Nike Launches Ad Campaign Starring Colin Kaepernick

If anyone deserved a multi day celebration of life it should have been Jeremiah Denton

Posted by goldielocks @ 21:27 on September 3, 2018  

He went through the same POW treatment as Mc Cain and defied his captors by blinking Torture in Morse code. But the democrats or swamp creatures didn’t like him because he wasn’t a push over and stood by his principles not just talk and his party unlike Mc Cain.
We went on to be a “real republican” senator.
A hero and real patriot.
The Democratic ” swamp” leadership refused to allow him on the Assembly floor for a 4th of July celebration.
He died in 2014, no multi day funeral putting on a show full of swamp creatures and establishment hacks.

In each of the 4 years that I have been a member of the state Assembly, we have had many “celebrations” on the Assembly floor. These “celebrations” are orchestrated by the Democrats who control the House and often involve singing and dancing. Every one of my 4 years have seen substantial celebrations of Cinco de Mayo (Commemorates the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla), St. Patrick’s Day (for the patron Saint of Ireland) and Chinese New Year’s Day, among others. But never once have we celebrated America’s Independence Day, the 4th of July.

So, this year, Republican Assemblyman Jay LaSuer of San Diego arranged for Vietnam war hero Admiral Jeremiah Denton to come to California to be a part of a 4th of July ceremony. As you may know, Admiral Denton was a Navy pilot in Vietnam who was shot down and spent 8 years in a Vietnamese prison. In 1966 while in prison, he was interviewed by North Vietnamese television in Hanoi after torture to get him to “respond properly.” During this interview, he blinked his eyes in Morse code to spell out the word “torture.” He was asked about his support for the war in Vietnam to which he replied “I don’t know what is happening now in Vietnam, because the only news sources I have are Vietnamese. But whatever the position of my government is, I believe in it, I support it, and I will support it as long as I live.” Four of his 8 years in prison were spent in solitary confinement. He later wrote the book “When Hell was in Session” chronicling his experience in Vietnam.
When he stepped off the plane after being released from prison in 1973, he said “We are honored to have had the opportunity to serve our country in difficult circumstances. We are profoundly grateful to our Commander-in-Chief for this day. God bless America.” He was later elected to the U.S. Senate from his home state of Alabama, becoming the first retired Admiral ever elected to that body. I could go on and on about his accomplishments.
Suffice it to say, Jeremiah Denton is unquestionably an American hero.
The Democratic leadership refused to allow him on the Assembly floor and there will be no 4th of July celebration. A memo from the Democratic speaker’s office said “problems have arisen both with regards to the spirit, content and participation of various individuals with regard to the ceremony.” Apparently, they said that he did not believe in the “separation of church and state” and they didn’t like the policies he supported as a United States Senator and therefore they would not allow him to be on the Assembly floor or to speak.

Must of been hard to watch.
In the mean time no thanks to him who got all the medical and didn’t have to worry about bills including funeral bills we need to get back health care reform he voted against for other people choosing between food and medicine or not paying for test they need they can’t afford. That and a host of other issues.

What I am saying is that the McCain funeral was a ruse compared to when Kennedy was shot.

Posted by goldielocks @ 17:58 on September 3, 2018  

Your kidding. Kennedy didn’t get his men killed like Mc Cain. Oh yeah I forget Mc Cain was a fake republican. I didn’t watch it. It was gonna be a self pitying shit show trying to take the moral high ground of blaming everyone else for his failed aspirations but himself. I heard he didn’t even envite Sara Palin. After all it was her fault he couldn’t become president as far as he was concerned. Not that the people rejected another establishment hack. What did he accomplish? Can anyone come up with anything? Trump has done more for the military and vets than he did in his lifetime of politics or ever would.
Well he got his mock president funeral most senators won’t see but he put himself as special. It seemed more for the living anti Trump like Mc Cain single handily was their savior by turning on his own party.

Don’t know if you were around when JFK was assassinated.  You had a whole nation in shock.  John McCain was the golden boy of the Military Industrial Complex.  They tried to emulate Kennedy’s funeral but it was so superficial it didn’t even register with the populous.

I respect his time as a pow but there were a lot of pows and not only pows but thousands who were shot, suffered chemicals and emotional and both and still are.
He was using his status for political gain and if you disagreed he would pull the guilt trip. He knew what he was doing. No different than playing PC when it came to politics to try to take the moral high ground to silence his critics.
Where was he leading the way for better treatment of veterans? Where was he when veterans were dying or detrimented being denied healthcare? The only thing I saw was concern for our enemies and torchered. Meanwhile our military were being torchered in their homeland.
Since they won’t make term limits God will.

