Durable goods disappoints, the people were not purchasing the big ticket items. Spending on homes dropped, existing, new home purchases declined at a time in the summer when they are suppose to be doing well. The bubble is popping, traffic is drying up. Trump wins trade war with the EU, the reshaping of the central banks has begun. The new GDP numbers are out and they are not what they seem, there was a big revision to make it look like the economy is doing well. The White House begins put procedures in place to remove the security clearance of certain individuals. Illegals are being reunited with their families, but not all because they do not have parents in the US. Twitter was caught shadow banning, this is a practice of hiding search results and many companies use this to hide certain information from the public. North Korea is returning the remains of the soldiers. Syria finds weapons at the White Helmet base. Q has dropped more bread crumbs and Q has confirmed the central bank the way we know it today is going to change.

- After two months of declines, Durable Goods Orders were expected to rebound handsomely in June… they didn’t.
- Against expectations of a 3.0% MoM surge in Durable Goods Orders, the Census Bureau reported a meager +1.0% increase…
- However, thanks to the military-industrial complex – which saw defense spending rise 20.2% MoM – the number remained positive...
- The national slowdown was particularly unkind to the province of BC.
- National home sales fell 11% year-over-year in June,
- As sales dipped, so too did the total amount spent on real estate. The total dollar volume dipped 12% year-over-year in June, totaling C$23.5 billion. A tough blow to government tax coffers which have reaped record sums of property tax dollars in recent years.
- June’s 6.7% surge get revised lower to just 3.9%, but June tumbled 5.3% MoM (well below expectations).
- This is the biggest MoM drop in New Home Sales since Dec 2017… and this follows a plunge in Housing Starts in June.
- Demand weakened in three of four U.S. regions, including a 7.7 percent drop in the South, the largest area. The decline in sales left 301,000 homes available nationwide in June, the most since March 2009.
- Refis are down 30% YoY…
- There’s no question in my mind now that the housing “snowball” has started downhill and it won’t take long to develop into an avalanche. In addition to all of the “for sale” and “for rent” signs I’m seeing with my own eyes popping up around Denver, I’ve been receiving emails from subscribers describing the same thing in their area. –
- The existing and new home sales reports this week were worse than everyone expected. Given the statistical manipulation tools used by the National Association of Realtors (existing home sales) and the Census Bureau (new home sales) – both entities use the same regression software – one can only wonder about the true rate of home sales decline.
- This explains why the homebuilder stocks are in an official “bear market,” with some homebuilder stocks down over 30% since late January. I have yet to hear or read about this fact from the mainstream financial media or Wall Street.
- Today’s new home sales report, along with the serial decline in the housing starts data, disproves the “low inventory” narrative. Affordability, rising rates and a shrinking pool of potential homebuyers who can qualify for a conforming mortgage has torpedoed demand. The latest U of Michigan Consumer Sentiment report featured this chart on homebuying sentiment:
As you can see, the consumer “sentiment” toward buying a home is at its lowest reading since 2008. This is not a fact that would ever show up in the mainstream financial reporting on the housing market.
- President Donald Trump on Wednesday won concessions from Europe.
- “We want to further strengthen this trade relationship. We agreed today to work together toward zero tariffs, zero non-tariffs barriers, and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods,” Trump announced at a press conference on the White House lawn Wednesday.
- Trump met with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker Wednesday to discuss trade.
- “We will also work to reduce barriers and increase trade in services, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, medical products, as well as soybeans,” Trump said. “The European Union is going to start almost immediately to buy a lot of soybeans.”
- The agreement on soybeans could offset China’s attempt to harm U.S. farmers by subjecting them to tariffs. China has been the biggest market for U.S. soybeans.
- “It will make trade fairer and more reciprocal,” Trump said. “This was a very big day for free and fair trade.”
- one aspect of today’s GDP report that was largely ignored, was the wide-ranging revision to historical data that the BEA released alongside the latest numbers. What it showed was a doozy: on a chained (real) dollar basis, the US economy was estimated to have reached a $18.5 trillion level in Q2 2018. Putting this number in context, the last pre-revision number was $17.37 trillion as of Q1, which has now been revised to $18.3 trillion. This means that the BEA has “revised” the US economy to be $1 trillion higher, which while generally arbitrary and likely involves fudging the deflator, will mean that US debt/GDP just dropped significantly.
- The revision also hit the nominal, unadjusted numbers, which increased by a smaller margin, but enough to push the US economy to its first $20+ trillion level, or $20.4 trillion to be exact.
- President Donald Trump has started “the mechanism” for pulling security clearances from “certain individuals,” a White House aide revealed Tuesday.
- White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley told reporters aboard Air Force One traveling to Joint Base Andrews in Camp Springs, Maryland, that the administration has begun taking the necessary steps to revoke access to classified information from former top intelligence officials but declined to get into specifics.
- US government lawyers in a document filed a few hours ahead of a court-mandated deadline said 1,442 migrant children over the age of five have been reunited with their parents.
- A US federal court gave the government until end of day July 26 to reunite all migrant children that were separated from their parents as the result of the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.
- “Children discharged by being reunified with parents in ICE custody under the government’s plan: 1,442,” the court document revealed on Thursday. “Children in care… where the adult associated with the child is either not eligible for reunification or not available for discharge at this time: 711.”
- VICE reported that Twitter was “limiting visibility of prominent Republicans in search results — a technique known as ‘shadow banning’ — in what it says is a side effect of its attempts to improve the quality of discourse on the platform.”
- North Korea will transfer the remains of an unspecified number of soldiers killed in the Korean War on Friday, after accepting about 100 wooden caskets sent by the United States.
- The planned transfer would coincide with the 65th anniversary of the 1953 armistice agreement that ended fighting.
- A U.S. military transport plane was set to fly to an airfield in North Korea’s northeastern city of Wonsan to accept the remains, Yonhap reported. They would then be flown to Hawaii after an initial DNA analysis at Osan air base in South Korea.
- The Syrian authorities have released the first photos from the White Helmets base that was uncovered by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in southwest Syria this morning.
- t is still not entirely clear why these weapons were stored inside of this White Helmets base; however, a local source told Al-Masdar that the explosives could have been stored in the base after the Islamic State (ISIS) took over the town.
President Donald Trump has multiple reasons as to why he should take control of the Federal Reserve. He will do so both because he can and because his broader policies argue that he should do so.
Grant says if the Federal Reserve continues raising interest rates it will slow down economic growth.
The 2 + 2 confirmations which Q references are, I believe, his two previous posts about the Federal Reserve (which I posted in the previous article), and the two news articles you see before you.
I can’t wait to see what specific course of action Trump ends up taking.
No R’s, no X’s, no T’s, no Z’s.
Not so sure this is a message to us, but to all the good men and women working throughout the intelligence community.
That said, it didn’t stop #anons from getting in on the action:
Although, I will add here that Q did invoke a marker he had used twice before; “The time is now.”
I’m not sure what the marker signifies. You would think “the time is now” would refer to something in the present, but he’s been saying it since November – so I don’t think that’s it. There’s also nothing, as far as I can see, thematically connecting these drops, and nothing with the timestamps.
My best guess is that it’s some kind of operational signal in relation to “the plan” we’ve talked about before; Q’s Grand Plan, if you will.
Q has said in the past that “timetables shift.” I think this is what that marker relates to – shifting timetables. QTeam has to take into account all sorts of variables for their plan to go off without a hitch, so depending on how different people and political actors in the world respond to certain actions undertaken by the Trump administration, QTeam has all sorts of counter-responses they can take to ensure the plan continues along, as “scheduled.”
Now, we can speculate as to what events causes these timetable shifts in the past, but I think you’ll see the most recent one very clearly at the end of this article.
Q+!!! POTUS speaking!
Now this was a very interesting, because some enterprising anons stepped in and pretty much decoded this stringer:
Wild stuff, huh?
Pray for the speedy and safe release of this man, if you would.
What’s REALLY staggering, however, is that Clowns tried to use the stringer as a setup for a False Flag, but were called out by Anons who were quicker than them.
What anon did here is search for the stringer on youtube, and timestamp his post with no results as proof that no such video with that title existed.
Later, a Clown posted a youtube link to a video with a Tel Aviv skyline in it.
Think they were going to try to attack here and play it off as Q’s “cray-zay followers’ fault?”
They’ve already done worse.
Good job, anon. You might have saved lives with this post.
Q’s quoting from the Declaration of Independence, in case that wasn’t clear.
We’re “throwing off” such a Government, and providing new Guards for our future security.
Now here’s the story I was talking about; the potential impetus for such a “timetable shift,” because we had a binary outcome here: the EU could either agree to no tariffs, or they could disagree and force POTUS to use tariffs.
In planning out Q’s Grand Plan, QTeam needed to account for both outcomes.
If they got the good one, they could signal “the time is now.”
That’s just speculation on my part, but I think you can see where I’m coming from.
