This is an especially great opportunity to SELL / TAKE PROFITS since this suckers rally to suck suckers in and keep

them sucked in is based on fraud and b*** s*** alone and: ‘This is a global depression. This is a secular bear market in a global depression. This was a manipulated bull (s***) cycle in a secular bear market. This has been a typically manipulated bubble as has preceded the prior crashes with great regularity that the wall street frauds and insiders commission and sell into. This is a typical wall street churn and earn pass the hot potato scam / fraud as in prior crashes.’ Continuing claims for unemployment fell more than expected to 4.41 million but the expiration of worker benefits (a big negative for consumption) played a major part in that drop. Clearly a desperate, fallen europe has adopted the fraudulent american b*** s*** paradigm to help froth the markets for similar fraudulent reasons. Don’t forget, they ultimately followed america’s ill-fated lead in lemming-like fashion of valuing worthless assets at mark to anything and there are still hundreds of trillions in worthless fraudulent paper carried at ‘mark to anything’. Retailers deepened discounts more than planned in June to draw recession-scarred shoppers to buy summer clothes and other merchandise; but shoppers bought mostly necessaries, resulting in small and less than expected revenue gains. Too Soon to Call End to Correction Jerry Slusiewicz ‘The markets current three day rally has lifted the animal spirits of investors from every breed. The bulls are now claiming victory and the bears are still growling away. I like to look at pictures because as they say, “A picture paints a thousand words.” [chart] For traders maybe this three day rally on the heels of a nine day decline within the prior 10 trading days is meaningful. But this picture shows that the uptrend from last year is broken. The 50 day moving average is now lower than the 200 day average. We have a series of lower highs and lower lows which is forming a trend, and not shown is the light volume that has accompanied the recent market run-up. From a fundamental standpoint not much has changed either. Europe is still in a quandary. Housing (and credit), which started this whole mess is still in trouble. As a matter of fact, mortgage rates are at record-low levels and and even with that, new home sales and pending home sales plunged to new all-time lows in May. Also mortgage applications for purchases are still declining in June, and that demonstrates how beleaguered the real estate sector truly is. Those who think the economy doesn’t need the real estate sector to improve for the overall economy to recover are forgetting that for most Americans their home is their largest investment. Add to that fact the realization that consumer spending accounts for 70% of our economy. When people feel “house poor”

they are less inclined to spend heavily. Therefore housing must recover for there to be a lasting economic recovery. Until the current downtrend actually changes, it is premature to guess that the correction is over. This is most likely a reprieve before the next leg down.

Economists, Financial Experts: U.S. Is Trapped In 1932 Size Depression Following Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman’s declaration last week that the U.S. is in entering a third period of great depression, more and more economists are following suit, comparing the scale of the crisis to that of the early 1930s. Another Light Volume Rally: Dave's Daily … Words fail me. That's about all one can say. Jobless Claims came in about as expected, lower than last week, but still trolling the ocean floor.

Should You Bear Market Proof Your Portfolio? Simon Maierhofer, July 7, 2010: The area was known to be an idyllic sanctuary. Snowcapped mountains, crystal clear lakes, warm

summers, a gentle autumn ... you get the picture. For nearly 180 years, Mount St. Helens remained silent, towering over the beautiful scenery below. However, there were early warning signs pointing towards a potentially catastrophic eruption of the volcano. Most viewed them as nothing more than hot air (no pun intended). Doug, a farmer who lived close to the foot of the mountain refused to evacuate. 'My mountain wouldn't do that to me' he said. Less than 24 hours later, Doug and his farm were buried beneath 70 feet of mud and volcanic debris. What's the moral of this story? 1) Even subtle signs can foreshadow a significant event 2) Just because an event doesn't occur regularly doesn't mean it can't happen. What does the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens have to do with the stock market? More than you'd think. Subtle Signs - Significant Results Do you remember how stocks (NYSEArca: VTI - News) slowly but steadily inched towards their April 26 highs? For nearly two months (from 2-26-10 to 4-15-10) the S&P (SNP: ^GSPC) moved up without more than a 0.5% down day. The picture for the Dow (DJI: ^DJI) and Nasdaq (Nasdaq: ^IXIC) looked similar. Beneath the surface of rising prices, however, trouble was brewing. On Wednesday, April 14, the CBOE Equity Put/Call Ratio dropped to 0.32, the lowest reading in nearly two years and was 45% below its six-month average. On April 16, the ETF Profit Strategy Newsletter picked up the subtle put/call ratio warning signal and published this cautionary note: 'Only a minority of equity positions are equipped with a put safety net. Once prices do fall and investors do get afraid of incurring losses, the only option is to sell. Selling, results in more selling. This negative feedback loop usually results in rapidly falling prices.' The 22 trading days following the April 26 market highs erased eight months worth of gains. Bear markets move much quicker than bull markets. Rule #1: Better too Early than too Late When preparing for a bear market (we'll discuss in a moment why we have been preparing for a bear market), it is prudent to start early. Anyone who sold their long positions as early as September last year would be in a better position than the buy-and hold crowd that is still clinging to their holdings. Rule #2: Don't Trust Wall Street and the Media By now, even the mainstream media is sensing that something might not be quite right with the market's performance. However, there is still hope that the second half of the year will get a lift from positive earning results. Before you bet your money on that line of reasoning, consider the picture the media painted days within the April 2010 market top. April 19, 2010 'America is back - The remarkable tale of an economic turnaround' – Newsweek 'Recovery tilting to V-shape as profits prompts growth revision' – Bloomberg April 25, 2010: 'U.S. stocks cheapest since 1990 on analyst estimates' – Bloomberg 'Technical Analysts see room to roll' - Wall Street Journal April 27, 2010 'Greece contagion fears unfounded' – Reuters May 3, 2010: 'Manufacturing in U.S. grows at fastest pace since 2004 as recovery gains traction' – Bloomberg Over the past two and a half months, the S&P (NYSEArca: SPY - News) and Dow (NYSEArca: DIA - News) have lost as much as 17%. A 20% loss is considered the mark of a new bear market. In essence, we are only one bad day away from the next bear. Of course, throughout the massive bear market rally from the March 2009 lows, which the ETF Profit Strategy Newsletter predicted via the March 2, 2009 Trend Change Alert, the newsletter maintained that it was only a bear market trap which would fool a majority of investors. On April 16 it stated that 'Most bulls have no clue why they are bullish except for the fact that they feel the need to play the momentum game.

