Re higher rates: Your “It’s the only way to get ahead of inflation.” “Still a ways off, but history rhymes.”

I believe the 21% rates was a HUGE mistake, totally wrong approach, (obvious by ’01) and was an emergency stopgap measure. They were losing it, and had to “cheat” or “fake it in”.
Like when you’re trying to get a part thru the inspection dept, and it’s out of tolerance. Risky business if it’s an aircraft part.
What they did was much worse than cheating on an aircraft part. Twenty-seven years ago was a blip in time regarding the US economy.
History is out the window imo. This is a new mutant strain they created and are dealing with. The cheating has caught up to them.
Even I would have a problem straightening THIS mess out. 🙂 🙂

goldielocks @ 13:40 MMS & Ebola

Posted by Maya @ 20:30 on August 4, 2014  

The MMS  ‘chlorine dioxide’ works, if I recall correctly, on the principle that the body tissues are normally slightly alkaline, and any infection becomes acidic. That’s what it attacks. It carries a strong ionic charge that literally ‘explodes’ on contact with an infected cell and oxidizes any pathogens. Once it does that, there is still more… The breakdown component is chloric acid which is taken up by the white blood cells and is used by their natural killer mechanism to attack infection even further. So the MMS attacks infection directly, and then turbo-charges your own immune system even further.

I can testify that it works amazingly well against a flu infection… especially if you catch it early. I also had Tamiflu once, which worked fairly well, But the MMS was far faster and stronger in squashing the flu virus literally overnight for me.

MMS is the first thing I reach for if I feel like a virus coming on.

old-timer @ 13:12 Theatre Car

Posted by Maya @ 20:27 on August 4, 2014  

The “Fox River” theatre car was named for the Fox River valley in Wisconsin, where the C&NW line went up the east side of the state. This is the car that ‘sold’ a railroad… literally!

The Chicago & NorthWestern ran streamliner passenger service between Chicago and Minneapolis, in competition with the Milwaukee Road “Hiawatha” passenger service along a different route. The two roads agreed not to compete on time schedules, and the timetable schedules of both railroads were fixed at 400 minutes, end-to-end. So the C&NW named their premier streamliner “The 400”. (Later they began calling all their other branch passenger trains by the “400” moniker also.) Well, the “400” passenger service on the C&NW died sometime in the 1960s.

Forward to the mid-1980s and the C&NW could read the writing on the wall of rail mergers and reduced profitability. They decided to put together a fancy “business train” to market the railroad, and painted it up like the old 400 streamliners. The locomotives were numbered 400 and up, and all the passenger cars carried 400-series numbers.


The “Fox River” theatre car was specially built for this business train to market the railroad to other railroad executives… most notably to the Union Pacific railroad. The C&NW spent the next few years wooing the UP for a buyout, and carting their corporate people all over the C&NW rails and coverage areas to market the railroad for a buyout/merger.


Finally, in April, 1995, about a year after the above image, the C&NW was bought out and completely absorbed into the Union Pacific railroad. Apparently the UP liked the ‘Fox Valley’ theatre car so much that they kept it for their own business & inspection fleet, and today it wears UP colors.

Thanks for the comeback. Regarding your part….

“Apart from a brief hiatus while Communism was around”

Huh? I’m sure you did not mean that. Communism is bigger than ever these days. North Vietnam took back S Vietnam, and the USA got shotgun weddinged or allied to communist China and communist Russia. So even the USA is a little tainted.

The only ones enjoying capitalism (unfettered business activity) are the big global banking and big global corporations that do as they please across international borders.

This would explain why Obama is saying things like asking for corporate patriotism, and telling corporations to stop complaining. I strongly suspect all the elected representatives of most countries got DUPED into going along the globalization agenda. Good for global business, and good for global leftist socialist interests.

Taking wealth from the rich countries and giving it to poor countries (and big business) works until they ran out of money in the rich countries, like now.

