Just another down Sunday night

Posted by Buygold @ 19:12 on August 31, 2014  

I remember the good old days when pm’s would be up on a Sunday night before a holiday Monday and then give all the gains back by Tuesday am.

Not anymore, they just hit them on Sunday nights, EVERY SUNDAY. Absolutely disgustingly corrupt.

Insanity.  The things I hear people in public positions say; the things that happen to us and all around us as a result of public policy that we seem to have to control over; and, and, and….Damn it.  Where’s that head-banging-against-the-wall thing?!

Hong Kong braces for protests as China rules out full democracy


BEIJING/HONG KONG (Reuters) – Pro-democracy activists vowed on Sunday to bring Hong Kong’s financial hub to a standstill after China’s parliament rejected their demands for the right to freely choose the former British colony’s next leader in 2017.

The Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC) endorsed a framework to let only two or three candidates run in the 2017 leadership vote. All candidates must first obtain majority backing from a nominating committee likely to be stacked with Beijing loyalists.

The relatively tough decision by the NPC – China’s final arbiter on the city’s democratic affairs – makes it almost impossible for opposition democrats to get on the ballot.

“This is a legal, fair and reasonable decision. It is a dignified, prudent decision, and its legal effect is beyond doubt,” Li Fei, deputy secretary general of the NPC standing committee, told reporters after the decision.

Hundreds of “Occupy Central” activists, who demand Beijing allow a real, free election, prepared to stage a small protest late on Sunday to formally launch a campaign of civil disobedience that will climax with a blockade at some time of the city’s important Central business district.

“Today is not only the darkest day in the history of Hong Kong’s democratic development, today is also the darkest day of one country, two systems,” said Benny Tai, a law professor and one of Occupy Central’s main leaders, referring to the formula under which capitalist Hong Kong, with a population of around 7.2 million, was returned to Communist Chinese rule in 1997.

The Occupy movement said in a statement that “all chances of dialogue have been exhausted and the occupation of Central will definitely happen.” It gave no timeframe for its action.

A spokesman for Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing <0388.HK>, which operates the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, said contingency planning was taken very seriously. “We have long had a specialist team that coordinates group response plans for scenarios that put at risk the continuing operation of the exchange or threaten the well-being or safety of our staff.”

Hong Kong’s current chief executive Leung Chun-ying said Beijing’s decision represented a major step forward in Hong Kong’s development. “Universal suffrage for the (chief executive) election through “one person, one vote” by Hong Kong people is not only a big step forward for Hong Kong, but also a historic milestone for our country,” he said, adding people should express their opinion through peaceful and legal methods.

Political reform has been a constant source of friction between Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement and the mainland since Britain returned the city to China 17 years ago.

In nearby Macau, another special administrative region, leader and sole candidate Fernando Chui was “re-elected” on Sunday by a select panel of 400 largely pro-China loyalists in the tiny but wealthy former Portuguese colony.


Scores of police vehicles and hundreds of officers were deployed outside Hong Kong government headquarters as people began to gather late on Sunday, braving heavy rain at times, with some chanting slogans.

Key government buildings, including the Chief Executive’s office and a People’s Liberation Army barracks nearby, were also ringed by high fences and barricades.

“It (the NPC decision) leaves no room for us to fight for a genuinely democratic system, and we will begin our campaign for peaceful, non-violent struggle,” said Joseph Cheng, the convenor of the Alliance for True Democracy, a coalition of groups advocating universal suffrage in Hong Kong. “We want to tell the world we haven’t given up. We will continue to fight.”

On the surface, the NPC’s decision is a breakthrough that endorses the framework for the first direct vote by a Chinese city to choose its leader. Beijing is already hailing it as a milestone in democratic reform.

However, by tightly curbing nominations for the 2017 leadership poll, some democrats said Beijing was pushing a Chinese-style version of “fake” democracy.

The NPC statement said all nominations would be carried out according to “democratic procedures” and each candidate would need the endorsement of more than half of a nominating committee that will be similar in composition to an existing 1,200-person election committee stacked with Beijing loyalists.

The proposed electoral framework will still needs to be approved by two-thirds of Hong Kong’s 70-seat legislature. With pro-democracy lawmakers holding more than a third of the seats, the proposal will likely be shelved.

In that case, the next leader would likely again be chosen by a small election committee. Wang Zhenmin, a prominent legal scholar and adviser to the Chinese government, said recently that: “Less perfect universal suffrage is better than no universal suffrage,” adding that this window of opportunity in Hong Kong was an historical crossroads after “2,000 years of (Chinese) feudal history without any democracy.”

Senior Chinese officials have repeatedly warned activists against their “illegal” protests, and say they won’t back down.

Some key members of the pro-democracy movement, including media magnate Jimmy Lai, have also come under pressure in the run-up to the Chinese parliamentary decision.

China has also repeatedly warned against foreign interference, saying it will not tolerate the use of Hong Kong “as a bridgehead to subvert and infiltrate the mainland.”

The Occupy Central movement has not yet won broad support among Hong Kong’s middle class, who are concerned about antagonizing China and disruptions to business. Any strong measures by China or the Hong Kong police could change that.

