 Downtrend Resuming
 - Warren Bevan - Precious Metals Stock Review
Yeah, this was more or less a joke considering what's been going on lately. It just seemed like the bottom has fallen out of both. Could the people calling for $10 silver and $8 or $900 gold be right? Even if they are, it would be one of the dumbest times ever to get out. Nope, I will be stubborn and hold mine 'till the very end. Funny thing is, even if prices went up I still wouldn't turn loose of what little I have.

 When Central Banks Re-build Silver Reserves  (14)
 - Charleston Voice - 
I'm pretty sure this isn't this article's reason, but one reason I feel that buying U.S. silver eagles (and junk silver) is probably the best, is because of all the recent silver counterfeiting. The Feds have historically gotten pretty mad when people try to counterfeit it's "money", even if it is in reality, just paper. So the same must apply for silver eagles? I have a mix of Eagles and generic rounds.......and even a few smaller bars. But with all the fake silver that's been flooding the market recently, I feel like there is a little bit of protection from the Feds when it comes to "Legal Tender", one dollar eagles. I may be completely wrong. Does anyone know if there would be anything to this?

Just one hint. Maybe you will be the next Orson Welles of the news about financial panic if instead of using the name of Chavez you had used the one of the actual president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro. For the rest of your article, congratulations.

 Swiss Gold Poll Likely Tighter Than Polls Suggest
 - Mark O'Byrne - gold.ie
Scaremongering usually works with cowards that have something to loose, or individuals geometrically somewhere in-between. This is why New World Order fails in Afghanistan, Gaza, Pakistan, "Caliphate" and Iceland. By its nature it created desperate people in its very heartlands and that's how it will fail, after protracted, bloody, messy revolutions and counterrevolutions. But that will not start in Switzerland, who is one of the main beneficiaries of this Hell the beasts are turning this World into.

 A Silver Coin that is Money To Calm the National Tantrum in Mexico  (3)
 - Hugo Salinas Price - Plata.com
It's obvious you're on the right track here Hugo. I really admire your insight on how the government of Mexico treats the Mexican people, and your brilliant Silver Coin idea that would put some worth back in the lives of those same people. For a brief moment, there was WHAT APPEARED TO BE a rising of The Mexican People when they were getting UNITED. They were getting united by the killing of 41 college students who were murdered by some corrupt government officials. (The corrupt government officials had hired a Drug Lord and his men to kill the students.) The common people were saying "We have had ENOUGH ! We are going to take back our homeland and BE FREE once more !

Here, around America, we could see the Re-Taking of Mexico by Mexican Citizens becoming a...

The "elites" have decided to go on a " war mode.". No amount of logic or common sense will prevail until they have annihilate their perceived "enemies" or self destruct "themselves" in the process. Common sense is not that common.

 Why Wall Street and Governments Hate Gold  (7)
 - Michael Pento - Delta Global Advisors
Ah yes, I've seen this comment on marketwatch.com. Probably the most ridiculous and blatant lie about gold I've ever seen. To call gold fiat is either to be completely ignorant of what fiat is, or to be deliberately lying to people. I suggest it's the latter, as I find it unlikely that Citi's Chief economist would be THAT ignorant, he has to be lying on purpose.

 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.

 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 ...

 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.

Answer To :Gypsy - 12/17/2014 at 4:10 PM GMT
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 !

 Muslim terrorism, the left and the Sydney ...  (4)
 - 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 ...

 Why I Quit
 - Andy Sutton - 
I feel for you and appreciate your courage. Being placed in an unwinnable situation is never pleasant. Recognizing and acknowledging one's situation at least allows logical action to be taken. Better to regroup and live to fight another day. Advisors such as yourself are like coaches trying to run their team against crooked referees and league officials. It doesn't matter how good you or your players are, the outcome will be determined by those in control who have rigged the system for their own ends. Under such a circumstance I would tell the team, "if you want to play go ahead but don't expect to be rewarded for your effort. In fact you may be penalized, fined or otherwise punished for an outstanding performance." Good luck with that.

 Gold Market Update
 - Clive Maund - 
1. Charts only tell you what already happened.
2. Charts can tell you what is possible, but never probable.
3. Charts more often than not only reflect the technicals aka what the other fools did.
4. Read #3 again and realize that many analysts think they are psychology experts.
5. Technicals are always about psychology.
6. The technical analysts aren't qualified or licensed to practice psychology.

Until such time as time machines become available, charts are history. Chartists are historians.

I'll share a secret with you. In the last 10 years, I've never booked a loss.
But how???
If you stick with fundamentals and accept the concept of "give it time", the market always responds favorably.

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.

 Gold Price chart showing big drop before rise during Weimar hyperinflationary event
 - Bill Downey - Commodity Trader
The article ludicrously misinterprets the chart. What the chart shows is the market price of German Aktien, namely shares in British or stocks in American English, in terms of gold, during the hyperinflationary period of Germany in the early 1920s. Measured in terms of real money (i.e. gold), German shares did become very cheap during that period, and then recovered sharply, as shown by the chart. The chart has nothing to do with the "price" of gold in any currency.

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.

 Spare dollars  (5)

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.

 Regulation is Newspeak
 - Jeffrey Lewis - 
There is not a single federal department or agency that isn't infused not just with corporate figures...such as Obama's latest Department of Commerce Secretary, but even such arcane organizations such as the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, where you'll find its senior appointees all former members of leftist non profits. Don't know why the Author and others always mention Cheney, when there are hundreds of similarly situated. Go look at the EPA's leadership. We have more to fear from the non profit NGO's embedded into these agencies than a administrator appointee who'll be gone in a couple of years through the revolving door.

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.

 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...

 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...
