SD Midweek Update: Not even COMMUNIST CHINA is doing what Trump wants to do to “Make America Great Again”. Totalitarian creep just went to eleven…
WARNING: IF YOU GET EASILY OFFENDED, THEN DO NOT READ THIS ARTICLE AND JUST CLICK THE “BACK” BUTTON NOW.
Those who do not understand that the Border Wall is designed, not to keep people out, but to keep people in, will also not understand why they’re on a Greyhound Bus (train) headed to Wienerschnitzel (Auschwitz) for a nice warm meal (hot shower) compliments of the US Government (Nazis).
Oh, how kind of them.
Prison Border Wall wasn’t bad enough, however, no worries.
Here’s President Trump from yesterday (screenshot in case he deletes the Tweet, which he does from time to time):
The push to totalitarianism, with the flare of a brutal nationalized police force that kills innocent Americans indiscriminately, especially Patriots, is not only getting a heck-uva lot easier to roll-out in ‘Merica, but our rockstar President is also firing up his fan base in support of it.
First, President Trump is flat out lying when he Tweeted that.
Apple IS IN FACT “unlocking phones used by killers, drug dealers and other violent criminal elements”.
And they’ve been doing it for years.
Here’s Apple’s transparency report for the first half of 2019 (red border and yellow highlight added my me):
We’ll get to this in a second.
But first, understand that is but one tiny sliver of one single report, and Apple offers reports going back years:
So again, when President Trump is saying “they refuse”, President Trump is lying.
Back to the First Half, 2019 report:
There are a few take-aways here.
- This is only one type of request – An “emergency request”, and there are many other requests that Apple hands over private information for.
- In the typical “in the name of national security” fashion, anything and everything could be considered an “emergency”, could it not?
- Communist China only made one single emergency request in the first half of 2019, but the US made 243, so not only is Trump lying when he says Apple “refuses”, but Apple unlocked phones for US government agencies hundreds of times in the first half of 2019 alone for just this one single type of request.
- Apple unlocks phones 90% of the time when the government makes an “emergency request”.
Totalitarian creep just went to eleven.
The “lunatic left” won’t know what’s going on until they stuff those poisoned hot dogs from Wienerschnitzel in their pie holes, only to die gurgling seconds later, and the Red Hats cheer it on, thinking they won’t be the victims when they will indeed get a free Greyhound ride to Wienerschnitzel too.
And everybody else who is not part of the Lunatic Left or the Red Hats, as in, the sheeple?
Or shall I say bah?
Because nobody cares.
The gold-to-silver ratio is in the upper 80s:
This latest move is based on silver price weakness, which is good news for stackers and other smart investors who are looking to score free gold at the end of the cycle.
The ratio has been slowly climbing because gold is finding support at $1550:
We’ve filled the gap nicely, and I’m sure all the chart huggers out there are taking about a “cup-n-handle” chart pattern.
The cartel has succeeded in getting silver to turn red year-to-date:
I don’t think there’s much downside below $17.50, however, although I’m sure the cartel wants to paint a drop to the 50-day moving average, which is sitting at $17.34 right now.
Palladium has broken-out above $2100:
I’d be looking for a pullback here, especially if the cartel is able to smash gold & silver.
Platinum has broken out above $1,000:
I still think the cartel is forced to let platinum run somewhat right now because they have to focus time and energy to smashing gold and especially silver.
Above all else in this world, it is silver the cartel fears the most.
Copper is breaking-out nicely above $2.80:
I’ve been saying it for months now, but does anybody still think there’s a “deflation scare” out there?
Crude oil has tagged its 200-day moving average:
I keep hearing lots of chatter among the experts about how commodities “fade” geo-political risk, but that ain’t no dang “fade”.
I wasn’t expecting to be so angry this morning.
Only, I was wondering what Trump has been saying about trade on Twitter, since, well, you know, he’s supposed to sign the best Phase One Trade Deal ever today, so when searching the term “trade” in the Trump Twitter Archive, the Apple Tweet was the last thing Trump said about “trade” that was not a simple Re-Tweet, and he said that about Apple yesterday afternoon.
OK, “Hey Half Dollar, you don’t get it man – this is so President Trump can rid us of sleeper cell terrorists in the United States, but that’s not all because he’s also working to get the Apple cell-phone records of all the Deep State Traitors, so Trump’s Attorney General can unseal the 497,561 sealed indictments, execute the mass arrests, and throw all of the Traitors in GITMO!”.
We’re still on that?
Well since you’ve read this far, I thank you for sticking with this article, so let me offer a piece of advice: When the government offers you a Greyhound Ride, don’t take it.
The US Stock Market his another all-time high yesterday:
This is pretty sick and disgusting, because when they pull the plug on the stock market, who knows how many tens of thousands if not millions will commit suicide after losing everything?
But then again, the Deep State and Globalists get off on that kind of stuff, so to them, it’s no sick and disgusting but self-gratifying and pleasureful.
Of course, they’ve had to keep the VIX in check to keep the markets elevated:
Economic misery and financial ruin will be unleashed on America with spiking volatility.
It looks like yield on the 10-Year Note is ready to start falling again:
Yield has to fall for the US government to be able to service it’s debt and also to destroy the concept of “saving”.
The US Dollar also looks ready to start dropping:
On Monday’s show I asked if a dollar devaluation was part of the Phase One Trade Deal, and since we don’t know the terms of the deal, there is just as much reason to think a devaluation is part of it than there is to think a devaluation is not.
What’s the bottom line as we find ourselves here this beautiful Wednesday in mid-January?
Bringing on maximum pain to the United States requires a brutal US Police State.
As the economy crumbles, the US Police State will be steadily built-up.
The President is singing to his fans, and they just love the tune.
However, they don’t realize the irony as they sing-along.
The total loss of Liberty is now nearly complete.
Soon comes the total loss of Freedom.
The government is in open war.
Not against the “terrorists”.
But We the People.
Gold & silver?
– Half Dollar
