Will the Democrats Trigger Another 2011 Debt Ceiling Crisis Just to Stop the Wall?
Do you remember when GOP Senators and Representatives were portrayed as literal monsters for forcing the Government to shut down? We were told back in 2013 that if GOP-lead Congress didn’t keep the Government open… we would face literal Armageddon. A few headlines from that time period: Republicans Shutdown the Government for Nothing (the Atlantic) Like Dr. Frankenstein, the GOP is trapped in a burning windmill with a monster of their own making (Charleston City Paper) Ted Cruz: the GOP’s Self-M

  Krunch Time for Korean Krackpot Despot, Kim Jong-Un: Missile Crisis Countdown Has Begun
The following article by David Haggith was first published on The Great Recession Blog: The Korean missile crisis has never been hotter. Trump is turning the screws on everyone to force action. China, Japan, and South Korea join in threatening Kim Jong-un with imminent war, but North Korea’s crackpot despot isn’t backing down. Trump has dispatched war ships, including the USS Carl Vinson, to North Korea as North Korea continues to show signs that it is preparing to do another nuclear test on Sa

Death Of A Presidency, An Empire, And A Monetary System
I’m 46 years old, and grew up in New York; and thus, know a lot about Donald Trump.  Consequently, if at any time before last summer, you told me he’d one day be President, I would have laughed until I cried.  After all, a man famous for bad marriages; a big, insulting mouth; and massively overleveraged investments in some of the worst imaginable businesses – from Atlantic City casinos, to the United States Football League – was as far from what I’d consider “Presidential material” as I could im

Marine Le Pen-The Potential Brexit Times 100
You want drama. ..and TRUTH?  Well, let’s start with this amazing, must see, three-minute 2009 clip from Ron Paul; or, as I deemed him five years ago, “America’s greatest man.”  Given what I discussed in Friday’s “did America just start World War III”; and yesterday’s “beating of the drums”; it couldn’t be more appropriate – as in it, he asks “what if” America’s foreign policy is misguided; and “what if” it continues down the horrifying road it appears dead set on taking. At this point, I have l

The Oil and Gas War in Syria – 4 Maps
Andy’s Notes; The Qatar-Syria pipeline is the one we discussed back in 2013. At that time Saudi Arabia had taken a pass on allowing the pipeline through its territory. The original plan was to take it through Iraq and Syria, with Damascus’ parallel refusal being the main hitch in the get-along. There are some very sensitive geopolitics and geoeconomics at work here. Rest assured the mainstream media hasn’t got even the slightest clue beyond the party line that shows up on their teleprompters. Tu

  Bombs Away! 
Close your eyes, click your heels three times, and tell me if you actually know what the fuck is happening in Syria. There’s an awful lot about the poison gas attack that doesn’t add up for the casual observer. It was only a week ago that the US enunciated a new policy that we would be content for Bashar al Assad to remain in power presiding over the Syrian government — after years of grousing and threats against him. Apparently Trump Central had concluded that Assad was a better alternative tha

Silver Price Wrong-Foots Comex Speculators, Jumps to $18 as Dollar Sinks After Trump Folds on Obamacare
SILVER PRICES jumped through $18 per ounce Monday lunchtime in London, outstripping the rising gold price as US stock markets opened sharply lower and the Dollar sank after President Donald Trump abandoned his attempt to repeal Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act – a key plank of his election pledges. Despite House Speaker Paul Ryan working "very, very hard" to garner enough support to replace Obamacare, Trump said he will now move o

Gold Prices Hit 3-Week High as 'Trumpflation' Fails Ahead of Obamacare Vote, Silver Platinum Lag
GOLD PRICES hit new 3-week highs in London trade Wednesday, rising above $1247 per ounce as Asian stock markets closed sharply lower and European equities dipped on what pundits and analysts called worries that the 'Trump reflation trade' is fading. Failure to pass tomorrow's vote on the new US President's repeal and replacement of Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act " could imperil tax and spending reforms" Bloomberg quotes "leading

Global War Approaches: North Korea Warns: “If A Single Bullet Is Fired We WILL Nuke The United States”
With tensions heating up on the Korean Peninsula after North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un fired several test missiles into Japanese-controlled territory, and following President Trump’s deployment of Navy Seals whose sole purpose will be to decapitate the leadership of the communist state, Un issued a shocking warning on Sunday. If even a single bullet is fired, says Un,  his country will immediately initiate a nuclear attack on the United States. In a statement, North Korea’s Foreign Ministry sa

Real or Fake: Obama’s Brother Just Tweeted An Image Of The Former President’s Kenyan Birth Certificate
The brother of former President Barack Obama, a vocal supporter of President Trump, has tweeted an image purportedly showing the President’s original Kenyan birth certificate. Malik Obama, who supported his brother in 2008 but backed Trump in the 2016 election, sent out a series of Tweets suggesting his disdain for his brother, while also including a scanned image of a birth certificate bearing the President’s name, the names of his parents, and his self-admitted birth date on a document from th

