Rob Kirby: Bankers Will Send Gold and Silver Prices to the Moon. Dark Money Will Cause Hyperinflation

  • Rob Kirby: Bankers Will Send Gold and Silver Prices to the Moon. Dark Money Will Cause Hyperinflation
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (Early Sunday Release)
    Macroeconomic analyst Rob Kirby says there is enough so-called “Dark Money” already out there to cause hyperinflation. Kirby explains, “The Saint Louis Fed keeps track of the monetary aggregates, and they tell us the money supply is “X.”   My view of reliability of that data reporting–I think it’s all bogus because they are not measuring or counting how many dollars would be contained in an entity like the Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF) where it’s “Dark Money.”  Instead of the money supply being “X,” maybe the real money supply is 4 or 5 or 10 times “X.”

    So, the money needed for hyperinflation does not need to be created, it’s already in existence. Kirby says, “Yes, it is in existence.  It’s hiding in dark pools where the monetary elites have it at their disposal anytime they want to do an intervention in the gold market and dump paper dollars or digital dollars into the COMEX to knock the price of gold down.  They have it at their fingertips whenever they want to use it.  When the U.S. government auctions bonds, and the foreign interest isn’t big enough to soak up all the bonds, they have this dark slush fund where they can pull money out of  . . . and they can effectively prop up and buy bonds whenever they want.  I find it truly amazing that the United States of America has never had a failed bond auction.”

    Kirby also points out, “If you accept that these “Dark Dollars” exist, I now pose this question. What happens if the people in control of those “Dark Dollars,” the trillions of “Dark Dollars” that are in existence, what happens if they get concerned that those “Dark Dollars” might soon turn into confetti and be worthless?  What do you think they’re going to do with those dollars then?  . . . . They would buy everything and anything, anything they perceive to be rising in value or tangible, anything they think would be accepted in commerce around the world.  Bitcoin would be one of the go-to things, but I would say expressly the real objects of that money would be the physical metals, gold and silver.  This could topple the debacle that goes on in paper markets in COMEX and London.   I have long predicted, and I do believe I will live to see a day, that you cannot buy an ounce of gold with fiat money.”

Gerald Celente: 2018 Predictions – Gold Will Hit a Bitcoin High

  • Gerald Celente: 2018 Predictions – Gold Will Hit a Bitcoin High
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Top trends researcher Gerald Celente says he sees strong trends shaping up for 2018. First up, the embattled President Trump.  Celente says, “There’s not been one shred of evidence, period, paragraph, that Russia had anything to do with tapping into or hacking the DNC information and going into their computers.  It has nothing to do with Trump, but what it does is it’s taking the people’s minds off the major issues.  It’s also building that military industrial complex even bigger. We’ve got to watch out for those Russians.  Russia’s GDP is about 7% of America’s.  Trump has increased our military budget $54 billion.  The entire Russian military budget is $48 billion.  You talk to the average person, and they hate the Russians.  It’s working perfectly . . . We don’t see Trump being impeached.”


    On the Clintons, Celente contends, “Going back to the Uranium One deal. Yes, it is going to fall back on the Clintons.  The hundreds of millions of dollars given to the Clinton Foundation by Russians as they did the uranium deal.  Those are facts.  We don’t see anything happening to Trump.

    On the economy, Celente says, “We are now going into almost a year going into the Trump rally. I was negative on the stock market until Trump got elected.  What happened?  We did a 180 (degree turn) a week after he got elected and said this rally is real. . . . Trump is pro-business . . . it’s good for the markets and that sector.”

    But what about the 2018 economic forecast? Celente says, “For the economy, we see a slowdown.  Interest rates are going up.  That’s the bet.  Interest rates are going to go up another 25 basis points in December.  So, we believe by the 2nd quarter of 2018, you are going to start to see a slowdown because the only thing that has pumped up the markets is the cheap money. . . .The fish rots from the head down, the markets are going to melt from the head down.  The head being the very rich.  The top 10% of the rich own 96% of the stock. . . . So, this thing rots down, and we are seeing it now on research.  It’s going to fall from the top.”

