Bloomberg ignores request to examine central bank intervention against gold

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Neither Bloomberg News columnist Barry Ritholtz nor his editor, Mark Berley, has responded to your secretary/treasurer’s e-mail to them of last Wednesday, in response to Ritholtz’s latest commentary disparaging gold’s price performance, asking them to examine the documentation of surreptitious intervention in the gold market by central banks:


Indeed, tonight Bloomberg has followed with another report purporting to analyze the gold market without inquiring into the activity of the market’s biggest participants, central banks:


These are simply not honest and honorable journalists but rather — and knowingly — regime propagandists and disinformation specialists. Put specific questions to them about specific documents and evidence and, like the government officials they serve, they clam up. We just have to keep confronting these impersonators. Eventually we’ll find one capable of shame.

I’ve been enjoying the show, ever since Joe Sixpack, in 2008, stopped paying off his debts. the first ones butt slammed were the bankers. I knew that day, China, Europe and all those blood sucking socialist communist countries sucking off the USA were going to go down, one by one. Simple logic. Less American consumer dollars available to prop up the other nations.

“Socialism is fine, until you run out of other people’s money to spend” Margaret Thatcher quote. We finally got the big crash in ’08 that I was expecting since 1980. Global socialism (globalization) is finally failing, after 2008. Redistributing American’s consumer and investment dollars to other countries since 1975, has peaked in summer ’08.

The USA was in a “stealth” depression since 1980 to March 2009. Covered over in various ways, with tax payer dollars and higher credit limits until it got uncovered. China is next to get wealth siphoned off for the next 30 years, they can afford it now, we can’t. We are now like China was in 1979.

I’ve noticing the gov’t media pushing a lot of “higher wages needed” hoopla. Back in ’75 just the opposite, lots of “UAW auto workers wages too high ruining the country” hoopla.

Higher wages for hamburger flippers, will automatically raise all other occupation wages accordingly. Pecking order of occupations. The deflation (or wages lagging inflation) in tax payer sector, has been dragging everything down.

Ultimately, all foreign gov’ts, and global corporations depend on the taxes and wages and the best wherewithal of the USA masses. Greed has finally caught up to Robin Hoods, that were sucking the USA dry.

Greece Prints its own “YOU OWES”

Posted by Ororeef @ 20:14 on July 6, 2015  

Greece printing euros would instantly wipe out the value of the debt denominated in euros as well as wipe out most of the value of savings and purchasing power of earnings i .e. Greece would effectively be printing money to inflate its way out of the crisis and thus the Greek inflation rate would soar.

The reason why this is so dangerous is because contagion would be immediate in that German Euro notes would be deemed as being the most valuable and those of the PIIGS nations being marked down in value as each Euro note serial number is marked with the country of origin prefix as the following Italian euro note illustrates that is identified by S

they showed the Greeks how to do it..  The Mericans made bad loans to Mortgage payers who couldent possibly pay them back didn;t they ?  The gubberment forced the banks to do it “you cant deny a mortgage loan to anyone “just because they cant pay it back” you Racist Banksters you !

Whats different from that and the Greeks ?

Playing “Good COP,Bad Cop” with Germany and IMF

..now the Good Cop can make a deal with Germany and IMF..

If NOT ! Greece can print its own “YOU OWES”  look a LIKE Euros  with a Little “Y” added on to identify them from the rest…HaHA ….Then they can devalue the Euros with the little “Y” added ….If that dont work they can sell entry to Europe for all of Africa and China  for a fee of coarse…hehe.  In the end they will renew all Greek loans with a proviso that they pay back on a regular schedule with 10 % of previous loans to satisify IMF and German Banks so they dont have to write off anything ..its all a bookkeeping entry of coarse because they will get enough new loans to pay back old loans plus interest .If NOT Deutschbank is busted because their net Capital is equal to the Greek Loans also American Hedge Funds and Mutual Funds Hold 70 % of Euro loans because it pays more interest because of the higher risk..hehe..So Merica is in that sinking boat toooo.Zero interest in Merica caused them to “invest” in Europes “HIGH RATE” Bond MArkets to get Yield…hehe

You think Merica is immune from Greece problems …think again…hehe

re Greeks

The World that the Banksters have created for themselves is one that effectively has no consequences, so far only they and Politicians have enjoyed that priveledge….One can argue that the Greeks have decided to join in….so once again are in the forefront of Society…and may yet cause the downfall of FIAT money, that has no basis.

