P.S. I forgot to spend a moment mentioning "personal experience". As all those older Members know (who originally spotted me on Seeking Alpha); I have more "combat experience" in fighting Trolls (and kicking their butts) than likely any writer on the 'net.

Jeff Nielson replied to the topic Re: What ISIS Really Wants in the forums.
Debsyl, this is a ridiculously long "piece" (of whatever), so I just skimmed through it. However, that was enough to convince me that this is nothing but propaganda disinformation -- for two reasons.

1) In page after page of (supposed) "detailed history" of ISIS there is no mention of this:

"We helped build ISIS"
Retired Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney
scgnews.com/the-covert-origins-of-isis

2) Instead, this so-called "journalist" writes this:

The United States and its allies have reacted to the Islamic State belatedly and in an apparent daze.

Since when has the U.S. -- which SPIES on everything, and OVER-REACTS to most things -- ever responded in a "dazed" and "belated" manner. I'll tell you when the last time was: 9/11.

When you see these Liars say something which is (a) ridiculous, and (b) straight out of the "9/11 Play-book" our B.S. alarms should start going off at maximum decibels. You may find a lot of this "religious fanatics" talk to be particularly attractive/believable, but as I've pointed out before, you can't forget that much of that is attributable to a THOUSAND YEARS of anti-Muslim brainwashing, dating back literally to the Crusades.

Here is the question which any/every rational Christian must ask themselves before accepting any of this "jihadist" bullshit. IF the great "Muslim threat" are these supposed "jihadist fanatics"; then why has the U.S. devoted MOST of its war-and-sabotage to destroying EVERY SECULAR MUSLIM REGIME in the Middle East and Africa???



And here's another point to ponder; with the U.S. DESTROYING all of the moderate, secular regimes in that part of the world (while propping-up ultra-extremist regimes like Saudi Arabia); WHAT'S LEFT? Nothing but (supposed) "radical" Boogeymen -- precisely what the Axis of Evil wants: Boogeyman to use their war-machines against, Boogeyman to supposedly justify all their new, fascist laws.

The Axis of Evil DESTROYS secular regimes. It CREATES and SUPPORTS extremist regimes and extremist groups (so it can either use them, or destroy them, or use them and then destroy them). That's what the last (in particular) 25 years of history broadcasts loud and clear. If you can't make this important distinction, then you're living inside the Wonderland Matrix.

Jeff Nielson replied to the topic Re: This will put a smile on your face. in the forums.
I had a hard time deciding whether to file this one under "Notable Quotes" or "This Will Put A Smile On Your Face", but decided in the end that since the Notable Quotes section tends to be more serious that I would put this here.

While "others" may have a different perspective on the world; this is how things look to a large percentage of us creatures (namely men and dogs - lol):

Jeff Nielson created a new topic Buffett cash-hoard now at $62 BILLION in the forums.
The U.S. Ponzi-scheme economy continues stumbling toward the Next Crash (scheduled for shortly before the 2016 election), and Warren Buffett continues hoarding more and more $billions.

As I noted before; Buffett's cash-hoard "exceeds the GDP of most nations". To be specific; out of more than 200 sovereign entities, Buffett's $62 billion cash-hoard would rank him just above the Dominican Republic (#71) and below Libya (#70). In short; Buffett's cash-board now exceeds the GDP of roughly 2/3 of the world's nations.



We're told (by the liars of Reuters) that this is more than triple the $20 cash-hoard which Buffett supposedly "likes" to hold, but this could be simply more Revisionism from the liars. But even if we accept the liar's assertions at face-value; we're still faced with this massive contradiction.

1) On the one hand; we have the Fed liars and the U.S. government liars telling us that (supposedly) the U.S. economy is "growing" at the fastest rate in more than a decade -- with absolutely no indication that the Never-Ending Recovery will ever end, despite the fact it is now (supposedly) three times as long as any normal "recovery".

2) On the other hand; we have Warren Buffett who is supposedly the world's "most-savvy investor". In reality, of course, Buffett the Vampire-Layer is a Wall Street Shill, and is rewarded for his loyalty by being TOLD by the banksters (in advance) which companies will be "winners" and which will be "losers".

Obviously, with Buffett hoarding at least three times as much funny-money as he (supposedly) likes to hoard; his bankster buddies have delivered a very simple message to him: KA-BOOM!

And then after KA-BOOM!, after the U.S.'s Ponzi-scheme markets implode down toward something resembling reality; 80-something Warren Buffett will SPEND his $60+ billions buying-up companies at pennies-on-the-dollar -- and making the greatest, single haul in his entire career as a Vampire-Layer.

As previously noted; with the Next Crash not slated for at least another year, who knows how large Buffett's cash-hoard will be by then...???



Buffett Sits on $50 Billion Cash-Hoard, Waiting for Bubbles to Pop

The Next Crash in 2016
The U.S. Economy is Dead

P.S. Note that the data on Buffett's cash-hoard is (strangely) 4 months old, meaning Buffett's cash-hoard TODAY could already be greater than $70 BILLION.

...Berkshire ended September with $62 billion in cash, well above the $20 billion cash cushion Buffett likes. That leaves more than $40 billion to go shopping.

DayOwl created a new topic How to Spot and Counter Internet Trolls in the forums.
I know trolls aren't much of a problem here, but if members are anything like me, they peruse a lot of other sites where trolls lurk.

It's best to go to the source article because it provides lots of links.

Here is an excerpt:

www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/02/trolls-g...rnet-disruption.html

The Troll’s Guide to Internet Disruption
Posted on February 23, 2015 by WashingtonsBlog
The 15 Rules of Web Disruption

David Martin’s Thirteen Rules for Truth Suppression, H. Michael Sweeney’s 25 Rules of Disinformation (and now Brandon Smith’s Disinformation: How It Works) are classic lessons on how to spot disruption and disinformation tactics.

