US MARKETS

Seven months after the official announcement on 9/21/11 of “Operation Twist” not much progress has been made at the long end of the market to reduce yields. The yield on the 10-year T-note has gone from 1.88% to 2.3% and the 30-year bond went from 3.03% to 3.41%. The episode has been marred by hedge fund and sovereign selling, which has left the short end a little higher, but the long end much higher. The question now is how much did this cost the Fed for such disappointing results? Or in fact was this really their objective? We may never know, because the Fed hides what they do not want anyone to know. These results might not seem important but US Treasury instruments are the foundation of the global monetary system. If yields continue to increase, like they are, it forces the Fed into QE 3, which we believe is inevitable. Other nations are not cooperating, as we saw in January and February that US banks bought more government paper than they had in all of 2011. If this continues the banks will be forced to lend. That could cause a minor recovery and more inflation. That is not something the banks want to do. They want the safety of low yielding Treasuries that is why they still sit on $2 trillion in Treasuries. As of yet stock markets may be trending higher based on recovery, but we are yet to see a follow through. Recent statistics tell us generally speaking the public is out of the stock market. We believe because they do not see recovery either and many are listening to alternative radio and getting news from the Internet, which tells them of the massive markets manipulation that the US government and the Fed are engaged in. You cannot win unless you understand what they are up too.
The embargo sanctions against Iran we have spoken about unspokenly on the air and in this publication. We figured out long before almost all others that these moves had to be some of the stupidest in history. The elitists have this time shot themselves in both feet. SWIFT is very important, because it settles almost every instruction in US dollars. Denying the system to other currencies is foolish. The players in dollars can create something similar to swift code or have some other front for them. End running oil shipments are even easier. As a feeble answer the US will sell oil from its oil reserves to try to reduce prices. This action is nothing but smoke and mirrors.
It is no secret that municipalities all over America are in serious trouble. Their pension plans and those of companies are vastly underfunded and little is being done to solve the problem. In 1983, 62% of Americans had pension plans. Today that figure is 17%, but this is still a large group of future participants, who for the most part are not going to get what they paid for and some, will end up with nothing. The reason for municipal failures for the most part is that pension and health care plans were never properly funded, investment results were terrible and incompetence was the order of the day. Corporate managers did not do much better. We call this the pension bomb and it has finally arrived, late but lethal.
The terrible part about all this is that the pension plan you are counting on might not be there for you when you need it. You may also not be able to take it from the pension writer leaving you with absolutely no control. Being generally ignorant to most of these facts Americans have little put away personally for retirement. They are short close to $7 trillion.
For the next 20 years 10,000 baby boomers will retire every day, which presents a crisis of spectacular magnitude. Some will get partial checks from Social Security and pensions or perhaps nothing at all. Now you know why you have to invest into gold and silver coins, bullion and shares. They are your only protection. In addition if the Dow falls back to 6550, as it recently did, we could be looking at 50% losses in pension fund stock investments. Already the total amount of unfunded pension and health care obligations for just state and local governments in the US is $4.4 trillion. We hope you have gotten the message?
Unfortunately Spain is experiencing an accelerating fall in property prices that has been expected for some time. Spaniards expected higher prices, which turned out to be wishful thinking. The economy is saddled with depression. Unemployment is 23% and youth joblessness is close to 50%. Austerity reigns and all the seeds of revolution have been planted. In response at demonstrations the police have been brutal. If you want a violent revolution, that is the way to start it. As depression grows, so does discontent.
The banks mostly owned by outsiders are basket cases waiting for a bailout, which, of course, will be paid for by the people. We are talking about the fastest fall on record. Those prices fell 11.2% in the 4th quarter yoy, and versus 7.4% in the 3rd quarter.  This kind of fall is similar to what occurred in the US after the 2008 credit crisis. Banks that have been holding defaulted loans in construction and real estate worth $520 billion are far more than bankrupt. That is a monstrous debt and it will have to be dealt with along with sovereign debt of $1.5 trillion. That is not a pretty picture.
Spain’s public debt to GDP is now predicted to be 4.8%. They are not supposed to exceed 3% of GDP. Private sector debt, mainly the banks, have debt of more than 200% of GDP. Taking a lesson from Greece if the new administration cuts too much the depression will deepen, as will tax revenues as well as unemployment costs will accelerate. Bond rates have climbed even higher than those of Italy making the situation even wore. Like Greece, Portugal, Italy and Ireland be believe in time that Spain will have to default.
Spain’s PM Rojay in his recently stated position is saying we want more time to solve the problems. His challenge to the ECB and the euro zone members is do not push to hard and too far, or you will see a real banking crisis. We will just default like the rest of the weak members. It is obvious that newer politicians on the scene are not socialists in the European sense. They tend to be middle of the road and socialists on only certain issues. The lure of world government is not alluring to them, at least not presently. Europeans do not want the euro and perhaps not the EU as well. They were created to keep Germany from conquering the world. Connective alliances really have not worked even though they are still in place. Their failure gives Rojay an opportunity for challenge to the system. He seems, as well, to be giving assistance to Germany to allow it to exit the euro zone as well and perhaps the EU. We see little chance Germans will subsidize $3 trillion 
Not much is said about Switzerland, probably because they are outside the euro zone and the EU and they use the Swiss franc as a currency. The Swiss are major exporters and are dependent upon those exports. In the final quarter of 2011 exports fell 6.8% due to its strong currency. As a result the economy is headed for recession and deflation simultaneously. As long as the euro crisis continues you will see a flight to the Swiss franc by owners of euros. The SNB has been maintaining the franc at 1.20 to the euro and it remains to be seen if that can be continued. The Swiss and the Germans have to come to terms with their stronger economies and that is not going to change. All indications are that the Swiss are going to be soon touching on recession and Germany won’t be far behind, unless banks start lending to business.
Unemployment is increasing and retail sales are falling. Even exports within the euro zone fell 4.2%, as investments fell. As we have said before unless banks lend there can be no overall recovery. Falling employment and retail is taking Switzerland toward deflation. This is not good, because the Swiss could be the catalyst to take Europe and the world into deflation and perhaps even into depression.

