There's been a DRAMATIC change in Trump, James. He was opposed to selling out America to Corporate Special Interests; yet Trump allowed his chosen Attorney General to sell out Taxpayer Owned Prisons ~ allowed his chosen FCC Chairman to sell out our Taxpayer Owned Internet ~ and is in the process of allowing his chosen Secretary of Education to sell out our Taxpayer Owned Schools: all these to Corporate Special Interests.

Trump was opposed to expanding the wars in the Middle East ~ yet you see his Brand New Syrian Campaign. Do us a favor James: rather than point out Trump's shortcomings, tell us what happened or Who Owns Trump ! !

 Trump and the Dying White Male Underclass  (4)
 - Phoenix Capital - Gains Pains & Capital
Go F yourself Mr. flaming bird. I suppose people a thousand years ago commenting on the Plague were despair bloggers too? I'm OK but I live in this shithole called Illinois and pretty much everything your untermenschen straw men struggle with is a feature of everyday life. They are depressed and despairing because of the destruction in their lives wrought exactly by your f'ing Federal Reserve and Ivy League schemers with their CDS and MBS, bailouts and bail-ins yada, yada, yada. They are commenting on and in despair because of what they see and what has been done to them. I would need a lot more space than your article to list all the ying yanging and retraining scams they have been screwed by too. Become a welder. Become a programmer. Become this or that and five minutes later in come hordes of Pakis taking the new jobs they just retrained to do for $20,000 per year. Your Fed Chairman emeritus Greenspan called that fuqueing "reducing the concentration of distribution." Again, just get fuqued. We have lamp posts "reserved" for you and the other assholes like you.

Answer To :kevthorne - 4/15/2017 at 1:37 PM GMT
I read from this that it is the USA that is 'a threat to the entire world'.
How many times have we heard this - 'country X is a threat to the world' - its 'leader must be 'taken out' (murdered), with many of it's people killed in the ensuing 'collateral damage' (mass murder)?
Aren't we all heart sick of this 'war'?
Nuremburg approaches - 'engaging in and promoting aggressive war' - it's a hanging offense.
Given the ever more powerful weapons being pressed into the hands of the generals by vested interests, is it not time to step back and consider if the profit from this trade is worth risking the entire World?
Easter is a time for every Christian to reflect on what has become of us.

 The Fed Has Bankrupted the US In Order to Create Another Bubble
 - Phoenix Capital - Gains Pains & Capital
I believe this bubble will pop, the big question is when. I underestimated the power of the Fed and monetary policy. I believe that during the Weimar hyperinflation stocks screamed higher since they represented a tangible asset, far superior to a rapidly depreciating currency.I don't know the ultimate fate of these newly rich investors. Will it be the same way here once the dollar loses its reserve currency status against possibly a gold backed Yuan. Any thoughts Graham?

 No, The Junior Mining Stocks Are Not About To Implode - Dave Kranzler
 - Sprott Money - 
Thank you Dave for this excellent article. I agree with your well thought out critiques that point to junior miners being just fine. Relying on that chart with a time period of less than a week is probably one of the bigger weaknesses. The conclusions drawn from this chart is more or less inconsequential especially from a longer term point of view. The junior miners have been beaten down but they are not out.

 If You Understand History and Economics, You Understand Gold  (4)
 - Egon von Greyerz - Matterhorn AM
I think if you look into recent history Russia invaded the Ukraine...guess you missed that one. On the other hand your article about the history of gold and economics shouldn't be the forum for a Trump bashing as you so ardently pursue. I think Trump has had little to do with the history of gold or fiat money. Keep the focus.

 Gold Bullion Erases $10 Bounce Despite French Election, N.Korea Risks, Imports to China Jump
 - Bullion Vault - 
I don't know how much I'd trust the listed GLD holdings. I always found GLD's structure to be a bit strange. They so famously claim that they are 100% backed but obstinately refuse to give investors access to any of the 'claimed' gold. Why? There are many profitable gold selling businesses in the world. GLD could even charge exorbitant fees for delivery of said gold but they don't for some strange reason. The frequently referenced GLD subcustodian audit loophole makes me question this fund even more. What guarantees do we have that they have not leased the gold from someone else? i.e. HSBC. Are they leasing it to someone else? How many claims are there on the gold aka hypothecation? GLD's structure seems to be deliberately vague and intentionally flawed. GLD's custodian, HSBC, with their long history of fraud certainly do not inspire confidence either. For anyone interested but have not heard about CNBC's Bob Pisani's visit to GLD's gold vault, I recommend checking it out. His visit is documented in a segment called Gold Rush: The Mother Lode. This entire segment was organized by GLD's management to prove that their gold actually exists but the gold bar held up by Mr. Pisani displayed a serial of ZJ6752. This serial did not show up on the latest bar list during that time. Cheviot Asset Management’s Ned Naylor-Leyland discovered that this "GLD" bar actually belonged to ETF Securities.

