Imperative Reading: Trump’s Immigration Paper (Or Is It Jeff Sessions’?)

Imperative Reading: Trump’s Immigration Paper (Or Is It Jeff Sessions’?)
Patrick Cleburne
August 16, 2015, 2:41 pm
Donald Trump’s campaign has posted on its website Immigration Reform That Will Make America Great Again (PDF version here). James Fulford has documented the resulting neocon shock/ horror. My own first impression is that some extremely knowledgeable Patriots very strongly influenced the document: Jeff Sessions’ staff being the likely group.

Following the general statement

Here are the three core principles of real immigration reform:

A nation without borders is not a nation. There must be a wall across the southern border.
A nation without laws is not a nation. Laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional system of government must be enforced.
A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation. Any immigration plan must improve jobs, wages and security for all Americans…

the paper takes a very adversarial stance towards Mexico.

For many years, Mexico’s leaders have been taking advantage of the United States by using illegal immigration to export the crime and poverty in their own country… the Mexican government has taken the United States to the cleaners. They are responsible for this problem, and they must help pay to clean it up.

and targets the jugular

Mexico must pay for the wall and, until they do, the United States will, among other things: impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages…

The Israelis long since realized this is a decisive measure: in 2012 I asked Israel To Block Illegal Immigrant Remittances: Why Doesn`t America?

The paper goes on to propose tripling the Enforcement and Removal Operation of ICE, making the enterprising proposal

This will be funded by accepting the recommendation of the Inspector General for Tax Administration and eliminating tax credit payments to illegal immigrants.

Implementing E-verify, Mandatory return of Criminal Aliens, end of catch-and-release, and defunding sanctuary cities—this is a Patriot’s Christmas tree! Particularly warming to us at VDARE.com is

End birthright citizenship. This remains the biggest magnet for illegal immigration. By a 2:1 margin, voters say it’s the wrong policy, including Harry Reid who said “no sane country” would give automatic citizenship to the children of illegal immigrants.

We published Weigh Anchor! Enforce the Citizenship Clause, our definitive explication of the issue in 2001. “Birthright Citizenship” is the engine for the political, as distinct from the demographic, transformation of America and the hysterical fury with which the Treason Lobby greeted the revival of the issue in 2010 shows that they are perfectly aware of this.

The only disappointment I find in this plan in that it only proposes to

Increase standards for the admission of refugees and asylum-seekers to crack down on abuses.

The refugee/asylee program is fatally flawed and should be abolished.

On the other hand, the Trump paper proposes to abolish the j-1 visa which has wrecked summer employment prospects for American youth. And in

Immigration moderation. Before any new green cards are issued to foreign workers abroad, there will be a pause where employers will have to hire from the domestic pool of unemployed immigrant and native workers.

do I hear a hint of…MORATORIUM!!!

Trump’s plan is imperative reading for all Patriots.


Sounds encouraging, but the feeeeeeeelth won’t care until……

In lieu of Metals & Markets this week, we bring readers CONFIRMATION that a WHOLESALE SILVER SHORTAGE is in fact developing

With SDBullion’s contacts with the nation’s leading precious metals mints, wholesalers, authorized purchasers, and distributors, the latest evidence indicates that the wholesale silver shortage is WORSENING:

  • US Mint Authorized Purchasers advised SDBullion Thursday that Silver Eagle allocations have been substantially declining every week since sales resumed.
    2 weeks ago the US Mint made 1.4 million Silver Eagle coins available to Authorized Purchasers, last week only 1 million were made available, and SDBullion was advised that this week the number declined an additional 20%.
    Further, US Mint officials reportedly are advising Authorized Purchasers that they will begin making the switch to 2016 Silver Eagle production in September, drastically reducing output of 2015 coins.
    As it takes less than a day to change out dyes (in addition to the fact that in previous years the US Mint has halted sales in the November/December time-frame for the annual “switchover”) the evidence in our opinion points to the US Mint having extreme difficulties in sourcing raw material for Silver Eagle coins.•The Exclusive Distributor for the leading private mint 100 oz Silver bars in the US advised SDBullion on Thursday that the mint had been scheduled (and promised) to deliver 10,000 100 oz Silver Bars on Wednesday (1 million oz of a single private mint product), but was only able to deliver a little over 3,000 bars.

