Putin Says Trump Is “A Smart Man”, Will Adapt To Responsibilities As “Unipolar World Model Fails” / by Tyler Durden / Dec 4, 2016

Following Trump’s phone call on Friday evening with the Taiwan president, which led to scathing response by the US press and diplomatic corps, both of which were shocked to see Trump threaten the “One China” status quo by taking foreign policy matters into his own hands (the same media and diplomats who were just as shocked to see Trump win the presidential election) , on Sunday morning Trump got some words of encouragement from none other than Vladimir Putin, who in an interview with Russian NTV TV, said that Trump is “a clever man” and will quickly adapt to his new responsibilities and new role as president.

“Trump was an entrepreneur and a businessman. He is already a statesman, he is the head of the United States of America, one of the world’s leading countries.”

“The fact that Trump managed to achieve success in business, suggests that he is a smart man,” Putin said in the NTV interview.  “And as he is smart, that means he will fully and quite quickly be aware of a different level of responsibility. We assume that he will be acting this way,” he added.

Putin has spoken previously of his hope that Trump will help restore U.S.-Russia relations, and analysts said he was unlikely to want to dial up anti-Western rhetoric before Trump’s inauguration in January.

“Because he achieved success in business, it suggests that he is a clever man. And if (he is) a clever man, then he will fully and quite quickly understand another level of responsibility. We assume that he will be acting from these positions,” Putin said.


Gold Price Discovery Shifting to Physical Shanghai Gold Exchange as Prices Diverge vs LBMA / By Jason Hamlin / December 2nd, 2016

The launch of the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) was a promising event for gold investors. The exchange provides a new benchmark price for gold bullion with a much higher backing of contracts by actual physical metal. Many hope this new price benchmark will challenge or one day replace the Western price benchmarks that are widely believed to be manipulated.

To underscore the importance of this new pricing center, Craig Hemke of the TF Metals Report said:

This is one of the biggest developments that we’ve seen in the physical market in maybe a hundred years in that for the past 97 years total pricing, let’s call it pricing ability, on the wholesale market has been controlled in London through the twice daily fixes. 

It’s actually priced in the local currency, the yuan. It’s a very big development. It is a natural occurrence in that all of the gold is migrating to the East so therefore the pricing power should be migrating to the East as well. 


Austria Remains a Leftist Pro-EU Paradise for Islamic Radicals as Van Der Bellen Wins Presidential Election / by John Galt / December 4, 2016

As the polls are now closed in Austria, the ORF (Austrian Broadcasting) is reporting that Alexander Van Der Bellen of the Green Party will win the Presidential election which was rescheduled after massive voting irregularities were discovered during the first poll. The results in screen shot above have since been updated in the last 5 minutes by the Austrian newspaper Wiener Zietung with Bellen 53.6% to Hofer’s 46.7%.


Something Strange Is Taking Place In The Mediterranean / Via GEFIRA / Dec 4, 2016

NGOs are smuggling immigrants into Europe on an industrial scale

For two months, using, we have been monitoring the movements of ships owned by a couple of NGOs, and, using data from We have kept track of the daily arrivals of African immigrants in Italy. It turned out we were witness of a big scam and an illegal human traffic operation.

NGOs, smugglers, the mafia in cahoots with the European Union have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities.


5 Questions, Answered about Italy’s Referendum / by Craig Wilson / December 3, 2016

This Sunday, December 4th, Italy will hold a constitutional referendum.

And while this isn’t a referendum to remain or leave the European Union, like the United Kingdom’s referendum in June, it still matters. European markets, the future of trade, the economy and global relations all could shift depending on the outcome.

It behooves you to know what’s happening and what could happen as a result. You’d be forgiven, though, for not understanding what Sunday’s referendum is all about. One of the leading Italian research institutes,Demopolis, reported that nine out of ten Italians have not understood the upcoming referendum on constitutional reform.


What is the Italian Referendum and Why is it Important?

Italy’s referendum will decide on a series of constitutional reforms that would considerably restrict the size and power of one out of the two houses of Italian parliament. This effort was drawn up to reform the country’s endemic corruption and inefficient systems of governing.

Italy’s current Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi, has lobbied strongly for a “yes” vote, which would strengthen the central government, while weakening the regional provinces..  The Prime Minister has flip-flopped on his promise resign if voters in the country reject the referendum – but considerable speculation has indicated made Renzi’s exit still a possibility.



