Silver Content in the Super Bowl XLIX Vince Lombardi Trophy: 95 OUNCES

from Agora:

Everybody knows what the famous Super Bowl trophy looks like – it depicts a football in kicking position (of course!) on a three concave-sided stand. It is named after the legendary NFL football player, coach, and executive Vince Lombardi, who was the head coach of Green Bay Packers in the 1960s, and lead them to win two Super Bowls following the 1966 and 1967 NFL seasons.

7 lbs of Sterling Silver = 95 ozs of Pure Silver: Here’s something that you may not know about the trophy – it is made out of 3.2kg (7 lbs) of sterling silver. Since sterling silver is 92.5% by mass, a simple calculation can help a silver-savvy football fan come up with a number depicting the total pure silver content of the trophy. 3.2 kilograms equals 3,200 grams. Divide that number by 31.1, which is how many grams there are in a troy ounce. Then multiply the result by 92.5% and voila! Just over 95 troy ounces of pure silver! Now, a 100 oz. silver bar may not look as flashy, but it’s definitely easier to store and transport!

Looter Defense Tactics

from Ready Nutrition:

For many; the not too distant events in Ferguson are the first thoughts that come to mind when you mention the word looting. Looting in some circles is what you do apparently when there is an opportunity to steal and occasionally destroy with relative impunity. For some people, looting is appropriate after your team loses a sports event like the 2011 Vancouver riots or wins one as in the case of the San Francisco riots of 2014. The most likely place to see unabashed looting appears to be after a natural disaster like the looting reported immediately following hurricanes Katrina and more recently Sandy. Even before the Sandy storm had subsided, wannabe criminals were taking to Twitter to announce their looting plans. To be fair, our country isn’t the only one engaging in behavior like this during a crisis, as the recent hurricane in Cabo San Lucas showed.

Super Bowl: American’s On The Hook for Massive Security Cost, NFL Remains TAX-EXEMPT!

The NFL made over nine billion dollars this past year in gross revenue. That is over one billion dollars more than Major League Baseball, the next most profitable American professional sports league.

“We’re on the Verge of a Crisis” and Global Currency Wars Are Triggering It

by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

In financial circles, it is widely acknowledged that the Federal Reserve was about to raise interest rates, but has since changed course and decided to hold firm.

Why? Because currencies are tanking all across the globe, and a stronger U.S. dollar – a double-edged sword – is making export goods more expensive and hurting international business.

Welcome to 2015, the year of the currency wars. Things are about to get volatile, so hold on.

Wall Street bears are warning that a crisis is near, according to CNN Money:

The Death of King Abdullah and the Future of Oil Geopolitics

by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:

In the early hours of Friday, January 23, Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz died of complications from pneumonia. He was 90 years old, and was just shy of reaching the 10 anniversary of his accession to the Saudi throne in August of 2005.

From the perspective of global oil geopolitics, the death of the leader of one of the world’s top oil exporters could hardly have come at a more sensitive time. Oil prices have plummeted by half in the past six months, with some predicting prices will plunge even lower and remain there for some time. Many have fingered the Saudis as the culprit for the fall in prices, but even the infamously spendthrift oiligarchs of the House of Saud are feeling the pinch as low oil prices start to eat into their reserves. Now a large question mark hangs over not just the future of Saudi Arabia, or even the global oil market, but the current monetary order itself.

The Hidden Weakness In Your Defense Plans

from Survival Blog:

There are two tried, proven, and scientifically-documented ways to program the unconscious mind. Any professional or Olympic athlete will tell you that visualization works. If you watch winter Olympics downhill skiers stand at the top of their run, they are moving their bodies imagining the run as they want it before they even start. This programs the unconscious to see the same picture that the conscious imagines, and when the two work together amazing results follow. The other way to reprogram the unconscious mind is also well known and documented, though few have applied that knowledge to shooting; it’s positive affirmations. If you continually bombard your unconscious mind with verbal suggestions, what you are essentially doing is brainwashing yourself. If the unconscious mind hears it enough times repetitively and over a long enough time span, it begins to believe it. To be effective, your self-talk should be short, simple, and to the point. For instance, let’s say you aren’t the most observant person in the world. Your self-talk statement might be something like this; “I am always alert”. Your positive affirmations should be spoken several times a day and as often as you can. Remember repetition and time are the proven basis for brainwashing. If you do this, you will find that over time you will be looking less at your shoes as you walk and instead looking around at your surroundings more.

Daniel McAdams-Setting the Record Straight: Who Really Caused the Ukraine Crisis

Secret Society of the Turd

from TF Metals Report:

My, what long, strange trip it’s been. Since first discovering the importance and unique position of precious metals in the global economy, to searching out and visiting my first LCS, buying my first ‘stack’ of a meager ~40 ounces of silver — and the roller-coaster ride to where we are today.

The value of a community such as this one has always been enhanced, nay, half-defined by the contributions, personalities, humor, insights and perspectives of the participants — you all, my fellow Turdites. While the site from its outset has fostered a free exchange of ideas, encouraged interaction through comments, posts, forum threads and live webinars, I have long toyed with the idea that it would be really cool to meet my fellow Turdites in person. I’ve certainly ‘met’ and ‘spoke with’ many here whom I would love to have a chance to meet, and a few whom I am proud to call friends despite never having had that chance.

