Medford Police are training to kill Americans at traffic stops as part of cold weather training designed to improve their shooting response time in freezing temperatures.
The training scenarios, which are based on “real life events,” according to a report by KDRV, show police entering buildings and approaching vehicles with guns drawn in order to improve their range of motion and speed when using a firearm in sub-freezing winter conditions.
“Both building and traffic stop scenarios were among the exercises and officers said the training gives them valuable experience,” according to the report.

from The Daily Bell:
US tax deal could prove deadly for small banks … US demands are “barely tolerable both economically and legally”, according to Swiss Bankers Association chairman Patrick Odier … Valiant, Berner Kantonalbank and Vontobel are the first Swiss banks to have agreed to sign up to a United States tax declaration programme. – SwissInfo.ch
Dominant Social Theme: The US government is only being reasonable. It will prosecute Swiss banks to the full extent of the law in order to make sure that tax revenues and resultant benefits to US citizens are maintained.
Free-Market Analysis: One thing is for certain: This amped-up regulatory regime is not about taxes. It’s about control … not just of Swiss banking facilities but ultimately of banks around the world, large and small. In fact, the top elites already run central banks around the world, so this merely adds another layer of control. And when it comes to running banks, the place where banks supposedly had the most freedom was Switzerland, so that region was attacked first – just to provide an object lesson.

I had the great opportunity recently to reconnect with the founder and former CEO of Goldcorp, Rob McEwen. He is now the Chairman and Chief Owner of McEwen Mining.
It was an interesting discussion, as Rob indicated we are very close to a significant turnaround in both metals and mining shares, to which the speed of recovery coming out of this bear market, will be absolutely dramatic.
Starting out with an expected catalyst for recovery of the mining sector, Rob said, “The next run in this market is going to be [driven by] gold moving higher…You look at the broad market right now. The stock market is quite high at the moment and on a relative basis, gold is very cheap…”

On a day when Sebelius faces more music, but small golf-claps are heard around Democrat offices at the sign-up rates for Obamacare, The Hill reports – rather dishearteningly, Capitol Hill staffers who signed up for ObamaCare through the Washington, D.C. healthcare exchange are being told to confirm their enrollments in person, and not to rely on data provided by the website… “Do not rely on your ‘My Account’ page or other correspondence from DCHL… do not assume you are covered.”

House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday took a swipe at conservative groups that “came out and opposed” a bipartisan budget deal “before they ever saw it.”
“They’re using our members, and they’re using the American people for their own goals. This is ridiculous,” he said at a Republican news conference. “Listen, if you’re for more deficit reduction, you’re for this agreement,” he snapped.
The Heritage Foundation said the budget deal “thoroughly disappoints,” and the conservative group offers “three key facts on the sour deal”: It busts through supposed spending caps; it taxes and spends; and it spends now and delays savings until later.

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.

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.
