Bundesbank Repatriates Gold From New York, Paris “Faster Than Planned”:

In January of 2016, the Bundesbank announced that three years after commencing the transfer of some of its offshore-held gold from vaults located at the Banque de France in Paris and the NY Fed in New York, it had repatriated a total of 366.3 tonnes, bringing the German central bank’s gold reserves held in Frankfurt to 1,402 tonnes, or 41.5% of Germany’s total gold of 3,381 tonnes, for the first time greater than the 1.347 thousand tonnes located at the New York Fed, which as of January 27, 2016 held 39.9% of Germany’s official gold.

“With approximately 1,403 tonnes of gold, Frankfurt has been our largest storage location, ahead of New York, since the end of last year,” said Carl-Ludwig Thiele, Member of the Executive Board of the Deutsche Bundesbank. “The transfers are proceeding smoothly. We have succeeded in once again significantly increasing the transport volume compared with 2014. This means that operations are running very much according to schedule,” added Thiele last January.

Fed Hikes Rates For First Time In 2016, Increases Pace Of Rate ‘Normalization’ Forecast:

With 100% chance of at least a 25bps hike (and 10% chance of 50bps), this was perhaps the most ‘priced in’ of any Fed meeting ever, and this time the Fed did not disappoint, however where the Fed did surprise was its hawkish outlook, as it now expects 3 rate hikes in 2017 instead of 2 as of September.

Sure!


Deutsche Bank “Explains” How Stocks Will React To The Fed’s Rate Hike:

“This time is different”, or maybe it’s just 1929 all over again, because according to Deutsche Bank, after 8 years of easing sent the S&P to all time highs, the only thing that is more bullish than a dovish Fed, is a Hawkish one, and as a result no matter what the Fed does tomorrow, and how it hikes rates, equities can only go “higher.

Deplorable? Two Topless Women Protest At Trump’s Polling Station:

In order to decry the deplorabe and irredeemable nature of Donald Trump and his supporters, two women decided to bare their breasts and chant anti-Trump slogans inside the polling station where Donald Trump will cast his ballot later today.

The women were arrested after security grappled with them in front of a large group of voters and cameras.

Yeah, that will show them sexist pigs!

$195 Billion Asset Manager: “The Time Has Come To Leave The Dance Floor”:

When the supposed solutions to the Fed’s dilemma are merely new “problems,” you know you are approaching the cycle’s end… long-term investing is predicated on not just knowing where the happening parties are during the reflationary parts of the cycle but more importantly, knowing when the time has come to leave the dance floor. In our view, that time has already come.”

Trump Slams Yellen: The Fed Has Created A “Stock Bubble” And “A False Economy” To Boost Obama:

One month ago, Donald Trump urged his followers to sell stocks, warning of “very scary scenarios” for investors, and accused the Fed of setting the stage for the next market crash when he said that “interest rates are artificially low” during a phone interview with Fox Business. “The only reason the stock market is where it is is because you get free money.”

Earlier today, speaking to a reporter traveling on his plane who asked Trump about a potential rate hike by the Fed in September, Trump took his vendetta to the next level, saying that the Fed is “keeping the rates artificially low so the economy doesn’t go down so that Obama can say that he did a good job. They’re keeping the rates artificially low so that Obama can go out and play golf in January and say that he did a good job. It’s a very false economy. We have a bad economy, everybody understands that but it’s a false economy. The only reason the rates are low is so that he can leave office and he can say, ‘See I told you.'” Continue reading »

We’ve Reached the “Zero Point” of Debt Creation:

Hurtling toward a massive financial crisis.

Forty-five years and counting: We’ve been on a debt spree since the early 1970s when we went off the gold standard, covering every possible angle. Trade deficits, government deficits, unfunded entitlements, private debt – you name it! Our total debt has grown 2.5-times GDP since 1971.

How could economists not see this as a problem? How is this the least bit sustainable?

It isn’t. We’re hurtling toward a massive financial crisis, and all we have to show for it are financial asset bubbles destined to burst. And when they do, they’ll wipe out the artificial wealth they’ve created for many decades… in just a few years, as they did from late 1929 into late 1932!

The chart below shows the common-sense truth. Continue reading »

America The Debt Pig: We Are A ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ Society – And ‘Pay Later’ Is Rapidly Approaching:

If you really wanted to live like a millionaire, you could start doing it right now.  All you have to do is to apply for as many credit cards as possible and then begin running up credit card balances like there is no tomorrow.  At this point, I know what most of you are probably thinking.  You are probably thinking that such a lifestyle would not last for long and that a day of reckoning would eventually come, and you would be exactly right.  In fact, anyone that has ever had a tremendous amount of credit card debt knows how painful that day of reckoning can be.  To mindlessly run up credit card debt is exceedingly reckless, but unfortunately that is precisely what we have been doing as a nation as a whole.  We are a “buy now, pay later” society, and our national day of reckoning is approaching very, very quickly.

Often we like to focus on our exploding national debt, but household debt is out of control too.  In fact, the total amount of household debt in the United States is now up to a whopping 12.3 trillion dolllarsContinue reading »

“As a summary list of failings I think it quite accurate in indicating the Federal Reserve is an organisation of self preserving banksters whose aim totally excludes the interests of the ordinary working man.

It Begins: Barney Frank Tells Yellen Not To Hike Before The Election, “It Risks Destabilizing Markets”:

Even as speculation had built up that the “apolitical” Fed would not dare to hike rates ahead of the election to avoid a market swoon, one which would significantly boost Trump’s presidential odds, so far nobody – either on the left or the right – had suggested to Yellen not to hike rates before November 8, for one simple reason: it would immediately crush the scripted narrative of an independent Fed (something which Fed governor Lael Brainard apparently was unaware of when she donated repeatedly to the Hillary Clinton campaign), a narrative which benefits both republicans and democrats who can pretend they are busy in Congress simply by pointing at the all time high in the S&P500, which alas is simply a function of global asset bubbles.

