Trump’s Political Pivot And A Weaker Dollar Drive Gold Higher

We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to office 
– Aesop, 620 BC – 560 BC

Question:  How can you tell when a politician is lying?  Answer:  His/her lips are moving.  In the last few weeks Trump has become another puppet of the Deep State and his new policies suspiciously resemble the campaign platform on which Hillary Clinton ran for president – a least on the big geopolitical and economic issues.  To be sure, at least for now there appears to be some differences between a Trump White House and a hypothetical HRC White House on domestic and social issues.

Those of you who voted for Trump as a vote not to elect Hillary have ended up with “Hillary.”  Those of you voted for Hillary, and thought you lost, have ended up in many respects with a surrogate for Hillary.   It took less than 12 weeks since the inauguration for Trump to adopt the stance of a true Washington politician.   This is where the “elected” official pivots away from the public interest and toward the interests of the Deep State:  Big oil, big defense, big healthcare and, of course, Too Big To Fail Wall Street.  Congratulations Donald.  You’ve passed the Beltway Test.  Welcome to “The Club.”

Of course, you are “blind” if you didn’t think this would happen once Trump took office and let Hillary, her gang of criminals and the Clinton Slush Fund Foundation off the hook after threatening her with prison during the election debates.

Anti-gold apologists will attribute the remarkable move higher in the price of gold this week to the heightened geopolitical tensions between Russia and the U.S. over Syria plus the North Korea situation.   While this might have had some influence on the price move in gold, the primary drivers are economic, financial and structural.

By “structural” we mean the quiet implementation of a digital gold accumulation system between Shanghai, Dubai and Europe.  In China, this system will let the public buy a “digital” form of gold in tiny increments and go into participating banks and take possession of that gold.  Rory Hall has presented two important interviews on this topic on The Daily Coin that merit attention on this topic:    Gold, China, Trump and Economic Collapse, with Ken Shortgen, and China Moves 30% More Funds Into Physical Gold, with Jeff Brown.

While geopolitical and economic factors are pushing the price of gold higher, the extreme dislocation between the western Central Bank short position in gold via several different forms of paper gold and the amount of available physical gold to deliver into buyers’ hands is going to move gold in a way that will shock and awe everyone except maybe the hardiest gold “bugs.”  The two interviews posted above will help explain why.

Finally, as we presented here after Trump was elected, a newly implemented weak dollar policy will springboard the price of gold higher, which is what we witnessed yesterday after Trump affirmed that his administration favors taking the dollar lower in an inevitably failed attempt to revive the competitiveness of U.S. exports.   The Shadow of Truth explores these issues in more detail in today’s episode:

This May Be Headed For World War Three

When everything else fails, start a war…

I’ve always said that the U.S. Government would start a World War when it was pushed to the brink of having to disclose that fact that it no longer has any gold and that the U.S. financial and economic system is nothing but one massive Ponzi scheme that rests on an unaccountably enormous maze of derivatives, debt and fraud.  We saw evidence of no gold in the cupboard when the Fed failed to deliver on Germany’s request for immediate repatriation of over 600 tonnes of gold.  That saga is still being written.

Following this line of thinking, it makes senses that the mainstream media is not questioning or spending resources on reporting the escalating military activities in Syria. Especially in light of the fact that the mainstream media has caught on to the fact that the U.S. Government is primary cause of the refugee problem in Europe.

I wasn’t shocked when the U.S. Government announced that it was ramping up its military efforts in Syria to “fight ISIS,” or whatever conjured up acronym is being used to label the world’s newest “boogieman.”

This is clearly a thinly disguised attempt to move into Syria and remove the Assad Government, which would enable the U.S. Government to achieve the dual purpose of moving forward with the pipeline that Big Oil wants to put through Syria and to consolidate U.S. military control around the Middle East.

And I was equally unimpressed when Russia announced that it would be moving military equipment and personnel into and around the Assad Government stronghold areas in order to help fortify the “effort” against ISIS.

We saw this movie playing in September 2013, when the Obama regime tried to toss out Assad and put its own puppet in power.  Russia drew a line in the sand from which Obama backed off.

This time around it looks a bit more serious.  Literally a few days after Russia announced its reinforced military presence in Syria, the U.S. exercised its control over the Greek Government by imploring it to block Russia from using Greek airspace.

Yesterday Bulgaria announced that it would deny Russia use of its airspace for military transport planes, which were ostensibly transporting humanitarian supplies to Syria.

This is a clear escalation in the military conflict that has been slowly heating up between Russia and the United States.  Perhaps the most troubling aspect of what is fomenting is not the finger-pointing propaganda between the U.S. and Russian Governments, but the fact that the media – especially in the U.S. – is spending very little resources on covering and reporting this brewing war.

The cover stories for the big wars throughout history have always been religious or political in nature.  But the root cause can always be traced to underlying economic causes.  We know the entire world is plunging into a deep recession.  With the global balance of economic power shifting from West to East – perhaps best symbolized by the massive flow of gold from West to East – my biggest fear is that the U.S. will act in desperation in order to cling to the global hegemonic power that is slipping from its grasp…this is how the big wars always start.  The only difference is that historically, the Empire in collapse did not possess weapons which could literally incinerate the earth…
