The U.N. Goes Big on Cannabis Reform | Baltimore Pushes for Social Justice | MERRY JANE NEWS
MERRY JANE https://www.merryjane.com This week, a top committee of the United Nations World Health Organization has recommended that world leaders rethink the global prohibition of marijuana, bringing worldwide cannabis reform one step closer to becoming a reality. The U.N. currently classifies cannabis as a Schedule Four drug. Schedule Four is a category reserved for extremely addictive and dangerous drugs that have no accepted medical use, like heroin or crack. Last November, the World Health Organization’s. Expert Committee on Drug Dependence decided to re-evaluate whether this extreme classification is still relevant in the 21st Century. After considering mountains of scientific evidence, the committee has now recommended that cannabis should be moved to Schedule One – the least restrictive drug category. The committee also recommended that CBD should not be considered a restricted drug at all. This decision is only a recommendation, however, and it is ultimately up to a commission of 53 individual countries to decide whether or not to officially relax the global prohibition of marijuana. Back home the U.S., the great city of Baltimore has just joined the push to bring social justice to some of the millions of Americans who have been jailed for minor cannabis crimes. Last week, Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced that her office will stop prosecuting marijuana possession cases. The prosecutor also requested that city courts clear the convictions for nearly 5,000 current pot possession offenders. At a press conference, Mosby said that “No one who is serious about public safety can honestly say that spending resources to jail people for marijuana use is a smart way to use our limited time and money.” Baltimore currently has the highest murder rate of any U.S. city, but city police were only able to solve 26% of all of last year’s murder cases. Mosby argued that cops need to stop wasting time and resources on busting people for weed, and focus their efforts on violent crime. Unfortunately, Baltimore police are not on board with State Attorney Mosby's plans, and have said that they will continue to arrest anyone caught with weed. At the very least, anyone still getting busted can rest easier knowing that carrying a bag of pot may no longer leave them with a permanent criminal record. And in nearby Pennsylvania, lawmakers have just introduced a bill to legalize pot entirely. The new bill, filed by state Representative Jake Wheatley and 25 co-sponsors, would allow anyone over 21 to grow, buy, use, and possess pot. The bill would also include measures of social justice, clearing the records of former pot offenders and requiring the release of anyone currently doing time for minor weed crimes. Taxes from retail sales could bring the state an estimated $500 million a year, and Wheatley said that he would use half of this revenue to help reduce student loan debt for graduates of Pennsylvania schools. Another 40 percent would go to fund affordable housing, and the final 10 percent would go to support after-school care programs. It is not yet certain whether the bill has a chance of becoming law, considering that both the state House and Senate are controlled by Republicans. However, Governor Tom Wolf has recently argued that it is time for the Keystone State to consider legalization, and his support might just turn that “no” vote to a “yes.” Follow MERRY JANE!

David Skarica: Gold To Test 2011 Highs, Look for Fall Breakout
David discusses the volatility in the market and the reasons for a coming decline. A fight over the budget, tax cuts, or the debt ceiling could create further problems. The technical foundations of the market have been crumbling in recent months. Gold is doing well although a bigger rally has not happened since the general market has held up. Gold stocks performed well in 2015/2016 due to the markets falling but have lagged in 2017. Investors are less inclined to put funds in gold and precious metal stocks when the markets are performing well. In 2003 gold really took off when the Fed began to cut rates so we are looking for that trigger event again. For gold, there is resistance at 1350-1370 which needs to be broken however this gives you time to average in. Any fall in the market will be met with further liquidity in PM’s. We could have a very good gold market this spring. We could be back at 2011 highs surprisingly quickly if it breaks out this fall. We’ve had a recent topping pattern in the dollar. The Fed is unlikely to raise rates and Europe looks like they will taper. We are at the 91/92 dollar support level if it heads below that we could be in the mid-80’s. David discusses Walbridge (TSE:WM), Mexican Gold (CVE:MEX), and Triumph Gold (CVE:TIG). He discusses how each of them has some fantastic prospects and their future potential.

