Inflation is Theme for 2018 – Gregory Mannarino

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

Analyst/trader Gregory Mannarino is not bullish on the US dollar, and that should worry the man on the street. Mannarino explains, “Inflation is going to be the theme of 2018.  How do we know this is going to be the case?  Let’s look at what happened to the dollar last year. . . . The dollar got melted down last year, and this trajectory has been going on for decades.  It’s just getting progressively worse, and it’s going to continue this year.  It’s amazing to me to think that anyone thinks the dollar is going to get stronger from here.  President Trump wants a weak dollar.  He wants to keep the dollar low in relation to other currencies. . . . The weaker dollar is stock market positive.”

On the ever expanding debt, Mannarino says, “Central banks have to continue supporting the markets by printing more cash out of thin air and inflating bubbles even worse. The debt bubble and deficits are going to get worse, and there’s no way out.  So, this is stock market positive. Distortions are getting worse, and valuations are getting more distorted than they already are. . . .  The whole system is so twisted and so rigged, every aspect is fake. . . Everything is going to inflate.  That includes the market, that includes debt, that includes deficits, and that includes distortions that will inflate and get worse until we hit that moment this all smacks up against a wall.”

In closing, Mannarino says, “The deficits and debt are going to explode higher. World central banks are going to inflate.  They are going to kill their currencies.  This is why you have been seeing the rise in crypto currencies.  Everywhere you want to look, the arrows are pointing towards inflation.  Be your own central bank, and bet against the debt and own real stuff.”

    Allstate Insurance just raised their (auto) insurance premiums 8% where I live (CA). So, there is your inflation rate. Wait….. The FED does not count it, neither does the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The problem here, as I see it, is there is no single “inflation rate” for everything but variability and exceptions to the rule.

    Thanks Greg!

    I’m afraid to say that the imminent financial meltdown and horrific aftermath is worse than I could ever imagine.
    This systematic shift in power is scripted so well that most people, even to this day, can’t see it for what it is and what is about to happen.
    2009-2013, I thought we were in big trouble.
    2013-2017, I was in complete shock.
    2018 – onward = I know we are Doomed.

      One in five Government employees makes over $100,000 a year. Anyone else is nothing but a slave forced to support them. These people are part of the deep state and will never do anything to jeopardize their paycheck to help their fellow man who can’t find a job and is losing everything. Throw in the Jewish banking cartel which has been doing nothing to create jobs even back in the late 70’s and no wonder there is no hope. The whole system is so far out of whack and corrupt that it needs to be destroyed before there is any hope to start anew. Russia, China, and the rest of the BRICS’s know this so they are distancing themselves from the US and it’s allies so they don’t get totally engulfed in the catastrophe. I can tell you that Russia can grow enough food to feed it’s people and is totally prepared for war. Russia and China are a perfect match for each other to work together and the things they are doing in Russia are unbelievable.

    Inflate or die has always been the mantra of the FED in their response to economic problems.
    This time around the FED will be behind the curve when the recession (officially) strikes. Interest rates will be eased to counter the effects of inflation…albeit too late……but unlike previous cycles….they won’t be cutting 500bps……unless they push rates into Negative territory. By this time….the created inflation will be well outside of their target.
    Greg is correct…All things financial have and will continue to experience ongoing price appreciation. Fundamentals and markets do not exist and haven’t since the GFC.
    The global financial system has devolved into a CASINO. Devalued fiat….is a dangerous medium that is used for price determination.
    The FEDS response (inflation) and the resultant consequences, inevitably will crush mainstream….destroy the middle class…..and ultimately leaves the issue of DEBT unresolved.
    The population continue to be lied to. The truth being conveniently hidden. The propaganda machine is working full throttle. Society is progressively degenerating.
    The US will face an Economic War …the likes of which it has never experienced. Those who have been charged with safeguarding the financial system….will ….according to future history books…..be the ultimate destructors….their names written in infamy.

    • Silence is Golden

      Jim Rickards recently posted the following comments …..”Greenspan left rates too low for too long and got a monstrous bubble in residential real estate that led the financial world to the brink of total collapse in 2008″…….”Bernanke and Yellen also left rates too low for too long. They should have started rate and balance sheet normalization in 2010 at the early stages of the current expansion when the economy could have borne it (albeit without Dow 25,000). They didn’t”……..”In the fullness of time, this will be viewed as the greatest blunder in the history of central banking”….. “the Fed’s capacity to cut rates is only 1.25%”…….”conundrum of how central banks unwind easy money without causing a recession (or worse) is just one small part of a risky mosaic”……”A war is coming”.
      Smart Man !!

      I totally agree with you.
      It is great to hear your perspective from up there….I think you see the West’s degeneration very clearly….you are no longer caught up and disorientated amongst the trees….you look from afar….you can see the wood….that is the gigantic mess of the Western establishment system.

      Trump’s incoherent foreign policy is accelerating the Economic war you make reference to. To quote PCR from the below link who also happens to agree with you Allen….

      ” Trump and Haley are the type of loudmouths who are likely to break Washington’s power and influence over the world. They “take names,” admit that they bribe foreign leaders, and issue insane threats. If this doesn’t wake up the rest of the world, nothing will.”

      Best wishes and seasons greetings from the south seas.

      Disclaimer….as alarming as current US foreign policy is, it pales in comparison compared to the complete disaster it would have been under Hitlery.

        Greg/Wders

        It is exactly 2 years today since I wrote the below short essay.
        As sad as the message was then, it is even more tragic today as humanity has not improved the situation one iota…in fact we are well on its way to the complete destruction of another ME state [Yemen] and have our sights firmly fixed on another [Iran] .

        This is what I wrote:

        My rant for the month….Western Hegemony in the Middle East

        The killing and the violence has been engineered and made infinitely worse by western imperialists drawing arbitrary lines on a map of a huge empire that was essentially tribal in its original demarcation.

