CNBC is careful to admit that owning GLD is not owning gold

Chris Powell of GATA writes today about how he finds it interesting that CNBC are careful to admit that owning the GLD ETF is not the same thing as owning physical gold, a theme that has run strongly throughout our market commentaries for many years.

He writes…

Two cheers for today’s CNBC report celebrating the 15th anniversary of the gold exchange-traded fund GLD, since the report does not pretend that owning GLD is the same as owning the monetary metal itself.

POMPEO ISSUES HISTORIC POLICY REVERSAL: ISRAELI WEST BANK SETTLEMENTS 'NOT ILLEGAL'

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
In a major, if entirely expected, complete reversal of Obama-era policy on the Middle East, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Monday the Trump administration is reversing the official US stance on the illegality of Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

“After carefully studying all sides of the legal debate, this administration agrees with President Reagan,” Pompeo said in reference to Reagan’s view that settlements were not inherently illegal. “The establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not per se inconsistent with international law,” Pompeo said.

“The Trump administration is reversing the Obama administration’s approach towards Israeli settlements. U.S. public statements on settlement activities in the West Bank have been inconsistent over decades.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Secretary of State Pompeo, are you flipping kidding me?!?

By this "logic", you have started down the "slippery, bloody slope" which will soon necessitate your supporting the following:

1. " Palestine never existed."
2. "All Palestinians who protest peacefully should be shot on sight, including infants and toddlers."
3. Palestinian children should be indefinitely jailed, and if necessary, tortured for "information" on the adults in their family and neighborhood who have said, or done anything, which was anti-Israel in nature, and forced to sign confessions in a language they can neither read, write, nor speak (Hebrew).

As you are well aware, all of these practices have been painstakingly documented to exist.

Also, as you are well aware, the way in which these settlements have been engineered, translates as to a total impossibility for there to be a contiguous Palestinian state, as documented by the following article in January of this year, from the Foundation for Middle East Peace:: Settlement Report: January 11, 2019

The article goes on to state: "Israeli officials have argued that the now-open road should resolve international objections to building the E-1 settlement, since it preserves “transportational continuity” by providing a route for Palestinians to travel between between the northern and southern parts of the West Bank, as a substitute for territorial contiguity of a future Palestinian state).

When construction on the road resumed in 2017 after being stalled for a long period, Peace Now explained:

“If the road will be completed…Israel will be able to argue that Israeli construction in the area does not separate the West Bank because there is a transportation route for Palestinians. This argument, of course, is baseless because a thin line of road that connects separated territorial sections (creating ‘transportational continuity’) does not meet the need for the territorial contiguity essential for the development of East Jerusalem and the Palestinian metropolis. Without these territories, a viable independent Palestinian state cannot be built and prosper, and this could mean the death of the two-state solution.”

Secretary of State Pompeo, I very politely, and gently, urge you to step back from this precipice where you are taking the world, sir; and that precipice is a world war, the outcome of which cannot be pre-determined, and may destroy life on earth as we have known it.

Solar Panels Produce Tons of Toxic Waste—Literally

By Bill Wirtz

Beyond the clear misallocation of resources and energy market price distortions, there is a further environmental problem associated with solar panels.

Beyond the inefficient use of these resources to begin with (in the process of making crystalline silicon from silicon, as much as 80 percent of the raw silicon is lost), there are numerous human health concerns directly related to the manufacture and disposal of solar panels...

US Dirty Hands Behind Violent Protests in Iran?

All sovereign independent countries not subservient to US interests are on its target list for regime change — by preemptive wars, color revolutions, old-fashioned coups, targeted assassinations, economic terrorism, and/or other hostile actions.

Color revolutions are a US specialty. So-called spontaneous uprisings are well-planned in advance by the CIA, the undemocratic National Endowment for Democracy, and other US agencies.

A color revolution was first used to oust Serbia’s Slobodan Milosevic in 2000. Opposition elements were recruited and trained by the US for what played out.

Nolte: ‘Charlie’s Angels’ Is Fifth Woketard Franchise to Die at Box Office

The 2019 reboot/sequel of Charlie’s Angels just opened to a catastrophic $8 million, making it the fifth man-hating, woketard franchise to get wiped out at the box office.

Angels, which was written and directed by Elizabeth Banks, is not only under-performing expectations by about 50 percent, it got run over by Ford v Ferrari, a movie about real men who throw punches and burn fossil fuels.

On top of being number one at the box office with a $30 million opening, Ford v Ferrari over-performed by about 50 percent.

Having seen and reviewed both, I can tell you that none of this has to do with gender.

Angels is a failure because it features unappealing actresses who are more interested in lecturing us than showing us a good time. The film’s trailers promised a pretentious feminist lecture full of man-hating… and the sexless movie delivered.

