Marc Faber – 3 Reasons Why This Global Collapse Will Be Much Worse Than 2008 – 2009

from KingWorldNews:
What is interesting in the most recent market decline is that the bond market is not acting particularly well. And additional liquidity injection, first of all, it would have to be huge. Asset purchases by the Fed of $80 billion a month, or say $1 trillion over one year, I don’t think would do the trick to really get the bull market (in stocks) going again.

The Terrifying Dark Years Have Begun And People Need To Protect Themselves From What Is Coming

from Kingworldnews:
We are now in September of 2015 and we are likely to enter a period that will shock the world. I expect to see devastating falls in stock markets worldwide, triggered by unexpected events which could be financial or geopolitical….
In Volatile Markets, Is Wealth Preservation King?
In a King World News interview I spoke with the man who predicted the Swiss National Bank would experience staggering losses and that the Fed would also experience massive losses that will destabilize the global financial system! His company is the only one in the world offering a precious metals investment service outside the banking system, with direct ownership and full control by the investor. He has also become legendary for his predictions on QE, historic moves in currencies, and major global events.

James Rickards: “The System is Highly Unstable — If [Confidence] Is Lost, It Can Melt Down Very Quickly”

by Tekoa Da Silva, Sprott Global:

During a time of increasing uncertainty in global financial markets, James G. Rickards, best-selling author and advisor to US Department of Defense and Intelligence Communities, was kind enough to share a few comments.
When asked about People’s Bank of China’s recently announced gold reserve holdings numbers, James noted that, “I’m not saying the People’s Bank of China is lying about their gold [holdings]…But whether to ignore how much gold [affiliates hold] off the books is the question…I think it’s reasonable to estimate at least 3000 tons…[but] there’s reason to think it could be [much] more.”

Trump: Evidence Suggests Obama Protecting ISIS

by Kit Daniels, Infowars:
The fact the Obama administration is leaving known ISIS training camps alone suggests the White House is protecting the terrorist group, according to presidential candidate Donald Trump.
“Well, you [as president] would knock the hell out of the training camps, that one’s a given, and it’s incredible we don’t do it [since] we know where they are,” he said on the Michael Savage Show. “It’s almost like, ‘are we protecting these people?’”
Trump is closer to the truth than he realizes; a secret U.S. government document obtained by Judicial Watch reveals the U.S. and other NATO nations deliberately backed al-Qaeda in Iraq, which morphed into ISIS, and other Islamic extremist groups to overthrow Syrian president Bashir al-Assad.

No Fed Rate Hike Coming, They Never Intended To

from Peter Schiff:

The Failed Moral Argument For A "Living Wage"

With Labor Day upon us, newspapers across the US will be printing op-eds calling for a mandated “living wage” and higher wages in general. In many cases, advocates for a living wage argue for outright mandates on wages; that is, a minimum wage set as an arbitrary level determined by policymakers to be at a level that makes housing, food, and health care “affordable.” All in all, it’s quite a bizarre strategy the living-wage advocates have settled on. It consists of raising the prices of consumer goods via increasing labor costs. Real wages then go down, and, at the same time, many workers lose their jobs to automation as capital is made relatively less expensive by a rising cost of labor. While the goal of raising the standard of living for workers and their families is laudable, it’s apparent that living wage advocates haven’t exactly thought things through.

Common Core Or "Communist Core"

You know things have become bad when... Common core is so wonderful that Lily Tang Williams, a Chinese-American mother of three who grew up in Communist China, says it reminds her of her oppressive, statist nature of her childhood education.

Peter Schiff Warns: Meet QT - QE's Evil Twin

The arrival of Quantitative Tightening will provide years' worth of monetary headwinds. Of course the only tool that the Fed will be able to use to combat international QT will be a fresh dose of domestic QE. That means the Fed will not only have to shelve its plan to allow its balance sheet to run down (a plan I never thought remotely feasible from the moment it was announced), but to launch QE4, and watch its balance sheet swell towards $10 trillion. Of course, these monetary crosscurrents should finally be enough to capsize the U.S. dollar.

