America could default on its Debts in just 8 weeks







The US government could 'run out of cash' and default in just eight WEEKS says Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin as he tells congressional leaders to raise the debt ceiling before recess... Mnuchin is telling Nancy Pelosi and Mitch MConnell that Congress should raise the debt ceiling before leaving for its August recess otherwise the U.S. could default on its debts for the first time ever. In a letter Friday to House and Senate leaders, Mnuchin says that based on updated projections, 'there is a scenario in which we run out of cash in early September, before Congress reconvenes.' Pelosi said on Thursday that she would like to complete a deal with President Donald Trump this month to raise the borrowing limit and set spending levels for the coming budget year. Wall Street continues to get fat on Main Street’s misfortunes. When the mortgage bubble popped in 2008, financiers turned to student debt, packaging and marketing loans as “Student Loan Asset Backed Securities” (SLABS). Over the last decade, as SLABS have become a $200 billion market, the total amount of debt held by American students has more than doubled, surpassing $1.47 trillion. It’s no coincidence that college costs more than twice what it did 20 years ago. Student debt is even more attractive than mortgage debt, because it can’t be forgiven or dismissed through bankruptcy, and its bearers are too young when they sign the papers to fully comprehend that they may never pay it off. Colleges have turned students into “investments” with exploitative income-sharing agreements in which the student agrees to give a percentage of their future income to the school after graduation in order to guarantee loan payback, a model uncannily similar to indentured servitude (and, perhaps unsurprisingly, developed by Milton Friedman). Debtors’ prisons are back with a vengeance, too . SWAT teams and US Marshals are arresting people over unpaid student loan debts and predatory court fee systems have widened the pool of potential “criminals” the state can count on as a renewable financial resource. Broke municipalities are so excited when private prison corporations like GEO Group come knocking that they willingly sign agreements pledging to keep the facility a certain percentage full, offering their citizens up on a silver platter to appease their new corporate overlords. While the fat cat wall street investment bankers revel in their ill gotten gains courtesy of our corrupt government , what do the youth on main street America have to look forward to? . Millennials and Generation Z are confronting an even wider gap than the previous generation between their expectations . The Shining City on a Hill unironically insists the US is, the example the rest of the world supposedly envies and wants to emulate . But in reality ,More than ever, Americans coming of age are finding it impossible to square the crippling debt, decaying infrastructure, impossible expenses, and absence of basic services that characterize their own experience with the propaganda they’ve internalized since their first day in school. And If the Market goes down, it will be to strip pensions and 401K's , certainly not the rich one percent . This was The Atlantis Report . Please Like . Share . And Subscribe .

Is The Chinese Economy on The Verge of Collapse ?




China’s economic collapse is on the way as many of the country’s biggest private companies are struggling to manage excessive debt. Corporate debt in China stood at 155 per cent of gross domestic product at the end of first quarter of 2019, much higher than other major economies. Risks of large-scale corporate defaults are mounting in China. By comparison, Japan's corporate debt level is 100 per cent of GDP and the US’ is 74 per cent, respectively. In the past decade, China's overall debt quadrupled, to around three times the value of previous year's national output. Corporate debt contributes two-thirds of the total, or more than $26 trillion dollar last year, based on the report by Bank for International Settlements. This is not a good sign to the China's economy considering the fact that companies run by the government are the main contributors of this debt. Signs of economic collapse are being portrayed by some of the private companies which have been experiencing serious difficulties lately. This first bank takeover by regulators in China in decades caused near panic that spread into the entire money markets and bonds and it has resulted to lot of panic in the financial sector. The corporate bond market is just a very small part of the whole credit puzzle in China but it is a little more transparent compared to the bank lending and this sheds light on the increased borrowing and debt defaulting by private companies in China. Last year, about 18,000 companies filed bankruptcy petitions with Chinese courts and this is almost twice the number that was recorded in the previous year. The number of defaults on bonds also hit a record high last year, Neoglory's default included and the current data shows that the default rate is five times the number recorded in 2015 and this has raised concern to many people on whether China is headed for an economic collapse. All this was happening when china was experiencing an economic downturn and Neoglory's default of debt is a reflection of the struggle most companies in China are experienced and this combined with the continuous trade disputes between China and U.S. might cause a unexpected economic collapse.

France bleeds Africa in order to keep french Economy from Collapsing







In the 1950s and 60s, France decided the French colonies of Africa to become independent. Although the Paris government accepted formal declarations of independence, it called on African countries to sign a so-called “pact for the continuation of colonization.” They agreed to introduce the French colonial currency FCFA (“Franc for the French colonies in Africa”), to maintain the French schools and military system, and to establish French as an official language. The CFA franc is the denomination of the common currency of 14 African countries members of the Franc zone. This currency, which constitutes a brake on the emergence of these countries, was created in 1945, when France ratified the Bretton Woods agreements and proceeded to implement its first declaration of parity to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) . This was called “Franc of the French Colonies of Africa” Since 1961, Paris has had controls over all foreign exchange reserves of Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Togo, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. These 14 countries are required to 85 per cent of their foreign exchange reserves at the Banque de France in Paris. These countries are forced into a colonial tax, a tax that is based on the idea that these countries, despite having independence, owe France for the benefits of France’s previous colonial rule. France also has first say over any new natural resources uncovered! Although this has been known for some time it’s just been dug up again by a German newspaper who are putting the yearly figure at $440 billion. “The French government collects from its former colonies each year 440 billion euros of taxes. France relies on the revenues coming from Africa, not to sink into economic insignificance, warns the former president Jacques Chirac. There is something almost psychopathic in the relation of France with Africa. First, France is severely addicted to looting and exploitation of Africa since the time of slavery. Then there is this complete lack of creativity and imagination of french elite to think beyond the past and tradition. Finally, France has 2 institutions which are completely frozen into the past, inhabited by paranoid and psychopath “haut fonctionnaires” who spread fear of apocalypse if France would change, and whose ideological reference still comes from the 19th century romanticism: they are the Minister of Finance and Budget of France and the Minister of Foreign affairs of France. These 2 institutions are not only a threat to Africa, but to the French themselves. BUT, what happens if a country just flat out refuses to pay this tax? Well, when Jean-Bedel Bokassa the first President of the Central African Republic was assassinated, it was reportedly on French orders, by ex Foreign legionnaire David Dacko. This was just one of 67 coups that has occurred in 26 African countries, of which 16 are ex-French colonies. Many of these coup d'etats can be tracked back to French secret services actions. And on the economic side, when a country tries to Rebel, then France control so much of the assets they are literally held prisoner. Both the United States and France teach their school children that their countries ignited the light of liberty in the world. But of course, both stories are false. I think we all agree that the French colonial practices in Africa need to end . This was The Atlantis Report . Please Like . Share . and Subscribe . Thank You .

