            Jim Puplava, I believe, is correct in saying that interest rates will remain low.

            My belief in this is quite simple…….Interest rates will remain low because the debt level is high.
            I believe the US dollar is in the long-term course of being destroyed.
            American spending has been too high, for too long.
            Certainly, the advantage has been that US citizens have been enabled to live high on the hog for a long time. It is now politically impossible to contain spending and the fiat US dollar is in a slow (decades long) death spiral.
            The Federal Reserve can try to lower its balance sheet, but removal of liquidity will cause an economic depression. This will make the Fed reverse course, I believe.

    BEIJING (AP) — China announced Saturday that it will limit energy supplies to North Korea and stop buying its textiles under U.N. sanctions imposed over its nuclear and missile development, further reducing support from Pyongyang’s last ally.

      We had a lot of discourse with many, specifically Bob M, saying that the current administration, like all the others, was treating the rest of the world like crap.

      Yes, of course we have made mistakes as have all other countries.

      But, do you agree that the President’s actions seem to be effective in controlling a man who could very well be a major danger to the Far East and eventually the rest of the world.

      From my personal perspective, I feel that the world is a safer place, as least so far.

      Please understand that I say this not just about North Korea, but also about potential actions of our country.

      Would really like opinions on my views.

        In The US there is open opposition to The President’s leadership, it is no longer unpatriotic to differ with The President, don’t get me wrong that is a good thing but it is not good when it is directed by the mass media. People need to think for themselves. Trump’s messages and speeches are inflammatory and not conducive to setting the tone for eventual peace with North Korea and ending a sixty five year armistice.

        We need a new vision for The Korean Peninsula, what is there now will never work, was never intended to work, and is an utter failure. The President needs to show leadership by example and not rhetoric, a good idea would be to introduce US troop reductions in the demilitarized zone and eventual total withdrawal if the two sides can come to a peace agreement instead of an armistice. China, Russia, Japan, The US, South Korea, and North Korea, should all be allowed representatives at these peace negotiations. The US troops in the Demilitarized Zone will not be alive if war breaks out. The World is changing and we need a new World order to make this vision a reality. The potential for loss of life on The Korean Peninsula and the rest of The World should be enough of a catalyst to broker a deal. All the above nations need to be respected and given a voice at the peace table. The US must not be allowed to dictate these terms as they have in the past. DT

            May I disagree.

            One has to be careful.
            Would Fatboy Kim not perceive American unilateral reduction of troops as a sign of weakness?

            Would it not result in a loss of “Face”?

            I’m a simpleton. I think that if the US simply gave NK a peace treaty and pulled out, the Koreans would work out their differences.

            But the US leadership won’t do this because their ambition requires Asian beachheads.

            GH,

            If your suggestion would work, could you perhaps explain what is currently stopping North and South Korea from “settling their differences” right now.

            I would submit the Kim tyranny has no desire to unite with South Korea.

            CFS,

            My guess is that the essential factor at work in the Korea situation is that the US REQUIRES a beachhead in Korea as a means of projecting military power at both China and Russia, including installation of both nuclear missiles as well as missile shields.

            North Koreans, on the other hand, aren’t so keen on the continued military drills off their coast by a country that slaughtered 20% of their grandparents, has refused to ever give them a peace treaty, and reneged on a disarmament treaty in the 90’s. For some crazy reason they fear the US may still mean them harm.

            I have no idea what Kim wants, nor do I have any idea whether Koreans in general want reunification. But that’s their business, anyway.

            CFS/Al:

            If there are no military solutions that make any sense, all other alternatives look good. For the US to be conducting war games on their border and whining about how fatso is the problem is insane.

            We either come to terms with him and stop the stupid and meaningless threats or we live with another nuclear power. Israel is far more belligerent and nuclear armed and we are not even allowed to discuss it.

            CFS,

            I am not sure if he would or would not. This is, at least for me, a difficult situation to fully understand.

            In this forum anyway, there are two very different philosophies. One is that America is an evil country and most of what it does is wrong. The other one is that Americans are good people.

            My personal opinion at this moment in time is that America has definitely made mistakes in the past. Is it on a difference track now under the current administration? I would like to think so.

            Do many disagree with me? Yes, but I think that they do for the wrong reasons.

            My liberal friends worship the ground that the Clinton family walks on. I don’t simply because there exist too many allegations that would dispute that.

            I would ask the question: “Aside from being a piss poor leaders, what has Trump done that is negative to other citizens of the world?

