Ron Paul: The Last FED Chairman Ever? The End of the Corrupt Federal Reserve

Jerome Powell may seem to be assuming the Fed chairmanship at a time of increasing prosperity and renewed respect for the Fed. However, the prosperity is an illusion built on a series of Fed-created bubbles.
Will an audit of the FED, ordered by President Trump end the corrupt Federal Reserve forever?

Donald Trump is Teaching Republicans How to Fight Back Against the Establishment

It’s an observation so strikingly true that you wonder why you didn’t think of it earlier. “Donald Trump,” a friend said the other day, “is teaching the Republican Party how to fight and how to win.”

The evidence is everywhere everyday, and it was on vivid display Tuesday night. The president remains in a fighting mood, determined to keep punching his way forward.

The Trump way starts with the passage of the historic tax cuts despite tiny Republican majorities in congress and scare tactics from the left. Before passage, polls showed the public was strongly opposed — but Trump pulled, pushed and bullied his party over the finish line.

The roaring results, with millions of workers already getting bonuses, pension boosts and pay hikes, vindicate his determination.

Another piece of evidence is that the government shutdown over the “dreamers” was a huge defeat for Democrats, and Trump piled on the pain with a blistering ad about crimes by illegal immigrants that helped force divided Dems back to work.

The decision by the House intelligence panel to write and release its memo on possible FBI misdeeds is yet more evidence of a new fighting spirit. Even Speaker Paul Ryan, averse to conflict by temperament and training, forcefully supported the memo’s release, saying it was time to “cleanse” the FBI.

This is not George Bush’s or John Boehner’s Republican Party. This is Trump’s GOP, as he demonstrated in spades in his first formal State of the Union address.

For days, the White House advertised his speech as one where a kinder, gentler Trump would reach across the aisle and invite opponents to work with him on bipartisan programs to fix our broken immigration system and our crumbling infrastructure.

After all, that’s what Republicans usually do — soften their tone and, badgered by a liberal Washington press corps, give in to big government ideas.

While Trump did indeed deliver on those promises, it was just barely. Those offers were exceptions in an otherwise damn-the Democrats, full-speed ahead performance.

If this was Trump reaching out his hand, he was doing it from a position of strength and supreme confidence. If there is to be compromise, Dems will have pay dearly for it.

That the president intends to drive a hard bargain was made clear during his remarks on immigration when he said pointedly, “Americans are dreamers, too.”

The tough tone, leavened only by the moving stories of first responders, military heroes and other noteworthy guests seated near the First Lady, suggests that Trump is sticking with what got him to the dance in the first place.

He will continue to be who he is.

The idea that he should be someone else has been a constant refrain from the day he entered the race in 2015. Occasionally he has, but only temporarily, and if last night means anything, it’s that he sees no reason to make radical changes now.

The tax reform and the early signs that it will pay big dividends in economic growth and higher wages give the president a strong wind at his back. He rightly touted the exuberance as “our New American Moment” and declared that “there has never been a better time to start living the American dream.”

On one hand, that approach is a high-risk gamble. Trump is putting all his chips, and his party’s, on the belief that his accomplishments will win over enough voters so the GOP can keep both houses of congress.

Indeed, some polls are already reflecting movement in his direction. A Fox News poll this week shows his approval rating climbing to 45 percent, and his disapproval at 53, although other polls still show him with approval under 40 percent.

The risk is that if he’s wrong, and the midterms are a referendum on him instead of his policies, then the House could flip to Democrats, many of whom want to draw up impeachment articles on Day One. And with special counsel Robert Mueller still on the prowl, the risk is multiplied.

Yet, in truth, America also saw evidence last night that Trump’s bet may be his best chance. The Dems who came to hear the president looked like the unhappiest people on Earth.

They rarely stood and applauded, except when it would have been embarrassing not to. Even when the president touted the lowest African-American unemployment in history, the party that produced the first black president and has on the lock on the black vote gave a collective scowl.

Dems, then, are giving Trump no reason to believe they’re ready to bargain. All of them in both houses voted against tax cuts, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi even demeaned bonuses and pay hikes as “crumbs.”

The party is still stuck in resistance mode, with congressional members following the radical left like so many lemmings.

Against that backdrop, Trump has nobody on the other side to ­negotiate with. For now at least, full speed ahead is both his best and only option.

Pelosi Freaks Out in Response to GOP Voting to Release Memo Showing FBI Corruption

It is being reported that the Democratic party is entering into a full blown panic mode, upon hearing the news that the FISA memo will indeed be released to the America public, exposing the Obama administrations blatant abuse of power, during the 2016 election cycle.

The level of corruption is apparently so deep and vast, that it is being reported that it will make Watergate look like a drop in the bucket.

Heads are already starting to roll and more are yet to come. As can be seen from the above video, Nancy Pelosi is visibly shaken and worried. The greatest routing in political history is about to unfold.

More Heads to Roll: FBI Director Wray "Shocked To His Core" By FISA Memo

FBI Director Christopher Wray was allegedly "shocked to his core" after viewing the four-page FISA memo Sunday night - hours before asking Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe to step down, according to journalist Sara Carter. 

Hannity sat down once again with journalist Sara Carter, whose sources say McCabe may have instructed FBI agents to alter their "302" forms - the paperwork an agent files after interviewing someone:

Carter: What we know tonight is that FBI Director Christopher Wray went Sunday and reviewed the four-page FISA memo. The very next day, Andrew McCabe was asked to resign. Remember Sean, he was planning on resigning in March - that already came out in December. This time they asked him to go right away. You're not coming into the office. I've heard rep[orts he didn't even come in for the morning meeting - that he didn't show up.

Hannity: A source of mine told me tonight that when Wray read this, it shocked him to his core.