Bank Run starts in Germany Deutsche bank clients are pulling 1 Billion Euros a day







BANK RUN Starts in Germany as DEUTSCHE BANK CLIENTS ARE PULLING $1 BILLION A DAY... So is this finally it ? ... Deutsche Bank has been forced to shed 18,000 jobs , a fifth of the payroll. That’s what happens when you apply Keynesian economics and try to micromanage the economy from the top. Central banks print money that doesn’t represent new economic activity ie real GDP growth . And thus banks and hedge funds speculate with cheap money rather than prudently investing it where real growth can take place on Main Street . Especially when interest rates are artificially lowered as they have been in the last several decades since Greenspan. Rather they should have allowed the markets to set rates as had happened in the 1907 crash. JP Morgan and Co saved the companies worth saving, let the rest crash, and the economy boomed. The Fed was incorporated in 1913 along with the income tax, after which all our real problems began. The Fed’s balance sheet for instance has grown from $500 billion a couple decades ago to $4.5 trillion… all for a tiny 2.2% gain in real household income ($61,377, only 2.2% above its 1999 level.). Meanwhile the Nasdaq 100 has gained 250%. As the former Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan, David Stockman points out, It’s a plain fact that stock prices can’t grow at 6.1 times the Main Street economy’s growth rate. DeutschBank has been trading at 90% from its top pre-recession. HSBC, Banco Santander, Credit Suisse, Citibank and others are in similar straits. As Harry Dent points out, the bank with the highest exposure to the most leveraged and toxic of all assets – credit default swaps (largely mortgage derivatives) – is Deutsche Bank. It holds 10% of this $550 trillion nuclear bomb: “Not billion. Not million. Trillion!”. At 10%, that means Deutsche Bank has $54.7 trillion credit default swamps on its books. JPMorgan isn’t far behind, with $51.9 trillion. Citibank has $51.2 trillion, Goldman Sachs has $43.6 trillion and the Bank of America has $27.8 trillion. UniCredit, Barclays, Royal Bank of Scotland, and a slew of other banks across the globe , including China, who hides its debt by pushing it to the local level , and all the emerging market nations it lends to who are at risk of default , all hold more than 10% non-performing loans. In other words , in a fractional banking system they are all Bankrupt . Deutsche Bank was likely the biggest money laundering bank in the world. The plug has been pulled and the draining continues. How much bailout money is the Federal Reserve going to provide? The Fed bailout of the global banking system during the Lehman collapse amounted to $3 trillion. The difference from Lehman is that Deutsche Bank is the systematically important bank, globally. The ECB will provide unlimited resources to prevent a Deutsche Bank implosion. They will be supported in this by every other central bank, the IMF, everyone vested in the current monetary system. These Mega Banks in today's context are extensions of Central Banks and governments. They stand ready to participate in whatever needs to be done . to extend liquidity, launder money, purchase sovereign bonds, or pay off corrupt politicians . We all need to adjust our fundamental view of 'reality,' . I am a naturally skeptic, but I know that even I am way behind in understanding the fabricated state of criminal cartels in the world. But one thing remains certain : If Deutsche Bank goes down, you have about two weeks before the US banks start declaring an unscheduled banking holiday. What bank do you think you can move money to that won’t be affected? . You better start buying gold, land, or even Bitcoin.

Too Poor to Survive -- Max Keiser


In this episode of the Summer Solutions 2019 for the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy introduce the problem: Americans “too poor to survive,” according to a study by United Way. This makes the US, “the world's first poor rich country,” according to Umair Haque, and whilst most in the mainstream media blame avocado toast for causing so much poverty in the younger generations, recent data from Deloitte shows that, in fact, it is due to the rising costs of non-discretionary expenses like housing, healthcare, and education. In the second half, they talk to professor Steve Keen about the problem of declining incomes and rising costs, and why MMT (Modern Monetary Theory) is not the right solution.

The Great Crisis of Japan: half of the Japanese municipalities will disappear by 2040








The Great Crisis of Japan -- half of the Small Town will disappear by 2040 . From a distance Japan seems an impeccable country, where there are no problems , Those problems that torment most of the West such as unemployment, crime and failure to comply with the law; without forgetting, that the Japanese people think like an organic community and that in Japan the interest for the public good comes before anything else. In short, are we facing a paradise on earth?.... Not really, because if we approach and observe the Japanese context closer, we can notice dangerous cracks that from here to the next few years risk tearing a very delicate social fabric. Where the crisis comes from One of the trends that has caused several alarm bells to ring is the emptying of rural Japan. While Tokyo and the big urban centers are getting bigger and richer - both from an economic point of view and for opportunities for young people - there are areas of the country that are slowly disappearing. As the Economists reported, some analysts say that half of the Japanese municipalities will disappear by 2040. The rural areas of Japan are on their knees as they have to bear a factor that is not just the weight of the aging population. The problems, in the end, are connected. If most people leave small towns, only the older ones will populate, without the possibility of a future generational change. The fact that the Japanese have few children (the fertility rate is 1.4 per woman) is not new and has been repeatedly noted in the national and international press; few, however, have focused attention on the depopulation of small towns. This is in fact an unstoppable trend . Last year the number of the national population decreased by 450,000 units and now stands at around 126 million people. Future projections say nothing good: between 2015 and 2045 Japan will lose even 16% of its citizens. And further hampered by very minor immigration. Japan’s population is projected to fall from a peak of 126 million recently to about 97 million by 2050… that’s a decline of 24% .The effects of such a decline will be devastating but they will be even more so for small municipalities, which will even lose 37% of the inhabitants. Some estimates show that 37% of those living in depopulated areas are over 65 years old. In short, entire population centers will become depopulated. The trend is already observable now: young people want to leave because they refuse to accept jobs related to agriculture or fishing. Women want to leave because they hope to emancipate themselves from a context that is still too conservative towards them. Indeed, starting with more women, so even those young people who would like to stay are forced to leave due to lack of brides. In some villages schools have a few dozen children, supermarkets and restaurants close their doors, as do snack bars and mini-markets. The government, to stop the bleeding, encourages people to stay or move to small towns by offering them free housing and other benefits. Some municipalities made it, like the prefecture of Tokushima, which came out of oblivion and managed to attract IT companies thanks to a perfect fast internet connection. But these are only isolated cases, and the continuous increases in the budget for rural revitalization proposed by Tokyo are not worth much. Small towns, meanwhile, are forced to make more and more cuts to keep the accounts in order. While other young people are ready to move into ultramodern megalopolises. Here are some key figures to help us understand the Japanese society : 1. 45% of women and 25% of men 16 to 24 are “not interested in or despised sexual contact.” 2. More than 49% of Japanese citizens are single. 3. 40% of unmarried men and 61% of unmarried women age 18 to 34 are not in any kind of romantic relationship. 4. 23% of women and 27% of men say “they are not interested in any kind of romantic relationship.” 5. 39% of Japanese women and 36% of men of child-bearing age, 18 to 34, have never had sex. 6. Women in their early 20s have a 25% chance of never getting married and a 40% chance of never having kids. Japanese laws and social customs make it extremely difficult for women to have a career and a family. Women who get pregnant, or even just marry, are generally expected to quit work and become a housewife. On top of this extraordinarily high lack of interest in sex and having families, the Japanese live longer than any other wealthy country in the world, with a life expectancy of 84 versus 79 in the U.S. and 80 to 81 in most of Europe. That means they retire longer and require more support from a dwindling workforce. Much worse and even more critical is the enormous fall in workforce growth of the population aged 15 to 64. It peaked in the mid-1990s at 87 million and is projected to fall to 48 million by 2050. A whopping 45%! By 2050, that 48 million workforce will be supporting 37 million elderly aged 65 and over. If this isn’t economic suicide, or Hara-kiri, I don’t know what is. This was The Atlantis Report . Please Like ,Share , and Subscribe ...Thank you .

