percent of the herd remains stuck in the old paradigms and phony numbers.
This trash is fed to the Sheeple daily to keep
deliberate nonsense in play. Stories and essays continue to pour out using
meaningless stats to prove a point that is totally irrelevant.
Look hard at
fundamentals and use technicals to discover
accurate cycles and timing for trading and investing. If you begin a
discussion with a grand set of phony facts based upon Big Boy
Banker’s and Politician’s Drool, you can never even
get close to an accurate answer.
discussion, we suggest some common sense ideas to discover clear-cut answers.
When a banker or politician with an agenda (and that’s most of ‘em), offers some grand new idea, take the other side
of the trade. It’s especially important to be a contrarian when there is no
reason for someone offering some strident opinion. Shakespeare
told us, “The lady doth protest too much - methinks.”
Applied here, you can see that some wise guy is planting fictional news to
promote his agenda and most probably its nonsense, or the opposite of
packs of lies we can report are: determination of unemployment, joblessness
factoids, and the reasons why we are where we are. Here is some interesting
stuff to consider…
It has been
reported that the US work force is normally about 185,000,000 people with a
typically standard unemployed number at 5%. That is supposed to be the norm.
Okay; now consider that the official numbers of folks on US Government food
stamps is near 47,000,000. Yet, one often touted and reported “official”number of jobless people is 15,170,000
unemployed. Explain how those numbers correlate. It seems more likely that
those 47,000,000 getting food aid are either underemployed, or unemployed.
Even if you
cut the 47,000,000 in half and say 23,500,000 are jobless, that is a far cry
from 15,170,000. Our colleague at Shadowstats.com, John Williams, is
reporting a realistic jobless number between 22.5% and 23%. John worked on
this stuff for years in Washington and he knows what he is talking about. He
is highly respected in our industry.
If we take
23% X 185,000,000 we get 42,550,000 people who are not working (or are
underemployed to the extent they need food stamps and other kinds of aid from
friends and family). That much larger number makes more sense
when you count the food stamps statistics. Some may say we aren’t the
sharpest knives in the drawer, but 42 Million is not even close to
15,000,000! See what we’re saying here?

One pile of
“barnyard stuff” that was promulgated by the treacherous bankers
was the recent LIBOR scandal. Some say this cost the lending community a cool
dollars. One foreign bank just paid a fine on this mess for about
$340,000,000 with no criminal proceedings attached. A nasty howl of protest
ensued as it was felt they got a slap on the wrist and were allowed to just
walk away from a really heinous crime. The fine was probably paid with stolen
taxpayer funds to boot.
NOW what have
these treacherous idiots dumped on the gold community?
Here are some
falsehoods we regularly see spouted all over the Internet, posted by
international media of all stripes and most particularly from the financial
community in New York, or by Washington politicians.
polls are probably the worst nest of snakes to hit D.C. in years. The man and
woman in the street know this and are totally turned-off on voting and
election process participation. We say, don’t do that. Get out there
and vote even if you think your one vote has no power and is meaningless. If
you don’t vote you better not complain about these turkeys.
list gold stuff, here is a very important point: when you criticize an
analyst or someone offering an opinion on market direction in precious
metals, please state whether you mean one day, a few days, a few weeks, a few
months, or decades. This really matters-please!
We have seen
some very influential and bright guys get slammed unfairly because some dope
reading his work did not pay attention to the timing cycle. This happens
every day. Pay attention. Those of us that do this work are not perfect. We
cannot call tops and bottoms. I’ve done it about three times in many
years, and can assure you it was just an accident that lined-up perfectly
because our technical math worked out well.
like to do good forecasting work based upon the best fundamental and
technical analysis we can find. If you are trading and investing and your game is
on the primary trend, either up or down, you win. Top and bottom calling is a
fool’s game. Don’t do it. Go for a slice in the middle staying on
trend and forget pivot points trying to maximize a trade.
fictitious numbers we must work with include the GDP report. This is very
important, so they always tell us it’s growing at +1-3%, usually with
the happy middle being the number of the day at +2%. Heres
some news folks: we see USA GDP sliding badly along with similar accidents in
the process. We say the US is -1.5% to -2% and that is Greater
Depression II territory.
saying with an unmitigated flash of brilliance that we might be in a
recession. Wow! No kidding. In our view, with joblessness at 25% and rising,
we are there baby, and it’s going to get a whole lot worse.

