Stocks and Precious Metals Charts – We’ll Meet Again

from jessescrossroadscafe:

“Many people think of our times as being the last before the end of the world. The evidence of horror all around us makes this seem possible.

But isn’t that an idea of only minor importance? Doesn’t every human being, no matter which era he lives in, always have to reckon with being accountable to God at any moment? Can I know whether I’ll be alive tomorrow morning?

A bomb could destroy all of us tonight. And then my guilt would not be one bit less than if I perished together with the earth and the stars.”

Sophie Scholl, Munich, 1942

The markets caught a whiff of fear, and the air started quickly coming out of the excess liquidity fueled bubbles in financial assets.

Gold and silver caught a bid in a pretty clear ‘flight to safety’ trade.

But at the same time the drops in the markets were long expected and fairly controlled, despite the hike in the VIX which we also saw today.

The wiseguy rally into the close in equities yesterday had me laughing a bit. I went into today fairly short stocks and very long gold and even some silver.

I only mention the short stocks positions to let you know that I took most of them off into the close. I don’t like to hang on to these leveraged index shorts for very long.

We *might* have more downside action in stocks coming. That is pretty much up to the latest from Twitter Dum and the Kim Chi Kid.

How to Build Your Own Society Starts Here

from Daily Bell:

Dale Brown realized decades ago that if he wanted to help secure the most dangerous neighborhoods in Detroit, he had to appeal to building owners’ wallets, not their humanity. They can make more money when people don’t get murdered in their neighborhoods. Dale’s company makes money training people to de-escalate situations for non-violent outcomes.

Joe Quirk announced that the Seastead he is helping build in French Polynesia has been declared legal and beneficial by a third party French law firm. The project will also include 100 acres of beachfront property administered under the same special laws as the floating island.

Michael Castle Miller is excited about progress in Jordan in helping refugees. It is not about confining them to camps or giving them handouts. The way to help is by giving them the freedom to work and organize their lives. Refugee Cities finds solutions for hundreds of thousands of people displaced by war and poverty in their home countries.

These are a few of the people who spoke yesterday at the San Francisco Startup Societies Summit. The Startup Societies partnered with D10e to deliver a conference connecting the foremost thinkers and doers creating the governing structures of the future.

Governing can be done better. We need experimentation to see what works and what doesn’t. That is what connects everyone in this room.

Manager of World’s Largest Hedge Fund Says Buy Gold

by Peter Schiff, SchiffGold:

Bridgewater Associates founder Ray Dalio said investors should buy gold.

Bridgewater manages about $160 billion in assets according to its website, and ranks as the worlds largest hedge fund.

In a LinkedIn post, Dalio wrote, “prospective risks are now rising and do not appear appropriately priced in.” He specifically cited geopolitical tensions, especially the war of words between North Korea and the United states, and the looming deadline for Congress to raise the debt ceiling.

 

The emerging risks appear more political than economic, which makes them especially challenging to price in. Most immediately, during the calm of the August vacation season, we are seeing 1) two confrontational, nationalistic, and militaristic leaders playing chicken with each other, while the world is watching to see which one will be caught bluffing, or if there will be a hellacious war, and 2) the odds of Congress failing to raise the debt ceiling (leading to a technical default, a temporary government shutdown, and increased loss of faith in the effectiveness of our political system) rising. It’s hard to bet on such things, one way or another, so the best that one can do is be neutral to such possibilities.”

Dalio said he is “humble” when it comes to assessing political matters and didn’t make any predictions about particular events. But he emphasized the importance of staying liquid, diversified. and not becoming overly exposed to to any particular economic outcome.

We can also say that if the above things go badly, it would seem that gold (more than other safe haven assets like the dollar, yen, and treasuries) would benefit, so if you don’t have 5-10{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of your assets in gold as a hedge, we’d suggest that you relook at this. Don’t let traditional biases, rather than an excellent analysis, stand in the way of you doing this.”

The price of gold has surged as investors seek safe-haven amidst increasing geopolitical tensions. Gold was up about 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} this week and hit a 2-month high. Pres. Trump promised “fire and fury” if North Korea continues its threatening posture. The next day, he doubled down saying his warning wasn’t strong enough.

