Are the European Central Banks Done Dumping Their Gold?
08-19-2009  •  The Golden Truth 
And the new gold agreement reduces the annual sales limit to 400 tons in order to accommodate IMF gold sales. China and India have indicated that not only would they like to buy the 403 tons the IMF wants to sell, but that they would like to buy all 3200 tons of IMF gold. We know that Germany, Switzerland and a few other European countries have indicated that they are done selling gold. Austria issued a statement this week that it was done selling gold until 2014. Italy is working on a tax agreement that would enable them to raise revenues without selling any more gold to raise revenues. So which countries are left as sellers? Likely candidates are France and Spain and maybe some smaller ECB countries which need to raise some cash. With world gold production declining every month now, and with global gold supply being quickly scooped up by several Asian and Arab Central Banks, where will the U.S. Government find more gold to keep its gold price suppression scheme alive?

China holds more US government debt than any other country and cut its holdings of US securities by more that 3% in June, said the BBC's Chris Hogg. Inflation fear In recent months the US government's budget deficit has widened thanks in part to the Obama administration's costly stimulus plan. Our correspondent in Shanghai says that China is worried about this, and fears the stimulus efforts will fuel inflation in the US, reducing the value of the dollar. This would then erode the value of the debt China holds in the US currency. In June, China cut its holdings of US securities by about $25bn, a fall of 3.1%. 'Dollar alternative' The sales were made as the US treasury secretary was visiting Beijing to try to reassure the Chinese that their investment in his country's government debt is safe. In 2008, the Chinese increased their holdings in US debt by 52% over 12 months. "China has said it would like to establish an alternative to the US dollar as  Read Full Story

With the development of killer drones, it seems like everyone is worrying about killer robots. Now, as if that wasn't bad enough, we need to start worrying about lying, cheating robots as well. In an experiment run at the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems in the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale of Lausanne, France, robots that were designed to cooperate in searching out a beneficial resource and avoiding a poisonous one learned to lie to each other in an attempt to hoard the resource. Picture a robo-Treasure of the Sierra Madre.   Read Full Story

Depression Assured? Maybe (Swine Flu)
08-19-2009  •  The Market Ticker 
This article has been making the rounds over on the forum, and I thought I'd comment on it. The Centers for Disease Control has predicted a 2.1 percent to 3.3 percent death rate among those who come down with swine flu this fall, which translates into an additional 52,000 to 86,000 deaths in the city over a three-month period, Kasdan said. Has the CDC actually predicted a 2.1-3.3% death rate for those who come down with the swine flu? (This is known as the "CFR", or "clinical fatality rate", among those in the field.) I have been trying to source this statement - so far without success. But if it is accurate then there are two things you need to take away from this right here and now: First, we will have an economic depression. If the CAR, or "attack rate" (the percentage of people in the population) who get the flu is in the typical range of 40-60% of the population, then a CFR of 2-3% means one million or more dead Americans this fal  Read Full Story

Assistant U.S. Attorney Adam Reeves is an Unethical Prosecutor
08-19-2009  •  CRIME & FEDERALISM 
Adam Reeves is the latest edition to the Prosecutorial Misconduct Wall of Shame: The record demonstrates that the prosecution [Adam Reeves] argued to the jury material facts that the prosecution knew were false, or at the very least had strong reason to doubt. Deliberate false statements by those privileged to represent the United States harm the trial process and the integrity of our prosecutorial system. We do not lightly tolerate a prosecutor asserting as a fact to the jury something known to be untrue or, at the very least, that the prosecution had very strong reason to doubt... There is no reason to tolerate such misconduct here. The ABA Journal has this report. Unfortunately, even though the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a criminal conviction based on prosecutorial misconduct, AUSA Reeves was never identified by name in the opinion. Instead, he was referred to as "the prosecution." With all due respect, your honors, "the prosecution" d  Read Full Story

The protester carrying an AR-15 rifle outside President Barack Obama's speech in Phoenix on Monday staged the "publicity stunt" with the help of two local Libertarian groups that have worked with the man on Ron Paul's presidential campaign.

Before attending a pro-Obama health-care reform rally outside the Phoenix Convention Center , the man who identified himself as "Chris" met with members of RP4409 and Freedom's Phoenix. That's according to Freedom's Phoenix Publisher Ernest Hancock, who is credited with coining and designing the logo for the "Ron Paul r3VOLution."

