  Once-Peaceful Canada Turns Militaristic; Blowback Follows  (20)
 - Ron Paul - 
You're entitled to your opinion, even when it is wrong and based on things you can't and do not understand.

You can rant at DC all you want; I am neither a spokesman nor a defender of the beltway. If you'd try listening instead of hurling insults, you might have been able to come to the conclusion a long time ago.

I let up on you now, since clearly you're not handling disagreement very well. I am quite satisfied with merely seeing the state to which this has reduced you to. Toodles! (Remember that?)

"I'll put my foreign policy credentials and experience up against Ron Paul's any day of the week."

I have to say, thanks for the laugh that produced. Take a deep breath, relax and realise that you're not the be all and end all for information on the Iraq war or US foreign policy.

I do not call statements I disagree with lies, I call lies created by DC politicians and perpetuated by individuals like yourself to what they are, lies.

So we're clear, I do not believe that everything Ron Paul posts (believes) is 100% correct, I have disagreed on a few occasions but I will take his outlook and action plan over that of the knuckle heads that run DC any day. Why, simple, the man has more real life experience (has Obama and crew ever had a real job...

  The Fate of the Turtle  (21)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
A Z Facts: I see you mistake my animosity toward Straight Line Republicans as an endorsement of Straight Line Democrats. I hold both parties in equal contemp. Once every few years there's a GLARING example of Twisted Belief that really deserves to be pointed out by SOMEONE. There are already hundreds of pundits pointing out the Twisted Belief's of the Democratic Party, so there's no need for me to echo their lines.

  When Central Banks Re-build Silver Reserves  (13)
 - Charleston Voice - 
As I understand it (hopefully someone can provide more details) the coins mentioned are minted by the government of the country they are issued in and as such carry a "dollar" value meaning they are money according to the same government. Now you would have to be a real fool to take a 1oz American Eagle gold coin and buy something that costs $50 with it but the point is the coin is considered legal tender just as a $50 bill is legal tender. Bars are exactly that, gold or silver bars not minted by a government to be used as legal tender. Not all coins, think of the Buffalo gold and silver coins, are legal tender.

So if I am incorrect and someone knows the specifics please do share.

Answer To :flup - 11/3/2014 at 11:10 AM GMT
Yeah, I have the same question.

Can't be for Executive Order 6102 worries because coins, bars and certificates were all taken in 1933.

Perhaps because, "bullion coins, "junk" pre-1964 US coins, circulated silver dollars" are all, currently, not reportable for tax purposes as they are legal tender. Bars, on the other hand...

  Will World Governments Confiscate Gold?  (9)
 - Dan Popescu - GoldBroker
What you need to appreciate 1476 AD is that unlike 1935 everything is electronic nowadays. So not hard for the government to find anybody who has bought gold in the past 20 years. So do you really believe that a country which realises that it is on the wrong side of a currency rout is not going to play catch-up any way it can? It brings to mind a story I read in a Denver paper about a guy who claimed he had thrown his gold into a avoid paying out in a marriage break-up. I know where I'll be throwing mine rather than give it to the government I guess!

Answer To :1476 AD - 11/10/2014 at 7:04 PM GMT
It is true that a law was passed to compel American citizens to turn in their gold; however according to actual government reports the percentage of private gold turned in was only approximately 20%. If, as you say, the balance held by the US government was 8998 tonnes in 1935 after the confiscation and 6358 tonnes before the law was passed, then the amount acquired as a result of the confiscation was 2640 tonnes. Following along, this would leave American citizens holding 8560 tonnes. Additionally they have acquired an enormous amount since legalization. How much is anybody's guess, but my own after fifty years of study of gold and it's markets is that they have acquired approximately one third an ounce per person in the country or about 3500 tonnes. If this is...

  The Fall in International Reserve Assets  (6)
 - Hugo Salinas Price -
I presume you are mostly counting dollars and Treasury bonds and not gold as you mentioned. The world is de-dollarizing and we should start seeing more reserves converted to gold. Also there is a trend to directly trade bi-laterally and skip paying the gringo middleman. This would make the need to keep dollars or any reserve less as a direct exchange rate would facilitate trade without the need for a reserve fund.

