Answer To :sam_site - 5/22/2017 at 11:14 PM GMT
Globalist investigator Leuren Moret discovered that Fidel Castro, far from a grass roots revolutionary, was a Farnese duke from a prominent Black Nobility family. The Farneses, the Medicis and the Borgias are famous ruling bloodlines with a long history.

Castro was a globalist agent all along. No wonder our globalist-controlled CIA betrayed JFK and cancelled the Bay of Pigs air support so the Cuban rebel army could be captured by Castro on the beaches and his Cuban communist revolution survived an invasion by expats from Miami.

CIA director Allen Dulles was fired by JFK for this treason and JFK promised to break up the CIA into a thousand pieces. Dulles was reinstated after JFK was killed in Dallas and to add insult to injury placed on the Warren Commission to find his killer.

Right. Gold is money, but, if I understand well, we have no use for it in the world, because of popular TV show and because the idea has been erased from conscious memory The idea has not been lost from conscious memory, just wait for banks to go bust and you will see. You might just want to check Mises regression theorem on money https://mises.org/library/origin-money-and-its-value .................... We need to explain why money has a certain exchange value on the market. It won't do (so these economists thought) to merely explain this by saying people have a marginal utility for money because of its purchasing power. After all, that's what we're trying to explain in the first place—why can people buy things with money? Mises eluded this apparent circularity by his regression theorem. In the first place, yes, people trade away real goods for units of money, because they have a higher marginal utility for the money units than for the other commodities given away. It's also true that the economist cannot stop there; he must explain why people have a marginal utility for money. (This is not the case for other goods. The economist explains the exchange value for a Picasso by saying that the buyer derives utility from the painting, and at that point the explanation stops.) People value units of money because of their expected purchasing power; money will allow people to receive real goods and services in the future, and hence people are willing to give up real goods and services now in order to attain cash balances. Thus the expected future purchasing power of money explains its current purchasing power. But haven't we just run into the same problem of an alleged circularity? Aren't we merely explaining the purchasing power of money by reference to the purchasing power of money? No, Mises pointed out, because of the time element. People today expect money to have a certain purchasing power tomorrow, because of their memory of its purchasing power yesterday. We then push the problem back one step. People yesterday anticipated today's purchasing power, because they remembered that money could be exchanged for other goods and services two days ago. And so on. So far, Mises's explanation still seems dubious; it appears to involve an infinite regress. But this is not the case, because of Menger's explanation of the origin of money. We can trace the purchasing power of money back through time, until we reach the point at which people first emerged from a state of barter. And at that point, the purchasing power of the money commodity can be explained in just the same way that the exchange value of any commodity is explained. People valued gold for its own sake before it became a money, and thus a satisfactory theory of the current market value of gold must trace back its development until the point when gold was not a medium of exchange.1 The two great Austrian theorists Carl Menger and Ludwig von Mises provided explanations for both the historical origin of money and its market price. Their explanations were characteristically Austrian in that they respected the principles of methodological individualism and subjectivism. Their theories represented not only a substantial improvement over their rivals, but to this day form the foundation for the economist who wishes to successfully analyze money.

Computers, long distance phone calls, vcr players, surgery are just a few of the items that are cheaper than 37 years ago.

Gold is not manipulated. It just has lost its use in the world. The youth do not buy gold, the youth loves the government and wants more of it. They will never buy gold. They will buy bitcoin and have their wealth confiscated. Popular tv and movie shows that depict armageddon or viruses or zombies never show people trading gold for items. The idea has been lost from conscious memory.

"depict Armageddon or viruses or zombies never show people trading gold for items." Food ,medicine and Guns and ammo will be traded if it comes down to Armageddon. PM's not so much. Now a plain old government currency collapse or as in most of the worlds case when the Private banking CON is over and the banksters are hanging high then the PMs will be your money until the new CON takes effect.

