Adam Kokesh’s July 4th ‘Armed March on Washington’ is pause for concern. Is it a good idea and an expression of the natural born rights of free men who are fed up with the overt criminality coming out of the District of Coumbia [er, we mean 'District of Criminals']? Or is it a misguided plan which can only end badly, giving more than ample opportunity for the mainstream mockingbird media to further demonize patriots and lawful gun owners – and for agent provocateurs to spark violence? Police officer & firearms industry insider Mark S Mann weighs in. We also discuss the NJ Senators whose gun confiscation agenda was exposed by a live mic, a story SGT Report broke days before infowars or any alternative media outlets.
It’s now coming down to the wire as TSA employees are even ready to opt out (of their jobs), fearing that they might be getting sick from radiation released from the body scanners at airports.
While there have even been “Opt Out” campaigns organized in protest of such police state technologies by concerned passengers and citizens, this TSA bobble could usher in new class-action lawsuits by airport employees and TSA staff.
However, this likely will not change the mentality of the federal government and how they treat traveling US citizens. As one thing is for sure, now there is now a new passenger underclass.
For the past eight years NASA astronomers have been monitoring the moon for signs of explosions caused by meteoroids hitting the lunar surface.
Lunar meteor showers have turned out to be more common than anyone expected with hundreds of detectable impacts occurring every year.
They’ve just seen the biggest explosion in the history of the program. “On March 17, 2013 an object about the size of a small boulder hit the lunar surface in Mare Imbrium,” says Bill Cook of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office.
It exploded in a flash nearly ten times as bright as anything we’ve ever seen before.
Anyone looking at the moon at the moment of impact could have seen the explosion, no telescope required.
In an upside-down universe, nothing is as it seems. Black is white, up is down, cats marry dogs and television sitcoms are actually funny. Well, I don’t know much about sitcoms, but economically speaking it can no longer be doubted that we live in an upside-down universe.
Case in point. In a regular universe a rising currency is a sign that the market values the strength of your economy and the stability of your government. In our upside-down universe, however, a rising currency is merely a sign that you have the nicest looking economy in a rough neighbourhood and that your competitors’ governments are likely to fall apart slightly quicker than your own. In other words, a rising currency in this universe is not necessarily a sign of strength.
This is the situation we see developing in the USD as the greenback rises to 3-year highs not on the strength of its economic fundamentals (soaring unemployment, historic levels of Americans on food stamps, lacklustre retail performance) but solely on the fact that its main currency competitors are doing so poorly.
The then chief executive of the US banking giant Citigroup was admitting that growing concerns about sub-prime loans could ultimately shatter what we now know was “irrational exuberance” on global financial markets.
“As long as the music is playing, though, you’ve got to get up and dance,” Prince continued. “And we’re still dancing.”
There’s a “we’re still dancing” mood on global markets today, just as there was six years ago in the run-up to what turned out to be the disastrous market meltdown of September 2008.
Rather than the securitisation of recklessly extended commercial credit providing the music, the beat now comes from “quantitative easing”, courtesy of the world’s leading central banks.
When the Rothchild’s HKMEx was launched in 2011, much of the metals community assumed that the COMEX & LBMA, were they not to outright default, would fade into irrelevance with the advent of the new Asian metals exchange.
Two years to the day after the exchange’s launch however, in perhaps the most glaring evidence of physical gold & silver shortage to date, the HKMEx has announced it will voluntarily cease trading, and all open positions will be closed out and financially (cash) settled on Monday 5/20!
As Commodities Now reports, the HKMEx has voluntarily made the decision to cease trading and close out all open positions:
The Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange (HKMEx) announces today it has decided to voluntarily surrender the authorisation to provide automated trading services (“ATS”) granted by the Securities and Futures Commission (“the SFC”). With immediate effect, no new orders may be placed and all open positions will be financially settled at the settlement price determined by HKMEx and its designated clearinghouse.
