2-Week High in Gold Price as G20 Drops 'Free Trade', UK Names Brexit Date, Big Russian Build-Up in Crimea
GOLD PRICES rose to a 2-week high on Monday morning in London before easing back as the US Dollar extended its drop and world stock markets also slipped following the weekend's change to the G20 group of nations' stance on protectionist trade policy, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault. Downing Street today announced that UK Prime Minister May will formally start the countdown to Brexit by triggering Article 50 o

Stellar Performance by Marine Le Pen on 60 Minutes
Marine le Pen put in a stellar performance on 60 Minutes on Sunday. Le pen came across as very presidential. The interview, in French but translated, is sure to boost her standing in the French presidential election on May 7. CBS has a transcript of the interview at Marine Le Pen Says She’s Not Waging a Religious War. Anderson Cooper: The polls say you can’t win. Marine Le Pen (translation): Yes. They also said that Brexit wasn’t going to happen, that Donald Trump wasn’t going to be elected, w

Central banks and gold 
The very near future is likely to see a sea-change in central bankers’ attitude to the gold allocation in their reserves. The failure of G20 monetary policy since the financial crisis is causing a general rethink, which may eventually lead to a new policy direction.For now, that is undecided, beyond a growing acceptance that today’s monetary policy does not work and the assumptions of recent decades, that gold as money should be phased out, might have been a mistake.The idea, that Western centra

The Deep State’s Gold Scam And The Demonization Of Russia - Dave Kranzler/Stewart Dougherty 
Guest post from Stewart Dougherty: As the Fiscal Year 2018 budget, and particularly its war component are floated, it has become clear that without continued, massive military spending, paid for with mass-produced electrons masquerading as money, U. S. GDP would collapse, taking the country’s financial and monetary systems with it. The nation, whose real economy has been hollowed out, for profit, by the Deep State plunderers, has become significantly reliant upon deliberately contrived war

  “That War You Ordered….” 
The gaslighting of the American public continues, with Gaslighter-in-Chief, The New York Times, whipping up a frenzy of Russia paranoia.* It reminds me of an old gambit in fly fishing called the “artificial hatch.” Trout like to gorge on mayfly nymphs as they rise out of a stream and shuck their nymphal shells to fly away as winged adults. The bugs do this in bunches, at a particular time of day, according to sub-species. This “hatch” drives the

Gold Price Hits $1230, Silver Comex Bets Jump, as France's Le Pen + Ukraine 'Add to Trump Risk' on Iran
GOLD PRICES extended last week's 2.4% gains to reach new 3-month highs on Monday in London, briefly breaking above $1230 per ounce even as the US Dollar rose on the FX market amid news of French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen calling for 'Frexit' from the European Union, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault. Silver rose alongside, but lagged the new highs in gold prices to hit $17.66 per ounce – some 6 cents short of Fri

Preposterous Rumors From Pelosi on Russia, Trump, Sanctions
It did not take long for the economic illiterates and rumor-mongers to chime in on Trump’s lifting of some trivial sanctions on Russia. Minority leader Nancy Pelosi led the way, repeating a preposterous rumor that “Russians have something on Trump” Please consider Yanking Russian Sanctions ‘Staggeringly Dangerous’. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) warned Thursday that any move by the Trump administration to roll back sanctions against Russia would fray international alliances and

  The Deep State, Trump, and JFK 
Donald Trump is a revolutionary, and government establishments loathe revolutionaries. This has been so since human societies began. Those who threaten any society’s prevailing power blocs with a diminishment of their prestige and influence are always targeted by those power blocs as an enemy to be undercut, smeared, and even exterminated if necessary. This is a law of politics that is as assured as the flow of tides and the paths of the planets. What is the Deep State? It is the vast array of b

Ron Paul Warns: “Second Financial Bubble Going To Burst Soon… Even Trump Can’t Stop It”
This article was written by Jack Burns and originally published at The Free Thought Project. Editor’s Comment: By all appearances, President Trump is doing his damndest to turn around the economy, revitalize jobs and bring back prosperity. But the larger trends are already in place; the cycle is turning, and the bust cannot be put off forever. Federal Reserve policy has literally set the country up for collapse, and though the central bank has been very creative in making the impossible work, an

Liberals, Not Trump, to Blame for Backlash
Here’s an interesting view in the Wall Street Journal that will ring a bell for for many readers: Liberals Killed the Freedom of Movement. By suppressing debate about Islam, nationalism and terror, the left set the stage for today’s backlash. Politicians across the West are saying the same thing in what is shaping up to be the widest rollback of the freedom of movement in decades. It’s not just right-wing nationalists like Marine Le Pen in France or Hungary’s Viktor Orbán. Centrists get it, too

The World’s Most – And Least – Miserable Countries in 2016
Authored by Steve H. Hanke of the Johns Hopkins University. Follow him on Twitter @Steve_Hanke. In what follows, I update my annual Misery Index calculations. A Misery Index was first constructed by economist Art Okun as a way to provide President Lyndon Johnson with a snapshot of the economy.  The original Misery Index was just a simple sum of a nation’s annual inflation rate and its unemployment rate. The Misery Index has been modified several times, first by Robert Barro of Harvard and then b

Divergent Views: How Well Will Trump Get Along With His Own Cabinet?
Trump’s cabinet picks disagree with him in key areas such as the deficit, trade, foreign policy, and climate change. Those divergent views will pose a challenge for the incoming administration. The president-elect’s pick for budget director, Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R., S.C.), has opposed raising the debt ceiling, but Mr. Trump has proposed steep tax cuts and large increases in defense and infrastructure spending that many economists believe will cause the deficit to grow. Several of his cabinet se

Exit, Hope and Change
Yes, that was a gag. By now, anyone in this country still of sound mind knows that Barack Obama presided through eight years of remarkable continuity — of changeless conditions that left a great many hopeless. As the days of his tenure dwindle, what do we make of the departing 44th president? He played the role with cool-headed decorum, but that raises the question: was he just playing a role? From the get-go, he made himself hostage to some of t

Things are certainly heating up and we head into the close of 2016. It almost sounds like a James Bond action thriller, but sadly these events are actually taking place and all at the same time.

Ukraine Nationalizes PrivatBank to “Preserve Stability” (Hide Insolvency)
Ukraine’s largest bank, PrivatBank, is no longer private. To ‘preserve stability of country’s financial system’ (hide insolvency), Ukraine Nationalizes its Largest Bank. Ukraine’s government moved late on Sunday to nationalise PrivatBank, the war-scarred country’s largest and most systemically important commercial bank, amid concerns over the state of its balance sheet. The government pledged to fully protect depositors and said the takeover, proposed by the central bank and approved by the na

Even before he takes office, President-elect Trump is turning the world upside down.It has become clear his attitude towards Russia and China is very different from that of his predecessors. Amazingly, he is already wresting power from the deep state, causing it great resentment, which under Obama, Clinton and the Bushes, ran geopolitical policy.

  Trump Takes Over: Pros and Cons 
I wake up every morning and express the most euphoric thanks that Donald Trump won the presidency on November 8th. The immense feeling of relief at not having to endure the Hilldebeast and her odious horndog husband in the White House for four years is indescribable. It’s akin to waking up from a grotesque nightmare and realizing that what I thought was a lethal danger consuming my life was just a dream. There is still some sanity left in America after all. But as ecstatic as I am with the resul
