Get Ready for Non-Transitory Inflation: Ten Things About to Shoot Up in Price

by Kerry Lutz
Financial Survival Network

Get ready for non-transitory inflation. 10 things about to shoot up in price.

Electricity In 2020 38% off all natural gas used in the United States went towards generating electricity. There are 1793 gas-powered electric plants in the US. While utilities generally buy most of their natgas through long-term fixed rate contracts, the low spot price that we experienced since 2015 has led to utilities increasing their gas spot purchases and decrease their long-term contracts. With natural gas recently nearing $5.5 per mm btu’s, higher electric costs are baked into the cake. In the past 12 months natural gas prices rose over %130. Assuming a prolonged period of increased gas prices, electricity rates will soon start shooting higher.

China Melts Down and So Does Wall Street, Buy New Appliances Now! with John Rubino

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Today, I have John Rubino on the podcast to update us on all things economy: from real estate to the supply chain, we are seeing a lot of shifts and instabilities that have incurred over time. Evergrande seems to be bleeding over into the rest of China’s immense real estate sector—tampering with the industry as a whole. We also probe into the buying and selling of crypto, and determine that people are less optimistic about it which means we will most likely see an increased interest in gold.

China’s Woes Hit Markets with Nick Santiago (Ep #322)

from Daily Market Wisdom with Nick Santiago

For more than 20 years, Master Trader Nick Santiago has been beating the markets. He’s made some incredible calls along the way and now he’s looking to spread the word. There’s no reason that the average trader should be coming up short. So now we’ve started a daily show to bring you up to date on the latest market developments. Nick will be sharing trades and concepts and discussing current trends.

Today:

1. Markets Under Pressure Today, the major stock indexes are all falling sharply continuing its slide from last week. Remember, the major stock indexes ended sharply lower on Friday and gapped lower today. The news catalyst for the fall is being put on China’s Evergrande, but these markets were long overdue for a pullback. This is going to be an interesting week. We have the all important FOMC announcement on Wednesday. It’s very difficult to see the Fed say anything about a potential taper after today.

2. Gold (GLD) is actually catching a bid today. This is a fear bid as bitcoin and the cryptos are getting hammered. This must be watched closely as the gold chart pattern needs a lot more constructive work before it looks solid again.

Gold Terra Keeps Finding More High-Grade Gold with CEO David Suda

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

We spoke with Gold Terra’s President/CEO David Suda (Ticker Symbols – OTC: YGTFF — TSX-V: YGT) for a sponsor update. The latest drill results were impressive with intersects of 11.2 g/t gold over 4.57 meters and 5.22 g/t over 17.86 meters in a “very strongly altered … portion of the Campbell Shear.” This marks the third drill result since April of this year, all showing high-grade gold. Suda is convinced that he’s onto something big. The adjacent Con mine produced 5 million ounces over its lifetime and he believes that they could easily be sitting on a similar scale deposit.

The current drill results were taken from a property optioned to the company by Newmont. Suda is of the opinion that they’re closely following Gold Terra’s progress. This could bode well for the future.

While the market has generally met this news with indifference, Suda is optimistic that external factors will force the market to again focus on the sector. Gold Terra is trading at a substantial discount to its peers and there is hope that in the coming months, with more drill results on the way, that this gap will narrow dramatically.

from MiningStockEducation.com

Bill Powers visited the world’s highest-grade silver mine (P&P) owned 100% by Aurcana Silver Corp which just started production. The site tour occurred on September 17th, 2021. The Revenue-Virginius mine in Ouray, Colorado, USA is fully-permitted and will be one of the lowest-cost silver producers in the world at a feasibility study projection of only US$8/oz Ag (AISC) after byproduct credits. Aurcana has issued guidance that it expects to grow production up to 8mm to 9.5mm silver ounces per year by 2024 between the RV mine and expected recommencement of production at the fully-permitted Shafter silver mine in Texas.

Crumbling Global Economic House of Cards with Rob Kirby

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Today we have Rob Kirby on the podcast, who talks about how one of the largest and most underreported issues is the volume of trade we’re experiencing in terms of dollar return in the crypto-verse. It seems that cryptos are eating off the dollar’s plate, which means that the crypto portion in international trade is rising…while the relevance of the dollar declines. Tune in to learn about the power of crypto and some of the key distinctions between Bitcoin and Ethereum that put banks and the law profession in an interesting position.