We’ve seen a number of tactics come and go over the years. Here are the ones we see a lot of currently.

1. Start a partisan divide-and-conquer fight or otherwise push emotional buttons to sow discord and ensure that cooperation is thwarted. Get people fighting against each other instead of the corrupt powers-that-be. Use baseless caricatures to rile everyone up. For example, start a religious war whenever possible using stereotypes like “all Jews are selfish”, “all Christians are crazy” or “all Muslims are terrorists”. Accuse the author of being a gay, pro-abortion limp-wristed wimp or being a fundamentalist pro-war hick when the discussion has nothing to do with abortion, sexuality, religion, war or region. Appeal to people’s basest prejudices and biases. And – as Sweeney explains – push the author into a defensive posture:

Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule … Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as “kooks”, “right-wing”, “liberal”, “left-wing”, “terrorists”, “conspiracy buffs”, “radicals”, “militia”, “racists”, “religious fanatics”, “sexual deviates”, and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.

(The person trying to smear reputation may not be a random knucklehead … he may, in fact, be a government agent, or a member of the group he’s smearing.)

2. Pretend it’s hopeless because we’ll be squashed if we try. For example, every time a whistleblower leaks information, say “he’s going to be bumped off”. If people talk about protesting, organizing, boycotting, shareholder activism, spreading the real facts, moving our money or taking other constructive action, write things to scare and discourage people, say something like “we don’t have any chance because they have drones and they’ll just kill us if we try”, or “Americans are too stupid, lazy and greedy, so they’ll never help out.” Encourage people to be apathetic instead of trying to change things.

3. Demand complete, fool-proof and guaranteed solutions to the problems being discussed. For example, if a reporter breaks the story that the big banks conspired to rig a market, ask “given that people are selfish and that no regulation can close all possible loopholes … how are you going to change human nature?”, and pretend that it’s not worth talking about the details of the market manipulation. This discourages people from reporting on and publicizing the corruption, fraud and other real problems. And it ensures that not enough people will spread the facts so that the majority know what’s really going on.

4. Suggest extreme, over-the-top, counter-productive solutions which will hurt more than help, or which are wholly disproportionate to what is being discussed. For example, if the discussion is whether or not to break up the big banks or to go back on the gold standard, say that everyone over 30 should be killed because they are sell-outs and irredeemable, or that all of the banks should be bombed. This discredits the attempt to spread the facts and to organize, and is simply the web method of the provocateur.

Jeff Nielson replied to the topic Re: Sea levels rise around New York in the forums.
Let me add another "P.S." here as a point of analysis/logic. When I do my own research; I have traditionally always focused my time looking at materials of those with the OPPOSITE viewpoint.

Why do I do this? Because when I'm strongly certain that my position is the correct one; I can obtain more "proof" by picking apart the lies or omissions or errors in logic of my Opponents than I can generally do via (directly) researching my own position.

Again, this is a simple function of logical analysis. "Proving" something (in positive terms) is an extremely difficult proposition. This is something which can only be appreciated by people with a background in science, mathematics, or probability/statistics (which includes myself).

Instead, what is much more achievable is to simply demonstrate which side is WEAKER. This is what I've done here with this piece of anti-global warming disinformation. I've shown that the claim by these pseudo-scientists is not merely implausible, but RIDICULOUS.

The only way that "ocean currents" could cause a LONG-TERM rise in sea levels is through centrifugal force -- i.e. the ocean currents speeding-up faster and faster and faster...



For the Skeptics who have been fooled by anti-global warming brainwashing; this is the point upon which you MUST focus. Stating that global warming hasn't been "proven absolutely" is meaningless, because proving anything in the realm of climate analysis with such certainty is currently beyond our level of science.

What IS within our analytical capabilities is to judge the RELATIVE MERITS of each side. And, in my own experience, I never see silly/ridiculous claims by the (legitimate) scientists who advocate/acknowledge global warming, while I regularly see idiocy like this whenever the Establishment tries to tell their own lies on this subject.

Jeff Nielson created a new topic Sea levels rise around New York in the forums.
I saw this at Sinclair's site this morning, and there are a couple of points to note along with the obvious one: the sea level around New York jumped by 128 millimeters (about inches) in just two years.

As I have been pointing out in our global warming discussions; even (seemingly) "small" rises in sea levels have a MAJOR IMPACT, and thus the dramatic changes taking place today should be alarming any/all sane individuals, bringing me to the most significant data point reported in the article:

"The extreme sea level rise event during 2009-10 along the northeast coast of North America is unprecedented during the past century," Prof Jianjun Yin of the University of Arizona told BBC News.

"Statistical analysis indicates that it is a 1-in-850 year event."


In other words, what we're seeing today is not merely "anomalous" but are rather EXTREME ANOMALIES. Now note the sentence which immediately precedes the last quote.

Climate models suggest extreme sea level rises will become more common this century.

When extreme anomalies become the "norm", this is conclusive proof that what is currently happening is not "natural", in any way/shape/form. Unless something else has changed in the universe to affect the Earth's climate (i.e. if the Sun had heated-up); then what is happening to our climate must be MAN-MADE.

Note that this information is presented with NO MENTION of "global warming". How can you write an article about dramatically rising sea levels, and not mention the phrase "global warming", even as a possibility? Obviously no honest journalist could possibly "forget" to make some reference to this. Indeed, this reads purely like anti-global warming disinformation.

Commenting on the study, Prof Rowan Sutton, climate scientist at the National Centre for Atmospheric Science, University of Reading, said climate models suggest an increase in such events.

