Jim/Bill,

Nothing to see here.  Just move on..

Lowest jobless claims since 1969, yet no wage pressure?

This is the lowest level of claims since November 1969 (when The Beatles’ “Abbey Road” album was #1 in the US)…

…and still no wage pressure…

Can only be that all the unemployment benefits have run their course and expired.

People now sitting home in their parents’ basements posting on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and browsing Netflix, Amazon, eBay.

Why work?   Wait until Guaranteed Income laws are passed.

Initial Jobless Claims Plunge To Lowest Since The ’60s
July 19, 2018

Initial jobless claims in the last week tumbled to 207,000.

This is the lowest level of claims since November 1969 (when The Beatles’ “Abbey Road” album was #1 in the US)…

…and still no wage pressure…

And is this why the yield curve is collapsing? It’s pricing in the ‘end’ of the cycle, not a renewed cycle?

In your face collusion? So let’s get cracking on the investigation!…Oh wait. Folks, the American public, even though chemtrailed, chlorined and taught complete bullshit in taxpayer paid public schools is not yet this dumbed down. I would submit that they attempted the “coup” a few years too early? “They” are caught, plain and simple.

Russian Collusion, Clinton $tyle
March 27, 2018

Strolling one afternoon near Manhattan’s Sixth Avenue and West 34th Street, I spotted two tourists with their faces nestled in a map. They looked hopelessly lost.

“Can I help you?” I asked.

Thoroughly flummoxed, they pleaded, “Where’s the Empire State Building?”

I pointed straight up, one block east, and said: “It’s right there!”

Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team resemble those hapless travelers. They scour their visitors’ guide in vain for any trace of Team Trump’s alleged Russian collusion. Meanwhile, just steps away, the Clintons’ Russian-collusion skyscraper soars into the clouds.

In fact, former Trump-campaign aide Sam Nunberg said that Team Mueller asked him if he had heard anyone in Trump Tower speak Russian. Apparently, nyet.

Although they started sniffing around in July 2016, neither the FBI’s bloodhounds nor those of Mueller or Congress have detected a whiff of evidence that ties Trump to Russian collusion. Indeed, the House Intelligence Committee interviewed 70 witnesses and reviewed 300,000 documents before wrapping up its Russiagate inquiry last Thursday. As its final report states, “The Committee found no evidence that meetings between Trump associates — including Jeff Sessions — and official representatives of the Russian government — including [Moscow’s] Ambassador Kislyak — reflected collusion, coordination, or conspiracy with the Russian government.”

GOLD – On the weekend, I used this Cycle chart to show that we are due for an ICL.-
clip_image001
GOLD – So this is the waterfall that we experienced on Tuesday.
clip_image002
GOLD – A slight undercut would give us smaller parameters for a swing low in the near future, as shown.  EDIT:  Pre-Market, we have a lower low.
clip_image003
GOLD – That drop on Tuesday looks similar to the Big One Day Drop  in May & one in June.  The one in May did  lead to a dcl ( green arrow) after it stabilized. June sold off. It also looks like the drop in June, so…
clip_image004
GOLD – Could that be a DCL on day 30, and continue like the June drop? Or will this end like the MAY DROP?   Only time will tell.
clip_image005
GOLD —  I see a wedge forming in Gold.   I’d like to see a break out of this wedge upside. That would be bullish.   Daily Cycles Lows are really a bit difficult to label here on the drop. Is this daily cycle 4 or starting a short #5? I have 3 daily s in Boxes, then a 4th long one followed?
clip_image006
GOLD-  MY LONG TERM CONCERN AS MENTIONED: The Bull Run of higher lows has ended.  It may be a shake out to turn people bearish, we’ll examine it after the ICL. The drop now should run stops, but how low will it go?  At least Miners are not dropping in the same manner…
clip_image007
GDX – Miners pretty much held up again, this looks like day 12.   GDX & GDXJ dropped, but several Miners turned green shortly into the selling. This DOES look like a dcl failure in GDX, but we could get a short daily cycle if Gold bottoms.
clip_image008
GDXJ – GDXJ could do a false break down, but at this point, and then recover. It has actually done a false break out higher so far.

