Trump’s War on Pedophiles Just Went Hot

0

from Rogue Money:
“My Administration is focused on ending the horrific practice of human trafficking, and the three bills the House of Representatives passed today are important steps forward. Since taking office, I have met with courageous survivors, non-profit groups, and faith leaders who are devoting tremendous energy to raising awareness about human trafficking. I am hopeful that the Senate will take up and pass these three bills as soon as possible and I look forward to my continued work with the Congress on this important issue.” — Statement from President Donald J. Trump on the Passage of H.R. 2664, H.R. 2480, and H.R. 2200, July 12, 2017

COT Report Gets Even More Favorable For Gold And Silver

0

by John Rubino, Dollar Collapse:
Just a quick, happy update on the gold/silver COT reports. See last week’s post for a little more background.

Speculators are running scared in the paper precious metals markets. And that’s a good thing.

The past few months’ correction has finally led hedge funds and other technical/momentum traders to shed their long positions and load up on short bets. Meanwhile the Commercials, which tend to be right at big turning points, are becoming much more bullish.

Historically, the kind of internal structure now evolving in the futures market has signaled the start of a new upswing in prices. That may or may not hold this time around. But if it’s not a screaming buy, it is an indication that that day is getting closer.

Bitcoin & All Cryptocurrencies Are Collapsing! We Are Witnessing The End of Blockchain!

by Jeff Berwick, The Dollar Vigilante:
Just kidding, again.

We are continuing to see bitcoin and most other cryptocurrencies sell-off, however, just as we said they should and would do after such a parabolic spike higher in the last few months.

Bitcoin has fallen the least of the major cryptocurrencies… again, just as we said it would.
It has fallen 26{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} from its high 34 days ago.

How to Build a Creative Renaissance – Decentralize or Die (Part 4)

0

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:
Man cannot do without beauty, and this is what our era pretends to want to disregard. It steels itself to attain the absolute and authority; it wants to transfigure the world before having exhausted it, to set it to rights before having understood it. Whatever it may say, our era is deserting this world.

– Albert Camus

The first three parts of this series largely focused on how decentralization is necessary in the political realm and should be applied more aggressively to governing structures. I believe moving to such a model is no longer just a quaint option, but absolutely required if we want to expand human liberty and build more voluntary, ethical and sane communities. That being said, decentralization can and should be applied to as many aspects of life as possible.

Global Currency Reserve at Risk – Jim Willie

by Jim Willie, Gold Seek:
Within the US borders, the population remains largely ignorant of the true significance of the global currency reserve concept. It is of paramount importance, yet almost never discussed in the financial press. The public within the United States simply assumes the country operates with the USDollar as its currency, with near blindness to its global role in trade and banking. The end of an era is coming, as the change will be powerful in its effect. The shock wave could hit this year in some form, in a manner to highlight its importance.

Reasons Emerge for Worst Chain-Restaurant Slump since 2009

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:
Six quarters in a row of year-over-year declines.

Foot traffic at chain restaurants fell 3{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} in June year-over-year. Same-store sales fell 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528}, the 16th month in a row of year-over-year declines, completing the sixth quarter in a row of sales declines, the longest downturn since 2009.

Food sales were down, alcohol sales were down. The only thing that was up was prices, but it wasn’t enough to make up for the decline in guest count: the average amount per check rose just 2{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} in June.

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:
It’s Friday morning, on what could be a key inflectionary day in monetary history. Which is quite the extraordinary statement, when considering that mere minutes ago, I was, for once, having trouble formulating the day’s principal message. That said, when I looked through my notes – of the past 24 hours’ articles; and comments I jotted down about various topics; two charts caught my eye – which subsequently, catalyzed the revelation of why rates will never be “allowed” to rise. That is, until the bond vigilantes inevitably arrive to overwhelm government “monetizers”; in the same manner that soaring physical gold and silver demand will inevitably – and likely, simultaneously, overwhelm the naked paper shorters.

First, a chart depicting the U.S government’s record monthly outlay in June – of a whopping $429 billion, yielding a $90 billion monthly deficit. Which, I might add, was attributed to “higher subsidy costs for student loans; and to a lesser extent, housing guarantees.”

3 Examples That Show How Common Core Is Destroying Math Education In America

0

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
Whenever you let federal bureaucrats get their hands on anything they are probably going to ruin it. During the Obama administration, the Department of Education spearheaded a transformation of American education that was absolutely breathtaking. Over a period of about five years, Common Core standards were implemented in almost every state in the entire nation. Unfortunately, this has resulted in a huge step backward for public education in this country. Common Core has been called “state-sponsored child abuse”, and it is a big reason why U.S. students are scoring so poorly on standardized tests compared to much of the rest of the world.
