Fake News, Mass Hysteria, And Induced Insanity

The "fake news" is that we've never been healthier, healthcare costs are under control and our economy has fully "recovered."

We've heard a lot about "fake news" from those whose master narratives are threatened by alternative sources and analyses. We've heard less about the master narratives being threatened: the fomenting of mass hysteria, which turns the populace into an easily manipulated and managed herd, and induced insanity, a longer-term marketing-based narrative that causes the populace to ignore the self-destructive consequences of accepting the fad/ ideology/ mindset being pushed as "good" and "normal."

In terms of "fake news," it's hard to beat the mainstream media and its handlers' attempts to whip up mass hysteria via unsubstantiated claims that Russian hackers working for Putin deprived Hillary of the presidency. The campaign to spark mass hysteria was launched with great precision, unleashing the overwhelming forces of endless repetition (the marketer's favorite tool) and appeals to national security authorities: The C.I.A., F.B.I, and all the other security agencies purportedly concur that Russia "hacked" (whatever that means) the U.S. election.

The intent of the campaign was painfully obvious: by wheeling out the big guns of authority without any actual evidence, the campaign's designers hoped the public would automatically assume the bizarre, outlandish claim must be "true," even though no evidence was submitted to substantiate this fact-free claim, and respond as planned, i.e. willingly join a mass hysteria herd in favor of discrediting the U.S.election results.


Did the "hackers" change the election results issued by voting machines? Did they "hack" the election totals? Wouldn't there be tell-tale forensic evidence of such tampering? How else could "hackers" change the election other than by changing votes and vote totals?

Or was the media campaign to generate mass hysteria based on nothing but purposefully vague and unsubstantiated claims of Russia-inspired "fake news" that undermined the election by questioning the mainstream media's biased coverage of the presidential campaign?

"Fake news" is of course the staple of marketing products that end up killing the unwary consumers who buy the hype. The classic example is the cigarette/ tobacco industry, which ran adverts for decades proclaiming absurdities such as the health benefits of smoking (other than dying a horrible, needless death), the "fact" that doctors preferred one brand of cigarette over the other brands, and so on.

The industry famously went to truly monumental lengths to hide the facts about the destructive consequences of smoking from the public, and aggressively attacked any evidence that smoking was remarkably unhealthy as "unscientific," i.e. beating back the truth with The Big Lie.

That a form of consumption that killed the consumers was unquestionably accepted not just as "normal" but as cool/hip for decades illustrates the staying power of induced insanity. Mass hysteria eventually wears off, as it overloads the emotional circuitry of the target audience; humans soon become desensitized to the triggers used to generate mass hysteria, and it takes heavier and heavier doses of propaganda to maintain the feverishly herd-inducing hysteria.

Eventually, the populace habituates to the stimulus and becomes exhausted by the hysteria.

Induced Insanity, on the other hand, is not an emotional state--it is a state of mind and a state of perception that filters and interprets inputs to produce the desired output-- an acceptance of insanity as "normal" and "good."

Youtuber Crushes 1 Kilo Gold Bar Worth $40k, Hilarity Ensues


A Youtuber decided to see what happens when a 1 kilo gold bar is crushed with a hydraulic press.

What followed was priceless…

It appears that we have underestimated just how ignorant the general public remains about the intrinsic value of gold. Some of the best reactions include:

  • This is illegal…you can’t destroy money.
  • This physically pained me. $40,000…
  • $40,000. I would rather give it to charity…
  • He is wasting GOLD!!!!
  • Who the f*** wastes a $40 grand block of gold like this?! Why waste money?!

Breaking News on the War on Cash: Now Spain

In other words, Spain is going to make cash transactions even more difficult. As of presstime, from what we can tell, this has yet to be reported anywhere in English media except here now at TDV.

As you can see, the chaos is increasing. Combine cash bans with attacks on fake news (more on that tomorrow), and you end up disturbing a significant amount of people as we wrote here recently.

This amounts to a trend of course, of the sort we’ve been analyzing for several years now. We’ve predicted increased social chaos throughout the West and beyond because globalism is not built by votes but by violence and widespread disaffection that allows globalist “solutions” to be rammed home.

I expect “cash banning” to be speeded up along with selected attacks on the alternative media – as part of a larger effort to create widespread social dissension. People believe attacks on cash and “news” are what they seem to be on the surface. They are not. They are part of a much deeper strategy that involves additional globalism.

We’ve expected just these sorts of actions and have profited from them for the past several years along with our newsletter subscribers. We await more of the same.

Currently, violence spawned by this anti-cash trend can be seen in such countries as Uruguay and India where cash banning on large bills has ignited significant social chaos already. India is in the throes of riots while Uruguay has been hit with a nationwide strike aimed in part at derailing a mandate that all employers must pay employees electronically via a bank account, starting as soon as March.

You won’t read much about the results of cash banning because the mainstream media won’t cover it, but the moves are doing their job, which is in part to inflict maximum social damage and make people aware that nothing they think they control is really theirs.

The more easily absorbed reason for cash bans has to do with negative interest rates. People prefer to hold cash instead of receiving bank bills and thus cash must be banned. Alternatively, nations are said to require more efficient tax collection that can only be generated if people cannot hold cash.

These are good reasons – from government’s’ point of view – to try to ban cash. But as I mentioned above, the larger reason has to do with riling up tax slaves. The more chaos the better …

Spain is already splitting into several pieces because of its endless depression which has resulted in over 50 percent of its youth being unemployed. The Catalans are ready to secede and like the Basques are foes of Spain’s central government and the Castilians that partially run it.

Back in 2012, Spain banned large euro cash transactions – anything over $2500 as a matter of fact. Now with a further squeeze that apparently may include various VAT changes as well, the trap is primed once again. Such aberrant moves can bring a kind of civil war to Spain sooner rather than later.

