Dear President Trump,  you have legal precedent for your ban on illegal immigration.  The McCarran-Walter Act of 1952, duly passed by Congress, signed by Harry Truman and last used by Jimmy Carter in 1979 to prevent Iranian immigration.  How is it possible a judge from Seattle can rule in direct opposition to law already on the books and duly made as law?  As you promised on the campaign trail to enforce laws already on the books, using and enforcing McCarran-Walter can be added to the promises you have already kept.

Sincerely,

James E. Sinclair and William L. Holter

Apocalypse Island: Tech Billionaires Are Building Boltholes In New Zealand Because They Now Fear Social Collapse Or Nuclear War. So What Do They Know That We Don’t?
February 4, 2017

You’re all set — your bags were packed long ago, there’s a dozen solid gold coins stashed inside your belt and a pistol strapped round your waist.

There’s no need to say goodbye to the wife and children as they’re already waiting for you 6,000 miles away in New Zealand, having slipped off quietly at the first whiff of global catastrophe.

Now, they’re making themselves comfortable in that fortress home you’ve spent years preparing. They’ve got store-loads of food and enough guns and ammunition to start World War III – which might, anyway, have begun by the time you arrive.

Not ‘Lone Wolves’ After All: How ISIS Is Guiding Terror Plots From Afar
February , 2017

HYDERABAD, India — When the Islamic State identified a promising young recruit willing to carry out an attack in one of India’s major tech hubs, the group made sure to arrange everything down to the bullets he needed to kill victims.

For 17 months, terrorist operatives guided the recruit, a young engineer named Mohammed Ibrahim Yazdani, through every step of what they planned to be the Islamic State’s first strike on Indian soil.

Mohammed Ibrahim Yazdani, left, and his younger brother Ilyas, whom he recruited to participate in the Hyderabad plot.

They vetted each new member of the cell as Mr. Yazdani recruited helpers. They taught him how to pledge allegiance to the terrorist group and securely send the statement.

Long Time U.S. Vassal State Japan To Bypass Dollar And SWIFT To Transact Using China’s CIPS System In Inter-Bank Settlement
February 3, 2017

Ever since China began to duplicate Western financial institutions starting in 2013, more and more nations have begun matriculating towards the East, and away from dollar hegemony.  And one of the most important of these new infrastructures is the Chinese CIPS platforms which functions for the RMB the same way SWIFT does for the dollar.

Yet unlike the way SWIFT charges for swaps when nations have to use the dollar as a middleman since it still reigns as the world’s singular reserve currency, CIPS allows for much lower transaction fees and the convenience of bypassing the U.S. currency through direct bi-lateral currency settlement.

Iran To Ditch The Dollar In Wake Of Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban’
January 30, 2017

The Iranian government is to stop using the US dollar in its official statements, according to a report in the local English-language daily the Financial Tribune.

The decision was announced by Central Bank of Iran governor Valiollah Seif during a television interview on the evening of January 29 and, according to the paper, is due to take effect from the start of the new fiscal year on 21 March. It will affect all official financial and foreign exchange reports.

The move is significant in the light of the recent ‘Muslim ban’ by US President Donald Trump, which prevents anyone from Iran and six other Muslim-majority countries from entering the US. The Iranian government has vowed to take “reciprocal measures” and has said it will stop issuing visas to US citizens. Some exceptions to this may be made though. Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has said that it has yet to decide on whether to allow a US freestyle wrestling team into the country. The team is due to compete in the Wrestling World Cup in Kermanshah province in mid-February.

Trump To Ask For ‘Major Investigation Into Voter Fraud’
January 25, 2017

President Trump on Wednesday said he will launch a “major” investigation to look into voter fraud in the country.

“I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and….even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time),” the president tweeted Wednesday morning.

“Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!”

Trump White House Clashes With Resistant Civil Servants
February 1, 2017

Tensions between President Trump and the civil service have spilled out into the open as the bureaucracy’s career employees publicly clash with their chief executive.

