Preparing for the Reign of the First Widow

Investment Research Dynamics is pleased to present another guest post by Stewart Dougherty. I wanted to preface Stewart’s formal essay with some thoughts he shared with me in our email exchanges leading up to his latest essay:

I haven’t shared with you one of the most important tenets of Inferential Analytics … namely, that the universal human condition is addiction. Addiction comes in hundreds of forms. Two of the most powerful are to money and power. HRC is addicted to both. She simply cannot let go of her presidential ambition, or her greed.

I must admit, when I saw her interviewed the other day regarding Syria, she looked terrible. Her legs looked as if they were about explode out of her pants, which were stretched to snapping. She looked like a human sausage. I thought her doctors would have been reversing her obesity by now, but apparently not. Among her other addictions, she is addicted to food, and is a glutton [IRD: she’s also an alcoholic]. Mentally, she is a complete mess. So I could be wrong … if she cannot get her gluttony under control, she cannot get to 2020. She simply will not have the required stamina, and could croak at any time.

My assumption is that when she smells Trump’s blood in the water, she will become so galvanized that she will get the gluttony under control, even if it’s only to get through the election. They will make Obama her running mate, if that’s what’s required to get her across the finish line. Then he can effectively have a third term, while she vegetates in a food coma.

We believe the 6 April 2017 Tomahawk missile attack on Syria indicates that Donald Trump has concluded that the fiscal, economic and political situations in the United States are beyond repair, and that without continued, massive military interventionism and spending, U.S. GDP will plunge, taking all of his campaign commitments down with it. Therefore, he has capitulated to the agenda of the Deep State looters and war profiteers. Trump’s capitulation has profound personal and financial implications for the citizens of the United States and the world.

The strikingly weak March employment report issued on 7 April 2017 demonstrated that rhetoric, no matter how well-intended, does not produce jobs or growth. Only genuine confidence, conviction and belief can do that, and after eight years of Obama’s colossal and deliberate “Hope and Change” lie, the people are not inclined to believe in political rhetoric at this time. We regard it as no coincidence that the attack on Syria occurred mere hours before the release of the March jobs report, the details of which would have been available to the President and his senior advisers in advance. Trump and his team knew that the news was bad, and that a course change and distraction were needed.

Increasingly, it appears that the American people will get a 21 ½ month Trump presidency (late January 2017 through early November 2018). Republicans are backing away from the Obamacare campaign promises they made to the people by merely substituting one massive government bureaucracy and socialized redistribution scheme for another. Far more troubling, they are now signaling that while corporate tax reform remains on the table, personal tax reform might have to wait. Which is their way of saying that personal tax reform will never happen at all, or it will be a deceptive shell game where a tax reduction to the left is completely neutralized by new or increased taxes to the right. Everywhere the people turn, they see the elites being further enriched while they sink further into an inescapable financial morass.

Accordingly, the 2018 mid-term election is shaping up to be a bloodbath for Republicans, with betrayed and disgusted Republican voters staying at home in droves, or voting Democrat out of spite and revulsion against the politicians who have betrayed them yet again. November 2018 will therefore mark the end of the Trump presidency, with the Deep State firmly running the show from then on as it prepares for 2020. There is no one on the bench at this time that the Deep State can rely on as fully as Hillary Clinton, try as they must and do to widen their options.

For her part, Clinton is taking a page out of Madonna’s book by remaking herself. In a recent speech in San Francisco, gone was the campaign era, pastel-colored pant suit, replaced by a dark leather outfit reminiscent of what one would see at a bikers’ convention. Apparently, there is going to be no more Mrs. Nice Guy. She is making it clear that she will no longer even attempt to appeal to the “deplorables,” now broadened to include the “misogynists,” whom she blames for her election loss. Instead, she is now 100% focused on her traditional, high-potential, core-constituencies, while she also eyes a developing vote bonanza: the growing cohort of Trump supporters who feel deceived, are furious about it, and will be out for revenge.

Clinton’s addictions to power and control make her enormously valuable to the Deep State. They know that she will effectively advance their agenda and enforce their mandates. Her addiction to money assures them that she will do exactly what she is well-paid to do. The problem, as before, is her health. Her 6 April 2017 interview at the Women in the World conference, during which she was seated the entire time, showed that she remains obese. And her walk across the large stage to the interview site was slow and measured, undermining the credibility of her repeated comments about taking “long walks in the woods” to find solace after her election loss. Nonetheless, on several occasions during the 48 minute interview, she spoke as if she were a presidential candidate. We believe her addictions to power, control and money will overcome, at least temporarily, her addiction to consumption.

If the Deep State does, in fact, tap her for 2020, it will spend millions on her medical and psychological care throughout the election process, to ensure that she appears to the populace to be sound of body and mind. There will be no more fainting spells or mental fade-outs, and she will be buoyed up by the best doctors and drugs that money can buy. To the greatest extent possible, her campaign will be conducted electronically, to keep the wear and tear of physical campaigning to a minimum.