The momentum has shifted in Aleppo this week as the Syrian Army begin to advance, steadily driving out Western and Gulf-backed terrorist fighters under the command of terrorist militants from Al Nusra Front – from their occupied enclaves in Eastern Aleppo. 21WIRE will post continuous ALEPPO UPDATES as we receive information…


These are not images of “dusty boys“like the exploitative images of Omran Daqneesh. They are not recycled images of children being cynically deployed to promote a war that will kill more Syrian children.  These are not fake images, emanating from the NATO & Gulf state multi million dollar-funded, fake first responders, the White Helmets,  carrying out implausible “search and rescue” procedures or filming themselves running aimlessly around the scene of another fakebombing.

This is not another French Foreign Office media production in East Aleppo, generated by the Aleppo Media Centre.

The Election Is On The Verge of Being Stolen: The Globalists’ Three-Pronged Strategy / By Dave Hodges / December 4th, 2016

If you write about controversy long enough, you will eventually hear from all sides. And I have heard from all sides. This may be the most pivotal story I have ever written, or will write.

The 2016 election is on the verge of being stolen and only a scant few are paying attention. I have heard from trolls that have told me that if I know what is good for me, I will back off certain subjects, with this being one of them. Please note, I have created and will continue to create a dead man’s switch on several topic using several sources.

I have also heard from loyal Americans who have alerted me tot he fact that this election is on the verge of being stolen, and in many cases, these readers/listeners have provided proof for this claim.


Focus Shifts toward Europe / by Marc Chandler / December 4, 2016

There were significant moves in interest rates and currencies last month.  The drama was primarily spurred by the solidification of expectations of a Fed hike in the middle of this month and the stimulus promised by President-elect Trump.
After years of falling budget deficits, the prospect for fiscal stimulus by the new President may have forced up long-term yields in any event.  However, the prospect of stimulus while the US economy enjoys trend growth and full employment,  which as a percentage of GDP appears to rival the 2009 stimulus when the US economy was in the throes of a deep economic downturn implies a greater demand for capital than the 1.80% yield on the US 10-year Treasury that prevailed before the election reflected.   Part of the increase in yields is due to an increase in the inflation premia, and partly reflects an increase in the real cost of capital.
At the same time, evidence has accumulated indicating that the inventory and manufacturing-led economic soft patch has been overcome.  Business investment also appears to have bottomed, and the recession in corporate profits have eased.    There is little doubt that the Fed will hike rates for the second time in the cycle in a couple of weeks.  The rise in US yields at both ends of the helped drive a sharp widening of the interest rate differentials.


In Sunday’s “Day Of Reckoning”, Austria Braces For Historic Presidential Election Result / by Tyler Durden / Dec 4, 2016

Six months after a hotly contested presidential election was voided after evidence was found confirming “widespread” voting fraud, Austrians returned to the polls on Sunday in a bitterly fought election re-run which could see the European Union’s first “far-right president” and boost the anti-establishment tide sweeping many countries.


Norbert Hofer of the anti-immigrant Freedom Party (FPOe) said he felt “calm and optimistic” as he cast his ballot in his hometown of Pinkafeld, 100 kilometres south of Vienna. Hofer, 45, hopes to emerge victorious after he narrowly lost to Greens-backed independent candidate Alexander Van der Bellen in a first run-off in May, which was annulled over ballot count breaches.


Why No One Will Even Try to Tame the US Healthcare Monster / by Wolf Richter / December 4, 2016

Though it cannibalizes the rest of the economy.

The numbers, when it comes to healthcare costs in the US, are always stunning, and the report by the Department of Health and Human Services, published by Health Affairs, doesn’t disappoint. In 2015, healthcare spending surged 5.8% to $3.2 trillion: nearly $10,000 for every person in a population of 324 million. Healthcare spending rose from 17.4% of GDP in 2014 to 17.8% in 2015.

The report pointed out a number of reasons behind that surge in spending. But what it didn’t point out is the simple fact that without the surge in healthcare spending, GDP in 2015 would have essentially stalled. And without the secondary industries feeding off the healthcare boom, such as the construction boom of healthcare facilities, GDP would have looked even worse.

Among the components in the report contributing to this overall increase in spending:

  • Spending for hospital care up 5.6%
  • Spending for physician and clinical services up 6.3%
  • Spending for private health insurance up 7.2%
  • Spending for Medicaid up 9.7%
  • Retail prescription drug spending up 9.0%

The Federal Government was the largest spender, footing 29% of the total bill, largely due to the rising age of the population and thus the growing costs of Medicare, and due to rising subsidies for private insurance coverage.


