U.S. Economic Anomalies Point To A Complete Economic Meltdown

  • Published on May 19, 2015
    Greece is trapped and the central bankers might be ready to Cyprus (bail-in) Greece. More than half the college graduates need financial help from their families. Housing permits and starts miraculously increases with lumber prices and demand decreasing. U.S. economic anomalies point to a complete meltdown of the economy. Obama says he will de-militarize the police, but he is actually doing the opposite. Every country the U.S. operated a CIA black site in the governments of those countries had full knowledge. As Ukraine defaults Poroshenko passes a bill so creditors cannot collect. NATO continues with Russian troop buildup propaganda. Saudi war planes pound Yemen, Kerry blames the Houthi’s for the Saudi bombing. U.S. protecting their proxy army in Syria by removing intelligence before Syrian armed forces acquired the intelligence.

This Is Central Planning: A “World Of Activist Central Banks” Who “Manage Price Levels In Markets”

  • This Is Central Planning: A “World Of Activist Central Banks” Who “Manage Price Levels In Markets”
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com  
    Remember when news, fundamentals, ungoalseeked “data”, and even math, mattered? Since it is becoming increasingly hazy, here is Bloomberg’s Richard Breslow waxing nostalgic over the good old days.

    Cui Bono, by Richard Breslow
    The bad news is that we are investing in a world where Graham and Dodd’s “Security Analysis” has become a quaint relic of simpler times, when the nuts and bolts of a company’s fundamental were meant to motivate how analysts viewed its prospects. Now we have QE and buybacks.


    We live in a world where good Keynesians Tobin and Brainard’s work on valuation (which led to Tobin’s q test) was meant to remind investors that markets needed to be grounded in some form of reality. (Interestingly, as an aside, William Brainard was strongly in favor of Janet Yellen being appointed to the Fed Chair). Today we read that equities are at all-time highs because weak economic numbers may keep the Fed on hold longer. The good news is that investing is a lot easier if you have central banks on your side.

    Central bankers admit they follow the markets, as they should. What has evolved in this world of activist central banks as proxy sovereign wealth funds are policy makers who watch, care and try to manage price levels in markets, rather than managing liquidity and continuous pricing.

Here come the TRUTH BOMB(s)!

Global Super Storm meltdown??

Global Super Storm meltdown??

Boom-Goes-The-Dynamite-Explosion

  • Here come the TRUTH BOMB(s)! 
    by Bill Holter, via http://blog.milesfranklin.com/  
    A few months back I theorized the rest of the world led by a Chinese/Russian alliance might let loose with a “truth bomb” or a series of them.  It is clear the U.S. has been on a pathway in the desire to start a war.  We have pressed in Syria and the Ukraine but so far to no avail.  From the standpoint of the U.S., it is my opinion that a war is “necessary” to point at and blame for the financial collapse surely coming because in no way can “policy” be blamed.

    The upcoming month of June will be a telling one as the situation in Greece comes to possibly a final head.  Tiny Greece is important for several reasons.  The first and most obvious, they are certainly a firing pin for the derivatives market.  Should they default, what will it be called?  Somehow, some way, a Greek default cannot be classified as one because a cascade of failures will immediately follow.  Financially, Greece can take the Western financial system down all on its own.

    Next, Greece is also a member of NATO, what will they do when the current economic and financial sanctions on Russia run out?  Will they vote to extend the sanctions or vote in their own interest against them?   Or, will they accept financial help and the cash flow from the proposed natural gas pipeline?  A lesser question is what will happen to their EU status?  Will they quit, get kicked out or remain as a black sheep in a dirty family?

    I ask these questions again because Greece now says they will run out of money on June 5th.  They have already pilfered pension funds and sequestered local agency monies, while pleading for the previously pledged but so far withheld aid.  Atop this and more important are the sanctions on Russia due to end also in June.  June is a very pivotal month!