We expect that HRC will raise more money for her 2020 bid than was spent by every single presidential and Congressional candidate in 2016; $7.5 billion, at a minimum, which will shatter the previous, 2016 record for presidential campaign spending. Given the trillions of dollars that can be looted from the United States economy during a 4 year presidency, donors can generate an astounding Return on Investment from their contributions, which is exactly why they spend so much to buy politicians. Republican donations will collapse.

Numerous reports indicate that Bill Clinton’s health is failing. His marked weight loss is obvious, as are several other observable symptoms of decline. Unfortunately, none of us can live forever, particularly those who have led “full,” pedal-to-the-metal lives.

Running to become both the first woman and first widowed president, HRC will uncork a vast, additive sympathy vote that will sweep her to victory. Millions of previously non-HRC voters will feel that she deserves the presidency, at long last, after everything she has been through. The people will be told that she lost her beloved husband due, in large part, to the toll taken by his profound sadness over the surprise outcome of the unfair, “Russian-rigged” 2016 election. USA!, USA!, USA! She will be cast as a brave, determined fighter who has persisted against all odds to bring the people to the Promised Land of government-manufactured utopia.

HRC’s victory in 2020 is critically important to the Deep State because the United States will be entering the advanced looting phase by then. It will be clear that the deficits are endemic and non-containable; that the nation’s debt is propulsive and non-payable; that the systemic economic drags cannot be ameliorated; that the health care system has spun out of control; that the public and private pension systems are collapsing; and that the dollar is failing, portending systemic, punishing inflation for the people. The people will be desperate for salvation, and will be putty in the hands of professional prevaricators who smother them in soothing lies.

In the fast-disintegrating economy, the Deep State’s best and possibly last opportunity to loot the nation will be to go straight for the people’s money, which they will do with a vengeance. In the process, the Crony Communist overthrow of the United States that was started by Obama and Soros will be finalized. Crony Communism is where the serious money is for the Deep State, which explains why this is the track on which the country is traveling.

As we have previously pointed out, all Life Forces seek to evolve and expand, and communism is no exception. Crony Communism is the most virulent, destructive, ruthless and evolved form of communism ever developed, exponentially intensifying the absolute worst aspects of cronyism and communism. Crony Communism will result in communistic impoverishment and misery for the people, while awarding epic wealth and power to its orchestrators and thugs.

For maximum effectiveness and control, Crony Communism requires gun bans and cash elimination. The delay in the enactment of these agendas is the primary reason why the Deep State Crony Communists are so infuriated by HRC’s 2016 loss. For them, time is big money. And delays carry risks, such as the populace finally waking up to what is happening to them, and resisting their newly perceived enemy with all their might.

Now that Trump has capitulated to the Deep State, we can expect the cash elimination engine to go full power. Gun confiscation will be more difficult to implement at present, given Gorsuch, and will be substituted by continued, massive militarization of federal, state and local policing agencies. The United Airlines customer assault shows how this process is swiftly metastasizing throughout the nation. One way or another, the Deep State will be well prepared when they launch their war against the people’s money.

On 7 April 2017, in total defiance of fiscal, monetary and economic logic given Trump’s military action plus the clear economic degradation reflected by the March employment report and the Atlanta Fed’s revised 1Q GDP forecast, which printed at an astoundingly poor 0.6%, gold closed $18 per ounce below its daily high, while silver suffered a $0.68 per ounce intra-day flash crash, and closed $0.48 below its daily high.

Taken together, the Global Market Capitalization of owned physical gold and silver was smashed down by more than $120 billion ($120,000,000,000.00) on a day when it should have surged.

In other words, $120 billion was stolen from citizens worldwide by the Deep State plunderers who operate with impunity out of Wall Street, the City in London and several dark trading posts immune to visibility, supervision or regulation. We estimate that the criminals who conducted this latest price raid netted on that day at least $900 million in profits in the precious metals futures, options on futures, ETF and equities markets. While a one day $900 million profit (much of it made in seconds) might not sound like much in today’s multi-trillion dollar financial trading world, please keep in mind that this EXACT method of crime has been perpetrated literally thousands of times over a period of 37+ years, without any criminal prosecutions whatsoever. It is a crime of historic proportions, as we explained in a previous article on the subject. (“Gold and Silver Price Manipulation: the Biggest Financial Crime in History.”)

The Deep State looters are mono-maniacally focused on regularly smashing precious metals prices for two primary reasons: 1) It provides them with a vast, recurring, no-lose, totally-illegal-but-never-prosecuted profit source; and, 2) it is an extremely effective way for them to scare everyday citizens away from metals, which is a key DS objective. If the people ever figure out, en masse, that they would greatly benefit by transferring their money into physical precious metals, as opposed to keeping it in digital bank accounts that can be seized at any time and under any pretext, the Deep State’s looting opportunity will be reduced. The Deep State works 60x60x24x365, or every second of every day to prevent the people from having that “Aha Moment” of personal financial clarity and sanity.