Greece Now Uses China to scare Europe









Greece's new strategy: using China to scare Europe : The last political elections in Greece has seen a clear victory of New Democracy, a center-right party led by Kyriakos Mitsotakis. With almost 40% of the votes obtained (precisely 39.85%), New Democracy has removed the radical left Syriza of about 8% of the votes. Alexis Tsipras, outgoing prime minister at Syriza, therefore leaves the relay to Mitsotakis, whose faction got the chance to rule the country alone, having obtained 158 seats out of a total of 300 due to a 50-seat bonus inherent in the Greek electoral law . The Hellenic revolution therefore transforms politics and perspectives of Greece both nationally and internationally. But how does the relationship between Athens and the European Union change? And the one with China? Two questions worth answering. If Greece's relationship with Brussels risks being shaken, the future link with China is still shrouded in fog. If Syriza's retirees had entered Chinese orbit immediately joining Xi Jinping's New Silk Road, the New Democracy leader must now choose which path to take. Just to give an example, at the beginning of the year Mitsotakis had become the protagonist of a blunder by declaring that he had received no offers from anyone regarding a hypothetical accession of Athens to the Beijing project and that he did not understand what it meant to join the Belt and Road . In these days Kyriakos Mitsotakis is faced with two options: to continue to welcome in China rivers of Chinese investments or limit them by half-closing the door. So what is the Athens strategy ? . Greece is about to enter a delicate phase of balancing. On the one hand Athens must rebuild its economy after the near-crack of 2015, and therefore the Greek government is ready to welcome investments from Beijing. On the other hand, the country has no intention of making a rude impression on the European Union, which is increasingly skeptical of China. Every action will generate a reaction: the problem, for the new Hellenic leadership, will be whether this reaction will be harmful to the fragile Greek economic system. Of course, Misotakis could also choose to use China to scare the European Union, to force Brussels to be more flexible in the decision-making phase; arduous but courageous undertaking. How to Stay in balance , this is the big question in Athens . As the South China Morning Post rightly points out, it was a New Democracy government, in 2004, that first launched the strengthening of Greek-Chinese relations, the same ones that have recently led China to get its hands on several Greek state assets, including the port of Piraeus. Beijing has a clear role in mind for Greece; Athens is perfect to cover the role of strategic hub for trade and energy. The feeling, given the country's accounts, is that Mitsotaki continues to maintain active relations with the Dragon. Greece is hungry for investments but woe to anger the new leadership of the European Union: Ursula von Leyen is the future head of the European Commission and she had harsh words for Xi Jinping's China. Staying balanced is complicated but for Athens it is a question of life or death. This was The Atlantis Report . Please Like ,Share , and Subscribe ...Thank you .

Turkey Faces a Geostrategic choice : either Nato or Putin










Turkey faces a geostrategic choice The warming of relations between Moscow and Ankara has reached a new milestone with the delivery of the Russian S-400 missile system. Erdogan thus launches an unprecedented challenge to NATO and the United States. Three years ago almost to the day after the military coup attempt it had helped to defeat, Russia began delivering its S-400 missile system to Turkey on Friday, July 12. Vladimir Putin was the first head of state to phone Erdogan to wish him "a quick return to stability". The Turkish president has not forgotten it . Nor has he forgotten the restraint of his Western partners, nor their justified criticism of the repression that has never stopped, with some 50,000 arrests and the firing of more than 150,000 civil servants. The warming of relations between Moscow and Ankara, previously opposed in the Syrian conflict, began in the summer of 2016. Since then, it has only intensified. The "new tzar" and the "new sultan" have much in common, their conservatism as their authoritarianism, their taste for history as their desire to return their respective countries to what they consider to be the rank that they deserve. The S-400 is the symbol of this very new Russian-Turkish alliance. Turkey's purchase of these air-defense missiles in September 2017 , worth € 2.2 billion, caused consternation among its allies. Pillar of the south-east flank of the Atlantic Alliance since 1952 and second army of NATO by the number of soldiers, Turkey has certainly never been an easy partner, especially since the coming to power in 2002 Islamists of the AKP (Justice and Development Party). Reluctant to the engagement in Afghanistan, hostile to the intervention in Libya and long ambiguous vis-à-vis the jihadists of ISIS , Erdogan's Turkey already worried more and more its partners. This is Vladimir Putin's game . The NATO challenge of installing the S-400 - if it is truly completed - is unprecedented. These missiles will complicate Western military operations. Their deployment raises the question of their compatibility with the rest of the equipment of the NATO armies and the security of the Alliance against an ever more aggressive Russia. This is also playing the game of Vladimir Putin, who is using these missiles and Turkey to exacerbate the divisions within NATO. The Trump administration has given Ankara until July 31 the chance to abandon this acquisition, under the threat of economic sanctions that could be fatal to an already weakened Turkish economy. Trump is also threatening to pull Turkey out of the F-35 construction program, the latest-generation of American stealth fighters, which include Turkish companies. The training program for Turkish pilots on these planes has already been frozen. While Donald Trump is being vocal and threatening in his attitude towards Turkey , the other members of the Alliance seem for the moment to hesitate on the attitude to adopt, beyond the expression of their "concern", and hope that the recent disappointments of the party of M Erdogan in the municipal elections will lead to his defeat in the next presidential election ... In 2023. NATO's statutes do not provide for the possibility of excluding or even suspending a member state. Turkey was already marginalized, especially because of the purges in the army after the failed coup d'etat of 2016. Now, it is up to Erdogan to make the geostrategic choice imposed by the S-400 affair. . . either Putin or NATO , But playing on both sides will not be possible for long.

