AMENPER: Revelación sobre nacimiento de Obama en Kenia
Kogelo, Kenia—Durante la visita del presidente Barack Hussein Obama al pueblo de su alegado padre en Kenia, un miembro de la familia Obama produjo lo que se afirma que es la foto del momento del nacimiento de Barack Hussein Obama. El miembro de la familia no quiere ser identificado, pero inequívocamente afirmó que “si nos fijamos en los orejas, no quedan dudas. Este es Junior Barack nacido de una elefante keiniana”,
Se plantea nuevas preguntas sobre el lugar del nacimiento del Presidente, y si su madre era realmente una ciudadano de los Estados Unidos o si Barack fue adoptado por Ann Durham.
Cuando se le preguntó por el cuerpo de prensa de casa blanca a comentar sobre el asunto, el portavoz Josh Earnest aseguró a reporteros que “esta foto se podría haber tomado en cualquier lugar. No hay ninguna característica distintiva en esta foto que identificara positivamente que fue tomada en Kenia.”. Cuando se le preguntó si el presidente cree que la foto es auténtica, dijo, “el Presidente está tan sorprendido por estas revelaciones como cualquiera y dice que no recuerda el evento lo suficientemente bien como para poder hacer un comentario, la primera vez que oyó sobre el particular es cuando leyó la noticia en el periódico como todos los demás.”
Fuentes sin identificar han hecho declaraciones sobre esta noticia en relación con rumores de cierta información de un cirujano plástico que pudiera haber hecho una operación cosméticas reduciendo algo las orejas de elefante del presidente.
Fotos indican que las orejas de Barack Obama, aunque aún mantienen un tamaño mayor que lo normal, han reducido las características elefantinas que se pueden apreciar en fotos anteriores.
Obama Just Made Many American Hearts Stop With 9 Unimaginable Words
Obama’s self-serving comments came during…
Barack Obama certainly seems to delight in traveling abroad and taking potshots at his country and his political rivals — making the kind of remarks many would no doubt consider unpresidential in a foreign setting. Obama also seems to demonstrate an acute lack of awareness that, in leveling these kinds of critiques and letting loose with off-the-cuff comments while visiting other countries and mingling with other leaders, he does the very thing he claims to find objectionable in others.
While on his African tour, the president left his Ethiopian counterpart standing awkwardly and uncomfortably silent in front of the international press corps while Obama launched into a blistering critique of Republican White House hopefuls. As the Associated Press reported in an article carried onYahoo! News, Obama took an abrupt detour from the reason for the joint appearance with Ethiopia’s leader and went hyper-political as he slammed Republicans Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump.

“Obama’s comments marked his most direct engagement in the race to succeed him,” according to the AP account of the president’s near-meltdown while on foreign soil. “Until now, he’s largely limited his commentary to policy differences with Republicans, often sidestepping the names of specific candidates.”
The president was particularly angry at his opponents’ attempts to derail the Iran nuclear agreement he has fought so long to negotiate and now finds himself having to defend against powerful pushback.
But the Obama overseas comment that would likely get the most attention and raise the most eyebrows among conservatives who can’t wait for the president to leave office was what he said about running again.Fox News notes that Obama went “off-script” on Tuesday as he addressed the African Union — it was a spontaneous, self-serving boast that apparently included a rather odd reference to his own wealth.
“I actually think I’m a pretty good president. I believe if I ran again, I could win.”
“But I can’t,” he added.
Obama later said, “I don’t understand why people want to stay so long, especially when they’ve got a lot of money.”
Now why, one might wonder, would President Obama find it useful or productive to his overseas mission to say those nine words — “I believe if I ran again, I could win.” — as they served no apparent purpose except to let him inflate and polish his own ego?
During the same presentation to the African audience in Ethiopia, Obama said something else that many of his critics and opponents will likely jump on as self-incriminating evidence of his own executive overreach. The Fox News report on the president’s address quotes him as saying, without the slightest hint of irony or tinge of self-awareness about his behavior:
AMEMPER: El Guapo del Barrio
Cuando el primer mandatario de una nación en un viaje a un país extranjero utiliza su posición para atacar a enemigos políticos en su país de origen, está usando su cargo para agendas políticas domésticas, crea un conflicto de intereses entre su deber como oficial del estado y su política partidista. Cuando el pueblo entrega a un presidente el puesto para la administración temporal del país, este presidente tiene que poner su deber por delante del animal político y de la egolatría personal.
