China Unveils ‘Trumpian’ Tariffs On All Foreign Goods

Having glad-handed with President Obama just this morning, and complained of a “sluggish global economy,” that ironically his credit-fuelled mal-investment maelstrom enabled via its deflationary forces, Chinese President Xi appears to have moved on from currency wars to protectionism as WSJ reports China is tightening its grip on cross-border e-commerce, imposing a new tax system on all overseas purchases. While Trumpian tariffs are dismissed as crazy talk by America’s establishment, it seems China took first-mover advantage to boost “Made-in-China” products at the expense of the rest of the world.

Former Democratic Sen. Bob Graham, who in 2002 chaired the congressional Joint Inquiry into 9/11, maintains the FBI is covering up a Saudi support cell in Sarasota for the hijackers. He says the al-Hijjis’ “urgent” pre-9/11 exit suggests “someone may have tipped them off” about the coming attacks.


Graham has been working with a 14-member group in Congress to urge President Obama to declassify 28 pages of the final report of his inquiry which were originally redacted, wholesale, by President George W. Bush.


“The 28 pages primarily relate to who financed 9/11, and they point a very strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier,” he said, adding, “I am speaking of the kingdom,” or government, of Saudi Arabia, not just wealthy individual Saudi donors.


Sources who have read the censored Saudi section say it cites CIA and FBI case files that directly implicate officials of the Saudi Embassy in Washington and its consulate in Los Angeles in the attacks — which, if true, would make 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war by a foreign government.

Better wake up America. Years ago, either during the Bush or Clinton Administration, all public lands were turned over (deeded?) to the UN. Now the UN is simply using any and every means possible to move Americans off the UN’s land. Your government has sold you out….IMO!! But the real story today is the government will take your guns, and if you resist you will be killed!!

search engine for nutrition and natural cures

Posted by aufever @ 12:40 on March 31, 2016  

(NaturalNews) With so many health conscious people around, the demand for information about nutrition and natural cures has never been as high as today. The internet is a great place to seek answers to your questions. However, the internet is a very big world, and not all pages are there to provide you with the best and most honest information.

Over the years, the internet has grown into a massive beast, and finding your way through all the conflicting information can be overwhelming and difficult. Many websites are backed up by the government, mainstream media and big corporations. They are there to brainwash the people and lead us to their way of thinking.


GoodGopher.com: The search engine for the truth seeker

GoodGopher was developed by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, and founder and editor of NaturalNews.com. As the former CEO of a successful software company, he has now used his skills to create a privacy protected search engine that benefits the people and independent media, rather than the government or big corporations.

GoodGopher.com filters out corporate propaganda and government disinformation. It is the best, and only, search engine out there for those who seek information and news on liberty, natural healing, central banks, food freedom, advanced science and a multitude of other topics no longer allowed in NSA-controlled search engines.

Looking at the shares I guess we have to anticipate a “stellar” job report. The Magic Show continues with even less resemblance to reality.

SLW seems to have one of the better management teams and business models so you might be right that they are front running higher future metal prices.

The shares in general today look weak and the scum is pulling out all the stops to prevent a breakout.

Either the USD is going to bounce back or we’ll get the standard beatdown tomorrow on the jobs report. JMHO


Nice to see some of the juniors coming alive. I thought this one was down for the count.

On a related note it’s good to see the west coast get good rainfall lately. This isn’t the year CA is going to dry up and blow away.


PS Farmland in the US is a great target for the Chinese as well. In the long run would you rather be holding US gov debt or productive land?

SLW getting smashed today. Kind of a knee jerk thing with that monster bought deal. Probably needs some recovery time …

Maybe they want to get some more streaming deals done while the miners are cash strapped?

It’s on account of the good economy …

Jobless Claims Surge Most In 2 Years As Challenger Warns Of “Significant” Jump In Retail, Computer Layoffs

With both ISM Manufacturing and Services employment indices collapsing, endless headlines of layoffs, Challenger-Grey noting Q1 as the worst since 2009, and NFIB small business hiring weak, it is no surprise that initial jobless claims is finally waking up. For the 3rd week in a row – the longest streak since July 2015. The last 3 weeks have seen a 9.1% surge in jobless claims – the biggest such rise since April 2014.