THE US-SPONSORED COUP THAT OUSTED EVO MORALES. BOLIVIA'S PARTNERSHIP WITH CHINA IN LITHIUM PRODUCTION

Will Bolivia’s partnership with China in lithium mining come to an end with Morales’s overthrow? It is very likely. But the larger trend towards change in Latin America and the Caribbean in which Morales’s contribution was pivotal will continue. Opposition to the military backed coup in Bolivia is strong and sustained.

Doug Casey on How the Homeless Crisis Could Soon Become an Epidemic

There is a growing homeless crisis in liberal West Coast cities, including San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, and many others. People living on the street are overrunning these cities.

Residents must deal with human feces, syringes, disease, and filth every day. In some areas, it’s worse than the dirtiest slums of Brazil, Kenya, and India.

How did this happen?

US CONGRESS CRACKS DOWN ON ABC NEWS FOR ‘EPSTEIN COVERUP’, DEMANDS TO KNOW WHO KILLED THE STORY AND WHY

SOURCE: RT
In the wake of explosive revelation that ABC News allegedly knew the extent of Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes years ago but chose not to report them, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has demanded answers from the network’s execs.
In his letter to ABC News president James Goldston, McCarthy demanded the names of those involved in the decision not to run the story, as well as their motives. In a video clip leaked earlier this month, ABC News anchor Amy Robach is caught on a “hot mic” speaking to colleagues about the alleged cover-up.

“I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts...we would not put it on the air,” Robach says about the woman who now three years later publicly accuses Epstein of using her as a sex slave, and pimping her out to his powerful friends, including Britain’s Prince Andrew.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Media power always cracks down on any exposure on corruption, because, most generally, very powerful people include some of the most corrupt in their own industries, and frequently government.

And I would strongly caution Minority Leader McCarthy that, unless your life has been virtuously squeaky clean, these people, and will, can come back to haunt you.

Trump Promises Farmers More Aid Amid Plunging Incomes 

President Trump tweeted:

Our great Farmers will receive another major round of “cash,” compliments of China Tariffs, prior to Thanksgiving. The smaller farms and farmers will be big beneficiaries. In the meantime, and as you may have noticed, China is starting to buy big again. Japan deal DONE. Enjoy!

One reason behind the continued bailout of US farmers is because the trade war continues to deepen as there is no resolution in ending trade disputes with China.

There's also a significant concern that the first round of bailouts went to large corporate farms and never trickled down to smaller mom-and-pop ones. By late year, farm incomes have plunged, and farm bankruptcies are soaring across the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, this comes way too little, and way too late to help out those most savagely hit by your trade wars; US farmers are losing money hand over fist; and losing their farms at a record rate in this country.

You may well have done considerable damage to your base for the 2020 elections, and sir, on this; you have no one else but yourself to blame.

This Is How The Chinese Are Evading Capital Controls And Secretly Getting Money Out Of The Country

Submitted by Eric Peters, CIO of One River Asset Management

"The only way I know to get money out is to set up a Japanese company,” he whispered.

“That’s why so many Chinese nationals are in Japan. First of all, you can get a visa and permanent residency. Second of all, Japan and China don’t exchange tax information because they’re still bent out of shape about WWII. And thirdly, China’s police can’t come get you. Chinese billionaires don’t get ‘disappeared’ in Japan like they do in HK and NY,” he explained.

“That’s why they’re buying homes in Tokyo and Osaka."

"Despite capital controls, you can settle renminbi transactions in Yen,” he continued.

Are Democrats "Gerrymandering The Population" With Their Open-Borders Plans?

As The Daily Caller's Virginia Kruta notes, Davi also referenced the Immigration and Naturalization Act, passed by former President Lyndon B. Johnson and “argued by Teddy Kennedy,” saying that they had promised the law would not encourage further illegal immigration.

“This is what’s happening, it’s pure and simple,” Davi continued.

“What they want to do is change the shape and the ideology of this nation by letting people in that have not been educated in the system. Trish, I was just in New York, I spoke to immigrant cab drivers from Bangladesh to the Dominican Republic, guys that are working their butts off that have been here legally, and they’re angry.”

Demon Technology: 5G vs. Human Race

LIVING DANGEROUSLY

Over 180 scientists and doctors in almost 40 countries are warning the world about 5G health risks. These scientists spell it out in a recent letter in response to ‘Resolution 1815 of the Council of Europe’:

“We, the undersigned scientists, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation 5G until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF)… and has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.”

If you’re not alarmed about 5G radiation dangers, you should be.

The Zionist Path to NWO - US Imperialism

Humanity has a choice between a Communist (Left, globalism)
and Zionist (Right, nationalism) path to world government Rothschild tyranny,
aka "globalism."

