  War Zones 
I srael’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu summed it up the other day when he said, “We use our rockets to protect our women and children; they [Hamas] use their women and children to protect their rockets.” Some time ago, the Left adopted the Palestinians as their pet oppressed minority group so there is nothing that Israel might do that will be okay with them, except to commit suicide, that is, cease to exist — which is the stated policy of Hamas. Every time Israel refuses the suggestion that

  Putin’s Folly: Shooting Down Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 
In the ‘fog of war’, tragic mistakes are to be expected. But in the case of Malaysian Airways Flight MH17, Russian militants have attacked a civilian aircraft and essentially murdered 298 citizens of mostly European countries who have no part in the hostilities. Adding to the evidence of the malice inherent in the act, the plane was cruising at 33,000 feet when hit by a missile, according to early reports. At this point, it is not a given that the attack was originated by the Russian side of wha

  What The Media Won't Report About Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 
Just days after the tragic crash of a Malaysian Airlines flight over eastern Ukraine, Western politicians and media joined together to gain the maximum propaganda value from the disaster. It had to be Russia; it had to be Putin, they said. President Obama held a press conference to claim - even before an investigation - that it was pro-Russian rebels in the region who were responsible. His ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, did the same at the UN Security Council - just one day af

  How Will It All End? 
How do you see the economic endgame playing out for the U.S. and the world? That’s this week’s discussion topic, and although some in this forum will undoubtedly lean toward the Armageddon scenario, we should always leave room to imagine a far sunnier outcome, such as a Second Great Depression deeper than the Mindanao Trench.  I want you to have fun with this one, so set your minds free before you set pen to paper.  My own outlook falls somewhere in-between, tempered by the perhaps misplaced hop

  They Will Take Everything If You Don’t Stop Them: Ten Things You Must Do To Defend Yourself

In actuality this is about your neighbors and those in your community that will ruthlessly mob up and literally storm your own home for what you have after a long drawn out disaster, perhaps sooner.

Alasdair Macleod - Finance and Eco.
  What is with the silver fix?
GoldMoney's Alasdair Macleod joined Financial Services Network to discuss the impending demise of the London Silver Fix. Will it force the LBMA to become more transparent and to modernize? Alasdair believes they need to do this to remain the center of the world's precious metal trade. He also believes that the latest slam down in gold prices was due to profit taking and not an organized take-down. Click here to listen to the full interview

  "No Perry Mason Moment": US Intelligence Admits "No Direct Evidence Linking Russia to MH17"
Earlier today, and several times recently, I received emails accusing me of being a Russian spy and asking me how much I was receiving from RT. I find such accusations highly amusing. Here's the deal: Few bloggers are willing to discuss MH17 for fear of getting it wrong. Whereas I suspect nearly everything, but especially reports coming from Kiev and the US. My reasons are threefold: There are more questions surrounding Kiev and US reports than Russian reports. Kiev has been caught twice in

If mining stocks did not provide enough leverage, there are still other avenues that offer even more leverage than mining shares. The decision to use leverage in a precious metals purchase is a decision to accept a greater percentage of risk relative to your capital outlay. The

  GATA needs help, so please consider buying a T-shirt
Challenging all the money and power in the world, GATA long has operated more or less on a shoestring. This has largely been our own fault, insofar as we have put most of our effort into research and clamor and little into fundraising. The situation has gotten critical over the last year as central banks have intensified their efforts to suppress monetary metals prices, most of the monetary metals mining industry has chosen to curl up and die guietly rather than fight back, and metals investors

  What the $7billion Fine to Citigroup Reveals 
The American bank Citigroup has just been condemned by the Department of Justice to pay a fine of $7billion for its role in the subprime crisis. “Citigroup knew about serious and generalised deficiencies with the more and more risky loans it was transforming into bonds” and, nevertheless, it kept on with it, explained Eric Holder, the United States’ Attorney General. The big banks are being investigated by American justice for their responsibility in the subprime crisis: JP Morgan has already pa

Oil Trading Alert originally sent to subscribers on July 23, 2014, 10:02 AM. Trading position (short-term; our opinion): In our opinion no positions are justified from the risk/reward perspective. On Tuesday, crude oil lost 0.87% as investors jumped to the sidelines to await the release of the EIA weekly report. As a result, light crude reversed once again and corrected most of Monday’s increase. Will we see something new in the near future? Yesterday, official data showed that the annual rat

Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Euro’s Breakdown and Its Implications
Gold & Silver Trading Alert originally sent to subscribers on July 23, 2014, 5:07 AM. Briefly: In our opinion (full) speculative short positions in gold, silver and mining stocks are now justified from the risk/reward perspective. The Euro Index broke decisively below the rising long-term support line (based on the 2012 and mid-2013 bottoms) and this is a major event not only for the currency itself, but also for the precious metals sector.

Peak Madness
Since TPTB realized their fiat Ponzi scheme had passed the “point of no return” in mid-2011, market manipulation has reached heights never before imagined – culminating in last week’s “absolute peak of lunacy,” when Goldman Sachs invoked the long discredited “Fed Model” to predict the S&P 500 would double by year-end if both Treasury yields and corporate earnings utterly implode.  Which, by the way, may well occur if the nearly all-time low in the Baltic Dry Index (including the weakest July in
