My hypocrisy knows no bounds
LOL its all just one perverse, cynical mockery. Virtually everything in our daily existence has become corrupted to such an extent, that anyone with a pulse and half a brain cell is starting to see something is wrong with the system. We have an alarming number of major investors that were formally touting a bull market now turning bearish with warnings that the next downturn will be worse than 2008 because we "fixed" that debt crisis with even more debt.

Predictions from them on the timing of this day of reckoning remain muted. Anyone that made timing predictions has been crushed by the money printing machine. My Kress cycle was left in the dust 3 years ago lol. That seems like a century ago, but the upside is it bought me time. Time is what they were trying to buy too. They've lined their pockets and kept the pockets of their bankers and the top executives of their system were well rewarded... for now.  Meanwhile the fly over America is wallowing in swill by comparison. I just returned from a week in Manhattan and last week in Silicon Valley (family biz) and I will report there is no recession thanks to the money printing. Malinvestment always comes with a price.

You can look at the ponzi manipulation of this recovery several ways. Some view this "recovery" as a validation the cartel is just "too powerful" and the "good times" will just keep on going for the ponzi. So you have the "retail capitulation" and lets "join um if we can't beat um" attitude. In my view this is classic retail herd behavior at the top of any "bull market". It took a long time to get to this stage after their slaughter of the innocents in 2008 lol.

JPM Is Worried That Trump Is Getting So Cocky, He Is About To Make A "Major Miscalculation"'ll bet you are..

My view is that timing was always something that could be wrong but my view of the underlying premise that another bubble being created by debt would end just the way all previous bubbles ended did not change. I used the extra time they created to prepare. I used the extra time they created to strengthen mentally and physically. I used the extra time they created compartmentalize my young family and try and determine the best ways to deal with how they reset the system. Time was always going to be the most precious commodity and getting caught in a protracted Twilight Zone Groundhog Day High Density Killing Field was not something I was going to let them do to me lol.

So they gave me a few years of precious time. Normalcy bias can be enjoying your family, or some good tunes, or a nice day drive or a nice vacation, maybe a pole in a clear stream, or just a quiet conversation with your loved ones. They gave you the time. They did screw you and your loved ones in the longer run. They did kill a few million people during this time. They will kill a lot more during the next ten years more than likely. You can't stop that, nor can I. Rest assured there is a day of reckoning coming for this evil.  If you are reading this, then you are aware. Being aware is your free will. gl

I'm going to approach this issue briefly, but make no mistake it IS THE limiting factor for the ponzi. Of course there are other black, gray, and pink swans out there, but if you choose NOT to be of the CONspiracy ilk and do NOT want to dive into the rabbit hole, then understand that INFLATION is the limiting factor for your pollyanna world that your master has created for you.

Virtually any reasonable statistician can peel this onion apart and come up with simple examples of significant inflation occurring in many segments of the so-called economy. Yet we are told we have less than 2.4% inflation. Look at the prices of your food and drinks. Look at your rents and housing costs. Look at wage pressures occurring now. Look at oil. They are working overdrive in the futures market and dollar exchange to CONtrol the prices of the vital commodity markets including the headline PM prices. Its always been there CONtrol panel for prices.

Bottom line is we are in a ZOMBIE economy as a result of the "economic crisis" of 2008. We are on a credit card spending spree as the music plays on the deck of the Titanic to create the illusion we are "all good". I can compartmentalize this reality and play in this paradigm. Reconciling these "realities" is necessary if you're going to maintain your sanity.

Mo, Shimp, and Curly saved you 10 years ago and these guys are heroes?

I've posted this price paradigm disaster looming for the ponzi and want you to understand that much of what we see daily is centered around maintaining this illusion of stability and recovery. Silver and gold are forward looking "warning" signs. They are first on the list to be controlled. The Dollar is joined at the hip with gold since it represents the mechanism used to propel the system forward. Wage pressures from underlying "true" inflation in our daily necessities will be the spring board for the breakdown in the dollar. 

"I Thought He Might Inadvertently Kill Me" - Kavanaugh Accuser Breaks ya did....

