James Turk: Money Bubble About to Pop ~ Greg Hunter


Gold expert James Turk thinks the biggest bubble of all is long past its expiration date. Turk thinks this bubble will end like all bubbles. Turk predicts, “This money bubble is going to pop. It has to because there is just too much debt in the world. That debt has to be reconciled and, ultimately, when you are reconciling debt, it gets back to the point about collateral on the balance sheets. There is just not enough good collateral to support all of this paper money circulating out there.”

Turk also says there is way too many paper promises for the actual physical gold that can be delivered. So, in the future, Turk says, “I see a lot of these promises to deliver gold being broken and, ultimately, the only way you are going to see this being resolved is with a much higher gold price.” How high? Turk estimates, “You’ve got to be looking back to the all-time highs of $1,900 or $2,000 per ounce. We are eventually going to take those out. It’s just a question of when we do it. It’s obvious it is going to happen because gold has been money for 5,000 years and, ultimately, people will come back to gold when they realize that all these promises of bankers and central bankers really cannot be fulfilled. So, it is just a question of when that reconciliation comes. In March of 1968, the dam broke and the gold price was released and the gold price climbed for another 12 years. When the gold price finally gets released this time around, it’s going to climb for many, many more years. It’s hard to say how high it can go, but relative to the amount of paper that’s out there . . . a price several times higher than what we have today seems very, very reasonable in the long run.”

Delta Air Lines Bans Big Game Hunting Trophies


As world outrage over Cecil the Lion’s death grows, one of the largest U.S. airlines tells hunters to find another way to bring home the bodies of lions, tigers, and other wildlife.

Aug 3, 2015
Taylor Hill is an associate editor at TakePart covering environment and wildlife.

 

Delta, the only United States airline that offers direct flights to South Africa, just put up a big roadblock for American hunters hoping to bring home animal trophies.

In a statement sent to TakePart on Monday, Delta said it has banned the transport of lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo parts on its flights worldwide.

“Prior to this ban, Delta’s strict acceptance policy called for absolute compliance with all government regulations regarding protected species,” the airline stated. “Delta will also review acceptance policies of other hunting trophies with appropriate government agencies and other organizations supporting legal shipments.”

The news follows the recent global outcry over the death of Zimbabwe’s Cecil the Lion at the hands of American dentist Walter Palmer. The allegedly illegal hunt of the beloved 13-year-old lion sparked petitions that have garnered more than 1 million signatures, calling for justice for Cecil and stricter protections of Africa’s endangered lions.

“There’s no doubt the news of Cecil definitely has altered the game plan for Delta,” said Chris Green, director of legislative affairs for the Animal Legal Defense Fund. “Walter Palmer is from Minneapolis—the third largest hub in the U.S. for Delta. It’s not unthinkable to assume he would have chosen to carry a national treasure of Zimbabwe’s back to the state on a Delta plane.”

In May, Green started a petition calling for Delta to stop transporting trophies of Africa’s big game wildlife. The petition has attracted 394,000 signatures since then.

Green said the signatures were most likely a key to turning Delta’s position as well. “Imagine if Cecil had been carried on a Delta flight after they had received almost 400,000 signatures calling for a ban on trophy transport—that’s a public relations nightmare,” he said.

Asked whether Cecil’s death or the petition had a role in the trophy ban, Delta spokesperson Morgan Durrant said the corporation had no further comment.

Delta’s joins British Airways, Lufthansa, Emirates, Qantas, Qatar, Etihad, Iberia, Singapore, and Brussels Airlines in banning the transport of big game hunting trophies. Americans constitute 60 percent of oversees big game hunters who travel to Africa each year.

“Most people participate in these hunts to have the chance to bring their trophy home and brag about it—this is one more roadblock for them,” Green said.

LIBOR Scapegoat Found Guilty, Sentenced To 14 Years ~ ZeroHedge


Tyler Durden's picture
Update: Hayes has been sentenced to 14 years in jail.*  *  *

Tom Hayes, the former UBS trader standing trial for his role in manipulating LIBOR, was found guilty on eight counts in a London court. The jury, which deliberated for a week, was unanimous in its decision. To wit, from Bloomberg:

Former UBS Group AG and Citigroup Inc. trader Tom Hayes, the first person to stand trial for manipulating Libor, was found guilty of eight counts of conspiracy to rig the benchmark rate.

After a week of deliberations, jurors unanimously found that the 35-year-old conspired with traders at brokers to dishonestly game the London interbank offered rate to benefit his own trading positions.

