Over the last several months, both the mainstream media and the alternative media have frequently mentioned the subject of the ever declining “Congressional Approval Ratings” which implies what percentage of the American public approves of how Congress is performing its duties, expressed as a percentage. Anyone who is awake and aware would not be surprised that this “rating” has sunk to historic lows over the last 3-4 years. Over the last several months it has dropped from a low of about 33% to an all-time historic low of what some say is now as low as 9%. Pretty grim to say the least, but does it really matter?
The “Congressional Approval Rate” gets a lot of hype via the different media spectrums, and is often mentioned in political discussions and debates. Some sources say that politicians do pay attention to the “Approval Rate” like a Fed Chairman would watch the price of gold. In many ways it is used a barometer, measuring the political climate, and the opinion of the masses of American sheep, who in most cases don’t even know what the real issues are. Ironic, isn’t it? People being asked to give an opinion on how they rate the effectiveness and performance of their elected officials, yet they are not aware of the issues, or the majority of the criteria in which to do so. That is a joke in itself, and “The Powers That Be” are laughing all the way to the bank.

Dr. Dave Janda joins us to WAKE UP THE MASSES about Obamacare which Dave says is, “a New World Order BOMB designed to destroy our healthcare system.”
Dave Janda is an orthopedic surgeon and the host of ‘Operation Freedom’ which you can catch on his website DaveJanda.com
Dave says, “I’ve read Obamacare several times, and I’m not even sure that Barack Obama has read Obamacare based on the things that come out of his mouth because he is so factually incorrect about the things he says.”
This conversation quickly becomes a CALL TO ACTION for every listener as Dave explains the only way to fix Obamacare: “There’s ONE solution to Obamacare and this is it, Obamacare has to be IMMEDIATELY repealed. Obamacare is about the ultimate control of the people.”

One of the reasons why U.S. healthcare is expensive is because some of the world’s best hospitals are based in our country. That’s not the only reason why, mind you, but let’s face it: things of higher quality tend to cost more.
But there will be none of that “best quality care” available for most ordinary Americans, thanks to Obamacare: New published information says that those who sign up under the healthcare law’s exchanges will be excluded from coverage that would pay for care at many of the nation’s top hospitals.
And you thought Barack Obama cared about “the little people.”

Predictably, that Obama handshake with the killer Raul Castro at the Mandela funeral has stirred up old right-vs-left animosities. It has provided yet another excuse to engage in distractive partisan political theater.
On the so-called Left side of the establishment, former Clinton counselor and a current fixture at CNN, Paul Begala, said Obama shook Castro’s hand “because he knows he’s on the right side of history.”
Chuck Todd, NBC’s chief White House watcher, tweeted dismissively about negative coverage of the handshake:
CNN, meanwhile, dedicates precious news real estate to things that really matter, for instance the upcoming pornographic melodrama, Fifty Shades of Grey.

With America’s middle class being destroyed on a daily basis, and low wage workers seeing reduced hours and experiencing more difficulty with making ends meet, it is only a matter of time before people snap. We may think we live in a stable society, but as Daniel Ameduri of Future Money Trends points out below, no country is immune to civil unrest when the right conditions are met. And if you’ve been paying attention, it’s not that much of a stretch of the imagination to suggest the signs of discontent are starting to appear from sea to shining sea. As the situation continues to degrade in the United States we, too, will experience rioting and civil unrest, something the U.S. government has been actively preparing for. In the very near future, riots won’t just be some far-off event you watch on television from the comfort of your couch… They’ll be front and center, right outside your front door.
This past weekend a country with one of the highest living standards in the world saw rioting in the streets!

Technically we have now seen a double-bottom off of that $1,180 low. So yesterday’s bounce was surprising to some, but we expected it. Most important is not that gold has turned the corner, but that gold is now setting itself up for some key upside targets.
The first target for gold is $1,320, and this is followed by the $1,380 level. After that gold will target the $1,500 area. So we are talking about a significant move in gold.

