Join Greg Hunter of as he goes One-on-One with Martin Armstrong, cycle expert and author of the upcoming new book “The Plot to Seize Russia, Manufacturing World War III” for 8.9.22.

Here’s the link:  Trump Raid Deathblow to Democracy – Martin Armstrong | Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog

The latest is called “Trump Raid Deathblow to Democracy – Martin Armstrong.”  Last month, legendary financial and geopolitical cycle analyst Martin Armstrong said the time to prepare is now for the chaos that is coming in 2023.  The destabilization of America has been kicked into high gear early with the FBI raid on President Trump’s Florida home this week.  Armstrong explains, “This really is unprecedented . . . . In the United States, we are supposed to have civilized transfer of power.  That’s all coming to an end.  I am not being dramatic here.  From a legal perspective, this is completely unprecedented.  The danger of this is once they have done this, if the Republicans are ever allowed to get back into power, they would only end up doing the same thing to the Democrats. . . . It’s striking a real deathblow to the very idea of a democracy.  We are not, at least we were not until today, someplace like Guatemala where you throw the opposition in jail, kill them or whatever you do.  This is what’s going on.  They are so afraid of Trump running in 2024 that this is just over the top.  Once they did this, there is no end.”

Armstrong says the Democrats are in “dire straits” at the polls–and they know it.  Armstrong thinks the Trump raid by the FBI is an act of desperation, and it will “backfire,” but that’s not the only play in the Democrat playbook for the midterms in November.  Armstrong says, “I have been warned that the Democrats have been maneuvering, and the reason they are allowing all the illegal aliens to come in is they intend to allow them to vote.  You already had the Justice Department go after one state that said you had to prove you are an American to vote, and they filed a suit against them saying that they violated their civil rights.  At that stage of the game, hey, all of Europe, Australia, everybody should just send in a vote.”

Armstrong’s says forget what the mainstream polls are saying about voter support for Democrats and Joe Biden because the real numbers are much lower than the public is told.  Armstrong’s “Socrates” computer program shows Joe Biden has just 12% of support in America.  Maybe this is why Democrats are desperate and realize they have to cheat and break the law to stay in power.  It’s not going to get any better, and the entire world is in the same sinking boat.  Armstrong says, “We basically are sitting here in the middle of the collapse of Western civilization.  It’s socialism that is collapsing because these people have done nothing but borrow money to bribe them to vote for them . . . There is no way to pay it back, and they had no intention of paying it back. . . . Europe is, just forget it.  You have emerging markets collapsing around the world because to sell their debt, they had to put it into dollars.  Sri Lanka, Lebanon, Pakistan, Argentina are falling apart on a global scale.”

Armstrong thinks the dollar will be strong for now and not to expect a collapse in the USA anytime soon because America will be the last man standing.  That said, Armstrong does see the possibility of a “stock market collapse in September.”  Armstrong is also “worried about civil war or extreme civil unrest in 2023 in America.”  Armstrong is seeing a “world war coming in 2024 or after.”

Armstrong also said, “My computer warns that there may not even be an election in America in 2024.  It’s reaching that critical period.  So, this raid on Trump is like throwing down the gauntlet.  Everything is gone.”     

There is much more in the nearly 53-minute interview.

President Biden and the White House continue to repeat his denial from the campaign trial in 2019:

These denials have continued even after an audiotape surfaced showing President Biden leaving a message for Hunter specifically discussing coverage of those dealings.

In a surprisingly longish phone call at over two hours, Chinese President Xi Jinping and President Joe Biden focused on the geopolitical flashpoints of Taiwan and Ukraine on Thursday, speaking by phone for the fifth time. Both sides agreed the call was “candid” and “in-depth”, and concluded by agreeing to stay in touch. However, China state sources are reporting that – in a moment perhaps intent on humiliating the US administration – Xi warned Biden “those who play with fire will get burned.”

In the face of Xi’s firm words on the Taiwan issue, Biden affirmed that the United States does not back Taiwan independence.

