Gold's 1975 Warning on Bitcoin Futures
If Bitcoin really is like gold, watch out...! NEW YEAR's DAY 1975 marked a huge turn in the gold market, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. Forty years after banning it, the US government at last let private citizens own bullion.  Coin shops and banks knew how big this was. So they raced to stock up as 1974 ended.

Fed Concerned Bitcoin Will “Eviscerate” Big Banks? No, Not Really!
A rumor is circulating that the Fed concerned Bitcoin will “eviscerate” big banks. Let's investigate the claim.Zerohedge writes As Bitcoin Nears $10,000 "Central Banks Kept Up At Night". Here is the line that caught my attention: "St. Louis Fed President James Bullard admitted to Reuters in a recent interview what the real concern was: '(We could) wake up one day and most of the big banks have been eviscerated and most of that activity has moved elsewhere.'" I tracked that that claim back to the

Citing Bank of England records, Zero Hedge reveals tonight that as the London Gold Pool was collapsing in 1968 the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England conspired to conceal from the GermanBundesbank the deficient gold content of U.S. gold bars, apparently made from coin melt, that were being transferred to theBundesbank to conclude gold swaps.

Why I’m Not Buying into the Bitcoin Cash Hype
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) was a fork of Bitcoin blockchain ledger that launched on August 1st and increased the block size to 8MB. The stated goal of this fork is to lower fees and speed up transaction times. At the time of the fork, those holding Bitcoin received an equal number of Bitcoin Cash coins. Bitcoin Cash is in the headlines after the price spiked roughly 6x in a matter of just 4 days. FOMO (fear of missing out) started to kick in and people bid up the price from $400 at the start of November

EVERY WORKING AMERICAN OWES $ 1.5 MILLION
The facts just don’t add up. US wages are falling, trade deficit is at 10 year high, debt is surging so are stocks and the US Government has again managed to publish a number of contradicting employment figures that make no sense whatsoever. A CONFIDENT BUT UNEMPLOYED CONSUMER US Consumer Sentiment US Consumer Sentiment is the highest in 13 years. At the same time US October Household Employment Survey dropped 484,000 and the Labour Force shrank by 765,000. But due to manipulation of the figure

Heat Death of the Economic Universe
Physicists say that the universe is expanding. However, they hotly debate (OK, pun intended as a foreshadowing device) if the rate of expansion is sufficient to overcome gravity—called escape velocity. It may seem like an arcane topic, but the consequences are dire either way. If the rate of expansion is too low, then it will get slower and slower until expansion stops entirely, then finally, begin collapsing again in a Big Crunch. That’s bad enough. But the other possible fate of the universe i

  Get Ready To Party Like It’s 2008 - Dave Kranzler
Apparently Treasury Secretary, ex-Goldman Sachs banker Steven Mnuchin, has threatened Congress with stock crash if Congress doesn’t pass a tax reform Bill. His reason is that the stock market surge since the election was based on the hopes of a big tax cut. This reminds me of 2008, when then-Treasury Secretary, ex-Goldman Sachs CEO, Henry Paulson, and Fed Chairman, Ben Bernanke, paraded in front of Congress and threatened a complete systemic collapse if Congress didn’t authorize an $800

Don’t hold your gold in a Swiss Bank
Don’t hold gold in a Swiss Bank or in any bank in any country. We regularly see examples both in medium sized and big Swiss banks that should make bank clients very concerned. Here are some examples: A client stores physical gold in a bank but when he wants us to organise a transfer to private vaults, the gold doesn’t exist and the bank must acquire it. 400 oz gold bars that were bought by the bank for the client in 2005, were cast in 2011, so the gold never existed. A client stores gold in a b

The Monotonous Madness of Managed Markets
So there you have it. A clear breakout to all-time highs confirmed by every measure everywhere with momentum charging ahead and high-fives and champagne corks flying about with reckless abandon and serial glee. To quote Chuck Prince, who left Citigroup in 2007 with an exit bonus of around $12.5 million, $68 million in stock and options, $1.7 million pension, an office, a car and a driver for five years during which time Citigroup shed $64 BILLION in valuation, "As long as the music is playing, y

Newton's Third Law
In late August, we decided to anchor our boat out in a place called Indian Harbour, a wonderful "safe haven" for boaters that love northern Georgian Bay, in an effort to make the most of what has been an absolutely dreadful summer for most people in the east-central part of Canada and the U.S. This little harbour is protected by a small sliver of rock and trees that separates it from the ravages of the prevailing westerlies which whip across the prairies gathering momentum until they descent upo

America’s Hamiltonian Empire of Lies 
In his essay, “Anatomy of the State,” Murray Rothbard wrote of how states preserve their power with a number of tools, most notably an alliance with “intellectuals.”  In return for power, positions, and pelf, the “intellectuals” work diligently to persuade “the majority” that “their government is good, wise and, at least, inevitable.”  This is the “the vital stock task of the intellecuals.”  The “molding of opinion” is what “the State most desperately needs” if it is to maintain is powers, wrote

PHYSICAL GOLD – THE ONLY PENSION FUND TO SURVIVE
There are probabilities in markets and there are certainties. It is very probable that investors will lose a major part of their assets held in stocks, bonds and property over the next 5-7 years. It is also probable that they will lose most of their money held in banks, either by bank failure or currency debasement. Who buys a bond that will go to Zero? What is not probable, but absolutely certain, is that investors who buy the new Austrian 100-year bond yielding 2.1% are going to lose all their

  The full guide to Nazi gold and currency war 
This morning’s papers and news-shows are full of the story that in 1939 the Bank of England facilitated the sale of Nazi looted gold, not just once but at least twice during that year. Both times without approval of the British government, despite an attempt to freeze Czech assets. The story of Nazi gold is both fascinating and tragic. We take a look at ‘the greatest robbery of all time’ and draw parallels with the modern day gold migration. What is Nazi gold? Nazi gold is a phrase that refers t

Why Bitcoin Will Make Gold And Silver Go Up, PT ll
Ho hum.  Another first Friday of the month, and another fabricated “jobs” report with not a shred of correlation to real economic activity.  Like, for instance, the completely ignored fact that – as I have discussed ad nauseum – the BLS’ “birth-death model”; which as we recently learned, accounts for 93% of all new “jobs” since the 2008 crisis; is based on the creation of unreported jobs at small businesses.  This, despite the “inconvenient truth” that more small businesses have “died” since 200

The West lost at least another 1000 tonnes of large gold bars in 2015
Over the last number of years, one of the most interesting trends in the physical gold world is the ongoing conversion of large 400 ounce gold bars into smaller high purity 1 kilogram gold bars to meet the insatiable demand of Asian gold markets such as China and India. This transformation of 400 ounce bars into 1 kilogram bars is an established fact and is irrefutable given the large amount of evidence which proves it is happening, as has been documented on the BullionStar website and elsewhere

  The Crash of the Bank of the United States 
By the fourth quarter of 1930 the trouble with the Bank of United States gave occasion to grave concern. The Bank of United States was a bank which ought never to have existed, and which certainly ought never to have had the name it had. One leading banker of New York went personally to Albany to protest against the giving of such a name to that bank or to any other bank, and was told that there was a political debt to pay.