'How to prepare for War' Excellent article Chris. Thank you Sadly war looks to be inevitable between Russia and the US and this time the US will get more than it bargained for . Russia has been incredibly restrained to date ,but I doubt this will last. The US will continue with this insanity until ,as many believe ,it has now passed the point of no return between these two empires. The trash newspapers like the NYT and WP have only aided in creating a monster that cannot be put back in its box Lord help us ! because the US ain't RG

 Second-Order Consequences of Self-Driving Vehicles
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Spot on, Mish; but when I bring this up in conversation everyone thinks it's 20+ years away. Like you, I think the change will be much faster than that with a host of unforeseen consequences. Insurance for human driven transport will become exponentially expensive, driving the technology uptake at an exponential rate. It will be interesting to see what happens to real estate prices (and where!)..

 Political, Dollar, USA - Will US Dollar keep it's promise?
 - Our Forums - 
The American economy has a lot of momentum, but the unhinged trade policies for President Donald Trump could trigger a U.S. dollar collapse in 2017. At first blush, the dollar seems to enjoy a lot of momentum. Renewed growth prospects emanating from Trumpian policies and higher interest rate expectations have provided a constant bid, buoying the U.S. Dollar Index to 14-year highs in early January. We are definitely going to have a [url=https://www.lombardiletter.com/will-the-u-s-dollar-collapse-in-2017/5950/] dollar collapse [/url] like the 1980s and trust me it is going to be one of the worst of all.

 GOLD IS PROTECTION AGAINST DAMNED LIES AND WAR
 - Egon von Greyerz - Matterhorn AM
Well said Egon. Gold is indeed insurance against systemic risks as it has proven time and time again. This is one of the primary reasons why I own and continue to invest in a percentage of gold.

 Gold Prices Slip $10 After Breaking Downtrend as UK's May Seeks Brexit Mandate, N.Korea Threatens US
 - Bullion Vault - 
"That left the GLD gold ETF needing a 2017 high of 849 tonnes in bullion backing." I frequently see you make these claims on GLD's holdings but I still have not seen any verifiable evidence to support any of these claims. How reliable are GLD's holding reports? GLD does not give retail investors the right to redeem for any of its mystery physical gold holdings. This fact alone ensures the GLD shares to be nothing more than paper at the end of the day. GLD also has a glaring audit loophole in their prospectus that states they have no right to audit subcustodial gold holdings. To this day, I have not heard of a single good reason for the existence of this backdoor to the fund. Some other red flags I've stumbled upon, verified and welcome everyone else to verify for themselves: "Did anyone try calling the GLD hotline at 866▪320▪4053 in search of numerical details on GLD's insurance? The prospectus vaguely states "The Custodian maintains insurance with regard to its business on such terms and conditions as it considers appropriate which does not cover the full amount of gold held in custody." When I asked about how much of the gold was insured, the representative proceeded to act as if he didn't know and said they were just the "marketing agent" for GLD. What kind of marketing agent would not know such basic information about a product they are marketing? It seems like they are deliberately hiding information from investors." "I remember there was a highly publicized visit by CNBC's Bob Pisani to GLD's gold vault. This visit was organized by GLD's management to prove the existence of GLD's gold but the gold bar held up by Mr. Pisani had the serial number ZJ6752 which did not appear on the most recent bar list at that time. It was later discovered that this "GLD" bar was actually owned by ETF Securities."