        The motivation for this division was out of cynical greed and hegemony, not humanitarianism. It seems that the powers that be were well aware that this would cause perpetual chaos in the region but perhaps even they underestimated the scale of the bedlam it would cause and the endless opportunities it would give them to interfere, control and thieve resources, not to mention gain huge profits from the warfare and the arm sales. As an added bonus it would give them the working model to use in other geographical regions of the globe.

        If there was any sign at all that the region was becoming too peaceful, stories would be made up about how bad certain leaders and regimes were, and this would give cause and opportunity for even more meddling and warfare. To add to the subterfuge, proxy armies were used and at times even created locally by recruiting, funding, training and equipping local thugs, criminals and disenfranchised groups of individuals. When these groups grow out of control, as they inevitably do, they by design add to the mayhem and the chaos.
        People in high places in the west like US secretary of defense Ashton Carter call this “unintended consequences”….
        ….Yes, and in real life, I’m actually little red riding hood!

        The problem now is the word is out. As slow as they are at joining the dots the Europeans now realise that they have been pathetically complicit in creating the worst refugee crises in the history of mankind on their own doorstep. It is finally dawning on them that they too have spawned this crisis and now see that it is wrecking their society both financially and socially. It has become apparent that there really is no solution to this humanitarian tragedy because of the sheer scale of dislocation of the ME population.

        Euro Mainstreet is starting to see now that the ringleader of this disgraceful behaviour is geographically so distanced that their downside, by comparison, is almost non-existent yet they get to enjoy the largest spoils of resource looting and the profit from arms sales. Indeed, it is becoming apparent that when the US is not seeing enough reaction blowback on a regular basis they resort to staging events that they can use to vilify entities in the ME. The cold-blooded murder of their own citizens is casually and irresponsibly written off as collateral cost in this monumental business of hegemony.

        The big problem now for the AAA [Anglo American Axis] is that the US and its Nato partners in crime, continue with their proxy wars and looting both in Syria and Yemen right in the middle of what is in effect the greatest refugee crises in the history of mankind. Their agenda is being exposed and Russia’s sudden involvement and dramatic progress in fighting IS should be profoundly embarrassing for the west.

        Western leaders are being exposed as treasonous criminals for their compliance in letting this situation devolve to this level. The leader of Turkey a G20, Nato member, and would be if they could be Euro member is completely complicit in this ME subterfuge and has now been shown to be lining his own family’s pockets by actually trading with and funding what he pretends to be the enemy. What an absolute disgrace for a member of this western alliance.

        Hmmmm…..but then again isn’t this how a lot of this group behaves? The real difference is really only how blatant and arrogant they are in their involvement and their effectiveness in hiding their activities.

            Greg

            “Takes two sides for peace.”….too true…..or perhaps three?

            But do you notice Greg that when you look around all of the global skirmishes [whether by proxy or by direct involvement] in the last 70 years, there is almost always one common denominator….ie Washington.

            PCR in his latest essay wrote….

            “The entirety of the Western World is devoid of intelligent political leadership. This leaves countries such as Russia, China and Iran with the challenge of preserving life on earth as the Western World pushes humanity toward Armageddon.”

            I think Ross Ashcroft summed it all up in a few paragraphs probably better than anyone I know….I quote;

            “Revolutions are philosophical.
            Getting organised and preventing the culprits camouflaging the real problem means it’s possible to embark on a bloodless revolution against the violent organisations
            and barbaric leaders who’ve trashed the economy.

            Central banking, rigged capitalism, land speculation, income tax and neo-classical economics have corporatized democracy, stunted progress, perverted the course of human destiny and compromised the future of this planet. If these issues aren’t addressed then the next implosion will be on a scale unimagined.

            Whatever the propaganda at the beginning of the 21st-century central bank’s unregulated cheap money, pumped up land values, which created an unsustainable asset bubble in a world that once again operates a rigged tax system that enriches privilege.

            Neo-classical economics has ruined life for the bottom billions, tempted everyone into intergenerational conflict and created massive suffering that has no limits.

            Human beings go mad in crowds and come to their senses slowly and individually. History is littered with examples of people who threw themselves off the yoke of oppression to adopt radical change, only to end up with popular new rulers that maintained the status quo.

            To really understand something is to be liberated from it. Dedicating oneself to a great cause, taking responsibility and gaining self-knowledge is the essence of being human. A predatory capitalist’s truest enemy and humanities greatest ally is the self-educated individual who has read, understood, delays their gratification, and walks around with their eyes open.”

            – Ross Ashcroft – quote from the award winning documentary “FOUR HORSEMEN”

            Cheers and regards

              “…..self-educated …..and open eyes”…..
              this clarifies and cuts through the essence of the anti-establishment movement. Moreover it brings empowerment to those that choose not to be slaves to their system.

    Another fine episode from Greg squared. You da man squared!!

  9. Barn Cat

    The Fed creates a trillion new dollars every year just to fund the deficit. It lends it to the big banks at artificially low interest rates. They buy the bonds. There could be much more money printing that we don’t know about. Hyperinflation is a 100% mathematical certainty. The only question is when. America will become the new Venezuela.
    We’re going to see parts of the world abandon the dollar for trade. China is starting to sell oil futures denominated in yuan. Saudi Arabia will sell oil to China for yuan then buy gold on the Shanghai Exchange. Other countries will follow suit. So will other industries. Jim Willie talks about a dual universe where the east trades in yuan and gold while the west trades in the dollar.

