The Ultimate FREE Silver Investors Guide.
Two of the most common questions I get inside of the
Sons of Liberty Academy
focus on two things. How to turn back the tide of this increasingly corrupt
system and how to financially prepare for a post-dollar world. This
does not surprise me, since fear and greed are the two most powerful
motivators known to man. What will surprise you,
is that for once, the answer to both questions, is the same answer.
Buying physical silver is by far the greatest act of
wisdom and rebellion any American can and should be doing right now
It is both a Silver Bullet to rebel against the
Elite's corrupt system and a Silver Shield to protect your family and wealth
in a post- dollar world. Buying physical silver is non-violent, non-compliant
resistance. Most importantly it works outside of the system and it cannot be
"As long as you play by the Elite's rules, the
Elite will rule." - Chris Duane
Any effort trying to work within the Elite's
paradigm, will fail
The Tea Party march on Washington failed. It failed like
the 2010 Tea Party Congressional campaign. If failed because nothing
happened, and nothing changed. That is not to say they were not great
exercises in power. It just will never bring about any real change because
awareness campaigns and marches are not enough. The Elite that control our
reality don't really care what we do or say, so long as we do not threaten
the root of their power. We have to hack at the root.
"Let them march all they want, so long as they
pay their taxes..." - General Alexander Haig
In this article, I intend to put forth a plan that
will fundamentally change the game and do it from outside the system
It will overthrow the Elitist system that enslaves
us with debt and do so without a shot being fired. Most importantly, there
is no way the Elite can stop it. The plan is quite simple, sell every
single asset you own right now and buy physical silver.
As with anything else in life, knowing the answer,
is not as important as knowing the "why."
The "why" is what brings about
fundamental change in your thinking.
This change in thinking brings about absolute
certainty of the outcome.
Absolute certainty brings about massive
Before I go any further, I want to have my
"cover my ass" moment
I am not a financial adviser.
(You can see my parody of these CONmen in my video Wall St Laughs at
Main St.) I am extremely biased and fully invested in
silver. Silver is extremely volatile and not suitable for most investors.
Look at what happened in 2008 and
just yesterday, it was down 5% in 15 minutes. I will not be held liable for
any losses you may incur but I will be glad to take any donations if things
do go the way I see it. You need to have food, water, guns, ammo and supplies
before you should even consider investing in silver full force. The most
important preparation you can make is metal preparation and nothing does that
better then the Sons of Liberty Academy.
Before you let my highly convincing arguments wash over you, take time to
do your own do diligence. Don't make any rash
decisions decisions like selling your house, 401k,
stocks, and family business to go out and by as much silver as you can get
your hands on, with a seven and a half month pregnant wife. Only a crazy person would do that... Right? :)
"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born
in sin. The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the
power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits
to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the great
fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would
be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the
slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to
create money." - Sir Josiah Stamp, Director of the Bank of England
(appointed 1928). Reputed to be the 2nd wealthiest man in England at that
Silver is the Achilles Heal
of the Elite's paradigm
By transferring their fake, corrupt paper money into
real honest money like silver, it will ultimately destroy of their control of
the money/debt. The more money/debt they create, the more it will
work against them as we put more of that money into silver.
Think of it, every single evil in this world, is
only made possible through Elite's debt/money system
Through the control of the of the privately and foreign
owned central banks, the Elite control our money, food, industries,
government, media, natural resources, capital markets, military and the
ultimately you. It enables wars, propaganda, police state,
corruption, pollution, crime, drug trade, disintegration of families, etc. In
fact you give me your evil that you fight against, I will show you how it
comes back to the very corrupt basis of our money. I intend to show how
silver is the antiseptic for all of these ills.
Buying physical silver acts both a Silver Bullet
to the all of the evils in the world and acts as a Silver Shield for all
that you love in this world
- Buying silver will bring amount
more political change than all of the political campaigns will ever
- It will reverse the tide of
wealth from going to the Elite and even to Asia.
- It will stop tyranny and
free billions from the bondage of debt slavery.
- It will bring about a new
era of human progress unlike anything we could imagine right now.
If we simply take away the Elite's power, how fast
could we progress as a human race if we did not waste our efforts on debt,
wars, and taxes? The Silver Bullet and Silver Shield can and will
bring about this change. Now that I have raised the bar to the moon,
let's get this show going.
Buying physical silver can be the Second American
Revolution without firing a single shot
In order for a revolutionary idea to take hold, you
must feel it in your soul. It is important to know that
everyone is not motivated the same way as others. I will attempt to lay out
as many rationals as I can for you to commit to
this plan and to encourage others to do the same. I will use both positive
and negative motivations on why you should buy silver. I will appeal to your
rational and irrational desires. I will give the financial, historic,
political, geological, mathematical, legal, intellectual, emotional, and even
spiritual reasons on "why" to buy physical silver.
To buy or not to buy silver is the greatest decision
you will have to make before the worldwide collapse of the debt based fiat
If you do fully commit to this idea, you will be
taking charge of your future and I believe you will create generational
wealth. If you do not commit to this plan, I bet your grand
children will curse and spit at you for not taking advantage of this
greatest opportunity ever. I do have a flair for the dramatic, don't I
Throughout history, Silver has been used as money in
more times in more places than gold
To function as money, a monetary item should possess
a number of features:
To be a medium of exchange:
- It should have liquidity, and
be easily trade able.
- It should be easily
transportable; precious metals have a high value to weight ratio.
To be a unit of account:
- It should be divisible into
small units without destroying its value; precious metals can be coined
from bars, or melted down into bars again, with a low percentage cost.
- It should be fungible: that
is, one unit or piece must be equivalent to another, which is why
diamonds, works of art or real estate are not suitable as money.
- It must be a specific weight,
or measure, or size to be certifiably countable.
To be a store of value:
- It should be long lasting, durable, it must not be perishable or subject to
- It should have a stable
- It should be difficult to
counterfeit, and the genuine must be easily recognizable.
Today silver is not used as money since it does not
circulate but still provides a crucial role as a store of value.