Obama en Kenia atacó por nombre de los aspirantes a las elecciones del 2016 del partido Republicano, y mencionó inclusive el nombre del partido, haciendo referencia de que no le gustaría dejar su presidencia a esos individuos por su oposición al acuerdo de Irán. Fue un discurso político, y lo peor es que no tenía un razonamiento viable, porque la oposición al acuerdo de Irán no es sólo doméstica del partido Republicano, pero de todos los aliados de Estados Unidos en Europa y el Medio Oriente.
Entonces, si ridiculiza a los candidatos republicanos, implícitamente está ridiculizando a sus aliados extranjeros.
Pero se trata de un presidente que no tiene el concepto de su posición, no acepta la crítica usual y necesaria que sistemáticamente recibe un mandatario en un país democrático. Nunca ha habido un presidente de esta nación que haya recibido las críticas con más arrogancia que Obama. Hay que recordar simplemente a George W. Bush, como fue uno de los presidentes más criticado y ridiculizado, y como supo aceptar el reto de su posición como lo hicieron sus antecesores.
Pero Obama prometió cambio, y ha habido cambio. Lo peor es que el cambio como todo tiene sus consecuencias, y como un boomerang el cambio se vuelve hacia un nuevo cambio por compensación.
Por eso vemos que un candidato como Donald Trump que no hubiera podido tener un apoyo de la ciudadanía en condiciones normales, se haya en primer lugar en las encuestas.
El público está ofendido y cansado de la conducta y las políticas de esta administración, y está vertiendo su protesta en el candidato que más claramente denuncia estas políticas.
No creo de Donald Trump pueda o deba de ser el candidato del partido Republicano, pero el mensaje que están enviando los votantes, debe de ser oído por los otros candidatos.
Igual que Obama no anda con paños calientes para atacar a los que se le opones, llegando al punto de sacar los trapos sucios fuera de casa, la oposición debe de no aguantar golpes y responder al mismo nivel, después de todo con conductas como la de Kenia, Obama ha creado del rasero de cómo responder en la discusión, y por eso Donald Trump está en primer lugar, porque ha respondido como hay que responder en este nuevo escenario que ha cambiado las reglas.
No es algo que queremos ver, llevar una campaña a un tipo de trifulca callejera baja la dignidad de la nación, pero un guapo del barrio quiere imponer su guapería, sólo puede ser combatido a su mismo nivel.
The ‘Unprecedented Move’ a Conservative Congressman Just Took to Oust John Boehner From Leadership

A conservative congressman from North Carolina on Tuesday filed a motion to oust Speaker John Boehner from his leadership position.
House Speaker John Boehner.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) filed a resolution to declare “the office of Speaker of House of Representatives vacant,” effectively stripping Boehner from his Speakership.
The motion accused Boehner of having “endeavored to consolidate power and centralize decision-making, bypassing the majority of 435 Members of Congress and the people they represent.”
It added, among other things, that “through inaction” the Ohio representative has made Congress “subservient to the Executive and Judicial branches.”
The action to oust Boehner was referred to by seasoned congressional reporter Chad Pergram as an “unprecedented move.”
Rollcall reporter Matt Fuller tweeted that members “seem stunned.”
However, because Meadows did not file the resolution as a “privileged” motion, it will be sent to the Rules committee instead of receiving an immediate vote.
It was not clear who exactly supported Meadows’ resolution.
Neither Boehner nor Meadows immediately responded to a request for comment from TheBlaze Tuesday evening.
You will NOT BELIEVE who was best man at John Kerry’s daughter’s wedding – can the Secretary of State be impartial, read below
Written by Michele Hickford, Editor-in-Chief on July 28, 2015
You not might be aware that in 2009, the daughter of Secretary of State John Kerry, Dr. Vanessa Bradford Kerry, John Kerry’s younger daughter by his first wife, married an Iranian-American physician named Dr. Brian (Behrooz) Vala Nahed, an Iranian-American physician.
Of course you’re not aware of it.
Brian (Behrooz) Nahed is son of Nooshin and Reza Vala Nahid of Los Angeles. Brian’s Persian birth name is “Behrooz Vala Nahid” but it is now shortened and Americanized in the media to “Brian Nahed.” At the time his engagement to Bradford Kerry, there was rarely any mention of Nahed’s Persian/Iranian ancestry, and even the official wedding announcement in the October 2009 issue of New York Times carefully avoids any reference to Dr. Nahed (Nahid)’s birthplace (which is uncommon in wedding announcements) and starts his biography from his college years.
