Hillary Clinton Slams Conspiracy Theorists with a Conspiracy Theory of Her Own

from The Anti Media:
Hillary Clinton’s recent “alt right” speech marks a new and dangerous low in what has become race to the bottom – and, should she be elected, it has ominous foreign policy implications as well.
Alarmed that Trump is reaching out to the African-American community, Mrs. Clinton tried to make the case that the GOP candidate is a apologist for such groups as the Ku Klux Klan and an obscure amalgam she dubbed the “alt right.” As she named this latter group, there was a significant silence, a pause in the cheering: perhaps her audience thought she was having a senior moment of the intestinal variety.

The Election Has Been Hacked: The Dismal Reality Of Having No Real Electoral Choices

Politics is a game, a joke, a hustle, a con, a distraction, a spectacle, a sport, and for many devout Americans, a religion. It is a political illusion aimed at persuading the citizenry that we are free, that our vote counts, and that we actually have some control over the government when in fact, we are prisoners of a police state. In other words, it’s a sophisticated ruse aimed at keeping us divided and fighting over two parties whose priorities are exactly the same so that we don’t join forces and do what the Declaration of Independence suggests, which is to throw the whole lot out and start over.

Do Newly Built Skyscrapers Signal The Top Of The Stock Market?

In the market, extreme optimism results in price bubbles. One of the real-life manifestations of extremely positive social mood is the construction of enormous buildings. Market tops and skyscrapers often seem to emerge simultaneously, because both phenomena are the result of the illusion of infinite prosperity. But extreme psychological conditions do not last very long...

An Academic Tries To Explain The Yield Curve, Says "Gloom" Is Irrational

To the academics, “gloom” is irrational and thus requires translation into math to become somehow backwards explanatory for why the economy that “should be” isn’t. In the actual economy, “gloom” is properly called reality. In this world, people know all-too-well that jobs disappeared during and after the Great Recession and never came back. No amount of asset price manipulation can possibly make up that difference. This math is finally welcoming economists to that long run, a place their patron saint, Keynes, said didn’t exist.

China Bans Low Income 'Terrorists' From Guangzhou; Those Willing To Buy Fancy Hotels Still Welcome

Apparently poor people from Pakistan, Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Afghanistan are no longer allowed at low-end hotels in Guangzhou, China.  That said, all are still welcome at higher-end resorts.

Gold Withdrawals From The NY Fed Accelerate, Hit 388 Tons Since 2014

While central banks assure the population that there is nothing to worry about when it comes to paper money, which may or may not soon be banned if certain Harvard economists have their way, they have been quietly accelerating their withdrawals of gold from the biggest centralized depository of global gold in the world: the New York Federal Reserve.

Debt, Deficits & Economic Warnings

The processes that fueled the economic growth over the last 30 years are now beginning to run in reverse, and when combined with the demographic shifts in the U.S., the impact could be far more immediate and prolonged than the media, economists and analysts are currently expecting...It is simply a function of the math.

Michael Lewitt: "We're In The Late Stages of Ponzi Finance"

“They’ve tried to solve the debt crisis by printing trillions of dollars of more debt, and somehow they expect the economy to grow under the weight of those burdens. We’re just borrowing new money to pay back old money. I would say that we’re in the late stages of Ponzi finance.”

Stanley Fischer's Bizarre Justification For Negative Rates

"Well, clearly there are different responses to negative rates. If you’re a saver, they’re very difficult to deal with and to accept, although typically they go along with quite decent equity prices. But we consider all that and we have to make trade-offs in economics all the time and the idea is the lower the interest rate the better it is for investors."

Oil Extends Losses After Big Distillates Inventory Build

After last week's surprise crude build (biggest in ~4 months) and builds across the entire complex, API reported a crude build of 942k barreles (just shy of expectations of +1.5mm) and while Cushing and Gasoline saw draws, Distillates saw a major 3mm barrel build (+275k exp).

Obama Admits 10,000 Syrian Refugees: This Is Where They Are Headed

Yesterday, the White House announced that the US had met President Obama’s goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country; it did so ahead of schedule.  So where are they going: the top state destination for refugee influx are the states of Michigan and California.

Is Clinton's Lead Over Trump As Large As Advertised?

There seems to be a lot of smug certitude that Trump is definitely destined to lose the election. We are not so sure. At the very least we would think that the race between Trump and Clinton is far tighter than it appears according to recent polls. This bring us back to a point we mentioned last week: the market is not pricing in the “risk” of an election upset.

How High Will Silver’s Value Increase Compared To Gold During The Next Crash? Check Out These Charts

by Steve St. Angelo, SRSRocco Report:
Many investors believe the value of silver will surge much higher in percentage terms compared to gold during the next financial and economic crash. I happen to belong to that savvy group of silver investors, and for good reason. If we look at the charts below, the data proves that silver is certainly the more undervalued precious metal asset. Thus, it will likely make silver one of the best investment strategies of a lifetime.
While some readers may say that this is just more hype, the fundamentals provide us a pretty clear picture. That is, if we are able to understand the entire system and how things are likely to unfold.

by Liam Stack, New York Times:

A white nationalist group called White Lives Matter, which calls itself an opponent of the Black Lives Matter movement, has been declared a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that tracks extremist groups in the United States.
“The White Lives Matter website says their movement is dedicated to the preservation of the white race.

