    Although I use the term “free energy” in the title, it’s not really “free,” it’s just really really really cheap and clean. A company called Blacklight Power is nearing completion of a prototype generator that will change the world as we know it.

    The generator operates by pumping a hydrated powder catalyst through a series of rotating electrodes that cause the water in the powder to explode in a brilliant flash of light. The light that is generated is the exact same spectrum as sunlight, and the flash can be upwards of 50,000 times brighter than sunlight.

    After the powder is detonated, it is recycled and rehydrated, then sent back through the system to explode once again. This means the system only consumes water, and it obtains the water it needs by sucking it out of the atmosphere. It generates no pollution and it will have a 25 year warranty.

    When this system is combined with the latest in solar cell technology, the light can be used to power a generator capable of producing 10 megawatts of power. A 10 megawatt generator is capable of powering a small city. The generator itself is a relatively simple device that’s small enough to fit inside a car’s engine space.

    Obviously this generator will change the entire global energy market. Blacklight estimates the cost per kilowatt of power to be around 100 times less than coal. Blacklight plans to have a prototype generator operational in less than six months. Their last estimate put prototype completion at about three months from now.

    Last week Blacklight closed on $16 million in private equity funding to finish up prototype development.

    Several independent labs have confirmed Blacklight’s process:

    Dr. Gilbert L. Crouse, Jr., Auburn University

    Dr. K.V. Ramanujachary, Rowan University

  • Casey Research October 9, 2014

    Years of a severe downturn in the gold market have left very few bulls to speak out in favor of the yellow metal. Here are some positive opinions on the future of the precious metal, from the recently concluded Casey Research Fall Summit.

    David Tice, founder of the Prudent Bear Fund, believes we are heading for a “global currency reset” that will reduce the role of the dollar in global trade. Central banks, he says, don’t possess all the gold they claim to, and the unwinding of the paper gold market probably isn’t far down the road—it could even ignite the next major crisis.

    The paper gold market (for example, exchange-traded funds like GLD) has massive leverage, with a ratio of 90:1 or 100:1 of paper claims on gold bullion. If only a small fraction of owners convert their paper to physical gold, says Tice, it will create a “no bid” price environment and cause the price of gold to explode.

    He believes that once the paper gold market collapses, gold will be priced on the basis of supply/demand for the physical metal—which means it could be headed for $3,000 to $8,000 per ounce.

    Ed Steer, editor of Casey Research’s popular e-letter Gold and Silver Daily, is equally bullish on gold… in the long term, because right now, he believes the gold market to be rigged: “Central banks intervene; that’s what they do.”

    They control not only gold, but also silver, platinum, palladium, copper, and oil. He says there are two possible reasons that Germany hasn’t gotten its gold back that it had stored in the US—either the gold doesn’t exist or there’s so much paper written against it that it can’t be moved for collateral reasons.

    While there’s not much an investor can do about gold manipulation, Steer believes that the manipulators’ schemes will blow up in their faces sooner than later.

  • A field supervisor in the Census Bureau’s Denver region has informed her organization’s higher-ups, the head of the Commerce Department and congressional investigators that she believes economic data collected by her office is being falsified.
    And this whistleblower — who asked that I not identify her — said her bosses in Denver ignored her warnings even after she provided details of wrongdoing by three different survey takers.
    The three continued to collect data even after she reported them.
    When I spoke with this whistleblower earlier this year as part of my investigation of Census, she told me that hundreds of interviews that go into the Labor Department’s unemployment rate and inflation surveys would miraculously be completed just hours before deadline.
    The implication was that someone with the ability to fill in the blanks on incomplete surveys was doing just that.
    The Denver whistleblower also provided to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform the names of other Census workers who can spill the beans about data fraud in other regions.
    Census is broken up into six regions. Cheating has already been proven in the Philadelphia region. And with this whistleblower’s letter, Census authorities now have allegations that the same kind of nonsense was going on in Denver — that office covers Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and Wyoming
    The Oversight Committee recently completed a report along with the Joint Economic Committee of Congress that verified one case of falsification in the Philly office. But the committee said it couldn’t prove or disprove that there was a nationwide pattern of data fraud because Commerce — which oversees Census — had “obstructed” its investigation.

    (Updates fourth paragraph to include reference to ProPublica article containing Carmen Segarra's allegations.)

    Probably most people would agree that the people paid by the U.S. government to regulate Wall Street have had their difficulties. Most people would probably also agree on two reasons those difficulties seem only to be growing: an ever-more complex financial system that regulators must have explained to them by the financiers who create it, and the ever-more common practice among regulators of leaving their government jobs for much higher paying jobs at the very banks they were once meant to regulate. Wall Street's regulators are people who are paid by Wall Street to accept Wall Street's explanations of itself, and who have little ability to defend themselves from those explanations.

    Our financial regulatory system is obviously dysfunctional. But because the subject is so tedious, and the details so complicated, the public doesn't pay it much attention.

    That may very well change today, for today -- Friday, Sept. 26 --- the radio program "This American Life" will air a jaw-dropping story about Wall Street regulation, and the public will have no trouble at all understanding it.

    The reporter, Jake Bernstein, has obtained 46 hours of tape recordings, made secretly by a Federal Reserve employee, of conversations within the Fed, and between the Fed and Goldman Sachs. The Ray Rice video for the financial sector has arrived.

    Despite repeated attempts to beat down silver with uncovered short-selling, so far this month the primary banks who control Comex trading (JP Morgan, Scotia, HSBC) have been unable to keep silver down. We know they are throwing a lot of short-selling at the silver market based on the latest COT report – notwithstanding the fact that we know JP Morgan fraudulently reports its COT positions, which means JPM’s true short position is likely much larger than is being reported.

    aided by backwardation (spot price far above near future).

    If you haven't been following gold closely, let me expand on that a little. For several months "physical gold" (bracelets, coins and small bars) have seen near riotous demand with long lines stretching into the streets. At the same time "paper gold" (ETF's, futures and nominal spot) have seen sharply falling prices. That dichotomy has sparked more than a few conspiracy theories.

  • Business Insider | 11 Aug, 2014

    No discussion about gold is complete without a good conspiracy theory.

    While most theories are easily dismissed, some stay around for a while due to a confluence of circumstantial evidence surrounding it.

    Wall Street veteran Art Cashin addresses one such theory in this morning's Cashin's Comments.

    He builds off of this weekend's New York Times story about Goldman Sachs' aluminum warehousing operation and Monday's gold spike.

    A quick note about jargon: commodities like gold will have a futures price and a spot price. The futures price is the price you'd see on a contract, which is traded on an exchange like the NYMEX. The spot price is the current price of the commodity. Backwardation occurs when the spot price is above the futures price. Typically, these two prices converge when the futures contract matures.

    From Cashin:

    All That Glitters Is Not Arbitrage - Monday, spot gold spiked up $45 and the media pundits pointed to things from China to the FOMC. While all the cited may have been factors, veteran traders saw the bulk of the move resting in a conspiracy story.

    In my mid-day email to friends I had noted this:

    Gold soars as NYT story on metal warehouses fans flames of conspiracy theorists that gold warehouse stores have been "lent" out. That theory also ..

As Ukrinform reports, sources confirm "Something is being planned, because many deputies come, probably for a quorum." Rumors are spreading that Putin is set to issue Kiev an ultimatum over recognizing separatists or face military intervention.

    IMF Concludes Review of Flexible Credit Line, Precautionary and Liquidity Line, and Rapid Financing Instrument
    Press Release No. 14/352
    July 21, 2014

    On May 21 and June 11, 2014, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) discussed the Review of the Flexible Credit Line (FCL), the Precautionary and Liquidity Line (PLL), and the Rapid Financing Instrument (RFI).

    The Board approved staff proposals to: (i) align the FCL and PLL qualification criteria by having the nine specific FCL criteria used as the basis for assessing PLL qualification, while maintaining the different qualification standards for each of these instruments; (ii) strengthen the bank solvency qualification criterion; (iii) broaden the set of institutional indicators that could help inform qualification assessments for the FCL and the PLL; and (iv) operationalize the use of an external stress index to help strengthen the discussion of country-specific external environment.

    The Board had initially met on February 14, 2014 to discuss a staff paper on the Review of the FCL, PLL, and RFI (Press Release No. 14/84). It had concluded that each of these instruments was an important component of the IMF’s lending toolkit and that the FCL and PLL had provided valuable insurance to members against external shocks. At the same time, Board members saw scope for further refinements to the instruments, and welcomed efforts to enhance their effectiveness, transparency, and attractiveness while also preserving the revolving nature of the Fund’s limited resources.
