the University of British Columbia ranks up there with the Colorado School of Mines.  Although not a graduate of this British Columbia professional school, I am proud to be an alumnus of the campus where they are based.  Graduates of this mining engineering school are the folks who produce real wealth from the earth’s geological resources.  I think that circumstance is realized by people such as Rob McEwen and Keith Neumeyer, CEOs of my favorite mining companies.  I thank UBC for maintaining this important trainig facility.

Assassination Of Top US Democratic Party Official Leads To FBI Capture Of Clinton “Hit Team”

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

A somber Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today says that a top American Democratic Party staffer preparing to testify against Hillary Clinton was assassinated this past Sunday during a secret meeting in Washington D.C. he believed he was having with Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents, but who turned out, instead, to be a “hit team”—and who, in turn, were captured yesterday after a running gun battle with US federal police forces just blocks from the White House. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

 

According to this report, SVR “electronic specialists” performing counter intelligence “missions/operations” noted on 7 July an “enormous/gigantic” increase of computer and telephonic traffic between the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters in Washington D.C. and the Clinton Foundation (CF) offices in New York City.

Upon a “deeper/broader” investigation into this “odd/strange” increase in communications between these believed to be separate organizations, this report continues, SVR analysts determined that the original initiating person responsible was a 27-year-old DNC official named Seth Rich who was that political organizations Deputy Director Data for Voter Protection/Expansion who had helped develop a computer program for the Democratic National Committee allowing people to type in their address and get a map to their polling place.

DNC official Seth Rich, assassinated 10 July 2016

 

What had drawn the concern of DNC official Seth Rich causing him to contact the Clinton Foundation, this report explains, was his discovery of a “pay-to-play” scheme that involved people seeking jobs with a new Hillary Clinton presidential administration to funnel money to the Clinton’s through their foundation with various US federal government positions being designated by the dollar amount it would cost to buy them.

As the “cash for favors” lifestyle of both former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton have long been known about, this report continues, SVR analysts, while preparing to document the results of their 7 July probe into the Clinton Foundation concerns of DNC official Seth Rich, became alarmed when they discovered that his “micro computer system” (cell phone?) had become “infected/virused” by “killers/assassins” working for the Clinton’s—and who the SVR had previously documented as being involved in the assassination of the husband of the State of Georgia prosecutor investigating Bill Clinton for child sex crimes and the murder of American pop singer Christina Grimmie and massacre of nearly 50 gay pride celebrants.

 

Fearing that the life of DNC official Seth Rich was in danger due to his being “tracked/targeted” by this known Clinton “hit team”, this report says, SVR Director Mikhail Fradkov authorized an emergency contact between his agency and the US State Department—but, and shockingly, when Russian diplomats presented the SVR findings to US authorities, on 7 July, they were immediately expelled from the United States.

Causing even greater perplexity to the SVR about these events, this report continues, was that in expelling these Russian diplomats from the United States, the US State Department thanked Russia for the information stating that it would be “taken care of”, and then formally requested that the matter remain secret.

However, less than 24 hour later, this report notes, the Washington Post wrote a “made up story” about what had actually happened causing Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov to publically state: “I can confirm that […] the US government did demand the departure of two employees of the Russian Embassy in Washington DC without presenting any complaints to the employees themselves. Furthermore, the State Department strongly asked us not to make this fact public. As you can see, it is customary for American diplomats to keep their word.”

 

Three days later, this report grimly states, SVR fears that the life of DNC official Seth Rich was in danger proved true when, on 10 July, he was gunned down in Washington D.C. at approximately 4:19 am.

According to the official US police report of DNC official Seth Rich’s murder, this report explains, it says: “Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred in the 2100 block of Flagler Place, Northwest on Sunday, July 10, 2016. At approximately 4:19 am, members of the Fifth District were patrolling the area when they heard gunshots. Upon arrival on the scene, members located an adult male victim conscious and breathing, and suffering from gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to an area hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.”

 

This SVR report, though, says that DNC official Seth Rich was “lured/enticed” to his murder by this Clinton “hit team” who portrayed themselves as FBI agents wanting to secretly interview him—and that the expelled Russian diplomats had given the US State Department “electronic access” to so that they could be found.

Curiously, this report continues, US authorities, and while being able to track this Clinton “hit team” since 7 July, only confronted these assassins yesterday—and who before being captured, engaged in a gun battle with US federal police forces firing their fully automatic weapons before being trapped and surrendering just blocks from the US Capitol and White House.

