ICK! ABC has super loud commercials. ;-(
I kind of like KTLA 5 live on LiveStream
NO Commercials or other junk, just a straight feed that can re-wind with replays when not on-air.
KCAL 9 / CBS 2 is pretty good too... (click around the page to get the other station)
Alasdair Macleod nails it again. A good one to share with the uninformed masses.
Crime of the Century
The Truth About Naked Short Selling in Juniors
by Jim Puplava
On March 31, 2007 I had the opportunity to interview Dr. Patrick M. Byrne, Chairman and CEO of Overstock.com on Financial Sense Newshour [FSN]. Dr. Byrne was interviewed by Bloomberg News' Michael Schneider on March 14, 2007, the transcript of this interview titled 'Phantom Shares,' Failed Trades and Naked Shorts (Transcript) is still available on Bloomberg.com. This interview, coupled with Dr. Byrne's explosive slide presentation of the not-so-hidden corruption in our financial markets called, The Dark Side of the Looking Glass: the Corruption of Our Financial Markets, motivated me to do my own investigation.
In my FSN Annual Year End Review for 2007, Part 1, I briefly touched the significance of my interview with Patrick Byrne. Since then and throughout 2008, I have personally witnessed this abhorrent and perverse action in junior mining shares. I am so appalled by this rampant abuse, that I began a series on Financial Sense Newshour's "The Big Picture" to expose this "Crime of the Century" [COTC] to our listeners.
The quote "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing" is often attributed to Edmund Burke. It is my fervent belief that Financial Sense visitors are identified as good men and women, who search for uncommon truth in their quest to become wise investors. In this regard, Financial Sense hopes to provide accurate information in this series so that we all can do something to stand against this evil practice of naked short selling.
Will the ability to short BTC on a paper market like the CME and CBOE crash bitcoin?
I highly doubt it! At least not at first.
There's just too much money to be made on the swings up and the swings down on the most volatile asset in the world today. Especially when the CFTC doesn't enforce position limits for large (bank?) entities.
And what about "Spoofy"? Will these "wash sales" on unregulated bitcoin exchanges continue? Who's behind it?
While I have no doubt that those entities with size and evil intent can bring down bitcoin or run the price in whatever direction they want, the question is "what is there intent"?
Brainwash us all into DIGITAL CURRENCIES and NO MORE CASH? Is the new bitcoin/cryptocurrency/digi-cash craze just another set of handcuffs for the proletariat?
RT @JamesGRickards The whales dumped some, but not all of the bitcoin to go. Next: 1. Whales ramp price back up to $18k+ w/wash sales. 2. HODLers chant in unison, "I told you so." 3. New suckers drawn in.. 4. Whales short futures, dump bitcoin on exchanges, price tanks again.

Chinese leadership and their military might not be as stable as many believe as revealed in this article about a possible coup against Xi Jinping. Adds a bit more color to Dr. Janda's comments recently with Greg Hunger concerning the Hawaii missile alert.
The abrupt dismissal triggered whispers that there had been a coup attempt within the military that involved Fang and fellow Central Military Commission member Gen. Zang Yang. Zhang, the 66-year old former director of the Political Work Department, was placed under investigation for discipline violations and bribery on Aug. 28. On Nov. 23, he hanged himself while under house arrest.
The suicide added fuel to the speculations of a failed coup against Xi.
The second significant development was a news report in Hong Kong's Sing Tao Daily that said Fang's boss Fan Changlong, 70, the incumbent vice chairman of the Central Military Commission, also has been under investigation by the military's discipline inspection unit since the end of December.

Some interesting reporting on this Israeli F-16 downing.
and a video from Elijah Magnier
and ZeroHedge's take on the event. Their headline of "Major Escalation" was an early call and probably overblown.
