The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network. Take you through several stories about the whole transgender movement, which is highly alarming. I want you to especially pay attention to it from a public school perspective.
So if you have children or grandchildren in the public school system, I want you to listen particularly closely, because this is a growing movement inside the public school system, which is owned and operated by the progressives and dangers coming after children grooming, I don't think is too strong of a word. So I'm going to get to that. But there was a and then I'm going to do this Twitter thing first. But I wanted to remind on Friday, I forgot, Brad Harbaugh from Capital Commission called in. And we've got two VIP tickets available for seeing an Irish Christmas with Keith and Kristen Getty.
They're absolutely amazing. And so this is going to be on Tuesday, December 20th, here in the Raleigh area at the Shepherd's Church, which is in Cary. I used to be known as Colonial Baptist, incredible church, incredible pastor Stephen Davey. So either in the second or third segment today, I'm going to remind you and say go first two callers. These are two hundred and fifty dollar tickets.
OK, two hundred fifty dollars apiece because it also involves a meet and greet. And did you see that the last video end on Facebook? We have so many Facebook issues lately. Thank you, Elon Musk. They got to start cleaning up Facebook next because there's issues all over the place these days.
But that's been going on for a couple of years. So I'll say that either second or third segment and I'll say ready, set, go. Literally the first caller to come in to call in will get the tickets. There are two tickets. This is for next Tuesday, December 20th. The VIP meet and greet with the Gettys is from five to six p.m. concerts at seven p.m.
So incredible seats in the first few rows. And so two tickets, two VIP tickets. I'm going to give away in either the second or third segment of the show to the very first caller. So don't call in now and sit on hold. You just got to wait till I say go in the very first caller. But that's here in the Raleigh area.
Carrie next Tuesday, December 20th. These are VIP tickets with a meet and greet included. Their value is $250 apiece.
OK, so quite a little gift there for Christmas. OK, so earlier today, I want to take you through this. This is Twitter files, part five. This was on Barry Weiss's. She was brought to The New York Times to try to bring some conservative voices in there.
That didn't go well. So they think they fired her. But this is one of the people that Elon is using to publicize things that are going on behind the scenes. This is all specific to deplatforming Donald Trump. So I'm going to take you through these. And then I've got some of these very important stories on the whole trans movement that you need to understand. But there's a lot going on here. And this is a big deal, obviously, because the influence of Twitter over the years and them shadow banning people, literally turning down your volume and then flat out banning people or deplatforming them.
Like the leader of the free world, in this case, the president of the United States. So I'm just going to take you through these and I won't finish them all right in this segment. I'll pick them up in the second segment.
We'll get through them as fast as I can. I just want you to understand what's going on because the mainstream media is not talking about it because it does not fit their narratives. That's why they're giving it no time whatsoever.
Their job is to make money and they make money by feeding their troll, progressive, liberal Democrat audience. OK, so they don't want to hear this stuff. So they're not going to talk about it. Don't expect them to. On the morning of January 8th, President Donald Trump, with one remaining strike before being at risk of permanent suspension from Twitter, tweets twice 6.46 a.m. to 75 million great American patriots who voted for me, America first and make America great again, will have a giant voice long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form. Then at 7.44 a.m., this is on January 6th, to all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the inauguration on January 20th.
That's it. For years, Twitter had resisted calls, both internal and external, to ban Trump on the grounds that blocking a world leader from the platform and removing their controversial tweets would hide important information that people should be able to see and debate. This is the fifth tweet from Barry Weiss. Our mission is to provide a forum that, quote, this is a Twitter quote, that enables people to be informed and to engage their leaders directly, the company wrote in 2019. Twitter's aim was to protect the public's right to hear from their leaders and to hold them accountable. Number six, but after January 6th, as Tabibi and Shelyn Birmingham, I don't know who these people are, have documented, these are people helping to release the Twitter files, pressure grew both inside and outside of Twitter to ban Trump. There were dissenters inside Twitter, quote, maybe because I am from China, said one employee on January 7th, I deeply understand how censorship can destroy the public conversation.
