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

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. What do we

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

SILVER PRICES hit new 3-month highs and gold rose to the highest in 11 weeks against the Dollar on Thursday as world stock markets stalled near record highs amid news of new US president Donald Trump slamming down the phone on key Pacific ally Australia's prime minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Is Germany a Currency Manipulator? China? Arguably Yes, Under Bill Obama Signed: Full Blown Currency War on Deck
One problem in labeling a “currency manipulator” has been the lack of a definition of the term. But thanks to the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015, that Obama signed, there is now a definition. It’s likely Obama wanted the bill as a threat, but Trump is unlikely to stop with threats. A full blown currency war is highly likely. Eurointelligence explains via email … A currency manipulator is not what you think it is. A difficulty often encountered in policy discussions is that

Furor Time 
It’s only taken a week for President Trump to give the body politic an immigration enema. The aim, perhaps, was to flush out a set of bad ideas that Barack Obama had managed over eight years to instate as “normal.” Namely, that it’s unnecessary to enforce the immigration laws, or cruel and unusual to do so, or that national borders are a barbarous anachronism, or that federal laws are optional in certain self-selected jurisdictions.

Flashback 2006: Senators Clinton and Obama Vote for Secure Fence Act, Bush Signs Bill
Inquiring minds are taking a flashback look at the Secure Fence Act of 2006, signed by president Bush. The Secure Fence Act of 2006’s goal is to help secure America’s borders to decrease illegal entry, drug trafficking, and security threats by building 700 miles (1,100 km) of physical barriers along the Mexico-United States border. Additionally, the law authorizes more vehicle barriers, checkpoints, and lighting as well as authorizes the Department of Homeland Security to increase the use of ad

Trump Files Early With FEC For 2020 Candidacy, Outmaneuvers Nonprofits
A document from the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) indicates that Donald Trump took steps last week to outmaneuver nonprofit organizations, leaving them unable to officially campaign against him over the next few years of his Presidency. Filed on January 20th, 2017, the letter states that, while not an official announcement for reelection, Donald Trump has filed an FEC Form 2 in order to "ensure compliance with the Federal Election Campaign Act."

  Trump to Build Wall, Punish Sanctuary Cities, Add 5,000 Border Agents: “Big Day, Mexico Will Pay” Says Trump 
Color me wrong. I thought sanity regarding a US-Mexican wall would prevail after the election. Not only will we have a wall, but the US will add 5,000 border agents, crack down on “sanctuary cities”, and suspend our refugee program. Coming right up, Trump Will Sign Two Executive Orders on Immigration. President Donald Trump will sign two executive orders on Wednesday, including one calling for a “large physical barrier” on the border with Mexico, the White House announced. Press secretary Sean
