In GoldSeek Radio interview, GATA secretary cites BIS, Comex developments (LISTEN)
Interviewed by GoldSeek Radio's Chris Waltzek, your secretary/treasurer discusses the increasing intervention of the Bank for International Settlements in the gold market over the past year, as well as the refusal of major financial news organizations to report it. The biggest power of central banking these days, your secretary/treasurer contends, is not its infinite power of money creation but the complicity of financial news organizations in central banking's abuse of its power. Also discussed is the explosion in the use of the "exchange for physicals" mechanism for settling Comex gold and silver contracts off the exchange, a development suggesting tightness in the market. All major central banks, your secretary/treasurer says, are participating in the gold price suppression scheme for the time being.... http://radio.goldseek.com/nuggets/powell.04.25.18.mp3

Turkish authorities recently seized about 50 properties – monasteries, cemeteries and churches – that belonged to the Syriac Orthodox Church, claiming the ownership deeds had lapsed.
LAWSUIT: 'ANTI-ISRAEL DEEP STATE' CONCEALING U.N. FRAUD
...The legal group initiated the request Feb. 5 following news reports that the Obama State Department “created a report concerning UNRWA relief to Palestinian ‘refugees’ but unnecessarily (and thus improperly) gave it a ‘Classified’ designation to prevent the information from reaching Congress and the public.”...
“Rather than providing Congress with the completed report, it appears the State Department classified the report and has withheld it from outside eyes, going so far, the media reports, as to ignore a 2017 congressional directive that the department produce an unclassified version of the report. The report is said to confirm that the number of Palestinian ‘refugees’ is only in the tens of thousands, rather than, as UNRWA claims, the millions,” ACLJ said. The State Department, said ACLJ, “has bought into the leftist, Palestinian, U.N. narrative that Israel is an aggressor nation – rather than one trying to protect its sovereignty and citizens – and that because Palestinians have no nation of their own (a choice made, ironically, by the Palestinian leadership itself in rejecting multiple two-state scenarios offered by Israel), they are ‘refugees’ – a specific legal term with international legal repercussions that is blatantly misused in this situation.” Calling Palestinians “refugees” is legally and factually incorrect, and needs to end, the organization said.... http://www.wnd.com/2018/04/lawsuit-anti-israel-deep-state-concealing-u-n-fraud/
Ambassador Danon presents satellite photo of alleged Iranian base near Damascus, indicates Israel would take military action to prevent Tehran from getting nukes
In a historic first, the Israeli government is moving forward with a plan to reconnect with tens of millions of people that apparently have Jewish ancestry. Such a project may not only drastically change the demographics of Israel but also bring about a prophecy in Obadiah suggesting that these people will fill up the Negev region in southern Israel, paving the way for the Messiah.
How Britain engaged in a covert operation to overthrow Assad
.....UK covert operations appear to have begun in late 2011, a few months after popular demonstrations started challenging the Syrian regime in March of that year. Already repressive, Assad's regime resorted to violence to try to quell the protests, routinely firing into crowds, detaining thousands and subjecting many to torture. As the number of dead at the hands of the regime mounted, so did opposition to it. The UK and its allies spotted an opportunity, which they had long been looking for, to remove an independent, nationalist regime in the region and deepen their overall control of the Middle East..... http://www.middleeasteye.net/columns/how-britain-engaged-covert-operation-overthrow-assad-1437573498
Saudi Arabia criticised for 48 beheadings in four months of 2018
Saudi Arabia has executed 48 people in the past four months, half of them on non-violent drug charges, Human Rights Watch has said. The US-based group urged the kingdom to improve what it called a “notoriously unfair criminal justice system”. Saudi Arabia has one of the world’s highest rates of execution: suspects convicted of terrorism, homicide, rape, armed robbery and drug trafficking face the death penalty... https://amp.theguardian.com/world/2018/apr/26/saudi-arabia-criticised-over-executions-for-drug-offences?__twitter_impression=true
On Friday, Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill came out in support of two constitutional amendments that will be on the November 6 ballot.

In a 2-1 decision, a panel from the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the law, which was designed as a fix for previous voter ID legislation struck down for being discriminatory. The panel said the new legislation enacted last year had “improvements for disadvantaged minority voters,” the latest chapter in a seven-year dispute over voter ID at the ballot box in Texas, the most-populous Republican-controlled state.
A Data Storage Revolution? DNA Can Store Near Limitless Data in Almost Zero Space
...... With a nascent technology leveraging DNA for data storage, this may soon become a problem of the past. By encoding bits of data into tiny molecules of DNA, researchers and companies like Microsoft hope to fit entire data centers in a few flasks of DNA by the end of the decade.... https://singularityhub.com/2018/04/26/the-answer-to-the-digital-data-tsunami-is-literally-in-our-dna/?utm_source=Singularity+Hub+Newsletter&utm_campaign=fa76321507-Hub_Daily_Newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_f0cf60cdae-fa76321507-58264949#sm.0001b03x24lhtef5u1y2fvl011kfh
A nasty strain of bacteria that can cause severe illness is what’s driving a food poisoning outbreak linked to romaine lettuce, health officials said Friday. The government now has reports of 98 people who got sick in 22 states. Forty-six people have been hospitalized, including 10 with kidney failure, which is an unusually high number of hospitalizations.
Member states have voted in favour of an almost complete ban on the use of neonicotinoid insecticides across the EU. Scientific studies have long linked their use to the decline of honeybees, wild bees and other pollinators. The move represents a major extension of existing restrictions, in place since 2013.
Report: Here Are 54 Anti-Gun Companies That Don’t Deserve Your Business
A pro-gun website, Second Amendment Check, has done a bit of research and weeded out some of the major companies that are decidedly anti-gun, and they’ve been kind enough to encourage the sharing of their results so everyone can get the word out. The website uses a grading scale from A+ to F based on Second Amendment-friendly criteria. Failing companies commit some sort of “Serious 2A violation” including banning lawful carry, refusing Second Amendment-friendly business, or promoting gun control — you’d be surprised how many companies fail according to their criteria. The list was created in 2014 with just 53 companies — they added Dick’s Sporting Goods this year after their anti-Second Amendment stunt, which is an odd move for a sporting goods store. Take a look at the list below:... http://patriotrising.com/report-here-are-54-anti-gun-companies-that-dont-deserve-your-business/