"This study identifies a record breaking high sea level event that occurred along part of the US east coast in 2009-10.

"There is strong evidence that the likelihood of such events has been increased by climate change, and that we should expect more such events in the future.

"This example illustrates how individual extreme events are influenced by multiple factors - in this case the global rise of sea levels, regional changes in ocean circulation, and wind patterns."

Dr Dan Hodson, also from the University of Reading, said the analysis underlined the importance of understanding the connections between surges in sea levels and ocean currents.

"Sea level change is a complex phenomenon, especially on the regional scale, where changes to the global ocean circulation can play a major role," he said.

"The east coast of North America is quite close to an area of active, fast ocean currents, and so is quite sensitive to changing ocean circulation.


What we're led to believe by these "experts" is that even extreme changes in sea levels can be nothing more than (supposedly) changes in ocean currents. Yes, perhaps this could be true over short-term intervals. But as a matter of simple physics; "ocean currents" cannot cause steadily rising sea levels over longer term periods -- which is precisely what is indicated in this data.

The ONLY way that ocean levels can rise steadily, over longer-term intervals is if there is MORE WATER in the oceans -- i.e. ice has been melting. Thus what we have is INSIDE this piece of anti-global warming bullshit; we have the Deniers admitting that sea levels are rising at an extreme rate.

P.S. This is the BBC's so-called "science correspondent" who put out this piece of propaganda, so there can be no claim of simple ignorance here.




US sea level north of New York City 'jumped by 128mm'

www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-31604953

Sea levels north of New York City rose by 128mm in two years, according to a report in the journal, Nature Communications.

Coastal areas will need to prepare for short term and extreme sea level events, say US scientists.

Climate models suggest extreme sea level rises will become more common this century.

"The extreme sea level rise event during 2009-10 along the northeast coast of North America is unprecedented during the past century," Prof Jianjun Yin of the University of Arizona told BBC News.

Koos Jansen has published a follow-up to that original "Google translation". Apparently much/most of his audience had a hard time digesting the gist of it (lol). My own interpretation appears to be in synch with Jansen.

He is reporting that (supposedly) the amount of "unallocated" (i.e. imaginary) gold comprising Austria's holdings has decreased from 56% to 'only' 22%. But then Jansen adds more information -- which casts enormous doubt on all these "accounting" numbers from the lying banksters and politicians.

According to Jansen:

Currently Germany, Estonia, Ireland, Greece, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Slovakia and Finland are fully allocated.

While Mr. Jansen is only the messenger here (so I won't "shoot" him); I'm surprised he reported these numbers without casting doubt on them. IF all these nations had genuine "allocated" holdings of gold, it would mean that virtually all of Europe's gold holdings REMAIN INTACT. No credible commentator believes this.

In particular; if Germany's gold was really all "allocated" (i.e. it actually existed); it would have taken Germany only a few WEEKS to "repatriate" their gold. Instead, after a full year where it got practically NOTHING; we have U.S. banksters now engaging in this "secret gold repatriation" farce -- where it is PRETENDING to ship Germany's gold back to it secretly.

‘Secret’ Gold Repatriation: the Banksters’ Newest Bullion Scam

Thus clearly what is actually being reported here is NOT that all of Austria's gold is (gradually) being "allocated" (i.e. collected on its behalf), but rather that any/all CLAIMS that this gold is "allocated" (any of it) are simply more accounting lies.

Note what else is readily admitted here:

The OeNB had no appropriate concept to perform audits of its gold reserves. … The lack of audit measures represented a gap in the internal control procedures of the OeNB.

If there are little-to-no accounting protocols to ensure that these so-called "audits" are legitimate, then any/all statements that ANY of Europe's gold is "allocated"M (i.e. still exists) are nothing but totally unsubstantiated assertions -- coming from SERIAL LIARS AND THIEVES.



No slight to Koos Jansen; but all that has been "proven" with these latest revelations is that NOTHING the banksters claim regarding "gold reserves" can be taken seriously -- any more than we believe their lies about supposed "inventories".


Austria Expresses Concern Over Their Gold At BOE

www.bullionstar.com/blog/koos-jansen/aus...rn-over-gold-at-boe/

Yesterday the Austrian Court of Audit (Der Rechnungshof) released a report on the Austrian central bank’s official gold reserves audits (Austria holds in total 280.0 metric tonnes). This report contains (official) critical notes regarding the safekeeping of the Austrian gold.

The report is written in German, but from being Dutch (my native language is similar to German), using Google Translate, having spoken to Peter Boehringer about this and using the English introduction from the Rechnungshof’s report, we can squeeze the essential bullion points from the report...

Jeff Nielson replied to the topic Re: The End of Bullion Bulls Canada in the forums.
One reason for making people aware of "the end" of BBC as far in advance as possible is to allow people to view things from our archives which they "intended" to do, but haven't found the time for. You only have a fixed amount of time to read/re-read those older pieces.

The other reason for doing this is it gives me an opportunity to point to parts of our site which even regular users may have never seen/noticed before. With the audience of this site tending to be somewhat older than the median; (like myself) internet "navigation" is probably not one of your strengths (lol). So for such "navigationally challenged" individuals; let me pass along some hard LINKS to different areas of this site which you may not have previously "found" on your own...

The VERY old "commentaries" in these archives are barely worthy of the name, and have mainly been preserved as a lesson in humility for myself. Lol!! But I encourage especially long-time readers/Members to look through these columns of commentaries -- and see how my writing has grown/evolved over the years.

When I/we started this site; I was just a shoot-from-the-lip "analyst" (lol) with a lot to say, but very little expertise in how to say it. Now I feel justified in referring to myself as "a professional writer", which (hopefully) means I've gotten much better at delivering my "messages" over the past 6+ years.