For once the No Consequence Priveledge becomes widespread, no paper has value.

FRR – Re Greece

Posted by Portugeezer @ 15:55 on July 6, 2015  

Remember the parable of the Mexican fisherman who was approached by a wall street goon?

See below if you don’t. That was Greece. They did what they have done for centuries. Overspend and devalue. The the wall street goons came in and fraudulently made them eligible for joining the EU. Bad mistake. Their get-out-of-jail card was thrown out. They could not devalue any more.

Now, if you or I invested in some dodgy bond and they went under, we would have no recourse. We would just be left to cry in our beer.

But those EU members who invested in Greece believe that they are entitled to more. They want their money back. So the Greeks have to bail them out.

What kind of investment is that? The risk was established by the higher yield on the bond and that should be that.

But no. Wall street dug the hole, the Greek establishment jumped in. I wouldn’t mind betting that the politicians of the time took a back-hander from GS. Now the peasants are stuck with the bill for bailing out the bond buyers. Nonsense.

JMHO, Rich


The Parable of the Mexican Fisherman and the Banker

An American investment banker was taking a much-needed vacation in a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. The boat had several large, fresh fish in it.

The investment banker was impressed by the quality of the fish and asked the Mexican how long it took to catch them.

The Mexican replied, “Only a little while.”

The banker then asked why he didn’t stay out longer and catch more fish?

The Mexican fisherman replied he had enough to support his family’s immediate needs.

The American then asked “But what do you do with the rest of your time?”

The Mexican fisherman replied, “I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siesta with my wife, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos: I have a full and busy life, señor.”

The investment banker scoffed, “I am an Ivy League MBA, and I could help you. You could spend more time fishing and with the proceeds buy a bigger boat, and with the proceeds from the bigger boat you could buy several boats until eventually you would have a whole fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to the middleman you could sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your own cannery. You could control the product, processing and distribution.”

Then he added, “Of course, you would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City where you would run your growing enterprise.”

The Mexican fisherman asked, “But señor, how long will this all take?”

To which the American replied, “15-20 years.”

“But what then?” asked the Mexican.

The American laughed and said, “That’s the best part. When the time is right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich. You could make millions.”

“Millions, señor? Then what?”

To which the investment banker replied, “Then you would retire. You could move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos.”

From a ZH thread..PM is a dead market at this time. I will look again at silver at ~ $12, and gold ~$1050.

Posted by Richard640 @ 15:44 on July 6, 2015  


NO. We are at all-in costs but that will be busted to mine the rich vein of stop losses and to set up bankruptcies so the cartels can swoop in and buy assets for pennies on the dollar. And the mines will not stop mining if the spot stays below costs. The mines will need the cash flow and will operate at a loss rather than shutter operations – setting up no shortage of inventory – which a lot of PM bulls are counting on to self-regulate the spot price.

PM is a dead market at this time. I will look again at silver at ~ $12, and gold ~$1050.

The Greeks insist on living the 20th century deluxe industrial age lifestyle, complete with 24/7 electricity, cheap groceries, cushy office jobs, early retirement, and plenty of walking-around money. They’ll be lucky if they land back in the 1800s, comfort-wise.

What happens in the case of untenable complexity is that it tends to unravel fast and furiously. That’s exactly why avalanches and earthquakes happen all at once, not stretched out over a six week period. The global financial scene not so different. It’s just another matrix of linked mutually-supporting relationships that can implode if a few members weaken.

One question worth reflecting on is whether the implosion is actually well underway on-the-ground in real economies, with just the scrim of illusion to make the surface appear intact. That surely seems to be the case in the USA, where the so-called economy has already avalanched into a rubble heap of part-time scut jobs, defaulted college loans, underwater mortgages, and groaning pension funds — with an overlay of pointless and endless motoring.

