Peter Schiff Predicts Resumption Of Dollar Decline, Gold Rally This Week

It’s been a while, but Euro Pacific Capital CEO Peter Schiff added a new entry to The Schiff Report YouTube vlog on Saturday. Schiff, who correctly-called the housing bust and economic crisis last decade, talked about a number of subjects, including his belief that the Federal Reserve has no intention of raising rates in March, “a lot” of dollar selling is coming, and the gold rally will resume. From the video:

The reason the Fed didn’t give a clue that it might be raising rates in March, is because it has no intention of doing so…

I think the trade deficits are going up. I think the budget deficits are going up. Certainly to the extent that we get some tax cuts. We continue to get more government spending. If we get more government spending under Trump on the military, on the border, on infrastructure. Rising trade deficits. Rising budget deficits. Rising inflation. All of this is going to be a big negative for the dollar. And of course, everybody was so loaded up long the dollar, I think the people who own the dollar- there’s a lot of dollar selling that’s coming. And I think the dollar bulls are going to end up losing a lot of money…

Since the beginning of this year the Dow is barely up more than 1 percent. You can contrast that to the price of gold which is up 6 percent so far this year. Look at gold stocks. Gold stocks are up 17 percent as a group so far in 2017. 17 percent. Everybody’s talking about the Dow. No one’s talking about gold stocks. In fact, gold stocks were the number one performing sector last year, by far. Wasn’t even close. And they’re already by far the number one performing sector this year. But nobody really wants to talk about it…

I think we’re going to see a resumption of the dollar decline and gold rally next week…

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke: Mainstream Media Now Democrats’ ‘Propaganda Wing’ As Trump Defends Nation

Let’s turn our attention north of the “Cheddar Curtain” now. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, Jr., appeared on FOX News Saturday morning and really let the mainstream media and opponents of strengthening the borders/homeland security have it. On the sparring between President Trump and the mainstream media, Sheriff Clarke informed FOX & Friends Weekend viewers:

Well, first of all, the mainstream media, The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC- they have become the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party and of leftist ideology. They abandoned their responsibility under the Constitution, their First Amendment protection. And we want them to have First Amendment protection but we don’t want it to be used against people whose political views they don’t agree with or that they oppose. They’re supposed to be a watchdog but instead what they have become, like I said, is an echo chamber for leftist ideology. So I think it’s good because the media has changed. And organizations like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and others do not realize that this is a new media age and every person in the United States now is their own reporter. And that is competition to them as well and they don’t like it.

On President’s Trump’s initiatives to protect the nation’s borders and strengthen homeland security, Clarke said:

First of all, I’m tired of these one-percenters like Mark Zuckerberg and others lecturing us about who we are. I know who I am, and most Americans know who we are. We are a sovereign nation. If you’re going to be a sovereign nation, you have to have borders and you have to protect those borders. Mark Zuckerberg has no idea of who’s coming into this country and what it takes to vet those individuals. I as a law enforcement officer- I’m in my 39th year- we do a lot of vetting of people. I know how it’s done. But you have to have databases with which to compare. So you take a name, someone coming in as a refugee. And we’re not talking about the kids. I’m tired of all this crocodile tears about the kids, the poor kids coming. We’re not talking that. We’re talking about abled-bodied, grown men, fighting-age, that should be back in Syria and back in the Middle East fighting for their country coming over to the United States to spread jihad. So that’s who we’re talking about. But if you don’t have a database, someone gives you a name, and you don’t have a database in Syria, because they don’t have the record systems and the databases like we have with people- you have nothing to compare it to. So they give you a name and you look and there’s nothing there. That doesn’t mean that they’re safe to come in. So Donald Trump is right on this. And I hope that the rest of the people in Washington, D.C., realize that this thing is a mess and we have to get our arms around it. And at least President Donald Trump recognizes that…

What’s interesting is former President Barack Obama said that they were already doing it. So if he said- and they weren’t- but if he said they were already doing it, and now President Donald Trump comes along and says we’re doing it and now these same people who said, “Well, hey, Barack Obama’s taking care of it”- these same people are now being critical of it. The hypocrisy of this is profound. But, President Donald Trump understands that his first obligation is to defend and protect American citizens, and defend and protect America from foreign threats. That is his first and most important obligation. So he is rising up to that. And people should be proud of that. It makes me feel more secure that finally, somebody understands that the defense of this nation is government’s number one priority.

‘Osama Bin Laden’ Demonstrates U.S.-Mexico Border Security A Joke

“‘We strengthened security at the borders so that we could finally stem the tide of illegal immigrants. We put more boots on the ground on the southern border than at any time in our history. And today, illegal crossings are down nearly 80 percent from their peak in 2000.’

President Obama, January 29, 2013

-White House website, August 11, 2014

“Let me tell you something. If the President, or Senator Reid, or anyone else tries to tell you, ‘our borders are secure,’ they are lying to you.”

-James O’Keefe, Project Veritas investigation, August 11, 2014

Some readers probably chuckle when I blog on a regular basis about the continued threat posed by terrorists from outside the United States.

“Al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, and so on and so forth- they’re merely a fabrication of the CIA and the powers-that-be to keep us Americans in line.”

Sorry, I don’t buy that. There’s plenty of people out there beyond our borders pissed at the United States for one reason or another (I witnessed it up-close for the first time in a graffiti-filled city square in Barcelona in 1999), it’s not much of a stretch to think there are numerous entities that would love nothing more than to see America brought to its knees.

And one day, when some group pulls off the most significant terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11, it’s very possible they will have entered the country via the United States-Mexico border.

From James O’Keefe of the 2009 ACORN workers video-fame comes this Project Veritas investigation released earlier today:


“James O’Keefe as Osama bin Laden crosses border from Mexico to US”
YouTube Video

If a terrorist group is looking to sneak assets into the United States, I’m guessing they’ve either done it by now, or they’ll be doing it shortly to take advantage of this border “insecurity.”

Life Imitates Cartoons: Net Migration From Mexico To U.S. Stops, May Have Reversed

I’ll admit it- all I kept thinking about while reading the following was that (Comedy Central) South Park episode “Last of the Meheecans.” D’Vera Cohn, Ana Gonzalez-Barrera, and Jeffrey Passel wrote on the website of the Pew Hispanic Center (a project of the Washington D.C.-based nonpartisan “fact tank” Pew Research Center) yesterday:

The largest wave of immigration in history from a single country to the United States has come to a standstill. After four decades that brought 12 million current immigrants—more than half of whom came illegally—the net migration flow from Mexico to the United States has stopped—and may have reversed, according to a new analysis by the Pew Hispanic Center of multiple government data sets from both countries.

The standstill appears to be the result of many factors, including the weakened U.S. job and housing construction markets, heightened border enforcement, a rise in deportations, the growing dangers associated with illegal border crossings, the long-term decline in Mexico’s birth rates and changing economic conditions in Mexico…

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

Border enforcement, deportations, and dangerous illegal border crossings have been part of the story for a while now. If anything, factor in the violence related to the drug cartels and one might think there’s additional motivation for a Mexican citizen to head north.

So I wonder if the prospective Mexican immigrants aren’t mainly concerned about the “changing economic conditions” going on in “El Norte” and are deciding they’re better off staying put south of the border?

In which case, what does that say about us/U.S.?

You can read the entire report on the Pew Hispanic Center website here.