Sino-forming of Global South passes point of no return

NEW YORK – China’s exports to the largest economies of the Global South have nearly doubled from pre-Covid levels to a seasonally-adjusted US$70 billion in June 2022 from $38 billion in June 2019.

Several factors have impelled the surge in Chinese exports, but the most important impulse comes from China’s strategic investment in digital and physical infrastructure, ranging from broadband networks in Indonesia and Brazil to power plants in Turkey and railways in Southeast Asia.

As Western nations question the benefits of globalization, China has become the world’s leading globalizer.Sino-forming of Global South passes point of no return – Asia Times

Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with financial writer and precious metals expert Bill Holter of for 7.26.22.

Here’s the link:  Whole World is a Banana Republic – Bill Holter | Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog

The latest is called “Whole World is a Banana Republic – Bill Holter.”  A few months back, precious metals expert and financial writer Bill Holter predicted the economy was going to tank, and today, the U.S. is officially in a recession.  Holter says it’s not just America buckling under enormous debt, but the entire world.  Holter explains, “This is only the start.  They are trying to debate whether or not we are in a recession, but it’s pretty much a lock.  Yes, we are in a recession.  And this is not just the U.S.  This is a global problem. . . . Let me put his into perspective.  If you add up all the global GDP’s, we are roughly $100 trillion.  The problem is there is well over $350 trillion in debt worldwide. . . . When I graduated college . . . anything above 100% debt to GDP was considered a banana republic.  Look where we are today.  Globally, it’s 350% debt to GDP.  What that tells me is the world is a banana republic.”

So, it’s no surprise big money is getting out of fiat currencies like the U.S. dollar.  Less than a month ago, Holter, who is also a precious metals broker for Miles Franklin, brokered what looks like the biggest U.S. silver coin deal in history.  Just the Silver Eagle portion of the deal was 650,000 coins, which was only part of the $50 million deal.  Only $27 million of that could be bought in U.S. incremented silver coins.  (The rest was used to buy gold U.S. coins.)  Holter says that cleared out the wholesale market for U.S. silver coins, including so-called junk silver.  Holter contends, “That shows you how thin it really is.  By the way, a fair portion, 15% or so, was future deliveries from the mint.  So, we basically cleaned up the next four to eight weeks of Silver Eagle deliveries.  They belong to us, and we are still waiting for delivery from the mint. . . . The client wanted U.S. coin.  In the U.S., that is the best form of silver ownership.  We did not touch bars, generics or foreign sovereigns.  So, there is still much more out there to be bought, but how much?   I think $1 billion would buy all the available silver in the U.S.  Think about it.  A billion dollars today is not even the mustard on a ham sandwich. . . . Make no mistake, this deal was a big hit to the inventory . . . of U.S. silver coins. . . . This paper Ponzi scheme is going to come down, and the best place to hide is gold and silver.”

On housing, Holter says it has topped and predicts, “Now, there are no bids, and homeowners are lowering the price.  It was a virtuous cycle to the upside.  Now, it’s reversed, and it will be a virtuous cycle to hell on the downside.  I say hell because there is so much debt outstanding, it will create margin calls across the board.”

Holter is still predicting a Mad Max apocalyptic future that looks more and more like a real possibility.  Holter says, “We have had free and carefree times for the last 40 years.  Now, you are going to see the reverse.  Debt is a two-edge sword, and after 40 years, we are going to see the dangerous side of the sword. . . . There is going to be starvation.  This is going to be unlike anything . . . anyone has even written about from a fictional basis. . . . I’ll be surprised if we make it through this year with the real economy functioning as it is right now.   Supply chains will break down . . . We will have some dire markets leading to . . . market closures and bank closures.”

Join Greg Hunter from as he goes One on One with CV19 truth warrior Steve Kirsch.

