Jim Rogers Reiterates His Call For A Crash Of Epic Proportions

Jim-Rogers-Predicts-Trillion-Dollar-Biblical-Crash-2

  • Jim Rogers Reiterates His Call For A Crash Of Epic Proportions
    by 
    This past May, Rogers had such a dismal outlook that he warned “A $68 trillion ‘Biblical’ collapse is poised to wipe out millions of Americans.” Since then, the Dow has hit record highs above 20,000 and many other fragile bubbles continue to expand.

    And just this week, Jim did a podcast interview with Erik Townsend and Patrick Ceresna on their show called “Macro Voices” in which he was questioned on a variety of topics. He didn’t contradict any of his previous statements, though he certainly had opportunities to do so.

    Most notably, Rogers offered another warning statement; “Get prepared,” he went on “because we’re going to have the worst economic problems in your lifetime and a lot of people are going to disappear.”

    Jim went on to reference the demise of both Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers which were around for 90 years and over 150 years years respectively. Both despite surviving two World Wars, still disappeared overnight while days before, Jim Cramer, on CNBC, admonished that Bear Stearns was a buy at $62… six days later it was bought out by JP Morgan for $2 a share.

Bix Weir: Trump Fights to Takedown Bad Guys

  • Bix Weir: Trump Fights to Takedown Bad Guys
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    According to precious metals and financial expert Bix Weir, what’s going on in Washington now is simply a struggle for control between good and evil. Weir explains, “The left is going nuts.  They say they are not violent, but they are causing all these riots and protests everywhere.  I am convinced that this takedown of the bad guys is going to get a lot uglier.  It will get uglier because the left leaning Obama people have been given so many rights that are not in the Constitution and are not anywhere in a capitalistic society.  It’s more towards socialism, and when you try to take away the rights given to socialists, they get armed.  They go into the streets.”


    Weir says Trump is attacking illegal immigration and voter fraud that are the basis of Democrat power. Weir contends, “Basically, the immigration issue and voting issue is all an attack on free will, and it’s a move towards socialism.  They know if they open the borders, they know they are going to get a lot of people coming in who will vote Democrat and vote for the free things they get from society.  Ron Paul has some great ideas about how to stop this, and it’s stop giving away the free stuff.”

    Weir says all the political and civil unrest are symptoms of an economic system on the edge of a giant reset. Weir says when the economic reset comes, it will come from trillions of dollars in unbacked derivatives.  Weir contends, “It will destroy all the banks . . . all the banks go when the derivative implosion happens.  That has always been sort of the home built nuclear bomb in the financial system—the derivative market.  Hundreds of trillions of derivatives that are so dependent on third parties staying in business. . . . Once one large derivative holder goes, they all go.”

    Weir thinks Trump knows a crash is coming and is getting ready. Weir says, “Trump has the keys to ending this market rigging game.  Once you end the market rigging game, then you can’t support the stock market, and everything has to go to its true fair market value with real trades and no more derivatives.  Trump can do it, but it’s not just Trump.  It’s also the people behind Trump.  I call them the good guys.  It’s people in the Pentagon, people in the military and patriots.  All this goes back to what does Trump want to do.  Do they want to fix things with the bubbles still there and with the Fed still printing money?  Or, does he really want to fix it?  Which means you crash the system first, and then you rebuild.  I think it’s the latter.  I think he’s trying to get people in place, and he will crash the system and then rebuild.”

    So, what would Weir sell, and what would he be buying? Weir says, “On the sell side, I’d sell anything that has a third party between you and your asset.  That could be stocks and bonds.  On the buy side, I’d buy Bitcoin with both feet . . . buy a lot of silver, as much silver as you can . . . and buy gold, as well.

Charles Nenner 2017 Prediction: Global War Cycle Coming into Danger Zone

  • Charles Nenner 2017 Prediction: Global War Cycle Coming into Danger Zone
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Renowned financial and geopolitical analyst Charles Nenner correctly predicted there would be no market crash in 2016. 2017 is going to be a very different story.  Nenner explains, “There are going to be some serious corrections and some bounces.  I don’t thing we are going anywhere until the fall of 2017 when the whole bottom is going to fall out.  If you are a very good stock picker, you’ll be okay, but I am talking about the indices (overall financial markets).  It continues to be dangerous, and most of the good news is already in this rally.  The hope that Trump will do the right thing is still there, but it will take too long.  People will realize it is not going to happen tomorrow, and they will get disappointed.  So, I am still not very much into the stock market.  I don’t think there is much to gain over there.  I have been saying that for the next couple of years, try not to lose your money.  That’s the major thing you should be doing.”


