Also note there is no such thing as 100% security today. If "they" really want to find an individual they likely will. If "they" really want to see what you are doing, they likely will be able to with enough manpower put to use.

The goal is to make this as difficult as possible for "them", and there are ways to make it very difficult. You can spoof metadata, there are tools to do it. You can spoof your MAC address and IP address. You can use disc encryption and use forward secrecy. You can use fake aliases. You can route into other obscure encrypted decentralized networks. All of this is possible with the right know how and tools.

The goal should be obfuscating as much data as possible while online, encrypting as much as possible and erasing your tracks as much as possible. And using alternative platforms when needed.

I hear you loud and clear, but that's just not a real counter argument really, it's just your opinion towards specific people which you generalize, categorize, and label for your own comfort. Just because some guy online says one thing doesn't mean they have no opinion about other things, they just didn't bother sharing said opinions publicly or perhaps they already had through other means, nobody knows, and you sure can't claim to know either. Stop demonizing everyone, just accept what's true and don't self victimize about issues that people didn't even mention. Getting triggered about what people didn't say is a bad habit of complaining too much online, and you truly don't know those you accuse without substantial evidence just as they don't know you, arguing ignorantly about off topic shit that doesn't even matter. Grow up, don't associate me with your stereotype either, it's called being an individual with their own priorities, experience, thoughts, etc. Those that seek something needs to enlighten themselves in whatever subject before looking for like minded peers better than you to help you get better, but nobody is entitled to help, especially those that complain about free anonymous "help"/criticism. Count your blessings.

The One Good Thing About The Trump Presidency: Stupid Is Still Better Than Evil Reader 01/20/2018 (Sat) 16:52:01 Id: 81a8f0 [Preview] No. 5625 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Just a few days shy of the one year since the inauguration of Donalt Trump as President of the United States I think that it would be reasonable to say that pretty much everybody, besides the Neocons and a few unconditional supporters, is now feeling quite appalled at what the past year brought to the USA and the planet. Those who hated Trump don’t hate him any less, while those who had hopes for Trump, such as myself, now have to accept that these hopes never materialized. I think that if we imagine a Hillary Presidency then the word “evil” would be a good way to describe what such a Presidency would most likely have been like. Likewise, if I had to chose a single word to describe the Trump Presidency, at least so far, I think that this word should be “stupid”. I won’t even bother, as I had initially planned, to list all the stupid things Trump has said and done since his inauguration (those who think otherwise might as well stop reading here). I will say that it gives me no pleasure writing this because I also had hopes that Trump would fulfill at least some of his campaign promises (even though most of my support for him was based on the fact that he was not Hillary who, I still believe, would have brought the USA and Russia to war against each other). Furthermore, each time I recall Trump’s inauguration speech I have this painful sense of a most important and totally missed opportunity: to finally restore the sovereignty of the USA to the the people of the USA and to return to a civilized and rational international policy. Alas, this did not happen and that is a reality we have to accept and deal with.

I also want to clarify that when I say that the Trump Presidency can be best summed up with the word “stupid” I don’t just mean The Donald himself. I mean the entire Administration (I don’t mention Congress, as Congress as been about stupid for as long as I can recall it). If you wonder how I can call an entire administration “stupid” even though it is composed of often brilliant civil servants, lawyers, academic, technical specialists, etc I will simply reply that I don’t judge an administration by the resumes of those working for it, but simply by its output, what it actually does. If what this administration produces is a lot of stupid, then this is a stupid administration.

Stupid can mean a lot of different things. For example, it can mean stupid threats against North Korea. That is a very frightening kind of stupid. But there is also a very good kind of stupid. For example, I think that the decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is a wonderful kind of stupid which I warmly welcome.


Because it is the kind of stupid which tremendously weakens the AngloZionist Empire!

Think of the damage this truly stupid move did to not only the US international reputation (which indeed was already pretty close to zero even before this latest move) but also to the US capability to get anything done at all the the Middle-East. The military defeat of the USA in Iraq and Afghanistan and the political defeat of the USA in Syria just needed a little something to truly make the USA irrelevant in the Middle-East and now, thanks to Donald Trump, this has now happened! Furthermore, there was a dirty little secret which everybody new about which has now become a public fact:


Again this is all very good. Even better is the fact that the only ones disagreeing with this would be Honduras, Guatemala, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Togo, Nauru and southern Sudan and, of course, Israel.

