 The Road To War With Russia  (4)
 - Chris Martenson - 
The people of Crimea has a right to vote for self determination. The world knows who's lying and who's the bad guy. Once bitten twice shy is an understatement. The world has been ' bitten' 3 times and no longer shy about telling the propaganda press off. There's no truth nor trust amongst world powers. It's just national interests and any amount of humanist debate is not going to change it. It's a fractious and precarious world now. It's being realigned amongst those with "common" agendas and economic interests.

 Uncensored: Shocking Graphic Video: Islamic Terrorists Kill Paris Cop, 11 Others In Muhammad Revenge Raid
 - Mac Slavo - ShtfPlan
I'm not going to say this was not staged, because I know Govts, especially mine (U.S.) have pulled off a few large false flag events to further their agendas just recently. I do know that even if this AK were firing blanks they would have to be very careful not to injure the policeman anyway. Blanks propel hot gasses, unburned powder and cardboard/wadding material at high velocities, possibly enough to be deadly within a few feet of the rifle muzzle. So a point blank shot to the head with even a blank cartridge would be quite serious. I also know what you mean about the missing blood though. It is very strange. False flag....Possibly a good call on your part?

"weapon in the heads of a law abiding citizen" I understand you meant "hands" Mac, perhaps you were still thinking about that brutal shot point blank to the head of that policeman. Sickening indeed. My question, having been acquainted with firearm use since i was old enough to demonstrate responsibility to my father, is, where is the blood ? I am not familiar with modern auto loading weapons, but was that AK recoil-less ?
I have been out many times with professional kangaroo shooters and i can tell you first hand what happens to a head when impacted by a high velocity .22 caliber. It's messy, very messy. Instantly. The AK is 30 cal. right ?
A professional roo shooter might shoot 100 in a night, depending on the season and country. I got sick of all the blo...

 Reflections on the effects of War as compared to the effects of Fiat Money  (54)
 - Hugo Salinas Price -
According to, the average wage for Chinese industrial workers is CNY46,431 or about USD7480 per annum. The unfortunate Foxconn polishers (hardly "technicians") you cite would thus have to work a 100-hour week to get a tenth of this average. The technician I was referring to would be at the skilled end of the industrial workforce, earning above-average pay (say $10,000 p.a.) and monitoring automated plant. See, for example, this article from last year (which incidentally mentions the appalling Foxconn):
This kind of equipment was not available 30 years ago, and produces massively more than what American (or any other) workers could in those days. Let us hope that the ...

A two year old article and I still got pissed off at dumb comments!!!
" A Chinese technician strolling up and down an automated production line now produces as much as a hundred American workers did sweating over their hand-operated machines 30 years ago."
One example is FOXCONN in china has a plant with 100,000 workers one job for hundreds and hundreds of those workers is hand polishing screens for Iphones. The pay is a WHOPPING US .15 cents an hour it used to be .10 but since the workers were killing themselves they gave them a raise. That is just one example of the factory employment opportunities for their 1+ billion population. Almost every electronic device produced by them for world consumption is hand assembled, that's your Chi...

 Jim Rickards: Gold price manipulation is now a global effort to appease China
 - Chris Powell - GATA
If the intent of the manipulation is to get more gold into China and it is imperative to accomplish this forthwith then why do not the world's central bankers aggregate their gold holdings and distrubute their gold where they deem it necessary. Why all the subterfuge and time wasted?
This suggests to me there are other forces and intentions.

 The Broken Template  (9)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
The USA is way above average in two commercially viable products - self-deception and damage. Corporate America and the US Government have been working very diligently and have been enthusiastically creative concerning the long range prospects of the F-35 fighter plane. $One trillion so far and we've all had so much fun imagining all those potential startups which could have sprouted from a fraction of that money. A prototypical meaning for waste and damage. I think we all know what the 'F' stands for.

 Gold and silver currency - World Gold Production Statistics by Country
 - Our Forums - 
Although gold production can be an important source of a nation's income stream, it is relative to each nation's economy and its population base.

As an example consider US production of 227 tonnes.
This is roughly 6 million ounces and at $1200 in USD per ounce, it totals roughly $7.2 billion.
Current estimates of the 2014 GDP for the USA is about $17.5 trillion*.
Works out to about 0.0004%.

In developing countries, the income stream can be a sizable contribution. Emphasis on "can".
Quite often the miner is a multi-national with most of the shareholders outside the country being mined.
Royalties and mayhaps a capital stake ROI in the mine once again "can" be considerable, but history supports this income stream and its utilit...