Fear Mongering, F.U.D.-ing And Fleecing-Rinse And Repeat, Until The Cartel’s Well Runs Dry
Today, we’re going to start in Europe – where the world’s second largest; and soon-to-be-defunct; currency is again plunging, as the equivalent of political and economic “nuclear bombs” are serially crashing.  In other words, the dollar – i.e., the meaningless “dollar index”; which matters not a whit to European gold investors, who are patting themselves on the back for having had the foresight to have invest in history’s best inflation hedge.  Thehe price of gold in Euros is just 16% from its a

Great Expectations (Not)
Halloween’s coming super-early this year and it will be a shocking surprise to those currently busy looking for Russians behind every potted plant in Washington DC. First, accept the premise that your country has lost its mind. This is what happens when societies (and individuals) can’t face the true quandaries of a particular moment in their history. All of their attention gets channeled into fantasy: spooks, sexual freakery, conspiracies, persecution narratives, savior fairy tales. It’s been q

The “Strong Dollar” Catch-22
If anyone claims Precious Metals are not relentlessly suppressed – whilst the “Dow Jones Propaganda Average” is persistently supported, in an increasingly desperate attempt to delay “Economic Mother Nature’s” inevitable arrival – consider gold and silver “trading” since the election.  Let alone, since I published the “12:00 PM EST cap of last resort” six weeks ago, after watching this hideous “algo” for more than a decade. Here’s the last three days’ “trading” – with yesterday’s suppression bein

The NEW U.S. Economic Mythology - Jeff Nielson
The Corporate media lies to us, all of the time. This is not an assertion, merely an elementary observation. With a real “free press”, we see occasional moments where different media outlets may agree on the interpretation of particular events and/or the relative importance of events. All other times, we see a divergence of opinion between media outlets. This is what we would expect to see. Homo sapiens are a contrarian species. We all have our own ideas – or at least we used to.

'Momentum Traders' Keep Gold Prices Near 3-Month High Ahead of Trump, Yellen Speeches
GOLD PRICES remained close to 3-month highs on Monday morning in London as world stock markets slipped further from last week's new all-time highs ahead of this week's key speeches from US President Trump and Fed Chair Janet Yellen, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault. Gold traded in a $6 range around last week's close of $1257 per ounce, near the highest level since Trump's presidential election victory last November.

Le Pen Calls for “Europe of Nations”, Blasts EU as “the Problem”
Striking back at the nannycrats who want “more Europe” including a “superstate”, French presidential candidate Marine le Pen instead seeks a “Europe of Nations”. Bloomberg reports Le Pen Says French Foreign Policy Must Be Decided in Paris. Laying out her foreign-policy vision in a speech in Paris, Le Pen spoke of a world based on nation states that pursue their own interest and preserve their own cultures without interference. “To assure the freedom of the French, there is no price too high too

Out With The Old, In With The New!
It’s Friday morning, and I’m on fire, for many reasons – starting with thus far, being decidedly correct about my “2.5%, ‘Nuff said” theory, for the same reason I was right about my “3.0%, ‘Nuff said” prediction of January 2014; i.e., interest rates cannot rise any further, without annihilating the global economy.  That, and gold rising yesterday due to “bullish” economic data, like the Philly Fed’s comically fraudulent “ten-sigma” surge to three-plus decade highs.  Which, just as I called out a

Trump’s vast power to reshape the Fed could lead to complete mayhem for markets
BusinessInsider/Pedro Nicolaci da Costa/02-14-17 President Donald Trump already had ample leeway to reshape the Federal Reserve, with Janet Yellen’s term as chair expiring early next year and two key slots on the central bank’s board left open after Republicans failed to bring President Barack Obama’s longstanding nominees to a vote. Now, with the sudden resignation of Daniel Tarullo, Trump pretty much has free rein over the powerful US central bank. PG View: If the plan is to cut taxes and unle

By her public utterances, Betsy DeVos seemed spectacularly unqualified to lead the bureaucratic enterprise called the US Department of Education. But you really have to wonder: could she do any worse than the exalted mandarins of educational bureaucracy who preceded her? There is so much not right with public education these days that it could be the poster child for institutional collapse in America. Certainly in terms of the money spent per

Trump adopts aggressive posture toward Iran after missile launch
Reuters/Steve Holland and Matt Spetalnick/02-02-17 The White House put Iran “on notice” on Wednesday for test-firing a ballistic missile and said it was reviewing how to respond, taking an aggressive posture toward Tehran that could raise tensions in the region. While the exact implications of the U.S. threat were unclear, the new administration signaled that President Donald Trump intended to do more, possibly including imposing new sanctions, to curb what he sees as defiance of a nuclear deal
