 Fort Knox, Fort Hocks or Fort Shocks: Three United States Gold Scenarios  (27)
 - Stewart Dougherty - 
Excellent article - glad it is kept safe in the archives, as I will use it for ammo against the non-contrarians I know. Also, it gives me confidence in my own principles and emboldens my lack of confidence in both the US and its fiat currency Ponzi scheme it is protecting.

 The Police State and Moral Relativism  (5)
 - Nelson Hultberg - AFR.org
The decay of moral behaviour is likely more the outfall of the abandonment of christian beliefs brought on predominantly from paedophiles within the church. Media also plays an important part in the fall of western society with the abandonment of values and moral absolutes. It is a lot more than the schooling system which more follows on rather than creates the environment for change for the worst. I like this article as it addresses what is at the core of much of what is destroying our way of life: the cessation of a caring society and the onset of greed on steroids.

 What Would Brexit Mean for Gold?
 - Przemyslaw Radomski CFA - SunshineProfits
No comments?? Really! Oh Well - just finished the article on GOFO - the article sounded interesting as the prospect of using Gold as collateral for loans could be a functional mechanism if the risk was low. But no comments there either...,

 Growing Movement for Brexit Has the Elites Shaking in Their Boots - Nathan McDonald
 - Sprott Money - 
The past three British elections have gone contrary to overwhelming public opinion. The political polls BEFORE those elections leaned heavily toward the opposite results of the elections. You can go back and look at the polls taken before the last Parliamentary Elections and see the "predicted outcome" was no where near the "actual outcome." Also check the "predicted outcome" of the vote to set Scotland Free. This obviously means "The Fix is In" on British Elections. Vote any way you want ~ the decision has already been made.

 How Strong is Physical Demand for Precious Metals?
 - Jason Hamlin - Gold Stock Bull
A good article Mr Hamlin. The goldsmiths' strike in India is off and jewelers have got back that smile on their faces. Gold likes the turmoil which was political in nature during the years 2008 to early 2012 when it shot up from $ 750 to almost $ 1900 if I am not wrong. As political upheavals resolved recovering us from the brink of a world war, gold retraced but only to levels above $ 1000 +/- ( considered unbreachable when gold initially started to rise to much higher levels finally). The nature of turmoil that is now building up is ECONOMIC much worst than the threat of physical war as there is no fear of death or disability in this case. The option for survival, therefore, is to own some physical gold. This understanding among the educated is fast spreading and is in its own way contributing to the increased demand for precious metals.

This is the kind of news that is not being reported because the m.s.m. are all atwitter that there's a man in the ladies room, sort of. Oh, by the way, Puerto Rico defaulted, and will continue to do so. But I guess that's not 'news' either.

You remain a five star author James. In my opinion, you can go one step further using "The Known Knowns." For example: are people distracted from anything important by the constant flow of "Trans-gender News ?" Going back to Atomic Power: the experts knew the possibilities of catastrophe right out of the gate. The possibility of disaster was never explained to the people ~ and if it were ~ the people were NOT in on the decision to adopt atomic power. That brings up a question of those who have access to Super Computers. Is there an algorithm where all the social information can be fed in and the social possibilities come out ?? If there is such an algorithm, then those with access already know the outcomes of this trans-gender issue. In fact, those with access to Super Computers already know the outcome of The FED, printed up money, the next election and what happens in the next World War.

Answer To :Gypsy - 5/11/2016 at 1:18 PM GMT
Well Steve, let's say you're right about the Trump Presidency and The Wall not being built. We already have no wall. Let's say you're right about the Trump Presidency not changing The Trade Deal with China. We already have the bad trade deal with China that costs us $558 BILLION a year. Let's say you're right about the Trump Presidency not eliminating the TPP Deal, and not altering Obama Care, and not making the Federal Reserve answer to The People. We already HAVE all that.

Steve; what you're saying is: the Trump Presidency will be a continuation of the Obama Presidency. Do you really believe ANYONE will believe you ?

