 Gold and Silver Soar on Brexit Vote but Mining Stocks Remain Vastly Undervalued
 - Jason Hamlin - Gold Stock Bull
US Gold confiscation again possible? For those investors wondering how to allocate their gold investments between stocks, paper certificates, and physical gold and silver, you might want to read a short history of gold regulation in the US: In 1933, President Roosevelt outlawed the ownership or possession of monetary gold by any US individual, partnership, association or corporation. Executive Order 6102 required all US citizens to deliver on or before May 1, 1933, all but a small amount of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates owned by them to the Federal Reserve, in exchange for $20.67 per troy ounce. A year later, the Gold Reserve Act revalued the price of gold to $35.00 per ounce (effectively devaluing the US dollar). This was an immediate 69 % profit for foreign holders of gold, at the expense of U.S. citizens whose gold holdings had been confiscated. In 1971, the US dollar had become increasingly overvalued. Nixon finally suspended the convertibility of the dollar into gold or other reserve assets at $35 an ounce, and gold rose to around $195.00 in 1974., while US investors still could not own gold bullion. Effective 31 December 1974, near the peak of the market, it again became legal for US citizens to own gold. The price of gold then declined to $100.00 an ounce in 1976. It then rose to $850 an ounce in 1980. From 1999 to 2002, England's Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown sold about half of England's gold reserves. This was done pretty close to the market bottom in the mid $200s an ounce. Worse, he announced the sales in advance, further lowering the price. The phrase "barbarous relic" was commonly used to refer to gold at that time. It then rose to another peak of $1921.50 in September 2011. I have no idea whether anything like these events will play out in the US or other countries in the near future, but it may be a good policy to consider spreading your precious metals investments among stocks, ETFs with physical holdings, and personal holdings. Paper futures, options and other derivative markets can have Black Swan events which result in defaults and market halts which make it impossible to to trade or access your investments, or to close out a bad (or very good) position, until prices change drastically, as happened in 1987 Black Monday with stock options and futures. The UK, US, or other countries could even sell (or increase) their gold holdings. Anything is possible. Remember why you buy precious metals in the first place!!

 Burnt Toast  (3)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
"Hapless Bernie Sanders blew his chance to call her on that months ago — 'The American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails'!" This is just further evidence that Bernie never intended to beat Hillary and hit her where she was most vulnerable. Bernie was a globalist agent pretending to oppose her. He also sabotaged Ron Paul's 2010 Fed audit so he's a secret Wall St agent contrary to his supposed anti-banker agenda and don't forget he's promotes the Global Warming Hoax like a good globalist shill that he is. Kunstler shows his allegiance to his NYC globalist bosses in trying to characterize Trump as a "loose artillery shell" issuing "disjointed utterances" and calling him a "ham-headed sonofabitch" You can ignore the Trump material as Kunstler is a globalist shill throwing Hillary under the bus and preparing the way for "Ridin with Biden" or some other fool like him.

 The Pinko Power Elite
 - Tom DiLorenzo - lewRockwell
Exactly right. How ironic and sad that a World War still in living memory was fought precisely against fascism. This toxic mixture of big government and big business, both corrupt and with far too much power inevitably leads to militarism and finally war. Hear the war drums? I wish and hope I am wrong but this current adventure will not be over until more millions (and possibly billions) of lives have been lost.

Exactly, the fascist nature of the society is appallingly obvious, yet so very few even breath a whiff of reality. Every taxpayer grant to a favored university, industry, and other tax incentives from The People (DC, in particular) to churches to toll the line is in plain view, and repeating myself, this is the text book definition of fascism.

although I wouldn't call what's happening out there 'capitalism' --

LOL...that's like saying, "Yes, officer, he's the guy that did it, although he doesn't look anything like the guy I saw do it."

The only thing capitalist about our system anymore is a name. But this is most definitely NOT capitalism. Perhaps "crony capitalism," as many have explained. But that's as fraudulent a "capitalism" as is a "democracy" where everyone gets a ballot, but after collecting them all, the Chief Dog sitting presently in the position being voted on gets to choose the winner.

What we really have is fascism, where govt and big industry and the military complex collude to make each other wealthy at the expense of WeThePeople (and really of the rest of the world's working classes). What we have with the financial/bankster system is legal counterfeiting as it supports the fascist govt with fake money that they get paid (by WeThePeople) to create out of nothing and lend to the govt at interest. That is NOT capitalism by any stretch of the imagination.