Alice Friedemann - For the American Economy, Storm Clouds on the Horizon











Alice Friedemann is a transportation expert sounding the alarm on the unsustainable nature of our modern trucking system, which is critical for delivering goods where they need to be, when they need to be, in our just-in-time economy. The world's trucking fleet is remarkably dependent on petroleum and, for a number of reasons she outlines in this interview, is not feasibly able to shift over to electricity or other alternative fuels. To warn of the risks and consequences of a collapse in trucking, she founded EnergySkeptic.com and authored the book When The Trucks Stop Running: Energy and the Future of Transportation. And while unlikely, her projected aftermath of a sudden complete shutdown of the trucking fleet is sobering, revealing just how dependent we are.

Ron Paul : The Americans suffer from Taxes , Regulations and Fiat Money












Ron Paul : The American people are not suffering from an excess of free markets. They suffer from an excess of taxes, regulations, and, especially, fiat money. Therefore, populist conservatives should join libertarians in seeking to eliminate federal regulations, repeal the 16th Amendment, and restore a free-market monetary system. Instead of fighting to end the welfare-regulatory system that benefits economic and political elites at the expense of average Americans, populist conservatives are promoting increased economic interventionism. For example, many populist conservatives support increased infrastructure spending and tariffs and other forms of protectionism. Like all forms of central planning, these schemes prevent goods and services from being used for the purposes most valued by consumers. This distorts the marketplace and lowers living standards — including of people whose jobs are temporally saved or created by these government interventions. Those workers would be better off in the long term finding new jobs in a free market. Anti-free-market conservatives ignore how their policies harm those they claim to care about. For example, protectionism harms farmers and others working in businesses depending on international trade. The most common complaint of social conservatives is that libertarianism promotes immorality. These conservatives confuse a libertarian’s opposition to outlawing drugs, for example, with moral approval of drug use. Many libertarians condemn drug use and other destructive behaviors. However, libertarians reject the use of government force to prevent individuals from choosing to engage in these behaviors. Instead, libertarians support the right of individuals to use peaceful means to persuade others not to engage in destructive or immoral behaviors. Libertarians also support the right of individuals not to associate with, or to subsidize in any way, those whose lifestyles or beliefs they find objectionable. Social conservatives object to libertarians because social conservatives wish to use government power to force people to be good. This is the worst type of statism because it seeks to control our minds and souls. Most people accept the idea that it is wrong to initiate force against those engaging in peaceful behaviors. Libertarians apply this nonaggression principle to government. Making government follow the nonaggression principle would end unjust wars, income and inflation taxes, and the destruction caused by the use of force to control what we do with our property, how we raise our children, who we associate with, and what we put into our bodies. Making governments abide by the nonaggression principle is the only way to restore a society that is free, prosperous, and moral.

Trump says he does not like Bitcoin .










President Donald Trump personally tweeted recently saying : I am not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, which are not money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air. Unregulated Crypto Assets can facilitate unlawful behavior, including drug trade and other illegal activity.... Economist Nouriel Roubini replied to this tweet saying that this the first time ever he agrees with Donald Trump : first time I agree with Trump : no country, not even USA skeptical of excessive regulations, will allow the wild west scams of unregulated crypto with no AML/KYC, being a bank or money servicer with no bank license/regulations. Get used to it you crypto fools/scammers. Start to comply or disappear! Roubini Said. Economist Nouriel Roubini has openly expressed his disdain for all things cryptocurrrency by calling it shitcoin, scams etc at several times. In a post on Twitter, he targeted Ethereum calling the ICO which the second largest cryptocurrency has “just a scam”. He went further to say the ICO was aimed at filling the pockets of a small group of insiders including Vitalik Buterin. The sale was not a fair one and that Crypto is the mother of all scams. The only way to be “safe” in crypto is to go back to the Stone Age. He took another swipe at Crypto security. Poking the idea behind Cold Storage and Paper Wallets, he pointed put that the idea of cold storage and paper wallet is exactly like the Stone Age and that crypto is taking us there. “Write your private key on a piece of paper and hide it in a mattress and hope you aren’t victim of a crypto robber or of paper eating rats” he said.

Jim Rogers warns worst Market Crash ever is coming












Via Economic Times: How do you view US stock markets currently? I am not investing in US stock market because I expect problems to come in the next year or two. I am not buying shares. In the US market, some of the stocks like Apple and Google go up every day. They never go down, which is a dangerous sign in any stock markets. When you have a few stocks always going up and the movement has been concentrated and that seems to be what is happening in the US stock market. Any timeline, any horizon that you have for this bear market that you are foreseeing? No, I will just say it will be the worst in my lifetime. It has been over 10 years since we had a serious bear market in the United States. I would suspect by the end of this year or next year, it will start. These things always start small, where people are not looking and then they work to the major markets, and then you see them on the major news. In 2007, Iceland went bankrupt but nobody noticed or cared. Then Ireland went bankrupt. Then a few weeks later, Bear Sterns went bankrupt and a few weeks later Northern Rock, the English Bank, went bankrupt. Then eventually Lehman brothers went bankrupt and by then, everybody knew there was a problem. But it had been there for over a year and it has always worked that way. It starts when we are not watching. It has already started. Latvia collapsed. Argentina, Venezuela, Turkey, some banks in India are having problems, Indonesia has started having problems. It has not made to evening news yet. All these markets are small but until they make it to the big markets, people do not notice.

Forever Wars! House Republicans Furious Over Iraq War Authorization Repeal


House Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) told Fox News over the weekend that the repeal of the 2001 war authorization after 9/11 and the 2002 war authorization for Iraq would "illegalize" the entire war on terror. Are we in a time warp?

Jim Rogers : Things are going to be Horrible




In July the 12th , 2019 in an interview with Money and Markets legendary investor Jim Rogers launched his latest warning to America : things are going to be Horrible he said . the longest bull market run in history, will be short-lived from here on out . “Later, this year or next year when the economies around the world are getting bad, Mr. Trump is going to blame everything on the foreigners, the Chinese, the Germans, the Japanese, everybody, and then the trade war will come back and then it’s all over,” Rogers said. “Mr. Trump is going to come back. Mr. Trump believes in his soul and his brain that trade wars are good and that he can win trade wars,” he said. “Mr. Trump knows that he is smarter than everybody else so he knows that he can win a trade war, and it will come back strong. When the American economy gets bad eventually, he’s going to blame it on trade and the trade war and it’s going to be terrible.” “The way these things have always worked, in 2007, Iceland went bankrupt, and most people had no clue about that and didn’t know or care, and then later though, Ireland went bankrupt. Few more people noticed. A little while later after that, Bear Stearns went bankrupt. A few more people started noticing. A few weeks later, Northern Rock went bankrupt, then people started catching on. Eventually, Lehman Bros. went bankrupt and by then it was on the evening news all over the world.”