Despite the strength in the metals the scum is picking on the shares, especially the generals – NEM, ABX etc.

Same old tired game plan.

Chicago PMI comes out better than expected, not helping the USD but as usual now hurting the metals

Richard Rahn: Tyranny and Free Speech

Posted by silverngold @ 9:03 on March 31, 2016  

Some mind opening thoughts that bring to light another attack on the Constitution. Some great thought provoking comments follow if you go to the site.


Labels: Free speech, Richard Rahn from the Cato Institute, Tyranny


Do you support free speech? How about free speech for climate change skeptics? For homophobes? For racists? For sexists? For white males? For even Donald Trump?


Those who defend free speech, as did the American Founding Fathers, understand it is not about defending speech you agree with, but defending speech you disagree with. Without free speech, there is no liberty.


The State Department diversity officer, John Robinson, has just warned the staff that they may be penalized for engaging in “microaggressions,” which include jokes or other comments that someone who hears them may find offensive. In a recent letter, he referred to a definition of microaggressions as “everyday verbal, nonverbal and environmental slights, snubs or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicate hostile, derogatory or negative messages to target persons.” In other words, whatever you hear may be considered a microaggression if you choose to be offended. Such vague and infinitely elastic laws and regulations are the bread and butter of all totalitarian regimes. Lavrentiy Beria (Joseph Stalin’s head of the NKVD, a predecessor of the KGB) was quoted as saying to Stalin, “You name the person and I will find the crime.” The “crime” of microaggression has already been used to stifle and prosecute speech by those who have contrary views in several left-leaning universities, and now it is coming to the federal government.


The climate change lobbyists have been increasingly aggressive in their attacks on free speech. They seek to silence their critics, who have committed the “sin” of noting their many failed predictions. George Mason University meteorologist Jagadish Shukla was the lead signatory of the letter sent to the president and attorney general asking them to use RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) laws to prosecute “corporations and other organizations that have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change.” Mr. Shukla “paid himself and his wife $1.5 million from government climate grants for part-time work.” Other prominent global warming fear-mongers, who are on the government teat, have also called for “war crimes trials” and even the “execution” of some critics. Even Attorney General Loretta Lynch said last week she has looked at the possibility of pursuing civil actions against so-called “climate change deniers.” The message: Don’t look to the Obama administration to protect free speech.Which do you find more offensive, a person advocating socialism or a person telling jokes about one-eyed people? Socialism is an ideology that has resulted in governments killing more than 200 million of their own citizens in the last century. It is based on coercion rather than liberty. It demands involuntary servitude. Socialist Bernie Sanders promises “free” stuff to his supporters to be paid for by the involuntary servitude of others — to which there will be no end. Having spent considerable time in socialist countries and seen the human wreckage that results, I am offended by the ignorance or venality of those who engage in the microaggression of advocating socialism. Several decades ago, I lost an eye, and in the years since I have been told hundreds of “one-eyed” jokes, even by people who do not know me. Rather than being offended, I have chosen to enjoy them. Offensive speech is totally subjective, and making it a crime is incompatible with a free society.


The Guardian, a left-wing British newspaper, published an article last year by a woman author titled, “Why do women lie more than men?” It reported on a new poll that “suggests that women are twice as likely to lie as men.” The article goes on to say: “It may be irritating to be told, yet again, that women are more morally slippery than men (just as in Genesis).” The article goes on to cite several reasons why this may be true — including differences “between masculine and feminine brains.”


All of this may or may not be nonsense, but in cases of women complaining about men engaging in “offensive” speech, it is most often assumed, without evidence, that the woman is telling the truth and the man is lying. In fact, men are frequently not allowed to know who their accuser is or what she claimed was said. One of the most basic protections of liberty is the right of the accuser to know the specific charges against him or her and by whom. As a result, many innocent men are not given a fair hearing by the human resource departments in organizations and even sometimes by the courts.