 Where Does All the Money Go? Let's Kick Around Colgate University
 - Nathan Lewis - New World Economics
It's even worse than that, I'm afraid. There's a massive over- and double- counting of faculty that you can't get from that sheet. Many of the "faculty" are actually staff/administrators. For example, at my school, the deans and librarians were counted as faculty, effectively halving the student/faculty ratio. There are similarly weird "job definition" rules that allow for some amazing salaries at the administrative level (for a time, the HR person was earning over a quarter million a year at a CC with less than 1000 students, because she was in position to re-define her job). Anyway, you should go to some classes, and see with your own eyeballs, that there are more than 10 students in a typical class; this should be particularly true at an undergraduate-focused school, which wouldn't have the hyper-specialized material of grad school. I'd love to know how to get those kinds of salaries; I've over 25 years of experience in higher education, books, many published (and paid) articles, spotless record, and will never break 50k in salary in my lifetime. I know my retirement income will be approximately zero (I'll have a better estimate in around 10 years), despite having the same employer for 20 years now. Did you note how quickly the bonus compensation to the "top employees" is skyrocketing? A million in 2011, over three million in 2013? This is typical. Meanwhile, when I do the math regarding the tuition of my students, I see I'm bringing in near 7 figures of revenue every year. Even though most students don't actually pay the sticker price of tuition, you, I, and everyone else who tries to follow the money in higher education gets puzzled trying to figure out where, exactly, does that money go. I address many higher education-related questions on my blog: www.professorconfess.blogspot.com.

Uh-huh, yeah, maybe; but the impoverishment of the USA (Britain, Greece, etc. You get the idea) has happened under aegis of the capitalist doctrine (although I wouldn't call what's happening out there 'capitalism' ) and its practitioners. What may or may not occur under a socialist government at this time is irrelevant. Nice try, though.

 BNEF Report Says Solar Energy, Batteries, Wind Will Dominate, Fossil Fuel Usage to Collapse
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Global human induced carbon emissions are miniscule and have zero effect on climate. I call Climate Change Believers, well meaning but grossly misinformed fanatics. What concerns me most is that kids in schools are getting brainwashed by the pseudoscience of CC and are totally non exposed to alternative opinion. I agree "huge changes are underway" but lets all hope that the investment in renewables is economically and practically viable, which does not seem to be the case in Germany for example.

Answer To :Jim C. - 6/14/2016 at 5:00 PM GMT
Kunstler said, re the Islamic terror in Orlando, "No one knows what to do about it, including, of course, the blowhard Trump."

If Kunstler could ever get over his personal guilt of having voted twice for Obama, he would acknowledge that Trump has, repeatedly, told America what he would do to combat Islamic terror in America. He would 1) make an end to ISIS in the Middle East 2) place a temporary ban on Muslim immigration and 3) encourage personal defense in line with the 2nd Amendment. These are enormous first steps. He would not be a dithering Obama who, I suspect, is privately sympathetic to terrorism in America.

Kunstler said, regarding the killer Mateen having been born in New York, "Good luck trying to deport new wannabes like them."

Again, if Kunstler were serious, he would understand that Trump would not have allowed Mateen's radical Afgan parents into our nation in the first place.

On another note, we must not forget that Kunstler for years promoted the fallacy of 'Peak Oil' as a means of forcefully driving Americans out of their homes, into the woods, and onto a diet of fruits and nuts....not to mention sitting around a communal fire listening to the pontifications of the Great Guru himself. Now that the concept of 'Peak Oil' has been disproved and replaced by the reality of 'Forever Oil' Kunstler is now just another irrelevant Liberal voice. Past time for him to retire to those woods he would have us relegated to.

 19 Point Lead for “Leave” in Latest Brexit Poll is Nonsense: What’s Really Happening?
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
You FINALLY have a problem I can help you solve Mish ! We can go with what we KNOW is certain and easily project that certainty into the outcome of the Brexit Vote. We know the Elite of the EU control the Voting MACHINES. We know the Elite of the EU will do every underhanded deed possible to achieve their goals. We know what happened to Russian investments in the banks of Cyprus once the EU Central Bank made an evil decision. We know the outcome of the Grexit Vote when the Greek People demanded to leave the EU. We know the POLLS have ALWAYS been wrong about the outcome of every vote ever taken in the EU. When you add all the certainties up, along with knowing "the worst possible outcome for the British People will be the chosen path by the Masters of the EU" we can, without any doubt, say there will be NO Brexit from the EU. The FIX is already in Mish. Glad I could help.

KN had made it known a year or more ago that AG was withholding some of its PM from the market b/c of low prices. I certainly hope that both deals, AG's and ASM's include significantly higher prices than the CRIMEX spot. Otherwise i'd feel as though mgmt was betraying us loyal shareholders.

Bernie isn't much better really. He was fine with throwing away over a trillion dollars now on the F-35 and he's already stated publicly that our involvements in the many Mideast wars are absolutely necessary. Simply another machine politician although a 'kinder, gentler' one. His biggest failing, however, is that he is almost totally disconnected from the entrenched good ol' boy network that really makes the country run, for better or worse, usually worse. Those guys will run circles around Sanders and lawlessness and corruption will increase exponentially during his administration should he be elected. I believe, perhaps foolishly, that our true leaders, those who could possibly effect change, are hiding and perhaps may never wish to be seen again.