When was that second tweet posted? The reason I ask is because Trump met with the leader of China about this issue, and he might have changed his conclusion. That does not necessarily mean he's contradicting himself over and over.

My assumption was that Trump was stupid enough to respond to North Korea by threatening to NUKE them, in front of the whole UN I might add. Makes the US look like a pack of rabid war hungry loons.... OK, not all of us actually are.

Chinese Govt Bans Our Plastic Garbage From Being Exported, Environmentalists Now In A Rut Reader 01/21/2018 (Sun) 18:07:47 Id: cc4bb3 [Preview] No. 5659 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As Halifax staff research the idea of banning plastic bags in the municipality, they'll soon find themselves entangled in a global problem with no simple solutions.

Tony Walker, assistant professor in Dalhousie University's School for Resource and Environmental Studies, said six months ago, all seemed well. Much of the developed world was going along with decent recycling programs.

"Here in Nova Scotia, we were fairly ahead of the curve. In the late 1990s, early 2000s, we were probably doing better than the rest of North America and certainly the rest of Canada," he told CBC News in a phone interview Friday.

And then China closed the doors to our plastic bags. Walker said like many people he was surprised to learn that a Sobeys bag left for curbside pickup in Halifax sailed all the way to China to be recycled.

In a correspondence published in Nature Thursday, he said China's decision "could be a game changer if it weans us off plastic and forces us to seek sustainable alternatives."

"We're surrounded by single-use plastics: straws, cups, bottles, that sort of thing. Plastic bags is one component of a large social problem."

Bags designed to last the trip home go on to last for a very long time, entangling animals, entering the food system, and winding up as microplastics in the bellies of birds and sea creatures. Perhaps even in that fish you brought home from the store.

The federal government could look at shitholes such as Germany, Denmark and Kenya, all of which have banned plastic bags.

A second solution could be laws compelling the companies that produce the bags to ultimately dispose of them. "So if you're going to be a manufacturer of plastics or plastic bags, then you should also build into your business model the cost of end-of-life," Walker said.

I'd say use the 'combustion' method and turn it into a source of energy, that way it won't all be wasted sitting inside a landfill somewhere.

It would have to be incinerated at a rather high temperature since plastics emit some rather nasty chemicals when burned normally.

Personally I would rather see stores going back to paper bags. Recyclable domestically, burns relatively cleanly if that is how you dispose of them, and biodegradable if put in a landfill. Reusable cloth bags are also an option, but since they are more commonly associated with the poor (discount grocery stores like Aldi use them almost exclusively to save money and provide revenue by selling the bags) good luck getting people to use them.

Not to mention unlike what environmentalists would like you to believe, the vast majority of paper trees grow on dedicated farmland and not cut down "in the wild". This was the silly argument that led to the overuse of plastic bags in the first place.

>Personally I would rather see stores going back to paper bags.

Paper bags are fine, but they can be a bitch when they tear under pressure or weight. Like plastic I'd probably be double bagging those too. I'd be fine with paper bags, hell, back in the day thats all we ever used at our local markets.

>Not to mention unlike what environmentalists would like you to believe, the vast majority of paper trees grow on dedicated farmland and not cut down "in the wild". This was the silly argument that led to the overuse of plastic bags in the first place.

Thats what I don't like about environmentalists, they make some decent points now and then, but they often go way overboard and even worse, never find any reasonable solution to what they bitch about. Everything must be a problem for them.

It reminds me of them protesting Obama's new library in Chicago, although they want it built... they can't decide where to build it because "muh nature, muh public land!"

Republicans Have Four Easy Ways To #ReleaseTheMemo... Not Doing So Will Prove Them Shameless Frauds Reader 01/21/2018 (Sun) 16:55:15 Id: a3ec40 [Preview] No. 5655 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

One of the gravest and most damaging abuses of state power is to misuse surveillance authorities for political purposes. For that reason, The Intercept, from its inception, has focused extensively on these issues.

We therefore regard as inherently serious strident warnings from public officials alleging that the FBI and Department of Justice have abused their spying power for political purposes.

