Setup Complete, Watch Gold, Watch The Central Bank, Watch What Happens Next

  • X22Report Published on Mar 21, 2019
    May tries to get an extension form the EU, the EU wants a meaningful vote on the proposed plan first, the people do want the plan. May might be forced to resign.The Fed decided not to raise rates and keep them steady, this will now allow the pieces of the plan to come together, the manipulation is getting harder, Basel III is coming in to effect, gold prices will stay low and then slowly rise as we approach the end of the year and really start to move in 2020. The market will continually push higher and Trump will make the economy look fantastic statically.

Andrew Maguire: Central Banks Going Long Gold

  • Andrew Maguire: Central Banks Going Long Gold
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    World renowned precious metals expert Andrew Maguire says pay attention to the new rule that goes into effect at the end of March that will allow gold to become fully valued and monetized as a tier 1 asset for banks around the world. Maguire explains, “Basel III is coming into effect in less than two weeks from now, and it will effectively remonetize physical gold. Of course, that is a big deal. While the synthetic players shuffle chips in this siloed CME casino, the insider bullion banks are positioning for higher gold prices. That is it right there. Bottom line is what are the big boys doing?”


    So, is it safe to say central banks and big banks are going long gold? Maguire says, “They’re all going long gold. Why is that? It is because they are already allocating gold for their own house accounts. . . . The minute the global physical markets see unallocated positions are being mark to market at a certain price, the physical market will explode. There will be a gap higher, and the offer to sell physical will rise to a point where someone is actually willing to sell it. . . . I think you are going to see in a few days that it will suit the bullion banks to have a higher price than a lower price. . . . At some point, they are going to want a higher price, and we all know why. There are trillions of dollars of derivatives and unbacked zero value intrinsic assets out there in the market place, and someone has to settle this stuff. It is not going to be settled without a much higher gold price.”

    Maguire goes on to say, “Look at platinum, it’s a vertical rise. What is that? That is a physically driven short squeeze. People look at it and say it must be speculation. It’s not speculation. It was a massive short position just like in silver and just like in gold, but more so in silver. What we are seeing is a relentless drive to cover. We are going to see a similar situation (in gold and silver). What is that price? You are already seeing that with the LBMA projecting $1,530 per ounce in gold for this year. . . . It amazes me that people are not seeing this massive tectonic event. It’s going to be a shock, but I think it is part of a central plan move to revalue gold. It has to.”

    Maguire says watch silver for an extreme spike to the upside. Maguire says, “Silver is going to break out. I think $50 per ounce is a joke. I think it’s going to be substantially higher than that. It’s not going to be a question of how you can run into resistance with silver. It’s going to be how much physical is available. It’s going to be a heck of a lot higher when you start to have a run on the price.”

Marker Reached, Death Of Globalization Accelerates

  • X22Report Published on Mar 19, 2019
    European banks are in a doom-loop, the same loop that Lehman was in. Core US Factory orders slide once again, the entire world is slowing, this is the [CB] economy imploding on itself. Tariffs do not increase the cost of goods in the way the MSM has been reporting it. Actually the tariffs make the US more competitive. Phase I of the economic plan is complete, Trump has convinced the American people that the economy is great. The death of globalization accelerates.

Peter Schiff: Pricking Dollar Bubble Will Be the Real Crisis — Record Debt Everywhere

  • Peter Schiff: Pricking Dollar Bubble Will Be the Real Crisis — Record Debt Everywhere
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Money manager Peter Schiff says even though there is “record debt everywhere,” the Fed thinks the economy is fine. Schiff explains, “The actual amount of money the government is borrowing is much larger than what they pretend they are borrowing with the official budget. I think the national debt was up around $1.5 trillion in 2018. . . . It’s probably going to be even greater in 2019. . . . We have the biggest annual trade deficit ever in 2018. We’re going to beat that record in 2019. So, we have the twin deficits going off the charts. None of that worries (Fed Head Jay) Powell. We have record corporate debt, record individual debt, record student debt, auto debt, credit card debt and none of that concerns Powell.  We have record debt for state governments and municipalities. We have underfunded pensions in both the public and private sector. We also have interest rates rising. They have risen quite a bit from a few years ago, and all of that is an added cost on an over-leveraged economy. The reason the Fed did this about face, the reason they are now ‘patient’ and the reason they stopped raising interest rates . . . is all about the United States. . . . It’s all about the enormous debt we have. The Fed inflated a bubble where you had all this debt. It’s impossible to normalize interest rates in this scenario. So, they came up with an excuse to stop, but what the markets still don’t realize is it is not enough. The Fed is ultimately going to go back to 0%. The Fed is not going to shrink its balance sheet. They are going to blow it up bigger than it was before they started to shrink it. There is no way to stop the recession and no way to stop the bear market. They are going to have to go back to the QE, but I don’t think the Fed is going to succeed in blowing a bigger bubble.”