As Bloomberg notes, Hayes is the first person to stand trial for rigging the benchmark and had contended that he only pleaded guilty in the first place because he had an intense fear of having to serve a lengthy prison sentence in the US.

Hayes was also quick to remind the court that the practice of gaming the submissions to benefit trading books was so ubiquitous as to be enshrined in an official LIBOR rigging guide called “Guide to Publishing Libor Rates” that was distributed to UBS employees. It was also revealed during the trial that Hayes has been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, which means he tends to “only see the world in black and white” – apparently that was supposed to be seen as a mitigating factor.

In the end, it appears that the public needed a head (not literally we hope), and because prosecuting senior executives for such things is absolutely out of the question even when, as we saw last week with Anshu Jain, they were not only supportive of the practice but in fact physically moved desks around to facilitate it, Hayes will be the fall guy.

Or, as we put it in June: “Will Hayes’ quest to diffuse responsibility and bring down more senior executives with him succeed? Hardly.”

We’ll give Tom the last word here and although we’re not entirely sure what this quote means, we’re sure there’s a lesson in it somewhere:

“I’ve always wanted to do my job as perfectly as I could, whether I was cleaning a deep fat fryer or deboning a chicken. They always gave me those jobs because they knew there would be no chicken left on the bone and no fat left in the fryer.”

 


 

 

Why The U.S. Is the Next Greece: Doug Casey On America’s Economic Problems


Tyler Durden's picture

“With these stupid governments printing trillions and trillions of new currency units,” warns investor Doug Casey, “it’s building up to a catastrophe of historic proportions.” In an excellent brief interview with Reason magazine Editor-in-Chief Matt Welch, Casey expounds on the US noting that “as any institution gets larger and older it inevitably becomes corrupt and fails.” What to do? “I wouldn’t keep significant capital in banks,” he exclaimed, “most of the banks in the world are bankrupt. That didn’t stop the “brain dead” Greeks who left their money in banks as all the signs were on the wall, he notes as he addresses whether gold is a good investment in 2015, and offers back-handed bright side: Catastrophes create many opportunities to earn a profit.

 

Monsanto Herbicide in GMO Crops is Carcinogenic: World Health Organization’s Full Report


While the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is not a regulatory agency, their release of a full report on glyphosate’s ability to cause cancer is making waves throughout the world. Glyphosate is the key component in Monsanto’s Roundup.

There are more than 750 products for sale in the USA alone which contain glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide that has been selling since the 1970s.

The agency is comprised of an international review board which determined that glyphosate is indeed carcinogenic. Considering that more than ‘80% of the biotech-created GM crops’ throughout the world were manufactured to be used with this herbicide – it would logically follow that the majority of our food supply is now contaminated by a cancer-causing agent(s).

Following the release of the report, the country of Sri Lanka decided to ban glyphosate completely, and other countries are considering a similar move. Is this information just too much to swallow for more immediate action to follow, or have governments been infiltrated so completely by biotech that the announcement that most of our food is covered in poison will simply be ignored?

The National Pesticide Information Center has done nothing to update its website to inform citizens that the IARC has declared that this herbicide is carcinogenic.

In fact, they instead post the following, word for word:

“Is glyphosate likely to contribute to the development of cancer?

Animal studies have not shown evidence that glyphosate exposure is linked to cancer. Studies with people have also shown little evidence that exposure to glyphosate products is linked with cancer.”

This is an outrageous lie that should be removed immediately – but it won’t be because we are dealing with an industry which regulates itself. Unless people around the world take massive, grass-roots action, instead of waiting on their governments to respond, Monsanto and the biotech industry will continue to sell known cancer-causing agents.

World’s Largest Animal Sacrifice Festival–CANCELLED! ~ TheLipTV


The Gadhimai festival, which is said to be the world’s largest animal sacrifice event has been cancelled after widespread concern over the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of creatures. With animal rights activists protesting the proceedings, which take place at the Gadhimai Temple in Nepal near the Indian border, the festival is on hold as they prepare a potential bloodless alternative to be staged in five years for the next scheduled gathering.

Bix Weir: “You Don’t Own What You THINK You Own” SGTreport.com


Bix Weir from Road to Roota joins us for another wake up call. As hard as it is for some folks to understand, when it come to the stock market, and even your own home, you may not own what you think you own.