Why does silver or gold have value ?
This is a very fundamental question. I
think one of the best answers came from a movie call the Treasure of Sierra
Madre. An old miner was explaining why gold has value. He said that 1,000 men
head for the hills with pick axes and provisions after 6 months only one
finds any gold. That find represents not only the labor of the man that finds
that gold but that of the other 999 miners that did not find anything. That
is 6,000 months or 500 years scrambling over mountains going hungry and
thirsty. Think about the luck of finding something so rare. Think about how
much energy, labor, ingenuity and time that goes into finding silver or gold.
Sometimes it takes moving a couple tons of earth to find one ounce of gold or
silver. And here we can buy all of that for less than a dinner for four at
your local sports bar.
Why silver and not gold?
95% of all of the gold that has ever been mined is
still in existence in some form or another because it has treasured. 95%
(probably more if truth be told) of all of the silver that has ever been mine
has been destroyed and used in such small quantities that it is gone forever.
The Elite and their Central Banks own tons of gold and NO silver. Silver is
cheaper than gold, the average American can buy and ounce of silver without
much thought. If they wanted to buy even one ounce of gold they would have to
talk to their wife about it. This means that when the chickens come home to
roost, more people will be able to afford silver on the way up than gold.
Gold has very little uses compared to silver. Gold mines are common but
silver is mined mainly as a by product of zinc.
The Gold Anti Trust Action
Committee has led the charge in exposing the bankers manipulation of gold
Their investigations and awareness campaigns have lead to a heightened awareness in the investment
community. GATA is headed by Chris Powell and Bill Murphy and they spent
$265,000 to get a full page article in the in the Wall Street Journal asking
"Where is our Gold?" This brave action ask
the investment community why our Gold reserves have not been audited in 50
years and where is it. If you are like me, I judge men not by the answers
they give but by the answers they ask. This question was a direct assault at
the heart of the beast. GATA found out that awareness campaigns are nice but
they do not change the game. I remember year or so after that, Bill Murphy
and GATA had a campaign to actually sell gold and buy silver because the
battle against the bankers was much easier to win in the silver market. No
central banks have silver sell like they do gold. The market for silver was
so small compared to gold that very little money would be needed to have the
bankers capitulate in their duplicitous acts. When the Gold Anti Trust Action Committee says sell gold and buy
silver, you have to pay attention.
Silver has been used as an industrial metal for the
past hundred years and not been cherished for what it really is, a precious
Industrial metals are metals like aluminum, copper
and iron are plentiful and can be used in huge quantities and can be disposed
of or recycled. Unlike most industrial metals, silver is used in such small
quantities, in proportion to the finished product, that it is not recycled
except in photography. Silver has literally been thrown away into toxic trash
piles all over the world and thus disappearing. In fact there here is an article
showing that for 64 years the world has consumed more silver than it has
Silver is the indispensable metal, next to oil
silver is the most widely used commodity ever with over 10,000 uses
As the world technological progress expands, it uses
will explode even further. It's unique
characteristics are unlike any other commodity in the world.
Reflective of all Metals
- Greatest conductor of both
Heat and Electricity
- Strongly Resists Corrosion
- Second most Malleable and
Ductile Metal (Next to Gold)
- Recently Discovered to be a
Very Effective Anti-Microbial/Bacterial
It is used in
- Clothing (My new dryer uses
silver to clean clothes better with less water and energy.)
- Coins (Wait until you see the
demand skyrocket when the rest of the world wakes up from their Fiat
(Cell Phones, Computers, TVs,
- Medical Applications
(Hospitals have extensive uses of silver for it's
- Solar Energy (Peak Oil will
raise demand for silver until we get Peak Silver)
- Water Purification (Clean
water is the most basic need for human life and yet clean water is
becoming more rare.)
Silver is used in such small quantities and it's
unique characteristics make it irreplaceable, this makes its price inelastic
All commodities have a self
correcting pricing mechanism, except silver. If a commodities price
rises too high demand drops off as people seek substitutes or supply rises to
meet the demand and thus lowering the price. This does not exist with silver.
Silver is used in such small quantities in high tech components and there is
NO SUBSTITUTE for it. The manufacturer or customer will absorb the price
increase. Silver is now starting to be used in clothing to reduce smells
caused by bacteria. What is remarkable about this is that by weight silver
only represents 1/40,000th of total inputs.
When used in such little quantities price is
With over 20 million tons of polyester sports wear produced every year it consumes 1,200 tons of
silver or 38 million ounces. Let's say for example that the average computer
has a 1/10th of an ounce of silver in it. (I cannot find how much is actually
in a computer, Google fail.) This means that there is $3 dollars of silver in
the $2,000 computer. If/when silver goes to $1,000 an ounce now that same
amount of silver will be $100. Do you think Apple computer is going to throw
its arms in the air and cry that they have to not sell computers because
silver is too expensive? No, they will raise the price of the computer and
probably advertise that it has the most silver in it. Do you think the
average consumer is going to to say, "I would
buy a computer at $2,000 but at $2,100 no way?!" No, they will find a
way to get that $100 so they can the latest Miley Cyrus news.
It is not just the product that are at risk, it is
the companies, industries, and nations that are at risk
Apple has a market cap of $300 billion dollars and
if a strategic commodity like silver starts having shortages their billion
dollar empire is endangered. Companies like Apple will go into panic buying
securing any amount of physical silver they can because their entire value
added business is dependent on it. They will not buy SLV or certificates of
deposit, only the real silver thing. They will whip out their huge check book
and stock up. Now you can see why rising prices will actually increase
demand. It is not just the Computer industry that is relying on silver, it is the multi billion
dollar industries like Energy, Medical, the Military and soon the entire
Banking industry. (When their money/debt system collapses.) This directly effects national destinies. Governments held approximately
10B oz of silver in 1950 and have been supplying
that physical stock steadily into the market. Today there is no more of that
surplus silver left to sell. The nations that manages their resources the
best, will win the future.
Unlike industrial demand, monetary demand has no
The monetary demand for silver is what will
eventually send silver to the moon. Quadrillions of fake money into less than
a billion ounces... You can never have too much money, right?