Here’s the link:  CV19 Vax Lies – Greatest Trust Destroyer in Human History – Steve Kirsch | Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog

The latest is called “CV19 Vax Lies – Greatest Trust Destroyer in Human History – Steve Kirsch.”  Steve Kirsch was a Big Tech CEO who retired from his job after he was double vaxed for Covid 19.  Not long after, he learned the entire injection and Covid narrative did not match the science or the facts.  The vaccines, for example, were not safe and effective as he was led to believe.  Healthy people he knew were dropping dead after they were vaxed.  So, Kirsch who holds two degrees from MIT, started a quest to learn everything about CV19 and the so-called vaccines used to treat it.  In the process, he became a warrior for truth and posted his cutting-edge journalism and analysis that exposed huge Covid19 lies on his wildly popular site.  Kirsch explains, “I actually look at the science to see if that backs up what the recommendations are, and every time, I am surprised to find out the actual science doesn’t match what we are being told.  This is true for the vaccines, this is true for the masks, and for basically any of the interventions we have been told about.  The ‘six feet rule,’ even something as simple as that, you can’t find a paper that says it’s 6 feet as opposed to 7 feet, or 5 feet or whatever.  It’s much more complicated than that.”

Kirsch says, “Whenever I have an audience, I ask people, ‘How many people in your household died from Covid?’  There will be one hand or two hands.  Then I ask, ‘How many people do you know died from the Covid vaccine?’  The last time I asked that question, it was a 7 to 1 ratio.  7 times more people reported a death from the vaccines.  If they are wrong even by a factor of 10 . . . it is still a disaster beyond proportion. . . . I saw a tweet from a doctor saying how much longer are we going to pretend that these (vax death) incidents are just bad luck?  He is basically saying we know the vaccine is causing this, but we can’t speak out because we will be fired and have our hospital privileges revoked.  We will have our licenses to practice medicine revoked.  This is why you are not seeing doctors who realize this speaking out.  They all have to remain silent.”

Kirsch goes on to say, “This is the biggest catastrophe in American history.  Even a member of the EU parliament recently said this.  She said these vaccines are the biggest disaster ever.”

The massive amount of victims of this vaccine fraud are waking up to the fact they have been poisoned and murdered.   Kirsch says, “They are not going to be happy.  I don’t want to predict what they are going to do, but a lot of people are going to be extremely upset.  I think at minimum, they will not trust anything from the CDC, FDA and NIH ever again.  That’s at a minimum, and they won’t trust the mainstream media either.  They won’t trust representations from Congress because most of the people in Congress are saying get your vaccine.  This will destroy trust in the mainstream media, Congress, in the mainstream medical community, in government agencies and medical science in general.  It will be the greatest trust destroyer in human history, these Covid vaccines.  This is not just in the U.S., this is worldwide.  When people figure out that they were told by their government to take a shot that was way more likely to kill them than to save them, people are going to be livid.  It won’t just be a few people that will be livid, it will be a lot of people.”

I have no idea who to credit other than Tom Petty?

The Nightwatchman Once upon a time, the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.  Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.”  So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job. Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?”  So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.

Then Congress said, “How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?”  So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people.  One was to do the studies, and one was to write the reports.

Then Congress said, “How are these people going to get paid?”  So they created two positions: a time keeper and a payroll officer, then hired two people.

Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for all of these people?”  So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer and a Legal Secretary.

Then Congress said, “We have had this command in operation for one year, and we are $918,000 over budget, we must cut back.”  So they laid off the night watchman. 

NOW slowly, let it sink in.

Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter.  Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY during the Carter administration?

Anybody?  Anything?  Anyone?  No?  Didn’t think so!

Bottom line is, we’ve spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency, the reason for which very few people who read this can remember!


It was very simple, and at the time, everybody thought it very appropriate.

The Department of Energy was instituted on 8/04/1977, TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ONFOREIGN OIL.

Hey, pretty efficient, huh?


(THIS IS WHERE YOU SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY, “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?”) 34 years ago, 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports.  Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports.

Ah, yes — good old Federal bureaucracy.

Join Greg Hunter of as he goes One-on-One with Martin Armstrong, cycle expert and author of the upcoming new book “Manufacturing World III,” for 7.19.22.

