by Geoffrey Grider, Now The End Begins:
George Soros has repeatedly called 1944 “The Best Year of his Life.” 70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary, nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year, yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect.

An "Amazed" Bill Gross Slams Trump: "His Tenure Will Be Damaging"

"I am amazed, at what American voters have done to themselves: in voting to deny Hillary Clinton the Henhouse, they "unwittingly" (lack of wit), let Donald Trump sneak in the side door. His tenure will be a short four years but is likely to be a damaging one for jobless and low-wage American voters."

Can Trump End The War On Coal?

Two things to look for in the coming days: is the war on coal a priority for the new administration’s first 100 days? We would bet not. Second, we would expect a gradual softening in rhetorical tone.

Following API's big builds in Crude, Cushing, and Distillates, DOE reported notable inventory builds across the entire energy complex with a bigger than expected crude build sparking initial selling pressure in WTI. Every segment was 'worse' than expected (from a price perspective) but the machines have decided it is time to panic buy after another spurious OPEC headline.

"Dump Trump" - "Embarrassed" Residents Win Fight To Remove Trump Name From Luxury Buildings

Twitter Purges Dozens Of "Alt-Right" Accounts

This is the biggest 2 year decline in industrial production since August 2008...

DryShips Halted After Soaring 1,500% In Five Days

After soaring by 1,500% in the past five days for reasons that remain largely unknown, insolvent dry bulk carrier DryShips managed to sucker in a lot of retail investors, a process which continued earlier this morning when the stock was up another 40%. However, those same retail investors may find themselves the proverbial terminal bagholders, stuck unable to take profit as a result of a T12 trading halt in the stock which was requested by Nasdaq following an "information request."

Why All Eyes Are Suddenly Back On The Bank Of Japan

"If the BoJ sticks to defending zero in a world where the US is likely to increase fiscal spending then you could make an argument that there is full blown helicopter money except that the BoJ is flying the copter over the US and may be about to become the new US government’s best friend."

Trump Considering Ted Cruz For Attorney General

Donald Trump is considering nominating Texas Senator Ted Cruz to serve as U.S. attorney general, Bloomberg reports citing a person familiar with the matter. The choice would come as a surprise after Cruz called Trump a "pathological liar", a "narcissist", "serial philanderer", "utterly amoral" and a "sniveling coward" during a vicious primary race between the two republicans.

How Trump Will Impact The European Union

Unsurprisingly, in Brussels people are not thrilled with Donald Trump’s election as new American President. EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker reacted by saying “We will need to teach the president-elect what Europe is and how it works”, but it seems more likely it is Europe that must learn about a number of new political realities. Here’s an overview of what it all means for the EU27...

Trump’s Opponents See Normal Americans as Deplorables — Paul Craig Roberts

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:
guess we have all noticed that the holier-than-thou groups who whined that Trump wasn’t going to accept the outcome of the election refuse to accept it themselves.
Because I was critical of the George W. Bush regime, the liberal-progressive-leftwing and homosexual/transgendered rights groups have me on their mailing lists.
And it is unbelievable. The entirety of “the other America” refuses to accept the people’s decision. They think that their concerns are more important than the concerns of the American people, who they regard as nothing but a collection of racist homophobic rednecks.
Unless they provoke him beyond reason, Trump is not going to bother any of these people.

Dear US Mint, We Gave You The FOIA Funds, Now Give Us The Fort Knox Audit Documents!

by Koos Jansen, Gold Seek:
As readers might have saw on these pages, since 2014 I’ve been investigating the inventory audits of the US official gold reserves, which should prove the existence of the metal that embodies the credibility of the world reserve currency. My first article showed the official narrative: all the bars of in total 8,134 tonnes of gold spread over depositories at Fort Knox, West Point, Denver and New York, have been carefully counted, weighed, assayed and inventoried in between 1974 and 2008.
In subsequent posts I’ve exposed there is a vast array of problems to be found with the physical audits. Through several Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request, I had obtained information that severely damaged the integrity of the official narrative. Example given, one of my FOIAs that requested the audit reports drafted in between 1974 and 1986, when 7,504 tonnes was audited, revealed the US government had “lost” nearly all documents.

