North Korea said on Friday that they will never resume nuclear talks with the United States unless President Donald Trump’s administration modifies what they consider to be unilateral demands for disarmament.

An unknown North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesperson reportedly blamed the U.S. for February’s nuclear summit failure in Hanoi on the Korean Central News Agency. He said that the collapse of the summit was intentional because of the “arbitrary and dishonest position taken by the United States.”

U.S. officials have stated that February’s meeting failed because North Korea had too many demands about sanctions relief and offered only partial disarmament steps.

“We hereby make it clear once again that the United States would not be able to move us even an inch with the device it is now weighing in its mind, and the further its mistrust and hostile acts towards the DPRK grow, the fiercer our reaction will be,” the spokesperson said according to KCNA.

Alex agrees that North Korea has incentive to strike a deal with Trump and benefit their country.

This latest statement follows a press conference on Tuesday held by North Korea’s ambassador Kim Song at the United Nations in New York. Song warned the U.S. of repercussions due to its seizure of a North Korean cargo ship and expressed that the government demands the vessel be returned.

“The United States should deliberate and think over the consequences its outrageous acts might have on the future developments,” Song said according to the New York Times. Song warned that the vessel’s seizure could hurt future negotiations.

The Wise Honest, North Korea’s ship, was intercepted on April 2, 2018 because it was violating international sanctions and American law, according to the Justice Department. The ship was allegedly being used to export Korean coal as well as heavy machinery.

The spokesperson’s announcement adds to recent comments from North Korea about the U.S. on KCNA.

Former Vice President Joe Biden called Kim Jong Un a tyrant during a campaign launch on March 18, resulting in KCNA firing back a statement saying that Biden is a “fool of low IQ.” They also said that he was an “imbecile bereft of elementary quality as a human being.”

KCNA suggested that Biden’s presidential candidacy was fruitless, saying “This is enough to make a cat laugh,” according to the report. This comment referred to Biden’s belief that he was “the most popular presidential candidate.”

“The U.S. would be well advised to wake up to reality and learn anew how to have dialogue and negotiation,” KCNA’s most recent statement from the spokesperson said.

Kim Jong Un has given the Trump administration until the end of the year to change their terms regarding a deal on disarmament, according to NBC News.

It’s only 9 am in New York but Friday’s session has already featured a frantic flurry of trade-war-related headlines that have – at least in the market’s view – overshadowed Theresa May’s tearful announcement that she will be stepping down as PM.

Beijing repudiated President Trump’s Thursday claim about a ‘speedy’ trade deal, saying there were no plans for a Trump-Xi meeting. US stock futures pared gains on that headline. Also, US firms ratcheted up the pressure on Huawei, with Microsoft joining the contingent of chip and tech companies that is planning to cut ties with Huawei over Washington’s blacklisting.

And now, the South China Morning Post is reporting that China’s largest chipmaker is withdrawing its ADRs from the New York Stock Exchange, and will subsequently trade only in Hong Kong. The company said ‘low trading volumes’ and the ‘cost of maintaining the listing’ motivated its decision.

China’s biggest maker of semiconductors is to withdraw from the New York Stock Exchange as the increasingly ferocious trade war with the US spills over into the technology sector.

Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp (SMIC) said on Friday evening it has notified NYSE of its intention to apply on June 3 to delist its so-called American depositary receipts from the bourse. In a filing to the Hong Kong stock exchange, where its shares are listed, SMIC cited low trading volumes of its ADRs and the costs of maintaining the listing and complying with reporting requirements and related laws.

The delisting is expected to happen after June 13, and trading of the chip maker’s US securities will shift to the over-the-counter market, the statement said.

The sudden move comes as Washington steps up efforts to cut off its technology from China, with trade negotiations between the world’s two largest economies still deadlocked.

Just a few days ago, Steve Bannon told the SCMP that he would like to see Chinese companies shut out from American capital markets. It appears Beijing is doing him one better.

Meanwhile, a growing number of sell-side strategists now see a protracted trade war as the ‘base-case’ scenario. The latest assessment from Rabobank concluded that it’s extremely unlikely that either side will offer an olive branch in the near future: “That ship has sailed.”

China is battening down the hatches for a “Long March” and doesn’t even want to talk to the US. In fact, Xi and Trump might not even meet at the end of June in Osaka, in which case there is no obvious off-ramp.

