We may finally get some answers to the high-level Obama administration’s gun-running scandal dubbed “Fast and Furious.”  The Trump administration is promising to release the documents pertaining to that scandal that were withheld by former Attorney General, Eric Holder. Operation Fast and Furious was the Obama-era operation in coordination with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, […]

Frothy and Anti-Frothy

milesfranklin.com / By Andrew Hoffman / Mar 30, 2017 I just got home, just as the markets were closing with LOL, gold at exactly its 200 week moving average of $1,252/oz; and silver, at $18.20/oz a mere $0.10/oz from its own.  Trust me, the Cartel is not happy; as after yesterday’s farce of a “12:00 cap of […]

Why Is The Cost Of Living So Unaffordable?

Via Charles Hugh-Smith of OfTwoMinds blog, Strip away the centralized power that protects and funds cartels, and prices would plummet. The mainstream narrative is "the problem is low wages." Actually, the problem is the soaring cost of living. If essentials such as healthcare, housing, higher education and government services were as cheap as they once […]

The “Strong Dollar” Catch-22

milesfranklin.com / by Andrew Hoffman / Mar 1, 2017 If anyone claims Precious Metals are not relentlessly suppressed – whilst the “Dow Jones Propaganda Average” is persistently supported, in an increasingly desperate attempt to delay “Economic Mother Nature’s” inevitable arrival – consider gold and silver “trading” since the election.  Let alone, since I published the “12:00 PM EST […]

Why The Cartel Is So (Rightfully) Terrified

milesfranklin.com / by Andrew Hoffman / Feb 27, 2017 No event defines how rapidly America’s “leadership” has declined, then last night’s Academy Awards catastrophe.  At which, one of its most prestigious accounting firms accidentally handed Warren Beatty the wrong “Best Picture” envelope, causing it to initially be awarded to the wrong movie.  Yes, it was a “victimless […]

We Can Only Afford One, So Choose Wisely: Social Security/Medicare, Cartel Cronyism Or Inflation (Central Banking)

Submitted by Charles Hugh-Smith via OfTwoMinds blog, Here's the problem with central banks seeking higher inflation: costs go up but wages don't. It's easy to quantify the annual cost of Social Security/Medicare, and not so easy to calculate the cost of Cartel Cronyism and Central Bank-created inflation. Cartel cronyism is a hidden tax on the […]

I Couldn’t Be Angrier or Less Worried

milesfranklin.com / by Andrew Hoffman / Aug 22, 2016 It’s early Monday morning – in what is typically the slowest volume week of the year, aside from Christmas through New Year’s Eve.  So slow, I have just eight articles in my “horrible headline notes” from the past 48 hours, as the entire Western world is on vacation.  That […]

BASS-ACKWARDS

blog.milesfranklin.com / Andrew Hoffman / June 6th, 2016 It’s Monday morning, and a LOT has occurred since Friday’s impromptu post-NFP audioblog.  Starting with Friday afternoon’s COT, or “Commitment of Traders” report; which, in demonstrating further “commercial” short covering, validated what I said last week– of how the Fed-orchestrated Precious Metals “correction”; based on a blatant lie regarding […]

SCARED HALF TO DEATH

blog.milesfranklin.com / Andrew Hoffman / May 9th, 2016 Last night marked a sad day in the history of America’s dying culture.  After 156 episodes, “The Good Wife” ended its reign as the nation’s top prime-time drama.  For seven years, the show was must-see Sunday night television, in a medium where writing, producing, and performing – like music […]