  10. Paul ...

    All the Central Banks in the world (including the US) will continue to bail out their sinking monetary ship with printed counterfeit paper … buy gold and silver as this will be inflationary … but the reserve status of the US dollar can be kept … if the Fed pays a higher interest rate on its Treasuries then other governments are offering on their bonds (using QE Unwind) … another thing that will impart confidence and strength to the US dollar is Trump taking “show case actions” against corruption and treason by arresting current and former high government officials … look at how Iran is building confidence in the world (by rejecting nuclear weapons and arresting its former President (Mohmoud Ahmadinejad) for treasonous actions against the sitting Government (next they should “outlaw the requirement” for women to wear a burka) … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-06/irans-former-president-mahmoud-ahmadinejad-arrested-inciting-unrest-report

    Greg,
    Mannarino is my favorite guest you have on. He is great and has such passion and compassion for the “average” person. I believe he is spot on in his analysis of what is happening today. We are only given so much information to work with and only as much as the elite want us to know and mix that with the lies we are told and it is hard for the average person to have time to decipher it all with just trying to keep our heads above water on a daily basis. I am so thankful for people like Gregory Mannarino who takes his own personnel time to share his knowledge of finance and try to help more people understand what is ACTUALLY taking place now in real time. And HE DOES IT FOR FREE !!!.
    WOW !!! Thank you both and always look forward to the interviews with you both.

  12. Tad

    Greg Mannarino’s repatriation-inflation-hyperinflation scenario has merit, though I don’t think he fully qualified his thoughts.

    Yes, if banks actually lend out the increased billions to unqualified hoem loan applicants and on questionable public-private infrastructure project, then yes, inflation without a doubt.

    Those funds will go toward propping up markets, without a doubt.

    I could make a cynical case that these funds could be used for massive bank bail-ins when that critical moment arrives.

    Return of capital versus return on capital?

    The initial moment in lengthy careers for a Chairman, CEO, and CFO, the long view (10-15 years) may strike their collective thinking. Should they have dollars and euros in European and South American banks where the economic conditions are problematic, and they know it.

    Should they utilize a business plan that considers a country with almost no external debt and low exposure to US Treasuries.
    One that has prospects in OBOR and a currency that could be gold backed when the crisis hits.

    Yes, because they actually have it. They also don’t possess overbuilt residential real estate like China.

    It really is a confidence game, in essence. Firstly, Russia doesn’t want your dollars. Secondly, they’ll thoroughly vet for Langley types within an American company. This assumes they’ll want the hassle of dealing with corporate America, on any significant scale.

    Not a lot of sound, fundamental choices: stock buybacks; compete with Chinese investors for American agricultural and commercial farm land; substantial quantities of gold and silver than can’t be readily sourced or safely stored from prying government surveillance.

    These executives must be on pins and needles.

  13. Mr. Lee

    Thanks for brining in GM at the start of the year Mr. Hunter. Great interview, love GM’s insights to the inflation quagmire all of us are about to face. Although gold has gone up in price over the last quarter of 2017, still a bargain and silver even more so. Agree with GM, be your own central bank. Remember PMs are a store of value, real money not currency that is subject in to inflation/deflation by those who produce it.

    Happy New Year to the USAWD community.

    The left is finding it hard to make Trump into “a loony tune” as the economy keeps roaring ahead … but Trump should not be so easily duped into helping to promote the “crazy image” the left is trying to put on his head … on July 6, 2017 Trump stated: “I will never use energy to coerce nations” … then recently Trump goes ahead and imposes an “energy embargo” on N.Korea?? … we know Roosevelt imposed an oil embargo on Japan to make the Japanese attack us at Pearl Harbor … so is Trump being duped into following the same crazy strategy? … the Russians and Chinese (to prevent World War III ) are now supplying N. Korea with oil … the Deep State is mad as hell at the Chinese and Russians for promoting peace over war by supplying N. Korea with oil … how dare they try to save the lives of their young men and women in a nuclear battle “protecting their ally” … when “a majority of Americans” have no problem instigating a nuclear first strike and fighting and dying for “crazed warmongering neocons” so as to help them make even more immoral war machine profits!!

    Hi Greg squared!

    Gregory is right as all things are converging so the 4 horsemen can accomplish their tasks as men on earth are led to fulfill each one:
    Revelation 6:1-2 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, Come. (2) And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he that sat thereon had a bow; and there was given unto him a crown: and he came forth conquering, and to conquer.
    The white horse is not what most in the church expect:
    http://www.ubm1.org/?page=whitehorse
    The red horse is war spreading globally as Gregory is seeing:
    Revelation 6:3-4 And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, Come. (4) And another horse came forth, a red horse: and to him that sat thereon it was given to take peace from the earth, and that they should slay one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
    The black horse is inflation spreading globally as Gregory is seeing:
    Revelation 6:5-6 And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, Come. And I saw, and behold, a black horse; and he that sat thereon had a balance in his hand. (6) And I heard as it were a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, A measure of wheat for a shilling, and three measures of barley for a shilling; and the oil and the wine hurt thou not.
    The pale horse is mass death that follows as Gregory has predicted will be coming and should fully manifest by 2019:
    Revelation 6:7-8 And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, Come. (8) And I saw, and behold, a pale horse: and he that sat upon him, his name was Death; and Hades followed with him. And there was given unto them authority over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
    But before any of these seals are opened there must be a covenant made between the “prince that shall come”, in verse 26 who is the “he” in verse 27, and the many that could very well manifest this year:
    Daniel 9:26-27 And after the threescore and two weeks shall the anointed one be cut off, and shall have nothing: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and even unto the end shall be war; desolations are determined. (27) And he shall make a firm covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one that maketh desolate; and even unto the full end, and that determined, shall wrath be poured out upon the desolate.
    This man of sin is revealed here:

    I didn’t know their was a golf course named Camp David? How did the MSM miss that?

    Seriously, I happy to see the president and cabinet at work discussing serious issues.

    I would hope the president would consider the military budget that doesn’t necessarily consider “new” weapons with outdated or two levels behind Russian technology.

    I know spare parts and maintenance won’t gain many converts from shipbuilders and aircraft manufacturers, but my sense is we couldn’t win a global conventional war with sub-standard technology when we can repair or maintain our equipment.

