Consumers are buying COPPER and thieves are stealing COPPER

PHYSICAL COPPER sales are rising

The PHYSICAL COPPER PRICES are in reality disconnected from the PAPER PRICE.  If you do research you will find that the price of copper has been steadily rising since January 2015 and the paper price is different from physical copper bullion products and collectible rounds and numismatic style ingots. 

Rocky below is angry that he has been buying SILVER which has been continually losing value since its 2011 bear market trends.  Copper however has him upset because even his own friend at the flea market is selling copper for 500% gains.  Soon we will see more interest in copper as copper becomes the poor man's silver:

(click the chart to enlarge) 

The PHYSICAL COPPER MARKET is showing increased sales

You have to do some honest research to find out what's going on in the COPPER PHYSICAL MARKET but when you do you will find out that the price of PHYSICAL COPPER BULLION and various INGOTS, ROUNDS, BARS, and COLLECTIBLES are rising faster than the price of PAPER COPPER on the futures markets.  This is an obvious price disconnect and only those who pay close attention to detail have noticed this.  

SEE SOME OF THE DEALERS FOR YOURSELF and check EBAY also for widespread copper buying opportunities: 


Also remember that if you carefully study the copper market you will find that sales are on the increase and product is SOLD OUT regularly at various dealers and suppliers.  Is it any wonder why the thieves are stealing COPPER instead of GOLD and SILVER?

Rocky will be buying COPPER soon:








The FED is already raising interest rates via HFT ALGORITHMS

Was Freddie Gray a threat to anyone?

Some men are innocent like this Freddie Gray:

The News UNIT is considered a threat by certain people and here's why:
  • The News UNIT sang a song titled "Mr. Postman" by the Marvelettes.
  • The News UNIT uses camera equipment for news stories and severe weather. (That can get you in bad standing with the police and fire officials)
  • The News UNIT owns firearms and knows the laws and how to use them.
  • The News UNIT is a believer on God and the Lord Jesus Christ
  • The News UNIT is considered a 'radical, fundamental, separatist, extremist..."
  • The News UNIT can get angry at times (ooooooh isn't that scary?)
  • The News UNIT upholds the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights and took an oath to defend it in Federal service even though that very Federal service violated my constitutional rights and discriminated against me.
  • The News UNIT realizes that something is wrong with America today.
  • The News UNIT has caught fish and buried them in his yard for compost.  (this can cause court hearings, fines, and various other suspicions)
Aren't you scared now? 

And let's take a closer look at this Freddie Gray that deserves all this justice we keep hearing about.  My guess is he's been judged by God by now and whatever God decided is what stands for Freddie Gray forever: 

These scary Marvelettes must be singing about GOIN' POSTAL?  Is that it?

Jim Rogers demonstrates the deceitfulness of riches

Can you hear the fear in Jim Rogers' voice?


[[To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.]] Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world:
Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about? 
They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:
(For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)
That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.
For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.
Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.
This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.
Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.
But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.
Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;
For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.
Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.
He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.
Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.

Money begins moving into GOLD

GOLD to resume its BULL MARKET trend

I find this article a bit hard to believe as the charts and recent technical analysis and even fundamental analysis are all in agreement that lower GOLD and SILVER prices are coming. However there is now an apparent move of money flow that is beginning to move into GOLD and various other metals as global economic concerns are on the increase. 

Some say the rich men of this world may be getting ready for some cataclysmic economic situation that may shake the global financial markets up in ways never before seen in the history of the world.  Personally I believe it may be true that the rich are making preparations with GOLD because in the scriptures we are already seeing evidence that the time may be short before the man of sin the son of perdition appears on the scene prior to the day of Christ.  

After the rich reset the world economy, hoard their GOLD, and wreak financial havoc on the lower and working class people as usual, they will find their GOLD and SILVER to be cankered and they may even toss them in the streets.  But for now the greed continues and the men in high places who serve Satan are moving right along according to the word of the Lord making preparations for the man of sin, the son of perdition to be revealed.