Companies are “Coming Home to America Again”! President Trump Delivers Exciting Jobs Announcement
Companies are “Coming Home to America Again”! President Trump Delivers Exciting Jobs Announcement -http://VFNKB.com As President Trump continues to maintain his faithful leadership at the helm of America, the positive reports continue to be released. With business leaders in attendance, President Trump shares an exciting jobs announcement regarding how the American economy is continuing to improve. Since the President has taken office, the Stock Market has reached “new all-time highs” OVER 60 TIMES! But that’s not all. President Trump has also brought great improvements to the unemployment in our nation as “unemployment is as its lowest in almost 17 years”. As the present business world is not simply national, but international, President Trump underscores the importance of not only creating jobs in America, but by bringing jobs BACK to America. “Jobs have been offshored to so many countries that were now coming back, and now those jobs and those companies are coming back to our great American home.” New jobs are being created because business leaders cannot ignore the tax incentives of doing business in America because of the President’s hard push for tax reform. These are not just words on a page, or statements before a microphone. Representatives from major corporations agree as the President shares astonishing changes.

This move will greatly impact America’s revenue. ”With this commitment, more than $20 billion in annual revenue will come back to our cities, towns, and the American workers.” As jobs are flowing back into the American economy, the President understand that additional changes must be made: Corporate Regulations. “That's why I've already slashed more unnecessary job-killing regulations than any President in history.” No longer will growing corporations feel the tightening hindrances of regulations. If these announcements were not exciting enough for the American worker and business leaders, there were also uplifting reports to be shared about how business taxes will be changing. “We will restore our competitive edge by reducing business taxes for the first time in more than 30 years…” As the President points out, these changes will boost America’s economy with trillions of dollars. The President also shares the moment by allowing the CEO of Broadcom, Hock Tan, to share his perspective on their decision to move their headquarters from Singapore to the United States. Throughout the many words of encouragement and hope that Mr. Tan shares, his statement can be summed up in these powerful words; “we are announcing that we are making America home again”. These are moments that we cannot understate. These are moments of celebration. The tides are turning, and the restoration of America’s economy is beginning. See the full report from President Trump on America’s present business assessment as well as the statements from Mr. Tan, and so much more. #VFNKB, #Business,

Wide of protesters Wide of Mexico City traffic 4. Mid of Telmex (telephone company) building Various of protestors 5. Mid of union leader Francisco Hernandez Juarez 6. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Francisco Hernandez Juarez, Telephone Workers Union Leader: "Aggressions against workers, lack of knowledge about their representation, violation of their rights and now repression and death and murder of our friends and co-workers. This had not happened in the country since the days of Porfirio Diaz''s presidency, and if we allow this to continue it will have a regressive outcome. We want to prove that we are not willing to let that happen." 7. Various of Hernande Juarez 8. Various of protest 9. Zoom out of protesters blocking traffic 10. Wide of protests and traffic STORYLINE: A demonstration by thousands of Mexican workers to promote union solidarity on Friday turned into a protest against America''s vast influence on the nation''s economy, with many protesters saying they will take part in a boycott of all things "gringo" next week. Waving signs saying "Don''t Buy Gringo Products. Long live the Boycott," about 3,000 workers with Mexico''s state-owned electrical utility blocked traffic on a major highway and then marched 3 kilometres (2 miles) to a vast colonial plaza in the city''s centre. The proposed boycott _ known as the "Nothing Gringo" campaign _ is timed to coincide with Monday''s "Day Without Immigrants" protest in the United States aimed at pushing forward a proposal for immigration reform including legalisation for many of the estimated 11 million undocumented migrants. In Mexico, the boycott has also turned into a rallying cry for groups opposed to U.S. economic influence south of the American border. While the protest was called to express solidarity with a police raid on striking miners that killed two last week in a southern Mexican city, the protesters used the opportunity to express their ire at corporations and privatisations they say enslave Mexican workers for the sake of profit. The utility workers were joined by unionised social security system bureaucrats, nurses, subway drivers and even restaurant employees decked out in their white chef hats. In support of the protest, Telefonos de Mexico SA telephone workers suspended service for several hours for a number Mexicans call to find out telephone numbers. Some international long distance service was also interrupted, union leaders said. Union leader Francisco Hernandez Juarez said, "aggressions against workers, lack of knowledge about their representation, violation of their rights and now repression and death and murder of our friends and co-workers... and if we allow it to continue to happen it will have a regressive outcome." Protesters waved banners against the so-called "neoliberal" free market economic policies they blame for unchecked corporate-sponsored globalisation, and also carried signs urging the U.S. Congress to come up with "a fair deal for the undocumented workers in the United States."

