In Your Face “Black Swan!”

By bill Holter – Re-Blogged From http://www.Gold-Eagle.com

What happened last Wednesday deserves another look because I believe it marked a huge pivot point and very few are even talking about it.  Last Wednesday the Fed raised rates one quarter of a point but that was not the big story.  The big story was the about face the U.S. did geopolitically!

We saw markets around the world convulse on Thursday and Friday.  All attention has focused on the Fed rate hike which no doubt was a contributor.  How wise was it for the Fed to tighten credit conditions on a system already struggling and burdened with debt?  There is no arguing we have systemically moved from the 2008 crisis which is now widely understood as a “credit event”, into an even more highly levered situation.  The recovery that never was is now met with a central bank’s policy error.

I believe the “tell” on Friday was a weak dollar.  Much of what happened in the markets could have been expected as reaction to the Fed tightening credit conditions …but not a weak dollar.  The meeting between Mr. Lavrov, Mr. Putin and John Kerry far overrides anything the Fed could have done or said in my opinion.  The foreign policy about face where Mr. Assad no longer “needs to go” and Turkey being ordered to withdraw troops from northern Iraq was astonishing!  These statements were followed by Mr. Putin establishing a no fly zone over northern Syria.  In another twist, Turkey still maintains Mr. Assad must go and they are refusing to withdraw troops from Iraq http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-12-19/turkey-blasts-breakthrough-un-resolution-syria-it-lacks-perspective-assad-must-go .  When in your lifetime have you ever seen anything like this?  An “ally”, ANY ALLY publicly denying U.S. will?  We all saw an IN YOUR FACE BLACK SWAN but few have recognized it yet!

Congress Infringes on Due Process: Votes to Allow Obama to Strip You of Right to Travel Without Trial

By Suzanne Hamner – Re-Blogged From http://www.FreedomOutpost.com

Another day, another right lost to the political corruption in Washington. In a move that has garnered almost “no” media attention, the House of Representatives passed HR 237, known as the “FTO (foreign terrorist organization) Passport Revocation Act, which allows the “Obama administration the unilateral power to strip you of your passport and right to travel without a trial or even criminal charges.” This piece of legislation did not receive a “recorded vote” due to the “uncontroversial” support and passed after only 15 minutes of “supposed” debate. For anyone caught up in this “web” wrongly, there is no recourse contained in the legislation to “challenge the status as a non-person involuntarily trapped inside US borders by order of the secretary of state.”

State Department Tramples 1st & 2nd Amendment Rights

By Paul Bedard – Re-Blogged From http://www.washingtonexaminer.com

NRA: Gun blogs, videos, web forums threatened by new Obama regulation.

Commonly used and unregulated internet discussions and videos about guns and ammo could be closed down under rules proposed by the State Department, amounting to a “gag order on firearm-related speech,” the National Rifle Association is warning.

In updating regulations governing international arms sales, State is demanding that anyone who puts technical details about arms and ammo on the web first get the OK from the federal government — or face a fine of up to $1 million and 20 years in jail.