    In a nuclear world, do we really need a goal of about 350 ships and submarines?

    I’m trying to consider the cost savings of a mitigated global military footprint and substantial immigration reforms.

    How silly to think that $200 billion in federal spending cuts for perhaps five years would make a dent?

    Just waiting for hell to break loose.

    Hi Greg,
    What an excellent interview !!
    Just had a look at the chart of the valueless fiat so-called currency called the U S dollar.
    See here >>>> http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=%24USD
    Now if that isn’t a clear HEAD AND SHOULDERS pattern traced out between September and December then I don’t know. So anyone who hasn’t taken their affairs in hand and bought into the COMMODITY COMPLEX especially the GOLD & SILVER shares will die guessing about the monumental FINANCIAL CRISIS which was the brainchild of Sir Alan Greenspan .This diabolical situation WILL come crashing down in the near future.

    Hi Greg,
    Great interview as always. With regard to the question on President Trumps executive order on confiscation you posed to Gregory. It went right over his head. Gregory is without question a master of the markets. But not necessarily current events that is not monetary in nature. I believe you were trying to get his opinion on how the possibility of billions or trillions of dollars and or property seized from criminal prosecutions would benefit the U.S. economies day of reckoning. I believe it certainly couldn’t hurt. Bht with over $200 trillion in debt & unfunded liabilities it would probably be a blip on the screen.
    Sincerely,

    Greg,
    There is no doubt in my that the dollar is being systematically isolated.
    https://www.ft.com/content/84acd2b4-f1fd-11e7-ac08-07c3086a2625

    Lets recap what the Chinese have done during the past five years.
    – Created CIPS
    – Set up bank exchange platforms throughout the world.
    – Created AIIB bank
    – Created the Shanghai Gold Exchange
    – Received SDR drawing rights in the IMF basket
    – Last but not least prepare to launch a gold backed Yuan.
    You tell me what the Chinese are doing if they’re not creating an alternate exchange system to breakaway from the petrodollar? The bigger question is when? This petro Yuan launch is huge. If everything goes smoothly and according to plan, I can see a mass exodus away from the dollar, including Saudi Arabia reneging on their contracts.

    • Jerry

      Right on cue, the IMF has to stick their nose in this reset.

          If memory serves me right, a lot of these so called experts said that China would never receive SDR currency status either. How did that work out? Sometimes its hard to see the obvious when its staring you right in the face.
          https://oilprice.com/Geopolitics/International/Iran-Sanctions-Will-Help-Chinas-Petro-Yuan.html

          Americans as a whole have short memories because of our normalcy bias. It was not that long ago that “WE” borrowed close to 3 trillion dollars from the Chinese to avoid economic collapse, but yet we think we’re the ones in the economic drivers seat. Its not denial , Its TOTAL DELLSUION!

    • JMiller

      Jerry,

      There are currently no set plans to launch a gold backed yuan that I read any where. If you are referring to the planned launching of yuan denominated oil futures contracts (petro-yuan), which are wrongly being called gold-backed, then you are mistaken about a gold backed yuan. Also for anyone’s info, these yuan denominated oil futures contracts are not convertible to gold as some articles wrongly say. The U.S. dollar is convertible to physical gold as is other fiat currencies. But oil future contracts are not. You can take U.S. dollars and convert (exchange) them for physical gold with online dealers or your local coin store. You can’t do that with oil futures contracts. Oil futures contracts must be first converted to fiat currencies, or perhaps in the case of those yuan denominated oil futures contracts converted to a gold futures contract. Then you can convert those gold futures contracts to physical gold, that is if the exchanges would have enough gold which is questionable.

      • Jerry

        JMILLER
        Fundamentally you are correct. What I am referring to is a total economic paradigm shift based in “Gold” that the Chinese have been planning. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-03/chinas-plan-subvert-global-dollar-standard

        China knows that in order to break the fiat stranglehold that the west holds on the markets it must use gold backing for every purchase. That is the primary reason that the western central banks have subverted the gold prices for so long.

        • JMiller

          Thanks for the explanation Jerry. I appreciate your reply.

      • Occasnltrvlr

        Wow. Facts. Refreshing!

        Sometimes it is less than obvious that there is exactly one team who, in a slow and orderly way, is and has been changing the monetary system from a unipolar to a multipolar system. At the surface level, there is turmoil because political pressure is needed to change minds and to effect policy and legal changes. But below the surface, there is no competition, there are no “gotcha’s”, because there is far, far too much at stake.

        JMiller,
        Domestic yuan = DY
        Oil futures contracts in yuan= OY
        Gold futures contracts in yuan = GY
        Oversea dollar = OD
        Gold futures contracts in dollar = GD
        Domestic dollar = DD

        China buy oil from the world, O expansion means more yuan circulation which means less dollar usage.

        But the world oil producers don’t trust the yuan so they take the yuan from the oil exchange, walk across the street to the gold exchange, spend the yuan on gold or GY in Dubai or Hong Kong.
        Dubai or Hong Kong gold exchange takes the yuan and converts it to dollar (held oversea). They use the dollar (held oversea) to buy gold or GD from Comex in New York. The faster these oversea dollar are coming back in the U.S., the faster the yuan take over the dollar usage in the world.

        DY=OY=GY=OD=GD=DD

        Currently, the gold market is not big enough for the take over. However, when gold is at the right price, the drain of dollar oversea would accelerate.

        I concur it’s not gold backed yuan, it’s more like guarantee physical gold delivery (at market price) yuan – I can imagine oil producers running across the street from the oil exchange to the gold exchange in avoidance of extreme currency fluctuations.

    $233 Trillion in global debt. $16 trillion increase in past 9 months.

    Do the math on the interest cost of all of that debt. How could ANY currency be worth ANYthing more than ZERO, with that amount of debt ? Figure there is also AT LEAST 5 to 10 times that amount in derivatives.

