AAPL Beats Expectations As China Becomes Dominant iPhone Market; Cash Jumps But So Does Debt

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 04/27/2015 17:04

Moments ago AAPL reported Q2 earnings for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 which saw AAPL beat soundly on the top and bottom line as as result of a jump in iPhone sales, even as iPad and Mac sales came in below the expectation. EPS was $2.33 vs consensus $2.16, while revenues came in at $58.0 billion, $2 billion higher than the $56.0 billion expected.

While as expected AAPL had little to say about the Apple Watch launch, merely noting that it is aiming to reach a supply-demand balance for the product by quarter end, the breakdown by legacy product line reveals that it is still all about the iPhone, whose sales came in at 61.2 million above the 58.1 million expected, driven by a jump in Chinese demand, with iPad sales being cannibalized, while Mac sales dipped to 4.6 million, below expectations and the lowest since Q3 2014.

Senior Fellow at Sunlight Foundation Calls the Clinton Foundation “A Slush Fund”

libertyblitzkrieg.com / Michael Krieger / 

The hits keep on coming. Just last week, in the post, More Clinton Foundation Cronyism – The Deal to Sell Uranium Interests to Russia While Hillary was Secretary of State, I referred to the Clinton Foundation as “a veritable clearinghouse for cronyism masquerading as a charity.” Here’s the full opening paragraph to the piece:

If you looked at the U.S. economy under a microscope, what you’d see is a gigantic cancerous blob of cronyism surrounded by tech startups and huge prisons. If you zeroed in on the cancerous tumor, at the nucleus you’d see a network of crony institutions like the Federal Reserve, intelligence agencies, TBTF Wall Street banks and defense contractors. Pretty close to that, you’d probably find the Clinton Foundation. A veritable clearinghouse for cronyism masquerading as a charity.

Unsurprisingly, I’m not the only one who has come to such a conclusion. In a New York Post article from Sunday that is generating a lot of buzz, Bill Allison, a senior fellow at nonpartisan, nonprofit government watchdog group the Sunlight Foundation, is quoted saying:

The Limits Of Propaganda

zerohedge.com / by Dmitry Orlov via Club Orlov blog on 04/27/2015 20:45

As Paul Craig Roberts has recently reported, the US government is in the process of launching an all-out war on truth. Those who express views contrary to the party line out of Washington will be labeled a threat. Eventually they may find themselves carted to one of the concentration camps which Halliburton (Dick Cheney’s old company) has constructed for $385 million. But that may take a while.

In the meantime, we can expect lots of other, less dramatic developments. Indeed, some of these are already happening. Here they are, listed in order of severity.

CHINA: THE KEY TO THE NEW WORLD ORDER — James Corbett

SGTreport.com, Published on Apr 27, 2015

Investigative Journalist James Corbett of the Corbett Report joins me with some very bad news about the New World Order. James says that despite the formation of the BRICS Banks, the Shanghai Gold Exchange and the new Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), the International Banker’s plans to usher in their New World Order remain firmly in place and on track. How could that be when the evidence suggest that the world is moving away from the Dollar as wealth moves from West to East? Because, James says, “At the very top of this Bankster pyramid, the Chinese elite is connected directly in with the U.S. Western elite.”

James has carefully documented the “8 Immortal Families” in his report on China and the New World Order which shows how the 8 Immortals are totally connected to Henry Kissinger and the Rockefeller-Rothschikld banking elite. This is the way they will lead us into a New WORLD Order.

“The West is being engineered into a world system of governance and government that can only come about through the rise of the East. It’s been puppeteered from the very start. There is no doubt that China’s rise right now is something that has been long planned for and carefully engineered.”

ALL’S FAIR IN LOVE & WAR: THE US GOVT HUNTS AMERICANS OFFSHORE

dollarvigilante.com / Paul Seymour / April 27, 2015

When I was growing up, my Grandma used to remind me from time to time that all’s fair in love and war.  Lately I’m continually reminded of that, as I see the US government (USG) toss out the rule book in their primarily, undeclared war on the entire world, including US citizens.  At least the rule book is tossed out from my perspective.  When one has the ability to change the rulebook as it suits them to win the war, then the rule book has been tossed out.  There are others, though, who still don’t even realize that they are at war, and meekly try to play by whatever rules they’re given by their rule-maker/adversary.  Well, it’s only your freedom at stake.

