The Year of the Euro
of scientists were engaged in hundreds of research projects believed to bring great benefits to the island nation. In one studio a painter employed blind helpers for the task of blending paints by smelling and tasting them. In this manner the olfactory and gustatory faculties could take their proper place in defining the spectrum of colors, a place long usurped by the faculty of vision. There was a studio where an ingenious architect was perfecting a new method to build human abodes from top to bottom. This was said to be justified by the kindred practice of those prudent insects, the bees and spiders.

Almost as soon as the war was over, American forces began to discover stupendous caches of Japanese war treasure. General MacArthur, in charge of the occupation, reported finding ‘great hoards of gold, silver, precious stones, foreign postage stamps, engraving plates and . . . currency not legal in Japan’

The mystery of the Gold Certificates 
How many of these $100,000 Gold Certificates were issued by our Treasury exclusively for the private Federal Reserve banking cartel following the confiscation of this gold from the people? How many have already been redeemed for our Treasury gold bullion? Or, are these certificate claims being double counted by both Treasury and the Fed? Since they are redeemable in "$100,000 in Gold" does that

The Ghost of Fort Knox Past - Part I 
The U.S. dollar is “as good as gold,” right? Well, not exactly. Those days and decades are long gone. The U.S. remains in the midst of currency woes and a global credit crisis that refuses to go away. Let’s look into what was once the foundation for the buck - gold bricks in Ft. Knox, Kentucky.

Empire At War For Energy & Money 
It appears that in history, overstretched empires have often resorted to fighting external wars in the vain attempt to preserve their ailing empire: 1) Through history more blood has been spilt, and more lives lost over gold than anything else. There have always been Gold Wars waged - historically, they centered on seizing by force the physical stockpiles or controlling strategic reserves of gold. 2) Today’s Gold War is more complex and deceptive. There is a very clear war being waged against gold (the same war that has been going on for close to 100 years).

Treasures and Gold Fever - Bix Weir
  The Great Silver Mystery (...and the greatest secret of all time!) 
During WWII, in order for the scientists to enrich enough Uranium for the A-bomb they had to make the largest electro magnet ever built. It would be called a Calutron and according to the narrator, they needed many tons of copper wiring which they claim was not available at the time due to war shortages. Instead of copper they went to the US Treasury and "borrowed" 14,700 TONS OF SILVER. (...of course silver is a much better conductor of electricity than copper, so the copper shortage story was likely intentionally planted to conceal the necessity of silver). 14,700 tons of silver is about 470,000,000

  The Weimar hyperinflation - 1923 – Germany
The most famous of modern monetary disasters occurred in Germany in 1923. The indirect cause of the German hyperinflation was the Treaty of Versailles, which brought to a close the First World War. More directly it was the level of reparations which the German people were required to pay to the victors. More directly still it was the occupation by France and Belgium of Germany's industrial heartland in the Ruhr valley, as an attempt to force the payment of those reparations, which were outstanding.

The Great Silver Mystery...REVEALED! 
Let me start off by saying that what I am going to postulate should not in any way be considered fact...because I am not in possession of proof. I am merely postulating on where all the mystery silver comes from to be sold on the physical silver market. Since the early 2000's almost every serious silver analyst has been pounding the table that there is no above ground silver available and it is the "buy of a lifetime".

  August 15, 1971: Inflation Unleashed 
The general public, the media and most financial observers were largely unaware of the momentous event that took place on August 15, 1971. However, the implications of that event have had an enormous impact on global financial conditions ever since. On that date, US President Richard Nixon “closed the gold window”. In essence, this meant the US would no longer honour the Bretton Woods Agreement of 1944, which