    To this point, the Chinese and Russians have been patient but firm dealing with the U.S..  Russia has warned about arming western Ukraine and placing firepower on Russia’s borders.  China has sternly warned the U.S. regarding the disputed islands in the South Sea, a near spark incident was avoided last week.  My point is this, the U.S. has been pushing while Russia and China have stood their ground.  How long this can go on without some sort of “accident” morphing into conflict is questionable.  As an example are the recent events surrounding the Spratly islands in the South China Sea , can the U.S. really push China in their own back yard?    China and Russia are fully aware of the U.S. falling further and further into a weakened position in many ways, time is running out before a financial collapse and they know a wounded animal often strikes in desperation.  They must in my opinion do something very soon to neutralize the U.S. or face the reality of fighting.

This October The World Will Change: “China Is Preparing For Something Big”

“China… across the board… is preparing for something big in currency markets.”

  • This October The World Will Change: “China Is Preparing For Something Big”
    by Mac Slavo, May 18th, 2015, SHTFplan.com  
    This October may see the beginning of the end for the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Twice every decade the International Monetary Fund meets to discuss their Special Drawing Rights (SDR) currency basket. Currently comprised of the dollar, Japanese Yen, British Pound and Euro, if China has their way a few months from now, we may well see the Chinese Yuan take its place among the world’s most trusted currencies.

    U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew says, “China isn’t ready for currency reserve status,” and would certainly like to see the Chinese blocked from entry, preserving the dollar’s status as the world’s go-to currency and primary mechanism of exchange for global international trade.

    But while Lew and his predecessors have presided over the largest growth in national debt in world history, the Chinese have been strategically positioning, much like the United States did in the early 1900’s, to not just become the world’s largest economy, but to be the super power of the 21st century.

    Forget for a moment what’s being touted by analysts, forecasters, politicians, and financial officials who say China is not ready. Focus instead on the actions being undertaken by China and you’ll understand why Chinese President Hu Jintao says that the dollar is a product of the past.

  • John Rubino: When Cash Is Outlawed The Banksters Have Won
    by Financial Survival Network
    John Rubino joins us for his latest weekly installment. 

    Once cash is outlawed the government will be in complete control of your financial decisions, or so they think. When they want you to spend more, they turn up the pressure to spend and when inflation starts heating up they’ll turn it down. However, man is very ingenious and will come up with a way to beat the bankster, guaranteed! Whether it’s with gold and silver or with gift cards the law of unintended consequences will prevail.

    On the Monday, May 18 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert calls for changes to the upcoming Jade Helm military exercise, and says it’s “suspicious” that red states like Utah and Texas were labeled “hostile.” Also, new documents obtained by Judicial Watch conclusively prove the Obama administration lied and engaged in spin over the Benghazi attack, and more on the biker gangs battle in Central Texas. Survivalist expert, author and radio host Steve Quayle joins the show today to break down the latest on geo-engineering, Jade Helm and more.

Hugo Salinas-Price: Apocalypse and Enormous Disorder Coming. We Are Headed Over Niagara Falls!

  • Hugo Salinas-Price: Apocalypse and Enormous Disorder Coming.
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (Early Sunday Release)
    Mexican retail mogul Hugo Salinas-Price is worried about the common man and the upcoming currency calamity that is approaching the globe.  Salinas-Price says, “It certainly isn’t getting better when you have some intellectuals going so crazy as to say they want to ban cash.  We can’t go too much further along this road.  This is utter madness.  We’re not supposed to use cash anymore?  Salinas Price goes on to say, “If we have these lunatics running things, it can’t get any better.  We have people running things that have forgotten about what motivates the common man. . . . I want people to have silver because it is going to protect them.”


    Why does the common man need the protection of precious metals?  Salinas-Price says, “I just read today the global debt is $200 trillion, and it’s grown from the last crisis in 2008.  Something has to happen to take care of that debt.  Either it’s going to be repudiated or it’s going to be inflated away, or it’s going to be paid with taxation. . . . We are headed over Niagara Falls.”