Last week the Dow fell 1.1%, S&P fell 0.5%, Nasdaq 100 rose 0.6% and the Russell 2,000 was unchanged.  Cyclicals fell 2%; transports 2.5%; consumers 0.4% and utilities 0.4%. Banks fell 0.4%, as broker/dealers rose 0.3%. High tech gained 0.4%; semis rose 0.1% Internets gained 1.6% and biotech’s were unchanged. Gold bullion was about unchanged, the HUI fell 06% and the USDX fell 0.6% to 79.32.
The 2-year T-bill fell 1 bps to 0.35%; the 10-year T-notes fell 6 bps to 2.23%. The German 10-year bund fell 19 bps to 1.86%. 
The Freddie Mac 30-year fixed rate mortgage surged 16 bps to 4.08%. The 15’s rose 14 bps to 3.30%, the 1-year ARMs rose 5 bps to 2.84% and the 30-year jumbos rose 4 bps to 4.61%.
Fed credit fell $0.3 billion up 10.2% yoy. Fed holdings of central banks rose $57 billion ytd and $76 billion yoy, or 2.2%.
M2, narrow, money supply rose $12 billion to $9.813 trillion. That is up 8.7% ytd and 9.8% yoy.
Total money market fund assets fell $15.5 billion to $2.622 trillion.
Total commercial paper outstanding fell $5.6 billion to $931 billion.

