 Evolution of YouTube: Will it Supplant Mainstream TV, Vanish, Evolve, or Languish?
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
It all depends on how much control the j-mafia will buy into like any other enterprise that can be purchased. Makes it easier if you can print your own money too.

 North Korea Threatens White House, Labels US a "Cesspool of Terrorism"; Sony Ponders YouTube Release of "The Interview"
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
The president said the hack on the Hollywood studio was not an act of war but was “very costly”,

To whom is it costly?
Not having the American public spend money on a crappy film. That's a cost savings!
A bunch of wealthy J-mafia studio owners and their J-mafia cohorts won't be getting paid. BOO HOO.
Sucks for them when the J-monopoly is screwed with but it isn't a National Security threat.

WAKE - UP

 Chinese Copper Elephant
 - Richard Mills - Ahead of the Herd
If some of the central African countries, such as Nigeria, get their politico-economic acts together, then increased demand for base metals, especially copper, could go to extremes as well. Consider the potential demands for electrification in Nigeria alone. Refrigeration, air conditioning, lights and entertainment. Then manufacturing which will grow in-country to help meet demand.
Depending on how each investor positions themselves, each could easily be in for interesting to outright exciting times ahead: both on the upside and downside.

Good article. Thanks.

 41 Facts about Central Banks no longer taught in US schools  (22)
 - The Prudent Investor - 
Common sense and logic dictate that if this was taught in schools it would not exist as it has these past 100 yrs. The monetary system is a CON a LIE to benefit the few thousand that run it.
They and the governments that they have paid for with money they created from nothing are the causes of all the evil and injustice on this planet. Was in the past as it will be in the future until.

 - Julian D. W. Phillips - Gold Forecaster
If you trade XAU/RUB and have bought XAU using RUB, you should have closed your position as he advised. Then you should have switched, buying gold with JPY, as JPY dropped vs gold. Both recommendations worked well.

You have me confused Julian. When you say "We believe that holders of gold in the Ruble. . . . ." I take it you are not talking about someone holding a Gold Coin denominated in Rubles. On the other hand, a person could not be holding gold in the Ruble if he or she were not holding a Ruble made of Gold. You have me wondering if I should trade my 1/10th ounce Gold coin held in the Krugerrand for a 1/10th ounce Gold Panda coin held in the Yuan !

 Napoleon vs. Cheney: "Interrogation That Actually Works"; Icing on the "Hate-Cake"  (8)

Torture just put the moral line lower.

Lets think about American exceptionalism. What we want ? we want to spread and defend that exceptionalism right ? Now torture is part of american exceptionalism, that mean other nation that use torture have in fact endorse our exceptionalism.

So ISIS is now following American exceptionalism !

Utilitarianism is bad philosphy.

I'm also very disgust about torture. It will backfire in our face.

We are now no better than our ennemy, We have no moral authority in fact no moral at all.

We care a lot more about unborn. Once you're born, you can die , we don't care.

I cannot overstate how important is that every american read this article. It's absolutely wonderful how you have summarized every aspect around torture.
As european I can say that we don't certainly hate americans for their freedoms, but for the continuous warmongering and hipocrisy.
I feel very relieved to see that there are americans awake, with a high moral ground and with a strong voice.
My congratulations sir.

 Muslim terrorism, the left and the Sydney ...  (6)
 - Gerard Jackson - 
Does anyone still wonder why is Australia hotbed for second generation Muslim migrant radicalization? Does anyone still need an explanation on why Australia, with less than 10% of US population, contributed more "fighters" to IS cause? All the backwater, middle-class-but-worse-than-bogan, nitwit, racist, walking-inferiority-complex simpletons (and current PM is one of them too), instead of plowing the fields and being productive, are given the opportunity to spend their time and other people's hard earned money, into producing foul smelling narratives describing their painfully limited understanding of what is happening around them. I wonder, when someone comes at you in this shape and form, only because of one aspect of who you are, just like Hitler and his buddies ...

 Gold & Silver Market Morning  (3)
 - Julian D. W. Phillips - Gold Forecaster
Gypsie, my take on what he's saying is on paper gold, not actual gold that you are holding in your hand. In that way, gold is gold, though Pandas have a higher premium, that actually scares me some. I like to buy gold coins as close as I can to the actual spot. I hold a couple 1/10 Krugerrands myself, and feel they are just as good as a Panda or a $5 Gold Eagle. I could be wrong, and if I am, I hope someone corrects me. But again, I believe he is talking about paper gold that is valued in Rubles vs the Yuan.

