Gunman kills self after 2 NYPD cops shot dead ‘execution style’ as ‘revenge’ for Garner

Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s execution-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

Can you create a ripple without a cause?

We've all seen a stone thrown into the water create ripples across the entire pond. And the ripples keep on going across the entire universe.

That is what that whole Beatles song was about, Across the Universe. Jai guru deva om" (जय गुरुदेव ॐ), which roughly translates to: "Glory to the shining remover of darkness!"

Miracles do happen. My neocon dad spent 2 hours watching Ron Paul videos on YouTube.

I have no idea why, but my Dad started watching Ron Paul videos on YouTube yesterday. I was in the living room a few feet away, and imagine my surprise when I heard Ron Paul's appearance on The View playing from Dad's computer speakers. He hates The View, and until yesterday, I was pretty sure he hated Ron Paul because Fox News told my Dad Ron Paul was anti-military (sigh). Just a couple of days ago he was lamenting the millions of GOP voters who stayed home rather than vote for Romney.

Paul Craig Roberts – Russia To Unleash Ultimate Black Swan Against The West

All Russia would have to do Is buy every ounce of silver available. 1 billion ounces of silver is what is available in the world. 1 billion times 16 is 16 billion dollars. Chump change to a government. Russia could swap Gold for silver easily. I think the Russians know the Achilles heel of the western banking system. Now this. http://www.stevequayle.com/index.php?s=33&d=1253

Jim Grant: "The Fed Has A 3rd Mandate... The Administration Of American Equity Prices"

Having recently given us a two paragraph synopsis of all that is wrong with our financial market faith in fed officialdom, Jim Grant unleashes his critical wit and insight on CNBC to explain the Fed's new remit, as Bill Dudley recently explained, "the administration of American equity prices." The Fed will find it difficult to raise rates - both technically (for reasons we have explained in detail previously) and "they will find many blocks in the way having to do with financial markets' reaction." Simply put, the Fed wants to raise rates but mostly it wants peace and quiet, which it does not have: "The Fed is America's central bank but it is the steward of the world's currency," and as Grant concludes, "it is raining currencies around the world... and the Fed must be cognizant of that."

Please Stop Helping Us

Why is it that so many efforts by liberals to lift the black underclass not only fail, but often harm the intended beneficiaries?

In Please Stop Helping Us, Jason L. Riley examines how well-intentioned welfare programs are in fact holding black Americans back. Minimum-wage laws may lift earnings for people who are already employed, but they price a disproportionate number of blacks out of the labor force. Affirmative action in higher education is intended to address past discrimination, but the result is fewer black college graduates than would otherwise exist. And so it goes with everything from soft-on-crime laws, which make black neighborhoods more dangerous, to policies that limit school choice out of a mistaken belief that charter schools and voucher programs harm the traditional public schools that most low-income students attend.
In theory these efforts are intended to help the poor—and poor minorities in particular. In practice they become massive barriers to moving forward.

Ed's daughter was hit by a car

Ed Rombach is a friend, a member of 2008 Massachusetts Ron Paul delegation to the RNC, as well as a member here at the Daily Paul. I got an email yesterday from our mutual friend Jon that his daughter was involved in a horrific car accident. This is the report from Ed.

Ben Carson Chooses Sides: Israel Wins His Allegiance

He has proven that he is among the people who wish to be president at any cost.

"He showed sympathy for Israel's much-maligned settlement movement and questioned the desire among Palestinians for peace."

What an absurd thing to say. There is a lovely video posted here this morning, "The Quiet Revolution" which points out the truth: At our core, most of us want the same thing and peace is very near the top of our lists. To pretend Palestinians do not want peace is to deny their basic humanity. To pretend Israel is not an aggressor is to ignore the boundaries defined in the original treaty that created Israel.

Bought 90oz of silver today

Not trying to brag, just thought I'd let you know, and maybe inspire someone on the fence to act. I'm not looking to flip or "invest". I'm in it long term, like, willing it to the grand kids long term. (I don't have kids yet)

IRS Might Shut Down?

The IRS is considering its own temporary shutdown due to recent budget cuts enacted by Congress, its chief said Thursday.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said furloughs — forced unpaid days off for employees as part of an IRS closure — is one idea reluctantly being tossed about to save money, though they are hoping they will not have to go there.
