The global debt glut, plus the related money printing efforts by the world’s central banks to try to stimulate further credit growth at all costs, leads us to conclude that a major currency crisis — actually, multiple major currency crises — are practically inevitable at this point.
To understand better the anatomy of a currency collapse, we talk this week with Philip Haslam, author of the book When Money Destroys Nations. Haslam is an authority on monetary history, and more recently, has spent much time in Zimbabwe collecting dozens of accounts of the experiences real people had as the currency there failed. 
This week, Haslam and Chris Martenson discuss the process by which a hyperinflationary currency collapse occurs:

You know something’s just not right in your country when you see a headline about prisoners forced into gladiatorial combat while incarcerated upon threats of beatings & rape, and the first thing that comes to your mind is, “this reminds me of a similar story from last year.”…

One thing is clear, however, the financial media is doing its part to promote anti-gold terrorism with highly misleading and fraudulent news reports.

I checked last night the gold inventory levels of foreign deposits at the FRBNY.
The account shows that 9.577 tonnes of gold left its vaults, and there is no doubt that this gold belongs to Germany as they are the only official country so far that has asked for it back and has not already received what was wished.

Over nearly two decades, Melendez has been named as a defendant in a dozen federal lawsuits, accused of planting evidence, wrongfully killing unarmed civilians, falsifying police reports and conducting illegal arrests. Some suits were settled out of court. Others were dismissed.
In 1996, Melendez, who was known in Detroit as “RoboCop”, and his partner shot and killed Lou Adkins. While Adkins was on the ground, several witnesses said the officers shot him 11 times, according to the Detroit Free Press. The case was settled for $1.05m, court records show.
