U.S. dollar outlook darkens as trade war looms
* * * Gertrude Chavez-Dreyfuss Reuters Friday, March 2, 2018 NEW YORK -- The U.S. dollar could face headwinds if President Donald Trump's proposals to impose stiff tariffs on steel and aluminum imports are enacted, with the biggest risk stemming from the possible flight of capital flows needed to finance ballooning U.S. deficits. Currency markets, in general, dislike any form of trade intervention and previous protectionist efforts by the U.S. government have resulted in dollar weakness. "The

Blow Back 
Is there any doubt that the Democratic Party will be blamed for the government shutdown brought on by the DACA showdown? They insisted on a DACA deal that would have enabled everybody-and-his-uncle in a DACA person’s family to migrate to this country, a formula known as chain migration. Did they really believe that would go over? Or is it just more identity politics posturing? I’m not the first observer to point out that it looks like the Democratic Party puts the interests of non-citizens above

  Donald Trump – Modern Day Walpole 
“Hatred of Walpole was almost the only feeling which was common to them. On this one point they concentrated their whole strength. With gross ignorance, or gross dishonesty, they represented the Minister as the main grievance of the state. His dismissal, his punishment, would prove the certain cure for all the evils which the nation suffered. What was to be done after his fall, how misgovernment was to be prevented in the future, were questions to which there were as many answers as there were n

Forecast 2018 — What Could Go Wrong 
Markets If you take your cues from Consensus Trance Central — the cable news networks, The New York Times, WashPost, and HuffPo — Trump is all that ails this foundering empire. Well, Trump and Russia, since the Golden Golem of Greatness is in league with Vladimir Putin to loot the world, or something like that. Since I believe that the financial system is at the heart of today’s meta-question (What Could Go Wrong?), it would be perhaps more to the point to ask: what has held this matrix of racke

Part 3 Sleaze, Various Other Truth Bombs
We scratched the surface on Government, finance, politics and the rule of law so far.  Today, let’s take a look at sleaze and fraud.  The sleaze part is not just “sensational”.  It is important because in many cases it crosses any decent person’s red line and should piss anyone off who reads it or discovers it.   The first part is certainly not all inclusive but is wide ranging.  That said, 2018 looks to be shaping up as barn burner for the arrests of child molesters and human traffickers.  No

  What Now 
“Contact with Russians.” Grown men and women, doubling and re-doubling down on a political fantasy, repeat this prayer hour after hour on the cable channels and Web waves as if trying to exorcise a nation possessed by the unholy hosts of Hell. But such vicars of the news as Wolf Blitzer, Rachel Maddow, Chuck Todd, and Dean Baquet (of The New York Times) only shove the country closer to a cliff of constitutional crisis. To a certain class of people — a class that includes a lot of Intellectuals-Y

  Swamp-O-Rama
What America might want to know right now is: how come Hillary Clinton doesn’t have any legal problems? Why aren’t DOJ investigators examining the financial records of the Clinton Foundation? You would think somebody would want to find out how over $120 million of Russian “charitable donations” ended up on its ledgers around the time that Secretary of State HRC approved the Uranium One deal — compared to which, Bill Clinton’s $500,000 payment from a Russian bank for giving a speech around the sa

  The Informant Cometh 
When you consider all the shadowy creatures scuttling around the backstage interstices of the Deep State, it’s a little wondrous that someone like this hasn’t stepped into the light before. Apparently now, a person whose name will soon be plastered across the pixel-verse, has been given clearance by the Justice Department to come forth and sing to the various house and senate committees about a fishy deal involving Russia and the Clinton dynasty. The broad outlines of Uranium-Gate are already lo

Will North Korea Boost Gold Prices Part I
In August, tensions between the U.S. and North Korea rose after Trump’s famous remarks that threats to the U.S. from Pyongyang would be met with “fire and fury”. The relations between these two countries have not been so tense for a long time. What does it imply for the gold market? Let’s start with the no-brainer: the conflict about Korean Peninsula is a very old one. It implies that investors are used to it and will not panic after the first dramatic news. Some level of hostile relationships a

