Chris Powell: Global Manipulation Cannot Stop Inflation

  • This is Bigger than Gold & Silver Manipulation – Chris Powell
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Chris Powell, Treasurer and Secretary of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA), says price manipulation of all markets is a major problem the world faces. Powell explains, “This is an issue far bigger than gold and silver. Gold and silver are just minerals, atomic elements. The issue for us is much bigger than that. The issue is free and transparent markets and having an accountable government. You cannot have those things unless you have freely traded monetary metals markets and freely trading currency markets as well. We don’t worship the golden calf or the silver bull. We are pursuing a much more justice oriented agenda here. We want government to tell us what they are doing in the markets. We want them to be open and accountable, and that requires a free and transparent monetary metals market.”

    No matter how much financial manipulation is occurring on a global scale, you cannot suppress the outcome of those policies. One of the outcomes is inflation, and yet the new cover of Bloomberg/Newsweek asks the question “Is Inflation Dead?” Powell says, “This is worse than a prediction. It’s a delusion. Inflation is all around us. I don’t know what world the government is living in where they put out monthly reports saying inflation is tame. These people are not paying medical insurance premiums. They are not paying college tuition. They are not paying state taxes. They are not going to the grocery store and seeing prices rise monthly and, of course, they are not noticing the inflation that has manifested itself in the stock market. . . . Inflation is not dead. It’s all around us, and it has been all around us.”

    GATA has been trying to get the U.S. government to come clean about massive market manipulations. GATA says they have hit a stone wall of silence. Powell concludes, “Presumably, the U.S. Treasury is secretly trading in any number of markets and refuses to say which markets they are. . . . I heard a U.S. Assistant Attorney move for a Summary Judgement dismissal of our lawsuit saying, without admitting the U.S. government was rigging the markets as we complained in our lawsuit, the U.S. government does claim the power to do what our lawsuit complained of, and that was to secretly rig the markets. I think we have established this now to the satisfaction of any reasonable person . . . . Especially since the CME Group, which operates the major futures exchanges in the United States, has just renewed what it calls its central bank incentive program, which gives enormous volume trading discounts to governments and central banks for surreptitiously trading all the futures markets. . . . So, we know the CME group has created mechanisms for secret trading by the U.S. government and other governments to get discounts in all of the futures trading in the United States.”

    In closing, Powell reminds us, “At some point, manipulations do fail . . . . Manipulations only work because of deception.” Powell contends that global financial powers are trying to suppress inflation through the manipulation of all futures and commodities, but it’s not working.

Mueller Sour Grapes Report, Border Collapsing, Economic Confusion

  • Mueller Sour Grapes Report, Border Collapsing, Economic Confusion
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 380 4.19.19)
    The redacted report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller was released Thursday, and you might as well call it the “Sour Grapes We Didn’t Get Trump” report. There was no collusion and no obstruction but a lot of dirt throwing and whining by the partisan prosecutors who wrote the report. Trump is attacked in this report because he had the audacity to defend himself from false charges. Now, it’s team Trump’s turn to prosecute the perpetrators of this seditious treasonous fraud. People are going to jail over the real collusion to destroy a duly elected President.

    According to former DEA Chief Karen Tandy, the border is collapsing under the weight of mass illegal immigration. The Border Patrol is simply releasing many illegals into America as they have no place to hold them.

    The economic signals are all over the map. Unemployment is near record lows and, yet, retail stores are closing at a record pace in 2019. The stock market is nearing record highs again, but consumers have a record amount of consumer debt at $4 trillion. Judging the economy as good or bad depends on your vantage point.

Bill Holter: Entire System Based on Debt with Historic Liability

  • Bill Holter: Entire System Based on Debt with Historic Liability
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Financial writer and precious metals expert Bill Holter is “not worried at all” about the current price smash down for precious metals. Holter says, “We live in a world where all liabilities are more than all liabilities in history. This whole system is going to come down. . . . If you see a house burn down, the only thing left is the foundation. That’s the only thing left because the foundation doesn’t burn. That’s what gold and silver are, and that’s what’s going to be left when this house of financial cards burns down.”