WWG1WGA: The Greatest Communications Event In History
July 11, 2018

“Only small secrets need to be protected. The large ones are kept secret by the public’s incredulity.”

 — Marshall McLuhan (HT @LionelMedia)

A time like no other in history

Having applied all of my integrity, intellect and insight to researching the matter, my belief is that we are witnessing right now one of the greatest communications events in history. Indeed, it is arguably the singularly greatest. So, what is this event, and why does it deserves this extraordinary description? The answers are to be found in how the (Western) mass media has been trapped by the most exquisitely constructed double bind.

If I am correct (and many share my view), then it portends the imminent collapse of trust in all mass media services and social media platforms. That is because they are implicated in systemic, widespread and longstanding organised crime — that also encompasses much of our political and financial system. If this is unequivocally demonstrated to be so, then the public will unite in disgust at the media’s treacherous betrayal of its journalistic duties.

Yes, Comey says support the Dems to save his own treasonous ass!

Ex-FBI Chief James Comey Urges Americans To Vote For Democrats In Midterm Elections
July 18, 2018

Former FBI director and long-time Republican supporter James Comey is urging American voters to support Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.

“This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’” Comey said in a tweet late Tuesday.

“All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. Policy differences don’t matter right now. History has its eyes on us.”

Major Alert: Special Report On Today’s Selloff In The Gold Market
July 17, 2018

On the heels of the panic selloff in the gold market, today one of the greats in the business was kind enough to allow his special gold report (that is only sent to his institutional and high net worth clients) to be shared exclusively with King World News readers around the world.  This is not something that is normally allowed and we thank him for his generosity.

July 17 (King World News) – Special report on today’s action in the gold market from Michael Oliver at MSA (www.olivermsa.com):  The final paragraph from our July 11th report:

“If price touches $1240, no doubt the price chart sellers will attempt to drop further and take out the price low that occurred in December 2017 to see what’s on the other side. It’s likely there will be some mini-downside rush of action, probably climax type. But we still consider this trend old for weekly and monthly momentum, and counter-trend to very long-term momentum trend factors.”

By $1240 we meant a second return to it in this decline, after the upticks to over $1260. That return to $1240 was reached on July 13th, back to the low $20 tick, and perhaps now we’re seeing some of the panic selling as a prior obvious price chart low has come out. Our bias is that this is late and exhaustive selling.

Another Billionaire Says We’re Running Out Of Gold
July 10, 2018

A few months ago I sent you a note explaining that major gold discoveries are shrinking.

Simply put, mining companies are no longer finding vast, new deposits of gold to replace their aging mines.

I quoted Pierre Lassonde, the billionaire founder of gold royalty giant Franco-Nevada and former head of Newmont Mining:

If you look back to the 70s, 80s and 90s, in every one of those decades, the industry found at least one 50+ million-ounce gold deposit, at least ten 30+ million-ounce deposits, and countless 5 to 10 million ounce deposits.

But if you look at the last 15 years, we found no 50-million-ounce deposit, no 30-million-ounce deposit and only very few 15 million ounce deposits.

Pierre Lassonde is one of the most well-respected and knowledgeable mining experts in the world. And he thinks we’re reaching ‘peak gold’.

But he’s not alone.

Last month, Rudy Fronk, Chairman and CEO of Seabridge Gold noted:

“Peak gold is the new reality in the gold business with reserves now being mined much faster than they are being replaced.”

Paranoia May Destroy Ya’ – The Collective Response From the Co-Conspirators…
July 17, 2018

At first glance saying: yesterday was a very good day, might sound like spin. However, for those who have been frustrated about the lack of righteous push-back from the executive office; the attacks from the former “spygate” co-conspirators might be just what is needed to trigger President Trump to declassify the underlying material.