But there are a couple of other reasons why I also encourage readers to look through both recent and older commentaries. In a negative light; they would EXPOSE any mistakes, inconsistencies, or (unexplained) "changes in direction" in what I've been saying over these past years. In a positive light; they would/could CONFIRM when and where I've been right, as well as how my work has supposedly evolved to take account of new facts and "realities" which have become exposed since I started writing.

Obviously it's not for me to conclude whether I've been "right" more often than "wrong". That's an assessment which can only be made by this audience. But I have confidence in my own track-record over these past 6+ years, and thus I encourage readers to engage in this "litmus test" (if they can find the time for it).

Lastly; I wanted to note a "pet peeve" of both Chad and myself since we started this site: the tendency of many people to refer to Bullion Bulls Canada as "a blog". Obviously this WEB-SITE is much more than a mere blog -- as is hopefully demonstrated by the previous summary of our contents (from a multitude of contributors other than myself).

01:29 PM
Very interesting T/A!

While this is "Google translation" of Austrian text, I strongly encourage people to look at it for themselves, for two reasons. First of all there is a lot of information on the VARIOUS ways in which "accounting" for Europe's (supposed) gold reserves has been woefully deficient, and how the Austrian authority responsible for monitoring the PEOPLES' gold had obvious reason to suspect fraud, going back at least 6 years.

The second reason why people should take their own look at this is because it is a translation. Since the translation itself is imperfect, obviously any "translation" of the translation (including my own) will also have a considerable margin of uncertainty. Nonetheless; what this seems to be saying (according to my own interpretation) is that TODAY (as acknowledged in the title of The Daily Coin article) 22% of Austria's gold is "gone" in the sense that there is nothing representing other than the banksters' paper.

However, perhaps the more-interesting point is that this is a dramatic "improvement" (lol!) from as recently as 2009, when the same (so-called) accounting showed that 56% of Austria's gold was "gone" (i.e. nothing but part of an "unallocated" account). In other words; between 2009 and 2013, we're led to believe that either U.S. banksters "found" much of Austria's missing gold (lol!); OR (more probably) it RE-ALLOCATED (supposed) "physical" bullion which had previously been allocated to someone else (i.e. a different European government).



In the parlance of two-bit Con Men (which is all that these criminal Central Bankers really are); this is known as "a shell game". In the world of gold-manipulation; there is supposed to be "gold" underneath all of the shells. However, in reality only one of the shells has any gold under it, and so the fraudsters continually SHUFFLE the gold from underneath one shell to underneath another shell.

The "gold" is never visible, except when one of the Chumps (i.e. a European government) DEMANDS to see its gold. Then the fraudsters tell the Chump that all of the shells contain "gold", but they only allow the Chump a glimpse of the gold under ONE SHELL.



In other words; between 2009 and 2013 when supposedly Austria's percentage of "real gold" went from 44% to 78%, during that same period, the percentage of "real gold" credited to other European governments would have DECLINED by a commensurate amount.

Total fraud. Total corruption. And only NOW as the clamour for "getting our gold" increases from the populations of Europe is the TRUTH finally starting to leak out. There is only a TINY PERCENTAGE of "Europe's gold" still remaining, and we're on the verge of a second (fraudulent) "U.S. gold default".



The "wheels are falling off the bus" nearly everywhere we look now. Allow Psychopaths to remain in charge of anything over an extended period of time and they will DESTROY IT -- even their own empire...

One can only have mixed feelings in reporting this news. As noted at Zero Hedge; even as Russia tries to fend-off U.S. economic terrorism against the ruble (and its own hyperinflation); its neighbour (and former long-time ally) Ukraine is going into a hyperinflation death-spiral.

The reason for "mixed feelings" is obvious. On the one hand; for the THUGS who allowed themselves to be used as U.S. stooges in exchange for POWER, this is nothing more than "just desserts". However, for the PEOPLE of Ukraine, who had less "choice" with this corrupt regime than we do (with our own corrupt regimes), they are clearly victims.

The obvious irony here is that it was virtually inevitable that the U.S.'s terrorism against the ruble would spill-over into the economy of its new "ally": the Ukraine regime. While Russia may now be an official "enemy"; economically the Ukraine economy is much more closely tied to Russia than to the West.

Thus the Ukraine Thugs are getting their introduction to a U.S. colloquialism which they should have been aware of before: "Dixie Cup". What does "Dixie Cup" mean, when the phrase comes out of the mouth of U.S. Neo-Cons (who totally orchestrated the Ukraine coup)? A "Dixie Cup" is a particular category of "U.S. ally": it is one which can be used, crumpled-up, and then thrown away.

The Ukraine Thugs have already been "used", and now the Neo-Cons are content to crumple them up, and throw them away...



P.S. For another recent example of a U.S. Dixie Cup; see "ISIS":

Ukraine Enters Hyperinflation: Currency Trading Halted, "Soon We Will Walk Around With Suitcases For Cash"

www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-02-25/ukrain...ll-wwalk-around-suit

Yesterday we summarized the most recent economic, political and social situation in Ukraine as follows:

"A year or so on from the last coup in Ukraine, Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Sergey Arbuzov told TASS, with growing popular discontent, "another state coup can’t be ruled out in Ukraine." As the cease-fire deal hangs torn and tattered in the Debaltseve winds, the nation is a mess: a new gas dispute looms as Gazprom demands upfront payments; capital controls have been tightened as the $17.5bn IMF loan may not be enough; and the central bank governor faces prosecution as the economy craters. All of these factors have driven massive outflows from Ukraine and the Hryvnia has crashed to over 33 to the USD - a record high (and 70% devaluation from the last coup)."
12:30 PM
Jeff Nielson created a new topic NEW "probe" into Western gold manipulation in the forums.
More pathetic theater. The U.S. "Justice" Department and the CFTC are "investigating" gold-manipulation, with respect to the U.S. banksters. However, as is noted by the media shill below; the blind/deaf/dumb "regulators" in Europe have already looked into the same crime (by the same criminals) -- and claimed to have found nothing.

