Paving The Way For The Ronascam

This article was originally published by Julie Beal at Activist Post. 

The work that had been done over the years on formulations, RNA modifications, and other techniques was paying off just in time for the current pandemic. mRNA vaccination was in exactly the right stage for things to take off with a good expectation of success.”

It helps to know how we got here, and the following timeline traces the creation of the DARPA-Big Pharma package of solutions for SARS-CoV-2 and illustrates just how ready they all were. Every outbreak furthered the development of genetic vaccines. Cases were counted according to tests, then compared to deaths “associated with” the virus in question.  Every outbreak featured a virus with a cleavage site, and they can all be stabilized with the NIH’s pre-fusion design, just like the rona.

The ronascam solutions were vastly enabled by, i) Baric, Shi, and Daszak making bat coronaviruses able to infect humans, and suggesting targets for vaccines, ii) Graham at the VRC developing vaccines, iii) Mclellan, Ward, and others from Dartmouth College and Scripps perfecting the pre-fusion technique, and iv) working closely with Moderna and Curevac to turn it all into mRNA. Plus, of course, a huge amount of money.

All they needed was a pandemic and nothing could have been better than SARS-CoV-2. It’s a virus with an unexplained furin cleavage site that appears to have been made in a lab. It spreads far and wide but without causing chaos. SARS-CoV-2 gets genetic vaccines in by the back door and it kick-starts the Reset. Presumably, we’re just lab rats until this phase is over because Gates and Schwab have promised us much worse is to come (apparently a cyber-attack), by which point things’ll be so chaotic, clinical trials will no longer be possible and vax-passports will be mandatory.

2000

  • Curevac is founded (mRNA potions).

2001

  • Methods for producing recombinant coronavirus – patent filed by Baric et al., at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The coronavirus particles “can be readily targeted to other mucosal surfaces mammalian species such as swine by simple replacements in the S glycoprotein gene, which has been shown to determine tissue and species tropism”, i.e. the particles can be made to infect certain body tissues (e.g. lungs), and even different species of animal, by altering the spike protein (e.g. mutating amino acid residues). The patent acknowledges the danger inherent in this kind of biological material by noting, “the possibility of RNA recombination between the replicon RNA and wild-type virus cannot be eliminated and remains an important issue requiring additional analysis.”
  • Operation Dark Winter – simulation of anthrax and smallpox attacks, followed by real anthrax attacks.

2002

  • SARS outbreak begins in China. SARS stands for ‘Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome’ and is said to be a new atypical pneumonia. The virus is said to have jumped from bats to civet cats, and then to humans.

2003

  • The WHO announces the end of the SARS outbreak (there were 8,098 cases and 744 deaths).
  • Baric works with researchers from the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, Fort Detrick, to make clones of SARS (Urbani strain). The clones are also infectious, which, they claim, “provides a template for manipulation of the viral genome, allowing for the rapid and rational development and testing of candidate vaccines and therapeutics…”
  • Since 2003, “there have been six documented SARS disease outbreaks originating from research laboratories, including four in China. These outbreaks caused 13 individual infections and one death.”

2004

2005

2006

2008

2009

  • The WHO changes the definition of a flu pandemic so that deaths and illness are no longer relevant then declares a swine flu pandemic which lasts until 2010 and is later found to be fake.
  • The VRC begins a Phase 1 trial of a DNA-based vaccine for swine flu, just two months after the WHO declares a pandemic. The vaccine was manufactured at the VRC/NIAID/Vaccine Pilot Plant using E. coli bacteria.
  • The NIH begins a phase 2 trial of a DNA-based HIV vaccine, called HVTN; (trial is halted in 2013).
  • The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) initiates a new global emerging pandemic threat program called PREDICT, and it’s based on EcoHealth Alliance’s ‘hotspots’ map.

2011

2012

  • Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) outbreak begins, and lasts until 2013, with around 2,566 cases and 822 deaths. The virus is said to have jumped from bats to camels, and then to humans.
  • Six miners working in the Mojiang mine in China contract a SARS-like illness and three of them die; researchers from WIV (the Wuhan Institute of Virology) go hunting for bat viruses in the Mojiang mine, “on four separate occasions between August 2012 and July 2013”.
  • The Global Vaccine Action Plan 2011-2020 is endorsed by the 194 Member States of the World Health Assembly, led by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, GAVI, UNICEF, WHO, and the NIH.
  • Flagship Ventures secures $40 million in funding for Moderna.
  • BioNTech starts a trial of an RNA-based cancer vaccine (ends in 2015, but details updated 18 January 2020).
  • Unlike many gene therapies, which could potentially be curative, in Moderna’s case, the patient will need to be dosed with the mRNA over and over again. Think ‘recurring revenue stream.’”

2013

  • Ebola outbreak – from December 2013 to January 2016, there were 28,616 cases and 11,310 deaths. The Ebola virus is said to have come from bats.

  • CureVac begins a Phase I trial for an mRNA-based rabies vaccine.
  • The NIH’s Vaccine Research Centre (VRC) has now tested DNA vaccines containing adenoviruses in 4,697 people and Barney Graham says there’s no need to do ‘aPTT testing’ on them anymore. “aPTT is used to test for coagulation and to detect potential issues with blood clotting due to the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies.” Graham also wants to stop doing heart tests such as ECGs during trials of a different viral vector called modified vaccinia Ankara (MVA).
  • Kariko joins BioNTech

2014

  • Team Wang develop MERS prefusion design.
  • June – 1 June, EcoHealth Alliance (Peter Daszak) receives the first round of funding for UNDERSTANDING THE RISK OF BAT CORONAVIRUS EMERGENCE (with $109.7m awarded so far).

ID2020’s founding partners include Microsoft, GAVI, and the Rockefeller Foundation. They aim to develop a model that provides businesses and governments with “accurate population data” and which could ultimately end up forcing people to use “a portable digital ID”. The ID could begin as an app, and then become a chip in the hand that’s paired with the app. In developing countries, it could be a digital tattoo to confirm vaccine submission.

alert California Cascadia subduction zone Conspiracy Fact and Theory Critical Thinking Destruction Earthquakes Emergency Preparedness experts Forecasting Gold Beach Intelwars Logic magnitude Mt. Hood oregon Prepare Ring of Fire Salton Sea san diego seismic activity the big one

The Shaking In California Is Getting WORSE As Hundreds And Hundreds Of Earthquakes Cause Alarm On The West Coast

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Ende of the American Dream.

Are we getting close to a major seismic event on the west coast?  Within the past several days, we have seen hundreds of earthquakes happen in southern California, there have been large earthquakes offshore near the Cascadia Subduction Zone, and there has been a very alarming swarm of earthquakes at Mt. Hood.  We haven’t seen this much seismic activity along the west coast in quite a long time, and many are concerned that this could be leading up to something really big.

At this moment, scientists are carefully monitoring the area around the Salton Sea.  According to the USGS, in one 24 hour period over the weekend more than 600 earthquakes of at least magnitude 1.0 shook that area of southern California…

More than 600 small earthquakes have been recorded this weekend in a rural area near the Salton Sea in Southern California, with the largest having a magnitude of 5.3, a US Geological Survey geophysicist told CNN.

Geophysicist Randy Baldwin said 603 temblors with a magnitude of at least 1 happened in the area from Saturday to just before sunrise Sunday.

The magnitude 5.3 quake was felt throughout the region.

In fact, it is being reported that it was even felt at an apartment building that was 95 miles away from the epicenter of the earthquake…

People in Chula Vista, San Diego, El Centro and Indio felt the 5.3 quake, according to the USGS, Did You Feel It reports. The tool collects information from people who report they’ve felt an earthquake and creates an interactive map.

Saturday morning’s shaking could be felt in an apartment building near Del Mar, California, approximately 95 miles away from the location of the earthquake.

When I wrote about the alarming rise of earthquake activity on the west coast a week ago, just over 1,000 earthquakes had occurred in California and Nevada over the previous seven days.

Now that number is up to 1,757, and it seems to be going up with each passing hour.

Elsewhere, a pair of magnitude 5.9 earthquakes were reported off the coast of Oregon on Friday

Elsewhere, two 5.9 magnitude earthquakes struck in the Pacific Ocean around 89 and 98 miles west of the coastal town of Gold Beach, Oregon, after 1 a.m. PT Friday, the USGS reported.

At least four earthquakes ranging in magnitudes from 3.9 to 5.9 occurred in that area in the previous few hours, according to USGS.

The entire west coast of the United States sits along the infamous “Ring of Fire”, and so there are always quakes in the region, but 5.9 is unusually large.

And the fact that these quakes were not too far from the Cascadia Subduction Zone is particularly alarming.

The day before, residents of San Jose were shaken by a magnitude 3.6 earthquake

3.6-magnitude earthquake shook San Jose on Thursday morning, the U.S. Geological Survey reports.

The 3.7-mile deep quake hit at 5:15 a.m. Pacific time, according to the USGS. Dozens of people from as far away as Oakland and San Rafael reported feeling the tremor to the agency.

“Well, that’s one way to wake up!” read one Twitter post. “Earthquake in San Jose. Anyone else can’t go back to sleep?”

And just a few days before that, Disneyland was rattled by a very unusual swarm of earthquakes

A swarm of earthquakes struck the Disneyland area this morning, including one which left a southern California visitor wondering if he was still on a theme park ride. While relatively light, the 2.7 magnitude earthquake which struck at 12:41 am this morning, was felt by more than 300 people that reported it to the USGS using their “Did you feel it?” online survey tool. The quake hit at a depth of 2.7 miles and was followed by 9 aftershocks, most of which struck within 4 miles of the Disneyland complex.

Have you ever watched a disaster movie in which several smaller seismic events precede the big monster event at the end of the movie?

Just because so many unusual seismic events are happening in California right now does not necessarily mean that something bigger is on the way, but without a doubt now is a time to be on an increased state of alert.

To me, one of the most disturbing developments of the past week was the large earthquake swarm that occurred right at Mt. Hood on Saturday

The earthquake rumbled at 8:51 p.m. June 5, just south of the summit of Mount Hood. It was preceded by several earthquakes in the hour before the quake, and tens of aftershocks have occurred since, the Cascades Volcano Observatory of the U.S. Geological Survey reported in a news release Saturday night.

Since the eruption of Mt. St. Helens in 1980, there hasn’t been a major volcanic eruption in the United States.

We should be thankful for that, but eventually all of the volcanoes on the west coast are going to go off.

It is just a matter of time.

But for those living in southern California, a historic earthquake is the larger threat.  Scientists assure us that “the Big One” is way overdue, and when it finally arrives many believe that it will permanently alter the geography of the California coastline.

Despite all of our advanced technology, there is nothing that we can do to stop “the Big One” from coming, and experts acknowledge that the death and destruction that we will witness during such an event could be off the charts.

It has often been said that “as California goes, so goes the nation”.

Today, that saying appears to be more true than ever.

But the state of California is also living on borrowed time because a historic disaster of epic proportions could literally hit the state at any moment.

ask questions Biontech Conspiracy Fact and Theory covid Critical Thinking discernment experimental gene therapy experts fact checkers Forecasting genetic modification Headline News Intelwars invalidate liars magnets Mainstream media Metal Moderna mRNA official narrative Pfizer propaganda propagandists Shots Technology wake up

MSM Is Working Around The Clock To Invalidate “Magnet Challenge”

The mainstream media is doing its best to invalidate claims that magnets are sticking to injection sites where people have gotten the experimental gene therapy jab. Several videos have surfaced of people showing a magnet sticks to their arm, and the MSM is “fact-checking” them all.

Remember the journalist who attempted to convince people that the COVID jabs were not gene therapy simply because he said so? Well, he’s back at it chastizing those who posted videos of a magnet sticking to their injection site.

This has included photos and videos posted on social media. For example, a video posted on Instagram and Twitter showed a woman saying, “Here’s the magnet. This is the arm I got the Pfizer shot in,” while placing what looked like a magnet on her left arm, according to Angelo Fichera writing for the website FactCheck.org. She then said, “You go figure it out. We’re chipped. We’re all bleeped,” except she didn’t say “bleeped” but rather a word that began with “f” and wasn’t “fondued.” –Forbes

 So why should you be unconcerned? Because the “vaccine” has to have a “significant amount of metal” in it to make a magnet stick.  That’s comforting…

Before you begin believing that the Covid-19 vaccine will somehow make your arm more susceptible to a Magneto attack, keep in mind several things. First of all, the Covid-19 vaccines would have to have a fair amount of metal in them to make magnets stick to you like they would to a refrigerator door. A Covid-19 vaccine dose is less than a milliliter (mL), with a typical dose for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine being only about 0.3 mL. That’s not enough volume to squeeze in a typical microchip. Even if the entire injected volume were filled with a ferromagnetic metal, it probably wouldn’t be nearly enough to make your arm into a refrigerator door. –Forbes

Or is that enough volume for a “typical microchip?” Read it for yourself here.  It looks like mainstream media is still being the lapdog for the controllers and trying their best to get people to stop asking questions.