            This is something that I would really like to get some opinions on. I will be doing a bit of scriptural study today until about five p.m. pst. Obviously I am not going anywhere. I will check into this forum every fifteen minutes or so and weigh in on any additional comments on this particular subject. It is, at least to me, a very important one.

            of course we are not allowed to discuss it.

            Voltaire I believe, whom you can not criticize rules over you.
            something like that, Israel rules the US and anyone discussing that is considered a traitor, unpatriotic.

            The time could come when people will speak only in whispers.
            RT could be banned, u tube is already censoring what we are allowed to here about Syria for example.

            Its just another step of the process learned in the 40s.

          • On September 23, 2017 at 1:02 pm,
            Big Al says:

            When and if that happens b, I will definitely share your opinion. You have to admit that so far it has not. Look at the commentary on this site!

          • On September 23, 2017 at 1:39 pm,
            CFS says:

            Youtube, google and the like are run by Silicon Valley Centric rich kids with little real world experience or Diplomacy.
            The sooner, in my opinion, the google monopoly is broken up, the better.
            Perhaps, it is beginning already to happen, simply because many people in America are conservative in nature. Certainly there is beginning to be a European backlash against Google’s power.

            I personally feel that the US is not always a power for good, but neither is it always evil. It does much good; it does some evil things.
            All in all, however, the world would not be a better place if the US ceased to exist; it would probably be a lot worse.
            Similarly, democracy is not a perfect choice for a governing system; it is simply better than most alternatives.

            As regards RM’s obsession with evil Israel, I believe there is no prohibition in this forum to the topic.
            What did you think about Israel’s bombing of Syrian targets this week?
            Justified or not by the downing of an Israeli Surveillance drone?

            no offence Al, but even if there were 10k people reading this it doesnt compare to the billion RT and u tube have.

            PCR once said he does not fear for his life until RT is banned.
            Congress was discussing it the other day.

          • On September 23, 2017 at 4:02 pm,

            Al,

            “One is that America is an evil country and most of what it does is wrong. The other one is that Americans are good people.”

            That’s not how I see it. I believe most Americans are decent people, and were even more so going back in time. But I believe the US has fallen under the power of evil people, that the American people do not understand what is happening, and do not appreciate the gravity of the situation.

            A cashless world with 100% surveillance is not going to be pretty. That is what our leaders want. If a global totalitarian project is not Satanic, i.e. as in seeking to crush the human soul, then what is?

            In terms of Trumps speech the other day, I can understand your point of view. He espoused many noble ideals. But he inverted reality in so many places that it simply wasn’t an honest speech. I would think it’s rather galling for the dozens of countries there whose sovereignty the US has violated, to have to sit there and let that lie stand unchallenged. I know I would feel that way as an American, if the tables were turned. I DO feel that way, because the US is no longer run in the interest of Americans.

            I do consider every major post-WW2 war/conflict the US has been in to have been absolutely evil, and probably most others beside.

    Re: Seg. 7:

    I believe the strongest driver for gold is the permanent overspending by almost all governments in the world. In the long run it is inevitable that the purchasing power of currencies will decline. To preserve wealth, this requires investment in real things. While investment in depleting assets is not necessarily optimum, precious metals have a lengthy history of preserving wealth. The trick is finding mining companies that are developing increasing resources at reasonable costs, while not squandering cash on excessive management and other wasteful practices.

    Partly depressing the price of precious metals is the development of game-changing new technologies of blockchain and distributed ledgers, which have taken away some speculators.

    https://coinmarketcap.com/

    While cryptocurrencies may be vulnerable to attack from governments fearful of losing control of their fiat currencies, it is becoming increasingly clear that the technology is also being considered favorably by some countries. (almost with a “if you can’t beat it, join it” attitude.) It is now evident that part of the venture capital industry is being replaced by blockchain funding.

    CFS:

    Blockchain is an accounting system. Bitcoin is a pseudo currency system that uses blockchain. The two shouldn’t be confused. You could do the stock market or bank accounts with blockchain and that is the giant leap forward. Blockchain is the future, bitcoin and the 900 variations of pseudo currencies will disappear. All they are doing is demonstrating the technology. The technology solves problems, bitcoin does not.

            JohnK, the price action is all we need in order to determine whether or not BC is in a bubble — and it is. The asset, new or not, doesn’t matter. Human action/emotions remain the same and that is what causes prices to go parabolic. The “get me in now, I’m missing out!” mentality has been hard at work in BC for quite awhile now and ONLY hope underpins the prospects for higher prices, not fundamentals.

