Pisces = A Water sign…Keyword:  Belief

Aquarius = An Air sign…Keyword:  Knowledge

Aquarius is a scientific sign and since 1881 science has made greater advances than during the 2,000 Piscean years.  Its ruler, Uranus, governs invention, psychology, electricity and the study of the stars.  The world has adopted electricity as an important source of power (while the early 19th century had seen rapid progress in electrical science, the late 19th century would see the greatest progress in electrical engineering…electricity turned from a scientific curiosity into an essential tool for modern life, becoming a driving force of the 2nd Industrial Revolution);  inventions have revolutionized industry, astronomy has extended its boundaries from our solar system to the measurement of stars and other universes, and psychology has come to be recognized as a subject that is now studied in our schools.   Last but not least, man conquered air travel.  None of the above could have been done in an age ruled by water.

I realize this does not answer your question of astrological evidence; however, to set forth such evidence would take me nearly an hour of typing and that is out of the question.

Best wishes.

First Israeli will nuke Iran plant ,,,then Iran will Nuke Israeli and both of them will nuke Saudi ARabia because they will be so jealous that Saudi will be the only Energy Giant left again and the Whole Goddamm Place will be radioactive like Chernoble for a thousand years and there will be the Peace….!

“If they want Peace
THe only way to peace in the Mid East is to help IRAN build the Worlds biggest Nuclear Power Plant .Give them all free electricity so they will gather as close as possible withen the Power distribution Range…..Build a Second in Jeruselam because the Israeli will want equal Fair Treatment so build them one ! THen a Third in Mecca Saudi Arabia THEN withdraw ALL US and Europeans troops ….every last one…and WAIT You will have Peace finally !

Interesting theory.

How about we just withdraw US and European troops and see what happens?

Dick Russell maintains that this century is the age of Aquarius. What astrological evidence is their

of this claim ?

As an aside, a few of the Goldbugs from Downunder had a delightful stay with Illusion in New Zealand

recently and we witnessed the beautiful clear night skies under the southern cross. The A$ price of gold even rose nicely for us.

We look forward to its continued rise !

Thanks for your generous astrological input.

I thought his ideas were a little out of whack too.

I thought for sure the US, UK and Israel fully intended to destroy and disrupt every country in the M.E. for the benefit of Israel. Maybe that’s not the case, maybe it’s just unintended consequences that have gone awry.

This Policy is not about Peace

How do you know your foreign policy is a complete and total destructive nightmare? When the country you supposedly “liberated” not only turns into a horrific war zone, but all sides fighting accuse you of helping the enemy. This seems to be precisely what is happening in Iraq at the moment.

“So, let me get this straight (this is a long sentence), we’re going to be gifted with a healthcare plan we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don’t, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a congress that didn’t read it, but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke. So what ever could possibly go wrong?”

The Way Out

It’s not what most people think: a return to some hypothetical “normality,” with the ghost of Ronnie Reagan beaming down like a sun-god under his lopsided pompadour, and all the happy self-driving GM cars toodling back and forth from WalMart-to-home loaded to the scuppers with new electric pop-tart warmers and 3-D underwear printers. (Or drone deliveries of same from Amazon.com.)
I mean, surely the thinking folk out there must be asking themselves: what is the way out of this Federal Reserve three-card-monte, one-percenter-stuffing, so-called “economy,” and what is the destination of this society when that mendacious model for living fails?

I digress for a moment: there was a chap named Richard Duncan on the pod-waves this weekend (FSN Network) putting out the charming idea that quantitative easing (QE — governments “printing” money to buy their own bonds) had the effect of “cancelling debt” and that it could continue for decades to come. I don’t doubt that there are Federal Reserve officers who believe this. The part they leave out — and Mr. Duncan also left it out until pressed — is that there are consequences. Consult the operating manual of the universe, and you will find that there really is no free lunch or get-out-of-jail card.

