Russiatosis 
Support this blog by visiting Jim’s Patreon Page! Russia hysteria has become a full-blown national psychosis at a moment in history when a separate array of troubles poses the real threat to America’s well-being. Most of these have to do with the country’s swan dive into bankruptcy, but meeting them honestly would force uncomfortable choices on the grifters and caitiffs in congress. Meanwhile, the Treasury Dept is burning through its dwindling cash reserves, and all government activities will f

Reconciling the Us Dollar Outlook with the Super Bullish Gold and Silver Cots...
Because the dollar has such an important bearing on everything, especially the Precious Metals, it is timely for us to take a close look at it here after its recent steep drop, for as some of you may have seen, a number of indicators pertaining to the dollar suggest that, possibly after some further downside it is likely to bounce, or at least take a rest in a sideways range for a while, before the decline perhaps resumes in earnest. We’ll start by looking at a couple of these indicators. The la

Devaluations of the 1930s Don't Justify Today's Funny Money Excess
Without question, the Great Depression was a time when the political consensus moved from a Classical “hard money” approach towards a Mercantilist “soft money” approach — leading, ultimately, to today’s “print until the pain goes away” reaction. Actually, this trend had started in the later 19th century, and was not fully expressed until the 1970s – an evolution stretching over a hundred years or more. But, the experience of the Great Depression period of the 1930s st

The End Of The Cycle: “The Government Will Gladly Enter A War To Cleanse The Balance Sheet And Cull The Herd”
In the days following the 241st anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the country is in an even more precarious position than it was in 1776.  We face a situation of a fiat currency about to collapse as the consumer-based economy follows.  Whether orchestrated by our imperialistic government or following actions of a hostile foreign nation (prompted or unprompted) the government will gladly enter a war to “cleanse” the balance sheet and cull the herd.  Concurrently, the

Enter The NatGas Cartel
The King Dollar is mortally wounded. Many notice but the masses seem largely unaware. Since 1971, the Gold Standard has been removed from its anchor position. But since 1973, the Petro-Dollar has taken its place. It has called for crude oil sales led by the Saudis and OPEC to be transacted in USDollar terms, for oil surpluses to be stored in USTreasury Bonds, and for some kickbacks from the Saudis to the USMilitary complex for weapons purchases. Of course, the US is ready willing and able to cre

  Suicide by Stupidity 
But if Mr. Trump agrees to work with Mr. Putin despite a list of Russian transgressions beginning with the annexation of Crimea and ending with its interference in the 2016 presidential election, he will also look weak while Mr. Putin can claim that he reconstructed the relationship. —The New York Times America wakes up to astonishing bullshit from its so-called Newspaper of Record in this lead front-page propaganda dump du jour. Granted, American education has succeeded in destroying the criti

Time for a new gold standard for Asia
Over half the world’s population, living in the Eurasian land mass, understands that gold is money. The leaders of the Asian nations also know that this is true as well. The leaders of the security and economic alliance of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, which now incorporates most of these peoples, also know that to become independent of Western hegemony and to forge their own way, they must abandon Western financial systems and markets, replacing them with a new monetary order, serving

VIX Spike Prediction Revisited
Nearly 2 weeks ago, we issued a research/analysis report indicating our analysts had seen a VIX pattern that forecasted a VIX spike on June 29th of this month to coincide with a potential explosive move in the markets. Today (June 29th) the vix spiked over 45% exactly as we has predicted, so we thought we would revisit this analysis and update our valued followers. Recently, as many of you already know, the US and global markets have rotated on a number of news items and concerns. First, the IMF

Another Round of Ransomware Cyberattacks Hits Major Companies Across the Globe: Assessing the Blame
Another version of the “WannaCry” ransomware virus has gone viral, this one dubbed “Petya” by some and “GoldenEye” by others. Alternatively, some security experts say it is an entirely new virus. Pharmaceutical company Merck, Danish shipper Maersk, advertising group WPP Group, Ukrainian banks, and Russian oil company Rosneft all report significant intrusions on their computer systems.