Gold Signals Trump Is No Different

by Dave Kranzler, Investment Research Dynamics:
The good news is that Hillary lost but the bad news is that Trump won.
A massive take-down of the gold and silver markets was put into action shortly after it became obvious that Trump was going to take the election, shortly after midnight EST. Gold had finished soaring about $64 when early returns indicated the possibility of an upset. So why was gold methodically disemboweled once Trump emerged as the official winner?
Contrary to all the propaganda smoke being blown from the right and the left, Trump won because of economics. Going back to 1932, in any Presidential election year in which the growth in real disposable income was less than 3.1%, the incumbent party holding the White House lost the White House – in 2016 the official real disposable income growth has been 2.33%. Please re-read that fact and let it sink in. There’s been six elections in which this occurred – this table was sourced from John Wiliams’

from Harvey Organ:
It seems that Shanghai pricing is higher than the other two , (NY and London). The spread has been occurring on a regular basis and thus I expect to see arbitrage happening as investors buy the lower priced NY gold and sell to China at the higher price. This should drain the comex.
Also why would mining companies hand in their gold to the comex and receive constantly lower prices. They would be open to lawsuits if they knowingly continue to supply the comex despite the fact that they could be receiving higher prices in Shanghai.

The Election Of Donald Trump Is Already Having An Enormous Impact On The Economy

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
The election of Donald Trump has sent shockwaves through the U.S. economy and the U.S. financial system. Since November 8th, the Dow has hit a brand new all-time record high, the U.S. dollar has strengthened greatly, and bank stocks are way up. But not all of the economic news is good news. Unlike stocks, bonds have reacted very negatively to Trump’s election victory. The past week has been an absolute bloodbath for bond traders, and as you will see below this is going to have dramatic implications for all U.S. consumers moving forward.

Fed's Kashkari Releases Plan To End "Too Big To Fail", Compares Banks To Terrorists

In the latest reminder that 7 years after the financial crisis, the US banking system still remains a systemic risk, Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari today released four-step plan to end too-big-to-fail problem. The reason for the proposal: America's "biggest banks continue to pose a significant, ongoing risk to our economy" and "One analogy that helps highlight the trade-off of costs and benefits is the risk of terrorism."

Anti-Trump US Color Revolution Includes Soros and Clinton ‘Purple’ Takeover?

from The Daily Bell:
Billionaire Globalist Soros Exposed as Hidden Hand Behind Trump Protests — Provoking US ‘Color Revolution’ … Billionaire globalist financier George Soros’ has been revealed to be a driving force behind the organizing of nationwide protests against the election of Donald Trump — exposing the protests to largely be an organized, top-down operation — and not an organic movement of concerned Americans taking to the streets as reported by the mainstream media. -Free Thought Project
Two recent articles may illustrate a determined attempt to overthrow the Trump victory and substitute a new regime, presumably Hillary’s.
One article, excerpted above, is a clever analysis of the “organic” protests against Trump now taking place in the US, which can certainly be perceived as a domestic “color revolution.” The second article, excerpted below, tells us about a “Purple Revolution” now being conducted by the Clintons.

Russian Analysis Shows Western-Backed Terrorists Using Chemical Weapons Against Civilians

by Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post:
In yet another blow to the credibility of the Western corporate media and the anti-Syria propaganda blitz it has maintained since early 2011, experts from the Russian Center For Radiological, Chemical, and Biological Defense have recently announced that analysis of the shells fired by terrorists at the 1070 Apartment Complex in Aleppo contained chemical weapons.
This new revelation brings Western propaganda crashing to ground in regards to the claims that it is Assad’s government using chemical weapons and that the terrorists have no access to them.
“Rapid sample analysis shows that the toxic substances in the militants’ artillery ammunition were chlorine and white phosphorus,” an analyst from the center said.