Does that mean a microchip is in this shot? No, of course not. It could be something else, though.

Does Magnetic Hydrogel Explain The COVID Vax Magnet Phenomenon?

No one really knows what’s in these shots because we are being lied to about it. Just using the simple process of discernment, most feel there is dishonesty in what is in these shots.  And that is a valid concern considering it is more than obvious we are being lied to based on the fact that they still want us to believe is a “vaccine” in spite of the fact that they admit it contains messenger RNA, which makes it a gene therapy.

“Vaccine” Side Effect: COVID Arm

Does anyone actually trust that Pfizer and Moderna are telling the truth about what’s in these shots?

Even the United States government and Google admit Pfizer is a “habitual offender,” persistently engaging in illegal and corrupt marketing practices, bribing physicians, and suppressing adverse trial results. But yeah, we are the crazy ones for daring to ask questions about what the hell is going on. Apparently, we shouldn’t assume a “habitual offender” would lie to use about the ingredients of a shot in order to try to convince us to take it.

COVID-19 mRNA Shots Are Legally Not Vaccines

But the mainstream media and ruling class want to discourage us all from even asking questions about the experiences others who have taken this jab have had, and that’s the real problem.  The rulers continue to demand we shut up and comply after turning off our critical thinking and ability to pose important questions.

The best advice moving forward is to never stop questioning these psychopaths who demand you believe them because “they say so.” Make sure you look at things from your perspective too. Don’t just believe that this shot is experimental gene therapy. Read about it. Understand what mRNA actually is. Understand how the mRNA works in the body.

Knowledge is power and asking questions about these narratives we are being spoon-fed as if we are children is not going to hurt anything except the official narrative and the propaganda peddlers credibility, which is why they try so hard to silence those who question the ruling class.

Vaccine Virtue Signaling And The Cult Of Woke

This article was originally published by Brandon Smith at Alt Market.us. 

All tyrannical systems need a large contingent of cheerleaders in order to survive and thrive; a group of exploitable and devout acolytes that will carry the torch and evangelize the masses with the ideology of control. Without this aggressive percentage of the population, totalitarians cannot remain in power. In the US and most of the west, leftist ideologues have filled this role nicely. They claim they are fighting for the rights of the downtrodden but their actions speak much louder than their words.

They have supported and viciously defended nearly every draconian measure that governments and corporate elites have enacted in the past few years. They supported mass censorship of conservatives and moderates by Big Tech companies. They supported national lockdowns which destroyed hundreds of thousands of small businesses and violated the constitutional rights of millions of Americans. They continue to support unscientific mask rules which have been proven to achieve nothing tangible in terms of preventing viral spread. They support the use of “vaccine passports” which would effectively cut non-vaccinated people out of the normal economy and normal society and drive them into poverty. And, now they are all over the web trying to propagandize for the jab.

We know these unhinged creatures by many names, including social justice warriors, snowflakes, puritans, leftists, Marxists, communists, globalists, collectivists, narcissists, etc. Basically, they are some of the worst people on the planet, and while they usually drone on about “institutional racism” that doesn’t exist, or a rape culture that doesn’t exist, or a patriarchy that doesn’t exist (though I’m starting to wonder if maybe we should start one), they have now found a new love in the covid “crisis”.

But before I address the Woke Cult and their perverse relationship with the establishment, I have to ask a basic question about the “vaccine” which no one in the mainstream seems to be asking:

Why should we take an experimental mRNA vaccine for a virus that 99.7% of people outside of nursing homes will easily survive?

This question alone usually explodes the heads of vaccine cultists. Most of them for some reason still believe the death rate of covid is “3% or more”. Why do they peddle this nonsense? Well, I would note that the mainstream media NEVER discusses the death rate of covid; they instead let people make assumptions based on things they have heard in the past from entities like the World Health Organization or the CDC.

The 3% stat appears to have come from PREDICTIONS made by the WHO in January of 2020 before the virus had fully hit the US, as well as a preliminary study by Lancet. These predictions were pushed forward by the Imperial College of London, a globalist institution that created the complex mandate and lockdown models that nations across the world are now using to control the public. Their models were so utterly wrong that it is bewildering to anyone familiar with statistical theory or medical management.

As it turns out, the death rate for covid is a mere 0.26% of those infected (it was never 3%) and we have known this for quite some time. Nursing home patients with preexisting conditions make up around 40% of all deaths. Over 80% of all deaths were people over the age of 65. And, according to the CDC, at least 30% of all covid hospitalizations were due to complications associated with severe obesity.

So, if you are not over 65 and you are not a disgusting fat body, then you have very little to worry about from covid statistically. If you are over 65 and you are fat, then you have around a 0.26% chance of dying if you become infected. If you are over 65, fat, and live in a nursing home, then maybe you should be worried.

The bottom line is, covid is a non-threat to the vast majority of people, but there is a large group of obsessives out there that seem to want to be afraid of it anyway, or, they just want us to be afraid.

The virtue-signaling around the vaccines is growing increasingly bizarre. There are numerous YouTube videos, TikTok videos, articles, and social media posts by people smugly proclaiming their jab status as if they have just been touched by the hand of God as the chosen ones. Furthermore, the idolization of medical frauds like Dr. Anthony Fauci is cringeworthy. If you don’t believe me you can see some examples below:

It appears that the SJWs are trying real hard to normalize covid vaccines by manufacturing a consensus. If everyone is doing it, then you might get left out and isolated from the crowd, and that’s a scary thought, right?

Maybe I’m reading too much into this, but I’m detecting some serious desperation behind this astroturf movement against “anti-vaxxers”. No one listens to the cult of woke, no one likes them and no one trusts them to be informed or honest in their agenda. Yet, they wield considerable power in our society because they are being backed by governments and corporations. Their relationship to the establishment is symbiotic.

This is not to say any of these people are aware of the underlying agenda. The mindset behind vaccine virtue signaling could be attributed to some base frailties the average leftist suffers from:

First, they have a habit of relying on the government and the system, in general, to provide for their feelings of normalcy. That is to say, they worship the covid vaccine partly because they see it as their ticket to appeasing the government and being given access to certain comforts. Sadly, they don’t realize that those comforts can be taken back anytime they want if they were not so cowardly.

In my county residents here have been ignoring the covid mandates for most of the past year. No one wears the masks. No one is using social distancing. And over 70% of the population is not vaccinated. The consequence? Only 17 deaths in the past year, most of which were people with preexisting conditions, and we have been free the whole damn time because we chose to be.

Second, leftists always argue from a position of “the majority”, even when they are not the majority. Covid is a tool, like a psychological crowbar used to leverage compliance, because the presumption is that it is a threat to everyone. And, if everyone is threatened by the same bogeyman, then everyone is part of the same monolith, the same collective. And if everyone is part of the same collective, then everyone must fight that bogeyman together in unity. If you do not work with the collective, that means you are working against the collective.

“We live in a society”, the leftists arrogantly spit and sneer, “which means you must do what WE say is best for everyone”.

As I already thoroughly outlined above, covid is not a threat to everyone. It’s not even a threat to more than 0.26% of people. We do NOT “live in a society”, at least, we don’t live in their society or under their rules. They don’t care about saving lives, this is just the excuse they need to exert control. Control is what they most desire.

How do I know this? Look at the mania surrounding the very existence of anti-lockdown activists and “anti-vaxxers”. Look at how much they talk about us. They can’t stop themselves. Why do these people care so much whether or not we take the vaccine? If it actually works, then they are perfectly safe from us, and when we all die horrible deaths from covid they can say “we told you so”.

What they really fear is that we are right and they are wrong. The science is certainly on our side and has been for the duration of the pandemic. The WHO was wrong, the CDC was wrong, the Imperial College of London was wrong. The anti-lockdown activists were closer to the mark than all of them combined. The masks have been proven to be uselessThe lockdowns have been proven to be useless. The death rate predictions were proven to be highly exaggerated. And, now the very need for the vaccines is in question.

In terms of the recent mainstream media narrative, we can draw a couple of conclusions: For one, the vaccine rollout is not going according to plan. Every day the media is awash in stories about “vaccine hesitancy” and what the government needs to do about it. This tells me that far too many Americans are refusing the shot, so, the propaganda is being turned up to eleven.

I suspect the vaccine virtue signaling is a part of that campaign, or it is at least being encouraged by the establishment. Don’t you want to be on the right side of history? Don’t you want to be on the “side that cares about people”? Or do you want to be on the “selfish side”, the side that wants to kill grandma, the side that is racist and sexist and nasty and icky?

Another easy conclusion we can draw from the media is that this is not going away and the establishment intends to press the issue if we continue to defy them. I have seen the suggestion of “force” only gingerly broached in the past, but recently the narrative is becoming more aggressive. The word “force” is appearing more often. The media seeks to remind us that under that law, the establishment could make us take the vaccine. The message? We might as well get the vaccine now so that we can avoid any unpleasantness later.

We all know this is eventually going to end in war, but the elites need a huge ratio of pro-mandate people to effectively subjugate liberty-minded individuals. They don’t have it and it shows.

Woke adherents see all of this same propaganda every day; they hear the message loud and clear: The system is indicating that the vaccines will be mandatory whether by government declaration or by corporate requirement. So, leftists are scrambling to show their allegiance to their god (the state), and they act as good little foot-soldiers to gain extra virtue points.

There are many reasons not to accept an experimental vaccine, some of them scientific and some of them based on principle. I would simply point out that many virologists have spoken out on the safety of these vaccines including a former VP of Pfizer, Dr. Michael Yeadon, who along with his peers concluded that NO ONE should take the mRNA vaccines until further testing is done, otherwise there is considerable danger of long term health effects including autoimmune disorders and infertility.

The mRNA gene therapy push is at its core a giant experimental trial using the masses as unwitting test subjects. We really have no idea what the consequences will ultimately be, but I have a feeling that within a couple of years we will see the results and it will not be pretty. There is a reason why governments are making it legally impossible to sue vaccine producers for vaccine side effects.

Beyond the many health concerns, there is the problem of incrementalism. One vaccination alone might not be a big threat. Maybe it’s a gamble that doesn’t end in snake eyes for most people. But what about the next one? And the next one? What about the next 20 jabs? There are now half a dozen different mutations of covid being mentioned by the government and the media as being potentially resistant to current vaccines and more dangerous than the first iteration of the virus.

This is surely a lie, but it drives home the reality that the mandates are meant to go on forever. If we accept them now, they will never end. Just because you are vaccinated today does not mean you will be free tomorrow.

And, with each new vaccine there arises the specter of vaccine passports. And with vaccine passports there arises the specter of complete government micro-management of people’s lives. Sure, you can choose to not get vaccinated, but the system is going to make certain you suffer for it until you can’t survive without the jab. The vaccine is a stepping stone to tyranny disguised as empathy and duty to your community.

The woke cult adores this kind of environment, however. This is the type of dark slimy cave they like to nest in. The need to control others is an aberration, a mental deficiency common to psychopaths, but in the new world, the control freaks are given justification and free rein. The striking irony here is that these people like to control, but they also like to BE controlled. They find comfort and safety in their chains. The world is a scary place, and being independent within it takes courage, mental fortitude, and a willingness to learn from our mistakes so that we gain wisdom and experience in the process.

The platitudes and pontificating of the leftist mob are an attempt to avoid the tribulations of real life; their submission to the state no matter how dubious or evil is an attempt to feel safe from their own irrational fears, their weaknesses, and their inadequacies. As the author Robert Anton Wilson once said:

The obedient always think of themselves as virtuous rather than cowardly.”

US Declares State Of Emergency To Keep Gasoline Flowing After Colonial Fails To Restart Hacked Pipeline

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

Update 9:00 pm ET:  The US government declared a state of emergency late on Sunday, lifting limits on the transport of fuels by road in a bid to keep gas supply lines open as fears of shortages spiked after the continued shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline.

