How California stayed with gold when the rest of the U.S. adopted fiat money

Democratization of Money vs. Economic Feudalism
The Fed is the Market, Until Someone Bigger Comes Along..  UPDATE:This editorial was written  3 days ago in reaction to reading the Zerohedge post As Bitcoin Nears $10,000 "Central Banks Kept Up At Night" by Vince Lanci “Free markets for free men”- patch worn on the Nymex floor during Iraqi war.  The reality: We were cheerleaders for Halliburton and naively thought we were on the same team.

Should we Restore the Gold Standard
This blog post is a guest post on BullionStar's Blog by the renowned blogger JP Koning who will be writing about monetary economics, central banking and gold.

Earth Overshoot: How Sustainable is Population Growth
For decades people have been predicting overpopulation would wipe out energy resources if not the entire planet. Every year the population bomb and peak oil crowd have been proven wrong.

Preparing for the Reign of the First Widow 
We believe the 6 April 2017 Tomahawk missile attack on Syria indicates that Donald Trump has concluded that the fiscal, economic and political situations in the United States are beyond repair, and that without continued, massive military interventionism and spending, U.S. GDP will plunge, taking all of his campaign commitments down with it. Therefore, he has capitulated to the agenda of the Deep St

Is the system rigged? If so, is this the end of volatility? Axel Merk explores those questions in this guest post. Fake Risk, Fake Return? With seemingly everyone from the blogosphere to the Tweeter-in-chief chiming in on fake news, have investors considered their risk/return profile may also be “fake”? When it comes to investing, who or what can we trust, is the market rigged, and why does it matter? For eight years in a row now, an investment in the S&P 500 has yielded positive returns [2015

Germany’s Gold remains a Mystery as Mainstream Media cheer leads
On 9 February 2017, the Deutsche Bundesbank issued an update on its extremely long-drawn-out gold repatriation program, an update in which it claimed to have transferred 111 tonnes of gold from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to Germany during 2016, while also transferring an additional 105 tonnes of gold from the Banque de France in Paris to Germany during the same time-period. Following these assumed gold bar movements, the Bundesbank now claims to have achieved its early 2013 goal of rep

The Deep State’s Gold Scam And The Demonization Of Russia - Dave Kranzler/Stewart Dougherty 
Guest post from Stewart Dougherty: As the Fiscal Year 2018 budget, and particularly its war component are floated, it has become clear that without continued, massive military spending, paid for with mass-produced electrons masquerading as money, U. S. GDP would collapse, taking the country’s financial and monetary systems with it. The nation, whose real economy has been hollowed out, for profit, by the Deep State plunderers, has become significantly reliant upon deliberately contrived war

European Central Bank gold reserves held across 5 locations. ECB will not disclose Gold Bar List.
The European Central Bank (ECB), creator of the Euro, currently claims to hold 504.8 tonnes of gold reserves.
