BALTIMORE – “It’s over!” Raúl Ilargi Meijer, a regular contributor to David Stockman’s Contra Corner newsletter, explains that the “entire model our societies have been based on for at least as long as we ourselves have lived is over!”
None of this will come as a surprise for Diary regulars. We know nothing makes people poorer faster than too much “money.”

More haunting even than the terrified screams of lambs being led was the silence that followed their slaughter.
Such was the searing pain of relentless recollection for FBI agent Clarice Starling, the tortured lead played to Oscar perfection by Jodie Foster. In an agonizingly whispered scene that has forever left its imprint on the minds of horrified audiences, we hear the bleating of Starling’s long-dead tormentors.
Clarice’s hushed revelations to Hannibal reveal a desperate act by her young orphaned self. Unable to bear the horror, she’s running away from the bloodbath of spring lambs being slaughtered and her cousin’s sheep ranch. Desperate to do something, anything, she struggles to drive them from their pens to freedom: “I tried to free them…I opened the gate of their pen – but they wouldn’t run. They just stood there confused. They wouldn’t run…”

My previous article, “CDC commits new vaccine-autism crime,” details the CDC’s refusal to allow its own researcher and chief whistleblower, William Thompson, to testify in a court case involving a boy who was severely damaged by vaccinations.
Therefore, it’s time to remember William Thompson—again. Here are excerpts from two articles I wrote before the stunning film Vaxxed was released. Vaxxed is all about Thompson’s revelations and their implications.
(August 2015)…William Thompson, long-time CDC researcher, publicly admitted he hid evidence that indicted the MMR vaccine for its connection to autism.
It’s been a year since Thompson publicly accused his colleagues at the CDC of doing the same thing. Two of those colleagues, Frank DeStefano and Collen Boyle, are high-ranking CDC executives in the area of vaccine safety.
During this past year, mainstream reporters and defenders of the realm have taken two approaches: silence; and vague claims that Thompson’s statements are false.
Both of these approaches are slimy and disingenuous, because the man we want to hear from is Thompson himself. And we have not.
We want to hear from him in a public setting, in front of a hearing where he can speak at length, where he can fill in details, where he can air all his claims without censorship.
At the moment, the possibility of such a hearing is remote, because the US Congress is bought and sold.
The truth is that any form of authoritarian control—any type of “government,” whether constitutional, democratic, socialist, fascist, or anything else—will result in a set of masters forcibly oppressing a group of slaves. That is what “authority” is—all it ever has been, and all it ever could be, no matter how many layers of euphemisms and pleasant rhetoric are used in an attempt to hide it. – Larken Rose
It’s no secret that the US government continues to grow larger, more oppressive, and more authoritarian with each passing year.
If one were to attempt to write down all of the ways the government impedes liberty and stomps all over the people it is supposed to serve, it would take days…perhaps weeks…to accomplish.
So, this list is by no means exhaustive, but here are 8 ways the control-freak US government is sabotaging freedom and making life more difficult for citizens.
The War on Drugs
Cannabis has been illegal at the federal level since 1970, when Congress placed it under Schedule I. It was supposed to be a provisional classification. Back then, not much was known about the plant.
In 1972, the National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse released a report favoring decriminalization of cannabis. The Commission’s chairman, Raymond P. Shafer, presented a report to Congress and the public entitled “Marihuana, A Signal of Misunderstanding,” which favored ending marijuana prohibition and adopting other methods to discourage use.

Yesterday, when Philippine president Duterte finally took the plunge to announce his “separation” from the US (even if his government has backtracked somewhat today), he said that not only would he “realign” himself in China’s ideological flow but, in a nuance that was missed by many, said that “I will also go to Russia to talk to (President Vladimir) Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world – China, Philippines and Russia. It’s the only way.”
To be sure, an offical axis between China, Russia and a nation that until recently was a core US ally in the Pacific Rim – whose loss would be a huge slap in the face of Obama and whoever replaced him as president – would be music to Putin’s ears, which is why just minutes after Philippine president announced his stunning separation from the US, Russia’s ambassador to the country promptly said Moscow is ready to provide assistance to and fully cooperate with Manila.