Jim Sinclair-Financial Pressure Cooker Bomb Cooking Now

Greg HunterPublished on Dec 3, 2016

Renowned gold expert Jim Sinclair says, “You have a pressure cooker bomb cooking like the terrorists use. It’s cooking, and it makes gold a storehouse of value and not a currency. It’s just a storehouse of value. It turns it into a savings account. The only one that will work. The only one without a counter-party. The only one that doesn’t need a market that can trade in physical (metal) and huge size physical. China and Russia are not buying gold as some sort of investment. They are buying it as a policy because they see clearly that is no tool left in anybody’s toolbox to fix what the geeks have done. They have killed us, and they have killed themselves. There is one fat shark out there that is now about to experience starvation.”

In closing, Sinclair says, “When it’s all said and done, there will be a catastrophic big bang, and then the only thing that will be left is your savings account. Your savings account is not silver, although it will outperform gold, your savings account is going to be gold. It’s going to happen because all currencies, even the roaring dollar, are falling in terms of being a storehouse of value. Capitalism is finished. I can’t tell you what the next system will be, but capitalism is over because the heart of capitalism is markets. Without markets, you cannot have a capitalistic system—it’s over.”

Turkey Proposes Trade With China, Russia And Iran In Local Currencies / by Tyler Durden / Dec 4, 2016

Forget the “impossible trinity” – Turkey is facing a just as impossible dilemma where it is trying to juggle two things at the same time: attempts to lower interest rates while supporting its currency, and predictably it is failing.

On Friday, the Turkish Lira crashed to record lows, plunging as much as 3.60 against the dollar when Turkish president Erdogan urged banks to lower interest rates because in order to stimulate investment in the economy “there is no other remedy”.


Run on Dallas Pension Fund – Mayor Asks To Suspend Withdrawals / by Martin Armstrong / Dec 4, 2016

The Mayor of Dallas, Mike Rawlings, sent a letter on the 29th asking for an immediate suspension of lump-sum withdrawals from the Dallas Police and Fire Pension Fund. There is a run on the pensions because people are realizing that there will be nothing there. The troubled pension fund will be insolvent by 2028 at the current level. The politicians are banking on a taxpayer bailout to save it.


Thomas Frank : A Very Concise Explanation of Why The Democrats Lost , And Will Keep Losing / BY JESSE / 02 DECEMBER 2016

“This whole ‘red scare’ thing has become so thoroughly ridiculous, so blatantly propagandist and overblown, so pervasively passed around by mainstream media outlets without serious investigation, so obviously picked up off a shelf in ad hoc convenience, and so completely hypocritical by the professional elite, that I am tempted to write it off and forget about it. But I should probably be deeply troubled for other reasons.

It is a sign of the establishment going further off the deep end, and further dropping its pretenses. It is a sign of a desperate elite that will say anything, do anything, and risk everything to control the narrative and protect itself.

We are descending into farce. Deeply dangerous farce.”

Reader M. M.

This is a short video from Thomas Frank below.  I have included two more short videos that are optional.

Every pundit who is grinding their axes about the various forces that unjustly took the election from Hillary needs to listen to this.

Thomas Frank is absolutely right. Everyone who had their eyes open could see this loss by the Democrats coming, or at the least a much closer race than expected.   Donald Trump certainly saw it, and used it for his advantage.


In Tweetstorm, Trump Threatens “Retribution” For Companies That Leave The US / by Tyler Durden / Dec 4, 2016

President-elect Donald Trump fired off Sunday morning with a Tweetstorm (after again complaining about the “totally biased, not funny ” Saturday Night Live), and in a series of six tweets threatened heavy taxes as “retribution” for U.S. companies that move their business operations overseas, fire US workers and still try to sell their product to Americans. Trump vowed he would slap a 35% tax on products sold inside the U.S. by any business that fired American workers and built a new factory or plant in another country.

The president-elect tweeted that his administration will “substantially reduce taxes and regulations on businesses. But any business that leaves our country for another country,” he added, “fires its employees, builds a new factory or plant in the other country, and then thinks it will sell its product back into the U.S. ……without retribution or consequence, is WRONG!”

 Trump said there will be a 35 percent tax on the country’s “soon to be strong border” for companies that leave and then want to sell their products back to U.S. consumers. “This tax will make leaving financially difficult, but…..these companies are able to move between all 50 states, with no tax or tariff being charged,” the president-elect tweeted.

“Please be forewarned prior to making a very expensive mistake! THE UNITED STATES IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS.”

Trump last week reached a deal with Carrier to keep about 1,000 factory jobs in Indiana that were slated to move to Mexico. On Friday night, we hinted that Rexnord, which is planning to move 300 jobs from Indiana to Mexico, is in his sights next.


