    Or they could make you convert your dollars to yuan at the door if you wish to buy Coke. With a small conversion surcharge to the bank, of course ;) Seems the details are always a bit murky. Murky enough that some banker has to explain it.

    This is like saying that if my local Wal-Mart started pricing a 6 pack of Coke in yuan they're really expecting payment denominated in dollars. The yuan figure is just ornamental. :rolleyes: Currency exchange rates is a big way the bankers try to keep people confused. As if there's a yuge numerical difference between 100 yen and 1(.00) dollar, eg. Gold negates all that mess since an oz of gold never changes value. Only the currency prices change measured against gold. Eons old "magic", indeed. A tradition even!

    "They are listing prices in yuan but using dollar pricing to do so." That's the dumbest thing you've ever posted. Unless they post a price in troy ounces of gold, their own local currency or an SDR, the price will always be some variation of a current currency exchange rate. If it's not priced in dollars then it is not dollar priced. It's yuan priced, which can be converted into a dollar price. Do you even Forex bro?

    Scotrenewables' prototype tidal energy converter was involved in the first production of hydrogen BBC: Tidal energy site in Orkney in hydrogen 'first' 13 September 2017: A Scottish test and research centre has claimed a world "first" by generating hydrogen gas from tidal energy. The European Marine Energy Centre (Emec) said it achieved the feat at its tidal energy test site in Orkney late last month. It added that it demonstrated the potential for a clean replacement for polluting fuels. Emec's investment in hydrogen production capability was backed by the Scottish government. Funding of £3m was made available through Highlands and Islands Enterprise.

    You need to dump your bias in favor of facts, the sooner the better. But let's face it, that isn't going to happen. You've managed to sell yourself a lie, and are much too proud to admit you're wrong. You should take some solace in the fact that China now leads the world in this tech, you and your fellow Luddites have managed to cripple the US when it comes to solar. And the fact that you can't see that Solar and Fuel Cells work together like peanut butter and jelly says alot about your lack of understanding of both fuel cells AND solar energy. US Dept. of Energy: 2020 Utility-Scale Solar Goal Achieved SEPTEMBER 12, 2017: The Department of Energy announced today the solar industry has achieved the 2020 utility-scale solar cost target set by the SunShot Initiative. When DOE launched the SunShot Initiative, it set ambitious goals to make grid-connected solar electricity market-competitive with other forms of energy, without subsidies, by 2020. Three years earlier than expected, the average price of utility-scale solar is now 6 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh). Residential- and commercial-scale solar costs have also come down steadily, lowering to 16 and 11 cents per kWh respectively, and work continues to reach the 2020 cost targets of 10 and 8 cents. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory report, low module prices have been the largest driver of cost reductions, while the more stubborn “soft” costs—like labor, permitting, interconnection, customer acquisition, financing, and grid integration—remain challenges.

    Venezuela pricing oil in yuan. Seems to me that all these sanctions and threats of sanctions against various entities only serve as an excuse for them to switch away from petrodollars. Bankers always like to push the blame for major economic changes onto the "little guys", when it was a banker plan all along. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-09-15/venezuela-begins-publishing-oil-basket-price-yuan

    Growing up as a Catholic (then later converting to Christianity) in suburban Middle America I was raised to believe that the United States was founded as a Christian nation. I recall my Baptist pastor once preaching that the United States was getting less and less Christian and as a result of no longer following Christian values (he brought up how Founding Fathers such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson adhered to them) this country was on a decline. He went on to preach that the strong endorsement of Christianity was preserved by elected Presidents (bringing up FDR and Reagan as examples of "Great Christian Presidents" since they openly endorsed Christianity and did not acknowledge Bush 41, Clinton, Bush 43, nor Obama because they weren't "Christian enough" I reckon) and that this country is declining and headed towards a collapse due to society and elected officials no longer adhering to the Christian values that previous generations in America did. That said, I do have a quote from Founding Father John Adams from Article 11 in the Treaty of Tripoli that says otherwise: “As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen (Muslims); and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan (Mohammedan) nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.” http://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/bar1796t.asp However, here is a quote from Supreme Court Justice Joseph back in 1892:

    I hear many contradicting opinions in regards to this issue. Jefferson himself wrote the "Jeffersonian Bible". An edited version of The New Testament in which he removed the parts that he believed were superstition but still seemed to believe in the Christian doctrine, no? https://www.pbs.org/godinamerica/people/thomas-jefferson.html From the article: “Years later, Jefferson drew from the New Testaments in Greek, Latin, French and English to create The Life and Morals of Jesus, commonly known as the "Jefferson Bible." Based on this work, he acknowledged to a close friend, "I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus." For Jefferson, it was the moral message of Jesus, not claims of his birth, death and resurrection, that lay at the center of the Christian faith.” My philosophy professor brought up as an objection to one of my arguments that Thomas Jefferson probably wasn't a Christian. I argued that he was.

    You might want to reconsider your recollection of history. Rand brought up arming the Kurds to fight ISIS, not to attack Syrian military but with the carrot being assisting them diplomatically in obtaining sovereignty. Perhaps you are ascribing motives that he never stated. http://thehill.com/policy/defense/235365-rand-paul-kurds-would-fight-isis-like-hell-if-we-promised-them-a-country I also thought at the time that Rand was making a tongue-in-cheek suggestion, not seriously advocating for arming the Kurds, due to the extreme difficulty in following through on the sovereignty assistance, which he acknowledged. -------------- As interesting as this vote will be, it's bittersweet in that if it passes and eventually the wars really are wound down, it signals the end of the empire. That likely means some harsh realities taking hold in this country regarding the effects of an inability to continue to export monetary inflation.

    Smaul, no offense but the things you ticked off in the vid, while some is no doubt hype with little backing, are by-and-large true and sourceable. For example, the original report of yuan/gold backed oil contracts comes from the Nikkei's own website on September 1: https://asia.nikkei.com/Markets/Commodities/China-sees-new-world-order-with-oil-benchmark-backed-by-gold Did you bother to dig for the source before labeling it fake news yourself? Seems not. The 'plot' of enslavement by global bankers and Illuminati is extremely well documented and has, in fact, been in effect for a long time already. The global dropping of the petrodollar is also extremely well documented. I even have a thread in this subforum started back in 2009 documenting the slow unwinding of the petrodollar. So while I agree that unsourced items from a, for example, Rickards video, is hardly proof of anything, the big picture of what's going on is very clear and it's just a matter of watching the pieces being put into place. Those of us that have been watching this for many years are at the point where we see the pieces very clearly.

    Definitely an interesting item to follow, now that it's not being buried quite as much by the MSM, especially if it means a whole load of Congresscritters resigning in shame or placed in handcuffs. I wonder, if that happens, at what point is the government considered dissolved and an Article 5 convention triggered? Shades of Civil War secession...

    Or to get you to agree to some change in legal terms of credit use. Perhaps both. They stick stuff into the Agreements, knowing people will be spooked by the news and won't read the Agreement they are binding themselves to. I'll go read the Agreement to see what fresh fuckery is in it. Definitely not agreeing to it though! eta: I didn't notice anything too egregious, though the terms do require that "You" again accept that the information contained in the report is "you", instead of the truth that the all capital letter name and SS# are not you at all and are instead various bank and government property.

    The layers of that onion are many, for sure. It's not the typical low-brow "joos be jooin'" ignorant junk that people spew. It involves Sabbatean jewry's split from traditional Judaism hundreds of years ago and those people aren't actually Jewish, rather they adopt the predominant religion of a region (among other methods) and infiltrate existing power structures through subversion such as intermarrying into powerful families, holding fake elections, etc. Eventually, they ended up as the ruling class for the various regions and religions of the world, all under false pretenses and carefully maintained public images, which in reality are also completely false.

    Only people that don't really understand geopolitics think this meeting is "shocking". Saudi "royals" and Israeli leadership are genetically same and long time allies behind the scenes. Both are jewish and this is why the Saudi regime is so hard-line. It keeps the Muslims that know the House of Saud is not Muslim from rebelling against them.

    Very possible. I'm not convinced there will be a war but yes, segregation of economic avenues is standard war prep. However, economic war prep like that is historically more about a long term (well after the war is concluded) goal than specifically about an impending war. Always remember that all wars are banker wars. Wars are a way to justify large-scale global economic changes that otherwise wouldn't be feasible.
