When There are No Consequences for Anything  (7)
Mr. Kunstler is absolutely spot on, I've been asking these same questions now for years. We are overrun with corruption and nobody seems to care. The media is in bed with the leftist and the lawbreakers, and will repeat whatever lie they hear that is damaging to the President. We are as divided as we have ever been as a country, and if we don't get control of this soon there will be blood in the streets--all ...

Excellent snippet of history, thank you!

Death Penalty for Debasing Currency: US Coinage Act of 1792  (8)
I wonder if this Act was addressed by the creation of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913?

If not, I wonder if we can find some Statesmen in Washington that would fight to eliminate this evil from our existence...but then hope springs eternal.

First Majestic Silver CEO Keith Neumeyer Talks About The End Of The Silver Manipulation  (2)
I have been following the price of silver for well over 10 years, and believe that it has systematically been manipulated, for whatever reason. So, while I believe it has been manipulated, I will believe the demise of the current system of LBMA, and CME/COMEX when I see it. Not meaning to be cynical, but there are BILLIONS on the line if silver is able to trade openly without the manipulators depressing the pr...

Body Armor: Because If You’re Shooting Down Range, You Can Bet Someone’s Shooting Back At You  (21)
One thing about body armor--it's heavy, and it's HOT. While I am a strong proponent of it (and I need to buy some upgraded plates), just know that you WILL sweat profusely wearing it, especially if it's a relatively warm day.

How the Fed Operates — And Why It's a Problem  (2)
In a nutshell, the Fed facilitates the theft of the value of the dollar, as they can control the increase in supply which at the same time inverts the value of the same dollar. They've now taken 99+% of the original value of the dollar by this method, and then in turn obfuscate about the source of inflation as if it was some nebulous and undefined entity that is caused by something outside of their control. A...

Climate Promotion: Seriously Failing  (8)
The global realization of the scam of AGW (or "Climate change", or whatever it's called nowadays) cannot happen soon enough. I've been speaking for years about "follow the money" and pointing out the hypocrisy, the lies, and the flawed analyses to no avail to the most strident followers. I have stated that this is as much a religion as any ever devised, with the same emphasis of some that all we "non believers...

Learning to Prosper in Silver - Jeff Nielson  (6)
How long can this manipulation continue before people figure it out and the market explodes? I've been shocked that it has lasted as long as it has.

John Maynard Keynes, Immoralist  (14)
Excellent article, great work to pull back the curtain on the sordid history of Keynes and the globalists that continues to this day. Outstanding work, sir.

Why Fiat Money Manipulation Can Never Produce Prosperity  (2)
While I don't disagree with your premise on a Macro level, on a micro level it is errant. Banksters have been proving for well over 100 years that fiat currency can enrich those that control it, which was exactly the point for its creation to begin with. The enrichment is not immediate, but steady and precise, to the point that what is left are the masses who have been steadily robbed without most of them unde...

 Nelson Hultberg -
The New Totalitarianism  (10)
Excellent essay, sir! I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment, essentially repealing the Federal Reserve Act and the 16th Amendment.

I would only add the 17th Amendment as well, the direct election of Senators. Senators were intended to be elected by the respective state legislatures, so as to represent the interests of the State; while the Representatives in Congress were to represent the inter...

 Nelson Hultberg -
The New Totalitarianism  (10)
I think you've entirely missed the point of the author--or you simply didn't read the essay. The truth is, you're right that the governments do not serve the people; however, you've missed the point of the author that governments have absolutely created a large subservient class of persons who are happy in their subservience to government (and big business, with our crony capitalist society for that matter) tha...

The Big Picture  (5)
Very interesting perspective, and on target. Stock buybacks add no value to the company overall, and only work to raise the stock price. The board of directors must approve something like this, but very often they are also large shareholders and stand to gain in the higher resulting stock price, for as we all know a fixed numerator divided by a smaller denominator results in a higher value. I've never seen an...

No Increase in Wealth Inequality for Top 1 Since 1960  (6)

So I ask you: How best to address this disparate situation? Shall we say that those at the top 0.1%, or 1%, or even 10% should be willing to give up their income to help others out? Shall we have the government address this situation and impose fines or additional taxes? How about having the government simply take the wealth from those top % persons (whether top 10%, 1%, or what have you), ...

The Roman Emperors of today  (6)
Ms. Skoyles, thank you for an excellent article and analysis! As is unfortunately inferred from the analysis, the approaching economic collapse is far more rapid than most would expect, and I fear that we have no way to avert it.

Even the Money Printers Are Buying Gold  (3)
Actually, I know a company that could do it for a lot less than renting a couple of C130's (though it still wouldn't be cheap), and they're experienced in moving precious metals, though typically in much smaller quantities. Oh, and you're right, it comes out to about 43,000 pounds if my math is correct.

The Great Gold Deception and Misdirection  (60)
Mr. Dougherty thank you for this article. It is indeed greed that drives the manipulation as you describe, but I would also add hubris. We're at a point in history where not only the bankers, but the politicians feel that they can do anything they wish, then flaunt it to the masses-- reminding me of my history of the French Revolution and "Let them eat cake". While I pray we're not coming to that point, I fea...

"Libertarian Turned Keynesian" Responds  (9)
This is more of the same type of faulty logic that I hear espoused by those who apparently cannot think critically (and are typically promoted by the media as "economic experts")--Government can create GDP "out of thin air" just by printing pieces of paper (or some variation thereof). It's inherently ridiculous, and anyone with a modicum of mental agility or intellect should be able to shred the argument. Unfo...

The CFTC Silver Investigation  (13)
Excellent article, thank you!!

Like you, I think I and most of the rest of the world that knows of this scandal is disappointed (to say the least) that those in power will turn a blind eye to this kind of a blatant criminal act. It is disheartening.

Inflation Is Here, and It Is Going to Get Worse  (4)
Mr. Shostak, thank you for an excellent article. I've been trying to explain this same thing to others for some time, not nearly as eloquent and well researched as you have done here.