If the people fully understood how resilient precious metals prices have been despite the constant, multi-year, 24 hour per day, criminal, full-spectrum Deep State manipulation campaign, they would gain a new-found respect for precious metals as assets. Greed-fueled frauds always collapse in time, and when the precious metals price manipulation fraud fails, gold, silver and platinum’s reflexive revaluation will almost certainly be historic.

The Deep State agenda is to eliminate cash as soon as possible and force the people’s money to become nothing but electrons housed in digital currency prisons euphemistically called banks. Next, they will deactivate the precious metals dealers’ bank accounts, making it extremely difficult for citizens who have not already done so to acquire precious metals. This action will be taken under the totally dishonest pretext of combatting drugs, crime, terrorism and other fake, so-called dreaded threats. When people get wind that this is coming, a precious metals buying stampede will break out, much the same way that the ammunition buying frenzy developed when rumors spread that Obama was going to sharply control, turbo-tax or even prohibit bullet sales. Time and time again throughout history, people have exhibited a passionate desire to buy the things they expect will be taken away from them. When the precious metals buying stampede is triggered, people throughout the west will learn in a hurry that the quantity of physical precious metals actually available to them is extremely limited and quickly vanishing. Supplies will completely disappear in a day or two, if not before, just as ammunition disappeared from the shelves, nationwide, during that buying explosion.

We fully realize there will be risks to metals ownership, such as possible government prohibition. But if it ever comes to that, the people will know for an absolute fact that capitalism and freedom have been murdered and will not be coming back to life anytime soon, if ever again in the citizens’ lifetimes. It will be every person for him or herself going forward from there. With physical precious metals, at least a person will have a chance; with a digital bank balance controlled by Deep State looters, a person will not. The more mainstream media propaganda you hear about the wonderful virtues of cash elimination, the less time you have to prepare, because they will be closing the window of opportunity on you.

Only a short five years ago, there was virtually no one in Venezuela who could even have imagined the total collapse of society and quality of life that was headed straight at them like the equivalent of a nuclear bomb. As we see, Maduro and his communist cronies are as rich as ever and living in sheer luxury, while citizens die in the streets and scavenge like rodents for scraps. History proves beyond any doubt whatsoever that it is NEVER any different when predatory politicians plunge a nation into communism to feed their lust for power and loot their way to wealth. And it will be no different in the United States when Obama and Soros’s Crony Communist revolution is handed off to the First Widow, for its consummation.

We believe that 2017 is a gift from God that provides thinking citizens an extraordinary, and perhaps last opportunity to seriously prepare for what is coming, and to push back with fury against the indescribably evil Deep State agenda that is methodically being crammed down the people’s throats. We urge readers to take to heart this gift of time, and use it for all it’s worth.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Gestapo America Via James Comey

“I was just following orders.” – James Comey is a board member of the Clinton Foundation – I am sure almost NONE of you knew that

Note: Every single syllable of every word Dr. Roberts writes below is accurate. The only “sidebar” I would add is that, for many of you who voted for Obama, Obama reneged on his promise to roll-back everything the Bush Admin had done to destroy the Constitution and made every Bush initiative more Constitutionally destructive.

FBI Director James Comey got Hillary off the hook but wants to put you on it. He is pushing hard for warrantless access to all of your Internet activity.

Comey, who would have fit in perfectly with Hitler’s Gestapo, tells Congress that the United States is not safe unless the FBI knows when every American goes online, to whom they are sending emails and from whom they are receiving emails, and knows every website visited by every American.

In other words, Comey wants to render null and void the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution and completely destroy your privacy rights.

The reason Washington wants to know everything about everyone is so that Washington can embarrass, blackmail, and frame on felony charges patriots who stand up in defense of the US Constitution and the rule of law, and dissidents who criticize Washington’s illegal wars, reckless foreign policies, and oppression of American citizens.

Washington’s demand for power has nothing to do with our security. It has to do with destroying the security that the US Constitution gives us.

The security that Comey wants to protect is not our security or the national security of the United States. Comey’s intent is to make Washington secure despite its violations of statutory law and the US Constitution. The way Comey intends to do this is by intimidating, harassing, and arresting Washington’s critics.

Comey wants the unconstitutional power to demand from the providers of telephone and Internet services all records and information about you. These demands are not to be subject to oversight by courts, and the communication companies that serve you are prohibited from telling you that all of your information has been given to the FBI.

US Senators rushed to stick their swords into the Fourth Amendment. John Cornyn slapped an FBI-written amendment on the Electronic Communications Privacy Act Amendments Act of 2015. This caused the American Civil Liberties Union and Amnesty International to withdraw their support for the act, which caused the act to be withdrawn.

Senator John McCain rushed to the aid of the FBI. This Constitution-hating senator proposed an amendment to a criminal justice appropriations bill that would use a provision in the unconstitutional PATRIOT Act to grant the unlimited unaccountable power to the FBI to totally destroy your privacy.

McCain’s amendment failed, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) changed his vote so that he could negate the Senate’s vote with a vote to reconsider.

The FBI’s senators will continue with amendments to legislation, related or not, until they deliver to the FBI the power it wants.