What's the timeline? I invested heavily during the last 10 years in the PM and miner trade wondering the same thing. How long can they do it? How long can they carry and illusion of recovery in a centrally controlled market economy? I thought the K wave was a tell. It wasn't. I learned many years ago that being right doesn't mean you can stay solvent so I never leveraged.  I did learn if you researched your trade that time always had a way of proving you right. Trading this market shorter term is laughable. The pros I know in NY are disgusted by the hedge fund damage from the debt paradigm, even though this is what enabled their survival. 

So back to the topic of the day. Inflation. Its coming. Its coming with a vengeance. Maybe not overnight, but you can already see it. China, Russia and others are in the "long trade" that I'll follow and that's accumulation of metal. They know its a tictoc and they know how the movie end looks. Biblical debt paradigm shifts are not gentle transformations. They involve major cultural shifts and extreme human suffering and death.

Your world may be safe. Your lights are on in your house and your utility bills are bearable. Your grocery store is fully stocked and your checkout bill is creeping up but stable so far. Your gas station still has sub 3 dollar gas and plenty of it. Your world has no F18 daily fly overs or drone strikes on "terrorist targets". Your world does not have dozens of its finest cities lying in rubble with its citizens scattered around the world. Its all good in your world.

Now open your eyes for a moment. Don't let the hypnotic, daily Bloomberg/CNBS put you into a trance.  Countries are either beginning their collapse or are already in a state of collapse. Spreads on Italian bonds are blowing out. Greece received its last payment from the ECB to keep it from complete default. Much of the Middle east is in ruins. Syria is a landscape of death along with Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Yemen.  Turkey and Iran are staring at the barrel of the Banker's gun, and wondering just how long it will be before the collapse begins.

Philippine Central Bank Weighs Action With Inflation at 6.4%

South Africa Unexpectedly Slides Into Recession For The First Time Since 2009....another one bites the dust...its all good

Pentagon's Answer To Yemen Atrocities? Train More Saudi Pilots... On US sense to me......

Across the pond Argentina and Venezuela are in different stages of collapse. Border breakdowns will draw other countries in that region into the cauldron of fire. Prostitution in these countries is becoming a survival mechanism for previously middle class women. But its okay for our daughters growing up in the safety of 240 Trillion in debt. It won't happen here.

Four hundred arrests in Pennsylvania alone last week for child sex crimes. The Vatican under enormous exposure for its sex crime involvement.  Yet the Trump crime of Russia collusion runs virtually non stop on the major networks with the Banker's lawyers in charge of the investigation tirelessly working to find the "truth".

We're threatening war now with two superpowers....Russia and China, while making daily threats and economic sanctions. Two Superpowers. Nuclear superpowers. China is also an economic superpower. We're openly castigating their leaders with verbal insults. But its all going to be fine.

Ignore the rubble across the many landscapes we've already destroyed. Ignore the failed coups we attempted or completed in countries like Turkey, Tunisia, Egypt, Venezuela, Brazil, Iran, Syria, etc etc. Perhaps YOU can ignore them, but a lot of other leaders and nations cannot. Its NOT all good and a reckoning is coming for US. Play dumb. Compartmentalize the chaos. Heaven knows I do.........but gl if you haven't made your preps.

I know what it feels like, and it feels so bad I don't want to even open up my brokerage accounts to look....but I do....I don't want to look at charts...but I do.... One thing I do when it gets like this is buy physical metal and I did. I even spent extra time visiting with my local coin dealer and licking my wounds and comparing notes. No one was in buying so it was easy. She doesn't have a big business and I was her only buyer in her place of business everyday that I bought and I bought five times over the past five weeks. 

