More Market Shakiness With Metals Buying Time

Another volatile week for US equity markets when the metals sector more or less yawns at the moves. More tariff and trade wars talk but when you dig down the dollar amount is less than a rounding error. There was also continued weakness in the tech sector with questions continuing to mount focused on privacy. We touch on all of these topics on this week’s show.

Thanks you to everyone for tuning in this weekend! Please email me directly (Fleck@kereport.com) with any stocks or comments you would like to hear some comments on. For all the golfers out there, I hope you enjoy the Master!

  • Segment 1: Bryon King kicks off the show with the comment that majors cutting costs do not help grow the overall sector.
  • Segment 2: John Kaiser sheds some light on the diamond sector and how the blockchain technology could provide some comfort for investors and consumers.
  • Segment 3: With funding for resource companies at low levels we get an update from a Company that is cashed up and just closed an oversubscribed financing. Walter Coles, CEO and President of Skeena Resources joins me to outline the Phase 2 drill program that is underway.
  • Segment 4: Jesse Felder wraps up the show with a look at the tech sector and how Facebook and Amazon could have their underlying business models upended with regulations.
  • Segment 5: Dr. Jerome Corsi again discusses his book which has become a bestseller Killing The Deep State the Fight to Save President Trump.

        Al, thanks for bringing Dr. Corsi back. I can’t wait for Obama, Susan Rice, the Clintons, Lynch, Mueller, Comey, et al to be executed for high treason. I quit Facebook long ago and have never used a cell phone or Twitter. All I know is what I read at Breitbart, Drudge report, Fox news, WSJ, and the kereport. I saw Sec. of State James Baker in the park yesterday. I almost asked him if he had seen the photo of George H.W. Bush standing in front of the Texas State School Depository at the moment JFK was shot. Some say Bush was part of E.Howard Hunt’s CIA hit squad in Dallas that day. The deep state took out JFK. Bush was made director of the CIA by gerald Ford and is a deep sate creature, which is why he voted for Hillary and calls Bill Clinton his son. Let’s pray the deep state does not take out Trump.

    This is going to come as a shock but even some Jews are starting to recognize what cold blooded murder on the part of the IDF looks like.

      And for everyone else on the board who lack the balls to speak up in the face of evil.

      If Israel gets away with shooting 750 unarmed peaceful protestors in one day, just what do you think is going to happen in the first peaceful protest in the US a day after the banks close?

      Israel is sending a message. If you don’t think it is aimed at you, you are wrong.

        Big Al says:

        Morning Bob,

        I do appreciate your on-going comments. In the example you gave above, it is difficult to rationalize the action that you are referring to.

        • On April 7, 2018 at 9:10 am,
          Robert Moriarty says:

          For all practical purposes, if Adelson says the capital of Israel moves to Jerusalem, it moves to Jerusalem, if he says the peace process is dead, it is dead. If he says shooting 750 people in the back running from you is ok, what is Trump going to do when the US has large peaceful protests.

          Frankly in my lifetime I cannot recall 750 protestors ever being shot in one day.

          • On April 7, 2018 at 9:17 am,
            Al Korelin says:

            Actually, I cannot either.

            Regarding the longevity of the peace process, the only comment that I can make is that I certainly hope that it is not dead. But, then again it is very tenuous at this moments in time and that is perhaps my understatement of the day.

            I would appreciate some comments from the other folks on our site today.

            I think there is a bit of a misunderstanding, wouldnt surprise me if Bob and others have noticed it and just havnt said anything, or maybe I missed it.

            imo the misunderstanding comes in the belief a peace process is actually happening. or, was ever happening, maybe with Arafat around but from what I can tell, its simply been a genocide.

            Slowly with alot of BS thrown in so the supporters of Israel can delude themselves into a clear conscience.

        Just out of curiosity, what odds do you give of the bank closures in the near future.

        I personally, have enough faith in what is happening currently in the economy of our country that this even will not happen on a very large scale.