A Stock Market Crash is now Inevitable



A Stock Market Crash is now Inevitable






Even though all of the economic numbers screaming that the next economic collapse is coming, the stock market just continues to soar to new record highs. In fact, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above 27,000 for the first time ever on Thursday. Investors continue to relentlessly believe that bright days are ahead even though we are on the brink of a war with Iran, we are in the middle of a trade war with China, California has been hit by more than 10,000 earthquakes over the past week, and many experts sounding the alarm that economic collapse is dead ahead. There has certainly been a lot of craziness on Wall Street in recent years, but the truth is that stock prices have never been as absurd as they are right now. It is inevitable that a very painful stock market crash is coming, but for the moment investors are celebrating another historic landmark. But if things are so good, then why is the Federal Reserve talking about cutting interest rates? Sadly, the truth is that the Federal Reserve is considering rate cuts because the economic numbers have been disastrous lately. Global trade has fallen to the lowest levels that we have seen since the last recession, and manufacturing activity just continues to plummet. Here in the United States, manufacturing activity just hit the “lowest level in nearly three years”. Meanwhile, JPMorgan’s Global Manufacturing PMI just plunged to the lowest level in nearly seven years. But in the bizarro environment that we find ourselves in, investors see those absolutely horrible numbers as evidence that the Fed will soon cut interest rates, and that means it must be a good time to buy stocks. Every bad economic number just seems to fuel the feeding frenzy, and there certainly have been a lot of bad numbers in recent days. We got many terrible news, but for many investors that is a prime buying signal. Everywhere we look we see signs of economic collapse. The auto industry is mired in the worst slump in a decade, home sales have slowed dramatically all over the nation, and we are pace to absolutely shatter the record for most retail stores closed in a single year. In fact, on Thursday we learned that another major retailer is completely liquidating. In fact, even the bond market is flashing warning sign after warning sign. But in an environment where “bad news is good news”, that is just another indication that this is a perfect time for investors to gobble up stocks like there is no tomorrow. For months, I have been documenting the numbers that indicate that a new economic collapse has already begun. But until the next stock market crash actually happens, the irrational optimists on Wall Street are just going to continue to mock those of us that are warning that the party cannot continue indefinitely. Sadly, when the party on Wall Street finally ends it is likely to happen very suddenly, and the pain will be off the charts. Let me say this one more time. You only make money in the stock market if you get out in time. If you are still holding on to your stocks after the big crash happens, it is not going to matter that the Dow once hit 27,000, because you will never see any of the money that you could have made if you had gotten out at the top of the market.

There is a Bubble in everything and it is worse than 2008









If not for QE and the forever low interest rates ,the Dow Jones would be 15,000 at most , so the Fed Reserve can NEVER allow asset bubbles to deflate and I mean NEVER......not with all the debt in the public and private sector and the effects of technology, globalism and demographics as they are. Failure to keep the air inflated will result in a never before seen global catastrophe . Banks create money from loans and this forms 97% of our money supply. Bank loans create money and the repayment of debt to banks destroys money. This makes the money supply very dynamic and unstable. The FED is full of MBAs , Masters of BUBBLE Administration....except they couldn't find a bubble. The economy is dysfunctional, totally dependent on continued Fed support in the form of jawboning and interest rate cuts, suffering intensely from rapidly declining macro factors like shipping, retail,and manufacturing all heading south. The low interest rates will crater the pension funds. This will force an upward spiral in property taxes to compensate . What will stop this bubble is another. That bubble will be food prices as crops are being destroyed by record cold , floods ,fires and other environmental catastrophes all over the world. You can take on room mates if rent or house prices go up. You can combine trips if gas goes up. If food goes up you are limited in how much less you eat. Food prices will double then triple in the next couple of years. History says it will happen. I would gladly be wrong as it will mean mass depopulation. The Maunder Minimum killed 30 to 50 percent of the population to starvation and plague. These people were hardy individuals who could forage fish and hunt. They starved and there were only 750 million then. Imagine the abundance of wildlife fish and natural forage if only 750 million people were on the planet. Europeans resorted to killing their children and neighbors for food. Besides the food prices bubble , the housing bubble seems to have been reblown . There are many locales in California where prices have nearly doubled the peaks set in 2006/2007, or exceeded them even. In the real estate boom, new money pours into the economy from mortgage lending, fueling a boom in the real economy, which feeds back into the real estate boom. The Japanese real estate boom of the 1980s was so excessive the people even commented on the “excess money”, and everyone enjoyed spending that excess money in the economy. In the real estate bust, debt repayments to banks destroy money and push the economy towards debt deflation (a shrinking money supply). Japan has been like this for thirty years as they pay back the debts from their 1980s excesses, it’s called a balance sheet recession. The real estate booms are a global phenomenon. Australia and Canada are soon going to learn the hard way what happens in a real estate bust. The real world has been trying to tell us real estate is not a permanent store of wealth. The fictitious financial wealth in real estate disappears quicker than it is created . in the 1990s the bust happened in Scandinavia and Japan . In the 2000s it happened in Iceland , Dubai , and in 2008 in the US . in the 2010s it happened in Ireland Spain and Greece. so get ready to put Australia, Canada, Norway, Sweden and Hong Kong on the list for future busts ... Eventually demographics will take care of this. All the Boomers that could afford these homes will die off, as supply comes into the market prices will drop,or their kids will move into their homes, rents will drop. Or rates finally go up, and prices will drop. Real estate, with the exception of the few places in the USA seeing population growth, will be a bad investment for the foreseeable future , because demographics say so. What is going to give? The same thing that has been giving much more over the last 5 years and counting. It's the Renters! Leading to the current homeless crisis that is getting worse and worse month after month year after year. Half the country will be homeless leaving landlords with a lot of empty units! besides CEOs I don't know who is seeing their wages rise. Corporations have been cutting in a million ways with less benefits, forcing you to contribute more to your health care, giving you worse plans requiring more out of pocket, etc... Plus life has gotten so much more expensive in the last ten years with higher real estate taxes, food prices, insurance costs all way up, education and even the avocado toast are more expensive ... So Keep it up America, the race for the bottom is on!

Mad World: Journeying Further Into the Nightmare of Modernity


The left has for years been using the courts to remove any standards of decency from public life and we are now witnessing the results. Deviancy and degenerate behavior on display almost everywhere you turn. Remove such standards from a decent, civilized society and many people, because they are weak, will live down to the deepest, darkest depths of their souls.

