Yesterday the World Gold Council issued their third quarter 2014 gold supply and demand report that showed a 2% decrease in demand year over year and a 7% drop in supply with the volume of recycled gold continuing to shrink.
While gold supply/demand appears to be in balance,(unlike the silver supply demand dynamic which is in deficit) there are many changes on both sides of the equation that threaten to disrupt the seeming peaceful equilibrium.
Several significant developments confirm that we are on the track to exposing the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about Sandy Hook, including new information that appears to expose the motive behind the hoax.
One is that Wolfgang Halbig, the Florida State Trooper, former school principal and national school safety expert was warned that he was “irritating” some powerful people during a 30-minute phone call last Monday, 3 November 2014.
I caught this video while it was being screened for free, it is worth trying to track down a screening. The bottom line: "Organic" certification is no longer enough, you really need to know your farmer. Better yet, be your farmer.
As if to prove the videographer's point, this article exposes the contamination of our grain supply:
and this article shows that our produce is not even monitored for glyphosates (Round Up, such a well known neurotoxin that even government studies implicate it is a health threat.)
It is winter, the long dark days are here. Spend some time studying and be ready to get a nice garden in come spring.
It was supposed to be a forum where Twitter fans of the Dr. Oz Show could send in their most pressing questions for "America's doctor."
But since Oz made his offer yesterday, the #OzsInbox hashtag has turned into a channel for rage and shame, where skeptics and disappointed viewers have been venting about Dr. Oz's psuedoscience trickery.
Here are some highlights:
Exhibit overwhelms viewers with the scale of governments' secret spy programs

I'm generally upbeat on Twitter. Many of my posts are enthusiastic blurts about science or research in which I use way too many exclamation points!! But I've noticed something: When I post an acerbic or cranky tweet, it gets recirculated far more widely than do my cheerier notes. People like it fine when I'm genial, but when I make a caustic joke or cutting comment? Social media gold. This is pure anecdata, of course. Still, it made me wonder if there was any psychological machinery at work here. Is there a reason that purse-lipped opinions would outcompete generous ones?
Indeed, there is. It's called hypercriticism. When we hear negative statements, we think they're inherently more intelligent than positive ones. Teresa Amabile, director of research for Harvard Business School, began exploring this back in the 1980s. She took a group of 55 students, roughly half men, half women, and showed them excerpts from two book reviews printed in an issue of The New York Times. The same reviewer wrote both, but Amabile anonymized them and tweaked the language to produce two versions of each—one positive, one negative. Then she asked the students to evaluate the reviewer's intelligence.
The verdict was clear: The students thought the negative author was smarter than the positive one—“by a lot,” Amabile tells me. Most said the nastier critic was “more competent.” Granted, being negative wasn't all upside—they also rated the harsh reviewer as “less warm and more cruel, not as nice,” she says. “But definitely smarter.” Like my mordant tweets, presumably.
I tried ignoring this nonsense but felt compelled to comment. Let me start by stating that I have about as much love for Glenn Beck as Ed Schultz. There are occasionally times that each of them make a semi authentic point but most of the time it’s political jibberish.
Bradley Cooper captures the sad, short life of the most prolific sniper in U.S. military history
A taut, vivid and sad account of the brief life of the most accomplished marksman in American military annals, American Sniper feels very much like a companion piece — in subject, theme and quality — to The Hurt Locker. Starring a beefed-up and thoroughly Texanized Bradley Cooper as we've never seen him before, Clint Eastwood's second film of 2014 is his best in a number of years, as it infuses an ostensibly gung-ho and patriotic story with an underlying pain and melancholy of a sort that echoes the director's other works about the wages of violence. Unlike The Hurt Locker, however, this Warner Bros. Christmas release should enjoy a muscular box-office career based on the extraordinary popularity of its source book by the late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, Cooper's star status and its “God, country, family” aspects that will draw that part of the public that doesn't often go to the movies.

WASHINGTON — The number of felony suspects fatally shot by police last year — 461— was the most in two decades, according to a new FBI report.
The justifiable homicide count, contained in the FBI's annual Uniform Crime Report, has become increasingly scrutinized in recent months as questions continue to be raised about the use of lethal force by law enforcement.
Guatemala has said it is seeking $10 billion - some $2 billion a year for five years - toward the effort, chiefly from the United States.
Honduras would like that much or more, Hernandez said.
"It could be ($2 billion a year), it could be a little more," he told Reuters, speaking in Spanish. But U.S. officials have not said how much they will invest, he added.
Hernandez also said the migration crisis is a humanitarian issue, and Washington shares responsibility because of U.S. demand for drugs trafficked through Central America.
Why is the Cato Institute Pimping Pinker Propaganda?

I noticed that The Cato Institute is pimping Steven Pinker’s obtuse analyses which, whether he intends to or not, give tacit sanction to tyranny.
Many Republicans Expect Ron Paul to Help Raise Money, Rally Libertarians
By Beth Reinhard | Wall Street Journal
Steps by Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) toward launching a presidential campaign in the wake of his party’s midterm sweep are raising questions about the role of his political mentor and father, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul .
The elder Mr. Paul isn’t expected to be there on Wednesday when his son convenes political advisers from around the country for a private powwow in Washington, the latest sign that the 79-year-old former congressman may be on the sidelines of his son’s expected White House bid.
