  • Jim Willie: The Gold Standard Is Emerging!
    by http://www.silverdoctors.com/
    Summary
    The Chinese Are Putting in Place a Link Between Oil and Gold.   The Petro-Dollar has almost completely vanished. The Gold Standard is Emerging…

    By Hat Trick Letter Editor Jim Willie, GoldenJackass:
    The Gold Trade Note is gradually coming into view, its form within structured contracts is taking shape as components. the Petro-Dollar has almost completely vanished. The Petro-Yuan is essentially here in its infancy, in rudimentary form. the leap to the Gold Trade Note will be easy, once the pieces are aligned and in place. This new note for usage in secure trade settlement is in the inception process. It will be structured within existing trading vehicles and platforms.

    The Russians and Chinese appear to be forming the basis for the payment vehicle within the oil trade. Consider it as a formal reflection of the Iran-India gold for oil trade.

    Bilateral Oil for RMB Sale + Shanghai Gold Exchange = Gold Trade Note

    This triangle is precisely what China and Russia are doing now.
    Russian oil & gas is being sold for Chinese Yuan, and then Yuan is traded for Gold at the Shanghai Gold Exchange. The trade is not complex at all. Oil for RMB for Gold, creating a transaction payment in gold terms. The part unclear is posted margin to confirm and seal the transaction. The immediate implication is that the Chinese RMB will have a quasi-gold link. The original model used might have been the Iranian oil sales to India, with payment completed using Turkish gold. Such gold for oil trade appears to have been commonly executed from 2006 to 2010, and likely beyond that date.


    The Jackass has been expecting that the Gold Trade Note would be structured in a clever way, using swap contracts in major global commerce. It might be taking form in the triangle cited as the working template. Oil is the biggest commercial trade item. Soon comes the RMB-based contract for crude oil, traded in Shanghai. It will surely cause big waves, a major disruptive event.

    NEW SCHEISS DOLLAR & GOLD TRADE STANDARD
    In time, expect an eventual refusal by Eastern producing nations to accept USTreasury Bills in payment for trade. The United States Govt cannot continue on numerous glaring fronts of gross negligence and major violations. These violations have prompted the BRICS & Alliance nations to hasten their development of diverse non-USD platforms toward the goal of displacing the USDollar while at the same time to take steps toward the return of the Gold Standard.


    The New Scheiss Dollar will arrive in order to assure continued import supply to the USEconomy. It will be given a 30% devaluation out of the gate, then many more devaluations of similar variety. The New Dollar will fail all foreign and Eastern scrutiny. The USGovt will be forced to react to USTBill rejection at the ports.

    The US must accommodate with the New Scheiss Dollar in order to assure import supply, and to alleviate the many stalemates to come. The United States finds itself on the slippery slope that leads to the Third World, a Jackass forecast that has been presented since Lehman fell (better described as killed by JPM and GSax). The only apparent alternative is for the United States Govt to lease a large amount of gold bullion (like 10,000 tons) from China in order to properly launch a gold-backed currency. Doing so would open the gates for a generation of commercial colonization, but actual progress in returning capitalism to the United States.


    Any new currency, even with gold backing, would be subjected to a series of devaluations due to the enormous trade deficit. The result would be heavy powerful painful price inflation from the import front. The effect would be to reverse a generation of exported inflation by the United States. The entire USEconomy would go into a downward spiral with higher prices, supply shortages, and social disorder.

    However, the rising prices would come from the currency crisis, and not so much from the hyper monetary inflation. That flood of $trillions has been effectively firewalled off. During the crisis that comes, the gold price will find its true proper value between $5000 and $10,000 per ounce.

    Then later, it goes higher, as it seeks equilibrium in a new world where gold serves as the global arbiter in trade and banking and currencies.