Sara Carter: Shocked him to his core, and not only that, the Inspector General's report - I have been told tonight by a number of sources, there's indicators right now that McCabe may have asked FBI agents to actually change their 302's - those are their interviews with witnesses. So basically every time an FBI agent interviews a witness, they have to go back and file a report.

Hannity: Changes? So that would be obstruction of justice?

Carter: Exactly. This is something the Inspector General is investigating. If this is true and not alleged, McCabe will be fired. I heard they are considering firing him within the next few days if this turns out to be true.

Carter said that McCabe "quitting" is just the beginning, and that more resignations will be coming.

As we reported yesterday, McCabe was "removed" from his post as deputy director, "leaving the bureau after months of conflict-of-interest complaints from Republicans including President Trump." Several media outlets reported that McCabe is using his remaining vacation days to go on "terminal leave" and that his official retirement from the agency won't happen until March, allowing him to collect the full pension.

And as we noted last week, FBI Director Wray threatened to resign after being pressured by AG Jeff Sessions.

Around the time of the reports of his impending retirement, McCabe had spent several marathon sessions answering questions from Congressional committees behind closed doors.

It was expected that McCabe would hang on until early March, when he would become eligible for his full pension. It's unclear why he's choosing to step down early.

McCabe's accelerated resignation may a sign that Trump appointee Christopher Wray - who succeeded James Comey as FBI Director - is finally cleaning house.

According to Axios, McCabe may be leaving in anticipation of the release of an inspector general's report on how the FBI handled the Clinton email investigation.

Heads to Roll: House Intel Committee Shocks the World, Votes to Release Surveillance Memo

President Trump and his party just made a move, not only a move, but a monumental, history changing power move. For the past couple of weeks, if you have been paying attention to the news, you will know that the #ReleaseTheMemo campaign has been under full swing and gaining momentum.

Unsurprisingly, this "rallying cry" as it is being dubbed, has been led by vocal members of the right wing community, who have been pushing for the House Intelligence Committee to release the controversial memo to the public.

The Democrats during this time period have been pushing back heavily against this movement, claiming that it could threaten sources and National security. While members within the Republican Congress, who have witnessed the full contents of the memo have been very vocal about the level of corruption it contains.

Regardless of who is right and who is wrong, we are about to find out the truth. The House Intelligence committee has taken a vote and decided in favor of releasing the memo, much to the relief of those who have been pushing for the truth on this matter.

Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, broke this news first to reporters and had the following to say;

“It is a very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.”

In addition to this, he went at length, explaining why he believes that this memo, which apparently exposes high levels of surveillance abuse and corruption by members within the FBI and other government institutions is a bad idea.

For those who simply want the truth released and for the corruption to be exposed, they were overjoyed and exhilarated by the news, as could be seen on Twitter and various other social media networks shortly after the news was learned.
Meanwhile, conspiracy theories of what exactly this memo contains are still running amuck and out of control, as people speculate as to what it contains.

What we do know, is that we are looking at a roller coaster of week in the news cycle, both financially and politically, as it is being reported that what this memo contains is going to radically shake the foundation of the FBI department and result in numerous firings and possibly even criminal charges.

Already, the first victim has been claimed, with FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe being "removed" from his position, after FBI Director Wray was made aware of the memo's contents, foreshadowing what is to come.

This is going to send the markets gyrating, as it seeks to adjust to this news and figure out what the full ramifications of this news is going to have on the United States government as a whole.

Ultimately, I believe in the short term, we are going to see intense finger pointing, numerous heads rolling and a public outcry from members of the MSM as they attempt to spin this story to fit their agendas.

In the end, when the dust settles, I believe the markets are going to respond favorably, for at the end of the day, this is going to result as a huge win for President Trump and his party, cementing their position and vindicating them on many levels. Adding increased security and stability in the current administration and thus the markets as a whole.

Still, this is far from over and is just getting started. Strap yourselves in, put on your helmet and get ready for a bumpy ride, this is going to be a rough one.

At Some Point We Have to Admit the "Left" Is Objectively Worse than Even the Fanatic Right

The left has become such a menace that it would no longer be honest to not see the perception past the reality of the false left right dichotomy. As such, I have to admit the left is objectively (within a subjective framework, funnily) worse than even the most fanatic right wing movements extant in the Western world.

The Next Big Trend: The Resumption of the Precious Metals Bull Market

I am very comfortable with being ahead of the curve. I am actually quite used to going out on a limb and calling market movements before they occur, before it is deemed acceptable, or considered the "norm". This is what contrarian investors do, and I am proud to wear this title.

Anyone else who falls into this minority of investors will know exactly what I am talking about, we are comfortable with not having everyone agree with our every assessment and quite uncomfortable when everyone in the room does.

This is exactly how I was recently able to call the historic crashes we just witnessed within the cryptocurrency markets, weeks before they occurred, and it is exactly why I was able to call its historic rise over six years ago.

In addition to this, my contrarian intuition has served me well throughout the years, allowing me to call silvers massive move higher in its last parabolic bull run, as well as its inevitable top, missing the mark by only $2.00.

Recently, I have taken another contrarian position, one in which I believe is going to fully play out over the next two years, the resurgence of the precious metals markets and commodities as a whole.

This industry has been beaten, battered and bruised, investors in the space have almost entirely capitulated and have grown even more cynical then they already were, which is saying a lot, considering your average precious metals bug (myself included).

We have been treading water for years, just barely keeping our heads above as the cartels beat us back time and time again, suppressing both the price of gold and silver each and every time they look like they are going to surge higher. No more.

This year is going to mark a turnaround and a resumption of the bull market in precious metals, funds flowing out of the cryptocurrency markets are already being reported to be flowing into the precious metals space, and other key assets, a predication that I also made in the latter part of last year, before the crash occurred and one that is now playing out.

We are not going to see 100% gains this year, so don't get too excited yet. However, 10-15% gains within the physical markets are well within reason, followed by a much stronger performance throughout 2019 as this bull market gains steam.

This is going to lead to massive gains in the mining sector, which have also suffered horribly throughout this down trend. I believe that this is where the most profits will be made, in the short to medium term, with many companies making strong gains through 2018 and 2019.

Still, these are just the humble predication of a lonely contrarian investor, and fortunately, I'm quite happy if no one agrees. In the meantime, I'll keep stacking, enjoying these artificially suppressed prices.

As Predicted: Trump Demands Wall, but Open to Restoring Parts of DACA, 3D Chess in Motion

President Trump once again demonstrates his ability to out negotiate his opponents. Just days ago Schumer stated that the wall was off the table and no funding would be allotted. Fortunately, President Trump holds the majority of the bargaining chips in these talks and out maneuvered his opponents once again.

Simply put, if the Democrats don't cave on funding for the wall, then DACA is off the table, entirely. A win, win for Trump and his supporters.

TREASON: Anti Trump FBI Official Identified As Leaker To WSJ, WaPo Reporter

Newly released text messages between controversial anti-Trump FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page reveal several leaks of confidential information to Wall St. Journal reporter, Devlin Barrett, who is now with the Washington Post.

Following the release of the timestamped texts by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Conservative Treehouse compared the timing of the messages between the agents and tied them to several instances of Barrett breaking news or confirming rumors based on "sources" within the government.

Via the Conservative Treehouse:

On October 28th, 2016 (as above), at the exact time the re-opening of the Clinton investigation hit the media news-cycle, Page and Strzok were texting. From the released messaging we see at 5:19pm Lisa Page is on the phone with “Devlin”:

Page: 5:19pm “Still on the phone with Devlin. Mike’s phone is ON FIRE.”

Strzok: 5:29pm “You might wanna tell Devlin he should turn on CNN, there’s news on.”

Page: 5:30pm “He knows. He just got handed a note.”

Strzok: 5:33pm “Ha. He asking about it now?”

Page: 5:34pm “Yeah. It was pretty funny. Coming now.”

At 5:36pm Devlin Barrett tweets:

President Trump: Ultimately I Want to See a Strong Dollar, Mnuchin Was Misinterpreted

President Donald Trump told CNBC on Thursday the dollar will strengthen over time under his leadership and that recent remarks made by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin about the greenback were misinterpreted.

"The dollar is going to get stronger and stronger, and ultimately I want to see a strong dollar," Trump said in an exclusive interview from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. "Our country is becoming so economically strong again and strong in other ways, too."

Trump's latest remarks about the dollar diverge from his past comments. Last April, Trump said he was worried the dollar was "getting too strong."

At the WEF on Wednesday, Mnuchin said he welcomed a weaker U.S. dollar, adding that it would benefit the country's trade. On Thursday, Mnuchin said the comment was not a "shift in my position on the dollar at all. It is perhaps slightly different than previous Treasury secretaries who in recent times have just commented on the strong dollar."

Trump said Mnuchin's comments "were taken out of context," adding he "read his exact statement."

Mnuchin's earlier remarks kicked off a 2 percent decline in the dollar index, which tracks the U.S. currency's performance against six other currencies.

FBI Feared Hillary's Wrath: Mulled Special Counsel For Hillary Email Probe, New Texts Revealed

Newly released text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page reveal that the agency's top brass was considering appointing former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald as a special counsel in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

The idea is pitched in a March, 2016 exchange between Strzok and Page - relatively early on in their investigation into Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified information. Of note, Attorney General Loretta Lynch or one of her deputies would have had to make the ultimate decision to appoint a special prosecutor to look into the "matter."

"Thought of the perfect person [FBI Director James Comey] can bounce this off of?" Strzok wrote to Page in a March 18, 2016 text. "Pat....You got to give me credit if we go with him....And delay briefing him on until I can get back and do it, Late next week or later."

"We talked about him last night, not for this, but how great he is," Page responded.

"I could work with him again....And damn we'd get sh*t DONE," Strzok wrote.

Strzok noted that Fitzgerald was brought in by Comey as a special counsel in the investigation into who leaked the identity of CIA agent Valerie Plame.

Appointed in 2001 by President George W. Bush, Fitzgerald was the longest-serving U.S. Attorney in Chicago history - and has led several high profile federal investigations and prosecutions.

In a follow-up text exchange on May 13, 2016, Page asks Strzok "Hey forgot to ask if you mentioned the whole special counsel thing to andy?" (referring to current Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe).

No special prosecutor was selected for the Clinton email investigation despite calls by Republicans to do so as early as February, 2016.

Instead, former FBI Director James Comey had originally determined Clinton's conduct fit the legally consequential charge of "gross negligence" which Peter Strzok later downgraded to "extremely careless" - which is not a legal term of art. The agency ultimately recommended that the Department of Justice not press charges.

In a Thursday letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley asked if whether the FBI had approached the DOJ to appoint a special counsel. "If not, why not?" wrote Grassley, who also demanded all written communications on the subject.

Politics as usual...

The newly released batch of text messages also reveal that the pair of anti-Trump FBI agents were concerned over reprisal from Hillary Clinton, should they aggressively pursue her.

"One more thing: she might be our next president," Page wrote, adding "The last thing you need us going in there loaded for bear. You think she's going to remember or care that it was more doj than fbi?"

"Agreed," Strzok replied.

Th texts also reveal that Page was engaged in a lengthy phone conversation with then-Wall St. Journal (now WaPo) reporter Devlin Barrett - several days after the journalist published a story on FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's wife receiving over half a million dollars in campaign donations from a committee tied to then-Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-VA). Barrett also reportedon an "internal feud" at the FBI over investigating the Clinton Foundation, leading some to suggest that he was a conduit for the FBI to leak information to the public...