Unfortunately, most Americans today, unlike their forebears, are too ignorant and uneducated to know the value of the privacy rights that our Founding Fathers put in the US Constitution. The imbeciles say nonsense such as:  “I haven’t done anything wrong. I have nothing to fear.”   God help the imbeciles.

If the American people were sufficiently sophisticated, they perhaps would wonder why such a large chunk of the US Senate had rather represent the FBI than the American people, their constituents who elected them to represent the people in the state, not a police power in Washington.

Why are so many US senators more responsive to the FBI’s desire for Gestapo police power than they are to the civil liberties embodied in the US Constitution?

As the Bill of Rights Defense Committee and the Defending Dissent Foundation show, the Orlando shootings, the Dallas shootings and whatever shootings, real or staged, next occur have nothing to do with the FBI’s demand to completely destroy all privacy rights of the American people.

What’s that I hear? You say you knew nothing about this? Little wonder. Your media consist of people well paid to deceive you and to deliver you into a Police State. To strip you of all constitutional protection and deliver you unprotected to a police state is the function of the New York Times, Washington Post, Fox «News», CNN, the rest of the presstitute print and TV media and many Internet sites.

Adolf Hitler is alive and well in the United States, and he is fast rising to power.  Dr. Paul Craig Robert article link

Hillary Clinton Could Get Away With Murder – Defining Deviance Down

I don’t even know what to say anymore. The U.S. Government has collapsed into complete Banana Republic status. It’s a free-for-all for those in position to use their position of power for personal gain. Hillary Clinton will go down in the annals as one of the most corrupt politicians in the history of the world. She’s the “Idi Amin” of U.S. politics.

It was announced today that Dept of Justice has closed its investigation of Hillary. For me that decision was telegraphed when Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton illegally. I doubt the DoJ even opened a formal investigation. These people could care less if the portion of the public that is paying attention is pissed off. No one will do anything about it and what would you do if you wanted to do something about it?   Anyone who votes for Hillary is a complete moron.   Anyone who votes, period, is a moron.  Your vote does not matter.

My friend/colleague – John Titus, Best Evidence Productions – has written more commentary on the the planetary-sized political abortion called Washington, DC – enjoy:

The FBI’s announcement that it won’t recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton is not only a stunning repudiation of the rule of law, it’s a coronation of American royalty. The FBI told us that Hillary broke the law, but that it’s of no consequence because she, like a queen (or king), is above the law.

You don’t need to look beyond the four corners of the very FBI announcement that exonerates Clinton to see that she committed a crime carrying up to a 10-years sentence in prison. The FBI’s internal inconsistency—concluding that Clinton is above the very law that the FBI just finished showing that Clinton violated—is a glaring rejection of the rule of law, and a formal adoption of a legal system premised on royalty.

What’s so noteworthy is how far the FBI went out of its way to make it clear that while Hillary Clinton is above the law, the rest of us remain very much at its mercy (like serfs in a kingdom).

Before showing as much, let’s be clear about what the rule of law is, and about its mortal enemy, the rule of kings. When it comes to governance, there are two and only two systems. They are mutually exclusive. Either the law is reigns supreme over the land, or men do. It’s one or the other.

Since its inception, the U.S. has self-identified as a nation of laws, not of men. The U.S., of course, has never lived up to this impossibly perfect ideal, but there is no dispute whatsoever that the rule of law is the reigning ideal against which justice is measured. The negation of the rule of law is the reign of a king (or queen).

The American implementation of the rule of law has several corollaries, including:
(1) because the law is supreme, no one is above the law;
(2) there isn’t one set of rules for some people and a different set of rules for other people; and
(3) because the same laws must be applied equally in all cases, factually identical cases from the past determine how the law applies in future cases.

The rule of law rejects the notion that anyone is above the law. As such, it stands in diametric opposition to the royalty model, in which the king is the law. This royalty principle was most succinctly expressed by William Blackstone in his legal treatise: “The king can do no wrong.”

The FBI’s announcement openly mocks all three rule-of-law principles, as FBI Director James Comey himself made clear. In each and every instance, Comey bends the law around Hillary Clinton, exactly as a dutiful civil servant of the king would do.

1. No One But Hillary Clinton Is Above the Law

FBI Director James Comey made out a clear-cut case that Hillary Clinton violated 18 U.S.C. 793(f):

Untitled

2. Gross Negligence Is the Legal Standard for Ordinary People; for Hillary Clinton, the Legal Standard Is “Intent to Violate Laws”

By the express terms of 18 U.S.C. 793(f), criminal culpability exists where there is a finding of “gross negligence.” But James Comey informed us that the legal standard is different for Hillary Clinton and her coterie: “we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information”

3. While Hillary Is Free to Break National Security Laws Because She’s Special, You Aren’t

James Comey: “To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions. But that is not what we are deciding now.”

Well, there you have it. We’ve known for some time that the rule of law is dead in the U.S. What we didn’t know is who the new king or queen would be. The FBI just told us in three different ways.

