Ron Paul: “Fake News” & Assault on Free Speech

  • Published on Jan 18, 2017
    The former Congressman joins us to sound the alarm there’s an assault on our First Amendment rights. The Ron Paul Institute was put on the “red-flag” list of Russian propaganda outlets. The establishment is trying to discredit those who hold dissenting opinions, Dr. Paul says. But is only our liberty of free speech under attack? Dr. Paul warns, “If this ongoing assault on free speech succeeds, then all of our liberties are endangered.”

Jim Rickards: The Fed’s “Nuclear Option”: $4,900 Gold, $100 Silver, $200 Oil

Remember the Golden Rule: "He who has the gold Rules!"

Remember the Golden Rule: “He who has the gold Rules!”

  • The Fed’s “Nuclear Option”: $4,900 Gold, $100 Silver, $200 Oil
    by Chris Campbell, Jan 17, 2017, https://lfb.org/
    “The final weapon in the Fed’s arsenal,” Jim Rickards, author of The Road to Ruin: The Global Elites’ Secret Plan For the Next Financial Crisis, wrote this week, “is the financial equivalent of nuclear war.”

    The Fed’s “nuclear option,” Rickards warns, is… wait for it… gold.

    We bring this up today because this nuclear option could have a yuge (sometimes spelled “yooge”) impact on the price of not only the midas metal (see below), but of silver ($100) and oil ($200), too. And we want you to have plenty of time to ready yourself.
    ….
    7 Federal Reserve Tools and Why They’re All Flawed
    Jim Rickards
    In recent decades, the Fed has engaged in a series of policy interventions and market manipulations that have paradoxically left it more powerful even as those interventions left a trail of crashes, collapses and calamities.

    The following is a survey of seven Federal Reserve tools in the Fed toolkit to stimulate the economy if recession or deflation gains the upper hand and why their toolkit is flawed.

    Helicopter Money
    The image of the Fed printing paper money, and dumping it from helicopters to consumers waiting below who scoop it up and start spending is a popular, but not very informative way to describe helicopter money. In reality, helicopter money is the coordination of fiscal policy and monetary policy in a way designed to provide stimulus to a weak economy and to fight deflation.

    The Nuclear Option — Gold
    The final weapon in the Fed’s arsenal is the financial equivalent of nuclear war. The Fed could instantly create inflation and achieve nominal if not real growth by massively devaluing the dollar when measured as a unit of gold.

    This was last done in 1933–34 and was highly successful. Stocks rallied and commodity prices boomed in the middle of the Great Depression (1929–1940). This boom was not sustained because the Fed and Treasury prematurely tightened monetary policy and fiscal policy in 1937, which put the U.S. economy back into a severe technical recession from 1937–1938.

    The Fed could use this nuclear option by coordinating with the Treasury to make a two-way market in gold using printed money. This would work exactly like quantitative easing, except the Fed would buy or sell gold instead of Treasury bonds.

    The Fed would set an arbitrarily high fixed price for gold such as $5,000 per ounce. The Fed would make that price stick by offering to buy gold from any seller at $4,900 per ounce and selling gold to the market at $5,100 per ounce. This amounts to a 4% band or spread around the target price, a classic pegging technique.

    Gold could be removed from or added to the U.S. hoard at West Point, NY, and money would be created by or destroyed by the Fed in order to make the target price stick.

    If, for example, the price of gold was $1,300 per ounce before the operation, the effect would be to devalue the dollar from 1/1,300th of an ounce of gold to 1/5000th of an ounce of gold, a 75% devaluation of the dollar. This devaluation would not take place in isolation.

    A 75% dollar devaluation in gold would signal devaluation in all other goods and services and result in $100 per ounce silver, $200 per barrel oil, etc.

    This is obviously an extreme measure and would only be used in the face of strong persistent deflation. Yet, the fact that that technique exists and has been used in the past is one reason to conclude that deflation will not in fact persist beyond certain limits because the Fed and Treasury have the ability to stop it as they did in 1933.

Nomi Prins: Financial Crash Possible in Last Quarter of 2017

  • Nomi Prins: Financial Crash Possible in Last Quarter of 2017
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Best-selling author Nomi Prins says two of the big wild cards are Donald Trump and Europe. Prins explains, “The biggest wild card is a combination. Trump is a wild card, but so is Europe. Right now, the political lens goes over to Europe. It’s caught between its old and potentially new structure and potential new political leadership. I think that is a major wild card now. That snakes through Russia, and that snakes through Eurasia relationships, and that relates back to Trump. The wild card is the linkages among those things.”


    Prins, who is a former top Wall Street banker, also thinks it’s hard to define the bad guys and the good guys. Prins contends, “From an economic standpoint, everyone has side deals. So, there is no positive or negative economy. . . . All countries do good things, and all countries do bad things. What is happening right now is all of the alignments between countries have been changing. . . . The reality is there are going to be a lot of things renegotiated, and it’s not just Trump and the U.S. doing the renegotiating. All the other countries are negotiating as well. If there is enough antagonism with how Trump is going to renegotiate those agreements . . . that could limit trade into the U.S., and that could limit our bargaining power. . . . That is all in flux this year.”

