Turd for Nobel Prize in 2013

Fri, Oct 12, 2012 - 11:31am

I mean, why not? Plus, I could use the cash!

First, Al Freaking Gore wins the Peace Prize for...what exactly? And then O'Bottom wins it...why again did he win it? And now, the sanctimonious Nobel Committee awards the Peace Prize to...The European Union? WTF?!? Don't you have to be an individual to win? Is this what Alfred Nobel intended? "Let's just reward and congratulate ourselves on being such wonderful and peaceful bureaucrats!". Seriously? Seriously. Oh well, the EU does need the cash. So, the campaign starts today. Screw the presidency, I want The Prize!



One group definitely NOT deserving of any prize is The Evil Empire and their willing accomplices at the Comex. We've now had to endure Comex-opening beatdowns on 8 of the last 10 days. This is unbelievable and unprecedented. I don't think I've ever printed so many 1-minute charts and, frankly, I'm sick of it. Here are just a few:

And here are the "bloody gloves" from today's crime scene:

If I sound frustrated, it's because I am. These Comex games are enough to drive you to drink. We here know that physical metal is your only financial protection and investors worldwide are fast coming to the same conclusion. Regardless, the phony-baloney Comex paper price is still manipulated for the benefit of a select few. Whatever. Screw 'em. They'll get their comeuppance soon enough.

In the bigger picture on the longer-term charts, you can clearly see that they are making very little, actual progress. In fact, the shorts appear to be playing a losing game here. EVERY attempt to jab price lower is being met with stiff demand, not further selling. EVENTUALLY (soon), longs will be emboldened and, once some resistance levels are breached, the recent shorts will be forced to cover.

For now, keep your eye on $33.60 silver as this level has been attacked repeatedly this week and has held each time. Should a rally develop later today or early next week, our target remains $34.35. As, above there, shorts will begin to get squeezed and face capitulation.

And gold is looking to put in a "bowl" or "cup" shaped bottom on these charts. I'm always fascinated by these patterns when they come together as, when they work out, they almost seem predesigned and predestined.

Just two bits of reading today. First, Detlev Schlichter has penned another beauty: https://detlevschlichter.com/2012/10/we-are-on-the-road-to-serfdom

And our pal, Paul Mylchreest, has written up another lengthy report. Great stuff, as usual, and he was even kind enough to include a reference to some of our work here.


OK, that's all for now. Please check back later as I will try to post some thoughts on the CoT when it's released. It should be somewhat interesting as OI declined over the survey week and we'll get some idea of just who was selling/covering.

Have a great day!

Currency Report: Required by law/ Delayed due to election?

U.S. Treasury delays currency report until at least November

WASHINGTON | Fri Oct 12, 2012 5:12pm EDT

WASHINGTON Oct 12 (Reuters) - The U.S. Treasury said on Friday it will delay a semi-annual currency report to Congress until after a finance meeting in early November.

The report that examines the foreign exchange practices of major U.S. trading partners such as China and Japanis required by law to be released Oct. 15 and April 15 but is often delayed.

The group of 20 finance minister meeting takes place just ahead of the U.S. presidential election on Nov. 6.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has blasted President Barack Obama for being soft on China and has vowed to label China a currency manipulator should he win the presidency.

The Treasury said it was delaying the report in order to "assess progress following the G-20" finance ministers meeting Nov. 4-5.

Chinese ETF's?

Time To Consider Chinese Yuan ETFs? (CYB, CNY, FXCH)

October 12th, 2012

Eric Dutram: Although the Chinese economy appears to be weakening as we head into the final part of the year, one segment of their nation appears to be holding up quite well, the yuan. This currency strength comes in the face of sagging growth in the most populous nation on earth and ongoing worries over inflation, credit bubbles, and central bank decisions.

Nevertheless, the yuan recently rose to the 6.28 mark against the dollar, the first time in nearly 20 years that the currency has breached the level. Clearly, even despite the issues plaguing the Chinese economy, investors remain at least somewhat bullish on the currency, at least in the near term.