According to Zero Hedge, annual ETF trading has eclipsed the entire US GDP. That’s more than $18.2 TRILLION in annual trading volume on ETF assets which total a mere $2.1 TRILLION — further evidence that the “markets” are nothing more than a Ponzi scheme.

But it gets worse. Recounting the massive and blatant criminality of Wall Street, Bix reminds us the on a daily basis BILLIONS of shares are traded back and forth, and millions of those shares go unsettled. The DTCC is essentially a $19 TRILLION private bank which most people have never heard of. The DTCC is charged with settling all daily stock trades within three days, but because of computer and HFT trading the sheer volume of daily trading makes proper settlement virtually impossible. Adding to the confusion is the fact that CEDE & Co. is the secret entity behind the scenes which “owns” all of the shares. So when the system finally implodes you are likely to learn that you don’t own what you think you own.

Washington’s fifth columns inside Russia and China ~ Paul Craig Roberts


© AFP 2015/Philippe Lopez

It took two decades for Russia and China to understand that “pro-democracy” and “human rights” organizations operating within their countries were subversive organizations funded by the US Department of State and a collection of private American foundations organized by Washington. The real purpose of these non-governmental organizations (NGOs) is to advance Washington’s hegemony by destabilizing the two countries capable of resisting US hegemony.

Washington’s Fifth Columns pulled off “color revolutions” in former Russian provinces, such as Georgia, the birthplace of Joseph Stalin and Ukraine, a Russian province for centuries.

When Putin was last elected, Washington was able to use its Fifth Columns to pour thousands of protesters into the streets of Russia claiming that Putin had “stolen the election.” This American propaganda had no effect on Russia, where the citizens back their president by 89%. The other 11% consists almost entirely of Russians who believe Putin is too soft toward the West’s aggression. This minority supports Putin as well. They only want him to be tougher.

The actual percentage of the population that Washington has been able to turn into treasonous agents is only 2-3 percent of the population. These traitors are the “Westerners,” the “Atlantic integrationists,” who are willing for their country to be an American vassal state in exchange for money. Paid to them, of course.

But Washington’s ability to put its Fifth Columns into the streets of Moscow had an effect on insouciant Americans and Europeans. Many Westerners today believe that Putin stole his election and is intent on using his office to rebuild the Soviet Empire and to crush the West. Not that crushing the West would be a difficult thing to do. The West has pretty much already crushed itself.

China, obsessed with becoming rich, has been an easy mark for Washington. The Rockefeller Foundation is supporting pro-American Chinese professors in the universities. US corporations operating in China create superfluous “boards” to which the relatives of the ruling political class are appointed and paid high “directors’ fees.” This compromises the loyalty of the Chinese ruling class.

Hoping to have compromised the Chinese ruling class with money, Washington then launched its Hong Kong NGOs in protests, hoping that the protests would spread into China and that the ruling class, bought with American money, would be slow to see the danger.

Russia and China finally caught on. It is amazing that the governments of the two countries that Washington regards as “threats” were so tolerant of foreign-financed NGOs for so long. The Russian and Chinese toleration of Washington’s Fifth Columns must have greatly encouraged the American neoconservatives, thus pushing the world closer to conflict.

But as they say, all good things come to an end. The Saker reports that China finally has acted to protect itself from Washington’s subversion. Russia, also, has acted in her defense, kicking out Washington’s “National Endowment for Democracy“.

We Americans need to be humble, not arrogant. We need to acknowledge that American living standards, except for the favored One Percent, are in long-term decline and have been for two decades. If life on earth is to continue, Americans need to understand that it is not Russia and China, any more than it was Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, Assad, Yemen, Pakistan, and Somalia that are threats to the US. The threat to the US resides entirely in the crazed neoconservative ideology of Washington’s hegemony over the world and over the American people.

This arrogant goal commits the US and its vassal states to nuclear war.

If Americans were to wake up, would they be able to do anything about their out-of-control-government? Are Europeans, having experienced the devastating results of World War I and World War II, capable of understanding that the incredible damage done to Europe in those wars is minuscule compared to the damage from nuclear war?

If the EU were an intelligent and independent government, the EU would absolutely forbid any member country from hosting a US anti-ballistic missile or any other military base anywhere close to Russia’s borders.

The Eastern European lobby groups in Washington want revenge on the Soviet Union, an entity that is no longer with us. The hatred transmits to Russia. Russia has done nothing except to have failed to read the Wolfowitz Doctrine and to realize that Washington intends to rule the world, which requires prevailing over Russia and China.

