 Forecast 2017: The Wheels Finally Come Off  (7)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Great article. Although banking & fiscal comments are US orientated, they apply equally to the British & EU governmental manipulators & are the thoughts of many in England - hence Brexit. Comments on Europe, Turkey, Middle East, & Russia are spot on.

 Why Are Dollar Bills Worth Anything?
 - Frank Shostak - 
“Dollars,” which are not dollars as the term is used in the Constitution, are accepted for two reasons: 1. One can use them to pay federal taxes. In other words, they are de facto circulating tax anticipation coupons. While it is true that one can also use a U.S. Gold Eagle, some of which have a stated dollar value of $50, to pay taxes, that would be ridiculous. 2. Legal tender laws provide that the paper dollars are acceptable for all debts public and private. Thus, in a legal proceeding, the award, unless the controversy provides for specific performance, e.g., with a gold clause, will be in the legal tender. Thus, it is not necessary that the dollar, or the euro or any of the other make-believe money incarnations, have a historical precedent. Larry Parks

 Bundesbank Hauls its Gold back from New York Paris Faster than Planned
 - Wolf Richter - 
It should start to become obvious to the global peasant class that Gold and Silver is being funneled away from individuals and entire countries in preparation for the "Mother of All Crashes." A BANKING HOLIDAY is beyond the "Planning Stages" and whispered Key Word will bring down the global house of cards. All the individuals fortunate enough to prepare ahead of the planned collapse will steal everything the peasants can not afford to hold. The rigged markets, precious metals and manipulated commodities are ripe for the triggered event.

 Wholesale Gold Bars +4.6% in 2017, Repeat Last 3 Januarys Even as GLD Shrinks
 - Bullion Vault - 
"the GLD shrank by 68 tonnes in December according to data compiled and released Tuesday by market-development organization the World Gold Council." I always see Bullion Vault list this data but I've yet to see any substantial evidence backing this data up. How reliable are GLD's holding reports? GLD does not give retail investors the right to redeem for any of its mystery physical gold holdings. This fact alone ensures the GLD shares to be nothing more than paper at the end of the day. GLD also has a glaring audit loophole in their prospectus that states they have no right to audit subcustodial gold holdings. To this day, I have not heard of a single good reason for the existence of this backdoor to the fund. Some other red flags I've stumbled upon, verified and welcome everyone else to verify for themselves: "Did anyone try calling the GLD hotline at 866▪320▪4053 in search of numerical details on GLD's insurance? The prospectus vaguely states "The Custodian maintains insurance with regard to its business on such terms and conditions as it considers appropriate which does not cover the full amount of gold held in custody." When I asked about how much of the gold was insured, the representative proceeded to act as if he didn't know and said they were just the "marketing agent" for GLD. What kind of marketing agent would not know such basic information about a product they are marketing? It seems like they are deliberately hiding information from investors." "I remember there was a highly publicized visit by CNBC's Bob Pisani to GLD's gold vault. This visit was organized by GLD's management to prove the existence of GLD's gold but the gold bar held up by Mr. Pisani had the serial number ZJ6752 which did not appear on the most recent bar list at that time. It was later discovered that this "GLD" bar was actually owned by ETF Securities."

 Trump's Ignorance  (5)
 - Hugo Salinas Price - Plata.com
Bretton Woods occurred 73 years ago, back when gold-based currency and free-market economies were viable and implementable. Fast forward to 2017. Gold-based dollars are no longer in play. There is no free market, and there has been no free market for at least several decades. At best we have crony capitalism, and capital allocations based on political whim and "best intentions". The stifling array of government regulations, and endless "quantitative easing" with prime rates strapped close to 0% ensures no free market can exist. So arguments about how we need to adhere to the spirit of the Bretton Woods agreement are null and void. "It is quite unjust to blame the rest of the world for having caused the deindustrialization of the US, and to point an accusing finger at Mexico .... ". I have heard no one, especially Mr. Trump, blaming the rest of the world for the "deindustrialization" of the USA ..... despite his assurance that American-based companies will pay a steep price for exporting American jobs to foreign locations. American citizens have been deeply discounted and disrespected by the banking/media elites and NWO for a long time. This became very pronounced during the last 8 years of the outgoing administration. Mr. Trump won large last November exactly because of this. We will impose tariffs and we will build a wall. If other countries don't like this approach, then perhaps they need to find another sandbox to play in. Godspeed Mr. Trump.

There sure is a LOT of motivation to move to Germany. On the down side: I can't afford to migrate to Germany, can't afford to get the German Green Card, and can't afford food if I ever made it to Germany. On the up side: I'd qualify for the Fringe Benefits !