    Salinas-Price, 83 years old and a billionaire, warns currencies can suffer huge inflation risks.  Since the mid 1970’s, Salinas-Price points out the peso exchange rate has plunged compared to the U.S. dollar.  Salinas-Price says, “From 1976 to date, from 12.50 pesos (to $1 US) we are now at 15,100 pesos (to $1 US) and going further down.  Savings can become worthless, and that’s what I tell people.  Don’t save money that is going to devalue.  This inflation that is going on that is presently debt that is like a cloud that is up there.  When it begins to liquidate, it’s going to be pouring down.  People will be rushing around trying to buy things.  The money is going to be worthless because in a liquidation, what can you buy with all this water (fiat money) that is coming down.  As long as it is up there in credit, it’s okay.  It’s up there in the cloud, but if it begins to liquidate, watch out.”

    So, is Salinas-Price predicting the same huge devaluation for the U.S. dollar as what has happened to the Mexican peso?  Salinas-Price contends, “Same cause, same effect.  It is absolutely unavoidable.  That’s why I have been urging people to have silver and gold.”

Bill Holter: “All Hell Has Been Breaking Loose” in the Global Credit Markets

  • Published on May 17, 2015
    Writer & Researcher Bil Holter joins me to discuss the latest as we document the collapse. Over just the past week, Bill explains, “all hell has been breaking lose” in the global credit markets.


    Bill wants readers of SGT Report to understand that “the stock market(s) are merely a side show to the grand Big Top circus of the credit markets because the credit (bond) markets are so much larger than the equity markets.” And Bill says when the credit markets implode – EVERYTHING will implode. 

    So how will it all end? Bill explains, “This is going to be an overnight or over the weekend type of event where you have what you have on a Friday and you wake up on a Monday morning and you can’t trade anything and you’re locked in to your position. So it’s absolutely imperative that you have what you WANT to have, because you won’t have a chance to change it” And Bill asks, “Do realize that gold and silver are THE only monies out there that are not “credit based” or derive their values via the credit markets … markets which will ultimately will be closed?”

    The choice is yours, paper brokerage account statements and ones and zeros on a computer screen, or real physical wealth. The time to make your decision is running out.

The Coming Crash of All Crashes – But in Debt

This is what is coming up for the world financial system.

This is what is coming up for the world financial system.

  • The Coming Crash of All Crashes – But in Debt
    by , http://armstrongeconomics.com/
    Why are governments rushing to eliminate cash? During previous recoveries following the recessionary declines from the peaks in the Economic Confidence Model, the central banks were able to build up their credibility and ammunition so to speak by raising interest rates during the recovery. This time, ever since we began moving toward Transactional Banking with the repeal of Glass Steagall in 1999, banks have looked at profits rather than their role within the economic landscape. They shifted to structuring products and no longer was there any relationship with the client. This reduced capital formation for it has been followed by rising unemployment among the youth and/or their inability to find jobs within their fields of study. The VELOCITY of money peaked with our ECM 1998.55 turning point from which we warned of the pending crash in Russia.

    The damage inflicted with the collapse of Russia and the implosion of Long-Term Capital Management in the end of 1998, has demonstrated that the VELOCITY of money has continued to decline. There has been no long-term recovery. This current mild recovery in the USA has been shallow at best and as the rest of the world declines still from the 2007.15 high with a target low in 2020, the Federal Reserve has been unable to raise interest rates sufficiently to demonstrate any recovery for the spreads at the banks between bid and ask for money is also at historical highs. Banks will give secured car loans at around 4% while their cost of funds is really 0%. This is the widest spread between bid and ask since the Panic of 1899.


    We face a frightening collapse in the VELOCITY of money and all this talk of eliminating cash is in part due to the rising hoarding of cash by households both in the USA and Europe. This is a major problem for the central banks have also lost control to be able to stimulate anything.The loss of traditional stimulus ability by the central banks is now threatening the nationalization of banks be it directly, or indirectly. We face a cliff that government refuses to acknowledge and their solution will be to grab more power – never reform.