This could be especially true given the new level of uncertainty surrounding the American presidential election. Romney has pledged to be more aggressive with China and their currency policies, and with his recent momentum, China could be looking to allow the yuan to edge higher against the dollar in order to quell some U.S. opposition over Chinese trade practices.

After all, a stronger yuan makes it more difficult to label the nation as a currency manipulator, while the increase could help American exports to the PROC as well. Still, some are predicting that we could see a slight decline after the American election, although the trend of the yuan has been definitely higher, a situation that could also assist in rebalancing China’s economy more evenly between exports and international consumption (see China Currency ETFs: Slow and Steady Growth in 2012?).

Given this trend, investors may consider yuan investments a lower risk choice at this time, especially if China continues to allow the currency to appreciate modestly against the dollar. However, it is worth noting that even with the increase in value of the yuan against the dollar that the currency has only added about 0.3% so far this year, although it has appreciated roughly 32% since mid-2005 (read If China Slumps, Avoid These Three Country ETFs).

With this backdrop, investors seeking alternative currency exposure—outside of the dollar—may be well-served by taking a closer look at yuan-based investments. While Chinese stocks are arguably too risky at this time, Chinese yuan ETFs could be a low risk choice that seems poised to benefit in the near term—and over the long term—as the country tried to rebalance its economy and avoid a bigger trade scuffle with the U.S.

For these investors looking for some diversification into China without much of the risk, any of the following China yuan ETFs could.....

Inflation, deflation and gold price

Gold price is not related to inflation but to money supply and thus, directly to the USA debt- basis for almost all world fiat money.

Thus QE, buying of treasuries directly by FED, increases money supply and gold price while does not enter real economy directly but via e.g China in a slow circle and inflationary effects in the USA is dampened by recessionary economy-lack of demand - with increasing price competition ;


Inflation is gold negative because that is the risk that may hold Feds QE unlimited policy within weak money supply emission frame

Deflation is gold positive as it opens all doors to money supply from Fed via QE.

The only deflation which could be gold negative will be deflation caused by FED sucking back QE, which may happen at the day of reset in 2016 or so. Interest rate increase caused deflation is unimaginable with the amount of debt the USA and Americans are still holding.

So the first step to deflation will be USG defaulting on FED and FED sucking back proportional amount of QE. In principle , when the time comes( when inflation starts to get threatening to USA ratings, population attitude, raise of non-establishment political forces) , USG can default on all FED owned debt selectively , and FED can suck back all QE reserves from Banks, or, their equivalent in gold which banks will obviously start holding as cash equivalent since BASEL III from January 2013.

USG defaulting selectively on FED will not cause treasuries owned by others loose value if that action will be properly communicated and supported by necessary laws and regulations.

However, it will end the gold bubble by giving value back to USD. To keep it, it will be necessary to back all worlds USD with gold.

That means much more gold than in FEDs disposition. In principle, every country, CB, bank having USD denominated digits will be forced to back them by certain amount of gold, under the control of CBs and BIS, and thus will create distributed gold holdings supporting new gold standard of the USD. The value of such gold in USD terms will be clearly below the peak value of gold before QE will be sucked back.

A worldwide deflationary recession worth the 70 year bubble created by USD as world reserve currency combined with easy money policy will ensue, and last long enough to change the political regimes all over world, including the USA, to more totalitarian ones ( even in China, or Russia).

US Fiscal Cliff: Economic Neutron Bomb

It's a well known and widely held belief that if the U.S. economy tanks the rest of the world tanks even worse albeit a bit delayed. That's what we're seeing now with the EU contagion from the still unresolved and evolving U.S. crisis since 2008/09.

To the extent that the U.S. political will is lacking because of the upcoming presidential election or they simply have no clue, it's occurred to me that it might all be by design in some manner as the debt loads of most countries are at a tipping point and only need a small nudge or the event that is called a 'Fiscal Cliff' to take place. I believe it will take place in 2013 with no attempt to prevent it.

But who would get hurt the most from the U.S. economy tanking (again) and us falling off of that cliff?