Get ready – it seems that this will be an October Surprise to remember.
The Internet is under attack through the United States and UK… and there is every reason to think that more is coming.
Reports confirmed that a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) was carried out against the company Dyn, and disrupted much of the East Coast, and later the West Coast and other parts of the U.S. as well, taking down hundreds of major websites – including Paypal, Twitter, Spotify, Netflix, Amazon, Tumblr and Reddit and more.
It took hours for many of them to come back online.
According to USA Today:

Outspoken casino king Steve Wynn lashed out at The Fed, The Government, and Obamacare in a brief interview on Fox’s Hannity this week, following the third debate. Expressing disappointment that the debates (and campaigns in general) have been: “long on negativity and short on substance,” Wynn went on to exclaim as RealClearPolitics reports, that the printing of money by the U.S. Treasury under the guidance from the U.S. Federal Reserve and the national debt have not been properly addressed albeit a short segment at the final debate.

Despite a federal court decision issued on October 9th allowing the continued construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, the massive infrastructure project remains on hold today after the Obama administration caved to the demands of protesters and shut down access to federal lands. According to a letter written by a coalition of industry groups impacted by the construction halt and obtained by the Washington Examiner, the Obama administration’s refusal to allow construction workers access to federal land is a blatant abuse of power that “ignores the rule of law.”

Are we about to see the largest election day miracle of all time? Because as I will show in this article, that is precisely what it is going to take in order for Donald Trump to win. Before I go any further, I want to make it exceedingly clear that I am not saying what the outcome will be on November 8th. As I recently told a national television audience, I do not know who is going to win. In this article I am simply going to examine the poll numbers and the electoral map as they currently stand. But in this bizarre election things can literally change overnight, and it is entirely possible that we could still have another “October surprise” or two before it is all said and done. And without a doubt Donald Trump desperately needs something “to move the needle”, because if the election was held today Hillary Clinton would almost certainly win.
What we have witnessed so far during the 2016 election season has been absolutely unprecedented. Just consider some of the things that we have seen up to this point in time.
We have never had a bigger “October surprise” than the release of the lewd audio tape from 11 years ago in which Donald Trump claimed to grope women without their consent.
We have never seen the mainstream media openly attack a presidential candidate as much as they have attacked Donald Trump. In the past, the big mainstream news outlets at least pretended to be fair and balanced, but this year they have completely discarded all notions of objectivity. They should be completely and utterly ashamed of themselves, and no matter who wins the election they will never be able to get their integrity back.

After two major, allegedly, cyber attacks targeted a little known internet infrastructure company, Dyn, earlier today disrupting access to dozens of websites on Friday, and preventing some users from accessing PayPal, Twitter and Spotify, moments ago the DNS service provider said that a third attack has been launched. From Reuters:

Gold $1265.90 up $0.30
Silver 17.45 DOWN 5 cents
In the access market 5:15 pm
THE DAILY GOLD FIX REPORT FROM SHANGHAI AND LONDON
The Shanghai fix is at 10:15 pm est and 2:15 am est
The fix for London is at 5:30 am est (first fix) and 10 am est (second fix)
Thus Shanghai’s second fix corresponds to 195 minutes before London’s first fix.
And now the fix recordings:
Shanghai morning fix OCT 21 (10:15 pm est last night): $ 1267.78
NY ACCESS PRICE: $1264.25 (AT THE EXACT SAME TIME)
Shanghai afternoon fix: 2: 15 am est (second fix/early morning):$ 1269.33
NY ACCESS PRICE: 1264.60 (AT THE EXACT SAME TIME)
HUGE SPREAD TODAY!! 5 dollars
London Fix: OCT 21: 5:30 am est: $1263.95 (NY: same time: $1264.20: 5:30AM)
London Second fix OCT 20: 10 am est: $1266.05 (NY same time: $1266.35 , 10 AM)
Shanghai premium in silver over NY: 87 cents.
It seems that Shanghai pricing is higher than the other two , (NY and London). The spread has been occurring on a regular basis and thus I expect to see arbitrage happening as investors buy the lower priced NY gold and sell to China at the higher price. This should drain the comex.
Also why would mining companies hand in their gold to the comex and receive constantly lower prices. They would be open to lawsuits if they knowingly continue to supply the comex despite the fact that they could be receiving higher prices in Shanghai.