2017: The Year of TRUTH BOMBS — Bill Holter

Clif High: March Chaotic for Dollar & Bonds & 2017 Truth Bombs

  • Clif High: March Chaotic for Dollar & Bonds & 2017 Truth Bombs
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Internet data mining expert Clif High predicts 2017 will be a “deeply disturbing year.” High explains, “2017 will be a deeply disturbing year because the faction that won in placing Trump in power also defeated the other faction, which has been on a roll ever since the McCarthy era.  There has been push for centralization and a push for the control mechanism basically from Nazi infiltration into the United States at the end of WWII.  Tens of thousands came in and infiltrated the infrastructure of the United States.  So, we saw a push with the centralization of government, and if the Clinton faction had won, we would have seen a Hitler type of nexus where banking, political and military power would have been centrally joined. . . . That faction has been defeated, and 70 plus years of directing the global narrative is gone.  It’s crashed. . . . . We are in a narrative vacuum at the moment. . . .  I think that everyone in the United States, at a core level, will be faced with an examination of what we think is true. . . . The faction that has won is not opposed to the general population learning the truth in terms of recent history and distant history.  The Hillary Clinton group represented global warming, carbon credits, and the Trump group represents the part of the deep state that knows we have to get ready to deal with a new ice age.  So, there are all sorts of levels that are going to be broken up that we thought were true.”

    Clif High’s most recent research, which he calls “predictive linguistics,” points to a dollar crash and a bond market crash this year. High contends, “The data sets have this period from March to May being politically and economically chaotic in terms of the language.  We have had stuff about bonds for months, about how the bonds are just going to be vomited out of institutions for poor performance and for basically a drag on them.  They are going to want to get rid of the bonds. . . . We have seen for years it would be coming out of Europe before it hits the U.S.  It’s all going to spring from the Italian banks.”

    So, what happened to the U.S. dollar with a crashing bond market? High says, “The situation looks so dire to the central banks that their response will be rolled out in June.  It will be a response building up for three or four months and political pressure put on them, and that’s why we get the hyperinflation.  It’s because the central bank will be caught between a rock and a hard place.  They will swamp the bond vigilantes and produce a huge amount of quantitative easing.  That’s the approach our data suggests they take, and that will set us up for problems this fall.”

    An even bigger worry is the stock market and who exactly owns your stocks. High says, “The markets are going to present a very giant problem that I do not know if we will have the political will to tackle this year. . . . At some point, the faction that won will address the fraud within the markets themselves. . . . . Every day we trade nine times the amount of stock that exists on the planet.  We have super infinitely hypothecated all of this, and no one knows who owns anything.”  Because of this coming chaos in the markets, High says, “Bitcoin, gold and, above all, silver are going way up in value.”

    There will also be a big revelation that will be revealed about Antarctica in terms of history, civilization, raw materials and ancient technology that has been kept secret by the powers that have just been defeated.

John Williams: Dollar Faces Death Knell. FedRes Will Be Forced to Print & Kill Dollar

  • John Williams: Dollar Faces Death Knell. FedRes Will Be Forced to Print & Kill Dollar
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  (Early Sunday Release)
    Economist John Williams warned last year the U.S. economy never really recovered, and it was going to turn down again. That downturn happened Friday when the latest GDP figures came in below 2% growth in the fourth quarter of 2016. Williams says the economy “contracted,” and he contends it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Williams explains, “I think there is reason for optimism in terms of the economy down the road. The problem is irrespective of who is president. When you introduce new policies, it takes about nine months to a year before we see the impact. So, the impact of all the happy things that are happening now won’t start to surface until 2018 barring other complications.  I expect you to see a pickup in the economy then. Unfortunately, we are still in an economy that is turning down. You are going to see that in the reporting in the next several months. We never really recovered from the economic collapse going into 2009. There was a little bit of a rebound, and we started to see the economy turn down again in 2014. If you look at the underlying series such as industrial production, freight indices and petroleum consumption, there has been no recovery. We are turning down again. This is the longest and deepest economic contraction since the Great Depression.”