FG, apparently the Gator Fans are a tough bunch. 🙂

(cant believe the game was canceled !)  Hmmmm…an Omen of sorts???

Well, would party with those Gator Fans any ole time. Good folks. Little crazy like me I guess…lol


Gators fan Martha Herrera said she and her family sat through all the delays and were going to try to “stick it out” until the game was cancelled.

“We were singing and dancing and getting really wet,” she said. “We were going to stick it out and we were really hoping to be able to soak it in. And enjoy the game but it will have to be another time. We were in the rain. … We didn’t want to miss out on any of it.”

Some fans continued to inhabit the Swamp throughout the delay, including a number of students on the stadium’s east side that seem unfazed by the strong downpours and lightning.

One female student ran out onto the field before security personnel corralled her. The young woman performed the Gator Chomp as she was led off the field. ”

He is preaching that $gold was a terrible bet when measured against the gains in the DOW. He uses a deliberate measure from Gold’s HIGHS at the top in 1980. However when measured against Gold’s LOWS in 1999/2001 Gold has given a 5x return whereas the DOW has not even doubled from the 11,000 zone.

As part of a legal settlement that will allow some illegal immigrants who deported themselves from Southern California to return to the United States, the federal government has agreed to advertise the settlement on various Mexican and Spanish-language media outlets.

The ACLU filed a class-action lawsuit last year on behalf of eleven illegal immigrants who deported themselves. The settlement reached on Wednesday will only cover “longtime California residents with relatives who are U.S. citizens and… young migrants whose parents brought them into the country illegally” who deported themselves between 2009 and 2013. An ACLU official has indicated that there were nearly 250,000 people who were “deported voluntarily from Southern California between 2009 and 2013” and estimated to the Los Angeles Times that the “number of repatriations could reach into the hundreds or thousands.”

The U.S. government, through ad buys online, in print, on billboards, and on radio stations, will hope to reach “friends and family of the affected class” in Southern California and Mexico. According to the settlement, the federal government will advertise on television channels like Univision, ESPN Deportes, MundoFox, El Universal, and the Univision Deportes Network. They will also partner with People en Espanol and even the Mexico National Football Team in addition to placing billboards “in high population Mexican border cities of Tijuana, Tecate and Mexicali, as well as focusing placements near border crossings.”

U.S. officials will also place “radio ads :60 in length… on top Spanish speaking radio stations near the Mexico/U.S. border.” Those who search for “Lopez Case,” “Lopez Class Action,” “Voluntary Return to Mexico,” “Rights for Detainees,” “Detained by ICE,” and “Returned to Mexico by ICE” will also be targeted with information about the settlement.

One short thought on “heir” or “family Gold”. If one owns gold it does not have to be cashed it in or spent to benefit from owning Gold. The mere fact that one owns gold ” free and clear assets” enables one to do things that would otherwise be impossible. I have spoken of “Credibility” and a “person’s word” being valuable. That is where gold fits in –  “Owning Gold gives one credibility. It is that simple. When you have creditability one does not even have to put up collateral for a loan. I told the story in “Chronicles” where a bank unsolicited delivered me a very large written letter of credit for a “signature” loan if I would use it – just to get my business and they wanted me to become a director – both of which I declined. Not bragging, just trying to bring home the point of how valuable credibility (owing gold) debt free assets really is a valuable Credibility. Credibility allows one to do business deals over the phone in minutes that would otherwise take a team of lawyers, accountants and title people weeks or months to complete. Own gold and silver and sit on it as a nest egg! Speculate if you must in stocks but Vegas can be more fun and just as profitable for all but a few. Off to spending some quality time with my four grandsons. Deadeye

Portugeezer @ 6:42 Thanks For The Post ….

Kinda hard for a goldbug to go wrong listening to you and Deadeye. Probably more practical life experience and wisdom in just the two of you fellas than could be found in all of Washington. Good points you make, keep reminding us from time to time please.

And if I had to pick just one chart to summarize “why gold’, it would have to be that one Ororeef put up the other day. Kinda sez it all. Surprised he didn’t draw it on a napkin its so good.  Shoot, cant find it this morning. Had it here somewhere….ole eyes aint what they used to be. The one showing Dow/Gold. Comparing 1996 to today. Yep, gold still in the wealth preservation biz.


Best, Farmboy




Morning Oasis – you too R640, the last couple of paragraphs of the ZH article you posted

But the only place where “discovery” would be by far the most interesting, is for the CME to disclose just which central banks provide, or take such as at 8am every morning when one market sell order takes out the entire bid staack, the most liquidity when it comes to central bank trades in “Metals Futures Contracts (Physicals).”

Because imagine the shock and awe if and when it is uncovered that the biggest active manipulators of gold are not some junior-level traders out of Britain’s criminal bank cartel, but the central banks themselves.

Finally, while the list above deals with international central banks “providing” ES liquidity, those wondering why the NY Fed is not on the list and just how the Fed’s active trading team participates in the market without breaking the law, we have just one word: Citadel.
