The Ron Paul Institute for Peach and Prosperity – Sat 21 Apr, 2018

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prospertity Big Al says: “To show my support for The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, I am going to start posting missives from it that I receive. This is part of my on-going study of current events in the Middle East. The majority of KER Politics going forward will be devoted to political issues that, we feel, directly impacts investing. The sporadicity of my “weekly” note to you over the past several weeks. I confess that the recent incredible drama over the “will he or won’t he” Trump Syria strike along with my obsessive determination to find cracks in the dominant media paradigm of what happened in Douma, Syria, on April 7th has led me to spend much time combing any and all available sources for information. But to fight war, it is absolutely essential to fight war propaganda. The war … Continue reading

Return to the Pentagon

This post Return to the Pentagon appeared first on Daily Reckoning. In my 2011 book, Currency Wars, I gave a detailed description of the first-ever financial war game sponsored by the Department of Defense. This financial war game took place in 2009 at the top-secret Applied Physics Laboratory located about twenty miles north of Washington, D.C. in the Maryland countryside. Unlike typical war games, the “rules of engagement” for this financial exercise did not permit the use of any kinetic weapons such as bombs, missiles or drones. The only weapons allowed were financial instrument including stocks, bonds, currencies, commodities and derivatives. The contestants included about 40 players on the six teams and another 60 participants including uniformed military, civilian defense officials and observers from the Treasury, Federal Reserve, CIA and other government agencies as well as think tanks, universities and financial industry professionals. In that original financial war game, a … Continue reading

Have You Noticed This New Oil Boom?

“A stealth bull market in crude is underway… and it probably has a lot more to go.” That is the exact prediction I made in a recent column… and I’m sticking with it. Admittedly, it’s a “crazy” forecast. Most analysts in the energy sector are expecting the oil price to tread water at best. But I think these analysts may be underestimating the strength of the global demand for crude oil. As you can see from this week’s chart, our own government’s Department of Energy (DOE) has been pretty bad at guessing it lately. Around the world, demand for oil during the last 12 months has been surprisingly strong. Not only has it outstripped supply by an average of 700,000 barrels per day (bpd), but in February, the number swelled to more than 2 million bpd! During that month, global demand for crude oil and other liquid fuels totaled nearly … Continue reading

Weekend Show – Sat 21 Apr, 2018

Hour 1 – Investing And Markets – Commodities and Stocks To Consider Download audio file (0421-KE-Report-Weekend-Show-.mp3) I have received a number of emails recently asking for a little more division on the weekend show between the investing and political side of things. I will post this weekend’s show in two parts so we can keep the comments separate. Please let me know how you like this format and any other suggestions you would like to see us implement. From a market perspective this week we had a couple stand out commodities that broke higher. Aluminum and nickel both benefited from sanction talks while oil continued to move higher creeping closer to $70/barrel. Silver also had a good day on Wednesday which we had much commentary on throughout the week. Please be sure to look back on the recent week of editorials and company updates that are linked below. Segment 1: … Continue reading

Canadian miner eyes New Zealand’s gold

Vancouver-based Full Metal Minerals (TSXV: FMM) announced today that it has entered into a Share Purchase Agreement with Australia’s Evolution Mining (EVN-ASX) to buy out the Puhipuhi Gold Project, located in the Northland region of the North Island of New Zealand. In a press release, Full Metal explained that Puhipuhi is an exploration stage epithermal gold project where high grade Au and Ag has been intercepted by drilling at localities over 2 km apart including 2 m at 17g/t Au and 15 g/t Ag, 0.6 m at 23.4 g/t Au and 146 g/t Ag and 2 m at 12.4 g/t Au and 85.0 g/t Ag. A 28 m vein intercept was also detected, but it hasn’t been followed up by subsequent drilling. The company also said that it considers this deposit analog to Oceana Gold’s Waihi Mine, a low sulphidation epithermal gold-silver deposit that has been in modern production since … Continue reading

How gold is improving cancer treatment

Researchers at the University of Queensland have developed new nanotechnology that includes gold particles and that is aimed at monitoring the diversity of individual cancer cells circulating in the body. The groundbreaking technique was tested on blood samples from melanoma patients and was able to track critical changes in spreading tumour cells before, during and after treatment. “We have developed a simple technology which uses a special type of gold nanoparticle attached to different antibodies, which can stick to different proteins on a wide variety of circulating tumour cells. These nanoparticles emit a unique barcoded signal when hit with laser light, and this signal changes ever so slightly if that nanoparticle encounters a circulating tumor cell and sticks to it, making them easy to detect,” said UQ’s Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology PhD student Jing Wang in a media statement. Professor Matt Trau and PhD student Jing Wang. Photo … Continue reading

From Fake Boom to Real Bust

Paradise in LA LA Land More is revealed with each passing day. You can count on it. But what exactly the ‘more is of’ requires careful discrimination. Is the ‘more’ merely more noise? Or is it something of actual substance? Today we endeavor to pass judgment, on your behalf. Normally, judgment would be passed on a Thursday, but we are making an exception. [PT] For example, here in the land of fruits and nuts, things are whacky, things are zany. Last month, State Senator, Dick Pan, introduced Senate Bill (SB) 1424, which would require California based websites to utilize fact checkers to verify news stories prior to publishing them. Who exactly these fact checkers would be – the moral servants that would save the world from the ills of fake news – was conveniently missing from the bill. Ironically, the control freaks in California state government can’t control themselves; they … Continue reading