BREAKING: DOJ recovers missing text messages between anti-Trump FBI agents Strzok and Page

The Department of Justice has recovered missing text messages between anti-Trump FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, the DOJ’s inspector general said Thursday.

In a letter sent to congressional committees, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz said his office “succeeded in using forensic tools to recover text messages from FBI devices, including text messages between Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page that were sent or received between December 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017.”

“Our effort to recover any additional text messages is ongoing,” Horowitz said. “We will provide copies of the text messages that we recover from these devices to the Department so that the Department’s leadership can take any management action it deems appropriate.”

Fox News’ Sean Hannity had reported Wednesday that the Department of Justice had started to recover some of the texts.

The missing messages have been at the center of a storm of controversy on Capitol Hill, after the DOJ notified congressional committees that there is a gap in records between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017. Strzok and Page are under scrutiny after it was revealed that the former members of Robert Mueller's team exchanged a series of anti-Trump texts during the presidential campaign.

The gap in records covered a crucial period, raising suspicion among GOP lawmakers about how those messages disappeared.

More than 50,000 texts were exchanged between Strzok and Page, Attorney General Jeff Sessions revealed Monday. Sessions had pledged to figure out how some of their texts went missing.

“We will leave no stone unturned to confirm with certainty why these text messages are not now available to be produced and will use every technology available to determine whether the missing messages are recoverable from another source,” Sessions said in a statement provided to Fox News. “If we are successful, we will update the congressional committees immediately.”

Federal law enforcement officials told Fox News on Wednesday that thousands of FBI cellphones were affected by the technical glitch that apparently prevented those Strzok and Page messages from being stored or uploaded into the bureau’s archive system.

Horowitz sent his letter confirming the discovery of texts to Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who had inquired about the messages.

The five-month stretch of missing messages covers a period of time that includes President Donald Trump's inauguration, the firings of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James Comey and the standing-up of former FBI Director Mueller as special counsel to investigate alleged Trump campaign collusion with Russian officials during the 2016 election.

FBI Agents Baffled: Why Do These Anti-Trump, Clinton Operatives Still Have Jobs?

The recently revealed text messages from Clinton operatives within the FBI that spoke about a “secret society” within the agency that met to discuss ways to take out President Trump have led many to question how those involved still have a job at the agency despite the mounting evidence of widespread corruption.

Keep in mind that it has already been revealed that top counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, along with his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, were directly involved in a conspiracy to protect their preferred presidential candidate in Hillary Clinton while doing everything in their power to hurt her opponent, Donald Trump.

Now we know that those two, along with a slew of others within the federal government, actually continued their operation against Trump after he was democratically elected, even taking their conspiracy so far as to set up a sort of secret society which included the same key figures who helped jump start the sham Russian investigation in the first place.

Amazingly, there are apparently agents with the FBI itself who are just as angry about said conspiracy as are the American people and are now telling reporters that they are concerned that those involved still work for the FBI in any capacity.

According to a report from investigative journalist Sara Carter, agents within the FBI have told her that they question how anti-Trump operatives such as Strzok and Page even still have a job after all the shocking revelations surrounding their work to protect Clinton and hurt Trump.

Real Clear Politics reports:

Carter pointed out that previously revealed Strzok-Page texts alluded to an “insurance policy” that could be used if Trump won the presidency.

“Their worst nightmare has come true, the president is elected. That is something they did not expect. FBI sources said from the very beginning that they didn’t want Trump to make it into office.”

“I’m concerned that they’re still working at the FBI,” Carter said. “I’m hearing from my sources, too. FBI agents are saying, ‘Why are they still there?'”

“The Lovebirds. They were having an affair, they were both married, they’re working counter-intelligence. That’s enough for blackmail,” Carter said. “Now they’re sending text messages on an unsecured phone. Believe me, the Germans, the Russians, the Israelis, everybody is going into those phones and trying to suck out all the information they have.”

One has to wonder if they simply know too much and cannot be fully fired over fears that they may spill the beans on the entire conspiracy which many now believe to be worse than Watergate.

Carter also touched on the laughable claim that the missing text messages (from a key point when those involved would actually be carrying out key parts of the conspiracy) were lost due to some sort of cellphone glitch.

About the FBI’s claim that the Samsung phones are responsible for the 50,000 additional missing text messages, Carter says: "I can tell you this, a lot of people within the DOJ, possibly even the inspector general himself, a lot of people within these committees do not buy this."

Evidence Against The Deep State Is Piling Up: MASSIVE Scandal At The FBI

The evidence continues to pile up against the deep state in the brewing FBI scandal. While the mainstream media assure the public through propaganda that there is no such thing as a “deep state,” the evidence shows otherwise.

According to The New York Post, each day brings credible reports suggesting there is a massive ongoing scandal involving the top ranks of America’s premier law enforcement agency: the FBI. The reports, which feature talk among agents of a “secret society” and suddenly missing text messages, point to the existence both of a cabal dedicated to defeating Donald Trump in 2016 and of a plan to let Hillary Clinton skate free in the classified email probe.

If either one is true, and we believe both probably are, it would mean FBI leaders betrayed the nation by abusing their powers in a bid to pick the president.

During an appearance on CNN, counterterrorism analyst and former CIA agent Philip Mudd said on air that “the government’s gonna kill” Donald Trump because he disrespected the deep state.

More support for this view involves the FBI’s use of the Russian dossier on Trump that was paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. It is almost certain that the FBI used the dossier to get FISA court warrants to spy on Trump associates, meaning it used the opposition research of the party in power to convince a court to let it spy on the candidate of the other party — likely without telling the court of the dossier’s political link. -The New York Post

Separately, an FBI informant told Congress that a secret society within the FBI, which met the day after Trump’s election to plot his downfall, went on to hold clandestine meetings off-site. “That secret society — we have an informant that’s talking about a group that were holding secret meetings off-site,” Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) told Fox News last night. “There is so much smoke here. We have to dig into it — this is not a distraction. Again, this is bias — potentially corruption — at the highest levels of the FBI,” Johnson added.

These major and intertwined scandals all point to the one thing the media is dead set on indoctrinating into the minds of the public as fake: the deep state. There’s too much evidence to deny it, yet the media writes it off as a conspiracy or fake news and demeans those who seek answers to the questions they refuse to even ask. But how do they explain the missing text messages and the “secret society” comments between two top-ranking FBI officials? Very poorly, but the masses don’t seem to care that much and won’t even consider the fact that maybe the media and their own government fooled them.

President Trump: Fighting Back Against Russia Probe is NOT Obstruction

President Trump defended his attacks of investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election, denying that it amounts to obstruction and saying he was merely “fight[ing] back.”

“There’s been no collusion whatsoever,” Trump told reporters in an impromptu press conference on Wednesday. “There’s no obstruction whatsoever. And I’m looking forward to it.”

Trump also mocked critics who have accused him of obstructing the Russia probe by attacking the investigations and referring to them as a “witch hunt.”

Trump also told reporters that he plans to speak with special counsel Robert Mueller in two to three weeks, but said his lawyers are working out the specifics.

“I'm looking forward to it," Trump said about being questioned by Mueller. "I would do it under oath.”

The president has repeatedly referred to the Russia probe as a “hoax” and said in December that the investigation “makes the country look very bad.”

“It puts the country in a very bad position,” Trump told The New York Times. “So the sooner it’s worked out, the better it is for the country.”

Trump has denied any collusion between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russia, and told the Times that “even if there was, it’s not a crime.”

First Leaks Revealed: Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe All Named In FISA Memo

A bombshell four-page "FISA memo" alleging egregious surveillance abuse by the FBI, DOJ and Obama administration, specifically names FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, according to the Daily Beast.

The GOP-authored memo made waves last week after it was made available to the full House of Representatives for viewing. With over 60 GOP lawmakers calling for its release, Capitol Hill sources on both sides of the aisle tell The Daily Beast that it's only a matter of time before the general public is allowed to view the document - which is likely to stoke already-inflamed tensions between GOP lawmakers and the individuals named in the leak.

The facts contained in the Republican majority-authored report are said to be "jaw-dropping and demand full transparency," according to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), while the top ranking Democrat on the House Intel Committee, Adam Schiff (D-CA) dismissed the memo as "profoundly misleading" talking points drafted by Republican staffers.

Several other GOP Congressmembers have weighed in. "I have read the memo," tweeted Rep. Steve King (R-IA), adding "The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was #neverTrump & #alwaysHillary. #releasethememo."

Along with the four-page memo, Congressional investigators learned from a new batch of text messages between anti-Trump FBI investigators that several individuals within the Department of Justice and the FBI may have come together in the "immediate aftermath" of the 2016 election to undermine President Trump, according to Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) who has reviewed the texts.

This is particularly interesting since the memo allegedly names Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein - who created Robert Mueller's special counsel after former FBI Director James Comey was fired.

While the "secret society" reference may have been in jest ("Are you even going to give out your calendars? Seems kind of depressing. Maybe it should just be the first meeting of the secret society," Page wrote to Strzok), a whistleblower has allegedly confirmed the existence of clandestine, of high ranking U.S. intelligence officials which met "offsite" to conspire against a sitting President, according to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI).

“we have an informant talking about a group holding secret meetings off-site,” Johnson said.

“We have to continue to dig into it,” he added. “This is not a distraction. This is biased, potentially corruption at the highest levels of the FBI.” -The Hill

On Monday night, Reps. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) and Trey Gowdy (R-SC) told Fox News what they had learned from the new batch of communications between FBI investigators Peter Strzok and Lisa Page - contained within a 384-page batch of text messages delivered to Congress from the DOJ last Friday. Of note Ratcliffe says that Strzok and Page were included in the clandestine anti-Trump cabal at the highest levels of the American intelligence community...

"Jaw-dropping" Text Message By FBI Agent Suggests No Trump Collusion With Russia

And the hits just keep on coming.

Just hours after we reported that according to the latest batch of text messages between anti-Trump FBI investigators, a "secret society of folks" within the DOJ and the FBI may have come together in the "immediate aftermath" of the 2016 election to undermine President Trump, another blockbuster text message appears to have emerged.

Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said in a radio interview that the FBI’s top agent on the Trump-Russia investigation, Peter Strzok, sent what Johnson called a "jaw-dropping" text message last year that suggests he saw no evidence of Trump campaign collusion.

As first reported by the Daily Caller's Chuck Ross, in an interview with WISN-Milwaukee radio host Jay Weber, Johnson read aloud a May 19, 2017 text that Strzok sent to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress.

As Weber summarized, "Sen Ron Johnson tells me he's discovered a text from Peter Strzok 2 days after the Mueller investigation in which he questions whether he wants to be part of it because he believes 'there's nothing there'. No collusion."

Here is the "jawdropping" text message that Strzok wrote just two days after Mueller was named special counsel for the Russia Investigation:

"You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there."

Johnson said that the text referred to the Mueller investigation, which had kicked off two days earlier. Strzok joined that team, but was removed in July after the Justice Department’s inspector general discovered his anti-Trump text exchanges with Page.