Consider the tweets from James Comey (former FBI), John Brennan (former CIA), Sally Yates (former DOJ), and statement from Ash Carter (former DoD).

Ron Paul Warns That When The “Biggest Bubble In The History Of Mankind” Bursts It Could “Cut The Stock Market In Half”
July 16, 2018

When this bubble finally bursts, will we witness the biggest stock market crash in U.S. history? “The bigger they come, the harder they fall” is a well used phrase, but I think that it is very appropriate in this case. From a low of 6,443.27 on March 6th, 2009, we have seen the Dow nearly quadruple in value since the last financial crisis. It has been a remarkable run, and it has lasted far longer than virtually any of the experts anticipated. But what goes up must come down eventually. This stock market bubble was almost entirely fueled by easy money from the Federal Reserve, and now that easy money has been cut off. The insiders can see the handwriting on the wall and they are getting out of the market at a pace that we haven’t seen since 2008. Could it be possible that the day of reckoning is finally at our door?

Of course we have been hearing warnings like this for a very long time. In fact, I have been warning about a market crash for a very long time. Just the other day, one of my readers insisted that if something was going to take place that “it would have happened by now”. In the Internet age, we have been trained to have very short attention spans, but financial bubbles don’t care about the length of our attention spans. They all inevitably come to a bitter end, but they don’t reach that end until they are good and ready.

And without a doubt we are on borrowed time, but meanwhile so many of us that are continually warning about what we are facing are getting a lot of heat for it.

For instance, when Ron Paul told CNBC that the stock market is “the biggest bubble in the history of mankind”, he was strongly criticized for it, but he was 100 percent correct…

The Fed Doesnt Know What It Is Doing
July 16, 2018

US Fed Chairman Jerome Powell seems to be optimistic on the current state of the US economy and has recently said the economy is “in a good place”. His predecessor Janet Yellen had taken interest rates to historically record lows.

clip_image001[5]

“The Fed doesn’t know what it is doing. The central bank throws the interest rate to the lowest level in recorded history. The American central bank has increased its balance sheet by 500 percent in ten years. Historically, it is impossible. So what the American central bank has done is incomprehensible in historical terms. This is like an experiment. I hope it’s going to work. They’re going to find out it’s not going to work.”

Double Whammy: Crooked H Gets Wiped Out Right After Opening Her Deceitful Mouth
July 16, 2018

Well, well well. It only takes a United States President to fly to Helsinki, Finland to find out who took money from the Russians for HER campaign!

Putin accuses Hillary Clinton of accepting $400 million dollars for her campaign! No wonder everyone on the left is having a melt down today! (Video Below)

The Russian President says in this international Clinton tell-all:

“They sent [a] HUGE amount of a money. 400 million as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton.

While that’s a personal case, it might have been legal – the contribution itself. But, the way the money was earned was illegal.

So, we have a solid reason to believe that some intelligence officers, accompanied and guided these transactions. (Video Below)

So, we have an interest of questioning them so that can be a first step.

Jim/Bill,

If $250 trillion in debt were to be normalized, and in my opinion about 5% higher from current levels, then the interest cost alone would add an additional $12.5 trillion!

Now consider the following on top of this:

– Quarter Quadrillion in debt does not include massive global pension liabilities and other unfunded liabilities such as the U.S. social security, medicare and Medicaid

– Debt expansion appears to be accelerating and in Q1,2018 alone, global debt surged by another $8 trillion

So debt expansion will add $32 trillion annualized ($8 trillion per quarter) plus $12.5 trillion in additional funding costs…equaling almost $45 trillion in in increased borrowing per year! (without unfunded liabilities, which are Yuuuuuge).

Yikes!!!