    Schiff goes on to say, “I think when they start to try to reflate the assets in stocks, real estate and in bonds, they are just going to prick the dollar bubble, and that’s when we have a real crisis. . . . The dollar is going to collapse, and America’s days of living beyond its means is going to come to an end.”

    On gold, Schiff says, “I think this is the calm before the storm. People don’t really perceive it. Maybe it’s like the Wile E. Coyote who has just run off a cliff, and he just hasn’t looked down yet. He doesn’t realize where he’s standing. . . . Gold shorts are going to lose an incredible amount of money. That’s probably one of the most foolish things you can do. There are a lot of great things out there to short. Gold is the last thing you should be shorting. For central banks, gold is the safest reserve asset. It’s the only asset that is not somebody else’s liability. . . . I think the world is going back to gold. . . . $5,000, $10,000 (per ounce) who knows how high it’s going to go. There is no real ceiling on the price of gold because there is no floor to the value of the dollar and other fiat currency. . . . Gold is going to skyrocket.”

    And silver? Schiff says, “Look at last time. Silver went up to $50 per ounce from $3 to $4 an ounce in 2000-2001. Gold went to $1,900 per ounce, but silver went to $50 per ounce. It was a much bigger percentage gain. . . . If I am right about gold going to $5,000 to $10,000 (per ounce), I am sure the percentage gain in silver will be even bigger.”

Jim Willie: Consequences Of America’s Lost Global Reserve Status for the Dollar

  • Jim Willie: Consequences Of America’s Lost Global Reserve Status for the Dollar
    by Jim Willie, https://www.gold-eagle.com/
    The gold suppression game appears finally to be coming to an end. A Perfect Storm is hitting the gold market, with an internal factor (QE), an external factor (SGE), and a systemic factor (Basel). All three forces are positive in releasing gold from the corrupt clutches of the Anglo-American banker organization. They have been willing to destroy the global financial structure and many national economies, in order not just to maintain the political power, but also to continue the privilege of granting themselves $trillion free loans. In the last ten years since the Lehman Brothers failure, all systems have undergone the same reckless treatment that the mortgage bonds endured. They saw corrupted underwriting, corrupted title database, rigged market pricing, and corrupted demand functions. Slowly the realization is coming to the fore, stated by a few astute analysts. In the last decade, the US-UK banksters have created the USTreasury bond as the global subprime bond. This is the result of astounding persistent magnificent QE abuse and hidden corruption. The so-called financial stimulus is actually hyper monetary inflation, which has destroyed the bond market.

    PERFECT FINANCIAL STORM
    The perfect financial storm will be three to five times worse than the 2008 financial crisis that engulfed the subprime bond market. The corporate bond market is turning gradually into a $trillion BBB junk bond field and broken bone yard, after years of abused bond issuance devoted to share buybacks and executive options. The malinvestment and self-dealing has been atrocious, with a business impact. It can be stated with accuracy that the entire global bond market is subprime, led by the USTBonds. In the last ten years, absolutely nothing has been fixed, no remedy even attempted, while all the errors, crimes, and reckless monetary policy that created the Lehman fiasco with the Global Financial Crisis, have been repeated on a global scale. The great unfolding crisis will engulf sovereign bonds, national banking systems, and major corporations. For the last ten years, the USD-based money supply has almost tripled. The process created a coiled spring. The gold price is due to triple in compensation. Much lost time will be made up for. It just needs some internal, external, and systemic pushes. The Gold market will never let a crisis go to waste. Financial analyst Rob Kirby has recently identified the great gold supply shortage, and described what comes as a Roman Candle with the gold price shooting up an order of magnitude.


    The unfolding global crisis will expose the USTreasury Bond as toxic, the new subprime bond. It will struggle to maintain the safe haven status, but lose the battle. Gold will assume the safe haven status, along with other undetermined hard assets. Attempts by the Basel bunch of uber-bankers, who have no official authority over the Western central banks, will change the course of banking history. That gold is made a risk-free Tier-1 asset will put forth a direct challenge to the USTBond in banking reserves. The Basel or IMF attempt to make a new gold-backed SDR bond will fall on deaf ears and doubtful eyes. In effect, Basel will become pitted directly against the Wall Street bankers, as great adversaries during the Global RESET. Let us lay out the sequence of powerful factors which come in the lost global currency reserve for the USDollar. It is certain bring about the following powerful events and effects:

USA’s Monstrous Debt Time Bomb Just Got Bigger…

  • GoldSilver (w/ Mike Maloney) Published on Mar 12, 2019
    Download Mike’s best-selling book for free here: https://pages.goldsilver.com/freebook

    Today brings news of the latest federal budget proposal, a $4.75T presidential wishlist doomed to defeat in the House that spends money we don’t have. Perhaps most striking is that we are on pace to shatter the all-time debt-to-GDP record established in 1946 — when the country was in the midst of the life-or-death crisis of World War II — for no other reason than politicians lying to us about what the country can afford. One unrealistic promise after another campaign exaggeration from Democrat and Republican alike, one after the next, has gotten us here. Interest rates are still near historic lows.