    On the election of Donald Trump, Nenner says, “More than half of Americans supported Trump, but everybody is afraid to say so. I always thought Trump would change the whole thing.   I think things will also change in the Middle East.  I do think he much better understands Putin than Obama and the Democrats.  I think he will be tough, and his toughness may lead to a better situation with world peace, although the cycles are against him.  I actually feel sorry for him because if this market crashes, then maybe he can say, like Obama, it was Bush who did it.  He might be able to say it’s only been one year as President, and it’s Obama’s fault.  Maybe that’s how he can get out of it.  I think it was Obama that said for eight years it was Bush’s fault.”

    On his big prediction of a coming war cycle, Nenner says, “I have always said I feel sorry for whoever is going to President now because we have negative cycles, and things usually don’t work out very well. I think the United States will be much better off with a different wind blowing in Congress and in the White House.”

    The most disturbing thing Nenner sees coming is a major world war on the scale of WWI and WWII. Nenner explains, “In my research of financial markets, we also did research on war cycles.  It’s about to flare up everywhere.  If the stock market is close to a top, some stocks are just tanking and others still hold up.  What you see here right now is some countries are just tanking, and the rest are still holding up, meaning we are forming a top.  This means the cycle is coming into the danger zone.  I still see a big problem with China and Japan.  We also have problems with Chinese islands (in the South China Sea).  If this continues, it’s going to come from there.  If you go back a hundred years ago, a big war started (WWI).  A hundred years before that it was Napoleon.  Big wars always start in the second decade of a new era. . . . I still see there are problems with war everywhere . . . . Everything is on the edge, and it can ignite at any minute.  If terrorists could, they would use much larger weapons, and if they do, everybody is going to have to wake up.  Then you will have a major war on your hands.”

    In closing, Nenner says, “I think it is a good idea to own some physical gold and silver.”

Bill Holter: In 2017 Trump will be Presiding Over a Bankruptcy

  • Bill Holter: In 2017 Trump will be Presiding Over a Bankruptcy
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com(Early Sunday Release 1.9.17)
    Financial writer Bill Holter says 2017 will be “the year of the Truth Bomb.” Holter explains, “I have been talking about ‘Truth Bombs’ for about a year and a half. I think what is going to happen in 2017 is that this hologram we’ve been living in, the curtain is going to be pulled back. . . . I want to see the truth come out, and that’s why we do what we do.”

    One of the big truths that will explode is about the economy, and this will be one of Trump’s biggest problems. Holter goes on to say, “Trump is a smart guy, and he understands that really what he’s going to be doing is presiding over a bankruptcy. That’s what his main job is going to be, and that’s reorganizing this country.”

    What will the end of 2017 look like? Holter says, “I don’t think it will even resemble what today looks like. I think you may see the financial system come down, and it may be by the end of the year that the system is coming back up or coming back on line. We are going to have a bank holiday. We are going to have to have some sort of reset. The reset will include a bank holiday. Your ATM won’t work. Your credit cards won’t work. Distribution is going to fail. It’s all about credit. Everything financial and everything economic relies on credit. I believe that we are going to have a credit crisis this year where credit becomes very scarce or actually dries up completely. In that scenario, it is not good. You are talking about distribution breaking down and people going hungry, riots, martial law, cross default from country to country to country to country, bank to bank to bank and broker to broker to broker. Everything runs and lives on credit, and without credit, it’s almost like caveman days.”

The “Upcoming, Cataclysmic, Financial Big Bang To End All Big Bangs”- Upgraded From Inevitable To Imminent?

Global_financial_crisis

  • The “Upcoming, Cataclysmic, Financial Big Bang To End All Big Bangs”-Upgraded From Inevitable To Imminent? 
    by , https://www.milesfranklin.com/
    Before the U.S. has even opened for 2017 business, global markets have taken a dramatic step towards implosion – as the “year of monetary revolution” commences.  Yes, the gold Cartel started the year as they start nearly every day; i.e., with a “Sunday Night Sentiment” raid, for the 170th time in the past 178 weekends (albeit, on a Monday due to the holiday); and subsequently, when gold had the nerve to rebound, a “2:15 AM” attack for the 761st time in the past 876 trading days, to make sure the year “starts right.”

    However, with each passing day of gargantuan East/West physical premium differentials the odds of the Cartel’s inevitable implosion grow larger – particularly in light of the political, economic, social, and monetary carnage being wrought, at an increasingly parabolic rate by the “powers that be” known as governments, Central banks, and their Wall Street and corporate partners-in-crime” – as history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi scheme, races through its cancerous, terminal phase.  And nowhere is such self-destruction more evident than in the United States of Exceptionalism, where Barack Obama’s outgoing failure of an Administration is not only doing everything in its power to sabotage Donald Trump’s incoming Administration – but objectively speaking, catalyze World War III!

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.

