Maple Gold Mines – Exploration Work Continues To Develop New Greenfield Targets
Matthew Horner, President and CEO of Maple Gold Mines joins me to recap the recent news on the development of new exploration targets at the Douay Project in Quebec. The project is large and with an already defined resource of over 3 million ounces (indicated and inferred) but the Company is now looking at greenfield targets that have not been explored in the past. All of this work is being completed with the goal of increasing the growth opportunities and attracting strategic investors.
Please email me with any questions you have for the team over at Maple Gold Mines – Fleck@kereport.com.
Update On The Breakdown In Bitcoin
With Bitcoin breaking down over the past week and now approaching the $5,000 level I wanted to bring Ryan Wilday back on the show. Ryan is the Bitcoin analysts over at Avi Gilburt’s Elliott Wave Trader Website. While there could be a bottom in place for cryptocurrencies shortly there is a potential of one final washout before it becomes a solid trade.

Chris Temple gets an update from Steve Hanson of International Frontier Resources (TSXV-IFR; OTCQB-IFRTF)
In this conversation from this past week, Chris gets an update on the next development phase of Mexico-based International Frontier Resources. It’s important to grasp the bullish environment in that country, even as the crude oil price has fallen sharply in the U.S. and really plunged in Canada. IFR’s initial oil production of the last couple months is bringing a higher price than WTI to the company. Next, as you’ll hear, IFR is set to drill its first horizontal well at its Tecolutla field.

Segment 1 & 2
This is so sad, but so true.
I am posting this and others because I was asked to by a member of the clergy.
After a lifetime, the Catholic Church has finally driven me out
BY MELINDA HENNEBERGER firstname.lastname@example.org
For months, American Catholics had been asked to be patient just a little longer. We were promised that the church’s “summer of shame,” following only the latest revelations about the systemic cover-ups of clerical sex abuse, would finally be addressed this week in Baltimore at the biannual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
This wouldn’t be just one more round of forced apologies, either, but would involve action — and maybe even a vote on a new standard of conduct for bishops and an outside review commission.
Only, to the astonishment of no one past the age of reason, that didn’t happen after all.
Instead, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, president of the bishops conference, who has himself shielded at least one predator, announced that the Vatican had insisted on delaying any action until after a February summit.
Let’s not be hasty, right? It would be funny if it weren’t so tragic. Yet apparently, these men need a code of conduct to know not to shield rapists. And they need time to reach universal consensus to on a proposal that would simply ask bishops to promise not to lead a “double life.”
No one can accuse me of being hasty. But after a lifetime of stubborn adherence on my part and criminal behavior on yours, your excellencies, you seem to have finally succeeded in driving me away. I’m not even sure there’s such a thing as a former Catholic, but I’m about to find out.
My hopes for this Baltimore confab weren’t ever high, because fool me 6,000 times, shame on you. But that 6,001st time, well, I’m just all out of willingness to be conned into believing you who’ve so long seen the devastation of innocents principally as a PR problem are ever going to change.
Like others who’ve had more than enough of your betrayals and arrogance, I haven’t been back to Mass since June. That’s when a man I thought I knew pretty well, a man who unlike other church leaders amid the abuse scandals of 2002 seemed to understand the depth of the damage done, was himself disgraced.
After “credible and substantiated” allegations that the now former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick had taken advantage of seminarians, assaulted an altar boy in 1971 and even, because evil knows no shame, abused the first child he’d ever baptized, he was shipped off to the quiet of a Kansas friary — thanks so much for thinking of us out here on the prairie! — to pray, repent, and so far, stick to his story that he’s done nothing wrong.
Then in August, we got the Pennsylvania grand jury report detailing more than 1,000 cases of abuse by more than 300 priests over seven decades. Across the country, other states have launched similar …read more
The Vatican is forcing the Catholic Church out of Existence
A forty four year Catholic and a devout Christian is being slowly forced out of the Catholic Church. Big Al shares Cal Thomas’s opinion. How about you?
The shame of the Catholic Church
BY CAL THOMAS Tribune Content Agency
One doesn’t have to be Roman Catholic or even Christian to recognize the great good the Catholic Church has done. America would be worse off were it not its pro-life stance and numerous acts of charity.
But good works are sometimes diluted or even overwhelmed by evil works, and it is the evil works of pedophile priests that threaten to sully the good the church has done.
But what should trouble not only Catholics but non-Catholics too is the latest statement from the Vatican regarding the sexual abuse scandal, a scandal that has prompted many Catholics to leave the church and the faith altogether.
In a letter to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops meeting in Baltimore, the Vatican, as reported by U.S. News & World Report, requested that U.S. bishops “wait until after the Vatican-convened global meeting on sex abuse takes place in February” to take action on the sexual abuse issue plaguing the church. “The conference of bishops had expected to focus … on measures to combat abuse, including establishing a new code of conduct.”
Is it just a question of timing, or yet another attempt to avoid dealing with the crisis?
The church has long been reluctant to go to law enforcement about cases of sexual abuse by priests, choosing instead to have its own officials handle the cases themselves, or as was most often the case, suppress them, moving suspected clergy from parish to parish, threatening the safety of children, and thereby continuing a pattern of depravity and neglect.
Anne Barrett Doyle, co-director of BishopAccountability.org , an organization that compiles instances of clergy abuse, is quoted in The Washington Post: “What we see here is the Vatican again trying to suppress even modest progress by the U.S. Bishops. We’re seeing where the problem lies, which is with the Vatican.”
The Post reports the U.S. Bishops “expressed a mixture of disappointment, acceptance and frustration at the news from Rome.” How about outrage, which is what victims groups have rightly expressed?
Law enforcement has a right and an obligation to investigate these cases. Where abuse can be proved, prosecutors have an equal right and obligation to hold the guilty accountable. Abusers break the laws of God, which they promised to obey, and the laws enacted by legislators, to which they should adhere. Breaking God’s laws, if one believes Catholic doctrine, puts you in danger of eternal damnation. Breaking human laws should send lawbreakers to prison. This is not just an internal matter for the Catholic Church, which has failed to deliver on promises to purge the evil in its midst. Frequent excuses that these are old allegations do not ring true and certainly do not excuse either the behavior or …read more
