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 Fed’s Passive Aggressive Play
Singing the song of rising rates Last week, we took a break from the theme of the consumption of capital, for our annual Outlook 2018 report. We are going to leave the topic for one more week, while we address a market move which is on everyone’s mind. Are interest rates now in a rising cycle? The Fed has been singing the song of rising rates since Yellen hinted at it in September 2014. The Fed’s first hike was December 2015. Here is a graph showing the Fed Funds Rate, which the Fed controls, wi

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

Reflections On "Pushing the Wrong Button" and US Drone Policy
A “ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii” notification was caused by an employee who "pushed the wrong button."

  Abracadabra 
And so, as they say in the horror movies, it begins…! The unwinding of the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet. Such an esoteric concept! Is there one in ten thousand of the millions of people who sit at desks all day long from sea to shining sea who have a clue how this works? Or what its relationship is to the real world? I confess, my understanding of it is incomplete and schematic at best — in the way that my understanding of a Las Vegas magic act might be. All the flash and dazzle conceals the

"Great Rotation" Ahead; Will it Be Inflationary or Deflationary
By Gary Tanashian[edit] This article ultimately leans toward the view that the reasons for a rising curve will be inflationary. But I woke up in the middle of the night and my thoughts drifted to the components of the article (yeah, that’s pretty sad, I know), and with further consideration I am leaning toward neutral or even a bit into the deflationary camp. The reasons will be the stuff of another article.Think back to the blaring headlines about the Great Promotion Rotation in the financial m

Kalashnikov Unveils New Anti-Drone Weapon
While most western countries are reverting back to medieval technology to combat the use of drones, legendary Russian arms manufacturer Kalashnikov, makers of the AK series, has developed an advanced anti-drone gun. Drones are now becoming more widely available, therefore, anti-drone technology is becoming a major field in the defense industry. Of course, Kalashnikov is leading the pack in anti-drone warfare. Built on the MP-514K rifle system, the fully modular device comes equipped with interch

A Robot Army Just Made The Biggest Gold Discovery Of The Century
This report from OilPrice.com is a paid advertorial Prospectors have mined 20 million ounces of gold from the Yukon’s famous Klondike since the Gold Rush. But they haven’t been able to find the original source—the multi-billion-dollar bedrock. Until now. A famous geologist armed with the latest in drone tech and robo-drills is certain he’s just found it. This is the Mother Lode of Klondike gold that countless prospectors have been trying to get at for over a century. It makes the 20 million oun

Debt, Dollars, DOW, War, Silver, and Shirts
Yes, they are connected. Dollars are created as debt. More dollars in circulation = more debt. More debt means consumption is “pulled forward” from the future so consumption can occur now. This usually ends badly. Commercial banks and central banks have created trillions of new dollars. Each new dollar devalues every other dollar currently in circulation, in savings, and in pension accounts. Prices rise! Wars are costly, kill people and produce little. Governments like wars because t

Watch: Startling Drone Footage Shows What Mosul Looks Like After 8 Months Of Fighting
Despite being outnumbered 15-1, ISIS forces swiftly captured the Iraqi city of Mosul in 2014, before declaring their monstrous caliphate. It was the victory that put them on the map, and it left hundreds of thousands of refugees in its wake. But three years later, Iraqi forces have nearly finished retaking the city, and are in the process of mopping up the few remaining ISIS fighters who are clinging to several acres of territory along the Tigris river. It’s taken 8 months of near constant fight

Facebook’s Solar Powered Drone has Successful Test Flight: Potential Internet Access to Billions
Four billion people on the earth have no internet access. That will change if Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s solar powered drone plan works. A previous trial of his drone ended with a crash landing, but a May 2017 Test of the Aquila Drone was a huge success. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s long-term plan for the drone, called Aquila, is to have it and others provide internet access to 4bn people around the world who are currently in the dark. “When Aquila is ready, it will be a fleet o

Deveron UAS: First Mover Advantage in $32B Ag Market for Drones
A Brief History of Drones Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or drones, have been around for the better part of a century, but it wasn't until the early 1990s that drones entered the popular lexicon, mostly through their use in stealth military applications. The first “drone” (named for making a sound similar to a male bee) was actually a boat. Introduced at an exhibition at Madison Square Garden in 1898, inventor Nikolas Tesla used voice commands (actually radio frequencies) to make the unman

Amazon Unveils Patented “Behive” Drone Delivery System for Cities
Amazon fulfillment centers, typically single-story warehouses located in suburbs, do not meet its goal of low-cost deliveries to city dwellers. Amazon’s patented solution is multi-story, drone-delivery behive center warehouses smack in the middle of major cities. Will this work? If Amazon has its way, cities around the US will have vertical drone centers shaped like giant beehives in the middle of downtown districts, allowing the online retailer to coordinate speedy deliveries by unmanned airc

Valuation Anomalies Suggest Historic Precious Metal Lows
Today, we’re going to start with an interview with billionaire Frank Giustra – perhaps, Canada’s most famous mining stock promoter.  Who, in this interview, comes as close to accusing gold of being manipulated as mainstream investors are “allowed.” Do you think the gold market is manipulated? No, I don’t think it is manipulated.  Manipulation is a strong word. But I do believe it is managed, by the policy makers who need to keep confidence in a system when it goes sideways.  Any major spike in t

Economist Joseph Schumpeter introduced innovation economics in his 1942 book Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy. Schumpeter said that industries must incessantly revolutionize the economic structure from within by innovating with better or more effective processes and products. We can define, or limit the term "innovation" to a product, or process that’s original, that’s more effective, and as a new application better meets new requirements or existing market needs.

U.S. downs pro-Syrian drone that fired at coalition forces
Reuters/06-08-17 The United States shot down a pro-Syrian government drone that fired toward U.S.-led coalition forces in Syria on Thursday, a U.S. military spokesman said, in a major escalation of tensions between Washington and troops supporting Damascus. The armed drone “hit dirt” and there were no injuries or damage done to the coalition patrol in southern Syria. But U.S. Army Colonel Ryan Dillon, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition fighting Islamic State, told reporters the drone meant t

Warning: Startup Societies are Disrupting Government
Via The Daily Bell Startup societies are disrupting the industry called government. New methods of governance are being experimented with that promise to make the old dinosaurs of social control go extinct. When new governments are formed, people can vote with their feet for the best style of governance. If people want to join a commune, they can go right ahead, but they won’t be able to force others into the mix with them. That means the people who want to innovate, start a business, create wea
