 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?

 Gold & Silver Market Morning  (3)
 - 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.

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 !

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 !

 Muslim terrorism, the left and the Sydney ...  (6)
 - Gerard Jackson - 
All please understand this person was a Muslim,that was his believe! His character was that of a criminal as was shown by his action on the day and previously.He was just hiding behind the Muslim faith for his own benefit and gain, he was looking at a long jail term for charges pending and I assume his action on the day were to try and gain some advantage of the justice system to his benefit.

Of more concern is that raids have taken place in the last 24 hours that related to the plan public murder of people in Martin Place and yes it's by people of the Muslim faith.

I believe that these people and the families should be deported at the time of finding the guilty, you ask why there families because they would know of the plan to carry this out. It se...

Answer To :mattellery - 12/16/2014 at 11:18 AM GMT
I'm actually sorry I read this article. I'm an Australian and watched this terrible event unfold live. Everybody knew he was a Muslim, since he was forcing his hostages to hold up a flag stating that Allah and Mohammad are the only ones worth praying to. Your prejudiced rhetoric doesn't belong on our shores, and it most certainly won't be tolerated by any true Australian. Oz is a nation of tolerance and friendship, albeit one that still has a lot of work to do.

If this man wasn't a Muslim it would have been described as a hostage situation. Only because he was of Muslim faith is anybody calling this a terrorist act. I'd say that every hostage situation is a terrorist act since the people involved would be terrified. I can think of about 10 "hostage ...

 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...

 41 Facts about Central Banks no longer taught in US schools  (23)
 - 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.

 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.

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.

 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 ...

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.

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.

 The Price of Everything and the Value of Nothing
 - Jeffrey Lewis - 
Debt Jubilee? Not gonna happen.
1. All collateral will be seized before any debate on debt forgiveness happens.
2. All pension plans will be nationalized under the guise of securing the pensioner's financial safety.

Now if we consider the Jubilee of the Old Testament, it only came the year after the seventh Sabbatic year aka every 50 years.
Debts were forgiven the Sabbatic year (every 7 years).
Between Sabbatic years, the debtor, their wife and children could be seized as slaves.
Keep in mind this needed the force of Mosaic Law to enforce compliance amongst the Jewish sector.
Non-Jews (goyim) were not covered by Mosaic Law.
Can we spell "indentured servitude"?

 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.

 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.

 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.

 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.