"Paper is poverty...it is the ghost of money,
and not money itself." -Thomas Jefferson
I have seen bright and intelligent men that fail to
understand that the electronic digits on their computer screens are not real
It never fails them though, when they hold and ounce
of gold or a 100 ounce bar of silver. That is the sick thing with our society, that we have become so detached from real money
and the real world that we cannot even dream of it. Do yourself a favor
this week and go to your local coin shop and just touch and ounce of gold or
a big fat bar of shiny silver. Then look at the wad of paper in you wallet or worse digits on your bank statement and
tell me honestly where you would rather invest your future in.
Infinite money in a finite world
The Irresistible Force Paradox states "What
happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object?" Our debt
based monetary system must create more debt every year in excess of the debt
AND interest of the year before. ( Read The Contrived
Drama of the Debt Ceiling.) This coupled
with the fact that the more debt/money the bankers create, the more profit
for they have. The more money/debt the politicians spend, the more power they
have. This sick symbiotic relationship of the "Lender of Last
Resort" meets the "Spender of Last Resort" ensures
and exponential growth of money. The Elite will keep using the power of the
printing press to maintain their power, but will only accelerate their
demise. There is a mathematically inevitable end to this system, as infinite
money/debt meets the world's finite resources and ultimately the limits of
The more money/debt chasing after fewer goods and
services is what causes inflation
Ultimately, people's faith in the currency will fail
world wide. It will become evident that the Elite
intend to print the currency into oblivion, ruining the main function of
money as a store of value. When this happens people will literally throw
their depreciating currency at any tangible asset they can get their hands
on. Precious metals will be the main beneficiary of this because of their
unique properties, such as they do not deteriorate, and universally accepted.
The frightening thing is that it is not just American citizens, it this will
be the first time in human history where the entire world is so
interconnected and all on the same basic fiat monetary illusion. Stop
thinking of another Great Depression and start thinking another Dark Ages. My
suggestion, beat the rush and panic now!!
Over Population, Unfunded Liabilities, Global
Warming and Peak Oil have gotten a lot of attention over the last couple of
They are Elitist scary campfire stories used to
scare the masses into larger global governance. One key flaw in all of these
theories is that they all rely on our current monetary order remaining in
place. Man has since the time of the Tower of Babel built systems that went
against our natural world. This has created great feats, but like most man
made systems they are built with the focus of pushing to the extremes and not
focusing on a balance. Inevitably things that go up must come down and our
monetary system is no different. With the collapse of the monetary order all
of these theories/problems will cease to be issues because they will be self corrected by the end of the one thing that makes
them possible, exponential growth of money/debt.
When this current monetary order dies so will
millions if not billions of people, as the era of unlimited money comes to an
Think of the millions on food stamps that will have
no support system to carry them. Think of the billions in food subsidies
ending, food riots and the rocketing food and fuel prices globally. In this
hyper-inflationary collapse of the world's money that I predict, up to 90% of
your money will go to food and fuel. Not your mortgage, car payments, taxes,
tuition, medical bills... just basic necessities like food and fuel. Most
will not be able to make the transition and unfortunately will die. And that
is before the wars, riots, and violence take even more people down. This
dramatic shift in life will also prevent people from having children in this
turbulence. There will be a scar in the human experience that will be felt
This hyper-inflationary depression will stop global
manufacturing in it's tracks
If you are one of those misguided people that
believe in man made global warming, don't worry
your little mind, the collapse of the dollar will do more to stop human
activity than ten Kyoto Protocols or Carbon Ponzi Schemes.
Peak Oil theorists you can stop worrying too
When the collapse of the Dollar happens, the energy
intensive Western lifestyle will be cut by 75%. No longer will the economy be
able to support gas guzzlers, the largest military power ever known or
wasteful corporate giants. The value of oil will sky rocket and the demand
will drop significantly, leading to a much longer availability of our current
reserves. My greatest hope is that the Elite will lose their power to
manipulate the all important oil market. I have no
proof, but after studying these criminals for 6 years, I believe they have
suppressed technology that would have rendered oil less important. I also
believe that they have domestic resources here at home that they have not
tapped as they set out to strategically use the rest of the world's oil
first. My prediction is that after a new monetary order is established,
the Elite will announce "amazing new discoveries" here at home that
will shock the world. This will also push that Hubbert's
bell curve out further.
Things that cannot go on forever, won't
When the mathematically inevitable collapse of the
world fiat currencies, all of those problems/theories will no longer matter.
There will be massive inflation in real assets with precious metals, food and
fuel far outpacing all other assets. This will lead to to
a final exhaustion as the old powers try to hold on to power. This will bring
about regional wars, civil wars, revolutions, famine, and disease. These
events will cut populations, economies, debts, energy use, and our lives back
into a much more local and slower reality.
"If you don't hold it, you do not own it."
Silver has another awesome quality, it has allodial title to it
If you hold it, you own it. Almost everything else you
own is controlled by some extent by someone else. If you own your house out
right you still have to pay property taxes, which means
you don't really own it. Your cars, computers, TV's and clothes are rendered
less valuable with each registration, taxation, new fashion or planned
obsolescence. Even your stocks are not really yours because the actual
certificates are held the nefarious DTCC. Who knows if they are selling stock
that they do not have. Ever
heard of naked short selling?
Silver is without counter party risk
You do not have to rely on somebody fulfilling a
promise for your asset to have worth. All paper assets have counter party risk, they use interest rates to value the risk that you
might not get your money back. This will become very important as our society
collapses and promises are broken by all. When the collapse accelerates,
people will do the unspeakable as they become more and more desperate. People
whom you have relied on for years will suddenly break faith. This will happen
not only with individuals but corporations and governments. Pensions will be
cut, benefits terminated and interest payments not paid. This is where things
will get really scary. At this point we will either see a deflationary crash
or a hyper-inflationary depression. It will be deflationary if there is not
enough money to pay the increasing debt and interest. I believe that the
Elite will pay all of the obligations to keep their game going. This will
lead you to get every promise paid with toilet paper. Ben Bernanke was asked
if the government could afford to pay all of the unfunded liabilities of the
US government. He responded that while it was possible to pay all of the
liabilities it was impossible to guarantee the purchasing power of those
dollars. $100 toilet paper coming right up.