            The internet was very much a “disruptive paradigm shift” yet even the best tech stocks still crashed and burned and most are still way below their inflation-adjusted highs more than 15 years later.

            It should also be pointed out that BC hasn’t disrupted much, so far.

            John, my opinion would be the same even I had decided to speculate in it at the lows of 7 years ago. Nothing can change that it is extremely speculative – the huge gains certainly do not.

            I am not for or against it but just reporting the fact that it is clearly enjoying a mania. If it is where I think it is with respect to the life of a bubble, then it will probably be closer to $1,000 in 6 months than its high. However, the case for one more run to a much higher high can be made and would include the modest volume at the recent top. In dollar terms it was quite high but I would have expected actual volume to be much more impressive.

            So there is no doubt that we are witnessing a mania/bubble but it is a little early to be certain it has seen a top that will last for years.

            P.s. – Your comparison to the fiat currencies of the world doesn’t work for a number of reasons which I will spare you.

          That is a valid point JohnK. If someone is going to take a very opinionated stance on a political view, then they must expect there will be disagreement.

          I’ve said for years that some of the macro politics (like Central Banks, laws that affect industry, exports/imports, and GDP etc….) is fine as it relates to the macro economic backdrop. It is actually relevant.

          The problem is that once people get all amped up politics it doesn’t end there….. All it takes is a few wacko comments and then the blog descends into a political cesspool, where frequent arguments and disagreements breakout. Why people continually want more of that is perplexing and disappointing and may generate more comments, but so do trashy political articles on the main stream media outlets. There are plenty of sites pumping out the charged rhetoric and filth, but that isn’t why most people find the KER through Kitco, Mining company links, or resource Investing conferences.

          Politics is extremely polarizing, so then people get way too emotional, and finally people get turned off and leave for good. Taking a hardcore political or religious stance on any side of the arguement is going to immediately alienate half the audience. The discussion then delves into areas that really have nothing to do with economics or financial tie in, and yet others will continually try to link this garbage to be relevant for investors in the resource sector. (here’s a clue, most of it has no relation to investing, and is simply dwelling on the negative, finger pointing, and obsessing over the problems – with little solutions offered up).

          There are number of people who have private-messaged me over at ceo.ca when I repost KER interviews and quite often they’ll mention that they like some of the interviews on this stie (that feature newsletter writers, economic pundits, and company CEOs), but that the political side of the KER really turns them off and that is why they tune out or don’t comment any more.

          Politics, by it’s very nature is divisive, but some of the topics sloshed around just turn into filth, conspiracy theories, or table-pounding on their ethnocentric views of culture and the world. Despite this reality, some people clamor on that the really ugly polarizing discussions are important for investing, (yet most of the people that claim that rarely discuss anything that is relevant to investing). I completely understand why others that don’t share the political views pumped on here would just prefer to steer clear of the site altogether.

            Hi Shad:
            I try to steer clear of Politics.It’s just that sometimes I have to start posting when people post things that I consider ignorant. Also somebody has to defend the good ol USA against all these foreigners that continually try paint the Americans as bad people,and President Trump as some kind of Dolt.
            I really take offense when people take the Veterans for granted. Especially the one that served up to a period of the Viet Nam War.President Ford and Jimmy Carter started it with their amnesty programs for draft dodgers. About this time there was a conscious shift in the attitudes of the public towards veterans and not for the good.
            Today the forces are volunteer, but more so the enlisted are cannon fodder for the elites psychopathic need to kill.
            People’s attitudes have changed but we must never forget the brave men and women that hung their asses out there for our freedom.

            I fully understand that our elected leaders have defrauded us at times,I am not ignorant to this.I also know the financial system is run by those that do not have our best interests at mind.

            I don’t make the rules,I just play the game. Complaining and whining accomplishes nothing.Trying to figure out who is responsible is an effort in futility. In the word of Mick Jaeger”I shouted out who killed the Kennedy’s and after all it was you and I “

            Good response JohnK, and I completely understand the desire to chime in when people say ignorant things, but when people discuss politics as armchair quarterbacks, most of the time a slurry of ignorant comments will surface. Sometimes those turn into large rabbit holes of arguing and trolling each other, and it brings little to no value to an investing blog. They often have 0 tie in to macro economic sector, and it is just people dumping their neurosis-filled ideas onto page about how their view is better than the politicians or they play the blame game disparaging everyone in charge or previous administrations (like that is going to make any difference??)

