A Perfect Storm is hitting the Gold market, with an internal factor (return to Quantitative Easing on steroids), an external factor (Shanghai Gold Exchange taking market share), and a systemic factor (Basel 3 Rule permitting Gold in account ratios). All three forces are positive in releasing Gold from the corrupt clutches of the Anglo-American banker organization. The Eastern Hemisphere has a planned coordinated and effective strategy to abandon the USDollar and to adopt the Gold Standard. It has happened first in the trade payment form, actually more like a global blossoming process. More progress can be inferred in its early stages. In the last ten years since the Lehman Brothers failure, all systems have undergone the same reckless treatment that the mortgage bonds endured. Slowly the realization is coming to the fore, stated by a few astute analysts. In the last decade, the US-UK bank management wing of the cabal has created the USTreasury Bond as the global subprime bond. This is the result of magnificent persistent QE abuse, hidden derivative activity to produce false bond demand, foreign dumping of USGovt debt securities, astonishing debt explosion, pilferage of foreign bond holdings, and wickedly false AAA debt rating.

International Man: For many years, President Trump has made no apologies for trying to pay the least amount of taxes possible. He’s clearly stated this in many interviews.
His desire to minimize his taxes has brought scorn from many in the mainstream media, and politicians from both sides of the aisle. These people are of the opinion that paying taxes is an honorable and necessary responsibility. It brings to mind the wrongheaded saying “taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society”, which came from US Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. Many people believe this.
But if that’s true, how come low tax locales like Singapore, the Cayman Islands, Monaco aren’t backward hell holes, but rather sophisticated and civilized? Full Story

Steve Forbes: Well, the Fed worships this theory called the Phillips curve, which posits that there's a trade-off between inflation and unemployment, that if you have high unemployment, you will have low inflation. Or if you have low unemployment, that means you have to accept high inflation. There have been at least seven Nobel-winning economists who say that's junk. You have the current reality. We don't have very much inflation, and we have very low unemployment rates. So how do they square that circle? The answer is, they don't. They blame the weather or something.
But it just goes to show that the Fed will hold on, like any agency will, to an obsolete theory, because they aren't subject to free market forces. The Phillips curve is nonsense, but the Fed believes that prosperity causes inflation. Full Story

All the pieces are falling into place for the biggest gold bullmarket in history and by the look of the long-term gold chart, it is set to start very soon. The biggest reason of course is the accelerating demise of fiat. There are many other reasons that we will be considering going forward, but the one that looks set to trigger the immediate start of the bullmarket (and has already since the move of the past 2 weeks is viewed as the initial impulse wave of this bullmarket, even though it hasn’t broken out yet) is the Fed chickening out of its “normalization” program, which was a joke anyway because there is no way they can normalize the hopeless mess they have created. . The markets called the Fed’s bluff and they very quickly folded, establishing that they are now powerless.

With the economy clearly fizzling away, the Fed has said it MIGHT cut rates if economic conditions warrant. What does that tell you about whether or not they will cut rates soon enough to avert a recession — something I think they have never managed to do, as they confess they are the culprits who cause recessions.
Recessions also usually start as soon as unemployment starts to rise. So, beware May’s surprisingly low new-jobs number. That can start the rise in unemployment if it proves to be more than a one-month blip. A decrease in the Fed’s target interest rate coupled with an uptick in unemployment is almost the perfect set of marks for the starting point of a recession. Full Story

One big difference between India and China is that the gold and silver buying in India is largely a grassroots phenomenon, emanating from the general population due to deep-rooted customs and traditions; where the buying from China is predominantly from official sources (similar to the gold buying by Russia). To me, this makes the gold and silver buying from India more “free market” and price-sensitive in nature because the more participants in any market, the freer the market is by definition. The many tens and even hundreds of millions of gold and silver buyers from India make the markets there the freest of all.
India has always played a vital role in gold and silver. I remember how my longtime friend and silver mentor, Izzy Friedman, more than 40 years ago, as he was deciding whether to make a major investment in silver in the mid-1970’s, actually flew to India to see for himself if the stories of great silver hoards about to flood the market should prices move higher (from $4 or $5) were true. Izzy saw plenty of silver, but none so closely held in large concentrated quantities to pose a market threat. I believe that’s still the case today. Full Story

Chinese President Xi Jinping was the guest of honor of Russian President Vladimir Putin. It was Xi’s eighth trip to Russia since 2013, when he announced the New Silk Roads, or Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
First they met in Moscow, signing multiple deals. The most important is a bombshell: a commitment to develop bilateral trade and cross-border payments using the ruble and the yuan, bypassing the U.S. dollar. Full Story

BLUE PILL REALITIES:
U.S. government debt: Congress, in their wisdom, will approve appropriations larger than revenues, borrow the deficit, and accept “donations” from interested parties. It’s all good… except the U.S. government is in debt over $22 trillion and has unfunded commitments for $100 – $200 trillion more. Their only plan for addressing massive debt is to increase borrowing and hope.
Even a few “blue pill” advocates understand this Ponzi scheme will end in tears. Full Story