“This Declaration addresses the emergency conditions creating a need for immediate transportation of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and other refined petroleum products and provides necessary relief,” the Department of Transportation said. White House Press Sec Jen Psaki added that “as the Administration works to mitigate potential disruptions to supply as a result of the Colonial Pipeline incident, @USDOT is taking action today to allow flexibility for truckers in 17 states.”

The move lifted limits on the transport of fuels by road to ease the fallout from the continuing closure of the Colonial pipeline, which carries almost half the fuel consumed on the US East Coast, following a ransomware cyberattack on Friday.

The decision comes as the government scrambles to deal with the fallout from the closure of Colonial, the biggest refined products pipeline in the US, transporting 2.5m barrels of fuel a day from refineries on the Gulf Coast to markets such as Atlanta, Washington, and New York (see more below).

If the pipeline is not quickly reopened the impact on prices could become more severe in the coming days, said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at data provider GasBuddy. “We’re realizing the gravity of it is maybe worse than what we’d expected,” said De Haan. “There’s still a little breathing room, we’re starting to run low on it. But Monday, Tuesday if there’s no news, you know we’re dealing with something fairly significant.”

* * *

Just in case the US didn’t already have a “transitory hyperinflation” problem, gasoline futures soared more than 4% – and are likely to jump much more – late on Sunday after the Colonial Pipeline announced that while some smaller lateral lines between terminals and delivery points are now operational, its mainlines (Lines 1, 2, 3 and 4) remain offline since late Friday after the company suffered a crippling cyberattack that affected its key IT systems.

Colonial operates Line 1 for gasoline and Line 2 for diesel and jet fuel from Pasadena, Texas, some 15 miles from the nation’s largest refineries, to Greensboro, North Carolina, at a combined 2.5 million barrels a day. They merge at Greensboro to feed a line carrying about 900,000 barrels a day into New York Harbor, and other East Coast pipelines.

Colonial said that it is “in the process of restoring service to other laterals and will bring our full system back online only when we believe it is safe to do so, and in full compliance with the approval of all federal regulations.” Full statement below:

Update — Sunday, May 9, 5:10 p.m.

On May 7, Colonial Pipeline Company learned it was the victim of a cybersecurity attack and has since determined that the incident involved ransomware. Quickly after learning of the attack, Colonial proactively took certain systems offline to contain the threat. These actions temporarily halted all pipeline operations and affected some of our IT systems, which we are actively in the process of restoring.

Leading, third-party cybersecurity experts were also immediately engaged after discovering the issue and launched an investigation into the nature and scope of this incident. We have remained in contact with law enforcement and other federal agencies, including the Department of Energy who is leading the Federal Government response.

Maintaining the operational security of our pipeline, in addition to safely bringing our systems back online, remain our highest priorities. Over the past 48 hours, Colonial Pipeline personnel have taken additional precautionary measures to help further monitor and protect the safety and security of its pipeline.

The Colonial Pipeline operations team is developing a system restart plan. While our mainlines (Lines 1, 2, 3 and 4) remain offline, some smaller lateral lines between terminals and delivery points are now operational. We are in the process of restoring service to other laterals and will bring our full system back online only when we believe it is safe to do so, and in full compliance with the approval of all federal regulations.

At this time, our primary focus continues to be the safe and efficient restoration of service to our pipeline system, while minimizing disruption to our customers and all those who rely on Colonial Pipeline. We appreciate the patience and outpouring of support we have received from others throughout the industry.

Meanwhile, downstream customers, which includes pretty much the entire Eastern seaboard, are starting to freak out as they face a new week without the primary source of gasoline supply for hundreds of millions of customers.

In response to the news, gasoline futures jumped 4% to $2.21 a gallon, approaching the highest since 2014. WTI and Brent both spiked more than 1%, while other products such as diesel and jet fuel are also likely to jump.

Should Colonial be unable to bring its main pipeline back online, which as a reminder were hacked by a ransomware group called DarkSide, according to Allan Liska, senior threat analyst at cybersecurity firm Recorded Future, there is no telling how high prices will shoot up as Colonial supplies nearly half the east coast gasoline.

On Friday, the national average stood at $2.96 a gallon Friday, according to auto club AAA, and with national gasoline inventories ample, the pump price wasn’t expected to tick much higher until Memorial Day at the end of May, which is traditionally viewed as the start of the U.S. summer driving season. However, it now appears that we can add gas to the list of items that have seen prices soar. Gasoline last bested the $3 average in October 2014.

Price increases in road fuel may stoke even more worries about inflation as commodities from oil to lumber to corn skyrocket with the world’s major economies emerging from pandemic restrictions. The oil industry was gearing up to meet what is expected to be a surge in fuel demand as newly vaccinated Americans take to the roadways and skies this summer. The downed Colonial Pipeline is a key artery for gasoline, diesel and jet fuel produced by oil refiners on the U.S. Gulf Coast and major metropolitan areas between Atlanta and New York.

“It all comes down to the duration of the disruption. If it lasts longer, it’s likely to result in some location dislocations — shortage of oil products in the East Coast, abundance in the Gulf region. That will support New York product prices and might attract more oil products from abroad,” said Giovanni Staunovo, commodity analyst at UBS Group AG.

One bank that is optimistic on the outcome of the shutdown is Goldman, its commodities strategist Damien Courvalin writing on Sunday that “the Colonial pipeline disruption likely to be brief” while “falling inventories will exacerbate the impact of future potential outages.” Some more details from the note:

With no physical damage to the pipeline, sufficient PADD1 inventories and above seasonal gasoline imports into the region, only a long outage (likely more than 5 days) would materially tighten local supplies. The Southeast region is most at risk of shortages given tighter inventories in the PADD 1C region.

As prior Colonial outages have shown, like in 2016, resupply is further likely to be rapid:

  1. the Colonial pipeline was running below capacity so a resumption of flows at capacity would accelerate the restocking,
  2. Kinder Morgan is working to accommodate additional barrels on its PPL line,
  3. vessels from the USGC and EU can arrive in 7 to 14 days, while
  4. the US administration could waive the Jones Act shipping restriction as well as summer gasoline requirements.

As a result, while NY Harbor petroleum product June cracks and June-July timespreads are set to rally on Sunday’s open/Monday should the pipeline not have been restarted by then, such moves are likely to be short-lived and mean reverting, with the June RBOB contract expiring on May 28.

Not everyone is so sure, and Bloomberg reports that traders are already seeking vessels to deliver gasoline that would have otherwise been shipped on the Colonial system. Some tankers are being secured to temporarily store gasoline in the U.S. Gulf in the event of a prolonged shutdown, they said.

There is some good news: the terminus of the pipeline, New York, was well stocked with fuel ahead of the attack and could weather the upset if missing fuel is replaced or the line restarts quickly. East Coast gasoline stockpiles at the end of April were near five-year seasonal averages. Of course, a lenghty shutdown would mean gasoline shortage the likes of which were last seen in the 1970s…

… which would be poetic justice since price are already soaring at a pace that has surpassed America’s hyperinflationary period, which ended with the Volcker Fed hiking rates to 20% in 1980.

Biden administration Crimea Death Donbass experts fighting Forecasting Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden kiev MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX Murder NATO nuclear attack Russia Ukraine United States Vladimir Putin Volodymyr zelensky War WHITE HOUSE WW3 WWIII

Heavy Shelling Is Being Reported In Ukraine As Russian Television Discusses A Possible “Nuclear Strike”

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

A new war in Ukraine would be bad for the entire globe, but we might just get one anyway.  Once the Biden administration took control of the White House, they decided to wage a campaign of maximum pressure against Russia, and Ukraine is one of the key tools that they are using.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky never would have signed Decree No. 117/2021 on March 24th without the encouragement of the Biden administration, and the extremely aggressive statements about Crimea in that document deeply alarmed the Russians.  Even more importantly, it appears that the Ukrainians were secretly preparing a massive offensive against areas of eastern Ukraine that are held by the separatists.  If those areas could have been captured before Russia could react, that would have been a massive victory for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and the Biden administration.  But the Russians caught wind of what was going on, and that is why they have been sending forces into Crimea and into separatist-held areas of eastern Ukraine in numbers that we have never seen before.

If Zelensky and the Biden administration would have left things alone, we wouldn’t be on the verge of war today.

But now tensions in the region are extremely high, and a major conflict could break out at any moment.  The following is an example of how the current state of affairs is being viewed in Russia

After six years of an uneasy and at times violent truce, the specter of a new war is looming large in Russia-Ukraine relations. In retaliation for Kiev’s recent crackdown on pro-Russian media and politicians, Moscow is staging a large-scale and ostentatious military buildup along the Ukrainian border.

The situation is especially volatile in Donbass, where the ceasefire between the Ukrainian army and Moscow-sponsored breakaway territories has effectively broken down. Both sides accuse each other of provocations and regularly exchange fire, with the casualties mounting among both military personnel and civilians.

Zelensky made things even worse on Tuesday when he urged NATO to add Ukraine as a member as soon as possible

Ukraine’s president has called on Nato and key member states to hasten his country’s membership of the western military alliance in response to a growing buildup of Russian forces on his country’s borders.

Volodymyr Zelenskiy spoke to Nato’s secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg, on Tuesday, and urged for Ukraine to be put on a pathway to future membership to halt the long-running conflict in the eastern Donbas region.

Everyone knows that Russia is desperate to keep Ukraine out of NATO, and so Zelensky had to know that his statements would result in even more stress in the region.

The Ukrainian people thought that they were voting for peace when they originally voted for Zelensky, but instead, he has been a nightmare.

Within the last 24 hours, more shelling has erupted in eastern Ukraine.  According to the Ukrainian military, mortar fire was reported close to the village of Nevelske…

In particular, in the area of ??responsibility of the operational and tactical group “East”, near the village of NEVELSKE, the enemy opened fire with 82-mm mortars, large-caliber machine guns and machine-gun anti-tank grenade launchers.

As a result of enemy shelling, one Ukrainian soldier received non-life-threatening injuries. In addition, in the area of ??the Joint Forces operation, one serviceman died as a result of an explosion on an unknown explosive device.

Even more alarming, video footage posted on social media shows “heavy shelling” near the city of Avdiivka…

Unfortunately, the fighting is likely to escalate in the coming days.

In fact, it is being reported that Ukraine is starting to call up reservists

Ukraine’s military has scrambled territorial defense units amid the unfolding threat of an all-out Russian invasion as masses of fresh regular forces concentrate near Ukraine’s borders, with NATO and United States ringing alarm.

Approximately 100,000 reservists could be called to duty, and that would definitely bolster the Ukrainian forces.

On the other side, the Russian military just announced that it will be holding more than 4,000 “training exercises” during the month of April…

Russia announced the start of mass military drills, ratcheting up tensions with neighboring Ukraine amid Western concerns about the risk of renewed fighting.

More than 4,000 training exercises will be held in military districts across Russia in April, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Tuesday, in comments posted on the ministry’s website.

Hopefully things will calm down soon, because events could spiral out of control very easily.

Earlier today, I was deeply alarmed to learn that there has even been a discussion about a potential “nuclear strike” on Russian public television

However, in a frightening public report, Russian public television “Russia 1” spoke of a nuclear strike. They said about:

“If there is a possible escalation in Ukraine, then a nuclear strike is on the agenda. This will make Americans afraid and we will do whatever we want.”

Hearing that should send a chill through your bones because if nuclear weapons are used that will cross a line that will never be able to be uncrossed.

We are so close to a nightmare scenario, but most Americans continue to be completely and utterly oblivious to what is going on.

A hothead is in charge of our foreign policy, he is surrounded by a team of all-star warmongers, and we are now closer to war with Russia than we have been in decades.

And at this hour, even more, forces are racing toward the conflict zone in Ukraine…

So This Is How The U.S. Dollar Dies…

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is all about the Great Reset agenda.  People must be dependent on the government for their very survival so they can force everyone onto a fully centralized and tracked and traced digital dollar that they control. In exchange for your slavery, you’ll get a pittance – as long as you continue to obey the masters.

Our leaders are killing the U.S. dollar, and it is being done to thunderous applause.

The House and the Senate have now both passed the 1.9 trillion dollar “COVID relief bill”, and it will go to Joe Biden’s desk for his signature.  Of course, we don’t actually have 1.9 trillion dollars to spend on yet another “COVID relief” package.  In fact, we don’t even have one dollar to spend on another “COVID relief” package.  Every single dollar that is spent will have to be borrowed, and that will soon push our national debt beyond the 30 trillion dollar mark.  Sadly, our politicians seem convinced that giant mountains of dollars can be printed, borrowed, and spent indefinitely without any repercussions, and most Americans fully support what they are doing.  In fact, one recent poll found that a whopping 78 percent of all Americans support more stimulus checks…

A huge majority of Americans, including nearly two-thirds of Republicans, support the $1,400 stimulus checks President Biden is calling for, and his full $1.9 trillion stimulus proposal also has strong public backing, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

The poll found that 78 percent of Americans supported the stimulus checks, including 90 percent of Democrats and 64 percent of Republicans — suggesting that Republicans in Congress who want to reduce the checks to $1,000 are out of step with their constituents on this issue.

