Rats, Public Defecation And Open Drug Use: Our Major Western Cities Are Becoming Uninhabitable Hellholes
 Almost everyone that goes out to visit one of our major cities on the west coast has a similar reaction. Those that must live among the escalating decay are often numb to it, but most of those that are just in town for a visit are absolutely shocked by all of the trash, human defecation, crime and public drug use that they encounter. Once upon a time, our beautiful western cities were the envy of the rest of th

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

  San Francisco Forces Large Corporations to Pay "Homeless Tax"

Gold Protects As Cashless Society Threatens Vulnerable
– Swedish authorities concerned cashless society is happening ‘too quickly’ and heading into ‘negative spiral’– Only 25% of Swedes paid in cash at least once a week in 2017, 36% never use cash– Cash usage in Sweden falling both as share of GDP and in nominal terms– Sweden may be world’s first economy to introduce a cryptocurrency, the e-krona– Cashless is not a disincentive for illegal drug trade, Guardian finds– Gold in safe jurisdictions will protect against raids on cash and wealth The total

Another Quandary 
That crusty ole rascal, Gov. Jerry Brown of California, seems to be enjoying his sunset journey into Civil War Two or maybe the destination is more like Blade Runner (since we know that history only rhymes but does not repeat). Anyway, it’s not a good place. The once-golden state begins to look something like what one federal official recently called — dare I say it? — a shithole. A mix of used hypodermic needles, human feces, and other trash litters the streets and sidewalks in a large section

  Who Moved My Xanax 
The moral panic of “the Resistance” is back in DefCon 1 mode overnight just as the righteousness orgasm of the Golden Globe Awards was wearing off. Mr. Trump’s casual question to a couple of Senators vis-à-vis immigration policy — “Why do we want all these people from ‘shithole countries’ coming here?” — pushed the “racism” button at Resistance Central and CNN staged yet another of the orchestrated anxiety attacks it has perfected over the past year. The spotlight in this three-ring circus of pe

“Christmas is built upon a beautiful and intentional paradox;  that the birth of someone homeless should be celebrated in every home... The place that the shepherds found was not an academy or an abstract republic, it was not a place of myths allegorised or dissected or explained or explained away.  It was a place of dreams, come true.” G.K. Chesterton Who could have seen this coming, indeed. This is likely to be a quiet trading week with an upwards drift. It was 60 degrees here, and I was

Silicone Valley’s ‘Working Homeless’ Shows How Hard Life Is In “Democrat’s Paradise”
Silicone Valley is the home to tech giants like Facebook, Apple, and Google. It’s also home to a surging working homeless population who live in dilapidated RV’s, tents, and their own cars, all thanks to the policies Democrats love to implement. The surging number of those working in Silicone Valley and still unable to afford adequate housing should be a warning about big government, but it sure doesn’t seem like anyone is taking notice as their taxes continue to rise. As governments creep towar

Hurricane Ravaged Dominica: ‘It’s All Gone’ And Fighting For Survival
In just the blink of an eye, island life on Dominica was turned upside down.  Like Puerto Rico, Dominica was violently ravaged by Hurricane Maria, and residents are still fighting for survival. The wooden frames and scattered, water-damaged belongings are all that remains of some homes of on Dominica, which was ravaged by Hurricane Maria last month. Without warning, the storm rapidly accelerated from a Category 3 to a Category 5, and residents said they could do little to prepare. “There was lig

Social destruction by the abuse of money 
In Britain, the top 1% of earners pay over a quarter of all income tax collected, and while super-rich British residents perhaps don’t have the tax breaks the Macklowes enjoy, the bulk of the burden falls on lawyers, bankers, company executives and owners of successful private enterprises. And it should, say the collectivists....One of the juicier stories doing the rounds in New York society is the Macklowe divorce. Harry, the husband, kept a French mistress for two years before seeking a divorc

Poverty, Prosperity, and Precious Metals - Jeff Nielson
In the 20th century; by the end of the 1960’s, Western societies and especially Canada and the United States reached a level of prosperity never seen before – or since. Since the early 1970’s; the standard of living across the Western world has been in a relentless trajectory downward. An article from April 2012 noted that the standard of living in the United States had already fallen by more than 50% since its zenith. Since that time, the standard of living in the U.S. (and across the West) h

The news on Hurricane Irma is grim and worsening. The record-breaking Hurricane is described as “apocalyptic”. Here is a synopsis of Irma’s destruction: island by island. Antigua and Barbuda Barbuda, the first island to feel the force of Hurricane Irma was devastated by its high winds, with Gaston Browne, prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda, saying 90% of buildings had been destroyed and 60% of the population of around 1,400 people left homeless.