Gosh, I wonder why??
Gee, do you think Secretary Kerry should have recused himself from the negotiations with Iran at the very outset because of his long-standing relationshipto his Iranian counter-part, Mohammad Javad Zarif? Let me explain.
Zarif is the current minister of foreign affairs in the Rouhani administration and has held various significant diplomatic and cabinet posts since the 1990s. He was Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations.
Sponsored by RevContent
Secretary Kerry and Zarif first met over a decade ago at a dinner party hosted by George Soros at his Manhattan penthouse. What a surprise. I have to say, connecting the dots gets more and more frightening.
But it gets even worse. Guess who was the best man at the 2009 wedding between Kerry’s daughter Vanessa and Behrouz Vala Nahed? Javad Zarif’s son.
Does this bother anyone at all?
Apparently Kerry only revealed his daughter’s marriage to an Iranian-American once he had taken over as Secretary of State. But the subject never came up in his Senate confirmation hearing, either because Kerry never disclosed it, or because his former colleagues were “too polite” to bring it up.
As Front Page Magazine pointed out several months ago, the nuclear talks with Iran were a tragic farce, choreographed and orchestrated by Iran.
And unfortunately, we’re going to have to live with the consequences. At least, I hope we live.

Forecasting the shape the world will take in several years or decades is an audacious undertaking. There are no images to observe or precise data points to anchor us. We can only create a picture and a fuzzy one at best. This is, after all, our basic human empirical instinct: to draw effortlessly from the vivid imagery of our present world and past experiences while we squint and hesitate before faint, blobby images of the future.
In the world of intelligence and military planning, it is far less taxing to base speculations on the familiar — to simulate a war game that pivots on an Iranian nuclear threat, a seemingly unstoppable jihadist force like the Islamic State and the military adventurism of Russia in Eastern Europe — than it is to imagine a world in which Russia is weak and internally fragmented, the jihadist menace is contained by its own fractiousness and Iran is allied with the United States against a rising Sunni threat. In the business world, it is much simpler to base trades and strategies on a familiar environment of low oil prices and high interest rates. Strategists in many domains are guilty of taking excessive comfort in the present and extrapolating present-day assumptions to describe the future, only to find themselves unequipped when the next big crisis hits. As a U.S., four-star general once told me in frustration, “We always have the wrong maps and the wrong languages when we go to war.”
So how do we break out of this mental trap and develop the confidence to sketch out plausible sets and sequences of unknowns? The four-dimensional world of quantum mechanics may offer some guidance or, at the very least, a philosophical approach to strategic forecasting. Brilliant physicists such as Albert Einstein, Louis de Broglie and Erwin Schrodinger have obsessed over the complex relationship between space and time. The debate persists among scientists over how atomic and subatomic particles behave in different dimensions, but there are certain underlying principles in thecollection of quantum theories that should resonate with anyone endowed with the responsibility of forecasting world events.
Quantum Principles and Political Entities
Einstein described space-time as a smooth fabric distorted by objects in the universe. For him, the separation between past, present and future was merely a “stubbornly persistent illusion.” Building on Einstein’s ideas, celebrated U.S. physicist and Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman, some of whose best ideas came from drawings he scribbled on cocktail napkins in bars and strip clubs, focused on how a particle can travel in waves from point A to point B along a number of potential paths, each with a certain probability amplitude. In other words, a particle will not travel in linear fashion; it will go up, down and around in space, skirting other particle paths and colliding into others, sometimes reinforcing or canceling out another completely. According to Feynman’s theory, the sum of all the amplitudes of the different paths would give you the “sum over histories” — the path that the particle actually follows in the end.
The behavior of communities, proto-states and nation-states (at least on our humble and familiar planet Earth) arguably follows a similar path. We have seen state lets; countries and empires rise and fall in waves along varied frequencies. The crest of one amplitude could intersect with the trough of another, resulting in the latter’s destruction. One particle path can reinforce another, creating vast trading empires. Latin America, where geopolitical shifts can develop at a tortoise’s pace in the modern era, tends to emit long radio-like waves compared to the gamma-like waves of what we know today as a highly volatile Middle East.
Applied Quantum Theories: Turkey
If we apply the nation-state as an organizing principle for the modern era (recognizing the prevalence of artificial boundaries and the existence of both nations without states and states without nations), the possibilities of a state’s path are seemingly endless. However, a probability of a state’s path can be constructed to sketch out a picture of the future.
