Nomi Prins: Financial Crash Possible in Last Quarter of 2017

  • Nomi Prins: Financial Crash Possible in Last Quarter of 2017
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Best-selling author Nomi Prins says two of the big wild cards are Donald Trump and Europe. Prins explains, “The biggest wild card is a combination. Trump is a wild card, but so is Europe. Right now, the political lens goes over to Europe. It’s caught between its old and potentially new structure and potential new political leadership. I think that is a major wild card now. That snakes through Russia, and that snakes through Eurasia relationships, and that relates back to Trump. The wild card is the linkages among those things.”


    Prins, who is a former top Wall Street banker, also thinks it’s hard to define the bad guys and the good guys. Prins contends, “From an economic standpoint, everyone has side deals. So, there is no positive or negative economy. . . . All countries do good things, and all countries do bad things. What is happening right now is all of the alignments between countries have been changing. . . . The reality is there are going to be a lot of things renegotiated, and it’s not just Trump and the U.S. doing the renegotiating. All the other countries are negotiating as well. If there is enough antagonism with how Trump is going to renegotiate those agreements . . . that could limit trade into the U.S., and that could limit our bargaining power. . . . That is all in flux this year.”

    Prins correctly predicted no financial crash for 2016. Prins’ upcoming book is titled “Artisans of Money.” It is all about central bank money creation. What does Prins say about this year? Prins predicts, “In 2016, I pegged the non-crash. . . . Central bankers were finding new ways to extend their money creation policies. That is what kept the markets up. There was a separate bid on the markets after Trump was elected. It was on the expectation that he would be good for growth, that he would be good for infrastructure and that he would create jobs. I do think there is a little juice in the central banks. I keep thinking there shouldn’t be, but they keep surprising all of us with their ability to boost the markets. They have artificially stimulated so many different asset bubbles, whether it’s debt, which is epic, or stock markets, many of which are at historic highs. If we have a crash, it will be in the second half of 2017. The promises, the rate hikes, the dollar being high could collapse into the realities of the stability and this artificialness. I am not sure about a crash this year, but if we see a big decline, it will be in the last quarter.”

    On the U.S. dollar, Prins says, “I think with the expectation of things going well, the dollar will be keeping a bit of a bid. It will be within a range but staying fairly up. I think the dollar will turn around and weaken in the second half of the year. . . .That’s why, in the last half of the year, gold will catch more of a bid.” (Meaning prices for gold will rise according to Prins.)

German Journalist Who Blew Whistle on CIA Media Control Drops Dead at 56

  • German Journalist Who Blew Whistle on CIA Media Control Drops Dead at 56
    by Paul Kaiser, http://russia-insider.com/en
    Nothing to see here….natural causes….move along
    Udo Ulfkotte, a German journalist and former editor of Germany’s prestigous newpaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung who spoke out in recent years about the control of his profession by the CIA and US government, has died of a heart attack. He was 56.

    Russia Insider
    conducted an exclusive interview with Ulfkotte in October 2014. Here is an excerpt:


    We’re talking about puppets on a string, journalists who write or say whatever their masters tell them to say or write. If you see how the mainstream media is reporting about the Ukraine conflict and if you know what’s really going on, you get the picture. The masters in the background are pushing for war with Russia and western journalists are putting on their helmets.    

    I’m ashamed I was part of it. Unfortunately I cannot reverse this. Although my superiors at the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung approved of what I did, I’m still to blame. But yes, to my knowledge I am the first to accuse myself and to prove many others are to blame.

    In November 2014 he said the following in an interview with Oriental Review:

    I didn’t get money – I got gifts. Things like gold watches, diving equipment, and trips with accommodations in five-star hotels. I know many German journalists who at some point were able to take advantage of this to buy themselves a vacation home abroad. But much more important than the money and gifts is the fact that you’re offered support if you write pieces that are pro-American or pro-NATO. If you don’t do it, your career won’t go anywhere – you’ll find yourself assigned to sit in the office and sort through letters to the editor.