This is standard white supremacist stuff.”

from The Daily Bell:

Anthropocene: Planet Earth has entered new man-made epoch, experts say … dubbed the Anthropocene because of the extent of humanity’s impact on the planet.  An international working group set up to consider the question voted by 34 to zero, with one abstention, that the Anthropocene was real in a geological sense.  –UK Independent

by Steve Watson, Infowars:

What The Media Did Not Report: Here Is The "Ignored" Part Of Kaepernick's Speech

Norway Raids Sovereign Wealth Fund To Cover Government Expenses

Norway's $890 billion sovereign wealth fund has long acted as a backstop for global equity markets due to it's ability to measure risk over the long-term.  But that may be coming to an end as Deputy Governor at Norway’s Central Bank, Egil Matsen, warns that withdrawals are "relevant for how we think about the risk-bearing capacity of the fund."


Why Millennials Can't & Won't Grow The US Out Of Trouble



As the Millennials are making their way into adulthood, countless economists and nervous Boomers have pinned their hopes on this generation to kickstart the moribund US economy.  There are 3 basic sources of consumptive growth in a nation with twin budget and trade deficits... population growth, wage growth, and/or credit growth and population growth the greatest among these to drive greater demand.  So, the growth of the population, and the Millennials in particular, is worth a pretty close look.


Record Low Yields On Deck? Abe Advisor Urges Japan To Buy US Treasuries



 "Japan's monetary authorities should intervene in the currency market not to change the yen's general course but to discourage speculators" Koichi Hamada, an emeritus professor of economics at Yale University, told Reuters in an interview. "If Japan's currency intervention is considered manipulation of exchange rates, BOJ buying of foreign bonds is an option for the same objective in a moderate form."


US Home Prices Suffer 3rd Consecutive Decline For First Time Since 2012

"The Americans Give Us Nothing": France Effectively Kills TTIP, Calls For End To Negotiations



The French trade minister on Tuesday called for an end to trade negotiations between the European Union and the U.S., the firmest sign yet of opposition in Europe to what would be the most ambitious trade deal in decades. Matthias Fekl said on French radio that “France no longer politically supports these negotiations,” adding that “The Americans are giving us nothing. This is not how allies should be negotiating.”


Germans "Lose Faith In Banks", Rush To Buy Safes

Fed's Fischer Speaks, Says Rate Decision Not "One And Done" As He "Takes Markets Into Account"



The most anticipated Fed speaker of the day, and perhaps the week, was Fed vice chairman Stanley Fischer, who caused ripples on Friday with his follow up speech on Friday, and who spoke moments ago on Bloomberg TV, although judging by the modest pick up in Treasuries, the market's interpretation is that Fischer did not make any particularly hawkish announcement. Among the thing he said is that "the work of the central bank is never done, and I don’t think you can say one and done and that’s it."


Futures Flat, Global Stocks Higher As Dollar Resumes Rise



The quiet overnight market had been focused on the upcoming comments by Stanley Fischer, who is set to give a Bloomberg TV interview at 6:30am ET, where he was expected to expand on his recent hawkish comments.

As the FT reported first yesterday, the EU has judged that the Irish government granted Apple "undue tax benefits" and moments ago announced the specific size of the penalty when it ordered the tech giant repay up to €13 billion ($14.5 billion) plus interest. According to the EU, the Irish deal slashed Apple taxes from 2003 to 2014, and allowed Apple to avoid tax on almost all EU profit.

When 'Whatever It Takes' Fails: 37% Of Italians Give Up Job Hunt As Welfare State Grows



With France calling for the EU's budget limits to be lifted and everyone breaking every rule of fiscal responsibility - because Draghi has killed the market's signal - the fear of ever deepening deficits is (for now) removed. Enabling governments to do "whatever it takes" to get re-elected, because reforms are vote-killers, has incentivized an ever-growing group of Europeans to simply give up the job search... with Italians at the top of the list...


Greek 'Thought Police' Prosecute Bishop For (Accurately) Calling 'Refugees', "Illegal Migrants"



Greece is presently in the "coalmine" of an endless economic and immigration crisis. This month, for the first time, there was a request to activate an anti-racist law, passed in September 2014, against a Greek citizen who also has institutional status. The government asked the district attorney to prosecute the Bishop of Chios Island, Markos Vasilakis, because he dared to say, during a sermon, that the thousands of people who recently arrived from Turkey on the island of Chios are illegal migrants, and not Syrian refugees.


HuffPo "Revoked Publishing Access" Of Journalist After 'Hillary Health' Story: "It's Orwellian...I'm Scared"



"I've honestly never seen anything like this.  It's frankly chilling.  I'm a little scared.  I'm doing this video also to say, I'm not suicidal right now; I am not a particularly clumsy person; I don't own a car at the moment.  So if I'm to slip in the shower over the next couple of days or something silly like that you have to really employ probability and statistics here." 