Social media this week has been flooded with inflammatory and quite dramatic claims now being made by congressional Republicans about a four-page memo alleging abuses of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act spying processes during the 2016 election. This memo, which remains secret, was reportedly written under the direction of the chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, GOP Rep. Devin Nunes, and has been read by dozens of members of Congress after the committee voted to make the memo available to all members of the House of Representatives to examine in a room specially designated for reviewing classified material.

The rhetoric issuing from GOP members who read the memo is notably extreme.

North Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Meadows, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, called the memo “troubling” and “shocking” and said, “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”

GOP Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania stated: “You think about, ‘Is this happening in America or is this the KGB?’ That’s how alarming it is.”

This has led to a ferocious outcry on the right to “release the memo” – and presumably thereby prove that the Obama administration conducted unlawful surveillance on the Trump campaign and transition.

On Thursday night, Fox News host and stalwart Trump ally Sean Hannity claimed that the memo described “the systematic abuse of power, the weaponizing of those powerful tools of intelligence and the shredding of our Fourth Amendment constitutional rights.”

The good news is there are at least four easy ways for congressional Republicans and/or Trump to definitively prove that all the right’s darkest suspicions about the Obama administration are true. If this memo and the underlying documents prove even a fraction of what GOP politicians and media figures are claiming about them, then what could possibly justify its ongoing concealment? Any or all of these methods should be promptly invoked to ensure that the public sees this evidence:

1. Trump can declassify anything he wants.

All classification by the U.S. government has no basis in laws passed by Congress (with one tiny exception that is irrelevant here). Rather, all classification is based on presidential executive orders, which rely on the president’s constitutional role as commander in chief of the armed forces. According to the Supreme Court, the presidential power “to classify and control access to information bearing on national security … flows primarily from the constitutional investment of power in the president.”

2. The House (and Senate) intelligence committees can declassify any material they possess.

According to the procedural rules of both houses of Congress, their intelligence committees can declassify material in their possession if the committee votes that such declassification would be in the public interest. It is then declassified after five days unless the president formally objects. If the president does object, the full chamber votes on the question.

3. The Constitution protects members of Congress from prosecution for “any speech or debate in either House.”

Members of Congress have legal immunity for acts they commit as part of the legislative process. Article I, Section 6, clause 1 of the Constitution states that “for any speech or debate in either House, [Senators and Representatives] shall not be questioned in any other place.” It is this constitutional shield that protected Sen. Mike Gravel of Alaska from legal consequences in 1971 when he read sections of the Pentagon Papers during a meeting of the Senate Subcommittee on Public Buildings and Grounds, and then placed the rest of the Pentagon Papers into the Congressional Record.

It’s true that members could face legal consequences for ancillary acts — perhaps if they unlawfully removed the relevant material from the congressional SCIF. But they could go to the House floor and describe both the memo’s revelations and the underlying evidence for it without any fear of legal consequences.

NSA Deletes All Bush-Era Surveillance Data It Was Ordered To Preserve Reader 01/21/2018 (Sun) 16:02:12 Id: 639fd8 [Preview] No. 5654 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
There is a growing consensus among many observers in Washington that the national security agencies have become completely politicized over the past seventeen years and are now pursuing selfish agendas that actually endanger what remains of American democracy.

As Philip Giraldi notes, up until recently it has been habitual to refer to such activity as the Deep State, which is perhaps equivalent to the Establishment in that it includes financial services, the media, major foundations and constituencies, as well as lobbying groups, but we are now witnessing an evolutionary process in which the national security regime is exercising power independently.

Nowhere is that "independence" of the 'state within a state' more evident than in the blatant and egregious news this week that The National Security Agency destroyed surveillance data it pledged to preserve in connection with pending lawsuits and apparently never took some of the steps it told a federal court it had taken to make sure the information wasn’t destroyed, according to recent court filings.

As Politico reports, the agency tells a federal judge that it is investigating and "sincerely regrets its failure."

Since 2007, the NSA has been under court orders to preserve data about certain of its surveillance efforts that came under legal attack following disclosures that President George W. Bush ordered warrantless wiretapping of international communications after the 2001 terrorist attacks on the U.S. In addition, the agency has made a series of representations in court over the years about how it is complying with its duties.

However, the NSA told U.S. District Court Judge Jeffrey White in a filing on Thursday night and another little-noticed submission last year that the agency did not preserve the content of internet communications intercepted between 2001 and 2007 under the program Bush ordered. To make matters worse, backup tapes that might have mitigated the failure were erased in 2009, 2011 and 2016, the NSA said.