Meanwhile; the U.S. "Justice" Department has already pledged to PROTECT the Big Banks from any/all prosecution, so even if it does "find something", it has already promised to DO NOTHING about it. Then there is the CFTC. The CFTC supposedly "investigated" silver manipulation -- i.e. the worst/most-extreme manipulation in the history of human commerce -- and claimed to have found nothing.

Picture someone claiming to be "looking for criminals" from the INSIDE of a prison, but who claims to never be able to find any criminals. That's the CFTC.

CFTC Silver Probe: See-no-Evil, Hear-no-Evil, Speak-no-Evil



More generally; we now know with absolute certainty that none of these corrupt regimes will EVER do anything about any of the One Bank's financial crimes, no matter how large; no matter how many times it perpetrates the crime; no matter how much harm is done to the Victim(s).

We know this following their supposed "investigation" into the One Bank's serial currency manipulation. We were virtually promised "criminal prosecution" of not only individual banksters but the criminal Big Banks themselves. And this so-called "investigation" came right after the One Bank had ruthlessly attacked India's currency, and right before its current economic terrorism against Russia - via attacking the ruble. We got NOTHING.

How India Evaded The One Bank’s Gold-Embargo
Economic Terrorism Against Russia Intensifies



Obviously if these pretend-regulators will do nothing about the One Bank's worst financial crime (currency manipulation), even while its committing its largest crimes (attacking the rupee and ruble), then these corrupt charlatans would never do anything about a relatively "insignificant" crime like gold-manipulation.

So why even bother with these ultimate farces? Two reasons. To begin with; it's a stalling tactic. What happens whenever one of our corrupt governments gets CAUGHT doing something really bad? It "investigates" itself (lol!!). The purpose of such pseudo-investigations is not only to (hopefully) stall long enough for the apathetic Zombies to forget their "outrage", it's also designed to apply a THICK COAT OF WHITEWASH over the Truth -- as we saw with the U.S. government's 9/11 "investigations".

This brings us to the second purpose of these pretend-investigations: to provide "cover" for the future crimes of these criminals. What is any lying/thieving banker going to say to anyone who accuses him of gold manipulation after this pretend-investigation?

"We've already been 'investigated', and found NOT GUILTY."

Naturally that reply would be accompanied by an arrogant smirk.



P.S. Using the phrase "U.S. 'Justice' Department" in the same sentence as "investigate" is both a non sequitur and oxymoron.

The Justice Department Goes Hunting For A Gold Price Fix


www.forbes.com/sites/timtreadgold/2015/0...or-a-gold-price-fix/

Quaint or corrupt, that’s the question the U.S. Justice Department and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission have set themselves in their attempt to prize back the lid on the centuries-old world of trading metals in London.

What the U.S. investigators hope to find is a smoking gun linking some of the world’s biggest banks to allegations of market rigging, a job which European investigators have already dropped.

Jeff Nielson created a new topic Numbers from CHINA on "the gold market" in the forums.
Koos Jansen just put out a new article on a new "statement of intentions" of the SGE (i.e. Shanghai Gold Exchange). While Mr. Jansen focused on the SGE's intent to forge closer (commercial) ties to India's huge gold market; I was most interested in a couple of the numbers released by the SGE:

In recent years, we have witnessed the trend of “oriental gold” playing an increasingly important role in the global market attributable to the rapid development of the China’s gold market: in 2013 alone, the gold produced and imported by China exceeded 50 percent of the world’s gold production and 60 percent of the world’s gold consumption, respectively. As the world’s biggest gold producer, consumer, and importer, China is gradually integrating itself into the global gold market.

There are several points of interest in just that one line. We start with the absolute numbers: one nation is (by itself) producing/importing roughly half the world's gold, and consuming 60% of annual supply. Admittedly China has a huge population, but even so it only represents about 17% of the global population. So we see China is a disproportionally large player in this market by a factor of roughly three.

Obviously it's not sustainable for a nation with only 17% of the world's population to be consuming 60% of annual "supply" (meaning the supply of real metal), in much the same manner that it wasn't sustainable for the U.S. (with only 5% of the world's population) to be consuming 25% of crude oil supply.

But there is a second dimension of unsustainability here. When China speaks of producing-and-importing 50% of the world's gold it is talking about SUPPLY. And obviously when it speaks of consuming 60% of the world's gold it is talking about DEMAND. So rather than China's massive gold-mining industry and gold imports creating any sort of "glut" in that market; its total supply is insufficient to meet total demand.

This can only mean 1 of 2 things. Either China will manage to grab even a larger share of total, global supply (in order to meet its ravenous domestic demand); OR, China's supply/demand imbalance will lead to a bullion-default -- and one which the One Bank has no power to either hide or prevent.



Lastly, when the SGE talks about China accounting for half of the global gold "supply" and more than half of "demand"; by necessary implication it is treating the banksters' paper-called-gold markets as PURE PAPER -- i.e. pure fraud. Put another way; the only way the SGE could come up with such large numbers for China's supply and demand was to IGNORE the supposed "gold trading" occurring in the Western fraud markets.

Today the SGE (and by extension China's government) is merely implying that Western paper-called-gold markets are nothing but a massive fraud. How long until the SGE/China states EXPLICITLY that Western "gold" markets are nothing but gigantic frauds -- and thus reveals to the Zombies that "the Emperor is wearing no clothes"???



