"We have found Korans, prayers rugs and many other unusual items that raise concern"

You seem to have blown by that little quote. So I guess you defending this means there's no way we have terrorists coming through? Am I understanding this correctly?

Since when is a Koran or a prayer rug an unusual item or cause for concern?

...and how does a Koran or prayer rug found in Texas place a woman in Canada atop Al Q's lap?

Mossad Chief predicted “three teens will be kidnapped” week before it happened

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

Every time the Israeli government finds itself in a jam, its enemies rush in to save it. Or so we are supposed to believe.

The pattern is unmistakeable: The US is leaning on Israel to freeze or dismantle settlements…and suddenly a suicide bomb goes off.  The international community has Israel up against a wall…another bomb goes off. Argentina’s Jewish community starts turning anti-Zionist…and the Israeli embassy and Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires get blown up.

Today, the whole world is recognizing and applauding Palestine’s new coalition government featuring the newly-reconciled PLA and Hamas. Israel is going crazy, screaming about the “evil Hamas terrorists.” Suddenly three Israeli teens are allegedly kidnapped. Israel blames Hamas, and initiates a brutal crackdown in the West Bank.

But Hamas had nothing to gain, and everything to lose, from pulling off this kind of kidnapping. The only beneficiary is Israel, which wants to delegitimize the Palestinian coalition government. The situation fairly screams “false flag!”

Now it has emerged that the head of the Israeli Mossad actually “called” the kidnapping a week in advance! Haaretz just reported:

Mossad chief’s chillingly prescient kidnap prophecy

Ten days ago, Tamir Pardo outlined a scenario that was spookily similar to the kidnapping of three teens missing in the West Bank since Thursday.

By Barak Ravid

Ten days ago, at a security cabinet meeting, Mossad Chief Tamir Pardo outlined a scenario spookily similar to the kidnapping of the three Israeli teens missing since Thursday night… “What will you do if in a week three 14-year-old girls will be kidnapped from one of the settlements?,”  he asked. “Will you say there is a law, and we don’t release terrorists?”

So Tamir Pardo has just won a place for himself in the False Flag prognosticators’ Hall of Fame alongside:

*Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Wolfowitz, Cambone, Cohen, Kagan, Kristol, Libby, Rosen, Shulsky, and other PNAC-ers who called for a New Pearl Harbor in September, 2000 and got it exactly one year later.

*Philip Zelikow, who published a 1998 article in Foreign Affairs speculating on the psychological, political and cultural consequences of a massive Pearl Harbor style attack on America such as the destruction of the World Trade Center.

*Nick Rockefeller, who prior to 9/11 told Aaron Russo “there’s going to be an event” that would send America to war and usher in a National Security State of Emergency.

*Peter Power, the head of Visor Consultants, who confessed that the 7/7 London bombings perfectly mimicked a terror exercise that envisioned bombs going off in the four exact same locations at the exact same times that the real bombs went off.

*The Hollywood folks behind these 9/11 foreshadowings from “The Lone Gunman” and “The Simpsons”:

Rapist Really Upset Victim May Have Given Him HIV

He collapsed when told he could be infected

By Rob Quinn,  Newser Staff

(Newser) –
Sympathy is likely to be in short supply for Richard Thomas as he waits to find out whether he caught HIV from the woman he raped. The British man was sentenced to five years for the crime yesterday and the court was told that he will find out whether he has the virus later this week, the BBC reports. Thomas let himself into the woman's house in the middle of the night and she awoke to find him raping her, the court heard. Thomas says he had been drinking and taking drugs, and doesn't remember the attack.

Thomas knew the victim and knew she had another illness but was unaware she had HIV, and the Daily Mail reports that he collapsed and asked to be taken to the hospital when police informed him that he could be infected. "It is his own fault," his own lawyer told the court. "If he had not committed this offense he would not have placed himself in this position."

Shanghai to host BRICS Bank: Putin aide
July 11, 2014, 8:18 am

Both the Bank and a $100 billion contingency reserve fund for the BRICS nations
will be launched during the Brazil Summit on 15-16 July []

The much awaited BRICS bank will be headquartered in Shanghai, Kremlin aide Yury Ushakov said in Moscow on Thursday. However, South African Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies said in Pretoria on Friday that the final stamp on the location of the Bank will be delivered by the Heads of State at the Summit in Brazil next week.

