    Do you actually believe that VNR distribution yield will be as high as LINE and/or BBEP?

  • President Obama's Middle Class Economics Stimulus: State Of The Union Address 2015 [View article]
    During the G. Bush era unemployment was low, and with B. Obama unemployment was consistently higher, until 2014. Following the 2008 banking crash, why the delay in restoring jobs-- when wall street and banking recovered rather quickly? Fact is, Obama destroyed confidence with added regulation, with trashing the coal industry, with his handling of the Gen. Motors crisis, with Obama Care, etc., and then bloated banking with free money for greater leverage. And note all the candy he attached to the Middle Class speech making; adding to labor costs does not create jobs. My thought is that the economy is benefiting from EU problems and is preparing for a boom when the next president comes into office. It has little to do with Obama.

  • Central Fund Of Canada Has Never Been A Better Buy Than Right Now [View article]
    Not an expert, but there seems to be a long treadline that intersects where CEF is now. CEF also held at 8 three years in a row. And one might assume that a bottom is somewhere in this realm: 8 to 11.

    Added, interest rates and inflation are not the only things to watch. The dollar reserve currency is at risk, evident with counter measures against the ruble. Also, some in the EU are rethinking the sanctions on Russia. Anything could happen and suddenly.

    Opportunity knocks; I agree with Mr. Rohrbaugh.

  • Vladimir Putin Puts 'Sanctions' On Visa And MasterCard [View article]
    And who first started sanctions? And who is pushing Russia toward isolation? All because DC and NATO could not make a clear sweep of the Russian warm water naval base, after causing a fracture in the Ukrainian government, thinking to easily capture oil and mineral lands for the West, lands that WWII German armies failed to conquer.
    Old fashioned conquer and take over was reinvented in the regime change game and privitizing resources for western corporations. Its getting to be old stuff, understood except among blind folded Americans.

  • The Drums Of War Are Beating: Prepare Your Portfolio For An Escalation In Ukraine [View article]
    Note Joe Lunchbox's reference "Alas Babylon" which reflects ancient Babylon's fall. But before its fall, note the method of taking over nations: reading in part, "... your merchants were the great men of earth, because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery" (18:23).

    The truth is getting out-- its not Russia, its us. And it is our administration that "does not have your interests at heart." Its all for globalization and privatizing resources for corporate interests. One senator recently slipped and said that Russia is next.

  • The Stars (And Russian Troops) Are Aligned For Higher Gold Prices [View article]
    Concerning inflation, Japan intends to raise wages, the first tiime in six years, and the reason surprised me. It was to contain deflation. And now I know what the US wage talk is all about, and it will some time before I become concerned with inflation.

  • The Stars (And Russian Troops) Are Aligned For Higher Gold Prices [View article]

    With sniper fire that killed demonstrators and threats that led the president to flee Ukraine, one could argue that Russia had cause for concern and moved to stabilize Crimea—and one could hope for the incursion to soon blow over. But alas, the West is anxious to tighten its grip on the old Soviet Union and stirred up opposition, exploited an opportunity to make Putin loose face, and by doing so the US and the West initiated a secondary crisis. And there are plenty of pundits that rely on fear for profit.

  • The Nuclear Option: Russia's Threat To Dump Treasuries [View article]
    I understood that Mr. Sergi Glazyer's suggestion to dump US bonds was predicated on US sanctions; and regardless of his failings, the idea is in the hopper. Further,
    1) With US sanctions, Russia may simply need to raise cash.
    2) With the CIA collaboration affecting another regime change ... a snow slide reaction against US reserve currency status might occur.
    3) The writer fails to consider that Russia has been supporting minority populations. as did secular nations of the Near East. But regime change = chaos.

  • Chimera: Don't Ignore These Red Flags [View article]
    Thanks to IncomeHunter for saying it as it is. Where there is smoke there is fire --and neither NLY nor CIM have moved effectively to put out the fire. So plenty of "red flags" are there.

    I held a stock during the 60s until it went bankrupt and my father, who was younger than I am now, never let me forget it. I learned.

    Don't be fooled by CIM insiders!