    Unless that debt is literally destroyed, its senseless for ANY entity to issue any new currency, crypto or otherwise. It can have only have a negative value upon its issuance, and its a ticking time bomb for someone to grab that medium of exchange and turn around and try to use it quickly. This is the case with dollars, yuan, rubles, or any regular fiat.
    In fact, for the time being, because transactions are so utterly slow with crypto’s like Bitcoin, and there is a finite amount of them, their price is going up relative to fiat, because they can’t be spent that quickly. In a sense, it is a ‘relative’ store of ‘value’, primarily because it can’t be spent in many places, nor can it be spent quickly, and its also very costly to mine, and to even transact in. But that will be temporary, as hundreds and even thousands of cryptos will be issued, eliminating that time delay, and once more people actually accept them for transactional purposes, their prices will no longer skyrocket, but actually down, until they find some ‘stable price’ and some widespread usage.
    So in a way, Bitcoin or other crypto’s are responding to the latent ‘inflation’ in all fiat currencies. If you can tolerate a slower pace of increase, say 3 to 5 years, gold and silver would be the safer bet. Bitcoin might actually go to $100,000, but you just don’t know when it will suddenly collapse and lose 90% or 99% of its value. The trick is, you can’t hold it for long, and it really has to keep rising at a super stellar rate, or the money will all flood into the next crypto that is rising faster than Bitcoin. You could be left holding the bag.
    The taxes you will pay though, trying to sell it, and buy any other crypto, will be very problematic for you, and the IRS is going to be gunning for you. In fact, anyone transacting in crypto’s is likely to be an automatic ‘audit target’ which is easy to identify by the IRS using their screening algo’s, and simply using the data they get from your banks.
    Gold however, you can safely hold for a very long time, and wait for when it makes sense to unload it. You can even time it for tax advantaged purposes coincident with other financial activities in any particular year. With crypto’s being so volatile, you can’t do any timing and could be forced into selling at the worst time, or suffering a wipe out of 50 to 100% of your money in it.
    In fact, I’d go further to say, that gold and silver both, with the existence now of highly volatile crypto’s, will continue to produce smoother and less volatile gains for many years to come, with annual increases of anywhere from 10% to 30% on top of whatever the annual inflation rate is. Especially once stock markets start to implode, and bonds implode. You’ll have no other place to hide.

      “$233 Trillion in global debt”

      There is also an interesting “hidden” debt that is overlooked by virtually everyone. And that debt is all the fake paper gold that has been sold by the Western bullion banks. Some time back I did a derivation using the bond market as a reference point, to see how large the gold market is. Assuming that the gold market trades at about the same ratio of assets as does the bond market, then about 550,000 tonnes of gold would be needed to support the level of trade within the LBMA (as of a few years ago). Of course this is a huge problem as this amount of gold greatly exceeds everything that has ever been mined and only a fraction of what has been mined is available for investment purposes. This amount of gold, at $1320 per ounce, is another $23 trillion in liabilities for the western central banks. But what if gold rises to say $5,000 per ounce and all those owners of paper gold decide to get a hold of real gold? Then what? Then the liability grows to nearly $90 trillion. What if the central banks decide to pay everybody off? Then what? Try to imagine this amount of money hitting the system going after anything tangible out there. This of course is part of the unbelievable mess the Western central banks have made. Likely real gold will do very well in this scenario and cash will very quickly become worthless.

It truly is amazing to claim our President is mental when he wants the third world to get working on their own problems instead of using the United States as their baby sitter(s). Most of our large inner cities now are full of “no goes” area(s) who are loyal to their country of origin and only want to get the benefits of this one. I for one support the President in immigration control and to those, and you know who you are, who have taken advantage of America I say Start Packing!

    Inflation versus Bonds.

    US sovereign bonds (aka) Treasuries, trade based on inflation expectations.
    When inflation is higher, so are Treasury Bond yields.
    When bond yields rise, bond prices fall.
    Most all assets have bonds as their foundations.
    Another word for bond is debt.
    When bond prices fall, the bond bubble bursts.
    When the bond bubble goes poof.
    The “Everything Bubble” blows up.

    I’m not sure Greg Manarino quite understood Greg Hunter’s reason for bringing up the Executive Order. Manarino seemed to infer that the order might apply to every average guy in the street, whereas Greg Hunter’s thought was that it was going to be used to bring down the head honchos of the deep state and their friends. Other than that, Manarino is probably right about coming inflation. I’ll be paying special attention to the move away from the petrodollar on January 18th…as that is my birthday. So I’m not sure if this is a blessing or a curse of a birthday present.

    • Silence is Golden

      The EO…for the majoroity…will not be directly affected….but all and sundry will be INDIRECTLY affected by it. 100%.
      The EO is primarily a power grab. Its an attempt at consolidating power by eliminating all potential threats (if you have a functioning brain you can determine who this (EO) is directed at).
      If he is to be successful in making arrests and indicting the criminals and eliminating the “corruption”…then POTUS (or his successor)… will be free from competition and able to rule in the mandated fashion of his handlers…..(half of congress would disappear).
      Beware the wolf wearing sheeps clothing.

      • Arthur Barnes

        I see the Executive Order (EO) as leverage to get some bills past like the “wall”, Trump is not going to have anyone arrested in my mind if the elite tell their congressional puppets to pass some law; leverage is what I am talking about. Trump is one of the smartest
        Presidents to come along and he instinctively knows how to play the swamp. He knows the deep state wants to continue their immoral, illegal, and corrupt methods of wealth and privilege. He may well give them a pass and keep them above the law but they better get passing some law. Most of the time the swamp wouldn’t give any such threats any credence but with Trump being quite different than they are used to they may just have to capitulate.