"Mad" Max Keiser started a campaign a few
months ago called CRASH JP MORGAN BUY SILVER.
He is a former banker that provides some of the most
cutting commentary on how Banksters really work.
This campaign of awareness caught the attention of more than a few people.
The campaign is to bring attention to JP Morgan and HSBC's huge short
position on silver. This short position is the largest short position... on
anything... EVER. I have heard estimates that for every dollar that silver
goes up, these two banks lose $1 Billion dollars. That may seem like a lot of
money, but when you understand that the paper price suppression silver and
gold is actually one of the pegs of support to the value of world currencies
and every other paper asset in the world, losing a billion a day means
nothing to support a Quadrillion dollar Ponzi scheme. Silver and gold are
actually competing currencies to the Dollar, Euro, Yen, and Yuan. If the Banksters can successfully hold the price of silver and
gold down they conversely give support to the paper assets all over the
Taking it in the shorts
When an investor shorts something they are literally
selling something that they do not have. They promise to buy the underlying
asset at the end of the contract. But what if they never buy and keep selling
stuff they do not have? It acts as a
artificial downward pressure on the price of the asset. This is very common
with stocks and can be easily papered over since most stocks are never held
in physical form. Commodities on the other hand are the real assets from the
earth and have tangible qualities to it. These banks have shorted or sold
into the market the equivalent of a six months of
total world production. Think about that if these banks were forced to cover
it would take either all of the silver miners 6 months to work solely on
filling that gap while the rest of the world goes without this vital metal.
The most likely thing that is going to happen is that if they are forced to
cover the price suppressors become price rocket boosters when they are force
to go out into the open market and buy to cover their short.
Harvey Organ exposed this most recent commentary:
"The huge rise in silver price has caught the
silver bankers totally offside on the silver banking. The BIS data released in
November (www.goldexsextant.com) shows that the G 10 bankers have
collectively sold forwards and swaps to the tune of 4 billion oz and short naked calls for another 3 billion oz. The
total, 7 billion oz represents 10 years of
production. If you just do the forwards, then it is 7 years of annual silver
Let us say the average cost of acquiring these
derivatives and forwards equate to $15.00 for silver. Thus collectively the
entire G10 bankers are feeling massive pain (losses) to the tune of: 7
billion oz of silver(
32.30-15.00) = 7 billion x $17.30 = 121.1 billion dollars of losses.This is in a market of only 14 billion dollars. It
begs the question to what economic need was this done.This
is still off balance sheet.
If you include only the forwards or swaps (the
lending of actual metal to which nothing has come back yet) then the losses
are: 4 billion x 17.30 or 69 billion dollars. Regardless how you look at it,
the bankers are in serious trouble with this huge rise in silver prices. I
hope you understand the severity of the situation."
"A billion here and a billion there pretty soon
you are actually talking about some real money."
This game has a fatal flaw
The real problem for JP Morgan and HSBC is that
there is not enough physical silver in the world to cover their short
position. These guys are too sharp and too connected to get caught by this
trap and I believe they will set up Enron like hedge funds in the Caribbean
to move their positions into these shell companies. And they may even go long
and ride the rocket up with us. Until the day comes when they cannot deliver
the real physical silver this game will go on. Quadrillions of money in Forex, Debt, Derivatives, Real Estate, Stocks and Bonds
are on the line. Not to mention the military, political, industrial, and
economic power that is tied to all of that. They will take all of the paper
loses necessary to keep this game going. Don't get upset about this, they
are creating a MASSIVE subsidy for you to buy more and more physical silver.
This squeeze is will first show in backwardation
Commodities naturally trade in Contango,
meaning that the price is cheaper today than it is to buy in the future. This
happens because there is interest, storage, and even uncertainty.
Backwardation is simple, it is more expensive to get
the commodity now than it is to get it in the future. This happens when investors fear a commodity is going to be hard to get in
the future they will pay a premium to get it now. Silver just went into
backwardation last week. This is just the first rumble of a much larger
earthquake. This has not happened since 1997 when Warren Buffet bought 130
million ounces of physical silver.
Speaking of Warren Buffet and his big silver
purchase, why did the ultimate value investor get into silver in such a big
The bigger question is why the ultimate "buy
and hold" investor got scared out of his position. He bought 130 million
ounces or 1/5 of the world's inventory at the time in 1997 and he held that
position all the way until 2006. Coincidentally that is the exact same time
that Barclay's started the SLV ETF with 130 million. The only comment I ever
found disclosing what happened with this billion dollar trade was Buffet
saying, "I bought it very early, I sold it very early. Other than that
it was perfect."
What I am about to say I have no proof of, but I
feel would make a lot of sense
Warren Buffet was heavily involved in the AIG
scandal with Hank Greenberg. Buffet's General Re took the other side of a lot
of shady AIG's positions. The deals ended Hank Greenberg in 2005 and yet
Buffet escaped with a $50 million slap on the wrist? This was all before AIG
stole $186 Billion dollars in the big bankster
bailout. Is it out of the realm of possibility to say that Buffet was feeling
the heat and offered the Elitist insiders his stash of silver to get out of
the kitchen? The timing
and situation is way too coincidental.
Friends don't let friends buy SLV
I have to admit I was so excited when SLV came out
onto the market in 2006. I loved the idea of buying physical silver with the
ease of buying a stock. It did not take long for the rumors to come out that
there was not enough physical backing of real silver and that JP Morgan and
HSBC was the custodians of the silver, I knew this was a scam to siphon off
investment demand out of the physical metal into another paper Ponzi scheme.
SLV in a few short years has increased its "reserves" 16 x the
original stock at it's
inception. When I see that SLV can add 523 tonnes
in one week and the price of silver did not go to $1,000 overnight, it
confirmed my suspicions.