SVR intelligence analysts contributing to this report speculate that this latest assassination ordered by the Clinton’s has enraged FBI Director James Comey who barely a week ago allowed Hillary Clinton to walk free from her many crimes committed against her own government and people—and that he had no choice to do because of his own involvement with the Clinton Foundation while he was the director of the notorious HSBC money laundering bank that funneled hundreds-of-millions of dollars to the Clinton’s.

To what FBI Director Comey will now allow to happen to this Clinton “hit team” who assassinated DNC official Seth Rich this report doesn’t speculate upon—but it does conclude with a presentation of the many stunning facts regarding the Clinton Foundation that shows it to be nothing more than a “Clinton slush fund” that violated an agreement Hillary Clinton signed with Obama regime in her failing to report millions of dollars given to it by foreign governments, has over 300,000 contributors, and that the prestigious Charity Navigator organization refuses to even acknowledge it helps anyone but the Clinton’s themselves.

Laissez Faire Today

Abolish the FBI

 


 

--“Earlier this year,” Ron Paul said in 1997, speaking on the House floor, “another member severely criticized me on the House floor for declaring on C-SPAN that, indeed, many Americans justifiably feared their own government.

“This fear has come from the Police State mentality which prompted Ruby Ridge, WACO, and many other episodes of an errant federal government.

“Under the Constitution,” Paul goes on, “there was never meant to be a federal police force.

“Even an FBI, limited only to investigations, was not accepted until this century. Yet, today, fueled by the federal government’s misdirected War on Drugs, radical environmentalism and the aggressive behavior of the Nanny State, we have witnessed the massive build-up of a virtual army of armed regulators, prowling the states where they have no legal authority.

“The sacrifice of individual responsibility and the concept of local government by the majority of the American citizens,” Paul says, “has permitted for the army of bureaucrats to thrive.”

Indeed. And the FBI’s “success” over the years, as we have seen recently, has granted it the ability to pick and choose who is (or isn’t) above the law.

The FBI, as you know, has had a lot on its plate.

Ross Ulbricht received life. Aaron Swartz took his own life before they had the chance to throw the book at him for a victimless crime. Mark Cuban and Martha Stewart felt the heat, too.

But, Hillary Clinton? The most heinous abuser of them all?

Clearly too high up on the food chain.

Such is the difference between those who carry the pyramid (those operating in the private sector) and those who relax up near the cap-stone with grapes periodically dropped in their lie-dispensers (AKA The HillBillary Syndicate & Cronies).

McMaken Quote

Given recent events, it’s time, for what it’s worth, we took a good, hard look at the FBI.

And here’s why it’s doubly important right now…

Come December, if Congress doesn’t do anything to stop it, the FBI will be free to deem anyone who uses TOR software, or its equivalent, as guilty until proven innocent. In fact, anyone who takes steps to anonymize themselves on the Internet will be seen — and treated — as criminals.

“Simply having anonymity software installed on a computer,” The Last American Vagabond blog reports, “would be reason enough for the FBI to investigate that user to ‘combat cyber crime.’”

The agency’s unrestrained power — and clearly biased perch — is, to put it lightly, unsettling. The official stated goals of the FBI are, to name a couple, catching terrorists and child pornographers in the name of national and individual security. And although virtuous on paper, these stated goals have justified the FBI’s ability to track and target any American citizen arbitrarily, and without restraint. Plus, the FBI has been shown to make us less safe from terrorism.

Meanwhile, as usual, the private sector is proving that it can do what the FBI claims to do, without creating terrorists or trampling over the rights of peaceful, law-abiding citizens.

Take, for example, the blockchain start-up Elliptic, which has discovered a way to track blockchain transactions on child pornography and terrorist-linked websites to their sources. Elliptic’s technique is superior because there’s no need to paint a broad brush against thousands of other law-abiding, harmless Bitcoin users who simply like Bitcoin and use it for peaceful purposes.

Of course, Elliptic’s powerful tool could too-easily be perverted when put into the hands of armed agencies on their misguided and reckless mission to save us from ourselves. Which is all the more reason to allow the private sector (the “White Hats”) to handle such abuses on and offline.

Think such an idea is unprecedented? Think again.

In order to truly understand the FBI as an agency, it’s important we take a look at its origins. As you’ll see in today’s featured article below, the FBI was created to “compete” with successful and highly-effective private detective agencies.

And, rather than serving the people directly, as the private agencies did (or else their horrid reputations would make sure they wouldn’t find work), the agency created a monopoly by force and put privatized security agencies out of business.

