A Metaphor For America: 700 Pound Man Plans To Eat And Play Video Games While Naked Until He Dies
34-year-old Casey King is so obese that he can’t work, he has to bathe outside in a trough like a pig, and he has to rely on his father to constantly take care of him. He now weighs more than 700 pounds, but he just keeps on eating massive amounts of unhealthy food. Just like America as a whole, he has absolutely no self-discipline and absolutely no desire to turn his life around. On some level he understands that

Ron Paul: ‘When Our Financial System Crashes…The Elites…Will Suffer The Least’
When the housing bubble popped in 2007, the Federal Reserve went to work to re-inflate the bubble by printing more money – quantitative easing. But the policy has made matters much worse, as now everything is a bubble, and according to Ron Paul, when it bursts, only the elite will come out unscathed. The Federal Reserve has once again created an artificial and unsustainable economic bubble. Central planning still doesn’t work, and the sooner we move to sound money the better. Ron Paul discusses

America's Forgotten War Against the Central Banks
"Let me issue and control a nation's money supply, and I care not who makes its laws." (Mayer Amschel Rothschild, Founder of Rothschild Banking Dynasty) Many prominent Americans such as Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Andrew Jackson have argued and fought against the central banking polices used throughout Europe. A note issued by a central bank, such as the Federal Reserve Note, is bank currency. These notes are given to the government in exchange for an interest-bearing g

America Is Committing Suicide: Over The Past 12 Months, The U.S. National Debt Has Increased By 1.271 Trillion Dollars
This report was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse If we do not change course, our once great nation will be destroyed by a debt that has grown wildly out of control. We are facing an unprecedented debt crisis that literally threatens to bring our country to an end, and yet our politicians are almost entirely silent on this issue in 2018. In fact, Republicans and Democrats just worked together to pass another big, fat spending bill through Congress that is actually

  Just Remember… They’ve been telling your Gold is a barbaric relic for decades now ! 
Whatever you do, gold and silver investors, don't ever forget how they claimed gold and silver were mere trinkets, not worthy of consideration as backing for money. Keep this one point firmly etched front and center for all to see. Never let it go out of sight for even one moment. For if the politicians, the bankers, the Treasury officials, various spokesmen for the Fed, or the money powers ever go back on that claim, you will have all the proof you will ever need that their claim was nothing but a longstanding hoax perpetrated to rob blind the uninformed and unconcerned "sheople". Let's just make sure they stay with that viewpoint and take it to their grave. If not they will clearly be coming after your gold and silver in an attempt to make it theirs. They may even be so bold to use the well worn line, "I am from the government and I am here to help you."

Who Bought the $1.47 Trillion of New US National Debt over the Past 12 Months
China, Japan, other foreign investors, the Fed, US government funds? Nope. Foreign private-sector investors and “foreign official” investors – central banks, governments, etc. – whittled down their holdings of US Treasury Securities by $21 billion at the end of  July, compared to a year ago, to $6.25 trillion, according to the Treasury Department’s TIC data released Tuesday afternoon. Over the same period, the US gross national debt – fueled by a stupendous spending binge and big-fat tax cuts –

Hyperinflation - USA Gold
  The Nightmare German Inflation 
Hey, Mr. Chairman, in case you haven't noticed, the Federal Reserve already has a goodly supply of oxen! My father was fond of relating a story about a professor lecturing on geography. A short fellow, he was extolling the agriculture of Switzerland. "In our country oxen are not even as tall as I am. In some countries you see oxen just as tall as myself. But, believe it or not, on the fat pastures of Switzerland there are even greater oxen than myself". For emphasis the good professor stood on his tiptoes and stretched his hand upwards above his head. "We don't believe so!" - shouted someone from the back benches of the lecture theater.

America's Forgotten War Against the Central Banks
In order to pay debts incurred from the Seven Years War with France, King George III of England sought to heavily tax the colonies in America. In 1742, the British Resumption Act required that taxes and other debts be paid in gold.

