"Jobless Claims Jump, Wholesale Food Costs Surge": Chicago PMI Revised to 66.8 from 68.6 and Philly Fed Manufacturing Index revised to 20.8 from 24.3 - Signs of HyperStagflation to Come

In my opinion the Fed policies and TARP programs have only truly benefited the too big to fail, who in many cases are now much bigger than before the crisis they caused and with what appears to be the consequence of a major transfer of wealth from the middle and working class to the wealthiest. A policy in which the flow of credit is largely to those who already have the highest concentration of wealth and who profit from the game the Fed plays simply by being too big to fail is one in which there is no free market whatsoever.

"There Is No Getting Around Gold - Money has lacked a golden anchor for 40 years. It has proved a stupendous failure. "

There is not much I can add to Jim Sinclair's comments on this Forbes article or the article itself. Gold has all the right characteristics for money as does silver. Its high density, limited in supply and universally perceived as having value throughout history.

"MIT Brunel Lecture on Economics and the Financial Crisis " : Weakness and Corruption in Public and Private Organizations

As is often the case, Jesse's Cafe Blog is one of the best sites for the kind of articles you don't get elsewhere. Charles Ferguson makes some astute observations in regard the systemic problems which come from weakening of appropriate regulation, enforcement and the weakness and in some cases "corruption" that have enabled the system to become greatly out of balance.

Sprott Discusses the Dichotomy of Large Amounts of Paper Silver Proxies vs. The Tightness in the Physical Markets

The Paper Market is abounding in paper "proxies" but it seems clear that available physical silver is becoming less and less plentiful, continuing a long term trend in which we now have about 1/10th as much available above ground silver is we did in 1940. In my opinion, few of the paper proxies are nearly as reliable as physical metal in the hand. There are a few exceptions and its no coincidence that the Sprott Physical Silver ETF is one of them.

Old and Gray's Corner: Congressional Errant Reading of the US Constitution an Affront

To some, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution are as close to sacred as profane writing can be. This is especially true to those families who inherited ties to the documents through the sacrifices of the writers and signers of the documents.

The Not-So-Great Silver Debate

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Following the stunning remarks of CFTC Commissioner, Bart Chilton, who bluntly stated that Wall Street bankers had been attempting to "deviously" and "fraudulently" manipulate the silver market, Canada's BNN made its own attempt to mimic "The Great Gold Debate." In that previous event, veteran broadcaster Jim Puplava invited Jeffrey Christian of the CPM Group, and Bill Murphy of GATA (the "Gold Anti-Trust Action" committee) to "debate" whether the gold market was being manipulated.

Will a 3rd Bush occupy the White House?

There can be no doubt that the Bush family political machine is plotting how and when to send Jeb Bush to the White House. You don't hear much about it in the news, but it's obvious. I believe the Bushes have already caused more than enough damage to America and the world.

Firstly, did Bush 41 bait/sucker Saddam into invading Kuwait? Anyone remember April Catherine Glaspie, the former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq?

IRA Harris talks about the bond sell off and the likely continuing Intervention in the Longer Dated Maturities.

For those who understand that the stock market is largely being kept afloat by giant primary dealers using derivatives and Fed POMO and Repo money, and that retail buyers and insiders have been massively in the seller column for a very long time now, it is clear that the more we extend and pretend the less attractive bonds and stocks are and the less valuable paper, debt encumbered currenicies, backed by nothing becomes. The recent technical re-weighting in the commodities indexes is offering a good change to pick up more precious metals at temporarily lower prices.

Is the World’s Richest Man Getting Into Silver?

I was listening to King World News and heard some interesting well informed speculation by James Turk and Eric King in regard to whether the world's richest man, Mexican multi-billionaire Carlos Slim may be considering getting into the silver market by taking a very large position in the silver miner Fresnillo.

Here are some excerpts from the discussion.

Getting Screwed at the State Level

Will you be gerrymandered out of your voting power?

Probably... if you live in Texas or Florida. Or probably some other places as well - BECAUSE - many state legislatures can and will redistrict even if the 2010 census didn't add or subtract a House seat.

If you are in a "safe" Democratic district, you might find a line has shifted and suddenly you are in a "safe" Republican district where your Democratic vote just gets swamped.

Your state? Do you know the danger? If you do, let us know and we will follow your fate. I mean, how often do you get an offer like that?

The Death of the Newspaper in America: The need for alternative news has never been greater.

2010 Was the year of the Death of the News Paper with an average of 40 journalists a day being fired and one news room after another being shut down. It is the year of continuing consolidation of news and where in-bedded, ministry of disinformation propaganda and infotainment and propaganda encroached even further into the Orwellian and increasingly fascist practice of legalized bribery in politics and among the elected judges via the exceedingly activist right wing conservative extremist fascist Supreme Court Majority that voted in favor of allowing unlimited money to flow to politics.

OAS Diplomat's Words Rattle Haiti’s Occupation Regime

The situation in Haiti remains largely un-changed despite all the generosity of the nations. The reason is that Haiti is exactly what the US wants, a pseudo democratic country that is controlled by a very small and extremely ruling elite who rig every election and could care less about social justice, or the welfare of the citizens of Haiti.
