Actions of A Bully Child or Dying Empire: Sanctions and Threats - Rory Hall
As the Western world continues to slide into the dust bin of history, it is not going without a fight. As with any “wounded animal”, once the reality of pain permeates the body, it typically lashes out at anything or anyone within arms' reach. In the case of the Western world, arms'-reach is merely the push of a button and everything begins to change. What Europe has already come to realize is these meaningless Russian and Iranian sanctions only hurt western manufacturing and have minimal

THE STAGE IS BEING SET FOR A GLOBAL INFLATIONARY EVENT
The U.S. Federal Reserve has aggressively inflated our money supply during the past dozen years. It has performed this act in its effort to stimulate our economy and forestall a potentially damaging period of economic weakness. Prior to this time, and in ever increasing amounts as the years passed, dollar credits have hemorrhaged from our nation. This was largely the resu

UNPREDEDENTED GLOBAL RISK – NO ONE CARES
“Risk involves the chance an investment’s actual return will differ from the expected return. Risk includes the possibility of losing some or all of the original investment.” (Investopedia) So there we have it. Risk means that you can lose part or all of the investment. Normally valuations take risk into account. But is the world really valuing the following risks accurately: A very risky world Wars North Korea – South Korea – USA – Japan – China – Russia incl. nuclear war Ukraine – USA – Russi

Bitcoin Silliness, Myths, and Fatal Flaws
Over the past months or so I accumulated a number of articles regarding Bitcoin ICOs (initial Coin Offerings) myths and hype. Let’s also take a look at what I consider to be fatal flaws, one I have not seen discussed yet in articles, but the idea is easily understood. Myth #1: BitCoin is the Next Gold September 5, Bloomberg: Could Bitcoin be the Next Gold? The idea is preposterous. There is no “next gold”. Gold is gold, nothing else. Myth #2: The Institutional Herd is Coming September 4, Charle

Outlook for the dollar price of gold
Now that gold has become overbought on Comex, the price is vulnerable to being trashed, yet again, by the too-big-to-fail banks. It is a familiar operation in gold futures markets, where speculators buying contracts protect themselves with stop-losses.All the TBTF banks need is a pause in the speculator’s buying and a little good news (bad for gold). Ideally, the active contract will be running into maturity, so the speculators are forced to put up or shut up: in other words, sell the contract,

THE U.S. PETRO DOLLAR BREAKDOWN CONTINUES: Big Moves In Gold And Silver Ahead
By Steve St. AngeloThe four-decade long monopoly of the U.S. Petro-Dollar as the world’s reserve currency is coming to an end.  Unfortunately, most Americans have no clue that when the Dollar loses its reserve currency status, life will get a lot tougher living in the U.S. of A.  Let’s say, Americans will finally receive “Precious metals religion.”The U.S. Dollar Index fell considerably yesterday and is now down below a key support level.  In early morning trading yesterday, the U.S. Dollar Inde

The Government Begins Censorship Of Media Through Disingenuous Means
The death of free speech is imminent.  Anyone with access to a computer and the internet can see that the United States mainstream media is nothing more than a propaganda machine designed to brainwash the masses into a lemming-like agreement with the government. And now, it’s oh-so-ironic that the same government that tells the media what to report on in order brainwash the public is seeking to quiet those who disagree and label them as “propaganda.”  Some may call it fake news, others just want

Alan Reynolds Argues For the Gold Standard, 1982
Here are Allan Meltzer and Alan Reynolds, arguing for Monetarism and the gold standard, in 1982. I think it is an interesting exchange. You could say that things haven’t changed much since then. But, I don’t think that is true. Nobody really takes the Monetarism of that era seriously anymore. The Monetarists themselves had to give up all the fantasies of those days, and are now on what I call third-generation Monetarism, which is Nominal GDP Targeting. There is a lot of talk about “rules-based”

In the Dark 
The stock market is zooming this morning on the news that only 5.7 million people in Florida will have to do without air conditioning, hot showers, and Keurig mochachinos at dawn’s early light Monday, Sept 11, 2017. I’m mindful that the news cycle right after a hurricane goes kind of blank for a day or more as dazed and confused citizens venture out to assess the damage. For now, there is very little hard information on the Web waves. Does Key West still exist? Hard to tell. We’ll know more this

Gold, Blockchain Technology and Belt Road Initiative - Rory Hall
Most people reading this are well aware of the fact that China and Russia have been acquiring gold for the past several years. Russia just added another 12.44 tons, in July 2017, to their continually growing gold hoard. China, on the other hand, has not added a single ounce of gold to their “official” gold hoard since October 2016. China, instead, has been adding gold mines to their increasing resources hoard. Why add a few tons each month to your gold hoard when you can acquire productive

Mutiny “For” The Bounty? 
China recently announced they will trade oil for yuan “backed” by gold. The story has gotten some press (none of it mainstream mind you), and many have questions as to what it really means. While quite complicated as a whole, when you break this down into pieces I believe it is a quite simple and logical end to Bretton Woods. For a background, China has had an exchange open for about a year where gold can be pu

Kalashnikov Unveils New Anti-Drone Weapon
While most western countries are reverting back to medieval technology to combat the use of drones, legendary Russian arms manufacturer Kalashnikov, makers of the AK series, has developed an advanced anti-drone gun. Drones are now becoming more widely available, therefore, anti-drone technology is becoming a major field in the defense industry. Of course, Kalashnikov is leading the pack in anti-drone warfare. Built on the MP-514K rifle system, the fully modular device comes equipped with interch

D.C. Dysfunction and Central Bank Chaos 
On September 5th, the members of both houses of Congress of the United States will clean the beach sand from between their toes and return to work. Our public servants who occupy The House of Representatives have been working on their respective tans since July 29th. The Senate has had a little less time in the sun; they held their final vote on August 3rd despite their pledge to stay until August 11th. Hopefully, they got a lot of rest, because they have a lot to do upon their return. By the en