Massive Government Preparations and Stockpiling Point To One Thing: “An Event Is Going To Happen”
The question is subtly Malthusian in nature: how to deal with the world’s teeming billions in one fell swoop while maintaining the existing social and political orders in all of the countries?  That order needs only to have one facade now: as Draconian an order that can be accomplished without throwing the world into a revolution against every government in existence.  The Draconian nature is as follows: CCTV cameras monitoring and cross-referencing every purchase, every bank withdrawal or depos

Brexit, Germany and Asia 
Britain’s general election went horribly wrong, with the Conservatives forced into a putative coalition with the Democratic Ulster Party. Theresa May’s failure to secure a clear majority has provoked indignation, bitterness, and widespread pessimism.The purpose of this article is not to contribute to this outcry, but to take a more measured view of the situation faced by the British government with regards to Brexit, and the consequences for Europe. In the interests of an international readershi

Putin Warns Of “Hot War” And Nuclear Holocaust: “I Don’t Think Anyone Would Survive”
With tensions among the world’s super powers mounting in places like Ukraine, Syria, North Korea and  most recently Qatar and Iran, it may only be a matter of time before someone pushes the red button. When they do, all bets are off, and as we’ve learned from the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand in June of 1914, once the trigger is pulled there’s no going back and hundreds of millions of lives, perhaps billions, will hang in the balance. Considering that Russia is closely allied with Syrian P

The World Is Short-Fused On Multiple Flash-Points: “These Activities Cannot Be Discounted As Any Kind Of Routine”
It has been reported that the USS Nimitz will join the USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Carl Vinson for a total of three U.S. carriers and their groups deployed to respond to or initiate actions against North Korea.  There is a small excerpt from an article entitled 3rd US Naval Strike Force Deployed to Deter North Koreathat bears mention: The U.S. military, meanwhile, will test a system to shoot down an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) for the first time next week.  It is intended to simu

Russian Lawmaker Issues Sobering Threat: We’re Willing To Use Nukes To Defend Crimea
As of late, the media has forgotten about tensions between Ukraine, NATO, and Russia. Crimea and the conflict in Eastern Ukraine have largely left the public’s awareness. However, that shouldn’t be the case, because this region is still a powder keg that could blow at any time. And if it does, it could easily result in another world war. If you don’t think the situation in Ukraine could still explode into a wider conflict, take a look at what this member of Russia’s parliament recently said at a

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

Who is the Greater Global Threat: ISIS, Putin, Trump, Senator McCain?
As Senator John McCain, goes further and further down his rabbit hole, he looks more and more hypocritical with every step he takes. Here is a case in point: McCain proposed Putin a Geater Threat than ISIS. The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, is the biggest threat to global security, even greater than Isis, John McCain has declared on his tour of Australia. In an interview on ABC’s 7:30 on Monday the Republican senator said President Donald Trump made him “nervous” and expressed concern at

The Truth is Becoming Un-American? – Paul Craig Roberts
Those of us who have exited The Matrix are concerned that there are no checks on Washington’s use of nuclear weapons in the interest of US hegemony over the world. Washington and Israel are the threats to peace. Washington demands world hegemony, and Israel demands hegemony in the Middle East. There are two countries that stand in the way of Washington’s world hegemony—Russia and China. Consequently, Washington has plans for preemptive nuclear strikes against both countries. It is difficult to i

These Powder Kegs Are About To Blow: “Trump Needs To Halt The Downward Spiral That Obama Orchestrated”
President Trump just took a trip to Saudi Arabia in an effort to obsequiously “shore up” the ties.  Expected.  It is expected for any U.S. president to “recertify” the Petrodollar and the commitments to protect the House of Saud that were initiated by Kissinger and Nixon almost five decades ago.  Times change, and administrations change; however, the systems in place are very slow and resistant to modification.  The BRIC nations are shoring up their interests as the U.S. continues to send more n