All Hail, Queen Hillary—and keep your own noses clean, serfs.

Now let’s see how many peons, having been apprised by the highest authorities in the land that there is in fact a Queen ruling over them, actually line up to vote for Her Highness so as to advance their own subjugation. This massive public display of abject and willing servility, just 4 months away now, promises to be breathtaking.

Hillary Clinton Proves The U.S. Is Now A Total Banana Republic

When I was in high school studying history and government, my friends and I used to laugh at the Latin American Banana Republics.  A “Banana Republic” is one in which the ruling class of elites exploit Governmental power for their own benefit at the expense of Untitledthe rest of the population.  Rule of Law is replaced by Rule of Those in Charge.   The leaders rake in massive amounts of illegal wealth and stand completely immune from prosecution. (click to enlarge)

The saga of Hillary Clinton is the saga of the United States’ descent into Banana Republic status.  I knew when it was announced that she was “voluntarily” meeting with FBI Director James Comey that the fix was in.  I knew it before that.   I knew it when Bill Clinton illegally and unethically met with Loretta Lynch.  A meeting she knew better than to coordinate.  But that told me the fix was in.  Interestingly there’s a deep connection between Lynch and Comey.

I had my good friend and colleague, John Titus of Best Evidence Productions, write a guest commentary about the latest step into Banana Republic Hell taken by the U.S., led by Hillary Clinton…

Back in April, I went on record stating that Hillary Clinton would be completely exonerated:

Given their [Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey’s] prior associations with HSBC, they’re in on this whole game, they’re in on letting banks run the whole economy—the whole country. [The banks] are in full control of the the government. They’re in full control of the DOJ. They are in full control of prosecutorial decisions. And nothing is going to happen to Hillary Clinton, and I mean zero.

Coup D’etat:  The Banks Rule The U.S.  (25:16 mark if link goes to wrong timestamp)

This post explains that statement. Hopefully it can be used as a means of fast-forwarding to the end of ludicrously protracted episodes of Kabuki legal theater like the one we just witnessed.

Once you understand that the rule of law is dead in the U.S., that it’s been replaced by a small network of readily identifiable agents operating on behalf of criminal banking enterprises headed by Goldman Sachs, there’s no need to waste any time on stories like Hillary selling state secrets out of her basement, or whatever it is she does down there. You’ll spare yourself the embarrassment of ever believing that the outcome of cases like Clinton’s are ever in doubt.

In March of this year, I released a video called “The Veneer of Justice in a Kingdom of Crime,” which shows that the rule of law is a dead letter in the U.S. It also explains that the only alternative to the rule of law is the rule of men, and that in the U.S. that means Goldman Sachs:   Video Link

Goldman Sachs is a criminal enterprise. It perpetrated massive criminal frauds and got away with all of them. The worst of these was Goldman’s Hudson deal. The Senate and the media fixated on Abacus and Timberwolf. Those cases, though bad, are at least arguable. Hudson is not. It is black letter textbook criminal fraud.

Goldman pooled residential mortgages sitting on its books based on their high likelihood of failure. To dupe its customers into buying the doomed Hudson pool, Goldman put $6 million of its own money into Hudson and touted this fact in marketing materials. Secretly, though, Goldman bet $2 billion that Hudson would fail, and concealed its huge downside bet from investors. Goldman’s bet paid out $1.7 billion, which came directly from the pockets of the investors it deceived. It was a $1.7 billion theft, end of story.

The facts of Abacus and Timberwolf weren’t nearly as clean, which is probably why we heard about those instead of Hudson, which was a slam dunk.

But Goldman Sachs, which runs the Justice Department, exonerated itself of all wrongdoing. The two highest-ranking DOJ officials responsible for Goldman’s exoneration—Eric Holder and Lanny Breuer—came to the DOJ from Covington & Burling, Goldman’s law firm. After the 5-year statute of limitations for criminal fraud ran out, both men returned to Covington. Each makes several million dollars a year.

During their temp assignments at the DOJ, both men formally declared the rule of law to be dead. That’s a big deal. It’s one thing for officials to disregard the law as a matter of factual opinion. What Breuer and Holder did was another matter altogether: they openly announced that the rule of law is dead in principle too. It’s a very big and very dangerous difference.

This happened in late 2012 and early 2013—not long after the DOJ exonerated Goldman. Both Breuer and Holder went on record and repeatedly stated that criminal laws would not be enforced against certain banks because doing so would destabilize the financial system. They didn’t cite any authority for this radical position because there isn’t any. The lack of any legal authority isn’t surprising since the rule of law dates back to the year 1215, and no law since that time would be premised on the notion that the law itself can be freely ignored.

Instead of citing any law, Breuer and Holder both claimed that “experts” were making decisions about financial destabilization. Here’s the problem. The only “experts” who appear in the record are Wall Street lawyers and CEOs generally and Goldman Sachs in particular. In other words, the TBTF banks tell the DOJ that criminal prosecution will destabilize the financial system, and the DOJ obeys. The law comes second, which in a 2-way race means it’s dead last.