There hasn’t been any violence in Australia so far as we know, though Citicorp has now announced it won’t handle cash at its branches there.

Again, this is a trend we expect to continue and expand. It’s not really about cash (or fake news) so much as shaking people’s confidence in their societies. The kind of globalism our overseers want is not going to be built from peaceful treaties, or not to begin with. There’s going to be blood.

Please protect yourself. Bitcoin, gold and silver are all viable alternatives as the chaos builds, and we’ve been suggesting them for years, unlike many other publications including alternative publications that continue to disregard cryptocurrencies as valid stores of value.

Fearmongering Propaganda Is Immensely Profitable and Distracting

Let’s start by asking: if Trump had lost and his supporters had angrily taken to the streets, destroying private property and threatening police officers while proclaiming “not my president,” would the mainstream media have characterized the rioters differently than it has the pro-Clinton rioters?

Any fair-minded observer knows the answer is yes: the CNN/MSM would have lambasted the “rioting deplorables” as “what’s wrong with America.”

Substitution is a useful tool to expose bias. How come the CNN/mainstream corporate misn’t edia declaring the pro-Clinton rioters “deplorables”?

This tells us something else is going on here. I want to explain what’s really going on, but first we need to run a simple experiment:

Turn off CNN, PBS, CBS et al., your Twitter and Facebook feeds, etc. for seven days, and live solely in the media-free real world for a week. If you’re truly interested in understanding what’s really going on in America, then come back in a week and read the rest of the essay.

Global Interest In Silver Investment Expands As South Africa Adds New Silver Krugerrand

As interest in silver investment expands throughout the world, the South African Mint will produce its first 1 oz Silver Krugerrand, to be released this November. This is quite remarkable as the South African Mint has been producing Gold Krugerrands since 1967.

Matter-a-fact, the South African Mint has produced over 50 million oz of Gold Krugerrands over the past 49 years. It is the largest Official Gold coin producer in the world. The U.S. Mint’s Gold Eagle comes in second with over 22 million oz produced since the program started in 1987.

With the 50 year anniversary of the minting of the Gold Krugerrand in 2017, the South African Government will also release a new 1 oz Platinum Krugerrand along with its new silver coin. They also plan on adding some addition sizes of the Gold Krugerrand, such as a 1/20th, 1/50th oz variants as well as a 5 oz coin.

However, the big deal for the silver investor will be the new 1 oz Silver Krugerrand:



The South African Mint plans on releasing 500,000 of the 1 oz 2017 Silver Krugerrand next year, along with 15,000 proofs. I imagine they plan to see how successful the initial coin sales of the Silver Krugerrand will be before they revise their annual mintage figures.

Russia not behind Clinton leaks – Assange interview with John Pilger


In an exclusive interview with renowned filmmaker John Pilger and his Darmouth Films company, Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange has responded to claims that Russia is behind recent Wikileaks revelations about Hillary Clinton, adding that he feels "sorry" for the U.S. presidential candidate. RT's Polly Boiko has more.

Clinton & ISIS funded by same money - Assange interview with John Pilger


The conversation then turns to the imminent presidential election: Pilger questioned Assange over increasingly frequent accusations from the Clinton camp, and Western media, that WikiLeaks is looking to swing next week’s US presidential election in favor of Donald Trump – perhaps at Russia’s behest.

However, just as he did last week, Assange again dismissed the prospect of Trump, who is almost tied in the polls, winning as unlikely, and not necessarily due to his standing with the electorate.

“My analysis is that Trump would not be permitted to win. Why do I say that? Because he has had every establishment off his side. Trump does not have one establishment, maybe with the exception of the Evangelicals, if you can call them an establishment,” said Assange. “Banks, intelligence, arms companies, foreign money, etc. are all united behind Hillary Clinton. And the media as well. Media owners, and the journalists themselves."

He is right, but the same was said about Brexit.

Alasdair MacLeod - The Case for $11,000 GOLD



Alasdair MacLeod joins Silver Doctors to reveal banks are increasing their lending of money. If more money is lent, there will be more money in the system, causing price inflation.
Will the Fed raise interest rates to prevent this inflation?

MacLeod says the Fed is too worried about deflation to make a significant rate hike.

While the U.S. dollar has shown strength against other currencies, it has been weak with respect to commodities, MacLeod points out.

When it comes to precious metals, MacLeod says gold will continue to rise to account for the expansion of the paper currency supply. Based on how much the dollar has been inflated, MacLeod calculates gold should rise to $4,000/oz – $11,000/oz.

MacLeod predicts the correction in the precious metals is over. He sees gold testing its all-time highs in 2017, and silver breaking through into the $30 range.

Prominent Democrat Connected To Clintons Donated $675,000 To Campaign Of Deputy FBI Director's Wife


The latest allegation of potential impropriety and conflict of interest involving the Democratic Party and the FBI, which over the summer famously cleared Hillary Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing as relates to her personal email server, comes not from a Podesta email or a Wikileaks disclosure, but the WSJ which overnight reported that the political organization of Virginia Govenor Terry McAuliffe, an influential Democrat with longstanding ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an official at the Federal Bureau of Investigation who later helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s email use.

Campaign finance records show Mr. McAuliffe’s political-action committee donated $467,500 to the 2015 state Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, who is married to Andrew McCabe, now the deputy director of the FBI.

McAuliffe was prominently featured here most recently for his August decision to restore the voting rights of some 13,000 West Virginia ex-felons, an effort he was expected to continue until the voting rights for all 200,000 ex-criminals have been restored.

The WSJ adds that the Virginia Democratic Party, over which Mr. McAuliffe exerts considerable control, donated an additional $207,788 worth of support to Dr. McCabe’s campaign in the form of mailers, according to the records. That adds up to slightly more than $675,000 to her candidacy from entities either directly under Mr. McAuliffe’s control or strongly influenced by him. The figure represents more than a third of all the campaign funds Dr. McCabe raised in the effort.

