BREXIT Vote Postponed?

Prime Minister Theresa May has postponed the final vote on her BREXIT deal, which is a clear admission that she does not believe she can get the unpopular withdrawal agreement through the House of Commons. What is really fascinating is that the computer seems to have forecasted that result. We did not see a major target for the 11th and the main target is next week. All her threats failed to work and our sources say that it would have gone down in such a major defeat that it was questionable whether she could still even remain as Prime Minister it was that bad.

Coldest December on Record in China

China is also experiencing the coldest day record during December 6 below zero C. Snow is falling in Beijing to Shanghai. It has been in the 70s in Abu Dhabi and in Tampa Florida, so the cold is dipping lower and lower across the planet. Temperatures in China have been held under 4 below zero C on only seven December days since 2000. This is the coldest on record so far. The real question becomes when will people start noticing that the summers are dry and short with the winters getting colder?

BREXIT Vote in Parliament

The House of Commons in the British Parliament will vote on Tuesday amid growing calls for the PM to go back to Brussels to renegotiate. Prime Minister Theresa May (PM) could remain in office even if the MPs reject her Brexit plan. The PM has come out and warned Tory rebels that their rejection could lead to a general election, and there was a “very real risk of no Brexit” which would really be far better. The EU will then suddenly witness just how important Britain is from the German car market on down. Britain is the Financial Capital of Europe and that is something Brussels just hates.

The withdrawal deal negotiated between the UK and EU has been endorsed by EU leaders but must also be backed by Parliament if it is to come into force. The whole sticky point is the EU wants a hard border in Ireland to prevent goods from moving with their pound of taxes.

So the votes will take place tomorrow and it looks to be rather interesting, to say the least. The deal May has made ties Britain to the EU forever without any rights whatsoever in the future. Britain will be ruled by Brussels and there really will be no BREXIT deal that the people voted for. May’s deal is being called a “huge step into the unknown.”

The computer has targeted the 11th as a Directional Change, which is the day of the vote. It also appears that the key target week will be that of the 17th with high volatility going into year-end. The fact that May had to be held in contempt to force her to provide the details of what they were to vote own shows clearly it is not a good deal for Britain and that is the only reason to have withheld it.


Clinton Foundation to be Investigated At Last


All good things come to an end and this just may be the beginning of the long last decline and fall of the Clintons and their inherent corruption. The House subcommittee this week will convene a politically charged investigative hearing into the Clinton Foundation. Then President Trump is nominating former Attorney General William Barr to replace Jeff Sessions. Barr has been critical of the Russian investigation which is really pathetic but more importantly, he will pull no punches in investigating the Clintons.

The Democrats will scream and yell and maintain that the Clinton family charity is a true international Messiah saving the world and promoting world peace while advocating a new cold war against Russia for spilling the truth if not start World War III. I find it amazing how the corruption of the mainstream media is so prominent that they push this Trump association with Russia to win the election but refuse to talk about the emails that revealed that Hillary had rigged the election and took over the Democratic Party so she would get the nomination. When you have countries that do not support women’s rights or gay rights donating money to the Clinton Foundation it was obviously for influence, not charity.

The Clinton Foundation is the poster-child for political corruption and tax fraud. What we are about to witness is the start of a political war in the House before the handover to the Democrats in January. It was Donna Brazile, former chair of the Democratic Party, who wrote about how the Clintons took over the Democratic Party and used it for themselves. She wrote:

“So I followed the money. My predecessor, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had not been the most active chair in fundraising at a time when President Barack Obama’s neglect had left the party in significant debt. As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet. It had become dependent on her campaign for survival, for which she expected to wield control of its operations.”

The Hill has reported the shenanigans of the Clintons and the investigation that has been underway regarding the Clinton Foundation. The submission also cites an interview its investigators conducted with Andrew Kessel that quotes the foundation’s longtime chief financial officer as saying he was unable to stop former President Clinton from “commingling” personal business and charitable activities inside the foundation and that he “knows where all the bodies are buried.”

What is at stake is the core of the Democratic Party. Their reliance on the Clinton Foundation has been unprecedented. It was more than just corruption and tax fraud, the Clintons are the ones, not the Russians, who sought to manipulate the entire country for personal gain. Brazile further wrote:

“I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested. I’d had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or so earlier, based on the leaked emails. But who knew if some of them might have been forged? I needed to have solid proof, and so did Bernie.” 

If we look back on April 23, 2015, just two weeks after Hillary Clinton officially declared her presidential campaign, her staff sent out a message on the strategy to manipulate the Republicans into selecting the worse candidate. They included this attachment a “memo for the DNC discussion.”