However, that changed earlier today when, just one day after Janet Yellen’s closely watched Jackson Hole speech which may or may not have opened the door to a September rate hike, Barney Frank – one of the architects of the 2010 Dodd-Frank “Wall Street Reform” act – and a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton, told The Hill it would be a mistake for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates before the election.

giant bubble

“Central Banks Now Own $25 Trillion Of Financial Assets”:

With 85% of Wall Street telling Citi they expect a “dovish hike signal” from Yellen tomorrow, which means a polite request for another BTFD opportunity, even if as BofA says “expectations for a dovish Fed are coinciding with macro strength in the US (most obviously in housing & consumer spending) as well as highest level of wage inflation since Jan’10“…

wage expectations

… here is a quick reminder of where we currently stand from BofA’s Michael Hartnett, from a brief note titled The Liquidity Supernova & the “Keynesian Put.”

Risk assets are now supported by the new ”Keynesian Put”, the expectation that fiscal measures will be deployed to combat any renewed weakness in the economy/markets (independently of any larger political projects). But asset prices remain primarily supported by excess monetary abundance across the world: Continue reading »

 – Fed Admits Another $4 Trillion In QE Will Be Needed To Offset An “Economic Shock”:

In a Fed Staff working paper released over the weekend titled “Gauging the Ability of the FOMC to Respond to Future Recessions” and penned by deputy director of the division of research and statistics at the Fed, the author concludes that “simulations of the FRB/US model of a severe recession suggest that large-scale asset purchases and forward guidance about the future path of the federal funds rate should be able to provide enough additional accommodation to fully compensate for a more limited [ability] to cut short-term interest rates in most, but probably not all, circumstances.” Continue reading »

“Bankers create “MONEY” from the air.
It is invisible.
They take your possessions and “LEND” you a lesser percentage against that, based on THEIR INVISIBLE CURRENCY.
THEY WIN…YOU LOSE.
Every now and again their greed for wealth and power corrupts them.
The decades of ‘LENDING’ invisible money gets too big.
It becomes ‘UNPAYABLE” and must lead to BAD DEBT or ‘DEFAULT’.
That is wgere we are now.
All Governments have overspent & borrowed.
All Banks have lent money from thin air to fund the Government spending.
It cannot continue because it is not sustainable.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury during President Reagan’s first term. He was Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal. He has held numerous academic appointments, including the William E. Simon Chair, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown University, and Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University.

How Long Can Economic Reality Be Ignored?

Trump and Clinton have come out with the obligatory “economic plans.”  Neither them nor their advisors, have any idea about what really needs to be done, but this is of no concern to the media.

The presstitutes operate according to “pay and say.”  They say what they are paid to say and that is whatever serves the corporations and the government.  This means that the presstitutes like Hitlery’s economic plan and do not like Trump’s.

Yesterday I listened to the NPR presstitutes say how Trump pretends to be in favor of free trade but really is against it, because he is against all the free trade agreements such as NAFTA, the Trans-Pacific and Trans-Atlantic partnerships.  The presstitutes don’t know that these are not trade agreements.  NAFTA is a “give away American jobs” agreement, and the so-called partnerships give away the sovereignty of countries in order to award global corporations immunity from laws.

Crony Capitalism

The Dirty Business of U.S. ‘Think Tanks’:

Many of you have already read this past Sunday’s excellent and deeply disturbing article published by the New York Times regarding the shady and inappropriate activities regularly conducted by U.S. “think tanks.” If you haven’t read it yet, I highly suggest you take the time to do so.

It’s important to acknowledge that the U.S. economy has morphed into one gigantic lawless crime scene. An environment in which crony insiders who add zero value to society parasitically feast on the country’s treasure. In the case of so-called “think tanks,” we have organizations receiving copious taxpayer subsidies for the privilege of screwing over the American public.

To understand the topic further, I present you with some excerpts from the article titled, Researchers or Corporate Allies? Think Tanks Blur the Line:

Think tanks, which position themselves as “universities without students,” have power in government policy debates because they are seen as researchers independent of moneyed interests. But in the chase for funds, think tanks are pushing agendas important to corporate donors, at times blurring the line between researchers and lobbyists. And they are doing so while reaping the benefits of their tax-exempt status, sometimes without disclosing their connections to corporate interests. Continue reading »

GRouNDHoGS AND PoNZiS...

Goldman Fined 0.1% Of Revenue For “Criminal Theft” Of Confidential Fed Information:

Last October, we reported that “Wall Street Was Shocked As Feds Bring Criminal Case Against Goldman Banker Over Fed Leaks.” Briefly, because as we also reported several months later, nobody actually ended up going to prison for the infamous story of Goldman Sachs obtaining classified NY Fed documents as a result of the revolving, ended up with two workers getting slaps on the wrist in some modest penalties.

Today the story got its closure, when the Fed announced that Goldman Sachs has agreed to pay $36.3 million to settle allegations by the Federal Reserve that it obtained and used confidential regulatory materials from the central bank two years ago. This amounts to 0.1% of the firm’s 2015 revenue of $33.8 billion. Continue reading »

Submitted by Mac Slavo via SHTFPlan.com,

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.

Helicopter Money——The Biggest Fed Power Grab Yet:

The Cleveland Fed’s Loretta Mester is a clueless apparatchik and Fed lifer, who joined the system in 1985 fresh out of Barnard and Princeton and has imbibed in its Keynesian groupthink and institutional arrogance ever since. So it’s not surprising that she was out flogging—-albeit downunder in Australia—- the next step in the Fed’s rolling coup d’ etat.
