We are headed for disaster, and the only question is how long the economy can dodge a bullet.
The illusory bubble on Wall Street claims to be at record highs, but the reality, the underbelly, is dark indeed.
Economic expert Peter Schiff speaks on not only the safe haven of gold, and what is at stake in the election, but just how dire the financial consequences will be when the great storm hits and batters everyone.
As Before Its News reports:
If you thought the media was bad before, you won’t believe what they are hiding from you now! Stefan Molyneux is joined by Mike Cernovich of DangerAndPlay.com to discuss the fallout of the the Democratic National Committee Wikileaks scandal at the DNC convention in Philadelphia. Includes: mass anti-Hillary Clinton protests, police state like actions to counter protesting Bernie Sanders supporters, crackdowns on media access, hidden convention walkouts and much much more!
How did that "Hopey Changey" thing work out for you?...
French patriots were taken aback when, following the horrific terrorist attack in Nice, France earlier this month, a prime minister of Paris advised his countrymen to just get used to it. It was time for the country to buckle up and prepare to “live with terrorism.” The hashtag “Je suis épuisé” (I am exhausted) began trending and betraying a somewhat defeated, gonna-lie-down-and-take-it attitude in the heart of Europe.
Germany isn’t France.
Germany came up with a better hashtag to reflect their own nation’s reaction to the now daily occurrence of either outright terrorist attacks or migrant-related acts of violence. A rising cacophony of German voices are now clamoring:
John Kennedy messed with the Banking Bastards...you know how that turned out...
Americans appear to be increasingly pessimistic about the future of America. According to a Real Clear Politics average of recent polls, 68.9 percent of Americans believe that the country is on the wrong track, and only 23.1 percent of Americans believe that we are headed in the right direction. But if you have been listening to the endless parade of political speeches at the Democratic and Republican National conventions, you would be tempted to think that the greatest days for the United States are right around the corner. The politicians keep promising us that better times are coming if we will just make the “correct” choices on election day, but no matter who we send to Washington D.C. things just seem to keep getting worse and worse. Let’s take a look at just a few of the signs that indicate that our country is going in the wrong direction…
It’s Friday, and the astounding long, massively broad list of “PM-bullish, everything-else-bearish” headlines since Wednesday afternoon’s post-FOMC Audioblog is incredible to behold. Which is why it’s never been more obvious that Precious Metals are the imploding fiat Ponzi’s “canary in the coal mine”; “Achilles’ Heel”; and all other similar analogies, metaphors, and comparisons combined. Or, for that matter, the “enemy” of all financial markets – which since 2011 in the West, and 2015 in the East, have been commandeered by desperate, dying governments.
To no avail, I might add, as the average global currency is at, near, or well below previous all-time lows; whilst commodity prices are at multi-decade lows, led by the world’s most important industrial product, crude oil, which is about to breach $40/bbl as I write; sovereign yields are at all-time lows, with many below zero; and aside from “last to go” markets like the blatantly manipulated “Dow Jones Propaganda Average,” most equities have been in bear markets for the past year-plus.
Since its invention in Babylon around 4,000 years ago, money has changed from gold coins, to coins of lesser value; to paper notes/cheques, plastic cards, and finally, silicon chips. Within the next few decades, it is looking more and more likely that there will be no more hard cash (coins/notes) left. By this point, the notion of using physical money will be for many people a distant memory tinged with disbelief. “How did we ever manage something so clumsy and backward?” many will say.
We know people will say this because an increasing number of people are already saying similar things.
In January, 2016, John Cryan, Chief Executive of one of Europe’s biggest banks, Deutsche Bank, predicted that: “Cash, I think, in ten years time probably won’t (exist). There is no need for it, it is terribly inefficient and expensive.”
In March, WikiLeaks launched a searchable archive for over 30,000 emails & email attachments sent to and from Hillary Clinton’s private email server while she was secretary of state. The 50,000 pages of documents span from June 2010 to August 2014; 7,500 of the documents were sent by Hillary Clinton. The State Department released the emails as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request.
