Can The “RIG” Survive an Economic War?

by Bill Holter, JS Mineset,

I did not plan to write another public article so soon after the last one but today’s topic(s) are very important and very connected in my opinion. I apologize for the length but I can’t make this stuff up, I just try to tie it together . First, we have been hearing the word “rigged” on a daily basis and pertaining to many facets of our life. We hear the word regarding markets, politics (specifically elections), our rule of law and judicial system, and even when it comes to lawmakers and bribery.

Bill Gross formerly of PIMCO, at one point managed the largest pool of money on the planet, he is no fool. I would also believe because of his fame, tenure and reputation, he would not lightly claim that markets are “rigged”. Not only has he claimed this for several months, he now says THE FED “has mastered market manipulation”! Please understand this is a VERY BIG statement on his part as he is (was?) a member of a very exclusive club (and we ain’t in it).

Do you suppose he would risk his reputation and inclusion in “the club” lightly on just a suspicion? Or do you believe he is a man who firmly believes what he says and does so out of a steadfast conscience?

Speaking of “rigged”, there are those out there who will agree that ALL markets are rigged …except of course for gold and silver because “they would never do this” or “central banks could care less” about gold. It was just last week where we saw $1.5 billion worth of gold sold in just seconds …today we witnessed another $4.7 billion dumped all at once. Someone Just Dumped Almost $5 Billion Notional Gold Into The Futures Market These two trades combined represent over 6% of global annual production or about 3 weeks worth. As I have said 20 times before, no one has this amount of gold to sell and no trader who wanted to keep his job would ever sell like this, period. You have again witnessed IN YOUR FACE MANIPULATION!

The argument that all markets are rigged “except” gold and silver is hilarious. The rigging BEGAN in these markets for the simple reason they are the only credible threats and competition to fiat currency, namely the dollar. In order to keep the façade in place, the rigging has spread from market to market. If gold and silver were not suppressed, could we have zero percent interest rates …or the buying power that fiat currencies currently afford …or stocks at many multiples of book value and 20 times +++ earnings? No, we would already be living in a very different world …and one that will certainly arrive when the rigs finally fail!

As for politics, do you truly believe the polls? Isn’t it odd that Donald Trump continues to hold standing room only/lines around the block to get in to rallies …while Hillary draws only a few hundred? Yet the polls do not reflect this dynamic at all? And of course we are being fed horse manure by the press, so stinky that they (the press) themselves are talking about it. Even if you are a far left liberal, doesn’t the “American” in you tell you “something” is wrong regarding the lack of investigation into the Clinton Foundation and the blatantly stupid (and dangerous) actions of conducting government business on unsecure servers? (As a side note, I wonder how the press will react to her hacked e-mails that will surely be dumped?).

Before getting off of politics, I have been saying for quite some time, “if we have elections?” and recently said I believed it to be greater than a coin flip chance we do not have them. Lo and behold, this from a mainstream outlet! Crazy stuff huh?

Even if you only get your news from facebook, you can sense the country is about to explode, left vs. right, racial strife, class strife, religious strife, even gender strife. Would we have an election if a major “terror” event occurred just before the election? Or I guess a better question would be, would a giant FALSE FLAG be enough to implement martial law …and postpone (cancel) the election? I find it hard to believe the mainstream press would ever ask if “the election could be delayed or eliminated”? Have they EVER asked this question publicly before? Are we being “prepped”???

Oh, and one more election related point. We are told that two states’ polling systems have been “hacked” …and that none other than Homeland Security (doesn’t the word “homeland” remind you of Germany a few years back?) will monitor the polls. Boy do I feel better! As soon as I read this one, my first thought was “it’s over”. They have shoved this down our throats, hook line and sinker! If this one flies, we can’t even blame Congress for “passing it so we can see what’s inside”…!

As the title suggests, we are now on the verge of economic WW III. The EU is pressing Apple for back taxes of $14.5 billion. I don’t get it, why now? This has been known for at least 10 years. I can remember John McCain suggesting we lower corporate tax rates or create an amnesty program where U.S. corporations are allowed to bring untaxed revenue back to home at far reduced rates… and that was 8 years ago!   Of course, the next question is “who is next”? We already have hints that McDonald’s and Amazon are in the crosshairs. Is this retribution for the U.S. fining BNP Paribas last year? Is this Europe’s plan to re liquefy their system? Can you imagine what this will do to our financial system should $100’s of billions be claimed and actually paid to the EU? WOW, what a wealth transfer. My next questions are, how will the U.S. react to this? Will this create an all out economic war? A hot war eventually? What will happen to the “rigs” in place on the markets? Will Europe attack our rigs and we attack theirs? Can the rigs survive an economic war?

Lastly, China reportedly just issued the first “SDR bond” in many many years. In Historic Event, China Sells First World Bank SDR-Denominated Bonds In Decades | Zero Hedge If nothing else, this is another step away from the dollar. China will soon be included in the SDR basket, this move looks to me like they are “bringing forth” the SDR and back into the system. It is almost like China is creating a new market, maybe even underwriting it if you will. In no way shape or form can this move be seen as dollar friendly. In fact, I am sure the U.S. did not invite China into the SDR and neither did they give blessing to the SDR bond issuance. I guess a funny question related to the body of this writing would be, how will the U.S. rig the SDR market?

Sadly, the U.S. has painted itself into a very ugly corner. The economic truth doesn’t work so the markets must be painted, bullied, and shackled. As our “rigs” have affected the rest of the world, they are pushing back. In some cases quietly and others quite publicly. The world sees us as “no more truth, no more justice and the American way has become lie, cheat and steal because you can get away with it.” The ugly truth provided from foreigners will expose our financially naked system and leave us as lonely pariahs stuck solo in a corner. Unfortunately, we as citizens will bear the brunt of all the lies piled up over the years as payment for a standard of living that never really was…

Post script: Story broke last night that Deutsche Bank failed to deliver gold, if this is true it is game over. We await clarification as to what really happened and will comment at that point.

Standing watch,

    Wow Bill,

    What a great amount of information in just a few paragraphs.

    As I stated to my wife in the car this morning driving her to work.

    She is closely connected to a US based industry and her contacts there are stating that things are bad in the US right now.

    Demand for her product category is very low.

    I stated to her that the next 30 to 60 days could be very telling and maybe life changing for many. This piece speaks to that in a big way.

      “Demand for her product category is very low.”

      Sorry to hear that, Mike. In most businesses, this is what comes just before a large number of lay-offs. Hope that doesn’t happen to her. Been there, seen that, and don’t care to see it again. :-/

    The announcement of the cargo ship bankruptcy could have devastating effects to many economies.

    I just cannot see major players not stepping in here to get the cargo in these ships released.

    If this was allowed to happen while slipping between the cracks we can likely expect a swift move to rectify or free this cargo.

    If not this is another nail in the coffin so to speak.

    LOOK OUT BELOW. all in my humble opinion

      Super Shemitah Jubilee!

      Eric: 8-25

      “October 1st. The RMB gets included in the SDR. Euro loses 30% mostly. I figure half the dollar index is the euro so look for $1495 Gold around then. $25 Silver. Best guess.”

      Keep Guessing…

  • Eric

    Keeping tabs on me eh? Why don’t you wait til the actual date before discovering how wrong you are?

    What’s wrong with this picture? What do these 2 things have in common?

    2 days ago…

    1 day ago…

    Bye bye Euro. Then Bye bye Dollar.

    It looks like everyone’s favorite dead bank walking, Deutsche Bank can’t deliver gold now! Why are “sophisticated investors” always so fucking stupid and find 1,000,000 reasons why you SHOULD NOT actually own physical items that you can touch? But rather, you should build a long, tenuous, digital link with the shadiest people to have TITLE instead for said items?

    • Eric

      If you don’t hold it, you don’t own it…literally!

      • KRELL427

        Love the last paragraph.
        Our take is slightly different: while we already know that physical delivery at Deutsche Bank appears to have been compromised, according to the Deutsche Boerse response, the ability of any and every other bank in Germany to deliver gold is now likewise questionable. Which begs the question: where is all the physical gold?

    • aa

      Your succinct and well written little gem about the stupidity of “sophisticated investors” really nailed it. Two thumbs way up.

    “As a side note, I wonder how the press will react to her hacked e-mails that will surely be dumped?”

    In the same way that they ALWAYS do, Bill. They will IGNORE any bad news about Hillary, because “That’s not news”. Of course, if the same exact story were to come out about a Repub, it would be a 24/7 scream-a-thon hunt for that person’s political head on a stick.

    “I guess a funny question related to the body of this writing would be, how will the U.S. rig the SDR market?”

    Forget the US. China is no slouch in the rigging-everything department. They were into palace intrigue while the Europeans were still eating each other.

    The bottom line today is this: If something CAN be rigged for the riggers profit, IT WILL BE. Our job is to deal with it, not whine about it. It is what it is. Oddly enough, one can still make money in a rigged market. All one needs to do is recognize that the market is rigged, what the big money is doing, and follow it. Be nimble, though, and GTF outta there before a hot market cools or collapses. By not being greedy and only making a decent profit instead of an outrageous one, it is possible. Many are doing this very thing as we speak.
