Dear Central Bankers: Prepare To Be Swept Away In The Next Wave Of Populism

Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog,

The political moment when the “losers” connect their discontent and decline with central bankers is approaching.

The Ruling Elites’ Chattering Classes still haven’t absorbed the key lesson of the 2016 U.S. presidential election: the percentage of the populace that’s becoming wealthier and more financially secure in the bloated, corrupt, self-serving Imperial status quo is declining and the percentage of the populace that’s increasingly insecure and financially precarious is increasing, and candidates that mouth the usual platitudes in support of the bloated, corrupt, self-serving Imperial status quo lose to those who speak of the failing status quo as a travesty of a mockery of a sham, i.e. a “populist” speaking truth to power.

Donald Trump steered clear of the status quo’s favored platitudes and embraced a bit of populist cant, and so to those who understand that the majority of Americans have been abandoned by America’s hubris-soaked, self-serving managerial / ruling elites, his victory was not entirely surprising.

Just as we’ve reached Peak hubris-soaked, self-serving managerial / ruling Elites, we’ve also reached Peak Central Bank Cargo Cult: from now on the majority that’s been abandoned by the managerial / ruling elites will become increasingly aware that the unprecedented asymmetries of wealth and power that have undermined American social and economic life can be traced directly back to the central bank, the Federal Reserve, which has become the all-powerful Cargo Cult of the global economy.

The same awareness of central bankers’ responsibility for soaring wealth-income inequality and the decline of social mobility is spreading in other nations as well.

Longtime readers are probably tired of the chart below, depicting the incredible expansion of wealth in the already super-wealthy and the stagnation in the prospects of the bottom 95%. But let’s shake off the boiled-frog syndrome and check the temperature of the political water we’re immersed in: It’s getting hotter–a lot hotter.

The ideological rhetoric of the next wave of populism matters less than its intensity. It’s not just possible but increasingly likely that the next populist wave will assume many of the populist positions of the Left, positions which the “progressive” status quo is desperately attempting to co-opt and water down.

The core reality that powers populism Left and Right is the economy no longer works as advertised for the bottom 80%, and by many measures, the bottom 95%. The “conservative” camp generally holds that the “problem” is markets have been throttled by heavy-handed government regulations while “progressives” see private-sector wealth / power as as the problem and “taxing the rich” and redistributing the wealth as the solution.

What neither status quo camp dares mention is the domination of central bankers and the “winners” of their dominance, financiers, global corporations and state-enforced monopolies / cartels. (The losers are of course the rest of us: tax donkeys, debt-serfs, wage slaves, the restive crowd demanding more bread and circuses, etc.)

The political moment when the “losers” connect their discontent and decline with central bankers is approaching. Perhaps the wires will arc in 2020, or maybe it will be 2025; but whatever the timing turns out to be, the all-powerful Cargo Cult of the central bankers will be swept away in a global political convulsion unlike any in memory.

If you harbor any doubts about the demise of the Central Bank Cargo Cult, reflect a bit longer on the meaning of this chart:

Economic Game Theory In Play, Wait For It, Here It Comes

Cabal Freaking Out Because of Trump – Wayne Jett

By Greg Hunter On June 16, 2019

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)

Legal and financial expert Wayne Jett says, “No one in history has ever stood up to the secret cabal running America the way President Trump has.” Signs abound in the mainstream media they are freaking out. Jett says, “They are freaking out because the noose is slipping over the heads of some of them in terms of the prospects of their being tried for treason or for some other heinous crime. There are many of them. The network, I am sorry to say, goes far and deep throughout our society. . . . Many of them are doing all they can to make sure this comes to an end as soon as possible. We have a President who is actually a declared enemy of the forces that have put our Presidents in office or killed them generation after generation well back into the 19th century.”

Jett calls this a “fight to the death” between team Trump and the cabal. Jett says, “This is a death match no question about it, and I am encouraged. Compared to today and where we were in 2012 and 2016. . . . I had considerable confidence that President Trump was going to prevail. I didn’t care what the polls said. . . . There are too just too many indications that our press lies to us in whatever ways are necessary to support the ruling elite because they, in fact, are instruments of the ruling elite. . . . I can’t see how you could have a worse candidate than Hillary Clinton, but Joe Biden may be it. . . . I am optimistic.”