It would seem that the U.S. would obviously be weakened by it but at this point and after watching countless bailouts, Twists and QE's etc. of all different sorts it appears that many other countries abroad are getting hurt by the U.S. economies condition more so. The exported inflation abroad seems to be more magnified then the conditions the U.S. is operating under. The overall fat that can still be trimmed in the U.S. is much greater then the lean situations that seem to prevalent elsewhere. Many countries abroad are just barely keeping their heads above water and are close to economic anorexia.

Simply put, the U.S. has more of a cushion in overall wealth, living conditions, food availability then many other people from around the world in the event they had to weather a severe and prolonged downturn in the global economy. For example, I believe that approx 50% of the people in China live on approx $2.00 a day in earnings. Yes...$2.00!

Imagine how a severe global depression would impact China and other rival countries (everyone is a rival) if the U.S. fell off off or simply refused to even consider to prevent itself from hitting that fiscal cliff. The effect would hurt U.S. rivals and weaken them considerably more then it would hurt us. Having secured ourselves as the biggest debtor nation and having stuck everyone else with the bill (UST bills to be exact) that they happily bought up for decades the U.S. finds itself in the twisted yet logical position (if your a central banker of the reserve currency) of being overall TBTF at the expense of everyone else. It pretty much puts us in the drivers seat for even longer because most countries do not want to experience the pain of the worlds largest consumer being taken away from the export/import feeding trough that is still keeping the entire planets economy moving albeit at a slower growth rate recently.

The neutron bomb called the 'fiscal cliff' is one that the U.S. knows it has in it's arsenal. But it might not be a tool to fix our economy but more of a device to greatly weaken all others as we ourselves weaken.

The strongest of a weak lot is still the strongest (especially with a huge global military) and as we are seeing now during this monetary policy/currency war it doesn't really matter how weak we get as long as everyone weakens at the same pace (or greater) while were still atop of it all in the end with the reserve currency.

Is it possible that the dreaded fiscal cliff is one that the US political hiearchy doesn't dread (might actually want to see happen) so they can watch most of their adversaries fall off of it farther and harder then we might experience ourselves relative to all others? Isn't that what we're seeing the last 4 years as that cliff has already been fallen off of because at the moment we are in a free fall and waiting to hit the ground and bottom out.

What I see is that while the U.S. does a slow header off their own fiscal cliff is that the plunge is already underway and that many other countries are on the verge of imploding that weren't so before 2008/09. They're plunging faster then we even though it started here first and they're about to hit bottom while we're still talking about if or when our 'cliff fall' happens.

Like a neutron bomb, we'll be left standing in relatively good shape (compared to others) while the unseen damage happens more so abroad with far greater consequences. A U.S. economic collapse isn't in our best interest and it'll suck, but you have to consider how much more so it will for everyone else abroad.

I don't think any of that is lost on the U.S., the Federal Reserve or the Pentagon.

There's beats mine

The US Fiscal 'Moment': Cliff, Slope, Or Wile E. Coyote?

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 10/13/2012 - 15:46

The overhwelming majority of investors seem to believe that some compromise will be reached to resolve the looming fiscal drag, and as we noted here, this fact is more than priced into markets. As Barclays notes however, a big deal that encompasses entitlement and tax reform is very unlikely before year-end. Hence, if the ‘cliff’ is avoided, it will be because Congress extends all expiring provisions for some time while it works on a bigger deal. Such an 'extension/compromise' move would not reduce investor uncertainty if it were only for a few months; bond markets would simply start counting down to the new date. More importantly, the discussion about the fiscal cliff misses a broader point: the US will probably have significant fiscal tightening over the next decade that is a drag on medium-term growth. Yet more investors dismiss last year's reaction to the debt-ceiling debate - a 17% decline in 2 weeks - as any kind of precedent, claiming (falsely) that this was more due to European financial difficulties. We expect fiscal issues to be the defining drivers of the next several quarters and as BofAML notes, Washington's view of this 'process' as a 'slope' combined with the dangerously negative election campaign (which will need a 180-degree reversal for any compromise) means the likelihood of a Wile E. Coyote Moment is considerably higher than most expect.