So the rule of law has been dead in the U.S. for some time now, and it’s been supplanted by Goldman Sachs, which rules by edict. The “Veneer” video drills into how we know it’s Goldman in granular detail.

Of course, Breuer later lied and said that his destabilization “experts” came from the government. The problem for Breuer is that both houses of congress investigated his claim and couldn’t find any such regulators. That’s because there aren’t any. Lanny Breuer is just a liar.

Again: the only financial stability experts of record are Wall Street banks themselves, whom Breuer freely admitted came to his conference to tell him that they’d destroy the economy if he prosecuted. Goldman Sachs is the only bank in that regard that’s been disclosed by name so far.

Now, Goldman’s candidate in the presidential race is Hillary Clinton. This is how it was easy to set the odds of a Hillary Clinton indictment at zero from day one.

But what about Loretta Lynch, the Attorney General, and James Comey? Couldn’t they indict (Lynch) or at least recommend indictment (Comey)? After all, they’re not from Goldman’s law firm.

True, but both were very carefully vetted by the financial criminals at—interestingly enough—HSBC. HSBC is an admitted criminal money launderer for drug dealers and terrorists. It was the money-laundering case against HSBC, in fact, where Eric Holder announced that he wouldn’t prosecute due to fears of destabilization. This happened in December 2012.

Lynch and Comey both played a role at HSBC.

Loretta Lynch was HSBC’s “prosecutor.” When Holder punted on the HSBC case, Lynch did something highly unusual: she kept the case open on Judge John Gleeson’s docket. Gleeson was openly puzzled by the move, but saw no reason not to go along with the procedure, however odd, since Lynch and HSBC had both agreed to it.

What Judge Gleeson didn’t know was that the HSBC case, having been held open like it was, would be used as a pretext for the DOJ to claim that it couldn’t identify regulators on active cases (like HSBC). That’s exactly what Mythili Raman claimed when asked by Congress in May of 2013. It was a way for her to duck the fact that Breuer had been lying through his teeth, and that all of the DOJ’s financial destabilization experts were, in fact, the banks themselves. Less than a year after that hearing, Raman ended her 17-year DOJ career and went to…. Breuer and Holder’s law firm. See how this works?

This brings us to James Comey. In early 2013, Comey joined HSBC’s board of directors. Only then was Comey’s name floated as a replacement for FBI Director Robert Mueller. By accepting blood money from HSBC, Comey signaled the financial criminals that he’d play ball and ignore the law, as he did today when he focused on intent rather than gross negligence, which is sufficient by itself for indictment and conviction.

Lynch sent the same signal to the financial criminals in charge by entering into a screwy settlement agreement that flummoxed a long-standing judge but that provided cover for Lanny Breuer’s preposterous lies about government regulators assessing the financial impact of criminal prosecutions.

Whenever you want to know how a high-profile case like Clinton’s will turn out, just turn off the TV and throw the New York Times and other mainstream piles of misinformation into the trash can. Just spend 10 minutes or so on google looking at the bios of the key decision makers, and the clues will hit you in the face harder than Earnie Shavers, I promise.

Is World War Three Unavoidable?

I was first dragged, somewhat unwillingly, on to the “dark side” back in 2001.  I was spending my time shorting the market, mostly still-overvalued tech stocks at a daytrading shop in Denver.   I met a guy who had been studying the precious metals market and all of the issues connected to gold and the evolution of fiat currency since 1971.  Really, this development dates back to the founding of the Fed in 1913.  And, really, it dates back to when President Lincoln allowed someone to use Government-issued war bonds as legal tender to settle a debt.

After doing my own due diligence on all of the above, I concluded about two years later that what was developing economically and geopolitically would eventually lead to World War Three.  Talk about largely playing by myself in the doom and gloom sandbox…

While my opinions don’t need to count, Paul Craig Roberts has written must-read commentary which explains why he believes that WW3 is inevitable:

The events of September 11, 2001, are regarded by informed people as “the new Pearl harbor” that the neoconservatives said was necessary in order to begin their wars of conquest in the Middle East. Paul O’Neil, President George W. Bush’s first Treasury Secretary, has stated pubicly that the agenda of President Bush’s first meeting with his cabinet was the invasion of Iraq. This invasion was planned prior to 9/11. Since 9/11 Washington has destroyed in whole or part eight countries and now confronts Russia both in Syria and Ukraine.

I’ve been following Dr. Roberts’ since the mid-2000’s, when his commentary was published by CounterPunch.  Back then everything that has unfolded up til now was regarded as “wild conspiracy theories.”   It’s one thing for an amateur hack like myself to predict an eventual World War, but when someone with the career path of Dr. Roberts puts this reality in front of us, it’s worth reading and heeding:

At this point in time, nuclear war can only be avoided in two ways. One way is for Russia and China to surrender and accept Washington’s hegemony. The other way is for an independent leader in Germany, the UK, or France to rise to office and withdraw from NATO. That would begin a stampede to leave NATO, which is Washington’s prime tool for causing conflict with Russia and, thereby, is the most dangerous force on earth to every European country and to the entire world. If NATO continues to exist, NATO together with the neoconservative ideology of American hegemony will make nuclear war inevitable.