The late well-regarded feminist, Joan Kennedy Taylor, argued in her book “What to Do When You Don’t Want to Call the Cops: Or a Non-Adversarial Approach to Sexual Harassment” (Cato Institute) that it is important to understand that men and women perceive things quite differently, and that non-legal strategies which she describes can be far more effective and less damaging than legal remedies. Law professor Catherine Ross has just written an important book, “Lessons in Censorship” (to be discussed at a Cato book forum on March 16), in which she argues that “the failure of schools to respect civil liberties betrays their educational function and threatens democracy.”


The popularity of the verbally crude Donald Trump might, in part, be a reaction to the political correctness of the political class and timid leaders of organizations who have failed to defend freedom of speech.



Richard Rahn is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and chairman of the Institute for Global Economic Growth.

Guess another example of gov prostitutes selling out the country.

Refining the Constitution of the United States

The founding fathers of this country had a grand vision… and experience with what does not work.  They did their best with the constitution, but who could foresee the future and how that constitution would be subverted?   With hindsight, these are the improvements I would add… if I could… to how our once-great country is run.


First and foremost, find a way to enforce the monetary system the way it was designed, as a free-market gold and silver of honest weights and measures, with price discovery on a purely cash basis.
Other valuable physical commodities may also be used as a basis for the value of the monetary system.   No futures contracts allowed on the monetary system.   And some way to enforce that founding law absolutely with no interference from future congress…not ever.  The federal government may issue money which value shall be founded on the trade value equivalents of gold and silver or other valuable commodity.  Congress shall not abdicate it’s responsibility to administer the monetary system of the country.  Money issuance shall never again be ‘contracted’ out to a private banking system.

State that congress shall not ‘interpret’ the constitution in a ‘modern way’, professing theories of what the founders might have meant.  The constitution means exactly what it says, in plain language, not open to ‘interpretation’.

Congress shall make no laws that plainly contravene the constitution.  Penalties enforced for any congressmen or government official that attempts to subvert the constitution, including dismissal from any elected office held.  A jury of ordinary citizens should be empaneled to decide if any questionable law conforms to the constitution, on a case-by-case basis.  Any such constitutional juror may only serve once on such a panel.  Constitutional jurors shall be selected at random from the population.

Congress shall make no privileged laws that apply only to themselves.  Any law passed will apply equally to all citizens including congressmen.  Congressional pay shall be determined by the State legislature in the state that each represents.

No federal elected official will serve more than two terms in their lifetime, and members of their immediate family will be ineligible  to hold elected office.  There shall be no dynastic political class with lifetime re-elections.

All election financing and political contributions shall come ONLY from the district that the elected official represents.  There shall be no national “political action” groups financing distant special interests.

Corporations are a legal ‘person’ for business purposes ONLY.  A corporate ‘person’ shall be absolutely prohibited from ANY political action, including donations to any political candidate, political group, or political action lobbying.  Any corporation found violating this shall be dissolved.  This shall be a government of the ‘natural born’ people only.

The government shall not engage in welfare for the citizens, nor distribute dole to the population.  Charity and welfare shall be encouraged at the state and local levels where it is most effective.  Citizens shall be encouraged to provide for themselves and their own future needs.  The government shall not engage in the redistribution of wealth through taxation and redistribution.  The government may, however, provide temporary short term, emergency funding and assistance in the event of a declared disaster or emergency, to provide for the benefit of the locality, state, or nation as a whole.


If I were to found a self-sustaining settlement on another planet, this is what I would start with.  The economy would be founded on a free market and naturally organic growth.
Of course this will never happen in our lifetimes, but it would be nice to document for the future just what we found wrong with our country in present times, and how we would dream of ‘fixing’ it, if we could.   This list is by no means complete.  I invite other free thinkers to adjust and add to this list of things YOU would do to fix the problems we see with how the constitution had been circumvented.

Ideas are welcome.  Add your thoughts to the list.   At the very least, we can leave a digital record for the future!