Sounds like 2000 and 2007 all over again. The message conveyed by the composite bullishness is unmistakably bearish.' Rule #3: Don't Underestimate Cash In a period of falling prices, cash or cash equivalents like short term Treasuries (NYSEArca: SHY - News) maintain your purchasing power - long-term Treasuries (NYSEArca: TLT - News) are interest rate sensitive and may move faster than you think. When stocks fall and you are able to maintain your purchasing power, you are able to buy stocks at a discount. In essence, cash offers a positive return in periods of falling prices. Additionally, or alternatively, investors may choose to buy short or leveraged short ETFs such as the Short S&P 500 ProShares (NYSEArca: SH News), Short Dow30 ProShares (NYSEArca: DOG - News) UltraShort S&P 500 ProShares (NYSEArca: SDS - News), UltraShort Financial ProShares (NYSEArca: SKF - News), Direxion Daily Financial Bear 3x Shares (NYSEArca: FAZ - News) and many more. Rule #4: Don't Procrastinate On May 14, the ETF Profit Strategy Newsletter predicted that the S&P (NYSEArca: IVV - News) will fall through the important 1,040 resistance level. Aside from a small cluster of resistances (one being round number resistance), a break below 1,040 opened the door wide for significantly lower prices. We mentioned above that we've been preparing for a reemerging bear market even before the April highs. Why? Simply put, stocks are overvalued. How can that be? One of the above headlines read that U.S. stocks are cheapest since 1990, at least according to analyst projections. The key word is projections. Analysts project operating earnings for the S&P to clock in at $94.83 in 2011. This is higher than the 2007 peak of $91.47. That's right, despite record high unemployment, a European (NYSEArca: FEZ - News) debt crisis, a 17% U.S. market correction, and all the other problems economists expect corporate profits will exceed their 2007 all-time highs. Does that sound reasonable to you? Keep in mind that projected earnings are just that projected. They can and will change. In fact, analysts have a reputation of following the trend. In April 2008, analysts predicted earnings of $113. After cutting its forecast to $53, Goldman Sachs cut its earnings forecast to $40 in March 2009. As we know today, stocks rallied, and actual 2009 earnings came in at $56.87. The list goes on, but the simple message is that analysts tend to be overly optimistic before the fall and overly pessimistic before a rally. Right now they are overly optimistic. The conclusion is easy. Rule #5: Know who to Trust EVEN WHEN BASING THE CURRENT P/E RATIO ON OVERLY OPTIMISTIC ESTIMATES, IT IS STILL FAR AWAY FROM THE P/E RATIOS SEEN AT HISTORIC MARKET BOTTOMS. THE SAME HOLDS TRUE FOR DIVIDEND YIELDS. A LOOK AT VARIOUS VALUATION MEASURES SHOWS THAT THE MARKET IS OVERVALUED BY MUCH MORE THAN JUST 10 OR 20%. The ETF Profit Strategy Newsletter provides a detailed analysis of four valuation metrics with a near spotless track record of historic accuracy. The Newsletter also includes a target range for the ultimate market bottom and the one chart that highlights the short-term bearish potential. Will you head the warnings signs, or like farmer Doug trust that the market won't fall on you?

Even some of their simplest products are junk (but priced incredibly low to make the relative value) and seem to have adopted that GM strategy of planned obsolescence, breakdown, etc., to spur sales.

Double Dip Recession and the Obama 2011 Budget (February 2010): The long and short is that – come Summer – the inventory cycle’s thrust will have dissipated. And if companies are not hiring by this time and consumer spending is not increasing more robustly, then the state budgets, the strategic defaults and all of the rest of that becomes a serious obstacle. In my view, more likely than not, this will lead to another recession late in 2010 or in 2011. And nothing in the President’s budget changes this outlook. The mindset will not change; a depressionary relapse may be coming (March 2010): the inventory cycle’s impact on GDP growth will attenuate. By the second half of 2010, inventories will not add considerably to GDP. US GDP growth rate is unsustainable; recovery will fade (April 2010): The inventory cycle is already starting to fade. That means weak 1 or 2% growth at best by Q4 2010. Unless job growth picks up tremendously by the second half of the year, this recovery is in trouble.

U.S. Stock Market T. ROWE PRICE: Week Ended July 2, 2010 - Stocks fell for the second week to round out their first quarterly decline in over a year. The major indexes declined every day of the week as investors grew increasingly concerned about the durability of the economic recovery. Stocks fell particularly sharply on Tuesday, after the Conference Board reported a sharp drop in consumer confidence in June and a decline in its leading indicator of growth in the Chinese economy. Signs of renewed weakening in the housing market despite mortgage rates being near record lows weighed on sentiment as well, as an index of pending home sales in May fell back to its lowest seasonally adjusted level since 2001. Investors also worried about signs job growth was slowing. On Wednesday, payroll processing firm ADP reported only a modest rise in June for its gauge of private sector employment, and Thursday brought word of an unexpected rise in weekly jobless claims. The Labor Department's broader payrolls report on Friday showed an uptick in private-sector hiring in the month, but also the first overall decrease in several months as thousands of temporary census jobs came to an end. Investors were also discouraged by a largerthan-expected decline in factory orders in May.