        • On April 7, 2018 at 10:20 am,
          Robert Moriarty says:


          It should have happened 10 years ago. We had a conversation and I said they were 15 minutes from collapse and in retrospect we learned that I was pretty close. We don’t know when, we just know what.

          But getting away with murder does nothing but encourage more and I am staggered by the lack of comment by any of the “leaders.”

          • On April 7, 2018 at 11:34 am,
            Big Al says:

            You make a good point regard the”lack of commitment.

            Regarding the banks,10 years ago was 10 years ago and today is today We have an interesting economicenvironment currently if the satistics are to be believed. Perhaps a closureof the banks is now less than it was in the past.

      From the article:

      “The American Jewish love affair with Israel is over. We are going to see more and more outright signs of the breakup in the discourse and in our politics too in coming years.”

      About time. But it’s just a start of a much larger, needed process. What do I mean? See my posts at the link below.

      Al, I replied in depth to your query yesterday.

        Even the criminal Jewish element will disavow and distance themselves from this, because they really don’t want to attract so much attention that more people start getting curious about real Jewish history versus criminal Jews’ propaganda..

            Canada – Canadian
            Israel – Isralie

            The religion you choose to practice or were born into – same thing.
            Judaism – Jew
            Catholicism – Catholic

          For those who might think my reaction is over the top, here are some thoughts from someone else.

          Government can’t keep spending the way it is, but they can’t cut the spending for fear of violent revolt.

          It seems an impossible quandary; but government figured out a solution: WAR.

          If the US can get into a M A J O R war – perhaps even a short nuclear war — the fighting would kill-off large numbers of these cash hand-out recipients!

          If the cash handout recipients are DEAD, they don’t have to get paid anymore ! ! ! !

          That’s why we see the US picking a fight with both Russia and now, China. The government NEEDS a big war to kill-off the “useless eaters.”

          Now, in a big war, what are the first big targets? Cities.

          And where are the largest numbers of people getting free cash handouts and benefits? Cities!

          So if we start a war which gets several large cities nuked, the number of people paid by government drops suddenly and dramatically. Even better, with so many cities smashed to hell, the government can turn to creditors and say “Sorry, we can’t pay you back the $21 TRILLION – we have no hope of doing it, so write-off all that debt! The Creditors would have no choice. Problem solved.

          You folks who are on welfare and the like, and who live in major cities, should prepare for YOUR end. Your government has to kill you because they can’t afford to pay for you to live and eat on their money anymore.

            A few of my own thoughts along the same lines from the other day:

            On April 5, 2018 at 2:16 pm,
            GH says:

            Is the onslaught on Gaza intended to incite hatred for Israel?

            The puppet masters seem to be orchestrating a global conflict, whipping up tensions between the US/NATO and Russia; creating global hatred for the US because of its constant warfare, reinforced by Hollywood’s portrayal of its racism and white supremacism; equally, generating hatred for Israel through its perennial criminality; fomenting Islamic terrorism and igniting the Islamic world in war…

            The Skripal incident, with all of the spiralling diplomatic repercussions? A transparent farce that a 10-year-old could see through, for what?

            William Engdahl expressed the belief that Trump was put into office to put the US on a war footing, because it is currently not capable of winning a war with Russia or China. But is the intent to win the war? The US has been looted, and also seems unlikely ever to submit to gun control. So Americans can’t be slaughtered the way they were in Russia or China…but they may need slaughtering, if the NWO is to be put in place. If so, a civil war or a war with Russia or China could serve the purpose.

            With Bolton in place, has there ever been a better setup for just blundering into a devastating conflict? Given Putin’s many years of impeccable conduct (as far as I know, notwithstanding Western media lies), if he is finally goaded into response by some outrageous US act, and it escalates, who will blame Russia? And given the new weapon systems Russia has developed, how will it work out for the US?

            Is Putin the stable, responsible statesman that he appears? The USA better hope so, because if he is a deep-cover representative of the globalist/communist/judeo-masonic mafia, then the US is in very big trouble.

            America is sleep-walking into disaster.

            On the other hand, if Putin is what he seems, then the aforesaid mafia must be terrified.