Just as we see China inexorably POSITIONING itself (like a chess player) to make the renminbi the new reserve currency, it is POSITIONING itself to replace the fraudulent, Western paper-called-gold markets with a legitimate market -- its own. While events are not progressing as rapidly as many ordinary investors would like, we can never forget that there is movement here, and more unsustainability.

The status quo cannot last, and at least one government (China) is not only preparing for what comes next, it is helping to accelerate this transition, but in a cautious, prudent manner. Sadly, this is the only way in which can operate when opposed by Psychopaths -- because China knows it is dangerous to PROVOKE Psychopaths (as Russia is currently demonstrating).

In the 1980’s; Canada was governed by (at that time) the most incompetent, fiscally irresponsible regime in the Western world: Brian Mulroney’s “Conservative” government. In a mere eight years; Canada’s national debt tripled, and its debt-to-GDP ratio soared to what was (at the time) an astronomical level above 70%.

Canada was considered to be in an official “debt crisis”. What is meant by the term debt-crisis? It’s all a function of simple arithmetic. It is where the total debt-load approaches a point where it is no longer mathematically possible for the economy to remain viable over the long term...

Cogitate over these realities. In nominal terms; food prices have been exploding higher (despite the Liars in media/government telling us "there is no inflation"). These higher prices have placed such a strain on our budgets that (for example) roughly 1/4 of all Americans now require "food stamps" simply to get by on a month-to-month basis.

Meanwhile, as reported by the Corporate media; despite these sky-high NOMINAL prices, farmers are going bankrupt. How can this be? Obviously (by definition) these prices are not "high" (in real dollars) or the farmers would be rolling in profits, not going bankrupt.

Clearly; these NOMINAL prices are (by definition) "low" in real dollars, or else the farmers would be able to (at least) meet their own living/operating expenses without difficulty. If sky-high NOMINAL prices are actually "low prices" in real dollars; that arithmetic dictates only one possible conclusion: the (paper) CURRENCIES we are using have become near-worthless -- even in terms of their actual purchasing power.

Unofficially (as we all know) all these fraudulent fiat currencies are totally worthless. So the point of this post is not to point out anything "new" to this audience. Rather, the point is simply to illustrate another logical disconnect -- i.e. another economic perversity.

Food prices are high. The Liars tell us there is "no inflation". Farmers are going bankrupt. There is no possible "explanation" for these perverse/contradictory facts. And as the examples of these perverse contradictions go from mere dozens to HUNDREDS of obvious perversities (in market after market, sector after sector), it is all these ridiculous lies which will (and gradually are) waking-up the Zombies.

While I can't speak for others; with the "average people" (i.e. Zombies) I'm encountering in my own life, there is more and more grumbling. They don't UNDERSTAND what is happening (of course), so they have no idea who to blame (yet); but the Zombies are (finally) beginning to clue-in that "things are not right" -- despite the endless assurances from the media/government Liars.

It's Boy-Who-Cried-Wolf syndrome: compulsive Liars whose inability to stop themselves from telling ever larger lies, ever more frequently ALWAYS DESTROYS THEIR OWN CREDIBILITY.



P.S. Notice how (as usual) the Liars attempt to tap-dance around the truth. It's not "the U.S. economy" as a whole which is showing "strain" (to put it mildly), but just the "farm economy". I guess the fact that we're ALL struggling with these high food prices means WE'RE all "farmers".







Rent walkouts point to strains in U.S. farm economy


www.reuters.com/article/2015/02/23/us-us...dUSKBN0LR0EX20150223

Across the U.S. Midwest, the plunge in grain prices to near four-year lows is pitting landowners determined to sustain rental incomes against farmer tenants worried about making rent payments because their revenues are squeezed.

Some grain farmers already see the burden as too big. They are taking an extreme step, one not widely seen since the 1980s: breaching lease contracts, reducing how much land they will sow this spring and risking years-long legal battles with landlords.

The tensions add to other signs the agricultural boom that the U.S. grain farming sector has enjoyed for a decade is over. On Friday, tractor maker John Deere cut its profit forecast citing falling sales caused by lower farm income and grain prices.

Many rent payments – which vary from a few thousand dollars for a tiny farm to millions for a major operation – are due on March 1, just weeks after the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimated net farm income, which peaked at $129 billion in 2013, could slide by almost a third this year to $74 billion...

Life is a journey, not a destination.


This is really just one of a "family" of related quotes:

"Live each day like it was your last."
"Live for the moment."

I'm sure that Members/readers can come up with a half-dozen other, similar quotes. They all ultimately communicate the same message. Life is fleeting, even if we are fortunate enough to live a long one. If we don't enjoy the "journey" (which is over all-too-soon), then even if we do arrive at our (intended) "destination", we will have lost out on so much that our lives have to offer.

Jeff ask/states-

But here, you don't need to (fully) understand the lyrics, because the VOCALS are so expressive. They communicate a feeling loud and clear: regret. And as a song about "regret"; it certainly has a home on this thread (and site). For those of us not numbed-out/dumbed-down by the brainwashing; we're practically drowning in regret.

Jeff,

You and poetry..... Well, it means whatever you want it to mean.

Today, to me its "regret" of a lost friend. We were naive, lost and searching to find ourselves growing up together. The world can be a very lonely place, answering the questions life presents. Yes, sometimes I wish they were here.

Tomorrow, I may make a more social out look. "For those of us not numbed-out/dumbed-down by the brainwashing; we're practically drowning in regret."

Regret, that society would rather kill there neighbor with a "Obamaphone" than raise a guillotine over LIBOR. That they can't tell the difference between Corporate Welfare and the welfare of people. I wish people were here, not agreeing with me, but at least seeing the bowl were in.