    Prins correctly predicted no financial crash for 2016. Prins’ upcoming book is titled “Artisans of Money.” It is all about central bank money creation. What does Prins say about this year? Prins predicts, “In 2016, I pegged the non-crash. . . . Central bankers were finding new ways to extend their money creation policies. That is what kept the markets up. There was a separate bid on the markets after Trump was elected. It was on the expectation that he would be good for growth, that he would be good for infrastructure and that he would create jobs. I do think there is a little juice in the central banks. I keep thinking there shouldn’t be, but they keep surprising all of us with their ability to boost the markets. They have artificially stimulated so many different asset bubbles, whether it’s debt, which is epic, or stock markets, many of which are at historic highs. If we have a crash, it will be in the second half of 2017. The promises, the rate hikes, the dollar being high could collapse into the realities of the stability and this artificialness. I am not sure about a crash this year, but if we see a big decline, it will be in the last quarter.”

    On the U.S. dollar, Prins says, “I think with the expectation of things going well, the dollar will be keeping a bit of a bid. It will be within a range but staying fairly up. I think the dollar will turn around and weaken in the second half of the year. . . .That’s why, in the last half of the year, gold will catch more of a bid.” (Meaning prices for gold will rise according to Prins.)

56 Years Ago Today, Eisenhower Warned Americans Of “The Unwarranted Influence” Of The Deep State

  • 56 Years Ago Today, Eisenhower Warned Americans Of “The Unwarranted Influence” Of The Deep State 
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com, 17 Jan 2017
    In his farewell address to the nation 56 years ago, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the American people for the first time to keep a careful eye on what he called the “military-industrial complex” that had developed in the post-World War II years. Fiscally conservative Eisenhower had been concerned about the growing size and cost of the American defense establishment since he became president in 1953, and as History.com notes, in his last presidential address to the American people, he expressed those concerns in terms that shocked many of his listeners.

    Eisenhower began by describing the changing nature of the American defense establishment since World War II. No longer could the U.S. afford the “emergency improvisation” that characterized its preparations for war against Germany and Japan. Instead, the United States was “compelled to create a permanent armaments industry” and a huge military force. He admitted that the Cold War made clear the “imperative need for this development,” but he was gravely concerned about “the acquisition of unwarranted influence…by the military-industrial complex.” In particular, he asked the American people to guard against the “danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.”

    Eisenhower’s blunt language stunned some of his supporters.
    They believed that the man who led the country to victory in Europe in World War II and guided the nation through some of the darkest moments of the Cold War was too negative toward the military-industrial complex that was the backbone of America’s defense. For most listeners, however, it seemed clear that Eisenhower was merely stating the obvious. World War II and the ensuing Cold War resulted in the development of a large and powerful defense establishment.
    Necessary though that development might be, Eisenhower warned, this new military-industrial complex could weaken or destroy the very institutions and principles it was designed to protect.

Trump Takes on the US ‘Deep State’

Theodore_Roosevelt-Invisible_secret_government_no_allegiance_no_responsibility_to_people

http://www.infowars.com/

  • US “Deep State” = Western Illuminati.
  • Trump Takes on the US ‘Deep State’
    by Michael S. McKenna, Editor / Saxo Bank, https://www.tradingfloor.com/
    * Donald Trump engages in war of words with outgoing CIA head
    * Trump policies on trade, foreign policy depart from longstanding norms
    * Past events point to policymaking powers beyond elected officials
    * Russian relations a major sticking point between Trump, much of gov’t
    * Aggressive stance towards China could result in enormous market volatility

    By Michael McKenna
    Last Sunday, US president-elect Donald Trump launched one of his now-trademark series of broadsides against the CIA, claiming that the latest series of leaks concerning his alleged misuse of a Moscow hotel suite previously occupied by president Barack Obama was a “complete fraud”.

    Trump then compared the US intelligence regime to Nazi Germany in a tweet that called the leak, which alleged various colourful activities involving prostitutes, “fake news […] one last shot at me”.

    The incoming president had already been warned against taking on the CIA by no less than Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who said on January 2 that Trump was being “really dumb” by taking on the CIA, adding that “you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you”.

    Last Sunday, outgoing CIA director John Brennan told press that he took “great umbrage” at Trump’s words, noting that Trump, who has repeatedly stated his intention to improve ties between the US and Russia, “has to understand that absolving Russia of various actions that it’s taken in the past number of years is a road that he, I think, needs to be very, very careful about moving down”.

    Given that Trump’s plans regarding Russia have been opposed by Democrats, Republicans, and the intelligence community alike, his actions have been interpreted as an assault on what some term “the deep state,” or the collection of policymakers (both elected and not) that guide US policy in certain long-term directions.

    According to Saxo Bank head of forex strategy John J Hardy, “the deep state” is shorthand for a force within Washington that is able to guide the US’ ship of state over periods of time longer than presidential terms, and at times despite the stated intentions of elected officials.

    If Trump has indeed embroiled himself in a conflict with this entity, then, what does that mean for his policy plans and for the post-Inauguration markets?