Silver delays are well known through
out the investment community
Jim Puplava from
FinancialSense.com talked about him purchasing 1 ton of silver or 32,000 oz and it took him 3 months to get it filled and
delivered. So let's think about this, an individual demanding 1 ton of
physical silver took 12 weeks to fill, but SLV can "take delivery"
of 523 tons in one week, give me a break! Recently even the huge supplier the
Perth Mint announced a 6 week delay in 100 oz
bullion bars of silver. These are not small coins,
this is a 7 pound slab of silver that can be produced really quickly. The
even larger US Mint had a record month last month with over 4.5 million
ounces of silver sold in January eclipsing a record of 4.25 million ounces
that was set only two months before that. While that may seem like a lot, it
is only $135 million in sales for a month, Apple
lost $10 Billion in 15 minutes.
Eric Sprott is another
pioneer investor that just started the $575 million Sprott
Physical Silver Trust in November of last year as he believes that:
"Silver will be the investment of the decade."
This fund by itself could force the hand of the
Elite. I do not think he will be successful because he has too much to lose
and when the Economic Hitmen come a knocking, I am
sure he will back down. Poor Matt Simmons... One thing I will strongly
disagree with is all of these fund mangers telling
the dream of silver and selling them silver mining
stocks. DO NOT INVEST IN ANY PAPER ASSET INCLUDING THE VERY ATTRACTIVE SILVER
Andrew Maguire the whistle blower
He was a former silver trader in London
who contacted the CFTC last year about insider knowledge on how JP Morgan
manipulates the silver market. He informed the CFTC in advance of the silver smackdowns led by JP Morgan. These coordinated attacks
lead to huge profits for the insiders, lowers the price of silver, and wipes
out bullish investors. After being blown off by the CFTC, he contacted GATA
and they published the news to the world. When he turned whistle blower a few
days later he and his wife were involved in a serious hit and run in which
the attacking driver sped away and nearly ran over more people who tried to
stop him from getting away. Police helicopters were called in and captured
the driver but no details were released to the public. Andrew Maguire was
slated to be on a bunch of news shows detailing his story but all of them
except for one (listen here.) canceled on him after the "accident". King World News who
ran the interview was cyber attacked the day after the interview.
I predicted that silver would go to $50 an ounce by
the end of March in my article 2011: Doom is
Always 6 Months Away
Pretty bold to predict a 62% increase in 3 months
after a 74% increase in the 6 months before that. This was based on a CRIMEX
default in the delivery month of March. I think we are getting close to the
end of the line for paper manipulation of the physical market. The US mint is
having record sales of silver, big money players like Eric Sprott and the richest man in the world Carlos Slim Helu are sniffing the silver market,
and the Fed is going to be under pressure to print even more money. But my
predictions are small compared to these guys...
"There is very little silver and we need it for
everything." - Stephen Leeb on his $100
an ounce prediction.
How about this video predicting $936 silver
Adrian Douglas of Gata
predicts this because there is 45 to 100 times the amount of paper silver and
gold to the real metal. They do this to artificially support the value of the
dollar. When this ends, it will explode the value of the real silver and
gold. Adrian sums it up that investments in precious
metals is not "about preserving your wealth but multiplying your
Mike Maloney predicts $1,500 silver in
this video. Bix Weir from GATA
predicts $6,000 silver.
Ultimately all of these predictions are really ridiculous because it is based
on the fundamental lie that the dollar is going to be in existence.
My most shocking prediction is that silver may go to
$50 and then you will not be able to buy silver at any price!
The reason for this prediction is that this is all
about illusion and once that illusion is broken no one will trade their REAL
money for FAKE money. This is where ratio investing comes into play.
"Assets are neither really
created or destroyed. They merely shift from on perceived value to
another." -Chris Duane
The purpose of this exercise is to see that all
assets right now is based off of an illusion of wealth, debt and the dollar. Even
the value of real assets like property and companies are tied to this
illusion. What is your house worth if there was no 30 year mortgage?
This paradigm is going to mathematically end. The infinite growth/debt model
with collide with a very finite world. As the pillars of this illusion start
to collapse, more and more people will shift their wealth out of paper
promises into tangible assets. And since gold has a market cap that is nearly
200 times higher than silver and trades at 45 ounces of silver to one ounce
of gold, the potential upside of silver is unlike any other investment
opportunity out there. Another was to look at the value of the price of
silver relative to gold, is that silver is only 2% of the value of gold. Eric
Sprott says that that there is $6 Trillion in
investable gold and only $30 Billion in investable silver.
Gold and Silver Ratio
Right now it takes 42 ounces of silver to buy 1 oz.
of Gold. (42 to 1)
700,000,000 ounces of silver was mined in 2009
versus 80,000,000 ounces of gold which is about a 9 to 1 ratio.
There was an estimated 40,000,000,000 ounces ever
mined of silver and an estimate 5,300,000,000 ounces of gold was mined. That
ratio is 7.5 to 1 ratio.
Silver has been consumed as an industrial metal, where as gold has been cherished as a precious metal
As a result there is still about 5 billion ounces of
gold in the world. Silver inventories, on the other hand, have been decimated
with only and estimated 5 billion ounces above ground. The other 39 billion
ounces are in the landfills of the world in tiny amounts. Maybe if the price
of silver rises significantly enough, we will see massive recovery efforts in
Historically the Ratio has been 16/1 to 10/1. 4x undervalued.
If the total amount of Gold and Silver above ground
is equal to 5 billion ounces that it would put the ratio at 1/1. 42x undervalued.
Total amount of physical Gold and Silver in
monetary/bullion form would put the ratio at 1/5. 230x
undervalued. (So Silver to Gold ratio is 1 to 5, yes there is less silver
bullion than there is gold.)
So if the price of Gold never went up and based off
of Silver market fundamentals it should find some market balance. At that
point you could in the extreme case trade your 42 ounces of silver for 210
ounces of gold! (1/5 silver to gold ratio.)