Gold Distributes Wealth, Central Bank Fiat Concentrates It
The fruits of increased productivity used to be distributed across society. Everyone benefited as the economy became more productive, new technologies emerged and new industries were born. Prosperity spread across society as jobs were created, poverty was reduced and a robust and thriving middle class emerged in America. Then came the 1970’s and something suddenly changed. Wages decoupled from productivity and workers no longer benefited from improvements in the economy. This trend has continued

Nine!
Wow, I can hardly believe it's been nine years. Where the heck has the time gone, and where the heck is Freegold? ;D A little more than two years ago, I changed format to an NFF (not-for-free) blog in order to keep me enthused and engaged, and more importantly, to keep out the trolls. I wished FOA had done that rather than quitting, so that's how I view it. I have hundreds of subscribers, and when they quit, so will I. The Freegold Speakeasy now has 100 posts and 20,000 comments.

The UN Has Anticipated EU Refugee Crisis For 17 Years: “Only International Migration Could Be Instrumental In Addressing Population Decline”
When thousands of migrants began pouring into EU nations two years ago, it seemed totally unexpected. Though Europe had been open to accepting immigrants from third world countries for several generations, the flood of over 1 million migrants from the Middle East and North Africa was unprecedented. It has also left an indelible mark on the continent that could have serious ramifications, ranging from the full blown displacement of aging Europeans, to the disintegration of the EU. However, the Re

Greatest Stock Bubble Of All Time: “Prices Have Become Completely Disconnected From Economic Reality”
This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog Our Disneyland Economy By Michael Snyder Disneyland is known as a place “where dreams come true” and where every story always has a happy ending.  But there is going to be no happy ending for the U.S. economy.  Wishful thinking has resulted in one of the greatest stock market rallies in history in recent months, but like all childhood fantasies, it won’t last.  The real economy continues to deteriorate, and

  Guess What Happens In States Where Food Stamp Recipients Have To Work
Leftists are constantly reminding of us of the merits of welfare. They tell us that without the help of taxpayer funded handouts, millions of Americans will starve or be left homeless. There’s no doubt that some people really do need help, but this black and white view of welfare doesn’t paint the full picture. Conservatives and libertarians have suspected for decades that many of the people on welfare are actually mooching off of the system. So to reconcile the need to help people who are helpl

Here’s How To “Go Long” Africa
By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at About a month ago, the South African government raised the minimum threshold for black ownership of mining companies from 26% to 30%. It's called "black empowerment" or "affirmative action" and is intended to provide black people with greater access to wealth, education, and to correct the inequality created by the white-led government who relinquished power in 1994 - 23 years ago.

Gold Stock Bull Weekly Review: Yellen Promises No Financial Crash as Dollar Tumbles
Gold, Silver and Currencies Commentary: Argentina has defaulted on its debt many times in the past 70 years. Venezuela’s currency is in freefall.  The unofficial exchange rate (the real rate) is currently about 8,000 bolivars to one US$.  The exchange rate seven years ago was 2 – 4 bolivars to one US$.  Ugly consequences result from bad economic decisions.  The reality per CNN is: “Violent protests are growing, the economy is spiraling further out of control and Venezuelans are suffering through

The Pin To Pop This Mother Of All Bubbles
Global macro economic data has been weak for many years, but there’s now a very real chance of a world-wide recession happening in 2017. Why? A dramatic and worsening shortfall in new credit creation.  The world’s major central banks have, again, done the world an enormous disservice.  Instead of admitting that maybe/perhaps/possibly the practice of issuing debt at more than twice the rate of underlying economic growth was a very bad idea over the past several decades, they instead doubled down
