  1. There seems to be something of a consensus forming among the non-Keynesian money pundits that the current attempt by the Fed, and other central banks, to tighten the money supply, will reverse. Drawing liquidity out of the markets is an attempt to tame inflation by engineering a mild recession. The thinking is this will dampen demand for goods and services thereby taming prices. One danger is that the stock market will react more negatively than anticipated, forcing the central money managers to reverse the raising of interest rates, thereby reinfusing money back into the market because the politicians won’t be able to stand the heat. The timeline on this reversion of policy looks to be August/September. It may be at this time when the printing presses wind back up.

    I have described this process as neutrally and generously as I can, without falling into the invective of name calling central planners who are so corrupt and incompetent that they are criminal.

    What is in fact happening is the extending and pretending of a debt-is-money fiat currency system that is irretrievably insolvent. Meanwhile, suppression of the King of Truth continues. Suppression of the only true money, precious metals, will continue until it cannot. This will most likely begin the bifurcation of the money system into one that sees real savings accomplished in pm’s, and daily mediums of exchange done with an overhauled government fiat that provides more of the confidence in the mediums of exchange that will assuredly be lost in the next two years. Perhaps silver will be used as a backstop, or gold, but to do so they must be permitted to discover their true values. Such price discovery will probably not originate in the west, but in the east, where preparations for such an event have been years in the making.

    One hour long:

    • Perhaps the scoundrels started to panic with so many people transferring to gold and silver, under their mattresses, in a can, anywhere but the bank, out of Justine’s reach.

  3. DAILY MAIL – Biden closes in on a deal to resettle refugees in SPAIN to help deal with the surge of migrants at the southern border and Canada vows to take in Haitian migrants seeking work who have tried to cross from Mexico

    President Biden is preparing to close a deal at the Summit of the Americas next week with Spain and Canada to accept migrants from the western hemisphere

    The deal is meant to help the U.S. as it faces hundreds of thousands of migrants illegally entering over the southern border from Mexico

    It is also aimed at assisting with labor shortages in Spain

    Canada is planning to announce new ‘recruitment and promotion’ efforts to give jobs to Haitian migrants who tried to cross into the U.S.

    The Summit of the Americas is being held in Los Angeles, California next week

    AXIOS – Scoop: Biden set to secure historic refugee deal with Spain

    The Biden administration is expecting a commitment from Spain — set to be announced at next week’s Summit of the Americas — to resettle refugees from the Western Hemisphere for the first time ever, according to internal planning documents reviewed by Axios.

    Why it matters: The pledge — along with other expected commitments from Canada — could provide a political boost to President Biden, whose administration has continued to grapple with unmanageable volumes of asylum seekers at the southern border.

    The documents show Canada plans to significantly expand its refugee commitment to the region and announce new recruitment efforts to bring Haitians into the country for work.
    These are the first details of major deliverables tied to the summit in Los Angeles, which has been marred by boycott threats over reports that the administration would exclude the authoritarian leaders of Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua.

    Yes, but: One senior Canadian government official told Axios, “Conversations are still ongoing and no decisions have been taken regarding specific commitments on migration at next week’s summit.”

    Details: The initial number of refugees resettled by Spain, which has been struggling to resolve a labor shortage, would be “modest” but “symbolically important,” according to the documents.

    Spain is also expected to agree to double or triple the number of temporary workers from Central America currently accepted through an employment-based migration program.
    News of the planned commitment comes on the heels of talks in Madrid hosted by the Spain-U.S. Working Group on Central America, which met last week for the first time.
    Spain’s embassy in the U.S. had not provided comment at the time of publication. The White House declined to comment.
    Context: Spanish colonial rule in the Americas ended over a century ago, but Spain still maintains close cultural and political ties with the region and views itself as Latin America’s top advocate in the European Union.

    “Spain first became a major destination for immigrants in the late 1990s and 2000s as its economy grew, including from Central and South America,” the Migration Policy Institute’s Kate Hooper told Axios.
    While some provisions allowing visa-free travel have tightened a bit, Spain “remains a popular destination for Spanish-speaking countries,” she said.
    Nearly 626,000 people born in Central America and the Caribbean are living in Spain — 8.5% of the foreign-born population there, according to government data.
    Meanwhile, Canada’s “recruitment and promotion” strategy for Haitians would come as THOUSANDS OF MIGRANTS FROM THE DISASTER-STRICKEN ISLAND have attempted to cross the U.S.-Mexico border monthly.