 Mad As Hell  (3)
 - Chris Martenson - 
Dear Chris...I agree with most of what you say here. The problem here, and with most writers/analysts in this arena, however, is that you/they simply refuse to speak in anything but (mostly) courteous terms, believing that in this way, courteous "sheeple" will listen/read, understand, agree, and resist, or at least complain a little, those, that is, that aren't fully on the govt dole already and like the status quo. The fact is that "our" govt, as it now subsists, is a group made up almost entirely of "elected" (that's another topic that needs deconstructing) and unelected sociopaths, career politicians, that have worked their way into positions of power for their own benefit. Most don't give a sh*t about WeTheSheeple and will spout off any and every lie necessary at any moment to keep their positions of power. What's left of their collective conscience is easily assuaged by money and promises of more money, in the form of campaign contributions while in office and an 8/9/10 figure bank account and/or lucrative gig of some form or another when they get out. They don't represent us at all...they simply rubber stamp their employers, who haven't been WeTheSheeple for a long time now. They are self-centered, egotistical ("I deserve the good life b/c I worked hard and lied brilliantly to get here into this position of power"), greedy liars. Period. And of course Obama (as well as those that put this manchurian candidate in office) is an anti-American, and very likely a non-American, obamanation (not that BushJr was any better), as is and always was the ("vote it in if you want to read it') Obamanation Care Act. All of which is to say, Chris...YOU'RE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO MAD ENOUGH YET!!!!! "Obama's main failing"...WHAT!!! No failing whatsoever...it was PLANNED!! Don't you get it? And it wasn't Obama...it was the Deep State oligarchical scum behind him that devised it as another atomic bomb on the financial health of the working class. It has been HIGHLY successful. Sheeeeesh!!

 Can Marine Le Pen Pull Off French Election Stunner? Germany a Loser No Matter Who Wins?
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Agree. I like Le Pen, in spite some of her socialist leanings. iMO, she's simply being a realist. After all, the world has gone socialist in toto, and it will take something extraordinary to move it back toward anything less centralized (iMO, that something will need to be a total or near-total financial collapse that actually has the blame planted for it squarely and very publicly on those it belongs--the central banksters and their unholy alliance with governments that allows them to counterfeit money, lend it to govts at interest--bonds/treasuries, and get paid massive amts of money for it, paid for by WeTheSheeple who get stuck with ever-increasingly worthless fiat). Even Trump promotes socialist "solutions" in many of his promises and apparent policies-to-be, ie, much is still centered around the Fedl Govt and what it will do...not much de-centralization to be found...not what the private sector could and would do with the massive amount of proposed expenditures, as you point out. And I like the fact that LePen is constantly marginalized and almost unanimously and matter-of-factly brushed off as a totally unlikely winner of the second round. Sounds familiar to me, and I don't doubt the French will come out en masse to a greater extent than the MSM (all one and the same in the West) is willing to consider or put in print, including their (controlled) pollsters and polls.

 Trump Slams NATO, Blasts EU as “Vehicle for Germany”, Seeks Deal With Russia, Threatens BMW
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Concerning Trump's trade policy, other countries won't act similarly. The US is a different animal, it can purchase all cars that a US factory can produce. The US has the workforce to man such a factory, and others, like Toyota, are doing it quite successfully. Other countries do not have the purchasing power to make such demands. And BMW can still sell Mexican cars to the rest of the world, or just hold higher prices in the US, it certainly doesn't force their hand.

 The “war on cash” has nothing to do with fighting crime  (5)

Another argument against a cash ban being to deter criminals is that I believe more money is lost by fraudulent withdrawals from bank accounts than is stolen in the form of cash. So, to deter criminals let's ban bank accounts and use cash (and gold/silver) only!

 Will Globalization Survive Trump?
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
( enlever la traduction française avant de lire, sinon tout se traduit et pas correctement )Le libre échange profite beaucoup plus aux riches et supers riches, p. ce que même si les produits qui sont produits ailleurs sont moins chers, il faut que la population qui ne fait plus ces produits aient un travail rémunéré pour les acheter. Regardons ce qui se passe parmi les populations plus riches ( occidentaux ) qui ont fait du libre échange avec les pays plus pauvres ( ASIE et autres ). Qui a fait des gains, les populations plus pauvres ( peut-être?? ) et surtout les CA des grosses entreprises qui ont délocalisé les usines pour faire des gains sans se soucier des populations locales( en Occident ): ils feront de même avec les pays d'Asie lorsqu'ils auront de la main d'oeuvre meilleur marché pour eux; pas pour les consommateurs... Les riches s'enrichissent, les pauvres et la classe moyenne s'appauvrissent de plus en plus! Les PARADIS FISCAUX n'ont pas été créer pour les pauvres et la classe moyenne , mais pour des gens riches qui veulent bénéficier des largesses d'un pays sans payer son DÛ. De toute façon, pour être consommateur ils faut avoir de l'$$ et pour avoir de l'argent , il faut travailler ou avoir de l'assistance publique ( à ce niveau, la consommation est de base ): un poète a dit que la meilleur façon de tuer un homme est de le payer à ne rien faire. ( FL) Je regarde autour de moi et je vois de la tristesse et des gens qui ont de la misère à joindre les 2 bouts; c'est rendu gênant d'avoir beaucoup de moyens par rapport aux autres , même si je fais tout ce que je peux pour partager...

