The FEDERAL RESERVE’S Hands Are Increasingly Tied… Here’s Why:

Will the Fed’s 0.9% equity capital balance sheet limit QT?

by Dan Kurz, DK Analytics.com:

It really is absurd, isn’t it, the Federal Reserve cabal’s balance sheet? 0.9% equity capital or debt that is 111x equity. A closer and broader look (and a follow-up of sorts): That leverage spells huge Fed exposure to rising bond yields/falling bond prices. Same bonds’ durations — how long it takes for an investor to be repaid the bond’s price determined by the bond’s total cash flows — are particularly lengthy given (artificially) low interest rates and the associated lofty valuations or “bubbles.” Those bubbles, or valuations divorced from constructive capital preservation and sound return prospects, are thanks to nearly a decade of globally-orchestrated financial repression that has pushed bond yields to historic lows, in the process eviscerating price discovery and thus free market capitalism-based pricing.

In the ultimate financial deformation, as of January 2018, globally speaking there was over $7trn in negative yielding “Frankenstein” bonds; in other words, creditors who are PAYING for the right to lend their money to debtors! Those bonds’ twilight zone valuations stand to be crushed by a sustained rise in interest rates given their extreme valuation sensitivity to rising interest rates; call them “zero-coupon bond bastard cousins,” i.e., bonds were YTM would move to zero from a negative return!

PROOF: FBI Carefully Planned Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Trip, Tried To Cover It Up

by Patrick Howley, Big League Politics:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) under director James Comey carefully plotted logistics and security for President Bill Clinton’s meeting on an airplane tarmac with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch during the 2016 campaign.

The FBI then attempted to cover up the tarmac meeting by targeting a Bureau whistleblower. The FBI worked with its offices around the country to execute the plan.

Breaking Judicial Watch emails (READ THEM HERE) show an FBI plot to cover up Bill Clinton’s meeting with Lynch, which Lynch claimed was just about golf and grandchildren.

Will Rising Interest Rates Push Gold Higher?

0

from First Macro Capital:

There has been an incredible amount of chatter as to how many times the Federal Reserve is going to raise rates in 2018, and the speed at which it will raise them by. For gold investors, the old question lingers, “What will rising interest rates mean for the price of gold?” The simple viewpoint has been that rising rates are bad for gold because gold is not an interest-bearing asset. Why would you own gold if interest rates are rising and gold doesn’t pay you anything? There are typically two sides to the debate on the impact of gold from the change in interest rates. There are those who see rising interest rates as good for gold, and there are those that see rising interest rates as harmful to the price of gold. But who is right? We look to see which side is correct? Could they both be wrong? Or both are right?

Nine Major Problems with James Comey’s Involvement with the Trump Hoax Dossier

0

by Aaron Klein, Breitbart:

James Comey took to Twitter on Saturday to respond to an earlier tweet by President Donald Trump about the Russia probe, with the former FBI director exclaiming that the “American people will hear my story very soon.”
“And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not,” Comey added.

Comey was responding to Trump’s charge that the ex-FBI chief was aware of illicit activity at the FBI regarding the probe into unsubstantiated claims of Russian collusion.
