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

  Drums Along the Potomac 
The amateur psychologist in me suspects that the more the USA heaps Russia with censorious opprobrium and punishments, the closer this floundering polity actually is to completely losing its shit. Friday morning’s front-page headline in The New York Times appears to have been written by Pee Wee Herman: I can just hear Vlad Putin blowing a raspberry out of the Kremlin: “Nyah, nyah, nyah… I know you are, but what am I…?” We’re also informed today by that august journal that U.S. Accuses Russia in

Gold Bullion Hits Worst 1-Week Dollar Price Drop of 2018, Turkey-US Tensions Worsen in Syria
GOLD PRICES in the global wholesale center of London headed for the steepest 1-week drop of 2018 so far on Friday, holding a 1.7% loss against a stronger US Dollar as major government bond prices edged higher again from this month's sharp sell-off, nudging interest rates down.

Silver as a Strategic Metal and Why Prices Will Soar 
The arguments in favor of silver as an investment asset are growing rapidly. In the opinion of the Jackass, silver is the most under-valued hard asset in existence, with the highest potential for price appreciation on the globe. To begin with, central banks own no silver, but do own huge tracts of gold. Industry has huge demand for silver, but a trifling amount for gold demand. The investment demand is another key factor in favor of silver, but also for gold. Ever since the tech telecom bust in

  One-year score card for Trump
We understand our politicians to be human, with much that that implies. In a democracy, politics is a competitive business, which means that generally well-balanced individuals tend to succeed, while those who are obviously unbalanced do not. And as for political power corrupting individuals, that is normally limited by the obligation to periodically seek an electoral mandate. That, at least is the theory, but in late-2016, the election of President-elect Donald Trump caused us all to question t

We Come In Peace -
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12 Stocks drifted higher today, setting new records.  Huzzah! Gold and silver drifted largely sideways. It was risk on, or at least timidly so, ahead of the start of the new earnings season which I believe begins this coming Friday. The Trump Administration has a plan to give marching orders to US dipl

Forecast 2018 — What Could Go Wrong 
Markets If you take your cues from Consensus Trance Central — the cable news networks, The New York Times, WashPost, and HuffPo — Trump is all that ails this foundering empire. Well, Trump and Russia, since the Golden Golem of Greatness is in league with Vladimir Putin to loot the world, or something like that. Since I believe that the financial system is at the heart of today’s meta-question (What Could Go Wrong?), it would be perhaps more to the point to ask: what has held this matrix of racke

What Peak Gold, Interest Rates And Current Geopolitical Tensions Mean For Gold in 2018

2017, The Year of the Truth Bomb! (Part 1)
Here we are at the end of 2017 with more “truth bombs” released than I could have imagined!  In fact, I believe we probably received more “truth” in just one year than collectively in all of human history.  This is a sad statement because it also means we have lived behind more lies than at any time prior.  Also surprising is none individually have cracked the dam called “confidence”.  But do not be fooled as it looks as if the entire dam is moving, particularly in the last few weeks!
