The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Obama's gun control orders? Doesn't change the fact he is the world's best gun salesman

On Jan 4., President Barack Obama announced his newest attempt to stifle the Second Amendment and bring about piecemeal gun control through the use of unlawful Executive Actions.  And while Obama continues to ignore the truth that most gun crimes take place in city's that have the most stringent gun regulations, the reality is that every time he speaks on guns, the public buys more.

Black Friday 2015 was a record day for FBI background checks and gun purchases, and this carried over well into the rest of the Christmas shopping season.  And even as the stock markets show massive signs of capitulation, two companies in particular are moving up thanks to the President's crusade against guns.

So for the majority of American gun owners who have never shot anyone, and the gun companies who thought that gun restrictions would hurt sales, no worries!  The industry has never been better, even in today's global recession.

Fed trapped on rate hike decision as U.S. is in recession no matter how you spin the numbers

On Dec. 5, two interesting data points that are indicating that the U.S. is now in a recession has the Federal Reserve trapped by their own rhetoric and deceptions.  First, exports by U.S. companies dropped to a three year low as they fell ‘unexpectedly’ due to a stronger dollar and less consumerism from country’s already in their own economic downturns.  In addition, a new forecast by J.P. Morgan Chase put recession at a 76% probability, despite the so-called low unemployment numbers and near record stock market values.
Thus for the central bank, to raise rates now pushes an economy already in recession into much greater straits as there is no current indication that we have any asset inflation of note, and a rate raise would be a meaningless gesture since very little of the Fed’s trillions in Quantitative Easing (QE) ever went towards growth and real economic recovery.

Got Karatbars? Ebay finds Black Friday a big day for gold sales

As a commodity, there are many places where owners of precious metals can buy or sell gold and silver outside of a coin shop, dealer, or even Wall Street exchange, and Ebay has always been an open market for those looking to build on their stacks.

And with the paper markets driving down prices to near six year lows, the online auction site reported that Black Friday sales of gold were going gangbusters with purchases of coins, bars, and grams leading the way in nearly all items transacted on the website.
Forget gadgets and toys. Some consumers are loading up on precious metals this holiday season. 
EBay said it frequently moves $1 million to $2 million of bullion from top sellers in a day, with volume increasing as the holidays approach. On Thursday, the online marketplace offered two daily deals on gold bars, and sold about one $1,000 bar per minute, generating just under $1 million in sales. 
EBay's gross merchandise volume for bullion has spiked 60 percent from last year, and 27 percent from October, with about a quarter of sales on mobile devices. - CNBC
Despite the concerted efforts forcing down of gold prices to support the dollar, many Americans, along with consumers in the Far East, are quickly recognizing that something is wrong with the economy and global financial system, and that change is coming on the horizon one way or another.  And this is leading many to ignore Wall Street's ad hominem attacks on the precious metal, and to jump in to buy whenever prices fall and become relatively affordable.


Yet even with gold prices still hovering over $1000 per ounce, the price for most Americans is still out of reach, and a large deterrent from being able to protect their wealth and shield their assets from the global inflation that is expected to arrive when the central banks implement their next rounds of Quantitative Easing.  So with this in mind, the answer lies in not focusing on the ounce price of gold, but on grams instead, and one company has dedicated its business model to helping people around the world buy affordable gold outside of the banking system.

That company is called Karatbars.




Buying gold through Karatbars is one of the easiest things on the net.  In fact, the business model of Karatbars is to sell gold in affordable quantities, such as 1, 2.5, and 5 gram increments, and allow customers to get into the metal without having to shell out $1200+ for a single ounce coin.

And as added perks to signing up with Karatbars, as a customer or affiliate, Karatbars is working on a new e-wallet system that functions just like an offshore bank account, and is outside the authority of the banking system.  From there, you can take your fiat currency in any denomination... dollars, euros, yen, etc... and purchase physical gold which can either be delivered directly to you, or stored for free at one of Karatbar's vaults.

Additionally, any gold that you buy can easily be sold back to Karatbars, or any metals dealer, and if with Karatbars it is then exchanged for currency that is uploaded to you through a pre-loaded debit Mastercard which is connected directly to your e-wallet.  And as we know, MasterCard is recognized in nearly every country around the world, and usable in any currency that accepts it.

But perhaps the best feature with Karatbars is their affiliate program, where you can earn money off commissions from getting others to sign up and become a customer or affiliate.  Not only do you receive commissions from their purchasing of physical gold, but you also earn commissions from anyone who buys a commission package, with that money going directly into your debit MasterCard when you have enough units to cycle.

Imagine the ability to earn the money in which to buy your gold savings simply by purchasing a commission affiliate package one time, and then getting others to sign up and do the same thing.

