14 Signs That There Is A Plot To Use Russia As An Excuse To Steal The Presidency From Trump On December 19th Or January 6th

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
Donald Trump could have the election legally stolen from him on either December 19th when the Electoral College casts their votes or on January 6th when a joint session of Congress gathers to count those votes. The establishment is in full-blown panic mode at this point, and they seem to have settled on “Russian interference in the election” as the angle that they plan to use to try to deny Trump the presidency. As you will see below, there is an all-out effort to try to persuade members of the Electoral College that are supposed to be committed to Donald Trump to cast their votes for someone else instead. And if that doesn’t work, the groundwork is being laid for the Electoral College votes to potentially be invalidated when a joint session of Congress meets to count those votes on January 6th. I will explain how that would work later on in this article, but first let’s take a look at 14 signs that indicate that there is a plot to use Russia as an excuse to steal the presidency from Donald Trump…

Martin Armstrong At It Again! The Mechanism To Reset?

by Bill Holter, JS Mineset SGT Report:
Jim and I have received many panicked calls and e-mails regarding Martin Armstrong’s latest article. In it he again claims gold will collapse to below $1,000 per ounce and thus the fearful communications.
In this very short article, Armstrong questions whether India will begin gold confiscation suggesting door to door searches for “tax evaders”. He suggests if a gold confiscation is undertaken, the Indians will switch to purchasing silver …something the BIS has not thought about yet. The logic of a switch to silver is a good one, surprising considering some of what he has opined in the past…

The Yield That Breaks the Trump Rally’s Back

by Michael Pento, Market Oracle:
In 2012 I wrote a book called “The Coming Bond Market Collapse”, in that book I predicted that the bond market would begin to collapse by the end of 2016. Clearly, this prediction has started to come true. However, in all candor, I never dreamed that the Ten-year Treasury yield would plummet to 1.3%. Neither did I ever imagine that over thirteen trillion dollars’ worth of global sovereign bonds would have a negative yield, as was the case this past summer.
The Book’s assumption was that the bursting of the bond bubble would be caused by a change in global central banks’ monetary policy or through the eventual achievement of their inflation targets. At this juncture-at least in the U.S. — we have both. The Ten-year Treasury note has risen 80% since July based on both the return of inflation and the Fed’s desire to raise interest rates.

Bullish Or Bearish - This Is The Real Risk

"As a money manager, I am currently long the stock market. I must be, or I potentially suffer career risk.

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:
The 21st Century is inching ever closer towards chaos… and the time to get out of the big city is upon us.
With economic conditions, growing crises, desperate populations looking to scratch by, and more hatred and division than at any previous point in American history, the city has become a dangerous and unruly setting – and finding yourseld in one that is falling apart could be the worst mistake you ever make.