    Why are dark powers intentionally driving metal prices down? It’s all part of a very simple thought control message. Holter explains, “Basically, it’s so the people believe that gold is bad and the dollar is good. It’s basically to support the dollar, and also thus support the Treasury market. . . . This has to have an official backing to it. It could not be done if they were not given a pass. This would not be going on if there was true rule of law. . . . We don’t have free markets. There are no markets. All markets are rigged. . . . Markets should be panicking that we are moving towards hyperinflation. All markets are locked down, and they are locked down by derivatives. . . . In 2008, there were $1.4 quadrillion in derivatives. How is it possible that derivatives are larger than the system as a whole? The answer to that is because derivatives have become the system. Derivatives are what price the system. You are basically putting up one cent to control $1. So, it’s easy to put the price of something where you want it to be.”

    Holter contends, “The entire system is based on debt. The entire system is a liability. So, some people are getting some of their money out of the system into real money (gold and silver) which is no one else’s liability. . . . The biggest thing is there is too much debt in the system. Everybody owes everybody, and all you need is one link in the chain to break. All you need is one entity that cannot make good on what they promised.”

Keiser Report: The Failure of Capitalism or Monetarism?

  • RT Published on Apr 13, 2019
    Check Keiser Report website for more: http://www.maxkeiser.com/ In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss Ray Dalio’s claims that capitalism has failed. They wonder if monetarism has instead failed and ponder the notion that interest rates, the price of money, is the only tool with which to ‘fix’ the economy. They also discuss Saudi Arabia’s threat, to journalists at Reuters, that they could abandon the dollar. In the second half, Max continues his interview with professor and author Steve Keen about the failure of negative interest rates, the promise of a Green New Deal or a Trump infrastructure package, and about Ray Dalio’s failure of capitalism claims.

Corrupt Central Banks ‘Print Money Every Time They Make a Mistake’ – RT’s Keiser Report

  • Corrupt Central Banks ‘Print Money Every Time They Make a Mistake’ – RT’s Keiser Report
    by https://www.rt.com/
    The European Central Bank’s corporate bond buying program has led to extreme malinvestment and misallocation of capital, allowing companies to make questionable decisions.

    RT’s Keiser Report discusses the issue, using as an example German pharmaceuticals company Bayer’s takeover of Monsanto. According to Max Keiser, every central bank “willing to finance dodgy deals crowds out the good companies, so you end up with a lot of bad companies.”

    He says central banks should not be allowed to do deals as they only print money to make those deals. “Every time they make mistake they just print more money. And that methodology is now working its way down to a corporate level,” Max explains. “We’re living in meritocracy where everybody is free to compete; you just have to be better than the competition,” says Stacy Herbert.

    In fact, they are “propping up dodgy competition maybe that’s why we have this ongoing crisis because these huge corporate behemoths just run out of ideas other than buying their own shares and taking free money from central banks.”

Four Ways that Uncle Sam Will Respond to Its $75 Trillion Insolvency

  • Four Ways that Uncle Sam Will Respond to Its $75 Trillion Insolvency
    by Simon Black, https://www.sovereignman.com/
    Last week I told you that the US government recently reported a negative net worth of MINUS $75 TRILLION. That’s not a type-o. According to the Treasury Department’s annual financial report for Fiscal Year 2018 (which they just published last week), the US government is hopelessly bankrupt. Now, I’m not talking about this trying to stoke fear and panic.

    Quite the opposite– I’m hoping that this conversation results in calm optimism. But the point is that it’s an important conversation to have… because a number as large as $75 trillion absolutely has consequences.

    To believe that any nation can be so desperately insolvent without suffering any negative impact is just plain foolish. Debts have to be paid. Obligations have to be met. So at some point, with numbers these gruesome, something has to break down. This is not a dire prediction or wild conspiracy theory. It’s an arithmetic certainty.Remember, this isn’t even my analysis. The government itself acknowledges its $75 trillion insolvency. The Social Security Administration acknowledges that its trust funds will run out of money in 15 years. This is happening. So let’s take a look at the government’s very narrow playbook:
