Ann Barnhardt of the former Barnhardt Capital Management joins Finance & Liberty for a MUST LISTEN interview.
Barnhardt unleashes an epic rant on the usurpation of the United States by the Obama Regime, stating that there is no longer any rule of law or constitution in America.
Barnhardt, who shut down her brokerage in the wake of the MFGlobal hypothecation of customer assets, and advised SD readers that If You Still Trade These Markets, You’re Either Stupid Or On Drugs, makes the case that the United States of America now CEASES TO EXIST in the aftermath of the usurpation of our Constitutional Republic by the Obama Regime.
Barnhardt’s full interview is below: 

Putin Chess

Western Bankers vs. Eastern Alliance
We’ve already taken a close look at the battle lines being drawn between East and West, between NATO and the SCO, between D.C/Brussels and the BRICS.   Not only are these lines not going away, they are being reinforced with each passing day.  The tension has grown worse, not better. It’s obvious why all of this is happening, too.  We know that D.C. is desperate to keep its dollar as the world reserve currency, and that their current strategy in doing so is to tighten all the right screws, so that the new would-be challengers all cry “Uncle!”, and simply bow to their rightful masters at the Pentagon and the CIA.
There’s only one problem: the Russian bear is still standing, and appears ready for 10 more rounds!

Obama peace

Thanks to a dizzying barrage of lies, mainstream media fear-mongering and a couple of beheadings, the Obama Administration finally achieved its long sought after war in Syria.  The tactic that proved most effective in mobilizing the American public back into a shivering, post-9/11 fetal position, was the same tactic used by elites in the UK to convince Scotland against voting for independence.  That tactic, is fear.

WWIII

The real reason Russia and Syria are being targeted right now by the US war machine…
We are on a road that leads straight to the World War 3, but in order to see that and to fully understand what is at stake you have to look at the big picture and connect the dots.
The MUST SEE video by Storm Clouds Gathering below examines the history of the dollar, its relation to oil, and the real motives behind the wars of the past two decades.

In the second part of an explosive interview with Finance & Liberty’s Elijah Johnson (click here for Part 1), Jim Willie breaks down why Germany is repatriating their gold, and the implications of the Fed rehypothecating thousands of tons of gold over the past 20 years.   Willie claims that German intelligence in 2011 discovered the US’ brilliant plan of instigating a Ukranian coup, & turning the Western world against Russia & Gazprom- Germany responding by calling its gold reserves held on deposit at the NY Fed. 
Willie makes the astonishing claim that the death blows being sustained by the dollar are not accidental, but that Obama was placed into the office of President of the United States with the express purpose of destroying the US dollar!
Part 2 of Jim Willie’s Explosive Interview on Germany, Russia, & the dollar collapse is below: 

WW3

Russian soldiers and Ukrainian soldiers are now shooting at each other in eastern Ukraine.
Could this conflict ultimately lead us down the road to World War 3?
The Russians seem themselves as “the good guys” in this conflict and so does the western world.  But that is how most wars start.  Both sides usually feel morally justified at the start of a conflict.
In the final analysis, however, is it really going to matter very much who was “right” and who was “wrong” if the end result is World War 3?

obamaJames Risen is not just a phenomenal reporter, he is also an extremely courageous and honorable American patriot.
His case is a very disturbing one, and it has justifiably received a great deal of national attention.   In a nutshell, the Obama Administration is threatening the pulitzer prize winning journalist with prison unless he reveals the source behind one of his stories.
This is something no journalist worth his salt would ever do, but the fact our own government would resort to threats of incarceration in order to instill fear in the press to prevent it from doing its job is quite telling and extremely dangerous.
Mr. Risen understands this danger more than just about anyone else, which is why he has previously stated he is prepared to go to jail in order to defend the First Amendment from Obama, who he calls the greatest enemy to press freedom in a generation.”

I’ve never seen the television show Scandal, but apparently its creator, Shonda Rhimes, is hosting a $32,000 dollar a plate fundraiser for Obama in Los Angeles.
What purpose this fundraiser serves, one cannot be sure. Perhaps his administration feels his oligarch consolidation program has yet to achieve its fullest realization, thus necessitating the extra funds.   It’s hard to say.

