  • Bob Chapman Thinks Things Are So Bad In Europe They Have To Keep Gold Down–18.Apr.2012

    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 04/18/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    www.FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents Bob Chapman joined FSN again for our biweekly check-in. He believes things are going so badly in Europe, and they are getting worse by the moment. This means the elites must do everything in their power to keep the price of gold and silver in the cellar, no matter what it takes. But, it can only go on for so long until the market rights itself, and the manipulators get swept away. The good news is we're getting closer to that point, it's just a matter of time! While it's certainly a good idea to have some cold...

    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 04/18/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    www.FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents James Jaeger is a noted filmaker and documentarian. We interviewed him several months back about his latest work Spoiler, which examined whether Dr. Ron Paul could wind up being elected president. Many people have questioned Dr. Paul's viability as a bona fide candidate, and the main stream media has all but written him off. However, Ron Paul has plugged on and has been experiencing a larger and larger following. Perhaps the ultimate question is whether the perception of economic well-being, which is totally unfounded in reality, will evaporate before the parties' candidates are chosen. From the looks of...

    The Commentator ^ | Raheem Kassam
    I have my own concern about lack of remorse based on a recent Guardian Comment is Free article written by an Iraq War veteran who, as free as he walks, insists that what he did in Fallujah was ‘terrorism’ and writes openly in the Guardian, “I, too, support the right of Muslims to defend themselves against US troops, even if that means they have to kill them.” This shocking statement from Ross Caputi is the kind of dangerous nonsense from someone tied up with the Stop The War Coalition, who recently introduced Noam Chomsky at an event and who seems...

    eXiled editor Yasha Levine still has a host of legal woes hanging over his head from being arrested while covering last November’s LAPD crackdown of OccupyLA. Turns out, those are the least of his worries at the moment. During his two-day stay in Los Angeles Metro Jail, Levine says he contracted a wicked case of scabies. Until a few days ago, I thought my scabies was just a gnarly poison oak rash that I had picked up in the Santa Monica mountains after losing the trail and having to cut through the overgrown backyards of multimillion dollar mansions.

    U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder's decision to speak at an annual convention of the Rev. Al Sharpton's group, in which Trayvon Martin was a key issue, has been widely panned as a political ploy. But maybe, just maybe, it's also evidence that the tamer version of the civil rights leader that we've seen in recent years -- the syndicated radio host, the MSNBC personality, the White House adviser -- is enjoying broader legitimacy these days. "It certainly is a sign of Sharpton's very close relationship with the White House," said Boyce Watkins, a political analyst and Syracuse University economist who...

The next step is for the Michigan Department of Community Health to immediately stop the collection of dues from subsidy payments intended to assist developmentally disabled adults and the diversion of those funds to the Service Employees International Union, said Patrick J. Wright, director of the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation. “Ending this lucrative charade is terrific news for...

    Why are white protestors largely missing in action at the Trayvon Martin rallies? Across America, thousands of protestors are attending rallies for Martin, the 17-year-old black teen who was shot to death on February 26 by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Florida. Even in Toronto, Canada and as far away as London, England, where racial profiling also occurs, demonstrators sported hoodies and demanded justice for Martin in front of the U.S. Embassy. For people of all backgrounds in this country, Trayvon’s death is striking a nerve. Over 2 million people have signed a petition on Change.org demanding...

    This just in from Fox News: “Fair trial for Zimmerman not likely on home turf, say legal experts.” Well, actually one expert quoted in the story makes that precise argument: Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz. The second expert, criminal defense lawyer Mark Bederow, says only that pretrial publicity, including NBC’s doctored tape of Zimmerman’s 911 call, could prejudice potential jurors (wherever they live, presumably). The third expert, defense lawyer Lawrence Lustberg, agreed that finding jurors in the community who have not made up their minds “will require casting a wide net.” But he also said: “The single most important thing...

Sounds like a trade war to us. But this underscores the point that no paper wealth is safe from the clutches of government. It doesn't matter what country's government we are talking about. Eventually, when there's an existential threat to its continued survival, no man's life, liberty, or property is safe. We're truly talking man versus state.

    Project Veritas’ demonstration of how easy it is to vote in someone else’s name failed to inspire concern at the Attorney General’s office. The demonstration involved sending a scruffy, young, white man to 61-year-old Eric Holder’s polling place to see if poll workers would give him Holder’s presidential primary ballot. Despite the young man’s lack of photo ID he was offered the ballot. Holder called the demonstration “a stunt that doesn’t prove anything. No fraudulent vote was cast. The only harm that was done was to people’s confidence in the integrity of the ballot. Maintaining this confidence is the key...

    Academy Award-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson said 17-year-old Trayvon Martin's life was "stolen from him." Martin was shot to death by George Zimmerman on Feb. 26 in a gated community in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman says he shot Martin, who was unarmed, in self-defense. Zimmerman is under arrest. Henson, who has a 17-year-old son herself, said she spoke to Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, over the weekend by phone. "I cannot think about the mother, Sybrina, and what she could be going through," Henson said Monday on "CBS This Morning." "(Trayvon) should be doing exactly what my son is doing right now,...