The memo was addressed to the Democratic National Committee and stated bluntly, “the strategy and goals a potential Hillary Clinton presidential campaign would have regarding the 2016 Republican presidential field.” Here we find that the real conspiracy was Clinton manipulating the Republicans. “Clearly most of what is contained in this memo is work the DNC is already doing. This exercise is intended to put those ideas to paper.”

“Our hope is that the goal of a potential HRC campaign and the DNC would be one-in-the-same: to make whomever the Republicans nominate unpalatable to a majority of the electorate.”

The Clinton strategy was all about manipulating the Republicans to nominate the worst candidate Clinton called for forcing “all Republican candidates to lock themselves into extreme conservative positions that will hurt them in a general election.”

The nonsense published by Newsweek and then withdrawn when they realized that rigging the election FAILED and there would be no Madam President, painted a wonderful woman who rose to the top and was the pillar of society beyond question. It was revealed that the entire dossier on Trump and Russians was funded by Hillary. Previously both John Podesta and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz denied any knowledge of funding for this dossier. Any surprise at that? It was that dossier that began the entire Russian conspiracy and investigation appointing Mueller.

Hillary had presented herself as a role model to little girls as a leader of the feminist movement in all but official name. Hillary Clinton’s campaign spokeswoman, Jennifer Palmieri, in the hacked emails revealed that Palmieri and other Clinton allies’ hold very low opinions of Catholics. Hillary’s staff said Catholics are “severely backwards” and further demeaned them saying they don’t know “what the hell they’re talking about.”

Jerry Oppenheimer reported in his book State of the Union: Inside the Complex Marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton (2000), that the night Bill unexpectedly lost his 1974 Arkansas congressional seat bid, Hillary shrieked at his campaign manager, “you fucking Jew bastard.”

Hillary was so shattered by the loss of her life’s dream to be the first woman president rather than what she could actually do for the country. Hillary refused to appear before her supporters. That was the most devastating thing any candidate had ever done in history. She took the loss so personally, it was just about her and nobody else. In the book Shattered, insiders reported that even President Obama  called her and said: “You need to concede” 

We may now be standing on the threshold of justice. As the Hill reported, the question of whether the Clinton Foundation suffers from corruption and illegalities may be answered: “in 6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.”

The Coming Political Siege Warfare of 2019


As I have warned, the next two years are going to be an outright political siege warfare. Far more damage will be done to the United States and the world economy in this desperate attempt for the Democrats to retake the White House in 2020. Congress will launch its investigation of Trump’s role in Cohen’s plea that Trump told him to pay hush money to the two women about previous affairs. Claims that Cohen sought to influence the election from the shadows is really petty when they could thereby criminally charge all the board members of Goldman Sachs who banned their employees from donating money to Trump, which is also trying to “influence” the election from the shadows. But that is the problem with the law – it is selective prosecution all the time.

Cohen said the payments to an adult film actress and a former Playboy Playmate were made “in order to influence the 2016 presidential election.” Those are clearly words written by the prosecutor. Those payments, prosecutors say, violated 52 U.S. Code § 30101


(A) The term “expenditure” includes—

(i) any purchase, payment, distribution, loan, advance, deposit, or gift of money or anything of value, made by any person for the purpose of influencing any election for Federal office; and
(ii) a written contract, promise, or agreement to make an expenditure.

The money was given to the two women loosely falls in the very broad statute as a “gift” and he signed a “written contract” as well. It was Cohen’s words stating “in order to influence the 2016 presidential election” that makes it a crime. If he went to trial, that would be impossible to prove. The two payments were to Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal $150,000 to keep quiet about an alleged 10-month relationship with Trump and Cohen’s $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels. Cohen could have remained silent.

The theory of how this violated campaign limitations is that the maximum an individual can contribute is $2,700. Since Cohen paid the women, prosecutors made it clear that the payment was a campaign contribution because Cohen was repaid by the Trump Organization after he submitted “sham” invoices for legal work.  Then the question falls to did those in the Trump Organization know they were “sham” invoices? Does that then rise to Trump personally? This is where it takes Cohen to say “Trump directed me to make those payments” in order to impeach Trump. The whole thing is rather strange for Trump would have the power to pardon him. He is clearly cutting that option off by this plea. If what Cohen says is true, Trump conspired to violate campaign finance laws by directing payments to keep the women quiet so as to boost his election prospects. Yet the prosecutors also told the court Cohen tries to save himself by blaming others. That merely clouds the issue and calls into question Cohen’s testimony against Trump.

So they also charged Cohen with tax evasion which would be a different issue. To reduce his time, he has to say the words that the prosecutors tell him that will then implicate Trump as a co-conspirator to a felony. This will give the Democrats the foundation to file an impeachment action regardless of the truth. The trial, however, would be in the Senate. Trump would tend to be the type to go to trial.