50 Random Facts That Make You Wonder What In The World Has Happened To America The Economic Collapse July 2, 2010 Our world is changing at a pace that is so staggering these days that it can be really hard to fully grasp the significance of what we are witnessing. Hopefully the collection of random facts below will help you to “connect the dots” just a little bit. On one level, the facts below may not seem related. However, what they all do have in common is that they show just how much the United States has fundamentally changed. Do you ever just sit back and wonder what in the world has happened to America? The truth is that the America that so many of us once loved so much has been shattered into a thousand pieces. The “land of the free and the home of the brave” has been transformed into a socialized Big Brother nanny state that is oozing with corruption and has accumulated the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the world. The greatest economic machine that the world has ever seen is falling apart before our very eyes, and even when our politicians actually try to do something right (which is quite rare) the end result is still a bunch of garbage. For those who still love this land (and there are a lot of us) it is heartbreaking to watch America slowly die. The following are 50 random facts that show just how dramatically america has changed…. #50) A new report released by the United Nations is publicly calling for the establishment of a world currency and none of the major news networks are even covering it. #49) Arnold Schwarzenegger has ordered California State Controller John Chiang to reduce state worker pay for July to the federal minimum allowed by law — $7.25 an hour for most state workers. #48) A police officer in Oklahoma recently tasered an 86-year-old disabled grandma in her bed and stepped on her oxygen hose until she couldn’t breathe because they considered her to be a “threat”. #47) In early 2009, U.S. net national savings as a percentage of GDP went negative for the first time since 1952, and it has continued its downward trend since then. #46) Corexit 9500 is so incredibly toxic that the UK’s Marine Management Organization has completely banned it, so if there was a major oil spill in the North Sea, BP would not be able to use it. And yet BP has dumped over a million gallons of dispersants such as Corexit 9500 into the Gulf of Mexico. #45) For the first time in U.S. history, more than 40 million Americans are on food stamps, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture projects that number will go up to 43 million Americans in 2011. #44) It has come out that one employee used a Federal Emergency Management Agency credit card to buy $4,318 in “Happy Birthday” gift cards. Two other FEMA officials charged the cost of 360 golf umbrellas ($9,000) to the taxpayers. #43) Researchers at the State University of New York at Buffalo received $389,000 from the U.S. government to pay 100 residents of Buffalo $45 each to record how much malt liquor they drink and how much pot they smoke each day. #42) The average duration of unemployment in the United States has risen to an all-time high. #41) The bottom 40 percent of all income earners in the United States now collectively own less than 1 percent of the nation’s wealth. #40) In the U.S., the average federal worker now earns about twice as much as the average worker in the private sector. #39) Back in 1950 each retiree’s Social Security benefit was paid for by 16 workers.

By 2025 it is projected that there will be approximately two workers for each retiree. #38) According to a U.S. Treasury Department report to Congress, the U.S. national debt will top $13.6 trillion this year and climb to an estimated $19.6 trillion by 2015. #37) The federal government actually has the gall to ask for online donations that will supposedly go towards paying off the national debt. #36) The Cactus Bug Project at the University Of Florida was allocated $325,394 in economic stimulus funds to study the mating decisions of cactus bugs.

#35) A dinner cruise company in Chicago got nearly $1 million in economic stimulus funds to combat terrorism. #34) It is being reported that a 6-year-old girl from Ohio is on the “no fly” list maintained by U.S. Homeland Security. #33) During the first quarter of 2010, the total number of loans that are at least three months past due in the United States increased for the 16th consecutive quarter. #32) According to a new report, Americans spend twice as much as residents of other developed countries on healthcare, but get lower quality and far less efficiency. #31) Some experts are warning that the cost of bailing out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac could reach as high as $1 trillion. #30) The FDA has announced that the offspring of cloned animals could be in our food supply right now and that there is nothing that they can do about it. #29) In May, sales of new homes in the United States dropped to the lowest level ever recorded. #28) In 1950, the ratio of the average executive’s paycheck to the average worker’s paycheck was about 30 to 1.

During those 54 years you will pay $26,168 in interest rate charges in addition to the $6000 in principal that you are required to pay back. #24) According to prepared testimony by Goldman Sachs Chief Operating Officer Gary Cohn, Goldman Sachs shorted roughly $615 million of the collateralized debt obligations and residential mortgage-backed securities the firm underwrote since late 2006. #23) The six biggest banks in the United States now possess assets equivalent to 60 percent of America’s gross national product. #22) Four of the biggest U.S. banks (Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup) had a “perfect quarter” with zero days of trading losses during the first quarter of 2010. #21) 1.41 million Americans filed for personal bankruptcy in 2009 – a 32 percent increase over 2008. #20) BP has hired private security contractors to keep the American people away from oil cleanup sites and nobody seems to care. #19) Barack Obama is calling for a “civilian expeditionary force” to be sent to Afghanistan and Iraq to help overburdened military troops build infrastructure. #18) On June 18th, two Christians decided that they would peacefully pass out copies of the gospel of John on a public sidewalk outside a public Arab festival in Dearborn, Michigan and within 3 minutes 8 policemen surrounded them and placed them under arrest. #17) It is being reported that sales of foreclosed homes in Florida made up nearly 40 percent of all home purchases in the first part of this year. #16) During a recent interview with Larry King, former first lady Laura Bush revealed to the world that she is actually in favor of legalized gay marriage and a woman’s “right” to abortion. #15) Scientists at Columbia University are warning that the dose of radiation from the new full body security scanners going into airports all over the United States could be up to 20 times higher than originally estimated. #14) 43 percent of Americans have less than $10,000 saved for retirement. #13) The FDIC’s deposit insurance fund now has negative 20.7 billion dollars in it, which represents a slight improvement from the end of 2009. #12) The judge that BP is pushing for to hear an estimated 200 lawsuits on the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster gets tens of thousands of dollars a year in oil royalties and is paid travel expenses to industry conferences. #11) In recent years the U.S. government has spent $2.6 million tax dollars to study the drinking habits of Chinese prostitutes and $400,000 tax dollars to pay researchers to cruise six bars in Buenos Aires, Argentina to find out why gay men engage in risky sexual behavior when drunk.

Double Dip Picking Up: Jobless Claims Spike To 472,000, On Expectations Of 455,000 Jobless claims were a disaster, coming in at 472k, on expectations of 455k.