All the BRICS nations apart from Brazil had bid to host the $100 billion development Bank. Both the Bank and a $100 billion contingency reserve fund for the BRICS nations will be launched during the Brazil Summit on 15-16 July.

“Thus, the basis for the macroeconomic coordination of the five states will be laid. The new institutions will allow enforcing the global finance system, which is particularly important amid the IMF reform that reached a deadlock,” said Ushakov.

The location of the Bank has already been recorded in the official documents said Ushakov.

The BRICS countries will initially underwrite $50 billion in capital to the BRICS bank, in equal parts of $10 billion each, said a Brazilian Foreign Ministry official in Rio de Janeiro earlier this week. The $50 billion will be eventually built up to $100 billion.

The Bank will have a rotating chair similar to the BRICS Business Council, although the announcement on the first chairman of the Bank will possibly be announced during the Summit next week.

The five founding members of the new Bank will retain controlling interest should any new members be admitted and the BRICS share will never dip below 55 per cent.

Noted columnist and Russia expert Mark Adomanis says the BRICS Bank is likely to suffer significant growing pains but “the simple fact of its creation demonstrates the shockingly rapid pace of change of the past decade”.

“Ten years ago the creation of such a bank would have been greeted with open derision and laughter in Washington, London, Paris, and other Western capitals. They’re certainly not laughing anymore,” writes Adomanis.

As an aside, I plan to be hanging on every word uttered out of the mouth of Jim Sinclair. The man is a sage! Cheesy

I haven't carried debt for 5 years - beyond the odd small monthly credit card balance payoff each month I make on the one card I keep open and use for a small purchase once a month just to maintain an open credit file. I hope to never have to borrow again, but you just never know what life may throw at you.

I pay cash for everything now - homes, cars, etc. I only own 1 dwelling, and it's a rather fine home I just had built. I do own some vacant land, and the oil and gas they pull out of the ground there and pay me my 20% of each month makes it worth holding on to.  Grin

From day 1 she had Obama's back, so why should you or anyone else question where she stands now or then? She's always been consistent. And to be fair, during the Clinton years, she had a few battles of her own to fight against the Texas Cattlemen association, who decided to sue her empire for announcing her personal choice not to eat meat... and Clinton's extra-curricular pecadilloes were not something a person of dignity tends to run towards were they?

Cash saving is not something I'm big on, at least not long term. Cash to me is temporary liquid currency that allows me to buy things - especially valuable things like sound investments and a nice home. And most of the stocks I buy are issued by companies who earn large sums and tend to have lots of valuable assets. A highly diversified high yield debt portfolio at certain times is another favorite tool of mine and others.

I'm not big on cash saving either, that's why I save in gold. Tongue
And not just any gold, the same asset class of gold used by all central banks & Govt's worldwide to settle debts between themselves, in smaller, more transaction friendly weights for maximum flexibility & liquidity.

Unfortunately, we do need cash to function in society, (at the moment) so I let my system for saving, generate the cash flow we're required to have in order to function in society, AND generate for me free gold to save.

I don't consider a house an asset unless or until it's generating a positive cash flow.

I consider a house a bank's or municipality's asset that you get to live in, pay for, and maintain.
For the "home owner" it's a pure liability.

I only consider it an investment if it's purchased with the intent to sell and make a profit, but I don't consider it an investment to purchase a home worth $500K and waiting for it to be valued at $750K to make a quarter million profit. To me, that's a speculative gamble. It could be a very calculated speculative gamble with all i's dotted & all t's crossed, well researched with strong indicators that it will soon be valued at $750K, but it is still a speculative gamble, to me. However, a house valued at $750,000 purchased for $500,000 ?? For me, THAT's an investment... I only consider it an investment when your profit is made at the time of the purchase, rather than at the time of the sale. That's just how my crazy mind works Cheesy

I prefer to steer clear of debt, own, as well as anybody else's.
I consider Indebtedness simply a form of enslavement, and I prefer freedom, for myself, ...and others.