Trudeau Government To Study Total Handgun And Assault Weapons Ban

Charles Nenner Flips! GOLD Is Headed MUCH LOWER (Spoiler Alert: Price Could Crash To $850)....NOW ya tell me

My last visit was entertaining and we got into Buffett stories. She used to work for him in Omaha and was a good friend of his current wife. Let's just say that Warren is basically what you see is what you get. He is a complete nerd. His current wife was actually hired by his first wife years ago when she decided she had enough of living with dopey in Omaha and went to California to party with more lively company. She felt sorry for dopey and found this lady through my friend to live with him and take care of the house and Warren. Her choice was a woman of simple means and needs and she and Warren grew to love each other in only a way Warren can 

Fred Hickey of the High Tech Strategist had this to say about the state of the gold market today and what it will take to achieve liftoff:  “If one looks back at the early 2016 gold short squeeze (& I have) these same types of battles occurred in first couple of weeks before shorts were overrun (and then the gold rally really got going). But before that – it was two steps forward & one step back type-battles with shorts.” buttfox and everyone else can take the other side......

I've never read any bios on dopey but this information might be in them but it was news for me. Warren and his first wife never divorced because of the money it would have cost. She didn't go into the details but the first wife wasn't too greedy and chose the Cali life and freedom from dopey and was very happy with whatever allowance she Anyway...eventually Warren married the live in and now current wife after his first wife died and she remains a very frugal, simple woman with her total loyalty to Warren.  

So at least I learned something during this last slaughter from buying PMs at my local shop. Lottsa Warren stories to come of course so lets enjoy this next move up......hope this painful butt pasting sets us up for a big one this fall........or maybe buttfox will be gracing us more often with his words of wisdom.....waaaaaaa.

This blog was originally intended to be a forum where a community of people that went through the 2008 collapse could gather and find refuge following the mental trauma of the economic collapse. 

At the time the blog began times were very uncertain and imminent financial collapse seemed very possible. We had worldwide fires like Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Ireland, Spain etc erupting virtually almost monthly. There were government upheavals and riots in the streets centering around the economic chaos. We had Occupy Wallstreet and tent cities on our own turf.

Historic Capitulation As Bullion Banks Tighten Noose Around Hedge Funds & Speculators In The Gold Market...i can't take it n'more ....i give......waaaaaaa

Musk Admits He Saw Azealia Banks, Unclear If He Was Tweeting On Acid...oh acid??....can you say malinvestment lol

We created a wealth effect in our stock market through a well coordinated global algorithmic control model that does not allow for the bull market "recovery" to slip from the media driven normalcy bias. Our bankrupt pension systems continue to write the monthly checks to their recipents.

Gold Investors 'Give Up Hope' as Biggest Short in History Builds....on bloomberg scroll headlines today

Venezuela In Chaos After Maduro Announces Massive 95% Devaluation, New FX Rate Tied To Cryptocurrency.....its all good....not gonna happen here....

It has been thoroughly documented here and in numerous sites how these issues were fixed (papered over) and how a "normalcy bias" was ingrained into the psyche of the masses. There were literally millions of jobs created with the massive flow of liquidity into the ruptured system. These jobs may be building electric cars that lose their builder billions every quarter and have no hope of ever being a viable company. These jobs may be employing millions of IT and regulatory people within a failed healthcare system. You get the picture. 

The point is, the charade of "recovery" has indeed worked for a significant portion of our population in spite of its failings. Now we have an economy of malinvestment. We have propped up companies with propped up consumers buying products with propped up credit. There is no future in this economy for a sustainable base to build upon. The can has been kicked and now 
you have your recovery. 

Cohen Willing To Tell Mueller About Trump's "Conspiracy To Collude" With Russia....finally the truth comes out lol

So whether you agree with this very brief overview or not is not the point of this blog or more specifically this post today. The point is you have a place to gather still and voice your point of view in the comment section, which is the real reason this blog is still written. I'm not a brave person and I know some of the material pokes the bear so I have been carefully trying to temper my headlines and keeping under the radar through "other" traffic  I fully intend to keep my own investment theme unaltered and some of you may disagree and that is obviously just fine. 

Finally I want all of you to understand that as much as I may agree their "normalcy bias" has ABSOLUTELY least for many has wrecked any future of a sustained economic benefit for THIS country. These "faux" jobs created by fiat will end the same way they were created. gl and thanks for hangin' out.
