Before an empire collapses, it first erodes from within.
The collapse may appear sudden, but the processes of internal rot hollowed out the resilience, resolve, purpose and vitality of the empire long before its final implosion.
This is how empires collapse: one complicit participant at a time. [Read more...]

The mainstream is on an academically-driven mission to politicize conspiracy theories and lump them all into the same category.
While gold and silver manipulation is an ancient conspiracy fact, eyes are wide shut to the general awareness in the face of one revelation after another. [Read more...]
MSM shills like Ezra Klein have long claimed that physical gold is worthless because you can’t eat it.
Seems they were wrong. [Read more...]
Gold is the only money (gold – silver ratio must float) as everyone has known for millennia. Today most people have more or less forgotten this unique role, Western central bankers have tried for a century to put lipstick on a pig, so to speak.
By deceiving us, they deceived themselves and began to believe their own nonsense. A historical failure and on a global scale looms. We need to recognize it in order to find the impetus beneath our feet allowing us to arise from the depth of this graveyard.
BRICS countries do not necessarily need the West to initiate this new settlement system. It must be noted in this respect what it can supersede. The dollar currency and U.S. Treasury at the foundation of famous “petrodollars” are replaced by the Gold Bills that will allow buying oil.
The new system will likelydecouple these two functions. The income function can be brought (at appropriate time) by introducing gold bonds, that is to say bonds denominated in gold weight (ie not merely an obligation backed by gold collateral denominated in fiat currency – a.k.a. gold backed bonds), with interests denominated in gold weight and whose principal is redeemable in gold weight.
Fundamentals create charts, and when those fundamentals change, the picture on the charts changes quickly.
The precious metals world changed in 2013.
A gold bull market in gold ended, and a gold bull era began. [Read more...]
In February, I highlighted the fact that subprime loans were about to make a return in my piece: Subprime Mortgages are Back…This Time Marketed as “Second Chance Purchase Programs.” In that article, I posited that with the “all cash” private equity shops and hedge funds no longer able to make good returns through buying new homes to rent, these investors would need some sucker to sell to in order to realize a return (Blackstone’s purchases have plunged 70% recently). That sucker, as always, will be the retail muppets, and those muppets will be lured in through subprime. This is now starting to happen in earnest.
Did the NSA Blackmail Obama? Whistle-blower Claims NSA Targeted Obama “Word for Word” Beginning in 2004
In what is the most ironic of any of the NSA Prism-gate revelations to date, NSA Whistle-blower Russ Tice has revealed that the NSA began targeting President Obama in 2004 prior to his run for the Illinois Senate seat.
Tice states that the NSA targeted Obama, his spouse, his entire family, and all of Obama’s staff members, and that the monitoring was NOT simply meta data, but that Obama’s communications were targeted by the NSA: ”24/7, word for word what was said and typed into their emails. Was Obama blackmailed? I don’t know the answer to that, but what is the justification for Obama turning against his campaign promises and his supposed love for the Constitution?”

In the past week, the Shanghai Futures Exchange suffered another large withdrawal of silver from its warehouse stocks.
The Shanghai Futures Exchange has had another 41 metric tons (1.3 million oz) of silver withdrawn since April 10th.

In a MUST SEE interview with Bloomberg, Albert Cheng, the World Gold Council’s Managing Director, Far East dropped 2 bombshells regarding Chinese gold demand.
First, Cheng revealed that nearly every Chinese Bank is now selling gold over the counter directly to the public, and Cheng also made the shocking revelation that over 100,000 gold dealers are now selling gold to the public in China.
To put this number in perspective, the number of US retail locations for McDonalds, Subway, and Starbucks COMBINED… are only 50,000! [Read more...]
With BrightSource Energy donating cash to Harry Reid’s political slush fund, and with Harry Reid in control of the BLM via Neil Korntze, it should be pretty clear why Harry Reid has pro-actively taken a public stand and unleashed verbal violence on the BLM/Bundy battle. I have a good hunch he’s close to getting a big solar deal clinched from which he’ll stand to make a lot of money eventually and he needs the Gold Butte piece to cement the deal.
That truth is, given Harry Reid’s history of abusing the power of his Senate seat – Reid is the one who is the terrorist.
The US recovery is so strong, that Family Dollar is closing 370 stores!
When I learned of this, I was quite stunned.
If nothing is done about the long-term trends that are slowly strangling the middle class to death, this will just be the beginning.
We will see millions more Americans lose their jobs, millions more Americans lose their homes and millions more Americans living in poverty.
The United States is being fundamentally transformed, and very few people are doing much of anything to stand in the way of this transformation. Decades of incredibly foolish decisions are starting to catch up with us, and unless something dramatic is done right away, all of these problems will soon get much, much worse.
If you were to base your decision-making on news alone, one is not making any money from buying gold. Does that mean one should refrain from buying it? The best answer comes from knowing your objectives.
If you want security from the out-of-control fiat spending of all Western governments, then yes, this continues to be the time to buy gold, [and silver]. In addition to the insane and unprecedented creation of “money out of thin air,” world-wide events are turning darker and darker. Gold and silver remain one of the best means for attaining financial peace of mind, and one of the best forms of wealth preservation. In this regard, price is of no consequence. Ownership is.
Stay the course.
In this interview with Finance & Liberty’s Elijah Johnson, Greg Mannarino makes the incredible claims that the DOW may be about to collapse to 4,000, gold & silver are set to EXPLODE, & states that the US dollar is about to die, and be replaced by the Yuan as the global reserve currency.
Mannarino’s full interview on the coming complete collapse of the dollar & US market is below: [Read more...]