Commodities expert Dennis Gartman echoed Dalio sentiments during an interview on CNBC saying, “gold is about to break out on the upside strongly.” He advised having 10 to 15{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of your portfolio in gold.

One never knows when geopolitical risks will arise. One never knows when something untoward will happen economically. So yes, you should have some part of your portfolio in [gold]. I think you should have a tad bit more than 5 or 10{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} at this point. The stock market looks a little vulnerable. The geopolitical circumstances are getting worse and worse. So, I think you probably need to bring that up to 10 to 15{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528}, rather than 5 to 10.”

Gartman not only expressed concern about the saber rattling between the US and North Korea, but also inflationary pressures, and the fact that monetary authorities have been expanding supply reserves.

In an interview on RT, Peter Schiff also emphasized that it’s important to look beyond the political crisis of the day, and that we need to keep our eye on the Federal Reserve.

At some point, I do expect people to embrace gold. Not necessarily because of the geopolitical aspect, but because of the inflationary aspects, because people realize these fiat currencies  are going to lose a lot of purchasing power, that a lot of central banks are stuck at the zero bound, and even if they raise interest rates slightly, they’re going to lower them back down, and they keep doing quantitative easing. So, I think people will be drawn back to gold for the monetary properties it has had for centuries.”

CNN Is Reporting “the 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} Are Bugging Out”-Something Evil This Way Comes

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

50{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the Silicone Valley billionaire elite are building underground bunkers and their numbers are growing exponentially. Why? What do they know that we don’t? Bankers are leaving the country. Many of our leaders have escape plans that have leaked out (i.e. Dick Cheney). CNN reported 3 days ago that the 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} billionaires are bugging out.

Relevant Background to the Elite Bugging Out

A migration to underground hideouts began almost 5 years ago in earnest for members of the alphabet soup agency retirees. I knew one of these “refugees” personally and he pointed to 2015 as the time when he anticipated that all hell was going to break loose. I wrote an article about the defection of my FEMA contact, his family and like-minded individuals from FEMA and DHS,  almost five years ago.

Pastor Lindsay Williams sent me an email regarding a survival tip for the difficult times ahead. Pastor Williams has been a guest on my show several times and I sent him back an email asking when he would like to come back on my show. He responded that he has stopped doing interviews. His message indicated it is almost time to stop talking and to start preparing for some very dark days.

How do I know?  Some of my very best contacts have told me that it is time to stop warning the people, because it is now time to start hiding from the wrong people. My initial reaction is to not believe them, but there are too many well-placed sources to not take this advice seriously.

Jim Marrs Saw the Warning on the Wall Five Years Ago

I first became aware of the elite bugging out in an interview on The Common Sense Show, the late Jim Marrs discussed how approximately 400-500 top level bankers have left their positions and have gone into seclusion. Marrs reminded my listening audience of how the elite have developed seed vaults which only they have access to. Marrs was clearly alluding to the fact that some very bad events are coming and the global elite are aware of it and are moving to meet the threat.  I have firsthand knowledge of four ex-fed officials and their families who have relocated to safety enclaves when doing so was very disruptive to their respective family’s lives. Increasingly, it is looking like some major event(s) is/are coming and persons with insider information are attempting to remove themselves from harm’s way.

Another media friend of mine, Paul Martin, of Revolution Radio, has been repeatedly telling me that several key contacts of his from the various alphabet soup agencies as well as the military have, or are, leaving the country in anticipation of what is coming. In the past several months, I have had a number of phone calls from media people who are telling me that their sources are repeating the same mantra, or they are just dropping off of  the radar.

Silicone Valley

Two months ago, I raised the question on why Silicone Valley executives are going underground. The rate is increasing exponentially as 50{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the Silicone Valley billionaire elite are building underground bunkers. Why? What do they know that we don’t?

Here is what they these people know, they cavort with the military industrial complex, therefore, they have inside track to this kind of information.  We should all be a little bit more than worried. Here’s a recap of what I previously reported in this ever-increasing trend.