The truth is, when you rig a money system with price interventions, distortions, and perversions, they will eventually express themselves in ways destructive to the system. In the present case of world-wide QE and central bank monkey business, these rackets are expressing themselves, finally, in wobbling currencies. In many nations, people are deeply unsure of what their money is worth, and how much it might be worth a month from now. This includes the USA, except for the moment our money is said to be magically appreciating in value compared to everyone else’s. Aren’t we special?

Get this: nothing is more hazardous than undermining people’s trust in their money.
All of this financial perfidy conceals the basic fact that the human race has reached the limits of techno-industrialism. There are too many people and not enough basic resources to grow more of them — oil, fishes, soil, ores, fertilizers — and there is no steady-state “solution” to keep that economy going. In other words, it must either grow or contract, and it can’t really grow anymore (despite the exertions of government statisticians), so the authorities are trying to provide a monetary illusion of growth, when instead we’re in contraction.

Yes, contraction. The way out is to get with the program, shed the dead-weight and go where reality wants to take you. In the USA that means do everything possible to quit supporting giant failing systems — Big Box shopping, mass motoring, GMO agribiz, TBTF banks — and get behind local Main Street integrated economies, walkable towns, regular railroads, smaller and more numerous farms, local medical clinic health care, artistry in public works, and community caretaking of the unfit. All this surely implies a reduced role for the national government, and maybe the states, too. You could call it a lower standard of living, or just a different way to live.

I don’t think we’ll go there via rational political discourse. The current instabilities around the world are so sinister that they are liable to lead to even more strenuous efforts at the top to pretend that everything’s working, and even war is one way to pretend you’re okay (and the “other guy” isn’t). Of course, war has already broken out, in the MidEast and Ukraine, and it has everything to do with the sequential failure of nations, in one way or another, to overcome the limits of techno-industrialism. America will be dragged kicking and screaming to the realization of what it needs to do. The 2016 election will be the convulsion point

We have certainly been causing a lot of trouble in the ME. You’ll get no argument from me about that. The NWO psychos must feel that it benefits them in some sense but it sure doesn’t benefit the 99% of the people in the USA in any way that I can see. … but I still don’t think that a nuclear armed Iran contributes to peace in the region … rather the reverse.



Posted by Buygold @ 10:46 on March 30, 2015  

I don’t know if new entrants to the nuke club would be “more restrained”.

OTOH, I don’t see us being more restrained either. The US, UK and Israel have this tendency not to attack nuclear armed countries directly. Kind of like bullies who know they can’t be stood up to.

Seems to me it’s pretty hypocritical to make the claim that if “they” have nukes “they” might use them. Before the hypocrites went in and destabilized the entire region there was a relative balance of power. Course, Israel has always had a leg up as they’ve been the sole nuclear power, funded and backed by the US and UK.

Apparently, that just wasn’t good enough. They need more war.

Americans HATE Obama!!

Posted by silverngold @ 10:41 on March 30, 2015  

My wife and one daughter just returned from a two week all inclusive in Acapulco Mexico. They said ALL the Americans and Canadians there that they talked to HATED Obama and his duplicity and lying rhetoric while he continues tearing down the USA.

Okay, so then who is/was stupid enough to vote for this liar in Chief and how has he managed to stay in office if Americans know he is the above?? I guess it must be all his 120+ year old supporters who represent over 6 million American votes who all voted for him, or maybe the fact that 110% of all eligible voters in some states all voted for him??

I smell a SKUNK in the woodpile and you only have months left to get him out and get rid of the smell he has created and restore your constitution before this picture becomes your future. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

China and Russia Firm Ties With High Speed Rail Link – F. William Engdahl

Posted by ipso facto @ 10:35 on March 30, 2015  

While the EU faces chocking debt crises across the Eurozone from Greece to France, Italy, Spain and investment declines amid repeated US-ordered economic and financial sanctions against Russia, the two Eurasian nations are welding long-term overland economic bonds that are making US foreign policy guru Zbigniew Brzezinski get gas pains.

