PONZI PUMPERS

Are you a Ponzi Pumper? Do you believe that we're in a sustainable recovery and that printing trillions of Benny Bucks is a real solution to the real problems facing the economy? Then you're a Ponzi Pumper. Do you believe that Japan can print Trillions of Yen and cure their economy? You're a Ponzi Pumper. Do you believe that Draghi can print Trillions of Eurobux and rid the EU of their economic woes? You do? Then you're a Ponzi Pumper.

Do you really understand what a Ponzi Pumper is? I'll try to explain in my simplistic way. It means that you think that demographically challenged developed nations can keep on printing endless amounts of paper fiat for precious resources from developing nations and they'll just keep on taking these IOUs or we'll invade them. Seems simple enough. You play ball or we'll crush you like bugs. You see how it works. Its really not to complicated and it can just go on forever, at least it seems that way while its going.

The problem is history is replete with a long list of these Ponzies. They all end. They go back thousands of years and the end is always the same. One day CONfidence in the Ponzi suddenly just collapses. Sure there are some variations to the theme but century after century has its own Ponzi Pumper Puncture, and once that air starts to leave the balloon the door closes down fast on the Ponzi Pumpers.  You say that sounds far fetched in this digital day and age with the most powerful empire in history. Just remember what is keeping this balloon afloat. Its all CONfidence. Its the air that keeps this game afloat. Once its punctured the balloon comes down. Pump it Ponzi Pumpers......because if you're a Ponzi Pumper, you need to be pumping extra hard right now. gl

COGNITIVE DISSONANCE

Did you ever stop and consider just how completely upside down the world has become. Whether you are a righty or a lefty, surely you know what I'm talking about. Consider that our current President was a "community organizer" before he went into politics. Once in the Senate he made numerous speeches against the banking monopoly and the incursions in the Middle East. Now that he's president, he promotes the surveillance state and the military incursions around the world. 

Just think about our two recent Secretary of states. Hillary and Lurch. Everyone knows that Lurch was a protester against the Vietnam debacle after winning his awards for bravery. Hillary was solidly fighting the military industrial complex until she began her illustrious career. Now you can't find a bigger democrat chickenhawk that Billary. My neighbor is a huge fat cat Repulican and told me last year, he could vote for Billary. 

What is it with that top level of politicians. They all seem to become victims of brainwashing once the attain that level. Does someone sit them down and explain how the system works and says you can join us or you can have your brains splattered on the asphalt of some shitty Dallas street. I would like to think they had to be threatened, but most likely most succumb to the allure of riches waved under their pitted nose.

You're welcome to explain this conflict anyway you wish, but no one (except buttfox) can argue that with the implementation of the Patriot Act and the NDAA and the current surveillance state, the freedoms we once enjoyed are long gone in the rear view mirror. 

I hope all of you can separate yourselves from these realities and enjoy the holidays coming up. I live in two worlds. The world of reality and the world of illusion. I know the difference, and I know most of you do the same. Don't feel isolated, a lot of Americans are starting to wake up. Maybe not in time, but maybe, just maybe we get through all of this bruised and beaten but intact. Best wishes to all of you. gl

THE NEW NORMAL

Don't worry, be happy. Play the market on the long side. After all, the Fed has your back. Hey, its la la land. Forget that little thing called debt. We can just have a few more trillion printed up for you so you can keep playin' that market. That's what this game is about. Its about YOU makin' MONEY! So sit back and relax. We'll let you know when we stop the game. That's when you can take all of your winnings and you can put them........well.....you can put them into something that's an even better investment. If you don't believe it because it sounds too good to be true, just look at your stock portfolio. Its up to all time record highs. How can we be wrong? 

Of course some of you may be nervous with Japan's Abe printing at a rate that has increased their debt to 350% of their GDP, but there is even a bright side to that problem......we've got him buying our stocks with his newly printed Yen. WHAT could go wrong? We are in a "recovery" and we've got the Japanese printing money and buying our stocks. Funny how that happened right as we've supposedly quit printing new FRN's.

Okay so maybe that does bother you a little. After all how long can the Japanese last? Not to worry. Our European brothers are lining up to print. The Jawboning across the pond is getting into position to pick up the baton when Japan stumbles. So......again, relax. Sit back and just watch those stocks grow. Invest in the most speculative sectors you can and just hold on.  Speculation's not your cup of tea? Then buy stable, dividend paying stocks. After all, anyone knows that works through ANY kind of market.

Nope, the world is all good.....its all good. You're a sucker for not getting into this stock market. Don't invest in gold. Remember when Ben was asked if gold was money by that crazy Ron Paul...and he said no. Now the Maestro is saying we're going to have a day of reckoning and you had better own gold and silver because they are the only real money. Strange contradiction there. I just don't understand. Someone is lying, yet they are both Ex Fed Chairs. 