Historically, silver been seen as the poor man's
gold and it was the money of the common man
Silver was not as rare as gold, and plentiful enough
to be used to pay for basic necessities such as bread and milk. I think in
this paradigm of multi-million dollar basketball contacts and no sense of
economic reality, it is good to use something I find useful like historical
ratios for determining value. For example an average Roman soldier was paid
one Denarius for each day of
service. Each Denarius was 1/10th of an ounce or about $2.70
a day which is equivalent to the world's average daily pay. That valuation
lasted for hundreds of years for basic labor. So now when you hear,
"brother can you spare a (silver)dime?"
you know know that it meant a day's wages. Later,
skilled craftsman pushed that wage to almost and
ounce a day. Our Constitution actually defines a real
"dollar" is a coin containing 371.25 grains (troy) of fine silver
or .77 ounce of silver. My hero, Henry Ford pushed that wage to an
unbelievable $5 a day or 3.6 ounces a day which was seen as excessive at the time.
Today an average worker makes let's say $100 a day. If there was some
economic reality in the system, like real money, a 1/10th of an ounce would
equal a days wages of
$100. Therefore an ounce of silver should be about $1,000 an ounce, a far cry
from today's price of $27. ( The longer I write this
article the more it goes up, now at $33...)
A day's wage was about a dime or a 1/1oth of an
ounce for 2,000 years and currently for about 4 billion people
You could buy about 16 years of hard manual labor
for about $10,000 with a bag 5,000 of 90% silver dimes. I know college kids
with $10,000 dollars available with their credit cards. If they were smart,
they would blow their money on a bag of silver instead of beer, pizza and
spring break. For $200,000, parents could buy 320 years of hard manual labor
in silver dimes or you could send your kid to college to get drunk and find
Some other historical reference points include Jesus
being sold out by Judas Iscariot for 30 Shekles or
15 ounces of silver. Can you imagine selling out your friend, much less
Jesus Christ, for $400 bucks? What if we had $1,000 ounce silver? For
$15,000, there are a lot of people who would do the deed. (Isn't that the
price hit men charge in movies?) It is also interesting to note that was the
same value for a slave at the time.
Plots of land were bought in the bible anywhere from 50 ounces to 200 ounces of silver.
Good luck finding average properties for $1,250 to $5,000 a
piece. But again, what if silver was $1,000 an ounce? Finding
properties from $50,000 to $200,000 is a snap. So the purpose of this
exercise is to see the ratio between a known silver amount and a known asset.
When you take away the manipulated measuring stick of the dollar, the only
way to compare an assets value is to compare assets to other assets. So right
now it may cost you 2,000 to 8,000 ounces of silver to buy a plot of land. If
we have a reversion to the mean, and our debt/money system collapses, you
should be able to pick up land for 50 to 200 ounces. I really think that this
is even too high, so lets
keep digging with this theme.
There are 36 billion acres of land in the world of
which 8 billion acres are arable. So the ratio of silver to total land is
1 ounce of silver to 45 acres of land and 1 ounce of silver per every 10
arable acres. Now I am in Ohio and an acre of arable land here goes from
$10,000 to say $40,000 an acre. This would give a dramatically higher implied
value of silver.
What I am about to tell you was my prime motivator
to bet the house on silver, literally
When Silver peaked in 1980 you could buy the average
house for about 800 ounces of silver. This was the days of 20% mortgages and
the inflation "slayer" Paul Volker. If you got out of housing at
the top of the recent housing bubble you could have traded out of your
inflated house value and into the undervalued silver and took delivery of say
40,000 ounces of silver. If/when we get back to the silver house ratio of
1980 you will be able to buy 50 houses for your 40,000 ounces. My advanced
strategy that I will be using will result in no taxation on the gains and be
able to create 10 times the wealth in this scenario. I explain it in my Sons of Liberty Academy.
I believe that we will shoot way past the previous
1980 peak in the house/silver ratio because there is so much less silver, so
much more money, and because of the housing boom, millions of more homes. In
fact in Arizona right now I can pick up a 2,000 sq ft home for $40,000 or 1,290 ounces. Could it go to 100
ounces? Who knows? I am confident that this will blow much farther in the
extreme. Silver has much more up side and the
housing market is nowhere near the bottom.
At the peak of the Hunt Brothers gambit silver
climbed to $48 an ounce. Using the government's numbers for adjusting for
inflation that would equal $128 an ounce
Or conversely today's price of $31 dollars an ounce
is equal to $11 an ounce in 1980. These numbers are very flawed and benefit
the government as they have shown to lower inflation. (Read And Now For My
Next Trick... No Inflation.) The official
inflation implies that the money supply has risen 200% in the past 30 years.
Every chart I see shows the money supply to have grow
everywhere from 8 to 10 times not 2 times.
In 1980 the entire GDP of the country was $2.5
Trillion dollars and the Federal Budget $590 Billion dollars.
Today the GDP is $14.5 Trillion and the Federal
budget is actually larger than the entire GDP of the US in 1980 at $3.5
$1.5 Trillion of that is pure debt.
Do you hear the printing presses whirring? Or more
accurately the key strokes on Bernanke's iMac.
The Fed probably has a
iPhone app to create billions of dollars on the go...
Silver has returned 25% annually since 2002 for
nearly a 600% return. This is amazing in light of almost every other assets
class getting destroyed.
There are 6.5 Billion people in the world and about a 800 million ounces of silver bullion currently above
ground. That is .12 ounces of silver per person if every ounce was evenly
distributed around the world. But we know that it is not evenly distributed.
Think about you local millionaire could easily buy
a ton of silver. Based off of that, only 25,000 people in the word could ever
own exactly 1 ton of silver. Yet there are 10
million millionaires in the world.
Quadrillions in to a billion
Another way of looking at silver is by it's market capitalization. If
there is a billion ounces of silver bullion in existence and silver is at
$30, the market cap of silver is $30 billion dollars. Let's look at how
silver's market cap relates to other values.