Just for the record, don’t blame this on Obama.  He’s just a pathetic hand-puppet for the real forces of power behind the scenes who are controlling U.S. geopolitical policy – the Deep State.   History will be a harsh judge on Obama’s Presidency, but he’s nothing more than a figure-head who was inserted into the post because he was completely malleable and lacked any DC power base.  Hell, all he wants to do is learn how to tee-off without slicing the ball out of bounds and how to avoid 3-putting every green.

Make No Mistake: A Hillary Clinton Presidency Would Be A Disaster

I have said for years that Hillary Clinton is a neo-con dressed in drag.  She is one of the most vile politicians in the history of this country.  Hillary should be mounting a legal defense against spending the rest of her life in prison for criminal fraud and treason rather than operating as the front-runner to be the next President.  The following is a re-post from The News Doctors that delves into this topic:

TND Editor’s Note:  Politically, Doug Henwood would easily be defined as a true progressive, which makes his observations about Hillary all the more compelling.  Most progressives that support Hillary have no concept that she’s a warmonger and spear carrier for global empire and special interests.  But then, one need only watch Marc Dice’s man-on-the-street interviews (e.g., click here) to get a sense for how little thinking goes on in the minds of some Hillary supporters.

Make no mistake. A Clinton presidency would be disastrous – the worst of all possible deplorable choices, none worthy of any public office, all aspirants beholden to wealth, power and privilege exclusively.

Don’t let their duplicitous rhetoric fool you. They’re all cut out of the same cloth. Otherwise, they wouldn’t get public attention. Populist Green Party aspirant Jill Stein gets none.

A Clinton presidency would be nightmarish for the vast majority of Americans and world peace. It’ll combine the worst of George Bush and Obama, an agenda of endless wars of aggression, maybe targeting Russia, China, and/or Iran, corporate favoritism, destroying social justice, and full-blown tyranny against resisters.

Doug Henwood is editor and publisher of the Left Business Observer. It covers “economics and politics in the broadest sense,” discussing what everyone needs to know, suppressed in mainstream reporting.

In November 2014, his Harpers article headlined “Stop Hillary! Vote no to a Clinton dynasty.” It bears repeating. A second Clinton presidency is the worst of all deplorable choices.

The U.S. Is A Complete Financial And Political Fraud

Perhaps most emblematic of this complete fraud and corruption that has engulfed our system is the spectacle of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy for President.  She is clearly the front-running candidate for the Democrats and likely would win a head-to-head against any of the Republicans.   How is this sanely possible?

Anyone who bothered to pick up a newspaper just a few times per year since 1991, when Bill was first running for President, knows that Hillary is probably the most corrupt attorney and politician in the history of the country.  Whitewater and her “successful” foray in cattle futures (anyone remember those?) don’t even garner scrutiny anymore because her list of dirty laundry is so long and filthy.   Needless to say, Hillary Clinton should be in front of a firing squad – not in front of Congress justifying her role in Benghazi and the likely next President of the U.S.

Anyone who supports her candidacy is either woefully ignorant, mildly retrarded or insanely naive.

Amazon.com:   I just did quick glance at AMZN’s latest earnings report.  The stock is up 10% to an all-time high on what is exceptionally misleading “headline” earnings numbers.  Yes, it “beat” its EPS and revenue “bogeys” but the entire stock market seems to be giving Amazon a mulligan on the truth.

One again the Company’s business operations failed to generate cash flow.  Directly from its 10-Q’s state of cash flows, the only reason AMZN’s operations produced a positive cash inflow is due to the fact that the Company significantly stretched out its payables – this is despite the fact that its receivables declined – and the Company took in $1.7 billion in Prime and gift card deposits.  We know Bezos ran two separate heavy Prime promotions during Q3, including one that incorporated a big discount to the “membership” fee.  AMZN has admitted that it loses at least $2 billion per year on Prime.

Furthermore, included in AMZN’s numbers is only about half of the amount that it pays out stock-based salary compensation.   I discuss this aspect in-depth in my report.  If AMZN were forced to expense up front for GAAP purposes the entire cost of its stock-based salary payments, it would wipe out completely AMZN’s reported operating income of $409 million and turn the GAAP-based “good” news into a loss.

Amazon’s stock “aura” is the stock market equivalent of Hillary Clinton’s Presidency:   Complete unfettered fraud and deception.  By the way, insiders took advantage of the price of the stock and literally dumped shares during Q3, mostly during August.

The September existing home sales report:   I’ll have more to say on this soon, but the National Association of Realtors statistical Houdini’s managed to convert a steep 6% “unadjusted” drop in monthly home sales from August to September into a “magical” seasonally adjusted 5% annualized rate increase.

On average and in general, this is almost impossible because going back to 2005, existing home sales have declined from August to September every single year except 2013.   The NAR refuses to disclose its seasonal adjustment calculations as I have emailed them several times asking for clarification.   It can therefore only be considered a completely corrupted metric.