    Celente also predicts China will make big headlines in 2018. Celente points out, “China is not using petro-dollars.  They are buying Russian oil, their biggest supplier, with yuan.  You can cash in the yuan for gold.  It’s the same with Iran and with Saudi Arabia.  This is another reason that China is going to go further.  You can start bringing your dollars to Walmart in a wheelbarrow because that’s what they will be worth. . . . What kept the dollar alive as the world reserve currency is that all the oil being traded is being bought in dollars.  If you are paying for oil in other currencies . . . the Federal Reserve can’t keep printing up all the money that they want.  They won’t have it out there as a reserve currency.  You will see inflation skyrocket in this country, and gold will hit like a Bitcoin high.  We believe it’s starting to happen.

Paul Craig Roberts: Markets Fall When Dollar Falls. Looming Catastrophe Hanging Over Our Heads

  • Paul Craig Roberts: Markets Fall When Dollar Falls. Looming Catastrophe Hanging Over Our Heads
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Former Assistant Treasury Secretary in the Reagan Administration, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, says the record highs you see in the stock markets are based on “phony profits” that come from global central banks “propping up” the financial system. Roberts says, “Any of these central banks are really only there for a handful of big banks. That’s all they are concerned with. All the Federal Reserve has been concerned with for the last decade is the welfare of a handful of mega banks. Of course, the banks are too large. They should have never been allowed to get that large. When you have a bank too big to fail, then your policy has failed. You’ve allowed too much concentration. Where is anti-trust? Where is the Sherman Act? Everything that was legislated in the past to prevent the kind of looming catastrophe that is hanging over our heads, this looming catastrophe is produced by central banks. They are perpetuating it because they don’t know how to get out of it.”


    The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has just warned on the profitability of nine huge global banks. Some say they equal nine possible Lehman Brothers, which was the financial institution that started the 2008 meltdown. Is the IMF terrified of the slightest correction in the markets? Dr. Roberts says, “I think so, yes, because it’s not based on reality. It’s based on massive liquidity. So, it’s full of all kinds of dangers.”

    The biggest danger to Dr. Roberts, who has a PhD in economics, is the U.S. dollar. Dr. Roberts contends, “It seems to me that the only thing that would cause the Federal Reserve to stop the liquidity would be if the U.S. dollar fell under attack. If for some reason people said, hey, we don’t want the dollar anymore, and they started moving out of dollars into other currencies or into something else, if they cease to hold assets in dollars, if that happened, the Fed would have to try to raise interest rates to support the dollar. Then you could see that everything could come apart. If the interest rates would go up, there would be all kinds of derivatives that would not be sustainable. The stock market would collapse. It would be a mess. It would be an utter mess. That’s what the IMF is worried about. It’s a messy situation. How do you get out of it?”

    How does Dr. Roberts say people should protect themselves? Dr. Roberts says, “I would not be in debt.”

China Dollar Dump Means Hyperinflation – Chris Martenson

  • China Dollar Dump Means Hyperinflation – Chris Martenson
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Resource analyst and futurist Chris Martenson says everyone should be taking notice of our “dangerous markets.” At the center of the danger zone is the declining U.S. dollar.  Martenson explains, “We are talking about a steady erosion of the dollar as a reserve currency.  I think that is most likely.  The only thing that could make that really go fast is some kind of war.  The United States and China, we got to keep our eye on this because Trump has been threatening a trade war with China.  China responded and said if you do that, we may dump the dollar. . . . So, there is all this trade and financial back and forth and maybe even actual war at some point. . . . China has the ability to really impact the dollar in a big way on the world stage.  We better hope it does not come to that because a slow erosion we can adjust to; a quick erosion is going to really roil the markets and maybe blow a few of them up.”

    Martenson contends the U.S. could see hyperinflation in a short time if China “dumps the dollar.” Martenson explains, “The way that works is let’s say they want to unload $500 billion on some Tuesday morning.  Who is going to buy that $500 billion?  Who is on the other side of that trade?  Well, if there are not enough people bidding for those dollars, the price has to fall until you find enough people to absorb those, and the dollar would fall in value against all other sorts of other things such as other currencies, oil, gold, silver and all those things. . . . We would be looking for a paired event.  What we would be looking for is interest rates starting to rise on Treasuries and the dollar starting to fall in value in value against a variety of things.  Once we see those two things, we know we have a financial war or a monetary war. . . . That’s what blows up the derivatives market.  That’s what makes difficulties for traders.  That’s what makes the high frequency computers say I don’t like this and bolt and instantly evaporate from the markets.”