Here’s the link:

 2023 Will Be Year from Hell – Martin Armstrong | Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog

The latest is called “2023 Will Be Year from Hell – Martin Armstrong.”  Legendary financial and geopolitical cycle analyst Martin Armstrong says the time to prepare is now for what is coming in 2023.  Armstrong’s Socrates computer program is predicting “2023 will be the year from Hell.”  Armstrong explains, “Our computer is predicting a ‘war cycle’ that hits in 2023, but that is also civil unrest.  So, you are looking at revolutions and etc. because of inflation.  Our projection on oil is that it is going to go up dramatically into 2023.  It’s going to be the same thing, I think, for gasoline prices.  This is just not over yet.  The euro looks like death warmed over. . . . Our computer is projecting the continued decline of the euro and rising commodity prices.  With these sanctions on Russia, you just had the leader of Hungary say Europe is committing suicide.  The sanctions are hurting Europe more than they are hurting Russia.  This is like a shot to the lung.  They can’t even breath at this stage.”

Armstrong says you are not going to have to wait until next year to see extreme stress in the financial system.  Armstrong is seeing financial upheavals coming in the August and September time frame.  So, the economic pain is already here and getting worse, especially in Europe.  Armstrong says, “I think you are going to see this come to a head. . . . It’s definitely tanking more anyway. . . . What makes things even worse for the world is the dollar going up and not down.  This is because you had all these emerging markets issue debt in dollars. . . . They were borrowing in dollars because it was a cheaper interest rate, and they had no concept of the foreign exchange risk. . . . This happened in Australia.  The currency swings, and, now, suddenly you owe 20% more. . . . You had the same thing with all these emerging markets. . . . Now, the dollar is going up and you are seeing bank runs.”

Armstrong says not only is the euro dramatically declining, but the euro bonds are being shunned by U.S. banks.  This is another bad financial sign for the EU.  Armstrong says, “All these things are a real crisis.  I can tell you that speaking to the top three banks in New York City, they refuse to accept any European sovereign debt as collateral—period.  That is what started the whole repo crisis in 2019.”

So, we are entering into a debt crisis with the EU financial system in the crosshairs.  Armstrong says, “This is why they are pushing for war. . . . They think they can create a new monetary system, and to do so, they need war.  They think they can keep it just conventional.  Then the United Nations can emerge as the white knight and the peacemaker.  Therefore, we get another Bretton Woods.  You can redesign all the currencies and when you do that you wipe out all the debt.  That is what is on the agenda. . . . There is no way they can get out of this other than default.  If they default, they are worried about millions of people storming the parliaments of Europe. . . .This is really a tremendous financial crisis that we are facing.  They have been borrowing year after year since WWII with zero intention of paying anything back.”          

There is much more in the nearly 40-minute interview.

Great and Wonderful Thursday Morning Folks,

      It seems the tamp was turned off once Comex opened yesterday with this mornings trades still showing no tamp, with December Gold now priced at $1,736.60, up $8.80 and at the high, with the low at $1,724.90. Silver leads the percentages with its last Red trade made at $18.645, up 38 cents and at the high with the low down at $18.32. The US Dollar Index has also turned with its trade now at 109.36, down 46.7 points and at the low with its high at 109.885. Of course, all this couldn’t happen until ICE re-opened yesterday evening, before Comex starts, London stops, with more evidence coming out on the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago sloppiness, written by “special master” U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, with more FBI whistleblowers coming out and revealing Director Wray personally removed concerns raised by agents on politicization of the agency from Final Report, and after another judge orders Dr. Fauci & White House Press Sec. to reveal 230BigTech communications over covid. The Judges-Day is coming.

      Under Venezuela’s currency Gold added 184.55 Bolivares at 13,806.78 with Silver adding 4.91 more at 148.28 Bolivares. In Argentina, Gold’s value increased by 3,795.46 Pesos at 244,408.91 with Silver’s increase totaling 92.85 A-Pesos at 2,624.93. Under the Turkish Lira, Gold’s last trade happened at 31,681.91 proving a 447.59 overnight gain with Silver reaching  340.29, jumping 11.60 T-Liras. Even in Russia, Gold rallied 1,099.35 Rubles over yesterday at 105,754.44 with Silver adding 33.98 Rubles at 1,135.76. I know how difficult it is to wait for these swings to show up under the US Dollar and its Index, but they will.

