Beef Shortages, Price Goes Up…Gold & Silver Shortages, Price Goes Down: Seems Legit…

Price discovery at its finest! Soon to be “gouging” for the former, and just a good old-fashioned woodshed beating out of spite for the latter…

The leader of a domestic terrorist organization The boss of an extortionist cartel The Fed Chair was giving an update on how they plan to kill elderly American savers eliminate the time value of money and enslave Americans not yet old enough to stand up for themselves exponentially grow all forms of debt.

In case you missed it, here it is in its entirety:

If you thought the apologist, armchair quarter-backing, and cheerleading journalists’ questions were tightly vetted before, well, with this new virtual conference format, at least there’s the rare possibility of a booger flying out of one of their noses as they sing their hymns of financial repression, so there’s that.

If anybody is surprised about the food shortages, spiking food price inflation, and down right global famine, well, what can I say?

Pop culture dumbs-down a good many indeed.

It’s by design, you know, and very evil.

But I digress.

“Nobody could have seen this coming”, say the sheeple.

Well, duh.

The sheeple never do.

Nonetheless, the mainstream media is talking about food price inflation and food shortages, such as in this article from this morning :

Supply and demand, for now.

But not for long.

I mean, if Deep State Globalist President Trump is sending in his fellow Deep State Globalist and cover-upper extraordinaire AG Barr to round-up a couple of Deplorables for trying to move some N-95 masks around New York City, well, it’s a lot harder for Deplorables to hide some freakin’ ground beef:

The Trump Administration will have no problems in making the shortage of beef worse, however, and then simply unavailable, because Trump can say “it will cost this”, or, “there’s plenty of that”, but if a seller is not able to charge this, then no, there won’t be any of that.

What happens when it costs more to get the new product to market, Mr. President?

If that $3.50 bottle of ranch salad dressing can now only be made and brought to market for $35, what are you gonna do then, Mr. President?

The government can only get in the way, or get out of the way, and that’s it.

Trump loves getting in the way of absolutely everything.

That’s how his script reads he rolls.

And his fans love it!



In other news, this is kind of funny:

One of the first markets to return to normal.


Regardless, I do have a point to make here: If you are not on the inside with a direct line to the first hand source of information, and if you are gambling in this rigged casino with your borrowed or not unbacked, debt-based fiat currency known as the dollar, then you will not know when they will attempt to ramp the market, drop the market, fade the market, or worse, so for now, you are lucky, but sooner or later, your luck will run out.

That’s why it’s a rigged casino, you know.

Get in the very inside, or get out.

Or else lose everything.

Your choice.


I’ve been talking about the crack-up boom starting for a while now.

Thank goodness everybody thinks I’m nuts because it gives me more time to buy things before others.

Has anybody else purchased any yeast lately?

Darn near impossible to find, and expensive too.

Has anybody else bought any toilet paper lately?

I’ve tried, several times, and I’ve had zero luck!


Has anybody bought any of those cheap table napkins from Walmart lately?

They’ve shot-up in price, big time, and the quality is now that of Mexico, meaning crappy, so if you don’t understand what I mean when I say the standard of living for the average Mexican can only go somewhat up while the standard of living for the average American can only go way down, you’re about to be in for a rude awakening.

Anybody with any important paper “savings” or “wealth” will be totally wiped-out.

Bottom line as we find ourselves here this beautiful Thursday in late April?

I used to say Walmart has nothing you need, but everything you want.

You may not believe me when I say the crack-up boom has begun.

It’s a modern day crack-up boom, and yes real stuff’s vanishing.

We have an excess of cheap Chinese crap, sure, but soon?

It will be sold-off at auction, and shipped back to China.

Ya don’t destroy a nation but let ’em keep their stuff!

It doesn’t work like that, so we will get nothing.

It’s economic misery and financial ruin.

Mixed-in with the food shortages.

Can’t buy what you need.

No money anyway.

Many will die.

Unable to?



Stack accordingly…