Wish who was here? We wish the Rothschilds were "here". We wish they possessed the HUMANITY to see what they have done, and feel (genuine) regret for their pointless, psychopathic folly which has created "here". But we know that's not possible...


I thought of you on this one when I posted. Your kind of a inspiration "sometimes".

Running over the same old ground.
And how we found
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Of course these are just my takes. The song could actually be a even more psychological series of questions.

Another persons take-

For me, it is definitely about "selling out" and giving up your dreams - about people who, gradually, gave up their ideals and forgot who they truly are, because they couldn't make the difference between true and false values, while trying to be successful in life, and they ended up in a self - made "cage". It is about not being able to tell between what is real and what is just a pretty imagination that is actually malicious and bad for you. It is like a well known truth that the devil isn't red and ugly,with a long tale and sharp teeth - he is usually wrapped in something nice, sweet and unbelievably attractive that promises you all the fun and all the happiness you can imagine....until it destroys you. You're brought to this world as a free man, as an innocent child, able to see people who they really are, but, eventually, as the years go by, and your appetite for wealth and security grows stronger, you go under the influence of media and "mainstream" opinion , and you start to give up your values.

"I did it my way" philosophy, you abandon everything that is too different from general behavior and accepted opinion, in order to fit in, to live in comfort: " did they get you to change your heroes for ghosts? .....cold comfort for change...DID YOU EXCHANGE A WALK ON PART IN A WAR FOR A LEAD ROLE IN A CAGE ? ". Did you exchange an opportunity to fight for your ideals, to take "a part in a war" , for a better position at work, a bigger car, popularity and fame ? Because, that kind of matrix world has thousands of rules, takes your individuality and orders you how to look, how to eat, how to have fun, how to have sex !

So , when you, eventually, come to the point that you have all those things you wanted so bad, that you have your "heaven", your " blue skies" and your "green field", suddenly, you can't realize why you are not as happy as you thought you would be, and you can't tell anymore if your heaven is actually hell, and your blue skies are actually pain.... and you wish that the person you once were is back. You miss the free man you once were, the free man you killed, and all that is left from a rebel you once were, is a silent fish, swimming in a cage made of glass...everybody is looking at you, you are the star - the beautiful exotic fish, your bowl is luxurious and the glass is the best glass money can buy, but you are completely exposed, your every move is detected,under shiny lights you have no privacy.... AND THERE IS NO HOPE FOR ESCAPE.

So Jeff, it's up to the individual to what any "poetry" means on any given day. Just the line "wish you were here".... "Regret", probably on many levels.

Take Care

There was some interesting data pointed out at Zero Hedge a few days ago (which I just noticed now), indicating that the East's three largest economies: China, Japan, and Russia had all significantly reduced their holdings of U.S. paper.

One possible interpretation, implied by the Zero Hedge piece, is that these three major economic powers have simply lost their "appetite" for this worthless/indigestible paper. And Zero Hedge itself notes the different circumstances of the three nations. But when we look closely at those different circumstances; we find interpreting this data becomes more ambiguous.

Only Russia's position seems rather simple: dumping its U.S. Treasuries is RETALIATION for the West's economic terrorism against Russia -- since the U.S. is the clear/sole instigator of this economic terrorism. At the same time; it's dumping these worthless bonds not only with those prices at absurd, all-time highs in absolute terms, but in RELATIVE terms (relative to the value of the ruble) they have never been worth more.

With Japan, while there might be some overt change in policy/strategy; the decline in its own holdings may simply be nothing more than 'economic fatigue'. As its own economy continues to wither-and-die; it can (literally) no longer afford to devote a grossly disproportionate amount of its own wealth/resources to simply holding its Master's worthless paper.

Then there is China. As I've explained previously; China stopped buying U.S. Treasuries directly right around the Crash of '08. Since that time; all the accumulation shown in the chart at Zero Hedge...



...has been SECONDARY BUYING. What do I mean there? I mean that all its "new" Treasuries have been acquired from the holdings of other nations -- as a component of its "currency swaps" and "bilateral trade agreements". And (as also explained) these currency-swaps are all about "draining the Swamp" (i.e. the global economy) of its U.S. paper, as China moves toward the renminbi as new reserve currency.

China never "rolls" over any of the U.S. debt its holding, but rather simply allows the bonds to mature, and then cashes out. So what does it mean when we see China's net holdings of Treasuries declining? It literally means nothing more than that its old bonds are maturing faster than its adding new ones.

Does this mean that it's deliberately slowing-down its process of replacing the USD? And, if so, is it because the process is now so far advanced that it can afford to "slow down"; or, is it forced to slow down because the general weakening of the global economy means it has less resources it can devote to this process???

And with the East having lightened its "load" of this financial feces; will we now see Belgium add another $30 or $40 billion to its own Treasuries holdings...

Certainly that's half the equation DayOwl, but we can't forget the equally important aspect of "taking a bite out of crime". It was the (first) U.S. prohibition which FUNDED the rise of organized crime in the U.S. (outside of the Rothschilds' financial crime syndicate). Similarly, Prohibition II (i.e. the War on Sanity) has funded a renaissance in organized crime in the U.S.

Given the dubious nature of our "history books"; it's likely no longer possible to know if there was one specific reason for ending Prohibition I. Drug "prohibition" is such a fatally flawed approach in so many ways to deal with this medical/social issue that it's a little presumptuous to conclude that dollars-and-cents was at the root of ending Prohibition I.

However, with respect to Prohibition II; I think you're correct. While there are numerous, valid reasons for ending this Idiot's Crusade; the reason that will sink in with respect to the stunted minds of our political representatives is MONEY.

