When humans try to do it all using their own strength and 'wisdom', we screw up royally. Let us remember that we have a powerful God and humbly turn to Him in prayer.

 The CFTC’s Summer Camp Letter
 - Theodore Butler - Butler Research
I have followed the daily and intra-day prices of silver for most of the last 10 years. I am not a speculator, but a small investor interested in maintaining a good part of my retirement money in precious metals, as I have for over 20 years. Given the current volatility of world stock markets, that seems like a reasonable and historically valid diversification. It has been obvious to me that even the intra-day prices have been manipulated for a long time. So why are large investment entities so interested in limiting the rise of an alternative investment? I don't see the U.S. selling its gold, nor even a country such as Italy, which has the third largest gold reserves. Any commodity which increases in price, increases the overall wealth of the population as a whole. Many younger investors may not be aware that the biggest manipulators of silver were the Hunt Brothers, who tried, and for a while succeeded, in cornering the market for silver. They drove the price of silver up to about $50.00 an ounce in January 1980, at which point they supposed owned about one third of the world supply of silver. At that point the COMEX acted, and changed the rules regarding leverage for purchases of commodities, causing the silver price to collapse. Silver price 1980: $50.00. Silver price now (after 39 years of inflation) $15.00.

I would like to thank you for turning a hundred years of American history into a succinct and subjective account of what has gone wrong in this country and the world. There is no going back, but hopefully we can find some manner of reasonable accommodation with the world as it is. By the way, I also had a Davy Crockett hat.

When a country like the USA does all the things that third world countries do, then by default it ends up in the third world.

Being a "working stiff" I didn't start to notice The Turn until Foley and the Democrats would never stand up to Regan and Voodoo Economics. It was as if the whole world had turned on Labor, yet the whole world expected Labor to continue working just as hard doing the GREAT things Labor had always done. The BASE of the system came under attack, and remains under attack to this day. Imagine that: turning on, attacking, destroying the pillars that hold up the entire structure. Labor is now decimated; laying in ruins. Yes James, there was a turning.

I wonder where history will put the collapse. Like a recession, the collapse of a society is only apparent long after it is underway. Some, such as yourself, Rand and Schiff, have been pointing out the eminent or inevitable for quite some time. When will we recognize that we are in the third section of Atlas Shrugged? September 2nd is a strong contender.

 Trump’s Last Stand
 - Peter Schiff - Euro Pacific Capital
I don't think China will be too worried about tariffs . They are getting on with business in the silk road with about 100 countries so they will just give the USA the big 2 fingered salute.

I assume that Mr Butler has accumulated stacks of silver bars at artificially low prices and at some time in the future he will sell all his silver for artificially high priced dollars and then we can all yell whoopee...no more over lengthy missives from Butler about...exactly nothing

 Prelude to a Fiasco  (4)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
James, you seem to have overlooked a few thousand Front Line Concerns going on in America. There's the 23 Democratic Contenders, the Wars in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen ~ the contentious Anti-American activities of Bolton and Pompeo ~ the upcoming events involving Julian Assange, and the Stock Market troubles involving a Trade War with China ~ to name just a few. So many distractions ! ! No one cares, and no one has EVER cared about Russia, Russia, Russia. It's ALWAYS been a bullsh*t story. Mueller is only a Connection to a Bullsh*t Story. Mueller is surrounded by an Endless Firewall of BIG Money. We all know The Truth NEVER gets out (mainstream) in America; and it won't this time either. I know you're right about the truth on this one; but the outcome of this process is pre-determined. Otherwise Mueller would never have opened his mouth.

The whole Russia-Gate fiasco may in the end turn out to be the best gift the Demos could have given Mr. Trump. Enabling him to fulfill his #1 campaign promise to drain the swamp.

 Jim Cook Interviews Ted Butler: JPM, Silver Investors More
 - Theodore Butler - Butler Research
850 ounces ?? that's nothing. typo As for manipulation..read keith weiner. Silver still in downtrend that's been going for 8 years so I have no idea why TB cannot see that and therefore should have been short making lots of dough and could buy more bars with the profits when the trend changes. Given his record nobody should listen to anything he says. So we have a double bottom almost a triple ??? There is plenty of time if you are a fan of silver to wait till that trend is obviously changed e.g. a close above 20 or even 50 day moving average
