Researcher and You Tuber Hatrick Penry, from Hatrick Penry Unbound.com joins us to discuss what he calls the world’s largest provable coverup – Fukushima Plumegate.
Hatrick has assembled more than 445 pages of government and regulatory documents through FOIA which show the frightening realities of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in the days, weeks and months following the devastating March 11, 2011 Tsunami and resulting hydrogen explosions which devastated Daiichi Units 3 and 4. There is more to the official story than meets the eye, including documentation which suggests a ‘Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Drill‘ was taking place on the same day and place, on March 11, 2011. Please share this one with those you love.

Everyone agrees that the winter just now winding down (hopefully) has been brutal for most Americans. And while it’s easy to conclude that the Polar Vortex has been responsible for an excess of school shutdowns and ice related traffic snarls, it’s much harder to conclude that the it’s responsible for the economic vortex that appears to have swallowed the American economy over the past three months. But this hasn’t stopped economists, Fed officials, and media analysts from making this unequivocal assertion. In reality the weather is not what’s ailing us. It’s just the latest straw being grasped at by those who believe that the phony recovery engineered by the Fed is real and lasting. The April thaw is not far off. Unfortunately the economy is likely to stay frozen for some time to come.

The U.S. nonfarm payrolls increased jobs by 175,000 in February and beat its expectations. Job growth picked up momentum in February as we are starting to pull away from cold weather situations. This increase in the job rate is a huge rebound from the sluggish numbers we were seeing the past couple of months were employment only increased by 129,000 jobs in January, revised up from 113,000, and 84,000 in December, up from the earlier estimate of 75,000.
This rebound in payrolls did not come without a negative factor. The nation’s unemployment rate ticked up to 6.7% in February from 6.6% in January. We moved in the correct direction but as the labor force grows and more people begin to join the workforce and stop being disgruntled, real unemployment numbers will begin to show. Overall this job report was a good one that gave hints that spring is just around the corner and that the Feds can keep on tapering.

This ain’t your grandfather’s military. It’s not your father’s or even your older brother or sister’s military. Today’s military, Obama’s troops, look nothing like the military we have come to know, love and respect, and I feel for so bad for our troops.
Obama’s new military has become a politically correct social experiment. And those that don’t buy into the “changes” are purged.
Over the past five years of Obama’s reign, he has overseen the ouster, according to sources at WND, of approximately 200 generals, flag and senior officers.

Most of us have our specialties and areas of so called ‘expertise’. We tend to know more about one thing or another based on what we find to be of interest, and often these interests and acquired knowledge are intermingled with our career choices. While some of these areas of specialty may not necessarily be beneficial in a life after the SHTF, a well rounded set or blend of practical specialties may be an ideal thing…
In today’s modern world, careers are often focused on narrow subjects and laser efficient skills rather than a wider array of ‘know-how’ per individual. They say that knowing a little about a-lot could be a dangerous thing – but all joking aside I believe that this could be an ideal thing in a world in which you need to rely on yourself and your own abilities to survive – or to minimize dependency on others.

Is it possible to convince others of the benefits of liberty? Can the mass-man ever be convinced that the state impedes on his own flourishing?
I have my doubts. Government promises an escape from the drudgery of life. It also provides a means for people to feel as though they are a part of something bigger than themselves. And of course, there is always the monetary incentive to support a generous welfare state.
Beyond that, why does it seem so difficult to convince our friends, neighbors, peers, and co-workers of the common sense morality of property rights? Walter Block suspects we are biologically hard-wired to be averse to freedom.

There are many creative ways to screw up your retirement. Let me show you how it’s done.
Supporting adult children. My wife and I have friends with an unmarried, unemployed daughter who had a child. Our friends adopted their grandchild and are now in their late sixties raising a kid in grade school. The same daughter had a second child, and they adopted that one too. When she announced she was pregnant a third time, they finally said, “Enough! It’s time for a third-party adoption.”
Last time I spoke with them, their unemployed daughter and her boyfriend were living in their basement, neither contributing financially nor lifting a finger around the house. What began as a temporary bandage had become a permanent crutch. Our friends love their grandchildren; however, they’ve become bitter.

Household formation goes negative year-over-year at steepest rate since recession ended in 2009.
Young Americans have taken on the brunt of this Great Recession. Since the recession ended, young Americans continue to be saddled with tremendous amounts of student debt. With a weak blue collar sector, going to college may seem like the only viable road into the middle class. Yet one thing is certain and that is, the current younger generation in the United States is either unable or unwilling to form new households. I would go with the former rather than the latter since Americans are fiercely individualistic and staying with mom and dad late into your twenties and well into your thirties does not have a mass appeal. Yet through the fog of debt based euphoria, the economy appears to be recovering for a small segment of the population. Real estate is up largely on the backs of investors leveraging easy money from uncle Fed. The latest figures show that household formation is contracting at the fastest rate since the recession officially ended in 2009. What is going on? Isn’t the stock market recovery an accurate barometer of the health of the real economy? Real estate values going up only mean that you have fast money pushing out regular buyers and also, making rents more expensive for a generation that is already having a tough time moving out on their own.