Six Months to Go Until the Largest Tax Hikes in History...
SIX MONTHS TO GO UNTIL THE LARGEST TAX HIKES IN HISTORY From Ryan Ellis on Thursday, July 1, 2010 4:15 PM Read more: In just six months, the largest tax hikes in the history of America will take effect. They will hit families and small businesses in three great waves on January 1, 2011: First Wave: Expiration of 2001 and 2003 Tax Relief In 2001 and 2003, the GOP Congress enacted several tax cuts for investors, small business owners, and families. These will all expire on January 1, 2011: Personal income tax rates will rise. The top income tax rate will rise from 35 to 39.6 percent (this is also the rate at which two-thirds of small business profits are taxed). The lowest rate will rise from 10 to 15 percent. All the rates in between will also rise. Itemized deductions and personal exemptions will again phase out, which has the same mathematical effect as higher marginal tax rates. The full list of marginal rate hikes is below: - The 10% bracket rises to an expanded 15% - The 25% bracket rises to 28% - The 28% bracket rises to 31% - The 33% bracket rises to 36% - The 35% bracket rises to 39.6%

Higher taxes on marriage and family. The “marriage penalty” (narrower tax brackets for married couples) will return from the first dollar of income. The child tax credit will be cut in half from $1000 to $500 per child. The standard deduction will no longer be doubled for married couples relative to the single level. The dependent care and adoption tax credits will be cut. The return of the Death Tax. This year, there is no death tax. For those dying on or after January 1 2011, there is a 55 percent top death tax rate on estates over $1 million. A person leaving behind two homes and a retirement account could easily pass along a death tax bill to their loved ones. Higher tax rates on savers and investors. The capital gains tax will rise from 15 percent this year to 20 percent in 2011. The dividends tax will rise from 15 percent this year to 39.6 percent in 2011. These rates will rise another 3.8 percent in 2013. Second Wave: Obamacare There are over twenty new or higher taxes in Obamacare. Several will first go into effect on January 1, 2011. They include: The “Medicine Cabinet Tax” Thanks to Obamacare, Americans will no longer be able to use health savings account (HSA), flexible spending account (FSA), or health reimbursement (HRA) pre-tax dollars to purchase non-prescription, over-the-counter medicines (except insulin). The “Special Needs Kids Tax” This provision of Obamacare imposes a cap on flexible spending accounts (FSAs) of $2500 (Currently, there is no federal government limit). There is one group of FSA owners for whom this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous: parents of special needs children. There are thousands of families with special needs children in the United States, and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education. Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington, D.C. (National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year. Under tax rules, FSA dollars can be used to pay for this type of special needs education. The HSA Withdrawal Tax Hike. This provision of Obamacare increases the additional tax on non-medical early withdrawals from an HSA from 10 to 20 percent, disadvantaging them relative to IRAs and other tax-advantaged accounts, which remain at 10 percent. Third Wave: The Alternative Minimum Tax and Employer Tax Hikes When Americans prepare to file their tax returns in January of 2011, they’ll be in for a nasty surprise—the AMT won’t be held harmless, and many tax relief provisions will have expired. The major items include: The AMT will ensnare over 28 million families, up from 4 million last year. According to the left-leaning Tax Policy Center, Congress’ failure to index the AMT will lead to an explosion of AMT taxpaying families—rising from 4 million last year to 28.5 million. These families will have to calculate their tax burdens twice, and pay taxes at the higher level. The AMT was created in 1969 to ensnare a handful of taxpayers. Small business expensing will be slashed and 50% expensing will disappear. Small businesses can normally expense (rather than slowly-deduct, or “depreciate”) equipment purchases up to $250,000. This will be cut all the way down to $25,000. Larger businesses can expense half of their purchases of equipment. In January of 2011, all of it will have to be “depreciated.” Taxes will be raised on all types of businesses. There are literally scores of tax hikes on

business that will take place. The biggest is the loss of the “research and experimentation tax credit,” but there are many, many others. Combining high marginal tax rates with the loss of this tax relief will cost jobs. Tax Benefits for Education and Teaching Reduced. The deduction for tuition and fees will not be available. Tax credits for education will be limited. Teachers will no longer be able to deduct classroom expenses. Coverdell Education Savings Accounts will be cut. Employer-provided educational assistance is curtailed. The student loan interest deduction will be disallowed for hundreds of thousands of families. Charitable Contributions from IRAs no longer allowed. Under current law, a retired person with an IRA can contribute up to $100,000 per year directly to a charity from their IRA. This contribution also counts toward an annual “required minimum distribution.” This ability will no longer be there. Read more:

Investors get more gloomy & bearish We just had a very difficult three month stretch for stocks. The S&P 500 fell 12% for the quarter as did NASDAQ. The Shanghai Composite, China’s largest stock index, fell 22.9 in its local currency, the yuan. The MSCI EAFE Index (foreign stocks) was down 14%. Given the negative news, it is not surprising that investors are becoming more bearish on stocks. This chart from Bespoke is based on the weekly Investors Intelligence survey, which is getting close to levels from a year ago. This is not close the peak we reached in early 2009, but the mood is definitely more negative now: [chart]

Double Dip on the Way There were many events contributing to yesterday’s sell-off, and the most likely culprits around the globe included more protests in Greece, continued to concerns about Europe at large, and a downward revision (due to a calculation error) of a leading economic indicator reading in China for the month of April. But when it comes down to it, our own economy has yet to stand on solid ground. While the recovery has continued to be shaky at best, recent economic readings may be pointing to a double dip recession. Yesterday’s batch of economic data seemed to be confirming that, as it brought a very dismal reading on consumer confidence. June’s number stood at 52.9, far below expectations of 62.5, and pointing to the consumers’ weariness about the job market, and economic recovery in general. To go further, the previous reading for May was revised downward, to 62.7 from 63.3. But the drop from May to June really sends the message home: we’re not out of the woods yet. Earlier in the week, we saw personal savings rates rise again, even while personal income growth was meager. Americans, despite bringing home a little more cash, continued to save more for the expected rainy days, and have yet to return to their spendthrift ways. After yesterday’s precipitous selling, one would expect to see a bit of a bounce in today’s trading session. That wasn’t the case, however, as more weak data continued to dampen economic hopes. Today’s culprit was the ADP private sector job report. The report stated that private payroll gains were muted in June, with only 13,000 jobs added – far less than the 60,000 expected by economists. While May’s reading was revised slightly upwards (to 57,000 hires from previously reported 55,000), today’s release does not bode well for the much anticipated report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics due out on Friday. The non-farms payroll survey includes government workers and has been inflated in recent months due to hiring for the 2010 Census … [chart] …The June report, however, will reflect many of those workers being laid off in the past month. In May, 431,000 jobs were added, but without support from temporary government hires, economists are predicting job losses in June. Last week, consensus

estimates were for a loss of 70,000 jobs for the month. By yesterday, those estimates were downgraded further, to 110,000. With the help of today’s ADP report, expectations have continued to fall: economists now expect a reading of negative 125,000 …

Barron's: Why the Market Will Keep Sliding Perry D- Barron's has a nice summary of what the future may hold in its "Up and Down Wall Street." It summarizes as well as anything I've read recently where we're likely headed. Bugging the (stock) market is the increasingly obvious disparity between what the Street's incorrigible cheerleaders see and prophesy and what's actually happening in the real world...The double dip in housing may or may not be a template of what's in store for the economy as a whole. But at the very least, it is a precursor of other serious disappointments destined to feed the unease among the jittery populace, which most emphatically includes investors. It cites the predictions of SDK Captial's Dee Kessler: --the massive fiscal and monetary stimulus so liberally applied in 2008-2009 is starting to run out of steam, with financial conditions tightening and leading economic indicators pointing to a stretch of "anemic activity." --"structural headwinds," such as public and private deleveraging, higher taxes, greater regulation and trade tensions. --the well-publicized woes of the European bloc, which accounts for 20% of the world's GDP, as further evidence that the global economy, as he puts it, is downshifting. --The period of easy comparisons in corporate results, he says, is coming to a close, --"Although the fundamentals in the U.S., Europe and Japan are worse," Dee spots plenty of downside in emerging markets and doesn't fancy the notion of decoupling. --Come another financial crisis, "the only policy response left will be to print money." Which, of course, is what the gold bugs are counting on and why bullion has glistened so brightly. That about sums up the outlook. The nice insight here is that anxiety over future economic malaise -- and the additional money printing that'll be done to mask it -- might be a bigger factor than current inflationary pressure behind the surge in gold prices. In other words, for the deflation-believers: deflation today? Perhaps. But big-time inflation tomorrow. Disclosure: No positions NY Times’ Krugman: We Are Entering The Third Depression Recessions are common; depressions are rare. [Correction: we’re already in a depression]. Stocks: Once More Up, Then the Big Down Smith -The ingredients for a classic head and shoulders topping pattern in the stock market are all present. That suggests one more rise and then a massive grinding move down to 2009 lows. Officially, of course, everything's peachy with the economy. Europe is fixed, China is booming, consumer confidence is rising, and we are encouraged to resume our borrow and spend ways as the economy will

not "double-dip" into recession. The economy will not slide into another recession, we are reassured constantly, even though roughly 80% of Americans don't think we ever left the recessionary quicksand. Please see "Two Scoop Special": Double-Dip Recession Guaranteed (May 21, 2010) for more … Exactly what drivers are there for future gains in corporate profits? I can't think of any, short of Martians landing and going on a shopping spree with gold they manufacture in their spacecraft. On the negative side, we have: 1. The rising dollar is a huge headwind to sales in the eurozone and elsewhere. 2. The low-hanging fruit of pushing the workforce to produce more output for the same salary/wages have all been picked. 3. The inventory build-out is done for everything but the iPhone 4 and iPad. 4. So-called "fiscal austerity" (when did living within one's means become some sort of brutual "austerity"? Talk abour propaganda!) in the eurozone and U.S. states will remove tens of billions of dollars from corporate sales. 5. Global overcapacity is alive and well. There is overcapacity in everything manufactured except the iPhone 4, and that will be in glut by 2011 as well. 6. Uncle Sam is not distributing trillions of dollars quite as freely. There seems to be some glimmer of awareness that there could be consequences of squandering trillions of borrowed dollars on essentially worthless projects such as occupying Iraq, inflating the housing market by socializing the entire mortgage market, propping up Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA, etc. 7. Housing is rolling over now that the socialized mortgage market has been tentatively allowed to go off life-support (it is wheezing and turning blue in the face, not signs of vibrant health). 8. There is no pricing power anywhere once stimulus-goosed demand declines to organic demand (flat to down) …

If you tried to buy support in your favorite names this week, you got your hands cut up. I’ll continue to rely on the understanding of my own emotions as they have served me well. When we opened higher on Monday morning I knew I was in the right place, cash, as the market was just way overbought. If you bought most relative strength names last week, by the end of this week you were well underwater. So where do we go from here? I’ve got no clue, the market is a mess, the charts are a mess, and the long bond is about to break out. If that happens all bets are off, we could see an “event”. If the smart money is lining up at the exits and moving into bonds, there’s a good chance they see something coming down the pipe …
SUITING UP FOR A POST-DOLLAR WORLD John Browne ‘The global financial crisis is playing out like a slow-moving, highly predicable stage play. In the current scene, Western governments are caught between the demands of entitled welfare beneficiaries and the anxiety of bondholders who fear they will be stuck with the bill. As the crisis reaches an apex, prime ministers and presidents are forced into a Sophie's choice between social unrest and bankruptcy. But with the "Club Med" economies set to fall like dominoes, the US Treasury market is not yet acting the role we would have anticipated. Our argument has always been that the US benefits from its reserve-currency status, allowing it to accumulate unsustainable debts for an unusually long period without the immediate repercussions of inflation or higher borrowing costs. But this false sense of security may be setting us up for a truly monumental crash. There is fresh evidence that time is running out for the dollar-centric global monetary order. In fact, central banks outside the US are already making swift and discrete preparation for a post-dollar era.To begin, the People's Bank of China has just this week decided to permit a wider trading range between the yuan and the dollar. This is the first step toward ending the infernal yuan-dollar peg. While the impetus behind this abrupt change remains a mystery, I have a sneaking suspicion that, as my colleague Neeraj Chaudhary explained in his commentary last week, the nationwide labor strikes were a prime motivator. In response to the 2008 credit crunch, the Fed printed so many dollars that the People's Bank of China was forced to drive Chinese inflation into double digits to maintain the peg. The pain has fallen on China's workers, who have seen their wages stagnate while prices for everything from milk to apartments have skyrocketed. This week's move indicates that, regardless of its own policy motives, the Communist Party can no longer afford to keep pace with the dollar's devaluation. The result will be a shift in wealth from America to China, which may trigger a long-anticipated run on the dollar, while creating investment opportunities in China. Just days before China's announcement, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev rattled his monetary sabre by telling the press of his intention to lead the world toward a new monetary order based on a broad basket of currencies. Giving strength to his claim, the Central Bank of Russia announced that it would be adding Canadian and Australian dollars to its reserves for the