All the people and all the king’s men that were playing for the long-awaited housing rebound were chagrined on Friday
February New Home sales fell 5k (to 25k, 2nd worst Feb; 60% not built yet) to 313k annualized; 325k was expected. Plus KBH reported ugly Q1 earnings…If Team Obama doesn’t produce a new scheme to boost housing soon, homebuilder stocks, which have more than doubled since October, will be very unhappy. 
We have warned for the past several weeks that just like last year, perverted seasonal adjustments have overstated economic strength in Q4 and Q1 due to the Crisis of 2008-2009; and this year, record warm weather is purloining future economic activity. 
The beneficial seasonal adjustments are about to turn negative. Be prepared!

Fed warned not to keep rates too low for too long. With Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke looking on from the audience, Masaaki Shirakawa, the governor of the Bank of Japan, and Jaime Caruana, the general manager of the Bank for International Settlements, said extremely easy policy is appropriate in response to a crisis but the costs of the policy rise as time goes by. He [the hypocritical Shirakawa] pointed to rising commodity prices as one of the unintended consequences of the Fed’s low rate policies.

Fitch: The Federal Reserve Bank of New York recently reported that as many as 27% of all student loan borrowers are more than 30 days past due. Recent estimates mark outstanding student loans at $900 billion- $1 trillion. Fitch believes that the recent increase in past-due and defaulted student loans presents a risk to investors in private student loan ABS, but not those in ABS trusts backed by FFELP loans. 
Several macroeconomic factors are putting pressure on student loan borrowers. The main ones are unemployment and underemployment. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates the current unemployment rate for people 20 to 24 years old at nearly 14% and for those 25 to 34 years old, 8.7%. Underemployment is difficult to measure…but it is likely having a negative impact…

Diana Olick: Housing Hype: Recovery Turns to Relapse? And then an email from a Realtor in New Jersey: “Just reviewed March buyer clicks, Google’s analytics on all the sites we monitor – March is turning out to be the weakest month since last October re: Buyer interest..”… 
Investors are still rushing into the market, with distressed sales making up a near-record 48.7 percent of sales in February on a three month moving average, according to a new report today from Campbell/Inside Mortgage Finance. Investors are now a full quarter of the market, and they are increasing their activity in short sales (when a lender allows the home to be sold for less than the value of the mortgage). 
Don’t get me wrong, investors buying up the distress is necessary to cleanse the market, but it is not real recovery. Mortgage originations are at a 12-year low, despite record low rates. Normal, “organic” home buyers, move-up owner occupants, are not flooding back into this market…

The Rich Get Even Richer [Thanks to Ben; too many Ivy profs ignore facts that contradict their biases.] 
In 2010…a dizzying 93 percent of the additional income created in the country that year, compared to 2009 — $288 billion — went to the top 1 percent of taxpayers, those with at least $352,000 in income. That delivered an average single-year pay increase of 11.6 percent to each of these households…the super rich got rich faster than the merely rich. In 2010, 37 percent of these additional earnings went to just the top 0.01 percent, a teaspoon-size collection of about 15,000 households with average incomes of $23.8 million. These fortunate few saw their incomes rise by 21.5 percent. The bottom 99 percent received a microscopic $80 increase in pay per person in 2010, after adjusting for inflation. The top 1 percent, whose average income is $1,019,089, had an 11.6 percent increase in income…

A senior House Republican on Monday accused President Obama of going back on promises he would not weaken U.S. missile defenses through negotiations with Russia after the president was overheard promising more concessions after his reelection. 
Rep. Michael R. Turner (R., Ohio), chairman of the House Armed Services subcommittee on strategic forces, sought an explanation for the overheard comments made by the president Monday in a discussion in Seoul with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev…Senate Republican Whip Jon Kyl criticized the president for promising concessions on missile defense.

Moody’s has slashed the credit ratings of more than $2.5bn of debt issued by Detroit in a move that could trigger payments related to its swap agreements, placing further pressure on the city’s precarious finances.  More than $2bn of Detroit’s debt was downgraded… by two notches to B2 from Ba3. A downgrade below Ba3 results in a termination of agreements that swap payments on a chunk of that debt from floating to fixed rates. That termination allows Detroit’s counterparties to demand a payment of $350m over the next seven years, the mayor’s office said…  Detroit has accumulated debts of more than $10bn, and its budget deficit could swell to $270m by the end of June.