Civil servants were always bound to be at odds with the president, who promised to drain the government “swamp.” But now a string of spats with the bureaucracy, culminating Friday with the president’s controversial immigration executive order, has forced that bad blood to become public. After the acting attorney general refused to defend Trump’s order on Monday night, he fired her. Meanwhile, hundreds of State Department diplomats are reportedly signing on to a dissent memo criticizing the policy.

The moves are the latest signals of unease from a civil service facing a 180-degree shift from the previous administration and a new president who repeatedly lambasted the bureaucracy while on the campaign stump.

Trump Taps Neil Gorsuch For Supreme Court
January 31, 2017

President Trump on Tuesday selected Neil Gorsuch to succeed Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, setting up a nasty confirmation battle with Senate Democrats stung over the GOP blockade against former President Obama’s pick.

Trump named Gorsuch, a well-respected conservative who sits on the Colorado-based 10th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, after a drama-packed day that resembled the president’s former reality show “The Apprentice.”

Dear Mr. President Don:

You’re their President as you are won. That is the entire matter. MSM and wild eyed and undisciplined liberals should get on with their lives as there is nothing you can do about it. The world political and ambassadorial fops should stop trying to predict what has never happened before in anyone’s life time.

Nigel Farrago today said it perfect in get over it. No one can forecast Presidents Trump’s moves as he does not give a dame about his troops. This President does who now ignore the manufactures of fake news,

MSM. In fact he dislikes them all intensely. The MSM fraternity has caused irreconcilable differences between them. Keep in mind this man you are the master of rescue from Bankruptcy. The new President has just taken over a Bankrupt world of globally interacting financially. “The Art of the Bankruptcy” may be your next 2 years.

Nigel Farage Brutally Trolled With ‘He’s Lying To You’ Sign During Speech About Donald Trump

Nigel Farage was brutally trolled during a speech about Donald Trump today by a Labour MEP.

London MEP Seb Dance switched seats to sit right behind Farage during a speech to the European Parliament in Brussels – and held up a little sign telling viewers “he’s lying to you.”

The hilarious moment came as Farage barked out a speech accusing the EU being of “anti-American” and “anti-democratic zealots”.

When did we start ignoring the laws of sedition?

Clearly a movement is being promoted to usurp our government, by a Georgetown professor no less!

This is how most view Sedition…..

However, there is a fine line here.  Freedom to voice your opinion does NOT equate to an attempt to overthrow the government!

Media Promotes Military Coup to Remove Trump from Office
February 2, 2017

(Intellihub) In yet another astonishing attack on the very legitimacy of the Trump presidency, multiple high-profile news outlets have published an article that floats the idea of using the military to remove Trump from office.

Writing for Foreign Policy, Georgetown University professor and Schwartz senior fellow at the New America Foundation, Rosa Brooks discusses three ways that the left believes they may be able to remove the rightfully elected president from office.

Brooks first touches on the ludicrous idea of impeaching Trump for literally nothing more than intelligence agency disinformation and political differences. She then moves on to the played out idea of using the 25th Amendment to remove the president which would require his entire cabinet turning against him.

Dear Wolfgang,

I was wondering, as the left actually takes up arms calling for an over throw of the government if the Law of Sedition was still on the books. The Supreme Court has said that Freedom of Speech does not license a person to “yell fire In a theater”.

If it was still on the books then looks at these liberals showing their truer colors. Almost every dictator has come from the left including Hitler.

If you commit Sedition lock them up.

Ry,

Dear Jim and all CIGAs,

My name is Alonso and have been your fan for years, thanks for all your free and amazing information and knowledge. I would like to share my ideas and knowledge from over 20 years of traveling around the world. I have noticed that most of the gold bugs are saying the dollar is going to crash this year, I have being hearing this very strongly for the last4 to 5 years approximately , it feels to me like were in the “wolf wolf wolf” stage, people are losing trust in the information all over. No matter what the media says, from traveling around the world people are still running away from their currency to dollars. If no big swan will arrive then the dollar will been one of the last standing currencies. Hope you have time to comment and thanks again for all.

