US VP says Iraq has weapons of mass destruction and will use them …

Dick Cheney in 2002: “There is no doubt that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction

Dick Cheney’s Biggest Lie

Plenty of the best-informed intelligence sources were certain the WMDs were a fantasy. French intelligence knew it; so did Russia and Germany. The strongest human intelligence collected by the CIA—which secretly came from the Iraqi foreign minister, Naji Sabri, and Iraq’s head of intelligence, Tahir Jalil Habbush al-Tikriti—was detailed, correct and ignored. Instead, the administration built its case on Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi (the infamous “Curveball,” a man German intelligence had warned the CIA was unreliable) and Muhammad Harith, a former Iraqi intelligence officer whose information was dismissed by British intelligence as a fabrication 10 months before the war began.



I myself will never ever believe anything, anymore anyway anyhow if it comes from the media and does not make any sense. Everything we hear and see is somebody’s special interest advertisement for something they want to sell, or make people think.

Buygold @ 20:14 Try This On For Size

The little Fat Man with the funky haircut is simply garnering the worlds attention in an attempt to shake down the World Powers for a few hundred Billion in Sit Down, Shut Up, money before the 2018 Winter Olympic Games which are to be held in Seoul S. Korea in February

Or, Lil Kim is simply batcrap crazy, and does not understand he cannot push Trumps buttons. Failing to recognize and understand Trump is not a politician, and will drop one on his head may be a major malfunction of the Lil Tyrant. Could turn out to be good for gold though. 🙂

Hmm…seems like it might be more Kabuki theatre but I guess if it bluffs gold up a few bucks then whatever.

I do agree with the DOW going up 5K points though. War is great for markets.

If they do actually start shooting it will be to cover up whatever financial chaos the US has engineered.

Same as it always was.

So much for the summer doldrums…….Volatility everywhere !!!!!

Re Notes

I seem to remember a while back, that when someone checked out the ‘Indirects’, because they were taking such huge chunks, nearly all of it was a PO Box in Brussels….aka the Fed.

Been away for a few days …coming back is v depressing…the control is total…..but at some point that very control, will be the cause of total chaos.

Hmmm…war with N. Korea…oughta be good for $800 or $900 gold and another 5K DOW pts. up! eom

Who needs gold? U.S. t-notes and bonds better–an insatiable demand for U.S. paper!!

“Stellar” 3 Year Auction: Highest Bid To Cover Since 2015

Launching this week’s Treasury issuance of 3, 10 and 30Y paper, this afternoon’s 3-year note auction results was “stellar”, as Stone McCarthy put it.

The auction stopped 0.9 bps through the 1.529% When Issued, printing at 1.520% – the third consecutive “stopping through” auction in a row – with the highest bid/cover in more than a year and a half, as 3.13 bids tendered for every dollar, the highest since December 2015, far above the 2.80 6 month average. There were $75.1BN bids for $24BN in notes sold (ex-SOMA).

The internals were also impressive, with foreign buyers, or Indirects, awarded 64.1%, above last month’s 52.6% and above the 6MMA of 54.6%. The $20.960 billion Indirect bid today was far above the $15.229 billion average of the prior six months. In fact, outside of the $22.296 billion bid in June, it was the largest since January 2012. The hit ration was good for a bid of that size, boosting the Indirect takedown to 64.5% which is well above the 54.6% average of the prior six months. That is the third largest Indirect takedown on record, behind only the 65.6% takedown two months ago and the record 68.5% takedown in November 2009.

This is not some big bearish “crash” statement–I own no stocks and am long a lot of cash sitting in 6mo $ one yr t-notes earning zilch. I have a lot of commercial real estate. I want to have some hedge just in case and this is the time of the year to do so…plus downside protection is very cheap. Since I haunt  a lot of gloomy websites, I see a number of crash predictions–which I am not thrilled to see. But when viewing the more normative financial community, I see extreme indifference to risk…and a lot of “the market is bullet proof” thinking…[and maybe it is]…but 8 grand isn’t a terrifying sum to spend on a potentially high leverage trade with 6 months time on it.

I strongly suggest none of their pupils ever visit Singapore, in case they transgress. As I’m not sure they could handle the local police….let alone any jail time, or God forbid a caning !!!!

More than 21,000 mining jobs on the line in South Africa

Posted by ipso facto @ 9:44 on August 8, 2017  

Representatives from South Africa’s National Union of Mineworkers marched to AngloGold Ashanti’s (JSE:ANG) head office in Johannesburg to protest against the company’s decision to cut 8,500 jobs at its Carletonville operation.

Concerned about the steps taken by the world’s third-biggest gold producer, who said it is uneconomical to mine Carletonville’s shafts, and by Bokoni Platinum Mine’s plan to cut over 2,600 permanent jobs by next month, NUM’s president Piet Matosa is threatening with a general strike in coming days.

Sibanye Gold also announced it will restructure operations at its Cooke and Beatrix mines, a move that could affect 7,400 of its employees and 3,000 contractors.

Despite the fact that Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane has been implicated in the Gupta family scandal related to undue political influence in the South African government by the Oakbay owners, the labour movement wants both him and President Jacob Zuma to intervene as soon as possible.

the reason University degrees are worth very little today

Posted by Floridagold @ 9:22 on August 8, 2017  
  • A University of Georgia professor has adopted a “stress reduction policy” that will allow students to select their own grades if they “feel unduly stressed” by the ones they earned.
  • Similarly, students who feel stressed by “group dynamics” are allowed to walk away from their groups without explanation, and will only be graded on “non-group work.”
  • The professor acknowledges that “this policy might hinder the development of group skills and mastery of the class material,” but says this is each student’s own responsibility.

A University of Georgia professor has adopted a “stress reduction policy” that will allow students to select their own grades if they “feel unduly stressed” by the ones they earned.

According to online course syllabi for two of Dr. Richard Watson’s fall business courses, he has introduced the policy because “emotional reactions to stressful situations can have profound consequences for all involved.”

“[T]his policy might hinder the development of group skills and mastery of the class material…”   

As such, if students feel “unduly stressed by a grade for any assessable material or the overall course,” they can “email the instructor indicating what grade [they] think is appropriate, and it will be so changed” with “no explanation” being required.

“If in a group meeting, you feel stressed by your group’s dynamics, you should leave the meeting immediately and need offer no explanation to the group members,” the policy adds, saying such students can “discontinue all further group work” with their remaining grade being “based totally on non-group work.”

Similarly, when it comes to “tests and exams” for Watson’s “Data Management” and “Energy Informatics” courses, all will be “open book and open notes” and “designed to assess low level mastery of the course material” (the “Stress Reduction” section has been removed from both syllabi, but an archived version of the “Data Management” syllabus has been provided here).

Finally, for in-class presentations, Watson will allow “only positive comments” to be made, while “comments designed to improve future presentations will be communicated by email.”

Watson, notably, does concede that “while this policy might hinder the development of group skills and mastery of the class material,” those outcomes are ultimately a student’s “responsibility,” though he promises to “provide every opportunity for [students] to gain high level mastery.”

Campus Reform reached out to Watson—a “Regents Professor” at the university, a title “bestowed by the Board of Regents on truly distinguished faculty”—but did not receive a response in time for publication.