Tomorrow, I will be publishing some globalist population projections with regard to the United States and the information is terrifying.

Even Fake News CNN Is Reporting That the 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} Billionaires Are Preparing for the “Apocalypse”

As reported by CNN:

“…Many of the world’s elite, including hedge fund managers, sports stars and tech executives (Bill Gates is rumored to have bunkers at all his properties) have chosen to design their own secret shelters to house their families and staff.

Gary Lynch, general manager of Texas-based Rising S Company, says 2016 sales for their custom high-end underground bunkers grew 700{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} compared to 2015, while overall sales have grown 300{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} since the November US presidential election alone…”

When the mainstream is reporting what has previously been denied, we need to ask ourselves what is coming?

Researchers May Have Found A Way To Beat HIV, And It All Stems From Cows

0

by Brianna Acuesta, True Activist:

Cows may be the answer to something that’s not related to food.

The continued existence of cattle around the world can be pinned on humans’ need to consume them, whether that’s by using their milk or eating their meat. Besides this primary function, and the fact that they can rapidly eat grass, there doesn’t seem to be a huge need for cows otherwise, save for companionship. However, researchers may have just found another complex purpose for these sturdy creatures that has nothing to do with food but everything to do with health.

If you’re not familiar with HIV or are unsure why it’s so difficult to control, here’s the breakdown: the Human Immunodeficiency Virus infects a specific white blood cell that is built to attack viruses, making it not only difficult to detect the virus but nearly impossible to attack. On the off chance that a human’s immune system is able to create antibodies to defeat the virus, which has been observed before, it takes years for this to happen and by then the virus has already evolved so much that it can overcome the antibodies. As a result, the best response to HIV are bNAbs, or broadly neutralising antibodies, which can attack multiple forms of virus at once.

“From the early days of the epidemic, we have recognized that HIV is very good at evading immunity, so exceptional immune systems that naturally produce broadly neutralizing antibodies to HIV are of great interest – whether they belong to humans or cattle,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Researchers turned to cows after recognizing that a complex immune and digestive system might be the key to combatting the virus. Since cattle have a ruminant digestive system that allows grass to sit for a period of time in order to ferments, scientists knew that their systems are riddled with hostile bacteria that they deal with on a daily basis. They decided to test the animals to see if they already contained or could produce the necessary antibodies to defeat HIV and its rapidity.

For the experiment, injected 117 calves with the virus antigens and tested them regularly to see how their bodies responded. Since HIV is not natural to cattle, as it started as a virus for primates that mutated to attack human cells, their bodies would have to produce an all new response to the infection. The results were “mind-blowing,” as researchers said, as the cattle began producing bNAbs to fight the virus within weeks.

“The response blew our minds,” Dr. Devin Sok, one of the researchers, told BBC News. “It was just insane how good it looked. In humans, it takes three to five years to develop the antibodies we’re talking about. This is really important because we hadn’t been able to do it period. Who would have thought cow biology was making a significant contribution to HIV?”

Bill Clinton Gets Savaged on Twitter For His Selective Outrage Over Political Violence

0

by Chrisinia Laila, The Gateway Pundit:

Former President Bill Clinton crawled out of his hole on Saturday to condemn the Charlottesville violence.

Bill Clinton sent out a tweet condemning hatred, bigotry, violence and white supremacy. Far left Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs have been attacking Trump supporters for over a year and not a peep from Bill Clinton, so his selective outrage Saturday drew a lot of criticism. 

Why don’t any of these liberal politicians condemn and disavow Islamic terrorism, Blacks Lives Matter terrorists or Antifa terrorists? They don’t want to alienate their voting base. As soon as a white man shoots people, or white supremacists protest, the liberals crawl out of their holes with their hand wringing and virtue signaling.

A real leader condemns ALL violence no matter where it’s coming from.

Bill Clinton got savaged by Trump supporters on Twitter who pointed out that not only is he silent on violence towards conservatives, but he, along with Hillary are HUGE supporters of the late Dem Senator Robert Byrd who was an Exalted Cyclops in the KKK.