As the FBI’s deputy counterintelligence chief, Strzok had been picked in July 2016 to oversee the investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with the Russian government; in other words the text message came almost one year after the anti-Trump FBI agent had already done preliminary work on whether there was any Trump collusion. Prior to that, he was a top investigator on the Clinton email inquiry.

“I think that’s kind of jaw-dropping,” said Johnson, a Republican, said of the Strzok text.

“In other words, Peter Strzok, who was the FBI deputy assistant director of the counterintelligence division, the man who had a plan to do something because he just couldn’t abide Donald Trump being president, is saying that his gut sense is that there’s no big there there when it comes to the Mueller special counsel investigation,” Johnson explained...

Former CIA Agent: Trump Has the Deep State Terrified

The very people that have been attacking Donald Trump are now feeling the Trump counter attack. Former top CIA officer Kevin Shipp says, “They are terrified, they are terrified right now. They did not expect Trump to do what he is doing now. 

The reason they tried to get him even before he was elected is they knew he was uncontrollable, and they knew if he got in there, they would not be able to manipulate him, and that is exactly what’s happening. There are some people, and there is no doubt about it, that are running scared right now. 

Donald Trump is questioning the Deep State and the shadow government. He’s rocking that place left and right. The news media is terrified of that. Their editors are telling them to attack him just like they are attacking him from the inside. It’s just dirty pool because they want him taken out.” 

In closing, Shipp says, “Trump is making tremendous progress despite tremendous resistance. They have already done a character assassination on him, and I think they could go further than that. Trump is making progress, and he has them running scared.”

The Eye of Sauron Turns its Gaze on Cryptocurrencies, The Crackdown Begins

Bitcoin and all other cryptocurrencies were enjoying a much needed rally over the past couple of days, confidence was building once again and things were appearing to get back on track, the resumption of the bull market was back on! That is, until government officials and central banksters had their say.

This is something that I and many others have been stating for years. The larger and more successful that cryptocurrencies become, the more of a threat they are to the establishment. The financial elite derives the vast majority of their power from their ability to endlessly print fiat money out of thin air.

This power is undeniably vast and therefore it comes as no surprise to me that the eye of "Sauron" is now being turned on crypto's. This is a space that they have been watching skeptically for some years now, the FED has kept a watchful eye and so too have others.

This watchful eye has turned to jawboning, a common tactic used by central banksters the world over. They love this strategy, as it requires getting no "blood on their hands". Simply speaking positively, or in this cause negative about a market can send them either soaring or plummeting. This strategy has been witnessed countless times before, when they discuss gold, the markets, or interest rates. It just so happens they are now turning their sights on the hottest market that any of us have seen in our lifetimes, crypto's.

One of crypto's greatest assets is the fact that they are not controlled by any one government and are largely unregulated and de-centralized. This has caused all kinds of legitimate, dark and grey money to flow into this space.

This has made countless millionaires out of small time investors over the past year, many of whom are likely attempting to dodge the tax man in any way that they can.

Now, Bitcoin and other crypto's have suffered another major setback, falling 20% overnight due to continued crackdowns from China and increased hostility by South Korea, both of which make up an incredibly large portion of the global market for cryptocurrencies.

South Korea's finance minister Kim Dong-Yeon even went as far as to state that a "cryptocurrency exchange shutdown is still an option." An action that is already having dire consequences for the markets, even though it has not yet played out in actuality.

Central bankers the world over are now stuck in-between a rock and a hard place. Do they A) regulate and clamp down on cryptocurrencies, sending it once again into the black market, where many will continue to be traded, albeit at short-term lower prices. Or do they B) allow cryptocurrencies to be embraced on the open markets, attempting to tax and regulate as much as possible? Risking the possibility of them overtaking their fiat money due to Gresham's law.

My guess is the following. Some countries will fully embrace the crypto space, hoping to become central hubs of trading in the market, similar to how Wall St and London are for the broader markets. While other countries, fearing the worst will continue from this point on to ratchet up their rhetoric against both Bitcoin and every other alt-coin.

However, there is a third scenario. The last being the most sinister and frightening. C) Central banks, seeing the value in this purely digital currency will issue their own Frankenstein cryptocurrencies, while at the same time clamp down on the existing market. Moving to a purely digital based fiat money world, one of their greatest dreams.

The latter of these three scenarios is truly the most scary, as this timeline must be resisted at all cost. The power and control that this would offer a government would be truly absolute. Abuse would be rampant and unjust, in essence, they would own you through their ability to control your flow of money, whenever and however they wish.

Regardless of what unfolds from this point on, 2018 is shaping up to be a roller coaster of a ride for not only cryptocurrencies, but for gold, silver and the markets as a whole. We are now smack dab in the middle of a once in a lifetime revolutionary change in how markets function and operate. Strap yourselves in, this is going to be a bumpy one.

Free Speech Under Fire, Liberty Strikes Back

Today, Project Veritas, who are known for their multiple bombshell reports via their undercover investigations into government agencies and the mainstream media, have once again delivered in spades.

After recently targeting mainstream media outlets such as CNN and the Washington Post and exposing them for their left leaning bias and anti Trump rhetoric (something well known to all, but still shocking to hear from the horses mouth), they have released another massive video and this time the victim is game changing. Twitter.

For the past year, those who have taken part in the "conversation" on this social media platform will be well aware of exactly what James O'Keefe is discussing in the above video, in which his undercover video clearly shows Twitter employees explaining a process known as "shadow banning".

Shadow banning can be summed up very simply and easily;

Imagine yourself in a room with hundreds of other people, possibly even thousands to tens of thousands. Now, in this room you have the ability to move around and talk to people, to listen to others voices and opinions, perhaps you agree with them, perhaps not. Predominately in this room, as is the case with twitter, you are discussing news events, whether they be political or not, is your choice, but in this scenario, lets say that in this room the topic of conversation is just that, politics.