But even tougher was former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy, who lambasted Angela Corey: “This affidavit is not law, it is agitprop: invoking, for example, the explosive term ‘profiled’ but carefully avoiding any discussion of what it means and failing to note that (a) there is no evidence of racial profiling, and...

    I don’t know why George Zimmerman is trying to raise money for his defense. His lawyer should be filing a multi-billion dollar lawsuit against NBC and its parent company, GE, designed to cripple them and remove the network from the airways. Their actions in the editing of the 911 tape were malicious, designed to start race wars and get George Zimmerman killed. There is no other answer for their lies. They managed to get a “wanted dead or alive” bounty on George Zimmerman’s head by those that believed their purposeful, hate driven, race-baiting, money grubbing lies. They cannot get away...

NBC News apologizes for an "unnamed employee" who edited the 911 call, further criminalizing Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Oops, again. ABC News admits "manipulating" the police arrest video, to blur injuries consistent with Zimmerman's story of being beaten by Martin. Another oops.

The State of Florida Special Prosecutor Angela Corey has charged George Zimmerman for second degree murder against Trayvon Martin, which according to Florida’s law may get Zimmerman life in prison.

    My sources inside Iran tell me that President Obama, seeking to protect the recovering U.S. economy and bolster his chances of being re-elected in November, apparently has entered into an informal agreement with Iran that he believes will defuse the nuclear weapons crisis and keep Israel from attacking the Islamic regime. The agreement calls for the United States to acknowledge that Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons, and for Iran to hand over its highly enriched uranium, which is necessary for nuclear weaponization. Iran, for its part, though engaging Obama, has no intention of abiding by the agreement and is...

They apparently fear that Israel is preparing to attack Iran's nuclear facilities to eliminate President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's oft-repeated threat to annihilate the Jewish State.

    Some notable moments in the recent Trayvon Martin coverage: Jose Baez, who successfully defended Casey Anthony, was analyzing the case against George Zimmerman on Friday morning for CNN. Baez was agreeing with Professor Alan Dershowitz that the prosecutors’ probable-cause affidavit is very thin. Neighborhood Watch volunteer Zimmerman has said he shot Trayvon in self-defense. On MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Dershowitz said of the affidavit: “It’s irresponsible and unethical, and not including the material that favors the defendant, unless it’s not true. But if it’s true, as we now have learned from other information, that the grass stains are in back of Zimmerman’s...

    A new Ipsos/Reuters poll offers what looks to be an unfortunate preview of what lies ahead for the trial of George Zimmerman – particularly as it relates to how the population will potentially react. Perhaps it’s not surprising to see that the attitudes towards Trayvon Martin’s fatal shooting are heavily divided along racial lines, but it’s not any less disheartening. The poll finds that 91 percent of Blacks believe Trayvon was killed unjustly. Yet, only 35 percent of whites feel that way. The online poll also revealed that 59 percent of Hispanics believed Martin was wrongly shot by Zimmerman. On...

A former partner of mine who worked for a large telecom company always used to state, "The situation is hopeless, but never serious." But for Europe and the US it often appears hopeless and extremely serious. But, perhaps the "geniuses" that reside at the Fed and the European Central Bank will find a way out. That hasn't happened yet, and we're extremely skeptical that it will happen now, which means, it's inflate or die. The problem with this approach is that it...

    If Zimmerman had been African American or Trayvon Martin was Hispanic or White, this would have never surfaced as a national story. On the other hand, if Zimmerman had made the news for doing something positive, such as saving a child from a burning building, he would have surely been labeled “Hispanic.” In this case “White” is used to stir the racial pot and create more tension. It is typical of a media that is biased, liberal and irresponsible.

    Through their actions, Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman have become forever entwined in the history of race relations of America. Both had cell phones. One saw what he thought was suspicious activity, (someone walking on others property, between houses, late at night), and called the police. Because he was not in the street, but between houses, Zimmerman apparently continued to follow Martin. He did so against the advice of the 911 operator, supposedly to get an address. Allegedly, at this point, Zimmerman was attacked and beaten, leading to his shooting his attacker. Trayvon Martin the other man in this case...

    George Zimmerman is facing charges of second-degree murder. A jury will decide his guilt or innocence. Here’s hoping the criminal-justice system cools rather than exacerbates the passions the killing of Trayvon Martin has raised. But Attorney General Eric Holder isn’t helping. Wednesday, he appeared before the Reverend Al Sharpton’s National Action Network to praise Sharpton “for your partnership, your friendship, and your tireless efforts to speak out for the voiceless, to stand up for the powerless, and to shine a light on the problems we must solve, and the promises we must fulfill.” This is the same Al Sharpton who...