ARE EMERGING MARKETS ABOUT TO SWITCH US TREASURIES FOR SDR BONDS?

by JC Collins, Philosophy of Metrics.com:
The first issuance of SDR denominated bonds in the Chinese market is being implemented by the World Bank. Let that sink in for a moment. The World Bank, the great bastion of the western banking elite, will be providing SDR bonds specifically for the Chinese market. This is a major defeat for all of those who repeatedly promoted the idea that wealthy interests within China were attempting to overthrow the western banking structure or implement a competing system.
A second issuance of SDR bonds will take place through the China Development Bank. The purpose of both issuances is multiform.

Can Americans Overthrow The Evil That Rules Them? — Paul Craig Roberts

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:
Paul Wolfowitz and the lies that he told in the high government positions that he held are responsible for a massive number of deaths and massive destruction in seven countries. Wolfowitz has announced his vote for Hillary Clinton. Does this make you feel reassured?
The real surprise would have been Wolfowitz’s announcement in favor of Donald Trump. So why was what was expected news?
Trump has said that he doesn’t see any future in the conflict Washington has initiated with Russia, and Trump questions the point of NATO’s continuing existence.

Your Facebook Page Could Land You In a FEMA Camp

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
Against my better judgment, I often put my articles on Facebook. Lately, Facebook has been taking down my posts, particularily on topics related to World War III. One of my readers counted 14 sites saw my articles disappear. It is too late for me, but for most of you, you should consider not participating on Facebook. It is one more intelligence gathering tool designed to separate the sheep, from the independent thinkers!
No matter how annoying Facebook’s censors may be, there are real dangers associated with posting and reading on Facebook.

The Pro-Hillary Supporter Challenge

from BATR:
As Labor Day approaches, the serious presidential campaign heats up. This cycle presents a truly clear and definitive choice. Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of the crony establishment. Donald Trump is the antithesis of the status quo and business as usual. Forget all the distractions. It is the final grudge match: Globalism One World Order vs. America First Populism and National Sovereignty. BREAKING ALL THE RULES would like to dare any staunch admirer of Hillary Clinton to present their case why she deserves to become POTUS.
BATR will post any serious and well reasoned argument that offers positive factors why she deserves to be President. Identify the policies she would advocate and explain why such programs or administrative initiates will improve government and protect our constitutional republic.

COULD THE INTERNET BE SET TO BE SHUT DOWN ON THE EVE OF JUBILEE, OCTOBER 1ST?

by Jeff Berwick, The Dollar Vigilante:
Ever since we caught on to the Shemitah timetable that Jonathan Cahn had discovered, we’ve discovered clue after important clue about the potential timetable being followed by the globalists towards creating a New World Order.
Christine Lagarde, with her “magic number 7” numerology speech caught our interest. Then, William White of the IMF talking about how a debt jubilee was coming which will wipe out most paper assets also got our attention.
And, we discovered that the Jubilee Year, also called the Super Shemitah, ends on October 2nd of this year.

US-NATO-Turkey Invasion of Northern Syria: CIA “Failed” Turkey Coup Lays Groundwork for Broader Middle East War?

by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research:
In mid-July, President Erdogan pointed his finger at the CIA, accusing US intelligence of having supported a failed coup directed against his government. Turkish officials pointed to a deterioration of US-Turkey relations following Washington’s refusal to extradite Fethullah G├╝len, the alleged architect of the failed coup.
Erdogan’s Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag was categorical:
“If the US does not deliver (Gulen), they will sacrifice relations with Turkey for the sake of a terrorist” 
Public opinion was led to believe that relations with the US had not only deteriorated, but that Erdogan had vowed to restore “an axis of friendship” with Moscow, including “cooperation in the defence sector”. This was a hoax.

Central Banks Are Buying Mining Shares – VERY BAD!!!!

by Jeff Nielson, Bullion Bulls:

For the past 6 1/2 months I have been warning readers that the banking Crime Syndicate (and all their political and central bank puppets) have been manufacturing a Fake Rally in the precious metals sector. They have been marching prices higher themselves, just so they can “crash” these markets much, much harder — when the Next Crash arrives.
Warning: precious metals being set up for CRASH
I have presented evidence of this Fake Rally in numerous forms over this period of time. However, this new evidence is (in some ways) the most-persuasive yet.

Adopt A Gold-Backed Dollar? This Is What Happened The Last Time The World Tried

by Ben Steil, GoldAndLiberty:
“The dollar and gold are synonymous,” Harry Dexter White, the architect of the Bretton Woods international monetary system, told Congress in 1945. “There is no likelihood that . . . the United States will, at any time, be faced with the difficulty of buying and selling gold at a fixed price freely.”
Under the Bretton Woods system, currencies were tied to the U.S. dollar at a fixed rate, and the dollar was in turn tied to gold at $35 an ounce. Today there is much nostalgia about Bretton Woods — a belief that the quarter-century from 1946 to Aug. 15, 1971 (when the system collapsed) was a golden era of monetary stability. But the reality was very different.