    When you fly to the US again and again and never have to pay for anything there, and you’re invited to interview American politicians, you’re moving closer and closer to the circles of power. And you want to remain within this circle of the elite, so you write to please them. Everyone wants to be a celebrity journalist who gets exclusive access to famous politiciansBut one wrong sentence and your career as a celebrity journalist is over. Everyone knows it. And everyone’s in on it.

    Also the same year, Ulfkotte spoke to RT about his career and the corruption of German media… In July of 2016 he appeared on RT again to discuss Facebook’s censoship of him for writing a book criticizing Merkel’s open door migrant policy.

Washington Sends 1000s of Troops to Poland

  • Published on Jan 17, 2017
    Hundreds of US troops have landed in Norway for a six-month deployment, despite warning from Russia. Almost 3-hundred US marines will participate in drills with the Norwegian army, less than 15-hundred kilometers from the Russian border. It’s the first time since World War Two that foreign troops have been allowed to be stationed in the Scandinavian country. Officials have denied any link between the troop deployment and NATO’s concerns over Russia. But it coincides with the U-S sending several thousand troops to Poland to beef up its Eastern European allies. Earlier, a senior Russian official said the deployment is part of a U-S military build-up and that it makes Norway fair game in the event of a nuclear confrontation. The US-led western military alliance has ramped up its presence in Eastern Europe following the Ukraine crisis. Moscow says Washington seeks to constrain Russia.

US Marines Deployed to Russian Border Area in Norway

  • US Marines Deployed to Russian Border Area in Norway
    by Jason Ditz, January 16, 2017, http://antiwar.com/
    Russia Says Move Violates Norwegian Pledges Not to Host Foreign Troops
    Tensions are already on the rise between the US and Russia over massive US deployments in Germany for a training exercise marching east toward Russia. A force of US Marines are now heading to Trondheim, Norway for another deployment along the Russian border.

    Russia is none too happy, again, both annoyed at the US for deployment yet more troops along their border, and at Norway, who promised not to host any foreign troops on the Russian border when they became part of NATO. Norway insists this is just a temporary deployment and doesn’t count.

    How temporary? Officials say the US Marines will be in the area for at least a year, focusing on “cold weather” exercises which appear to center on “learning how to cope with skis.” They added the skis will have “nothing to do with Russia or the current situation.”

    Russia will doubtless note that there are plenty of places to ski that aren’t a stone’s throw from the NATO/Russia border, and this will just be the latest in a long list of small irritants adding to the tension between the US and Russia.

An Inauguration Day Surprise?

WW3 is near?

WW3 is near?

  • An Inauguration Day Surprise? 
    by , January 16, 2017, http://antiwar.com/
    Obama laying down landmines for Trump administration. Is the Obama administration out to provoke a military conflict with Russia in the days before Donald J. Trump takes the oath of office?

    In July of 2014, the US announced the start of “Operation Atlantic Resolve” in response to the vote by Crimea – which took place nearly three years ago — to rejoin the Russian Federation. Now the Obama administration has announced that 6,000 more US troops will be deployed, initially in Germany and Poland, and eventually fanning out to Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Romania, and Slovakia. Accompanying them will be 144 Bradley fighting vehicles, 87 M1A1 tanks, heavy artillery, and aircraft.

    Europe hasn’t seen such an increase in the US troop presence since the fall of the Soviet Union. Coming as it does with mere days left in Obama’s term of office, this action invites all sorts of speculation: however, one need not speculate as to whether this is a political move. Clearly it is: the idea is to box in President-elect Trump, who has expressed his desire to improve relations with Russia.