If you are in that 78 percent, you are wrong.

Yes, it is nice to get a big, fat government check in the mail.  But in the process, we are rapidly destroying our currency, and what we are doing to future generations of Americans is beyond criminal.

Previous COVID relief bills have had wide bipartisan support, but this one passed almost entirely along party lines

The final vote Saturday in the Senate was 50-49 with all Republicans voting against the measure and all members of the Senate Democratic caucus supporting it. Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, was not present for the vote. In the House, it didn’t earn a single Republican vote in the two times the bill came to a vote.

Biden ran on his ability to broker bipartisan efforts on Capitol Hill, drawing on his 36 years in the Senate and eight years as vice president. Republicans have viewed the bill as a betrayal of the bipartisanship Biden embraced and spoke of during his campaign.

This is being called a “big win” for Biden, and when Pelosi announced that the bill had passed the House she did a little “shimmy“…

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the 220-211 vote result from the chair, prompting the bill’s supporters to burst into applause. Just a single Democrat voted against it.

Her glee at the outcome was evident even though she had a mask on. She executed what her daughter Christine called a ‘shimmy’ as she gaveled down the vote in a chamber where a five-vote majority gave her very little wiggle room.

After the vote was over, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy referred to the COVID relief package as “socialism”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., described it as a “laundry list of leftwing priorities” that “do not meet the needs of American families.”

“It is very liberal,” he said. “They called this the most progressive piece of legislation in history. For those who are watching, progressive means socialism.”

He is right, but I just wish that he would have figured that out several COVID relief packages ago.

Because the truth is that what we have already done to our currency is absolutely nightmarish.  The following is the latest M1 chart from the Federal Reserve…

Thanks to our wild-spending politicians and unprecedented intervention in the financial markets by the Federal Reserve, we have now entered an era of hyperinflation.

It took from the founding of the United States to 2020 for M1 to get to 4 trillion dollars.

And then it took about one year for M1 to go from 4 trillion dollars to 18 trillion dollars.

This is utter madness.

Of course, the chart above doesn’t even reflect the impact that this new COVID relief package will have.  Another 1.9 trillion dollars is about to be poured into the system, and that will make things even worse.

Needless to say, most Wall Street investors are absolutely thrilled that another tsunami of money is coming.  One recent poll found that “37% of Main Street investors” plan to pour stimulus money directly into the Wall Street casino…

A recent Deutsche Bank survey found that 37% of Main Street investors, some of who could be members of the Reddit community, will plow a “large chunk” of stimulus money, about $170 billion, “directly into equities.”

These small but mighty investors have gained notoriety in recent months, creating volatility and heavy volume in a number of heavily shorted stocks, such as GameStop Corp., AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. and Bed Bath & Beyond Inc.

That should be very good news for stocks, but of course a major “trigger event” could crash the market at any time.

So we will have to wait and see how all of this plays out.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden just announced that he will unveil “the next phase” of his administration’s response to the pandemic on Thursday

Just hours after the House passed the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion stimulus package (which will unleash another wave of “stimmies” that will inevitably find their way into millions of Robinhood and other discount brokerage accounts), President Joe Biden said Wednesday that he would unveil “the next phase” of the US COVID-19 response on Thursday, which is also the one-year anniversary of the first COVID-inspired lockdowns in the US.

Even if more stimulus checks are not involved, any new programs that Biden announces will cost money, and that involves more borrowing.

We are printing, borrowing, and spending our way into oblivion, and we have nobody but ourselves to blame.

As I was preparing to write this article, I just kept thinking of the scene from one of the Star Wars movies where Emperor Palpatine announces that the Republic will be reorganized as “the first Galactic Empire”, and the Senate erupts in applause.

Our Republic is dying too, and our politicians are gleefully murdering the reserve currency of the entire planet.

This is not going to end well, but you already knew that.

MY NEXT MOVES: TECHMAGEDDON/GOLD HORRORS!

By now, it’s clear that the world is aware of the changing dynamics in growth prospects for the global economy. After twelve years (2009-2021), where the world’s largest economy was growing very slowly, the millennials and Gen Z demographics are now generating organic growth in the economy. Lowering rates artificially isn’t needed anymore to overcome the demographics cliff.

These age groups, now comprising over one-third of the country’s inhabitants, are searching for better jobs, newer homes, a wife/husband, having children, and moving into adulthood.

They’re going to be responsible for generating higher income tax receipts, servicing the interest payments on the national debt, creating real jobs and incorporating new businesses, and shaping the future of America.

TECH WRECK: THE TRUTH

  1. Dominance: Despite calls for the end of the tech sector, as the leading one, before all others, we don’t think that big tech is going to struggle or languish.

We do think emerging tech (the hype bubble that was rampant and prevalent for years) is over!

Investors are waking up to the fact that real growth is happening, so there’s no need to grasp for straws and pay earnings multiples that make no real-world sense for the few businesses that are “going to change the world.”

  1. Interest Rates: Don’t kid yourself that something like the 1970s is coming.

Rates might continue to go up, but nothing like what the inflationists keep harping on.

As opposed to that period, when America was the creditor for the rest of the world, today it’s the empire of debt. Any rise in Treasury yields is a severe drag on Washington’s ability to balance the books.

The CBO (Congressional Budget Office) calculated a record-breaking $9.7tn to the deficit until 2030, if rates just creep up by 1.00%.

The bonds bull market, which began in 1982 and lasted nearly 40 years, is over.

I’ve been active this past week, adding to existing positions, entering new ones, and planning my entrance into a number of core positions!

The first part of the “buy low, sell higher” sentence mandates, by definition, that one acts when the panic spreads.

PORTFOLIO UPDATES: MARCH 2021

A. Adding cash – I literally built a cash position, equivalent to 30% of the overall portfolio.

In two to three years, you’ll look back at March 2021 and ask yourself why you didn’t buy more.

B. Solar Energy – My two favorite companies, SolarEdge (SEDG) and Enphase (ENPH) have finally come down a lot.

They’ve been on our Watch Lists for years and I’ve been buying.

C. Expensive Tech – I want to take advantage of the balloon deflating and enter into positions, which were so illogically priced thus far that it made no sense.

Therefore, in accordance with our Watch Lists, I entered into positions in BigEcommerce (BIGC), Collective Growth (CGRO), Corsair Gaming (CRSR) and Protalix (PLX).

Each holding represents 1% to 1.5% of the portfolio.

D. Major New Positions – In the next four weeks, we will be revealing two of the highest-conviction speculative holdings in our company’s history.

In order to sell higher, one is forced, by mandate, to buy cheap.

Remember this is the Bible of real investors.

With gold, the bottom is probably within reach. The panic that tightening is coming has been fully discussed by the FED; it’s not planned!

Bank Of America Begins First Round Of Layoffs Since Pandemic-Inspired Freeze

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

After being canceled last year, the annual culling of the underperformers is underway once again at BofA.

Following a slowdown in layoffs during the pandemic as a coterie of megabanks (including BofA and Deutsche Bank) announced plans to suspend layoffs, Wall Street’s talent-churning machine is firing back up. Bank of America’s Global Banking and Markets division is reportedly preparing to move ahead with layoffs now that 2020 is finally over. Last year, BofA CEO Brian Moynihan promised that BofA would hold off on any further layoffs until 2021, even as other Wall Street banks started handing out pink slips again once the fall months arrived.

The cuts impacted employees in capital markets, research, and investment banking according to Business Insider. Sources from inside the bank said the cuts are part of the typical cycle of Wall Street layoffs, as banks seek to preserve top talent and cull underperformers. They added that the number of people fired was in line with prior years.

Some of those being handed pink slips are senior staffers who volunteered for buyouts.

It’s not exactly clear what percentage of staffers from the Global Banking and Markets division are being cut.

Staffers across Wall Street already had to contend with what was by all accounts a disappointing bonus season, despite the blowout profits reaped by big banks in 2020 as markets boomed. Investment banking and trading operations posted blowout performances in 2020, but institutions as a whole suffered steep profit declines as they braced for loan losses tied to the pandemic.

At BofA, management’s decision to waive a new bonus policy for veteran traders and dealmakers has caused “internal drama”, as the new rules were supposed to be applied broadly. Those who weren’t subject to the policy have been “gathering on calls to vent frustrations and discuss options”. In some ways, the divisiveness dates back to BofA’s 2008 takeover of Merrill Lynch, the Wall Street investment bank that nearly went under during the financial crisis.

Our COVID Police State Wants To Take Thanksgiving And Christmas Away From You Too

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

Haven’t they taken enough away from us already?  The deeply oppressive lockdowns that were instituted earlier this year plunged us into the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, caused the cancellation of thousands upon thousands of important events, and sent the suicide rate absolutely skyrocketing.

Once those lockdowns were lifted the American people were greatly relieved, but now our COVID police state is back for more.  As I have been documenting over the last several days, new lockdowns are being instituted all over the country right now, and even our most cherished holidays are being targeted.

Let me start by discussing an interview that CNN’s Jake Tapper just conducted with Anthony Fauci.  Most Americans had assumed that once a vaccine was widely distributed that we wouldn’t need masks or social distancing anymore.

Well, according to Fauci that is not the case at all

Jake Tapper said, “Once somebody has been immunized … Once the process is complete, does that mean they can take off their mask, don’t have to social distance, and go about their lives as before?”

Fauci said, “I would recommend that is not the case. I would recommend you have an added area of protection. Obviously, with 90 plus percent effective vaccine, you could feel much more confident, but I would recommend to people to not abandon all public health measures just because you’ve been vaccinated.”

As I have repeatedly warned my readers, they intend to change the way that we live permanently.

During that same interview, they were discussing a timeline for vaccine distribution, and Tapper blurted this out: “Christmas is probably not gonna be possible.”

In other words, Americans should not plan to have a normal Christmas this year because we are going to be expected to stay home, wear masks, and keep members of our extended family away.

Of course, Thanksgiving is a lot closer than Christmas, and our COVID overlords are telling us that we can’t have a normal Thanksgiving either.  For example, this is what the head of the CDC is saying

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield held a call with the nation’s governors on Tuesday. CNN obtained audio of the chat, in which Redfield said: “What we’re seeing as the increasing threat right now is actually acquisition of infection through small household gatherings… Particularly with Thanksgiving coming up, we think it’s really important to stress the vigilance of these continued mitigation steps in the household setting.”

Needless to say, many of our top politicians are going to fall right in line with the directives that our “health authorities” have issued.  For example, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has issued new restrictions for the city of Chicago which begin on Monday

The order, which begins Monday, extends through Thanksgiving festivities. Residents are “strongly advised” to not have guests in their homes outside of essential workers — even family and close friends.

“Chicago has reached a critical point in the second surge of COVID-19, demanding that we undertake this multi-faceted and comprehensive effort to stop the virus in its tracks,” said Mayor Lori Lightfoot in the release.

At least Lightfoot’s order is not as draconian as the mandate that California Governor Gavin Newsom has ordered all Californians to follow this Thanksgiving.

If you can believe it, Newsom has decided to limit Thanksgiving to a two hour “outdoor event”

Celebrities have taken to social media to slam California Governor Gavin Newsom’s ‘ridiculously unenforceable’ Thanksgiving crackdown that bans singing and shouting and limits the holiday to a two-hour outdoor event.

‘If my Aunt comes over, can I throw her a slice of turkey from the window?’ mocked actor Rob Schneider as he blasted the ‘Emperor Newsom’.

The good news is that the American people are sick and tired of having their rights taken away and are starting to push back against absurd restrictions such as these.

The bad news is that the new lockdowns that are being instituted all over the U.S. will inevitably crash our economy again.

If they last long enough, some industries may be almost entirely destroyed.  For example, even before these new lockdowns we were being told that it would be a miracle if half of the hotels in New York City survive this pandemic

According to Vijay Dandapani, chief executive of the Hotel Association of New York City, if half the city’s 640 hotels survive it will be a “great” outcome. While occupancy rates have recovered from their worst point in April where occupancy was down more than 60% year on year, they remain 20% lower than for the same month in 2019, a level which means much of the debt backing the properties will be impaired (i.e., default). Should New York impose a new round of draconian lockdowns, it will only get worse.

But of course there are some businesses that are booming during this time.

For instance, psychologists and therapists are extremely busy treating those that are “feeling lonely and depressed”

Business is booming for Maria Mir. Under normal circumstances, she takes little time off in November and December; the holidays are her busy season. But this is 2020. Nothing is normal. And everyone seems to need her at once.

Mir is a licensed marriage and family therapist. She’s used to patients feeling lonely and depressed as Thanksgiving and Christmas near. But “this particular time is different,” she says. “Even people who haven’t felt lonely in the past are now feeling that isolation.”

This is yet another example that shows that elections really matter.

For years, the American people have been voting for psychotic control freaks all over the nation, and so now we shouldn’t be surprised that they are actually acting like psychotic control freaks during a major crisis.

We are being told that this is going to be a very “dark winter”, and just like we witnessed earlier this year many Americans are feverishly stocking up on food and other basic goods…

Concerns that rising cases will encourage people to buy in bulk and stock up on basic goods has prompted major grocery chains to take pre-emptive action and limit purchases.

Kroger, the largest grocery chain in the U.S., has imposed purchase limits on essential goods like bath tissue, paper towels, disinfecting wipes and hand soap, according to Fox Business.

If you have not done so already, I would very much encourage you to get stocked up as well.

These are such uncertain times, and I have a feeling that things are going to get even crazier in the weeks ahead.

If the case numbers keep rising, the restrictions placed upon us are just going to become even more cumbersome, and it definitely appears that we are in for a very rough start in 2021.

ANY MINUTE NOW: Has Biden Won – VIOLENCE NEXT?

This article was contributed by Portfolio Wealth Global.

Lucy, you’ve got some ‘splainin’ to do! If these instances mentioned below even closely resemble reality, Biden’s victory lap is premature:

  1. A state stops counting and upon resumption, Biden’s tally surges.
  2. A USPS worker was arrested while bringing three absentee ballots from Canada into the U.S. – claims he took a wrong turn.
  3. Software glitches across the board. By the way, some of these software systems can be hacked online.
  4. Backdated envelopes.

For the sake of democracy and the American way, we hope these prove to be false or over-exaggerated, but we can’t deny that there are many Trump supporters who now doubt the official count.

When Trump tweeted “I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT,” it took him four minutes to reach 40K likes. When he tweeted “Joe Biden should not wrongfully claim the office of president. I could make that claim also. Legal proceedings are now beginning!” he received over 600K likes. These represent probably 10% of the people who genuinely believe this election was not conducted fairly, so, in reality, we believe millions of Americans are now convinced these results to be real.

This may become a legal battle and I’m pretty sure that markets won’t like that in the least.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

As you can see above, the media, in our opinion, will begin to report that a massive third wave of hospitalization and death cases has begun. With the elections currently tilting towards Democrats, all fingers will be pointed towards Trump (perhaps globally).

Biden’s security has been greatly enhanced, with a wide no-fly-zone over his home.

Germany has openly condemned President Trump’s behavior as dangerous and within his own party, he is under pressure to concede and to hand over the baton.

I am going to keep you posted on developments, perhaps even on a daily basis, since circumstances are changing so quickly.

For now, let’s recap what we got:

  1. Precious metals enjoyed an historic week of gains.

  1. Bitcoin, a cryptocurrency that we mentioned and highlighted right here in this newsletter when its price was less than $600/coin is now worth $16,000. This represents a 26.6x appreciation!
  2. Societe Generale, a very famous French bank, has calculated that QE programs have suppressed interest rates in the United States by a dramatic number.

This, of course, has served to widen the wealth gap, bring about societal unrest and lead to a debt bubble.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

If bonds were not purchased by the Federal Reserve, they argue, the S&P 500 would be 1,800 points and the NASDAQ 100 would be worth around 5,000 points.

The proof is in the pudding.

  1. Lastly, because of the gain in the price of gold, which appears to have bottomed around $1,860 and silver, which appears to have bottomed just below $23.00, the sector has been recovering and mining shares are up noticeably.

99.9% CHANCE TRUMP GETS THE BOOT!

This article was contributed by Future Money Trends. 

Unless something that not even the authors of the most elaborate Hollywood sci-fi movie can concoct, happens in a few days (or weeks), Joe Biden will be announced as the 46th President of the United States.

I’m not saying that because I don’t believe that there were voting irregularities, but I don’t want to provide false hope to Trump supporters. There is no smoke without a fire, so clearly, things did happen, but the lead between the two candidates is 4.3M votes, so it has to be one giant scandal, if the ballots were messed with.

There will be recounts and there will be and already are court appeals, but from all of the data that I’ve been able to put together, the world is now preparing for a Biden presidency.

The big question is whether or not the Georgia recount will actually flip the state in terms of their Senators, which might give the Democrats a “blue sweep,” a result that the markets are currently not pricing in and they definitely do not like!

The markets have celebrated the gridlock situation in Washington since they’ve deduced it to mean that in the next four years:

  1. We won’t see any tax hikes (or cuts)
  2. No new wars (probably)
  3. No reckless spending programs on climate change initiatives
  4. No resumption of the Obama-era massive regulatory environment
  5. No ban on fracking

Gridlock, for lack of a better word, guarantees that the majority of the pro-growth agenda from the Trump administration will remain intact (for the most part) and that the power struggles in Washington will probably be negotiated on an even keel since there will be checks and balances between the red and blue agendas.

It also means that any delays in fiscal programs due to feistiness between the two sides will be resolved through currency printing by the Federal Reserve, in the interim.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

We are left with the following question: how will global markets and the U.S. stock market trade in light of this new era upon us – Will it be more like 1987 or more like 2009?

This week, the dollar weakened greatly.

Stocks soared by the most they have in a post-election week since Franklin Delano Roosevelt was sworn in in the early 1930s.

Here are some worrisome risks to consider, going forward:

  1. Will Biden’s inauguration usher in a period of lockdowns?
  2. Will Trump, in the interim period, wish to approve and oversee a massive stimulus program as his last hurrah?
  3. Are more stories about Hunter Biden’s laptop going to create national security risks for Joe’s approval process?

With these in mind, I want to recap the performance of our five watch lists from 2020 (starting with the first one) and also note that we’ll publish additional summaries of companies not mentioned in these reports but that we did profile in these pages. We’ll be doing this in the coming days and weeks, as well as highlighting two new opportunities!

The first watch list was posted right after the March Madness week. It offered once-in-a-decade (some say even more) opportunities to consider stocks while they sold off badly. The watch list, which can be accessed HERE, was comprised of 27 securities in total.

26 securities are up considerably, with a number of them trading 100%+ above their March lows, an impressive achievement.

Expect updates on our other 4 watch lists, as well as companies mentioned in this newsletter this year. It’s been a tremendous comeback year since March and we’ve got plenty to report on!

Prepare: COVID-19 Cases Surge Again In Record Numbers

They are really pushing the fear of this coronavirus case surge. The United States allegedly reported 116,707 new coronavirus infections on Thursday, as 20 states saw their highest daily counts yet.

Prepare for the likelihood of another lockdown. As we’ve said before, if they can get away with putting everyone on house arrest again, they will do it. The recent election chaos is nothing more than a distraction, and the mainstream media won’t report on much other than the COVID-19 scam.

Other countries are locking down again, and people are slowly figuring out that this is all an elaborate elitist hoax:

Far tougher restrictions are being rolled out across Europe, with Greece becoming the latest country to bar residents from leaving their homes for all but a handful of essential tasks.

In London, more than 100 people were arrested Thursday night during a demonstration against England’s month-long lockdown, which took effect earlier in the day. The London Metropolitan Police Service said in a statement that the majority of arrests were for breaches of the new lockdown rules, which include a 10 p.m. curfew and a ban on large gatherings. –Washington Post

The continued reporting of more restrictive and draconian lockdowns in Europe and elsewhere is an attempt to desensitize the American public to another even more sinister lockdown. Do not consent to this tyranny no matter who is chosen to be the next president. We have to start doing what’s right instead of blindly following political parasites, regardless of the letter they stick behind their name.

Prepare to be tracked and traced and obey the orders of the medical martial law police state commanders.

According to CNN, the CDC says it is time to develop a testing strategy to identify asymptomatic cases, while Pfizer has opted out of the government’s vaccine distribution system. As infections across Europe “rise exponentially”, Italy will impose a new stay-at-home order, England has entered a new national lockdown, and France, Poland, and Russia are reporting record case numbers.

Anyone who has been following along and can see beyond the facade of what this plandemic is knows this is all bein set up to roll out an agenda.  This is the Great Reset, The New World Order, and the complete and total enslavement permanently of the entire human race.

Please have your preps in place.  Time is almost up and it isn’t going to matter who wins the election. The chaos is coming, they’ve planned and promised. Stay alert, because they will not stop.

Biden Gains On Trump In PA, Takes Lead In Georgia, As Day Three Of Post-Election Counting Continues

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge.

As we head into day three of counting the ballots, Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt told CNN he expects an update in the next few hours as they kept counting through the night.

There are 50,000 votes left to be counted there, he said. Despite a dustup that was the result of observers from both the Trump and Biden campaigns have been present observing the counting process, Schmidt said. “We have no doubt when the count is finished, Senator Harris and I will be declared the winners” he added.

Here’s the most up to date map from Bloomberg:

Source: Bloomberg

 

In Georgia, Biden took a lead of more than 900 votes at about 0430 Friday morning: the lead has since grown to 1,096 votes. He gained the lead initially came after Clayton County in the Atlanta suburbs reported a bucket of ballots. Biden had been winning a huge proportion of the votes in that area. Other Atlanta suburbs are still reporting.

In PA, Trump’s lead stood at 18,229 votes at 0600ET though it seems to steadily be shrinking. More mailed-in ballots, which Biden is winning by a healthy margin, are still expected to be counted, with many of them from the heavily Democratic city of Philadelphia and its suburbs. More mailed-in ballots are also set to be counted on Friday in Allegheny County, the home of Pittsburgh.

However, in Georgia, a local reporter summed up the situation with all the attendant frustration and vitriol. Robin Kemp, the reporter in Clayton County, acknowledged that “yes” the votes are still being counted” and that no clear winner has emerged.

If, by some miracle, Biden does pull off a victory in Georgia, it would be a historic moment for Dems. But it wouldn’t necessarily translate to a victory: Also, for readers who aren’t familiar with the other votes that take days to fully count these are validly cast ballots, just being counted now.

Biden also retains leads in the states of Nevada and Arizona, where ballots are still being counted, and mail-in ballots from thousands of older retirees remain to be counted.

With PA remaining the biggest available prize, every major network has Biden leading with at least 253 electoral votes, meaning that if he were to win Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes, he would have more than the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency. Fox News and the Associated Press have both called the race for Biden in Arizona, projecting him as the winner of that state’s 11 electoral votes, though other networks have abstained.

Our Imperial Presidency

This article was originally published by Charles Hugh Smith at Of Two Minds Blog.

Regardless of who holds the office, America’s Imperial Project and its Imperial Presidency are due for a grand reckoning.

While elections and party politics generate the emotions and headlines, the truly consequential change in American governance has been the ascendancy of the Imperial Presidency over the past 75 years, since the end of World War II.

As commander-in-chief of the armed forces, the Constitution grants the President extraordinary but temporary powers in wartime. With the power to declare war granted solely to Congress, this dangerous (in the Founders’ view) expansion of Executive power was tolerated because it was temporary and necessary in the fast-moving emergency of war.

Congress has declared war a total of five times, while U.S. armed forces have been deployed in conflicts 300 times. So in 295 conflicts out of 300, the president had sole discretion. Various stamps of Congressional approval of these wartime powers have been given over the decades, but these are more for show than actual limits on presidential powers.

The extraordinary powers granted to President Roosevelt in World War II did not expire at the end of the war. Rather, the powers of the presidency expanded along with the National Security agencies which rose to unprecedented power in the Cold War era of 1945 – 1991. The entire alphabet soup of the National Security State–CIA, NSA, DIA, etc.–serve the president, not Congress, which has been relegated the role of toothless oversight.

Historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.’s 1973 book, The Imperial Presidency, introduced the term Imperial Presidency into the American lexicon.

While historians have documented the rise of Executive power at the expense of the legislative branch and pundits have wrung their hands over this concentration of vast, often secret power in the presidency, nobody within the status quo has addressed the core reason behind the rise of the Imperial Presidency: America’s Empire requires a CEO/Emperor as a simple operational reality.