For the average citizen watching events such as the intense pursuit of the Tsarnaev brothers on television, it would be difficult to discern between fully outfitted police SWAT teams and the military.
The lines blurred even further Monday as a new dynamic was introduced to the militarization of domestic law enforcement. By making a few subtle changes to a regulation in the U.S. Code titled “Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies” [See p. 16 (3) here] the military has quietly granted itself the ability to police the streets without obtaining prior local or state consent, upending a precedent that has been in place for more than two centuries.
The Tsarnaev brothers could have been deported the moment it was known that they returned to the country they sought asylum from (or when Tamerlan was arrested and convicted for domestic violence in 2009.) Neither brother was given the boot.
Fast forward to May 14, 2013, when the Romeike family of German homeschoolers are denied asylum by Barack Obama and his twiddling twin Eric Holder. The Sixth District Court of Appeals upholds the Obama Administrations decision.
Injustice, absurdity, incongruity, and perversity are just a few of the words that can be used to describe the nonsense of the aforementioned. Bombers are in, but good parents who are raising kids with world-class intelligence that soars above anything coming out of public schools are given the boot back to Germany.
The arguments that rage between liberals and conservatives were at one time only slight political disturbances that could be hashed out between men and women who loved America and would, after some debate, buckle down and do what was right for the country in the spirit of bipartisanship. That day is all but gone.
Mark Twain once talked about history not necessarily repeating, but he noted that history sure does rhyme.
Richard Nixon was unable to survive one direct hit upon his administration, namely, the Watergate scandal. Conversely, Obama is facing five scandals which dwarf Watergate in terms of criminality, abuse of power, malfeasance of office and outright treason.
The damage inflicted upon the American people by the criminal syndicate occupying the White House is unparalleled in American history. Yet, Obama is going to survive and this article will describe how Obama is this century’s version of the famous escape artist, Houdini.
House lawmakers reach tentative deal to revamp immigration … Prospects for passage of a major immigration bill improved on Thursday when a bipartisan group of lawmakers in the House of Representatives declared they had reached a tentative deal, resolving disputes that had threatened to torpedo negotiations. The breakthrough came at the end of a two-hour private meeting of seven Republican and Democratic negotiators. The eighth negotiator in this so-called House Gang of Eight was unavailable after undergoing surgery on Wednesday. – Reuters
Dominant Social Theme: Welcome this rationalization of a difficult problem. Congress shall decide.
Free-Market Analysis: In the US legislative system, elected officials decide who comes and goes throughout the country. It didn’t used to be this way, though. The passport and visa system is only a post-War one. It seems strange but travel was a lot freer a century ago.
We had a large sovereign order in the market at $1,380 (area). That was definitely filled today (Friday). What we have today is an even more stretched managed money position holding the bag.
This physical tonnage that is disappearing will have an affect on the paper market, and I think it’s going to have an affect fairly soon.
The short stops have moved significantly lower and are highly vulnerable.
The minute this (downside) momentum wanes, I think there will be a race (for the shorts) to cover. I would say, given that the physical market is exponentially larger (in terms of demand) on each decline, I still firmly believe the bottom is in at the $1,320 area. But if we start approaching that area again, I think anything sub $1,350 is going to create massive central bank demand.
Gold closed down $22.20 to $1364.90 (comex closing time). Silver fell by 30 cents to $22.34 (comex closing time)
In the access market at 7 pm gold and silver are the following :
The bankers showed up early ready to attack gold and silver and their attack was fierce with copious non backed gold/silver paper. It seems that in the past 8 months,83% of Friday’s resulted in raids. The demand for physical remains off the charts as premiums in India and China remain very high. Yet these criminals continue to drive the paper price lower much to the delight of citizens of Eastern persuasion.