Despite the boost in funding, after McAuliffe and other state party leaders recruited Dr. McCabe to run, she lost the election to incumbent Republican Dick Black.

A spokesman for the governor said he “supported Jill McCabe because he believed she would be a good state senator. This is a customary practice for Virginia governors… Any insinuation that his support was tied to anything other than his desire to elect candidates who would help pass his agenda is ridiculous.”

Among political candidates that year, Dr. McCabe was the third-largest recipient of funds from Common Good VA, the governor’s PAC, according to campaign finance records. Dan Gecker received $781,500 from the PAC and $214,456 from the state party for a campaign that raised $2.9 million, according to records; and Jeremy McPike received $803,500 from the PAC and $535,162 from the state party, raising more $3.8 million that year for his candidacy.

Seeking to clear away any speculation of impropriety and conflicts of interest , the FBI said in a statement that during his wife’s campaign Mr. McCabe “played no role, attended no events, and did not participate in fundraising or support of any kind. Months after the completion of her campaign, then-Associate Deputy Director McCabe was promoted to Deputy, where, in that position, he assumed for the first time, an oversight role in the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails.”

FBI officials said that after that meeting with the governor in Richmond on March 7, Mr. McCabe sought ethics advice from the bureau and followed it, avoiding involvement with public corruption cases in Virginia, and avoiding any campaign activity or events.

Mr. McCabe’s supervision of the Clinton email case in 2016 wasn’t seen as a conflict or an ethics issue because his wife’s campaign was over by then and Mr. McAuliffe wasn’t part of the email probe, officials said.

Of course, despite the prompt denial that this fund transfer was not out of the ordinary, the money was not refunded and will serve as the latest suggestion that "pay-to-play" is alive and well, and involves not just the judicial branch, but also the supposedly impartial FBI.

As the WSJ also notes, McCabe is a longtime FBI official who focused much of his career on terrorism. His wife is a hospital physician who campaigned in northern Virginia, where the couple live with their children. The 2015 Virginia State senate race was Dr. McCabe’s first run for office and her campaign spent $1.8 million. The race was part of Mr. McAuliffe’s failed effort to win a Democratic majority in the Virginia legislature, which would have given him significantly more sway in Richmond, the state capital.

Some more details:

Mr. McAuliffe has been a central figure in the Clintons’ political careers for decades. In the 1990s, he was Bill Clinton’s chief fundraiser and he remains one of the couple’s closest allies and public boosters. Mrs. Clinton appeared with him in northern Virginia in 2015 as he sought to increase the number of Democrats in the state legislature.
Dr. McCabe announced her candidacy in March 2015, the same month it was revealed that Mrs. Clinton had used a private server as secretary of state to send and receive government emails, a disclosure that prompted the FBI investigation.

At the time the Clinton probe was launched in July 2015, McCabe was running the FBI’s Washington, D.C., field office, which provided personnel and resources to the Clinton email probe.

The rabbit hole gets deeper: "That investigation examined whether Mrs. Clinton’s use of private email may have compromised national security by transmitting classified information in an insecure system. A review of Mrs. Clinton’s emails concluded that 110 messages contained classified information. Mrs. Clinton has said she made a mistake but that she never sent or received messages that were marked classified." We now know that also was incorrect.

At the end of July 2015, Mr. McCabe was promoted to FBI headquarters and assumed the No. 3 position at the agency. In February 2016, he became FBI Director James Comey’s second-in-command. As deputy director, Mr. McCabe was part of the executive leadership team overseeing the Clinton email investigation, though FBI officials say any final decisions on that probe were made by Mr. Comey, who served as a high-ranking Justice Department official in the administration of George W. Bush.

The paper concludes that "it was unclear the extent to which Mr. McCabe may have recused himself from discussions involving Mr. McAuliffe. When Mr. McCabe’s wife began her campaign, he shied away from involvement in Virginia public corruption cases, according to officials." He was, however, instrument in supervising Hillary's investigation the subsequently clearing her.

The punchline: "once the campaign was over, officials said, Mr. McCabe and FBI officials felt the potential conflict-of-interest issues ended."

Diagnosis of Gold Correction: Normal

Murphy’s Law, applied to gold and silver: the price will fall right after you buy.

New GoldSilver Law: it doesn’t matter. Prices will be a lot higher in a couple years (and you should focus on how many ounces you own anyway).

As most of you know, gold and silver have been on a tear this year. Gold hit $1,363.75 (based on London PM fix) on August 2. But yesterday it fell to $1,253.45, what amounts to an 8.1% pullback.

As you’re about to see, this decline is completely normal. That’s not me saying so; that’s what history shows.

I have some data on corrections I want to share with you. The reason I’m sharing it is because I want us all to be prepared for what’s ahead…

The following charts look at the size and frequency of corrections during gold’s two biggest bull markets in modern history. First up is the 2001-2011 run. Look how many corrections there were and how big some of them got. I added our current pullback so you can put it in perspective.


In the bull market that saw the gold price rise a total of 645%, there were 19 corrections of 6% or more. Ten were in double digits.

The average of all those corrections was 12%. That means our current pullback is, so far, relatively minor by comparison.

Corrections are normal even during manias. Here's a chart of the pullbacks that occurred during the final two years of the 1970s parabolic advance. Notice not just the big drops but how quickly they occurred.



During the final phase of the gold mania—at a time when the price rose 392% in just 24 months—there were seven big pullbacks. The average was a 10.1% decline every three and a half months. And they were all very sharp—four lasted less than ten trading days, and all were over in less than a month.

So, in the two biggest gold advances in modern history, price corrections, even big ones, were completely normal.