STRANGE SIGHTING OVER FLORIDA SKIES: Atlas V? Or Chinese Missile? What Do YOU Think?

from FaceLikeTheSun:

Many people have been sending me footage of video captured of a strange object sen over the skies of Florida. It reminds me of something I’ve seen before. Official reports say it was the ATLAS V, but I hardly believe anything NASA says. Rather, it looks like some kind of missile. If it wasn’t one of ours, it might be from China, or another foreign nation.

For "Fearful, Erratic Markets", China's Reserves Are The New Risk-On/Off Trigger: Goldman

"Following the RMB devaluation some weeks ago, markets have been erratic, fearful that the initial move was the beginning of a larger devaluation cycle that could disrupt global markets. Given how worried markets have been about China, a better-than-expected reserves number holds the potential for risk assets to rally as devaluation fears abate."

Bread & Circuses: The Shady, Slimy & Corrupt World Of Taxpayer Funded Sports Stadiums

Like pretty much everything in the modern U.S. economy, wealthy and connected people fleecing taxpayers in order to earn even greater piles of money is also the business model when it comes to sports stadiums. Many cities have tried to make voter approval mandatory before these building boondoggles get started, but in almost all cases these efforts are thwarted by a powerful coalition of businessmen and corrupt politicians. Sound familiar? Yep, it a microcosm for pretty much everything else in America these days.

What Happens Next?

Just like in 1929, The Dow just dropped 13%, bounced, and is retesting the all the 'experts' comfort a restless investor crowd. So what happens next?

The Season Of The Glitch (Or "Why Retail Investors Have No Chance")

Thousands of investors with stop-loss orders on their ETFs saw those positions crushed in the first 30 minutes of trading last Monday, August 24th. Seeing a price blow right through your stop is perhaps the worst experience in all of investing because it seems like such a betrayal. “Hey, isn’t this what a smart investor is supposed to do? What do you mean there was no liquidity at my stop? What do you mean I got filled $5 below my stop? Wait… now the price is back above my stop! Is this for real?” Welcome to the Big Leagues of Investing Pain.

Here Are The "Unlikely" Cities Bloomberg Says Will Drive The US Economy

Back in May we highlighted a study from Georgetown that endeavored to show which college majors were most likely to help students land high-paying jobs upon graduation. The report was unequivocal. To wit: "STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), health, and business majors are the highest paying." Here's where to look for lucrative STEM employment.

"This Time May Be Different": Desperate Central Banks Set To Dust Off Asia Crisis Playbook, Goldman Warns

"The room to ease policy further, i.e., to adopt counter-cyclical policies, is now much more limited than in the past. To the contrary, in some cases monetary tightening may be needed (despite weaker real business cycles) in order to continue to attract foreign capital, anchor domestic currencies and preserve the integrity of the respective inflation targeting frameworks. Hence, we may soon enter a period of weaker FX and higher policy and market rates: i.e., market dynamics that would resemble more the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis."

Martin Armstrong "Astonished" At Hillary Email Scandal

The most incredible aspect of Hillary’s e-mail scandal is the media’s total dismissal of a simple factHillary DID NOT use the government’s e-mail system — she used her own. She claimed she was unaware that you could have two e-mails on one phone. That alone shows that she is not qualified to be president.

What Does It Mean If The Fed Hikes... And If It Doesn't

Should the Fed decide to raise interest rates, it will be the first Fed hike since June 29th 2006. In the 110 months that have since past, global central banks have cut interest rates 697 times, central banks have bought $15 trillion of financial assets, zero interest rates policies have been adopted in the US, Europe & Japan. And, following the Great Financial Crisis of 2008, both stocks and corporate bonds have soared to all-time highs thanks in great part to this extraordinary monetary regime.  A rate hike with a stroke ends this era.

Weekend Reading: View From The Edge

"Time will tell who is right. But remember that we live in an era where computer trading dominates the American stock market. The "robots" that are making a lot of trading calls aren't sitting around pondering China's economy. They are paying attention to whether stocks fall below key levels. What are those levels? No one knows exactly. But these two metrics are worth watching. If these thresholds are crossed, both computer and human traders will consider it a game-changer point."

