Are Republicans or Democrats Better for Gold & Silver Performance?

Here’s a breakdown of gold and silver performance by political party since the gold and silver bull since 2001.


 


 

 

What is very clear from the above is that Democrat Clinton, who was very close to the banksters, and in particular, Citigroup banksters, was awful for gold and silver, while Republican Bush, who was very close to oil interests and loved war, was great for the performance of gold and silver. Gold and silver’s performance during Democrat Obama’s tenure thus far has been closer to their performance during Republican Bush’s tenure than Democrat Clinton’s tenure. However, I believe that part of gold and silver’s resiliency during Democrat Obama’s tenure has a lot to do with the fact that when Clinton was in office, the bankers actually had to lease tonnes of physical gold and silver into the open market to suppress the price of gold and silver because they could not yet use the immoral and unethical HFT algos they utilize today to suppress the price of gold and silver in paper markets because they had not yet developed and perfected these algos to manipulate gold and silver prices as well as stock markets in general. Therefore, during Clinton’s tenure, the bankers relied primarily on selling physical gold and silver, and not paper gold and silver, to suppress gold and silver prices. For all intents and purposes, one can substitute the world “sell” for the word “lease” above, because though Central Banks still carry this physical gold on the asset side of their balance sheets as “leased” gold, this gold is now likely forever gone from their vaults and will never return. No sane persons or institutions will now part with their physical gold and physical silver and accept fiat paper currency in return. Thus, though Democrat Obama has been a very banker-friendly President like his predecessor Clinton, gold and silver prices during his tenure have risen, in our opinion, in spite of Democrat Obama, and with a less banker-friendly President in office, the prices of gold and silver would likely be even higher than their present prices.

Today, bankers have to create an illusion of massive gold and silver supply by falsely creating billions of paper ounces of gold and silver in the futures markets that simply do not exist in the physical world, aka the REAL world, because they have no more physical gold and silver to sell into the market to suppress the price of gold (or no more physical gold and silver with which they are willing to part). Thus, they are struggling right now to crush the price of gold and silver at a time when all major global fiat paper currencies are right now at their most fragile point in history on their way to worthlessness. Again, we endorse neither the Republican or Democrat candidate in today’s US elections as we believe both candidates are awful choices, so we have presented the two charts above merely for your digestion, and interpret the charts as you may.