I recently was forwarded a report, and found it really fascinating stuff.  It was released in January and is entitled Tax Havens: International Tax Avoidance and Evasion.  It was issued by none other than the Congressional Research Service.  It wouldn’t be a worthy tentacle of the USG beast without a 3-lettered acronym, so we’ll call it CRS from here on out.

My first step was to find out a little bit about what I was reading, and that required that I know a bit about who the authors were.  The CRS brags that it has been “informing the legislative debate since 1914”.   The year of its formation is interesting in itself, since in 1913, the illegal 16th Amendment to the Constitution initiated the unconstitutional income tax, and in 1914 Benjamin Strong Jr. was selected to be the first president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.  It’s sheer coincidence, I’m sure, that World War I broke out that same year.

A Glimpse At Who “They” Are

What I’ve been seeing lately makes me wonder if “they” aren’t planning a nasty centennial celebration, and I was very interested to learn a little bit more about who the CRS really is.  Here’s a copy/paste of the very 1st paragraph from the “About Us” page of the CRS website.

How This Debt-Addicted World Could Go The Way Of The Mayans

zerohedge.com / Authored Op-Ed by Satyajit Das, originally posted at MarketWatch on 04/27/2015 16:37

Paying a high price for too many elites and their ‘frivolous cravings’.

Nowadays many countries’ social and political structure relies on debt-driven consumption and increasing levels of entitlements.

Blame the policy makers. To drive economic growth, boost living standards, and manage growing inequality, policy makers have used debt and monetary tools to create economic activity. This has resulted in excessive borrowing and imbalances in global trade and capital.

Governments played a part, too, allowing the buildup of social entitlements to win or maintain office. Private companies also encouraged the growth of employee benefits to avoid immediate pressure on wages as well as boost current earnings and share prices.

But such expensive commitments were rarely fully funded.

Study: Whooping Cough Epidemics Related to Failed Vaccine, Not Unvaccinated

KSBW in Salinas California reported in March 2015 that a whooping cough outbreak had occurred among fully vaccinated students. Video image from KSBW.com.

healthimpactnews.com / by Dani Cooper, ABC – Australia / April 28, 2015

Health Impact News Editor Comments

News continues to spread regarding the fact that the current pertussis vaccine is ineffective. Health Impact News first reported on this in 2013 after several studies, including studies the FDA and CDC participated in, confirmed that the vaccine was no longer effective.

Earlier this year a school in Salinas California reported a whooping cough outbreak among students who were fully vaccinated.

And yet, the U.S. mainstream media keeps blaming unvaccinated children for these whooping cough epidemics, and keeps on encouraging everyone to get the failed vaccine.

ABC in Australia, however, is publishing the truth after a new study was published this month where researchers claimed the failed pertussis vaccine is to blame for recent whooping cough outbreaks, and not unvaccinated children.

APRIL 27/FITCH LOWERS DEBT RATING ON JAPAN/CHINA WILL NOW BEGIN QE WHICH SENDS GOLD AND SILVER SKYROCKETING/GREECE BECOMES SOFT CAPITAL CONTROLS/GREECE MUNICIPALITIES REFUSE TO GIVE THEIR CASH TO SOVEREIGN GREECE/SILVER OI RISES AGAIN SETTING UP A POTENTIAL SILVER SQUEEZE/HUGE WITHDRAWAL OF GOLD AT THE GLD (HEADING STRAIGHT TO SHANGHAI) /HUGE ADDITION OF 2.976 MILLION OZ INTO THE SLV/

harveyorganblog.com / by harveyorgan / April 27, 2015

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen:

Here are the following closes for gold and silver today:

Gold: $1203.30 up $28.10 (comex closing time)

Silver: $16.39 up 76 cents (comex closing time)

In the access market 5:15 pm

Gold $1202.00

Silver: $16.39

Gold/silver trading: see kitco charts on the right side of the commentary.