Will Trump's tax bill trigger a trade war? 🇺🇸  | Counting the Cost
In 2017, taxation was a hot topic: The release of the Panama Papers followed by the Paradise Papers which showed how the world's wealthiest hid their money from revenue collectors. And then this week billionaire US President Donald Trump rewrote tax law for the world's biggest economy and some of the world's biggest companies. Trump and Republicans say the tax bill will pour rocket fuel into the engine of the US economy - spurring growth and creating jobs. But many Americans are sceptical about the impact of the tax bill, and experts are concerned about the global implications of the US tax reform. James Henry, a global justice senior fellow with Yale University, discusses a looming trade war and how Trump himself will benefit from the tax bill. The dark side of the electric car revolution One of the big changes facing the global transportation industry is electrification. Big corporations and car manufacturers are going electric, with Toyota saying it will have an electrified or hybrid version of all vehicles by 2025. But Amnesty International has shone a light on the dark side of this revolution. Cobalt is one of the key ingredients added in electric batteries, and most it comes from the Democratic Republic of Congo, the world's leading source of the compound. Amnesty says children as young as seven work in dangerous conditions in DRC cobalt mines. The DRC could benefit from electric cars the same way Saudi Arabia did from oil, but mining is more or less unregulated and the country continues to struggle with corruption and conflict. Is the road to zero emissions built on illegal cobalt mining in the Democratic Republic of Congo? Gavin Wendt, the founding director and senior resource analyst at Australia-based Minelife, talks about the future of electric cars, working conditions in DRC cobalt mines, and the ethics of the electrification revolution. Also on this week's Counting the Cost: The Uber case: The EU's highest court has ruled that the taxi-hailing company, Uber, is a transport company and must be regulated as one. Uber argued that it is an online digital platform and should not be subject to the same rules. The San Francisco-based firm operates in more than 600 locations, offering low-cost transport to millions of users. But it has also been accused of unfair competition. Neave Barker eeports from London. Vietnam motorbike ban: It is estimated that Vietnam's capital, Hanoi, alone has more than five million motorcycles and scooters. But they are now being banned from the city to reduce congestion and pollution.

How your ETF investments are performing, January 10th update.
The markets have been red hot lately which has sent many sector ETF's running for highs as well. The S&P 500 (NYSE: SPY) has been all green since the start of the year boasting almost a 3% gain, and it's still January folks! The trend in the short term is arguably extended and many are expecting a cooling off period. Long term there is no arguing the trend is strong and consistent to the upside. The Nasdaq 100 (NASDAQ: QQQ) is in the same position but with slightly better gains. Almost 4% since the start of the new year and showing no signs of weakness. Short term it too is extended and many technical traders would prefer a short term pullback but the markets have not accommodated. Metals and Mining stocks (NYSE: XME) have been strong sending the XME to new highs on Wednesday. Since early November the sector has been incredibly strong making new highs seemingly every day. For now the trend is strong but also remains quite extended in the short term. Technical traders would be eagerly awaiting a dip to buy. Since November the XME is up over 25%. Financials (NYSE: XLF) continued their breakout this week, adding another 1.5%. With consistent volume pressure to the upside, there has been almost no fear of any kind of retreat. Since breaking out last week the XLF is now higher by 2.15%. Longer term the trend remains higher as investors believe that higher interest rates in 2018 will continue to fuel banks profits. Oil (NYSE: USO) continues its power trend higher, hitting new highs each day this week so far. Going back to the breakout in December, the USO is now higher almost 8% in an almost vertical move higher. This has also helped the oil service space (NYSE: XOP) which has also enjoyed a healthy rally in the short term. Mexico (NYSE: EWW) continues to under perform thanks to tax reform. Since the official passage of the bill the EWW has struggled to find investors now that the US is more competitive on a global scale. In the short term many are content to put money to work elsewhere. We're an investing service that also helps you keep your dough straight.