One gold miner Gold Corp has a market cap of $30
billion. (1 to 1)
Bill Gates is worth $53 billion. (1 to 1.76)
The total market cap of all gold miners is $250
billion. (1 to 8.3)
It is 1/10th of the market cap of Apple computer
which stands at $300 billion. (1 to 10)
The total amount of FRN's in circulation in the
world is $800 billion. (1 to 26)
The total amount of other world currencies in
circulation is $2 Trillion. ( 1 to 66)
Physical gold's estimated market cap is $6 Trillion.
(1 to 200)
The total market cap of all private businesses is
$10 Trillion. (1 to 333)
The total GDP of America is $15 Trillion. (1 to 500)
- The total estimated market
cap for all American stocks is $15 Trillion. (
1 to 500)
- The total estimated amount of
US Treasuries is $15 Trillion. (1 to 500)
- The total estimated amount of
world debt is $15 Trillion. (1 to 500)
- The total amount of corporate
and muni debt is $25 Trillion (1 to 833)
- The total value of commercial
property is $30 Trillion. (1 to 1,000)
- The total estimated market
cap of the rest of the world's stock market is $50 Trillion.(1 to 1,666)
- The world GDP is $55
Trillion. (1 to 1,833)
- The estimated value of
Residential Real Estate is $80 Trillion. (1 to
- The estimated unfunded
Government liabilities is $250 Trillion. (1
The estimated value of Reported derivatives is $700
Trillion. (1 to 23,333)
Finally and estimated $800 Trillion in shadow
derivatives in the shadows. (1
The example above takes into
account ALL of the silver bullion above the earth's surface.
If we narrow it down to just the available silver in
the COMEX/CRIMEX warehouses of 100 million ounces all of those ratios explode
by a factor of 10!
The United States alone spends more money on
interest on the national debt EVERY DAY of $4 Billion dollars than the entire
warehouse of available silver valued at about $3 Billion dollars.
Let's take this even further to really grind it home
Inside the COMEX/CRIMEX warehouses are two
classifications of silver, Registered and Eligible. Registered means that there
is silver available on demand delivery. Eligible silver can become Registered
and deliverable if the owner of the silver wants to sell it. This has a hook
of that it cannot be encumbered by obligations like loans taken out against
the bullion or if it has been leased out. (That means if you have silver at
the warehouses they can "loan" out your silver with a promise to
pay it back.)
"If you don't hold it, you do not own it."-
There are only 42 million ounces of silver in the
CRIMEX Registered and deliverable category
That is less than $1.5 Billion dollars
worth of silver. The world could sneeze and come up with that kind
of money. The Elite protect this little hoard with a myriad of tricks but
let's start with the rules. The CRIMEX has a known policy that you can sell
unlimited amount of silver (including paper silver that does not exist) but
you can only take only a limited amount of silver off of the table. They
recently raised the margin
requirements by 50% in an effort to shake out weak
hands using leverage, and silver went up in response. If things start getting
out of control they can force you to settle for the dollar value of the
contract. They have even paid in the past premiums to
the the contract to dissuade physical delivery.
The Circle K Boys
If things get really scary for the Elitist banking
institutions, they will change and break the rules as they go to drive out
any rebels who dare to fight against their control system. All of you have
heard of the Hunt brothers trying to "corner" the silver market in
the 80′s. Well, take some time and read the REAL
story the Elite don't want you to know. The Rockefeller
and Rothschild banking families change the rules, raised national interest rates,
margin requirements, and even possibly murdered the King of Saudi Arabia to
put a stop to the Hunts attack at the root of the Elite's power. The long and
the short of the whole sad affair DO NOT USE LEVERAGE PLAYING THIS GAME. Pay cash and take
physical possession of your
While these tricks might work on the big boys, it
cannot stop an army of us ants from loading up on all of the silver we want
We can all be mini Hunts and essentially do the same
thing by taking delivery. There is a huge disconnect
between the paper price of silver printed by the COMEX and the real world price
of silver. Check out this awesome site
that shows the difference between the CRIMEX price and the EBAY price of
silver. The most popular coin of silver in production is the American Silver
Eagle and it is going for +31.9% over the CRIMEX price. That does not
include shipping and insurance! That is $10 dollars over spot and the premium
that these coins got when most these coins were produced was about $1.50, a
666% rise in implied premium. The scary thing is, while things are starting
to get warmed up, these premiums will rise as silver becomes more scarce in the market.
The Silver Alliance of ants and big boys are
mounting their final assault on the CRIMEX in March 2011
There are over 50,000 contracts that have the
potential to take delivery of 250 million ounces of silver in March alone.
(Remember there are only 42 Million ounces available.) So just before these contracts
came due the Elite raised the margin requirements and then proceeded
smack down silver after hours by 5%. This weak attempt will not dissuade
enough buyers from standing for delivery in March. The last delivery month in
December, silver was up 30% as hedge funds squeezed the CRIMEX. Now that the
sharks smell blood, this raid will be much harder and faster. A 30% rise this
time would bring silver to $43, but I figured that it will be even more
extreme this time around and shoot for $50. I also predict that the $50 price
will not just be a blow off top. This time the silver supply shortage will be
so apparent, that the illusion is so completely destroyed. People will no
longer sell their REAL money for Fake money anymore. If they do, they will
want $1,000 an ounce for their silver. Go big or go home.
"The current international currency system is the product of the past,"
he said, noting the primacy of the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency and its
use in international trade and investment. - Chinese President,
China, China, China
China is without a doubt a huge factor in the rise
of silver. Once it was the largest exporter of silver, it has swung in 5
years to the complete opposite direction. That is a swing in demand of over
200 million ounces. China has already started to ban exports of some of it's rarer earth
minerals. I have no doubt China will do the same with silver
soon enough. China also has the largest holdings of fiat money of our debt
and it only makes sense for them to diversify out of the unstable dollar into
real assets like silver. The last time China had any significant silver holdings
the Western world went to war with China in the Opium Wars. And
judging by the recent trial
balloons being floated by the likes of Donald Trump we
might be going to war with China yet again and this time I think the Chinese
will be ready.
