An intriguing paradox is evident, whereby the USDollar continues to rise despite the global economic recession. In fact, it can be argued that the USDollar is rising in the past several months, because of the global recession. On a worldwide basis, the economy is struggling badly, especially in the West. Worse still, without a doubt, the rising USDollar is destroying the individual economies of smaller nations, one by one. The King Dollar is truly an economic machete. Numerous factors are at work. All contribute toward the continued rise of the USDollar until the systemic breakdown hits both the economy and the financial system. The sign of systemic breakdown is the bond rally, which has taken bond yields into negative territory. Nobody with a working cerebrum can claim that $17 trillion in sovereign bonds sporting negative yields can defend the current system as either normal or stable. The Fed Valuation Model justifies higher stock index values when bond yields are lower, but the model has no modern feature for negative rates. Eventually, and soon, the only beneficiary will be Gold & Silver, along with a few hard assets like diamonds.

Like living in quiet desperation, holding on with our fingertips, scared we are losing our grip on the slippery mountain, on reality, on what little control we possessÖ central banks and governments are desperate.

Some are doing well, unless they worry the Jeffery Epstein fiasco will implicate them. But for many, itís desperation, insecurity and debts.

Central bankers, governments and stock markets are worried, even desperate.

Back during the bear market years (itís nice to be able to write that now), I regularly would compare the declines in Gold, Silver and gold stocks to their past history. It gave us a visual representation of just how bad the forever bear market was and helped us decipher when it might end.

Thankfully that is all behind us.

The editor of the Global Times, Hu Xijin, increasingly is cited in news reports around the world as a de-facto spokesman for the Chinese government. So his newspaper's publication of the Anbound commentary may be taken as more evidence that China sees gold as a primary vehicle of escaping domination by the U.S. dollar.

That may explain the unusual strength of the gold price in recent months, especially since many analysts long have maintained that China has not been fully reporting increases in its gold reserves.

The Anbound commentary in the Global Times is headlined "World Needs to Prepare for Return to Gold Standard as Washington Disrupts Financial Order" and it's posted here..

More crooked traders turning stateís evidence is certainly a good sign. However, at least two crooked banks have already cut deals with prosecutors Ė Deutsche Bank and, more recently, Bank of America.

These institutions wield enormous leverage in Washington, much like Jeffrey Epstein apparently did. Letís hope the banks do not all escape with the same sort of sweetheart non-prosecution agreements the pedophile received a decade ago.

Itís out of control. And Iím not even talking about the stock market, which fell off a cliff. Iím talking about the president who has deified himself. I hesitate to write strongly against Trump because I understand why many readers here voted for him, but today (Friday) is a day that shall live in insanity!

I understand that we need someone who is anti-establishment; but, at the risk of offending my own audience, enough is enough with this guy! Heís done nothing but serve the establishment. Heís flooded the White House with establishment leaders. Heís currently turning himself into the perfect scapegoat for the Federal Reserve. But now heís accepted a conspiracistís anointing as the Second Coming of the Chosen One! Iím not concerned that someone said this about him, but about how quickly and proudly Trump wore it!
