Newmont Partners with Gold Terra in Its 5M+ AuOz Pursuit Explains Gerald Panneton

from Mining Stock Education

Executive Chairman Gerald Panneton joined Gold Terra (TSXV: YGT OTC: YGTFF FSE:TX0) because he saw the potential to grow the company’s current 735,000 gold ounce resource to over 5 million gold ounces or more. And now major gold producer Newmont also teamed up with Gold Terra in its 5M+ AuOz pursuit. The two companies recently executed an exploration agreement on certain mineral leases and mineral claims adjacent to the former producing Con Mine right next to the city of Yellowknife in Canada’s Northwest Territories. The Con Mine produced approximately 5.1 million ounces of gold between 1946 and 2005 at an amazing grade of 15 g/t, and over widths of up to 100 metres. In this interview, Gerald provides an overview of the agreement with Newmont as well as explains how this transaction benefits Gold Terra shareholders and the advancement of their Yellowknife City Gold Project.

We spoke with Judge Jeanine Pirro, the well known former judge, distract attorney, TV commentator and author. In her latest book, Don’t Lie to Me: And Stop Trying to Steal Our Freedom, she explains what the real intent of the violent left is and why the only defense we have is the re-election of President Trump. Ms. Pirro has always been a fighter for justice and individual rights. She’s outraged by the complicity of Blue State Governors and Mayors in the ongoing civil unrest, as we all should be. With so much at risk, her book is an interesting read.

Black Lives Matter: Marxist Hate Dressed Up as Racial Justice with John Perazzo

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Click Here to Listen to the Audio

Black Lives Matter’s name, explains John Perazzo, is “a carefully crafted deception,” designed to draw attention away from the fact that BLM is a hardcore Marxist movement whose overriding mission is to raze American society to the ground, and to erect a Communist utopia. In the eyes of BLM’s leaders, Perazzo writes, the United States is not a land of opportunity but rather “an irredeemably racist wasteland founded upon nothing but slavery, genocide, and all manner of oppression.”

Gold Doesn’t Care About the Fed with Craig Hemke

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Click Here to Listen to the Audio

According to Craig Hemke, there’s nothing the Fed can do now to staunch the ever increasing amount of government debt. Their hands are tied, raising interests rates is not an option and Fed Chair Jerome Powell has tacitly admitted as much. That means higher inflation, low rates into the indefinite future and by reference, higher precious metals prices. BTW, have you seen the miners lately?

Gold Miners Gone Crazy with John Feneck

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Click Here to Listen to the Audio

Gold miners are the new hottest segment of the market. After spending much of the past decade in survival mode, they’re proof that every dog has its day. With gold prices hitting an all-time record in July, and since then entering into a consolidation pattern, the miners have kept going higher. How much longer the bull market will continue is the question, but it certainly could go on for quite a bit longer. And that’s what John Feneck and his fund are counting on.

Democrats Continue to Implode with Dr. Steve Turley

Noted political expert Dr. Steve Turley, who has one of the fastest growing podcasts around, joined us today for a review of where the rioting dems are heading. And it ain’t pretty. Not only have dim-witted mayors and governors enabled and countenanced the riots, but they have been eager partners with Antifa and BLM. And the voters are repudiating them as a result. Whoever thought riots were the key to the Whitehouse should be fired. They have been the exact opposite, as normies everywhere have been appalled at the violence and looting and are demanding the reimposition of law and order.

Technocrats Freak Out Over CDC’s 6% Covid Death Figure with Patrick Wood

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Click Here to Listen to the Audio

Patrick Wood comments, “First technocrats and leftist media blame Qanon. Q is crazy, right? Then they point to Trump for retweeting that same number: if Trump said it, it must be false, right? After Twitter deleted everyone else’s tweets about it, the media figured it had to be fake news, right? Within hours, every major publication was blasting anyone and everyone who dared to “misinterpret” the CDC’s latest finding. You have to leave the interpreting part to the experts, they say, to the epidemiologists and to the scientists. Mere citizens are simply too ignorant and uneducated to understand lofty mathematical concepts like 6% or complicated medical terms like comorbidity. Fools, all of them, a pox on their houses!