No Inflation Friday: The Government Admits Its Own Statistics Are Phony

We can look at official statistics to get a sense of inflation, but these numbers are totally meaningless. When I was a kid, my father earned enough money to support his family with a single salary. We had a house, a car, an occasional vacation, and we never missed a meal. All on one income. But those days are long gone. Now it’s almost obligatory to live in a dual-income household just to make ends meet. The official statistics never paint this picture.

#Wynn-ing? Casino Magnate Joins Trump Campaign

In yet another somewhat surreal twist in The Donald's path to The White House, Fox Business reports the long, sometimes contentious relationship between Donald Trump and Steve Wynn has taken another turn, with the Las Vegas casino magnate serving as an unofficial adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign. Having known each other for 30 years, Fox's Gasparino notes that they have clashed in the past (Wynn on Turmp in 1998 "He's a fool," and Trump on Wynn "he's a very strange guy.") but in recent years both have been critical of the leftward tilt of the Democratic Party and president Obama.

Meanwhile In Submerging Markets: An FX Bloodbath

Things were already bad enough for emerging markets going into August. Persistently low commodity prices, slumping demand from China, depressed global trade, and a “diminutive” septuagenarian waving around a loaded rate hike pistol in the Eccles Building had served to put an enormous amount of pressure on the world’s emerging economies. And then, the unthinkable happened.

Czech Cops Haul Refugees Off Trains To Germany, Writes Numbers On Their Arms In Ink

For most of us, the image of a serial number on a forearm conjures up indelible images of 1940s Germany, but it seems this is not the case for the Czech police, who adopted the controversial practice earlier this week.

Fallout From Petrodollar Demise Continues As Qatar Borrows $4 Billion Amid Crude Slump

Early last month, we noted the irony inherent in the fact that Saudi Arabia, whose effort to bankrupt the US shale space has been complicated by the Fed's ZIRP, was set to opportunistically tap the debt market in an effort to offset a painful petrodollar reserve burn. As Bloomberg reports, Qatar is now doing the same, "raising money from local banks as the slump in oil prices buffets the finances of the Middle East’s largest oil and gas exporters."

An Insider’s Look at The US Mint’s PHYSICAL SILVER SHORTAGE — Sunshine Mint CEO

Since 2007 we’ve TRIPLED our capacity, and it’s still not enough.”
from SilverDoctors:

Sunshine Minting CEO Tom Power Joins Us For a Power Packed Show On the Status of the PHYSICAL Silver Market, Discussing:
  • Power on Current Silver Demand: What we’re seeing is reminiscent of 2009-2011. The surge in demand for ANY PRODUCT is something I haven’t seen…people are clamoring for any product they can get their hands on!
  • Demand Surge STRONGER than 2008-09! Sunshine has TRIPLED capacity since 2007 and its still not enough as the market has exploded!
  • SMI’s CEO Reveals US Mint’s Built Up Reserves of Silver Eagles & Blanks CLEANED OUT in Under Two Weeks

  • Will Any Further Price Weakness Push the Physical Silver Market to Extremes Last Seen in 2008? 

GUEST POST: You Think Premiums Are Big Now???

by Bill Holter, JS Mineset, SGT Report:

Premiums on silver over the past weeks have exploded! Generally speaking, 10-25%+ seems to be the norm and anywhere from two – six weeks delay for delivery. We have talked about the dichotomy between silver being panic “sold” and “shortages” occurring simultaneously. In a free market, this is an impossibility.
What I’d like to do today is get you to think forward or around the corner. If premiums exist today in what has been a declining market, what will happen in a rising market?

Monsanto’s Roundup Herbicide Linked to Brain Cancer in Children

by Christina Sarich, Natural Society:
Scientists from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry have published a damning study for Monsanto. It shows a correlation between parental exposure to the toxic herbicide Roundup and an increased chance of offspring developing brain cancer. Specifically, parents exposed to the toxic stew up to 2 years before giving birth are more likely to see their offspring develop brain cancer. In fact, the chances double.
The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry is a branch of the US Department of Health and Human Services specializing in illnesses caused by toxic substances.