How many businesses or entrepreneurs can build an infinite business with spending less than $400 of their own money?  And there is never a mandatory requirement to buy beyond what you desire, on your own schedule.  And there is nothing to lose, because you're using money (paper dollars) to buy gold (physical money) and in the end you don't lose a thing.


The global financial system, along with dozens of respected economists, are telling us that now is the time for the end of our current form of money, and the beginning of the transition into a new monetary system that is expected to be backed by gold.  And with banks, governments, and even Harvard professors mandating that central banks have no choice but to eliminate cash from usage by the people to stave off collapse, will you wait until it is too late to make a decision on how you will protect your wealth, and be able to function within the coming new monetary system?

To learn more about Karatbars, you can contact the individual who sent you this article, and click on their referral link to open a free account and begin buying, or building your own gold savings or business with the company of the future.

Higher inventories, earlier discounts, and consumers saving rather than spending makes for a bad holiday season

For retailers, the period between Black Friday and the end of the year can sometimes constitute 70% of their yearly revenues.  And at a time when the economy desperately needs a boost, this year is turning out to be not so kind to stores that are already discounting items 10 days before Black Friday is set to begin.
This week, a number of economic data points are forecasting not just a bad holiday shopping season, but a horrendous one.  And with the El Nino keeping Autumn weather rather warm in most parts of the country, the talking heads on Wall Street and at the Fed cannot use the weather as an excuse this time around.
But there is no need for excuses as the primary data is showing three important factors for low turnouts at the stores.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday retail sales dissapoint

It is considered the two most important selling days of the year, and can easily make or break a business dependent upon the outcome.  And with 2014 being an overall disappointing year for consumer spending, both Black Friday and Cyber Monday did little to change that trend as sales for the start of the holiday shopping season were well below expectations.

Tis the season to get high… in Colorado as pot sales soar on ‘Green Friday’

Since the sale of marijuana was legalized in Colorado and Washington earlier this year, the industry has seen its ‘highs’ and lows, but as we begin the annual holiday shopping season, demand for the formerly illegal product is soaring.  In what is being dubbed as ‘Green Friday’, pot retailers in Colorado are experiencing very good revenues as store owners began offering discounts that are part of the allure of the first day of the holiday shopping period.

Darwin had Black Friday in mind when he created the theory of survival of the fittest

Black Friday is the annual day after Thanksgiving which rings in the holiday shopping season, and brings forth the mindless multitudes buying things they don't need.  This year, Black Friday sales resembled cattle feed lots, and Black Friday consumers resembled groups of zombies, identifying flat screens with grey matter.

To illustrate the point, the Daily Economist has two disturbing and entertaining items that are occurring this Friday, and provide a unique glimpse into the survival of the fittest mode that Darwin believes are species have.


Black Friday got off to a rowdy start at a San Antonio mall where police say one shopper pulled a gun on another who punched him in the face while they were waiting in line at a Sears store.

Police Sgt. Rob Carey tells the San Antonio Express-News a man rushed into the store when it opened Thursday night to get to the front of a line, started arguing with people and tried cutting in front of them.

One man who got punched pulled a gun and that scattered shoppers, including the impatient line-cutter who took cover behind a refrigerator. Then he fled.

Carey says the man with the gun had a permit to carry the weapon and isn't being charged with a crime. - NBC DFW

And from the offensive side of the ravaging animals, comes the wonderous, rarely seen footage of the human species in desperate need of a sale.




Where are Guns and Roses when we need them, playing in the store background as it drowns out Jingle Bells.

New job loss report: To those who believed the White House, here's your sign

For the limited few out there who actually believed the September BLS report that showed the unemployment rate falling from 8.1% to 7.8%, all we at the Daily Economist have to say is, Here's your sign.

Primarily, the drop in unemployment just weeks before the election was so obvious, and so blatent, and so large, that every analyst with a modicum of respect knew that after Nov. 6, the revisions of those numbers would either pop the rate back over 8%, or quite discouragingly, move the numbers even higher than what it was.

The latest initial claims data posted a multi-year high 104,548 surge in weekly NSA claims from 361,800 to 466,348, and even the Seasonally adjusted number soaring from 361K to 439K on expectations of a 375K print. In other words, a complete disaster for any economic data bulls. What is truly amusing is that the same Wall Street "experts" who set expectations were unable to foresee the Sandy effect that every "macrotourist" on Twitter apparently is so very aware of. Also, it is apparently also "Sandy's fault" (now that the Bush excuse is back in retirement) that the prior week's claims were revised from 355K to 361K. Basically, just as we said 3 weeks ago, ignore every negative data point: - Zerohedge


Interestingly, these numbers come just before the onset of Black Friday, and the seasonal increase of temporary jobs leading into, and through Christmas.  What indications then should we expect from here, as to the retail sales for the 2012 holiday by businesses?

Not much.
