The sad news comes via Dictators Forever, Forever Dictators, a blog devoted to the legendary New York City band Teeter joined in 1976. The timekeeper played on two albums, Manifest Destiny (1977) and Bloodbrothers (1979), and occasionally took part in reunion shows.

There's a major trader at JP Morgan who's literally juggling financial dynamite! Just like the big casino gambler that he actually is, his nickname is "The London Whale." He's juggling billions in derivatives positions and when those explosive units come crashing down to earth, the monetary system might very well crash with it. Why would he be allowed to act so recklessly? While we know there are many high-powered listeners to...

  • Triple Lutz Report--Marc Faber Says It May Be Time To Buy Real Estate--10.Apr.2012

    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 04/10/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    www.FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents: Dr. Marc Faber (Gloom Boom and Doom Report) thinks real estate in extremely depressed markets may be a good buy. He may be right, but he could also be wrong, and the markets could decline further. Yes markets in Florida, Phoenix and Vegas have declined by as much as 75% since the economic collapse began in 2007. However, that doesn’t mean these markets can’t decline even further. If you see a house in a boarded up subdivision, and it’s selling for next to nothing, that doesn’t make it a good buy. We propose several means of valuing a...
  • NBC's "He Looks Black" - Now You See It, Now You Don't (NBC Removing Evidence From its Site)

    Just One Minute ^ | April10, 2012 | Tom MacGuire
    NBC is busy taking down the evidence of its repeated usage of its bogus edit of the George Zimmerman 911 call. This follows the firing of a producer for the use of the same bad edit on the March 27 Today Show. Left unanswered - what about the March 22 use on the Today Show? [LATE ADD: a third usage of "He looks black" has been found and edited out of existence (but not Google Cache!) at NBC 6 Miami, as described below. When will the Elite Media sniff a cover-up?] Twelve days ago Dan Riehl found this at MSNBC:...

    "Ranting" Andy Hoffman of Miles Franklin joined us again for his weekly rant. He was particularly peeved today because his internet service went down, compliments of a wonderful oligarchic cable company that wants to control his existence. Then we got down to the end of theGreat Indian Gold Strike of 2012. The gold merchants of India, which is by the way the largest gold consuming nation on Earth, won their battle against the government's attempt to impose an excise tax on gold imports. The strike lasted three weeks, during which time gold sellers were heard to proclaim, "No Gold for...

    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 04/09/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents: Billy Murphy has been fighting the good battle for 13 years. His organization www.Gata.org has been the David fighting the Goliath of the Fed, the Bullion Banks, the US Government and many other foreign interests as well. Bill categorically states there hasn't been a free market in gold and silver for decades, and he's got the evidence to back it up. There are thousands of documents proving Fed manipulation and witnesses calling major price moves days before the actual event occurs. The manipulation and price rigging has only gotten worse since the beginning of 2012. First there was...
  • Katie Couric Grills Obama on his Recent Statements about Supreme Court (Satire)

    Vanity | 4/8/2012 | self
    Couric: Let's take a look at what you said recently regarding the upcoming Supreme Court decision on your health care legislation: “I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.” You claim it would be "unprecedented" if the justices overturn this law. But isn't that the proper role of the courts, and hasn't it happened many times before? Obama: Clearly, I was talking about important laws like this, which were enacted during my administation. So since...

    Been watching the Trayvon threads closely, and following the news. It is mere curiosity on my part, watching how both sides set the narrative, or at least attempt to. Some guy kills another in Florida - how does that impact me? Yet it did. I am not going to even try to minimize the total horror George Zimmerman is going through right now. Hunted and vilified for protecting his life and his community and with a totally illegal bounty on his head. Innocent people forced to flee their homes thanks to one idiot who couldn't be bothered to check the...
  • Chris Duane Explains Why Silver Confiscation Won't Happen--06.Apr.2012

    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 04/07/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents: Chris Duane has just finished a new video about silver confiscation and why it's not going to happen. Many people are concerned about the ever-expanding government. We fear that eventually our silver will be confiscated, just like gold was in the 1930's. This is a highly unlikely occurrence, as there are too many large, attractive confiscation candidates, such as: COMEX, GLD, SLV and the other major dealers. Going house-to-house to seize physical holdings of precious metals is just not practical and could lead to violent backlashes. Chris and I also discussed why Homeland Security needs 450 million rounds...

    FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents: The extent of the governmental corruption in the United States today is beyond comprehension. With that corruption comes the continuing erosion of individual rights and the escalating movement towards totalitarianism. Here's another example of what we are facing as a nation. A bill, which was passed by overwhelmingly majority in the US Senate, provides for revocation of a citizen's passport in the event of the delinquency of $50,000 or more on federal income taxes. Fortunately, passage in the House is questionable for now, but your government is clearly capable of anything. We see the same types of outrageous...

    FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents: The lastest jobs number was abysmal. GM's cars are rotting in the dealer lots, and there's just too much negative news to fullly absorb. The debt in Spain falls mainly at the Fed, and there's no possibility of saving the system because it died a long time ago. There's no way to bring the Zombie Banks back to life. So start saving your silver and gold because there's going to be a major upswing shortly. Forget the short term swings, look back over the past 10 years and think where you'd be now, if only you invested in...

    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 04/06/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents: Bix Weir of www.RoadtoRoota.com fame believes there's an extreme derivatives induced meltdown taking place in Europe as we speak. Of course there's the story of a rogue trader from JP Morgan who's taken control of the world CDS market and is bending it to his will: obviously, with little or no supervision from his bosses. How can such things happen in today's financial world, especially after the passage of Dodd-Frank, which was supposed to solve all these problems? The head of commodities trading at JP Morgan, also accused by some of being the antichrist of precious metals, Blyteh...
  • Ellen Brown-The Key to Solving the Debt Problem–06.Apr.2012

    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 04/06/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents: Ellen Brown has been studying the government debt problem for years and believes she has a solution. Rather than governments borrowing money from banks and outsiders, they should be borrowing directly from central banks. Thus any interest owed would be paid back to the government, eliminating a large portion of the resulting debt burden. Combine this with borrowing only for projects that will generate sufficient revenues to self-liquidate the loans and you have a prescription for responsible government finance. Canada did this successfully until the 1970's, when the Bank for International Settlements stepped in and helped end the...

    Nashville City Paper ^ | April 4, 2012 | Pierce Greenberg
    Over the course of three months, 25-year-old Olbin Euceda committed crimes involving 26 victims in the Antioch area during the fall of 2011, according to multiple Davidson County grand jury indictments handed down last week. Detectives and SWAT team officers from the Metro Nashville Police Department arrested Euceda in December after allegedly raping an 11-year-old girl and robbing her family. He was caught just before boarding a bus to Mexico. The grand jury indictments handed down last week charge Euceda with 41 separate counts, outlining to some extent the crimes with which he and his alleged accomplice, Rony Sorta, are...

    Roseanne Barr Becomes Second Leftist Celebrity to Threaten George Zimmerman's Parents By Matthew Sheffield | March 29, 2012 | 16:54 Formerly relevant comedian Roseanne Barr has become the second leftist entertainment celebrity to threaten the family of George Zimmerman, the accused shooter in the death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin by posting the home address of his parents on Twitter. While she quickly deleted her tweet after an onslaught of criticism by her 110,000+ followers, Barr continued to defend her action, stating that it "was good to let ppl know that no one can hide anymore." She also threatened to...

While many bemoan manipulation and market rigging, such anomalies to people like Ron are money in the bank. He doesn't believe the Fed has found Austrian Economic religion and doesn't believe they can afford to. Rather, the shift away from the dollar as the world's reserve...