“The NSA sincerely regrets its failure to prevent the deletion of this data,” NSA’s deputy director of capabilities, identified publicly as “Elizabeth B.,” wrote in a declaration filed in October.

“NSA senior management is fully aware of this failure, and the Agency is committed to taking swift action to respond to the loss of this data.”

Defiance of a court order should result in civil or criminal contempt charges, as well as sanctions against the party responsible. So far, no one involved appears to have asked White to impose any punishment or sanction on the NSA over the newly disclosed episodes, although the details of what happened are still emerging.

Democrats Complicit in Every Murder Committed by Illegal Immigrants Reader 01/21/2018 (Sun) 15:47:48 Id: 980042 [Preview] No. 5653 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Democrats are complicit in illegal immigrant violent crime and murder so long as they continue blocking funding for a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and hold up negotiations on pro-American immigration reforms, President Trump’s new campaign ad states.

The ad was released a day after Senate Democrats voted to shut down the federal government because the spending bill to keep the government open did not include amnesty for at least 3.5 million illegal aliens, as Breitbart News reported.

Luis Bracamontes, a 37-year-old illegal alien from Mexico who allegedly shot and killed Detective Michael Davis and Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver in October 2017, is featured in the ad, saying in the courtroom during his murder trial that he wished he “had killed more of the motherfuckers.”

“I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me,” the illegal alien said as he smiled in the courtroom, Breitbart News reported. “There’s no need for a fucking trial.”

“It’s pure evil,” the ad says.

The ad goes on to state that Democrats are complicit in illegal alien crime so long as they continue supporting open borders policies like sanctuary cities — which harbor criminal illegal aliens and shield them from deportation — while blocking full funding for a wall on the southern border and legal immigration-cutting reforms to raise the wages of American workers.

“President Trump is right. Build the wall. Deport criminals. Stop illegal immigration now. Democrats who stand in our way will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants,” the ad states as images of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) flash across the screen.

“President Trump will fix our border and keep our families safe,” the ad concludes.

Border Wall Prototypes Thwart US Commandos in Tests Reader 01/19/2018 (Fri) 20:41:01 Id: ed2660 [Preview] No. 5602 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/5204

Recent assaults by tactical teams on prototypes of President Donald Trump’s proposed wall with Mexico indicate their imposing heights should stop border crossers, a U.S. official with direct knowledge of the rigorous assessment told The Associated Press.

Military special forces based in Florida and U.S. Customs and Border Protection special units spent three weeks trying to breach and scale the eight models in San Diego, using jackhammers, saws, torches and other tools and climbing devices, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the information was not authorized for public release.

A Customs and Border Protection report on the tests identifies strengths and flaws of each design but does not pick an overall winner or rank them, though it does point to see-through steel barriers topped by concrete as the best overall design, the official said.

The report recommends combining elements of each, depending on the terrain. The official likened it to a Lego design, pulling pieces from different prototypes.

Carlos Diaz, a spokesman for Customs and Border Protection, said the agency is still in “the testing phase” and that results are being evaluated. He said combining elements of different prototypes instead of picking a winner is consistent with previous statements by officials. He noted that the agency said in its bidding guidelines that a minimum height of 18 feet (5.4 meters) would be a key characteristic. He said he did not have additional details on test results.

Contractors were awarded between $300,000 and $500,000 for each prototype. Prototypes were built last fall to guide future construction of one of Trump’s signature campaign pledges. Four were concrete and four were made of other materials.

Ronald Vitiello, the agency’s acting deputy commissioner, said after visiting the prototypes in October that he was struck most by the 30-foot (9.1-meter) heights, which are significantly higher than existing barriers. Taller barriers are undoubtedly more effective, but whether the cost is justified will be up for debate.

The highly trained testers scaled 16 to 20 feet (4.9 to 6.1 meters) unassisted but needed help after that, said the official who described the assaults on the wall prototypes to the AP. Testers also expressed safety concerns about getting down from 30 feet.

In many articles posted regarding this wall, you would realize that the doundations are deeply embedded into the ground, to prevent people from easily tunneling under.

