October 19, 2022 | Australia to Pay Funeral Expenses of Those Who DIED From Mandatory Vaccine

Australia imposed some of the harshest lockdown laws in the world. They built quarantine camps and forcibly imprisoned citizens. They mandated the “safe and effective” vaccine – and now, they are offering to cover the funeral expenses of those who have died from the jab. This is not a parody. The Australian Government has implemented […]

The US National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI), designed to gauge market conditions, fell to 38 in October from 46 in September, now 50% lower than it was six months ago (below 50 is considered negative), and the largest year over year decline in history. Builders cite higher interest rates […]

October 18, 2022 | Eagles Fans Heckle Jill Biden — Will Philly Turn Red?

COMMENT: Dear Mr. Armstrong – Did you see this at last night’s game in Philadelphia (practically Biden’s backyard right near Delaware)? With the crowd so direct in a public manner, it’ll be tough to believe that Democrats would win in PA … maybe?   REPLY: As someone who grew up in South Jersey, let’s just […]

October 18, 2022 | Record Tightening Priced into Treasuries, Equities Not Yet

As shown below, since 1999, courtesy of The Daily Shot, the US 10-year minus 2-year Treasury bond yield spread at -.52 last week was the most negative since the onset of the 2001-02  and 2007-09 US recessions. An imminent recession is also predicted by Bloomberg probability models that now forecast a 100% likelihood of a US […]

The NAHB index for traffic of prospective buyers dropped to […]

October 18, 2022 | The Saretsky Report – October 2022

It was another slow month for the Greater Vancouver housing market in September. While housing activity was historically low, there is still much to talk about across the housing spectrum. The volatility across global financial markets has been extreme and that is no doubt having a major influence on our local housing market. Interest rates […]

October 17, 2022 | The Next Winter of Death

Remember when Biden publicly chastised the unvaccinated population last year? Do the “right thing,” and you will “get through this.” Those selfish enough to choose medical autonomy, the president stated, were “looking at a winter of severe illness and death for yourselves, your families, and the hospitals you may soon overwhelm.” We have definitive proof […]

October 17, 2022 | The Coming Move To $50 Silver (AND BEYOND)

Twice over the past 42 years, the price of silver has risen to $50; once back in 1980 and again 11 years ago, in 2011.  Obviously, no one would argue that something that occurred twice already is not capable of happening again. On both prior silver price peaks, prices then fell quickly. However, the next […]

October 17, 2022 | Faulty Models & Mortgage Fraud

The closely watched US Consumer price index surprised to the upside last week. Consumer prices rose by 0.4% in September, and while inflation is decelerating, down to 8.2% year-over-year, it remains extremely elevated. The recent advance was broad based, with Shelter, food and medical care being the largest contributors. Shelter inflation is surging, at least […]

October 16, 2022 | Pension Sandpile

Sandpiles can be fun. Nothing beats taking kids to the beach (or being a kid!) and watching their creativity blossom into all kinds of magical shapes. The problem with sand construction is it doesn’t last. I have it on good authority that building your house on the sand probably won’t end well. The same holds for financial […]

October 16, 2022 | October ‘Surprise’ Too Widely Advertised?

The spread between permabulls and permabears is at an extreme these days, even for October. This is the month when pessimists’ hopes are highest that an epic bear market will correct dangerous excesses that have been building up in the financial system for more than 50 years. A presumptive and welcome side effect of such […]
