Gold Prices in 2017 Will Be Lifted by Donald Trump

wallstreetexaminer.com / by Peter Krauth via Money Morning / 

Gold prices in 2017 are off to an exceptional start. After last week’s strong performance, the gold price has answered with an encore this past week.

While stocks, oil, and the dollar endured volatility, gold prices steadily climbed higher throughout the week.

There’s little doubt that the inauguration of Donald Trump has had a lot to do with gold’s strength over the past few weeks. Americans – and much of the rest of the world – know very little about what Trump’s plans are, much less what he will actually do.

He’s made all kinds of noise about tax cuts, import duties, renegotiating or scrapping trade deals, and possibly even aggressive geopolitical stances.

But one of Trump’s concerns is the U.S. dollar. And one recent statement he made on the dollar could start a bull run for gold prices in 2017.

Before we get to that, here’s why the price of gold is up this week…

Gold Prices in 2017 Continue Winning Streak This Week

After spending the previous trading week climbing steadily towards $1,190, the gold price refused to step back.

It ended Friday, Jan. 13, near the important $1,200 mark, closing out the day at $1,197.

Foreign Governments Have Always Tried to Interfere With US Elections

armstrongeconomics.com / by Martin Armstrong /  Jan 21, 2017

Meddling  with public opinion is by no means altering the voting machines or vote tallies. Fake news statements can be countered with truth, but only when our own media is not part of a domestic propaganda action to benefit one side, as was the case with 77% of all news stories anti-Trump and pro-Hillary. The Democrats boycotting the inauguration today are pathetic hypocrites who are angry that their own propaganda conspiracy in mainstream media failed despite all the TV stations and newspapers they influences, such as the New York Times who admitted they were wrong. Words by themselves do not diminish the legitimacy of any election and what the domestic American press and the Democrats did by deliberately ensuring Trump would be the Republican candidate was far more direct manipulation than anything Russia may have done.

Let’s be real here. There is a long history of illegitimate election results. In 1940, Roosevelt wanted to get into the war but the majority of Americans were isolationists.

Chinese, Germans Bidding To Turn Abandoned Nuclear Wasteland Of Chernobyl Into Solar Farm

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Jan 20, 2017 9:50 PM

For 30 years the 1,000 square miles surrounding the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine, Belarus and Russia have lay largely inhabited and remains one of the most radioactively contaminated areas in the world.  But that’s all about to change if a group of German and Chinese investors have their way about it.  According to Ukraine’s Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources, Ostap Semerak, 39 separate entities have applied for permission to install 2 gigawatts worth solar panels on the land that would otherwise lie unutilized for centuries to come.  Per Bloomberg:

Chinese and Germans are among dozens of investors taking Ukraine up on its offer to turn the grounds of one of the world’s worst nuclear disasters into a massive solar park.

Thirteen international investors are among the 39 groups seeking Ukraine permission to install about 2 gigawatts of solar panels inside the radioactive exclusion zone surrounding the defunct Chernobyl nuclear plant, according to Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources Ostap Semerak. Two gigawatts is almost the capacity of two modern nuclear reactors, although atomic power unlike solar works day and night.

National Park Service BTFO: Cucked Agency Ordered to Cease Using Twitter After Mocking Trump Inauguration

ibankcoin.com /  / Jan 21, 2017 

Victim #1: National Park Service

Reason: For being democratic shills on Twitter

Cause of Death: Fucking with the God Emperor on his day of ascension

I can hear the cries of fascism from the social justice warriors of America now. By god, Trump ordered the assholes from the NPS to cease using twitter after the agency retweeted a picture comparing Obama’s crowd to his.

Guess what? In the real world, when you fuck with the boss, there are consequences. The NPS is supposed to be an apolitical agency. Since they’re too incompetent to know that, I surmise the incoming Trump administration would like to make some personnel changes before letting them back into Twitter.

Watching major media commit suicide

Watching major media commit suicide

Notes on the end of the news business as we know it

It’s personal

This article goes to many places. I think you’ll find a place that works for you.

I’ve been investigating and reporting on deep medical fraud for 29 years. I’ve been around the block a few hundred times. I’ve spoken with scientists who work for the government and universities, and the media operatives who support them. I know the game.

If Robert F Kennedy Jr is, indeed, given the green light by President Trump to investigate vaccine safety, he’s going to need a truck and a chain and DOJ threats of prosecution to drag key CDC scientists into the light and elicit specific statements from them.

Even then, the odds are these scientists will keep repeating the party line: vaccines are overwhelmingly safe; they have no connection to autism or other neurological damage; the science is settled.

Kennedy could run up against an organized wall of silence—scientists refusing to speak with him, on the basis that he isn’t qualified to make judgements in their “field.”

In that case, he will need subpoena power, for starters.

Many years ago, I interviewed Jim Warner, a White House policy analyst in the Reagan administration. He had been trying to obtain medical-research information from the federal National Institutes of Health. He told me he was given the absolute cold shoulder: “If ever I’ve been tempted to believe in socialism, science has disabused me of that. These guys [at NIH] assume that it’s their show. They just assume it.”

Arrogance par excellence. Scientists rebuff the White House with a yawn.

Fortunately, Kennedy is a relentless investigator. He understands how science is corrupted and paid for. And the ace in the deck is this: there is already enough evidence in the open record to refute the CDC’s claim of vaccine safety.

Trump has blazed a trail of rejecting major media. As a result of his merciless attacks, press outlets are going mad pushing numerous outlandish fake stories. They’re ripe for further incursions on their territory.

Weekend Edition: Comparing the 1930s and Today, Part I

caseyresearch.com / By Doug Casey / January 21, 2017

Editor’s note: This weekend, we’re featuring a must-read essay from Casey Research founder Doug Casey. Doug says “The Greater Depression” has started…but most people don’t know it because they can neither confront the thought nor understand the differences between this one and the last.

Over the next two days, Doug explains what these differences may look like by comparing the situation today to that of the 1930s. The results don’t look promising…


By Doug Casey, founder, Casey Research

You’ve heard the axiom “History repeats itself.” It does, but never in exactly the same way. To apply the lessons of the past, we must understand the differences of the present.

During the American Revolution, the British came prepared to fight a successful war—but against a European army. Their formations, which gave them devastating firepower, and their red coats, which emphasized their numbers, proved the exact opposite of the tactics needed to fight a guerrilla war.

Before World War I, generals still saw the cavalry as the flower of their armies. Of course, the horse soldiers proved worse than useless in the trenches.

Before World War II, in anticipation of a German attack, the French built the “impenetrable” Maginot Line. History repeated itself and the attack came, but not in the way they expected. Their preparations were useless because the Germans didn’t attempt to penetrate it; they simply went around it, and France was defeated.

The generals don’t prepare for the last war out of perversity or stupidity, but rather because past experience is all they have to go by. Most of them simply don’t know how to interpret that experience. They are correct in preparing for another war but wrong in relying upon what worked in the last one.