This very good.
To get simple control on commodity price is to buying short future.
Produce are buying paper and ask deliver metals which is not available and price is going up like crazy.
Supply is short and demand is high.If producer will buy entirely gold and silver from Comex what will be left.
The future contracts should work for producers not for speculators.

  Crony Capitalism Tribute; Mafia Dons vs. Politicians; Who Really Won the Election?
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
I get this from John Stosell's book, "No, They Can't"...

Businesses are greedy. Okay, fair enough. But the more power you give to Government, the more businesses will lobby the government in order to get their way. You can boycott a business, and convince others to do the same. Can the same be said about the Government?

Personally I've been trying to get people to boycott the incredibly centralized power and control center called the government, maybe not entirely but at least to a certain degree, by buying something that governments hate these days but cannot seem to completely eradicate... gold and silver. I have found it's not easy. People like government. They believe government is good, government is great, to the point that it needs to be fund...

  The War on Terror  (4)
 - Michael S. Rozeff - Lew Rockwell
The issue on why the US keeps attacking sovereign nations really boils down to one thing and that one thing is easy to identify. What is it, follow the money to find it. Who benefits from all this warring? The mega corporations who manufacture the weaponry, the ones who keep lobbying politicians and lining the pockets of the willing politicians.

These corporations are so greedy that human life is nothing more than a way to earn extra bucks. The more people there are that will fight, the more bullets and bombs they have to produce to kill the fighters with. The more people that are killed in the endless war on terror = more profit for these guys.

If only there were a handful of politicians that had the back bone to say no to the mega corps our kids...

  The Reinvention of Alan Greenspan  (6)
 - Michael J. Kosares - USAGold
Greenspan is a fraud.
HE is a very intelligent person who knows from the beginning how inflation works and what happen when currency is not backed by real value (gold). In the 60's, he testify before Congress about what happen to fiat currency. He said fiat currency will steal wealth to everybody. It's on youtube

This is the same Greenspan who lowered the interest rate and create the bubble of 2007-2008. He knew what he was doing. He was killing the currency and stealing wealth to everybody.

I have no respect for this guy. Hope he will be bury in a public cemetery so I can do a pilgrimage with my kids and shit on his grave. I swear.

(2 down rate for my comment ?!?! who loves Greenspan on this site ? lol Its a theft.)

OMG! Almost daily throughout 2014 we've been reminded by all the wisest gold forecasters that there is an imminent trigger that will cause the stock markets to crash.
Well it's not happened, and the latest predictions, as in this article, is that nothing is likely to happen until 2015. So don't hold your breath guys. There's always another year, and gold might just be the relict the bankers say it is. Is that black swan event only a distant mirage?

  Japan's Last Stand
 - Michael Pento - Delta Global Advisors
I think there is more to the story than meets the eye. Consider this:
"In addition to this, Japan's state pension fund (the GPIF), intends to dump massive amounts of Japanese government bonds (JCB's) and to double its investment in domestic and international stocks. "

The pension system is converting assets in JCB to equities.
If the businesses survive, then mayhaps the investment has greater potential to retain some value than what the GPIF considered the JCB will retain.
If you know you are going belly-up, then you shift assets to retain some value.

It is awful easy to assume these death throw type decisions by the PTB are completely reactionary.
What if all the PTB, world-wide, know this game is about over?
Wouldn't you try t...

  Gold: Bull Flag In Play
 - Stewart Thomson - Graceland Update
Gold broke 1200 this morning for a while and looked like it was on the rise. That must have scared the hell out of someone because within a matter of a few minutes it dropped back down $15 us, back below 1200. A couple/few months ago gold and silver were on the rise and it seemed obvious to me that someone dumped a bunch of both in to the market to drive the prices back down. It took a little effort on someone's part but when it finally worked, the bottom dropped out of both to the lowest I've seen in several years. That's just how it looked to me.

  Swiss Gold Poll Likely Tighter Than Polls Suggest
 - Mark O'Byrne -
Thing is, there's something really wrong with all these "close elections": the exit polls don't line up. That's why they stopped doing them for presidential elections in the US, and why Scotland is "a bit" upset that their independence vote failed. I strongly suspect that data is being manipulated so that the predicted outcome is "too close to call"...then, when, sho' 'nuff, the Powers That Be win the election, they can say, "hey, it was close, we gave you an election, now SHUT UP."

So, there's my prediction: close vote, but the Swiss Referendum will fail.
