Special Supplement: Counterfeit Coins? You Get What You Pay For
Miles Franklin has been in business for 27 years – with an A+ Better Business Bureau rating, and not a single registered complaint since opened our doors in 1989.  The company is still owned by the father and son team that founded it, Andy and David Schectman; and our brokers, on average, have been selling bullion since the early 1980s.  For a variety of reasons – from our sterling reputation; to competitive sale prices; the industry’s best “buyback” prices (particularly for Miles Franklin custo

The Traitors Abetting The Deep State's Dirty, Dying War on Gold - Stewart Dougherty
Evidence is mounting that the Deep State (DS) is starting to lose the dirtiest financial war in history: their War on Gold. More deeply, it is a war against something the Deep State profoundly loathes: personal financial liberty. The War on Gold, which has raged for 37+ years, has generated more than $1 trillion in criminal profits for the Deep State plunderers, while costing the worldwide owners of physical gold multiple trillions of dollars. All of this is coming to an end. Due to its criminal

What Is A “Legal Tender Law”? And, Is It A Problem?
What is a legal tender law? Over the years, there has been some discussion about “legal tender laws” in the United States. I talked to a legal expert about it, and discovered – as I suspected – that it doesn’t mean quite the same thing as many people think it does. Here is my (non-expert) explanation. The present legal

The first two parts of this series presented the economic tidal wave that is approaching us and explained how and why we have never been less prepared economically or socially for such a cataclysm. Part III detailed how the economic destruction being wrought upon is deliberate – perpetrated by the banking crime syndicate and condoned by our puppet governments. The third installment also explained how our governments are preparing for what lies ahead. These corrupt regimes (led by the Unit

Republicans, Democrats, and Voodoo Economics - Jeff Nielson
The Republican Trump regime has come out with its first economic policy paper. Democrat Larry Summers call this “voodoo economics” . This is very funny on multiple levels. Many would argue that it was the Clinton regime (with Larry Summers in charge of economic policy) which began the transformation of the U.S. economy from what was still a relatively strong and prosperous entity into the hopelessly crippled, financial Ponzi-scheme which it has become today. It was during the Clinton year

Merkel’s Human Rights Speaker Resigns Over Refugee Policy
Merkel’s human rights speaker, Erika Steinbach, resigned over the chancellor’s immigration policy. She also left the CDU party. Erika Steinbach, who’s been with Chancellor Merkel’s CDU for 43 years, has strongly criticized the leader’s handling of the migrant crisis. She claims conservatives have been sidelined in Germany’s main ruling party. “Would I vote CDU at the moment? No. Would I join the CDU today? No. I can only draw the honest conclusion of leaving the CDU,” she told “Welt Am Sonntag

Why Fractional-Reserve Banking Would Be Limited in an Unhampered Market
The so-called multiplier arises as a result of the fact that banks are legally permitted to use money that is placed in demand deposits. Banks treat this type of money as if it was loaned to them, thus loaning it out while simultaneously allowing depositors to spend that money.RELATED: "Austrians, Fractional Reserves, and the Money Multiplier" by Robert BatemarcoFor example, if John places $100 in demand deposit at Bank One he doesn't relinquish his claim over the deposited $100. He has unlimite

Money Creation and the Boom-Bust Cycle
In his various writings, Murray Rothbard argued that in a free market economy that operates on a gold standard the creation of credit that is not fully backed up by gold (fractional-reserve banking) sets in motion the menace of the boom-bust cycle. In his The Case for 100 Percent Gold Dollar Rothbard wrote,I therefore advocate as the soundest monetary system and the only one fully compatible with the free market and with the absence of force or fraud from any source a 100 percent gold standard.

High-quality counterfeit gold bars sold in Winnipeg and other Canadian cities If you're planning on buying gold bars anytime soon, Winnipeg police are advising extra caution after a series of "suspicious transactions" at locations in the city.

George F. Smith - Barbarous Relic
Revenge of the barbarous relic
A former Fed chairman addresses the country on national TV (fiction): “There should be a sign on the front of the Fed building in Washington saying, ‘We work for the elites – the commercial bankers and government – at the expense of everyone else. Try and stop us.’  “Let’s try, shall we?  “Bankers and politicians have had a mutually rewarding relationship for ages. Bankers create money and loan it out at interest, which can be very profitable. Trouble is, creating money electronically or

Global Supply Chain: 'Don't ask 'what is being counterfeited
The extended period of what can only be termed as Monetary Malpractice, has resulted in global over-supply and an unprecedented production glut, rather than the increased demand sought for economic stimulus by policy planners. What comes with a supply glut is a lack of pricing power, extreme competition and unfortunately the human trait to "cheat" when under mounting pressure. In our just concluded research on the the seriousness of the rate of product quality deterioration in the glo

Precious Metals Hammered, Illusions Shattered - Jeff Nielson
Gold at a 3 ½ month low. Gold and silver step over a cliff. One can almost see the smirks, and hear the chuckles of glee, as the mainstream flock crows their news. What is missing from all the gold (and silver) bashing is one, small detail: a reason. Yes, sift through the Corporate media muck, and one will see explanations: “a stronger dollar” or “fears of a Fed rate increase”. Infantile nonsense. A stronger dollar? Gold was down over 3%. Silver was down over 5%. The dollar gained no mor

Deflation has a bad name among today’s economists, and this should be your first clue that it might be something good.These educated Keynesians, as we’ve seen, can’t see a bubble until it explodes in their faces, at which time their zombie economy starts to wobble and nightmare possibilities abound, the worst being “it” might happen, as it did in the 1930s.They immediately turn to god (the FED chair) and pray that he or she will do what is right.As we know, Ben Bernanke built his reputation maki