The first step is to identify certain constants that have shaped a country’s behavior over time, regardless of personality or ideology (an imperative to gain sea access, a mountainous landscape that requires a large amount of capital to transport goods from point A to point B, and a fertile landscape that attracts as much competition as it provides wealth). The country’s history serves as a laboratory for testing how the state has pursued those imperatives and what circumstances have charted its path. What conditions were in place for the state to fail, to prosper, to avoid being entangled in the collisions of bigger states, to live in relative peace? We take the known and perceived facts of the past, we enrich them with anecdotes from literature, poetry and song, and we paint a colorful image of the present textured by its past. Then comes the hard part: having the guts to stare into the future with enough discipline to see the constraints and enough imagination to see the possibilities. In this practice, extrapolation is deadly, and an unhealthy obsession with current intelligence can be blinding.
Take Turkey, for example. For years, we have heard political elites in the United States, Eastern Europe and the Middle East lament a Turkey obsessed with Islamism and unwilling or incapable of matching words with action in dealing with regional competitors like Iran and Russia. Turkey was in many ways overlooked as a regional player, too consumed by its domestic troubles and too ideologically predisposed toward Islamist groups to be considered useful to the West. But Turkey’s resurgence would not follow a linear path. There have been ripples and turns along the way, distorting the perception of a country whose regional role is, in the end, profoundly shaped by its position as a land bridge between Europe and Asia and the gatekeeper between the Black and Mediterranean seas.
How, then, can we explain a week’s worth of events in which Turkey launched airstrikes at Islamic State forces and Kurdish rebels while preparing to extend a buffer zone into northern Syria — actions that mark a sharp departure from the timid Turkey to which the world had grown accustomed? We must look at the distant past, when Alexander the Great passed through the Cilician Gates to claim a natural harbor on the eastern Mediterranean (the eponymous city of Alexandretta, contemporarily known as Iskenderun) and the ancient city of Antioch (Antakya) as an opening into the fertile Orontes River Valley and onward to Mesopotamia. We move from the point when Seljuk Turks conquered Aleppo in the 11th century all the way up to the crumbling of the Ottoman Empire in the wake of World War I, when a fledgling Turkish republic used all the diplomatic might it could muster to retake the strategic territories of Antioch and Alexandretta, which today constitute Hatay province outlining the Syrian-Turkish border.
We must simultaneously look at the present. A contemporary map of the Syria-Turkey border looks quite odd, with the nub of Hatay province anchored to the Gulf of Iskenderun but looking as though it should extend eastward toward Aleppo, the historical trading hub of the northern Levant, and onward through Kurdish lands to northern Iraq, where the oil riches of Kiruk lie in what was formerly the Ottoman province of Mosul.
We then take a long look out into the future. Turkey’s interest in northern Syria and northern Iraq is not an abstraction triggered by a group of religious fanatics calling themselves the Islamic State; it is the bypass, intersection and reinforcement of multiple geopolitical wavelengths creating an invisible force behind Ankara to re-extend Turkey’s formal and informal boundaries beyond Anatolia. To understand just how far Turkey extends and at what point it inevitably contracts again, we must examine the intersecting wavelengths emanating from Baghdad, Damascus, Moscow, Washington, Arbil and Riyadh. As long as Syria is engulfed in civil war, its wavelength will be too weak to interfere with Turkey’s ambitions for northern Syria, but a rehabilitated Iran could interfere through Kurdistan and block Turkey farther to the east. The United States, intent on reducing its burdens in the Middle East and balancing against Russia, will reinforce the Turkish wavelength up to a point, while higher frequencies from other Sunni players such as Saudi Arabia will run interference against Turkey in Mesopotamia and the Levant. While Russia still has the capacity to project military power outward, Turkey’s moves in Europe and the Caucasus will skirt around Russia for some time, but that dynamic will shift once Russia becomes consumed with its own domestic fissures and Turkey has more room to extend through the Black Sea region.
Thinking beyond Limitations
This sketch of Turkey is by no means static or deterministic. It is, simply but critically, the product of putting a filter on a lens to bring the state’s trajectory into clearer view. The assumptions we form must be tested every day by incoming intelligence that can lead to refinements of the forecast at hand. A quantum interpretation of the world will tell you that nothing is deterministic, and we cannot know for sure that a certain outcome will or will not happen based on the limited information we possess. We can only assign a probability of something happening, and that probability will evolve over time. As Stephen Hawking said, “It seems Einstein was … wrong when he said, ‘God does not play dice.’ Not only does God definitely play dice, but He sometimes confuses us by throwing them where they can’t be seen.”