Jett is also an expert on the Federal Reserve. He wrote the popular book called “The Fruits of Graft,” about the Great Depression, that he says was engineered by the cabal on purpose. Jett says they will do it again because the Fed owes way more than it can ever repay. That means the dollar, at some point in the not-so-distant future, will be worthless. Jett explains, “It’s not even on the same meter. It (the Fed) is completely a sham operation, and just like every other fiat currency in history, the dollar as presently designed, is designed to fail. It’s designed to go to zero, and that’s what’s coming. What I think the President is doing is putting that off as much as he can, keeping the Fed from doing that and keeping it rolling until he can get this current account deficit down so we can come out with a gold backed currency. As soon as we get current account deficit more or less in balance, we can have a reset to a gold backed currency that is actually stable and actually designed to deliver value into the pockets of the people.”

So, how does the little guy play this? Jett says, “The key to your financial stability between this side of the chasm and the other side of the chasm is owning metals, owning gold and silver. These are most likely the types of things that will hold their real value. Therefore, on the other side of the chaos of this chasm, when you declare the present currency system has ended . . .I think the President is trying to make the period of uncertainty as short as possible between the time when the old currency dies and the new currency is in place.”

When is this going to happen? Is it before or after the 2020 Election? Jett predicts, “I think it is before the 2020 Election. I don’t think we can make it that long, especially with the global cabal trying to start a world war or trying to have a currency failure right now.”

DMAR Real Estate Market Trends Report | JUN. ’19

DMAR Real Estate Market Trends Report | JUN. ’19
Month of May recorded highest housing inventory in Metro Denver since 2013 and record-breaking average single-family home price.

June 4, 2019

In May, there were 8,789 new listings, up 16.97 and 38.12 percent from the previous month and year, respectively. At month’s end, 6,470 homes went under contract, up 5.65 and 10.5 percent from April and last year, respectively. Notably, the average single-family home price reached a record-breaking $555,482.

“Even with all of those offers written and accepted, we still ended the month with 8,891 homes for sale,” said Jill Schafer, Chair of the DMAR Market Trends Committee and Metro Denver Realtor®. “That’s an important number to note. It’s the highest end-of-month number of active listings since November 2013 when buyers had 9,352 choices.”

For further perspective, inventory in the Denver-area real estate market was at 26,333 active listings in May 2008.

Schafer adds, “The market has been experiencing a drought of new homes for years, so the increase in inventory is a welcome relief for thirsty buyers. Sellers have been experiencing an unprecedented increase in values. Even with the added inventory, prices were still up a bit.”

The average sold price for a single-family home in the 11-county metro area year to date was $534,577 in May, up 1.45 percent from last year. The median home price hit a record-breaking $450,000 for the first time, up 1.12 percent from this point in 2018. The average sold price for condos year to date bumped up 3.11 percent compared to last year to $364,134, and the year-to-date median price topped out at a high of $301,500.

“To get those higher prices, home sellers had their homes on the market a little longer before accepting an offer,” shares Schafer. Year to date, homes were taking an average 32 days to sell compared to 26 days last year. The median days on market jumped from six at this point in each of the past four years, to 11 so far this year.

“There has also been more negotiating,” comments Schafer. “The close-to-list price ratio dropped to 99.35 percent year to date. At this point in the past four years, sellers were getting, on average, more than asking price. Home sellers still have control across the housing price ranges, but a little give and take makes buyers feel better.”

Our monthly report also includes statistics and analyses in its supplemental “Luxury Market Report” (properties sold for $1 million or greater), “Signature Market Report” (properties sold between $750,000 and $999,999), “Premier Market Report” (properties sold between $500,000 and $749,999), and “Classic Market” (properties sold between $300,000 and $499,999). In May 2019, 262 homes sold and closed for $1 million or greater – up 5.22 percent from April and 3.15 percent year over year. The closed dollar volume in the luxury segment year to date was $1.44 billion, up 5 percent from last year.

The highest priced single-family home that sold in May was $4.25 million representing seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 5,782 above ground square feet in Englewood. The highest priced condo sale was $3.35 million representing three bedrooms, four bathrooms and 3,228 above ground square feet in Denver. The listing and selling REALTORS® for both transactions are DMAR members.