        • Silence is Golden

          AB,
          Leverage might be part of it …but the overriding theme is to cull the criminals (AKA The Competition….or Threats to his Presidency…..or Roadblocks)…..whichever metaphor suits.
          Capitulate …YES……running for cover is a clear indicator……signals galore if one wishes to look …..to evidence the real concern that they have about being discovered and indicted…..and even worse …having their fortunes confiscated.
          I believe the recent crash in BITCOIN (which preceded the EO)…was insiders(the targetted criminals) taking agressive action to move away from the so called “corruption/threat to the financial system”….as defined under the all-encompassing Trump EO.
          Too much of a coincidence.

    Interesting as Martin Armstrong indicates the Dollar will bottom over the coming months, I tend to agree. China had a Dollar shortage again over the past two weeks.

    Currencies are a round robin game of devaluation that isn’t about to abate with the Dollar collapsing imho.

    Good luck to all and thanks Greg for doing what you do.

    Greg is spot on
    I would like to say the rest of the trading world no longer trusts America and no longer wants your dollars. As I have said only one follower is onto it on your comments blog.
    Jim Willie The Golden jackass has been preaching for 6 years of the petroyuan trade note backed by Gold, to be the way of the future. Once you follow all the BRICS nations work you begin to see that all their formulas and alining countries are lining up to dump US dollars. Trust is not what America holds close… the biggest call was when Germany told America to stop meddling in their energy usage and tried to block Russian gas to Europe. As Jim would say there will be 2 American dollars one for international trade and one domestic Schiste dollar.
    China and many others will not be unprepared for the next crash they will kick into their new system and continue to trade in a free fair market back by physical goods. It will be all the others that follow the US dollars slave note that will burn to the ground, alternative media is thriving so will alternative trade thrive, Gold Trade Note is coming that is a certainty….Reset is coming and your Trump will get the best deal he is given, The deal is longer determined by America it is the real world setting the rules, play fair or you don’t play at all, that should of happened in 2008.
    Greg I know you do not want to have Jim on as a guest speaker, as he speaks his mind but boy o boy has he and his crew been spot on so far, he is by far the most accurate commentator of all, on alternative news.

    If anyone wants to see how profoundly genius Trump truly is, and his co-hort Steve Bannon, you really need to watch this video by Scott Adams. Scott himself, probably has an IQ in excess of 180, when you dig down and notice his insights about people and society over the past number of decades, and how successfully he has captured most of life and how things really are, in his comic series called Dilbert.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNNa0diiEFs

    But this level of awesomeness occurring is HIGHLY unusual to come to light in such a public venue. The book out now by Wolff, is actually planned (believe it or not) by Trump and Bannon, as a total psy-ops job to get all the never Trumpers who have been wrong so many times, and on so many levels, and have been so utterly stupid to believe crap like the Russian collusion story, and all the other bull the media feeds us all daily, that they are going to see themselves in the mirror by reading this book of totally insane hysteria. And they will be seeing how ugly, and how totally hysterically wrong they have been about Trump since going back to at least 2015, that the book will mark a MAJOR shift in their attitudes, and probably a major turning point to where now they will QUESTION everything that the media says bad about Trump from here on out.

    Scott doesn’t say this, but I believe this book will cause EVERYONE to completely TURN on Mainstream Media, coincident by the way with all the sexual harassment cases and executives, to where there will be wholesale collapse of the executive structures within those organizations, and advertisers will force every single network to completely CLEAN HOUSE. Yep. thats not all. Not too long from now, and definitely before Trump’s re-election in 2020 (if he decides to run again), the media will become almost reverential toward the Presidency, and realize how wrong they were about worshipping Obama. Conservatism will come back then in a BIG BIG BIG way in all of media. Once the 1000’s of indictments come forth from Trump, and big CEOs and execs like Google’s Schmidt end up at Guantanamo Bay prison camp, then Clintons will be prosecuted successfully, and many more names you will never imagine. Trump is geniously using Bannon to help him build/shift the necessary public mentality to be open to believing these crimes the Clintons have committed, and Obama, and so many other congress people who will be also going to prison, aren’t just some sort of Hitler like martial law.
    Trump knows he can’t just indict and imprison these people right away. He has to re-build a public belief system that has been so mis-led for so many years, and make sure they believe that these crimes are so very real, and so very deep, that there is beyond a reasonable doubt he can proceed without himself being impeached.
    That is why we have seen no end to the inside traitorous actions by the ‘deep state’ to unseat Trump.
    Put the pieces together people. This is historic. We are finally going to learn the truth about how criminal our government has been, going back to the Bushes, and Clintons, and even Obama, and we are going to be led out of this giant hell hole of deep corruption, and recognize that $21 trillion missing is just the tip of the iceberg. Trump is going to expose it all. But he needs to have the help of those like Bannon, and use media techniques and psy-ops long before hand on us the entire US citizenry, before he can successfully root out and actually imprison these politicians and CEO’s at the highest of levels.

    The book about Trump is in essence, one big giant trap for all of the never-Trumpers, the liberals, and the dems. They are ALL going to take the bait, hook, line and sinker. They are all going to mistakenly say and think, that this book is out there to sink Trump, and claim his days are over. Of course nothing could be further from the truth.

      I could not agree more and hope that Greg will change his mind about having him as a guest. I also would love to see Michael Hudson, arguably the best economist in the World, as a guest.

    Everytime metals get knocked down, you gotta wonder about soaring stocks and crypto prices. Greatest con ever? We’ll see.

    I’ve been watching Greg Hunter for 5plus years now. I think it would be great to see new faces of the opposite politic spectrum on the watchdog where Greg can take the opportunity to swing tough questions that otherwise aren’t asked to these guys on msm. Try and round something up Greg.

