Islam Wants Us Dead!

[This is quite controversial and not my words. I’m especially interested in the author’s suggestion that success & education are more likely to predict terrorist activity.Thoughts? ]

As I have shown in previous articles, Islam bases its claims on lies and deception (Taqiyya). Being untruthful about its reasons for existing is one of its propagandist ploys.

One of those excuses for violence is that Muslims are made poor by the West (?) and are poorly educated, so they rise up. For some reason this allows them to kill everybody who does not fit their particular set of values and descriptors! That Islamists killed from their inception, before there ever was a ‘West’, does not occur to our esteemed leaders.

Erasmus University, Rotterdam, gives actual facts, and those facts state that most who buy into ISIS and Islamic violence are, in fact, intelligent, educated, and fairly wealthy. This, of course, does not fit what Islamists are trying to say to the deluded West, and the deluded West doesn’t want to hear the truth, but seem intent on asking Islam to take over, to destroy them. Imagine if Churchill invited the Nazi SS to visit, and to take over Britain during the war!

Another Election Year, Another Bunch Of Fake Growth Numbers

By John Rubino – Re-Blogged From http://www.Gold-Eagle.com

Some pretty good economic reports have energized various parts of the financial markets lately. Consumer spending is up, GDP is exceeding expectations and even factory orders, that perennial downer, popped this morning.

In response the dollar is soaring and interest rates are at breaking out of their multi-decade down-channel. The economy is clearly recovering, implying a return to normality. Right?

Nah, it’s just the usual election year illusion. When the presidency is at stake the party in power always pumps up spending in an attempt to put people back to work and create the impression of a well-run country whose leaders deserve more time in the spotlight. After the election, spending returns to trend and the resulting bad news gets buried in “political honeymoon” media coverage.

Indonesia’s Coal Consumption Has Doubled Since 2010

By Eric Worrall – Re-Blogged From http://www.WattsUpWithThat.com

h/t JoNova – According to BP, Indonesia’s coal consumption has doubled since 2010, promoting coal to be the largest source of Indonesian energy.

Indonesia’s coal consumption remains high: BP

The BP Statistical Review 2016 revealed on Wednesday that Indonesia’s coal consumption had doubled since 2010. Last year, coal became the country’s dominant source of fuel, accounting for 41 percent of total energy consumption.

“Last year, Indonesia’s exports for coal fell sharply. The reason was because the global demand decreased at that time, during which China, one of the country’s key markets for coal exports, cut its use of coal,” Dale said.

Why ‘Doc’ Copper Is Never Wrong

By Rick Ackerman – Re-Blogged From http://www.Silver-Phoenix500.com

There is as yet insufficient evidence to speculate on whether copper’s impressive post-election leap will turn into a belly flop, or instead prove to be the booster stage of a much bigger rally. Whichever is the case — and I strongly doubt there will be any in-betweens — it’s inconceivable that this legendarily sensitive economic barometer will guess the outcome incorrectly. Inflation, or deflation? Growth or economic stagnation?  Keep your eyes focused on ‘doc’ copper and you cannot miss an important turn — assuming one comes, and however unexpected — toward inflation following 35 years of the opposite.

From a technical standpoint, it is necessary to see that, so far at least, copper’s steepest rally in a decade is still just a fledgling on the weekly chart. Yes, it has surmounted a daunting multitude of minor peaks. However, these are mere foothills in comparison to the two ‘external’ peaks that I’ve labeled. The higher lies at 3.2790, and any rally from these levels that surpasses it without taking much of a breather along the way will be convincing evidence that the rip-roaring inflation of the 1970s is about to return in some shape or form. Anything less than that, however, can only suggest that an economic upswing of indeterminate strength is coming and perhaps no more.

Weekly Climate and Energy News Roundup #249

Brought to You by www.SEPP.org – The Science and Environmental Policy Project

By Ken Haapala, President, Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP)

“Not With a Bang But a Whimper”: The 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 22), the twelfth session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP 12), and the first session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA 1) were held in Bab Ighli, Marrakech, Morocco from 7-18 November 2016. Reuters reported COP-22 began with bluster with the French President Francois Hollande claiming “inaction would be ‘disastrous for future generations and it would be dangerous for peace’”.

“Both he and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on Trump, who has called man-made global warming a hoax, to drop a campaign pledge to cancel the global 2015 Paris Agreement that aims to shift from fossil fuels to cleaner energies.

“’The United States, the largest economic power in the world, the second largest greenhouse gas emitter, must respect the commitments it has undertaken,’ Hollande said to applause. The agreement was ‘irreversible’, he said.

Gold Miners’ Q3’16 Fundamentals

By Adam Hamilton – Re-Blogged From http://www.Gold-Eagle.com

The gold miners just finished reporting their third-quarter results, which proved very impressive.  While this small contrarian sector is now languishing in the doghouse following a brutal post-election selloff, the gold miners’ fundamentals are strengthening.  Lower costs and higher gold prices led to surging operating cash flows and profits.  The major gold miners are great fundamental bargains for contrarians today.

Gold-stock bulls are among the largest ever seen in all the markets.  The flagship HUI gold-stock index skyrocketed 1664% higher over 10.8 years ending in September 2011, trouncing general-stock-market losses of 14% per the S&P 500.  Even this year between mid-January and early August, the HUI soared 182% in just 6.5 months!  Radical wealth-multiplying upside like that is well worth any psychological price.

And that is extreme volatility in gold stocks, which alternatively soar then collapse.  After the election as futures speculators dumped gold hedges, the gold stocks suffered an incredible second mass-stopping event in less than 6 weeks.  That took the HUI’s total massive correction to a colossal 36.6% in just 3.3 months!  Provocatively mid-bull corrections of this magnitude have been suffered before in gold stocks.