Armed men seen mixing with protesters outside recent events held by President Obama acted within the law, the White House said Tuesday, attempting to allay fears of a security threat.

Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, said people are entitled to carry weapons outside such events if local laws allow it. "There are laws that govern firearms that are done state or locally," he said. "Those laws don't change when the president comes to your state or locality."

Barack Obama: I’ll Pay Others to Drill for the Oil I won’t let Americans drill for themselves

Barack Obama is all in favor of offshore drilling for oil. Just not here in America. To prove the point, his administration is ready to lend $2 Billion dollars to Petrobas, the huge Brazilian Oil Company, to drill in their newly discovered oil fields off their Atlantic coast. Why is this president so intent on giving our money away in bucketfuls to left wing criminal enterprises in the U.S. and left wing governments in other countries? Or, could it be that almost 25% of George Soros’ portfolio is invested in Petrobas?  Read Full Story

South Korea aborted its first domestic launch of a rocket just minutes before scheduled liftoff because of a technical problem, delaying space ambitions that have threatened to anger rival North Korea.

The rocket was to have shot into space 4 months after North Korea was widely criticized for firing its own rocket in defiance of United Nations sanctions. The North said it would keep a close eye on the international response to Seoul's rocket launch.

Seattle voters have rejected a 20-cent fee for every paper or plastic bag they get from supermarkets, drug stores and convenience stores. The city's incumbent mayor didn't fare much better than the fee, trailing two challengers in a bid for a third term.

With about half the ballots counted in the all-mail vote, the bag fee was failing 58 percent to 42 percent in Tuesday's primary.

City leaders had passed an ordinance to charge the bag fee, which was to start in January. But the plastics industry bankrolled a referendum to put the question to voters in Tuesday's election

Government Keeps Pressing Ponzi Schemes

Former judge Andrew Napolitano said on Glenn Beck’s Fox News TV program that the federal government is involved in Ponzi schemes far bigger than recently convicted embezzler Bernard Madoff (whose actions crippled left-wing philanthropies) ever imagined. Everything the government runs is bankrupt: Medicare is broke; Medicaid is broke; the Post Office is broke; Amtrak is broke; Social Security is a bigger Ponzi scheme and bigger fraud than anything Madoff ever dreamed of and it is broke. The government consumes wealth; private industry produces wealth. The government and private enterprise are the opposite: If private enterprise fails to produce what consumers want or fails to return a profit to investors, it goes out of business.  Read Full Story

“Your Papers, Please!”
08-19-2009  •  The New American 
Not long ago, Americans feared and ridiculed the police states cursing too many parts of the world. We worried that they might one day conquer us despite their poverty and general misery even as we mocked their totalitarian tactics " especially their “Papers, please” mentality. Indeed, being forced to prove one’s identity to a bureaucrat on demand, having to carry and produce documents with personal information for his approval " or condemnation " seemed especially horrifying. One of our classic films, Casablanca, revolved around the deadly hassles of obtaining or forging such papers under the Nazis; episodes of Mission Impossible in the 1960s often featured the same detail as American agents outwitted sinister Slavic tyrants. What tragic irony, then, that the U.S. government increasingly compels us to identify ourselves. And it’s an even greater tragedy that this command no longer terrifies Americans, let alone goads them to protest. Until now. While the president and his cro  Read Full Story

Chris is inspired to come to the demonstration and exercise His rights of Free Speech, which includes his RIGHT to carry a loaded AR 15 as well as his loaded Glock 17 a 9 millimeter handgun around while he is peacefully rallying for the rights of the individual. He encounters crowds of acorn sponsored astroturf who are only interested in utilizing the force of government to steal from one group (the Productive class) to give to the another group (the welfare class). There are views of groups chanting for socialism, fascism and the nanny state welfare vs Freedom, individual rights and Responsibility. Our hero Chris does a few interviews with those that insist that when the government STEALS for a "good" cause that somehow negates the fact they had to steal the money in the first place!

Yet there are two main arguments in favor of mass free distribution. The first is that the poorest people simply cannot afford to pay $10 per net. The second is that there are important spillover benefits (or positive externalities ) when a person uses a bed net, because the net not only gives personal protection to the user but also helps to block transmission of the disease within the community. We should therefore encourage very high levels of bed net use, just as we do with immunizations.  Read Full Story
