Good old kalifornicate

Posted by Scruffy @ 23:58 on August 11, 2015  

(NaturalNews) In case you haven’t noticed, there’s an incremental push right now by the controlling elite to force vaccinations on all Americans, both young and old. And this agenda is gaining considerable traction in California, where legislators are now moving forward with plans to force childhood vaccines on all adults who work in daycare centers, both private and public.

Senate Bill 792, also known as the “Day care facilities: immunizations: exemptions” act, was presented quietly alongside SB 277, which eliminates personal, philosophical and religious vaccine exemptions for children who attend both private and public schools in the Golden State. The bill, as recently heard by the California Assembly Human Services Committee, reads as follows:

This bill, commencing September 1, 2016, would prohibit a day care center or a family day care home from employing any person who has not been immunized against influenza, pertussis, and measles.

If passed, SB 792 would represent the first adult vaccine mandate in the U.S. that disallows exemptions for personal reasons, and that threatens criminal penalties for those who fail or refuse to comply. Here’s how Vaccine Impact describes SB 792:

SB 792, would eliminate an adult’s right to exempt themselves from one, some, or all vaccines, a risk-laden medical procedure.

This bill would make California the first state to require mandated vaccinations for all childcare workers, including all private and public school early childhood education programs (Headstart, Private preK and preschools), family daycares, and daycare centers.

SB 792 represents medical violence against adults

An affront to both medical and religious liberty, SB 792 appears to be the wave of the future in New America, where the perceived health of the “herd” is now more important than the health of the individual. Never before in the history of the United States have legislators pushed this hard to literally force vaccine injections on the public under duress.

But why do they feel the need to do this if vaccines really work and are truly safe as claimed? The answer is that vaccines aren’t safe and effective, and more people than ever are acknowledging this truth and opting out of the “requirements” of the system through vaccine exemptions, hence the rush to eliminate these exemptions as quickly as possible, starting with California.

“This bill eliminates medical autonomy, crushes religious freedom, undermines personal freedom, and burdens quality providers with a non-optional series of medical interventions in the form of mandated vaccines that are not even 100% effective,” adds Vaccine Impact.

Contact California legislators and say NO to SB 792

As of this writing, SB 792 awaits a hearing by California’s Committee on Appropriations, having recently passed through the Assembly Human Services Committee with a 6-1 vote. The official vote tally reveals that the following members of this committee voted in FAVOR of passing SB 792:

Ian C. Calderon
Kansen Chu
Patty Lopez
Brian Maienschein
Mark Stone
Tony Thurmond

You can contact the above individuals here and let them know how you feel about their betrayal of medical freedom in California.

You can also contact the individual members of the Committee on Appropriations and tell them to vote AGAINST SB 792 by visiting: pro.assembly.ca.gov

Is the China devaluation(s) payback for not being included in the SDR?

The Fed Is Out Of Options, “QE Is All It Can Do Here” Art Cashin Predicts

Tyler Durden’s pictureSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 08/11/2015 20:43 -0400

Weakness in commodities “is not transitory,” Art Cashin tells CNBC, if you look at things like copper, “this is really a deflationary push… where things can get a little out of control.” The Fed says they must get off zero interest rates because,, as Cashin notes, “they can’t do anything else.” However, as the venerable floorman who has seen it all explains, “they’re in a kind of silly loop where they did QE expecting a reaction… didn’t get it.. and then they did QE again because it didn’t live up to their expectations… but I think they have no other options, if things get negative on the economy, QE is all they can do.”

Smart Money ready to bet on gold?

Posted by Scruffy @ 18:05 on August 11, 2015  

Consider the Hedgers’ [smart money] MAXIMUM net short positioning in gold futures which occurred in December 2009—-21 months – and another 50% gold rally – before prices topped.

How is that relevant for gold? As of this week, Commercial Hedgers are holding the LOWEST net short position in gold futures since the launch of the gold bull market in 2001.

Does this mean that a reversal higher is imminent in gold? Not necessarily. The thing with COT analysis is that it is difficult to correctly determine when an “extreme” in Hedgers’ positioning will actually result in a price reversal. As is said regarding all sorts of market metrics, an extreme in COT positioning can always get more extreme. Plus, the COT positioning can peak well in advance of the turn. Consider the Hedgers’ maximum net short positioning in gold futures which occurred in December 2009, 21 months – and another 50% gold rally – before prices topped.

Thus, it is tough to time trades with accuracy based on the COT report. However, one thing we can say in the gold bugs’ favor: what had mostly been a headwind for gold for the past decade or so is no longer the case. While it may not make an immediate impact, the “smart money” Commercial Hedgers are now more aligned with them than at any point since the bull market began in 2001.


2 faced banksters. Nothing to see here, move on.

Posted by Scruffy @ 18:03 on August 11, 2015  


  • On August 6, 2015, Goldman Sachs, which has issued very bearish forecasts on long-term gold prices, took delivery of a 3.2-ton purchase of physical gold.
  • On August 6, 2015, HSBC which also claims to be bearish, took delivery of a 3.9-ton purchase of physical gold.
  • In both cases, the purchases are registered as being for the benefit of the bank’s own house account, rather than the accounts of customers.
  • Investors should do as the banks do, not as they say.

On August 6, 2015, Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and HSBC (NYSE:HSBC) took delivery of a sum total of 7.1 tons of physical gold. No, I have not made any typographical errors. And no, I am not talking about electronic paper claims. I am talking about shiny yellow metal stuff that you can touch and feel.

The gold bars were not purchased for bank clients. They were purchased for the banks themselves. How do I know this? They are designated by the exchange as being for delivery to the bank’s “house” accounts at COMEX, not to client accounts.