I like gold and other metals among other "alternative investments" as part of my portfolio. I also invest in foreign investments via ADRs, emerging markets bonds, etc.

I just don't see gold or anything else alone as the one be-all end-all of everything. Oil and recently gas have also been very good to me.

And if somehow the dollar ever truly becomes worthless and institutions like Goldman, Wells Fargo, and JPM ever truly totally crumble, and the stocks of all publicly traded American companies also become worthless, I think water, nonperishable food, guns & ammo, etc will be far more likely to help one survive than physical gold.

To think that the stocks of all publicly traded companies are essentially worthless is to certainly say that all private companies are the same. Why even bother starting or maintaining a business?

water, non-perishable food, guns & ammo etc., are always good to have as a form of insurance IMO, however, I'm not talking survival insurance, I'm talking about what I choose to do as a form of financial insurance.

If big institutions were to crumble, I'm sure there will be all sorts of bails-in before that occurs, but who knows?  Huh What I see is a systemic issue that will result in an inevitable outcome. Too many lies, too many liars, and a lot of systemic institutional corruption leaves me with little confidence. It matters not to me how honest my broker, or banker may be. I see an issue systemically that leaves me with little confidence in their system.

In any event, whatever dustup occurs, a reset will take effect, and in the meantime, commerce will need to continue, ...and economic energy & purchasing power will be preserved until we are able to see ourselves out of the other side of the reset.

I'm not very confident in the markets, so I am exchanging currency that I would otherwise put into a savings account, into gold, as a preservation of value & purchasing power. I'm using the gold as a storehouse for the economic energy contain in the currency at the time of my gold acquisitions.

I'm talking about SAVING, not INVESTING. Investments are a whole different matter.

When I choose to invest, I will allocate currency from my investment accounts into suitable investments, if & when I find something worthy of my investment. Until then, I am choosing to preserve the value, economic energy, and purchasing power of the currency that I allocate for savings into a vessel that will retain & preserve their value.

I'm of the opinion that paper derivatives, stocks, bonds etc., are like buckets with holes. They leak value & purchasing power. The numbers of dollars on the balance sheet may go up, the listed "value" (priced in dollars) may go up, however, it means nothing to me when inflation has outpaced the rate at which those stated values (priced in dollars) have gone up. Smoke & Mirrors.

In 1971:
  • $1 in paper currency bought 4 loaves of bread.
  •  1 gram of gold bought 5 loaves of bread

  • $1 in paper currency barely buys 8 slices of bread
  •  1 gram of gold buys 20 loaves of bread

Even with a 500% return on that initial $1 in paper currency, I would not have preserved value, and still have a 75% loss of purchasing power of my initial capital, even though I'm thinking I'm doing well with a 500% increase in value (priced in paper currency)

And I'm suppose to use paper currency as a means of storing wealth, economic energy or purchasing power??

I DON'T THINK SO.   Shocked

So for me, my conclusions are obvious... GOLD is my preferred vehicle to preserve the value, economic energy, and purchasing power of my money.

I see too much counter-party risk in a traditional savings account for far too little return. The possibility  likelihood of bail-INs, the certainty of inflation eating away at it's purchasing power... no thank you. Therefore, instead of putting savings into a digital or paper currency savings account that will never pay me enough interest to stay ahead of inflation, I choose to put it into a form that preserves it's economic energy & purchasing power that cannot be hacked or printed out of thin air.

$100,000 stored in paper currency from 1913 has the same purchasing power of $2,000 today.

The same $100,000 from 1913, had it been saved in gold, rather than in paper, or as a digital ledger entry would have the purchasing power of close to $4.5 million today.

Because of this, I am choosing to use Gold as my long term vessel for my savings in order to preserve it's value.

When we choose an institution or entity to store our savings, most often the savings are held in digital or paper derivative, and the only perks they offer is a toaster, an iPad, or some such nonsense... before they fee you to death, or penalize you for withdrawing your own savings before they're done profiting off it, and further devaluing it in the process.