            Yes, I also am very tired of people from many other countries constantly knocking the USA and the people in our country, since there is a diverse populace and just like everything else, people are not portrayed accurately in the media or movies.

            The ironic part of this is that America has developed the systems and processes for them to bitch and complain from the electric grid that powers their gadgets, to the laptop computer or smart phone in their hands and the social media platform they are using.

            As critics drive around in their cars or fly from place to place in an airplane (that people in the USA invented) they’ll pass the time throwing stones at the country that has most shaped the last Century, forgetting how many advancements in medicine, technology, industry, etc.. came out of this “terrible” country full of “stupid Americans” that changed the world forever.

            You have to expect that people will be critical of the world superpower, for better or for worse. For example, they don’t spend all day pointing out the imbecile policies or stupid people in so many countries in South America, Africa, the Middle East or ex Soviet territories, because those don’t really move the global stage. The US has been and still is the prime mover.
            The Dollar, for now, is still the world’s reserve currency, and until that changes (which it is starting to evolve) then the greenback is the measuring stick {along with Gold of course}. The rise of China and India and Brazil are all very important to the global economy but right now, their currencies are not what moves the engine of the world economic health.

            As for elected leaders defrauding the people this is nothing new, and not unique to the United States of America. It has happened in all countries and throughout time.

            One observation: If it weren’t for the rampant militarism, people would be much more acknowledging of America’s contributions. Worldwide admiration for America has diminished substantially since 9/11. There’s something about mass slaughter that makes the rest seem insignificant.

    How valuable is Artemis ? ARV.AX ARTTF

    I believe a lot of retail investors overlook some basic points about Artemis (Note: I picked up some more ARTTF shares on the OTC during yesterday’s trading).

    I have strong opinions about the direction that DL is taking the company, but this post is going to focus on the value of Artemis.

    ARV has a market cap of approx. $100mil. $20mil of those dollars can be allocated to the 4mil NVO shares that DL negotiated as payment from NVO for the JV agreement. That leaves $80mil dollars (regardless on how many shares) as the true market value of the ARV resources.

    So basically, the Market is pricing in $80mil as the value of ALL Artemis resources – proven and speculative.

    Novo Resources is all about gold – it’s a pure play. At this point, everything about NVO is 100% speculative, and the market is pricing it at close to $1billion.

    No matter what an investor thinks of DL and his stewardship (which many of us have differing opinions), I cannot see anything but table-pounding value in Artemis Resources. The valuations between NVO and ARV could not be more extreme, and frankly this discrepency in value cannot last.

    Now some may argue that DL’s management is the liability. Fair enough. But never forget that the 38 JV tenements are 100% under the management of QH. This is a major risk reduction to the ARV story.

    And some of us cannot be the only ones that have noticed. QH is on the war path exploring for gold in both the NVO lands and JV lands. What he finds will be the flashpoint that either drives the whole world into the Pilbara, or destroys these investments. Of course I expect a positive outcome to occur, but if exploration does unfortunately disprove Wits-2 , then it will be NVO that has the greatest fall.

    Therefore, I see the least risks and most value in Artemis at this point.

      But I own shares bought at $.07 for the same reason. It’s not a long term hold, it’s a trade but they will move up 300% faster than Novo making the next 300% move.

          Novo needs Artemis like they need a case of the clap. I don’t ever seen Novo taking a run at Artemis and it’s not something I have ever discussed with management. All Artemis has proven is that they are a bad partner. Novo has 100% owned ground, 80% owned ground and 50% owned ground. Where would you put your emphasis?

          Quinton proved his theory years ago. The “Buckshot” pyrite is classic Wits and exists nowhere else that I have ever seen. The gold in the Pilbara Basin was precipitated out of salt water in the presence of oxygen and carbon. But there is probably more in the Pilbara than in the Wits.

    Trump Blasts Warriors Star Stephen Curry: “Your White House Invitation Has Been Withdrawn”

    The Golden State Warriors won another NBA Championship in June – their second in three years – defeating perennial rivals the Cleveland Cavaliers and cementing the team’s legacy as the best professional NBA franchise in recent memory. But since clinching the championship trophy, a dark cloud has been hanging over the Warriors: The traditional visit to the White House. Since June, it’s been unclear if the team would accept the invitation because of Curry and Co’s well-publicized distaste for the president. Finally, the ambiguity was put to rest on Friday, when Curry revealed that he would like the team to decline their invitation, saying he’d like to “inspire some change in terms of what we can tolerate in this country” by standing up to the Trump Administration.

