“Thelma and Louise” Moments in Markets
This article was written for Miles Franklin by Gary Christenson. The movie “Thelma and Louise” was released in 1991. One theme it discussed was “crossing over” or going beyond the point of no return. The consequences were tragic. Markets occasionally experience “Thelma and Louise” (T&L) moments when they “cross over” into a new phase. The results are usually tragic. Now is a good time to call Miles Franklin to convert over-valued digital assets into real silver bullion. Thelma (Geena Davis):  “

Silver as a Strategic Metal and Why Prices Will Soar 
The arguments in favor of silver as an investment asset are growing rapidly. In the opinion of the Jackass, silver is the most under-valued hard asset in existence, with the highest potential for price appreciation on the globe. To begin with, central banks own no silver, but do own huge tracts of gold. Industry has huge demand for silver, but a trifling amount for gold demand. The investment demand is another key factor in favor of silver, but also for gold. Ever since the tech telecom bust in

Profit, Protection, Despite Cartel Interventions—November 2017 Update
Governments love [the war on cash]. Then they can control you...we are not going to have as many freedoms as we have now ...get prepared because we're going to have the worst economic problems we've had in your lifetime or my lifetime and when that happens a lot of people are going to disappear.“…the next time aro

Turning Point Nations On The Stage
Many are the turning points with individual nations, once firmly in the Western alliance camp, but no longer. They are flipping eastward or in the case of China cutting the major cords. The Shanghai developments are by far the most important in the financial setting. The Petro-Dollar is seeing its last months after a 43-year reign as defacto standard. Its retirement will begin in the East, then spread to the decaying loyal Western nations. The entire geopolitical chessboard is becoming more alig

  Chinese Leverage to Kill Petro-dollar
The Chinese Govt is greatly irritated by the requirement to use USDollars in payment for crude oil in the global market. The Beijing officials finally have some leverage in arranging for a major deal to pay for crude oil in RMB currency, their Yuan. The negotiations have been in progress for a couple months. The development is not covered well in the financial press, not even in the alternative media. It will happen, just a matter of time. Its effect will be far reaching and likely devastating.

Global Currency Reserve at Risk
Within the US borders, the population remains largely ignorant of the true significance of the global currency reserve concept. It is of paramount importance, yet almost never discussed in the financial press. The public within the United States simply assumes the country operates with the USDollar as its currency, with near blindness to its global role in trade and banking. The end of an era is coming, as the change will be powerful in its effect. The shock wave could hit this year in some form

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

Why you shouldn’t wear a nose ring
Did I pique your interest with such a goofy title? We’ll get to that shortly but first let’s take a look at the question raised last week, “what are the chances of gold being down 15 days in a row”. I received the answer from statistician Jim Willie. The answer, “in a vacuum” is once in every 32,800 trading days. This is something like once every 130 years but again, in a “vacuum”. This meaning strictly by chance such as a coin flip. But we do not live in a vacuum, no, we are now living during T

Gold Standard Challenges
Scattered recent analysis has centered upon the Gold Standard and its viability within the global financial system. The topic is certainly very blurred and at times confusing. Consider a recent article by a competent analyst Charles Hugh Smith of the site OfTwoMinds on the practicality of gold used as a standard. The article is entitled “The Problem With Gold-Backed Currencies” (which is found HERE and also on Lew Rockwell site HERE). He makes several points, many good ones. In the Jackass opini

Bless You Chuck Berry, You Are Missed Already!
Bless you Chuck Berry. The rock-and-roll pioneer is gone at age 90, but his early influence still lives on. Please consider Chuck Berry, Musician, 1926-2017 Chuck Berry, who has died aged 90, was to some the greatest rock ’n’ roll artist of all time: he was certainly among the most influential. All the big British bands of the 1960s, in particular The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Animals, looked to Berry for both inspiration and material. Their early hits such as “Roll over Beethoven”, “

A 'Hoof-in-Mouth' Market
As I muse delightfully this afternoon over my quote terminal, I am enthralled to take note of silver's uncanny ability on Tuesday to actually listen to my cares and concerns and mount a 2.5% rally against a paltry 1.6% for gold into what has been the first of many of what I alluded to on the weekend—

Cracks in the Bond Market
Foreign USTreasury Bond dumping continues, and even accelerates. China and the Saudis are selling USTreasurys in a near panic. Foreign central banks liquidated a record $375 billion in USGovt debt in the last 12 months. An American disaster lies in the making from debt saturation, debt overload, and debt dumping. It is all denied by the Washington mouthpieces and the Wall Street handlers, as they lie. The USGovt debt default is within view, dead ahead. One month ago in October tally, the USFed u

Criss-Crossed Fuses And Lit Bonfire
Many are the potential fuses to be lit, which would create the conflagration, the massive bonfire of the bond vanities and bank charades. Many are the fuses lying around, all criss-crossed, all exposed, all overlapping each other in highly dangerous manner. If any single fuse is lit, then several will light and the detonation arrives. It is unavoidable since the financial world is so deeply interwoven. Never in modern history has the global financial structure been so badly weakened, so totally

  Broken Central Banks: 4 Quick Pix
The Western central bank franchise system is totally broken, totally insolvent, and totally corrupt. It invites the Gold Standard return. The entire financial system is built upon a debt-based monetary system. The debt saturation process has run its full course. The central bank heads have been covering the sovereign debt for the last five years, having rendered their balance sheets as ruined. Debt is at obscene levels, like $19.7 trillion for the USGovt. No debt limits are in place anymore, a s

USTBill Rejection at Ports in Progress
World trade has fallen for the second quarter in a row. The decade of stagnation of industrial production in the United States, Japan, and European Union can be blamed on financial engineering, housing bubbles, war, and recently on destructive monetary policy in QE bond purchase program. It is not stimulus, but rather a destroyer of capital. The West contains several nations with heavy industrial emphasis, hardly advanced economies anymore. They risk a fall into the Third World from a generation

Video: Dr. Doom Marc Faber Forecasts 50 Crash in Stock Markets: “We Can Easily Give Back Five Years Of Capital Gains”
Well known economist Marc Faber, who predicted the crash of 2008 and its subsequent rally to new highs, says that stock markets are once again set for a massive collapse. Doctor Doom, as he’s affectionately known around the world for his contrarian views, echos the sentiment of forecaster Harry Dent, who recently said that stocks could drop as much as 70% and throw America into a new Great Depression. As Faber’s moniker implies, destruction and calamity are in our future. And though his forecast

Long Awaited Gold Breakout
For the last year or more, not an elephant, not a gorilla, but a dragon has been found at the dinner table. Its breath has just made everybody at the table totally bald with some scorched red faces. Now all are looking at each other, wondering who will first mention the bald guys at the table. The Shanghai levers are finally functioning, starting with the Gold Fix and continuing with the RMB-based gold futures contract (which delivers gold metal oddly). The game is finally on, as in the climax c

Trump’s Vice-President
Nothing is ever certain in politics. Life’s prompting events are too transitory and human nature is too capricious. But whenever a political candidate is closing in on his party’s presidential nomination, all of us invariably turn to speculating on who the candidate should choose for his Vice-President. In light of history, the office is hardly a position of immense significance. Vice-Presidents oversee the Senate, which means they sit at the front of the chamber and cast deciding votes in case