Hovering in the background is Steve Bannon’s ‘superhawkishness’. President Trump has already accomplished something incredible: He’s united a disparate group of business leaders and politicians from both parties behind his hard-line approach. This might give him the cover he needs to ignore the market, at least until things start getting really bad.

In the meantime, expect more Chinese companies will demonstrate their ‘independence’ from American markets.

Russia once again added to its growing gold reserves in April, buying another 15.55 tons of the yellow metal. According to a press release from the Central Bank of Russia, it now holds 2,183.46 tons of gold.

Russia has expanded its gold holdings by 71.53 tons through the first four months of 2019. Russian gold reserves increased 274.3 tons in 2018, marking the fourth consecutive year of plus-200 ton growth. Meanwhile, the Russians sold off nearly all of its US Treasury holdings. According to Bank of America analysts,  the amount of US dollars in Russian reserves fell from 46% to 22% in 2018.

In an appearance on RT, Peter Schiff said he thinks the Russians are preparing for an impending dollar crisis.

As Peter explained, the world has been on a dollar standard ever since the US led the world off the gold standard.

“That was fine when the dollar was backed by gold, but now the dollar is backed by nothing. So, if you’re backing your currency with a currency that’s backed by nothing, well, then your currency is backed by nothing.”

Peter said this wasn’t a problem when people perceived value in the dollar, but he thinks that’s going to change.

“I think the next recession when the Fed goes back to zero and when we launch QE4, I think the dollar’s role as a reserve currency is going to be questioned, and central banks need an alternative. And the only viable alternative to back up their own currency is real money, which is gold.”

Peter also talked about the fact that the US uses the dollar as a weapon.

“Other countries don’t like this, and to the extent that they can move away from the dollar, well then they kill two birds with one stone. And one way of doing that is to increase their gold reserves now while gold is still cheap. Because when the dollar really starts to tank, the price of gold is going to soar. Russia, right now, obviously wants to buy as much gold as it can while the price is still relatively cheap. That allows it to build up a bigger hoard of gold to replace the diminished value that the dollar is going to play as a reserve currency.”

China has also been buying gold. Peter said this is one way for the Chinese to gain leverage in the trade war. They can strengthen the yuan by selling dollarsand buying gold.

“That would help increase the value of the yuan and that would help increase the purchasing power of their own citizens while really dealing a fatal blow to the dollar and the US economy at the same time.”

The RT anchor asked if it was really possible for other countries to actually ditch the US dollar. Peter said it’s not only possible, it’s inevitable.

“Ultimately, the US won’t have any leverage at all … This [the dollar as the reserve currency] was an exorbitant privilege that the US has enjoyed for decades, but it has abused that privilege dramatically, even more so recently with the sanctions. So, I think that privilege is going to be lost and with it will go the artificially high standard of living that came along with it in the United States.”

The war of words between the US and Iran intensified earlier in the month after the Pentagon deployed an aircraft carrier strike group and a bomber task force near Iran in response to what Washington called a potential threat from Tehran.

Speaking before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Special Representative for Syria Engagement and Special Envoy to the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS James Jeffrey called on Russia to influence Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad into ordering the withdrawal of Iranian forces from the country.

“We believe that Russia can play an important role in resolving this conflict just as it played an important role in making it worse and that was the reason that Secretary [Mike] Pompeo went to Sochi and President [Vladimir] Putin met with him because President Putin also… would like to find a solution to this conflict because it is a dangerous one for Russia”, Jeffrey said.

The senior official proceeded by saying that Russia and the US had common interests in Syria.

Jeffrey claimed that there are more than 10,000 soldiers from third countries in Syria that are controlled by Iran, including Hezbollah militants. The official continued by claiming that in addition to direct military support, Iran provides drones, radar systems, and other equipment.

“What really concerns us more is Iranian power projection systems — long-range missile, drones, radar systems, air defense capabilities that you do not need to fight an internal civil war”, Jeffrey told the committee.

After a major oil pipeline in Saudi Arabia was struck by armed drones, war with Iran now seems possible.

Tehran has been accused of using Syria as a playground for a possible future military attack against neighboring Israel. Tehran has repeatedly denied those claims, stressing that it solely provides military advisors’ assistance to Syria at Damascus’ request to help the country in its fight against terrorism.

