  • Asian Metals Market Update: November-9-2017

    Gold and silver are not out of the woods. So far Trump has not said anything to destabilize the markets. Fears of a surprise resulted in the rise of gold and silver yesterday. Developments in Saudi Arabia are here to stay. It may or may not affect metals and crude oil. The internet is filled with speculation that there is collusion between Israel and Saudi to expand Israel among other political agendas. Something is fishy in Saudi Arabia. Something big will happen in the Middle East over the coming months. Only big political news from the Middle east will impact global financial markets.
    The trading volumes in bitcoins is not even five percent of its current potential. Bitcoins and other crypto currencies have a lot higher to go. A few Mount Gox type vanishing will be needed to prevent bitcoin prices from zooming. Nations will be forced to adopt and regulate bitcoins. Greater adoption of crypto currencies will imply greater investment demand for gold and silver.

  • LIES, LIES & OMG MORE LIES

    ‘There are three types of lies – lies, damn lies, and statistics.’ – Benjamin Disraeli
    Every month the government apparatchiks at the Bureau of Lies and Scams (BLS) dutifully announces inflation is still running below 2%. Janet Yellen then gives a speech where she notes her concern inflation is too low and she needs to keep interest rates near zero to save humanity from the scourge of too low inflation. I don’t know how I could survive without 2% inflation reducing my purchasing power.
    This week they reported year over year inflation of 1.9%. Just right to keep Janet from raising rates and keeping the stock market on track for new record highs. According to our beloved bureaucrats, after they have sliced, diced, massaged and manipulated the data, you’ve experienced annual inflation of 2.1% since 2000. If you believe that, I’ve got a great real estate deal for you in North Korea on the border with South Korea.
    ‘Lies sound like facts to those who’ve been conditioned to mis-recognize the truth.’ ‘ DaShanne Stokes

  • Fed Vice Chair, Stanley Fischer…Exit Stage Left: “This One’s Gonna Hurt”

    This one is going to hurt. Stanley Fischer is one, if not, our favorite economist.
    As Larry Summers points out in his recent piece in the Washington Post,
    The Fed and the international monetary system will be weaker for his departure from official responsibility. It is the end of an era. – Larry Summers, September 7
    Our friend, Terence Reilly, over at the Wall Street Blog sums it up best.
    When the pressure is on we like to have what we term ‘adults’ in the room. The ‘adults’ are not only the smartest people in the room but they are people who know how and when to make a decision. Stanley Fischer is one of those ‘adults’. Dr Fischer, former professor at MIT, vice chairman of CitiGroup, and chief economist of the World Bank, and former Governor of the Bank of Israel, resigned his position as vice chair of the Federal Reserve. Fischer played the role of intelligent hawk who we felt comfortable leaving in charge of the store. As this critical time approaches of the Fed removing stimulus his absence alone makes us less confident in the ‘adults’ left in the room. In one of his last public speeches as part of the Federal Reserve Dr Fischer warned about historically high asset valuations.

  • CHINA, GOLD and the US DOLLAR…

    The Neocon – Zionist drive for world domination is set to be brought to a screeching halt by something as simple as GOLD. This article is not politically motivated – the writer has no political agenda or affiliation – and the motivation for producing it is to enable you to understand the pivotal role that gold will play in thwarting the Empire’s imperialist ambitions, and how this means that the price of gold – and silver – will skyrocket, and sooner than many think possible. When you know that this is set to happen, and you understand the key reasons why, you will be able to position yourself to profit greatly from this profound and seismic global shift.
    First we will consider briefly the ambitions of the Empire and its current situation. Although transnational in scope, the Empire’s main geographical centers of power are the United States, Israel, whose power is out of all proportion to its size, and the old center of power Britain, which serves as the ‘Right Hand Man’ or ‘Number One’. The goals of the Zionist part of the Neocon – Zionist alliance are the creation of a greater Israel, to use their words ‘stretching from the Euphrates to the Nile’, and in pursuit of this goal they have already destroyed a significant part of the Arab world employing a ‘scorched earth’ policy utilizing the US military, which they control, and which is designed to wreck the economies of neighboring Arab States, leading to their subjugation. Their ultimate prize is Iran – once they have overcome Iran, the hugely indulgent and self-important Arab Sheikhs in Saudi will be unceremoniously kicked out of their palaces and probably left to the mercy of the mob, and here we should note that as Israel is a nuclear power with a population of only 8 million, and Iran is a non-nuclear power with approx. 80 million people, the attack would have to go nuclear to succeed. At this point most Arabs will be turned into an army of indentured servants who exist to serve their Masters in the Greater Israel – the only other choice they will have will be to flee to the emerging Caliphate in Europe, where Germans have already become 2nd class citizens in their own country, since immigrants have more protection under law than the indigenous population. From Israel’s point of view it is surrounded by States that are very different from itself, some of whom want its destruction. In this situation any nation would be likely to become paranoid. The ambitions of the Neocon element of the Neocon – Zionist alliance are much more succinctly stated as world domination, pure and simple – the control and exploitation of all the peoples of the world.