Wishing you years of health and happiness.

A

Dear Alon,

The value of paper currency is its ability to maintain or increase buying power over time. The value of a currency is not the USDX or any other index of the dollar versus other currencies.

Watching the USDX is watching a race to the bottom which could show the dollar the strongest in a period when other currencies are losing buying power faster than the dollar. Yet the dollar is also losing buying power

That has nothing to do with stability of the dollar or any other fiat currency.

Best Regards,

Jim

Chicken Little is an excellent provocative article for those sitting on their hands with the look of a deer in the headlights. It is incredible. Even the ones you love sit there and let 70 to 100 thousand dollars get sucked into the abyss even when you give them the cold hard facts, charts, explanations…On my extreme frustration with displaying the truth, I told my dad; “you are not a tree, you can move. If you do not move, there will be nothing including your [mom and dad] social security checks.” And still nothing.

It makes you want to give up, but a last once a year reminder may knock them out of their complacency, apathy and trust in the banksters. I hope.

ALL savings, checking, retirements, brokerage accounts…ended up with a zero balance in 1929. We are clearly in the exact same scenario today. You can feel the quiet before the avalanche. Feel the snow crackling beneath your feet?

Take care!

On Monday, President Trump signed and Executive Order to get the United States out of the Trans Pacific “Partnership”. This is a decision that every citizen of the United State (Left, Right and Middle of the Road) should cheer.

Why?

As Paul Craig Roberts (former Assistant Treasury Secretary under Ronald Reagan) said in an article yesterday:

…..the most strategic part of these agreements (TPP & TAP) is that they make global corporations immune from the laws of the countries in which they do business if those laws adversely impact the profits of the global corporations.

Who decides the question? Not the courts of the countries or a world court.

The question is decided by a corporate tribunal staffed only by corporations.

In other words, the sovereign laws of sovereign countries, such as France’s laws against GMOs, are subject to damage suits decided by corporate tribunals, which means the end of the legal sovereignty of countries.

Please let THAT sink in for a minute!

Without Trump’s bold move, we all would be heading toward a world in which a very small handful of Global Corporate Elite Oligarchs would ultimately have the power to dictate EVERYTHING each and every one of us would be allowed to do in EVERY aspect of our lives. Life as we know it today would have been over forever.

So, whether you like Trump or hate him, you should thank him for this decision.

Thanks Jim and Bill for keeping watch and keeping us informed,

Donald Trump Supreme Court Choice Announcement Coming Tuesday Evening
January 30, 2017

(CNN) — President Donald Trump tweeted that he will reveal his choice to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court in an announcement Tuesday night.

“I have made my decision on who I will nominate for The United States Supreme Court. It will be announced live on Tuesday at 8:00 P.M. (W.H.),” the President tweeted.

After the death of late Justice Antonin Scalia, President Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland, but the Republican majority prevented his confirmation. This move maintained the vacancy on the court — leaving a space open for Trump to make his pick.

Trump, like Obama, signs flurry of first week executive actions
January 27, 2017

President Trump’s first week in office has been marked by a series of significant executive actions as he looks to start in on some of his key priorities. 

Presidents have a handful of tools to push through policy without waiting on Congress—including executive orders and the less formal process of presidential memoranda. Both allow the president to direct executive agencies on how he wants them to enforce existing law. 

Trump’s pace of six orders and eight memoranda in his first seven days puts him roughly on pace with former President Barack Obama’s first week in office. But Trump and Obama both dwarfed other recent presidents in their use of executive actions early in their term.

Americans Spend More Than They Earn For 9th Straight Month As Savings Rate Tumbles To 2015 Lows

Personal income growth disappointed in December, rising a less-than-expected 0.3% MoM. Of course, that did not stop Americans from spending as personal consumption rose 0.5% MoM in December. This is the 9th month in a row of higher annual spending growth than income growth…

Sadly for all those hyping and hoping for wage growth – it is stagnant again…