The entity I have chosen with which to accumulate my savings, provides me with better perks & incentives, and rewards me with cash amounts that are well ahead of inflation, gives me free gold, and doesn't penalize me if I want to withdraw my savings.

4 Year Old Destroys Babysitter’s Plan To “Blame The Black Man” In Home Robbery

It’s no secret that “blame the black man” is a time honored tradition in America. And since there is still so much fear and suspicion that lingers when it comes to black men, it’s proven quite effective, even today, when you want to pin a crime on someone.

But luckily, four year old Abby Dean of Whatcom County, Washington was there to save the day with her heroic honesty. As a child, it can be hard to speak truth to authority figures, hell even as an adult. But when Abby’s 17 year old babysitter claimed that her employer’s home had been burglarized by two black men, it was Abby who stepped forward to set the record straight.

The extremely intelligent four year old told a Fox affiliate that “Wednesday was the worst day in my life.” She was there when the house was burglarized and told reporters that the robbers “… told us to get out of the house ’cause they wanted to steal stuff.”

They stole a number of the employer’s belongings and Abby recalled that they nabbed her kitty bank, iPod, Xbox and Wii.

When questioned by authorities the babysitter told police that one of the thieves looked like the next door neighbor, a black man.

Cody Oaks, Dean’s neighbor, was handcuffed and questioned by police for hours until Abby chimed in to tell authorities the truth.

She said,“It wasn’t the right skin color.” She said that the robbers were white and not black. Once Abby spoke up the babysitter’s edifice of lies started to topple and she confessed to the crime, admitting that it was her 16 year old boyfriend and another accomplice who had actually robbed the house. Abby’s mother said she’s very proud of her daughter, noting that within 30 seconds her admission changed the questioning scene which had been going on for five to six hours.

Oaks, the neighbor, says what he finds troubling is the fact that the babysitter doesn’t realize the type of danger she could have potentially caused for him and his family and he hopes she learns from this situation.

The babysitter and her two accomplices were arrested and may face robbery, burglary and perjury charges.

Take a look at this video of Abby explaining the ordeal to the news crew. Listening to her speak, it’s clear that the babysitter didn’t understand what type of child she was dealing with. This little girl is too sharp for the shenanigans and potentially life altering, bold-faced lies.

Stop-losses don't always work. If you're short 100 shares of XYZ at $10 with an $11 stop, what do you think happens when it's announced outside of market hours that XYZ either got bought out for $19, or they open up at $30 the next morning in pre-market trading because it was announced outside of market hours that their cancer drug got FDA approval? If you had bet the ranch on that company hitting the pink sheets eventually, or on that drug not getting approved, you're screwed.

Also, you always need both a buyer and a seller on each end. Depending upon what you're investing in and when, it may sometimes be hard to find someone to sell you something or buy it from you.

And it does happen that sometimes even very smart people let their egos get the best of them. They see a $10 or less book value tech stock trading at $20, and think there's no way it will hold on to double digits. Before you know it, it's at $100, and the bigshot shorts more. Then he completely pigs out at $200. At $400 he's in the poor house and closing up shop. Happened quite a bit before the tech bubble popped.

Broker Dealers in recent years have gone more towards a fiduciary relationship with clients, and many brokers at better firms tend to also be registered investment advisors. I haven't been a retail broker for years. I run a small private investment fund dealing strictly with a limited number of accredited investors with an aggregate of well under $150 mil... at $150 mil in assets, all sorts of excess regulatory headaches come into play, so money is returned to investors near that point. I'm not selling anything, anyone, or taking on new clients.

Someone with a few grand may be alright buying an index fund or really digging in and finding a few good investments if they have the time and temperament. Many with 5 figures might do best to invest with a few of the better fund managers if they don't have the time or temperament to pick their own stocks and other investments. Those with 6-7 figures or more will usually need at least some help from professionals at some point - income, principal protection, and tax issues, etc. And those with 8 figures or more definitely need help - taxes, income, estate planning, gifting, etc.

What I see in the markets is a lot of smoke & mirrors, and simultaneous bubbles in the making.
I intend for me & my money to be well clear of the monumental crash when it occurs, ...and occur it will IMO