TND Guest Contributor: F. William Engdahl |

The growing fusion of economic self-interest between Russia and China has just taken another major step forward with the final decision by Beijing and Moscow governments to build a critical link in a high-speed rail infrastructure that will connect Beijing and Moscow. It follows only weeks after signing major energy deals between the two Eurasian nations as Putin’s Russia continues her dramatic shift away from a contemptuous EU towards the world’s fastest-growing region.

Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich announced at a Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum on February 27 that agreement has been finalized between the two countries on a proposal made by Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang during his October 2014 visit to Moscow to construct a 7,000 km and $242 billion high-speed rail corridor going from Beijing across Kazakhstan and Russia to Moscow. The project will include a high-speed Moscow to Kazar in Russia’s Autonomous Tatarstan.

Seems to me that the more countries that have nuclear weapons then the more chance of a nuclear war. Since WW2 no country has used a nuclear weapon, do you think that new entrants into the nuclear club will be so restrained?

Not saying we should go to war with Iran but I’d prefer they don’t have nukes. JMO

Miners’ gold forward sales surged 103t last year, most since 1999 – report

LONDON – The volume of gold sold forward by mining companies rose by 103 t last year, the biggest annual increase since 1999, an industry report showed on Friday.

That far outstrips an estimate given late last year of 42 t to 52 t, after Mexican gold and silver miner Fresnillo said it was hedging 47 tonnes of output over five years.

In their quarterly Global Hedge Book Analysis, Societe Generale and GFMS analysts at Thomson Reuters said the bulk of the rise in the global gold hedge book last year was driven by Fresnillo and Russia’s Polyus Gold, which announced a major hedging deal in July.

“Of the growth in the book in 2014, the majority (85 t) came from these two companies. Together they now account for half of the outstanding global hedging,” the report said.

“What was also notable in the fourth quarter, and to a greater extent the year as a whole, was the rebalancing of the hedge book towards option contracts, rather than being dominated by forward sales,” the report added. “The two largest hedgers, Polyus Gold International and Fresnillo, were two examples to employ such structures.”

‘The US Will Let Iran Spread Terror and Go Nuclear’
“Senior security source estimates deal by tomorrow, with America ‘ignoring’ Iranian terror sponsorship and nuclear proliferation.”


The US, UK and Israel are easily the most nuclear armed terrorists on the globe, causing millions of deaths in the last three decades.

Incredible to me that such intelligent people can’t see through the propaganda.

We ALWAYS seem to forget that the US is the only country in history ever to use nukes.

I hope they all get nukes, Iran, Saudi’s, Jordan and any other country in the region that hasn’t already been destroyed by the US, UK and Israel.

China gold flows to hit Q1 record

Withdrawals from the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) remain exceptionally high despite being expected to drop following the Chinese New Year holiday. In the three weeks of trading since the holiday’s end, withdrawals from the exchange have totalled 149 tonnes which would seem to belie other reports that demand is slipping.

The latest figure from the SGE is for the movement of 53 tonnes out of the Exchange during week 11 (ended March 20), following 51 tonnes a week earlier and 45 tonnes in week 9. Total to March 20 is thus already 561 tonnes. So withdrawals from the SGE appear to be rising week on week at a time when they would normally expect to be falling back after the holiday buying spree has ended. Should the gold flows out of the exchange continue at this kind of rate, then the Q1 total figure will be of the order of 620-630 tonnes – comfortably a new Q1 record.

Even at the lower end of the likely Q1 flow level this would be 10% up on the previous highest Q1 withdrawal amount, which was 564 tonnes (this has almost been reached already with flows for seven working days yet to be announced) recorded a year ago when the full year figure was 2,102 tonnes. QI withdrawals will thus undoubtedly set a new record.