      September Silver’s Delivery Demands now stand at 318 fully paid for contracts waiting for receipts with a 7-lot Volume up on the board that traded in between $18.455 and $18.29 with the last swap, during London’s time, at the high, up 31.8 cents so far today. Yesterday’s full day of delivery activity happened in spread trade fashion (no price) but Comex did close the day out at $18.137, for a 34.2 cent gain on the day that had a total of 53 new buys that helped reduce the demand count by 32 contracts with the balance supposedly getting receipts. Silver’s Overall Open Interest shows a 665 contract pull leaving us a total of 137,721 Overnighters to trade against reality.

      September Gold’s Delivery Demands now stand at 1,773 fully paid for contracts in wait of receipt with a 438-lot Volume up on the board that traded in between $1,718.20 and $1,716.60 with the last buy at the low, for a $1.30 gain, so far today and while the papers push the prices higher. Yesterday’s full day of ICE/Comex deliveries happened in between $1,715.20 and $1,694.70 with the last buy at the high, after Comex closed its day out at $1,715.30 that had a total of 651 new buys that helped elevate the demand count by 102 contracts with the balance supposedly getting receipts. This is odd, September is a primary delivery month for Silver, yet Gold seems to have taken over, a true curiosity to noodle over. Gold’s Overall Open Interest proves a 2,275 contract pull leaving a total of 464,318 Overnighters to trade against the demands coming out everywhere.

      The highly anticipated theatrical film “My Son Hunter” has opened to rave reviews and leftist panic, as the movie’s trailer has crested to over 4.5 million cross-platform views and climbing. Which makes me wonder if the top heads of the FBI and DOJ are going to see this epic movie, so they can make an attempt to say none of it is true? “A poll conducted after the election found that 17 percent of Biden voters would not have voted for him if they had known about the “Laptop from Hell.” Even now, two years later, 63 percent of likely voters still believe the laptop story is important, according to a recent poll.”

      Portland, Oregon, is in such bad shape with their current leadership that business owners have been closing up shop and selling at a loss just to get out of the place. I wonder how bad it is all around? We know Californians have left in droves, but what about the other places where the Dems run free and where the Police were threatened with defunding?

      Project Veritas BUSTS Democrat US Senate candidate saying treat white people ‘like shit’. “You oughta know who you’re dealing with, you gotta treat them like shit, that’s the only way they’ll respect you.”

      Whoever is helping out the Democratic Party with everything they’ve been doing over the years, I encourage them to continue. Don’t change a thing! The Red Wave is coming and it appears “Operation Let Them Speak” is still an open exercise and sweeping up new and living voters everywhere.

      Find that smile, it’s too easy to be negative when the world is changing all around and from the grassroots up. The only thing the Democrats can do as of now, is try and keep this midterm from happening, and I think it’s way too late for that.

      It appears the tampers are back, giving us cheaper prices. So, keep on piling on the shiny, make that smile a broad one, and enjoy your day. As Always …

Stay Strong!

Great and Wonderful Wednesday Morning Folks,

      Once again the tamp is on with Gold’s last trade at $1,712.40, down 50 cents after hitting a low of $1,701.70 with the high to beat at $1,718.20. Silver is up 10.5 cents at $18.015 and recovering from the dip to $17.74 with its high to beat at $18.155. The all mighty Banana Dollar continues to amaze with its last calculation set at 110.66, up 45.1 points after hitting a high of 110.775, another multi-year high, with the low at 110.16. Of course, all this started yesterday, once the ICE session re-opened, before Comex starts, London stops, after the Dutch Farmers forced out the WEF member and agricultural minister Henk Staghouwer over his radical climate agenda that seeks to destroy their livelihoods, and after Missouri and Louisiana sue the Federal Government, for allegedly colluding with big tech to silence non-state-sponsored opinions about COVID and masking (among other things) on many social media platforms, as a violation of the First Amendment, something the Feds should be protecting.