The escalation of tensions between the US and Iran reached new level earlier this month, when the US imposed more anti-Iranian sanctions and sent an aircraft carrier strike group, a squadron of B-52 bombers and Patriot interceptors to the Middle East to grapple with what Washington describes as a threat emanating from Iran.

Most recently, US President Donald Trump warned Iran in a Tweet that it would be “official end of Iran” if Tehran “wants to fight”. Responding to the threats, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif compared Trump with bellicose rulers of the past, such as Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great, saying that Iranians “have stood tall for millennia while aggressors all gone.”

Last November, Tehran accused US and Israeli hackers of creating a new version of the Stuxnet virus in an attempt to damage Iran’s communication infrastructure, adding that the attack had been thwarted.

On Thursday, Iranian Communications Minister Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi told the official IRNA news agency that a new program would prevent further hacker attacks from the malware that targeted the defense facilities of the country.

“Iran’s University scientists have developed a firewall for industrial automation systems to neutralize industrial sabotage such as that caused by Stuxnet in power networks, and it was successfully tested,” he said.

Alex discusses how important it is to elect representatives that stand against globalism.

According to Tehran, back in June 2009 the bug targeted nuclear centrifuges at Iran’s Natanz Uranium Enrichment Facility, causing serious damage to some of them, which allegedly led to a 30 percent drop in their operational capacity.

Various reports suggested that the Stuxnet virus had been developed by US and Israeli intelligence services to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program. No country, however, has taken responsibility, neither for creating the virus nor for carrying out the attack.

The Chinese telecom titan has been repeatedly accused by the US and its allies of stealing commercial data, as well as cooperating with the Chinese government in regards to allegedly handing over personal data – something that Huawei stated is wrong and has never been requested of them.

China has called out the US government’s decision to put telecom giant Huawei on a blacklist, voicing an intention to take the necessary protective measures, with the comments coming amid a new twist in the trade war between the world’s two biggest economies.

“China has emphasized many times that the concept of national security should not be abused, and that it should not be used as a tool for trade protectionism”, Gao Feng, spokesman at the Chinese Commerce Ministry, told reporters, adding that the Southeast Asian country “will take all the necessary measures to resolutely safeguard” Chinese firms’ “legitimate rights.”

The US Department of Commerce has placed Chinese tech maker Huawei, along with 70 affiliates, on a trade blacklist, with the move banning the Chinese firms from acquiring technology or components from American firms without the US government’s consent.

There was also a separate executive order signed by Trump that bans US firms from using telecom equipment made by companies “deemed to pose a national security risk.”

Steven Mosher joins Alex Jones to expose the tactics of communist China to infiltrate our technology infrastructure and deceive the masses in the west.

The US Commerce Department noted Wednesday that it has reasons to believe that “Huawei is engaged in activities” that go against American national security, with US intelligence having previously accused the company of installing “backdoor” access in its devices upon the Chinese government’s directives – a feature that would make it possible for them to spy on users, thereby putting their personal data in jeopardy. However, Beijing and Huawei have both denied that such a directive exists.

Earlier in the day, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross asserted that President Trump “is acting once again to protect US national security.”

“This Executive Order addresses the threat posed by foreign adversaries to the nation’s information and communications technology and services supply chain”, Ross said adding:

“Under President Trump’s leadership, Americans will be able to trust that our data and infrastructure are secure.”

Huawei struck back, saying that it was “ready and willing to engage with the US government and come up with effective measures to ensure product security.”

The firm’s vice president for Western Europe noted on Tuesday that Huawei is a private company that is not controlled by the Chinese government and would refuse to hand over information to Beijing, adding that no request to this end has ever been made. Chairman of Huawei’s Board of Directors Liang Hua also stated that the company intends to sign so-called “no-spy” agreements with other governments, including that of the UK.

According to UK-based Huawei representative Nigel Jefferies, putting constraints on Huawei’s supply chain would not only directly affect the company itself and its ambitions to roll out, for instance, top-notch 5G technologies, but would also “limit the US to inferior yet more expensive alternatives, leaving the US lagging behind in 5G deployment and eventually harming the interests of US companies and consumers.”

China has meanwhile repeatedly voiced its indignation over Canada’s arrest of Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou in December. Meng faces extradition to the United States on charges that she conspired to steal commercial information for a company operating in Iran, in breach of the US sanctions. Huawei has ascertained, however, that Meng has done nothing illegal.