To start the impeachment process, there must first be drafted the articles of impeachment. Then the 40 members on the House Judiciary Committee vote over whether to bring them to the full House of Representatives. A simple majority vote is needed, in this case, which means 21 members of Congress voting yay are needed in this phase. The Democrats can do that assuming they all vote party line as usual.

Once the articles make it out of the judiciary committee, the 435 members of the House of Representatives debate the merits of the articles of impeachment. In this phase, a simple majority is needed again to continue the impeachment process, which means 218 representatives would have to vote yay in order to confirm impeachment.

Assuming the Democrats vote along party line as expected, the articles of impeachment will then move to the Senate for a Trial. By the time the process brings the president before the Senate in order to defend himself, the “impeachment” part is done. What occurs then is a procedure that would see the president prosecuted by a group of “managers” from the House of Representatives, while a Supreme Court justice presides over the trial. The Senate then acts as the jury. In order for the president to be removed from office, in this case, it would require a two-thirds vote among the 100 senators or 67 votes. That means, 20 Republicans would have to vote to remove him from office. Bill Clinton was impeached and it went to Trial but there were not enough votes to remove him and he too committed a felony of perjury that was directly himself – not a conspiracy.

Elite Republicans hate Trump because he is an outsider. Nevertheless, will 20 Republicans cross lines and vote to remove Trump from office? That is not very likely given the indirect charge of pay money to two women. The charges from Mueller will have to be more direct to win a Senate Trial to remove Trump. No president has ever been removed. The process will be more directed to cripple Trump for 2020 so the Democrats can seize the White House and reverse everything Trump has done including raising taxes substantially and imposing a Global Warming Tax. The Democrats want to raise taxes on the rich to 60% to 70% like the good old days, with plenty of loopholes to gather political donations for exceptions.

Weather Channel Declares November Coldest in 50 years

The Weather Channel just declared that North America just had its most extensive November snow cover in at least a Half-Century. We really face Global Cooling as this is now the third winter which this is becoming the colder with each passing year. It is serious that the emphasis on Global Warming is distracting society to such an extent that we are making no preparation whatsoever to stockpile food reserves which is what we should be doing. As a former hedge fund manager, the best way to always maintain your performance is to assume you are always wrong. That forces you to have Plan B and Plan C with key lines that when crossed you are compelled to take action. We should be stockpiling food as a HEDGE right now. The worst outcome is the Global Cooling trend is wrong, then you have excess food to sell off. Best case is you survive a downturn.

From a timing perspective, if we see next year get colder than this year, that will CONFIRM this is going to get much worse before it will get warm again and that first uptick may not take place until 2026. The computer is showing a commodity rally will arrive after 2020.

Comey & Lynch Subpoenaed Before Republicans Leave

The Battle is On. The House Republicans issued subpoenas to former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch before the Democrats take control. House Republicans subpoenaed Comey who had previously refused to testify privately and instead asked for a public hearing. Republicans have been investigating the FBI and Justice Department’s decision-making in 2016 and 2017. They are now after the possibility of a Deep State contending that there existed a very anti-Trump bias among senior officials who led the FBI to exonerate Hillary Clinton’s private email server. They are also seeking an investigation into the allegations of Trump campaign connections with Russia. But Democrats claim that the GOP investigation is political as if their’s has not been and it is intended for the 2020 election.

So get ready for the next two years. All we will hear about is this Russian Conspiracy and effectively they will be planting the seeds for war.

Gordian III Æ Sestertii

A lot a people wanted a bronze Roman Sestertius. We sold out of all the issues. The only one I had more of was those of Gordian III. This was an interesting emperor for Gordian III is where we find the last silver denarius to be issued in any quantity. Following his assassination, the dominant silver coin becomes the antoninianus which was valued at twice a denarius. So this effectively becomes a major debasement event so these coins represent the start of the fall of the Roman monetary system.

Germany’s Most Beautiful Policewoman Told to Be a Cop or a Model

One of the clear cultural differences between Europe and the United States is that they even have the “hottest” female police officer – Adrienne Koleszar. That is something they just would not do in the United States. We hold Senate hearings because Janet Jackson’s breast popped out on TV at the Super Bowl. It is interesting that from the outside looking in, America is viewed as being prudish, to put it mildly.  Yet Adrienne’s boss told her she had to choose between being a cop or a model.

I appeared in Dresden but the police who were there to keep the crowds in line certainly did not look like her. The people were very warm and they even handed me a bouquet of flowers at the end of my presentation. Never had that in any other city I have ever made a presentation.