https://www.myspace.com/tom_heneghan_intel/blog Tom Heneghan explosive intelligence briefings ALL patriot Americans MUST know, with sources inside American/European intelligence agencies and INTERPOL, reporting what is really going on behind the scenes of the corporate-controlled, fascist, extortion-friendly propaganda U.S. media's massive deceptions

Tuesday October 9, 2012 IMF Issues Direct Communique
by Tom Heneghan
International Intelligence Expert

UNITED States of America - It can now be reported that IMF President Christine Lagarde directly communicated with alleged President Barack Hussein Obama-Soetoro, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Federal Reserve Chairman Bernard Bernanke and told them to follow the rule of law and implement the U.S. side of the Wanta-Reagan-Mitterrand Protocols and do it NOW!

Chief Justice John Glover Roberts, Jr.
Chief Justice, U.S. Supreme Court
Note: Lagarde now has full support, on U.S. soil, from the U.S. Marshal Service, the U.S. Inspector General, the U.S. Comptroller of the Currency, along with U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

The Protocols represent a total of $4.5 TRILLION, including 1.5 TRILLION due the U.S. Treasury (hello IRS).

Check Kiter Timothy Geithner
AFP Photo / Alex Wong P.S. U.S. Treasury Secretary and check kiter, Timothy Geithner, threw a temper tantrum after talking to Lagarde. Geithner's temper tantrum comes on the heels of the Number 3 official at the top of the U.S. Treasury being forced to resign after being fingered for aiding Bank of America of Charlotte, North Carolina in the purchase of illegal patents and using co-mingled Wanta-Reagan-Mitterrand Protocol funds to complete the purchase.

Item: This co-mingling of funds included the $18 billion stolen from Ambassador Leo Wanta by the rogue state of Wisconsin and its Bush-Clinton Crime Family stooge Governor Tommy Thompson.

Reference: The AmeriTrust account and the Children's Defense Fund.

P.P.S. At this hour, the IMF, and now the Comptroller of the Currency, continue to order massive redemption and repatriation of collateralized assets aka precious and industrial metals, along with oil and natural gas holdings, as Wanta-Reagan-Mitterrand Protocol implementation continues in Europe at full speed with draw down accounts ready to be implemented with ECB President Mario Draghi now looking for a job from none other than check kiter Timothy Geithner.

It was interesting today that Bloomberg News, aka crooked bank Federal Reserve's news, put out a story about reducing the U.S. budget deficit by $4 trillion and referenced secret negotiations that are taking place in the U.S. Congress.

Message to Bloomberg News: The Wanta-Reagan-Mitterrand Protocols represent $4.5 TRILLION, so the question occurs: Is Bloomberg News and Timothy Geithner trying to get a $500 billion commission?

Bloomberg News also put out more disinformation and propaganda when they stated that the IMF wanted lower interest rates in Europe.

This Communique came from the Washington-based IMF, which has 35% minority controlling interest in the IMF, and actually represents the U.S. Treasury and check kiter Timothy Geithner.

65% of the IMF's controlling interest remains in Europe where the rule of law is being followed and the Protocols are being implemented.

P.P.P.S. Stay tuned for future intelligence briefings, which will include an update on the corrupt financial regulators: the SEC, the NFA and the CFTC in ignoring massive insider trading done by corrupt and crooked U.S. banks reference: JPMorgan Chase, Citibank, Goldman Sachs and Bank of America on behalf of crooked politicians and U.S. media big shots like Anderson Cooper of CNN, Wolf Blitzer of CNN, Chrissy Pooh Matthews of MSNBC and both Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity of FOX News.

These little, overpaid multi-millionaire media punks were given heads up on IPOs by the aforementioned corrupt banks and, accordingly, made millions in profits.

These corrupt financial regulators continue to try to frame the little fish to enrich the big fish.