This information gives us power…

There are three distinct facts we can take away from this data. If you tend to worry when the gold price falls, you may find the following points useful as we progress through what Mike and I are convinced will be a gold advance of historic proportions…

#1. We will never say goodbye to corrections.

History shows that volatility, both up and down, is normal during bull markets, even manias. What this means is that while we can’t predict when they’ll occur, we know going in that they’re gonna happen. So before we exit this sector, understand that we will see some big and sharp corrections. Prepare your emotions accordingly.

#2. Focus on the big picture.

When the gold price declines in a bull market, history shows it’s almost always higher three months later. The only time this didn’t happen in the 2001-2011 period was during the 2008 financial crisis—but even then the price ended up more than doubling within two years. In the 1976 to 1980 mania, gold wasalways higher three months later.

In other words, daily and even monthly fluctuations are nothing to fret over. Viewed on a long-term basis, corrections are nothing more than one step down before the next two steps up. This fact reminds us to keep the big picture in mind.

#3: Corrections are buying opportunities.

If you don’t have as much gold and silver as you need, every pullback should be viewed as your chance to buy them on sale. It’s an automatic discount on what you want to buy anyway.

It’s not just gold bugs saying this…
Francisco Blanch, head of global commodities and derivatives research at Bank of America Merrill Lynch: “Investors should use the recent drop in gold prices as a buying opportunity… once the US central bank decides to raise interest rates, potentially causing equities to sell off and the dollar to rally, investors will see gold prices stabilize and eventually trend higher.”
Goldman Sachs analysts Jeffrey Currie and Max Layton: “We would view a gold sell-off below $1,250 as a strategic buying opportunity, given that substantial downside risks to global growth remain, and given that the market is likely to remain concerned about the ability of monetary policy to respond to any potential shocks to growth.”
Joni Teves, UBS strategist: “We think the recent price correction and sizeable decline in positioning improves the risk-reward for gold, allowing those who are looking to build longer-term gold exposure to build positions at better levels.”
Chris Gaffney, president of World Markets at EverBank: “the recent drop is overdone… Several factors can put a floor under gold in the short term, including increased tensions in Syria, the end of cooperation between Russia and the US, Brexit, and political uncertainty in the US.”
Ross Norman, chief executive officer at Sharps Pixley: “It is clear to us that the rationale for buying is more powerful than any time in living memory.” That last quote is my favorite.

Mike Maloney agrees, but takes it one step further… as he shows with sharp clarity in Episode 7 of the Hidden Secrets of Money, what is almost certainly ahead promises to be not just the greatest crisis in history but also the greatest wealth transfer. But only if you own physical gold and silver.

The Ultimate Question to Ask
So, does that mean we should buy now? What if the correction isn’t over?

Instead of focusing solely on price, I think this is a better question to ask:
Do you have enough ounces to withstand the fallout if Mike is right about what’s coming?Focus on how you and your family would be impacted in a crisis, and how you will deal with it. Any reasonable assessment of global financial affairs points to the need to have a lot of bullion at this point in history.

If even just a portion of Mike’s predictions come true, worrying over a few dollars for gold or a few cents for silver will be meaningless and long forgotten.

Buy enough gold and silver so that your fort is ready for all arrows—deflation, inflation, economic recession or depression, central bank blunders, government interference, war, helicopter money, a crashing currency, a monetary reset, capital controls, and any other scenario that could wipe out you and your family’s wealth.

Max Hyprocrisy - Bill Clinton Bashes Obamacare As The Craziest Thing In The World


In a staggering moment of honesty caught on tape, former President Bill Clinton admits to a group of voters in Michigan that Obamacare is a complete disaster and is wreaking havoc on the middle-class and "small-business people." Per the video published by the NY Post, Clinton says that Obamacare is fine for those who are eligible for subsidies but admits that thathardworking "people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half and it’s the craziest thing in the world."

“You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care, and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half and it’s the craziest thing in the world.

On the other hand, the current system works fine if you’re eligible for Medicaid, if you’re a lower-income working person. If you’re already on Medicare or if you get enough subsidies on a modest income that you can afford your health care.

But the people getting killed in this deal are the small-business people and individuals who make just a little bit too much to get any of these subsidies."

Canadian Mint employee accused of smuggling $180K of gold in his rectum

An employee of the Royal Canadian Mint allegedly smuggled about $180,000 in gold from the fortress-like facility, possibly evading multiple levels of detection with a time-honoured prison trick.

Hiding the precious metal up his bum.

The case against Leston Lawrence, 35, of Barrhaven concluded in an Ottawa courtroom Tuesday. Justice Peter Doody reserved decision until Nov. 9 on a number of smuggling-for-cash charges, including theft, laundering the proceeds of crime, possession of stolen property and breach of trust.

The Uck! factor aside, the case was also an illuminating look at security measures inside the Mint, the building on Sussex Drive that produces hundreds of millions of gold coins annually for the federal Crown corporation.

“Appalling,” was the conclusion of defence lawyer Gary Barnes, who described the Crown’s case as an underwhelming collection of circumstantial evidence.


“This is the Royal Canadian Mint, your Honour, and one would think they should have the highest security measures imaginable,” Barnes said in his closing submission.

“And here the gold is left sitting around in open buckets.”

Indeed, it was not even the Mint that discovered the alleged theft but an alert bank teller.

Court was told that, on multiple occasions, Lawrence took small circular chunks of gold — a cookie-sized nugget called a “puck” — to Ottawa Gold Buyers in the Westgate Shopping Centre on Carling Avenue.

Typically, the pucks weighed about 210 grams, or 7.4 ounces, for which he was given cheques in the $6,800 range, depending on fluctuating gold prices, court heard. He then deposited the cheques at the Royal Bank in the same mall.

