Why Did Lois Lerner Walk?, 1804 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

- Life Change Tea: Rid Your Body From Toxins! https://www.GetTheTea.com Good morning, Im still reporting on: Why Did Lois Lerner Walk?, 1804 Synopsis: In another more lawful time, the Lois Lerner / John Kosekin IRS scandal would have been front-page news in the Washington Post for months on end. But during the lawless years of the Obama administration, the IRS scandal was dwarfed by not only the magnitude of the other scandals, but the sheer number of them Benghazi the Hillary Clinton emails which revealed not only thousands of felonies for security violations but pay-for-play and bribery that in some cases went into pure treason. You need go no further than the Russian Uranium One deal, as just one example. Then there is the still unfolding Debbie Wasserman Schultz scandal which may yet yield a treasonous pipeline for highly-classified information from Congressional intelligence committees out to enemies of the United States. And thats not even to mention the alleged and ever-growing Clinton Crime Syndicates mysterious deaths list. Ive said it before, but it bears repeating. This overarching fear of the Clintons has hung over the nations capitol like a seething, black cloud since they arrived in 1992 carrying this reputation with them from Arkansas. The most concise explanation of what happened in the IRS scandal was tucked into the weekly Judicial Watch update. To summarize, nothing will be done because the Jim Comey FBI, and the Lorretta Lynch InJustice Department to illegally conspire with the IRS to have them give them one million records on Americans so they could go after people on Obama/Clinton yet-to-be revealed enemies list, to try to suppress anti-Clinton votes during the election season.

So, Ill break it up into two or more pieces. Here Fitton explains why he is still having to fight in court for every Clinton email disclosure. [insert] So thats the importance of the Democrats blocking all the new Trump appointees. Folks like Jeff Sessions are outnumbered in the Injustice Department by what a thousand to one. So I wonder how that works? Does AG Sessions put out a memo of an intended action and then ask for a vote within his department? [insert] In other words, when it comes to the Clintons 25-year reign in Washington, they are above the rule of law, and everyone who has protected them over the years is above the rule of law as well.

Mexico, Colombia & Laos want Russian grain "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

https://www.rt.com/business/403813-russia-wheat-new-exports/

The flourishing Russian agriculture sector is gaining momentum as more countries start buying the countrys grain. Laos, Colombia, and Mexico, are the newest customers according to Russias food and safety watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor.

New markets are opening, like Laos and Colombia, which have never before purchased grain from us Mexico also began buying; we have already supplied about 300,000 tons of grain, the head of Rosselkhoznadzor Sergey Dankvert told Rossiya 24 TV Channel.

He said the 2017 wheat harvest is high quality and its necessary to keep it up because markets are won by good quality.

According to Dankvert, its important to diversify grain production. We need to produce the same amount of wheat, increasing, for example, the production of corn because of major importers like Iran and Turkey, he said.

Russia has recently boosted wheat export contracts on expectations of a record grain harvest. According to the Moscow-based grain consultant ProZerno, the country is projected to harvest 130.7 million metric tons this year. It is 2.6 percent more t...

New Zealand election result is anyones guess..National Party wins most votes but not enough to govern outright "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2017/09/22/nz-election-result-anyones-guess

Two months ago New Zealands centre-right ruling National Party looked set to secure itself a fourth term in office.

Despite the shock resignation of Prime Minister John Key last December the party had retained its popularity and was well ahead in the polls under the leadership of Bill English.

But in recent weeks New Zealand politics has experienced more twists and turns than anyone could have reasonably predicted.

It started with three leadership changes.

The opposition Labour Party switched out its leader Andrew Little for deputy Jacinda Ardern at the beginning of August, skyrocketing its popularity in the polls from its lowest results in decades to its best since the Helen Clark days.

The Green Party weathered a scandal that claimed co-leader Metiria Tureis job her admission she committed benefit fraud coincided with a drop from a record high poll result of 16 per cent to below 5 per cent, a figure that, under Mixed-Member Proportional (MMP) voting would see the party booted from parliament.

Weekend reading "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Its always useful to look at your country through the eyes of foreign observers.  I strongly encourage people to read this FT article, which discusses political correctness on campuses:

Since then, there has been a backlash against individual professors that seems only a step or two away from a Cultural Revolution-style shame circle.

If I were teaching freshman English, Id have students read a book on the Cultural Revolution, as well as 1984 and Brave New World.  Just to give them a better sense of whats happening in their own time and place.