    •The Royal Canadian Mint reportedly did not release a single 1 oz Silver Maple to any of the Authorized Purchasers SDBullion spoke to this week.
    This comes on the heels of a severe issue with the Royal Canadian Mint’s production of 10 oz Silver bars.

    New orders for Sunshine Mint 1 oz Rounds are shipping to dealers/distributors on a 9 WEEK DELAY! Nearly the end of October!!!

    •The 3rd largest US wholesaler/distributor of precious metals with 21 warehouses usually stocked to the rafters with bullion advised SDBullion they have been CLEANED OUT.

    •Over the past 48 hours nearly all of the last remaining Live products at US Wholesalers (higher premium retail products from world mints such as the Perth Mint, New Zealand Mint, Banco De Mexico, Royal Mint, Austrian Mint, Armenian Mint, and the Chinese Mint) have virtually all been SOLD OUT at the wholesale level.

    •Bullion mainstays such as Johnson Matthey and RCM 100 oz bars have gone NO OFFER at several of the largest US wholesaler/ distributors.

Several weeks ago The Doc warned that we were looking at the potential for 2008 style premiums across the precious metals markets.

If we have ANY further material weakness in the paper markets OR if the US Mint follows through on halting sales yet again in September for a “2016 switchover” that prediction is likely to become a reality.

This article was from SilverDoctors.com.  To read more about the ongoing silver shortage, please check out the SilverDoctors.com website.

If you haven’t checked out THE SILVER CHART REPORT, there’s a great deal of information on the Silver Industry & Market not found in any single publication on the internet.  There is one chart in this report (Chart #19) that I can guarantee that 99.9% of precious metal investors haven’t seen before.

Game Change: Trump Consults with Sen Jeff Sessions on Immigration Strategy

Posted by goldcountry @ 17:47 on August 16, 2015  

In what may be the most important development in the 2016 Presidential race to date, Donald Trump has announced, and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
’ office has confirmed, that the GOP front-runner is consulting with the Alabama Senator in crafting his immigration plan for the future of America.

The real estate mogul’s announcement will send shock waves through Washington D.C. and all across primary states.

Trump, whose campaign has focused primarily on issues of immigration and trade, has seen a meteoric rise since entering the race, with throngs of supporters across the country rocketing him to the top of every single poll, despite an extraordinary effort of establishment Republicans to take him down. Republican pundits have lobbed every imaginable accusation at Trump. Yet these same pundits, while seemingly furious at the man, have demonstrated no similar concern, angst, or passion about the dissolution of our southern border, the rampant exploitation of guest-worker programs, the collapse of middle class wages, and the growing illegal immigrant crime wave.

Sen. Sessions, Chairman of the Senate’s Immigration Subcommittee, is widely regarded as the gold standard on immigration. Sessions has also become the intellectual thought leader in the Republican Party on appealing to the blue collar voters who have been abandoned by their political leaders.

For instance, Sen. Sessions recently led the fight against Obamatrade, issuing one in-depth report after another about its effects on working families.

The Washington Post reports:

Donald Trump will unveil a series of position papers in early September, he said in an interview Friday, beginning with a plan to address immigration policy that was crafted with the counsel of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), a favorite of conservative activists and an outspoken border hawk…

Sen. Sessions’ spokesman Stephen Miller told The Post:

Senator Sessions enjoyed the opportunity to speak with Mr. Trump. The senator believes the defining issues in 2016 will be how to earn the trust of struggling workers, and how to develop trade and immigration policies that serve their interests.

Trump told The Post that he holds the Alabama Senator in extremely high regard: “I like him… Tough guy. I like that. We have a similar thought process.”