    On rising interest rates, Williams predicts, “I think the Fed is going to suppress rates. Unfortunately, the bad economy we have now will be at least the better part of 2017. As the economy weakens, that puts renewed stress on the banking system. The Fed is going to be forced back to accommodating the solvency of the banking system. The Fed will be moving back towards the quantitative easing (money printing) that it had before. They have to save that banking system as they did back in 2008 . . . As they do that, it will kill the dollar. . . . There is hope for the economy, but we have a very difficult year ahead.”

    Williams goes on to say, “There are two big problems. The Fed still doesn’t have control of the system, and I think they are going to be having trouble with the banks. They are going to move back to quantitative easing (money printing) that will hit the dollar hard. That, by itself, would tend to put upside pressure on rates. The Fed can intervene for the banking system, but it’s not going to be good for the financial markets. The second element, which is also very bad for the dollar, is that in the initial phases of the Trump stimulus, you are also going to see some increase in the near term budget deficit. Once you are down the road, and you have a stronger economy and you have greater revenues coming in with taxes and greater profits, that will help lessen the deficit. The global currency markets will, once again, look at the long term solvency of the United States, and in that area, you are going to have serious issues as you did in August of 2011. As the markets focus on the long term solvency of the U.S. government, that is a very bad circumstance for the dollar.”

    If they don’t do that, Williams says, “We are facing a terrible crisis. . . . In terms of the Fed (getting control) and the long term solvency issues, these are death knells for the dollar. Unless those are addressed, you are going to see massive selling of the dollar, a debasement of the dollar and high inflation that will lead you into hyperinflation. That’s what comes into play. Prior to this administration, I would have given the chances of avoiding that as nil, but with this administration, I have some hope here.”

Trump Takes The Final Currency War Thermonuclear, Puts Gold Cartel On Notice!

  • Trump Takes The Final Currency War Thermonuclear, Puts Gold Cartel On Notice!
    by , https://www.milesfranklin.com/
    It’s the rare day I wake up to see news so powerfully Precious Metal bullish – regarding its short and long-term implications – I can barely contain myself.  The last such event was the BrExit – which set into motion the inevitable collapse of the European Union and Euro currency as we know it.  Which, seven months later, appears more certain than ever – and perhaps, if this year’s Dutch, French, German, Italian, and Catalonian elections and legislative actions trend in the direction I anticipate, imminent.  Which I assure you, last night’s news will only hasten further.


    Moreover, it’s equally rare to see so many of my predictions borne out in real time; let alone, as today’s events were catalyzed by none other than Donald Trump himself, the most anti-establishment politician ever elected to a major Western political office.  To that end, I have written more of Donald Trump than any single person in my five-and-a-half years at Miles Franklin – who last night, confirmed why back in September I predicted a Trump victory would be the political, economic, and monetary equivalent of a “BrExit times ten.”  To the point that, at one of his rallies mere weeks before the election, he actually utilized that very term.

    In fact, in the past week alone, I vehemently espoused my views of why his Presidency, as initially opined in “BrExit times ten,” would be the best imaginable scenario for Precious Metal investors.   First, I taped the “Death of Trump-Flation” Audioblog on Wednesday – discussing my belief that few of his campaign promises were politically and economically viable; and fewer still, a net positive for America in the first place.  Which in reality, was a “sequel” of the “turning on Trump” Audioblog I taped in November, mere days after the election.  When, in the afterglow of having successfully avoided the election of the Wicked Witch of the West(ern Hemisphere) as President, I focused on the economic reality of what a Trump Presidency actually meant.

    Thus, when Trump “shocked the world” last night by claiming the dollar is “too strong”; and to boot, slamming the Republicans’ “border adjustment tax” proposal, in lieu of the hard-coated import tariffs he favors, he for all intents and purposes took the aforementioned “final currency war” thermonuclear; in the process, putting the gold Cartel on notice that his policies will unquestionably yield a dramatic surge in physical Precious Metal demand – particularly, here in America, where even the most die-hard, Keynesian-brainwashed investors will be forced to realize the dollar’s purchasing power is about  to be significantly devalued.  Not that it hasn’t already, of course.  However, in the past, such inflation occurred in a more “frog in a boiling pot” fashion, as markets were manipulated to deflect attention from the Fed’s dollar-destroying policies, whilst the “strong dollar policy” and other anti-gold propaganda was relentlessly spewed by the cast of Atlas Shrugged cartoon characters running the government, Central banks, and major financial institutions to keep investors away from the “barbarous relic” that is gold.