" the production of security" a democratic republic has plenty of di-versification......."the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." in jeffersons time we spelled out what a dollar of money is. one ounce of silver. at the current price of silver if you make one thousand dollars a week what would you rather be paid in? one thousand pieces of paper or one thousand dollars worth of "junk silver"? and yes i mean the face value of all those coins. get real people. we dont need to tinker around very much at all.

 Trumpenstein ! Who Created Him and Why?
 - Phoenix Capital - Gains Pains & Capital
How I wish that the mainstream media were indeed exercising an honest painful self-examination. Instead, their defence mechanisms are to the fore as they desperately try to shift the blame for their failures onto alternative media sources. Their survival will likely only be assured by the ominous 'anti-propoganda' legislation just signed by Obama which will further erode freedom of expression. Only government and MSM propaganda will be permitted. Will Americans take this lying down or are they too inattentive?

 Bush Trumps Reagan
 - Peter Schiff - Euro Pacific Capital
Merry Christmas Peter. I read your article with rapt interest. You got me to thinking ~ when it came to me: since the Debt has been permitted to run up from $328 Billion to $20 TRILLION ~ there is no reason the Debt can't go to $40 TRILLION or $100 TRILLION. These numbers and charts and rationale you give (and I understand !) are meaningless in the Great Scheme of Things. The "game" will NOT be over until that First Person says "I will no longer take your paper for my hard-earned goods." That's the Day "it" Ends.

 Santa Claus Economics  (3)
 - Tom DiLorenzo - lewRockwell
The obvious question that occurs to me, from this article, is why doesn't the UN, US, UK and all the usual suspects, not 'intervene on humanitarian grounds' as they have done in many other countries? One concludes that there has already been massive intervention, already. Mr Chavez had decided, amongst other things, to sell the nationalised oil for gold, instead of dollars - he got mortally sick, not long after that, and the Venezuelan bond market mysteriously got sick, too. All the rest of the problems followed on from that.

True Ron, very true, But the yanks don't approve of not being invited to a party and unlike others they will see it as a loss of prestige, face, power in the ME . Call it what you will. There will be reprisals which is why Russia has wisely invited them back into the fold after Obama is gone. But that will not satisfy the neocons and others and like the spoilt fat kid in the playground he'll find some other method to ruin the game. Trump with the best intentions will be no match for the deep state.

 Bitcoin Moonshots to $1,150, Doubling in Past Six Months
 - Jason Hamlin - Gold Stock Bull
Ok, so you say: "In a fully decentralized monetary system, there is no central authority that regulates the monetary base. Instead, currency is created by the nodes of a peer-to-peer network. The Bitcoin generation algorithm defines, in advance, how currency will be created and at what rate. Any currency that is generated by a malicious user that does not follow the rules will be rejected by the network and thus is worthless." I still do not quite understand the Bitcoin story, specifically with regard to a limited supply. To me, this supply limit is created by the decision(s) of someone, or some several people, who wish to remain anonymous. Why are they anonymous? If I were the one who invented the Bitcoin algorithm, then I would also be able to change it, modify it as needed. Really, I do not understand how that algorithm cannot be subject to change. Surely the smart people who created the Bitcoin algorithm have more control and influence over it than 10 year old boys have over the flight path of a bottle rocket. If I am mistaken in this, then please try to esplain the supply limit Bitcoin a bit more. In the field of math, there is no limit to the number of integers you can line up. To me, it seems logically possible that a small variation of the bitcoin algorithm could potentially increase the number of potential bitcoins by a factor of 10, 100, 1000, take your pick. On the other side there is demand. The great success of ransom-ware must have something to do with it, because people are desperate to get their data back. So it seems that if the ransom-ware crooks are (hopefully) beaten at their game, the demand for bitcoin and its value would fall. Discuss? Could Bitcoin become too expensive if the price is driven too high by demand? Then there is the issue of the block-chain. It is supposed to be an uncorruptible ledger system. I work in accounting. From the start of a bank account, math and accounting rules hold that if I start a bank account in say 1903, and I carefully and truthfully register all additions and withdrawals from 1903 until January 6, 2017, then any accountant using the same rules should come up with the same end result. In theory, the ending balance of a bank statement at the end of June 30, 1997 must always equal the beginning balance of July 1, 1997. In practice I have actually observed bank statements that differed in exactly such an example. How was that possible? Human error. If the bitcoin algorithm is made by humans, then there could be human error in it. Has that been researched? What happens if the block-chain becomes unchained, interrupted? How are the preceding bitcoins and the bitcoins created after the interruption affected? How does that work? I could possibly come up with a competing currency, say the "IFcoin", the "WHENcoin" and, obviously, the "BUTcoin". Competing crypto-currencies ought to have an effect on the demand side and value of the prior de-facto monopoly of the bitcoin. Additional features, such as a replacement of currency through some insurance scheme, in case it gets lost, stolen, misapplied etc. might make one currency more desirable than others. Finally, how does a crypto currency like bitcoin "gain currency"? There are numerous problems with all kinds of fiat currencies, but we know what these are. With bitcoin, we don't even know yet what potential problems could develop. More questions than answers right now.