No kidding. But why would we listen to somebody from Communist China as if they have any experience with this? But voices like that one appear to have been a distinct minority within the company across Slack channels. Many Twitter employees were upset that Trump hadn't been banned earlier. After January 6th, Twitter employees organized to demand their employer ban Trump. There's a lot of employee advocacy happening, quote, unquote, said one Twitter employee. So now they're all going back and forth with pitchforks, right? We have to do the right thing and ban this account, said one staffer.
It's, quote, pretty obvious he's going to try to thread the needle of incitement without violating the rules, said another. So now these are just all the anti-Trump forces inside Twitter. Remember, 98% of Twitter employees give to Democrats or Democrats.
So it's obviously totally bent to the left and they're out for blood. They want to get rid of this guy. They hate Trump. In the early afternoon of January 8th, The Washington Post published an open letter signed by 300 Twitter employees to CEO Jack Dorsey demanding Trump's ban. Quote, We must examine Twitter's complicity in what President-elect Biden has rightly termed insurrection.
But the Twitter staff assigned to evaluate tweets quickly concluded that Trump had not violated Twitter's policies. Quote, I think we'd have a hard time saying this is incitement, wrote one staffer, as if the facts matter. Quote, it's pretty clear he's saying the American patriots are the ones who voted for him and not the terrorists.
We can call them that, right? From Wednesday, referencing January 6th. Another staffer agreed, don't see the incitement angle here. So there is some pressure inside from a few voices.
They're like, we can't just deplatform the president because you don't like him. Quote, I'm also not seeing clear or coded incitement in Donald J. Trump's tweets, wrote Annika Navaroli, a Twitter policy official. I'll respond in the elections channel and say that our team has assessed and found no vios or violations for the DJT one. That's Donald J. Trump.
She does just that. As an FYI, safety has assessed the Trump tweet above and determined that there is no violation of our policies at this time. Later, Navaroli would testify to the House January 6th committee. Quote, for months I had been begging, for months I had been begging and anticipating and attempting to raise the reality that if nothing, if we made no intervention into what I saw occurring, people were going to die. Next, Twitter's safety team decides that Trump's 744 a.m. Eastern Time tweet is also not in violation. They are unequivocal. Quote, it's a clear no vio, meaning no violation. It's just to say he's not attending the inauguration. So how do they then deplatform the president of the United States when they won't deplatform the Ayatollah of Iran or Iran? Sorry to offend you Iranian officials. We'll pick it up there. This is very important when we come back.
Welcome back. It's Steve Noble, The Steve Noble Show, taking you through another dump of Twitter inside information today via Elon Musk. And they're looking at two of Trump's tweets on the day of January 6th.
Neither one of them is a violation. They're saying that inside. There's a growing amounting group of people inside that are like, we got to, you know, we got to get this guy off here. He's dangerous.
Yada, yada, yada. So, but they can't say he's violating their rules. All right. Because he hasn't crossed that threshold with all this mess. So I'm just reading through these.
We're almost done. To understand Twitter's decision to ban Trump, we must consider how Twitter deals with other heads of state and political leaders, including in Iran, Nigeria and Ethiopia. In June of 2018, Iran's Ayatollah Al Khamenei tweeted, hashtag Israel is a malignant cancerous tumor in the West Asian region that has to be removed and eradicated.
It is possible and it will happen. Twitter neither deleted the tweet nor banned the Ayatollah. They're scared. Liberals are scared to death of Muslims. In October 2020, the former Malaysian prime minister said it was a right for Muslims to kill millions of French people. Twitter deleted his tweet for glorifying violence, but he remains on the platform. The tweet below was taken from the Wayback Machine.
That's what he said. Muslims have a right to be angry and to kill millions of French people for the massacres of the past. And they deleted the tweet, but they left him on the platform. Trump?