Today is options expiry on the comex. On Thursday we will have options expiry on the LBMA in London and on the OTC market as well. Today was a welcomed change from our bankers normal behaviour of whacking silver and gold during options expiry week. However we still have 3 more days before first day notice.

Following is a brief outline on gold and silver comex figures for today:

At the gold comex today, we had a good delivery day, registering 25 notices served for 2500 oz. Silver comex filed with 0 notices for nil oz .

Several months ago the comex had 303 tonnes of total gold. Today the total inventory rests at 241.13 tonnes for a loss of 62 tonnes over that period. Lately the removals have been rising!

end

In silver, the open interest rose by another 1886 contracts despite the fact that Friday’s silver price was down by 19 cents. The total silver OI continues to remain extremely high with today’s reading at 188,004 contracts rising to multi-year record highs. The front April month has an OI of 22 contracts for a loss of 0 contracts. We are now at multi year high in the total OI complex despite a record low price. This dichotomy has been happening now for quite a while and defies logic. There is no doubt that the silver situation is scaring our bankers to no end. The COT report on Friday in silver showed the commercials going long in silver in a big way and the large specs going short. Is a short squeeze coming?

In silver had 0 notices served upon for nil oz.

In gold, the total comex gold OI rests tonight at 418,813 for a gain of 13,249 contracts despite the fact that gold was up by $18.90 on Friday. We had 25 notices served upon for 2500 oz.

Today, we lost 3.29 tonnes of gold inventory at the GLD heading straight to Shanghai/ Gold Inventory rests at 739.06 tonnes.

In silver, / /we had a huge addition of 2.976 million oz of silver inventory to the SLV/ and thus the inventory tonight is 329.202 million oz

We have a few important stories to bring to your attention today…

Austrian Economists Understand Why There Is A Commodity Glut

zerohedge.com /  by Tyler Durden on 04/27/2015 18:25

In response to The Wall Street Journal’s article on confused policymakers dealing with a glut of capital, Mises Canada’ Patrick Barron briefly summarizes their errors…

The worldwide commodity glut is not a surprise to Austrian school economists.

It is a wonderful example of the adverse consequences of monetary repression to drive the interest rate below the natural rate.

Longer term projects, such as expansion of mineral extraction, appear to become profitable. But such is not the case for the simple reason that printing money does not represent an increase in real, saved resources.

The Mark: Will You Wear This “Beast Tech” Digital Tattoo That Can Read Your Mind And Operate Your Devices?

shtfplan.com / Mac Slavo / April 27th, 2015

Over the next several years we’ll begin to see advanced bio-technologies hit the retail market. According to Tom Horn, author of On the Path of the Immortals, this Beast Tech could lead to the eventual extinction of the human race as we know it today.

Google engineers, for example, are working on life-extending technologies that will directly modify our DNA to keep us alive longer. Some have suggested that in the near future it will not be out of the question to live for 150 years or more.

The advancements are happening at such an incredible pace that it’s difficult to keep up.

Last month scientists announced that they have successfully brought back the Woolly Mammoth and spliced it with the genes of an Asian elephant. And just a couple of weeks ago Chinese researchers edited the genes of a human embryo, opening the door to the real possibility of not just curing disease before a child is even born, but enhancing them with faster muscles, a more intelligent brain, or better eye sight.

Many of the real-world applications for DNA modification technologies are still some years out but the evolution towards technologies that will change a human to a cyborg are taking place right now.

Take, for example, a new tattoo that is applied behind the ear. Once installed and integrated, the tattoo will not only act like an EEG and be able to identify your moods, but it will also be able to “listen” to your brain to launch applications, control home devices like your coffee machine or TV on demand, and they’ll eventually even eliminate your mobile phone because the speaker and microphone will be built right in.