If you look closely, however, there are actually two separate issues highlighted in the pieceleft wing bias, and obsession with safe spaces.  As this Reason post shows, Republican students are almost as dismissive of free speech as Democrats:

[Among college students] Just 44 percent of self-identified Republicans said that hate speech was protected by the First Amendment, compared with 39 percent of Democrats and 40 percent of independents.

It seems like the extreme fear of being made uncomfortable is a generational thing, which crosses party lines.  (BTW, dont take this as a typical boomer post trashing young people.  I think the millennials are much better than my generation in all sorts of dimensions.  For instance, they seem more polite and less violent.)

When I heard about Professor Weinsteins problems at Evergreen College, I wondered if I was getting the full story.  Maybe he was sort of provoking the students.  And then I read this, about another Evergreen professor:

Nancy Koppelman, an American studies and humanities professor, described being followed by white students who yelled and cursed at me, accused me of not caring about black and brown bodies, and claimed that if I did care I would follow their orders. Ms. Koppelman, who is 5-foot-1, said the students towered over her, and the only thing they would accept was my obedience. She reported that the encounter so unnerved her that she was left physically shaking.

During the Chinese Cultural Revolution, many of the victims were themselves devoted communists, who passioniately believed in the cause.  In Americas Cultural Revolution many of the victims are progressive faculty members.

During the early years of blogging, I followed bloggingheads.tv.  The best talks involved Glenn Loury and John McWhor...

Youre Likely A Lot Less Prepared For Crisis Than You Realize "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The recent hurricanes are merely reminders that sometimes things happen that are out of our control. They remind us that risk still exists.

Our longstanding view is that theres a financial storm coming. One that is going to be larger and more destructive than all the others that came before.

Just as the hurricanes in the Atlantic basin were fueled by ocean temperatures a full 1.5 degrees warmer than average, the coming financial storm will be fueled by the most excessive pool of hot money created in all of history.

George Will covers *The Complacent Class* "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Here is one paragraph:

Although America is said to be and many Americans are seething about economic grievances, Tyler Cowen thinks a bigger problem is complacency. In his latest book, The Complacent Class: The Self-Defeating Quest for the American Dream, Cowen, professor of almost everything (economics, law, literature) at George Mason University and co-author of the Marginal Revolution blog, argues that the complacent class, although a minority, is skillful at entrenching itself in ways detrimental to the majority.

The Biggest Deadline For Our Campaign So Far Is In 7 Days, And I Am Praying For A $25,000 Miracle "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

I really need your help.  As most of you already know, I am running for Congress in Idahos first congressional district, and because there is no incumbent the race is totally wide open.  I announced that I was running on July 4th, and so September 30th is my very first FEC quarterly reporting deadline.  All over the country, prominent Republican donors and key conservative organizations will be judging the strength of my campaign based on how much money I raise this quarter.  If I dont raise enough, I risk losing national support that I otherwise could have received.  And even though hundreds of people have been donating from all over the country, we are lagging behind where we need to be, and so I am praying for a $25,000 miracle over the next seven days.  If you would like to help this miracle become a reality, you can contribute at this link

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Over the next week, I will be meeting with some of the most influential conservatives in the entire state of Idaho.  I will post new articles when I can, but because my schedule is going to be absolutely packed this week it will be tough to get something new posted every day.

As I travel around the state and meet with top conservatives, there are certain points that virtually everyone agrees upon

-I am the most conservative candidate in this race by a wide margin.

-I have the best message of any of the candidates, and it isnt even close.

-My team is extremely effective at getting my message to the voters.

-If we can get that message out to every voter in this district the way that we need to, we will win this election.

-The major thing that could keep us from winning the election is a lack of resources.

Because we have the best message, we dont have to raise more money than the other guys.

Solve for the Italian-Libyan equilibrium "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Failing to stem the tide of refugees arriving Europe, Italy and the rest of the European Union have agreed to pay Libyas Government of National Accord (GNA), the UN-backed interim government that is struggling hold control of the country, to keep them from arriving in Italy and instead put them into detention camps in Libya.

The accord signed Feb. 3, provides for Italy to pay 220 million ($236 million) to the Libyan coastal guard and provide training to help them catch the vesselsprimarily rubber dinghies. The Libyan coast guard will be charged with sending the boats back to Libya and putting people into camps. The political instability of Libya is such that there would be little guarantee of the conditions in which the migrants would be kept, according to Arjan Hehenkamp, general director of Mdicins Sans Frontires (MSF).