No, you're out. Mohammed Buhari, the president of Nigeria, incited violence against pro-Biafra groups. Those of us in the fields for 30 months who went through the war, he wrote, will treat them in the language they understand. Twitter deleted the tweet, but didn't ban him. In October 2021, Twitter allowed Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed to call on citizens to take up arms against the Tigray region. Twitter allowed the tweet to remain up and did not ban the prime minister. In early February 2021, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government threatened to arrest Twitter employees in India and to incarcerate them for up to seven years after they restored hundreds of accounts that had been critical to him. Twitter did not ban him either. But Twitter executives did ban Trump, even though key staffers said that Trump had not incited violence, not even in a coded way. Less than 90 minutes after Twitter employees had determined that Trump's tweets were not in violation of Twitter policy, Vijaya Gaddi, Twitter's head of legal policy and trust, asked whether it could, in fact, be coded incitement to further violence. A few minutes later, Twitter employees on the scaled enforcement team suggest that Trump's tweet may have violated Twitter's glorification of violence policy if you interpret the phrase American patriots to refer to the rioters.
See, now we're going to try to get a square peg to fit in a round hole here. Things escalate from there, tweets Barry Weiss. Members of that team came to view him, quote, view him as the leader of a terrorist group responsible for violence and deaths comparable to Christ's church shooter in New Zealand or Hitler. And on that basis and on the totality of his tweets, he should be deplatformed.
These people are psycho. Two hours later, Twitter executives host a 30-minute all-staff meeting. Jack Dorsey and Vijaya Gaddi answer staff questions as to why Trump wasn't banned yet, but they make some employees angrier. Quote, multiple tweets, Twitter employees, have quoted the banality of evil, suggesting that people implementing our policies are like Nazis following orders.
Oh, God. So you get it. You see the point here. They don't have an actual reason to deplatform Trump other than the vast majority of Twitter people hate him because they're uber liberal Democrat progressives. And they hate Trump. They hated him. And they can't stand the fact that somebody that they dislike, disagree with, still has a place on their platform.
This is censorship, classic censorship. You don't want to hear from people that you hate. So you just get rid of them. In a social media platform, you just off them. You're out of here. See it. But they didn't have a viable reason to do it.
But that didn't matter, ultimately, and they deplatformed the guy. Now it's all coming out. And Donald Trump was the biggest fish, but all kinds of other people got deplatformed, shut down, shadow banned, meaning your stuff's not going anywhere.
It looks normal on your side. But when you get behind the curtain there in Twitterverse, they're dialing down and shadow banning all kinds of people. I've never been a big Twitter person.
I read it. I don't post hardly ever. But I do a lot on Facebook. And we were on YouTube and we got permanently banned from YouTube a couple months ago.
Now we're in Rumble. But on Facebook, which is way bigger than Twitter. If it's this bad on Twitter, you know it's bad or worse on Facebook. And so these people, it's like a James Bond movie affecting the minds of hundreds of millions of people, not just here, but around the world. You're only getting one perspective. There's the one they want you to get. And they'll leave some conservatives on there just to make it look like they're fair. But they're not. They might have diversity in how their employees look, but they have no diversity in terms of thought.
And all these places are like that, which is what makes them so dangerous. So it's going to be just keep an eye on this. And, you know, Elon, everybody's cracking jokes.
Elon Musk did not kill himself. This is this is a this is a big battle. It's very important.
And it's way bigger than Trump. Trump's just a great example of just how the hubris of these people to just control the dialogue, which is what tyranny is all about. You control everything, right? It's abuse. It's societal abuse.
It's all about power and control. So keep an eye on that. I wanted to tell you a little bit more about Chloe Cole on the transgendered side. I mentioned her on Friday, the 18 year old leading the fight to protect children from transgender surgeries. And especially if you have kids or grandchildren in public school, OK, because lives of TikTok will show you. If you don't know what lives of TikTok is, look it up, because they're catching the TikToks of these crazy liberal trans LGBTQ advocates in the public school system all over the country. And they're finding their stuff on TikTok and then putting it out there for the rest of us to see.