 Chris Powell: Why invest in gold miners if they won't defend themselves?
 - Chris Powell - GATA
Chris, Great article, full of factual and well documented information about the precious metals sector. Most informed active traders within this sector, like myself, are well aware of the managed positions by the pro dollars forces that continue to keep the metals on a very tight leash. It is absurd to see the current low price levels when we live in a world so mired in debt and global chaos. When we look at the bigger picture as a reason for the supression, the deep state is still in full control of all agendas, including the USA Foreign Policy. (I tweeted Trump with deep disappointment of his actions in Syria) When the price of Gold is finally free to trade unencumbered, it will be a pivot point on which a new era of truth and hope will shine for all humanity. Best Regards to you and your readers James

 Brexit Optimism Misplaced: Time for Hardball
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Only two things count: 1) Food. Good luck with that. President Trump must be looking forward to doing business on this. UK consumers face a huge hike in living costs as 'famine prices' take effect. Anyone remember rationing? My family do. 2) Currency - Read the special opt-out clause for Sterling in the Maastricht Treaty - it expired February this year. Means join the Euro, or else.

 The parable of the cards  (8)
 - Franklin Sanders - The Money Changer
Please let me take this a step further if I may... because I see an opportunity to highlight a particular concern of mine. Let us ignore for the moment that Government and Industry are not powerless tools of the Banker. They exert considerable influence over Everyman in their own right. And by exercising these, can secure for themselves a much more favorable position than that available to Everyman. In time Government and even Industry would lie under the tree all day with Banker sipping coconut milk while Everyman collected the coconuts for everyone. Once deprived of everything, Everyman and his impoverished friends will likely not stand by idly under the coconut tree naked and watch Banker's depraved consumption of all that they once owned. As history has shown, they will rise up and take it back, and by force of numbers overcome their oppressors. And there was a time when this may have even held some sway with Banker (as well as Government and Industry). Since Everyman represents the majority of the population, they represented the majority of power. When sufficiently motivated, Everyman and his friends could take up their pitchforks and rifles and transform into an undeniable force, capable of overthrowing Banker, Government, and even Industry should the need arise. This helped Everyman to keep the others in check. But then Industry gave birth to Technology - a boon to Industry and Everyman which delighted Banker and Government no end. Government, with funding provided by Banker, consigned Industry (and regulated it) to use Technology to help mitigate the threat of Everyman, even while Everyman was basking in the joy of Technology. They made better and better weapons. After all, Banker and Government could not have their privileges undermined at any moment by hoards of adequately armed Everymen. "I like not the way that Everyman is looking at us. Government, you must force Industry to surrender his pocketknife so that we may make pointy sticks together. Tell Everyman that we need these sticks for defence in case the Island is invaded. These pointy sticks we will use to prevent Everyman from taking back his clothes and shoes. For without these assets we will have nothing to lend". And it was so. Then Banker did rejoice - doubly so, for when he realised that not only had he gained ownership of all things present and future, and ensnared Government and Industry to do his bidding.... but they had created for him Technology - a wondrous grandchild that has succeeded not only in increasing their profits but ensuring their safety and position. In time Government, Industry and Technology distracted Everyman sufficiently from even being aware that any of this is going on. When Everyman finally looks up from his iPad and sees what Banker has done it will be too late. They may take up their pitchforks and rifles once again. But this time Banker and Government need not even put down their coconut flavored cocktails or raise an eyebrow. Technology has given them the means to put down a revolution at the push of a button - literally. Drones and missiles could easily combat any uprising. A myriad of surveillance technologies could predict and undermine such an event well before it got off the ground. The controlled media would de-moralise, de-motivate and alienate its supporters. Electronic banking would easily cripple its funding. Banker and Government probably feel more comfortable than they ever have in all of history. Lucky for us they still think they need our approval... at least on the surface, for now. Ironically, the efforts of Everymen themselves, working with Technology, employed by Industry, at the whims of Government and under the control of Banker, who may ultimately be their own undoing. A tragedy to make Shakespeare envious.

 Is gold a good store of value?
 - Steve Saville - Speculative Investor
The last time I read such utter puerile nonsense was when I read an article on GOLD from Paul van Eerden..... This article is an embarrassment to to the Gold Analysts of this world. Of course when one is about to die everything around ceases to have value to YOU if you were the owner of a Picasso or Renoir ...GOLD is universal and will have a store of value forever....Note the Spanish GOLD doubloons that were found under the sea They have the value as men risk their lives to retrieve them. In brief EVEN THE MOST SAVAGE AMONG'ST US KNEW THAT GOLD HAD A STORE OF VALUE SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME .....SO WHAT THE HELL IS THIS IDIOT TRYING TO PROVE .... Steve I am ashamed of you look for something else to do rather than come on here spouting nonsense
