Judicial Watch Sues for Coup Documents

Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director of the FBI, fired after being accused of lying by the DOJ Inspector General, is having his day, boasting of what is effectively a coup attempt against President Trump.

We’d like to know more about that, and we have filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice for all records of communications of McCabe, the Office of the Attorney General Jeff Sessions, or the Office of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussing the 25th Amendment or presidential fitness.

Additionally, we are seeking all recordings made by any official in the Office of the Attorney General or Deputy Attorney General of meetings in the Executive Office of the President or Vice President.

We sued after the Justice Department failed to respond to three separate FOIA requests dated September 21, 2018 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:19-cv-00388)). Our lawsuit seeks all written and audio/visual records of any FBI/DOJ discussions regarding the 25th Amendment and plans to secretly record President Trump in the Oval Office.

Gold Market Update
February 19, 2019

Gold has been turned back so many times in recent years from the strong resistance approaching the $1400 level, that most investors have now been well trained, like Pavlov’s dog, to expect it like clockwork, and as we know, it is just when this mindset prevails that gold is likely to surprise the majority by actually breaking out above this level.

Looking at our latest 10-year chart for gold it’s not hard to see why most investors are defeatist about gold’s chances of breaking out. After all it has made 5 more serious attempts to break above this level since mid-2013 and all have failed. Even if they see what we see on this chart, which is gold approaching completion of a giant complex Head-and-Shoulders bottom, they are still skeptical. They will mutter something about “The Cartel” and their power to clobber gold at will by manufacturing an infinite supply of paper shorts, which they then dump on the market when most of us are asleep – isn’t it supposed to be 300 to 1 leverage now, or is it 3000 to 1? – I’ve lost track. Their dastardly objective, we are told, is to maintain confidence in the fiat money system for as long as possible, because they can point to gold’s feeble performance and say “Look, if it’s so bad, why isn’t gold going through the roof?” This negative outlook towards gold is of course promoted by the MSM (mainstream media), one of whose Prime Directives is to keep the average investor on the wrong side of the trade.
