How Much Higher Can The U.S. Dollar Go?

Let’s start our examination of the U.S. dollar (USD) by recalling the chart from my August 2014 essay, Why the Dollar Could Strengthen—A Lot.  At that point, the USD had moved modestly off its lows, and had yet to challenge long-term resistance around 80.

Here’s the same chart of the Real Trade-Weighted U.S. Dollar Index now:

The USD broke out of its multi-year downtrend and soared above 100. Needless to say, the USD did in fact strengthen a lot.  After that initial leg up, the dollar has remained in a consolidation range for much of 2015. Though it recently broke out of a wedge/triangle formation to the upside, it’s not yet clear if this is a definitive move higher or more consolidation.

Is the Dollar Rally Done?

So is the dollar rally done, or could it move higher?

The long-term chart above (Real Trade-Weighted U.S. Dollar Index) offers some clues.

Our first observation is that trends in the USD tend to last for some time, so if this rally follows the pattern of previous rallies, it’s unlikely to have run its course in one year.

Secondly, previous rallies paused for a multi-month consolidation period before launching upward for the second leg of the long-term rally.

Thirdly, the USD rose sharply to previous peaks and then round-tripped back to the 80 level.

Exposing the Greatest Conspiracy of Modern Times

Guest author Kenneth Anton: author of Popsicle Man and Cancer Vortex (Carl Herman note: I’ve provided links in the following article to substantiate factual claims)

There is a growing disconnect between the American people and government whose lying statistics proclaim a recovery while 92 million remain out of work; the Middle Class is disappearing; students are overburdened with debt and the top 0.1% control 90% of the wealth. As times get harder, and they will, Americans are demanding the truth. Why waste trillions bombing other countries where the enemy (Al Qaeda and Islamic State) are known CIA creations?

Stop this deceptive abomination – we need the money back home!

End the FED and the Corrupt Fiat Money System

Popsicle Man by Kenneth Anton traces the history of UK and US Central Bankers, revealing how they gained their wealth and power over the last two centuries.

Do Americans really need a private Central Bank to issue our debt-based currency and charge us interest for the privilege?

What right do the TooBigToFail banks have to exploit the system, steal trillions, and get away without prosecution? Why are the TBTF banks allowed to trade derivatives, risking trillions in losses? And why are bank depositors liable for these losses via Bail-ins when the gambling bets turn sour?

5-minute video: 2 US State Dept officials squirm, lie, REFUSE to provide evidence that ‘Russia bombs hospitals’

hat tip: Russia Insider, What Really Happened

Russia Today’s Gayane Chichakyan questions spokesperson for the United States Department of State Admiral John Kirby, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense:

“Do you have any evidence that Russia bombed hospitals in Syria?”

The admiral’s answer, amid “ummm, and ahhh,” claims to have seen “press reporting,” testimony of un-named sources, and other unspecified reporting.

When asked for specific evidence, the admiral refused further detail and claimed to have answered the question.

The second clip in the video is US Department of State Director of the Press Office Elizabeth Trudeau pressed with the question of what exact hospital was hit by Russia and where. She states that she stands with Mr. Kirby, refuses to answer what hospital was hit, then accuses Russia of “targeting civilian infrastructure.”

Ms. Trudeau claims she can’t discuss the location of the hospital hit by Russian bombing because it is a “detail of operational assessment.”

AP reporter Matthew Lee asks how a location of a hospital harms intelligence sources or methods; Ms. Trudeau fails to provide a location or name of the hospital.

Ms. Chichakyan provides photographic evidence of a hospital in the area that shows no evidence of harm. Ms. Trudeau fails to answer if that is or is not the hospital the US accuses Russia of bombing.

4-minute video: Real global terrorism HAS ALWAYS BEEN empire/colonialism, always with criminal rhetoric for ‘freedom,’ ‘civilization,’ ‘love of Jesus’ as millions killed, trillions looted

res ipsa loquitur: facts speak for themselves

4-minute reminder of colonial history from Films for Action:

The Roman Empire fell in tragic-comedy; gluttonous plutocrats demanding literal worship as “divine” until critical mass among the people rejected such ridiculous subversion of former Roman virtue. The most prolific Roman historian, Livy, witnessed Rome’s transition into dictatorial empire with Augustus Caesar as first emperor. In his preface to address 700 years of Roman history:

“I have no doubt that the earliest origins and the immediately succeeding period will give less delight to the majority of readers who are hurrying to these recent times in which the might of a most powerful people has long been destroying itself.