  • Chapter 43: Medicine

    Christian Economics: Teacher’s Edition
    And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which you knew, will he inflict on you, but he will lay them on all who hate you (Deuteronomy 7:15).
    AnalysisHealing is an aspect of covenantal ethics, according to the Bible. Health is a blessing of God; sickness is a curse. This is why the early church in the New Testament used healing as a way to demonstrate God’s new work of redemption, which was evidence of the church as God’s ecclesiastical representative in history, the replacement of Israel.
    Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. And a man lame from birth was being carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple that is called the Beautiful Gate to ask alms of those entering the temple. Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms. And Peter directed his gaze at him, as did John, and said, ‘Look at us.’ And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them. But Peter said, ‘I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!’ And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. And leaping up, he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God (Acts 3:1 – 8).
    The ability to heal miraculously has always been regarded by the masses as evidence of a person’s special relation to God. This same attitude prevails today in an era of scientific medicine. Medical missionaries are granted access into nations that are otherwise closed to missionaries. Political leaders regard the benefits of healing as outweighing the negatives of evangelism. Jews understood this principle in the Middle Ages. They became physicians to gain acceptance in the gentile world. Moses Maimonides, the Rambam, was the most famous Jewish theologian and philosopher of the Middle Ages. He was also the senior physician of the sultan of Cairo in the late twelfth century. Christian hospitals in the later Middle Ages were ministries of churches and ecclesiastical orders. Then there is the remarkable account written by lvar Nez Cabeza de Vaca of his eight-year trek from Florida through Texas into Mexico, 1528 – 1536. He describes the strange fact that he and his companions gained the power of healing halfway through their journey. They were welcomed by Indian tribes from Texas country to Mexico because of this. Word spread in advance that they were coming, tribe by tribe. They would probably have been killed had they not possessed this power. Instead, they were supported with food and water.

  • The Self-Preservation of Government Regulators

    Michael Lewis wrote Liar’s Poker, The Big Short, Moneyball, The Blind Side, and The Undoing Project, which may be the worst title for a great book in recent history. It is about Amos Tversky and David Kahneman, Israeli psychologists, who together created a new field of economics, behavioral economics.
    Lewis has a gift for words. If I could be as good as any non-fiction author, I would choose Lewis as my model, even without his movie royalties.
    In The Blind Side, he describes a lady from the NCAA’s department of improper boosterism. It looks for money or other favors that are given to college athletes.
    The NCAA was best described 20 years ago by free market economist Ben Rogge [ROWEguee]. He said the NCAA is a cartel of officially non-profit enterprises that collude to keep down the price of college athletes.
    Higher education in the United States is a government-created cartel. It is based on government licensing of what constitutes higher education. It is also based on a self-policing system of academic accreditation. The NCAA is simply an extension of the larger cartel.
    In the book and in the movie, we see a grilling of All-American high school football star Michael Oher by an NCAA investigator. She comes to investigate whether the Tuohy family improperly provided Oher with gifts to get him to attend the University of Mississippi, their alma mater. Since the Tuohys were multimillionaire whites who had adopted the homeless black giant of a teenager, there was at least plausible suspicion that something fishy was going on.
    Lewis offers this assessment of the NCAA’s investigatory department. He begins by describing the views of Sean Tuohy, the man who adopted Oher.