WSJ: According to FactSet, at 10:57:28, orders placed through the BATS Global Markets came in well below where Apple had previously been trading. Orders first came in at $551.66 and microseconds later went as low as $542.80 before the stock was halted…Still, the issue occurs as BATS is having troubles of its own. Here’s what colleague David Benoit at Deal Journal reported: BATS has an alert on its website 2 

that it is “actively investigating an issue.” The exchange issued an alert at 10:48 a.m. that there were “system issues in symbols range A through BF.” 
4th UPDATE: CNBC is now reporting that Nasdaq is canceling the erroneous Apple trades made on the BATS exchange. [BATS pulled its IPO due to the fiasco.]

US MARKETS
We have been in and around the gold markets for 53 years and conditions have certainly changed, driven mainly by market manipulation of all markets as a result of the Executive Order, which created the “President’s Working Group on Financial Markets.” Those who doubt that are either on the government payroll one way or the other, or you are just too dumb to understand what is really going on. In spite of these machinations and ignorant naysayers the bull markets in gold and silver are still alive and well. What you are seeing are paper markets and the use of derivatives to effect short-term pricing, especially when negative events are about to occur. Those events are aided by naked shorting and illegal concentration in both gold and silver and the shares. Mind you, this is being done in a market to control it and in addition government and central banks relish stomping gold and silver into the ground. For years they hid what they were doing. Today their manipulations are in your face. These dramatic forced price falls are fortunately accompanied by heavy buying by China, Russia, India and others. All the elitists are doing is giving long-term investors an opportunity to purchase both metals at prices far below their real value. Official government inflation figures say gold should be selling at about $2,500 an ounce. Real inflation statistics would have gold selling today at almost $9,000. Such deliberate under pricing is accompanied by financial chaos in Europe and England, high oil prices that reflect the possibility of conflict in the Middle East, the results of $1.4 trillion in loans to 800 European banks, England on the edge of bankruptcy and the continual quantitative easing and things such as Operation Twist by the Federal Reserve. The official government line on statistics is all lies. We see one research report after another pandering to these falsities, which is next to worthless. The professionals and investors continue to use these bogus figures and continue to lose money in the process. 
There are few sellers in the physical gold and silver markets. The selling takes place in the paper markets. Demand worldwide for these metals as a store of value has never been stronger. Buyers are countries and flight capital from the Middle East and Asia. The traffic is very intriguing. In China the government promotes gold ownership and has thousands of outlets across the country, as does CIBC. They are called gold savings accounts. Just the opposite is true in the US, UK and Europe, where violation of privacy and freezing or confiscation of assets is possible. 
Last year demand for gold rose 20% worldwide and it could top $100 billion in 2012. We are seeing major demand as well for Europe as the euro zone deteriorates without a solution in sight. 
We have already seen shortages of 1/5 and ¼ ounce coins from time to time as Europeans gobble them up. These developments are reflections of the ongoing financial problems facing the US, UK and England. Those problems are recognized worldwide and thus, we have massive gold off take by many countries. In tandem all countries are running deficits and it is getting worse not better. The attitude is print money like everyone else is and buy gold at cheap prices. There has to be a lesson to be learned when US dealers go to European wholesalers and get little or no new product. At retailers product offerings are even slimmer.
Gold and silver have been in bull markets since June of 2000 and the trend continues, as nations get deeper in a financial hole, which is reflected in their currencies in the form of higher gold and silver prices. Manipulation of paper gold markets cannot continue on forever. One derivative default and the whole edifice could collapse. Manipulation only allows you to buy cheaper, but once the cartel is out of gold and silver underlying their positions, the game will be over.
In our last issue we covered new developments in Holland pertaining to the terrible cost it was foisting on Dutch citizens. A Rotterdam court has overturned Dutch pensions – regulator’s demand that SPVG, pension fund, divest more than ¾’s of its 13% gold allocation. The damages to the fund will be about $13 million, the difference between the current gold price and gold’s price a year ago. The court said the only criteria for purchase was the prudent person rule. The government regulator was wrong, he probably was acting in behalf of central banks. Now that gold has to be bought back.
That takes us back to the monetary aspects of what nations are up too and particularly in the US, UK and Europe. We have had zero interest rates for a long time and we see no end in sight. If rates are raised the financial structure would collapse and everyone in the financial markets is well aware of that. Those sovereign entities and their central banks are trapped with QE and zero rates and there is no way out. You cannot run deficit after deficit and expect gold and silver not to go up as a result of that.