The Best Asset to Own In Today’s “Alice in Wonderland” Economy

from Casey Research:
Major world economies are slipping into recession…
Canada officially entered a recession on Monday. (A recession is when an economy shrinks two quarters in a row.)
Its economy shrunk 0.8% in the first quarter…and another 0.5% in the second quarter.
The oil crash is hitting Canada hard. A barrel of oil costs less than half of what it did a year ago. Oil makes up 27% of Canada’s exports.

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:
It’s early Friday, preceding what could be a very stressful, turbulent weekend for the powers that be.  With stock futures again sharply lower, and the “all-important” NFP jobs report an hour away, their ability to manipulate markets could be significantly compromised if already terrified, mortally fearful market participants “misinterpret” the signals the blatantly rigged report attempts to emit.  In recent years, I’d say “it doesn’t matter”; as no matter what the report says – or how it’s spun – said powers that be have had little trouble controlling markets’ “reaction.”  You know, pushing stocks and Treasury bonds higher, and gold and silver lower.  That said, they clearly lost control of currencies long ago – andcommodities in the past 12 months.  And now that equities, too, are moving “against their wishes”; whilst exploding physical Precious Metals demand threatens to blow their four decade Ponzi scheme to “kingdom come” – perhaps, imminently – I’m not so sure.  Clearly, we are amidst the “manipulators’ last stand” – and today will be a major test of their cumulative abilities.

Silver and S.M.S.

by Gary Christenson, Deviant Investor:

Silver prices have been crushed for over 4 years, especially in the paper futures markets.  The predictable result has been reduced interest in real money – silver and gold.  The media is more focused on Donald Trump, Caitlyn Jenner, and Hillary’s emails – not the reality of exponentially increasing debt, out-of-control spending, failed economic policies, and expensive wars.
Does anyone care that silver and gold have been real money and a store of value for 3,000 years, or that all unbacked paper money has eventually been inflated into worthlessness?  While the central bankers and politicians distract the populace with Donald Trump stories, they prolong the game   …   and the wealth transfers.

Why You Should Carry Money in Your Survival EDC

from Off Grid Survival:
On most prepping websites you will often see people going on and on about the importance of stockpiling precious metals like gold and silver; while these metals might hold some long-term value in a post-collapse world, they provide little if any value during the lead up to the collapse. Think about it; are you really going to buy last minute supplies with a big hunk of gold or silver?
But Cash holds no real value during a collapse….
I’ve heard the argument a thousand times, and while paper currency will definitely lose its value if the entire system collapses, in the lead up to the collapse it will still play an important role in your survival plans. Just look at what happened during the recent economic crisis in Greece.

Medical Bartering

from Survival Blog:
Medical bartering is as old as the hills, yet still alive today. Though you may not have encountered medical bartering in your own community, a quick web search will reveal that the days of paying your doctor with chickens continue into the 21st century.
Of course, when the grid goes down or our currency collapses, you’ll need to find another method of payment for everything. On the other end, with store shelves empty, medical supplies may become a valuable medium of exchange.
When stocking up on medical items for your family, it’s a great idea to purchase extra, currently inexpensive supplies for others who may want or need them in times of crisis.

Statistician Finds Proof That Our Elections Are a Sham

from The Daily Sheeple:

Many of us have suspected for years that American elections are a sham. Not only does it seem like nothing changes no matter how many times we vote the bums out, but sometimes the votes themselves don’t seem to add up. Especially now that we have electronic voting machines, which don’t provide a whole lot of accountability and are notoriously easy to hack.
Fortunately, you can still tell when the votes don’t make sense, even with electronic voting machines. In states like Kansas, where in some counties they use electronic voting machines that also record the votes on paper tapes, there seems to be some blatant inconsistencies with the voting results from the past few elections.