    In September, more than 10,000 Haitian migrants formed a makeshift shelter under a bridge, drawing international attention and scrutiny over their treatment by U.S. authorities.
    Axios recently reported Homeland Security intelligence is tracking around 10,000 Haitians waiting just south of the border, ready to cross.
    Canada is also expected to announce a new target of 5,000 refugees over multiple years from the Western Hemisphere.

    That’s a drop in the bucket compared to the hundreds of thousands of people who have attempted to cross the U.S.-Mexico border in the past year.
    But it would mark a significant increase for the region’s northern-most neighbor, which welcomed fewer than 1,500 refugees from the hemisphere between January 2015 and March 2022, according to Canadian government data.
    The big picture: The commitments would be part of a “Los Angeles Declaration” unveiled at the summit, according to the documents.

    It’s unclear what further policies will be included in the declaration or whether there will be a focus on any particular nationalities for refugee resettlement in Canada or Spain.

    Migration issues will be a focus of the ninth installment of the summit, which is being hosted in the U.S. for the first time since 1994.

    reuters – U.S. in talks with Spain, Canada about taking more refugees -sources

    WASHINGTON, June 1 (Reuters) – The Biden administration is in talks with Spain and Canada about taking more Western Hemisphere refugees for resettlement, people familiar with the matter said on Wednesday, signaling possible commitments that could be announced at next week’s Summit of the Americas.

    Separate proposals are under consideration by the Spanish and Canadian governments but no decisions have been made, the sources said, as President Joe Biden’s aides prepared to seek greater regional cooperation on tackling irregular migration when he hosts fellow leaders in Los Angeles.

    The Axios news site was the first to report possible migration commitments from Spain and Canada, citing internal planning documents.

    Two of the sources told Reuters the numbers under consideration for possible resettlement in Spain and Canada were modest, given that the United States was facing a record number of migrant arrivals at the U.S.-Mexican border.

    A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed talks with Canada on taking in more migrants, and a second U.S. source said the Biden administration wanted to use the hemispheric summit to pressure other countries to do the same.

    Spain, if it agrees to take action, would be accepting refugees beyond its long-standing program for bringing in temporary workers from Central America.

    Canada, which has a long tradition as a safe-haven country, is weighing whether to take in larger numbers of regional refugees and also to increase the number of Haitian workers it allows in, the source in Washington said.

    The White House referred questions to the Spanish and Canadian governments. Canada’s immigration department did not immediately respond to a request for comment. There was no immediate word from Spanish authorities.

    It was unclear whether those whom Spain might agree to resettle would be from among asylum seekers who arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border or whether they would be required to apply at U.S. embassies and consulates in the region or via international refugee agencies, one person familiar with the matter said.

  5. zero hedge – US Engaged In “Offensive” Cyber Ops Against Russia In Ukraine: NSA Director

    The US military has issued a stunning but perhaps not entirely unexpected admission that it has been conducting offensive cyber operations in support of Ukraine. It marks the first ever such acknowledgement, and suggests – as many observers have long suspected – a deeper Pentagon and US intelligence role in Ukraine against the Russian military than previously thought.

    National Security Agency (NSA) and US Cyber Command Director Gen. Paul Nakasone told the UK’s Sky News on Wednesday, “We’ve conducted a series of operations across the full spectrum: offensive, defensive, [and] information operations.” This includes “offensive hacking operations” he said.

    […]And like any powerful deep state insider of the intelligence community, he referenced alleged Kremlin attempts to influence US elections. “We had an opportunity to start talking about what particularly the Russians were trying to do in our midterm elections. We saw it again in 2020, as we talked about what the Russians and Iranians were going to do, but this was on a smaller scale.”

    […]

    Despite the whole Russian military and intelligence machine being currently entrenched and busy executing the over 3-month war in Ukraine, the American public is further being told Moscow is now eyeing ‘interference’ in the upcoming midterms next Fall.

    europravda – Explained: Why an EU embargo on Russian gas might be a long way off

    • the guardian – Russia is winning the economic war – and Putin is no closer to withdrawing troops

      The perverse effects of sanctions means rising fuel and food costs for the rest of the world – and fears are growing of a humanitarian catastrophe.

      […]There is, though, no immediate sign of Russia pulling out of Ukraine and that’s hardly surprising, because the sanctions have had the perverse effect of driving up the cost of Russia’s oil and gas exports, massively boosting its trade balance and financing its war effort. In the first four months of 2022, Putin could boast a current account surplus of $96bn (£76bn) – more than treble the figure for the same period of 2021.

      When the EU announced its partial ban on Russian oil exports earlier this week, the cost of crude oil on the global markets rose, providing the Kremlin with another financial windfall. Russia is finding no difficulty finding alternative markets for its energy, with exports of oil and gas to China in April up more than 50% year on year.