Now, without a well off tax PAYING middle class, various politicians and other tax absorbers, in many countries are having various deficit and food stamp etc problems because of that. They now realize in the once wealthy countries, big business is not their country’s friend. (big corporations the cat that swallowed the canary)

Wisdom gained over the years shows up, in my opinion, in the message you posted at 16:33. I liked that message, and agree that promotion of trade, not provocation of military confrontations, should be the preferred goal. Have a pleasant day. Equiz.

New York City Hospital Quarantines Man With Ebola-Like Symptoms Who Walked Into ER

Tyler Durden's picture

UPDATE (via Mt.Sinai Press Conference):As CBS reports,

A patient at Mount Sinai hospital is being tested after traveling to a country where the Ebola virus is present, the hospital said in a statement.


The man arrived at Mount Sinai’s emergency room early Monday morning with high fever and gastrointestinal symptoms.


The man told doctors he had recently traveled to a West African country where Ebola is present, the hospital said.


The man has been placed in “strict isolation” and is undergoing various tests to determine the cause of the symptoms, the hospital said.


All appropriate steps to keep patients, staff and visitors safe are being taken, the hospital said.

Let’s hope we do not start adding to this…

Ipso – thanks for the ANV earnings, seems the shares are stabilizing right now.

R640 – I had the same problem with the Login/remember me thing. I restarted the computer a few times and then one day and it worked. Now I’m logged in whether I like it or not. 🙂

Watching the movie “Lone Survivor” now, so will be out for a bit. Have the real scoop about the guys sent on the mission, nothing fancy but according to my sources these guys were good team guys but were SDV (swimmer delivery vehicle) specialists who wanted to go on an Afghanistan mission to prove themselves – but that was not their specialty, so when things went bad, well they went really bad.

Enjoy your evenings and keep posting at Oasis!

JP Morgan has finally been caught and sanctioned for playing games with its position reporting in gold and silver in order to hide the true magnitude of its unhedged short positions on the Comex

The CFTC Commitment Of Trader Data Is Rigged After All

Myself and few others – primarily GATA – have been suggesting for quite some time that contract open interest data the CME reports for the Comex is rigged. While certain newsletter peddlers adamantly maintain the reports are accurate and honest in order to preserve their franchise, there’s nothing like a the CFTC imposing a fine on JP Morgan for fraudulently reporting “large trader” data:CFTC Charges JP Morgan With Reporting Fraud.

JP Morgan has finally been caught and sanctioned for playing games with its position reporting in gold and silver in order to hide the true magnitude of its unhedged short positions on the Comex. That JP Morgan does this is obvious to anyone who has spent several years studying and trading the Comex.

After all, how are the CFTC’s COT reports compiled? They come from big banks who are the primary Comex market-makers, of course. There’s no independent audit of the numbers and reports sourced from the banks and submitted to the CME and the CFTC. It’s a “trust us” job – wink wink.

IF JP Morgan et al were to be honestly and accurately reporting the data published by the CME and CFTC, it would be the ONLY area of their financial reporting that is not completely engulfed with fraud.

Anyone who chooses to believe otherwise either has ulterior motives – like making a lot of money selling newsletters – or still believes in Santa Claus.

Will We Kick The Table Over?

I think that it is becoming very clear that we are headed over a cliff in every way imaginable. All you need to do is look around, we are at the edge economically, financially, socially, geopolitically and morally. Let me help you “look around” at where I think we are.

Just this past week alone we were told that we had “solid” unemployment numbers with a job gain of 209,000. Really? When you break the numbers down it turns out that “older” workers are working harder than ever as evidenced by more elderly workers in the workforce than ever before. The age group of 25-54 LOST 142,000 during July, is this “growth?” Argentina defaulted and JP Morgan is buying their bonds because it seems that they may have sold a few CDS (credit default swaps) and may be on the hook for a few billion dollars. Manufacturing and construction spending numbers in the U.S. were dismal at the same time we were told that the economy grew by 4%.