[Maunds all excited about the bullish cots which have been a dud so far…but it’s good to see ANY 
 
bullish enthusiasm for PMs-so dont bet the ranch]

If we are a little too early, and silver drops some more, then so what? The entire financial system is set to blow to smithereens before much longer, and the Emerging Markets collapse is just the start of it—the periphery is burning and the firestorm will soon spread towards the center. When that happens there are going to be “precious” few hiding places, and the Precious Metals sector will be one of the only boltholes around. Before leaving these charts it is also worth noting that the Commercials went long silver for the first time since 2001 last week,and if that isn’t a sign of an imminent bull market, then I don’t know what is.

The net Commercial Hedgers chart is also unprecedentedly bullish, as it shows that this is the first time during the life of this chart, i.e., for the past 25 years at least, that they have held a net long position: put simply it doesn’t get any better than this.

A ZH reader=All I have to show for it is 2% growth vs everyone else’s 100% plus.

Posted by Richard640 @ 9:46 on September 3, 2018  

Been hearing this for 10 years. The market’s a casino, get out of stocks, buy gold, economic reset, etc. ==  It appears now that natural market will never return because it’s so manipulated. The question is what companies/industries are the most entrenched and thus likely to flourish regardless of what happens?

The Gold Update by Mark Mead Baillie — 459th Edition — San Francisco — 01 September 2018

Posted by Richard640 @ 9:34 on September 3, 2018  

Gold has now closed lower for five consecutive months for just the 11th time (on a mutually-exclusive basis) across the 524 months from January 1975-to-date. Therein, Gold has fallen for a sixth consecutive month just three times (and not since 1989), and never for a seventh consecutive month. To be sure “Buyer beware”, but at the same time “Buyer don’t get left out”. Here’s the graphic with its defined major strata:

Finally, let’s close with a note on the Federal Reserve Bank. Two headlines caught our eye this past week, one being published directly atop the other as follows:

The first one read: “Markets May Be Signaling Rising Recession Risk: Fed Study”
The second one read: “Powell: There Is ‘Good Reason’ to Expect the U.S. Economy’s Strong Run Will Continue”

Whaddya think, George?

–(a Daryl Cagle classic)

On the other hand, Gold’s been a classic since BC and before!

Some astute ZH readers=The shadow banking system has become massive and just like the last time around, it’s the “unmeasurable” benchmarks that are going to eventually crater the system.

Posted by Richard640 @ 6:33 on September 3, 2018  

Of course someone from Schwab is going to tell you the economy’s more resilient and few shocks will turn into crises going forward…now more than ever they need muppets to pour in keep the bubble afloat a bit longer.  It’s all a sugar high supported by QE and buybacks.  There’s no substance and nothing’s any better off than before.

****************************************************
“But it’s clear that on measurable benchmarks banks are much better prepared.”
The shadow banking system has become massive and just like the last time around, it’s the “unmeasurable” benchmarks that are going to eventually crater the system. Massive amounts of debt and “unmeasurable” leverage and leverage on leverage out there.
************************************************************
Collusion and protectionism.  Corporations, banks, insurance companies, they all run together.  Bailouts are just socialism for the rich.  Like some say, maybe a false flag event, or some big group pulls the plug. 
It’s a consumer based economy, as long as we can keep creating dollars and debt we can bump along like this for a long, long time.
I think ZIRP policies will keep the music playing, just keep rolling the debt over, creatively servicing it.  Your winning, your shorting the dollar, the more you owe, the less it’s worth in future dollars.  And, interest rates will go below zero at some point in the future, they already are in some countries.  Mortgage rates here in the U.S. will be financed down to numbers like 2% what we see in countries like Germany now.
I also tend to look around and see what’s in regarding creative financial moves.  Leverage seems to be in, as well as consolidation.
I also tend to look at what is growing but doesn’t have the money to pay for it, one example is health care, can the people afford this, not really.
Those who keep themselves healthy, and work the system will come out ahead.
It’s just as likely a banking event will occur again, in the event that defaults increase, banks will pull back, and they will all pull back together in concerto in order to avoid becoming bag holders. It’s a world economy now, so who knows.  The larger the consumer based economy base gets the more protection over all economic conditions have.  And, it’s a growing movement.
***************************************************************************************
Neoliberalism was a one way trip and we’ve reached the final destination, a debt saturated world.
Its success has come from bringing future prosperity into today with debt.
At 25.30 mins we can see the super imposed the debt-to-GDP ratios.
The end is nigh.
*********************************************************
There was a fatal flaw in the economics of globalisation.
The 1920s roared with debt based consumption and speculation until it all tipped over into the debt deflation of the Great Depression.
No one realised the problems that were building up in the economy as they used an economics that doesn’t look at private debt, neoclassical economics.
It is still the same.

And for those David Icke/ Demoncrat midterm candidates/ Alex Jonesers…

The last remaining semaphore signals on a mainline operation

a ‘Southwest Chief’ in each direction. No freight travels on these
rails anymore.