Finally, remember, the corrupt, fascist, extortion-friendly U.S. media filth are completely controlled and subsidized by the corrupt banking interests.

That is why election 2012 has "bank dick Obama" running against "bank dick Romney".

The Crucial Issue of This Election

The Crucial Issue of This Election

The Crucial Issue of This Election

Gary North

Gary North's Reality Check (Oct. 12, 2012)

We are told that this Presidential election is the most important in 50 years. One nationally prominent Christian Right columnist has written that this is the most important Presidential election in the history of the United States.

How could anyone know if this is the most crucial election? You might think that it would be possible to assess this by looking at the #1 issue of this election, and then compare it with the #1 issue that some previous election settled. Unfortunately, this is not possible. It is not possible for two reasons. First, we do not know the future. Second, because Presidential elections are never fought over a crucial dividing issue that proves to have been divisive after the election is settled.

Here is a list of crucial issues in American political life today. Which of these is central to the campaign?

End legalized abortion
End the war in Afghanistan
End the FED
End the war on drugs
End executive orders
End the Department of Homeland Security
The unfunded liabilities of Medicare
The unfunded liabilities of Social Security
Audit the government's gold's ownership
Balance the federal budget before 2016

These are major issues. They should be publicly addressed. They are so far under the rug that the mainstream media are oblivious to them. Obama is staying silent, and the mainstream media prefer that he get away with this. Think "closing Guantanamo." Think "climate change."

This is the way that every Presidential race is always conducted. Does this seem like a preposterous statement? Probably. Is it an accurate statement? Let me state my case.

The most important Presidential election in American history was held in 1860, when the former Mary Todd's two suitors, Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas, lawyers for the Illinois Central Railroad, squared off for the second time, the first being the office of U.S. Senate in 1858. The outcome led to the secession of most Southern states before Lincoln was inaugurated. The death toll of the Civil War has recently been increased from an admitted 630,000 to about 700,000. It is clear that no other election ever produced anything like that.

What was the dividing judicial issue of the election of 1860? That is, what judicial issue was the crucial one that the election would surely settle, which President Buchanan's administration had not settled, over which the political battle was fought?

Answer: the one which both candidates denied was an issue. Abolition.

Either Lincoln or Douglas would win. John C. Breckenridge, Buchanan's Vice President, was also running as a third party candidate, because the South's Democrats could not stand Douglas' position on the right of voters within a proposed state to decide whether to enter as a slave state or a free state. Douglas promoted "popular sovereignty," and the geography of all the new states made it clear that there would be no new slave states. The South would be outvoted at some point, and slavery would be repealed.

You can see this on any map: what is now Edgewood, Texas, 50 miles east of Dallas. West of Edgewood, a slave owner would have had to give a slave a horse to herd cattle. The piny woods grew thin, because the soil grew thin. There would be no cotton west of Edgewood. That soil division extends north through Oklahoma and Kansas. Kansas was the wave of the future. It was a free state.

If Lincoln won, he would make sure that no slave state would enter the Union to balance a non-slave state. He had made this the keystone of his later political career.

Who’s ‘Politicizing’ Benghazi?

By Mark Steyn October 12, 2012 8:00 P.M.

‘The entire reason that this has become the political topic it is is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.”

Thus, Stephanie Cutter, President Obama’s deputy campaign manager, speaking on CNN about an armed attack on the 9/11 anniversary that left a U.S. consulate a smoking ruin and killed four diplomatic staff, including the first American ambassador to be murdered in a third of a century. To discuss this event is apparently to “politicize” it and to distract from the real issues the American people are concerned about. For example, Obama spokesperson Jen Psaki, speaking on board Air Force One on Thursday: “There’s only one candidate in this race who is going to continue to fight for Big Bird and Elmo, and he is riding on this plane.”

She’s right! The United States is the first nation in history whose democracy has evolved to the point where its leader is provided with a wide-body transatlantic jet in order to campaign on the vital issue of public funding for sock puppets. Sure, Caligula put his horse in the senate, but it was a real horse. At Ohio State University, the rapper will.i.am introduced the president by playing the Sesame Street theme tune, which oddly enough seems more apt presidential-walk-on music for the Obama era than “Hail to the Chief.”