The Case of Gold vs Bitcoin










The total value of all bitcoin based on 21 Million limit of bitcoin is about 200 Billion , we already have mined 17 Million , only 4 Million left to go . Meanwhile the total value of gold above ground is around 7 Trillion. But the total value of fiat is some vast number over that probably 100-500 trillion, maybe a quadrillion including derivatives, who knows...., there's no decentralized ledger. In other words a mania like tulip bulbs which busted in weeks, the time it took to ride a horse from Amsterdam to London... Gold instead has a pretty long track record of being accepted as a store of value. It is still possible to find more of it underground, but it isn't easy. Hence, diluting the current gold supply requires a lot of resource and investment. That , limits the amount of dilution that is likely to occur, with the possible exception of counterfeiting. It wasn't that long ago when it took 10 bitcoins to buy an ounce of gold. Now, 6 years later, it takes 10 ounces of gold to buy 1 bitcoin. What fool would give up 10 ounces of physical gold for one electronic bitcoin? , I would rather use the bitcoin as a vehicle to get 10 ounces of physical gold Bitcoin, is a bit of a farce. It is hailed as an untraceable form of payment, but yet it's existence relies on the existence of a data chain that lists every transaction ever made. That would seem to be some pretty serious false advertising. Add to that, the fact that I don't trust the "creators" of bitcoin, or any other crypto, to not create more of it, when the time suits them. And of course it can be done.The Dilution of crypto seems as inevitable as debasement of any other form of fiat. Some will say that untraceable currency is a haven for criminals. I say that fully traceable currency (blockchain) is a haven for criminals in high places who want to monitor the spending habits of the masses in order to determine who they can steal the most from. Knowing where the money is, can be the first step in stealing it. A currency that is fully traced and scalable at will is a wet dream for the self anointed producers & controllers of "money". It is not such a good thing for people who want to make transactions. The creators of the currency can print their wealth at will and enslave those who work to get paid in that currency. It's very much a one sided deal. Thomas Jefferson is credited as saying "I would not be a master, as I would not be a slave". I take the same approach to currency. I favor a medium that is not easy to debase for the benefit of a limited number of anointed entities, at the expense of those who actually produce things of value & provide useful services. Also, when the power grid goes down, physical currency still works. Crypto, not so much. Some people have made a lot of money trading in crypto. Then again, some people made a lot of money off of a handful of tulip bulbs, back during a certain well documented buying frenzy in that market. You should not be speculating in things of that nature, relying on continuing to find a greater fool. You should see value and security in holding gold and silver. I see risk in holding crypto. Another Problem is that there is a new crypto coming out every other day. Facebook has one coming out so it is man made , How can it be rare and of value, when it can be created by man at will . On the other hand , there is only one gold when its all mined that's it. You can't keep making it. Conclusion: Right now, there are more than 2,500 recognized cryptos out there and their number is constantly increasing. 2,500 and counting. Still, not all of them are actually used by a large number of people. In fact, most of them have been flying under the radar of most crypto enthusiasts. Matter of fact , 99.9% of the world has no clue what bitcoin is or uses it. Another human made scam. When it all goes to crypto's your freedoms will be gone. If Hong Kong had all crypto at this time it would be so easy to clear the streets of protesters just shut down the internet or power and they would be running back to work when they can't buy food. In reality with bitcoin you are basically at the mercy of the power companies. They can liquidate you in minutes. a blackout and the magic is gone. It is difficult to put a value on bitcoin, from a scarcity point of view a bitcoin value should be between 0 and infinity? Who Which system is gonna define its true value when already nowadays all values are monitored by rigged markets ,What a joke. Stored physical gold can be shown and transferred as collateral from place to place, but bitcoins ? There is something OK and something weird with bitcoin ( not to speak about all other e-coins. ) Our Fiat is nowadays also a kind of e-money, but it is easier to understand and can up to now still be had under a physical form be it a paper with numbers on. Something could not get me hot for bitcoins and even less for other e-coins. To me they have a Pokemon, candy or matchbox collecting taste, not full-grown. While Central Banks and billionaires are buying gold or have gold in their possession to protect their wealth the Real Money. They give the sheeple fiat to play with. At the end of the day they still have the real wealth in their possession. Reserve Bank of India has already joined its peers to buy gold insurance as US-China trade war escalates . So far, China and Russia are the most aggressive buyers, but Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is now the 10th largest gold reserve holder in the world, as of June, according to IMF . In a gold economy, which corporate could afford to pay the million dollar salaries to CEO and superstars? All superstars and high flyers will empty worldwide gold vault within a month. Both crypto and fiat in digital could create at will. Gold you cannot.

Trump's Condos and the Money Laundering for the Russians and not only










Watch in this picture : Donald Jr. with the pink tie, Michael Dezer, who worked on Trump projects, in the blue sweater, Ivanka, Eric Trump with the blue tie, and Elena Baronoff on the far right. Elena Baronoff was a former Russian Spy. She had originally come to USA as a “Cultural Attaché in Public Diplomacy for the Russian Government”, a title used in the 1980’s by Russian spies that infiltrated business circles. Her job was to introduce Russians from all over the world to the Trump organization — to help them launder their money by buying real estate. Reuters Reported that many people involved in Putin’s government bought real estate in Sunny Isles, but didn’t report them, to hide these money laundering activities. Three buyers of real estate were accused in federal indictments of belonging to a Russian-American organised crime group and working for a major international crime boss based in Russia. One of them was even arrested for running a gambling and money laundering ring in the Trump tower in Manhattan Trump condos Records show that more than 1,300 Trump condominiums were bought not by people but by shell companies. Trump condo sales that match Treasury’s characteristics of “possible money laundering” totalled $1.5 billion (21% of the 6,400 Trump condos sold in the US). Half of the secretive sales – with a total value of $769 million – were made to a particularly opaque type of shell company called a limited-liability company, LLC, which FinCEN says is “inherently vulnerable to abuse”. Trump himself signed the deed for each secretive sale at Trump Tower and collected $28 million. Secretive Trump condo sales surged in 1997/1998 when most Wall Street banks stopped lending to Trump after his 2 Atlantic City casinos filed for bankruptcy. From 2008 through 2012, shell companies bought 823 Trump condos with $890 million in cash – 25% of units sold. More than 87% of those sales were in Trump-licensed buildings. Secretive sales generated $110 million between 2010 and 2013, records show. The buyers were largely LLCs that were formed just weeks or days before buying. Most of the transactions give little or no clues about the actual buyers. In July 2016, FinCEN wrote that more than a quarter of the people who controlled the shell companies in Manhattan and Miami-Dade had at one time engaged in “possible criminal activity”. One of Trump project’s engaged a Russia-born developer, who had been convicted of money laundering in the 1990s. In March 2008, a Russian billionaire paid Trump $95 million for a Palm Beach, Florida, estate that Trump had bought 4 years earlier for $41 million. On 10 September 1997, a shell company bought a condo at the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Manhattan for $2.26 million, and sold it 8 weeks later to another shell company – for $3 million (a 33% gain). In Miami-Dade County, Florida, a shell company bought a condo in a Trump-licensed building on 12 Augustus 2010 for $956,768. The company sold the condo the same day to another shell company for $525,000. In 1984, federal prosecutors charged Russian native David Bogatin with taking part in a massive gasoline bootlegging operation and buying five Trump Tower condos for $4.9 million to launder the proceeds. Bogatin pleaded guilty in 1987 and was released from federal prison in 1998. After Haitian dictator Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier had been overthrown in 1986, the Haitian government claimed that Duvalier had laundered stolen treasury funds by buying a Trump Tower apartment 54-K for $446,875 in August 1983. Duvalier used the Panama shell company Lasa Trade and Finance to buy the apartment in cash. Trump signed the deed of sale