first time. Analysts suggest that the IMF may follow suit. While Russia floats in the limbo between hopeless kleptocracy and emerging economy, it does possess vast natural resources and a toe-hold in both Europe and Asia. In other words, it will be a strategically important partner for China as it tries to cast off dollar hegemony. Speaking of Europe, the major powers there are moving toward a post-dollar world by rejecting President Obama's calls to jump on America's debt grenade. The prescriptions coming from Washington translate loosely to: our airship is on fire, so why don't you light a candle under yours so that we may crash and burn together. Given that dollar strength is largely seen as a function of euro weakness (as Andrew Schiff discussed in our most recent newsletter, debt troubles in the eurozone's fringe economies have created a distorted confidence in the greenback. However, as you might imagine, Europe has higher priorities than being America's fall guy. Led by an ever-bolder Germany, the European states are wisely choosing not to throw themselves on our funeral pyre, but to wisely clean house in anticipation of China's rise. In another ominous sign for the dollar, the Financial Times reported Wednesday that after two decades as net sellers of gold, foreign central banks have now become net buyers. What's more, more than half of central bank officials surveyed by UBS didn't think the dollar would be the world's reserve in 2035. Among the predicted replacements were Asian currencies and the euro, but - by far - the favorite was gold. This is supported by Monday's revelation by the Saudi central bank that it had covertly doubled its gold reserves, just about a year after China made a similar admission. There is no reason to assume these are isolated incidents, or that the covert trade of dollars for gold doesn't continue. To the contrary, this is compelling evidence that foreign governments are outwardly supporting the status quo while quietly preparing for the dollar's almost-inevitable devaluation. What people like Paul Krugman believe to be a return to medieval economics may, in fact, be the wave of the future. In peacetime, hardened troops will likely tolerate a blowhard general for an extended period; but when the artillery opens up with live ordnance, an ineffectual leader risks rapid demotion. The newspapers are now riddled with hints that foreign governments have lost faith in Washington and the dollar reserve system. It seems to me only natural that after a century of war, inflation, and socialism, the next hundred years would belong to those people who hold the timeless values of hard money and fiscal prudence. Unfortunately, our policymakers are not those people.’

Earlier this year, Russell warned that the stock market was once again becoming grossly overvalued despite its relentless new highs. Pragmatic Capitalism June 24, 2010 Richard Russell has grown very vocally bearish in recent months. Earlier this year, Russell warned that the stock market was once again becoming grossly overvalued despite its relentless new highs. He has maintained that the bear market never ended and that the world is far too indebted to exit the bear market. He also believes the bear will not end until all fiat currencies have failed. Although I disagree with him on many aspects of the micro I agree with his larger macro outlook. This bear market is not over. The secular bear market lives on. Mr. Russell thinks we might be on the verge of a terrible collapse: “We’re now in the process of building one of the largest tops in stock market history. The result, I think, will be the most disastrous bear market since the ‘30s, and maybe worse. Question: “What could possibly be behind such a bear market?” you ask. “The stock market is stirring up optimism on a weekly, if not daily basis, by not falling apart.” Answer: This is the “rest” or “dead zone” I was talking about. Bear markets don’t conclude in a day, a week or a month. Months will go by, often adding to the bulls’ optimism.I think the key element behind this great bear market will be the complete destruction of all fiat currencies. This has been a long time coming. Fiat currencies are “wealth” created by man. They are created without sacrifice, without labor, without risk, and without sweat. Basically they are an immoral device, created by secretive bankers. If you watch the figures carefully, you’ll note the subtle deterioration. For instance, the advance-decline ratio, although up slightly for the week, had a relatively weak performance with the Dow up several hundred points over the course of the week. And we broke the trendline in May (see the chart below showing the cumulative advance-decline line for

With the Dow still stuck below the psychologically important 10,000 level and all three major U.S. markets trading beneath their 200-day moving averages (MA), the bearish backdrop is clear.

Why To Question the 2010 Stock Market Rally [Why To Question the 2010 Stock Market Rally – Web Site Archived with Charts Click Here - In the past year, we've written a lot about the similarity between the rally of early 1930 and the one we had through April of this year. The early 1930 rally came after the market had fallen nearly 50% in the fall of 1929. The spring 1930 rally took the market up nearly 50% again, to a level that was only about 20% below the previous peak. That rally, of course, was also the biggest sucker's rally in history. After the market peaked in April 1930, it crashed again, eventually ending up down 89% from the 1929 high and more than 80% from the 1930 high. The market did not reach the 1930 high again for another quarter of a century. The rally that recently ended in April 2010 came after a crash that was actually slightly more severe than the 1929 crash (53% versus 48%). It took the market up nearly 80% from the low!

european central banks intervened to shore up the ever more worthless euro, buying into that fraudulent wall street b*** s*** story that that ‘s a good thing, rallying stocks off their lows. It is amazing how dumb europe has become so quickly.

POST MORTEM AND REVIEW Ricky: A post mortem is in order. The elements of this worldwide con game are remarkably simple, not complex at all. Apparently you only need a few things to make a mockery of the entire global economic system, and big banks garnered these few important things through “regulatory capture”: 1) Unregulated, unenforced rules (particularly for derivatives) 2) license to “mark to model” (assign your own values to your assets) 3) ability to peg present value to irrational expected future returns (based on unlimited, exponential growth) 4) infinite leverage (no effective requirements for reserve capital in unregulated “shadow” markets) 5) massive size, so that the bank is "too big to fail" 6) non-transparency and non-accountability. SELL IN MAY AND GO AWAY! THE FORECASTS: Harry Dent, Jr. Economy will be in a Depression by 2011 The worst of this next depression is likely to hit between mid-2010 and mid2013, especially around early 2011, but if the banking system continues to implode a deep downturn or depression could begin sometime in 2009 instead of 2010.

Napier’s research indicates (and I paraphrase) that: The S&P 500 will Decline to 400 by 2014 (the Dow 30 to 3800) The S&P 500 will then undergo a major crash that will see U.S. equity prices bottom at almost 50% below current levels (i.e. to 400 or less; the Dow 30 to 3800 or less) sometime around 2014 as Tobin’s “q” drops to 0.3 signaling the end of the bear market, as it has done at the end of the four largest U.S. market declines in 1921, 1932, 1949 and 1982.