Andrew Maguire: Precious Metals Manipulation Endgame

  • Andrew Maguire: Precious Metals Manipulation Endgame
    by Turd Ferguson, http://www.tfmetalsreport.com/  
    The dollar is sinking like a stone. Paper gold and silver are rallying and above their major moving averages. Physical metal demand continues to accelerate worldwide. What a perfect time to get an update from our friend, Andrew Maguire.

    This was recorded Friday morning US time, between 11:00 amd and 11:30 am EDT, so it’s about as current as you can get. Over the course of this discussion, Andy addresses:

    * the changes to the London Fix process
    * unallocated London gold still affects price but the coming Allocated Bullion Exchange will have a significant impact
    * how London is still able to settle physical trades and the news this morning that England showed a net export to Switzerland of nearly 100 metric tonnes for the month of March
    * in the absence of published GOFO, how Andy computes tightness and/or backwardation in the gold market
    * his current price targets and projected resistance levels

    I think you’ll find this podcast to be great fun and quite informative. Today’s action in the metals and the dollar sets us up for a very interesting end of the month. This “interview” could not have come at a more opportune time.

David Stockman: We Are Now Entering The Terminal Phase Of The Global Financial System That Will End In Total Collapse!

Financial Armageddon dead ahead !

Financial Armageddon dead ahead !

  • David Stockman: We Are Now Entering The Terminal Phase Of The Global Financial System That Will End In Total Collapse!
    by http://www.kingworldnews.com  
    Today David Stockman, the man President Ronald Reagan called upon along with Dr. Paul Craig Roberts to help save the United States from disaster in 1981, warned King World News that we are now entering the “terminal phase” of the global financial system that will end in total collapse.

    Eric King:  “David, I wanted to get your thoughts on gold in the midst of this big deflation you think is in front of us.  When you look at the collapse of 2008 – 2009, gold was one of the best performing asset classes.  Gold went down but it went down much less relative to virtually everything else.  Contrast that to 1973 – 1974, where we had a 47 percent stock market collapse.  But during that time we had skyrocketing gold and silver.  What’s in front of us because it looks like gold and silver may be ending a 4 year bear market and ready for a 1973 – 1974-style up-move?”

    David Stockman: 
    “Yes.  I think the two periods are quite different.  Although at the bottom it’s central bank errors that underlie each.  But remember that in the 1970s we had just finally exited a semi-stable Bretton Woods Gold Exchange Standard system.  There still was, at the end of the day, an anchor on the central banks that was thrown overboard by Nixon in 1971….

Heads Up! National Guard Called Up, Police Plan for Potential Cleveland Uprising

  • Published on May 15, 2015
    The Ohio National Guard is alerting soldiers to report to duty in preparation for potential riots following the trial of Cleveland, Ohio, police officer Michael Brelo, according to an insider.


    At least one National Guard company was ordered to report to home station on May 17 with 72-hour bags because the verdict for Brelo, accused of manslaughter for shooting two unarmed black suspects, is expected on May 18 or 19, said the source who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

    A Cleveland resident also tweeted that she saw police driving around with “riot shields sticking out of their trunks” in anticipation of the Brelo decision.

    “A girl on Facebook posted a photo of the riot gear her father received from the Cleveland Police Dept.,” another Cleveland resident tweeted. “It truly amazes me that Cleveland is armed for a riot that hasn’t even started yet.”

    A few weeks ago, ABC 5 Cleveland reported that area police departments were buying up riot gear, bulletproof vests and other safety equipment.

    “We are getting more calls with everything that’s going on in the country, but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” the sales manager for a police uniform supplier, Brandon Demarco, said.

    Brelo was charged with two counts of voluntary manslaughter in the Nov. 29, 2012 deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams who were both gunned down in a barrage of 137 shots fired by 13 Cleveland officers.

    Hank Davis, a former gang member who now works with at-risk youth, heard that out-of-town agitators have already arrived in Cleveland and are pressuring residents to riot after the verdict.
