“Our fingers are on the trigger and the missiles are ready to launch, at any moment that the enemy wants to start something against us, we will launch,” Salami told a crowd gathered to commemorate the birth of revered Imam Hussein, according to Iran’ semi-official Mehr News Agency.

Last week on Erik Townsend’s Macrovoices podcast, Jim Grant, storied credit investor and founder of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer, explained the reasoning behind his call that the great secular bond bear market actually began in the aftermath of the UK’s Brexit vote during the summer of 2016 – when Treasury yields touched their all-time lows.
Surprisingly, Grant’s call isn’t rooted in the bold-faced absurdity of Italian junk bonds trading with a zero-handle (although that’s certainly part of it). Rather, Grant explained, a historical analysis reveals that bond yields fluctuate in broad-based multi-generation cycles of different lengths. And given the carte blanche allotted to economics PhDs to “put the cart of asset prices before the horse of enterprise”, the fundamentals are indeed worrisome.
But in this week’s interview, John Mauldin offered a much more sanguine view of the landscape for markets and the global economy.

March 12 (King World News) – Egon von Greyerz: “According to Wikipedia, gambling is the wagering of money (or something of value) on an event with an uncertain outcome. Three elements are required for gambling, consideration, chance, and prize. Thus, you make a bet and if you are lucky you win a prize but you can also lose it all. Gambling has been around for thousands of years and maybe longer. The first 6-sided dice dates back 3000 years. Eventually gambling became more organized as casinos were established. The first well known casino was set up in Venice in the early 1600s…

Ever since the credit and equities crash of 2008, Americans have been bombarded relentlessly with the narrative that our economy is “in recovery”. For some people, simply hearing this ad nauseam is enough to stave off any concerns they may have for the economy. For some of us, however, it’s just not enough. We need concrete data that actually supports the notion, and for years, we have seen none.
In fact, we have heard from officials at the Federal Reserve that the exact opposite is true. They have admitted that the so-called recovery has been fiat driven, and that there is a danger that when the Fed finally stops artificially propping up the economy with constant stimulus and near zero interest rates, the whole farce might come tumbling down.
For example, Richard Fisher, former head of the Dallas Federal Reserve, admitted a few years ago that the U.S. central bank has made its business the manipulation of the stock market to the upside:
What the Fed did — and I was part of that group — is we front-loaded a tremendous market rally, starting (more…)
PANIC is spreading of a fresh war between Russia and the West after a second battalion of deadly surface-to-air missiles were placed on its disputed border.
By Anthony Blair
13th January 2018
The S-400 Triumf air defence missile systems were put on combat duty near the city of Sevastopol, close to the scene of the ongoing civil war in Ukraine.
S-400, also known by its NATO codename of SA-21 “Growler”, has been described by military expert Scott Wolff as “the most capable and lethal long-range air defence missile system on the planet”.
It is capable of destroying airborne targets as far as 250 miles away, and has been used by the Russians as part of their battle against ISIS in Syria.
Green-lighting the missile battalion in the contested region of Crimea, Russian commander Lt Gen Viktor Sevostyanov told local media the deployment was for the security of Crimea.
Local security sources said the lethal missiles were primarily to protect the airspace over Russia’s border with Ukraine.
The news comes as the USS Carney — an American destroyer (more…)
Upcoming OIG Report Likely To Trigger Second Special Counsel; Comey, Lynch And Clinton In Crosshairs
While most of the MSM fixated last week on whether or not President Trump eats McDonald’s in bed while watching Gorilla TV, a flurry of investigative bombshells involving Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, and conduct by the FBI’s top brass during the 2016 election splashed across the headlines. As a quick review:
The DOJ is “taking a fresh look” into the Hillary Clinton email ‘matter’
The FBI has launched a new investigation into the Clinton Foundation the day after the Clinton’s Chappaqua property catches fire
Former FBI Director James Comey’s full Clinton memo was released, revealing felony evidence of changes which “decriminalized” Hillary Clinton’s behavior. Oh, and every one of the memos he leaked to his Cornell professor buddy was classified, per a sworn statement by the FBI’s “chief FOIA officer” in a sworn declaration obtained by Judicial Watch.
The House Intelligence Committee will be granted access to “all remaining investigative documents,” unredacted, along with all witnesses sought per a deal reached between Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein (more…)
Now ‘snowflake’ students are drawing up lists of ‘trigger words’ and demanding books containing them are stripped from university libraries, says higher education minister
Students at some universities have drawn up a list of ‘trigger words’ and demanded books containing them should be removed from the library, Jo Johnson has said.
The universities minister warned institutions they have four months to clamp down on student zealots who restrict free speech on campuses.
The establishment is playing with fire in their attempts to get rid of Trump.
In light of Robert Mueller’s recent move against General Flynn, Alex Jones issues a warning to President Trump that he’s the next target for the deep state, and his removal would end with civil war.
A researcher is warning that the plague outbreak thatâ€™s reached a â€œcrisis pointâ€� in Madagascar could trigger polio. As aid workers are now only focused on the black death, polio has taken a backseat, and some health experts believe that that could be devastating.
Dr. Derek Gatherer from Lancaster University fears aid workers will be so focused on the â€œmedieval diseaseâ€� that they will forget nationwide efforts to prevent polio cases. â€œIt could derail the polio vaccine campaign, which would be a setback for eradication,â€� he told The Daily Mail. â€œIf [the] Madagascan health service is bursting at its seam coping with plague, then getting the polio vaccine programme running to plan will be something of a challenge.â€�
International aid workers are desperately battling to contain the â€œcrisisâ€�, which has prompted 10 nearby African countries to be placed on high alert by the World Health Organization. Nationwide polio (more…)