  • Why did the Trayvon Martin Special Prosecutor dismiss the grand jury?

    It was reported Monday that Special Prosecutor Angela Corey would NOT be giving the Trayvon Martin case to the assembled and waiting Grand Jury in Seminole County, Florida. As it requires a Grand Jury to bring an indictment of first degree murder, the move by the Special Prosecutor takes the possibility of a capital charge against George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin, off the table. Of course, there is a SPECIAL prosecutor because Martin was black and, contrary to long standing tradition, he was NOT shot by another black. Because such a radical departure from accepted procedure immediately elicited...

    www.financialsurvivalnetwork.com presents: Ed Steer, publisher of the Casey Research’s Gold & Silver Daily newsletter joined us again today. He, along with Bill Murphy and many others, has been accusing governments of manipulating the gold and silver markets for over a decade. Recent events have proven this beyond a shadow of a doubt. Ed reflects upon GATA’s successes and failures re: taking on the Fed and the US government. In addition, Ed discusses where gold and silver would be, if the full faith and credit of the world’s governments was not aligned against it. Ed and I also talked about the...
  • Max Yemets--More On Living Through Hyper-Inflation & Buying Gold and Silver--12.Apr.2012

    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 04/12/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    www.financialsurvivalnetwork.com presents: Max Yemets was back on talking more about hyper-inflation and how debts get destroyed. He told the story of how his father took out a loan to purchase a bicycle back in Soviet controlled Ukraine. It was a large loan by their standards; but when hyper-inflation hit, his father was able to repay the loan for virtually nothing. There's something instructive about this scenario, and history could very well repeat itself. Imagine having a large mortgage that you get to pay back in greatly depreciated dollars. Max believes that if you aren't buying metals now, you should be!...

    The Florida Civil Rights Association is demanding, yet again, that state officials yank George Zimmerman's gun permit following his arrest on second degree murder charges. The group is holding a news conference at 11 a.m. outside the state's Division of Licensing in downtown Orlando. Speakers will include local civil rights attorneys and former prosecutors. This is the second time the organization has asked the state to review and revoke Zimmerman's concealed weapons permit, saying he is in a danger to the public. The 28-year-old, who shot an unarmed Miami teenager to death, was charged with second degree murder and is...

    As George Zimmerman sits in a Florida jail cell awaiting his first court appearance on charges of second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, the teen’s father says he has one question for the man who has admitted to shooting his 17-year-old son. “The truth. I just want to hear the truth from him,” Tracy Martin said today on “Good Morning America.” “I would ask him, why Trayvon, and why couldn’t he have just stayed in his vehicle like the dispatcher instructed him to do.” Zimmerman, 28, was charged Wednesday in the Feb. 26 shooting death of Martin, a...

    It was reported today that Arizona Senate President Steve Pierce and Speaker of the Arizona House of Representatives agreed today to just say NO to the 3,000 petitions delivered to the Legislature on April 2, 2012. Pierce and Tobin refused to even allow the Resolution to be formally written which meant it would never even reach the Rules Committee(s) for further advancement. The Resolution if passed would have required SOS Ken Bennett to send a pre-written letter to DNC National Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz requiring substantive and documented replies to questions posed to her regarding Barack Obama's natural born citizenship,...

    The Republican leadership in Congress will not be investigating Obama’s Constitutional eligibility problem according to a leak out of a closed door meeting of top GOP rulers. This is according to a commenter who had just read a post about Obama’s father being born in Kenya. They made this decision in a high stakes closed door meeting and are giving their rank and file members talking points …… high gas prices; getting Americans back to work. Ironic indeed is a new video surfacing of the November 5, 2008, session of the Kenyan Parliament which reveals then Senator Barrack (their spelling)...
  • NJ Judge Admits Obama Hasn't Provided Proof of Birthplace: Rules Obama Born in Hawaii

    In the latest Obama eligibility challenge, an Administrative Law Judge cleared Obama for the New Jersey Democratic Primary today. The two men who objected to Obama’s nominating petition vowed to appeal..... .....But the judge shocked Apuzzo when, at about 7:30 p.m.(4/10/12), he called Apuzzo to tell him that the Obama campaign had prevailed on both points. Said the judge, according to Apuzzo: "As far as I’m concerned, Obama was born in Hawaii." Apuzzo could not explain how Judge Masin could rule that way, after observing in open court that neither Obama nor his surrogates had shown that he was born...
  • My response from Senator Kay Baily-Hutchinson Regarding Obama's Eligibility Issue

    Dear Friend: Thank you for contacting me regarding President Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as President of the United States. I welcome your thoughts and comments. The White House has responded to questions on this subject by making public a copy of the President’s birth certificate. To the best of my knowledge, there is no current government inquiry into the validity of that document. I remain very concerned about the direction in which President Obama is continuing to try to take our country. From skyrocketing federal deficits, to the legislation that authorizes a government takeover of our health care sector,...