The questions we must ask about the FBI, then, are the same ones we should ask about all alphabet agencies as Big Government explodes through its britches:

Should actors of the State have the power to trawl through your personal information without restraint? Should they be “above the law” in the way they deal with criminal investigations? How much power in the hands of “privileged individuals” is too much?

Most pressing of all: Is it time, as Ryan McMaken suggests in today’s featured post below, to abolish the FBI and allow the market to fill the void?

You decide.

Read on.

 

Abolish the FBI

Ryan McMaken

Like all employees of the FBI, James Comey lives off the sweat of the American taxpayer. His large salary, upon retirement, will be converted into a very generous pension. Like most federal employees in a high ranking position like his, Comey continues to look forward to decades of living at a standard of living far above what is experienced by ordinary people in the private sector.

To maintain this life of comfort, all he had to do was agree to look the other way as a powerful politician clearly — by Comey’s own admission — broke federal law.

Naturally, this same treatment would never be afforded to an ordinary taxpayer, who would likely be looking at years in federal prison for offenses similar to that which Hillary Clinton has apparently committed. Moreover, Comey even went out of his way to do his best to ensure no federal prosecutor would proceed with charges when he claimed that “no reasonable prosecutor” would proceed with charges. It wasn’t enough for Comey to simply not recommend charges. He had to pre-emptively condemn any prosecutor who might proceed with charges.

Some have claimed that Comey was forced to cave to Obama administration pressure in order to protect his family. Of course, Comey could have resigned his position rather than take a position he regarded as unethical. Then the task of clearing Clinton would have fallen to Comey’s successor. There are precedents for this. When ordered by Nixon to fire the special prosecutor in the Watergate scandal, Attorney General Elliot Richardson resigned rather than do what the president mandated. Comey could have done the same, but then he would have had to give up some of his comforts and privileges. To find work, he might have had to move to an unexciting place like Indianapolis or Albuquerque.

Nevertheless, Comey has accidentally done us a great service by publicly exhibiting the true nature of the FBI: it is a political organization that expands the reach and prerogatives of the federal government over citizens and taxpayers, while protecting the powerful.

Of all federal police forces, the FBI is the most romanticized, and every FBI agent is assumed to be the modern embodiment of a fictionalized version of Eliot Ness: incorruptible, professional, and efficient. Decades of pop culture has driven this home with TV series and movies such as The Untouchables, The FBI Story, and This Is Your FBI have long perpetuated the idea that when local police fail, the FBI will step in to be more effective and simply better than every other law enforcement agency. Corruption cannot touch the FBI, we are told, and they apply the law equally to everyone.

A History of Abuse

This was always obviously untrue to anyone not suffering from crippling naïvete, but Comey has helped make the political nature of the Bureau plain for all to see.

The reality and the romance, of course, have always been two totally different things, and it’s helpful to remind ourselves that it was the FBI that was in charge of the Waco massacre where 26 children were killed. It was the FBI that led the raid on Randy Weaver’s house where an FBI sniper shot a woman dead while she was holding a 10-month old baby. It was the FBI that spied on Martin Luther King, Jr., and targeted peaceful anti-war organizations for political reasons during the 1960s and 70s. It was the FBI that came of age arresting opponents of the First World War.

Naturally, in all of these cases, the FBI has actively covered up the facts and denied wrongdoing.

James Bovard reported in his 2012 article “A Stasi for America“:

A ripple of protest swept across the Internet in late March after the disclosure that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was teaching its agents that “the FBI has the ability to bend or suspend the law to impinge on the freedom of others.” This maxim was inculcated as part of FBI counterterrorism training.

The exposure of the training material — sparked by a series of articles by Wired.com’s Spencer Ackerman — spurred the ritual declaration by an FBI spokesman that “mistakes were made, and we are correcting those mistakes.”

No FBI officials were sanctioned or fired for teaching lawmen that they were above the law…At least the FBI has been consistent. Since its founding in 1908, the bureau has rarely let either the statute book or the Constitution impede its public service. Tim Weiner, the author of a superb exposé of the CIA (Legacy of Ashes) has delivered a riveting chronology of some of the FBI’s biggest crimes with his new book, Enemies.

Violating the rights of ordinary people has been standard policy at the FBI for decades. But, who can be surprised that the FBI now seeks to protect powerful politicians from the same laws that the FBI would enthusiastically use to prosecute and imprison ordinary citizens?