J. . . . . I was going to vote a down on the Buried Assets claim ~ but ~ I got to thinking that I have NO idea if those aircraft carriers are buried or not. If you could tell me where I can find one of those aircraft carriers, or any other wealth that the government has converted to a buried asset, I'll give you a Thumbs Up !

Answer To :J. - 1/13/2015 at 9:16 PM GMT
You state that the, "orgy or wealth is coming to an end." However, I have a question. When you make enough money to buy a dozen nuclear powered air craft carriers each and every year, for over 30 years, what do you do with all that wealth? Answer: you bury it. As you remove one asset from under the ground, you convert the surplus wealth into another durable form, and you bury it for the future.

The party is only just getting started.

 Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Gold Makes a Move to Break Out

I simply tied a string to my PMs with a bell attached, so if they get "feisty" and try to "break out", I will hear the bell jingle before they hit the door.

"Gold Makes a Move to Break Out "
"We will have to see how gold follows through ... ,"
"Silver moved higher as well, but was not showing the type of feistiness that we would expect ... ,"
"It was nice to see gold take out the 100 DMA ... ,"

I ran to check my stacks.
Real concern. -8°C and 30cm of snow. Days are still real short up here at 62°N.
If they make it to the door, I'll have to put batteries in the metal detector and chase after them. Where's my headlamp?
Nothing so far, but I installed a 10GHz motion detector just in case my PMs got, shall we say, feisty?
Mayhaps my PMs are just resting up.
Lotta folks say you can't trust them PMs to remain stable like our currency.

No, not gonna ding you tonight.

 Grand Experiment Failure; Bankers Prefer Bubbles; Europe is not USA; Final Epitaph
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
About 2 percent of Americans get paid the minimum wage. Of that group, by the way, less than .3 of 1 percent of Americans are both under the line of poverty and on minimum wage. So it's a lot of young people. About 50 percent of them are between 16 and 24 years old. For a lot of them, it's a part-time job.

Mish says "There will be a trend reversal in the US back towards the norm on savings" and "The savings rate in the US has only one way to go and that is up."

And what norm might that be? How about the present 4.4 percent. More and more retirees spending their savings.
Where are the jobs going to come from to boost savings? Not McDonalds.

Looks like you can rule out sooner to me.

 Swiss Peg Removal: Did Anyone Win?
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
I would tender the argument that it is far too early to think about winners.
Admittedly I have avoided the FX market, but I do have questions that will be answered in the fullness of time.
However I don't wanna wait, so here goes.

As many folks have found out, not all debts are settled just because the item was repossessed or the keys returned to the bank.
There is an ugly little clause in many contracts that allows for deficiency judgements by the courts.
Effectively the holder of the paper comes back with a monetary claim against the debtor for the amount of money value that is the difference between owed and realized.
My question is, "In the FX market, do the contracts allow for deficiency judgements against the gamblers who ...

Are you suggesting it is far better to take the nominal profit, pay the taxes and wallow in worthless currency ala Scrooge McDuck?

Gold prices for the moment seem to be rallying; however, this could just be falsely backed by market fear. Current market turbulence, in combination with the possibility of the Syriza party winning the Greek elections this month, are contributing to these hesitant increases in the price of gold.

The article below expands on this and shares the global concern behind the Syriza parties reversal of economic policy. Should we be concerned with the Syriza party winning the Greek elections?

 Chinese gold demand and SGE withdrawals: the role of leasing and inventory changes
 - Bron Suchecki - Perth Mint
Yes, but your argument works both ways. Suppose that retail demand slackens, and the jeweller decides to let inventory run down. He doesn't buy his 100 oz for a month or so. Then wholesale demand underestimates retail demand (which is still continuing, albeit at a somewhat slower rate). In the long run, the error averages to zero. The only way to get a really accurate measure of retail demand is to measure it directly, which may be difficult. Anyway, wholesale demand isn't a bad proxy for retail demand. The former has a predictive element, which tends to smooth it. Retailers' predictions will sometimes be wrong, but they are more likely to be right than those by analysts who do not meet the end buyers.

 The $100 Trillion Reason Why Central Banks Are Terrified of Debt Deflation

There are some relevant facts to know about Japan that should clear up a LOT of this mystery. At the end of World War Two; Japan gave a COMPLETE and UNCONDITIONAL Surrender.

Does anyone really think the Japanese would destroy their own economy in the way this has all gone down ? Deception 1.0

On the other side of the coin: those in complete control of Japan's economy have managed to "milk this situation" for thirty years ! !
