“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.” Augustine of Hippo As you most probably have heard the French elections settled on the 'base case' candidates, Le Pen and Marchon. None of the old line, established parties made the cut. Le Pen is the hard nationalist right and anti-EU. Macron appears to be a polit

  If You Understand History and Economics, You Understand Gold 
by Egon von Greyerz How can ordinary people ever understand the importance of gold when they are continuously fed with false and distorted facts. The latest publication to publish false and ignorant propaganda on gold is the British weekly magazine the Economist. The article begins with a graph of gold starting in September 2011. Anyone who knows anything about gold recognises that this is the time when gold reached a peak of $1,930. Between 1999 and 2011 gold had gone from $250 to $1,930 which

Russians know that the dollar is both America's weapon and vulnerability
From TASS, Moscow Friday, April 21, 2017 YALTA, Crimea, Russia -- The only way to stop the United States' aggression is to get rid of dollar addiction, a Kremlin advisor said on Friday. "The more aggressive the Americans are the sooner they will see the final collapse of the dollar as the only way for the victims of American aggression to stop this aggression is to get rid of the dollar. As soon as we and China are through with the dollar, it will be the end of the United States' military might,

Trump is Like the Weather: Wait a Day and His Foreign Policy Position Will Change
Just days after Trump backed away from a trade war with China, the Trump administration launched a National-Security Probe on Steel Imports. For good measure, Trump blasted Canada over its dairy product policy. The Trump administration has opened a wide-ranging probe into whether to curb steel imports in the name of national security, ramping up its campaign to give a more economic nationalist tinge to American trade policy. “Steel is critical to both our economy and our military,” President Do

Tension Builds: Vladimir Putin Mobilizes Troops and Equipment To North Korean Border: “Fears U.S. Is Preparing To Attack”
We can all pretend like there is nothing going on around the Korean Peninsula and hope that cooler heads will prevail, but if history is any guide, when the militaries of multiple nations begin to mass troops at borders, it takes only a single, often seemingly inconsequential, catalyst to plunge the situation into all-out war. That’s exactly what’s happening in North Korea today. Two weeks ago China deployed some 150,000 troops to the North Korean border and put their entire military on high ale

Pictured: Russia’s New North Pole Nuke Base: “Moscow Is Putting Down A Serious Military Marker… Seeks To Claim Oil and Gas Reserves”
The global chess game never seems to end, and with Russia’s latest military move the situation in the oil and gas laden Arctic region of the globe is likely to increase tensions even more. Russia has just unveiled its newest military base in the north pole, complete with 18-months of sustainable reserves for the 150 soldiers who’ll be manning it, as well as an in-house cinema, pool tables and ping pong. But it’s not designed for just fun and games. The base is reportedly capable of housing both,

Russia Claims it Could Completely Disable US Navy With Electronic Warfare Tech
There is an old saying in war. “No battle plan ever survives contact with the enemy.” As China, Russia, and the United States beat the war drums and boast about the capabilities of their armies, they should take that saying very seriously. These geopolitical juggernauts may think that they have an ace in the hole for their militaries, but there’s no telling who would win in a war until the shooting starts. In America’s case, our government puts a lot of faith in its expensive high-tech military.

America’s financial war strategy
AbstractAmerica’s renewed desire to escalate military tensions is a front for America’s continual financial war, this time directed at North Korea, Syria and possibly Iran. This is likely to be the opinion of China’s strategic advisors. We analyse the geopolitics and economics behind America’s war strategy from China’s perspective, concluding that it is entering its final phase. China’s exit plan appears to be to tie the pricing of energy and then other major commodities to gold, returning to th

The Truth is a Dangerous Thing – My Two Cents
This time in history might be like no other – or at a minimum is on a much bigger scale. There is more access to information, analysis, and expert opinions than ever. Obviously, everyone claims to be telling ‘the truth’. A few psychopathic individuals notwithstanding, nobody sets out in the business of providing information, then says ‘But we’re going to lie like a rug, 24/7, how about them apples?’. Everyone is

There are lies, damned lies and news, to paraphrase British Prime Minister Disraeli who said: “There are lies, damned lies and statistics. Today we are fed with lies ubiquitously in the form of news and most people who just follow conventional media are totally unaware of the truth. Because the truth is not spoken by many today: Politicians lie to mislead and indoctrinate the people. Governments put out false economic information to serve their purpose, like unemployment or

The Daily Market Report: Gold Buoyed by Weak Dollar and Stocks
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/04-18-17 Gold has rebounded from modest intraday losses to pressure the 5½-month high at 1295.46 that was established yesterday in overseas trading. A weaker dollar and weaker stocks are helping to push the yellow metal higher. Rising geopolitical tensions continue to contribute to safe-haven demand as well. Reports today suggest the U.S. military is considering shooting down North Korean missile tests. While that may display U.S. intercept capabilities, it just might further

GOLD PRICES held $10 per ounce below yesterday's spike to new 5-month highs as London's bullion market re-opened for business after the long Easter weekend on Tuesday, trading at $1285 amid fresh geopolitical headlines, cited by analysts as driving this month's 3% gain to date. Gold prices have been "closing in on trend lines drawn from the all-time high in 2011...[now] at $1290," said French investment bank Societe

The Richest Man In All Of Asia Is Aggressively Preparing For Collapse: “Direct Exposure To Gold As Super Wealthy Focus On Wealth Preservation”
The world is awash in crisis with wars looming, economies crashing and revolutions brewing. Doomsday bunkers sales are soaring and individuals from coast to coast are getting ready for whatever tomorrow may bring. Moreover, even governments like China and Russia are preparing, having gone so far as to create their own exchange mechanism to trade directly with gold in the event of a global currency crisis or financial meltdown. But it’s not just governments who have taken notice of the problems f

Buy the Dip?
The military frolics of spring have distracted the nation’s attention from the economic and financial dynamics that pose the ultimate mortal threat to business as usual. Note the distinction between economic and financial. The first represents real activity in this Land of the Deal: people doing and making. The second, finance, used to be a minor branch — only about five percent — of all the doing in the days of America’s putative bigliest greatitude. The task of finance then was limited and str

Last Days of The Gold Cartel
It’s early Saturday morning, so don’t be surprised if by the time you read this, the world has significantly changed.  As frankly, a war involving the U.S., North Korea, and potentially many others may well be imminent; so much so, that China “nearly started World War III” last night, by “accidentally” reporting North Korea had launched a nuclear missile. Yes, just five months after his inauguration, Donald Trump is on the verge of starting his second war with a nation posing no threat to Americ

  Krunch Time for Korean Krackpot Despot, Kim Jong-Un: Missile Crisis Countdown Has Begun
The following article by David Haggith was first published on The Great Recession Blog: The Korean missile crisis has never been hotter. Trump is turning the screws on everyone to force action. China, Japan, and South Korea join in threatening Kim Jong-un with imminent war, but North Korea’s crackpot despot isn’t backing down. Trump has dispatched war ships, including the USS Carl Vinson, to North Korea as North Korea continues to show signs that it is preparing to do another nuclear test on Sa

What Could Go Wrong?
“Things fall apart; the center cannot hold.” Yeats wrote. The funny thing is, we didn’t seem to miss the center all that much after it was gone. America is perfectly satisfied hunkering down at the margins these days. Especially the margins of thinking. One thing that used to occupy the center was public discussion, debate, and argumentation. Now and again, it featured a coherent exchange of ideas. These days, the main political factions are sunk in hysteria of one kind or another. Their primiti