People forget this is free money for the banking system, but the public gets little benefit. The same thing is in process in Europe. Not zero rates but close to it. The IMF and the ECB, the European Central Bank, may not have had to take write downs of Greek debt, like private bondholders did, but sooner or later taxpayers will have too, that is about $300 billion in losses. The problem goes far beyond Greek bonds; it includes all kinds of bonds, because governments and commercial enterprises work so closely together. That means to a great extent there is no validity to government debt.
It will be soon apparent, as we pointed out in the last issue that the solvent countries cannot afford to carry the system any longer. That means the euro zone system cannot prevail over time and that there will be flight capital to other currencies, gold and silver. We could see the entire euro zone system going under and that could quickly envelope the UK and US as well. The mishandling of the European debt crisis and Greece has only made things worse, and the process of saving the system is futile.
We hear lots of comments on recovery and rising employment. We see very little recovery and few changes in employment, but that is the way of government, lies and more lies. How can any sane person contemplate a recovery with stagnant employment? America no longer has industry or jobs - they shipped them to the rest of the world. As a result America is doomed. The greatest profits and fortunes have been made in manufacturing not in banking and Wall Street. 
We need not tell you of the housing industry. It is still headed lower probably until the end of 2014. There will probably be 10 million foreclosed homes to be sold. Even if they are packaged in $1 billion lots it will take years to move them back into the market. Do you remember we told people to sell starting in June 2005, as the market hit its high? It will be a year’s long process in solving the housing crisis, which is as well a banking crisis.
We see more and more commentary regarding market manipulation by the US government. They are questing how the stock and bond markets can stay at high levels in the middle of a serious recession. They are well aware of QE’s and Operation Twist, plus all the money that has been stuffed in banks by the Fed. Conveniently the SEC does almost nothing regarding front-running and naked shorting. The CFTC is arguably the worst regulator of all-time. Not to be excluded the Fed annually buys about 80% of all treasurys. What a shocking state of affairs.
A subject little discussed is the US dollar, also known as the petrol-dollar. Iran and the BRIC nations are about to take the dollar apart. If allowed to continue other Middle East producers will follow the trend. That could eventually destroy the dollar. The Anglo-American establishment has made a terrible mistake limiting Iran’s sales of oil and the use of international funds clearing operation. The allies of Iran were happy to help them end-run the US and UK acts of war.
Although nations still hold about 60% of their foreign exchange reserves in US dollars, that figure is getting widdled down each day. That is especially true in 3rd world nations. These moves are bullish for gold and silver in the long run as many nations are buying gold and silver in place of US dollars. In addition, we are also seeing more bartering, such as the Iran-India oil deal. There will be lots more of it in the future in efforts to avoid using the US dollar. 
As we view England they told us two weeks ago that the country was broke and who are we to disagree. As a normal extension of that condition we hear they are preparing the introduction of 100-year sovereign debt for only the third time since 1694, when the Bank of England was established.
Most countries have some sort of a welfare state and unfortunately they are all bad, because money is borrowed in the present to be paid back in the future to afford such benefits. In the case of the US and many other countries the money paid in has been misappropriated or stolen. American social Security and Medicare are examples. As it turns out contributions are simply another undisclosed tax. The next natural step by government is to cut those benefits until there are none and then the citizen is dependent totally on the government for survival and easily accepts one-world government and is ready for indoctrination. During this process central banks are destroying the value of the currency and in that process the value of savings with things such as zero interest rates. Less than 2% of Americans realize this and attempt to protect themselves by purchasing gold and silver shares, coins and bullion.
US, UK and European foreign policy by embargo of oil and cash flow are about as dumb as it gets. These sanctions will be easily overcome. We see them as a prelude to new negotiations designed to put Iran in a subservient position, particularly in the sale of oil in dollars. We do not believe the tactic will work and will end up as a minor factor in future negotiations. 
President Obama is starting to run for re-election. He tells us recovery is accelerating and that America is coming back. Even the stock market has breached 13,000 on the Dow. He tells Americans he has gotten us out of the mess it was in. He fails to mention government debt has risen from $10.6 trillion to $16.5 trillion in the three short years he has been in office. What will probably get Mr. Obama reelected are his welfare programs. Too many people now rely on government for survival. Before we know it the Fed will be telling us that they have reached the apex of balance. 