The stock market appears to headed for all-time highs again, this is despite that the fact that just about every single non-Government produced macro economic indicator which shows that the economy is already in a recession.   The Government debt limit is about to be raised close to $20 trillion.  Based on Gallup surveys,  the average consumer has a negative outlook for the economy and plans on reducing their monthly household discretionary spending.

McDonald’s stock has bounced 17% since September 1st, despite the fact that its revenues are in terminal decline and the franchisees have expressed a gloomy prediction for the fast food chain’s future:   LINK.    The Company reported a “beat” of the expected earnings but this was achieved through stock buybacks  and a 42-cent charge for tax reserves taken in Q3 2014, both factors of which presented the illusion that MCD had earnings growth this quarter.   But its revenues, like every other big American company, are declining.   Without the GAAP gimmicks, MCD’s EPS would have dropped 15%.  Yet, the stock is at an all-time high.

The U.S. financial system is the biggest, most fraudulent Ponzi scheme in history.  When you peel back the layers of lies, deception and fraud, the U.S. is a crumbling empire.   Go back and rewatch some of the footage of Hillary Clinton’s facial expressions while she’s being “grilled” by Congress.   It’s hard for me to even look at the modern Madusa’s face without turning away – all I can see are venous snakes coming out of her skull in place of what should be hair.  Hillary Clinton is pure evil incarnate.

For me Hillary Clinton represents just how far down the road to doom the United States has traveled.

“Julian Assange Is Going To Be Hillary Clinton’s Worse Nightmare”

“The woman is a flat out liar,” he said. “She’s a woman who is devoted to the dollar rather the country. And I think her election would be a disaster to the American people.”  – G. Gordon Liddy, architect of the Watergate scandal – LINK

I find it absolutely mind-blowing that one of the leading front-runners to be the next President – Hillary Clinton – is someone who appears to have committed multiple felonies and high treason in her term as Obama’s Secretary of State.  There is absolutely no question that she sold U.S. policy decisions to the highest foreign bidder in return for large “donations” to the Clinton Foundation.

The fact that a significant portion of the population would vote for her to be President is another obvious sign that the United States is collapsing in a sea of ignorance and apathy. It’s like watching the chickens in the chicken yard cheering for Colonel Sanders when he shows up to greet them with a smile while holding a machete behind his back.

Rather than running for President, Hillary Clinton should be in the process of defending herself from going to jail for a long time, if not for life.

“It’s obvious what she has done,” said Liddy on Clinton’s private email server. “She has cherry picked information to go public. Destroyed and or concealed the rest.”  – G. Gordon Liddy from link above

When I first watch this interview with Kim Dotcom in which he said Julian Assange would start releasing material that would be damaging to Hillary Clinton, I was less than hopeful that it would actually happen:

But then I woke up to a news report from the International Business Times which reported that, despite Hillary Clinton’s insistence that she was not involved in the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement, her State Department was intimately involved in the process of drafting and negotiation the deal:

At a Congressional hearing in 2011, Clinton told lawmakers that “with respect to the TPP, although the State Department does not have the lead on this — it is the United States Trade Representative — we work closely with the USTR.” Additionally, State Department cables reviewed by International Business Times show that her agency — including her top aides — were deeply involved in the diplomatic deliberations over the trade deal.  –  International Business Times

The reports were released by Julian Assange’s Wikileaks.  In the video clip linked above, Kim Dotcom has indicated that Assange will be releasing a plethora of information which will bury Hillary Clinton – hopefully once and for all.

Per the test of history, hubris is the Achilles’ heel of corrupt politicians with blind ambition to achieve the pinnacle of wealth and power.  Hillary has been enabled by the blind devotion of the brain-dead Americans who support her and by her access to power channels which have facilitated her ability to cover-up or destroy any attempts to undermine her path to the Presidency.

The entire U.S. political system, especially at the Federal level – including the judicial branch – has lapsed into the biggest cesspool of corruption and criminality in recorded history.  Hillary Clinton is a felon who runs her political organization like a Sicilian mafia don.  While nothing will save the U.S. from ultimate collapse, the political and legal destruction of Hillary Clinton might enable the hoi polloi to enjoy a few more waning hours before the country’s final implosion.

Does It Really Matter Who Uncovered Hillary’s Email Crimes?

I love the NY Post.  It is often smeared as a scandal/gossip rag.  But it is perhaps the only mainstream media newspaper that reports some truth.   Apparently now the Clinton “camp” is accusing the Obama “camp” of leaking the Hillary Rodham’s email scandal.  Who cares who leaked it?  If Valerie Jarrett did indeed open up this coffin of vipers, it would be the first – and so far only – honest accomplishment of Obama’s administration – regardless of motive…

Six separate probes into Hillary’s performance have been ­going on at the State Department. I’m told that the e-mail scandal was timed to come out just as Hillary was on the verge of formally announcing that she was running for president — and that there’s more to come.
