In Gold we Trust 2015 –
In the last four days, there have been four Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) which have hit the Earth's magnetic field causing the Northern Lights to appear below the Canadian border in more than 20 U.S. States, and now a fifth CME is on the way, as Sunspot AR2381 erupted again in the early hours Thursday 25 June producing an M 7.9 class solar flare and lopsided CME.
The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory photographed the storm cloud which raced away for the Sun faster than 2000 km/s (4.5 million mph)
This CME will probably sideswipe Earth's magnetic field on this Saturday, 27 June.

"If we look at the July silver contract, there are 55,000 contracts still open with only 4 days remaining before first notice day. This is 275 million ounces still open with only 57 million ounces available to deliver. This is truly fraudulent sales of metal because the metal does not exist to deliver. Yes I know, the apologists will say "this always happens and the shorts will decline into first notice day and evaporate throughout the delivery month". I agree, this "has" always happened in the past but something is changing now. In the past, total open interest always dropped going into FND, now it is not. Not only are all July contracts closed out being rolled into September, the total is rising rather than declining sharply."
"... there is NO market anywhere on the planet where the amounts of futures dwarf the physical product so overwhelmingly than in silver. Why is silver so important? Why has it been bludgeoned so badly and even priced below the cost of production? You must understand how small the silver market is. Total global production is less than $15 billion per year …"but", silver cannot be left alone because high silver prices do not jibe with low gold prices. …And gold MUST be kept down and out of the limelight because high gold prices do not fit with low interest rates …which are an absolute must in an effort of reflation. You see, in no way can interest rates be allowed to rise with the amount of global debt outstanding. Higher interest rates will crush the debt outstanding, the silver market is at the VERY BEGINNING of the "food chain" that keeps the lid on interest rates. I believe the Chinese hold this market in their back pocket paid for with "pocket change", they will use is it at their own discretion!"

Can gay folk get married.... what the heck is politics doing, interfering with folks personal choices?
Folk keeping arguing for and against.... there in lies the trap. Because if gov can get you debating what gov should do then you are voting for gov control. Gov only cares that you bow to their authority.
It laughs at the sheeple.

I am amazed by the political argument:
Homosexuals have lobbyists too and their FIAT bribes and spends just as good as anyone's.

JS Kim: Unsound Money is the Root of All Evil
The effect of money behind the gay right of marraige campaign was pretty clear.
Considering the percentage of the population involved and the size of the campaign the money amount must have been considerable, and more than personal donation might build, but I could be in error about that.
However what about the international synchronization of the campaign and it's breadth across continents? Check the places this campaign was mounted in.
The synchronization of court cases coming to judgment in the week or two prior to voting also shows extremely effective pull from very high places. Given the normal delays of bringing civil cases, and almost complete unpredictability of their time taken when they finally get started, this was organization with substantial power behind it.
All very interesting from the view of seeing and understanding the presence of covert power threads sneaking through what goes for "society".
I'd love to see some investigative journalism done on the origins of money flow applied to obtain such a wide social change. Gay billionaires with international agendas and willing to plonk down a big percentage of their assets for single issues, or what? I assume the legal pull decisions would be quite covert, but a good investigation would also bring up much of interest that both the gay and straight populations are completely unaware.

The Good-Governance Trap
ROME – Development and improved governance have tended to go hand in hand. But, contrary to popular belief, there is little evidence that success in implementing governance reforms leads to more rapid and inclusive economic and social development. In fact, it may be the other way around.
The focus on good governance stems from the struggle to restore sustained growth during the developing-country debt crises of the 1980s. Instead of reassessing the prevailing economic-policy approach, international development institutions took aim at the easy targets: developing-country governments. Advising those governments on how to do their jobs became a new vocation for these institutions, which quickly developed new “technical” approaches to governance reform.
The World Bank, using well over 100 indicators, introduced a composite index of good governance, based on perceptions of voice and accountability, political stability and the absence of violence, government effectiveness, regulatory quality, the rule of law, and levels of corruption. By claiming that it had found a strong correlation between its governance indicators and economic performance, the Bank fueled hope that the key to economic progress had been found.
The case was flawed from the beginning
Eurozone finance ministers on Saturday (27 June) all-but said they expect capital controls to be put in place in Greece, as the country enters a hugely uncertain period.
With the Greek bailout coming to an end on Tuesday, they noted that "without immediate prospects of a follow-up arrangement”, the Greek authorities will have to take measures "to safeguard the stability of the Greek financial system".
They added that the 'institutions' - referring to the European Commission, the European Central Bank (ECB), and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) - would provide "technical assistance".
Saturday’s discussion took place without Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, who left the meeting of "his own account" after his counterparts refused to extend the bailout for a month in order to accommodate a surprise referendum next Sunday.
The referendum plans to ask Greek people if they accept the strings attached to the remaining €7.2 billion of bailout money.
The situation puts both the eurozone and Greece into what one minister called “uncharted territory”.
The most pressing issue is whether there will be a fully fledged bank run in Greece.
Meanwhile, Luxembourg finance minister Pierre Gramegna said that a default does not necessarily mean that Greece will exit the eurozone, with no formal provisions in the EU treaties for a country leaving the euro.
All eyes are now on the ECB, whose emergency liquidity assistance (ELA) programme has been providing financial life-support to Greek banks. The ECB is due to take a decision on whether to continue the programme on Sunday. A decision to turn off the tap would plunge Greek lenders into crisis.
Malta's Edward Scicluna pointed out that the ECB has "unfettered freedom" to use OTM (an as-yet-unused promise to buy government bonds) and quantitive easing.
"We are prepared for this eventuality”, he said.
Greek foreign minister Kotzias tweeted Saturday: "Those cheering about the tricks against Greece in the Eurogroup today shouldn't forget we have a veto at the core of the EU". His comment revives concern Greece could wield its EU Council veto, for instance, on foreign policy, to seek better bailout terms.