Sure, if some State-run organization or kingpin mafia wanted to take a truck load of C4 and start blowing massive holes deep into the ground they may be able to pull it off. However, with the right amount of border patrol they would catch on quickly. Especially if there were censors being used alongside the walls for detection (censoring tech is very cheap to the government, typically subsidized as well).

And parachutists? You have got to be kidding me. How many Mexicans have enough money to afford to rent aviation and parachute themselves over the fucking wall!? Are you out of your mind!?

For the little bit of construction I've done, the mexicans (on average) always work less hard than the whites, and their work (again on average) is always lower quality, so I'm more confident in the wall than I am not confident in it. Time will tell, and it's better than the joke of a fence we had before.

Silver As A Strategic Metal and Why Prices Will Soar Reader 01/20/2018 (Sat) 22:36:45 Id: d268fb [Preview] No. 5640 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The arguments in favor of silver as an investment asset are growing rapidly. In the opinion of the Jackass website, silver is the most under-valued hard asset in existence, with the highest potential for price appreciation on the globe. To begin with, central banks own no silver, but do own huge tracts of gold. Industry has huge demand for silver, but a trifling amount for gold demand. The investment demand is another key factor in favor of silver, but also for gold. Ever since the tech telecom bust in 2000, the precious metals growth curve has been evident. Ever since the subprime bond disaster in 2007, followed by the Lehman strangulation in 2008, the precious metals growth curve has continued. It is suppressed like holding back a team of six stagecoach Clydesdale horses by simple leather straps held by mere men with computers on their backs. Ever since the QE inflation policy of monetizing the USGovt debt, the monetary role of Gold & Silver has never been more acute in modern history. But silver offers much more.

Monetary Abuse

Since 2012 with the African style monetary policy, also shared at times by South American nations, the US Federal Reserve has been forced to succumb to hyper monetary inflation of the unsterilized variety. It is the most dangerous form of monetary policy to adopt, a sign of utter desperation. With the desperation has come astonishing price capping of the precious metals market, while at the same time reliance upon isolated wars to steal central bank gold at vaults of defenseless nations. The effect upon economies, hardly ever spoken of by the devoted lapdog financial press, replete with their drone message of a fake sluggish recovery, is for profound capital destruction after seven full years of liquidity spew. The economic stimulus will find even more monetary abuse from greater deficit spending, thus more motive to own precious metals. To be sure, the QE bond purchase initiative is kept within the financial sector for service to the banker masters who have captured the USGovt. This is self-dealing on its face. However, hyper monetary inflation always causes capital ruin in an assured sequence, which cannot be averted, even by Fascist Business Model dictums and propaganda.

The response to monetary abuse has always been a return to honest money and viable sound monetary systems. This time will be no different, in its return to Gold & Silver as foundation, except that the movement will come from the East, led by a global insurrection. The West can join the strong sturdy secure movement, or be left behind. Even England recognizes the shift in global winds, eager to build the RMB Trading Hub in London. The Chinese are leading the global reform movement, and are likely to encourage the growth of the German RMB Hub in Frankfurt. The Germans have significantly more trade with Russia & China than the fascist core in London Centre, offering excellent leading edge product lines and world class engineering which the British cannot ever match.

There is more reason than ever to believe China is ready to move forward with its long-planned goal of establishing a new monetary system centered on Gold and downplaying the USDollar. The point of inflection is at hand. Gold has made a bottom, and as China pursues its Petro/Yuan/Gold plans, Gold will start to fly. I would give odds on new highs by 2020 and on five digits before 2030.”

A Hat Trick Letter client, preferring to remain anonymous in today’s dangerous world where whistleblower efforts to expose corrupt leadership are labeled as espionage, offered the following excellent perspective. Goldman put out a gold positive article recently, but they are missing a very important point. In debate, is the real price of gold today, with all manipulative pressures from central banks and speculators aside. Goldman does not address the fact that the global gold market, including the LBMA, where over 95% of the trading is in unallocated paper gold. It constitutes a fractional reserve system, in which the ratio of paper claims to actual physical bullion was estimated by the Reserve Bank of India at 92 to 1. Such a ratio of paper gold to physical bullion means there is 92 times as many paper contracts outstanding as there is physical gold to cover them. If such manipulative speculation were eliminated, and these speculators forced to cover, the gold price would be free shoot upwards of 92 times in value. That would make gold close to $120,000 per ounce today! Just a thought. Continue on the base end. The USD-based money supply has risen 5-fold since 2009, given the major central bank monetary expansion without restraint. Use the gold price at that time for the calculation. Therefore napkin math means $1300 x 5 = $6500 per oz gold. Just a rough very conservative baseline. Establish the center by considering a roughly $60 trillion total USGovt debt liability, perhaps 30 times the current money stock. That would indicate a $30,000 gold price. Much higher gold prices are coming, along with silver. So many critical energy applications will rely upon silver, that it might be taken off the market for strategic purposes. Its price could be set well over $200 per oz.