Goldman Sachs, alone, took 3.2 tons worth of physical gold bars. Yet, even as the firm builds its stockpile, Goldman tells clients not to do it. According to Goldman’s Jeffrey Currie, the long-term outlook for gold is bleak.

“In longer term, we definitely like playing this market on the short side. We think we are in a structural bear market, not only in gold, but across the commodity complex, as the individual commodity stories are reinforcing to one another, creating a negative feedback loop.”

In spite of the antics in the paper-gold market, we know the physical market is on fire. Demand will exceed known supplies by at least 1,350 tons in 2015. More in 2016. But, that won’t stop someone from setting up the paper market in order to buy from the physical market very cheaply. This is because the mysterious gold “supplier of last resort” will fill COMEX physical delivery demand, for the moment at least, no matter how high it rises, and no matter how low other supplies may be.

According to HSBC strategists, there has been a:

“drift towards Fed tightening and the associated USD strength, low global inflationary pressure, weak gold demand from India and China and market positioning and momentum.”

This statement was made a few days before we all learned about the 61% increase in gold imports to India in the period, April to May. As one of the biggest players in the import market in India, how could have HSBC strategists not known about that? HSBC executives were certainly savvy enough to authorize this huge purchase of physical gold for the bank.

They bought 3.9 metric tons at COMEX, no doubt at rock bottom prices, and it was just delivered into the bank’s house account. Note that we are NOT talking about paper-gold. Both bought physical gold bars! Apparently, top Goldman and HSBC executives are “gold bugs.” They do not, apparently, believe in the promises made by the gold trust (NYSEARCA:GLD), or at least they are not willing to use the trust’s shares as a substitute for hard metal bars.

Like Indian newlyweds, the banks buy gold trinkets hand over fist even as their “strategists” tell everyone it is a bad investment. Reports do indicate that the London market is caught in a historic backwardation, the likes of which have never been seen before in history. Arbitragers won’t sell gold now, in exchange for a forward or futures promise of delivery. That illustrates an extreme level of market tightness.

My previous articles covered the situation in London. The use of logic, reason, common sense, and newly released transcripts, previously classified, caused me to conclude that the US government is currently the gold “supplier of last resort.” You can find those articles here and here.

To summarize, COMEX is designated by the US Financial Stability Council as a “Financial Market Utility” (FMU). The Council was set up by the Dodd-Frank Act, and views any failure of this “too-big-to-fail” entity as likely to lead to widespread contagion in multiple markets. Thus, logically, the US Treasury is willing to, and is draining physical gold from the US gold reserve to bail it out.

Still, regardless of what the US government is doing, why would these two banks make such a huge long-term investment in physical gold bullion bars? Perhaps, we are seeing a “Big Long,” similar to the “Big Short” Goldman Sachs is known to have taken in 2006/07. There are many who believe that we are soon going to see the collapse of a worldwide bond bubble, just as we saw a worldwide collapse of real estate values back then.

Maybe, these banks know something. Top bank executives don’t appear to trust counter-party promises. For example, why not buy an equivalent amount of gold in the form of shares in a highly liquid, easily traded gold trust? HSBC is actually the custodian of the alleged gold bars inside GLD, so you would think they would view it just as good as gold? Apparently not…

Perhaps, then, the banks are filled with tinfoil-hat-wearing goldbugs? You have to wonder what they’re worried about, because they’re not buying paper-gold shares of (NYSEARCA:IAU) either. They are buying hard metal bars that they can fondle. Whatever is going on, it is a big deal because absolutely no one who really believes long-term gold prices will stagnant or decline would buy 7.1 tons of physical metal.

Physical gold is a long-term investment, everywhere and always. They are not particularly hard to sell, especially now, but short-term trading would be much easier with paper-gold products like GLD or gold futures. Remember, vaults cost money, as do big men with big guns and the knowledge of how to use them. The banks are choosing to accumulate and hoard physical gold bars for a reason.

Senator Carl Levin, writing in a Congressional Report, used Goldman Sachs as an example of everything that went wrong in the banking system. According to him, before the subprime crisis, Goldman Sachs secretly built up a massive short position in credit default swaps, convincing customers to take the other side of the trade. The bank ended up paying a record fine of $500 million for one instance of the trade. However, overall, they profited to the tune of tens of billions of dollars.

Are Goldman and HSBC now creating a “Big Long” in gold. If not, what are they doing? But, if so, why are they taking delivery on a regulated exchange? By using a public exchange, the banks opened their activities to advance scrutiny. Why not buy physical gold the way they bought credit default swaps? Why not use secretive two-party transactions?

The answer is simple. It is impossible. Backwardation in London shows that arbitragers are ignoring potential profits. They don’t believe that a forward contract is reliable enough to return their metal. In contrast, COMEX now has an appearance of being backstopped by the US gold reserve, the “supplier of last resort” in the gold market. COMEX is designated as an FMU whose failure would lead to intermarket contagion.

The last place you want to be, when things “hit the fan,” is on the opposite side of a “Big Long” trade. That’s why, if you are now holding short positions, take your profits before it is too late. I discussed the details and various methods by which you can take a long-term position in gold here.

Theosebes Goodfellow

Whoa there, buckaroos! So everyone knows that China has been cooking the books as far a fair trading rate for the yuan. And now they cook it a little more (1.9%) and the world gets their knickers in a twist?

The Chinese, (like everyone else), is desperate to “re-ignite” they global economy which America has screwed by printing 12 Trillion dollars or so in the last 7 years. Now the Chinese know that a smidge under 2% “fire sale” isn’t going to reboot anything, (or at least we’d hope they know that a smidge under 2% fire sale isn’t going to reboot anything). I suspect that this is a trial ballon. I bet you that the next devaluation will be more on the order of 5 to 10%.

Then you can watch these other countries crap kittens.

Go long popcorn.