Last week the Dow rose 2.4%, S&P rose 2.4%, the Nasdaq 100 rose 2.5% and the Russell 2000 increased 1.6%. Cyclicals rose 3.29%; transports 3.7%; banks 8.8%; broker/dealers 5.4%; consumers 1.6%, as utilities fell 0.5%. High tech rose 2.4%; semis 3%; Internets 2.6% and biotechs 1.5%. Gold bullion fell $54.00, the HUI fell 6.6% and the USDX fell 0.3% to 79.78.
Two-year T-bills rose 3.5 bps to 0.365%; 15’s rose 3 bps to 3.16%; one-year ARMs gained 8 bps to 2.97% and the 30-year jumbos fell 10 bps to 4.57%.
Fed credit rose $6.7 billion or 11.8% yoy. Holdings of Treasury and Agency debt rose $4.9 billion. Custody holdings for foreign central banks were up $65 billion yoy, or 1.9%.
M2, narrow, money supply rose $15.3 billion and a record $9.80 trillion. That is 8.9% ytd and 9.8% yoy.
Total money market fund assets fell $8.2 billion to $9.8 trillion. Total commercial paper out jumped $11.2 billion to $937 billion.

The president really believes he has gotten us out of this mess by watching cartoons and basketball on T.V. the message is can you afford not to vote for me in November? The methods of escape have been massive amounts of money and credit poured into the system by the Fed and QE 1, QE 2 and Operation Twist, all of which are short-term palliatives, plus, an increase in the short-term federal debt from $10.6 trillion to $15.5 trillion in just three years. This has been the most expensive president in history.
Officially the government tells us U3 unemployment is 8.3% when the Gallup Poll tells us it is 9.1%. That is quite a discrepancy. For good measure official figures show 500,000 workers are looking for work and Gallup shows 10% were working part-time and wanted full-time jobs. Gallup is pro-government, so these numbers are surprising. We mentioned in an earlier letter that we thought the administration would, before November, produce U3 figures of 7.5%. As you can see all the figures are bogus. This is what we have come to expect over the years officially and in some cases unofficially. This is truly Orwellian and it’s going to get worse. In the immediate future you will find the recovery was just a figment of the president’s imagination.
We like to watch these experts grapple with historical statistics, which are not facts because they have been revised so many times they are worthless. Every analyst, except one, tells us we lost 10 million jobs in the recession. That is distortion. We lost 12 million jobs over 12 years due to free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing. That is where the jobs went and that and collapsing real estate caused the recession. Can you imagine what unemployment would look like if the 25% who lost their jobs hadn’t received government disability checks? This phony subsidy costs American taxpayers more than $200 billion a year. This is the kind of reason the president will probably get reelected. This costs us 10% of federal revenues and those getting disability are now more than 10 million people. This is one of the reasons unemployment is not showing higher. Incidentally, when we tell people this they simply don’t believe us. There are hundreds of thousands of workers who are losing extended benefits and who will be looking for work. In fact they are already looking. Our question is how many will opt for disability and be on the government payroll indefinitely? Thus, people will be voting for Obama to keep their free ride.
Lowering unemployment is a structural project not something you throw money at, which has been the case for many years. Government deceives us by calling unemployment at 8.3%. Only the pros know what the real numbers are. Even if you leave in the birth/death ratio U6 is 15-3/4%. That is true “unadjusted” unemployment. Without the bogus birth/death rate it is 22.5% and has been for months.
Small and medium sized firms create 70% or more of all jobs and a good part of their success in doing so is that loans are available from banks. Presently, unless you are an AAA or AA borrower you are not getting loans. That has been going on for three years. The growing number of unemployed, after benefits run out, are now faking it by getting on disability. They are not going to seek out a job and jeopardize that monthly check. They no longer show up on unemployment rolls, but they are costing
the taxpayer a fortune. You cannot create development or new entrepreneurs without loans.
You can call the excuses all you want, but the main reason for massive US unemployment is free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing. Until Congress enacts trade tariffs on goods and services unemployment can only worsen as more and more good jobs are shifted out of the country. 