The developments come against the backdrop of a few new twists in the Washington-Beijing trade spat, with the sides having recently engaged in a new round of tariffs on imported goods.

In probably the most significant sign so far that we could be headed for yet another major war in the Middle East, multiple European allies of the United States are rapidly pulling their forces from Iraq and the Persian Gulf region on fears they could get unwillingly sucked into confrontation with Iran.

Tehran isn’t backing down the US escalation ladder either, given moments ago Iran’s Revolutionary Guard commander said via the Reuters newswire:

“We are on the cusp of a full-scale confrontation with the enemy.”

Iran’s Minister of Defense Amir Hatami also vowed Wednesday, “We will defeat the American-Zionist front,” according to the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

This follows on the heels of the US State Department’s dramatic ordering of an evacuation of all non-essential diplomatic personnel and their families from the American embassy in Baghdad, citing an “imminent” threat.

As of Wednesday morning the countries of Spain, Germany, and the Netherlands have suspended military support operations in Iraq, citing rising US-Iran tensions. And further a top Iraqi diplomat told reporters at a press conference in Moscow that “Iraq is a sovereign nation. We will not let [the US] to use our territory” for any military operations against Iran.

Senator Josh Hawley confronted Pentagon officials about the obvious treason being committed by Google who has chosen instead to support the communist Chinese government.

Previously on Tuesday Spain was the first to announce that it ordered its military frigate, the Méndez Núñez, which has 215 sailors on board, out of a USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group currently en route to the Persian Gulf, citing “it will not enter into any other type of mission” in the Persian Gulf region, according to the Spanish Minister of Defense.

Minister of Defense Margarita Robles ordered the “temporary measure of withdrawal of the frigate Méndez Núñez (F-104) from the combat group of the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln while it is in the Middle East,” sources from her office told the digital edition of El País.

As of early Wednesday Germany also announced it is temporarily suspending its operations in Iraq, which includes training local soldiers and security personnel as part of US-led coalition efforts.

“The German army has suspended the training,” defense ministry spokesman Jens Flosdorff announced, citing the “generally heightened alert, awareness” for soldiers in the region. However, echoing Britain’s top commander in the coalition, Flosdorff acknowledged there was “no concrete threat” at the moment. “Germany has no indications of its own of attacks supported by Iran,” Reuters quoted him as saying.

In total Germany has about 160 soldiers deployed in Iraq, embedded as part of Operation Inherent Resolve in support of the US mission; but the peeling away of such an influential EU country could cause other international allies to follow.

The Netherlands also quickly followed suit, per Reuters early Wednesday: “The Dutch government has suspended a mission in Iraq that provides assistance to local authorities due to a security threat, Dutch news agency ANP reported on Wednesday.”

Like Germany’s military, Dutch troops assist in training Iraqi forces, especially in Erbil, northern Iraq, along with other international coalition partners.

Washington and Tehran have recently exchanged threats of direct conflict while jostling to assert control over the vital Strait of Hormuz narrow oil shipping passage, which has further left global oil markets on edge and rattled.

As tensions in the region started to surge, British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said his nation was worried about the risk of accidental conflict “with an escalation that is unintended really on either side.” Then on Tuesday, Spain temporarily pulled one of its frigates from the U.S.-led combat fleet heading toward the Strait of Hormuz. That was followed by the unusual public challenge to the Trump administration by the general.AP

The military build-up is claimed to be in response to intelligence the White House says confirms that US troops face imminent threat of attack by Iran and its regional proxy forces in places like Iraq, Syria, and the gulf.

But with a number of European allies increasingly vocal in questioning Bolton and the White House’s latest intelligence on which the current saber rattling is based, there’s a high likelihood the standoff could result in a number of European allies permanently ditching US support operations in the Middle East altogether.

Monday was another rough day on Wall Street as the ongoing trade war weighed on stocks. The Dow dropped 617 points and closed below Friday’s low. The NASDAQ was down 3.4% on the day. The Russell 2000 was also off by more than 3%.

In his podcast Monday evening, Peter Schiff said he thinks the bear market rally is over.

“Long live the bear market. This bear market rally is dead. We are going a lot lower.”