    Well, care of the “loose cannon” himself, the gold Cartel – and the entire world political, financial, and monetary order – has been “put on notice” that the U.S. no longer intends to even pretend it has a “strong dollar policy”; and to the contrary, may well devolve into the same, overt currency depreciation policies made famous by the Japanese; Europeans; Chinese; and heck, every Central bank.  This, at a time when the global “war on cash” is exploding; and the inexorable Bitcoin emergence is making a clear statement that the world’s populace no longer believes “money” is what it once was.  In other words, as I wrote last week, the death throes of “money” are becoming eminently visible – making it more and more likely that the inevitable “run” from worthless fiat; and into “priceless” Precious Metals”; is rapidly approaching – like a runaway train, careening down an icy hill with no breaks.

Lior Gantz: Financial Derivatives War Could Bring Down Global Economy. Grave Danger Elite Bankers Might Make Trump Fail

  • Lior Gantz: Financial Derivatives War Could Bring Down Global Economy. Grave Danger Elite Bankers Might Make Trump Fail
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Financial expert Lior Gantz says there is good news and bad news for the economy with the election of Donald Trump. Gantz explains, “If he changes the equation, it could cause a lot of inflation in the U.S.  U.S. banks are so liquid and have so much excess cash because of TARP programs and QE programs that this could prompt them to start lending, and lend to the wrong people.  It could prompt the government to start issuing increased food stamps, universal unemployment checks and all kinds of stuff that can create large inflation in the U.S.  So, that is one side that is problematic.  The other side is very spectacular for the U.S. economy because Trump is doing a lot of things that should have been done years ago:  deregulation, cutting back on taxes, cutting the red tape and making sure that businesses are more comfortable with opening new branches in the U.S.  The best indicator of this is the Russell 2000 index that is up much more than the Dow because the small cap companies are mostly based in the U.S., and the large cap companies are international.”


    Gantz warns that problems could be caused by central banks either by accident or on purpose. Gantz, who was a money manager for the wealthy, says, “I would even say that there is real grave danger that the government or the elite banking system will create problems.  I will even say they might even make Trump fail.  They might do something to his disadvantage on purpose because he’s not mainstream, because he’s not them.  He came out of nowhere, and he was not backed like Hillary.  That is also baked in the cake, and it is what we call a black swan.”

    So, if push comes to shove, will the global elite allow deflation or will they trip the inflation button? Gantz, who specializes in resource stocks, says, “They will trip the inflation button.  They will not allow deflation to happen in the U.S., and I will tell you why.  They feel like they are invincible, and they can’t admit failure.  They will never admit, hey, we have done this wrong.  QE programs were wrong.  Negative interest rates were wrong.  They will not come out and say it.  They will do whatever it takes to play their end game.  They honestly don’t care about the average person.  That’s the last thing on their mind.  They care about their lifestyle and the way they live life on the toil, sweat and energy of the people who really create the economy and innovation.”

    Gantz also warns of a possible derivative war between top bankers that could bring the global economy down. Gantz contends, “Once somebody begins to change the way they look at derivatives, and start using derivatives as a weapon . . .  they’re going to fight between each other.  These are nasty people that all they care about is what they make in cold hard cash to take home.  They really could start a derivative war that would not be beneficial for anyone.  It would be more violent than an orchestrated derivative explosion that I really don’t think is possible.  The derivative market is so big that it is out of the control of anybody.”

2017 Predictions on Trump, Gold, Silver, Housing, Stocks, Bonds & Antarctica: Clif High

  • 2017 Predictions on Trump, Gold, Silver, Housing, Stocks, Bonds & Antarctica: Clif High 
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Internet data mining expert Clif High says forget about the rumors and predictions of Donald Trump being blocked from taking office. High says Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President and explains, “I don’t have any data that says, hard stop, Trump is assassinated.  I don’t have that . . . . I am willing to back my data with real money, an ounce of silver, and I have an ounce of silver, and I would be willing to bet the inauguration part goes through smoothly given the emotional data sets we have now.”