Oh well I'm sleeping just fine. Furthermore I really don't have a clue when the music stops, but the Maestro said its going to and that HAS to be the truth.  Just look at the past 100 years... they don't lie.

GOLD'S LAST STAND

Its over for the gold bugs. Since the latest smackdown by the Cartel, only the true believers stand on the walls ready to defend sound money and free markets. Of course we all know what happened in that picture above. 

Did anyone happen to notice that virtually every hour CNBS was on last week they had at least one spot that had some hack for the cartel disparaging gold with a smirk on his face. What you didn't see was anyone bringing up that for the past three years that the paper gold price is ONLY hit with thousands of future's contracts being traded in three minutes in the after hours thinly traded periods. Usually at the end of regular Asia trading and before New York opens. Convenient isn't it. 

Now we have confessions of guilt on major bullion banks of gold and silver price manipulation. I would imagine there will be little mention of this on CNBS. For that matter you may not hear Martin Armstrong or Dan Norcini mention it. 

Now here is the issue for you. So what? Who cares? If you've followed this with a median IQ and an open mind, you should have already known this. I'll bet there are people reading this right now that still don't understand that you cannot manipulate a market like this INDEFINITELY that hold LIMITED amounts of actual metal. The Cartel knows this but they don't want you to know it and that is why you are bombarded by self-appointed gold experts telling you on MSM that gold is a barbarous relic. Its called flushing out the weak hands and it works. It has always worked. There'll be a change and when it happens much of the Cartel will have reversed their trade and most likely are already in position on the long side. GL in the game.

HISTORY OF FIAT

As we approach the end of the Supercycle deflationary collapse the Central Banks are printing at an exponential rate with Japan now leading the Bankers in an effort to crawl out of a 20 year deflationary collapse. With most of the developed world facing staggering demographic and structural hurdles, the old method they know of printing more fiat will move into an entirely new level to maintain the Western Banking control. 

We have no bread lines. We have EBT cards. We have no homeless visible because we are still propping up the housing markets and individuals with various forms of fiat through unemployment, vouchers, and back door housing bailouts. We don't have to sell cars we can buy them with nothing down and zero interest with terrible credit ratings. We have no unemployment with the new metrics that have been instituted since the last downturn in the 70's. We have high paying jobs replaced with part-time, lower paying jobs, that require people to works three jobs to just keep their heads above water.

Elections will take place today and virtually every candidate that runs has been vetted by the system. If they don't conform after they are in office, then they soon will. There are no memos for the newly elected. There are only visits. Visits that are not in the public light, but they are visits that determine the destiny of every man, woman, and child in the country.

Remember the last time we had an Independent that ran for President. Ross Perot was his name and about 5 months before the election he pulled even with 33% in the polls. Two days later, visibly shaken, he suddenly announces he is pulling out because his family was threatened. He was very obtuse with the details, and they have never been clearly explained. The media attributed it to Republican dirty tricks. You can believe that if you wish. He did eventually run but was ridiculed by the press for dropping out. He didn't stand a chance. No third party will ever be allowed. gl

CONFIDENCE: ITS THE ONLY THING LEFT

That is why we are being drilled on the MSM everyday with altered statistics showing a "recovery". That is why every piece of data has to be polished and displayed as positive. Its an illusion. Over 90 million Americans of working age either cannot find jobs or have quit looking or prefer to be welfare recipients. Wages for those working remain stagnant as essentials continue to rage higher. Prices for bread, milk, meat etc have doubled or tripled over the past 6 years and wages have flat-lined. According to CNN Money 76% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck with virtually no savings. Yet, the consumer CONfidence numbers are holding near highs. How is that possible?

Even the daily sugar-coaters on CNBS and Bloomberg are becoming increasingly uncomfortable at times with the data releases. More often now you see a look of bewilderment as some data that is absolutely abysmal is countered with data that shows virtually the opposite in some other sector. Housing continues to slide into the abyss. Interest rates remain near zero, but you are told we are in a steady recovery. Really?? Then why is the Eurozone collapsing and implementing QE. Then why is Japan not only implementing overwhelming QE, but now buying U.S. equity securities. WHY?

We are told by a multitude of sources INCLUDING Fed speakers that we and the world have a fundamental structural problem that monetary policy is very limited on fixing ie. massive debt, demographics, tax structures and on and on. They TELL you that monetary policy cannot fix the real issues, but they continue to prop up the state's debt, knowing it will collapse eventually. Everyone knows its coming. They just don't know when.

What's holding it up? CONfidence. Its magic. Its everything. It has to be preserved. Its the only thing that backs the Dollar reserve status and every other fiat currency. At this time virtually all fiat currencies are in a war between themselves to DEFLATE. Its the war going on that really is keeping the Dollar as the reserve currency, when in fact the dollar has more debt than all other major fiat currencies.