Federal Reserve Initiates End Game As Trump Heads To White House

Carroll_Quigley_Tragedy_n_Hope2

  • Federal Reserve Initiates End Game As Trump Heads To White House 
    by Brandon Smith, http://www.alt-market.com/
    For years, alternative economic analysts have been warning that the “miraculous” rise in U.S. stock markets has been the symptom of wider central bank intervention and that this will result in dire future consequences. We have heard endless lies and rationalizations as to why this could not be so, and why the U.S. “recovery” is real.  At the beginning of 2016, the former head of the Dallas branch of the Federal Reserve crushed all the skeptics and vindicated our position in an interview with CNBC where he stated:

    “What the Fed did — and I was part of that group — is we front-loaded a tremendous market rally, starting in 2009. It’s sort of what I call the “reverse Whimpy factor” — give me two hamburgers today for one tomorrow. I’m not surprised that almost every index you can look at … was down significantly.” [Referring to the results in the stock market after the Fed raised rates in December.]

    Fisher continued his warning (though his predictions in my view are wildly conservative or deliberately muted):

    “…I was warning my colleagues, “Don’t go wobbly if we have a 10-20 percent correction at some point. … Everybody you talk to … has been warning that these markets are heavily priced.”

    Here is the issue stocks are a mostly meaningless factor when considering the economic health of a nation. Equities are a casino based on nothing but the luck of the draw when it comes to news headlines, central banker statements and algorithmic computers. Today, as Fischer openly admitted, stocks are a purely manipulated indicator representing nothing but the amount of stimulus central banks are willing to pour into them through various channels.

    Even with the incredible monetary support pooled together by international financiers, returns on equities investments continue to remain mostly flat.  It would seem that the propping up of indexes like the Dow has been only for the sake of keeping up appearances. For many people, revenue is barely being generated.

    Unfortunately, the majority of Americans do not care to educate themselves on the finer points of finance. Their only relation to the health of the economy is their daily glance at the Dow. If it is green, or at all time highs, they assume that all is well, even if their gut is telling them something is not quite right.

    The elites that stand at the helm of the Federal Reserve understand this dynamic very well. They are not stupid. They know that the whole of the global economy could be in a shambles but as long as stocks remain positive the masses will continue to ignore reality until the flames of destabilization are at their very doorsteps.

    With this fact in mind one might think that the Fed would consider it in their best interest to keep stimulus measures operating indefinitely; but that is not what they are doing.

    In fact, the Fed along with other central banks like the ECB has been slowly peeling back pillars of support from markets that have been in place since 2008-2009 and leaving the system open to a crisis event that should have been dealt with years ago. I examined this process of deliberate destabilization in my article ‘The Global Economic Reset Has Begun.’

Trump Can’t Stop It: “The People Who Have Been Orchestrating The Collapse Have Not Halted Their Agendas”

Statue_of_Liberty_overwhelmed_by_Tsunami_waves1

  • Trump Can’t Stop It: “The People Who Have Been Orchestrating The Collapse Have Not Halted Their Agendas”  
    by Jeremiah Johnson, SHTFplan.com 
    There are some very somber, pragmatic articles circulating as of late that present a true snapshot of the difficulties the U.S. faces after eight years of Obama.  One of these articles is a well-written, thought-provoking piece by Susan Duclos of All News Pipeline, entitled We are Facing the Most Important Battle of All at the Most Dangerous Moment in History.  The piece shows what we’re up against and cautions all of us not to rely on the “magic fix” of Trump’s victory to side rail our preparations and vigilance.  Here is an excerpt from that excellent article:

    We at ANP are noting a lot of optimism from investors with stocks soaring,  to economic confidence reaching new highs, to small business owners, to household spending and even prepping has hit a “multi-year low,” all the articles I am reading are crediting the election of Donald Trump as reason for all this optimism, but as much as I hate to rain on everyone’s parade… now is the most dangerous time in history, not a time to assume just because one man was elected, all the wrongs will be made right, the failing economy will automatically just magically fix itself.”

    Susan deserves special thanks, as well as Stefan Stanford; their coverage of developments has been spot-on and unwavering in their attempts to present objective and factual reporting, while warning readers akin to modern Paul Reveres that the battle is not over by any means.  In reality, it is not even close to being over.  I recommend reading the article’s section toward the beginning under “THE ECONOMY IS COLLAPSING” paragraph introduction for statistics on where we stand economically at this moment in time.

    There was a piece released by Michael Snyder of the Economic Collapse Blog on December 8th entitled It is Like a Nuclear Bomb Went Off in the Prepping Community, another timely piece that warns of the complacency settling in now that most conservatives believe that Trump will be the vaccine for the country’s illnesses.  Here is an excerpt from that article:
