"out of work construction workers"
This may have been true during the economic down turn of 1998.

I was one of those out of work construction workers with a mining background that went back to mining then.

I worked mining any time there was no construction work and knew of a number of others that did.
Many of use had the skills to mine and the will to work instead of drawing unemployment

This down turn i know of no construction workers turned miners with the dredging ban.

When honest, well-meaning people(ABrink) find a worthwhile article to share with others on our website, I am thrilled. Overcoming ignorance, which is pervasive throughout society today, continues to be the best way to stimulate actions to slow, stop our harmful behaviors. ABrink found an article and was kind enough to report it to distant friends.

BUT the new California gold rush article is inaccurate at best or reckless or willfully misleading at worse. The key words in the first paragraph are “hopeful amateur miners”.

Suggesting that “hardcore pros” (does the author mean hardcore amateurs?) are using dredging pumps and standing in hip waders while balancing portable (gas driven) pumps in May on the American River is ludicrous. Due to demagoguery the California legislature wrote and passed a law that prohibits all dredging in California waterways. The rationale is ridiculous yet our Governor signed it.

Claiming that “out of work construction workers” have moved to the mountains and are opening up mines, I guess without mandatory permits is insane. It isn’t happening in any rush. The biggest problem facing gold mining out west is California according to those few of us with a history in mining. The cost of and delays in acquiring permits to operate are legendary.

The author has confused filing a mining claim with the BLM is the equivalent with issuing a mining permit. If those truly ignorant people working to revoke one of our greatest opportunities for all Americans over 18 years of age (the ability to stake a claim under the 1872 Mining Law), will out, the global corporate powers will take over our domestic natural resources. It will be either a monopoly or oligopoly, take your choice, Either way Americans and America are the losers.

BY the way, the Mad Hedge Fund Trader closes his article with a pitch to all those folks who cannot go stand and pan gold in California to buy an EFT. Surprise, surprise.

An article by the 'Mad Hedge Fund Trader' suggests that California is being swept into a new gold rush, which - if true - should help the 16:1.

I have to compliment Mike Miller's Statement from The President of the 16 to One. I totally agree.
In all the counties of California, there is the Civil Grand Jury Process for reviewing the county and city government agencies for their responsibility to their prescribe duties, and their relations to the public. We as a state do not have this policy at the state level.

This is a rewrite to clarify confusion of a previous comment.

There is no such thing as a bill with the label of HB 1388.
It is either HR or SB.

There is a HR 1388 For development of Rare Earth Elements.

Below is the Federal Registry of exactly what The President authorized in 2009 not 2011.

"Presidential Determination No. 2009-15 of January 27, 2009

Unexpected Urgent Refugee and Migration Needs Related To Gaza
Memorandum for the Secretary of State
By the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including section 2(c)(1) of the Migration and Refugee Assistance Act of 1962 (the ``Act''), as amended (22 U.S.C. 2601), I hereby determine, pursuant to section 2(c)(1) of the Act, that it is important to the national interest to furnish assistance under the Act in an amount not to exceed $20.3 million from the United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund for the purpose of meeting unexpected and urgent refugee and migration needs, including by contributions to international, governmental, and nongovernmental organizations and payment of administrative expenses of Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration of the Department of State, related to humanitarian needs of Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza.
You are authorized and directed to publish this memorandum in the Federal Register.

From Bob Chapman's International Forecaster, June 15, 2011.


HB 1388 PASSED!!!!!! [While America has 22.4% unemployment.]


You just spent $20,000,000 to move members/supporters of Hamas, a terrorist organization, to the United States; housing, food, transportation, the whole enchilada. 

HB   1388 PASSED

Whether you are an Obama fan, or not, EVERYONE IN THE U.S. Needs to know.....
H.R. 1388 was passed, behind our backs.    You may want to read about it...  
It   wasn't mentioned on the news... Just went by on the ticker tape at the bottom of the CNN screen.

Obama funds $20M in taxpayer dollars to immigrate Hamas Refugees to the USA. This is the news that did not, and will not, make the headlines.

By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in "migration assistance" to the Palestinian refugees and "conflict victims" in Gaza.
The "presidential determination" which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States, was signed and appears in the Federal Register.

Few on Capitol Hill, or in the media, took note that the order provides a free ticket replete with housing, transportation and food allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support to the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the parliamentary election of January 2006.

Now we learn that he is allowing thousands of Palestinian refugees to move to, and live in, the US at American taxpayer expense.
These important, and insightful, issues are being "lost" in the blinding bailouts and "stimulation” packages.

Doubtful?

Mike, We know the reasons for the
turndown, among the various are:
There are still "quotas"; You
looked at them "crosseyed";
the lenders are still hanging on
to their cash,literally, so the loans offered (but not made) are
for publicity purposes, purely;
The folks we need are like dec'd
former stockholder, Bernard Baruch.

Shovel Ready was the initial cry when the government announced it planned to release billions of dollars to excite the economy. The Sixteen to One was shovel ready. If you remember, I was negotiating a bank loan guaranteed by the US Department of Agriculture. My expectations of success in getting the loan rose after each meeting with the bank and federal people. Oops, the September 2008 crash effectively stopped our paperwork. The USDA affirmed its commitment, but I could not find a bank or other lending agency to make the loan even though it would be 100% secured. One banker said the reason why banks can’t loan is because of federal banking enforcement. I gave up looking for a loan. Part of the federal government wanted to create jobs and part of the federal government was a job killer.

Shovel Ready is the cry again. Jobs are necessary to turn our country around towards prosperity and fun. Yes, fun! The Sixteen to One is shovel ready but with perks unlike most other shovel ready projects. Jobs will produce gold, which is new wealth. New wealth is how prosperity increases. Gold also creates confidence in others to look at California’s serious mineral wealth. Come on you rich guys, have a little fun you’re your money. Go hunt for gold.

Twenty-five years ago California had a thriving mining industry. The wealth brought from the earth sifted through many hands. This industry spends money. If anyone doubts gold’s affects of society and individuals, please read some history.

We have an at or near spot market
at $1,500/troy oz. There should
be hordes of new investors climbing over themselves to get on the bandwagon with new monies for stock at that "spot" level.
Who would ever think it would get to such a level?We need investors
hopefully with VISION!!

U.S., Afghan Officials Discuss Extending Military Presence for Decades

The Guardian newspaper reports U.S. and Afghan officials are locked in secret talks about a deal which could result in U.S. troops, spies and air force power remaining in Afghanistan for decades to come—well beyond the scheduled 2014 withdrawal. The talks come at a time of growing opposition to the war from both Republican and Democratic lawmakers. The Afghan war is already the longest war in U.S. history.

With gold at $1500, you would think that there is, at least, one creative mind in Sacramento that's not asleep who could envision the benefit to the State for supporting and bringing back the gold mining industry.

It looks like Quebec has a well thought out plan to increase jobs and its revenue in the years ahead:

Quebec Premier Charest In New York To Promote Plan Nord, Seek Investment

14 June 2011, 5:24 p.m.
By Terry Wooten
Of Kitco News
http://www.kitco.com/


New York - (Kitco News) -- Quebec Premier Jean Charest pitched his Plan Nord for a comprehensive development of the province's northern lands to U.S. investors Tuesday, outlined its details before the Foreign Policy Association, and was given the organization’s Statesman Award.

Charest launched the 25-year plan on May 9 and that he envisions it will generate more than $80 billion in investments and create or consolidate 20,000 jobs a year in Northern Quebec. Charest was in New York Monday and Tuesday to meet with investors. He said he plans to go to Europe next week for meetings in several countries.A trip to Asia to pitch the project in China and other Far Eastern countries will be scheduled later.