Hillary Clinton called Senator Byrd her friend and mentor. Bill Clinton excused Byrd’s KKK membership claiming, “he was just a country boy from the hills and hollers of West Virginia trying to get elected”. The Clinton’s get a pass because, Democrat.

‘CNN CAVED ON FIRST AMENDMENT’: PRO-TRUMP COMMENTATOR FIRED AFTER MOCKING MEDIA MATTERS ‘NAZIS’

0

by Adan Salazar, Infowars:

Jeffrey Lord’s sarcastic ‘Sieg Heil’ tweet taken out of context

CNN contributor Jeffrey Lord accused the network of “caving on the First Amendment” following its abrupt decision to fire him Thursday.

The “fake news” outlet terminated the pro-Trump commentator after he directed a sarcastic tweet at Media Matters writer Angelo Carusone, who had criticized an error in one of Lord’s headlines over at The American Spectator.

Lord jokingly replied to Carusone with the infamous Nazi salute, “Sieg Heil!” – which also appeared in his original article.

Lord’s original piece defended Fox News host Sean Hannity and called out the progressive Media Matters as “fascists” attempting to re-write the First Amendment and funded by billionaire liberal George Soros.

“The objective of Media Matters (and let’s stop with the camouflage and from now on call them what they really are, MMF — Media Matters Fascists), clearly, is to re-write the First Amendment so it will now be modeled after Fascist Italy’s Ministero della Cultura Popolare — Mussolini’s Ministry of Popular Culture,” Lord wrote, labeling the contents of a Media Matters piece “fascist propaganda.”

The Trump advocate proceeded to defend his tweet, saying he would not apologize for mocking “Nazis.”

Lord later told Entertainment Weekly that giving into authoritarian bullies is “unacceptable.”

“Caving to bullies, caving to people who use fascist and Nazi-style tactics to try and remove people from the air is unacceptable,” Lord said.

“I mocked this guy. Mocking Nazis is OK. That’s a good thing, not a bad thing. A writer has only a handful of tools in his writer’s box, and mockery is one of them. To suggest that this is anything other than that, to my way of thinking, is caving in. And I’m not going to cave.”

Panic Buying Grips America Ahead Of World War III: “Never Seen It At These Levels… We Can Barely Keep Up” Says Leading Preparedness Distributor

0

by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

As is often the case, most people wait until the last minute to prepare for the worst.

As reported by CBS Detroit, one Army Surplus store owner reports that preparedness equipment is flying off the shelves:

“We’ve been very busy. Unusually busy, I’d say,” Orr told WWJ’s Sandra McNeill. “It’s definitely an increase, just in selling all the normal prepper stuff, end of the world stuff. A lot of water prep stuff, food, MREs — the military meals.”

And there’s been a substantial increase in the sale of a particular item they don’t sell much of — a so-called radiation antidote called potassium iodide.

“It actually stops your thyroid from absorbing any radiation. So, it fills your thyroid with iodine, which it normally does anyways,” said Orr.

Another popular request: gas masks. But most people looking for those will be out of luck.

“Gas masks are a big thing too, but we only sell them as novelty,” said Orr.

Ed Thomas, a spokesperson for TopTierGearUSA.com, which distributes high-end protective equipment for Nuclear, Biological and Chemical emergencies, says that their web site has seen a 1200{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} spike in orders in the last week.

We’re barely keeping up with the inflow of orders and our staff is working double shifts just to get everything shipped. People are concerned with North Korea, World War III and what President Trump might do.

I’ve never seen it at these levels.

Everything… Anti radiation pills, gas masks, body suits and respiratory filters… people are trying to get their hands on these critical supplies in case this really happens.

Our biggest concern is that our manufacturers won’t be able to keep up with demand.

And it’s not just preparedness supplies. As Zero Hedge reports, bunker sales in California have skyrocket:

While a global nuclear confrontation is generally viewed as a bad thing, for Ron Hubbard, President of Atlas Survival Shelters in Los Angeles, it has resulted in an economic windfall.  Here’s more from The Sacramento Bee:

“It’s crazy, I’ve never seen anything like it,” Ron Hubbard, president of Atlas Survival Shelters, told Fox11. “It’s all over the country. I sold shelters today in North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, California.”