Here is one story.  In Libya they understand the Coase theorem:

A security source in Libya spoke to Associated Press late last month saying: Yesterdays traffickers are todays anti-trafficking force.

I believe the size of the Coasean payments will rise.  If Libya is paid to halt migrants, and finds this a satisfactory or indeed even profitable arrangement, they also will act toboost the supply of potential migrants.  Producing potential migrants will at some point become one of their more significant economic sectors.  And the larger the number of bottled up would-be migrants, the more Italy and/or the EU will pay to stop them.

Yet what is Italy otherwise to do?  I find it striking how underreported this story has been.

Fame and Longing "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Love and Authenticity

Nazreen asked me on Twitter: dont you want to be more famous? Isnt that everyones goal? Funnily, her question reminded me of an essay Ive been meaning to write.

You know, Ive had it, in spades. More fame than I ever wanted, needed, or should have hadbut I didnt know that yet. Let me tell you the story.

One day, a few years back, I went on my daily rounds, which means standing in a square, sipping coffee, and smoking half a pack of cigarettes (sorry, but its glorious), which is what writing really is. So there I was, walking down 26th street, and someone stopped me. Umair! Im a big fan of yours!. I thanked them kindly. I went to the post office, to mail something. And there was a young guy there, who looked at me and said, Hey! I love your writing, man! I cant believe Im meeting you!.

And I remember thinking at precisely that moment. Whoa. Im famous. Theres fame and then theres fame. Movie-star-cant-leave-the-house-fame, and then this littler sort of fame. For me, an intellectual, a minority, an author, a nobody, basically, thats about as famous as you can get. Especially considering I was just thirty five or so.

Id just fallen in love in those days. For the first time. Just like theres fame and theres fame, theres love and then theres love. This was true love. Not infatuation, sex, desire, appreciation. But heart-bursting and life-giving love, that tore me wide open. And I remember thinking that night, just cozily relaxing in my little apartment with my girlfriend, what happened today was all wrong. It doesnt feel right. This does.

But I couldnt quite say what the disconnect was. The scene repeated itself. The rounds, the walk, the sightings, the wrongness. And the more wrong I felt, the less I could say why. So I went to a therapist. He said that I had Imposter Syndrome. I laughed. I went to another therapist. He said I was depressed. I said: what else is new. I asked my parents. They said: you havent accomplished enough in life yet. I frowned.

I hadnt learned then that the answer is always in the question. The question. What is fame, anyways? I could say that fame is a battle, a lie, a thief that corrodes you from the inside, stealing away all your empathy and kindness and grace. And all thats true (just look around). But I think that theres a truer price. Fame is a calculation. And that is why to anyone who knows deep inside that their heartbreak contains their possibility, fame probably feels wrong.

Were all born with a longing. In each and every one of us, questions surge. Why am I here? Whats the point of all this? Where was I born, and where will I go? What will my...

Intellectual fallout from the likely failure of Graham-Cassidy "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

1. The Democrats were debating single payer while this bill, which they dread, nearly passed (and still has some chance of passing).  This was not a random mistake, rather it reflects a more general tendency of the Democratic Party to focus on the wrong kind of expressive values, in a manner which does not seem remediable.  We need to re-model what they are, and build this kind of un-educability into the new model.

2. One lesson of Graham-Cassidy failure is that American health care, at the state level, is a race to the bottom not to the top.  Recall that the Canadian health care system also leaves key decisions to the provinces + block grants, but American Progressives love the results.  Most observers know the American states would not copy the Canadian provinces in their policies, and it is not only because fiscal equalization is weaker to the south.  The reality is that spending much more on health care would not make most American states much more desirable places for most people to live in.  If it did, Graham-Cassidy would be a better idea than in fact it is and a race to the top would ensue.  Better health care would brighten up states all around, attract more population, and increase the revenue going into governors coffers.

Democrats and Republicans both find this inadequacy of state-level outcomes difficult to accept, though for opposing reasons.  Democrats hate having to recognize that all the extra health care spending might be mainly redistribution rather than remedying a market failure or providing a broad-based social public good.  Republicans hate to see that giving states control over health care policy, and allowing them to revise Obamacare, wont improve those states and probably would make most of them worse.

Of course my points #1 and #2 relate.  I agree Graham-Cassidy is a bad idea, but every time I hear the critics say it is heartless, or would take away peoples health insurance, or kill people, what I really hear is If we let everyone vote again on Obamacare, with a real time balanced budget constraint, they wouldnt vote for nearly as much health care next time around.

Which is why you should not be obsessing over single-payer systems.

Across the board, pondering Graham-Cassidy, including its failure, should make you more pessimistic about economic and social processes.

For Labour, its all about what you say "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Labour members heading to Brighton this weekend will be a historical anomaly. Because they will be perky. That isnt the word youd normally associate with Labour party members on the eve of party conference for the last decade. Depressed, occasionally. Determined, often. But perky? No.

And fair enough. Just 15 weeks ago they learnt that the British public had revived their partys chance of forming a government rather than relegating them to the fringes of politics, with a 40% vote share, only achieved on two other occasions since 1970. Far from massive losses the party saw a net gain of 30 seats. They might have been near a million votes off winning the election. But when everyone tells you your team is certain to be relegated and then they squeeze into a Europa League spot, perky is the least you feel justified in being.

In hindsight maybe the surprise shouldnt have been quite so surprising. Only once since 1918 has a party that has been in government for as long as the Conservatives have since 2010 not lost seats in an election. Theresa May might have taken some comfort from the fact that Harold Macmillan, then like her a (reasonably) new PM, had bucked the seat losing trend back in 1959. But that was the era of youve never had it so good. Ten years on from the financial crisis, amidst the weakest decade for wage growth since the Napoleonic wars, and with years of spending cuts both behind and ahead of us, it would take a brave politician to repeat that phrase today.

Indeed, on the narrow following of both the political and economic cycles, the normal result should have been a Labour victory on 8 June. Obviously the economic legacy of the crash, challenging internal party politics and Brexit complicated the situation. But perky activists heading to Brighton should still pause to consider how a government with all the headwinds above returned to office.

Rightly much of the election post-mortem has focused on the starkest age divide in British political history, as the young voted overwhelmingly for Labour while the over 65s backed the Conservatives by more than two to one. Even his most ardent critics acknowledge that Jeremy Corbyn has done a good thing for politics by playing a part in encouraging the young to vote. This new generational divide has left the Conservatives understandably panicked that they have lost support of voters who are, for reasons of longevity, more likely to be voting in the years ahead.

Debates about how this has happened (clues include rapidly falling home ownership rates amongst the young, who have also suffered by far the deepest pay squeeze and biggest student debt) and what they can do about it rightly concern the Conservatives so much theyve taken to discussing it on haystacks at festivals.

But then there is the issue of class. Some have concluded from the fact...

The limits of refrigerator privacy? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

It seems we never quite reach them:

Walmart is testing a service that delivers groceries straight to your fridge when youre not home.

On Friday, the retail giant announced a partnership with August Home, a smart-lock startup, that would allow a delivery person to enter customers orders and put groceries away in their refrigerators

Delivery drivers will have a one-time passcode that allows them to unlock the August smart lock if customers do not answer the door when the delivery team arrives to drop off groceries. They will then drop off packages in the foyer, unload groceries in the fridge, and leave with the door locking behind them.

Customers get a notification when the driver rings the doorbell. August home-security cameras allow them to watch the entire process from the app if they wish.

Here is the story, via Peter Metrinko.

Where does Brexit stand today? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Here is the Financial Times:

Theresa May has been applauded by Brussels for her constructive spirit after she set out plans to keep Britain in the EU in all but name until 2021, five years after the country voted to leave the bloc.

In a conciliatory speech in Florence, Mrs May also said Britain would pay 20bn into the EU budget after Brexit and signalled the contribution was only a downpayment on what could be a considerably larger exit bill.

Although Britain will formally leave the EU in March 2019, under Mrs Mays model it would still be covered by all EU rules, European court judgments, the free movement of EU workers and budgetary contributions to Brussels until the transition ends. . . .

The speech delighted business leaders who believe Mrs Mays plan for a transition period of around two years after Brexit in March 2019 will avoid a cliff-edge and was welcomed by Michel Barnier, the EUs chief negotiator.

Here are some comments:

1.  By now it should be clear why I distinguished between the economic effects of Brexit uncertainty and the economic effects of Brexit itself.  We now know that Brexit uncertainty had no noticeable impact on UK real GDP growth (which was about the same in the 12 months after Brexit as during the 12 months before.)  I still believe that Brexit itself will lead to somewhat slower growth, as do the currency markets.  But the delay in Brexit has allowed a partially recovery in the pound, which has bounced back to $1.35, after dropping from $1.46 to $1.23 after the vote (and subsequent Brexit means Brexit rhetoric.)

2.  I think its very unlikely that the UK will (de facto) leave the EU in March 2021 (if ever).  May is rumored to have favored an even longer delay, but worried about a leadership challenge from Boris Johnson.  Notice she said around two years, which could mean three years.  Britain really doesnt want to leave; thats obvious.

3.  And by 2021 or 2022, who knows what the political si...

Is there a Rawlsian argument for redistribution as a form of social insurance? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Here is one presentation of such an argument, but keep in mind these points:

1. The strongest argument for redistribution is when redistribution boosts economic growth and benefits all or most of society.  That is by no means always the case, but it is sometimes true and of course it is not a Rawlsian argument.

2. The second strongest argument for redistribution is that it is sometimes intrinsically better if a poor, needy person has a resource, as opposed to a wealthier person having that same resource.  That is in fact what most people think, no matter what argument they give you.

3. As well see, the Rawlsian argument is parasitic upon #2, so why not use #2 directly?  Admittedly, #2 is a difficult conclusion to establish in a scientific manner, but the Rawlsian gloss, upon examination, makes it weaker not stronger.  It does however make the argument look a) more academic, and b) apparently more in line with neoclassical economic modes of thinking.

4. Most political philosophers, or indeed most philosophers, are not Rawlsians, even if they have been influenced by Rawls, which is frequently the case.  So why should you, if youre an economist, be a Rawlsian?  Is it that you read Rawls and the critics, sided with Rawls, and then sat down to derive its implications?  Or did you find it a convenient rationalization for something you already believed or wanted to believe?

4b. Rawls is almost always invoked selectively, rarely being applied across national borders or across the generations, cases where it yields screwy results.  Rawls himself hesitated to approve of economic growth, because it does not maximize the well-being of the original worst off generation, which of course has to do some saving.  He had sympathies with the idea of Mills stationary state.  Its fine to reject those conclusions, as indeed you should, but again maybe youre not really a Rawlsian.  You are a selective Rawlsian, if that.

4c. Most people rightly I might add believe just as much in redistribution or maybe more when the position of the unfortunates is certain in advance. How many times have you heard social immobility cited as a problem that requires redistribution for its solution?  That argument is fine on its own terms, but again were back to #2.  The funny thing about econo-Rawlsians is that they want to cite the uncertainty of the wealth distribution as a reason for redistribution, and then they wish to turn around and cite the certainty of the wealth distribution as yet another reason for redistribution!

Yes, maybe you can apply a Rawlsian transform to those situations...

Elvis's Own Personal Drug War "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By: Chris Calton
Nixon-Elvis-ap.jpg

When Elvis Presley died in 1977 from drug abuse, he was an official, badge-carrying federal agent for the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, an honorary appointment granted by President Richard Nixon.

To say that Elvis Presley had a respect for law enforcement is to drastically understate his enthusiasm. In another life, he would have liked to have been a police officer, and he was obsessed with collecting police badges and uniforms. When he would perform shows around the country, he always made an effort to obtain a badge from the local police force, sometimes by using his celebrity status and other times by donating money to police functions. In some cases, he would offer a $5,000 donation to a police ball in order to procure a badge. He was also known to give expensive cars to local sheriffs, including Sherriff Bill Morris of Memphis who gratefully deputized Presley after receiving a gift of a Mercedes-Benz.

Elvis's Memphis police badge and ID

His generosity was so lavishly offered to members of the Denver police that it actually brought about suspicions of graft and corruption after the Kings death. Along with Cadillacs and Lincoln luxury cars, he paid for officers to take high-class vacations and gifted them with pricey jewelry. He purchased his own Denver police uniform and was made an honorary captain of the Denver Police Force. He would have been a police officer, Elvis once confided, but God blessed him with a voice.

Elvis posing in his Denver police uniform

Elvis Becomes a Drug Warrior

In 1970, California senator George Murphy promised to get Elvis a meeting with FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD) director John Ingersoll. In both cases, Elvis was hoping that a generous private donation would be enough to buy him a federal badge from each of these departments.

