Biden Warns Russia “It’s Time To Stop Talking, And Start Acting”

Tyler Durden’s pictureSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 04/22/2014 09:08 -0400

Vice President Jo Biden’s show of support arrival in Ukraine started with a somewhat back-handed statement that left some questioning Biden’s diplomatic skills once again. “You face some very daunting problems and some might say humiliating threats are taking place,” Biden spoke to Ukraine officials, pledging an additional $50 million to help Ukraine’s beleaguered government with political and economic reforms. As CBS reports, The White House has also announced $8 million in nonlethal military assistance for the Ukrainian armed forces, including bomb-disposal equipment, communications gear and vehicles. Biden concluded his oratory with a threat – that seemed oddly worded given the ‘actions’ of the last few days, warning Russia that “it’s time to stop talking and start acting.”

It’s just the idiot is such a loser he illicits irrational responses…

Coffee’s on

macroman (23:08) I still think Keystone should be finished from Hardisty to the Gulf

of Mexico, especially since TransCanada has already done the southern leg from Cushing to the Gulf. But despite my remaining in support of finishing the Keystone, I also agree with your points. I think Canada also needs additional pipeline to the west coast, as well as to the east. To avoid getting caught up in the complications of piping western oil through Quebec, I favor your idea of getting it to the Lakehead and refining it there (or alternatively processing it in the Edmonton-Fort Saskatchewan refining hub). Once we get more substantial energy export outlets on the west and east coasts of the country, and also in the Gulf of Mexico, then I think it will be time for Canada to start bargaining for alternative currencies by which the country is willing to be paid for its exportable energy. And why not bargain for including gold in the mix by which Canada is paid for its exportable energy. Cheers.

Equise, yer 12:00, Eff Obama and the Keystone… we should pipe one east to the lakehead and refine it there, (or better yet, in Ft Mac and then pipe the refined) and the rest to ChIndia.

Oh and at some point the North Sea Brent we are importing at a 40 buck chuck premium for the Irvings on the East Coast will dry up and Europe will want Oilsands because the Ruskies said Nyet.

winedoc, chilly out East…nevermind, I had snow in two of my sandtraps today.

Betchya Flag never hit a snowflopper before…even in those grooovy pants

Pretium perhaps ipso?..come on 7-11…Oh wait, that’s the address of my cardboard box in the back by the dumpster

Good … now they can buy one of my miners

Goldcorp bows out of bidding war for rival Canadian miner Osisko


Very logical to me…to wait till fall.I wish it were different, but I don’t think it will be.

Winedoc @ 13:23 Cheers to you too. Silver is certainly attractively priced now relative to the price of gold.

Jr’s outperforming?

Jnug going green….first..fwiw

they sure underperformed recently.

just one time.


Banksters wanted this banned


Which year ya thinking?

I dunno, the 30m charts have pos div on the macd and are just issuing sar buys fwiw.

no idea why they all just perked up with out gold moving at all. kinda odd…


Looks like we might not see HUI wake up until August. Just sayin’

Equisetum: gold/silver ratio

Saw your post the other day. I worked hard all weekend, as an Easter Gift to myself ……

I am happy to stack a little more silver sub $20 bucks

From the chilly east coast ……


On energy matters, I wish the U.S. could be a more willing continental partner.

Roger that, and the CIA used to be called OSA?? or something. I think the IMF world bank, BIS, and the Fed Reserve are all the same thing, all the same gang or clan. Global manipulators, worlders, citizens of the world, not a country. They control the entire world except for a few pockets of independence like Cuba Iran and N.Korea.


The IMF didn’t exist in 1934:  it was one of those little delights spawned by the Bretton Woods heist in 1944.  I think the IMF “lend” money in much the same way they “sell” gold.

Who is “us”?

I certainly do recall CoaEHM … thankyou for the reminder :-) An excellent tome, tho prob not for reading alone or after dark



floridagold @ 10:47 am

I’m so encouraged. Whatever he touches turns to shi*.

ipso_facto @ 10:19 am

yeah, that will make things better – Good thing that “O” is taking a trip to Asia this week – he will be able to straighten all this out – draw some red lines – makes some sound bites and such.

rainbow @ 10:29

I think the IMF owns the gold that was turned in back in 1934 when they declared us bankrupt. Called in the loans from 1913 for WWI. Ever notice how IMF loans to third world nations, that had trouble paying it back, and had to “give up” something? Like mining rights?

Remember confessions of an economic hit man? Well they did it to America first imo.


AFAICR the IMF doesn’t *really* have any gold at all … after all, where would they get it? And where would they hold it?  I recall a lot of shady dealings being exposed to daylight when that 200 tons was sold to India. Nothing was transported, nothing was transferred, IMF representatives could not be drawn on any issues of substance. The IMF has zip, nada, but I suspect they can get their claws on plenty of the stuff if they need to … I’m not surprised questions are starting to be asked in Euroland about the extent and whereabouts of gold deposits…

well well well #15 … whodathunkit?  :-)
#89 is a surprise – is that a typo?  Or have the Cannucks given their stash to their eminently upright, downright, forthright,  upstanding neighbours for safekeeping?




Today, April 21, is the anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto where Sam Houston’s ragtag army routed General Santa Anna’s Mexican troops and secured independence for the Republic of Texas. I haven’t decided exactly what to do to celebrate the occasion this year, perhaps mow the yard or wash the car. The song “The Yellow Rose of Texas” was written to celebrate the mulatto who was entertaining General Santa Anna and distracted him from his official duties. He was reportedly searching for his pants when he was captured.