This is how Deutsche Bank was laundering billions of Russian money









This is how Deutsche Bank was Laundering Billions of Russian Money called Global Laundromat – 20 billion : In the “Global Laundromat”, between 2010 and 2014, at least $20 billion of Russian money was laundered; Deutsche Bank again played an important role. In this scheme the Latvian bank Trasta Komercbanka was used as a last point before the money was transferred across the globe. Trasta needed a corresponding Western financial institute to process its dollar-denominated transactions. Two German banks became corresponding banks for Trasta: Deutsche and Commerzbank. There are of course connections from the Global Laundromat to Vladimir Putin. The Russian RZB bank was a major player in this multibillion rouble fraud. This Moscow bank wired 152.5 billion roubles (about $5 billion) to the Moldovan Moldinconbank from 2012 to 2014. Moldinconbank received most of the wires from Russian banks and then routed the money through the Latvian Trasta Komercbanka, which transferred it to Europe. Until 2011, RZB belonged to Elena Baturina, wife of the former mayor of Moscow, Yury Luzhkov. In 2010, Luzhkov was ousted by President Putin, and the next year Baturina also lost RZB. In 2011, 6 Cyprus companies became the owners of RZB. One of them – Boaden Ltd, which controlled 16.35% of RZB – was owned by St. Petersburg businessman Alexander Grigoriev, who became the corporate director of RZB. Grigoriev brought a new management team to RZB, which included Igor Putin, Vladimir Putin’s cousin, who served on RZB’s board until 2014. Grigoriev and Igor Putin share several connections. Igor Putin also was a board member of construction company SU-888, where Grigoriev is a majority shareholder. Igor Putin was also a board member of Promsberbank, in which Grigoriev owned a share. In 2013, Grigoriev acquired another Moldovan bank, Zapadniy. Zapadniy opened correspondent accounts in Moldindconbank and also became involved in transferring money from Russia to Moldova. Ilya Lomakin-Rumyantsev, who became CEO of Zapadniy had been head of Putin’s Presidential Expert Department in 2009-2011. In 2014-15, regulators stripped Alexander Grigoriev from his banking licences It’s hypocritical to blame the whole Laundromat on Russian and German banks, going as far as labelling it the “Russian Laundromat” when British banks were arguably taking most of the action, with HSBC bank as THE major player. Other banks involved in the Laundromat: HSBC, Bank of America, JP Morgan, Standard Chartered, Lloyds, UBS and ING.

Buy Gold Now Before the USD becomes worthless










Poland has added 100 tons of gold to its reserves through the first half of this year and plans to move at least half of its hoard from England to National Bank of Poland vaults in Warsaw. Poland began accumulating gold last year when it added 7 tons of the yellow metal to its reserves in June and another 3 tons in August. At the time, it was the largest gold purchase by Poland since 1998, and it was the first EU country to add a significant amount of gold to its reserves since 1983. Poland is doing exactly what every other country is doing, as the Entire world is going back to a Gold Standard and that has already been agreed on. "Legendary investor Jim Sinclair and his business partner Bill Holter say Gold is going much higher. It’s a mathematical certainty. Sinclair says, “You need to look at gold, not a speculation, but as a savings account. If the dollar gets sliced in half, you basically double the value (of your gold) if not more. I think much more. . . . In the second reset, that will take gold to a price where it will balance the ability to pay global debt. That’s the major move coming forward. Right now, we are definitely going back to the $1,850 and $1,925 area per ounce for gold. The second reset, you can pick any price you want for gold. Pick a high price.” --- "With the national debt officially at $22 trillion, and the additional “missing” $21 trillion discovered by Economics Professor Mark Skidmore at Michigan State University in 2017, you have a huge amount of debt and dollars floating around. This fact makes Sinclair’s prediction of $50,000 per ounce gold a few years ago look conservative. Bill Holter has done the math and says it simply must go much higher. Holter explains, “If you take the 8,300 tons the U.S. supposedly has, and I did this math last year when the official national debt was approaching $21 trillion, gold would need to be $87,000 per ounce to cover just the on books debt. I am not talking about the “missing” money, not future guarantees, pensions, Social Security and things like that. . . . So, the number is $87,000 per ounce for gold or multiples of that.Gold 87,000 per ounce would mean the US-Dollar would literally not exist anymore. Another expert Catherine Austin Fitts, noted the elite who stole 23 trillion dollars want everyone to be excited for a debt jubilee. If one happens they will not be responsible nor answerable for their theft. This group is the global elite. To have kept ourselves from this predicament the govt. could have done the bail out by paying off all homeowner mortgages. The money would have been sent to the banks. They would have received the funds and the people would have had their property paid off. Property owners would have greased the economic wheels with their excess funds since they wouldn't have a mortgage payment. Banks would have been flush with the money from paid off loans. Instead we are still stimulating the globalists, who now own a majority of the mortgages. Seized by the bailed out banks, and also bought on the cheap after so many homes were foreclosed on. A property management companies realtor told me that the biggest property owner in Nevada, and probably most states, is Berkshire Hathaway. Bailed out during the bank bail outs, since they were a major stock holder in many large banks and financial companies during the last decade. The ones who were kept in business by the bail outs are now the holders of many lost homes. So now bailing out these mortgages during a jubilee will once again bail out the 1 percent disproportionately. No surprise, it is always the wealthy who line themselves up ahead of the hard working people and steal any real assistance. If you doubt it check on who was helped the most by the government in the last 10 years. The group that grew wealthier - the wait for it.... The 1 percent.,There is more debt than money, there has to be. The Fed does not print interest they only print principle, therefore it has to become greater and can never be paid off. We were supposed to go into a depression in 1982 according to the Kondratiev Wave, which is a wave that is very close to the established "Jubilee" year.The debt is not payable at 22 trillion not to mention unfunded liabilities. Somethings going to break The European Illuminati Bankers are acquiring massive amount of Gold on the Sly right now and have been for almost ten years & they're dumping US Treasury Bills/Bonds and US DOLLAR , now ALL Toxic assets. If you don't have gold in your hands, when the Currency Reset comes and the American Dollar looses 40-50% of it's value, you will be Wiped out financially.