Should We ‘Eat the Rich?’ with Jeffrey Socha

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Should we ‘Eat The Rich?’ It seems that this is not necessarily a viable solution, and today we have Jeffrey Socha on the podcast to break down the new tax proposal for us. While it may seem logical to impose higher taxes on large businesses, same corporations have tactics they will use as a result—tactics that will only hurt consumers and the rest of the economy. Tune in to hear about this interesting phenomenon in light of recent announcements, and to find out where this may put you in terms of taxes.

College Campuses Have the Craziest Covid-19 Restrictions of All

Here’s why that should terrify the rest of us, too.

by Robby Soave
Reason.com

Last week, Brown University implemented strict new COVID-19 mitigation protocols following 82 confirmed positive (including asymptomatic) cases among students.

Until the number of cases decreases, students are forbidden to gather in groups of more than five, whether indoors or outdoors. They are no longer permitted to eat in the cafeteria, and must instead pick up their meals and eat elsewhere, keeping a mask on at all other times. But they can’t go out to eat at bars or restaurants; this is strictly prohibited. The university doesn’t want students to mingle with anyone from outside the campus, but administrators would also prefer if students declined to make new friends among their peers.

“Students are expected to consistently engage with the same small social group, rather than attending or ‘hopping’ among multiple small-group gatherings over the course of a day or short period of time,” according to the university.

“Many People Will Be Arrested” – Evergrande Lured Retail Investors Into Billions Of “Wealth Management Products” With Gucci Bags, Dyson Air Purifiers

from Zero Hedge

In our post detailing how Evergrande became a “too big to fail” anchor of China’s shadow banking system, we noted that a key missing piece in the company’s funding was selling wealth management products – i.e., unregulated “shadow banking” products – to outside investors, as well as its own employees and their families, promising returns up to 13%. It is these WMP investors that are currently besieging the company’s offices across the country in hopes of getting some of their principal back, and which include everyone from paint suppliers to decoration and construction companies. To them, Evergrande owes more than 800 billion yuan ($124 billion) due within one year, while it has only a 10th of that amount of cash on hand. It will have even less once the now officially defaulted company makes priority payments to its banks and creditors.

How Durham Bombshell Made a ‘Birther’ Out of Me

by Jack Cashill
American Thinker

Upon reading special counsel John Durham’s 27-page indictment of attorney Michael Sussman, I found myself asking, “Is there anything Perkins Coie lawyers would not do to keep their Democratic clients in power?” Thanks to Durham, we know they launched a cyberwar against candidate Donald Trump that makes their work on the Steele dossier seem half-hearted. What we need to know is whether their work in producing Barack Obama’s birth certificate was any more legit than these other misadventures.

As to Sussman, he stands accused of lying to the FBI, “to wit, on or about September 19, 2016, the defendant stated to the General Counsel of the FBI that he was not acting on behalf of any client in conveying particular allegations concerning a Presidential candidate, when in truth, and in fact, and as the defendant well knew, he was acting on behalf of specific clients, namely, Tech Executive-I and the Clinton Campaign.”

Wall Street Watchdog, Better Markets, Calls Fed Presidents’ Trading Binge “Pandemic Profiteering” or, Possibly, “Illegal Insider Trading”

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Wall Street on Parade

Fortunately for Americans, the keen-eyed Wall Street watchdog group, Better Markets, is not living in the same alternative reality universe as the cable financial news network, CNBC.

Last Friday, CNBC published a crazy headline regarding Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan trading tens of millions of dollars of individual stocks and S&P 500 futures in 2020 while Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren traded in and out of REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts). The trading occurred despite both men being privy to non-public, market moving information coming from the Federal Reserve, the central bank of the United States. CNBC’s headline read: “After years of being ‘squeaky clean,’ the Federal Reserve is surrounded by controversy.” CNBC was royally roasted on Twitter for its “squeaky clean” fairy tale.

Why Bureaucrats Are Sitting on So Much Money-Losing Real Estate

by Doug French
Mises.org

The very size and scope of the United States federal government is likely something that Ludwig von Mises could not have imagined, despite writing the book which foretold the results of such a behemoth, Bureaucracy. Early on Mises wrote, “Congress has in many instances surrendered the function of legislation to government agencies and commissions, and it has relaxed its budgetary control through the allocation of large appropriations for expenditures, which the Administration has to determine in detail.” That was in 1944.

For instance, the federal government makes the simple process of disposing of government properties into a kafkaesque nightmare. “The federal government has long owned more real estate than it knows what to do with—buildings that sit empty and sites that are underdeveloped—but it must jump through hoops before it can sell its holdings,” writes Jane Margolies for the New York Times. “So surplus properties languish while taxpayers foot the bill for maintenance.”

The Fed is Playing the Biggest Game of Chicken in History

by Avi Gilburt
GoldSeek

Yeah, I know everyone is so certain that inflation is what we will be battling for the foreseeable future. The main reason why many of you are so certain we are battling inflation is because you are seeing prices rise on food and other items for which you shop. But, do rising prices really mean we are dealing with the true economic definition of inflation?

To be honest, I really don’t care what you call it. It makes no difference to me since our analysis tells me when to get in and out of the market. You see, I and many others correctly recognize that the stock market leads the economy. So economic definitions have no bearing upon our forward-looking expectations regarding the stock market. And, I have explained why this is the case in past articles:

Border Patrol Chief Forced Out by Biden Issues Dire Warning About Who is Sneaking Into America

by Ryan Saavedra
Daily Wire

Rodney Scott, the widely praised head of U.S. Border Patrol that Democrat President Joe Biden forced out earlier this year, warned in a letter to Senate leaders that Biden’s disastrous border policies are destroying America’s borders and that bad actors are exploiting the situation.

Scott said that starting on January 20, 2021, he witnessed “the unprecedented seismic shift in border security and immigration policy” that he says “created the current border crisis,” noting that what is happening at the border is a serious national security threat.

Scientists Want to Replace Injections by Turning Plants Into Edible mRNA Vaccines

by Katherine Hamilton
Breitbart.com

Scientists at the University of California-Riverside will be studying how to turn plants into “mRNA vaccine factories,” the school announced last week.

The National Science Foundation (NSF), which is partly funded by the federal government and created by Congress in 1950, awarded the school a $500,000 grant in August. The goal of the study is to find a way “to grow edible plants that carry the same medication as an mRNA vaccine,” WFLA reported on Saturday.

“Ideally, a single plant would produce enough mRNA to vaccinate a single person,”Juan Pablo Giraldo said in a statement. He is an associate professor in UCR’s Department of Botany and Plant Sciences and is leading the research.

The Great Ivermectin Flap Reveals the Tribalism of American Politics

by James E. Hanley
The American Institute for Economic Research

It appears that some Americans are so Red Tribe-identifying that they distrust vaccines that have been taken by tens of millions with few cases of significant side effects, while simultaneously naively trusting non-experts telling them to take a horse dewormer. Some are even taking it prophylactically. As the old saying goes, “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.”

But the problem is not all on their side. Other Americans are so deeply Blue Tribe-identifying that they have obscured the reality of Ivermectin as a human medicine with a wide range of uses. They appear to think – or worse, consciously choose to pretend – that all uses of the drug are in the form of livestock dewormers.

Conservative French Presidential Candidate Warns of “Civil War”

Gang violence in immigrant areas out of control.

by Paul Joseph Watson
Summit News

Conservative presidential candidate Xavier Bertrand warns that France faces the risk of a “civil war” due its problems with gang violence and uncontrolled mass immigration.

Bertrand is president of the Hauts-de-France Regional Council and is currently polling in third behind President Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen ahead of the national election, which will take place in April next year.

“There is today a real risk of civil war,” Bertrand told the Grand Jury program, adding, “The president of the Republic must do everything to avoid it, and this requires above all the end of crimes not being punished. Any sanction must result in a sentence at the end.”

Biden Plans to Take the Covid “Vaccine” Booster on Camera to Prove It’s Safe

by Mac Slavo
SHTF Plan

Joe Biden is planning to take the COVID-19 vaccine booster shot on camera to prove it’s safe, according to his press secretary and personal propagandist, Jen Psaki.

Does anyone actually believe that Biden will get what the rest of us get when he does get a shot on camera? There is no way they can prove to us that what’s in the syringe being injected into Creepy Uncle Joe is the same thing we will all be getting by force.

The booster shot has been approved by the FDA, but only for high-risk patients and the elderly, according to a report by RT. Despite the protestations of Biden’s top medical adviser Anthony Fauci, who insists Americans will need three shots for “full vaccination,” the agency refused to approve Pfizer shot boosters for everyone. However, Biden, the oldest-ever United States president falls into a high-risk group.

Survey Finds More Than Half of U.S. Companies to Impose Vaccine Mandates

At least a third could have ‘no jab, no job’ policies by year’s end

by Steve Watson
Info Wars

A survey conducted by risk management and advisory company Willis Towers Watson has found that more than half of U.S. companies expect to impose COVID vaccine mandates on their employees by the end of the year.

The survey of 1000 companies, employing close to 10 million people, found that 52 percent of employers are planning some form of vaccine mandate for workers.

The figure would be a massive increase on the 21 percent of employers who currently have mandates in place.