  39. Paul Clinton

    I have to give credit where credit is due. I have learned some of the most important financial truths on this website, thanks to Mr. Hunter and his excellent guests. This particular interview has made me ponder something… my gut tells me that all of the previous “knowns” are being rewritten as I type this. There are big moves going on right now that are going to be epic… We see the hints all around and know this. So much money, currency, labor, energy, manufacturing, political inertia and more are being redirected. Everyone has to re-position their board pieces since this last election. I do vehemently agree with Mr. Mannarino that we need to take action right now for ourselves! However, the President and his loyal staff are working very hard for the us average folks…

    I am so thankful to my Heavenly Father to be alive and witness this epic time! May all of us help like minded souls, and to plant the seeds of truth, to find the escape route out of the physical mess as well as to inherit unimaginable joy and true prosperity!

    Don’t worry about the stock market getting too high. In 2020 when Oprah is elected president it will correct in a hurry.

    Good news for retail: China is now, as of Jan. 1, refusing to accept these containers full of our recycling junk. The pollution from it, including dirty diapers, LED broken bulbs, nd other garbage, has caused serious health issues.
    Almost all packaging material from online shopping is made from our garbage by Chinese, who sort out the mess and make packaging for our online stores. NO MORE Packaging will have to come from the US or another country and soar in price.
    We can’t bear the sight of a tired girl, usually black, heaving our dog food from Chewy on Fed Ex…..so we’re already going back to making trips to get it. Some of the abuse of workers here is really ugly.
    I hope our retail stores can hang on a while….

    • Jodyp

      How is taking a physical job with a delivery company abusive?

  42. Gina M Mancarella

    Inflation may be the theme according to Mannarino, but the universe is being conquered by a new brand of leadership. With reliance on radical feminism at our core, woman power is now poised to ascend to the throne of power. The era of the creepy white middle aged male is now over. Confirmation last night demonstrates that we will annoint a new spearhead for our cause. Imagine a few years from now … President Oprah Winfrey …. Attourney General Kamala Harris and Seretary if State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Why dont you ask Cliff High about his Predictive Linguistics now ? Our time will come. True Freedom will ring. People can be who they are and be what they want to be. Marijuana will be legal and our international influence, power and military might will be the envy of the world once more.

    • FC

      It will take a population high on dope to vote in Oprah , Harris, and Clinton………..hence the legalization of marijuana………………people, please resist the reefer.

    • Russ

      Where to start…
      Annoint?? Oprah loves to give stuff away and that was fine and entertaining as long as she used her own money, or her company’s money. What would happen if she were Prez and she started giving away free stuff but she used “our” money. We’d be right back on the same path that Obama planned for us – free stuff isn’t really free. President Oprah scares the s**t out of me…

      Kamala Harris is very ambitious and has never met a shoulder she wouldn’t stand on or a back she wouldn’t stab. Be very careful when she says something about having your back. It’s all about her…

      Hillary? You think Hillary would be SecState under Oprah? LOL Look at Libya and then tell me about how great she was as SecState. Look at what’s left of the country itself and why so many Libyans are doing anything they can to reach Europe — that’s all Hillary. I won’t even bring up Benghazi — oops… Hillary is a Neo-Con.
      Besides, Hillary is more likely to find herself in an orange jumpsuit upstate than a blue pantsuit at Foggy Bottom. Her private server is back in the news and she no longer has her people at the FBI & DOJ to cover up her crimes by editing out the “gross negligence” verbiage to give her a free pass.

    • Justn Observer

      Gina – Truly your glass runneth over with too much kool -aid ! You remind me of Golde Hawn…’where is my condo’ ! You not only underestimate the POWER of the Matrix…I believe you have no clue of it…the range and depth of it… I pity you , If you think voting for Oprah is going to tip over how many centuries of Roman-Vatican – Imperial world control…clearly you have no understanding of how or why Presidents and Kings and Religious leaders are removed or by who. At best – we’ll see the ‘appearance’ of a swamp draining…and maybe a bit of a change of what is ‘acceptable’ behavior by them… But that the world will be voided OF THEM…NOT LIKELY…

    • Chip2

      That’s pretty unhinged. I don’t think YOU even believe a word of it. And where’d Hillary go, anyway?

      Get ye back to the kitchen thou vile shameless shrew. Just dreadful….
      Men around the world who have mistakenly taken a quiet step back out of consideration need to put an end to this ugly and stupid bitchcraft now before it gets out of hand. These are poisonous and abusive individuals, destroyers of families, healthy societies and whole countries if they get into some position of influence. They have little between their ears but nonsense and the pathological desire of revenge. Contrary to their demands and wishes for domination they have gone further than can be tolerated even making allowance for eccentricity and perversity. Death to radical feminism and the NWO!!

      Greg, this girl knows what she is talking about.

      You go girl. None of us were prepared for the nightmare known as Donald Trump or how our lives would be so adversely affected. But women all over are waking up and standing up for what is right. We are standing up against bigotry, racism, sexism and all the other abuses against humanity. On 2020, the male gender will truly come to understand the word power. Hand in hand we will march and defeat the powers of male ego and male privilege. Vagina power will be heard and understood as the supreme authority throughout the land. Rasmussen reports that when Oprah runs against Trump, she will win by a huge margin. She gets the black vote. She gets the women vote. And she also gets the votes of all the sensitive, respectful repentant males out there. All you brutish abusive men can vote for Trump all you want, but YOU LOSE !

        You are prejudiced , close minded and unjust.
        Above all ……you are a hypocrite.

      • Gina M Mancarella

        Thank You for your kind words my sister. I love for the day when equality can be seen across the spectrum. I live for the day when personal freedom will be reality for all our brothers and sisters. Oprah brings women and men together in a positive way. We look forward to a time when Jim Crow is nothing but a memory. We need black people to have a seat at the table of America. We need respect for the rights of Women and the prerogative of women to say, “hands off of my vagina !!!” 2020 is the year when we take over. Bill Kristol endorses Oprah ! Just so you know !