It's scary and deeply demonic. So this 18 year old woman, Chloe Cole, is rapidly becoming one of the most powerful voices against transitioning children at a moment in which most politicians and media outlets lack the courage to speak out. Chloe Cole is a self-described former trans kid who detransitioned after ongoing years of puberty blockers and an irreversible double mastectomy at 15. Not in another country, folks. This was in America. Cole is now traveling across the country to share her story and raise the alarm about gender transition procedures on children, a growing trend she calls child abuse and medical experimentation.
That is correct. It's Frankenstein, 21st century. I'm planning to keep doing this until it stops, she told the Christian Catholic News Agency. Cole, who grew up in Northern California, was just 11 when she was first exposed to gender ideology through online platforms.
Be very careful. Do you know what your kids and grandkids are looking at online? Quote, I kind of lacked female role models growing up, she said. Cole was also diagnosed with autism, so there's an interesting perhaps link there. It didn't take long before medical professionals fast tracked Cole into medically transitioning from a girl into a boy, which is impossible. A trend, she says, has exploded among children. Cole said Wednesday that her parents, quote, were scared and desperate for answers when she first told them she was a boy and that their decision to sign up on transitioning her was forced under extreme duress. This is so dark. The gender clinic presented my parents with the classic false dichotomy.
I mentioned this on Friday. Would you rather have a dead daughter or a living son? Can you hear the hiss of the snake? Cole was put on puberty blockers and testosterone at just 13 years old, which caused a ripple of negative side effects, including unbearable hot flashes and what she describes as an endless feeling of boredom. That's literal, OK, like mental illness level. Cole continues to experience joint pain from weakened bone density, a known side effect of puberty blockers, as well as certain allergies and ongoing urinary tract infection symptoms. But all of this pales in comparison to the double mastectomy Cole underwent at age 15, which permanently removed both of her breasts. Cole added that the surgeons also surgically removed her nipples and grafted them back in in a more masculine position, creating serious side effects that she will deal with for the rest of her life.
This is absolute butchery, satanic butchery, virtue signaling by cutting apart children and filling them with drugs in order to virtue signal for the forces of Satan. We'll be right back. OK, welcome back. Merry Christmas to you.
This is Steve Noble on The Steve Noble Show. By the way, a great way to celebrate the Merry Christmas time of year is the Keith and Kristen Getty concert next Tuesday here in the Raleigh area. Sing an Irish Christmas Tuesday, December 20th at the Shepherd's Church down in Cary, an incredible campus, great church.
I teach down there myself. I've got two VIP tickets. These are worth $250 apiece. Great seating down in the first few rows. You're part of the VIP meet and greet with Keith and Kristen Getty for the Sing an Irish Christmas concert. That'll be next Tuesday night here in the Raleigh area. These two tickets are worth $250 apiece.
I have one pair to bless you with. So first caller, please make sure you actually can go. First caller 866-348-7884 will get the tickets. We just need your name and your email address. Hopefully the folks are listening that are answering the phone.
Sorry about that. Two tickets. They're worth $250 apiece for the Keith and Kristen Getty Sing an Irish Christmas concert next Tuesday here in the Raleigh area. December 20th VIP meet and greet 5 to 6 p.m. and the concert starts at 7. My wife and I will be there.
It'll be incredible. You don't want to miss it. So we'll make sure some folks are calling in.
So if you're not the first one through, I apologize. And I'm trying to make sure they're paying attention to that. Hopefully they are.
I just kind of spring that on them. So I got to make sure they get that. Can you text? Do you have his text? Yeah. Somebody is. Yeah, I'm texting them. Just make sure. First caller gets it. So it looks like they've got somebody online. We'll see.
Need name and email. I'm not some like big shot John Hannity or whatever. This is on the level, man. So when we're working through something here in the studio, generally you're going to know it. I'm just going to tell you. So there you go. That's cool.
That's going to be awesome. All right. Back to the story about Chloe Cole.
And I want to talk about this retired Navy SEAL. I'm going to get through this real quick. So they were just so horrible. Started at 11. Her parents didn't know what to do.
