83 Tons Of Fake Gold Bars: Gold Market Rocked By Massive China Counterfeiting Scandal
Over the years, we have periodicallyreported of the occasional gold bar discovered as counterfeit in Manhattan’s Diamond District which instead of containing the yellow precious metal would be filled with gold-plated tungsten or in some cases copper.
The news would spark a brief wave of outrage, prompting physical gold holders to run ultrasound spot checks of their inventory, at which point interest would wane and why not: buyer, after all, beware in gold as in every other market, and if someone is spending thousands to buy fake gold, well that’s Darwinism in action.
Yet one market which seemed stubbornly immune to any counterfeiting was that of physical gold in China, which was odd considering that over the past decade China had emerged as the world’s biggest counterfeiter of various, mostly industrial metals used to secure bank loans, better known as “ghost collateral“, and which adding insult to injury, would frequently be rehypothecated meaning often several banks would have claims to the same (fake) asset.
All that is about to change with the discovery of what may be one of the biggest gold counterfeiting scandal in recent history. And yes, not only does it involve China, but it emerges from a city that has become synonymous for all that is scandalous about China: Wuhan itself.
Abdul Bari, 53, convicted of 1st-degree murder in Fredericton, used charter argument in faint hope application
A New Brunswick man who beat his estranged wife to death in 2003 and hopes to be granted parole 10 years early has lost his bid to have his so-called faint hope application proceed under an older, lower standard of review based on a charter rights argument.
Abdul Bari, 53, was found guilty in 2004 of first-degree murder in the death of Shaila Akther Bari, 26, in Fredericton, and was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for at least 25 years.
(A source tells VladTepesBlog that the convicted murderer had asked to have sharia brought into the defence as his wife dishonoured him and the idea was rejected)

6. Yep! Its legit. I got a short blurry clip via one of those SM apps with no source. But here is the whole interview
The Daily Mail published an article on the interview as well.
7. There was a giant purge of non-leftists across multiple social media platforms today. From Reddit to Youtube etc. FOX News did a segment linked here. Lots of people got cancelled. Including Stephan Molyneaux but certainly not limited to him.
The banned channels include American Renaissance, Spencer’s National Policy Institute and that of Stefan Molyneux. The channels repeatedly violated YouTube’s policies by alleging that members of protected groups were inferior. These come alongside other violations that led to YouTube taking action.
“We have strict policies prohibiting hate speech on YouTube, and terminate any channel that repeatedly or egregiously violates those policies,” a YouTube spokesperson told Fox News via email. “After updating our guidelines to better address supremacist content, we saw a 5x spike in video removals and have terminated over 25,000 channels for violating our hate speech policies.”
Yeah its hard to defend the David Dukes of the world. But where does one draw that line? A lot of Reddit rooms, topics, I don’t really know how Reddit works. But a LOT of them got cancelled.