      • Neil

        I notice that whatever the physical age of these women they never progress beyond ‘girl’ in their own estimation/insistence – presumably they all experience arrested development at the time of being a stroppy teenager… Maybe they should have had stronger fathers and they would have transitioned that phase properly to adulthood?
        One thing I do agree with is they should all GO somewhere, ideally where they cant be heard making fools of themselves or practicing their veracious incantations. ->’Vagina power will be heard and understood as the supreme authority throughout the land.’ – Dear God, give me a break….

      • Keith wilson

        Vagina power will be heard and understood throughout the land ? What the hell are you talking about Gwendolyn. Is there any reason to use such words on a christian family site like usawatchdog.com. What the hell does Oprah know about what goes on in the real world. She lives in LA LA LA land on TV. Vote for Oprah in 2020 . Is this the best America can offer as a future president of the free world. Truman, Reagan,Roosevelt must be turning in there graves .

    • Jennifer Crowther

      Very well stated Gina. Only thing I would add regards revising male expectations of us. To the guys out there, you need to be courteous of a girls feelings and desires. When we say no, we mean no to your sexual advances. And even if you marry us, it doesn’t mean that we are your equipment subject to your spur of the moment desires. We are people who now have a voice. We shouldn’t have to put up with your abuse and sick personal assaults. Now we don’t have to. We are asserting our rights and calling you on the carpet for the pigs that you are.

    Why do I have the feeling a year from now, we’ll all be here bemoaning the fake-money system and expecting its demise ANYTIME NOW? Face it: it’s rigged; “they” own us. They have owned us for 50 years and will continue doing so in the future. Most of us here will die under this system, if not literally, then figuratively. Best always. PM

      There is no will to fight. I can speak for thee PNW Redoubt, home of the so-called Liberty Movement. Some plan for survival, most talk, but there is no will to fight.

      Back in 2010 I thought succession might take hold. I was naïve to think patriots would fight. They just have too much to lose. Now the best case model for hope would be Estonia. It is a far cry from being a Soviet state. Imagine if that country were God-fearing and large enough to defend itself.

    Great interview Greg. Have you ever thought of contacting and having on James Corbett? Please consider that. I’m sure it would be a viral interview.

  47. Canuck

    Presidents, Prime Ministers, Religious leaders, …… it doesn’t matter. It’s the same crap over and over. There is a much larger power that these puppets answer to. If you think elections are a democratic process you must be out of your mind. The candidates are selected. People, you must learn about the Khazarian Mafia. They are prepping for a BIG reset and when they corral us into a digital only currency we are as good as livestock. Sadly

    GREG:
    What a great time to be alive. I watch as our government is being purged of lying, stealing, and deception. I see our financial system going through big changes. I hear people saying they are once again proud to be an American. All this comes to us through a mentally unbalanced President.
    If our President is mentally unbalanced, God please give us Congressmen who are mentally unbalanced also

    Greg Mannerino knows that the Stock Market is a game and he tells us that he plays it for profit because he understands how it operates. He is a card counter in the Casino that the DOW has become. Not only a Casino, but one in which wealthy Uncle Sam who lives in the basement operates a printing press and sends boatloads of freshly minted USD to the vaults to assure that the House will never go bust. Dial up a number 30K, 100K, heck why not 1M it does not matter the DOW number is only there because a majority are programmed to look at the number to know if the game is over yet. If these poor fools had half a brain the only number that they would pay attention to would be the total amount of debt that they have screwed themselves into.

    https://nypost.com/2016/02/27/credit-debt-at-its-highest-since-the-2009-recession/

    Here are the numbers that really matter and as both of you Gregs always say, “Become your own Central Bank, lose all of your debt and be free”. It is the wisest financial advice out there and many of us heeded it over a decade ago now. Debt is slavery, break the chains, be free. God did not create money nor did He create debt. He is far above such tripe and so too should we be. Good luck, God Bless.

    I think Mr. Trump should be able to circumvent this-legally. Wouldn’t one call this an executive order? Perhaps, not unlike Obama’s original executive order to unilaterally set immigration policy?
    It had to be a California judge.

  54. Nonnie Minga

    Greg with the closing of many retail businesses and the buying on line I wonder how much thought has been given to the following possible problem. How will the states and localities make up the shortfall in sales tax and property taxes? If the online sales is say 10% that could mean a 10% drop in sales tax revenue. The closing of retail sends the value of those properties down. So who will pay and how will they pay? Raise Real Estate or raise property values, Raise taxes on motel hotel rooms, raise prepared food taxes? But raise taxes they will.
    Thank you for all you do.

    Greg,
    Do we need validation of what is coming ? How about this.”The mother of all Pump Fakes”. http://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireStory/china-report-buying-us-debt-stop-fake-news-52276074

    The markets almost blew a gasket yesterday over a “supposed rumor” that China will stop buying U.S. debt. So what did we learn?
    1. That China is clearly in the global economic drivers seat. Not us.
    2. That the MSM will believe anything.
    3. China is clearly testing the economic waters in preparation for something.

    Nothing smacks of desperation more than the thought of “panic setting in” that someone should have the nerve to cut our economic credit card. Let this be a warning.

  57. Justn Observer

    Canuck…. Good luck with that ! Been sounding that for a few years as others …but then…that that takes someone to ‘believe’ in conspiracy theories! lol And considerable reading or at least ‘studying’ some of the links others provide… Sorry we live in the land of tweets now… very few want to bother going over history, records, lineage, and reality.
    Better we have a circular firing squad between who things stocks vs. PM stackers vs. those dreadful and hopeful bit-coin-block chain decentralize banking guys – lol.
    But hopefully Canuck…these links might lead a few down your suggested path…though I doubt few will bother to make an effort flow the white rabbit !

    Cash repatriating to the U.S. That’s exactly what Dr. Ron Paul said would happen years ago. He said the money would come back because the world is dumping dollars. We are finally hitting that point. He said when the dollars come back, we would eventually experience hyperinflation. Austrian economist, John Williams of shadowstats website also said that! I hope you can get John Williams back on about this.