“Inflation” and America’s Accelerating Class War

by Charles Hugh Smith
Of Two Minds

Those who don’t see the fragmentation, the scarcities and the battlelines being drawn will be surprised by the acceleration of the unraveling.

I recently came across the idea that inflation is a two-factor optimization problem: inflation is necessary for the macro-economy (or so we’re told) and so the trick for policy makers (and their statisticians who measure the economy) is to maximize inflation in the economy but only to the point that it doesn’t snuff out businesses and starve workers to death.

From this perspective, households have to grin and bear the negative consequences of inflation for the good of the whole economy.

This narrative, so typical of economics, ignores the core reality of “inflation” in America: it’s a battleground for the class war that’s accelerating. Allow me to explain.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dead at 87

from Zero Hedge

Justice Ruth Bader Gisnburg is dead at the age of 87, the Supreme Court announced on Friday, which added that she died of “complications of metastatic pancreas cancer.”

Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died this evening surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer. She was 87 years old. Justice Ginsburg was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Clinton in 1993. She was the second woman appointed to the Court and served more than 27 years. She is survived by her two children: Jane Carol Ginsburg (George Spera) and James Steven Ginsburg (Patrice Michaels), four grandchildren: Paul Spera (Francesca Toich), Clara Spera (Rory Boyd), Miranda Ginsburg, Abigail Ginsburg, two step-grandchildren: Harjinder Bedi, Satinder Bedi, and one great-grandchild: Lucrezia Spera. Her husband, Martin David Ginsburg, died in 2010.

The Death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the Future of the Supreme Court

What’s next for SCOTUS?

by Damon Root

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the pioneering lawyer who became a liberal hero and pop culture icon during her lengthy career on the U.S. Supreme Court, died today at the age of 87.

Ginsburg was already a towering figure in legal circles when President Bill Clinton appointed her to the Supreme Court in 1993. In 1972 Ginsburg co-founded the American Civil Liberties Union’s (ACLU) Women’s Rights Project, where she played a central role in the campaign to overturn a series of legal precedents that formally enshrined the inequality of women. Slowly but surely, Ginsburg and her allies moved the law in their preferred direction. She then capped off that remarkable career by becoming an accomplished federal judge.

Ginsburg capped off her judicial career by becoming a bona fide celebrity. Popularly known among her legions of fans as “Notorious RBG” (a play on the name of the late rapper Notorious BIG), Ginsburg has enjoyed a sort of rock star status in recent years, with her praises sung in books, articles, documentaries, movies, TV interviews, Saturday Night Live skits, and countless internet memes.

Who Killed George Floyd?

by Don Brown
American Thinker

If they get a fair trial, a questionable proposition at best, Minneapolis police officers charged with murdering George Floyd should be acquitted.

Let’s consider new, undisputed evidence, beyond the initial bystander’s video that we’ve all seen, to understand why.

On Memorial Day, around 8 PM, Minneapolis Police are called to a local convenience store. Two suspects passed a fake $20 bill to buy cigarettes. When police arrived, the shop manager pointed across the street, where three suspects sat in a parked vehicle. George Floyd sat behind the wheel.

When the officers crossed the street to investigate, two other suspects, another man, and a woman, both black, stepped from the car and politely cooperated.

But George argued and disobeyed ten separate commands from officers to keep his hands up. After the tenth order, he finally put his hands on the steering wheel as instructed.

“Giant Five Stock Index” (AAPL, AMZN, GOOG, MSFT, FB) -16% from High, Apple -20%. and Rest of the Market?

It might look a little bloody at the top, but it barely unwinds seven weeks of mind-boggling gains.

by Wolf Richter
Wolf Street

The Giant 5 stocks – Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook – as of the close on Friday, fell 4.0% during the week and are down 16.2% from their collective closing high on September 2, a drop of $1.27 trillion in combined market capitalization (data via YCharts):

[…] While a drop of $1.27 trillion for just five stocks might have sounded like a lot of money back in the day, time has moved on; these days, trillions are whooshing by so fast it’s hard to count them. That drop of $1.27 trillion amounts to a little more than one Alphabet at its peak ($1.175 trillion on September 2), meaning that if Alphabet’s shares had gone to absolute zero, while the rest of the Giant 5 had remained flat since September 2, the index would have been a little higher today.

A DARPA-Funded Implantable Biochip to Detect Covid-19 Could Hit Markets by 2021

An experimental new vaccine developed jointly with the US government claims to be able to change human DNA and could be deployed as early as next year through a DARPA-funded, injectable biochip.

by Raul Diego
Mint Press News

The most significant scientific discovery since gravity has been hiding in plain sight for nearly a decade and its destructive potential to humanity is so enormous that the biggest war machine on the planet immediately deployed its vast resources to possess and control it, financing its research and development through agencies like the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and HHS’ BARDA.

The revolutionary breakthrough came to a Canadian scientist named Derek Rossi in 2010 purely by accident. The now-retired Harvard professor claimed in an interview with the National Post that he found a way to “reprogram” the molecules that carry the genetic instructions for cell development in the human body, not to mention all biological lifeforms.

“Absolutely Terrified” Democrats Demand Emergency Investigation into Durham Probe

from Zero Hedge

In August, Attorney General William Barr refused to commit to withholding any report by DOJ watchdog John Durham before the November election – causing Congressional Democrats to froth at the mouth over an “October surprise” meant to hurt Joe Biden.

Durham was appointed by Barr to investigate the Russia investigators – including members of the Obama-Biden administration, the FBI and the DOJ.

Now, days after a top prosecutor on the Durham team resigned – reportedly over what she thought was “pressure from Barr to produce results before the November election,” the Democratic chairs of four House committees have demanded an “emergency investigation” into Durham’s probe, according to the Daily Caller.

Central Planning

by John Tamny
The American Institute for Economic Research

To read the lofty coronavirus relief proposals from Democrats and Republicans is to detect confusion about what powers economic growth. Neither side gets it.

Up front, no one seems to have asked a simple question: was anyone calling for Congress and the President to craft a “stimulus” program in February? The question answers itself. No one was looking for economic relief simply because it wasn’t needed.

So why now? Why the call for Congress to spend with abandon? This question similarly answers itself, but for those still half awake, politicians on the city, state and national levels imposed lockdowns on economic activity beginning in March. Yes, you read that right. Even though economic growth has long been the greatest enemy of virus, disease and ill health more broadly, politicians decided that the answer to the coronavirus was to force an economic contraction that destroyed tens of millions of jobs, millions of businesses, and that otherwise created economic desperation. Historians will marvel at the matchless stupidity of the U.S. the political class. They actually disappointed us this time, which is saying something.

Market Report: Sideways in Quiet Trade

by Alasdair MacLeod
Gold Money

As our headline chart shows, this week gold and silver continued its sideways drift in a narrowing trading range. On the week, gold rose by $15 to trade at $1954 in early morning European trade today, and silver was unchanged at $27.13. Comex volume in gold was moderate while in silver trading was light. It is characteristic of markets which have found a balance to trade sideways until a breakout occurs. All we can do in these circumstances is bide one’s time, and bulls will look to add on the dips and bears to sell on the rallies.

Buying appears to have revived in Asian markets, with prices firmer overnight, only to be sold down in US trading. This is partially confirmed by Asian ETF sales which are growing again. It is worth noting that the Chinese yuan has risen against the dollar, making gold prices more attractive, reversing the collapse in eastern demand when the gold price ran up to $2,000.

Market Update: DC/Wall Street Insider Predicts Coming Shock

The Fed is recklessly driving us towards an unavoidable reckoning

by Adam Taggart
Chris Martenson’s Peak Prosperity

When asked what the biggest risks facing the economy are, David Stockman, lifelong Capital Hill and Wall Street insider, says “That’s easy. There are three: The Fed, The Fed and the Fed.”

After decades of misguided policy and chronically missing its targets, Stockman thinks the Federal Reserve is truly barreling off the rails now, hurtling our market economy towards disaster.

He notes that since, 2008, the Fed has subjected the country to twelve and half years of average annual real negative interest rates of -1.35%. With capital so cheap and no ability to generate a safe return on it, corporations and investors alike have been forced out on the risk curve, which has fostered rampant malinvestment and speculation.

Trump Campaign Cash Crunch: Where is the “Silent Majority”?

As Trump retreats from TV ads, Biden spends.

Cash Crunch for Trump Campaign

The Financial Times reports Trump Retreats from Television Ads Amid Campaign Cash Crunch.

MSN reports Trump Money Crunch Limiting his Battleground Options.

Last month, Biden outraised President Trump in August by more than $150 million. That steep financial disparity heading into the critical, post-Labor Day period, combined with the Trump campaign’s heavy burn rate for several months previous, forced the cancellation of millions of dollars in battleground state ads. Biden countered with a major buy across television and digital platforms that went virtually uncontested in some crucial media markets.

Coronavirus Update: Global Case Tally Tops 30 Million, and Controversial CDC Testing Guideline Changes Were Reportedly Not Made by CDC Scientists

HHS revised the guidelines to say asymptomatic patients don’t need testing and then ‘dropped’ them on CDC site without vetting, New York Times reports

by Ciara Linnane
Market Watch

The number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 rose above 30 million on Friday, and the death toll rose above 946,000, with the U.S. death toll edging closer to 200,000 — almost a fifth of the global tally.

Controversial coronavirus-testing guidelines posted on the CDC website that said asymptomatic people don’t need to get tested even if they have been exposed to the virus were not actually written by the CDC, the New York Times reported, and were posted over the objections of CDC scientists.

Citing internal documents and sources described as familiar with the matter, the Times said the Department of Health and Human Services rewrote the testing guidelines in late August and “dropped” them into the CDC’s website without proper vetting.

The Federal Reserve is Now the Largest Holder of the U.S. Debt, Overtaking All Other Central Banks Combined

The total amount of the debt it holds equals to $4 trillion.

by Saad Ullah
The Tradable

The US Federal Reserve has become the nation’s largest holder of debt, overtaking all the world’s central banks in Treasury bonds, according to Jeroen Blokland. The amount of debt owned by the Federal Reserve is close to $4 trillion.

This became one of the consequences of the policy chosen to support the country’s economy in the times of crisis. To increase liquidity, the Federal Reserve resorted to buying bonds, which allowed the market to be saturate with cash inflows.

Gold Overboughtness Risk

by Adam Hamilton
Zeal LLC

Gold has been consolidating high since early August, when it rocketed parabolic on colossal gold-ETF demand. That 6-week-old sideways drift has worked off some greed and overboughtness, but plenty still remains. So gold isn’t out of the woods yet for this essential sentiment-rebalancing selloff. With residual overboughtness still extreme, gold faces considerable downside risk heading into its biggest seasonal selloff.

Across the financial markets, absolute price levels usually don’t matter much in technical and sentimental terms. Though they are important fundamentally. Supply and demand always converge to drive prices to sustainable levels, and over time traders come to accept them as normal. But how fast prices surged or plunged to current prevailing levels is exceedingly important, greatly affecting their short-term staying power.

Doug Casey on Gold Stock Mania

by Doug Casey
Casey Research

My regular readers know why I believe the gold price is poised to move from its current level of around $1,950 per ounce to $2,000… $3,000… and beyond.

Right now, we are exiting the eye of the giant financial hurricane that we entered in 2007, and we’re going into its trailing edge. It’s going to be much more severe, different, and longer lasting than what we saw in 2008 and 2009.

In a desperate attempt to stave off a day of financial reckoning during the 2008 financial crisis, global central banks began printing trillions of new currency units.

The printing continues to this day. And it’s not just the Federal Reserve that’s doing it – it’s just the leader of the pack.

The U.S., Japan, Europe, China… all major central banks are participating in the biggest increase in global monetary units in history.

Left-wing media figures rushed to threaten violent riots on Friday evening if President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) attempt to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away earlier in the day.

Reza Aslan, who used to have a show on CNN, responded by writing: “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f***ing thing down.”

Authorities in Arizona are on the lookout for a second suspect involved in an ambush shooting of two officers.

The shooting: The Department of Public Safety (DPS) detectives in Phoenix were reportedly on a stake-out on Thursday morning when a car (a silver Infiniti model G37) parked next to their unmarked vehicle and a shooter opened fire using an assault rifle.

The deputies were able to exit their vehicle and return fire and eventually arrested the shooter after the driver sped off and left the shooter behind. The suspect is still at large.

Neither the gunman nor the officers were injured.