The Obama administration is sending a message to major buyers of Iranian oil -- in particular China, India and South Korea -- that they can avoid new U.S. sanctions by curtailing their imports of Iranian crude by the end of June, several U.S. officials said.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced yesterday that an “initial group” of countries -- Japan and 10 European Union nations -- have “significantly reduced” their Iranian oil purchases and thus qualified for an exemption from sanctions for a renewable period of 180 days under the law.
The U.S. didn’t grant waivers to China (CCCIIQIR), the leading importer of Iranian crude in the first half of last year, or to India and South Korea, which were the third- and fourth-largest buyers, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
Clinton praised the EU and Japan, which the Energy Department lists as the No. 2 importer of Iranian oil in the first half of last year, for taking actions that “were not easy” to cut back Iranian oil imports. “They had to rethink their energy needs at a critical time for the world economy and quickly begin to find alternatives to Iranian oil, which many had been reliant on for their energy needs,” she said in a statement.
Under a law enacted Dec. 31, countries have until June 28 to demonstrate they have “significantly reduced” the volume of their Iranian crude purchases -- or their banks that settle oil trades with Iran may be cut off from the U.S. financial system.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner agreed to answer questions in writing in Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.’s lawsuit alleging that JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) contributed to Lehman’s collapse in 2008.
Geithner’s agreement, noted in a March 16 filing by the U.S. in federal court in Washington, forestalls a judge’s ruling on whether he could be compelled to testify in the case. U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton yesterday accepted the arrangement and ordered both sides to update him by April 3.
“If the parties should reach an impasse or plaintiff is otherwise dissatisfied with the written responses, the parties shall so notify the court,” Assistant U.S. Attorney John Interrante said in the filing.
Lehman sued Geithner in February, alleging that the Treasury Department “has for many months delayed and ultimately refused” to allow testimony by the secretary. His testimony is key to Lehman’s contention that JPMorgan siphoned off $8.6 billion during the 2008 credit crisis, according to a court filing in Washington.
Geithner, at the time president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, discussed the collateral JPMorgan was demanding for its loans with Richard Fuld and Jamie Dimon, Lehman’s and JPMorgan’s chief executive officers, in the week before Lehman’s bankruptcy, according to the filing. He also met with Dimon and Henry Paulson, then Treasury Secretary, to discuss “concerns” that Dimon was using the crisis to strengthen his bank at Lehman’s expense, they said.
After our story on the Rise of the Prepper, we have been inundated with emails from readers telling us how hard it’s becoming for them to obtain certain types of ammo. We also had a reader send us a press release this morning from Ruger. (…thanks Kris)
Effective Immediately Ruger has stopped accepting Firearms Orders. The Company says that they have had to temporarily suspend the acceptance of new orders after receiving requests for more than one million units.
Here is the Official Statement form Ruger:
SOUTHPORT, CT –Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR), announced today that for the first quarter 2012, the Company has received orders for more than one million units. Therefore, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.
Chief Executive Officer Michael O. Fifer made the following comments:
The Company’s Retailer Programs that were offered from January 1, 2012 through February 29, 2012 were very successful and generated significant orders from retailers to independent wholesale distributors for Ruger firearms.
Year-to-date, the independent wholesale distributors placed orders with the Company for more than one million Ruger firearms.
Despite the Company’s continuing successful efforts to increase production rates, the incoming order rate exceeds our capacity to rapidly fulfill these orders. Consequently, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.
The Company expects to resume the normal acceptance of orders by the end of May 2012.
In the Rise of the Prepper article, we warned that with Guns, Gold and Emergency Food all setting record sales numbers we will likely see major shortages hit the marketplace. As people begin to stock up on preparedness related items in response to the coming election cycle, we will likely see nationwide shortages similar to what happened during the elections in 2008. I fear this is only the beginning.