    Needless to say, President Trump was displeased, and in a classic Donald Trump Saturday morning tweetstorm, the president blasted the star point guard for “hesitating” to accept the White House’s invitation, before adding that Curry’s invite had been “withdrawn”:

    “Being invited to the White House is considered a great honor,” Trump tweeted. “Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn.” As the Associated Press pointed out, it isn’t immediately clear if Trump rescinded the invitation to Curry, or the entire team.

        Here is why:

        Gary Wagner – September 22, 2017 – #TechnicalAnalysis #VIDEO #Charts #Gold

        —————————————————————————————-
        Investors that are in any way worried that Gold is under too much pressure, should take a step back and watch this video with Gary Wagner.

        The 5 wave EW pattern that started in the Summer Doldrums has had Wave 1 up, Wave 2 down, Wave 3 up, and we just concluded Wave 4 down. This will be followed by a 5th Wave up that should test last years high at $1377.50 (he projects near $1380).

            It may be that $1377.50 (the high from 2016) swats Gold back down on the first attempt, but if when that level is taken out, and heads towards $1392 and the round $1400 then more money will come into the sector that is sitting on the sidelines.

            The miners will start to get much peppier at those levels as well.

    Blowback? – Mizzou Enrollment Tumbles To Lowest Since 2008

    Amid ongoing fallout from the negative media attention and student (and faculty) protests that rocked campus in 2015, the University of Missouri recently welcomed its smallest student body since 2008, with enrollment down about 33% from its peak in 2015.

    Fed unwinding balance sheet and hiking rates one more time in 2017? So there is a bit of a change in the Fed speak to a more hawkish tone, rather a less dovish tone, also with lowish reported inflation for the second half od this year near target (according to BLS).

    Gold has already dipped down to around $1290 already.

    It will be interesting to see if the news hasd just taken gold already down to support and the news is baked in but I am not sure. This seems a bit of a turn on a dime because people seemed to be looking at the Fed as being really dovish in the last couple of months until last week.

    It is interesting that nearly all of the Fed tightening and potentially dumping some US Treasuries is coming now Trump iis in office!

    Bob Hoye would probably say flattening yield curve then reversing to steepening is sign of credit crisis or recession/depression at hand, so there is probably a while to go yet as the curve is only justr flattening right now.

            I’ll make a stab at it, CFS, though I’m no master of the topic.

            The US gave a lot of military aid to Egypt to bribe them into being a good neighbor to Israel.

            Saudi Arabia is a special case. Kissinger cut the petrodollar deal with them in the 70s. If you believe William Engdahl, the Muslim Brotherhood fled Egypt to Saudi Arabia in the mid-20th century, and today’s S. Arabia is the result of this union between Wahhabi sect of Islam with the Muslim Brotherhood. They have been useful partners to the US and Israel. If they hadn’t been, we would have taken them out. Eventually they will most likely be taken out, but until then they are necessary allies.

            If we’re trying to understand the relationship the US and Israel have with Saudi Arabia, then understanding the Muslim Brotherhood and the role they play in the region is important. It’s certainly relevant to look at what role they played 35 years ago. Wow, what a coincidence that they were fulfilling the same role back then as the ‘moderate rebels’, Al-Nusra, and ISIS are playing today. I.e. they were serving Israel.

            Israel wants Syria broken so that Iranian support cannot reach Hizbollah, so that Israel can take southern Lebanon. The Yinon Plan.

            Can you point to any actions that the Wahabbi/Muslim Brotherhood regime of Saudi Arabia committed against Israel? It seems to me they have served the US & Israeli purpose.

            Today, we know that Hillary Clinton’s intimate confidante Huma Abedin’s mother was or is high in the Muslim Brotherhood hierarchy. We also know that Hillary was aware that while the Clinton Foundation was receiving millions from Saudi Arabia, so was ISIS.

            I don’t imagine there is any love lost between Saudi Arabia and Israel, but it appears to me that they are allies of convenience for the moment who will likely eventually turn on each other.

        I agree Al. I’m definitely not one to make a blanket condemnation of Jews, or of any ethnic group.

        Trying to figure out the true power structure in the world, and the drivers behind current events, be it finance, media (of all sorts), the cultural wars like communism/socialism, feminism and LGBT, multiculturalism, one always finds ‘Jews’ in the thick of it in spite of being only about 2%-3% of the US population.