Gold Reaps Benefits of Failed Healthcare Reform, Hits 1-mth High
Gold prices ended the U.S. day session moderately up and hit a four-week high following last week's uptick. New money is flowing into gold, said Gary Wagner, publisher of the goldforecast.com, on Monday. After the failure to push through a healthcare reform package on Friday, Wagner noted that it has raised questions over President Trump's ability to deliver promised tax cuts and spending plans. That knocked stocks and the dollar to a four-month low and gold is reaping the benefits, he told Kitco News. April Comex gold settled the day at $1,255.70, up 0.58% on the day. May Comex silver settled the day at $18.108 an ounce, up 2%. Wagner explained that the metal needs an effective close over $1,265 and then the next real resistance level will be $1,300.

Alinova Holding S.A. - Mexico Market and Investments.
Currently Mexico turns out to be one of the most interesting countries for foreign investors thanks to a robust economy, stable political system, the proximity to the American market which, however, is particularly fond of because of NAFTA. The Federal Government (through all states and economic organizations) has identified a number of common productive sectors that arise as a base and as a culmination of the development and promotion of foreign investment in the coming years. The first, the sectors traditionally developed in Mexico, are Steel, agrofoods, Textile-Clothing, Footwear, Furniture, mining: have strong compatibility with the Italian strongest sectors, especially given the interest for a Mexican retraining in order to cover the 'entire production process (and not just manufacturing) investing in technology and development. The latter, the focus identified by the Government for the next few years, are in the conversion of the Textile-Clothing-Leather and Footwear in addition to want to come to the processing of products with high added value in the Automotive, electronics manufacturer, in Autoparti in logistics and, for the sectors with high technological content, Aerospace, Nanotechnology and Mechatronics. These sectors are differently distributed in the territory due to the different energy and environmental amenities or different tradition of state economic development. Generally present in every state food processing, mechanical engineering, the autoparti, textiles, mining and processing power; States with the most aptitude for the automotive industry (especially those neighboring the USA) or limitanei the Federal District (the true focus of the Mexican economy) have a greater aptitude for the development of the electronic sector, engineering and more generally for the sectors high technological potential. More faceted landscape relative to the energy which, while being reserved for national investment with regard to hydrocarbons, is an industry focus to promote for Mexico. The benefits of the investment in Mexico will be specified, varying from state to state, but consist mainly of political and economic stability, low taxation and production costs below the European average, good infrastructure network projected to North America, Asia and the Caribbean, with efficient support for the establishment of the company (immediacy bureaucratic incentives / remission of tax, method of settlement "Shelter"). In contrast, the investor may be faced with difficulties, while varying greatly depending on the location, are summarized as follows: 1) the actual complexity for states to obtain information on their industrial structure, due to the peculiarities of the contacts at the firm level; 2) difficulty (or ban) input for sampling and sometimes catalogs; 3) limitation of the banking structure for funding (which is more problem for the Mexican businessman who for the investor if any). In fact, the study has confirmed and deepened the considerable potential of the Mexican market for the Italian investor and is offered as a guide immediate and specific investment opportunities by sector and project.

Can Icahn Save Freeport McMoRan?
Zacks Stock Strategists, Tracey Ryniec and David Bartosiak, discuss the outlook for Freeport McMoRan (FCX) after its shares have plunged to multi-year lows. The company recently announced it was looking to sell its energy business, which it only just acquired in 2012 for about $9 billion. Getting back into energy meant a reunion of Freeport with its old energy business, McMoRan Exploration, which was spun-off in 1994. It also bought onshore and Gulf of Mexico driller Plains at that time. But with crude prices at multi-year lows, and some of its energy assets in expensive deep water drilling locations, the energy business has become a drag. Freeport says it wants to focus on its core mining business now. Freeport cut its dividend by 84% earlier this year, although even with the shares down sharply, it is still yielding about 1.9%. Activist investor Carl Icahn has taken an 8.8% stake in the company. Two of his associates were recently awarded seats on the Freeport board of directors which has been cut from 16 seats to 9 independent seats and 2 executive directors. Can Icahn turn the company around and return value to shareholders?

