Oregon Passes Law to Allow Judge to Order Gun Confiscation from Law Abiding Citizens

3

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:
The state of Oregon is largely run by Communists and Communist sympathizers. In one of the latest bills, the state claims to give the right (unlawfully) to a judge to strip law abiding citizens of their arms and concealed handgun licenses based on the judge’s own determination without any criminal conviction.

According to SB719, which was co-sponsored by Senator Bian Boquist (R-Dallas), a judge can issue an ex parte ruling in order to confiscate a citizen’s guns.

The legislation, which has passed both the House and the Senate, now heads to the Governor Kate Brown’s desk for her signature.

Ever More Official Lies From the US Government

0

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:
The false reality constructed for Americans parallels perfectly the false reality constructed by Big Brother in George Orwells’ dystopic novel 1984.

Consider the constant morphing of “the Muslim threat” from al-Qaeda to the Taliban, to al-Nursra, to ISIS to ISIL, to Daesh with a jump to Russia. All of a sudden 16 years of Middle East wars against “terrorists” and “dictators” have become a matter of standing up to Russia, the country most threatened by Muslim terrorism, and the country most capable of wiping the United States and its vassal empire off of the face of the earth.

Domestically, Americans are assured that, thanks to the Federal Reserve’s policy of quantitative easing, that is, flooding the financial markets with newly printed money that has driven up the prices of stocks and bonds, America has enjoyed an economic recovery since June of 2009, which must be one of the longest recoveries in history despite the absence of growth in median real family incomes, despite the growth in real retail sales, despite the falling labor force participation rate, despite the lack of high value-added, high productivity, high wage jobs.

The Bankers’ Endgame and the Rise of Gold and Silver

by Darryl Robert Schoon, Gold Seek:
In May 2007, in Subprime America Infects Asia and Europe I predicted a severe financial crisis was imminent: the risks that have lain dormant beneath globalization’s foundation are about to erupt and a reordering of the world’s financial geography is about to ensue. It’s spring 2007 and the sun is shining in the US, backyard BBQs are being cleaned in anticipation of summer’s use. A severe financial crisis, however, is in the offing; a crisis as unexpected as the Golden State Warrior’s last minute steak to the NBA playoffs.

An unexpected financial crisis, however, will be much more consequential than Don Nelson’s magical resurrection of the Warrior’s NBA hopes. There, at least, the Warriors will have a chance. But because most people don’t know a financial crisis is coming, they will have little chance of survival. This summer, America’s subprime CDOs are coming home to roost, and not just to the US.

Greenland Ice Melt Caused by More Sunny Days, Not Catastrophic Climate Change, Scientists Discover

by Amy Goodrich, Natural News:
Since the mid-1990s, the Greenland ice sheet has been losing ice mass at a fast rate, resulting in raising sea levels worldwide. Lately, Greenland’s loss of ice has been the center of climate-related news. Though climate change alarmists blame global warming and CO2 emissions as the driving factors behind the accelerated rate of ice melt in Greenland, a new study, published in the online journal Science Advances, tells a different tale.

A team of researchers, led by the University of Bristol, has discovered that a decrease in summer clouds is causing an abrupt reduction in surface ice mass, not rising temperatures or catastrophic climate change events.

These Days Young Men In America Are Working A Lot Less And Playing Video Games A Lot More

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
If you could stay home and play video games all day, would you do it? According to a brand new report that was released by the National Bureau of Economic Research on Monday, American men from the ages of 21 to 30 are working a lot less these days. In fact, on average men in this age group worked 203 fewer hours per year in 2015 than they did in 2000. So what did they do with all of that extra time? According to the study, a large portion of the time that young men used to spend working is now being spent playing video games.

It is certainly no secret that young men like video games. But the study found that in recent years the amount of time young men dedicate to gaming has shot up dramatically

One Trader Made $200M Trading Ethereum… And Nobody Knows Who To Tax

from ZeroHedge:
During Ethereum’s big rally last month, when the price of a single coin went from $220 to just shy of $400 in the span of two weeks, one trader turned $55 million of paper wealth into more than $398 million. And nobody knows who they are, or – more importantly – who to tax.

As Bloomberg so astutely observes, the growing number of wealthy crypto investors is starting to infuriate regulators, who are now calling for more transparency in the cryptocurrency market. Specifically, they’re arguing that it’s time for cryptocurrency wallets to include information that might help identify users. Otherwise – they say – the continued association with criminality – cemented by the Dread Pirate Roberts’s life sentence – could start to impact the crypto-asset market which now has an aggregate valuation approaching McDonald’s Corp.

The Ultimate Precious Metal Portfolio High-Grading Opportunity

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:
I have many important things to say in today’s very important, and pragmatic, article; and thus, am starting it early Sunday morning. After which, I’ll take a break, and resume Monday morning – so you won’t miss a moment of real-time commentary, in an ever-changing, and increasingly “PiMBEEB,” world.

To start, my increasingly strong belief that Precious Metals are set up for a sharp rebound in the not-too-distant future. Not that I know why the Cartel has been so vicious in recent weeks – starting the day of the Fed’s shockingly unexpected “hawkish hike” last month; when, despite an onslaught of negative economic news, the “data dependent” FOMC’s statement; whilst objectively, being as far from “hawkish” as possible; didn’t offer a single hint that it might slow its (turtle-like, statistically insignificant) “tightening” cycle any time soon. This, as gold was just about to break above $1,300/oz, with both metals on the verge of decidedly breaching their 200 week moving averages and 5½ year downtrend lines. Hint, hint.

Flash Crashes Are a Permanent Part of U.S. Markets: Should You Worry?

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall Street On Parade:

Over the past year, there have been flash crashes in multiple markets, raising concerns that fat fingers, algorithms and/or rogue hedge fund traders are still running amok. We’ll get to the specifics in a moment, but to put the unusual trading patterns in context, you need some important background information.

Wall Street On Parade began reporting on flash crash activity following the Granddaddy of all flash crashes thus far – the event on May 6, 2010 when the stock market did a bungee jump, briefly plunging 998 points, with hundreds of stocks momentarily losing 60 per cent or more of their value and knocking out stop-loss orders for retail investors. Former SEC Chair Mary Schapiro estimated at the time that individual investors had lost more than $200 million in these improperly triggered stop loss orders on May 6.