Weaponizing "Truth" Against Freedom















"The illusion of freedom will continue for as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will take down the scenery, move the tables and chairs out of the way, then they will pull back the curtains and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater." - Frank Zappa "Who controls the past controls the future, who controls the present controls the past." - George Orwell When the tyrant has disposed of foreign enemies by conquest or treaty and there is nothing to fear from them, then he is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader. - Plato "I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers that can't be questioned.” - Richard Feynman “I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door.

The Problems with the US Dollar -- Dr. Michael Hudson and Max Keiser





















In this episode of the Summer Solutions 2019 for the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy are joined by Dr. Michael Hudson, author of many books, including “And Forgive Them Their Debts,’ for his ideas on solutions to the ever growing wealth and income gap currently ‘solved’ with ever increasing amounts of debt. They discuss the reason for the huge surge in this wealth and income gap that began in the early seventies as the top once percent ran off with all the productivity gains. What role, if any, does the post-Bretton-Woods-all-fiat-dollar-reserve-system play in this economic injustice? The discussion then moves to Representative Brad Sherman’s recent claim that, "An awful lot of our international power comes from the fact that the U.S. dollar is the standard unit of international finance and transactions. Clearing through the New York Fed is critical for major oil and other transactions.”

Jeffrey Epstein Story just got stranger



Epstein was charged Monday by the US Attorney's office for the Southern District of New York with sex trafficking of minors. He pleaded not guilty and faces as much as 45 years in prison if convicted. But the first investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against him began over a decade ago.








Pedophile scandal just gets bigger and stranger , Isaac Kappy predicted something big would happen on the 4th July (the news broke about the sealed documents being made public three days ago, though only just appeared on the BBC today). And so did Simon Parkes ...He was expecting trump to make an announcement at the celebrations ...then the submarine thing happened just before., Parkes thinks this was the cabal trying to upset trumps plans . Epstein is probably a small fish in this child trafficking business but an important catalyst to blowing the whole thing open (as Kappy repeatedly pointed out). Also ties in with NXIVM which used similar recruitment schemes, the head of which has also just been found guilty of child trafficking and child pornography. All being played down in the mainstream press but this a major story leading to huge names and multi-billion $ businesses, rather than obscure low level trafficking gangs. And whatever anybody thinks of Trump, none of this would have come out if Hillary was the president, that much is sure! She is closely linked to NXIVM and Epstein. Isaac Kappy Died Recently After Naming the Names Kappy has been in Hollywood circles, not as a huge star but he’s been there. He was in Thor and Terminator: Salvation, among other hit films and did a lot of writing. Approximately a year ago, he began speaking up about Hollywood sex cults and pedophilia, and he named a lot of names like Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Seth Green and many many more. At the same time he began speaking out, many mainstream outlets all of sudden, like TMZ, were publishing weird information about him, like the idea that he was supposedly involved in abusing and choking Paris Jackson, a former good friend of his, for example. It was weird to say the least, especially given the fact that it happened when he began to share what he was sharing. The latest news on Kappy is quite sad, as it appears he has passed away. It’s being reported that he recently jumped off a bridge in Arizona and committed suicide. Apparently, several witnesses were around and tried to stop him from doing so. Kappy is not the only one who has been vocal about these issues, apart from the examples above, there are people like the example below as well. Below is a tweet from Sarah Ruth Ashcraft, a supposed MK Ultra child sex slave victim Kappy produced an hour long rap song on Epstein called Brackets in Jackets (a reference to the Q phenomenon) graphically detailing the whole scandal. His whole disappearance is a mystery, with no identification of his body, the scene of the death being completely clear withing 15 minutes of him jumping according to witnesses, reports of a homeless man who looked very similar to Isaac in the same area, throwing himself off the bridge that morning. The latest rumour has a friend of his claiming to have talked to him 12 hours after his alleged suicide, and him being in a Witness Protection scheme. Not sure how true this is, but nevertheless the whole incident at the bridge has many inconsistencies. Epstein was charged Monday by the US Attorney's office for the Southern District of New York with sex trafficking of minors. He pleaded not guilty and faces as much as 45 years in prison if convicted. But the first investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against him began over a decade ago.

Louisiana to be hit by the Worst Hurricane since Katrina









New Orleans is about to be hit by “an extreme rainfall event” that is likely to be the worst disaster that the city has seen since Hurricane Katrina. It is being projected that Tropical Storm Barry could officially become a hurricane before it makes landfall on Saturday, but in this case the wind speed is not really that important. Instead, the massive amount of rain that this immense storm will dump on southern Louisiana is the greatest danger, because the region is potentially facing flooding that is absolutely unprecedented. In fact, one weather expert is even warning that the flooding could be so dramatic that it might actually “change the course of American history”…

Peter Schiff : This Time, Rate Cuts Will Backfire






The Peter Schiff Show Podcast - Episode 483 Recorded July 11, 2019 Tune in to my first live YouTube event Monday, July 15, 9pm Eastern time U.S. Call in and convince me that I’m wrong on bitcoin! DJIA Record High Today - Dow Jones set a record high today, closing above 27,000 for the first time ever. We added 227.88 points on the day. We closed at 27,088.08. The record high, 27,088.45 set just before the close. You know, we added to yesterday's gains, the S&P 500 was also up again - not taking out the record that was set yesterday, but we did, for the second day in a row managed to trade above the 3000 mark, although we have yet to close above it - ever so close today: 2999.91. But a very small percentage gain for the S&P, not even a quarter of 1%. Russell 2000 Down .5% - Broader market was weaker. The NASDAQ was actually down slightly - 6.5 points. The weakest index being the Russell 2000, down almost a half of a percent. It was lower during the day. Again, the Russell 2000 is the index that is most sensitive to the domestic economy. I've pointed out on this podcast many times that it is the index that is the weakest, and is not even close to making a new high. And I don't believe it will. I think the broader market is going to roll over, and the small caps are going to lead the way. Traders Weren't Paying Attention to Bond Market - In fact, if the traders were paying attention to what was going on in the bond market, we probably would have seen a bigger selloff today. I think we still have some euphoria left over from the two-day "Dove Fest" where Fed Chairman Jerome Powell was up on Capitol Hill basically green-lighting the July rate cut, which is coming up in a couple of weeks. Remember, when we got that better than expected nonfarm payroll report, the odds of a rate cut in July went down from about 100% to maybe 91%, and the odds really came down for the probability of a 50 basis points cut. So it was pretty much 91%, I think, 25 basis points, and that was it. Odds of Rate Cut in July Back up to 100% - But after Powell released his prepared remarks, before he even made it up to Capitol Hill - just merely when the markets got a look at his prepared testimony, the odds of a rate cut in July immediately went back up to 100%, and, in fact the odds of a 50 basis point cut went back up to 20%.