Trump posted a video on Twitter after they struck a deal, by the way:
“The United States and the European Union have a $1 TRILLION bilateral trade relationship – the largest economic relationship in the world. We want to further strengthen this trade relationship to the benefit of all American and European citizens… https://t.co/4zlmEEtCpG”
Q asked a question:
AFTER SUCH AN ENORMOUS ANNOUNCEMENT WHAT QUESTION(S) WERE SHOUTED @ POTUS?
Unfortunately, I could not find a source that had clear enough audio to determine the actual questions that were shouted at him. You hear several voices in the clip #POTUS tweeted, but their words are faint and unclear. Likewise, every other source I watched of the Rose Garden announcement was also too unclear.
I did attempt to isolate the audio track from the cleanest source I could find, and clean it up a bit further, but it’s still very hard to hear.
I get bits and pieces of words, like the female reporter yelling, ‘DO YOU NOW ACKNOWLEDGE [unintelligible] PAYMENT…” But that’s about it. Maybe you guys will have better luck sussing this out or finding a cleaner source.
Q says “RUSSIA DELAY IN MEETING PUTIN (DC),” but I can’t hear the full question in regards to that. Regardless, his point is that the MSM isn’t our friend.
This is still hilarious, though:
Here’s Q’s link as well:
Sen. Claire McCaskill’s (D-MO) husband’s business dealings have received $131 million in federal government money, according to a report.
Businesses with ties to Sen. Claire McCaskill’s (D-MO) husband have received $131 million in federal government subsidies since McCaskill’s election to the Senate in 2007, according to a report released Tuesday.
The Kansas City Star reported that McCaskill’s husband, Joseph Shepard, had personal income from investments in federally-funded housing projects receiving money from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that grew exponentially after McCaskill took office in 2007.
In 2006, the year before McCaskill became a senator, McCaskill’s husband reported making between $1,608 and $16,731 from these investments. In 2017, five years into McCaskill’s second Senate term, Shepard reported earning between $365,374 and $1,118,158 in personal income from his investments.
It’s a nice gig, if you can get it, right? Pffft. When can we lock these criminals up, Q?
Check out this line near the end, though:
McCaskill is considered to be one of the most vulnerable Democratic senators up for re-election in 2018, since her state went for President Trump in the 2016 presidential election.
The most recent Real Clear Politics (RCP) average of polls places McCaskill with a one-percent lead over her Republican opponent, Josh Hawley—which is within the margin of error.
You have to remember how much the Cabal, but the Democrats specifically, have relied on tampering with the voting machines to win elections. It’s one of the reasons why “they never expected her to lose.”
And Q is dropping this during a week when, just a few days ago, this story came out:
Election hacking: Despite previous denials, top vendor admits it sold systems with remote access to states
I think Q is signalling that she won’t be able to win this; not this time. Let’s hope the right guy wins this time.
And as for “GO KANSAS!”
Pompeo testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today:
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the Helsinki summit
Here’s the whole testimony:
His responses to Booker and Menendez are particularly notable. (They’re both towards the very end).
“Senator, there is vigorous debate in this Administration about lots of things, there is no doubt about that. The President didn’t hire a single shrinkin’ violet, not a one of us!”
TOP KEK, Kansas.
And then that death stare at the end to Menendez, and –
“Not a word.”
It was at that moment he was done communicating, and he just knew what is awaiting Menendez in the very near future. It was like he was thinking, “Don’t worry, buddy. You’ll get yours.”
Neoconservative Senator John McCain (R-AZ), a nemesis of President Donald Trump, received boos at Turning Point USA’s High School Leadership Summit when his name was mentioned by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) as an individual who derailed Trump’s Obamacare repeal efforts. “The reason we didn’t repeal is because we have six or seven Republican senators who got cold feet,” Paul stated. “Let’s just say, John McCain, and a few others.” McCain’s mention immediately received boos from the strongly pro-Trump audience. McCain’s decision last year to abandon his campaign promises and vote against every one of the Trump administration’s repeal bills prominently…
Think his “cancer” has come back yet?
/u/Abibliaphobia had a good theory on when this trip happened. Hopefully he/she doesn’t mind me reposting their scribe here:
I’d still like some kind of solid date confirmation, but this is some solid speculation.
Well, they’re certainly trying to get him.
Ecuador is ready to hand over the WikiLeaks founder to the UK in “coming weeks or even days,” RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said citing her own sources, as prospects of his eviction from the embassy are back in the media.
I don’t think POTUS will allow that to happen.
The news unlocks in about an hour (as of this writing).
Stay tuned! Big things are happening – with EVEN BIGGER THINGS to come!