So in reaction, an LA artist has decided to take matters into his or her own hands, by welcoming Barry to town in a special way, with posters all over town: 

bombshell willieIn a recent address, Sergei Glazyev, the  Economic Advisor to Russian President Putin warned that the US has begun another World War with their actions in the Ukraine, and stated that in order to solve the Ukraine conflict, Russia must defeat the heart or Nazism- the US. 

Kiev is clearly conducting a policy of genocide to eliminate the whole population of Donbass… They’re destroying hospitals, kindergartens, schools. The fate they’re preparing for the people of Donbass is serfdom… It is obvious that the United States is fully controlling the Kiev Nazis, Poroshenko personally, and the government, and is pushing them to pursue this war against Donbass to the very end… THIS IS A WAR BY THE UNITED STATES AGAINST US… So we have to understand that the key to resolving the catastrophe of Ukraine is to be found in Washington.
That’s where Nazism has to be defeated

Glazyev’s full MUST WATCH address is below: 

The criminality of the Obama Administration is at this point almost beyond description:

 The Obama administration has been quietly advising local police not to disclose details about surveillance technology they are using to sweep up basic cellphone data from entire neighborhoods, The Associated Press has learned.
Citing security reasons, the U.S. has intervened in routine state public records cases and criminal trials regarding use of the technology. This has resulted in police departments withholding materials or heavily censoring documents in rare instances when they disclose any about the purchase and use of such powerful surveillance equipment.

Yep, there’s that catch-all term again to justify anything, “security.”

According to a blockbuster report from WND, a Jordanian official who is terrified that ISIS will be coming for the Kingdom next, has insisted that the U.S. itself was instrumental in training ISIS fighters.
Wait, it gets even crazier. We learn that:
The source told WND that at least one of the training camps of the group Iraq of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Syria, the ISIS, is in the vicinity of Incirlik Air Base near Adana, Turkey, where American personnel and equipment are located…
The source said that after training in Turkey, thousands of ISIS fighters went to Iraq by way of Syria to join the effort to establish an Islamic caliphate subject to strict Islamic law, or Shariah.

One of the most significant realizations to emerge since the Edward Snowden revelations, is the understanding that we need more secure tools for would be whistle-blowers to more easily provide sensitive information in a secure and anonymous manner.
As such, we have seen the deployment of encrypted drop boxes by several media outlets.  I highlighted one of these a little over a year ago called Strongbox, which was a project announced by the New Yorker and was what Aaron Swartz was working on just before his death.
Recently, the Washington Post and the Guardian have released something similar called SecureDrop. The Washington Post described it as such:
Users may have noticed a button on The Washington Post homepage called “SecureDrop.” The new feature enables confidential sources to contact The Post and share documents in an encrypted fashion. The Post launched this feature to offer even more security and anonymity to sources.
Naturally, this sort of potential transparency and ease of exposing corruption and criminality is not welcome within the halls of government.  As such, the reaction from Obama Administration lawyers is to issue subpoenas for information so that they can avoid cracking the encryption and the U.S. court system altogether.

The Obama administration may be looking for an example (for gun control & confiscation) in Australia as the White House considers potential new firearm laws for the United States in the wake of the latest in a series of devastating school shootings.
US President Barack Obama cited gun rules in America’s down under ally during remarks that were broadcast on the web Tuesday afternoon only hours after a gunman entered a high school near Portland, Oregon and opened fire, killing a student.

“My biggest frustration so far is the fact that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage. We’re the only developed country on earth where this happens.  And it happens now once a week.  And it’s a one-day story.  There’s no place else like this,” the president said.

On Wednesday, Moscow deployed a grouping of 24 Baltic Fleet warships and vessels for military drills in its exclave on the Baltic Sea coast. The drills were launched on Tuesday in response to NATO’s international drills – Saber Strike 2014 and BALTOPS 2014 –near Russia’s border. 

When Barack Obama was running for president in 2008, he stated that under his plan “electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket”.  Well, now it looks like he is finally getting around to keeping his promise.  New EPA rules that are designed to cripple the coal industry could send electricity rates soaring by up to 40 percent in many rural areas.  And even though we have enough coal in the ground to provide hundreds of years of energy at current levels of consumption, Obama’s plan is going to force large numbers of coal plants to completely shut down because they are simply going to become too expensive to operate.