Death Valley Snowballs and Fiat Currencies - Gary Christenson
Keep it simple! Snowballs have a short life expectancy in Death Valley. Fiat currencies, backed by credit and debt, survive longer than snowballs in Death Valley, but history shows all fiat currencies are inflated into worthlessness and eventually die. “U.S. dollars have value only to the extent that they are strictly limited in supply.” Ben Bernanke on November 21, 2002. But we know the supply of dollars has grown rapidly since 1971, and especially after the 2008 crisis while Berna

Silver Purchasing Power
This article was written for Miles Franklin by Gary Christenson. We know: a) Federal Reserve and U.S. government policies devalue the dollar—down about 98% since 1913. b) US. government spending is out of control, increases every year, regardless of revenues, and shows no sign of plateauing or declining. c) Few people encourage balanced budgets and LESS spending. All government agencies, lobbyists, congresspersons, military contractors, and many corporations encourage MORE spending, and by neces

Debt and Delusions – Part 2
This article was written for Miles Franklin by Gary Christenson. Part one is available here. The problem with debt is the creditor expects to be repaid. Sovereign debt will be “rolled over,” never extinguished, and repaid with new debt. We delude ourselves and pretend total debt will increase forever (it can’t). That explains global debt exceeding $230 trillion today and official U.S. government debt approaching $21 trillion, with unfunded liabilities adding another $100 – $200 trillion. There a

Gold Does Not Fear Interest Rate Hikes
– Gold no longer fears or pays attention to Fed announcements regarding interest rates – Renewed interest in gold due to inflation fears and concern Fed won’t do enough to control it – Higher interest rates on horizon will make debt levels unsustainable – New Fed Chair warns “the US is not on a sustainable fiscal path” and could lead to an “unsustainable” debt load – Higher interest rates are good for gold as seen in the 1970s and 2000s – Gold markets aware that central banks are running out of

Debt and Delusions – Part One
This article was written for Miles Franklin by Gary Christenson. Quick summary:  U.S. debt, spending and deficits are out of control. Thinking otherwise is delusional. The “runaway train” of debt creation will end tragically. Protect your assets from a mathematically assured disaster while you can. Buy and hold silver, gold and platinum. The national debt of western nations plus Japan is a travesty that threatens national insolvency, a crashing financial system, and social stability! WHY? Gover

Mr. President, If We Don’t Have Gold, We Don’t Have a Country
“Passivity is fatal to us. Our goal is to make the enemy passive. … Communism is not love. Communism is a hammer which we use to crush the enemy.” Mao Tse-tung, proclaiming the founding of the People’s Republic of China, 1949Circumstantial evidence is mounting high that there is something seriously wrong with the amount of gold reportedly owned by the United States government, or more precisely, the American people.After nearly two generations of being brainwashed into believing that gold is a m

Shelter From The Storm
This article was written for Miles Franklin by Gary Christenson. Bob Dylan “Shelter From The Storm” “I bargained for salvation and she gave me a lethal dose.” What Storm? Why do we need shelter? The stock market hit all-time highs in January, corrected, and might rally to new highs… or maybe not… See below. Official unemployment is low if you believe the statistics and ignore the millions excluded from the calculations. Inflation, according to official numbers, is low. New cars may have doubled

OWN GOLD BEFORE PANDORA REOPENS THE BOX
In the old Greek mythology, the opening of Pandora’s box unleashed many evils on the world. Within the next few years, we will see a modern Pandora’s box being opened that will lead to events in the world which will be as devastating as when the ancient box was opened. The very big difference is that this time the consequences will not be part of historical mythology. Instead they will be real and catastrophic for the whole world on a scale never experienced in history. Pandora – the all giving

Silver Price Optimist or Pessimist

Four Percent 10-year Note Yield Will Be a Floor No...
The two most important factors in determining the level of sovereign bond yields are the credit and inflation risks extant within a nation. When determining a country’s ability to service its debt investors must analyze not only the absolute debt level, but also the ratios of debt and deficits to GDP. In addition, the current rate of inflation must also be viewed within the context of debt in order to make an accurate assumption as to the level of future inflation. When analyzing historical meas

China Rating Agency Downgrades U.S. Debt
While U.S. government and Federal Reserve officials continue to pretend as if all is well in the economy, apparently a rather important counter-party doesn’t share the same view. A few weeks ago there was a story about how the Chinese government is considering reducing its allocation of U.S. treasuries. Now, one of the Chinese rating agencies (Dagong Global Credit Rating) has gone ahead and downgraded the U.S. credit rating. Based on the financials, it’s hardly a surprise to see the U.S. get dow