You can’t run a global military/commercial/diplomatic empire with a slow-moving legislative body; you need a dynamic CEO (chief executive officer) with essentially unlimited powers to do whatever it takes to run the empire.

Empires need an emperor, and this is the history of post-WW2 America. As the victor, the U.S. emerged with a global reach and power that can only be described as imperial. While the USSR soon gained military parity with nuclear weapons and vast tank armies aimed at Western Europe, the commercial empire was solely American.

While some cheered America’s global empire and others shouldered it as a necessary Cold war burden, the status quo relished the immense expansion of centralized bureaucratic and executive powers.

An Imperial President requires the Imperial machinery of global hegemony, and so the National Security State replaced the elected government as the real power. For a peek behind the curtain of the Imperial Presidency’s powers, please read The Enemies Briefcase: Secret powers and the presidency.

The last time the U.S. Congress pushed back against the Imperial Presidency and Security Agencies was 45 years ago, in 1975. In response to the domestic over-reach of the ImperialPresidency (Watergate) and the security agencies (COINTELPRO, etc.), the Church Committee undertook the first comprehensive review of the presidency’s expansive secret powers and the secret powers wielded by the National Security State.

The domestic abuses of power by the FBI and CIA included the blatantly illegal COINTELPRO programs aimed at destroying the anti-war / civil rights movements in the 1960s and early 1970s.

We know from the Church Committee reports that the FBI and CIA broke numerous federal laws and violated every constitutional limit on their powers as a matter of daily policy. The abuses of power were not the work of rogue agents or even rogue agencies; the abuses were SOP (standard operating procedures) for the Imperial machinery of the presidency and the security agencies that served the essentially unlimited power of the Imperial presidency.

For more on COINTELPRO, please read War at Home: Covert action against U.S. activists and what we can do about it and/or Cointelpro: The FBI’s Secret War on Political Freedom.

Empires arise, evolve, and collapse just like nations. Edward Luttwak’s insightful book The Grand Strategy of the Roman Empire: From the First Century CE to the Third outlines the three stages of Empire.

Luttwak describes the first stage of expansion thusly:

“With brutal simplicity, it might be said that with the first system the Romans of the republic conquered much to serve the interests of the few, those living in the city–and in fact still fewer, those best placed to control policy.”

The second stage spread the benefits of the Empire much more broadly:

“During the first century A.D., Roman ideas evolved toward a much broader and altogether more benevolent conception of empire… men born in lands far from Rome could call themselves Roman and have their claim fully allowed, and the frontiers were efficiently defended to defend the growing prosperity of all, and not merely the privileged.”

The third stage is one of rising inequality:

“In the wake of the great crisis of the third century, the provision of security became an increasingly heavy charge on society, a charge unevenly distributed, which could enrich the wealthy and ruin the poor. The machinery of the empire now became increasingly self-serving, with its tax collectors, administrators and soldiers of much greater use to one another than to society at large.

That line describes the American state and central bank (the Federal Reserve) perfectly. As the Imperial Presidency’s powers have expanded to the top of the S-Curve, so too has self-serving greed supported by everyday abuses of power reached new heights.

Who’s benefited mightily from Imperial over-reach? As the chart below indicates, the top 1% of America’s power elite has benefited to a degree that’s unmatched around the world. The military-industrial sector has prospered (see chart below) as have the agencies of the National Security State. As for the bottom 99%: suck it up, debt-serfs and tax donkeys: yours is not to make a reply or reason why, yours is to do and die.

Regardless of who holds the office, America’s Imperial Project and its Imperial Presidency are due for a grand reckoning. Empires require an emperor, and perhaps America will finally tire of its self-serving Empire and its Imperial Presidency.

2020 Election: Trump Blasts Vote-Count Delays As “Fraud On The American Public”

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zerohedge. 

…and this is for all the marbles.

RESULTS (0235ET):

TRUMP

Total 213 – KY (8), IN (11), WV (5), SC (9), AL (9), TN (11), OK (7), MS (6), ME (1/2) FL (29), AR (6), WY (3), LA (8), ND (3), SD (3), NE (4/5), KS (6), MO (10), UT (6), ID (4), OH (18), TX (38), IA (6), MT (3)

BIDEN

Total 238 – VT (3), VA (13), CT (7), IL (20), DE (3), NJ (14), RI (4), ME (1/2), MA (11), MD (10), DC (3), NY (29), NM (5), CO (9), NH (4), NE (1/5) CA (55), OR (7), WA (12), AZ (11), NM (5), HI (4), MN (10)

Only one state flipped (for now if Fox projections hold): Arizona for Biden.

NBC News projects that Democrats will maintain their control of the House of Representatives.

It’s looking less and less likely that the Democrats will take over the Senate. They lost crucial races in Montana and Iowa and their path is narrowing rapidly.

Mail-in ballot delays are hitting now:

  • WI (no way we’re announcing tonight),
  • MI (Friday),
  • PA (no count anytime soon) and
  • GA (biggest Dem county stopped counting, Trump leading by 300k).

That’s 62 electoral votes in total. 62 is a big number in a race for 270. That’s why we might not know tonight.

Jonathan Tamari of the Philadelphia Inquirer warned that:

One huge red flag for Biden in PA: He’s currently trailing in Chester County, a key suburb that Clinton won by 25.5k – and Dems were counting on for a bigger win. Still a lot of mail ballots not counted there, but Biden needs to win big there.”

Biden addressed the nation at 0045ET:

“Your patience is commendable. We knew this was going to go long, but who knew we were going to go into tomorrow morning, maybe even longer. But look, we feel good about where we are. We really do. I’m here to tell you tonight we feel confident we are going to win this election.”

“We believe we’re on track to win this election,” Biden says.

“We can know the results as early as tomorrow morning but it may take a little longer. As I’ve said all along it’s not my place or Donald Trump’s place to say who wins the election, it’s up to the American people.”

“Keep the faith guys! We’re going to win this”

Trump replied, via tweet:

“We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election. We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!”

Adding that he will be making a statement tonight, “a big win!”

Twitter immediately censored it…

As Michael Tracey noted, “We’re approaching a nightmare scenario. They’re both essentially declaring victory.”

Trump delivered a statement at 0220ET. Trump says “millions and millions of people voted for us tonight, and a very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people, and we won’t stand for it.”

He said he was getting ready for a “big celebration. We were winning everything and all of a sudden it was just called off.”

“We won states that we weren’t expecting to win.”

“It’s also clear that we have won Georgia. We’re up by 2.5%”

“Arizona we have a lot of life in that and somebody said — somebody declared it was a victory for him.”

“We’ve clearly won North Carolina, we’re up 1.4%.”

“Most importantly we are winning Pennsylvania by a tremendous amount.”

“we had such a big night. You look at all the margins we won them by.”

“I said: What happened to the election, it’s off.”

Trump says Democrats “knew they couldn’t win, so they said let’s go to court.”

This is a fraud on the American public, this is an embarrassment to our country. We were getting ready to win this election, frankly we did win this election. So our goal now is to ensure the integrity for the good of this nation.”

“We’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 AM in the morning and add them to the list.”

“We will win this.”

As Victor Davis Hanson notes, the 2020 election is not just about Joe Biden sitting on a perceived lead and trying to run out the clock against barnstorming incumbent President Trump. It is really a choice between changing rules when they are deemed inconvenient and respecting constitutional norms and long-held traditions that have served America well for many years.

Upsets/Notable

Big Loss For Trump – Fox calls Arizona for Biden

Additionally, Democrat Mark Kelly is way ahead of GOP incumbent Martha McSally in the Arizona Senate race. More than 10 points ahead with 73% of precincts reporting.

The Trump campaign is not happy at the early call from Fox. Campaign spokesman Jason Miller tweeted:

We only need 61% of the outstanding, uncounted Election Day votes in Arizona to win.

These votes are coming from “our counties,” and the 61% figure is very doable based on what our other Election Day votes are looking like.

@FoxNews should retract their call immediately.

Politico / WSJ / NYT not calling AZ for Biden

Republicans Flip Alabama Senate Seat

AP is projecting that Tom Tuberville, a former Auburn University football coach, has won the Senate race in the red state of Alabama, unseating Democrat Doug Jones who won the seat in a special election in 2017. So that’s a pickup for the Republicans. The Democrats so far have picked up one Senate seat — Cory Gardner’s in Colorado.

Bookies Flip To Trump Favorite

BetFair Exchange has flipped its odds to Trump (77%) and Biden (23%)

Meanwhile over at PredictIt…

Some folks are gonna be upset…

Florida

Decision Desk HQ has called Florida for Trump.

In 2016, Clinton beat Trump by about 290,000 votes in Miami-Dade. Currently, Biden’s up just a bit over 90,000.

Trump has picked up votes among black and Latino Floridians over Clinton.

Meanwhile, we may be seeing our first House seat flip of the night as freshman Democrat Debbie Mucarsel-Powell is losing to Republican Carlos Gimenez in Florida’s 26th congressional district with 83% of precincts reporting.

In Colorado, Fox News projects that Democrat John Hickenlooper has defeated incumbent Republican GOP Senator Cory Gardner.

Here are the deadlines in battleground states:

Axios reports when each state official has said we can expect unofficial election results:

  1. Arizona: Early ballots will have to have the signatures verified, and there’s no way to know how many voters will turn those in on Election Day, according to Sophia Solis, spokesperson for the office of Arizona’s secretary of state.
  2. Florida: Election night results will not be released at the state level until 8 pm Eastern, according to a spokesperson for the Florida Department of State. The spokesperson declined to provide any other projections for the timing of the results.
  3. Georgia: Results are expected late Tuesday for non-close races. Even in the close races, Walter Jones, spokesperson for the Secretary of State office said, they will probably have it sorted out by Wednesday.
  4. Michigan: The Secretary of State’s office expects it to take until roughly Friday to process and count all the ballots, according to spokesperson Tracy Wimmer.
  5. Minnesota: “We expect that all or substantially all of in-person election day votes and absentee votes will be reported election night or soon after,” said Peter Bartz-Gallagher, a spokesperson for the Secretary of State’s office.
  6. North Carolina: “Results reported by the end of election night will include 97 percent or more of all ballots cast in North Carolina in the 2020 general election,” according to the Board of Elections.
  7. Ohio: “We expect results from Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning,” said Maggie Sheehan, press secretary for the Ohio Secretary of State’s office.
  8. Pennsylvania: Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar said in a recent interview that she expects the “overwhelming majority” of votes will be counted by Friday, Nov 6.
  9. Texas: The Texas secretary of state’s office declined to provide any expected timeline given the large size of the state and those elections are run on a county-by-county-basis.
  10. Wisconsin: “In some bigger cities, especially where they count absentee ballots at a central location instead of the polling place, we might not see all the results until the next morning,” said Reid Magney, a spokesperson for the Wisconsin Elections Commission.

On election night itself, Michael Snyder says the most important state to focus on will be Florida.  As I discussed in a previous article, Florida is one of the states that allow mail-in ballots to be counted in advance, and we should have a really good idea of what the results are going to look like in the state by the end of the night.

If Biden is declared the winner in Florida on election night, that is going to be a really, really bad sign for Trump.  There really isn’t a path to 270 electoral votes for Trump without Florida.

If Trump wins Florida, or if the vote is too close to call, then Pennsylvania becomes crucially important.

Unfortunately, Pennsylvania is one of the states that does not allow mail-in ballots to be counted in advance, and they are going to have millions of them to count.

At this point, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is openly admitting that “it may take longer than usual to count every vote”

‘These are unprecedented times. Because of the coronavirus, there were millions of votes cast by mail so it may take longer than usual to count every vote,’ he says in a new ad for the nonpartisan group, The Voter Project.

‘The folks in our election offices – your neighbors, family and friends are working hard ensuring every single vote is counted,’ he says.

Pennsylvania is supposed to have every vote counted by Friday, but we are deeply skeptical.

Interestingly, and not exactly confidence-inspiring, Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon reportedly said this afternoon that:

“We continue to have multiple pathways to 270 electoral votes” says they can win 270 even without PA and FL,” according to Time’s Charlotte Alter.

*  *  *

Or follow along with Matt Taibbi and Katie Halper as they drink and comment on the state-by-state counts (but definitely do not declare any victory).