      In Venezuela, Gold’s last trade was at 13,622.23, down 18.49 Bolivares over yesterday’s quote with Silver’s last buy price at 143.37, down 1.34 Bolivares. In Argentina, Gold pulled back 886.46 Pesos at 240,613.45 with Silver pulling back 30.13 at 2,532.08 A-Pesos. Over in Turkey, Gold lost 175.61 Liras at 31,233.32 with Silver down 4.54 T-Liras at 328.69. Finally, the Russian Ruble has Gold pegged at 104,655.09 proving a 733.97 gain with Silver’s last buy at 1,101.78 Rubles, a 16.87 loss.

      September Silver’s Delivery Demands now stand at 350 fully paid for contracts waiting for receipts with a 7-lot order made in spread trade fashion (no price). Yesterday’s full day of delivery activity happened in between $18.105 and $17.79 with the last buy at the low, after Comex closed its day out at $17.795 for a 1.9 cent gain on the day that had 100 new purchases which helped reduce the demand count by 137 contracts with the balance supposedly getting receipts. Silver’s Overall Open Interest shows a 302 contract gain giving us an early morning total of 138,386 Overnighters to trade against the physicals, as the warehouses are being drained, as is proven within the Comex stats.

      September Gold’s Delivery Demands now stand at 1,671 fully paid for contracts in wait of receipt with a 436-lot Volume up on the board that traded in between $1,703.60 and $1,694.70 with the last buy at $1,700.20, down 20 cent so far today. Yesterday’s full day of ICE/Comex physical purchases happened in between $1,717.40 and $1,699.70 with the last buy at the low, after Comex closed its tamp out at $1,700.40 for a $9.40 loss on the day that had a total of 697 new buys that helped reduce the demand count by 121 contracts with the balance supposedly getting receipts. Gold’s Overall Open Interest shows a 2,984 overnight gain giving us an early morning total of 466,593 Overnighters (which are longs and shorts combined) to trade against the physicals. It’s becoming apparent that Gold’s OI is being used to help push Silver’s prices lower. It just may be no commercial is willing to sell Silver contracts against a shortage of supply.

      Michigan Patriots created a new group called Michigan Citizens for Election Integrity. They have reviewed thousands of hours of surveillance videos in their state and gave their findings to The Gateway Pundit from 19 Detroit drop boxes for the November 2020 election. These videos covered a time span of 24 hrs a day for 37 days. You can see in the videos what 2000Mules did when the mules photographed themselves at each drop box in order to get paid. There are 2 parts to this story, the first (the above link) was posted on the 4th    and the next part (this link) was posted yesterday.

     Trump posted this last night; The fired FBI Agent who was walked out of the FBI Headquarters Building two weeks ago, and who said, falsely, to Facebook and the Media that the Laptop from Hell was Russian Disinformation, has been a greater source in convincing people that the 2020 Presidential Election was Rigged than even the tapes of millions of ballots being stuffed into the voting machines – “2000 Mules.”So they spy on my campaign, Rigged & Stole the Election, and go after me for doing nothing wrong. Only in America!!! I’m so thankful 45 supported the 2nd Amendment.

      Things are turning around alright. It’s not as hard to see as before because our voices are protected under the First Amendment and the states are going after the Obama-230BigTech machine. Here’s one brave liberal that actually went to a Trump rally, and he was surprised no one beat him up. Samuel Donner, who does the “100 New Friends” video series on TikTok, was the one, as I expect more libs to wake to the idea they’ve been bamboozled by the idiots they trusted on a monitor.  

      Nations are waking, states are challenging, yet Silver and Gold are still being tamped. The perfect visual is a fat man floating in the water holding under him a big beach ball as a floating device, until he loses his balance. Equilibrium is coming, as all things mentioned, over the years here at JSMineSet, become more easily seen by the masses. Keep piling on the shiny, don’t forget to stock up on foods and what-nots that you and your family will need in order to go thru a temporary shutdown, and keep your faith up front, as a shield. As always …

Stay Strong!

Where have you heard this number before?  In reality, $50.000 is far too low …

That's a twenty seven fold increase in price.  
For those who believe this is an outrageous move, simply look at the last historical event that moved gold: 1971 when the U.S. went off the gold standard.
Gold rose twenty fold from $40 to $800.