She goes online, which is where you're going to find a very welcoming community, the trans community. And they're going to be pushing these little kids. These kids are all confused.
They don't know what they're like. Teenagers, right? 11 through 18. 11 through 16.
They're all messed up anyway. And so what Cole most regrets is how the beauty of motherhood was stripped from her in an age when she wasn't able to fully comprehend the loss. At 15, I wasn't really thinking.
I was a kid just trying to fit in, not thinking about the possibility of becoming a parent. Cole told the Catholic news agency she went through a long period of grief as she came to regret the mastectomy and detransition in 2021. A realization that catalyzed after she took a psychology class studying the attachment between mothers and infants. Heartbreaking, isn't it? So she's out there traveling the country now speaking the truth that transitioning, gender transition, is not the answer.
It's butchery and it's evil. Folks struggling with gender dysphoria, the ones that actually have that, need a lot of therapy and counseling. They don't need a surgery. They don't need a bunch of drugs shot into their bodies either. They need time and love and compassion and they need counseling and help, not a scalpel. But it's becoming a big business. So there's plenty of people out there, counselors and doctors, that don't mind turning kids into lab rats. And plenty of parents out there that are willing to virtue signal by throwing their kids to the dogs, literally.
It's disgusting. Man. So then there's the retired Navy SEAL, famous after coming out as trans.
See, this is a movement that's growing, which is great. All right, here's the deal. I destroyed my life. I'm not a victim. I did this to myself, but I had help. A retired Navy SEAL who became famous nearly 10 years ago after coming out as a transgender announced he is detransitioned and called on Americans to wake up about how transgender health services are hurting children.
Quote, everything you see on CNN with my face, do not even believe a word of it, Chris Beck, formerly known as Kristen Beck, told conservative influencer Robbie Starbuck in an interview. Everything that happened to me for the last 10 years destroyed my life. I destroyed my life. I'm not a victim. I did this to myself, but I had help. Of course, this was an adult, OK?
Not a child. I take full responsibility, he continued. I went on CNN and everything else, and that's why I'm here right now. I'm trying to correct that.
Beck gained notoriety in 2013 when he spoke with CNN's Anderson Cooper about transitioning to a woman. Quote, I was used. I was very naive. I was in a really bad way, and I got taken advantage of. I got propagandized.
I got used badly by a lot of people who had knowledge way beyond me. They knew what they were doing. I didn't, he said in the interview. Beck served in the Navy for 20 years, including on SEAL Team 6.
He was deployed 13 times and received more than 50 medals and ribbons for his service. Beck said he's speaking out about transgenderism to protect children. In the current political climate, that there are gender clinics all over America.
There are thousands of these clinics, he said, being put up all over the country. As soon as kids go in and say, I'm a tomboy, or this makes me feel comfortable. And then the psychologist says, oh, you're a transgender. And then the next day you're on hormones, the same hormones they're using for medical castration for pedophiles in other countries. Now they are giving this to healthy 13 year olds.
Does this seem right, he asked. This is why I'm trying to tell Americans to wake up. No kidding. So if you, there's a good chance your children or grandchildren know somebody in the transgender arena. Somebody that's struggling with it, claims it. There is gender dysphoria. OK, there is gender dysphoria that needs treatment, but there's also a social contagion, confuse kids. It's like a virtue signal. Hey, I'm so open minded that I'm not even committed to my gender.
I change it depending on what's going on in my life. That's all social contagion, demonic lies that's being spread and propagandized by most, if not all of the left. Progressives, liberals, academia, right down to kindergarten teachers, which is why you need to pay attention to libs of TikTok.
Libs of TikTok. And there's tons of money. Planned Parenthood is getting into this.
Which I shouldn't have to tell you anything else. Planned Parenthood, if there's blood in the water, they're in. There's plenty of blood in the water.
Sick. And then and then you've got the Biden administration. Pray for these reprobates. I mean, when I say that, I'm not just being like this condescending jerk right winger. I'm referencing Romans one. This is a reprobate mind.
