Trump-Clinton

As I’ve said here: Did Bernie Sanders Just Go Full Establishment?:

All candidates are “full establishment” …

… and Hillary is the worst of them all.

You have no choice. None.

Trump Picks Former Goldman Partner And Soros Employee As Finance Chairman:

In an oddly ironic twist, today Donald Trump announced that he has picked as chairman of his newly launched fundraising operation none other than a former employee of the bank he has repeatedly criticized in the past, and which he used as a foil to criticize Ted Cruz: Goldman Sachs.

Trump announced that heading up his own personal fundraising operation as national finance chairman will be Steven Mnuchin, a long-time business associate, chairman and CEO of the hedge fund Dune Capital. More importantly, however, he spent 17 years at Goldman Sachs where he was most recently a Partner, having built a fortung of $46 million before launching his own hedge fund.

While employed at Goldman, he purchased the remains of IndyMac Bank (now known as OneWest Bank), the Pasadena, California-based mortgage lender that collapsed in 2008. “Notoriously press-shy, the executive endured 2011 protests on the lawn of his Bel Air mansion by foreclosed homeowners angered at his lender’s handling of soured mortgages.”

As Zero Hedge readers are familiar, Trump often critized his main competitor Ted Cruz for his links to the bank because of loans used to finance Cruz’s Senate campaign, and because Heidi Cruz was a one-time employee of Goldman. “I know the guys at Goldman Sachs. They have total, total control over him. Just like they have total control over Hillary Clinton,” Trump said in one debate. Continue reading »

EU Plans $290K Per Person Fine For Countries Refusing “Fair Share” Of Refugees; Angry Response Ensues:

As Norway offers cash for refugees to leave, announcing that they won’t be accepting any more refugees from the EU, and Switzerland prepares its military to close down borders, the EU has seemingly had enough of every country acting as if it has any type of sovereignty left. The European Commission has announced that it is going to pull rank on everyone, and in Obama-like fashion, will be fining countries for not taking their fair share of refugees.

Here is a detailed summary of all that happened today in the ongoing European refugee crisis courtesy of Mish Shedlock.

EU Plans $290,000 Per Person Fine on Countries Refusing “Fair Share” of Refugees; Case For Brexit Crystallized

The European Commission plans fines of $290,000 per person on countries refusing to take in their fair share of refugees.

This plan is aimed straight at Poland, Slovokia, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Austria. Continue reading »

Migrant crisis Austria - rape
The area around Praterstern train station in Vienna is overrun by shiftless migrants from Afghanistan and North Africa who are selling drugs, fighting turf battles and assaulting female passersby. Police were dispatched to the area 6,265 times in 2015, or an average of 17 times a day.

Migrant Rape Epidemic Reaches Austria:

  • A 20-year-old asylum seeker from Iraq confessed to raping a 10-year-old boy at a public swimming pool in Vienna. The Iraqi said the rape was a “sexual emergency” resulting from “excess sexual energy.”
  • Those who dare to link spiraling crime to Muslim mass migration are being silenced by the guardians of Austrian multiculturalism.
  • According to data compiled by the Austrian Interior Ministry, nearly one out of three asylum seekers in Vienna was accused of committing crimes in 2015. North African gangs fighting for control over drug trafficking were responsible for roughly half of the 15,828 violent crimes — rapes, robberies, stabbings and assaults — reported in the city during 2015.
  • Austria received 90,000 asylum requests in 2015, the second-highest number in the EU on a per capita basis, but this pales in comparison to what may lie ahead. Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka warned last month that up to one million migrants are poised to cross the Mediterranean from Libya to Europe.

The brutal gang rape of a woman by three Afghan asylum seekers in central Vienna on April 22 has shocked the Austrian public and drawn attention to a spike in migrant-related rapes, sexual assaults and other crimes across the country.

The migrant crime wave comes as the anti-immigrant Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ) has surged in opinion polls. The party’s candidate, Norbert Hofer, won the first round of Austria’s presidential elections on April 24, and is on track to win the presidency in the second round, run-off election scheduled for May 22.

