  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

Gold Manipulators are Desperate 
With virtually empty gold vaults, the central banks and bullion banks are now becoming desperate. The action we are seeing in the paper gold market with the recent $50 takedown is yet more proof of the corner that the gold manipulators have put themselves into by having virtually no physical gold left. A rising gold price is dangerous for the manipulators. This would inevitably lead to more physical demand, something that would be disastrous for the manipulators. As the holders of paper gold b

  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

Nanex: The Market Is Rigged, With Details
Oh no, this could not possibly be correct, say the trolls, shills, revolving door careerists, media carnival barkers, and conmen's assistants. This does not only apply to very large orders in excess of 10,000 shares.  I have seen the same type of activity in smaller markets with orders of only a few thousand shares.  Anyone who has Level 2 access can see it if they look closely enough. These pampered princes of Wall Street are steadily degrading the markets, and distorting and taxing the real

Silver Before it’s Too Late 
The ongoing plight of the long term value investor continues - seemingly without end. However, decades of exuberance and greed have colluded. The financial establishment has created an accident waiting to happen. The mainstream has not "priced in" risk, which makes it even harder to travel the road less traveled.And once the accident happens, it may be too late.If silver prices were to suddenly move back toward natural price equilibrium, there would naturally (not always the best thing) be a rus

  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

How Eastern Gold Demand Is Transforming The Gold Market
GoldSilverWorlds has a good post up summarising my tweets and Al Korelin interview about the LBMA Forum in Singapore. Below are some additional notes I took which I didn't tweet or talk about. Zhang Bing Nan of China Gold Association (view his slides here) when asked about the West to East flow gave what I think is a classic Chinese answer: the globe is round so what is East and what is West, which got a laugh. Other comments: no matter who you lend your dollars to it is not safe; not the same

Gold : Western Delusions vs. Chinese Realities
I don’t want to say that mainstream analysts are stupid when it comes to China’s gold habits, but I did look up how to say that word in Chinese… One report claims, for example, that gold demand in China is down because the yuan has fallen and made the metal more expensive in the country. Sounds reasonable, and it has a grain of truth to it. But as you’ll see below, it completely misses the bigger picture, because it overlooks a major development with how the country now imports precious metals

The Perfect Crime and the Plight of the Modern Silverite
Silver is not just any old commodity. It is old money. Despite massive efforts and price fixing, clipping and manipulation, it has remained central to monetary and political systems for centuries. Today it is small and relatively dark in the context of modern investing.Desperate times call for desperate measures. And the desperation to buy and hold metal should simply be proportional to the desperation of the will of the monetary powers to maintain the status quo.Here's a quote from ZeroHedge th

Heck, I could write entire articles on a half dozen topics related to Friday’s “horrible headlines” alone; from St. Louis Fed President Bullard warning of a U.S.

Edward Snowden Towers Over His Enemies
The Guardian just ran an interview with Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor who blew the whistle on perhaps the most extensive secret spying program in human history and is now a man without a country, very much in danger of assassination or rendition or any number of other nasty things should Washington get ahold of him. It's a short interview, just 14 minutes, but by the end it is clear that this guy is vastly smarter and more interesting than the politicians and bureaucrats

Video of MH17 Hit by Missile; Update ... 
Reader David sent an email and accompanying video that purportedly shows the Malaysian Flight 17 being hit by missile. Let's take a look. David Writes ... It appears as if the right engine and wing area took the hit. The camera operator is able to record the moment of impact in the first 2 seconds of this clip. Note the smoke burst left behind on impact with the #2 engine area. There is a 18 second delay (speed of sound delay) due to the distance and altitude of the explosion. Question: How

They’re Lying To Us, Part 4: Fake Pensions 
Most people learn by the age of 10 or so that making promises is easier than keeping them. That's why really big promises like corporate pensions and national retirement/health care programs are so easy to screw up. Offering someone a cushy retirement or a lifetime of healthcare feels great and generates massive goodwill from the recipient. So elected officials and corporate executives tend to over-promise in the moment and leave the hard part -- actually making good on those promise

The Electrical Grid May Well Be The Next War's Battlefield 
We talk a lot about Peak Cheap Oil as the Achilles' heel of the exponential monetary model, but the real threat to the quality of our daily lives would be a sustained loss of electrical power. Anything over a week without power for any modern nation would be a serious problem. When the power goes out, everything just stops. For residential users, even a few hours begins to intrude heavily as melting freezers, dying cell phones, and the awkward realization that we don't remember how to play board

  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

Holier than Thou: Why Should Anyone Believe the US, Ukraine, or Russia? What is the US Attempting to 
I am quite tired of rhetoric from the Obama administration and Kiev regarding the situation in Ukraine. Hardly any of it is believable. Indeed, some Ukraine propaganda efforts of Kiev are so amateurish they appear as sloppy acts of desperate coverups. If so, then it is far more likely Ukraine is the guilty party, not the separatists. If you are innocent, you do not choose such tactics. What is the US and Kiev Attempting to Hide? Earlier today, Obama Issued a Stern Warning to Russia coupled

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

The Gold Report: The Washington D.C.-based Silver Institute reports that net silver demand has exceeded net silver supply each year since 2004, with a supply deficit of 113 million ounces (113 Moz) reported in 2013. Why hasn't that trend translated into dramatically higher silver prices? Sean Rakhimov: First, I don't put much faith in these numbers. For instance, CPM Group has somewhat different numbers. Either way, silver supply and demand have been roughly in equilibrium, in my opinion, over

Argentina "Determined to Default" Second Time
Background: Argentina defaulted on bonds following a debt crisis in 2001-2002. 92% of the investors agreed to haircuts, but a vulture fund picked up an 8% share at rock bottom prices and refused to negotiate. In June, the US Supreme Court ruled that Argentina Cannot Selectively Default on the small group of hold-outs. The problem with the ruling is that if Argentina pays the vulture fund full value, it will have to pay all the bondholders full value, and that would wreck the country again.