    The mere expression of such a view has provoked a storm of abuse from the War Party, and a relentless campaign of calumny orchestrated by the CIA to the effect that Trump is “Putin’s puppet.” The deranged Democrats, looking for some way to excuse why their weak and widely disliked candidate lost the election, have explained it all away by claiming that a Russian conspiracy “stole” the White House from Hillary Clinton by revealing truthful and embarrassing information via Wikileaks. It doesn’t matter that there’s no evidence for this contention: in alliance with anonymous “US officials,” spooks, and “journalists” who believe everything the CIA tells them, this has become the elite consensus.

    This sets the stage for what may be Trump’s first foreign policy crisis. If President Trump, upon taking office, withdraws the troops, the anti-Russia hysterics will scream bloody murder. If he doesn’t, the risk of an “incident” occurring on the border with Russia increases – as does the risk of an all-out conflict with a nuclear-armed adversary.

    This underscores the recklessness of the Obama administration and the NeverTrumpers: they are willing to risk World War III in order to sabotage Trump’s peace agenda. Despicable is too mild a term to describe their actions.

Pilger: Trump Faces American ‘War-Making Machine’ If He Tries to Strike Deal with Russia — “The US’ Biggest Business is War”!

  • Trump Faces American ‘War-Making Machine’ If He Tries to Strike Deal with Russia – Pilger
    by https://www.rt.com/
    President-elect Donald Trump may want to make a deal with Russia, award-winning journalist John Pilger told RT, adding that the “US intelligence and national security monolith is pointed towards war.”

    “It seems that he [Donald Trump] wants to make a deal with Russia, it makes sense from everyone’s point of view,” Pilger told RT’s Rory Suchet during a lengthy interview. “There is a great pressure on him not to do it”.

    The US president now has “enormous military power,” noted Pilger. Trump is currently under pressure from fellow Republicans calling for tougher sanctions against Russia and those standing for softening rhetoric towards Moscow.

    “The US’ biggest business is war. Lockheed Martin and all other major armament companies have a great halt on the US administration, on the US Congress. The so-called intelligence community and national security monolith is pointed towards war.”

    The ultimate ambition of ‘Washington Hawks’ is regime change in Russia – “to dismember the Russian Federation,” according to the veteran journalist. He reminded about interventions US conducted since the end of the WWII against numerous nations.

    “If Trump is going to drawback from that, that’s very good news. The US usually only attack defenseless countries. They rarely attack countries that can stand up for themselves.”

    That’s why “this reckless provocation” on the western borders with Russia and in the Asia Pacific against China is “slightly unusual,” as it’s taking things up to “another level of risks and provocation,” he added.

    Pilger was referring to the NATO deployment in Eastern Europe. Earlier in January, some 2,800 pieces of military hardware and 4,000 troops arrived at the German port of Bremerhaven to be transferred to various NATO bases.

Russian Foreign Ministry: “Obama Still Has A Few Days Left To Destroy The World”

obama_ready_to_start_ww3_to_neutralize_trump

  • Russian Foreign Ministry: “Obama Still Has A Few Days Left To Destroy The World” 
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    There is a reason Vladimir Putin and the Russian top political echelon has been avoiding the media following the onslaught of allegations lobbed at the Kremlin, and Trump: as AP writes, careful not to hurt chances for a thaw in U.S.-Russia relations, President Putin and other Russian officials “have deferred questions about their plans for future contacts with Trump and any agenda for those talks until he takes office on Friday.” In short, the “Kremlin is counting the days to his inauguration and venting its anger at Barack Obama’s outgoing administration, no holds barred.

    Trump’s desire to restore relations with Russia has brought wide expectations of improved Moscow-Washington relations, but Trump has not articulated a clear Russia policy. His Cabinet nominees include both a retired general with a hawkish stance on Russia and an oil executive who has done extensive business in Russia. At the same time, Russian officials are blasting the outgoing U.S. administration in distinctly undiplomatic language, dropping all decorum after Obama hit Moscow with more sanctions in his final weeks in office.