“Don’t Forget, I’m The King Of Debt, I Love Debt” – Trump Chimes In On Puerto Rico

In an interview with Wolf Blitzer, Donald Trump said that although he is the “king of debt”, and that he “loves debt”, he wouldn’t bail out Puerto Rico.

trump-debt

Responding to whether or not Trump would bail out Puerto Rico as president of the United States…

No I don’t believe they should, and I think frankly Puerto Rico is better if they don’t because they’ll cut the bonds, they’ll cut them way down there’s far too much debt. The problem with Puerto Rico is they are far, far too much in debt. Don’t forget, I’m the king of debt, I love debt

As far as how he would suggest Puerto Rico solve its debt issue, The Donald, of course, has a solution for that. Continue reading »

Caught On Tape: 100s Of M1 Abrams Tanks Roll Through Houston, TX:

Just days after we exposed Texas police planning for riots and conducting mass arrest drills, the site of hundreds of M1 Abrams battle-tanks rolling on a train through Houston raised more than a few eyebrows…

Several locals reported seeing a train Tuesday, loaded full of tanks, painted in a desert tan color – the second time in a week.

As of now the rail-train’s destination is unknown.

Support For Anti-Muslim AfD Hits Record High As 60% Agree That “Islam Does Not Belong In Germany”:

We recently pointed out that Germany’s Alternative for Germany (AfD) party was gaining significant popularity as the anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim tide continued to rise in Germany. We then noted that everyone in the establishment will be shocked when the AfD’s polling numbers started to climb higher.

We expect much more such back and forth between the “left” and the “right”, which just like in the US, will ultimately benefit the object the media has decided to target for ridicule, until – just like in Austria – Germany’s establishment is shocked when the AfD’s polling skyrockets in the coming months and leads to drastic changes in Germany’s political landscape.

Rail Traffic Depression: 292 Union Pacific Engines Are Sitting In The Arizona Desert Doing Nothing:

We continue to get more evidence that the U.S. economy has entered a major downturn.  Just last week, I wrote about how U.S. GDP growth numbers have been declining for three quarters in a row, and previously I wrote about how corporate defaults have surged to their highest level since the last financial crisis.  Well, now we are getting some very depressing numbers from the rail industry.  As you will see below, U.S. rail traffic was down more than 11 percent from a year ago in April.  That is an absolutely catastrophic number, and the U.S. rail industry is feeling an enormous amount of pain right now.  This also tells us that “the real economy” is really slowing down, because less stuff is being shipped by rail all over the nation.

Surprise! Baltic Dry Index Plunges Most Since November As Commodity Bubble Bursts:

Who could have seen this coming? Remember a week ago when TV entertainers crowed about the surge in The Baltic Dry Freight Index was a “clear signal” that ‘China is back’ baby and that escape velocity growth was just around the corner as global growth was destined to pick up…

20160505_bdiy1

Well, just as we warned very explicitly, the ramp in the index merely reflected the frenzied speculation in industrial metals by the Chinese and as authorities have cracked down on that idiocy, so the Baltic Dry has plunged by the most since November… as real demand punches back.

From ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis To New Mexico’s Martinez – Donald Trump’s Top 10 ‘Veep’ Contenders:

The race for The White House appears to have taken a backseat for a news cycle as the Republican “veepstakes” gets underway. Donald Trump said this morning that he would prefer a running mate with government experience to “help with pushing legislation through,” adding that he puts a 40% chance that a former rival in the Republican race would get the nod. As The Hill reports, picking a VP could be a difficult undertaking, as some potential candidates might be hesitant to hitch their political future to a polarizing figure like Trump, but there will be plenty willing to roll the dice and join his historic outsider campaign.

“We’ll Respond Totally Asymmetrically” – Russia Answers NATO With Three New Deployments:

Russia has wasted no time in responding to NATO’s decision to deploy 4,000 troops to Russia’s border. Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu announced that Russia will be deploying two new divisions to the West, and one to the South (reportedly with 10,000 troops each) in order to counterbalance NATO’s increased military presence.

The Defense Ministry is taking a number of measures to respond to the NATO military buildup at the Russian border. Before the year’s end two new divisions will be formed in the Western Military District and one in the Southern Military District.” Shoigu said.

Aleksandr Grushko, Russia’s envoy to NATO said in response to NATO’s plan “we are not passive observers, we consistently take all the military measures we consider necessary in order to counterbalance this reinforced presence that is not justified by anything. Certainly we’ll respond totally asymmetrically.”

Just like Andrew Wakefield claimed mumps vaccine caused Autism, and Obama claims Putin’s military exercises within national boundaries is ‘aggressive’.