    High, who calls what he does “Predictive Linguistics,” mines the internet and collects billions of data points to produce forecasts of the future.  On the financial markets, High simply says, “We’re screwed. . . . The equity markets in our data sets are highly manipulated.  So, if you ask will there be a crash?  I say there already is a crash.  Everybody that is not part of the financial system at the top end is currently living in a depression, and the media does not acknowledge this.”

    On the U.S. dollar and its purchasing power, High predicts, “The purchasing power is going to be eroded away fairly quickly. I suspect the erosion (of the U.S. dollar) is going to start in March or so. . . . The turning point for the Trump euphoria will hit at the end of February and carry on through March and April.  There will probably be people that will define this as a crash. . . . In our data sets, around March and April, the erosion of the dollar continues . . . The Fed, in a laggardly way, starts to chase interest rates. . . . We may jump to 9% or 10% interest rates as quickly as March or April.”

    On Real Estate prices, High’s data tells him the entire market will eventually “fall by 90%.” High explains, “The language is about the high end crashing first, and then, it meets the middle tier, and then they crash to meet the lower tier.  So, it’s not going to be the high end coming down and then stabilizing.  We are seeing a generalized property price crash that is really just going to coincide with the inability of the banks to circulate enough money and create enough debt to blow the balloon up again.  Real estate will drop for what I am calling a credit freeze for lack of a better word.”

    On Gold and Silver and Bitcoin, High says they will start moving up at the beginning of the New Year, and Obama will see the beginnings of a market crash before he leaves office. High contends, “Our data sets show that there is a lot of upward pressure on Gold and Silver and Bitcoin as the currencies go into a crisis mode. That basically is already happening.”

    High’s data is pointing to Silver and Gold prices starting to takeoff in early 2017. High says data is showing a possible “$600 per ounce price for Silver” at some point.  High says before that happens, he sees “$125 per ounce” price for Silver on up to “$345 per ounce.”  High’s data also repeatedly says the “gold price per ounce will eventually be equal to the Dow.”

It’s The Dollar, Stupid!

The_Death_of_King_Dollar

  • It’s The Dollar, Stupid!  
    by Paul Brodsky via Macro-Allocation.com, http://www.zerohedge.com/
    We think the markets have it fundamentally wrong. US investors are anticipating a cyclical shift towards economic expansion via new tax incentives, business de-regulation and Keynesian government spending that promise to increase output, demand and asset prices. However, there is a far more influential driver of future asset prices – a structural shift that has begun but has yet to be acknowledged by economic and political authorities, and, judging by financial asset markets, by most investors. We expect weak equity markets and a strong treasury market beginning in 2017.


    It’s the Dollar, Stupid.
    The financial model used by advanced economies since 1971 is quickly losing its ability to support economic growth and rising asset prices.1 Western economic policy, which had previously relied heavily on credit creation from 1971 to 2008, was replaced in 2009 by monetary policy that relied heavily on base money creation through asset purchases. The structural shift in central bank focus from credit to monetary creation marked a paradigm shift in the decades-long finance-based economic model – from the leveraging phase to the de-leveraging phase.

    We expect debt deflation coincident with central bank monetary inflation, which would offset the deflation…on paper (like feet in the oven, head in the freezer producing a reasonable average). Before this occurs, we expect a financial or economic event that focuses public attention on the leverage problem.

    We expect global monetary authorities to protect the dollar as long as they can and we expect them to fail. Stocks and bonds will react violently; stocks and weak credits falling, treasuries prices rising (at first). That failure will lead to hyperinflation – not driven by demand, but rather by central bank money printing. A new global monetary understanding will then emerge.

    We expect weak equities and a strong treasury market in 2017, as they begin to discount this fundamental structural shift.
