Obama And The Media Are Stirring The Pot In Ferguson, But Real Leaders Are Trying To Bring Us Together

By Michael Snyder

Barack Obama says that the notion that our laws are not being enforced uniformly is “rooted in reality” and that the rioting in Ferguson will “make for good TV”.  Time Magazine says that the Ferguson riots “are part of the American experience” and “are a necessary part of the evolution of society”.  Statements such as these stir the pot in Ferguson and provide fuel for the violent protests […]

California Housing Market Cracks in Two, Top End Goes Crazy

Wolf Richter,

That the housing market is seriously twisted is apparent by the mortgage conundrum: despite historically low mortgage rates of around 4% for a 30-year fixed rate mortgage, mortgage originations averaged only $357 billion per quarter so far this year, according to the New York Fed. Unless a miracle intervenes in the fourth quarter, 2014 will be the worst year since 2000.

But home prices have soared 74% since […]

Gold “Price” Spikes to $1,467.50/oz on Computer Glitch

by GoldCore

Gold spiked higher in many price feeds overnight and was $270 higher or more than 22% higher to $1,467.50/oz at one stage in what appears to have been some form of computer glitch.

There was speculation that the price spike was due to a series of charting errors or misprints, a bad price feed or a computer glitch. Another example of how technology is a great enabler but can also […]

The Guardian: Swiss Referendum Could Spark Gold Rush

Today I was interviewed by the Guardian on the Swiss gold referendum. Again, I was fortunate to share my opinion with a wide audience.

The manipulators have a plan for gold. It won’t work

With the four-hour, three-cocktail Christmas lunch season ahead of us, there is very little likelihood of anything dramatic taking place on the stock markets in what’s left of 2014.

Ferguson Protesters Overturn Barricades, Swarm Courthouse… Block Traffic On Interstate… Obama Lectures America About Justified Anger

Ferguson protesters overturn barricades, swarm courthouse…

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Hundreds of protesters angry about the Ferguson grand jury decision have disrupted traffic for several hours in downtown St. Louis by blocking major intersections, an interstate highway and a Mississippi River bridge connecting the city to Illinois.

Riot police arrested several demonstrators Tuesday afternoon who sat down in the middle of Interstate 44 near the Edward Jones Dome. They used […]

Bill Holter- Why Are There All These Repatriations All Of A Sudden? The Reason Being Is Central Banks Are Not Trusting Other Central Banks. It’s All About Trust, And Gold Is Trust. . . . It’s Going To Be The Last Man Standing.

We have a Swiss referendum coming on Sunday. They want to repatriate their gold. This is about central banks not trusting central banks. Interesting enough, the leading party in the polls in France is talking about repatriating French gold. Why are […]

PAPER: Obamacare gives firms $3k incentive to hire illegals over native-born workers

Under the president’s new amnesty, businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk of Obamacare.

President Obama’s temporary amnesty, which lasts three years, declares up to 5 million illegal immigrants to be lawfully in the country and eligible for work permits, but it still deems them ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on Obamacare’s health exchanges.

Growth in corporate profits slows sharply in third quarter

Prosperity Amidst The Ruins: The Fundamental Problem Facing The Global Economy Is Not Slow Economic Growth But Political Inequality.

by Charles Hugh-Smith

The fundamental problem facing the global economy is not slow economic growth but political inequality.

It’s striking: as economies stagnate, the top tier is living even larger while the low-income masses sink further into marginalized poverty. I call this widening divide between the vested interests/wealthy and the rest of society prosperity amidst the ruins.

How can the top slice prosper while the rest of the populace suffers from higher taxes, […]

Did They Want More Violence In Ferguson? 10 ‘Coincidences’ Too Glaring To Ignore

Was it a conspiracy or was it incompetence?  Those appear to be the only two alternatives that we are left with after the horrific violence that we witnessed in Ferguson on Monday night.  The first round of Ferguson rioting back in August took everyone by surprise, but this time authorities had more than three months to prepare.  They had the ability to control precisely when the grand jury […]

Obama’s pimping out 30 million email addresses

During his two successful presidential campaigns, President Obama amassed an email list containing about 30 million addresses. Some of the top officials working on his campaign have created an offshoot organization, which is now renting that email list for millions of dollars. The worst part is that, since they are a separate organization from the President, they can now use that email address to lobby for any cause they want. […]

Markets rise as global economic outlook worsens

Nothing Has Changed–and That’s The Problem. Playing Monetary Games Has Done Nothing To Eliminate Moral Hazard.

Playing monetary games has done nothing to eliminate moral hazard.

If we step back and look at the past six years since the global financial meltdown of 2008, we see that in terms of financial and political power, nothing has changed–and that’s the problem. If nothing has changed structurally, then none of the problems that caused the meltdown have truly been addressed.

All that’s changed is the vast expansion of […]

The Federal Reserve Is At The Heart Of The Debt Enslavement System That Dominates Our Lives
