– Mike Krieger: Trump Pulls Out of Iran Deal – U.S. Determined to Become a Rogue State:

“Let me cut to the chase. Every single world leader knows Trump’s full of shit. Even more importantly, the citizens of their nations also know it. Everyone with a functioning brain understands that pulling out of the Iran deal has nothing to do with terrorism, nuclear bombs or any other fairytale propagated by U.S. neocons. This is simply about the existence of a non-U.S. client state in a key strategic region sitting on massive oil reserves. It’s about empire — global games of power and money fueled by a desperate attempt to hold on to a unipolar world where the U.S. bosses everyone around.”

Gold & Silver Eagle Sales Drop Sharply Due To Central Bank Intervention

Gold & Silver Eagle Sales Drop Sharply Due To Central Bank Intervention:

Thanks to the Fed and Central bank intervention, sales of Gold and Silver Eagle sales declined sharply over the past year. Yes, it’s true… precious metals investors have lost interest in gold and silver as the stocks, real estate, and crypto markets reached new highs in 2017. So, who wants to continue purchasing gold and silver when many cryptocurrencies were experiencing 10% increases in a day.

Ron Paul Fears “Huge” Correction In Stocks, Warns “It’s Going To Be A Calamity”

Ron Paul Fears “Huge” Correction In Stocks, Warns “It’s Going To Be A Calamity”:

“I think we have a greater distortion and a financial danger sitting out there bigger than ever before,” warned former presidential candidate Ron Paul in an ominous interview with CNBC this week.

While markets briefly got nervous over Trump’s tariffs last week, Paul warns Wall Street is missing the bigger picture and that the real trouble stems from Fed policy and easy money

“If the Fed continues on the things that they are sort of planning on doing, it’s going to be a calamity.

The former Texas congressman explained that The Fed has made critical policy errors that have helped caused a “rigged economy.

It’s the debt, stupid, is Paul’s clear message…

Everything is just very burdened with debt, and there’s no stopping it.

According to Paul’s latest prediction, the February pullback may be just a blip compared to what’s ahead.

Financial insiders contemplate “imminent” 2018 US stock market crash of up to “50%”

The greatest financial/economic collapse in (known) world history has been planned a long time ago.

I’ve told you about this many, many times.

Continue to prepare for (total) collapse,…

…because it’s coming.

Financial insiders contemplate “imminent” 2018 US stock market crash of up to “50%”:

Coming dramatic decline of US stock prices would trigger global recession, finds grim forecast to be explored at roundtable hosted by British financial services think-tank

A new analysis published on the website of a London-based think-tank, funded by the world’s biggest banking and financial services institutions, warns that the US stock market is on the brink of an imminent crash that could trigger another global recession.

The document by a senior US economist and former Houblon-Norman Fellow at the Bank of England is published on the website of the Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation (CSFI), which runs around 100 roundtable events a year involving financial services insiders from the UK and beyond.

The document forecasts that in 2018, US stock prices are likely to plummet by as much as “forty to fifty percent” — compared to the less than five percent plunge in early February. The document was published weeks before the recent stock market volatility.

The warning of a forty to fifty percent drop points to the prospect of a global financial crash worse than the 2008 banking collapse.