            Secrecy and deception may be their most powerful weapon, but with the advent of the internet their multi-century crime-spree is becoming obvious to more and more people.

            One way or another, things are coming to a head. I’ll say by the bottom of the US dollar cycle, ~2025.

            I imagine the insanity and deception will only continue to escalate. Those preaching hatred, whatever the direction, will be part of the problem, not the solution. Rooting out the criminals, and destroying the systems of control and exploitation that they have built, has to be the goal.

            But those who own the arms companies? Those who finance them and the wars they are used in? The media that promotes it all?

            What the nature of the conflict will be, I don’t know. But they are clearly stirring it up, surely to further increase their power.

            “Why of course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don’t want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or fascist dictorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peace makers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”
            ~Hermann Goering

            –To be perfectly clear, it seems to me that a rabid strain of globalists is looking to promote global conflict in order to take advantage of the resulting chaos to usher in their NWO, with digital cash, total surveillance, militarized police, etc.

        I just spent a fair amount of time going over you comments of yesterday. A lot of interesting material there.

        GH, between you and Bob, I am starting to examine this situation much more closely than I have in the past.

        We are at a very precarious point in our history as exemplified by Michelle Obama’s comment identifying people who voted for Trump. (I found her comments to be very hateful and short sighted.

        GH, we are definitely in a struggle for the continuation of our way of life. I view this struggle as truly being “good vs. evil” As a white Christian, i am being painted as an evil person who is not a Christian who follows the commandments of Jesus (The Proclamation of the KIngdom is a great example) but who is an “insane Catholic who follows only the edicts of the Pope)

        I am really sick and tired of being mislabeled by folks like Michelle Obama and many white progressives.

        We must not lose this civil war. The stakes are simply too high.

            Interestingly enough Jerry, I am currently involved in a very serious study of Revelation with my Bible Study Group. I have read the next and am immersed in the Study Guide.

            This study certainly does give me optimism.

            Big Al says:

            Perfectly appropriate for me to answer your question because we discuss that topiic constantly. All of us have read The Old Testament and we all respect the views of religous Jews. Notice that I said religous Jews.

            We respectfully disagee with the Jewish faith because we do belive that the Mesiah has come.

            Many of the principals disussed by Jesus do appy to many non Chrstians. For example “The Proclamation of the Kingdom”. “Love your God above all else and love your neighbor as you love yourself”

        • On April 7, 2018 at 10:37 am,
          GH says:

          I agree, Al.

          A few final thoughts.

          1) Studying, uncovering the true narrative of the past couple centuries is key to preservation of our culture. Letting the mass media define it–and warp it–for us, is insanity.

          2) I believe there is a war against all of us, as I say waged by a mafia that blends into Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, atheism, etc. Their modus operandi is to get us all blaming each other. So I say that in the growing crisis, those that preach hatred, no matter in which direction, will be part of the problem, not the solution. But likewise, so will be those who advocate letting bygones be bygones for criminals.

            If you have ever read Revelation, it would be obvious to you that the other side is represented by the “forces of evil” and that God (Goodness and Love) will win in the end.

      I have to agree with the majority there–Weiss is dreaming. The Israelis have been committing atrocities for decades. So for those pundits and media outlets who just now are starting to speak out are far more likely to be doing so as damage control, than out of any sincere change of heart.

      Still, fear of a backlash is useful, too. If more people would speak out, a solution could be found.

          “Princes had, so to speak, turned violence into a physical thing but our democratic republics have made it into something as intellectual as the human will it intends to restrict. Under the absolute government of one man, despotism, in order to attack the spirit, crudely struck the body and the spirit escaped free of its blows, rising gloriously above it. But in democratic republics, tyranny does not behave in that manner; it leaves the body alone and goes straight to the spirit. No longer does the master say: “You will think as I do or you will die”; he says: “You are free not to think like me, your life, your property, everything will be untouched but from today you are a pariah among us. You will retain your civic privileges but they will be useless to you, for if you seek the votes of your fellow citizen, they will not grant you them and if you simply seek their esteem, they will pretend to refuse you that too. You will retain your place amongst men but you will lose the rights of mankind. When you approach your fellows, they will shun you like an impure creature; and those who believe in your innocence will be the very people to abandon you lest they be shunned in their turn. Go in peace; I grant you your life but it is a life worse than death.”