        It is undeniable that they are inordinately represented in all the institutions of power that are steering the US to disaster.

        But this doesn’t mean all or most Jews are responsible. It’s a multi-ethnic mafia made up of the western World’s most powerful people, with highly disproportionate representation of fake Jews. I say fake because this mafia is Satanic in nature, and they just wrap themselves in the Jewish identity to shield themselves from criticism.

        That may sound crazy. I never looked in the direction of the occult, or the Illuminati until wikileaks came out with Podesta and spirit cooking. It was just too far out. But once you start looking into it, there are just too many inconvenient facts pointing in the direction of my conclusion. It’s a pretty terrifying reality, actually.

            How is it that Prince Charles was such good friends with notorious pedophile Jimmy Saville? There is zero chance Charles did not know, unless one believes the British Royals have incompetent security.

            Why are there occult symbols on the dollar bill, built into the very structure of DC, and at the UN? It’s rather odd that the White House sits at the lower tip of an inverted pentagram that is unmistakable in the street layout of DC.

Just as is their bizarre art collection, like the bronze statue duplicating one of Jeffrey Dahmer’s decapitated and contorted victims.

            But then there is the matter of the code words in his communications. I haven’t yet heard any other plausible explanation for these code words than pedophilia. Anyone?? There is something going on here, and we have not yet gotten to the bottom of it. Until we do, I’m not going to assume the obvious conclusion is not the correct one.

            From there, one might wonder about other cases of alleged pedophile rings in the US. There is the famous Franklin/Boys Town scandal, but there are also many others. The funny thing about all these cases in spite of compelling evidence, the investigations always fizzle out.

            It’s not about having use for Podesta. It’s about whether or not we are under the control of leadership that is much darker and more evil than virtually any of us ever guessed. Wikileaks on Podesta and Spirit Cooking opened my eyes to that possibility, and it explains a lot of things that otherwise are hard to make sense of.

            The US is certainly not controlled by Americans in some acceptable approximation of democracy or constitutional republic. Rather, it is controlled by a small handful of special interests. Key among those interests are the Zionists and Cultural Marxists.

            Do you think one minuscule group can control the finance and information in a society without dominating that society? There’s really no debate about who controls these institutions.

            If things were going wonderfully in general, I wouldn’t have a beef with it. But frankly, I can’t think of any two institutions that have done more damage to the America that I grew up believing in, and to the world in general.

            It’s amazing how we can normalize just about anything.

            I’ve never spoken with anyone, personally, who has put any real effort into studying 9/11 without concluding we have been fed a pack of lies.

            This pack of lies was fed to us by the GW Bush administration, chock-full of Zionists (both Jewish and Gentile Zionists). It was reinforced by a media, owned by Jewish Zionists.

            And it was used to justify wars that have killed millions, and wounded and displaced tens of millions. Wars planned by Zionists, in their Plan for a New American Century.

            This pack of lies has also been used to severely curtail the Constitutional rights that we supposedly hold so dear.

            Yet we’re not even looking for the actual culprits of 9/11, and we are continuing the military and domestic repression agendas started with it!

            Truly, it is an insane tale told for idiots. Any honest investigator would consider the Zionists to be prime suspects for 9/11. But people respond as if that is beyond the pale. Why?

            So my reaction is mixed to your statement, Al, that, “My personal opinion at this moment in time is that America has definitely made mistakes in the past. Is it on a difference track now under the current administration? I would like to think so.”

            I would like to think so too, and I have mostly defended Trump, saying let’s wait and see (still better than HRC!). I also believe that, especially in politics, one needs to allow for the possibility of change and not hang on to grudges that are no longer relevant.

            And yet. How would you feel if the millions of dead, wounded, and displaced were Canadians, Australians, and New Zealanders? Or the US? Can you put yourself in the shoes of the tens of millions of people whose lives have been devastated by the clique still in power in the US? Whole countries destroyed, for what? Would you find Trump’s or the US’s actions to date reassuring in any way?

            We should neither forget nor forgive heinous acts that have in no way been atoned or compensated. Trump went to the UN the other day and stood reality on its head, utterly. How reassuring is a complete falsification, no matter how pretty?

            You’re right that so far the harm caused by Trump does not compare to his predecessors. But other than his rhetoric, which has proven to be extremely unreliable (regarding criminal Hillary, for instance, he was a shameless liar), what reason do we think he won’t measure up to the others in time? Why is he surrounded by people like Mad Dog Mattis, Mnuchin, and Ross? Why is he surrounded by Zionists, who have driven the US in a disastrous direction for decades now? Who are the decent people in his circle?