    As the US economy begins to slow, the Fed knows that by capitulating to demands to keep the Everything Bubble inflated at all costs, by ceasing interest rate hikes, they’ve left themselves scant few tools to combat the coming recession. So few, in fact, the Fed has already started jawboning negative interest rates as part of our future economic landscape. QE 4, and 5, and 6, and beyond…they’re already all but fait accompli. Because this path has been walked before, and there are no offramps. The Japanification of not just Europe, but the US, is well underway. A society unwilling or unable to elect politicians who conduct themselves in a fiscally responsible manner will be punished by inescapable mathematical reality. Japan knows this quicksand all too well. The US, immersing itself deeper by the day, will come to understand the power of this policy trap it wading into, with eyes wide open, soon enough.

Charles Hugh Smith: Elite Dumbing Down Middle-Class into Dust!

Rob Kirby: With System Critically Broken Gold Shoots Higher — Massive Secret Money Printing Will Shoot Gold Higher

  • Rob Kirby: With System Critically Broken Gold Shoots Higher — Massive Secret Money Printing Will Shoot Gold Higher
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Macroeconomic analyst Rob Kirby says $21 trillion in “missing money,” discovered in late 2017, is now a “national security” issue but is not a secret to the leaders of the rest of the world. Kirby explains, “The national governments around the world have become all too aware of the shenanigans that have gone on and the poor stewardship that has been illustrated by the keepers of the U.S. dollar, the world’s reserve currency. This is what is at the root of all of our international economic tension. This is what is really at the root of the difficulties and differences between the American regime, the Chinese regime and the Russian regime. These people are aware of what has transpired, and they are not going to tolerate what’s been done in the name of keeping the U.S. dollar propped up as the world’s reserve currency and the criminality that’s been involved in doing so.”

    Kirby warns, “Nobody could come to grips with the criminality that was present in our system. . . .   The slow burn is probably not in the cards anymore. We are likely to see very significant change in the very near term going forward. . . . We are starting to see signs of admission that things are not as we were told they were . . . . The system is critically broken. It’s like Humpty Dumpty who fell off the wall. They can’t put the pieces back together again. People are going to have to come clean to what has truly transpired or they are going to be hung. The reality of what has transpired is coming to light whether people want to hear it or not.”

    With massive amounts of secret and not so secret money already created, what will happen to gold? Kirby says, “The price of gold will revalue itself once the carnage and the pieces are all on the ground and people around the globe realize the true enormity of the crimes that have been committed. The price of gold will revalue. It will revalue to a dramatically much higher price than we have been accustom to. That’s coming whether we like it or not. . . . We could see something like a real Roman candle in the price of gold. We could see the price do things we could have never ever imagined in the very near future. We are headed for a very, very serious round of inflation and probably a hyperinflation coming to the West. We will live to experience it, and this is baked into the cake. . . . The people in control of the U.S. dollar are very aware that this is coming too. This is why they are muscling up and talking more about gun control and putting in more pieces to implement a police state in America. They are very aware of what is coming.”

It Is Time To Restructure The FedRes To Stop This Rogue Institution: David Stockman

David Stockman: The Undrainable Swamp & The Inevitable Recession

  • For the record, Donald Trump has my sympathies. I won’t take the job of POTUS even if they pay me US$1Billion/year, not that I am of sufficient calibre for it. Reality is, for me, if the Donald is able to achieve 30% of what he set out to do, I will rank him as the Greatest POTUS of all time. He has too many ‘Guns‘ aimed at him. Washington DC power is made up of 99% swamp creatures. CFR, Trilateralists, Bilderbergers …..
  • ChrisMartensondotcom Published on Mar 5, 2019
    What the future of the post “Peak Trump” era holds Love it or hate it, the potency of the Trump Administration is on the wane, soon to be stuck in the mire of the Swamp it has deepened instead of drained, while the economy falls into one hell of a recession — so claims former Regan-era Cabinet member and Congressman David Stockman.

    In his new book Peak Trump, Stockman notes how the wide divergence between Trump the campaigner and Trump the president appears to be proving to be his undoing. Rather than fight to dismantle the institutions he railed against as a candidate — most notably the Deep State and the Federal Reserve — Trump has embraced them. Now, when this latest asset bubble bursts (and Stockman believes the markets saw their peak back in Fall 2018), Trump will ‘own’ that. Having chosen to tie his administration’s success to the rising price of the S&P 500 since taking office, he won’t be able to foist the blame of a market crash on his predecessors. Similarly, the Deep State — especially the military industrial complex — is experiencing a bonanza under the Trump administration. As a result, the Swamp is deeper than it has ever been.

True of false? You decide.