    A Hot Mess

    by @Goldfinger on April 5, 2018

    “The GDXJ is essentially unchanged since the open on November 25th, 2016 – the sector has just experienced more volatility including 3 sizable rallies and 3 equally sizable declines during this 16 month time period.”

    “Trying to make sense of the market’s day-to-day gyrations (particularly in the junior gold mining sector) is a fool’s errand, and about the only market timing tool which has worked well in the miners recently is to play sentiment extremes i.e. buy when sentiment is extremely depressed and sell when sentiment is becoming overheated.”

    “At this point I’d agree with Bogle that the daily motions of the junior gold miners are like a tale told by an idiot, we’re just missing the sound and fury part…”

            From the Next Bull Market Move interview above with Rick Rule:


            NBMM – “I have a few quotes from Benjamin Graham that I’d like your opinion on.”

            RR – “Please note that I’m pre disposed to fan boy reactions when it comes to Ben Graham.”

            * “The intelligent investor is a realist who sells to optimists and buys from pessimists.” – Benjamin Graham

            RR- “Perhaps a little cynical, albeit not wholly inaccurate. Graham himself focused on absolute value, and often bought companies that were so illiquid that there was seldom anyone to sell too.”

            * “Investing isn’t about beating others at their game. It’s about controlling yourself at your own game.” – Benjamin Graham

            RR – “This goes to investing discipline, and the triumph of process over emotion. Understanding your own durable competitive advantage, in the same way that you understand the value thesis offered up by the companies you invest in is the ultimate determinant of your success.”

            * “The stock investor is neither right or wrong because others agreed or disagreed with him; he is right because his facts and analysis are right.” – Benjamin Graham

            RR – “More often than not, a better entry point is obtained by being right when others are wrong, or when they just don’t care.”

            NBMM – “Your current thoughts on Gold and the junior Gold mining stocks?”

            RR – “Gold performed well in 2017, and importantly did so when confidence was high and volatility low. If those circumstances were to change, gold might reasonably expected to do very well. Looking a bit longer term, my thesis is that the US treasury market bull run has topped out, which could be very bullish for gold. The gold stocks under performed in 2017, mostly I believe, because they out performed the year before.”

            “Most people forget that bull markets are the authors of bear markets, and vice versa. My belief is that gold equities will have a good year this year, both because the metal has done fairly well, and also because expectations surrounding the gold equities is so negative.”

        • On April 7, 2018 at 10:35 am,
          Excelsior says:

          Agreed. A number of midtiers have been doing well since the Dec 2017 breakout at the end of tax loss on the FOMC rate hike day. Companies like Resolute Mining, Teranga Gold, Superior Gold, Northern Star, St Barbara, Perseus, etc…. have been steadily climbing while many investors moan about gloom and doom in the sector.

          This is the whole point about being diversified into different sub-sectors and then when one outperforms, one can trim profits and invest more into the one’s that may have under-performed for their eventual catch up.

      • On April 7, 2018 at 9:46 am,
        GH says:

        Likewise, GDXJ looks good vs gold:


        I’m expecting a tradeworthy bounce here, at least, though I still think the entry for the Big One is more likely mid-summer for a fall takeoff.

      (JAG) (JAGGF) Jaguar production remains static despite progress

      By: Richard Quarisa – March 29, 2018

      “If you turn back the clock a little over two years, the mine itself had no less than 50,000 ounces in reserves and little to no mineral resource runway in front of it,” Jaguar CEO Rodney Lamond says in a telephone interview with The Northern Miner.