That's what's going on here. The Biden administration, this was out of Reuters, cannot force a group of Catholic health care providers and professionals to perform gender transition surgeries. I mean, they wanted to do that. Yes, they did.
If you voted for him, shame on you. Transition surgeries under an Obama era regulation barring sex discrimination in health care, a U.S. appeals court ruled on Friday. A unanimous three judge panel of the eighth U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with the North Dakota federal judge who said the U.S. Health and Human Services rule infringes on the religious freedoms of the plaintiffs. Oh, wait a second. HHS. Who's in there? Oh, that's right.
The transgender person, Rachel Levine. This is all part of their deal. It's like this demonic takeover of the American culture. That's what's happening here, including a group of nuns who run health clinics for the poor and an association of Catholic health care professionals. The New Orleans based Fifth Circuit came to the same conclusion in August in a case brought by Christian medical groups. Luke Goodrich of the conservative Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, who represents the plaintiffs, said the ruling will protect patients and ensure doctors can follow their oath to do no harm.
Quote, The federal government has no business forcing doctors to violate their consciences or perform controversial procedures that could permanently harm their patients, he said in a statement. The federal Affordable Care Act, thank you, Obama, prohibits sex discrimination by health care providers who receive federal funding. And the HHS rule interpreted that ban as extending to do discrimination based on gender identity. So we say sex to all us old people and you think male and female, but the new world, the woke world, they throw gender identity in there. So you can't discriminate based on sex to them.
That's gender identity. U.S. District Judge Peter Welt in Fargo, North Dakota, ruled in favor of the plaintiffs last year. Welt said applying the rule to providers with religious objections to performing gender transition surgeries would violate the Federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
We've got to get rid of that, obviously. That law prohibits the government from burdening an individual's exercise of religion. The Eighth Circuit on Friday agreed. The court said the intrusion on the plaintiffs rights under the referral was enough to establish the irreparable harm necessary to block HHS from enforcing the rules against the plaintiffs. The main thing here is that the federal government, under its current leadership with a bunch of spineless Republicans up there, too. We'll see what they do when they get control of the House on January 3rd. They should be investigating this stuff, too.
But they're up there and you've got a federal government analysis. I do not care what your personal opinion is on transitioning children or anybody else for that matter, but especially children. And we're going to force you to do it. I don't care what your religious beliefs are. Your religious beliefs are what's ruining this country. You backwards people. You anti-progressive people. You don't want to see our culture progress into the great future.
You want to see it regress back to Jim Crow laws and when women couldn't vote and interracial marriages were illegal. That's what you want, you crazy white racist Christians. I'm just telling you how they think. And they think that way because it's demonic. And the devil and his demons want to shut down Christianity in every turn they can.
And they're using every vehicle that they can use. You're either a child of God or you're a child of the devil. If you're not a born again Christian, you are a child of the devil.
You're walking with him by choice. You may not be super understanding of that, but you've chosen to reject the God that you know exists. Romans Chapter one. And then eventually what we see right now, God gives you and your whole culture over to a reprobate mind.
And so you start removing the breast of 13 year olds for your woke ideology. We all need to pray for this nation. We'll be right back. Welcome back at Steve Noble, The Steve Noble Show.
Merry Christmas to you and yours. Going to turn a little bit of a corner here and talk to our good friend David Fisher with a Money Monday update, which we do every Monday. Sometimes the schedule doesn't allow for that, but that's what we try to do.
We've been doing that together for years and sometimes people like, hey, Steve, why do you do that such a regular basis? We do it on a regular basis because the Bible does it on a regular basis. The Bible has more scripture in both the Old and the New Testament about money and possessions than it does on faith and even prayer. Individual specific scripture. There's more about money and possessions than there is on those other two topics. And those other two topics are huge, obviously.