The FBI Is Unconstitutional and Ineffective

Thanks to the enduring view that federal police would tip the balance too far in favor of the federal government, many Americans opposed federal agencies like the FBI throughout the nineteenth century. It was feared that federal police would turn into secret police forces such as those known to be used in imperial Russia. Certainly, the Constitution does not mandate any federal police force. Consequently, it was not until the twentieth century that federal agencies like the FBI gained traction, thanks to a rising tide of pro-federal sentiment brought on by war and hysterical fear of “anarchists.”

Thanks to war hysteria during World War I, the FBI rose to prominence as Woodrow Wilson’s shock troops against “dissidents” (i.e., peaceful opponents of the war). Indeed, persecuting and prosecuting political enemies of the American state would become something of the forte of the FBI, with the role of the agency being expanded ever more during times of perceived national crisis. The idea of the FBI as a crime-fighting organization — the primary message of fawning treatments of the FBI such as The Untouchables and The FBI Story — for decades served as cover for the FBI’s political activities. As Foreign Policy pointed out in 2014, though, the FBI quietly dropped its claims of being a crime fighting organization and began declaring itself a “national security” organization. Down the memory hole goes the FBI’s original claimed raison d’etre. In its current Q and A, the FBI now acts as if it had never claimed to be a crime fighting organization at all:

Is the FBI a type of national police force?

No. The FBI is a national security organization that works closely with many partners around the country and across the globe to address the most serious security threats facing the nation.

No longer tied down by the need to waste its valuable time — as the FBI sees it — on mundane, real, and concrete crime such as kidnapping, the FBI can now focus on the far-more-amorphous “national security.” Never mind the fact, of course, that the FBI’s record on preventing terrorist acts such as 9/11 and the Orlando shooting is abysmal, and the terrorist plots it has “prevented” in recent years were actually facilitated by the FBI itself.

Predictably, after the FBI was criticized in the wake of the Orlando shooting, James Comey declared to the press that the FBI did a fine job:

“We are also going to look hard at our own work to see whether there is something we should have done differently,” Comey said. “So far, the honest answer is: I don’t think so.”

The FBI Was Created to Compete with Successful Private Agencies

It should be noted that the FBI was not created to fill a hole in law enforcement needs. On the contrary, it was created to usurp and displace a highly-efficient and effective private police force that already existed: the Pinkerton National Detective Agency.

Writing in Private Investigation and Security Science: A Scientific Approach, Frank Machovec notes that “The FBI, founded in 1908, was modeled from Pinkerton’s organization and methods,” while Marie Gottschalk writes in The Prison and the Gallows that “In its early years, the FBI modeled itself after the Pinkertons and other private police agencies.”

In fact, government-run police organizations had long been shown to be inefficient and prone to corruption, which is why the private sector turned to private security instead.

Gottschalk continues: “The unreliability of metropolitan police, with their strong local and partisan ties, prompted major businesses and industrialists to establish the Pinkertons and other private police forces. The Pinkertons ultimately functioned as a de facto national detective and policing service until the 1920s, when the FBI finally came into its own.”

By the early twentieth century, the Pinkertons and other private investigative organizations had established themselves as reliable and effective. It’s why the Pinkertons repeatedly show up in popular culture as the highly-efficient and dangerous enemies of beloved Old-West outlaws like Butch Cassidy.

As early as 1857, politicians were already noting the public’s favorable perceptions of private police over public police, with Chicago mayor John Wentworth noting:

“Our police system has been gradually falling into disrepute; and it is a lamentable fact that, whilst our citizens are heavily taxed to support a large police force, a highly respectable private police is doing a lucrative business. Our citizens have ceased to look to the public police for protection, for the detection of culprits or the recovery of stolen property.”

The federal government, however, wanted a similar force that it could directly control, and thus turned to a federal police force instead. The desire to present the new agency as like the Pinkertons can be seen in the decision to call FBI investigators “agents” just as many private sector investigators were addressed (as opposed to “deputy” or “officer”).

The Pinkertons were primarily interested in property crime with actual victims (i.e., train robbing). The FBI, however, could be used to go after political enemies, protesters, supposed draft dodgers and others who ran afoul of government regulations created to benefit the government itself. Over time, the FBI would crowd out the Pinkertons as a national police force (although, unfortunately, government organizations were known to contract with the Pinkertons).

This was all to the good according to many critics of the Pinkertons who wanted a government-controlled national police force that could be used against the private sector, rather than be controlled by it.

 

The FBI Is a Product of Anti-Capitalist Movements

Indeed, the rise of the FBI is very much the product of left-wing and labor unionist movements to curb the power of the Pinkertons in favor of the FBI and similar agencies.