irony of the ending is something ya just gotta love! The mountain of crappy paper they produced
for all their phony credit and cash designed to keep this game in play goes toxic and
becomes worthless. The very mess they produced will take them
down, as they are the largest holders of these so-called crummy assets. How
is that for divine justice?
ruling the world with one government and one currency these crooks are going

with hundreds of millions of very unhappy people in the streets, would you
want to be a banker or politician? Is good old USA western justice on the
way? We hope people stay sane and use the courts. However, this is not what
the history books tell us. We’re not going to the movies for

proven itself to be the ultimate asset for thousands of years. In times of
trouble and depression, all people accept gold, as it has intrinsic value and
holds no counterparty risk. Yes, it is not the perfect daily trading
currency, however, if you could hold $100,000 in USA or Canadian gold coins,
or $100,000 in USA paper dollars, which would you prefer?

assets for retention of value, increase in value and hold the ability to be
accepted by all, anywhere in the world. Just this past week, two of the
largest traders in the world came back into the gold market and they are
heavy; as in billionaires. They did not make their money being stupid. They
are very astute and canny traders and vote with a huge purse.
Big Pharma Has Damaged Millions of Kids Who Are Now Adults.
This fact is
not difficult to figure out. We have thousands of kids who were put on drugs
by parents/teachers/doctors to calm them down. We have been fed a steady
injection of lies that our offspring have “disorders” that must
be treated with drugs, when in reality they just need a good spanking.
However, since the drooling PC idiots passed rules where kids cannot be
disciplined or you go to jail, we’ve grown two or three generations of
nutcase kids; now adults and doing naughty, deranged stuff… possibly
and probably related to the side-effects of Big Pharma’s
newest “miracle pill” – take a look for yourself: the list
of precautions, dangers and side effects is in type-font 8 and takes up two
pages to every one of the seller’s advertising pieces.
Believe it or
not we think the observation of all these messed up minds has indeed
altered the social graces and intelligence of supposedly normal adults. They
have no clue as to what is real and what is unreal. Years ago a family
relative told us that we’d see the mental asylums over-flow. She was
correct; but many of these victims are in jail as well as in the hospital and
sadly, more are dumped into the streets of our nation.
How does this
relate to trading and investing? We have to contend with weird markets,
dishonest leaders and fund managers and a laundry list of other psychopaths
we’ve discussed in previous essays and a good percentage of them are a
product of Big Pharma’s antics. This really
can affect the markets and traders’ behavior.
Bloomberg reported last evening that the volume
on the NYSE has been steadily dropping since 2007. Yesterday, it was 450,000,000
when the daily turn is normally 1,700,000,000 averaged over prior years. Does
this mean the stock market is dying? We don’t think so but you have to
wonder: what in the world is happening?
We say what
is happening, is investors and traders are voting with their feet and getting
out of the way as they particularly fear the 4th and
following quarters. Investors do not like unknown stuff and between New York
activities and gaming the system (and the even worst kind in
Washington DC), it just seems better to keep your powder dry and run with the

asset investors and buyers. Gold is number one on their lists and they
aren’t selling any. This week in Tokyo it was reported the younger
generation is quickly turning to gold. This was unheard of in past years.
Middle Easterners are all big gold buyers and holders. In India, where
recession took hold, they cannot afford their normal 25% purchase of all
annual global gold sales, but this does not mean they are not working on it.
Indians in India are smart gold buyers/traders and magnificent jewelry
producers. Women are often seen wearing their entire passbook savings account
in gold jewelry.
In the US,

crops and most importantly buying gold, silver and items on lists related to