U.S. Lost Control Of Silver Market

The United States is fast losing control of the silver market, from a production standpoint. The US is a minor silver producer, yielding to Mexico. The US has yet another example of the paper tail wagging the dog, but where the US is no longer a major player in the silver global output. Control is shifting elsewhere, to its producers, and to precious metal advocates. A little more than a century ago, the United States was the largest silver producer in the world. In 1915, the US produced 75 million oz (Moz) of silver out of the total 189 Moz mined in the world that year. The US had produced 40% of all world silver production, a giant in the sector. Mexico came in second that year by producing 39.3 Moz. In the last century, the US output in silver has been cut in half. The US silver production in 2017 will only be 34 Moz versus the estimated 870 Moz globally. The leading silver producing nation is Mexico, whose annual output has moved from 165 Moz three years ago to an expected 200 Moz by year 2020. Thus, US silver production only accounts for 4% of world mine supply versus 40% back in 1915. The US cannot control the price against world market pressures.

Lastly, the United States imports approximately 22% of world silver mine production each year, a total of 193 Moz of the total 870 Moz in 2017. While domestic mine supply is only 34 Moz, the United States has to import more than a fifth of global mine production to meet its silver market demand. Again, the US cannot control the silver price against world market pressures. See the SRS Rocco research site for an abundance of his excellent analysis (HERE). His work is regularly featured on the Hat Trick Letter. His most recent work is on the Eastern accumulation of precious metals, while the United States flows into the stock and crypto markets, like deceived sheep. The solution to the unresolved financial crisis is hard assets, not yet more fiat substitutes. Any competent silver research should include his work. SRS Rocco has done significant analytic work on the crude oil and shale sector also, bringing reliance to the EROI concept of energy return on investment. It has recently turned negative, thus unproductive.

The Scrap Silver Indicator

Scrap silver has vanished, a great indicator at the margin in this highly important market. Industrial demand has been relentless, enduring, and constant. It has drained the USGovt silver stockpile, reported to once being six billion ounces silver, acquired by US President Teddy Roosevelt. He had vision, and recognized real money and commerce. He built the strategic stockpile for both monetary and military purposes. He acquired and had built the Panama Canal. Today’s presidents are fully committed to predatory wars, fascist political structures, narcotics trafficking, currency pegs, banker privilege, and bond fraud. When the United States and other countries stopped producing official silver coinage, it was not due to any monetary conspiracy. Rather it was based on a straightforward problem framed in terms of Supply vs Demand. Because industrial silver consumption had skyrocketed after World War II, the silver market would have suffered deficits if the USTreasury did not sell silver into the market. A silver shortage was acutely evident, which made clear its strategic importance. In response, governments started to reduce, then to eliminate silver from their coinage in the 1960’s. Much of this silver, known as junk silver, was either purchased by investors or re-melted and sold back as supply into the market as bars. The majority of it was recycled for much-needed supply, while junk silver supplies have been fast vanishing. One can easily see the dwindling down of government stocks and older official silver coinage in the following chart. The margin of the silver supply is disappearing, thus creating an exacerbated silver shortage. The Jackass prefers to reverse the Rocco color scheme in his excellent chart. Notice the absent blue bar component since 2013, from no more official silver sales. The USGovt is heralding a severe silver shortage.