The real game to continue the CONfidence illusion is to suppress gold. That means wars and disruptions to obtain physical bullion. Countries like Ukraine, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia all had physical gold confiscated by "someone". Why is that so important? Especially if gold is a relic. Why did Germany receive only 5 Tons of their gold back? Why has China India and Russia accumulated (on record) over 3000 tons of gold over the last year, yet the price has moved down. Why was there heavy physical buying from a European entity during the last two weeks at these bargain prices if gold is so barbarous? Why was 500 tons of paper gold sold in the LBMA at 7am London time in less than 3 minutes on Friday?

Understand WHO benefits from the price suppression and you will realize WHY it is so easily done. The West benefits because it maintains the Dollar reserve status and allows maximum printing to fortify Bank reserves and allow accumulation of hard assets and stock equity prices. This maintains the system as it is simultaneously buried under a mountain of debt. The East loves it because they are allowed to accumulate gold from the West at bargain prices as they prepare to step into their role as an important currency alternative that is gold backed. They have patience that is being handsomely rewarded. 

As long as CONfidence is maintained in the dollar, we can print. You can pick the timing but like most Ponzi's no one knows exactly when they fall, but when they do, its dramatic and quickly. Enjoy the game. People will not make it through this one to the other side. gl

THE FINAL DANCE

When does the music end for the greatest dance in history. Its been over 80 years now for the culmination of the greatest ponzi in history. The ultimate banking masterminds of the World are moving chess pieces daily and sometimes multiple times within the daily news cycle. Why is this necessary? We have a "sustained economical growth" don't we? That's why we are stopping QE isn't it? Then why are virtually all of the Western Central banks either starting or talking about starting their own QE. Why are there still Zero Interest rates in all of the Western Banking Cartel nations? After all doesn't an economy that's growing so healthy deserve a "normalized" interest rate? Why even the most ardent of propagandist on CNBS and Bloomberg laugh periodically when discussing the subject of the Fed intervention on QE and ZIRP. Of course they quickly fall back into their propagandist hyperbole, but they cannot even conceal the bizzarro world of Fed CONtrol of the all important CONfidence. 

How can this level of manipulation persists without a major stumble occurring that sends the entire pyramid into a collapse mode? Well, it helps to have complete control of the MSM and its ultimate propaganda value. So what is the threat to this pseudo-capitalism? One threat that exists is another currency to challenge the Dollar's reserve currency status. Maybe it will be China or Russia or a combination of BRICS.  Or maybe its going to be even more simple. Maybe it will true money that ultimately rings the warning bell. You know what real money is and its obviously a much bigger threat to the manipulation than even I realized until the last couple of years. They can't let Gold and Silver break out. Its just not going to happen without a pitched battle to the end. The reason is simple. If Gold and silver break out then the move out of these fiat currencies into real assets and gold and silver will occur at an exponential pace that will not be contained. The stock bubble is now at nosebleed level and the money that is in is getting very anxious and looking for the first hint the music at the big dance may stop. 

There aren't many chairs out there when the music stops and the sucking sound will be deafening as market participant scramble for safety. All ponzies end. They collapse and they will collapse in free fall. What tips it? You'll only know in retrospect. Extend and pretend may work for what seems like an eternity, but it is finite and when that pendulum swings back make sure you aren't in its path. gl

EBOLA UPDATE

All is good. Well now isn't that just perfect. Medical Doctor goes to Africa.. Medical Doctor comes home and parties all over Manhattan. Medical Doctor is stricken with Ebola. All is good. We have the greatest healthcare system in the world and everyone knows it almost impossible to catch Ebola. After all.... that's what ALL of the talking heads on MSM tell you in unison. Even though they continue to ignore the elephant in the room as the evidence mounts its NOT that hard to catch. 

So where are we now? Is this the great pandemic that will herald the end of the world as we know it? Is this the cleaning that Nature has promised us for our excesses? Somehow I just don't see this in the crystal ball yet.  I see potential danger but this doctor is most likely not going to be the Typhoid Mary of Ebola just as Duncan wasn't in Texas. Could his disease spread to some of the healthcare workers dealing with him? That is possible just as it was in Texas, but again I suspect they will be better prepared in New York. We will see. 

Still no reason to panic but it is fascinating to watch the spin on this. The talking points remain stubbornly fixed on keeping the flow of potential Ebola cases from West Africa flowing into our Airports. Very strange. At least New York, Illinois, and New Jersey Governors employed a quarantine on Medical Workers returning. That's a start, but it ignores all of the West African National fleeing from the pandemic.

Will be very tied up in a major hospital for a couple of days and will get more information this week. The market is very unstable now and they need a lot of blood in the streets to bring in QE 5 so IF is not the issue but WHEN is.  Hope all is well for you and don't panic....YET.

IS IT REAL?