Speaking of the Elite screwing countries out of
their silver, do some research on the Crime of 1873
The Elitist bankers de-monetized silver after the
Civil War that caused nearly 20 years of grinding deflation that benefited
the bankers who held the debt. This return to the gold standard was done
ahead of the largest silver find of the Comstock Lode that would have freed
America from the debts of the bankers. Here are some starter articles, The Crime of 1873
and the Wizard of Oz and On the
"Crime of 1873″.
China is also encouraging it's
citizens to buy silver as an investment for the first time in 60 years.
Take a look at the State TV unveiling silver as an investment
like Ford would show off a new F150. If a billion people by a little of
anything, huge swings tend to happen in markets. Also think about how easy it
is for the average American to buy 100 ounces of silver while it would seem
impossible for the average Chinese citizen to accumulate that. If we are
truly headed for world wide flattening of the labor
markets as the Elite desire, it is only prudent to stock up on silver as a
hedge against that.
The Silver Bears
have caused quite a stir recently with their humorous take on the Silver
There is even rumors that
China is leading the charge in shorting the paper CRIMEX market while they
are taking delivery with the physical metal. Once they have taken delivery of
all of the physical silver their shell companies can declare bankruptcies and
they ride off into the sunset.
away from all of the silver fundamentals and let's look at the real reason
why we are all buying silver, the Dollar
Let's face it if the dollar was worth it's weight in gold, we would
not be in this mess. Because the Elite have manipulated the Dollar and the
price of silver, historical malinvestments have
been made and all of the silver ever mined is close to exhaustion. The dollar
is supported by many things, all of which are failing.
- 10 years of war have hurt the
- We are losing the monopoly on
oil, which is why Iran is in the cross hairs.
industry is decimated.
- Our boarders are wide open
bringing in 24 million illegal immigrants into the system.
- The housing and stock bubbles
have wiped out the middle class.
- Debt is rising at all levels,
- Our government is weak and
- Saudi monarchy
- 80 million baby boomers are
now starting to suck from the giant ponzi scheme.
- Our debt is no longer wanted
overseas leading to the "lender of last resort", the Fed, to
create more and more money out of thin air.
It will not take long for all of the supports to get
knocked out and it will be a world wide run to the
fire exit of gold and silver. There will be no warning and there will be not
time to move assets around. The long term chart does not look good and with
over 500 other currency collapses,
why would the dollar be the exception? Beat the rush and panic early.
"For you know quite well that the day of the
Lord's return will come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night. When people
are saying, "Everything is peaceful and secure," then disaster will
fall on them as suddenly as a pregnant woman's labor pains begin. And there
will be no escape. But you aren't in the dark about these things, dear
brothers and sisters, and you won't be surprised when the day of the Lord
comes like a thief. For you are all children of the light and of the day; we
don't belong to darkness and night. So be on your guard, not asleep like the
others. Stay alert and be clearheaded." Thessalonians 5:2-6
I have seen articles by Adrian Douglas
from GATA that claim the USGS said silver would be extinct by 2020. I said
with all the stuff I know about silver this would be the most incredible
exclamation point on why you should sell every single asset you have and
buy silver now! Adrian did not cite the source but I knew this guy would
not put his reputation on the line for a crazy claim like that, so I sent an
email to the USGS myself.
"Adrian Douglas wrote a report that claimed the
USGS said that silver was going to be the first element to become extinct and
as soon as 2020. Was this written by the USGS and where is it?"
I got back from the USGS was this...
I don't believe that the USGS would ever use the
term "extinct" in regards to the depletion of a resource. The USGS
estimates current worldwide silver reserves are estimated to be 510,000 tons.
The global demand for silver in 2009 was about 24,400 tons. If
nothing else were to change, the implication would be that we'd run out of
silver in about 20 years. However, new deposits are still being discovered,
and scarcity should lead to higher valuation, which should eventually lead to
more exploration interest. Here's a diagram showing
silver's relative abundance.
While cheap silver ore may become scarce, given the
right price, it shouldn't become extinct!
USGS Office of Communications & Publications
Science Information Services - Alaska
That last line is what this is all about
The bankers manipulated the price of silver down
that gave rise to a quadrillion dollar Ponzi scheme to give them unlimited
power and profits. This manipulation has caused incredible malinvestment so that all of humanity has trashed a
precious metal to consume it to the point of oblivion. At some point, very
soon, the physical market is going take over and all of the games that the
bankers are playing will end. It will be game over and you will never see a
more dramatic rise in price in anything, ever. Quadrillions in debt/money to
less than a billion ounces of honest money silver. When silver's value is
re-established and once again treated as a precious metal, humanity will stop
wasting this metal and the higher prices will force wiser use and recycling
of silver. Silver will not become extinct, it
will just go to the moon!
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity
There is no other example that even comes close to
the stage that is set for the silver rocket launch. Silver has massive
economic forces pushing it, the declining dollar, and industrial demand. The
entire 5,000 year production of the human race is all but used up. The
entire world is for the first time blinded by fiat and digital money. If
only one of these reasons can true, it would be enough to create generational
wealth. All of these together tells me that an
average American can with very little effort, raise a king's ransom of
silver. Truly a once in Human History opportunity.
All over the world we see these color revolutions.
They are Western Elite's funding revolution in areas of the world where they
seek to dominate. There was the Orange Revolution of the Ukraine, Rose
Revolution of Georgia, and the Tulip Revolution in Kyrgyzstan. Now we are
seeing the uprisings in the Middle East and a Jasmine Revolution in China.
These revolutions used a simple color to signify a feeling real change. I
propose that we start the Silver Revolution. Our sole purpose is to
strike the root of the Elite's power, which is their money system. The best
part of this is that this system is going to collapse of it's own cancerous excesses. All we have to do
is be the silver straw that breaks the Elite's back.
In the end, I believe that we need a monetary system
that has competition. Gold and silver should circulate along with debt free
treasury notes. Usury should be abolished. Those that use the deceitful
practice of forgery, I mean Fractional Reserve Banking, should be
thrown in jail. This would end the era of gamblers and insiders and allow
honest days pay for an honest days