Westward Expansion: Crash Course US History #24
In which John Green teaches you about the Wild, Wild, West, which as it turns out, wasn't as wild as it seemed in the movies. When we think of the western expansion of the United States in the 19th century, we're conditioned to imagine the loner. The self-reliant, unattached cowpoke roaming the prairie in search of wandering calves, or the half-addled prospector who has broken from reality thanks to the solitude of his single-minded quest for gold dust. While there may be a grain of truth to these classic Hollywood stereotypes, it isn't a very big grain of truth. Many of the pioneers who settled the west were family groups. Many were immigrants. Many were major corporations. The big losers in the westward migration were Native Americans, who were killed or moved onto reservations. Not cool, American pioneers.

Trump Has Handed Over Control Of Our Country To Corporations - The Ring of Fire
A new report from ProPublica and The New York Times helps to uncover the industry ties within Donald Trump’s administration.  Control of our country has been handed over to corporations who want to exploit our resources, destroy our environment, and allow corporations to get away with severely deficient safety standards.  This is not acceptable, but this is what Republicans have always dreamt of doing. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link - https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/11/business/the-deep-industry-ties-of-trumps-deregulation-teams.html?smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur&_r=0 Spread the word! LIKE and SHARE this video or leave a comment to help direct attention to the stories that matter. And SUBSCRIBE to stay connected with Ring of Fire's video content! When Donald Trump was running for president, and after he won the electoral college vote, he promised us that he was going to drain the swamp in Washington, D.C. That's all we heard. Drain the swamp. Get rid of those insiders. Get rid of the corrupt and replace it with people who actually give a damn about you and me, folks. That's what he was going to do. As it turns out, what Donald Trump has done, according to a new joint report by ProPublica in the New York Times, is that he has staffed his White House, he has packed federal agencies, with industry insiders to the point that corporations have officially unofficially taken over our federal government. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Interior Department, which is in charge of leasing new coal mines and oil fields and things like that, has been completely taken over by fossil fuel interests, fossil fuel executives, fossil fuel lobbyists, workers from the fossil fuel industry, shareholders from the fossil fuel industry, people who have actively denied climate science and funded climate change denial. Those people are now in charge of our environmental and energy policies. Over at the FDA, pharmaceutical insiders. Over at OSHA, corporations being put in charge about what kind of rules they want corporations to have to follow to keep their workers safe, which ultimately means we're going to scale back worker protections because those cost corporations money. According to this ProPublica New York Times report, the same goes for damn near every single federal agency under Donald Trump. He has packed it to the brim with corporate insiders, with lawyers who used to represent the very industries that they're now supposed to be regulating. That is not how government is supposed to work. I know it happened during the Obama administration and happened under Bush and, to an extent, happened under Clinton and most of the folks before him, but the level at which it is happening under the Trump administration is unprecedented, and it is a very severe hazard to your health and well-being. When we have energy companies deciding energy policy, what do you think is going to win out? Wind and solar? The part of the energy industry that's actually booming and now employs more people than the fossil fuel industry? No. They're going to double down on things like coal and oil exploration. They're going to go back out into the Gulf of Mexico, drill more rigs. To hell with what happened with BP. It's not going to happen to us again, right? That is their policy. Over at the FDA, do you think those pharmaceutical insiders are going to put strict regulations on our prescription drugs? No. They're already trying to take away some of the process for drug approval at the FDA to make things go faster. We don't need to test these new drugs. We just need to get them out there so corporations can start making a profit from it. Oh, it causes people to get cancer and die? Eh, maybe not everybody who takes it will die, so it's still a win for big pharma. They'll still make all their profits. Yeah, they'll be hit with lawsuits, but whatever settlements and verdicts come from those lawsuits will still be less than the profits that the company made off their deadly drug.