      “Jaguar then began exploring the downward plunging extension of its known orebody at Pilar. Its work led to a 227% increase in its measured resource and a 104% increase in its inferred resource. As of December 2017, Pilar contains 974,000 proven and probable tonnes grading 3.99 grams gold per tonne for 125,000 oz. gold. It also contains 3.7 million measured and indicated tonnes grading 4.37 grams gold for 532,000 oz. gold with another 2.3 million inferred tonnes grading 5.69 grams gold for 433,000 oz. gold.”

I have a nice position in Jaguar that I’ve been building on since late 2015 and early 2016 and have swing traded around the position selling the rips and buying the dips since then. If it pulls back down in the high $.20’s I’ll definitely be adding as well, because they have really done a great job of turning around the Exploration work to feed their mines and extend the mine life as well as reduce their costs, and fundamentally they are one of the most under-rated mining Mid-Tiers. Also the putting Roca Grande on care and maintenance is really a good thing as they are going to do exploration work around it and optimize that mine to bring it back into production like they just did with Pillar and Turmalina. They also still have their Paciência Gold Mine Complex on care and maintenance to work on optimizing after that. Lots of future value drivers to play out as Gold prices rise later this year and into next year.

    Price Discovery in Bitcoin

    April 7, 2018 – by Ben Carlson

    “While institutional asset allocators still haven’t warmed up to the idea of investing in crypto, the big change that happened in December was the rollout of futures trading.”

    “It’s uncanny how the start of a futures market in this space coincided with the peak of the price following the holiday surge in November and December:”
    The prevailing wisdom at the time was that futures trading was going to be the catalyst for the next leg higher. But before futures were available there was no simple way for traders to short bitcoin.”

    “Short sellers often get a bad rap but they play an integral role in the functioning of the markets. They help set prices. They call out fraud situations. They provide balance. Short sellers can be abusive at times but that’s true of many types of investors. Shorting is often a thankless job since most markets move higher the majority of the time.”

    “I wouldn’t recommend short selling to ordinary investors because it’s probably the most difficult investment strategy there is but those professionals who focus on this style of investing do provide healthy market dynamics on the whole.”

        Despite the change from decentralized to centralized, people want to know who created Bitcoin and Why. But there’s another equally compelling question, “What happened to the founders’ one million Bitcoin?”

        Who: Psychically I see Satoshi Nakamoto and want to release this info to the world and put to rest the rumors about who Satoshi is. The name, Satoshi Nakamoto was created to conceal the creators identity. And for good reason. To say this new technology would’ve brought undesirable attention to the founders is the understatement, they would have been jailed. Yes, I said, FOUNDERS with an “S”. Satoshi Nakamoto is a group of mixed nationality Asians – they are cool cats, mostly young brainiac coders. I see a core group of seven with a few subcontractors. Of course this leads to other questions like: Are they still involved in Bitcoin? Will any of the founders help in Bitcoins further development? I’ll answer those questions in a moment, but for now, onto the “Why.”

      Mr. Tracy,

      What are your thoughts about what Michael Stumo has to say? I personally agree with him.

      • On April 7, 2018 at 2:11 pm,
        Dick Tracy says:

        Al, Michael Stumo is right The United States should be pursuing strategic trade rather than free trade and end the globalist trap The US finds itself in.That is going to take a complete reversal of the pendulum. One needs to go back to a time when America was prosperous. Turn back the clock to the 1920’s when Calvin Coolidge was in The White House. America had a very small government at all levels. They were a creditor nation not a debtor nation, and their foreign policy was nationalistic, American citizens first. During these years America used financial penetration to influence it’s foreign policy not the military. Michael Stumo mentioned the successful countries in regards to strategic trade, they were South Korea, Japan, and Germany. All three of these countries have no regards for foreign intervention, they all venerate the business life and the role of the businessman in their society. America was like that one hundred years ago when they didn’t allow foreign goods to pass the high tariff barrier but instead reconciled the problem of having too much money by allowing their citizens to travel and spend freely abroad because they were successful as a nation.
        Having Trump the businessman is a big leap forward for The United States. Business most be seen as an almost godly institution in order to become a strategic trader. There are other changes that can be made like building the right trade colleges in sufficient numbers and promoting skilled occupations, and that wealth should not be seen as a detriment for employment in public office. The businessman must be allowed to wear his halo proudly. DT

    This is just shocking, to me:


    What culture voluntarily assents to becoming a minority in its own land??? One that has been brainwashed, deceived, distracted, lulled into complacency.

    I have lived the multicultural experiment, living the past 12+ years in a developing country, as well as living in majority black and majority eskimo areas of the US prior to that (after having grown up in one of the whiter areas of the US). I have witnessed one ethnic group overrun another first hand. I’ve also worked in the environmental conservation field, so I may be more familiar with the iLLiberal mindset. Maybe this gives me some insight that most don’t have into some of these culture war issues, I don’t know.

    But in the course of my studies, as I uncover all this information, I find it more than a little concerning, and feel a responsibility to point it out. Do others know about this stuff? Do people talk about it? I’m sure the mass media doesn’t, and the majority of people don’t because they been conditioned to fear that doing so would make them a despicable racist, or at least that they would be tarred that way.

    Anyway, there is a lot to recommend the international lifestyle, not least because it is highly educational and gives one some insight into questions of culture, and an additional vantage point from which to interpret ones’ own culture that would be hard to gain any other way.

    Nonetheless, I’m sure the usual suspects would shout me down with their usual slurs over what I have to say. (Americans–get over it! Who cares if some jerk calls you a racist, antisemite, etc., sexist, etc.? Time to stop tolerating the BS.)

    A certain level of exchange is natural and beneficial. But the waves of migration we are seeing are refugees from preventable poverty and violence. Mass mixing cultures on this scale is insanity. Different cultures hold different values, react differently to the same words or situations. It takes constant effort to understand each other.

    And what about the endemic corruption in most Latino countries? They have no tradition of governance like the American tradition, and their legal system is based on the Napoleonic code rather than the British system. Has their growing to 18% of the population strengthened our traditions as a Constitutional Republic, or even as a democracy? What about Asians and Africans? Why the mania to mix such disparate cultures?

    It’s too stupid to be stupid.

    Those who want to portray this as racial hatred can blow it out their bugles.

    Clearly there has been a plan to turn whites into a minority in the US, just as Coudenhove-Kalergi dreamed for Europe. Look into the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, and who the political pushers were, and you’ll know who wants whites to be a minority in the US. Coudenhove-Kalergi’s ‘spiritual nobility of Europe’.

    Wouldn’t we would do better to focus on resolving the racial issues we already have than creating more? What do Native Americans think of opening the floodgates for immigration as has been done?

    I have always lamented the ugly history of America’s treatment of the native Americans, and I believe it is still a festering problem which needs a true solution. But notwithstanding the ugly history, the culture that replaced that replaced them has as much a right to defend itself as does any. Though frankly, I’m not sure what is to be done at this point. Awareness is a start.

    In the big picture, this is about rolling back the American culture that believed in Constitutional Republic, individual rights, limited government, and free markets. And it’s just about been accomplished.

        GH – Very interesting thoughts to consider in your post up above and you made a number of good points and observations on the deliberate culture clash and abnormally large waves of immigration into Europe and North America from the Middle East, along with growing immigration (legal and illegal from Africa, South America, and Asia).

        The countries that most refugees are fleeing have much different concepts on the rule of law, morals, gender/race/religion equality, and do not hold in as high of esteem the concepts of a Constitutional Republic, individual rights and liberties, free markets, and a limited government.

        This mass immigration may be partially encouraged by those that want a large nanny-state government to replace things and a growing segment of the population that will vote for their ideologies. this latest Guatemalan train of 1,500 refugees had George Soros funded Catholic groups in Latin America and Mexico sending buses/food/media to assist, and border guards were mysteriously missing at most checkpoints, so the whole narrative stinks to high kickback.

        Having said that, much of the mass migration story is also symptomatic of people that are just looking for opportunity at all costs and fleeing areas that are very unstable and unsafe. It is hard to blame people for wanting to better their lot in life, provide a safer place to raise their children, and be more free to express themselves.

        There are supposed to be orderly immigration policies and quotas as to how many new citizens can flood into a given country, but the desire to have sanctuary cities, “open boarders”, and give everyone that sneaks into the concert a free pass, aren’t helping to maintain some level of continuity in the institutions of government, business, and philosophy that are the foundation of how the Western world raised the quality of life for the vast majority of their citizens.

        Europe is starting to see this in spades with certain areas that are under entirely different kinds of ethnic/religious laws and the larger laws of the EU are completely ignored, and not enforced. North America is starting to see the shifting dynamics, but soon the tension will reach a level that bubbles over, and the concern would be a harsh tyrannical ruling party putting in place a forceful Marshall Law to quell the masses and outbreaks.

        It will be interesting to see how things change over the next 2-3 political elections at the federal level in the US, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and how things develop in the European Union, Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. More and more the waves of migrants from the Middle East, Africa, South America, and Asia will be changing the dynamics.

        Until then enjoy the present moment and Carpe Diem.

          It is a double-edged sword though on trying to maintain a positive culture and work with various minority groups to find common ground. The reverse situation of a terrible form of nationalism is seen all through Africa at present, especially in South Africa, the DRC (Congo), and in Zimbabwe.

          In Zimbabwe where they started to disregard the rule of law, and let their ethnic hatred of the white minority go off the rails, they started murdering, stealing, raping from the small white minority population with no consequences or rule of law. As a fallout from this they created a terrible business environment, destroyed the related industries and job markets, and introduced a far more sinister government under Mugabe all under the guise of “Black Empowerment” or “indigenisation”.

The US is threatening to attack Syria right now over what is obviously a false flag operation and the Russians have already said ‘don’t even think about it’

    The last table on this page shows how clueless Trump supporters are:

    77% are more sympathetic to Israel, vs 7% to Palestine.

    No moral compass, or no clue about reality?

    Likewise, 77% think overwhelming military force is the answer to Terrorism, while only 18% think relying too much on military force leads to more terrorism.

    “The whole history of the progress of human liberty shows that all concessions yet made to her august claims have been born of earnest struggle…If there is no struggle there is no progress…

    This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”
    ~Frederick Douglass

    The majority of Trump supporters have little idea of where their interests lie. How, then, are they to win their struggle? Will Trump and his $$ backers hand it to them on a silver platter? The wisdom of Frederick Douglass answers an emphatic “No!”.

        Trump exposes everyone, sometimes not so vague and sunny.

        An example would be Isreal in this thread. Trump moves the US embassy to Jeruselum as a gesture of neutrality, not favor. He said, ” we will move the embassy to a place where Christians, Muslims, Jewish and people of all faiths can worship. ”
        Some people on this site take that as an act of aggression. I say it’s a true neutral stance, and a good start in the right direction.

        When I talk about not losing time with the brainwashed, I’m thinking of my experience of a few years of political debate with a hardcore Lefty.

        Dead end after dead end, mental firewalls. I couldn’t leave it alone, b/c I just couldn’t understand how facts and logic could fail to make an impact. Any time he seemed to be cornered by internal contradictions of his views, squirmy evasiveness would save the day. Finally it came down to him arguing to me that all of those of us from flyover country/’jezuzland’ need to be subjected to unconstitutional federal government-controlled schooling (indoctrination) because otherwise we would go back to teaching creationism instead of evolution, and return to lynching and slavery.

        No joke. He actually argued to me, clueless as to the implications of his own beliefs, I’m sure, that me and mine need to be subjected to unconstitutional indoctrination.

        This is a very nice man, PhD educated (those who spend most time in academia are at most risk for internalizing this kind of rubbish).

        20 years ago I got in a debate with a liberal friend (like the other, from New England), after I mentioned my admiration for Thoreau. She denied that white men had any positive contribution to make to society due to ‘Male White Privilege’. We went round and round, and she did finally concede the point. But it is absolutely bizarre that a debate was necessary, and absolutely bizarre, just like in the other case, that she would try to make that case to a white man. That’s brainwashing.

        Incidentally, the feeling I get when i debate CFS is exactly the same as when I debate iLLiberal Lefties.

        To sum up: I chalk it up to brainwashing when in debate/discussion I come up against strange mental blocks that prevent obvious rational lines of reasoning or considering the logical implications of one’s beliefs; evasive rhetoric; and highly emotional response to having one’s beliefs challenged.

    Mark Cuban Says Gold and Bitcoin Are Equally Useless

    Daniela Cambone Apr 9, 2018

    “The Dallas Mavericks owner would buy a pet rock before gold. Here is why Cuban is no fan of the yellow metal….”

    “I hate gold. Gold is a religion,” Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, says in an exclusive interview at the Three Sharks In A Castle Symposium. “I do not see it as an alternative to currency.”

    Cuban said that while there may be some fundamental value to gold, “everything else is a collectible,” he said, adding that gold and bitcoin are the “same thing.”

    “According to Cuban, both bitcoin and gold derive their value from supply and demand.”

    “The good news about bitcoin is that there’s a finite supply, and the bad news about gold is that they’ll keep mining more” he said.


    • On April 9, 2018 at 5:00 am,
      Excelsior says:

      A couple of follow up questions I’d have asked Mark if I was interviewing him:

      1) Why are Central Banks net buyers of Gold and holding it if it isn’t a currency or store of value?

      2) Why is legal tender minted in Gold & Silver if it isn’t seen as money? (They aren’t doing that with Bitcoin).

      3) I’d ask him to unpack how Gold and Bitcoin are the “same thing” as they are not. Gold is on the Periodic table, Bitcoin is not. Gold has been used for thousands of year in Art, Jewelry, Religious artifacts, and Money – Bitcoin has not. Gold is tangible, and Bitcoin is not. And so on…..

      4) “The good news about bitcoin is that there’s a finite supply, and the bad news about gold is that they’ll keep mining more” he said. — Mark Cuban

      > What planet does this guy live on? There is only a finite amount of Gold that is on the planet, (as it is created when stars go supernova) so it is the very definition of in finite supply. We’d have to mine it on asteroids or other planets to get an increase in the supply.

      As for Bitcoin, it has already “Forked” twice creating even more and more supply, not to mention the 1,700 other altcoins competing for attention and investment dollars in the crypto space. There litterally is no limit to how many forks or how many competitors can enter this space, so we can put a fork in the “scarcity” or “finite” claims about Bitcoin or any cryptos.

      Mark has made some very misguided and factually incorrect statements, yet the sheeple will eat up his every word. You gotta love it…

        * Correction: When writing the response up above I forgot about the brand new study/observation that replaces the likelihood that Gold and heavier elements are created in Neutron Star collisions (which replaces the previous long-held theory that they were only created in Supernovas). There are still some that feel Supernovas could be a valid source as well, but apparently the Neutron star collisions are fairly routine in Galaxies all throughout the universe… including our own Milky Way.


        A Tale Of Two Neutron Stars: The Birth Of Gold

        David Lin – Kitco News – Wednesday March 28, 2018

        – “How does one create as much gold that weighs about as much as the Earth?”
        – “Simple: bring two neutron stars together….”

        “We estimate that the collision created about as much gold as the mass of the Earth,” said Professor Andrew Levan of Warwick University, in an interview with the Financial Times. An estimated six billion trillion tonnes of gold could have been formed from one collision, the article said.

        “The observation made last summer supplants a popular theory on the origin of gold held for several decades, which is that supernovae, violent explosions from the death of massive stars, form elements heavier than iron.”

        “However, scientists now believe that the collision of neutron stars better explains the origins of precious metals.”

        “We felt pretty staggered that we had found something that seemed to match the theory so well,” said Prof Levan of Warwick. “We can make enough gold in neutron star collisions to do away with supernovae as a source.”

        “Neutron star collisions occur about once every 10,000 years in the Milky Way galaxy, according to the research.”