From a year-to-date perspective, the number of homes sold in the Luxury Market remained relatively level at 915, up 1.55 percent from last year. While sales in the single-family market decreased year to date by 2.78 percent from 2018, there has been a large jump in condo sales with 110 sold year to date compared to 73 in 2018, an increase of 50.68 percent.

There has not been any significant changes month over month or year over year in terms of price per square foot, outside of the condo total price per square foot metric that significantly jumped from $546 last year to $656 in May of 2019 – an increase of 20.15 percent. Single-family average price per square foot continues to hover around $300, ending May at $297.

Overall, the average days on market in the luxury segment improved by 11 days for a total of 47 days on market. “Home sellers still have a slight upper hand considering the months of inventory, but buyers will have opportunity as well,” said Bryan Facendini, DMAR Market Trends Committee member and Metro Denver REALTOR®.

“Each neighborhood is performing differently; therefore, understanding how each submarket is performing will be important to consumers because some luxury homes could sell quickly, while other submarket luxury homes are under performing; meaning homes are staying on the market longer and garnering lower prices,” comments Facendini.

Greg Hunter: Trump vs Deep State in Historic Battle – Kevin Shipp Video

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com May 29th, 2019

Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says what is going on in Washington D.C. with the “treason” against Trump is unlike anything we have ever faced as a nation. Shipp explains, “This is an historic battle between the President of the United States and what I call the ‘Shadow Government.’ Some call this the ‘Deep State,’ and that includes the CIA, the FBI and the NSA. President Trump is the first President to stand up against this Shadow Government. They have been spying on Trump since he was a presidential candidate. So, this is huge, it’s historic and nothing like this has ever occurred in any western government. . . . The Shadow Government has been controlling Congress, controlling the judiciary and controlling the President of the United States. No one has stood up against them until Donald J. Trump. They did not figure on this, and he is not bound to this Shadow Government or their threats. Trump has got them quaking in their boots because they have been engaged in illegal surveillance. They have been engaged in a false counter-intelligence against the Trump campaign, literally planting spies in the Trump campaign. I can guarantee you they are scrambling like rats trying to get off a ship. Comey points fingers at Clapper, he’s pointing fingers at Comey, there’s Loretta Lynch and on and on. They are scared because if this stuff is declassified, the American people will see what they have done. For some of these people, this amounts to treason. They attempted a coup against a duly elected President of the United States.”

Make no mistake, what happened to President Trump with the “hoax” of Russia collusion was a frame job to try to knock him out of office. Trump has called this “treason,” and when he says this, the mainstream media is silent and won’t report it. Shipp says, “They know it, and they are trying their level best to support these Shadow Government/Deep State players because the media was complicit in this false Russia collusion. There is no way they are going to report on information that will expose their role in it. . . . They shot and they missed, and it was a bad miss because they tipped their hand.”

Shipp says new Attorney General William Barr is the right man for the job of prosecuting treason. Shipp says, “Barr was a former CIA attorney . . . I was skeptical at first, but now I am right behind Barr. I think the fact that Barr was a CIA attorney gives him an inside view. . . . So, Barr has an edge . . . over the CIA and the FBI. He knows how that system works. He knows how they are going to stonewall him. He knows how they are going to use classification to try to conceal what they have done. They got the worst President and the worst Attorney General for them to expose what they are doing both at the same time. Barr has subpoena power, and they are quaking in their boots because this has never happened before. They have never been challenged like this before.”

This is simply a case of spying to get blackmail information against political opponents. It goes back to 2012 and was under the direction of President Obama, according to Shipp. Shipp explains, “This was NSA domestic surveillance, and it’s been going on since before 9/11. It increased after 9/11. What they did, Comey and others like Brennan, they went in and requested information existing already on NSA super computers and used that information to spy on the Trump Campaign. . . . They did spy on Donald Trump, and it was extensive. It was criminal and was existing systems the NSA already had in place. . . . This leads all the way to Barack Obama and, of course, Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton being the blackmailer extraordinaire and Barack Obama. . . . They were using this power to intimidate others and probably to blackmail others . . . that’s exactly what they were doing. . . . They were all engaging in flagrant criminal activity. They all thought the global princess was going to get elected, and all of a sudden—boom. The unthinkable happened for them. Donald Trump was elected, and they freaked out.”