Western Amnesia on WWII as NATO Replicates Nazi Germany

Operation_Barbarossa_1941-German_invasion_of_Soviet_Union

  • Western Amnesia on WWII as NATO Replicates Nazi Germany
    by https://www.rt.com/
    NATO’s biggest buildup in Europe since the Cold War was met with official cheers in Poland and approving Western media coverage this week, but lack of concern in Western public discourse suggests a collective amnesia towards the continent’s horrific past.

    Up to 4,000 US troops and hundreds of Abrams tanks and Bradley armored vehicles rolled into Poland after disembarking in Germany last week. Most of the soldiers were from the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team out of Fort Carson, Colorado. They represent the US army’s best assault units.

    It is but the latest military escalation since the US launched Operation Atlantic Resolve with NATO partners in April 2014. That operation is said to be a result of the Ukraine conflict, which Washington and allies blame on Russian interference.

    US commander Colonel Christopher Norrie this week said: “The main goal of our mission is deterrence and prevention of threats.”

    This view was echoed by Poland’s defense minister, Antoni Macierewicz, who claimed the military reinforcements would check alleged Russian interference in Europe. “Russia’s veto power in Central Europe, in Poland, has ended once and for all,” said Macierewics, who has been an ardent advocate of NATO expansion in the region.

    After nine months of exercises in Poland, the US troops will be rotated to the Baltic States of Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia, as well as to Bulgaria and Romania.

    The claims of “deterrence” and “defense” for the US-led military escalation on Russia’s borders, articulated by Washington officials and European governments, are amplified without question by Western news media.

    Polish and Baltic politicians seem to thrive on paranoia toward Russia, fearing a revanchist Soviet-style invasion in spite of repeated declarations by Moscow that it has no aggressive designs on its Western neighbors.

  • Preparations to restart Ukraine war and ignite WW3.
  • “Thunderbirds” 45th Infantry BCT Arrived in Ukraine
    by 1st Lt. Kayla Christopher45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team
    Approximately 250 soldiers from the Oklahoma Army National Guard’s 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team arrived in Ukraine this week to begin their deployment in support of Joint Multinational Training Group-Ukraine.


    The JMTG-U mission, which falls under 7th Army Training Command and U.S. Army Europe, will pair Thunderbirds from 1st Battalion, 179th Infantry Regiment with Ukrainian Soldiers from 1st Battalion, 28th Mechanized Brigade and 1st Battalion, 79th Airborne Brigade.

    During their time in Ukraine, the 1-179th soldiers will mentor and train the two Ukrainian battalions. The 45th IBCT will also focus on taking the next steps towards advancing the goals of the Ukrainian’s combat training center which is being established at the International Peacekeeping and Security Center near Yavoriv, Ukraine.

    Lt. Col. Colby Wyatt, commander of the 1st Bat., 179th Inf. Regt., said his Thunderbirds are uniquely qualified for the mission. “In my time with this battalion, we’ve been evaluated twice at the Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana,” Wyatt said. “We’ve also done a third rotation in the box augmenting the opposing force, which should put us in a good position to help the Ukrainians develop their OPFOR.”

    Wyatt also has experience serving as an observer controller trainer at JRTC. “The Ukrainians have a capable army,” said Wyatt, adding that his Soldiers aren’t at JMTG-U to tell the Ukrainian army what to do, but rather they are there to add another tool to their partner’s tool belt.

    “Ultimately, they should modify the training to work for them,” Wyatt said. “We want to enable the Ukrainians to train themselves, we want to work ourselves out of a job.”

    The 1-179th soldiers will spend the next few weeks preparing themselves to execute the first training rotation with Ukraine’s 1st Battalion, 28th Mechanized Brigade. Wyatt’s soldiers will serve in Ukraine for the next six months.