We can apply the same process to the ebb and flow of the Far East, with a resurgent Japan responding to the reverberations of a powerful China and an artificially divided Korea sandwiched in between. Or, the push and pull between France and Germany on the European mainland as centripetal forces subsume the EU project.
Too often, we see the future as we see the past — through the distorted lens of the present. That is the flaw in our human instinct that we must try to overcome. Constraints will apply, and probabilities will be assigned. But whatever the time, direction or dimension we are operating in when forecasting geopolitical events, we must simultaneously exist in the past, present and the future to prepare for a world that we have yet to know.

Una respuesta del Pastor Alain Toledano Valiente a Percy Francisco Alvarado Godoy.
Esta es la respuesta que le envié a un comunista que invadió mi buzón con un correo titulado:Otra falacia de Radio Martí: supuesta “represión” contra minorías religiosas por Percy Francisco Alvarado Godoy. (Foto abajo a la derecha)
Le saludo aunque no lo conozco; ni tampoco le he aprobado que me escriba porque usted ni es amigo mío ni deseo mantener ningún tipo de comunicación con Ud., pero ya que en su dedicación al espionaje Estatal usted invade mi privacidad, aprovecho para que sepa algunas cosas.
La idea de llamar mentiroso y mercenario a todo el cubano que reclama su derecho dentro de la Isla es muy común para personas como usted que goza de todo el respaldo del gobierno. Estoy convencido de que el correo y el servicio de Internet que usted usa no lo paga su bolsillo sino el Estado, la merienda y comida que se come para mantenerse concentrado en el ataque a todo lo que se exprese no acorde a los intereses de la dictadura Castrista viene de la misma fuente, el Estado, de su mal llamada Revolución. Es el mismo poder el que , el 21 de Noviembre del 2007 fue capaz de convocar a todos los Órganos estatales y a la Seguridad del Estado y a la policía política para desalojarnos de nuestra casa, aprovechando cobardemente mi ausencia, ya que esperaron que saliera temprano hacia el Templo y penetraron con todo tipo de hierros e instrumentos tanto para desarmar, como para matar, en la casa, donde estaba mi esposa y mis niñas; con las cuales estuvimos toda esa madrugada bajándoles la fiebre altísima que tenían, quienes maltrataron a mis hijas, halándolas de sus camitas y al abrir sus ojitos y pedir sus chancletas le dijeron “que con chancleta y todo ese día irían con sus padres para la calle”; esto propicio que quedaran nuestras hijas traumatizadas; una de ellas quedo tartamuda, y al ver un policía en la calle irrumpían a gritos y se orinaban, todo señor, por el buen servicio de su Revolución.
Soy un hombre que nací y he crecido bajo este régimen y creo, que atacar a alguien, a tal punto, de usar todas las fuerzas de un gobierno solo porque se exprese reclamando sus derechos; por el solo hecho de que temen a que se sepa la verdad, es una cobardía. Pero más cobardía es respaldar una mentira sabiendo que la es, para de esta manera sustentar a la familia, porque usted, o señor, es pagado por el Estado para que lo defienda, y eso, hasta usted lo llama mercenario.
Pregúntele a sus revolucionarios jefes, porque demolieron nuestro templo en Santiago de Cuba y le dirán que por ilegalidad o contrarrevolución; pregúntele donde están todos los bienes de la iglesia que ellos se llevaron y hasta el día de hoy no han devuelto y que nosotros lo vemos hoy en nuestra ciudad en la casa de sus jefes revolucionarios, y hasta lo hemos visto comercializándolos en la bolsa negra en la calle, LO NUESTRO.