In the latest Clinton campaign sham, Press Secretary Nick Merrill can be seen in the video below blatantly feeding questions to reporters during a post-debate “press conference” Wednesday night on Air Hillary. The first question is planted with Andrea Mitchell (aka “old faithful”) when Nick Merrill shows her his cell phone. “Shockingly” Mitchell gets to ask the very next question and it’s related to Trump calling Hillary a “nasty woman” during the debate. Then, moments later, Merrill can be seen signaling another reporter after seemingly sending him/her a text.
Seriously, why doesn’t Nick Merrill just ask the questions himself so we can all just do away with this charade?
You better behave, Andrea Mitchell, he’s always watching you…

Growth and profits mask a variety of problems. They hide business inefficiencies and the money suck of corporateadminis-trivia. They also conceal unproductive staff.
But most of all growth and profits obscure the extreme value subtracting forces of bloated management teams. During good times it is unclear what these smug fellows do. During bad times it is lucidly clear that most of them ain’t worth a darn.
When the profits inevitably recede, the senior executives, with their silly 24 point project reviews and cumbersome project execution requirements, appear lost. They’re left exposed, with their pants down, and without a clue in the world as to what business it is they’re actually in. What the heck have they been doing all this time?
Where does the money come from? How is it spent? Over time, and in the absence of a watchful eye, the rising tide of growth gradually submerses the answers to these questions.
Then, when the answers are needed most, it is too late. While management was busy developing mindless risk management protocols and clumsy 9 step work flow approval processes the answers had drowned. But instead of drowning under the rising tide of growth, they’d sunk below a hemorrhaging sea of red ink.

Two days ago we reported that a Russian aircraft carrier flotilla was spotted in international watersoff the Norwegian coast on its way to Syria where it is expected to arrive in just under two weeks. NATO was not amused, and a diplomat quoted by Reuters said that Russia is “deploying all of the Northern fleet and much of the Baltic fleet in the largest surface deployment since the end of the Cold War,” and added that “this is not a friendly port call. In two weeks, we will see a crescendo of air attacks on Aleppo as part of Russia’s strategy to declare victory there.”
Two days later, and the Russian flotilla, the biggest “since the end of the Cold War” is already off the coast of Britain, where Royal Navy vessels were closely monitoring the fleet as it passed through the English Channel at around 9am on Friday.
Just like two days prior, the Russian fleet was not shy about being photographed and the Admiral Kuznetsov carrier, and Peter the Great, a Kirov class battlecruiser, were among the ships filmed off Ramsgate, Kent, in footage posted online. According to the Telegraph The Russian vessels were being shadowed by the Royal Navy as they headed towards the eastern Mediterranean via the Dover Strait.
The close ties between certain Google executives and the U.S. government (as well as Hillary Clinton’s campaign specifically), have been well documented over the past few years.

Two days ago, thrusters intended to slow a European lander as it neared Mars fired for less time than expected before contact with the vehicle was lost, leaving scientists uncertain whether it touched down safely or broke apart; it also left Eurosceptics bemused by what might be the latest symbolic failure of a European craft to escape the graviational hold of the imploding artificial union.
The Schiaparelli probe, which some have pronounced as “Scraparalli”, part of a broader mission to search for evidence of life (ideally of the pro-bail out variety) on the Red Planet, was to test technologies during the descent and on the surface for a rover scientists hope to send to Mars in 2020. Its descent marked only the second European attempt to land a craft on Mars, but it has shown no signs of life since it stopped transmitting around 50 seconds before Wednesday’s planned touchdown.
“We’ve had two overflights (by Mars orbiters) and there was no signal,” the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Spacecraft Operations Manager Andrea Accomazzo told journalists on Thursday.

Niger, Africa— DARPA, or the secretive Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which works under the umbrella of the U.S. Department of Defense, has created some spooky technology in its time — from tiny drones called ‘Gremlins,’ to ‘implantable, wireless neuroprosthetics’ that are lodged in a soldier’s brain to offer a reprieve from PTSD and other brain injuries resultant of the DoD’s war path. DARPA’s latest investment stands to take advantage of ample real estate in one of the world’s most impoverished nations.
DARPA has a publicly disclosed budget of at least $3 billion spent across 250 programs, as well as black budget programs with unknown financial figures. Now the government plans to spend $100 million building “one of the most important U.S. military construction efforts in Africa,” according to once-secret files obtained by the Intercept through the Freedom of Information Act.
The base will be constructed in the center of Niger, one of the only countries that is allowing MQ-9 Reapers — the newer, larger, and potentially more lethal model of drone than its Predator predecessor.