So now they trash him for telling the truth.”


Climate Cult Leader Bill Nye Slammed as ‘Pretend Scientist in a Bow Tie’:

Bill Nye is being branded a scientific fraud.

Watch a video of this report here:

Weather Channel founder John Coleman has slammed Bill Nye, ‘The Science Guy’, for being a scientific fraud:

“I have always been amazed that anyone would pay attention to Bill Nye, a pretend scientist in a bow tie,”

“As a man who has studied the science of meteorology for over 60 years and received the American Meteorological Society’s “Meteorologist of the Year” award, I am totally offended that Nye gets the press and media attention he does.”

Bill Nye is an obstinate supporter of the idea of anthropogenic, or man-made, climate change (previously global warming), and has gone as far to suggest that anyone who denies that theory should be jailed.

When asked if ‘climate deniers’ should be in prison, Nye responded:

Russian Orchestra Performs In Syria’s Palmyra Ruins, Recently Held By ISIS – Live Webcast:

In an surprising development for war-torn Syria, Russia’s famous Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, is giving a concert on Thursday on the stage of Palmyra’s world-famous amphitheater, which until recently was under ISIS control and parts of which had been destroyed.

The orchestra, conducted by world-famous conductor Valery Gergiev, is holding a “Pray for Palmyra. Music Revives Ancient Ruins” concert on the stage of Palmyra’s historic amphitheater. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday during a videoconference with Syria’s city of Palmyra, liberated from Daesh terrorists, that the concert of Russia’s Mariinsky Theatre Symphony Orchestra in the historic city is a gratitude to everyone fighting against terrorism.

As reported previously, the Syrian armed forces, backed by militias and Russian forces, recaptured Palmyra from ISIS on March 27, nearly a year after terrorists  had taken hold of the city and destroyed much of the UNESCO World Heritage Site’s artifacts. According to preliminary estimates, some 20 percent of ancient Palmyra was destroyed, while many exhibits were looted from museums. It could take around five years to restore the city.

Monsanto-GMO-CropMonsanto-Food-GMO


Federal Spending Bill Appropriates Tax Payer Dollars to Be Used to Spread Pro-GMO Propaganda:

As more food companies are opting to go “GMO-free” in response to rising public awareness, Monsanto and the biotech industry can count on their friends in government to help counter the movement.

A paragraph tucked into a new spending bill would give the green light for a government propaganda campaign on behalf of GMO giants.

“$3,000,000 shall be used by the Commissioner of Food and Drugs, in coordination with the Secretary of Agriculture, for consumer outreach to promote understanding and acceptance of agricultural biotechnology and biotechnology-derived food products and animal feed, including through publication and distribution of science-based educational information on the environmental, nutritional, food safety, economic, and humanitarian benefits of such biotechnology, food products, and feed.”

Regardless of your stance on genetically modified foods, government has no place using taxpayer dollars to convince the public that everything about GMOs is perfectly safe. Monsanto spends millions to get lawmakers in its pocket, and the results are obvious here. The biotech industry has managed to put its own into high-level government positions, such as Obama’s choice of a former Monsanto vice president to run the FDA. Continue reading »

MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGH: Hemp cannabidiol (CBD) product approved by Brazilian government for treatment of cancer:

In a stunning medical breakthrough for humanity, a hemp cannabidiol (CBD) product from Medical Marijuana, Inc. has been approved by the government of Brazil as a treatment for cancer. The product, called Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO), is also approved by Brazil as a prescription medication for epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and chronic pain.

This move puts Brazil far ahead of the United States in the realm of compassionate, safe, affordable medicine that can treat serious medical conditions such as cancer. “We have the utmost respect for the Brazilian government that decided hemp CBD oil should be available to their people, for a variety of reasons,” said Stuart W. Titus, PhD and Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc. “Brazil is a shining example of how a national government has responded to humanitarian interests and has swiftly and diligently passed favorable legislation on behalf of the health and well-being of its people – children in particular.” Continue reading »

Majority Of Germans Think The Media Is Controlled By Political, Economic Elites:

According to a recent survey, the majority of people in Germany view the news media as simply a pillar of the government and the powerfully elite. Only one third of the respondents think that the German news media is truly independent, while the majority view the government and parties as having control over particular policies, and the lobbyists and advertisers having control over the economic news.

