    Bottom line rampant speculation created an illusion of demand, demand the real market or put another way real buyers who wanted a home to call their own, couldn't absorb.

    It was one big bubble blown by the privately owned Federal Reserve. They create loans out of air, charge interest on them and stick the losses to the taxpayer. That system cannot sustain itself. Financial overhaul will come, but the politicians will have to blame the bankers first.

    Glass Stegall was rescinded to cause the last crisis. Now they slip the next weenie in to complete the budget.

    What Wall Street won in budget deal
    CNNMoneyInvest December 14, 2014: 12:04 AM ET

    To critics, the changes to banking regulations that lawmakers slipped into a spending bill is nothing more than a giveaway to banks. And the losers will be taxpayers, who'll be on the hook for future bailouts.
    But to Wall Street, the change is a common-sense revision to a regulation that went too far in the first place.

    To hear bankers and their lobbyists say it, the regulation that Congress is poised to wipe away would make the banking system more risky -- not less risky.
    At the center of the dispute are arcane financial instruments known as loan swaps. Those are contracts between banks used to spread the risk in their loans and trades.
    A rule that would have limited the use of those swaps by commercial banks (think Citigroup (C) or JPMorgan Chase (JPM)) was essentially stripped out of the law during budget negotiations in recent days.
    The move sparked outrage, mostly from progressives but also from some conservatives.
    "This provision is all about goosing the profits of the big banks," said Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren. The change in the law "will simply confirm the view of the American people that the system is rigged."
    Swaps were ground zero of the 2008 meltdown of the global financial system. That's because banks had bundled risky mortgage loans and sold them as bonds. And to make the bonds more appetizing to investors, swaps were created as a form of insurance that the bonds would pay as promised.
    So when the housing bubble burst and so many people couldn't afford their mortgage payments anymore, those bonds blew up. And the banks and firms like AIG (AIG) that held the suddenly-toxic swaps contracts needed bailouts.

  • FWIW... snippets of article....

    By Greg Hunter On January 4, 2015

    Gold and derivatives expert Rob Kirby thinks crashing oil prices are going to lead to a 2008 style financial meltdown. This is not a maybe–a market explosion is going to happen in 2015. Kirby contends, “Oh yes, without a doubt, it will.

    Kirby also thinks what is happening with oil prices being cut in half in a matter of months is no accident.

    What this breakdown in the crude oil price is going to spawn another financial crisis. It will be tied to the junk debt that has been issued to finance the shale oil plays in North America. It is reported to be in the area of half a trillion dollars worth of junk debt that is held largely on the books of large financial institutions in the western world. When these bonds start to fail, they will jeopardize the future of these financial institutions. I do believe that will be the signal for the Fed to come riding to the rescue with QE4. I also think QE4 is likely going to be accompanied by bank bail-ins because we all know all western world countries have adopted bail-in legislation in their most recent budgets.

    Throw up a date and the model can match something to it.

    There is no manipulation? All you had to do was look at the Dow futures this morning. Plunge protection team and ESF are there for looks only? The BIS doesn't control anything?

All the evidence that was destroyed in building 7 and the real story of what goes on behind the curtain. It will be nice to see it finally pulled back.

    Goldman head Lloyd Blankfein was completely wrong when he declared his firm was doing “god’s work”. That couldn’t be. In fact, Goldman and its principal competitors have become nothing less than the devils workshop during the modern era of Keynesian central banking instigated by Alan Greenspan. Greenspan’s “committee to save the world” did no such thing. What it did was bury the American middle class in debt, while massively outsourcing US goods production capacity to China and elsewhere in the EM.

    After years of being blocked by Democratic leader Harry Reid, The Washington Times reports, the Senate will finally get a chance next year to vote on legislation to force a broad audit of the Federal Reserve's decision-making. Ron Paul's flagship legislative efforts have been picked up by his son and now has the backing of the leader of the new Republican majority, Sen. Mitch McConnell, whose office says the legislation will earn a floor vote. While the bill is not a sure thing, it appears to have The Fed worried as Reuters reports, Yellen and other Fed officials are lobbying Capitol Hill to drop the audit push.

    As The Washington Times reports,

    After years of being blocked by Democratic leader Harry Reid, the Senate will finally get a chance next year to vote on legislation to force a broad audit of the Federal Reserve's decision-making.

    Once championed in Congress by former Rep. Ron Paul, the push to force the country's central bank to undergo a full audit has been picked up by his son, Sen. Rand Paul, and others, and has the backing of the leader of the new Republican majority, Sen. Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, whose office says the legislation will earn a floor vote.

After a solid 79 head-removals in 2013, 2014 surged 10% higher with a recent record 87 beheadings overall (following a surge since August for crimes such as "drug smuggling, witchcraft, or sorcery").

    The death or incapacity of King Abdullah will exacerbate tensions within the royal family over who should replace him.

    The official announcement that King Abdullah had been taken into a Riyadh hospital "to undergo some medical checkups" suggests serious concern about the health of the ninety-one-year-old monarch because he is assumed to have excellent medical facilities in his own palaces.

    Clearly overweight, he has previously been reported to have back problems, assumed to be responsible for his difficulty standing and thus his need for a walker. Unreported problems are thought to include the consequences of years of heavy smoking.

    As we wrap 2014 and head into 2015, what better time to hear again from our old friend, The Golden Jackass himself, Jim Willie.

    Just an apology before we get started. Jim and I are both on vacation and away from our usual recording spots. There were a number of signal interruptions as we recorded so I had to take the unusual step of splicing and dicing the interview together. Thus, you're certain to notice that the podcast jumps around a bit. I think overall message still seeps through, however, and that this interview is worthy of your time and attention.

    Happy New Year everyone! I look forward to a very interesting 2015...

    Lending rates for gold for forward delivery have remained largely in backwardation as physical demand in Asia expands at weaker prices, which are subdued in the wake of the festive season.

    Spot gold, which is now hovering around a price of $1,185 per ounce, has found support from a spike in physical demand in China before the end of the calendar year, with premiums on the Shanghai Gold Exchange climbing to $5-6 over spot prices from lows of $1-2 at the start of December.

    While current premiums are dropping slightly, uptake on the cheaper price still remains, suggesting that China’s sensitivity to the gold price is still strong.

    Further take-up may also be seen during the first few weeks of 2015 on buying ahead of the Chinese New Year in February, an auspicious period to purchase gold.

    For the week ending December 19, gold delivered from SGE vaults reached its highest in nearly a year at 61.6 tonnes, bringing the overall year-to-date figure up to 2,016 tonnes.
