SD Friday Wrap: It sure looks like the Southern border “national security crisis” will be used to kill-off the economy (but it’s likely already dead anyway)…
The evil globalists and the treasonous anti-America American Deep State are in a pickle.
You see, thanks to critical thinkers and to the internet, any false flag of sufficient scale that is carried-out by these sickos is picked-apart within 48 hours.
And I’m being conservative with my estimate.
But to effect big change on the masses, change which is always for the worse, there must be some sort of trigger – hence the change is usually triggered by a false flag or false flag hoax of some sort, such as a mass shooting.
So what are the globalists and the Deep State to do when they now see that any false flag, either real or hoaxed, will be picked-apart and shown for what it is within hours?
Ahh, that is the pickle.
Now I’ll tell you what they will do: They will create a crisis, and the crisis will be the false flag, but it will play-out over time.
Call it a “hybrid” false flag, which is similar to but separate from regular false flags, which are similar to but separate from false flag hoaxes.
It’s a seldom-used type of false flag, because it takes the longest for the event to unfold, and, well, you know, these bastards do like their lightning fast shock-n-awe events, and those events do cause the most trauma and leave the most scars, but in my opinion, the hybrid false flag is what the globalists and the Deep State are going with this time around with the whole Southern border security crisis/border wall thing.
Said differently, the hybrid false flag is not one single event from one single point in time, such as a mass shooting, but rather, it is a rolled-out, climaxing type of event.
Since the hybrid false flag plays out over time, it is less of an “event” and more of a “crisis”, and unfortunately, most people can’t see it for what it is.
Why is that?
I don’t know.
For I’m no psychologist, but I’m pretty sure that this whole Southern border crisis evokes strong emotions in most people, and when people act based on their emotions rather than on objectivity or even common sense, then reality becomes warped.
So I’ll rephrase my point as a question: Do we have a “crisis” going on right now?
Yes we do.
According to many people in government, the MSM, and unfortunately a large number of those in the “alternative” media, we sure do have a crisis going on right now.
But don’t take ‘Ol Half Dollar’s word for it, see for yourself:
In fact, if you look at the President’s Twitter feed and what he’s been saying all week long, the border wall is the absolute only thing that even matters right now.
Please understand when I say this, and I speak from experience as, among many things, I lived on the border (El Paso, Texas) for many, many years, I lived in Mexico for two years, I have gone to school in Mexico, and I have driven across the Southern border many times, and I’m here to tell you – the “Humanitarian and National Security crisis” is not what we’re being led to believe.
The globalists and the Deep State are creating this crisis, and since it gets the blood boiling and the emotions flaring on all sides, this crisis is the ultimate bait-n-switch.
Furthermore, check this out: Here’s Lindsey Graham urging the wall just yesterday:
People who think Lindsey Graham somehow had a “come to Jesus” moment and is no longer a treasonous warmongering Deep State swamp creature need to pull their heads out of their you-know-whats.
I’m sorry to be the bearer of the obvious, but the corrupt, career Deep State Washington DC Traitor otherwise known as Lindsey Graham did not turn into a good guy all of the sudden all because of his five minutes of WWE theatrics during the Kavanaugh confirmation.
So I’ll say it one last time because it really is that important: The wall will be turned against Americans and used for evil.
I still don’t think the wall will be built, however, and you can read my reason in the post I did about President Trump being the Fall Guy.
But there are deeper questions here – Why the wall, and why now?
The “why the wall” is simple – the wall is the crisis.
If the wall is the crisis, then what is the big change the globalists and Deep State want to shove down our throats this time?
The economic collapse.
In fact, the collapse may have already happened.
The economy may already be dead, only the masses don’t know it yet.
OK, “Hey Half Dollar, you’re all over the place today and kind-of jumbling your words again. Are you saying the economic collapse is already here?”.
Yeah, I realize I’ve jumbled my words terribly, and I apologize in advance.
This wall thing really irks me because so few people can see it for what it really is.
To answer the question, yes, I am saying the collapse is already here.
What are some clues which tell us the collapse is here?
Well, many of the economic data releases and reports from the government are simply not being released or reported:
How convenient of an excuse that we have a government shutdown, right?
Wanna see something else that is surely convenient?
The Commitment of Traders Reports for gold & silver have not been released in weeks, and will not be released for the foreseeable future.
That is to say, unreliable data that is barely relevant by the time it is released will simply not be released at all.
In my opinion, something very, very disturbing is brewing under the surface of the economy, and the more time we are forced to hone-in on the border wall like a laser-guided bomb hones-in on a bunker, the closer we are to the big change that is coming.
Change which happens in an instant once we reach the climax, and the only outcome from the change will be death and destruction.
Lots and lots of rubble.
In other words, this artificially-induced crisis is going to lead to big change in not just America, but in the entire world, and this change is going to blow us up not unlike that bomb blows up the bunker and the unfortunates who happen to be inside of it.
- Stock market crash
- Wealth destroyed
- Massive job losses
- Impoverished millions
- Street protests
- Violent protests
- Civil unrest
- Breakdown of society
- Loss of Freedom and Liberty
- Rounding up of dissidents
- FEMA camps
- Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera
We know how the story ends.