The Communist path is epitomized by George Soros and everything
he epitomizes ( Satanism, EU, gender dysphoria, migration.)

If Neocon Thomas Barnett's Pentagon's New Path (2004) is any indication,
US imperialism is the hod carrier for Zionist NWO.

Ultimately, the goal may be to start a world war between
the Communists (Russia, China, Iran & EU?) and the Zionists (US, UK, & Israel?)

Longtime readers will remember the first time I put cannabis investing on your radar.

That was over two years ago.

At the time, there were only a couple dozen publicly traded cannabis companies. Today, there are over 300.

New ones seem to be popping up each week. Others are merely adding “cannabis” or cannabis-related words to their company names to tap into the green gold rush.

FLASHBACK: President Morales Calls Out U.S. Foreign Policy as Trump Listens in UN Security Council Meeting

If the U.S. cared, it “would not have threatened with military intervention democratically elected governments as it has done with #Venezuela,” the Bolivian president continued in his denunciation of American violations of #InternationalLaw. “The United States could not care less about human rights nor justice. If this were the case, it would have signed the international conventions and treaties for the have protection of human rights.”

President #Trump wore a small earpiece to hear the English translation while others wear larger ones at the UN Security Council meeting.

“In no way is the United States interested in upholding democracy. If such were the case it would not have financed coups d'etat and supported dictators,” said Evo Morales, President of Bolivia.

“Morales was in a position to make the statements because Bolivia is one of the nonpermanent slots on the council. ” - The Hill, Justin Wise - 09/26/18

Google Faces Antitrust Probes By 48 States And DOJ -- Use Presearch

By Aaron Kesel

Google is facing an antitrust violation investigation into its practices of its search and Android software in all 48 states, Puerto Rico and Washington DC by their respective attorneys general, CNBC reported.

The states investigating Google are preparing to expand their antitrust probe beyond the company’s advertising business to its search and Android businesses.

The attorneys general will write up subpoenas known as civil investigative demands, or CIDs, to support the ongoing investigation into Google’s practices. According to CNBC, “states will carry out the investigations of search and Android separately, the people said. It wasn’t clear which states would look at those businesses, however.”...

Kelly Johnson and The Skunk Works.

http://www.p38assn.org/Personnel/kelly-johnson.htm

The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird (so named for its heat-resistant black paint) first flew in 1964, and since that time it has remained the world's fastest aircraft. Tanks in the inner wings and upper fuselage carry the 80,000 pounds of special, superheated fuel.
Few weapon systems have ever entered the military arena with such blinding superiority as did the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. No weapon system has ever maintained that same degree of superiority over a period of four decades. Today, the Blackbird is still the fastest, highest-flying, most-effective reconnaissance aircraft in history, even though budgetary considerations have caused it to be withdrawn from active service.

When Money Is The Problem

By Biblicism Institute

What made America great was the fact that the average joe could work hard and provide for his family.

It was called the American Dream. But somewhere along the way something went wrong, and the dream became a nightmare.

WHAT WENT WRONG

The biggest culprit in the death of the American Dream is the US Federal Government.

In general, when a government stays put and does not infringe on the personal and financial lives of its people, one can almost bet that things will remain pretty stable.

Vladimir Putin Sums Up The New World Order In 5 Words

Russian President Vladimir Putin succinctly summarized the shifting tectonic plates of geopolitics.

Ben Rickert
@Ben__Rickert
Vladimir Putin: "The Dollar Enjoyed Great Trust Around The World. But For Some Reason It Is Being Used As A Political Weapon, Imposing Restrictions. Many Countries Are Now Turning Away From The Dollar As A Reserve Currency. US Dollar Will Collapse Soon."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin is not saying this to hear himself talk; it is a financial reality for him.

So please, readers; do not have any more money in the bank than enough to cover your bills; think about investing in silver and gold, and make sure you have some potable water; storable food; and extra of what ever meds you and the family may be taking.

Between a potentially collapsing currency, coupled with massive food shortages, due to unplantable cropland in the US, you will thank yourself for doing this now.

Human rights abuse accusations proliferate in Chile unrest

Father-of-three Alex Nunez was returning from work in October during a military curfew imposed to curb violent protests in Chile’s capital Santiago when, his family say, he was chased by three police officers who beat him badly.

Nunez, a 39-year-old repairman, made it home that night but was rushed to hospital, where he died from his injuries shortly afterwards.

“Only 5% of his brain was working. They couldn’t operate,” his widow Natalia Perez told Reuters at her home in the low-income Santiago area of Maipu.

“He had a brain injury, cerebral edema and fractured skull.”

Police did not respond to a request for comment on the case and Reuters could not independently verify the family’s account.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When innocently walking home becomes an "offence against civil government", something is very, seriously screwed up with that country's moral compass.