More than half of the respondents viewed the news media as controlled by the “powerful” in the country, a view which manifested in recent years in the wake of going through crisis after crisis as the media began to be viewed simply as part of the system, or, the Fourth Estate. Continue reading »

After the leaks showed what it stands for, this could be the end for TTIP (The Independent):

The documents show that US corporations will be granted unprecedented powers over any new public health or safety regulations to be introduced in future. If any European government does dare to bring in laws to raise social or environmental standards, TTIP will grant US investors the right to sue for loss of profits

Today’s shock leak of the text of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) marks the beginning of the end for the hated EU-US trade deal, and a key moment in the Brexit debate. The unelected negotiators have kept the talks going until now by means of a fanatical level of secrecy, with threats of criminal prosecution for anyone divulging the treaty’s contents.

Now, for the first time, the people of Europe can see for themselves what the European Commission has been doing under cover of darkness – and it is not pretty. Continue reading »

Watch Ron Paul Destroy the Two-Party System on Live TV:

San Diego, CA — Longtime congressman and former presidential candidate Ron Paul made it clear in a recent interview on CNN that he will vote 3rd party if the presidential race comes down to Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton.

Though Paul didn’t specify which candidate he would vote for, he did say Libertarian or Independent party candidates are a possibility. Paul also said he couldn’t support Ted Cruz, who has since dropped out of the race, because he’s a “theocrat” who wants to rule with religion. Paul didn’t comment on his specific reasons for not supporting Clinton, but one can speculate the fiercely anti-war Paul opposes her militaristic tendencies.

Then Paul went even further, saying both the Republican and Democratic parties — from Reagan to Obama — are controlled by the “Deep State” and powerful special interests. Watch the interview below:

I’ve said many times that if you want to protect your financial assets physical gold and silver are (in my opinion) the place to be (and especially silver, which is still my favorite “investment”).

Only physical gold and silver are real, everything else will (in my opinion) turn out to be an illusion.

Of course you’ll need to prepare (for the greatest financial collapse in world history) on all levels: Water, food, survival gear, etc.

Just buying gold and silver will not nearly be enough, but it’s a good start.


Stand Aside JP Morgan, A New Player In The Silver Market Has Arrived:

Via SRSroccoReport.com,

The days of JP Morgan controlling the silver market may be numbered as a new player in the silver market has arrived.  For the past several years, JP Morgan held the most silver on a public exchange in the world.  While the LBMA may hold (or did hold) more silver, their stockpiles are not made public.

Regardless, JP Morgan held the most silver at nearly 74 million oz (Moz) in its warehouse, up until recently.  Over the past two months, JP Morgan’s silver inventories have fallen nearly 7 Moz to 67.1 Moz today:

JP-Morgan-Silver-Stocks-050316

As I mentioned in my previous article, Why Are The Chinese Stockpiling Silver? Big Move Coming?, JP Morgan increased their silver inventories from 4 Moz in April 2011 to 69.4 Moz April 19, 2016.  However, the Shanghai Futures Exchange silver inventories surged from 7.5 Moz in August 2015 to 54.7 Moz on April 19, 2016:

JP-Morgan-vs-SHFE-Silver-Inventories-NEw

Basically, JP Morgan added an average 16.3 Moz of silver each year for the past years, whereas the Shanghai Futures Exchange added nearly 7 Moz per month.  Furthermore, the majority of gains came since the beginning of 2016.  Again, here is my previous Shanghai Futures Exchange silver stock chart from the article linked above: Continue reading »

It’s all over but the press conference (and perhaps elbowing his wife in the face). Watch John Kasich announce he is taking the exterminaTed way out, and also suspending his presidential campaign one day after Ted Cruz did the same, and leaving Donald Trump the official GOP candidate.

Update: as expected, Kasich’s announcement will be that he is indeed suspending his campaign, and with that Trump is the official presidential candidate of the Republican party.

It appears that less than one day after Ted Cruz announced he is quitting the race, the last hurdle to Donald Trump becoming the official GOP candidate instead of just the “presumptive” one, is about to fall: according to CNN’s Phil Mattingly the republican challenger has just cancelled a press conference in Virginia and will make a statement in Ohio this afternoon at 5pm. We assume it is to announce he too is withdrawing from the race.