Whirlybird Janet, on December 14th, Will Be In A Very, Very “Hot Seat” / by Andrew Hoffman / Dec 3, 2016

It’s Friday night, after another week of financial market ignominy has passed; fortunately, without further damage to those holding REAL money. Which fortunately, is likely to be extremely limited going forward, given how low Precious Metal “valuations” have been driven, amidst the most bullish fundamental environment imaginable. Heck, whilst the paper gold price has been mercilessly attacked – as countless fiat currencies crash, amidst an environment of unprecedented economic and political instability – physical demand has exploded.

To wit, physical gold is trading around $1,700/oz in India; whilst Chinese physical premiums have surged to their highest level since April 2013’s “Alternative Currencies Destruction” raid; which, I might add, caused May 2013 to be Miles Franklin’s best ever month. To that end, yesterday was the single strongest day of Shanghai Exchange physical gold offtake all year; and November, the year’s strongest month for U.S. Mint gold Eagle sales – surpassing…drum roll please…October, which saw a dramatic demand surge following the Cartel’s blatant October 4th attack, just after China’s markets closed for the “Golden Week” holiday.

In other words, just as I espoused in this week’s three podcasts that I have NEVER witnessed such disjointed, illogical “markets,” I have NEVER seen Precious Metal prices dissociate so egregiously from not only political, economic, and monetary fundamentals, but actual physical demand. Case in point, the “Dow Jones Propaganda Average”; which, in the last three days alone, had the exact same “dead ringer” trading pattern – despite surging interest rates; a punk “jobs” report; and the NASDAQ plunging 110 points.

“Meanwhile In Europe…” – The Big Day Arrives / by Tyler Durden / Dec 3, 2016

Less than a month after the “shocking” election of Donald Trump as US president, the world prepares for another day of political shockwaves, this time out of Europe, when on Sunday all eyes will be on Italy and, to a slightly lesser extent, Austria.

Or, as Bank of America puts it “Meanwhile in Europe…”


As we have previewed on various occasions (most recently in Friday’s extensive “Everything You Need To Know About The Italian Referendum & Should Be Afraid To Ask“), in a few short hours, Italy will vote on a constitutional reform referendum. While we urge readers to skim the in depth “walk thru“, here is a simplified version of what happens after the likely “No” vote tomorrow.


China gold premiums near 3-year high while cash crunch curbs Indian demand / By Sethuraman N.R. and Rajendra Jadhav / Friday, December 2, 2016

Gold premiums in China held near three-year highs this week amid limited supply of the precious metal, with traders saying Beijing was restricting imports, while prices in India swung to a discount as a severe cash crunch dampened appetite.

The import curbs may be part of China’s efforts to limit outflows of the yuan after the currency’s slide to its weakest in more than eight years, traders say. China allows only 15 banks to import gold, including three foreign lenders.

“There is severe restriction on the banks’ quota to import gold into China. Each has to justify their need,” a Hong Kong-based banker said.

Gold was sold in China at about $24 an ounce above the international spot benchmark this week. Premiums went as high as $30 last week, the most since January 2014, according to Thomson Reuters data. …

A Visual History Of Population In America / by Tyler Durden / Dec 3, 2016

You’ve likely seen the population density map of the United States in one form or another. A lot of people per square mile reside in big cities, fewer people reside in suburban areas, and a lot fewer people reside in rural areas.

But as’s Nathan Yau explains, cities weren’t always cities though. Rural wasn’t always rural. If you look at people per square mile over a couple of centuries, you get a better idea of how the country developed.


Trump: “Companies are not going to leave the United States anymore without consequences” / GSBTC / DECEMBER 2, 2016

“Companies are not going to leave the United States anymore without consequences. Not going to happen. It’s not going to happen, I’ll tell you right now,” Trump said on Thursday at a rally in Indiana as he boasted about the job’s he’d saved at Carrier, a company that purportedly planned to go to move 2,100 jobs to Mexico.

For several years, US citizens have been expatriating at a rapidly increasing rate. The IRS has raised the fee to expatriate 422% twice in recent years.

Donald Trump promised during the election to keep Carrier jobs in the US, and yesterday boasted about his technically unfinished deal to keep 1,100 Carrier jobs in Indiana.

Thanks to a recent speech (what some have termed the worst economic speech by a US politician in decades), we now have a clearer vision of how President-elect Trump plans to “Make America Great Again.”


Every Household in California Owes $93,000 to Pay for State Pensions / by Martin Armstrong / Dec 4, 2016 

Stanford University has been tracking the cost of pensions in California. So while there is a movement starting to separate from the United States especially since they wanted Hillary, California will soon fall on its face and then will be begging Washington for a handout. The real amount owed by every household in California to cover state pensions jumped to $93,000 in 2015 up from $77,700 per household in 2014.