If this increase figure is indicative of the year ahead the China gold flows, as represented by SGE withdrawals, could this year reach a new record 2,300 tonnes or more – getting on for 75% of new mined supply assuming this is flat this year – CPM suggests, though, it will actually be 4.6% higher as recent new projects and expansions reach full capacity.

Suntrust Bank Cancels Account Because Company Sells Guns

Written By: Samuel M. McCall
Mar 29, 2015 @ 9:38 PM


A local Brooksville business, American Gun and Pawn, has gotten a bizarre letter from Suntrust Bank which is where the company has a checking account. The owner of American Gun and Pawn, Steve Champion, was shocked when he received the certified letter.

Unbelievably, the letter states that American Gun and Pawn is not a business that Suntrust Bank wants to do business with and gives them only ten days to close the account or it will be closed for them. No reason is given as to why Suntrust Bank has decided not to do business with them anymore.

A number is provided if the customer has any questions. Mr. Champion called the number and the person he talked to told him that they weren’t sure why Suntrust Bank was closing his account, but they did know that a lot of gun shops had received these letters all across the country. According to the representative, it was a corporate decision.

Going into business, especially the gun shop and pawn shop business, is not an easy task. Steve Champion has perfect credit and, in order to sell guns, the government has done a thorough background check. What more could a bank ask for?

When we talked to Mr. Champion, he was really frustrated and felt like the bank was discriminating against him. At the moment, he has not talked to an attorney but is planning to do so soon.

This is not the first time a huge national bank has targeted gun shops and it is well known that there is another force at work here. It is well documented that the federal government, specifically the Obama Administration, has pressured banks to drop clients that they term high risk. The official name of the program is called “Operation Choke Point.”

The program was started under Attorney General Eric Holder’s regime at the Department of Justice with the help of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

The DOJ publicly acknowledged this program on March 20, 2013, in a Washington, D.C., speech by Michael Bresnick, who was the executive director of the DOJ’s Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force. Bresnick stated that Choke Point aimed to stop banks from providing services to scammers.

Unfortunately, stopping scammers is not how “Choke Point” has actually been used in Realville. The problem with operation “Choke Point” is that it is operated in a way that not only targets criminals, but also targets law-abiding businesses that the Obama Administration deems risky i.e. gun shops.

According to The Washington Times, several firearm businesses over the last few years have reported sudden disruptions of their relationships with their banks. The Times article refers specifically to the following:

    • Powderhorn Outfitters, of Hyannis, Mass., says that it was turned down for a loan by TD Bank because of involvement in the firearm business.

    • The bank account of Black Rifle Armory, in Henderson, Nev., was frozen in May 2014, as the bank launched a search for suspicious transactions.

    • Bank of America (BoA) in 2012 ended its 12-year account relationship with McMillan Group International. Kelly McMillan says that BoA told him that the termination was because McMillan had changed from making gun parts (e.g., stocks) to manufacturing firearms.

There has been some push back to these actions that have been promulgated by the Obama Administration. According to the NRA, the following actions regarding operation “Choke Point” have been taken:

    • A new organization called “United States Consumer Coalition” has a website that provides an opportunity for whistleblowers and for victims of Choke Point to report their experiences (usconsumers.org).

    • In May, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to defund Operation Choke Point. The Senate has not yet acted on that bill. The leader of the defunding effort was Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-Mo., with his amendment to the appropriations bill for Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies.

    • Another leader has been Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, chairman of the House Committee on Financial Services. He has requested reports from the Federal Reserve and other federal financial entities if they are participating in Choke Point or similar projects.

    • Also, on June 6, the Community Financial Services Association (an association of payday lenders) filed a lawsuit against Choke Point. The case (no. 14-cv-00953) is currently in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

While Suntrust Bank is an easy target to blame, it appears that all they have really done is to cave into the pressure the Obama Administration has applied. And, that is concerning. But, let’s just remember that the real culprit is our own federal government.

Mr. Champion, there is your culprit.