            Meanwhile Trump’s fake critics from the illiberal Left, the Neocons, and the MIC attack him non-stop on everything except the real concerns. The real risk is that Trump appears to be too cozy with the financial sector, the MIC, and the Zionists, and if we’re not vigilant they’ll slip us another poison pill.

            Time will tell. Let’s see what he does with Syria, Iran, and the next financial crisis.

Sure, some deus ex machina might save us from the world they’re building, but what? You don’t have a cashless society with 100% surveillance without it turning totalitarian. Impossible. At least, that’s my belief.

            Nothing is forever, but the power of the totalitarian regime they are forming will be vastly more difficult to shake than they already are.

            Or who knows? Maybe China will save us by tying the yuan to gold and oil? Obviously I don’t!

      Trump has flaws. He is, however, reasonably intelligent, as evidenced by his career in real estate. I personally believe the US Presidency is probably too great a job for any one human being. One can but hope that any President gathers around himself the best possible advisers and learns to delegate some of the less important decisions.

            Al, the same criticism you have for Obama applies to Trump. Many Americans want to see Trump’s tax returns but obviously Trump thinks he’s not obligated.

            Why? I suspect some or all of the following:

            1) He doesn’t people to see how relatively little he gives to charity
            2) How little he pays in taxes
            3) Maybe his companies aren’t as successful and profitable as he claims
            4) or that his claim that his net worth is about $10 billion is exaggerated

    How does Trump’s behavior represent Judeo-Christian values? I’m referring to his arrogance, the way he likes to boast about this and that, his frequent degrading of others who oppose him, and his dishonesty.

        Guys Trump does not suffer from narcissism (that’s Obama’s problem). Trump has a monumental ego and it remains to be seen whether he represents Judaeo-Christian values or not. For it’s still early days for the ‘art of the deal’ specialist. Besides, if he’s undergoing a Christian conversion which many believers attest to his ‘arrogance’ may yet be used in the divine plan.

          > On April 9, 2016 at 6:53 am,
          Excelsior says:

          “Rick Rule is one of my favorite speakers and I have all the respect in the world for his experience, knowledge and guidance. However, I take everything and expert says with a grain of salt.

          “As for the Lithium space I’d beg to differ on a few points, but do agree that 80% of the companies jumping on board the trend are marketing fluff and sham. However, there are legitimate companies in the space that have weathered the storm and are moving into production. So like in the JR explorers it is crucial to separate the real companies from the nonsense. I’m going to re-post what I wrote to CFS late last night:”

          “I’ve been following the Lithium space since about 2011 and caught part of the last bubble, but it was a much different space back then and a lot of the hot air left when the sector got decimated. (I would add that lot of hot air has also returned 🙂 )

          When you see companies switch from rare earths over to lithium or graphite switching over to lithium then they are just the trend followers and will likely switch camps again. (stay away from those) It is like when many of the JR gold miners switched over to pot stocks and biotech when the air went out of the balloon. Many of the surviving companies have merged with 2 or 3 other other companies, and gotten their permits, and are finally developing REAL projects.”

          Where I would disagree with Rick Rule’s sweeping comment that the Lithium space is a sham is that the market has also seen Lithium companies finally make it into PRODUCTION to prove it is not just hype or a dream.

          – Talison Lithium went into production first and I held it back in 2012 and 2013 before it got taken private. I did very well on Talison Lithium, and they are still producing so they were not a sham.

          – Next came along Orocobre (OROCF), and when they made it into production last year, then that really got the wheels turning. Orocobre continues to expand production, is a viable company and is not a sham.

          – Now this month Galaxy Resources ((GALXF) has just gone into commercial production {obviously not a sham}. I have been investing in Galaxy for years now, so it is nice to see the marketplace finally assigning some value to these producing mines.”

          * Galaxy resources built the most advanced Lithium processing facility and Battery Plant in the world. Unfortunately they developed it in 2012-2013 when the Lithium market fell apart, they had an employeed death right after turning on the plant, and that tragedy shut them down for too long, and they ran into financial issues as a result.”

          “So in 2014 Galaxy Resources announced that they were selling the Jiangsu Lithium Carbonate plant in China to Sichuan Tianqi Lithium Industries Inc and wrapped that transaction up in 2015. Once they had the money from that sale they have focused on their assets acquired from Lithium One and now they are in production. That is a real success story, and I would disagree greatly that they are a “sham”.