[…] The survey also found that almost one-third of employers say they are planning to make full vaccination a requirement to enter the workplace building.

Contagion Fears Begin to Engulf Global Markets – Gold Will Move to Center Stage

from King World News

As contagion fears begin to engulf global markets, today James Turk discussed the crisis and said gold will move to center stage.

Evergrande Crisis, China And The Metal Of Kings

September 20 (King World News) – James Turk: The problems with Chinese real estate giant Evergrande are taking centre stage, Eric, and rightly so. A default on its $300 billion of debt could really knock the markets. But the important question is whether the turmoil already being created is the start of a financial crisis, or just a warning shot over the bow.

There were plenty of warning signs before the 2008 crisis. Two Bear Stearns real estate funds collapsed in May 2007, highlighting the fragility back then, which was followed by the collapse of Northern Rock Bank in England in August 2007.

Today’s Chart: Those Covid Vaccines Are, Um, Different

by John Rubino
Dollar Collapse

The CDC maintains a database called Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) that tracks the problems reported by vaccine recipients. Problems range from a brief headache to sudden death, and reporting is optional, so VAERS is by design incomplete and not always easy to analyze. But the current data do seem a bit odd.

America has been vaccinating adults against seasonal flu and kids against a growing number of things for decades, generating in the process a modest but steady background noise of side effects.

Until this year, when both adverse events and deaths spiked.

“It’s Not the Same Thing”: Jen Psaki Asked Why Migrants Walking Across Border Don’t Have to Show Vaccine Proof

from Zero Hedge

After the earlier Biden-mandated vaccine requirement for federal workers and all armed forces branches, and with the city of D.C. itself now issuing a vaccine mandate for public school student athletes and child care center staffers, a big segment of the US public is questioning: where will it end? After all, even a potential future requirement to show proof of Covid vaccine to merely travel domestically on an airline is still “on the table” as an “option”.

With these stringent and watchful federal, state and local regulations -including masking in some places – being increasingly imposed on American citizens, one might assume at minimum there are vaccine and Covid testing requirements in place for migrants who are now walking across the border, often setting up camps in crowded conditions on the US side of the border. But that would be to assume wrongly, given the following exchange between a Fox White House correspondent and Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki…

Bank Stocks Sell Off On China Evergrande Concerns as Investors Worry About Who Has Exposure to its $300 Billion in Debt

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Wall Street on Parade

Global bank stocks took a bruising today as questions grow as to just how much exposure large financial institutions have to the teetering China Evergrande Group, a real estate development company in China which owes more than $300 billion in debt that it can’t repay. The Dow Jones Industrial Average shed 614.4 points by the closing bell today, or 1.78 percent, while global mega banks were down anywhere from more than 7 percent for foreign banks to more than 3 percent for U.S. mega banks. (See chart below.)

A big question roiling markets is who has exposure as a counterparty to Credit Default Swaps on China Evergrande Group or other troubled Chinese companies. Where there is lack of transparency on such an issue, investors tend to sell first and ask questions later. Many of the China-related ETFs that trade in the U.S. lost 5 percent or more today. The ADRs of Henderson Land Development Co. lost 12.99 percent today. Henderson is another Chinese property developer.

It’s a Fourth Turning: What Did You Expect?

by James Quinn
The Burning Platform

“Reflect on what happens when a terrible winter blizzard strikes. You hear the weather warning but probably fail to act on it. The sky darkens. Then the storm hits with full fury, and the air is a howling whiteness. One by one, your links to the machine age break down. Electricity flickers out, cutting off the TV. Batteries fade, cutting off the radio. Phones go dead. Roads become impossible, and cars get stuck. Food supplies dwindle. Day to day vestiges of modern civilization – bank machines, mutual funds, mass retailers, computers, satellites, airplanes, governments – all recede into irrelevance. Picture yourself and your loved ones in the midst of a howling blizzard that lasts several years. Think about what you would need, who could help you, and why your fate might matter to anybody other than yourself. That is how to plan for a saecular winter. Don’t think you can escape the Fourth Turning. History warns that a Crisis will reshape the basic social and economic environment that you now take for granted.” – The Fourth Turning – Strauss & Howe

[…] I’ve been pondering this Fourth Turning in articles since its spectacular onset in September 2008, with the Wall Street/Federal Reserve initiated global financial implosion. The description above is apt, as this ongoing two-decade long storm gains intensity and our freedoms, liberties and rights are slowly extinguished as the electricity flickers and our modern civilization reverts to a more brutish state of antipathy among competing tribes, based on race, gender, class, party, geographic location, and now medical status.