      […]If proof were needed that sanctions are not working, then President Joe Biden’s decision to supply Ukraine with advanced rocket systems provides it. The hope is that modern military technology from the US will achieve what energy bans and the seizure of Russian assets have so far failed to do: force Putin to withdraw his troops.

      […]Putin is not going to surrender unconditionally, and the potential for severe collateral damage from the economic war is obvious: falling living standards in developed countries; famine, food riots and a debt crisis in the developing world.

    • bloomberg – How the World Is Paying for Putin’s War in Ukraine

      Russia is still taking in billions from sales of oil, gas and other commodities

      In early March, as the US and its allies unleashed a wave of sanctions on Russia, President Joe Biden stood in the White House and said they wanted to deal a “powerful blow to Putin’s war machine.”

      But as the war in Ukraine approaches its 100th day, that machine is still very much operational. Russia is being propelled by a flood of cash that could average $800 million a day this year — and that’s just what the commodity superpower is raking in from oil and gas.

      For years, Russia has acted as a vast commodity supermarket selling what an insatiable world has needed: Not just energy, but wheat, nickel, aluminum and palladium too. The invasion of Ukraine has pushed the US and the European Union to rethink this relationship. It’s taking time, though the EU took a further step this week by hammering out a compromise agreement on Russian oil imports.

      Russia is far from unscathed by the sanctions, which have made it a pariah across the developed world. Corporate giants have fled, many walking away from billions of dollars of assets, and the economy is heading for a deep recession. But Putin can ignore this damage for now, because his coffers are overflowing with the revenue from commodities, which have become more lucrative than ever thanks to the surge in global prices driven in part by the war in Ukraine.

      Even with some countries halting or phasing out energy purchases, Russia’s oil-and-gas revenue will be about $285 billion this year, according to estimates from Bloomberg Economics based on Economy Ministry projections. That would exceed the 2021 figure by more than one-fifth. Throw in other commodities, and it more than makes up for the $300 billion in foreign reserves frozen as part of the sanctions.

      EU leaders know that they should stop buying from Russia and indirectly funding a devastating war on Europe’s doorstep. But for all that ambition, national governments also know there will be repercussions for their own economies.

      They agreed this week to pursue a partial ban on Russian oil, paving the way for a sixth package of sanctions, but only after weeks of haggling and division.

      “There are always political constraints on the use of sanctions,” said Jeffrey Schott, a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute in Washington. “You want to maximize the pain on your target and minimize the pain on your constituency at home, but unfortunately, that’s easier said than done.”

      In the US, officials are debating ways to ratchet up the financial pressure, possibly by helping to impose a cap on the price of Russian oil or slapping sanctions on countries and companies still trading with Russian businesses under restrictions. But such secondary sanctions are deeply divisive and risk damaging relations with other countries.

      The US has already banned Russian oil, but Europe is only slowly weaning itself off this dependency. That’s giving Moscow time to find other markets — such as commodity guzzling behemoths China and India — to limit any to damage to export revenue, and its financial war chest.

      That means the money is gushing into Russia’s accounts, and the financial figures are a constant reminder to the West that dramatic change is needed. Oil-export revenue alone is up 50% from a year earlier, according to the International Energy Agency. Russia’s top oil producers made their highest combined profit in almost a decade in the first quarter, Moscow-based SberCIB Investment Research estimates. And wheat exports continue — at higher prices — as sanctions on Russian agriculture aren’t even being discussed because the world needs its grain.

      The current account surplus, the broadest measure of trade in goods and services, more than tripled in the first four months of the year to almost $96 billion. That figure, the highest since at least 1994, mainly reflected a surge in commodity prices, though a plunge in imports under the weight of international sanctions was also a factor.

      The ruble has become another symbol used by Putin to project strength. Once mocked by Biden as “rubble” when it initially collapsed in response to the sanctions, it’s since been propped up by Russia to become the world’s best-performing currency against the dollar this year.

      Putin has also tried to leverage Russia’s position as a commodity superpower. Amid concern about food shortages, he’s said he’ll allow exports of grain and fertilizer only if the sanctions on his country are lifted.

      “If the goal of sanctions was to stop the Russian military, it wasn’t realistic,” said Janis Kluge, senior associate for Eastern Europe and Eurasia at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs in Berlin. “It can still fund the war effort, it can still compensate for some of the damage sanctions are doing to its population.”

      One of the big holes in the sanctions against Russia is the willingness of other nations to continue oil purchases, albeit at a discount in some cases.

      Indian refiners purchased more than 40 million barrels of Russian oil between the start of the Ukraine invasion in late February and early May. That’s 20% more than Russia-India flows for the whole of 2021, according to Bloomberg calculations based on trade ministry data. Refiners are seeking private deals instead of public tenders to get Russian barrels cheaper than market prices.

      China is also strengthening its energy links with the country, securing cheaper prices by buying oil that’s being shunned elsewhere. It’s boosted imports and is also in talks to replenish its strategic crude stockpiles with Russian oil.

      It’s a similar story for steelmakers and coking coal. Imports from Russia rose for a third month in April to more than double last year’s level, according to official custom office data. And some sellers of Russian oil and coal have tried to make things easier for Chinese buyers by allowing transactions in yuan.

      “The vast majority of the world is not involved in imposing sanctions,” said Wouter Jacobs, founder and director of the Erasmus Commodity & Trade Centre at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. “The trade will go on, the need for fuels will be there” and buyers in Asia or the Middle East will step up, he said.

      When it comes to gas, Russia has fewer options for diverting supplies, but the countries at the end of pipelines from Russia — some of which run through Ukraine — are also locked into a mutual dependency.

      About 40% of the EU’s gas needs are met by Russia, and this will be the bloc’s hardest link to sever. European deliveries even jumped in February and March as the invasion caused a price spike in European gas hubs, making purchases from Russia’s Gazprom PJSC cheaper for most customers with long-term contracts.

      Volumes have decreased since then, thanks to warmer weather and record inflows of liquefied natural gas from the US and other countries. There’s also been disruptions because of military activity, and Russia itself halted supplies to Poland, Bulgaria and Finland, which refused Putin’s demand to pay in rubles.

      Even as the EU reduces its dependency — Germany says it’s down to 35% from 55% — there are complications at every step. Several big buyers of Russian gas have gone out of their way to keep buying the crucial fuel, and utilities such as Italy’s Eni SpA and Germany’s Uniper SE expect supplies to continue.

      While progress is slow, the direction is only toward more and more restrictions. Even with the uncertain timetable, the pressure on the Russian economy, and Putin’s finances, will eventually mount.

      The country’s energy sector is also facing an array of other factors beyond demand, from shipping and insurance restrictions to weak domestic demand. Oil production may drop more than 9% this year, while gas output may decline 5.6%, according to Russian Economy Ministry’s base-case outlook.

      “In the Kremlin there’s some optimism and even surprise that the Russian economy didn’t collapse from the onslaught of sanction,” said Tatiana Stanovaya, founder of political consultant R.Politik. “But looking ahead two to three years, there’s a lot of questions about how the energy and manufacturing sectors will survive.”

      Russia restricts exports of Helium & Neon sourced by Western & E Asian microchip firms

      Russia has restricted the export of gases (Helium, Neon etc) necessary for the production of microchips and this could adversely impact firms in USA, Japan, South Korea and Netherlands among others.

      The deliveries will now be carried out only by the decision of the Government of the Russian Federation, according to a resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers.

      The restrictions were a response to the ban on supplying Russia with semiconductors necessary for the production of microchips.

      However, without Russian neon, argon and helium, it will be more difficult for some countries to produce electronics, sources claimed.

      The world markets are highly dependent on Russian supplies — they provide up to 30% of neon consumption.

      Russia will be able to export these gases in exchange for importing semiconductors. The Ministry of Industry and Trade has confirmed that it will take into account the agreements reached when taking decisions on export supplies of these gases.

      In April, the White House warned chipmakers to diversify their supply chains in case Russia reacts to tech export restrictions by blocking U.S. access to some key materials for making chips. These fears were reinforced by a Techcet report, which highlighted the dependence of semiconductor manufacturers on materials of Russian and Ukrainian origin, such as neon and palladium.

    To prevent pandemics, we need to be able to do it. Here’s how.

    […]It’s horrifying to think what COVID-19 would be doing to humanity if it weren’t for vaccines.

    […]The world has a lot to be proud of in the creation and delivery of these vaccines. Scientists have never developed one nearly as quickly as they did in 2020,

    […]It too scientists only one year to create safe and effective vaccines for the virus

    […]In the next outbreak, we may not be so lucky. It could be caused by a virus that scientists haven’t studied as closely, or by one they’ve never seen at all.

    […]To prevent the inequities we’ve seen in COVID-19, the world needs to be ready to produce enough vaccines for everyone on the planet within six months of discovering a new pathogen. That’s 8 billion doses for a single-dose vaccine, and 16 billion for a two-dose version.

    […]The creation of the first mRNA vaccines during the COVID-19 pandemic was a big step forward.

    […]the development of new vaccines will be exponentially faster—as long as researchers have the same deep understanding of future pathogens as they did of coronaviruses.