Tuvimos que vivir como animales, en medio de los alacranes, las ratas, las ranas y sapos, el maja y cuantos bichos mas, sin dormir para que ninguno picara ni mordieran a una de nuestras hijas de 3, 4 y 12 años. En aquel entonces, Berenice, la tercera, ha estado en tres ocasiones en Terapia casi muriendo por una alergia respiratoria que debutó por las malas condiciones de vida. Recuerdo que en aquel entonces tenía un vecino que ha estado preso desde muy pequeño por robo y otras causas, este, señor político, le dio un machetazo a nuestro panadero y le pico tres dedos, y la policía ni lo tocó porque su madre poseía un buen poder monetario y quien sabe lo que se dio para que se hicieran los ciegos. Ninguna jinetera que vivía a nuestro alrededor, las cuales compraron sus apartamentos fue tocada, ningún comprador de casa ha sido tocado hasta hoy, y le confieso, que de ellos estábamos rodeado; y Cuba está llena de estos casos, pero no, su Revolución no los toca, solo toca al que le amenaza su estancia en el poder.
Señor mercenario, sé que al leer este correo usted informará, como mercenario que es, de mis palabras y mi posición para que su Revolución arremeta con furia contra mí. Soy un cubano dentro de la Isla y usted puede estar seguro que sus jefes me conocen, así que no tendrá que darles tantos datos de mí, soy el Apóstol Alain Toledano Valiente, ( foto arriba a la derecha junto a su esposa) quien no es pagado por ningún sistema para decir estas cosas. Tengo mis principios, que son mi verdadero pago; los cuales han tratado sus dirigentes de ensuciar con sus falacias y que sé que armarán ahora una cacería de brujas contra mí a partir de su patriótico informe pagado por el Estado cubano.
Tenga vergüenza y no me escriba más sus disparates castristas e ignorantes y mentirosos a mi buzón, limite su espionaje a mi persona, no invada más mi espacio ni viole mis derechos a la privacidad, chao, político desconocido, espero no saber nunca más de usted.

MR. STICKAROUND: A THIRD TERM FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA?
Posted on Facebook tonight (6/27) is Occupy Democrats’s trial balloon or third-partied promotion for a third term for President Barack Obama. To thus follow the left’s Hemispheric Zeitgeist, the president, a noted constitutional law scholar, would have to bypass the Constitution’s 22nd Amendment (adopted 1947) limiting the incumbent to two consecutive terms; however, there’s time to undo the inconvenience (as Prohibition was) and the president may be motivated or encouraged by the rationale of his Cuba statement lastDecember 17, that “that was long before most of us were born,” by the example of Mexico’s Álvaro Obregón, or perhaps by friend Raúl Castro’s brother’s “¿Elecciones para qué?”. In the event, there must be unease in Mrs. Hillary Clinton’s camp tonight, as if the Bernard Sanders surge and those pesky continuous seemingly minor but newsworthy leaks weren’t enough.

The IMF Threatens to Kill the U.S. Dollar
BY DAMON GELLER
According to Bloomberg and other sources, the International Monetary Fund is expected to announce a reserve currency alternative to the U.S. dollar on October 20th of this year, which experts say will send hundreds of billions of dollars moving around the world, literally overnight. This announcement is expected to trigger one of the most profound transfers of wealth in our lifetime. Bloomberg reports that this decision comes on the heels of China pushing for their own currency to be elevated to reserve currency status. So if you want to protect your savings & retirement, you better get your money out of U.S. dollar investments and into the one asset class that rises as currencies collapse.
The IMF Holds Supreme Power. DAMOS GELLER
The International Monetary Fund, or IMF, is one of the most secretive and powerful organizations in the world. They monitor the financial health of more than 185 countries. They establish global money rules and provide “bail-out” assistance to bankrupt nations. Some are warning that any move by the IMF to supplant the U.S. dollar could be catastrophic to American investments.
According to Juan Zarate, who helped implement financial sanctions while serving in George W. Bush’s Treasury department, “Once the [other currency] becomes an alternative to the dollar, rules of the game begin to change.”
Leong Sing Chiong, Assistant Managing Director at a major central bank, said this dollar alternative “is likely to transform the financial landscape in the next 5-10 years.”
Currency expert Dr. Steve Sjuggerud warned, “I’ve been active in the markets for over two decades now, but I’ve never seen anything that could move so much money, so quickly. Hundreds of billions of dollars could change hands in a single day after this announcement is made. The announcement will start a domino effect, that will basically determine who in America gets rich in the years to come, and who struggles.”
Dr. Sjuggerud says if you own any U.S. “paper” assets—and that includes stocks, bonds, or just cash in a bank account–you should be aware of what’s about to happen and know how to prepare. A number of experts believe the recent spike in gold and silver prices is a direct result of the IMF’s action. Precious metals notoriously rise when the U.S. dollar falls.
