An oil E&P company has acquired rights at low cost in the prolific Permian Basin that it is now exploring, as well as branching out by acquiring rights in Kansas. The price of oil has been rising in recent weeks, with West Texas Intermediate Crude now fetching $57 per barrel. The Permian Basin, a prolific oil and gas producing area spanning West Texas and southeastern New Mexico that some people have called "America's Saudi Arabia," ha

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

Next-Generation Crazy: The Fed Plans For The Coming Recession - John Rubino
Insanity, like criminality, usually starts small and expands with time. In the Fed’s case, the process began in the 1990s with a series of (in retrospect) relatively minor problems running from Mexico’s currency crisis thorough Russia’s bond default, the Asian Contagion financial crisis, the Long Term Capital Management collapse and finally the Y2K computer bug. With the exception of Y2K – which turned out to be a total non-event – these mini-crises were threats primarily to the big banks

Two-Thirds Of The Top Primary Silver Miners Suffered Production Declines In 2017
It has been a rough year for many primary silver miners as two-thirds have suffered declines in production.  Also, many high ranking silver producing countries are also experiencing a pronounced reduction in their domestic silver mine supply.  According to the data put out by World Metal Statistics, Chile’s silver production is down 20% in the first eight months of the year, while Australia is down 19%, Mexico declined 2% and Peru lower by 1%.The Silver Institute will be releasing their 2017 Sil

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

When will free markets emerge?
If someone asked you to define “free market,” could you?Could you do it on the spot without recourse to dictionaries or other crutches? There’s an old tale about the origin of the term “laissez-faire” that gets to my point.  Here’s the write-up in Wikipedia: The term laissez faire likely originated in a meeting that took place around 1681 between powerful French Comptroller-General of Finances Jean-Baptiste Colbert and a group of French businessmen headed by M. Le Gendre. When the eager mer

  On the use of gold coins as money 
Why don’t humans use gold coins as Money ? The answer is quite simple : because they don’t want to, under present circumstances. The attachment of humans to gold is remarkable; I suspect there is something metaphysical about gold that attracts human beings. Perhaps gold is part of the natural order of things, part of the Rerum Natura, and the relationship of humans to gold is “built-in”into human nature, like sexual attraction.

  Anecdotes and Reminiscences How unbacked fiat money corrupts society 
A well-known story from yesteryear: when Venustiano Carranza was President of Mexico (1917-1920). Carranza issued a great quantity of worthless paper money, which caused much resentment on the part of the population. Someone (whose identity was never discovered) printed up some papers, and these were pasted one night on the walls of buildings in the heart of Mexico City; the papers had the following text: “The Mexican eagle is a very cruel animal: It eats only silver, and shits only paper.” Pres

Silver, Stock Markets and TANSTAAFL
SILVER: Silver has been the money of commerce for several thousand years.  In contrast, unbacked debt-based fiat currencies have been a devaluing money substitute for decades. According to the St. Louis Federal Reserve, total debt securities and official national debt have increased exponentially for decades.  Prices for the stock market, silver, gold, food and most other necessities increase similarly. National debt has risen at 8 – 9% per year since 1913.  Since then the value of the dollar h

Raw Materials
It is said that the most advantageous of all branches of trade is that which supplies manufactured commodities in exchange for raw materials. For these raw materials are the aliment and support of national labor. Hence the conclusion is drawn that the best law of customs is that which gives the greatest possible facility to the importation of raw materials, and which throws most obstacles in the way of importing finished goods. There is no fallacy in political economy more widely disseminated th

Vanadium: The Metal We Can?t Do Without And Don?t Produce
From swords to jet engines  One of the world’s least known metals is also of great importance, and likely to become more so as renewable energies catch up with and possibly eclipse fossil fuels. Yet vanadium’s primary use as a steel alloy is set to keep prices buoyant and North American explorers racing to find a domestic source of the metal that was once used to make swords so strong and sharp the mere sight of them struck fear into the hearts of their enemies. A sword of Damascus steel – d

Mexico's Past, the World's Future Currency Devaluations
It seems the world is doomed to repeat the same mistakes, from wars to large economic shocks that could have been avoided. All this, without a doubt, is the responsibility of leaders, who are often blinded by today's apparent prosperity, or by the desire to postpone the inevitable, leading entire nations to what will eventually end in tragedy. The influential forces that these leaders possess,

Silver coin proposal discussed on Mexican TV by Salinas Price
Hugo Salinas Price, president of the Mexican Civic Association for Silver, was interviewed on television in Mexico on Saturday about his proposal for Mexico's central bank to issue an undenominated silver coin whose price in pesos would be guaranteed by the bank not to fall. Such a coin, Salinas Price explained, would provide a practical savings vehicle for ordinary Mexicans. It also would monetize a natural resource in which Mexico surpasses the world and thereby strengthen the nation's sovere

Lithium Supercycle
The truth, in regards to the world’s mineral resources, is that we in the western developed countries are usually not in control of supply. “The spectre of resource insecurity has come back with a vengeance. The world is undergoing a period of intensified resource stress, driven in part by the scale and speed of demand growth from emerging economies and a decade of tight commodity markets. Poorly designed and short-sighted policies are also making things worse, not better. Whether or not resou

Turning Point Nations On The Stage
Many are the turning points with individual nations, once firmly in the Western alliance camp, but no longer. They are flipping eastward or in the case of China cutting the major cords. The Shanghai developments are by far the most important in the financial setting. The Petro-Dollar is seeing its last months after a 43-year reign as defacto standard. Its retirement will begin in the East, then spread to the decaying loyal Western nations. The entire geopolitical chessboard is becoming more alig

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

  One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter
One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter, is, pretty much, a gold-bashing exercise. I think it is propaganda: that is to say, not a forthright expression of an individual’s independent and informed view, but an intentional effort to mold public opinion to serve certain agendas. The tone and method is very much like The Power of Gold: the History of an Obsession, by Peter Bernstein, seventeen years earlier — so similar, indeed, that it sometimes seems that it could have come from the same

Russia Gold Rush Sees Record Reserves For Putin Era
Vladimir Putin is doing his part to keep the upswing in gold alive.

You’re Likely A Lot Less Prepared For Crisis Than You Realize
This article was originally published by Chris Martenson at PeakProsperity.com It seems as if Mother Nature is waking up. Either she’s trying to send humans an important warning, or perhaps she’s just out to kill us all. Massive storms across the globe, earthquakes, and collapsing ecosystems all combine to remind us that we are indeed intimately connected to our planet’s natural systems. And that our well-being rests on staying on Mother Nature’s good side. Well, Mother Nature has seemed pretty