American History - Part 133 - Harrison - Tariff Issue - Trusts fiasco leaves voters unhappy
LEO SCULLY: In eighteen seventy-nine, a new form of business organization was developed -- the trust. In a trust, stock owners of many competing companies give control of their stock to a committee, or group, of trustees. The trustees operate all the companies as one and pay profits to the stockholders. The profits would be high, because there would be no competition to drive down prices. One of the first trusts was formed by John D. Rockefeller in the oil industry. The stockholders of seventy-seven oil companies gave control of their stock to nine trustees of Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company. The nine men controlled ninety per cent of the nation's oil production. JACK WEITZEL: The success of the Standard Oil Company led to the creation of trusts in other industries. Soon there was a sugar trust, a salt trust, a steel trust, even a whisky trust. These huge corporations represented hundreds of millions of dollars. This great wealth made them very powerful. Public demands for action led the governments of fifteen states to pass anti-trust laws. But the state laws could do nothing. Most of the trusts were nationwide corporations which did business in many states. Public protest was so great that both parties in the eighteen eighty-eight elections promised to pass a federal law against trusts. JACK WEITZEL: A number of such bills were proposed. One offered by Senator John Sherman, a Republican, was approved by Congress. President Benjamin Harrison signed it into law in eighteen ninety. The Sherman Anti-trust Law sounded severe. It said it was illegal for a trust or any other organization to interfere with interstate commerce -- trade among the states. It was also illegal for any person or organization to form a monopoly -- to get control of a whole industry. The law ordered harsh punishment for any person found guilty of these crimes. It sounded like a strong law. But it was not. It was written in a very general way that left the courts to decide what the law really said. Opponents of the Sherman Anti-Trust Bill said its purpose was not to destroy trusts, but to make the public believe that trusts would be destroyed. So, Republican Congressman William McKinley of Ohio proposed a new tariff bill -- one that would raise import taxes higher than ever before. The tax already was about thirty-eight percent on most imported products. The new measure would raise it to almost fifty percent. JACK WEITZEL: Most western and southern congressmen opposed the tariff bill, because it would mean higher prices to the people of their states. But the bill could not pass without the support of some of them. So, supporters of the tariff bill offered a deal. If westerners voted for the tariff measure, then eastern lawmakers would support a silver purchase bill that the westerners wanted. The bill, known as the Sherman Silver Purchase Act, would have the government buy four-and-one-half-million ounces of silver each month. The government would pay for the silver with paper money -- treasury notes -- which could be exchanged for gold or silver money. LEO SCULLY: Western mines were producing huge amounts of silver. By selling it to the government, the mining interests hoped to keep the price of silver from falling. Western interests spoke in Congress now with a much stronger voice. In eighteen eighty-nine and eighteen ninety, six western territories became states. This added twelve more western representatives in the Senate and others in the House. The deal was agreed to. Both the McKinley Tariff Bill and the Sherman Silver Purchase Bill were approved by Congress and signed by President Harrison. As expected, the price of imported goods rose. And the people blamed the Republicans. JACK WEITZEL: In the congressional elections of eighteen ninety, the Republican Party suffered heavy losses. The Republican majority in the Senate was cut to eight. And not all the Republican senators would support the party on every issue. The Republicans lost control in the House of Representatives. Only eighty-eight were elected to House seats. Democrats elected two hundred thirty-five Representatives. Voters also elected nine House members and two Senators from a new political organization -- the People's Party. The new party was born in farming areas of the West and South. It was a party of protest, formed by men who refused to support either of the two old parties. A few years later, farmers began to build new organizations. Like the granges, they began as social and economic groups. By the late eighteen eighties, many of these groups had united into two large organizations. One, with more than one million members, was the Southern Alliance. The other, with fewer members, was the National Farmers' Alliance. Members of the two groups began to unite for political action. That will be our story on the next program of THE MAKING OF A NATION