Indeed, Sessions is well-known for his no-nonsense cross examinations, including his subtle yet devastating unraveling of Lorreta Lynch and his hard-hitting exchanges in the Budget Committee before Republicans gave the gavel to leadership-ally Sen. Mike Enzi.

Sessions’ esteemed reputation on immigration is indeed well-earned. Sessions led the fight to stop the immigration expansion effort of 2006 and 2007, before leading the charge to derail the 2013 Gang of Eight bill. Following the 2007 implosion of McCain-Kennedy, the donor class has spent unprecedented sums of money and organizational resources to try to pass legislation that would combine amnesty with a massive increase to record yearly immigration levels.

Druck and GLD

Posted by Portugeezer @ 16:49 on August 16, 2015  

Owning GLD is probably like owning the US$ at the moment – a game of chicken.

I’m sure he knows of the pitfalls and the huge fractional basis of the actual physical against the nominal share count.

Suppose he was smart and very, very brave.  He could outmanouver citi and JPM by taking out the physical before they do.

GLD holders cash cash out for dollars, or if you have enough shares, you can withdraw the physical.

Go for it Druck – or get left holding the naked shares that will be redeemed in cash when the physical has gone.  Still 100:1 is it?

I wonder just how much, if any, effect buying GLD will have on the PoG.  If he bought physical or even crimex paper and insisted on delivery, THAT would be an influence on the PoG.


To me, the banksters can short every share of GLD that anyone or any institution wants to buy.   GLD; the lazy man’s way to ALMOST buy gold.  At best it follows the crimex/feeeeeeeeeelth managed PoG. At worst, it is a tool used by the banksters or else it would have never been allowed to exist.

The drunkster’s act may, may, may  start people thinking about gold.


old-timer @ 15:36 silverngold’s 10:51 was from Jim Stone, here is his latest take

Posted by goldcountry @ 10:37 on August 16, 2015  

Official story a proven (call it “error” for now).
After carefully poring over the images, it is now obvious that the actual epicenter of the explosion was nowhere near ANY WAREHOUSE AT ALL, and in fact happened across property owned by more than one shipping company. Ruihai was supposed to be blamed for this, but it is obvious at this point that they were not responsible for the blast. Now I really think it was a kinetic weapon that did this, because the big crater happened in the middle of nowhere at all, and targeting is probably very difficult to get perfect with that type of weapon. One thing is certain, this surely was NOT a warehouse blast, the closest warehouse was approximately 100 yards away.

The explosion was actually closest to their security gate and whatever other shipping companies surrounded Ruihai. The explosion was so massive that many many buildings have completely vanished, including all warehouses and storage areas owned by Ruihai and surrounding shipping companies, with only a concrete office building remaining (1 of 2). All others are completely gone without a trace. Selective deletion of buildings (based on what they are made of) is a hallmark indicator of a nuclear weapons type blast, and if this was a kinetic weapon, results are similar.

One thing is made obvious by the very up to date “before” image: there was nothing at the epicenter that could have exploded, something other than chemicals did this. And the scale of the blast proves it was definitely a multiple kiloton range blast, achievable ONLY BY A SUPER POWER NATION.
Now the only thing up to speculation is exactly why a superpower attacked China. Was it the currency devaluation? Hillary’s espionage story in need of burial? You guess, at this point it is irrelevant, an attack is proven.

The Druck

Posted by Buygold @ 10:19 on August 16, 2015  

Having Druckenmiller join the dark side and get himself some paper gold is actually some of the better news we’ve had in quite awhile. Hopefully some of the lemming hedge fund managers will jump on board with him.

I am a little concerned though that he hasn’t actually watched the paper killers on Comex long enough and might not realize just how tough an uphill battle he’s in for. Fundamentals don’t really matter in the gold market Druck, just sayin’.

Grandmas in there being me, ahh were getting old. He had a original name for the sardines swimming in circles, called it a fish tornado. Couldn’t get him to go Kayaking to get out there with the sea life. He was cool with that. Guess he saw a great white sneak up on a surfer who escaped but was enough to keep him from kayaking, seems to love the ocean anyways.