The Death of Abenomics; the Rise of Interest Rates
Job approval numbers for Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe are in freefall. Abe's support has now fallen below 30%, and his Liberal Democratic Party recently suffered heavy losses stemming from a slew of scandals revolving around illegal subsidies received by a close associate of his wife. But as we have seen back on this side of the hemisphere, the public’s interest in these political scandals can be easily overlooked if the underlying economic conditions are favorable. For instance, voters wer

The Answer To The Most Frequently Asked Question
It’s early Tuesday, and it’s hard to recall a day where complacency reigned so supremely.  The product, of course, of the historic market manipulation that exponentially “stair-stepped” on Election night – when Trump’s “BrExit times 10” dealt a mortal blow to TPTB, forever ending America’s role as a global “superpower.”  Not because Trump the person makes a whit of difference – as frankly, it would be impossible for him to be worse than Hillary (and Bill) Clinton.  But instead, as said “powers t

The strenuous effort of “Resistance” passengers in the Limousine-of-State to shove Donald Trump out of the driver’s seat continues into what would normally be the news-wasteland of midsummer. Last week it was the smoking popgun of Trump Junior’s meeting with a Russian lawyer purported (by British music promoter Rob Goldstein) to be associated with the “Russian Crown Prosecutor” (no such office in a country without a monarch). The news caused the usual commotion among the very media mouthpieces w

Thomas Frank: The Demise of the Democratic Party Establishment: Hubris, Nemesis, and the Credibility Trap
"What kind of nation are we when we give tax breaks to billionaires, but we can't take care of the elderly and the children." Bernie Sanders It started by selling their souls to Big Money and class elitism. In this they joined forces with the Republican party which declared its allegiance to Mammon many years ago, and has served it faithfully ever since. It started when the Democratic party establishment repudiated and then abandoned the New Deal principles and ideals under Bill Clinton bec

Central Bank Hubris That Would Make Icarus Blanche
In Greek mythology, hubris is defined as excessive pride or self-confidence, in defiance of the gods, which ultimately brings about one’s demise.  Synonyms include arrogance, conceit, self-importance, egotism, pomposity, superciliousness, and superiority – with some of the most famous mythological examples being Phaethon, Narcissisus, Arachne, and Cassiopeia; and in modern times, Richard Nixon, Tiger Woods, and Mel Gibson.  However, the “poster child” of hubris, in my view, is Icarus; who, in de

The Technicolor Swan 
When I think of the Democratic Party these days, the image instantly comes to mind of little Linda Blair playing the demon-possessed child in the classic horror movie, The Exorcist (1973), most particularly the scene in which she spews a stream of pea soup-like projectile vomit into the face of kindly old Max von Sydow, as Father Merrin, the priest come to rescue her. The pea soup represents the sort of ideology that the Democratic Party has spewed out in recent years — a toxic mush of racial id

McCain: Russia is a Bigger Threat Than ISIS; Comey Investigated Clinton Over 'Fake News'
Content originally published at iBankCoin.com Writing about McCain is like writing about Maxine Waters. Both are disconnected from reality, crooked as the day is long. Both have an agenda that runs counter to the goals of ordinary American plebs. In this case, McCain clearly has an agenda in the Ukraine. He panders to them and uses their internal struggles vs Moscow to foment anti-Russian rhetoric in the United States. How many US marines have the Russians killed over the past 10 years? How many

RED ALERT: Attempted Political Coup Now Taking Place In D.C. With Effort To Impeach Trump For Fabricated “Obstruction Of Justice”
This article was originally published by Mike Adams at NaturalNews.com This is a high priority alert. The Washington Post, now exposed as a CIA propaganda front, and the New York Times (a fiction-pimping anti-American rag owned by a Mexican national) have tag-teamed their way to their desired finish line: The impeachment and indictment of President Donald J. Trump. This has been accomplished through the publishing of a seemingly endless stream of utterly fabricated fake news stories, nearly all