As Matt Taibbi writes, in life, as in cult sci-fi/adventure thrillers starring Geneva’s own Christopher Lambert, winner takes all:

Unfortunately, there are good reasons to doubt we’ll see anyone’s head fully lopped off this evening. The enormous number of mail-in votes, coupled with a slate of conflicting state rules about when such votes are counted – added to a high likelihood of unpredictable logistical difficulties associated with the pandemic – make a delayed conclusion to the Trump-Biden electoral contest very possible.

Usually, high in-person turnout favors Democrats. This year, because so many Democrats voted early (and Republicans have been warned away from mail ballots), the situation will likely be reversed. This means we could very well have early results that look confusing, maybe even like a wipeout for Trump, when what we’re actually seeing is just in-person votes being counted faster than mail votes. We also could see opposite scenarios.

Overall, the likelihood is that Joe Biden will win, and comfortably, but the issue is when that result comes in. Imagine the chaos of the Iowa Democratic caucus, with all the attendant scarcely-believable explanations coming from officials and vote-counters, expanded to presidential scale. That’s the horror-movie scenario for this evening.

Because of the fear both sides have about the results, the quantity of media spin tonight is likely to be, as rule 7 below notes, “unprecedented.” Partisans from both red and blue camps will be prepping audiences for bad news in ways that deflect blame from their own consultant pals, and also planting seeds for arguments likely to be made in contested-result scenarios. Expect Republicans to tell tales of trucks of fake ballots shipped over the Rio Grande in burlap sacks, while Democrats might counter with photos of wheelchair-bound minority voters invited to exercise their democratic covenant at ad-hoc ballot stations re-located to the top of hundred-foot climbing walls.

DRINKING GAME RULES

The main rule is implied: just start drinking and don’t stop for the next few years.

As for tonight specifically, here goes:

Drink for EVERY MENTION of:

1) “Red mirage”;

2) “Blue mirage”;

3) “Path to victory” or “route to victory”;

4) “Most important election of our lifetime”;

5) “Still too close to call”;

6) “Shy Trump supporter”;

7) “Unprecedented”;

8) “Firewall.” Double if this is accompanied by an awkward effort by an anchor to inoffensively characterize the minority voting bloc to which they’re ascribing monolithic voting tendencies;

9) “Neck and neck”;

10) “Broward County” or “Miami-Dade”;

11) “It could be a big night for (whatever)”;

12) “It all comes down to Pennsylvania.”

Drink EVERY TIME:

13) A commentator says “(something) is on the ballot tonight,” and that something is not the name of a candidate;

14) John King looks visibly aroused on the way to the Magic Wall;

15) A member of the media uses the word “we” to describe Democratic Party results;

16) A Republican accuses Democrats of stuffing ballots. Double if the alleged plot involves the use of undocumented immigrants as sham voters;

17) A Democrat mentions voter suppression. Double if this is accompanied by a warning that this is the “only way” Trump could win;

18) Any commentator suggests Trump will not give up power if he loses;

19) Someone reports the possibility of results-delaying litigation over a new set of voting irregularities detected today;

20) A commentator reacts to a result by seriously wondering aloud if Russians are meddling;

21) There is a video of Melania Trump looking a little too happy that her husband is losing;

22) Trump ups the ante on an outrageous lie about his opponents at the 11th hour, like that Biden has already written an executive order canceling free enterprise, or has decided to grant American citizenship to everyone in Bangladesh;

23) Biden says something incomprehensible, dozes off or forgets whom he’s talking to within a TV appearance;

24) Someone cuts to a shot of boarded-up windows. Double when windows are actually broken.

25) Someone cries on set as results come in. Or, alternatively, does the political version of the Bill Simmons fist pump:

Finally, we fall back to Buckminster Fuller’s infamous quote for some context tonight:

If you take all the machinery in the world and dump it in the ocean, within months more than half of all humanity will die and within another six months they’d almost all be gone; if you took all the politicians in the world, put them in a rocket, and sent them to the moon, everyone would get along fine.

Stay safe and remember that politics is all about subverting you emotionally and then reaping your production. The rest are details.

AMERICA VOTES: Are Trump Crusaders CORRECT?

This article was contributed by Portfolio Wealth Global. 

Today, America is voting. One year ago, at this time, President Trump was pretty confident that he’d win a 2nd term. After all, tax cuts and major regulatory hurdles were removed. Through a combination of natural trends that were in motion and his administration’s policies, America was booming, economically speaking and the improvement was felt by enough Americans to give Trump a landslide victory.

Covid-19 opened the door for Democrats to re-enter the presidential race, so to speak; it forced Mr. Trump to manage a healthcare crisis, which is obviously not what he really wants to do, as a business-oriented individual. Many millions who weren’t raving Trump fans, but were quite happy with the way their careers and finances were going, were laid-off and now had an excuse to change their tune on the Republican Party.

It’s pretty safe to say that President Trump hates this virus, from a personal perspective. He was riding on the gravy train until it came along and forever changed many aspects of our lives, at least for the next 5-10 years.

The markets have changed as well; the puck has moved towards fiscal stimulus and away from a monetary one. Tens of millions of Millennials have now become actively involved in stocks.

If, up until now, any word uttered from the mouths of Bernanke, Yellen or Powell, caused trillions of dollars to change hands, the next president will have an impact even greater than that. There are new top-trending fund managers; less than 1% of the population has truly realized just how different of a world we are entering.

The markets are now following what Congress does more than it cares for what the Federal Reserve can do. As a child, if you’d gone to Six Flags and went on the same ride a few times, even if it was the best one, the thrill factor had a diminishing effect. Even if there were no lines and you could do it time and again, most kids wouldn’t.

They’d much rather try a brand-new ride, a rollercoaster that they’ve never seen before – one with new colors and a fresh design in another part of the park.

Fiscal stimulus measures like direct deposits, checks to the bank account, and other socio-economic policies, which we will see in the years ahead, will be a critical catalyst for markets. They will be much broader in scope than Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security, and include demographics much younger than retirees.

We believe the U.S. government will act in such a way that inflationary expectations will rise, while the FED will attempt to suppress rates, thus sustaining negative real rates (as we’ve predicted for more than a year), while leaving the nominal bond yield in the positive range.

Trump or Biden; Washington will be fully engaged in MASSIVE DEFICIT SPENDING in this decade and commodity investors will flourish.

TODAY IS THE DAY: JB vs. DT – MY PREDICTION!

This article was contributed by Future Money Trends. 

The United States and many parts of the Western World, as well as developing nations, are watching their screens today, anticipating how the elections will turn out.

Most voters don’t pick their president based on results, but on how they make them feel. 70% of voters have no idea what the platform of Donald Trump or Joe Biden is; they are familiar with buzzwords and general terms but can’t or won’t devote the time it takes to arrive at a factual, wise, and wholehearted decision.

This election day is determined by peer pressure, media propaganda, and largely by the way the candidate makes you feel about whether or not you’d want to be his friend.

A political leader with the responsibilities of the president doesn’t have to fit into that slot of “a nice guy to have coffee with,” although it doesn’t hurt.

This job of occupying the White House between now and 2024 is about one thing: the ABILITY to perform the work required.

FutureMoneyTrends.com believes that Donald Trump is in trouble in Arizona, a state that could tilt the balance towards the Democrats. We also believe that Trump crusaders woke up at 5 AM today and are doing anything they can possibly do to help their candidate.

Therefore, our prediction is that Donald Trump is likely to win, by securing PA, MI, and NC, as well as FL and GA, giving him 308 Electoral College votes, but we shall see.

What I’d like to do now is analyze the precious metal sector for each of the two scenarios, a Biden victory and a Trump one:

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Between now and December 8th, when the electoral college vote is materially finalized, there might be legal debates that arise due to the probability of mail-in fraud, late voting, or other manipulative actions.

What markets want more than the certainty of knowing who will be the next President of The United States is MORE STIMULUS.

Starting in March, after they poured everything they had into this economy, the Federal Reserve has become second fiddle to Congress.

QE programs and low, zero, or negative interest rates are the norm. Markets have already priced in the fact that they’ll stay there for years. Households can only function and originate mortgages thanks to this. Businesses can only recycle loans, refinance debt, and borrow funds because of it. Governments can only keep their giant deficits in motion due to this reality, and it won’t change anytime soon.

Joe Biden and the Democrats – The most important policy change that will be enacted if Biden ends up winning is his attitude towards China.

Biden is likely to ease up big time.

This is important because this kid-gloves approach is likely to cause the world to be less fearful of animosity between these two countries, the world’s strongest empires. As you know, in the past four years, President Trump has not started any new war; his attitude towards foreign policy included far less back-channeling and much more of a public approach, putting pressure on China, Europe, and the Middle East, out in the open. Our opinion is that Biden’s way could lead to a Chinese confidence boost and new war fronts could emerge, just like when Russia felt brave enough to attack Ukraine.

The bottom line is that a Biden victory is likely detrimental to the U.S. dollar and we believe that under his administration, commodities and stocks will trade in tandem, OPPOSITE TO HOW they did in the past twelve years.

Since silver is 55% below its all-time high, our rating of it as a likely winner is even bigger than gold’s. We would not be surprised to see strong silver performance in 2021 and beyond, testing its legendary $50/ounce high.

2020 ability brainwashed cities division Donald Trump elections experts Federal Reserve Forecasting Gross Domestic Product Intelwars Joe Biden Military propaganda ratings selections Social Media States system is failing think United States

WE HAVE A WINNER: ELECTIONS 2020!

This article was contributed by the Wealth Research Group. 

Around the globe, millions of media personnel, content creators, news websites, propaganda outlets, and social media giants are covering the elections; it’s a ratings bonanza.

People are literally glued to their screens since this election does matter; it is a struggle for the soul of a nation that has dominated planet Earth, without question, since the end of WW2.

Though it only comprises 4% of the global population, its economic engine contributes just below 25% of global GDP. Its military presence in around 150 countries is unprecedented. Its companies are some of the largest in the world (Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and Facebook) and in the decade that has just begun, we’ll probably witness 30-100 more TRILLION-DOLLAR businesses being born on U.S. soil, some of which are currently just ideas, germinating in the minds of future entrepreneurs.

The United States is a country of extreme contrast between the various states that comprise the union and the glue that has bound them together since 1776 – a cocktail of shared values, which are cherished by its citizens, is potentially passing its expiration date.

Today, more than ever before in my lifetime, and to my knowledge, more than any other time in the 20th and 21st centuries, this glue is coming undone.

The differences of opinions on just about any topic are huge, but more than that, there is a lack of willingness to compromise.

Each side does not believe that it is worthwhile to be flexible with the other; the image that each American has of his fellow American who votes for the other party, or who feels differently than him on a certain topic, is that he is brainwashed and can’t see the truth.

It’s a slippery slope.

I’m not here to predict civil war or the end of the union; my sole purpose with WealthResearchgroup.com publications, through this newsletter, is to provide context, value and to empower you to think about the big things in life – not dwelling on the transitory, temporary, flitting or petty.

The winner of today’s elections could be either Joe Biden or Donald Trump, but the captain of the ship that is your life is YOU, so you must “win” this election. You need to take today and reclaim victory over your own circumstances. Have you plateaued? Time to grow above it…

Personally, we believe Trump can do it and will do it!

Life boils down to 24-hour sessions, where between 30% and 33% is devoted to a rejuvenation of the mind, body, and soul via sound sleep. Before you do anything else, give this some thought, since it has been proven beyond any shadow of a doubt that human beings MUST SLEEP WELL.

Spend time creating the ideal environment for you – bed, linens, mattress, no lighting, and zero distractions; think of the process and the routine of this important human task – which you do EVERY DAY – and perfect it. You’ll see major results. The late Kobe Bryant attributed sleep tactics to winning his back-to-back championships in his second go at them.

Think of the last 15-30 minutes of your waking hours and of the first 30 minutes, upon getting up; it is proven that what you focus on and pay attention to at those times will be engrained in your life – do you read? Pay gratitude? Write down today’s/tomorrow’s tasks?

Once you’re up, you spend 65%-70% of your life in the state of full operation and must divide it between BODY, INTELLECT, and SOUL, giving these three the best you can deliver to them. Unhappiness originates from a lack of fulfillment in one or more of these areas, the only ones that human beings are made out of.

Are you inspired to live an amazing life, to put the past behind you for good, and just LIVE?