At the Comex, the open interest in silver rose by 1745 contracts to 146,411 contracts despite silver’s fall on Wednesday. The silver OI is holding firm at elevated levels . The open interest on the gold contract rose by 1445 contracts to 445,251 . With gold’s big fall in price on Wednesday, one would have thought that the OI would have contracted big time. The gold deliveries for May rose considerably today to 9.365 tonnes and this is an off month for gold. In silver we continue to see the total number of ounces standing rise above the quantity that stood on first day notice. The number of silver ounces, standing for delivery in May fell a tiny 180,000 oz now stands at 17.180 million oz. ( On first day notice: 14.860 million oz.)
Three regional Federal Reserve officials have called on the central bank to stop buying mortgage-backed bonds, citing the recent improvement in the U.S. housing market. Indeed, the US economy has improved and the rise in the stock market has the talking head talking to themselves in disbelief. The 800 pound monkey remains the German elections and this is not going well. Whatever the politicians in Europe can do to screw up the world they are going perfectly. We are at the edge in the middle of nowhere. Old Marxist ideas dominate the political circles and they cannot see that just as Communism collapsed, it is their turn now. The younger generation are out of work and not buying this nonsense of taxing the rich that does nothing but line the pockets of politicians. This is going to take a lot more pain before we see political reform.
The dollar MUST rise sharply OVERALL between now and 2015.75. This is what we need to reverse the economic fortunes of the US so the entire global economy then turns down 2015.75-2020.
Earlier today the House Committee on the Judiciary held a hearing examining the privacy implications of allowing aerial drones into domestic airspace, setting the stage for potential legislation restricting the use of drones.
Not a day passes without the financial media denouncing gold as an investment option and hailing the bureaucrats heading the world’s monopolist monetary central planning agencies as superheroes. It began prior to gold’s recent breakdown, with widely cited bearish reports on gold published by Credit Suisse and Goldman Sachs, among others. Never mind that most of their arguments were easily unmasked as spurious. It should be no wonder though: gold’s rise was the most conspicuous evidence of faith in central banking being slowly but surely undermined. The banking cartel relies on the fiat money system remaining intact; the legal privilege of fractional reserve banking provides it with what is an essentially fraudulent profit center unparalleled by any other in the world (fraudulent in terms of traditional legal principles, but not in terms of the current law of course). As a subtle reminder, in October (before the Nikkei began its 80% rally), a full 76% of the ‘big money’ fund managers surveyed declared themselves bearish on Japan. Currently, 69% of the managers surveyed in the most recent Barron’s poll are bearish on gold.
Former marine, radio host and political activist Adam Kokesh was arrested at a marijuana legalization assembly in Philadelphia today, according to video and Facebook posts.
In a video of the Smoke Down Prohibition rally, policemen can be seen entering a crowd of activists, and shortly afterwards emerging with Kokesh in tow.
According to his Facebook page, Kokesh was reportedly hauled away in a white Chevy Suburban, although he “hadn’t even smoked yet,” while “other protesters were actually smoking and released after arrest…”
The talk radio host recently garnered national attention when he announced a July 4th armed march on Washington D.C. in defiance of the capitol’s firearms laws. As of yet, it’s unclear whether his connection to the upcoming event had anything to do with his arrest today.
UPDATE (9:35PM CST): The following post has appeared on Facebook:
Adam is locked up in a federal jail… he will go infront of a judge monday… he is being charged with resisting arrest… that us all I know – Lucas
The federal government is spending $146,944 in taxpayer funds to research sending automated text messages to people with depression to remind them to take their medication and monitor their mood and thoughts.
The text messages will “prompt patients to monitor mood, thoughts and behaviors.” It will also “provide medication and appointment reminders,” and send personalized cognitive behavioral therapy based tips.
“Poor adherence to depression treatments (psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy) limits their effectiveness in community settings. Problems with adherence are especially pronounced in low-income settings. Innovative and cost-effective methods are needed to improve adherence to treatments and maximize mental health resources,” the project description said.