… I shall seek this additional reward for my labor (recounting all Rome’s history) so that I may turn away from the contemplation of the evils that our age has seen for so many years.” – The History of Rome, Preface

As in Rome’s fall, the United States is a tragic-comedy of its founding ideals of limited government under our Constitution, and Enlightenment ideals of freedom for all in a meritocratic society. The United States today is the leading global criminal empire among the so-called “former” colonial powers; ridiculous in Emperor’s New Clothes obvious crimes for anyone caring to look at the facts:

I wrote the first three parts of this article back in September and planned to finish it in early October, but life intervened and truthfully I don’t think I was ready to confront how bad things will likely get as this Fourth Turning moves into the violent, chaotic war stage just over the horizon. The developments in the Middle East, Europe, U.S., China and across the globe in the last months have confirmed my belief war drums are beating louder, global war beckons, and much bloodshed will be the result. Fourth Turnings proceed at their own pace within the 20 to 25 year crisis framework, but there is one guarantee – they never de-intensify as they progress. Just as Winter gets colder, stormier and more bitter as you proceed from December through February, Fourth Turnings get nastier, grimmer, more perilous, with our way of life hanging in the balance.

In Part 1 of this article I discussed the catalyst spark which ignited this Fourth Turning and the seemingly delayed regeneracy. In Part 2 I pondered possible Grey Champion prophet generation leaders who could arise during the regeneracy. In Part 3 I focused on the economic channel of distress which is likely to be the primary driving force in the next phase of this Crisis. In Part 4 I will assess the social and cultural channels of distress dividing the nation, Part 5 the technological, ecological, political, military channels of distress likely to burst forth with the molten ingredients of this Fourth Turning, and finally in Part 6 our rendezvous with destiny, with potential climaxes to this Winter of our discontent.

Impacts of Turkey’s Aggression against Russia. The “Turkish Stream” is Dead. Disruption of Gas Pipeline Routes to the EU. Russia’s Economy in Crisis?

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky, who publishes Global Research.

“Regime change” in Ukraine engineered by the US State Department was largely responsible for the collapse of the “South Stream” gas pipeline project. Washington’s intent was to establish a de facto blockade which would prevent the flow of Russian gas to the European Union. 

“The South Stream gas pipeline worth €15.5 billion was intended to pump 67 billion cubic meters of Russian natural gas to Europe annually.

The pipeline’s underwater section 900 km (559 miles) long was intended to run along the bed of the Black Sea from the Russkaya compressor station on the Russian shore to the Bulgarian coast.” (TASS, January 14, 2015)

On December 1, 2014, President Vladimir Putin announced that the project to build the South Stream gas pipeline “was closed due to the European Union’s unconstructive approach to cooperation, including Bulgaria’s decision [pressured by the US] to stop the construction of the pipeline’s stretch on its territory.”

South Stream Pipeline Route Options, source TASS

The South Stream was replaced by the “Turkish Stream”. The scrapping of the South Stream was coupled with the signing in Ankara of a historic December 2014 deal between presidents Vladimir Putin and Recyyp Erdogan.

Under the Russian-Turkish agreement pertaining to gas pipeline routes, Turkey was slated to become a major hub and transit route for the export of Russian natural gas to both Southern and Western Europe.

A Waroholic Wishes You Peace on Earth

Imagine an alcoholic who managed every night to get ahold of and consume huge quantities of whiskey and who every morning swore that drinking whiskey had been his very last resort, he’d had no choice at all.

Easy to imagine, no doubt. An addict will always justify himself, how ever nonsensically it has to be done.

But imagine a world in which everyone believed him and solemnly said to each other “He really had no other choice. He truly had tried everything else.”

Not so plausible, is it? Almost unimaginable, in fact. And yet:

Everyone says the United States is at war in Syria as a last resort, even though:

  • The United States spent years sabotaging UN attempts at peace in Syria.
  • The United States dismissed out of hand a Russian peace proposal for Syria in 2012.
  • And when the United States claimed a bombing campaign was needed immediately as a “last resort” in 2013 but the U.S. public was wildly opposed, other options were pursued.

Numerous U.S. Congress Members said this year that the nuclear deal with Iran needed to be rejected and Iran attacked as a last resort, until the deal wasn’t rejected. No mention was made in 2015 of Iran’s 2003 offer to negotiate away its nuclear program, an offer that had been quickly scorned by the United States.

Saudi Arabia Goes Scientology

Scientology is famous for suing everyone who criticizes it or its leaders.

For example, Business Insider noted in 2012:

The church has also launched  intellectual property suits to keep its re-ligious documents a secret, and it has waged legal battles throughout the world in the name of religious freedom.

The Church fought an epic battle with the IRS in an effort to secure tax-exempt status.

That finally resulted in a secret 1993 deal with the federal government, the Wall Street Journal reported in 1997, after obtaining a copy of the agreement.

Under the deal, the church won tax exempt status in exchange for paying $12.5 million and dropping thousands of lawsuits against the federal government.

Daily Beast reported in March:

“One of the experiences we had,” Gibney said on Wednesday during a lunch with journalists at HBO’s Midtown Manhattan headquarters, “is that when we went to license footage from the major networks they all declined to license it to us for legal reasons…One of the reasons is that the Church is so litigious and so aggressive in threatening to keep stuff from being in the media.”

Gibney added: “I found that interesting…that this somehow was too perilous to touch, because the Church beats its breast and says, ‘If you show that material, we’re going to sue you.’”