In 2007, total Official Silver Coin sales only totaled 45 million ounces (Moz), but this number surged to 135 Moz in 2015. From 2007 to 2017f (f = forecast), Official Silver Coin sales totaled 1045 Moz (over 1 billion oz). If the official coins sold since 2000 were included, the grand total would be nearly 1.3 billion oz. The key fact to take away concerning the 1.3 billion oz of Official Silver Coin sales is that this investor inventory will likely never be recycled as scrap to supply the market. Furthermore, the majority of the 1-oz to 100-oz silver bars will never be recycled as scrap either. While it is true that both official silver coins and bars will be sold back into the market, they will be repurchased by other retail investors. Thus, the majority of silver investment inventory is locked out as a future source of supply for the global fabrication demand. According to the Metals Focus 2015 Report on The Silver Scrap Market, only 3.5% of total scrap supplies in 2015 were from recycled coins. Furthermore, the majority of that scrap coin supply came from older unsold European official silver coins and blanks. Of the total supply of silver scrap in 2015, 55% was from recycled industrial scrap, 17% from Silverware, 14% from Photography, and 10.5% from Jewelry. The other implication is that collector edition coins will rise sharply in value.

What is quite interesting is that most silver jewelry is not recycled. The low price of silver jewelry does not motivate holders to haul it down to the pawn shop for cash redemption. For example, only 8% of total silver jewelry demand in 2015 was recycled. However, industrial silver recycling amounted to 18% of total industrial silver consumption in 2015. If recycled silver is included from photographic usage, the total amount increases to 20%. In conclusion, the investor has removed a certain amount of silver from the market. A large percentage (95-97%) will likely never be recycled and used as a future supply for global silver fabrication demand. Therefore, any increase in global silver fabrication in the future will be met by stagnating or falling supply as world mine production continues to decrease while scrap supply remains subdued. See SRS Rocco article (HERE). He is frequently quoted for his superb work on the Hat Trick Letter reports.

Silver Is Unique

For well over a century, scientists have strived to find another metal or another compound to replace silver in many unique applications. It is rare among metals and short in supply. Silver is mined between 9 and 11 times the volume of gold. Certain characteristics include light sensitivity, electrical conductivity, heat conductivity, malleability, contact resistance, and viral resistance. The list is long for its unique applications, like photographic development, electrical circuits, battery storage, jewelry, cutlery, metal alloys & cements, mirrors, industrial powders, and high-powered explosives. More recent applications include infection & burn treatments (biocides), lumber anti-insect treatment, and solar photo-voltaic panels. It seems the rate of new usages far outpaces the decline in photographic usage, as it yields to digital cameras. However, these cameras contain silver also in their internal circuitry.

Notice in the periodic table of the elements, the unique and important column of precious metals. The lightest metal in the special column is Copper (Cu). Each row represents the heavier elements, noted in a higher atomic number. The next heavier metal in the special column is Silver (Ag). The heaviest metal in this truly remarkable column is Gold (Au). All three metals in irreplaceable in their own right. Nothing is better on a cost-effective basis for electrical distribution than copper metal. Nothing is better for numerous applications than silver metal. Nothing is better for the timeless fungible, semi-inert, store of value than gold, used as money for thousands of years.

Next Generation Energy Systems

The storm centered upon silver is coming. Expect the silver market to undergo vast changes, whereby the majority of supply will be removed from the market since too valuable. It will before long be considered of strategic importance by numerous governments. It will be hoarded by nations, kept for energy systems, even weapon systems, and be stored as a national security asset. For instance, the US Cruise missile contains something like 30-31 lbs of silver, required for its guidance system. Stockpiles will be formed with renewed emphasis. New energy next generation systems, coupled with data communications networks, will have silver at their core. They will have silver at the center in almost every display upon rollouts, amidst publicity and national pride for the development. Russia will play a leading role.

As preface, publicity is warranted for a new next generation communication line which is likely to supplant and replace the fiber optic technology which came onto the scene in the 1980 decade with significant volume. Reports have begun to surface, written and otherwise, that silver strands will be capable of passing ten times the bandwidth versus fiber optic. The demand for new global layouts will be in the high tonnage per year. Just as CMOS technology brought about a quantum leap in chip processing speeds for computers, the silver strand will bring about a quantum leap in transmission speeds. The hunger for bandwidth will not cease, given the 4G demands with streaming.

