 Worse Than Hitler  (15)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
It appears there is no such thing as an honest popular vote. Diebold and the electronic counters seems to have taken care of that several presidential elections ago. Whether it has been corrected or states are now requiring paper ballots is a mystery to me...main stream media appears to be mum on the subject. Several independent investigations in the past that proved corruption went nowhere and just withered away... in my estimation. This is memory from the past....correct me if wrong.

 The myth of gold price manipulation  (5)
 - Clif Droke - 
I have little doubt that gold will reach $10,000/oz in my lifetime. When it happens, I have little doubt that $10,000 will buy a decent suit.

Small case marxists here are no better to lead a society than in the EU or the old USSR. Small case marxists such as this twit author, only proscribe MOAR pure Marxism to lean forward to a more equal dystopia. I revile him, his professed Party, and the other half, the GOProgs.

 Iran Agreement Boosts Peace, Defeats Neocons  (7)
 - Ron Paul - 
A US Naval vessel shot down an Iranian Passenger Jet with 300 passengers, over the Persian Gulf on the 3rd July 1988, they mistook it for a Fighter Plane. Any spotter can mistake an Airbus for a Fighter jet - see below!
A year ago most certainly a military jet out of Kiev shot down MH17 out of Amsterdam with 300 passengers over Western Ukraine, to date the Black Box details are still withheld by the western allies. This 'error' enabled the US to demand sanctions on Russia and in consequence the crash is not worthy of detailed investigation with no one showing one jot of interest. I can only assume the 300 families of the dead passengers have been financially rewarded in exchange for their silence.
As a footnote the Black Boxes were returned to the UK over a ...

How about the US invading Afghanistan in 2001, Iraq in 2003 ... leading to the current unrest in the middle east while supporting the 'Saudi's' ...

Iran has as much right to look after it own interests as the US .... which does not make either right from a moral standpoint: I mention - before you start accusing me of being an Iranian troll.

 Is the gold price manipulated?  (3)
 - Clif Droke - 
This article is a joke. Please stop writing baseless garbage. There is enough real evidence of the things you're still calling conspiracy. GATA have countless fact based articles, the COT reports and many other avenues to really see what's going on. This article has no fact and instead continues to harp on about the conspiracy theorists. Geez go dig your grave.

 - Steve Saville - Speculative Investor
This guy says that bullion banks "tend to be agnostic with regard to the price trend"... right. that is why the dump massive amounts in the off hours where the max damage to PRICE would occur... think anyone would do such a thing to maximize their profit???

 China’s Gold Reserves Updated: Surprised?
 - Dan Popescu - GoldBroker
Count me among those who feel that including gold as part of foreign reserves to be utter nonsense.
Gold has no counter-party risk.
Foreign currency always incurs risk.

Next comparing the percentage of gold holdings to the percentage of foreign currency holdings is a silly notion at best.

Consider a country like Greece.
Greece supposedly has 112.5 tonnes of gold.
Greek foreign reserves are about 5.1 billion Euros. (Billion is in US figures 1,000,000,000)
With gold at about 32,000 Euros/kilogram we see Greece holds 3.6 billion Euros in gold.
3.6/5.1 X 100 = 70.5% in gold/foreign currency ratio.

Now consider the USA where gold/foreign currency reserves are at 74.2%.
Once again we can see that the USA has few forei...

 The Spectacle So Far  (10)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
The fan has been struck by a lot of "stuff." Watch out for the final act which many have not anticipated. The Austrian School's flucht in die sachwerte or "escape to things of value" leading to a "crack-up boom" (katastrophenhaus) may focus itself on a run to the tallest midget. The US Dollar, GOLD, and the US equity market may be the target of foreign funds seeking refuge or the possibility of salvaging at least some value. I would not be shocked to see a blowoff top with the DOW reaching the high 20,000's fueled by refugee funds over the next year or so. Interesting times to say the least.

 Gold Miners? $1200-Cost Fallacy
 - Adam Hamilton - Zealllc
Thanks for pointing out what should be obvious to the participants in the gold market.

The WGC invention of the new AISC should have raised red flags.
One need only look back 10 years and run a comparison between costs and revenue then to the same now to see that the WGC numbers were of doubtful accuracy at best.
But people want to believe in all sorts of nonsense.
I would tender the notion that it provides a somewhat credible cover story for why the believer is such a poor investor.

Nothing happens without a reason.
So always look behind the curtain.
Cui bono?

