The Never-Ending Wars of the United States of America
A Monday Morning Musing from Mickey the Mercenary Geologist"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefi

The Big Money Grab Is “On” As Middle America Collapses - Dave Kranzler
The stock market rejoices the House passage of the tax “reform” Bill as the Dow shot up 187 points and the S&P 500 spiked up 21. The Nasdaq soared 1.3%, retracing its 3-day decline in one day. The tax bill is nothing more than a massive redirect of money flow from the Treasury Department to Corporate America and billionaires. The middle class will not receive any tax relief from the Bill but it will shoulder the burden of the several trillion dollars extra in Treasury debt that will be

The Surveillance State: An Inexorable March Toward Totalitarianism
Gizmodo released an article entitled “US Homeland Security Wants Facial Recognition to Identify People in Moving Cars,” on 11/2/17 by Matt Novak.The Surveillance State has slowed down its rate of growth since the President took office, however, it has not halted that growth. Instead, it lies festering below the veneer of daily events, inexorably growing its tentacles and extending their reach. Akin to an infestation of weeds, the roots are deep within the fabric of our communications networks: t

Don’t Expect Palladium Prices to Plunge
Over the past month, there has been a deluge of news heralding a new era of palladium, which has soared above the $1000 per ounce mark for the first time in the past 16 years. Moreover, palladium also overtook platinum and is still being traded at a premium to it. The overwhelming majority (78 percent) of the world’s palladium is used in gasoline-fueled cars’ catalytic converters, with minor volumes going into electronic resistor production and dental construction. A plethora of factors has been

We’re transitioning now (how about you?)
It finally happened, we have a new Federal Reserve Chairman who will take the place of the academician. Jerome Hayden “Jay” Powell will replace Janet Yellen as Federal Reserve Chairman at the end of Yellens term and hopefully we will no longer see financial experiments by those that have never traded. This change up may actually create real movements without the central banker hindrances within the debt arenas. What will that do to the rest of the markets and to ones investments if they are not

Digging Up An Old Story.. Part II
It is the closing of October and the Hollow’s Eve celebrations are in their waning hours. It is in this era of time in which we continue the diggings up of the thesis of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and if the story of the blood sucking vampire was that of a banker. Imo, Bram would have truly been a member of our community, a group that has complete and full trust in Silver and Gold and not the power of print. I finally got my purchase of “Famous Impostors” written by Bram Stoker back in 1910. The book

Taxing 113 out of 365 days
This past Sunday was the 31st anniversary of “The reform act of 1986” in which our 2 party system came together to help reduce the tax burdens piled on by previous governance.  It was the second tax relief and was most helpful in releasing more of the burden across the entire nation and at all levels of income. What it did in the layman’s term was reduce the number of days of paying tax. We are now at 113 days out of 365, before we enter the tax freedom days. This is the heaviest yoke on our nat

Gold Price Slips as Bond Yields Rise But UK Rate Hike 'Not Certain' Despite 5-Yr Inflation High
GOLD PRICES gave back yesterday's bounce against a rising Dollar in London on Tuesday as world stock markets ignored Wall Street's drop, bond yields rose, and a UK policy-maker tried to cool expectations for a hike in Pound Sterling interest rates. America's S&P500 index last night capped a 5-day streak of new all-time record highs by falling 0.4%, led lower by the worst day for multinational General Electric (NYSE:GE) since August 2011 on a

Crypto Currency Calm Before The Storm: “Governments Are Studying It To Find The Means To Take Control Of It… And You”
The United States (and the world) has been using the worthless fiat federal reserve note that is not backed by any true tangible asset.  The only backing is not even the “full faith and credit of the United States government,” because the government is too far in debt to have any credit.  Faith disappeared a long time ago: our faith in elected officials as public servants.  Instead, they serve themselves upon the labors of the public, and the public services them, in every sense of the word.

The Added Liquidity Caused By 2 Votes
We have been involved in one heck of a transition these past 5 quarters. Not only has the politically gamed background been forced up front and center for both party’s embarrassment, the intelligence agencies and foreign agreements (entanglements such as those of NATO, NAFTA, CAFTA et al.) are now totally open to full exposure speculation.  And boy the protestations coming from those that are finally being looked at are loud and obnoxious aren’t they? So much commotion is going on that it is rea

The Central Planners Lullaby
We seem to be in a lull in market moving news, or is it more the gyrations within the market that have been put to sleep?  The question offers an implication that the exchanges and human emotions “used” to be connected, which in the past, these major events would have caused market fluctuations in price. It is most famously known as market volatility. We have mentioned previously how the damages to an entire string of islands and flooded land masses seem to mean nothing to the markets, but are t

This was treated with some interesting detail. However, Ledbetter made almost no mention of the fact that the U.S. returned to gold at the beginning of 1934 at $35/oz., and

Oil for gold – the real story
Following an article in the Nikkei Asia Review, which reported China will shortly introduce an oil futures contract priced in yuan, there has been some confusion about what it means. The article pointed out that in combination with existing gold futures priced in yuan, an oil exporter to China contracting to accept yuan could use these two futures contracts to take delivery of physical gold in payment for oil.I was quoted in that article as follows:"It is a mechanism which is likely to appeal to

Common commodity misconceptions 
Commodities are the most basic economic goods, providing essential inputs into progressively more complex goods at advanced stages of production. Yet the economic mainstream generally fails to understand commodities, treating them as distinct from the processes whereby they are created and the processes they subsequently enable, when in fact they are an integral part of a dynamic, complex, adaptive economic system. A correct understanding of commodities is essential if we are to understand what

Print till it Dies
The US Dollar has had a wonderful run in its life time. Not too many fiat currencies have had the ability to sustain its usage for as long as this mighty experiment has and all who have reported on this instrument of trade are pretty much pointing to the same outcome that it can’t last much longer. Today, the US Dollar trade sits at 93.55 down 8.6 points in the early morning on this Columbus Day. Not too long ago the dollar broke thru a multiyear downside target of 91.88 which originally happene

Digging Up An Old Story
Last night instead of watching the No Fans Left political program, I decided to watch a 1931 movie starring Bela Lugosi. Being in the Halloween Season and all, I watched the original “Dracula” where the main character was charismatic, kind, considerate, wealthy, and a little off. This movie was epic and the digitally remastered film really showed the viewers a good time. Bela Lugosi was claimed to have stayed in character for 6 months past the making of the movie and I found out later that he wa