One day a teller became suspicious at the size and number of Ottawa Gold Buyers cheques being deposited and Lawrence’s request to wire money out of the country. She then noticed on his account profile that he worked at the Mint. The first red flag was up.

Bank security was alerted, then the RCMP, which began to investigate. Eventually, a search warrant was obtained and four Mint-style pucks were found in Lawrence’s safety deposit box, court heard.

Records revealed 18 pucks had been sold between Nov. 27, 2014 and March 12, 2015. Together with dozens of gold coins that were redeemed, the total value of the suspected theft was conservatively estimated at $179,015.

But the defence countered with a couple of important points. The Crown was not able to prove conclusively that the gold in Lawrence’s possession actually came from inside the Mint. It had no markings nor, apparently, had any gold been reported missing internally.

The Crown was able to show the pucks precisely fit the Mint’s custom “dipping spoon” made in-house — not available commercially — that is used to scoop molten gold during the production process.

Lawrence, who has since been terminated, was an operator in the refinery section. Among his duties was to scoop gold from buckets so it could be tested for purity, as the Mint prides itself on gold coins above the 99 per cent level.

The great mystery that went unanswered at trial, however, was this: how did the gold get out of the Mint?

Court was told Lawrence set off the metal detector at an exit from the “secure area” with more frequency than any other employee — save those with metal medical implants. When that happened, the procedure was to do a manual search with a hand-held wand, a search that he always passed.

(It was not uncommon for employees to set off the detector, court heard.)

Investigators also found a container of vaseline in his locker and the trial was presented with the prospect that a puck could be concealed in an anal cavity and not be detected by the wand. In preparation for these proceedings, in fact, a security employee actually tested the idea, Barnes said.

Lawrence did not take the stand — as is his legal right — and the Crown was not able to definitively establish how the gold pucks made their way out of the facility.

“We do have compelling evidence,” countered Crown attorney David Friesen, of someone “secreting (gold) on his person and taking it out of the Mint.”

Barnes implied there were many ways Lawrence could have legitimately obtained the gold — he could have bought the coins, for instance — and said he made no efforts to be devious with the gold buyers or the bank. Further, Barnes said, the Mint isn’t even sure a theft took place.

“In fact, I would submit the Mint doesn’t even know if anything is missing.”

In an emailed statement Tuesday evening, a Mint spokeswoman said several security measures had been upgraded, including high definition security cameras in all areas, improved ability to track, balance and reconcile precious metal, and the use of “trend analysis technology.”

History Says Gold And Silver Could Bubble Off The Charts

Mike has made a strong case for gold and silver being the next big asset bubbles. What does history show about his claim?

I looked at the biggest bubbles from history, because I wanted to see if there was historical precedence for the gold price exploding into a big bubble. If it has, it could do so again. If it never did, on the other hand, the claim might be harder to prove.

Here are the biggest financial bubbles from the modern era. Notice which one was the biggest.



The tech bubble, real estate bubble, and even an 18-year run-up in the S&P came nowhere close to the gold mania of the 1970s.

From its 1970 low to its January 1980 high, the gold price rose a total of 2,328%.

Even today’s US stock market—which has basically tripled since its 2009 low—pales in comparison to the gold bubble of the late ‘70s.

It’s really true: there’s no rush like a gold rush.

There were some big bubbles from long ago, too…

Jeff Berwick: Billionaire Elites Piling Into Gold


Jacob Rothschild, Stanley Druckenmiller, George Soros, along with his associate Crispin Odey, and other billionaire elitists are moving massively into gold. In his recent semi-annual address to RIT shareholders, Rothschild announced that they are reducing their stock and currency exposure and increasing their gold holdings.

Rothschild: ”The six months under review have seen central bankers continuing what is surely the greatest experiment in monetary policy in the history of the world. We are therefore in uncharted waters and it is impossible to predict the unintended consequences of very low interest rates, with some 30% of global government debt at negative yields, combined with quantitative easing on a massive scale.”

As Jeff Berwick points out, Rothshild is the best man to ‘predict’ what is going to happen because he and his elitist pals have created the timeline of catastrophes. This may be part of a scheme similar to in 1929 when central bankers created a huge bubble and then a massive crash so they could buy up a ton of assets at pennies on the dollar.

Jeff thinks this may be the most dangerous time in human history for capital. In this interview, he shares a wealth of advice on how and where to make sound investments. He is also putting on a TDV Internationalization and Investment Summit on February 24th 2017 which includes many known experts, and precedes the amazing Anarchapulco Conference in Acapulco, Mexico.

Bill Holter: Comparing This Gold Bull Market to Those of the Past Is Invalid


We are 7-8 years into a monetary experiment that has never been done before. In previous bull markets we weren’t looking at the potential end of the financial system as we know it. When central banks monetize, they destroy the currency. This is happening all over the world.

With world debt at least twice 2008 levels we are witnessing the dawn of a new system, and have been close to a collapse twice this year already. We now have central banks that are actually purchasing stocks. The monetization of stock markets is a factor in preventing the collapse.

Central Banks have already printed the money, now it’s just a matter of when will the panic out of money and into real assets happen. Velocity is at it’s lowest ever, and once investors- or even the average public is afraid of holding currency and moves their currency into ‘stuff’, hyperinflation will begin.

When the stock market turns and control is lost, there may be a period of 1-4 weeks where gold goes down. After that we will see capital moving back into gold, and we should see a massive influx of capital into the mining shares which will take out the 2011 highs- perhaps by multiples.

Why is Hillary Clinton Always Hiding Something?

One of the more disturbing revelations of this year’s U.S. presidential election, has been Hillary Clinton’s compulsive propensity to hide all sorts of things from the American public. While I appreciate one’s right to privacy as much as the next person, if you want to run for President of these United States, transparency and engagement with the public should be a top priority and requirement.