But I also believe its scope is beyond just the CIA with many complicit within the corrupted 3 branches of u.s. government (fed judges, us attorneys, illegal system, etc.) plus the military and private big money, ie., Goldman Sachs / wall street men, etc., among other organized crime. america is defacto bankrupt in every way!

Most, including sam alito of the u.s. supreme court, concerning drug money laundering and obstruction of justice in the 3rd circuit ( also maryanne trump barry who covered-up drug money laundering through her brother’s casinos in a civil RICO case) should have gone to or belong in jail. Contrary to popular belief, they do it for the money, personal money, big, cash, untraceable money. The fog of war is great for such things (360 tons $100 bills flown into Iraq and missing, etc.).

There must be such things as parallel universes (I don’t really believe that, because there isn’t) or how else do you explain the disconnect between reality, current and prospective, and the wet dreams posited to keep the war funding / corporate welfare programs alive in collectively what has already become a trillion dollar boondoggle (not counting prospective medical costs, etc.) and promises to go much higher. Even israel apologist Cohen of The Washington Post alludes to the Vietnam analogy. However, even if there were real goals beyond the poppy / heroin trade which the Taliban had all but eradicated (there isn’t); even if america wasn’t defacto bankrupt (america is); even if america wasn’t killing innocent civilians in large numbers (war criminal nation america is); even if america’s allies haven’t similarly helped to bankrupt themselves by way of this war (they have); even if I hadn’t told you so (I did) ….. this war still was, is, and remains a very bad idea! Afghan war overtakes Vietnam to become the longest conflict in U.S. history Mail Online | The war entered its 104th month yesterday, with 30,000 American troops being deployed in the first half of this year alone.

How does anyone take the u.s. seriously in light of their credibility problems, war crimes, etc.? What nuke technology israel didn’t steal from the u.s., the u.s. gave them along with missile, armaments, etc.. and paid for with taxpayer money that u.s. taxpayers and the defacto bankrupt nation don’t have. It's time to expel israel from the UN Without doubt, the israeli attack on the Gaza-bound "Freedom Flotilla" in the dawn of Monday, May 31, 2010 is

one of the most savage crimes in recent history. It seems the ruling power in Tel Aviv has been afflicted with a variant of mad cow disease; otherwise, how could it be so cruel to unleash such a beastly raid on the "Mavi Marmara," the Turkish flagship of a flotilla carrying medical and humanitarian supplies to the hapless people of Gaza Strip? The israeli Spin-Machine in Overdrive: dershowitz to the Rescue? Armed Israeli commandos, the elite of the elites, rappelled to the deck of a Turkish ship carrying humanitarian relief supplies to the 1.5 million prisoners in the Gaza concentration camp. You think Iraq was bad? Invading Iran ‘would be lunacy’ Ivan Eland, Director of the Center on Peace and Liberty at the Independent Institute in Washington DC, gives his opinion on new sanctions imposed on Iran. I include the first two comments to the foregoing headline: Billo Says: June 11th, 2010 at 6:15 am Lunacy? Keep in mind that this country is run and controlled by lunatics. Our press government and military seem to take their orders from Israel. Isarel wants to be known as a pack of “mad dogs. Do we want “mad dogs” controlling us? Here we see a bunch of phony accusations against Iran just like we did in the run up to the bogus wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and now Pakistan. The boy has cried wold ten thousand times. It’s time to identify the “lunatics” and kindly take away the car keys. If you won’t let your friends drive drunk, why do we let a bunch of “lunatic” enemies run this place. Glen Reply: June 11th, 2010 at 6:47 am Lunacy it would be. But it is also to their great credit that the Iranians have not made their own threats. Everyone knows there are 3 WMD threats, Nuclear Biological and chemical. The scariest of which is Biological. Any attack done under the threat of immediate biological retaliation would deter only the insane. Watch out america home of the insane, home of the leaders who want an 80% population reduction.

General McChrystal’s Burning Contempt for the Puppet Obama The farce that is the war in Afghanistan is coming apart at the seams. General

Stanley McChrystal’s sharp comments about Obama, Biden, and the administration published by Rolling Stone are not so much about disrespect, as the script-reading corporate media talking heads would have it, but rather about a policy in disarray in Afghanistan. Gaza blockade illegal, must be lifted — UN rights official Israeli blockade of Gaza unsustainable: White House US Jewish opinion and the ‘Beinart moment’ The controversial book, The Israel Lobby, in which the political scientists, John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, argued that US foreign policy has been hijacked by organized Zionism went strangely unnoticed by the leading journal of American intellectual opinion, the New York Review of Books. Doubts Grow Over Israel’s Value as U.S. Ally Jim Lobe | The notion is that Israel and its actions have since the Cold War increasingly become a “strategic liability” to U.S. interests in the region.

In 1948, U.S. Secretary of Defense James Forrestal, an opponent of the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine, warned that, even though failure to go along with the Zionists might cost President Truman the states of New York, Pennsylvania, and California, it was about time that somebody should pay some consideration to whether we might not lose the United States. Mr. Forrestal was absolutely correct! Isn’t that exactly what’s happened to defacto bankrupt america in intractable decline. TIME TO REVOKE AND NULLIFY THE BALFOUR DECLARATION AND ABROGATE THE CREATION OF THE NATION STATE OF ISRAEL IN THE INTERESTS OF FAIRNESS, JUSTICE, PEACE AND PROSPECTIVE PROSPERITY FOR THIS WORLD! OOOOH! ISRAEL NOW IN FAVOR OF NUKES IN THE MIDDLE EAST IN SUDDEN SHIFT IN POLICY TO FAVOR IRAN IN A VERY BIG WAY! ISRAEL SEES THE LIGHT AND SIDES WITH IRAN ON NUCLEAR ISSUE; ESSENTIALLY SAYS TO THE WORLD AND IRAN ‘TO PRESS ON WITH NUCLEAR AMBITIONS’. The yardarm is the remedy Dozens of our friends and comrades, of wonderful compassionate activists are dead and wounded in the pirate attack in the high seas on humanitarian aid boats. This is a dreadful crime that will forever be remembered and should be punished. The Israeli pirates attacked the humanitarian aid Freedom Flotilla in the international waters over 150 km out of their territorial waters. The boats carried no arms; the participants strictly adhered to Ghandian mode by asking the Greek and Cyprus authorities to search the boats to avoid later claims that they were armed.