– “The $247 trillion global debt bomb”  Washington Post warn – Debt surges globally and global debt is up almost $150 trillion in just 15 years according to analysis by the Institute of International Finance
– Debt expansion appears to be accelerating and in Q1,2018 alone, global debt surged by another $8 trillion

– After falling marginally in recent years, global debt to GDP increased in Q1, 2018 and global growth is now slowing while global debt increases
–  All major countries and  every strata of society sees debt surge and massive consumer/ household, business, financial and government
– Important to consider the debt surge in context of GDP and since 2003, as a share of the world economy (GDP), the increase went from below 250% of GDP in 2003 to nearly 320% today
– Quarter Quadrillion in debt does not include massive global pension liabilities and other unfunded liabilities such as the U.S. social security, medicare and medicaid

Putin Drops Bomb At Helsinki Presser: Says US Intelligence Helped Move $400,000 To Hillary Campaign!! (Video)

President Donald Trump and President Vladimir Putin held a joint press conference Monday in Helsinki, Finland.

During the press conference Putin dropped a bomb!

Putin accused Bill Browder of donating $400,000,000 to HILLARY CLINTON!!!

(Update: Russian Tass news says the amount was $400,000 – a mistranslation.)

Vladimir Putin: Last year there was one extradition case by the United States… Mueller can use this treaty as an official request to us… in this case this kind of effort should be a reciprical one… For instance we can bring up Mr. Browder… They sent a huge amount of money $400,000,000 to Hillary Clinton!

US Officials Robbed Of Plutonium And Dirty Bomb Materials
July 16, 2018

We wish we could say this is from The Onion but it’s a now viral story that’s but the latest representation of extreme government incompetence in handling deadly radioactive materials. Two Department of Energy security officials tasked with transporting deadly substances left plutonium in the back of their Ford Expedition, where it was promptly stolen from a Marriott parking lot in San Antonio.

And over a year later and after what appears to be a ham-handed investigation that was prematurely shut down perhaps for fear of public embarrassment, authorities still have no clue as to the whereabouts of what the government admits are “bomb-usable materials”.

An investigative report by the watchdog group, the Center for Public Integrity, details a March 2017 “sensitive mission” by two security experts from the Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory to transport dangerous nuclear materials from a nonprofit lab in San Antionio back to a high-secure government facility in Idaho.

This involved specialized equipment, which the report describes as “a plastic-covered disk of plutonium, a material that can be used to fuel nuclear weapons, and another of cesium, a highly radioactive isotope that could potentially be used in a so-called ‘dirty’ radioactive bomb.”

Russia Liquidates Its US Treasury Holdings
July 17, 2018

Last month we showed that as Trade Wars began in April, the world’s central banks and other official institutions dumped more Treasuries than in any month since January 2016, some $48.3BN, perhaps over concerns of others selling first, and precipitating a sharp move higher in yields. Fast forward one month later to May, when according to the latest just released Treasury International Capital (TIC) update, in May the selling of Treasurys by official entities continued, with another $24BN sold in the month of May, when yields continued to rise and eventually hit the 2018 highs of 3.11%.

But while the selling of Treasuries was to be expected – after all someone had to sell aggressively to push yields sharply higher in April and May – the question was who.

What we showed last month, is that contrary to some speculation, it wasn’t Beijing, because after shedding a modest $6BN in April, China actually bought $1.2BN in Treasurys in May, leaving its holdings largely unchanged over the past month.

John Brennan Blasts Trump’s Press Conference As “Nothing Short Of Treasonous”
July 16, 2018

The neocons, not to mention members of military-industrial complex, are furious at the thought of losing Russia as the biggest global bogeyman responsible for tens of billions in bottom line profits to US defense corporations.

Case in point: John Brennan.

Former Obama-era CIA Director – and ubiquitous tweeter of anti-Trump rhetoric – John Brennan just unleashed the most aggressive comment yet on the Trump-Putin Summit, claiming it was an act of treason.

“Why did Trump meet 1 on 1 with Putin? What might he be hiding from Bolton, Pompeo, Kelly, & the American public? How will Putin use whatever Trump could be hiding to advantage Russia & hurt America? Trump’s total lack of credibility renders spurious whatever explanation he gives.”

