Putin Issues Dire Warning: Western Elites Plotting ‘Soft Coup’ to ‘Not Let Trump Take Office’

by Jay Syrmopoulos, The Free Thought Project:
Moscow, Russia – During a press conference in Moscow, on Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin weighed in on the ongoing power struggle taking place in the U.S. in the lead up to the transition of power in Washington, D.C. on January 20 – going so far as to call it a “soft coup.”
Putin was direct in his interpretation of events that are currently transpiring in the U.S., noting that he sees the same forces currently at work in America, as were behind the 2014 soft coup in Ukraine. That coup began under the auspices of peaceful protests, but strategically devolved into a violent confrontation that saw Viktor Yanukovych pushed from power in Ukraine.

he Silver Market will experience a significant trend change in the future due the unraveling of the paper markets. Already we are witnessing a lot of political turmoil and havoc as President-elect Donald Trump gets ready to take over the White House in the next few days.

Craig over at recently interviewed Paul Myclhresst about the huge problem the Chinese government is dealing with as they liquidate Dollars to prop up their banking and economic system. I highly recommend listening to that interview if you haven’t.

from Antonius Aquinas:
John Connally, President Nixon’s Secretary of the Treasury, once remarked to the consternation of Europe’s financial elites over America’s inflationary monetary policy, that the dollar “is our currency, but your problem.” Times have certainly changed and it now appears that the dollar has become an American problem.
In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, the soon to be 45th President of the United States believes that the greenback’s strength – up some 25% against a broad basket of currencies since 2014 – is now “too strong,” “killing us,” and has hurt companies trying to compete overseas.* A top Trump economics advisor, Anthony Scaramucci, reinforced his boss’ sentiment adding that “we must be careful of a rising dollar.”

Why a Financial Crisis Could be Much Worse if Trump and Yellen Can’t Cooperate

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:
A review of the Fed’s toolkit, consisting of interest rate hikes to fight inflation, and a litany of tools to fight deflation — helicopter money, financial repression, negative real rates, rate cuts, negative nominal rates, QE, forward guidance, currency wars, and gold — shows that the Fed will be fully engaged in manipulating the US economy for an indefinite period of time.
Even the simple act of normalising the Fed’s balance sheet, by allowing its Treasury securities to run-off at maturity without selling those securities, would take at least five years.