As we’ve reported previously, the situation has gotten so serious that the island nation of Guam, recently threatened for annihilation by North Korea, has issued a nuclear emergency guide warning residents to not look at the flash or fireball following a nuclear detonation.

President Trump announced Friday that the U.S. military is “locked and loaded,” ready to respond to North Korean aggression.

Horrifying Dash Cam Shows Cops Strip Woman Naked & Rape Her on the Roadside

0

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Disturbing images from dash cam footage shows cops strip a college student nude and publicly rape her on the roadside in search of a plant.

Houston, TX — On Friday, TFTP reported that the officers responsible for the public rape of an innocent woman on the side of the road would not be charged. After hearing the news, the attorney for Charnesia Corley announced that they had dash cam video of this sexual assault and they promised to release it.

“Once the community sees this video, they’re going to be outraged, disgusted with what they see and the District Attorney’s Office stuck themselves right in the middle of this case,” Sam Cammack, Corley’s attorney said. Cammack was correct — the video is horrifying and serves as a testament to the immoral and tyrannical devastation the war on drugs leaves in its path.

“A 21-year-old African-American, female, college student, had never had any criminal history never been in trouble,” said Cammack. However, these officers couldn’t have cared less about Corley’s innocence.

As TFTP reported at the time, Corley was on her way to the store to get medicine for her sick mother in June of 2015 when she was detained by police for allegedly running a stop sign. Within minutes, this routine traffic stop turned into a waking nightmare as cops publicly raped her in search of a plant.

The incident was so horrific that the cops involved in the public rape were actually charged with official oppression. However, like most cops who get charged with a crime, this month, those charges were dropped.

As ABC 13 reports, a Harris County grand jury cleared William Strong and Ronaldine Pierre of official oppression last week. It was the second time the case against them had been presented. The first time, under the previous DA administration, a grand jury indicted the officers and former Sheriff Ron Hickman was furious.

Last week, as ABC 13 notes, the District Attorney’s Office took the cases to a second grand jury, who dismissed the charges. Court documents note the reason as “grand jury action.”

“They were already indicted and set for trial under the old administration and the new administration no bills them, finds a grand jury that will no bill them and they claim it’s based on new evidence,” Cammack said.

However, that ‘new evidence’ is nothing more than medical records the state always had, according to Cammack.

Both of the rapist deputies have kept their jobs in spite of the now dropped charges. Since they publicly raped Corley on the side of the road 2015, they’ve been collecting their paychecks.

As TFTP reported at the time, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Department, Strong, the deputy who pulled Corley over asked her to step out of the vehicle after “smelling what he believed to be marijuana.”

“One of the officers on the tape, he was talking to a passenger who was already in custody in the officer’s car and you could hear him telling that individual ‘Oh we are going to find something, even if we have to put our hands on her’,” said Cammack.

“They then took Miss Corley and placed both ankles behind her ears spread eagle position and started to search for something in Miss Corley’s cavity in her vaginal area,” said Cammack.

The horrifying images show cops strip Corley nude on the side of the road and publicly rape her for over ten minutes — in search of a non-existent plant.

Because Corley didn’t immediately prostrate herself to be vaginally raped by a peace officer’s appendages in search of an illegal plant, the deputy charged her with resisting arrest.

Corley maintains that at no time did she ever consent to be raped by deputies.

“I felt like they sexually assaulted me. I really do. I felt disgusted, downgraded and humiliated,” Corley said.

According to Harris County Sheriff’s spokesperson, however, this stop was justified and the department did everything by the book. Also, the county prosecutor says nothing illegal happened either.

“No one in this office stands by the search the way it was conducted. No one condones that. No one thinks it’s appropriate. It should not have happened.

“However bad decisions, bad judgment may not rise the level of a criminal offense,”  Harris County prosecutor Natasha Sinclair.

When viewing the horrific images below, ask yourself what society would think about people — if they didn’t wear a uniform and a badge — who did this to a woman. Would anyone in their right mind claim that nothing criminal happened if the perpetrators weren’t cops?

Please share this article with your friends and family to help wake them up to this very real American Horror Story.