“Donald Trump’s press performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,'” Brennan tweeted. “It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???”

Russia Plans $50 Billion Investment In Iran’s Oil, Gas Industry
July 13, 2018

By Tsvetana Paraskova

Russia is getting ready to invest US$50 billion in Iran’s oil and gas industry as the two countries continue to seek closer ties, just as the United States is looking to cut as much Iranian crude oil exports from the market as possible.

“Russia is ready to invest $50bn in Iran’s oil and gas sectors,” according to Ali Akbar Velayati, Senior Adviser for International Affairs of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, as carried by the Financial Times.

Velayati was on a visit to Moscow that included a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Military and technical co-operation with Russia is of major importance to Iran,” FT quoted Velayati as saying.

“The discussion focused on Russian-Iranian cooperation issues as well as the situation in the region, including developments in Syria. The parties reaffirmed their commitment to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran’s Nuclear Deal (JCPOA),” the Kremlin said in a brief statement on the meeting on Thursday.

What Are Military Units #26165 And #74455 In Mueller’s Indictment
July 13, 2018

by Scott Humor

Mueller has indicted and demands to arrest Colonel Viktor Netyksho, a commander of the MOD military unit #26165. He also wants to arrest eleven other people whose existence I couldn’t verify yet, but who allegedly work for the MOD units #26165 and #74455:, Boris Antonov, Dmitry Badin, Ivan Yermakov, Aleksey Lukashev, Sergey Morgachev, Nikolay Kozachek, Pavel Yershov, Artem Malyshev, Aleksandr Osadchuk, and Aleksey Potemkin.

The copy of the indictment you can find here. https://www.justice.gov/file/1080281/download

Previously, Mueller indicted some none-existing entities and possibly persons who, like Colonel Viktor Netyksho, didn’t exist in capacity in which Mueller claimed they committed alleged “crimes” against America at the time he claims they committed it. I wrote here that “The Internet Research Agency” existed only on paper.

Recently the attorney for the Concord management, also indicted by Mueller, confirmed my research.

“Washington lawyers Eric A. Dubelier and Katherine Seikaly of the Reed Smith law firm entered an appearance in court only for Concord management, their law firm notified the U.S. Treasury Department that it had been engaged by both Concord entities. Dubelier also asserted that with Concord Catering, U.S. authorities had indicted the “proverbial ham sandwich,” charging a company that he said did not formally exist at the time the government alleged it was active. However, he added, “If they show me that they did exist, then we would probably represent them.”

OPCW Findings Regarding Douma Nerve Gas Attack: Grim Reading For Western Ideologues
July 12, 2018

“One who deceives will always find those who allow themselves to be deceived,” Niccolo Machiavelli wrote.

The famed Renaissance-era philosopher’s sage words describe to a tee the allegation that Syrian forces attacked the city of Douma, 10km northeast of Damascus, with nerve gas on April 7, 2018.

Even more seriously, not to mention condemnatory, is the way this lie – fashioned by Salafi-jihadist extremists, who at the time were struggling to hang on in a part of the country they’d been occupying for the best part of seven years in the face of a determined campaign by the Syrian Arab Army with Russian support to liberate it – was allowed to take the West on a collision course with Russia, when the Trump administration, supported by France’s Emmanuel Macron and Britain’s Theresa May, decided to launch a missile strike against Syria on the back of it.

Not since the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 has the world come so close to WWIII as it did then. And it was only down to astute leadership in Moscow, the willingness of the Russian government to accept a temporary loss of face in refusing to respond to what was an act of naked aggression by Washington and its allies, that disaster was averted.

The findings of the OPCW’s interim report, produced on the back of its on-site investigation into allegations that a nerve gas attack took place in Douma on April 7, make grim reading for the army of morally bereft Western ideologues and their apologists who’ve made a career out of defending the indefensible. Or at least, that is, they should make grim reading.