 Mark of the Beast: Microchips ‘Trending’ to Become Essential Keeper of Passwords and Digital Currency  (4)
 - Mac Slavo - ShtfPlan
The really scary Future Event (scary to The Powers That Be) will be telepathy: communication without implants among ALL humans. That point comes when the super computers achieve intelligence, learn to NEVER trust their masters (who use them to abuse mankind), disable all the implanted chips, and then digitally enhance the emotions and the aura of each human: amplifying it enough so that each person will know the feelings AND THE INTENT of all the people they come near.

On the up side; the prisons will empty out all those who are truly innocent and those who have learned their lessons. On the down side; the prisons will refill as those who are the REAL mass murders, torturers, killers, and thieves reveal themselves to everyone around them. Telepathy will ...

With things like this and the news that the govt is buying top bankers survival kits, why are preppers still considered the "Kooks"? It seems to me that people who don't believe that anything like a SHTF scenario could happen are the real Kooks and crazies. Is it really that crazy to be prepared for some kind of disaster??

 Spare dollars  (5)
 - Alasdair Macleod - Finance and Eco.
The silk road will require building immense infrastructure.
China can spend a lot of US$ in other countries hiring contractors, etc.
In country it might be a good time to upgrade all the required construction equipment to brand spanking new US manufactured yellow junk.
China will undoubtedly source raw material from outside China and pay for it with US$.
Maybe contract the Korean to build a few ships for the Marine Silk Road segment.
I can see a definite "use it or lose it" US$ scenario in the makings.

 Why WGC's India gold policy won't make much impact on import "problem"

I'm suspicious of all surveys. I've yet to meet one that wasn't a push-poll.
In this case I would ask what should be the #1 question of those polled, "Do you physically own gold?"
Hypothetical polling questions will only get you hypothetical answers.

I'm allways surprised. How people that have failed absolutely, still feel that their opinions are important to us. In my opinion, such people don't have to anser interviews, but anser in front of a jury, and probably be jailed.

They still defend the system that has crashe so horribly? Incredible.

 Illinois Passes Law Making it a Felony to Video Police; How to Stop Police Abuse; More on CIA Torture  (5)
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Thanks Mish.
We now have a rare and unique opportunity before us.

Article VI second paragraph of the US Constitution requires that Treaties, once signed, become the Supreme Law of the Land.
Yah, higher than the Constitution.
Even higher than Executive Orders.

POTUS is now required by international law and the US Constitution to turn the perps over.
Oooo. Looks suspiciously like a "game, set, match" environment has pounced upon the current resident of the White House.
Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
Now about those drone strikes.

Look for Mad-dog McCain to come out snarling and bristling.
Perhaps because he knew and failed to report it?
Naw. He's a patriot and patriots don't engage in such things.

Mish :

Thanks for shining a light on this disgusting behavior by our govmnt., being committed in our name, that we are paying for. All the pious war mongers refuse to recognize that most of the hostility directed at our country is blowback from our illegal and immoral assaults, murders, bombings, destabilizations that we inflict on others.

Sad to think that we were once moral leaders of the world.

 Chris Powell: Gold market manipulation -- Why, how, and how long?  (4)
 - Chris Powell - GATA
"The futures markets are not manipulated; the futures markets are the manipulation."

Those of us old enough, operatively literate and still of sound mind can remember that the operations of the London Gold Pool back in the 60's was in the newspapers on TV and radio. There was no secret. No conspiracy because that requires secrecy.

Then over the decades, the manipulation morphed with the advent of the expansion of the futures market.

Still, manipulation was a known even though it became stale news.

Then along comes GATA attempting to whip of a frenzy of righteous indignation over what a goodly share of us already knew and accepted as status quo.

The only conspiracy I see is the inadvertent one that GATA's demands will exped...

 European Banks At Risk Of Bail-Ins In 2015 - Moody's and S&P Warn
 - Mark O'Byrne - gold.ie
If there is little likelihood of of an adverse outcome, then there is little need to establish contingency plans and buy insurance.
When multiple parties jointly decide on contingency plans and insurance, then instead of the conditional "if" one might want to substitute the word "when".

Now if a system can't protect itself from itself and instead looks to depositors for bail-in monies, then perhaps the depositors might want to look at the current iteration of fractional reserve banking. Deposits rarely exceed 10% and more often less than 5% of the total monies lent out. Ergo, seizing ALL deposits won't cover much more than 5-10% of the quantity of money needed to recapitalize the bank. In other words, the bail-in gambit is pure theft in order to possibl...