In this post, I want to highlight three troubling ways in which Hillary Clinton has been shamelessly and inexplicably hiding things from the public throughout her presidential run. The first instance is one that came up frequently during the Democratic primary. That is, transcripts of the extraordinarily high priced speeches she gave to numerous corporations, including multiple Wall Street banks that were at the center of the 2008/09 financial crisis…

Axel Merk: Making Sense Of The Impact Of Brexit


A very sleep-deprived Axel Merk joins us for this special edition podcast. Axel and his team have pulled late nights over the past few days following the Brexit vote results in real-time and the ensuing aftermath.

Axel, CEO and founder of the Merk Funds, is originally from Europe and one of the best experts we know on the currency markets, as well as monetary policy. In this podcast, he explains why he sees the Brexit as a sea-change in sentiment that will have far-reaching implications for Britain, Europe, and the rest of the world -- though it may take years before they are fully recognized and expressed. He expects the post-Brexit future to more market volatility, more populism as political stability weakens, more (ineffectual) fiscal spending to goose economic growth, and likely more armed conflict around the world.

We are rushing to make this special edition podcast available today given the hunger for informed perspective on this topic. As a result, the written transcript is not available yet -- we will post it here as soon as we received it back from our transcription agency.

Gold In UK Pounds Collapses 38% Versus Gold and 56% Versus Silver Year To Date

Gold in UK pounds neared its post-Brexit high overnight as sterling fell sharply on currency markets due to concerns about rising inflation as shown in data today and the outlook for the UK economy.

Gold is up nearly 4% in sterling terms in August and by a whopping 38% year to date. ‘Sterling silver’ has surged by even more this year and is now 56% higher in sterling terms year to date.



Gold in UK pounds – 10 Year (GoldCore.com)

‘Sterling gold’ rose or to put it more accurately, sterling fell to £1,045/oz in gold terms – not far from its post-Brexit low of £1,057/oz. The currency has lost more than 2 percent this month versus the dollar, the worst performance among major currencies and nearly 4% against gold.

Sterling hit a 6-1/2-year low against a basket of currencies and Monday’s close against the dollar of $1.2880 was the weakest since June 1985.

Gold in UK pounds surged 20% in the immediate aftermath of Brexit and after a needed correction, has consolidated and is moving higher again. ‘Sterling silver’ surged by even more and is now 56% higher in sterling terms this year showing silver’s currency hedging properties. Read More…

Marc Faber Tells Advisers to Invest 25% Of Investment Portfolios In Gold Bullion

The author of the Gloom, Boom & Doom Report, urged investment professionals at the CFA Institute Conference in Chicago that 25 percent of a portfolio should be allocated to gold given the very significant risks facing investors today.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Faber advised that gold is a “protection from a dangerous combination of tremendous government debt and massive bond-buying by central banks globally trying to fight off recession with near-zero interest rates.”

Faber said rates are so low that investors can’t make money in bonds so they keep buying stocks even though the prices are very inflated. Central banks want rising stock prices to make people feel wealthy and therefore spend their money, but the end result is income inequality and investor resentment, he said.

“Faber told the investment professionals gathered in Chicago that they shouldn’t be prejudiced against gold. Although the typical investment pro keeps less than 1 percent of his or her portfolio in gold, Faber suggests 25 percent. He sees it as protection from a dangerous combination of tremendous government debt and massive bond-buying by central banks globally trying to fight off recession with near-zero interest rates. Besides gold, Faber has invested in Asian real estate and some stocks and bonds.”

“It’s ludicrous to think that slashing rates will get people to spend.” When rates are low, he says, you feel insecure as savings earn nothing. So, “you save more” according to the Chicago Tribune.

Faber told us in a webinar in 2014 how he will “never sell his gold”, he buys “more every month” and he believes owning gold in vaults in Singapore “is safest.”

This May Be The Best Commodity Play of the Decade - CEO


The commodity space couldn’t be livelier, thinks one executive in both the gold and uranium sectors. Amir Adnani, CEO of Uranium Energy Corp., says commodity investors may be in the midst of the best opportunity in more than a decade in the resource space, especially when you look at the fundamentals of the uranium market. “We’re in a full bear market,” he told Kitco News at this year’s Freedom Fest. 

However, given that demand is rising and supply continues to contract, prices may be moving much higher. “Yes, the velocity of recovery has been disappointing but it’s heading in the right direction and that overhang will clear, and when it does, we’re going to see a market that can move very quickly.” Although Adnani, also founder of gold company Brazil Resources, doesn’t think gold is in a bull market like most investors do, he says it is coming. “I don’t think this is a bull market at all, I think this is a market that is recovering,” he said. 

For Adnani, the uncertainty surrounding markets and geopolitical events like the Brexit are helping build the case for gold. “Brexit in a way brought to the forefront what gold can do in all of our portfolios as insurance,” he said. “I think it was the ultimate reminder to investors about the role gold plays as insurance, alternative currency, as a store of value, and wealth preservation and creation.”

Criminal Bankers Threaten Entire World Economy


Attorney Helen Chaitman, who represents victims of the Bernie Madoff $65 billion fraud, contends the big banks are like mobsters. Chaitman says, “There is no question about it. They operate illegally because they can generate huge profits by doing so. They go from one crime to another, and when they get caught committing one crime, nobody gets fired. Nobody disgorges bonuses. They just take those people and put them in a new area where they haven’t yet been prosecuted.”

What will happen to the customers of the big banks in the next financial meltdown? Chaitman warns, “The customers will be destroyed, and if the banks still have enough money to buy Washington, the government will protect them just like it has since 2008.”

Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Helen Chaitman, author of the new book “JP Madoff.”