  • Chapter 30: Taxation

    Christian Economics: Teacher’s Edition
    So Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who were asking for a king from him. He said, ‘These will be the ways of the king who will reign over you: he will take your sons and appoint them to his chariots and to be his horsemen and to run before his chariots. And he will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and some to plow his ground and to reap his harvest, and to make his implements of war and the equipment of his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive orchards and give them to his servants. He will take the tenth of your grain and of your vineyards and give it to his officers and to his servants. He will take your male servants and female servants and the best of your young men and your donkeys, and put them to his work. He will take the tenth of your flocks, and you shall be his slaves. And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the Lord will not answer you in that day’ (I Samuel 8:10 – 18).
    AnalysisThe people of Israel were in rebellion against God. They wanted a king. Why? Because the nations around them had kings. Israel had done without a king or anything like one ever since the death of Joshua. Now they told Samuel to anoint a man to serve as king. This displeased Samuel. He prayed to God.
    And the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Obey the voice of the people in all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me from being king over them. 8 According to all the deeds that they have done, from the day I brought them up out of Egypt even to this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are also doing to you. Now then, obey their voice; only you shall solemnly warn them and show them the ways of the king who shall reign over them.’ (vv. 7 – 9)
    There is no question that high taxes and centralized civil government go together. Kingship represented a major move in Israel toward centralization. God told Samuel to warn them what this would mean in terms of taxation. The king would tax them at a rate of 10%, which was equal to the mandatory tithe they paid to the Levites. This threat did not impress the people. They demanded a king.

  • Buy Gold Near $1,200 ‘As Insurance’ – UBS Wealth

    ***
    Yesterday North Korea sent the US a ‘package of gifts’ for Independence Day.
    Unsurprisingly the successfully tested and launched intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) was not well received. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called the move a ‘new escalation of the threat’ to the U. S. and its allies and that ‘global action is required to stop a global threat.’

  • Introduction to Part 3: Protecting the Auction

    Christian Economics: Teacher’s Edition
    Moses chose able men out of all Israel and made them heads over the people, chiefs of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties, and of tens. And they judged the people at all times. Any hard case they brought to Moses, but any small matter they decided themselves (Exodus 18:25 – 26). Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed (Romans 13:1 – 7).
    The Bible mandates civil government. It categorically denies the legitimacy of the idea of a society without civil government. Throughout the history of Christianity, all ecclesiastical traditions have asserted the legitimacy of the state. There are no exceptions.
    Paul went so far as to mandate that churches pray for civil rulers. ‘First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way’ (I Timothy 2:1 – 2). If civil government were illegitimate, Paul would not have commanded such a thing. He did not say to pray for leaders of gangs or criminal syndicates.

  • El-Erian: 3 Things Stock Market Investors Should Watch (And 6 Observations)

    With attractive returns such as haven’t been seen for quite a few years, investors in global stock markets have had a very good first half of 2017. Record levels for several widely-followed country indexes occurred in the context of notably muted volatility, adding to the sense of investor comfort and accomplishment. All of this was accompanied by tensions and transitions — some completed and others frustrated, at least for now — that will likely influence how investors feel at the end of the year.
    Here are six key things you should know about recent developments, along with some important determinants of prospects for the remainder of the year:
    A generalized global stock market rally: According to a Wall Street Journal analysis of the world’s 30 biggest stock markets by value, 26 registered gains in the first half of 2017 (the exceptions were Canada, China, Israel and Russia). At the global level, this delivered the best first-half performance since the immediate bounce back from the depth of the 2008-09 global financial crisis. Almost half of these 30 markets ended June at or near record highs. Market leadership rotated with relatively diversified sector performance: Within the S&P, the largest market in the world, nine of 11 sectors delivered gains to investors. Yet dispersion was notable, both overall and within certain segments — notwithstanding a further shift to passive investing and the proliferation of index-based exchange-traded funds. Tech and health care led, with returns of 17 percent each; telecom lost 13 percent and energy 14 percent. Amazon surged while many traditional brick-and-mortar retailers languished. Despite a late gain that helped markets overall offset a June slump in tech, financials ended the six-month period only slightly above water. Meanwhile, size also mattered. The Dow and S&P gained 8 percent, along with 14 percent for the Nasdaq, while the Russell small cap benchmark lost about 5 percent.

  • Asian Metals Market Update: June-06-2017

    Developments in Qatar will be closely watched. Energy is the root cause of all Middle East wars. After Qatar, Oman will be left. Oman could also start turning into a Yemen from next year. The so called energy war in the Middle East is a joint effort by the Saudi’s and NATO to make new nations including expansion of Israel. Iran is a powerful nation and also has the support of Russia. The Syrian war changed when Russia started intervening. NATO forces are no match for Russian weapons. Gold will get the benefit of doubt. Unofficial physical gold demand in the Middle East will zoom.
    Technically gold and silver are bullish but need to break and trade over $1293 and $1776 for another wave of rise. Bloomberg survey says a ninety percent chance of an interest rate hike next week. There is speculation of preponement of German elections so that Merkel cashes in on the increase in voter sympathy towards her. I am not sure whether political developments in the Eurozone and the UK will support gold in the medium term. But any increase in political unrest in Europe will support gold.