The Death of the U.S. Dollar in One Frightening Graph
For the last 600 years, there have been six different global reserve currencies controlled by world superpowers. The latest – the U.S. dollar – has dominated world currency for over 80 years. The alarming fact is, global reserve currencies have collapsed every 80-90 years for the last six centuries! What does this mean for America and the dominance of the U.S. dollar? Based on recent evidence and long-standing historical trends, experts predict the imminent collapse of the U.S. dollar! What’s more alarming? Many Americans aren’t yet doing the one thing that will save their savings & retirement from U.S. dollar collapse.
Just take a look at the graph below. It shows the lifespan of dominant currencies going back 600 years. Notice that the U.S. dollar has now been the dominant currency for 88 years, about the same length of time as its predecessors:
It’s obvious why experts say that the U.S. dollar’s days as the world’s reserve currency are coming to a climactic end.
All Fiat Currencies Collapse
“Fiat” currency is paper currency backed by nothing tangible. As opposed to “sound money” which is was backed by gold or some other valuable commodity, a fiat currency is backed by nothing more than faith in the government. The U.S. dollar has been a fiat currency since Nixon closed the gold window in 1971 in what was the greatest heist in American history. The scary fact is, the average life span of a fiat currency is 40 years, and the U.S. dollar has now exceeded 40 years as a fiat currency!
Prior to 1933 and for well over 100 years, the dollar was backed by gold, and $20 bought you an ounce of gold. But after the government stole all U.S. citizens’ gold in 1933 for a $20 paper certificate, gold was revalued at $35 U.S.D., meaning the dollar was devalued by 43% overnight and all foreign and domestic holders of dollars were effectively robbed.
After Nixon closed the gold window completely in 1971, it took $67 to buy an ounce of gold, devaluing the U.S. dollar by 50% again. Today, it takes well over a thousand U.S. dollars to buy that same ounce of gold. Why? Because the U.S. dollar is now nothing more than a fast-declining Federal Reserve note backed by a corrupt government that is saddled with $18 trillion in unpayable debt — growing by $10 million per minute!
Protect Yourself Before It’s Too Late
This “Paper Money Experiment” has run its course. The Federal Reserve, the U.S. government, and Wall Street crooks have misused their power by mismanaging the dollar, and now there are global repercussions. The debt load sitting on top of the U.S. dollar is unsustainable and will continue to crush the dollar’s purchase power until no one wants to hold U.S. dollars, and they are no longer accepted for global trade. The dollar’s collapse means that every single one of your paper investments that are dollar-backed – stocks, mutual funds, money markets, cash accounts, etc. – will go down right along with the dollar! Meanwhile, the government and the banks will find a way to protect themselves at your expense.
So as we say goodbye to the U.S. dollar’s dominance, it doesn’t have to mean goodbye to your savings & retirement. Remove at least some of your savings & retirement from the dollar-backed, paper-based financial system and protect it with the one asset that has outlasted every fiat currency ever invented for the last 5,000 years: Gold.

‘First Kenyan-American’ president, Obama, tells Africans that America would elect him to third term
by Kelley MartinViews:
President Obama is pretty sure he could earn another term in the White House — if he wanted it.
Playing into years of speculation and criticism from the political far right, Obama tapped into a commonly circulated fear among his opponents: that he secretly wants to abolish the two-term limit on U.S. presidents and take over the White House indefinitely.
“Let me be honest with you; I do not understand this,” said Obama in a speech before delegates of the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. “I am in my second term. It has been an extraordinary privilege for me to serve as president of the United States. I cannot imagine a greater honor or a more interesting job. I love my work. But under our Constitution, I cannot run again. I can’t run again.”
People were really, really clapping for this. Maybe that’s because Obama used the moment to compare the rule of law in the U.S. with some African nations, where elections have not prevented incumbent leaders from entrenching themselves in office — even when they lose the popular vote.
“I actually think I’m a pretty good president; I think if I ran, I could win,” Obama added. “But I can’t. So there’s a lot that I’d like to do to keep America moving, but the law is the law.”
Then again, our president has a pen and phone; and he’s assured us he’s not afraid to use them.
Earlier, Obama told an energized crowd in Nairobi, Kenya, that he is “the first Kenyan-American to be president of the United States. That goes without saying.”
Hey, if identity politics works here, why can’t it work in Kenya? At least Obama can sell the idea to other nations, even if they’re far less diverse or tolerant than ours — that that’s how America works.