 Gold Bullion +2 for Week vs Falling Dollar as Trump's Troubles Spread to Turkey
 - Bullion Vault - 
"Giant gold-backed ETF the SPDR Gold Trust (NYSEArca:GLD) in fact shrank Thursday as stockholders liquidated shares, reducing the amount of bullion need to match its value by 1 tonne to one-month low at 850 tonnes." Once again, I see these claims being made here but I still have yet to see any verifiable evidence to support any of these claims. How reliable are GLD's holding reports? GLD does not give retail investors the right to redeem for any of its mystery physical gold holdings. This fact alone ensures the GLD shares to be nothing more than paper at the end of the day. GLD also has a glaring audit loophole in their prospectus that states they have no right to audit subcustodial gold holdings. To this day, I have not heard of a single good reason for the existence of this backdoor to the fund. Some other red flags I've stumbled upon, verified and welcome everyone else to verify for themselves: "Did anyone try calling the GLD hotline at 866▪320▪4053 in search of numerical details on GLD's insurance? The prospectus vaguely states "The Custodian maintains insurance with regard to its business on such terms and conditions as it considers appropriate which does not cover the full amount of gold held in custody." When I asked about how much of the gold was insured, the representative proceeded to act as if he didn't know and said they were just the "marketing agent" for GLD. What kind of marketing agent would not know such basic information about a product they are marketing? It seems like they are deliberately hiding information from investors." "I remember there was a highly publicized visit by CNBC's Bob Pisani to GLD's gold vault. This visit was organized by GLD's management to prove the existence of GLD's gold but the gold bar held up by Mr. Pisani had the serial number ZJ6752 which did not appear on the most recent bar list at that time. It was later discovered that this "GLD" bar was actually owned by ETF Securities."

Two months after the Hunt brothers debacle the 'price of silver' in 1980 went from about $49 to under $11 in about 2 months. (wiki) Silver is now $16.85 I am not sure what the author is on about. It is not actually cheaper than it was in 1980 at least for some time. Is silver a bargain now? When I check the price on a monthly chart I see that it is "getting cheaper" In other words it is getting swapped for $USD. OBVIOUSLY Whether this is market rigging I do not know ( or care really) My advice..do not swap your dollars for silver at this point in time. There is no rush!

 Trump 'Witchhunt' Sees Gold Price Pop $30 Below 'Game Changing Level'
 - Bullion Vault - 
"giant gold-backed ETF fund the SPDR Gold Trust (NYSEArca:GLD)" This is questionable at best. Paper gold GLD claims to be fully backed by physical gold bullion but yet it refuses to give retail investors the right to redeem for any of these ‘claimed’ gold bullion. This fact alone would mean GLD shares are nothing more than paper at the end of the day. Furthermore, GLD’s prospectus is chalk full of weasel clauses and legal loopholes that allows the fund to get away without the full physical gold backing. One good example of this is the clause that states GLD has no right to audit subcustodial gold holdings. To this day, I have not heard of a single good reason for the existence of this audit loophole. I’ve also verified the following to be true and welcome everyone else to do so: "Did anyone try calling the GLD hotline at (866) 320 4053 in search of numerical details on GLD's insurance? The prospectus vaguely states "The Custodian maintains insurance with regard to its business on such terms and conditions as it considers appropriate which does not cover the full amount of gold held in custody."

 State Dept. memo explains U.S. policy to drive gold out of financial system
 - Chris Powell - GATA
America harbours some of the dumbest felons on the planet who leave one smoking gun after another behind at crime scenes. That the u.s. wanted to obliterate GOLD out of the Financial System is just one of thousands. Reason for the above is that they don't have any GOLD to back their own system up with so they proceeded to pull the rest of the world down with them. As far as Fort Knox is concerned there is nothing to see now let's move on. Finally ,I wish those idiots that compile the World Bullion List would desist on listing the vile americans as having 8000 tons. If one could weigh LIES then I suppose they have 8000 tons of LIES locked up in Fort Knox.

Government run [anything] = poorly run [anything].
For example,
Healthcare = VA
Finance = Fed has devalued the currency by 98%, and caused or worsened two depressions.
Postal = ha ha ha. The phrase, "Going Postal" didn't come from nowhere. Horrible service and generally unhappy employees.

People working for government agencies have no skin in the game. There are no consequences for failure. So, you get horrible service, that costs a fortune, and still manages to lose money. The bailout mentality that has developed over the last 20 years has extended this into the private sector, resulting in Crony Capitalism, a.k.a. Fascism. Obamacare was just the next step in the socialization of health care. It has been going on for decades.

I've read a lot of negatives about healthcare in the UK. A government can for a while deliver free healthcare that seems good...until, like Thatcher said, governments run out of other's people's money. And it is other people that government's rob via taxation to pay for any freebie. It buys votes. It's usually a slow decline in the standard of living as private enterprise gradually wilts and dies...as is happening now in Venezuela.