Or is it surREAL? I don't know. Maybe its both. Think about it. Can you wrap your brain around it? If you can't then don't feel alone. Most people that are awake enough to look into all of the daily machinations are reaching the point of cognitive over-saturation. Some people can deal with it through allowing cognitive dissonance to take over. Others will consciously resign themselves to just recognizing they can't do anything about it and accept their impotence and just say I will only address what I as an insignificant peep can question. You understand don't you? You are just so much chaff, to be discarded like the waste you are. 

I can accept that, but I think what made me question just how far we are lost down the cognitive dissonance rabbit hole was when a friend of mine that I play golf with regularly and is quite aware and agrees with 99% of what is wrong with the system made my jaw drop today. I mentioned on the previous post just how rigged the Company stock prices were through a variety of measures not to mention the Fed's purchasing of SnP futures etc. and how the financial engineering was performed. None of this is really a true secret if you do your own search. What started my journey into the surreal was when I explained to him today that companies had purchased almost ONE TRILLION in share repurchases since early 2013 to keep their earnings per share appearing to grow and thereby elevating their stock prices. He then asked me if the Fed was doing it and I explained only indirectly by their QE giving the major banks the money to loan to the companies to buy their shares back. 

That's where I lost him. He exclaimed thank god, I thought the Fed was secretly buying the shares and implied that the companies doing this instead of the Fed directly was somewhat of a relief to him. He saw I appeared dumbfounded and tried to backtrack saying "you know what I mean". But really I didn't.  If he can't understand there is essentially no difference between either premise then the average Joe has no chance. They just will be hammered into mud. You will just have to decide yourself and make your own contributions to life. Go out and buy a Tesla S and make a million, its the "Amerikan way". But one thing it is not....and that is it is NOT Free Market Capitalism. GL all

SOMETHING BIG IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN

And somebody is about to get squeezed.  Will it be the all the shorts that jumped on the fear last week in the equity market? Will it be the Longs in the equity market that bought "protection" for their positions? Will it be the bond market or dollar shorts? Which side of the boat is loaded for the sharks to feed on when they tip it? Maybe it will be the dip buyers in the equity markets that get their faces ripped of. After all, that is another meme that may have been loaded up on Friday. Easy pickin's.

Paper markets are treacherous for money managers and retail investors in the BEAR of all bears. Oh wait, this is a secular bull market and you're not dealing with reality. Never mind we just had a GREAT jobs number with 200K+ new jobs (never mind most were part time and low wage) AND we had only 300K+ LEAVING the job market. Its all good.  Please disregard also the retail store numbers falling off a cliff. Please disregard the housing numbers showing real estate rolling over. Its all good. Please disregard that bonds are in record low yields in a "solid" economy. Please disregard that Europe is now rolling over into a "recession" .....again. Please disregard Greek yields blew up. Don't forget Goldman's GDP growth calls this year and now guess what.....they're takin' um down.......only by 50% for this year. Its all good. 

Now let's not waste anymore time on rehashing stats that none of you care about. Let's talk metals. You're doomed. Sell your physical metals and buy Stawks. Stawks are where its at. The Buttfoxes of the world have been proven correct as Central Banks and Governments buy Stawks by the hundreds of billions to put a smile on their game. You don't buy that do you? Why? Because you watch CNBS and they said that's not happening. Maybe you're right. But consider this. The Federal Reserve has said they intend to "raise rates" because the "economy" is doing so well as recently as a few weeks ago. They've said they are going to stop buying bonds and big bank derivatives...er....assets. You know......counterfeiting.....they're gonna stop it because our economy is "back on track". Funny thing happens however. The market dumps for a few days and SUDDENLY they are back on track jawboning they may hold interest rates down and maybe even bringing back QE. So you see, its not the economy....its the headline price of the "market" that dictates Fed policy.

Now we come full circle to the "other" headline price. That's metals. Gold and Silver. The bane of fiat counterfeiters. The bane of the control freaks that are engineering global control and policy. 

Something big is about to happen. When? Maybe little Harvey Organ WAS onto something when he was looking at the December Open interest on Silver. Its huge. 500million + standing for delivery would be impossible for the COMEX to fill. "Houston We Have a Problem". Maybe Harvey's December prediction of  collapse of the Comex is already set up. Harvey is a pain in the ass to this game. He is like a dog that has a bone. He began predicting this December crash a few weeks ago and hasn't let up. His blog is read by a lot of people including big players in this market. A court order stopping his blog is highly unusual. Maybe crazy Harv' was onto something. Please take note.

IF they take the price down during the next few weeks and the COMEX is crashed then they'll settle in cash at a "much reduced" price of the metal. What happens after that should be dramatic. I still maintain the Banks are on the long side too. 

As far as Ebola goes. Watch this week. IF no new cases are reported then we are probably out of the woods in Dallas. GL all.