Over in Euroland, the Greek “no” also implies that every other sovereign nation wallowing in deep financial shit will demand a haircut (and a disinfectant shower). Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and even France cannot possibly meet their debt obligations. Their citizens are being taunted with currency controls, too, and they have every bit as much potential to go ape-y as the Greeks. Notice you haven’t heard much from their leaders and financial ministers in recent weeks. They are all standing on the sidelines watching the Greeks go through the wringer — but you can be sure they are all making plans of their own.

The failure of the European experiment will be extremely demoralizing to the hopeful citizens of that continent, who emerged from the bloodbath of the early 20th century to become the world’s premier peaceful tourist theme park. I don’t know that they necessarily have to go back to fighting each other on battlefields with things that blow up and destroy human flesh, but they surely have to decentralize and re-fashion some kind of simpler, local way-of-life if they expect to remain civilized.

It’ll happen everywhere. The Japanese are next, of course, and they may be the most fortunate, since they retain more than a few shreds of memory for exactly that mode of life: the Tokugawa shogunate (the Edo period, 1600 – 1853), a manner of high pre-industrial economy and culture that might have persisted indefinitely had not Commodore Perry come knocking on their door, so to speak, in his “black ships.”

Ukraine is about halfway back to being medieval with excellent potential to overshoot even that. The Euroland PIIG(F) nations don’t have the energy resources to extend Modernity, even if the banking system wasn’t terminally ill, and then on top of that they have the ethno-demographic quandary of creeping Muslimization — plus the additional flotillas of desperate boat people arriving daily.

America, count your blessings. Tattoos, obesity, drug use, and shiftlessness are all basically behavioral choices. You don’t need a finance minister or a central banker to overcome those problems.

but we need a congress with balls to do their job of impeachment which unfortunately we do not yet have. or in 2016 a leader with some respect for the constitution calling forth the doj to investigate his birth cert as a phony and if found so to press charges. that would be great since all his ‘signing’ of any new laws or eo’s would become illegitimate and void.

personally I believe he is a manchurian candidate without doubt. just his behavior in record sealing speaks volumes irrespective of his phony birth cert as per the cold case posse.

yes a patriot is now considered a terrorist as per the terrorist organsation cloaked in the banner of homey-suck-urity because the PTB all know what may be coming and they have their goober flunkies standing ready to identify and quell any rebellion from otherwise law abiding citizens. yes constitutionalists are suspect too along with x-military and gun owners too.

it’s a bad dream … come true – and you, who

together with the “Troika” forfeit.

As it seems the Greek financial Troubles are
in limbo, or akimbo.
Not knowing if defaulting officially or just
for the fraudulent keepers of a Western off(ic)al
monetary System based on fraud. Better, based on

Let’s hope, we may be soon able to

and even farther.

Welcome to Blackswansville

W hile the folks clogging the US tattoo parlors may not have noticed, things are beginning to look a little World War one-ish out there. Except the current blossoming world conflict is being fought not with massed troops and tanks but with interest rates and repayment schedules. Germany now dawdles in reply to the gauntlet slammed down Sunday in the Greek referendum (hell) “no” vote. Germany’s immediate strategy, it appears, is to apply some good old fashioned Teutonic todesfurcht — let the Greeks simmer in their own juices for a few days while depositors suck the dwindling cash reserves from the banks and the grocery store shelves empty out. Then what?

Nobody knows. And anything can happen.

One thing we ought to know: both sides in the current skirmish are fighting reality. The Germans foolishly insist that the Greek’s meet their debt obligations. The German’s are just pissing into the wind on that one, a hazardous business for a nation of beer drinkers. The Greeks insist on living the 20th century deluxe industrial age lifestyle, complete with 24/7 electricity, cheap groceries, cushy office jobs, early retirement, and plenty of walking-around money. They’ll be lucky if they land back in the 1800s, comfort-wise.