Obviously, Miss Cutter is right: A healthy mature democracy should spend its quadrennial election on critical issues like the Republican party’s war on puppets rather than attempting to “politicize” the debate by dragging in stuff like foreign policy, national security, the economy, and other obscure peripheral subjects.

Maybe this is what has Bix

Maybe this is what has Bix all worked up for the coming week, ie what sandiaman was referencing a few posts above, the "Wanta-Reagan-Mitterrand Protocols":

My take is the whole thing sounds very "woo-woo." The writing style comes across like those who purport we are governed by Admiralty Law and if you claim yourself a sovereign you can't be prosecuted, etc.

The short version seems to be there was a $27 Trillion Wanta fund that was supposed to recapitalize the world but the US stole $6.5 trillion and is now being ordered to give it back. The very, very long version is at:


More info at:

https://www.stewwebb.com/ - one of the most bizarre websites I have ever seen, my eyes still hurt. There are 'updates' about the "Protocols" if you scroll down to the Breaking News section for October.

https://www.you tube.com/watch?v=9iFdckbRzbc - I broke the link so it wouldn't embed. I didn't watch the video but the comments are, uh, entertaining.

Be warned that there are things here that make woo-woo look positively conservative and main-stream. One choice piece from the first link above:

Pieces are falling into place

A careful examination of the Internal Currency Review will reveal that former President George H.W. Bush holds "dual citizenship" with Germany, as he is the reputed "head" of the Deutsche Verteidigungs Dienst, the Dachau DVD, or the Abwehr (underground S.S.). Satellite photos confirm that Bush attended a "secret" meeting of the organization, over which he presides, since taking over its leadership from Dr. Henry Kissinger.

It's even on Ron Paul's web site:

This is from 6/6/12 https://www.dailypaul.com/238111/mass-arrests-confirmed-to-be-underway-do-not-be-shocked-when-it-happens


"UNITED STATES of America - It can now be reported that the final implementation of the Wanta-Reagan-Mitterrand Protocols is now only days away.

The implementation of the Protocols will:

1. Absorb worldwide debt

2. Recapitalize banks worldwide, and

3. Create an interest rate equilibrium that is revenue neutral and non-inflationary."


The Global Settlements ARE the final financial trigger for the arrests that will be taking place, taking many of you by shock as all the way along you have believed these things to be false.

You may not be able to deal with the changes easily, and I mean that sincerely because the global settlements are a huge change. You will hear about it on television. They mean bankers will be arrested across the board, period.

It went into extreme detail about it's theory of those that "made it" were all related somehow to the CIA/gov't./military induatrial complex. For example: Jim Morrison's Dad was an Admiral in the Navy, Kris Kristofferson was in the airforce, a few came from the same grade school in D.C., where their fathers were connected to the military/gov't. Interesting, but very thin as far as actrual proof.

@ tyberious

I looked back, and your post below had two hat tips. I was one, and prehaps you were the shameless other. The fact that it recieved only two at this time shows me that Doug is absolutely correct in his speech. We have people on this board discussing the differences between Oboma and Romney, and think what they say makes a difference.

Casey is right, we live with Chimpanzees. And most of them 'think' they are free.

There are a lot of awake people here as well, and it's all a process coming out of the matrix. Those on this site fit into two camps I think. Those that think it can be fixed, and those that are working to fix it.

I'll include those working to fix it as the Paul supporters that have participated in the system. THEY know how corrupt it has become.

Those thinking it's going to be fixed, begging from the system are idiots. They think Forwards are the answer but continue to support their enslavement.

Thanks for the post, it deserved more respect but perhaps this community is not unlike the rest of society. We are a concured people. America is nothing but an idea, and politically, it been sold out.