A recent example of this line of thought can be found in Elizabeth Joh’s 2006 article “The Forgotten Threat: Private Policing and the State.”

As explained by Joh, the left was highly critical of the Pinkertons in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries for their role in combating striking workers and for being employed by private organizations. While federal police forces such as the FBI would work only in the “public interest” it was assumed, organizations like the the Pinkertons functioned at the morally base level of seeking “profit.”

The Pinkerton’s however, never functioned with the sort of firepower, manpower, and legal immunity enjoyed by federal agencies today. Indeed, in some cases, the Pinkertons surrendered to their “victims” as in the case of the Homestead Riot of 1892 where, according to Joh, “[o]utnumbered, the Pinkerton guards surrendered, and were beaten by an angry mob.”

Three workers were killed in the melee, making the Homestead Riot a peaceful affair by FBI standards. Under the leadership of the FBI, federal agents killed 17 times as many people at Waco, including children.

However, unlike Waco, which produced no sanctions or sustained public reactions against the FBI, the Homestead Riot became the high tide for anti-Pinkerton scrutiny and a flashpoint for action against private security agencies. For example, following an investigation of private security agencies at the time, the US Senate’s investigatory committee declared that private security is illegitimate and that “use of private armed men is an assumption [that is, usurpation] of the State’s authority by private citizens.” Indeed, the Senate committee declared, the use of private arms to secure private property will lead to “anarchy.”

For decades afterward, government committee and pro-labor groups worked together to condemn, investigate, and discredit private security agencies. Government agencies, it was maintained, would be responsive to elected officials and the public at large. If private policing agencies could be done away with, the public was told, no more would police organizations function in their own self-interest.

Such views have always been impressively naïve, although the public has long fallen for these claims. Moreover, one of the primary benefits of private security has been that it is subject to a totally separate and often hostile (to private security) legal system. Unlike the FBI, which enjoys a variety of government-granted immunities from responsibility for abuses and wrongful deaths, private security is legally subject to the same laws as everyone else.

Even worse, agencies like the FBI can directly tap into nearly limitless funds through their taxpayer-funded budgets. Unlike private security firms that are constrained by real-world budgets, government prosecutors and police agencies face no such limitation. Obviously, this places defendants at an even more lopsided economic disadvantage than when dealing with powerful private firms.

Today, federal police organizations, federal courts, and federal prosecutors are all part of a single organization. Naturally, these organizations tend to favor each other in their proceedings. On the other hand, if there is a distrust of private security within the court system (or vice versa) that’s all for the best, since as a result of this tension, checks and balances are likely to actually mean something. The same cannot be said for the current system which unifies policing and court proceedings within a single organization and in which a sizable number of government judges are former government prosecutors.

The Triumph of Federal Police in Public Opinion

The war on private security has now been so successful that few Americans would even entertain the idea of doing away with federal police agencies like the FBI in favor of private security organizations. It is now simply accepted that federal police officers may function unimpeded in every community in America, independent of local law enforcement (such as democratically-elected sheriffs), with powers to enforce everything from laws on what we eat, what we grow in our backyards, and whom we can hire. The FBI functions with an immense amount of insulation from the voting public and requires only the approval of the president and the attorney general to function unimpeded. The Hillary Clinton affair has shown how easy it is to choose between serving the White House, or serving the public, which has no power over the FBI.

Nevertheless, the FBI continues to benefit from decades of pop culture and government whitewashing which portrays the FBI and other federal agencies as professional and effective. Always a product of left-wing and Progressive desires for more government intervention and a weakened private sector, the FBI continues to benefit from the perception that it functions in the service of the “public.”

With James Comey’s recent demonstration of the FBI’s political motivations and origins, we have gained yet another insight into how the FBI works, and public service has very little to do with it.