Earth Day and the Sorry History of Doomsday Predictions

acting-man.com / Pater Tenebrarum / April 27, 2015

The dude that awaits unrepentant sinners … Image credit: Blizzard Entertainment

On Wednesday, April 22 last week, Earth Day came around for the 45th time. Even Pope Francis got in on the act, urging “all people to protect the earth” (we hereby solemnly promise to stand guard whenever we find the time). This day of ritual incantations of imminent doom and all-around finger-wagging was inaugurated in 1970. Readers may recall our article “The End is Nigh” from last year, in which we listed predictions from professional doomsayers beginning with what is believed to be the oldest forecast of the impending end of the world ever found, inscribed on an Assyrian stone tablet around 2800 BC. Obviously, every single prediction of this type made since then has turned out to be wrong. Nevertheless, an entire professional caste has made and continues to make an often very good living from predicting the imminent end of the world, seemingly undeterred by this 4,800 year record of failure. The number of doomsters has actually gone through the roof in modern times, so clearly there is a market for this stuff (sadly, a depressingly large portion of it is funded involuntarily by tax payers).

To be sure, we are not entirely innocent of doom-saying activities ourselves. For instance, we believe that the current debt-based fiat money system with its large central economic planning component is going to end in a major calamity. However, while it will undoubtedly be an uncomfortable experience, it won’t be the end of the world. Nearly every mainstream economist disagrees with this of course, at least officially. This lack of support can be easily explained though. Most mainstream economists must surely realize that if not for statist central planning, there would be very little demand for macro-economists. Obviously they are not inclined to bite the hand that feeds them. In addition, the idea of having a shot at central planning, or at least a shot at advising central planners, presumably appeals to many people (everybody thinks he has the best plan, and if only it were implemented, Nirvana would be shortly at hand).

We insist also that there is another essential difference between our kind of gloominess and that of people like, say, Paul Ehrlich. We believe strongly in human ingenuity. We are awed that the market economy – severely hampered as it is – still manages to create so much real wealth that at the tail end of most boom-bust cycles, society still tends to better off than it was before the boom phase started. It is just not doing as well as it could have in the absence of business cycles fueled by credit expansion. Accordingly, we also believe that if the market economy were left to its own devices, a veritable explosion in general prosperity would ensue (note here that this wouldn’t involve making coercive plans telling other people what they should or shouldn’t do). In short, we are actually inherently optimistic, because we believe in the transformational power of voluntarysocial cooperation (a.k.a., the free market). In this we are happily supported by both theory and economic history.

However, there is very little inherent optimism found among members of the professional doomsayer caste that is for the most part inspired by environmentalism and scarcity memes nowadays. This caste used to be inspired by religion, and a strong religious undercurrent can still be detected in almost all so-called “scientific” doom-saying exercises of modern times. Almost all of them revolve around man and his alleged sins.

How many issues of a book entitled “There is absolutely nothing to worry about” would Paul Ehrlich have sold? Probably not too many. Admittedly, one could spice the title up a little, as in e.g. “Everything’s going to be awesome!”. Still, “The Population Bomb” offered a lot more titillation. You only needed to glance at the first few sentences in the book to see what we mean (this was written in 1968):

Greek Municipal Union Refuses To Hand Over “Confiscated” Cash To Central Bank

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 04/27/2015 14:30

A week ago the world and Greece alike were stunned to learn that the financial situation in Athens is so atrocious, the government, through an emergency decree, was forced to not only “borrow” funds from pensioners, but would also confiscate any available cash held by municipal entities such as mayor’s offices, the national opera, the art gallery and even hospitals and kindergartens, in order to make its upcoming payments to the Troika, as well as to help with rolling over debt maturities, of which as a reminder there are many.

Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts – Option Expiry Today, FOMC on Wednesday

There was some intraday commentary on the metals here.

The bucket shop delivery and warehouse reports were quiet.

Gold and silver had a sharp rally this morning. Some would ascribe it to a perception that the Fed will not be raising rates anytime soon.

I think we have played that tune many, many times. Too many to matter much anymore.

Let’s see what happens.

The Moral Hazards of Public Debt and How to Save Yourself

schiffgold.com / BY MIKE FINGER / APRIL 27, 2015

In the second part of his interview with the Daily Bell, Peter Schiff discusses the economic dilemmas of Greece and the eurozone. He warns that the United States faces the same moral hazard of massive public debts that will be impossible to repay. Peter believes the Federal Reserve and American government will resort to currency inflation to deal with these debts.

Daily Bell asks Peter for the best strategy to protect one’s savings and investments from a US dollar currency crisis. Peter recommends physical precious metals and careful investments abroad.