@ Karankawa

It's group think! I 'm not one to criticize or call people names, but truth be told many here prefer to scapegoat the Democratic party or they have a right leaning ideology. I on the other hand am a pragmatist and realist, they (both parties) have failed us, in that the modern day Republican party is made up Fascist and the Democrat party is made up of Socialist. I believe the evidence speaks for itself, it is only those that choose to be blind, that do not see. It's one great big distraction!

Root for the home team but the owners are out of state, yeah right!

I have and will never hat tip myself. The information and links provided are for us to improve our minds and increase our knowledge, through the grace of others. BTW, most of my balanced political post receive minimal hat tips, where juvenile right leaning cartoons consistently, in my opinion garner way too much approval. I guess I just dont understand how any member of this site, whom I would consider way outside on the norm, not be able look at our political system in a completely unbiased view. If one has come to the conclusion the bankers control the world, or even that the metals markets are manipulated, how far off is total control of the US political system. But, people need a face to blame and that is why we have Jesus!

Ain't it funny.

"If one has come to the conclusion the bankers control the world, or even that the metals markets are manipulated, how far off is total control of the US political system. But, people need a face to blame and that is why we have Jesus!"

The very effort of the reformation produced America. And look at what we have become.

Think there hasn't been an AntiReformation in action since?

Gold Pooping Bacteria

Science has discovered a way to create gold in a laboratory. It's not bullshit. It's bacterium shit. Cupriavidus metallidurans a non-spore forming bacillus.

Gold flecks produced by the art-science experiment “The Great Work of the Metal Lover,” by Adam Brown, MSU associate professor of electronic art and intermedia. Photo by G.L. Kohuth.

It would be cost prohibitive to reproduce their experiment on a larger scale, he said. But the researchers’ success in creating gold raises questions about greed, economy and environmental impact, focusing on the ethics related to science and the engineering of nature.

A Little Election History of Almost 3rd party candidates

the election between Goldwater and Johnson

Dizzy Gillespie Runs for US President, 1964. Promises to Make Miles Davis Head of the CIA

There comes a point in every national election year when I reach total saturation and have to tune it all out to stay sane—the nonstop streams of vitriol, the spectacles of electoral dysfunction, the ads, the ads, the ads. I’m sure I’m not alone in this. But imagine how differently we could feel about presidential elections if people like, I don’t know, Dizzy Gillespie could get on a major ticket? That’s what might have happened in 1964 if “a little-known presidential campaign… had been able to vault the millionaires-only hurdle.” What began as one of Dizzy’s famous practical jokes, and a way to raise money for CORE (Congress for Racial Equality) and other civil rights organizations became something more, a way for Dizzy’s fans to imagine an alternative to the “millionaire’s-only” club represented by Lyndon Johnson and Barry Goldwater. Gillespie’s campaign had “Dizzy Gillespie for President” buttons, now collector’s items, and “Dizzy for President” became the title of an album recorded live at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 1963, from which the recording comes (see right below).

A take on his trademark tune “Salt Peanuts,” “Vote Dizzy” was Gillespie’s official campaign song and includes lyrics like:

Your politics ought to be a groovier thing
Vote Dizzy! Vote Dizzy!
So get a good president who’s willing to swing
Vote Dizzy! Vote Dizzy!

It’s definitely groovier than either one of our current campaigns. Dizzy “believed in civil rights, withdrawing from Vietnam and recognizing communist China,” and he wanted to make Miles Davis head of the CIA, a role I think would have suited Miles perfectly. Although Dizzy’s campaign was something of a publicity stunt for his politics and his persona, it’s not unheard of for popular musicians to run for president in earnest. In 1979, revolutionary Nigerian Afrobeat star Fela Kuti put himself forward as a candidate in his country, but was rejected. More recently, Haitian musician and former Fugee Wyclef Jean attempted a sincere run at the Haitian presidency, but was disqualified for reasons of residency. It’s a little hard to imagine a popular musician mounting a serious presidential campaign in the U.S., but then again, the 80s were dominated by the strange reality of a former actor in the White House, so why not? In any case, revisiting Dizzy Gillespie’s mid-century political theater may provide a needed respite from the onslaught of the current U.S. campaign season.
