, without more federal support, another 3 million teachers, nurses, emergency responders, firefighters, and others from around the country will lose their jobs in the next two years.”

Propaganda, Election Fraud and the Death of Journalism

by Frank Miele
Real Clear Politics

Easy question: Is it illegal to steal an election or not?

You would have to assume that it is no big deal based on the response to claims of widespread fraud in the contest between President Trump and Joe Biden. Big Media says the evidence just doesn’t exist, and most Americans seem to be lost in a blue haze of blind acceptance that whatever they are told by the talking heads on TV must be true.

This kind of unthinking obedience to authority is a frightening harbinger of an America that is no longer a nation of laws, but rather a nation of edicts. You can already see that unfolding in the sheep-like acceptance of COVID-19 restrictions that blatantly ignore the Constitution. But if you dare do your own independent assessment of facts — whether regarding the efficacy of mask use in preventing spread of coronavirus or regarding the security of electronic voting — you will quickly come to a different conclusion than that which is approved by Big Tech, Big Media and Big Money.

Beijing-Controlled News Outlet Paid U.S. Newspapers Millions for Ads

by Penka Arsova
LaCorte News

American newspapers have taken millions from a China-controlled media outlet, despite the uproar about Beijing’s alleged disinformation efforts.

In detail: China Daily, an English-language newspaper owned by the Publicity Department of the Chinese Communist Party, paid over $4.4 million for printing, distribution, advertising, and administration expenses to prominent U.S. news publishers in the last past six months, according to a Foreign Agents Registration Act filing.

[…] The state department this year designated the outlet as a “foreign mission.”

Specifically, the outlet gave the Wall Street Journal more than $85,000 for advertising. Los Angeles received $340,000 for advertising campaigns, the Foreign Policy magazine $100,000, The Financial Times, which is a U.K.-based newspaper, $223,710, and the Canadian outlet Globe & Mail $132,046.

Why Morgan Stanley Expects a Correction: “Market Pressure is Necessary to Get Congress or Fed to Act”

from Zero Hedge

Yesterday, when looking at the Morgan Stanley Sunday Start brief which recaps the bank’s key points, we said that “Wall Street’s most accurate analyst” – that would be the bank’s chief US equity strategist Michael Wilson – is bullish over the next 12 months seeing a 10% increase in the broader market, yet bearish into year end, expecting another corrective “drawdown” in the S&P500.

He wasn’t the only one: in a follow up note published this morning, Wilson says that the most common question he heard while marketing the bank’s optimistic, almost euphoria 2021 outlook was that clients “see 2021 upside, but are worried about the next few weeks.”

Wilson then elaborates that he is “not the only ones who are bulls into next year but a bit less comfortable with risk near term. More than a few people were surprised and worried about the inability of the market to break through 3600 on a deluge of good news from vaccine efficacy and lower election related overhangs.

Euro Zone Corporate Vulnerability at Levels Seen in Debt Crisis: ECB

FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Euro zone firms are increasingly vulnerable amid a pandemic-induced recession but public support, including cheap cash from the European Central Bank, have limited the damage so far, a new ECB report showed on Monday.

“Corporate vulnerabilities have increased to levels last observed at the peak of the euro area sovereign debt crisis, but remain below levels reached in the aftermath of the global financial crisis,” the ECB said a stability report article.

For a graphic on Euro zone: policy support has kept companies afloat:

Gold SWOT: Bullion at Risk of a “Major Collapse”?

– The best performing precious metal for the week was platinum, up 6.26 percent, as hedge funds boost their net-long position to a two-year high on expectations platinum will find new demand in the green hydrogen space as the catalyst for electrolysis to liberate hydrogen. The World Platinum Investment Council projects a platinum deficit of 1.2 million ounces for 2020, the largest since records began. Pandemic-related mine closures by key producers is likely to keep the metal in deficit even as demand from autocatalysts, the biggest consumers of the metal, is forecast to drop by 16%. The metal could get a boost from the surge in green hydrogen interest. Platinum plays a key role in electrolysis and in the fuel cells used in hydrogen powered vehicles.

A man caught on video “forcefully exhaling” on two women outside President Donald Trump’s Virginia golf course on Saturday has been charged with assault.

Is America Doomed to Split Apart?

by Kurt Schlichter
The Burning Platform

Is anyone else too old to start living on his knees? See, submission is not in the cards. The question is whether preserving our freedom means dissolving the Union. And though our alleged betters tell us we are not allowed to think about that horrible prospect, it’s the ruling caste itself that raised the question.

When you get a vile clown like Chuck Schumer promising to “change America” if he steals another Georgia election in the coming run-off, it only reaffirms that we don’t want to “change America” – at least not into the Venezuela-lite he and his coterie of neo-Marxist bother-wedders, fake Indians, and buck-tooth morons want. We’re not living in a dictatorship of the mediocre-tariat, or of anyone else, period. That’s non-negotiable. Nor does any alleged conservative principle of the kind pushed by supine gimps of the Mitt n’ French variety bind us to do so.

‘You’re Such a D**k’: New Jersey Governor Confronted Eating Maskless Outside with His Family

Democratic New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy was confronted by several angry people as he ate outside a restaurant with his family, a video posted Sunday shows.

Video footage posted by the Twitter account Breaking 911 showed the New Jersey governor eating outside a restaurant with five other people the account identified as his family members.

[…] The video showed Murphy taking a bite of food as a woman said, “Oh my God, it is,” apparently discovering that the person sitting at the table was indeed the governor of New Jersey.

“Oh my God, Murphy, you are such a dick,” the woman said, as another woman can be heard saying repeatedly, “How you doing? How you doing? You having fun with your family in the meantime? You’re having all kind of other bullshit going on at your house?”

Rudy Giuliani: The Case for Election Fraud Being Made by American Patriots in Both Parties

by Penny Starr
Breitbart.com

President Donald Trump’s legal team held a press conference on Thursday about the election fraud that’s been uncovered — a large amount of it reported by American citizens from both major political parties who want to preserve U.S. election integrity.

“That takes us to Michigan, where there was an honest Democrat who said they were cheating,” Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s lead attorney, said to reporters at the press conference. “We’ll show you her affidavit, because I know you keep reporting, falsely, that we have no evidence.”

“That we have no specific acts of fraud,” Giuliani said. “That’s because the coverage of this has been almost as dishonest as the scheme itself.”

“The American people are entitled to know this,” Giuliani said.

Giuliani said that the press should not lie about what the investigation has revealed so far, including that it is Americas coming forward to share their stories of election fraud.

The Great Relocation: Americans Are Relocating by the Millions Because They Can Feel What is Coming

by Michael Snyder
The Economic Collapse Blog

This is a really odd time to be having a “housing boom”. We are in the middle of the worst public health crisis in 100 years, endless civil unrest has been ravaging many of our largest cities, and we are experiencing the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s. But even though more than 70 million Americans have filed new claims for unemployment benefits this year, home sales are absolutely rocking. How in the world is this possible?

Well, this phenomenon is actually quite easy to explain. As our society comes apart at the seams all around us, vast numbers of Americans are seeking greener pastures. According to ABC News, the chaotic events of 2020 have caused “millions of Americans” to relocate. In New York City alone, more than 300,000 former residents have permanently moved to new addresses.

Democrats and Media Abandon Democracy

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
PaulCraigRoberts.org

Michigan State Attorney General Dana Nessel has attributes of a Nazi. She, like Washington Post columnist Randall D. Eliason, wants to falsely prosecute attorneys who represent those making challenges to the election. She also wants to prosecute election officials who refuse to certify until irregularities are properly dealt with, and she wants to prosecute Pennsylvania Republican state officials who met with Trump at the White House. In other words, Dana Nessel has proved herself unfit for any public office by her effort to weaponize law for her political agenda.

George Washington Law School professor Jonathan Turley discusses Dana Nessel’s attempt to coerce Republicans by threatening them with indictments. https://www.zerohedge.com/political/michigan-ag-calls-criminal-charges-against-gop-certifiers-who-wont-fall-line?utm_campaign=&utm_content=Zerohedge%3A+The+Durden+Dispatch&utm_medium=email&utm_source=zh_newsletter

U.K. Supreme Court Judge Slams ‘Totalitarian’ Covid ‘Control Freaks’ in Government

“Coercing the entire population is morally and constitutionally indefensible in a country which is not yet a totalitarian state, like China”

by Steve Watson
Info Wars

A British Supreme Court judge has slammed the UK government as ‘control freaks’ for attempting to control people’s lives under the guise of COVID, and labeled it “morally and constitutionally indefensible” to define what freedoms the public should and shouldn’t have.

In an op-ed published Sunday, Lord Sumption noted that the “debate about whether to let us have a family Christmas perfectly sums up what is wrong with this Government’s handling” of the crisis.

Sumption wrote that there are “many different answers to the dilemmas of a Covid Christmas”, yet the crux of the matter is “whether we should be allowed to make the choice for ourselves, instead of having it imposed on us by law.”

“But for the Jacobins of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) and the control freaks in the Department of Health, theirs is the only answer,” Sumption urged.