Please understand that this “4%” number was calculated with less than a 2% inflation assumption, is there anybody out there that is experiencing less than 5% inflation much less more like 8-10%? It seems to me that our economic numbers are being made up as we go, a perfect example is this. New orders which in reality were the lowest of the year were “seasonally adjusted” and then reported as the highest of the year. Isn’t this the type of stuff that Russia and China did in years gone by?

The U.S. is engineering itself into a quarantined corner with sanctions on Russia and fines to large foreign institutions. What really struck a chord with me was a story that Germany is in secret talks with Russia to ratify the Crimean annexation in exchange for a long term natural gas guarantee. This is not confirmed news but it does make sense, perfect sense. The U.S. has spied on Germany including their President Angela Merkel. We are in the process of fining both Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank. The Fed even wants their own regulators inside of DB. And don’t forget, we “owe” some pretty big tonnage of gold to Germany that we are “dragging our feet” on for some reason …but it couldn’t be because the gold is gone, could it? Ask yourself, what happens to all of Europe were Germany to turn their back on the U.S.? Europe will be an overnight domino chain that shuns the dollar. By the way, Russia and India are now in talks to settle their direct trade in rubles and rupees with the dollar nowhere to be seen.

The “old world order” is crumbling. Just look at what is going on between the U.S. and Israel. We are now publicly scolding what was not long ago our most staunch ally on the planet. Israel’s largest TV station is sticking by a story they broke that President Obama and Mr. Netanyahu had a conversation where Israel basically defied the U.S. Both Israel and The White House have denied this but it certainly “smells” very true to me. Even if not true, Bibi Netanyahu one day later publicly told the U.S. and I quote, “Do not ever second guess me again,” can you ever imagine an Israeli Prime Minister saying this? Another past ally, Turkey has turned their back on the U.S. and just loaded their 5th supertanker with Kurdish oil which will almost certainly be sold and settled without dollars. The icing on the geopolitical cake this past week was India not agreeing to the WTO trade deal and letting the deadline pass without signing. We are fast becoming a political pariah and one that from a business standpoint, no one trusts anymore.

Over the past two to three weeks, more and more stories are surfacing that the U.S. plans some sort of “first strike” in a nuclear fashion. If true, I can only say that the psychopaths who are running the show are more insane than I have given them credit for. I do understand it however. The economy is crumbling and the “mindset” of the public is a growing disbelief. I think that the average Joe out there is looking at what is happening with our border situation and sees that it’s not a “mistake” or an honest error which has him questioning other topics. The problem is that “average Joe” is beginning to connect some of the dots and in my opinion will need some “distraction” to disrupt the process.

This whole policy of encircling and threatening Russia really ticks me off. It’s pointless and dangerous and the only beneficiaries are those who make profits from the military. We’ve got our southern border wide open for any enemy to come in and we’re too busy causing trouble in Eurasia to deal with it. Grrrrrrr!

Amazing Contrast Foreign Policy and Negotiating

Posted by Ororeef @ 16:33 on August 4, 2014  

Reagan and Gorby ,     Nixon & Chou En Lai   two successful US Negotiators   Both well respected by their counterparts.

Reagan defeated Russia economically but made them a friend. Nixon divided the two big Communists country’s and opened up China (the China Card)

Contrast that with Carter Iranian Hostage   negotiations , that Reagan had to fix… Obama,   Putin  failures  .Obama managed to make an enemy from a friend Russia tried to help by warning of Boston Bombing O,simply brushed him aside….Russia was our ally in WW2 ,now Obama makes him an enemy along with Germany our friend that we SPY on !….everything is upside down….this failure pushed Germany and Russia together against USA colossal Foreign policy failure ! He should be making Russia a friend and bring them into the European group.or better yet Russia US England.  We need someone to export to, Russia would be ideal for consumer goods…Food,Frozen Chickens,Pigs,Farm Equipment,auto,oil services,Fracking,Gas LNG facilities.WE should trade with Russia ans stop this Political nonsense.