The Senate approved legislation Thursday formally banning lawmakers and all senior federal workers from making financial trades based on information gleaned from their oversight work.
The law, which President Obama has said he will sign, will explicitly forbid lawmakers and senior administration officials from using private knowledge for personal profit. The STOCK Act — which stands for Stop Trading On Congressional Knowledge — is a scaled- back version of what was originally approved in the Senate, but will increase transparency into lawmakers’ and other officials’ finances.
THE FIX | A children’s toy has become a big problem for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.
The passage ended a six-year journey from a little-noticed bill to one that caught fire in recent months because of widespread anti-Congress sentiment among voters.
“We took a step toward ending the deficit of trust that’s hurting our democracy. ... The STOCK Act will affirm that members of Congress are not above the law,” Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.), one of the main sponsors of the legislation, said during the debate. 
Brown, who faces a strong reelection challenge from Democrat Elizabeth Warren in November, was one of many lawmakers who jumped on the bill after a “60 Minutes” report aired last fall that outlined how securities laws appear vague on the question of whether insider trading prohibitions apply to members of Congress and their staffs. 
The original legislation was narrowly crafted to clarify the insider trading restrictions on Capitol Hill and require monthly disclosure of financial trades, rather than the once-a-year disclosure currently in place. The Senate debate, held over a week in early February, turned into a heated effort by rank-and-file senators to prove their reformer credentials at a time when the public has its lowest approval of Congress in polling history.
On largely bipartisan votes, the Senate included a provision to ban bonuses to senior executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac; to require a burgeoning K Street sector known as the political intelligence industry to disclose its activities in the same manner as federal lobbyists; and to strengthen anti-corruption laws that the Supreme Court had ruled against as insufficiently vague. Other amendments that were offered, but not voted on, represented the toughest ethics laws ever considered on Capitol Hill, including one from Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) that would have permanently banned lawmakers and staff from becoming federal lobbyists.
The House streamlined the legislation, as House Majority Leader Eric I. Cantor (R-Va.) argued that the political intelligence provision was broadly worded and that the industry should instead be studied. In addition, the House removed anti-corruption language.
That disappointed some supporters, particularly Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.), who first offered the insider trading legislation six years ago. In recent weeks, citing reports about the industry in the Wall Street Journal, Slaughter said she considered the intelligence disclosure the most important provision in the law.
“Despite the fact that not all of the provisions I first proposed will soon become law, today I’m delighted,” Slaughter said Thursday after the Senate vote. “I’ve learned that you’re never truly defeated in a legislature until you give up.”
While the bill is primarily aimed at members of Congress, the House and Senate also included measures to assure that the senior adminis