  • The Soft Coup Collapses – CIA Bluffing, Russia Did Not Hack, Blackmail Revealed – What Next?
    by Robert David Steele, http://www.globalresearch.ca/, 9 Jan 2017
    CIA was bluffing, produced no evidence – Russians did not “hack” the election. Is this the beginning of the end of the Deep State in the USA? Can Trump clean house & wage peace?

    Aided by enormous restraint on the part of Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, the soft coup in the USA has collapsed. Not only has the US Intelligence Community (US IC) lost all semblance of credibility with incoming President Donald Trump, but the blackmail by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham has been revealed by investigative journalist Wayne Madsen.

    Credit for the defeat of the soft coup has been earned by two persons and one group. Donald Trump earns the most credit – bringing to the matter his deep business experience and common sense, he understood that the narrative against Russia was exaggerated, fabricated, and out of context. With that foundation he was willing to listen to the second person, Michael Flynn, whose deep personal experience in the nether world of black special operations and green clandestine and covert action operations informs him in a manner few can claim.

    The group has many members, but three stand out. William Binney, the senior executive (like an admiral or general) who created the National Security Agency (NSA) capability that has been used against US politicians and also to monitor the activity of all cyber-spies, not only Russia, was the first to reveal that the leaks were coming from insiders. Ray McGovern, a retired CIA analyst and founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) has been a respected voice challenging the false assertions by the CIA against Russia. Finally Steve Pieczenik must be recognized.  A former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State who was instrumental in certifying the death of Bin Laden in 2001 and denouncing the multiple false Bin Ladens created by CIA thereafter (including the final patsy provided by Pakistan to enable a theatrical rescue that killed many US special operators for no reason other than to give Barack Obama an edge toward re-election), Pieczenik was the first to announce that a counter-coup against Hillary Clinton was being undertaken by insiders.

    I have done what I could and I am proud to stand in support of Donald Trump and against lies by the leaders of the US IC. We must be careful to not confuse the unethical leaders with the well-intentioned good people trapped in a very bad system. The leaders tried a coup and failed.

    The contributions of Julian Assange and Wikileaks cannot be over-stated. However, it must be made clear that without the work of retired intelligence professionals and ambassadors and US cyber-specialists willing to risk everything to challenge the US IC lies, the assertions of Assange with respect to sourcing would have been overwhelmed by the official narrative. The captive media in the USA – I single out the Crap News Network (CNN) – has no intelligence and no integrity. This is a case of a small band of Davids defeating an aging arrogant Goliath.

    The American people were torn between Donald Trump and fewer than 100 voices against the official narrative, and the traditional combination of spy mystique, captive (blackmailed) Senators and Representatives, and a media ecology – not only the “mainstream” media but the “progressive media” as well – all saying “how dare you not believe our spies, how dare you not agree that Russia is the main enemy, how dare you think for yourselves?”

    The declassified US IC report – notably from only three agencies rather than all seventeen – has been provided online. Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections is fourteen pages long, provides no proof, and spends thirteen of the fourteen pages focused on how successful Russia has been at ethical, legal, overt media operations. Only one page in the aggregate focuses on covert cyber operations.

Red Alert: Davos Elites Call For a Ban on Physical Cash… in the US! ‘666’ Approaching Rapidly!

https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2017/01/the-us-should-get-rid-of-cash-and-become-a-digital-economy-says-this-nobel-laureate-economist

‘666’ rapidly approaching! Click on image for article.

  • Davos Elites Call For a Ban on Physical Cash… in the US
    by Phoenix Capital…, http://www.zerohedge.com/
    Roughly two weeks ago, when writing about the cash ban in India, I stated:
    – 
    If you think the Elites aren’t watching this unfold with sheer delight you’re mistaken. Globally a war on cash has been declared. And India has now proved that it can be done with little consequence. The fact it INCREASE tax hauls (something every Government on the planet wants) is just icing on the cake.
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-05/elites-dream-cash-ban-now-closer-ever

    Fast forward to this week at the Davos Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland, and Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz all but said the exact same thing.

    Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already removed 86% of his country’s currency from circulation in an attempt to curb tax evasion, tackle corruption and shut down the shadow economy.

    Should the US follow suit?

    Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winning economist, thinks so. Phasing out currency and moving towards a digital economy would
    , over the long term, have “benefits that outweigh the cost,” the Columbia University professor said on day one of the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos…

    “I believe very strongly that countries like the United States could and should move to a digital currency,” he said,
    “so that you would have the ability to trace this kind of corruption. There are important issues of privacy, cyber-security, but it would certainly have big advantages.”
    https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2017/01/the-us-should-get-rid-of-cash-and-become-a-digital-economy-says-this-nobel-laureate-economist

    Again… the War on Cash is not slowing down. India effectively removed 86% of the physical cash in circulation and no one was forced to resign. Put simply, India signaled to the global elites that you can implement a near complete ban on physical cash, and there are no real consequences as far as political aspirations.

    We believe that the Elites will be pushing for this policy to hit the US. If you think this is impossible consider that Stiglitz openly called for the US to ban cash in the article above. Indeed, we’ve uncovered a secret document outlining how the Fed plans to ban physical cash and incinerate savings in the coming months.
