Snow Job in May
By : Fearless Rick - Friday May 6, 2011
1 comment
It is difficult to express just how warped US markets have become, though, from the movements of the past two trading days, a case can be made that the markets are being guided by forces that are distinctively not based on free market ideology nor statistics that can be trusted within any degree of accuracy. Taking a look first on the massive downdraft in commodities - mostly silver and crude oil - from Thursday’s trading, one should look no further than the CME (Chicago Mercantile (...)

MoneyDaily: Death of Osama bin Laden Springs Bernanke Trap
By : Fearless Rick - Monday May 2, 2011
Whether or not one accepts the story of the demise of Osama bin Laden as gospel or Golem, there is no doubting that the mainstream news media is treating it as the truth, and celebrating it with requisite aplomb. It served as the leading commentary to an otherwise dull Monday, especially in the financial markets. At one time, the capture or death of the man who was widely recognized as the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks was thought to able to create a market rally of dizzying proportions, (...)

Canada Expands Free Trade with Israel - May Lose UN seat Vote
By : johnny canuck - Tuesday October 12, 2010
Canada is Israel’s best friend. So said Israel’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman when he visited there. Canada has both a sweeping Security Agreement and Free Trade Agreement with Israel. Canada was the first to cut all aid and support to Gaza after the democratic election of Hamas. It also banned Viva Palestina and ex British MP George Galloway from entering on the grounds he was a ’terrorist’. ’We need more international friends like Canada’, said (...)

GOLD ENTERING A VIRTUOUS CIRCLE
By : Egon von Greyerz - GoldSwitzerland.com - Tuesday September 7, 2010
GOLD ENTERING A VIRTUOUS CIRCLE Fundamental and technical factors for gold are now in total harmony and gold is entering a virtuous circle that will drive the price up at its fastest pace since this bull market started in 1999. It is a fact that gold in US dollars (and many other currencies) has gone up 400% in eleven years or 16% per annum annualised. It is a fact that the US dollar has declined 80% in value against gold since 1999. It is a fact that the dollar and most other (...)

Marc Faber and Peter Schiff on the U.S. Bond Bubble
By : Marc Faber & Peter Schiff - Saturday August 28, 2010
Marc Faber and Peter Schiff on the U.S. Bond Bubble THURSDAY, AUGUST 26, 2010 One of the things I strive to do as an investor is to stand apart from the herd. By understanding human psychology, which basically explains bubbles and panics, removing myself from the herd becomes a lot easier. There is a monumental bond bubble brewing that is incorrectly being justified as fundamentally sound (much in the way inflated home prices were 4 years ago). I just don’t see the risk/reward (...)

A BOND BUBBLE?
By : ANNALY CAPITAL - Saturday August 28, 2010
A BOND BUBBLE? 28 AUGUST 2010 BY ANNALY CAPITAL By Annaly Capital Management: The “bond bubble” discussion in the mainstream media has become deafening lately. Some of the commentary has been thoughtful and interesting, but not all of it. Much of the bubble-watch has focused on asset flows into fixed income funds, the total return of Treasuries over the last 10 years, and the theoretical possibility of a bubble in an asset class that guarantees return of principal.

Is a Crash Coming? Ten Reasons to Be Cautious By BRETT ARENDS Could Wall Street be about to crash again? This week’s bone-rattlers may be making you wonder. I don’t make predictions. That’s a sucker’s game. And I’m certainly not doing so now. But way too many people are way too complacent this summer. Here are 10 reasons to watch out. 1. The market is already expensive.

The euphoria of Wall Street (and by extrapolation from the rest of world stock) following the results of so-called "stress test" of financial institutions conducted by the U.S. administration and the drip of negative economic data below the most pessimistic forecasts would have helped the overweight green shoots of the economy (estimated 3% of GDP by 2010 and substantial improvement in results of the Banks and Wall Strett).

Laughing on the Outside
By : David Glenn Cox - Wednesday August 11, 2010
By David Glenn Cox Winston Churchill once said, “You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they’ve tried everything else.” The old boy had us dead to rights, as a nation we don’t learn and we don’t take advice. Churchill’s bromide could be applied to Wall Street as well with one slight alteration. “You can always count on Wall Street to do the right thing when pigs fly and chickens sing opera.” Wall Street is a one eyed (...)

Gold rate soon 50,000? Sunday 18 October 2009 Gold over $ 1000 was a signal for other newcomers to the gold. Central to the price of gold is no longer correct, press brakes, only the increase. Systemtod because of capital flight has begun so long ago. It was emphasized in this market commentary on several occasions that means a gold price of $ 1000 a kind of "threshold of death" for the international financial system. This was achieved a few weeks ago and last week clearly exceeded. (...)

Today, Oct. 7, 2009, is Mayo Shattuck, III’s 55th birthday. He’s the CEO of Constellation Energy (CE) and he’s set to receive a $33 million golden parachute! This is so even though many, like the advocacy group, Progressive Maryland Education Fund (PMEF), feel he doesn’t deserve a penny of it. They claim he’s done a lousy job as CEO and that he has driven the company to the “brink of bankruptcy.” The group also charged, at a press conference held on (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