Incidentally, government control of the economy via forced taxation if unchecked metastasizes into the cancer of Fascism...what both our nations fought against.

Answer To :Jim C. - 5/5/2017 at 9:31 PM GMT
Kunstler's gripe about US healthcare is deceiving. He may have mentioned Denninger - more of a free market advocate - but his real goal is a tighter grip on individuals by Government. He isn't against Govt control of heathcare...he just wants it enforced better...more of an iron hand approach.

All of Kunstler's positions confirm this: he's railed against technology, and advocated for govt to eliminate private automobiles; he would herd everyone onto mass transit. Just last week, a gang of teens, about 50 or more, swarmed a BART train in San Francisco and beat and robbed passengers. For years Kunstler pushed the myth of peak oil, the depletion of oil, the coming descent into darkness and the need to flee back into the 18th century. You don't hear Kunstler speak of peak oil any longer. Each year seems to bring announcements of new oil deposit discoveries.

The solution to Healthcare in America is not a complex one. It does not need a police state to enforce. Healthcare is simply an individual responsibility, and govt has NO business in that area.

All I think about this stock & USD bubbling is that "The Market" usually reacts late. The public judgment about economic progress always lagging. Early awakening of reality in a global scope can cause bankruptcy in shorter time but might proof right in long term scope. Right now I am stuck deeply in gold miners stocks and by shorting TSLA. I realized too late that I have done that much too early. But we shall wait and see if the Trump government will be able to ease up US economy. Ronald Reagan's gov did it but the situation was not unlike nowadays.

Kunstler's gripe about US healthcare is deceiving. He may have mentioned Denninger - more of a free market advocate - but his real goal is a tighter grip on individuals by Government. He isn't against Govt control of heathcare...he just wants it enforced better...more of an iron hand approach. All of Kunstler's positions confirm this: he's railed against technology, and advocated for govt to eliminate private automobiles; he would herd everyone onto mass transit. Just last week, a gang of teens, about 50 or more, swarmed a BART train in San Francisco and beat and robbed passengers. For years Kunstler pushed the myth of peak oil, the depletion of oil, the coming descent into darkness and the need to flee back into the 18th century. You don't hear Kunstler speak of peak oil any longer. Each year seems to bring announcements of new oil deposit discoveries. The solution to Healthcare in America is not a complex one. It does not need a police state to enforce. Healthcare is simply an individual responsibility, and govt has NO business in that area.

 Silver Bullion On Sale After 10.6 Fall In Two Weeks
 - Mark O'Byrne - gold.ie
Good advice in this article - ignore the silver 'fix' price - it is certainly artificial; look at the large premiums on actual silver scrap coins, for example, on internet auction sites. There is a real market out there, outside of the 'fix', which, as the author points out, works to the advantage of the buyers of real metal, as opposed to speculative paper trades.

 EU Buffoonery: Brexit Divorce Bill Upped to €100 Billion
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
UK has been running a trade deficit for years with the EU - around £60 billion per year (source: Office of National Statistics). Analogy: If you were in a casino and the croupier lent you a few chips to get your losses back, you could meet a couple of large guys in tuxedos at the door who would say you aren't going anywhere, pal, until you can find a friend to pay your tab. No different with the EU. The UK is attempting to welsh on it's debt - after buying goods with an overpriced Sterling for years - and the agreement John Major the PM signed in the Maastricht Treaty, (the 'opt-out' clause that expired in March 2017) now means that it will be un-economic for EU merchants to trade with the UK anymore, unless the pound is devalued to bring it into line with the Euro. Oh dear! The 'Brexiteers' get the blame from the 'Remainers' - and Government gets off scott free.

 The Fed Has Bankrupted the US In Order to Create Another Bubble
 - Phoenix Capital - Gains Pains & Capital
All I think about this stock & USD bubbling is that "The Market" usually reacts late. The public judgment about economic progress always lagging. Early awakening of reality in a global scope can cause bankruptcy in shorter time but might proof right in long term scope. Right now I am stuck deeply in gold miners stocks and by shorting TSLA. I realized too late that I have done that much too early. But we shall wait and see if the Trump government will be able to ease up US economy. Ronald Reagan's gov did it but the situation was not unlike nowadays. Djoni S. Sidik, Indonesia