The premier said investor reception in New York was “positive” and he attributed the reaction to the preparation of the 25-year plan.

Charest noted Plan Nord should generate $14 billion in revenue for the government and for Quebec society.

I guess they don't like to talk about the $11 billion that was stolen from taxpayers in Iraq. It is the biggest cash holdup in the country's history. It's an old story, just before everything folds the Treasury is looted by those in power.

The Bam admin today went on record saying that they "didn't know what shovel-ready" really meant in today's terms when they went on record touted shovel-ready jobs as the instant fix to the man-made over-extension (D) in housing derivatives....

Huh???

Remember their targeted 'stimulus money' ....that 6-8 billion $$s....twice....to fix things with shovel-ready jobs.....

Make no mistake...they knew they were siphoning our money through a slush fund towards public-sector unions in the name of "Shovel Ready" jobs.

Well, I've read a lot. And I'm pretty smart.

This is a very good time for us all to look closely into their motives....their definition of getting the shovel ready, and especially if you're from Chicago.

Shovels for what??? Oh, yeah, there is that.

As for real REAL ready jobs for the shovel....this small town in Alleghany has a few shovels ready to go to work, if only the regulators and the non-freedom crowd get's their asses off of ours.

The greatest risk of all is having a middleman between you and your money.

Bob Chapman comments from yesterday:

The world’s biggest bond fund is flat US securities and is short Treasuries. Commercial entities endowments, nations and individuals worldwide, are buying gold and silver to protect their assets. These moves are moves of no confidence and we believe they are correct.
They are afraid they will not be able to access their assets. Will they be able to remove their funds from banks anytime they want? Banks change the rules at will. They do what they want. Recently in France its biggest bank cut cash withdrawals by 50%. That can be done in America as well. There are laws that allow such restrictions. Do not forget the bank has loaned out your deposit and then some. The average bank today has lent 40 times its deposit base. That is called fractional banking and the historical lending rate is 9 to 1. As you can see banks are way over extended. They function by deceiving the public and there may soon some time when you can only get part of your funds or perhaps none at all. In the case of bankruptcy or major bank bankruptcies the FDIC would have to request funds from the Congress and Treasury; funds they do not have. Their only alternative would be to print money, which would cause more inflation and dilution. Purchasing power would fall as would the dollar and inflation would rise further. That means you only keep three months operating expenses in the bank and do not own CDs. Banks today are very vulnerable, as are other thrift institutions. Many are already bankrupt and are being kept afloat by the Fed. Many are keeping two sets of books. If you were to do that you would go to jail. Remember, that when banks fail and the FDIC pays off it is you the taxpayer that is bailing out the depositor.

A congressman (D) recently explained all this: "QE2, and what's more, QE3 is no doubt the next absolute and necessary answer to our debt crisis, since once QE3 is passed, it will no longer be a crisis."

HUH???

No, not a direct quote, but paraphrased from the guy that actually had the onions to say that there isn't a problem since the Fed can print money to cover our debt.

HUH???

From Jim Sinclair's website, http://www.jsmineset.com:

"Joe America is largely unfazed, however. Sure, there are pockets of hurt, and there are many, many people who have re-evaluated their personal situations and have embraced individual austerity. Yet in the aggregate, we’re back on the credit card.

It is hard to discern at this point whether the uptick in borrowing is for essentials or discretionary goods. Based on the anecdotal evidence, it is likely both. People have been trained to borrow, make minimum payments, and to live as a servant to the creditor.

When you think about it, the ‘money’ that has been used to create this servitude has been created from nothing, yet must be repaid with something very real – the sweat of one’s brow. Hardly seems like a fair deal to me, yet we not only accept it, we demand it. Have we really spent any time thinking about these matters?

It is almost funny when I look at the latest opinion polls regarding the national debt. The vast majority of Americans think that Congress needs to put the country’s fiscal house in order, yet most of those same people refuse to do it in their own backyard.