Elvis never did get to meet Hoover, and when called the BNDD, Ingersoll was out of the office. He spoke, instead, to the number-two man of the Bureau, Deputy Director John Finlator. The deputy director was not swayed by Elviss fame or money and informed him that his department could neither accept donations nor issue honorary badges. Elviss offer was spurned.

Undeterred, Elvis penned a hand-written letter to President Nixon. In the letter, Elvis expressed his concerns for the drug culture, the hippie elements, the SDS [Students for a Dem...

Week in Review: September 23, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By: Mises Institute
Week in Review image

Almost a decade later, the Federal Reserve this week announced it will begin reversing quantitative easing. Slowly. Very slowly. The balance sheet currently stands at $4.5 trillion and they will begin allowing $10 billion in assets to roll off their sheets next month. Given the unprecedented nature of QE, even this modest reduction has many market observers on edge. Of course, the fallout from the Fed's actions are still being felt, while the Trump Treasury is making threats that it would have disastrous consequences if acted on.

On Mises Weekends, Jeff is joined by Dr. Mark Thornton to get his take on the Fed's actions and what it all means for stock markets, investors, and the US economy. Can quantitative easing, a roundabout form of monetizing debt, actually work? Can monetary policy make us rich? Or are Fed officials just groping in the dark, putting off a day of reckoning?

And in case you missed them, here are this weeks Mises Wire and FedWatch articles, covering a wide array of topics:

The Supreme Court Failed Us On Vietnam "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By: Jacob G. Hornberger
vietnam.PNG

With last weekss beginning of Ken Burns new documentary about the Vietnam War, the war will be brought back to the front burner for national discussion and debate.

There is one thing that is crystal clear and indisputable about the U.S. intervention into Vietnams civil war: The intervention was illegal under our form of government. Thats because it was waged in violation of the U.S. Constitution, the document that sets forth the powers of U.S. officials, including those in the military and the CIA.

When the federal government was called into existence by the Constitution, its powers were limited to those set forth in the document itself. If a power isnt enumerated, then it cannot lawfully be exercised.

The Constitution does not give the power to initiate war to the president. The Framers and the American people who ratified the Constitution did not want the president or the military making that decision. Thats why the Constitution delegates the power to declare war to Congress, the elected representatives of the American people.

Thus, if the president initiates war against another nation without a congressional declaration of war, he is acting unlawfully under our form of government.

The interesting question is: Why didnt the U.S. Supreme Court and the federal judiciary declare the U.S. war on North Vietnam to be unconstitutional?

Ever since the Supreme Courts decision in Marbury vs. Madison in 1803, the Court has assumed the authority and responsibility to declare acts of the president or laws enacted by Congress to be unconstitutional. And ever since Marbury, there have been many cases in which the federal courts have declared presidential actions or congressional laws unconstitutional.

Yet, when it came to U.S intervention into the Vietnam War, the federal judiciary declined to act. Why?

The issue was certainly clear-cut. The Constitution required a congressional declaration of war against North Vietnam. There was no congressional declaration of war against North Vietnam. Therefore, by initiating a war against North Vietnam, the president, the Pentagon, and the CIA were acting illegally under our form of constitutional government.

The federal judiciary has long rationalized its deference to the Pentagon and the CIA in terms of rhetoric like respect for the coordinate branches of the government or by suggesting that federal judges lack foreign-policy expertise or by simply asserting that a petitioners lacks standing to bring a legal action to dec...

VICTORY IS OURS: Gold & Silver REFUSE to Drop a Handle "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

First this (queue Rocky theme song):

 

 

Gold aint having $1200 and silver says get that $16 outta here!

Both precious metals hold, and close on the day both higher and above the key whole numbers.

Still, it was pretty disgusting to watch:

 

 

In the above chart, it is easy to see that more and more selling volume is needed to keep the silver price suppressed. So far, 2017 has been nothing more than a monkey-hammering on the weekly, but looking at the volume of the last few weeks, compared to the last price attack, and compared to the attack before that, it looks like the volume is ready to pick up even more from here, but the more paper that gets thrown at silver, the more they can only get sideways choppy price action.

Heres what the volume looked like as they knocked exactly $1.00 off the price from the high to the low. The cartel was smashing the juice out of the hamburger all week long:
