We are excited to introduce a new guest, David Haggith of The Great Recession Blog. He’s been an author for 35 years and brings us an interesting perspective today. Join us for a discussion on current events and the economy.
David gives us a bit of his background including the last near decade of his timely predictions. He watched the real estate bubble build right to the point of collapse. The US would have experienced massive collapse at the time had the Fed not begun the largest monetary creation experiment of all time. Speculation has driven the market as investors sheepishly anticipate more Fed intervention.
We discuss the coincidental actions of the Fed in the face of the coming crisis. Are the powers that be involved in nefarious engineering? Or are they positioning themselves for a failed utopian Keynesian dream? David argues it really doesn’t matter as all roads lead to Rome. The Epocalypse, as he calls it, is coming. Continue reading →
First we discuss the LLC IRA in an understandable overview format. We address many typical questions and confusions. This structure allows one to take physical delivery of IRA gold and silver coins, and much more including: private equity, offshore investments, real estate, loans, etc.
We also cover the precious metals access card: a fully functional metals debit card, allowing one spend silver or gold with a swipe anywhere VISA is accepted. It also functions to withdraw local currency via ATM anywhere in the world using metals stored on physical account in the US.
Assets within the system, whether a mutual fund inside a 401k or cash in the bank, are facing serious risks in today’s world. The solutions discussed here are potential ways to remove many of these risks. Bail Ins are real, and just starting to show face in the West. Banks are showing cracks from derivative exposure, totaling up in the hundreds of trillions of dollars. It’s only a matter of time…
Join us in a Two Part Series covering current financial and economic events…
The Fed is admitting that we have a systemic Lehmann event unfolding, and with too big to fail policies suspended the logistics are in place to kill the banks, or some of them…
Today we are sub $30 oil, according to Jim and sources a bank collapse should be coming soon. The leverage to oil derivative contracts is massive and the banks are exposed. Jim hears that many of these hedges expire this January, February, and March.
Jim gives us a friendly Econ 101 lesson regarding the divergence of opinion and strategy between Micro and Macro forces. A company may have a different agenda from it’s country, enter Germany.
We discuss the fall of the house of Saud. Jim says the fall of the Erdogan Turkish regime is near, and to watch its currency. He believes we may seen redrawn Turkish borders in the future.
Jim draws a parallel between Ukraine and Syria and how each were used as attacks via Qatar. Jim calls out the US attacks in Syria, the supposed ISIS targets, which are really all key Syrian infrastructure.
Apparently Jim Kerry turned 180 degrees in Russia as he met with Putin saying US no longer requires Assad to step down as leader, and US requests the Turkish military evacuate Syria and Northern Iraq. The anti-NWO is on the rise. The great splintering of our nation is under way as good forces attack the bad.
We discuss the Narco trade. Doctors without borders was apparently overtaken by Bush heroine trade, and then bombed by good forces. Jim reveals how ISIS was being paid via this criminal cartel. There has been disrupted narco flow that apparently was even being used to prop up the US stock market.
Jim illustrates the fracturing taking place of NATO, which he calls a war alliance, a heroine alliance, and a terrorism alliance. Germany, France, and even Britain are going against NATO forces in Syria.
An economic apocalypse upon us. My 2016 economic predictions provide the full explanation as to why 2016 will be the year of the Epocalypse — a word that encompasses the roots “economic, epoch, collapse” and “apocalypse.” I needed a word big enough to describe all that is about to befall the world in 2016. When you see the towering forces that are prevailing against failing global economic architecture and the pit of debt beneath that structure, as laid out here, I think you’ll recognize that the Epocalypse is here, and it is everywhere. The Great Collapse has already begun.
What follows are the megatrends that will increasingly gang up in the first part of 2016 to stomp the deeply flawed global economy down into its own hole of debt. The economic collapse that is already developing includes the US economy and the US stock market that is now collapsing from the external forces and internal vacuum that I’ve been writing about for a few years here.

We were just treated to a fake official rate hike, and it was cleverly executed. The recent supposed USFed rate hike was a gigantic fraud, a misdirection, a clever ploy, and an act of extreme desperation. We were told of an official 25 basis point interest rate hike. But a hike of 0.25% is nowhere to be seen. The reality is that the USFed is so strapped, so deeply under siege, so overwhelmed, that it requires urgent help from the USDept Treasury. So they have expanded QE to become Double Barreled Hidden QE to Infinity. It has an important feature now, with national security stamped on it. This is truly the end game for the USDollar. Big thanks to Rob Kirby and EuroRaj on my colleague team for leading the way and shining the spotlight. Their abilities to see through the maze, smoke, mirrors, and din is impressive.
Consider the many points, which can be connected. As they say, connecting the dots can lead to conclusions more clearly, when the dots display a recognized picture. The deception was well organized, well planned, well delivered, and well done generally. Most financial analysts only read the headline, then gobble the false message like a dog eating his own vomit. Most traders only read the headline, and look for quick profit while anticipating the moves by the dullard masses. Best to look for the reality, and plan for the long run survival. Take a closer look at the developments within the USTreasury market where private accounts have emerged in recent months to purchase the referenced inventory of USTreasurys that China and others are dumping.

Dont be fooled, this is the plunge protection team clearly hard at work. Nobody in their right mind is buying these dips. China has halted trading, literally closing markets twice this week after single day declines of 7%. Yesterday Chinese markets were open less than 30 minutes. Oil is at multi decade lows, just breaching $33 per barrel today, a number not seen since 2004. We are seeing headlines such as “Dow has worst four-day start to a year on record.” from CNN. Meanwhile a Fed official confesses a rigged stock market. Gold and Bitcoin are just starting to breakout while silver is being kept flat.
These are incredibly strange days indeed. The cracks are showing today more than ever and as the stock markets appear set to collapse any moment, the US dollar surges. This is the volatility before a massive financial event. If a Tsunami were coming we are watching the water ebb out to sea now.
As if the grim financial news wasn’t enough, the world is at the cusp of revolution. Germany and Sweden, among others in Europe are literally burning as ‘Migrant’ riots break out and rapes rise dramatically. Women are being warned to stay in groups and avoid Migrant men. Meanwhile President Obama sheds tears in an emotionally charged media display to enact executive order on gun control.
To makes matters even worse yet, we have to watch our country splinter while people we may have once called ‘friends’ post social media with memes such as the following. Continue reading →
While the mainstream media focus on ISIS extremists, a threat that has gone virtually unreported is that your life savings could be wiped out in a massive derivatives collapse. Bank bail-ins have begun in Europe, and the infrastructure is in place in the US. Poverty also kills.
At the end of November, an Italian pensioner hanged himself after his entire €100,000 savings were confiscated in a bank “rescue” scheme. He left a suicide note blaming the bank, where he had been a customer for 50 years and had invested in bank-issued bonds. But he might better have blamed the EU and the G20’s Financial Stability Board, which have imposed an “Orderly Resolution” regime that keeps insolvent banks afloat by confiscating the savings of investors and depositors. Some 130,000 shareholders and junior bond holders suffered losses in the “rescue.”
The pensioner’s bank was one of four small regional banks that had been put under special administration over the past two years. The €3.6 billion ($3.83 billion) rescue plan launched by the Italian government uses a newly-formed National Resolution Fund, which is fed by the country’s healthy banks. But before the fund can be tapped, losses must be imposed on investors; and in January, EU rules will require that they also be imposed on depositors. According to a December 10th article on BBC.com: Continue reading →
The silver market is broken and has been broken for a long, long time. Much longer than most people think although many people can finally SEE the problems with the market now as the paper market continues to distort the price of physical silver. It is silver derivatives and computer trading models introduced in the 1970’s that really started to distort the market value and it has never been more distorted than it is today. Hundreds of Billions of silver derivative ounces are transacted by the bullion banks every year to steer and control the price of silver. This volume of silver trading dwarfs the tiny physical silver market that only provides a few hundred million ounces of physical silver to the market annually for investors to buy.
Those of us who know this to be true have tried to position ourselves such that the wide ranging price dynamic would not effect the position we took to take advantage of the inevitable price spike that must happen AFTER price manipulation ends. To do that we have bought physical silver and removed it from the system and out of the hands of the manipulators. Because we knew the price riggers could place the price of silver derivatives at $0/oz or $1M/oz with a click of a mouse it was the only way to ride out the manipulation.
So that’s what we have done and now we sit and await the END of this manipulation. We all knew it would be chaotic and produce very extreme pricing swings (as we are seeing now with sub $20 silver) but we knew it must end.