Meanwhile watch GOLD and watch the U.S. DOLLAR.  These charts might go off like a seismograph one of these days as the greatest financial earthquake may be about to shake the very foundation of the global banking monopoly:

We're being told one thing about the JPY (Japanese Yen) and AUS (Australian Dollar) in early trading however what really appears to be going on here is mass hysteria from ULTRA-HFT TRADING ALGORITHMS and perhaps a major shift in the currency sectors.  It appears that some massive hyper-volatility is really kicking in and charts are printing all over the place.  Also GOLD and SILVER are not reacting to the upside as the U.S. DOLLAR is selling off.  

Could this be the FINANCIAL ARMAGEDDON that Pete Santilli was talking about?

Kent Hovind's Christian confederacy is rising up to help him in prison

Praise the Lord!

The men of God are rising up.  They include but are not limited to:

  • Hagmann and Hagmann
  • "V The Guerilla Economist" :-)
  • Alex Jones and INFOWARS
  • Steve Quayle
  • Pastor James David Manning
  • Badfinger
  • G4T
You watch now as there will be a NEW MINISTRY rising up as a result of Kent Hovind being persecuted for Jesus in prison.  The result is a very profitable and lucrative ministry:


Christians prepare for a major battle already beginning

There's a 98% likelihood of Economic Armageddon beginning this week

Pete Santilli learned from Gerald Celente and Bob Chapman about what is coming upon America and now he has a new warning about a 98% likelihood of FINANCIAL ARMAGEDDON as already Friday the stock market imploded about 400 points.  Major pension funds are at risk now and anyone who does not take heed to this warning may experience great financial loss:

Should a woman be PRESIDENT or a KING?

Are MALE and FEMALE different?

The court of public opinion is again in session as the government by talk show hosts, mainstream media, and popular opinion polls continues to change the way we are supposed to look at things even demanding that those of us who believe God observe things with what is called logic and reason or sometimes referred to as having an open mind.  The world doesn't believe this but it is now entering into a time of preparation for the man of sin, the son of perdition and God shall send strong delusion so that they actually believe a lie and are damned who obey not the truth but have pleasure in unrighteousness:

Here's why Americans will be taken down by themselves

Americans are becoming more and more apt to be less resistant to the takeover by the domestic non-compliant enemy oath of office violators who no longer adhere to the U.S. Constitution or Bill of Rights.  The fighting and chaos between people now is becoming more evident and the enemies love to see this mutiny between citizens which will create just the right amount of chaos to accomplish their goals:

A message to Americans from The White House

In the message this week, Katherine Vargas talks about the President's commitment to combating the threat of climate change. The effects of climate change can not be ignored or denied. Climate change makes them larger health disparities across the country, threatening low-income communities and minorities who suffer disproportionately from chronic health conditions. Climate change poses risks to our national security, our economy and our public health. The president has already taken historic steps to address climate change, but no more than the United States and the international community can do. That's why next Wednesday at the Earth Day, the President will visit the Florida Everglades to talk about the threat that climate change poses to our economy and the world.



Is the U.S. GOVERNMENT hostile toward Christians?

If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
--I PETER 4.14-16

Some say Christians are leaving the military and getting removed from other Federal Government positions in various ways today:

Police car hits Hispanic male threatening and shooting a firearm

My thoughts on some common sense observations and ideas:

The outcome of this might have been a shoot out or otherwise.  Should we be continually critical about every aspect of law enforcement maneuvers?  I think not.  At the same time I think law enforcement shouldn't be so critical of we the people either over everything we do.  

As for police officers doing their job I have to say this:  Let them do their jobs and do not require quotas for them to obtain enforcement revenue.  That would cut down on the traffic stop stalking that goes on and is getting completely overdone across the country.  Since traffic stops are dangerous both to the officer and to the occupants of the targeted vehicle, why not seek to avoid those encounters as much as possible?  It's a sad state of affairs when quotas for tickets are a priority for revenue rather than for police officers surveilling real criminals.  

I personally would like to see a squad parked in my own yard at night doing paperwork where they area  deterrent to real crime rather than watching me put my seat belt on or off or whether I'm occasionally found doing 5 or 10 miles over a posted speed limit during normal driving transitions or while in the flow of traffic.  