So God knew that we would struggle with this particular issue, whether you have a little or medium or a lot. And so what the Bible talks about consistently, I just think we should probably do that here on the air as well to be consistent with the thing that we say we believe. And that's why we take the opportunity to talk to our good friend David Fisher each week on Mondays. David, how are you, man? Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas to you, my brother.
I'm doing great. Thanks for having me on your program. You're very welcome.
As always, my pleasure. And we always start these little Money Monday updates of the passage of scripture and true to the season, Luke chapter two. We'll start there. So this is the background of the story of Joseph and Mary finding a place where baby Jesus can be born. And it says this while there while they were there, the time came for the baby to be born. And she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in clothes, placed him in a manger because there was no room available for them.
No guest room available for them, excuse me. So let's think about that for a second. The God who created the world, the heavens and the earth, Adam and Eve, and who in his image now sends his only son to the earth, humbles himself as a man, not born in a lavish hotel where everything was adorned with him, but in a barn, smelly barn, it was probably very inconvenient at the time. And so it reminds me of sometimes, you know, babies can be inconvenient, they can be costly, they interrupt plans, but also they're a huge blessing.
And we can't imagine being without them. And it's the same thing for a walk with the Lord. God will call us to do things that sometimes are costly, like giving our whole life to him. And things as believers, still he calls us to take up our cross daily. He has a way of interrupting our plans, not what we have planned, but his plan. And then we find out that his plans are better than ours, therefore a welfare, a future, and a hope. But we just can't even imagine, you know, those that have walked with the Lord for years, how we would ever do it any other way.
So I want to challenge those that are hearing my voice and your voice today, Steve. Expect the Lord to cause interruptions in our life. That's part of the Christian walk. It can be costly, it can be not something we ask for, but it's always going to be a blessing and it causes us to become closer to him.
That's right, eventually. And that's why faith is so important. You just have to trust the Lord that we can't see over the next hill. He sees over and around, underneath and above, every single hill that's ever existed. And we have to remember, that's why when it comes to God's providence, David, I'm always encouraging people, myself included, make sure that you study God's character a whole lot.
And then once you really have a good handle on his character, you'll be a whole lot less worried about his providence. And so that's a great reminder. Out of Luke 2, two reports last week, we had two reports come out, not great news.
So tell us about that. That was the jobless claims and the PPI report. So the jobless claims rose to $230,000 last week.
It comes out every week. The week prior it was $226,000. So more people filing for unemployment is what it tells us. A total of 1.67 million Americans have filed for jobless claims on a continuing basis since this year, which is the most this report since February of this year. This is the largest rise in continuing claims.
It peaked in June of 2020 at 1.7 million. So we're really close to the COVID era, if you will. This is 10 weeks straight that has increased, continuing rising in the claims. So it tells us that it's signaling weakness in the American job report, which is what the Fed wants. It's not good for us, but this is good news for the Fed.
I guess their thing is working. The other one was the producer price index, which tells us what's happening on a production level for cost. It was supposed to come in at 7.2%, which is still higher than it was a year ago. It came in at 7.4%, hotter than what they expected. If you extract takeout food and energy, it's still up 6.2%.
They thought it was going to come at 5.9%. So in other words, there's about 38% surge in the vegetable market wholesale. Energy costs declined, so that was a wash. Bottom line is we still have inflation, not as hot as we thought it was, but it's still there, and it's not coming down as fast as what the Fed wants.
Yeah, so that's the PPI, which is the producer's basic price index. That's their measure of inflation, but this week we've got the CPI, the consumer price index, as well as the Federal Reserve is going to be active again this week, so help us understand what's coming. So the CPI is going to be tomorrow.
It's probably the biggest report, and then Wednesday the Federal Reserve is going to come out and say, hey, rates are going to go up two and probably a half of a point. They're probably not going to do a three-quarters of a point. There's a 97% chance it's going to be a half of a point.
Seven percent is going to be three-quarters of a point. But the CPI is print. It's anticipated. It's not going to spike. They don't think it's going to be as high as it was last month. But if we get surprised, we might be surprised what the Fed says. I think Jerome Powell will say, though, he's going to push back on this idea of pivoting.
