President Trump’s acceptance of National Security Advisor Flynn’s resignation marks Official Washington’s first big success in neutering Trump and killing hopes for a détente with Russia.  Hysteria over Russia gained added strength because Democrats were so angry over Trump’s election that liberal and progressive operatives saw a chance to build a movement and raise lots of money by pushing the Trump-Putin accusations.

This opportunism has turned much of the liberal/progressive community into a pro-New Cold War constituency willing to engage in a new breed of McCarthyism by demanding intensive investigations into alleged connections between Americans and Russians.

Yellen may be yelling, but the market isn’t really listening. After her second day of Congressional testimony, we were treated to a precious metals sell-off on Comex as the prospect of interest rate increases and a rising dollar continue to rattle the precious metals sector. Demonstrating the power of the current bull move, both gold and silver have reversed and are now making their highs for the Comex session.

The United States and her allies made war on Syria.  For years, Western mainstream media has be telling lies about American and allied support for terrorists (freedom fighters) the U.S. sought to have further geopolitical objectives.  Now, the mainstream media lies are so over the top that liberals are having their heart strings pulled as their brains turn off on account of having zero understanding of what actually happened in the Syrian war theater.  Liberals and progressives that are antiwar have been lobotomized by mainstream media.  It was easy for liberals and progressives to understand a war of aggression when it was launched by former President George W. Bush;  most of the same core nutcase “neocons” in the Dubya’ administration are behind the war on Syria.  Wake-up, America.  The “Fake News” outlets are the mainstream media, not The News Doctors, ZeroHedge, Dr. Ron Paul’s media outlets, Mises.org and other fine organizations the jackasses at The Washington Post labeled as propaganda.  – Eric Dubin, Managing Editor, The News Doctors

Jannet Yellen’s testimony before Congress offers an opportunity for sending traders running for cover, as central bankers and government interests work to manage the mess they have created in hyper-managed financial markets and a Western banking system bloated by decades of mainlining liquidity heroin in a boom-bust financial markets driven leverage cycle.  To think that the creation of the Fed was partially justified on the notion that it would engender stability in financial markets and the banking system!

petrodollar

In December, Grant Williams, author of “Things That Make You Go Hmm…” offered the most comprehensive analysis yet of the rise and inevitable fall of the petrodollar (and implicitly US hegemony). In the following presentation, from Mines & Money Conference in London in December 2016, Williams focuses on gold’s performance in 2016, the reaction to Donald Trump’s election and joins a series of dots that may lead to the end of the petrodollar system and a new place for gold in the global monetary system.

Beijing (dpa) – China has commended US President Donald Trump for a letter he has sent President Xi Jinping anticipating a “constructive relationship” between the two countries, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said Thursday. The leaders of the two largest economies in the world haven’t spoken by phone since Trump’s inauguration, though the US president has spoken…

currency-wars

Let’s examine the economic agenda of Trump team, called by Assistant to the President and Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon, “national economics.” The key targets so far are China and Germany, two nations with the largest trade surplus with the United States. A closer look, however, suggests Washington is preparing to launch what James Rickards, sometimes advisor on capital markets to the US intelligence community, refers to as “currency wars.” Aside from the obvious China target, the second and perhaps more important target is to destroy the Euro and its European Monetary System. Here Germany is at the heart, one reason, perhaps, why Chancellor Merkel seems to have severe gas pains whenever the name Trump is uttered.

I’ve seen with my own eyes countless vets that experienced the therapeutic impact of cannabis in countering PTSD.  Finally, the research community is waking up to the reality that cannabis is a powerful healer of many conditions.  Cannabis helped to cure me of Lyme disease, a story I will be disclosing in the not too distant future.  – Eric Dubin, Managing Editor, The News Doctors.
