50-year chart shows how cheap gold price still is relative to stocks
The gold price was drifting sideways on Thursday, down some $50 an ounce from a brief (but glorious) near seven-year intraday high above $1,600 an ounce a fortnight ago.
But the metal remains firmly in a bull market with a 20%-plus rise over the past year. Go back 20 years, and the rally is even more spectacular considering at the turn of the century gold was trading for a relative pittance of $270 an ounce.
Is gold overvalued at these levels? Has the rise been too far, too fast? Are gold bugs (once again) guilty of irrational exuberance? In comparison to stock markets, the answer is a resounding no. The gold price’s underperformance relative to the record–setting S&P 500 Index is stark. Today, you need little over two ounces to buy the market. The ratio was the same in September 2007 when an ounce of gold could be picked up for less than $600. The average over the long term – and we’re talking 90-years here – is 1.31. Since the US left the gold standard entirely in August 1971, it’s 1.55. That implies a fair value for gold north of $2,400 an ounce, which either means gold bugs’ party has only begun or stocks are in for a real beating... https://www.mining.com/this-50-year-chart-shows-just-how-cheap-gold-now-is-relative-to-stocks-39584/
“Campaign manager for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg‘s successful 2009 re-election bid, as Deputy Governor of Illinois.”
“Communications Director for US Senator Chuck Schumer.”
“The firm develops and runs large-scale, multi-jurisdictional campaigns for companies, including Comcast, Google, Walmart, AT&T, Pepsi, and institutions including Stanford University, the Rockefeller Foundation and Texas A&M, and individuals including Michael Bloomberg and George Lucas.”
“Tusk then joined U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer as Communications Director from 2000-2002, handling communications, strategy and policy for the Senator, most notably in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks on New York City.”
“After serving as Deputy Governor, Tusk served as Senior Vice President at Lehman Brothers, where he created the lottery monetization group and headed all of its efforts regarding U.S. based lotteries.”
That’s what we find after spending two minutes on Wikipedia. The mind boggles at what we might find if we spent a half hour off the reservation…
King County, where Seattle is located, announced on Wednesday that it’s implementing smartphone voting for an upcoming board of supervisors election.
King County’s 1.2 million residents can use their cellphones to vote in the election, which begins on January 22nd and continues until 8PM PT on February 11th.
The program is a collaboration between King County Elections; the county’s conservation district; mobile-voting nonprofit Tusk Philanthropies; the National Cybersecurity Center; and Democracy Live, a technology firm that develops electronic balloting.
“It will be easier than ever for voters to access their Conservation District ballot and cast their vote,” said Julie Wise, King County director of elections, in a statement. “Here at King County Elections, we are always looking for ways to improve access and engage our voters and this election could be a key step in moving toward electronic access and return for voters across the region.”
In an interview with NPR, Bradley Tusk, CEO and Founder of Tusk Philanthropies, emphasized the positive impact the technology could have on voter turnout. Per NPR, King County’s board of supervisors election has seen less than 1 percent of eligible voters turn out in past years. https://www.cryptogon.com/?p=57190
California Governor Newsome Has Deployed His Private Army to Ukraine In An Attempt to Destroy Criminal Evidence Against the Democrats
... before violent insurrection commences, the Democrats have one more card to play. They need to force a regime change in Ukraine so they can bury the evidence against them that could come out in a Senate Impeachment hearing. This is why Pelosi is hanging onto the articles of impeachment.
Please allow me to introduce you to the California State Military Reserve (CSMR). It has been in existence since 1846. This little-known group provides California with a trained and organized military force in the event of a state security emergency when the National Guard is deployed. But what is the Guard is deployed against California officials? I could not find an answer to that question. The CSMR is a military entity authorized both by the California State Code and by Executive Order of the Governor of California. Amazingly, the CSMR is involved in Ukraine. Possessing an understanding of the Logan Act, the CSMR and their legally prohibited role in Ukraine explains a lot about the motives for impeachment and the plans for California Democrats to commence a civil war. It should be noted that I first learned about the CSMR from the President of New California, Paul Preston. He described it as a kind of secret army that answers only to the Governor of California. What Preston told me proved to be absolutely correct... https://www.newcaliforniastate.com/single-post/2019/12/24/California-Governor-Newsome-Has-Deployed-His-Private-Army-to-Ukraine-In-An-Attempt-to-Destroy-Criminal-Evidence-Against-the-Democrats

Just A Coincidence? A U.S. Patent For ‘An Attenuated Coronavirus’ Was Filed In 2015 And Granted In 2018
We are being told that the coronavirus outbreak which is currently escalating at an exponential rate probably started with a snake. Perhaps that is true, but a lot of researchers are now pointing out some really odd “coincidences” regarding this outbreak. For example, China’s very first biosafety-level-4 lab is located just 20 miles away from where this outbreak supposedly originated. And a news report about this lab from a few years ago specifically stated that it would be “studying the pathogen that causes SARS”. Of course SARS was caused by a coronavirus, and now a “new coronavirus” has been unleashed in the only Chinese city where coronavirus research was being conducted.
The headlines in Israel news today are; "Trump says Israel-PA peace deal will be unveiled before Prime Netanyahu and Gantz arrive in Washington next Tuesday (January 28/20).
