  The London Gold Market: What’s behind the smoke and mirrors 
In our last two major research pieces we have been looking at the working parts of the gold market and where the heart of it lies. We’re trying to help investors understand where gold prices are really set. Today we take a look at the London gold market, an older and arguably larger market than COMEX. A couple of weeks ago we explained how we had ‘found that the COMEX was still the beating heart of the gold market.’ Since this research piece, Bron Sucheki, whose work featured in our last piece,

  Cecil Rhodes and the Dream of a New World Order Presided Over by an Anglo-American Establishment 
"The Rhodes Scholarships, established by the terms of Cecil Rhodes's seventh will, are known to everyone. What is not so widely known is that Rhodes in five previous wills left his fortune to form a secret society, which was to devote itself to the preservation and expansion of the British Empire. And what does not seem to be known to anyone is that this secret society was created by Rhodes and his principal trustee, Lord Milner, and continues to exist to this day. To be sure, this secret soci

LBMA Alchemy and the London Gold and Silver Markets: 2 Steps Back
“Did you think that the high-powered world of the LBMA would operate in a fishbowl for all to see? We cannot take what is on the outside as evidence for what is on the inside.” Thoughts of ANOTHER – October 1997 LBMA Gold Price and LBMA Silver Price – Price Publication Delays In August 2014, the long-standing and tainted London Silver Fixing daily auction was replaced by a newly launched London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) Silver Price daily auction. Similarly, in March 2015, the infamous

Establishment Democrats Need to Stop Fear-Mongering and Start Proposing Real Economic Policies
"It's a giant land mine of a story that could go either way. Mueller could leak the pee tape tomorrow, or we could be sitting here two years from now talking about a money laundering indictment that has nothing to do with Russia, or, who knows, the president might even turn out to be innocent (in this matter), at which point we'd have to start asking some questions about what this was all about. We just don't know, and I know a lot of reporters from the start found the whole matter confusing, u

  Watch: The Mysteries Of Antarctica Revealed: “Someone Or Something Has Summoned The World’s Political and Religious Leaders to Antarctica”
The mysteries surrounding the world’s largest but least explored land mass continue to be revealed. From recent images showing what appear to be Pyramids similar to those of Giza to evidence of once-luscious rain forests, Antarctica seems to be giving up its secrets. Numerous political and religious leaders, including former Secretary of State John Kerry, have been taking secret trips to the remote continent, but as of yet, no one in any official capacity has explained why. It would take an expe

  Neck and Neck: Russian and Chinese Official Gold Reserves 
Official gold reserve updates from the Russian and Chinese central banks are probably one of the more closely watched metrics in the gold world. After the US, Germany, Italy and France, the sovereign gold holdings of China and Russia are the world’s 5th and 6th largest. And with the gold reserves ‘official figures’ of the US, Germany, Italy and France being essentially static, the only numbers worth watching are those of China and Russia. The Russian Federation’s central bank, the Bank of Russia

Digging Up An Old Story
Last night instead of watching the No Fans Left political program, I decided to watch a 1931 movie starring Bela Lugosi. Being in the Halloween Season and all, I watched the original “Dracula” where the main character was charismatic, kind, considerate, wealthy, and a little off. This movie was epic and the digitally remastered film really showed the viewers a good time. Bela Lugosi was claimed to have stayed in character for 6 months past the making of the movie and I found out later that he wa

Were Americans ever fit for stateless government 
Jacob Hornberger recently posted an article discussing his reasons why he considers the advent of the US national security state to be the worst thing the government has ever done.Bad as they are, the income tax, the federal reserve act, and government schooling don’t come close.His reason: The US national security state has “the power to kill Americans (and others) without risk of any criminal or civil liability. . . . All that US officials have to do is relate the killing to ‘national security

  A Constitutional Convention: American Suicide 
The enemies of freedom today (both liberal and conservative) are closer than ever to realizing their dream of forming a Constitutional Convention to pass crucial amendments to our present Constitution and restructure it for the modern world. The desire to get rid of the Founders’ Constitution has been a fanatical goal of political collectivists for the past 53 years when “in 1964 the Ford Foundation funded and orchestrated – via the CSDI (Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions) – the dr

  THERE JUST ISN’T ENOUGH GOLD
There are lies damned lies and Central Bank Gold statistics. Total official global gold holdings are reported to be 33,000 tonnes. That is 19% of all the gold ever produced in the world. But how can anyone ever believe any of these figures. Because no central bank ever has a public audit of all its gold holdings. Since the gold belongs to the people, they have the right to know if the gold actually exists, especially since the gold reserves are backing the currency. Why is the US gold not audite

BullionStar quoted in Wall Street Journal article on New York Fed gold
On August 10, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) published an article about the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) custody gold and the NY Fed’s gold vault.

Nico Simons: LBMA is the front for gold market rigging by central banks
Dutch financial journalist Nico Simons today compiles admissions of central bank involvement with the gold market and concludes that the London Bullion Market Association is just a front for central bank rigging of the price of the monetary metal. The LBMA, Simons writes, provides central banks with the secrecy necessary for market rigging and this rigging, not any free market, determines the gold price. Simons' analysis is headlined "The LBMA Is a Ploy of the Central Bank Community" and it's po

Did The Dutch Central Bank Lie About Its Gold Bar List
Head of the Financial Markets Division of the Dutch central bank, Aerdt Houben, stated in an interview for newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad published in October 2016 that releasing a bar list of the Dutch official gold reserves “would cost hundreds of thousands of euros”. In this post we’ll expose this is virtually impossible – the costs to publish the bar list should be close to zero – and speculate about the far reaching implications of this falsehood.  Recap This story started a couple of ye

Gold’s future confiscation is a growing reality, as currency confidence slides! - Part 2
This article is from previous articles featured in the Gold Forecasterweekly issues. [Subscribe:www.GoldForecaster.com]The subject of gold’s confiscation has come onto our screens again, but this time, being described as a “Myth” in the future. This thought comes from Canada, a favorite place for U.S. citizens to store their gold in the hopes that it will be outside the reach of the U.S. Federal Reserve. We respond to the article that described it as a myth, because we are firmly of the opinion