There's A 'Very Dangerous Situation' Taking Place In The Comex's Gold Vault

Something big is happening with gold. Over the past few years, if you bought and owned gold and gold mining shares, it’s been frustrating with gold prices in the doldrums of 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012. That’s four years of downside correction. But, that was then, and this is now. Let’s discuss what’s happening and nail down some serious opportunity…

Follow the money and right now money is moving into gold and select miners. In fact, there’s so much interest in “paper” gold that physical supply has utterly broken down. As in… crashed and about to burn in a roaring fireball!

This is critical. The amount of physical gold in storage in Comex versus the number of registered “owners” against each ounce is nuts.

From a few owners per ounce, it jumped to 542 by this March!

Just check out this remarkable chart:


Look at what’s happening. From the early 2000s to not long ago, the number of “owners” per ounce — people who bought a “paper” gold contract, supposedly backed by real metal at Comex — was basically flat, just a handful of claimants for each ounce.

Plus, there were literally millions of ounces of gold on deposit in Comex. There was gold in the vault, in other words. If you showed up with a contract, you could walk away with gold. That’s how markets ought to work.

Then starting in 2014 and trending to mid-2015, the number of registered “owners” moved strongly up, to about 100 per ounce, and then 300 per ounce. Note that this was also a period when Comex sold down significant amounts of physical inventory, from several million ounces in vaults to well under 1 million ounces.

Most of this gold moved out of the West (London, Zurich, New York) to the East (China, Russia, India, Middle East). It’s gone forever certainly from the West. It was nice while it lasted.

By late 2015 and now into 2016, registered “owners” against Comex gold spiked to a nosebleed level of 542-to-1. Thus if even one claimant shows up for an ounce of yellow metal, the cupboard will be bare — and there are 541 other claimants as well!

By comparison, your child has about 30 times better odds of applying and getting admitted to Harvard, Yale AND Stanford than does a Comex contract holder have of walking away with one ounce of gold. Good luck with that!

“Uncovered” speculation has gone exponential. There’s lots of “paper” gold and almost no “real” gold, which makes for a high-risk scenario — certainly if you don’t hold gold. Its higher return if you do hold gold. (Feel free to smile if you do.)


In essence, all hell has broken loose in gold trading pits. Naturally, the mainstream media (MSM) have not discussed it. No, MSM is too busy telling you how great things are again with Amazon, Tesla, Facebook, etc. That, and how inflation and unemployment are super-duper under control. The economy is growing nicely, thank you… Relax. Go shopping at the mall. Take a cruise. Buy something else you don’t need, with money you don’t have.

MSM would never bother you with the fact that there’s almost no gold in trading vaults. Nor never mind that it would take years’ worth of new mine and mill production to refill Comex to anything approaching old levels. Face it, they're “ain’t” no gold! It’s gone!

Any working, functioning “futures” market requires physical supply to backstop against calls for delivery. Makes sense, right? That’s how it works for corn, wheat, orange juice, cattle, hog bellies, everything else. You can trade cattle futures until the proverbial cows come home; at some point though, cows wind up as hamburger on supermarket shelves.

Yet with gold, there are almost no ounces of Comex gold available for the paper market. Thus is risk exploding for paper gold traders. A collapse may not happen literally overnight but we’re looking at a very dangerous situation.

By comparison, look at oil markets. With oil, there’s ample supply from six continents. I’ve read of tankers from Middle East nations literally slow-sailing the long route around Africa, to buy time for cargo owners to find a buyer at refineries in Europe or North America. Oil prices may be low by recent standards, but at least paper barrels are aligned with physical reality at wellheads and loading terminals.

The cupboard is so bare for gold that Comex could collapse into the equivalent of a “run” on vaults. If that happens — rather, “when” that happens — watch gold prices spike. On that golden day of reckoning, you’ll see more than a buying frenzy or even a panic. It’ll be utter pandemonium.

When this bomb explodes, gold prices will melt upward in ways we can scarcely imagine. Instead of a few dollars up or down on the ticker, you’ll see hundred-dollar moves in a matter of minutes. Of course, it’ll be a good day for investors who own physical metal and a strong hand of mining shares.

Here’s what to do now…

Own physical gold. If you don’t have some, get some. Go for basic bullion coins. Don’t worry about numismatic coins. Don’t pay big premiums. Just get U.S. Gold Eagles, Canadian Maple Leafs, South African Krugerrands, etc. Build your stash while you can, because some day, you won’t be able to get gold, period.

Second, you should strongly consider quality mining stocks. Right now, my stock-buying focus is on well-capitalized miners in production with a solid reserve base. Some of these companies have been beaten up so badly over these past few years, their upside is practically unlimited when gold really takes off. It’s been so bad that it’s actually getting good. It’s called a “buyer’s market.”

My view is that we’re in a sweet spot. Any rebound (short or long term) can vault you high and far when the turnaround hits. And it will hit.

Sooner or later, it will hit.

Should You Start Hoarding Gold? Some Say China's Gold Ambitions Mean You Should Keep Some Stashed At Home

China’s decision to buy its second gold storage vault in London last week was another step towards total dominance of the market.

The vault is in a secret location and was bought by Chinese state-owned bank ICBC Standard Bank from Barclays. It could store $90bn of gold at today’s prices, and follows the purchase of a lease on another vault in the capital earlier this year from Deutsche Bank.

London has been a hub for metals investment for hundreds of years, but times have changed and the big banks are pulling back from trading them.

Now China is pushing into the gold market in a big way. The reasons why are unclear, and gold continues to spawn more conspiracy theories than the moon landing, but what is known is that China has been amassing the yellow metal at a rapid pace over the last decade. Its official reserves are 1,658 tonnes as of July 2015, a small part of its overall currency reserves and far below the US’s hoard of 8,000 tonnes. Germany and the IMF have 3,000 tonnes apiece.