Five years ago this week, my wife (Linda) and I went to Auschwitz concentration camp in memorial to the liberation of this concentration camp Seventy years earlier on January 27th 1945 the Russian forces arrived at the camp and liberated it. My mother and father to be were two of those Jewish people liberated that day. My mother's name was Esther Mendelson and my father's name was Moshe Allalouf. They were later known by their English names (in Toronto Canada) as Stella & Morris Allalouf. The estimates vary on how many Jewish people were in the camp still alive on that fateful day of January 27 1945. Some say about 4,000 and others say as high as 7,000. But either way my parents were two of those survivors. Out of possibly 1.4 million Jewish people who entered the gates of that camp (even though they found over 4 million pairs of shoes), the absolute majority were murdered there, many within a few hours after their arrival. I never got to meet any of my aunts or uncles or cousins, except for one cousin Daniela Allalouf who remains alive in Berlin Germany today. The rest perished in the gas chambers of that camp Auschwitz.
This year the 75th anniversary memorial is being held in Jerusalem at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum (link herefor FB video), with 48 heads of state attending. But I question the motives of some of those who attended. Like the president of France Macron was quite disrespectful towards Israeli police trying to secure his visit, showinghis arrogance towards Jews. And the next day he went to Ramallah to meet with Israel'd adversaries about the need to create a PA state within Israel's borders. Not all of the leaders had a bad attitude, the President of Germany had some serious words to speak. But there is much more happening here and something very seriously wrong with the atmosphere of these gatherings and the backroom and side room meetings which are taking place.
On the surface I can agree with this writer writes: ""They crawled. Like lizards," wrote Yehiel De-Nur, an author and a survivor himself who coined the term "Muselmann" – a person who was suffering from a combination of starvation and exhaustion, and who was resigned to his or her impending death. "Humans who weighed as much as their bones and whose intestines were as fine as a spider's web," De-Nur wrote. Why is the government of Israel celebrating the liberation of these people with a luxe dinner party at the President's Residence in Jerusalem?" full story Here
This is an excerpt from Avner Boskey's article recently concerning this whole question of remembrance: "G.W.F. Hegel once said, “We learn from history that we do not learn from history.” An awareness of the Jewish Holocaust did not prevent genocide-like atrocities since then, whether in Cambodia, Rwanda or Syria/Iraq. Education is not a panacea or a magic bullet which will sap the demonic strength of Jew-hatred. There is a spiritual root here, as Yeshua’s half-brother James tells us: “What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel” (James 4:1-2)."
But in closing I want to address the main reason for me writing this article today. And that is that it looks like the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump is about to unveil what he calls "The Deal of The Century". From all I have ever seen and heard in the past twenty years concerning of this lying spirit which continuously declares: "Peace and Security" spoken by many in recent years. It looks like D Trump is about to introduce his plan to divide Israel, when? On the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz Concentration camp. Which falls on Monday January 27th 2020. Is it the Lord that is giving us 20/20 vision to see the plan of the enemy?
Twenty years ago on August 13 1999 the Lord spoke a very strong piercing word to me in the Galilee. That there was coming a division of the land and a division of the people Israel. I knew that there would come a plan to divide the nation, and that it would ultimately be God's discipline on the nation of Israel. But woe to the nations. Could President D Trump be disillusioned to the point that he will use the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, to unveil a plan that will divide the "Promised Land Of God"? On May 28 2013 we have this statement made by Tourism Minister Uzi Landau: During the meeting, Tourism Minister Uzi Landau (Likud-Beiteinu) mentioned a statement by the late Abba Eban, according to which an Israeli withdrawal from the territory it captured during the 1967 war would mark a return to “Auschwitz borders.” Tourism Minister Uzi Landau warned: “The legendary foreign minister Abba Eban once said that the 1967 borders were “Auschwitz borders” What country wants to (withdraw) to borders it cannot protect?” Landau was referring to an interview Eban gave to German weekly news magazine Der Spiegel in 1969, in which he said: “The June (1967) map is for us equivalent to insecurity and danger. I do not exaggerate when I say that it has for us something of a memory of Auschwitz.”
To close this article I want to also to mention a event which took place the day before all the world leaders started coming to Israel. A meteor entered into the atmosphere directly over Israel and turned the entire sky Blue. When I heard this report, I knew The Lord was making a declaration to the nations and people of the earth. This event is captured on video here, and this is the scripture that comes to mind: They saw the God of Israel. Under his feet was like a paved work of sapphire (blue) stone, like the skies for clearness. Exo 24:10 "There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand." Pro 19:21. full story Here
There is no question the color of Israel and the God of Israel is blue.
In the KJV Bible, the word 'blue' occurs fifty times, all of which are in the Old Testament. The Hebrew word translated as this color is tekeleth (Strong's Concordance #H8504), which is a reference to the animal from which the dye is obtained. Its meaning in Scripture is that of representing God (Exodus 24:10, 25:3, 38:18, Numbers 4:6 - 12, 2Chronicles 2:7, Ezekiel 1:26, etc.), royalty (Esther 1:6, Ezekiel 23:6, Jeremiah 10:9), riches (Ezekiel 27:7, 24) or service to God and godly living (Exodus 28:6, 8, 13, 31, Numbers 15:38 - 40, Esther 8:15). https://wordfromyerushalaim.wordpress.com/