Hysterics! Adult with chicken pox prompted lockdown at Danville, Kentucky hospital


© WKYT

Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center in Danville says a patient who tested positive for two strains of adult chicken pox is what prompted a lockdown at the facility Saturday evening.

In a news release, the medical center says it was determined that isolation of the patient was appropriate. Because of the lockdown, other patients and visitors were contained until additional testing could be completed.

To assure that there was no risk to the community, the medical center says it worked closely with local and state health officials and the Center for Disease Control.

CDC Spokeswoman Bernadette Burden confirmed to WKYT the center received a call from the Kentucky State Health Department about the patient on Saturday.

The hospital started releasing patients and staff who did not have direct contact with the patient, out of the emergency room around 7 p.m. Saturday.

Incoming patients were diverted to area hospitals.

Cecil the Lion killer Walter Palmer FINALLY contacts authorities after days of silence


THE American dentist who killed the beloved Zimbabwean lion ‘Cecil’ has finally contacted authorities in the US, it has been confirmed.

Cecil the lion with brother Jericho before he was killed by Walter Palmer

Walter Palmer, who sparked international outrage when he shot dead the lion while on a hunting trip in Africa, “voluntarily” reached out to the US Fish and Wildlife Service Office of Law Enforcement (FWS) after remaining silent for two days.

On Thursday, the FWS said it had launched an investigation into the hunting trip, although Mr Palmer has not been charged with a crime and claims he trusted local guides to obtain necessary permits.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Director Dan Ashe said that efforts to contact Palmer had previously been unsuccessful and that the agency had urged him on Twitter to get in touch.

Now the FWS confirmed a representative for the dentist has contacted the service on his behalf.

“We were voluntarily contacted by a rep of Dr. (Walter) Palmer,” said a tweet from the agency.

“We appreciate the cooperation, investigation is ongoing.”

Officials in Zimbabwe are appealing for the 55-year-old’s extradition to the country, where he could face a fine of £13,000 and up to a decade behind bars.Cecil’s young cubs are now being looked after by his brother Jericho as fears grow they could fall victim to an aggressive rival male lion.Wildlife experts believe a rival would want Cecil’s offspring dead so that the next lion in the hierarchy could father his own cubs with the females in the pride.

ENTERPRISE NEWS AND PICTURES

Palmer paid about $50,000 (£32,000) to go on the hunt

It comes as concerns grow over the safety of Cecil’s cubs, who are under threat from rivalmales now their father is dead.Researchers with Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Unit say that so far they have seen Cecil’s brother protecting the young.David Macdonald, a member of the British team, said: “The natural law in lion society is that when a male dies and his weakened coalition is usurped, the new incoming males kill their predecessors’ cubs.

“This may not happen because Cecil’s brother is still holding the fort.”

Separately, it has emerged the disgraced hunter boasted to a barmaid that he had killed the “world’s biggest lion”.In a sickening twist, Mr Palmer allegedly used photos of the slain animal in a bar in his home state of Minnesota to impress the waiting staff.The woman, who referred to herself as Danielle, said he claimed he had broken records by killing the creature when he visited Doolittle’s Woodfire Grill in Alexandria last month.

Big game hunter Mr Palmer has killed dozens of animals

Mr Palmer’s wife, Tonette, has reportedly held as many as SEVEN licences allowing her to fish in Florida and hunt in Alaska.It has also been reported that the dentist’s office at his surgery in Bloomington, Minnesota, has a display of stuffed heads of dead animals.A friend told MailOnline: “He had animal heads in his personal office and animal print flooring.”

As Zimbabwe continues its appeal for the US dentist’s extradition, the White House said it willreview a petition to send Mr Palmer back to Africa to face charges.However, the US has not extradited anyone to the Republic of Zimbabwe since the extradition treaty took effect in 2000.Two Zimbabweans – a professional hunter and a farm owner – have been arrested in the killing of the lion, but Mr Palmer has so far avoided any charges.

It comes as American rock star Ted Nugent came out in support of the lion killer.

In a radio interview in New York, the singer railed against people who are upset about the killing, saying the outrage is because the lion was given a name.

Furious Americans Demand Extradition Of Cecil-Killing Dentist As Poachers Kill Lion’s Brother ~ ZeroHedge


Tyler Durden's picture

Update: The status of Cecil’s brother is now the subject of a “dispute” between conservationists.

*  *  *

There’s a lot going on in the world, but you wouldn’t know it if you tuned in to the nightly news because according to the mainstream media, the only thing that happened anywhere last week is that a dentist shot a lion.