A Plague Upon The World: The USA is a “Failed State” Dr. Paul Craig Roberts | The American people are lost in la-la land. They have no idea that their civil liberties have been forfeited. US citizen killed on flotilla reportedly shot four times in head Raw Story | A forensic report said Furkan Dogan was shot at close range, with four bullets in his head and one in his chest, according to the Anatolian news agency. The explanation foisted off on the americans by war criminal israelis is probably something on the order of ‘they just wanted to make sure they missed him’. Roberts: ‘AIPAC purchases US elections’ Russia Today | Paul Craig Roberts says that there will be nothing that is going to be done by the United States to change the relationship with Israel. ‘US funding terrorist group against Iran’ Press TV | A member of a terrorist organization operating in Iran says that a US State department radio station originally put him in touch with the group. Paul Craig Roberts: Government Abandoned Vietnam POWs Kurt Nimmo | John McCain worked overtime to make sure Vietnam POWs never came home. I think the even bigger story vis-à-vis mccain is: ‘Did you know that that so-called "american heroe" john mccain was referred to by his fellow pows in Vietnam as something akin to the "songbird" inasmuch as he was constantly "singing" to his Viet-Cong captors to curry favor and better treatment? This has been documented with authority by Colonel David Hackworth. The same violates military code/protocol (other soldiers have been court-martialed for far less) click Here, Here. [ ] But, you see, this covered up scenario, compromizing the false facade of far less than a heroe, is exactly what a criminal (lie of a) nation as america loves and encourages (get everyone's hands dirty so no-one dares to rectify same, ie., bush, sr., clinton, bush, jr.). That is, "toe the (corrupt, propagandized) line", become a criminal, or be exposed, prosecuted, and/or ruined; and, hasn't anyone asked how "wall street" has been "spared the spotlight" (and even was accorded protective legislation from their criminal culpability) and focus of inquiry, attention, and prosecution despite being the primary beneficiaries financial and otherwise of these scams (you know the wall street motto, "churn and earn"; huge conflicts of interest if not outright fraud)…’ Coalition wants UK space lift-off [ Don’t make me laugh! ] Israel’s Nukes Out of the Shadows Israel faces unprecedented pressure to abandon its official policy of “ambiguity” on its possession of nuclear weapons as the international community meets at the United Nations in New York this week to consider banning such arsenals from the Middle East.

Sinking of the Cheonan: A Classic False Flag Operation Russia Today | Sinking of the warship was really intended to convince Japan not to move US forces off Okinawa as well as divert the attention of Americans from the dire economic situation at home. . Israel: IDF Troops Who Murdered Unarmed Innocent People Are ‘Brave Heroes’ The government of israel, aided by many quarters of the international media, is attempting to spin today’s deadly IDF assault on a humanitarian aid ship carrying supplies to Gaza as the fault of the murdered activists on board the vessel, ludicrously characterizing machine-gun carrying Israeli troops who killed over a dozen innocent people as the victims of the incident. Murder on the high seas JERUSALEM: Israeli marines stormed aid ships bound for Gaza on Monday and at least 10 rights activists were killed, triggering a diplomatic crisis and an emergency session of the UN Security Council. European nations, as well as the United Nations and Turkey, voiced shock and outrage at the bloody end to the international campaigners' bid to break Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip

[This is all too true and real; and I’m surprised this hasn’t gotten more attention, coverage … well, maybe not that surprised ]. "What this means is that Neanderthals are not totally extinct. In some of us, they live on," Paabo … With regard to that extinction thing, I’d say they’re still working on it (ultimately, decades, extinction, the distinction, without a difference). Actually, prior to studying the compelling subject of Biological Anthropology (Michael Park text), I too had some misconceptions about the group known as Neandertals (recent spelling drops the ‘h’) and actually mis-referenced same by the stereotypical image of members of said clade even as the debate continues as to whether they are within the species homo sapiens or a separate species. I believe these to be distinctions without important differences, so humble the origins and evolution of man truly are. Parenthetically, I wonder what that anthropological scientist Heidi Klum thinks on the subject. Neanderthals, Humans Interbred, DNA Proves Signs of Neanderthals Mating With Humans - Neanderthals mated with some modern humans after all and left their imprint in the human genome. Genome hints humans, Neanderthals rolled in prehistoric hay You're a Neanderthal: Genes say yes — a little bit (AP) Neanderthals and people interbred, fossil analysis finds For more info on man’s humble beginnings, see here Previously I wrote: FOUND: MISSING LINK BETWEEN APES AND MAN....

I previously wrote: To Learn More About From Whence Man Came, This Link's For You [To the Professor at the beginning of the course]

10-5-09 Postscript: Professor *****, I felt compelled to thank you again for the add; not to curry your favor but indeed to express profound thanks inasmuch as this is probably the last formal course at a formal educational institution I'll ever take; and among the most important. While I had bought at discount a library-discarded 1993 Anthropology by Embers text, though meaning to read same never quite got to it. I am astounded by the substantial amount of time involved in the evolutionary process, not that I ever stopped to think about it, and one must come away with the sense of 'and all that...for this?'. This course should be required curriculum along with psychology, sociology, etc., but probably won't be owing to what is, as it should be, a very humbling educational experience for any member of the human race. Regards, Al Peia [Interestingly, my intuitive (but unstudied) thoughts prior to closer examination of the compelling subject of Biological Anthropology remain what I believe to be the correct scenario. Specifically, very simply stated, for the most part, the more “enlightened” (but not by much; by mutation, accident, luck, intervention, etc.) left the unvarying confines of their Sub-Saharan origins, experienced diverse new environs, challenges, etc., experienced what has been described (by neuroscientists, psychologists, etc.) as neurogenesis in varying degrees and forms thereby over time, which trait was selected for and is consistent with the purported multi-regional evolutionary model which does not overtly contradict ultimately, initial African origins. Races, sub-species, missing links, etc., are subsumed in this very humbling and sorrowful tale of the “dawn of man”.] [Abolish the corrupt, costly, economically wasteful lifetime extravagantly appointed federal courts - see RICO case [ naltyofperjury.pdf ] Don’t Tread On Me: A Refresher Course on the Constitution