Max interviews precious metals expert, Ned Naylor-Leyland of QuilterCheviot.com about how the harmonisation of law across Europe has ironically driven the manipulation of the gold fix out into the open and how the rigged gold fix has meant that gold was not able to be classified as tier one capital.
by James Stafford, Oil Price:
How much faith can we put in our ability to decipher all the numbers out there telling us the US is closing in on its cornering of the global oil market? There’s another side to the story of the relentless US shale boom, one that says that some of the numbers are misunderstood, while others are simply preposterous. The truth of the matter is that the industry has to make such a big deal out of shale because it’s all that’s left. There are some good things happening behind the fairy tale numbers, though—it’s just a matter of deciphering them from a sober perspective.
In a second exclusive interview with James Stafford of Oilprice.com, energy expert Arthur Berman
Oilprice.com: Almost on a daily basis we have figures thrown at us to demonstrate how the shale boom is only getting started. Mostly recently, there are statements to the effect that Texas shale formations will produce up to one-third of the global oil supply over the next 10 years. Is there another story behind these figures?

There is something rather absurd about the ever-so-slightly loosening death grip that the mainstream financial media has around the issue of precious metals price manipulation. The painfully reluctant (and largely incomplete) reports on the subject have fueled a series of seemingly derivative-like conspiracies.
It’s not as if the issue is really that complicated. Therefore, it must be part and parcel – an extension of the mechanism. Perhaps the hope is that partially educating or entertaining the masses, followed by rebuttals from a string of authorities, would put the issue to bed? But clearly, it cannot be that complex.
Most precious metals investors and market observers have been somewhat caught off guard by the strange emergence of more than a few stories devoted to precious metals price manipulation occurring in the mainstream financial press of late.

While the West considers sanctions against Russia over the occupation of Crimea in Ukraine, they need to realize that it will be a double-edged sword.
Today, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that EU countries considering sanctions should think first of the damage they may incur if such measures were imposed.
He is absolutely correct. The situation is summed up in this image from Reuters.

Perhaps it is time to finally admit that anyone who thought Putin’s Tuesday press conference, which the market so jubilantly assumed was a case of “blinking” and de-escalating tensions with the west, was wrong. If there is still any confusion, following yesterday’s news that Gazprom officially threatened Ukraine with cutting off its gas supplies, as well as the storming of a Ukraine base by Russian troops – luckily with no shots fired so far – then today’s developments should any remaining doubts. Moments ago AP reported that as the latest, third in a row, group of OSCE inspectors tried to enter Ukraine, they were not only barred from doing so, but warnings shots were fired to emphasize the point by pro-Russian forces.

The RCMP have re-classified the Swiss Arms Classic Green carbine, as a “prohibited” weapon and approximately 20 other guns are soon to be on the chopping block as they are preparing to collect these guns by turning thousands of law abiding Canadians into criminals overnight.

It looks like the official sources grossly underestimated the amount of Indian silver buying in 2013. When the Indian Government put restrictions on gold imports in 2013, their citizens switched to buying silver.
Thomson Reuters GFMS estimated that total Indian silver imports would be 5,200-5,400 metric tons in 2013. However, Koos Jansen at InGoldWeTrust, recently published an article stated that the Indians actually imported 6,125 metric tons of silver in 2013.
Koos located the total silver import figures from India’s customs department DGCIS. The 2012 & 2013 figures were taken from Koos Jansen’s site and data for 2007-2011 are from Thomson Reuters GFMS.

The head of Kirby Analytics says that the Fed is merely a puppet of a more nefarious institution, the Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF). Run by the US Treasury, the ESF controls not only global interest rates, but the US equities markets and the precious metals markets, in fact any index of its choice. He agrees with John Williams from Shadowstats, that hyperinflation is inevitable, resulting with a lofty silver price zenith of as high as four digits.

I am an avid reader and have not attempted to contribute to this fine blog because I personally had little to offer from the perspective of knowledge or skills that many more knowledgeable individuals have already contributed. However, as I have been closely monitoring the current events in Venezuela I realized that this is an area where I have knowledge and skills that many others don’t. Also, there is a great deal about these events that,in my opinion, correlate to the United States’ political and economic directions and possible outcomes. The people of Venezuela are learning lessons the hard way.
My background very briefly: I am a U.S. citizen married to a Venezuelan, am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese, and have been actively collecting information on the situation in Venezuela since Chavez came to power in 1999. Although I took a hiatus, there was a time when I had a network of informants that resulted in DEA and FBI investigations into issues we reported. I still have family and contacts there and worry about them. My sources, therefore, are coming directly from the Venezuelan Spanish language news (online and broadcast), relatives and friends, and by monitoring their internal communications within Venezuela social media.