Should cops be paid to do nothing?  You bet they should.  They should have a few days of nothing if nothing occurs.  Our society is becoming way too micromanaged and will only get worse now with video surveillance and the court of public opinion and mainstream media:

You don't always get tickets:  

I was on my way to work one day and was talking on my cell phone.  Oh how terrible right?  I drove the same route every day and this particular day was having a good conversation with a friend.  You might say I was distracted a bit and I agree but I'm quite capable of multitasking and being vigilant at the same time.  Nevertheless I found myself running through a 45 MPH zone at 62 MPH and went right by the sheriff squad who was parked on the side of the highway.   When I saw him I then noticed my speed and I obviously figured out what was about to occur.  And so he pulled me over:

Although he knew me I don't feel some sort of benefit to do what I want to do and so he asked me the usual question, "Do you know why I pulled you over?" 

I answered, "Yes..." and when he asked about how fast I was going I immediately gave him an answer that I was going about 62 MPH.  I also told him what I was doing and how I couldn't believe I didn't slow down in the usual spot where I drive every single day.  He gave me a warning but he really could have made me miserable otherwise and gotten revenue.

And so I see that as an example of PROTECTING AND SERVING.  It reminded me to pay attention again.  I may need another reminder down the road somewhere and already have probably given myself personal constructive criticism over various situations.  

I also watched another cop I was driving behind one time go down the road and everyone coming the other way that he was clocking on his radar speeding he would turn his lights on and they would simply slow down.   He probably had a dozen or more opportunities over a 5 mile stretch to turn around and chase them down but he chose not to do so for some reason which is usually not the norm.  But he got them to slow down instead.  

The point is for most of us who don't hate the police and are not lurking out there looking to commit crime or operate unlawfully but rather respect law and order, we know we will make certain mistakes along the way and we appreciate the friendly reminders of how we ought to behave and not become careless.  To those officers I say, "Thank you."

Here's another story:

I remember storm chasing (actually being chased by) a strong tornado in Oklahoma and when it was time to move east and escape from this approaching tornado I was the leader of probably at least 100 or more cars of storm chasers and media on an east west county roadway.  The tornado was coming directly down or just slightly off that roadway behind me.  When I pulled out to escape I was first in the line and behind me was an Oklahoma Highway Patrolman.  I immediately went into speeding and was driving no less than 70 to 80 MPH for probably 15 or more miles.  The officer was right behind me and kept up with me and behind him was an entire line of vehicles escaping the storm's path.

If I had not gone fast (and I won't disclose here what I was really doing) the line behind me would have been held back and in grave immediate danger.  You could take all the time you want to argue about storm chasing, freedom, and so forth but the point here is that if I would have sat there at 45MPH who's to say who would have been killed because of me obeying the law?  

When we got well up ahead I talked to the deputy who was actually with his young son riding with him.  I think he picked his boy up at home and took him out on the road for safety because their house was very near the track of this dangerous storm.  He knew what I was doing and he actually commended me for doing so.  He said he was concerned that I was going to go too slow or pull over because he had his emergency lights on but when I did not he thanked me for using some common sense in this situation.  

And so it's nice when all things work out in a situation and even though you might choose to be critical about this situation or other details and opinions but in this present imperfect world there will be days things work out and days that they don't always work out as we might like them to.  And so I choose to use some rational thought and common sense which may or may not be to everyone's approval at times, but I am happy I am still somewhat free to do so until the computers start driving and thinking for us.

People should remember to communicate with police officers in certain situations especially where you may have done something wrong but you can present your case quickly to them as to what happened even if you should have to admit some sort of wrong doing.  It may serve you well to do so quickly and put them in a different mind set rather than to have them deal with some uncooperative offender which is very often the case these days.  In other words OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND TALK and explain some things clearly and quickly regarding the offense.  It may be to your benefit and hopefully your officer will be one with understanding and not some self-conceited brat.  Obviously there are unfortunate circumstances in dealing with people but I think most Americans can at least attempt turn the pages ahead and try to be part of the solution rather than making more problems for all of us.