Here are big questions to ask, make decisions about, and act with UNWAVERING FAITH to accomplish:

  1. Are you good at what you do? That will be a determining factor in how much money you’ll make. Can you perform above and beyond what’s expected of you, constantly evolving, never sleeping while on guard? You have to OUTGROW your current position, in order for more opportunities to arrive. I faced many issues over the years, hitting brick walls time and again, determined to rise up to the next level, but not connecting the dots on what’s missing. Relentlessly, I kept analyzing and internally improving, until breakthroughs started to appear.
  2. If you happen to be good at something that you don’t particularly like, do you have pastime hobbies that elevate you and offset the fact that your primary source of income comes at a cost of personal sacrifice? Not everyone that loves basketball gets to make a career out of it…
  3. Are you in love? Do you share your life and your time with someone who supports you, is loyal to you, and is fun to be with? One of the lucky breaks I caught was to find the perfect woman for me when I was just 21. We’ve been together ever since, started a family, and have a bond that is supportive of both of us.
  4. Do you love your neighborhood, city, and state? The world is your oyster in the 21st century; you’re not a plant anymore.

These are just questions to start-off with; no scientific study has ever found and none ever will that there’s a limit to the amount of brain cells, which can be developed in order to perform a certain task, to accomplish a given feat or mission; human beings can grow in patience, kindness, generosity, tolerance, flexibility, forgiveness, loyalty, positivity, cheerfulness, poise and the only limits are ones that we believe in and set for ourselves.

Don’t compare yourself to anybody else and don’t think anyone else has a secret that you don’t possess. The difference between people is not external, but in the way THEY THINK.

Think, Think, Think!

Donald Trump Election 2020 electoral college experts Forecasting Intelwars Joe Biden Market Crash markets mining industry selection sell off volatility index Votes Voting

2 DAYS TO GO: This Race Is TIGHT!

This article was contributed by Portfolio Wealth Global. 

The volatility index is screaming at us. History says that we are in one of the most make-or-break moments for stocks in the past three decades.

On October 28th, the VIX closed above 40, which happens very rarely; it’s a caution sign of the highest order. Literally, VIX closes over that level less than 3% of the time.

My gut instinct is that there’s potential for a big sell-off if the elections don’t end in the way that big money managers believe they will.

When we look at how gold fits into this picture, I want to remind you that between 2017 and 2020, no public mentions of any discovery of 2M ounces or more has been accomplished; the mining industry is still traumatized by the bear market and is behaving with caution.

One cannot overstate the need to think professionally and to be mindful of the fact that the profits do not justify prices on a broad-based index level. Certainly, the opportunities are with individual securities, if you’re capable of understanding businesses and feel comfortable risking funds.

The S&P 500 has never crashed this severely in the week leading up to a presidential election; something is clearly not right. Both the Dow Jones and the NASDAQ have already entered correction mode (down over -10% from their highs).

What I think most people are not prepared for is the possibility that their country or state will re-enter some sort of stay-at-home order and even quarantine.

Lockdowns are in the cards!

The U.S. is experiencing a “V”-shaped recovery, but this data hardly shows the distress that is really out there.

So, what’s in store for Tuesday?

Again, because of the Electoral College system, people in the swing states will determine who will sit in office for the next four years. According to my calculations, there are 195 swing votes, which is a lot.

Because of the way the Electoral College voting works, the fact that Democrats get California, New York, Illinois, New Jersey, and Virginia, comprising 173 votes, along with Massachusetts and Washington State, which add another 23 votes, for a total of 196, means they will turn their focus on just winning in several other small states and they’re in.

Because California is such a big deal, this system makes it very difficult for Trump, who doesn’t stand a chance there.

He doesn’t even campaign in California…

His focus and his message are that he will continue opening up the economy, dealing with the virus while respecting people’s freedoms, while instilling the fear that Joe Biden will enforce major lockdowns, school closures, and trample on your civil rights.

On the other end, Biden will show Trump as reckless and irresponsible, holding him accountable for the deaths, because of his “haste” in opening up.

We shall see where public opinion ends up on these matters in addition to other hot topics.

candidates Donald Trump election experts Forecasting Headline News immoral Intelwars Joe Biden markets Opinions Politics selection support Voting voting for a politician

It WOULDN’T Take Much: Markets COULD IMPLODE!

This article was contributed by Future Money Trends. 

National polls will tell you which candidate has more support in general, but in the U.S., each and every citizen does not vote on a national level, but on a state-by-state level. In other words, if one resides in California, they will influence which candidate will win in their state alone.

This might create a situation where the popular vote, which is the candidate who gets the most total votes, does not become president.

John Quincy Adams in 1824, Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876, Benjamin Harrison in 1888, George W. Bush in 2000, and Donald Trump in 2016 all won despite losing in the popular vote.

This system, where each resident can only influence locally, is called the electoral college, and it is only practiced in the United States, even though surveys show that between 60% and 80% of Americans don’t approve of it.

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT THIS WAY OF CHOOSING A POLITICAL LEADER?

  1. This system is based on the number of congressmen that serve in the House of Representatives.

Each state also gets to send two senators to the Senate.

Here’s how this works in real life: in Texas, there are just over 25M residents, so it has 36 congressmen in the House. A state like Vermont is tiny, with less than 650,000 residents, so it has one congressman. The way the electoral college works is Texas gets 36 votes for each congressman and two for its Senators, so it’s worth 38 votes in Tuesday’s elections, compared with Vermont’s 1 congressman + 2 Senators, which gets them 3 votes on Tuesday.

This is just one example. What this does is make it so that each vote is not equal to another due to the number of residents each delegate ends up representing.

Take Oregon, which will vote for Biden. It is worth seven votes. Its population is 4.2M, so it means each delegate is in charge of 600,000 voters (4,200,000 / 7 = 600,000). In other words, every 600,000 people are worth one vote. In red-voting Montana, there are 1.07M residents, which influence three votes, so every 356,000 voters are worth a delegate. This makes their votes more valuable.

  1. Swing states: in areas that are known for changing their minds between Democrats and Republicans, therefore, the two candidates campaign, rally, blow their ad budget, and put in the effort, whereas in states they are comfortably in the lead in or have no prayer of winning, they would not spend a second.

In 2016, in New York, a blue state, 2.8M people voted for Trump, but since Hillary got 4.5M votes, those people’s political opinions got buried.

This system goes back to the early part of the United States when it made more sense, but it seems to be inefficient for the 21st century.

Back to the markets, we can see that as hedge fund manager David Einhorn says, fundamentals have begun mattering since September 2nd because liquidity isn’t enough to move prices higher anymore.

This is a warning sign shouting at us.

Be on the lookout for our special PRESIDENTIAL UPDATE Tuesday AM!

ballots Blue crash democrat Donald Trump Economy elections electoral college Emergency Preparedness experts Forecasting Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden mail in markets Polling Polls red republican selections turnout United States Voting

CONTESTED ELECTIONS: Police Ready For MAYHEM!

This article was contributed by The Wealth Research Group. 

A record turnout of voting is happening around the United States. The ease of mail-in votes is allowing many more people to express their opinions, where they might otherwise just stay home, be indifferent about it, and avoid the crowds.

Let’s go over the current state of affairs:

Democrat leaning states – California (55), Hawaii (4), Oregon (7), Washington State (12), Illinois (20), New Mexico (5), New York (29), Washington D.C. (3), Maryland (10), Delaware (3), New Jersey (14), Connecticut (7), Massachusetts (11), Rhode Island (4), Vermont (3) and Virginia (13). These states are nearly guaranteed to vote for Biden; that’s a collective 200 Electoral College votes.

Republican Leaning States – Oklahoma (7), Utah (6), Idaho (4), Wyoming (3), North Dakota (3), South Dakota (3), Nebraska (5), Louisiana (8), Alabama (9), Mississippi (6), Arkansas (6), Missouri (10), Kentucky (8), West Virginia (5), Tennessee (11), Montana (3), Alaska (3) and Indiana (11). These states are nearly guaranteed to vote for President Trump; that’s a collective 111 Electoral College votes.

SWING STATES: Nevada (6), Arizona (11), Colorado (9), Wisconsin (10), Michigan (16), Florida (29), New Hampshire (4), North Carolina (15), Georgia (16), Iowa (6), Ohio (18), South Carolina (9), Minnesota (10), Kansas (6), Pennsylvania (20), Maine (4) and Texas (38). That’s a collective of 227 Electoral College votes.  

According to the polls, which are NOT to be trusted, Biden has a big lead. They vary from one to another, but most have Joe Biden comfortably in the driver’s seat.

If Biden wins the blue-swinging states, according to the polls, then he would have 279 Electoral College votes, whereas Donald Trump would have 263.

In other words, if Trump wins in either AZ, CO, WI, MI, or NC and is able to secure FL, TX, PA, and MN, he will remain in office.

What do you think will occur?

Monday will be another volatile day, because, as you can see, with everything that’s happening with Joe’s son, things aren’t looking like smooth sailing for the Democrats.

The eerie similarity between today’s market action and the one markets experienced in the Great Depression is quite dramatic, but the Federal Reserve and the world’s governments are reacting quickly and with a massive force of stimulus measures, all based on DEBT – lots and lots of it.

It seems like the tradeoff between debt and stimulus is always towards DEBT.

Can markets suddenly plunge by 40%-60%? Is it possible?

The answer is most likely not, since the crisis that we’ve seen this year did not originate from a financial or economic source.

It’s certainly possible that we’ll have volatility and pretty erratic markets for a while, since there’s an elevated level of uncertainty, specifically when it comes to the pandemic.

When one looks at this third wave of infections sweeping through Europe and the U.S., coupled with the elections, the conclusion is that Covid-19 will probably stay with us for a few years longer than most believe, perhaps permanently.

I’ll leave you with this: since 1928, if the S&P 500 was down for the 3-month period before elections, the reigning party (Republicans, in this case) was defeated. Since August, the index has returned -0.6%, so if you wanted yet another CLOSE CALL, this is as tight as it gets.

Civil War Commodities experts Federal Reserve finances Forecasting illogical behavior Intelwars Jerome Powell Joe Biden Major Event millennials money Navy SEALs Rescue The Fed

STOCKS DEMOLISHED: WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?

This article was contributed by Portfolio Wealth Global. 

Oh man, yesterday proved what happens when there’s uncertainty about a major event, coupled with the CERTAINTY that no Federal Reserve is coming to your aid in the days ahead. This is education for the millennials, who have been trained to expect Daddy Jerome Powell to show up every time they load-up.

There is no BACKUP COMING, no Navy Seals coming to the rescue.

This is it; between now and perhaps the end of the year, price discovery is going to be real. We’re going to see exactly what big money and algorithms think about valuations with nothing to prop up markets.

Panic? YES. Volatility? SURE. Buying opportunities? 100%. Craziness and illogical behavior? EVERYWHERE you look.

This will be one of the most important investment months of your career. By acting responsibly, professionally, and with poise and composure, not with an inability to see positions going up and down like yoyos, one will be able to exploit others’ mental incapability to handle bullets firing above their heads.

For the next few days, the FED is out of the business of putting a floor on stocks; perhaps even more than just a few days…

The major indices are now RED for the month of October.

Famed hedge fund manager David Einhorn, who got his ba**s handed to him for shorting TSLA, is convinced the markets peaked on September 2nd. He believes the bubble is over and cites IPO mania, elevated valuations for the Robinhood app darlings, market concentration (FAANG), options trading volumes being off the charts, and the parabolic charts of some stocks.

On top of that, Rasmussen polled Americans and has issued a VICTORY ALERT for President Trump – what a turnaround.

The same polling company actually found that tens of millions of Americans likely believe that a REAL McCoy Civil War is a possibility.

This chart has a lot to do with how America got here!

The ability to create currency and segregate it so it ends up in the hands of the rich and powerful to decide what to do with it has led to expensive asset prices, record buyback programs, no wage growth, and the worst income gap in history.

Think about the process of currency creation: how dollars are born and get pushed into the banking system where the institution cherishes safety and lends to the big and the wealthy, STARVING the real economy.

I personally bought shares yesterday, according to the watch lists we have previously published, taking nibbles at companies, not whole chunks.

NEVER buy a full allocation right off the bat; one can be fully correct on the potential of the company and COMPLETELY WRONG on the timing. Being flexible with your purchases (being patient about the process) is the tactic of successful investors.

Nothing is “now or never” – NOTHING. There’s always time to think things through.

The odds are fully in your favor; let the game come to you.

As I see it, if Joe Biden wins (despite this huge controversy with Hunter’s compromised dealings with China), between now and January 2021, it’s going to get sickening at times since the world will be paralyzed until Inauguration Day. If Trump wins, I still don’t expect SMOOTH SAILING because I think a contested result is coming either way, but Trump won’t lose a recount if he wins the initial vote.

THIS IS EXCITING.