Lynette Zang: Central Bankers & Insiders Want a Controlled Demolition System Reset?

  • Published on Jul 25, 2017
    Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St welcomes first time guest, former Wall St stock broker and Chief Market Strategist at ITM Trading https://www.itmtrading.com/, Lynette Zang. Lynette’s articles, videos and other interviews are available here: 


    https://www.itmtrading.com/blog/lynet…

    During this 30+ minute interview, Jason starts off by asking Lynette if she thinks global central banks are in a currency war or if there’s a coordinated devaluation carousel going on? Lynette says there’s both a currency war and a coordinated devaluation happening.

    Jason and Lynette discuss how central banks like the Swiss National Bank run currency pegs and how they are buying up large amounts of assets like stocks and essentially turning themselves into hedge funds.

    Next, Jason asks Lynette about the velocity of money chart she shows on her other video interviews. What is the velocity of money? Why has it collapsed? Lynette thinks that asset prices have already had a hyperinflation and that eventually the velocity of money or as Art Cashin calls it “lending and spending” will pick up in the real economy and inflation will accelerate. This has been done to fight deflation. If the velocity of money doesn’t pick up, Lynette and Jason both expect stagflation in the real economy to get worse.

    Jason then asks Lynette what stagflation is? Jason and Lynette discuss how stagflation, or high inflation and high unemployment, are not supposed to occur simultaneously according to the Phillips curve in Keynesian Economics.

    To wrap up the interview, Jason asks Lynette why gold and silver prices haven’t risen despite everything crazy happening in the global economy and with geopolitics. Lynette says there’s clear paper price manipulation of gold and silver prices, but smart money insiders are buying up high value and high rarity gold and silver numismatic coins.

    Lynette thinks in a “race to debase” global central banks and other economic and political insiders are doing a controlled demolition until the next global financial system is implemented via some kind of a reset.

Clif High: Crypto Currencies Break Loose, then Gold & Silver

  • Crypto Currencies Show Global Reset Underway – Clif High
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Internet data mining expert Clif High has just finished an in-depth dive on crypto currencies such as Bitcoin. High uses what he calls “predictive linguistics” to spot trends and make predictions for future events.  With the latest price spikes in so-called blockchain type crypto currencies, what does Clif High see with his latest Internet mining report?  High reveals, “We are not at a period of time where we are valuing one store of wealth, Bitcoin against a store of debt, the dollar.  We are, instead, looking at an episode of hyperinflation. It is an episode where a great many people lose faith in the dollar, and they rush into Bitcoin and other crypto currencies. . . .   There are people coming in and out of the crypto space based on the degrading levels of confidence in the U.S. dollar.  So, we are at a global currency reset at this point. There will be no Bretton Woods conference.  There will be no G-7 central bank meeting that will be meaningful because these individuals are behind the curve.  The curve is being led by all the people as they lose confidence in all of the fiat currencies. . . . We have demonstrable proof that the managers of the dollar are very bad at it.  Lots of people understand this, and they want out of the dollar and into something else.”

    On charges things like Bitcoin are nothing more than a Ponzi scheme, High rebuts, “We are at a flux point where one system is dying off and we are just about to head into the other one. As we go into that transition, this point of time we are in right now is where all of this is coming up, all the froth, all of the corruption globally, because we can’t pay for it any more with dying dollars.  You can’t bribe people with dying dollars.  We have to have good solid money, and we are developing it on our own because the sovereigns failed us.  When the sovereigns failed to supply wheat, then the French Revolution happened and off with their heads.  We can’t take being starved by a bunch of butt heads at the top.  “We the People” can tolerate a great deal, but the body politic is self-correcting. . . . In this case, we have decided the butt heads in charge of the Fed and body politic have to go because those guys are just too corrupt, too criminal, and they are in our way. . . . Both the dollar and the banks are doomed, and I am not messing with those.”
