OK, so the U.S. Congress says this passes through “disputed” territory. Who exactly is going to enforce the “foul”? Will we put them on double secret probation? The bottom line is the U.S. dollar is being supplanted no matter what decibel level the protests reach… China will do what is best for China. the U.S. be damned!

CPEC Passes Through Disputed Territory: US
October 7, 2017

WASHINGTON: The Trump administration has informed Congress that it too believes the China-Pakistan Econo­mic Corridor (CPEC) passes through a disputed territory — originally an India claim aimed at thwarting the development plan.

The $56 billion CPEC passes through Pakis­t­an’s northern areas, which India claims is part of the disputed Jammu and Kashmir territory.

“The One Belt, One Road also goes through disputed territory, and I think that in itself shows the vulnerability of trying to establish that sort of a dictate,” US Defence Sec­retary James Mattis told the Senate Armed Services Committee/.

Secretary Mattis and Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen Joseph Dun­­­ford ap­­peared before the Sen­ate and House armed services panel earlier this week to brief US lawmakers on the current situation in the Pak-Afghan region.

Secretary Mattis said the US oppo­sed the One Belt, One Road policy in principle because in a globalised world, there were many belts and many roads, and no one nation shou­­ld put itself into a position of dictating One Belt, One Road. And it opposed the one going through Pakistan also because it passed throu­­gh a disputed territory.

Maybe they should check the basement for fire? But then again, gold doesn’t burn and neither does thin air?

Fire Erupts on Roof of Federal Reserve Building in Manhattan: FDNY
October 7, 2017

Dozens of firefighters were fighting a blaze on top of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York on Saturday night, officials say.

The fire broke out sometime before 8:40 p.m. on the roof of the 14-story building at 33 Liberty St. in Lower Manhattan.

Video shows numerous fire trucks and firefighters at the scene around 9 p.m.

The FDNY said a generator on the roof of the building caused the fire in a chimney.

No injuries have been reported.

The severity of the damage to the building is not known, and it wasn’t immediately clear if the fire had been put out shortly before midnight.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts on Las Vegas. A week later and still many questions, few answers and almost no evidence?

Las Vegas Final Comment

Las Vegas Final Comment

Dear Readers, some of you keep pushing me for an explanation of the Las Vegas event. I have no contacts with people who might be involved in US covert operations. Some of you think that since I “was there with Reagan,” I know everything about what goes on in government. This is not the case for anyone in government.

Those of you who are so interested in Las Vegas must figure it out on your own. Keep in mind that there can be just as much fake news on the Internet as on CNN, etc.

I can offer some guidance as to the sort of things you could examine to help you to come to a conclusion. Unless normal police investigation was not undertaken, there will be crime scene photos that should show blood trails and blood pools. The kill area should coordinate with the alleged position of the shooter. Bullets that entered the ground should show the trajectory and direction that the bullet traveled.

If none of this evidence is available, turn to the available evidence. Do the videos of the people crouching and running show any one who is hit? Do you hear voices crying out, “I’ve been hit, help me!”? If not, why not? 573 casualties is a large number.

MAJOR ALERT: Greyerz Warns Swiss Bank Says It Will No Longer Hand Over Clients’ Physical Gold
October 08, 2017

With continued uncertainty around the globe, today the man who has become legendary for his predictions on QE, historic moves in currencies, told King World News that a Swiss bank has said it will no longer hand over clients’ physical gold. Greyerz also issued serious warnings about many other Swiss banks.

What The Hell Is Going On With Swiss Banks?

October 8 (King World News) – Egon von Greyerz: “Don’t hold gold in a Swiss Bank or in any bank in any country. We regularly see examples both in mid-tier and large Swiss banks that should make bank clients very concerned. Here are some examples:

A client stores physical gold in a bank but when he wants us to organize a transfer to private vaults, the gold doesn’t exist and the bank must acquire it.

400 oz gold bars that were bought by the bank for the client in 2005, were cast in 2011, so the gold never existed.

The client is told he owns physical gold and silver but actually only has paper metals.

Swiss banks are also doing all they can to stop clients taking their gold out. One major bank refuses to transfer gold out if the client isn’t present. Another major bank recently told the client that they don’t transfer client gold out of the bank to anyone, even if the client demands it.

Swiss banks tell their clients that physical gold and silver held in the bank vaults on behalf of clients is not on the bank’s balance sheet and based on Swiss law it belongs to the client. Yes, that is correct, but how many times have we not seen that banks under pressure use client assets as security for their trading, especially when they are under pressure.

Gold and silver are wealth preservation assets. Therefore, they must not be held within a rotten and massively leveraged financial system. Physical gold and silver must be held in the most secure private vaults outside the banking system and with personal access to the metals by the beneficial owner…