China announced it will impose higher tariffs on most US imports on a revised $60 billion target list. On Tuesday, a little optimism returned after Pres. Trump said he thought trade negotiations would prove successful. But Peter doesn’t think so. He said he still doesn’t think there will be a deal – and even if there is, it won’t be a significant “win” for the US.

“I’ve been saying for a long time that even if we got a deal, it was going to be a ‘buy the rumor sell the fact.’ But I also said it was becoming obvious that Trump had so overpromised about a great deal that it was almost impossible to have a deal without disappointing the markets. So, I think Trump made a calculated decision that no deal is better than a deal that disappoints, especially since he had already goosed the market up to new highs so even if we sold off, Trump could say, ‘Well, this is some short-term pain. It’s necessary for the long-term gain.’ And it may be the catalyst that causes the Fed to cut interest rates and launch QE, which is what Trump wants.”

Peter talked about that scenario in a podcast last week.

Yesterday, Peter said that if the market really understood the gravity of the situation, it wouldn’t be down 600 points, it would be down 6,000 points.

Gold got a little boost from the trade war, briefly trading above the $1,300 per ounce mark, but never really gained any traction above that important technical level.

“Gold would be up hundreds of dollars an ounce if people really perceived reality, or understood what this means.”

When the Chinese announced retaliation for the higher tariffs the US levied on Friday, Trump basically said, “Bring it on.” Trump even tweeted out that the strong GDP number in the first quarter was due to the tariffs.

Alex Jones breaks down how a one-sided deal made 50 years ago puts China in the driver’s seat.

Peter said the tariffs actually did have some bearing on the GDP number — primarily the timing of some imports and the big inventory build. But he said the truth is, there were a number of one-off factors that masked a weakening economy.

“By the second quarter, those factors will not be there and the weakening economy will be laid bare for everybody to see and it is going to be a lot weaker because America is not going to win this trade war. We are going to lose this war and we are going to lose it badly and the winner is going to be China.”

Peter said the reason the Chinese are going to win is because they have been losing the trade game with the US for a long time.

“We have been riding on a Chinese gravy-train. We have been relying on China for capital and we have been relying on China for consumer goods. The supply us with the savings we don’t have and they allow us to import the products we consume.”

Peter discussed some of the retaliatory measures that China is threatening to take and the impacts they might have. He also explained how the Chinese have financed America’s big government and all the debt it has run up.

“We used to save. We used to make capital investments. We don’t do that anymore. We just borrow and spend. And where do we get the money that we’re borrowing? From the Chinese and other nations that are doing the savings for us. So, they’re saving for us. They’re producing for us. And we’re living off their productivity and their under-consumption. And that party – that global gravy train is about to come to an end.”

Trump says America just needs to start making things itself. That’s a fine idea, but as Peter said, it’s easier said than done. Companies would have to build factories, buy machines and create completely new supply chains. That takes time and requires capital – capital that doesn’t exist in the US because the Fed has completely discouraged savings.

“Anybody can consume. The hard part is to produce.”

You’ll definitely want to check out Peter’s whole discussion.

The situation in the region escalated last week after acting US Defence Secretary Patrick Shanahan ordered the deployment of the USS Arlington, a San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock, and additional MIM-104 Patriot missile defense systems to the US Central Command (CENTCOM) region.

Pakistani authorities said on Sunday that they had notified the United States that Pakistan was against any attack on Iran, as such an act would be “destructive for the regional peace.”

A senior official in the Pakistani Foreign Ministry told The Nation outlet that “the US claims Iran is intensifying tension.”

At the same time, according to another official, Pakistan has contacted Iran as well, urging it to restraint to ensure peace.

The exchange of missiles between the IDF and Iranian forces represented a major escalation of a conflict that has been simmering at a low level for months.

Tensions between Iran and the US reached a new level after Washington enlisted the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization earlier this year, with Iran doing the same to the US Central Command.

Later on, US National Security Adviser John Bolton announced that the US was deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force near Iran in a move to send “a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on US interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force.”

Responding to the claims, Tehran said that it posed no threat to the US, adding that Washington’s allegations were based on “fake intelligence”. According to Iran’s Supreme National Security Council spokesman Keivan Khosravi, Bolton’s statement was “a clumsy use of an out-of-date event for psychological warfare.”

Big Tech has become so deeply involved in everyday life that when they censor Christians, conservatives, and patriots they are actually attacking American’s God-given rights enshrined in the constitution.