The wall is the false flag.
The wall is the crisis.
The big changes are devastated markets and economic misery on a scale never seen before.
It’ll be economic Hiroshima and financial Nagasaki combined.
With a touch of Fukishima thrown in for some good fun.
Topped off with a cutting-edge, designer pandemic.
Of Biblical proportions.
Because, you know, something has to come out of having USDA facilities, bio-weapons research & development facilities, an insane asylum and a federal prison all within the same small vicinity inside of N.Cackalacky.
After all, everybody has to prove that his or her job matters in the face of a government shutdown.
But I digress.
Back on track.
People think they will be able to see the economic collapse coming.
But if they can’t see the wall for what it is, how would people be able to see the economic collapse?
Until it’s too late?
Seeing the collapse unfolding in real-time will not be like watching a slow moving train wreck.
That is why it is called a “collapse”.
It’s all of the sudden.
It will be more like watching a plane crash.
A plane crash that has no survivors.
Has the plane crashed already?
We’ll know soon enough.
I thought gold would close the week above $1300, and I thought silver would close the week above $16.
I was doubly wrong.
I’m starting to think that next week will be more of the same sideways action, and I’m now looking for the holiday-shortened (MLK) week of the January 21st as the week the next leg higher could take place.
Regardless, the gold-to-silver ratio is still telling us what to do with our fraudulent and Unconstitutional debt-based fiat dollars:
With a move off of the recent lows, the ratio is telling us to go with the money of the people.
Gold looks a lot like palladium in that gold’s consolidation looks to be over time instead of price:
Progress towards the golden cross is being made, and it will soon be the “talk of the town”.
All the geniuses come out when the charts paint a certain picture.
If I’m right about next week, it seems the cartel will want to smash silver below its 200-day moving average:
Silver has stood its ground, however, and I am expecting the white metal to do the same next time around.
Sure, we may lose the 200-day, but I really don’t think the cartel wants to smash silver much lower because I think there is a wave of buyers ready to come in if silver drops below $15.
Palladium is still on fire in spite of gold & silver’s recent “price discovery”:
Palladium is up almost a whopping 59% since the low of $815 on August 16th.
Palladium is showing us that fundamentals do matter, and when there is a shortage of metal, money talks.
Platinum is dancing around its 50-day moving average:
If I’m right about next week, we should see what kind of support platinum has at $800.
Support at $800 should be stout, but since we have markets in which the visible hand of the governments and central banks is clearly visible at all hours of the day, it really wouldn’t surprise me if platinum triple-bottomed.
Crude oil may now begin working on its other shoulder:
I think crude oil will work on the shoulder too, but I was also got my crude oil call wrong last year.
You can be right for 10 months out of the year, but in the end, as Adam Horovitz once said, “it’s not how you play the game, it’s how you win it”.
In the case of the markets, I guess the saying should be modified – “It’s not how you play the game, it’s how you rig it”.
Copper is beginning to coil:
If I’m right about next week, I would expect copper to coil even more, and if that happens, well, that’s why they call those kind of moves “explosive”.
I also think that explosive move will be to the upside.
Let’s take a quick run-down of current events:
- Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern border
- Government shutdown
- Brexit turning into Forgetabrexit
- Middle east tensions rising
- Ongoing trade wars
That’s just a few of the things I read about on the fundamental front.
But what do we have in the stock market?
Not a care in the world:
Twelve days down in a row.
Ever since Stevie said he was comin’ in guns a-blazin’ with his Plunge Protection Team:
Like I said earlier (Monday?), apparently the globalists and the Deep State are not ready for the stock market to come crashing down just yet.
We now understand why too: They need maximum effect that will only be brought about in conjunction with the climax of the Southern US border Humanitarian and National Security crisis.
As such, everything is awesome again in the stock market:
Many unsuspecting people will learn the hard way, yet again, because everybody is being duped again into thinking the good times are ahead of us.
The good times are behind us.
Well, you know, unless you’re into the whole economic collapse/Mad Max thing.
Hey, I’m not going to judge.
By now, people either know what’s coming or they don’t.
If they don’t know what’s coming, then oh well.
Sucks to be them.
For some reason people still seem to think the US dollar is going higher from here:
Now I think we’re going higher from here too, but I don’t think we’re going much higher, and more importantly, I think it will be a sucker’s rally.
I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again – the dollar is going on its 5th year of this bull run.
It’s as if the cartel has been pulling on a rubber band for five years straight, and either they give it some slack, or the band is going to snap.
They don’t want the band to snap.
Yield on the 10-Year Note looks like it is rolling over here:
Speaking of interest rates, I’m proud to say I’m still earning $.01 a month from my bank.
One freaking cent.
Why anybody keeps anything within the system is beyond me?
Actually, it’s not beyond me.
People keep their “money” in the system because they are scared of change.
Most people are scared of change.
Well, they better grow a pair.
And real soon.
Because change is coming.
And change cares not who’s scared.
Nor who is prepared.
It’s only change.