But China’s actual stocks could be closer to 4,000 tonnes, according to estimates based on how much it mines, imports, and stores. That would put it in second place behind the US. Given the opacity of statistics from China, it’s plausible the country has more.

Why would China keep it secret? Because openly accumulating in a relatively small market would drive the gold price up. And China is not the only buyer either. Russia and a number of other nations have been expanding their reserves too.

One possible reason for amassing a stockpile is that China recognises the world’s monetary system is effectively based on gold – a shadow gold standard if you will. That’s the argument put forward by author James Rickards in his book The New Case for Gold.

Simply put, he says the IMF is a lender of last resort for troubled states, and its source of strength ultimately rests on its masses of gold, and that of its members.

If the monetary system collapses, “gold functions like a pile of poker chips” when the world’s powerful (most gold laden) countries sit around the table and formulate a new system. “China is trying to acquire enough gold so that when the international monetary collapse comes and the world has to recut the deal, China will have a prime seat at the table,” he adds.

Even more, gold is so important the US government is deliberately talking down its true worth, Rickards says.

There hasn’t been an audit of the gold held in Fort Knox, Kentucky for 50 years and some say that means the gold isn’t really there. But Rickards says that’s what they want you to think. “Audits are reserved for important assets, not trivial ones. By refusing to do an audit, the government maintains a pretence that gold is trivial. The US government has a powerful interest in downplaying gold’s importance. The government wants its citizens to forget their gold even exists.”

Incidentally, gold has been one of the best performing investments so far this year. It’s at a 21-month high, having risen from $1,060 on 1 January to $1,285 currently.

There are lots of reasons why, but most analysts talk of fear. Stock markets have been rocky and there’s talk of a global recession coming. This is particularly since monetary policy appears to be becoming ineffective at stimulating economies, and central banks around the world have resorted to unusual methods including negative interest rates to fire them up.

If there is another collapse of the global money system coming, Rickards says gold will be the safest store of wealth and means of exchange for private citizens. He also suggests buying silver coins, currently priced around £15 each, as a practical alternative to bullion. “For around £150 you could buy 10 ounces of silver. Even people with modest means could have silver to perform the same function.”

Gold & Silver Conspiracy Theory Now A Proven Fact


The secrets are being forced out into the open! Bill Murphy, co-founder of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA.org) a renowned crusader for investigating, exposing and prosecuting gold price manipulation, returns to ReluctantPreppers to give specific evidence that proves the fact that Western banks have been illegally conspiring to suppress the price of precious metals. Murphy also weighs in on whether or not the recent move in precious metals signals a confirmed breakout in the gold and silver markets, and gives his most-likely scenario for where metals prices are going in the coming year. Don't miss it!

Michael Pento - Market Losing Faith In Value Of The Dollar


Money manager Michael says inflation has nowhere to go but up. Pento explains, “We have printed enough for this to go hyperbolic. We have plenty of excess reserves. We have already hit our core (Fed) inflation target. We are already up 2.2% year over year. If you want to be honest, we already have the condition much like the 1970’s of stagflation. . . . The Federal Reserve promised us we were on the road to recovery. They said we would be growing at 3% and we are growing at 0%. They said they could raise interest rates and normalize the Fed Funds Rate, and they can’t do it. The dollar index went up to 100 on the belief that this was going to be the case, and it is absolutely not true. That’s how the market is losing faith in the value of the dollar. We are in a condition of stagflation, make no mistake about it.”

Are we also in a recession too? Pento says, “They can do this indefinitely until inflation becomes intractable. In the United States, we are running up on 90 months of 0% interest rates, and what do we have for that? Fourth quarter GDP was 1.4%, and that was bad enough, but first quarter has a zero handle. It was 0.5%. That’s what we get for blowing up the Fed’s balance sheet to $4.5 trillion? That’s what we get for manipulating bond yields down to 0% for 90 months? We are virtually in a recession. If we are not in a recession, we are in a flat line or dead line economy, and it’s zero.

Dollar Selling Panic Coming - John Williams


Economist John Williams says it is not a matter of if, but when, there is panic dollar selling. Williams says the Fed would try to slow it down. Williams explains, “The Federal Reserve would step in and slow the pace to make it not appear like a panic. If you start to see a panic selloff (in the dollar), that’s a real bad sign. It means they are losing control of the system, and I think that is coming. The initial effect on the system for people living in the United States, as the dollar crashes, you will see inflation beginning to surge, particularly from oil and gasoline prices. Those effects will begin to spread in the system. It will change the way people look at things and will start the process that will eventually be a hyperinflation. The Fed does not have a way out of this circumstance. They have backed themselves into a corner. They have been keeping things reasonably stable, but they can’t get things going in the economy. . . . The economy is in terrible shape.”

Williams also says, “The dollar will blow up, and when I say blow up, it will collapse. There will be panic selling of the dollar, and that will intensify the inflation. The problem is they don’t have a way of avoiding it. If they could somehow get the economy back on track, they would have some room to work, I think, but the economy has never recovered.

Without Price Suppression Gold Would Be $5,000 To $10,000


If criminal bankers would not have conspired to suppress gold for the last several years, what would the price be today? Gold expert Bill Holter says, “You couldn’t have $5,000 or $10,000 gold and 0% interest rates. I think there would have been a panic into metals (gold and silver) by now because the price suppression has been used to hit people’s emotions. It’s been used to hurt their psyche. I think if they had not dumped all this paper to suppress the price, the pot would have already boiled, and there would have been a run on the banks and a run into the metals.”

So, if the banks would not have criminally suppressed the price of gold, we would already have a gold price that would be thousands of dollars higher than today. Holter says, “Yes, absolutely. Gold is real money that cannot default. That is what this is all about. When the whole system defaults, what’s going to be left standing? 
Gold and silver, real money. They are no one else’s liability.”