Undoubtedly, as is the case with anything in life, arguments within this room are going to erupt, they are going to get heated and not everyone is going to agree with everyone else. This is ok, this is normal, as this is the way throughout much of human history that we have progressed and made progress, eventually finding middle ground with one another. This is the adult thing to do, and is normal, perhaps even necessary in a functioning society.

Now imagine within this room, their are puppet masters that reside above all others. These puppet masters in Twitters case have an incredibly left leaning bias, which is ok, and not wrong in and of itself. What is wrong however is that these puppet masters have the ability to control the flow and course of information by placing a box over those whom they don't agree with, in this case, anyone who is gaining traction, or speaking out too loudly on the right.

If you happen to be placed in one of these boxes, of which I have been many times before in the past, as I regularly do gain traction now with over 15,000 twitter followers, you can still see everyone in the room. In addition to this, you can still hear, you can still speak, but no one can hear you. Worst of all, you don't know that you are placed within this box, as you receive no warning and no indication other than the fact that your tweets all of sudden lose total traction, where as minutes before they were moving at rapid fire speed, being re-tweeted and liked at a feverish pace.

Eventually, this box will be removed and you can move about your business, as per normal. Until once again you dare step out of line and engage in "wrong think".

Many of us within the precious metals space can relate to this report by Project Veritas and I for one am well aware of this ongoing attack on free speech. The MSM has also attempted to silence and control opinions they do not agree with in the past, by reporting on key facts and omitting others, an action known as lying through omission.

Twitter, Google and Facebook are just the new age versions of the MSM. They have almost absolute control over what does and what does not appear on their platforms. They are using this control to guide people towards the path they see fit. Unfortunately for them, because of people like James O'Keefe and others, light is being shined on their corruption and people are revolting.

This has led to a number of free speech platforms, such as and, both who have become incredibly popular for liberty lovers that reside on either the right or the left, simply due to the fact that they have made it their mission statements to take a "hands off" approach.

As we have seen countless times in the past, the free market will only be controlled and regulated for so long and by so much. This is just one more example of how people are exerting their will and saying no more. The liberty movement is alive and well. People are taking notice and they are saying, enough is enough, the time for change is now.

Bill Murphy: The Gold Cartel is Going to Lose Control in 2018

Gold is up 11 days straight. Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Chairman Bill Murphy says as excitement in the gold space increases, the Gold Cartel may lose control of the price! 

Murphy explains the Gold Cartel manages the price by washing out the speculators. If gold breaks through $1,380 and silver through $21, the cartel may lose control. 

 Murphy says, “If silver can break through the 21 area, it’s going to mean a total lack of this maniacal control this Gold Cartel is trying to keep on the silver market. And once they lose this control, I think we could see some upside action somewhat similar to what we saw in the cryptocurrencies.” Some of the mining stocks as well could have returns similar to the cryptocurrencies, Murphy says. 

With gold up 11 days straight, Murphy sees the potential for a short term correction. But stay tuned for cryptocurrency style upsides he says.

Nomi Prins: The Mystery of Dark Money

Donald Trump was onto something when he said during the first presidential debate that “we’re in a big, fat ugly bubble.” Even if he ironically embraces the bubble now that he’s in the Oval Office.

The questions du jour are…

Why hasn’t the bubble popped yet?

And how long can a rigged market stay rigged?

Will the market keep moving higher? Correct? Or will it crash?

And, should everyday investors play the game?

The answers — and the catalyst for this bold new project — lie in two words:

Dark Money.

You know the adage, “It takes money to make money.” That adage has been around for a long time. What’s relatively new, however, is collusion between various governments, central banks and private banks. They work in tandem to siphon off more power and money for themselves using law’s, power-brokering, and quid-pro-quos.

Ultimately, what allows all of this political and financial extraction from Main Street is central bank monetary policy that creates what I’m calling “dark money.”

As the Wall Street Journal has revealed, 60% of the market’s gains between 2008 and 2016 were generated on days when the Federal Reserve made its policy decisions.

That’s dark money in action — together with collusion of central banks around the world.

And according to research done by Brian Barnier of Value Bridge investors and the website FedDashboard, 93% of the stock market’s move since 2008 is explained by the Federal Reserve’s actions.

The authors of the book, Invest with the Fed also write that “the data show that stock returns are approximately three times higher when monetary conditions are expansive than are returns earned when conditions are restrictive.”

Even former Dallas Federal Reserve President, Richard Fisher admitted on the record that:

“What the Fed did — and I was part of that group — is we front-loaded a tremendous market rally, starting in 2009…in order to accomplish a wealth effect.”

And later, he admitted:

“You have to be… frank about what drove the markets…. It was, the Fed, the Fed, the Fed, the European Central Bank, the Japanese Central bank … all quantitatively driven by central bank activity.”

So that age-old adage needs updating. Nowadays, “It takes dark money to make money.”

Since late 2007, the Federal Reserve has embarked on grand-scale collusion with other G-7 central banks to manufacture a massive amount of dark money. The scope and degree of this collusion are unprecedented.

On July 31, 2017, Fischer delivered a speech in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He addressed the phenomenon of low interest rates worldwide. Fischer admitted that “the effects of quantitative easing in the United States and abroad” are suppressing rates.

He also said there was “a heightened demand for safe assets affecting yields on advanced-economy government securities.” What he meant was that investors are realizing that low rates since 2008 haven’t been effective at fueling real growth, just asset bubbles.

Remember, Fischer was the Fed’s No. 2 man. He was also a professor to former Fed Chair Ben Bernanke and current European Central Bank President Mario Draghi. Both have considered him to be a major influence in their economic outlook.