(Cecil the lion is the one on the right)

That’s right folks, Walter killed Cecil and some folks – scratch that – a lot of folks are unhappy about it.

In fact, hundreds of protesters papered Dr. Palmer’s office with subtle messages like “rot in hell” and “there’s a deep cavity waiting for you.”

http://video-api.wsj.com/api-video/player/iframe.html?guid=09503634-A315-494D-A4BC-3E476D2A47C4

As Reuters reports, Cecil’s untimely demise has the potential to put a dent in a lucrative industry by leaving a bad taste in the mouths of big game hunters, who may now hesitate before participating in this “archaic bloodsport”. Here’s more:

Hunters longing to shoot big game in the African wild may choose a different target after public backlash against a Minnesota dentist who killed Zimbabwe’s Cecil the lion just outside a national wildlife preserve.

African hunts are booked months in advance and pricey affairs, often costing $8,000 to $50,000, with approval needed from U.S. and U.N. agencies to bring back trophies such as the head of a lion to the United States.

“It has left a bad taste in their mouths,” said James Jeffrey, a Houston-based international hunting agent with more than 12 years experience.

“They read all those books and it is people’s dreams to go over there and do it. Some of these guys have worked their whole lives to do this one hunt,” he said.

Eleven African countries issue lion hunting permits. Of them South Africa’s hunting industry is the biggest, worth $675 million, according to the Professional Hunters Association.

Americans make up the bulk of non-African hunters, with 15,000 going to the continent on hunting safaris each year, according to John Jackson, president of Conservation Force, a lobby group that says regulated lion hunting helps protect the animal by giving reserve owners a financial incentive to deter poachers and cultivate stock.

Supporters argue the money generated from hunts bolsters the coffers for conservation in emerging African countries that want to use their limited finances for social programs.

Critics see the hunts as an archaic bloodsport, hurting species such as lions, which an academic study in 2012 said had seen a population fall of nearly 70 percent in the last 50 years.

In response to the killing, Zimbabwe has now put a halt to big game hunts pending an investigation. From AP:

Zimbabwean wildlife authorities say they have suspended the hunting of lions, leopards and elephants in an area favoured by hunters following the killing of a lion popular with tourists.

The National Parks and Wildlife Authority said Saturday that bow and arrow hunts have also been suspended unless they are approved by the authority’s director.

The authority says it is also investigating the killing of another lion in April that may have been illegal. It says it only received the information this week.

And don’t expect the controversy to dissipate any time soon because in what is either a deliberate attempt on the part of an enterprising poacher to capitalize off the incident or else an incredibly ill-timed coincidence, Cecil’s brother Jericho was killed today by hunters. Here’s Sky News:

The brother of Cecil the lion, Jericho, has been shot dead by poachers, the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force has said.

The organisation wrote on Facebook: “It is with huge disgust and sadness that we have just been informed that Jericho, Cecil’s brother, has been killed at 4pm today.

“We are absolutely heart broken.”

It is thought Jericho had been protecting Cecil’s cubs.

And because the story obviously needed to get sadder still, those cubs will now likely die as well.

Via The Daily Mail:

Before his death there had been concerns Jericho would not be able to hold the territory of Cecil’s cubs alone and could be chased away by rival lions. 

Unprotected, the lionesses and cubs are now under threat and [must] move away or be killed.

Last week Mr Rodrigues, told the Daily Mail Online Jericho was keeping the cubs safe from any rival males.

 

(Jericho and Cecil in better times)

As for Palmer, Zimbabwe is looking to have the dentist extradited from the US. “Environment minister Oppah Muchinguri said the dentist should be handed over to Zimbabwean officials to face justice, adding that she understood prosecutors had started the legal process to make that happen,” the Daily Mail notes.

And for anyone who thinks getting Palmer sent back to Zimbabwe will be like pulling teeth (so to speak), the public outcry may end up pressuing The White House into action, because as you can see from the screengrab below, a peitition to have Palmer extradicted has received the necessary number of signatures to warrant a response from The President:

 

 

So in the end, we suppose the only question for Obama will be how to explain the fact that, as we reported on Thursday, the death of Cecil, as well as countless other lions, elephants, rhinos and other animals, is solely as a result of the Zimbabwe government’s corruption. A corruption, which the US government knew all about, and despite the fact that Washington knew US hunters were killing not only elephants but lions, the government’s only real concern was the “serious risks that Americans could be implicated in smuggling and poaching operations.”
