GREAT TRANSITION – GLOBAL CURRENCY RESET:

silver-eagle-coinKeith Neumeyer, the CEO of First Majestic Silver Corp returns to dissect the documented manipulation of the silver market in 2016, and the road ahead.
As we post this interview, the stated US debt is on the cusp of $20 Trillion, Bitcoin just surpassed $1,025 yet silver sits around $16. But the hard numbers outlined at US Debt Clock.org show that the REAL silver price in today’s dollars should be $1,005/ounce.
Only the clear and present manipulation of the precious metals is keeping them from reaching Bitcoin’s heights.

JP MorganI invested into Silver between 2010 and August 2011…..needless to say, I have been hurt holding this Metal.
If I would have been a little more open minded, I would have gone ALL IN on Bitcoin.

Brexit, Trump, and the Failed Italian Referendum Point to One Thing: A Worldwide BACKLASH Against Elite Rule.

Over the weekend, America’s leading economists gathered in Chicago for their annual AEA conference. The mood perfectly encapsulates the state of affairs of a profession that is more to blame for our current predicament than any other.

end-collapseWhat will the end of 2017 look like?  Financial analyst Bill Holter says,
We are going to have to have some sort of reset. The reset will include a bank holiday. Your ATM won’t work. Your credit cards won’t work. Distribution is going to fail. It’s all about credit. Everything financial and everything economic relies on credit. I believe that we are going to have a credit crisis this year where credit becomes very scarce or actually dries up completely.  You are talking about distribution breaking down and people going hungry, riots, martial law, cross default from country to country to country to country, bank to bank to bank and broker to broker to broker. Everything runs and lives on credit, and without credit, it’s almost like caveman days.”