Yup, that is the story. The following arguments explain why Charles and I think gold will plummet to around $500 per ounce. Also, after my luncheon date with Elvis, I have a large bridge for sale. If you are interested and willing to make a SERIOUS OFFER, see below.
The price of gold has roughly followed (up, up, and away) the growth of the U.S. national debt since 1971. The national debt is rising like 8% per year or like $1,000,000,000,000 per year. But don’t jump to the conclusion that gold prices will continue rising along with the debt! Charles Ponzi and I have faith in congress, lobbyists, and the sincerity of the budget process. We believe the national debt will rapidly fall due to the positive economic stimulus from ObamaCare, from actual budget cuts, and therefore gold should drop to new lows. Mr. Ponzi thinks it could go real low – like $450 or $500.
The other day an out-of-work economist friend and I had lunch. He is a bright guy and he used to work for one of them central banks, or maybe a rating agency, or the IMF. Anyway, the subject of economic forecasting came up, he got this “far-away” look in his eyes, and he started babbling. Perspiration formed on his forehead, and his left eye started twitching. The mood was weird, like really, really strange.

by Lawrence Williams, MineWeb.com:
There seems to have been the suggestion of something of a turnaround in sentiment on gold, ironically as virtually every bank analyst and his dog has been predicting a continuing downturn in the gold price – which, I suppose is the time to buy on true contrarian thinking. Now whether the latest move upwards – not a big one so far by any stretch of the imagination – is sustainable, remains to be seen, but the factors surrounding the upturn are, to say the least, interesting.
One does not exactly need a long memory to recall that every indication that the U.S. Fed may actually implement any kind of taper since the proposal was first put forward by Ben Bernanke has been met with a sharp downturn in the gold price – until perhaps a couple of weeks ago when the opposite seems to have happened.

Too big to fail securely in place while business inventories surge to record levels.
Tracking consumer spending we find that industries subsidized by easy debt are growing at dramatic levels. These include student debt and auto loans since most Americans simply do not have enough saved up. Many have nothing to their name. The student debt market has grown dramatically this year again largely due to the reality that this debt is fully backed by the government and ability to pay the debt back is fully ignored. How else can someone get $30,000 or more a year to go to a for-profit paper mill? Beyond this, we now hear that household net worth has risen to record levels. However, since most Americans have no wealth in the stock market and are quickly losing home ownership in real estate, these gains are largely going to the top 10 percent in the nation that control roughly 75 percent of all wealth. This is not based on speculation but on multiple points of data. Banks do not trust the public because many are broke and do not have the funds to support massive debt growth. Ironically, these banks would not be around without the big bailout check that was required from the public.

Deputy PM says Moscow “preparing a response” to U.S. plans for missile shield in Europe
by Paul Joseph Watson, Prison Planet:
Addressing the threat posed by plans by the United States to install a missile defense system in Europe, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin today asserted that Russia would respond with nuclear weapons if it was targeted by conventional American missiles.
Rogozin’s comments arrive just a day after President Vladimir Putin called on Russia to upgrade its weapons systems in order to repel U.S. plans to institute the EPAA missile shield in Europe, which is ostensibly designed to counter Iran’s nuclear build-up yet is also firmly pointed at Russia.
Asserting that Russia was “preparing a response” to the U.S. missile defense system, Rogozin warned, “They may experiment with conventional weapons on strategic delivery platforms, but they must bear in mind, that if we are attacked, in certain circumstances we will of course respond with nuclear weapons.”

Should tapering be announced next week, gold will no doubt fall but to what extent is up for debate. Many analysts and commentators, including this one, believe that the majority of the tapering has already been priced into the gold price. Consider, for all the tapering talk yesterday, gold continued to make small but significant gains.
In the usual manner the Fed has been rolling out the occasional Fed President to provide some ‘useful’ insight. Yesterday it was the turn of St Louis Fed President, James Bullard. He stated that the odds of seeing a ‘Dectaper’ are now higher following the improving job market data, as seen in Friday’s non-farm payroll data release.
He argued, however, that the cut in QE should be modest, “a small taper might recognize labour-market improvement while still providing the committee the opportunity to carefully monitor inflation during the first half of 2014.”

Something happened yesterday that is very different from the past. Gold and silver exploded higher out of nowhere and even had market stopping volume. Was there any news? Well yes there was, “taper” talk has again made the rounds and CNBC is awash with “taperers,” even Steve Liesman is calling for a December taper. Looking back, gold and silver have always, each and every time a Fed “taper” is discussed …gone down and down hard.
So why all of a sudden do the metals act 180 degrees different and move higher in reverse fashion when “taper” is mentioned than from the last 1-2 years? Could it be that “someone” knows (or has even seen) that the bottom of the barrel is nigh? Has negative (again) GOFO rates scared some shorts into covering or longs into grasping at supply? Or maybe the fact that basically ALL COMEX deliverable ounces are spoken for with December contracts? Could it be that since all 4 Swiss refineries are running full out 24/7, someone of means has put the pieces together? Or maybe “word” is starting to get around that the Chinese finally have their ducks in a row and are willing to kiss their U.S. Treasury reserves goodbye?
