With each passing day, I don’t just think, but know November 8th will represent a major inflection point in U.S. – and likely, global – history. At this point, the sham that the Democratic Party’s blatant rig-job – of the media, polls, economic data, and financial markets – is taking on legendary proportions, dwarfing the Karl Rove Republican propaganda machine of the 2000s, and rapidly approaching Goebbels’ Nazi Germany. And no, I’m not being hyperbolic as anyone truly following the horror that is unfolding, knows the current regime is abusing power unlike any in U.S. history; and doing so in such a blatant, in-your-face manner, it’s getting to the point that enough people are realizing it to tip the balance of power. Just in time, as this election – assuming it actually goes forward without being cancelled, challenged, or commandeered – represents America’s last hope for survival as a major political and economic power. And for tens of millions of disenfranchised citizens, the only chance to avoid the fate of countless hundreds of collapsed empires before it, in which the “99%” become mere debt serfs, under the political, economic, and financial control of a handful of “elites.”
Politically speaking, the corruption knows no bounds, with the third Project Veritas video proving Hillary Clinton violated the very laws created in response to the Watergate affair. But that’s “small potatoes” compared to the crimes of the Clinton Foundation and the email server scandal – the latter of which, thanks to WikiLeaks, we now know Obama was aware of from the beginning, despite his vehement protests – or better put, lies – otherwise. Heck, evidence that Hillary Clinton has been peddling legislative promises to campaign donors is now out in the open, too!
And then there’s the DNC’s actual vote rigging – which, care of the first two Project Veritas videos, and countless WikiLeaks, we now know has been occurring for “at least fifty years.” Heck, early voting has already uncovered “Hillary-rigged” machines in Texas, one of nearly a dozen states where a company owned by George Soros himself are being used. To that end, since when are people allowed to vote three weeks in advance of an election? I mean, just how tainted can votes get, with so much time for them to be manipulated? And by the way, that very same George Soros, just yesterday, predicted a “landslide win” for Trump in the popular vote – just as I have – but that a Clinton presidency is a “done deal” due to electoral college, and who knows what other, considerations. I mean, consider the, for lack of a better word, revolution that will occur if that is the case – which is very realistic. And by the way, now that the Billy Bush tape is in the rear window, has anyone noticed how rapidly Trump is rising in the polls – such as Florida, where he is now shown to be ahead?
Yes, fraud and corruption are everywhere – and thanks to the importance of this election, it is now in the wide open for everyone to see. Which, if the parabolic growth in readership and listenership of alternative media websites like the Miles Franklin Blog is any indication, is rapidly becoming a global phenomenon. Finally, people are realizing that what I have spoken of for 15 years – of rigged financial markets, particularly Precious Metals – is true; to the point that, pretty soon, anyone who denies it will be considered a tinfoil hat wearing “anti-conspiracy theorist.”
To that end, the market manipulation we have witnessed in the pre-election buildup is unlike any I’ve ever seen – in Precious Metals’ case, highlighted by October 4th’s “Deutsche Bank Destruction” raid, whilst stock markets have been “protected” despite a relentless stream of “horrible headlines” – in some cases, as in Japan and Switzerland, aided by actual, overt Central bank intervention. Meanwhile, bond markets have been taken to unprecedented levels of overvaluation by equally maniacal Central bank intervention, with trillions of dollars of worthless securities now trading at negative yields. And putting the icing on the manipulation cake, despite the worst global economy in generations, yield suppression has pushed U.S. and Chinese real estate markets, amongst others, to all-time highs; whilst the majority of commodity prices languish, and most currencies trade at or near all-time lows.
In other words, the most unsustainable, and blatantly rigged, financial markets of all time – which again, everyone is starting to realize. Which, I might add, will become even more unsustainable if Hillary Clinton manages to win – given that her unprecedented socialist and warmongering policies will unquestionably cause the economy to contract further, and dramatically so; political instability to explode; and Central bank money printing to increase exponentially. Let alone, if her wish to replace Janet Yellen with “Mr. Atlas Shrugged” himself, Larry Summers, comes true.
To the contrary, what will happen to markets if Trump wins? Readers are well aware of my belief that the shock value alone will produce a “BrExit times ten” dislocation. Which, in a world where commodities, currencies, and trade have already collapsed, would likely catalyze the most terrifying political, economic, and social environment in memory. Moreover, the motivation of said “powers that be” to maintain control – let alone, their ability to do so – will be at least comprised; but more likely, dissolved. In other words, a Trump victory may well prompt the end of the PPT and gold Cartel simultaneously, amidst an environment of market chaos unlike any since 2008. Only this time, Central banks will be powerless to respond, even if they attempt helicopter money, outright stock monetization, and across-the-board negative interest rates.
And before I go, a note on the two biggest “rigging” requirements facing the “powers that be” today – particularly in light of their need to maintain order ahead of the election. The first being OPEC’s proposed “production cut” – or “freeze”; “cap”; or whatever the heck they are calling it; which I have been more vocal than anyone will NOT happen, no matter how much propaganda is thrown at us. You know, like the Fed “rate hikes” that never occur, despite being threatened essentially every day for the past three years.
Anyhow, after yesterday’s definitive news that Russia will not participate, we are at the point where Russia, the U.S., Canada, Iran, Iraq, Venezuela, and Nigeria are officially not participating – whilst essentially all other oil producers are already producing at full capacity. In other words, it’s up to Saudi Arabia solely – which, due to its desperate need for cash, and vehement stance on maintaining market share, is absolutely not going to materially cut production, even if it pretends its normal seasonal slowdown is a “cut.” Moreover, with actual OPEC production turning out to be significantly higher in September than what was discussed at the Algiers meeting, it appears, frankly, impossible for the proposed 32.5-33.0 million barrel per day range to ever be reached. Which is probably why prices are on the verge of breaking below $49/bbl as I write, with a “death price” below $40/bbl looming in the not-too-distant future.
And last but not least, there’s Deutsche Bank – the world’s biggest derivative time bomb, which has been held together by the smoke and mirrors of rumors, lies, and miniscule capital infusions. Tomorrow it reports earnings – ironically, on the five year anniversary of my joining Miles Franklin – and watching them try to squirm through this potentially cataclysmic event will be a joy for all to see; as, per today’s article title, everyone is starting to realize how dire Deutsche Bank’s outlook is, as well as the entire European banking system.
My friends, we are on the cusp of history, focused on the Ground Zero that is November 8th. Frankly, there is no possible scenario I can envision in which chaos is not unleashed – perhaps beforehand, and certainly afterward. And the most dangerous part of all, is that with each passing day, more and more of the world’s 7.5 billion citizens realize they have been cheated, duped, and exploited by the “1%” running their nations, political parties, corporations (see, Wells Fargo), and Central banks – yielding untold wealth at their expense, and a dramatic reduction in our rights and opportunities. In other words, “everything’s rigged, and everyone knows it”; and if you don’t respond by protecting yourselves against what might occur when ”everyone” takes action to rectify these gross imbalances – in financial markets and otherwise – shame on you for not doing so when you still had the chance!