 Trumptopia  (4)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
The real dysfunction and confusion factor under the surface is the Globalist Deep State's agenda to kill off, weaken and balkanize sovereign nations in order to finalize their global control. On top of that agenda we have the masses poisoned with Vaccines, Fluoride, GMOs and Chemtrails that are weak, sick and can't think clearly and are desperate for a savior like Big Government. For those who think this new agenda that normalizes effeminate males is strange, you should understand that our globalist controllers are preparing the way for a world of poisoned, unisex, diverse, generic, easily manipulated, global mutants poisoned by the sex-hormone altering effects of GMOs. You see a major component of GMO's Roundup weed killer contains Glyphosate, that is an Endocrine Disrupter, that produces less males overall and less masculine males that could stand up to and rebel against our Globalist Parasitic Manipulators. What seems like a bizarre bathroom controversy that has the media (MSM) in a frenzy to vilify North Carolina's traditional bathroom laws is really a freak-normalization operation introducing the new neutered, global citizen that will give no one any trouble now that the GMO poisoned food was snuck into our food supply 20 years ago and the first wave of effeminate freaks should start appearing. Just as the other bizarre campaign to make normal - inter-racial couples, all over the media, designed to balkanize and weaken the masses with divisiveness, this new campaign seeks to make normal a more docile, effeminate, less aggressive and rebellious and more easily manipulated global slave that survives the initial poisoning.

 What Happened to the Revolution?  (4)
 - Ron Paul - 
This sounds like a right wing political article. We have 2 ends of the spectrum. On the one end we have socialism. On the other we have what is loosely known as the 'free market'. In America there is no 'land of the free' as the 'free market' has been manipulated by the rich and the governments they elect by their media outlets preaching their dishonest right wing propaganda. So a 'free' system now sees 0.1% of the population which owns 90% of everything...and still crying poor! You must be joking Ron. Clearly you are a part of the ruling class talking BS to control the masses. The free market only works when it is not tightly controlled or manipulated. The rich do not get to be rich by hard work and business acumen alone. They cheat. And they are aided by crooked governments and the Republican Party is the living proof. Ask anybody who has lost loved ones in a massacre about their demands for gun control as the massacres roll on and the Republican Congress looks the other way for its friends in the gun manufacturing industry. The ones who provide election funding. And then tell me about the land of the free!

 China Is Laying The Foundation For The Next World Gold Standard System
 - Nathan Lewis - New World Economics
Well, it is about time there is global economic reform. The IMF is a US created NGO satellite who will ignore attempts by SDR members to have Gold backing any financial system. That would give non-US countries too much freedom and self regulation.

Brilliant ! James . . . I only had to use my on-line dictionary to define pietistic and shibboleths. I can see you're on the right track when you say " I expect to see more extreme measures against Trump to be yet attempted by the party mandarins in the two months before the convention." The news out of DC this morning is: Obama formulated/made another Executive Order on Friday. This Executive Order changes "The Transition of Power" ~ which is a team devoted to informing the NEW President on EVERYTHING ~ at The End of the Obama Regime. I don't know the contents of the new E-O, but I suspect it's an order that mandates President Trump WILL NOT BE TOLD some very important information. I'm sure an improper & incomplete Transition of Power will cripple Trump's presidency. Of course, that's The Plan. The way the stars are lining up for Trump (for those who STILL don't believe in The Hand of G*d nor miracles) all the Executive Orders in the world won't change a thing. I think the Elites are going into hiding ! !

 A Big Bank Suggests WEALTH Taxation - Jeff Nielson
 - Sprott Money - 
Good article. I almost clicked it off after the first couple a paragraphs but persevered. Worthwhile. The issue not discussed is the means used by the 0.1% to hide their assets in tax shelters all around the planet and whilst a wealth tax would be wonderful how do you collect this from the obscenely rich when you do not know what they are worth? Not as easy as first thought. The real issue is that the political system and the commercial media are controlled if not owned by the mega wealthy. At every election campaign you get the same right wing propaganda broadcast like a North Korean radio station. It is sickening tripe designed to lure the simple minded into voting for the wrong candidates, but it works. Has done so for decades. A case of 'the commi under the bed' BS. I welcome any system which taxes the rich and remind all about Warren Buffett's lament "My secretary pays more tax than I do". I have to admire a rich man who says his piece about corruption and a system designed to benefit the rich and tax the poor.