          “Lithium Americas (LACDF) (previously Western Lithium) – If SQM (Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile SA) is doing this 50/50 JV with them, then I have to believe they are eyeballing Lithium Americas for a potential takeover down the road. SQM is one of the 3 primary producers of Lithium on Planet Earth, so I HIGHLY DOUBT that they would partner up with a “Sham.”

          In addition, Lithium Americas currently produces lithium carbonate and Organoclay Hectatone for industrial and commercial purposes and has revenues being generated. So obviously, not a sham….”

          “As for the LITHIUM DEMAND – these stocks will be supplying the ever burgeoning battery markets and energy storage markets, so there is much more upside for Lithium demand than analysts even have accurate models for. They tend to get fixated on electric cars & electric trucks, but they neglect to cover the huge impact backup batteries have on storing Solar & Wind power, or the smartphone/laptop/tablet marketplace, or airlines, or tow-motors and forklifts in warehousing, and on and on….”

          “As a result, I still don’t feel some of these stocks are even 5-10 times what they will be in 2-3 years. I already have a 7 bagger in Galaxy Resources and it has much further to run and is just starting to stretch its legs. I anticipate Lithium Americas going up multiple fold in the next few years, and we may be short-term overbought, but we’re nowhere close to parabolic yet.”

          >> On April 10, 2016 at 9:34 pm,
          Paul W says:

          “I wouldn’t touch a lithium stock with a ten foot pole. It seems to me over-hyped on unsound fundamentals just like graphite was a few years ago. Rick Rule is a wise man who calls it like it is and said Lithium was a big pump job and will go bust last December. His comments could be prophetic…”

          > On April 9, 2016 at 7:28 pm,
          Excelsior says:

          “I think it is this kind of “piling on” into a hot story that puts too many cooks in the kitchen and is why Rick Rule and John Kaiser felt the space was a sham and hype.”

          “I would agree with Rick that for the other 23 exploration companies in this second Lithium bubble that it is very likely a long shot for most of them to ever make it to production or get mines permitted or built. It is very likely this boom will carry on for 1-2 years with about a half dozen companies making it into production, with pricing settling back down a bit from where it is today and that will likely be that until the Lithium Battery marketplace proves it is here to stay.”

          _______________________________________________

          (BTW – RR was dead wrong on this one and not prophetic and most of those companies mentioned continued higher and have pulled back some but recently started their next leg higher. The demand for Battery tech components like Lithium, Cobalt, Manganese, Nickel, and Copper have only surged even higher over the last year and half since that editorial).

    Gary Savage thinks gold will give a failed daily cycle to head into an intermediate cycle low. I’m not convinced, but will be on the lookout for the possibility.

      Good chart GH. Looks like if the backtest of that larger trend-line holds that yes it would be time to bounce.

            Yes, it was a beautiful car….they started making replicas of that model …Elite Motor in Wisc. or Minn., back in the 70’s…..they took the original panels from the old factory, and constructed the car very close to the original. Seems like the car was a little shorter than original but still was a nice replica…, I have seen a few replicas at some of the auctions I have attended…..But, The real baby was sweet, a real head turner…..

    The sad political story is that you can be an able economist and leader of men in public crises, when the tide turns against you and mob psychology rules, even the best of us forget our optimism and get blamed for lack of foresight, leadership and common sense. Trump who started his Presidential term is finding himself so embattled that he must be thinking at times he should not have chosen to run for President. I am thinking that like Calvin Coolidge is it really worth the headaches of trying to run again. DT

    Hey Ex. Yamana gave an update today that included some info on malartic. The CMC exploration team is working in conjunction with the CMGP to refine internal zone grade shells for use in Inferred Mineral Resource estimation, which is to be completed by the end of 2017……also said..Drilling has identified multiple gold-bearing structural corridors in a variety of complex and intersecting structural orientations within Porphyry 12 (Figure 10). These mineralized corridors have been defined using a combination of geology, alteration envelopes, oriented core structural data and assay data. Internal zone intercepts typically range from 5.0-30.0 metres drill width at 1.5 – 3.0 g/t Au, commonly with multiple intercepts per hole. Significantly higher grade zones have been intersected locally, ranging from 1.0-12.0 metres drill widths at 4.0 to +50.0 g/t Au (uncut) and additional work is underway to evaluate the continuity of these zones.
