Has The Balloon Gone Up?

What is the difference between an armed band of thugs and the police?
The latter conform with the law, including the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Amendments.
The former do not; they come with guns drawn, take what they want, and demand your silence -- not as a civil right in a court of law but as a demand that they make clear will be enforced with those very same guns.

Gold will be priceless sooner than you think

http://www.resourceinvestor.com/2015/04/23/gold-will-be-priceless-sooner-you-think

Let’s face it, currencies are swinging in value 20-50% regularly and while most people do not realize it their buying power often is not as strong as it was. Would you rather hold a large portion of your capital in say the euro which is falling like a rock in value costing you thousands of dollars a month, or would gold and silver which rises in value as your currency falls be a smarter decision?
Do not get me wrong, I am not trying to be a doom and gloom analyst. And I hope to be wrong, but with so many things pointing to an extreme global change it only makes sense to add some protection in the event something drastic does happen. My new book explains how to protect your capital in detail.
With the average fiat reserve currency since 1400 lasting between 80-105 years. With the dollar becoming the reserve currency in 1920 the odds point to the dollar being dropped within 3-5 years.

The Climate-Change Religion

Earth Day provided a fresh opening for Obama to raise alarms about global warming based on beliefs, not science. 

http://www.wsj.com/articles/the-climate-change-religion-1429832149?mod=trending_now_1

‘Today, our planet faces new challenges, but none pose a greater threat to future generations than climate change,” President Obama wrote in his proclamation for Earth Day on Wednesday. “As a Nation, we must act before it is too late.”

Secretary of State John Kerry, in an Earth Day op-ed for USA Today, declared that climate change has put America “on a dangerous path—along with the rest of the world.”

Both the president and Mr. Kerry cited rapidly warming global temperatures and ever-more-severe storms caused by climate change as reasons for urgent action.

Given that for the past decade and a half global-temperature increases have been negligible, and that the worsening-storms scenario has been widely debunked, the pronouncements from the Obama administration sound more like scare tactics than fact-based declarations.

At least the United Nations’ then-top climate scientist, Rajendra Pachauri, acknowledged—however inadvertently—the faith-based nature of climate-change rhetoric when he resigned amid scandal in February. In a farewell letter, he said that “the protection of Planet Earth, the survival of all species and sustainability of our ecosystems is more than a mission. It is my religion and my dharma.”

Instead of letting political ideology or climate “religion” guide government policy, we should focus on good science. The facts alone should determine what climate policy options the U.S. considers. That is what the scientific method calls for: inquiry based on measurable evidence. Unfortunately this administration’s climate plans ignore good science and seek only to advance a political agenda.

Climate reports from the U.N.—which the Obama administration consistently embraces—are designed to provide scientific cover for a preordained policy. This is not good science. Christiana Figueres, the official leading the U.N.’s effort to forge a new international climate treaty later this year in Paris, told reporters in February that the real goal is “to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years.” In other words, a central objective of these negotiations is the redistribution of wealth among nations. It is apparent that President Obama shares this vision.

The eCONomy is strong : Ford to cut 700

http://www.cnbc.com/id/102615759

 
Ford Motor Co said on Thursday it will lay off about 700 workers at a Detroit-area plant making compact and compact hybrid cars, responding to a dip in demand for such vehicles amid lower gasoline prices.
Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan is cutting a shift and will run on two shifts beginning June 22, said Ford spokeswoman Kristina Adamski.
The plant makes three versions of the Ford Focus compact car and the C-Max compact hybrid and C-Max plug-in hybrid car. Sales of hybrid and gasoline-powered small cars have taken a hit in recent months as tumbling crude oil prices sent gasoline prices lower.

GM, Ford want to Make Working on Your Car Illegal

https://www.yahoo.com/autos/s/gm-ford-others-want-working-own-car-illegal-160000229.html


One of the inherent rights of owning a vehicle is the ability to get on one’s backside — a wrench in one hand and a grease rag in the other, and just tinker to your little heart’s desire. Since the vehicle was invented, it’s been an important facet within the community of gearheads.
General Motors — the same company responsible for 87 deaths related to faulty ignition switches, FYI — wants to take that right away from you citing safety and security issues. Along with a few other big names.

Hmm, news flash - it's not your car, it is MY car. And if it is indeed YOUR car, when it break I want the corp to reimburse me for the down time as well as lost wages!.

History of Banking and Money Key Excerpts From Carroll Quigley's Tragedy and Hope

http://www.wanttoknow.info/articles/quigley_carroll.tragedy_hope_banking_money_history

"There does exist ... an international Anglophile network ... which we may identify as the Round Table Groups. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected ... to a few of its policies ... but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known."

Options expiry on Monday - same as it ever was.


A wise individual would take advantage of this sale, sadly the wise are to and far between. Of course  ( China, India and Russia ) are way ahead of the curve when it comes to BTFD mentality :)

Bankruptcies Suddenly Soar Across Corporate America, Worst First Quarter Since 2009

http://www.thestreet.com/story/13116087/1/bankruptcies-suddenly-soar-across-corporate-america-worst-first-quarter-since-2009.html?utm_content=buffer86391&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

This isn't the list of a single troubled sector that ran out of luck. This isn't a single issue, such as the oil-price collapse. It's a broader phenomenon: too much debt across a struggling economy. And now the reckoning has started.
The list only contains publicly traded companies that have already filed. But the energy sector, for example, is full of companies that are owned by private equity firms, such as natural gas driller Samson Resources, which warned in March that it might resort to bankruptcy to restructure its debt. Similar troubles are building up in other sectors.