Next comes the revelations and publicity of silver for its unique scientific properties, within the new energy production systems. Refer to electric fields, its lone isotope, harmonic frequencies, super conductivity, and associated electricity production. Gold has no known isotopes, but silver has one, a lone isotope which makes it extremely valuable. Expect next the introduction of implosion technology and single point energy output. Field energy through monotonic coating has become highly useful. Electro-harmonic frequencies have been converted to missing electrons, much like an osmotic membrane. The result is an electric field that vectors out, thus producing a flow of electrons (electricity). The energy is produced from a uniquely formed field. Silver can produce a highly efficient level of super conductivity, not necessarily with accompanied cold temperatures. Silver can produce similar electric output from its gaseous form. The super conductivity is associated with anti-gravity systems. Expect it to be combined with electric field-based propulsion systems. Bear in mind that World War II was used to keep some of this special energy technology protected, where many governments still today keep their science secretive. This trend is changing amidst certain accords, led by the Russian scientific community. Silver can be applied in a great many ways, and can be implemented in a broad variety of applications. The future next generation energy systems will have a common ingredient: silver. Please forgive the Jackass in the above explanations. They are being learned on the go by a person with basic broad scientific knowledge, while my specialty is mathematics, statistics, computing, along with finance and economics, not to mention Victoria Secret.


Evil Pope Is Now Openly Attacking Child Sexual Abuse Victims Reader 01/20/2018 (Sat) 16:03:44 Id: ea638c [Preview] No. 5622 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Pope Francis is now attacking the credibility of child sex abuse victims in a shocking move made at the end of a trip to Chile in which he had hoped to “heal” the wounds of said abuse.

That’s right, Pope Francis ended his trip by publicly defending a bishop who victims have accused of covering up widespread pedophilia in the country.

According to a report by the Associated Press, Francis made the shocking comments in a discussion about Rev. Fernando Karadima who has been found guilty of sexually abusing a slew of minors as a member of the Catholic Church.

Pope Francis accused victims of Chile’s most notorious pedophile of slander Thursday, an astonishing end to a visit meant to help heal the wounds of a sex abuse scandal that has cost the Catholic Church its credibility in the country.

Francis said that until he sees proof that Bishop Juan Barros was complicit in covering up the sex crimes of the Rev. Fernando Karadima, such accusations against Barros are “all calumny.”

The pope’s remarks drew shock from Chileans and immediate rebuke from victims and their advocates. They noted the accusers were deemed credible enough by the Vatican that it sentenced Karadima to a lifetime of “penance and prayer” for his crimes in 2011. A Chilean judge also found the victims to be credible, saying that while she had to drop criminal charges against Karadima because too much time had passed, proof of his crimes wasn’t lacking.


The Karadima scandal dominated Francis’ visit to Chile and the overall issue of sex abuse and church cover-up was likely to factor into his three-day trip to Peru that began late Thursday.

Karadima’s victims reported to church authorities as early as 2002 that he would kiss and fondle them in the swank Santiago parish he ran, but officials refused to believe them. Only when the victims went public with their accusations in 2010 did the Vatican launch an investigation that led to Karadima being removed from ministry.

Jesuits are covertly Satanists, they won't admit it publicly but they sacrifice children, drink blood and have blasphemous orgies in secret as a ritual to the devil. There are many different types of Jews, but some of the old extremist pagan types (like the Sabbateans Jews) do the same thing to simply mock Jesus Christ as they view him as a false prophet.

Israel Building New Underground Wall Along Gaza Strip To Prevent Palestinian Tunnel Digging Reader 01/20/2018 (Sat) 18:52:08 Id: f5bf43 [Preview] No. 5631 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Israeli army on Thursday revealed details of a massive underground barrier being built along the border with the Gaza Strip in a bid to neutralise the threat of Palestinian attack tunnels.

Eventually stretching some 65 kilometres (41 miles), the concrete wall will be accompanied by motion sensors designed to detect tunnel digging and is expected to be completed by mid-2019.

The project had been previously announced, but details of its construction had been kept secret until Thursday, when journalists were allowed to view aspects of it.

The details were unveiled days after the army destroyed what it described as a tunnel intended for attacks stretching from the blockaded Palestinian enclave into Israel and eventually Egypt, at least the third uncovered and demolished in less than three months.

Tunnels were among Hamas's most effective tools during the 2014 war with Israel, with militants using them to enter the Jewish state, carry out attacks and at times even return to Gaza through the underground passages.

How deep?

I don't know yet, but according to another report there will also be 30' fencing all along the same border right above the underground wall. 30' is not bad, should keep most out (if not all if razor wired).

"Israeli officials refused to say how deep the wall would go but it is believed to be up to 100 meters below ground in some places."


I'm kinda jealous of those kikes right now.