Two Bills Introduced in Congress to Legalize and Legitimize Marijuana on a Federal Level

By Jay Syrmopoulos on February 21, 2015

thefreethoughtproject.com/bills-introduc...#V800OF7wb5b6Ae56.99

Washington, D.C. – Two bills were introduced on Friday, February 20, in the U.S. House of Representatives, that would legalize and tax adult-use marijuana federally.

U.S. Rep. Jared Polis introduced H.R. 1013, the “Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act.” The bill calls for states to be allowed to choose to legalize cannabis if they choose without having to worry about repercussions from the federal government.

The bill would also create a new regulatory structure by removing marijuana from the Schedule set by the Controlled Substance Act. Currently, cannabis is considered a Schedule 1 drug, which classifies it as having “no currently accepted medical use.”

The legislation calls for marijuana oversight to be transferred from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Marijuana would be regulated similarly to alcohol by inserting it into the section of the U.S. Code that covers “intoxicating liquors.”

“Over the past year, Colorado has demonstrated that regulating marijuana like alcohol takes money away from criminals and cartels, grows our economy, and keeps marijuana out of the hands of children,” said Rep. Polis.

Polis added, “While President Obama and the Justice Department have allowed the will of voters in states like Colorado and 22 other jurisdictions to move forward, small business owners, medical marijuana patients, and others who follow state laws still live with the fear that a new administration – or this one—could reverse course and turn them into criminals. It is time for us to replace the failed prohibition with a regulatory system that works and let states and municipalities decide for themselves if they want, or don’t want, to have legal marijuana within their borders.”

A separate bill forwarded by Earl Blumenauer, H.R. 1014, the “Marijuana Tax Revenue Act of 2015” would create a tax on all non-medical sales. IT would allow the industry to move from the fringes of society into the mainstream, lowering crime by reducing the black market.

The legislation would establish civil and criminal penalties for those who fail to comply, like those in place for the tobacco industry. In addition, it would require the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to conduct studies of the marijuana industry and issue recommendations to Congress.

Medical marijuana would be exempted from the new marijuana tax structure. The tax on non-medicinal marijuana would initially be set at 10% and rise to 25% over time as the black market is displaced by the legal market. The tax structure incorporates a tax on the sale by a producer (usually grower) to the next stage of production.

“It’s time for the federal government to chart a new path forward for marijuana,” said Representative Blumenauer. “Together these bills create a federal framework to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana, much like we treat alcohol and tobacco. The federal prohibition of marijuana has been a failure, wasting tax dollars and ruining countless lives. As more states move to legalize marijuana as Oregon, Colorado, Washington and Alaska have done, it’s imperative the federal government become a full partner in building a workable and safe framework.”

The drug war has been a complete and abject failure, used as a means to grow the police state. This is a strong first step towards righting the wrongs of the past 30 years.

Almost 50% of the U.S. population have tried marijuana in their lives, and recent opinion polls show that a majority of Americans support legalizing cannabis for adults.

The time has come to stop wasting federal tax dollars on enforcing marijuana prohibition. Far too many innocent lives have been destroyed due to the “War on Drugs.”

This legislation brings an opportunity for America to begin to forge a new path forward. Let’s spread the word about this common sense legislation and create a more just reality. The time has indeed come for a more common sense approach to marijuana.

Contact your representative immediately and let them know you support H.R 1013 and H.R. 1014.

Please help get the word out and share this information with your fellow Americans!

Jeff Nielson created a new topic The "Real Cost of Mining Gold" in the forums.
Here is some further perspective (from people who focus closely on the miners) on how fraudulent current bullion prices are, because they are not even sufficient to permit the long-term SURVIVAL of this sector/industry -- let alone any semblance of health.

As we see/hear here; we also can't trust the numbers coming from the miners themselves...





The most important point in these clips is that "ACQUISITION COSTS" are never included/accounted for when these lying miners "estimate" the cost of producing gold. Understand why this is so important, especially with the big miners.

These Senior Miners can't/won't develop their operations "organically" -- i.e. by doing their own exploration/development. So acquisitions are:

a) Essential for their survival
b) Growing rapidly in their size/expense

...but are NEVER factored into the "operating costs" of these miners, even though (as just explained) they are literally an OPERATING expense. I was a little disappointed that there were no hard numbers here, but perhaps that comes further in this series of clips.



My own off-the-cuff numbers (which I've published in previous commentaries) is that ACTUAL break-even costs for these miners are somewhere well above $1500/oz, and even the propaganda machine has acknowledged that $1,300/oz is "not a break-even price" for the industry.

Earl, this is Fascism 101. I'm sure that some in the audience are getting sick of that term (lol). But it's the only "ism" which actually does exist in the world. All the rest are mere ideological fronts, where the actual system of government actually has little resemblance to the supposed ideology.

For example; we supposed have capitalist systems of government -- not fascist. But WHERE is the "capitalism"? Capitalism is based upon two paramount foundations: free markets and competition.

We have the OPPOSITE of free markets. We have totally rigged casinos. We have the OPPOSITE of competition. We have a handful of oligopolies that totally dominate the global economy. The Liars call our system "capitalist" when it's actually the opposite of capitalism.

But "fascism" describes our political and economic system perfectly: government by crime syndicate -- a "crime syndicate" formed between government and Big Business (meaning the Oligarchs hiding behind those corporate fronts).

Fascism - a different KIND of "ism"

So what do we see here? We see the "carrot" given to Big Business (the Oligarchs), while the PEOPLE are beaten with the "stick". Fascism 101, and exactly what we have been seeing, year after year, from these corrupt regimes -- for almost the entire, previous quarter century.