 Why The PM Sector Is Now A Contrarian?s Dream  (3)
 - Clive Maund - 
I do not agree with this article. TPTB have pushed down metals so hard that most miners are debt laden to the point of exhaustion. Sure, a few will win in any runup, but not many. Most are poorly managed and cash-poor with few funding choices. It is just too late, absent a huge (like 70%) rally in metals - ain't gonna happen soon. A lot of these miners are going to have a chapter 11. Then their stock price goes to nothing. Then they are a deal, perhaps, but the banks will fold them into their asset base for pennies to get the in-earth treasure at a fraction of value.

It's not hard to see their game, if you look.

 Another Monday, Another Batch Of Brutal Numbers
 - John Rubino - Dollar Collapse
Yup ...Japan was a hot number 20-30 (?) years ago. Buying prime property here in the states , acquiring major manufacturing, innovative in auto manufacturing, bright young talent in the electronic field and the properties in Japan shot to the moon. Now it appears that major wrinkles have formed and the body is heavily sagging. Now it appears that her vengeance is showing spitting out Fukushima upon us whether by accident or by design of her and others. After all Japan could have just been pimping for major players. Sort of reminds me of Bob Dylan's " Rolling Stone"

 Calls Of A Silver Shortage Often Misleading

The coin blank theory doesn't explain why Perth currently ( 18/8/2015 ) has NO 10 ounce or 1 Kg Silver bars available
or WHY the RCM and American mints have restrictions on respective 1 ounce silver coins and the apparent Shortage of LBMA 1,000 ounce Bullion bars

Interesting Hugo, Your graph shows that the hidden and real gold price since 2008 is even higher than the all time high price of 1980. This just shows how much debasing has occurred since 2008 and how the price has been suppressed to hide it.

 Keeping the Bubble-Boom Going
 - Thorsten Polleit - 
"The sooner the artificial boom comes to an end, the sooner the recession-depression sets in, which is the inevitable process of adjusting the economy and allowing an economically sound recovery to begin."

Those of us who have seen this coming, have been warning about it for so long, and have been preparing best we can, have grown accustomed to hearing ourselves say things like this: "the inevitable process of adjusting the economy." But I think by now, any time we do, we should also be reminding the reader of just what that might look like, esp. what anyone trying to prepare for this inevitability should be expecting, even though we certainly can't know all that might occur. The familiar, "be careful what you wish for" might easily be extended to "be care...

 Wilkerson: Who Makes US Foreign Policy
 - Jesse - Le Cafe Américain
And just how many factories do the poor build?
How many products do the poor bring to market?
How much tax revenues do the poor pay?
None is the correct answer to all of the above.

FDR was a national socialist.
I contend that the Democrats are socialists and the Republicans are fascists.
It would appear that nothing really changes except the names.

Why would any rational operator cede control of its wealth and wealth generating capacity to CNPs and naugys.
CNP: curious non-producers.
naugy: Those who ride the Naugahyde aka managers with no chips in the game.

The concept of helping the poor is just a smoke screen for organizing the poor to gain votes so another batch of dirt-bags can seize power.

 Baby boomer bugs to bust bullion?  (3)
 - Bron Suchecki - Perth Mint
I would think that boomers who own gold represent a very small percent of the overall gold holdings in the world and what they do with it won't matter that much; and most will leave their gold to the next generation anyway. If gold ever achieves a high value it will be because the large institutional holders see to it that it once more becomes a means of balancing accounts between large and distant trading organizations. Small holders toady simply wishing to participate in such a new higher re-valuation of gold as a hedge against the collapse of our current Debt-Money-Monopoly system. As long as the threat of that collapse exists, most gold will be held in strong hands regardless of which generation they belong.

 Cash-strapped Venezuela may sell gold, Citigroup says
 - Chris Powell - GATA
Pure speculation by Citigroup and the trotted out by Bloomberg.
Then foisted on more readers by GATA.

Where is the evidence?
Probable default by Venezuela is NOT evidence.
As the Bloomberg article points out, banks won't be willing to accept gold held in Caracas as collateral.
Perhaps GATA, Bloomberg and Citigroup don't understand the reason that Venezuela repatriated their gold.

If it looked like you might default on a debt to those who financed you profligate lifestyle, would you leave your assets where they could be easily seized?
The bankruptcy laws are meaningless when it comes to the choice between eating and satisfying a debt.
Now consider this on a country-wide basis and the socioeconomic pressures faced by the ru...

 The Fed Talks And The Market Tanks. That's Different