He's going to say that again. He's going to say inflation is still too high, and it's lasting longer than what we thought. So he's going to reaffirm that they're not going to pivot for a while, and that's what everybody completely looks like they're saying. Yeah, so that's what Jerome Powell is saying, but what are major CEOs saying about what's coming next year? Well, Janet Yellen, she's not a CEO, but she's saying that there's probably not going to be a recession. Of course, she was completely wrong about inflation. She said a year ago there was no inflation. There won't be.
So she won't have a good track record. But Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, J.P. Morgan, they're painting a very grim picture for the U.S. economy and the market in 2023. J.P. Morgan says there's going to be a recession case and expect millions of jobs lost all the way into mid-2024, and BlackRock says we're going to have the worst recession in history. This is going to be a global recession. They're saying it's around the corner. They're saying it is imminent, they use that word, and they're saying that this is not going to be like anything in the past. What worked in the past where the Fed comes to the rescue and also buying the dip, that's not going to work this time.
The Fed is not coming to the rescue. They made that really clear. And Graham Summers, I've reported on him before, he is saying that the market is going to go down another 30 to 50%. We were supposed to go up here last week through what you call a moving day average, the 200-day, which is the resistance. It touched it.
It couldn't go through it. I don't want to get all technical and too far in the woods here. It's just saying that we don't have enough volume of buying to get this thing into a bull market. It's going to retrace, go back in a bear market, and he says it's going to go down for months, if not possibly a couple years. Yeah, you've got to be silver-minded about all this. So on the opposite end of all that kind of stuff, what's gold and silver doing in response to all this?
It's been such an interesting year on that front. So gold and silver is down about 0.5% by index paper, but physical market up 10% to 12%, the least performing of them. Big news, Deutsche Bank, who is anti-gold, they bet against gold, they did illegal things against gold, and they paid in 2012 and in 2016, they paid a $60 million fine for doing that. They paid another $38 million. JP Morgan last year paid $920 million in fine for manipulating gold and silver down. Now they're both on the other side of this.
They're not doing that anymore. And Deutsche Bank is now joining back at the London Bullion Market Association. So in other words, if you can't fight them, cause gold to go down, join them. Gold's going up, let's be a part of it. They have a lot of clients that they want to sell gold to.
They've met this in this report, and so they've got to be a part of this. So they're going to join in instead of fight the gold market, same with JP Morgan. So I think we're going to see higher prices in gold, and they cite the central banks buying gold aggressively. And if you think gold is a buy, silver outperformed gold last markets. So call my company, learn about gold, learn about silver, get that white paper on the coming bail-in, learn about that. That's a new paper. But diversify, don't have all your eggs in one basket. Yeah, definitely. You don't want, we've talked about this so many times with the sailboat analogy.
You've got a big sail up there catching all the prevailing winds, but what's underneath your boat to balance that out? That's why we talk about diversification so often. So people, I know you have the new white paper on the coming bail-in, which people have to understand that's becoming bigger on the radar screen all the time, what the federal government can do. But how do they get that information or begin the process, David? Just to get informed, just to get educated.
Yeah, there's no commitment or challenge that you have to do something. Just call and learn, 844-604-2575. The number again, 844-604-2575.
Or go to our website, landmarkgold.com. Awesome. Got it, buddy. Thank you so much. As always, we look forward to talking to you next Monday with another update. And again, Merry Christmas to you and your family. Merry Christmas to you, my brother.
Thanks, pal. We'll talk real soon. That's David Fisher with Landmark Capital, landmarkgold.com. It was interesting on the financial side. Our state treasurer here in North Carolina the other day, Dale Falwell, said the CEO of BlackRock should step down.
It's one of the biggest hedge funds in the world because they're spending so much time investing in things based on being woke, which isn't necessarily great for an investor. Pretty amazing. This is Steve Noble on The Steve Noble Show. God willing, I'll talk to you again real soon. And like my dad always used to say, ever forward.