Stocks versus Gold January 2015 until Current

Now we take a look at the same chart only with a term of “Year to date” and we see just how URGENT it is for the banks to find a way to force profit-taking in the metals and speaking of that, just HOW does a Central Planner accomplish that? Well, you know that many of the “Large Speculators” are playing the “Long gold/Short S&P500” pair and based on the massive increases in open interest, they are now massively long with the bullion bank buffoons matching up with an equally-massive short position. Thus far, the banks have thrown the proverbial kitchen sink at the Large Specs to try to create a liquidation panic in order to cover but have as of yet been unsuccessful. Furthermore, since Brexit, they doubled down on the trade highlighting the “Long Gold/Short Eurozone stocks” and as of this morning are drastically under water thanks to the interventions designed to keep the Eurozone banks (think Deutsche Bank) afloat. Now, all they have to do is keep this perpetual bid into the S&P, the FTSE, and the DAX and the margin pressure is going to build against the “Long Gold/Short SPY” trade until finally the Large Spec hedgies are forced to hit the UNWIND button. The chart below displays an enormous outperformance for gold since the beginning of 2016 but you have to remember that any portfolio manager who fails to nail down a 21% advantage over the competition (and in fact lets it slide away) will find himself out of a job in very short order. This is precisely the Achilles Heel of the current gold rally; it’s success year-to-date could quite conceivably be its own downfall.

The set-up is like something out of a Hollywood movie only this time it isn’t “Mr. Deeds Goes to Washington” but rather “Mr. Barnancke Goes to Tokyo” where the mere mention of that 10 TRILLION YEN stimulus takes the dollar-yen screaming higher and stocks dutifully follow. The 2016 golden screenplay should be following “The Treasure of the Sierra Madres” format but instead it is more like “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” with every Champagne Socialist politician in the world clamoring to get us back to the “good ol’ days” of galloping stock prices and deflating metals prices amidst this plethora of central bank cheerleading and price management. It is dead wrong and is starting to be seen for what it is – monetary policy designed for the exclusive benefit if the Super Elite in ALL countries around the globe the result of which will be an ever-increasing volley of Brexit-style anti-establishment referendums and populist revolts.

Final note: Amidst the current pullback in gold (of which I spoke and acted on last week), it is noteworthy that the Gold-To-Silver-Ratio (“GTSR”) which I shorted in very late March above 82 has made a new low for the move at 65.76 generating a 19.80% profit in 112 days. Additionally, the 357 Magnum Portfolio, introduced on April 30th in this humble missive is now up 30.62% since April 30th.

I am also looking to short the S&P500 and add to the UVXY under $7 perhaps as early as this afternoon. The CNBC crowd are now chortling over the Dow’s record high today thinking, of course, that it is the “masterful handling of the Brexit Crisis” that has allowed markets to levitate but if they took the time to remove their rose-coloured Raybans, they would see the criminal interventions and manipulations for what they are – a travesty of free market principles. Despite the smiling faces of Simon Knobs or Jim Cramer, we had the same amount of glee in May of 2015 when the S&P hit all-time highs only to get smoked in the late summer of that year.

Protect your precious metals profits as best you can; it is back to the dartboard for me.

FYI Dopey/UN/Dollar Down Today

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 11:45 on July 13, 2016  

I’m getting good at this game.

Yesterday…..

The UN/US Dollar Will Probably Be Bashed Down Soon.
Remember when they used to suddenly bash gold down during the night or day? Well, in my view, when futures traders get too bullish on the Dollar, and get it too high, TPTB or the Fed, bash it down suddenly without warning. The last time they used a phony bad jobs report as a reason for the drop the Dollar.

Look at job report, June DROP on the chart. Dollar was getting too high. Later on in June Brexit drove Dopey back up and way too high again. Giving confidence to dollar bulls again.

Mark my words, watch for another “hit” on the dollar soon, and the margined Dollar Bulls will get hurt AGAIN.

Today. Dollar down. This “change” will probably continue. Dopey UN Dollar too high.

Senior Bank Of England Official To Become Chairman Of LBMA

Posted by Farmboy @ 11:34 on July 13, 2016  

“Paul Fisher will become the new chairman of the London Bullion Market Association in September following his retirement from the Bank of England at the end of July, the LBMA said Wednesday.”

Comment: Obviously one must wonder what Mr Fisher’s views on gold might be. Here is a qoute that may reveal his stance.

“Q20 John Thurso: Do you think, given the very changed circumstances we are in now compared to some years ago, that it would have been wise not to have reduced our gold reserves but to have held on to those?

Dr Fisher: The problem with the gold reserves is that they are not very liquid. We still hold 300 tonnes of gold but you cannot go out to the market and sell 300 tonnes of gold very quickly. It took several years to sell the 400 tonnes that was sold. In terms of what would I like to be available to me as an instrument to help me if I was intervening in foreign currency markets, it would not be gold. I think gold has more value in a much longer term sense if you get into situations where you might be at war or some dramatic circumstances like that. That is the time gold may be a useful reserve asset. I do not think the reduction in gold is particularly relevant to the situation we are focused on now. I would rather have the more liquid assets.”
