Richard Mills - Ahead of the Herd
Only Political Dividing Line Left - Roots Based Politics Because of the rise of Globalism in the late 20th century the U.S. and Western Europe have recently seen stirrings of nationalist awakenings. Terrorism, turmoil in the Middle East and waves of Muslim refugees have fueled the trend. Wikipedia says this about Nationalism; “a nation should govern itself, free from unwanted outside interference, and is linked to the concept of self-determination. Nationalism is further oriented towards developing and maintaining a national iden

Blowing Off The Roof
Of all the absurd Washington pantomimes none has been as reliably entertaining and maddening as the annual debates to raise the debt ceiling. Although the outcome was always a foregone conclusion (the ceiling would be raised), the excitement came when fiscal conservatives bemoaned the perils of runaway debt and “attempted” to exact spending restrictions through threats “to shut down the government,” (which often led to news coverage of tourists being turned away from national parks.) On the othe

A Massive Surge In GLD "Inventory" - Craig Hemke
Yesterday saw the 2nd-largest one day surge in GLD "inventory" in the past five years. What does this signal, if anything at all? I think most everyone here knows how I feel about the GLD. It's a scam. It's a sham and it's a fraud. Oh sure, there's almost certainly some gold held in the HSBC vaults but how much is truly, 100% allocated to just the GLD? Recall the whole charade from back in 2011 when Bob Pissonme of CNBS was allegedly driven in circles for hours before being allowed into t

D.C. Dysfunction and Central Bank Chaos 
On September 5th, the members of both houses of Congress of the United States will clean the beach sand from between their toes and return to work. Our public servants who occupy The House of Representatives have been working on their respective tans since July 29th. The Senate has had a little less time in the sun; they held their final vote on August 3rd despite their pledge to stay until August 11th. Hopefully, they got a lot of rest, because they have a lot to do upon their return. By the en

Gold and Bitcoin Hype Hits Stratosphere (Part 1)
The hype and nonsense Bitcoin and gold has blasted through the troposphere into the stratosphere. I suppose hype could get higher. The next target is the mesosphere.

German Election September 24: What are the Coalition Possibilities?
Angela Merkel would like her CDU/CSU to have an outright majority. That does not look possible according to the latest German Election Opinion Polls.

Art Of The Deal Coauthor Says Trump Will Resign By End Of The Year: “Presidency Is Effectively Over… The Circle Is Closing At Blinding Speed”
Tony Schwartz, the man who co-authored Art of the Deal with Donald Trump in 1987, now says that the President will likely resign before the end of the year. In a series of Tweets earlier this week Schwartz showed his disdain for the President and echoed the sentiments of top Democrats who have claimed that Trump will either be impeached or voluntarily step away from the Presidency: I said some time ago I wasn’t going to tweet about Trump anymore. He hadn’t yet raised the stakes to the point of

This week, a few FOMC members delivered speeches. What do they imply for the gold market? On Monday, James Bullard, St. Louis Fed President, said that the low inflation may not be temporary, so the Fed can leave interest rates unchanged: “The current level of the policy rate is likely to remain appropriate over the near term," Bullard said in slides prepared ahead of a speech to the America’s Cotton Marketing Cooperatives 2017 Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.” Bullard’s insights are interesti

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

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.

  What Would Really Happen If California Seceded? 
There are two kinds of people who support the Calexit movement. People living in California who think that their state would be far better off without being hitched to the rest of the union, and people living in every other state who can’t wait to get rid of California. I’d wager that latter of those two know something that most Calexit supporters in California do not. They know that the golden state is a toxic influence on the rest of the country. It’s become a breeding ground for leftists ideo

Socialist Dictator Of Venezula Lashes Out At Election Fraud Claims
The “democratic socialist” and president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro has lashed out at claims of electoral fraud by the company that administers Venezuela’s voting system.  Maduro is accusing the company of succumbing to pressure from “the Gringos and the Brits” to sabotage his controversial and dictatorial new assembly. “That stupid guy, the president of Smartmatic, pressured to the neck by the gringos and the Brits, said there were 7.5 million [voters],” Mr. Maduro said. “I think there were 1

Watch: Venezuelan Police Engulfed In Flames After IED Explodes in Caracas
Venezuela was once again rocked with violence last weekend, after the Maduro regime won an election that essentially gave the ruling party unlimited power. The election established a parallel legislative body that was staffed entirely by Maduro supporters, thus allowing the socialist government to rewrite the constitution with little opposition. Venezuela has officially abandoned the remaining vestiges of democracy that had endured since Hugo Chavez came to power in 1999. However, the election w