Charles Nenner 2017 Prediction: Global War Cycle Coming into Danger Zone

  • Charles Nenner 2017 Prediction: Global War Cycle Coming into Danger Zone
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Renowned financial and geopolitical analyst Charles Nenner correctly predicted there would be no market crash in 2016. 2017 is going to be a very different story.  Nenner explains, “There are going to be some serious corrections and some bounces.  I don’t thing we are going anywhere until the fall of 2017 when the whole bottom is going to fall out.  If you are a very good stock picker, you’ll be okay, but I am talking about the indices (overall financial markets).  It continues to be dangerous, and most of the good news is already in this rally.  The hope that Trump will do the right thing is still there, but it will take too long.  People will realize it is not going to happen tomorrow, and they will get disappointed.  So, I am still not very much into the stock market.  I don’t think there is much to gain over there.  I have been saying that for the next couple of years, try not to lose your money.  That’s the major thing you should be doing.”


    On the election of Donald Trump, Nenner says, “More than half of Americans supported Trump, but everybody is afraid to say so. I always thought Trump would change the whole thing.   I think things will also change in the Middle East.  I do think he much better understands Putin than Obama and the Democrats.  I think he will be tough, and his toughness may lead to a better situation with world peace, although the cycles are against him.  I actually feel sorry for him because if this market crashes, then maybe he can say, like Obama, it was Bush who did it.  He might be able to say it’s only been one year as President, and it’s Obama’s fault.  Maybe that’s how he can get out of it.  I think it was Obama that said for eight years it was Bush’s fault.”

    On his big prediction of a coming war cycle, Nenner says, “I have always said I feel sorry for whoever is going to President now because we have negative cycles, and things usually don’t work out very well. I think the United States will be much better off with a different wind blowing in Congress and in the White House.”

    The most disturbing thing Nenner sees coming is a major world war on the scale of WWI and WWII. Nenner explains, “In my research of financial markets, we also did research on war cycles.  It’s about to flare up everywhere.  If the stock market is close to a top, some stocks are just tanking and others still hold up.  What you see here right now is some countries are just tanking, and the rest are still holding up, meaning we are forming a top.  This means the cycle is coming into the danger zone.  I still see a big problem with China and Japan.  We also have problems with Chinese islands (in the South China Sea).  If this continues, it’s going to come from there.  If you go back a hundred years ago, a big war started (WWI).  A hundred years before that it was Napoleon.  Big wars always start in the second decade of a new era. . . . I still see there are problems with war everywhere . . . . Everything is on the edge, and it can ignite at any minute.  If terrorists could, they would use much larger weapons, and if they do, everybody is going to have to wake up.  Then you will have a major war on your hands.”

    In closing, Nenner says, “I think it is a good idea to own some physical gold and silver.”

Ushering In a Totalitarian Police State in Cashless “Smart Cities”

world_war_on_cash

  • Ushering In a Totalitarian Police State in Cashless “Smart Cities”
    by From Scandinavia to Amsterdam to India and elsewhere, the trend of going “cashless” is gaining traction.

    We have been covering the shortcomings of what is rightly called the War On Cash here at TDV for a while now and have shown just how negative the effects can be on an unsuspecting nation’s people.

    Chandigarh, India, which is the capital of the northern Indian states of Punjab and Haryana, is like one of India’s labrats. Indian officials are working hard toward making it into India’s first cashless city. This initiative is part of the Prime Minister of India’s call for state governments to begin developing what he’s calling “smart” cities. That means cities attached to the latest internet technology. However there is nothing intelligent about his plan.

    One of the major changes being made to work toward that objective was the insistence of having all bills paid electronically at government offices within the city.

    Similarly, in Panjim, the capital of Goa, India, the local government is attempting to incentivize the locals into paying digitally by offering them discounts on train tickets and other public transportation services if they pay electronically.

    This is an extension of the ongoing cash battle which has been going on in India since November when Modi announced he was going to replace the 500 and 1000 rupee banknotes. However the government has not started replacements, only ensured the removal.

    What followed the eradication of India’s largest denomination notes was a constricted Indian economy, particularly among the middle and lower classes who rely predominantly on cash transactions to conduct daily business.