The “Big Three” central banks — the Fed, the European Central Bank and the Bank of Japan — have collectively held rates at a zero percent average since the global financial crisis began. For nearly a decade, central banks have been batting about tens of trillions of dollars in dark money.

They have dictated the cost of money and fueled bubbles. They have amassed assets on their books worth nearly $14 trillion.

By producing and distributing artificial money, central bankers distorted reality in global markets.

Since the global financial crisis, the big winners have been the big six U.S. banks that profited from access to dark money.

They used printed money to fund buybacks of their own shares and pay themselves dividends on those shares.

After the Big Six banks passed their latest round of stress tests, they began buying even more of their own shares back. The move elevated their stock prices. The largest U.S. bank, JP Morgan Chase, announced its most ambitious program to buy back its own shares since the 2008 crisis, $19.4 billion worth. Citigroup announced its biggest buyback, $15.6 billion.

The Fed’s all-clear was another version of QE for banks courtesy of the Fed. Instead of buying bonds via QE programs to keep rates down and the cost of money cheap, the Fed greenlighted banks to speculate in their own stocks, creating more artificiality in the level of the stock market. U.S. banks disclosed plans to buy back $92.8 billion of their own stock to say thank you to the Fed for the “A.”

More ominous than that was a clear sign that decades of money-conjuring collusion had helped the same banks that caused the last crisis. Proof came in the form of a letter to the U.S. Senate banking committee from Thomas Hoenig, the vice-chairman of the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), the government agency in charge of guaranteeing people’s deposits.

He wrote that in 2017, U.S. banks used 99% of their net earnings toward purchases of their own stock and paying dividends to shareholders (including themselves).

They legally manipulated markets in plain sight by pushing their own share prices up with cheap money availed to them by the central banks that are supposed to regulate them.

The amount of securities the G-3 central banks held on their books, about $14 trillion, was equivalent to a staggering 17% of all global GDP.

Their efforts to provide dark money into the banking system are constantly peppered with cheerleading phrases like “unlimited” and “by all means necessary.” What they are really saying is that they are playing a game with no defined objectives.

Starting with the Fed, central bankers have continued to build policy on the fly. The central bankers’ science experiment has spread beyond financial policy. It morphed into something even Dr. Frankenstein couldn’t have imagined.

Confidence in the Fed and the U.S. dollar (as well as in other major central banks globally) has dropped considerably. Maybe that at least in part explains the explosive rise of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies?

Even central bankers have admitted that their dark money creation scheme was largely a bust, but not in any official statement.

The fact is, this dark money system is not going away. If anything, it is evolving. The ECB, BOJ and Bank of England are still buying billions of dollars worth of assets per month. And as Janet Yellen, the Federal Reserve chair told a crowd during a recent speech in Washington, “The bottom line is that we must recognize that our unconventional tools might have to be used again.”

What she was signaling is that this era of collusion and reckless monetary experiments are far from over.

When I left Wall Street shortly after 9/11, I blew the whistle on their shady practices. I felt as though my history at the highest level of these firms gave me a privileged position to help everyday Americans and Main Street understand how we’re being pillaged. I channeled my true passion, writing, to communicate what was happening.

I believe those equipped with the right approach, tools and systems can even find opportunity in the world of dark money.

The world runs on “dark money.” Don’t let the insiders have it all.

A Great Upheaval Approaches as the MSM Continues to Pit the Left Against the Right

The political climate within the United States is toxic. This cannot be denied and nor should it. The ramifications of what is unfolding will have long lasting effects, and to those who think they can simply stick their heads in the sand and forget about it all, you are simply kidding yourself.

Normality will occur, this I do not doubt, but not before a great upheaval occurs. To many, the election of Donald Trump was that upheaval, as a massive trend was reversed and a new path set in motion.

For better or worse, this is the path we are now on. America is moving in a direction that is seeing it focus more and more on itself, becoming ever more insular. To some that believe in globalism, this is a scary thought, to others it has been exactly what they have been waiting for.

This climate has torn families apart, as lines in the sand have been drawn. I have heard countless stories about how their once peaceful family gatherings have taken a turn for the worse. Conversations have ceased between many, but why? Why is this all happening?

Undeniably, Donald Trump is the most polarizing President we have seen in decades, or possibly even longer. He has made many enemies along the way, and he is going to make many more. But what you must understand, is that to his die hard, loyal supporters, this is ok. This is what is needed to get the job done. The time for the velvet glove treatment in their eyes is over. It's time to get down to work.

Many stories are exaggerated and blown out of proportion, making matters appear much worse than they actually are. The dying, corrupt, dinosaur MSM is largely to blame for this. They are one of the biggest threats to society as a whole, as they continue to pump out click bait articles and headlines that pit people against each other.

These stories are filled with half truths and lies by omission. Both sides are guilty of this, and are to blame, whether it be the horrendous CNN, or the laughable Fox News.

Fortunately, these networks are dying as people continue to "wake up" and do their own research, exposing the farce that they are. Unfortunately, this is not happening fast enough and much damage is yet to be inflicted in their dying gasps.

As I have stated in previous articles, I believe 2018 is going to see a resurgence in the commodities bull market of the past. We are going to see gold, silver, oil and many other hard assets go up in price significantly as they come back in vogue.

This move higher is going to not only be for the many reasons that I have mentioned in the recent past, but additionally because of the increasingly unstable political climate that we find ourselves in. 

Fund managers and individuals in the know are going to move back into safe haven assets as the world continues to be rocked back and forth, as they attempt to protect their clients' wealth and their own.

2018 is going to be filled with much more turmoil and many more explosive "hit pieces" that are going to continue to push both the left and right further apart from one another, until a breaking point is reached and a snap occurs.

It is then, and only then that we will be able to move back towards the common ground that is known as the center. The pendulum has swung too far, a return to normality is coming, but not yet...