This is very unsettling. NYC citizens, and ultimately all US citizens, have just been given 350 more reasons to question authority. It seems like NYC has been picked for beta testing another “fear/control/aggressive/divisive influence”. It has….

Oil Wars: Pop! Goes the Weasel…

from The Daily Sheeple:

The “weasel” known as the USA fracking revolution, America’s recent shale gas and shale oil boom, which has been touted by the Obama Administration as grounds for risking their radical regime change policies across the OPEC Islamic world, is going “pop!,” as the money goes…

The collapse of the five-year-old USA fracking revolution is proceeding with accelerating speed as jobs are being slashed by the tens of thousands across the United States; shale oil companies are declaring bankruptcy and Wall Street banks are freezing new credits to the industry. The shale weasel in America has just gone pop!, and soon the bloodbath will look like the aftermath of the Battle of Falkirk of Braveheart fame.

The Muslim Brotherhood Takeover of the Obama Administration

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

Muslims have a constitutional right to practice their religion and hold any office within the American government so long as they are sincere in protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States. However, when members of any religious, or any other kind of group openly advocate for the hijacking of the American government and ultimately the American people under the Sharia law applications of the terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, their right to hold any governmental position is forfeited. Further, it is a crime, under Federal law which is punishable by fines and imprisonment, to openly advocate for the overthrow and United States of America. Yet, this is what the personal and public beliefs reflect for the following list of Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers serving in the U.S. government, who openly advocate for the domination of Islam over all other religions in the United States and “to make the United States an “Islamic nation”.

It’s Greece VS. Wall Street [And HUMANITY VS. The Banksters]

from ZeroHedge:

If Yanis and Alexis want to get anywhere, they’ll need to take on Wall Street and its international, American, French, German, TBTF banks, primary dealers. And if there’s one thing those guys don’t like, it’s democracy. It’s going to be a bloody battle. And it hasn’t even started yet. But kudos to all Greeks for starting it. It has to be done. And I don’t see how the euro could possibly survive it.

Gold price prediction 2015: Rise or Fall?

BIG TROUBLE FOR U.S. GOLD MARKET: No Available Supply When Price Skyrockets

from SRSrocco Report:

Americans are in big trouble and they don’t even know it.  The financial system in which they are totally invested, is heading towards an epic collapse.  Printing money and increasing debt (exponentially) are not sustainable business practices.  These artificial techniques to prop up a Zombie Economy have a certain lifespan… one that will end much sooner than later.

Unfortunately, the precious metal community had no idea how long the Fiat Monetary Authorities could prop up the Leech & Spend U.S. Economy.  Many now believe this can go on for quite a long time.  However, this is a terrible assumption to make.  Why?  Because the length at which the Fed and member banks were able to keep a Dead Financial System alive and its inevitable collapse, will both come as a surprise.

Shale Collapse Takes 16,000 Jobs

from Outsider Club:

Last week oilfield services provider Schlumberger (NYSE: SLB) laid off 9,000 employees. Baker Hughes (NYSE: BHI) is laying off 7,000.

That’s just the beginning.

Plenty more layoffs are coming down the pike as shale drillers scramble to cut costs and rein in production.

Indeed, the number of oil rigs operating in the United States is falling like a rock. Oil rigs have dropped by an unprecedented 258 in seven weeks. The count is now at its lowest level since January 2013.

The Ideology of the New Ukraine

from Washington’s Blog:

Screen Shot 2015-01-31 at 2.26.11 PM

The ideology of the new, post-coup, Ukraine, is the ideology of its leaders. Above all, Dmitriy Yarosh, the founder of Right Sector, is that; but so too are Andrei Beletsky, the founder of Azov Battalion; and Andriy Parubiy and Oleh Tyahnybok, the co-founders of the “Social Nationalist Party of Ukraine,” the Party which, at the CIA’s urging, changed its name in 2004 to “Freedom” or “Svoboda,” in order to sell it better in the West. All of these leaders are leaders in this new Government, but not at its nominal top, because the U.S. regime doesn’t want the ties of its new Government to Hitler’s Nazi Party to be so obvious to Americans or to Europeans — it would be bad PR, especially because the United States lost so many men fighting against Hitler’s forces, and against the fascisms and racisms of Tojo and of Mussolini, all of which (and especially Hitler’s views) are basically boiled down here in the statement quoted below (only replacing “Ukraine” where Hitler said “German,” because this is a Ukrainian nazi, not a member of the original nazi party, which was the National Socialist Party of Germany).

Legendary Felix Zulauf – Massive Second Leg Of Gold Rally And Disaster For Global Stock Markets

from KingWorldNews:

Felix Zulauf: “Now coming to commodities: It’s clear that in this deflationary process commodity prices will continue to decline. They will bounce once the dollar has a correction but that will be a bounce only. The structural decline in commodities, the structural bear market in commodities, will continue for quite some time.

The great exception is precious metals and gold in particular….

“Gold is not a commodity. Gold is money. Gold actually performed extremely well last year because it was the second strongest currency after the U.S. dollar.
