John Rubino – Election of LePen Means Near Death Coming to the Euro

from Financial Survival Network

John Rubino returns… Marine LePen is going to be elected to head France, at least that’s my prediction, but I’ve been wrong before. But I’ve also been right, i.e. Trump, Brexit and others. This development according to John could lead to a crisis in Europe and elsewhere. Will chaos result? Or will things just continue on as normal? Is it the end for the elites? Or is it just another step?

The Weekly Perspective with David Morgan

from The Morgan Report

Baltic Dry Index over 2016 hit a new low, then picked up and now in 2017 it’s dropping off again. The world’s largest shipping container company is losing money. Not good for world trade. The historic numbers aren’t directly comparable because the ships have gotten so much larger, so capacity has swelled and prices have of course come down. In Australia, private debt has swelled and their real estate market has also gotten too high. In global tensions seem to be increasing. Tensions with Moscow are increasing. Commodities looking at the water crisis coming up in the future. Not sure when, but at some point it will arrive. PM demand is low in US. Germany brings back its Gold early.

John R. Lott – Retirees to Get Gun Rights Back

from Financial Survival Network

Author and renowned economist John R. Lott, Jr. returns… One of the Obama Admin’s last parting shots was an attempt to take away the elderly’s gun rights if they are simply unable to conduct their own financial affairs. If that’s the litmus test for mental disability, then they have a whole lot of company. But now Congress is set to act and repeal this draconian measure under the Congressional Review Act (CRA), which gives them the authority to act on major regulations that are passed by governmental agencies. It can’t come soon enough for those seniors wrongfully denied their Second Amendment rights.

Ivan Eland – Trump is Wrong on the Immigration Ban

from Financial Survival Network

Ivan Eland believes that banning immigration from certain Muslim countries won’t make any of us safer and will only alienate our allies. The executive order was badly drafted and perhaps after revisions Trump will prevail. More importantly, what’s up with ret. General Flynn, Trump and the Russians? Is there really a business connection that makes Trump vulnerable? Flynn is now history, is this the end of it all or is there more to come? And why can’t the FBI and our intelligence agencies stop the attacks even when they know the identity of the future attackers, like they did on 9-11, the Boston Marathon Attack, the Fort Lauderdale Airport Attack, the Orlando Attack and San Bernadino? Why can’t they stop it? Are they unable or unwilling?

Greg Melia – Never to Late to Save

from Financial Survival Network

Greg Melia notes that Americans are deep in the throes of a savings crisis, and the problem seems to be getting worse, not better. In 2015, a survey by GoBankingRates.com revealed that 62% of Americans had yet to amass $1,000 in savings. In 2016, that percentage climbed to 69%. Worse yet, the number of Americans with no savings at all jumped from 28% in 2015 to 34% in 2016. But that’s not all. It’s also estimated that one-third of Americans, many of whom are already in their 50s or older, have no retirement savings, either. And those who are saving aren’t socking away enough.

How Many Euro Crises Will This Make? It’s Getting Hard to Keep Track

by John Rubino
Dollar Collapse

Every few years, it seems, one or another mismanaged eurozone country falls into one or another kind of crisis. This leads to speculation about the end of the common currency, which in turn spooks the global financial markets. Then the ECB conjures another trillion euros out of thin air, buys up and/or guarantees all the offending country’s bonds, and calm returns for a while.

At least, that’s how it’s gone in the past.

The latest crisis has more than the usual number of flash-points and could, therefore, be something new and different. Currently:

There’s a Difference: Fake News and Junk News

by Charles Hugh Smith
Of Two Minds

Media junkies on the tragic path to extinction believe the junk news, non-junkies see through the manipulation.

The mainstream media continues peddling its “fake news” narrative like a desperate pusher whose junkies are dying from his toxic dope. It’s slowly dawning on the media-consuming public that the MSM is the primary purveyor of “fake news”– self-referential narratives that support a blatantly slanted agenda with unsupported accusations and suitably anonymous sources.

Many of these Fake News Narratives are laughably, painfully bogus: that President Trump is a Russian tool, to take a current example. (That President Obama was a tool of the neocon Deep State–no mention of that. According to the MSM, America doesn’t even have a Deep State–har-har…the joke’s on you if you are credulous enough to swallow this risible absurdity.)

Why Did SEC Acting Chair Take an Ax to Enforcement Unit’s Subpoena Power?

by James A. Kidney
Wall Street on Parade

The Trump administration assault on investor protections put in place following the 2007-08 financial crisis continues apace. The war on investors takes place in arenas both large and small.

The large issues get the attention, of course. These include repeal of much of the Dodd-Frank law and regulations of the biggest Wall Street banks, limiting or eliminating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which actually helps individual customers abused by giant financial institutions, and preventing adoption of fiduciary standards for financial professionals recommending securities that line their pockets but are risky to customers.

But Washington is not merely a swamp of self-interest with large, highly visible alligators munching on small fish to satisfy their insatiable greed.

Exploding Reasons to Own Precious Metals – Particularly This Rare Numismatic Opportunity

by Andrew Hoffman
Miles Franklin

As I sit down to write on this “President’s Day,” I can’t help but consider how diluted the stature – and goodness – of the Presidential Office has become. And this has nothing to do with Donald Trump personally, but the fact that essentially everything the post- Financial Crisis government has done has been detrimental to the public, causing the office to lose the admiration – and cache – it had when America was indeed “great.”

Unfortunately, a combination of unfettered global population growth; inexorable industrial competition; “bad trade deals”; unfavorable demographic trends; and abuse of the “reserve currency” has doomed America to fall back to at least the middle of the pack, which in many aspects it already has. However, the largest part of this “plunge to mediocrity” – in which the purchasing power of its historically overvalued fiat toilet paper dramatically declines; yielding a material reduction in an already falling standard of living; is what will really shock the hundreds of millions of dumbed-down Americans that didn’t realize it was coming – yielding political, economic, and social changes unlike any in the nation’s history.

But That Was Unpossible!

by Karl Denninger
Market-Ticker.org

It seems some of the state AGs might be reading my postings…….

But now generic drug executives can expect to face tougher legal repercussions, as evidenced by two federal court lawsuits filed late last year—one in November brought by Eatontown, N.J.-based Heritage Pharmaceuticals Inc. against two of its former executives, Jeffrey Glazer and Jason Malek, using the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), and one in December that 20 states have filed against six companies, including Heritage, after a major antitrust investigation by the state of Connecticut.

Racketeering and Anti-Trust eh? Gee, that’s a good start.

Now go after the hospitals and diagnostic centers and you’ll really make progress.

Let me give you a hint: It takes 30 seconds to find a bill from a hospital that has a 90% discount for a certain “insurance.”

JPMorgan to HSBC Face Fines in South African Rand-Rigging Probe

by Renee Bonorchis and Michael Cohen
Bloomberg.com

South Africa’s antitrust investigators urged that a dozen banks be fined for colluding and manipulating trades in the rand, potentially becoming the latest in a string of penalties handed to lenders around the world for rigging currencies.

The Competition Commission identified lenders including Bank of America Merrill Lynch, HSBC Holdings Plc, BNP Paribas SA, Credit Suisse Group AG, HSBC Holdings Plc, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Nomura Holdings Inc. as among those that participated in price fixing and market allocation in the trading of foreign currency pairs involving the rand since at least 2007. It referred the case to an antitrust tribunal, concluding an investigation that began in 2015.
